Category : Crime , News , UK News

AMIR Khan has opened up for the first time about how he fought off 20 thugs armed with crowbars in a terrifying car jacking he feared would end his boxing career.
The former world champ says being attacked by the armed gang trying to steal his £100,000 Range Rover made him determined to change his life and fight crime in lawless Britain.

Amir, 32, spoke out about the attack outside a Birmingham club in 2012 as he backed our Beat The Blades campaign to tackle the stabbing epidemic plaguing our streets.
In an exclusive interview from the Bolton gym where he helps troubled youngsters, Amir told The Sun on Sunday: “It was really scary because I knew my life was on the line.
“When you are in a situation like that you have to react quickly or you are going to get hurt. There were about 20 guys, all with metal bars.
“I remember the first guy swinging this metal stick at my head but luckily he missed. He tried a second time and I countered him. He was out cold.

“Then another guy came at me but I was able to tackle him as well.
“Then the three of us [Amir, his boxer brother Haroon and another man] drove off as fast as we could.
“People might say I was a coward for running away but I am happy I did, because I am still here. Those guys were big and out to hurt me.”
The masked gang later posted a video online showing off designer goods they claimed to have stolen from the star.

Amir said: “I can’t remember what they stole but we were definitely targeted. It was scary and it made me think about things.
“If I had stayed it could have been the end of my boxing career.
“It also made me want to do more to stop people getting into crime because I never want my daughters to experience violence like that.”

Amir, dad to Lamaisah, four, and eight-month-old Alayna, today also opens up about his battle to keep his five-year marriage to American Faryal Makhdoom, 27, on track.
The sportsman invited The Sun on Sunday to his Amir Khan Academy to demonstrate the work he is doing to help keep kids off the street.
As well as offering boxing lessons to a dozen regulars, he brings in youngsters from local schools to give them advice on staying out of trouble.
Amir said: “I stayed on the right path when I was younger because I took up sport at an early age.
Simon Ashton The Amir Khan Academy helps keeps kids off the streets[/caption]
“I was just eight when I started boxing and if you learn how to punch a bag you don’t want to fight when you get out on the street.
“I have friends who got much better grades than me at school and I assumed they would go on and get good jobs.
“But some of them got mixed up with drugs and guns and they ended up in jail. That could’ve been me.
“I’m still friends with those people but I don’t like to think about the young people in my area going the same way.

“I have three coaches at my gym and I try to get involved as much as I can. We train them how to box and we also talk to them about life.
“I always tell them, ‘If you hang around on street corners it is hard not to make mistakes’.
“On the streets it is all about reputation and it is too easy to go from carrying a knife to stabbing someone.
“We’ve already helped a few kids on the verge of joining a gang to turn their lives around. I only wish I could work with more schools across the country.”
Simon Ashton Amir has already helped some kids turn their lives around[/caption]
Amir is still trying to put his own house in order following a series of cheating scandals that threatened to tear apart his marriage to Faryal.
In January he was accused of having a fling with model Sandy Hunter, 32, and in May beautician Sophia Hammani, 22, claimed he bedded her, an allegation Amir denies.
He said: “I made mistakes in the past and put my wife through some difficult times.
“I came very close to losing Faryal a year ago and that was a huge wake-up call, because my family is all that matters to me.
Last year a series of cheating scandals threatened to end Amir’s marriage to Faryal
“I know how close I was to her walking out the door and not being able to see my kids again. That made me realise what I want out of life.
“I just want peace and happiness. I’m too old to be driving fast cars and going out partying.
“The boys have to force me to go to nightclubs now. It used to be the other way around.
“I’m a much stronger person as a result of what happened and my favourite thing in the world is to be at home with my family.
Amir’s top priority now is his family
“Faryal and I are like best friends, we are very loved-up. We hang out all the time and she travels with me whenever she can.
“My daughters are just amazing. They are both so calm and well-behaved. The older one loves colouring books and when I go away for work they ask me to bring back princess dolls. I am away more than I want to be but everything I do is for my family.”
Amir has launched his own knife crime campaign, Ring The Changes, with financial trading broker ThinkMarkets.
As well as raising money, he has teamed up with the firm to promote a scheme that will give jobs to 100 young people from poor backgrounds.

Backing our own Beat The Blades drive to stop the scourge that has led to 131 killings in London alone this year, he said: “We can all do more to tackle this, your campaign is really good.
“I can’t believe how easy it is to buy weapons.
“I’ve seen huge knives for sale in the shop windows of ordinary stores close to where I live.
“There’s no way that should be allowed, and it is surprising how bad things have got in this country.

Crooked UK Border Force official convicted for smuggling £3.8million of drugs and firearms into the UK

Category : Crime , News , UK News

A CROOKED UK Border Force official has been convicted of smuggling £3.8million of drugs and firearms into the UK.
Simon Pellett, 37, was arrested in France last year in a Government transit van containing cocaine, heroin, ten guns and ammunition.
Press Association Simon Pellett is facing years in jail for smuggling £3.8million drugs and firearms into the UK[/caption]
Alex Howard, 35, of Sittingbourne, Kent, was guilty of smuggling drugs with Pellett, of Dover, and David Baker, 55, of Beckenham, South London.
Kate Mulholland, of the CPS, said: “Our prosecution was able to prove that each of these men must have known they were smuggling firearms and drugs into the UK.
“Their defence that they did not know the real contents of the package was clearly not credible, and was disproved by surveillance, phone evidence, and the amount of drugs and weapons involved.”
Pellett and Baker were also convicted of importing firearms, but Howard was cleared at Isleworth crown court. They will be sentenced on Friday.

Missing Sarah Wellgreen was ‘poised to buyout her ex-boyfriend from their home’ and planned to marry lover in Spain

Category : Crime , missing person , News , UK News

MISSING Sarah Wellgreen was poised to buy out her ex-boyfriend’s share of their house and marry her new love.
Sarah, 46 — who cops fear has been murdered — was still living with ex Ben Lacomba, 38, when she vanished on October 9.
Sarah Green didn’t use her bank cards or mobile phone before she disappearedPA:Press Association
They shared the home in New Ash Green, Kent, for the sake of their three children but she had secured a mortgage to buy him out.
Her new partner Neil James, 45, said her need to live with Ben forced their own relationship to end briefly this summer. But they reunited and planned to wed in Guildford with another ceremony in Majorca  – where Wellgreen previously lived with her ex Ben Lacomba – after inquiring about a service at the Guildford Registry Office.
Neil said: “Sarah wanted the best for her children, which is why she was trying to buy the house. After we got back together she had a mortgage approved. She was going to give him £50k and he was going to vacate the house. We were going to get married.”
The revelation comes after it emerged CCTV at the house was switched off on the night she went missing and police have no way of charting how she left.

Last night cops were searching an area of Dartford apparently looking for her missing black iPhone 4. A man in his 30s has been arrested and freed on police bail.

Boyfriend Neil said: “We were going to get married. We were going to do it over in Spain.
“I don’t know whether she told the family. But we’d looked into it and we’d planned what we wanted.
“She was looking at all these different places, but particularly Mallorca as that’s where she’s got Spanish friends.
“She kept in touch with people on Mallorca and we went there last year with the kids. It was a happy place for her.”

Mum-of-five Sarah Jane Wellgreen went missing from her home in New Ash Green, Kent on October 9

Detectives say they are examining her complicated private life for clues as to her whereabouts.
But it was reported that cops are also investigating why home security cameras at the semi-detached property were turned off on the night she left home with just her phone, according to the Daily Telegraph.
Kent Police declined to comment on the alleged CCTV mystery.
Forensics teams and dogs units are continuing to scour woodland — with their search focused on a Scratchers’ Lane near Dartford, four miles from Sarah’s home.

Ex Ben Lacomba, 38, was arrested and held for three days before being released pending further investigation.
Taxi driver Ben’s dad Juan, who lives nearby, said: “My son hasn’t done anything wrong.
He told The Sun Online:“I don’t know what’s happened to Sarah.
“You can only imagine what it’s been like for their little children.”
Ben Lacomba is the dad of three of Sarah’s children. He was arrested and held for three days before being released pending investigation
Meanwhile, the “high profile” search area has today been extended to parts of Dartford town centre.
Search teams are scouring areas of bushes and undergrowth as well as bins in different locations in the town centre – eight miles from Sarah’s home in New Ash Green.
And Sarah’s eldest son has also been in contact with volunteers to tell them he “just wants his mum home”.
Sharon Brine, who is coordinating searches, said Sarah’s son Lewis, 22, had been in touch from his home in Portsmouth.

“Lewis is absolutely beside himself, saying he just wants his mum home.
“I’m heartbroken for the kids. This is what’s driving us.”
Cops have instructed the volunteer search party to look out for her missing black iPhone 4 — the only item Sarah took with her when she vanished.
Sarah’s first husband Peter Symons said his ex had confided in him, saying she was ‘madly in love’SWNS:South West News Service
Last night The Sun Online revealed that Sarah had told her ex-husband that she wanted to get married to a mystery man just weeks before she vanished.
Peter Symons, 54, said Sarah was “madly in love” with a man in Portsmouth — and may have been living with him.
He said: “I know that she had a new boyfriend in Portsmouth who she was madly in love with and wanted to get married to.
“I haven’t got a clue who he is — all I know is that she had connections in Portsmouth.”
Peter and Sarah met in Portsmouth and married in 1989 but split a year later after moving to Oxfordshire.
They remained friends however — and kept in touch on Facebook.
Sarah Wellgreen with her boyfriend Neil James, who said they had spoken on the night of her disappearanceFacebook
Peter told how they last spoke around eight months ago.
Speaking at home in Carterton, Oxon, he said: “We were on talking terms, which was good.
“Our marriage finished a long time ago – about 1990 it finished – but it’s water under the bridge.
“I read one thing that she might have been living back in Kent — so maybe her relationship in Portsmouth broke down, I don’t know.
“I know that he had a couple of children and that she was in love with him and wanted to get married to him.”
The  46-year-old was last seen in the Bazes Shaw area of New Ash Green, Kent
Peter’s claims came as Sarah’s former boyfriend Neil James revealed he had spoken with her on the phone on the night that she vanished — the last contact she is known to have had with anyone.
Neil, of Farnham, Surrey, told MailOnline: “On the Tuesday night I spoke to Sarah on the phone at 9.24pm, the conversation went on for about 15 minutes.
“She said she was at home and she was in bed.
“Every night Sarah and I would speak and every morning either she or I would say ‘morning honey’ and text and that would normally be before 8am.
“On Wednesday morning I texted her about 7.50am ‘morning honey, how’s you?’, that sort of thing, and it didn’t deliver.”

He said at first he “didn’t think anything of it” but panicked later when he couldn’t get through, finally calling her children and then the police.
Neil revealed they had split up in the summer and she began internet dating and seeing other men, but kept in contact with him.
Cops were joined by more than 200 volunteers have been scouring woods near the home she shares with her ex-partner Ben and their three children — six-year-old twins and a 12-year-old son.
Sarah, who also has two older sons — Lewis Burdett, 22, and Jack, 21 — still worked in Portsmouth and is said to have spent time in Surrey, where colleagues believe she had found a new man through online dating.
Neil has rubbished the idea that Sarah had multiple boyfriends.
But her uncle claimed that Sarah could have a new lover, saying she could have travelled abroad after starting a new relationship with a toyboy.

Ronald Wellgreen, 61, revealed he had been contacted by a man from Farnborough last week claiming to have been in a relationship with Sarah.
But the mum-of-five had reportedly told him in June she was seeing someone new and was no longer with him.
He said: “He said they were messaging each other every day until she went missing – and he hasn’t heard from her since.
“I remember her telling me in June that she and this man in Farnborough weren’t together anymore, but he seemed to think they were still in a relationship.”

Ronald said Sarah has an apartment abroad – understood to be Alicante – and used to run a bar in Spain with Nerf gun enthusiast Ben.
Ronald said he was “gobsmacked” by the probe.
“It looks to me like she could have died, but I’ve got no reason to think she was killed by someone – why would she be?” he said.
“I do think she could be abroad somewhere – she has an apartment abroad.
“I have no idea why she would have left – no matter what happened on that Tuesday she would have wanted to take her children with her.”

The manager of the beauty salon where missing mother Sarah Wellgreen worked today said two different men picked her up from work in as many months.
Martin Prus, manager of Puresun Health and Beauty Centre, said Neil James, from Farnborough, Hants, and another younger man had been to the salon to see the 46-year-old.
Mr Prus, 43, said: “I remember Neil James. He came to the salon about three months ago to pick Sarah up after she finished work.
“He introduced himself and seemed like a nice man – I remember him telling me he was taking her out to a nice restaurant after she finished work.
“I’m not sure how long exactly they were in a relationship, but I remember they were together for a while from what she had told me.
Sarah’s boyfriend Neil James said they texted on the night of her disappearanceFacebook
“A month later, around August time, a younger man came to the salon and dropped Sarah at work because he needed to use her car.
“He looked Italian or Spanish, and was probably in his thirties.
“Sarah asked me if the man could borrow my drill because he was doing some work to her house in Portsmouth.
“I don’t remember his name, he was much quieter than Neil, but spoke very nicely and was polite.
“He then returned a few hours later to take Sarah home after work.
“I’m not entirely sure if they were officially a couple or not or if they had just started dating, but there was definitely something there between them.”

Kent police said detectives from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate are investigating.
Yesterday they described her disappearance is “totally out of character”.
Det Supt Paul Fotheringham said: “She’d just had a new job offer she was looking forward to.
“She has spoken to friends about looking forward to the future and, most significantly, she has now missed one of her children’s birthdays.”
Sarah vanished on October 9, leaving home with just her phone
Her distraught family have been appealing for information after it was revealed her car was left outside her home and she has not used her phone or bank card since she vanished.
On Wednesday dad Anthony Wellgreen, 67, said: “I don’t understand it at all. It’s not in her character to disappear like this.
“Nothing like this has ever happened before. We are all so worried. Two weeks is a long time to be away.”
Horrified neighbours in the sleepy village of New Ash Green have been praying the mum is safe as cops extended the search area around her home.
One, who didn’t want to be named, said: “I’m hoping for her children’s sake that Sarah is still alive.
“She never really left the house much from what I could tell so this idea she’s gone and started a new life is very unusual and I doubt that’s the case.
“I’m worried sick about her.
“I know the family well. She had six-year-old twins and a 12-year-old and they are lovely. They’re always very smart and well looked after. They’re friends with our grandchildren so we know each other as families.
“I feel so sorry for them. This is absolutely awful.”
Neil James said he and Sarah usually texted every morningFacebook
Another, who spoke with Sarah the day she vanished, said: “She made a joke, saying ‘oh, you got here before me today’.
“She was really happy and smiley, not acting strangely or like she was going to disappear.
“It’s really out of character for her. It’s weird.”
Cops are asking for anyone who saw anything suspicious in the village overnight on October 9 to come forward.
They are also urging locals to check outhouses and areas surrounding their properties for any sign of Sarah.
Sarah’s ex-partner, Nerf gun enthusiast Ben Lacomba, 38
Mr Lacomba is the father of three of the mum-of-five’s children
DSI Fotheringham said: “We have experts with specialist technology and forensic scientists working with us to try and find Sarah.
“We are particularly interested to hear from anyone with fixed CCTV cameras within a five mile radius of New Ash Green, whether this is residential or commercial CCTV to come forward.
“Likewise, anyone who was out on the evening of the 9 October to the morning of 10 October in that five mile area who has dashcam in their vehicle, please contact us.
“We are also appealing to those living and working in the area bordered by the A2, M25, Meopham, Cobham, Horton Kirby and Darenth to check their sheds, outbuildings and areas of rough ground or woodland for any sign of Sarah.”
Sarah and Nerf gun enthusiast Ben split up following the birth of the twins but six months ago she moved back in with the cabbie.
Sarah, who also has two older sons — Lewis Burdett, 22, and Jack, 21 — still worked in Portsmouth and is said to have spent time in Surrey, where colleagues believe she had found a new man through online dating.

Mr Prus told The Sun earlier this week: “She is always in different locations. She is a very busy woman.
“I know she had been travelling between Portsmouth, Kent and somewhere near Guildford in Surrey.
“We know she was connected to at least three areas.
“In Portsmouth she was with her eldest sons, and when in Kent she was with her ex-partner.
“They were sharing the children, that’s what I know.”

Mr Prus added that Sarah, thought to have been married three times, worked at the salon full-time for around two years before going part-time when she moved back to Kent.
She is also believed to own a home in Portsmouth which she rents out.
Police have spent several days searching her home as well as trawling through social media and dating sites for clues.
Officers have also used drones and dogs to search an area of woods they have cordoned off near her and Ben’s £265,000 terraced home.
Over the weekend, police also searched land and fields by a nearby private hospital and pub, and woodland in Ridley, about two miles away from where she lived.
Sarah’s oldest son Lewis has put out several appeals on social media, which have been shared thousands of times.
He described his mum’s disappearance as completely out of character, saying that she was “happy, with no problems”.
