  2. Caterpillar warning on Isle of Wight

    Brown tail moth caterpillars

    Isle of Wight residents have been warned to be wary of brown-tail moth caterpillars, which have been spotted in Ventnor.

    The island's council said people should avoid handling them, because their hairs can break off as barbs, causing skin irritation and breathing difficulties.

    Lee Matthews, recreation and public spaces manager, said: "They can cause skin and eye irritation, especially in children."

    He added: "We are working closely with Ventnor Town Council and local businesses to manage this year’s influx but if you are unlucky enough to have handled the caterpillars, you may experience a rash together with irritation similar to a severe nettle rash."

    The offender is a man in his early 20s and is about 5ft 6ins tall. He is slim and was wearing a dark-coloured hooded top.

  4. Woman, 80, has £1,000 stolen by fake gardener

    An 80-year-old woman had £1,000 stolen by a man pretending to be a doorstep trader, Hampshire Constabulary said.

    She called a number on a flyer she had received for "Tree and Garden Services", because she wanted to have her patio re-laid.

    A man came to her house in Andover on 12 April and, when she went to make him a cup of tea, he left with the cash she had withdrawn.

    Insp Chris Taylor said: "This is a terrible crime taking advantage of the trust of a vulnerable lady."

    The force is offering advice on doorstep sellers on its website.

    A Hampshire woman says she fears seeing the man who murdered her three children, after he was cleared for release from prison.

    David McGreavy killed Elsie Urry's children, Paul Ralph, four, Dawn, two, and nine-month-old Samantha at their Worcester home in 1973.

    He would be subject to exclusion zones, including where Ms Urry lives in Hampshire, but she said she could bump into him elsewhere.

    McGreavy, who was dubbed the "Monster of Worcester", was 21 at the time of the murders and was the family's lodger.
