News from Nick Palmer

Nick Palmer (former Labour Party MP) Writes:  Many of us who liked Greg Marshall’s campaign style in the 2017 election will be glad to hear that he’s been selected by Labour (with 92% of the membership supporting him) to stand next time. Broxtowe is one of the first seats in Britain to select its Labour candidate, reflecting the closeness of the result last time. With luck the Greens will swing behind Greg this time, making it closer still. Continue reading

Friends jailed over double fatal A52 race crash

Bramcote residents will recall this tragedy and the aftermath, including Tony Smith’s petition to introduce traffic calming measures. Many previous associated articles can be read here.

Today, the two survivors were jailed for their part in this reckless act. The following is taken from the Nottingham Post – click here for the full article.

The four men were in two cars racing each other at “frightening” speeds on the A52 near Nottingham, a court heard.
One of the cars, a Honda, smashed through a central reservation and into the path of an oncoming lorry, killing Gurdip Singh Kareer, 41, and driver Kyle O’Connor, 22, instantly.
Latham Wilbraham and Kyle Bennett, in the other car, were both given six year jail terms at Nottingham Crown Court.

Bramcote Hills park height restriction barrier

Following the problems with Travellers earlier in the year Broxtowe Borough Council are fitting a height restriction barrier at the Car Park to Bramcote Park off Ilkeston Road.

This will allow cars and vehicles under 2 metres in height unrestricted access, but will stop larger vehicles and caravans etc. The car park will remain open 24 hours. I am told that the Emergency Services have keys to such Barriers.

The post will be in a few days to let the concrete set, then the top will be attached and left in an open position for a short while. A sign will go up to warn people and the barrier will be moved across after a certain date.
