(LONDON) ONS Integrated Data Report: Has launched the first stage of the Integrated Data Service (IDS), a cloud-based platform giving analysts and researchers greater access to data from a range of sources #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.27: Launching next spring, a public beta will open the door for accredited researchers outside of government to use the new service: The private beta version will allow a selection of government analysts to compare and combine data held by the ONS and other departments, helping to unlock the full potential of data, inform policy decisions and encourage collaboration across government…..

#AceDailyNews says according to ONS Report: Launches ‘Integrated Data Service’ (IDS) to boost government collaboration on data sharing….

The three projects selected for the private beta and will focus on some of the government’s top priorities:

  • wage growth – an ONS and HM Treasury collaboration will investigate in detail how wages change across the country, helping inform the government’s “Levelling Up” policy agenda
  • energy efficiency – working with the Valuation Office Agency to provide better information on the energy efficiency of homes around the country as part of wider work to help measure the UK’s progress towards reaching net zero by 2050
  • regional issues – a collaboration with Department for Business, Energy, and Industrial Strategy to analyse how text from local news sources across the UK can be used to understand concerns of communities around the country

DCMS Minister for State Julia Lopez said: “The Integrated Data Service is a crucial part of our National Data Strategy and will make it easier and quicker for policy makers to access robust evidence for making the decisions that can improve the lives of people across the country.

“Unlocking the power of data will boost the economy, create jobs and help us build back better from the pandemic.” 

Joanna Davinson, Executive Director at the Central Digital and Data Office, said: “The Integrated Data Service will provide the public sector with secure access to high-quality data for better research and analysis.

“This is aligned to our vision of having increased availability of data for decision-makers to ensure more data driven policies. In this way, we can enable transformation of the Government’s use of data and support the delivery of efficient public services for users.”

Alison Pritchard, Deputy National Statistician for Data Capability, said: “The Service demonstrates how data held, managed and accessed in a trusted and secure environment can benefit us all by providing essential insight on social and economic factors. I am particularly looking forward to engaging widely to explain how we are protecting the data appropriately and making sure it is put to use for the public good.”

(LONDON) Insulate Britain Report: They have resumed protesting after a 10-day hiatus, with its environmental activists blockading major roads in the capital to demand that PM Boris Johnson and his government insulate the country’s homes #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.26: Footage uploaded on Twitter showed police attending to activists near Southwark Bridge, some of whom had glued their hands to the road. One law enforcement officer warned a demonstrator that he would “use force” to move her if she did not remove herself from the path.

A total of 61 members of Insulate Britain made their return on Monday by obstructing busy streets in the capital at Limehouse causeway, close to Canary Wharf, Liverpool Street and Southwark.

Another video showed members of the movement sitting across a busy junction, bringing a halt to traffic, including several buses, as horns sounded and sirens flashed.

Other clips showed a driver attempting to get through the activists as one protester stood with his hands on the front of the car while members sat behind him with the group’s logo. Protesters were then dragged out of the way by civilians, only for them to shuffle back into their original places.

In a statement released on the same day confirming their return, one activist lashed out with accusations that the government “is actively following a path that will lead to the death of millions,” saying this is “genocide.”

He went on: “If you know this and are not joining nonviolent civil resistance then you are complicit. We can’t be bystanders. Short-term disruption or genocide – that’s your choice.”

Insulate Britain announced earlier this month it would take 10 days off ahead of the United Nations COP26 global conference and urged Johnson to use the event to show that he is dedicated to “taking responsibility” for tackling climate issues.

The campaign to insulate Britain’s homes, deemed an integral part of reducing carbon emissions, continues despite court injunctions, under which activists risk imprisonment or unlimited fines for their protests on major roads.

(LONDON) Fuel Prices Report: Petrol prices have hit 142.94p a litre, their highest level to date, according to the RAC motoring organisation #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.26: The RAC said the increase was partly due to a doubling of the oil price since last year. Some analysts believe the oil price could rise further: The price of unleaded petrol has jumped by 28p a litre since last October, the RAC said, meaning it now costs £78.61 to fill a family car…..

#AceDailyNews says according to a BBC Business Report: Fuel prices were last around this level in April 2012: It is now £15 more expensive to fill up an average family car than a year earlier, said the RAC, which called the new high a “dark day for drivers”.

Petrol image

“This will hurt many household budgets and no doubt have knock-on implications for the wider economy,” a spokesman for the RAC said.

The organisation said that other costs, aside from oil, had also pushed up fuel prices. 

Retailers had increased their profit margins by 2p a litre from around 5.5p in April last year to 7.5p a litre. 

The RAC said retailers, particularly the smaller, independent ones, were trying to rebuild their profits after the steep fall in sales prompted by the first UK lockdown in spring last year. 

In addition to this, the ethanol component of unleaded petrol was doubled to 10% last month in the more eco-friendly E10 fuel, but as ethanol is more expensive than petrol, that added about 1p a litre.

Duty paid on fuel is currently 57.95p a litre, more than the cost of the combined bio and petrol components, which amount to around 50p. 

VAT, currently around 24p a litre, is applied on top of all other elements of the petrol price, including duty and the retailer’s profit margin. 

Petrol and diesel cars are slowly being phased out as part of pledges to tackle climate change.

The government says it will ban the sale of these from 2030. 

The introduction of the E10 fuel as standard this summer is also part of that drive.

The Department for Transport says bringing in this new fuel could cut carbon emissions by 750,000 tonnes a year, the equivalent of taking 350,000 cars off the road.

(LONDON) Old Bailey Court Report: Three men have been convicted of the killing of a 23-year-old man who was fatally stabbed in Haringey in May last year #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.26: Abdul Gaffer, 25 (09.05.96), of Grangefield, Marquis Road, pleaded guilty to manslaughter on Thursday, 23 September.

#AceDailyNews Court Report: Three men have been convicted following the ‘fatal stabbing’ in Haringey in 2020: Tyrese Annan, 20 (23.02.01), of Sterling Road, Tottenham and Mizuki Brown, 25 (23.04.96), of Margery Street, WC1, were found guilty of the manslaughter of Jemal Ebrahim after a three-week trial at the Old Bailey on Friday, 22 October: They will be sentenced at the Old Bailey on Tuesday, 26 October.

[Victim: Jemal Ebrahim]

CASE NOTES: The court heard police were called to Russell Road, N15, on 13 May 2020 to reports of a stabbing: Jemal was found seriously injured and was treated at the scene by LAS medics. He was then taken to a north London hospital where he later died from his injuries: A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as a stab wound to the leg after his femoral artery was severed: It was the prosecution case that Brown and Annan arrived at the scene in a silver Nissan Qashqai driven by Gaffer on a ‘ride-out’ intent on attacking any member, or perceived member, of a rival gang: CCTV footage showed that Jemal was chased into an alleyway between Braemar Road and Southey Road. He was chased out of the alleyway by three youths, at least two of whom were armed with large knives: At least two of the youths caught up with him and then ran off. CCTV captured three men running back towards the silver Nissan Qashqai and then getting in, before it rapidly left the area. It was the prosecution case Annan and Brown were involved in the chase and stabbing and Gaffer was the driver of the car: CCTV analysis tracked the movement of the Nissan, which stopped in Effingham Road, N16. Brown, Annan and Gaffer were all then identified walking along streets in this area a short time later: All three were arrested and charged in connection with Jemal’s death on 15 June 2020: Five days after Jemal’s killing, in an apparent ‘tit for tat’ act of violence, Chad Gordon was shot dead on the Wiltshire Gardens Estate, just off Green Lanes. At least one of the gunmen involved in the shooting was a friend of Jemal Ebrahim. Chad was the victim of mistaken identity and had no gang links whatsoever.

Detective Inspector Andy McDonald, said: “Jemal Ebrahim was a young man who was endeavouring to make the best of his life. Having gone to China to study business and learn their language. He had a bright future ahead of him. He had returned to the UK and his return to China was hampered by Covid restrictions. Sadly, he was befriended and exploited by other young men in the locality who were embroiled in an all too common problem within our great city – postcode ‘gang’ wars. Where sadly, Jemal paid with his life as a result of the unprovoked, violent and indiscriminate actions of those that have been found / pleaded guilty: Young men who were prepared to drive to a neighbouring part of London in a vehicle armed with large knives. This stupid, pointless and cowardly attack resulted in several revenge ‘tit for tat’ incidents, where shots were fired before the tragic murder of Chad Gordon: This has been an extensive and diligent investigation by my team. However, we have been unable to positively identify and bring to justice two other men who were in the vehicle used by the attackers, and are equally as guilty. Whilst I am pleased that these verdicts can bring some closure to Jemal’s family, this investigation is not over.

“If anyone has any information that can lead to the identity and conviction of these individuals can I urge you to contact 020 8358 0200quoting Operation SCHOLES or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 where your information will be treated in the strictest confidence.”

(LONDON) JUST IN: The National Living Wage is set to rise from £8.91 per hour to £9.50 in the Budget on Wednesday #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.26: The government has come under pressure to help low-paid employees and younger workers, who are among the worst hit by the #COVID19 #pandemic.

#AceDailyNews says according to BBC Business Report: National Living Wage set to rise to £9.50 an hour in the budget on Wednesday: This is a 6.6% increase in the minimum wage for all those aged 23 and over – more than twice the current 3.1% rise in the cost of living: It will take effect from 1 April next year.

Coffee shop worker

Chancellor Rishi Sunak said the increase “ensures we’re making work pay and keeps us on track to meet our target to end low pay by the end of this Parliament”. 

But Labour’s shadow chief secretary to the Treasury, Bridget Phillipson, described it as an “underwhelming offer” that would be mostly swallowed up by tax rises, universal credit cuts and higher energy bills.

Minimum pay rates for younger workers are also set to go up. 

The National Minimum Wage for people aged 21-22 will rise from £8.36 to £9.18 an hour and the Apprentice Rate increases from £4.30 to £4.81 an hour.

Minimum wage increases from 1 April:

  • National Living Wage for over-23s: From £8.91 to £9.50 an hour
  • National Minimum Wage for those aged 21-22: From £8.36 to £9.18
  • National Minimum Wage for 18 to 20-year-olds: From £6.56 to £6.83
  • National Minimum Wage for under-18s: From £4.62 to £4.81
  • The Apprentice Rate: From £4.30 to £4.81

The minimum wage that workers should get depends on their age and whether they are apprentices.

The National Minimum Wage is the minimum pay per hour to which almost all workers are entitled. 

The National Living Wage is higher than the National Minimum Wage. It applies to workers who are 23 or older.

Employers often worry that a higher minimum wage will lead to more unemployment, as they will be forced to lay off workers in order to afford the increases.

But independent experts maintain there has been little or no evidence of job losses as a result of rising minimum wage levels.

About half of the two million jobs paid at this level are in retail, hospitality, cleaning and maintenance. 

This time last year, there were concerns that hard-pressed small businesses would find it difficult to afford such rises. 

Firms are already saying price rises will be passed on to consumers, but this bit of inflationary pressure was mostly baked in to the system, says the BBC’s economics editor, Faisal Islam.

The government has already committed to put the National Living Wage on a pathway to well over £10 an hour, or more formally two-thirds of typical wages, and thus to “abolish in work poverty” by 2024, our editor adds.

He says the government will claim that this makes up for cuts to universal credit, but although the cash increase is impressive, much will be gobbled up by rising prices and it is not necessarily the same people in receipt of both.

Giving millions of workers a 6.6% pay rise sounds generous and will be a welcome boost to many pay packets.

It also follows the government’s – and particularly the prime minister’s – narrative of pushing towards a higher-wage economy.

Yet this would be no bumper pay day for low-income families.

They spend a higher proportion of income than others on heating and lighting their homes. Hefty gas and electricity bill rises, on top of recent increases this month, are inevitable in the spring. Prices in the shops are going up and many economists believe the increases could last longer than previously expected.

Finally, a National Living Wage rise is not compensation for welfare cuts, such as a removal of the £20-a-week universal credit uplift, as the Institute for Fiscal Studies has consistently pointed out. 

Not all of those receiving benefits are in work, and for low-income employees who are, a rise in wages can mean a reduction in their benefits.

The move comes as households face an economic squeeze from the soaring cost of energy and rising consumer prices.

The Bank of England’s chief economist, Huw Pill, has warned that UK inflation is likely to hit or surpass 5% by early next year, leading analysts to predict that interest rates could go up as early as next month.

Chancellor Rishi Sunak is also eager to begin balancing the books after the strain of financing pandemic emergency measures, with higher taxes likely to be in the offing.

Measures to trim public spending have already begun with the end of the £20-a-week temporary increase to universal credit payments, which was brought in at the start of the pandemic and withdrawn again earlier this month.

(LONDON) Snaresbrook Crown Court Report: A woman who was sexually assaulted by a neighbour who cared for her is urging other victims of abuse to come forward #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.25: On Wednesday, 13 October, Susan Turner, 56 (02.11.64), of Pevensey Gardens, Hockley, appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court where she was handed a two-year suspended sentence after previously being convicted of four counts of sexual assault: She was also ordered to do 150 hours of unpaid work, was placed on the Sex Offenders Register and barred from working with vulnerable people indefinitely….

#AceDailyNews Court Report: A woman has been sentenced for four counts of sexual assault and sentenced to 2yr-suspended-sentence and 150-hours of unpaid work and placed on the ‘Sex Offenders Register’ together with banned from working with vulnerable people ….

Woman sentenced for four counts of sexual assault

Detective Constable Chris Maxim, who led the investigation, said: “Turner completely abused the trust that had been placed in her and her actions have had a huge impact on both the victim and her family: The victim in this case came forward because she didn’t want anyone else to suffer in a similar way. She encourages anyone else who may have been subject to similar abuse to report it: We know that many victims of abuse are too afraid to speak to us and fear they will not be believed. Others are physically unable to speak out about this abuse themselves: We hope that this conviction shows we are here to listen, we will take any reports seriously and we will provide the necessary specialist support to those that need it.”……..Turner’s offences, which took place in Hornchurch in September 2019, came to light when the victim, aged in her 40s, disclosed them to her parents via an iPad she uses to communicate: An investigation was launched by the Met’s East Area Public Protection Unit and Turner was later charged: Specialist officers supported the victim and worked with the court to ensure that the victim was cross examined on video away from the court room – the first time this had been done at Snaresbrook Crown Court.

DC Maxim, added: “The victim in this case was extremely brave to come forward and tell us what happened. We recognise that can be an extremely difficult thing to do but she wanted to share her story so that others in a similar position know they too will be taken seriously.

“Anyone who wants to speak to us should call 101 or can report online via our website.”

(LONDON) Essex Police Ant-Slavery Day Report: Tens of thousands of people enter Essex every day using Stansted Airport, our ports, roads and rail network: Our transport hubs are vital for our day-to-day lives, but are also used by criminals to traffic people against their will #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.23: They may be threatened with violence, forced into debt they will never be able to pay back, or threatened with deportation by those exploiting them: Many of the victims are attempting to escape poverty and support their families.

#AceDailyNews reports on Essex Anti-Slavery Day: Modern slavery sees individuals trapped in jobs where they may be paid little or no money, are unable to move around freely because they have their documents taken from them and have no means of escape.

The two most common forms of modern slavery are forced labour – often working on farms or construction sites – and sexual exploitation, where men and women are coerced into prostitution.

In 2019, there were 10,000 potential victims of slavery identified in the UK.

To mark Anti-Slavery Day (Monday 18 October), officers have been working alongside partner agencies at Stansted Airport to alert travellers to the signs of modern slavery and human trafficking (MSHT) and tell them who to contact if they suspect it’s taking place.

This follows on from Project Aidant, which saw coordinated police work at Stansted, Harwich Port and in and around the M25 where automatic numberplate recognition was used to track vehicles suspected of involvement in MSHT. Lorry drivers were also leafletted at Birchanger Services.

Anti-Slavery Day Stansted Airport 18 Oct (2).jpg

Officers and Border Force at Stansted Airport on Anti-Slavery Day

Detective Constable Mark Ghosh is a field intelligence officer at Stansted and the force’s lead for MSHT.

Mark works alongside the Border Force, the Home Office, and the anti-slavery charities Justice and Care and A21 to safeguard victims.

Mark’s team regularly meet incoming flights to and speak to passengers who, either by their behaviour or the possessions they bring into the country, display some of the tell-tall signs of being controlled.

He said: “Modern slavery happens is a lot closer to home and more often than people may think. A common theme with sexual exploitation is that the victim has met a boyfriend or girlfriend online through Instagram or Snapchat, and has only spoken to them once on FaceTime.

“They have one conversation with this person that purports to be in love with them and suddenly they’ve ended up in the UK for the first time with a phone number on a piece of paper. That happens surprisingly often.

“With forced labour, we tend to find the recruitment is done through social media and the victims knows nothing about the pay or where they are meant to be staying.

“But potential victims will not engage with us unless we explain what is going on. We’re there to help them, not to question their immigration status.”

Mark quoted an example of a woman from Eastern Europe who chose not to engage at the airport but later told police she’d been trafficked.

Mark said: “A female came to our attention on an inbound flight. It was winter but she was wearing only a small amount of clothing. She also appeared confused and dazed.

“A male appeared next to her and it became immediately clear that he had control of her documents and was doing all the speaking for her.

“We engaged with her and she said she’d met the man online and was in love with him. They’d been travelling across Europe and had come to settle down in the UK.

“She had no phone, no credit or debit card, her family weren’t aware she’d travelled to the UK and she didn’t know where she was going. When Border Force searched her bag, she only had lingerie and stilettos.

“As a result, we took her back to Border Force, explained we were there to safeguard her and explain why we were concerned about her travelling with this man.”

The woman decided to continue her journey, but a follow-up call from Metropolitan Police officers was arranged at the address she headed to.

“They (the officers) visited the address several hours later,” Mark said. “The man was seen discarding drugs which gave them the power to enter the property. At that point she asked her help, and said she was being trafficked.

“Not only did she ask for help, she identified another brothel where there were other people working who were then safeguarded.”

It was later revealed the man, a Romanian, was trying to pay off his godson’s christening by trafficking the woman around Europe. He was convicted of controlling prostitution and trafficking, and deported.

(LONDON) #MigrantCrisis Report: Campaign across Britain will target freight drivers to lock their vehicles securely and report any suspicious activity in effort to stop people smuggling #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.23: Lorry drivers across Britain are being urged to lock their vehicles and report any suspicious activity that could be linked to people smuggling, in a joint appeal being led by the National Crime Agency and Border Force.

#AceDailyNews reports on a new campaign appeals to lorry drivers in crackdown on people smuggling in a push, in partnership with Crimestoppers and the Home Office, will come two years after 39 Vietnamese migrants were tragically found dead in the back of a lorry in Essex, having been smuggled into the UK in 2019…..

The campaign will target freight drivers across England, Scotland and Wales with messaging at service stations and ports, on how they can help stop what is a dangerous and illegal way into the UK.

The NCA alone has around 50 ongoing investigations linked to organised immigration crime and since the start of the year, has been involved in more than 140 arrests.

Disrupting the criminal networks behind people smuggling is a priority for UK law enforcement and operational activity has led to many of these journeys being stopped and people safeguarded.

The tragedy that took place in Grays, Essex on 23 October 2019 highlighted just how perilous this method of entry into the country is.

The NCA continues to work with its partners to raise awareness of the impacts of people smuggling and are encouraging people working in the transport sector to recognise when something isn’t right, and to report it.

New posters and leaflets launched on Monday [25 October] will make it clear to drivers exactly what they should look out for, including; security breaches at ports, unexpected route diversions from drivers on shift and unusual behaviour at the rear of vehicles.

Drivers will also be encouraged to secure their vehicles and report any instances where they have been approached by someone offering opportunities to earn extra cash.

Any suspicion, no matter how small it may appear at the time, can be reported anonymously to CrimeStoppers on 0800 555 111, or in an emergency, the police by dialling 999.

NCA Deputy Director Andrea Wilson said: “Stopping people smugglers and preventing further loss of life, is of the utmost priority for the NCA and its partners: The tragic events that took place in Essex two years ago have remained front and centre of our minds in tackling this issue and continue to inform our operational activity: We cannot emphasise enough how crucial information from those in the transport sector is, and hope this renewed drive gives people the confidence to report any suspicious activity to the authorities.”

Border Force Chief Operating Officer Steve Dann, said: “The Grays tragedy revealed the terrible dangers people face being hidden in the backs of lorries by criminals who put profit over safety without a care for who they hurt: Border Force work tirelessly to search, find and stop people being smuggled into the country using every tool at our disposal and on both sides of the border: This campaign encourages our haulier community to secure their vehicle and to be the eyes and ears on the roads reporting anything they think is suspicious – together with the NCA, we are determined to bring an end to this heinous trade in people smuggling.”

(LONDON) Southwark Crown Court Report; A 22-year-old man has been found guilty of murder and grievous bodily harm with intent after a teenager was ‘fatally stabbed’ in broad daylight at Crossharbour DLR station last summer #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewReport – Oct.23: He received 27 years for murder, eight years for grievous bodily harm with intent and 12 months for possession of an offensive weapon, to be served concurrently: A 22-year-old man has been found guilty of murder and grievous bodily harm with intent after a teenager was stabbed to death in broad daylight at Crossharbour DLR station last summer.

#AceDailyNews Court Report: Mohammed Hoque, 22, and of Manchester Road, London, has today (21 October) been sentenced to 27 years imprisonment by a judge at Southwark Crown Court: He’ll be sentenced on Friday 8 October…

CASE NOTES: Mohammed Hoque, 22, and of Manchester Road, London, has today (20 September) been found guilty of murder and grievous bodily harm with intent following a 10-week trial at Southwark Crown Court: Hoque and a friend encountered Samir and four of his friends while on their way into Crossharbour DLR station just before 6pm on the summer’s evening: CCTV footage played in court showed Hoque walking up the station stairs towards platform two when he turned to his right and began communicating with the other group: Samir and two of his friends then moved to the bottom of the stairwell and a short conversation ensued between the two groups: The court heard how the conversation escalated into a physical altercation before CCTV footage showed Hoque pull a black kitchen knife out of his fur hood: A short while later Hoque ran down the stairs after Samir and a second victim and recklessly swung his knife at them, stabbing them both in the process: Samir collapsed on the stairs, was picked up by his friend and both began running away. They only made it a short distance out of the station before Samir collapsed again as Hoque fled the scene: Despite the best efforts of nearby members of the public and paramedics, Samir sadly died of his injuries at the scene after being stabbed multiple times: His friend was conveyed to a local hospital where he underwent surgery for a single stab wound on his back: Hoque admitted in court that he had never spoken to Samir prior to the day of the incident: Two days after the incident, on 12 July, he handed himself in at a local police station.

Senior Investigating Officer in the case, Detective Chief Inspector Paul Langley, said: “This was a shocking act of violence which resulted in the loss of a young man with his whole life ahead of him: While we’re pleased to see that justice has been served to the man responsible, Samir Uddin’s untimely and tragic death has left an unfillable hole in the lives of his parents, four younger siblings and friends: I would like to take this opportunity to offer my heartfelt condolences to his family and friends, and I hope they can take some small comfort that justice has been served today.”

(LONDON) BTP County Lines Taskforce Report: A week of vital interventions were made to safeguard vulnerable people and large quantities of drugs were seized on the rail network as they took part in a national week of enhanced action to disrupt their activity #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.23: Coordinated by the force’s dedicated County Lines Taskforce, the week (11–17 October) saw officers work with regional police forces on operations at key stations and train routes across the UK:

#AceNewsDesk reports on a BTP Co-Ordinated TaskForces Operation to safeguard children against harmful drugs which were seized in a week of enhanced action to tackle County Lines with 41-arrests made following on from earlier this month three people appeared at court charged in connection to offences under the Modern Slavery Act and drugs supply after a 16-year-old boy was found in possession of Class A drugs on the railway.

Cash seizure.jpg

OPERATION NOTES: These included a mix of plain-clothed and uniformed officers alongside drugs dogs and metal detection arches, to remove harmful drugs and dangerous weapons from the railway and communities: Across the seven-day period BTP conducted 88 operations, half of which were joint with regional police forces: In total 41 people were arrested, and officers seized 52 different amounts of drugs, £50k in cash, 43 phones and removed 32 dangerous weapons from the railway: They also safeguarded 14 vulnerable children and adults, visited a cuckooed address and seized one ‘deal line’ – a mobile phone linked to selling drugs.

Detective Superintendent Gareth Williams, BTP’s County Lines Taskforce lead, said: “These results are testament to the dedicated work of my team in partnership with our police colleagues and reminds criminals that the railway is not a viable option to move drugs, or indeed exploited persons, between locations: Drugs they distribute into communities ruin lives and we are continually developing and sharing our intelligence picture, to vary our tactics and dismantle their criminal operations: This coordinated week provided us with the opportunity to shine a light on our proactive operational work and also highlight the ‘Look Closer’ campaign, which we developed alongside The Children’s Society: It aims to raise awareness of child exploitation and encourages rail staff and the public to spot the signs that a person is being exploited and to always report their concerns to us: If you spot the signs of someone being exploited on the railway, text us on 61016. No report is too small or trivial – we will always take you seriously.”

James Simmonds-Read, National Programme Manager at The Children’s Society’s Prevention programme, said: “Predators groom children with offers of cash, gifts, drugs and alcohol, friendship and status – then use terrifying threats and violence to exploit them to carry drugs in ‘county lines’ operations or for sexual or labour exploitation: Young people may not ask for help because they have been manipulated into thinking they are making a choice or because they are too scared to speak out. We must not hold children responsible for preventing their own exploitation but should instead work together as a society to prevent it from happening to them: BTP’s County Lines Taskforce – a police team dedicated to tackling organised criminals using the railway to transport drugs – was setup with Home Office funding in December 2019: A key aim of the team is to identify and safeguard vulnerable children and adults often exploited by these criminals to transport drugs and cash between import and export locations.

To date, the Taskforce has made more than 1,500 arrests, seized nearly 1,000 lots of drugs, made 85 referrals to the National Referral Mechanism for Safeguarding and secured 18 charges under the Modern Slavery Act.

(LONDON) NCA REPORT: A man wanted for his involvement in the supply of class A drugs worth millions of pounds has been arrested in Lanzarote on Wednesday #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.22: He was arrested on Wednesday 20 October at a bar in the town of Yaiza, south of Lanzarote, by officers from the Guardia Civil as part of a joint operation with the NCA.

#AceDailyNews reports on NCA Investigation UPDATE: Gary Vickery, 38, originally from Dublin, previously admitted to having a leading role in conspiring to import class A and B drugs and money laundering was arrested on Wednesday in Lanzarote……

Gary Vickery custody image

CASE NOTES: In July 2021, he failed to attend court where he was due to be remanded in custody, and at the end of July a warrant was issued for his arrest. He subsequently failed to surrender to the court again at a further hearing in September 2021: Officers evidenced Vickery’s involvement in large scale drug shipments worth over £23 million at UK street value, as well as movements of cash, with two other men – Thomas Kavanagh, 53, from Tamworth and Daniel Canning, 42, originally from Dublin: Kavanagh and Canning are both in custody awaiting sentencing after pleading guilty to conspiring to import class A and B drugs and money laundering. Canning also pleaded guilty to possessing a firearm and ammunition.

NCA Deputy Director Matt Horne said: Vickery was given ample opportunity to return to the UK following his guilty plea, but has failed to come back on every occasion: We will ensure those who cause harm to the UK though organised crime are held accountable, and this case highlights our tenacity: I’d like to thank the NCA officers here in the UK, and our international liaison team in Spain, who have worked closely with colleagues in the Guardia Civil to locate Vickery.” Vickery is due to appear before a Spanish court this morning and extradition proceedings for his return to the UK are now in progress.

Matt Jukes, Assistant Commissioner for Specialist Operations, said: “I want to send my deepest condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of Sir David Amess, who died so tragically last Friday: Sir David’s dedication to his family, his constituents and his community, and his positive impact on the lives of so many has shone through: Today’s charge is a significant milestone in the case, but the work from my colleagues in the Met’s Counter Terrorism Command will continue apace: There has been considerable speculation in the media about the background, history and motivation of the man now charged: I understand the huge level of public interest in this case, but now a charge has been brought, it is vitally important that everyone exercises restraint when commenting on it publicly, to ensure future court proceedings are not prejudiced in any way.”

The Attorney General’s Office will be monitoring the coverage of these proceedings: Editors, publishers and social media users are reminded of their responsibilities under the Act and should take legal advice to ensure they are in a position to fully comply with the obligations imposed by the Act.

(LONDON) Old Bailey Court Report: A drug addict who murdered a man while on bail for a “vicious” axe attack has been jailed for life #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.21: Richard Hand stabbed 37-year-old Yassar Moussa in the neck on 22 August last year then dumped his naked body in a park in Walthamstow, east London…..

#AceDailyNews says according to BBC News Richard Hand murder case: Man bailed for axe attack went on to kill: The 43-year-old was also found guilty of attempted murder and having an offensive weapon in relation to the attack on Mr Bennett in Streatham Hill, south London, in January 2020.

Richard Hand
Richard Hand denied murder – but gave away key details to police that only the killer could know

At the time of the killing, Hand had been on bail charged with attacking Graeme Bennett with an axe eight months earlier.

Hand was jailed at the Old Bailey for a minimum of 30 years.

Mr Moussa’s partner, Lauren Battye, said he had been “failed” by the criminal justice system.

“If he (Hand) had not been released from prison, this would not have happened.”

Met PoliceYassar Moussa was attacked while visiting Richard Hand’s house

Mr Moussa was visiting Hand at his home in Falmouth Way, Walthamstow, on the day of the attack.

An examination of his body found a wound to Mr Moussa’s knee, suggesting a failed attempt at dismemberment.

Afterwards, Hand attempted to cover his tracks by stripping Mr Moussa’s body and covering him in bleach before stuffing him in a suitcase.

‘Chance discovery’

The next day, Hand was caught on CCTV dragging a heavy suitcase to St James Park where Mr Moussa’s body was found in heavy undergrowth.

It was only by chance the body was discovered, on 24 August 2020, as Environment Agency workers cut back the undergrowth in the park for the first time in 10 years.

Hand denied being responsible for the killing of Mr Moussa, whom he knew as a fellow drug user.

When officers spoke to Hand, he claimed to have heard the victim was strangled or stabbed in the neck and dumped naked – details that were not publicly known.

Mr Moussa’s blood was identified inside the defendant’s flat and on his clothes.

Google Environment Agency workers found the body of Yassar Moussa by chance while cutting the grass in St James Park in Walthamstow

The previous attack, on Mr Bennett, happened at the victim’s home, where Hand launched the axe attack “out of the blue”.

Mr Bennett, 43, who had invited Hand to help him hang some pictures, was struck twice to the head and suffered a fractured skull.

(LONDON) MET REPORT: At least 119 people have been arrested following a three day, cross-police force operation to tackle violence and associated criminality #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Oct.21: Officers used Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology along main roads in and around London, as well as in violence hotspots, to target vehicles which activated the technology, showing a link to violence and drug crimes.

#AceDailyNews reports that more than 100 arrests in violence and drugs crack-down as officers from the MET teamed together with six other police forces: Surrey; Kent; Essex; Hertfordshire; Thames Valley; and British Transport Police, to disrupt and prevent violence, drugs and gang activity.

19 October 2021 17:40

More than 100 arrests in violence and drugs crack-down

Youth workers from the charity Bounce Back, who interact with young offenders offering support and guidance to help them find ways out of criminal lifestyles, also joined the operation, working in dedicated custody suites providing immediate intervention.

The operation, which ran from 12-14 October, resulted in (MPS only):

  • 119 arrests for knives and drugs offences
  • 18 knives/weapons recovered
  •  A number of drug seizures, including a cannabis factory
  • £5,795 cash seized, with an additional individual seizure of €451,000
  • 45 vehicles seized. 

Inspector Pete Luciano, of the Violent Crime Taskforce, said: “Our number one priority is tackling violence and the drivers which fuel it – we know this includes drugs supply. The use of ANPR technology is a valuable tactic we use to target criminals bringing drugs and weapons onto the streets of London. Operations like this form part of the wider work being carried out across the Met to tackle violence in all its forms: officers are running bespoke operations alongside day-to-day activity, to make communities safer: We are working alongside other police forces and sharing intelligence across borders to intercept criminals using the road networks. My message is clear: if you are involved in the supply of drugs or exploitation of others, we will identify you; stop you and arrest you: Crucially during this operation we were joined by a youth worker who supported individuals on the cusp of violence. This meant young people received instant support, independent of police. Operations like this, which include a collaborative approach, can have a real impact on finding longer-term solutions for those engaging in criminality.” ……….It is absolutely critical that we, along with our partners, drive down violent crime in London – this is the top priority for all in the Met………….Our plans are strong and officers are using a range of tactics from prevention and diversion activities to enforcement. Our continued efforts are starting to have a collective impact, with data showing positive reductions across serious violent crime categories.

This year to September 2021 (CYTD), compared to the same period prior to the pandemic in 2019, has seen:

  • Homicides decrease by 10% 
  • Knife crime decrease by 32% 
  • Knife crime with injury decrease by 20% 
  • Knife Injury (victims under 25 and non-domestic abuse) decrease by 27% 
  • Personal robbery decrease by 45% 
  • Personal robbery knife injury decrease by 36% 
  • Gun crime decrease by 36% 
  • Lethal barrel discharges decrease by 28% 

Despite these reductions, we are not complacent and know there is more to do. Our determination to tackle these crimes remains strong and we will continue to work with our partners, and use every power and tactic available, to serve and protect our communities. 

Communities also have a vital role to play in tackling violent crime and we urge anyone who may have information to tell us, so that we can tackle violence together. We need information about crime or those who carry a weapon, or those that exploit people for gain or revenge, while putting young people’s lives at risk. Community intelligence can be used to great effect to not only detect, but also prevent crime, keep London safe and save young lives.

Update: 12 October 

A criminal enterprise that supplied fraudulent passports to some of the UK’s most notorious organised criminals has been dismantled by a National Crime Agency investigation.

Officers believe the crime group provided hundreds of UK passports that enabled criminals – including fugitives from UK justice and international drug and firearm traffickers – to cross borders and conduct business undetected.

A 66-year-old man from Sydenham, who splits his time between Spain, the UK and Ireland, was arrested at his home address this morning. He is suspected of acting as a broker between criminals seeking to buy the passports and crime group members that supplied them.

Nine people believed to be members of the crime group were also detained on suspicion of conspiracy to pervert the course of public justice and making false instruments in NCA raids in Sutton, Sydenham, Rotherhithe, Hackney, Battersea and Hayes (Kent). They are aged between 34 and 71.

A team of NCA officers, working closely with the HM Passport Office and the Dutch National Police, have been monitoring the group’s movements. They have provided intelligence on FOG passports being used by fugitives which has led to numerous arrests across Europe, and further afield in Dubai, Australia, Thailand and Brazil.

Suspected clients of the group include Jamie Acourt, who was arrested in Spain in 2018 and later jailed for nine years for drugs offences, and Michael Moogan – one of the UK’s most wanted fugitives who was arrested in Dubai in April 2021.

The group is also suspected of providing the passports to members of high-profile Irish and Scottish organised crime groups, and to Richard Burdett, who was jailed last month alongside his brother Daniel after an NCA investigation found they had arranged the importation of 16 pistols and automatic weapons into the UK.

NCA officers allege the group specialised in fraudulently-obtained genuine passports (FOGs) – documents which are issued authentically but have been applied for using false information. The result is a seemingly legitimate document, and FOGs are therefore highly sought after by criminals worldwide.

They sourced individuals who were willing to sell their personal details for passport applications. It is believed payments up to £2,000 were made to those willing to provide their identity.

Another 14 people, suspected of receiving the FOGs or assisting the group through countersigning documents they knew to be fraudulent, were arrested today by the NCA in Kent, Essex and Merseyside. They were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to make a false instrument and are aged between 38 and 73.

This morning’s operation, which involved more than 250 officers, follows a lengthy investigation by the NCA into the criminal network codenamed Operation Strey. Today’s activity was also supported by the Metropolitan Police.

Jacque Beer, NCA Regional Head of Investigations, said: This is one of the most significant NCA investigations of recent times: We believe that this group’s activities has enabled some of the most serious organised criminality in the UK and around the world: Today’s operation has dismantled a criminal service that let drug and firearm traffickers, suspected murderers, and fugitives evade detection and operate internationally under false identities: It hasn’t just broken up a widespread and deep-rooted criminal conspiracy; it has led to the strengthening of safeguards against criminal exploitation of the UK passport issuing system: Our investigation, which continues with the evidence we have gathered today, showcases the NCA’s role in leading the law enforcement system against serious and organised crime; targeting the elite criminal specialists presenting the biggest threat to the UK.”

Security Minister Damian Hinds said: “This is a fantastic result and will do significant damage to the serious organised crime groups who want to inflict misery on our shores and around the world. The close working between the NCA and Her Majesty’s Passport Office has been at the heart of this hugely successful operation: The Government is working to make the UK border one of the most effective and secure in the world, which will also support our ambition of dismantling ruthless organised crime groups.”
