And finally… well-heeled

Dozens of pairs of designer trainers seized from a convicted gangster are set to be auctioned to raise money for fighting crime.

A total of 55 pairs of trainers, together worth almost £20,000, were seized from Isaiah Hanson-Frost, 22, after his arrest.

He is currently serving a six-year jail term for shooting a car of rival gang members in Gloucester last November.

The designer trainers will now be auctioned under the Police Property Act.

Detective Inspector Dave Shore-Nye of Gloucestershire Constabulary said: “We often see the reason for someone to commit crime is down to their own personal greed and to make money.

“We are keen to put a stop to anyone who is living a lavish lifestyle which has been funded through crime and this shows the level Gloucestershire Constabulary will go to in order to strip a criminal of their assets and then put the money to good use.”
