Fire Doors Can Save Lives !

The damage caused by the fire has made the structure of the building potentially unsafe and so it has been extremely difficult for fire and police officers to get inside the building and carry out a full investigation of the premises. The cause of the fire is unknown at this stage and a full investigation will be carried out. A limited search has been undertaken and we can confirm that a body has been located in the building. Although a formal identification has not been made it is believed that this may be the body of 81-year-old Brian Sandells. Brian is known to live at Kard Bar and has not been seen since yesterday and his family have been unable to contact him. Northumbria Police are keeping the family updated and will continue to support them at this difficult time. Northumbria Police Superintendent Bruce Storey said: This is a very difficult and complex investigation due to the nature and severity of the damage caused to the building and detectives are working alongside specialist fire investigation officers and structural engineers to carry out enquiries as to how and why the fire started. We are extremely saddened to say that we believe that Brian Sandells, who was a resident in one of the flats above the shop, was inside his home at the time the fire happened and may have passed away during the fire. Our thoughts are with his family and friends and we working to try confirm this for his family.

Manchester United Transfer News: Wesley Sneijder Eyed Amid Jose Mourinho Rumours | Bleacher Report

His record in England & CL is top class. Wed be foolish to ignore #MUFC Rob B. (@_Rob_B) December 19, 2015 Whether or not itd be worth bringing Sneijder along is another matter entirely. The Dutch midfielder enjoyed the finest spell of his career under Mourinho at Inter, and as is evident in the clips above, he still possesses the guile to have a positive impact on games at the highest level. As we can see here, courtesy of OptaCan, Sneijder has been in brilliant form as of late for the Istanbul giants: 7 - Wesley @Sneijder101010 was involved in seven goals in his last nine league games for @Galatasaray (two scored, five assisted). Prolific. OptaCan (@OptaCan) December 20, 2015 Even so, the midfielder is past his best, and while the quality of the Turkish Super Lig is constantly on the up, it doesnt compare to the furious nature of English football. Sneijder remains sharp cerebrally and can still pick a pass, but the industry that made him so good under Mourinho would be tough to rekindle in a second spell together. Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno/Getty Images Sneijder could still do a job for United, but he's past his very best. Indeed, if United were to appoint Mourinho, history has shown us the Portuguese will target players who are at the peak of their powers.

When the clocks go forward this weekend make sure you only lose an hour and not your life - by checking your smoke alarms at the same time. Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service (GFRS) is encouraging residents to ensure their families are safe and all the alarms in the house are working as British Summer Time starts this Sunday (30th March). A total of 211 people across the country died in fires in the home last year, and more than 70 per cent of these weren't alerted to the fire by a smoke alarm, so it's vital to test them regularly. A working smoke alarm can buy families the valuable time they need to get out, stay out and call 999. Chief Fire Officer Stewart Edgar said: "Anyone can spot when a clock stops ticking, but it's not so easy to be sure that your smoke alarm is still in working order." "And, as more than half of the people who died in home fires last year were 65 years old or above, this is also a perfect opportunity to test alarms for older relatives who might find it hard to reach their alarms but are at greater risk." "By pushing the test button on every smoke alarm, you could save the lives of your nearest and dearest." Cllr Will Windsor-Clive, cabinet member for fire, planning and infrastructure, said: "There's no excuse not to have your smoke alarm tested regularly, and this is the perfect opportunity for people to make sure their family is safe." Smoke alarms are inexpensive - less than 10 from DIY stores and many supermarkets. GFRS Community Safety Advisers identify fire risks within the homes of the most vulnerable people in our communities. They can fit smoke alarms free of charge, advise on hazards and how best to remove them and put householders in touch with other agencies that can provide systems such as telecare (equipment that allows people to call for help and assistance). If you know of a vulnerable person who doesn't have a working smoke alarm, GFRS has a supply of alarms that can be supplied and fitted for free just by ringing 0800 180 41 40. Ends How do I look after my smoke alarm? Once a week - Check the alarm by pressing the button Once a year - Change your battery (unless it's a 10-year alarm) Twice a year - Vacuum and wipe the smoke alarm casing to ensure dust isn't blocking the sensor chamber (For mains wired alarms, switch off first) Every 10 years - fit a replacement smoke alarm. They don't last forever Always make sure that smoke alarms meet the BS5446 Part 1, have a KITEMARK and that they are fitted in accordance with the instructions provided.
