  • Statement from family of Brendan Mason

    Brendan’s family have released the following statement:

    “Shocked and devastated is an understatement on how we felt when we had the police at our house telling us that they have recovered a body and they believed it to be Brendan.

    “It is not right how two evil people can do such a horrific thing and leave a massive hole in our lives that will never be filled again. Seven months on and there’s never going to be a day in our lives where we are going get closure.

    “Brendan was a lovely young man and he was so happy. He had numerous learning difficulties and very poor vision. Even though Brendan had numerous learning difficulties and was very easily led by others, he always knew right from wrong.

    “The police have been a big part of our life for the past seven months; they have been amazing, but there will never be closure for us.”

    Robert & Sarah Chambers, Brendan's uncle and aunt

    Officers are appealing for information after a serious road traffic collision on the A50.

    We were called at around 2am on Saturday 18 February to the A50 Groby Road city bound close to Combe Close after a report of a collision.

    It involved a white Ford Fiesta and two road maintenance vehicles which were parked and unattended at the time.

    The driver of the vehicle sustained minor injuries and received treatment at the Leicester Royal Infirmary.

    A 28-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of driving offences and has been released on police bail pending further enquiries.

    Did you see the vehicle prior to the collision? Did you see the collision or the events leading up to it?

    Anyone with information is asked to contact us on 101 quoting incident 84 of 18 February.

  • Three charged in connection with Middleton Street incident

    Three teenagers have been charged in connection with a serious assault in Middleton Street, Leicester.

    A 14-year-old boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been charged with attempted murder, possession of an offensive weapon and robbery. Two other boys, aged 15 and 13, have been charged with robbery.

    The charges follow an incident which happened during the early hours of Friday morning (17 February 2017) and left a 27-year-old man with serious injuries. He remains in hospital in a stable condition.

    The 14-year-old is due to appear at Leicester Magistrates’ Court on Monday (20 February). The two other boys, who also can’t be named for legal reasons, will appear at the same court on 10 March 2017.

    Two girls aged 14 and 13, who were also arrested in connection with the incident, have been released with no further action. A second 14-year-old girl remains on bail pending further enquiries.

  • Man charged with Albion Street disorder

    The 22-year-old from London died after he sustained a fatal stab wound during an incident in Albion Street on the morning of Saturday 11 February.

    Jason Danquah was arrested last night in connection with the Albion Street incident and has today (Saturday 18 February) been charged with violent disorder.

    The 19-year-old, of Tudor Road, Leicester, is due to appear at Leicester Magistrates’ Court on Monday (20 February).

  • Two men plead guilty to Brendan Mason murder

    Two men have pleaded guilty to murdering 23-year-old Brendan Mason in July last year.

    Keith Lowe, 22, pleaded guilty to murder today (Friday 17 February) during a trial at Leicester Crown Court which started on Monday 13 February. He had initially pleaded not guilty to the offence.

    Joshua Hack, 21, pleaded guilty to the same charge at an earlier hearing.

    Brendan was found in Abbey Park, Leicester, on the morning of 5 July, with serious injuries. He died later that day in hospital as a result of severe head injuries.

    He was found to have 99 injuries spread across his whole body – evidence that he was brutally beaten – along with defensive-type wounds to his hands.

    Hack, of St Helen’s Drive, Leicester, and Lowe, of Rockingham Close, also in the city, were arrested a couple of days later on 7 July after extensive police enquiries.

    Extensive phone work throughout the investigation showed that the three were friends. At 1.22am, Hack called Brendan and the pair spoke for 16 minutes – it’s believed that this conversation involved Brendan being lured to the park.

    Examination of messages exchanged between the two defendants shows that there was a clear plan to harm Brendan – a plan they executed to the extreme.

    CCTV shows that at 1.39am all three enter Abbey Park. Brendan’s phone makes no more calls or sends any text messages after this time.

    After the attack, Brendan was stripped of his clothes in an effort to get rid of any potential evidence. The pair also attempted to wash him in the pond in the park.

    His clothes were put inside his own rucksack and they threw it into the river. It was recovered the following day after CCTV enquiries found the pair cycling – with Brendan’s rucksack, which he had with him when he was last seen – on the canal path towards the National Space Centre.

    Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Mick Graham, led the investigation. He said: “Brendan was known to the defendants and considered them as friends, and they lured him to the park with the full intention of hurting him.

    “Brendan was subjected to a vicious, sustained attack which was filmed by his attackers on their phones. He was left naked and alone in the park having been brutally beaten.

    “When it was clear they had seriously harmed him, they took steps to cover their tracks, disposing of his clothes and washing him to get rid of any evidence.

    “The investigation was lengthy, with extensive CCTV trawls carried out across the city, water being drained from the pond in the search for evidence, along with detailed searches of the footpaths leading from Abbey Park towards the space centre.

    “All those involved with this investigation were determined to bring those responsible to justice. I hope the fact that the defendants have admitted their involvement in Brendan’s murder will bring some small comfort to his family.”

    Hack and Lowe will be sentenced on Monday 20 February at Leicester Crown Court.

  • Albion Street murder - man charged

    A 20-year-old man has been charged with murder following the death of a man in Albion Street, Leicester.

    Sulaiman Sillah, of Bateman Road, Leicester, has been charged with the murder of Lauric Lebato, who died during the early hours of Saturday 11 February.

    Sillah was also charged with violent disorder and possession of an offensive weapon relating to Saturday 11 February and possession of an offensive weapon relating to Tuesday 14 February.

    He will appear at Leicester Magistrates Court today (Friday 17 February).

    Two other men, aged 19 and 20, who were arrested at the same time as Sillah, have been released on police bail for possession of an offensive weapon. They have been released with no further action for violent disorder.

  • So we are on way way out of The European Union

    The option to Vote has now driven us out of The Union.

    We now have to take the advantage and not carry on blaming ourselves or others.It was a shock the way it went BUT GET OVER IT.

    The European Union is an organisation that tries to represent Europe.
    It is now nervous that a country has dared to take control of themselves.

    It will not be easy to deal with them because they want us to fail.
    We will not fail and maybe others will split away.That is their biggest fear.

    Northern Ireland now needs to be used as a trade Area to negotiate with Europeans direct.Taking advantage of its doorstep location with Southern Ireland. The UK needs to lower corporation rates to be the same as Ireland.This will be an advantage for all business.

    We need to create a small coordinating and marketing organisation and use CBI and Group Trading organisations to promote Great Britain.The commonwealth needs to be a bigger part of our trade. Our main objective must be to trade globally.
    The social legislation and general laws need to be rewritten and but back into British Law. Maybe a 5 year project.There is going to be lots to sort. In the meantime we can still use Modified European Law and call it that.

    For Info
