Cars parking on grass verges in Norreys Drive, Maidenhead., 19th May

Fix My Street Maidenhead - Sat, 05/19/2018 - 20:07
More and more cars are frequently parking on grass verges, damaging them, in Norreys Drive, Maidenhead. Usually after 7pm in the evenings and weekends. On Both sides of the road where small barriers were put up a few years ago to stop this happening. This is dangerous to pedestrians, a car came through the hedge, across the footpath and nearly hit someone walking their dog. The car owner said he had permission to use the verge as a car park, by Maidenhead Council. This is dangerous as there are no markings or signs to say it is to be used as a car par.It could be used as a car park, however, it should have signs up saying so. The area is becoming very shabby and what was the point of putting up the barriers? The area in questions is from corner of Fane way down to Suffolk Road. Mainly on opposite side to Smith Kline Factory.

Appeal following Leicester assault

Leicestershire Police News Feed - Sat, 05/19/2018 - 19:47

Police are investigating a report of an assault in the Jarrom Street area of Leicester earlier today.

At around 9.30am this morning (19 May) the 20-year-old victim was approached by a man in the street at Jarrom Court before the man, described as black, in his early 20’s and wearing a dark coloured hooded top with the hood up, threw a liquid in his face and fled the scene.

The victim is currently at hospital receiving medical treatment for serious injuries. His injuries are not deemed to be life threatening.

Detective Sergeant Esther Scott, from the Complex Investigation team, said: “Enquiries are ongoing to establish what the substance is but what we do know is that it has left the victim with a permanent injury.

“We need to locate the person responsible for this attack and are asking for the public’s help. The area in which it took place is not far from the city centre and the Leicester Royal Infirmary so it’s a well-used area.

“I am asking for anyone who witnessed the incident or has any information which assist our investigation to get in touch. Did you see someone matching this description acting suspiciously in the area before the incident? Did you see the direction the man took leaving the scene? Are you a taxi driver perhaps dropping a patient or visitor off at the hospital and have dashcam footage capturing something connected to this assault?

“If you think you can help us, please contact us, the information to you may not seem significant but could be important for our investigation.”

Anyone who has any information is asked to contact Detective Constable 2011 Chris Fox on 101 quoting 18*228372.
