Power Cut warning from Spelthorne's MP

A Surrey MP is claiming that we’re facing power cuts in the next few years.

The Member for Spelthorne says we’ll have to prepare for blackouts at peak times by 2017.

David Wilshire uncovered the power shortfall in the small print of the government’s ‘low carbon transition’ plan.

The documents show that at the moment there is enough electricity to meet all our demands but that in less than 10 years there’ll be a shortfall of 3,000 megawatt hours a year – rising to 7,000 by 2025.

That’s equal to over half a million people going without power for a whole day.

The Conservative MP says the government has got to make this problem a top priority.

Explosion rocks St Helier Hospital

A fire fighter has been treated for minor injuries after a gas cylinder exploded inside an ambulance parked at St Helier hospital.

Eyewitnesses say the force of the explosion blew the roof off the vehicle outside the pathology unit earlier.

The hospital was evacuated but the London Fire Brigade says the blaze is now out.

A hospital worker who asked not to be named said there was thick black smoke everywhere, at one point it looked like two ambulances were on fire.

Residents in nearby houses also reported hearing a loud bang.

Carshalton and Wallington MP Tom Brake was on his way to see the carnage for himself at 5pm.

He told us the surrounding area was completely cordoned off. Traffic was stopped from going anywhere near the scene for some hours causing long delays in the area.

MAYFORD SUSPECT
Surrey police are asking for help from the public in finding a man - with a rather distinctive look.

He's about 30 years old, 5 feet 10 and suntanned.

On his face is a scar from his eyebrow to his nose, one tooth is missing, one ear sticks out while the other is folded forward and sewn down.

He has tattoos, including one of Betty Boo on his arm.

The man also rides a distinctive motorbike - it's red with gold wheel-rims.

He was last seen around Saunders Lane in Mayford on Friday evening.

If you've seen him since then or know who he is then Woking police would like to hear from you.
