    • Can you ask your GP to get a second opinion on the NHS?  (I ought to know because I'm a retired NHS manager, but worked in mental health where x-rays didn't really feature very much(!).)   Your GP may be reluctant for various reasons but you've got nothing to lose by asking.  Might be difficult if there's only one consultant in that specialty locally.   If that is a non-starter, you could ask your GP for a private referral if any of the relevant specialists run private clinics.  Your son'll get seen quicker and an initial private consultation shouldn't cost more than about a couple of hundred quid.  Then take it from there.   (Emphasise to your GP what your real concerns are and why you have them - even if it's just "I looked it up on the internet and it looks like this which can lead to serious complications.  What do you think?  I'm really worried...")
    • dont think they are even allowed to offer settlement by instalments, they are not creditors.   read the letter carefully and understand what it doesn't actually say....like the word WILL anywhere.   they,  a DCA, can't recommend anything and their client most certainly wouldn't have disclosed anything to a powerless DCA about what their solicitors might or might not have said to them. and ofcourse a solicitor is in no position whatsoever to suggest to their client they get back to the DCA and tell the DCA to tell you their client will accept instalments!   the letter is a load of ole BS that is concocted by the dca without any input or knowledge of their client nor their clients solicitor...   dx      
    • The paediatric orthopaedic consultant at the fracture clinic told us today that he believes it is just a sprain behind the knee. I'm concerned my GP will say something along the lines of, 'you have seen a consultant, he says it will heal in 2 to 3 weeks, you don't know more than him!', or something like that. It's just that I believe I can clearly see a fracture. And as there was no fall or hard knock, only a very tightly streched knee bending at an angle behind, with a load. I figured that the temdon must have pulled some bone up. And thats the injury I found online. I totally take on board what you are saying. You are correct. I guess I'll see what my GP says tomorrow, hopefully she allows me to email the images, if she doesent have access to them already. Thanks again

    • Make a appointment ASAP to see child GP and let them sort it out and not Dr Google.   You may need to see a paediatric orthopaedic consultant for advice, a GP can refer the child if necessary.

    • Hi,  
      I was in Sainsbury’s today and did scan and shop.
      I arrived in after a busy day at work and immediately got distracted by the clothes.
      I put a few things in my trolley and then did a shop.
      I paid and was about to get into my car when the security guard stopped me and asked me to come back in.
      I did and they took me upstairs.
      I was mortified and said I forgot to scan the clothes and a conditioner, 5 items.
      I know its unacceptable but I was distracted and Initially hadn’t really planned to use scan and shop.
      No excuse.
      I offered to pay for the goods but the manager said it was too late.
      He looked at the CCTV and because I didn’t try to scan the items he was phoning the police.
      The cost of the items was about £40.
      I was crying at this point and told them I was a nurse, just coming from work and I could get struck off.
      They rang the police anyway and they came and issued me with a community resolution notice, which goes off my record in a year.
      I feel terrible. I have to declare this to my employer and NMC.
      They kept me in a room on my own with 4 staff and have banned me from all stores.
      The police said if I didn’t do the community order I would go to court and they would refer me to the PPS.
      I’m so stressed,
      can u appeal this or should I just accept it?
      Thanks for reading

TWO clampers from Essex company LBS Enforcement have been arrested on suspicion of fraud.


The men, a 40-year-old from Leigh and a 54-year-old from Southend, were arrested in relation to clamping activity in Clacton.


Police say the arrests were made in relation to a series of clamping incidents which occured in the town in May this year.


Fraud covers a range of offences and is defined as obtaining money or a financial advantage by deception.


Motorists from across the county have complained to Essex Police about the behaviour of LBS, based in Wickford and Southend, but only recently have police begun investigating the complaints.


Police previously stated that because clamping and towing from private land was regarded as a civil matter, it was not something they could get involved in.


In Clacton, there have been many complaints from people who have been clamped by LBS while parking on private land in Agate Road, near Danes Cleaners.


One incident concerned Vanessa Altin, who said she was clamped despite being a genuine customer of Danes.


Mrs Altin won a county court judgment against LBS in April but, despite using bailiffs and pursuing one of the company directors to his home address, was unable to get her £311 back.


Another incident involved single mother Tanya Martin, who complained in April that LBS threatened to tow away her car while she and her two children were inside.


A police spokeswoman said: “Two men have been arrested on suspicion of fraud in relation to clamping in Clacton, a 40-year-old man from Leigh and a 54-year-old man from Southend.


“They have been released on police bail, pending further enquiries, until October 24.


“The arrests are in connection with a number of clamping incidents that occurred in May in Clacton.”


The spokeswoman was not able to give any more details about the circumstances of the arrest. LBS, which is registered to addresses in London Road, Leigh, and Westray Walk, Wickford, and has a pound in Camper Road, Southend, manages sites across Essex and East London.


Its directors are Mark Stone, 43, from Southend, and Matthew Boosey, 37, from Wickford.


Clacton MP Douglas Carswell said: “I wouldn’t want to comment on this particular case because I don’t know all the details, but I would say the police have absolute full support from everybody in the community that the laws are fulfilled, and any clampers behaving unlawfully are brought to book.”

This was the oufit featured on Watchdog a couple of weeks ago, and who recently clamped a couple of vehicles belonging to a water company.

Surely if any PPS has a judgement against them at the Caounty Court there must be a case for criminal prosecution.


Why should they get away with their blackmail, fraud, deception and extortion?

I witnessed the clamping of the 2 water vans as its near my house. The local paper has numerous stories on LBS http://www.echo-news.co.uk/, at one point it had about 5 stories running at once !

If clamping was carried out by striking yorkshire miner, would the Police still call it a civil matter.

Its about time the Clown Hall Parking Department were visited by our Suburu Impretza driving bully boys in blue and meat out some justice for joe bloggs in his Morris minor.
