Tigers and Owls have happy memories of Wembley

Both Hull City and Sheffield Wednesday have had their moments at Wembley.

The Tigers were at Wembley in the FA Cup semi-finals and the final two years ago - but even more memorably, they won promotion to the Premier League for the first time in their history at Wembley in the play-off final in 2008.

Wednesday's last win in North West London was at the old Wembley when they beat Manchester United in the Rumbelows Cup final in 1991.

Chris Dawkes has been speaking to heroes from both occasions in the build up to the richest game in world football.

Jamie Lee Tye, 28, was arrested by officers from the Internet Child Abuse Team (ICAT) in 2012 after detectives executed a search warrant at his home address.

He was living in North Cotes at the time of arrest and also worked in Grimsby.

Computer equipment, a mobile phone and printed images were seized and following the examination of these items Tye was charged with offences of possession, making and distribution of indecent images of children.

Chat recovered from Tye’s computers showed that he had a sexual interest in boys aged four to 16 and he was very active in seeking out others with a similar interest.

Following a four day trial at Lincoln Crown Court Tye was found guilty of 14 offences of possessing, making and distributing images of children.

He has been sentenced to three and a half years for the distribution offences and 18 months each concurrent for the others.

A Sexual Harm Prevention Order is to remain in force until another order is made.

“We found 2,428 category A indecent images and videos, which depict the worst kind of abuse of children, and thousands more images and videos classed as category B and C - a total of 15,252 - on a number of devices and media seized. The making of these images dated back to 2004. Tye expected the Court to believe that he had absolutely no knowledge of the images or chat recovered and that these had been put on his devices by his friends. The jury saw through his lies and found him guilty of these offences."

Detectives were called to an address in Ovenden Way, Halifax at 11.47am today after receiving a report of a man with a sword.

Armed police attended and began negotiations with the man, who appeared to brandish a sword and a handgun at officers from an upstairs window.

Police cordoned off the area as negotiations continued with the man, who was alone in the property but thought to be under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

Enquiries also indicated he may have been suffering from mental health issues.

A short time later the man disappeared from sight and was believed to have lapsed into unconsciousness.

Officers forced entry to the building and found the man lying on the floor.

Distraction devices were then deployed to allow officers to safely detain the man and medical attention was requested.

Police say no shots were fired and the man was taken to hospital for further assessment.
