  • Do you know what the four biggest dangers are for drivers?

    This week officers have been stopping motorists in Oakham to raise awareness of the ‘Fatal 4’ – the four most likely causes of fatal road collision.

    More than 30 vehicles were stopped during the road safety operations which took place on Friday 20 November and Wednesday 25 November at Burley Road car park.

    PC Paul Le Pla, from Rutland South Dedicated Neighbourhood Team said: “The four most likely causes of fatal road traffic collisions are drink driving, speeding, driving while on a mobile phone and driving without a seat belt.

    “Unfortunately even though the risks are well published, people continue to break the law while driving.

    “We will continue doing these operations on a regular basis in the hope to save the lives of people who insist on breaking the law.”

    Officers were stopping vehicles that were observed committing any of these four offences, along with drivers without valid insurance or tax, or vehicles carrying scrap metal without the required licences.

    In total 32 vehicles were stopped, with the following results:

    • 8 for driving while using a mobile phone
    • 20 for driving while not wearing a seat belt
    • 2 for having no MOT test certificate
    • 1 for no insurance
    • 1 for a defective headlamp

    All drivers found to be committing an offence were issued with Traffic Offence Reports.

    Further road safety clinics are planned throughout the year.

  • A soup-er day in Braunstone

    An innovative new project to help keep people in Braunstone healthy, safe and secure has been launched at a 1940s tea party.

    Braunstone Blues is a team of people that has been set up to help reduce demand and repeat calls to emergency services in Braunstone.

    The team of five were officially introduced to the community at a 1940s tea party earlier today (Thursday 26 November).

    The tea party, held at the Oak Centre, Bendbow Rise, with the theme of how to stay warm this winter for the over 55’s and attracted 115 local residents.

    The event started in style as residents were welcomed by 1940s singing and dancing in a room decorated with bunting and props from the era. Guests were later served soup and a roll by members of the team, who wore 1940s emergency services uniform.

    Braunstone Blues is a small team of staff from blue light services Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service, Leicestershire Police and East Midlands Ambulance Service aimed at reducing the demand placed on emergency services in Braunstone.

    Assistant Chief Constable Phil Kay said: “This was a great way to introduce this new innovative team. We need to work with community groups and partners to find better ways to protect communities from harm and to help to reduce demands placed on the emergency services. I can already see that this team has made a real impact on the residents and visitors to the Braunstone estate. In working together we are able to find solutions to problems that, in former times, would never have gone away.”

    Braunstone Blues was set up earlier this year following research showing that Braunstone Park and Rowley Fields Ward generated the highest amount of emergency calls for all three of the blue light services for Leicestershire. Their aim is to create a healthy, safe and secure community by educating and directing residents to appropriate services, by making sure homes are safer using a free home visit service and delivering appropriate campaigns and to reduce the number of emergency calls they receive.

    The tea party was about getting the community together in a fun way to educate them on key health and home safety messages that affect older people particularly during the winter.

    Andrew Brodie, Assistant Chief Fire and Rescue Officer, who officially opened the event said: “This is a fantastic and exciting new initiative. The fire service has been tremendously successful in reducing demand, and fire deaths and injuries. This has largely been due to 15 years of work to educate members of the public and businesses of how to prevent fires and other incidents. We can share this experience with our partners and together work more effectively than ever, to make people of Braunstone and beyond healthier, safer and more secure.”

    During the tea party guests were encouraged to speak with members of the Braunstone Blues team. The team also promoted their home visit scheme and encouraged residents to book a free 30 minute visit where they will give advice and information on home and vehicle security, safety in the home, fire and child safety and health and wellbeing.

    Hot water bottles with tips on how to keep warm this winter were given out to those that booked a home visit. Braunstone Blues are advising older residents of the following winter warmer tips:

    • keep living rooms to 21°C (70°F) and the rest of the house heated to at least to 18°C (64°F)
    • don’t block up air vents as fires and heaters need ventilation
    • wear layers of clothing to keep warm and wear shoes with good grip to avoid slips and falls
    • draw curtains at dusk to keep the heat in
    • eat at least one hot meal every day and drink plenty of hot drinks
    • use a hot water bottle to keep you warm, but be careful when filling it up
    • make sure you get your flu jab free on the NHS
    • stay active with gentle exercise
    • visit your pharmacy early for advice about coughs and colds
    • stay in contact with friends and family and make sure they are warm and well

    Tim Slater, EMAS Divisional General Manager and Paramedic added: “We welcome the opportunity for us to be involved in this project aimed at keeping the community safe and well, building on our good track record of keeping people out of hospital where appropriate.”

    Geoff Stagg, a Braunstone resident attended the 1940s tea party, he said: “This has been an excellent tea party bringing the three services together. The officers dressed in traditional uniform brought some flare to the event and the singing and dancing has been wonderful. A lot of elderly people really appreciate events like these.”

    Braunstone Blues would like to thank B-Connected and Leicestershire and Rutland Community Foundation for providing the funding and making the event possible.

  • Man sentenced after pleading guilty to manslaughter

    A 34-year-old man has been jailed after pleading guilty to manslaughter.

    Sanchez Zampaladus, of Earl Howe Street, Leicester, appeared at Leicester Crown Court today (Thursday 26 November) where he was sentenced to four years in prison after admitting the offence at an earlier hearing.

    It follows an altercation which happened in Market Street, Leicester on Friday 5 June, 2015, where 26-year-old, Clarke Allred was punched twice in the face.

    He had been on a night out in the city when he was involved in an altercation involving Zampaladus who then attacked him. Clarke sustained serious head injuries and was taken to the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham where he subsequently died on Tuesday 9 June.

    Zampaladus was arrested shortly after the incident and was originally charged with inflicting grievous bodily harm, following Clarke’s death that charge was changed to manslaughter.

    Detective Chief Inspector Jonny Starbuck was the senior investigating officer during the investigation, he said: “Zampaladus’ actions that tragic night led to the death of a young man and devastated a family, thankfully they have been spared the ordeal of going through a lengthy trial.

    “This has been a deeply distressing incident for Clarke’s family, they have shown immense courage throughout the investigation and subsequent legal proceedings, we hope that the conclusion of those proceedings today (Thursday 26 November) will help them to move on with their lives.”
