  • Murder inquiry launched in Fleckney

    Police have launched a murder inquiry in Fleckney, near Market Harborough.

    It follows the discovery yesterday morning (Sunday 24 September) of the body of an elderly woman at a bungalow in Elizabeth Road.

    A post mortem carried out on the woman’s body last night proved inconclusive and although the results of further medical tests are awaited, the circumstances of the scene have led police to treat her death, at this stage, as a murder inquiry.

    Detective Chief Inspector David Swift-Rollinson, who is leading the inquiry, said he believed the woman died at some point during Saturday evening or in the early hours of yesterday morning.

    He said: “At this stage the woman’s death is unexplained; but there are signs of a disturbance in her bungalow which may be linked to her death.

    “Elizabeth Road is a quiet cul-de-sac and house to house enquiries are being conducted with the woman’s neighbours to see if they saw or heard anything.

    “And among many other active lines of enquiry, we are conducting a forensic search of her bungalow today.

    “I need to hear from anyone who may have been in or near Elizabeth Road on Saturday night or Sunday morning and who may have seen or heard something they thought was suspicious and out of character. It may have been a stranger they didn’t recognise or someone they knew but who appeared to be acting strangely; it may have been a car that is not normally parked in the area, or a vehicle seen leaving the area at speed.

    “Elizabeth Road is located near to an industrial estate on Saddington Road and we know that lorry drivers visiting the estate often park up overnight. We are keen to speak to anyone who may have parked up in this particular area and saw anything suspicious.

    “It’s also likely that the person who committed this offence may well be highly agitated and behaving out of character. Do you know someone who might have come home overnight on Saturday / Sunday acting unusually or extremely anxious for no apparent known reason? If you have suspicions they may be linked to this incident, please contact us.

    “We are in the process of trying to contact the woman’s next of kin. Until that has been done I am unable to name her publicly, but I believe she was a woman in her 70s.”

    Anyone with any information that may assist the Police is asked to ring 101 quoting incident 233 of 24 September. Anyone with information who would rather not speak directly to the police can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111. They will not be asked to give their personal details.

  • Fallen officers remembered in Cardiff ceremony

    Leicestershire Police joined colleagues from across the UK at a service yesterday (Sunday 24 September) for National Police Memorial Day, which honours officers who have given their lives in the line of duty.

    The Memorial Day takes place on the nearest Sunday to St Michael’s Day (September 29) each year, as he is the Patron Saint of Police Officers.

    This year, the service was held at St David's Hall in Cardiff and brought together colleagues, family and friends from across the police service in remembrance of the more than 4,400 officers who have died while serving their communities.

    Assistant Chief Constable Julia Debenham, who joined colleagues at the service, said: “The National Police Memorial Day gives us a chance to stop and reflect on those who lost their lives while protecting others.

    “It is important for us to support the families who have sadly lost their loved ones. It was an emotional day, but one filled with pride.”

    Sergeant Sanjay Chauhan of the Spinney Hills Neighbourhood Team represented Leicestershire Police Federation at the service. He said: “Yesterday was an opportunity for us all to remember our fallen colleagues and those who died serving our community. I feel honoured and privileged to have attended the ceremony on behalf of Leicestershire Police Federation.”

    Lord Willy Bach, Leicestershire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, said: “Police officers protect us, support us and help us when we are most vulnerable. As we’ve seen so starkly this year, we rely on their courage when things go wrong and they risk their own lives in the line of duty. National Police Memorial day is particularly poignant for the families, friends and colleagues of those who paid the highest price for their bravery and my thoughts are with them all.”

    You can find more information on the annual celebration on the National Police Memorial Day website.

  • Man arrested for Loughborough assault released

    A 29-year-old man who was arrested after a person was found seriously injured at a property in Loughborough has been released from custody.

    Police were called to Russell Street just after 9am yesterday (Sunday 24 September) following reports of a disturbance at an address in the street.

    Witnesses had reported seeing two men going into the address and then leaving on foot.

    On arrival officers found a 17-year-old with serious leg injuries. He was taken to hospital where he remains in a stable condition.

    The 29-year-old man who was arrested in connection with the incident and has been released from custody pending an investigation.

    A cordon was initially put in place in Russell Street while enquiries were conducted at the scene. This has since been removed.

    If you have any information about the incident, or were in the area at round 9am today and saw two men running away from the street, call 101 quoting incident 253 of 24 September.

  • Eighty officers now Taser trained

    Eighty officers from response and local policing are now carrying a Conductive Electrical Device (commonly known as Tasers) in addition to their colleagues in the East Midlands Operational Support Service (EMOpSS).

    The move, which was announced in November 2016, is intended to increase public safety and the safety of police officers. Another seventy officers are in the process of being trained which will bring the total number of Specially Trained Officers (STOs) to 150.

    The officers are spread across the force area. Previously, the Taser capability available to Leicestershire Police was only provided by EMOpSS officers who provide specialist police services to the communities of Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire.

    Assistant Chief Constable Rob Nixon, said; “This Taser uplift means officers will be better equipped to protect the public and themselves. Taser reduces the need for physical contact and we know that the mere presence of a Taser is often enough to defuse an angry or dangerous situation and stop it escalating further.

    “By training and equipping an additional 150 Leicestershire officers with CED capability we’re removing the pressure from our firearms officers and ensuring that we can respond more quickly and effectively with the appropriate resources. Our use of Taser is closely scrutinised by the Home Office to ensure it is used correctly and in the right circumstances.”

  • Cosby man sentenced after killing his neighbour

    A man has sentenced today after killing his 84-year-old neighbour at an address in Cosby this year.

    Peter Bunyan, 53, of Brooklands Road, Cosby pleaded guilty to manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility at a hearing at Derby Crown Court on Friday 4 August.

    He was sentenced today (Wednesday 20 September) at Leicester Crown Court and given an indefinite hospital order under the Mental Health Act.

    Police were called on the morning of Thursday 23 February to a report from a neighbour who was witnessing Bunyan kicking down Brian Robson’s front door.

    Officers arrived at the address to find Brian seriously injured in the hall. Attempts were made to revive him but he died at the scene.

    Bunyan had returned to his house next door and was arrested from that address.

    Mr Robson’s children have paid tribute to their “wonderful, popular, kind and generous” father.

    Kevin Robson and Pauline Robson released a joint statement following the sentencing.

    They said: “Our father was born in 1932 in Newcastle and worked in the Merchant Navy before training as a draughtsman and starting to work in the ship yards in the North East. In 1961 he got a job as an Electrical Draughtsman at GEC in Whetstone and decided to move his family to Leicester. During the early years the family travelled back to Newcastle a couple of times a year to visit relatives.

    “Our father was a keen gardener and his favourite pastime was watching football and supported his favourite team being Newcastle United. During the past years he enjoyed his holidays travelling to many different countries.

    “Our father was a wonderful, popular, kind and generous man.

    “Last year he suffered poor health and had a long stay in hospital but with great strength and determination he pulled through and returned home.

    “Losing him has left us devastated and feeling a deep sense of loss and grief. We will miss him forever.”

  • Victims reunited with their stolen tools

    A property viewing event at the weekend saw owners of stolen tools being reunited with their items.

    More than 60 people attended the event at force headquarters on Saturday and Sunday (16-17 September) and four people were reunited with their tools.

    Eighteen people identified items but were not able to confirm ownership, enquiries are ongoing to resolve the issue.

    More than 300 stolen power tools were recovered from addresses in the Golf Course Lane and Evelyn Drive area of Leicester on Thursday 6 July.

    Power drills, bolt croppers, generators and jet washers were amongst some of the items recovered.

    Detective Chief Inspector Chris Baker from the neighbourhood investigations team, said: “We had a great response to the property viewing event and the album of photographs we published on our force Facebook page.

    “We still have large amount of tools which need to be reunited with their rightful owners. We would encourage people to look through the images online and contact us if they have been a victim of tool theft and believe we may have their items.

    “In the last four months we have seen an increase in the number of thefts from van incidents reported to us, tools have been stolen costing victims thousands of pounds to replace. These incidents have a knock-on effect on people’s livelihoods and we take these crimes extremely seriously.

    “We currently have an operation ongoing to educate people on how they can reduce their chances of being a victim, locate those responsible for such crimes and to ensure people report if they have been a victim.

    “In July we arrested eight people on suspicion of theft offences, they were released from custody pending further investigation.

    “We would ask people think about the security of their valuables and ensure their vehicles are locked and parked in a way which would make access for potential thieves difficult.

    “We’d like to stress the importance of keeping vehicles and contents secure, whether you park them at home or in a public place, we’re running a number of initiatives to reduce vehicle crime, including additional officers patrolling hotspots and posting leaflets in public areas, such as local hotels.”

    Anyone who wishes to get in touch to claim their stolen items is asked to call 101, quoting 417 of 7 September.

  • 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.
