Scam – Take care when purchasing vehicles online.

Message sent by    Action Fraud (Action Fraud, Administrator, National)

Fraudsters have been advertising vehicles and machinery for sale on various selling platforms online. The victims, after communicating via email with the fraudster, will receive a bogus email which purports to be from an established escrow provider (a third party who will keep the payment until the buying and selling parties are both happy with the deal). These emails are designed to persuade victims to pay upfront, via bank transfer, before visiting the seller to collect the goods. The emails also claim that the buyer (victim) has a cooling off period to reclaim the payment if they change their mind. This gives victims the false sense of security that their money is being looked after by this trustworthy third party, when in fact it is not and the money has gone straight to the fraudsters.  Continue reading

A Message from Greg Marshall – and an Invitation!

Nick Plamer writes: Greg has asked me to pass on this message:

Dear all,

Just a short message to say thank you to everyone who took the trouble to vote in the election, and of course especially to those who gave me their support. During the short campaign, I was able to meet thousands of constituents and I hope they found it as rewarding as I did. I really enjoyed talking to as many of you as I could and I learned a great deal. I look forward to building on that as we work to prepare for the next election, which in view of the emerging chaos in Downing Street seems likely sooner rather than later. Continue reading

Poppies: Weeping Window

A section of the iconic poppies which surrounded the Tower of London in memory of fallen soldiers, have been installed down the side of the Silk Mill Tower, at Derby’s Silk Mill Museum, to form part of the Weeping Window, a nationwide tour.

The installation, which is made up of several thousand ceramic poppies, was created by Derbyshire’s Paul Cummins and captured the world’s attention back in 2014 when they were gradually unveiled at the Tower of London to mark 100 years since the start of the first World War.

The installation will be free for all and will run from Friday 9 June until Sunday 23 July.

Catch the i4 to Derby city centre, the Silk Mill is a short walk away.

Councillor Richard MacRae writes: Having been made aware Travellers were setting up on Bramcote Park, I called the Leader of Broxtowe Borough Council to make him aware then drove up there myself.

I was soon joined by Bramcote Councillor Martin Plackett and the two of us spoke to the Travellers.

They have told us they will be staying until 12-2pm on Saturday. But one of them said they will be staying for a week.

We have been told the Legal Officers from Broxtowe Borough Council are on the way yo serve them a notice to move.

If I get an update I will let you know.
