Starmer to be investigated over beer during lockdown

Reading now: 551

British Labour party leader Keir Starmer is to be investigated by police amid allegations he broke lockdown rules last year following receipt of "significant new information".

Mr Starmer has come under pressure since footage emerged of him drinking a beer with colleagues in April 2021 in Durham during campaigning for the Hartlepool by-election.

He said this week he wanted to focus on the cost-of-living crisis and not Conservative "mudslinging". At the time of the alleged gathering, non-essential retail and outdoor venues including pub gardens were open but social distancing rules, which included a ban on indoor mixing between households, remained in place.

A Durham Constabulary statement this afternoon said: "Earlier this year, Durham Constabulary carried out an assessment as to whether Covid-19 regulations had been breached at a gathering in Durham City on April 30 2021. "At that time, it was concluded that no offence had been established and therefore no further action would be taken. "Following the receipt of significant new information over recent days, Durham Constabulary has reviewed that position and now, following the conclusion of the pre-election period, we can confirm that an investigation into potential breaches of Covid-19 regulations relating to this gathering is now being conducted." Police previously said they did do not believe "an offence has been established in relation to the legislation and guidance in place at that time and will therefore take no further action in relation to this matter".

Camden City schools consider making extra school security permanent
CAMDEN, N.J. - After the mass shooting in the southern Texas elementary school, New Jersey announced schools will have extra police presence. But, in Camden County, will the extra presence be permanent?Students flooded out of Camden High School in the afternoon, waving signs in solidarity and sorrow for the children and teachers massacred in Texas."Are you concerned about your safety?" FOX 29’s Jeff Cole asked."So, yes, because now it’s easier to get a gun anywhere, same as the 18-year-old in Texas," 9th grade student Damian Irizarry replied.RELATED HEADLINES:Some 400 students attend Camden High and there are many doors in the building, students say.That fear, largely brought on by the slaughter in Texas, is why officials gathered on the steps of the high school."Our young people and their families deserve to know and to be assured that their students are safe each and every day," Camden City Schools Superintendent Katrina McCombs stated.For the rest of the school year, Camden Police say they’re teaming up with the Camden County sheriffs to strengthen security outside more than a dozen school buildings in the city."We’re going to have two or three officers at every school patrolling and walking beats, as well," Chief of Police Gabriel Rodriguez said.It’s a heavy lift in a city struggling with grinding poverty, but the chief says he’ll have at least one cop outside all schools when students and staff are there."Could your officers stop an 18-year-old with an AK-15?" Cole asked."I’m sure they can.
