Moves to find suspect.

Home Secretary John Reid confirmed yesterday that diplomatic efforts have begun to secure the return of a man suspected of killing PC Sharon Beshenivsky.

Suspect Mustaf Jamma was thought to have returned to his native Somalia after mother-of-three Ms Beshenivsky was shot dead in November.

Last week, Mr Reid told the Police Federation conference in Bournemouth that he would do everything legally possible to bring Jamma back to face police inquiries.

Horse starved

A WOMAN let her pregnant horse starve to death despite having 1,000 bales of hay in the next field, a court heard yesterday.

Delia Stacey, a horse transport firm boss from Tidmarsh, West Berks, admitted causing unnecessary suffering to three horses.

Magistrates in Guildford, Surrey, imposed a one-month jail term, suspended for 12 months, and ordered her to do 120 hours' community service.

Birth tragedy

THE family of a mother-of-two who died after giving birth to her dead baby has won pounds 300,000 in an out-of-court settlement with an NHS trust.

But grieving relatives have hit out at Swansea NHS Trust bosses for taking five years to admit liability for the death.

Diane Price, 24, of Port Talbot, south Wales, was rushed to hospital after being found collapsed in a pool of blood at home in July 2001.

Within 30 minutes of arriving at Singleton Hospital, Swansea, the eight-and-a-half-months pregnant mother was told her baby was dead.

At that point she opted to continue with a natural birth, backed by doctors, even though she had lost so much blood that she needed a transfusion.

Hours later she was taken to theatre after collapsing and went on to lose three litres of blood, causing a fatal heart attack.

Lonely hearts

TWO young girls who have been missing for nine days may have answered lonely hearts column adverts, pretending to be older than they are, police said yesterday.

Daisy Taylor, 12, and Harpreet Bajwa, 14, were last seen on May 14 at around 8pm in Sandwich Road, Whitfield, near Dover, Kent.

Officers believe they have travelled to the London area.

A Kent Police spokesman said: "They might have been contacting men through lonely hearts columns."
