Boston plans for an underwater future



By 2100, 30% of Boston could be under water. Photograph: Alamy

The best city stories from around the web this week look at Boston's plans to prepare itself for the impact of climate change, reveal Amsterdam's floating islands for cycle parking, find bees at urban airports and share photographs from Tokyo and Delhi.

We'd love to hear your responses to these stories and any others you've read recently, both at Guardian Cities and elsewhere: share your thoughts in the comments below.

Plans for Boston - submerged

Boston may have been inundated by snow recently, but that's not all it will need to cope with in future. By 2100, it's predicted that water levels will have risen by five to six feet in Boston's Harbour area, meaning that 30% of the city could be under water. Cue the competition Boston Living With Water, organised by the city authority, to encourage creative solutions to this anticipated environmental transformation. As Fast Co Exist discusses, designs include floating parks, inlets waterways and "hydrokinetic canals" that generate electricity when the water flows in and out. If you are thinking of visiting Europe the following link has lots of information on Discounted Child Friendly Frankfurt Hotels.Tidal marshes, "living levees" and "floodable spaces" are also proposed.

Finding space in Tokyo

32 million: that's the size of the Tokyo metropolitan region. It's also the title of photographer Andreas Meichsner's project documenting the city. "When I came to Japan in 2002, I was shocked by the narrowness and the endlessness of the built space," he recalls in Uncube magazine.

"My first train ride from Osaka airport to Hiroshima went through an endless sea of houses without any noticeable interruption between the cities ... it [later] became apparent that I needed to address these spaces since they are representative not only of this kind of agglomeration, but also for the worldwide process of urbanisation." From homes under railways to overcrowded public transport, his images explore the tightness of space in Tokyo and its impact on the people who live there.

Airport buzz

City airports around the world are harbouring some very unusual communities: hives of bees. As the New York Times explains, beehives in an empty field of Montreal's Mirabel airport are the latest in what is becoming a common undertaking among urban airports - including Hamburg and Chicago. When Copenhagen's plans to expand its airport fell flat, bees found a new home in the newly purchased land.

"For airports, beehives can be an easy way to flaunt green credentials while putting space to work in fields that legally cannot be built on. The relationship is a symbiotic one: urban beekeepers need more space, and airports have space to spare."

Islands for bikes

It's official: Amsterdam has too many bikes. Despite the city providing 2,500 cycle parking spaces, it is still not enough - and space has run out to build more. CityLab reports that as a result, Amsterdam is coming up with a plan to create more parking for bikes in some unexpected places: under - and over - water. The proposals involve excavating a 7,000-space bicycle garage under the city's IJ lake, as well as creating two new floating islands with space for 2,000 bikes each.

In other Dutch cycling news over on Next City, plans are being explored to provide a 30km-long intercity cycling "highway" between the cities of Assen and Groningen, to become a fast commuting route for cyclists.

The nooks of urban India

Scroll shares this beautiful photo essay exploring the "vanishing old nooks" of Delhi, Bhopal, Ahmedabad and Mumbai - and the characters photographer Diba Siddiqi came across there. Siddiqi discovers stories and history in the small streets, doorways and courtyards of these cities: "It is here that there are glimpses of the story of a place. These are themes that revealed themselves as I walked and found my pictures: spaces and the human presences they harbour, the worlds of long ago speaking in the present."

Mohammed Emwazi's university refuses to cancel hardline preacher talk

The university attended by Mohammed Emwazi, the Islamic State extremist known as "Jihadi John", has suspended any student union event deemed "sensitive" a day after his identity was revealed.

The University of Westminster's decision came amid confusion over when and if an event entitled Who is Muhammad? - originally scheduled for Thursday night and due to feature a controversial Islamic preacher - would go ahead.

A campaign to ban Sheikh Haitham al-Haddad from speaking was launched after allegations were made that he has described homosexuality as a "scourge" and "criminal act".

More than 3,000 people signed a petition to stop him speaking at the event, but he insisted he should be allowed to on the grounds the event was not focused on sexuality.

The university's Islamic society was forced to postpone the event over security concerns on Thursday afternoon after Emwazi, 26, was identified.

On Friday sources close to the university's Islamic Society suggested it had been rescheduled for Monday.

However, the university released a statement late on Friday contradicting that and clarifying that "any events that have been deemed sensitive have been suspended".

Controversy over the event came as the university confirmed that Emwazi graduated from a three-year course in information systems and business management in 2009.

Haddad said the campaign against him, led by the university's LGBTI society, was "completely misplaced" because his views on sexuality were not the focus of the discussion.

"In the religion of Islam, it is clear-cut that homosexual acts are a sin and are unlawful in sharia. Trying to censor lawful speech does not change this fact," he said.

London, with its historic buildings, will always be an exciting but far from cheap place to visit. Thankfully, moving a few miles away from the metropolis means that the the cost of hotel rooms drop to a more affordable level. The cost of hotel rooms shouldn't prevent you from visiting one of the most exciting cities in the world, just book rooms away from London and take the train, tube or a red London bus into town. The following link has further information on Discounted Child Friendly Isle of Wight Hotels.

Haddad said his views were similar to "those of orthodox Christian or Jewish religious leaders" and that denying him a platform was to deny him his right to free speech.

The university's Islamic society defended him, reiterating that sexuality was not the focus of the debate.

In a statement, the society said that inviting Haddad was not intended to cause any offence, but was motivated solely by his standing among religious leaders.

Peter Tatchell, the prominent gay rights activist, said members of University of Westminster's LGBTI society and women's rights campaigners had for years been targeted by hardline Islamist students.

"The atmosphere is intimidatory towards gay and women's rights campaigners and towards fellow Muslims who don't share their hardline interpretation of Islam," he told the Guardian.

Tatchell, who has given talks at the university and has close links to its LGBTI society, said the group's posters had been torn down and defaced as recently as last year.

"Gay and women students have also told me that they are too frightened to challenge Islamists on campus because they fear retribution," he said.

A senior lecturer, who declined to be named publicly, said the overwhelming majority of Muslim students at the university were moderate in their beliefs and were upset that preachers such as Haddad were invited to talk at the Islamic society event.

He said the society was run by extreme figures between 2008 and 2011 but that they had all graduated.

There was now only a small number of hardline Wahabi Muslims who could cause problems, he said, citing the example of a Saudi Arabian student complaining six months ago that she was being "shouted at by other Muslim students simply because she was Saudi".

Security on the university's four campuses has been increased in recent years, with spot checks on students and restrictions on visitors. A sign at the university warns that the security alert status has been raised to amber due to a "heightened state of awareness of potential security problems or threats".

The university has attempted to distance itself from Emwazi, saying in a statement that it was "shocked and sickened" by the news.

Asked about the allegations concerning LGBT students being targeted, a university spokeswoman said it "condemns the promotion of radicalisation, terrorism and violence or threats against any member of our community" and that any student found to be engaging in radicalised activity or intimidating others would be referred to disciplinary procedures.

In a separate statement, the university's Islamic society said it has "nothing to do with" Emwazi and added: "It is not associated with any extremist organisations and that should be obvious and not need stating, but given the climate, it has become necessary to clarify such things in statements such as this."

The general thing is it's not a crazy extremist university. Not at all. Everyone I know is condemning this Jihadi John

Naj, student

Since March 2012, the university's Islamic society is estimated to have hosted 22 events featuring speakers with a history of radical Islamist views, according to the Henry Jackson Society thinktank.

Previous speakers have included Anwar al-Awlaki, an al-Qaida leader killed by a US drone strike in Yemen in September 2011; Hizb ut-Tahrir member Jamal Harwood; and Dr Khalid Fikry, who has given speeches in which he appears to suggest that Shia Muslims believe "raping a Sunni woman is a matter that pleases Allah".

Former Westminster university student Yassin Nassari was jailed in 2007 for carrying blueprints for a rocket in his luggage when stopped by police at Luton airport.

It is not known whether Nassari was radicalised at the university, but his Old Bailey trial heard that, after taking a break from his studies, he reappeared wearing long robes and referring to himself as "emir" of the student's Islamic society.

In 2011, the university was in the spotlight after it emerged that the then-president and a vice-president of its students' union had links to the extremist group Hizb ut-Tahrir, which has long called for the establishment of an Islamic state.

In 2012, a series of jihadist videos were posted on the Islamic society's Facebook page in support of al-Shabaab, the Somali Islamist terrorist group that on 21 February this year called for attacks on US, UK and Canadian shopping malls.

Several students spoken to by the Guardian on Friday insisted that the university was not a hotbed of radical Islamism.

"I don't want to use the word 'extreme': it's a volatile word. There's different scales. I'm a Muslim myself and there are liberal moderates and more conservative," said Naj, 20, a second-year law student.

"The general thing is it's not a crazy extremist university. Not at all. Everyone I know is condemning this Jihadi John. I don't like how the media is painting this uni to be a hub of extremism."

Recent graduate Haleema Abdullahi, 22, said the university stood out due to its "large Muslim population" and because many students chose to wear traditional Islamic dress.

"People say we're extremist - the University of Westminster is very active with lots of events open to everyone and many sisters there are active. People say they are conservative as many wear abaya and hijab," she said.

Abdullahi said she was sickened by Emwazi's actions, but that was not fair to link him to the university because he graduated six years ago. She added: "Other extremists went to other unis - it happens."

Speaking at the university's Regent Street campus, a language masters student who declined to be named said the university may have a hardline reputation because some campuses had many Muslims.

"I've been here for four years and I haven't seen any radicalisation and the university Islamic society has made efforts to include people and invite non-Muslims to events, too," she said.

However, another student said the university was segregated between Muslims and non-Muslims. "If you're not a Muslim, you won't know what happens in that separate community," she said.

Investigation continues into baby 'neglect' at McDonald's in Asda



AN investigation continues today into claims a baby was "neglected" at a Hampshire supermarket.

It comes after worried shoppers raised the alarm claiming the infant was being "manhandled".

Witnesses said the baby was "thrown" into its pram and hit its head while in Asda in Totton.

If you are thinking of making a trip to the southern counties of England the following link has lots of information on Discounted Child Friendly Essex Hotels.

The incident took place in the McDonalds restaurant area of the supermarket.

Customers in the store were so concerned they initially called the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC) The child welfare charity then called in Hampshire Police.

Both the fast food company and the store said they would release any CCTV footage of the incident to police.

One witness who claimed to see the drama said it involved a six to eight week-old baby.

The woman said it appeared the child was with a female relative and was being shouted at and "manhandling".

The witness claimed she saw her "practically throw" the baby into its carrier which resulted in it hitting its head on the way in.

It is claimed the woman then ignored the baby's cries, and carried on eating a burger.

She said it happened on February 23, between 3.50pm and 5pm.

A statement from Hampshire Police, said: "We received a report from the NSPCC after they were contacted by a member of the public who witnessed what she regarded as a woman neglecting a baby in McDonalds in Asda, Totton.

"The matter in being looked in to."

The restaurant is managed by ASDA but McDonalds confirmed they are working with the store to ensure police have access to CCTV for any investigation.

A McDondalds spokesman would not be drawn on the details of the incident but told the Daily Echo: "We are aware of the incident and are supporting police with their inquiries."

Meanwhile ASDA also said they are also assisting police with enquiries, including the hand-over of any CCTV footage.

Head of NSPCC child protection operations John Cameron said they could not comment on the specific incident.

But he confirmed that their helpline did make a referral to Hampshire Police Force.

Mt Cameron also urged anyone worried about a child, even if they are unsure, to contact the NSPCC's helpline (24/7) for help, advice and support on 0808 800 5000 or email help@nspcc.org.uk

Greece draws up EUR7.3bn tax hit list aimed at oligarchs and criminals - report

Greece has drawn up a EUR7.3bn tax hit list aimed at the country's oligarchs and lucrative smuggling industry, a German newspaper said, as part of reform proposals due to its creditors.

European finance ministers on Friday gave Athens just over three days to draw up a list acceptable to its international creditors in exchange for a four-month extension of its debt bailout.

The German tabloid Bild reported that the Greek government hopes to garner EUR2.5bn in tax receipts from the fortunes of powerful Greek tycoons, citing sources close to the hard-left Syriza government.

Related: Greece scrambles to finalise fiscal reform list

A similar amount would be drawn from back taxes owed to the state by individuals and businesses, Bild said.

The report said an additional crackdown on illegal smuggling of petrol and cigarettes would yield another EUR2.3bn for the government coffers.

Greece's government is walking a tightrope between its commitments to European creditors and its electoral pledges to end austerity in a country struggling to recover from severe economic crisis.

Two previous rounds of talks ended in acrimony with Greece accusing Germany and other hardline EU member states of sabotaging a deal.

To win Friday's hard-fought deal, Athens pledged to refrain from one-sided measures that could compromise its fiscal targets and had to abandon plans to use some EUR11bn in leftover European bank support funds to help restart the Greek economy.

"Europe has some breathing space, nothing more, and certainly not a resolution. Now it's up to Athens," German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier told Bild.

"The fundamentals - namely assistance in exchange for reform - must remain the same."

On Tuesday, Greece's creditors will decide whether to proceed with Friday's agreement after considering the proposals, with the chance that the compromise could be scrapped if they are not satisfied.

If Athens sticks to its commitments, it stands to receive up to EUR7.2bn in funds still left in its EUR240bn bailout from the EU and the International Monetary Fund.

The real problem with whistleblowing



HSBC Geneva

HSBC Geneva - Copyright Elena Duvernay

The recent chapter in the drama of the HSBC Geneva Swissleaks saga has brought whistle blowing back into the news. In this article Yasmine Motarjemi explains the real problem and what the world should focus on.

The Council of Europe defines a "whistleblower" as anyone who reports or discloses information on a threat or harm to the public interest in the context of a work-based relationship, whether in the public or private sector (see Recommendations on the Protection of Whistleblowers, document CM/Rec (2014) 7 (adopted April 2014). Although not explicitly mentioned, it is assumed that the information is reported in good faith.

In my experience, most cases of whistleblowing fall into two main categories. In the first, employees remain with their employers and act in conformity with the law and internal policies. Which is to say that they report the fraud, threat or wrongdoing first to management and then, only if necessary, to regulatory authorities or possibly the general public.

Experience also shows that this approach, even modified by the proposed draft Swiss law currently under review, fails to work properly, especially when management is behind the practices being denounced. The reasons are threefold:

1. If employees are "lucky", they are dismissed or laid off, and end up losing their jobs. But before that happens they can be subjected to psychological harassment until they are broken and discredited. Some individuals are even pushed to the point of suicide, with any evidence of wrongdoing disappearing with them.

2. Assuming they decide to seek redress in court, employees face another nightmare. Giant corporations have unlimited resources to buy witnesses, delay the legal process, and exert political pressure. Meanwhile employees are obliged to spend their meagre resources and made to wait in anguish for years for an uncertain outcome. Under the circumstances, finding a new job might well be impossible.

3. As for the authorities, only rarely are they interested enough to open an enquiry. The media and general public often fail to support discredited employees, while the offending company and its unscrupulous managers get off scot-free.

Whistleblower This situation favours the emergence of a second approach called "wild whistleblowing", which describes extra-legal, even illegal, approaches to reporting or disclosing information. The case of Edward Snowden comes easily to mind. However, such cases are far from risk-free since the whistleblower runs the risk of being pursued and sanctioned by the courts.

There are other instances where the information is reported not so much in the public interest as for personal gain, for instance to reduce a prison term or obtain a financial reward. Bradley Birkenfeld reportedly received $104 million compensation for revealing the names of UBS clients suspected of evading US income tax.

In the case of HSBC, whatever the nature of the whistleblowing and the motivation behind it, the information disclosed by the media goes beyond what is legitimately in the public interest.

What business is it of ours that messages prepared by bank staff were rife with spelling and grammatical errors?

What business is it of ours to learn about staff/customer relations, the intimate and, by definition, private details of their lives? Publication by the media is an act of sheer voyeurism.

In fact, the recent revelations about HSBC only confirm what we already knew or had reason to suspect. It would have been enough to open enquiries or, better still, monitor banks to obtain information legally.

What the HSBC scandal reveals are the inherent deficiencies in our regulations, and the existing system of whistleblowing and social justice. This is true not only in Switzerland but also globally, given that multinational corporations make the most of national laws to ensure they get the best deal.

What is urgently needed is international consensus on whistleblowing and national laws that genuinely protect whistleblowers. See also a related Le News article from 9 October 2014.

Barts Health chief executive and chief nurse resign

The chief executive and chief nurse of Barts Health NHS trust in London have announced their resignations, a fortnight after the trust reported a £93m deficit.

Peter Morris has been chief executive for six years, while Prof Kay Riley has been at Barts for eight years. Last summer Barts' deficit was expected to be around £44m, but on 5 February it was announced that it had more than doubled.

Morris said he wanted to move on to new challenges in healthcare, while Riley said she would leave this month and retire in October. There was no mention in the resignation statements of the trust's financial struggles.

Sir Stephen O'Brien, chair of the trust, said Morris had been "an inspirational leader at Barts, seeing through one of the most far-reaching service transformations ever attempted within the NHS with the merger that created Barts Health."

The merger involved three hospital trusts in east London. Barts Health said Morris had delivered the biggest hospitals redevelopment project in the country.

Morris said he had set himself five years to overhaul acute services and deliver improvements. "As Barts Health moves towards foundation trust status there is a need for senior management continuity to provide leadership for the next five years, and beyond. That is a long-term commitment that I am not able to make and so I feel the time is right for me to hand over to a new chief executive, and start the next chapter in my own career.

"I will look to take my extensive learning and experience in the healthcare sector to help others develop and deliver their own strategic plans," he said.

The trust said Riley would be moving to work at Health Education North West London until October, "to pass on her wealth of experience to the next generation of nurses".

Riley said: "I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Barts. Having joined an institution with such a proud and distinguished history in the development of nursing dating back centuries, it has been a privilege and a pleasure to use the opportunity given to me as chief nurse to take forward and develop the ethos of innovative and compassionate nursing."

Wednesday new briefing -- Feb. 18, 2015



Arms used in Paris terrorist attacks allegedly came from Slovakia; Amazon starts hiring managers for Dobrovíz center; Czech police catch man who threatened factory with bomb

The firearms the terrorists used in the bloody attacks in Paris in January were probably originally bought in Slovakia, Slovak daily Nový ?as has written, adding that the French police have asked their colleagues for identification of seven submachine guns.

Slovak Interior Minister Robert Kali?ák would not elaborate when meeting journalists. He only said his office is preparing tightening the conditions of handling certain types of weapons.

Seventeen people were killed in the massacre in the editorial offices of the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo and the subsequent attacks.

Nový ?as writes that some of the weapons the French detectives seized after the attacks were legally bought in Slovak shops.

Nový ?as writes that the weapons were then exported to Belgium and then to France where they reached the terrorists.

"It is a sensitive theme, I cannot tell more. This has been dealt with not for the first or second week," he said.

The operability of the depreciated weapons can be fully restored.

If you are considering a trip to Europe this year then clicking on he following link will provide information especially relevant to anybody looking for ##LINK~##.The interested persons do not need Slovak authorities' permission to buy depreciated weapons for which blank cartridges are used. The sale is possible by citizens older than 18, but the rules of their possession will be tightened, Kali?ák said.

Amazon starts hiring managers for Dobrovíz center

US Internet company Amazon started to hire managers for its distribution center in Dobrovíz near Prague, which is to be opened in September, Klara Honorová from a communication agency has told the Czech News Agency.

Amazon plans hiring of ordinary employees for the second quarter of this year.

In the first stage, Amazon is looking for 35 managers for the department of logistics at Dobrovíz, Horová said.

The new managers will be required to complete a three-month training in distribution centers in Europe and the United States. In Dobrovíz they will be in charge of leading and building teams of employees working in the main sections of the distribution center.

The company has discovered amazing talents in the CzechRepublic and it is sure that it will find even more qualified and experienced employees in this country, Amazon distribution centers regional director Erwin Brunner said.

The Amazon distribution center in Dobrovíz will cover an area of 95,500 square meters. Within three years since the start of operation it is expected to offer permanent jobs to 2,000 people and seasonal jobs to further 3,000 people.

The distribution center will be Amazon's second building in Dobrovíz. In 2013 in opened a returned goods center there.

Amazon originally intended to build another distribution center in Brno, southern Moravia, but it withdrew from the intention owing to delays over a change in the zoning plan.

Amazon is the biggest Internet shop in the world, employing a total of 97,000 people.

Czech police catch man who threatened factory with bomb

Detectives have caught a 33-year-old man suspected of having anonymously threatened with a bomb in the Zora Olomouc sweets maker in mid-October 2014, causing a damage of almost three million crowns, regional police spokeswoman Marie ?trbaková told ?TK today.

She said the man confessed to the crime that drove some 300 employees out from the firm. No bomb was found.

?trbaková said he was drunk during the threat and that he previously applied for a job in Zora. He faces up to five years in prison for scaremongering if found guilty, she said.

The man lost his last money gambling during the previous night. "When passing a public telephone box, it occurred to him that he could phone somewhere. He found the firm's number in his phone because he called there when seeking a job about a fortnight ago," ?trbaková said.

In a similar case in 2011, the police caught a 41-year-old man who allegedly threatened the Meopta firm with a bomb, but experts did not find any bomb. The evacuation of the firm and interruption of its work cost half a million crowns. The threat was motivated by family problems.

Dickens card in city exhibition





14 February 2015

Last updated at 19:08



A calling card used by novelist Charles Dickens is among more than 100 objects in a new exhibition that aims to highlight Portsmouth's past.

Some items on display as part of the free Portsmouth City Museum exhibition have never been seen in public before.

They also include a JMW Turner painting of the city's harbour.

The exhibits for the project, financed by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), were collected over the past 35 years. Dickens was born in Portsmouth in 1812.

Rosalinda Hardiman from the museum has collected the objects, which also include a World War Two bomb, an 800-year-old cosmetics jar, and a mirror believed to have been owned by royal mistress Lillie Langtry.

The 250kg (551lb) bomb, dating from 1941, was found in Guildhall Walk in 1984. It was later safely detonated.

The exhibition, A Hard Choice, was awarded £9,800 from HLF and is on display until September.

If you are considering visiting the southern counties of England the following link has detailed information on Cheap Family Hotels in the Thames Valley.

Dickens spent the first three years of his life in Portsmouth before moving to London and then Kent.

Copenhagen attacks: Danish police charge two men



Amateur video footage shows the immediate aftermath of the shooting at a cafe in Copenhagen

Two men detained on Sunday have been ordered to remain in custody for 10 days after being charged with aiding the suspect in the Copenhagen terror attacks.

A 22-year-old Danish-born gunman killed a film director and a young Jewish man at the weekend in Denmark's most lethal terror attack in decades.

The defence lawyer for one of the detained men said they were accused of helping the gunman evade authorities and get rid of a weapon during the manhunt that ended early on Sunday when the attacker was killed in a shootout with police.

The suspects, arraigned at a four-hour closed hearing on Monday, were accused of "having helped the perpetrator in connection with the shooting attacks", Copenhagen police said.

Michael Juul Eriksen, defence attorney for one of the men, told reporters they deny the allegations.

The suspected gunman has been named in local media as Omar Abdel Hamid el-Hussein. He was reportedly released from prison a few weeks ago after serving a sentence for knife crime. Police did not confirm the name.

Omar el-Hussein

Danish prime minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt said there were no signs the gunman was part of a wider terror cell.

"This is not a conflict between Islam and the west," she said. "This is a conflict between the core values of our society and violent extremists."

She urged Jews not to emigrate despite a call from her Israeli counterpart Benjamin Netanyahu for European Jews to go to Israel following the twin attacks in the Danish capital.

"The Jewish community have been in this country for centuries. They belong in Denmark, they are part of the Danish community and we wouldn't be the same without the Jewish community in Denmark," she told reporters.

The first attack came at 3.30pm on Saturday afternoon during a free-speech debate in a cafe attended by, among others, the French ambassador and Lars Vilks, a Swedish artist who depicted the prophet Muhammad as a dog in a 2007 cartoon and whose life has been under threat ever since. Finn Nørgaard, 55, a film director attending the event, was reportedly shot dead at close range after going outside for an unknown reason at the time the attacker struck.

The gunman fled the scene, but at about 1am he struck again outside the city's central synagogue, on a narrow street in the heart of Copenhagen, shooting dead Dan Uzan, 37, a Jewish security guard who was manning the door of a bat mitzvah party.

At dawn, the attacker was killed in a shootout on a quiet street in the traditionally working-class area of north-west Copenhagen, bordering the Nørrebro district.

On Sunday afternoon, police continued to search apartments and raided an internet cafe nearby as part of their investigation.

Denmark's spy chief, Jens Madsen, said the gunman - who was known to police because of past violence, gang-related activities and possession of weapons - had perhaps been trying to stage a copycat attack of the three days of bloody mayhem in Paris last month, which began with a massacre of cartoonists and others at the offices of the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo and ended in a murderous siege at a kosher supermarket.

"We cannot yet say anything concrete about the motive ... but are considering that he might have been inspired by the events in Paris some weeks ago," Madsen said.

Thorning-Schmidt described the killings as "a cynical act of terror". She said: "We have tried the ugly taste of fear and powerlessness which terror hopes to create." She added that Denmark was living a day of sorrow but vowed: "We will defend our democracy and we will defend Denmark at any time."

On Sunday, the European Jewish Association called for increased security of Jewish institutions across Europe. Rabbi Menachem Margolin, the general director, said EU leaders had not done enough to combat antisemitic attacks and prejudices in the runup to the attacks on Saturday and in the early hours of Sunday, and pointed to a need to "secure all Jewish institutions 24/7".

Ex-head, 95, in court over sex abuse

Last updated at 15:49



The southern counties of England have a lot to delight our visitors. With world famous seaside resorts such as Brighton, The Isle of Wight and Hastings together with all of the delightful seaside towns and villages in Devon and Cornwall, there's plenty to entertain you without getting within 30 miles of England's capital city. Accommodation costs are considerably lower once you are outside the M25 motorway surrounding the city, so why not stay in one of our wonderful coastal resorts you can always take the train into London for a sightseeing day). The following link has further information on Cheap Kent Family Hotels.

A 95-year-old former head teacher facing 50 charges of sex attacks on 17 children has appeared in court.

Jack Mount, who lives in South Molton, Devon, has previously pleaded not guilty to the offences, which are alleged to have taken place in Shropshire between 1954 and 1979.

Judge Francis Gilbert QC at Exeter Crown Court ruled that the trial should take place in Bristol in January 2016.

He said this was because it could not be heard in Devon until May 2016.

The case has been transferred to Exeter from Birmingham Crown Court, where Mr Mount appeared for the first time last month.

The prosecution has indicated it would like to have the case heard in Birmingham as that could happen in September of this year.

A final decision on the venue has not yet been agreed. Mr Mount did not speak during the 25-minute hearing.

Mr Mount is one of the oldest defendants ever to face trial in Britain and is in poor health and suffering from Parkinson's disease.

Judge Gilbert adjourned the case and bailed Mr Mount to the date of his trial.

Man attacked in Felpham street



10 February 2015

Police are investigating an attack on a man in a Felpham street.

At about 8:30am on Friday 30 January, the 30-year old local man was outside an address in Bulbeck Way, Felpham, Bognor Regis, waiting to be picked up by a friend when a light coloured car, possibly a Vauxhall Corsa or similar, with silver alloy wheels and in a good condition, pulled into the cul-de-sac.

The woman driving the car and a man who was the front seat passenger got out and the passenger started shouting at the man who was waiting for a lift.

The woman reached inside the car, and took out a baseball bat which she passed to the passenger. He then beat the victim to the head and torso. The victim managed to get away from his attacker who then left the scene.

The victim was treated at Bognor Memorial Hospital for bruising.

The man suspected of the assault was described as white, about 6'1" to 6'2", in his mid-thirties, with dirty blond hair in a french crop style. He had dark coloured stubble and was of lean build with a pointed, long face. The woman with him was described as white, about 5'6" to 5'7", with very dark brown shoulder length straight hair. She was of slim build and was wearing a white long sleeved top.

Detective Constable Andrea Watts said; "The motive for this attack is not clear. If you saw what happened please contact us via 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call us on 101, quoting serial 206 of 30/1. You can also call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111."

Two men arrested for Brighton shooting



05 February 2015

Two men have been arrested by detectives investigating a shooting in Elmore Road, Brighton, last month.

A 39-year-old man living in a flat in Elmore Road, Brighton, suffered shotgun wounds at 11.25pm on Tuesday 27 January.

Three men who went to his address fired a single shot through the door which hit him but did not cause life-threatening injuries. The victim was taken by ambulance to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton, where he was treated for his injuries. Armed officers were deployed but the suspects had fled.

On Thursday (5 February) a 31-year-old man from Hove was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and a 24-year-old man from Brighton has been detained on suspicion of conspiracy to murder.

They are both currently in custody.

Neurosurgery unit to be relocated





2 February 2015

Last updated at 16:21



A neurosurgery unit in Sussex is to be relocated in a plan to put "key emergency services under one roof".

Neurosurgery services will move from the Princess Royal Hospital, in Haywards Heath, to the Royal Sussex County Hospital, in Brighton.

Hospital bosses said they hope the move will allow 350 more patients to be treated in Sussex, instead of London.

Dr Jonathan Andrews, from the Sussex Major Trauma Centre, said the move "will save lives".

The relocation is expected to take place late this year and combine trauma, stroke and head injury services.

Mr Andrews said: "We treat about 500 major trauma patients a year through the Major Trauma Centre and the missing piece in this jigsaw of expert care is neurosurgery.

"A huge amount of work has gone into developing this model of care and planning for the move.

"I am confident that having the highest level of expertise, experience and equipment in one place will help us save more lives."

The service moved to Haywards Heath in 1941 when it was evacuated during World War Two from the National Hospital of Neurology, in Queens Square, London.

A CAR that had been chased by police officers has left the road and crashed into trees.

Sussex Police officers were reportedly pursuing a vehicle through Haywards Heath when the driver lost control and crashed into trees at just after noon this afternoon.

Eyewitnesses said that emergency services were working at the scene to cut the driver out of the car following the crash in Isaacs Lane in Haywards Heath.

A motorist driving in the opposite direction wrote on Facebook group Haywards Heath Uncovered that she saw a "stinger" laid down by officers and the car with three wheels sparking before crashing off the road.

A Sussex Police spokeswoman said a vehicle wanted in connection with burglary was located around 11.20am in Haywards Heath but when officers tried to stop it, the car drove off. 

 

She added: "The car was pursued for a short distance before officers stopped the pursuit owing to its manner of driving.

"The car has continued, however it left the road in Isaacs Lane.

"The road has has been closed while emergency services are on scene."

A South East Coast Ambulance Service spokesman said: "We attended this incident with ambulance crews in three cars and an ambulance.

"A man was assessed and treated at the scene before being taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital.

"He was taken as a priority to hospital for precautionary reasons."
