LOCAL UPDATE: 79% of those aged 65-69 in West Midlands have had vaccine & man jailed for life for killing baby girl
It has been confirmed by heath chiefs that 79% of those between the ages of 65 and 69 in the West Midlands have now had their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine.
This means they are now able to offer it to those under sixty five ahead of schedule. Sally Roberts, senior officer for the vaccination programme at Black Country and West Birmingham CCGs, said: “If you are 65 and over – or if you are under 65 and clinically vulnerable or a frontline health and social care worker - and you haven’t booked yet, please make this week the week that you book for your potentially life-saving vaccine by calling 119 or visiting the national booking service website.”
Next, a 43 year-old man has been found guilty of murdering his five month old baby girl. After a lengthy trial at Birmingham Crown Court, Philip Peace of Himley Road in Dudley was found to have intentionally shaken his daughter causing her fatal injuries. He was sentenced to life in prison on Friday.
Finally, a homeless man who killed a fellow rough sleeper after a jealous fit of rage has been jailed for six years. 35 year-old Ashley Pace was found guilty of manslaughter at Wolverhampton Crown Court after beating Jagdev Lally near Tollgate shopping centre in Smethwick on the fourteenth of April last year. The incident happened when Mr Lally laid down with some bedding next to a woman that Pace was in a relationship with.
