  2. Hampshire tip charge introduced for non-residents

    People who don't live in Hampshire and use the county's tips will be charged £5, after proposals put forward by Hampshire County Council were approved.

    The new proposals, which will be enforced from April next year, include the installation of automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) barrier system at the Household Waste Recycling Centres.

    This will allow free access for vehicles registered to Hampshire addresses.

  3. Implement 'put through letterbox' in Calcot burglaries

    An implement was put through letterboxes to commit three burglaries in Calcot, Berkshire, over the course of two weeks.

    Thames Valley Police said the tool was used to open the handles of doors from the inside, and believes three incidents on 18, 19 and 27 October are linked.

    On the 27th, an Audi A6 was stolen from a property on Hawkesbury Drive after someone broke in and stole car keys.

    Electrical equipment was also stolen in another burglary, while in another a homeowner disturbed the intruders.

  4. Family pay tribute to 'devoted father' after A35 crash death

    The family of a man who died in a car accident on the A35 in Dorset have paid tribute to "a fun-yet-caring soul that lived to experience many memories".

    Stephen Faley, 45, from Weymouth, died on 16 October on the eastbound carriageway of the bypass between the Northbrook Interchange and the Tolpuddle Ball junction.

    His family said in a statement: “Steve was a devoted father to his son and daughter and a loving husband.

    "He was very proud of both children, and worked as a plumber with many customers in south Dorset."

  5. Hampshire resident permits 'to rise by 240%'

    Resident parking charges are set to rise by as much as 240% across Hampshire.

    The increased fees, confirmed by Hampshire transport bosses, will see people who live in Winchester having to pay an extra £30 a year for permits, rising from £22 to £50. Residents in Romsey and Andover, will be billed £37 more per year, with a cost of a permit growing from £15 to £52.

    In Southampton, which runs it's own parking scheme separate to Hampshire, residents will have to pay £30 year for a permit.


    Hampshire Transport Chief Councillor Rob Humby said residents have told the authority a "well maintained network" is a priority, and the authority needs to ensure as many resources as possible go into that.

    The changes will take effect from next April.

  9. TVP officer "touched" by comments from Glen Hoddle's family

    The man who helped saved Glenn Hoddle's life after he had a heart attack said he feels "very touched" by comments from the former England manager's family.

    Sound engineer Simon Daniels used CPR treatment to keep the former England manager alive after he collapsed at BT Sport's studios on Saturday.

    Daniels, who is also a special constable for Thames Valley Police, said his first-aid training "kicked in" leaving him no time to worry if Hoddle, 61, would survive.

    Thames Valley Police said CPR skills are part of the force's training programme provided to officers in our Special Constabulary.

    A spokesperson added: "The force is very proud of his actions."
