Current laws sufficient to cover social media offences says LORDS Select Committee


Legislation currently in existence, including the Communications Act 2003 and the Protection from Harassment Act 1997, along with the guidelines for applying them published by the Director of Public Prosecutions, are enough to ensure that criminal offences committed using social media can be adequately prosecuted, says the House of Lords Communications Committee in its new report, published today.

However, the Lords Select Committee is calling for more clarity from the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) as to when an indecent communication (e.g. “revenge porn”) could – and should – be subject to prosecution under existing powers.

It is also encouraging website operators such as Facebook and Twitter to speed up requests for identification of users from our law enforcement agencies, using powers already granted by Parliament.

The Committee is also calling for better statistics on the balance of offences committed online and by traditional means, as well as the number of offences that are actually reported.

Chairman of the Committee, Lord Best, said: “Thirty four million people in the UK use Facebook. And fifteen million in the UK use Twitter, contributing to the five hundred million Tweets that are sent a day. And although most of these range from the informative to the forgettable,  people need to remember that what is criminal off-line is also criminal online.

“Cyber bullying, revenge porn, trolling and virtual mobbing are new phrases in our media vocabulary, but they generally describe behaviour that is already criminal. Although anonymity has a valuable place when using social media – enabling human rights workers and journalists working in conflict areas to communicate with the outside world, for example – its negative effects when used as a shield for offenders to hide behind should be addressed.

“We need to be careful: we need to balance people’s right to freedom of expression with implementing the criminal law, whether the offences are committed online or off-line. It’s a complex subject, but we feel that legislation as it currently exists is generally fit for purpose and doing the job, even though it was drafted before the social media were first invented.

“We are not, though, saying that the legislation is perfect. The DPP’s guidance is very good but we would like clarification as to when a person who sends an indecent communication could and should be prosecuted.

“We encourage websites to speed up processing law enforcement requests for identities, to develop further their ability to monitor the use of their services and to build on the effectiveness of measures already in place to enable people using social media platforms to protect themselves.

“Just as importantly, as well as the legal measures available to us, we must ensure that parents and schools are taking on board the extent of the problem. They need to make sure that children are taught – at home and in school – that being horrid, offensive and rude to people online is just as wrong as it would be to do it face-to-face. Educating the next generation about how they should behave in the technological world is as important as teaching them the rights and wrongs of how to behave in person.”

RAIL UNION RMT today blasted First Great Western for “spinning a total pack of lies” over the future of catering


What happens elsewhere will soon happen on the East Coast Main Line! Say farewell to the FGW Travelling Chef Service according to the RMT Union!

RAIL UNION RMT today blasted First Great Western for “spinning a total pack of lies” over the future of catering services on its trains. The union anger has come from a blatant PR puff in a local newspaper in Wales that attempts to create the impression that axing buffet cars and replacing them with trolleys is somehow a return to the “golden age” of rail.

In fact, in their own press release on the subject, buried away in the small print, FGW’s real intentions are laid bare:

“Longer term, we are also considering the re-introduction of a retail trolley in Standard class coaches, and an-seat service at weekends in First Class.”
That means the abolition of the buffet cars.

RMT has already launched a major campaign to defend Travelling Chef services on First Great Western after the company announced it was to scrap the service, and the jobs it supports, in a move that the union maintains is just a forerunner to an all-out assault in the name of profit in advance of the introduction of the new Intercity fleet of trains.

The Travelling Chef is one of the last full in-train meal services available on trains in the UK. They provide a range of breakfasts and other meals, served at the seat in First Class and available at the Café for other passengers.

RMT has been told that the services will be scrapped by November 2014. The union has begun preparing a range of campaigning materials and is mobilising a public and political campaign aimed at saving the Travelling Chef service.

Under the Intercity Express Programme (IEP) signed off by the Government, the new fleet, built in Japan and reassembled in the North East by Hitachi, has the capacity to run on Driver Only Operation – removing the guards – would strip out buffet cars to cram in more seats and could lead to the current in-house fleet maintenance being hived-off to a third party.

Mick Cash, RMT acting general secretary said. “For First Great Western to try and spin the axing of the Travelling Chef service, and the replacement of the buffet cars with trolleys on the vast majority of their services, as some kind of return to the “Golden Age” of rail is an extraordinary act of misrepresentation of the facts.

“RMT is appalled at the attack by the highly-profitable First Great Western on the Travelling Chef service which is not only a kick in the teeth for staff but also shows complete and utter contempt for the quality of passenger services in the name of greed and profit

“RMT has made it crystal clear that we will fight to defend these services with every means at our disposal, that means an all-out publicity, political and industrial campaign that nobody will be able to ignore.

“The union wants the plans withdrawn and we also want assurances from both the company and the Government that catering services, guards and in-house maintenance arrangements will be protected when the new fleet of Intercity trains is introduced.”

A smartphone for £26? Goodness Gracious Me

A smartphone costing just about the same as family curry take away, is set to take on the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy at a fraction of the cost.

The Karbonn A50S  priced at just £26 (Pounds Twenty Six) has a touchscreen display, front and rear cameras, and a dual phone number function. It has so far only been released in India, but Britons can order the device online and have it delivered to the UK.  Because it is so cheap, there is no duty to pay.  It can be used on most UK networks with a pay-as-you-go Sim card.

The phone runs on Android, the Google-owned operating system, and features Google Maps and Gmail.

The device has a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor and 256MB RAM, plus 512MB internal storage.  In comparison, the iPhone 5S and Samsung Galaxy S5 both cost £549 in the UK.  However they do have significantly higher memory and storage capabilities.

Karbonn is not the only firm to try to enter the budget smartphone market.
In April French firm Wiko launched a £60 phone.

Jailed NHS Consultant Sadhanshu Garg, 46,

A killer doctor (Consultant Urologist) who was jailed for manslaughter after his negligence 'an isolated incident' led to the death of a mum-of-two can return to work, a tribunal has ruled.  

The PBROTRIB is running this item as jailed Consultant Urologist Mr Garg could now apply to work as a Consultant at Peterborough City Hospital, or indeed at any other NHS Trust.... 

Sadhanshu Garg, 46, (Doctor Registration Number: 4277886) failed to carry out proper checks on Lisa Quinn while treating the 37-year-old for a kidney infection at Bradford Royal Infirmary.

Mrs Quinn who was described as 'a remarkable woman with a heart of gold' knew how serious her condition was and had begged doctors to save her.

After she died Garg, who was a consultant urologist covered his tracks by falsifying records.

Garg was sentenced to two years in prison in May 2012 at Leeds Crown Court after admitting gross negligence manslaughter.

He was released after serving a year of his sentence and suspended from working for just 12 months last year after a hearing at the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service, in Manchester.

A fitness to practise panel, reviewing his case, has now ruled the doctor can return to work – under a string of conditions for 18 months.

Prof Jack Crane, chairman, told Garg: ‘The panel is acutely aware of the seriousness of the incident which led to your conviction.

‘It accepts that this was a single isolated incident, prior to which you had an excellent record and were regarded as a good doctor.

‘Furthermore, the panel acknowledges that you have made significant progress in your remediation thus far.

‘It has noted your intention to continue to work in a clinical capacity under supervision in India until such time as you have brought your medical skills and knowledge up to the requisite standard.

‘The panel is satisfied that it is sufficient and proportionate, weighing the public interest with your interests, to impose conditions on your registration.’

The tribunal heard that Garg intends to work in India until he feels he has improved enough to come back to the UK.

He will have to tell the General Medical Council when he returns when the period of 18 months’ restricted practise will take effect.

As well as keeping him closely monitored by the GMC, the conditions state he can only work within the NHS and he must be closely monitored by a named consultant.

The medic will face another review hearing before he is allowed back to unrestricted work.

Mrs Quinn was admitted to A&E on August 22, 2008 - the Friday of a Bank Holiday weekend - with abdominal pain.

She was correctly diagnosed with a kidney infection with a possible renal stone and the A&E doctor requested x-rays.

The patient was then admitted to the urology department but the x-rays were not looked at for the rest of the Bank Holiday weekend.

Garg did not see the patient until Saturday afternoon and did not recognise the serious nature of the Mrs Quinn's condition.

The doctor could have ordered her transfer to Leeds for urgent treatment but chose not to despite a the life threatening infection..

One nurse remembered Mrs Quinn begging for drugs because she knew she was going to die.

She was terrified and pleaded: 'Please help me feel better.'

When blood tests on Monday revealed the urgent nature of the illness it was already 'too late' and Mrs Quinn later suffered a heart attack.

She was pronounced dead later the same day.

Last year’s MPTS panel noted that Mrs Quinn's death was partly down to wider failings within the Bradford Royal Infirmary.

Over the August bank holiday in 2008 Garg had been on call for eight or nine days and nights.

He was in a state of 'acute distress and confusion' when he tampered with the records following the patient's death.

Systemic issues within the hospital along with mistakes by other doctors made the situation worse, the hearing was told.

An expert report by Michael Bishop, commissioned on the doctor's behalf, identified a number of errors by Garg's colleagues along with poor communication between departments.

It also highlighted 'unsatisfactory' policies and protocols which have since been addressed by the trust.

'The panel has taken account of the information advanced on your behalf in mitigation, including evidence of your insight, the fact that the failings before the panel are confined to a single case, the context of this episode as mentioned in its determination on impairment, and your willingness and ability to learn from these events,' said Dr Anthony Morgan, chairing last year’s panel.

'At the same time, in exercising its judgement on this matter, the panel has borne in mind that its role is neither to punish you for a second time for the criminal act for which you were convicted and imprisoned, nor to respond to any public demand for blame,' he added.

'The panel has taken account of the fact that the circumstances in which Patient A [Mrs Quinn] died, whilst tragic, were not wholly within your control or of your making.

'As it set out in its previous determination, the panel has considered your indisputable personal culpability in that context.’

Garg has not practiced medicine in the UK since he committed the offence six years ago.

He went on paid sick leave shortly after Mrs Quinn's death and was sacked from his post in 2009.

He had been employed as a consultant urologist at Bradford Royal Infirmary since March 2006 after training in the UK, following qualifying in Delhi, India, in 1992.

Speaking after her death the victim's sister Charlotte Godfrey said: 'My sister had a hard life bringing up two children on her own but she never lost her spirit.She was a remarkable woman with a heart of gold.'

Passport Office staff are taking industrial action in a continuing dispute over staff shortages which is claimed led to a backlog in processing applications.  Extra staff were drafted in to deal with the backlog of 30,000 applications earlier this year.

Julian Bray Travel Expert writes: Failure to produce a passport or a passport with more than 6 months validity could ruin overseas holiday plans AND invalidate travel insurance. Holiday companies will not be making any refunds either! Before you book a family holiday, check that all passports are valid or seriously consider a stay at home holiday this year.

Also to confuse matters those heading for America need to apply for an electronic visa and this requires valid passports at the start of the process. In  addition anyone, even with a minor criminal conviction, at any time, needs to declare this in full even though the conviction may be spent in the UK. 

Members of the Public and Commercial (PSC) union said the strike is an attempt to draw attention to staff shortages dating back to 2010 as well as inequalities in pay.

The Passport Office said it had faced the highest demand for applications in the last 12 years, adding that predictions for the summer surge were "substantially exceeded".
HM Passport Office chief executive Paul Pugh said earlier this month the 775,000 applications received in June was the “highest ever recorded in a single month".

PCS general secretary Mark Serwotka said: "The staffing crisis in the Passport Office has been obvious for everyone to see and it shouldn't have taken a committee of MPs to force the chief executive to meet us to discuss it.

"We are still a long way off getting a commitment from the agency that it will work with us to put the proper resources in place to ensure these backlogs do not reoccur year after year."

The Home Office said the strike could affect people’s summer holidays.

"We are disappointed the PCS leadership has called this strike given that HMPO has been in discussions with the union on their issues of concern," said a spokeswoman.
"Holding a strike at this stage is irresponsible and will only inconvenience our customers and jeopardise their holidays.

To confuse the issue, customer service counters will remain open today.

Adopted for £1 - The Surrey Effect

A Publican in Surrey has managed to save his community's historic phone box from being lost forever and the PBROTRIB wondered what protection is being given to the few traditional phone boxes left in our neighbourhoods? We are also aware of a rare Queen Victoria Royal Mail Piller Box in Peterborough needing some urgent repainting. But first this is what happened in Surrey:  

Nick Rogers didn't notice anything awry at first, when a van pulled up outside the Surrey Oaks pub in Parkgate Road, Newdigate, on Monday morning.

It was only when he looked closer and noticed that the van had a crane and an old phone box sitting in the back that he realised the vehicle had come to remove the traditional red box that has sat outside his 16th century pub for decades. Nick told the Advertiser: "I went outside and walked over to the guys and said, 'Surely you're not going to take it away?' They said it was on their list to be removed.

"The phone box is one of the older ones with the crown on it, which has been a part of our countryside and part of the pub's, and the area's, appearance for a lot of years.

"They gave me a number I could ring and I spoke to BT and they said it had to be removed. They said there was a notice inside the box saying they were going to remove it and no-one had objected."

Seemingly unable to stop the removal, Mr Rogers quickly phoned Newdigate Parish Council and alerted them to what was happening.

They immediately contacted BT while Mr Rogers, unable to think of another way to prevent the removal of the beleaguered box, moved his car into the road to block the van.

He said: "They moved the lorry and I thought if I can't get BT to agree then they can't move it if I'm in the way. So I put my car in the way."

Finally the parish council, with Mr Rogers's car still blocking the van, managed to get through to BT and started proceedings to "adopt" the box for the community by buying it for £1.

Mr Rogers said: "I'm pleased to have saved it for the local people, they're part of our social history and part of the scene of our lovely 16th century pub, along with the old postbox.

"If we hadn't have done what we did we'd have lost it forever."

He added: "I've agreed to maintain it in the future. I think we'd like to use it for something in the future, maybe as an exhibit or something for the residents of the village. Or we might put our menus in there."

A BT spokesman said: "We are always happy to support and encourage use of the 'Adopt a Kiosk' programme. We've asked the local residents and parish council to sign the relevant forms and send them back to us for us to deal with their request."

More than 2,000 kiosks have so far been adopted under the scheme across the country, with some turned into galleries, public libraries and information centres.

Some have even been turned into coffee kiosks.

Now this could never happen in Peterborough?
 Or could it?  Let the PBROTRIB know!

People living in the postcode areas of Southampton, Peterborough and Newcastle upon Tyne have the highest levels of personal loan debt per person in Britain, according to figures from lenders.

People living in the postcode areas of Southampton, Peterborough and Newcastle upon Tyne have the highest levels of personal loan debt per person in Britain, according to new figures from lenders.

Data which covers just under two-thirds of the country's personal loan market and around three-quarters of mortgage lending hasa been released by the British Bankers' Association (BBA) and the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML).

The figures, which cover around 9,000 postcode sectors, show that the total outstanding mortgage debt in South West London alone is at similar levels to that for the whole of Wales.

At the end of 2013, people living in the Southampton postcode area of SO32 3, which covers places such as Bishop's Waltham, Corhampton, Droxford, Durley, Wickham and Eastleigh, have £1,880 worth of personal loan debt per head, which is the highest level in Britain according to the data.

The Peterborough postcode of PE7 0, which covers the areas of Coates, Hampton, Folksworth, Yaxley and Whittlesey has the second highest level of debt per person, at £1,869.
In third place is the postcode of NE13 9 in Newcastle, which includes Wideopen and Dinnington, where the personal debt level stands at £1,550 per head of the population there.

The report cautioned that the borrowing levels shown are not an indication of the "financial health" of borrowers. For example, areas of Britain which are mainly industrial are unlikely to see high levels of personal loans. Nor do the figures indicate current demand for loans as they are made up of borrowing agreements which have been made in the past as well as debt which has been taken out
more recently.

The figures also show that of Britain's £902 billion-worth of outstanding mortgage debt that was held at the end of last year, almost £232 billion of it was held in London.

When put together, the outstanding mortgage debt for London and the South East, which have been driving the housing market recovery, is around £395 billion, an amount which is getting on for almost half of Britain's total mortgage debt.

In Wales, the total amount of mortgage debt was £28.6 billion - which comes to just under the combined value of outstanding mortgages in postcode areas of South West London - at £29.7 billion.
In Scotland, the total outstanding mortgage debt was £64.3 billion.

The mortgage and personal loan data has been provided by Barclays, HSBC, Lloyds Banking Group, Nationwide Building Society, Santander, RBS, and Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks.

The report also cover three-fifths of bank lending to small and medium-sized businesses. The business lending data has been provided by Barclays, Lloyds, HSBC, RBS, Santander and Clydesdale and
Yorkshire Banks.

The BBA combined the business lending figures with data provided by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. It said this shows that regions outside London and the South East receive a higher proportion of SME lending than their share of SME turnover.

For example, London's share of Britain's SME lending was 21% in December 2013 but its estimated share of turnover was 29%. Scotland's share of SME lending was 8% but its turnover was around 6%, and Wales's lending share was 5% but its turnover was around 3%.

BBA chief economist Richard Woolhouse said: "It's vital for economic growth and investment that there is a good balance of lending everywhere. These figures show that this is happening.

"However, these numbers are complex and it remains very difficult to draw firm conclusions."

Here are the postcode sectors with the highest amount of personal loan debt per person:

1. Southampton, SO32 3, £1,880
2. Peterborough, PE7 0, £1,869
3. Newcastle upon Tyne, NE13 9, £1,550
4. East Central London, EC1V 2, £1,440
5. Preston, PR7 7, £1,386
6. Leeds, LS17 0, £1,375
7. Milton Keynes, MK42 6, £1,331
8. Galashiels, TD12 4, £1,296
9. Western Central London, WC1X 8, £1,291
10. Manchester, M3 3, £1,259

PBROTRIB SKETCH You have to hand it to our hard working Home Secretary the Rt Hon Teresa May MP, who seemingly took valuable time out from State affairs to visit a back garden in Peterborough on the hottest day of the year (32 degrees) to judge an unironed checked shirt competition.

The patterns, we are unreliably told were some of the rejects out of John Barrowmans wardrobe for the Opening Ceremony of the Glasgow Commonwealth Games... 

Clearly the Park Ward 'lothario' Councillor John Peach won it hands down,  Local DJ Steve Allen (right) took no chances wisely protecting his eyes with dark glasses.  

Late contender Cllr. Nick Arculus, (right) not to be outdone
on the checked shirt front poses with some other £15 ticket holders.
You too could have been there for the price of a ticket (£15 "CASH no cards Squire!") and coded directions to the secret garden.  When enough money is raised, the partially completed wall in the background will get painted white.

What is left over will top up Conservative Party war chest for the next General Election tussle, in less than a years time.

HMIC asks public for views on new assessments of police forces in England and Wales

Consultation on HMIC’s programme for regular force inspections

HM Inspectorate of Constabulary (HMIC) has launched a consultation in relation to its new approach to assessing police force performance in England and Wales.

This new programme of inspections, or PEEL (police efficiency, effectiveness and legitimacy) assessments, will assess how well each of the 43 forces in England and Wales:
  • provides value for money (efficiency);
  • cuts crime (effectiveness); and
  • provides a service that fair and treats people properly (legitimacy).

Each force will be assessed against these three themes, and given one of four ratings for each theme:

  • outstanding;
  • good;
  • requires improvement; or
  • inadequate.

  • HMIC will publish the results of these assessments in a user-friendly format, making it easy for the public to tell at a glance how well their local force is performing and, over time, whether it is improving or deteriorating.

    This consultation gives the public the opportunity to have their say on the approach used to make these assessments, as well as the way they will be presented.

    The consultation period will run from today until Friday 29 August 2014 so everyone with an interest in policing – including the public and the service – will have an opportunity to have their say.

    HM Chief Inspector of Constabulary Tom Winsor said: “Our new programme of all-force assessments is a major undertaking for the Inspectorate, and will have significant implications for the police and therefore the public.

    “This is not assessment for assessment’s sake – the new inspection programme will allow the public to see clearly the performance of their local force. These all-force inspections will make a material contribution to the way police service improves the service it provides to the public.

    “With this in mind, we are offering members of the public the chance to give us their views about how we conduct these assessments, and what they should look like.

    “I encourage everyone with an interest in the service their local police force offers their community to read and respond to the consultation. This input will be invaluable in how we highlight both good practice within policing, and the areas where forces are falling short.”

    Respond to the consultation

    Peterborough residents worried about the state of their streets now that Amey PLC has snapped up the PCC cleaning contract, might not be amused by the latest announcement given below. Clearly the resources will be drawn elsewhere.  So we suggest dashing off an e-mail to the Amey Chief Executive Mel Ewell care of  or telephone 01865 713240 with your thoughts. 

    Also consider that hundreds of fish have been found dead in the River Nene around the Stanground area.  The PBROTRIB is still waiting after 2 weeks for the local Amey office to tell us which weedkiller they are currently spraying around the bases of our Hedgerows.  We think it is called Matrix which is not supposed to be sprayed without first checking domestic pets and hedgehogs are safe, and not in the line of fire.  

    The Amey numptie with the spray back pack just looked straight ahead. If your cat or dog has been affected tell your vet its probably Matrix, they should have Chemical Safety sheets or try this link:   It could well be that after the recent heavy rains the Matrix weedkiller, has now entered the river and water courses. A simple chemical test could prove it.

    MH17 UPDATE Wednesday PM The focus switches to Eindhoven & Hilversum as 200 victims return...

    Julian Bray writes: Wednesday Afternoon. MH17. So where are we now? The on ground investigation inside what now has to be regarded as a war zone,  has virtually slowed to a halt, as the focus is now on the two transport aircraft taking human body parts to Eindhoven airport.

    The first to land at Einhoven at approx 14:45 hrs is the C130 transport is Dutch (Royal Netherlands Airforce) the second from the Australian Air Force a C17, according to reports 40 coffins are on the first aircraft and 24 on the second.

    On arrival in the Netherlands, the dead will be accorded full honours, Church bells are being rung for a period of five minutes through out the country, the Dutch Royal family together with the Prime Minister and around 1000 relatives will attend. This part of the reception process involving relatives and diplomats from all affected countries, will be carried out behind screens and in private.

    "My old mans a dustman - he wears a dustmans hat.... Now he works for Amey. Thats put paid to that... "

    Vince Parker has for the last year or so been waging a one man anti-litter campaign to get the dirty parts of Peterborough (most of it) cleaned up. Almost on a daily basis he simply takes photographs with his camera phone and sends the evidence to a variety of councillors, and those who hold multi-million pound contracts to clean this City. 

    Its not suggested that residents physically pick up litter discarded by others - simply you don't know if used infected needles or other 'sharps' are inside - but if you can add to the piles of photographic evidence, and just ensure that you give a precise location, and time any picture was taken.

    MH17 "The World has changed since last week," Philip Hammond MP

    Courtesy Julian Bray Media Newslines

    Shrapnel indications detected....
    Julian Bray writes:

    The Rt. Hon Philip Hammond MP has only been the UK Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs since July 15th, having previously held the UK defence portfolio, and yet on July 21st Mr Hammond is forced to declare: "The World has changed since last week," possibly a classic understatement, as today the United Nations meets to impose wide ranging 'sectorial' sanctions on President Putins Russia.

    By sectorial, it is thought the sanctions will simply wipe out whole industrial categories regardless of the collateral damage the imposition may cause. UK suppliers like Smiths Industries, will find their calibration and measuring instruments are effectively on a banned list of technology products, the sanction also clearly financially and unexpectedly damaging to the UK supplier. Of course any applied santions will also have a knock on effect on our own household utility bills as Russia is a major gas supplier to the UK.  Winter is going to be very expensive for all of us...

    "Firstly, trust and my word. This is the most important thing in the jewellery business. Hence, my website is my name. My name in the trade is strong, known and respected!" 

    Fine compelling words, could have been written by a professional copywriter and a classic business play on the City promise "My Word is my Bond" so it was a trifle strange when some words akin to a BBC Rogue Traders sketch dropped in to the Trib Towers in box..  to soften the words we've turned them into purple coloured prose

    MH17 UPDATE:

    18 :00 hrs Sunday: QUESTION:

    Rebel Leader confirms that 'bits' of the 2 black boxes have been recovered and are in his custody. The big question: Why is he now talking about 'bits' when these units are designed to withstand execeptional trauma, and the earlier video footage (courtesy Reuters)of one being carried at the crash site shows the 'dayglo' orange painted unit in once piece?

    Sunday 12 Noon: Julian Bray Aviation Security Expert and Journalist writes: President Putin hopefully has a very thick skin and his press relations man a fast Air Ticket out of Russia? Simply the President isn't getting a bad International press, its far, far, far, worse than that. But stepping back from the media view of what has happened, where do we all go from here?

    Simply as international pressure grows on Moscow to allow the pathfinding observers free and unfettered access to what has to be regarded as a crime scene. A ceasefire first needs to be in place and the safety of the observers agreed by all sides. Following which, the actual investigators will then arrive to carry out the detailed work which in normal terms could take one to three years.

    Ideally, the investigators would need the entire crash site or 'crime scene' roped off, then fully blocked ie a grid pattern established. Each grid photographed with any items number referenced with tent card markers.

    The photographs are taken from several angles, and then a digivideo taken. Only then will the gloved fingertip search of the grid take place. Items all then carefully bagged and tagged. Clearly that isn't happening as live pictures show people walking all over the debris, some of it still burning. Video has also emerged of a person holding a dayglo orange coloured cylindrical shaped piece of debris; this could be one of the voice data recorders or a 'black box' previously reported by agencies, as already on their way to Moscow.

    Legal documents such as passports, identity cards and so on would also be tagged and cross referenced with the grid. Bodies on the ground would also be plotted on the grid reference documentation, so all the effects can at a later stage be married up and a realistic picture 'or snapshot' of what happened established.

    So the news today (Sunday) that 'rebels' have bagged and removed, by train, some 196 bodies from the crime scene, clearly without any detailed recording of information to a degree that passes international scrutiny, is a major blow to the overall investigation.

    There remains very little doubt that flight MH 17 (Flight MH17 to be retired and redesignated MH19 says Malaysian Airlines) was downed by a BUK Russian surface to air missile, and we in the West can only hope that it was indeed a catastrophic mistake, and not a deliberate act targeting a civil aircraft.

    MARCO CERESTE TWEETS: (CONSERVATIVE) "Complete devastation

    Marco Cereste@MarcoCereste4h
    you have seen nothing yet, the City is facing a £20m cut in our finances next year. Complete devastation unless we work together

    L&H Homes@LandHHomes
    and our Chairman Sidney McFarlane MBE offically declaring Hatton Grange, Open

    No, this isn't one of the London Plane trees, paid for by public subscription, ripped out of Bridge Street (and more to go in Long Causeway) but Peterborough City Council Leader Marco Cereste 'planting one'.

    Flight MH17 Air Disaster - Why were passengers flown through an unstable War Zone?

    Russian BUK missile array, thought to be the type that 'downed'  MH17 
    Julian Bray writes: With my 'Aviation Security, hat on, I've popped up on the BBC and BBC World TV and Radio networks, in the last few days all beamed from Trib Towers,  but  not had time to post about the MH17 air crash until now, as the situation is changing by the hour, and now virtually confirmed it was shot down by a ground to air missile. 

    In my contributions,  I was one of the first to publicly question the continuing use of a flight corridor routed directly over a war zone. Initially shouted down, by some so called telly 'experts' but now a major concern as the Malaysian Transport Minister - formerly the Defence Minister...has repeatedly tried to justify the decision and doing so again this Saturday morning.

    The civil non combat aircraft effectively - but lawfully - flying through a war zone at an approved altitude, although an advisory notice (NOTAM) was issued in June and Air France and British Airways accordingly re-routed their flights weeks back) is just one of the matters I am curently trying to rationally understand. Our thoughts however are with the families of the 298 who needlessly perished, on this full to capacity Boeing 777-200.

    I have tried to extract simple facts from speculation, on countless radio and television networks, both in the UK and worldwide, over the last 48 hours. I've therefore not had sufficient time to fully collect my written thoughts, as we enter a new phase of the investigation, this will now change.

    Drawing on my years of working closely with airlines, and at one time simultaneously holding full airside passes for both Heathrow and Gatwick, issued by different airlines for each airport; I have literally seen it all, including an aircraft experiencing a front wheel 'blowout' seconds before 'push back' from the stand, and foreign aircrew and aircraft hired in by a holiday airline to deal with peak period bookings, then mistaking an illuminated taxiway for the main runway at Gatwick and landing on it, clipping a BA aircraft in the process .... All the pilots had their licences revoked and had to resit all the exams, in the UK.   The operation of an airline, is effectively wholly divorced from those actually driving an aircraft.

    Groundbreaking First Domestic Violence Protection Order Granted in Cambridgeshire


    The very first Domestic Violence Protection Order [DVPO] in Cambridgeshire, was granted on Tuesday July 15th by Cambridge Magistrates' Court against a 42-year-old man from Cambridge.

    The order was applied for after an alleged violent incident on July 12th, and will be in place for 28 days. The DVPO prevents the 42-year-old male from visiting the home of, or contacting, his former partner, a 50-year-old woman from Cambridge.

    Det Insp Alan Page said: "This is the first time DVPO to be issued by the force since we launched them two weeks ago.

    "It demonstrates our commitment to use every power available to us in order to protect victims of abuse and reduce the likelihood of further incidents.

    "This order will give the victim time to consider the next steps she may wish to take without the threat of further violence."

    If a DVPO is breached the offender faces two months in prison or a fine of up to £5,000.

    Latest Neighbourhood Crime Updates July 2014
    Message from
    Sgt James Hobson (Police - Hampton)

    Neighbourhood Updates:


    Since the beginning of this month we saw a spike in the number of burglaries, particularly in the Hampton area.

    From the beginning of the month there have been four burglaries in Hampton the last one having occurred on the 11th of July. The common theme with all of these burglaries has been patio windows being smashed and the suspect has taken electrical items. These offences have happened during the day.

    Since the 11th, we have not seen any further offences. We have been putting out proactive patrols in the area during the day.


    There has been one burglary dwelling in Stanground since the beginning of the month. This offence shared similar features with those that have occurred in Hampton, that is, during daylight hours, a rear window having been smashed and electrical items being taken.

    We have a suspect who we are seeking at this time for Stanground and Hampton burglaries.

    There have been two shed burglaries in the Stanground area – please ensure that sheds are locked and any access gates to your gardens are locked as well.

    660 suspected paedophiles arrested in UK - Peterborough on the list.

    An unprecedented six-month operation coordinated by the NCA (National Crime Agency) and involving 45 police forces across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland has led to the arrest of 660 suspected paedophiles.

    More than 400 children across the UK have been safeguarded.

    Some of those arrested (including arrests in Peterborough) had unsupervised access to children in the course of their work. They include doctors, teachers, scout leaders, care workers and former police officers.

    Of the 660, 39 people were Registered Sex Offenders but the majority of those arrested had not previously come to law enforcement’s attention.

    The operation targeted people accessing indecent images of children online. It has stayed covert till today in order to protect children, identify offenders and secure evidence. The NCA and its partners are not revealing the methods they used to track down suspects so that they can use the same tactics again in the future.

    Charging decisions are awaited in most cases because of ongoing enquiries but so far charges brought range from possessing indecent images of children to serious sexual assault.

    NCA Deputy Director General Phil Gormley said: “This is the first time the UK has had the capability to coordinate a single targeted operation of this nature. Over the past six months we have seen unprecedented levels of cooperation to deliver this result.

    “Our aim was to protect children who were victims of, or might be at risk of, sexual exploitation. A child is victimised not only when they are abused and an image is taken. They are re-victimised every time that image is viewed by someone.

    Crimestoppers - Most Wanted


    THE HIGH COURT has ruled....

    People have a right to lampoon and criticise politicians and public officials under the Human Rights Act, the High Court has ruled.
    We have the full High Court judgment, saved as a page on here, which should save Cllr. Turnip (who we honestly and truly believe to be a serially useless local politician), a bob or two.

    Cllr Turnip (so dubbed this as he spent an astonishing £1,800:00 of Community Leaders Funding - designed for the good of the whole ward - on "raised vegetable beds for infants" at a very well funded local authority school, together with some other additional funding from the CLF to the same school, Cllr Harper is one of just 3 Governors - they should have 7 )

    We also note that www. park reappears as a website for Cllr Christopher Harper from time to time directing people to his Tory party webpage. When it was originally paid for by the Neighbourhood Watch, and he gave a clear undertaking to the PCC Solicitor and Marco Cereste Leader of Council, that he would take it down. Do not be taken in by Cllr Christopher Harper, or the certificates he displays. Simply there is no Park Farm Organisation.

    lampoon (lampoon) Pronunciation: /lamˈpuːn/ verb [with object] publicly criticize (someone or something) by using ridicule, irony, or sarcasm: the actor was lampooned by the press noun a speech or text lampooning someone or something: the magazine fired at God, Royalty, and politicians, using cartoons and lampoons.

    Derivatives: lampooner noun lampoonery noun lampoonist noun Origin: mid 17th century: from French lampon, said to be from lampons 'let us drink' (used as a refrain), from lamper 'gulp down', nasalized form of laper 'to lap (liquid).
