Taxi of mum and dad
Two parents have carried out DIY detective work to dig up evidence they believe could get their son’s murder conviction overturned. Andrew Feather, 28, is serving 20 years after being found guilty under the joint enterprise law of acting as a getaway driver in the killing of Barry Selby. But after months of work his mum Michelle and dad, also Andrew, have found possible discrepancies in CCTV times that were used to jail their boy. Their lawyers have now taken the evidence to the Criminal Cases Review Commission, which will consider if it should be referred to the Court of Appeal. Cleaner Michelle, 54, said: “We’ve always believed Andrew is not guilty. “I remember when he got found guilty and he was crying, and he looked at the judge and said, ‘You know I’m innocent – you know I’ve not done this’. “It’s on our mind 24/7, from the moment we get up to the moment we go to bed, but we always want to look for more … [Read more...] about Mum and dad turn DIY detectives in bid to clear son convicted of gang murder
Telling the story of Laurel and Hardy’s latter years was a labour of love and having Martin Scorsese’s advice a dream come true, Peterhead director Jon S. Baird tells Alistair Harkness. It’s the week before Christmas and Blue Toon filmmaker Jon S. Baird is sitting in a hotel lobby in London, apologising in advance for any trad jazz that might be filtering down the phone line. “Just so you know, they’re piping it through the walls; it’s not my taste,” he says, his Aberdeenshire accent (he grew up in Peterhead) cutting through the background din.As it happens, he’s been spending a lot of time in hotels over the last couple of months. His new film, the late-years Laurel & Hardy biopic Stan & Ollie, is currently part of this season’s awards circuit, with a Golden Globe nomination already in the bag for John C Reilly’s transformative turn as Oliver Hardy. That means Baird has also been on the campaign trail, zipping … [Read more...] about A labour of love and dream come true for Peterhead director Jon

A MUM and daughter have been living in a hospital room for 15 months while waiting for a council home. Ruth Kidane, 21, was admitted in Barnet, North London, last year and her mother Mimi Tebeje, 50, moved in with her. They were forced into their “hotel stay” because a council has failed to find them a flat back home in Grimsby. A hundred patients have missed out on a bed due to their 15-month hospital stay. The shambles over rehoming Ruth Kidane, 21, and Mimi Tebeje, 50, has also cost taxpayers more than £150,000. Ruth, who is disabled and uses a motorised scooter, was admitted to Barnet Hospital, North London, in July last year for unknown reasons. Mum Mimi moved into a bed next to her daughter’s in a small room on a general ward. Within a few weeks doctors declared Ruth fit for discharge. But the pair are still there because another tenant was moved into their council-owned flat in Grimsby. North East Lincolnshire Council has yet to find them a new home. … [Read more...] about Mum and daughter forced to live in HOSPITAL for 15 months while waiting for a council home at cost of £150k to taxpayers
