Cardiff University Students & women warned to stay together after a number of women attacked in recent days

Published

on

 The events of recent days in Cardiff have focussed attention upon the safety of young women in our city.
Working together, a number of additional safety measures have been put in place. Two additional Student Safety Buses staffed by police officers and police student volunteers have been provided, with three buses now running into the night to provide students with safe, dedicated transport back to their accommodation. 

 The Student Unions have also been working with Cardiff’s taxi firms to ensure drivers will take their passengers safely back home at the end of their evening out and you are encouraged to make use of this service.

South Wales Police is continuing its high visibility patrols throughout the city centre and surrounding areas. A significant number of officers and staff will be patrolling the area along with an increased presence supported by a number of officers from across the force area.

Cardiff’s licensees’ forum and trained professional door staff have also taken extra measures to help ensure the safety of their customers.

Divisional Commander for Cardiff, Chief Superintendent Belinda Davies, has reaffirmed her commitment to keeping Cardiff safe and has said that the police has a zero-tolerance approach towards anyone who commits these appalling crimes and that everything possible is being done to bring those responsible to justice.

“All reports of sexual assault are taken extremely seriously and South Wales Police, together with the Police and Crime Commissioner, are continuing to work with our partners to make tackling this type of crime a priority.

“Cardiff is a safe city and I want to keep it that way. I want to reassure local residents and the parents of young people who are coming to Cardiff, often away from home for the first time, that we will do all we can to help to keep people safe.
“As our investigation continues we want people to be able to go out, enjoy themselves and feel safe in our Capital City. 

Crimes like this are never the victims fault, but I would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone to follow basic safety advice so they keep themselves and their friends safe.
“Please stay together when you’re out at night, drink responsibly and make sure you all go home together.
“Always plan your journey home, book a reputable taxi firm, and if walking please keep to well-lit areas.”
If anyone has any information please approach a police officer or contact South Wales Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
Anyone with any concerns can also contact the student services department at their university or SARC (Ynys Saff, Sexual Assault referral Centre) on 101.

Nine-year-old boy locked in safe during game of hide and seek

Published

A Nine-year-old boy became trapped in a safe during a game of hide and seek at his grandfathers home in Berlin.

He had to be rescued by firefighters after he hid inside the sade. He was playing with his little brother at home in Lichterfelde, Berlin.

Believing he has found the perfect hiding place the boy went inside the unused safe and closed the door locking himself in.

The boy was playing with his little brother at the home in Lichterfelde, Berlin, when he found the ultimate hiding place.

His hiding place was eventually found but his grandfather was the only person who knew the code for the safe and he was away.

They could not get in contact with him and called for help from the local fire brigade.

They tested family birthdays for three hours in the hope they’d crack the code while pumping oxygen into the safe via a tiny crack.

As a specialist team arrived who was able to cut the safe open they managed to enter a successful six-digit code.

Firefighters say the child remained calm throughout the ordeal and was shocked but unharmed.

Berlin firefighter Thomas Kirstein said it was a happy ending and super early Christmas present.

Hopefully, he won’t be hiding in there again and in future, they’ll be keeping the door shut because this incident could have been very different.
