The 19 year old man guilty of the murder of St Bedes pupil Breck Bednar has been sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum term of 25 years. The court heard how Daynes had lured 14 year old Breck to his home in Essex under the pretence of including the boy in a multi-million pound computer software deal having groomed him online for several months. Despite overwhelming DNA evidence and the original call made by Daynes, he tried to claim that two Middle Eastern men had broken into the flat, forced them to perform a sexual act and then stabbed Breck in the neck.

An inquest into the death of a motor cyclist from Redhill has found that there were three contributing factors that led to the fatal accident in which he died.
He had rounded a blind corner at speed and was suddenly confronted by stationary traffic caused by temporary lights. He hit the car in front of him and then rebounded off a car travelling in the opposite direction. The inquest found that police had failed to identify a risk to life in regard to the positioning of the traffic lights following an accident at the same spot the day before Mr Friend died.
The jury also concluded that the positioning of the lights and warning signs for the roadworks being carried out by Sutton and East Surrey Water as well as the speed Mr Friend was traveling were contributing factors to his death.

Two inquests held in Woking in the last week have ruled against foul play in relation to two bodies discovered near East Surrey hospital in unrelated incidents last year. The first inquest was into the death of 42 year old care worker Adrian Sirbu in March last year.
Mr Sirbu had visited the hospital suffering from psychiatric problems but was discharged following tests which attributed his mental state to his reliance on alcohol. The inquest ruled that Mr Sirbu stabbed himself in the heart shortly after leaving the hospital.

An early morning operation targeting drug dealers in the area resulted in 22 arrests of people suspected of supplying drugs.
The co-ordinated strikes started at 6am on Wednesday morning and involved more than officers raiding properties in Redhill, Earlswood, Horley and North London. The police belive that, whilst the targets were low-level drug dealers, the effects of the arrests will have a significant impact on drug dealing in the area.
A school in Reigate that has provided education to girls for 83 years has announced this week that it could close in the Summer. The board of governors at Dunottar School in High Trees Road have announced that the dwindling number of pupils at the school have caused financial problems that could result in the school's closure.

Coplan Estates have been awarded the project which will create a six screen cinema, four restaurants and four retail units, plus 90 new homes, in the Marketfield Way car park and High Street in Redhill. Torrential rain and gale force winds struck overnight on 23rd December, resulting in flooding throughout the county.
Many homes were left without electricity and Christmas preparations were either put on hold or cancelled altogether as friends and neighbours rallied to help each other. Severe flooding resulted in gridlock on many roads as motorists failed to make it through deep water. But despite a brief respite on Christmas day, there are still flood warnings in place as the bad weather continued at the end of December and into the new year. Surrey has become the first county in the country to receive a 24 hour emergency air ambulance service.
Following numerous fundraising events, Kent, Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance have purchased a MD helicopter capable of flying at night, which will be based at Redhill Aerodrome.
The new service will mean the difference between life and death for thousands of patients who require emergency treatment and speedy transport to hospital at night. Passengers wishing to travel on the London to Brighton line over the Christmas period will face considerable inconvenience and diversions. Southern Rail have announced that there will be no trains travelling from Gatwick to London Victoria between Boxing Day and January 1st due to platform work at the airport and maintenance on the lines.

The Panorama programme, aired on Monday this week, revealed that the years of abuse at the school were covered up by the authorities, despite a string of complaints against several teachers. The abuse took place from the s right through to the s but no action was taken until further complaints were made in the s. Former Assistant House Master Colin York was jailed in for abusing two boys in the s and he was prosecuted again earlier this year for additional crimes after more victims came forward.
Allen Meredith, a house master at the school in the early s who was prosecuted for raping 11 year old boys at another school in Hereford, told the documentary that numerous allegations were made against him whilst he was at Royal Alexandra and Albert, but none were reported to police. East Surrey Hospital has been named one of the safest hospitals in the country in a new report. The Care Quality Commission compiled the report on hospital trusts across the country and graded each trust in bands between 1 and 6.
Surrey and Sussex Healthcare Trust was one of 37 trusts given the highest rating meaning that patients receive safe, effective, high quality care. However, he has received huge support from local people, MPs and even David Cameron himself in his fight for the right to stand.

Lime Tree Primary School have submitted plans to Surrey County Council to build a pupil, two storey school with a small nursery attached, but as the location is on Green Belt land, it will face scrutiny from both the council and the government before any decision is made. The school is currently operating out of temporary premises in Reigate having taken on children in Reception year in September. Police have identified the body found in woods in Earlswood last week as 52 year old Carol Holmes from Redhill.
Ms Holmes was last seen in Hatchlands Road, Redhill on 13th September, 17 days before her body was discovered in the woods. Her death is still being treated as unexplained after inconclusive post-mortem results, although police still claim that there is nothing obviously suspicious. The massive overhaul of Redhill train station and the surrounding area has now been approved, giving the green light to the most important project in Redhill since The Belfry shopping centre was built 22 years ago.
Reigate and Banstead Borough Council approved the plans by Solum Regeneration at their planning committee meeting last week and work is set to start early next year. A large area of Earlswood Common was cordoned off by police on Monday, after a human body was discovered in a wooded area. A post-mortem on Tuesday proved inconclusive regarding the cause of death and police suspect that the body may have been in the woods for some time.

First Great Western who operate trains from Redhill, Reigate, and Dorking have asked the Department of Transport for an extension to the deadline after failing to extend its current franchise.
However, if a new deal is not struck, the RMT believe that services will be thrown into disarray with cancellations and severe disruption to commuters. The Union believes that the government should give the franchise operation to the publicly owned Directly Operated Railways. Residents in the borough have expressed concern over the number of travellers setting up camp on recreation grounds and public land in recent weeks.
Following the drawn out eviction process of the travellers who occupied the Hooley Recreation Ground for three weeks, smaller groups of travellers have been appearing on public land in Meadvale, Whitebushes and Horley. The laws regarding police intervention favour the travellers, making immediate eviction difficult after the travellers have accessed a site if no criminal damage has been committed.
However, both the Meadvale and Whitebushes sites were cleared after swift intervention from the council and the Horley site was cleared after private action from landowner Barratt Homes. A teenage girl was sexually assaulted as she walked along Tunnel Road in Reigate in the early hours of Friday morning.

Social media site Twitter was inundated with comments from unhappy residents including Eastenders star Shane Ritchie. One of the men who attempted to rob a Reigate jewellers has been jailed for five and a half years at Guildford Crown Court.
The men were dressed as postmen and forced their way into the shop before striking manager David Price with a metal bar. After failing to gain access to the safe, the two men fled empty handed but King was traced through forensic evidence left at the scene and in a van they hired for the raid. A 7 year old boy was hit by a 32 tonne lorry as he tried to cross a busy road on his scooter yesterday.
The lorry hit the boy and he was thrown up the road by the impact. Two men were attacked in two separate incidents in Earlswood Road on Friday. The first attack was on an 18 year old man cycling along a footpath just after midnight when he was pushed of his bike and punched in the head.

They realised that their friend was probably at home and immediately rushed to the top floor flat where they discovered the kitchen engulfed in flames due to a chip pan fire.
The quick thinking duo managed to put the fire out using a jumper soaked in water. The Redhill osteopath who sexually assaulted five patients has had his jail sentence increased by the Court of Appeal. However, victims and their relatives thought that the sentence was far too lenient for his crimes, which stretched over a 12 year period, and appealed for a longer sentence.
Judges at the Court of Appeal agreed and increased his sentence to four years. Her crimes were revealed when an external auditor reviewed the accounts in March Smith, who is currently pregnant, was jailed for nine months at Guildford Crown Court and will give birth in prison if she serves her full term.
A 63 year old man has died after trying to protect his dog from another dog. Jim Summers from Holland Close in Redhill was walking his two dogs in fields in Woodhatch on 28th March when another dog became aggressive against one of Mr Summers' dogs. As he tried to pull the two dogs apart, Mr Summers suffered a heart attack. Paramedics were called by fellow dog walkers and Mr Summers was rushed to St George's hospital in Tooting.
However, Mr Summers didn't recover and died on Sunday. After massive local opposition, rejected planning applications and building delays, work has finally begun on the controversial new police custody suite in Salfords.
The 24 cell custody suite is being built on an industrial estate in Salfords and should be finished by September in advance of an October launch date.
When the new suite is fully functional, it will take over from the cells at Reigate Police station which have been described as inadequate. Adrian Sirbu of no fixed abode was spotted by a passer by at around 5.
When ambulance crews arrived 10 minutes later, Mr Sirbu was pronounced dead at the scene and police cordoned off the park, including a path leading to homes in the Royal Earlswood Park estate. Police are investigating the circumstances leading up to Mr Sirbu's death, but are currently not looking for any suspects. Surrey County Council have sworn to protect the local Green Belt from enforced development plans by the Government. The Government announced last year that it wanted local councils to identify parts of the Green Belt that could be sacrificed to meet development needs.
However, at a full council meeting in Kingston on Tuesday, councillors declared that borough and district councils should be allowed to make their own decisions regarding the Green Belt and should not be directed from central Government.
A 49 year old man climbed onto the roof of his house on Tuesday to protest against his eviction. Lawrence Nicholls has lived in the three bedroom house in Apley Road, Reigate since he was born and has watched both of his parents die at the home. He recently cared for his mother at the house prior to her death last June. Following her death, Mr Nicholls contacted Raven Housing Trust to inform them of his new situation and was told that they would be evicting him. When officers arrived on Tuesday to evict him, Mr Nicholls barricaded the door and climbed to the roof.
After several hours, the officers left and Mr Nicholls climbed down, but they returned on Wednesday morning and successfully evicted him, leaving him homeless.
A 27 year old man from Redhill was killed on his way to work on Thursday when his motorbike collided with two cars at a set of roadworks on the A at Sidlow. Father of two Lee Friend was riding his Honda motorbike on his way to work at Reigate Motor Company in Sidlow when tragedy struck at a set of roadworks dangerously placed on a blind corner.
Regular users of the road had complained about the safety of the roadworks after several other minor accidents had occurred the previous day and following the accident on Thursday, the temporary lights were moved so that they were visible from a greater distance.
Mr Friend was pronounced dead at the scene. A private club in the heart of Reigate has been refused a licence to re-open after council officials decided that the club would continue to be used for illegal gambling. The Reigate Town Club was shut down in November after a police raid discovered illegal high-stake poker games being played at the premises in Church Street. An application was made to re-open the private members club under the new name The Jubilee Club but the licensing committee at the council claimed that the club would continue to attract illegal gambling and therefore denied the licence.
An area of Redhill town centre had to be evacuated on Thursday after a fire tore through a troubled pub in the town centre. The fire at the Dog and Duck started at approximately 3. It quickly spread to the second floor and flames were seen billowing through the roof and windows. Firefighters evacuated workers from nearby offices and shops whilst they battled the blaze. A 28 year old NHS worker from Earlswood has been jailed for rape, but received a lighter sentence than reccommended due to the 'exceptional' circumstances of the crime.
Guildford Crown Court heard that on a night in November , Simon Bragg had been out drinking in Reigate with the unnamed 24 year old woman. The pair went back to his flat in Canada Court at East Surrey Hospital at the end of the evening where they had consensual sex.
However, Bragg insisted on having sex again later on against the woman's wishes. The woman did not recall the incident immediately, but after Bragg apologised via text message, she began having flashbacks. He was jailed for 3 years despite the normal minimum being 4 years.
Linkfield Lane in Redhill was closed on Wednesday morning after a young girl was hit by a car. Police, paramedics and the Surrey Air Ambulance rushed to the scene at around 9am. The girl had been hit by a silver VW Golf driven by a man in his 80's near the junction with Donyngs Recreation Centre. The air ambulance landed in the road, and after being treated by a doctor form the nearby surgery and paramedics, the girl was taken to St George's Hospital in Tooting.
The business was put up for sale last year by Aqueducts Capital UK and the sale to Sumitomo Corporation was announced this week. It is understood that there will be no changes to the operation of the company and no jobs will be lost at the Redhill headquarters as a result of the sale.
A pub that has served the residents of Reigate for years will call last orders for the final time today. The Nutley Hall in Nutley Lane, Reigate has been on the market for nearly three years, but due to poor custom it has not attracted a buyer wishing to run it as a pub. Last year, Hall and Woodhouse the brewer that owns the pub applied for planning permission to turn the pub into housing and despite fierce opposition from local residents, consent was given by Reigate and Banstead Borough Council.
A local couple have bought the building and intend to commence building work imminently. The helicopter that crashed into a crane in Vauxhall, killing two people and leaving thirteen others injured, had taken off that morning from Redhill Aerodrome.
The Agusta helicopter took off from Redhill at 7. Due to bad weather, the helicopter was diverted to Battersea heliport and at around 8am, tragedy struck as the helicopter crashed into a crane on the side of a building in Vauxhall.
Mr Barnes died in the crash as did a pedestrian on the ground below. Drivers who park in pay and display car parks without purchasing a ticket have always run the risk of receiving a fine. But now, even those who have purchased a ticket could receive a fine if their ticket is not displayed correctly and easily visible. Reigate and Banstead Borough Council have announced that drivers who have received a fine because they have not displayed their ticket correctly will no longer be excused from paying the fine on appeal.
Parking officers are equipped with cameras and will obtain photographic proof if a ticket is not displayed correctly. East Surrey Hospital have had to take the drastic steps of banning visitors in a bid to contain the Norovirus bug. Sick patients are being told to stay in their wards and have been advised that they will not be permitted visitors until the contamination risk is reduced. The hospital-wide ban on visitors comes just weeks after the hospital was forced to close a third of it's wards after an outbreak of the vomitting and diarrhoea bug.
Patients with minor injuries are also being advised to attend walk-in injury units at Crawley and Caterham rather than attending the Accident and Emergency at East Surrey.
It is hoped that the visitor ban will be lifted before Christmas Day. Following the public outrage at the announcement that Horley Fire Station will close next year, the fire service plan to open a brand new single-engine fire station in Salfords, providing a fast response service to both Horley and Redhill. The crew from Horley Fire Station are being relocated to Horsham in April, but a fire engine from Reigate will be based at the existing Horley station until the Salfords facility is opened.
The move is part of a wider strategy to provide faster response times by having more single-engine stations, each providing back-up support for the closest neighbours.
Reigate would also become a single-engine station rather than it's current two engines. A Redhill-based osteopath has been found guilty of sexually assaulting five patients over a 10 year peiod. He will be sentenced on 11th January. Surrey County Council have approved a proposal to ban vehicles from Reigate High Street and make it a pedestrianised shopping precinct.
The council are now investigating alternative routes to bypass the town centre but have not ruled out allowing buses to continue driving along the High Street. Reigate town centre struggles to accommodate for the large amount of traffic travelling through, especially during rush hour, but many retailers believe that diverting traffic away from the High Street will have a negative effect on business. Reigate and Banstead Borough Council have released their latest blueprint for development, which identifies several areas of Green Belt land around Reigate and Redhill that could be developed for housing.
Around homes could be built in each of the areas if the plans are approved. George Hollands from Reigate, one of the six men accused of the sickening attack on another holidaymaker in Crete, has been cleared of the charges at a court in Crete.
All four of the men intend to appeal against their conviction, despite not having to serve any actual jail time. Ben Herdman from Worth was also cleared of the attack. Redhill town centre will soon have a new community centre after Reigate and Banstead Borough Council approved plans for the project. The new development, which will be built at the former site of the Kandootoo shop in London Road, will incorporate a cafe, a religious meeting area, a business centre, youth facilities and a homeless shelter.
The application for the project was made by members of the Redhill and Reigate Community Church. After a three year delay surrounded by legal red tape and extradition orders, six local men have been brought to trial for an assault on another British man in Crete in Rob Hughes, a promising football player, was attacked whilst on holiday in Malia leaving him in a coma and with permanent brain damage. The trial is expected to last for several weeks.
Schools, businesses, care homes and hospitals have all been struck by the sudden return of the vomitting bug, Norovirus. Attendance at local schools has dropped dramatically in the last week as children have fallen victim to the bug whilst many care homes for the elderly have had to confine the guests to their rooms to prevent the bug from spreading. Nine wards at East Surrey Hospital have been affected causing the hospital to take emergency infection control actions including closing down selected areas.
Doctor's are appealing for people who may have contracted the virus NOT to visit their GP's surgery but to call for advice.
Reigate is set to get a new Thai restaurant after the Giggling Squid signed a 20 year lease for the former Puccinos cafe in Reigate High Street. Puccinos closed more than three years ago but there has been little interest in the unit until now. The Giggling Squid already run five restaurants in the South East and believe that Reigate is the perfect setting for their newest opening.
They hope that the Reigate restaurant will be open in Spring A Reigate pub was ordered to close by police on Saturday night and will now have it's licence reviewed. The Admiral Inn in Nutley Lane has been a cause of concern for police after numerous complaints from local residents.
They were called to the pub at around 1am on Sunday morning after threats of violence were heard from groups of drunk people wandering in and out of the pub. The police ordered the pub to close immediately for 24 hours and then attended Redhill Magistrates court on Monday morning to enforce the closure order.
Shane Ritchie, star of Eastenders, and Tony Tobin, celebrity chef and owner of The Dining Room in Reigate, are planning to bring a synthetic ice rink to Priory Park with festive attractions including food and drink stalls for everyone to enjoy.
