The complainant had been in a relationship with Stephen Studholme, 46, when the incident happened on June 19, the Workington Magistrates’ Court heard.

She had arrived at her home in Wigton at 8.30pm after being at work and a short time later the accused arrived.

Prosecuting Pamela Fee said he made a comment that ‘all women are shit’ and ‘cheaters’.

The woman said she thought that was a bit harsh and Studholme said he was being “brutally honest”. He then stood up and headed for the back door.

The woman had asked him if he wanted a night in Glasgow or a girlfriend and he had replied “Glasgow”.

Ms Fee said Studholme came up to her face shouting: ‘I’m going to smash your head in’ and called her a ‘psycho’.

He shouted “I’m going to smash your car” and kicked his car’s rear view mirror, causing it to smash, the court heard.

She had then placed herself in front of him and he had turned the motorbike. The woman said she had to jump out of the way.

The accused was questioned and admitted the offences. He said she used a garden hose to spray it and ripped the outside mirror off her car. He said he shouted, “Get off, you psycho.”

Studholme, of Yeowartville, Workington, pleaded guilty to common assault and criminal damage to property under £5,000 as part of an agreed plea with the prosecution.

On this basis, the defendant accepted:

  • There was an argument about him wanting to hang out with his friends.
  • He was sprayed with a garden hose while on the bike.
  • The victim tried to get him off the bike.
  • He spun the motorcycle and used threats against it, but not violence.

Studholme did not accept that he drove the vehicle towards her.

John Cooper, defending, said: “He accepts the screams, the damage, he accepts all that. It’s in a slightly different order.

“There was an argument about his departure. There were problems on both sides. He decided to leave.

“She makes some comments about keeping her property. She stands in front of the motorcycle when he tries to leave.

“It’s all the same actions, just in a different order.

“He pleads guilty. A restraining order is not necessary. He went back and bought a replacement exterior mirror.

Magistrates imposed a 12-month community order with a 15-day requirement of rehabilitative activities and 40 hours of unpaid work.

He was ordered to pay £85 in costs and a victim fine surcharge of £114.

A restraining order was imposed which prohibits him from contacting the victim or going to a designated address.

Injured police biker and lorries crash into the M25 as climate campaigners take to the gates for day three Wed, 09 Nov 2022 14:17:30 +0000

A motorcycle policeman was injured in an accident involving two lorries on the M25 as Just Stop Oil protesters scaled gantries above the road for a third day.

Essex Police say an officer was beaten after dealing with a protester on the highway between Junctions 26 and 27 on Wednesday morning.

A rolling roadblock was set up and there was an accident between two trucks and a police motorbike. Two protesters were arrested.

Our Traffic Constables are specialist and dedicated officers who come to work to serve the public and keep you safe on our roads,” said Chief Superintendent Simon Anslow.

“They do it tirelessly, day after day. Unfortunately, this morning one of these fantastic officers was injured while performing this job.

“My thoughts are with them and their family.”

A witness told MailOnline that a woman started climbing a concrete pole and a police officer on a motorbike tried to stop her, then collided with a lorry, which crashed into another lorry .

“They arrested the woman before she could get on the gate,” the witness said.

He added: “Someone is going to die soon.”

Several junctions were closed for hours as protesters were removed from gates, and there was disruption at Dartford Crossing.

The Metropolitan Police suspected that a person – who was arrested – had locked themselves on a gate between Junctions 24 and 25.

“The locks add more complexity for our moving teams and the overall process becomes longer. We had to call on specialized equipment for this move, including a JCB.

Several demonstrators were arrested for public nuisance.

Just Stop Oil said around 10 supporters climbed onto gantries, forcing police to halt traffic at 6.30am.

This is part of the group’s campaign calling on the government to end all new oil and gas licenses and authorisations.

Isabel Rock, 41, an artist from south London said: “The government is responsible for criminal inaction in the face of the climate crisis. They should be in jail, not me. It is my moral duty to cause disruption to force the government to act.

Sam Holland, 20, said: ‘I’m getting screwed. I’m twenty years old. What will my future look like at forty? Looks like there’s no food on the shelves. Looks like people are fighting in the streets.

On Tuesday, 16 protesters were arrested after they scaled gantries on the M25 and disrupted traffic at nine locations. Members of the media have also reported being arrested and taken into custody in Hertfordshire.

Since the start of October, the Met has used more than 11,000 officer teams for Just Stop Oil police protests.

“These are officers who would otherwise deal with issues important to local communities, such as knife crime, protection and burglary response,” Assistant Commissioner Matt Twist said.

“We are determined to bring to justice anyone who conspires to cause significant and unreasonable disruption to London and the motorway network and we will work closely with the Crown Prosecution Service and the courts to ensure this happens.”

Twenty-two people have already been charged in connection with the M25 protests.

Asked about the Just Stop Oil protests on the M25, the Prime Minister’s official spokesperson said: “We are introducing new powers so that the police can go further in tackling this constant disruption that we are seeing.

“It is causing massive misery for the public, as we have seen today, even putting lives at risk and preventing emergency services from doing their job.

“So the public rightly wants the police to have the power to act and that’s what we’re delivering.”

Street racing would take place every night in Nueva Condomina and La Fuensanta, Murcia

Police surveillance has been reinforced in the neighborhoods of the city of Murcia to combat illegal street motorcycle racing, especially in the neighborhoods of Nueva Condomina and La Fuensanta.

Locals say rallies and races are held every night on the access road to the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Fuensanta, Algezares, posing a “serious and dangerous” problem.

A concerned woman wrote on social media: “They are driving at high speed on a section limited to 30 km/h, endangering the safety of neighbors and their own, and preventing people from resting.”

The problem is not new, illegal racing has apparently been going on for years, and the aftermath of complaints, particularly over Halloween weekend, has compelled the local police to act by “increasing their vigilance to put an end to this type of gatherings of motorbikes and cars,” according to Murcia City Hall sources.

From Saturday evening to Sunday morning, the gathering and noise was so unbearable that residents filmed dozens of runners in the Juan de Borbó area and shared them.

“It’s unbearable, they circulate at brutal speed, make a huge noise and even rear up,” says a neighbor.

Another pointed out that the runners were “in disguise, spinning and jumping traffic lights, risking their lives and those of other drivers and pedestrians”.

The dangerous races are not isolated from the town centre: residents of La Alberca and Algezares say gatherings of motorbikes are “a constant problem” and warn “local police should be more vigilant”, given that “the traffic and noise are intolerable”.

In a statement, the city council replied: “The local police have set up prevention services in Nueva Condomina and Fuensanta, where the presence of motorcycle groups has been detected, through social networks and warnings from neighbors.”

She added that “thanks to prevention” these concentrations “have been dissolved”, despite locals saying otherwise.

The Special Public Security Group (GESC) of the local police of Murcia is in charge of controlling these gatherings and reminded that “it is not a crime to meet with other bikers or to ride together”.

However, riders can be fined if, for example, they leave their vehicle parked in an area where it is prohibited or if they are caught committing a traffic safety offence.

Cambria speaker Adam Youens praised her for her resilience and adaptation when the Shanghai WorldSkills competition was canceled due to Covid-19.

He said: “Abi’s journey has been a long one, starting with domestic competition in 2019 when she won bronze and was chosen to be part of Squad UK.”

Move It asks Robin to push the motorcycle taxi bill Tue, 01 Nov 2022 12:45:26 +0000

SEN. Robin Padilla has been asked to advocate for the timely passage of legislation legalizing the motorbike taxi business, said to provide jobs for hundreds of thousands of motorbike owners, as well as ‘more versatile public transport’ .

Francis Juan, president of the Move It Coalition, said motorcycle taxis – still illegal under existing law but operating temporarily for data collection to guide Congress on the details of its bill – would have was able to save the day for thousands of commuters stranded by Tropical Storm Paeng a few days ago.

The traffic jam caused by Paeng brought jeepneys and buses to a standstill, leaving commuters helpless in the rain for hours without a ride, he recalled, while noting that “if motorcycle taxis had been fully mobilized and legalized , they would have been more numerous to serve the commuters.

At the same time, the leader of Move It assured that “motorcycle taxis can transport passengers in traffic and, in normal situations, to destinations insufficiently served by public transport”, citing for example Bonifacio Global City of EDSA and internal roads.

He stressed the need for “a mix of transport modes to give commuters a choice”.

The transportation advocate recalled that a technical working group (TWG) has already submitted its report on motorcycle taxi activity to Congress.

In the 18th Congress, the House of Representatives, recognizing the urgent need to create jobs and provide public services to commuters, passed the enabling bill in one day even though no counterpart bill was tabled in the Senate.

“Three years of studying the technical working group with zero production from our politicians,” Juan lamented. “Every day late only benefits us – Angkas, Joyride and Move It – while the public, the commuters, pay the price. This must stop. We therefore call on Senator Padilla to take the cudgel for the poor and needy,” said the leader of Move It.

Besides, he pointed out that thousands of motorbike taxi owners have to earn money to pay their monthly depreciation and feed their families. Due to the legal loophole, some 200,000 illegal motorcycle taxis, or habal habal, risk being apprehended every day but continue to ply the roads of Metro Manila to survive.

“Protect the drivers and commuters, not the businessmen who own the three motorcycle taxi companies under the TWG,” he said.

Moreover, he stressed, the government should stop capping the number of operators and the number of motorcycle taxis because monopolies and duopolies are prohibited by the Constitution.

“Promote competition so that the service improves. With competition, prices could even drop. Senator Padilla, please lead the way and protect the public,” Juan said.
