    Writing on Twitter, Carole Butler said eight hours of orthopaedic surgery had gone well with facial surgery due on Monday and then hand surgery on Tuesday.

    She says all things being well, the 23-year-old rugby league player will be transported by air ambulance back home to an intensive care unit in the not too distant future.

    The rugby league player, who's contract with Salford Red Devils was terminated earlier this month, broke multiple bones when he fell from an airport car park in Ibiza on Sunday May 19.

  2. County lines number 'switched off' in force first

    A telephone number used by a suspected county lines gang has been blocked after officers applied for a court order.

    Drugs

    Humberside Police sy the number was being used by a gang operating from the Merseyside area to tip off drug users about where to buy crack cocaine and heroin in Grimsby

    As part of the force's Operation Hamilton, which aims to disrupt county lines and organised crime groups, a Drug Dealing Telecommunications Restriction Order has been granted to switch off the number so it can’t be used again.

    It’s the first time that such an order has been applied for by Humberside Police.

    Quote Message: Basically, this number was used as almost a ‘call centre’. Drug users would contact it to make arrangements to buy drugs and be directed where to attend and at what time, to meet with the dealer. This order stops that phone number being used or reactivated. Put simply if they can’t contact each other, they can’t deal drugs.” from Det Insp Phil Booker

    A total of 120 extra car parking spaces were also planned for the site.

    More than 460 people had written in support of the plans according, but Bradley Parish Council, along with 147 objectors, had raised concerns over noise, traffic, light pollution, anti-social behaviour and over-intensification of the site.

  13. East Yorkshire councillor in 'anti-Islam' tweet apology

    An East Yorkshire councillor has apologised after it was reported he'd compared Islam with Nazi bombing raids on Britain in a Twitter post.

    A Conservative Party rosette

    Nick Coultish, who was elected to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council for the first time earlier this month, "repeatedly made anti-Islam comments online," according to an article posted by BuzzFeed.

    The 21-year-old today issued an apology for "off the cuff comments I made years ago at the time of terrorist attack in the UK".

    In a statement, he said: "These comments were made before university at a low point for me, I was upset and grieving and trying to make sense of the lives lost.

    "My comments were wholly reactionary and unthoughtful, I was referring to radical Islamic extremism, of course, not real Muslims who are peaceful and live with British values.

    "I was young, not yet involved in politics in a big way and naive. I'm sorry for any confusion or any offence my historic tweets caused."

    Cllr Coultish, from Goole said he has since deleted the comments, which were posted in 2017, adding that they were not made "in a professional capacity".

    Earlier this week, the Muslim Council of Britain formally asked the UK's human rights watchdog to investigate accusations of Islamophobia in the Conservative Party.

    The British number one, 24, trailed 7-6 (7-3) 6-3 2-1 when he shook hands with world number 47 Cuevas.

    "You don't want to stop because you feel like you're quitting, but sometimes you have to," he said.

    Edmund, from Beverley, said he is managing a long-term problem, but believes he does not need surgery.

    "There have been a few times this year I have carried on and nothing got better and sometimes a bit worse," he added.

    "It won't need surgery right now. If it did I wouldn't be playing, I'd get it sorted straight away rather than delaying the inevitable."
