Grimsby Home Raided



A GRIMSBY couple have been left “devastated” after a thief smashed their kitchen window with a lump of concrete and entered their home as they slept upstairs.

Lydia Boyd and Kier Watson were awoken at 2.30am on Saturday, by the sound of shattering glass, but by the time they got downstairs, the culprit had escaped with her Ralph Lauren handbag in a smash-and-grab type raid.

The pair have been left devastated, shaken and suffering sleepless nights.

Among the items in the bag were some personal diaries.

The couple have now backed an appeal from Humberside Police to residents not to leave valuables in view of windows.

Lydia said: “We have been devastated by the burglary. It is shocking to think that no matter how much you protect your home someone can still break in.

“I haven’t slept because we are freaked out by it all. All my personal stuff has gone. Those diaries are very personal. They have all my movements and important dates.”

The diaries were in her handbag along with £60 cash, bank cards, a Dolce and Gabbana watch and a treasured ring.

Also taken was a Clinique compact make-up bag.

They were all contained in the Ralph Lauren black shoulder bag with red trim which she had bought in New York.

It also had a black Guess ladies’ purse inside.

The owner said she hoped residents living in the Bargate area would search their gardens or outbuildings to check if the handbag was discarded, after the cash was taken from it.

She said: “In the hope of it being dumped in a wheelie bin or a garden, we want as many people to know about this as possible, and maybe prevent it happening to anyone else.”

Kier said: “You don’t expect someone to be prowling around looking in your windows.

“It is opportunist and it has caused a lot of aggro and hastle.”

A Humberside Police spokeswoman said: “A designer handbag was stolen from a chair inside the property.

“Police would like to remind people about the importance of not leaving valuable items on display. These can attract the unwanted attention of opportunist thieves.”

Anyone with information in connection with the burglary was asked to contact Humberside Police by calling 101 and quoting crime reference AA/2020225.

All of a sudden he fell unconscious and was being treated in hospital, during his time in hospital it was discovered his insurance policy have been voided and they demanded an upfront payment while he laid on his death bed.

The inquest heard how the insurance was void as he had not declared a bacterial infection he had within his stomach two years before his holiday.

Adrian’s dad Charles Bumford told the hearing: “A man at the hospital stood in my son’s room and told me: ‘The insurance is null and void – you pay now or I switch off the machines.’

“I didn’t have the £7,000 ($9,800) he was asking for at that time. As he walked out of the room he started switching things off.”

Charles added that he tried contacting the hospital ’50 times’ but he never received an answer. The friend Adrian was with at the time, Nicola, was similarly confused by the situation occurring in the medical facility.

“They did the second dialysis and then said that the insurance was voided,” she told the inquest.

“They never said he had a cardiac arrest or anything, they said it was stopping, because the funding was stopped.”

Our thoughts are with the family of Adrian at this difficult time.

Jon Venables Reportedly Attacked With Boiling Water By Fellow Inmate



Jon Venables attacked with boiling water by a fellow inmate. 

Jon Venables, one of the schoolboys who murdered James Bulger in 1993 has been attacked in prison after an image was released on social media.

Venables who is now aged 35 was attacked with boiling water and sugar after a fellow inmate managed to work out his identity.

Venables have been living under a fake name since 2001 and was sent back to jail having broken the conditions of his release and being found guilty of child pornography.

Venables was banned from travelling back to Liverpool but he had been attending music events and going to Everton Football matches.

He was later found to be in possession of cocaine and was also having a relationship with an underage girl.

Prison Officers were forced to place Venables on lockdown after his identity was revealed and he was attacked with boiling water and sugar.

it is alleged that Venables complained that guards did nothing at first to stop the attack from happening and offered him little help once he had been assaulted.

The Ministry of Justice confirmed to Police Hour that “incidents of this nature happen within prisons and we cannot discuss the nature of individual cases”

Now that the true identity of Venables is known within side the prison after images have been circulated among inmates it will be inevitable that another attack will happen.

Venables is currently serving a three-year sentence for child pornography offences and possession of 1,170 images of children which included babies.

It is believed inmates have been circulating images of Venables from prison to prison in the hope that one prisoner can identity him.

Facebook and Twitter this month removed images from their social media websites of various men who people claimed was Venables.

It is a criminal offence to name or identity Venables on social media due to an anonymity order granted in 2001 that prevents him from ever being named or identified.

Due to the nature of his repeat offending there is mounting pressure to scrap that order in order to prevent further children being targeted.

However due to the nature of Venables sick attack these orders are likely never to be removed.
