Security Officer – ME by Melia London Hotel
Workers at Halewood1 Shopping Centre have spoken of their shock after a security guard was attacked 2with a crowbar during an armed robbery. At about 7.30am the guard was walking into Tesco 3Express on Leathers Lane to deliver cash to the store. He was then attacked by a man with a crowbar, who smashed the hooked metal bar into the guard s knee before taking the cash box and escaping with another man.

They left the scene in a white van while police and paramedics crews rushed to the incident and took the guard to hospital where he is now receiving treatment. The offenders are later believed to have abandoned the van, which has since been recovered, and driven away in a black Ford car. About 20 minutes after the vicious attack detectives received a report of men with a cash box on the Crescent, Huyton4 .
The same box that was stolen from Tesco was then recovered and is now being forensically tested.

However the offenders left with a quantity of cash before police had arrived. Detective Inspector Cath Haggerty said: This is not a victimless crime and for this guard to be subjected to this ordeal while he was just carrying out his job is unacceptable.
We are carrying out a number of enquiries in the area including the examination of CCTV and forensic enquiries. Police stood guard today outside the Tesco Express while a forensic officer took photos of a cash-in-transit van.

A worker in the Marie Curie charity shop, which directly faces the Tesco store, said she was shocked to see police here when she arrived to open up this morning. She told the ECHO: We heard that someone had carried out an armed robbery there this morning.
I was surprised because the area is not normally like that. The Tesco Express was shut for about an hour after the incident.
Inspector Haggerty added: We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who saw the white van in the area shortly before the incident and in the area of Oxford Drive, Halewood shortly after, or anyone who saw a black Ford car in the area of The Crescent, Huyton.
We d be keen to hear from anyone who witnessed the incident itself or who saw the offenders acting suspiciously to get in contact on 0151 777 6064 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 . Any information no matter how small will be treated with the utmost confidence and could assist with our investigation. A Tesco spokesman said: We are doing all we can to support our colleagues and are helping the police with their investigation.
‘Complete and utter failure’ of White House security allows intruder to ‘rattle President’s back door’
The intruder1 who got into the White House2 last week managed to peer through a window and rattle a handle at the South Portico entrance known as the President s back door. House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz called the incident “a complete and utter total failure” of the complex, high-tech security system. The US Secret Service put out a statement confirming the scale of the security breach which happened while Donald Trump3 was in residence, after an unnamed source leaked information to CNN.
The intruder, named as 26-year-old Californian resident Jonathan T Tran, was in the building for nearly 17 minutes before he was arrested and was seen hanging around outside hours before. Mr Tran carried a back pack with mace and a letter for the President as he scaled three fences up to eight feet high to gain access. Despite activating alarms, he was able to give secret service officers the slip at one security point by hiding behind a pillar of the East Wing entrance.
He was reportedly seen in the Pennsylvania Avenue area as early as 6pm, almost six hours before he was arrested. Mr Chaffetz, who was briefed by Homeland Security, confirmed the intruder managed to “rattle the door handle”, but he did not gain entrance and was eventually arrested at 11.38pm last Friday. He said security staff were left angry and frustrated that they had struggled to locate the man after he set off multiple security sensors.
That’s why we spend billions of dollars on personnel and dogs and technologies and fences and undercover people and video surveillance, Mr Chaffetz said.
And yet the person is able to get up close to the White House and spend 17 minutes before he’s apprehended . That’s unbelievable.
He said his committee learned of additional allegations that weren’t in the original affidavit given to the court, including triggered alarms that were ignored and that the suspect may have moved around on the White House grounds undetected for a considerable amount of time . Mr Chaffetz said the suspect also may have attempted entry into the building .
If true, these allegations raise questions about whether the agency’s security protocols are adequate.”
The White House has a complex web of security in its different zones, with the system mostly relying on infrared and microwave technology to trigger alarms but these can be subject to malfunction and false activation. More than 50 interviews have so far been conducted as part of the ongoing investigation which has included scrutiny of video footage and radio transmissions.
The Secret Service statement said immediate steps had been taken to tighten up security, including additional posts, technology enhancements and response protocols.
The men and women of the Secret Service are extremely disappointed and angry in how the events of March 10 transpired, the statement said. When approached by a Secret Service officer on the south grounds and asked whether he had a pass authorising him to be in the restricted area, Mr Tran replied, No, I am a friend of the President . I have an appointment, according to a Washington DC police report. Asked how he got there, he said he jumped the fence.
After the incident, the Secret Service insisted the President was never in danger . Mr Trump said the intruder was a troubled person and praised the service, saying it had done a fantastic job in apprehending the individual. Mr Tran was charged with entering or remaining in restricted grounds while using or carrying a dangerous weapon, and faces a maximum of 10 years in prison, according to Bill Miller, a spokesman for the US Attorney’s office.
No hazardous materials were found in the intruder’s backpack and a search of the north and south grounds complex found nothing of concern according to reports. Standard practice in dealing with White House intruders is for security to hand them over to the local police department, as happened in this case. This was the first known security incident since Mr Trump took office, although there have been a number of incidents of people gaining access to the White House grounds over the past few years.
In 2014, 42-year-old Omar Gonzales, from Texas, made it through the north portico doors with a three-and-a-half-inch folding knife in his pocket before he was apprehended, according to the Secret Service . The Obama family was not at the White House at the time. Four sitting presidents have been assassinated, the last being John F Kennedy in 1963, and there have been more than 20 known attempts to kill sitting and former presidents.
