Shaun Pinner: Briton released in Russia-Ukraine prisoner swap pictured with his family as all five return to UK | World News

Five Britons released from Russian detention in Ukraine after a prisoner swap have arrived back “safely” in the UK.

One of the men, Sean Pinner, has been pictured with his family after they were reunited.

“If you thought COVID highlighted the importance of family, this is even bigger,” his sister, Cassandra, told Sky News.

Aiden Aslin, John Harding, Dylan Healy and Andrew Hill have been identified by the foreign and commonwealth office as the other Britons.

“We know that all are back safely in the UK now and looking forward to normality with their families after this horrific ordeal,” Presidium Network said.

The non-profit organisation added: “Most of the families have asked for privacy while they normalise back in the UK.”

Prior to their release, four of the men featured in video clips posted online or on Russian state TV.

On their flight home, Mr Aslin and Mr Pinner recorded a message, thanking those who had worked to free them.

British POWs speak after release

“We’re now out of the danger zone and on our way home to our families,” said Mr Aslin.

“By the skin of our teeth,” Mr Pinner, who is from Bedfordshire, added.

Threatened to death by firing squad

In April, both men were captured by Russian forces who accused them of being mercenaries.

As a result, they appeared in court in the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic, a breakaway region in eastern Ukraine, and were threatened with death by firing squad.

At the time, Mr Pinner’s family stressed that he was “not a volunteer nor a mercenary, but officially serving with the Ukrainian army”.

Aiden Aslin, Shaun Pinner and Moroccan Saaudun Brahim were sentenced to death in April

In footage broadcast on Russian state TV in April, Mr Pinner said he had been fighting in the besieged port city of Mariupol for five to six weeks.

In the months before he appeared in court, he told Sky News that he was on his fourth tour of duty in Ukraine after serving in the British Army for nine years.

The 48-year-old has been living in the country since 2018 and has a Ukrainian wife.

After the news broke that the Britons would be returning to the UK, Prime Minister Liz Truss said she “hugely welcomed” the move, adding it would end “months of uncertainty and suffering for them and their families”.

Who else was released?

Almost 300 people were released in the prisoner swap, many of them from the Ukrainian Azov regiment, which gained fame for its defence of the final stronghold in Mariupol.

John Harding was among the small group of soldiers who were holed up inside the Azovstal steelworks in the southeastern city.

Ten other foreigners have been released to Saudi Arabia before they return home, including Moroccan Brahim Saadoun, Americans Alexander Drueke and Andy Huynh, a Croatian, and a Swedish national.

Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelenskyy said: “We remember all our people and try to save every Ukrainian.

“This is the meaning of Ukraine, our essence, this is what distinguishes us from the enemy.”

The exchange took place unexpectedly, coming as Russian President Vladimir Putin threatened to use nuclear weapons.

It was brokered with help from Turkey and Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who has close ties with Mr Putin.

Once again her family were around her as the Queen left Buckingham Palace for one final time.

Queen lies in state – latest updates

After her children, grandchildren and royal household staff had been able to pay their own private quiet tributes inside Buckingham Palace, this was the moment when her family passed the Queen to the nation, delivering her safely to Westminster Hall where she is now lying in state.

The loud chimes of Big Ben and the guns in Hyde Park resonating minute after minute, the solemnity reverberating through the crowds, as the Queen’s family marched in quiet contemplation.

They may be trained for this life, but their composure was still remarkable when you consider their messages this week to their beloved mama and granny.

Their own tributes worn on their chests, with medals from all of her jubilees, and brooches she had given them as gifts.

As the guard began their vigil around her coffin the only sound inside Westminster Hall was a noisy tapping every 20 minutes marking the change of those on duty.

Some who’d been queuing for 15 hours finally allowed inside the hall, beginning that endless public stream of remembrance that will last four days.

Their dedication to their Queen has already been a reassurance to the Royal Family.

As Princess Anne said in her statement, it has been humbling and uplifting for a family who need the public’s support; people who met her, others who didn’t but still felt they knew her, now in their thousands queuing to share their loss.

The streets of London were packed with thousands of mourners who turned out to watch as the Queen’s coffin was taken to Westminster Hall in a procession led by the King, his siblings and his sons.

The carriage carrying the Queen’s oak coffin left Buckingham Palace at 2.22pm.

Union flags waved above the crowds, who were packed in behind temporary barriers.

The procession was just over a mile long and took in two of London’s most famous thoroughfares, The Mall and Whitehall.

Some people could be seen wiping away tears as the Queen’s coffin made its way along the route.

A life of service until the very end, surrounded by her family in a home she loved | UK News

In the rain they gathered outside Buckingham Palace.

A journey some will have made many times before for moments of celebration, now standing together to pay their respects.

The shock at the news was compounded by the fact that we’d only seen the Queen on Tuesday, carrying out one of her most important constitutional roles as she was adamant that she would welcome her 15th Prime Minister at Balmoral.

But the statement from the palace at lunchtime on Thursday had been ominous, her family rushing to be by her side adding more concern.

The enormity of the news that came at 6.30pm, that she had died at Balmoral, will only truly sink in over the coming days.

Six moments that defined the Queen’s reign

This will now be a period where the pendulum of events will swing between mourning the death of a much loved monarch and the country welcoming a new king.

The constitutional change is immediate and immense. King Charles III has already taken on all the responsibilities of head of state, but at the same time will also be dealing with a very personal grief with the loss of his beloved mother.

Will Charles bring a different type of reign?

As we think of her family together at Balmoral, a place where they spent so many summers together, the final days for the monarch could not have been more fitting.

She didn’t have to give up on her duties, she was able to live a life of service until the very end. And most importantly her family were there, in a home she loved, secluded from the public gaze.

Chris Kaba: Family of man shot dead by police in London call for murder investigation – and question role of race | UK News

The family of a man shot dead by police have called for a murder investigation into his killing – and have questioned whether his life would have been “cut short” if he were not black.

Chris Kaba, who was due to become a father within months, died after a chase involving armed officers that ended in Streatham Hill, south London, on Monday night.

His Audi was hemmed in by two police cars in a narrow residential street before one round was fired from a police weapon.

His family said on Wednesday they were “devastated” and needed “answers and accountability” over his death.

A statement released through the charity Inquest said Mr Kapa’s family “seek a homicide investigation into his death from the outset”.

The Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) have been told of the demand of the family who “do not want any delay as has happened in other fatal shootings – otherwise we and the wider public can have no confidence that the police will be held to account”, the statement added.

The family said: “We also want the IOPC to tell us whether or not a weapon was found in any search of the vehicle that Chris was driving.

“We have not received this information even though the shooting happened almost two days ago.”

Streatham shooting: ‘He was so loved’

Mr Kapa’s family have appealed for any witnesses to the pursuit or the shooting to come forward.

“We are devastated; we need answers and we need accountability,” they said.

“We are worried that if Chris had not been black, he would have been arrested on Monday evening and not had his life cut short.”

The Metropolitan Police earlier expressed its condolences to Mr Kaba’s loved ones, saying the force understood that “the family and community want answers”.

Commander Alexis Boon said the incident was “extremely concerning” and vowed the force would co-operate with the police watchdog in its aftermath.

The officer said: “I would like to express my sincere condolences to the family and friends of the man who died and I recognise the devastating and lasting impact this tragic incident will have on them.

“I understand that this incident is extremely concerning and I would like to reassure the community that the Met is co-operating fully with the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC) as they carry out a thorough and independent investigation.”

The shooting is being investigated by the IOPC, as is standard in deaths following police contact.

Speaking at the scene on Tuesday, Kim Alleyne, whose daughter Karimah Waite was engaged to Mr Kaba, said of him: “He was so loved. He was so funny. He was super kind. Crazy. He was always happy. He’d do anything for you.

“He was a fiance, he was due to get married in five months’ time. He’s got a baby on the way that he’s never going to see.

“It’s horrible and so shocking and so sad.”

Some paying tribute at the scene said Mr Kaba was a rapper known as Madix or Mad Itch 67.

Jefferson Bosela, who was Mr Kaba’s cousin, said: “He was a good person, a good, happy guy. He didn’t deserve that. No-one deserves that.

“Nobody deserves to be shot by the police, whether they are a good person or a bad person.”

Family of Sikh priest appeal for help to find street attacker | UK News

The family of a “loving and caring” Sikh priest left with life-changing brain injuries after an attack in Manchester city centre have appealed to the public for help in catching his attacker.

The 62-year-old was left unconscious in the middle of Tib Street after the assault on Thursday 23 June 2022, and he still remains in hospital.

The force has now released CCTV footage, along with pictures of a man and woman who they believe may be able to help with the investigation.

A statement from the victim’s family said the husband and father had lived in the city for 37 years and “worked long hours every day to help his children live the life he never got to”.

But they said he had been “left for dead on the bustling streets of Manchester, a route he has walked home every day, while people watched on”.

The force has also released images of two people they hope can help with the investigation

The family added that he had had his life “tragically altered forever when a thug cowardly committed this heinous act, leaving him in a pool of blood with catastrophic permanent life-changing brain damage and walked away as if it was normal behaviour”.

They said: “We appeal to anyone who knows anything or knows the offender to come forward – it is more than two months since the incident, and we are no closer to finding them and bringing them to justice for their actions.

“Our husband/father lives in a hospital bed with life-changing injuries, not knowing what the future holds.

“Please, please act today not out of hate but to stop this happening again to someone else and tearing another family apart, as we would not wish this anguish on anyone else”.

Greater Manchester Police were called to the scene by the North West Ambulance Service shortly before 6.30pm.

After reviewing CCTV, officers saw the victim had been assaulted by an unknown male close to the junction with Hilton Street.

The offender then fled the scene on foot, turning left onto Oldham Street.

Detective Inspector Mark Astbury, of Longsight CID, said: “We took the decision to release the CCTV footage with the family’s permission, simply to show the severity and mindlessness of this attack and why we need to make sure the offender is found and faces the consequences of his appalling actions”.

Anyone with information, or who may recognise the man or woman pictured, is asked to contact Greater Manchester Police on 0161 856 6049 or report it online at www.gmp.police.uk.

Alternatively, you can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Family of Olivia Pratt-Korbel appeal for help to find out ‘who took our baby away from us’ | UK News

The family of nine-year-old Olivia Pratt-Korbel have appealed for people to “do the right thing” to help find out “who took our baby away from us”.

Olivia was shot in her home in Liverpool on Monday night and a huge murder investigation is now under way to track down her killer.

In a statement, her family praised their “unique, chatty, nosey little girl” who was “adored by everyone who knew her”.

They called on anyone with information about what happened to Olivia to come forward, saying it is not about being a “snitch” or a “grass”.

Police say officers are pursuing a “number of very positive lines of inquiry” as they hunt the gunman.

Olivia was shot dead by a masked attacker while inside her home in Kingsheath Avenue, in the Dovecot area of the city.

Two Everton FC players, along with manager Frank Lampard, have called on communities to come together.

Olivia Pratt-Korbel live updates: Police send direct message to gunman, saying ‘we will find you’

Her family said: “Liv was a unique chatty, nosey little girl who broke the mould when she was born. She loved life and all it had to offer.

“Liv loved dressing up and was very particular on how she was dressed, like any other little girl she loved doing her makeup and nails, she was nine going on 19.

“Liv was adored by everyone who knew her and would instantly make friends with anyone and everyone. She was often seen going up and down the street on her new bike she had just got for her birthday.

“Although her life was short, her personality certainly wasn’t and she lived it to the most she could, and would blow people away with her wit and kindness.

“We as a family are heartbroken and have lost a huge part of our life.

“If anyone knows anything, now is the time to speak up. It is not about being a ‘snitch’ or a ‘grass’, it is about finding out who took our baby away from us. Please do the right thing.”

Olivia murder: ‘We will find you’

The gunman involved in Olivia’s killing was chasing 35-year-old convicted burglar Joseph Nee, who ran into the terraced house to get away from the shooter.

Giving an update on the investigation into the “brutal, callous, thoughtless attack” on Thursday, Merseyside Police Detective Chief Superintendent Mark Kameen said the man had failed to hand himself in.

“My message to him remains the same: We will not rest until we find you – and we will find you,” he said.

Officers from Merseyside Police have been carrying out a series of raids targeting gun crime in the city – as tributes continue to pour in for the schoolgirl.

Everton FC player Tom Davies said tragedies like Olivia’s killing “are occurring far too often”.

He added: “Enough is enough. Our communities need to come together now more than ever.

“If you know anything about the incident, please let the authorities know. Gun and knife crime is no part of our city. So please, let’s come together to help stop this.”

Teammate Connor Coady said: “We need to show strength in our community and say, enough is enough. Whose side are you on?”

Team manager Frank Lampard added: “Keeping quiet is not an option. Enough is enough. Whose side are you on?”

He also shared online photographs and videos of Olivia, including one of her opening a Christmas present and exclaiming: “Guess what I got?”

In another clip, he got her to say phrases at the camera including “our kid”, “cheese” and “vote Labour”.

In a later social media post he wrote: “I’m stuck in a dream… heartbreaking isn’t the word for it.”

“Hearing everyone’s stories that they had with you, seeing pictures on near every post or notification, it just doesn’t feel real,” he continued.

He added that he hoped Olivia was “riding your bike high up there just like you would of always been doing”.

“I love you cuz. We won’t stop fighting ever, forever our little angel.”

Olivia went to St Margaret Mary’s Catholic Junior School in Huyton, where she was thought of as a kind-hearted, helpful and happy little girl.

Family of 87-year-old man forced to build him shelter out of football goal after 15-hour ambulance wait | UK News

The family of an 87-year-old man were forced to build a makeshift shelter around him using a football goal after he was left waiting 15 hours in the rain for an ambulance.

The great-grandfather, David, suffered serious injuries including seven broken ribs, two fractures to his pelvis and an arm wound after falling over at his home in Cornwall.

His daughter, Karen, and his son-in-law, Trevor, called 999 at 7.30pm on Monday but were left waiting for paramedics until 11.30am the following day.

Operators had told the family not to move David in case it made his injuries worse, forcing them to leave him outside overnight.

Throughout the evening, Karen and Trevor said they made four or five calls to 999, and were given several assurances that paramedics would be with them “soon”.

As it started to pour down with rain, the couple used a football goal, umbrellas and tarpaulin to create a shelter for the pensioner in an attempt to shield him from the elements.

The incident comes amid lengthy waiting times for hospital treatment in Cornwall – with patients saying they have waited outside hospital in ambulances for hours and even days.

‘It was traumatising’

“He was walking to the garage when he tripped and fell over,” said Trevor.

”We dialled 999, but an ambulance didn’t arrive for over 15 hours. We kept ringing and they would say we will be with you soon.

“My wife was a nervous wreck.

”They kept telling us not to move him, so we borrowed a football goal from next door and used a tarpaulin. It was traumatising.”

David, who lives in the small Cornish village Saint Columb Road, is now recovering at Royal Cornwall Hospital in Treliske.

A spokesperson for the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly’s integrated care system said: “Like other parts of the country, our health and care system continues to experience pressure.

”The reasons for this are complex, including high demand for primary and secondary care, mental health services and adult social care.

“Our teams continue to work together to support people who need our care and we encourage people to use the most appropriate service – including your local pharmacy, minor injury units or 111 online – to keep our emergency departments and 999 service available for people with urgent and life-threatening needs.”
