UK Police to receive parking sensors for reducing the number of incidents

To reduce the amount of money spent fixing the damage to it cars caused by low-speed accidents, the force spends an average of £60,000 a year mending cars that have been damaged while being parked. Pricing for the new sensors has not been released.

Martin Whysall, South Yorkshire Police’s fleet manager, said, “Police station yards were not necessarily designed for cars and they can be tight in terms of space.”

Not only South Yorkshire Police officers have problems with parking, their colleagues in Merseyside are spending 205,403 pounds (equivalent to 246,480 euros) from April 2009 to April 2010 to repair the stricken vehicle in the parking lot.

Humberside Police buys cars with reversing sensors as standard, whereas North and West Yorkshire police already add parking sensors to the larger vehicles in their fleets.

Britain’s biggest communications company was unveiled today, promising to transform the industry and give UK consumers the best coverage, devices, service and communications experience possible.

Could this be the beginning of a future cooperation throughout the entire Europe?

The company – called Everything Everywhere™ – will run two of Britain’s most famous brands, Orange and T-Mobile, and has a customer base of 30 million people: over half of the UK adult population.

Orange and T-Mobile will continue as leading brands in the market, with each brand having its own shops, marketing campaigns, propositions and service centers. However, behind the scenes, the two brands will be run by one company, with one team and one vision to give consumers instant access to the people, places and things they want, wherever they are.

Everything Everywhere™ is the name of the company that runs Orange and T-Mobile, and the company that all 16,500 employees will work for. The company will be officially integrated on July 1.

Tom Alexander, Chief Executive of Everything Everywhere™, said: “Together, we are Britain’s biggest communications company, with over 30 million customers.

“We are on the verge of a communications revolution. Up until a few years ago, mobile was just about voice and text – not now. Multimedia phones have already started to change the way our customers access the world – for entertainment, education, information – wherever they are, whenever they want.

“That is why, through our scale and Britain’s only super-network with its unsurpassed coverage and capacity, we will be leading this revolution, giving customers instant access to everything, everywhere.

“We are Everything Everywhere – it’s our name, our vision, and our ambition – and we run two of the UK’s biggest brands Orange and T-Mobile. It’s our vision to give our customers instant access to everything everywhere, opening up a world of endless possibilities.”
