Woman dies in hospital after plunging from window at block of flats in Irvine. | UK News

A woman has died after plunging from a window at a block of flats in North Ayrshire.

Emergency crews were alerted to the fall in Warrix Avenue, Irvine, at around 12.55pm on Thursday.

Police Scotland said the woman’s next of kin have been made aware and a report will be sent to the Procurator Fiscal.

Polestar 4: First car without a rear window to make its way on to British roads | UK News

The first car without a rear window is set to make its way on to British roads.

The Swedish-made Polestar 4 will be fitted with a high-definition screen that shows a real-time feed from a roof-mounted rear camera instead of a rear-view mirror.

The car manufacturer, which is owned by Volvo, has taken the back window out completely to give more headroom and replaced it with a camera.

It said it would give motorists a “unique experience” and a better view of the road behind them.

Motoring journalist Quentin Willson told Sky News: “Rear windows on cars have been getting smaller and smaller, and as more consumers want more voluptuous shapes… you have a problem, because the window gets smaller and smaller and you have to have more headroom.

“So Volvo have done a really clever thing and got rid of the rear window completely and given us this new rear window on the world.

“The car has been out in China since December and there have been no discouraging words.

“The argument is, I think, it actually gives you a better view because the camera is high definition, it’s a wider arc, and you see more than you would than through that grimy rear window.”

It isn’t without precedent. Many vans don’t have rear-view windows, and many trucks are now using cameras instead of wing mirrors.

“We see so many cars on the roads with obscured windows because the car’s full of stuff and you get one passenger in the middle, it’s hard to see out,” said Willson.

“So it’s not something we should howl in terror that we’ve lost.

“It’s just the stylistic evolutionary process of the motor car.”

He added: “It’s bold, it’s challenging – that’s what we need in car design.

“We’ve been through a stage where everything was homogeneous and boring, and this is actually very revolutionary, so let’s welcome it rather than decry it.”

The starting price of the Polestar 4 will be £59,990 and it is expected to go on sale in the UK from August.

Maximilian Missoni, head of design at Polestar, said: “With Polestar Precept we previewed a stunning new occupant experience by removing the rear window and pushing the rear header, which plays an integral safety role, further back. This means that now, rear occupants can have a unique experience in our SUV coupe.”

Safestyle: Around 680 workers made redundant after window and door seller falls into administration | Business News

Around 680 staff have been made redundant at window and door seller Safestyle.

The business had gone into administration and the GMB union had expected up to 600 job losses.

But on Monday, administrators Interpath Advisory were appointed and said the number was around 680 workers.

Staff were unexpectedly texted to “down tools” on Friday evening at the Bradford, Yorkshire headquartered company.

Before the weekend, on Friday, the Safestyle board filed a notice of intention to appoint administrators and said the company could not continue trading as a going concern.

Trading in company shares on Friday morning was temporarily suspended, “pending clarification of the company’s financial position”, a regulatory notice said.

Additional funds had been sought but on Thursday the company said it did not expect to be in receipt of capital or new financing.

Police believe missing dog walker Nicola Bulley fell into river – investigation focuses on 10-minute window | UK News

Police say they believe Nicola Bulley “sadly” fell into a river as they focus on a 10-minute window from 9.10am to 9.20am when the dog walker went missing last Friday.

The 45-year-old was last seen on 27 January at about 9.10am on a path by the River Wyre in the Lancashire village of St Michael’s on Wyre.

Her phone was found on a bench still connected to a work call, while her springer spaniel dog was running loose.

Live updates from the police news conference

A search is continuing, with Ms Bulley’s friends retracing her route earlier on Friday – marking a week from her disappearance.

Her partner, Paul Ansell, has said he will “never lose hope”.

He also said he kept playing “every scenario” in his head “around and around” and that his focus was on supporting their two young daughters.

Mr Ansell said: “I don’t know how I am coping. I don’t want to think about that. I am just focused on the girls.”

He went on: “We’re never, ever going to lose hope, of course we’re not, but it is as though she has vanished into thin air.”

Ms Bulley, a mortgage adviser, had dropped her daughters, aged six and nine, at school shortly before she vanished.
