THE Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
proudly presented their new baby boy
to the world yesterday, just hours after
he arrived.
William and Kate smiled and waved
as they unveiled their third child – the
fifth in line to the throne – although
mystery still surrounds the name of the
8lb 7oz newborn.
The duke told reporters he was ‘very
happy, very delighted’ as he and his
wife left the Lindo Wing of St Mary’s
Hospital in Paddington.
However, he added there was ‘thrice
the worry now’ for the family, referring to oldest son George, four, and
daughter Charlotte, two.
The duchess was admitted to hospital in the early stages of labour at 6am
and gave birth at 11.01am.
‘We didn’t keep you waiting too long
this time,’ William joked.
Kate spent about 11 hours in labour
before Prince George’s birth in 2013.
But Princess Charlotte arrived after
around three hours in 2015.
When quizzed on the baby’s name,
William told reporters: ‘You’ll find out
soon enough.’
Arthur is the firm favourite at the
bookies, although other predictions
include Philip, after the Duke of Edinburgh, James, Frederick and Albert.
The little prince is the heaviest newborn in direct line to the throne in
modern times – 1oz heavier than
George and 4oz more than Charlotte.
Earlier in the afternoon, Prince William
temporarily left his
wife’s side to fetch
George and Charlotte,
so the pair could meet
their little brother.
Princess Charlotte
threatened to steal the
show as she delighted
crowds of well-wishers outside the hospital by pausing several
times to give her
‘royal wave’.
In contrast, big
brother George, who came to the hospital straight from school in his uniform, appeared tired.
The duchess left hospital in heels
and a red Jenny Packham dress with a
white lace collar, while the baby
appeared to be wearing the same bonnet worn by Charlotte as a newborn.
The birth was announced with the
traditional notice outside Buckingham
Palace, though Kensington Palace also
issued a tweet that said: ‘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.’
It later added: ‘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.’
William will be ‘concentrating on
his family for the next couple of
weeks’, the palace said.
The baby was delivered by consultant obstetrician Guy Thorpe-Beeston,
the surgeon-gynaecologist to the Royal
Household, and consultant gynaecologist Alan Farthing – the former fiancé
of murdered TV star Jill Dando.
Both were also on hand for the birth
of George and Charlotte.

three and a half weeks to go before Prince

Kate is expected to attend but, with her
baby only a few weeks’ old, is unlikely to
stay for the entire celebration.
George, four, and Charlotte, two, are
tipped to be page boy and bridesmaid at
the ceremony in St George’s Chapel.
The duchess was on hand when the

FANS camped outside St Mary’s

royal baby were thrilled at yesterday’s birth announcement.
As the world’s media began to
gather with the news the Duchess
had been admitted in the early
stages of labour, John Loughrey, 63,
said: ‘We are so pleased. We have
been here for 15 days.’
He added: ‘I’m so pleased it’s St
George’s Day. St George himself
would be very pleased if the baby’s
born today.’
Mr Loughrey, from south London, said he planned to celebrate the
birth of the Duchess of Cambridge’s
third child with English flags and a
portion of fish and chips.
‘It didn’t matter if it was a boy or
a girl as long as it’s a healthy baby

had set up a makeshift camp with
royal memorabilia and Union flags.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn
said: ‘Congratulations to Kate and

Scottish first minister Nicola Sturgeon said on Twitter: ‘My congratulations to William, Catherine and

Canterbury Justin Welby said:
‘Congratulations to the Duke and
Duchess of Cambridge on the safe

Dad killed daughter,
7, over money fears
by EMILY PENNINK
A FATHER strangled his seven-yearold daughter with a dressing gown
cord to spare her the ‘pain and upset’
of him going bankrupt, a court heard.
Antiques dealer Robert Peters throttled daughter Sophia for up to half an
hour before calling 999 and telling
police: ‘There’s been a murder.’
He admitted carrying out the attack
and, when arrested, told officers the
girl woke up as he put the cord around
her neck and asked: ‘What are you
Tragic: Sophia Peters and dad Robert
doing?’ When police went to his home
in Wimbledon, south-west London,
they found Sophia lying on her bed
with the cord around her neck. Offic-
ers found a weak pulse and Sophia,
who had a hole in the heart as a baby,
was taken to hospital but died of fatal
brain injuries the day after the attack
on November 3 last year, the jury at
the Old Bailey heard.
Peters, 56, said he suffered a ‘breakdown’ after ending a two-year affair
and feared his shop in west London
was going bust – costing the family
their home. But an examination of his
finances revealed he was not in debt.
Peters admits manslaughter but
denies murder. The trial continues.

A FORMER MasterChef semifinalist has died after collapsing

his father, who died 18 months ago.
The 29-year-old, a semi-finalist in

His family paid tribute to an

a spokeswoman for the BBC’s Mas-

Mr Campbell, from the Lake District, began his career working in

Alfie made Italian citizen

TERMINALLY ill toddler Alfie Evans
has been granted Italian citizenship as
part of a last-ditch attempt to continue
his life support.
The Italian Ministry of Foreign
Affairs said it hoped the move would
allow his ‘immediate transfer’ to Italy.
It came after the European Court of
Human Rights rejected a final plea
over his treatment.
Alfie’s parents, Tom Evans and Kate
James, both in their 20s, want to take
by BRIAN FARMER
the 23-month-old from Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool to Rome’s
Bambino Gesu Paediatric Hospital,
which has links to the Vatican.
Mr Evans (pictured) posted on Facebook: ‘Alfie has been granted Italian
citizenship. We await for the foreign
minister to call Boris Johnson.’
Alfie, who has a degenerative neurological condition, has been in Alder
Hey since December 2016. Pavel
Stroilov, from the Christian
Legal Centre, which is representing the family, said: ‘We
don’t know what the response
will be and whether it’s going
to stop the withdrawal of treatment here.’
Angry supporters of the
family yesterday tried to
storm the hospital after
the European ruling.
Dozens of people dashed for the main
entrance before police blocked their
way. After a stand-off they rejoined
a group of about 200 protesters.
Ch Insp Chris Gibson, of Merseyside Police, said: ‘This is a
hospital for sick children and
it should not be forgotten
many families are going
through extremely challenging and emotional
times.’

AMBER RUDD was told ‘the buck
stops with her’ as she announced
emergency measures to protect the
Windrush generation from deportation.
The home secretary was accused of
ignoring repeated warnings about the
effect the ‘hostile environment’ for
illegal immigrants was having on people with the right to be in the UK as
she appeared before MPs yesterday.
She told the Commons she would
axe £1,330 fees for applying for citizenship, along with the English language and UK life test immigrants are
required to pass. The offer is open to
members of the Windrush generation
from all Commonwealth countries, not
just the Caribbean.
It applies regardless of whether or
not someone has paperwork showing
their right to be in the country.
Controversy erupted
last week after it
emerged scores of people who settled in the
UK from the late 1940s
to early 1970s had
wrongly been identified
as illegal immigrants.
Unveiling the new
measures Ms Rudd,
who along with her predecessor
Theresa May has faced intense pressure over the crisis, acknowledged that
the ‘state has let these people down’.
She said: ‘We were too slow to realise there was a group of people that
needed to be treated differently.
‘And the system was too bureaucratic when these people were in
touch.

‘She is behaving as if it is a shock to
her. Officials are implementing regulations in the way she intended them to
be implemented.
‘The home secretary has to under-
stand that the buck stops with her. It
was foreseeable, and it was foreseen.’
Ms Rudd said the Home Office was
checking 8,000 records but had not
found anyone wrongly deported. She
said migrants retired overseas could
return with no fee, and compensation
would be paid. Ms Rudd added that
the steps will ‘make sure they have the
formal status they should have had a

minister tweeted to his 352,000
followers: ‘I was born in the
Whittington Hospital, the son of
Windrush migrants, and I will
speak for them.
‘And let me be clear, following
the 1948 Nationality Act my
parents and the Windrush
generation were invited here as
British citizens.
‘Learn your history. Citizens
have been retrospectively renamed
as “immigrants” as a result of
legislation and policy pandering
to far-right rhetoric.’ The letter
was dated April 16, the day Mr
Lammy told the Commons that
the government was presiding
over a ‘day of national shame’ for
its handling of the Windrush
affair.
Slamming the ‘hostile
environment’ for illegal
immigrants, he told MPs: ‘If you
lay down with dogs, you get fleas,
and that is what has happened
with the far-right rhetoric in this
country.’

National day will honour

by ANDREW WOODCOCK
AN ANNUAL commemoration will
be held on April 22 every year to mark
the death of Stephen Lawrence, the
prime minister announced yesterday.
Stephen Lawrence Day was declared
by Theresa May at a memorial service
marking the 25th anniversary of the
black teenager’s murder, which is
seen as a watershed moment in UK
race relations.
‘We will use this day to encourage
and support young people in achieving
their dreams, and to reflect on Stephen’s
life, death and the positive change he
has inspired,’ Mrs May said.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle,
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, London

Neville at St Martin-in-the-Fields church

Harry read a speech from Prince
Charles, who could not attend, but
recalled ‘the profound shock at his
senseless murder’ and how deeply
moved he was by ‘the determination of
Stephen’s family to build something
positive from the tragedy’.
The prince continued: ‘A quarter of a

man who Stephen would have become,
and just how his extraordinary potential might have been fulfilled.’

The 18-year-old student was
stabbed by a gang of up to six racists in Eltham, south-east London,
on April 22, 1993. David Norris
and Gary Dobson are serving life
sentences for the murder.
Last week, Mr Lawrence, 76,

decision to forgive the killers.

When invited to her home
in Brighton on October 26
last year, he stabbed her in
the chest, neck and
abdomen. He told police he
attacked her as she tried to

suicidal thoughts.
Browning, who had at times
‘expressed unhappiness’ at
Ms Howell’s management
style, sat in her home for two
hours after the killing and
posted a picture on Facebook
which read: ‘Stand up to
bullies... then kill them.’
He admits manslaughter by
diminished responsibility but
denies murder. However,
prosecutor Alan Gardner said
Browning plotted the attack
a month in advance, and
bought a knife and shotgun
to carry out the ‘cold blooded’
attack. The trial continues.

Nine dead as rental van

NINE people died yesterday when a
van was driven at high speed into several groups of pedestrians in Canada.
Video footage from the scene
appeared to show the driver waving a
gun in the air before dropping it as he

He was seen shouting at police: ‘I

Witness Cam Clark told 680 News:
‘Everybody was out enjoying the sunshine and all of a sudden there was this
Ryder van coming south on the sidewalk ploughing people down.
‘There was a girl near me just ten
feet away and he just ran right over

FRENCH president Emmanuel Macron
arrived in Washington last night for his
first state visit to the US.
He and wife Brigitte were greeted by
military officials at an airbase before
meeting president Donald Trump.
During a three-day visit, in which he will
speak at both houses of Congress, selfconfessed ‘Trump whisperer’ Mr Macron
is expected to urge his counterpart not to
pull troops out of Syria. He will warn
withdrawing forces could create a new
wave of terror. And he hopes to avert a
trade war by convincing Mr Trump to
exempt the EU’s 28 member states from
paying tarriffs on US steel and aluminium.
After his arrival, Mr Macron took a
stroll along Pennsylvania Avenue before
meeting with Mr Trump and wife Melania
for dinner.
Later today, he is due to attend a
reception with 150 guests in the former
Mount Vernon home of first US president,

Terror suspect jailed for firing at police
Fugitive: Abdeslam
A TERROR suspect thought to

attacks has been sentenced to 20
years for shooting at police as he

Salah Abdeslam, 28, once
Europe’s most wanted fugitive,

24, were convicted of attempted
murder by a Belgian court. Police
came under fire while raiding a

Three officers were wounded
and a gunmen was killed while
Abdeslam and Ayari escaped.
Abdeslam was captured three
days later. Four days after that,
extremists killed 32 people with
bombs at Brussels airport and on
the subway system.
Abdeslam is being held in France

over the Paris attacks that killed
130 people. They were on the Stade

May insists: We will
quit customs union
THERESA MAY has insisted that the UK
must leave the customs union after Brexit
so it can strike trade deals around the
world.
The prime minister said she would not
change course despite facing a series of
parliamentary battles over future customs
arrangements with the EU.
Mrs May will face the concerns of proEuropean MPs on Thursday, following a
massive defeat in the House of Lords.
But she said arrangements which are as
‘frictionless as possible’ with the EU and
by DAVID HUGHES
the ability to sign trade arrangements with
other countries were both achievable
under the government’s proposals.
‘Coming out of the customs union
means that we will be free to have those
deals, deals that suit the UK,’ she told the
BBC on a local election campaign visit to
a firm in the West Midlands.
It comes as Mrs May is set to face calls
tomorrow from leading Brexiteers Boris
Johnson, David Davis and Liam Fox to
abandon her preferred form of a ‘customs
partnership’ involving some regulatory
co-operation. The trio will tell her at a
meeting of the Cabinet Brexit committee
that such an arrangement would be
unworkable, according to The Times.
Though the looming Commons vote on
a pro-customs union motion would be a
non-binding one, it has the potential to
deepen Tory wounds on Brexit.
The PM’s spokesman played down its
significance, saying Thursday’s event was
a ‘routine backbench business debate’.

Tattooist fails to stop cactus shop using same name as his salon
by JOEL TAYLOR
Charity chief jailed
for £53,000 fraud
A CHARITY’S finance officer
who stole more than £53,000
to buy fake tan, diamantes and
lacy underwear has been jailed
for a year.
Gemma Mason, 36, used her
credit card for community
regeneration group NSA Afan
for more than 1,000 Amazon,
purchases, including designer
shoes and luxury handbags.
The mum-of-two, of Neath,
West Glamorgan, admitted
fraud at Swansea crown court.
Judge Geraint Walters told
her: ‘This was a serious breach
of trust.’
Shop: Gynelle Leon sells cacti INSTAGRAM
CELEBRITY tattoo artist Henry Hate
has been told to get used to the idea
that he’s not the only Prick in town.
Mr Hate, who created Amy Winehouse’s famous pin-up girl inking, was
furious when a cactus shop with the
same name as his salon opened nearby
in trendy Shoreditch, east London.
He accused Gynelle Leon, whose
company is called Prick Me Baby
One More Time, of taking unfair
advantage of his ‘edgy, rocck ‘n’ roll’
trading name.
But Judge Melissa Clarkke said
it was difficult to imagine ‘tw
businesses with two less cloosely
related activities than a taatto
salon and a cactus shop’.
Mr Hate, real name Henrry
Martinez, has also decorated fashion designer
Alexander McQueen, pop
star Boy George, musician

us shop opened in nearby
Kinggsland Road two years

by the name clash.
He had taken calls
from confused cactus
lovers, including an official from the Royal Horticultural Society, the high
court was told. Mr Hate
claimed Ms Leon was ‘passing off’ her
shop as being connected to his salon.
But the Judge said, although the cactus shop was also painted black, the
‘get-up’ of the two premises was otherwise very different. Ms Leon’s use
of the word Prick did not amount to a
‘material misrepresentation’ that her
cactus shop was authorised by or connected to Mr Hate, she added.
Ms Leon could have faced a compensation bill had she lost the case.

Facebook’s making
the scammers rich
Tech giant has to stop fake ads going online
n Good luck to Martin Lewis as he sues
Facebook in the High Court over more
than 50 fake ads that fraudulently use his
image (Metro, Mon). Facebook, by
continuing to take the money from such
scammers, is making the criminals rich at
the expense of hard-working business
owners. Well done, Metro – this a story
society needs to hear!
Nat, Leeds
n Facebook is entirely to blame for this
travesty. The giant needs to check every
single ad before it goes up on its
platform. It is its responsibility as a
responsible company.
Daniel, North Yorkshire
n Facebook screens every ad in advance
of allowing them to run. I’ve had ads
rejected for having too much text over
the image, for example. The issue is the
quality of their staff and their processes.
Ads featuring Martin Lewis should have

Facebook really is. If you’re still giving
them your data, you’re insane.
Eleanor, Queens Park
n While I am reluctant to side
completely with Facebook, I think
Martin Lewis’s woes are not the tech
giant’s fault. As Facebook is a free-toaccess platform, ads are their only source
of revenue and it would be incredibly
inefficient to check the legitimacy of
each one. I think an easier solution would
be to warn the naive and gullible about
these blatant scams.

n Facebook must prevent scam adverts,

Stott, Derbyshire
n I am so sick of constantly removing
adverts from my Facebook and Instagram
feeds. It’s as if Facebook is no longer
about social networking and connecting
with people but more a tool for
advertising and selling services. It’s
a shame. Facebook seems to take
information from anything you scroll
over, click on or like. It dumps a random
topic into your ad preferences, then
spams away. I’ve cleared my ‘interests’
out multiple times and find all kinds of
rubbish in there. It just keeps going back
in. We the users should be given the
option to opt out of all adverts and spam.
Fiona Shea
n As much as Martin Lewis’s ire is
understandable, equally I’m not sure
Facebook can be held culpable. Due to
the nature of this sprawling beast, I don’t
think it is humanly possible to police
every one of the thousands of ads that
must appear daily. That said, perhaps the
structure of its business pages need
changing so that individual groups
have their own moderator – just like the
social networking groups – who censor
the ads before they appear.

You’ve a new book out. How
do you find the time to write?
I wouldn’t have had the time if I was
still working on This Morning, that’s
for sure! When I left, I thought, ‘I’m
going to have a few years where
I just relax and dig my garden.’ And
then I had a phone call from the
publishers saying, ‘Could you write
a novel?’
all chefs are easy to cook for. They are
so used to people being too scared to
cook for them, they truly are happy
with an omelette or beans on toast.
And who’s the bigger romantic?
Phil is very romantic. I think we match
each other, probably. He will never
forget important dates. He’ll always
produce a nice bunch of flowers and
probably cook a bit of supper. He’s a
good guy.
You’ve had a varied career. Is
there anything you’d change?
I don’t regret anything. You’re gung-ho
when you’re young and think, ‘Yeah,
OK, I’ll abseil down the building for a
laugh!’ I really loved going to Basra to
see how our British troops were getting
on in the camp there – I met SAS
people and flew in the aircraft.
I don’t feel I’ve missed out on
much at all. I’ve had a really
good run at life.
What’s your favourite way to
stay in shape?
I love cycling. It’s very good for the
head. When it’s cold, I’m in a
spin class. I do my best. Some
of the guys in there are like
Iron Man triathletes but
they’ll sit on the bike next

TSB chaos as glitch
hits bank accounts
TSB has apologised after a system
upgrade at the weekend affected
mobile and online accounts of potentially millions of customers.
One bank customer said he had
‘access’ to someone else’s savings of
more than £20,000 while another
was credited with £13,000 after logging back in.
A number of other customers complained they were still unable to access
their money yesterday.
The bank had told its account holders that some of its services, includ-
by RYAN WILKINSON
ing online banking, making payments or transferring money, would
not be possible during the upgrade
window scheduled between 4pm on
Friday and 6pm on Sunday.
However, a message on its website
yesterday said there were still ‘intermittent issues’. The bank said it was
‘working as hard and as fast as we
can to get these up and running’.
TSB’s social media team faced a
stream of complaints from custom-
ers, including several who said they
could see other people’s accounts
after logging back in.
Craig Malcom tweeted: ‘@TSB I
currently have access to £20k+ of
other people’s money. This is a MASSIVE breach of data protection!’
Laim McKenzie, from Paisley, told
the BBC he had been unexpectedly
credited with thousands of pounds
after logging back in after 6pm on
Sunday. ‘My balance, because of my
overdraft, is in minus, but [it] was
showing at £13,000,’ he said.

Harry and Megan’s

some of the UK’s
most unlikely areas,
says Oliver Stallwood
U
NTIL now there may have seemed
little point in visiting Slough, unless
seeing ‘Europe’s biggest trading
estate’ happened to be on your bucket
list. Likewise, Staines, renamed
Staines-upon-Thames in a bid to shrug off the Ali G
associations, has never really been a tourist hotspot.
But things are looking up for suburbia west of
London, and it’s all fuelled by the upcoming
wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Airbnb has announced that many of the 42,000
guest arrivals into London will be staying in some
of the surrounding area’s lesser-known parts. Who
needs Hoxton when you can have Chalvey, just ten
minutes from Royal Windsor.
As the UK gears up for the royal wedding, Airbnb
reports that Slough has seen an increase of 1,438
per cent in guest bookings compared to the same
period last year. Other surrounding areas

have also seen a rise in guests, with
Maidenhead up 362 per cent, Windsor
194 per cent and Reading 57 per cent.
Among the Airbnb properties
ideally placed to make the most of the
forthcoming royal nuptials is this
stylish apartment near Richmond
Park. Itself the perfect marriage
between tradition and modern chic, it
features original and period cornicing,
glitzy chandeliers and contemporary
furniture with Victorian silhouettes.
A grey and neutrals colour scheme
washes over the look to tie everything
together with a forward-thinking
aesthetic. In the kitchen, the bold
walls contrast with and outline the
collection of art, while Shaker-style
units add a relaxed, rural feel.
Carefully chosen antiques and
collectables in the three bedrooms add
a personal touch, with the only truly
modern rooms being the high-spec
bathrooms.
The apartment is located in
Richmond Hill, within walking
distance of Richmond’s Royal Park,
town centre, the Thames, local
boutique shops and a host of
traditional English pubs and
restaurants. Richmond Park is 15
miles from Windsor.

King size: A simple but stylish bedroom featuring antiques for a personal touch
‘We know someone gets
t tto enjoy
j
the space when we’re not there’
LESS than five miles from Slough
town centre, and just six miles
from Windsor, is a converted
barn in Taplow where, according
to owners Layla Cyster and
husband Ed, you can share Natalie
Portman’s bed. Well, not exactly,
but we hear she was a former
guest here.
Equipped with a gym, pool
and hot tub, this extraordinary
property was an 800-year-old
barn which they bought in January
2013. It was completely renovated
the following year and is now a
luxury, period property with all
modern fixtures and fittings.
‘It has all the mod cons you’d
want in your home,’ explains Layla.
‘We opened up what used to be
the main entrance to the Tithe
Barn to expose the beams
in the roof. At almost
800 years old, they
are extraordinarily
impressive.
‘What makes
it so special is
that the barn
itself is uniquely
beautiful and we
have designed and
y
furnished it in a way
to complement its
original features.’
Wood beams straddle
d are
the living spaces, and
visible in almost every wall. The
open-plan nature of the kitchen
and living room make this a
sociable home, albeit with nooks
and crannies to escape to. Layla
says she has no problem renting
out her pride and joy to strangers,
taking solace from the fact
someone can enjoy it when she is
away.
She says: ‘Opening my home for
others to enjoy when I’m not there
softens the fact that I can’t enjoy
it, and at least we know someone
gets to enjoy the house and space.
The hous

AIRBNB’S TOP TIPS FOR RENTING OUT YOUR HOME
n The process for advertising on
Airbnb is straightforward. Just
describe your space, how many
guests you can accommodate and
add photos and information on
h
any extra touches which
make your home specia
al.
n Connect with your
guests by messaging
them through the
platform. Let them
know the best way to
get to your home and
check what time they
plan to get there. A cup of tea is a
great welcome after a long trip.
n You’ll need to ensure that your
property is clean and comfortable
b provid
iding things like fresh
heetts and towels, while
upplying toiletries is a
omely gesture which
o
uests will remember.
u
n What sets Airbnb
part is the hosts’
p
nowledge of the local
n
rea
a. Find out what your
guests are interested in and offer
suggestions for attractions. Your
favourite spots are unlikely to be
in standard tourist guides.
n Hosts are encouraged to
consider what they may like as a
guest when travelling, whether a
handy guidebook to the local area,
or a list of local delicacies.
n Consider whether your home is
equipped for pets or children and,
if so, ensure you mark your listing
as such. If you can host families
it’s an idea to provide games or
books for rainy days.
n If you have facilities such as a
n
pool or tennis court, mark them on
your listing so that people
searching the site using those
filters won’t miss your home.
n Guests want to feel safe in your
home, so ensure locks and
security systems are all in place
and working. It’s also helpful to
supply a security box for valuabless
such as passports or jewellery.

‘It’s our personal
escape pod’
YOU’LL find all the luxury of a wellappointed house in Medmenham, a
village in the Wycombe district of
Buckingham – except here, Esther
Abrey’s eco-widebeam barge is moored
on the waterways.
Esther’s husband Tobie bought the
Baron II in 2006 and lived on it before
the couple married. After tying the knot,
they moved to dry land but decided to
use it as their own weekend retreat.
‘We kept hold of it and use it as our
own personal escape pod,’ Esther
laughs. It wasn’t all plain sailing though
– the boat sank in the floods of 2014
and had to be completely gutted and
rebuilt. The only original features are the
windows, doors and boat shell itself.
‘It was very stressful at the time,’ says
Esther, who is a project manager and
yoga teacher. ‘We cleared out all of the
damaged items two days before our
first little one arrived – thankfully she
was late. But we now have a wonderful
space that we have built to our tastes
and needs.
‘We used the opportunity of a blank
canvas to install underfloor heating, a
power shower, the latest compostable
toilet, modern electrics and oak wooden
floors throughout, as well as decorating
and adding more personal touches.’
The result is a boat that is better than
ever. The beautiful barge is situated on
the Thames, four miles from Henley and
14 miles from Windsor.
It features one double bedroom, a

including the open-plan lounge

gentleman’s club, with tan leather sofas
and wood panelling. Heating is provided
through a wood-burning squirrel stove
in the living area and the eco-friendly
toilets balance convenience with
conscience.
The barge has been used as wedding
night accommodation and they’ve even
had a guy pop the question on board
(she said yes.)
Esther tells us the boat
is booked for the royal
wedding weekend, adding:
‘It will be interesting to
know if they have any plans
to head into Windsor – we
will be keeping our fingers
crossed for good weather
for the Royal couple and
our guests alike.’

NEW The Split BBC1, 9pm
Divorce is a messy business – and
it gets even messier when you
throw in a family law firm intent on
getting one over on each other.
Writer Abi Morgan’s latest (led by
Nicola Walker) is a much soapier
affair than The Hour and River with
the divorce bits, featuring Mathew
Baynton, Stephen Tompkinson and
Meera Syal, sharing plot space with
the bickerings and bitchings of a
family torn down the middle.

Blow for England as
Hartley misses tour
RUGBY UNION
DYLAN HARTLEY will
miss the rest of the
season and England’s
summer tour to South
Africa due to concussion.
The England captain
has not played since the
final Six Nations game
with Ireland and it has
been decided he should
take an extended break.
‘I’m very disappointed
that I will not be
available for Saints’
remaining Premiership
games, as well England’s
tour to South Africa,’
said the Northampton
hooker (pictured).
Two years ago, Hartley
was ruled out for 14
weeks because of two
separate concussions.
‘It has been recom-
mended by specialists
that I take a break this
summer and while I find
that decision hard to
accept, it’s important I
listen to that advice,’ the
32-year-old added.
‘I intend to use this
time to recover fully, so I
can be ready to hit the
ground running when
pre-season training
starts later this summer.’

by JUSTIN PALMER
PER MERTESACKER believes
Arsene Wenger has the ‘power’ to
continue in management after leaving Arsenal this summer, and admitted the players feel responsible
for his decision to resign.
Wenger will leave the Emirates at
the end of the season after announcing last week he will be bringing his
22-year reign to a close.
It remains to be seen if the 68year-old will retire or look for work
elsewhere, although he insisted last
year when it was unclear if he would
remain at the club, he would definitely stay in the game.
Wenger said after Sunday’s 4-1
win over Premier League strugglers
West Ham he was ‘not tired’. And

Early memories of
supporting Liverpool?
From being very young I just
loved the kit, the crowd, the
atmosphere. I had Liverpool

them whenever I could.

he will make it succeed. Thierry

Kyle Edmund
Ahead of their Champions
League semi-final tonight,
the British No.1 talks about
his love for Liverpool
Are you a nervous watcher?
When I’m at home I get
nervous watching them
because I’m on my own. When
I’m at games I’m really into it,
getting up, shouting with the
rest of the crowd – the
opposite to what I’m like on
the tennis court, where I’m
pretty low-key and keep
myself to myself. When you’re
on the court you’re in control
so I find it easier to control
the nerves than when I’m
watching my team.
Your memories of the last
time they won it in 2005?
It was a school night. I was
ten. I’ll never forget it. My
mum told me I needed to go
to bed but I said, ‘No, I’m
watching this’. If it happened
now I would value it more
because I realise how huge
the Champions League is.
How often are you able to
get to Anfield?
I’ve been quite a bit this
season. I was at the home leg
against Man City. It was
amazing. It was the best
football match I’ve ever been
to in terms of the
time we cannot produce a performance. We have not been that successful over the past couple of years.
There are a lot of people responsible, not only the manager.
‘It has not sunk in enough to say
we are guilty, but we are as well responsible for the situation.’
atmosphere. It felt like the
crowd were playing against
City themselves. Taking a lead
to Rome is going to be the key
– something to play for, fight
for and hold on to in Rome.
Your favourite player?
My favourite player of all time
would be Steven Gerrard for
what he’s done for the club
and Mo Salah has had an
amazing season, but I really
like Roberto Firmino. His
work-rate is good, he’s a
really intelligent player and I
like his goal celebrations!
You reached your first final
recently. What would it
mean to do something like
that at Queen’s?
I’d love to do it. Making that
final in Marrakesh has set me
up for the busy time ahead –
first the clay where I think I
can play well, and then the
grass at the Fever-Tree
Championships at Queen’s,
and then Wimbledon, which is
obviously a big deal for me.

by JUSTIN PALMER
THEO WALCOTT gave Everton
and manager Sam Allardyce a
much-needed lift with a second-half
winner against in-form Newcastle at
Goodison Park last night.
The Toffees had to apologise to a
furious Allardyce last week for asking fans to rate him as a manager,
But after a three-match Premier
League winless run, the under-pressure Everton at least saw his side
move above Leicester into eighth.
They deserved their victory, although whether Big Sam can win
over fans unhappy at his perceived
negative style remains to be seen.
Defeat brought to an end the visitors’ run of four successive league
wins and spoiled Rafael Benitez’s
100th game in charge of Toon.
But the Spaniard could have few
complaints as his side failed to test
Toffees keeper Jordan Pickford.
The hosts had the best first-half
chance but Phil Jagielka volleyed
over from close range after Michael
Keane headed back across goal.
But they broke the deadlock when
Walcott showed composure to fire
into the roof of the net.
Newcastle should have levelled
when substitute Dwight Gayle
hooked over from close range.
Matt Ritchie fired a free-kick over
from the edge of the box while a
last-ditch clearing header from Seamus Coleman ensured a home win.
Allardyce said: ‘Apart from the
last ten minutes we dominated the
game. There was only going to be
one winner.’

The proposal would feature 15 regular six-ball

suggested could be bowled by three players.
Rayner gave a withering take on Twitter. ‘Ok,
great hoax.....@ECB-cricket you got us,’ he

bowler, this has gone too far now.’

‘No need for Mo to follow
Coutinho out of Anfield –
he can make history here’
by JUSTIN PALMER
JORDAN HENDERSON believes
Liverpool can keep hotshot Mohamed
Salah out of the clutches of European
rivals by creating their own history
with him.
The Reds head into their first Champions League semi-final for a decade
on the back of the Egypt forward being crowned Professional Footballers’
Association Player of the Year.
Salah’s success has contributed in a
large part to the January departure of
Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona for
£142million barely being mentioned,
let alone felt, by the team.
However, manager Jurgen Klopp
did admit the Brazilian’s exit
was painful, saying: ‘We lost
Phil Coutinho – that is not a
hobby, it doesn’t even feel
like fun.’
But until the Reds, fivetime winners of the European Cup, become a consistent force in Europe
once again they always leave themselves
open to the possibility
of more successful
clubs picking off their
best players.
Henderson (right)

tonight’s
Champions League

will be a stepping
stone to that situation changing.

ROMA’S former Manchester
City defender Aleksandar
Kolarov insists the Italians cannot
focus all their efforts on stopping
Mohamed Salah tonight. Kolarov
said Roma did not fall into that
trap in the last round against
Barcelona. ‘Against Barca we
played as a team, we did not focus
on Lionel Messi,’ he said. ‘It is not
about stopping one player.
Liverpool are not only Salah, they
have a number of good players.’
ly there will be other clubs who want
to take him away,’ said Reds skipper
Henderson, who revealed he voted
for Manchester City’s influential
Belgium international Kevin De Bruyne – 41-goal Salah’s main rival –
for the PFA award.
‘But I feel like he’s in a great place
with a great set of lads and a great
manager going in the right direction. We want to create our
own history here and I’m
sure that Mo wants to be
part of that. He’s a big
part of that now and
I am sure he will
be for many years
to come.
‘He’s been fantastic throughout
the season.
‘His record and his
stats speak for themselves. He’s been a massive player for us this
season and hopefully he
can continue that form
over the next few weeks.’

Klopp pleads for Liverpool fans
not to attack Roma team bus
LIVERPOOL boss Jurgen Klopp
has urged fans to respect Roma
and avoid a repeat of the ugly
scenes which marred their
Champions League win over
Manchester City.
Thousands of fans are expected
to line the approach to Anfield for
the arrival of the team coaches
tonight but on the last occasion
that happened City’s bus had
windows smashed after bottles
and cans were thrown (pictured).
That led to a Uefa charge and
police have warned they will crack
down on any disturbances ahead
of this evening’s semi-final. Klopp
said: ‘In the stadium, do it again,
outside the stadium please show
the respect we have to show.
‘This is such a fantastic club, an
outstanding football family,
known for a fantastic atmosphere
all over the world, so we don’t
need to throw whatever at the bus
of the opponent team. We are
opponents on the pitch.
‘Everyone knows what a
wonderful city Rome is, not

Liverpool is and, if we can show
how wonderful Liverpool people
are and the city and the spirit of
the club, we can show it in 20
minutes before the game and then

IN BRIEF
FA issues apology for cup
tweet that mocked Kane
THE Football Association
has apologised to
Tottenham and
Manchester United for a
tweet on the official FA
Cup account following
their semi-final.
United won Saturday’s
game 2-1 and a postmatch tweet poked fun at the
performance of Spurs and England striker
Harry Kane (pictured), who was kept quiet
by United’s Chris Smalling.
In a mock-interview style, the tweet
read: ‘Me: What’s that in your pocket,
Chris?’ before posting a video of the
United defender saying: ‘Harry Kane.’
The tweet has since been deleted. ‘We
have written to both clubs to apologise
for any offence caused,’ the FA said.
I’ll be really surprised if
Spurs slip up, says Cahill
GARY CAHILL believes it will be a shock
if Chelsea add a top-four finish to their
FA Cup final appearance.
Manchester United lie in wait on May 19
after the Blues overcame Southampton
2-0 in Sunday’s semi-final, with Olivier
Giroud and Alvaro Morata on target.
And with Chelsea five points off
fourth-placed Tottenham with four
league matches left, Cahill is realistic.
‘I’m not being negative but games are

‘‘SALAH WILL WANT TO STAY WITH US’: PAGES 34-35 »
JURGEN KLOPP has warned Mohamed Salah to expect a rough ride
from his former Roma team-mates
but insisted Liverpool’s star man
would ‘strike back’ in tonight’s Champions League showdown.
The 41-goal forward, and newly
crowned Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year, faces his
old club for the first time since his
£38million move last summer as Anfield hosts the opening leg of their
semi-final – the Reds’ first in the European Cup for a decade.
Italian defenders have a reputation
for their uncompromising approach
and Klopp alluded to that when discussing Salah. He also thanked the Serie A club for helping make the Egypt
international the star he has grown
into since arriving in England.
‘Players change clubs, managers
change clubs – I had it with Dortmund
two years ago already,’ Klopp said.
‘It is a normal game but it feels quite
by DAVID GURNEY
special because you know much more
about the team than you usually know.
I am pretty sure Mo follows the whole
season of Roma as he had a fantastic
time there and became the player
which we have now here.
‘Italian defenders are famous for
not having friendly games so Mo will
feel pretty early in the game they are
not his team-mates any more and then
he can strike back in a football way.’
Klopp said it was already a special
campaign for record-breaking Salah
after his PFA award but wanted him
to achieve something with the team.
‘It’s great but the season is not finished and there are a lot of things to
come but I am sure it is a nice boost
for him,’ the German added.
‘The players know how difficult it is
to score that many goals and be involved in that many goals so I think it
is well deserved.’
