POLICE are set to pinch the man who goosed Channel 4 News reporter Sue Turton’s backside live on telly.

The brunette was in the middle of a broadcast from a flooded Oxford street when the smirking middle-aged man groped her bum and then sprinted off.

Shocked Sue paused for a few seconds, but then carried on like a true professional.

The incident has now been viewed more than 45,000 times on website YouTube — but Thames Valley Police have failed to see the funny side.

The force say they are taking the incident seriously and will hand out an £80 fixed penalty notice if they catch the man. A spokesman said: “It went out on national TV, so the evidence is difficult to dispute.”

Sue said: “Many people found the incident humorous. I found the matter quite humiliating.

“Male reporters would never be treated to a public goosing.”

Members of her news crew chased after the man but he managed to evade them.

Smirking murderer is led to the gallows at public execution in Iran...

Two more criminals have been publicly hanged in Iran as children looked on and people took pictures.

Unrepentant, the smirking Majid Kavoosifar, 28, was led to the gallows and even manged a small wave to the crowd before his death.

However his cousin Hossein Kavoosifar, 24, was in tears as he and his uncle were executed in front of the main offices of the judiciary in central Tehran.

 

Smirking, Majid Kavoosifar is led towards the execution site...

Flanked by masked hangmen, hoods over the heads of the condemned men were removed before the hanging, which took place in front of a giant portrait of the judge they had killed.

Onlookers in the street and on the roofs of houses chanted and took pictures with mobile phones. Some laughed.

The tearful mother of one of the killers shouted: "God, please give me back my son."

Iranian authorities sentenced the two men to death for the murder of a prominent judge, a police officer and a bystander in a string of robberies and attacks.

 

The condemned man is helped onto the stool...

The judge supervised several courts and specialized in vice cases.

Kavoosifar confessed after a three hour interrogation to murdering the judge as part of a personal vendetta, according to judicial officials quoted by state media.

 

A final wave to the crowd...

The stool is pushed away...

The end: Arms handcuffed behind his back Majid Kavoosifar hangs dead in front of the office of the judge he killed...

He and his cousin also admitted killing the police officer and another man, as well as wounding three others, during five separate armed robberies.

Kavoosifar fled to the United Arab Emirates after killing the judge, but was later detained there and returned to Iran by Interpol in May 2006.

A military guard looks on impassively...

 

Yesterday Iran publicly hanged seven men in the second round of collective executions in ten days, state media reported.

"These people were hanged on charges of rape, kidnapping and robbery," the Web site of the state's broadcasting company reported, quoting an unnamed prosecutor.

Five of the men were hanged in one execution in the center of Mashad, a town some 620 miles northwest of Tehran, the capital, state media said.

The report said the two other convicts, both 24, were hanged in a different neighborhood of Mashad, close to where they were accused of having raped a woman in 2005.

Earlier in July authorities hanged 12 criminals convicted on similar charges in Tehran.

Extra patrols have been promised on the A75 after police received reports of plans for a "street race" on the route running from Gretna to Stranraer.

A police spokesman said the West Cumbria Cruise were organising an event to take place on Friday night.

 

He said anyone taking part who was caught driving irresponsibly would be dealt with "severely".

 

He added that the police would "simply not tolerate" the region's roads being used for such an event.

Dumfries and Galloway Police have said vehicles travelling to the event were likely to be stopped and checked and drivers prosecuted for any offences detected.

 

Sgt Scott McLachlan, from the roads policing unit, confirmed the force would do everything possible to deter potential participants.

 

"I would urge anyone who is thinking of taking part in this activity to think again," he said.

 

"The consequences of their actions could easily result in the loss of their licence, their freedom and ultimately their life or someone else's, it's simply not worth the risk.

 

"We will have extra patrols on our roads over the next few days in a bid to deter and disrupt this type of behaviour."

Shot banker may have been victim of city loan sharks...
 

A BANKER shot dead on the doorstep of his family home owed £50,000 to loan sharks, it was revealed yesterday.

Police are understood to believe Alistair Wilson, a bank manager with HBOS in Nairn, borrowed the cash from sources linked to Glasgow's underworld after failing to get a legitimate loan for a business venture.

Detectives believe that loan sharks may have tried to blackmail 30-year-old Mr Nairn into laundering money through his bank.

The news came as Northern Constabulary announced that it was scaling down the hunt for the mystery gunman due to a lack of leads.

The police file into Mr Nairn's murder, in November 2004, will remain open.

FIRST QUESTION: You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?


SECOND QUESTION: If you overtake the last person, then you are...?


THIRD QUESTION: Very tricky maths. Note: This must be done in your head only. Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Take 1000 and add 40. Now add another 1000. Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000. Now add 10. What is the total?


FOURTH QUESTION: Mary's father has five daughters: Nana, Nene, Nini, Nono. What is the name of the fifth daughter?

 

Q1: If you answered that by overtaking the second person you were first, you were absolutely wrong. If you overtake the second person and take his place, you are second.


Q2. Can you please explain how you can overtake the LAST person?


Q3 I'm afraid I answered 5000 to this question: I may have to ban myself from watching the programme. The correct answer is actually 4100. Check with your calculator.


Q4 Nunu? Nana? Nene? Of course not. The fifth daughter's name is Mary.

Man arrested for stealing broadband.
 

The 39-year-old man was seen sitting on a wall outside a home in Chiswick, west London, by two community support officers.

When questioned he admitted using the owner's unsecured wireless internet connection without permission and was arrested on suspicion of stealing a wireless broadband connection.

The man was bailed to October pending further inquiries.

Dishonestly obtaining free internet access is an offence under the Communications Act 2003 and a potential breach of the Computer Misuse Act.

The move is the latest example of police cracking down on a crime that did not exist several years ago when wireless internet access was relatively rare.

In April, a man was cautioned by police after neighbours saw him using a laptop in a car parked outside a house in Redditch, Worcestershire.

In 2005, a man was fined £500 for piggybacking on someone else's wireless broadband connection in London.

Detective Constable Mark Roberts, of the Metropolitan Police computer crime unit, said anyone who illegally uses a broadband link faces arrest.

He said: "This arrest should act as a warning to anyone who thinks it is acceptable to illegally use other people's broadband connections.

"To do so potentially breaches the Computer Misuse Act and the Communications Act, so computer users need to be aware that this is unlawful and police will investigate any violation we become aware of."

The Yanks have been at it for years
 
Stealing your neighbor's Net

The spread of wireless is opening lots of opportunity to log on for free, but experts urge caution.
August 10, 2005: 11:16 AM EDT

By Steve Hargreaves, CNN/Money staff writer

 

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Forty bucks for high-speed Internet access? Not a bad deal. But how does free sound?

To a growing number of Internet piggy-backers, it's the sweet sound of pirating their neighbor's wireless network.

Most new computers are equipped for wireless Internet access, and more and more people are opting for Wi-Fi in their homes. But as the networks become stronger and more prevalent, more of those signals are available outside the home of the subscriber, spilling over into neighbor's apartments, hallways and the street.

Add to this the growing number of cafes and other public "hot spots" that offer Wi-Fi (for wireless fidelity) connections and the ability to buy more powerful antennas that can pick up signals several hundred feet away. The coverage in some places can be pretty near flawless.

One study by Jupiter Research said 14 percent of wireless network owners have accessed their neighbor's connection. Yet anecdotal evidence suggests that more and more people are logging on for free.

"I haven't paid for Internet since I've been in New York City," said one friend of this reporter. "Ditto," chimed in another.

And as the practice of using someone else's connection without paying for it expands, it raises the question: Is there anything wrong with that?

Will this land you in jail?

The legality of stealing your neighbor's connection is murky at best.

"All of this stuff is so new, it's hard to say what the liability issues are," said Robert Hale, a San Francisco-based attorney who recently published an academic paper on the subject.

Hale points out that there is a federal law on the books that ostensibly prohibits using someone's access point with out their permission. But "without permission" is vaguely defined and the law seems more geared towards computer hacking.

It seems pretty clear that if you hack your neighbor's password then it could be reasonably argued you didn't have authorization.

But securing many older wireless systems with a password is difficult and even newer ones can be a challenge if you're running multiple computers or multiple operating systems. And, while it may be a violation of the user agreements with Internet service providers, some community-minded users deliberately leave their connections open for others to borrow.

"It's a gray area," said Paul Stamp, an analyst at the technology consultants Forester Research. "By not restricting access it could be argued that you're implicitly making that available."

"A broad statement concerning the access of unprotected wireless networks as being always legal or illegal simply can't be made," said Jackie Lesch, a spokeswoman for the Department of Justice. "It's just kind of dicey."

On a federal level, according to Lesch, prosecuting decisions are made on a case to case basis, mostly depending on the type of system accessed and what it was accessed for.

On the state level it could be more clear. "It's unlawful access", said John Geraty, an officer with the Internet crimes against children unit of the San Francisco Police Department.

According to Geraty, using your neighbor's wireless is specifically prohibited in the California penal code. "It's not yours and you're taking it," he says.

But Geraty said his department doesn't deal with that type of crime specifically and an officer at the department's fraud desk -- whose jurisdiction it would fall under -- said she couldn't recall anyone ever being arrested for it.

Experts do agree that the likelihood of getting caught and prosecuted for stealing a wireless connection probably depends on how often you do it and how you're using it.

"The damages are really the big issue," said Hale. "Are you just poking around, checking your e-mail, or are you doing it on a regular basis and affecting this person's bandwidth?"

Location also seems to play a part.

"If you're in a Manhattan building with 30 apartments that's one thing," said Julie Ask, research director at the technology consultants Jupiter Research. "But if you're the guy who parks your car in front of a suburban house in the middle of the night and you've got the screen from your laptop glowing, well..." speaking of a man who was arrested earlier this month in Florida for just that.

Exposing yourself

Legal questions aside, reliability is another reason to pay for your own access. If you are a heavy user or need the Internet to work from home, relying on a connection that your neighbor could shut off at any moment is probably not a good idea.

There is also the possibility that someone could have set up the unsecured connection as a trap. Experts say it's possible for the network subscriber to gain at least partial access to your computer, read your e-mails and see the pages you visit if you are using their connection. Any personal information you send online could then be compromised.

So while pirating your neighbor's Wi-Fi it may seem like a good way to siphon a free service, you may end up feeling pretty stupid if you get a summons for sneaking a peek at the latest sports scores or your favorite Web sites are the topic of conversation at the neighborhood Christmas party.

Two female sunbathers prosecuted for flashing their breasts at CCTV camera...

 

Abbi-Louise Maple (left) and Rachel Marchant

Abbi-Louise Maple (left) and Rachel Marchant flashed their breasts at a CCTV camera after it swivelled in their direction...

When Abbi-Louise Maple and Rachel Marchant saw a CCTV camera trained on them as they sat on a beach, they had a mischievous idea.

The 21-year-olds lifted their tops and flashed their bare chests at the camera before collapsing in a fit of giggles.

The young women's friends thought their prank was hilarious.

The CCTV operator, however, didn't see the funny side and called the police.

Minutes later, the two blondes were arrested, questioned and then charged with committing an act outraging public decency - an offence which carries a maximum sentence of six months prison or a £5,000 fine.

The pair, who appeared before magistrates on Wednesday and pleaded not guilty to the charges, will now stand trial before a crown court jury at a cost to the taxpayer of £8,000 a day.

Miss Maple and Miss Marchant were enjoying a day on the beach with friends near their homes in Worthing, West Sussex, on July 16, when they noticed the surveillance camera.

Miss Maple said: "For a laugh we both quickly lifted our tops up to flash the camera.

"There was nobody else around that we could see, the beach was empty, so we didn't think it would be a problem as we had done it before.

"We hope they see sense and drop it. We're just two young girls who were having a bit of fun."

Miss Marchant added: "We did not intend to upset anyone and I don't think it's that offensive because people sunbathe topless all the time.

"Everyone thinks it's ridiculous that we've been taken to court. Most people think what we did was funny.

"That's all it was - just a bit of a laugh.

"It's a waste of time and money. They should be concentrating on drug dealers and rapists, not two girls having a bit of harmless fun."

After entering not guilty pleas at Worthing Magistrates' Court, they both elected to stand trial at Chichester Crown Court and the case was adjourned.

Prosecutor Linda Arnell told the court that the beach was about 100 yards from a family play area and that youths aged around 15 were walking nearby when the women were caught on camera.

Peter Bottomley, Tory MP for West Worthing, has led calls for the case to be dropped.

He said: "This is ridiculous.

"It is a total waste of public money and waste of time for the police, the Crown Prosecution Service and the courts. The sooner they drop the case, the better."

The women's solicitor Chris Chatterton said he was confident the case would be dropped by a crown court judge.

There are no laws specifically prohibiting nudity in public.

Public nudity can be prosecuted under the common law offence of outraging public decency if it causes harassment, alarm or distress.

There is also an offence of indecent exposure that falls under the Sexual Offences Act.

Naturists and topless sunbathers are not usually prosecuted.

Malcolm Boura, research officer for British Naturism: "There's no way this should be classed as outraging public decency.

"I think they are absolutely right to demand a trial.

"It's ludicrous it ever got this far. It's another example of the law making as ass of itself."

The case follows that of a 12-year-old boy who was this week hauled before a court charged with assault after throwing a sausage at his neighbour.

A judge threw out the charge and criticised the police and lawyers for pursuing the case.

In March last year, a 15-year-old boy from Burnley was landed with a criminal record simply for throwing a snowball at a car.

The teenager was prosecuted under a little-used 160-year-old law and fined £100.

And in January 2005, Sarah McCaffrey, 23, was fined £60 by South Tyneside court for eating an apple while driving.

BEWARE OF EMAIL CON BY 'HITMAN'

EMAIL conmen are sending death threats to scare Scots out of £1500.

The sender warns: "I've been paid to terminate you by someone I believe you call a friend. I took pity on you but I need £1500.

"Be fast before he employs another person for the job."

One businessman who got the message from an African address said: "It spooked me. It was so detailed and sinister."
