Pictured left to right at the site are: Rob Hamer (senior engineer for Pembrokeshire County Council); Tony Dinan (site supervisor for Atkins); Councillor Pat Davies and Peter Walters (site foreman for GD Harries).

PEMBROKESHIRE-BASED contractors GD Harries have been appointed to complete works on the internal link road in Fishguard after the previous contractors, Dawnus, went into administration.

Work has started again on the multi-million pound site and which is scheduled for completion this summer.

The road will be named Ffordd Yr Efail. Pembrokeshire County Council’s Elected Member for Fishguard North West Councillor Pat Davies said: “I am delighted that the road scheme now is near completion as it has encountered some problems during its construction but it is intended that it will be ready for use by early summer.

“The next phase of the scheme is to be completed by Welsh Government with the widening of the pavements in High Street and West Street.

“I sincerely hope that when this long awaited development is complete that it will promote the town and that we are ‘open for business’.”

The scheme has been designed by consulting engineers, Atkins.

Head of volunteer police sacked for gross misconduct

Published

on

DYFED-POWYS POLICE’S Head of Volunteer Police has been sacked following a disciplinary hearing.

The police said in a statement: “Following a thorough and swift investigation into two allegations made about his conduct, Dyfed-Powys Police’s Special Chief Officer Cairn Newton-Evans has this morning faced a public disciplinary hearing.

“On 28 November SCO Newton-Evans was served with a conditional caution for sexual assault and tendered his resignation from the post of Chief Officer for Dyfed-Powys Special Constabulary.

“Chief Constable Mark Collins instigated a fast track disciplinary process and a public misconduct hearing was heard on Thursday (Dec 12).

“The hearing, chaired by Mr Collins, found that gross misconduct was proven and the decision was made to dismiss SCO Newton-Evans. It was also ruled that his name be added to the College of Policing barred list, preventing him from working in law enforcement in the future.”

Chief Constable Mark Collins, told The Herald: “Cairn has given his time to Dyfed-Powys Police for many years and I am grateful for the work he has done. However, as an organisation we will always strive to uphold standards of ethical and professional behaviour and where a representative of the force has done wrong, we will investigate and utilise the powers available to us, to ensure we maintain a workforce that continues to reflect the values by which we stand.

“We will always listen to victims of crime and will act on what they tell us, conducting thorough investigations and acting upon those findings to ensure justice is delivered and is seen to be delivered.”
