Something to make people smile

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-57087274

A county court judgement has been registered against Boris Johnson's name for an unpaid debt of £535.

The court order, which names Mr Johnson, of 10 Downing Street, was made on 26 October, according to a database of judgements.

The creditor and nature of the debt are not included in the database record, which was first reported by Private Eye magazine.

Downing Street has been contacted for a comment.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Cycle lane in Madeira Drive fenced off after reports it is 'dangerously slippery'

Image

CYCLISTS have been warned not to use a new lane yet after reports it is "dangerously slippery".

Brighton and Hove City Council has been installing a protected two-way cycle lane on the south side of the carriageway in Madeira Drive over the past few weeks.

The council said the new lane will replace the pavement cycle lane to “create additional space for pedestrians”.

However cyclists have reported slipping and skidding on the new lane, and pictures show water pooling on its green surface after rainfall this week.

Writing on Twitter, Paul Batchelor said he had seen cyclists leaving the new lane in favour of the old one, and described the lane as "dangerously slippery".

He shared photos and wrote: "You can see water is beading like on the paint of a freshly waxed car, suggesting it is impervious and as such not an appropriate surface for bikes or pedestrians crossing."

Conservative councillor Robert Nemeth said he was also aware of the dangers on the new cycle lane.

Cllr Nemeth, who represents Wish ward, said: "A theme throughout this cycle lane roll-out process has been the complete lack of interest from Green and Labour Councillors in important features of the project.

"This has seen disabled residents treated appallingly, pollution levels undoubtedly rising, and now cyclists being put in harm’s way.

"A cursory cycle along the seafront lanes, which I have done many times, highlights all sorts of dangers.

"I’m surprised that no coalition councillor has done this.

"If you put an impermeable surface on such a flat road, the water will just sit on it and it won't be predictable for cyclists either. It's a fundamental design issue."

A spokeswoman for Brighton and Hove City Council said the Madeira Drive cycle lane has been fenced off as it is "not ready for public use".

She said: “We would like to remind cyclists that the new cycle lane on Madeira Drive is not ready for public use yet and is barriered off.

“We will be carrying out final tests, including skid resistance, on the new cycle lane before we open it.

“Please do not use it until then.”

Ah the dangers of Fresh greasy SMA many an accident comes from that but it uses less tar of course which is pricey

and while we are on the subject of Brighton

Bomb threat at Brighton station

A man has been arrested by police after making bomb threats at Brighton Railway Station.

Sussex Police were called just before 04:00 BST on Sunday to reports of a man making threats and claiming to be in possession of an explosive device.

The station was temporarily closed and a cordon set up as a safety precaution while officers searched the area.

A 27-year-old man, who was not in possession of an explosive device, was taken to custody for questioning.

A disgruntled cyclist perhaps

Melton (well Long clawson) cheese brings down major drug dealer

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-merseyside-57226165

drug dealer was tracked down after sharing a photo of Stilton cheese.

Carl Stewart, 39, was identified through his fingerprints after police analysed the image he posted in an online chat.

He was jailed for 13 years and six months after admitting conspiracy to supply heroin, cocaine, ketamine and MDMA at Liverpool Crown Court.

The dealer, of Gem Street, Liverpool, was also sentenced for transferring criminal property.

Stewart posted the photo on the encrypted messaging service EnrcoChat, which had been cracked by police.

Det Insp Lee Wilkinson, of Merseyside Police, said he went by the name Toffeeforce and was involved in supplying large amounts of drugs.

The detective said "his love of Stilton cheese" ultimately led to his downfall after his palm and fingerprints were analysed and it was established they belonged to Stewart.

I bet he was "cheesed off about that" :lol:

Cambridgeshire Police said officers stopped a Ford Fiesta in Huntingdon at about 18:00 BST on Wednesday.

An 18-year-old man and a 45-year-old man, both from Huntingdon, were arrested after they failed roadside drugs tests.
Both men have been released on bail while investigations continue.
