  1. A police officer has been injured and two people arrested during a republican march in Glasgow. https://www.standard.co.uk/news/uk/police-officer-injured-missiles-bloody-sunday-march-a4344506.html
  2. Today, I was at my local speedway match and I parked my car on the pavement with only 2 wheels up on the kerb, and there was enough room for people with buggys and disabled people to still use. When I came back out of the stadium to get into my car there was a piece of paper on my windscreen, took it off and looked at it which states "Please respect the roadway when parking Local Police have been in attendance".The note isnt from the police themselves just the speedway company. I know that 4 wheels on the pavement is a no-no,and there is no single or double yellow lines, there is no sign to say no parking and nothing to say that the council has been given these new powers to stop cars parking on pavements. so I'm a bit confused as to how I done anything wrong. Can someone please help/explain and its in glasgow. Thanks
  3. The Scottish Police Federation (SPF) has said a violent incident in Glasgow raised questions about whether officers can protect the public. SPF chairwoman Andrea MacDonald said it was "deeply worrying" that no armed officers were dispatched. The attacker in Thursday's incident injured two people before inflicting fatal injuries on himself. Police Scotland has insisted that the incident did not require the presence of armed officers. One of the victims of the attack was reported to be in a stable condition in hospital with injuries to his shoulder and arm. The other victim, a community warden, was allowed home after treatment. Ms MacDonald said: "Had the assailant been intent on harming large numbers of the public, he could have done so with impunity and the police would have been largely powerless to stop him. "Whilst not detracting in any way from the courage of the police officers who attended, the fact no armed officers were dispatched to a man attacking others with knives and an axe should be deeply worrying. "Glasgow is a city with an almost permanent armed police presence but they were not dispatched and they did not attend." She added: "This lays bare the myth that the service adequately risk-assesses incidents prior to deploying resources and that as a service we are capable of protecting the public from spontaneous incidents of extreme violence." The SPF annual conference - last month - heard calls for all officers to carry Tasers and for there to be an increase in the number of armed officers. Police Scotland has rejected these calls and stressed the value of retaining a largely unarmed police service. Assistant Chief Constable Wayne Mawson said: "Police Scotland, along with the rest of the UK, prides itself in being an unarmed service with access to specialist firearms support whenever required. "Yesterday's incident in Glasgow city centre was a dynamic and fast-moving incident. Local officers responded rapidly and contained and dealt with it quickly. "This was not a random attack. It was planned and targeted, and armed officers were not required to attend on this occasion." Detectives have appealed for information about what they said was a "targeted" and pre-planned attack. The incident has been referred to the Police Investigations and Review Commissioner (PIRC). http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-39604233

  5. Activists have accused officers from Police Scotland of a " brutal response" to protests held against the removal of a Kenyan man by Home Office services in Glasgow. Full Story - CommonSpace The protestors are complaining about the police tactics, but forget to mention that is was their own appaling behaviour which led to the police response. What did they expect to happen when they tried to block in the van?
  6. Police are dealing with a "serious incident" in Glasgow where a bin lorry is understood to have crashed into a group of pedestrians. Local reports say the lorry mounted the pavement and crashed into the side of the Millenium Hotel in George Square. The Daily Record newspaper says the accident happened as a crowd of Christmas shoppers were waiting to cross the road outside Queen Street station. There are understood to be fatalities and the casualties are estimated to be in double figures. The crash took place in George Square, Glasgow As many as six ambulances are at the scene, along with the police and fire service. A Police Scotland spokesman confirmed there is an "ongoing serious incident" in Glasgow's George Square close to Queen Street Station. Roads surrounding George Square, in the city centre, have been closed. A witness told Sky News that the whole of Queen Street has been cordoned off and emergency services are arriving by the minute.
  7. PILOT error was not to blame for the Clutha helicopter crash, it is understood an interim report into the disaster will reveal. Preliminary findings on the tragedy point the finger at faulty fuel gauges aboard the police helicopter as the likely source of the accident. Three crew members and seven people on a night out died when the Eurocopter EC135, operated by Bond on behalf of Police Scotland, plummeted onto the roof of the Clutha Vaults pub in Glasgow on the night of November 29, 2013. It had been returning from a routine operation when, according to eyewitnesses, it "dropped like a stone". The report goes some way to explaining why two vital fuel switches came to be turned off shortly before the crash. It also sheds light on a worldwide safety alert issued by Eurocopter to operators of the same model that crashed in Glasgow, saying that a problem with the low fuel level warning system had been discovered in a number of aircraft. The warning, issued in December less than two weeks after the crash, came after an air ambulance, one of its 22 aircraft leased in the UK, was found to have a fuel indicator problem. Tests found others also had the same fault. The initial investigation by the the Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB) found that the Eurocopter EC135 suffered double engine failure as a result of fuel starvation. The aircraft had 76kg of fuel in its main tank but none of the fuel was reaching the engines because the key transfer pumps had been switched off. As a result fuel could not ­transfer from the main tank into the two supply tanks, which in turn pump fuel to the left and right engines. The switches which control the pumps are located in the cockpit ceiling to the rear of the pilot and can only be turned off manually. The fact that fuel switches were turned to the off position was previously said to be the "smoking gun" behind the tragedy, as they control the flow of fuel to the engines and were both supposed to be on throughout flight. It suggests that the pilot may have been trying to reset the system after being tricked into thinking there was a problem with the fuel supply. The AAIB report on February 14 stated that there was zero fuel in the right supply tank and just 400g in the left supply tank at the time of impact. It noted that "in the latter stages of the flight, the right engine flamed out, and shortly after the left engine flamed out". A series of low-fuel warnings were also recorded during the flight. Along with pilot David Traill, PC Tony Collins and PC Kirsty Nelis were on board the helicopter and were killed in the crash. The seven customers in the Clutha who lost their lives in the accident were John McGarrigle, Mark O'Prey, Gary Arthur, Colin Gibson, Robert Jenkins, Samuel McGhee and Joe Cusker. A spokesman for the Air Accidents Investigation Branch, which issued the interim report, said: "This report is not the final report and we will not be commenting at this stage." http://www.heraldscotland.com/news/home-news/pilot-error-not-the-cause-of-clutha-crash.125428877
