RISE IN VEHICLE FIRES
A leading fire safety officer said lives could be put at risk by a dramatic increase in malicious vehicle fires in Haverhill.
Mark Taylor, Suffolk’s community fire safety practitioner, said the rise in such fires was causing the town’s firefighters to waste too much time and could end up delaying them reaching more serious incidents when lives are at risk.
A woman who lost her job at a Haverhill factory and was then escorted off the premises by her own husband won her case for unfair dismissal at an employment tribunal.
Julie Muir lost her job at Label Converters in a round of redundancies and was then escorted off the premises by her husband Andrew at the request of more senior management.
The tribunal found that there was no need to make redundancies as quickly as been done.
The principal of Linton Village College, Clive Bush, reflected on one of his toughest times during his nine year headship after a 15-year-old student drank half a bottle of vodka during a school trip.
The student was not allowed back to the college.
