‘Policeman car attack footage’ probed by Scotland Yard

Dramatic footage which appears to show a policeman attacking a car after the driver refuses to get out will be investigated, Scotland Yard said. The clip, shared on social media on Saturday and viewed around 50,000 times, shows what appears to be a police officer – filmed from the position of the driver – repeatedly telling him to “get out of the car”, adding: “You’re not allowed to drive it.”

The officer then hits the driver’s side window with what looks like a baton, before a voice can be heard saying: “I’ve got a licence. I’ve got a licence. I’ve got insurance. You’re smashing this for no reason.”

The Metropolitan Police said it is “aware of footage circulating on social media of an incident involving two uniformed officers in Camden”, adding that the incident took place at Weedington Road, north-west London, at around 5pm on Friday. In a statement, the Met said: “The footage will now be subject to an investigation by officers from the Directorate of Professional Standards (DPS).”

The policeman can be seen striking the windscreen, resulting in the glass shattering, and he then starts slicing around the damaged area with what appears to be a pen knife.

When asked by the driver what the problem is, the officer tells him he is “not allowed to drive”. The police force said on Saturday evening: “As soon as the MPS was made aware of the footage, the DPS was contacted immediately. The individual who uploaded the footage has been contacted by DPS officers.

“As this matter is in its early stages, the officers have not been suspended or placed on restricted duties. No-one was arrested during the incident.”

The video, which could not be independently verified, has been shared on Twitter and Instagram where the officer’s actions have been described as “mindless vandalism and intimidation”. A man who wanted to be referred to by just his first name, Leon, told the Press Association he was the driver and the person who filmed the footage.

He said the incident took place on Friday evening in the Gospel Oak area of north London, and said it was a case of “mistaken identity”, describing the officer’s actions as “a completely unlawful act”.

Leon, who said he spent the evening in hospital due to getting glass in his eyes, said it was “complete madness” and that he is “still in shock”.

“Every time he smashed the glass, fragments of glass were just ricocheting in my face,” he said.

Police searching paedophile’s home find teacher son’s videos of disrobing pupils

A primary school teacher who secretly filmed his pupils getting undressed was caught when police investigated his paedophile father. Detectives unwittingly discovered the webcam videos of Gary Ellins, 45, as they searched the Stockport home of his father, Jerry, last November. They seized pen drives and computer hard drives belonging to Gary Ellins which contained two videos of children in states of undress, some as young as eight, together with generic images of naked, pre-pubescent girls.

Ellins made no comment when he was arrested but pleaded guilty last month to offences of voyeurism and possessing indecent images of children. On Thursday, he was jailed at Manchester Crown Court for 12 months after a judge said he had committed a “breathtaking breach of trust”. Ellins’s father has also admitted separate offences involving indecent images of children and will be sentenced later this month, the court heard.

Ellins junior, formerly of Vernon Drive, Marple, only qualified as a teacher eight years ago after a career in commerce and property. He committed the voyeurism offences between 2010 and 2012 while working in his first teaching post at Micklehurst All Saints CE Primary School in Mossley, Tameside. Ellins installed a static camera via a laptop webcam to capture two classes who were getting changed for PE lessons.

Sentencing, Judge Martin Rudland told him: “The images clearly show you in a calculated way setting the camera up and leaving the room while the children in your care quite innocently and happily were allowed to change to prepare for gym class.

“So it was for your own personal sexual gratification you were able to obtain images in that way in a complete and breathtaking breach of trust placed in you, not only by the parents of those children but also your employers.”

Michelle Brown, defending, said her client had shown insight into the damage caused and has recognised he is someone who requires treatment and assistance. Ellins received eight-month jail terms, to run concurrently, for two counts of voyeurism, and an additonal four months in prison for six counts of possessing Catergory C indecent images of children. He must sign on the Sex Offenders Register for 10 years.

Ellins left the Mossley school in August 2012 and more recently lectured at Manchester Metropolitan University where he quit early this year after being suspended when the allegations came to light.

Following sentencing, Detective Inspector Mike Gladwin of Greater Manchester Police’s Sexual Crime Unit, said: “Ellins used his position of trust to exploit those whom he should have been protecting.

“The safeguarding of children is a priority for GMP and we have worked, and will continue to work, closely with our partners in education and local authority to ensure their safety.

“Ellins’ victims, their parents and his former colleagues who have been affected by his crimes are being supported by specially trained officers and the local authority.”

In a first, New Zealanders to get pizza through drone delivery service

In A First, New Zealanders To Get Pizza Through Drone Delivery ServiceThe US-based pizza chain announced in March it was exploring the possibility of testing a pizza delivery robot in New Zealand.WELLINGTON: New Zealand’s pizza lovers will be among the first in the world to have their favourite meal delivered by a drone, Transport Minister Simon Bridges said on Thursday

Bridges welcomed the announcement that Domino’s Pizza Enterprises had joined forces with unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) developer Flirtey to launch the drone delivery service, Xinhua news5 agency reported.

“Domino’s and Flirtey have chosen New Zealand for the trial because our forward-thinking aviation regulations6 encourage innovation, while protecting safety,” Bridges said in a statement. New aviation rules came into force in August 2015 to regulate and enable the use of UAVs for recreational and commercial purposes in New Zealand.

“The announcement of this trial confirms that New Zealand’s framework for UAVs is world-class. In addition, the government has reviewed the laws for driverless vehicles and small passenger service operators, to ensure New Zealand stays at the forefront of transport innovation,” said Bridges. The trial was also a valuable opportunity for the Civil Aviation Authority, the aviation safety regulator, to make sure that appropriate safety precautions were taken when the trial got underway later this year.

The government is also continuing to work with Domino’s on the possibility of testing a driverless pizza delivery unit on land.
