    A man has pleaded guilty to trafficking five people into the UK with a view to exploiting them.

    At Derby Crown Court Miroslav Bily admitted five counts of arranging or facilitating the travel of another person with a view to exploitation.

    The 51-year-old, from Sinfin Lane in Derby, brought the five men to the UK from the Czech Republic. They were employed in a garage, restaurant or did painting and decorating. Bily gave them nothing, or next to nothing, in cash.

    He will be sentenced at Derby Crown Court on 11 December.

    Quote Message: He didn’t seem to be using the men’s wages to fund a lavish lifestyle, it appears that he was using the money to pay off his own debts and to sustain him and his family day-to-day. Meanwhile, his victims were receiving little or no money at all for the work they were doing.” from Det Con Laura Sanders Derbyshire Police

    A football supporter has been banned from matches for five years for racially abusing an opposition player.

    Griffin Park

    Christopher Boyes, 32, a Derby County supporter, admitted shouting racist abuse at a Brentford player during the Rams match at Griffin Park in September.

    At West London Magistrates' Court, Boyes, of Totton, Southampton was also ordered to pay £100 compensation and told to carry out 200 hours of unpaid work.

    PC Roger Brown, from Derbyshire Police's football unit, said: "I was on duty at the fixture and was saddened and abhorred to hear that a so-called Rams fan had racially abused a player.

    "Derby County prides itself on its multi-faith and cultural fanbase and this kind of behaviour has no place in society, never mind a football ground."

    This was the second time firefighters were attacked in Leicester over the Bonfire Night weekend following a similar incident in the Thurnby Lodge area.

    Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service said their firefighters are subject to these attacks "every year" but have previously decided not to report them.

    They said it's becoming a "national issue" with other fire and rescue services reporting similar attacks.

    Quote Message: These cowardly offences prevent our crews from being able to do their job safely and efficiently. When our crews are subjected to these assaults, our ability to do our job is impacted, delaying our provision for other, potentially life-threatening, emergencies.” from Chief Fire and Rescue Officer Steve Lunn Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service
