Manchester Leaves England

I had my first ever surfing lesson this week which went terribly! The conditions were far from ideal with lifeguards announcing a warning to swimmers and surfers over the tannoy system to be careful as it was dangerous. So not the best start. Practicing on the sand was fine and we all did pretty well […]

Despite having already had my flu shot, and promoting germ hygiene at my school and at home, I always chuckle when I, the health teacher, fall victim to these pesky viruses. At my school, seasonal healthy habits are promoted in the health classroom and […]

When we got up at 6 on Tuesday morning we were stunned to see ‘frost’ on the windscreen and all the pavements were translucent white. We hadn’t been subject to anything under 14º for month’s so this was a shock to the system. When we checked out the lady at reception told us they had […]

We all heard the announcement about the Tannoy: "Please make sure all devices are in flight mode." However, if you are flying from Birmingham Airport or any other airport, this can easily be forgotten. If you did not put your phone in "flight mode" before picking it up, what does it actually do? Surely the […]

BRITISH passengers were last night evacuated from a plane at Prague airport after a ‘mid-air bomb threat’. The captain told frightened holidaymakers a “threatening note” had been found on the aircraft and travellers were held for four hours. Cops searched people’s luggage after receiving reports of a bomb scare Cops searched the Jet2 plane and found drawing of a bomb inside a toilet. Passenger Guy Garson boarded the plane in Manchester and said an air hostess was “terrified” when she told everyone to leave the plane “as soon as possible”. He said: “Bomb threat on the plane as soon as we landed in Prague. Air hostess sounding terrified on the tannoy telling everyone to leave everything and exit the plane as quick as possible. “Five hours later we finally got our luggage and can leave the airport.” Passengers had to stay in the airport for five hours Passengers said a “threatening note” was found in the toilet Truck driver Sam Paxton, 35, told The Sun the captain told passengers about the incident shortly after landing at 6pm. He said: “I overheard the air hostess say she had noticed it in the toilets. There was a note and it was something to do with a bomb being on board. “We were taken off the flight and had to leave all our coats and bags there to be searched. “I know at one point the police were checking CCTV from the plane, but I didn’t see anyone being arrested.” Fellow passenger Beth Parkinson, 26, said a toilet cubicle at the front of the Jet2 plane was shut for around 30 minutes before the plane landed. She told the Manchester Evening News: “As soon as we landed the captain said someone had left a threatening note in a toilet and we were not to move and had to leave everything on the plane. Cops and firefighters searched the Jet2 plane when it landed in Prague “We don’t know what the threat was. And we haven’t been told anything. “At the the minute we’re just waiting to collect our bags. They’ve taken all the luggage off the plane and the police have interviewed us one by one while we queue.” Prague Airport confirmed local police “checked the airport because of a potential bomb threat” and added that “all cabin baggage” needed to be checked. In a tweet, officials from the busy airport said: “@PolicieCZ checked the aircraft because of potential bomb threat. “At the moment all cabin baggage need to be checked, estimated time is after 10 pm. Please contact handling employees on site for further information. Thank you.” [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN NEWS” posts_category=”2″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] The airport added: “Update: All checks are finished with negative results. “The flight back to Manchester will be operated by backup aircraft around midnight. Departing PAX should contact their handling agents in the gate for additional info.” A Jet2 spokesman said: “Czech Authorities were called to undertake security checks on one of our aircraft in Prague yesterday, due to a security alert. “The aircraft has been cleared to return to service following these checks.

A YOUNG father has died after being hit by a train days after telling friends that his partner was pregnant with twin girls. Billy Townsend, 24, of Hornchurch, Essex, feared he would be late for work when he crossed the tracks at Goodmayes Station on the morning of July 31, an inquest heard. Billy was rushing for work when he was hit by a train on July 31 He died in hospital on August 3 after being struck by a fast-moving train, passing through the station, which he failed to spot, reports Essex Live. The death of the dad-of-one was described as a “tragic misadventure” at the inquest. His family said he was “full of life” and in “high spirits” at the time of his death as his partner Grace was pregnant with twin girls which were due before Christmas. The pair were also saving for a house and looking forward to starting a family together, reports local media. Billy had told his friends and relatives about the pregnancy at a garden party days before the accident. He was already a father to a five-year-old daughter from a previous relationship, the inquest heard. The young dad was an organ donor and he has since saved the lives of five people, including a baby boy, following his death, a Just Giving page set up for his family said. On the morning of July 31, Billy met his old school mate Aiden Taylor at the station as the pair travelled to work together. However, the train they boarded had a fault which resulted in the driver being unable to open the doors. The train which killed the young dad was travelling at around 85mph as it passed through Goodmayes Station Once the passengers managed to leave the train, Billy feared he would be late for work. The inquest heard there was confusion on the platform following mixed messages from the tannoy announcements at the station. After walking over a footbridge to get to another part of the station, Billy and Aiden learned that they were on the wrong platform for their train. Aiden said that at around 6.54am, he suddenly turned around and noticed that Billy was not beside him anymore. In a statement, he said: “I looked back to see Billy was now on the tracks. I heard the sound of the train horn coming from the left.” As train moved towards his childhood friend, Aiden said he looked away. He added: “I looked back and saw him. I tried to get to him but there was too many people.” The driver of the train, which was travelling at around 85mph, said the family man would not have seen him. He said: “A male decided to cross the lines in front of me. “He was half way up the platform from what I remember. Someone had thrown a bag on platform three. “When he started to cross he wouldn’t have seen me, he was the only one crossing.” The driver, who has been operating trains for 17 years, applied his emergency brake and blasted his horn – however it took a quarter mile for the train to stop completely. [quote]He was in high spirits prior to the accident. He was looking forward to his twin girls being born[/quote] Assistant Coroner, Ian Wade QC, said: “The train collided with him, he was not in obvious pain. The impact would have shocked his system. “The pain was not imminent. He was helpless, he couldn’t do anything. “That’s why a crowd of anxious and distressed onlookers, they couldn’t get to him where he was on the platform – it was on the other side of a high fence. “Someone managed to vault over that high fence to his aid.” Emergency workers arrived at the station in minutes and rushed Billy to Royal London Hospital where he placed in an induced coma following surgery. He died three days after the incident when an anaesthetist, who was prepping him for further surgery, noticed his eyes were no longer moving. [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN NEWS” posts_category=”316″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] In a letter to the coroner, Billy’s mum wrote: “He was in high spirits prior to the accident. He was looking forward to his twin girls being born in December. “Before the accident, the family learned how Grace and Billy were looking forward to the prospects of their life together, they were saving for a deposit on a property. “He enjoyed his job too.” Billy’s boss said: “Billy was a promising prospect. He was punctual, he was polite and he was a real asset to the team.” Billy’s friends have set up a Just Giving page to ease the financial burden on his family. To donate – follow this link.
