Stabbing hoax outside Budgens

A TIME-WASTER has been fined for causing police to dispatch 14 officers, dogs and a helicopter, after claiming he had been stabbed.

The man, whose age is unknown, was given a fixed penalty notice for wasting police time after admitting he had wounded himself. He initially told police he had been stabbed in the stomach. It is believed the man, who has not been named, injured himself with a screwdriver.

Huge fire in Littleton

Fire crews have been tackling a large fire on a trading estate in Littleton.  They were sent to the Brett Trading Estate, in Littleton Lane, Shepperton, just before 1840 BST on Saturday, after reports of 80 tonnes of rubbish alight.

The fire then spread to industrial buildings, some containing acetylene cylinders. That led to an exclusion zone being put in place at the site.  Surrey Fire and Rescue said Heathrow Airport had to be advised as smoke was drifting in that direction.  But a spokesman for the airport said it had not affected any arrivals or departures.

He added that the airport had sent one of its own fire engines to help deal with the blaze.  On Sunday morning, the fire was still being tackled, with people living nearby being told to keep their windows closed.  Fire crews were expected to remain at the site all day.  No-one was injured in the fire, the cause of which is unknown.

Have you seen the Elms family?

I had contact on the site from, it's probably better to just show you the message sent to me but the short story is that someone is looking for the Elms family.

If you can help then please contact us here.

Hi, I'm looking for family that moved to shepperton many years ago.

Its my husbands family and we just wondered if they were still there and if there's a chance of contacting them. My husbands uncles name is Douglas Elms and his wife's name was Nan and they had two sons Brett and Philip.
Is there any chance that you could help me in tracking them down.

Many thanks Debbie and Douglas Price


Residents angry at proposed clay pigeon shoot.

Villagers are vowing to stop clay pigeon shooting on private land known as The Ranges in Shepperton.

David Smith, boss of Thames Car Boot Sales, is planning to attract almost 1,000 people to the fields off Chertsey Road for a monthly car boot sale, plus 28 days of clay pigeon shooting a year. Villagers say the 89-acre site site is unsuitable for both the car boot sales and shooting because it’s liable to flooding, is a quagmire in the winter and will bring litter and noise.

Shepperton Village Hall - Parking Charges?

Drivers could be charged to park in Shepperton after the council said it was spending too much cash maintaining free parking out of town.

A council spokesman said although members were set to consult on proposals to introduce charges in Orchard Meadow, Green Street and the Walled Garden, Sunbury, along with the Broadway, Laleham, and Shepperton Village Hall, the decision will not come back before councillors and will instead be decided by unelected officials.

A council report said drivers will not pay for the first hour of parking, so as not to discourage people from using shops and restaurants, but a small charge would be introduced after.

Speaking at Tuesday night’s meeting, Councillor Colin Davis, portfolio holder for regeneration, said: “Car parks cost this council a fortune. The council has to pay business rates to itself in effect, but then to the Government.

Road rage at Sunbury Cross

A 46-year-old motorist was repeatedly punched in the face at Sunbury Cross traffic lights in an apparently motiveless attack.

He was queueing in the middle lane of Station Road when a youth of about 16 or 17 got out of a silver Ford and approached the victim's silver Toyota Previa and asked him to lower the window so they could speak. As soon as the victim did as asked, the teenager punched him several times in the face, causing a black eye and a cut to his right ear. The suspect, who was white with short straight blond hair and wearing blue combat trousers and a black shirt, got back in his car and drove off towards Feltham.
