Chilling 911 calls by Orlando Pulse nightclub gunman Omar Mateen revealed for first time 

Evening Standard
Chilling 911 calls from Pulse nightclub gunman Omar Mateen recorded after he killed 49 people have been released for the first time. An audio recording of his police call captured the killer saying: "I want to let you know, I'm in Orlando, and I did the shooting." That call, made from the gay club where the mass shooting took place, was one of four released by the City of Orlando yesterday after appeals by American media companies. During the tapes, published by the New York Times, he tells police: "You are speaking with a person who pledged his allegiance to the Islamic State of Abu Bakr al-Bahdadi and Allah." Mateen, who was killed during a police shootout after his June 12 rampage, goes on: "You have to tell America to stop bombing Syria and Iraq. Police on the scene of the shooting (Twitter/@OrlandoPolice) "They're killing a lot of innocent people, so what am I to do here when my people are getting killed over there?" He later threatens police, saying: "By the way, there is some vehicles outside that have some bombs just to let you know. "Your people are going to get it and I'm going to ignite it if they try to do anything stupid." Circuit Judge Margaret Schreiber is set to decide on whether 232 other calls made during the shooting should be released to the public, with some victims' families warning it may be too traumatic.... read more

Virgin East Coast driver's miraculously escape from oncoming 105mph train 

Evening Standard
A train driver was just three seconds from being hit by another service travelling at 105mph when he managed to dive for cover, a report says. The Virgin Trains East Coast driver was forced to lie down close to his train after going on to the track to investigate a power failure and seeing the oncoming vehicle. He escaped unhurt in the incident, which happened at Kyle Beck near Tollerton, North Yorkshire, shortly after 2pm on August 3, while he was driving the 7.55am Inverness to London King's Cross service. His dramatic escape was captured on CCTV by the other train. A report by the Rail Accident Investigation Branch (RAIB) published this week said he had contacted the signaller to request that trains on adjacent lines should be stopped to allow him to safely inspect his train. The signaller, who was a trainee, told the driver he would call him back, but this message was either misunderstood or not heard. The report said: "The driver and the trainee signaller did not reach a clear understanding about stopping trains on the adjacent lines, and the driver subsequently alighted from the driving cab of his train, incorrectly believing it was safe to do so." He returned to his cab without incident but, shortly after leaving it for a second time to carry out a further inspection, he became aware of the oncoming train, possibly after its warning horn was sounded. The report said he lay down close to his train "with three seconds to spare". The RAIB concluded that the incident demonstrated the importance of signallers and drivers repeating messages back to each other and drivers remaining in their cab until they have received "positive confirmation" that adjacent lines have been blocked.... read more
