Plans for Fishborne Wightlink terminal announced

The entrance to Wightlink's Fishborne terminal is to be revamped in a bid to ease traffic queues.

The ferry company is proposing to remodel the entrance to create three lanes of traffic entering the port to help marshalling traffic for each sailing.

Chief Executive Keith Greenfield and Head of Business Operations Sean Millward unveiled the plans at a packed Fishbourne Parish Council meeting on 14 August 2017.

Wightlink said it hoped to have the new system in place for the arrival of its new ship Victoria of Wight in summer 2018.

We always try our best to be good neighbours but recognise that sometimes customers queuing for a ferry along Fishbourne Lane can inconvenience local residents. Now our £45million project to invest in future services and build a new ship for the route is almost completed, we want to look ahead to see how we could improve our systems further.”

Oxford Crown Court
Google

A man has admitted to impersonating a courier to trick an elderly women out of thousands of pounds.

Ahmed Hussain, 21, pleaded guilty to one count of fraud by false representation at Oxford Crown Court this morning.

He pretended to be a courier and asked a women for £5,300 between 29 June and 2 July.

Thames Valley Police said the charge related to an incident in which an anonymous caller phoned the women claiming to be 'Sergeant Collins' from Hammersmith Police Station and asked her to withdraw money.

A defence barrister said Mr Hussain had no previous convictions and was of good character.

His role was minimal and he had been paid £50 to knock on the door and ask for money, his defence added.

Mr Hussain will be sentenced at Oxford Crown Court on 19 September.

Southampton v West Ham: MOTD Commenator's Notes

Mark Scott

Match of the Day commentator

"After this week's takeover deal was completed, previous owner Katharina Liebherr wrote an open letter to Saints fans referring to Jisheng Gao's plans to follow the 'Southampton way'.

"Unfortunately, it was business as usual on the pitch last weekend, as they drew a blank at home for the sixth league game running - but there were signs of a more adventurous style of play than the one which so frustrated supporters under Claude Puel.

"It's likely a lot of teams will be spanked at Old Trafford this season, but the basic mistakes and manner in which West Ham wilted late on will be a concern for Slaven Bilic.

"He'll be delighted to have Michail Antonio back for a game that will be a much better barometer for the Hammers."

Rare birds of prey breed for first time in 45 years

Marsh harrier
Peter Gasser

Rare birds of prey have bred for the first time at Titchfield Haven National Nature Reserve.

A pair of marsh harriers has raised two chicks in reed beds at the reserve for the first time since the haven was established in 1972, and only the second time marsh harriers have bred in Hampshire since 1957.

The adult marsh harriers have gradually been spending more time at the reserve near Fareham and last year practised their nest building skills.

In early April, they were seen performing sky-dancing manoeuvres as they courted, before beginning to collect and carry sticks for their nest.

Finally on an early, misty morning in late June, two newly fledged young were seen leaving the nest and taking to the skies over the haven’s reed-beds.

Dorset's Jurassic Coast is one of the county's key features

Dorset has come second in a list of top ten places in England and Wales offering the best quality of life for pensioners, a study has suggested. West Sussex topped the list.

Prudential looked at a range of data including disability-free life expectancy, access to healthcare, crime levels, pensioner populations, healthy lifestyles and the weather to make the findings.

Stan Russell, a retirement income expert at Prudential said: "Counties like West Sussex and Dorset may be attractive because of their low crime rates or the quality of their health care. However finding the right spot to live in such popular locations can be tricky."

Oxfordshire came sixth on the list, and the Isle of Wight came in at number eight.

Oxford is known around the world for education but in one area of the city fewer than 10% of pupils go to university

Fewer than one-in-ten pupils in Blackbird Leys, Oxford, is going on to higher education.

It's one of the worst rates in the country and compares poorly with the centre of Oxford, where three quarters of students at state schools will go to university.

Niall McWilliams, head of Oxford Academy in Blackbird Leys, would like admissions departments to place greater emphasis on the background students come from taken.

He suggests pupils from schools like his could be offered places with lower grade demands than would be expected from pupils from private schools.
