    Roll-up, roll-up for street surprises

  2. Forever haunted by the image of her daughter’s lifeless body in a crashed car, a mum is today begging other drivers to stop speeding. It has now been almost a year since Isabel Easson lost her precious girl Bethany Fisher when a car, driven by Jordan O’Donnell, smashed into parked cars and a wall outside her home in Bedlington. Today two new speed indicator display (SID) signs have been installed on the C405 by Northumberland County Council following campaigning by Bethany’s family and friends. And Isabel hopes the signs will make people think and help stop other parents going through what she has. The 48-year-old said: “I just don’t want this to happen to anyone else. I still can’t see past that image of her body. I’m struggling to get that image of her out my head. “That’s something no parent should ever see.

Police raided eight homes in Ashington, Bedlington and Widdrington in Northumberland and arrested eight men and two women on suspicion of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs. Detective chief inspector Jon Bensley, of Northumbria Police, said Thursday morning’s operation was part of a strategy to tackle a range of offences — including violent crime — which could be linked to the use and supply of Class A drugs. He said: “The warrants we have carried out today are prime examples of the robust response we will take to proactively target those believed to be involved in criminal behaviour. “A large part of our operation is responding to reports and intelligence that comes to us from the community. “There is no doubt of the harmful impact drugs and drug dealing has on these communities and we are absolutely committed to pursuing those who think they can get away with it.

  10. When the sun is shining everyone loves a good barbecue and so it’s time to dust down the patio, fire up the BBQ and get ready for some gastro grilling. According to the people behind the National BBQ Week, which started back in 1997, the cry used to be ‘if it ain’t burnt, it ain’t barbi’, but our attitudes towards BBQ and summer eating have changed and the BBQ market has grown from just 9 million BBQ occasions back then to over 130 million last year. With this in mind we have come up with a list of local parks and beaches where you can definitely have a BBQ around Newcastle . And we have looked into the rules for outdoor grillers too! Bolam Lake Country Park, Belsay The park is situated in the heart of the Northumberland countryside, surrounded by historic landscapes and dramatic views. It has lakeside, woodland and open grassed areas for all to enjoy, with the attractive lakeside walk being accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs. You’ll find a number of picnic tables in the main picnic area. The best access to the Pheasant Field is from West Wood car park. BBQs are allowed but visitors must take them home and be careful not to scorch the grass or wooden surfaces.

  15. A former Northumberland garage owner is motoring in a completely new career, after swapping automotive engineering for watch making. Glen Anthony Jobling, from Bedlington , has more than 30 years experience in the vintage and modern motoring industry but he has now turned his interest in design watches into a new business. Mr Jobling was inspired to change his career as a successful garage owner in North Tyneside in 2015, after making a watch for a friend while mulling over his options for a career change. Glen Anthony Watches (GA) has now officially launched with a range of men’s and women’s watches, which are designed, manufactured and assembled at his workshop in Wansbeck Business Park in Northumberland . All the parts of the watch are handmade on site by Mr Jobling except the Swiss movement, which he has sourced to meet his specific requirements. The watches are influenced by his love of all things mechanical and automotive, with designs inspired by the craftsmanship of the vintage cars he used to restore, as well as high tech materials of the latest sports cars.
