You've got to admit a story about a woman being battered to death in a particularly horrible way, being issued by a Tourist Board has got to be different!

Come to "Rotherham and die!" is not what I'd call a good point for tourism but each to his own I guess!
 
It doesn't get much more exciting than this back home in Sunderland:

Shit

but life does have it's more entertaining moments such as OAP vigilantes:

OAP Dirty Harry

Both articles courtersy of the Sunderland Echo - not exactly The Times, but close.

It's THE place for an exciting life!

Robber Chucks Bairn Across Shop

A baby girl is today lucky to be alive after an armed robber grabbed her by the throat, threatened her with a gun and hurled her six feet across the floor banging her head on a metal chair.

Eight-week-old Iqranoor Adnan was attacked after being pulled from her mother's arms by the thug, who was also brandishing a knife, during the terrifying raid on a Sheffield shop.
The baby's mum Marooj Akhtar, aged 21, of Millhouses, was helping her mother Asmat Begum, 52, at the Fashion Mahal fabric shop, in Wolseley Road, Lowfield, when the incident happened.
Marooj said: "I was petrified. I did not think he would do that to a baby - she could have been killed. You don't expect a human being to do that no matter how violent they are.
"It's left my daughter with a blood clot on the surface of her head and a big bruise at the back. After it happened she had a high temperature and she was so much in shock we had to slap her so she regained consciousness."

Marooj said: "He said 'give me your handbag'. He then started throwing things about in the shop. I gave him my bag but he said 'there's another bag, I want this lady's bag', pointing at my mum. He also picked up my baby's bag and chucked it at me."
The robber cut the telephone line with his knife and broke the phone.
Asmat was threatened and handed over a blue bag containing a substantial amount of money - but managed to sneak out of a back door and raise the alarm.
"He realised she had gone out and ran towards the front of the shop," Marooj said.
"I was holding Iqranoor but he grabbed her by her dungarees and was throttling her by the neck. He pointed his gun towards her and said 'Tell the bitch to come back or I'm going to shoot her'.
"Then he heard my mum shouting for help and threw Iqranoor across the room, landing hitting her head against a metal chair. He hit a couple of the rolls of fabric, shouted 'I'll be back', and ran out of the shop."
Marooj followed him outside and two men who were on the street chased after him, but he ran off down Staveley Road towards Chippinghouse Road and on to Broadfield Road, with Marooj's white bag under his arm.


Alleged Kiddie Fiddler Allegedly Tops Himself.

AN INQUEST has been opened into the death of a suspected paedophile whose body was found hours after a national manhunt was sparked by BBC's Crimewatch.

Mark James Ross, a 42-year-old painter and decorator from Rotherham, was wanted in connection with downloading indecent images of children.
An appeal was launched to find him on the national crimebusting programme last Thursday night .
His body was found near a railway line hours later in the early hours of Friday morning.
A Rotherham inquest heard unmarried Mr Ross was so badly injured his body "was in more than one part".
Relatives burst into tears when they heard the evidence.
British Transport Police said there were no suspicious circumstances and that his death was consistent with him having been hit by a train.


Pointless Robbery

POLICE are tracing an armed robber who raided a fish and chip shop in Thurnscoe.
The man threatened staff at the 'Fish Bar' on Lidget Lane with an unknown weapon - but not a gun - and made off with a small amount of money from the till.
Staff chased the robber, described as a white male, for a while but he managed to get away. No-one was injured in the incident, which happened at about 10pm on Tuesday (February 6), and police are appealing for information from the public.


A Pint And A Fight - A Great Yorkshire Night

The victim along with the severed ear was taken by ambulance to Doncaster Hospital and then later transferred to the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield.

Local Horticultarist In Police Shocker

CANNABIS PLANTS FOUND IN MAN'S HOME
A BOLTON man who admitted growing 33 cannabis plants at his home received a six-months suspended sentence after police accepted the drug was for his own use.
Leslie Robert Sewell, of Wath Road, pleaded guilty to cultivating the plants with a street value of £400 after police raided his home.
Barnsley Magistrates heard officers found the plants, together with an hydroponics set up and an incubator, when they executed a search warrant at the house on November 6 last year. An amount of cannabis resin was also siezed and a set of weighing scales.
Prosecuting, June Allen, said Sewell was arrested and told police he had been smoking cannabis for 15 years. He told them he had grown the plants for his own use, admitting the team had found what was his third crop of the drug.
Defending, Eric Bray, said the defendant had suffered from depression after moving to his house and was using the cannabis for self-medication. He had come across the idea of producing his own as a means of saving money and bought the cultivating equipment. His first growth had been a failure but he had persevered and two months before the offence was discovered, he had managed to grow a second crop enough to "cover the bottom of a carrier bag". When the police visited his home the third crop was in the early stages of cultivation.
Mr Bray said there were no signs he was growing it on a commercial basis and even though a set of scales had been discovered he maintained he had used them to measure ammounts of cannabis he himself had bought for his own use. No money was found in the house associated with selling drugs.

Nice to see that the paedophile had the good grace to do for us what the law will not!

Do you really mean that or just saying it for comedic effect? The passage states:

Was he a convicted paedophile? No.
Was is possible that, owing to the stress caused by the impending investigation into the allegations against him, he decided to take his own life? Yes.

Imagine yourself being in a similar situation; being accused of something that you may not have done. Think about how desperate you would be to put an end to your own life, well aware of the emotional grief to your relatives. Then criticise.

An innocent man would wait for the outcome of any investigation. I ask why he waited until after crimewatch which in most cases concentrates on serious crimes.
If he was innocent he had nothing to worry about. If not I am more concerned with innocent children than so called Kiddy fiddlers.
