Shotgun hold-up at Co-op

first_imgTwo men violently robbed an Oxford supermarket last Friday night, escaping with a five-figure sum. The robbery occurred at approximately 10.30pm at the Coop on Banbury Road, when the men bound up three workers with tape and brandished a weapon, thought to be a shotgun. They also sprayed pepper spray into the eyes of one male member of staff who had to be treated at the John Radcliffe Hospital. A 29-strong team of armed officers and dog handlers were immediately dispatched to the area after police were notified. Detective Parsons of Oxford CID described the two thieves as white males, both of a muscular build and dressed smartly, wearing clothes “similar to that of night club doormen”. One man, about 40, was of a very large build, taller than 6ft, and bald. The other, about 30, was smaller. Parsons told Cherwell, “One of the men was wearing sunglasses, which might have stood out, considering it was night time.” He also believes that one of the men may have smelt pungently after his escape as the pepper spray would have hung on his clothes for some time. A co-op spokesman said, “this was a very upsetting and shocking incident for our staff.” Staff at the Co-op said they had been told not to discuss the robbery. Anyone with information should call 08458 505505 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.ARCHIVE: 4th week TT 2004last_img read more

Leicester boss hands Ndidi new ‘nickname’ after miraculous recovery from surgery

September 26, 2020 0 Comments

first_img Loading… The Nigerian international had been scheduled to sit on the sidelines for four to six weeks after an operation to remove a floating bone from his meniscus. Super Eagles and Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has been branded a “machine” after making a miraculous recovery from knee surgery ahead of Wednesday night’s match against West Ham.Advertisement But just 13 days on from the surgery, he has a “great chance” of featuring at the King Power Stadium against the Hammers.Club boss Brendan Rodgers said the club’s long-serving head physio Dave Rennie had only seen one similarly speedy return to fitness from such an injury, by ex- midfielder Robbie Savage.“He’s made an incredible recovery,” Rodgers said of Ndidi.Rodgers“I spoke to Dave [Rennie] and I think the other one he had was Robbie Savage when he was here. He had a similar sort of injury and came back and played within a very short period of time.“The only other one I can remember was Luis Suarez who had a similar one during the 2014 World Cup. He came back for the group games after virtually a week when he’d gone away with Uruguay and thought he was out.“It’s all about the individual. Genetics more than anything.“Wilf is just a machine. The day after the operation he was on the move. Then he’s starting to jog.“If we were playing in an FA Cup final a few days ago he could probably have been playing in it. But we wanted to make sure the knee was clean. He’s been running, he’s been tackling, he’s been aggressive, he’s had the tests.“If there had been any effects then it would have taken place over the last few days, but he’s come through it really well.“It’s a testament to him and our medical team, the work that’s gone in to get him fit, that’s he’s available.“There will have been other players who unfortunately, genetically, won’t have got through it and had other issues.”At the last count, Leceister have failed to win any of three games since Ndidi’s absence after Premier League defeats to Burnley and Southampton alongside the draw with Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.Wilfred Ndidi is all smiles at Leicester City’s Belvoir Drive baseAnd Rodgers admitted that the Eagles star has been missed.“He’s so valuable to us,” Rodgers said. “That type of player, especially at this time of the season, is vital for you.“He gives a lot of the talent in the team that chance to express himself because of the ground that he covers. He’s like having two players.“He allows the team to defend and defend forward, he covers a lot of space for our attacking players, and there are not too many better him than do that job.“He’s a phenomenal player. So to have him back, and early, is a huge boost for us. He has been a miss, no doubt.’Machine’ – How Leicester City’s Wilfred Ndidi is following the paths of Robbie Savage and Luis Suarez – Leicestershire Live#LCFC #Premier_League https://t.co/vlLDHd5FkP— 90 Minutes Football News (@footy90com) January 21, 2020Read Also: Iwobi, Ndidi listed among most expensive players in the world“He’s improved. If you look at how he plays, it’s not just his aggression and his defensive side – he’s always available for the ball. He’s constantly on it and gets us playing forward.“His biggest strength is that he’s a learner. He has such an appetite to learn the game. He wants to know everything. For him as a young player, you can see the developments because he wants to. He looks after his life. That’s what’s going to give him a great career.“It’s great, great news for us, a big boost,” Rodgers was quoted as saying on leicestermercury.co.uk.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted Content10 Risky Jobs Some Women Do6 Interesting Ways To Make Money With A Drone8 Ways Drones Will Automate Our Future5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks7 Black Hole Facts That Will Change Your View Of The Universe7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterWhat Happens When You Eat Eggs Every Single Day?What Is A Black Hole And Is It Dangerous For Us All?7 Non-Obvious Things That Damage Your Phone6 Incredibly Strange Facts About Hurricanes11 Most Immersive Game To Play On Your Table TopThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

UK military to use Celox Rapid hemostatic gauzes for treating gunshot and

July 20, 2019 0 Comments

first_imgMay 18 2018Celox Rapid is haemostat of choice for all UK military branchesCelox Medical has won a new contract with Team Leidos to supply the UK Ministry of Defense (MOD)with Celox Rapid hemostatic gauzes for use with all branches of the UK military to treat gunshot and stab wounds. The product, which is the latest from Celox Medical, is the first and only hemostatic gauze capable of stopping life-threatening bleeds with a compression time of one minute. The MoD has ordered its first consignment of the innovative haemostat and it will be shortly distributed for use in front line emergency care. The decision by Team Leidos comes following an extensive selection process that identified Celox Rapid as the most cost-effective and fastest acting hemostatic gauze available to stop life-threatening bleeding injuries. The product’s technology, which is based on chitosan, can stop arterial bleeding with only one-minute of compression time — approximately three times faster than other products on the market.Related StoriesChronic inflammation removes motivation by reducing dopamine in the brainPsychiatric diagnoses deemed “scientifically meaningless” by expertsHow electrical stimulation promotes wound healingThe product achieves this with its patented Chito-R technology. The chitosan granules in the gauze stick to moist tissue as the gauze is packed into the wound. The Chito-R then forms an adhesive gel that seals the wound and reduces compression time. This minimal application time is critical in front-line operations.“Time is critical when treating severe injuries in the field and saving time increases the chance of survival for the casualty in an emergency or hostile situation,” explains Geraint Lloyd, business manager at Celox. “To be effective in real use, hemostatic dressings need to work fast. Otherwise, it’s not just the casualty at risk.“It’s not uncommon for front line medics to come under fire when attempting to provide emergency care. Reducing the time spent applying the product and pressure to the wound leads to higher rates of survivability for both the injured and the medic. With the decision to move to Celox Rapid, the UK military is able to improve efficacy, speed and survival rates in front line care.”In addition to its speed of treatment time, Celox Rapid also allows for safer and quicker transportation of casualties. Due to the use of high density gauze, the product packs wounds faster and tactical evacuation tests demonstrated that Celox Rapid stayed in place during transport without any re-bleeding.Beyond the defense industry, Celox Rapid is available for emergency services and security businesses where quick and effective trauma care is required.
