  3. Appeal for witnesses to M4 milk lorry crash

    Police are appealing for witnesses to a collision on the M4 on Tuesday which left a 65-year-old lorry driver seriously injured.

    The truck was travelling on the London-bound carriageway of the motorway between junctions 8/9 at Maidenhead and junction 7 at Slough West at 08:00 when detectives say the driver had a medical episode.

    The articulated tanker, carrying milk, went down an embankment and hit a tree.

    The driver, from Paignton in Devon, is in a serious but stable condition at Wexham Park Hospital.

  4. Thames Valley Police re-issues helmets ahead of royal wedding

    The traditional British police helmet will be reintroduced for Thames Valley Police officers ahead of the royal wedding.

    The force ditched the headgear in 2009, but they will be rolled out again to frontline officers.

    Thames Valley Police Federation says the £30,000 cost would be better spent on "health and welfare" services for officers.

  5. Further arrest over Blackbird Leys murder

    A further arrest has been made in connection with a murder investigation in Blackbird Leys, Oxford.

    Christopher Lemonius, 27, was found suffering from serious injuries on 1 June last year and later died.

    Since the incident, six people have been charged with murder, and four with perverting the course of justice.

    On Thursday, a 26-year-old man from Blackbird Leys was arrested on suspicion of murder.

    He has been released under investigation.

  6. X-ray probe to save Mary Rose cannonballs

    Researchers are using powerful X-rays at the Diamond Light Source facility in Didcot to look inside cannonballs found on the Mary Rose.

    They are trying to find a way of preserving the shot from the famous Tudor ship, which will corrode if it is put on display.

    There are 1,200 of the cannonballs, found on Henry VIII's flagship, currently stored in low humidity containers away from public gaze.

    The Mary Rose sank in 1545 and was raised from the sea in 1982.

    The cannonballs on board are difficult to conserve because chlorine has got into them from being in the sea.

    Shaman with dog

    More than 12 people chose to sleep rough in sub-zero temperatures in Oxford last week instead of using shelters.

    Campaigners say it was down to concerns about safety and a lack of places for dogs.

    Shamen, who slept rough in Oxford during the worst of the weather, said she would not leave her dog.

    She said: "I couldn't not be with them...we share body heat and either be cold or warm together".

    Cllr Mike Rowley, Oxford City Council board member for housing, said "unfortunately they could not provide for everything".

    "If you let a lot of people in, and you have a room full of dogs, it's not actually safe.

    "We have offered spaces in kennels - personally I think having a dog in a warm kennel and yourself in a warm room is better than sleeping on the streets....but it is a free country, I can't force people to make these decisions."

    Shabnam Sobia from the Oxford Homeless Project said concern about safety at the shelter O'Hanlon House was also a factor, and more needed to be done to provide for people with dogs.

    In response, Charlotte Blake from Homeless Oxfordshire - which runs O'Hanlon House - said it was a place for "high need clients" and accepted that increased the chance of conflicts.

    But she added staff were very experienced, and other shelters were available when temperatures dropped below freezing.
