Police searching for a missing mother of three from Cheetham Hill are appealing for witnesses who saw a white campervan which they think may be connected to her disappearance. They want to contact anyone who saw it on the A19 near Thirsk in the early hours of Saturday 8 June 2013.
A landlord from Norton in North Yorkshire has been sentenced to 12 months imprisonment for failing to take adequate fire safety precautions after two jockeys died at his flats in Norton in 2009.
Alan Foster pleaded guilty to 4 breaches and was sentenced to 12 months for each, the sentences to run concurrently. He is likely to serve 6 months before he is released on licence.
It is impossible to say what the outcome would have been for Jamie Kyne and Jan Wilson had the proper fire precautions been taken. It is clear however that their deaths would have been significantly less likely but for these breaches. The deaths of these two young people are an important aggravating feature."
A man has appeared in court charged with breaching 17 fire safety regulations after the death of two jockeys in a blaze in North Yorkshire. 19-year-old Jan Wilson and 18-year-old Jamie Kyne died in a block of flats in Norton in 2009.
Alan Foster, who owns the building, entered no plea to allegations, which include problems with fire alarms and insufficient access for emergency services. His defence team reject the prosecution's claims. The case will be heard at a Crown Court in October.
Two years ago, the care-taker of the premises, Peter Brown, was jailed for a minimum of 7 and a half years for starting the fire.
