Karen Buckley: Police Search Park And Flats

We use cookies to give you the best experience. If you do nothing we'll assume that it's ok.

Police searching for Glasgow student Karen Buckley are scouring the area around a flat where she spent the night and a park where her handbag has been found.

Dozens of officers have been deployed to Dawsholm Park following the find - and a helicopter is aiding the search.

The 24-year-old went missing in the early hours of Sunday after leaving the flat of Alexander Pacteau, who she met on a night out.

Mr Pacteau is not a suspect but communal areas outside his flat in Dorchester Avenue have been taped off while officers look for clues.

He has told officers she left at 4am. The Irish student has not been seen since.

Parking Notice Gives Clue To Kate's Due Date

Parking restrictions are being put in place near the hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge is due to give birth to her second child.

The restrictions, detailed on yellow signs outside the private Lindo wing of St Mary's Hospital in Paddington, come into force tomorrow.

They run until 30 April, suggesting the Duchess will give birth by this date at the latest.

Her due date has not been confirmed but reports have suggested it is around 25 April.

There is speculation that the baby, which will be fourth in line to the throne, could arrive on the Queen's birthday on 21 April, or William and Kate's fourth wedding anniversary on 29 April.

Kate is already on maternity leave and will return to St Mary's for the birth following the delivery of Prince George there two years ago.

She and Prince William chose the Lindo Wing as the place to have their first child, following in the footsteps of Diana, Princess of Wales, who gave birth to both her sons there.

Official confirmation that the Duchess is in labour is expected to come from Kensington Palace once she has been admitted to hospital.

'Third' Of GPs Thinking Of Quitting Before 2020

A third of GPs are thinking about retiring from general practice in the next five years, according to a survey of thousands of doctors.

Nearly four in 10 (37%) said their workload was too much to deal with, while 53% said it was tough but generally manageable.

Two-thirds (68%) also told the British Medical Association (BMA) that they experienced significant work-related stress, but insisted they could deal with it.

Just one in six said they were unable to handle the stress of their job.

The BMA survey questioned 15,560 GPs and also found one in five trainees (19%) was already thinking about writing off work in the UK in favour of a job abroad.

The doctors' association said it raised doubts over political promises to dramatically boost GP numbers over the next five years.

Dr Chaand Nagpaul, BMA GP committee chair, said the survey painted a bleak picture of frustrated GPs facing "burnout" and swamped by "pointless paperwork".

"In this climate, it is absurd that in the recent leaders' debate, political parties were attempting to outbid each other on the number of GPs they could magically produce in the next parliament," said Dr Nagpaul.

The head of the Royal College of GPs went further and said the pressures on GPs posed a "genuine danger to patient safety".

Dr Maureen Baker said: "Highly trained and experienced GPs are leaving the profession in growing numbers because of the intense and increasing pressures that we are facing, and not enough medical students are entering general practice to replace them.

"This is a genuine danger to patient safety - and to the wellbeing of hardworking family doctors and our teams."

"We simply don't have enough GPs to cope with the increasing demand of our growing and ageing population," added Dr Baker.

Rory McIlroy Takes On 50 Shades Star At Footy

By David Blevins, Ireland Correspondent

He may still be chasing the career grand slam in golf but Rory McIlroy has won the bragging rights on the football pitch.

His friend, actor Jamie Dornan, challenged him to a match and the video of the golfer's 2-1 victory has gone viral.

They agreed to play circular soccer, a new concept in the game, devised by Jamie Dornan's father, medical professor Jim Dornan.

Professor Dornan explained: "Modern soccer is all about triangle, triangle, triangle, shoot; triangle, triangle, triangle, shoot; so [with circular soccer] the kids are getting more chance to win the ball, pass the ball and score.

"You're doing that constantly, which is what kids want to do, what people want to do, win the ball, pass the ball, set it up, slot it into the net."

Circular soccer, played at a faster pace in a smaller area, was trialled during the World Cup in Rio and developed by FIFA.

It has been fine-tuned by former Manchester United Elite Academy coach Jackie Evans, the father of footballers Jonny and Corry Evans.

He explained: "When kids are playing football in a wide area obviously there are periods in the game where they're just not active, they're not taking part in the game, they're not participating, whereas this is completely different.

"We can set this down in a small area, it's quite intense, it's quite tiring and the kids get lots of touches of the ball, which in turn you'd like to think the more touches of the ball they get, the more they're going to improve as footballers."

The concept has been hailed as the biggest contribution to football since an Armagh man invented the penalty kick a century ago.

Like most new initiatives, there will be 50 shades of opinion but the box office record-breaking Northern Irish actor is impressed.

"I'm really proud of dad for launching circular soccer," said Jamie Dornan.  

"I've great memories of playing a version of the game in the garden as a kid.  It's a great concept, and I can see it having a global appeal."

Russian Navy Enters Channel On Way To Exercises

Written By nana jamaika on Selasa, 14 April 2015 | 18.54

Warships from Russia's Northern Fleet have entered the English Channel ahead of planned anti-aircraft and anti-submarine drills.

The vessels are due to carry out the military exercises in the north Atlantic, according to the Interfax news agency.

The Ministry of Defence confirmed the Royal Navy's HMS Argyll is monitoring the three Russian ships as they travel through the Channel.

While it is not unusual for Russian warships to travel through the Channel, the incident comes at a time of heightened tensions over Russia's military activities.

Last month Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered major military manoeuvres involving 40,000 servicemen to be carried out in the Arctic.

Mr Putin ordered the manoeuvres in order to check the battle readiness of the Northern Fleet.

Russian news agencies reported that more than 50 ships and submarines would take part in the drills.

In February, the Royal Navy revealed it had intercepted a Russian frigate and monitored the vessel's passage through the Channel.

HMS Argyll, a Type 23 frigate with advanced Artisan radar, used a Lynx helicopter and sensors to locate and monitor the Russian warship.

Missing Glasgow Student: Man In CCTV Traced

Detectives searching for a student who vanished two days ago have tracked down a man she was seen speaking to on CCTV.

Karen Buckley, 24, was last seen on the footage outside the Sanctuary nightclub in Glasgow in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The CCTV showed her talking to a man outside the club and then walking away from the club.

Officers say that man has now been traced and is "helping police with inquiries".

The Glasgow Caledonian University student, from Cork in Ireland, got to the Sanctuary just before midnight and at around 1am told friends she was going to the lavatory.

But she did not go back to her friends, nor did she take her jacket.

Her friends later raised the alarm, saying it was "very out of character" for her not to return home.

A major search is under way in the west end of Glasgow, with police carrying out door-to-door inquiries and a Facebook page has been set up.

Her family has also flown to Scotland from Ireland to help with the search.

Ms Buckley is between 5ft and 5ft 2in with brown eyes and dark hair which had long black curly extensions in it.

She was last seen wearing a black jumpsuit, red high-heeled shoes and carrying a black handbag.

She speaks with an Irish accent.

Inspector Gavin Smith, of Police Scotland, said: "Friends reported Karen missing on Sunday 12 April after feeling her behaviour to not return home was very out of character.

"Her friends say she would always contact them by text or phone to let them know where she was and she doesn't appear to have contacted anyone.

"We are interested in speaking to anyone who may have seen Karen in the early hours of Sunday morning in the west end of Glasgow in order to help with our inquiries to locate her.

"Karen had been drinking alcohol with her friends but they say she was not drunk and are very worried about her.

"Her parents have also flown over from Ireland as they believe this behaviour is very unusual and not like Karen at all.

"I would urge anyone who may have seen Karen at all on Saturday night into Sunday morning to get in touch with police on 101 with any information at all."

Sterling Faces Warning Over Laughing Gas Claim

Liverpool star Raheem Sterling could face a stern talking-to about his actions off the pitch after a video appeared to show him inhaling laughing gas.

The club's manager, Brendan Rodgers, said it was not the behaviour of a top sportsman and that it would be dealt with "internally".

"For me it is something that when you are a professional sportsperson at the top level of the game, I don't think it is something you should be doing. It is as simple as that," said Rodgers.

"But I will speak to him on it, to see what he says on it. As you can imagine, I have only seen this today."

The 20-year-old, who scored during Monday's 2-0 win over Newcastle, is pictured on the front of today's Sun, inhaling what it says is nitrous oxide.

The paper claims the video shows him seemingly passing out after taking a hit of the gas, used by some as a legal high and nicknamed "hippie crack".

The controversy comes amid uncertainty over the player's future at the club - he recently rejected a new £100,000-a-week contract.

Rodgers added: "We want players here who are super-professional and focused on their football. I know he is.

"He very much is focused on his football and improving as a player.

"As I have said before, young players make mistakes. As long as they learn from them, that is what is important."

PPI Scandal: Clydesdale Handed £20.7m Fine

A £20.7m fine has been slapped on Clydesdale Bank for failures in its handling of payment protection insurance (PPI) complaints and attempts to mislead the City regulator.

The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) said the penalty was the largest it had imposed for failings relating to PPI - a product mis-sold by the financial services industry that has cost it billions in redress and administration to date.

The watchdog said the fine partly reflected "inappropriate policies" introduced in mid-2011 by Clydesdale which meant its PPI complaint handlers were "not taking into account all relevant documents when deciding how to deal with complaints".

The statement continued: "In addition, between May 2012 and June 2013, Clydesdale provided false information to the Financial Ombudsman Service in response to requests for evidence of the records Clydesdale held on PPI policies sold to individual customers.

"A team within Clydesdale's PPI complaint handling operation altered certain system print outs (in a small number of cases) to make it look as if Clydesdale held no relevant documents and deleted all PPI information from a separate print out listing the products sold to the customer.

"These practices were not known to or authorised by Clydesdale's PPI leadership team or more senior management."

The regulator said that as a result of Clydesdale's conduct, of the 126,600 PPI complaints decided between May 2011 and July 2013, up to 42,200 may have been rejected unfairly and up to 50,900 upheld complaints may have resulted in inadequate redress.

The FCA confirmed the bank would be contacting customers affected as Clydesdale continued to review past cases.

Georgina Philippou, acting director of enforcement and market oversight at the FCA, said: "Clydesdale's failings were unacceptable and fell well below the standard the FCA expects.

"The fact that Clydesdale misled the Financial Ombudsman by providing false information about the information it held is particularly serious and this is reflected in the size of the fine."

Clydesdale qualified for a 30% reduction on the size of the fine because it settled the case early, the FCA said.

Acting chief executive of Clydesdale and Yorkshire Banks, Debbie Crosbie, said: "In 2011 we introduced changes to our policies and procedures that were designed to help us respond to PPI complaints.

"A number of these changes were inappropriate and have disadvantaged some of our customers. We got this wrong and I am sorry for that.

"We deeply regret any instance which led to the Financial Ombudsman Service receiving incorrect or incomplete information from us.

"These practices were not authorised or condoned by the Banks. As soon as this issue was discovered, we took immediate steps to stop it; we made the regulator aware and rapidly introduced strict new monitoring procedures to prevent any recurrence."

Hotter Than Spain! UK Set For Deckchair Weather

Written By nana jamaika on Senin, 13 April 2015 | 18.54

Britain is set to enjoy the hottest weather of the year so far this week - with expected highs of up to 26C making it hotter than parts of Spain.

The highs are likely to be 10C above average for the time of year.

And the good news is set to keep coming for sun seekers.

The Met Office has confirmed that hotter-than-average temperatures are more than twice as likely than below-average conditions until June.

The unusual highs come after snow was recorded in parts of the Pennines on Sunday.

Sky weather presenter Isobel lang said: "We will be wearing shorts and sunscreen this week, with temperatures set to reach around 23C on Tuesday across the South East and perhaps 25C or 26C on Wednesday.

"The warm and strong sunshine will mainly affect England and Wales, with the Midlands, East Anglia and southern England recording the highest temperatures.

"However a front will continue to affect the North West, bringing persistent rain and cooler conditions to much of Scotland and at times Northern Ireland and Cumbria."

Wednesday is likely to be the warmest day of the year so far for much of Britain, with the mercury reaching up to 26C in London and the South East - higher than Alicante (22C) and Madrid (18C).

The same front affecting the North will bring some showers and cooler temperatures to the South later in the week, with drier, warmer weather replacing the gloom elsewhere.

Lang said: "The outlook is for plenty more fine weather although the South may see some patchy rain for a time over the weekend.

"Into next week, high pressure should bring more warmth and sunshine but it may not last all week long with signs of more unsettled conditions spreading in from the West."

'Syria-Bound' Briton To Be Sent Home To UK

One of nine Britons held in Turkey on suspicion of trying to illegally enter Syria is being flown back to the UK, Sky News understands.

Waheed Ahmed - the son of Rochdale councillor Shakil Ahmed - will fly from Dalaman into Birmingham overnight today, according to Sky sources.

The remaining eight will return on Tuesday, it is understood.

All of the group are from the same family.

Mr Ahmed, 21, was with his aunt, two cousins and one of their wives when they were stopped in Turkey, near the Syrian border. They had four children with them.

Most of the group flew from Manchester on 27 March but Mr Ahmed joined them three days later on a flight from Birmingham.

There were reportedly concerns about his behaviour in the months before he was arrested.

Mohammed Shafiq, who is a friend of Shakil Ahmed, said of Waheed: "There were concerns in the last six months to a year about a change in his behaviour.

"And a change in his attitude towards various different issues."

He also told Sky News: "That was causing concern for people in the community and his family."

Other family members detained include Zareeda Bi, 47, Maboob Yasin, 22, Habib Yasin, 24, Samia Bi, 22, and youngsters aged one, three, eight and 11.

Police are trying to establish their reason for travelling to the Syrian border.

The Foreign Office said it did not comment on individual cases.

Officers have searched at least five homes in the Manchester area, including that of the Labour councillor.

Cllr Ahmed said he thought his son had been in Birmingham on a work placement when he discovered that he had been detained in Turkey.
