We were contacted last week by Mrs Jones about a potential Theft in London, she had lost her mother’s diamond ring, she was hoping it had been mislaid but had searched the house.
She explained her son had a history of stealing however for the last few years had been good, and has held down a job and is doing well, however due to his past history she wanted him to take a lie detector test for theft of the ring. For us this is a great test to run, allowing us to achieve maximum accuracy on a single issue test, it’s very black and white, you either stole the ring or not.
As with all theft cases we like initially the person you want to test to be informed, over twenty-five percent of our theft cases never go ahead. A guilty person will often agree to take a lie detector test and then back out at the last minute. So it’s only right that you use the threat of a polygraph test to try and get either a confession or the stolen goods back.
In this case the son was happy to take a lie detector test for the missing ring to put his mother’s mind at rest. It was booked for Friday night as we do evening appointments at out Maidstone HQ so time off work isn’t needed.
I arrived at the office in good time to prepare for the test and I received the following text message from Mrs Jones
A great result without needing a lie detector test, it can’t have been easy for the son to own up so you have to respect that, the main thing is Mrs Jones getting her mother’s diamond ring back, a very sentimental piece of jewellery. A good result for the theft in London.
If you have been a victim of theft, or even been accused of stealing and need to prove your innocence get in touch today and discuss your case with a qualified polygraph examiner and find out why Lie Detectors UK has been voted no1.Read More
After switching to Octopus Energy using our link Maggie Hastings emailed and asked Lie Detectors UK to make the next donation to the Alzheimers Society in memory of her mother who passed from this terrible and cruel disease. We were more than happy as its such a rewarding charity.
I do hope this email finds you safe and well during these unprecedented times.
My name is Sam Edwards and I am the Community Fundraiser for Kent and East Sussex at Alzheimer’s Society. I saw that you recently made a donation of £100 with the reference ‘Maggie Hastings’ and so I wanted to get in touch to say a huge thank you for sending in this money. At times like this, our support for people affected by dementia is more important than ever. Of the 850,000 people with the condition in the UK, 700,000 fall into the Government-specified vulnerable category which will only serve to exacerbate the feelings of isolation and loneliness that many people with dementia have reported feeling. Your generous donation at such a difficult time is so greatly appreciated and every penny means we can continue to be there for people affected by dementia, wherever they are and whenever they need us.Read More
Arthur was born this month with Group B Streptococcus, which is the UK’s most common cause of life-threatening infection in new-born babies, and of meningitis in babies under age 3 months. Its a wonder why we don’t test for the infection, fortunately Arthur is a fighter and with the help of the NHS and his parents and grandparents has pulled through after giving them all a fright. So this month in honour of Arthur we are making a small donation to Group B Strep Support Charity. Receipt below and a picture of the lovely Arthur.Read More

Convicted terrorists are set to face mandatory lie detector tests when they are released from prison on licence.
Lie Detectors UK are pleased to see the UK Government plans to make Convicted terrorists face mandatory lie detector tests.
Tough new laws tightening up early release for prisoners convicted of terror offences have been drawn up by the UK Government.
The Counter Terror and Sentencing Bill will see a minimum sentence of 14 years slapped on terror offences.
The clampdown was ordered after terrorist Usman Khan brutally murdered two probation volunteers near London Bridge last November.
Last night the UK’s independent reviewer of terror legislation Jonathan Hall QC published a long awaited report into the failings that allowed crazed Khan to kill while on parole.
He said: “Polygraph testing is a sensible additional tool for obtaining information relevant to risk posed by Terrorist Offenders.”
“The results are likely to assist in determining whether the offender is complying with their licence conditions… and can assist police to consider risk factors”.
Convicted terrorists will face lie-detector tests under a raft of measures drawn up in the wake of the most recent London Bridge attack to toughen up the monitoring of offenders in the community.
The number of counter-terrorism specialist probation officers will double and they will work to a set of updated national standards for managing terrorists on licence, with closer monitoring and reporting requirements including polygraph tests, the Home Office and Ministry of Justice said in a joint announcement.
Polygraphs, commonly known as lie-detector tests, remain inadmissible in UK courts but their use within the probation service for monitoring offenders is increasing. Sex offenders and domestic abuse perpetrators are already subject to the technology, and failures to pass a test can lead to further investigation or supervision.Advertisement
The government is to launch an independent review of the way different agencies including the police, the probation service and the security services investigate, monitor and manage terrorist offenders – a process known as Multi Agency Public Protection Arrangements (Mappa). The review will be led by Jonathan Hall QC, the independent reviewer of terrorism legislation.
Usman Khan, a convicted terrorist who was out on licence when he murdered two people in Fishmongers’ Hall, in central London, last month before trying to flee across London Bridge where he was shot dead, was subject to Mappa for his previous offending.
The atrocity, which happened in the midst of the general election campaign, led to renewed debate over the impact of austerity on the probation service, which has been crippled by cuts to budgets and staff numbers over the past decade.
A counter-terrorism bill to be unveiled within the first 100 days of the new government will end automatic release on licence for terrorist offenders who receive extended determinate sentences and will introduce a mandatory minimum of 14 years in prison for those convicted of preparing acts of terrorism or directing a terrorist organisation.
Khan’s attack triggered calls for an overhaul of sentencing regimes for terrorist offenders. The father of Jack Merritt, one of the two people killed, accused politicians of capitalising on his son’s death.
The government will also increase the number of specialist psychologists and specially trained imams in prisons and probation who assess the risk of radicalised offenders.
Counter-terrorism policing will increase by £90m to £906m in 2020-21, the Home Office announced, while the Victims of Terrorism Unit will receive an additional £500,000 in funding.
Critics said the overhaul was too little, too late. The shadow home secretary, Diane Abbott, said: “After 10 years in government, a major overhaul now is actually an admission of failure. Major terrorist outrages have occurred all too frequently, including attacks by perpetrators who were known to the security services.
“The fight against terrorism has been undermined by cuts to policing, including community policing, a lack of effective coordination between police and security services as well as the flawed Prevent programme. All of these need to change if we are going to improve the safety of our citizens.”
Khan is understood to have been cooperating with the probation service, which is why he was allowed to travel to London to attend the rehabilitation event at which he launched his frenzied attack.
The chief inspector of probation alluded last week to a lack of “professional curiosity” among inexperienced probation officers who were unable to spot signs of “false compliance” – an industry term for offenders who cooperate with their licence terms in an attempt to conceal their true intentions.
Last year the Ministry of Justice launched a three-year pilot of mandatory polygraph tests on domestic abuse perpetrators released on licence. Lie-detector tests on serious sex offenders on parole in England and Wales have been happening since 2007, and since 2014 mandatory tests have been added to some offenders’s release conditions.

This weekend I was fortunate to meet a lovely couple John and Florence Martin. John is quite famous as a man who rebuilds motorcycles to better than new condition, his attention to detail is amazing, so much so Suzuki UK are aware of his builds and work with him, the last bike he built ended up with Richard Hammond as its new owner.
Johns wife Florence bravely suffers from Multiple sclerosis a disease of the central nervous system (your brain and your spinal cord). It is estimated that there are more than 130,000 people in the UK diagnosed with MS, that’s one in 500, with about 130 people diagnosed every week on average. MS is commonly diagnosed in people between the ages of 20 and 30 . There are roughly three times as many women with MS as men. Read below for what John is doing to raise money for the MS Society.
Lie Detectors UK has made a small donation to help this worthy cause.
John Martin is no stranger to bike builds. Or Katanas, for that matter. Did you see the immaculate Katana on display at Motorcycle Live last year? Or as recently as this year’s London Show? Well, that was his. However, his latest project is a little different. After his wife, Florence, was diagnosed with primary progressive multiple sclerosis, he turned his hand to the thing he’s best at in an effort to raise money for charity; building another Katana.
“My wife was diagnosed two years ago,” John explains. “Naturally, this was a massive shock, tears were shed, and things were going to change for us. We were both very active in the motorcycling scene, and both rode bikes to gatherings, shows, and events. Flo can no longer ride, but thankfully can still ride pillion for the occasional short ride.
“But ultimately there is no cure or treatment, however, she found that keeping busy helped her cope, and decided to do her part to try and help sufferers of MS. She and a few friends started doing things like cake bakes and raised money for charity, and she also spent a year writing a book called This Unseen Jungle which is available on Amazon, again with all proceeds going to charity.”
Keen to get involved and help himself, John mulled over a few ways he could fundraise, but settled on doing the thing he already knew he could do and do well, rebuild a classic, call in as many favours as possible, and in the end raffle it off, with all proceeds going to the MS Society
“I kind of felt useless. I was watching Florence doing these cake bakes, sitting up at the table for hours and hours writing the book to make a few pounds for charity and wanted to help. I’d been considering another bike build for a couple of years, but one sleepless night in bed I settled on doing one for charity.
“I got up that morning, messaged a few friends and contacts with the idea, and it kicked off immediately. I’m also lucky enough to run a small Facebook group called ACS, for old air-cooled Suzukis and the support was incredible. It’s become an extended family for Flo and myself.”
With a plan, albeit loose at that point, in place, John needed to find the right bike for the restoration.
“I have been riding bikes since my 16th birthday, my mum had a blue AP50, and I’ve always had a thing for Suzukis, especially bikes of the 70s, 80s, and early 90s, so the plan was always going to be to restore something from that mould,” John tells us. “But when it came to settling on a suitable subject, it took some careful consideration. Mostly because I needed to ensure I could rebuild it cost-effectively, and also ensure it was going to be a desirable, valuable thing when it came to raffling it off.
“Originally I was keen on a GS750, as I’ve never restored one and I like them a lot. However, a good friend of mine had a friend with a GSX1100SZ Katana that he offered us for just £750. I snapped it up.”
With a goal set and a bike sorted, all that’s left is the rebuild, and the wheels are already turning, thanks to huge support from friends and family, and the various clubs John and Florence are involved with.
“The support has been incredible. When I started floating the idea about the consensus from everyone was to build it, because so many people offered to help. When it came to getting the bike back from Devon to Peterborough Max Mawdsley did it all in exchange for coffee and a slice of cake!
“Tony Garnham offered to carry out the full paint job, including the frame, Chris Crawford has offered to sort the wiring, Gary Bond is also servicing the forks for us, Brian McCall offered to do all the vapor blasting and coating on the motor, carbs, and wheels, and Jon Skelly offered to rebuild the engine. The generosity has been amazing.
“This is all born out of very unfortunate circumstances, but Florence has been so inspiring. At times she couldn’t write her book as her hands didn’t want to work. So instead she downloaded a voice activation app and carried on. She’s also writing it in French, so it can be released in France and raise more money. I hope this is my way of helping, too.”

With all this talk of shutdown it’s worth noting that if it comes to it there could be thousands of business put at risk, some already are. Business cannot survive without income, sales, and if the community is shut down then it starts the clock ticking for all of them, us included.
First off, let me say, we are financially strong enough to survive many weeks before we enter the realm of trading insolvency. We are a small team and all of our staff will be paid in full as usual whether they are here or not, they are part of who we are as much as anyone.
People come first of course, we want everyone to be safe, but we need to be the world post corona virus .
We are open as usual, if any of us get sick we will of course self isolate as per the guidelines but our operational roles are not close contact by any imagination so we will continue to operate as usual unless we are forced not to.Read More
Lie Detector Payment Plans
We totally appreciate taking a lie detector test is expensive, whilst our prices are fixed and transparent at £399 all inclusive at our own offices this is a lot of money to find. We have been asked a lot do we have a payment plan so the client can spread the cost of the lie detector test, and the answer is yes we do. We do require full payment though before running a lie detector test, imagine if the result isn’t what the clients wants, we may never get paid!
When setting up a payment plan for a client we give them our bank details and a unique reference so that any money paid to us can be tracked. Alternatively, we can send a weekly payment request and a link so they make payments. When the balance is close to being paid, we setup a mutually agreeable time for the lie detector test.
We also take payment on card should you wish to use a credit card to make payment and spread the cost this way instead of using our payment plan.
Whilst we totally appreciate the urgency for many to take a lie detector test, we urge clients not to go into debt in order to pay for a lie detector test.
Lie Detectors UK cover the complete UK and have their own offices in Maidstone in Kent but also can come to you. All examiners are members of the American Polygraph Association and the British Polygraph Association which shows they are fully qualified and experienced and use the latest equipment and techniques for accuracy. Call us today on 0207 859 4960 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and talk with an examiner and discuss your case. We do take a deposit of £150 when we take a booking from a client.

The Huel Powder Formula Explained
Huel Powder is a nutritionally complete powdered food that is high in protein and fibre, low in sugar and salt, rich in phytonutrients, and contains a balanced macro split of 37:30:30:3 (carbohydrate, protein, fat, fibre) and all 26 essential vitamins and minerals.
Additionally, it contains no lactose or any animal products, no soy, and no GMO.
Huel Powder meets the UK and EU Reference Nutrient Intake (RNI), Reference Intake (RI) and Nutrient Reference Value (NRV) for all macro- and micronutrients, it is a sustained source of energy and has a wealth of other nutritional benefits.
Huel Powder is 37:30:30:3 Macro Split
The principle macronutrients that we obtain energy from food are carbohydrate, fat, protein, and fibre. In Huel Powder we’ve set them at the ratio of 37:30:30:3 respectively; i.e. 37% of the energy comes from carbohydrates, 30% from fats, 30% from proteins and 3% from fibre.
Amino acids are the most basic units of protein, and several amino acids are essential for life, with others being crucial for good health, so any diet has to contain a significant amount of protein.
There are also fatty acids that are essential for life and good health, so including sources of fat is crucial too.
Carbohydrates, however, are not essential per se, but they do have significant benefits to sustaining even energy levels and are significantly cheaper, helping to make Huel Powder more affordable.
We’ve designed Huel Powder at these ratios as they are not only within the parameters of the healthy eating guidelines but are also levels designed for optimum, sustained energy release whilst covering macronutritional requirements for disease prevention.
The carbs in Huel Powder are from ultra-fine powdered oats and tapioca. Oats have been shown to have a low glycaemic index (GI); GI refers to the speed after which we ingest a carb source to the resulting rise in blood sugar and, hence, energy levels The oats in Huel Powder mix easily and help sustain energy levels until the next meal. Many of the formulas used in sports nutrition or for weight reduction use maltodextrin as the main carb source. Maltodextrin is cheap and easy to mix, so there’s a valid reason for its use. However, although it’s a ‘complex’ carb, it actually has a high GI , so these formulas provide a surge of energy followed by a slump: far from ideal for busy people with active jobs. Maltodextrin is also a synthetic carb so provides nothing more than carbohydrates for energy. The oat powder in Huel Powder has been milled so finely that it’s readily soluble, and there’s also not a huge price difference compared to maltodextrin. Plus, as oats are natural, they provide so much more than just carbohydrates: many vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytonutrients too. Indeed, it could be said that the inclusion of oat powder is one of the main reasons why Huel Powder could be considered superior to many foods readily consumed today.
Tapioca is a starch extracted from cassava, a root vegetable, similar to sweet potato. It’s inclusion in Huel Powder provides additional carbohydrates and aids texture.
The fats in Huel Powder provide 30% of the total energy and are made up from flaxseeds and sunflower seeds to ensure that the essential fatty acids are included in optimum amounts. We’ve also included coconut for very good reasons: the fats in coconut are what are known as medium-chain triglycerides, or MCTs, and these are treated much like carbs, i.e. they provide an energy-rich, sustained fuel and are perfect for those of us with busy lifestyles But MCTs have another invaluable quality: they are not susceptible to oxidation and rancidity, meaning that they do not contribute to the formation of atherosclerotic plaques which increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. In short, MCTs from coconut are a healthy and efficient source of energy.
There are two completely essential fatty acids (EFAs) that humans require: linoleic acid (LA – an omega-6 fatty acid) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA – an omega-3) . Using our blend of flaxseed and sunflower oil powder, we’ve ensured Huel Powder contains sufficient amounts of both of these EFAs as well as other omega-3 and -6 fatty acids. Moreover, these natural seed powders provide antioxidants and other vitamins and minerals in a biochemical redox balance to help minimise free-radical production. Free radicals may be involved in the pathology of cancer, cardiovascular disease and ageing, so it’s desirable to keep their formation to a minimum, and this is the role of antioxidants.
The RI for protein is 50g per day, but this only covers our very basic needs and prevents protein deficiency . The Western diet typically provides more and Huel Powder does too. All essential amino acids are included in adequate amounts from two vegan protein sources: pea and brown rice protein, as well as protein from the oat powder. Based on an average 2,000-calorie intake, you’ll be consuming 148g protein per day from Huel Powder. This provides a good amount for optimal health as well as building and maintaining a healthy body. Furthermore, protein is more satiating (appetite suppressing) than other macronutrients , and we’ve designed Huel Powder to stop unwanted hunger pangs.
Protein is made up of amino acids. There are over 500 amino acids in nature, 20 of which are known as the standard amino acids, as these are the ones that are coded for genetically and are subsequently involved in primary protein synthesis in animals. Of these 20, nine are essential as they cannot be synthesised from other amino acids.
The nine essential amino acids are:
The other 11 are:
- Aspartic acid
- Glutamic acid
Amino Acid Content of Huel Powder (based on v3.0 Vanilla – amounts will differ slightly for other flavours)
|Amino Acid (mg)||Per 100g||Per 2000kcal||RDA*||%RDA per 100g|
*WHO (2007) recommended daily amounts for essential amino acids for a 70kg adult
**Combined total for methionine + cysteine
***Combined total for phenylalanine + tyrosine
****Figure includes asparagine
*****Figure includes glutamine
All protein sources are not equal: some are classed as ‘complete proteins’ and some are not. A complete protein is one that contains sufficient quantities of all nine essential amino acids.
Generally, proteins derived from animal foods (meats, fish, poultry, milk and eggs) are complete. Indeed, some proteins derived from plant foods (legumes, seeds, grains and vegetables) are often complete as well; examples include chickpeas, black beans, pumpkin seeds, cashews, cauliflower, quinoa, pistachios, turnip greens, black-eyed peas and soya. Many plant foods have insufficient amounts of one or more of the essential amino acids. Some are notably low, such as corn protein, which is low in lysine and isoleucine.
The protein in Huel Powder comes from four of the main six ingredients: pea protein, oats, brown rice protein and flaxseed. This ensures a good range of all amino acids and that there are sufficient amounts of the essential amino acids. Rice protein is high in the sulphur-containing amino acids cysteine and methionine, plus it contains good amounts of all the others, but is very low in lysine. Pea protein is low in cysteine and methionine but high in lysine. This is why we selected these two sources, ensuring everything was covered whilst keeping Huel Powder vegan. Plus there’s additional protein from the oats, which are reasonably high in all essential aminos, and the flaxseed.
Huel Powder contains 116-152% (based on European v3.0 formula, varies between flavour/variety) of the recommended daily amount of fibre. The fibre in Huel Powder is a mixture of soluble and insoluble forms all naturally supplied from the food ingredients, mainly from oats and flaxseed, and provides more than most modern solid diets. The high-fibre content of Huel Powder helps to ensure the formation of normal, solid stools in healthy users.
Fibre acts like a sponge, so it’s important to consume lots of water when using Huel Powder . The Huel Powder formula has been designed to maintain optimum digestive system health. Moreover, you may well have heard about the beneficial soluble fibre in oats called beta-glucan; well, Huel Powder is loaded with this cholesterol-lowering fibre; ideal for a healthy heart .
A bulk of the vitamins and minerals – also known as micronutrients – in Huel Powder are from natural ingredients. However, in order to meet the demands of a Western lifestyle, we’ve added a unique vitamin and mineral formula to provide, in some cases, more than 100% of the recommended amounts.
Since the UK Dietary Reference Values were compiled in 1991 , there have been numerous studies in the past 20 years demonstrating that, for many micronutrients, levels higher than the RNI may have beneficial effects to health.
For example, it’s widely considered that the amount of vitamin C we’re recommended to consume is too low , so we’ve reflected this in the Huel Powder formula. The vitamin C in Huel Powder is provided by the acerola cherries. Benefits of consuming more vitamin C include a healthy immune system, healthy skin and antioxidant properties
With calcium, the US recommended amount is more than the UK RNI (1,300mg vs 800mg per day) , and we feel the US recommendation is more than sufficient to more than protect against osteoporosis. With some of the trace elements the levels are far higher than the recommended amounts. This is because we only need tiny amounts of them, but the natural ingredients in Huel Powder are a rich source.
Choline is a conditionally essential B vitamin, and although, strictly speaking, it can be synthesised in our bodies, it’s more efficient to obtain it from our diets. It’s of particular importance for post-menopausal women. As Huel Powder is all about optimum health, the inclusion of choline was felt to be fundamental.
Iodine is a trace mineral essential for thyroid health. The inclusion of kelp in Huel is to provide a natural source of iodine.
There has been some concern about phytic acid: a naturally occurring substance in some cereals including oats. Phytic acid can chelate (bind) some minerals meaning that they’re less bioavailable . As oat powder is a fundamental ingredient of Huel Powder, we’ve ensured the levels of some minerals, like iron and zinc, are higher, to accommodate any issues with phytic acid chelation. Furthermore, the high level of vitamin C in Huel Powder will also further promote iron absorption .
Phytonutrients are substances found in plant foods which, whilst not essential, may exhibit some health benefits like disease risk prevention. Junk food diets and many synthetic liquid diets that aren’t based on real food are deficient in phytonutrients, and thus consumers miss out on invaluable health benefits and antioxidant effects.
Because Huel Powder’s fundamental ingredients are plant-based foods, these are already phytonutrient-rich and the benefits are passed onto anyone consuming Huel Powder. However, we’ve also added some additional phytonutrients to optimise the Huel Powder formula and to complement the antioxidant nutrients vitamins C and E and selenium.
Phytonutrient polyphenols in Huel Powder have antioxidant activity and help protect against cardiovascular disease, some cancers and age-related conditions. Huel Powder’s beneficial phytonutrients include:
- Avenanthramides: antioxidant polyphenols unique to oats shown to have anti-inflammatory effects.
- Ferulic acid: also from oats, a potent antioxidant and antibacterial agent that has also been shown to have anti-cancer properties.
- Lutein: from the flaxseed powder and we’ve also added additional lutein in our vitamin and mineral blend. Although not essential, there is concern that diets low in lutein may lead to macular degeneration of the eye in the elderly, as lutein is involved in eye pigment development. Lutein is also an antioxidant.
- Zeaxanthin: another antioxidant, this has been added as it also has a role in long-term eye health.
- Lycopene: added as it’s a potent antioxidant and has been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and some cancers.
- Other carotenoids and bioflavonoids have antioxidant activity and are naturally present from the acerola cherries.
Huel Powder contains the probiotic Bacillus coagulans MTCC 5856. Probiotics are ‘good’ bacteria which, when consumed in adequate amounts, may have health benefits, particularly for gut health.
Kombucha is a fermented product that is made using a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY). Kombucha provides B-vitamins which are produced when the SCOBY breaks down the sugars present.
Summary – Huel Powder is Food
As you can see, Huel Powder has a far superior nutrition compared to most conventional diets. Huel Powder can be your sole nutritional source, or you can drink it as individual meals or even as a between-meal snack. In this way, it can be an add-on improvement to your diet to ensure you’re giving your body what it needs.Read More
