The family and friends of a 12-year-old boy from Huddersfield, who drowned a year ago whilst on holiday in Wales, are today handing over a cheque for £10,000 to the RNLI involved in the search for him.

Isaac Nash, from Kirkburton, was washed out to sea at Aberffraw on Anglesey in North Wales. A major search by Holyhead Coastguard, RNLI and the RAF helicopter lasting several days failed to find his body.

The Isaac Nash Trust was set up following the tragedy with the dream of raising over £100,000 to create a scooter park for local youngsters near where Isaac lived.

Today a number of Isaac's friends as well as his grandfather are attending Trearddur Bay RNLI lifeboat's annual open day where Isaac's parents,Adam and Zoe, will hand over the cheque.

An eighteen-year-old man from Huddersfield has been released on bail as part of an investigation in to hacking by the National Crime Agency. Five other men across the country were also arrested for allegedly using 'Lizard Stresser' - a programme that can take websites offline for up to eight hours at a time.

All six men are suspected of maliciously deploying Lizard Stresser, having bought the tool using alternative payment services such as Bitcoin in a bid to remain anonymous. Organisations believed to have been targeted by the suspects include a leading national newspaper, a school, gaming companies and a number of online retailers.

“By paying a comparatively small fee, tools like Lizard Stresser can cripple businesses financially and deprive people of access to important information and public services.

“This multi-agency operation illustrates the commitment of the NCA and its partners to pursuing people who think they can criminally disrupt important public services or legitimate businesses.”

“One of our key priorities is to engage with those on the fringes of cyber criminality, to help them understand the consequences of cyber crime and how they can channel their abilities into productive and lucrative legitimate careers.”
