  2. 'Obsessive' man jailed after sexual images threat

    An "obsessive" man, from Hertfordshire, who threatened to post sexual images of a teenage girl on the internet has been jailed for 13 weeks for breaking a court order linked to a suspended sentence.

    Mathew Mallaghan, 21, of Bishop's Stortford had been ordered never to contact the girl and was told he would be jailed if he did so when he was sentenced at St Albans Crown Court in June.

    But within three months he was again sending the girl social media messages where were described by his lawyer as a bid "to establish some kind of relationship" and not intended to be a threat.

    Judge Andrew Bright QC said "the effect has been to cause the girl great distress and anxiety".

    Mallaghan, who had been living at the YMCA, admitted breaching the terms of the restraining order, breaching the suspended sentence and failing to attend court on 30 January. He had already spent five weeks in jail and described the experience as "difficult and isolating".

    Defending, Corinne Bramwell said Mallagan had difficulty dealing with his "obsessive" behaviour and suffered "a terrible sense of guilt' for what happened.

  3. Family pay tribute to woman killed while walking dog

    The family of a woman who was killed while walking her dog in Newport Pagnell have spoken of their "tragic loss" in a tribute to her.

    Ann Waters

    Ann Waters, 64, died when she was struck by a grey Vauxhall Mokka on Westbury Lane at 20:05 last Friday. She was walking her dog with her daughter at the time.

    In a statement released by Thames Valley Police the family said: "No words can ever express the sorrow and heartbreak we feel as we try to come to terms with the untimely and tragic loss of Ann Waters, our beautiful, selfless mother, wife, sister, auntie and great auntie.

    "She was kind, had the biggest heart, and always put everyone else before herself."

    A man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by careless driving while over the prescribed alcohol limit in connection with the crash.

    He was later released under investigation.

  4. Luton Mall to fight Hatters' stadium finance plan

    The Mall, Luton

    The owners of Luton's Mall have said they now support a new football stadium in the town centre but would continue to strongly oppose plans to fund it with a retail park.

    The Mall's owner's Capital and Regional had said in 2016, when plans were submitted, that relocating Luton Town FC to Power Court could lead to "social issues" on match days.

    Its new chief executive Lawrence Hutchings said: "I think the stadium could bring some great things for the town centre in terms of regeneration."

    But he added 2020 Development's plans to fund the ground by creating Newlands Park, a retail and leisure site at junction 10 of the M1, would swamp the market at "a tough time for the High Street".

    "There are alternate uses at Newlands Park or other sources of funding - we could pitch in with funding to plug the gap," he said.

    Luton Town FC chief executive Gary Sweet said the company's decision to challenge the plans regardless was "disrespectful" ahead of a meeting of both parties.

  6. Rail safety boost after passenger gets trapped in moving train door

    New safety guidelines are to be published by the Rail Accident Investigation Branch (RAIB) after a passenger attempted to board a train at a Hertfordshire station and got trapped in a closing door.

    The incident happened at Bushey station at about 21:25 on Monday, 26 March. The train started and had moved 30 yards ( 27m) before being stopped. The passenger remained upright but sustained a minor injury to their arm, an accident report said.

    Bushey station

    "We have undertaken a preliminary examination into the circumstances surrounding this incident," an RAIB spokesman said. "Having assessed the evidence which has been gathered to date, we have decided to publish a safety digest which will be available on our website."

    The RAIB website said: "We could never hope to investigate every accident that is notified to us, the law gives us discretion about whether or not to investigate less serious accidents."

    When deciding to investigate an accident the RAIB consider the severity of the outcome, potential for the consequences to have been more severe, the potential for new safety learning, and how widely it could be applied and safety trends or areas of particular safety concern.
