Could Peter Tobin be responsible for death of Hounslow girl?

Police are reportedly ready to look into the possibility convicted serial killer Peter Tobin murdered more girls.

The 63 year old was jailed last year for the murders of Polish student Angelika Kluk in 2006 and Dinah McNichol and Vicky Hamilton in 1991.

Dinah hitched a lift back to Essex with Tobin and was last seen on the M25 at Reigate Hill.

Both Dinah's and Vicky Hamilton's remains were discovered buried in Tobin's garden in Margate.

Now police are ready to look into a number of other unsolved murders and missing files including;

Patsy Morris

The 14-year-old disappeared in London, in 1980. Her body was discovered hidden in undergrowth on Hounslow Heath, in mid-summer.

Her father, George Morris, believes that she might have been one of Tobin's victims.

"As soon as I read about the other girl's body being found in his backyard, something inside me clicked," he said.

Patsy's family have previously claimed her disappearance was linked with Levi Bellfield, currently in jail for a number of attempted murders and murders in South West London.

Cycle ride to Brighton to combat heart disease: update

A man from Wimbledon is hoping to beat his target of £1,900 pounds when he cycles to Brighton on Father's Day.

Phil Brooks and his team mates The Free Wheelers, including his nephew and two nieces, have raised just over £1,000 for The British Heart Foundation so far.

Team message: At the beginning of the year we decided to set ourselves a challenge and that is to cycle the 54 mile London to Brighton Bike Ride in aid of the British Heart Foundation. This is an important charity that I'm sure most of you are familiar with and is helping everyday to create a world where people do not die prematurely of heart disease.

Yes...we have started training and getting the miles in on our bikes so that we are ready to take part and tackle the ups and downs, all the way to the sunny seaside on Sunday 20th June.

It should be a great day and all we ask is for you to be as generous as you can and sponsor us for a very worthy cause, anything is greatly appreciated...the money that jangles and even the money that folds, whatever you can offer is fantastic.

Full steam ahead for St Helier redevelopment

Plans to spend £219 million redeveloping St Helier Hospital have been given the go-ahead by the new coalition Government.

The proposals, which were agreed by the last Government in March, had been subject to a review by HM Treasury along with £34 billion of other projects from across the UK.

Whilst £11 billion of projects have been cancelled or put on hold, the St Helier scheme has been given the green light. The Treasury review was based on three tests: whether the project was affordable; if it delivered value for money; and, whether it remained a genuine priority for the Government.

The announcement, which was made by the new Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Danny Alexander, has been welcomed by staff from across the Trust, as well as patients and local people.

First for Wimbledon based Dad's House

A pioneering debate for single fathers in Britain to create dialog with government on support took place last night in Westminster.

This year, Dads House and Only Dads,hosted a debate in The Houses of Parliament on to address the ongoing concerns surrounding single fathers post divorce, separation and bereavement.

To date green papers, such as Support For All, have failed to address the grave issues facing fathers and current policies continue to neglect their needs.

Single fathers and their children can feel very much alone at a time in their lives when they really need support.

Current research suggests that there are at least 238,000 children living with their fathers.

The fact that there remains a huge gap in relation to widely available information in this area is testament to the pressing need to highlight these issues.

Battersea presents its World Cup kittens

To celebrate the World Cup, Battersea Dogs & Cats Home has announced its own squad of 11 kittens, all named after England’s top players.

The furry team are just some of the 52 kittens at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home looking for new homes this June. Could you adopt a Rooney, Lampard, Crouch or Cole?

All of the kittens will be ready to move into their new homes this month and will have been microchipped and had their first vaccination.

Most of the kittens were born here after their mothers came into the Home and are being cared for in foster homes until they find new owners. However Gerrard, Lennon and Johnson were found in a box left next to a skip in London, and brought into Battersea.

Rehomer Ros Davies says: “All of the kittens are great fun to be around and will make brilliant companions. We don’t want any to be left sitting on the bench this summer.”

She adds: “With the World Cup coming up, more people are likely to be spending their summer at home rather than abroad. For some this is the ideal time to rehome a kitten, as they can dedicate more time getting to know their new pet.”
