    M4 death crash: Woman, 66, killed trying to save dog - BBC News







    eta:
    “A dog belonging to a female driver of a white VW Golf vehicle is believed to have entered the carriageway followed by the driver of the VW Golf vehicle,” police said.

    “A Ford Transit vehicle has collided with the 66-year-old female who was pronounced deceased at the scene. A police family liaison officer has been appointed and is supporting the next of kin.

    “The motorway was closed for approximately five hours while police carried out initial investigations and recovered the vehicles. South Wales police would like to thank the people affected by the closure for their patience and understanding.”

    Connors’ husband and son, who were jailed last year following a high-profile modern slavery case, are applying for a temporary release from prison on compassionate grounds so they can attend her funeral.

    Patrick Joseph Connors, 60, his son Patrick Dean Connors, 40, and nephew William Connors, 37, were all convicted of requiring a person to perform forced or compulsory labour between 2010 and 2013.

    The men were found guilty of keeping their two victims – one of whom was identified as Michael Hughes, 47 – in “appalling conditions” and paying them as little as £5. The judge at Cardiff crown court said the case could “only be described as modern-day slavery”.

    Connors senior received a 14-year sentence, and was also convicted of eight counts of assault, four of kidnap and one of conspiracy to kidnap. Patrick Dean received a six-and-a-half year sentence and William was jailed for four years.

    Re: The observation and asides thread

    Pick Of The Week has just replayed Eddie Mair's news report that Barry Manilow has declared himself gay. Mr Mair followed the news item with one from the BBC's Religious Affairs correspondent confirming the Pope to be Catholic, and a mid-West Professor of Ecology who announced the newly-discovered ability of bears to defecate in forested areas. I had not heard the original bulletin, I'm pleased I caught the repeat.

    Re: The observation and asides thread

    I was unaware that Mr Hudson had recently been in the news.

    I didn't make up the news bulletin - BBC Radio 4 - PM, Barry Manilow comes out. Also: bear & Pope news. It's just on the tip of what a news program can get away with but the delivery is perfect, Absolutely deadpan.

    So you were reporting the news as it was told.
    And I thought you were the wag.

    To be fair the unnamed professors finding's and the Pope hadn't been very newsworthy recently either...........................no wonder Rock kept it under his hat.

    I have checked the original sources and it turns out Ryanair Passenger Charged 15 Euro For Being Dragged Off Plane – Waterford Whispers News is untrue in every possible respect. I can't imagine how it fooled me for a while.
