Prince William and
Kate take their
perfect little Prince
home yesterday
and couldn’t
contain their pride
as they left the
hospital in London
THE Duke and Duchess of Cambridge showed off their newborn
son last night, with William quipping: “Thrice the worry now!”
Seven hours after giving birth
and looking immaculate in a vibrant
red Jenny Packham dress with a
white lace collar, Kate gave the
world a first glimpse of their third
child, a new Prince of Cambridge.
His name is likely to be announced
within the next 48 hours.
Standing on the steps of the private Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital, in Paddington, west London,
Kate cradled her new son who was

wrapped in a white lace shawl with
a matching hat and moved his tiny
fingers. Her outfit was a patriotic
red and white as she made her first
public appearance with her St
George’s Day baby.
Minutes after the brief photocall,
the couple headed home with William emerging with his son in a car
seat and holding Kate’s hand.
“Thrice the worry now,” a smiling
William said, holding up three fingers. Earlier, he had brought Prince
George, four, and Princess Charlotte, who turns three on May 2, to
see their new brother.
Asked how they felt, he said:
“They’re
very
happy.
We’re
delighted.”
Kate, 36, gave birth to the 8lb 7oz
baby boy at 11.01am after being
admitted to hospital just before
6am yesterday in the early stage of
labour.
“We didn’t keep you waiting too
long this time,” William told reporters afterwards.
Asked whether they had decided
on a name, the second in line to the
throne added: “You’ll find out soon
enough.” William, 35, is expected to
spend much of the next fortnight at
home on what is effectively paternity leave although palace officials
declined to use the term.
A spokesman said: “He has got
some meetings in the next week
but for the next couple of weeks his
focus will be on supporting his wife
and family. He will be focusing on
supporting the Duchess.”
He and Kate already have the
help of a Spanish nanny, Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo, and have no
plans to employ any extra help in
the foreseeable future, according to
Kensington Palace. She has often
dressed George and Charlotte in
Spanish clothes but for the new
baby’s first public appearance yesterday the Cambridges stuck to
royal tradition.
His shawl was from GH Hurt &
Son Ltd, a company with longstanding connections to the Royal
Family. Other royals who had the
firm’s shawls include William,
George and Charlotte.
The news of the baby’s birth and
the appearance of the family drew
cheers from a crowd of well-wishers,

including some hard-core royal fans
who had been camped outside the
hospital for up to 15 days.
During their visit it was George, a
future King, who looked apprehensive in front of a bank of photographers and television cameras, while
confident Charlotte turned to wave
at the press as she led the way up
the steps holding her father’s hand.
Kensington Palace said: “Their
Royal Highnesses would like to
thank all staff at the hospital for the
care and treatment they have
received. They would also like to
thank everyone for their warm
wishes.” The palace said the baby’s
name would be “announced in due
course”, but Arthur is already the
favourite with punters, according
to the bookies.
Other predictions include Philip,
after the Duke of Edinburgh, as well
as James, Frederick and Albert.
The new Prince is fifth in line to
the throne, pushing Prince Harry
down to sixth, and he is the Queen
and the Duke of Edinburgh’s sixth

great-grandchild. He will be the
first boy in the immediate line of
succession not to leapfrog a sister.
A change in the law, which came
into force in 2015 but was backdated to 2011, gave girls and boys
equal rights – meaning Princess
Charlotte will remain fourth in line
to the throne.
In a statement, Kensington Palace said: “Her Royal Highness the
Duchess of Cambridge was safely
delivered of a son at 1101hrs.
“The baby weighs 8lb 7oz. The
Duke of Cambridge was present for
the birth. The Queen, the Duke of
Edinburgh, the Prince of Wales, the
Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry
and members of both families have
been informed and are delighted
with the news.
“Her Royal Highness and her
child are both doing well.”
As with Kate’s previous two
pregnancies, the couple had no
idea of the baby’s sex before the
birth.
Celebrities and politicians sent
their best wishes to the Duke and
Duchess on social media.
Prime Minister Theresa May sent
her “warmest congratulations to
the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on the birth of their baby
boy.” She added: “I wish them great
happiness for the future.”
Mayor of London Sadiq Khan
tweeted: “On behalf of Londoners, I
want to send our warmest congratulations to the Duke & Duchess of
Cambridge on the birth of their
baby boy.”
TV star Holly Willoughby said on
Instagram: “Welcome to the world
little prince.”
Comedian
David
Walliams
quipped: “Prince Harry just got

All change as the Cambridge
ANALYSIS

RICHARD PALMER
Royal Correspondent
A THIRD child will bring a new pattern to life inside the Cambridge
family as William and Kate seek to
map out their plans for the future.
Of course their second son’s life
will already be mapped out to some
extent.
That means education at Eton or
another public school, a spell in the
Armed Forces, charity work and
then a gradual introduction to royal
duties.
But his arrival will also bring
changes for his parents and have
implications for Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and any children they
have after their May 19 marriage.
Harry, 33, now drops to sixth in
line to the throne and he may yet
fall another place. “I bet William
will have four,” Princess Diana’s
confidant Paul Burrell told the
Daily Express last week. It would
be foolish to bet against that.
If and when Harry and Meghan
have children, they will be so far
down the line of succession, it is
hard to see them being expected to
work full-time on royal duties.
It is more likely, in an era of
slimmed-down monarchies across
Europe, that they will be free – and
expected – to choose careers outside The Firm.
Harry will always be King
Charles’s second son and then King
William’s only brother so will always
have an official role to play, but that
is unlikely for his children.
Increasingly the focus will be on
the Cambridge branch of the family.
For William, 35, that means an
increasing number of duties.
Finally, following the Duke of
Edinburgh’s retirement last year,
William has settled down to fulltime royal work after years of
putting off the inevitable.
After the Army, he joined the RAF
and then became a part-time airambulance helicopter pilot, basing
himself at Anmer Hall in Norfolk
because he and Kate disliked the
pressure-cooker atmosphere of liv-

CHARLOTTE 8lb 3oz

ing in a gilded cage at Kensington
Palace. There £4.5million of taxpayers’ money had been spent on refurbishing a 21-room apartment.
Critics inside the Royal Household said they wanted to live like
“turnip toffs”, referring to some of
their wealthy East Anglian farming
friends. But although 10-bedroom
Anmer Hall will remain their country bolthole, Kensington Palace will
be their base from now on.
Quite when Kate, 36, will take up
full-time royal duties remains to be
seen, however. “She will attend family events over the summer but will
not return to official duties until the
autumn, depending on what happens with the baby,” one senior aide
said. “But for the foreseeable future,
her primary focus will remain her
children.”
She has been organising her royal
engagements around her children,
LUCKY NUMBER 3:
PAGES 8 & 9
often taking them to school and
nursery and picking them up. She
attends meetings or to her duties in
the middle of the day or after the
children have had their supper.
Kate has the support of a formidable full-time nanny in Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo but will want
to be just as much a hands-on
mother with her third child as she
was with her first two.
That has prompted criticism
from some, including feminists, who
believe that as a role model with
support, she should do more as a
working woman.
But others counter that if feminism means anything, surely it
means the right for a wealthy
woman to choose if she works fulltime or not and to spend more time
with her children?
Kate too can point to the powerful work she has undertaken to
focus attention on problems such
as addiction and family breakdown.
There will be much more of that to
come.
Now the guessing game begins

Charles and William’s middle
names. It was also a middle name
of the Queen’s father, George VI.
Once popular, the name fell out
of fashion but has had a revival.
Former prime minister David
Cameron has a son called Arthur.
By choosing Albert or “Bertie”
for a boy, William and Kate would
again be honouring the Queen’s
father, who was Albert Frederick
Arthur George, but was known to
his family as Bertie.
A Prince Frederick of Cambridge
would have a historical link to the
1st Duke of Cambridge. Prince
Adolphus Frederick lived from
1774 to 1850 and was a son of
George III.
William may also want to pay
tribute to his father by calling his
son Charles, but perhaps only as a
middle name as it may be
considered too similar to their
daughter Charlotte.
James could be chosen after
Kate’s brother, James Middleton.

Arthur
ARTHUR, Albert and Philip are all
thought to be in the running for
the new royal baby’s name.
As is tradition, the Duke and
Duchess of Cambridge have not
immediately announced the
chosen name of their third child
and second son.
They are likely to wait until they
have informed the Queen and the
rest of their family.
Historian Judith Rowbotham
predicted William and Kate would
pick Philip for the new baby
Prince, in tribute to the Duke of
Edinburgh. Both Charles and
William also have Philip as a
middle name.
“I strongly suspect that Philip
will be either a first or a second
name,” she said.
“It’s plain that they like the
Germanic sounding names but at
the same time they’re looking
within the Windsor traditions.”
Arthur is the bookmakers’
favourite for a boy, followed
by Albert.
Arthur is also one of both

Why it’s lucky to be the No 3
KATE and William’s newborn prince
is perfectly placed for a happy childhood and well-balanced future as
an expert revealed yesterday that
third-borns enjoy a special place in
the family.
The Duchess of Cambridge gave
birth to her as yet unnamed son
yesterday at St Mary’s Hospital,
Paddington.
The new baby is a brother for
Prince George, four, and Princess
Charlotte, two, and is fifth in line to
the throne.
Psychologist Linda Blair said
that, by the third baby, parents are
increasingly likely to be more
relaxed and more confident which
By Gillian Crawley
will benefit Kate and William’s
latest arrival.
“You get wiser parents with each
child. So third-borns grow up with
more relaxed boundaries. These
are the children most likely to
be creative and risk-takers.
They can try anything. That
third kid has lots of people to
look up to,” she said.
Linda, who has three children, said she too was much
more relaxed with her third. “I
was more able to enjoy the
Loyal Cara Delevingne
good times rather than getting
anxious about what might be going
on. You also become more able to
delegate and ask for help.”
She added that as parents with
larger families need to spread their
time around, their children learn
to rely on each other which
may help them in forming
relationships
with
their
peers.
“Your relationship with
your siblings forms the way
you react with social groups
for the rest of your life,” said
Linda.
Former prime minister David Cameron is
the third of four children and has
said that growing up he lived in the
shadow of his older brother Alexander, who is a barrister.
But supermodel and actress Cara
Delevingne is fiercely loyal to her
two older sisters Poppy and Chloe,
saying: “Put it this way, if one of
them killed someone I would help
bury the body.”
Comedian and actor Billy Crystal
– 5ft 7ins – loved being the youngest
of three, saying: “The only thing I
was moody about was that one
brother is 6ft 2in and the other one
is 5ft 10in.”
According to latest figures from
the Office for National Statistics,
IF I am anything to go by, three
will turn out to be the magic
number for Kate and William’s new
little prince.
I was born the youngest of three
siblings, with a big age gap
between me and my elder brother
and sister, so by the time I came
along you could say my parents
were old hands.
According to my mother the first
example of their relaxed style of
parenting came when I had my
first check-up at a few weeks old.
Born a hefty 9lbs 11oz, a nurse
told my mother that I’d lost a
couple of ounces and asked
whether she would like to see the
doctor about it. The answer, not
unkind but practical, was: “Why?
Is he going to give it back?”
That set the tone for the whole
of my childhood – they were
protective and loving and though
I always knew I was precious to
them, they didn’t treat me like
I would break.
Aged 40 and 46 they were also
older than average but they turned
out to be far more lenient than my
friends’ parents.
When friends told of teenage
battles over clothes and boys
I didn’t know what to say except
smile and nod. The truth was
those things never happened to
me – not because I was an
especially good little girl but more
because my parents had learned
to relax about the small stuff and
save their energy for the big
there were 696,271 live births in
2016. Of these 100,359 were thirdborn children.
There have been numerous studies around birth order: some say
first-born children may be more
likely to be overweight while another
study said older siblings are smarter
on average.
There are certain drawbacks to
being a family of five which may not
affect the Cambridges: certain benefit payments are limited to the first
two children; outings may be more
expensive as family tickets are often
restricted to two adults and two
children; and extra child-safety
seats may necessitate a bigger car.
COMMENT

Daily Express writer
battles. Because there is a big gap
between me and my elder brother
and sister, their biggest concern
at first was that I should make
friends with contemporaries.
Gymnastics, Girls’ Brigade,
swimming, horse riding – I was
signed up for the lot. I stuck at
some of them, though my few
ballet lessons tell me that I am
never likely to trouble the line-up
for Strictly but in the end it didn’t
matter. My parents’ quiet
confidence instilled in me a
confidence of my own, there was
nothing I could not do.
I find it hard to put my finger on
exactly what their secret was. It
wasn’t benign neglect, or “child
wrangling” that I hear some
people glibly boast about when
saying how they deal with three or
more children.
They knew where I was, how
I was doing at school, whom my
friends were and more importantly
who’d picked on me. Maybe what
was so special was because I was
allowed to just be me.
Some people think winning at
life is always being first. But I can
tell the young prince that coming
third is the best position.

the royal mothers in Red...Kate’s nod to diana
Pictures: neil mockford / gc, alpha
Joyful William and Kate with their new baby outside St Mary’s Hospital yesterday
While most women would be
taking it easy in the hours after
giving birth, the Duchess of
Cambridge has wasted no time
in getting back to her glamorous
self – merely seven hours after
the arrival of the couple’s third
child.
As a mother-of-three Kate
clearly knows how to dress her
postpartum body: she has worn
similar loose fitting shifts for
photo calls following the births
of both Prince George and
Prince Charlotte.
Given that it was St George’s
Day the Duchess chose a
suitably patriotic red kneelength dress while her husband
Prince William chose a smart
casual blue ensemble. And the
latest baby Cambridge was
wrapped up warm in a snug
white outfit with matching
bonnet as they emerged on to
the steps of the Lindo Wing.
As with both previous births,
the Duchess once again turned
to British designer Jenny
Packham for a bespoke dress.
Looking regal in red, the loose
style skimmed over any postpregnancy bumps with the
pretty collar drawing eyes up
Charles and Diana with baby Harry at St Mary’s in 1984. Inset, William lends a hand to Kate in her heels yesterday

towards her perfectly coiffed
hair and immaculate make-up.
The Duchess finished her
outfit with a pair of nude suede
high heels from Gianvito Rossi.
Priced at £495 they are a
celebrity favourite – fellow
mother-of-three Holly
Willoughby is frequently spotted
in an identical pair. No doubt
Kate’s radiant red look will have
royal fashion fans clamouring to
copy her outfit.
However, like the outfits the
Duchess has worn for previous
birth photo calls, the crimson
frock is one of a kind.
Eager royal fashion fans will
no doubt be quick to spot that
Kate’s red dress also bears a
resemblance to the outfit that
Princess Diana wore for the
photo call outside the same
hospital in September 1984
when Prince Harry was born,
even down to the flash of white
detailing at the neckline. Just like
her late mother-in-law many years
before her, Kate looked both chic
and elated as she and Prince
William emerged for a quick wave
to the gathered crowds of
supporters and media who have
been camped out eagerly awaiting
the arrival of the royal couple’s
third child.
If this is how fabulous the
Duchess looks only hours after
delivering the fifth in line to the
throne, we can only imagine how
stunning she will look at her
brother-in-law’s nuptials in less
than a month’s time.

She was only caught after

Carpenter, 89, said he was
“devastated” by the carer’s
betrayal and found watching
video footage “sickening”.
Film showed 65-year-old Pell
stealing cash twice. When she
appeared in court, Mr Carpenter
told magistrates: “If she was
short of money I would have
given her £20.”
Mr Carpenter began paying
carers because he has severe
arthritis and a life-threatening
aneurysm. The pensioner said
the thefts left him feeling
vulnerable.
Mr Carpenter joined the
Merchant Navy in 1943, aged 15.
He took part in the perilous
Arctic convoys and supported
the Allied D-Day landings.
He was one of only 12
survivors when his ship was
torpedoed. He said: “I still have
nightmares about it.”
Pell had been visiting Mr
Carpenter’s home in Spalding,
Lincs, twice a week.
Magistrates told her she had
“betrayed trust” and had
“placed suspicion on other
people who went to the house”.
Pell pleaded guilty to stealing
£50 and was sentenced to a
year-long community order and
150 hours of unpaid community
work.
Mr Carpenter said later: “A
couple of months in the nick
would have done her good.”
His daughter Elaine Davis, a
nurse for more than 35 years,
said: “It disgraces the uniform

Pell, of Pinchbeck, Lincs, was
ordered to pay £50

costs.
Jail for fraudster pair who persuaded
victims to cash in their pension funds
BUSINESSMEN who cheated cash-strapped
pension holders out of £1million and blew
the money on gambling, holidays and cars,
were jailed yesterday.
Anthony Locke, 32, set up a website
called Successful Pensions to attract
people desperate to raise money on their
retirement funds, the court heard.
With the help of Ray King, 54, who “sold”
the scheme to people who registered their
interest online, they offered
applicants an up-front
payment, equivalent to half
of their pension pot.
The remainder was
“invested” in bogus

were described as an occupational pension
plan. Instead the funds were filtered
through offshore accounts and others held
by Locke’s mother Jacqueline Humphreys
and former partner Annabella Willcocks.
Money went on fast cars, like an Aston
Martin Vantage, Porsche 911 and Mercedes
B180, gambling and luxury holidays.
Jurors heard 16
applicants were conned out
of £999,266. They included
people unable to work
through injury, a failing
business owner, a former
wife made homeless after
divorce and parents
looking to renovate their
home. Prosecutor Stephen
Hopper told Southwark Crown Court:
“These people were often in considerable
financial difficulty. Cashing in their pension
scheme was their only option and it was
how Mr Locke and Mr King were able to
persuade them in the first place, and many
did sign up to things that were not true.”
Locke, of Christchurch, Dorest, was jailed
yesterday for five years for fraud by false
representation and money laundering and
disqualified from being a company director
for seven years. King, of Poole, Dorset, was
jailed for three years for fraud by false
representation and disqualified from being
a company director for five years.
Judge David Tomlinson told them: “The
individuals believed they would be left with
half or more of a pension fund to support
them to some extent in retirement and, in
fact, each has been left with nothing.”
THE abuse and neglect of old,
very frail people is appalling
and has been attracting
increased media attention – and
public disgust – for more than a
decade.
And yet examples continue to
regularly appear in the media,
with apparently no end in sight.
Elder abuse involves physical
assault, sexual assault and/or
harassment, coercion, threats
and intimidation, theft and
fraud, and neglect of the most
horrendous types.
These victims suffer the
cruellest of experiences, and in
some cases die.
And yet, too often, this is
labelled simply “poor practice”
in care homes, or just “serious
incidents” in hospitals.
In fact any label rather than
admit that what is being done is
criminal and should be
punished.
In a poll conducted by Action
on Elder Abuse in 2017 almost
10 per cent of older people aged
65 or older said they had
experienced abuse of some
kind, suggesting that one
million older people in the UK
could be victims.
It was worse when others
were asked of the experiences
of elderly people they knew,
with 25.9 per cent (relatives)
and 26.8 per cent (nonrelatives), saying they knew of
loved ones being neglected or
abused. This is an epidemic of
cruelty and suffering, with
victims often too old or
frightened to speak out.
Right
The UK recognises the
special needs of children for
protection, the special needs of
victims of hate crimes, the
special needs of victims of
domestic abuse, and even the
special needs of animals.
But our politicians seem
incapable of taking action to
address the special needs of our
older people.
Fewer than one in 10 cases of
elder abuse reach the attention
of local authority adult
protection systems and, even
when they do, in many cases
there is no investigation.
Even fewer cases make it to
court, with less than 1 per cent
of the estimated total number
of abuse incidents resulting in a
successful prosecution.
And those that do are more
likely to result in community
service or suspended sentences
instead of jail time.
Why do we appear to care so
little about the fate of our
mums and dads?
We need a specific crime of
elder abuse, with appropriate
sentencing to reflect the public
distaste for these wicked acts.
We need the legal right to gain
entry to suspected elder abuse
victims and check they are safe.
And we need the law to act as a
deterrent to stop others from
thinking they can act without
consequences.
There is a silent scream
echoing around the UK from
victims of elder abuse.
When are our politicians
going to do something about it?

THERESA May yesterday firmly
rejected claims that her Government
is set to cave in to Brussels by keeping Britain tied to a customs union
with the EU.
She spoke out after claims her officials had drawn up a blueprint for a
“customs partnership” that would
leave Britain’s ties to the EU virtually unchanged when the Brexit
transition period closes in 2020.
During a local election campaign
visit to the West Midlands yesterday,
Mrs May said: “Coming out of the
customs union means that we will be
free to have those deals – deals that
suit the UK. But I also recognise the
importance to businesses like this of
being able to have as frictionless a
border as possible into the EU.”
The remarks followed reports that
senior Eurosceptic ministers were
ready to warn her against watering
down her Brexit plans at a Cabinet
committee meeting tomorrow.

Fury as peers vote to keep human rights laws
THERESA May’s Brexit plans last
night suffered a fresh defeat after
the House of Lords voted to keep
a key EU human rights charter.
Peers voted by 316 to 245 in
favour of enshrining the EU’s
Charter of Fundamental Rights
into UK law.
The Government was last night
expected to try to overturn the
reversal in a Commons vote next
month.
Ministers had warned that a
proposed amendment to the
Government’s EU Withdrawal Bill
would enshrine “a body of foreign
law” on to Britain’s statute book.
Tory frontbench peer Lord Keen
said: “It would reflect not only a
constitutional outrage but a total
abdication of our responsibilities.”
Later, the Government suffered
another defeat in the Lords when
peers backed an amendment
designed to prevent ministers
from specifying in regulations
when people can bring legal
challenges against the validity of
EU rules transferred into UK law.
Peers voted by 285 to 235 in
favour of the amendment. A
spokesman for the Department for
Exiting the EU said: “We are
disappointed that the House of
Lords has voted for this
amendment in spite of the
assurances we have provided.
“The Charter of Fundamental
rights was never the source of
rights in the UK – it simply
reaffirmed rights that already
existed in EU law.
“We will review this decision
when the Bill returns to the House
of Commons to ensure we deliver
a workable piece of legislation
that provides certainty as we
leave.”
He said: “We have an
unprecedented opportunity
to create a trading
environment that delivers for
our country, our businesses
and our citizens. We expect
to deliver significant results.
“It is the UK’s ambition to
become the world’s foremost
champion of free trade, using
all our economic and
diplomatic influence to
remove barriers and open up
new markets. Our task is to
create the right environment
internationally for our
service trade to thrive.
“Whatever one’s view on
the referendum result, it
must be acknowledged that,
outside the EU, this country
will enjoy a new degree of
economic agility.”

£1million
home in
London
By John Twomey
A WEALTHY antiques dealer said
he strangled his seven-year-old
daughter with a dressing gown cord
to save her the pain of seeing him
go bankrupt, a court heard
yesterday.
Robert Peters told little Sophia
Peters he was “sorry” before
throttling her for 20 minutes, jurors
were told.
He then rang 999 and told the
operator: “There’s been a murder,”
the Old Bailey heard.
Two officers who raced to the
businessman’s £1million home in
Raynes Park, south-west London,
found him standing calmly in the
doorway where he allegedly told
them: “She’s upstairs. I’ve
strangled her.”
They found the little girl
motionless lying in a foetal position
on her bed.
A knotted black fleece dressing
gown cord was wound around her
neck and mouth. The
officers tried to revive
Sophia before she was rushed
to hospital, the court heard.
She was kept on life support but
later died.
After his arrest, Peters allegedly
said: “I’ve had a breakdown.”
Mukul Chawla, prosecuting, said:
“No-one hearing about this case
can fail to be deeply affected by it.”
Peters, 56, denies murder but
admits manslaughter on the
grounds of diminished
responsibility. The court heard
details from Peters’
interview with
detectives.
He told police how when he
walked into his daughter’s room
last November she asked: “What
are you doing?”
Mr Chawla said: “He told her he
was sorry. He said that he manually
strangled her for about 20 minutes
before he felt that she had died.
“During this time, he said that
she had struggled a little bit. He
said that he had been planning to
kill his daughter for weeks because
he had been depressed and could
not go on with life.”
It was his last chance to kill her
because she would soon be
returning to boarding school,
Peters allegedly told police.
Peters told officers he feared
bankruptcy was only a couple of
months away and that he would
“lose everything, including their
home”.
He told a mental health nurse he
planned to kill his wife Krittiya and
Sophia to save them the pain of
seeing him go bankrupt. But, the
court heard, Peters was not in debt,
his mortgages were up to date and
he had money in the bank.
His oriental art business, which
he ran with twin brother Richard in
London’s Kensington, had assets of
£1.3million.
Three-times married Peters was
keeping up £3,333-a-month
mortgage payments on the family
home. He also paid £4,000-a-month
maintenance to his second wife as
well as paying her mortgage with a
£25,000-a-year lump sum on top.
Peters went on to claim he was
driven to kill by “voices in his
head”, the jury was told. But
mention of the “voices” was not
until he had spent five or six days in
custody, said Mr Chawla.
He had met Krittiya – known as
Ya – 10 years earlier in Hong Kong
but had cheated on her for the last
two years.
For six months he lived away from
the family but returned once the
affair ended. The trial continues.

at the service
yesterday
By Cyril Dixon
A MURDERED student’s family
demanded action yesterday to stop
the “shameful” knife craze which
claimed his life.
Sami Sidhom’s grieving relatives
called on justice chiefs to end the
easy access to blades which is fuelling the bloody epidemic.
They spoke out days after 18-yearold Sami was stabbed as he returned
home from watching his favourite
football team.
Their call from the heart came in
the wake of the Daily Express’s crusade to ban shops from selling
deadly blades to teenagers.
Yesterday we exposed the scandal
of retailers all over the country happily selling knives to youngsters
despite the law insisting they must
be 18.
Stephen Lawrence Day to
commemorate tragic teen
By Macer Hall Political Editor
THE anniversary of Stephen
Lawrence’s murder is to be
marked with an annual national
commemoration, Theresa May
announced yesterday.
Mrs May was among a number
of national figures, including
Prince Harry and his fiancee
Meghan Markle, Labour leader
Jeremy Corbyn and Metropolitan
Police Commissioner Cressida
Dick, who joined Stephen’s
parents Doreen and Neville at St
Martin-in-the-Fields church in
central London.
She announced the move at the
service to mark the 25th
anniversary of the killing.
Stephen Lawrence Day, on
April 22, will be an opportunity to
“encourage and support young
people in achieving their
dreams”, as well as a time to
reflect on the tragic youngster’s
life, death and political change he
inspired, the Prime Minister said.
The 18-year-old student was
fatally stabbed by a racist gang in
Eltham, south-east London. The
murder triggered an inquiry that
concluded the Metropolitan
Police had made a series of
blunders in the case and was
guilty of “institutional racism”.
Harry and Ms Markle met
Stephen’s mother, now a Labour
peer, and brother Stuart before
the service. The Prince brought a
message of support from Prince
Charles, who in 2000 gave the
annual Stephen Lawrence
Memorial Lecture.
Mrs May gave a scripture
reading and Mr Corbyn read an
extract from Nelson Mandela’s
Long Walk To Freedom.
The Prime Minister said: “For
Harry and Meghan meet Doreen
Lawrence mother of Stephen, right
the past 25 years, Doreen and
Neville have fought
heroically to ensure that
their son’s life and death will
never be forgotten.”
Reacting to the
announcement of the annual
commemoration last night,
the murdered teenager’s
76-year-old father Neville said:
“That is one of the best things I
have heard for years.
“I think I will sleep peacefully in
my bed tonight.”
Stop shameful knife craze
says tragic victim’s family
Ambushed
In our investigation, shop staff
went ahead with knife sales despite
a crime surge which has led to 97
fatal stabbings this year.
After the Daily Express hit the
newstands, Sami’s family said in a
statement released by Scotland
Yard: “It is shameful that a single
knife is allowed on the street.
“There isn’t a single fathomable
reason why this is still tolerated,
unchecked and unstopped.
“We’ve somehow ended up in a
society where our brightest hopes
are taken before they’ve even
started.
“Those who are responsible for
enforcing the banning of knives in
our streets are also responsible for
his death.
“How many more have to die this
way before everyone cares?
“How many more communities
like ours have to be terrorised by

Law student Sami was on way home
Floral tributes to Sami outside the family home near where he was stabbed
mindless stabbings? Sami, who lived
with his father Saher, 44, and grandmother in Forest Gate, east London,
was murdered as he returned from
watching West Ham play Stoke
City.
The “model son” was stabbed
repeatedly after being set upon by a
gang just yards from his front door,
shortly before 11pm last Monday.
Eyewitnesses
said
he
was
ambushed by two cars carrying a
total of about four men. Neighbours
who saw the attack bravely rushed
to help him, using towels to stem
the bleeding.
The family said: “Sami was a
model son, model student, a dedicated West Ham fan who was studying to be a lawyer to bring fair
play and justice to those who needed
it.
“He never had a chance to do any
of that because he was stabbed in
the back by cowards in the dark. He
was only 18. Someone once said evil
triumphs when good people do
nothing.
“Nothing will bring Sami back,
but we want his killers brought to
justice. We would like to appeal to
everyone – if you have any information, no matter how small it is,
please do tell the police.”
They also paid tribute to neighbours and passers-by who tried in
vain to aid the Queen Mary University of London student.
“We would like to thank everyone
who came to Sami’s aid and comforted him in his final hour,” they
said.
“We are deeply grateful for the
incredible kindness and bravery
that our neighbours, regardless of
their creed, or colour, have shown to
Sami.”
A post-mortem examination yesterday gave the cause of death as
multiple stab wounds.
Detective Chief Inspector Mark
Wrigley said: “This investigation
continues and, while the motive for
this horrific attack still remains
unclear, we are making progress.
“I now appeal to those people in
the community who know what took
place or who is responsible to come
forward and give Sami’s family the
justice they deserve.”
Later yesterday a spokesman for
the Metropolitan Police said:
“Detectives investigating the murder of 18-year-old Sami Sidhom in

Worker ‘killed
his boss and
wrote “bully”
on her head’
By Mark Reynolds
A UNIVERSITY worker who
became obsessed with his
female boss stabbed her to
death and wrote “bully” across
her forehead, a court heard
yesterday.
David Browning is said to
have left Samaritans volunteer
Jillian Howell covered in blood
on her lounge floor after
stabbing her repeatedly in the
chest, neck and abdomen.
Browning stayed in the
house for “several hours”
before dialling 999 around 6am
on October 26 last year to say
he was outside a police station
and had tried to kill himself.
Officers found he had a gun
and a knife but was “calm,
coherent and collected”, jurors
were told. When asked what
happened by the officers, he
replied “I have killed my boss”.
The 52-year-old is accused
of murdering the single
woman, who was his superior
in the University of Brighton
payroll department.
He had formed an “intense
attachment” to Ms Howell
when she tried to help him
with his depression.
Browning directed officers
to Ms Howell’s Brighton home
where they found her body
with the word bully scrawled
across her forehead and
graffiti across the walls.
The married father of two
denies murder but admits
manslaughter by diminished
responsibility, claiming his
actions were prompted by
depression brought on by his
father’s death a year earlier.
Prosecutor Alan Gardner
told the court Browning had
worked in the payroll
department since 1989 and
first met Ms Howell when she
joined as a manager in 2015.
He was her deputy and had
“expressed unhappiness” at
her management style but the
pair became friends and
started seeing each other from
June last year, Hove Crown
Court in East Sussex heard.
Ms Howell told friends she
was trying to “cheer up” a
colleague by inviting him for
dinner and hoped her
experience with the suicide
support charity would help.
Mr Gardner said Browning
bought her gifts and flowers.
In text messages Browning
described her as “stunning”
and another said: “I adore you
personally and professionally”.

after he demanded she “must

her”, Mr Gardner said.
Browning, of Seaford, East
Sussex, claimed he suffered an
“abnormality of function” but
Mr Gardner branded it a
“premeditated, cold blooded
murder”.
Browning claims he stabbed
Ms Howell after she urged him
to go to hospital when he said
he had posted suicide notes.
Graffiti on the walls,
allegedly written by Browning,
tried to implicate her close
friend Sean McDonald – a
former mayor of Worthing.
Mr Gardner called it a
“carefully planned murder out
of jealously and out of anger”.
The trial continues.

AN ANGRY mob yesterday tried to
storm the children’s hospital where
terminally ill Alfie Evans is being
treated.
Dozens of people protesting against
the decision to withdraw life support
from the 23-month-old had earlier
blocked a road outside the hospital
before they made a dash for the main
entrance after a final legal appeal to
continue treatment was lost.
The self-styled “Alfie’s Army” left
NHS doctors and nurses terrified and
forced police to blockade the entrance
to Alder Hey Hospital in Liverpool.
Earlier, the European Court of
Human Rights announced that it will
not allow Alfie’s parents – Tom Evans,
21, and Kate James, 20 – to appeal
against a British court ruling backing
the doctors’ decision to turn off his life
support system.
Mr Evans had told his supporters:
“They’re telling me that my son is
going to be dead and I’ve got no say
over the matter.”
At first crowds gathered outside the
Liverpool hospital where Alfie is being
treated for a degenerative neurological
condition. But Merseyside Police had
to step in as some protesters then tried
to storm the hospital, barricading the
entrance and forcing others in the
crowd to withdraw to the main road
after a plea from organisers.
About 50 people linked arms, chanting ‘Save Alfie Evans’ after Alfie’s dad
spoke to them. He has vowed: “We will
not give up. We will continue to fight,
by all means available to us within the
law, to save our son’s life.”
At about 6pm last night it was
announced that Alfie had been granted
Italian citizenship.
The Italian foreign office said it
hopes the terminally ill child will be
allowed “immediate transfer to Italy”.
Mr Evans again spoke briefly to supporters outside the hospital. He said
he hoped his son’s new citizenship
would block any planned withdrawal
of life support.
He added: “I’m stood here now and
Officers block the entrance. Right, Alfie in hospital
Alfie is still here. Why? Because I’m
still fighting and so is Alfie.
“I have been in touch with the
Ambassador of Italy. My son belongs
to Italy. I love Alfie and I love Kate. I
will not give up.”
The Daily Express understands most
of the protest was peaceful, with trouble sparked by a minority.
Only last week consultant paediatrician and ITV doctor Dr Ravi Jayaram
branded Alfie’s Army yobs who
spat on nurses a “17th-century
witch-hunting lynch mob”.
Alfie is said to be in a
“semi-vegetative state”. Specialists at Alder Hey say life
support should stop and
judges have accepted evidence that shows further
treatment would be futile.
Alfie’s parents, from Liverpool, have now lost a string
of legal battles in the
Defiant...Alfie’s father Tom
vowed to never give up
High Court, Court of Appeal, Supreme
Court and European Court.
But in another attempt to save his
boy, Mr Evans is threatening to bring
private prosecutions against Alfie’s
doctors. The couple argue the boy is
being wrongly “detained” and have
made an application to take him away
from the hospital.
It is not known when this will be discussed in court but a similar application was already heard and dismissed by Mr Justice Hayden
in the High Court.
Judges have since approved
plans for withdrawing treatment and bringing Alfie’s life
to an end.

No charge...Amber Rudd
Windrush families
to get UK citizenship
for free says Rudd
By Alison Little
Deputy Political Editor
THOUSANDS of people from the socalled Windrush generation will be
fast-tracked to formal British citizenship as Amber Rudd announced she is
waiving the usual fees.
The pledge comes amid the furore
over the plight of Caribbean nationals
who came to Britain legally between
1948 and 1973 but have lost jobs and
homes, been denied medical treatment and travel documents and been
threatened with deportation.
They were snared by laws aimed at
illegal immigrants when they could
not produce paperwork to prove their
legal status.
Ms Rudd insisted to MPs that
Labour as well as Tory failures had
contributed to the problem.
She declared: “I want to enable the
Windrush generation to acquire the
status they deserve – British citizenship – quickly, at no cost and with
proactive assistance.”
She will waive fees of at least £1,300
charged to those who want to apply
for a passport, and children seeking
British naturalisation, whether or not
they have documentation.
Citizenship applicants from the
group will also be exempted from language and UK customs tests.
Ms Rudd admitted: “We were too
slow to realise there was a group of
‘It’s clear everyone
considers the
Windrush generation
to be British’
people that needed to be treated differently, and the system was too
bureaucratic when these people were
in touch.”
The Tories’ “hostile environment”
policy has come under focus but Ms
Rudd said successive governments
have introduced measures to combat
illegal immigration since the 1980s.
She said: “This is a failure by successive governments to ensure these individuals have the documentation they
need and this is what we must urgently
put right. Because it’s abundantly
clear that everyone considers people
who came in the Windrush generation
to be British.”
People from the Caribbean stuck in
their home countries while visiting for
a holiday after decades of living in the
UK will be helped to return to Britain
as part of “putting this right”.
Labour Shadow Home Secretary
Diane Abbott said MPs and others
had warned for years about the problems for Windrush migrants, but had
been ignored. She said similar problems could be in the pipeline for other
Commonwealth citizens falling foul of
the Tory crackdown.
Labour former minister David
Lammy stressed that every person in
the Caribbean was there because of
the European slave trade and Commonwealth citizens were in the UK
because they were born under the
British empire.
Former children’s TV presenter Baroness Benjamin, a Lib Dem peer who
came to Britain as a child in 1960 from
Trinidad, told the House of Lords:
“The British public are furious at the
Government-created Windrush fiasco.
It’s a matter of national shame.”

NINE people were killed
and 16 injured after a
man drove a van into
pedestrians in the
Canadian city of Toronto
yesterday.
The driver fled the
scene of the suspected
terror attack which
happened at a busy
intersection in the north
of the city.
Emergency crews
received frantic calls
around 1.30pm local
time saying a white
rental van had mounted
the pavement at Yonge
Street and Finch Avenue
East and struck a
number of people.
Police arrested him a
few streets away.
Deputy Chief Peter
Yuen said officers were
investigating the driver
and urged witnesses to
come forward.
Reza Hashemi, who
owns a video shop on
Yonge Street, said he
heard screaming. He
said the driver appeared
to mount the pavement,
run into people, and
return to mount the
pavement again.
Canadian prime
minister Justin Trudeau
said: “Our thoughts are
with all those affected by
the terrible incident.”

‘I’m so angry...this is all a bit late’
A MOTHER of four – who was
told she was an illegal
immigrant last year after a
lifetime of living and paying
taxes in the UK – last night
reacted with frustration to
news of the compensation
for Windrush victims.
Sarah O’Connor, 57, who
moved to Britain from
Jamaica 51 years ago when
she was just six-years-old,
said: “Will it go to everyone
or just a select few?
“I am so angry. Theresa
May introduced this when
she was home secretary, and
all our problems were just
swept under carpet.
“This is all a bit late.”

legally after she lost the
retail job she had held for
almost two decades.
Unable to receive benefits,
Mrs O’Connor, who was
married to a British man for
17 years and has four British
children, was forced to sell
her car and faced bankruptcy.
Meanwhile, the sister of a
Windrush victim who was
forced to miss his mother’s
funeral after being banned
from returning to Britain
said: “It’s time for England to
help us now.”
Doreen Green was
speaking about her brother
who had lived in the UK for
60 years but found himself
unable to get back after
flying to Jamaica to be with
his dying mother.
A MAN suspected of
being the naked gunman
who killed four people at
a restaurant in the US
state of Tennessee is in
custody following a
manhunt.
Police confirmed they
had caught Travis
Reinking, 29, in
connection with the
shooting of four people
on Sunday at the Waffle
House restaurant.
Another customer,
James Shaw Jr, managed
to wrestle a rifle out of
the gunman’s hands,
preventing more people
from losing their lives.
Police said Reinking
was caught in a wooded
area. It is alleged he
opened fire at the
restaurant on Sunday
with an AR-15 rifle,
before discarding his
coat and fleeing naked.
He was discovered
with a handgun and
ammunition, police said.
Around 160 law
enforcement officials
were involved in the
manhunt for the
suspect, who was added
to the list of Top 10 most
wanted fugitives in the
state.
Reinking was arrested
last year after he entered
a restricted area near
the White House.

and generally pretty down in the
dumps. We have had enough of war and
politics. None of the above problems
will go away but today at least we have
something else to think about.
We are not all ardent royalists and few
of us are so enthusiastic about the
Royal Family that we would camp out
for days outside the Lindo Wing where
Kate gave birth. (Though it has been
camping weather). But even the most
staunch republican cannot gainsay the
joy that attends the arrival of a baby.
A baby means hope, a new beginning
and continuity. We greet a new baby in
our own family with this optimism. And
a royal baby points to a continuity in
our country’s long and colourful history.
It is both a symbolic event and a very
intimate one.
The baby boy is also a third child, the
new arrival in an established and happy
family. He will receive plenty of
instruction from his brother and sister
which should keep him grounded.
Meanwhile he also has a place in the
nation’s heart. A little Prince.
This abuse is a hate crime
D
ECENT people have a particular
loathing and disdain for criminals
who cynically target the old and
vulnerable and for those who
abuse them whether they are carers or
relatives. In a poll almost 10 per cent of
people over 65 said they had
experienced abuse of some kind,
meaning that one million have suffered.
Fraud, violence, sexual assault,
coercion, intimidation, you name it. The
increase in the numbers of dementia
sufferers is also a key issue. They are
even more vulnerable.
It is right therefore that this sort of
crime should have a special category as
a hate crime. At present there is no
statutory definition of a crime against
the elderly. If there was then the
public’s horror at this cruelty could be
reflected in sentencing guidelines.

EFT-WINGERS led by
Jeremy Corbyn
condemn the idea of
voters having to
produce identification
at polling stations as an
outrage against minorities but
their real reason for objecting is
that vote rigging benefits them.
It’s no coincidence that electoral
corruption is rife in areas
dominated by Labour.
Evidence of identity is quite
reasonably demanded in many
aspects of life from driving to
merely picking up a package at
the post office. It’s ridiculous that
people can vote by simply stating
that they are who they say they
are without proof.
The Windrush scandal is
appalling but it does not mean
that voter identity should be
scrapped. On the contrary it
shows the need for everyone to
have tangible evidence of their
existence. Personation, vote
stealing and bullying have
no place in our democracy in
which the secret ballot is a
sacred right. Identity cards are
necessary to make the electoral
system honest.

A HARD border between
Northern Ireland and the
Republic would be inconvenient
but it would not be the end of the
world. Britain has a hard border
between us and all the countries
outside the EU but we manage to
trade with them.
EU negotiators are desperate
to stop Brexit but to suggest
that if we leave the customs
union that will trigger a return
to sectarian violence in
Northern Ireland is baseless
scaremongering. As far as I know
trade was never the reason for
the Troubles.
If Britain stays in the customs
union, meaning we can’t do our
own deals outside the EU, Brexit
will be stone dead. Theresa May
should have the courage to tell
Barnier, Juncker and company
to get knotted. The border can
be as hard or soft as the two
Irelands choose and be damned
to the Brussels bullies.
Why can’t it work as it does
between Switzerland, not an EU
member, and its EU neighbours?
I have travelled numerous times
between Swiss Geneva and
France and the border appears to
operate seamlessly.
The people of Britain voted for
Brexit and as the Prime Minister
has often said Brexit must mean
Brexit.

PRINCE Harry’s fiancée
Meghan Markle has been
branded a snob because she
hasn’t invited some of her hillbilly
relatives to the wedding but
I don’t blame her.
Weddings can cause more grief
than funerals when emotions run
high. I will never forget the day
my wife and I were invited to the
nuptials of Eddie the painter’s
daughter.
For a start the groom failed to
turn up and we all waited in the
church for what seemed like
hours with the vicar wringing his
hands and the bride being driven
round repeatedly.
A search party was sent out
and the groom eventually
appeared escorted by two burly
members of the bride’s family.
At the reception the caterer
refused to produce any food until
Eddie paid up in cash.
During the belated feast, fights
broke out on the top table
between the two families with
some of the guests joining in.
Blood flowed over the trifle.
I often wonder whether the
marriage prospered. Let’s hope
the uninvitees don’t turn up and
spoil Meghan’s big day.

surgery cured him of colour

Tom’s affliction was the result of
scarlet fever as a child.
Unfortunately there is still no

OBESITY is the curse of our
times especially among
children but I doubt if the
proposed ban on fast food outlets
near schools will have much
effect. There is a better way to
keep children fit: the Daily Mile. It
was started by Scottish
headmistress Elaine Wyllie in
2012 but I confess I have only just
read about it.
The way it works is for all the
children of a school to run around
the playground or field for
15 minutes every day.
It doesn’t matter if not every
child is able to run all the time or
even if those unable to walk have
to be pushed in wheelchairs. The
important thing is for everyone to
take part. The Daily Mile has been
enthusiastically taken up all over
the world and by all accounts
children love it, are happier, work
better and keep their weight
down.
And it doesn’t cost a penny.
Brilliant or what?

MasterChef star Matt SOMETHING’S
dies as blistering heat WRONG

TRIBUTES were paid last night to a TV
MasterChef star who collapsed and died
during the sweltering heat of the London
Marathon.
Matt Campbell, 29, fell ill at the 22d-mile
mark near Tower Hill – around four miles
from the finish – and died on arrival at
hospital.
The private chef, from Kendal, Cumbria, was hoping to fund-raise £2,500 for a
children’s charity in memory of his father
Martin who died 18 months ago. Sunday
was his second marathon in a fortnight.
By last night well-wishers had boosted
his JustGiving web page total to more
than £40,000. Mr Campbell had appeared
on the BBC’s MasterChef: The Professionals in December and made it through
to the semi-finals.
Last night show judge Marcus Wareing
paid tribute to the former contestant.
The Michelin-starred cook said: “He was
a talented, innovative and driven chef
with a bright future ahead of him. My
thoughts are with his friends and family
at this tragic time.”
Food journalist Jay Rayner said: “I presented Matt with an award for outstanding achievement at last month’s Cumbria
Life Food and Drink Awards. He was
clever and hugely creative and innovative. My thoughts are with his ­family.”

Mr Campbell’s PR agent, Helen Hokin,
said: “He was a lovely, down-to-earth man
poised to become the next great innovator in British food. He had such a way
with inspiring young chefs. This is so
sad.”
This year’s marathon was the hottest
ever at 75F (24C), with water stations
running dry and dozens of runners collapsing from heat exhaustion.
Just 10 minutes before starting the race
Mr Campbell posted a photo of himself
and fellow chef Tom Peters with the message: “Let’s do this.”
He was aiming for a three-hour finish
but instead became the 12th person to
die in the history of the race.
Mr Campbell began his career working
in Michelin-starred restaurants after finishing second in the BBC’s Young Chef Of
The Year in 2009. He left the UK for the
French Alps and worked in private villas
and luxury ski chalets but returned for
MasterChef.
Just two weeks ago he completed the
Manchester Marathon in three hours –
soon after finishing another marathon in
France. He was fundraising for the Cumbria-based Brathay Trust which helps
vulnerable children.

Snow could return to the UK
this week as temperatures are
set to drop, forecasters have
warned.
With bookies slashing odds on
snow to fall this month, the Met
Office said that the Lake
District, the Pennines and the
Highlands are most at risk.
After the country bathed in
sunshine last week, with
temperatures hitting record
figures, the hot spell will turn
cold, with winter flurries
predicted for higher ground.
“Towards the end of the week
it is certainly possible that the
cold weather will include hail,
sleet showers and snow,
By Gillian Crawley
especially on higher ground,”
said Met Office meteorologist
John West. “The areas most at
risk are the Lake District, North
Pennines and Scottish
Highlands, but we are not
expecting a big impact.”
He said May will start with
unsettled weather, although it
should not be a particularly wet
month.
Last week it looked like Britain
had bypassed spring and gone
straight to high summer.
Thursday was the hottest
April day for nearly 70 years with
a temperature of 84.4F (29.1C)
recorded in St James’s Park in
central London. The heatwave
was a result of warm air moving
up from the Azores in the south.
Parts of Britain outshone
popular holiday hotspots like
Larnaca in Cyprus, the Greek
capital Athens and Nice in the
south of France.
l The cold weather in February
and March could have cast a
chill over the economy.
Gross domestic product in the
first quarter of the year could be
cut in half from 0.4 per cent in
the previous quarter, warned the
EY Item Club.

SPARE a thought for poor old
BEYONCÉ, whose attempts to
incorporate lifting her sister SOLANGE
into the air as part of her recent Coachella
performance failed miserably – resulting in
both ladies toppling over.
During her headline slot at the California
festival on Sunday the 36-year-old invited
her fellow songstress sibling on stage to
dance with her and initially all seemed fine.
That is until, in a clearly but not particularly
well choreographed routine, the Perfect
Duet singer tried lifting the 31-year-old but
slipped and stumbled to the floor with
Solange landing on top of her.
The pair recovered well
with an almostrehearsed-looking leg
kick, then jumping up

MATT SMITH has finally broken his silence
over the gender pay row over The Crown after it
emerged he was being paid more than co-star
Claire Foy – despite her playing the Queen.
“Claire is one of my best friends and I believe
that we should be paid equally and fairly.
I support her completely,” says the 35-year-old
former Doctor Who who played
Prince Philip in the Netflix
series.
And he suggested that
producer Suzanne
Mackie’s plan that
“Going forward no
one gets paid
more than the
Queen”, has
already been
implemented. “I
am pleased it
was
resolved
and they
made
amends.
That needed
to happen.”

who earned a
Golden
Globe for her
portrayal of
the young
Queen, is
being replaced
by Olivia
Colman, 44, for
seasons three
and four.
IT IS hard to believe it was almost 30 years ago that Home Alone made
Macaulay Culkin a household name but the former child star is still
getting all the perks – and some of the downsides.
The actor, 37, says his distinctive looks allow him to dine out on his notoriety
– quite literally. “How can a person look too much like himself? It’s a curse and
a blessing,” he insists. “I can get
into any restaurant I want without
a reservation but while I’m there
everyone’s staring at me.”
The other downside is the level
of fan response he still gets to
the 1990 Christmas classic.
“I definitely don’t [go out]. It’s my
season,” he adds. “It’s Macaulay
season. I try to go out less and
less around that time of year.

AWAY FROM IT ALL: Katie Tunn became bored with her comfortable but uninspiring city life so she ditched urban society for puffin colonies
By Jane Warren
F
OUR YEARS ago Katie
Tunn drove 13 hours north
from her flat in London to
the Isle of Skye, intending
to stay for six months
after a serious illness had
made her focus on her true passions. She wanted to forage for
food, develop her interest in
marine conservation and make
art inspired by the sort of dramatic natural beauty that puts
everything else into perspective.
As soon as she arrived on
the Hebridean island’s wild
640-square miles she knew she
was home. She moved to a
remote cottage – an hour from
the nearest pub – and began
beachcombing.
“In hospital I saw how short
life can be,” she says. “Every
chance and adventure should be
grasped tight. The outlook on life
it gave me was worth every
moment of nausea and pain.”
But Skye has a population of
10,000 and Katie realised she was
hankering for even more solitude
so in 2016 she applied to become
a participant on Channel 4’s
troubled reality TV series Eden,
which saw her attempt to live in
the Scottish wilderness with a
group of strangers.
She began a relationship with
the show’s vet but when that
ended she came to the conclusion
she wanted to be truly cast away
– and this time with only 100,000
pairs of breeding seabirds for
company and no television crew
in tow. She chose the remote Shiant Isles, five miles south of
Lewis. Population: one (Katie).
Her plan was to spend 40 days
and 40 nights living as a
modern-day Robinson Crusoe on
an island without shops, houses
or roads as part of an Ordnance
Survey campaign to get more
people outdoors. Speaking before
her solo expedition started this
month she said: “I will have no
After taking part in Channel 4’s
reality TV flop Eden, in which
23 strangers lived together for
a year in the Scottish wilderness,
artist Katie Tunn decided to
spend 40 days in isolation on the
Shiant Isles in the Outer Hebrides
TEA FOR ONE: Katie’s dream
human contact, no electricity, no
entertainment. I will be completely alone. Wildlife and the
landscape will be my only company.”
However after only 12 days
Katie hit her head on a rock and
following four days of headaches
the decision was taken by the
coastguard to rescue her. She
was then taken to Stornoway
Hospital for 24-hour observation
and CT scans. But she is determined to return to her remote
island paradise soon. “The trip
has been magical and I can’t wait
to get back to complete it,” she
says. For now she is holed up on
Skye, creating moody abstract
art inspired by the sapphire
waters of the Inner Hebrides.
In London Katie, 32, was a
party girl always on the go at one
social event or another but says
growing up as an only child
means she has always liked her
own space. She even applied for
a job as Skye’s lighthouse keeper.
“Strangely when I moved here
I didn’t experience that feeling
of adventure that I thought I’d
find. I simply felt like I was
home,” she says.
The change in her art that this
has brought about is something
of a metaphor for the evolution of
her life. Katie – whose works sell
for up to £1,600 – began her painting career in the stuffy worlds of
polo and military portraiture,
creating works for patrons
and polo clubs in Windsor and
Ascot.
She also produced portraits of
Army regiments, racehorse owners and MPs before realising,
after she became ill, that city life
could not sustain her. “Just a
few years ago I was living in an
average flat with a nice boy in
an OK part of London,” she
explains.
“He’d put on a suit in the mornings and go to work in his government job. In the evenings we’d
slump into our Ikea sofa and
watch TV until it was time to go
to bed.”
Katie started hankering for a
rural way of life. In October 2014
she left London to head north
for her new life in Skye.
“The idea to move to the
islands had been building up for
some time but I experienced a
real ‘flight’ feeling,” she recalls. “I
dreamt of white beaches on Harris and purple hills on Skye.”
S
23
HE wanted to find a
home in a secluded
location with a real fire
and a view over water. It was
her mother who coaxed her to go
for it with a text message that
read: “B****r practicality.”
“Every morning I wake up to
the sea and the hills,” says Katie.
“The majority of things that
make me happy are free. I have
sloughed off all the fake mates
and now have only a small group
of friends whom I see rarely but
love dearly.”
Her military portraits have
given way to abstract miniature
oceans inside shells and huge circular paintings seared with gold.
“I often think about how confused 2011 Katie would be if she
was suddenly transported here,”
she says. “I wouldn’t recognise
the place I live, the people who
speak to me, I wouldn’t know
anything.
“I had intended to get back to
little rented flats and brunches
in Clapham but I can’t leave now.
Life is too short to live somewhere that doesn’t make your
heart beat a little faster.”
FORMER 1970s teen idol David Cassidy
is being pursued posthumously by a
woman who claims she has proof she is
his daughter.
Shelly Wright, 44, from
Florida, says she is
Cassidy’s progeny from
a one-night stand in
1973 with her mother
Donna. She cites a
99.9 per cent positive
DNA test report using a
sample from a water
bottle obtained on eBay
and allegedly used by Cassidy and of her
own saliva.
“It has been one hell of a ride for me to
get anyone to listen,” she says. “The
Cassidy family totally shunned me.”
Cassidy’s son Beau, 27, by his third
ex-wife Sue, rejects her claims.
Cassidy – who also has daughter,
actress Katie Cassidy, 32, by ex-girlfriend
Sherry Williams – died aged 67 in
November from organ failure after
battling alcoholism and early onset
dementia.
The bankrupted singer was particularly
popular in the UK. In 1973 he was forced
to fi lm his hit Daydreamer on a Heathrow
runway instead of at the Top Of The Pops
BBC studio as producers feared too much
disruption from his adoring fans.
MOURNING the death of his Cairn terrier
Olga, presenter Paul O’Grady, 62, has been
musing on his own mortality. O’Grady, who
has survived two heart attacks, is not scared
of death. “It is going to happen to all of us
but I’d sooner it was short or sharp in the
jaws of a lion or something rather than lying
in bed.”
THE affectionate pictures of Bill Clinton
with George Bush Senior after his wife
Barbara’s funeral go deeper than
protocol. Clinton, whose father died three
months before he was born, regards his
presidential predecessor as a surrogate
father.
Barbara said in 2012: “ The boys (her
sons) call him, ‘Brother by another
mother’. He’s very nice. He thinks of
George as the father he never had. He has
been very thoughtful.”
SHE is known for her
glossy brown bob but
comedian Dawn French,
60, pictured, reveals it is all
down to the help of the dye
bottle as she is actually
silver haired.
“I’ve had my hair
‘youngened’,” she jokes.
“If I didn’t I’d be grey
because my mum was in her 20s when her
hair went steel grey.”
NO FALSE modesty for Michelle Collins.
The ex-EastEnders actress, 56, declares:
“I feel better than I did when I was 25.
I look after myself a lot more than I did
when I was 25, even 35.”
She cites yoga and dog walking as to
how she keeps in good shape.
But Michelle has another reason for
staying young: her boyfriend Mike
Davison, who is more than 20 years her
junior.
AWARD-WINNING record producer Tony
Visconti, who worked most famously with
David Bowie, turns 74 today.
What Brooklyn-born Visconti is less well
known for is his marital choices. After
splitting from Siegrid Berman, his second wife
in 1971 was Welsh singer Mary “Those Were
The Days” Hopkin with whom he had two
children.
He went on to marry and have two more
children by May Pang, previously John
Lennon’s girlfriend on his 18-month “lost
weekend” when he was separated from wife
Yoko Ono.

THE MOST HEARTBREAKING PHOTO
Eight-year-old’s
farewell kiss for
her dying mum
THIS heartbreaking moment shows
eight-year-old Roxy Fenn kissing her
dying mother a few days before she
lost her battle with breast cancer.
Roxy is now an orphan following the
death of her mother Vicky, who died in
a hospice last Wednesday. She was 38.
Vicky, who lived in Benfleet, Essex,
was diagnosed with stage three
breast cancer in 2016.
It was a year after her partner Bob,
who was Roxy’s father, died when he
suffered complications after triple
heart bypass surgery. He was 55.
Their loving daughter will now live
with Vicky’s sister Teresa, 41. “It’s a
completely new life for her, a new
By Gillian Crawley
home, new family, new school. But
she is being very brave,” said the
mother-of-two from Cambridgeshire.
She said of Vicky’s strength: “Over
the last two years, even after Bob
died, she never once said ‘poor me’. It
was all about what’s best for Roxy.”
Teresa has vowed to carry on
Vicky’s campaign to lower the age for
NHS breast screening to 25. It covers
women aged 50 to 70 in the UK, but in
England the age range is 47 to 73.
Vicky was initially told her invasive
lobular breast cancer was curable. But
after she discovered about 11 months
ago that she had just
two years to live, she
launched the breast
screening petition.
It has 10,000
signatures and if it
reaches 100,000 it will
be considered for
debate in Parliament.
Vicky said after her
diagnosis: “Roxy
faces losing both her
mummy and daddy.
“Because of my age,
I never dreamt I’d have
breast cancer. Help
our kids get
diagnosed quicker to
prevent early death.”
In the last two years,
Vicky made a memory
box for Roxy. “I want
her to know I’m always
there,” she said.
Memories... Roxy has fun dressing up with her mother
By Mark Reynolds
A CITY’s health crusade has exposed
how some children’s yogurts can
come close to exceeding their daily
sugar limit in a single helping.
Research found that yogurts can
contain the equivalent of almost five
sugar cubes – or teaspoons – of sugar
in a pot.
Public Health Liverpool is now
planning to highlight its findings
with a media campaign across health
centres, dentists’ surgeries, children’s centres and hospitals.
NHS guidelines say children aged
between four and six should have no
more than 19g – or five sugar cubes
– a day of free sugar that is not
“locked in” naturally to products,
while seven-to-10-year-olds should
have no more than six cubes.
Dr Sandra Davies, the city’s director of public health, said: “Tackling
sugar in diets is a real priority for us
because we know that people simply
don’t realise how much they are consuming.”
The drive, which is backed by the
campaign group Food Active, is
aimed at tackling childhood obesity,
with figures showing around 12 per
cent of school reception age children
in the city and more than 23 per cent
of year six pupils (final year of primary)are classed as obese.
Dr Davies added: “If we are to
stand any chance of tackling this
ticking time bomb, we must give
parents as much information as possible. Most people don’t have the
time to read labels when racing
around the supermarket, and so we
have to support them to make
healthier choices.”
Public Health Liverpool is also
launching a roadshow tour of super-

healthy food choices.
Almost a third of five-year-olds in
Liverpool have decayed, missing or
filled teeth, with on average two
children under the age of 10 being
admitted to hospital every day to
get teeth removed.
Beth Bradshaw, from Food Active,
said: “The issue with fruit in a lot of
pre-packaged yogurts is that it has
been processed and altered to be
almost unrecognisable.
“Yogurt is such a healthy and delicious food to give children. It should
feature in their diet on a daily basis
because it’s full of calcium, which
helps promote healthy bone development and is a really good source
of protein. The golden rule is to opt
for plain yogurt as a starting point –
plain low fat Greek and natural
yogurts are delicious and are much
lower in added sugars. Plus, you can
add in your own tasty fruit.”
Medics have warned that Britain
is facing an obesity crisis with overweight people running the risk of
developing a whole host of diseases.
In the UK, some 19.1 per cent of children aged 10-11 are now obese and a
further 14.2 per cent are overweight.
Of children aged four to five, 9.1 per
cent are obese and 12.8 per cent are
overweight.
Campaign groups have warned
the UK is sitting on an obesity timebomb with future cases of heart disease and type 2 diabetes set to soar.

Generation of women sold
short in pensions scandal
As quoted in the Daily Express,
men get on average £29,000 more
than women during the course of a
typical 20-year retirement
(“‘Second-class’ women missing
out on £29k in pension gender
scandal”, April 21).
This in itself is a scandal but
even worse for women born in the
1950s who have had their state
pension age increased without fair
warning to be able to plan for
retirement. I was expecting to be
able to retire at 60 but now have to
wait until I am 66.
What is not being taken into
account is the lost payment for
those six years, in my case that
amounts to £42,000.
On top of that I am still having to
pay national insurance
contributions and income tax.
Just what is the Government
doing with the extra money they
are saving and receiving which no
one seems to mention?
I still have four years to work
when I should have retired two
years ago.

We voted to leave the EU
so let’s just get on with it
For many of us who voted to leave
the EU the two biggest issues were
leaving the customs union so
we can trade with the rest of the
world and controlling our
borders (“Don’t cheat Brexit
voters by staying in customs
union”, April 23).
Thank goodness Prime Minister
Theresa May has assured us we will
leave the customs union.
The Remain voters know to have
a successful Brexit much depends
on open trade and if we didn’t have
this our future away from the EU
may not look as positive.
This would likely lead to a vote in
the future to return to the EU, with
more stringent ties than ever and
being forced to take the euro.
The border issue in Ireland is
being used by the negative
Remoaners and the disgruntled
European Parliament.
My goodness, there are borders
with Europe across the world.
Liz Stewart,
Portrush, Co Antrim
It’s a shame politicians do
not tell it straight like Leo
Another great article from Leo
McKinstry (“Government must not
compromise on customs union”,
April 23) full of truths, unlike many
of our politicians.
It is so frustrating to hear them
talking about carrying out the
wishes or will of the British
people but they are too busy
looking after number one, as
evidence clearly shows over the EU
negotiations.
When a group of MPs are doing
everything possible to thwart the
will of the people, they have chosen
to ignore us and the belief in this
country’s democracy.
My advice to Theresa May is to
just walk away.
You would have the nation
behind you and you could do it as
the PM without these endless
negotiations.
John Sharp,
East Cowes, Isle of Wight
Barnier’s a Brexit blocker
and no friend of business
As Leo McKinstry suggests it
has been obvious since day one
that Michel Barnier’s sole
intention was to block Brexit at
any cost with a string of quite
ridiculous threats about trade,
open air travel and many more.

Letter of the day
Marathon effort
that makes you
proud to be British
101 years old and still as
meaty as a princess...
A
I was privileged to watch the start of the London
Marathon on TV and one particular shot of thousands of
people thronging the streets and creating a massive
movement of colour, joy, happiness and determination
brought tears of pride to my eyes (“Runners buckle in
blistering heat”, April 23).
So many people taking part to raise money for good
causes or running in memory of loved ones, or just for the
sheer hell of it and to prove they could do it.
Entrants came from all corners of the globe to take
part and the length of time it took to see them all off
proved what a Herculean task organisers had to deal with
the multitude of people taking part.
Despite runners buckling in the exhausting heat many
quickly recovered and carried on which is a measure of
the kind of people taking part. We live in Great Britain
and on Sunday the runners in the London Marathon
showed the rest of the world just how “Great” we are.
Jean Norfolk,
Knottingley, W Yorks HEROES: Marathon runners cross Tower Bridge
Barnier is certainly no friend of EU
businesses and is apparently
unaware of the damage it will
certainly bring to their respective
economies.
But then he is a career politician
so it is not his area of expertise.

Windrush victims aren’t
the only ones who suffer
I totally agree with
compensating members of the
Windrush generation for the
trauma they have been put through
(“May: Windrush victims will be
compensated”, April 21).
But they are not the only victims.
Hardworking Britons married to
non-EU citizens have had
unbelievable financial penalties
imposed on them just to get the
visa to live together as a family,
resulting in thousands of Britons
living married life through Skype.

Government funds foreign
aid so why not social care?
Politicians could halt the crisis
in funding over all of the care
sector if the will was there (“Stop
this injustice”, April 20).
All nursing and residential home
fees should be paid directly from
the Government; £600 per week for
residential, £800 for nursing, leaving
councils with the money from
council tax payers to cover social
care funding.
The Government can find billions
for overseas aid and the EU so I
feel sure they could scrape together
a couple of billion to pay for this.
Judy Goodwin,
Altofts, W Yorks
WAS IT TIME FOR WENGER TO LEAVE ARSENAL?
Yes
I DON’T get all the
misty-eyed romanticism
over Arsene Wenger’s
long overdue departure from
Arsenal (“I went for club’s sake”,
April 23).
Under Wenger, Arsenal haven’t
won the Premier League for 14
years and in the last few seasons
the team has gone backwards.
Arsenal tickets are among the
most expensive in the country and
fans understandably expect more.
In 22 years he won the title three
times. To put that into context,
between 1993 and 2013 Wenger’s
great rival Sir Alex Ferguson won it
13 times with Manchester United.
Darren Walters,
Manchester
No
Arsenal fans need to
be careful what they wish
for. Arsene Wenger is one
of the world’s best managers and,
most importantly, plays the game
in the right way.
The current trend of winning by
two dives to one and feigning injury
by being touched by the little
finger of an opponent is more
about TV money than football.
Arsene Wenger is a victim of his
own success and deserves better
treatment.
I hope in the future that the
Arsenal fans who called for his
sacking get exactly what they
deserve, nothing.

Commons Speaker has got
best seat in the House
Further to Hickey’s comment
(April 19), I would not wish to
lessen the sense of achievement the
Speaker of the House of Commons
can claim for his long spells on duty
without having to answer a call of
nature. But could the secret be his
mode of seating is a Governmentfunded commode chair?

Golden oldies of tomorrow
haven’t much to sing about
I agree with Brian King’s
comments on today’s music and
singers (Letters, April 23).
I enjoyed a couple of hours on
Saturday at a care home where an
entertainer sang songs from the
1940s onward. All the residents
joined in and knew all the words.
I wonder what elderly folk will be
singing in 50 years’ time. I don’t
even know what today’s artists are
singing or shouting about anyway.

Ten things you never knew about... cows This is Great British Beef Week, organised by the
female beef farmers of Ladies in Beef. For full details,
see ladiesinbeef.org.uk/gbbw
1. Domestic cows date back more than 10,000
years. They descend from aurochs (wild oxen).
2. A cow’s pulse is about 60-70 beats a minute.
When eating, it chews at least 50 times a minute. It
eats about 100 pounds of food a day.
3. Cows can walk upstairs but not downstairs.
4. The bovine genome was mapped in 2009 when it
was found that cows and humans have 80 per cent
of genes in common.
5. On average a cow releases 70-120kg of methane
WILLIAM HARTSTON
per year. The global warming effect of this is equal
to burning about 220 gallons of petrol.
6. Bulls are not angered by the colour red; in fact,
cattle are red-green colour-blind.
7. In Somerset in 1841, 737 cows were milked to
make a 9ft-diameter cheese for Queen Victoria.
8. A study of Google Earth images in 2008 showed
cows tend to align themselves with the Earth’s
north-south magnetic axis when eating or resting.
9. Some say this is because they don’t like the sun
and wind in their faces but another theory says it
is something to do with their magnetic sense.
10. The earliest recorded use of the word “cowboy”
was in 1735 but “cowherd” dates back 1,000 years.
YOUNG lady rang me this
morning, or yesterday morning
as you probably like to think of
it as you won’t be reading this
until the day I call “tomorrow”, and
told me that her name was Chloë. I
asked whether she put two dots over
the e and when she confirmed that
that was indeed the case, I encouraged
her to proceed.
“I’m phoning about a restaurant also
called Chloë,” she said, in fact, they
are called “by CHLOË” and they are
Meghan Markle’s favourite fast-casual
restaurant.
“Do they also put two dots over the
E?” I asked.
“No,” she said. “They omit the
umlaut, possibly because they spell the
name in capital letters.”
“Wait a moment,” I said, as I crossed
out all the dots I had placed over the
final letters of Chloë and CHLOË in her
previous utterance. When I had done
so, I pointed out that the dots that
were not there were not a German
umlaut anyway, they are a British
diaeresis.
“How can you tell whether it’s an
umlaut or a diaeresis if it’s not there?”
she asked. “Anyway, by CHLOE is
neither German nor British but are an
American chain that has now opened in
London’s Covent Garden.”
“That’s no excuse,” I said.
“Furthermore,” she added, “they
have just created a Royal Poutine in
honour of Meghan Markle and the
forthcoming wedding.”
“A royal what?” I asked.
“Poutine,” she said. “It’s a Canadian
delicacy of French fries and curds
topped with gravy which Ms Markle
loves and by CHLOE has created a
vegan version for her ‘week-day vegan
diet’ and you can have it brought to
your door by Deliveroo.”
“This gets more and more worrying,”
I said. “Do you think that they might
have dropped the dots over the E
because they thought they were
animal-based, or possibly they were
held in place above the letter by
gelatin? Did you know, incidentally,
that there is a new baby okapi at
London Zoo called Meghan Markle?”
“Okapis are vegan,” Chloë with a
diaeresis said. “In fact, they are
folivores and only eat mature leaves,
even avoiding any leaves that have
algae growing on them.”
“Fusspots,” I said. “So even Meghan
Markle the okapi would decline an offer
of a Poutine because it’s not made of
leaves.”
“Probably correct,” she said. “But it
is made of signature Air Baked Fries
and Spicy Seitan Chorizo topped with
Cashew Mozzarella, gravy and housemade Chipotle Aioli, which we are sure
would appeal to the nearly-princess of
the same name. Would you like to try
it? We can have Deliveroo deliver it.”
“Madam,” I said, “despite my
admiration of your diaeresis, I can
assure you that if any dotless Chloe,
Zoe or Noel comes to my door and
starts stuffing vegan food through my
letter box, I shall add slow-cooked,
well-marinated beef to it and sprinkle
the deliverers with dots from my
patent-applied-for diaeresis sprinkler
(available only from Beachcomber
enterprises).” And we left it at that.

A DRUG baron who used a helicopter to
smuggle £7million worth of cocaine into the
grounds of luxury hotels in Britain was
jailed for more than 17 years yesterday.
Belgian national Frederic Fagnoul masterminded the operation using a specially
adapted light four-seater chopper.
The Robinson R44 made several trips
from Belgium to Lydd Airport, Kent, with a
total of 80 kilos of the class A drug stashed
in the craft’s false hold, a court was told.
After passing through customs and passport control, the helicopter then flew to
helipads at two luxury spa hotels in Kent.
Fagnoul, 50, later met couriers who drove
the cocaine to drugs gangs in London,
Liverpool and Birmingham.
Jailed...copter drug baron
in £7m cocaine hotel drops
Secret
Over four months, he smuggled £7million
of cocaine into Britain before his operation
was smashed by Scotland Yard last September. Fagnoul, of Ferrieres, in Belgium,
admitted conspiracy to import cocaine at
Southwark Crown Court in London yesterday and was jailed for 17½ years.
Judge Nicholas Loraine-Smith said: “You
imported at least 80 kilograms and your
plan was to import 170 kilograms.”
The court heard he duped a pilot into flying the drugs into the grounds of the Eastwell Manor Hotel, Ashford, and the Chilston
Park Hotel, at Lenham, near Maidstone.
Fagnoul used a special key fob to release
trap doors beneath the helicopter’s seats
where the drugs were hidden. They were
then transferred to a Nissan Qashqai car.
Posing as a wealthy businessman, Fagnoul told staff he had been night fishing in
the English Channel. Staff at both hotels
had no idea what was going on, the court
was told. James Brown, prosecuting, said:
“This was a sophisticated conspiracy and
Belgian drug smuggler Frederic Fagnoul, 50
was concerned with the supply of vast quantities of cocaine, of a very high purity, a valuable class A controlled drug.”
After an undercover operation at both
hotels, officers from the Organised Crime
Command (OCC) moved in. Fagnoul was
arrested at the Chilston Park Hotel.
In his luxury suite, police found the key
fob used to open up the hiding place in the
helicopter along with encrypted phones
and plastic gloves. Fagnoul claimed he had
been forced into the smuggling racket by

unaffordable or takes a hefty lump away
from your spending money. That’s what
happened to reader Mr Saw, 72 from
Cumbria, who had been saving for a
trip to Malaysia for his 50th wedding
anniversary.
Mr Saw said: “After booking the
holiday, we decided to check with
SAGA, and I couldn’t believe it when
they told me that my travel insurance
would cost almost £600. After seeing
Payingtoomuch.com advertised, I
decided to give them a call and spoke
to a friendly and helpful travel insurance
team member who went through the
questions with me. I was thrilled to be told
that the policy would only cost £239, over
£300 cheaper than SAGA quoted me.”
Chris Pannell from Payingtoomuch.com
said: “We use several travel insurance
underwriters that we work closely with to
ensure that our clients receive excellent
value for money.”

NEARLY half of all

financially, a study
has found.
A survey of 2,000
UK adults revealed
43 per cent are

they need to pay
the bills an average
of seven months
each year.
And for a
quarter, money is
an uphill battle
every single month.
The average
adult turns to

them to payday in
four out of every 12
months, with one
in 10 saying this is
a monthly issue.

To make it
worse, 31 per cent
currently owe an
average of £9,131 to
their bank, credit

Louise HarperKing, speaking for
OnePoll.com,

the research, said:
“With rising costs
and wages not

Dr Malcolm Burgess of the
Royal Society for the Protection of Birds said: “Forests
have a short peak in caterpillar
abundance and some forest
birds time their breeding to
coincide with the time when
their chicks are hungriest.
“With spring coming earlier
due to climate change, leaves
and caterpillars emerge earlier
and birds need to breed earlier
to avoid being mismatched.
“We found the earlier the
spring, the less able birds are
to do this. The biggest mismatch was among pied flycatchers. As migratory birds,
they’re not in the UK in winter
and so less able to respond to
earlier spring weather.”
Researchers at the RSPB
and the Universities of Exeter
and Edinburgh analysed when
chicks of blue and great tits
and pied flycatchers hatched
based on records from the
British Trust for Ornithology.
They then compared these
to records of the first leafing of
oak trees from the Woodland
Trust’s Nature’s Calendar as
well as caterpillars numbers,
reports the journal Nature
Ecology & Evolution.
Scientists found climate
warming did not appear to create a greater mismatch among
birds in the South than the
North. The study analysed
data from 1965 to 2016.

changes to snow melt and snow

One of the most familiar

It is a victim of its own

GARDEN birds such as blue
and great tits face starvation
due to climate change, experts
warned yesterday.
Warmer, earlier springs are
creating a “mismatch” where
chicks hatch too late for the
seasonal glut of caterpillars on
which they rely for food.
The worst affected bird is
the pied flycatcher which cannot easily adapt to Britain’s
changing climate because it
migrates here from Africa.
Dr Karl Evans, at University
of Sheffield’s animal and plant
sciences department, said:
“Our work suggests as springs
warm in the future less food is
likely to be available for chicks
of insectivorous woodland
birds unless evolution changes
their timing of breeding.”
Conservationists have long
warned that climate change
could affect the rearing of
chicks by getting nesting out

How a TV show revived
a town’s tourist trade
By Dominic Utton
I
T MIGHT be television’s
unlikeliest – and loveliest – hit.
The Yorkshire Vet, which has
just begun its sixth series on
Channel 5, regularly pulls in
around 1.6 million viewers, who
are entranced by the gentle tales of
life in the Skeldale Veterinary Centre in Thirsk. There vets Peter
Wright and Julian Norton attend to
the needs of animals as diverse as
pet hamsters and farm livestock.
The appeal lies partly in the
drama of the vet’s practice itself.
Last week’s episode saw Wright
performing an emergency caesarean section on a ewe (the twin
lambs were saved, the ewe sadly
put to sleep) – but another, less
obvious star of the show has also
emerged: Thirsk itself.
If it all has echoes of that other
famous Yorkshire-set veterinary
show All Creatures Great And
Small, the coincidence is not accidental. Thirsk (population 11,000)
was not only the location for author
James Herriot’s tales but Peter
Wright actually served as Herriot’s
apprentice back in the 1980s.
And just as the BBC series
painted an idealised portrait of life
in the Yorkshire Dales, so the Channel 5 show eschews the flashier
aspects of modern reality TV. The
appropriately named producer Lou
Cowmeadow explains: “I was keen
the series didn’t only show how
vets ‘fix’ animals. There’s so much
more going on. At the heart of each
episode we have warm and wonderful folk, stunning surroundings,
love between owners and animals,
and understanding and sympathy
between the vets and clients.”
But that such an idea should
appeal to anyone, let alone well
over a million viewers every week,
is something that Wright himself
confesses he’s surprised by. “I’ve
been massively taken aback by the
success of the programme,” he
says. “In fact I nearly didn’t do it at
all. When we started I thought no
one will be interested, I thought it
was a complete waste of time. It’s
almost surreal to me. I’m just a
little country vet. Now it seems I’m
known all round Britain.”

T
HE success of the show is
also proving the catalyst for
an unlikely boom in tourism
for Yorkshire as visitors flock to
Thirsk in the hope of capturing a
little bit of the show’s rural idyll for
themselves. “There’s an awful lot
more tourists now in Thirsk,” says
Wright. “When I go into the Golden
Fleece for a quick pint on my way
home at night there’ll be people in
there who’ll say, ‘We’re staying here
because of you, because we wanted
to come to Yorkshire Vet country’.
“The whole town is doing really
well because of it. Which is great
because I’m a proud Thirsky and a
proud Yorkshireman and anything
that brings people to our beautiful
area is fine by me. I know I’m biased
but we have beautiful countryside,
we’re on the edge of the North
Yorkshire Moors National Park, a
short distance from the Yorkshire
Dales National Park. We’re blessed.
A lot of people who don’t know the
area see it on TV and think, wow,
this is fantastic, how did I not know
about this place before?”
Ian Ashton, who runs The World
of James Herriot, a museum dedicated to the late author’s life and
works located in Herriot’s old home
and surgery, also believes the popularity of the show is having a tangible effect on the prosperity of the
town. “It has been a massive boost
for tourism for Thirsk, not only for
The World of James Herriot but all
the businesses in Thirsk – and even
right across Yorkshire,” he says.
Ashton has seen visitor numbers
double from 18,000 to 36,000 since
the programme started airing in
2015 and, as well as more British
tourists, he says they now welcome
visitors from as far away as South
Korea and Chile. And of course the
US. “Larry Riley, commercial director, central region, at Virgin Atlantic, visited the World of James Herriot recently as part of a fact-finding
tour of the area,” he says. “The airline’s US flights into Manchester
are growing and the aim is to create more opportunities for visitors
to experience the locations known
throughout the world for the Herriot books, films and original TV
series and the more recent Yorkshire Vet TV programmes.”
He also says that as well as making unlikely celebrities of Wright
and Norton, the series has revived
interest in the works of James Herriot. As recently as 2012 the
museum was losing so much money
it was in danger of closing. “It’s
been absolutely fantastic,” he says.
“We’re now getting a lot of coach
operators coming here, spending
the day in Thirsk, visiting the cafés
and shops, spending money.”
For Peter Wright, the legacy of
his old boss is impossible to escape.
He believes that not only was
Herriot – real name Alf Wight – a
great writer he was also a peerless
vet and Wright is flattered by any
comparison. “James Herriot will
always be the grand master of veterinary practice,” he says. “He
wasn’t a man who forced his opinions on you. He’s a man that if you
turned to for guidance he would
always give it wisely, in a very quiet
way. He was always there if you
needed him. Not only was he my
boss but he was a very good friend.
“When I moved out of the old
practice and into Skeldale Veterinary Centre it was very important
to me that we had the same ethos,
the same friendliness that he
instilled. When we moved to Skeldale I even opened a bottle of air
from that old practice to imbue it
with that wonderful atmosphere.”
Given all that it is perhaps fitting
that another beneficiary of Thirsk’s
vet-inspired tourist boom should
bring the story full circle. Inspired
both by the success of the show
and the original idea behind it,
Wright’s partner at Skeldale, Julian
Norton, has written two books
himself about life as a Yorkshire
vet.
A
ND Sue Lake, who runs
the White Rose Book Café
in the town, says the
resulting sales figures have been
“phenomenal”. “Julian is bigger
than JK Rowling in Thirsk,” she
says. “When his first book came out
we sold 1,600 copies in hardback,
which is phenomenal, especially for
an independent bookshop. And his
second book has repeated that.
“I’ve never seen anything like it
in 23 years of bookselling, even at
the height of Harry Potter mania
with the midnight openings and so
on. People were coming from all
over the country, booking themselves in to hotels, just to attend
the launch. It feels like Thirsk has
really been put on the map again.”

A
S A meteorologist and TV
weather presenter Clare
Nasir could rightly be
considered something of
an expert on the growing
problem of Britain’s air
pollution. But even she admits to
being taken aback at the impact
that moving from crowded London
to leafy Cheshire had on the health
of her eight-year-old daughter
Sienna.
As a toddler living in the capital,
Sienna needed to use an asthma
inhaler most days just to keep her
airways open and ease the wheezing
and coughing that struck whenever
the family ventured outdoors.
But in the small town of Wilmslow,
just south of Manchester, and with
the countryside on the doorstep, her
lungs are clear and the inhaler is no
longer used.
“It’s been in the cupboard
gathering dust since we moved here
six years ago,” says Clare, 47, who
relocated when her husband, BBC
Radio 6 Music presenter Chris
Hawkins, 42, moved with his job.
“We could not believe the
transformation in her health. Almost
instantly the coughing and wheezing
stopped and she’s hardly used the
inhaler since.
“In London we lived within a few
hundred metres of the A1, one of the
main routes in and out of the city.
When Sienna was a baby we tried to
get her out in the fresh air as much
as possible.
“But we realise now that it was
damaging her lungs.”
Now Clare, an ambassador for the
Healthy Air Campaign, is backing an
awareness project by high street
pharmacist Boots to highlight the
role that filthy inner-city air plays
in worsening the symptoms of hay
fever.
It has carried out a survey of 2,000
adults which shows most people
think exposure to pollen in rural
areas is a much bigger problem than
urban smog.
Only one in four people quizzed
associated air pollution with making
their hay fever symptoms worse, a
problem that Boots has dubbed
“pollenution”.
Commuting and pollution
statistics suggest the five UK
hotspots most likely to be affected
by “pollenution” over the next few
months are London, Cardiff,
Birmingham, Leeds and Glasgow.

‘asthma’
The TV weather presenter tells
PAT HAGAN how moving out
from London to the countryside
transformed her daughter’s health
P
rime Minister Theresa May
has warned air pollution is
the fourth biggest health risk
behind cancer, obesity and heart
disease, and high levels of emissions
by diesel-powered vehicles are
largely to blame.
“Air pollution is a huge problem,”
says Clare, who presents the weather
on Channel 5 but has previously
worked for the BBC and ITV and has
written a series of children’s books.
“Government statistics show it
already kills around 40,000 people a
year in the UK.
“When Sienna first started
coughing and wheezing as an
infant we blamed it on the fact that
she was born two months
prematurely.
“As a newborn she needed to be
given steroids as her lungs were not
fully developed and there were a few
occasions where she turned blue
from breathing problems.
“It was a pretty traumatic time for
me and Chris.”
When Sienna turned one her
parents took her to a GP because
of her persistent coughing and
wheezing. The doctor said she was
displaying “asthma-like symptoms”.
This is not a diagnosis of asthma
but means the patient is suffering
breathing difficulties that get worse
in the cold, wheezing that gets worse
early in the morning or at night and
31
BREATHE EASY: Clare Nasir with her daughter Sienna,
aged eight, left, and presenting on Channel 5, below
a tight feeling in the chest. Sienna
was prescribed Ventolin, an inhaler
that makes it easier to breathe by
opening up the airways when they
get congested.
“There were periods when she
needed it every day in London yet
we could not work out what was
triggering her symptoms,” says
Clare. “It [the inhaler] helped but in
reality it was merely putting a
sticking plaster over the problem.
“What we realised later was that
babies are especially vulnerable to
the effects of air pollution. She was
two-and-a-half when we moved away
from London to Cheshire and the
improvement in her health was
almost instant.”
Beverley Adams-Groom, a
scientist at the National Pollen and
Aerobiology Research Unit at the
University of Worcester, says:
“Studies have shown that air
pollution can make hay fever
symptoms worse and that even
when the pollen count is relatively
low it can still have an impact on hay
fever sufferers, as air
pollution enhances the
effects of pollen.”
Around 13 million
people in the UK suffer
with hay fever caused by
pollen.
It is a fine powder
released by plants as part
of their reproductive
cycle.
Most sufferers rely on
over-the-counter
medicines, such as
antihistamine tablets, to
relieve their symptoms.
Histamine is a chemical
released when the body
detects something harmful
such as an infection.
But in hay fever sufferers
the body mistakes harmless pollen
as a threat and pumps out high
levels of histamine.
Clare says Sienna is now in fine
health and likes nothing more
than a game of dodgeball, an
increasingly popular sport where
two teams try to hit opponents with
a ball.
“If we had stayed in London she
would probably still be needing her
inhaler most days,” says Clare.
“Now she loves her dodgeball and
is planning to do a 10k run with me
in the future.”
expert’s tips ON
pollen-busting
Boots UK pharmacist
Angela Chalmers offers
these tips to beat air
pollution and pollen:
SHUT THE WINDOWS
Pollen is highest in the air
during the middle of the day
so shut doors and windows
to stop it getting inside.
USE PETROLEUM JELLY
Rub it on the inside of your
nostrils to stop pollen sticking
to the lining of your nose.
CHANGE YOUR
CLOTHES
Pollen sticks to absolutely
everything so change your
clothes as soon as you get
home to stop it spreading.
HAVE AN EVENING
SHOWER
Pollen also clings to hair.
A shower before bedtime
stops the allergens getting
into your sheets.
CUT DOWN ON BOOZE
Alcohol can worsen hay fever
symptoms so try to avoid it on
days when your symptoms
are very bad.

W
HEN TESS Jewson walked
up the aisle to marry her
fiancé Terry, 28, almost
exactly a year ago, it was
one of the best days of her
life. But no one looking at
pictures of the radiant bride would
ever guess the obstacles that Tess
faces every day in order to live a
normal life. The 27-year-old music
teacher from Chelmsford, Essex,
was diagnosed with an incurable heart
condition called pulmonary arterial
hypertension (PAH) in her teens.
The debilitating disease which
affects blood vessels in the lungs,
leads to heart failure, meaning that
Tess will eventually need a heart
transplant.
“I was well enough to walk down the
aisle and was symptom-free all day,”
she says. “It was a very emotional day
not only because of my health but
because my dad Chris, who passed
away in 2014, wasn’t there to share the
day. But we released a dove in his
memory and I loved having my mum
Val walk me up the aisle.”
Around 6,500 people in the UK have
been diagnosed with PAH and for
many sufferers the cause is a mystery.
Women are more than twice as likely
to be affected as men and it often
occurs in young people. It is a chronic
disease that leaves sufferers feeling
breathless, exhausted and in severe
pain. After diagnosis only 50 per cent
of those affected will survive for
another five years. The only cure is a
heart and lung transplant, which has
associated risks and complications.
Although PAH can be inherited, in
Tess’s case it was caused by a hole in
her heart which was discovered when
she was 17 and studying for her
A-levels at college. “I was angry when
I found out my condition was
incurable,” she recalls. “I thought,
‘Why me?’ and I was sad. I was a
trumpet player and that was my life,
although I also played piano and cello.
Daily Express Tues
I always believe that on
day my heart will be fix
Scientists are a step closer to curing a deadly
cardiac condition giving patients like Tess Jewson
renewed hope, writes RUTH HUNTMAN
But I loved the trumpet. I was told I
would never be able to play it again as
it was putting too much pressure on
my heart. That was the worst news for
me.”
Current treatments for PAH
including macitentan and sildenafil
can only target symptoms and can
have unpleasant side effects such as
nausea, limb pain, vomiting and
diarrhoea.
Tess, who takes both medications,
says: “I get headaches, migraines and
nausea but it’s got me through the
last 10 years so I know that holding
out through the side effects will be
better for me in the long run.”
Despite her condition, which often
involves long stays in hospital, Tess
managed to get a place at
Southampton University to study
music and obtain her degree. She
travelled around Europe with an
orchestra until she was 21 and worked
in the Middle East before returning to
the UK to become a music teacher.
“I have always been a positive
person,” she says. “But I never know
what the next day will bring. I have to
wake up and see how I feel.
“If I go out and start to feel sick I
have to go home. I also find that if I go
out and let my hair down I have to
take the next day off as I will spend
the day in bed. I went on holiday with
friends last year and spent the next
week in hospital.
“I will have a wonderful time but I
will pay for it. But that is my decision.
If I didn’t I would feel left out. I live
life to the full as I don’t know what is
around the corner.”
But now thanks to new research,
Tess has been offered a glimmer of
hope. Scientists at the University of
Edinburgh, funded by the British
Heart Foundation (BHF), have made
a breakthrough which could lead to a
new treatment.
By studying muscle cells from
pulmonary arteries in mice and clones
of human cells, the team, led by
Professor Mark Evans, have been able
to show that they can use the existing
treatments for PAH to regulate a new
calcium channel called TPC2. How
these drugs work against the
condition has been hotly debated but
it is hoped that the breakthrough
could speed up the road to new
specific drugs for PAH.
Dr Abigail Woodfin of the BHF says:
“Although this research is in early
stages it is always encouraging to see
new targets emerge that could he
develop treatments for condition
that blight the lives of thousands
people and their families.”
Tess says: “This new research i
fantastic news for me because it g
me hope that maybe a cure will b
found in my lifetime. I know it wil

Q
A
Does having tinnitus mean I have a
hearing loss?
In most instances it can often be that
tinnitus is an underlying symptom of
hearing loss, caused by exposure to noise
over a period of time, medication, or even
simply the aging process. However it is also
possible to have tinnitus without having
hearing loss. If you are exposed to sudden
loud noise, such as a rock concert or an
explosion, you might experience temporary
ringing in the ears. If you think you have
hearing loss or for advice on how best to
manage your tinnitus, book in with your local
Amplifon Audiologist in the first instance.

Can hearing aids help with tinnitus?
Patients with hearing loss and tinnitus
may find relief from the use of hearing
aids. With the hearing aids in, your organ
of hearing and brain is receiving more
stimulation from environmental sounds
and speech. The ability to hear more natural
environmental sounds can often provide a
“masking” effect for the tinnitus. It allows
the hearing

FOR the past 12 months I have
Q
had heart palpitations which
have got progressively worse. My
blood tests were all clear and a
24-hour ECG was normal.
Last week I collapsed and was
taken to A&E where I was
resuscitated and told I had atrial
fibrillation (AF). I was given
emergency tablets until I could
see my GP and told I would be
referred to an AF clinic.
I rang my GP only to be told by
a receptionist that they had no
letter from the hospital and I could
only be offered an appointment
two weeks later. I was also told it
was not her job to follow up the
letter and I should do this myself.
Surely this cannot be right?
IT sounds as if you have had
A
an intermittent problem
with your heart rate and the
diagnosis can be easy to miss if it
behaves itself at the time you are
having a test done.
If a 24-hour ECG does not pick
up a cause for palpitations then
it is possible to do an ECG
recording for eight days but
there can be long waits for this.
I understand your frustration
with the lack of communication
between the hospital and your
GP surgery which doctors and
surgery staff find just as
infuriating as patients.
Unfortunately due to a lack of
hospital secretarial staff, it can
mean that letters can take weeks
to get to GPs and busy surgery
staff find it really difficult to find
the time to get the information.
My surgery staff often tell me
they have to wait for 10 minutes
or more to be put through to the
correct extension, only to then
have to wait a further 10 minutes
before they are told that the
letter has not yet been typed up.
Your story is, I’m afraid, all too
familiar to me – the whole NHS
is stretched and despite the best
Why’s my

efforts of staff the service being
provided is not what everyone
would like it to be.
MY friend had radiotherapy
Q
and chemotherapy last
autumn for throat cancer. He has
been given the all-clear but seven
months on he still has an
extremely dry mouth and cannot
eat properly without drinking a lot
of fluids and having food puréed.
He has tried different things
suggested by the speech therapist
but nothing seems to work. Also,
he has not put back the 3st he lost
after treatment. It would appear
that his salivary glands need to be
stimulated. How can this be done?
I SUSPECT the radiotherapy
A
is to blame for the problems
with his mouth, rather than the
chemotherapy. The aim of
radiotherapy is to destroy cancer
cells with high-energy beams of
radiation but unfortunately, even
with highly-targeted beams, it is
very difficult not to damage
normal tissues surrounding the
cancerous cells. This means that
it is common for patients
undergoing radiotherapy to their
throat to experience
inflammation and ulceration of
the lining of the mouth and
throat and for the cells that
produce saliva to be damaged as
well.
This damage is often
permanent so the salivary
glands no longer work and
cannot be stimulated back into
action. Artificial saliva in the
form of gels or sprays can be
helpful, along with drinking sips
of fluid while eating. Scarring in
the throat can also mean that
swallowing solid foods is
impossible without discomfort.
If your friend’s weight loss
means he is now underweight he
should see his GP about having
liquid nutritional supplements.
If he is managing to maintain
his weight, albeit at a lower level,
and eat a reasonably balanced
diet via sloppy foods, then try
not to be too concerned.

W
HEN Steve Sippitt
banged his ankle on
an ironing board he
dismissed it as an
innocuous injury that
would soon heal. “I
never imagined it would be the
start of more than a year of pain
that would end with me having
surgery,” says the 64-year-old
from Roydon, Essex.
Like many people his age Steve
had suffered from varicose veins
in his legs for around a decade.
However, apart from them
looking unsightly and being a bit
uncomfortable at times, he’d not
thought much more about them.
That all changed in June 2016
when he knocked his left ankle in
the kitchen of his home. “At the
time it hurt and did bleed a little
bit but I went to bed that night
and didn’t think much more
about it,” he says.
“Yet as the weeks went by,
what had started as a tiny cut
and patch of red skin, developed
into a full-blown wound that was
opening up more and more and
getting really painful.”
Rather than healing, the wound
had developed into a leg ulcer.
“The pain was unbelievable – it
was like someone pinching me
without any respite whatsoever,”
recalls Steve, who runs a
company selling crystals and
stones.
“As it got worse it throbbed like
it had its own heartbeat and I
really struggled to sleep. I’d had
an ulcer a few years before, most
likely caused by my untreated
varicose veins, so I started
dressing it myself daily and took
plenty of painkillers.”
As with many of the 15 million
Britons with varicose veins, what
Steve didn’t realise was that the
same condition which caused
them, known as “reflux” – when
the blood in the veins flows down
the leg rather than up, putting
High-tech

pressure on the veins lower down
– also causes deterioration in skin
quality, which can lead to ulcers.
“I know now that this pressure
on the leg means that skin can
break down at the slightest
knock or bump, even though my
varicose veins weren’t terrible,”
says Steve. After the weeks
turned into months with no
improvement he saw his GP. “He
said unless I had the underlying
cause dealt with – the varicose

veins – the ulcer might return or
may never even heal properly.”
This is because traditional
treatment for ulcers relies on
dressings to keep the ulcer clean
and compression bandaging to
prevent the reflux. While such
treatment normally heals ulcers it
can take a long time, often many
months. Then once healed, if the
reflux is not treated, there is a
high chance the ulcer will recur.
Now in agony and knowing how

difficult it is to get varicose veins
treated on the NHS due to budget
cuts, Steve scoured the internet for
private treatment options.
He sought help from Dr David
West, an interventional radiologist
and medical director of Veincentre,
a clinic which specialises solely in
varicose vein removal. “Ulcers often
occur in presence of varicose veins,”
he explains. “If you have longstanding reflux in your leg, causing
deterioration in skin quality, even a
small trauma such as a knock can
cause it to break down and an ulcer
develop.”
Recent research published in the
JAMA medical journal suggests
that people with varicose veins are
at an increased risk of developing
a potentially fatal blood clot –
either a DVT, a clot in the legs
which can, rarely, lead to
amputation or death due to a
pulmonary embolism (a clot which
travels into the lungs). They also
have double the risk of peripheral
Daily Express Tuesday April 24 2018
arterial disease, which reduces
blood flow to the arms and legs, the
study warned.
The researchers, from China
Medical University, were unsure
whether varicose veins cause blood
clots or are a symptom of deeper
problems, which are a common
cause of varicose veins and the
more serious clotting problems.
Whatever the cause, they believe
inflammation in the veins is
probably involved.
Dr West adds that varicose veins
do not have to look severe in order
to cause problems. “Cosmetically
speaking, Steve did not have
particularly bad varicose veins yet
the ulcer would not heal,” he says.
Dr West used a technique called
EVLA – endovenous laser ablation
– the gold-standard treatment for
varicose veins recommended by
NICE. The procedure which takes
around 20 minutes and may require
more than one session, destroys the
vein and stops the reflux which
caused the ulcer. Dr West says
increasing numbers of people are
choosing to have their ulcers
treated in this way as the healing
time tends to be quicker than
traditional methods.
“It is increasingly being accepted
and is certainly our experience,
that treating the ulcer by
addressing the cause, using laser
technology, is quicker and more
effective than waiting for the ulcer
to heal by bandaging,” he says.
Steve had his treatment in
September last year and says the
effects were almost instantaneous.
“The pain stopped as soon as I got
off the couch,” he says.
Just over six months later his
ulcer has almost healed. “I’m so
pleased with the way it’s healing
and there has been virtually no pain
since the procedure,” he adds. “I
wish I’d had it done sooner.”
lEVLA costs from £1,695 per leg.

looks at a heart pill
with a difference
E HEAR so much about the health
benefits of a Mediterranean diet yet
for all our best intentions it’s not
quite as easy to follow here, without
the year-round sun and fragrant
vegetables and fruit.
So scientists have come up with the answer
– the wonders of a Mediterranean diet in a pill.
It’s the work of Cambridge scientists and, in
what is a world first, the all-natural, over-thecounter product has been granted a patent.
Ateronon Heart slows down the build-up of
plaque in the arteries, preventing heart disease,
and it’s largely thanks to tomatoes.
Tomatoes have long been known as good for
health, especially when cooked. The magic
ingredient is lycopene, which makes them red,
but there have been two problems. The first has
always been getting enough in an everyday diet,
even in the Med, but a single Ateronon Heart pill
contains more lycopene than 2lb of cooked
tomatoes.
The second is that lycopene is poorly
absorbed by the body in its natural state but
now scientists have combined it with milk
protein, which enables the body to absorb more.
The result is a simple-to-take food
supplement, something that’s a relief to so many
of us as heart problems often occur – and get
worse – as we get older.
Ateronon Heart is the result of £12m research
and development, including a clinical study at
Cambridge University Hospital NHS Foundation
Trust (Addenbrooke’s).
The research shows that an Ateronon Heart
pill a day benefits those with heart problems.
It improves the health of blood vessels in those
who have suffered heart attacks along with
sufferers of angina and other cardiac problems.
Rated Excellent
by our customers
Those who took the pills for two months saw an
improvement in the cells that line the inside of
blood vessels, leaving them more than 50 per
cent wider by the end of the study.
Heart disease remains the UK’s leading killer,
with 160,000 deaths each year, including the
40,000 who die from a stroke. Every seven
minutes someone in the UK will have a heart
attack and every 12 minutes someone will suffer
a stroke.
A million men and nearly 500,000 women are
living with the after-effects of a heart attack
while 1.2 million men and 900,000 women are
living with chronic angina.
There’s so much we can do to help ourselves
in the way of diet and lifestyle. We should steer
clear of fatty foods and make sure we go for a
good walk each day – or even visit the gym.
Along with that, Ateronon Heart can help with
the heart’s natural working and has been proved
to have a noticeable effect on those who already
suffer heart problems.
More studies are taking place with the pill’s
developer Cambridge Nutraceuticals set to
release findings later this year.
A Mediterranean diet isn’t something that
suits all of us so Ateronon Heart – the “tomato
pill” – can be the answer.

M
Y director chum Jon
cut his teeth in the
early days of
Crimewatch. A major
hazard of this partlive show, he tells me,
was the squad of detectives who sat
behind the presenters, “ready to
take your call”.
Sometimes they would wave at
the cameras, partly because they’d
promised their kids, partly because
they needed to prove to their
wives that they were where they
said they were.
Something similar, I think, goes
on with programmes like
Holidays Unpacked (C4),
whose presenters are obliged to go
off and have what looks like a lovely
time, while getting paid for it.
Those who have partners and
children, or indeed, even a gimlet-
Matt Baylis
on last
night’s TV
eyed parakeet, back home are likely
to get a frosty reception on their
return, unless it looks like they
didn’t really have much fun.
“We don’t just want to lie on the
beach any more,” said presenters
Lucy Hedges and Morland Sanders
at the start of last night’s show.
What they meant was, “Yes we do
but we can’t.” Fulfilling her duty,
Lucy went off to Israel, where she
had a terrifying time abseiling down
a cliff in the Judaean desert. “This,”
said her guide Yoash, “is one of the
friendliest deserts in the world.”
(Given the reputation of deserts,
generally, I’m not sure that helped.)
Right across the globe, Morland
was in Costa Rica, white water
rafting and surfing.
When his rental car encountered
monsoon rains and a small
mudslide, he tutted and said,
“Imagine doing this with your wife
and kids,” which was a line entirely
directed, I think, at his own wife
and kids.
But the bigger fib is the idea
behind the show, which is that you
could go further afield for the same
amount of money and fun. The
pound may be worth pips against
the euro but Costa Rica is an
11-hour flight away – that’s the bit
no one wants to do with their kids.
Picks of the day
Drama: The Split, 9pm, BBC1
This new drama from award-winner
Abi Morgan is a clever exploration of
modern marriage and the legacy of
divorce seen through the eyes of the
Defoes – a family of female lawyers at
the heart of London’s emotionally
charged divorce circuit. Leading
divorce lawyer Hannah Stern has
walked out on the family firm to join
rival company Noble & Hale. She now
faces her sister Nina and mother
Ruth, also successful family lawyers,
on the opposing side of high-profile
divorce cases. Davey McKenzie, a
Sportswear mogul, and his childhood
sweetheart Goldie embark on a
painful divorce and a wrangle for
control of their business. Deborah
Findlay, Annabel Scholey, Nicola
Walker and Fiona Button (all left) star.
If you’ve seen how people will
behave over a parking space or a
bag on a bus seat, it should come as
no surprise that there are killers
walking among us, ready to take a
life at the drop of a hat. In wartime,
(and when isn’t it wartime,
somewhere?) such people can be
very useful, as Secret Agent
Selection: WW2 (BBC2)
reminds us.
Of course, what the Special
Operations Executive (and its
recreated, TV equivalent) looked
for was less of a violent streak, more
an ability to follow orders and keep
a cool head while following them.
This became particularly obvious
last night, as the nine remaining
contenders underwent a further,
vital part of the original
recruitment process. In two groups,
their task was to enter a guarded

Comedy: Cunk On Britain,
10pm, BBC2
In an era which seems to
be dominated by fake
news and false information
it is often difficult to clearly
spot the differentiation
between truth and satire.
The latter is done with
aplomb week after week
by Diane Morgan (left) in
this brilliant series. Mark
Lawson joins Philomena
Cunk in this episode to
discuss the first half of the
20th century, an era of two
world wars but no World
Cup. From the razor sharp
mind of Charlie Brooker,
this is always entertaining.

WHEN BUYING A FUNERAL PLAN HERE ARE A FEW TIPS
TO HELP YOU MAKE THE BEST DECISIONS
Entertainment: This Time Next Year, 8pm, ITV
Davina McCall (above, with one of tonight’s guests,
Minesh) meets a young couple desperate to start a
family against all odds and a brave father hoping to
give his daughter the gift of life for the second time.
We also find out about a single mum looking for love,
an IT manager pledging to take to the stage and a
lady who wants to hear her children’s voices.
NB: 10.45PM IN EIRE AND NI
Drama: Flight HS13,
11pm, C4
Geography: Ben Nevis: The Venomous Mountain,
9pm, Channel 5
We scaled Everest last week in the series opener and
tonight we are on British soil to tackle the impressive
Ben Nevis. In the hour-long show, Britain’s most iconic
mountain, created 350 million years ago by the collapse
of a giant volcano, is examined. First climbed in 1771, it
now receives more than 100,000 visitors a year, some
of whom never return home alive.

hut without being discovered. The
challenge started out rather dully,
with lots of people counting
seconds and advancing slowly.
In its later stages, though, it had
the quality of one of those plucky
war films of the early Sixties – the
agents in the trees holding their
breath while waiting for the guard
to turn his back, discovery (and
imaginary death) always just one
heartbeat away. For the first time,
in this barren, stripped-back
setting, there seemed to be some
link between the stories of the real
SOE heroes and the trials being
undertaken on-screen.
You couldn’t help but root for the
winning team and join in their joy
as they received a crate of brown
ale. This being a fully immersive
SOE training, of course, the bottle
opener was not supplied.
It might mean getting to
bed later than usual
but this Dutch drama
is well worth the
sluggish start you may
make to your day
tomorrow. The story,
which Channel 4
describes as “tense”,
centres on a woman
called Liv who is
searching for the truth
behind the mysterious
disappearance of her
husband. Jeroen
Spitzenberger (right)
and Katja Schuurman
star in the first of 10
episodes of this
promising series.
What is included in the plan?
Most plans cover the Funeral Director’s services
but not all guarantee third party costs such as
Cremation & Ministers fees. Dignity guarantees
your loved ones will have no more to pay for the
services in their plans.
How safe is your money?
Dignity offer some of the most financially secure
funeral plans available in Britain today. Your
money goes into the National Funeral Trust
where the amount required for the funeral is
carefully managed until it’s needed.
Who provides the Funeral Plan guarantee?
Some funeral plans are tied to one individual
funeral director and if they were to go out of
business, your plan could be at risk. With a
Dignity Funeral Plan, it’s Dignity themselves
that provide the guarantee. They are a secure
and stable British company with a national
network of over 1,200 owned and approved
funeral directors.
What level of service will your loved
ones get?
Some plan providers vary the level of
bereavement support your loved ones have
access to, depending on the plan option you
buy. This is not the case with Dignity. Your loved
ones will be able to access support whenever
they need it – 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
How flexible is the plan?
Dignity’s plans are portable across the UK
so you can move without the worry of any
additional charge. You also have the flexibility
to personalise your plan to let your family know
what kind of funeral service you would like,
without the worry of additional charges*.

Someone close is a good influence
on you. A tendency to cling to familiar
routines has inhibited your progress. You will
now find it easier to try new things. Taking a
long-distance trip or earning an advanced
degree will be challenging but stimulating.

FAITH, HOPE AND SUE
In vain Rupert and Bill plead
their innocence and point out
that they really were stranded
up the tree. The man is very
dull and obstinate and will not
believe them. He makes them
help to push the boat into the
water and then leads them off
through the mud and up to his
shed. “You stop here,” he
grunts, “until I can get in touch
with my brother and then I’ll
decide what to do with you.”

Lentils are often overlooked as a salad ingredient but can add substance to a meal.
This mix of colour also adds variety to green versions. Serves 4.
INGREDIENTS
METHOD
400g tinned green lentils
1) Mix the lentils with
the garlic and cumin
in a bowl.
2) Add the onion,
apricots, peppers and
broccoli florets, and
mix gently. Crumble
the cheese over the
top. Scatter over the
sunflower seeds.
3) Make the dressing
by putting the lemon
juice, oil, coriander,
and salt and pepper
to taste into a large
salad bowl and
whisk together.
4) Add to the lentil
mix and leave to
stand for at least
half an hour
before serving.
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 small red onion, finely chopped
85g dried apricots, roughly chopped
3 small peppers, seeded and chopped into squares
100g broccoli, broken into small florets
50g firm goat’s cheese
2 tablespoons toasted sunflower seeds
Juice of 1 lemon
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh coriander
Salt and pepper
Scorpio Oct 24 – Nov 22
You’re radiating positive energy.
People are responsive to your insightful
comments on everything from art to science
and culture. If you want to launch a blog or
podcast, now is the time to do so. Sending
out your thoughts will be stimulating.

Sagittarius Nov 23 – Dec 21
A moneymaking prospect is worth
pursuing. There will be a spiritually satisfying
element to this job. Instead of feeling like
you’re selling your soul, it will be like you’re
feeding it. Someone who admires your
humanitarian instincts has an offer to make.

RUPERT IN THE FLOODS No 21
The friends their story plead in vain;
“You stole the boat,” he says, “that’s plain.”
Your charms are evident. There’s a
good chance you’ll feel drawn to a colleague
who has always flirted with you. Beware of
mixing business with pleasure. If you’re
intent on having a relationship, one of you
should really find a new job.
Libra Sep 24 – Oct 23
A generous relative will give you a
gift. Make a point of displaying this treasure
in a prominent place where you can always
see it. Every time you catch sight of it, you’ll
feel a warm sense of reassurance. Treat
these as daily indulgences.
ALAN’S TIP OF THE DAY: Plant tender summer bulbs such as Eucomis (pineapple flower) and
Tigridia (peacock flower) in pots on a windowsill indoors to take root. Once the shoots appear
and there’s no longer any risk of frost they can be planted in outdoor tubs or used in borders.
Cancer June 22 – July 23
Conduct a passionate relationship
in private. You don’t want nosy people to
interfere with your love. In the past, you were
overly concerned with what people thought
of your personal life. The sooner you get
over this preoccupation, the better.

Leo July 24 – Aug 23
This is a good time to launch a
housecleaning project. Creating a clean,
orderly environment will make productivity
soar. It will also cause some stress-related
symptoms to disappear. Coming home to
chaos has taken a toll on your health.
0905 789 3705**
Virgo Aug 24 – Sep 23
Someone is intent on winning your
heart which is exciting yet confusing. Push
your fears aside and lean into love. If you’re
already in a relationship, arrange a short trip.
Enjoying a change of scenery will bring out
the best in you both.
0905 789 3706**
Capricorn Dec 22 – Jan 20
Friends in high places will be happy
to help you get a job interview. In the past,
you always insisted on reaching goals alone.
This has limited your success. We’re here to
help each other. Walking past avenues of
opportunity is immature and wasteful.
0905 789 3710**
Aquarius Jan 21 – Feb 19
Working with an artist will be
entertaining. You view things analytically,
while they take an emotional approach.
Neither way is wrong; they bring different
results. You need to get out of your partner’s
way when they’re developing a good idea.
0905 789 3711**
Pisces Feb 20 – Mar 20
Travelling with a group will be
enjoyable. Your ability to adapt to a situation
will serve you well. While others continually
complain about small inconveniences, you’ll
take everything in your stride. This positive
attitude will make you a great favourite.

DETOXIFYING THE BODY - NEWS - BY MARK JONES
L
iz has been on all of the
fad diets over the years
and nothing really worked
for her. As well as putting
on weight she felt sluggish,
tired and lack the energy and
enthusiasm she used to have in
her 20s and 30’s. At last, she’s
found the answer to all her
detox problems and she’s lost
weight too while she sleeps.
Read why Liz hasn’t felt this
good in 20 years!
“Since my early 20’s I’ve
gradually put weight on
over the years”
“Since my early 20’s I’ve
gradually put weight on over
the years. It started off with a
few pounds here and there and
gradually increased to the point
where I had to keep buying
a new wardrobe every year
because none of my clothes
would fit me anymore.”
“None of my clothes would
fit me anymore.”
“The weight was only part of
the problem. I also felt tired
and sluggish all the time and I
slowly lost my enthusiasm and
drive. It was as if all my energy
had been sucked out of me and
I was constantly tired and run
down all the time. This really
upset me as I’d always been an
active person and my family
also noticed the difference.
They kept asking me what was
wrong and why I didn’t really
want to leave the house and do
all the things I used to love.”
“I also felt tired and
sluggish all the time.”
“I’d gone to my doctor several
times over the years and he told
me I had to reduce my weight
and increase my activity to keep
my cholesterol, blood pressure
and weight from rising. The
“Such an easy
deep detox, and
an even deeper
night’s sleep!”
My energy levels
are like I’m
30 years old again
and I’ve lost
weight too”
problem was I had no energy or
will power to carry on dieting as
it had always failed in the past.”
The body benefits
from detoxing
“I read about how the body
benefits from detoxing and
wearing detox patches was one
of the ways impurities, toxins,
and
unhealthy
chemicals
can be drawn out of the skin
overnight by detoxing. I found
out that the Bioenergiser D-Tox
patch, when worn overnight on
the sole of the foot, increased
the heat, moisture, and sweat
in the sole of the foot. This
process, called detoxification,
drew out impurities within
the sweat glands. I was really
interested in this type of

therapy as it sounded exactly
what I needed!”
“Literally took seconds to
apply and they felt really
comfortable.”
“I’d tried everything else,
what did I have to lose? But
I had everything to gain if
it worked for me. For the
first time in ages, I actually
felt excited and energised
because I was doing something
for
myself
which
might
actually be beneficial to me.
That night I placed the detox
patches on each of the soles of
my feet before bed.
“I actually woke up rested
and full of energy. ”
It literally took seconds to apply
and they felt really comfortable.
I had to wait until the morning
to see the results!”
“That night I had the best
night sleep I’d had in ages, I
D-Tox patches
(if returned unopened and unused)
actually woke up restful and
full of energy. That in itself was
unusual and a relief from all
those restless nights of broken
sleep.
I also felt different,
less foggy and clearer in my
thoughts. I couldn’t wait to see
the what results I had from the
detox patches.”
“I could feel and see the
benefits straight away”
“WOW!
Each Bioenergiser
D-Tox patch was moist and
covered in residue from the
sweat that came out overnight.
The pad was covered in toxins
so I knew it was already
working after day one. That
morning I even noticed that
my appetite was normal and I
didn’t have my usual cravings
throughout the day. I didn’t
really understand the process
involved but I could feel and
see the benefits straight away.”
“Over the next few weeks, I felt
more like I did in my 20’s and
30’s - full of energy, enthusiastic
and I wanted to do things. I’d
not felt like that in such a long

• Each box contains 10 patches
• Recommended at least twice a week
• Can be used nightly
“The
Bioenergiser
D-Tox
patches were cleansing my
body and removing the toxins
that had built up over the years.
I can honestly say that my sleep
was back to normal and didn’t
feel exhausted at the end of the
day. This in itself was amazing!”
“And I’ve never felt better
or fitter… the weight has
just dropped off”
“I’ve been on the Bioenergiser
D-Tox patches now for three
months and I’ve never felt
better or fitter - both physically
and mentally. I am more active
now and look forward to going
out and enjoying time with the
family.
I’m the calmest and most
relaxed I’ve been in years and
even my clothes are loose on
me now. The weight has just
dropped off and I’m now active
again.”

Economy set to
feel chill of the
beastly easterly
THE Beast from the East hit Britain’s
economy in the first quarter, official figures
are expected to show this week.
Experts at the EY ITEM Club are
predicting gross domestic product (GDP)
could be cut in half from 0.4 per cent in the
fourth quarter to as low as 0.2 per cent when
the Office for National Statistics reveals
data on Friday.
The preliminary figures will shed light on
the economic cost of heavy snowfall that
brought parts of Britain to a standstill last
‘The economy is
chugging along
at a steady rate’
month, and will play a part in determining
the course for interest rates this year.
“The severe weather seen at the end of
February and the first half of March appears
to have weighed down significantly on economic activity at the beginning of the year,”
said the Item Club.
“We expect GDP growth in the first quarter was dragged down to around 0.2-0.3 per
cent quarter-on-quarter.” The forecast

chimes with that of PricewaterhouseCoopers and the National Institute of Economic
and Social Research, which have pencilled
in similar levels of reduced growth.
Retailers bore the brunt of the extreme
weather, which saw people stay away from
the high street. This was reflected in official
figures out last week, which showed that
retail sales recorded their biggest quarterly
fall in a year.
The Item Club predicts GDP will bounce
back to 0.5 per cent in the second quarter
as some of the economic activity lost to the
severe weather is made up.
However, for the year it expects GDP to
grow by 1.6 per cent in 2018, a downgrade
from an earlier forecast of 1.7 per cent,
which would have matched 2017’s figure.
Howard Archer, chief economic adviser
to the EY ITEM Club, described British
economic growth as “steady but uninspiring”, and warned over Brexit risks and a
potential hike in interest rates over 2018.
He said: “The UK economy is chugging
along at a fairly steady, but uninspiring rate.
Inflation continues to drop and we expect a
tight jobs market to deliver some uptick in
pay growth.”

Co-op’s £137m Nisa go-ahead New-look Capita to raise £700m
THE Co-op has received the all-clear
from the competition watchdog for
its £137.5million takeover of Nisa.
The Competition and Markets
Authority (CMA) will not refer the
takeover for a more in-depth investigation because it has concluded
shoppers will not be worse off as a
result of the deal. The CMA said the
two firms do not compete because
the Co-op is a retailer and Nisa is a
wholesaler.
Sheldon Mills, senior director of
mergers at the CMA, said: “We’ve
found there is sufficient competition
in both the wholesale and retail
sectors to ensure that shoppers are
not worse off.”
OUTSOURCING giant Capita is to
tap investors for £701million and
embark on a new strategy after
booking a hefty annual loss.
The group said yesterday pre-tax
losses for 2017 came in at £513.1million
as the firm counted the cost of
impairments and provisions linked to
acquisitions. The figure compares

LONDON’S blue-chip index made
gains yesterday as the pound
continued to fall on expectations that
the Bank of England would delay an
interest rate rise.
The FTSE 100 climbed 30.7 points
to 7,398.87 over the session, while the
pound fell by 0.36 per cent against the
US dollar to 1.395.
The pound was initially knocked
last week after Bank of England
governor Mark Carney said several
Brexit-related events would impact
rate rises, signalling that there would
only be gradual increases.
In UK stocks, shares in Clarkson
tumbled as the shipping services
giant warned over profits after being
blown off course by a “challenging
environment”.
The FTSE 250 firm said profits for
both the first half and the full year are
“anticipated to be materially below
those of last year”. By the end of the
session shares were down by
17.87 per cent or 555p to 2,550p.
The biggest risers on the FTSE 100
were St James’s Place up 37p to
1,146.5p, Smith and Nephew up 37p
to 1,389p and Old Mutual up 6.6p to
249.2p. The biggest fallers were NMC
Health down 128p to 3,560p, Bunzl
down 55p to 2,075p, and WPP down
28.5p to 1,118p.

RACING: ELLIOTT AND MULLINS FIGHT FOR CHAMPIONSHIP
Daily Express Tuesday April 24 2018
Mullins to land first blow
WILLIE MULLINS might be
on the back foot in his
attempt to continue his
10-year reign as Ireland’s
champion jump trainer but he
can dominate today’s
Champion Chase at
Punchestown.
As the betting suggests,
Douvan can lead the way
home for Mullins with his
stable companions, Min and
Un De Sceaux, taking the
minor honours.
Mullins, attempting to
become champion trainer for
the 12th time, is currently €521,143 adrift of Gordon
Elliott, who is seeking a first
trainers’ title.
Bookmakers believe Elliott,
8-11, can become the new king
with Mullins trading at 5-4.
But never underestimate
Mullins. He clawed his way
back at last year’s
Punchestown meeting when
By Chris Goulding
ending Elliott’s dream of
becoming top dog.
Elliott, 40, has taken all
before him this season,
winning both the English and
Irish Grand National and
becoming the first Irish
trainer to send out 200
winners in a season.
“I was heartbroken not
taking the title last year,” said
Elliott. “We’ve had an
unbelievable year.
“And to win both Grand
Nationals was incredible. But
if I could swap every single
one of those to be champion
trainer I would.”
Mullins, 61, regarded as
Irish royalty, was born to be a
champion. His father Paddy
made history after he trained
Dawn Run to become the first
and only horse to win both the
Champion Hurdle and

ace in the pack in Samcro.
The talented novice has the
option of stepping up in grade
for Friday’s Punchestown
Champion Hurdle rather than
one of the lesser events.
Michael O’Leary, the owner
of the unbeaten Samcro, is
giving Elliott all the support
he can.
This is not surprising as
Elliott trained Tiger Roll to
win this year’s Grand National
for the Ryanair boss.
Also, there is an ironic twist
in this season’s battle for
championship honours.
Two years ago, O’Leary fell
out with Mullins over
increased training fees and
removed 60 horses from his
yard, the majority went to
Elliott.
Had that not happened,
Samcro might be punching for
Mullins rather than the heir to
throne.

Elliott, the son of a panel
beater, has used his wits and
hard graft to climb the
slippery ladder to success in
the unforgiving world of
training racehorses.
His achievements can be
attributed to the two years he
spent working for Martin Pipe,
the 15-times champion trainer
who revolutionised the art of
preparing racehorse.
“Gordon gets the best out of
every horse,” said Pipe. “And
he wins with all types of
horses.
“I’m very proud of him. He’s
got great gallops and good
staff. You’ve got to have good

BOXING: BELLEW BASHES DRUG CHEATS
Main picture: ADAM DAVY
Only ring death
will force action
By Michael Johns
TONY BELLEW
has
delivered
a
devastating
attack
on
the
sport’s
authorities,
saying they will
only take drug
cheats
seriously
when a steroid
user
commits
“premeditated
murder” by killing
someone in the
ring.
Lives are
more
important
than money
wood it isn’t me – they will
start banning people for life
and that will send a message.
“But it will take someone
losing their life because
people
understand
that
lives are more important
than money.”
Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez
is the most recent
high-profile name to
have received a ban
for failing a drugs
test. The Mexican,
suspended
for
six months last
week,
blamed
the results on
contaminated
meat.
And
Bellew
said: “Six months –
what’s the point? No fine – are
you messing me about?”
Bellew is back in action
on May 5 when he faces
David Haye in a muchanticipated rematch at the
O2 in London.
The Liverpool heavyweight
shocked
former
world
champion Haye when they
met last year, stopping him
53
Virdi turns
into winner
for Surrey
Surrey’s 19-year-old
spinner Amar Virdi
finished with four
wickets as he helped
seal a 139-run victory
over Hampshire in
Division One of the
County Championship.
Sam Northeast
provided stubborn
resistance on the final
day at the Kia Oval but
his eventual dismissal
for 129 in the evening
session secured victory
for the hosts with
23.3 overs left.
Hampshire started
the day on 116-4, with a
distant victory target of
472, and their
rearguard came up
short as Virdi took two
wickets to end with
figures of 4-79, while
cricket
By Hugh Walker
23-match winless run
at home with their
101-run victory over
Middlesex.
A bleak streak
stretching back
1,306 days to
September 2014 finally
came to an end, with
Middlesex posting 340
all out chasing 442.
James Harris,
unbeaten on 64, and
Tom Helm produced a
ninth-wicket stand of
106 as the visitors
battled against the
inevitable.
James Bracey’s
unbeaten 120 was not
enough to stop
Gloucestershire falling
THE WAR ON DRUGS:
Bellew says it will be
premeditated murder if a
steroid user kills someone
during a contest
in the 11th round after the
Londoner suffered a ruptured
Achilles halfway through their
fight.
The build-up to their first
bout
was
marred
by
controversy, with Haye fined
£25,000
by
the
British
Boxing Board of Control after
admitting
his
pre-fight
comments
brought
boxing into disrepute.
Haye has adopted
BANNED:
Alvarez
received a
six-month
sanction
for failing
a drugs
test
a respectful tone in recent
months
but
Bellew,
a
former world champion at
cruiserweight, has scoffed at
suggestions he is a changed
man.
“He’s about as humble as
Madonna,” said Bellew. “David
wasn’t humbled, he has
just got humble pie on his
face because what
he said, he didn’t
do. Everything I
said in the build-up came
true. David is trying to
market himself in a better
way: look at his training
videos, he says nothing
controversial.
“This is the fella who said
he was going to render me
unconscious, this is the same
fella who said that I’m the
worst world champion in
history ever.
“I don’t forget that. Those
thoughts
don’t
change
overnight, you don’t go from
being
the
worst
world
champion ever to thinking,
‘Right, this guy can really
fight’.
“It’s just that it didn’t work
for him and because it didn’t
work, he has now changed his
approach. But his mindset is
still the same when it comes
to me.”
Asked what his motivation
is ahead of the rematch,
Bellew
said:
“To
prove
everyone wrong – again.
“It seems to be a common
theme:
Bellew
is
the
massive underdog and he
just wants to prove everyone
wrong.
“The plan is just to do it
again and win at all costs.
That’s the difference between
me and him: you will see
when we get to a certain
level it’s just win at all costs, I
have to win.
“I’m not someone who can
come home and just accept
losing.
“I’m a winner through
and through and that’s
one of my strongest
attributes. I have to
win and I will do
whatever takes to win
on May 5.
“I’m
in
good
shape, I’m in good
spirits and I’m ready
for another war.”
JOY: Virdi celebrates another wicket yesterday
Jade Dernbach also
claimed a couple of
final-day scalps.
Yorkshire needed
just one hour to wrap
up a 164-run victory
over Nottinghamshire
at Headingley.
Ben Coad took 6-81
in the second innings
to complete a 10-wicket
match haul, with Notts
mustering 238 all out in
search of 403.
Notts’ Tom Moores
(40 not out) and Jake
Ball (30) did post a

SHAUN MURPHY saw
his world title hopes go
up in smoke yesterday
against his Crucible
bogeyman Jamie Jones.
The Magician lost a Betfred
World Championship firstround thriller 10-9 in Sheffield
against the world No 51 from
Neath.
It was the second time in six
years that the 2005 champion
had been made to vanish by
the 30-year-old Jones at the
same
stage
of
the
competition.
And a bewildered Murphy,
35, was left wondering why
Jones fails to pull more rabbits
out of the hat at regular tour
events.
Murphy said: “I had a chance
in the decider and that’s what
you want – but I missed it and
that’s top-class sport. There
were lots of other mistakes
and chances in the earlier
frames, though. Those little
errors can come back to haunt

“In his team I would want to

“I’m just glad I won this
tournament when I was young
and didn’t understand fear
and had no battle scars.
Because now I’m older and
more frightened.”

10-8 six years ago, now plays

quarter-finals – the stage he

maybe it was gone – but then
he missed straight away.
“That has to be the best win
of my career, I have never felt
pressure like that before.
“Obviously I beat Shaun
here six years ago at the same
stage, at the same times, on
the same days and was also 5-4
down after the first session.
Maybe it was meant to be.
“I probably took being a
professional for granted a bit
and did not dedicate myself to
the sport but this season I
have treated it properly. It
might be paying off now.
“I did have a heart to heart
with a mate a while ago, it was
a realisation that I need to be
harder on myself and push
myself. The top players live on
the table, it’s no coincidence.”
Mark Allen waded in to the
Crucible football shirt ban row
after easing into the second
round.
The Masters champion beat
debutant Liam Highfield 10-5
to set up a last-16 clash with
world No1 Mark Selby’s
conqueror Joe Perry. Allen
then pointedly celebrated with
super-fan Brian Wright, 48, in
the front row – who is not
allowed to wear his Coventry
City shirts for the first time in
29 years.
World Snooker supremo
Barry Hearn insisted last week
that he wanted a stricter and
smarter dress code for the
blue-riband event – and also to
avoid rival fans antagonising
each other.
Allen said, however: “I went
over to Brian at the end and
just laughed with him that he
didn’t have his football top on.
He did say, ‘Wait until the final,
I may have something in store’.
“Look, the world has gone
nuts that you can’t wear a
football top to come and watch
snooker. I think one of Barry’s
reasons was the image of the
sport.
“What would you rather as a
player – play in front of a
packed house with people
wearing football shirts, or play
in China, as we do, in front of
three people and a dog?
“It is a ridiculous statement
to make and I’m sure Barry
could have come up with a
better reason than that.”

Thepchaiya Un-Nooh will try

Bangkok, dubbed
‘The Thai-phoon’, is
58th in the world and
qualified on his 33rd
birthday last week.
He has a 17.12secs average
shot time and will need all
that and more against Higgins,
42, who is still hurting after
losing last year’s final to Mark
Selby from 10-4 up.
Un-Nooh, below, said: “I know
I must do my best because
millions of Thai fans will
be watching on TV
back home – and my
wife is flying over.
“In the past I just
tried to pot
everything really fast
and didn’t use any

to improve.
“But I am at my best when I
play fast. Hopefully my game
can cope with longer matches.”

“I’m not sure
why and can
not
understand why they
didn’t
come
back and say,
‘Here’s how you
can help’, because
their schedule is not
what it needs to be.”
Pelley has already shown his
interest in promoting joint
ventures between Europe’s
top men and women golfers.
Next month the field for the
GolfSixes event in St Albans
will incorporate leading women
players, Hull included. The
problem is there will only be
five of them.
The European Golf Team
Championship at Gleneagles
in August offers a wider spread
with half the 64 players women.
There will be a novelty element
to both with women competing
alongside men in what will be
interesting tests of the concept
of mixed golf but the women’s
game needs to thrive as a pure
entity too and for that to
happen in Europe, it would
make sense to align itself
much more closely with the
men’s tour.
Morocco
provided
an
example. The Lalla Meryem
Cup ran parallel to the Morocco
Open
on
the
European Tour. So
while
the
men
played
the
red
course at the Royal
Golf Dar Es Salam,
the women were
playing the blue
course. Spectators
could drift from
one to the other and realise
that, hey, these girls can play.
The play-off that Sweden’s
Jenny Haglund won to clinch
the women’s event was much
more
exciting
than
the
conclusion to Alexander Levy’s
victory. The women’s prize
fund may have been 450,000
euros compared to 2.5m euros
for the men – but at least there
was some income.
The Oates Vic Open, held in
Australia in February, went
further. Separate 144-player
events
were
played
on
neighbouring courses before
the men and women were
brought together for the final
day. After the second of two
cuts, the men and women went
out in alternate
pairs on the same
course as the two
events reached a
climax.
A step too far?
European
Tour
member Richard
Green played in
the event and says
it worked. “This sort of format,
alongside the men, is a great
way to get extra interest in the
game,” said the Australian.
“The Ladies European Tour
players are a damn hardworking bunch of girls who
deserve to have a job and
there’s got to be something
that kicks it along again.”
It’s great

WOMEN’S professional
golf in Europe is in crisis
and it is down to the
men to save it.
Last
weekend’s
Lalla
Meryem Cup in Morocco was
the first standalone Ladies
European Tour event of the
year.
There are just two more
this summer – the Ladies
French Open and
the
Estrella
Damm Open – in
a terribly empty
calendar.
There
are
some co-sanctioned
tournaments such as
the British Open and
Scottish Open and more minor
events like the Jabra Ladies
Open in France for both LET
members and players from its
feeder circuit, the Access
Series, but if you
are a female pro
golfer based in
Europe
the
picture
is
bleaker than
a Lowry.
No wonder
the likes of
Charley Hull
have headed
over
the
Atlantic
to
earn their living
on the LPGA
Tour – there simply
is not a living to be
made here.
The Ladies European Tour
cannot attract sponsors, so
the women’s game is shrinking
at professional level.
In an era when women’s
football, cricket and rugby are
expanding, this cannot be
right.
Keith Pelley, the chief
executive of the European
Tour, has offered to help, as
have the R&A and the LPGA
but the LET have not exactly
bitten their hands off.
“We are surprised that they
didn’t take us up on what we
believed was a really genuine

JOHN DALY and

their St Andrews rivalry
when the Old Course

Open Championship.
Daly won the 1995 Open
after edging out Rocca in
a play-off but only after
the Italian had sunk an
extraordinary 65-foot putt
at the 72nd hole to force
extra holes. “There is an
old sporting expression
that ‘no one remembers
who comes second’ but
just like Jean van de Velde
at Carnoustie, there are
exceptions to that rule,”
said Rocca.
“St Andrews is the place
where I hit the shot which
made me famous around
the world and I am
thrilled to have perhaps
one last chance to play at
such a great venue.”

WAVING
FAREWELL:
Wenger
will not be
short of job
offers
Goodbye… but
Wenger is a
wanted man
DAVID
DEIN
has
revealed offers of work
are already coming in
for Arsene Wenger
after the 68-year-old
announced that he will
quit Arsenal at the end
of the season.
The former chief executive
at the club has remained
close to the Frenchman
since bringing him to the
Premier League 22 years ago
and said in a Sky Sports
interview that Wenger is still
much in demand.
“He will have no shortage
of offers,” said Dein. “I
personally had calls from
various people yesterday,
saying, ‘Can I speak to him?’
“Over the last few years,
he has been approached by
some of the biggest clubs
in the world – Real Madrid,
Paris Saint-Germain – and
the national team wanted
him at one stage.
“The question is, will he
want to do it any more? It’s
getting more and more
difficult. It’s a bit of a
pressure cooker.
“Arsene is going to be 69
in October but he keeps
himself extraordinarily fit.
He is the same weight as
when I met him – 75 kilos.
He’s got a very active mind,
such a knowledge of the
game.”
Dein admitted Wenger
gambled last summer on
being able to turn around
the slump that led to Arsenal
finishing outside the top
four places for the first time
in his tenure.
But even until quite
recently, he was unwilling to
accept that it really was
time to go.
“At the end of last season
I was discussing with him,
‘Arsene, what do you want
to do?’ Are you going to
stay? Are you going to
leave?’ He was a bit

REPORTS
undecided,” said Dein. “It
was weighing everything up
– if you leave now, this is
the situation; if you go on,
you roll the dice another
year or two. What’s going to
happen?’
“He made his own mind
up and decided to stay. But
I felt in the last couple of
weeks, it has been getting
more difficult for him,
particularly with the team’s
results.
“I thought that, on a
personal
level,
it
was
unlikely that he was going
tostay after the end of the
season.”

for
Wenger’s
decision,
announced on Friday, to
end his current deal a
year early but that the
sentiment in the dressing
room falls a long way short
of any sort of guilt.
“We sit here in one boat
and we have not been that
successful over the past
couple of years,” said
the former Germany
defender.
“We won
trophies, we won
the FA Cup, but
in terms of

“There are a lot of people

manager. It has not sunk in
enough to say we are guilty,
but we are also responsible
for the situation.”
Arsenal are hopeful that
Mohamed
Elneny
will
play again this season
despite revealing that he
suffered ankle ligament
damage against West Ham
on Sunday.
The Egypt midfielder was
carried off on a stretcher on
the stroke of half-time
having fallen awkwardly
while competing for the ball
with Mark Noble.
Wenger said after the 4-1
win that the injury “didn’t
look good”.
But the club feel Elneny,
25, could make a return
before the end of the season
and feature in Egypt’s
World Cup campaign.

CAHILL: World Cup goal

Cahill, captain of his

including the cup final,
before Southgate names
his final 23-man squad,
which he has said he will

It is a tight schedule for
a man who has won six
major trophies in six
years at Chelsea but
who has been left out of
England’s
last
five
games and was not even
in the squad for the last
two.
“Of course I want to

all of the qualifying
games, so if I was to
miss out on the final
hurdle, it would be
disappointing. The most

down talk of
rift with Jose
PAUL POGBA insists
he has “no problem”
with manager Jose
Mourinho and denied
suggestions that he is
looking to quit
Manchester United in
the summer.
The £89million
France midfielder was
left on the bench by
Mourinho on several
occasions earlier this
season, sparking
speculation of a rift
between them and that
he could be sold.
That was fuelled by
Manchester City
manager Pep
Guardiola revealing he
had been offered Pogba
by the player’s agent,
Mino Raiola, in
January, claims that
Mourinho described as
“lies”.
But Pogba has
rediscovered his best
form in recent games,
helping United beat
Tottenham to reach
the FA Cup final, and
he told French TV
station Canal Plus
everything is fine
between them.
“I don’t have a
problem with him and I
don’t think he has a
problem with me,” said
Pogba. “He’s the coach
By Richard Tanner
and he has to make
choices. I am a player
and I accept them. I
have to answer on the
pitch.
“Mourinho has made
me captain [on
occasions] and he has
given me the keys, the
responsibilities of
playing for Manchester
United.”
Asked if Mourinho
has explained why he
has left him out on
occasions, he replied:
“No. It all depends on
the coach – there are
some who like to talk
to the players.
Mourinho, when he
makes a choice, you
have to accept it.”
Pogba has been
linked with a move to
Paris Saint-Germain
and Real Madrid but
added: “If I listened to
everyone, I would be
everywhere.
“Right now, I am at
Manchester United
and I am honestly only
thinking about the
present.
“Transfers are not in
my head. We are in the

Williams took charge of Sutton in 1979 and,
after a series of lower-league triumphs, guided

Coventry at Gander Green Lane. He would
later have a spell in charge of England Women.

satisfaction from Theo
Walcott’s winner.
Walcott kept his feet in a
crowded penalty area to score
with his side’s only shot on
target, and give Allardyce
something to smile about,
despite the fans who have
repeatedly called for him to go.
His five months at Goodison
Park have been little fun, and

members and season-ticket
holders to rate his performance
on a scale of zero to 10.
He tried to laugh that off last
Thursday by claiming he would
give himself a rating of 11, but
the Goodison faithful are not
buying it. One banner, spotted
hanging from the main stand
last night, read: ‘Our survey
says… Get out of our club.’
If Allardyce and his functional
style go this summer, at
least he will leave the legacy of
Walcott, signed from Arsenal
for £25million in January. The
winger can be maddeningly
inconsistent, but does have the
spark to change tight games.
Walcott said: “Since I’ve been
here with Sam, he has shown
so much faith in me. I just want
to repay that to him personally,
and to the team.
“Without a doubt there is
more to come from this team.
It’s been hit and miss at times
this season. They’ve had a
change in management and it’s
just a case of getting the
balance and getting to know
the way we want to play.
“With the amount of money
they’ve spent, and the size of
the club, you expect to be
higher up the table but we need
to trust each other a bit more
and have more confidence on
the ball.”
If Walcott is one piece of
credit in the bank for Allardyce,
perhaps another is a defence
much more disciplined than
the one that started the season.
Leighton Baines spilled blood
for the cause as he was smacked
by Ayoze Perez’s flailing elbow
late in the game, while Seamus
Coleman produced a victorysaving clearance right at the
end to prevent Dwight Gayle
from glancing in an equaliser.
Allardyce was his usual
bullish self. “Apart from the last
10 minutes, we dominated the
game,” he said. “There was only

Mascot Jack’s
virtual history
JACK McLINDEN, a
14-year-old Everton fan,
became part of Premier
League history last night
as a ‘remote’ match day
mascot against
Newcastle.
Jack suffers from
multiple health
conditions and has
severely reduced mobility
but was able to savour
the experience of joining
his heroes on the pitch
thanks to the
telepresence robot AV1.
The unit was carried
on to the field by the
Everton captain Phil
Jagielka, with Jack

also interacting with
players in the tunnel.

they put us under pressure in
the last five minutes and we
defended well. The controversy
over the survey was caused by
an error by one of our
employees. As a manager, you
just deal with it and move on.”
The victory was just what
Everton needed to spoil Rafa
Benitez’s 100th match as
Newcastle manager. A run of
four straight wins before last
night had ended the relegation
worries, but the club still have
other problems.
Benitez has worked miracles
to drag Newcastle to safety on
a limited budget, yet the
uncertainty off the field shows
little sign of abating. Owner
Mike Ashley remains under
pressure from fans to leave, but
is deeply unconvinced that
Amanda Staveley’s PCP Capital
Partners is the right buyer.
Ashley is understood to have
raised his sale price from £300m
to £400m this week, meaning a
deal with Staveley looks less
likely than ever. That raises the
question as to whether Benitez
will be given adequate funding
for next season – and if not,
whether he will stick around.
In an awful first half Everton
should have gone ahead in the
33rd minute, but Phil Jagielka
steered over from four yards
after Michael Keane flicked on
a corner. Six minutes after the
interval they did, as Walcott
collected Yannick Bolasie’s
right-wing cross at the far post,
via a bounce off DeAndre
Yedlin, and manoeuvred himself
into space before steering a
shot high into the net from
close range.
Gayle went on for Islam
Slimani but immediately skied
a great chance over. “They took
their chance and we didn’t take
ours,” said Benitez ruefully.

still remember the deep,
clawing feeling of dread
as he walked to the
penalty spot to take the
kick
which
secured
Liverpool’s
fourth
European Cup in eight
years.
He recalled how he had taken
a practice penalty in the warmup over two hours earlier which
went so badly his team-mates
had thought the best policy
was to tell him, ‘Don’t worry,
it’ll never go to penalties’.
“As I was walking up I was
thinking, ‘Am I going to be hero
or villain?,’” said Kennedy. “My
thoughts were scrambled and
when I placed the ball, I could
hear in my mind the lads saying,
‘Why has Joe [Fagan] picked
him?’ If I could have had
something beam me up at that
very moment I would have.”
Hours
later
Liverpool’s
players and coaching staff were
having dinner with their wives
in a villa overlooking the city.
And in the middle of the table
sat a big silver cup.
Liverpool’s triumph at the
Stadio Olimpico that night in
May almost 34 years ago was
the full stop on an 11-year
period spanning the Seventies
and Eighties when the club
strode across Europe with a
swagger that few teams have
equalled.
It was a record of sustained
dominance matched only by
Real Madrid’s six in 11 years
between
1956-66,
while
Liverpool managed to land a
couple of UEFA Cups in 1973
and ‘76 as well.
If Bill Shankly had kickstarted a passionate love affair
with European competition
with the UEFA Cup 11 years
earlier, few of those glory nights
– Istanbul was still to come –
matched the drama in Rome in
1984.
Roma’s players admitted
they felt destiny had delivered
the perfect final with the chance
to win their first European
trophy in their home stadium.

“A finale at the Stadio

Emerging into the floodlit

the early hostile atmosphere.
“The noise was deafening –

second half with both keepers
making saves but the match
ended 1-1 and, after extra time,
came the penalty shoot-out. It

with Steve Nicol missing the

kick out of the way early.

Ian Rush converted to make it
3-2. As Francesco Graziani
stepped up, Grobbelaar went
into overdrive.
“I’d never seen before a

Graziani, who nervously made
the sign of the cross before he
took his kick. “We all try to
distract our opponents and he
did that better than us.”
Grobbelaar said: “I went into

right and the ball clipped the

“The Roma fans were trying

saying, ‘You idiot’. I

The ball went high to
Tancredi’s right as he went left.
The Roma keeper described
the night as a “wound which
will never heal”.
“It

RED MIST: Klopp wants Liverpool fans to behave
‘Don’t throw
stuff at bus’
FROM BACK PAGE
all over the world so we
don’t need to throw
whatever at the bus.
“I really think we can
show how wonderful
Liverpool people are
and the city and the
spirit of the club
and we can show in
20 minutes before the
game, and then the
whole world knows it.”
Salah was crowned
PFA Player of the Year
at an awards ceremony
in London on Sunday
night but Klopp
insisted his work was
not done this season.
“It is great but he
knows the season is not
over. A lot of things to
come but I’m sure a
nice boost,” said Klopp.
Roma midfielder
Kevin Strootman
warned Salah that
sentiment and old
friendships will go out
of the window when
they will try to nobble
him “Italian-style”.
And the Holland
international said he
has been surprised by
Salah’s astonishing
goalscoring exploits
this season because he
missed a few sitters in
Italy.
He said: “We have
special tactics for Salah
but I’m not going to
share it. Italian defence,
that is what I’m hoping
for. Salah is definitely
the most dangerous
player right now and we
won’t be friends on the
pitch.
“I’ve tried to call him
lately but he doesn’t
pick up the phone. He
must have changed his
number six times.
I will write to him after
the semi-final.
“I’m not surprised at
how well he’s doing but
just at how easily he
scores the goals and
how confident he is in
front of goal with the
ball.
“Here, he did a great
job and did a lot of
great assists and goals,
but he missed a lot of
chances, especially
one on one with the
goalkeeper.
“I’m surprised by
how many goals he has
scored so far but not
how he plays. Here, he
was a nightmare
for opponents and
in England he is doing
the same.”
However, Roma boss
Eusebio Di Francesco
contradicted
Strootman by saying
they would not make
special plans for Salah.
He said: “Strootman
has become very smart
but I can assure you we
didn’t prepare the
match based on Salah.
“We can’t focus on
one player – Liverpool
play as a team
and that is the most
important thing.”
EVER since Roma were
pulled out alongside
Liverpool’s name the
temptation for many has
been to look to history
for inspiration.
Some hitched hope to the
1984 final as a portent while
others pointed to the more
recent 5-1 win over Manchester
City in the last round to fuel
belief.
Throughout, however, Jurgen
Klopp has been consistently
looking the other way.
For him the inspiration has
always been the future and
about what his current side can
achieve and yesterday he said
reaching a Champions League
final could be just the start.
“It is a massive opportunity
but it is not a once in the
lifetime chance,” he said. “I am
already for the second time in
the semi-finals and if I go, I will
be the second time in the final.
“I would say that if I was in
doubt about the attitude of the
boys but I’m not. We all feel the
same excitement. We all came
here together. If I now start to
do something really special,
then it would be, ‘OK, now he
thinks this team’s game could
be a bigger problem’. It’s not,
it’s the same. We really feel the
opportunity.”
It may be tempting to see
some psychology at work in
Klopp’s approach but there
should be no doubt about his
unswerving belief in his side’s
ability.
And while he stressed his
respect for a worthy lastfour
opponent,
having
dismantled no less than
Barcelona in the quarterfinals, winning 3-0 at home
to overturn a 4-1 defeat in
Spain, there is no doubt
that Liverpool believe they
can progress.
Klopp, who has been here
before, having reached the final
with Borussia Dortmund in
2013, said: “People ask me if I
feel pressure. No. I only feel
opportunity. I’m really happy
to be here – to have another big
night at Anfield.”
History will mean nothing
when the sides line up in what
is sure to be a febrile
atmosphere at Anfield yet
Klopp will resist the temptation
to use the past as motivation.
“I think the boys need real
things not the good old
stories, even though they were
brilliant,” said Klopp. “We only
talk about it because we hope
it helps. The spirit of Rome.
“In Germany we talk about
the spirit of the 1954 and ’74
camp prior to the World Cup
but it is only to create your
own history. That is what we
have to do, not what we want
to do.”
Liverpool last reached the
semi-final in 2008 when they
were beaten by Chelsea but
this campaign feels different.
They are the leading scorers in
the competition and have torn
through their opponents in the
knockout stages,
thrashing

Roma’s most valuable jewel –
paying £37 million for the
privilege – last summer and he

is that stopping him does not
necessarily stop the onslaught
with
15
goals
in
this
competition coming from the
other two prongs of Liverpool’s
attacking trident, Sadio Mane
and Roberto Firmino.
At the back Liverpool have
also
looked
a
different
proposition since Virgil van
Dijk arrived in January with
both Dejan Lovren and Loris
Karius looking far more
comfortable alongside him.
And in Anfield they have a
rarely-breached fortress with
only Sevilla able to score two
against them in an unbeaten
Champions League home
campaign that has produced
15 goals for and just those two
against. Their ability to land
flurries of punches has seen
teams suddenly lose their
equilibrium against Liverpool
this season and Klopp will
stress the importance of
momentum to his side.
“The team is enthusiastic.
In a good moment, they jump
and that’s good to see,” he
said. “But against Manchester
City we dealt with some
difficult circumstances in the
two halves here and there on
a high level.”
Roma will present a strong
physical challenge from front
to back with a five-man
midfield and powerful wingbacks, but it is one Liverpool
are ready for, according to
captain Jordan Henderson. “I
still see us as going into this
game as the underdog and it
will be a huge challenge,” he
said. “But we can still be
better and tomorrow we need
the perfect performance if we
are going to get the result.
“We all know the history of
the club and how brilliant it
is. But we want people to be
looking back at this team in
20 or 30 years’ time and saying
how good we were and how
special this year was or the
next few years will be.
“I feel as though we are in a
great place but also that this
is just the start of something
special.
“This is the first of some
huge games and hopefully we
can have many more over the
next few years.”

Hartley, 32, has
suffered from concussion
issues in the past,
missing 14 weeks of the
2015-16 season after two
separate incidents.

deputised for the injured
Hartley against France
in the Six Nations, is
favourite to take over for
the South Africa tour if
he is not rested after his

involved in the
Premiership play-offs
with Saracens, the job
could be handed back to

Klopp has called on Anfield
to provide an even hotter
atmosphere than they did for the
quarter-final first leg against
Manchester City.
But he maintained there
should be no repeat of the
shameful episode that saw City’s
team coach arrive smashed up
after it was targeted in the
streets around Anfield.
“In the stadium, do it again
and better,” he said. “But out of
the stadium, please show the
respect we have to show.
“This is such a fantastic football
club, outstanding football family,
known for fantastic atmospheres

But the Liverpool manager
warned the Italians that they do
so at their peril, with the Egyptian
ready to punish them if he gets a
sight of goal.
Salah has eight Champions
