Officers Go Full Throttle for Launch of Brake Road Safety Week

Published

on

Police and partners will next week take part in a week-long timetable of activities to raise awareness
of a national road safety campaign.

Brake Road Safety Week takes place between Monday 18th November and Sunday 24th November
and promotes road safety in the hope of preventing tragedies and making roads safer to use.

This year officers from the Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit will visit colleges
around the Force area and will carry out enforcement operations during the week to highlight the
campaign.

Throughout the week officers will concentrate on the ‘Fatal 4’ of drinking and driving, seatbelts,
speeding and distraction. The ‘Fatal 4’ consists of the four most common contributing factors when
looking at fatalities on roads.

On Monday 18th November officers and colleagues from Cleveland Fire Brigade will start the week
with the Learn and Live initiative at Hartlepool College. The initiative will also be taking place at
Redcar & Cleveland College, Stockton Riverside College and Middlesbrough College throughout
the rest of the week.

On Tuesday 19th November officers in both the Cleveland and Durham areas will concentrate on
seatbelt enforcement and ensuring that motorists and their passengers are wearing their seatbelts.
Wednesday 20th November will focus on enforcement action in relation to the issue of speeding.

Thursday 21st November will centre around enforcement action in relation to distraction, and in
particular mobile phones. The rest of the week will see officers out on patrol, carrying out alcohol
tests and drug tests on any drivers suspected of being intoxicated.

Inspector Lee Rukin, Cleveland and Durham Specialist Operations Unit, said: “Brake Road Safety
Week highlights the extremely important messages that we as roads policing officers find ourselves
repeating to motorists every day.


“It is imperative that we take part in such campaigns in order to save lives and avoid serious road
collisions wherever possible. We spend a lot of time carrying out enforcement action which focuses
on the ‘Fatal 4’ but the potential to save just one life makes all of it worthwhile.”

DEAD: Sally Jones Britain’s Most Wanted Woman and Islamic State Recruiter Killed

Published

on

The White Widow Sally Jones has been Killed in a US Drone Strike, Jones who had planned many terror attacks fled the UK to become a IS Recruiter.

She was Britain’s Most Wanted Woman. It is believed she died in a US Air Force Drone Strike which happened near to the border of Syria and Iraq.

Jones was killed in June 2017, with the news kept hush because of fears that her 12-year-old son may have also been killed.

Jones left her home in Chatham, Kent in 2013 with her son Jojo to join Islamic State in Syria. During this time she often used her son as a human shield to save her own life.

The CIA and MI6 spent months tracking down Jones before they launched a Drone Strike and killed her.

She played a key role in the recruitment of young females becoming jihadis often leaving their families in the middle of the night to head out and join the Islamic State.

Despite the claims that Jones is dead, the US cannot 100 percent be sure she is dead, as they made no attempt to recover any DNA, But they are very confident that she is dead.

Drone Strikes are very clever in the way they work as they are able to follow targets for a number of weeks before launching a missile attack without any civilians being killed.

However, they cannot confirm if 12-year-old brainwashed Jojo has been killed also, something which the Americans could face a backlash over.

Jojo was brainwashed he faced years of forced lessons in radical Islam & firearms training. He recently featured within an IS execution video standing behind a row of prisoners who was kneeling on the floor before pulling the trigger and murdering them.

Jones converted to Islam and was nicknamed the White Widow after her Islamic State husband Junaid Hussain was killed by a drone in 2015.

Hussain aged 21 and from Birmingham brainwashed Jones to such a degree she became head of recruitment for young women and schoolgirls within the Islamic State.

Jones & Hussain planned many attacks across Europe and America and is believed to have been a key recruiter and brainwasher of many wanting to join the Islamic State.

Jones was linked to the planning of a number of major terror attacks including one which planned to blow up the Queen and Prince Philip on the streets of London during the VJ celebrations.
