A Hero From Tooting Urges People To Learn First Aid
A City worker from Tooting who helped save the life of a seriously injured cyclist is calling for people to take first aid training as the number of similar accidents soars.
36 year-old Gemma Tinson had done a St John Ambulance course, months before coming to the rescue of the woman who fell off her bike in Richmond Park.
Ms Tinson who’s also a cyclist, ensured the hurt woman was in the correct position and her airways were clear after she’d crashed at high speed.
London has the highest cycling casualty rate in Britain.
Zac Goldmith, MP for Richmond Park has today joined Animal Defenders International (ADI), the organisation spearheading the campaign to end the use of wild animals in circuses in Britain, to back a new bill introduced by former Labour Defra Minister Jim Fitzpatrick MP to ban such acts.
Parliament voted unanimously in favour of a ban in 2011, and the Government first announced that it would take action on this issue in March 2012.
A delay in bringing in a ban has seen the number of wild animal acts increase and the return of big cats to Britain.
This bill, which is identical to the one published by the Government last year and scrutinised by MPs, would ban wild animal acts by the end of 2015. posted by Radio Jackie News Team @ 12:33 pm

Police divers have started searching in the Grand Union Canal in Brentford after missing teenager Alice Gross' rucksack was found nearby.

Her bag, containing some of her personal property, was found on Tuesday.
Alice is white, 5 ft 2 inches tall, slim with shoulder-length, light brown hair.
When last seen, she was wearing dark blue jeans and a dark green lacy cardigan.
This is the backpack found earlier this week.
Her parents have confirmed she is suffering from anorexia. Her family says they are concerned that anyone she has been in contact with may not understand how serious her health condition is.

Wimbledon nursery failings revealed
Dicky Birds nursery in Wimbledon has been found to have committed a 'gross failure' after the death of a toddler.
An inquest has today ruled staff did not supervise a toddler who died after choking on raw jelly.
22 month-old Tiya Chauhan was at the Dicky Birds nursery in Dundonald Road, when she put the jelly cube in her mouth in August 2012.
It was during a 'free flow' play session, where children have free rein, that she started choking and staff didn't realise she was in trouble until it was too late.
Tiya was unconscious after only two hours at the nursery, and died the next day.
The inquest jury found that Tiya died of 'an accident contributed to by neglect'. They also said that 'inadequate communication between all staff' contributed significantly to her death.
Statement from the nursery.
At the time we did not appreciate how dangerous jelly play could be. Immediately after the tragedy, we removed all free flow and food play from our nurseries. We remain devastated that the tragedy of this day two years ago cannot be undone and our thoughts remain with Tiya’s family.posted by Radio Jackie News Team @ 6:02 pm

Battersea urges MPs to help stop unregulated trade in puppies and kittens
On the eve of a Parliamentary debate, the charity is calling on MPs to shake up the regulation of the sale of puppies and kittens.
It has joined with other rescue organisations and campaigners to support the House of Commons debate which will question whether existing laws surrounding the breeding and sale of dogs provides enough protection to pet animals and their owners.
The Parliamentary debate was sparked by Pup Aid campaigner and celebrity vet Marc Abraham, after he collected over 111,500 signatures to a petition calling for a ban on puppy farming, irresponsible breeding and the sale of puppies and kittens for profit in pet shops.
13 dogs every single day come through Battersea’s gates, many under three years old, with far too many of them having been bought on impulse, then abandoned when they lose their initial puppy appeal.

Esher are back in action on Saturday against Cinderford.
Esher's last home game of the year saw them face off against Premiership side Wasps.
The top-flight team bought down a side stacked full of international talent, including new Wasps skipper James Haskell, plus Joe Launchbury, Christian Wade and former England fly-half Andy Goode.
The game was a structured affair with just 30 minute halves to allow each side one final match before the start of each other's respective season's on September 6th.
Wasps showed their intent to play to their full potential early on and a penalty try was awarded to the High Wycombe men after several minutes camped on Esher's line.
Wasps centre and capped Barbarian Elliot Daly quickly added another try after a searing run, only for Esher to concede another penalty try on their line once again. Fijian powerhouse Nathan Hughes finished off the first half scoring by crashing over for Wasps' fourth try.
There were no conversions taken during the match to increase playing time and Esher went in to the changing rooms with a 20-0 deficit.
In the second half Esher conceded six tries as scrums became non contested but the rest of the match flowed as normal.
The men from Molesey Road showed some grit and determination to play attractive rugby against Wasps, never letting up and creating good contests at the breakdown, several times getting close to scoring.
However, Wasps international stars shone throughout in the second half, with flyer Christian Wade scorching from 70 metres out to score a try and Joe Launchbury showing his versatility at the line-out as well as open play to cross the whitewash.
This Saturday's kick off is at 3pm.posted by Radio Jackie News Team @ 12:25 pm
