Five people face jail after a man was tortured Image: Could not subscribe, try again laterInvalid Email A gang beat a man, pushed a gun into his mouth and waterboarded him when they became suspicious of him during a drug deal. Lee Torrance went to the house in Ashcroft Road, Gainsborough, to buy MCat but ended up being handcuffed, punched , threatened with a gun, beaten with sticks and then had water poured over his face.
I rang the bell and didn’t get an answer. I went round the back and jumped over the fence.

I’m blown away by the level of support from fellow rail enthusiasts in building this site. Their willingness to participate in its construction with no prospect of financial gain, just the satisfaction of being involved, is bloody marvellous. Starting in May , Derek’s input has been a massive undertaking and there have been times when the pair of us – just two bungling old geezers with a mutual love for trains and railways – were on our arthritic knees by the sheer size of it all.
And now here we are with three finished pages…or are they? The interest shown by modellers has spurred Derek to suggest a series of articles on the ‘Britannias’ that will be of particular interest to model makers Since taking early retirement, Derek’s knowledge of all things power-driven led him to making a start on correcting the many anomalies he found in books and magazines regarding the BR Class 7MT Britannias.
Derek’s research has taken him more than 6 years and his findings now run into three page on this site. This is in complete contrast to his original reservations.
It also has some history in the beginnings of Received Pronunciation and southern England accents. The above links expand on these in detail. The area is known historically for its food, examples of which include Red Leicester , the Lincolnshire sausage , the Melton Mowbray pork pie , Stilton , the Bakewell tart , and the Bramley apple.

Grateful if anyone can answer ANY the following questions please: For example was in when the Scarborough operations were sold onto East Yorkshire. However what other coaches were allocated to this contract, please? I would be grateful for any responses, thanks in anticipation. To the best of my knowledge, these coaches operated the RCA services for several years.
These later ones were taken into the Scarborough and District arm of East Yorkshire early following the takeover of WA including Hardwicks. As far as I can recall, the RCA contract continued after the takeover with , and doing the business until the end of the contract whenever that may have been. A lovely coach to drive even though the 2 speed axle blocked off in high ratio meant crawler up Blue Bank all the other cubs were the same.
The RCA contract fleet also their own livery see for example http:

Taylor edited by John Clayson This series of photographs was taken by John in the summer of while walking the northern section of the former High Dyke branch line, a distance of 3 miles. The branch was a mineral line which transported locally mined ironstone to a junction at Highdyke on the East Coast Main Line, just north of Stoke Tunnel. However, the connections for the branch had been installed at Highdyke by November , so the branch may well have been in partial use well before its official opening.
There had been a junction at Highdyke since when a third running line from Grantham, the Up Goods, was extended as far as the approach to the two-track Stoke Tunnel. The branch had originally been promoted in about as the Waltham and Highdyke Railway, because it was intended to connect Highdyke with Waltham-on-the-Wolds, a terminus on the GNR’s branch line from Scalford, Leicestershire.
The High Dyke branch was built relatively cheaply across undulating countryside and it was quite steeply graded in parts, being known to generations of Grantham train crew as ‘the alps’.

Newton was undoubtedly a genius when it came to math, but he had some failings early on. He never did particularly well in school and when put in charge of running the family farm, he failed miserably, so poorly in fact that an uncle took charge and sent him off to Cambridge where he finally blossomed into the scholar we know today.
Synopsis Born on January 4, , in Woolsthorpe, England, Isaac Newton was an established physicist and mathematician, and is credited as one of the great minds of the 17th century Scientific Revolution. With discoveries in optics, motion and mathematics, Newton developed the principles of modern physics. In , he published his most acclaimed work, Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy , which has been called the single most influential book on physics.
Newton died in London on March 31, He was the only son of a prosperous local farmer, also named Isaac Newton, who died three months before he was born. A premature baby born tiny and weak, Newton was not expected to survive. When he was 3 years old, his mother, Hannah Ayscough Newton, remarried a well-to-do minister, Barnabas Smith, and went to live with him, leaving young Newton with his maternal grandmother. The experience left an indelible imprint on Newton, later manifesting itself as an acute sense of insecurity.
He anxiously obsessed over his published work, defending its merits with irrational behavior.

There are also several ring ditches on the higher ground above Saltersford. She had a hall, two carucates and land for three ploughs without geld, and burgesses. Ivo had one church and four mills rendering 12 shillings, and eight acres of meadow without geld.
