  1. Good to see West Mercia Police & Crime Commissioner, John-Paul Campion out on the streets with Hereford Police last night.

  4. Police activity will be taking place at a location in Gloucester for a number of weeks following a recent discovery. Photograph courtesy of BPM Media On Friday 7 May officers were called to a café in Southgate Street by a production company filming a documentary. They reported how they had found possible evidence to suggest a body could be buried within the property. Detectives attended and the Major Crime Investigation Team has deemed that further assessments are required in order to determine whether an excavation is necessary. In the past, people have linked the building to the disappearance of Mary Bastholm. Mary was 15-years-old when she was reported missing on 6 January 1968 and she has never been found. Mary's disappearance had also previously been linked to serial killer Fred West and there was suspicion he was involved in her death. Family Liaison Officers have now been put in place to provide support and updates to Mary’s family as enquiries continue. Investigating officers expect to be at the location, which is at The Clean Plate café, for a number of weeks.Assistant Chief Constable Craig Holden said: Anyone who has any new information relating to the disappearance of Mary Bastholm can report this to Gloucestershire Constabulary online by completing the following form and referencing incident 99 of 11 May: https://www.gloucestershire.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/cor/tell-us-about-existing-case-report/ The Force still has documentation and information from the original enquiry into Fred West and therefore anyone who submitted information previously does not need to do this again.
  5. There is a large Police presence tonight on Holme Lacy Road in Hereford. The road is currently closed at the roundabout near to the Co-op due to an ongoing incident. There is a large Police presence at the scene and a silver Hyundai is parked with its hazard lights flashing within the police cordon. There is an object on the road in front of the Hyundai which the Police have covered with plastic sheeting to preserve as possible evidence.
  6. 25 electric bikes will be whizzing their way across West Mercia following investment from the PCC. In a bid to make police more visible and accessible to communities and reduce the impact of policing on our environment, Police and Crime Commissioner John Campion allocated £25,000 to fund electric bikes for policing teams across West Mercia*. The bikes will enable officers to police harder to reach areas, such as town centres, alleyways and river and canal paths. The bikes will also help improve police visibility as they tackle community concerns like anti-social behaviour and drug use.PCC John Campion said:
  7. A woman suffered minor injures after an assault in Pamona Place Hereford on Saturday night. Police and Fire crews were called to the scene. West Mercia Police said;
  8. At around 12.20pm on Friday 29 January officers received a call notifying them that a woman was in cardiac arrest at her home, in Pembridge, and was believed to be the victim of an assault. Upon arrival, officers found the woman to have suffered a serious injury to the head and had sadly died at the scene. A man aged 57 has been arrested on suspicion of murder and has been detained under the mental health act. Detective Chief Inspector Dean Jones said:
  9. A West Mercia Police Specials Officer came across an RTC last night outside Leominster, minutes after it happened. The driver lost control going too fast through the flood water. It is important to slow down and be extremely cautious in this weather!
  10. Keith Brown, aged 55, from Blakes Lane, Guarlford in Malvern, was sentenced today (Wednesday 16 December) at Worcester Crown Court, to 10 years and 8 months in prison extended for 3 years to serve on licence for raping an 83 year old woman in her home. Brown pleaded guilty on Monday 14 September to the rape which happened in the early hours of Thursday 13 August. He was also given a restraining order not to contact the victim for life. Detective Inspector Tony Garner said: "This was a despicable offence on an elderly and defenceless victim. Following the report of the incident we mobilised every resource at our disposal from detectives to dogs teams in order to catch a vile sexual predator. All those involved in the investigation worked tirelessly to quickly apprehend Brown and in doing so we have prevented further people potentially becoming a victim to him. “My hope is this conviction and sentence will provide some measure of closure for the victim who is an extremely brave and courageous woman. It will also reassure a local community and act as a warning to anyone else considering offending in this manner that West Mercia Police will not rest until you are caught and brought to justice.” Anyone who is a victim of any sexual assault and feels they may need support can contact West Mercia's Victim Advice Line. It is a free, independent and confidential support service. People can call 0800 952 3000 or visit www.victimadviceline.org.uk and do not have to have reported the offence to the police. To report a crime like this, phone the police non-emergency number 101 (always call 999 in an emergency). If you'd like to give information anonymously - without leaving your name or identifying details - you can do so by phoning the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. Crimestoppers also has an anonymous online form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org
  11. It may be the season of good will but please consider that everything may not be as it seems. In recent weeks Hereford Cops (Hereford city SNT) has seen an influx of Romanian Nationals who are begging and claiming to be homeless and hungry. On making enquiries the Police have established that these individuals are part of a travelling group of beggars from South Wales. Police have also today removed 3 Romanian nationals from the City Centre again claiming to be homeless and begging. CCTV tracked these individuals to a waiting vehicle where they were spoken to and established they are all housed in Boston, Lincolnshire and have travelled to Hereford to beg. Please!!!! If you want to give money to the homeless please consider doing so through a registered charity otherwise you should consider that your “donation” to some of those on the streets may not be used for the purpose it was intended.

  19. Disturbing seeing rubbish being left on the hills, commons & car parks of Malvern Hills Trust land. If you can't leave it the way you find it then politely consider staying away and not spoiling it for others. Malvern Cops spotted a few youths having a BBQ and made to tidy up. More people were also removed from Gullet Quarry yesterday. Details of those breaking Malvern Hills Trust bylaws taken for potential enforcement. The owners of the disgusting amounts of rubbish left behind couldn't be identified. What is wrong with some people? First of all people shouldn't be having BBQ's particularly with all of their dry weather we have been enjoying these past few months and it is forbidden on Malvern Hills Trust land. There are been many field and bush fires reported recently across the county by Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service including another one just today! Crews from Evesham, Ledbury, Pershore, Tewksbury and Worcester have extinguished a barn fire at Bredon near Tewksbury involving 50 hay bales.
