Crime

There are reports of an attempted robbery in the small hours of this morning on Springdale Avenue, Thornton Lodge.

Police say a 22-year-old man was approached at his front door at 1.30am as he had just got back from the shop, when a suspect punched him in the back of his head. He turned around and was punched for a second time and trips on the doorstep causing him to fall to the floor.

Whilst on the floor, the suspect kicked the victim to his head and body demanding money and his phone.

The victim managed to get to his feet and ran off down the street and managed to flag down a passing vehicle. The suspect fled the scene and no property was stolen.

Looks like the pilot of the plane that crashed shortly after taking off from Crosland Moor airfield yesterday had a lucky escape.

The plane came down on the 16th fairway at the nearby Crosland Heath Golf Club, not far from where golfers were playing.

The pilot, in his 50s, was able to walk away.

The crash was reported to the Air Accident Investigation Branch. We’re just waiting to hear whether there will be a formal investigation.

Often when there are no serious injuries or major damage there is no full investigation, I understand.
