A man who was "prepared to inflict violence on others if you are crossed” has been convicted of the manslaughter of a homeless Basildon dad. Lloyd Deacon, 27, from Dedham, was jailed for nine years today at Chelmsford Crown Court. Gary Bassett died after suffering a fatal head injury following an assault in a service area behind Primark and Debenhams at 7pm on Friday, July 28. Deacon was subsequently arrested and later charged with the murder of Mr Bassett.
A friend of John Pordage who witnessed the fatal shooting in Great Baddow told police at the scene that "it was meant for me," a court heard. Mr Pordage, 34, was gunned down outside the BP garage in Baddow Road, at around 2am on August 5 last year. The electrician from Galleywood died shortly afterwards having suffered a gunshot wound to his chest. Two teenage boys are currently on trial at Chelmsford Crown Court in connection with Mr Pordage's death.
A cashier who served John Pordage just before he was fatally shot heard a shout "like a scream" while he was fixing a tap in the garage's kitchen, a court has heard. Two teenage boys are currently on trial at Chelmsford Crown Court in connection with the 34-year-old's death in Great Baddow on August 5 last year. Mr Pordage, from Galleywood, had driven his white Peugeot van to the BP garage in Baddow Road along with his friend Jamal Samuels, shortly before 2am.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
