2nd May 2016 6:37pm Minor Accident What To Do by fish5133

Just been involved in a minor rta. Had to brake sharply as car in front did. Managed to stop in time ok but the vehicle behind didn't and bumped into the back of us. No visible damage to either vehicle bumpers but daughter bruised knee on dash and jolted her neck and back as did I.
Seems a bit conflicting about the need to report to police.
In the "excitement" only swopped name and registration as I didn't see any need to claim for damage to vehicle.
Presume its best to notify insurers but what about Police.

2nd May 2016 6:03pm how can this be right by the_pope

A teenager who admitted having sex with a 12-year-old girl was today spared jail because of “exceptional circumstances”.

Kieran Dalton, 19, of Strathlorne Close, Rock Ferry , pleaded guilty to the statutory rape of a child under 13, when he was aged 18.

ADVERTISING

inRead invented by Teads
However, the girl – who said it was consensual – would not make a complaint and the prosecution was based on his admissions.

Dalton, who suffers from ADHD, said the girl told him she was 16, and that when he met her, he “thought perhaps she was only 15”.

Liverpool Crown Court heard a police officer said: “I will accept having met her she doesn’t look 12, but I don’t think she looks 16 either.”

Charles Lander, prosecuting, said the matter came to light when the girl visited a sexual health clinic.

He said she told workers “she had been talking to an older male on Facebook who told her to come to his flat”.

Mr Lander said: “She said she knew he was 18 and mentioned it was all consensual.”

Social services were informed and police visited the girl’s home, but neither she nor her family would give a statement.

Mr Lander agreed with Judge Alan Conrad, QC, that without Dalton’s admissions, “it would have been impossible to launch a prosecution”.

He said there was evidence she made sexually explicit suggestions to Dalton and wanted to meet near his parents’ home.

The teenager said he just intended to watch a film, but “she was all over me, she was kissing me, and then she eventually got on top of me”.

Exterior shot of Liverpool Crown Court in Derby Square
Dalton, who is 5ft 8in, said the 5ft 1in girl never mentioned being at school.

Mr Lander said: “He was very surprised when it was put to him that she was only 12.”

Nicholas Walker, defending, said his client, who has no previous convictions, was immature, struggled in education, social situations and at work, and needed help.

He said: “Probably many people hearing the blunt allegation that he has admitted, that of rape, would, without knowing the circumstances of the offence, be driven to a gut reaction that the defendant must be sent immediately to prison.

“This is really an exceptional case, a highly unusual case, and my submission is that this case need not result in an immediate custodial sentence.

“The defendant said he was gob-smacked, it was stomach churning and he felt sick when we was told of the age of this girl.

“He is somebody who had sex with someone who he was told was 16.”

Judge Conrad said it was an offence that spanned a wide range of culpability, from older “exploitative, predatory paedophiles” to younger offenders like Dalton who have consensual sex with a girl they believe to be older at “the other end of the spectrum”.

The judge said sentencing guidelines allowed for “exceptional cases” where lengthy community orders with sex offending treatment programmes “may be the best way” to change an offender’s behaviour and protect the public.

He said: “I take the view this is an exceptional case.”

Judge Conrad handed Dalton two years in a young offenders institution, suspended for two years, plus a four month home curfew from 9pm to 6am.

He told him to attend a rehabilitation course for 35 days, sign on the Sex Offenders Register for 10 years, and imposed a five-year Sexual Harm Prevention Order.

2nd May 2016 3:05pm Argos recalls five Mamas & Papas car seat models by eddtheduck



High Street chain Argos is recalling five car seat models made by the nursery products brand Mamas & Papas.

It has told parents to stop using the seats "immediately" over safety fears.

It is feared the models may not protect children in the event of a crash, with their shells cracking under impact.

The affected models are Mamas & Papas Mercury Group 1 Black, Mercury Group 1 Grey, Mercury Group 1-2-3 Black, Mercury Group 1, 2, 3 Grey, Mercury Group 2-3 Black and Grey.

Mamas & Papas said no incident had been reported to it related to any of the recalled car seats, which it makes solely for Argos.

In a statement Mamas & Papas added: "We continue to work closely with Argos to determine the exact nature of the issue.

"All Mamas & Papas car seats are tested, certified and approved under the European regulations R44/04 by independent accredited bodies."
'Return for refund'

Argos said in a statement: "We have identified a potential safety concern.

"In the event of an accident the car seat shell may crack and therefore not provide the intended level of protection to the user."

It said that any customers who had bought one of the seats "should immediately stop using the product" and return it to an Argos store for a full refund.

"We wish to thank you for your co-operation and apologise for any inconvenience caused by this recall."

The Argos catalogue numbers of the affected car seat models are 297/7526, 411/9100, 305/6037, 397/9530, and 245/4829. press here for webpage

29th Apr 2016 3:03pm Poll . What to do about dog attacks. by venice

Thought it might be interesting to do a poll to see what the majority of people think we should do about the seemingly increasing number of dog attacks.

Lets take it for granted that we all think its more a case of bad owners than bad dogs, and that we think dog owners and children should be better educated . But, looking at the number of careless stupid dog owners out there who wont take that on board , the present situation is unlikely to change.

This leaves us with three choices , so which one would you go for?

The poll will close next Wed lunchtime . Its anonymous.

28th Apr 2016 5:38pm BIN broken by bin truck. by kenny

Last Friday our green bin was collected by who ever does it for the council. When we went to bring the bin back in the lid and handles had been completely snapped off. Now as we know the bins are pretty tuff and even if it had fallen over it would not have broke, the lid and handle must be in the back of the collection vehicle. I rang council and they said I MUST buy a new one. Why when they broke it. I am disgusted.

27th Apr 2016 8:01pm Jeremy corbyn a terrorist by fish5133

Well according to the wirral globe and the conservative party. 4 page front page feature denouncing corbyn and the labour party as threat to our national security. When do statements like that become libel. Cons must be short on ideas if all they can do is write about the national labour party in a local council election Backfired ....as my son didnt know that corbyn was anti nuclear.

24th Apr 2016 11:28am SUN ELECTRIC - MEA 1500 by turnip

Turnips Dad -

Just bought a MEA 1500 (circa 1987)which has some minor problems. Anyone know where I can find a service outlet.

These were excellent tools in their day and are invaluable for vehicles produced prior to 1995. So when it's up and running and if you have a classic car that needs setting up including multi carbs and injection give me a call.

Selling for a friend. Leather 3 Seater Couch, Beige.
It dips (only very slightly) in between 2 seats, and a small patch of leather has been rubbed off, stupidly by other half after grandchildren got chewing gum stuck to it.
Looks fine with a throw over it over the seating part.
Needs to be gone ASAP to make room for new one.
Will need to collect, and 2 strong people to move it as it is heavy.

22nd Apr 2016 10:00am Does anyone remember the location of the Triangle? by Habdab

Does anyone remember exactly where the old Triangle pond used to be? My memory seems to be playing tricks on me. To the best of my recollection, it was under the roundabout on the M53 by B&Q but when I looked it up on an old OS map and I can't find it where I thought it was. As far as I can remember, it was filled in when the Motorway was built in the 70's, but I'd love to pinpoint the exact site if possible.
Any ideas?

The iconic dance band Shalamar are playing at the Liverpool Philharmonic on the 29th April.

Jeffrey Daniels will no doubt be doing his moonwalk. Unfortunately Jody hasn't played with the rest for a while and Howard is getting past it but well worth seeing just for Jeffrey Daniels and Carolyn Griffey is a credible replacement for Jody Watley.

12th Apr 2016 12:20pm Second Homes Ban by granny

St. Ives are to have a vote, to stop people buying second homes.

Locals say they are being priced out of the market, whilst property owners say they are bringing in much needed revenue from tourists.

It is probably something that affects many places. Maybe a better idea would be to allow a set number for second homes or alternatively give the vendors the option of either selling to locals or selling to a second home owner.

Not sure if that would work, but it must be infuriating to live with. Londoners spreading their wings again, to other peoples green and pleasant lands, hey Casper ?

10th Apr 2016 5:44pm Alternatives to SKY? by Uffda

Does anyone have any experiences with alternatives to SKY? I currently pay £30 for a digibox (subsidised) and the variety package. They have just told me that it's going up by £2 per month which is not a lot but makes me think that I'm paying too much for what I get. I don't want any movie or sports channels just basicish entertainment. Just want to put on the TV and watch whatever is on rather than selecting from a huge menu of available programs to stream. Any thoughts would be most welcome.

Absolutely no idea which PCC I will vote for. Jane Kennedy has done a reasonable job but it could be bettered by the right person, if there is one.

A bit undecided on councillor, too many of current labour group have lost the plot so its probably looking like I'm voting green - but I'm not ruling out UKIP yet.
