  • A6006 re-opened after fatal collision

    The A6006 in Asfordby, Leicestershire, has been re-opened after a fatal collision this morning (Monday 16 January).

    The collision was reported at 8am and involved a blue New Holland tractor and a cyclist. The cyclist, a man, sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

    The A6006 between the junction with Grimston and Asfordby village was closed while officers dealt with enquiries at the scene but it has since been re-opened.

    If you drove along the A6006, in this area during this morning and either witnessed the collision or saw the vehicles beforehand, then please get in touch.

    Anyone with any information is asked to contact DC 1761 Pete Davies on 101, quoting incident 109 of 16 January.

  • Did you witness a burglary in Thorpe End, Melton?

    An investigation has begun following a burglary at a museum in Melton.

    Officers were called to The Melton Carnegie Museum in Thorpe End at around 11.00pm on Saturday (14 January) following an alarm activation.

    It is believed that entry was gained through a sky light. Nothing appears to have been taken.

    Were you in the area at the time? Did you see anyone acting suspiciously around the time of the incident? Have you heard any rumours locally about who may have been responsible?

    If you have any information call 101, quoting incident number 17*19868.

    Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

  • Robbery in Elland Road, Leicester

    Officers are continuing to appeal for information after a robbery in Elland Road, Leicester.

    It happened shortly after 5pm yesterday (Thursday 12 January) when the driver of a G4S security van was approached by a group of suspects who took sealed packages.

    No one was injured in the incident. The sealed packages contained a quantity of jewellery.

    The suspects made off from the scene down Wembley Road and then right onto Ratby Road, before dumping their white Vauxhall transit type van in Woodlands Lane, Kirby Muxloe. It is believed they were followed by a medium sized white car, which was also involved in the robbery.

    We want to hear from people who were in the area of Woodlands Lane between 4pm and 5.30pm.

    Detective Sergeant Dave Speight, who is investigating the incident said: “We have had a good response from the public so far and would continue to urge people to come forward.

    "We believe someone would have been waiting in Woodlands Lane for the suspects to arrive. Did you see anyone loitering? Did you see any vehicles parked up which are not normally there? Did anything seem unusual?

    “Did you see the white Vauxhall transit type van and white car arrive together? Do you know where they went next?

    “We also want to hear from people who work in the Elland Road and Wembley Road area. The incident happened at around the time people would have been finishing work so it is possible there are quite few witnesses who may have seen the white van and white car drive past them at speed driven past who we have no yet spoken to.

    “Small details may help us with our investigation. Please call 101 and quote incident 430 of January 12.”

    Head of Operational Risk, for G4S cash business in the UK, Gareth Skinner, said: "One of our crew members was involved in a robbery on the evening of Thursday 12 January on customer premises in the Leicester area.

    "While our colleague is shaken, he is unhurt and we are supporting him and his family.

    "We are working closely with Leicestershire Police and I would urge anyone who may have been nearby and seen anything suspicious to get in touch with the police or dial 101 so that those responsible can be brought to justice.”

  • 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
