A SENIOR detective caught having sex with a married lawyer in a police interview room has been allowed to keep his job. Detective Inspector Ricky Price, 42, was romping with Rachel Pudner, also 42, in the room at Cockett police station in Swansea when a “startled” junior officer walked in. The police community support officer had walked in on the nearly-naked pair after hearing noises coming from the room. Chief Constable Matt Jukes ruled the officer was guilty of gross misconduct but let him off with a final written warning. It means Price will keep his £54,000-a-year position and full pension after 22 years in the job. An insider said at the time: “It has been a bit of a scandal - people were sworn to secrecy but everyone knew what happened. “Inspector Price was a career cop who was tipped for further promotion. “They were taking a huge risk, they were both practically naked when the startled PCSO found them at it.” South Wales Police held a … [Read more...] about On-duty detective caught having ‘loud sex’ with married lawyer in police station allowed to KEEP his job
Teen job interview tips
WE have rightly spent the past week remembering the sacrifice of the fallen from World War One with the sobering sentiment ”They Shall Not Grow Old”. Fast forward 100 years and now, in supposedly modern, progressive Britain, young men are still losing their lives . . . this time, to a knife crime epidemic. Jay Hughes, 15, shall not grow old. Nor will Malcolm Mide-Madariola, 17, or John Ogunjobi, 16, or Lyrico Steede, 16, or any of the many, many other youngsters fatally stabbed on our seemingly lawless streets this year alone. The senseless roll call of death continues and, with it, the blame game between those in positions of authority with the power to tackle it. The police must do more, says the Home Office. The Home Office doesn’t support us enough, say the police. More stop and search is the answer, say some. No it isn’t, say others. It’s Tory austerity, say Labour. New Labour’s liberalism started it, say the Tories. Enough already. Let’s … [Read more...] about We may end Britain’s teen knife deaths with more searches and tougher jail terms
DONALD Trump is set for crunch talks with his deputy attorney general amid speculation he was going to resign before he could be fired. Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing Robert Mueller's probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, is alleged to have discussed wearing a “wire” to meetings with the US President. The White House announced the pair will meet on Thursday after a flurry of conflicting reports about whether he would be leaving the post.

0 Have your say Raymond Soltysek was only five years old when he first felt something going “wonky” in his mind. “I was walking home with a wee girlfriend and I just remember my head physically filling with something black, like a cloud or oil,” he says. “I snapped at her. I think I just wanted her to shut up, I think, or the world to go away. “I felt immediately scalded by my reaction; I didn’t know where it came from. People have said to me since ‘maybe you were just pissed off with her’, but the physical sensation was powerful and vivid enough for me to remember it all these years later.”Not that Soltysek told anyone at the time; he internalised his feelings then and in his late teens, when, over a period of nine months, he would curl up in the corner of his bedroom or spend nights out with his friends, but not speaking them. It wasn’t until he was 40, after protracted periods of depression had contributed … [Read more...] about Insight: What tips men over the edge of despair
MI6 is preparing for a massive recruitment drive which could see it grow in size by around 40 per cent in four years. In September the agency began preparing to recruit as many as 1,000 spies – swelling its ranks from 2,500 to 3,500 – to combat increased threats from terrorism. The new personnel are expected to be brought in to focus on the changing nature of dangers facing UK security, such as cyber attacks and propaganda from hostile states. The news was made public by the 2015 Strategic Defence and Security Review, which announced a total of 1,900 extra staff would be recruited to the intelligence services. The exact distribution of the new spies was not revealed, but MI6 is expected to get the lion’s share. You certainly don't have to be a swashbuckling James Bond-esque figure to join the security services – indeed, GCHQ is looking to recruit social media-savvy teen girls to become Britain's spies of tomorrow. Here, we tell … [Read more...] about What is MI6, how do I get a job there and how much money do spies earn?
