Senior councillors at Brent Borough Council have become the first cabinet members in the UK to join in a world-wide social-media phenomenon and do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
The Ice Bucket Challenge has become a world-wide phenomenon and I am proud that my cabinet colleagues were up for the challenge. Caring for the most vulnerable in society is the top priority for this council and while, it was a fun and exhilarating thing to be a part of, we should remember that this is all designed to raise awareness of a hugely deserving cause. Motor neurone disease is a rapidly progressive and fatal disease, which can affect any adult at any time and can have a devastating impact on people’s lives, with suffers left unable to walk, talk or feed themselves.
This is why we all agreed to take part and why I’d encourage as many people as possible to make a donation.
Brent Police are investigating an allegation of rape which took place on Wednesday 15th January. Officers have released a photograph of a man they would like to speak to in connection with the assault.
A 38-year-old woman was allegedly raped at an address in Harlesden after meeting with the suspect.
He's described as Arabic in appearance with shaved eyebrows and a short beard. He's approximately 5 feet 8 inches tall and was wearing brown khaki trousers, a grey or red shirt and brown leather shoes.
The victim says he spoke with a soft voice and had a broken front tooth and brown teeth.
Animal rights charity, PETA, is offering a £1,000 reward in the hunt for those who poisoned, and killed, three dogs in a north London park.
Two bull lurchers and a springer spaniel died after swallowing poison in Fryent Country Park in Brent.
Ben Williamson from PETA said: "It is imperative that any community faced with the abuse of animals take measures to find the culprit or culprits and stop the violence. Animal abusers are a danger to everyone."
Lesley Hastings was walking her dogs at Fryent Country Park Way on Thursday evening. Two of them ate what she thought was mouldy bread. But it turned out to be poison. While she was at the vet with one dog, the other died at home.
This is such a nasty, cruel act which has killed three beloved dogs and endangered all domestic pets and wild animals, in such close proximity to a country park.
Family pets, wildlife and the amenities of a country park are factors that enhance the quality of people's lives. The owners and families of the dogs affected have suffered acute distress.
This is not simple, ignorant mischief, but criminal activity and the persons found to be responsible will be prosecuted.
We are very concerned to hear these reports.
Poisoning is a cruel and inhumane way for an animal to die and one which would have caused these dogs a great deal of suffering.
The RSPCA has offered the police any support they need in dealing with these incidents and urges anyone with any information to come forward.
