Police investigating an assault in Bishop’s Stortford have released CCTV images of two men they wish to speak with as part of their investigation.

A 26-year-old man and a woman were in a fast food shop on Friday 15th August when the man was involved in an argument with two men.

One of the men hit the victim on the head causing him to fall to the floor.

The two men then fled the shop.

Thankfully the victim wasn’t more seriously injured and only received bruising. I would like to speak with the two men pictured, one who is believed to be from the Chigwell, Essex, area, as they may be able to assist the investigation.

The family of Fazan Ahmed, who was killed in a hit and run incident in Hemel Hempstead on Friday evening, attended a press conference today where they urged for the driver to give himself in.

Fazan was playing football on the day after he had received his GCSE results. He was struck by a blue car, possibly a Ford Focus, which then drove on. Police believe that the car would have suffered damage in the collision and have asked garage staff and car mechanics to keep an eye out for it.

This tragedy has torn not just this family apart, but his friends and the community as a whole. To the driver we say, please come forward. Look at the devastation you have caused this family, its friends and the community as a whole.

A rottweiler at Battersea Dogs and Cats Home has finally found a new home after a media campaign to find a new owner. Staff at the home believed that Bless wasn't being adopted because of her sad expression. But after her plight was reported in the media, Geoff and Sylvia Shoesmith from Chelmsford volunteered to take her in.

Bless spent five months at the Home after being found wandering on the street. Despite her mournful expression, staff said she is an easy-going character and is well-behaved.

She’s fantastic, I can’t fault her. She’s got that sort of face that never gives much away – but as soon as you put your coat on and it’s time to take her out, then she positively bounces!
