The home of the president of the Used Car Dealers Association, Visham Babwah, has been broken into.

Babwah told CNC3 News that the burglars entered his Chaguanas home by cutting out a small portion of the burglar-proofing at the back door.

Gov't opens bridge linking Covigne and Spaniol Roads in Diego Martin

The Ministry of Rural Development and Local Government has officially opened a new bridge that links Covigne and Spaniol Roads in Diego Martin.

Prime Minister and Member of Parliament for Diego Martin West Dr Keith Rowley hailed the new bridge as value for money because he said it went out for competitive bids.

“As we improve things one by one, we improve the community. I know many residents who are happy to have this bridge. It may look like a small project, but in this current situation for the country, a project at this cost is not a small project.”
