  • Man sentenced for sexual assault on coach

    A 29-year-old man who sexually assaulted a woman as she slept on a coach has been sentenced to four years in prison for the offence.

    Admir Senaj sat next to the victim as they were travelling on a coach from London to Nottingham.

    The court heard how during the journey on 13 November last year, the 24-year-old victim fell asleep and was woken to find Senaj sexually assaulting her.

    Senaj appeared at Leicester Crown Court for a four day trial and was today (27 April) found guilty of assault by penetration and sentenced to four years in prison.

    He will also be on the Sex Offenders Register for life and has been given a five year Sexual Harm Prevention Order.

    Police were called to the scene after the victim raised the alarm with other passengers on the coach and the driver stopped close to junction 23 of the M1.

    At this point, Senaj fled the scene, running across the motorway carriageway where he was captured on dashcam by a driver on the motorway.

    To identify and locate the suspect, detectives trawled more than 20 hours of CCTV, carried out forensic examinations of items retrieved from the bus and conducted extensive enquiries across Leicestershire, Nottingham and London.

    Senaj was located and arrested at his home address of Alexandre Road, Barnet, London, on 6 December.

    The officer who led the investigation, DC Dan Robberts, said: “Senaj preyed on a young woman while she was in a vulnerable state and was brazen enough to do so surrounded by other people on a busy coach. He then fled the scene when he realised the police had been called.

    “More than 150 hours of police time went into finding out who this man was. The complex investigation took officers across the country in order to locate, arrest and bring him to justice for this horrendous crime. I hope the guilty verdict today will be some sort of closure for the victim.”

  • Dog owners urged to take care around livestock

    Leicestershire Police are urging dog owners to take responsibility for their animals and keep their dogs on a lead when around livestock.

    Sergeant Nick Woodrow, force lead for Rural Crime said: “Every year we get a number of reports of livestock worrying which can have serious effects on the animal including stress, injury, abortion and death.

    “It can also have a devastating impact on the owner with veterinary cost or loss of income, never mind the upset of seeing their animal suffer.”

    “To stop such incidents occurring, we are advising dog owners to keep their dogs on a lead and under control when walking through fields of livestock, and to always stick to the public rights of way.”

    Livestock worrying is a criminal offence and can result in a £1000 fine. The Animals Act entitles the owners of the livestock, the land owner, or those acting on their behalf, to shoot any dog if they believe it is the only reasonable way of stopping it worry livestock. The police must be notified with 48 hours if this action is taken.

    Sergeant Woodrow added: “Livestock worrying doesn’t just occur if a dog attacks a sheep, but can also include chasing livestock, or not being on a lead in a field or enclosure in which animals are kept. It is the owner’s responsibility to keep their dog under control. ”

    Although sheep are usually the target for livestock worrying, the law also covers cattle, goats, pigs, horses, donkeys, mules, chickens, turkeys, geese and ducks.

    Please report incidents of livestock worrying on 101.

  • 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.
