Lincs Police Officer dies on Deepings bypass...

Tony Lake, Chief Constable of Lincolnshire Police has released the following statement:

"It is with deep regret that I have to announce the death of Constable Stacey Victoria Pyke, based at Spalding Police Station. At about 7.15 on Monday morning Stacey was on her way home after night duty and was killed in a car crash on the A15 Deepings by-pass.

Stacey, aged 20, joined Lincolnshire Police in August 2006. She was driving her black Renault Megane when it was in collision with a blue Citroen Xsara Picasso. The two occupants of the Citroen were taken to Peterborough and District hospital, their injuries are not thought to be life threatening.

At this stage I am unable to provide much more information but clearly our thoughts must be with Stacey and her family and we will ensure that all the help that we can provide is available, not just in the next few days, but in the longer term."

Sergeant Peter Leng, of Bourne, was a member of Staceys training team, he said, "She was a very bubbly and popular officer. Very enthusiastic and conscientious. It was her dream to join the police service and she couldn't believe that her dream had come true."

Hi Phil,

I met you at Labour Student event last year:

Can I see your advise on a matter relating to the local media. In my year the local paper is on the same lines as the Daily Mail, so its difficult for me to get good news stories into the paper.

do you have any advise how I can overcome this?
