Sunday Sunrise – 28th October 2012 … Nearly November! (but cold enough!)

Snapshot of stories

Formula 1 organisers in India say they are determined to ensure that the track near Delhi is completely “dog proof” ahead of Sunday’s race.  Canine entry points to the state-of-the-art Buddh International Circuit have been blocked ahead of the race.  Last year stray dogs roaming free on the circuit during the first practice session caused some embarrassment.  However, plans to install ultrasonic devices to keep dogs away from the track have been dropped.  Officials from the circuit say that they have drawn up a plan of action to prevent stray dogs from appearing on the track following difficulties created by the animals last year.  When the racing starts, it is hoped only cars will be on the circuit, “We detected between six to seven entry points through which dogs or other stray animals were able to intrude on the circuit,” Askari Zaidi told the BBC.  “These points have been completely sealed off, while fencing around the circuit has now got two layers. In addition there will be a few teams of dog catchers around the circuit.”  Officials say that the problems caused by stray dogs last year were exacerbated by the fact that there was a lot of construction work going on.  So while it is no doubt true that “every dog has its day”, officials are confident that day will not be Sunday.

Former pop star Gary Glitter has been arrested on suspicion of sex offences by police investigating Jimmy Savile abuse claims.  Glitter, whose real name is Paul Gadd, has previously been jailed in Vietnam for child sex offences.  He has been taken from his home into custody at a London police station.  Police are investigating allegations that the late TV presenter Savile sexually abused some 300 young people over a 40-year period.  Met Police confirmed that officers from Operation Yewtree had “arrested a man in his 60s in connection with the investigation”.  Scotland Yard has said it is following about 400 lines of inquiry as part of the operation – which is looking into claims Savile, who died last year aged 84, abused hundreds of young girls and some boys.  Police described former BBC DJ Savile as a “predatory sex offender”.
