- Military building defended nation during the First and Second World Wars
- Martello tower like structure on a spit of land called ‘a first’ by auctioneers
A 168-year-old gun tower that sits in the river with the address No One, The Thames, is up for sale.
The military building defended the nation during the First and Second World Wars, from the mouth of the River Thames in Kent.
Estate agents Savills are now promoting it as a ‘a unique and peaceful position with far reaching sea and coastal views’.
The ex-army site is only accessible twice a day, at low tide via a causeway and owners and guests will have to use a boat at any other time.
Auctioneers expect the Martello tower-like building will fetch £150,000. They added the property, on a spit of land between the River Thames and River Medway, ‘is a first.’
It was the last gun tower of its kind to be built, constructed to protect the nearby military dockyards against French invasion.
Anglo-French tensions ran high in the 1850s and the nation feared a naval attack.
The tower guarded the key link between the Thames and Medway rivers, which led to Royal Navy Dockyards in Sheerness and Chatham.
However, artillery technology quickly improved and the construction became obsolete in the mid-19th century, almost immediately after it was completed.
By the end of the century it was transformed into a defence against raids by fast torpedo boats.
Decades later it was altered again – new, quick firing guns were added during World War I and World War II.
The property off the Isle of Grain, built in 1855 was decommissioned in 1956 and will go under the hammer on September 20 this year.
It is around four-and-a-half miles from the nearest train station of Swale but any potential buyer would need to spend a large amount to repair and return it to its former glory.
The new asking price is a significant drop from when it went on sale nearly three years ago for £1.9 million, having previously sold for £500,000 in 2014.
Savills Auctions Director Jeremy Lamb said the sale is rare adding: ‘There is always excitement when unusual lots come along as they have a special power to capture the imagination.
‘We’ve had water towers and military sea forts in our sales in the past, but this gun tower is a first.
‘A blank canvas with heaps of history and phenomenal sea views, not to mention its coveted No. 1 the Thames address.
‘Historically, rare lots like this have seen significant interest in our auctions.
‘Last summer the hammer came down on Bull Sand Fort in the Humber Estuary at nearly 10 times guide price after attracting bids from around the world and the year before that we auctioned a water tower in Essex which has since received permission for residential use and a chance to design a once in a life time property.’
A spokesperson described the potential buy as ‘atmospheric.’
They said: ‘The tower occupies a unique and peaceful position with far reaching sea and coastal views. The village of Grain is approximately one mile to the west.
‘The tower is atmospheric internally with a series of rooms, exposed brick work and concrete.
‘Of interest to developers and occupiers, the tower represents a unique opportunity with potential for alternative uses or development subject to the necessary consents.’
LONDON — Conservative voters are now more protectionist in their views about foreign investment than Labour or Liberal Democrat voters, according to polling seen by POLITICO.
The figures are a part of a set of polling results which show that the British public as a whole has grown wary of foreign direct investment (FDI) into Britain, particularly from China.
New polling from communications and advisory firm Hanbury Strategy revealed that the average 2019 Labour voter was 51 percent positive about a foreign firm buying a British firm, while a 2019 Conservative voter was 47 percent positive.
The average Lib Dem voter was 56 percent positive, according to the poll.
The polling also shows that 39 percent of Conservative voters think overseas companies should not own British companies, compared to 33 percent of Labour voters and 33 percent of Lib Dem voters.
Just 27 percent of Brits surveyed said they would be optimistic about foreign interests taking over a domestic company.
Sentiment was similar in the U.S., with 22 percent of Americans saying they would be optimistic about a foreign firm taking over a domestic company.
The polling may be seen as a result of prevailing western national security concerns about foreign investment from China and the increasingly protectionist policies that have been pursued in the U.S. since Donald Trump’s election as president in 2016.
The U.K. followed America’s lead in 2020, introducing the National Security and Investment Act to screen foreign investment into sensitive U.K. industries and banning Chinese firm Huawei from helping build Britain’s 5G network.
Ameet Gill, partner at Hanbury, said that “Western countries and the political movements that have driven globalization are now themselves pulling up the drawbridge.”
“Investors need to understand the concerns of local people and take action to demonstrate how they will improve their lives,” he added.
A government spokesperson said: “Our recent Public Attitudes to Trade survey found that, far from becoming more protectionist, over two-thirds of the British public are positive about the impact of trade on the U.K. economy, up 5 percent on the previous year.
“We are proud that the U.K. is one of the world’s top destinations for foreign inward investment, worth over £2 trillion.”
- Some property agents are wearing body cameras
- Cameras used as security measure during inspections
- Some tenants concerned cameras breach privacy
Real estate agents have resorted to wearing body cameras to protect themselves from potentially disgruntled renters.
The drastic step comes as skyrocketing rents and low property vacancies put a strain on already tense relationships between tenants and property managers.
Queensland-based company 360 Property Management Mackay has already rolled out the changes.
Office manager and sales agent Adele Crocker made the decision for her staff to wear body cameras when conducting tenant home inspections.
Ms Crocker decided on the security measure after one of her female agents was trapped inside a property after a renter refused to let her out.
‘After this occurred we had a big discussion on safety in the workplace and spoke about how we could all feel safer entering into home of what essentially are strangers,’ Ms Crocker told news.com.au.
Current tenants were informed that property managers would be wearing body cameras as part of their personal protective equipment, while new tenants will be advised at the beginning of their tenancy.
The body cameras will be turned on at the start of the inspection – when an agent enters the home – with the footage uploaded and stored on a data base.
Ms Crocker added the footage is stored for a short period of time and if no incidents arise during the visit it is then deleted.
She added the majority of tenants viewed the security measure as ‘important’ and were ‘surprised’ the agency had not implemented the policy sooner.
However, the agency received some negative written and verbal responses to the security policy claiming the body cameras violate their privacy.
Ms Crocker said staff are ‘very mindful’ of their tenants privacy but believes the cameras act a deterrent which stops renters from lashing out at staff.
‘If someone was upset, the camera may very well be a visual deterrent to become upset at staff and instead wait until they have left and then perhaps phone with their concerns,’ Ms Crocker said.
‘If walking into a strangers home with a camera on gives that feeling of security, with or without incident, then we are doing our job correctly.’
Corporate Director of OBrien Real Estate in Victoria Darren Hutchins said his team of property managers do not use body cameras but employ other safety measures.
Mr Hutchins explained property managers have a ‘safety app’ on their phone and are advised to take a support person or team member with them if they feel a conflict or issue could arise.
He added incidences between agents and tenants have occurred but are ‘very rare’, claiming when respect is shown to a renter then it is ‘generally given’ to staff.
In relation to body cameras and privacy, there is no general ‘right’ to privacy that is enforceable by legislation in Australia.
There is no legal objection for someone to take a photo or video footage of something that they can capture from where they are standing as long as it is in a public space.
An individual can object to footage provided it was captured in a non-public space including somewhere owned by a person, government department or company.
However, the law becomes more complicated when dealing with property managers who enter a tenants home for the purpose of an inspection.
The property manager, in a legal sense, is an agent for the homeowner and therefore is not viewed as an ordinary member of the public just as the tenant is not viewed as ‘owning’ the space.
Security footage from inside the Commercial Bay tower complex shows heavily armed police sweeping the building after the mass shooting in Auckland this morning.
With rifles raised, flashlights and other tactical equipment, the officers move through the restaurant Burger Burger, searching the building for any more danger after the gunman, 24-year-old Matu Tangi Matua Reid, was killed following a shootout with police.
Before his death, Reid killed two civilians and injured at least five others, including a police officer.
Police Commissioner Andrew Coster, speaking at a media briefing this afternoon, offered his condolences to the family and friends of colleagues and victims.
Coster said his investigation team was working at pace to determine the cause of the shooting.
He said police were at the site within minutes of receiving multiple calls just after 7.20am.
The offender made his way up the site, and members of the public were evacuated whenever possible.
Police located the offender in a lift shaft. The offender fired at police, injuring an officer.
Coster said the officer will receive surgery today.
Coster said it was a shocking and traumatic event for those who came to work and found themselves in the middle of an armed emergency.
The offender did not have a firearms licence. Coster confirmed the weapon fired by the offender was a shotgun.
Coster confirmed the offender was the subject of home detention. He wasn’t breaching conditions by going to the site.
The Herald earlier reported Reid was serving a community-based sentence of home detention at the time of the shooting and was subject to electronic monitoring via an ankle bracelet tracker.
He was known for his family violence history, but Coster said there was no history of him showing prior risk.
“There has been [a] previous search of his property, but [we] never found him in possession of a firearm.”
Stuart Cockburn, general manager of ambulance operations for Hato Hone St John, said they had assessed 10 patients and seven had been taken to hospital.
Witnesses have described seeing the shooter stroll casually through the Britomart train station just before he attacked the under-renovation One Queen St building.
The shooter, who was carrying a pump-action shotgun, walked up the stairs and yelled at the building’s construction workers to climb to the roof or he would shoot them.
Workers told the Herald they started to leave the building when the fire alarm went off, but they didn’t realise it wasn’t a drill until others started running and shouting.
High-visibility vest-clad workers can be seen hiding behind things on the roof and in offices halfway up the building in photos.

Manufacturing is emerging as one of the most exposed sectors to ransomware attacks, a report published on Tuesday by cyber security firm Sophos noted. According to its “State of Ransomware in Manufacturing and Production 2023” report, which polled 3,000 IT/cybersecurity leaders in large and mid-sized enterprises, more than two-thirds (68%) of these firms have been hit by ransomware attacks globally had their data encrypted by hackers. This is the highest reported encryption rate for the sector over the past three years, noted Sophos, indicating that attackers are frequently succeeding in encryption data.
While, the percentage of manufacturing firms using backups to recover data has gone up, with 73% of the manufacturing companies surveyed using backups this year versus 58% in the previous year, the sector still has one of the lowest data recovery rates, said the study. For example, in 2022, 67% of manufacturing organisations recovered within a week, while 33% recovered in more than a week. That said, use of backup alone does not guarantee a faster recovery,
“With 77% of manufacturing organisations reporting lost revenue after a ransomware attack, this added cost burden should be avoided, and priority placed on earlier detection and response,” John Shier, field CTO, Sophos, said.
This extended recovery is negatively impacting IT teams, showed the survey, where 69% said that addressing security incidents is too much time consuming and 66% mentioned they are unable to work on other projects as well.
Encryption is often less effective if the cryptographic keys that encrypt and decrypt the data are not secure. Malicious actors often concentrate their attacks on obtaining an organisation’s encryption keys, said Yogesh Zope, chief information officer (CIO) and chief digital officer (CDO) at forging company Bharat Forge. He noted that it requires new approaches to security in the era of smart manufacturing, and emphasised on a robust security solution like an endpoint detection and response (EDR) system.
O.A. Balasubramaniam, Director IT – electric horn manufacturer Roots Group of Companies, also said that manufacturing organisations should invest in cyber security management programmes including threat intelligence, vulnerability assessment, etc. that extend across their IT and OT networks.
The study also found that the proportion of manufacturing organisations paying higher ransoms has increased since last year. Notably, 40% paid a ransom between $100,000 and $999,999 in 2022 compared to 29% who paid this amount in 2021.
Apparently, if organisations pay the ransom, the cybercriminals will give them decryption tools and retract the threat of exposing sensitive data. However, Vishak Raman, vice president for sales in India, SAARC and Southeast Asia, noted, payment doesn’t always guarantee that all the data will be restored. From an organisation’s perspective paying the ransom to recover the lost information might look like the easiest alternative. But paying ransom means we are aiding the attackers’ business model, which will only lead to more ransomware.
According to research firm Gartner, on average, only 65% of the data is recovered, and only 8% of organisations manage to recover all data.
