Police release audio of phone call. Do you recognise this voice?

Police in Bedfordshire have released an audio clip of a man they want to trace in connection with a burglary in Luton.

The man called for a taxi from Wodecroft Road in the early hours of Saturday, October 25.

A home had been burgled in the road during the same night and offenders stole a number of electrical items including a large flat screen television.

The taxi firm recorded the audio after the caller could not identify the number he was calling from.

Detective Constable Scott Hannam said:

“We are keen to identify the man who is recorded makingthe call for a taxi as we believe he may have important information which could assist our investigation.

“I would urge anyone who recognises his voice, or for the man himself, to contact police.

“I am also keen to hear from anyone who has any information or saw a large television being carried around this area on the night in question.”

NHS workers say they're worse off than in 2010

Health workers from across our region have been taking part in a four hour strike as part of an ongoing dispute with the Government over pay.

Many NHS staff including ambulance crews and midwive at the top of their pay bands, say they haven't had a pay rise in five years and are now far worse off in real terms than they were in 2010.

In a statement though the Department of Health told us no-one would see their pay frozen.

"The 55% of NHS staff not receiving a 1% increase will get an incremental increase - the average incremental increase is 3% and the highest is 6%. The remaining 45% of staff will get a 1% increase this year and a 2% increase next year."
