Quotes

Detective Constable Jan Jones said: "We have managed to get an image of a man and I would urge people to take a good look at it. Do you recognise this man? If you do or so if you believe you witnessed the incident itself, we are keen to speak to you."
She tweeted a message of thanks to all her loyal fans, saying: "Thank you for all the support over the last 6 and a half years.  I'll always have a piece of Tina with me - it's inevitable, I have her earrings!"
"Nor are we clear about whether young people do go from smoking e-cigs to normal cigarettes – the research hasn’t yet been done."
Helen Wadsworth, manager at neighbouring Betfred, said: "A customer came in to tell us and we evacuated. There was lots of smoke coming out of the right side of the pub."
