“Outrageous” housing plans rejected, passengers stranded…& ban for man who knelt down to reveal penis


A 59-YEAR-OLD man who exposed his genitals to two women near Salisbury Cathedral has been banned from the Close — except when he attends a monthly writing club. According to the prosecution, Andrew Poulton of Rogers Close, Quidhampton, “knelt down, took his shorts down, revealing his bare backside leaning forward on all fours. They could clearly see his penis.” (Salisbury Journal)

PLANS for an “outrageous” housing estate in Melksham have been thrown out by Wiltshire Council. The scheme, submitted by Gladman Developments Ltd and Nicholas Keen, would have seen farm buildings demolished to make way for 263 houses with access, open space and landscaping built off Shurnhold. But councillors at the strategic planning committee unanimously objected to the idea. (Wiltshire Times)

THE Prospect Hospice has echoed calls for fairer funding for palliative care after the release of a report which says funding remains “patchy”. The joint Hospice UK and Together for Short Lives document says charitable hospices in England care for 360,000 patients and family members each year, potentially saving the NHS and social care millions of pounds every year.
