The reactions have been very positive and supportive. As a result of the operation we hope to see a decrease in the number of driving offences being committed within the Stoneygate area.” Throughout the day 23 TOR’s were issued, with the following results:

    • 15 x Driving without a seatbelt
    • 5 x Exceeding the speed limit,
    • 1 x Child passenger not wearing a seatbelt,

  • Can you help identify these two men after stabbing in Leicester?

    CCTV images of two men have been released after a 15-year-old boy was stabbed in Larch Street on Sunday 5 April.

    The victim was walking along Larch Street, just off Uppingham Road, at about 10.15pm with some friends when they were approached by three men and assaulted.

    The victim sustained stab wounds to his body and was taken to the Leicester Royal Infirmary. His friend, aged 17, intervened and sustained a knife injury to his face and was discharged from hospital after treatment.

    Detective Constable 2117 Eliot Burgess is investigating the incident, he said: “The victim has subsequently been discharged and is continuing his recovery at home.

    “From enquiries we’ve conducted so far it’s believed the three men came from the direction of Forrest Road and approached the victims in Larch Street where the assault took place, they made off on foot through the alleyways towards Uppingham Road.

    “If you recognise the men in the images or you have any suspicions about who they may be then please come forward, even if you’re not sure we would still like to speak to you as we can quickly eliminate people from our enquiries.

    “Officers have carried out enquiries locally to identify any potential witnesses but would still like to speak to anyone who hasn’t yet spoken to officers and can assist with their enquiries.

    “If you were in the Larch Street area around 10.15pm on Sunday 5 April please get in touch.

    “If you’ve heard rumours locally about who may be responsible or have any information which can assist the investigation the please get in touch and call 101, quoting crime reference number NE/1513/15-1.”

  • Police volunteers address speeding issues

    Police volunteers have been addressing speeding issues across the county this week.

    In line with the TISPOL (European Traffic Police Network) Euro Speed Campaign, Leicestershire’s Police Support Volunteers have been carrying out a number of tasks to support the campaign including speed checks and helping organise events to raise awareness.

    As speed is the key factor in most fatal and serious collisions, the campaign aims to get the message across to drivers that speed kills.

    Following the concerns of speeding in certain areas, the deployment of Police Support Volunteers has been tailored to tackle this key factor.

    PC Nathaniel Lockley has been impressed with the contribution volunteers have made throughout the week, and said: “Everyone has worked tirelessly to combat speeding which is such a pressing issue in most communities. All our volunteers made an amazing effort to reassure local people that police are listening to their concerns and working to make a difference.

    “Driving at 40mph in a 30mph limit quadruples the chance of a pedestrian dying after an accident. We must make sure people are aware of the consequences of speeding.”

  • Statement from an alleged victim of historic sex abuse

    The following is a statement made by one of the 25 individuals who claimed to have been assaulted in Leicestershire between the 1960s and 1980s and whose claims were investigated by Leicestershire’s Police Operation Enamel enquiry.

    The man has expressly requested that Leicestershire Police make his statement publicly available.

    In describing today’s decision as “a disgrace”, he said:

    “This animal is still being protected because [of his status] and isn't able to stand trial. They say that it's not in the public interest, but isn't it in the public interest to know what his victims have gone through at the hands of this man?

    “If he was an everyday person with a normal life and job, justice would [have] been served, but as it stands we victims are just being pushed to the ground again and walked over.

    “Let someone feel the pain and suffering that I've endured and still going to endure for the rest of my life. It's not a case of being found guilty or going to prison - it's about being believed after so long being told that we were lying. Justice needs to be served.”

    Ends.
