Southport teenager Rebecca Durkin strangled 'cruel alcoholic' mother

A teenager has been detained for strangling her alcoholic mother after a row at their Merseyside home. Clancy Durkin, 55, was found dead at Guildford Road, Southport in January. Rebecca Durkin, 19, was cleared of murder by a jury at Liverpool Crown Court, but she admitted manslaughter. Sentencing her to four years and eight months at a youth offenders' institution, Judge Clement Goldstone QC said she had suffered "long-term cruelty" at the hands of her mother. "You did your best for each other, but you suffered long-term cruelty at her hands. "Her addiction to alcohol clouded her judgement," Judge Goldstone, the Recorder of Liverpool, told her. "You'd had enough and that is something you will have to live with for the rest of your life." 'Lost control' During her trial, Rebecca Durkin said she had not intended to kill her mother but she lost control.

Clancy Durkin was an alcoholic, the CPS said The Crown Prosecution (CPS) said Clancy had a "troubled relationship" with her daughter. The two women argued frequently and Clancy told relatives she thought Rebecca was going to kill her, the CPS said. It said her mother had called staff at Southport College, where her daughter was a student, claiming Rebecca had tried to smother her.

Rebecca confided in friends she had tried to kill her mother and had attempted suicide because of the problems she was having with her mother, the CPS said. Claire Lindley, from the CPS, said: "This is a tragic case where alcohol has no doubt played a part in the relationship Rebecca had with her mother. "Rebecca Durkin had been receiving counselling to help her with the relationship, but in January this year she took her mother's life and she must now come to terms with the consequences of that."

Sabrina Moss murder: Three found guilty of shooting mother

Three men have been found guilty of murdering a mother who was shot while out celebrating her 24th birthday. Sabrina Moss was killed in Kilburn, north-west London, in August last year. The nursery teacher and a friend were shot from near point-blank range, although they were not the intended targets, jurors were told. Hassan Hussain, 29, from Willesden; Martell Warren, 22, of Kensal Green, and Yassin James, 20, from Wembley, were convicted at the Old Bailey. Miss Moss and Sabrina Gachette, 25, were outside a takeaway shop, the Woody Grill, with other people when they were shot by two hooded men armed with a sub-machine gun and a shotgun. Not intended targets Miss Moss was shot in the heart and died in hospital. Miss Gachette was hit in the back by more than 50 pellets, but survived. Drug dealers Hussain, James and Warren were also convicted of the attempted murder of Miss Gachette.

Former Met PC jailed for selling stories to the Sun

A former Metropolitan Police constable who worked with his mother to sell a story to The Sun newspaper about a British soap actor's attempted suicide has been jailed for 12 months. Thomas Ridgeway, 31, passed two stories to the tabloid through his mother. Ridgeway, of Wallington, south London, admitted two charges of misconduct in public office earlier this year. His sentence can be disclosed after his mother, Sandra Ridgeway, was given an 18-week suspended sentence.

Sandra Ridgeway, of New Malden, south-west London, admitted aiding and abetting misconduct in public office. At an earlier hearing, Old Bailey Judge Richard Marks QC told former PC Thomas Ridgeway: "This sort of offending, as you will understand, is far too serious to be dealt with in any other way than a sentence of immediate imprisonment." The judge said Ridgeway, who was based at Kennington, south London, first provided confidential information for money in 2004 when "a well-known British actor" attempted to take his own life. Ridgeway's mother acted as a conduit between him and the newspaper, the court was told. The judge added: "They were, not unnaturally, very interested in the story and paid your mother a total of £1,600, of which she gave you half." The second story concerned the alleged sexual activity of off-duty police officers. The judge said: "It appears that you learned of this as a result of gossip around the police station, you were not yourself present at the pub when these events are alleged to have occurred, and once again you decided to pass this information to The Sun for financial gain."

This time, his mother was paid £1,000 after two stories appeared in the newspaper. "You have lost your career and lost your good character," the judge told him. "You effectively had two paymasters, as the prosecution put it - your employers, the Metropolitan Police, and The Sun."

Attack victim says it was like being in a gangster movie

A father of four who was attacked at his home in south-west London has said it felt like he was in a gangster film. Paul Kohler, 55, opened the door of his Kings Road home in Wimbledon to a group of masked men on Monday night. The gang then brutally beat the academic, leaving him with a badly damaged eye socket and bruises. Speaking to BBC London, he said: "It is phenomenally terrifying... you almost stand outside of it and look on as if it's some gangster movie." During the attack, Mr Kohler was thinking about protecting his family. At the time, his 24-year-old daughter, her boyfriend and his wife were in the home. "It's obviously terrifying but in a way it helped as you don't think of yourself, you think about defending the home, defending your pride; so it was very much defending the family." 'Overwhelmingly positive' Mr Kohler says he cannot move his eye to the left as his eye socket has been fractured and the muscle damaged. He is due to have reconstructive surgery this week. The academic, who is the head of the law school at the School of Oriental and African Studies, says he thinks he will make a full recovery and will be back to teach at the start of the new term. "It could have been worse, I could have lost my sight," he said. "I don't want to sit here harping on about how unlucky I've been, it could have been a lot worse." Since the incident, Mr Kohler said he had received a lot of good will. "It's been overwhelmingly positive in that so many friends have come forward as have ex-students that I haven't seen for years. "This was an awful thing… but what it showed me was the humanity of the people around us." Two men have been charged with causing grievous bodily harm and aggravated burglary. They were remanded in custody until another court appearance later this month. Police say they are looking for two more suspects.

Cocaine dealer jailed for seven years at Exeter Crown Court

A drug dealer has been jailed for seven years for supplying cocaine worth thousands of pounds to a network of buyers in Devon. Graphic designer Zachary Gardener received large payments into his three bank accounts from dealers operating in the student areas of Plymouth and had a cocaine cutting workshop at his home in Holsworthy. Scores of text messages showed he was buying the drugs in bulk and dividing them up to be sold on the streets or through a network of friends. He claimed he was running a small scale operation and only supplying a small group of party goers but police found a large supply of a cutting agent as well as mixing bowls at his home. Gardener’s operation was raided after a former partner was arrested on suspicion of selling drugs from her flat in the centre of Bideford and his rooms at the family home in Holsworthy were searched. Gardener, 25, of Mitre Court, Holsworthy, admitted being concerned in the supply of cocaine and was jailed for seven years by Judge Francis Gilbert, QC, at Exeter Crown Court.

He told him: ”You were retailing through others in Plymouth. I reject your evidence you were only supplying on a social scale to a few friends when going to parties. “You were involved in the supply of cocaine on a commercial scale for profit. The evidence was overwhelming. You were heavily engaged in dealing and bought cocaine in multi ounce quantities. “You were buying cocaine and wholesaling to friends in Plymouth who were retailing to others. Your accounts showed you received more than £18,000 which was paid in at Plymouth between late 2011 and April 2012. “You were in possession of a further 202 grams of benzocaine, which is a cutting agent. You had your own business buying and selling on a commercial scale and clearly played a significant operational and management role in which you were motivated by financial advantage.” Gardener admitted supplying the drug but his role in the operation was determined by the Judge after a five day fact finding hearing in June. At the end of that case Judge Gilbert identified links between text traffic between Gardener and his dealers in Plymouth and payments by them into bank branches in Mutley and Armada Way. During the trial the court heard how Gardener and his customers used drugs slang as code to hide their dealing in a trail of thousands of text messages. A police expert explained that terms like snow, lively and posh to denote cocaine; cheese and red diesel for skunk. They also had code words for different amounts, such as Hen for an eighth of an ounce, short for Henry VIII, and Kellogg for kilogram. Trips to buy or sell drugs were described as missions, deliveries as tickets, money as paper, and drugs or personal use as Percy. Ex-public schoolboy Gardener claimed the money paid into his accounts came from organising dance events in North Devon or the repayment of loans to friends. He said he had sold legal highs and some of the cash credits shown on bank statements came from this. He admitted sharing drugs with friends but insisted he was never a commercial dealer and never made any money. Richard Crabb, defending, said Gardener had been very far from the top of the supply chain and his text messages showed he was buying his drugs from a bigger-time dealer nicknamed Twinkletoes.

Boy, 16, charged with stabbing two men in Blackwood

Boy, 16, charged with stabbing two men in Blackwood Continue reading the main story Related Stories Boy arrested for attempted murder A 16-year-old boy has been charged with two counts of wounding after two men were stabbed in Blackwood, Caerphilly, Gwent Police say. One man, aged 29, is in a critical condition at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff. A second man, aged 44, also from Blackwood, is in a serious condition at the Royal Gwent Hospital, Newport. The teenager was held after an incident on Bryn Road and Apollo Way at about 23:15 BST on Friday. Gwent Police said the youth was initially arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

Former DWP staff go rogue to help benefit claimants who feel they have been wrongly penalised

Three disgruntled former civil servants have been inundated with pleas for help after they set up a website offering emergency advice to welfare claimants who believe their benefits have been wrongly docked. The three women behind the initiative, who all worked for the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), allege that many Jobcentre staff are instructed to veto a set proportion of claims. The allegation is strongly denied by the department. The women, who are based in the North-east of England and have not made their names public, launched the website in June without any fanfare. In the last few days it has gone viral and the women have been bombarded by claimants accusing the DWP of unfairly cutting their benefits.

On one day last week the website, jobseekersanctionadvice.com, received 200 messages, half from people protesting against being wrongly penalised. The website organisers, who have called on support from five other people with DWP experience, worked until after midnight to clear the backlog. One of the organisers, “Jean”, said she had become disillusioned by the treatment meted out to some claimants during her final years at a Jobcentre, alleging that staff were pressurised to sanction needy people for the smallest mistake in their claim. “I decided one Sunday to resign and I never went back. I had loved the job until the last three years but then I could see the way things were going. I got tired of fighting the system,” she said. “I became active on forums offering advice to people, the more I became involved, the more outraged I became.” With two like-minded ex-colleagues, she decided to set up the website to offer free advice to claimants. “We didn’t promote the website, we had a few inquiries and helped a few people. Then it got picked up and everything went bananas,” she told The Independent. “It’s a harsh environment... everything is designed to trip people up, they are asked to do things that are unsuitable. Some offices are OK and others aren’t – it all depends what manager you have.” An internal investigation by the DWP last year concluded there were no secret targets, either nationally or locally, for sanctioning benefits.

A spokesman said: “Every day up and down the country our Jobcentre advisers are successfully helping people off benefits and into work. “We now have an employment rate which has never been higher and record numbers of people in jobs. “Decisions on sanctions aren’t taken lightly, but it’s only right that people claiming benefits should do everything they can to find work if they are able. “There are no targets for sanctions and we have a well-established system of hardship provision in place.” But Mark Serwotka, general secretary of the PCS union, said: “It’s a disgrace how, for political reasons, Jobcentres are being turned from places where unemployed people go to get help into places of fear for many claimants. “We want the sanctions regime scrapped entirely, it serves no purpose other than to demonise and punish people for being out of work.” He said a recent PCS survey of Jobcentre staff found almost two-thirds said they had experienced pressure to refer claimants for a sanction inappropriately.

Cocaine worth millions seized on banana boat in Dover

BORDER Force seized 40 kilos of cocaine from a cargo ship in Dover on Wednesday. The drugs, once cut and sold on the streets, have a potential value running into millions of pounds. Officers from Border Force’s Felixstowe-based national deep rummage team searched the MV Esmeralda and discovered the drugs in the hold.

The ship was en route from South America to Rotterdam loaded with bananas. There were no arrests and the ship was allowed to continue its journey. The investigation was passed to the National Crime Agency and enquiries are continuing. Paul Morgan, director of Border Force South East and Europe said:“This seizure has prevented a large amount of cocaine from reaching the streets of Europe. “Border Force officers use a variety of methods and technology to prevent class A drugs entering the UK, and their expertise is regularly demonstrated by seizures like this. “Working with the NCA and other agencies we are determined to bring to justice those involved in this illicit trade – from the individual smugglers up to the organised criminals at the top of the tree.” Border Force officers are the front line in protecting the country and play a key role in detecting illegal immigration, disrupting serious and organised crime and helping to prevent the threat of terrorism.

Savile charity 'to fight against payouts for victims'

A charity set up by Jimmy Savile is to challenge a compensation scheme for victims of the sex attacker. The Jimmy Savile Charitable Trust will take its case to the Court of Appeal later this year, victims' lawyers said. It wants to overturn an agreed scheme, under which the Savile estate, which is separate to the trust, the BBC and the NHS are liable to compensate victims. Liz Dux, who represents 176 of the late DJ's victims, said her clients would be "angry and disappointed" by the move. The charitable trust controls £3.7m and is a separate entity to the Savile estate. Ms Dux said the estate had its own pot of funds, which is where its share of payouts are to come from. Continue reading the main story “ Start Quote The victims deserve redress and closure. They have suffered enough” Liz Dux Abuse lawyer She said she could therefore not understand why the charity trustees were taking the legal action. "For one, it's going to mean that more precious funds that should have gone to victims are being spent on legal costs, which is exactly what the settlement scheme was designed to avoid," she told the BBC. "And secondly, the charitable trust is not even responsible for compensating victims - that is for the estate to do." Unrestricted access Savile is said to have abused more than 200 people over a 60-year period. Last month, investigators found the ex-BBC DJ sexually assaulted victims aged five to 75 in NHS hospitals over decades of unrestricted access. The High Court approved a compensation scheme for victims earlier this year. The Jimmy Savile Charitable Trust was granted leave in mid-July by the Court of Appeal to challenge the ruling. Victims' lawyers were informed by the court last week. The appeal is expected to take place between September and January, Ms Dux said. Under the agreed settlement scheme, abuse victims will be able to claim against the BBC, the NHS and the Savile estate. 'In the dark' Ms Dux said all three bodies agreed they would make payouts and that claims to the BBC and the NHS would not deplete the estate's available funds. "The victims, the Savile estate, the NHS and the BBC are all acting on the same side. We all want and support the approved scheme," she said. "The scheme is a pragmatic and sensible solution to what will otherwise be protracted and hugely expensive litigation." The abuse lawyer added: "The charitable trust offered no explanation then as to why it objected to the scheme and even now we and the victims remain in the dark. No money can be paid from the charitable trust to compensate victims. "The victims deserve redress and closure. They have suffered enough. We urge the Court of Appeal to back the original scheme as previously agreed so this process can move towards a much-desired conclusion." Ms Dux said the Savile estate had funds of about £3.2m last year, but had probably been "haemorrhaging" money in legal fees.

AIRLINES ON EBOLA RED ALERT

Fears over the ability to contain the spread of Ebola were augmented last night as it emerged the body of a young stowaway was found hidden in on a U.S. military plane.

The Pentagon said the young boy, believed to be of African origin, was found near the wheel of a cargo plane which landed in Germany.

British airlines are on alert for cases of the deadly virus, after tests revealed a man died in Nigeria from the disease, having been allowed to board an international flight from Liberia.

Patrick Sawyer, a consultant for Liberia’s Finance Ministry, had been in Liberia for the funeral of his sister, who also died from the disease, and was on his way back to his home in the US.

The 40-year-old arrived in Lagos, Nigeria, on July 20 and had suffered from vomiting and diarrhoea on two flights. He was put in isolation in hospital and died on Friday.

Nigeria has closed the Lagos hospital where Mr Sawyer was treated and put its airports and ports on 'red alert'.

ASKY airlines, the carrier which flew Mr Sawyer, suspended flights to the capitals of Liberia and Sierra Leone yesterday.

In Britain, the Department of Transport said UK airlines are 'monitoring the situation'.

Virgin Atlantic told the Daily Express their staff have been trained to spot the signs and symptoms of the virulent disease, which has claimed the lives of 672 people in West Africa since February.

The plane was on a routine mission in Africa, and had made stops in Senegal, Mali, Chad, Tunisia and the Naval Air Station Sigonella in Sicily before arriving at Ramstein.

It is thought the boy climbed aboard in Mali, which borders Guinea - where the current Ebola outbreak originated at the end of last year.

It comes as hospitals and medical centres across the UK remain on red alert for the virus, with doctors being told to look out for symptoms of the disease which can go unnoticed for three weeks and kills 90 per cent of victims.

The Department of Health confirmed protections have been put in place to deal with the deadly bug, should it spread to Britain.

A spokesman said: ‘We are well prepared to identity and deal with any potential cases of Ebola, although there has never been a case in this country.’

The Government’s chief scientific advisor also issued a frank warning about the disease, which he said could have a ‘major impact’ on the UK.

Sir Mark Walport said: ‘The UK is fortunate in its geographical position. We’re an island. But we are living in a completely interconnected world where disruptions in countries far away will have major impacts.

‘The most dangerous infections of humans have always been those which have emerged from other species,’ he told the Daily Telegraph, referring to the virus originating in fruit bats and monkeys.

He said the Government was ‘keeping a close eye’ on the outbreak and was prepared for the disease spreading to Britain, but insisted any risk was ‘very low’.

He added: ‘We have to think about risk and managing risk appropriately.’

Public Health England has added to fears about the spread of the virus by saying it was ‘clearly not under control’.
