Drink drivers escaping prosecution as officers have to drive more than an

Rural areas have been the hardest hit with officers having to travel long distances often down country roads.Over the same period, Home Office data shows that the number of arrests has fallen from more than 1.3million in 2009/10 to almost 700,000 in 2017/18. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Officers warn that cuts to police numbers combined with cuts to resources means that if they are forced to make a several hour round trip then there are no bobbies are left on the beat.Clive Knight, Custody Lead for the Police Federation of England and Wales, said: “It is hard to ignore the knock-on effect the sale of police stations and closures of custody suites has had on policing as a whole.”He said that the figures show it is a “particular problem” in rural areas where officers are “tied up for hours” as they have to drive for miles, process the detainee and then complete the paperwork.Mr Knight added: “Even more concerning is in the case of drink-drivers it may also mean offenders ultimately escaping conviction entirely because of the length of time that has passed between the roadside breath test and the evidential sample taken in custody.”In North Wales many towns are more than an hour to their nearest station, and if officers made an arrest in Aberdyfi they would have to travel more than 66 miles, a journey taking around 1 hour and 45 minutes, to the nearest custody suite in Caernarfon. Mr Knight added: “The new Prime Minister and his government must ensure that their commitment to increasing police resources extends, not just to boosting officer numbers, but to the policing infrastructure as well to ensure that this worrying situation is not allowed to worsen.”Superintendent Richie Green who is responsible for the Gwynedd South area for North Wales Police said that he recognisned that the distance presented a “challenge for my staff working in a rural locality” and it was “one familiar to many rural forces”. He said that they worked with neighbouring forces where appropriate.North Yorkshire said its facilities were “frequently reviewed” to ensure they were meeting demand and Government requirements.  Avon and Somerset said that officers working on outlying areas of their force now have enhanced vehicles, fitted with cages to transport prisoners to custody centres. In Aberdyfi locals say the lack of facilities is “a joke” whilst in neighbouring Tywyn, which has a huge influx of holiday makers during the summer months, residents say that so-called county lines drug dealing is a particular problem.Crime is in danger of getting out of control as the area’s two officers cannot cope, they claim. Gillian Roberts, 64, who runs a craft shop in the town, said: “It is fast becoming a serious problem. “We’ve got vulnerable young people being used to sell drugs here and the police no longer have the resources to deal with the issue.“If the nearest custody station is almost two hours away, how are they supposed to protect us?“It takes two officers to transport a suspect, so while they’re on the road to the station there’s no one left to police the town.“It’s no surprise that as a consequence crimes are going unpunished because officers may not want to travel those kind of distances. Instead, people committing crimes are often just getting a ticking-off. “There are some people here now who know they’ll get away with all sorts now because the police won’t be able or willing to drive them all that distance to have them dealt with.” Katherine Wilson, 73, said the perception that crime is going unpunished has also led to an increase in traffic offences.“We’re becoming a forgotten town,” she told the Telegraph.In North Yorkshire officers in some areas have to drive for an hour and a half to the nearest station whilst Northumbria has a number of towns more than an hour and a quarter from the cells and Avon and Somerset, Dorset, and Devon and Cornwall all have areas which are an hour or more.Inspector Andrew Berry, Chair of Devon & Cornwall Police Federation, warned last month that officers are now at the stage where they “dare not arrest anybody” as there will be no-one left to work the streets.He said that some officers were opting to drive suspects home rather than to the cells in order to save time.In many areas they can use another force’s cells if there are operational reasons to do so, but it is not done on a regular basis or simply because of the distance.  In line with Government guidance forces also have moved toward voluntary attendance where a suspect takes themselves to a police station to avoid an officer having to drive them. Drink drivers are getting away with breaking the law because police are having to drive them up to an hour and 45 minutes to the nearest custody cells, it has been warned.An investigation by the Daily Telegraph has found that officers across England and Wales routinely have to drive suspects for more than an hour before they can process their arrest after a third of all custody suites were closed down.As well as fears that drink drivers are escaping prosecution as they have sobered up on the journey to the station, it has been warned that officers are opting to drive suspects home or simply giving them a ticking off to save time.Those living furthest from stations say that they are “forgotten towns” where criminals can do as they please. The number of custody suites across the country has fallen by a third since 2010, from 277 to 180. Just three of the 43 police forces in England and Wales did not provide data from 2010.An analysis of the data, obtained using the Freedom of  Information Act, shows that there are more than 70 towns in England which are more than twenty miles from a police station. read more

La contribution à laudiovisuel public risque encore daugmenter

first_imgLa contribution à l’audiovisuel public risque encore d’augmenter !Depuis la semaine dernière, les opérateurs télécoms se plaignent contre un nouvel amendement qui devrait augmenter la facture des prélèvements, déjà salée, des services de télévision.Dans le cadre de la loi des Finances 2012, l’Assemblée nationale a adopté cet amendement qui permettra une révision du barème sur la taxe sur les distributeurs de services de télévision. Concernant les FAI (Fournisseurs d’Accès Internet), la facture s’élèverait déjà à 190 millions d’euros, comme en 2010, selon nos confrères de 01net. À lire aussiNumericable : des forfaits à prix bradés sur Vente privéePour les autres services, l’amendement ne donne aucune réelle précision quant aux sommes que devront verser les différents opérateurs. D’où la grogne de la Fédération Française des Télécoms (FFT) qui s’inquiète des excédents éventuels qu’une telle taxe engendrerait (le plafond de l’amendement étant de 229 millions d’euros, il est supposé que les excédents pourraient en fait dépasser rapidement les 300 millions). Il est important de noter que les premières victimes dans cette affaire ne seraient évidemment pas les opérateurs télécoms. En effet, pour faire face à une augmentation de la contribution à l’audiovisuel public, ces derniers auraient comme moyens d’augmenter leurs abonnements. C’est donc les consommateurs que nous sommes qui, encore une fois, devront payer l’addition.  Le 26 octobre 2011 à 16:20 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Nintendo May Release an SNES Classic Edition This Year

first_img One of the most sought-after gaming items from last year was Nintendo’s NES Classic Edition. Despite the mini console’s popularity, many wondered if Nintendo would eventually release a SNES Classic Edition. Though the NES is a beloved system in its own right, the SNES is arguably the most popular (and best) Nintendo system of all time. If a new report turns out to be accurate, we may indeed get a SNES mini this holiday.Sources within Nintendo have confirmed to EuroGamer that the company is set to release the SNES Classic Edition in late 2017. According to these sources, the system is already in development. Interestingly enough, Nintendo’s plans for the SNES mini are the main reason why the NES mini was discontinued in the first place.Nintendo always intended the NES mini to be a limited run system. The console became more popular than the company anticipated, with shortages being reported all throughout its brief lifespan. Unfortunately, Nintendo couldn’t extend the run of the NES mini since it already had plans to release the SNES mini.Like the NES mini, the SNES mini will be a plug and play device that comes pre-installed with a number of games. The NES mini came with 30 titles. Hopefully, the SNES mini will contain a great deal more. If Nintendo does release this system, we’ll hopefully see titles like Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country, Super Metroid, Final Fantasy III, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, and many more.None of this has been made official, so take it all with the proverbial grain of salt. If Nintendo does plan to release a SNES Classic Edition, it would be wise for it to produce enough units to meet the demand. Also, let’s hope this console has a longer life than the NES mini, which was officially canceled just last week.

At A Moments Notice

first_img Defence Force Makes History With Public Service Award Related Items:Marine Seaman Michael Turner II, Royal Bahamas Defence Force Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Haitian Migrants Apprehended Recovery Of Stolen Vessel From Atlantis Marina Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppCoral Harbour Base, 3 Sept 2015 (RBDF): It was on a Thursday shortly before 8 p.m. when my cell phone rang. I looked at my phone for a brief second, thoughts began racing through my mind as I recognized the number and then I answered feverishly, “Hello?”. It was my senior on the other end of the line with a sound of relief in his voice, he replied.“Good! You answered. I need you to make your way out at the port at midnight. You will join the ships company to slip harbor tonight in a couple hours for seven days to document the patrol. Have a safe trip and he hung up.As I received my orders my heart skipped a beat and with no one else around to verify whether or not this reality was a dream or this dream was a reality, I had to just stop take a deep breath and relax. Even though the orders came hard and fast, I was eager to go out to sea. I was waiting on the opportunity to do my part as we prepared for the storm. I was ready to help prepare and protect my country, our country.What should have been a typical 24-hour shift lined with fatigues to complete in the morning, suddenly became anything but typical. But what was I to expect? The Bahamas was in its first trimester of its hurricane season and Tropical Storm Erika was due to make landfall that upcoming weekend.As a Marine Seaman on the Royal Bahamas Defence Force, it has definitely been a new experience for me. A marine can be called at a moment’s notice to perform his duties. That’s just the nature of the organization. Therefore, being in a constant state of readiness is crucial. However, in addition to individual preparedness, organizational preparedness is also important and this hurricane season showed me just how prepared we, the Defence Force, are in times of potential disaster.As I followed the updates of Tropical Storm Erika, I learned that The Bahamas was lined up perfectly like bowling pins for a clean strike in hurricane alley. I saw citizens and residents making final attempts to protect life and secure property. Supermarket aisles were packed, store shelves were emptied, home cupboards were filled and anticipation for the oncoming tropical storm grew.All the while, we at the Royal Bahamas Defence Force were also making preparations of our own. Though faced with a potential disaster, we took numerous precautions under the direction of Captain Tellis Bethel, the Commander Defence Force (Acting), and his command team to help safeguard our country and stood ready to provide assistance at a moment’s notice.Subsequently, Advance Teams were dispatched ahead of the storm to various islands such as Mayaguana, Governor’s Harbour and Abaco to assist with the coordination and preparation of hurricane relief efforts. Impact Teams were standing by ready to provide immediate support to pre-defined Advance Teams and affected Family Islands for road, airport, and harbour clearing along with restoration of the basic utilities following the passing of the storm.Defence Force Hurricane Shelter Managers were ready to be stationed at 25 shelters throughout New Providence. Standby Security and Urban Search and Rescue Teams were also established to provide immediate security assistance to shelter managers and local communities, in the event of security threats or missing persons. Teams were also formed to assist families of Defence Force personnel who were abroad and about to face the wrath of Tropical Storm Erika.Marines were assigned to the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) to assist with the coordination of national hurricane relief efforts. Defence Force patrol crafts were dispatched to various locations throughout the Bahama chain of Islands, where they prepared for the aftermath of the storm.Military Police Personnel were stationed at key Government and foreign diplomat facilities in New Providence to provide necessary security. Hurricane Platoons were also standing by to provide further support with hurricane mitigation efforts during and after the storm in Nassau and the Family Islands.We seemed to have covered all the major areas of concern. Most people didn’t see any of it, but while the average Bahamian was on alert for Tropical Storm Erika making landfall, Defence Force marines were already out to sea and on the various family islands anticipating the potential disaster, positioning themselves for what was to come.In a turn of events, Tropical Storm Erika, instead of striking The Bahamas, decided to throw a curve ball, swung around our archipelago and eventually dissipated. However, this provided the Defence Force with an opportunity to put our hurricane plan of action under a microscope, allowing us to identify both our strengths and our weaknesses for the next call of duty. This will undoubtedly enhance our plan of execution in the future if needed.As some of the country’s best trained assets, sufficient gratitude cannot be expressed to the Defence Force marines who continuously and selflessly render their service towards our country’s defence, wherever and whenever called. Leaving your family behind is never easy at such a time, so I can tell my fellow brothers in arms thank you for your service because you are keeping my loved ones safe also as I am to yours.The families of marines must also be acknowledged for their continued support of their loved ones during such times, as these brave men and women of the Defence Force are deployed to safeguard our heritage. Many of us were far from our families and homes, but as a nation, you did not allow us to be far from your thoughts and prayers.Thank you to all our supporters. Your support and well wishes are always appreciated.last_img read more

After 18 Months Hurricane Vulnerability Documents Arrive — But Theyre Thin

first_img Share Edmund D. Fountain/ProPublica/Texas TribuneAn aerial photograph of the Stolthaven Oil Tanking facility along the Houston Ship Channel on Nov. 10, 2015. Shell’s Deer Park facility can be seen in the upper right.Eighteen months ago, the Texas Tribune and ProPublica asked the federal government for some documents.At the time, we were investigating what will happen the next time a massive hurricane hits Houston, and because the city is home to a massive oil refining complex, we knew a big oil spill was one likely consequence.It’s happened before: During Hurricane Katrina, rushing water caused one refinery’s oil tank to rupture, sending oil into more than 1,700 homes a mile away. And the Houston area has many schools and neighborhoods that are less than a mile from large refineries and oil storage terminals.For months, The Texas Tribune and ProPublica tried in vain to get specific information about what could happen if any of the thousands of massive oil tanks along the Houston Ship Channel sprung a leak during a hurricane; whether companies that owned the tanks were prepared; and whether nearby communities understood the risk. Our last hope, we were told, were documents called “Facility Response Plans” that big facilities must submit to the Environmental Protection Agency.The Texas Tribune thanks its sponsors. Become one.So we asked for the plans submitted by more than a dozen oil refineries and storage terminals that sit along a 50-mile waterway known as the Houston Ship Channel.That was in January 2016. The documents finally arrived late last month, but they shed little new light on our original questions.Ever since the 9/11 terrorist attacks, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to get any information about the risks of an accident happening along the Houston Ship Channel. That was apparent as we fought to get these documents.A month after our initial open records request, we got a call from EPA lawyers. They said the documents were “voluminous” and, before releasing them to us, the agency would have to consult with the Department of Homeland Security because of potential sensitive information in the plans.That agency is basically the place where public information requests go to die.There was a way to potentially avoid this, or at least speed it up, the EPA said: Narrow the scope of your request. Ask only for a portion of the plan known as “vulnerability analysis.”The Texas Tribune thanks its sponsors. Become one.That seemed reasonable. According to federal law, those documents “address the potential effects (i.e. to human health, property, or the environment) of an oil discharge” on nearby “water intakes, schools, residential areas, businesses,” and other places. So we agreed to tweak our request.“Thank you, we will continue to process your request,” the EPA wrote in an email in February 2016.A month later, the agency called again with more news: They were ready to provide us with one facility’s vulnerability analysis, for Shell Oil’s refinery in Deer Park. All the other documents would have to go through the agency where public information requests go to die.Still, getting Shell’s document was great news: The refinery is one of the largest in the country, with a crude oil capacity of 14 million gallons. Then the document arrived. It was two pages long and 13 years old — from 2003.The main detail in those two pages: Oil that spills from the refinery could travel as much as 15 miles away in the event of a spill, depending on weather conditions and the time of day.When we asked the company for more details, a spokesman told us they updated their Facility Response Plan in 2012. We still don’t know why the EPA only produced the 2003 version.The company also sent us some other portions of the plan — even though the EPA had insisted that any other portion could have sensitive information that could impact national security.The additional documents noted that Shell had installed new firewalls around its tanks to protect them from damage. They added that an oil spill might affect the “heavy concentration of industrial companies” near the refinery, as well as “adjoining bayous, waterways, bays and wetlands that are environmentally sensitive areas.”The Texas Tribune thanks its sponsors. Become one. More than a year would pass before the EPA gave us any more vulnerability analyses. When they finally arrived on May 23, they were equally underwhelming.The Stolthaven Houston Terminal stores chemicals, petroleum products and vegetable oils in 188 tanks right by the ship channel. Its analysis is one page long, and is simply a list of “features” near the terminal that might be affected by an oil spill, including “water intakes, schools, medical facilities, residential areas,” and “businesses.”The document continues: “Identified vulnerabilities are listed in SECTION 6.” A giant black box follows, where information had been redacted.The Texas Tribune and ProPublica called a number listed on the company’s web site as “media relations” for its U.S. branch. A reporter was connected to someone from the human resources department, and after asking for more information related to the vulnerability analysis, was told, “the answer’s probably no.”At first glance, the documents for a transfer facility operated by Chevron looked more promising: four pages long. However, each page looked like this:This is a page from a document that Chevron submitted to the federal government. It’s supposed to detail how an oil spill at Chevron’s facility in Galena Park might impact the surrounding area. Environmental Protection AgencyA Chevron spokesman said that the company submitted a “complete” report. “The EPA may have redacted the report for security reasons, but any questions about this should be directed to the EPA,” he said. The documents from a Petrobras Refinery in Pasadena contained a few more details, but nothing that could not have been gleaned from searching for the facility on Google Maps. It notes that two elementary schools and one high school are less than a mile from the facility, and that residential populations “begin within a quarter mile … and continue outward.”The document continues, “any evacuation efforts for these areas will be coordinated with the local emergency assistance agencies.” Those same words and phrases appear in many other vulnerability analyses that the EPA provided.The EPA didn’t respond to requests for an interview, either. But officials there have made presentations about how to prepare these documents correctly, and some of the PowerPoints are online.According to those presentations, using “generic verbiage” in these documents could be violating the law. So could leaving out the “analysis of potential effects” on schools and residential areas. Both of those issues appear in many of the documents The Texas Tribune and ProPublica received. In short, as hurricane season begins — and nearly two years after we first started trying to truly understand the risks of what could happen in Houston — we haven’t found out much. All we know is that, as we reported previously, thousands of cylindrical storage tanks carrying the world’s largest concentration of oil, gases and chemicals line the Houston Ship Channel. If a hurricane were to hit at the right angle, more than 25 feet of water could be sent up the channel. If even one of those tanks ruptured because of the rushing floodwaters, areas that are home to hundreds of thousands of people could be affected.Any other details — what companies are prepared for, what the government is doing to monitor them, and specific things that residents can do to protect themselves and their property nearby — probably won’t be publicly available until it’s too late.last_img read more

SAILs endeavour to empower india

first_imgThe Indian steel industry believes that there is a need for levying anti-dumping duties on cheap and low quality steel and stainless steel imports, and the government is supporting and safeguarding the domestic industry by introducing duties, which were showcased at the India International Trade Fair, 2016 (IITF).ESSAR Steel and Jindal Stainless Management Services were the part of the Ministry of Steel Pavilion at the 36th edition of India International Trade Fair, 2016 (IITF). The other steel companies which are a part of the pavilion are Ferro Scrap Nigam Limited (FSNL), Hindustan Steelworks Construction Limited (HSCL), Joint Plant Committee (JPC), JSW Steel,   Metal Scrap Trade Corporation Ltd (MSTC), National Mineral Development Corporation (NMDC), Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Limited (RINL), Steel Authority of India Ltd (SAIL) and TATA Steel. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe government has supported them and introduced several duties with which it is trying to safeguard the domestic industry. Pricing is one and quality is another aspect of anti-dumping. Supporting the government’s move to curb cheap imports from countries like China and Australia, Steel Authority’s anti-dumping duty is already there on steel and stainless steel. In this way, the government is helping the industry and domestic market.Another great initiative by the ministry of steel was coming up with the idea of a single pavilion for leading public and private steel companies of India. It not only brings the entire industry on a single platform but also helps in saving cost.

20-23.battleswere back to business as usual Because in the world we live in a woman-directed superhero movie with a woman as the key character had better not be so very different from the dude-centric ones Baby steps Even so Wonder Woman is a cut above nearly all the superhero movies that have been trotted out over the past few summers Thats largely thanks to the charm of its star Gal Gadot playing the Amazon princess Diana Prince a woman raised on an island of women warriors who takes it upon herself to stop World War I Why not think big We first meet Diana as a small wonder person (played by Lilly Aspell and Emily Carey) a girl living on the appropriately named Paradise Island a kind of all-woman commune known for its fierce well-trained fighters Little Diana watches in fascination as the local badass Antiope (the fine stalwart Robin Wright) schools the island’s young women in the fine art of kicking butt She wants to join in but her protective mother Queen Hippolyta (Connie Nielsen such a regal presence that she elevates even the tiniest role) resists To no availDianas stubbornness wins out And as it turns out her skills surpass those of the rest Plus she has superpowers most notably those conferred by a set of wristlets that allow her to deflect dangerous projectiles and send them hurtling back at the source (Internet trolls take that) Shes also got a lasso of truth a kind of glo-stick whip that keeps baddies in line All is well in this Eden without men which apparently exists outside of time Then early-20th-century American military pilot Steve Trevor (Chris Pine suitably sensible and sweet) literally drops out of the sky Diana lithe and confident has never seen a man before and she examines her new friend with the expected degree of curiosity especially after coming upon him in the buff Guilelessly she quizzes him about his particular physical attributes then segues into curiosity about his watch: "You let this little thing tell you what to do" Leave it to Wonder Woman to ask the question for the ages Steve also explains that warthe First World Waris raging and Diana believes she can stop it if she can kill Ares the god responsible for such atrocities Her resolve is hardened when the Germans storm Paradise Island laying waste with their guns even as the women valiantly defend their turf (This is the best action sequence in the moviefor once you get the sense theres really something at stake) Diana goes with Steve to London where she navigates man’s world with equal parts resolve and elation: She needs to cover up those magnificent stems with a long dress but how to find an outfit she can move in (She settles on a belted jacket-and-skirt number topped with a broad-brimmed derby that does the trick) Diana tries ice-cream for the first time and radiates joy She meets Steves friends and colleaguesamong them Ewen Bremner’s Charlie an ace marksman who has lost his touchand fights fiercely alongside them but also offers empathy and kindness when its needed Gadot is simply marvelous Physically shes bold and commanding But theres a sweetness about her too as if she and Jenkins understand intuitively that Wonder Woman cant just be blandly awesome She’s got to be able to feel wonder too Gadot carries the movie through even its sloggiest parts most notably the big action sequences that pile up at the end Sometimes multiple climaxes are a bad thing The special effects are massive but uninspiring and the action is slightly jerky in places This isnt necessarily Jenkins fault It just comes with the territory of the summer blockbuster as filmmakers strive to make the effects bigger and more impressive while also less surprising All superhero movies must obey the commands of box-office expectations and forever it must be thus Wonder Woman who first appeared in a 1941 DC Comics has been waiting a long timeat least 10 years if not 75 to make it to the big screen Joss Whedon wrote a script ultimately rejected more than a decade ago Michelle McLaren who had directed episodes of Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad was also previously associated with the project Like McLaren Jenkins has also worked mostly in televisionshe hasnt made a movie since her solid 2003 debut Monster And while her hiring as the director of Wonder Woman has been hailed as a step forward for women in Hollywood we should also be careful what we wish for After cutting their teeth on small independent films directors often want the challengeas well as the paycheck and the prestigeof making a big-budget blockbuster But today that arena is rarely where people do their best work Women have a better chance at making powerful meaningful movies if they work outside the big studiosand that goes for men too Still Jenkins Wonder Woman points a way forward toward the possibility of better blockbusters The movies opening section which details Dianas path from scrappy girl to fearless warrior is clever and lively as well as gorgeous to look at On the island Dianas warrior-wear is a distressed-metallic leather bustier topping a sort of tutu-like Utilikilt Leaping and soaring through her training shes like one of Degas bronze ballerina sculptures grown up and come to life strong and free and at least a little pissed off Her grand jeté is all muscle and all heart At last its her time to shine Contact us at editors@timecom birth rates in Germany have
