Urgent care hubs to 
be piloted in spring 


ANNA SAVVA 

@AnnaSawaCN 


CAMBRIDGESHIRE and Pe¬ 
terborough Clinical Com¬ 
missioning Group says it will 
pilot local urgent care hubs 
(LUCS) in the spring. 

The new urgent care mod¬ 
els will replace the threat¬ 
ened minor injuries units in 
Ely, Doddington and Wisbe¬ 
ch and have been developed 
following consultations with 
GPs, nurse practitioners and 
the public last year. 

Phase one will bring GP 
expertise to MIUs, working 
alongside the nurse prac¬ 
titioner teams to create a 
more joined up service that 
eases the strain on A&E ser¬ 
vices. 

If the pilots are successful 
three LUCS hubs will be cre¬ 
ated in new purpose-built 
centres (rural care hubs). 

In a statement released 
this week the Quality Care 
Commission said: “We ex¬ 
pect to be able to update 


Have your say at 
cambridge-news.co.uk/ 
all-about/ely 

on the models in early Feb¬ 
ruary. We have identified 
significant opportunities to 
deliver more joined-up, ef¬ 
fective and efficient local 
urgent primary care services 
which take into account the 
rural geography, local depri¬ 
vation and demography.” 

The news has been wel¬ 
comed by Lucy Frazer, MP 
for South East Cambridgesh¬ 
ire. Ms Frazer has been cam¬ 
paigning since last year to 
maintain the MIUs and en¬ 
hance the service operated 
locally. 

Earlier this month she 
met Andrew Pike, the re¬ 
gional director of the NHS 
to make clear the strength of 
feeling regarding maintain¬ 
ing the minor injuries unit at 
the Princess of Wales. 

At that meeting Ms Frazer 
drew to Mr Pike’s attention 
the petition which had been 
collected locally over the 


previous months. 

More recently she met lo¬ 
cal health officials at a meet¬ 
ing in Westminster, arranged 
by Steve Barclay MP, where 
the MIUs were further dis¬ 
cussed. 

Lucy said: “I am pleased 
that the CCG have listened 
to the loud voice of local 
people and understand 
the strength of feeling lo¬ 
cally about maintaining the 
MIUs. 

“We know that care de¬ 
livered locally is very im¬ 
portant to residents. I am 
pleased that the CCG are 
considering piloting a solu¬ 
tion which not only retains 
the service but enhances it. 

“Pilots are the first step in 
ensuring that the MIUs can 
operate effectively. We are 
not yet at the stage where 
the solution is fixed but I am 
extremely encouraged by 
the positive progress that is 
being made.”

MISSING 

TABLETS: 

The minor 
injuries unit 
at Ely 



Unit nurse stole 
212 painkillers 


FREYA LENG 

@freyalengCN 


A SENIOR nurse who 
worked at the minor inju¬ 
ries unit in Ely has been sus¬ 
pended from the register for 
12 months for stealing 212 
codeine tablets. 

Daniel Holmes received a 
caution from Cambridgesh¬ 
ire police on July 21 last year 
for possession of a class 
B drug and theft from an 
employer after admitting 
to stealing the medication 
the month before, a Nurs¬ 
ing and Midwifery Council 
panel heard. 

COMMUNITY 


Codeine losses were iden¬ 
tified at Urgent Care Cam¬ 
bridgeshire’s Ely Centre in 
May and June 2016, which 
is run by Cambridge and 
Peterborough NHS Founda¬ 
tion Trust (CPFT). 

It was found that 212 
tablets had gone missing 
between May 24 and June 
13 and Mr Holmes was sus¬ 
pended on June 15. 

Mr Holmes, who admitted 
both charges, apologised by 
email for his actions and ex¬ 
plained he “had been suffer¬ 
ing from severe toothache”. 
He resigned the same day. 

Alaric Walmsley, repre¬ 


senting Mr Holmes, told the 
panel “this was wholly out of 
character and had occurred 
over approximately three 
weeks in an otherwise un¬ 
blemished 20 years nursing 
career”. 

A CPFT spokesman 
said: “As soon as we were 
made aware of the allega¬ 
tions, we took immedi¬ 
ate action suspending the 
nurse and the relevant 
regulatory authorities were 
informed.

Business offers help to young carers 


AN ELY business is calling on 
people to nominate a young 
carer who could do with a 
helping hand. 

Milton Executive Cars 
is offering to sponsor one 
young carer for 12 months, 
in order to help them pursue 
their ambitions. 

It could be for something 
practical, like learning a skill 
to be used long term. All 
applications will be assessed 
and the one it feels it can 
make the biggest difference 
to will be chosen. 

A spokeswoman for 
Milton Executive Cars said: 
"We have noticed how 
desperately under-supported 
young carers are and wanted 


to do something to make a 
difference. We wanted to 
do something to support 
young carers awareness 
and wanted to make sure it 
was something that could 
be ongoing more than just 
monetary donations. 

"We plan to support the 
young carer in a way that 
helps them achieve their 
potential. As you may be 
aware, young carers often 
have no schooling, social 
roups or support and can 
e very segregated. So for 
example, if someone wanted 
to play guitar we would fund 
that, if they wanted admin 
experience we would source 
that." 


This is the first year the 
company has decided to 
run the scheme and follows 
on from its charity event in 
aid of the National Autistic 
Society in September. 

To apply include the 
carer's full name and 
date of birth, as well as 
the needs of the person 
they are caring for. Note 
the current support the 
young carer receives and 
include an address and 
a paragraph explaining 
what they would like to 
do when they grow up 
and why. Please send your 
applications FAO Gabrielle 
to: Milton Executive Cars, 
5A Quayside, Ely, CB7 4BA.

REELING IN THE CUSTOMERS: A cinema will take centre stage in Ely's new leisure 
village. 



RESCUE 

Horses are 
abandoned 
by roadside 

AN ANIMAL sanctuary is 
appealing for help after two 
horses were found abandoned by 
the roadside. 

Isleham Horse and Pony 
Rescue, between Ely and 
Newmarket, found the black 
and white cobs dumped by the 
entrance of the centre two weeks 
ago. 

After treating them with 
emergency care and some TLC 
they now need around £1,000 to 
help pay for the costs of keeping 
the stallion and baby colt they've 
dubbed Ken and Bruce. 

Appealing for help on the 
centre's Facebook page, a rescuer 
said "Ken was carrying a vast 
amount of weight in the way of 
matted hair and mud both around 
his feet and tail. His tail was so 
long he walked on it with every 
step he took, with blood on his 
muzzle and hooves that clearly 
have never been near a farrier 
as they have grown under and 
require a huge amount of work." 

Both boys are now eating 
well and are starting to show 
an interest in being fed by 
hand rather than the bowl. The 
rescuers say Ken even likes a Polo 
mint or two.

SITE developers of the high¬ 
ly anticipated £15.7 mil¬ 
lion Ely Leisure Village have 
announced it will open in 
April. 

The centerpiece of the 
six-and-a-half-acre lei¬ 

sure park, by the A10 at 
Downham Road, will be a 
six-screen Cineworld cin¬ 
ema, situated alongside a 
McDonalds, Costa Coffee, 
Frankie & Benny’s, Hungry 
Horse and KFC. 

Burger takeaway and de¬ 
livery outlet Chosen Bun 
- which started life on Lon¬ 
don’s Fulham Road - and lo¬ 
cal family-owned diner Ar- 
buckles will join the group 
when the site opens at the 
end of April. 

Property director at Cine- 
world, Kevin Frost, said: 
“Once again our develop¬ 
ment partner Turnstone has 
delivered. Chosen Bun and 
Arbuckles are an excellent 
addition to the restaurant 
mix. We look forward to 


opening our new cinema in 
May.” 

The leisure village, which 
will have 380 car parking 
spaces, together with an 
underpass, will also address 
the lack of leisure provision 
north of Cambridge. 

Residents have said the 
development has been a 
long time coming. 

One said: “It’s what we 
needed a long time ago. 
People can’t wait they are 
so excited about it. So many 
people are saying it’s just 
what Ely needs so I think it 
will be really good for the lo¬ 
cal community.” 

It is also being champi¬ 
oned by developers as meet¬ 
ing the growing needs of the 
Ely area, which is set to see 
5,500 new homes over the 
next few years. 

East Cambridge District 
Council has also earmarked 
space nearby to house a new 
swimming pool and leisure 
centre complex, which de¬ 
velopers will carry out in 
phase two of the project, 
due to open in early 2018. 

The scheme will be ac¬ 


cessed via two new junc¬ 
tions to Downham Road, to 
be shared by nearby sports 
clubs and the phase two de¬ 
velopment, together with an 
underpass for pedestrians 
and cyclists. 

Director of Turnstone 
Estates, Tim Deacon, said: 
“There is no leisure provi¬ 
sion north of Cambridge 
and coupled with the pro¬ 
posed swimming and lei¬ 
sure centre in phase two, 
this is set to be become a 
major leisure destination.” 

Fund manager at Stand¬ 
ard Life Investments, Sandy 
Pringle, said: “Ely Leisure 
Village will form an out¬ 
standing new leisure facility 
for the growing city of Ely. 

“The addition of these 
two restaurants will further 
boost the development’s 
appeal. Due to the attrac¬ 
tive and unique tenant mix, 
this investment will provide 
the fund with a stable, long 
term income stream.”

the services provided at our 
local Minor Injury Unit and, 
indeed, that they propose

Thai van man’s 
foodie appeal 


A CHEF has set up a unique 
crowd-funder to get his 
street food dreams on the 
road. 

Colby Smith, 31, from Ely, 
needs £2,000 to refurbish 
his catering van with new 
gas and electric equipment 
that would see his business 
idea up and running. 

Every donation will be 
worth its weight in curry 
once the business is estab¬ 
lished. For every £10 given, 
he’ll give the donor a vouch¬ 
er for a Thai main, spring 
rolls and drink. 

“The trailer was given to 
me by my girlfriend’s mum. 
She is a Thai chef and is 
teaching me the recipes 
as well, but it needs some 
work to get it on the road,” 
said Colby who has raised 
£1,225 so far. 

“The aim is to start off in 
Ely market then expand out

to Cambridge and the sur¬ 
rounding areas. 

“It’s had a new roof but 
needs new equipment as 
well as a gas and electric 
certificate, to make it legal 
by the council’s standards. 
There are a few hoops you 
have to jump through for 
that.” 

Colby, who was inspired 
to set up the business af¬ 
ter some bad experiences 
in Cambridge restaurant 
kitchens, hopes to tour fes¬ 
tivals in the summer, in¬

POLICE 

Concern over rural road s 


A POLICE video showing 
a van involved in a near 
miss with a woman trying 
to cross a road with her 
two horses has prompted 
calls for speed limits to be 
reduced on rural roads. 

She is seen looking 
carefully before having to 
take a step back to dodge 
the white van. 

East Cambridgeshire 
residents have expressed 
concerns about the 60 mph 
limit on Red Fen Road, Little 


Thetford, which is also used 
by dog walkers and farmers, 
after Cambridgeshire police 
tweeted the footage of the 
incident last week. 

Police have admitted that 
the current limit appears 
"to be inappropriate even 
in the best of weather". 

Community Sgt Phil 
Priestley, said: "I will 
be meeting with the 
representatives of the 
parish and district council 
so that we can collectively 


non-stop and that’s when I 
realised I didn’t want to see 
myself turn into a shouty 
Gordon Ramsey chef. 

“It’s a high stress atmos¬ 
phere. 

“It was a bit of a come 
down from going to catering 
college because it was a bit 
hard to do your own thing. 
You just get told ‘that’s the 
menu, you’ve got to do 
that’ and there is a limited 
amount of creativity.” 

Colby, who currently 
works as a painter and dec¬ 
orator, has not given up on 
his passion for food and has 
already had donations from 
as far afield as Dubai.

COUNCIL 


County council fails to agree 
budget for coming year 


JOSH THOMAS 

f @JoshThomasCN 


THE county council faces an “unbal¬ 
anced and unapproved” budget after 
councillors failed to come to an agree¬ 
ment over the coming year’s finance. 

Cambridgeshire County Council’s 
general purposes committee met last 
week to try to agree a budget recom¬ 
mendation for 2017-2018. Council¬ 
lors discussed raising council tax to 
help pay for services in the face of fi¬ 
nancial cuts. 

Because of the structure of the 
council, which has no controlling 
party, no group was able to take over¬ 
all control of the situation and parties 
disagreed on how funds should best 
be allocated. 

Labour leader Cllr Ashley Walsh 
said: “This county council is in a pin- 
cer movement. By 2020, not a single 
penny of revenue support grant will 
come to this council. At the same 
time, we have one of the most age¬ 
ing and growing populations in the 
country. There is a world of difference 
between transformation savings and 
unfair and vicious cuts.” 

Council officer Chris Malyon said: 
“A £4 million budget deficit has been 
identified. Mechanisms have been 



POINTS OF VIEW: Councillors Ashley Walsh, John Hipkin, Peter Reeve and David Jenkins all took part in the budget debate 


identified to bridge that gap.” 

Labour proposed an alternative 
budget where council tax was raised 
by 5 per cent, with a 3 per cent in¬ 
crease in social care precept. 

The Lib Dems also suggested a rise 
in council tax would be beneficial. 
They suggested a 4 per cent increase 
in council tax, with a 2 per cent rise in 
the social care precept. 

UKIP called for a freeze in council 
tax, while the Conservatives favoured 
having no increase in council tax, but 
a 2 per cent rise in the social care pre¬ 


cept. 

All of these amendments were 
voted down by the committee, which 
could not agree on the suggestions. 

Cllr John Hipkin supported the idea 
of raising council tax to help pay for 
services. 

He said: “Even at times of terrible 
austerity, we have to go for the maxi¬ 
mum tax increase we can possibly 
get.” 

UBQP’s Cllr Peter Reeve said: “This 
council is draining households of 
their resources through taxation. 


“We believe council tax affects the 
less well off. It puts an unnecessary 
strain on the general public.” 

Lib Dem councillor David Jenkins 
said the Conservative proposals were 
“financially illiterate”, and said they 
were “management by hope”. 

Cllr Steve Count, leader of the coun¬ 
ty council, defended the amendment, 
saying it was balanced and workable. 

As the committee failed to agree a 
budget, the decision will now go to 
the full council, which will meet on 
Lebruary 14. 



FEARS: Cllr Lucy Nethsingha 


'Cuts would 
see health 
care suffer' 

CLLR Lucy Nethsingha said 
spending cuts would put too 
much pressure on the county's 
health care system. 

She said: "Major care 
providers are talking about 
the acute pressure on the 
care system. The funding cuts 
are simply unsustainable. 
Week after week, we hear 
about crucial operations not 
happening. Cllr Ed Cearns 
has been a victim of this. His 
operation was cancelled last 
week. He is just one of many 
who have gone to hospital 
only to go home because there 
are no beds available." 

The Conservatives said 
they would invest an extra 
£60,000 for mental health care 
provision. 

Cllr David Jenkins said the 
idea for £60,000 investment 
in mental health services was 
never brought up with him 
as chairman of the health 
committee.

More cash may

EXTRA NHS funding, without better 
management, is not necessarily the 
panacea that many people believe 
it to be. 

Hospitals are designed to treat sick 
people and then discharge them, 
unless they have nowhere suitable 
to go, in which case it becomes the 
responsibility of social services, who 
are often reluctant. They should be 
coerced by government to do this, or 
suffer financial penalties. 

If social services provided 
adequate co-operation, they could 
be rewarded with an increase on 
their present ring-fenced 3 per cent 
and be financed by a proportion 
of money destined for the NHS. As 
it costs four times more to keep a 
patient in hospital, the NHS would 
also benefit with more money and 
also regain the 20 per cent "lost" 
beds. 

Persistent refusal should result in 
this responsibility being delegated to 
an independent authority to provide 
temporary respite for convalescing 
patients. It could also facilitate 
atients arriving by ambulance if no 
eds are available at that hospital, 
which would enable ambulances 
to be remobilised more quickly. It 
would also relieve patients' anxieties 
who are intimidated into occupying 
trolleys in gangways which may 
also be considered a risk to health 
and safety. It could be funded, at 
least in part, with money that had 
been offered to social services and 
subsidised with what we waste on 
so-called foreign aid.

Trident is not 
for defence 

ONCE again we learn that a Trident 
nuclear missile swerved in the wrong 
direction when it was launched. This 
is not new - it happened several 
years ago and it appears it still 
malfunctions. 

In the light of this, Parliament still 
had to vote on renewing Trident 
without being told of this failure. The 
cost of renewing is some £40 billion, 
to be spent on a deadly missile that 
is uncontrollable. The Prime Minister 
said she has every confidence in 
this missile, and said we need it to 
defend our country and said those 
who oppose its renewal don't believe 
in defending our country. 

I think it should be made perfectly 
clear and everybody told, that in no 
way does the existence of Trident 
defend our country in any shape 
or form. If ever we were attacked 
on a massive scale Trident would 
have failed as a deterrent. What it 
stands for is a threat of a retaliatory 
response if such an attack took 
place. 

Whether it can fly straight to 
any target or not, it is capable 
of delivering something of 
unimaginable evil. Knowing this I 
think the whole country ought to 
be told why Parliament was not 
made aware of this malfunction yet 
again when they were asked to vote. 
Especially when it appears that to 
be accredited as an MP you must 


support Trident or be discredited.

Mental health 
affects young 

CHILDHOOD should be a 
special time, packed full of happy 
memories. But for too many 
youngsters it is a struggle, as they 
battle with emotional and mental 
health illnesses, and do not get the 
support they so desperately need. 

Barnardo's is extremely concerned 
about the scale of the problem in 
the UK. Three children in every 
classroom are suffering from a 
diagnosable mental health problem. 
This can lead to young people being 
disruptive, difficult, withdrawn and 
disturbed, and it's vital they are 
supported and not just ignored or 
told off. 

It was very welcome to recently 
hear Theresa May pledging to tackle 
the issue - and ensure it is as high 
a priority for the Government as 
physical health problems. 

We want to see a dual approach 
combining early intervention and 
prevention, and quicker access to 
Child and Adolescent Mental Health 
Services (CAHMS). 

Supporting vulnerable children 
is at the heart of Barnardo's work. 

In primary schools we offer two 
programmes, one for the younger 


children and then another for 
older ones as they prepare to start 
secondary school. The sooner the 
problems are picked up, the sooner 
they can be treated.

I want record 
to continue 

IT seems that I've annoyed C A 
Nottage (Letters 26-01-17) regarding 
the European Union. Fair enough. I 
believe in free speech. I have a right 
to annoy him/her and he/she has a 
right to reply. 

So far as his/her point about 
him/her being old now but having 
been young when the then young 
generation were led into what 
became the EU by 'the older 
generation of the day' I would 
respectfully respond by suggesting 
that older people are not always right 
and not always wrong either. Some 
learn from the mistakes that they 
and others make or have made. 'The 
older generation of the day' recalled 
all too clearly what a hash had been 
made of Europe by preceding older 
generations. They wanted never to 
see the hash re-hashed, and I thank 
them for it. We have had no major 
conflicts in Europe for nearly 72 
years, which is probably a record, a 
record which I would like us all to 
keep making bigger and longer and 


stronger. 

So far as my friend Alan Seymour's 
letter is concerned, the claim that 
young people here are better off 
than are similar young people 
elsewhere must be viewed with the 
background that the UK is still in the 
EU, not out - yet. As to what the 
future holds for our young people if 
and when the UK is out of the EU, 
who knows?

Intolerance is 
unacceptable 

IN last week's paper (25/1/201 7), 

Mr Nottage wrote in response to Mr 
Woollard's pro-EU stance that if Mr 
Woollard couldn't help to create a 
better UK out of the EU, he could 
leave the UK. 

Mr Nottage's intolerance is 
unacceptable in a civilised society. 
Geoffrey Woollard has a record 
of public service on local councils 
and school governing boards. Forty 
years ago he was a key figure in the 
campaign to save Burwell and Reach 
Lodes. He has always been a man 
of strong opinions. It is worrying 
for the future of this country when 
intolerant people suggest that others 
leave the country because they do 
not accept their differences.

SPOILT FOR CHOICE: Real ale came straight from the barrel 


VISITORS raised a glass to 
some of the region’s finest 
real ales and ciders at the 
weekend as they sampled 
the delights of a popular beer 
festival. 

Ely and District Branch of 
CAMRA held its eighth Ely- 
sian Winter Beer Festival on 
Friday and Saturday at The 
Maltings in Ely. 

Drinkers enjoyed a choice 
of more than 80 real ales and 
ciders with some ales from 
brand new micro-breweries 
as well as beers from the 
north of England, the Mid¬ 
lands and East Anglia. 

Cider fans were not disap¬ 
pointed with Moonshine, 
Xtreme, Three Blind Mice 
and Bexar County to try. 

The festival - which prom¬ 
ised to be “a right winter 
warmer of a beer festival” is 
thought to be the biggest and 
best in the Ely area, offering 
the most diverse range of 


DOWN THE HATCH: Several real ales and ciders were on offer 


beers. 

Money was also collected 
at the festival for its nominat¬ 
ed charities, EARTH Ely and 
the Volunteer Bureau. 

Tony Gimbert, festival or¬ 
ganiser, said: “The range of 


ales and ciders on offer has 
been chosen to reflect the 
diverse array of tastes and 
styles of ales, including a 
range of milds, cask lagers 
and ciders and we hope that 
there will be at least one beer 


to suit each customer’s pal¬ 
ate. 

“With this in mind it rein¬ 
forces the claim that we are 
the biggest and best festival 
in the Ely area offering the 
most diverse range of beers.”

In her weekly 
column for 
Ely News, MP 
for South East 
Cambridgeshire 
Lucy Frazer 
discusses the 
European Union 
(Notification of 
Withdrawal) Bill 



B rexit is back in 
the headlines, 
not that it's 
ever been very 
far away. 

The Supreme Court 
ruling of last week 
determined that the 
Prime Minister may 
not trigger Article 50 
(the only mechanism 
for a member state to 
leave the European 
Union) without an 
Act of Parliament. 

In its ruling, the 
Supreme Court 
pointed out that it 
was determining a 
legal point rather 
than a political one 
and that the case 
had nothing to do 
"with issues such as 
the wisdom of the 
decision to withdraw 
from the EU, the 
terms of withdrawal, 
the timetable or 
arrangements for 
withdrawal, or the 
details of any future 
relationship with 
the EU." So what 
happens now? 

As a result of the 
ruling, the European 
Union (Notification of 
Withdrawal) Bill was 
published and given 
its first reading last 
Thursday, January 26, 
and is being debated 
this week in the 
House of Commons, 
starting with an 
extended sitting till 
midnight on Tuesday, 
January 31. 

The Brexit 
Secretary, David 
Davis MF) has said 
about the Bill, "it 
will be the most 
straightforward Bill 
possible to give 
effect to the decision 
of the people and 
respect the Supreme 
Court's judgment. 


The purpose of the 
Bill is simply to give 
the Government 
the power to invoke 
Article 50 and begin 
the process of leaving 
the European Union. 
That is what the 
British people voted 
for, and it is what 
they would expect." 

Unusually, the Bill's 
second reading has 
been time-tabled to 
take place over two 
days (the last Bill 
to have been given 
time to be debated 
over two days at 
second reading 
was the House of 
Lords Reform Bill 
2012-13). The Bill 
is then expected to 
be considered in a 
committee of the 
whole House next 
week and will then 
go to the House of 
Lords. If the Lords 
amend the Bill, it will 
then return to the 
House of Commons 
but the aim is that the 
Bill be passed in time 
for the Government 
to meet its goal of 
triggering Article 50 
by March 31. 

I voted to remain 
in the European 
Union but we live in 
a democracy and that 
means we have to 
respect the outcome 
of a national vote. 

We must now focus 
on getting the best 
deal, for us both 
locally and nationally.

SOLIDARITY: Pupils light candles at the Service of Remembrance 


Students mark Holocaust memorial day 


STUDENTS and staff from 
King's Ely Senior and King's 
Ely Junior came together to 
mark National Holocaust 
Memorial Day. 

The theme of the Service 
of Remembrance at Ely 
Cathedral was 'How can life 
go on?' and students reflected 
on how this was possible in 
the light of The Holocaust, 
and, on this occasion, the 
genocide in Rwanda in 1994. 

Pupils and staff heard the 


story of a teacher in Rwanda 
who lost his family in the 
genocide. They heard how 
his new hope came from the 
birth of his second son, whom 
he named after his father, and 
by the gift of his farm to the 
man who hid him when the 
rival factions were fighting. 

Students were also able 
to light candles as a sign of 
solidarity with those who 
had survived and in memory 
of those whose lives were 


suddenly ended in order to 
show that they too had a part 
in preventing atrocities like 
this happening. 

Holocaust Memorial Day 
on January 27 is a national 
commemoration day in 
the UK dedicated to the 
remembrance of those who 
suffered in The Holocaust, 
under Nazi persecution, and 
in subsequent genocides in 
Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia 
and Darfur.

Anglian Water to 
pay for pollution 


ANGLIAN Water has agreed 
to pay thousands of pounds 
to The Wildlife Trust after the 
company polluted a drain in 
Sutton with raw sewage. 

The Environment Agency 
accepted the offer from the 
water company to put right 
any damage caused by the 
pollution and a donation to 
an environmental charity 

An enforcement under¬ 
taking (EU) has been agreed 
with Anglian Water to donate 
£20,000 to benefit local envi¬ 
ronment schemes. 

As part of the EU, the mon¬ 
ey will be split between the 
Wildlife Trust for Bedford¬ 
shire, Cambridgeshire and 
Northamptonshire to benefit 
the local environment and 
the Environment Agency so 
that it can recover its costs. 

Environment Agency di¬ 
rector Peter Kellett said: 
“Enforcement undertakings 
allow those who commit of¬ 
fences to restore the environ¬ 
ment and to take steps to pre¬ 
vent a recurrence. 

“When appropriate, they 


ANNA SAVVA 

@AnnaSawaCN 


allow a quicker resolution 
than a prosecution and help 
offenders who are prepared 
to take responsibility for their 
actions to put things right vol¬ 
untarily working with their lo¬ 
cal communities.” 

Formal sample results tak¬ 
en after the incident in 2015 
showed that crude sewage 
had grossly polluted approxi¬ 
mately 840m of a field drain 
and a further 400m of the di¬ 
vision drain which it led into. 

A large quantity of rag (pa¬ 
per and sanitary items), sol¬ 
ids and sewage sludge were 
also found in the field drain 
around the point of discharge 
and immediately down¬ 
stream. 

A float alarm failed to trig¬ 
ger, which should have noti¬ 
fied the company there was 
an unconsented discharge af¬ 
ter the sewer became blocked. 

Anglian Water arranged for 


the sewer to be unblocked 
and for tankers to clean up 
the polluted drain. The sewer 
had been checked 10 days be¬ 
fore. 

Since the incident the com¬ 
pany has also changed the 
frequency of checking from 
nine to six months and the 
alarm has been supplement¬ 
ed with a more advanced 
alarm system and the float re¬

Poor Fella has cancer

A CELEBRITY pig, who achieved internet 
fame after he was saved from the chop at a 
farm three years ago, has inoperable cancer. 

Fella, the wildboar cross who lives in So¬ 
ham with his owner Emily Keates, was due to 
undergo an operation to remove three ten¬ 
nis ball-sized tumours from his abdomen 
last Wednesday. 

But top vets at the University of Cam¬ 
bridge’s Veterinary School said he has inop¬ 
erable tumours all over his abdomen and 
biopsy results confirmed the worst, he has 
terminal cancer and weeks left to live. 

“His prognosis is awful and I’m completely 
devastated,” said Emily. “He has tumours all 
over his abdomen and they won’t operate. 
Super Vet can’t help either.” 

“They say he has weeks left to live. I’m still 
contacting people and researching alternate 
and herbal remedies. 

“If he passes, legally his body has to be de¬ 
stroyed and I can’t have him cremated. This 
is making me sick to my stomach as he’s my 
best friend and want to give him the right to a 
respectful passing.” 

Emily first noticed something was wrong 
when Fella started losing his hair in Novem¬ 
ber, but it was only three weeks ago that she 
thought something seemed “really wrong” 
because he had lost two stone in weight. 

After appealing for help, Channel 4’s Super 
Vet answered the call, but Emily opted for 
the university’s vet school which said it could 
carry out the same treatment nearer to home. 


HOUSE PIG: Emily says she will make Fella's last days as comfortable as possible. 


“My heart is completely broken, he’s my 
best companion and I expected him to live 
beyond 30 and would always be with me,” 
said Emily. 

Fella, who has more than 13,000 followers 
on Facebook, grew up in the home of his ve¬ 


gan rescuer and her three dogs for the first 18 
months of his life after she saved him from 
certain death on an Essex farm. 

Since then he has been treated more like a 
dog by the financial administrator, who has 
been working from home since he got ill.

COMMUNITY 


Theatre group aims to 
unlock teens’ potential 



STAR POTENTIAL: Previous graduates of the youth theatre scheme. 


THE National Youth Arts Trust 
(NYAT) is running auditions for 
new members to join its youth 
theatre company in Ely 

This month NYAT is inviting 
students, aged 13 to 19 from Ely 
schools, to audition to be part of 
the group which aims to ‘inspire 
and unearth emerging talent’. 

It is hoped that through ‘confi¬ 
dence building and teamwork ex¬ 
ercises’ participants can unlock 
their creative potential in drama. 

Previous graduates have al¬ 
ready credited it as a springboard 
for further arts education. 

One member said: “joining the 
NYAT youth theatre has by far 
been one of the best experiences 
of my life. 

“I would never be off to study 
acting at university without their 
help. Anything is possible when 
you join this company.” 

The group also aims to promote 
greater inclusion in the perform¬ 
ing arts, regardless of income, 
status or background. 

It was founded in 2013 by 
award-winning theatre director 
Fiona Laird, to address the cur¬ 
rent and on-going crisis in the 
funding of arts education. 


ANNA SAVVA 

@AnnaSawaCN 


Longtime NYAT patron, actor 
Ewan McGregor, said: “The Na¬ 
tional Youth Arts Trust has been 
started so that everyone, whatev¬ 
er their background or financial 
status, can have the chance for an 
education in the arts.” 

Under the guidance of expe¬ 
rienced theatre practitioners, 
weekly workshops are held every 
Saturday afternoon during term 
times and cover a range of skills. 

This includes script writing 
and devising work, to acting 
techniques, physical theatre, im¬ 
provisation skills, movement and 
voice. 

Auditions are on February 4 at 
12pm in the King’s Ely Recital Hall 
on Barton Road. 

To register interest or for more 
information email: admin@na- 
tionalyouthartstrustorg.uk , or

Libraries to 
greet touring 
collections 


CAMBRIDGESHIRE Libraries have 
developed six new roving book 
collections, with the help of donations 
from Amazon. 

Targeted mainly at younger 
audiences, the collections are designed 
to tour smaller, community-focused 
libraries. 

The collections are themed around 
science, technology and coding to 
encourage users of the service to 
expand their horizons and develop new 
skills. 

From this month, they will be housed 
at six selected community libraries, 
Cambridge, Arbury Court, Sawston, 
Chatteris, Fulbourn and Somersham, 
for a minimum of four months before 
moving on to the next locations. 

Cambridgeshire County Council and 
Amazon are working in partnership to 
improve local access to library services. 

Since the donation of new non¬ 
fiction collections to the mobile library 
service in September, there has been a 
substantial 30 per cent increase in non¬ 
fiction borrowing. 

The donation of the roving collection 
has been bolstered by the Amazon- 
funded installation of a solar panel 
on the Cambridge mobile library, to 
help power on-board, energy-efficient 
batteries that run the service. 

Cllr Mac McGuire, said: "We're 
delighted with the six new book 
collections, and know they will prove 
popular with young people."

EMERGENCY SERVICES 


BOOKS 


Firefighters' 
warning over 
home objects 

FIREFIGHTERS have warned 
residents to be careful with everyday 
household items after a vanity mirror 
caused a house fire. 

A mirror left on the windowsill of 
a dressing room - adjoining a first 
floor bedroom - set light to two 
wooden jewellery boxes at a home in 
Witchford on January 24. 

The fire then spread and smashed 
the window glass. The owner 
returned to find the house in Main 
Street filled with smoke. 

A fire engine from Ely was sent to 
the property just after 4pm. 

Firefighters used a positive pressure 
ventilation fan to clear smoke from 
the property and returned to their 
station by 5.22pm. 

Station Commander Dave Allen 
said: "There was a very strong sun all 
day and it was magnifying against the 
wooden jewellery boxes, setting them 
and the windowsill on fire. 

"It caused significant damage to 
the window frame and windowsill 
and smoke damage throughout the 
property. They were fortunate they 
didn't have any curtains on the 
windowsill because they would have 
been the first thing to ignite and 
the outcome could have been a lot 
worse." 

The fire service recently launched 
a 'Register my Appliance' day. More 
information can be found on their 
Facebook page. 


Beau’s beautiful life: finding 
happiness through despair 



I 

SILVER LINING: 


Beau has faced his difficulties head on to inspire others. 



A YOUNG voice over actor from So- 
ham is inspiring others with his jour¬ 
ney from despair to happiness. 

Beau Bridgland, who does voice 
over work for animation, video games 
and commercials, shares the lessons 
he learned growing up in the battle¬ 
ground of depression. 

Despite having a very happy child¬ 
hood, during his time at university he 
developed clinical depression, severe 
anxiety and low self-esteem. 

His book Day-to-Day Happiness 
recounts how he overcame his debili¬ 
tating difficulties and shares his solu¬ 
tions as he found them. 

By relentlessly challenging his 
negative thinking he has managed 
to build a niche for himself as a voice 
over actor and plans to move to Los 
Angeles to pursue his talent full-time. 

“I have to thank my good friend 
Penny Abshire - a voice actress and 
writer of the book’s foreword,” said 
Beau. “I met her at a voice-over con¬ 
vention in America called Voice 2012 
and after telling her all about my ex¬ 
periences with depression and anxi¬ 
ety, how I overcame them and how I 
ended up on this wonderful Ameri¬ 
can adventure she said that I should 
write a book. 

“I have always loved helping people 


ANNA SAVVA 

@AnnaSawaCN 


and I absolutely hated depression, 
anxiety and low self-esteem, but have 
really come so far in these last few 
years, so if I can help other people 
to also deal with their problems then 
that is really wonderful.” 

By asking questions of himself, 
Beau carefully analyses problems, 
compartmentalises them to turn neg¬ 
ative thinking into positive thoughts. 

He shares these techniques 
through a number of easy-to-use ex¬ 
ercises that focus challenging nega¬ 
tive thoughts and language. 

Olympia Publishers say the result 
is a remarkable and honest ‘lifestyle 
manual’ that almost everyone can re¬ 
late to and use to maintain a sense of 
self-fulfilment. 

The book is available in paperback 
from the Olympia Publishers’ website 
( olympiapublishers.com ) on Amazon 
and at book shops, priced £6.99.

Eclectic line-up for festival 


T HE box office has opened for one of the 
summer's most anticipated events: Ely 
Folk Festival 2017. 

This year's festival is headlined by folk 
superstar Seth Lakeman, who is set to bring 
his internationally renowned performances of 
song and fiddle to the stage. 

He'll be backed by an eclectic line-up of 
artists across the weekend including Spooky 
Men's Chorale, pictured, billed as a large 
group of Australian blokes singing about all 
that is important in a bloke's life (and more) 
who are making their first appearance at the 
festival. 


Flossie Malavialle will blend the 'best of 
French and Geordie music traditions and 
humour, while The Hot Rock Pilgrims are a 
young old-time bluegrass group who organisers 
say will 'take you on a high energy pilgrimage 
of Appalachian music and its descendants'. 

These great acts will be joined by many 
more over the weekend, including Scottish 
high-energy band The Elephant Sessions, 
guitarist extraordinaire Hans Theessink, 
celebrated harmony duo O'Hooley & Tidow, 
Cajun band Elvis Fontenot, Celtic pipers Ross 
Ainslie and Jarlath Henderson. 

The festival also plays host to three ceilidhs 


over the weekend, a Local Bands Showcase, 
kids' activities, morris dancing, workshops, a 
real ale bar and meet and greet sessions. 

Popular 'meet the artists sessions' will 
also allow festival goers to get 'up close and 
personal' to some of the artists performing 
over the weekend. 

The folk festival is a not-for-profit annual 
event run by a committee of volunteers whose 
mission is to 'reflect the rich diversity of the 
modern folk and roots music scene, with a 
mixture of established favourites and newer 
talent'. 

With a focus on all things 'unplugged' it 


allows folksters the chance to get close to the 
main stages and also encourages audience 
participation through workshops, dances, 
sessions and the option to perform in the club 
tent. 

The box office opened on February 1 and 
the festival will be held over the weekend of 
July 7- 9. Early bird reduced price weekend 
tickets are available until June 1 starting at £72 
per adult. 

Tickets for each day can also be purchased 
and start at £25. For details on how to book 
tickets and for a full line-up visit: www.

^SPOTTHE 






T HERE'S a tremendous trepida¬ 
tion in returning to the 
Edinburgh underworld of 
Trainspotting 20 years after the 
intoxicating original. 

How could this long-fermenting 
sequel compete with the defining film of 
the Britpop era? It offered a startlingly 
stark vision of modern Scotland, a 
famously ferocious soundtrack and 
career highs from the actors. I shouldn’t 
have worried. 

Having allowed the material to seethe 
and stew, director Danny Boyle cooks up 
another tremendous cocktail of 
drug-taking, violence and prostitution. 

For all the drugs consumed 
on screen, the strength of 
the chemistry between 
the actors is what makes 
this such an addictive 
hit of pure cinema. 

Ewan McGregor, 


T2 TRAINSPOTTING (18) 

★★★★★ 

Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and 
Robert Carlyle are older, heavier, sadder 
but no wiser, as Renton, Spud, Sick Boy 
and Begbie. The one-time youthful 
hedonists are now living in less than 
comfortable middle age. All the actors 
bring a maturity to their work, giving the 
characters a beaten, weary melancholy. 

Noticeably missing from 
the advertising posters is 
Renton's old squeeze, Diane. 
And her appearance in the 
film played by Kelly 
Macdonald, is sadly all 
too brief. 

After a long absence, Renton 
returns to Edinburgh. In the 
meantime he has been living off 
the cash he robbed from his 


pals in the first movie. 

Sweet-natured Spud is once again 
trying to go clean. SickBoy considers 
Renton a rival. Begbie remains as 
psychotic as ever and provides much of 
the momentum for the chaos which 


ensues. 

Using Irvine Welsh’s novel Porno as a 
starting point and filming in his typically 
high energy style, Boyle has created an 
abrasive tale of loyalty and friendship. 
T2 understands it won't capture the 
youthful Zeitgeist in the same way 
Trainspotting did in 1996. 

It drowns in large shots of nostalgia, 
regret and wasted lives. The sharp and 
funny script chooses to honour the 
characters by allowing them to mature 
disgracefully, while still being sympa¬ 
thetic towards them. 

Take a deep breath. Choose cinema. 
Choose first class. Choose Trainspotting 2. 
Review by Chris Hunneysett 




ALSO SHOWING 


DENIAL (12A) 

★★★★★ 

THE timing of director 
Mick Jackson's drama, 
based on a real-life 
courtroom battle 
between two historians 
with radically different 
views of the Holocaust, 
is uncanny in this age 
of "alternative facts'! A 
high-profile libel lawsuit between Holocaust 
denier David Irving and Penguin Books Ltd, 
representing American author Deborah Lipstadt, 
took more than three years to resolve before a 
final ruling in April 2000. 

Lipstadt (Rachel Weisz) holds the chair in 
Jewish And Holocaust Studies at Emory 
University. 

She receives a call from Anthony Forbes-Watson 
(Pip Carter), managing director of Penguin Books. 

Irving (Timothy Spall) intends to file a lawsuit in 
London because the company has refused to 
withdraw her book, Denying The Holocaust: The 
Growing Assault On Truth And Memory, which 
repeatedly mentions Irving and which he claims is 
robbing him "of his reputation as a professional 
historian',' setting up a legal confrontation with 
deep implications. 

Denial provides an accessible route into 
complex legal arguments, anchored by strong 
performances from Weisz and Spall on opposite 
sides of the heated debate. 

SING (U) 

★★★★★ 

CREATURES great and 
small pursue glittering 
dreams of musical 
stardom in Garth 
Jennings and Chris- 
tophe Lourdelet's 
colourful comedy. 

Lovingly composed 
by Illumination 
Entertainment, the 
animation studio responsible for Despicable Me, 
Minions and The Secret Life Of Pets, Sing is a 
feel-good fable pitched squarely at a fame-hungry 
generation that believes the quickest route to 
success is via the audition room of a TV talent 
competition. 

As cautionary tales go, this fails to hit the high 
notes, though the gentle laughs and gooey 
sentiment come together in sweet harmony. 

Koala bear entrepreneur Buster Moon (voiced by 
Matthew McConaughey) inherited a theatre from 
his father, but the business is on the verge of going 
under. In order to woo audiences, Buster organises 
a singing competition with a $1,000 prize. 

Unfortunately, Buster’s elderly iguana assistant 
Ms Crawly (Garth Jennings), accidentally adds two 
more zeroes to the prize on promotional posters, 
prompting housewife Rosita (Reese Witherspoon); 
crooning mouse Mike (Seth MacFarlane); insecure 
elephant Meena (Tori Kelly) and teenage gorilla 
Johnny (Taron Egerton) among others to dream of 
overcoming their weaknesses to triumph on stage. 




HACKSAW RIDGE (15) 

★★★★★ 


DIRECTOR Mel Gibson 
returns, all guns blazing, 
with a riveting wartime 
drama based on the true 
story of Desmond Doss, who 
served with valour during 
the Second World War 
without firing a single bullet. 

He was the first conscien¬ 
tious objector to receive 
America's highest military 
award, the Medal of Honor. 


Gibson directs with verve, 
orchestrating hellish battle 
scenes. 

Desmond (Andrew Gar¬ 
field) is raised with his 
brother Hal (Nathaniel 
Buzolic) in Lynchburg, 
Virginia. 

His father Tom (Hugo 
Weaving) is an emotionally 
scarred WWI veteran and 
mother Bertha (Rachel 
Griffiths) strongly religious. 

After enrolling in the US 
Army Desmond intends to 
follow the lead of his nurse 



girlfriend, Dorothy Schutte 
(Teresa Palmer), and serve 
as a medic but is ushered 
into combat training under 
Sergeant Howell (Vince 
Vaughn) and instantly makes 
enemies of his squad. 


He's arrested for insubor¬ 
dination and he faces a trial 
behind closed doors over¬ 
seen by Captain Glover (Sam 
Worthington) and Captain 
Stelzer (Richard Roxburgh). 

Hacksaw Ridge pulls no 
punches in its depiction of 
the horrors of war. Garfield 
delivers a mesmerizing lead 
performance, as a gentle 
and caring man who yearns 
to serve the country he 
loves, but isn't willing to 
abandon his moral compass 
to do so.

One man's struggle with the 21st cert 


Follow Gary on Twitter @Gary_Bainbridge or email him at gary.bainbridge@trinitymirror.com 


Protesting is my only Tramp card 


I AM not really one for protesting. I 
complain and moan quite bitterly 
after the event, but at the time, I 
keep my mouth shut, like the 
good Brit I am. 

That is not strictly true. Recently I 
complained about a poached egg in a 
restaurant. The waiter actually looked 
surprised by my actions, almost as 
surprised as me. 

But, in fairness, it was so 
undercooked it was more an 
unpleasant hangover cure than a 
breakfast. It looked as if the chef had 
broken the egg straight onto the plate 
without going to the trouble of 
putting it in some simmering water 
first. 

The point is that even I have my 
limit, a red border of tolerance 
beyond which I cannot be pushed 
meekly. An ineptly poached egg is 
where I draw the line - that, and 
Donald Trump as the leader of the 
free world. 

Which is how I found myself, 
entirely out of character, in the 
middle of one of the women's rallies 
around the world protesting the 
election of Donald Trump as 



I would protest about it. 

Moreover, I would protest right up 
to the point at which I had to put my 
hands in the fire, and probably after 
it, although my argument then would 
be along the lines of "Ooyah! Ooyah! 
Hot! Hot!" 

Which takes me back to the rally. I 
am not a rally person. If I wanted to 
stand still in a crowd for an hour 
while somebody gives instructions 
over a megaphone, I would go on the 
London Underground at rush hour. 

I am told that by rally standards it 
was a very well attended event. 
Obviously it was in no way as well 
attended as the rally supporting 
Jeremy Corbyn on the same spot a 
few months before, but that 
is because women's rights 
are not as important. 

But it felt good to be there, 
among people with many of 
whom I would disagree on 
several subjects, but on this 
speaking with one voice. All 
of us were saying that 
Donald Trump is a bad 
choice for President. 

He is a climate-change 


President of the United States of 
America. 

At this juncture, I wish to clarify 
that I am not a woman, but I know a 
number of women and wished to 
support them. 

I also know there are some readers 
who are saying: “Oh, for the love of 
Pete, get a grip, you bumbling idiot. 
So a democratic vote didn't go your 
way. You lost, get over it, you 
Remoaner." 

And I have some sympathy with 
that point, specifically the bit where 
they called me a 
bumbling idiot, which 
is cruel, but not 
something I could 
fight in court. 

But 

arguments are 
not settled with 
a vote, not even 
referendums. 

For example, 
we had a 
referendum in 
1975 on 
whether we 
should stay in 


the Common Market. An over¬ 
whelming majority said yes. However 
it did not stop opponents of being in 
the EEC/EU from banging on about it 
for 40 years until Easy Life Cameron 
decided to give us another 
referendum. 

Opposition to a vote does not end 
after the vote is cast. If we had a vote 
tomorrow on whether we should all 
put our hands in the fire - and I 
would not bet against Team Hands- 
In-Fire winning these days, especially 
if they started talking about the 
"cold-handed 
metropolitan elite" 
with their “privileged 
unscarred fingers" - 


denying, bullying manchild who 
dismisses inconvenient facts as 
coming from the “lying media',' who 
talks about grabbing women by their 
genitalia, who hasn't released his tax 
returns, who, while not necessarily 
racist himself, uses racism as a 
weapon, and who follows Piers 
Morgan on Twitter. And he has his 
finger on the nuclear button. 

And that was just one chant. 

And if I do not protest about this 
man being the leader of the free 
world, then I am saying that I am fine 
with this. And I am not fine with this. 

Normally, I would dismiss rallies as 
useless. I watched hundreds of rallies 
against Thatcher in the 80s. 

But Trump is a man obsessed with 
numbers and personal popularity. 

He may well be the only leader in 
recent history who could be 
dislodged by rallies. 

While I was just one person in a 
crowd, the fact remains I was in a 
crowd. And he can ignore one leaf on 
his driveway, but he can't ignore a 
tonne of leaves. 

Though obviously he can protest 
about it.

Murketts is big new Astra fan 


F INDING the perfect family car 
can be a challenge - how can 
the kids be kept entertained? 

Is the price right? Does it cost 
much to run? Is there space for 
everything? 

Fortunately, local Vauxhall 
retailer, Murketts Vauxhall, has the 
answer, thanks to Vauxhall's latest 
Astra. 

The model has just scooped the 
hotly-contested award for Best 
Family Car for under £18,000 by 
WhatCar? magazine for the second 
year running, thanks to its blend 
of modern technology, excellent 
value for money and superb 
overall ownership experience. 

With the new Astra being 
crowned top for fulfilling its 
family duties, the retailer is keen 
to help families keep moving by 
encouraging them to take a test 
drive to see how the new Astra 
perfectly suits family life. 

Mark Smith, group sales manager 
at Murketts Vauxhall, comments: 
"The Astra is the best family car on 
the market and we are delighted 
it has received recognition from 
What Car?. The model isn't just 
about incredible value-for-money; 
it's one of the best cars in the class 
on merit. It's good to drive, smart 
inside and more practical than 
many of its peers." 

In particular, the retailer with sites 



ON THE ROAD: The new Vauxhall Astra 


in Cambridge and Huntingdon is 
happy for parents to bring along the 
brood so all members of the family 
can experience the road test. 

Mark Smith continues: "Kids 
can be real backseat drivers, and 
if they don't like something, they 
will certainly let you know about 
it! Here at Murketts Vauxhall, we 
think it's a good idea to involve 


them in the trying-before-buying 
process, so that you can ensure 
everyone is happy." 

Honoured for the second 
year running, the new Astra was 
commended by WhatCar? for its 
running costs, value-for-money 
and infotainment. 

The new Astra is also a great 
choice for those who do a daily 


commute or have business 
needs. The retailer is particularly 
recommending the Astra's 110PS 
1.6-litre diesel, where for a modest 
premium over the entry-level 
petrol, customers will be getting 
one of the best performers yet in 
WhatCar ?'s real-world True MPG 
tests.

WINNER: The Kia Sportage 


LB63Dpy 


Kia Sportage star car so far 


KIA'S popular 
Sportage SUV has 
been declared the 
2017 Diesel Car 
Used Car of the Year 
and also won the 
Best Used Crossover 
accolade. 

The third 

generation Sportage, 
which was on 
sale from 2010 to 
2016, was a hugely 
important car for 
the brand, boosting 


sales and changing 
perceptions of 
customers around the 
world. 

In the UK it sold 
nearly 91,000 units 
in total, with its final 
sales year being its 
most successful. 

Beating more 
premium rivals, the 
Sportage was chosen 
due to its frugal 1.7 
turbo diesel engine 
option, engaging 


handling and highly 
competitive residual 
values. 

Other winners in 
this year's awards 
are the DS 3 (small 
car, the Ford Focus 
(medium car), 

Mazda6 (large car), 
Skoda Superb Estate 
(estate car), Flonda 
CR-V (4x4), SEAT Leon 
SC FR (performance 
car), Ford Fiesta 1.0T 
EcoBoost (eco car).

Two-star Euro-NCAP 
award for Mustang 


T HATCHAM Research, 
the independent 
automotive research 
centre, and voice of Euro- 
NCAP in the UK, says that 
the Ford Mustang bucks the 
positive trend towards safer 
cars by not offering similar 
levels of safety in the UK as 
in the United States, and 
advises that there are safer 
choices as a result of the 
two-star Euro-NCAP rating it 
received today. 

"We have not given a two 
star Euro-NCAP rating to 
any of the top 10 car brands 
since 2008," comments 
Matthew Avery, director 
of research at Thatcham 
Research. "This really bucks 
the trend. Car buyers are 
increasingly benefiting from 
improved safety functionality 
and features, and this 
applies equally to cars in 
the sports roadster category 
as to family cars. We have 
concerns about the Ford 
Mustang's crash protection 
of adults and children which 



also makes it unsuitable for 
having rear passengers. On 
top this, it does not have 
basic life-saving technology 
like Autonomous Emergency 
Braking (AEB) that is available 
even on the Ford Fiesta, and 
the recently launched Ford 
Edge. 

"What really concerns 
me," continues Avery, 

"is that Ford has made a 
deliberate choice. The car 
has been designed to score 
well in less wide-ranging US 
consumer safety tests and 
only minor updates have 


been made to meet required 
European (pedestrian) 
safety regulations. This has 
resulted in poor adult and 
child protection scores and 
the high-tech radar collision 
warning system that is 
available to US consumers, 
not being available here 
in the UK. The two star 
Euro-NCAP rating is the 
consequence." 

In the frontal offset test, 
the airbags of both the 
driver and passenger inflated 
insufficiently to properly 
restrain the occupants. 


In the full-width frontal 
test, a lack of rear seatbelt 
pre-tensioners and load- 
limiters meant that the rear 
passenger slid under the 
seatbelt, implying higher risk 
at abdominal injuries in real 
life accidents. In the side 
impact crash, the head of the 
10-year dummy contacted 
the interior trim bottoming 
out the curtain airbag. 

Ford say that a face-lifted 
Mustang will be available 
later this year with Pre- 
Collision Assist and Lane 
Keep Assist as standard.

match against Sporting Khalsa

Robins’ historic Vase 
run is ended by Khalsa 


BRADY Stone was full of pride for his 
Ely players following their 3-0 FA Vase 
defeat at home to Sporting Khalsa. 

An impressive crowd of646 fans turned 
out to support the Robins in their bid to 
reach the quarter-finals, but in the end 
it was the team from the West Midlands 
who had just too much for the home side. 

“The lads were disappointed after 
the game,” said boss Stone. “They were 
gutted that the run had come to an 
end. I told them that they could walk 
with their heads held high and to be 
proud of what they’d achieved. 

“We had 650 people through the gate 
which made the experience amaz¬ 
ing. We can’t thank the local people 
enough for their support. We were just 
disappointed we couldn’t give them 
the performance or result we wanted.” 

The first half was a closely-contested 
affair. Chances were few and far be¬ 
tween, but Stone felt his team should 
have had a penalty when George Dar¬ 
ling was brought down from behind. 

The referee waved play on and in 


Football 

the second half Khalsa took control 
with goals in the 65th, 70th and 80th 
minutes securing the win. 

“We lost to the better team on the 
day,” said Stone. “They had a game 
plan to stop us playing and it worked. 
They deserved to win.” 

The Robins accrued more than £5,000 
in prize money during their FA Vase run, 
in addition to the gate receipts from two 
home games which saw more than 500 
people attend each one. 

“We’ve over-achieved in the Vase,” 
said Stone. “Hopefully the prize money 
and the two big home games will sort the 
club out for a while. 

“It’s a massive boost for a club like Ely. 
Hopefully we’ll be able to get a few things 
sorted out at the ground.” 

Meanwhile, Soham Town Rangers 
lost 3-1 at home to Dereham Town in 
the Ryman League, North Division. 

Cemal Ramadan scored for the 
Greens. 



EYE ON THE BALL:

Under-strength Tigers are beaten by Wan stead 


A HEAVILY depleted Ely team 
lost 36-6 to Wanstead in London 
League 3NE. 

Despite having a strong XV, only 
travelling with two reserves was 
always going to prove difficult for 
the Tigers. 

They took the lead through two 
Joel Scott Paul penalties, however, 
that would be the only points they 
would score all game. 


Rugby union 

The Tigers struggled to deal with 
Wanstead's attacking movement, 
particularly their offload game, 
especially once they started to tire. 

Wanstead ran in six unanswered 
tries as the game went on, three of 
which were converted. 

■ Archie Tarbuck has been 
selected to represent the Eastern 


Counties under-16 squad. 

The King's Ely student 
progressed through a series 
of trials to make the final cut 
and will be in the team to face 
Leicestershire. 

Tarbuck said: "I feel honoured 
to be selected and will do my 
utmost to ensure that Ely Tigers, 
Cambridge Rugby Club and my 
school, King's Ely, who have 


all been instrumental in my 
development, are proud of my 
performance." 

Jim Thompson, head of rugby 
at King's Ely, said: "Archie was a 
standout performer for the Kings 
Ely first XV last term and he had 
impressed with his high work rate 
and strong leadership skills. 

"He fully deserves his call up to 
the Eastern Counties squad." 


Bowls 

Harlow loses 
out in the final 

GREG Harlow failed in his bid for a 
second world indoor bowls singles title 
as he lost out to Paul Foster in the final. 

The City of Ely player, who won 
the title in 2010, made an excellent 
start to the Just World Indoor Bowls 
Championships final at Hopton on Sea. 

He won the first set 10-7, having 
claimed four shots on the third end. 

But he was comprehensively beaten 
11-1 in the second set and then lost 
2-0 in the tie-break as Scotland's Foster 
claimed the title for a fifth time. 

Harlow said: "I played well in the 
first set and was going along nicely. I 
was hoping for more of the same in the 
second but Paul had other ideas. 

"I was delighted to make the final 
but I am very disappointed not to 
come away with the trophy."

ENGLAND CALL-UP: Malak Nasir 

Nasir on a roll with 
England selection 

KING'S Ely student Malak Nasir has 
been selected to represent England in 
roller hockey. 

The 11-year-old will take part in a 
regional tournament held in Lisbon this 
month, where she will face teams from 
all over Portugal. 

Nasir, who lives in Ely, has been 
playing roller hockey for Ely since 
the age of five, winning the club's 
under-11 player of the year award and 
captaining the under-13 squad. 

Richard Whymark, head of King's Ely 
Junior, said: "It is wonderful to see Malak 
enjoying such success in an activity she 
has invested so much energy in recently. 

"We look forward to hearing about 
her performance in Portugal and will 
be cheering her on from Ely." 

The competition, which starts 
tomorrow, is part of the National Roller 
Hockey Association of England's Youth 
Development Programme which aims 
to develop the squad in the build up 
to the prestigious under-17 European 
Championships.
