Hundreds of people have lined the streets of Camberley to see the officers and staff from the Royal Military Academy (RMA) at Sandhurst march through the town centre in an historic parade.
The 250 personnel from the RMA, including a military band were celebrating being granted the Freedom of the Borough by Surrey Heath Borough Council. The honour gives them the right to march on ceremonial occasions. The event also commemorated the centenary of World War One. Richard Slee reports.
The interviewee is Major General Stuart Skeates, Commandant, Royal Military Academy Sandhurst
After three men were hit by lightning in Camberley yesterday, here's some advice for people across the South in case lightning strikes near them.
There are three different ways of being hit by lightning.
There's the direct strike where the lightning hits you and goes to earth through you and the side flash where the lightning hits another object and jumps sideways to hit you. There's also a ground strike, which strikes the ground then travels through it, hitting you on the way.
What to do if a storm happens near you?
-Seek shelter and make yourself as small a target by crouching down with your head tucked in.
-Do not shelter beneath tall trees as one in four people are struck seeking refuge under them.
-Get out of water and off of beaches as water can transmit strikes from further away.
-Beware of objects that can conduct or attract lightning such as: golf clubs, umbrella, wire fencing and rails.
-Do not use a mobile or landline until the storm is over as it could conduct the lightening.
-Seek shelter quickly if your hair begins to stand on end and appliances begin buzzing - it may mean lightning is just about to strike.
Police in Camberley are urging householders to step up their home security following a number of burglaries in the Watchetts and St Michaels area of Camberley where gold has been stolen.
I want to make residents aware of these recent burglaries and to urge homeowners to take steps now to improve their home security. Asian jewellery is being targeted for the gold which tends to be of a higher purity and therefore has a higher resale value.
– Detective Constable Richard Pegden
If anyone has any information about these burglaries or saw anything suspicious please call Surrey Police on 101 quoting reference 45140011544.
