Twitter troll who made Jo Cox killing threats admits further charges

A man who threatened an MP she would “get it like Jo Cox” just days after the Batley & Spen MP was murdered has admitted further similar charges today.

Serial Twitter troll John Nimmo previously sent the threatening emails to Luciana Berger telling her to “watch her back” and calling her “Jewish scum”.

Nimmo, 28, today admitted three further charges at Newcastle Crown Court relating to tweets he sent to someone else telling them they were “dead meat” and claiming to be from the far-right terror group National Action.

Nimmo, from South Shields, was remanded into custody and will be sentenced next month.

Man jailed for death-defying M62 police car chase

A man has been jailed for three years after leading police on a high speed chase on the M62 reaching speeds of up to 120mph.

Daryl Cook, 33, had only been released from prison two days earlier when he was pursued by officers along the motorway in a chase the judge described as the worst he had seen where there had been no injuries or fatalities.

Cook, of no fixed address, was first spotted driving at 100mph in Lincolnshire, then again between junctions 29 and 22. The pursuit last month saw Cook weave in and out of the hard shoulder before he left the motorway at junction 22 and sped towards Sowerby Bridge at up to 80mph on the wrong side of the road.

The court heard Cook eventually crashed the Corsa - which he had stolen from a house in Kent - into a wall after going through a set of red lights on the A672. He was jailed for three years at Bradford Crown Court, banned from driving for four years and ordered to take a re-test at the end of that period.

Good news for clubbers

A regular night-outer in Leeds? Police say today the city has been awarded a Purple Flag status for safe nights out.

The status, similar to Blue Flag badges for beaches, is awarded to cities with vibrant night life that is safe and well-managed.

The award is testament to all the work that we and are partner agencies have been doing for a number of years now to keep people safe in the night-time economy.”
