Turning Back the Pages

AN occasional fault with Henley’s intelligent traffic system may be the cause of some of the Reading Road tailbacks experienced since the scheme went live in November. Engineers from Siemens and BT, who installed the scheme, are still trying to identify what causes the problem, although Oxfordshire County Council is hoping it might now be fixed. It is believed traffic coming from Hart Street into the town centre is being given a longer green light, which cuts the time on green for Reading Road traffic.

A female student who was attacked in the Greys Road car park toilets in Henley has hit out after the assailants were sentenced. Helena Sorensen, of Greys Road, was hit with stiletto heels, punched, kicked and bitten by four girls following a night at Club Unique in February last year. Her friend Eleanor Cox was also targeted in an attack that both girls claim left them terrified and shaken. Speaking after the culprits were given binding over orders at Oxford Crown Court this week, Miss Sorensen claimed they had been let off lightly.

A Henley doctor at the forefront of the fight to save Townlands Hospital is retiring. Dr Peter Ashby, 63, who has been a GP at the Bell Surgery since 1975, will retire on April 1.
