Police issue warning over legal highs
Emergency services were called to a shop in in Chichester at around 4pm where a man was acting strangely and saying he felt unwell.
He then began damaging the shop, Eddie's Convenience Store in Millfield Close, before running away and climbing a tree in Baxendale Road. Thankfully the man, a 26-year-old, didn't do himself any serious damage, however it is believed he had taken so-called legal highs. He was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage and was later bailed until 7 November while investigations continue.
Another man was also taken to St Richard's Hospital in Chichester suffering the effects from what is thought to be a legal high drug. He has since been released.
Police are warning about legal highs after two men were also taken to hospital in Bognor Regis today. Police were called around 2.15pm to reports of two men taken ill at a property in Stocker Road. The men, both 19, were taken to hospital.
Detective Inspector Dave Grover said: "We believe all of these men may have taken some type of legal high which made them all very unwell. We urge people to take caution as legal highs often have great health risks. Just because a substance is legal to possess, it doesn't mean it's safe. In addition, other damaging health issues have been experienced including paranoid states, psychosis, hallucinations, comas and seizures."
Police advise that there is a range of people to talk to and there are services available that offer support. They are there to listen to concerns, whether they be from the enquirer or someone they know. These include the NHS website www.nhs.uk and www.talktofrank.com

Valerie Graves Murder breakthrough
Detectives investigating the murder of Valerie Graves in Bosham believe they have made a breakthrough in the case.
Forensic scientists have obtained a limited DNA profile for the suspect, which means detectives can start requesting voluntary DNA samples to eliminate males from the investigation who live and work in the Bosham area, either permanently or as migrant workers. Officers will also be speaking to visitors in the area to eliminate them from the investigation. Detective Superintendent Nick May, of the Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team said- "This is a significant breakthrough for the investigation. Although this profile is not suitable for a search on the National DNA Database it does indicate the suspect is male. Anyone who provides us with a DNA sample could now be eliminated from the investigation. The profiling will involve taking a swab from the mouth and fingerprints from each individual.
We are stressing that if anyone has any concerns or suspect they may know something, they can talk to our officers or Crimestoppers anonymously. We can rule out people whose names are suggested as being responsible for the murder by comparing their DNA with the sample. It is important for the public to understand that we 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 we do not use them for any other purpose".
Valerie was found dead with serious head and facial injuries at a house in Smugglers Lane, Bosham, on Monday December 30, 2013. The 55-year-old had been staying at the property while the owners were away over the Christmas period.
A significant investigation into the murder is continuing 10 months after Valerie was found dead.
A reward of up to £20,000 is now being offered jointly by Sussex Police and Crimestoppers for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Valerie's killer.
Anyone with information can contact police on 101 quoting Operation Ensign
or email sussex.pnn.police.uk
Alternatively, call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.

Time: 11pm
Location: Southgate Avenue, Crawley
Incident: Two men assaulted in Crawley
Police are appealing for witnesses to an assault on two men, aged 28 and 38, who were attacked in Southgate Avenue, Crawley.
The victims were walking home around 11pm when the assault took place between the railway bridge and Southgate Drive.
One was struck in the face with what is believed to have been a blunt weapon, causing a facial injury requiring hospital treatment. The other was punched several times in the head causing bruising. His mobile telephone, a black HTC, was also stolen after he dropped it on the ground. The victims have stated that around ten people, described as speaking in Polish, were involved.
Detective Constable Rees Hopcraft said: "This apparently unprovoked assault involved a group of ten men against two. After the initial assault, the victims retaliated and a fight broke out, the suspects eventually running off as a group towards the town centre."
This would have been when many people were in the area enjoying a night out or possibly driving by. If you saw anything please call 101 quoting reference number 187 of 26/10.
