Man sentenced to 9 years for Bognor rape
A Bognor man has gone to prison for nine years after being convicted of raping a young woman he had approached in the street.
29-year old Lee Matthews, unemployed, of Richmond Avenue, Bognor Regis was sentenced at Chichester Crown Court today, having been convicted after a seven-day trial the previous month. He will also be a registered sex offender for life and will also be on Licence for a further six years after his release.
The Court heard how the lone woman in her mid-twenties was walking along Canada Grove in Bognor during the early hours of Saturday 5 July last year. Matthews, who was not known to her, approached her and offered to walk her home. He then told her there was a party at a house by the tennis courts near Norfolk Square and invited her along. As they walked down a service road to the tennis courts, he pulled her to ground and raped her.
Detective Constable David Midgley said "This case is particularly nasty in that Matthews obtained the victim's trust by offering to walk her home. He then took advantage of this trust by luring her to a service road under the pretence there was a party there."

Artist's impression may help identify man found dead in Lewes stream
The UK Missing Persons Bureau and Sussex Police are appealing to the public for information about an unidentified body found in East Sussex 15 years ago this week. An artist's impression of the man's face and of tattoos on his forearms has been published on both websites. It is believed that the dead man was aged between 50 and 65. He was discovered on 4 January 2000, face down in a shallow stream, Winterbourne Stream, behind Haredean Hamsey allotments in Lewes.
He was 5'7", of thin build, with a pale complexion, short thinning red greying hair, a moustache, and

blue eyes. A tattoo on his left forearm shows a cross and underneath it the letters MBM or MAM. The right forearm has a tattoo of a naked woman and underneath it an orange and white symbol. With the body were found a blue baseball cap, a small amount of cash, a plastic comb, a disposable razor, two keys and a set of blue rosary type beads with a white cross. He wore a long sleeved maroon shirt with blue checks, grey trousers and black socks. A pair of tan coloured size 43 slip-on shoes were found nearby.
The cause of death was bronchopneumonia.There were no suspicious circumstances and an inquest in 2000 recorded an open verdict.
An artist's impression compiled recently by the UK's National Missing Persons Bureau shows a facial reconstruction of what the victim would have looked like before he died. To view the appeal on their website, including the artists' impression, see Missing Persons
If you have any information that may help identify this man you can contact the UK Missing Persons Bureau via missingpersonsbureau@nca.x.gsi.gov.uk or 0845 000 5481, or by calling 101 quoting serial 184 of 31/12/14 or email sussex.pnn.police.uk
Alternatively, call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
Detective Inspector Jon Gross said; "We have worked with the Bureau to put this case on their website because we know that they have recently started publicising such cases on the site, and because in this case they have also been able to develop a good artist's impression of the man. Even after all these years it would be good to identify him and give any relatives some peace of mind and closure. We do consider publicising unidentified bodies in this way, on the basis of a case by case assessment."

WHEAT BAG WARNING FOLLOWING FIRE
Time: 1.30pm
Location: BUNGALOW, COOTES AVENUE, HORSHAM
Incident: FIRE
Firefighters were called to a bungalow on Cootes Avenue just before 1.30pm this afternoon after a wheat bag left heating in a microwave too long caught alight, filling the property with smoke.
Thankfully, because West Sussex Fire & Rescue Service had previously carried out a Home Fire Safety Check at the property, the occupiers, a couple in their 80s, were protected by a Lifeline System with a specialist 'Firelink' smoke alarm. This meant that an operator at a 24-hr monitoring centre was automatically alerted to the fire and could place the 999 call to the Fire Service.
A fire crew from Horsham were on the scene within 4 minutes and firefighters quickly extinguished the fire, which was contained to the microwave. The female occupier was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation.
Wheat bags, heated in microwave ovens, are often used as an additional source of warmth and therapeutic pain relief, but if not used correctly, they can pose a real danger.
Watch Commander Ian Melville, who was in charge at the incident, said- "Fortunately, on this occasion nobody was seriously hurt, but this incident is a timely reminder of the risk wheat bags carry. All wheat bags should come with manufacturer's instructions and recommended maximum heating times - it's really important that people follow those instructions and don't overheat them."

Imprisoned for importing stun guns
An investigation by detectives from the Sussex Police Serious Organised Crime Unit has resulted in an East Preston man going to prison for five and a half years for illegally importing taser 'stun guns' disguised as torches.
Aaron Davies, 30 of Sea Road, East Preston, was sentenced at Chichester Crown Court having been found guilty following a trial which finished yesterday. He was convicted of importing prohibited

stun guns
weapons, 22 stun guns disguised as torches, into the country with intent to evade a prohibition, and with possession of them.
Stun Guns are prohibited weapons and contrary to Section 5 of the Firearms Act 1968. The devices are not the same as taser devices used by police forces in the UK. They are more powerful and have no legitimate use in this country. Davies was also sentenced to an additional nine months in prison for separate counterfeit goods offences.
The prosecution followed an investigation in which Davies home address and his work place, a business unit at the Rudford Industrial Estate in Ford, were searched by officers in May 2013.
The investigation began in April 2013 when Border Agency staff at Coventry intercepted a Parcelforce parcel originating from China. The customs declaration listed the contents as 'Flashlight 7' but when they opened the package they discovered seven boxes each containing a stun gun device disguised as a torch. The parcel was destined for Davies' work address at Ford, Bulldog Enterprise Ltd, and on 1 May 2013 Sussex detectives searched the address and arrested him. His business dealt with electrical good such as toys, car sales, as well as valeting. He would bulk purchase items and try and sell on for profit.
The search uncovered 13 identical stun guns hidden in the suspended ceiling void. In his car were found two more boxed stun guns hidden in the spare tyre void in the boot.
Davies' work computer was seized and evidence obtained showing that he had been actively tracking parcels en route to him from China, including the parcel that had been intercepted the previous month.

Search for two men tragically swept out to sea
Police supported coastal rescue services through the night after two men were swept out to sea at Brighton.
They responded after a report at 1am from a member of the public that people had gone into the sea during severe weather. It is believed that a group of four friends - all men in their 20s - had gone to the beach near the Palace Pier. Three had entered the water, with two of them tragically swept out to sea.
Initial information leads officers to believe that the second man to have been swept out had gone to

the rescue of the first. These men, aged 23 and 24, are from Brighton. In the group was a 26-year-old man from Brighton and a 23-year-old from London.
Coastguards co-ordinated the search through the night with two all weather lifeboats, a rescue helicopter and two shoreline rescue teams from Shoreham and Newhaven. The weather conditions made the search difficult and they stood down their search of the water at about 4.30am. Police together with the shoreline rescue teams continued to search the shoreline.
DCI Carwyn Hughes said: "This is a tragic incident and we are liaising closely with the men's families. Every effort was made to find and rescue the two men in treacherous sea conditions during the night. Sadly the search is now focused on recovery rather than rescue. This morning Coastguard are recommencing a search to the west of the Palace Pier and this is being supported by Sussex Police specialist search officers and Sussex Search and Rescue volunteers and dog teams on the relevant beach areas. The local Brighton seafront officers have been maintaining searches of the beach throughout the night and will continue to do so. Unfortunately the weather conditions proclude the use of aerial sweeps by the National Police Air Support Service."

RNLI Brighton Lifeboat BRIGHTON LIFEBOAT
Time: 01.03am
Incident: Lifeboats launched in storm conditions
The lifeboat crew from Brighton were tasked by Solent Coastguard today at 01:03 after the emergency services were contacted by worried bystanders, as two persons were reported to enter the water, just west of Brighton Pier.
Brighton RNLI were tasked to make their way to Brighton Pier and commence a search of the area. A request was then made for the all-weather lifeboat at Shoreham RNLI to launch and assist with the tasking.
On leaving Brighton marina the senior helm made the decision to stand-down the boat due the on-scene conditions being too dangerous for the inshore lifeboat to leave the marina. Conditions on-scene were wind direction westerly force 8-9 with waves reaching 3m high.
On the decision to stand-down the inshore lifeboat, Shoreham all weather lifeboat continued to make their way to Brighton Pier. At the time of this statement being made the search was then joined by helicopter 104 and Newhaven all weather lifeboat. Crew members from Brighton lifeboat then went to assist the coastguard units with a shore based search.

RNLI Shoreham Lifeboat SHOREHAM LIFEBOAT
Time: 01.20am
Incident: Shoreham Lifeboat launched to missing men
The all weather Shoreham lifeboat was launched to help search for the two missing men in the water off Brighton beach in severe weather conditions. As well as Shoreham lifeboat, Newhaven and Brighton RNLI lifeboats were launched to join in the search along with the coastguard helicopter, mobile coastguard units from Shoreham and Newhaven and Sussex police officers. However Brighton lifeboat was forced to turn back as the south west 8 to 9 gale force winds and high waves meant it was beyond its operational limits. Shoreham and Newhaven lifeboats searched east and west of the pier but were stood down at about 5am when nothing was found. Shoreham lifeboat coxswain Steve Smith said: "The 3 metre waves and gale force winds made the search in the shoreline difficult. We did all we could but it wasn't the outcome we wanted and our thoughts are with the family and friends of the two missing men."

Men swept out to sea named
The families of the two men swept out to sea in Brighton have agreed to name them as Dan Nicholls, 23, of Florence Road and Freddie Reynolds, 24, of Buckingham Place.
A body, probably of one of the men swept to sea at Brighton, has been discovered on the beach at Saltdean this afternoon. A member of the public found the body at 2.25pm and the body is being recovered from the scene. Formal identification has yet to take place. The two friends had, with three other men, gone to the seafront after a night out with friends when the tragedy happened. Extensive searches took place throughout the night by coastal rescue services, NPAS and the

Dan Nicholls, left, -  Freddie Reynolds
Brighton & Hove seafront officers who searched the shore on their quadbikes. Today Sussex Police specialist search officers have co-ordinated a search of the shoreline with the support of HM Coastguard with 17 members of the Sussex Search and Rescue team searching repeatedly from the West Pier to Saltdean Lido. The National Police Air Support also made a sweep of the shore from Rottingdean and out to sea at midday.
Specially trained officers are supporting the families and in an effort to recover the other body further searches by Sussex Search and Rescue team are planned to continue tomorrow.
Ongoing investigation has so far revealed that a group of seven friends had gone out that night to celebrate one of them emigrating. Initial investigations show that during their night out there had been a dare to stand by the sea, with Dan volunteering. Five of the friends went to the seafront and Dan took up the dare and was at the water's edge when a wave hit him, knocking him off his feet and he was taken out to sea. On seeing this Freddie, with another friend, started to strip and Freddie dived in to rescue Dan but was also swept out. Their shocked friends tried to enter the water but were beaten back by the waves. Tragically they saw Dan and Freddie together before they lost sight of them and called for the help of emergency services. The friends had discussed the dare before seeing the ferocity of the waves. The sea was gale force nine and very dangerous. The dare was only to stand near the sea but this was still too close as is evident in what happened.

Search continues for stolen bulldog
Detectives are re-appealing for help in tracing a stolen rare lilac British Bulldog puppy, following the arrest of five men.
The puppy, thought to be worth £16,000, was stolen from the breeder's home in the Tadworth area on October 17 last year. Officers were told that a man attended the address having expressed an interest in buying the puppy, but after being given it to hold he ran out of the property, allegedly assaulting a relative of the dog breeder on his way.
Investigating officer Detective Constable Eloise Lock said: "I would like to thank the public and

media for their help following the original appeal in October, after which we had numerous enquiries to investigate. I am now calling for the public's help again as we still need to find the puppy and return her to the rightful owner. Given the time elapsed since it was taken it could well have stayed at numerous premises, and may be out of the county of Surrey.

Lorry driver admits causing death of pensioner
A lorry driver has admitted causing the death of a pensioner after taking his eye off the road to get a bar of chocolate.
Ernest Humphrey, 79, of Mackie Avenue, Hassocks, died after the black Vauxhall Zafira he was travelling in was struck by the lorry of Andrew May on the A27 close to the Southwick Tunnel. May, of Truro Avenue, Doncaster, pleaded guilty to causing death by careless driving when he appeared at Chichester Crown Court. He was found not guilty of a separate charge of causing death by dangerous driving.
The 45-year-old was driving the eastbound carriageway of the A27 shortly after 1pm on 25 July 2013 when he looked away from the road to reach for a bar of chocolate. He looked up as his lorry struck the Vauxhall before crossing the central reservation and overturning, blocking the westbound carriageway. The eastbound carriageway also had to be closed while the injured men in the Vauxhall were rescued and the barrier was repaired.
The 49-year-old man driving the Vauxhall, from Hassocks, suffered head, leg and chest injuries and was taken to Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton for treatment. Mr Humphrey, who was a passenger in the car and also from Hassocks, was flown to Southampton General Hospital but died of his injuries on 30 July.

The vehicle will be outside the Co-op shop in Delling Lane, Bosham, on Wednesday, 28 January, from 10am to 2pm and outside the Tesco Extra store in Fishbourne from 3pm to 8pm.
Anyone who attends is asked to bring along photo identification, a passport or the photo driving licence. An officer will fill out some details, check their identification and take a photo of them. Their thumbprint will be taken and a swab will be taken from inside their mouth. More than 800 men have already come forward since the screening sessions began last week.
The screening sessions are taking place at the Millstream Hotel in Bosham Lane, Bosham, until Thursday, 29 January, and then from Monday 2 February to Saturday 7 February and again from Tuesday 10 February to Sunday 15 February. All sessions are from 10am to 8pm.
The process is painless and should take no longer than 10 minutes. Police will only use the samples obtained to check against this particular crime and their DNA profile will not appear on any database. Legal safeguards are in place to ensure they are not used for any other purpose. The samples will be destroyed at the end of the investigation.
On 30 December 2013, 55-year-old mother and grandmother Valerie Graves was found brutally murdered in her bedroom in Smugglers Lane, Bosham. She had been staying at the property while the owners were away over the Christmas period. Just over a year on and a significant investigation is continuing into the murder.
Anyone with information about the murder of Valerie Graves is asked to call 101 and quote Operation Ensign or email sussex.pnn.police.uk
Alternatively, call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

Location: Parish Lane, Pease Pottage
Incident: Anglers find human bones by lake
Police were informed that two bones, which are believed to be human, had been found near a pond in Parish Lane, Pease Pottage.
A member of a local angling club who was fishing found them. The bones have been taken away for analysis. Police search teams have searched the area around the lake and into woodland nearby, but no further bones have been found.
The find is being treated as unexplained rather than suspicious at this time, but police enquiries, which are at an early stage, are continuing.
Anyone with information which might assist the investigation is urged to call police on 101, quoting Operation Carlisle
or email sussex.pnn.police.uk
Alternatively, call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

Bones identified as those of missing Crawley man Jean Leveque
The two bones found by a fishing lake off Parish Lane, Pease Pottage, have now been confirmed as those of Jean Leveque, 42, of Hawth Close, Crawley, who was reported missing by his family in May last year.
The bones, which are an upper left hip bone and a lower left leg bone, have been identified as a result of analysis by a forensic archaeologist and by DNA comparison. Extensive police enquiries had been carried out to try to find Jean, including media appeals to which his sister contributed.
Police have searched the area last weekend after the bones were found but no further remains were found. The death is being treated as unexplained, and there is no evidence to suggest it is suspicious. The facts will be reported to the Coroner.

Further remains in forest believed those of missing Crawley man
A police-led search in Tilgate Forest, Pease Pottage, has found further human remains believed to be those of missing 42-year old Jean Leveque from Crawley.
The further search, carried out on Tuesday, 17 February 2015, found the remains, consisting of a skull, torso, arms and right leg, together with some scraps of clothing, at 2pm at a point deeper in the forest from where the first two bones, both from a left leg, were found last month.
Police were assisted by volunteers from Sussex Search and Rescue and Neighbourhood Watches.
Searches of the area have been continuing on a regular basis since the first two bones were found but no more are now planned as it is evident that the whole body has now been recovered. Although DNA analysis has still to take place to formally confirm the identity, and this may take some days, it is believed that they are from Jean, and his next of kin have been told of the further sad news.
Police were informed on Wednesday, 28 January, that the first two bones had been found near a pond in Parish Lane, Pease Pottage. A member of the public who was fishing found them on Monday, 26 January. The two bones were identified as Jean's as a result of analysis by a forensic archaeologist and by DNA comparison. The area around the lake was searched to see if there were any more bones but none were found at that stage.
The death continues to be treated as unexplained rather than suspicious, and the Coroner has been informed.
Extensive police enquiries had been carried out to try to find Jean, of Hawth Close, Crawley, including media appeals to which his sister contributed, after he was reported missing in May last year.

£73,000 confiscated from convicted West Sussex bank manager
A convicted West Sussex ex-bank manager has been ordered to repay £73,000 after being convicted of stealing from customer accounts.
At Brighton Crown Court, Sarah Gibbs, 33, of Ontario Gardens, Worthing, who had worked for HSBC since 1999 and as a branch manager for several HSBC branches in Sussex from April 2005 to April 2011, was given a Confiscation Order under the Proceeds of Crime Act for £73,120, having stolen from customers' accounts and attempting to cover her tracks by falsifying internal bank records and transferring monies from branch internal accounts.
Irregularities in branch banking records at Goring, Shoreham and Hove were spotted by an HSBC internal audit which was prompted by a query from an HSBC customer in 2011 enquiring about the status of investments allegedly made by Mrs.Gibbs on their behalf. It transpired that the monies had not been invested but had been taken by Mrs. Gibbs and used for her own benefit. Amongst those customers whose accounts were accessed by Gibbs were several elderly people and even her own friends.
Brighton detectives, assisted by expert financial investigators from the Sussex Police Economic Crime Unit, followed up information provided by the HSBC Bank Fraud Investigations Team.

The investigators analysed the transactions on more than 50 bank accounts operated by Gibbs and her husband through which the funds from the theft had been laundered. Monies were mixed with modest legitimate earnings for a variety of activities including contributing to the deposit for a house purchase £23,000, deposits for new cars £15,000, paying deposits for a wedding £3,500, the care and stabling of a pony £35,000, several holidays £7,500, trips to the Rendezvous Casino in Brighton and online gambling £30,000.
Gibbs was charged in August 2012 with false accounting and theft by employee to the value of £275,400.81.
Sarah Gibbs pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 42 months imprisonment in May 2014. The Confiscation Order made on 29 January this year followed a financial investigation as a result of which the Court declared that she had benefited from her criminal conduct by £281,836.03 and that her available assets amounted to £73,120 which were ordered to be confiscated and paid over to the Court within six months, all of which will be paid in compensation to HSBC. She will face a further 12 months imprisonment if she does not pay.
