Police blast rioters with water cannon as violence flares again in N Ireland
Rioters have been blasted with a water cannon by police as unrest stirred on the streets of Northern Ireland once more.
After shocking scenes provoked calls for calm this week, violence again flared up on the streets of west Belfast, amid rising tensions in the area.

Stones and fireworks were thrown at police by gangs of youths gathered on the nationalist Springfield Road, close to where Wednesday night’s riots took place.

Those involved were warned by police to “disperse immediately or the water cannon will be used”.

However, those present continued to fire missiles at police and after several warnings, the water cannon was deployed.

Some of those present jeered before fleeing as the water jet came closer.

Justice Minister Naomi Long issued a fresh call for calm after what she called “depressing and reckless” scenes.

She tweeted: “More attacks on police, this time from nationalist youths. Utterly reckless and depressing to see more violence at interface areas tonight.

“My heart goes out to those living in the area who are living with this fear and disturbance. This needs to stop now before lives are lost.”

A heavy police presence was in operation on Thursday night, with water cannon, police dogs and the riot squad in place in a bid to quell another night of unrest in the area.

PSNI officers were seen holding riot shields and being pelted with missiles before causing the youths to flee by charging at them with dogs.

Earlier, the UK Prime Minister and Irish premier made a joint call for calm after days of unrest in Northern Ireland.

Boris Johnson and Taoiseach Micheal Martin spoke over the phone on Thursday about the violent clashes in mainly loyalist areas over the last week.

In a statement, the Irish Government said the two leaders stressed that violence was unacceptable.

“The way forward is through dialogue and working the institutions of the Good Friday Agreement,” the statement said.

“They agreed that the two governments would continue to stay in contact.”

The Biden administration in the US also appealed for calm in Northern Ireland and voiced its support for the Brexit protocol.

At a briefing on Thursday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said: “We are concerned by the violence in Northern Ireland and we join the British, Irish and Northern Irish leaders in their calls for calm.

“We remain steadfast supporters of a secure and prosperous Northern Ireland in which all communities have a voice and enjoy the gains of the hard-won peace.

“We welcome the provisions in both the EU-UK trade cooperation agreement and the Northern Ireland Protocol, which helped protect the gains of the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement.”

Northern Ireland Secretary Brandon Lewis earlier welcomed a united message of condemnation of the violence by the Stormont parties.

He denied that the UK Government had abandoned unionists through the new Brexit arrangements, one of the concerns inflaming tensions among loyalists that have sparked a week of violence, which police said had been on a scale not seen in recent years.

Mr Lewis arrived in Northern Ireland on Thursday to speak to political and faith leaders, as well as the police.

He said there could be no justification for the violence.

“I absolutely recognise the challenge and the sense of identity challenges that people in the unionist community have felt around the protocol and the practical outworkings of it,” he said.

“That’s why we took the actions we took just a couple of weeks ago to help businesses and consumers here in Northern Ireland.

“Obviously, I also appreciate people have talked about the decision last week by the DPP (Director of Public Prosecutions), the situation with people coming out of Covid and as the PSNI has said today, pure criminal activity and encouraging young people to take up criminal activity.

“All of these things come together in a way which is completely unacceptable.”

Mr Lewis expressed his confidence in PSNI Chief Constable Simon Byrne, who the DUP has urged to resign over a decision by prosecutors not to pursue Sinn Fein politicians over alleged coronavirus breaches at a funeral last year.

Mr Lewis pledged to do “all I can to continue to facilitate further constructive discussions on the way forward over the coming days”.

“I remain in close contact with the Prime Minister to keep him updated,” he added.

Earlier in the day, ministers in the Stormont Executive condemned the violence and Stormont MLAs unanimously passed a motion calling for an end to the disorder.

In a joint statement, the five-party Executive said: “While our political positions are very different on many issues, we are all united in our support for law and order and we collectively state our support for policing and for the police officers who have been putting themselves in harm’s way to protect others.

“We, and our departments, will continue to work together to maximise the support we can give to communities and the PSNI to prevent further violence and unrest.”

The Stormont Assembly was recalled from Easter recess for an emergency sitting following a motion calling for MLAs to unequivocally condemn those involved and support the rule of law.

Speaking during the Assembly debate, DUP leader Arlene Foster said the scenes witnessed were “totally unacceptable”.

The First Minister said the injuries to police officers, harm to Northern Ireland’s image and people’s property had taken the region backwards.

Deputy First Minister Michelle O’Neill said the violence was dangerous and unacceptable.

She said illegal loyalist paramilitaries and criminal elements were influencing young people and orchestrating the violence.

“They are holding back their own people and they are holding back their own community,” she said.

But PSNI Assistant Chief Constable Jonathan Roberts later said during a press conference: “I can’t confirm the involvement of paramilitaries but the orchestration of [Wednesday] night’s disorder and the previous nights is the subject of investigation.

“The scale of the disorder last night was at a scale that we have not seen in recent years in Belfast or further afield.

“The fact that it was sectarian violence involving large groups on both sides is not something we have seen in recent years. We believe there was a level of pre-planning.”

The violence is unfolding at a time of increasing rancour in the political sphere amid tensions over Brexit’s Irish Sea trade border and the fallout from the police’s handling of the mass republican funeral that took place during pandemic restrictions last year.

As rioting has flared across Northern Ireland, all four main unionist parties continue to call for Mr Byrne to quit over how his service dealt with the funeral of former IRA leader Bobby Storey.

Unionists are furious at a decision by prosecutors not to take action against 24 Sinn Fein politicians, including Ms O’Neill, for attending the funeral – a decision partly related to the fact that police had engaged with organisers before the event that drew 2,000 people on to the streets.

Mr Byrne has vowed not to resign and has signalled a desire to engage with people who have concerns about policing in the region.

Sunak confirms Cameron’s lobbying activities over Greensill Capital
Rishi Sunak “pushed” officials to explore an alternative plan that could have helped a firm David Cameron was lobbying for, according to new documents.
The Chancellor said the former prime minister “reached out informally by telephone” to him, as well as Economic Secretary John Glen and Financial Secretary Jesse Norman, over Covid support for the collapsed finance company Greensill Capital.

Greensill had approached Treasury officials regarding access to the Covid Corporate Finance Facility (CCFF), administered by the Bank of England.

Mr Sunak said the meetings covered requests made by Greensill to change the terms of the scheme or broaden its scope to allow them access to it, both of which were rejected.

Greensill subsequently filed for insolvency, putting at risk thousands of steelmaking jobs in the UK and rendering Mr Cameron’s reported tens of millions of share options worthless.

The Chancellor defended the decision to listen to the requests given the desire to help businesses survive the Covid-19 pandemic, before confirming Mr Cameron’s lobbying activities.

Mr Sunak also published two text messages he sent to Mr Cameron in April 2020, although messages sent by Mr Cameron have been withheld by the Government.

The Treasury, responding to a Freedom of Information request, said: “These communications were made by David Cameron in his capacity as an employee of Greensill, and with an expectation of confidence.”

The first message from Mr Sunak to Mr Cameron, sent on April 3 2020, read: “Hi David, thanks for your message.

“I am stuck back to back on calls but will try you later this evening and if gets too late, first thing tomorrow. Best, Rishi.”

The second message from Mr Sunak sent on April 23 said: “Hi David, apologies for the delay.

“I think the proposals in the end did require a change to the market notice but I have pushed the team to explore an alternative with the Bank that might work.

“No guarantees, but the Bank are currently looking at it and Charles should be in touch. Best, Rishi.”

The Treasury also published messages sent to and from its second permanent secretary, Charles Roxburgh.

Mr Sunak, in a letter sent to shadow chancellor Anneliese Dodds on Thursday, explained Greensill’s requests to change the CCFF.

He then wrote: “I can confirm that David Cameron reached out informally by telephone to me, and to the Economic Secretary and the Financial Secretary, on the matter of Greensill Capital’s access to the CCFF.

“The matter was referred to the relevant officials and, following appropriate consultations as outlined in the previous requests, the request was turned down.

“During this process, this was communicated to Greensill Capital by officials and, in parallel, by me to David Cameron.”

Labour has called on the Government to tighten the law on lobbying amid continuing controversy over Mr Cameron’s activities on behalf of Greensill.

The former premier has been exonerated by a watchdog.

The Registrar of Consultant Lobbyists concluded Mr Cameron was an employee of Greensill so was not required to declare himself on the register of consultant lobbyists.

Ms Dodds said: “These messages raise very serious questions about whether the Chancellor may have broken the ministerial code.

“They suggest that Greensill Capital got accelerated treatment and access to officials, and that the Chancellor ‘pushed’ officials to consider Greensill’s requests.

“The Chancellor’s decision to open the door to Greensill Capital has put public money at risk.

“There must be a full, transparent and thorough investigation into the chain of events that saw Greensill awarded lucrative contracts, the freedom of Whitehall and the right to lend millions of pounds of Government-backed Covid loans.”

SNP Cabinet Office spokesman Stewart Hosie said Boris Johnson’s Government was “stumbling from one scandal to the next”, adding: “The latest developments around Greensill Capital and access to Government departments granted to firms with close links to the Tory party has only raised further questions.

“Tory ministers and former prime ministers casually texting each other over Government access utterly reeks.

“When MPs return from recess, Rishi Sunak must come before Parliament and set the record straight over his full exchange with David Cameron and what the outcome of those messages were.”

Two text messages from Chancellor Rishi Sunak to former prime minister David Cameron have been published
They've been revealed amid a lobbying row
The Government has faced questions over its links with Greensill Capital, which has filed for insolvency after failing to secure support through the Government’s Covid Corporate Financing Facility.

Concerns have also been raised over lobbying by Mr Cameron on Greensill’s behalf – including sending text messages to Mr Sunak.

The first message from Rishi Sunak to David Cameron, sent on April 3 2020, read: “Hi David, thanks for your message. I am stuck back to back on calls but will try you later this evening and if gets too late, first thing tomorrow. Best, Rishi.”

The second message from Mr Sunak sent on April 23 said: “Hi David, apologies for the delay. I think the proposals in the end did require a change to the market notice but I have pushed the team to explore an alternative with the Bank that might work.

“No guarantees, but the Bank are currently looking at it and Charles should be in touch. Best, Rishi.”

The Chancellor provided the messages following a Freedom of Information request.

The Treasury response added: “We are withholding the communications sent by David Cameron to the Chancellor. These communications were made by David Cameron in his capacity as an employee of Greensill, and with an expectation of confidence.”

Rishi Sunak also confirmed David Cameron lobbied three ministers, including himself, over the matter of Greensill Capital’s access to a Covid support scheme.

In a letter sent to shadow chancellor Anneliese Dodds on Thursday, Mr Sunak wrote: “I can confirm that David Cameron reached out informally by telephone to me, and to the Economic Secretary and the Financial Secretary, on the matter of Greensill Capital’s access to the CCFF (Covid Corporate Financing Facility).

“The matter was referred to the relevant officials and, following appropriate consultations as outlined in the previous requests, the request was turned down.

NI Secretary challenges Loyalist Communities Council to condemn violence
The Secretary of State for Northern Ireland has challenged the Loyalist Communities Council (LCC) to publicly condemn recent violence across the region.
Brandon Lewis was speaking after a week of unrest in mainly loyalist areas.

He said “words failed him” at the idea of adults encouraging a 13-year-old to engage in some of the violent scenes seen across the region in recent days.

Last month, the LCC – which speaks for loyalist paramilitary groups – said they were temporarily withdrawing their backing of the Belfast Agreement amid mounting concerns over the contentious Northern Ireland Protocol governing Irish Sea trade post-Brexit.

Mr Lewis said the right thing for the LCC to do would be to come out and be very clear that they were against violence.

“There is a proper political process and they have been clear that violence in the past is not the way to move forward and they need to be clear about that again,” he said.

“I would like to see them out condemning what we have seen over the last few days, and call on people in communities to behave in a way that allows the political process to represent them and work with them and people to get involved in that.

“As human beings, we would all like to see a situation where we do not have criminal gangs and adults encouraging children and young people to throw away their opportunities by getting involved in thuggery and hooliganism.

“Words fail me for what goes through an adult’s mind to encourage a 13-year-old kid to behave that way.

“We have all got a duty to call that out, including the LCC.”

Tiger Woods car crash caused by excessive speed
Police looking into the cause of Tiger Woods’ car crash say the 15-time major winner was travelling at between 84-87 miles per hour at the time of the accident.
Woods was released from hospital earlier this month after sustaining a number of serious injuries when his SUV overturned in Los Angeles on February 23.

The 45-year-old was the sole occupant in his vehicle which struck a median strip, rolled and came to a rest on its side near a steep road.

Speaking on Wednesday, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said the primary cause of the accident was driving at a “speed unsafe for the road conditions and the inability to negotiate the curve of the roadway.

“Estimated speeds at the first area of impact were 84-87mph and the final estimated speed when the vehicle struck the tree was 75mph.”

The speed limit on the stretch of road where the accident occurred is 45mph.

Sheriff Villanueva added: “There were were no citations issued and there were no signs of impairment.”

In May 2017, with five prescription drugs in his system, Woods was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence when he was found asleep at the wheel of his car and later pleaded guilty to reckless driving.

Officials said they do not believe Woods was using his phone at the time of the accident but that he may have inadvertently pressed the accelerator instead of the break when he realised he was losing control, based on information taken from the vehicle’s data recorder.

Woods was wearing his seatbelt and the airbags in the vehicle had deployed. The former world number one had to be pulled out through the windscreen.

Manchester Arena and Parsons Green terrorists refuse to attend court
Manchester Arena plotter Hashem Abedi and Parsons Green Tube bomber Ahmed Hassan have been told they may be “forced” to attend court after refusing to leave their jail cells
They both face a charge of attacking a prison officer.

Abedi, 23, and Hassan, 21, are accused alongside another suspect, Muhammed Saeed, 23, of assault occasioning actual bodily harm on Paul Edwards at HMP Belmarsh on May 11 last year.

But neither Abedi nor Hassan appeared via video link from the category A HMP Frankland in County Durham for the hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday morning.

Asked by District Judge Tan Ikram whether Abedi and Hassan were “refusing to attend” the hearing, an unnamed Frankland prison officer replied: “They’re refusing to come down to this location, they are in their cells on the wings.”

He added: “They’ve not made any formal representation, they just insisted they’re not going to attend in any shape or form, sir.”

The district judge relisted the hearing for Thursday, the day Abedi turns 24, for pleas to be heard, unless the matter gets moved straight to the crown court at a later date, at the request of the prosecution.

He told the prison officer: “I’m not sure if you will get the opportunity to speak to the two defendants.

“But if you are (speaking to them), they are advised to attend – one of the powers the court has is the use of force.”

Saeed, originally from Old Trafford in Manchester and currently awaiting sentence for another matter, appeared via video link from the category A HMP Whitemoor in Cambridgeshire wearing a red jumper.

He spoke to confirm his identity and to enter a not guilty plea. He was further remanded in court until May 5.

Outlining the case, prosecutor Nicholas Alexander alleged the three defendants were out of their cells on May 11 last year when they entered an office and assaulted Mr Edwards as he sat at a desk.

Mr Edwards received cuts to his head and bruising, and was also kicked.

He has ongoing hearing problems as a result of the attack, the court heard.

The district judge provisionally relisted the hearing for Abedi and Hassan to be produced, again via video link, on Thursday, unless the prosecution elects to “circumvent” the hearing.

Gavin Williamson launches drive against poor school behaviour
The Education Secretary has launched a push against bad behaviour in schools following a pandemic year which has “inevitably” affected pupils’ discipline.
Writing in a national newspaper, Mr Williamson said long periods in lockdown had impacted on children’s “discipline and order” and now that schools had returned it was imperative to ensure “out-of-control behaviour” did not destroy learning environments.

His comments come with the Department for Education set to announce details of its £10 million “behaviour hub” programme, which it says will be operating in time for the summer term.

Department officials have identified 22 “lead schools” with strong reputations for behaviour and discipline to assist and advise other schools struggling in that area.

Mr Williamson has made banning mobile phones in schools a key part of his plan, saying they not only distract from “exercise and good old-fashioned play” but also foment cyber bullying and the inappropriate use of social media.

“While technology has been invaluable keeping children learning during lockdowns and we support its use, it’s now time to put the screens away, especially mobile phones,” Mr Williamson wrote, stipulating he was not referring to the controlled use of laptops of tablets in class.

He added: “Maintaining good discipline is an absolute must in any classroom and is one of our key priorities. Out-of-control behaviour will also destroy the wholesome and happy environment that every school should have, leading to bullying, and turning playgrounds from a place of joy to a jungle.

“That’s why I am totally behind schools and colleges taking firm action to create a disciplined and calm environment, and putting in place a strong behaviour culture where students are taught how to behave well and are clear about what is expected of them.”

Gareth Southgate heads back to Middlesbrough for England’s Euro 2020 warm-ups
England will prepare for their shot at European Championship glory in Middlesbrough.
With Wembley handed over to UEFA at the start of June ahead of the tournament, Gareth Southgate’s men are heading on the road in the build-up to Euro 2020.

England will play their group matches in the capital and be based at St George’s Park for the tournament, but the preparation camp and warm-up friendlies will be held in Middlesbrough.

Southgate skippered Boro to Carling Cup glory in 2004 – the club’s first-ever major trophy – and the UEFA Cup final two years later, before spending a three-year stint as manager there up until 2009.

The England boss will return to his old stomping ground this summer, with the Riverside Stadium hosting the Euro warm-up fixtures against Austria on June 2 and Romania on June 6.

The Teesside double-header could also see the Three Lions host fans for the first time since the 7-0 Euros qualification win against Montenegro at Wembley in November 2019.

“Should it be deemed safe for fans to attend these forthcoming fixtures then any ticketing arrangements will be communicated via The FA and not Middlesbrough FC,” the Football Association said.

“The FA will continue to liaise with relevant authorities and explore the possibility of supporters being in attendance.”

England have played in Manchester, Sunderland, Leeds, Leicester and Southampton since 2016.

The Riverside Stadium, which was opened in 1995, has only once previously hosted the men’s senior team, when Sven-Goran Eriksson’s side beat Slovakia 2-1 in a Euro 2004 qualifier in June 2003.

England Women lost 2-1 to Brazil at the stadium in October 2019, while the men’s Under-21 side have played there eight times.

Comedy club cancels pilot event over Covid-19 vaccine passport confusion
A comedy club has pulled out of a trial to test how venues can operate safely after it said the Government failed to clarify whether it would involve Covid-19 vaccine passports
The Hot Water Comedy Club in Liverpool said it was subjected to a “hate campaign” online after reports suggested it was working with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to trial Covid-status certification.

Club co-owner Binty Blair said he has tried to contact DCMS to clarify whether Covid-19 vaccine passports will be trialled in the pilot event, but to no avail.

The club has subsequently cancelled its event – which was due to be the first to be trialled – on April 16 at the M&S Bank Arena Auditorium, which would have had an audience of 300 people.

“The reason for us backing out is the Government wasn’t clear about the Covid passports,” Mr Blair told the PA news agency.

“The problem is we don’t know what we signed up for.”

DCMS announced over the weekend that a series of trial events are planned for the coming months as officials look to find a way for venues such as football grounds and nightclubs to reopen without the need for social distancing.

It said Covid-status certification will also be trialled as part of the programme, while detailing a number of events on an initial list of pilots, including Hot Water Comedy Club.

Mr Blair said he had agreed to take part in the pilot in March but only learned of the Government’s plans to trial Covid-19 vaccine passports two days ago.

He said four acts have lost £300 each as a result of the cancelled event.

Speaking on the online abuse, he said: “Most of them have been mental.

“Some have accused us of being backhanders.

“I’m not really fussed about the backlash from keyboard warriors but some have emailed us with genuine concerns.”

He said the club has been “significantly damaged” after receiving more than 4,000 angry messages.

It comes after Liverpool City Council said on Sunday that events taking place in the city to trial how venues will operate safely will not involve vaccine passports.

The council said the Events Research Programme (ERP) will explore how different approaches to social distancing, ventilation and test-on-entry protocols, including the use of lateral flow tests, could be used ahead of Step 4 of the road map out of lockdown in June.

Oxford/AstraZeneca jab trial in children paused
The trial of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine in children has been paused while regulators investigate reports of a rare form of blood clot among adults.
But it is waiting for more information from the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) before giving any more vaccinations.

Regulatory bodies from the UK, Europe and the World Health Organisation (WHO) are assessing data on the jab and a potential association with a rare form of blood clot.

The WHO and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) have confirmed they will publish findings later this week.

The University of Oxford said in a statement: “Whilst there are no safety concerns in the paediatric clinical trial, we await additional information from the MHRA on its review of rare cases of thrombosis/thrombocytopaenia that have been reported in adults, before giving any further vaccinations in the trial.

“Parents and children should continue to attend all scheduled visits and can contact the trial sites if they have any questions.”

Sage adviser Professor Calum Semple said that the decision was made out of “exceptional caution” and urged people to continue accepting Oxford/AstraZeneca jabs.

He told Channel 4 News: “This has been done out of exceptional caution and the big story still is that for a middle-aged, slightly overweight man, such as myself, my risk of death is one in 13,000 – the risk of this rare clot, which might not even be associated with the vaccine, is probably one in a million.

“So I’m still going to say it’s better to get the vaccine than not get the vaccine and we can pause and take time to carefully consider the value for children because they’re not at risk of death from Covid.”

He added: “If you’ve been called for the vaccine then you’re in an age group that is very likely to benefit from the vaccine. So the bottom line is if you’ve been called for the vaccine I would urge you to take the vaccine.”

The Prime Minister urged the public to trust the regulator on vaccine safety.

Boris Johnson said getting the population vaccinated was “the key thing”, while he visited the AstraZeneca manufacturing plant in Macclesfield.

“On the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine, the best thing people should do is look at what the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) say, our independent regulator – that’s why we have them, that’s why they are independent,” he said.

“Their advice to people is to keep going out there, get your jab, get your second jab.”

He added: “The best thing of all is to vaccinate our population, get everybody out getting the jab, that’s the key thing and that’s what I would advocate, number one”.

The MHRA is also investigating reports of a very rare and specific type of blood clot in the brain, known as cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST), occurring together with low levels of platelets (thrombocytopenia) following vaccination.

It has not confirmed when it will report its findings.

The EMA’s said that its safety committee has “not yet reached a conclusion and the review is currently ongoing” but it is expected to announce findings on Wednesday or Thursday.

Meanwhile, experts from the WHO confirmed they were also convening a panel of experts to assess the data and will publish findings on Wednesday or Thursday.

Dr Rogerio Pinto de Sa Gaspar, director of regulation and prequalification at the WHO, said: “There is no link for the moment between the vaccine and thrombolytic events with thrombocytopenia.

“There are a number of committees and regulatory authorities looking at data and new data is coming every day and [they are] assessing those data.

“Of course it’s under evaluation and we wait for some feedback from those committees in coming days and hours.

“The appraisal that we have for the moment, and this is under consideration by the experts, is that the benefit-risk assessment for the vaccine is still largely positive.”

He announced that the WHO will convene its Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety to examine the data.

“So we expect that probably by the end of Wednesday or Thursday we might have a fresh conclusive assessment from our experts,” he added.

“But at the present moment we are confident that the benefits risk assessment for the vaccine is largely still positive.”

The MHRA has said it identified 30 cases of rare blood clot events out of 18.1 million doses of the jab administered up to and including March 24.

There have been seven deaths among the 30 cases.

But the regulator said the benefits of the vaccine in preventing coronavirus outweigh any risks and it urged the public to continue coming forward for the jab.

MHRA chief executive Dr June Raine said: “People should continue to get their vaccine when invited to do so.

“Our thorough and detailed review is ongoing into reports of very rare and specific types of blood clots with low platelets following the Covid-19 vaccine AstraZeneca.

“No decision has yet been made on any regulatory action.”

The 30 cases in the UK include 22 reports of CVST and eight of other thrombosis events with low platelets.

CVST clots stop blood draining from the brain properly.
