In the last post I described the basic facts concerning the unsolved murder of Nottingham pub landlord George Wilson in September The newspapers I believe can shed some light on matters. Those who did live during that era would doubtless find this a short-sighted view. Crime in the s was not dissimilar to crime now. I mention this to contextualise the stabbing of George Wilson. In the s, Britain had become home to the Sabini family, who loansharked to punters with bad gambling debts and protected illegal Jewish bookies carrying huge sums of cash at race courses at Epson, Brighton and Lewes.
There were rumours that the police struck a deal with them, too, to protect the courses from incursions by other firms. When I started looking at newspaper reports about the Pretty Windows murder, I felt closer to the crime than when reading modern accounts. I suppose they reflected how the story gradually unfolded to Nottingham residents at the time.
They may be largely groundless, and stem from the natural human desire for intrigue. Fiction has to make sense. Sudden, spontaneous fatal attacks are carried-out by panicked and enraged individuals all over the world every day. Below are my thoughts and speculation on what may have happened to George Wilson, given the fragmented details we know. Some and maybe all will be utter rubbish, and others are contradictory of each other.

She didn’t let him finish his proposal before saying yes.

The year-old Markle was born and raised in California. The prince said he tried to warn Markle what she was getting into. She said she thought she understood. It’s not easy for anybody. The couple were poised but natural. They finished each other’s sentences — in a good way. It was the first time they have spoken as a couple, the first venture into this new role of a royal pair.
They addressed tabloid culture, race, the legacy of Princess Diana, the ring, meeting the queen and her corgis, and Markle being a foreigner. Markle was assertive but gushed a little.

Mr Dawes was named by Dutch prosecutors in court for allegedly ordering the murder of schoolteacher Gerard Meesters, who was apparently gunned down because his sister and her friend were believed to have stolen a shipment of drugs. Mr Dawes was never formally charged or arrested in connection with the incident. Daniel Sowerby, a British citizen who has admitted that he worked for Mr Dawes, is serving a life sentence for killing Meesters but he refused to say in court who had ordered the murder.
After moving from the Nottingham area to the Costa del Sol in , Mr Dawes attracted the interest of Spanish crime investigators, who began to track the man they suspected of heading up a drug trafficking ring responsible for importing large quantities of cocaine, heroin and hashish. The Spanish authorities later said that through targeting Mr Dawes they had been able to seize kg of cocaine, kg of heroin and 5.
In April , Mr Dawes was extradited from Dubai to Spain only to be released in September in an embarrassing case of apparent poor coordination between Spanish and British authorities. The Guardian reported at the time that the reason Mr Dawes was released was due to a delay by the British authorities in providing evidence against the suspect.

Early beginnings[ edit ] Nottingham’s first station was Carrington Street station , which opened in May , when the Midland Counties Railway opened the line from Nottingham to Derby. This terminus station was situated on the opposite side of Carrington Street to the current station, on a site now occupied by Nottingham Magistrates’ Court. The original station gate posts still exist and form the pedestrian entrance to the Magistrates’ Courts area.
By , the new company had outgrown Carrington Street station and new lines to Lincoln had been opened. A new through station was opened on the current station site on 22 May , replacing the Carrington Street station. In the Midland Railway purchased the West Croft Canal arm, filling it and building additional parallel tracks to south. Although attractive when it first opened, by the early s the station was cramped, with only three platforms.
On 18 September a light engine, running tender first, was passing through the station when it came into collision with six empty fish trucks. Six people on the platform were injured. Lambert had been the architect for the Nottingham Victoria railway station and consequently the two buildings shared many similarities in their design. The station was re-built largely on the same site as the Station Street station, but the entrance was relocated onto Carrington Street.
The building used a mix of red brick, terracotta which was used as a substitute for building stone and faience a glazed terracotta with slate and glazed pitch roofs over the principal buildings.
