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’.



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.

 A British man has also been tested for the Ebola virus, putting doctors on red alert that it could be on its way to the UK. A spokesman for Hong Kong's Queen Elizabeth Hospital, said the Centre for Health Protection (CHP) will be notified if it is confirmed the patient is suffering from the Ebola virus. In Nigeria health officials said today, they are in the process of tracing 30,000 people at risk of contracting the disease after coming into contact with a Liberian man who died on Friday. Meanwhile, the British man was taken to hospital in Birmingham after complaining of feeling ‘feverish’ on a flight back to the Midlands from West Africa. He had been travelling from Benin, Nigeria via Paris, France when he became unwell on Monday. However, after undergoing a number of tests he was given the all-clear for the virus which has already killed 672 people in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone and infected more than 1,200 since it was first diagnosed in February. In another scare, medical staff at Charing Cross Hospital in London became concerned a man in his twenties had caught the virus this week. But his symptoms were quickly confirmed as not being linked to the bug and doctors ruled out the need for an Ebola test.

The contrast between Iyke's image of first class luxury is in stark contrast to the thousands of terrified Liberians who are living in fear of contracting the deadly disease.
However, much of the anger about his image stemmed from fear among Nigerian citizens that Iyke appeared to be travelling back to the country without having been tested to see if he was infected.
Twitter user @Avariberry posted a message reading: 'Jim Iyke or Not... he gotta be screened. #TestJimIyke.'
Meanwhile @IcallDibbz_ said: 'Please ooo, James Ikechukwu, aka Jim Iyke, should be quarantined.'
Others picked up on the fact Iyke had an expensive face mask to protect himself, but was wearing a short-sleeved T-shirt.

Fears of a global Ebola pandemic are 'justified' an expert has said as Nigerian health officials try to trace 30,000 people at risk of contracting the deadly disease

Fears of a global Ebola pandemic are 'justified' an expert has said as Nigerian health officials try to trace 30,000 people at risk of contracting the deadly disease following the death of Patrick Sawyer. The U.S. citizen boarded a flight in Liberia carrying the disease to Nigeria, potentially infecting 'anyone on the same plane'. It comes as Nigerian actor Jim Iyke sparked outrage, posting a picture of himself wearing an Ebola mask while sitting in a first class airport lounge as he fled Liberia. The 'Nollywood' star posted a message on his Instagram page saying he had cut short a business trip to Monrovia in Liberia -  where at least 600 people have already died from the disease. The death toll for this, the worst outbreak recorded since the Ebola virus was discovered in 1976, stands at 672, while more than 1,200 people have been infected.

Ex-policeman on Azelle Rodney murder charge

A former policeman is to be charged with murdering a man who was shot dead after a car was stopped by officers in north London nine years ago. Azelle Rodney, 24, was travelling in a car that was stopped by police, who were looking for a group they believed were on their way to an armed robbery. An inquiry last year chaired by Sir Christopher Holland ruled there was "no lawful justification" for the shooting. The CPS has now made a decision to charge the man, identified only as E7. The former police marksman will appear at Westminster Magistrates' Court for a preliminary hearing on 10 September. 'Waited a long time' Mr Rodney was shot six times - in the arm, back and head - in Edgware in April 2005. He was travelling with two other men when officers stopped the car and opened fire. His mother Susan Alexander said: "I am very pleased at the CPS's decision to prosecute the officer who killed my son. "I have waited a long time to see this day and hope this prosecution will lead to justice for Azelle. "Whilst I am disappointed at the decision not to prosecute the commissioner in relation to the failures which were found by Sir Christopher Holland regarding the planning and control of the operation, his report makes clear that there were significant failures on the part of the Metropolitan Police and we deserve an immediate and unreserved apology for those failures."

Is the world's deadliest disease in its way to Britain?

 Fears rise as the biggest ever outbreak of the Ebola virus rampages into one of Africa's most sophisticated cities

There was nothing unusual-looking about the passenger arriving at Heathrow from Lagos. He was carrying one of the most deadly diseases known to mankind, but it wasn’t noticed by overstretched Nigerian airport officials before departure, nor by attendants on the flight, despite their special training to watch out for feverish passengers.

Because Ebola is a disease that has an incubation period of between two and 21 days, it’s more than likely that the final line of defence — immigration staff at Heathrow — failed to notice anything untoward about him either. It wasn’t as if he was so unsteady or unwell that he couldn’t answer basic questions.

And so he was waved through. Little did anyone realise that his initial flu-like symptoms — fever, headache, achy limbs, sore throat — would soon become something much, much worse.

Ebola, a disease which is fatal in 90 per cent of cases and for which there is no vaccine and no known cure, was now in Britain for the first time. It would soon be spreading across the country, killing almost everyone it touched.

Fortunately this is an imaginary situation, but an Ebola epidemic is the nightmare scenario which inspires Hollywood disaster movie writers and keeps public health officials awake at night.

However, there is now widespread alarm among experts that it could actually happen, because the deadly disease has spread for the first time from remote jungle villages to claim its first victim in Lagos, one of Africa’s most sophisticated cities, with air links to major cities worldwide, including London.

And woe betide anyone who comes in close contact with an Ebola victim. While the virus’s one virtue is that it isn’t as easily transmitted as, say, an airborne influenza, it is highly contagious if you come near enough to be infected by any sort of bodily fluid.

 

This means not only contamination from vomiting and diarrhoea — the next stage after the fever and headaches — but saliva from a kiss, sweat from a mopped brow, or even, it is thought, a sneeze.

If a sufferer is looked after by loved ones, only the most ruthless sanitation regime will save them. If he or she seeks medical help, risks could be even greater.

As one British expert told me yesterday, if an Ebola victim was misdiagnosed and ended up being admitted to a normal hospital ward, the ‘consequences would be disastrous’ as nurses and doctors unwittingly passed the virus to other patients and colleagues. 


new study suggests that the ‘healthier’ electronic cigarette alternative may not be as harmless for you after all.

After e-cigarettes started exploding mid puff, many suggested the benefits still outweighed the risks.

But now a new study suggests that the ‘healthier’ electronic cigarette alternative may not be as harmless for you after all.

Regular cigarettes contain nearly 600 additives, 69 of which are carcinogenic.

Unlike normal cigarettes which burn dried tobacco, e-cigarettes use a battery-powered device to heat a nicotine solution known as e-liquid.

This produces an aerosol that can be inhaled (vaping). Higher end e-cigarettes allow the heat temperature to be adjusted, which can intensify the nicotine hit.

As the e-liquid does not contain these carcinogenic additives it was believed the lung disease risk was minimal in comparison.

However, research by Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY, suggests the way particles are broken down in e-cigarettes may irritate lung tissue and cause disease.

Particles in tobacco-based cigarettes have a median size of 0.3 to 0.5 microns, but in e-cigarettes they are a lot smaller at 0.18 to 0.27 microns.

This means particles can travel deep within the lungs and embed themselves in the alveoli, the tiny air sacs in the lungs where the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide takes place, causing damage.

Drivers involved in accidents will have phones checked to see if devices were being used

 Drivers involved in accidents will have their phones checked to see if they were sending or receiving calls or texts at the time, it has emerged Drivers involved in accidents will have their phones checked to see if they were sending or receiving calls or texts at the time, it has emerged. Charities and pressure groups have backed the newly-introduced police idea to use handset data as possible evidence in prosecutions. But critics warned the plan could cause chaos over minor prangs, delaying the recovery of crashed vehicles and preventing drivers contacting relatives.

Chief Constable Suzette Davenport, of Gloucestershire Police, has issued her officers guidelines to check phones at any roadside accident. Previously it only happened where people were killed or injured. Ms Davenport is currently responsible for roads policing at the Association of Chief Police Officers. She is determined to reduce the number of accidents due to motorists using handsets. AA president Edmund King welcomed the move.

He said: "Many drivers seem addicted to their phones and can't resist looking at a text or tweet at the wheel." He added: "We need a really concerted effort to crack this addiction with harsher penalties linked to a well-publicised information and enforcement campaign." Motorists are four times more likely to crash if they use a mobile phone while driving, according to the Government's Think! safety awareness programme. Reaction times are said to be dramatically slower - up to half as fast - compared with normal driving. Under current legislation it is illegal to use a hand-held mobile while driving, even when a vehicle has stopped in traffic or is at a crawl. Latest estimates by researchers show that more than 500 people are killed or injured on the roads every year due to mobile phone use.

Disturbance at 'crisis' prison HMP Ranby

Disturbance has broken out at a Nottinghamshire prison. The Prison Officers Association said it started when all 120 inmates on one wing at HMP Ranby refused to return to their cells. However, the Ministry of Justice said 30 to 60 prisoners were involved in the incident, which began at 12:00 BST. There has been "minor damage" but no injuries, the MoJ said. The jail was criticised in a report this week for high levels of violence. Glyn Travis, assistant secretary of the Prison Officers' Association (POA), said it was a "serious incident". "We have got national resources at the prison trying to establish a surrender plan," he said. "We know 60 prisoners have been actively involved," he said. 'Chronic staff shortfalls' An MoJ spokesman said the rest of the prison remained on a restricted regime and "calm". A report by HM Inspectorate of Prisons released earlier this week said the prison, near Worksop, was "in crisis".

A MAN has been sent to jail for trying to smuggle millions of pounds of cocaine into the country through Portsmouth International Port.

Michael Ebanks (pictured) was given a 15-year sentence at Portsmouth Crown Court for conspiracy to import drugs between April 2011 and October 2012.

The 33-year-old was arrested at the ferryport on October 18 last year after he was found with 52kg of high-purity cocaine.

The drugs, brought over from Spain, had a street value of between £4.8m and £10.4m.

The cocaine was being smuggled hidden in crates of recycled rubber, which Ebanks claimed was for resale to tyre companies.

Ebanks pleaded not guilty to taking part in the conspiracy and said he had been duped by others.

But a jury found him guilty of the charge.

In handing down the sentence, Recorder John Trevaskis said Ebanks, of Page Heath Lane, Bromley, played a major role.

He said: ‘I’ve concluded that the preponderance of evidence identifies you at the top of a significant role.

‘You were motivated in doing this by financial advantage.’

The court heard Ebanks had made several trips to Malaga to organise the import of the drugs, and had made repeated journeys to a remote farm in West Sussex where drugs were stored.

Prosecuting barrister Elizabeth Bussey-Jones said: ‘This entire operation was essentially a scam set up to disguise the real purpose of the trips.’

Mark West of Lansdowne Road in Purley, Surrey, was also involved but pleaded guilty to his role in the conspiracy.

He will be sentenced later this year.

David Cameron’s flagship Big Society Network is being investigated by the Charity Commission over allegations that it misused government funding and made inappropriate payments to its directors – including a Tory donor. The organisation, which was launched by the Prime Minister in 2010, was given at least £2.5 million of National Lottery funding and public-sector grants despite having no record of charitable activity.

Peaches Geldof died of heroin overdose, inquest rules

Peaches Geldof died of a heroin overdose, a coroner has ruled. The TV presenter had been a heroin addict and took the substitute drug methadone for two-and-a-half years before her death, the inquest heard. A police search found 6.9g of heroin in her house but there was no indication she had planned to take her own life. Her husband, musician Tom Cohen, told the hearing in Gravesend the 25-year-old had started using the drug again in February this year. He had witnessed her flushing drugs she had hidden in their loft down the toilet, but was not aware of any other drugs in the house until they were found by police. In his evidence, the musician said his wife had taken weekly drugs tests since seeking treatment for her addiction two years ago. Although she had informed him they were clear, Mr Cohen said he now believed Geldof had been lying about the tests.

Ricky Reel: Police 'spied on dead student's family'

A mother campaigning for an inquiry into her son's death in 1997 says she has been told she was spied on by undercover Scotland Yard officers. Student Ricky Reel was 20 when he vanished during a night out in London, shortly after he and his friends had been racially abused by two white men. His body was found in the River Thames. The man tasked with investigating undercover policing did not name specific families but criticised the "routine gathering" of information. Mr Reel's mother, Sukhdev, said she had been informed that officers gathered intelligence on her in 1998 and 1999.

Ex-MEP Nikki Sinclaire charged with money laundering and misconduct

Former MEP Nikki Sinclaire has been charged with money laundering and misconduct in public office. Ms Sinclaire, 45, who represented the West Midlands for UKIP, then as an independent, will appear at Birmingham Magistrates' Court on 17 September. She is accused of making false and dishonest submissions for travelling expenses and transferring the proceeds of fraud through a bank account. The offences allegedly occurred between 1 October 2009 and 31 July 2010. Ms Sinclaire was elected as a UKIP MEP in 2009 but was expelled from the party the following year in a row over its membership of the Europe of Freedom and Democracy grouping. She remained in the European Parliament as an independent before forming the We Demand A Referendum Now Party in 2012, but lost her seat in elections held last May. She was originally arrested on 22 February 2012 and has since been on police bail. Three other people were also arrested but will face no further action.

Parents have been warned to be on the lookout for an 8ft (2.4m) boa constrictor which could pose a risk to small children.

Parents have been warned to be on the lookout for an 8ft (2.4m) boa constrictor which could pose a risk to small children.

The reptile was reported missing from an address in Skelmersdale, Lancashire, on Tuesday evening.

Heavy-bodied boa constrictors, which kill their prey by wrapping themselves around it, pose a potential risk to children and animals as they might coil around them seeking warmth.

They can also deliver a nasty bite if they feel threatened.

However, they are not venomous or normally aggressive towards humans.

Sky's Becky Johnson, reporting from Skelmersdale, said the snake might have slithered down the toilet and be hiding in the drains.

"The neighbours didn't even know they had an 8ft boa constrictor," she said.

"It could come up the drain at one of the neighbour's houses, it could also be in the attic.

"Lancashire County Council have been out searching drains, but so far there is no sign of it." 

Experts said the boa constrictor was likely to be sleeping somewhere warm.

Mysterious spyplane circling the skies could be eavesdropping on mobile phone calls

The aircraft has been linked in the past to shadowy fleet of surveillance planes said to be operated by the Metropolitan Police.

Darren Burn, who lives beneath the flight path says he also saw a second spyplane.

About 6.30 last night I could hear and see a light aircraft circling for over an hour around my house in Oval.

I downloaded a flight tracker and discovered that it was another unmarked aircraft similar to what I'd read about earlier in the day.

It had a tail sign G-UMMI.

Norfolk road death couple 'made 999 request'

A man and a woman killed on a dual carriageway asked for police to be called shortly before their deaths, detectives revealed. Police said Tadas Zaleskas, 26, and Nonita Karajevaite, 24, were both killed on the A47 in Norfolk on Sunday. Police are treating Ms Karajevaite's death as suspicious, believing she may have been pushed into the traffic. Officers said the pair had earlier each separately told a farm shop worker to call the police. Mr Zaleskas and Ms Karajevaite left the shop before the call was made. Walking barefoot They couple, originally from Lithuania, were engaged and had lived in nearby Emneth. Both died after being hit by a silver Kia car as they walked along the A47 eastbound carriageway, near Terrington St John at 14:15 BST. They died at the scene. Ms Karajevaite's death is being treated as suspicious following allegations she was forcibly pushed into the path of oncoming vehicles. Police said the pair had been walking barefoot when the crash happened.

Alexander Litvinenko death

A public inquiry will be held into the death of the Russian dissident Alexander Litvinenko, the UK Home Secretary Theresa May has announced. Mr Litvinenko, a former KGB officer who became a British citizen, died in 2006 in a London hospital after he was poisoned with radioactive polonium. The investigation will examine whether the Russian state was behind his death. Mr Litvinenko's widow, Marina, said she was "relieved and delighted", saying the "truth will win out in the end". Announcing the inquiry, Mrs May said she hoped it would be of "some comfort" to Mrs Litvinenko. The inquiry will be chaired by senior judge Sir Robert Owen, who was the coroner at Mr Litvinenko's inquest last year. Sir Robert delayed the inquest and called for a public inquiry because the inquest could not consider sensitive evidence because of national security fears. That inquiry will now go ahead, with much of the evidence in public but some closed sessions for sensitive evidence.

Police appeal over Kester David railway arch death

Kester David's body was discovered behind a building in Bloomfield Lane, Palmers Green, in 2010. Detectives are appealing for anyone who could help them track Mr David's movements in the days before he died. Mr David's 80-year-old mother pleaded for anyone with information "however small" to come forward.

Bridlington hotel manhunt: Landlady Bei Carter was 'stabbed'

A guest house landlady found dead in one of her rooms died from a single stab wound to the chest, police said. The body of Bei Carter, 49, was found on Friday night at the Morayland Guest House on Marshall Street, Bridlington. John Heald, 53, from Rotherham, who was staying at the property, is wanted in connection with her murder. He is also wanted over another offence in Sheffield on 13 July and more than 150 police, including armed officers, are involved in the hunt for him. Police said there had been a number of reported sightings of him in Rotherham, Wath-upon-Dearne, Mexborough and Doncaster where he had lived for most of his life. Ch Supt Jason Harwin, of South Yorkshire Police, said he had no information to suggest Mr Heald was armed with a gun, despite specialist armed officers being involved in the operation. "We've got additional officers out on patrol at the moment and they are working with local people to help them understand what's happening," he said. A £5,000 reward has been offered by charity Crimestoppers for information leading to his arrest and an appeal has been broadcast on the BBC Crimewatch programme.

YouTube star Michelle Phan sued over copyright

leading YouTube entrepreneur is facing legal action for alleged copyright infringement in her videos. Ultra Records, which has musicians Kaskade, deadmau5 and Calvin Harris on its books, is suing Michelle Phan. The label and its publishing arm claim she has used about 50 of their songs without permission in her YouTube videos and on her own website. But one of the artists whose work she is alleged to have used has said he supports Ms Phan. Continue reading the main story “ Start Quote Copyright law is a dinosaur, ill-suited for the landscape of today's media.” Kaskade DJ on the Ultra label Kaskade, whose work features most prominently in the record label's complaint, said: "Copyright law is a dinosaur, ill-suited for the landscape of today's media." He expressed his disbelief on Twitter that his own record label was suing Ms Phan for copyright infringement. "And the kicker... they're citing her using my songs for the suit. Come. On," he wrote on the site. But Kaskade, who was nominated for a Grammy award last year, said there was little he could do to stop the label pursuing the case. In response, Ms Phan thanked him and wrote: "Your music inspired not just myself, but millions of my followers to dance and dream on."

Hot weather mayhem Teenage couple aged 14 and 15 arrested for performing sex act on beach just yards from families

A mother plays happily in the sand with her young son - both oblivious to the sex and yobbish antics around them. Astonishingly a 15-year-old girl performed a sex act on a boy aged just 14 as they frolicked in shallow water at Troon’s South Beach. Other hate-filled youths abused police as they tried to assist a teenage girl sprawled incapable on the sand. And as both Troon and Ayr were plunged into Costa del Scumbag mode once again, decent visitors and residents have had enough. The ghastly goings on have left folk furious - and prompted police into their biggest zero tolerance operation ever. Senior officers have masterminded plans to crack down on the drunken louts - and used stop and search powers 300 times on Troon beach last week.

Some youths tried to bury their cheap vodka and tonic wine under the hot sands as police took away drink. Inspector Sean Mangan praised his officers for cracking down on the marauding mobs who spill off packed trains from Glasgow and Paisley. It should have been a quiet Wednesday, but with a forecast for hot weather it triggered an avalanche of sun and drink-seeking teenagers. Insp Mangan said: “It does not just happen at the weekend - as soon as the schools and colleges stop it can happen any day. “We seized and destroyed all drink from both under-agers and those in their company we suspected of supplying it. “And we have spoken to most of the off-licences in Ayr, Prestwick and Troon and most are very responsible.” Again on Friday police made large numbers of searches on Ayr beach. And one eyewitness said: “It was like being at a football match. “While it was reassuring to see the police presence, it’s a sad day when we need that on our beaches. “There was a van, several cars and squads of police on foot patrol - I have never seen that in Spain.” On Troon’s South Beach three boys, aged 16, 15 and 13 were arrested for breach of the peace. The 15-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy were then arrested for the illegal sex act. All those arrested had visited the area for the day. The trains - which have to be policed by British Transport Police which does not have enough staff - have again been proven to be the weak link.

New Magaluf sex video: 'British tourist' caught romping in broad daylight between parked cars

A shocking new video has emerged of a couple having sex in broad daylight apparently filmed on a Magaluf street. The couple's romp between two parked cars was captured on film by someone recording them through a window. The footage is too shocking to broadcast but during their two-minute encounter they are failed to be put off by passing cars. The nationality of the copulating couple is unknown, but the title of the video describes a "British Tourist". It is not clear how old they are, but they appear to be in their 30s. When he has finished he kneels on the ground as the woman slowly gets to her feet and re-arranges her mini-skirt before he passes her a tissue.

Teenage couple aged 14 and 15 arrested for performing sex act on beach just yards from families - Mirror Online

A mother plays happily in the sand with her young son - both oblivious to the sex and yobbish antics around them. Astonishingly a 15-year-old girl performed a sex act on a boy aged just 14 as they frolicked in shallow water at Troon’s South Beach. Other hate-filled youths abused police as they tried to assist a teenage girl sprawled incapable on the sand. And as both Troon and Ayr were plunged into Costa del Scumbag mode once again, decent visitors and residents have had enough. The ghastly goings on have left folk furious - and prompted police into their biggest zero tolerance operation ever. Senior officers have masterminded plans to crack down on the drunken louts - and used stop and search powers 300 times on Troon beach last week. Some youths tried to bury their cheap vodka and tonic wine under the hot sands as police took away drink. Inspector Sean Mangan praised his officers for cracking down on the marauding mobs who spill off packed trains from Glasgow and Paisley. It should have been a quiet Wednesday, but with a forecast for hot weather it triggered an avalanche of sun and drink-seeking teenagers. Insp Mangan said: “It does not just happen at the weekend - as soon as the schools and colleges stop it can happen any day. “We seized and destroyed all drink from both under-agers and those in their company we suspected of supplying it. “And we have spoken to most of the off-licences in Ayr, Prestwick and Troon and most are very responsible.” Again on Friday police made large numbers of searches on Ayr beach.

London gangs are drawing up and disseminating lists of teenage girls whom they consider to be legitimate rape targets, as sexual violence is increasingly used to spread fear and antagonise rival groups

The so-called sket lists (sket is street slang for "sluts") have, according to youth workers, prompted attacks so brazen that girls have been dragged from school buses and sexually assaulted. Police and charities say they have recorded an increase in the use of sexual violence by gangs, including incidents of revenge rape, where the sisters and girlfriends of rival gang members are targeted. Claire Hubberstey, interim chief executive of Safer London Foundation, a charity working with young people to reduce crime, warns that gangs are using sexual violence in the same way that they use dangerous dogs to parade their masculinity.

Scotland Yard has confirmed that sexual violence against women by gangs is now "at the top of our agenda" following initiatives that have seen gun crime fall by 17% and knife crime offences by 11.5%. Det Supt Tim Champion of the Metropolitan police's Operation Trident gang crime command, said: "The first thing we had to do is stop people killing each other. The focus now clearly is on women. It's as prevalent as carrying a knife or a gun – raping a girl in a gang." Hubberstey said gang members were taking advantage of low conviction rates for rape, viewing sexual violence as a less-risky means to inflict pain on rivals or spread fear than carrying a weapon. "Criminals are clever, they know if they are caught carrying weapons they face a lengthy sentence; it's risky carrying a gun. The use of sexual violence is the same sort of thing as having a dangerous dog; it creates fear, it's non-traceable, and they are also taking advantage of low rape conviction rates even when there are witnesses," she said.    The emergence of "sket lists" of young women considered eligible for attack is, say frontline youth workers, indicative of how gangs perceive that they can rape with near impunity. "They put the names of young women on a list and circulate through BBM [BlackBerry Messenger]. These women become active targets on the way home from school or wherever. They are legitimate targets to be raped and sexually assaulted if their name appears on a sket list," said Hubberstey. Those appearing on sket lists were sometimes teenagers who had been secretly filmed engaging in a sexual act by a gang who then threatened to upload the footage on to social media if she refused further sexual demands. Hubberstey described such blackmail as fairly common, and Champion described it as an effective controlling mechanism.

Carlene Firmin, head of MsUnderstood Partnership, which aims to address youth sexual inequality, said that young women connected to gangs were viewed as "currency" by rival outfits and attacked accordingly, even if such acts occasionally did not have the impact they wanted. "Sometimes they [a gang] think it will have a really detrimental effect but actually the boys are not bothered, usually it's about punishing girls directly rather than boys by proxy. "The punishment of young women occurred more often when they were perceived to have lied or, say, were arrested and the drugs they were holding for other people were confiscated," said Firmin. Hubberstey added: "They target cousins, girlfriends, siblings, we see a lot of that." Her charity had found some girls being offered to rival gangs to bolster allegiances or foster a truce. "They say, 'Here's some young women to do whatever you want,' we have lots of examples of that, really brazen activity and indicative of a lack of fear." Figures from the Safer London Foundation reveal that more than 500 young women were victims of gang-related sexual violence in the past year, a figure Hubberstey describes as just the "tip of the iceberg".

Scotland Yard's latest intelligence identifies 3,495 gang members in 224 gangs in London, although just 40 were found to be female. The Metropolitan police is currently mapping the problem in an attempt to ascertain the scale of the issue and identify "hotspots" of abuse. Firmin said they were identifying girls as young as 11, a vulnerable age due to the transition from primary to secondary school and the pressure to fit in and make friends, as potentially vulnerable.

Magaluf puts 50-person limit on pub crawls

The local mayor announced the new legislation today after a video surfaced last week showing sex acts being performed by a young British holidaymaker at a club night called Carnage. The resort’s reputation has been steadily deteriorating for years, but recent revelations about bars and clubs where tourists are encouraged to get drunk and engage in sexual behaviour in public proved the tipping point. Manuel Onieva, the Mayor of Calvia, a region including Magaluf, said the new law was an expression of his “total rejection and anger at the activities which were carried out in a video which is currently on the social media circuit.” In an attempt to clean up seedy bar crawls, any company wanting to operate one in the area will now need to apply for a licence through the town hall. In order to be granted a licence they will have to “prove their responsibility and show that they have the appropriate civil insurances in place,” the mayor said.

El Divino nightclub, Belfast: Picture of clubbers having sex in car park posted on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook sparks outrage

A picture of two female clubbers appearing to have sex with two men in a car park outside a nightclub has sparked outrage online. The image has been shared on thousands of social media accounts after being taken outside El Divino in Belfast after a student night last Thursday. It shows the two scantily-clad women on top of the men, with other revellers milling in the background, in scenes reminiscent of the recent video of a clubber giving oral sex to men in return for a drink in Magaluf.

Child abuse image investigation leads to 660 arrests

More than 650 suspected paedophiles have been arrested as part of a six-month operation targeting people accessing child abuse images online. The National Crime Agency (NCA) said the 660 arrested included doctors, teachers, scout leaders, care workers and former police officers. More than 400 children have been protected as a result, the agency said. Arrests were made across the UK and the majority of those held had no previous contact with police. The NCA said 39 of those arrested are registered sex offenders. Charges already brought range from possessing indecent images of children to serious sexual assault. The NCA stressed that none of those arrested is a serving or former MP or member of the government.

Dale Cregan has joined the small group of prisoners whose crimes are deemed so appalling they will spend the rest of their lives behind bars.

The 30-year-old today received a whole life sentence for the murder of killing of policewomen Nicola Hughes and Fiona Bone, and father and son David and Mark Short. According to Ministry of Justice figures, today's sentencing takes the number of prisoners for whom life means life to 49 – the most recent of which is Mark Bridger, who killed five-year-old April Jones. Many of those on the whole life tariff list committed crimes so shocking that their names remain etched on the public memory decades later. Notorious cases include Moors Murderer Ian Brady, who tortured and murdered children along with accomplice Myra Hindley, as well as murderer and robber Donald Neilson, “The Black Panther”, who shot and killed three sub-postmasters. In 2008 club bouncer Levi Bellfield was told he would die in prison for murdering two young women and trying to murder a third. In the same month, Steve Wright was also given a “whole life” term for the murders of five prostitutes in Ipswich, as he was told his “targeted campaign of murder” warranted the harshest punishment available to the judge. The only woman on the list is Rose West, who was convicted in 1995. A killing spree with husband Fred saw 10 young women murdered - eight within a two-year period. Soham murderer Ian Huntley is not on the whole life tariff list. He is serving a 40-year minimum term. Huntley was convicted of murdering 10-year-olds Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman in 2003. And earlier this year Stuart Hazell, who finally admitted killing schoolgirl Tia Sharp and hiding her body in the loft of the home he shared with her grandmother, was also given a 38-year minimum term, rather than a whole life tariff. The issue of whether “life means life” remains a contentious one. Killer Jeremy Bamber, convicted of killing his adoptive parents, sister and her two young children in 1985, is battling, along with two other murderers, against their “whole-life” jail terms, appealing to judges in Europe to rule that it breaches their human rights. In 2011 the European Court of Human Rights backed the UK, ruling it was not “grossly disproportionate” for the country's notorious criminals to be imprisoned indefinitely. In a separate case in November, the London Court of Appeal upheld the principle that whole life sentences do not violate human rights as long as jail without possibility of release is “reserved for the few exceptionally serious offences”. Lawyers for Bamber; Douglas Vinter, convicted of stabbing his wife in February 2008, having already served nine years for stabbing to death a work colleague in 1996; and Peter Moore, convicted of killing four gay men in 1995, have appealed to the 17-judge Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights, calling for a definitive ruling that whole life jail amounts to “inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment” banned by the European Human Rights Convention. A decision has not yet been announced.

What do the new airport security measures mean for you?

Travellers are being advised to power up electronic devices in hand luggage as part of new security measures introduced at UK airports.

The move comes as the US stepped up its airport security, although the Department for Transport (DfT) said there was "no change to the UK threat level, which remains at substantial" - the third of five possible threat levels. So what has changed and what will it mean for passengers? What are the new restrictions on charging devices in your hand luggage? Passengers passing through airport security will have to prove their electronic devices are powered up by switching them on.

What gadgets are included? As well as mobile phones and laptops, the DfT guidance includes devices such as electrical shavers, hair-straighteners and cameras or any other camera equipment. No complete list has been provided but the general advice applies anything "with a battery", so other items such as handheld games consoles and e-readers could also be checked. What will happen if my device cannot be switched on? The government guidelines say passengers carrying devices which they cannot switch on "face not being allowed to bring the device onto the aircraft". Passengers would then have to choose between charging the device if possible, leaving it behind (see below) or not getting on their flight. What will happen if I leave an electronic device? Some airlines have outlined ways customers can get their devices back. British Airways said passengers could either keep devices at airports for customers to collect or have them forwarded to another address, at the airline's expense.

Virgin Atlantic has said likewise. EasyJet said it was seeking clarification from the government on the new regulations and had not, so far, issued any specific instructions to passengers. Can I charge my device at the airport? To avoid the risk of missing your flight or having your device taken away, make sure it is fully charged and check that the airport you are travelling from has a charging point. If for any reason you have a device with a flat battery, charging points are available near security in most airports - so if you have enough time before your flight you should be able to charge it up.

LIVING IN A FASCIST STATE: Mentally ill people need to be helped, not hounded by the work Roaches

LIVING IN A FASCIST STATE: Mentally ill people need to be helped, not hounded

 

Neglect of the mentally ill is bad enough, but now consider how the Department for Work and Pensions deliberately torments them. I just met a jobcentre manager. It had to be in secret, in a Midlands hotel, several train stops away from where she works. She told me how the sick are treated and what harsh targets she is under to push them off benefits. A high proportion on employment and support allowance have mental illnesses or learning difficulties. The department denies there are targets, but she showed me a printed sheet of what are called "spinning plates", red for missed, green for hit. They just missed their 50.5% target for "off flows", getting people off ESA. They have been told to "disrupt and upset" them – in other words, bullying. That's officially described, in Orwellian fashion, as "offering further support". As all ESA claimants approach the target deadline of 65 weeks on benefits – advisers are told to report them all to the fraud department for maximum pressure. In this manager's area 16% are "sanctioned" or cut off benefits.

Of course it's not written down anywhere, but it's in the development plans of individual advisers or "work coaches". Managers repeatedly question them on why more people haven't been sanctioned. Letters are sent to the vulnerable who don't legally have to come in, but in such ambiguous wording that they look like an order to attend. Tricks are played: those ending their contributory entitlement to a year on ESA need to fill in a form for income-based ESA. But jobcentres are forbidden to stock those forms. These ill people's benefits are suddenly stopped without explanation: if they call, they're told to collect a form from the jobcentre, which doesn't stock them either. If someone calls to query an appointment they are told they will be sanctioned if they don't turn up, whatever. She said: "The DWP's hope is they won't pursue the claim."

Good advisers genuinely try to help the mentally ill left marooned on sickness benefit for years. The manager spoke of a woman with acute agoraphobia who hadn't left home for 20 years: "With tiny steps, we were getting her out, helping her see how her life could be better – a long process." But here's another perversity: if someone passes the 65-week deadline, they are abandoned. All further help is a dead loss to "spinning plates" success rates. That woman was sent back to her life of isolation: she certainly wasn't referred for CBT. For all this bullying, the work programme finds few jobs for those on ESA.

Failing to treat the mentally ill is bad enough, but this is maltreatment. There has been much outrage about lack of kindness and care in hospitals. Neglect of mental patients is every bit as bad, but deliberate cruelty by the DWP defies any concern for the wellbeing for the most vulnerable, let alone "parity of esteem".

Psychonauts explore unknown world of legal highs – with themselves as lab rats

A man smokes the now-illegal drug Spice. Synthetic cannabis is a big problem, says one expert: 'It is massively stronger than cannabis or skunk.' Photograph: Alicia Canter Daniel, until recently, was a researcher, using his bedroom as a laboratory. His apparatus was his own brain. He bought chemical compounds labelled "not for human use" on the internet, ingested them and waited to see whether he was headed for heaven or hell. At times he wondered if he was going to die. He was experimenting with novel psychoactive substances – so-called legal highs. These are usually based on banned drugs, such as MDMA or ecstasy, and cannabis. Variations in the formula enable them to be sold legally, but nobody can be sure what effect they are going to have on the user's mind or body – and the doctors dealing with the casualties in A&E have no idea what the substance is that has done the damage or how to treat the patient in distress before them. Daniel, 23, who lives in London, had some bad experiences. He bought some methoxphenidine. "I believe I took too much – I overdosed on that," he said. He had combined it with another "research chemical" similar to the benzodiazepines such as Valium.

Teens charged over David Headlam stabbing

Two teenagers have been charged after an 18-year-old man was stabbed to death in north-west London. David Headlam, from Harlesden, was found with stab wounds in Drayton Road, Harlesden, in the early hours of 29 June. T-shai Ennis, 18, of Slough, and a 17-year-old male from Wembley have been charged with murder. They will appear before Westminster Magistrates' Court. A 19-year-old man from Wembley has also been arrested and is in police custody.

David Cameron Demands Answers Over Westminster Paedophile Ring 'Missing' Dossier

David Cameron has ordered an inquiry to "find all the answers" into what happened to a dossier on abuse by an alleged paedophile ring within Westminster in the 1980s, as it is alleged sitting parliamentarians are being investigated. The prime minister has ordered the fresh review by the most senior official at the Home Office into the dossier, which was handed to the then home secretary, Leon (now Lord) Brittan by the Conservative MP Geoffrey Dickens in 1983 but has disappeared. The news follows claims that a Tory MP was caught with indecent images of young children by a customs officer at around this time but was not pursued by police. The Director of Public Prosecutions has been urged to look into this.

admits guilt after Lancashire police find his ridiculous 'crime checklist' note

A mugger has pleaded guilty to robbery after the police found a checklist outlining his plan in his house, including to ‘watch out for CCTV’ and ‘wear gloves’. Bumbling Zach Jackson, 19, will be wishing he just made a mental note after his list found its way into officers’ hands and contained other such words of wisdom as ‘warm up before doing it’. Jackson assaulted his victim, also 19, and stole her phone when she was returning home from a night out with friends in Blackpool. His victim’s father used her phone signal to track its location before informing the police who, while arresting Jackson, found his step-by-step guide to the crime. Preston Crown Court was told that Jackson was hiding in a doorway pretending to talk on a phone and attacked the victim when she asked him for a cigarette.

10 current and former politicians are on a list of alleged child abusers held by police investigating claims of a Westminster paedophile ring.

10 current and former politicians are on a list of alleged child abusers held by police investigating claims of a Westminster paedophile ring. MPs or peers from all three main political parties are on the list, which includes former ministers and household names. Several, including Cyril Smith and Sir Peter Morrison, are no longer alive, but others are still active in Parliament. The existence of the list was disclosed by Peter McKelvie, the whistleblower whose claims prompted Operation Fernbridge, the Scotland Yard investigation into allegations of a paedophile network with links to Downing Street. Mr McKelvie, a retired child protection team manager who has spent more than 20 years compiling evidence of alleged abuse by authority figures, said he believed there was enough evidence to arrest at least one senior politician.

Rolf Harris Backlash in native Australia

Australia is racing to distance itself from Rolf Harris as the shamed Perth-born entertainer starts a jail term for abusing young girls. The memory of the "Boy from Bassendean" - a suburb in the Western Australian state capital - is being erased by the local council. He has gone from favourite son to outcast by a simple show of hands at a council meeting. Harris's artworks will be taken down from its chambers and his status as a freeman has been rescinded, while a plaque outside his childhood home was stolen before the local authority could remove it. "We simply cannot tolerate the horrendous crimes for which he's been convicted," Bassendean Mayor John Gangell told ABC radio. And the backlash is spreading.

Magaluf video shows 'British' girl performing sex acts on more than 20 men for free drink

A video of a tourist - believed to be a British girl - performing sex acts on more than 20 men in return for a free drink in Magaluf has sparked outrage in Spain. The horrifying footage - which lasts just over two and half minutes - shows the young blonde girl performing sex acts on men as they stand on a dancefloor. Egged on by the person filming on a mobile phone, the girl moves from one man to another as music blares in the background. The clip ends as the music stops and a DJ's voice can be heard.
