Very sad tale at Bradford Crown Court today. Samira Lupidi, 24, from Heckmondwike sobbed in the dock as she went on trial accused of murdering 17-month-old Jasmine Weaver and three-year-old Evelyn Lupidi at a women’s refuge.

At one point, Lupidi was so upset she had to leave the courtroom as prosecutors outlined how the girls were found in their beds, each with nine stab wounds to the chest.

The jury heard how she claimed she killed her daughters to spite her partner, saying: “If I can’t have them, he can’t have them either”, a jury has heard.

Local News:

Grandparents, aunts and uncles, and friends of families with children under the age of six are being encouraged to consider fencing off, covering or, even better, filling in their garden ponds to help prevent childhood drowning.


As much of the country basks in its first period of very warm weather this year, family safety charity RoSPA hopes that all those who have young children visiting their gardens will think about taking steps to separate children from water.


On average five children under the age of six die every year from drowning after falling into a garden pond, many after escaping supervision for just a few seconds. There is also an unknown number who have life-changing injuries.


Although many parents take action to remove the risk of ponds from their own homes, these accidents also happen in the gardens of those related to, or friends of, the children who die.


David Walker, leisure safety manager at RoSPA, said: “Children under six are most vulnerable to drowning in the home and garden as they are naturally inquisitive and drawn to water, and at this age cannot get themselves out of trouble if they fall in.


“Once they reach the age of six this vulnerability disappears, so any changes to garden ponds need only be temporary.”

More than 8,000 primary and secondary school students in Yorkshire and the Humber learned life saving first aid with charity St John Ambulance thanks to a Government grant.



The “Character Education” funding meant 160 schools in the region benefited from free training sessions in vital skills such as how to put someone in the recovery position or give chest compressions (CPR).



And as part of the programme, scores of schools have gone on to appoint teachers and students as “First Aid Champions” and set up after-school first aid clubs, which are eligible for training equipment and further support from St John Ambulance.



Paul Cairns, the charity’s schools and community projects co-ordinator for the region, said: “It has been a great success, we’ve had superb feedback. We have done the training, identified and equipped the champions and are ready to create on-going learning via clubs and assemblies, creating a legacy of first aid in schools.”

If you’re planning a bbq tonight, make sure you stay safe.

Here’s a cautionary tale from the weekend:

A barbecue caused a shed to burst into flames.

Firefighters from Cleckheaton tackled a fire that had engulfed part of the structure in a garden on Barrington Parade after being called out at 11.20pm on Sunday.

They also fought to extinguish a fire on an adjoining fence which was left partially destroyed.

It started after a disposable bbq that had not been properly extinguished was placed on wood attached to the shed.

Dan Gledhill, watch commander, warned others to take caution.

He said: “We would like to ask people to make sure that their bbq is fully extinguished after use. “If it is a disposable one, water should be poured onto it.”
