Woodford rail station on 5 April at 12.55am

Stratford rail station on 2 April at 10.15pm

Bow Road rail station on 2 April at 1pm

Leytonstone rail station on 5 April at 5.40am

The man, on every occasion, approached the defibrillator cabinet at the station, opened it up and took the defibrillator out. He then either placed it into a bag or under his jacket and left the station.

Investigating officer DC Angie Gates said: “We believe that all five incidents are linked and I am keen to speak to anyone who may hold information or knows the person in the CCTV image, who I am keen to speak to and who...

Appeal After Schoolboy Racially Abused and Assaulted on Train in Manchester

June 22, 2016, 1:48 pm

The incident occurred on Wednesday, 4 May, shortly before 5pm.

Investigating officer PC Lee Valentine said: “The victim boarded the 4.56pm East Didsbury to Manchester Piccadilly service and was immediately subject to a barrage of vile racist abuse by a fellow passenger who had boarded the service at East Didsbury.

“The man, who had distinctive tattooed hands, then got up from this seat and headbutted his terrified victim.

“The boy was left cut, bruised and upset by this totally unprovoked, racially motivated attack. It is vital we find the man responsible. Violence such as this has no place on the rail network.

“I believe the man in the images has information about this incident. Who is he?”

Anyone with information is asked to contact...

Police Issue New Chelmsford Murder Appeal

June 22, 2016, 1:33 pm

The detective leading the investigation into the murder of a young father from Chelmsford says despite the release of two men from bail without charge it is a ‘matter of time’ before the investigation establishes evidence to prosecute those responsible.

Ladimeji ‘Ladi’ Benson, 27, was stabbed during an altercation involving a number of people in Baddow Road, at the junction of Longfields Road, at about 6.45pm on November 10, 2015. He was with a group of men who flagged down an ambulance in Broomfield Road about ten minutes later and he was taken to Broomfield Hospital where he died from his injuries.

Following a comprehensive police investigation, two 20-year-old men from Chelmsford who were arrested on suspicion of murder have been released from bail without charge and currently face no further action due to insufficient evidence.

Police: THE JUDGE WHO PRAISED A CHILD KILLER

Written by RSS Poster The Justice of the Peace
Another father has been jailed for killing his own young daughter.  Nobody can feel anything but profound sorrow.  Apparently there has been an inquiry into how this evil man was granted custody.  This time it seems that the usual suspects were blameless.  The agencies involved did all they legally could to protect this unfortunate child. It would appear from reports that the judge involved in awarding this future child killer custody had been advised of his violent history and in her judgement went further than the law required in ensuring that all agencies and personnel involved with the child be informed of his absolute innocence of a charge of violence against his daughter for which he had been previously jailed.  The judge retired very recently; so recently that it was just three weeks before the killer went on trial.  Perhaps that was a coincidence; perhaps not.  Investigation by the Judicial Conduct Investigations Office cannot now take place.  Earlier this year it became policy that police...

Police: Alert: Fraudsters taking advantage of the Rio Olympics 2016

Written by RSS Poster ActionFraud's blog

As the start of the 2016 summer games in Rio de Janeiro approaches, the increase in media coverage provides an opportunity for criminals to take advantage of people’s familiarity with the Olympic brand for their own gain.

The National Fraud Intelligence Bureau (NFIB) has analysed reports from Action Fraud and found that the Rio 2016 Olympics’ name appears in frauds such as Lottery Scams, Financial Investments and Tickets.

Lottery Scams 

Fraudsters are sending letters and emails informing victims that they are the winner of a cash prize and a trip to the Olympics in Rio courtesy of the event organisers in Brazil or the International Olympic Committee.

Never respond to any such communication. If you have not entered a lottery then you cannot have won it. 

Genuine lotteries thrive on publicity, if they ask you to keep your win a secret; it is likely to be a fraud. Find out how to protect yourself.

Ticket Scams

There will be very high demand for tickets to the Rio Olympic Games and that...

Police Appeal Following Racially Aggravated Attack On Vehicle in Halifax

June 21, 2016, 2:21 pm

Police are issuing CCTV stills of men they want to speak to in connection with a racially aggravated attack on a vehicle.

Calderdale Police would like to speak with anyone who recognises the men following an incident on Claremont Road, Halifax on April 10 2016.

It took place after the victim, a 33-year-old man who was delivering pizza, was approached by three white men at about 7.50pm after parking his car.

The victim was then racially abused by suspects who caused a substantial amount of damage to his car before making off.

PC Carl Gallagher of Calderdale Police, said: “Enquiries have been progressing into this assault and we would like to speak with anyone who can help us identify the men pictured or the white Peugeot 206 derived van.

“This vehicle had black...

Police: THE VERY FIRST CRIMINAL BEHAVIOUR ORDER//HEARD BUT NOT MADE

Written by RSS Poster The Justice of the Peace
A year or so before the authorities in their infinite wisdom considered that I was too senile to continue serving as a magistrate..........I know.........unless old codgers are ejected where is the room for all those enthusiastic would be J.P.s to do their bit for queen and country........but to continue.........an order for a criminal behaviour order for a just convicted offender was placed before us by the CPS on behalf of the police. A police officer who was called as witness described himself as probably the country`s expert on the application of what was then a brand new disposal.  CPS then told us that it was highly probable that this being new legislation was the first time such an application had been made in any court.  We all listened intently to the witness whilst our legal advisor leafed through the various law books and information sheets on her desk.  After the witness`s testimony we were handed some of the information sheets.  And then we came across the paragraph...

A Whitehaven man has been sentenced to 8 years in prison for raping a 13-year-old boy.

He has also been ordered to sign the Sex Offenders Register for life.

He was found guilty of the offence, which took place in 2001, at an earlier hearing.

Detective Constable Hayley Carson said:
“Justice has been served today thanks to the bravery and strength of the victim in being able to tell the story of what happened to him at the hands of Hudson.

“The attack occurred more than 15 years ago but continues to have a detrimental effect on the victim’s life. The actions of offenders like Hudson leave long lasting effects on their victims – vulnerable, innocent children. I hope that...

Police: ABORTION LAW IN NORTHERN IRELAND

Written by RSS Poster The Justice of the Peace
In April I posted on the law on abortion as it affects Northern Ireland.  It truly can be said that in many respects Ulster is a law unto itself.  The political and social history of the province in the last hundred years is far removed from any similarity to the rest of the U.K. 

An attempt has begun today in the High Court in Belfast to reverse a ruling that abortion law in Northern Ireland is "incompatible" with human rights law. It seems that there is going to be an almighty clash between die hard reactionaries who would do the late Dr Ian Paisley proud and those who would drag this aspect of Northern Ireland legislation kicking and screaming into the 21st century. 

It is paradoxical that pregnant women with their different heritages seeking abortion from either side of the border   must travel to another country, usually the U.K., for the procedure to be carried out.
