  7. Oxford University starts sexual violence service

    Radcliffe Camera

    Oxford University says it's stepping up the specialist support it offers to students who have experienced sexual assault or harassment.

    It says the improvements show that it does not tolerate sexual harassment of any sort, and set it up following recommendations made by its sexual violence working group in a report.

    The service will act as a "central point of advice for the university, which all colleges can direct their students".

    It launches in the autumn to coincide with the new academic year.

    All black cabs in Reading will have to take card payments by next year.

    Reading Borough Council's licensing committee approved the installation of electronic payment devices in all Hackney carriages after recent requests from members of the public.

    The new conditions come into force next January.

    Tony Page, lead member for strategic environment, planning and transport, said: "A growing number of people no longer carry cash and only use card payments on a day to day basis.

    "It makes sense therefore to require all licensed black cabs in Reading to offer their passengers this choice of payment going forward."

    RSPCA staff have helped a Muntjac deer which was trapped on the sixth floor of the Madeira Road multi-storey car park in Bournemouth.

    Animal collection officer Sue Brooks said: "This was a first for me and I was amazed to find this little muntjac on the sixth floor at the top of a multi-storey car park.

    "With the help from my colleagues, Insp Patrick Bailey, who prevented people entering the car park and Insp Tina Ward who acted as a backstop, I was able to walk the deer all the way down to the entrance.

    "Inspector Bailey then held the traffic to allow her to safely go on her way - quite a relief as these are nervous animals and there was the risk that the deer could get spooked and injure itself."

    A 28-year-old man from Kent was arrested on suspicion of failing to provide a specimen of breath, dangerous driving and failing to stop, and is in police custody.
