Blades, 23, of Wells Court, Peterborough, pleaded guilty to conspiring to cause grievous bodily harm, but Smith denied the charge, claiming others had come up with the plan.

However, he was convicted unanimously following a five-day trial at Peterborough Crown Court.

Sentencing today (Tuesday August 12) Smith was jailed for seven years and Blades for 12 months. They were both given a 10 year restraining order against the victim.

Detective Constable Vicky Speirs, who investigated, said: “This was a sickening and extremely dangerous plot to cause a young woman to lose her unborn child.

“It is incomprehensible how anyone would want to carry out such a hurtful and violent act. It was an incredibly selfish act by Smith who gave no thought as to what effect his actions could potentially have on the victim.

“Given the level of violence they were prepared to use, we could quite easily have been dealing with a murder.

“Thankfully, one of those men recruited by Smith to carry out his dirty work saw sense and contacted the police so we could intervene and prevent such a serious incident taking place.

Heartwarming cops share chips with man who hasn’t eaten for days

Published

on

Two police officers this evening shared their chips with a man they found on the motorway who hasn’t eaten food in days.

The caring cops showed compassion and humanity when they could have just nicked the lad and sent him off to the cells.

But instead of taking him straight into police custody they stopped off for some chips.

Showing a truly caring side of British traffic cops who often don’t get the best press.

“The cops from the Leicestershire road policing unit tweeted that they had found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK.

“He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟”

These truly caring officers have shown this evening that police officers have hearts and they do care about people.

Policing is not always about crime, it’s the small acts of human kindness that go a long way.

We praise these officers for their genuine out of kindness out of their own pocket.

Helen tweeted “I know you’ll probably get people complain but. Compassion, humanity and care are great qualities.”

UK Cop Humour tweeted “Fab stuff and whilst we’re on the topic of spuds: why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.”

ElAine tweeted “I know some people’s heads will explode at this but well done for your compassion.”

Simply policing at it’s best. What ever your views you have to admit this is compassion and humility at it’s best.

These cops truly deserve to be recognised for great policing work.

Not every job needs to be a tick box, just because it’s a suspected illegal immigrant doesn’t mean they should be treat any different.

Top job with excellent policing skills, that will have ensured this suspect didn’t cause any problems for the officers.

Full up on chips, the officers then processes this man through custody and will refer to the home office immigration services.
