NHS throws
away 120m
plastic cups
every year
BY RUKI SAYID
Consumer Editor
The NHS is under fire for
throwing away 610 million
plastic cups in five years.
The waste amounts to
120 million a year – or
334,000 every day.
Louise Edge, of Greenpeace, said: “These huge
figures demonstrate just
how out of control our
relationship with singleuse plastic has become.”
And Justin Madders,
Labour’s Shadow Health
Minister, said: “This is a
staggering example of
waste in the NHS.”
Freedom of Information
requests from the Press
Association showed 174
English NHS trusts had
used 609,830,335 disposable drinks and medicinal
cups since 2013.
One London trust –
Guy’s and St Thomas’ –
bought 30 million in just
five years.
But some hospitals are
ditching plastic for china
cups and glasses.
A Government spokesman said it was “committed
to reducing its use of
single-use plastics”.

BITTER SPLIT Stephen
Belafonte and ex Mel B
MEL B has signed a bigmoney deal to write a
tell-all autobiography
about her divorce.
The singer described
her memoir Brutally
Honest as an “explosive
and moving” read that
reveals the inside story of
acrimonious split from
Stephen Belafonte.
Mel B, 42, filed
for divorce from
her husband of
10 years in
Mel B’s new book dishes dirt
on ‘abusive, controlling men’
December, accusing him of
“emotional and physical abuse”.
In the book, the former X
Factor judge will discuss her relationships with “domineering,
controlling men”. The star said:
“After a very public court case, I
want to set the record straight.
“This book will show that
abuse can happen to anyone. It is
important that my three girls,
who I raise as a single mother,
know how to break the chain of
abuse – along with any other
woman who reads this book.”
The pair finalised their divorce
late last year. They have agreed
to share custody of their daughter
Madison, six. But film
producer Stephen is also seeking
visitation rights to Angel, 11, Mel
B’s daughter with US comedian
and actor Eddie Murphy. Mel B
is also mum to Phoenix Chi, 19.
Mel B’s released an autobiography, Catch A Fire, in 2002.
But a source said: “So much
has happened since Mel’s first
book. As well as her marriage
breakdown, she’s had a paternity
row with Eddie Murphy, plus the
Spice Girls reunion and her time
working on X Factor.”

FURY OVER TRIBUTES FROM
PLEA Mr Corbyn yesterday
Corbyn: We
need a fresh
approach to
end violence
BY BEN GLAZE
Deputy Political Editor
JEREMY Corbyn called for
a new approach to soaring
violence on our streets as
he launched a bid to tackle
knife and gun crime.
The Labour leader urged
a “serious examination” of
the prison and youth
justice system as he
blasted the “very high rate
of re-offending”.
He said: “Tackling this
requires urgent action and
fresh thinking. To do this,
we must urgently listen to
the communities affected
and those on the front line.
“Ending damaging Tory
cuts to police numbers
and putting more officers
on our streets is only part
of the solution. We must
also learn from other
initiatives that work.”
Mr Corbyn pointed to
the success of Glasgow in
cutting knife crime by
integrating the work of
police, education, health
and other public services.
Campaigners, police and
MPs joined his summit.
They included Aydarus
Ahm ed , prai sed for
calming community fears
after son Mohamed Abdullahi was stabbed to death
in 2013, aged 20, in a case
of mistaken identity in
Holloway, North London.

Vincent’s relatives at fence

MESSAGE Note left to burglar has upset locals
TENSIONS last night grew at a
shrine to stabbed burglar Henry
Vincent near the home of the pensioner who allegedly killed him.
Floral tributes left by the crook’s
family at Richard Osborn-Brooks’
property had twice been torn down by
angry neighbours – only for them to
reappear for a third time yesterday.
And Vincent’s family vowed to return
to the home every day to replace the
messages to “Henryboy” – as they
mounted a vigilante guard nearby.
They even demanded an apology
from Richard, 78, who is under police
protection with disabled wife Maureen,
76, amid fears of revenge attacks after
he was released without charge.

in Hither Green, South East London,
last Wednesday.
DISGUSTING
One supporter, calling himself Cecil
Coley after a 72-year-old shopkeeper
who killed a burglar in Manchester
seven years ago and escaped charges,
arrived from North London to tear
down the flowers and messages.
He said: “The real victim here was
the gentleman who was burgled.
“I had seen it in the media and I
thought, ‘I’m going to drive down there.’
I saw the flowers attached to the fence
and I just decided to take them off.
“I was just thinking, it’s disgusting for
people to leave tributes for this career
criminal like he’s a war hero when
flowers should be left for Richard.
“I was going to leave them [the
flowers] there but then I thought that
people might interpret it differently.
“I hope this deters other people from
breaking in to people’s houses. The
whole nation is against Henry Vincent.”
Footage of the man tearing down the
floral tributes has been shared
hundreds of times online.
The man arrived on Monday and
dumped the flowers in a cemetery.
When told Vincent’s relatives have
put them back up at the shrine, he said:

BY MARTIN FRICKER
IN HIDING Richard was hailed a hero after stabbing Vincent, right
flowers for the graveyard.” After the
burglar’s family replaced the blooms
yesterday, an angry local appeared and
hacked at them with scissors.
The man, who did not want to be
named, said of the shrine: “It was
inappropriate, poor taste really.”
And n eighbour Saverimuthu
Augustine was furious some of the
flowers had been tied to his fence.
The 78-year-old said: “I don’t
appreciate it. If it’s a normal person it’s
different, but he went and burgled a
house. It could have even been my house.
“You’re thinking, ‘How long will it be
up there?’”
As he spoke, Vincent’s cousin Elvina
Lee and a woman claiming to be his aunt
were spotted waiting in a car up the road
from the shrine to the career crook, who
spent years terrorising elderly and
vulnerable homeowners with distraction
burglaries and scams.
Elvina tied flowers to the fence again
and said of Richard: “Murder is murder.
I don’t care how it’s done. He took his life.
“I’ve got no sympathy for him. They’ve
got no sympathy for us.
“This is the best place for these flowers
to be. He (Vincent) wasn’t a murderer.
He wasn’t a rapist. What they’re doing is
wrong. He loved his family. They’re
putting him up as a monster.”
Gesturing towards Richard’s house,
she added: “That’s the real murderer.”
An aunt of Vincent’s said of Richard
from her home in St Paul’s Cray, South
East London: “He’s got no remorse. There
is no remorse there. Have you ever heard
that man say… not for Henry but for his
mum and dad and his little girls, ‘I’m
sorry for his kids.’ We didn’t put anything
on the old man’s house. We put it across
the road, where [Vincent] died.
“From where he went to where he
died. We did not go near the old man’s
house. We don’t want to know about the
old man. Do you want the truth? He’s no
f*****g pushover.”
WOUND
There have been claims Vincent’s
family “won’t rest until they get their
revenge” for his death.
One Traveller who knew the crook
said: “When I say revenge, I mean they’ll
go armed with whatever they’ve got.”
Vincent died in hospital after suffering
a stab wound to the chest as he broke
into Richard’s home with alleged
accomplice Billy Jeeves, 28. The pair fled
but Vincent collapsed in the street
nearby and was left to bleed to death.
Scotland Yard are still hunting for
Jeeves. His burnt-out Vauxhall Astra van
was found on Saturday in St Mary Cray.
Detectives say he has links with
Orpington and Swanley, in Kent.
Elvina said: “Billy Jeeves? I love him.
He shouldn’t be arrested.” Both Jeeves
and Vincent were wanted over a string
of alleged raids earlier this year.
A coroner released Vincent’s body to
his family for burial as an inquest into his
death was opened at Southwark
coroner’s court yesterday.
Richard was originally arrested on
suspicion of murder but freed after a
public outcry over the case.

Shadow minister in B-word
blast at party’s Brexit policy
BY BEN GLAZE Deputy Political Editor
A LABOUR frontbencher said part of
the party’s Brexit policy is “b*****ks”,

Shadow International Trade Secretary Barry Gardiner slated Labour’s

A recording emerged of him
calling the position “b*****ks –

Jeremy Corbyn said yesterday: “He does

Bride-to-be’s dad splashes out on
new ‘throne’... for a princely £43
EXCLUSIVE BY CHRISTOPHER BUCKTIN
US Editor in Rosarito, Mexico
MEGHAN Markle’s dad walks the aisles of
a DIY store as Prince Harry’s future
father-in-law shops for a new “throne”.
Thomas Markle has been busy making
his Mexican home fit for a princess.
The 72-year- old was spotted buying a
toilet at The Home Depot – North
America’s B&Q – for his seafront house
on the outskirts of Rosarito.
And he is flush with cash after getting
the loo for a knockdown 1,125 pesos –
£43.32 – after it was reduced by £5.
A friend of Mr Markle’s said: “Even
though Tom doesn’t own his place, he
treats it like his own palace.”
Mr Markle’s years as a lighting director
in Hollywood left him skilled at DIY.
The pal added: “There is not a lot he
cannot turn his hand to. He potters
around all day tinkering. His latest project
was renovating the bathroom.”
He loaded the loo into the back of his
old Ford Escape before returning home.
It comes after claims that Prince
Charles takes his own toilet seat with him
when he goes on royal tours. He
rubbished the story, from a new book,
saying: “Oh, don’t believe all that crap.”
Mr Markle retired to Mexico after being
made bankrupt. He has been spending
time with close friend Lori Davis, 38, and
often eats lunch and dinner with her.
Mum-of-one Lori later told the Mirror
the reports that Mr Markle would be too ill
to travel to the wedding at Windsor Castle
next month were overblown.
She said: “Tom is fine. He does walk
with a slight hobble but nothing that

PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle
have asked for charity donations rather
than gifts when they marry next month.
The seven good causes they have
chosen range from homelessness to
women’s empowerment and HIV.
Kensington Palace said the couple
picked organisations which reflected
their shared values. Among them is
Scotty’s Little Soldiers, a military charity
which supports children who have lost
a parent serving in the armed forces.
Mum-of-two Nikki Scott, 28, founded
it after her husband Cpl Lee Scott died
in Afghanistan in 2009.
Nikki, of King’s Lynn, Norfolk, said:
“To have been personally chosen by
them is an incredible honour.”
She said of Harry, an Afghanistan
veteran: “I know the armed forces and
looking after children our heroes have
left behind is close to his heart.”
Meghan has a personal connection to
another of the charities chosen.
Last year she visited the Myna Mahila
Foundation, which supports working
women in Mumbai’s slums.
They also named Chiva, the Children’s
HIV Association, a charity evocative of
the work Harry’s mother Princess Diana
did to destigmatise the disease.
Chairwoman Dr Amanda Williams said:
“We are a very small charity. All
donations make a significant difference.”
Meghan and Harry picked StreetGames, which uses sport to help young
people change their lives, marine
conservation charity Surfers Against
Sewage, homelessness charity Crisis,
and the Wilderness Foundation UK.

VOICE OF THE
Parliament
must speak
EVERY decent person will be revolted by
the pictures of dead children and adults
in Syria, poisoned in an evil chemical
attack in the bloodiest of civil wars.
The finger of blame points in the direction
of murderous dictator Bashar al-Assad, who
is believed to have the stocks, and the means,
to deliver these terrible banned weapons.
Doing nothing is not an option but after
disasters in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, our
Government must think carefully and seek the
approval of Parliament before being sucked
into another unpredictable conflict.
Without evidence that dropping more
bombs would bring this civil war to a swifter
end, following a trigger-happy Donald Trump
into a military battle, with Russia on the other
side, isn’t a decision for a Prime Minister alone.
Syria needs a solution, and diplomacy isn’t
easy when enemies are dug in and al-Assad is
in a vengeful mood. But recent history teaches
us that war is not an easy answer.
Power to burn
BRITISH Gas’s inflation-busting average
5.5% price rise will scorch a big hole in
4.1 million customers’ pockets.
But instead of branding the increase
“unjustified”, the Government should have
changed the law already so energy suppliers
are unable to exploit the public like this.
What’s equally unjustified is the slowness of
Tory Ministers to champion consumers ahead
of highly profitable corporations.
Energy is vital. We all need it. Yet the energy
market isn’t working in our favour. And greedy
British Gas ensures support will rise to end
privatisation and restore public ownership.
Wedding cheer
LEAVING bigwigs such as Theresa May
and Barack Obama off the Windsor
wedding list avoids a seating nightmare
for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
The couple will still draw a big crowd as they
have invited 1,200 members of the public into
the castle grounds to cheer them on May 19,
so they won’t lack well-wishers.

I remember when I first saw it I
thought it was a bit strange.
Now it makes total sense to me,
because dogs are non-judgmental,
they don’t care what you do for a

ultimate soulmates. Through thick

If you come downstairs in your

jogging bottoms, your wife might
judge you – but your dog won’t.
A dog doesn’t question your point
of view, your peculiar passions or
your politics. But they are great
listeners. And millions of us love to
chat with them, even if the
conversation is a bit one-sided.

BY MARTIN FRICKER
STUDENT Emily Lock earned
£10,000 a year at Lidl and her boyfriend claimed to be just a struggling
builder – but glam photos she posted
online told a very different story.
In fact, the celeb lifestyle she boasted
about on Instagram – including luxury
holidays and designer clothes – was
being funded by his drug dealing.
Part time checkout worker Lock, 22,
has been jailed for 15 months for
acquiring criminal property.
Her boyfriend Mark Price, 27, has
been sentenced to seven years.
Prosecutor Roger Griffiths told a
court: “Lock posted pictures of herself
living the high life on Instagram. Her
real salary was far removed from
this kind of extravagant lifestyle.”
He said the couple spent £50,000 on
holidays. When police raided Lock’s
home they found £50,000 worth
of goods from luxury brands including
Rolex, Gucci and Vivienne Westwood.
Lock’s lawyer Andrew Taylor said she
became obsessed with living like a celeb.
Mr Taylor told the court: “Many young
people today are fixated by a Kim
Kardashian type of lifestyle. She liked the
high life but she has also been incredibly
naive and has lost everything.”
Lock, a criminology student who
hoped to be a probation officer, amassed
Instagram followers due to her photos

And the couple showed off the flash

When Price, of Caerphilly, South
Wales, and Lock, of nearby Llanbradach,
were arrested they were days away from
a trip to Thailand. Price’s gang made
£1,600 a week from drugs.
At Merthyr Tydfil crown

said Price had never been

His partner Dionne Thomas, 25, from
the same village, admitted acquiring
criminal property and was ordered to do
120 hours of unpaid work.
Christopher Morgan, 30, of nearby
Hengoed, admitted producing cannabis
with intent to supply and was handed a
20-month jail term.

said: “I hope this sends a message to

a chemical attack in the town of

TORY canvassers were allegedly

Local council candidate Maxwell

the group – which was also allegedly
heard saying survivors still living in
hotels were “milking the system”.
Mr Woodger strongly refuted the
allegation but a complaint has been

The witness said he told the Tories
to “show some respect” and then
complained to the manageress – but
she could not do anything as they were
on the other side of the pub wall.
But he added: “A couple came into
the pub grounds to put leaflets on a
table and the manageress asked them
to leave.” The pub’s assistant manager,
Ugne Simabicinte, confirmed that they
were asked to leave.
Mr Woodger was nominated as the
Tory candidate for Queen’s Gate Ward
in South Kensington for May 3.
He said: “That whole story is made
up. No, I was not talking about Grenfell. I could see this guy was irritated
by a group of Tories. He looked over
and started shouting about Grenfell.”
Kensington and Chelsea Conservatives said: “The allegation they were
asked to move because of comments
about Grenfell and the alleged
comments about Grenfell are categorically untrue.” The Conservative Party
did not reply to requests for comment.

Ellie had been in the care of Mr

beat Ellie to death at home in
Sutton, South London.
Mr Gray said: “I still believe that,

and had the parents not been so

alive.” But Dame Linda Dobbs ruled
at South London coroner’s court:
“I am unable to conclude the

Butler was convicted of murder
and will serve a minimum 23 years
in jail. Gray, 38, got 42 months.

LINDA ROBSON ON
First time on the silver screen
FILM DEBUT Pauline and Linda in Junket 89 in 1970
WE all went along to Anna’s because it was like a
youth club. But then we got casting directors
coming down because they liked that we were real
kids, we weren’t jazz-hand stage school kids. So if
they were doing something gritty, they came to us.
I was there with Pauline, who I knew because she
lived near my nan, the Kemp brothers, Martin and
Gary, Kathy Burke, Gillian Taylforth, so many names.
The first big job was Junket 89 for the Saturday
Morning Pictures. When it came out, my mum took
about 20 kids and I down to the Carlton cinema.
They were all cheering every time I came on! It is
funny to watch now. We’ve got such high squeaky
voices and it just looks like I’m overacting! Around
then I had to open a bank account. I was the first in
my family to open one. None of my family had one.
Shedding the Cockney accent
WHEN I got good reviews for my Belfast accent for
Harry’s Game, I thought to myself: “That’s good, I’ll
start doing other accents as well the Cockney”.
Well... that never happened!
I was on The Other ‘Arf with
Lorraine Chase (pictured right)
when I was asked to go in for
Shine on Harvey Moon.
Then Pauline came to visit and
the bosses saw us having a drink,
loved our chemistry, and said
they wanted to do a show with us.
They’d overheard two women talking
about their husbands being inside. So they’d come
up with a show about two sisters.

CHILD’S PLAY Lauren with Nan (Elizabeth Spriggs)
I WAS pregnant with Lauren, now 34, while on Shine
On Harvey Moon and bosses decided to write her in.
She was about nine months when they asked her to
play the neighbour’s baby. It meant loads of scenes
but she did not take to it at all! She took an instant
dislike to Elizabeth Spriggs, who played Nan, and
cried her head off the entire time. And because she
was crying I started crying. It was a disaster. And
that was Lauren’s one and only foray into acting!
PAULINE and I got the bus to the set together for
the first show of Birds of a Feather. We joked all the
way that we’d rather be in child labour or the dentist
than on the way to a live filming!
After the recording the bosses said: “We think
you’ve got a hit on your hands here girls!” And they
were right. The reaction was phenomenal.
Almost overnight, everywhere we went we were
recognised. It’s the same now. During the tour in
2012, we’d go to a supermarket and split up. If
people spotted us together we’d never get out! My
six-year-old granddaughter Lila has just cottoned
onto it. She’s like: “Mummy, tell ‘em who nanna is!”
We got 25 million viewers at one time and lots of
awards, which I keep in the garage! But just working
together is everything. The poor director. He just
can’t get us to stop talking sometimes. Our
lunchbreaks go on for ever.
Our favourite episodes
WE especially loved the specials. We did one in LA,
with George Hamilton and George Wendt from
Cheers, and there we were at The Ivy next to Sly
Stallone and Shirley MacLaine having lunch! All the
crew would be extras in the Christmas specials as
well, which made it special. We’ve still got some of the
same crew now – it’s such a big family. We all often
send food to the homeless shelter near where we film
– but we got complaints because there
wasn’t enough vegetarian!
Lesley, Pauline and I also put
forward a lot of our own ideas to
the writers because they don’t
know women like we know
women. We know about the
menopause, so we put HRT
patches in some scenes, and
there’s a moment where I’m plucking
my chin and no one mentions it. We also insisted on
Tracey getting skin cancer as one in four women now
get cancer. That’s one of our favourites of one of the
series we’ve just done.
I reckon we’ll end with them all in an old people’s
home. Miss Joseph would have the posh room with
someone coming in doing her hair and nails and we’d
be the forgotten two down the end of the corridor!

HER 50 YEARS IN SHOWBIZ
I had my head in

EXCLUSIVE
BY JESSICA BOULTON
SHE was just 10 when she had
her very first role.
But now after turning 60 last
month, Linda Robson is celebrating
another anniversary as well – a
huge 50 years in showbiz.
Born in Islington, North London,
she was one of the original Anna
Scher Theatre schoolkids.
It was there she began a friendship that would change British
comedy, when she became best
friends with Pauline Quirke.
Over the next five decades Linda
appeared in top shows from
Harry’s Game and Shine on
Harvey Moon to I’m A
Celebrity and Loose Women. Yet it
was Birds of a Feather and her role
as Tracey Stubbs that rocketed her
to one of our national treasures.

Russell Brand to having a massage

here Linda shares her

And he said “No, Big!”

and Kevin stood there laughing while we had a row!
The things I put myself through..

I’d signed for I’m A Celeb

was the detox. I’ve never

I still couldn’t do the moves. I think we only got to

NEW TASTE Pink wafers
Pink KitKat...
that’s a bit of
a choc shock
BY RUKI SAYID
Consumer Editor
KITKAT is having a break
with tradition by launching
a bar with pink chocolate.
It is being created using
Ruby cocoa beans, which
makers Nestle say gives a
taste of “berry fruitiness”.
Until now the flavour –
known as the fourth chocolate after dark, milk and
white – has been limited to
gourmet circles.
The pink KitKat will cost
around 85p – 25p more
expensive than the original
milk chocolate version.
It has been a hit in Japan
where it was launched in
January. The UK is the first
European country to try it.
Alex
Gonnella,
marketing director for
Nestle UK said: “A new type
of KitKat is a really big deal
and we are very excited to
be able to offer a different
type of chocolate.”

Hotel “Toe Master” Terry Lee,

The first toe came from
Louie Liken, who suffered
frostbite in the 20s and kept
his digit in alcohol.
It was found in 1973 by a
policeman in a cabin. He
took it to the bar and began
challenging customers to
drink the toe cocktail.
Since then, 10 other toes
have been donated.

Kill or be killed
for 12 year olds
Fortnite Battle
Royale is the hit
video game
your children
are playing
alongside
millions of other
teenagers around the world, even if
you’ve never heard of it. It’s popular
because the premise is simple: you’re in
a battle for survival armed with assault
rifles, rocket launchers or pistols, against
99 other people – and it’s kill or be killed.
Last man/woman standing wins.
My boys love it (and they say girls at
their schools do too), because it’s
intensely competitive. I watched my
14-year-old as his “character” traversed
across an island, running through fields,
hiding in empty buildings and dense
forests while constantly on the lookout
for rivals.
He’s won it once. He achieved “five
kills out of 99”, his final rival dying by
falling out of a tree. “It was such an anticlimax”, he said.
This game is rated 12. Am I the only
parent thinking that’s too young?

There’s been an awful lot of political
mud-slinging in the aftermath of the
Salisbury poisonings with the UK
accusing Russia of a nerve agent attack
on British soil and Russia insisting it’s all
been fabricated. In the middle of the
claims and counter-claims is a
33-year-old woman recovered
sufficiently from the toxic effects of
Novichok to be secretly discharged
from hospital.
Yet Yulia Skripal knows that someone,
somewhere, wanted her and her father

President Obama drew his “red line”,
telling President Assad of Syria that if
“we start seeing a whole bunch of
chemical weapons being moved around
or being utilised… that would change
my equation”.
The next year the White House was
told Syria had done just that – an
estimated thousand people had been
killed in a nerve gas attack near
Damascus. As air strikes loomed, the US
leader was persuaded by the Russians
to use diplomacy, and sure enough Assad
signed the Chemical Weapons
Convention promising to give up
the banned weapons.
When I saw the footage at the weekend
of dead children in Douma in Syria,
corpses with foam at their mouths and
confused patients sitting on hospital beds
with eyes streaming, I wondered if the
much-vaunted “red line” should be
renamed “green light”.

SPRING & SUMMER DEALS
BY NICOLA METHVEN T V Editor
STEPHEN Lawrence’s parents
have revealed they were never
able to talk to each other about
their heartache over his murder
25 years ago this month.
Dad Neville, 76, had been married
for 20 years to wife Doreen when
18-year-old Stephen was stabbed to
death in an unprovoked attack by
five white youths on April 22, 1993.
But within six years of the murder
their marriage fell apart as they
struggled with their grief.
Neville, who has moved back to
his native Jamaica, said: “We were
never able to sit down and discuss
with each other how anybody felt
about what was happening.
“It’s still never been done.
All these years and still we’ve
never been able to sit and
talk to each other about
how much pain each of
us was going through.”
He admits he fell apart
after Stephen was killed
at a bus stop in Eltham, South
East London.
The dad – who also has son
Stuart, 40 and daughter
Georgina, 35, with
Lawrences torn
apart by murder
Doreen – tells a BBC1 documentary: “It’s like I was in a different
country or a different space. I was
totally consumed with grief.”
Doreen, now Baroness Lawrence,
says their marriage started to
crumble as soon as their son died.
“I noticed more or less from the
same night Stephen was killed, how
things changed,” she admitted.
“I had to keep it together for
everybody and I expected some
support from him and it
wasn’t there. It was as if
the tragedy only
happened to him.”
Stephen’s cousin
Mat Bickley tells the
do cum ent ar y,
Stephen: The Murder
that Changed a
Nation , that the
grieving couple “couldn’t
console themselves, let
VICTIM Murdered
Stephen Lawrence
alone find solace in each other”.
Baroness Lawrence, who has tirelessly campaigned for justice for her
son, says the documentary will be
her “final public word” on it all.
The 65-year-old says: “Whilst
Stephen will always travel with us,
a new journey is ahead for us all.”
Police reportedly spent more
than £50million trying to convict all
five suspects, but just two have been
jailed. Gary Dobson, 42, and David
Norris, 41, got life in 2012 after DNA
evidence linked them to the killing.
Neil Acourt, 42, is in jail for drugdealing and brother Jamie, 41, is on
the run in Spain as he too faces
drugs charges. Luke Knight, 41, still
lives freely in Britain.
The Lawrence family’s lawyer,
Imran Khan, has accused Scotland
Yard of failing to end the institutional racism that hampered the
original probe, which he claims is
now just “hidden better”.
In 2013 Stephen’s brother Stuart
sued the Met for race discrimination after being stopped more than
25 times while driving in London.

Ana Cowie, of the Yorkshire Wildlife
Trust Living Seas Centre, said: “You
often find them inland. They can
usually be there for a few days before
finding their way back.”
SUFFERING a brain injury can
raise your risk of developing
dementia – even a minor knock.
A traumatic brain injury boosted
the risk of conditions like Alzheimer’s by 24% over a 36-year period,
researchers found. And even a relatively minor bump resulting in
concussion led to a 17% risk hike.
Lead author Professor Jesse Fann
said: “Individuals with a history of
TBI, including less severe injuries,
have increased risk of dementia,
even decades after the injury.”
The study comes amid concerns
over the impact of repeated head
blows in sports like football and
boxing. The Mirror revealed how
many footie icons of the 1960s later
developed dementia. They include
West Brom star Jeff Astle – who was
renowned as a great header of the
ball and died of a degenerative brain
condition in 2002, aged 59.
The new study analysed
2.8 million people from
1977 to 2013. Over the 36
years, 132,093 had at least
one TBI and most were
classed as mild.
Between 1999 and 2013,
4.5% of the group aged 50 and
older were diagnosed with
ILLNESS Footie star Astle
dementia. Some 5.3% had a history
of TBIs compared with 4.7%
without dementia.
There was also a cumulative
effect, with risk up nearly three-fold
after suffering five or more TBIs.
A single severe TBI raised risk of
dementia by more than a third.
But the team stressed the
chances of getting dementia
after a brain injury are low.
Prof Fann, of University
of Washington School of
Medicine, US, added: “Our
findings do not suggest
everyone who suffers a TBI
will develop dementia.”

sank. He was overcome, writing in his
diary: “At 5pm she went down by the
head... I cannot write about it.”
But the phlegmatic skipper, Captain
Frank Worsley, carried on taking precise
sextant readings until the very end.
And now, a century later, those
coordinates will be used alongside the
latest navigational aids and hi-tech
equipment in a new polar race echoing

The Sun in Aries at odds
with Pluto indicates a time
of domestic bliss, and your life is
running smoother than ever. True,
you may be feeling on cloud nine,
and there should be some lighter
moments as well today. You are
nothing but an incurable romantic
who just loves love.
The Sun is adversely
aspected by Pluto in
Capricorn today. So, personally or
professionally, you must be at your
most alert. True, you don’t have a
big ego and those around you are
singing your praises. It feels nice to
be rewarded and appreciated for
all of your hard work.

Leo July 23–August 22
The Sun being obscured by
Pluto may coincide with a
few delays. You know you need a
holiday, you just don’t know when
you’ll have time. It’s better to get
everything done before you go
away. Then your only concerns will
be where. Just focus on the more

involved may be removed today.

The Sun is under pressure
from Pluto in Capricorn
today and you should try to make
more of an effort, particularly at
work. It’s worth it, even if you’ve

will be rewarded greatly. As far as
others are concerned, this is your

things won’t run smoothly whether

For you, the Sun being

Don’t let them in so easily, but also

How much love do you have to

DEAR COLEEN
Britain’s most straight-talking problem page
Dear Coleen
My seven-year-old stepson is a bit of
a handful. I can see why, as his mum
walked out on his dad when he was
three and he hasn’t seen her since.
She has alcohol problems and we
hear from her occasionally, but
she’s not capable of being in her
son’s life right now.
My problem is, my own family are
so judgmental. Two years after my
marriage, they just see him as
naughty. My brother and his wife
have two children of a similar age
and it’s obvious to everyone,
including my stepson, they’re the
favourites. I feel so hurt when my
stepson is left out or told off. There’s
a lot of eye-rolling from my brother
and his wife, too, which drives me
mad. Why are they so immature?
Coleen says
Shame on them for
their lack of empathy
and understanding.
At seven, he’s not
emotionally mature
enough to verbalise
his feelings over his
mum leaving, so
they’re probably coming out via
bad behaviour. He’s seeing these
kids with their nice family set-up
and he might be feeling jealous. I’m
sure it taps into his insecurities.
Have an honest conversation
with your brother. Tell him you know
your stepson can be a handful, but
he’s struggling to understand
what’s happened to him so the last
thing you need is your family
judging him or you as a parent. His
behaviour is the elephant in the
room, so talk about it and listen to
what they have to say, too.
For you and your husband, it’s a
balancing act – getting the
discipline right, while making
allowances for him. I divorced my
first husband when my boys were
young and they could have terrible
tantrums. I got a similar attitude
from some of my family, but now
they all say what amazing young
men they’ve grown into.
You love your stepson and you
know his good points too, so keep
giving him love as well as
boundaries and I’m sure he’ll grow
into a fine young man. Good luck.
She dumped me out of
the blue and vanished
Dear Coleen
I’m a 53-year-old openly gay
woman who, up until seven weeks
ago, was in a very loving relationship with my beautiful (also openly
gay) 50-year-old old girlfriend. She
sold her home to move in with me
and we were so in love.
She was the kindest, most loving
and generous woman I’d ever
met and my best friend, too. I
thought we had everything to look
forward to.
That was until five days after
booking an exotic holiday when
she came home and said: “I’m
empty. I can’t do this any more.”
She ended it and my world
crashed around me. She was so
cold I didn’t recognise her – it was
surreal – and I had a total meltdown trying to figure out why! It
was so out of the blue and I still
can’t get my head around it.
I begged for her to at least agree to
see me in a few months’ time to
explain why, but she said there would
be no point. It’s killing me not

AFRAID
TO
TELL
HIM
OF
£30K
DEBT
Dear Coleen
I’ve been keeping it secret
from my husband that I have
£30k worth of debt, which
I’ve run up over the past
two years. We are about to
renew the mortgage on our
house in the summer so he’s
going to find out and I’m sick
with worry.
It’ll not only affect our
lending, but he’ll know I’ve
lied to him.
We relocated to a new area a
couple of years ago and I’ve been
pretty miserable, plus the move
has affected my work, meaning
I’ve been earning less.
However, I haven’t been
spending less – I’ve been
spending more, probably because
I’m unhappy and looking for fast
fixes to make myself feel better.
What can I do? I can’t leave it
until July when our mortgage is
up for renewal to tell him – he’ll
go mad.
Coleen says
I can feel how stressed you are
about admitting this to your
husband, but you have to do it
because he’s going to find out
and it’s better to be in control of
that situation.
The best thing to do is arm
yourself with information
on how you can get help
with your debt before you
speak to him. You can talk
to your bank, but also the
debt charity StepChange
(stepchange.org; call: 0800
138 1111), which can provide
financial advice, as well as
devise a debt management
plan to help you pay off
your debt at a more
manageable rate.
You also need to tackle the
root of your spending problem
and think about what will make
you happier. At the moment,
you’re trying to combat your
misery by living above your
means, which might make you
feel better short-term, but the
comedown is you’re staring at a
£30k debt. Until you take steps
to address your unhappiness,
you’ll still be vulnerable.

Work at it
to build
yourself a
powerful
pension
AUTOMATIC enrolment into
workplace pensions has been a
huge success, encouraging more
than nine million new savers to
start putting something away for
their future.
But while it’s excellent news that
millions more have got into the longterm saving habit, the amounts being
put away are too small and will still
leave many people struggling
financially later in life.
Workers may be surprised to see a
bit less in their pay packet this month
as the minimum legal contributions
for workplace pensions have risen.
But it is vital they don’t get tempted
to opt out and stop saving.
This is a tiny step in the right
direction. Minimum contributions
from workers have risen from 1% to
3% and for employers from 1% to 2%.
And they will rise again in April 2019
to 5% and 3% respectively.
Workers must up the amount they
save for the chance to be able to
afford to retire at a reasonable age –
and not end up relying on the state
pension and being forced to work
until they drop.
Already, the state pension age is
rising to age 67 and is expected to
keep going up.
Pension experts reckon we need to
save 12% to 15% of our pay for a
comfortable retirement.
So, even with this month’s increase
and the second one next April, people
are saving way less than they need to.
Andrew Tully, pensions technical
director at Retirement Advantage,
said: “Auto-enrolment has been a huge
success. The state pension only promises to provide a basic standard of
living in retirement, and there are no
promises it will still exist in its current
form when we retire, so it’s great news
more of us are in the savings habit.
“It’s widely recognised that current
levels of saving through auto-enrolment are insufficient to provide
people with a decent living standard
when they retire.

contribution rates will lead to more legal minimums. If you can afford to take

will still leave many people short of the
contribution rate they need to ensure
they can retire at a reasonable age.
“Workers, firms, pension providers and
government all have a role in nudging
people to increase their pension savings,
perhaps each time they get a pay rise, so
that millions more people can have a
decent pension pot of their own and
more choices in later life.”
TOP TIPS TO
GET A DECENT
PENSION POT
■ Don’t opt out of your company
pension scheme – you are giving up free
money if you do. As your boss chips in
more too, it is like getting a pay rise – one
that will benefit you in later life.
■ Start putting money away as early as
possible as the benefits of compound
interest (earning interest on the interest)
will turbocharge your savings. Ideally
I’m due to inherit around
£80,0000 from my late
sister’s estate. Will I need to inform
the tax office of this windfall? I’m
also considering giving the family
some of this money for a property
purchase. What financial
implications would I face if I did?
You don’t usually have to inform
the tax office as your sister’s
estate would need a grant of probate
to release the monies to the
beneficiaries, and therefore all the
relevant authorities will know, and all
taxes (if any) paid beforehand. If you
A
begin saving as soon as you start fulltime work. That way you won’t miss the
contributions, they will simply be part of
the regular deductions from your pay.
Start saving 15% of a £25,000 salary at
age 20 and you’d build up a pension
worth around £349,242 by age 67. Wait
until age 40 to start saving, with the same
level of contributions, and you’d end up
with £153,211 – less than half.
■ Always take advantage if your
employer offers to match the pension
contributions you make at a higher level
than the legal minimums. Push yourself
to save the maximum you can.
Remember, the Government ‘tops up’
your pension contributions through tax
relief – for a basic rate taxpayer each £1
you put in costs you 80p as contributions
go out of your salary before tax.
■ Don’t assume your current level
of savings will be sufficient to provide
a decent standard of living in
re-gift some of the money to family it
could become liable for inheritance
tax if you die within seven years of
gifting it as this would mean it would
be included in your estate.
I have a £4,000 balance on a
credit card with my bank and
the interest is astronomical. I
asked for a loan to pay this off and
said I would close down the card,
but I was informed that my bank
cannot help me. Can you?
Is it possible to transfer to a
better credit card deal with your
bank? If not, I would try another

credit card provider with a 0% deal

your credit report, or your credit
score may not be high enough and
that is why your bank is turning

Each bank has its own criteria for
lending and they are stricter on
affordability checks these days.

retirement. There’s a basic rule of thumb
that you need to save between 12% and
15% of your salary, throughout your
working life, to provide a decent
standard of living in retirement.
■ Think about the timescale you have to
invest your pension savings. You can
probably take more risk with your money
if you are investing over the longer term,
typically 10 years or more.
■ If you’re self-employed, and aged 40 or
less, consider a Lifetime ISA. You can
save up to £4,000 a year until age 50 and
the Government will add a 25% bonus
(the £4,000 counts towards your annual
£20,000 ISA allowance). Savings can be
used to buy a property or be accessed
from age 60. Otherwise withdrawals get
hit with a 25% charge. Don’t mix the uses
of this account. If you are saving towards
older age, leave it there until you’re 60.
■ Use free online tools to check if you’re
on track with your savings such
have been. Can I make a claim
for this money or does it go
to the insurance company?
Unfortunately you cannot
claim this. The spouse’s
pension is usually built into
work or company pensions
from the start and, unless you
married, no one will benefit
from this added feature.
Has the ISA allowance
changed for the new tax
year? I have had a win on my
premium bonds and thought
I’d tuck a bit away.
A
Q
A
as at moneyadviceservice.org.uk/en/
tools/pension-calculator.
■ Find out how much state pension
you’re likely to receive, and when. You
now need 35 qualifying years of National
Insurance to receive the full flat-rate
state pension. Your state pension should
be the basis of your retirement income,
so work out how much extra you need
to ensure you’re comfortable. See gov.uk/
check-state-pension.
■ It’s easy to lose track of older pensions.
You can trace old or lost pensions for free
via gov.uk/find-pension-contact-details.
Or call the Pension Tracing Service on
0800 731 0193.
■ If you’re over 50 you can book a free
session with the Government’s Pension
Wise service on 0800 138 3944/pension
wise.gov.uk to receive guidance on your
pension options. Or, better still, find a
qualified, independent financial adviser
for help and advice via unbiased.co.uk.
No, it remains at £20,000
for the 2018/19 tax year,
although Junior ISAs have
increased slightly to £4,260.
And don’t forget if you are a
basic rate taxpayer you
currently have a £1,000
personal saving allowance.
That means you can earn up to
£1,000 in interest per year
without paying any tax. It’s
£500 if you happen to be a
higher rate tax payer.

insurance can also give you access
to a legal advice helpline, with
support from a team of professionals who can guide you through
any personal legal issue, help you
understand your rights and offer
advice on taking any further steps.
What types of things

It is designed to help with
common legal issues such as:
■ Unfair dismissal, or discrimination at work
■ Injury from an accident that
was not your fault
■ Disputes involving faulty goods

■ Legal costs paid out before your

If you have legal expenses insurance, don’t forget that – as with
any insurance product – a low
price will probably be reflected in
the quality of cover it offers, so it’s
really important to check the
terms and conditions for full
details of the cover, limitations
and any exclusions. If you don’t like what you
find, speak to your insurer about
your options. ■ Millions of adults risk being

CHINA CRISIS
Ryanair feels the
chill after snow
Budget airline Ryanair blamed snow and
strikes for more than 8,000 flights
arriving late last month.
The number of flights that got to their
destination on time slumped to 84%,
from 90% a year ago. And the number of
complaints per 1,000 customers jumped
from 2.28 to 3.42.
Bosses cited “widespread snow” and
walk-outs by French air traffic controllers.
It came as Ryanair passengers flying to
Stansted Airport this week were left
fuming by long baggage claim delays.

BOOST
Little Mix
China has tried to steer clear of a trade war
with the US by pledging to cut tariffs on
imported cars. President Xi Jinping used a
speech to repeat promises to further open
up the country’s economy.
The move was seen as a bid by Beijing to
defuse a trade dispute between the world’s
two biggest economies.
Mike Hawes, head of the Society of
Motor Manufacturers and Traders, said
China’s announcement would also be good
for UK car makers.
“China is an important and growing
market for UK-built vehicles, and exports
increased 19.7% last year,” he said.

A FAMILIAR face pops up in
Benidorm this week. But if you

Simon, forget the Med and

For the creepy holidaymaker is
played by Graeme Hawley, aka
Corrie’s teacher-turned-serial
killer John Stape.
Meanwhile, if you think Shane
Richie’s return as the Tangotanned entertainer has been camp
and crazy so far, you ain’t seen
nothing yet.
Oblivious to the bedlam Sammy

headline at Neptune’s.
But as they discuss the
upcoming show, Sammy ’s
approached by a rather nerdy
looking figure in beige leisurewear.
And it’s clear Simon’s adoration of

“Sammy? Sammy Valentino? I

“Well, as long as it’s above the

some digging around, what he
learns leaves him desperate to halt
the gig. Only trouble is,
Joyce has just introduced Sammy. And
when he takes to the
stage, he spies Simon,
holding a deeply
tanned puppet in a
sequinned jacket.
We’re getting flashbacks to that
creepy Anthony Hopkins film
Magic, and let’s just say the night
ends very badly for one popular
hotel guest. It looks as if Sammy’s
comeback has stalled, and Monty’s

We’re back at Birmingham Women’s
Hospital for more heartwarming
birth stories.
Those pushing and panting this
week include Chantell, who had a
difficult start in life and never thought
she’d find love or have a family of
her own. But that all changed when
she met Phil and, having overcome
various adversities, they’re now due to
welcome their third child.
DRAMA
THE ASSASSINATION
OF GIANNI VERSACE
BBC2, 9pm
It hasn’t earned the critical
plaudits of the OJ Simpson
American Crime Story series that
preceded it but this take on the
death of the Italian fashion
designer – whose funeral was
attended by his great friend
Princess Diana, just weeks before
her own death – has still been
very watchable.
You just need to concentrate, as
the timeline jumps around. This
week we are up to episode seven
of nine, and the action has flipped
back to 1992. At Versace
headquarters, Gianni’s sister
Donatella (Penelope Cruz) is
hampered by self-doubt and
falling out with her perfectionist
brother.
Meanwhile, in San Diego,
Andrew Cunanan, the serial killer
for whom Versace would be victim
number five, is targeting the
wealthy men he believes will lead
him to the glamorous life he’s
convinced he deserves.
Meanwhile twentysomethings Emily
and Nathan discover that an old wives’
tale involving bicarbonate of soda has
correctly predicted the gender of
their baby. But can they convince
everyone else that they are mature
enough to deal with the challenges of
parenthood?
And for Clarke and Debbie, who’s
had a difficult pregnancy, their
daughter’s arrival will herald a new life
for them all. They aren’t living together
at the moment but are looking forward
to finally being a family.

THE BIG QUESTION
Every day we’ll be asking your opinion on one
of Britain’s big talking points. You can have
your say and vote at mirror.co.uk
Theresa May has refused to rule out
joining the US in military action against
Syria after president Bashar al-Assad’s
chemical attack that killed at least 70.
Should the UK
join strikes
against Syria?
YES
39%
No. Seems the Tories are
willing to go to war with
Assad, meanwhile vital
services aren’t being
properly funded.
STEPHANIE DAVIS
Time to boot out
dishonest Boris
■ KEVIN Maguire is spot on with his
article on our Foreign Secretary who
deliberately distorts the truth
(Mirror, April 9).
By saying Porton Down investigators were “absolutely categorical”
that Russia was the source of the
Salisbury nerve agent – a claim later
denied by their experts – he is guilty
of misleading the British people.
But when challenged over this by
Jeremy Corbyn, he chose to accuse
him of “siding with Moscow” and
trying to “discredit the UK”.
Meanwhile, young British mother
Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe is still
held in an Iranian jail over alleged
spying charges despite Johnson’s
bungled efforts at diplomacy –
which threatened to result in her
sentence being doubled at one point.
Johnson consistently lets the
nation down through his ridiculous
remarks and his incompetence. He
should go as soon as possible.

■ It seems the old adage
that your school days are
the happiest of your life
no longer applies. My
granddaughter, who’s six,
came home at the
beginning of the Easter
break with not one but
two SATs papers of 15
and 11 pages. I was
completely baffled by
them, so how is a child of
six supposed to work
them out?
The fault is with the
curriculum. The pressure
on older pupils is bad
enough, but to put it on
infants is disgusting.

COUNTDOWN TO THE BETFRED WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP TODAY: April 11
THE CRUCIBLE THEATRE, SHEFFIELD; APRIL 21 TO MAY 7 ON THIS DAY: 2005
I’m a world champion
but often still wonder
Canavan beat
the likes of
Dennis Taylor
and is now
closing in on
a spot at the
Crucible
PIC: Monique
Limbos
‘WHAT
IF?’
Amateur Canavan swapped snooker for
classic cars.. but now he’s a shock seniors
winner with his sights set on the Crucible
wondering if he might have made it as a pro
BY HECTOR NUNNS
AMATEUR Aaron Canavan has
already taken out a Crucible
legend to earn a shot at reaching
the iconic sporting venue.
And the 42-year-old classic-car
restorer from Jersey today embarks
on his Betfred World Championship
qualifying campaign against
Sheffield regular Rob Milkins.
Canavan, who never went pro,
was a shock winner of the recent
World Seniors (right, with John
Virgo) and now stands three wins
away from the Mecca of snooker.
That success for the former junior
talent, originally from County
Durham, included victory over 1985
world champion Dennis Taylor.
And Canavan, having entered only
on a whim, has spent the past few
weeks wondering what might have
been had his life taken a different
turn. He said: “It was unbelievable to
win the Seniors, after two re-spotted
blacks in the semis and the final. I
haven’t played properly for years and
am basically just a club player. But I
saw the Seniors and thought on a
whim, ‘I am going to have a go at
that.’
“And of course I beat Dennis
Taylor in an early round. Even
though he is older now he can still
play and was really disappointed to
lose. That was a great moment up
against the famous 1985 world
champion and I relished it in front of
1,000 people, I
won’t get to do that
often in my life. I
will never forget
that match.
“When I was a
junior I played a lot
and my dad took
me everywhere but
very sadly we lost
him when I was
only 13. We lived
TIME FOR BIG BEN
BEN YOUNGS reckons he got

knee ligaments and his Six
Nations – even if his
team-mates ribbed him
for screaming.
The scrum-half (right)
yelled in agony 10
minutes into England’s
opening game against Italy in
Rome when his knee got
twisted. His season was
originally written off but he is
set to feature in Leicester’s
cl
clash with Northampton
o
on Saturday.

out in the sticks near Spennymoor
and had no money. My mum didn’t
drive and we were 40 miles away
from the nearest snooker table.
“Then we moved to Jersey when I
was 16 or 17 and I didn’t play again
until I was 24 or 25, always in the
local club leagues.
“I think I always believed deep
down that I might have been good
enough to have been a pro but
circumstances dictated otherwise.

h
have loved to give it
a go on the pro
ttour. If I had been
220 years younger
w
with the greater
opportunities now,
tthat might have
changed things.
“So of course
there are what-if
moments. The
first time I ever
tried anything higher than club stuff
I became a world champion so you
do think, ‘I could have done this’.”
As a car restorer, Canavan would
do a good job with five-time world
champion Ronnie O’Sullivan’s
impressive fleet of motors.
He added: “When I first arrived in
Jersey I was working in a beach
restaurant for three or four years and
I loved that.
“And then I got a job in a garage
and got into car valeting and then
detailing and restoring. I paint them,
restore them – a bit of an Edd China
off TV’s Wheeler Dealers.
“We do all types of cars – classic
and modern. I do a lot of classic cars,
regenerating the leather inside the
car and keeping the original finish.
“You get to work on everything,
brand new Ferrari Enzos down to a
1936 Bugatti, Aston Martin’s other
classic Ferrari 275S – beautiful cars
that I love to work with.”
BROWN’S PEACE WITH BENNETT
BY GARETH WALKER
FORMER St Helens and
Huddersfield boss Nathan
Brown has apologised for his
personal attack on England
coach Wayne Bennett.
After Saturday’s match
between their Newcastle and
Brisbane sides in the NRL,
Brown hit back at Bennett’s
claim that he “unbuilt” the
club after his predecessor’s
departure from the Knights.
e
Brown (right) said he
would not have had to
rebuild anything if
Bennett had thought
“with his big head
rather than his little
head” while at Newcastle.
It was widely interpreted
as a reference to the
breakdown of Bennett’s
42-year marriage during his
time at the Knights.
Brown said:
“Coaches become
quite resilient. We cop
our fair share but dust
of
off the next day and get
on with it. I’ve spoken to
Wayne. If I’ve offended
anyone, I apologise.”
Tiger Woods won his fourth
Masters title, beating Ryder
Cup team-mate Chris DiMarco
with a 15-foot birdie putt at
the first play-off hole.
1999: Wales wrecked England’s Grand
Slam dream at Wembley, beating them
32-31 as Scott Gibbs scored a dazzling
solo try in injury time. Scotland were
crowned Five Nations champions for
the first time since 1990.
2000: South Africa sacked captain
Hansie Cronje as United Cricket Board
chairman Dr Ali Bacher revealed the
player accepted money for matchfixing.

It was a successful season, though,

The Nicky Henderson nine-year-old (above),
who found only Native River too strong in the
feature race of the Festival, faces seven rivals for
the three-mile, one-furlong Grade 1 event.
“He’s in great order and everything is right for
him,” said Might Bite’s trainer Nicky Henderson
yesterday. “He has come out of Cheltenham
well, and I’m not worried about the soft ground.”

Hard-line Sam refuses to
guarantee Rooney starting
berth or playing position
BY DAVID MADDOCK
SAM ALLARDYCE has
made it clear to Wayne
Rooney that star status
does not guarantee him
the role he craves at
Goodison.
The Everton manager had
an informal chat with the
former England captain
yesterday following an
explosive bust-up during the
Merseyside derby at the
weekend.
Rooney, furious about
being substituted less than
an hour into the game,
snubbed Allardyce’s handshake and appeared to
mouth obscenities when he
took his place on the bench.
Allardyce shrugged off the
incident but has told Rooney
that he is not droppable.
Rooney covets a deeper
midfield role at Goodison
but Allardyce has pointed to
statistics that suggest the
32-year-old no longer has
the legs for that job.
Speaking after the Liverpool game, Allardyce said:
“The stats don’t lie. And
when they say levels have to
be lifted – no matter who it
is, Wayne, Phil Jagielka, Tom
Davies, whoever – you get
left out of the team.”
The stats were not kind to

Wolves v Derby 7.45pm

will tarnish Wolves’ success
this term.
The Championship
leaders are closing in on
automatic promotion, but
Portuguese coach Santo’s
wild celebrations have irked
rival bosses.
Cardiff manager Neil
Warnock became the latest
to hit out at Santo’s antics
after Wolves’ 1-0 win in
Wales on Friday, branding
him a “disgrace”.
He joins Tony Pulis and
Steve Bruce in publicly
complaining about the
44-year-old’s excessive
celebrations.
Santo ran straight on to
the pitch, failing to shake
Warnock’s hand at full-time,
after Cardiff missed two
injury-time penalties. Santo
HEIR WE GO
Grealish hits majestic winner to spark

NOT HAPPY Warnock
complained about Santo
apologised to a livid
Warnock via TV afterwards,
but yesterday insisted:
“What people say or think
of me doesn’t distract me
because I have only one
focus – and it’s the game.
“My conscience is very
clear. It hasn’t taken
anything away from the
season.
“The protagonists of the
game are the players.
People should look more at
what the Wolves players
are doing.
“The way they have
developed themselves with
a young, new squad, with a
lot of foreign players mixed
with a lot of British players.
This is building, nothing
else matters.”
Manager Gary Rowett’s
Derby team are bidding for
a play-off spot and he said:
“Hull got a really good
result there last week at
Wolves (2-2 draw), but they
don’t slip up very often, so
we have to be at the top of
our game.”
JACK GREALISH smashed
a majestic late screamer in
front of the Duke of
Cambridge to boost Villa’s
faint automatic promotion
hopes.
And it knocked Cardiff out
of the top two, with Fulham
leapfrogging them.
Neil Warnock’s side perhaps
deserved better but were repeatedly denied by inspired
home keeper Sam Johnstone.
That makes it two defeats
on the spin for the Welshmen,
who had made two changes
after their 13-game unbeaten
League run was ended by
Wolves. Nathaniel Mendez-
Laing and Marko Grujic were
recalled after City blew two
injury-time penalties against
Wolves.
Villa missed crocked skipper
John Terry, who has an ankle
injury and is doubtful for
Friday’s visit of Leeds.
In his absence, Australian
international midfielder Mile
Jedinak was deployed as an
emergency centre-half.
Villa had an early sight of
goal when Lewis Grabban
fired into the side-netting
inside two minutes.
But Cardiff could have taken
the lead themselves in the
16th minute when Kenneth
Zohore put Mendez-Laing
clear. The wide-man acceler-
ated away from Axel Tuanzebe
but saw his low right-foot shot
hit the post.
Albert Adomah, who has 15
goals this term, then hooked a
shot past the Cardiff post in
the 33rd minute.
But Villa were grateful to
keeper Johnstone for going in
goalless at the break.
The on-loan Manchester
United shot-stopper denied
both Zohore, whose header
deflected off Glenn Whelan,
and then Callum Paterson in
quick succession.
Johnstone was called into
action again in the 56th
minute, saving with his legs
from Zohore.
Villa improved late on as
ROBINS ROCK BLUES
Bristol City 3 Birm’gham 1
BRISTOL CITY scored a
first win over Birmingham
since 1993 to keep their
play-off dreams alive.
The Robins had gone 14
games without beating the
Blues, but Marlon Pack’s
free-kick put them ahead
in the 12th minute. Bobby
Reid (left) cracked in a
second on the volley,
before Lukas Jutkiewicz
thumped in a 34th-minute
goal for Birmingham.
Sub Matty Taylor sealed
the Robins’ triumph six
minutes from time.
Conor Hourihane poked wide,
to the obvious frustration of
boss Steve Bruce.
Then after Johnstone made
another terrific save from
Mendez-Laing’s piledriver,
Grealish became the hero.
Grealish, so important to
Villa, fired in his third of the
season with his right foot in
front of the Holte End six
minutes from time.

Burton 0 Hull 5
NIGEL CLOUGH needs a miracle
now to prevent Burton Albion
crashing into League One.
His Brewers are marooned at
the foot of the table – seven
points away from safety – after
Hull hit them with a vengeance.
And nobody gave the home
fans the hump more than
two-goal Kamil Grosicki.
Tigers boss Nigel Adkins saw
Harry Wilson pounce with a
20-yarder and Grosicki add a
second goal before half-time.
It was 3-0 when David Meyler
scored from the penalty spot
before Grosicki struck again and
sub Will Keane made it five.
RANGERS RUSH

QPR 4 Sheff Wed 2
QPR gave a fitting tribute to
their former player and manager
Ray Wilkins.
There was a ceremony before
kick-off for the Loftus Road
legend, who died last week.
And the minute’s ovation had
barely ended down before
Rangers were three up.
Paul Smyth struck on eight
minutes, Jake Bidwell added a
second and Idrissa Sylla made it
3-0 after 15 minutes. Sylla
claimed his second after the
break. Fernando Forestieri pulled
a goal back for Wednesday
before Atdhe Nuhiu headed in.
HEN PARTY FOR BEES
Forest 0 Brentford 1
HENRIK DALSGAARD fired in
his first goal this season to keep
Brentford’s top-six hopes alive.
The Denmark full-back
popped up unmarked in the
81st minute to nod Josh
McEachran’s corner past
Nottingham Forest keeper
Costel Pantilimon. City Ground
boss Aitor Karanka (left) saw
his side create the better
chances, but they could not
prevent their goal drought
extending to over nine hours.
Forest hit the woodwork
twice in the first half with Ben
Brereton striking the bar. And
Adlene Guedioura’s shot also
glanced off a post.
Sunderland 1 Norwich 1
BY SIMON BIRD
IVO PINTO dealt a last-gasp
hammer blow to Sunderland
– just as the Wearsiders had
sparked some hope in their
survival battle.
Typical Sunderland. George
Honeyman struck in the second
half and with a minute left they
looked to be four points from
safety with four games to go.
Then they threw it away,
Pinto scoring to give Norwich a
deserved point and all but
extinguish the Black Cats’
chance of staying up.
Local lad Honeyman prodded
home after Aiden McGeady’s
shot hit a post, with the
Canaries having wasted half a
dozen chances.
Sunderland are now six
points adrift and have fellow
strugglers Reading and Burton
up next.
They could have been ahead
in the 40th minute when Grant
Hanley brought down Fletcher
in the Norwich box after Adam
Ma tt h e w s r o b b e d We s
Houlahan.
McGeady stepped up to take
the spot-kick, but failed to
convert.
Sunderland’s Liverpool
loanee Ovie Ejaria then blew a
brilliant chance. He went clean
and had plenty of time but froze
and was tackled.
Norwich tore Sunderland
apart for half an hour. Nelson
Oliveira could have had two,
hitting a post with a header and
scuffing across goal at the back
post.
Sunderland are too easy to
outrun and do not have the
speed or muscle to live with
most of their Championship
rivals, but fought well after the
break.
James Maddison dinked a
wonderful pass to Josh Murphy
who flicked over Lee Camp and
onto the roof of the Sunderland
net.
Oliveira squandered his
fourth chance by curling wide
on 56 minutes. Then he created
an opening which Maddison
missed from a tight angle.

STEF TAKES STEP
CLOSER TO PREM
Fulham 1 Reading 0
STEFAN JOHANSEN fired Fulham
into the top two for the first time
as their march towards the
Premier League continued.
The Cottagers extended their
club record unbeaten stint to 20
games as they leapfrogged
Cardiff into the automatic places.
Ryan Sessegnon and Jon Dadi
Bodvarsson traded early strikes
off the line before Johansen
(above) broke the deadlock with
his eighth goal of the season.
The hosts could have extended
their lead when Aleksandar
Mitrovic glanced a header wide
before the Serb, Johansen and
sub Neeskens Kebano all spurned
good chances after the break.
The Royals’ Leandro Bacuna
saw red in stoppage time for a
horror lunge on Sessegnon.

opening goal
for Sunderland
KNUDSEN USES HIS HEAD
Ipswich 1 Barnsley 0
JONAS KNUDSEN netted his first
goal of the season for Ipswich, as
manager Mick McCarthy quit the
club with immediate effect.
Knudsen broke the deadlock in
the 54th minute, after struggling
Barnsley had begun strongly.
The Tykes had a goal disallowed
before the break when ‘scorer’
Lloyd Isgrove was flagged offside.
And Knudsen (left) made them
pay by heading home from
Mustapha Carayol’s corner.
McCarthy had planned to leave
Town at the end of the season, but
the club announced his departure
on Twitter after the game.
EVANS’ SALVOS
DESTROY BORO
Sheff Utd 2 Boro 1
TWO stunning volleys from Lee
Evans helped Sheffield United
keep their play-off hopes alive
and rocked Middlesbrough’s.
A peach of a 20-yard strike by
the midfielder (above) gave the
Blades a second-minute lead.
Things got worse for the
visitors on 25 minutes when
Grant Leadbitter was sent off for
a second yellow card.
And, in a first half to forget for
Tony Pulis’s men, Evans volleyed
home again after excellent work
from youngster David Brooks.
Daniel Ayala pulled a goal back
for Boro on 48 minutes, slotting
home Stewart Downing’s freekick, but United held on for a
crucial victory.
LIONS ROAR INTO TOP SIX
Bolton 0 Millwall 2
BY TOM MASTON
MILLWALL moved another step
closer to earning a play-off place as
victory at struggling Bolton saw
them climb into the top six.
Striker Tom Elliott (far left) got the
ball rolling for manager Neil Harris’s
side as he headed home Ben
Marshall’s cross on 34 minutes. And
Marshall ensured the Lions’
unbeaten run would stretch to 16
games after the break, sweeping
home Mahlon Romeo’s cut-back.
The Trotters rarely looked like
finding a way back into the game,
with their fourth straight defeat
leaving Phil Parkinson’s side just two
points above the drop zone, ahead of
Saturday’s showdown with Barnsley.

PEP TALK
IS DISMISSED
Guardiola was left
fuming with the
officials at half-time
and was sent to
the stands
Sad Guardiola
lost the plot...
and then
the match
FROM his position in the
posh seats, Pep Guardiola
stared into the distance,
glassy-eyed.
His faint hopes of a perfect
gam e had just b een
punctured by Mo Salah and,
under the terms of his
banishment, he could do
little to reinflate them.
Behind the blankness, he
might have been regretting
the outburst that took him
from the technical area,
caused by a poor decision
that denied Leroy Sane a
second City goal (left).
He might have
been wondering if
his touchline
presence could
have staved off the
inevitable drop in
intensity.
He might have
been drifting
mentally towards
the
future,
wondering how
long he himself
can maintain this
level of commitment.
Guardiola lost it,

BY LA LIGA
STRUGGLES
Real Madrid (3) v Juventus (0)
Quarter-final 2nd leg: KO 7.45pm
REAL MADRID are poised to reach the
Champions League semi-finals for the
eighth year in a row, despite their
wretched domestic form.
Inspired by a sensational overhead
kick from Cristiano Ronaldo (above)
they are in control of the
ti against Juventus
tie
a on course to lift
and
the trophy for the
fourth time in five
s
seasons.
But in La Liga they
f
are fourth
and 15 points
behind Barcelona, leaving boss
Zinedine Zidane (circle) baffled.
“I don’t have an explanation,” he said.
“We always want to win everything but
sometimes, like this year, we’re not
consistent. We had some difficult times,
especially with scoring goals.
“We are much better in every aspect
now, although I can’t explain why.”
While Real have dominated in Europe,
they have one La Liga title in six years.
Juve will be without the suspended
Paulo Dybala and Rodrigo Bentancur.
ANDY DUNN
Chief Sports Writer
big time, in every sense. Lost
it with the beleaguered and
befuddled referee, lost the
plot, lost the tie, even lost the
game. Lost his control, like
those with such evangelical
commitment do.
To see those glassy eyes as
City’s demonic first-half
efforts were reduced to
rubble by Salah – and then
Roberto Firmino – was to
understand why Guardiola is
a man who needs a break
now and again.
Despite this night of
disappointment, despite
what looks a crushing twolegged defeat, there will not
be a single City supporter
who hopes that moment
happens any time soon.
The songs of home
support that rang out as the
tie somehow panned out
into comfortable Liverpool
success were for one man’s
benefit.
Because in defeat, there
was still an intensity that
came from that one man.
There was still an
adv enture thatt
came from that
one man.
There was still a
relentless attacking
at
commitment that
came from that one
man.
Sure, he lost it, and not for
the first time.
But if he had not already
over the course of this
season, he must have won
respect, must have won the
minds of many a neutral,
even in a 5-1 aggregate
hammering. With City’s
inflated level of investment,
elimination at the
quarter-final stages of the
Champions League borders
on underachievement.
The Premier League
sh
should be won in
rrelative style but
tthat solitary trinket
will still feel like
scant return for a
team
that
th
threatened some
sort oof domination.
Yet the first half still
showed why Guardiola will
be cherished here as long as
he stays.
It showed why City
supporters will want him to
put pen to that contract
extension that is waiting for
him and that will take him
beyond another year. Oddly,
on occasion of emphatic loss,
those fans seemed to
appreciate what Guardiola
has tried to do at the Etihad
more than they have done for
a while.
At least for a while, there
was a feeling inside the
stadium that matched the
most vibrant in Europe.
There was little hint of it
ahead of the game.
Let’s face it, no one is
intimidated by a few plastic
flags left on the seats but
what really plugs stadium
atmospheres into the mains
is performance, intensity of
performance.
There should have been no
doubting City’s commitment
but it was still eye-popping.
Throw in the sub two-minute
opener from Gabriel Jesus
(left) and you had a buzz that
passes for febrile in these
parts.
Guardiola certainly had his
players at their most febrile
and only a lack of composure
kept another player off the
scoresheet – a lack of
composure and the inability
of referee Antonio Mateu
Lahoz to spot James Milner
had set up Sane for a second,
erroneously chalked off for
offside.
Cue Guardiola’s rage, cue
Lahoz’s glee in despatching
him to the stand, cue City’s
deflation, cue comfortable
Liverpool progression.
Guardiola could be bitter
about marginal decisions
over the two legs.
But he knows that would
be hiding from the truth.
They were not clinical
enough and did not defend
well enough.
Those are long-term issues
for Guardiola to address.
No matter how painful this
setback, every City fan will be
praying he is around for the
long term to address them.
Arjen: We can
still be Robbed
Bayern Munich (2) v Sevilla (1)
Quarter-final 2nd leg: KO 7.45pm
ARJEN ROBBEN has warned newlycrowned German champions Bayern
Munich to beware complacency.
Bayern won the Bundesliga title at
the weekend, with five games to
spare, and hold the
a
advantage over Sevilla
after a 2-1 first leg
win in Spain.
But winger
Robben (above) said:
“It is now that we
have to be careful.
There is already a lot of talk
about the semi-final, but let us first
play a great game and advance.
“Sevilla have shown what they can
do away from home. If we want to
win the Champions League, then we
will have to improve.”

City threatened a perfect storm of goals, but Liverpool
BY JOHN CROSS
Chief Football Writer
WE NEVER thought they
would be able to trump last
week’s game. But the sequel
was even better.
It was breathless and
brilliant in equal measure as
Manchester City gave everything - and somehow Liverpool
triumphed after an incredible
white-knuckle ride.
Typically it was Mohamed
Salah with his 39th goal of the
season which proved decisive
at a time when Liverpool were
on the canvas never mind the
ropes. Roberto Firmino got a
second late on but the tie was
already Liverpool’s by then.
Salah’s goal was magical,
brilliantly executed, what he
has been doing all season and,
at this rate, he could carry
them to Champions League
glory in Kiev next month.
But that only tells half the
story about a game full of
controversy, incident and
drama with Pep Guardiola sent
to the stands in fury after
seeing City robbed of a
perfectly good goal which really
would have put Liverpool on
the rack. Little wonder that he
lost the plot because it was a
bad decision and his City
players gave everything, they
deserved more and yet
ultimately could not match
Liverpool’s brilliance at Anfield
six days earlier.
In the space of a week, City’s
magnificent season has taken
a terrible turn as they blew
winning the title in the
Manchester derby on Saturday
and are now out of the
Champions League.
Maybe, just maybe, it was
Liverpool’s history, their
European pedigree which
ultimately carried them
through because this was as
tough as it could get. And now
no-one will fancy getting them
in Friday’s semi final draw.
City threw the kitchen sink
at Liverpool in the first half.
They hit the post, laid siege
to the visitors’ penalty box and
it must have been pure torture
for Reds’ boss Jurgen Klopp on
the touchline.
City made a start every bit as
fast as Liverpool at Anfield last
week. Guardiola’s gamble of
playing three at the back
looked risky but it quickly
reaped rewards because their
high-octane football left
Klopp’s men unsure whether to
stick or twist.
If anyone had any doubts as
to whether City believed they
could do it, they disappeared
within two minutes.
Virgil van Dijk screamed foul
as Raheem Sterling challenged
him after the ball had gone –
giant defender against pintsized winger seemed a
mismatch – and suddenly
David Silva and Fernandinho
combined brilliantly to launch

KLOPP
were the ones who struck the KO blows
a counter-attack. Sterling
squared it to Gabriel Jesus and
the Brazil striker slotted the
ball into the bottom corner
with a brilliantly clinical finish.
Suddenly the roof came off
the Etihad. City had lit the blue
touch paper as Guardiola got
his dream start.
From then on, City’s pressure
was relentless and Leroy Sane,
Sterling and Jesus went close.
Bernardo Silva crashed a
shot against the post and then
City were robbed of a perfectly
good second goal after 42
minutes. Spanish referee
Antonio Mateu Lahoz and his
linesman ruled Sane’s effort
offside when Liverpool’s James
Milner got a vital touch.
Lahoz has history with City,
he has refereed two Blues’
games before, giving three
penalties, and that was more
than enough for Guardiola,
whose protestations as the
teams left the pitch at half-time
saw him sent to the stands for
the second half.
Guardiola’s absence from the
touchline was crucial. City lost
hope and direction. And when
Salah scored in the 56th
minute, it was all over. Sadioo
Mane raced into the box, wentt
round Ederson, and with thee
h
ball running loose, Salah
slotted home an ice-cool finish..
Guardiola put his head in hiss
hands in the stands, the energyy
d
drained out of the stadium and
d
Liverpool were gifted a second
after 77 minutes.
Nicolas Otamendi’s sloppyy
d
pass let in Firmino who raced
n
through and fired past Ederson
(right) as the Liverpool fanss
d
behind that goal celebrated
wildly as they dreamed of a
sixth European Cup.
Liverpool recovered from conceding
a early goal to book their place in the
semi-finals.
Salah said: “City were pressing
very high and had many chances, but
we came back and played hard and
the win was deserved.
“I try to play for the team and try
and score in each game – that’s the
most important thing for me.”
Team-mate James Milner added:
“They’re a good team and were
always going to put us under
pressure. They had chances but that
shows a lot about how we came out
in the second half.
“Maybe it woke us up to concede
that early, it says a lot about the
boys coming under that pressure in
first half and in the second half last
week. In the second half today we
got hold of it slightly more.
“Everyone knows how good
Manchester City are so to beat them
is a good confidence builder but we
have to be better in the next round.
“We got about them a bit more in
the second half, kept the ball slightly
better, and were more composed.”
Guardiola was furious City were
denied a legitimate first-half goal
when Leroy Sane was ruled offside
and raced on to the pitch to vent his
frustration at Lahoz.
The Blues boss was dismissed
after confronting Lahoz before Salah
and Firmino ultimately ended any
hope of a stunning City comeback.
Sane turned the ball home, only to
see the effort ruled out, although TV
replays showed the ball had been
p
y back by
y Milner and the goal
g
played
should have stood.
sh
ROMA produced a shock
comeback with a late goal
from Konstantinos Manolas
to knock out Barcelona.
Manolas rose to head
home a corner seven
minutes from time as the
Italians recovered a threegoal first-leg deficit to stun
Lionel Messi’s side.
There was no suggestion
Barcelona were taking it as
read they had done all that
was needed in the first leg,
with Andres Iniesta, Luis
Suarez and Messi all in the
starting line-up.
But they were rocked
after six minutes when Edin
Dzeko, who scored the
consolation at the Nou
Camp, stole in behind the
defence and steered home
to offer Roma some hope.
Early in the second half,
the home side moved to a
goal of going through when
Gerard Pique hauled down
Dzeko in the box and
Daniele de Rossi expertly
converted from the spot.
Ter Stegen kept them in
the tie 11 minutes from time
when Stephan El
Shaarawy’s acrobatic effort
was clawed away by the
Germany keeper.
But he was helpless four
minutes later when
Manolas met Cengiz
Under’s corner and headed
in to send Roma through.
Martial: I

FROM BACK PAGE
cannot be persuaded to
stay. Reports from France
also claim Martial’s
representatives told the
club he wants a move at
the end of the season.
The France forward –
who has a year left on his
current contract – has
started just twice since
Alexis Sanchez’s arrival
from Arsenal in January.
Although Martial was
recalled for France, he fears
his lack of starts could cost
him his World Cup place.
He joined from Monaco
for £36million in summer
2015 and has 24 Premier
League goals. One more
would trigger an £8m
payment to Monaco as part
of the transfer deal.
