Vysionics average speed scheme going live in Norfolk

The latest Vysionics ANPR average speed camera system is about to go live on the A17 between King s Lynn and Sutton Bridge. Seven cameras have been installed and are about to go operational on a stretch of road where there have been a series of fatal and serious collisions. The local newspaper, the Fenland Citizen reports that the latest fatality happened in December when a 21-year-old woman died in a collision which will now be in the middle of the new enforcement scheme.

Geoff Collins, Sales & Marketing Director at Vysionics says the company has put in a record number of schemes over the past year, of which this is the latest.

Prison snuggling drone use – up by 1550% – Converse Prison News

Drones are being used to smuggle drugs, mobile phones and other banned items into prisons, it can be revealed. Figures obtained through a Press Association Freedom of Information (FoI) request show that in 2013 none of the unmanned crafts were discovered in or around prisons in England and Wales. But in 2014 this rose to two incidents, rocketing to 33 in 2015 an increase of 1,550%.

Items discovered include just the drones themselves, drugs, mobile phones and chargers, and USB drives. Mike Rolfe, national chairman elect of the Prison Officers Association (POA), said: The use of drones to smuggle traditional drugs, NPS (legal highs) and mobiles phones into prisons is of serious concern to the POA. The POA have long pushed for increased staffing resource to tackle the security issue that drones present.

The additional resource should be used to increase operational staffing within establishments, allowing for the recovery of parcels delivered to prisoners by drones through cell checks and prisoner searches. This includes pressing NOMS (National Offender Management Service) for measures to tackle drones such as ground patrols and secure windows on cells. The use of illicit mobiles phones allows for increased criminal activity and distress to victims and their families.

The trafficking of illegal drugs and legal highs hampers rehabilitation breeding violence, bullying and gang culture. All of these issues are on the increase with the use of drones supporting this criminality. Prisons most affected by drone incidents between 2014 and 2015 were HMP Onley in Northamptonshire, topping the list with four, followed by Lindholme, Ranby and Swansea on three, and Bedford, Wandsworth and Manchester clocking two each.

Her Majesty s prisons recording one occurrence include Leicester, The Mount, Whatton, Leeds, Eastwood Park, Liverpool, Norwich, Glen Parva, Huntercombe, Wormwood Scrubs, Full Sutton, Guys Marsh, Long Lartin, Bullingdon, Wealstun and Oakwood. The Ministry of Justice said: Incidents involving drones are rare, but we remain constantly vigilant to all new threats to prison security. We have introduced new legislation to further strengthen our powers, making it illegal to land a drone in prison or to use a drone to drop in psychoactive substances.

Anyone found using drones in an attempt to get contraband into prisons can be punished with a sentence of up to two years. We take a zero tolerance approach to illicit material in prisons and work closely with the police and CPS to ensure those caught are prosecuted and face extra time behind bars. A report published in December by the HM Inspectorate of Prisons noted that illegal drugs, NPS and illicit medications may get into prisons in a number of ways meaning it is not always possible to quantify exactly how many drugs are making it into prisons.

With supply routes differing from prison to prison, drugs have been discovered being thrown over fences in tennis balls, in large packages fired by catapults and being dropped by drones. The report states that easy access to illicit mobile telephones makes it possible to plan the drops carefully . Figures revealed by the FoI show that across the incidents at English prisons, drugs were discovered on at least six occasions, mobile phones more than nine times and a drone itself recovered in 19 instances.

One of the biggest finds listed a drone, drugs, mobile phone, a charger and USB cards being discovered in December last year at HMP Oakwood. Below is a list of the number of times drones were discovered in and around English prisons over a three-year period, as well as a breakdown of the cargo the craft were carrying. The freedom of information request sent to the Ministry of Justice reveals there was no drone activity reported in 2013, only two instances in 2014 and more than 33 in 2015.

Items discovered in or around the prison range from mobile phones and chargers to drugs and USB flash drives other incidents have been recorded as either unknown packages or miscellaneous . In their response, the Ministry of Justice states that unknown packages refers to an item which has been recovered as part of a suspected drone incident with no specific information recorded on the contents. And where miscellaneous has been recorded, this refers to a reported drone sighting in or around a prison.

The MoJ states that where an incident has been listed as this or as drone only, they cannot know if the craft was being used for illegal purposes.

Here is a breakdown of drone incidents between 2013 and 2015, the location and items recovered. :: April 2014 Ranby HMP Mobile phones :: June 2014 Ranby HMP Drone, mobile phones :: February 2015 Onley HMP Unknown package :: March 2015 Onley HMP Unknown package Onley HMP Miscellaneous Bedford HMP Drone, unknown package :: April 2015 Ranby HMP Drone, drugs, mobile phones Leicester HMP Miscellaneous :: May 2015 Lindholme HMP Miscellaneous :: June 2015 The Mount HMP Drone, drugs Swansea HMP Drone, mobile phones :: July 2015 Whatton HMP Drone Leeds HMP Drone :: August 2015 Eastwood Park HMP Miscellaneous Liverpool HMP Drone Norwich HMP and YOI Drone :: September 2015 Onley HMP Drone and drugs Glen Parva HMPYOI and RC Miscellaneous Lindholme HMP Miscellaneous :: October 2015 Lindholme HMP Drone Wandsworth HMP Drone, unknown package Wandsworth HMP Miscellaneous Swansea HMP Miscellaneous Bedford HMP Drone, unknown package Huntercombe HMP Miscellaneous Manchester HMP Miscellaneous Wormwood Scrubs HMP Drone, drugs, mobile phones Full Sutton HMP Miscellaneous :: November 2015 Swansea HMP Miscellaneous Manchester HMP Drone, mobile phones Guys Marsh HMP Miscellaneous Long Lartin HMP Miscellaneous :: December 2015 Bullingdon HMP Drone, drugs, mobile phones Wealstun HMP Drone Oakwood Drone, drugs, mobile phone, charger, USB cards

Playbook – POLITICO

By Mike Allen (@mikeallen; [email protected] 1 ) and Daniel Lippman (@dlippman; [email protected] 2 ) SIREN — Apple resisting magistrate order to share iPhone information in San Bernardino killings: They have asked us to build a backdoor to the iPhone L.A. Times: Apple Inc. CEO Tim Cook said his company will resist a federal judge s order to access encrypted data hidden on a cellphone that belonged to the terrorist couple …

Story Continued Below In A Message to Our Customers posted early Wednesday, … Cook argued that such a move would undermine encryption by creating a backdoor that could be used in future cases. http://lat.ms/1PEOrrn Read the statement.

http://apple.co/1QkvIoB 3 4 Good Wednesday morning. BOTH CONVENTIONS could be crazy: We could be seeing a race where Bernie stacks up delegates and can push his agenda even if Hillary wins. BILL SCHER, senior writer at the Campaign for America s Future, and Politico Magazine contributing editor, Why Bernie Sanders Wins Even If He Loses: If you have delegates, you can make demands : There are no winner take all states in the Democratic primaries.

Every state allocates delegates on a proportional basis. So even if Clinton rights her ship and starts racking up clear primary wins … her victories could be as thin as his in terms of delegates.

The primary system is set up perfectly for a strong insurgent candidacy … The Democrats formula for distributing delegates is downright socialist. … The delegate fight now shifts to terrain more favorable to Clinton than Sanders. …

The stronger the Sanders minority, the more plausible it would be to force, and possibly win, floor votes on stricter Wall Street rules, rejecting corporate campaign cash and single-payer health care. http://politi.co/1SxzHhO 5 **SUBSCRIBE to Playbook : http://politi.co/1M75UbX 6 — Clinton makes pre-Super Tuesday cash dash, by Gabe Debenedetti in Atlanta: Clinton s top bundlers and donors are reconciling themselves to a jarring new reality: The money advantage that they had long taken for granted is unlikely to last and the campaign might even be outraised by Bernie Sanders over the rest of the primary season. … Between last Thursday s Democratic debate and February 27 s South Carolina primary, Hillary Clinton is scheduled for 13 events, Bill Clinton for 11, and Chelsea Clinton for nine alongside a host of other fundraisers hosted by surrogates and aides.

http://politi.co/1ooVJXU 7 SNEAK PEEK VOGUE profile of Hillary, The Race Is On, by Jonathan Van Meter in their March issue: When Clinton is the only woman in a room, she has a particular way of introducing herself: Hand jutting straight out, head up, she looks right into the eyes of men who are all taller than she. Her body language seems to be saying: I am, at the very least, your equal; I am also probably the most powerful person here. http://vogue.cm/kKGLJC5 8 TV TONIGHT — MSNBC hosts a one-hour town hall at 8 p.m.

with Donald Trump, moderated by Joe and Mika, while also at 8 p.m., CNN has night 1 of its GOP town hall in South Carolina with Cruz, Rubio and Carson, and Anderson Cooper moderating. http://politi.co/1R6vAWH 9 BITE DU JOUR — Meet potential Obama nominee Sri Srinivasan, who could be the first Asian-American on the Supreme Court, by Fusion s Casey Tolan : At Srinivasan s confirmation hearing in April 2013, Sen. Ted Cruz noted that we have been friends a long time.

http://fus.in/1Vlo1N0 10 — Scalia to lie in repose at Supreme Court AP: The … public will be invited to pay its respects Friday from 10:30 a.m. until 8 p.m. … His courtroom chair was draped in black to mark his death as part of a Supreme Court tradition that dates to the 19th century.

http://yhoo.it/1PQ1hRJ 11 PRESIDENT OBAMA at a presser in Rancho Mirage, Calif., on a Supreme Court nomination: I m amused when I hear people who claim to be strict interpreters of the Constitution suddenly reading into it a whole series of provisions that are not there. There is more than enough time … I understand the pressure that Republican senators are, undoubtedly, under. … The Court is now divided on many issues; this would be a deciding vote. …

I intend to do my job between now and January 20th of 2017. I expect them to do their job as well. –OBAMA on TRUMP: I think foreign observers are troubled by some of the rhetoric that’s been taking place in these Republican primaries and Republican debates. I don t think it s restricted, by the way, to Mr.

Trump. I find it interesting that everybody is focused on Trump, primarily just because he says in more interesting ways what the other candidates are saying, as well. So he may up the ante in anti-Muslim sentiment, but if you look at what the other Republican candidates have said, that s pretty troubling, too.

He may express strong, anti-immigration sentiment, but you ve heard that from the other candidates, as well. You ve got a candidate who sponsored a bill — that I supported — to finally solve the immigration problem, and he s running away from it as fast as he can. They re all denying climate change.

I think that s troubling to the international community, since the science is unequivocal. … But this is not just Mr. Trump. …

I continue to believe Mr. Trump will not be President. And the reason is because I have a lot of faith in the American people, and I think they recognize that being President is a serious job.

It s not hosting a talk show or a reality show. It s not promotion. It s not marketing.

It s hard. … As you get closer, reality has a way of intruding. And these are the folks who I have faith in, because they ultimately are going to say: Whoever is standing where I m standing right now has the nuclear codes with them, and can order 21-year-olds into a firefight, and have to make sure that the banking system doesn t collapse … And the American people are pretty sensible and I think they ll make a sensible choice in the end.

This is incorrect.

For example, in South Carolina the approximately 1,600 debate tickets were allocated as follows: 642 to campaigns; Approximately 300 to the RNC/elected officials/in-state grassroots activists (of these, only 10 to RNC donors); and The remainder to the South Carolina Republican Party and CBS News. … St. Anselm students have been accused of selling their tickets to donors and lobbyists.

This too is incorrect. Every ticket to RNC-sanctioned debates is matched on a name identification basis to its holder. Individuals who receive tickets are entered into an electronic database before they arrive, and are required to produce a government-issued photo ID matching the name in the database and on their ticket before being allowed entry into a debate.

As one poll after another affirms his lead, some South Carolina Republicans are worried about damage to the GOP brand (online: Meet the South Carolina Republicans who are horrified by the Trump coronation ): Maybe because Trump has been leading in the polls here for months, … and maybe because other Republican candidates say they will support him if he is the nominee, this doesn t seem so crazy anymore.

Over drinks, aides for other campaigns speak wistfully about a brokered convention once the pipe dream of journalists and Ron Paul supporters, but now a scenario many are counting on as their last-ditch safety net. … Hogan Gidley, a veteran GOP operative and South Carolina native who until recently worked on the Mike Huckabee campaign, believes that Trump could be a fine nominee, and that the so-called establishment is just freaking out because they have lost control of what s going on. http://wapo.st/1OfP3zC 17 JACOB HEILBRUNN on Politico, Trump Is Trampling Over the GOP s Corpse: Republican elites who want him to go away don t realize that he s already taken over an empty party : The irony of the new darling of the party s disenchanted base is that his open divergence from the putative ideology of that base is near-complete.

Trump preaches Trumpism; he doesn t seem to care at all what the official party doctrine is supposed to be. Trump is not only not a neocon; he s something close to a Robert Taft isolationist, a stance the party has rejected since World War II. He s not only not a Reaganite small-government guy; he openly says he won t touch entitlements like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

Graham Jones: Tories hand millions to wealthiest councils – but …

The 300m Local Government handout to Tory councils and Tory marginals is a stitch-up. The Chancellor has handed hundreds of millions of pounds to the wealthiest Tory councils to ease the pain of spending cuts but offered nothing to Hyndburn and what it has offered to Lancashire has been clawed back through back door education cuts. See previous also.

The extra funding for Lancashire of 1.108 m is offset by an Education Service Grant which is 1.177m less than expected. Hyndburn has suffered some of the very highest spending cuts since 2010 (4th), but has received nothing at all in today s announcement. Meanwhile, leafy Surrey one of England s wealthiest shires today gets a hand-out of 24m despite suffering far fewer cuts in recent years.

Lancashire Fire Service received no relief either whilst Lancashire Constabulary found out last week that despite a promise of a freeze in the police grant following the Paris attacks, they would intact received a reduced settlement. Tory MPs became alarmed when they realised their areas might soon see cuts similar to those imposed on the rest of the country. They threatened to vote down the Government s planned cuts until Communities Secretary Greg Clark announced a 300 million transitional grant .

The Government have refused to say where the extra money comes from. Labour analysis shows that 255 million of the grant 85% goes to Tory councils. Areas where Labour runs the council receive just 17 million, despite suffering the harshest cuts since 2010 and having higher levels of deprivation.

http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/feb/09/cameron-buying-off-tory-mps-theatening-to-rebel-over-council-cuts Steve Reed MP, Shadow Minister for Local Government, said: The Government is covering up where this money has come from and won t explain why almost all of it is being handed to Tory councils just weeks before council elections across the country. Councils that have already been cut to the bone since 2010 are getting nothing but more cuts. The Tories have picked millions of pounds from taxpayer s pockets to buy off their own MPs when faced with a rebellion in the House of Commons.

This is a blatant misuse of public money in a shameless attempt to buy votes and buy off Tory MPs.
