Cliff, think the most important thing is that the man that was assaulted is ok.

Just to say it was by the Baptist church, nothing to do with the Red Lion Pub

Your Harlow does update stories, have a look back at some, they need an update from the police I guess before they can update the site. Hopefully nothing too serious and everyone is OK.

Yes we did get an update. Remanded on bail until December 15th for her next court appearance. Shows how much backlog there is in the court system.

Found a little discrepancy with the age was she 22 or 32 years of age?

Jess is a precious friend of mine. She is a victim of circumstance. Physical abuse and strangulation by the dreads of society was a nasty part of her life. The coward walks free and the Police failed her. Jess did what she did for Self Preservation. She is the sweetest, most compassionate girl you could meet. The Police should hang their heads in shame. Rather than listen to the girl they remand the victim. A DISGRACE.
