Quotes

Deputy assistant commissioner Helen Ball, senior national coordinator for Counter Terrorism Policing, said: "We want to ensure that people, particularly women, who are concerned about their loved ones are given enough information about what they can do to prevent this from happening. We want to increase their confidence in the police and partners to encourage them to come forward so that we can intervene and help. This is not about criminalising people. It is about preventing tragedies."
Peter Blake head of integrated transport said: "The council is satisfied that there are adequate signage along the Hanbury Road advising drivers of the legal speed limit they are to keep to. We will continue to monitor the situation and work closely with our partners at West Mercia Police."
...However, Spelman said: "I think the Nordic law is the right direction, but we need cross-party support for it. It's very important men come out and say what they think as well because it's very emotive."
"They are fair game. It is not like I'm using my drone to see if people have nice televisions. I am just after drugs to steal and sell, if you break the law then you enter me and my drone's world" the man said, according to an article on The Independent
