    Four police constables have been dismissed from Leicestershire Police for sending derogatory and discriminatory messages to each other on WhatsApp.

    An Independent Police Complaints Commission investigation found the officers had shared about 100 messages on the WhatsApp instant messaging service on a group called the Inner Circle between April 2013 and January 2014.


    The content was deemed offensive and derogatory and included terms that were discriminatory and sexual.

    Leicestershire Police held a force misconduct hearing last week when four officers were dismissed without notice and four were given final written warnings.

    All had a case proven for gross misconduct.

  10. Woman 'could have survived sepsis' with earlier antibiotic treatment

    BBC Panorama

    Investigative TV show

    A woman's death from sepsis could have been prevented if a Staffordshire hospital had given her antibiotics at an earlier stage, a world-leading expert in sepsis says.

    Margaret Jackson was admitted to Queen's Hospital, Burton in 2015 with chest pains and a high temperature.

    Her husband says she deteriorated rapidly, although sepsis was not recorded as having contributed to Mrs Jackson's death.

    Her treatment has been reviewed by Dr Ron Daniels, chief executive of the Sepsis Trust, for BBC Panorama and he says earlier use of antibiotics "might have improved her chances of survival".

    Burton hospital says it has made vast improvements in the past six months and is now screening 98% of in-patients.

    BBC Panorama will investigate Britain's Sepsis Crisis on BBC One tonight from 20:30.

    The 12-year-old boy who died after falling through the roof of a factory in Derby has been named as Adam Johnson.

    Tributes and a book of condolence have been left at Allestree Woodlands School, where he was a pupil.

    Derby City Council released a statement offering its "deepest sympathies" to Adam's family and friends, and also said it had raised "serious safety concerns" around the Aidi Bliss factory site with the owners "on several occasions".

    Quote Message: As the site does not belong to us the council is not in a position to carry out security measures on what is private property. We have been in negotiations for some time to purchase the site in order to construct flood defences and to redevelop the factory. Negotiations are ongoing and we are optimistic of reaching a satisfactory agreement." from Derby City Council spokesman

    Nottinghamshire Police has released a CCTV image of this man in connection with a series of incidents of lone women being targeted.

    CCTV Beeston Chilwell Nottinghamshire Police

    The four cases involve women being followed in the Beeston and Chilwell areas over the weekend.

    An 82-year-old woman was attacked from behind by a man at about 20:45 on Hall Drive in Chilwell on Saturday, but the man left empty-handed after a passer-by intervened.

    A police spokesman said a 35-year-old woman had her handbag stolen and a chain ripped from her neck after she was bundled to the floor in Caldbeck Court in Chilwell, and an 80-year-old woman was followed onto the tram at Beeston before she raised the alarm.

    Quote Message: We believe the suspect has been using the tram and tram lines to follow vulnerable women. This is a very clear image of a person of interest to the investigation and I’m confident somebody seeing this will know who he is." from Steve Wragg Nottinghamshire Police

  14. Daughter of fraud victims calls for more support

    Sarah Teale

    Reporter, East Midlands Today

    The daughter of a couple scammed out of their life savings says there should be more help for victims of fraud.

    Franny Moyle is calling for a change in the law to protect potential targets after her parents lost £100,000 when they were targeted by high-pressure sales callers.

    She says every sales call should be recorded to make sure customers are safe.

    It comes as Nottinghamshire Police says there's been such a rise in the number of people falling victim to fraudsters that they're making it a priority to protect the elderly and vulnerable.
