  8. Portsmouth and Sylhet in Bangladesh to become 'sister cities'

    Proposals are being prepared to make Sylhet in Bangladesh a sister city of Portsmouth.

    Gerald Vernon-Jackson, the leader of Portsmouth City Council, wrote to the city's mayor to suggest the arrangement.

    He said: "Over many recent decades the Bangladeshi community in our city has played a very important role. They are a highly-respected community in Portsmouth and their contribution is significantly valued."

    The idea was agreed by Ariful Haque Choudhury, the mayor of Sylhet City Corporation.

    Ben Dowling, cabinet member for planning regeneration and economic development, said: "Many Portsmouth residents have strong links with Sylhet, and it's good to recognise this and build on these ties, including developing links that can help local businesses."

    Portsmouth City Council's cabinet will discuss the proposal on Monday.

  10. Baby park death: Charity offers £10,000 reward

    Police at scene of baby death

    A £10,000 reward is being offered by Crimestoppers to find the murderer of a newborn baby found in a park.

    Baby M's remains were discovered by a maintenance worker clearing shubbery beds in Manor Park, Church Hill, Aldershot, in May 2017. Hampshire Constabulary believes she was born near the park and was then killed by deliberate head injuries.

    Emily van der Lely, regional manager for Hampshire at the charity, said:"This is a particularly distressing case and one of the worst I’ve ever been involved with.

    "To think that a new born baby is murdered shortly after birth in a park is shocking for the community and we are keen to have answers as to what happened and who was involved.

    "DNA from the mother (which was taken from blood at the scene) and from the baby suggests the victim was born to parents who are of East Asian origin."

    She added: "Investigators who have asked our charity to put up this reward believe that someone in the community either knows or has strong reasons to suspect who the mother is."
