  2. We went to a carboot sale on Sunday and was expecting there to be strict distancing in place. Some stalls had buyers shoulder to shoulder with little or no PPE. Lets hope the virus is on its way out otherwise it will spread at these places.
  3. ‘Lean On Me,’ ‘Lovely Day’ singer Bill Withers dies at 81
  4. There is a percentage of these so called panic buyers who are selling items on at a large profit. Private sellers as well as business sellers on ebay for instance are selling toilet rolls hand cleaner etc. Also some corner shops owners have been bulk buying from supermarkets and selling at inflated prices. For instance check some of the brands in some small shops they are actually supermarkets own brand.
  5. A friend of mine moved on there its called Slingsby place and yes there is a lot of litter on there already. Some people who reside there are constantly leaving their bins out on the road which are blowing over and causing the litter problem.
  6. If anyone remembers the Peace gardens thing this might be similar. https://www.thestar.co.uk/news/men-arrested-over-stalking-claims-lodged-by-five-victims-in-sheffield-suburb-1-9194788
  7. Hmn!!!!!... lots of people with lots of ideas how the Ripper got caught...let me tell you if the REAL truth ever came out you would be sick!!!! I DO KNOW THE TRUE STORY of how he was caught, starting with the REAL reason the cops went to check the car in the first place ( sorry why the SERGEANT) - went to check the car in the first place !!! a sergeant I knew very well from my days at West Bar when he was a PC- he is now deceased so I will never speak ill of the dead......suffice to say Sutcliffe was captured and that let all the 'top brass' at West Yorks off the hook... Remember I knew them all from my days on the Reg Crime Sqd......but to return to my original theme.. this was an isolated case the Ripper and I still say every-day crime was 'managed' to a degree... your mother could go to bingo or a church meeting in the evening- she can't now...!!! Im guessing Booper really wanted to say that the copper who caught Sutcliffe was perving through the car window:gag:. It wasnt until this copper checked the registration of Sutcliffes car that it was found to be on false plates. The rest is history.
  8. This weeks episode 5 was great, the bit in the phone box was funny. This priest keeps coming back to see his mum in Sheffield:thumbsup:
  9. Anyone had this sort of treatment done in Sheffield? Do you know cost, how effective the treatment was? Many thanks.
  10. Anyone remember Trevor Toyne? He was a plumber and lived in the Abbeydale Chippinghouse road area. I seem to remember he drove a reliant robin in the 60/70s.
  11. True cuttsie, all the people we should be able to trust seem to be the biggest lawbreakers. I often wonder how many innocent people were made to admit crimes simply because they were beaten into submission. That was of course before the days of tape recorded interviews.
  12. This case was just the tip of the iceberg. Suspects were very often beaten and verballed to try and obtain an admission. This still went on until the police and criminal evidence act (PACE) was introduced in the mid 1980s.
  13. Thanks for all your kind replies. The surgery at Darnall is an absolute disgrace, thats not just the receptionist either. Its got to the point where some people would sooner just stay ill and not go there at all.
