“The University does not tolerate any form of incitement to hatred or violence, and condemns in the strongest terms extremist activity. It has been fully compliant with the Government’s Prevent duty guidance since its instigation, and takes these responsibilities extremely seriously.

“Following reports of the attacks in Sri Lanka the University contacted its educational partners in the country to express its sympathy and support and extends its deepest condolences to all those affected.”

New research is showing that the gap between earnings and house price inflation has shrunk considerably.

It used to be that homeowners would earn more from the rising value of their properties than their post-tax pay.

However, better wage growth and weakening house prices mean that gap is closing.

According to Halifax, Richmond currently has the biggest gap, with house prices £55,000 above wages.

The bank says this should make mortgages more affordable.

A man from Sunbury has been handed a suspended jail sentence after being found guilty of causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

59 year old Ralph Keemer was given 14 months suspended for two years.

It’s after the collision he was involved in in Chertsey last August left a cyclist with GBH level injuries.

He was also found guilty of failing to stop at the scene of a collision, failing to report a collision, and driving a vehicle without an MOT.

He was also sentenced to a nightly curfew for two months and given six points on his licence and banned from driving for 30 months.

The victim, a semi-professional triathlete, was riding her bike along Bridge Road avoiding pot holes on her nearside.

Keemer, who was driving the vehicle behind her, became impatient and tooted his horn at her several times.

Despite an opportunity to pull out and overtake, he pulled alongside the victim and verbally abused her.

He then steered towards her, resulting in his front nearside wheel hitting the kerb and causing him to brake sharply.

The cyclist was forced to brake hard, causing her to go over the handlebars and land on her head and shoulder.

Carshalton Athletic enjoyed a mixed Bank Holiday weekend as their play-off aspirations now go down to the last game of the season

The Robins remained third in the Bostik Premier on Good Friday as Ricky Korboa scored twice in a 2-0 victory against relegation-threatened Burgess Hill Town at Colston Avenue.

But a crunch match at play-off rivals Tonbridge Angels ended in rare defeat as the home side won 1-0 and the two clubs swapped places in the league.

Seven clubs can now mathematically make the four play-off spots and fourth-placed Carshalton have to play in-form Bishop's Stortford on Saturday, but victory against their fifth-placed opponents will secure the Robins a coveted top five finish.

"The game (at Tonbridge) wasn't the best and 0-0 would've been a fair result in all honesty," said Robins defender Kalvin Morath-Gibbs.

"Fair play to Tonbridge for taking their only chance. We didn't create much ourselves which was disappointing but I didn't feel like we deserved to lose on the day."

That result, coupled with others elsewhere, now means Carshalton's margin for error is razor-thin when Bishop's Stortford arrive at Colston Avenue for the final day of the official league season.

Their visitors have won their last seven consecutive league games while Carshalton have won their last eight home matches.

"We know what we have to do this Saturday, a win will be enough for us to be in the play-offs and that's what we are all aiming for," added Morath-Gibbs.

"A draw might also be enough but then we are relying on other teams dropping points, which isn't ideal, so it's three points or bust in our eyes."

Carshalton Athletic vs Bishop's Stortford is on Saturday, KO 3pm.

Two former children’s home workers, including one from Sutton, have been jailed after they were found guilty of sexually abusing three boys aged under 13 in the 1970s



73 year old Bernard Collins from Sutton was found guilty of five counts of indecent assault.

He was sentenced to four years in jail earlier today.

69 year old Patrick Grant from Cardiff was found guilty of ten counts of indecent assault.

He was sentenced to eight years in jail.

The abuse was committed against three boys who were in the care of Grant and Collins whilst residents at children's homes in Lambeth, Kingston and Cardiff.

Detectives from the Homicide and Major Crime Command under Operation Trinity launched an investigation after a victim came forward to speak to police in 2014.

As enquiries progressed, another victim disclosed that he was indecently assaulted by Grant and Collins when he was a resident at Fircroft Children's Home, Kingston in 1976 aged just 11 years old.

A further victim was also identified as a result of police enquiries.

Both men were charged with indecent assault last April.

During the trial, the court heard that between 1976 and 1989, three boys aged between 10 and 13 were abused when in the care of local authorities and residents at;

Fircroft Childrens Home, Kingston
Rowan House, Shirley Oaks Childrens Home, Lambeth
Walker House Children's Home, Llanishen, South Wales.

Detective Sergeant Paul Pringle from the Met's Operation Trinity said: "This is a case which dates back more than 40 years, but despite the length of time since the incidents, these men will now face justice for the appalling crime they committed.

“Grant and Collins abused their positions of trust within the care homes and exploited the trust placed upon them.

“The victims have had to live their lives carrying the trauma and lasting effects of the abuse imposed upon them by Grant and Collins at such young ages.

“They have shown great courage in coming forward to police and reporting the horrific abuse they endured.

“I hope today's conviction brings them some measure of closure and I would urge anyone who has been a victim of child sexual abuse to contact police. Specially trained officers will be there to support you."
