Guilty plea from Towers as Smiler victims attend court

BOSSES at Alton Towers have pleaded guilty to charges brought by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) over last year’s Smiler crash.

Two young women lost a leg in the crash, which saw several people seriously injured when the carriage they were riding in collided with a stationary cart on the rollercoaster.

The injured riders attended the hearing at North Staffordshire Justice Centre, where resort  owners, Merlin Entertainments, entered a guilty plea to an offence under the Health and Safety at Work Act.





Vandals destroy trees planted for Queen’s 90th birthday

ORNAMENTAL trees planted ahead of HM The Queen’s 90th birthday were destroyed less than a week after being installed.

Vandals targeted the trees - worth around £600 - just four days after they were planted.

Now a kind-hearted resident has offered to replace the trees for the benefit of the community.

The nine blossom trees were bought by Forsbrook Parish Council and planted at the Jubilee Gardens by the parish lengthsman on Friday 15th April. Anyone who witnessed the vandalism, or who has information about the crime, can contact Staffordshire Police on 101.

UTTOXETER based charity, Global Lifeline, will be able to continue its vital work to support local women recovering from the devastating effects of domestic abuse, with the help of a £45,000 grant over three years from Lloyds Bank Foundation.

The local charity provides a refuge for women who are fleeing abusive relationships and offers them access to support and skills training to help them rebuild their lives. Global Lifeline will use its new grant to support the salaries of its House Manager and Support Worker, who will help the charity support women move towards safer, more secure lifestyles.
