New centre named after Croydon Police Officer










Croydon’s new Custody Centre in Windmill Road was officially named after Berin Underwood, a former PC in Croydon, who was tragically killed on his way to a night duty at Addington police station in 2002.

The building was formally named ‘Berin Underwood House’ at a ceremony on Wednesday.

PC Berin Underwood was killed in an accident in Addington Road when he was on his way to start a night duty at Addington Police station on 12 November 2002.

He was travelling on his motorbike, when a car, driving on the wrong side of the road hit him - he was 39 years old at the time.

The driver of the car was subsequently found guilty of causing death by dangerous driving.

Berin had been with the MPS for just over a year, but in that time he had already established himself as an outstanding officer and was extremely well-respected by his colleagues at Croydon.

Teachers decide to strike
Today (Friday 7 September) the NUT announced members have voted in favour of both strike action, and action short of strike action to protect pay and working conditions. In the NUT's ballot 91.6% voted in favour of action short of strike action and 82.5% voted in favour of strike action with a turn out of 27%.*

We will be campaigning alongside the NASUWT to ensure that the onslaught of attacks on the teaching profession stops. Working together, the NUT and NASUWT represent 85% of teachers in England and Wales. Details of the next steps in the campaign will be outlined on Monday 10 September.

Christine Blower, General Secretary of the National Union of Teachers, the largest teachers' union, said:

"The NUT is left with no option but to take action to protect the well-being of our members and restore their rights to do their job thoroughly and properly. Teachers are being undermined by a Government whose almost daily criticisms and erosion of working conditions and pay, coming on top of previous attacks on pensions, are unacceptable. This negative approach to the profession has to stop.

"No other profession comes under such continual scrutiny and no other profession has accountability systems based on so little trust. This is bound to lower morale. It is time for Government to stop dictating to teachers and address the problems which they are creating. It is time to listen to the profession."

Zac joined local residents, ward councillors, and the council to oppose the licence, because of the risk that that it would have resulted in an increase in antisocial behaviour.

Commenting Zac said: I am pleased that Kingston Arena Ltd saw sense and withdrew their appeal. The proposal entered by Kingston Arena was unsuitable for the location, and there was a genuine concern about crime and public safety. I am glad that residents didn’t have to fight this case in court.

Pregnant mums protest at St Helier maternity closure


A group of pregnant women protested against proposals to downgrade St Helier Hospital this weekend by revealing their bumps to the cameras.




The mums are angry that NHS South West London intends to close the maternity and A&E services of St Helier hospital. The site needs to find another hospital to merge with to attain Foundation status by 2014. St George's recently pulled out of a proposed merger.

The ladies were led by Kathy McGuiness, the founder of Carshalton Mums and www.localmumsonline.com

Explaining the stunt Kathy said:

The welfare of our unborn children is at risk and we won’t stand for it. Pregnant mums want to go somewhere local, we don’t want stress when we’re at our most vulnerable. We shouldn’t have to traipse across London for our maternity care. We are outraged at the proposals and will do everything we can to stop them.

Councillor Ruth Dombey Leader of Sutton Council, who supports the protest added:

The proposals to downgrade St Helier hospital are madness and local people are furious. Sending Sutton residents to Tooting and Croydon for their A&E and maternity services is ridiculous and even dangerous.
