    A former police officer says having a daughter made him want to protest for climate change.

    John Curran, from Nottingham, a former detective sergeant with the Metropolitan Police, said he was arrested alongside gold medallist Etienne Stott at a protest in April.

    He has not yet been charged in connection with the alleged public order offence.

    He said: "I've got no history in environmental activism.

    "I never expected to be here."

  4. Swan injured in dog attack at Richmond Park

    Police are appealing for witnesses after a swan was seriously injured when a dog attacked it by the Pen Ponds in Richmond Park.

    The five-year old swan is currently on antibiotics after the attack on 8 September.

    It is recovering at the Swan Sanctuary, but will not be strong enough to be released for some weeks yet, the sanctuary said.

    Adam Curtis, assistant park manager at Richmond Park, said: "Apart from the obvious physical damage, dog bites can be incredibly serious due to the risk of blood poisoning.

    "Unfortunately, dog attacks on swans are not uncommon in Richmond Park, and it’s for the reason we have made it mandatory to have your dog on a lead around Pen Ponds.

    "We are deeply saddened that the owner may have witnessed this attack and did not call anyone.

    "Thankfully a member of the public alerted the park office but it’s unclear how long the swan might have been lying there suffering."

    PC Paul Barber, from the Met Police's royal parks operational command unit, said: "Since we updated the signage around Pen Ponds, we have noticed a decrease in the amount of people walking their dogs off leads around Pen Ponds, which is encouraging.

    "However, as this situation demonstrates, when people ignore the rules the consequences can be severe.

    "We are appealing for anyone who might have seen anything to come forward."

    The 'Jodie Chesney Foundation' will formally launch on Sunday afternoon at Dagenham and Redbridge Football Club.

  8. 'Improving' hospital trust needs to focus on emergency care

    St Helier Hospital

    The trust which runs St Helier Hospital in Sutton has improved in the eyes of inspectors but the hospital’s emergency department is still rated ‘requires improvement’.

    The Care Quality Commission (CQC) rated Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust as ‘Good’ overall following an inspection in May.

    Previously it was rated as ‘Requires Improvement’.

    Inspectors found that although there was progress in most areas, the emergency departments at both Epsom General and St Helier hospitals remained as ‘Requires Improvement’.

    But deputy chief inspector of hospitals, Dr Nigel Acheson, said there were examples of outstanding practice in the trust’s maternity service.

    He said: “I was particularly impressed with the standard of maternity care at the trust, which had received a prestigious award."

    But inspectors found in many areas, the environment was not appropriate for the services with old and unsuitable buildings.

    The CQC says these four points need to be addressed urgently:

    • Ensuring there are suitable, safe environments for children and young people presenting with mental ill health to be assessed in the emergency department.
    • Ensuring there are systems for identifying risks to children and young people in the emergency department at St Helier Hospital.
    • Adequate staffing across surgical units at St Helier Hospital to provide safe delivery of care to patients.
    • Better management of medicines.

    Chief executive Daniel Elkeles said: ““We recognise that there are some areas that need further development, and we would like to assure our patients and local communities that we are already working on that, and in fact, have already made some of the suggested improvements.

    “That said, this is a very positive inspection report and I would like to take this opportunity to thank the 6,000 staff of Epsom and St Helier for working so hard, 24-hours-a-day, seven-days-a-week – you are all my heroes.”
