Two people have died and a further seven people have been treated following an RTC in Staffordshire.
The crash occurred on the A5, near to Weston Park at around 2.20pm on Monday afternoon. 
The first person on scene was an off duty A&E nurse who came across the incident and started to treat patients.
In addition, three community first responders from the Brewood and Wheaton Aston schemes, four ambulances, two paramedic officers and the Midlands Air Ambulances from Cosford and Staffordshire attended the scene. 
A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “Crews arrived to find a number of vehicles that had been in a significant collision.
“One vehicle had overturned in the crash and unfortunately, it quickly became apparent that nothing could be done to save a woman and a girl travelling in that car; they were sadly confirmed dead at the scene.
“A man also travelling in the overturned vehicle had suffered serious pelvic injuries. He received emergency treatment at the scene from medics and was airlifted to Royal Stoke University Hospital for further emergency treatment.
“A man in his 60’s and a woman in her 30’s, both travelling in a second car were treated at the scene for multiple minor injuries and were transferred in the same ambulance to New Cross Hospital in Wolverhampton for further treatment.
“A man believed to be in his 40’s, travelling in a third car suffered a shoulder injury. He received treatment before being taken by land ambulance to Princess Royal Hospital in Telford.
“A man in his 30’s and a woman in her 20’s, travelling in a fourth car were treated at the scene for minor injuries by medics and did not require further treatment. Both were discharged at scene.
“A woman in a fifth car was checked over at the scene for back injuries. She received treatment before being transferred by ambulance to Princess Royal Hospital for further treatment.
“West Midlands Ambulance Service would like to pay tribute to its staff for their professionalism and the excellent treatment they provided at what was an extremely difficult and distressing incident. The Trust would also like to thank the off duty nurse who assisted with treatment at the scene.”

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.

Awww Cleveland Police have just recruited these four legged friends

Published

on

Put your paws up for our two new recruits, Maggie and Skye who are the newest and youngest additions to the Force. At just 12 weeks old, the two English Springer Spaniels will soon begin their training to become Specialist Search Dogs.

Dog Trainer Constable Darren Gobie and Police Constable Chris Lambert are the lucky handlers of the pups. PC Lambert teamed up with a year 4 class at Myton Park School in Ingleby Barwick and allowed them to choose Skye’s name.

Chris and Skye will regularly visit the school over the next 18 months to allow them to follow her training process.

Speaking of the collaboration with the school, PC Lambert said: “I thought it would be a great idea to tie in with a school in the local community.

Recruiting new dogs is a huge deal and it’s an exciting and educational opportunity for the pupils to meet a police dog, choose her name collectively as a team and to better understand the training process for police dogs, and police roles in general.

The children were delighted to participate in this and I am sure they will all build a lovely bond with Skye over the coming months.”

PC Lambert, along with partner agencies will also be using the visits to the school to deliver lessons on internet safety and safety around animals.

The officers and the dogs will need to work very closely as team throughout the training process to build a special bond together.

Training is both mentally and physically challenging for both the dogs and handlers, as every programme must be passed to qualify.

Specialist dogs are used to detect a range of things with their highly developed sense of smell such as money, explosives, drugs and firearms.

They are also trained to work in public places including licenses premises to search for people in possession of narcotics.
