If Preston North End midfielder Daniel Johnson wasn’t a professional footballer he would instead be playing basketball. That is what the prolific goal scorer recently revealed - much to the delight of Preston Pride Community Basketball Club.The club, which has been promoting the development of basketball for people of all ages in Preston for more than 15 years, was thrilled to welcome Daniel to its Herschell Street base. There, during a training session, the former Aston Villa player got to grips with dribbling a ball with his hands and tested his prowess with moves such as banana cuts and floaters. Passing the ball with his hands, not his feet, was a surprisingly comfortable switch for the great basketball fan. The Lilywhites signed Jamaican-born Daniel, 24, in 2015 and he went on to become their top goal scorer. From his early years at Crystal Palace, Daniel has exhibited a true zest for football which has been matched by his talent. Shaun Hoyle, one of the coaches at Preston Pride Community Basket Ball Club, said:“It was a real honour to welcome Daniel to one of our training sessions. It was a great opportunity for us to promote the positive way in which basketball is developing locally as a sport. “Daniel is a keen basketball fan - and, of course, a great player.We’d have him in one of our teams any time.” Football scouts spotted Daniel Johnson’s potential when he was still at school. He played for Crystal Palace before joining the Aston Villa Academy. His first professional contract followed and he played at all team levels for Villa, coming to prominence in youth and reserve teams. Daniel made his Football League debut while on loan to Yeovil Town. He went on to join Chesterfield on a three-month loan.After a subsequent two-month stint at Oldham, he was signed to Preston North End for an undisclosed fee. If anyone would like to follow in Daniel’s footsteps and try out basketball in Preston, they can find out more about Preston Pride Community Basketball Cub on Facebook at: prestonpridebasketballclub/ For further information about Daniel’s visit, contact Tracey Bush on Clean-up operation underway following major Blackburn fire Following the large fire at the former V10 Polymer plastics mill in Blackburn, a clean-up operation has been launched.

The Council, Police and Fire Service have asked the local community to remain vigilant.The site remains hazardous and unsafe and people are being urged to stay away from the site. As a result of the fire a small amount of asbestos cement board has spread into the area. Public Health and Environmental Protection experts have advised that risks to health remain low and there is unlikely to be any adverse exposure to asbestos following fires involving asbestos cement sheeting. However it is important any material is removed as a sensible precaution and as part of the wider clean-up of the site following the incident. Officers along with fire officers and Environmental Protection colleagues have been keeping residents and local businesses up-todate, with further visits taking place today to give people information on the next steps. Letters and a frequently asked questions fact sheet are also being hand-delivered to local residents and businesses. Fire officers and Environment Agency officers are also carrying out a door-knock in the area to keep people updated on the works being carried out. The Council is working with Lancashire Fire and Rescue to support their investigation. At the height of the blaze, over 70 firefighters were at the scene to tackle the fire. Specialist works are also underway to breakup the plastic piles and make the site less hazardous. An investigation has been launched by Lancashire Fire and Rescue to establish the cause. Cllr Jim Smith, Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council’s Executive Member for Environment, said: I would like to reassure residents that this We would urge the community to report any anti-social behavior or suspicious activity to the Police on 101 or the Fire Service on Council has been in constant contact with Fire 01772 862545. and Rescue Service colleagues and partner agencies, such as the Environment Agency and Public Health England in terms of the need to monitor the situation carefully and provide The Council’s Environmental Protection Team also are available to answer any questions or queries regarding the clean-up operation on: (01254) 267699 ‘Premier Market’ for Clitheroe Moves a Step Closer ‘A premier market for a premier “We are a positive can-do council working town’ – that’s the message from in the interests of the whole community Ribble Valley Borough Council. and our policy and finance committee has The council’s policy and finance committee has set up a steering group led by council leader Ken Hind to take the proposed £9million redevelopment of Clitheroe Market forward.
