  1. A man from Malvern has been jailed for sexual offences involving children. Richard Webb, 34, of Moat Crescent, was sentenced to nine years in prison at Worcester Crown Court yesterday (Thursday 2 December). He will be placed on the sexual offenders register for life and will have a three-year extended licence period. His offences took place in the Hereford area between 2006 and 2019 and involved incidents where the victims were between the ages of 8 and 14 at the time of the offences. He also met with a child and committed sexual offences following a period of grooming and possessed extreme pornography. Detective Constable Leah Lowe said: “This investigation was highly emotional and I’d like to recognise the courage of the victims who came forward. “This man groomed and abused his victims and this sentence is reflective of the suffering and misery he caused. " West Mercia Police take all complaints of sexual abuse very seriously and I hope this case gives the public confidence to come forward and report any incidents of concern whether recently or in the past" “We act on all reports we received an offer victims our full support.” If you have been affected by crime and need support, you can contacted the Victim Advice Line: The Victim Advice Line is a free and confidential service for victims and anyone who has been affected by crime and needs support.

  2. 📣 £1000 Reward Worcestershire antiques business Holloways is offering a substantial reward for information leading to the recovery of a £9,500 life-size bronze lion stolen from its courtyards. Aslan has been guarding Holloways Garden Antiques courtyards in Suckley for the past five years. Overnight on Thursday, a gang broke into the family business and lifted the 300kg bronze sculpture over a 6ft spiked metal fence before escaping across the fields. It is thought it would have taken at least six people to lift the hefty cat, which measures 2.3m long and 1.2m high and weighs as much as a pony. Bought from a private house sale in Leicestershire, Aslan has one paw half raised and dates back to the mid-20th century. Since 2016, the £9,500 bronze has cut a striking figure in Holloways courtyards and was much-loved by staff and customers alike. Now Edward Holloway, who has run furniture and antiques business Holloways with his wife Diana for the past 30 years, is offering £1,000 for information leading to the distinctive lion’s recovery. “We’re incredibly upset that Holloways has been targeted and that Aslan has been taken,” said Edward; “We’ve always struggled to move him around our premises and we’re absolutely astonished they managed to lift him over the fence. “Thursday night was cold, dark and wet, and both Aslan and the ground would have been slippy. “It would have taken six, maybe more, people to lift him and it’s highly likely they had a 4x4 to get back out across the fields without getting stuck. “Someone must have seen something. Someone must know something.” Edward fears the much-loved bronze was either stolen to order, or may already have been sent to be melted down – for a fraction of its value. “We’re offering £1,000 for information which leads to Aslan's recovery,” Edward added. “Please do get in touch with the police on the numbers below. “This was a pretty audactious theft. Rural crime is escalating and the perpetrators need to be caught.” The NFU Rural Crime Report 2021 shows theft in the countryside cost the UK an estimated £43.3m last year. The insurer blames “skilled and highly-organised criminals” for the continuing plague on farms and other rural businesses. West Mercia Police is investigating. A spokesman said: “Anyone with any information or who may have seen the statue for sale is asked to visit https://www.westmercia.police.uk/tua/tell-us-about/ quoting reference 300 of 29 November.” Alternatively, call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
