An obsessed man tried to frame his ex-girlfriend's new partner by planting a home-made bomb in his car. Riyaz Khan's "inconceivable stupidity" caused a major security alert with the army's bomb disposal team becoming involved, Leicester Crown Court was told. There was a huge response from the emergency services at Huntington Road, Northfields, Leicester, following the alert. The surrounding areas were cordoned off and up to 40 homes were evacuated on the morning of Monday June 4. It came about because Khan was obsessed with reconciling with his ex-girlfriend and ended up launching a "campaign of stalking" the young woman as well as her father and new partner, who she has since married. Khan, 27, wanted to frame her partner by planting a home-made incendiary device, made from fireworks, in the partner's car - along with a USB stick containing illegal child pornography and a bomb-making manual.

Things to say to get your man back
What do Coventry City's opponents think of them? Throughout the season we will bring you the pre or post match comments of rival managers in League One and the cups to find out what they have to say about the Sky Blues and their games against them. Here's what the opposition bosses have said about Coventry so far this term: LEE BOWYER, CHARLTON ATHLETIC Bowyer said his side's failure to see games out is 'crazy' after Sky Blues came from behind to win at the Valley We just switched off. Maybe they think it is too easy because we were in full control of that second half. We attacked when we wanted. We were solid underneath the ball. We contained everything that they tried to throw at us and then all of a sudden they go bang, bang and take the three points. The first half we have to take our chances again. In the second half we had a few chances. We can’t keep doing that. The football at times is great to watch, they are playing so well. This last week, obviously Luton, Scunny … [Read more...] about ‘It sounds crazy’ What Lee Bowyer had to say after defeat to Sky Blues
August 14, 2018 12:29 PM The school on the small Greek village of Kerasochori looks like the set of a disaster movie. Everything is still there: the black board, the math books, tables and chairs, the sports equipment, the map of Greece on the wall. Even the class registers are still in the corner. A layer of dust covers everything. About 20 boys and girls once went to school here, but 12 years ago it was closed down. That's where it began. There were no longer enough families in Kerasochori to keep it running. Konstantina Kalli, 34, has unlocked the door and stands helplessly in the ruins of the past. "Anyone who leaves doesn't come back," she says. "The village is shrinking." Kalli is Kerasochori's hope. She has a three-year-old daughter and is six months pregnant, with a girl. The birth will likely be difficult. There is no medical clinic nearby, and she has had to drive to Athens for every checkup, a journey of five hours by car along many winding mountain roads. … [Read more...] about The End of the Bailout: Greece Is Back on the Grid, But Recovery Remains Elusive
Our 18th man columnists discuss Wigan’s form, Tomkins’ exit and the England squad... What are your hopes and fears for Saturday’s game at Hull FC?Robert Kenyon: I’m afraid of getting another good hiding and I think we will. Our discipline is disgraceful and I think it’s because of all the off field events over the past few weeks. The first try against Wakefield could have been prevented but Gildart and Sam gave up, Jones-Bishop couldn’t believe his luck and nearly fumbled the ball because he thought he’d have been smashed into the advertising boards. The rumours about Bateman going to Canberra ain’t going away and need addressing, I don’t care if the club are waiting for the right moment, there won’t be one, might as well chuck it in with the rest of the bad news. As one of my favourite sayings goes ‘When you’ve got to eat a poop sandwich, it’s best not to chew’. Despite all the doom and gloom we are … [Read more...] about The 18th man column: ‘I want to see some fight and pride in the shirt’
