Nightclub shooter's jail sentence is doubled

A Huddersfield man’s jail sentence has been more than doubled by top judges who ruled that his sentence following a nightclub shooting was far too soft.

In the early hours of January 31 last year, Martin Roy Harriott drove with Wayne Noel Bucknor, 35, in the passenger seat to Kewz Bar on Queen Street.

Harriott is now out of prison and has until noon tomorrow to hand himself into police. The 36-year-old from Bradley was handed an 18-month jail term at Bradford Crown Court on Wednesday.

Here’s what’s happening in the rest of the world today...

EUROPE AGREES NO PHYSICAL BORDER BETWEEN N IRELAND AND REPUBLIC, SAYS MAY

Theresa May has said Europe agreed that there will be no physical border on the island of Ireland after Brexit. The Prime Minister said it was vital that the UK’s split from the EU has no impact on the Northern Ireland peace process. At the close of her involvement in the European Council summit in Brussels, Ms May said the Good Friday Agreement must be at the heart of any deal.

BARACK OBAMA URGES DEMOCRATS TO REJECT ‘POLITICS OF FEAR’ IN THINLY-VEILED ATTACK ON TRUMP
Former US president Barack Obama has called on fellow Democrats to reject the politics of “division” and “fear”. Stepping into the political spotlight for the first time since leaving the White House in January, Mr Obama did not mention President Donald Trump in two campaign speeches, but he did tell crowds that they could send a message to the rest of the country in forthcoming elections. He told a rally in Virginia in front of several thousand supporters: “Why are we deliberately trying to misunderstand each other, and be cruel to each other and put each other down? That’s not who we are.”

EVERTON FAN BANNED FROM FUTURE GAMES FOLLOWING FRACAS AGAINST LYON
The Everton fan who appeared to try and strike Lyon’s Anthony Lopes while holding a child has been banned from attending future games, the club have announced. Merseyside Police are also investigating the crowd trouble that marred Thursday’s Europa League tie at Goodison Park when Ashley Williams’ barge on Lopes sparked a second-half melee. That skirmish moved to the advertising hoardings at the Howard Kendall Gwladys Street End, at which point a man carrying a child pushed Lopes in the head before hitting out at him again.

Suspect who entered River Holme "could be in hiding"

Officers say there is still no trace of a suspected burglar who slipped their fingers and disappeared into the River Holme.

The suspect was last seen entering the river near Armitage Bridge after police were called to a burglary in Netherton in the early hours of Friday morning last week. Police pursued four men, two of whom went into the river off Armitage Road.

Three were arrested, although one of the suspects got away and was last seen making his way upstream in the river.

Police now suspect he may be in hiding or have come to some harm. The three other men arrested were released and remain under investigation.
