#UKHeatwave London Wildlife needs Water too

If you live in an area which doesn’t have much fresh water around, particularly in urban cities, try and put out fresh water for the wildlife such as the birds and foxes. Fill it up in the evening too.

When it is very dry and hot, a lot of our wildlife find it hard to find water.

Put some waterbowls outside for them, and if you can make a mini pond for the them, even better. The butterflies will also appreciate a bit of fruit.

UPDATE: I have had dunnocks, magpies and pigeons drinking from my waterbowl.

London Acid Attack: Wanted by Police ‘Mr Potato Head’: 6ft White Male with tattooed Tear Drops on face

The Met Police are looking for a man in connection with a vicious acid attack. A male threw acid in the faces of two people in a traffic jam in Beckton last Wednesday, and they have suffered life-changing injuries.

The man the police are looking for is 24-year-Old John Tomlin, he has a short brown scruffy beard, very short brown, thinning hair. In addition to the distinctive tear drops on his face, he has ‘sticky out ears’, and looks like the children’s toy, Mr Potato Head.

If you see this male, or are his parents, siblings, aunties, ex-girlfriend, football mate, neighbour, etc let police know by dialling 999. ‘Anyone with information is urged to contact the MetPolice or Crimestoppers if they have any information that may lead to an arrest or provide other information to assist our enquiries

DO NOT APPROACH HIM OR COVER FOR HIM. HE IS DANGEROUS

    Acid attacks are now becoming commonplace, particularly in South Asia. It is far too easy and cheap to get hold of acid.

    However, in Bangladesh acid attacks are decreasing due to improved Government legislation. Better licensing on acidic products, higher pricing, a ban on concentrated acid in certain areas, and an enhanced system of monitoring f
    for acid sales and movement, such as the need to document all transactions involving acid. The Police can only do so much, it is an issue for Government.

    UK TAKE ACTION: Ask your MP to improve legislation to reduce acid attacks https://www.writetothem.com/

    UPDATE: He has handed himself in, clearly the media attention to catch him helped.

Heatwave: RSPCA: 724 motorists in the UK caught leaving their dogs in a hot car

The RSPCA stated that during the five-day heatwave in the UK recently, 724 dog owners left their dogs alone in the car and they had to be rescued.

In Kent, I found two dogs in a car during a heatwave, two retrievers, the owner had disappeared to a coffee shop. One of the dogs was in a bad state. I called the RSPCA, but they were eventually rescued by the local PSCO.

The RSPCA said that one dog was rescued after one and an half hours, according to the parking ticket in a shopping centre car park so passers by ignored the suffering dog for a long time. In my own experience, there were several passers by but nothing was done, they did not notice or seemed interested, it takes a dog lover to notice suffering dogs in a car. Supermarkets have trolley marshalls who should have noticed dogs earlier, why does it take one an half hours for a dog to be rescued?

In parts of the US, they have now passed a new law that if members of the public sees an animal in distress in a car, they can smash the window open. Unfortunately, in the UK, members of the public cannot do this.
