Lady Sara Bathurst, the High Sheriff of Gloucestershire, has publicly rewarded a council car park attendant and a security guard for being so ‘helpful and welcoming’ to her when she makes official visits to Gloucester. She has presented Richard Whalley and Richard Dando with her High Sheriff’s Awards for Service to the Community – giving them both framed certificates and tankards. Both had made her year as High Sheriff easier and more pleasant, she said at a ceremony hosted by the Recorder of Gloucester Crown Court, Judge Jamie Tabor QC this week.

He is one of the council’s best known employees, outdoors all day as the public face of the authority while he mans the Shire Hall car parks in all weathers.

CCTV Controller – Compass Group
Sources say that the crooks used a suspected stolen HGV lorry in the audacious heist – which took place in full view of security cameras at the Lode Lane plant. The gang unloaded the 40-tonne truck in Coventry – and police have launched an urgent investigation.
Jaguar Land Rover2 has posted a reward to catch the crooks who stole engines initially understood to be worth around 3 million. One source said: How they got the lorry in and out so quickly is quite some story.
We heard the lorry came in at 10.30pm on Tuesday through gates at D1 then drove to the Lagoons depot.
We were told a trailer was attached and was full of new engines . That lorry was in and out of the plant in six minutes.
Later that night the same lorry came back and did it all over again . It attached another wagon and then it drove out past the security guards and that wagon was not seen again all night .
But we have heard that the driver had the yellow documents he needed so he could show the security guards on the way out, without having to be searched.
He could already of had them on him when he entered the plant, or perhaps he got them when in there.
JLR site in Lode Lane Solihull
The engines that are gone are dealt with by Land Rover employees, they are usually stored in a building . The ones that have ben taken were already in trailers . Either they were due to go somewhere or were due to be moved somewhere on site.”
The source added: If that is true, then the wagons must have been full . About 40 engines can fit in a wagon . The heist had been kept under wraps . We believe that only senior security staff and management have known about it, they are shocked at how it has happened . The company pulled in all the managers to a meeting to find out what had gone wrong.
“The ordinary workers probably knew nothing about it.
The site is clearly not as secure as it should be.
Insiders say the stolen lorry arrived at the Lode Lane depot at 10.30pm on Tuesday and entered through the security-manned D1 gate. The HGV then drove to the Lagoons depot and hooked up to a trailer containing the car engines, before driving out . The crime took just six minutes, say sources. A source said: It is a massive thing for the company . They have never lost this quantity of stock of this value before and they have their own security people as well as paying a security company, Mitie, to watch over site as well.
We don t think they have ever had anything this big or expensive taken .
We heard something massive had happened and it was not the little stuff, but the big stuff that had gone.
West Midlands Police is due to issue a statement shortly.
