  • 1 dead, 3 injured in Dixfield car crashDIXFIELD (WGME) -- Dixfield police say one person died on Saturday after a multi-vehicle crash on Route 2 near a Maine DOT garage. Officials say the fatal crash happened around 4:30 p.m. Police say a Toyota sedan, driven by 86-year-old Paul Stucki of Winslow, was heading east on Route 2 when he crossed the centerline and hit a second vehicle, driven by 54-old-year June Lauter of Wisconsin, head-on.

    Police say a third vehicle, a Ford truck driven by Brad St. Pierre of Topsham, had to swerve. He was able to avoid colliding with the two other vehicles.

    St. Pierre had three juveniles with him in the truck. They did not sustain any injuries.

    Stucki died at Central Maine Medical Center. His wife, Joyce, remains in critical condition. Lauter and her passenger, Judith Lohr, suffered multiple fractures, but officials say their injuries are not considered non-life threatening.

    The crash is still under investigation. Police do not know why Stucki crossed the centerline. Officials say alcohol, drugs and speed don't appear to be factors in the crash.

  • 10 Disturbing Unsolved Cases Of Missing HeadsCrime Robert Grimminck February 21, 2016 Decapitations are unsettling simply because they re gruesome. Yet, despite the barbaric nature of the act, there are plenty of reasons why someone chooses to decapitate another person. It s even more disturbing when someone s head is cut off and the head is never found.

    10 Robert Hollis On the afternoon of June 4, 2015, 75-year-old Robert Hollis s son was checking in on him after neighbors grew concerned because they hadn t seen the elderly man, affectionately nicknamed Mr. Bojangles, in a few days. When the son entered his partially blind father s Inglewood, California, apartment, he made a gruesome discovery: His father was dead and decapitated.

    Even more disturbing, the killer took Hollis s head when he or she left the apartment. It has never been found. Hollis s family is unsure who would have killed the elderly man because he didn t have any enemies.

    He was even friends with his ex-wife. His family also said that valuables in the house were untouched. Police are still looking into the death.

    The mayor of Inglewood also arranged a $50,000 reward for information regarding the murder. Despite this, no arrests have been made.

    9 The Cheltenham Torso Mystery On February 3, 1938, fishermen on the Severn River near Cheltenham, England, found a man s torso tangled up in their nets. When it was examined, officials said that it appeared to be the torso of a well-fed, middle-aged man.

    One arm had been removed cleanly, but the other one had been hacked off with an axe. The river was dragged. The man s legs and arms turned up, but no head or hands could be found.

    Without them, police weren t able to identify the body or determine the cause of death. Speculation arose that the body belonged to 52-year-old Captain William Butt, who had lived in Cheltenham with his invalid wife and her live-in nurse, Irene Sullivan. Butt had gone missing in January 1938.

    The theory was that Irene Sullivan and her 28-year-old son, Brian, were arranging illegal abortions. Brian, who worked as a dancer and a gigolo, was also having a sexual affair with Butt. At some point, something went wrong with the relationship, and Butt threatened to expose the illegal abortion ring.

    Two weeks after the torso was discovered, Brian committed suicide by gassing himself inside his home. Under some flagstones on his property, police found Butt s keys and his coat, which was covered in blood. As the body was never identified, the case remains unresolved.

    8 Wallingford Body In A Box On the morning of August 8, 1886, a man was walking his dog in the township of Wallingford, Connecticut, when he came across a box that was 75 centimeters (30 in) long and 30 centimeters (12 in) wide. It looked like the box was full of shoes. As the dog got closer, it became interested in the box.

    But the man could smell an awful aroma emanating from it. The man went home, gathered up some neighbors, and they went back to the box. They opened it and found that the box was lined with tar paper.

    Inside, there was also a man s torso. The medical examiner found no marks on the chest that would indicate how the man died, and there was not much decomposition. During the autopsy, it was discovered that the man s stomach was full of arsenic.

    So the medical examiner believed that the man had been poisoned. The ME also thought that the man had been about 30 years old and had probably weighed around 80 kilograms (175 lb). After the murder, the townspeople found a bag at the bottom of a well.

    But when they returned the next day to retrieve the bag, they couldn t find it. The only evidence that it had ever been there was a piece of human scalp that was found next to the well. It was believed that the killer was hiding near the well and then moved the bag after it was discovered.

    Later, in September 1886, the legs and arms were found near the body wrapped in paper similar to the tar paper that had lined the box. The police traced the box from a shoe company in Fall River, Massachusetts, to a wholesaler in Chicago. The wholesaler had kept the box in the backyard of his store until it was purchased by a young man who supposedly disappeared.

    Any eyewitnesses either recanted their stories or refused to answer any questions. Eventually, all the leads went cold.

    7 Russell And Shirley Dermond Russell Dermond, 88, and his wife, Shirley, 87, lived in a waterfront gated community on Lake Oconee in Georgia. They had been married for 68 years.

    On May 6, 2014, some friends went to the Dermonds house. Inside the garage, they found Russell s headless body, but Shirley was missing. Ten days later, her body was pulled from the lake by a pair of fishermen.

    She had been killed by multiple blows to the head, possibly with a hammer. Police said that they had forensic evidence but no suspect to whom they could match it. They believe that the motive for the double murder of the couple was most likely robbery or extortion.

    They also think that the killer or killers arrived at the house via a boat. This is how the killers would have avoided cameras at the gated community. Police believe that at some point, the killer went into the yard where he was seen by eyewitnesses.

    But no description was given, except that it was a man.

    6 The Norfolk Duchess On August 27, 1974, near Swaffham in Norfolk, England, a man walking on the beach found a badly decaying woman s body wrapped in a plastic sheet that was bound with some rope. When the police opened the plastic sheet, they found that the victim was headless, her hands and feet were bound, and she was wearing a pink 1969 Marks & Spencer nightdress. The medical examiner said that the woman was probably between the ages of 23 and 35.

    Besides the body, the police had a few unique clues to investigate. The plastic sheet had the National Cash Register s logo printed on it, and it was one of only six sheets made. The rope was also unusual.

    It was made using four threads, but most rope is made from three or five threads. Yet, after a long investigation, the sheet and the rope didn t lead anywhere. In 2008, the body was exhumed, and tests were performed.

    They learned that the woman had probably given birth, had drunk water in Scotland, and had eaten a lot of fish and crab. From reports, it is believed that she might have been a prostitute, known only as The Duchess, who came from Denmark and worked the Great Yarmouth docks. The Duchess disappeared around the time that the body was found.

    Police are hoping that DNA will help them to identify the woman s family in the near future.

    5 St. Louis John Doe Photo credit: Warren County Sheriff s Office via foxnews.com In 1987, a hunter came across the headless and handless body of a man in a wooded area near St. Louis, Missouri.

    Police believe that the man was between 35 and 45 years old. He was white and had seven broken ribs. He also had a scar on his abdomen, possibly from an old gunshot wound that wasn t treated professionally.

    The man was dressed well. He was wearing a dark blue T-shirt from that year s Rose Bowl. It declared the Michigan Wolverines as the champions.

    He was also wearing new, white Nike high-tops and Oscar de la Renta jeans. In his pockets, there was 82 cents and a token from the Kansas City International Airport. There were also traces of alcohol and cocaine in his system, leading to some speculation that the headless man was involved in the drug trade.

    It was also believed that he had died four or five days prior to being found and then his body was dumped in the wooded area. In March 2015, the body was exhumed with the hopes that further tests would help to identify the victim. If he was identified, that information has not been made public as of February 2016.

    4 Julia Baez Photo credit: Jackson County Sheriff s Office via wqow.com On October 10, 1990, body parts of a woman were found in two shallow graves in an industrial park in Brockway, Wisconsin. The dismembered body parts were wrapped in garbage bags, but the head was nowhere to be found. The recovered body parts were buried, and the case went cold.

    The woman would remain a Jane Doe for 25 years until her body was exhumed in 2015 and a DNA test was performed. When compared to a database for missing and unidentified people, they discovered that Jane Doe was really Julia Baez, a 36-year-old mother of four from Milwaukee. Her home was about a three-hour drive from the grave where her body was found.

    The last time anyone had seen Baez was in June 1990. Her family had spent years looking for her, and her children had given their DNA to the database, which is how investigators made the match. Police hope that identifying the victim will give them new leads as to who is responsible for Baez s death and dismemberment.

    3 The Kharkiv Beheadings On the night of December 15, 2012, police believe that at least two people entered the home of Volodymyr Trofimov. He was a judge in Kharkiv, Ukraine s second-largest city. Once inside the home, the intruders attacked the judge, his wife, Irina, his 30-year-old son, Sergei, and his son s 29-year-old girlfriend, Marina Zoueva.

    The judge, Irina, and Marina were all killed and then beheaded with some type of long blade. Sergei, on the other hand, was decapitated while he was still alive. Their heads were never found.

    There are three main theories as to why the judge and his family were murdered. According to the first theory, the attack was symbolic. In Ukraine, December 15 the day of the deaths is known as Judge s Day, a day to celebrate the country s judges.

    Ukrainians were unhappy with their justice system at the time of the murders. So the decapitations could have been a symbolic attack against the justice system. The second theory is that the murders could have been revenge for any number of cases that Trofimov presided over during his 30 years as a judge.

    The final theory is that the murders occurred as part of a robbery. The judge was a world-renowned collector of coins and antiques. A number of antiques were stolen after the murder, but it is unclear if that was actually the reason for the murders.

    With so many theories and not enough clues, the high-profile case has gone cold.

    2 Peter Levine After school on February 24, 1938, 12-year-old Peter Levine of New Rochelle, New York, was walking home with a friend. Along the way, Peter stopped off at a hardware store. After he left the store, he disappeared.

    Peter was from a well-off family. His father was a high-end New York lawyer. The family received three ransom notes demanding $60,000.

    Peter s father tried to follow the instructions on the notes, but the kidnapper(s) went silent. The kidnapping made national headlines. It was made into movie reels shown in movie theaters, and it was talked about on national radio programs.

    On May 29, three months after the kidnapping, Peter s headless and mutilated corpse washed up on the shore of Glen Lake, not far from where he had disappeared. His hands and feet were also missing. The boy s body was bound in copper wire, and he was wearing the same clothes that he had been wearing when he went missing.

    Stitched into his clothes was his name, confirming that it was Peter. The FBI investigated the kidnapping and murder, but no suspects were ever named.

    1 St. Louis Jane Doe On February 28, 1983, a car carrying two men broke down near an abandoned apartment building in St.

    Louis, Missouri. The two men ventured into the building looking for a pipe to repair their car. Instead of finding what they needed, the men came across the headless body of an African-American girl.

    The medical examiner believed that the girl was 7 12 years old. She had been strangled three to five days before her body was found. After her death, she had also been decapitated with a long-bladed knife.

    Her hands were bound, but it wasn t clear if she had been sexually assaulted. Lastly, she died and was decapitated elsewhere, and then her body was dumped in the building. The police checked all of the schools in the area to see if any children were missing, but everyone was accounted for.

    When no one claimed the body, she was buried as a Jane Doe. The case went cold, but it wasn t forgotten. In 2009, the police tried to exhume the body.

    But the cemetery had become defunct over the years, and the donated marker was placed on the wrong grave. So no one knew the actual location of the body. A group of volunteers finally found the grave, and the body was exhumed in summer 2013.

    Through mineral tests, it was determined where the girl had probably spent most of her life because of the water she had drunk. It is believed that she probably lived in one of 10 states in the Southeast: Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, North Carolina, or South Carolina. The identity of the girl, the whereabouts of her head, and the person or persons involved with her murder remain a mystery.

  • 103 families able to buy their own home in Great Yarmouth thanks to ... I have welcomed new figures showing that Help to Buy, the Conservative scheme to help people access an affordable mortgage with a small deposit, has helped 103 families to buy their own home in Great Yarmouth. Across the country, Help to Buy has now enabled nearly 90,000 families to buy their own home with over 80 per cent of sales going to first-time buyers. This comes in the same week the Prime Minister committed the next Conservative Government to delivering 200,000 new Starter Homes by 2020 good quality homes that will be sold at 20 per cent below the market price and be reserved for first-time buyers only under the age of 40.

    This is all part of the Conservatives long-term economic plan that is getting Britain building again. House building is now at its highest level since 2007, meaning more people are able to get on in life and find a home of their own. Conservatives believe that everyone who works hard should be able to have a home of their own.

    But when we came to office, too many people couldn t afford the huge deposit they needed to get on the housing ladder. We weren t prepared to let that continue which is why, as part of our long-term economic plan, we launched Help to Buy so people could get an affordable mortgage with only a 5 per cent deposit. Since this was launched a total of 103 families have been able to get on the housing ladder in Great Yarmouth.

    Every additional family that is able to get on the housing ladder is one more family able to enjoy the security and peace of mind that comes from owning your own home.

    Only the Conservatives have a plan to make sure everyone who works hard can have a home of their own.

  • 193 million for new flood defences in eastern England Homes in Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft and along the Thames Estuary in Essex will be better protected from floods thanks to an unprecedented six-year 2.3 billion flood defence programme, benefiting the region to the tune of 193 million, which was announced by the government today. The new phase one flood defence scheme at the Thames Estuary, just one of 92 schemes in the area getting the green light today, is worth over 62 million. This scheme consists of a number of flood defences that will protect communities, homes and businesses located along the estuary.

    Other schemes that will protect homes and businesses in the area include: New tidal defences, costing over 17 million, will help protect homes and businesses in Great Yarmouth. Many people were affected by the tidal surge last December and this continued investment will help protect them from high seas in the future.

    18.6 million will continue the investment in delivering a new coast protection scheme for Clacton-on-Sea and Holland-on-Sea. These defences will protect homes and businesses along a 6km stretch of the coastline and encourage further regeneration of the area.

    7 million of government funding is set to be contributed to a new flood defence scheme at Lowestoft which will help protect around 840 properties. Danny Alexander, the Chief Secretary to the Treasury said: By investing 193m in 92 flood defence schemes across East Anglia, we can protect homes, businesses and whole communities from the devastating effects of flooding. Investing 2.3 billion to support 1,400 schemes across the country will protect 300,000 homes from the north-east to the south-west.

    As well as ensuring people s safety and peace of mind it will also bring over 30 billion of economic benefit, making it great value for money as part of this government s drive for a stronger economy and a fairer society. Environment Secretary Elizabeth Truss said: Flood protection is vital and under our plans 92 schemes, including the Lowestoft scheme, will reduce the risk in vulnerable areas, bringing peace of mind to residents and businesses. We are spending 3.2 billion in flood management and defences over the course of this parliament - half a billion pounds more than in the previous parliament.

    This, combined with the record level of investment in capital we have set out today, will improve protection to 465,000 homes and businesses by the end of the decade. Environment Agency Chairman Sir Philip Dilley said: Our priority is to do as much as we can with every pound of funding from government and local partners, we now expect to provide better flood protection to an additional 300,000 properties in England by the end of the decade. With one in six homes in England at risk of flooding, and recognising the risk of flooding can never be eliminated, we would also encourage people to take their own steps to prepare for flooding, for example by signing up to the Environment Agency s free flood warning service.

    This first ever long-term investment programme will protect 17,134 properties in this region alone and save the national economy 2.7 billion by 2021. The lifetime benefits of this investment will be even higher at over 30bn. New schemes may also be added as the programme progresses.

    Since the beginning of this parliament flood defence investment has improved protection to over 230,000 homes and over 580,000 acres of land in England. This new investment will protect at least another 300,000 homes by the end of the decade. The investment programme was published alongside a new long term study from the Environment Agency 1 which shows that the planned investment will reduce overall flood and coastal erosion risk in England.

Via Coronation Street is looking into the confusion surrounding the age of the show s new recruit Katie Redford over claims she is 11 years older than her character.

    Actress Redford has landed the role of Sarah Platt s 14-year-old daughter Bethany, who will be returning to Weatherfield as a regular character in the spring. When Redford s casting was announced on Friday (January 16), an official ITV press release billed the actress as a 19-year-old.

  • 28th March 2011 RNIB Digital TV, Sensory Support and Buses ... Description: An Eye with a lightning bolt slashed across it with a banner overlaid on yellow sand spreading to the blue sea in bright sunshine. Minutes of General Meeting Held on 28th March 2011 at 2:30pm At Wherry Way Communal Room, Caister Road, Great Yarmouth Before the meeting began, the Group was informed that the NHS fruit and vegetable van was at Wherry Way every Monday from 1pm, and that members were invited to purchase fresh produce and eggs at very reasonable prices before meetings. David Wilkinson chaired the meeting, which was attended by 23 members and guests.

    Apologies had been received from Judy Morrow, Liz Price and John Kempster. Sarah Morris, Matron of the Ophthalmic Ward and JPH and Penny Leggett from Yare Care, had been expected to attend the meeting, but did not arrive. The minutes of the previous meeting were approved.

    There had been a meeting the previous week with police. Members were informed that once they had initial contact with the police over any matter, they would agree a password to facilitate further communication. Tim reported that he had experience of this system and that it had worked well.

    In response to a query from Linda, the Group were informed that individuals choose a password and inform the police what it is. It was suggested that the visit from the fire brigade be re-scheduled for a future meeting. Paul Bowerbank from the Sensory Support Unit expressed his thanks for the support of the group and individual members during the difficult past 6 months, during which the Unit was first threatened with closure and then had funding cut drastically.

    The campaigns, letters and petitions had made a significant difference to the outcome, and whilst the level of support was going to be severely affected by funding cutbacks, the Unit was still able to run a restricted support service for Visually Impaired, Blind and Deaf people. He explained that the County Council had a legal requirement to provide certain services, but non-statutory services would no longer be provided, and there would be staff redundancies. At present the Unit had 5,000 pieces of equipment on permanent loan, and between 12 14,000 people had in the past received new services, repairs and replacements from the Unit who would now have to make their own arrangements.

    The Unit would still give advice about where to obtain equipment. Paul was currently working on two options for the future of the Unit Option 1 ? that the Deaf Association might employ some staff to assess needs and sell equipment, and Option 2 ?

    that the current service provided to the Deaf/Blind be retained and reviewed after 12 months. Clients would eventually be responsible for managing their own personal budgets. There was no capacity to further increase the service provided.

    The budget for work with the deaf would not be verified until 5th April, but it had been proposed to retain a social worker for deaf people. Paul Bowerbank was qualified to carry out social work assessments and reassured members that critical needs will be met. With regard to the visual impairment side of the Sensory Support Unit, there were currently 5 full time rehabilitation officers, and it was hoped to retain 4 of them.

    One had already succeeded in finding alternative employment and would not be replaced. Although it was not definite, it was hoped that the Unit would retain one Social Worker and one Social Work Assistant. This would depend on the outcome of a meeting with the Assistant Director to discuss ways of making cutbacks in the region of 56,000.

    One duty worker post at the Sensory Support Unit had been cut, so it would not always be possible to contact the Unit directly. It was expected that in future all equipment other than mobility aids would have to be purchased by individuals, but Paul was willing to compile a list of people approved to carry out work adapting homes to meet the requirements of blind and visually impaired people. He would need to liaise with the NNAB about future replacement of existing replacement equipment, e.g.

    white canes with balls on the end, as these would no longer be automatically available. Penny Cox questioned whether there would in future be a longer wait for new clients to be assessed. At present there are two teams of social workers/ rehabilitation workers who receive referrals from the Queen Elizabeth Hospital at King?s Lynn, James Paget and the Norfolk & Norwich, who are responsible for ensuring that legal requirements are met and that advice was provided to clients about other sources of advice and support, but this level of support was not likely to continue.

    Liz Kitchener asked whether the Sensory Support Unit had a backlog of unused stock which the NNAB could take over, but Paul was unable to make any commitment at this stage about the disposal of equipment held by the Sensory Support Unit as this was the property of Norfolk County Council. As an employee of Norfolk County Council he was not at liberty to make decisions of that nature, nor had he followed up an approach from ITV to appear in a feature involving the Norfolk Coalition of Disabled People which Siobhan had also been contacted about. Paul was thanked for contributing to the meeting and updating members of the current situation with the Sensory Support Unit.

    David then welcomed Peter Atkin from the RNIB who had been invited to talk to the group about the changeover to Digital television. The changeover to Digital television in Norfolk would take place in two stages, on 9th and 23rd November, when all analogue reception would disappear. The change would mean a fairer deal in that everyone would have access to channels currently available only to those with a Freeview box or television with built-in Freeview, and there would be better quality reception, both in sound and picture quality, and better access to audio description.

    There are 4 different ways to go digital ? with existing equipment which is Sky satellite based, through a Freeview box, via Cable and via Freesat which is a BBC/ITV initiative similar to Sky but with no monthly payments, and restricted to 12 English channels. To qualify for access to the Helpscheme, it is necessary to meet one of the following criteria 1.

    be over 75 2. be in receipt of Attendance Allowance, DLA, Income Support or Pension Credits 3. be Registered blind or partially sighted.

    There was a 40 subsidy, and an engineer would check the aerial for digital signal, set up a Freeview box, and show how to use the handset. A customer helpline would be available 24/7 and work would be guaranteed for 18 months. Existing Sky, Cable and Freesat networks are already digital-ready, and existing Freeview boxes will need to be re-tuned.

    Peter then demonstrated the difference audio description made to a brief extract from an episode of Eastenders, which was very interesting and informative. He said that in the first week of any new film, Odeon cinemas included audio description, and that the RNIB was pushing for Museums, Art Galleries and major sporting venues to offer audio description. In answer to a question about digital radio, Peter said that it was the government rather than the BBC which was delaying a switchover, but it will take at least two years.

    The present quality of digital radio is very variable. Peter had brought copies of a helpful and well-produced booklet about the changeover to Digital TV in different formats for members to take away. Peter was thanked for his entertaining and informative talk.

    Chris Maule-Oatway from NNAB spoke about the unexpected and sudden introduction of further restrictions for use of senior citizen and disabled persons? bus passes, which were mainly reduced hours for travelling free of charge, and the withdrawal of free passes for sighted companions. The public consultation had not been well publicized and was undertaken mainly by phone calls and via the internet.

    Chris said that he had completed an emailed questionnaire as an individual pass holder, not as an NNAB representative. A Scrutiny Panel had been asked to look at the case for withdrawing the new restrictions to the times pass holders were allowed to use their passes, and Chris suggested that members write to local councillors and the MP to explain the hardship the restriction causes, and keeping any bus tickets purchased outside of the time the pass was valid. This was a cost-cutting exercise undertaken by Norfolk County Council, and only a relatively small number of blind people were involved, though the impact the change would make on them was potentially a big issue, for example in terms of getting to college on time, being able to undertake voluntary work and going to shops before they got busy.

    The new restrictions were not being enforced by all bus companies. David agreed to include a list of names councillors? names with the minutes.

    Chris was thanked for attending the meeting and keeping members informed. Ian Hardy encouraged members to sign up for one of the visits to Great Yarmouth Potteries with Liz or Wendy. Members should make their own way there.

    In terms of local government cutbacks, Ian said that Great Yarmouth Borough Council was revising its own management structure, and that cutting back of some services would be essential. He encouraged the VIP User Group members to keep themselves well informed, research well as they usually do, get hold of the facts and ask pertinent questions. The Group agreed to send an official letter to the Chief Executive of the Borough Council, and members were encouraged to make individual representations about ways in which cutbacks would affect them personally.

    Under the terms of the Freedom of Information Act, people could expect to be dealt with respectfully and have their issues and concerns addressed sympathetically. Members had met with the MP about the King Street crossing hazard, and he may try to lobby to have it sorted out. Penny would invite Sarah Morris to the July meeting to feedback on developments since her previous visit to the group.

    Chris Stanley from the Lions Club would be bringing his ?silent? electric car for members to listen to. On 11th May there would be a demonstration in London about rights for people with disabilities which Penny encouraged members to take part in.

    Trains would be going from Norwich. The Craft Club was meeting each Friday, doing basket work, coffee morning at Hall Quay each 2nd Friday, Book Club at the Library on the last Friday of each month, and Sailing would begin on Tuesdays in May. The consultation at Christchurch about changes to DLA was attended by 86 people, and the VIP Group was well represented.

    The RNIB was launching a national campaign to remove cars and obstructions off pavements. Penny would keep the meeting informed about this. George raised a question about the possibility of a bus shelter being provided at Prince of Wales?

    Road at Caister. There was some confusion about who was responsible for provision of bus shelters, but it was suggested that he should contact a member of his Parish Council in the first instance. There had been no reply from the Council to letters about the provision of more pedestrian crossings in Gorleston.

    Concern was expressed about the lack of safe crossing places between Middleton Road and Bridge Road, and from Links Road to the seafront. Darren said he was concerned about the hazard of wheelie bins on pavements in Great Yarmouth, and wondered whether it would be possible to have them marked with yellow and black tape if it was impractical to remove them. The next meeting will be at 2pm on 23rd May 2011 at Wherry Way.

  • 30 jobs created in firm's move to Beacon Park Gorleston Trevor Wainwright, leader of Great Yarmouth Borough Council Picture: James Bass Stephen Pullinger 1 Friday, December 13, 2013 12:32 PM More than 30 jobs have been created by the expansion of a global energy firm on to Beacon Park, Gorleston. To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in. US-based Hydra Rig, which makes nitrogen converters and coiled tubing units for the oil and gas industry, has invested about 3.5m dollars into new 30,000sq ft premises on the park which is part of the Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft (New Anglia) Enterprise Zone.

    General manager Chris Aulert said: Since arriving in Yarmouth 13 years ago we have steadily expanded on to four sites employing nearly 140 people; we found ourselves needing more space and initially the only available space we could find was in Norwich. He confessed it had taken considerable bargaining to be accepted on the park because his company was more heavy industry than most of the site s white collar tenants. However, he stressed they had faced stiff competition for the premises and said there was considerable potential to house other companies like theirs on Beacon Park because of the lack of suitable modern sites elsewhere around Yarmouth.

    Mr Aulert said if they had not found a site in the town they would have been faced with moving their whole operation to Norwich. That would have presented a real problem, logistically, financially, and for our workforce, who mostly live in the Yarmouth area. Keeping our entire operation in one area is vital for continuity, communication and streamlined logistics, and the advantages of being in the enterprise zone are considerable, he said.

    One of the benefits of being located there is simplified planning, which suits Hydra Rig s plans for the future. He said: Further expansion is very likely for us, and the 2.5 acre Beacon Park site already has planning permission for an additional 16,000sq ft extension, so simplified planning will help to ensure that we can grow quickly without encountering too much red tape that could be the difference between winning or losing major contracts. Another advantage of our situation here is reduced business rates.

    We will be saving in the region of 190,000 over the next five years because of this, which is substantial, especially in a recession when every penny counts. Trevor Wainwright, leader of Yarmouth Borough Council, said: This is incredibly good news for Hydra Rig, their employees and for the borough. This decision shows that Yarmouth has a lot to offer energy companies looking to expand or relocate.

    By staying in Yarmouth and choosing to move to Beacon Park, Hydra Rig is able to keep all its staff and operation in the town.

  • 3sun Group Scoops Two Prestigious Awards 3sun Group, specialist provider of products and services to the global energy industry, has won the Best Skills Initiative Award and the Scottish Power Renewables Offshore Wind Award at this year s EEEGR Awards . The awards celebrate the best of the East of England s energy industry, honouring the achievements and developments of companies over the past 12 months. Winners were announced at an awards ceremony on 16 July at Norwich City Football Club.

    Commenting on the Group s success, Graham Hacon, CEO, said: We are extremely proud to have won two categories at this year s EEEGR Awards and especially delighted to have been recognised for our commitment to young people within the industry. A double award win is a fantastic achievement and testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire team. The Best Skills Initiative Award recognises a scheme that demonstrates a skills initiative to aid and enhance the development of individuals within an organisation in the energy sector, and was awarded to 3sun Group in recognition of its Pre-Apprenticeship programme.

    Andy Holyland, training and resource manager for 3sun Group, said: Nurturing the next generation of industry talent is of significant importance to the company and key to overcoming the current skills gap.

Our Pre-Apprenticeship Scheme, in partnership with Great Yarmouth College, addresses the balance between practical, theoretical and work-based learning, enabling young people to make informed decisions on their future careers whilst also helping to remedy the current skills shortage in the industry.

    The Scottish Power Renewables Offshore Wind Award recognises the company that has made the most significant contribution to offshore wind in the East Anglian Region, and awards the winner 1000 to donate to a local charity of choice. Since its inception in 2007, 3sun Group has grown rapidly to now employ over 300 people across seven divisions, and has earned a global reputation for resolving some of the key energy engineering challenges facing the energy sector.

  • 6.12.15 | Tim's Dream Diary The Dream Great Yarmouth is not a place you go without a reason. It s not a bad place but if you are a local you ll probably tend to go elsewhere. I go there twice a year to buy specific items for my shop which I can t get anywhere else apparently.

    On this occasion I m finding it hard to leave as I get caught up in a kidnap plot. It s not specifically me who is being kidnapped but I m in the wrong place at the wrong time and I m finding it hard to leave as the police have been called and a hostage situation has occurred, roads have been closed and no one is going anywhere. Oh great!

    I never really wanted to be here in the first place!!

  • A WEEKEND OF VARIED EMOTIONS A WEEKEND OF VARIED EMOTIONS Last weekend was a mixture of frustration (to put it mildly in one case), disappointment, encouragement and excitement for our teams as summarised below. Ladies 1sts . The team laboured to a deserved 4-1 win at a cold Weybread over bottom-placed Ipswich.

    Emma Lee-Smith put them ahead in the first half only for a lively Ipswich to equalise after the break. The game was then transformed when seemingly out of the blue Abby Gooderham fired home one of the goals of the season with a superb reverse stick shot from the edge of the circle. Susan Wessels then converted a penalty corner before Abby set up Susan for a simple tap-in after another piece of individual skill.

    With time running out Abby seemed destined for a deserved second goal only for the umpire to blow for the end of the game with the ball about to roll into the unguarded goal! The team remains in fourth place and this coming Saturday is away to Maidenhead (1.30). Ladies 2nds.

    There was further frustration for the team when they conceded two early goals away to St Albans 2nds following decisions which on another day might have gone in their favour. But they went on to battle hard combined with some excellent hockey and they got a deserved late goal when Kara Kilbourn deflected home at a penalty corner. With this 2-1 defeat the team need to win at least two of their last three games (starting at home this Saturday against Maidstone (2.00) to have any chance of avoiding relegation.

    Ladies 3rds . After their 6-0 away win over Pelicans 2nds (with goals by Sarah Legg 2, Millie Preece 2, Katie Ogden and Mia King) and the draw for the 4ths the team now lead their league by three points from the 4ths who have a game in hand. Katie Woollatt was MOTM.

    This Saturday Lucy Field and her team are at home after four successive away games when they host third-placed UEA 2nds (3.30). Ladies 4ths . After five wins on the trot the team had to be content with a 1-1 home draw against a gritty Norwich City 2nds.

    Laura Tibbenham put them ahead in the first half after considerable City pressure and City hit back with a scrappy goal after the break for a deserved equaliser. Despite these two dropped points Treacle Griffin and her team can still win the league but they have a tricky away game with fourth placed Norwich Dragons 3rds (11.30) this Saturday who drew last weekend after coming up against the resolute defence of lowly Evergreens. END OF SEASON SENIOR AWARDS EVENING including Buffet & Disco SATURDAY 19 MARCH, APOLLO CLUB, HARLESTON Arrive 7.30pm Awards 8.00pm Taxis 12.00am.

    Dress: Smart Tickets (which must be purchased in advance) are 20.00 and are available from clubhouse bar or from Jackie and Kevin Ridley 01379 854697 or 07815 199803. Please come to help make this evening both enjoyable and successful. Ladies 5ths .

    Two weeks ago in a re-arranged away game the team went down 6-3 to Watton 2nds but they were determined there would be no repeat at home and they ran out comfortable 4-0 winners. Imi Meynell-Anderson and Alice Evans-Hendrick put them 2-0 up at half time and skipper Jose Tibbenham made the game save with a couple later in the game. Fourth place is still attainable by the team but they will need to keep winning including at home to UEA 3rds on Saturday (10.15).

    Ladies 6ths . It was good to see the team earn a deserved point at home in a 2-2 draw with Evergreens 2nds. Ellie Fawkner gave them a first half lead and after Evergreens fought back to take the lead Ellie popped up with the equaliser with five minutes to go in an end to end match.

    This Saturday they are away to Norwich Dragons 6ths (3.15). Ladies 7ths . With a scheduled 5.30 start away to Norwich City 7ths the team knew they were in for a late finish.

    In the event with a delayed start they eventually came off the pitch at 7.20! After starting with ten players they lost Jane Collins through injury. Nevertheless they put up in a strong performance eventually losing 3-0.

    This week they are at home to Pelicans 3rds (12.15). Girls Development . Manager Sandra Elliner was obliged to select a very young side to play Pelicans with several players unavailable as they were playing the next day and with four playing for the 6ths.

    After a good game Pelicans came out on top winning 2-0. This Saturday the team is away to Yarmouth (10.00) whom they beat 5-0 in the middle of December. Men s 1sts.

    They just had to win their home match on Sunday with Teddington to keep alive their very slim national league survival hopes but it wasn t to be sadly as they went down 5-3. Myles King (with his first national league goal) and Ben Wright (with a penalty stroke conversion) had given the team the boost of a two-goal lead. Teddington hit back just before the interval and the game was transformed early in the second half with Teddington scoring three times in four minutes.

    Myles then scored again to give Magpies some hope but seeking an equaliser Magpies were caught on the break and the visitors, for whom it was good see out-on-loan Carl Sitch playing against his brother Leigh, scored again to win 5-3. This Sunday the team play their last home game of the season when they host Cambridge City at the changed time of 12 noon. Men s 2nds .

    Skipper Lawrence Baynes and his team were looking to build on their fine away win over Spalding when they took on fellow-strugglers Cambridge Univ 2nds at Weybread. It was soon clear they were in for a tough game and it was good to see Sam Moore and Richard Ling playing for Magpies for whom Thomas Ridley was in sparkling form. After a keen struggle the game seemed to be heading for a goalless draw but the students struck with five minutes to go.

    This spurred Magpies on even further and Thomas gave them a deserved equaliser. While now off the bottom of the league Magpies will need to win at least two of their last four games to avoid relegation starting hopefully away to Felixstowe on Saturday (2.00). Men s 3rds .

    The team knew they were in for a tough game against league leaders IES 2nds despite beating them at home 5-1 earlier in the season. They conceded two sloppy goals early in the game and after getting to half time without further damage they let in another soon after.

    3-0 down soon came 4-0 but third-placed Magpies hit back with late goals by Jake Sewell and skipper Matt Brand to lose 4-2. With three games left promotion is still a possibility for Magpies but they will need to beat Norwich City 4ths at home on Saturday (1.45) to have a realistic chance.

    END OF SEASON SENIOR AWARDS EVENING including Buffet & Disco please see above Men s 4ths . After their fine win over IES 3rds the previous week the team took a big step to avoiding relegation when they beat IES 4ths 1-0 away to move up to 5th place in their league. Their goal came in the last minute through Ali Williamson with his first for the club in thirteen years after he beat three players in the circle.

    What a goal! But they are still not completely safe although a win on Saturday at home to North Norfolk 2nds (12.00) would do the trick. Men s 5ths .

    They were up against league leaders Bury St Edmunds 4ths in the last game at Weybread by which time I have to confess I had sought the warmth of the clubhouse and with it an excellent meal thanks to the Ladies 1sts. Andy Caston twice brought his team level before Bury pulled away to lead 5-2. Lewis Belsey then scored to make the final score a respectable 5-3.

    On Saturday they are away to Thetford Town (2.30) who like them are in mid-table comfort. Men s 6ths . Eric Davy s team continues to amaze!

    Their 2-1 home win over Norwich Dragons 5ths was their seventh in their last eight games with the other ending in a draw. They were a goal down at half time before Eric got the equaliser (although this was incorrectly challenged in the clubhouse by jealous team-mates!) after Jon Wells had created the penalty corner. With seven minutes to go and with an appreciative roar from the spectators Richard Chopper Allcock fired home the winner after a shot from Roger Kent had come back off a post.

    The prospect of promotion for the team remains a concern (!) but they have three demanding games remaining including away to Norfolk Nomads on Saturday (2.30). Boys Development . While father Andy was scoring a brace for the 5ths sons Tom and Jake Caston were scoring the four goals by which the Dev team won 4-0 away to Pelicans.

    Tom went one better than his father scoring three times while Jake had to be content with one. The team, which does not have a game this week, is now back on the top of their league two points ahead of Norwich Dragons (having played a game more) who they play away on Saturday week. Mixed.

    The team is at home to Norwich City on Sunday (2.00) in the 3rd round of the EH Trophy. U18 Girls. The team had the frustration of their mini-bus breaking down on their long trip to play Neston South Wirral on Sunday in the quarter-finals of the EH Plate.

    They then had the further frustration of losing 1-0 through a late goal. But to their credit they honoured the fixture. U16 Girls.

    Frustration mixed with bewilderment (and something stronger) must have be the emotions of the team and their supporters when after beating Cambridge City 2-1 and drawing 1-1 with hosts Leicester in the regional finals their game against Worcester was called off with ten minutes to go when they were leading 8-0 (with Abby Gooderham scoring a remarkable seven goals). The reason being that it says in the rules no team may lose by more than eight goals. This meant our team lost out to Leicester on goal difference of two after Leicester had surprisingly beaten a strong looking Cambridge City 8-0.

    U16 Boys. They had drama of their own at the regional finals in Canterbury drawing 3-3 with Teddington after being three up with six minutes to play. They then came from two down to draw 2-2 with Old Loughtonians before losing 3-1 to Canterbury.

    U14 Girls. They missed out on reaching their regional final when they lost 3-2 away to Norwich City. They recovered from 3-0 down with goals by Grace Collison and Georgie Cantrell and were pressing for the equaliser at the final whistle.

    U14 Boys. The team is through to the Midlands regional final on goal difference after Norwich Dragons beat Bury St Edmunds 3-1 on Sunday. U10/U12 Boys and Girls.

    Congratulations to our four A teams who have qualified for the East Finals to be held at Weybread over the weekend of Saturday/Sunday 16/17 April after their exciting successes in the Norfolk Championships at Pelicans HC on Sunday. The U10 Girls finished as champions while the other teams came second. This coming Sunday they will be joined by our B teams, who had their own event at Weybread, when they all compete in the Norwich Dragons Minis.

    Finally, a remarkable record at Weybread last Saturday when on the sand-based pitch there was a member of the Davy family playing in all four games for Magpies, namely Louise (10.45 for the 5ths), Katie (12.15 for the Development), father Eric (1.45 for the 6ths) and Louise and Julie and mother Marie (3.15 for the 6ths). Best of luck to all our teams this weekend. Please see the website for the full list of fixtures.

Emergency services, including firefighters, the police and the East Anglian Air Ambulance, were called. A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service said four ambulance crews, three ambulance officers and a rapid response vehicle attended the scene, which was about 100 yards from the Acle roundabout on the Norwich-bound carriageway.

    The first ambulance was on the scene in under four minutes. Crews took three patients to the James Paget Hospital in Gorleston, all suffering from minor back and neck injuries. Another eight patients were assessed at the scene but were not taken to hospital.

    Matt Broad, locality director for Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, who attended the scene, said: Thankfully, there were not many people on the two coaches and no one was seriously injured. Ambulance staff did a great job in attending the scene quickly and assessed and treated all of the people on board the two vehicles. The Acle Straight was closed in both directions to allow for investigations and recovery, and reopened at around 1.40pm.

    Residents living nearby said the air ambulance did land, but took off shortly afterwards. Were you a passenger on the bus or coach? Call our reporter on 01493 847961.

  • Addison's Uncle @ Great Yarmouth Maritime ... Getting onboard the Swedish sailing ship the Gotheborg was a real thrill for me (my second gig on a boat in a matter of weeks) this tall ship was docked in Yarmouth for the town s weekend Maritime Festival and featured an evening performance from Addison s Uncle, fresh from the news of their recent publishing deal. Addison s Uncle (c) shashamane 2015 It wasn t without its difficulties though, the website was down so it was not possible to get our tickets the day before but we were reassured we could get them on the gate although we hadn t bargained for the over-officious security who led us a merry dance, one telling us to go to another gate then to come back later only to again be denied entry as the band had already started! (Earlier than we were previously told.) Thankfully a call to the event manager resolved this and we were finally allowed through the gate to buy our tickets and get onto the ship. Utterly bizarre the way the public were so discouraged from an event that should have been absolutely heaving.

    Never mind, the ship itself was beautiful and Addison s Uncle stomped and stamped their way through two lively sets, hopefully managed to keep at least a bit warm on a windy and unseasonably chilly early September night, they certainly looked cold though. During Wagon Wheel the rain responded to the wind and the rain and the rest of the band were wishing aloud for warmer and better things at the end! (c) shashamane 2015 (c) shashamane 2015 (c) shashamane 2015 (c) shashamane 2015 (c) shashamane 2015 (c) shashamane 2015 Within moments of the set ending we were ushered off the ship along with everyone else, before anyone had a chance to buy a CD. Luckily I already own one but felt sorry for those denied the opportunity and indeed the band unable to meet any of the audience or sell anything.

    Addison s Uncle were great but the event is one of the most unwelcoming I ve known. Just inexplicable and the organisers certainly missed a trick, the quay should have been full with the numerous traders doing brisk business. It was still hugely enjoyable just oddly shambolic on the organisation front and the barrier of jobsworth attitudes that nearly meant missing the gig.

    The following day was of course Sunday, which means Sunday Funday and a trip to the Plasterers for some blues with Mark Howes and Ian Elson performing as Cruisin for a Bluesin always a great atmosphere in the Plasterers and the music was of course perfect. (c) shashamane 2015 Shortly before they closed their second set I made my way with some friends to the Lord Rosebery for the recently opened Sunday evening music sessions curated by Slightly Offensive Steve who was charm and politeness personified actually ๐Ÿ™‚ Lisa Ambrose was just finishing her set when I arrived, I instantly remembered her and her impressive voice from The Room 1 , at the Ocean Rooms in Gorleston a couple of years back. The Woodland Creatures were announced to very warm applause and played a beautifully charming set to an ever-growing group of admirers and went down a storm here. My first time in this recently renovated pub, it s not as hipstery as some places after renovations (although some of the menu board phrases totally baffled me) it is warm, woody and welcoming inside.

    And huge. A welcome addition to the Sunday Funday gig circuit (some names coming up in the next few weeks include The Georgia Shackleton Trio, Noel from Dumbfoundus, Jose from The Vagaband, etc.) which closed with a handful of songs from Steve, a chat after the gig and before I knew it it was 11:30 a sure sign of a funday! The Woodland Creatures (c) shashamane 2015 Many thanks to Johnny Steinberg for the kind lift to Yarmouth, Crusin for a Bluesin , The Woodland Creatures, and Slightly Offensive Steve.

  • ADE 2015 Review - Skiddle.com We delved into the all encompassing Amsterdam Dance Event to find out just how crucial the week is for electronic music. Image: Maurice Zinken 1 In 1996 someone had the bright idea to try and regulate the close to a decade old modern European electronic music industry into some form of conference, a counterpart to the madness of Miami's overly opulent but hugely enjoyable WMC . The event was held over three days, with 300 delegates attending as 30 DJs performed; the Amsterdam Dance Event 2 was born.

    This year that lovely amalgamation of multiples of three celebrated its 20th edition having spawned into a huge clubbing conglomerate, a five day extravaganza which literally crams almost every person and every entire facet of the global industry into the Dutch cosmopolitan capital alongside 365,000 attendees - well over a thousand times bigger than when it started. The breadth of choice on offer is exhaustive, with nigh on every genre of dance music suitably well covered by Amsterdam's excellent location and prevalence across the industry. This is a nation which has given us DJs as diverse as Tiesto 3 , Steffi 4 and Noisia 5 , labels like Armada and Clone and festivals on the opposite end of the spectrum as Dekmantel and Dance Valley .

    That melting pot of diversity bleeds into everything about ADE. Gabba and hard dance are as easily located as the hot underground of house and techno, and whether you make a living from the rave or just want to immerse yourself in it, this is the place to be. From a business angle it simply can t be overstated just how much of the dance music industry makes its way to Holland for the week.

    It's equally great from a fan perspective, as you can waltz around and expect to bump into enough DJs to populate a small festival line up, finding your heroes in the most unlikely of situations. more info Date: Wednesday 14th October 2015 Event: Amsterdam Dance Event at Amsterdam Arena 6 Venue: Amsterdam Arena 7 Artists: Jamie Jones , Andy C , Hardwell , Maya Jane Coles , Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike , Loco Dice , Seth Troxler , James Zabiela , Pete Tong , Skream , Heidi , Art Department , Damian Lazarus , Nicky Romero , Laidback Luke , Adam Beyer , Carl Cox , John Digweed , Maceo Plex , Solomun 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 Hotels: Hotels near Amsterdam Arena 28 Restaurants: Restaurants near Amsterdam Arena 29 We saw both Richie Hawtin 30 and Seth Troxler 31 saunter down Keizersgracht, the street which holds the daytime's best main venues the Dylan Hotel and Felix Meritis centre. We turned off the same canal side avenue a day later to stumble into South African house hero Black Coffee 32 .

    Later on we spotted Maxi Jazz in Schilpol airport, having previously spied DJ Pierre 33 in the lobby of the Hoxton hotel. And we even caught Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike 34 , hours before being crowned the new world number ones in DJMag s opinion splitting poll, brushing their teeth in the toilets of the Dante restaurant, muttering with a smile about the travails of living the "airport life". All these destinations, alongside the heaving Doffer cafe, are places we also conducted business in during our stay in Amsterdam (we made it to a table at Dante mind).

    Wherever we walked we were constantly bumping into countless label owners, promoters, DJs and other journalists. And despite the fact there's some very serious business being conducted, plenty of them were on the lash, dance music s occasional factitious rivalries making way for plenty of good natured conversations stacked with positivity about the way things are heading. There's enough going on here for you to make you way to Amsterdam without a conference ticket, but that means you will miss out on a frightening amount of activity.

    During the daytime we caught Jeff Mills' 35 continuing ability to push the boundaries of what artists are supposed to represent with his ode to Rembrandt in the painter's reconstructed studio, a far cry from hearing his relentless techno in sweaty clubs. More straight up was the talk of another US pioneer, with DJ Pierre regaling details of how he pushed the acid sound during a talk at the Dylan. The same venue was the place we also caught a rather frank discussion on the ways streaming is having an impact on the industry, with much of it not positive.

    The ongoing issues with Soundcloud suspending accounts proves this is murky ground for the way we consume DJ sets and their ilk. The evening though was all about the rave. We re big fans of what happens to Barcelona during the Sonar week, where the Catalan capital is transformed into an unrelenting Mecca of electronic music.

    The key difference with ADE though is the choice; whereas Barca is very much focused on the underground and more specifically house and techno, ADE has it all. And it s literally everywhere. Fan of the more accessible strains of the sound?

    Well you could of caught Hardwell 36 blasting out chainsaw riffs and jackhammer beats at the city s Apple Store, as well as the ADE's landmark parties at Amsterdam Arena . The Gashouder venue, famed for the glorious Awakenings parties, had Drumcode, Carl Cox 37 and Joris Voorn 38 each bringing differing facets of techno to the fore. Whilst we were there we indulged in Black Coffee s crystalline grooves at slightly off the radar hotspot Radion , the grimy bare brick location perfect for his luscious soul infused house and techno.

    Loco Dice 39 playing to a packed out brothel and Mixmag's early evening histrionics at the gloriously intimate Studio 80 also had us sashaying to a superfluous concoction of sounds. It was the Diynamic party though that really encapsulated our ADE rave experience. Based in Loveland on the city's outskirts, it was a venue that bossed the best about big room raves, cavernous in size with a killer production which enabled the perfect backdrop for Solomun's 40 melody heavy label to boss things.

    The man himself was in imperious form, his own 'Zora' (below) a highlight during a set which had the crowd in raptures throughout. If the days were spent learning and discussing how great dance music is, this was the epitome of it at it's large scale appeal and proof that the DJ and his cartel know how to put on a show. Irrespective of what dance music means to you, making your way to Amsterdam in 2016 is pretty much a foolproof way of wringing more out an industry and scene millions love across the planet.

    We spent a week partying, absorbing and breaking bread in this utterly beguiling climate, and our love for the good old fashioned rave only got stronger. It is, unequivocally, an essential component of the dance music calender. We also sent Jack Law to ADE, read his Elrow at ADE review 41 .

  • Adrian Howard โ€“ Wigan | UK & Ireland database 19 Saturday Sep 2015 Posted by Author 1 in Greater Manchester 2 Comments Off on Adrian Howard Wigan September 2014 Vile rapist jailed for 21 years A WIGAN man has been sentenced to a 21 year jail term for raping a young girl and sexually abusing her. Adrian Howard, who was convicted of eight sex offences after a trial, was placed behind bars for 17 years with an extended licence of four years. His persistent abuse came to light after the victim s concerned mum checked her mobile phone and found sexually explicit messages from him.

    When she confronted her daughter about them she broke down and revealed what had been happening and her mum told the police. Howard was working in Belfast at the time as an asbestos remover but when he arrived at Liverpool s John Lennon Airport police were waiting to arrest him, said Charlotte Kenny, prosecuting. The Recorder of Liverpool, Judge Clement Goldstone, QC, told 50-year-old Howard that he poses a significant threat to young girls and that the long term psychological harm he has caused his victim is unknown.

    Howard, of no fixed address, formerly of Platt Bridge, was found guilty by a Liverpool Crown Court jury of one offence of raping the girl, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, when she was aged 11 or 12. He was also convicted of two attempted rape offences and five other sexual assaults spanning almost four years. Howard denied the allegations and claimed that the girl had sent him sexually explicit texts and he just replied in the same manner as a joke.

  • Afternoon update: Man in his 40s from London area dies in dive ... Great Yarmouth and Gorleston Lifeboat RNLB Samarbeta. Picture: James Bass By MARK BOGGIS 1 Saturday, August 31, 2013 12:28 PM Police and health and safety officials were today (Saturday) continuing their investigations after a diving trip off the Norfolk and Suffolk coast ended in tragedy. To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

    A man in his late 40s, from the London area, died yesterday after he became unwell during a recreational diving trip. A Suffolk police spokesman said: A man who died following a diving incident off the coast yesterday is thought to be 49-years-old and from Brixton in London. He was airlifted to the James Paget University Hospital (in Gorleston) following the incident about 17-miles offshore yesterday afternoon (Friday, August 30).

    A second diver brought ashore by Gorleston lifeboat was taken to the James Paget for assessment but was later discharged. The drama unfolded at about 1pm yesterday, after the dive boat had left Lowestoft yesterday morning for a recreational diving trip. Coastguards were alerted by the operator of the Raider V dive boat, after one of the divers became unwell and had to make an emergency ascent.

    It is understood that he may have suffered a heart attack, although the cause of death is still to be ascertained. After being given emergency CPR, a RAF search and rescue helicopter from Wattisham was called to airlift the man to the James Paget, but he was pronounced dead on arrival. A second diver suffered suspected decompression sickness and was taken to the James Paget by the Great Yarmouth and Gorleston lifeboat Samarbeta.

    The police spokesman added: Suffolk police officers attended Hamilton Docks in Lowestoft to meet the dive boat, that docked around 6.30pm, and inquiries continue this morning into what happened. This will include an examination of the diving equipment used, that is believed to have belonged to the man that died, and a post mortem examination to determine his cause of death. Officers have already spoken to the other six people on board the boat at the time and will be getting full accounts from them.

    As is standard procedure the death is currently being treated as unexplained pending the outcome of the post mortem and these preliminary inquiries, but at this stage there do not appear to be any suspicious circumstances A spokesman for Humber Coastguard said they were contacted yesterday by a dive vessel reporting that one of their divers had surfaced and was in difficulty. The incident occurred 17 miles offshore and the decision was made to send the RAF search and rescue helicopter from Wattisham as this was the quickest way to get the casualty to safety, the spokesman said. The Gorleston RNLI all-weather lifeboat was also requested to launch to assist with the transportation of the dive buddy, particularly in view of the distance offshore.

    A spokesman for the Great Yarmouth and Gorleston Lifeboat confirmed they were called out at 1.20pm to assist in the recovery of two diving personnel from a diving support vessel situated 20 miles north east of Gorleston Lifeboat shed. The spokesman said: On arrival at the scene, one of the divers, who was suspected of having a cardiac arrest, was airlifted by helicopter. The second diver, who was thought to be suffering from decompression sickness, was taken back to shore by the Gorleston lifeboat and then transferred to the James Paget hospital.

    Jan wrote from China: In this rapidly aging world, all of us around the globe share concerns about how we are going to assure the economic security and health care that are essential for positive aging. China s assets, including a vibrant economy and sense of caring for elders, are visible and outstanding, but the prospect of adding hundreds of millions of elderly residents demands careful planning and ongoing follow through to assure social security, long-term care, and quality of life throughout life. Their planning takes into account the role of families and communities as well as the role of the government.

    Our China hosts share our interest in fostering active, positive aging that benefits both older adults and the larger society. Academic leaders from the University of Engineering Science along with government leaders invited Kathleen Bailey and Jan Hively to speak about Age Friendly Work and Advocacy Leadership for Active, Positive Aging at a workshop on Social Security Research Jan is one of five community leaders from Yarmouth, Massachusetts who were invited to speak in China about Yarmouth s ongoing process of becoming an Age Friendly Community in the World Health Organization s network of Age Friendly Cities and Communities. The delegation was led by Kathleen Bailey, Yarmouth s Director of Aging Services, who initiated the town s cradle to grave approach to assuring an age-friendly community for all ages.

    In 2014, the Town of Yarmouth hosted a delegation from China that was led by Professor Mi Hong, director of the Institute for Population and Development Studies at Zhejiang University in Hangzhou, and included Dr. Zhao DianGuo, China s leader in Social Security planning.

We enjoyed the sights, sounds, and great food of three major cities near the mouth of the Yangtze River Shanghai, Hangzhou, and Souzhou all loaded with thousands of years of history, great shopping, and welcoming people.

    I am filled with gratitude for this first trip to China that I ve dreamed of for much of my life.

  • Age UK Norwich Art Exhibition at largest Norfolk Hospital Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals will be featuring a new art exhibition from Age UK Norwich which aims to capture older people s history in words, pictures and sounds. The exhibition will be on show along the hospital street Level 1, and will feature important moments to promote a better sense of understanding and care. The exhibition showcases five Life Stories created by students from the Jane Austen College who have worked closely with local older people to produce Life Story Scrapbooks.

    BBC Voices trained the pupils in recording skills and alongside the photography and scrapbook display, the public will be able to hear the older people s memories come to life. Emma Jarvis, Hospital Arts Co-ordinator, said: People visit hospitals for a variety of reasons so we provide a wide variety of art for patients, visitors and staff. We are really pleased to be showcasing the work by Age UK Norwich especially as Age UK is of service to both the visitors and patients of our older people s medicines wards and the art is a way of displaying both services available and information.

    Age UK Norwich Chief Executive Susan Ringwood said: The life stories work we do is an important project helping to prevent older people from becoming invisible. If the time comes when their abilities do become impaired, there is a record of who this person once was, what they have done, where they have been. This intergenerational project lasted three months and is just one example of the work Age UK Norwich carries out in the city to help tackle loneliness and social isolation.

    The exhibition is open until the end of April 2016.

    Notes: The Hospital Arts Project at NNUH works on diverse projects with the community, interior design, site specific arts, performances, workshops, exhibitions, events and gardens Is hospital arts charitably funded as a whole? Many of its projects project are funded by grants from organisations and charitable donations.

  • Agencies assess damage so far 6 December 2013 With the tides in some parts of Norfolk yesterday reaching higher than in 1953, agencies are continuing to assess the impact the flood waters have had on homes, businesses and flood defences as they prepare for the risk of further flooding today. The Environment Agency have confirmed that flood warnings have been reduced from Severe Flood Warnings to Flood Warnings, however the advice remains that people who have been evacuated should continue to stay away from their homes until they are told it is safe to return. Deputy Chief Constable Charlie Hall, who is leading the multi-agency response said: "This has been a serious incident which could have been far worse had it not been for the support and cooperation of the public and all the agencies working to keep people safe. "In places, water levels were higher than those experienced in the flooding of 1953, when many people lost their lives.

    Thankfully that has not been the case on this occasion, a combination of improved defences in place and the concerted efforts of the community, the emergency services and the agencies that have worked to support the evacuation and keep people informed. "The widespread evacuation was based on the high risk of severe flooding and was essential in ensuring the public s safety. A night time rescue operation would have placed both the public and emergency services at far greater risk. We are hugely grateful to the public for following the advice given and taking the steps needed to keep them and their neighbours safe.

    With two high tides still to come we would remind those who have been evacuated not to return home until they are told it is safe to do so. Public Health Advice Advice offered by Public Health Norfolk to those already affected by the flooding includes: If you re caught in a flood, do not consume food that has been contaminated by flood waters. Do not let young children play in flood water and try to avoid coming into contact with flood water.

    If you do come in contact with flood water, wash hands using clean water and soap and be aware of young children putting their hands in their mouth. Washing hands is the best way to get rid of bugs. Keep in touch with elderly and vulnerable friends, family and neighbours in affected areas, ask about their welfare and offer assistance when possible.

    Further health information and advice is available online from Public Health England. Facts and figures During yesterday and overnight: Norfolk Fire and Rescue service attended 116 incidents including nine flood rescues. More than 600 people have made use of the various rest centres around the county.

    10,000 properties were visited with residents advised to evacuate. Highways have assisted with 21 fallen trees, 11 road closures and are currently assessing bridges in the west of the county. A number of public services have been disrupted by last night s high tides.

    23 schools and colleges are closed as a result of localised flooding or the risk of further flooding Caister Recycling Centre is closed For more information on service disruptions visit www.norfolk.gov.uk. Road closures Some localised road closures remain in place and Highways advise that some roads may not remain open. West Norfolk - Bridge closures at Wiggenhall St Germans (due to cracking) and Purfleet Place (closed in both directions at the Customs House) King s Lynn - King Street is closed at the Tuesday Marketplace.

    North Norfolk - Mill Common Road, Walcott Road, Keswick Road, Bacton Road, at the Lighthouse Inn, Walcott, Beach Road, at Cley, up towards Salthouse We continue to advise people to stay away from the coast and coastal paths as these may be dangerous and Cromer Pier also remains closed. Previous releases 6 December 2013 I 7.05 Although the first day response to Norfolk s flood emergency has generally gone well, agencies are warning that the danger is not yet over with a risk of further flooding today. Both fire and police are grateful for the mutual aid provided by colleagues from other parts of the country, many of whom will be back on duty shortly, as the flood risk enters its second day.

    Further high tides are expected at 8am in King s Lynn, 8.30am at Cromer, 8.41am at Wells and 10.44am at Great Yarmouth. Tonight s predicted high tides are: 8.44am at King s Lynn, 8.36am at Cromer, 8.52am at Wells and 10.31am in Great Yarmouth. Local authorities are stressing that this event is not over yet and there is a risk of further flooding, with particular concern in the Hunstanton area where some of the shingle bank has been swept away.

    Emergency services and other agencies remain on the ground as they look to assess any damage caused as a result of last night s high tides while preparing for subsequent high tides. Some localised road closures remain in place. In West Norfolk , bridge closures at Wiggenhall St Germans (due to cracking) and Purfleet Place (closed in both directions at the Customs House).

    In King s Lynn , King Street is closed at the Tuesday Marketplace. In North Norfolk , Mill Common Road, Walcott Road, Keswick Road, Bacton Road, at the Lighthouse Inn, Walcott, and Beach Road, at Cley, up towards Salthouse are all closed. The Poacher s Pocket Pub, on the Bacton Road, caravans which were in the car parked have floated into the road, blocking the road all the way to Walcott Road.

    Reports have also been received that Mundesley Cliff Vale Road car park has been washed into the sea. In Wells-next-Sea, the road from Northfield Avenue to East Quay is also blocked. At the time of this press release being issued, there were no road closures in Great Yarmouth, but keep visiting this website for details or follow us on Twitter.

    The message from all agencies in Norfolk is that there is potential for further flood damage during today, until tomorrow morning, and that people who have been evacuated should stay away from home for the time being. More than 600 people have made use of the various rest centres around the county, and 10,000 properties have been visited with residents advised to evacuate. People have generally responded well to following advice - but one issue of concern has been people out 'sightseeing' along the river banks in Riverside Road in Great Yarmouth, who have put themselves at risk by standing too close to the breaking waves.

    Several Hemsby beach chalets have collapsed while in South Yarmouth, flood water has breached several terraced houses, despite sandbags being in place, with water coming through front doors and floorboards. The true extent of the damage is not yet known. With further tidal surges expected, the advice remains that people who have been evacuated should continue to stay away from their homes until they are advised it is safe to return.

    The emergency services, together with district councils and other government agencies, appreciate the good common sense shown by Norfolk residents at this difficult time and would wish to reassure people that all agencies are continuing to work together to keep services running as far as practically possible. > > Flooding: Day one messages

  • Alan Dawson โ€“ Withington/Urmston | UK & Ireland database 25 Friday Sep 2015 Posted by Author 1 in Greater Manchester 2 Comments Off on Alan Dawson Withington/Urmston September 2015 Paedophile Sunday school teacher who blamed the devil after he was caught abusing young girl is jailed for 16 years A Sunday school teacher who blamed the DEVIL for his sex crimes has been jailed for 16 years. In the mid-1970s Alan Dawson escaped justice for molesting a young girl after telling her devout Christian parents fellow members of the Gospel Hall sect that Satan got hold of me . Dawson was forgiven for his crime and rose to become a respected elder of the Gospel Hall, also known as The Brethren , at its church at Mauldeth Road, Withington.

    He used the position to groom and abuse three more vulnerable girls as young as 12. One girl was molested on a church trip to the seaside aged around 14. Three years later, he raped her in his basement.

    Alan Dawson blamed Satan when he was caught When she reported her ordeal to church elders, Dawson told them they had had an affair. The revelations led to a bizarre meeting at the Dawsons home between church elders, the victim, and her attacker. Alan Dawson got on his knees, he was crying and he asked me for forgiveness, the woman said.

    I remember (an elder) looking at me and saying that God forgives and that if I don t forgive him, God would not forgive me. So that was the only reason why I said I forgive you . As a punishment Dawson was briefly made to sit in the back during Gospel Hall services, but justice didn t catch up with him until this year, after his four victims, now mature women, told police of their ordeals.

    Married Dawson, who ran gardening business Newcroft Nurseries in Urmston, was found guilty of seven sexual assaults and one charge of rape at Manchester Crown Court.

Alan Miller, 58, a married father-of-two, amassed a library of illegal still and moving images that he had downloaded. His offences were committed over an eight-year period, with some of the most serious and graphic images showing youngsters aged just seven.

    Miller, of Tindale Fell, Brampton, pleaded guilty to 13 separate counts of making indecent photographs of children at Carlisle Crown Court He was sentenced to 16 months in prison by Judge Paul Batty QC. Miller had previously worked for photography studios in both Carlisle and Gretna.

  • Alastair Campbell advises Ed Miliband to take election tips from ... As one of Europe's poorest nations, Albania tends to turn to richer countries such as Britain for advice. But the time has now arrived for one of Europe's most closed former communist countries to offer some political tips to Britain, according to Alastair Campbell 1 . The former No 10 director of communications says the Labour 2 leader, Ed Miliband 3 , should take a risk and follow the example of the Albanian prime minister, Edi Rama, who confronts critics head on by running video interviews featuring sceptical comments during speeches.

    Campbell, who is being lined up to play a significant role in Labour's general election campaign, says the video clips worked for Rama, who won parliamentary elections in June at the head of a centre-left coalition. Tony Blair's former aide acted as a senior media and strategy adviser to Rama, who recently hired Blair himself to advise Albania on its campaign to join the EU. In a Guardian interview, Campbell says Miliband could turn round perceptions about himself on contentious areas such as business by facing up to his critics in Rama's style. "It is quite a risk.

    But it certainly worked really well for Rama. Sometimes the best way to deal with negatives is to confront them head on." Campbell, who resigned from the Blair team 10 years ago after a bitter row with the BBC over the notorious Iraqi arms dossier, is once again a confidant to the leader of his beloved Labour tribe. Campbell, who lives around the corner from Miliband in north London, is in regular contact with the Labour leader and advised him in his recent battle with the Daily Mail.

    Miliband has such a high regard for Campbell that he offered to abandon plans to hold an all-women shortlist to select the next Labour parliamentary candidate for Campbell's home town of Burnley to make way for him. Campbell, whose twitter name CampbellClaret pays homage to Burnley FC, known as the Clarets, decided not to stand. "Ed and others had said: 'Look, Burnley is likely to be an all-women shortlist, are you going to go for it?' That is what made me decide. I basically thought I'll amble along and see what happens and maybe or maybe not.

    So that forced me to make a decision and that was the decision I made. . As for any future seat I wouldn't rule it out totally but I think it is unlikely." Campbell, whose partner, Fiona Millar, came close to putting her name forward to succeed Glenda Jackson as the Labour candidate for Hampstead and Kilburn at the next election, decided to resist the green benches because of the freedoms he has enjoyed in the past decade. He said: "A big part of me wants to do it and a big part of me doesn't.

    The part that does is the part that says you should do this in your own right and also it is the part that responds to people saying you should do it. The part that doesn't want to is the part that has a very different sort of life where I can be in politics but not totally in it. That is where I am." The freedom has allowed Campbell to publish one of the most comprehensive accounts of the Blair years through the four volumes of his diaries, which start with Blair's election as Labour leader in 1994 and end with Campbell's departure.

    Campbell is publishing another volume devoted entirely to Blair's role in Northern Ireland. Before publication of the Irish Diaries, Campbell speaks of the "absolute full-on intensity" of Northern Ireland, which absorbed much of Blair's time from the moment he took office in 1997. He contrasts this with David Cameron, whose approach prompted Martin McGuinness, Sinn F in's deputy first minister, to complain last year that he and the Democratic Unionist first minister, Peter Robinson, met Barack Obama more often than the prime minister.

    Campbell said: "The last time I was in Northern Ireland I definitely picked up a feeling that they worry there is an over-assumption about the extent to which it is all kind of working. I don't think you can take it for granted." But Campbell qualifies his criticism of Cameron, who has hosted the G8 summit in Co Fermanagh and recently attended an investment conference in Belfast. "I don't want to be over-critical because he handled the Saville inquiry into Bloody Sunday really well, I thought it was great that the G8 was in Northern Ireland, I thought it was good that he had that investment conference recently." In a foreword to his diaries, which was published in the Guardian yesterday, Blair attributed the eventual success of the peace process to his skills as an empathetic negotiator, to the leadership of all the main parties and to the underlying political framework. This was the "principle of consent" which said that Northern Ireland's constitutional future will be decided solely by its own people.

    Campbell suggests Miliband's pledge to freeze energy 4 bills for 20 months if he wins the election it could be a turning point for Labour. "Ed made the weather at the Tory party conference and that's why John Major's intervention was incredibly important. I have always said that the thing about strategy is it's about making political weather. New Labour made the weather for a long, long time and you can argue with Cameron it still is.

    It was my first Tory conference in 20 years and it was really interesting to me the extent to which the talk was about Labour. That was good." Miliband's success over the past five weeks has, Campbell believes, transformed Labour's chances at the next election. "If I was a betting man, even with the economy, before the conferences I thought the Tories were in better shape," he says. "I think that has swung around a bit and I think it is all now about policy and winning the intellectual argument...The energy thing shows what you can do." With such a tight election in prospect Campbell thinks it would be wise for Miliband to take a leaf out of the campaign tactics of the Socialist party of Albania, the former Party of Labour of Albania led by the late dictator Enver Hoxha. Its modernising leader Rama swept into power in June after Campbell advised him to air the views of his opponents as a way of tackling critics.

    Campbell says: "When we were doing the campaign in Albania we recorded video of people who were very critical of Edi Rama and then we played them into speeches and he responded to them. It was very, very effective, including in what would be the equivalent of the main party conference speech. Somebody would say: 'You don't have a policy on transport, you're just as corrupt as the other guy.' Then he would use it to build an argument around it." Miliband could have run videos of people criticising him for an apparent lack of policies before his conference speech, Campbell says.

    But the Labour leader has dealt with that criticism and so should focus on other areas. "I could imagine doing something where you had business voices saying: 'Labour doesn't understand business.' And so you hold an event and a speech which shows you do. We tried it once in Albania and it really worked." Campbell found himself on TV screens during the conference season when he denounced the Daily Mail for depicting Miliband's father, Ralph, as a man who "hated Britain". He believes that a "certain newspaper" and others in the industry are making a serious error in rejecting out of hand the cross-party royal charter designed to set up an arms-length process of overseeing a new self-regulatory body. "I honestly don't think there is a problem with what Leveson proposed.

    Forget my political hat, forget my well-known views of a certain newspaper, I really don't see the problem. "If you think of all the other walks of life that have taken a battering, whether it's bankers, MPs' expenses, the police everybody has been through the mill and there is an expectation that that has to lead to some sort of change, except it would seem when it concerns the press. I don't think the press have done themselves any favours: state regulation, politicians deciding what's going to be in the papers, we're going to become like Iran and Zimbabwe and China. It's nonsense." Campbell admits to having mixed feelings over the leaking of NSA 5 files to the Guardian by the US whistleblower Edward Snowden. "I am a little bit conflicted about it because the ex-journalist in me says if I'd been on the Daily Mirror ...

    I'd have thought: 'Wow, how do we get as much of this out as we possibly can?' The government person in me says this is a complete and total disaster." But Campbell says he read with interest the Guardian article by the former Sunday Times editor Harry Evans in which he said that the criticisms of the Guardian echoed the attacks on him for exposing the "full measure of Kim Philby's treacheries". Campbell says: "I read that piece. Great stories tend to happen where different people's interests collide and that's always going to be a difficult territory.

    But I think journalism is in a very strong position because I think the trends are all towards openness and transparency now."

  • Alicat Workboats Launches 'Solway Challenger' (UK) Alicat Workboats, a full service offshore wind farm workboat manufacturer and repair business, has successfully completed and launched the first of four offshore wind farm workboats for a major energy utility. The vessel, named Solway Challenger , entered the water for the first time late last week, following a naming ceremony that took place today at the dedicated seven-acre manufacturing and full-service workboat site that has direct access to the North Sea. The 19-metre workboat will now complete preliminary sea trials, with Alicat Workboats working closely with the energy utility throughout, before the vessel is deployed for long-term operations and maintenance work.

    The bespoke aluminum hulled catamaran offers a greater loading capacity across the fore deck, a completely redesigned saloon and island wheelhouse arrangement and was envisioned by Global Marine Design. Powered by two MAN V12 engines and with jet propulsion supplied via twin Rolls Royce water jets, the vessel will be capable of 30 knots. As the offshore wind energy market evolves, it s imperative that utilities, developers, operators and investors have access to the right equipment at the right time, in order to undertake scheduled operations and maintenance programmes at notoriously hard to reach sites, said Steve Thacker, General Manager Alicat Workboats.

    For energy utilities in particular, this is especially important, if they are to ensure the uninterrupted production, transmission and supply of electricity to the UK grid. Working closely with the utility over the past six months, we re confident that we ve delivered a high quality product that sets the standard for future operations and activity on the site. As part of this contract, over the course of the next nine months, we ll be manufacturing and delivering the final three workboats that together, help safeguard and protect the utilities wind energy operations in the future.

    In the first six months of 2013, Alicat Workboats has manufactured and built one class-certified vessel and a further three non class-certified vessels, for the European market at its Great Yarmouth facility. This follows a 1.6m investment in the East coast boat yard earlier in the year that has seen the introduction of a 24-hour operational hoist designed for the fast lift out and turnaround of repairs, paint touch ups and defouling. In 2012, Alicat Workboats acquired South Boats IOW, a class-leading workboat manufacturer, with a dedicated facility on the Isle of Wight.

    Combined, the two complimentary businesses provide wind farm charter firms, developers and investors with a multi-site manufacturing, service and repair hub as well as a wide array of vessel selection and choice.

    The four-workboat order underlines the long-term commitment of Alicat Workboats to the offshore wind energy market.

  • all about me: Norfolk headless bodyThe Norfolk headless body case relates to a woman, believed murdered, who died around the first or second week of August 1974. Her decapitated body was found near Swaffham, Norfolk, England, on 27 August 1974. Her head has never been found.

    The woman has never been identified; however, one theory that police are working on is that she was a prostitute known as "The Duchess" who worked the Great Yarmouth docks under that name and who disappeared in the summer of 1974. Origins: After the woman's remains were exhumed in 2008, samples of her toenails, hair and thigh bone were subjected to DNA and isotopic analysis. A full DNA profile was obtained but there was no match with any database, but the independent isotopic analyses carried out by professor Wolfram Meier-Augenstein and another scientist, which looks at the traces left in the body from the water consumed during a person's lifetime, both indicated that she was probably from the central Europe area including Denmark, Germany, Austria and Northern Italy.

    Family: From a second post-mortem examination of the woman, Norfolk police learned that her pelvic girdle had widened which happens during pregnancy to allow a woman to give birth, indicating that she probably had at least one child. Death: The badly decomposed body of the woman was found on 27 August 1974 by Andrew Head (19), a tractor driver, who was out walking when he found the body on land belonging to Sir Peter Roberts. Head later recalled: "I lifted one corner of the cover over the body and that was enough I could see what it was.

    I went home and phoned the police." The body was near a track leading to Brake Hill Farm, Brandon Road, near Swaffham, Norfolk. Combine harvesters were used to clear fields to allow them to be searched. Police believe the woman died in the first or second week of August 1974.

    She was estimated to be aged between 23 and 35 and 5ft to 5ft 2in tall. Her hands and legs were bound to her body and she was wearing only a pink 1969 Marks & Spencer nightdress. She had been decapitated.

    Her head has never been found. Her body was wrapped in a plastic sheet embossed with the words National Cash Registers. A collector in the United States identified the cover as being from a payroll machine and the exact model but the enquiry also established that thousands of the machines would have been made with many exported.

    With her body was a length of rope that was unusual in being made of four strands, rather than the more usual three or five strands. An expert told police that the composition of the rope "suggests it was made for use with agricultural machinery". Police traced the place of manufacture of the rope to Dundee in Scotland but the firms that made that type of rope have since ceased trading.

    The first murder enquiry into the death ran from 1974 to 1975 during which time police spoke to 15,000 people and took 700 statements. They completed 6,750 house to house questionnaires. In 2008, Norfolk Police exhumed the woman's body under Operation Monton and took a DNA sample but were unable to identify the woman.

    They established that she was right-handed, had probably given birth, had consumed water found in Scotland and that fish and crabs formed an important part of her diet. They have issued several appeals for information. In 2008, the case was featured on the BBC's Crimewatch programme.

    In 2011, police made another appeal and identified 540 missing women as a result of fresh enquiries. In 2016, the case featured on television again and twice in the online version of BBC News. "The Duchess": Following a call from a former police officer, after the case featured on Crimewatch in 2008, Norfolk police are examining a theory that the woman is "The Duchess", a prostitute who lived in Great Yarmouth docks and who disappeared in the summer of 1974 leaving all her possessions behind. "The Duchess" is believed to have arrived in the port town on the Esbjerg Ferry from Denmark. Her clients were lorry drivers who travelled between Esbjerg and Yarmouth using the ferry and she also sometimes accompanied drivers on deliveries in England.

    She was 23 35 years old and 5 feet 2 inches tall.

    In 1973 74 she lived for four or five months in the dockers' hut at the Ocean terminal.

    She also spent time in custody but the records relating to that time have been destroyed and the police do not know the woman's real name, nor can they be sure that the dead woman is indeed "The Duchess".
