british satellites are inherently vulnerable to attack former space chief warns

UK satellites are ‘inherently vulnerable’ to attack, Britain’s former space chief warned last night.

Sir Chris Deverell called for a legally-binding multilateral treaty on space weapons.

His comments came after Britain and America criticised Russia for launching a missile-like projectile from one of its satellites. 

Speaking about the launch, General Deverell, who was head of UK Joint Forces Command until last year, said: ‘Space is a global common good, vital to mankind’s future.

‘The weaponisation of space is bad news for everyone except arms manufacturers.

‘Russia is not alone in developing this kind of capability: any nation with a space launch capability and a satellite industry could do likewise.

‘Large objects at fixed positions in space are inherently vulnerable to attack.

‘The UK should unilaterally commit to non-interference with space-based systems and seek a legally-binding multilateral treaty.’ 

Moscow fired the weapon from its Cosmos 2543 satellite last week.

Yesterday it dismissed the idea that it tested a weapon in space and said Washington was planning to deploy weapons in orbit.

Coronavirus Melbourne: 20k vow to scream against restrictions

coronavirus melbourne 20k vow to scream against restrictions

Frustrated Melburnians have vowed to stand on their front porches and unite in a chorus of collective screams as a bizarre way to deal with lockdown restrictions.

Residents of the nation’s coronavirus capital pledged to figuratively stand together and unleash a communal scream at 7pm on Friday as a way of venting pent-up rage while the city endures its second week of stage four restrictions.

It draws on the success of last Friday’s event called ‘stand on your front porch and scream’ which attracted a 24,000-strong group of Facebook users who marked themselves as ‘attending’ on the social media event page.

Organiser Tess Roberts created the movement as a lighthearted way for isolated residents to deal with the horrors of the pandemic.

‘Covid’s s**t. Everyone’s a bit sad. Just stand on your porch and scream until you feel a bit better. Let’s all unite in our shared depression,’ she wrote in the description.

Enthusiastic wailers joined forces in a cacophony of high-pitched shrieks, with many uploading videos of their efforts.

One social media user captured chilling footage of the night sky punctuated by the howls of defeated Australians.

‘I could hear screaming for blocks,’ he wrote on Twitter.

‘Joining in was pretty cathartic too. After a few minutes, but for the sound of rain drops, life returned to eerie silence.’

The movement prompted music legend Jimmy Barnes to released vocal tips for keen screamers.

‘I start off a little bit low and then I get higher as I go,’ he explained.

‘I find having a good scream really lets out a bit of tension, so it’s a good thing to do.’

Participants of last week’s event shared their experiences of shouting into the ether.

‘My throat hurts but my heart is happy,’ one woman commented.

‘I just yelled out and in the faint distance heard a couple more voices,’ another said.

Not all screechers were from metropolitan Melbourne, with one woman from Dandenong on the city’s outer limits joining the movement.

‘I did it. I screamed so loud people’s lights started coming on, I could hear doors opening, I ran back into my house and I just laughed my head off. I felt so good, I felt free, I could hear a couple of other people down the road … I think I’ve scared them.’

But not everyone was aware of the event and took to social media to ask others.

‘Does anyone else hear a tonne of screaming?’ they asked.

‘Weird…also it’s not in my head, it’s definitely in Brunswick East.’

The second ‘stand on your front porch and scream’ event will take place at the same time this Friday, and has been organised by Sean Icon McVeigh.

The 35-year-old hopes to continue the event each week.

‘Since the last event was a success, I thought, ‘Why not keep it going every Friday night at 7pm at least until the lockdown is over?’ he told news.com.au.

‘Just for fun and to get some of that frustration out because of this stupid COVID. It’s simple, all you have to do is go outside and scream and let it all out.’

The stage four restrictions were initially put in place for six weeks and are expected to be lifted in mid-September if the succeeded in getting daily case numbers back toward double figures. 

Virus fatalities on Thursday brought the state’s death toll to 275 and the national figure to 360.

Premier Andrews was confident Victoria’s second-wave COVID-19 curve was flattening but said that was dependent upon ‘literally hundreds of millions of individual choices and decisions’. 

While noting Victoria’s seven-day case average was falling, Mr Andrews acknowledged Stage 4’s effects would not be known until next week.

Identity of Lindsay Birbeck’s teenage killer, 17, revealed

identity of lindsay birbecks teenage killer 17 revealed

The teenager who murdered teaching assistant Lindsay Birbeck has been unmasked as a traveller named after boxing sensation Rocky Marciano. 

The 17-year-old strangled the 47-year-old mother-of-two, who was found wrapped in two plastic bags at the back of a cemetery in August 24 last year.

The discovery of her body, by a dog walker, was made 12 days after she went missing from her home in Accrington, Lancs.

A post-mortem found the mother-of-two, who had left her home for a walk when she went missing, had died as a result of compression of the neck.

Rocky Marciano Price previously could not be named for legal reasons as he is under the age of 18 granting him automatic anonymity under UK law. Price, of Accrington, was found guilty by a jury at Preston Crown Court on Wednesday.

Reporters in court today challenged the restriction due to the severity of the crime and Justice Yip has now lifted the order. She said: ‘The murder was a truly shocking event. This was a dreadful crime which generated strong public interest.

‘The public naturally wish to know who this person was as they come to terms with something that rocked the local community.

‘The defendant’s photograph was already placed in the public domain [as part of a CCTV appeal]. I consider it inconceivable anybody who would wish him ill-harm would not discovery his identity.

‘The wider public are likely to want to know his identity and background with a view to making sense of how such a young person could do something so dreadful.

‘There is a strong public interest in full and unrestricted reporting of what is plainly an exceptional case. The real public interest exists now at the time of conviction and sentence.

‘Continuing reporting restrictions would substantially and considerably restrict the freedom of the press.’ 

Prior to her murder, Mrs Birbeck had left her home in for a late afternoon walk to a nearby wooded area known as the Coppice. Pictured: The last CCTV sighting of Ms Birbeck before she was murdered

The teenager – named after unbeaten heavyweight champion Rocky Marciano – is from Accrington and lives not far away from the cemetery where Lindsay Birbeck was found.

The 17-year-old’s is understood to be living with his parents, Martina and Creddy Price, who were in court for every day that their son had to attend along with other relatives, as reported by the Lancashire Telegraph.

Who is Rocky Marciano?

The 17-year-old murderer was named after boxing champion Rocky Marciano who is considered one of the greatest fighters of all time.

Mr Marciano was born and grew up in Boston, Massachusetts, and had an underwhelming amateur record of 8-4.

But a is the case for many fighters he excelled in the professional ranks after winning his first fight in 1948.

His most famous victory was against Joe Walcott in 1952 where he became world champion. He was known for his fearsome power and ability to knock opponents out.

Marciano went on to accrue an impressive record of 49 wins, with 43 of them coming by knock out. 

He is considered by boxing historians to be one of the greatest heavyweight boxers of all time, and debate rages to this day on if he would have beaten the great Muhammed Ali.

The defence had opposed the application to name Price due to his vulnerabilities. The court heard that Price has already been subject to two ‘attacks’ while on remand at HMP Wetherby.

Barrister Mark Stuart said: ‘Rocky Price’s difficulties are particularly with verbal or the lack of verbal communication and the difficulties he will have within a prison setting.

‘He is about to face now a significant custodial sentence. Not only is it a life sentence but a significant amount of time before his position could be considered by a parole board.

‘He is in a young offenders institute and is a category A prisoner. While some inmates may have some inkling what the position is, the concern is if he is named there is a significant prospect others would find out his name and that could cause him some difficulties.

‘There is certainly a potential that those in custody may feel a degree of revulsion about what he has done and may even verbally or physically abuse him.

‘It maybe difficult for him to respond and report it to the appropriate authorities.

‘The effect of revealing his name will also have an effect on various members of his family.’ 

Jury members had previously heard how the teenager, who was 16 at the time, had killed Mrs Birbeck in a woodland before moving her body to Accrington Cemetery in a wheelie bin. 

He attended a police station several days after Mrs Birbeck was found, when police released a CCTV clip of a young male pulling a blue wheelie bin behind him on Burnley Road. 

He went on to admit dragging the bin from the Coppice on August 17 – with Mrs Birbeck inside – across Burnley Road to the cemetery where he buried her.

Teaching assistant Lindsay Birbeck, 47, was found dead at Accrington Cemetery on the outskirts of the Lancashire town in August last year 

Prior to her murder, Mrs Birbeck had left her home in for a late afternoon walk to a nearby wooded area known as the Coppice.

She had invited her teenage daughter, Sarah, and Sarah’s boyfriend over for tea at 6pm.

But when she did not return from her walk, her worried family raised the alarm.

The court heard her attacker had been on the prowl in the woods for lone females and is thought to have killed Mrs Birbeck shortly after she entered the Coppice.

Shortly before Mrs Birbeck entered the Coppice, another woman said she feared for her safety when a lone male wearing a grey tracksuit and his hood up followed her on her walk.  

On Wednesday, a jury at Preston Crown Court convicted the youngster guilty of murder after deliberating for more than four hours.

Mrs Birbeck’s grieving husband, Tim Birbeck, said that his wife’s death has ‘broken’ him 

The verdict was returned exactly a year after the murder of Mrs Birbeck, who had split up from her husband and moved to a new home in March last year after she started a new relationship.

The teenager had previously pleaded guilty to assisting in the disposal of her body but claimed he played no role in her death.

He said he was offered ‘a lot of money’ by a mystery man to ‘get rid of the body’.  

He stated: ‘I have not met this man before. I have not met him since, nor have I had any contact with him. He has not paid me any money.

‘He told me that he would leave the money for me near where the body had been at first once everything was clear.’

The Crown Prosecution Service did not accept his version of events and said the defendant’s account was ‘implausible fiction’.

Mrs Birbeck’s grieving husband, Tim Birbeck, previously said that his wife’s death has ‘broken’ him.    

And of the couple’s two children, Steven Birbeck, 19, said the person who killed his mother had robbed her of the chance to become a grandmother. 

Responding to posts on Facebook, Mr Birbeck, who is chairman of nearby Hapton Parish Council, told a friend he was ‘broken mate, it certainly hurt’. 

Hundreds of people had gathered at The Coppice in Accrington to search for Mrs Birbeck

He also praised police for the ‘speedy arrest and the way you have been with my family’, but added: ‘It is horrendous watching our children go through this.’ 

Steven said: ‘I’ve always cherished the thought of seeing my mum smile.

‘The fact that she will never see me and my sister grow up and not going to be there on our wedding days and never see her grandchildren deeply saddens us. All taken by some selfish person who deserves what comes around.’

The discovery of the body brought to an end an extensive search. Thousands of people in the community were involved in handing out flyers and looking for her.

More than 19,000 people had joined a Facebook group to assist emergency services with the search for the worker. 

Sentencing is expected to take place on Friday.

A couple are raffling off their stunning three-bedroom house in West Sussex for £2.50 a ticket – and the winner will walk away with a £475,000 mortgage-free home.

Former professional snowboarder Jan Michaelis, a two-time Olympian and halfpipe world cup winner, and his wife Alina ‘reluctantly’ decided to put the property on the market to find somewhere bigger to accommodate their growing family and relatives from abroad.

Sea Mist Bungalow is a modern bungalow situated in a quiet cul-de-sac in the heart of the affluent village of West Wittering, where famous neighbours include Keith Richards, Nicholas Lyndhurst, Kate Winslet and Michael Ball.

The home is in walking distance of the blue flag beaches at East Head which are ranked among Britain’s most beautiful, and in a National Trust Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 

It also boasts a secluded 256 sq ft one-bedroom garden cabin complete with an en suite and its own sunny decked terrace.

Jan, 42, originally from Hamburg, Germany, told FEMAIL they decided to launch the competition to give someone the opportunity to enjoy a ‘dream life by the beach’. 

‘We reluctantly decided to sell and find a bigger place locally that will accommodate our growing families from abroad for longer visits in the future,’ he explained. 

‘We opted for the raffle route as we see it as an opportunity to do something good whilst selling our house. We want to raise £50,000 for charities close to our heart whilst giving away our home to one lucky winner on October 30 this year.

‘And with no mortgage to pay and stamp duty and conveyancing fees covered, there really is nothing to lose!’

The competition launched last week on August 6 and Jan said it has already attracted a great deal of interest. 

He added: ‘We know a lot of people are currently looking to get on the property ladder, relocate or change their lifestyles. 

‘The surge in staycations also shows that a lot of people are not travelling abroad and are making the most of home offices and flexible working arrangements whilst spending time in beautiful places. 

‘It’s definitely been a lot of work to put this together and a steep learning curve, but we’re just really excited to be here and have launched our website successfully.’ 

Jan and Alina, who have a daughter, have lived in the property for over eight years and during this time have modernised and extended the bungalow to include the studio annex.
