A former Croydon University hospital worker has been jailed for blackmail after threatening to disclose private sexual photographs unless he was paid

27 year old Patryk Hrymak appeared at Croydon Crown Court where he was sentenced to two years and four months imprisonment in connection with eight counts of blackmail and two counts of disclosing photographs and films with intent to cause distress.

Hrymak would meet the victims on a dating app, before moving the conversation to online messaging and exchanging naked images.

He would give the victim the impression that he intended to meet up with them but before that, he would insist they confirm who they were by providing social media profile details.

When he had gained access to the victim’s phone number and social media contacts, Hrymak would threaten to send their naked images to their social media contacts unless they paid him.

Many of the victims blocked Hrymak and reported him to police.

However one victim paid him £120 in order to prevent him sending the images.

In six of the eight cases, Hrymak sent images to the victim’s contacts.

Officers arrested Hrymak at his home address and he was subsequently charged with eight counts of blackmail and two counts of disclosing photographs and films with intent to cause distress.

He pleaded guilty to all counts.

The start of the new season has been anything but straightforward for Carshalton Athletic defender Daniel Pappoe

Photo credit: Ian Gerrard

The Robins finally got off the mark in their third league game as they defeated visiting Bishop’s Stortford 4-2 last weekend.

Pappoe headed in Carshalton’s third goal meaning the centre back has gone from goalkeeper to goalscorer in the space of a week.

He had to don the gloves on the opening day of the season after teammate Billy Bishop was injured in the first-half at Potter Bar Town and there was no straight replacement.

But the 25 year-old has taken it all in stride as he aims to help his club continue forward positively.

“The first two games didn’t go our way but when we click, like we did last Saturday, it’s better and I think there is still more to come from us,” said Pappoe.

“I’ll play anywhere for the team and we had other defenders on the bench at Potters Bar, so I didn’t mind the manager asking me to go in goal.

“But I think I look better in our red kit than the yellow goalkeeper one!”

Striker Omar Koroma got Carshalton off to a flyer against the visiting Blues last weekend by smashing in the opener on just three minutes.

And, although Stortford equalised on the quarter hour, the Robins’ held a 2-1 half-time lead as Jerry Amoo won and subsequently converted a 32nd minute spot-kick.

Enter Pappoe – he headed home a free kick his first of the season and, although Stortford again reduced the arrears through seasoned striker Jamie Cureton, Koroma grabbed his second of the afternoon to settle the nerves of the home fans.

“One of my aims is to help the strikers if I can by chipping in with goals from set-pieces and help the team win," smiled Pappoe, “so hopefully there will be more to come.”

Carshalton’s next game is away at local rivals Corinthian Casuals, a club that defeated the Robins three times last season.

"We aren't too worried about what has happened before," insisted Pappoe.

"This is a new season and we go out to every game believing we can win. If we play to our utmost then we can beat anyone and we'll be up for this challenge."

Carshalton Athletic vs Corinthian Casuals is on Saturday, kick-off 3pm.

Today marks 30 years since the Marchioness disaster

51 people died when the pleasure-boat The Marchioness was hit twice by the dredger Bowbelle at about 1:46am near Southwark Bridge.

It’s believed the Bowbelle struck the Marchioness from the rear, causing her to turn, where she was hit again, and caught under the Bowbelle’s bow.

She sank in just 30 seconds.

One of those on board was former England Rugby captain Lawrence Dallaglio’s sister.

Francesca had enjoyed a dinner at the family home in Barnes before she and her boyfriend boarded the pleasure-boat.

At 19, she was the youngest of the victims, with Dallaglio saying many years later how the incident was “incredibly traumatic” and blew him away.

Flashing lights on bridges and a system for tracking river traffic were among steps taken to reduce crashes on the Thames.

But probably the biggest safety feature to come out of the tragedy, was the creation of the RNLI’s four London lifeboat stations, Gravesend, Teddington, Tower and Chiswick.

Tower and Chiswick remain the busiest in the whole of the UK.
