LEN McCluskey has called
on Labour moderate MPs to
be deselected for raising
concerns over how Labour
leader Jeremy Corbyn has
allowed anti-Semitism to
flourish in his party.
The Unite boss launched
the attack on the group
of Labour MPs, including
two Jewish MPs who have
suffered appalling levels of
anti-Semitic
abuse
from
Left-wing supporters of Mr
Corbyn.
He claimed they were just
trying to smear the party
Unite leader Len McCluskey
leader. In a rant in a prominent Left-wing magazine, the
union baron, who has bankrolled Mr Corbyn’s leadership,
voiced “disgust”.
It came on a day when
Jewish MPs Luciana Berger
and Ruth Smeeth were
accompanied by colleagues
to a disciplinary hearing on
whether the activist Marc
Wadsworth should be expelled
for alleged anti-Semitism
directed at Ms Smeeth.
The MPs had to walk
through a gauntlet of hard
Left supporters of Mr Corbyn
and Momentum activists who
were outside supporting Mr
Wadsworth.
A decision on his future is
yet to be announced.
In the article, Mr McCluskey, said: “I look with disgust
at the behaviour of the
Corbyn-hater MPs.
“I understand why there
is a growing demand for
mandatory reselection.”
He accused rebel MPs of
“working overtime trying to
present the Labour Party
as a morass of misogyny,
anti-Semitism and bullying”.
Mr McCluskey called some
MPs “a dismal chorus whose
every dirge makes winning
a Labour government more
difficult”. And in what some
saw as a reference to Ms
Smeeth and Ms Berger – who
were applauded for their
brave speeches in the Commons chamber in a recent
debate – he added: “To see
Tory MPs cheer and applaud
them was shameful.”
A spokesman later denied
he was talking specifically
about the two Jewish MPs.
The row comes after Mr
Corbyn failed to reach agreement with Jewish leaders from
the Board of Deputies and
Jewish Leadership Council.
Euan Philipps, spokesman
for Labour Against AntiSemitism, said: “Len McCluskey’s comments are thoughtless and heartless and in
complete opposition to the
traditional Labour values of
solidarity and compassion.”

THERESA May
yesterday pledged
further action to tackle
child obesity as five
party leaders called for
drastic curbs.
The PM had been
criticised for diluting
proposals by her
predecessor David
Cameron. But Whitehall
sources said many of
the 13 new steps are in
the pipeline for a
strategy this summer.
Mrs May was pressed
in the Commons to
back Jamie Oliver’s
AdEnough campaign to
ban TV junk food
adverts before 9pm.
The celebrity chef
also wants limits on
street, public transport
and online ads.
Mrs May told MPs:
“We already have plans
to tackle childhood
obesity that are
world-leading. No other
developed country has
done anything as
ambitious. Our soft
drinks industry levy
– that’s bold action
we’re taking.”
She added: “Those
steps will make a real
difference and a real
help in reversing the
problem that has been
decades in the
making.”
A letter signed by the
opposition leaders
warned: “If we don’t act
now, the current
generation of young
children could well live
shorter lives than their
parents.”
They said the UK was
western Europe’s most
obese country with
“disastrous” health
consequences.
Cost of NHS to rise £50bn in 12 years
THE annual cost of the NHS will rise
by £50billion by 2030 as pressures on
the system grow, according to analysis.
Health service funding will need to
increase from £123billion in 2017 to
£173billion by 2030, while maintaining
the current adult social care system
will require at least an extra £10billion
every year, the Institute for Public
Policy Research found.
However, the NHS will have to boost
its productivity by one-and-a-half
times even if both funding
requirements are met, it said.
The findings, presented in an interim
report for the Lord Darzi Review of
Health and Care, follow a commitment
by Theresa May last month to
9p>`c\jJ_\c[i`Zb
implement a long-term financial plan
for the NHS. Lord Darzi, chair of
surgery at Imperial College London
and a former health minister, will
present his final report in July.
He said: “NHS staff should be
congratulated for the improvements
they have made to the quality of care
they provide. But it is getting harder
and harder to access that care and the
system is in financial distress.
“While the prospect of a long-term
funding settlement is welcome, it is
vital that it delivers enough money to
meet the demands of the decade
ahead. Funding the NHS while social
care falls over is not an option.” The
report also said the “baby boomer
bump” would push the NHS bill up,
with more people requiring health
and care services.
Institute director Tom Kibasi said:
“Our research shows ‘taxpayer-funded
– free at the point of need’ is the most
efficient way to finance and organise
the health service.
“Social and private insurance models
in other countries are more costly.
“That’s why those who say the NHS
is unsustainable are wrong.
“It is a fundamental error of logic to
say that something is unaffordable, so
we should move to something more
expensive.”

A LOTTERY winner has installed a
£5,000 replica of Windsor Castle in
her garden so her dog can also
enjoy the royal wedding.
The 6ft-high, hand-painted luxury
kennel features a red carpet, throne
and hot tub for Susan Crossland’s
pooch Archie.
The 10-year-old Lhasa Apso will
wear a tuxedo and Union Jack top
hat for Prince Harry’s marriage to
Meghan Markle on May 19.
Mrs Crossland, 53, said: “I love
royal weddings and I love the royals.
I just thought it might be a bit quirky
to have something nice for Archie
so I had him a Windsor Castle made
and he absolutely loves it.”
She is planning to host a
barbecue on the day and says
Archie will “just be pottering about
in his Windsor Castle”.
“Archie is obviously a big part of
the family so we couldn’t have him
missing out. We love to spoil him.”
9pD`Z_X\cBefnc\j
Mrs Crossland and her husband
Michael, 49, from Mirfield, West
Yorks, won £1.2million in 2008.
They have used their winnings to
care for her two sisters and brother
– who have learning difficulties – in
a purpose-built home.
Mrs Crossland hired London set
designers The Russell Beck Studio
to create the model – based on the
castle’s King George IV Gate –
which took 244 hours to make.
She said she was hoping to find a
good home for the castle after the
wedding, somewhere where dogs or
children could enjoy it. She said:
“Although I had it done for Archie –
and he does love it – I would like
after the wedding to take it off him, if
he’ll let me, to donate it to a place
where other people can enjoy it.
“It would’ve been an ideal present
for the new [royal] baby.”

William’s banter on name of the new
baby triggers a rush to bookmakers
PRINCE William prompted a rush to
the bookies yesterday after appearing to drop a hint about the name of
his new son.
The second in line to the throne
was at Westminster Abbey chatting
to Alexander Downer, Australia’s
outgoing high commissioner in
London. He suggested Alexander
was a good name for the prince, who
was born on Monday.
“Well, it’s funny you should say
that. It’s a good name,” said a
smiling William.

William greets royal-to-be Meghan at yesterday’s Anzac Day service
William, 35, may have been joking,
but it was enough to cause a frenzy
in the name game betting market.
Bookmakers William Hill suspended wagers after slashing the
odds from 14-1 to evens in an hour,
while Ladbrokes cut the odds on
Alexander from 10-1 to 5-1, after a
flurry of wagers.
Mr Downer, a former Liberal Party
leader and foreign minister in Australia, brought New Zealand high
commissioner Sir Jerry Mateparae
9pI`Z_Xi[GXcd\i
IfpXc:fii\jgfe[\ek
into the conversation – and William
played along with the joke.
“And Jerry would like it to be Jerry
of course,” Mr Downer said. William
replied: “Jerry’s a strong name.”
Arthur, Albert, James and Philip
have been public favourites for the
first name of Prince George and
Princess Charlotte’s little brother in
the past few days.
Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said:
“We’re not entirely convinced about
this one, given that George’s middle
name is Alexander.”
William went to the Abbey to join
Prince Harry and fiancee Meghan
Markle at the Anzac Day service,
marking
Australia
and
New
Zealand’s armed forces.
William said mother and baby
were “very well thanks. In good form,
luckily. Sleeping’s going reasonably
well so far. So he’s behaving himself,
which is good news”.
At the Anzac Day service, the
Dean of Westminster, the Very Rev
Dr John Hall, paid tribute to the
thousands of soldiers from Australia
and New Zealand who made the
ultimate sacrifice in the First World
War and subsequent conflicts.
He said: “The landing of Allied
forces at Gallipoli on April 25 1915
led to one of the bloodiest battles of
the First World War.
“Australian and New Zealand
forces joined together for the first
time and a new word entered the
language: Anzac.
J\`q\
“The memory of what became
known as The Great War is with us
as a warning and an encouragement.
We are warned that war involves
suffering and death; we are encouraged by the spirit of national pride
shown by the soldiers we remember
this Anzac Day.”
The ill-fated Gallipoli campaign
aimed to seize control of the strategically-important Turkish peninsula
and the Dardanelles straits, the
crucial route to the Black Sea and
Russia. It ended with an Allied
withdrawal eight months later.

Tender
moment...
Alfie is
cradled by
his mother
Kate in
Alder Hey
Hospital
2016 with a rare undiagnosed neurological degenerative disease, which
doctors and independent medical
experts say is incurable.
In an open letter, Alder Hey chairman Sir David Henshaw and chief
executive Louise Shepherd said staff
“felt deeply” for Alfie and his family.
“Yet in the last two weeks we have
found ourselves at the centre of a
social media storm that has included
many untrue statements about our
work and the motivations of our staff,”
the letter said.
“This has led to often inappropriate
interventions from a range of external
bodies and individuals.”
Earlier, Mr Evans told ITV’s This
to dementia
:C8@I<PFLE>%%%8DFK?<IËJJKFIP
I WOULD never not have
George in my life in
whatever capacity,
whether he was well or
he had the condition.
In that sense I don’t
care about the condition.
But it is ravaging my
son and it completely
destroys families.
Since the seizures
started 18 months ago his
deterioration has felt
incredibly quick.
The hardest thing for
me is the unpredictability.
Because it’s a rare
condition the
professionals don’t have
the information available
to be able to predict a
pattern or a prognosis.
When you are faced
with that fate, all you can
do is make the best of it
and make the most of the
time that we have with
him, because otherwise I
think you would just lose
your mind.
Nights are very
unpredictable. It might
take him hours to get to
sleep or he might wake
up in the middle of the
night.
He has seizures every
day. Some days he has
very few, then on other
days it could be upwards
of 20.
To begin with his
seizures were very
distressing. You then
become used to it – and
it’s good to feel that in a
sense, because then if he
does have a particularly
big seizure you are more
prepared to cope.
He’s so brave and
determined, it hardly
seems to bother him. He
has it and then he gets on
with whatever it was he
was doing before. He’s
amazing in that sense.
I wouldn’t ever give up
on him – no parent would.
All he has to do is look
at me and he’s got me
and that’s it.
Morning Alfie was being given food
again after surviving for 36 hours on
his own.
“He’s proved all the docs wrong and
all the courts wrong,” he told the programme.
“We were told he wouldn’t last five
minutes but now here we are, 36
hours.”

SEVERAL groups of
neurological conditions cause
dementia in children, including
Batten disease.
Sufferers born apparently
healthy develop seizures and
dementia.
They lose vision and the
ability to walk, talk and eat,
becoming wholly dependent
on their carers for the rest of
their short lives.
The life expectancy of a
sufferer is around 13.
The gene CLN8 is passed on
from two unaffected parents.
The Batten Disease Family
Association estimates about
150 UK children and young
people have the condition.
Professor Paul Gissen, of
Great Ormond Street Hospital,
said: “It is much less well
known that dementia can also
affect young people. Often
these children have rare
neurological conditions
caused by genetic faults, such
as Batten disease.”

Depression drug
link to dementia
9p>`c\jJ_\c[i`Zb
TAKING antidepressants can increase
the risk of dementia by a third, a study
has suggested.
The warning comes after the largest
ever study into a family of drugs called
anticholinergics – used to treat
depression, incontinence, Parkinson’s
disease, hay fever and travel sickness.
Researchers at the University of
East Anglia’s School of Health
Sciences studied 27 million
prescriptions from the medical
records of 300,000 people aged over 65.
Lead researcher Dr George Savva
said: “We found that people who had
a new dementia diagnosis were up to
30 per cent more likely to have been
prescribed specific classes of
anticholinergic medications.”
The study results were published in
the British Medical Journal.
Pensioners
are more
content
than ever
with their
lives
Golden years
bring plenty
of cheer to a
happy Britain
9pJXiX_FË>iX[p
JfZ`Xc8]]X`ij:fii\jgfe[\ek
BRITAIN is a happy country and
is actually getting happier, a trend
led by the older generation,
research revealed yesterday.
Pensioners are more content
than ever with their lives and it
seems people of all ages are
assessing health, relationships
and personal wellbeing positively.
Most ratings have improved or
stayed the same over one or five
years, according to the Office for
National Statistics.
Retirement suits many people,
with those 65 and over reporting
high levels of personal wellbeing.
More older people give higher
ratings in the belief the things
they do are worthwhile and higher
happiness ratings on average
than 16 to 19-year-olds.
But both generations reported
a higher level of life satisfaction
than those aged 20-24 and 30-59.
More 65-79s felt their life was
worthwhile than 16-64s and more
65-84s reported a higher level of
happiness than the 16-64s.
:\c\YiXk\[
Those over 75 were more likely
to be satisfied with their income
and leisure time and feel they
belong to their neighbourhood.
Relate chief executive Chris
Sherwood said: “It is to be celebrated that most of us are content and satisfied.”
Unsurprisingly, younger people,
mainly the 16-24s, were more
likely to report higher satisfaction
with their health and engage in
physical activities. But challenges
include unemployment, loneliness, no one to rely on and no
sense of belonging.
People heading towards their
middle years, mainly 25-54s, were
generally more likely to be in
employment, but less likely to be
satisfied with their leisure time.
Silvia Manclossi of the ONS
said: “There’s growing recognition that how we are doing as a
nation is at least as much about
people’s wellbeing as it is about
the country’s economic health.”

...but millions still struggle
MILLIONS of Britain’s pensioners
are living hand-to-mouth as they
struggle to survive on their state
pension, a hard-hitting report
warned yesterday.
A quarter of all pensioner
households have no savings, the
equivalent of three million UK
residents aged over 65.
The basic state pension is
currently £122.30 a week, or £6,360
a year. Married couples receive
£251.90 a week or £13,104 a year.
Caroline Abrahams of Age UK
9pJXiX_FË>iX[p
said: “These older people are living
from week to week. The anxieties
must be immense and they are at
real risk of experiencing hardship.”
The report from Age UK calls for
pensions and other financial
services to be “age-proofed” to
help people better plan their
finances in retirement and more
discussions around what people
can reasonably do to sustain their
independence and quality of life.

DAVID Davis yesterday defied
Brexit doom-mongers by predicting the Government will be
ready to agree a trade deal with
Brussels in time for Britain’s
departure from the EU in 2019.
In an upbeat assessment of
progress in the negotiations, the
Tory Cabinet minister insisted
there was “no reason” why a
treaty cannot be prepared for
signing immediately after the
formal exit date next March 29.
He delivered his forecast as
ministers were braced for a fresh
attempt today by Brussels supporters to wreck Theresa May’s
Brexit plans in Parliament.
Up to a dozen Tory rebels are
expected to side with Labour in
a Commons vote on a backbench motion calling for Britain
to remain tied into a customs
union with the EU.

Appearing at the Commons
EU Exit Committee yesterday,
Mr Davis rejected suggestions
that the talks had become so
mired in complexity that the
wrangle for a treaty governing
the UK’s future relationship
with the bloc was likely to drag
on long into the post-Brexit
transition period.
He said senior European figures including German Chancellor Angela Merkel were pressing for a detailed draft document
setting out the future relationship to be ready by October,
long before the end of the formal exit period set out under
Article 50 of the EU’s rulebook.
The EU Exit Secretary said:
“Various important players have
made it very plain that they
want the substantive future
partnership to be very detailed.
“So there’s no reason why
we can’t turn a very detailed
substantive arrangement into
a treaty before the end of the
Article 50 period.”
Mr Davis also insisted his
department was working at full

POP princess Kylie Minogue defied her
years as she went out for a walk in New
York... with or without make-up.
The Australian singer, who turns 50
next month, is touring the US to promote
her new album Golden.
It has become her first record to hit the
No 1 spot in the UK in almost a decade.
Yesterday she went casual without
make-up as she showed off her glowing
complexion.
Keeping her wardrobe low-key, she
covered up her black and white dress
with a casual denim jacket.
And she looked hardly any different to
the day before when she stepped out of
her hotel with a full face of make-up.
Then she had made sure that she
looked the part as a superstar when she
signed autographs for her American fans
while showing off her figure in a summery
off-the-shoulder floral dress.
Minogue, who split from her fiance
Joshua Sasse, 30, last year, has revealed
that she’s given up on the idea of having
a baby of her own.
“I did pursue that. That obviously
wasn’t the path for me,” she said.
“But, I think now that I love being an
auntie.”

mum pace at the moment on
negotiation, diplomacy, policy
and parliamentary activity.”
Ministers are expected to
ignore the result of today’s vote
on continued customs union
membership, which is non-binding on the Government.
Mr Davis pointed out that
MPs will get a “meaningful vote”
on the outline of the expected
UK-EU trade deal this autumn.
But he admitted at that stage
the document would be “a political declaration rather than a
treaty draft”.
And he indicated that Britain
will quit the EU without a deal if
a majority of MPs vote to reject
the declaration, adding: “The
THE Government suffered another heavy defeat in the
Lords yesterday over flagship Brexit legislation as
peers backed stricter controls on ministerial
regulation-making powers.
Voting was 349 to 221, a majority of 128, for a
cross-party amendment to the European Union
(Withdrawal) Bill. It was the sixth defeat inflicted by
peers since the Bill’s report stage began a week ago.
This time the issue was so-called Henry VIII powers
which allow ministers to amend EU rules when they
are transferred on to the UK statute book post-Brexit.
Lord Lisvane argued that instead of ministers being
able to introduce regulations where “appropriate”, the
bar should be set higher at “necessary”.
He said: “I accept ‘necessary’ is a high bar, but
‘appropriate’ is a bar so low that it would challenge
even the most lithe and determined limbo dancer.”
However, Brexit minister Lord Callanan warned the
amendment could lead to worse policy outcomes.
Government is unlikely to put a
vote to the House which it
doesn’t intend to take properly
seriously. If the House rejects
the proposed negotiation, that
negotiation will fall.”
Mr Davis also rejected suggestions Britain’s membership
of the EU’s customs union could
be extended after the transitional “implementation period”
after Brexit, which is due to run
until December 2020.
He said he would “view that
on my part as a failure”.
At Prime Minister’s Questions
yesterday, Mrs May repeated
her insistence that Britain will
quit the customs union.
She told MPs: “The British
people voted to leave the European Union. In voting to leave
the European Union, they voted
to leave the single market and
the customs union.”
She also repeated her warning that she will walk out of the
negotiations rather than accept
a bad deal with Brussels, saying:
“I am very happy to confirm
what I have always said – no
deal is better than a bad deal.
“As regards being in a customs union, that means that we
would not be able to negotiate
our own trade deals around the
rest of the world – and we want
to be able to do that.”

Fan in fight for life
after Anfield attack
THE family of a Liverpool
football fan kept an all-night
vigil as he fought for life after
being attacked by armed Roma
hooligans.
Businessman Sean Cox, 53,
of County Meath in Ireland,
was at Tuesday evening’s 5-2
Champions League semi-final
victory at Anfield with his
brother.
Before kick-off a gang of the
Italian club’s fans – some
carrying belts – were prowling
outside the 52,000-capacity
stadium in Merseyside.
The married father-of-two
was found lying face-down
outside The Albert pub, with
critical head injuries. He is
9p:_i`jI`Z_\j
being treated at Walton
Neurological Centre.
Two Roma fans aged 25 and
26 were being quizzed on
suspicion of attempted murder.
Eyewitness sports journalist
Jonathan Northcroft said: “The
Italians moved in on one
Liverpool fan who looked fairly
big, but harmless.
“They knocked him down.”
A total of nine male
supporters, aged between 20
and 43, were arrested for
offences including affray,
assault, possession of offensive
weapons, drug possession and
criminal damage.
BANKING heiress Kate Rothschild
has spoken of her horror after a thief
broke into her home and snatched
jewellery worth £500,000 while her children were in bed.
Ms Rothschild’s two sons and their
babysitter were sleeping in the £5million house the music producer shares
with entrepreneur Paul Forkan when
the jewel thief struck.
Using a ladder to scale a rear wall,
the intruder crept into a bedroom, and
grabbed a large jewellery box before
fleeing the scene.
The pink Thomas Goode chest is
said to have contained “everything
precious” in terms of jewellery belonging to the 35-year-old Ms Rothschild.
It included wedding and engagement rings given to her by ex-husband
Ben Goldsmith and an antique dragonfly brooch.
Also stolen was a gold, ruby and diamond retro bracelet, a gold, four-row
trace link bracelet, a diamond, cushion-shaped, single stone engagement
ring in a platinum setting and a wedding ring engraved with the names
Ben and Kate.
Other stolen pieces have enormous
sentimental value – they once belonged
to her father Amschel who hanged
himself in Paris when she was just 13.
Mother-of-three Ms Rothschild discovered the theft when she and Mr
Forkan returned to their home in
Barnes, south-west London, from a
social event in the early hours of last
Thursday.
Ms Rothschild could not open her
bedroom door and they later discovered the raider had locked it from the
inside before escaping through the
Kate and her ex-husband Ben on their wedding day
window. She was reportedly “devastated” but also thankful that sons
Frank, 12, and Isaac, 10 and the
babysitter were unharmed, according
to Mr Goldsmith.

Ms Rothschild and Mr Goldsmith, a
businessman and environmentalist,
divorced in 2013 after nine years of
marriage.

“I can’t imagine the type of person
that breaks into women’s bedrooms to
steal their most precious things. I will
pay a reward to anyone with useful
information.
“She is really sad at the things that
have been lost. She feels like her personal space has been violated. But she
is relieved no one is hurt.”

TV COOK Annabel Karmel
told for the first time
yesterday how she was
robbed of a £16,000 Rolex by
three moped muggers.
The thugs surrounded the
5ft 1in children’s food guru as
she got out of her car in an
upmarket London suburb.
One grabbed her by the arm
while another threatened her
with a hammer as they
demanded her watch.
Mrs Karmel, 60, said: “I
went to get something out of
the boot and I looked up and
there were three guys with
their visors down.
“They were big guys. They
came from nowhere.
“I thought, ‘If I scream they
might hit me with the
hammer’.”
The mother of three relived
her ordeal in St John’s Wood,
north London, to support the
Daily Express’s Stop The
Moped Menace crusade for
tougher action against the
two-wheeled gangs.
Mrs Karmel helped bring
the three robbers to justice by
noting down the number plate
of one of their mopeds and
identifying the bag they stole

asleep, along with the babysitter, at
the time. I am also very relieved that
nobody was hurt or terrified during
the incident as it happened.
“The guy made away with a bunch of
stuff that means a lot to my ex-wife,
me and the children.”
One of Ms Rothschild’s neighbours,
who did not want to be named, said:
“Most properties around here have
very good security. But there have
been some break-ins over the last few
years.”
A Scotland Yard spokesman said:
“Police are investigating a burglary at
a residential address in Barnes. The
incident was reported to have taken
place between the evening of Wednesday, April 18, and the morning of
Thursday, April 19.
“A quantity of jewellery was stolen.
There have been no arrests and inquiries continue. Anyone with information
is asked to call Kingston police.”
Ms Rothschild and Mr Forkan
returned to the three-storey, red brick
house at around 2am, after a night out
in Mayfair, where they were special
guests at the launch of A Love Of Eating, a book written by Jemima Jones –
who is married to Ben Goldsmith.
The marriage of Ms Rothschild and
Mr Goldsmith hit the rocks in 2012
over Ms Rothschild’s alleged affair
with a US rapper.
Mr Forkan, 29, co-founder of the
fashion store Gandys, lost his parents
in the 2004 tsunami and has set up
homes for children orphaned in the
catastrophe.

MP victim backs our crusade
Kate Rothschild was out at an event in Mayfair
A SENIOR Labour MP who was
the victim of an attack by a
moped-riding thug yesterday
backed the Daily Express
crusade to help police to crack
down on such criminals.
Steve McCabe added his
voice to support for our Stop
The Moped Menace campaign,
demanding more protection for
police who fear suspension or
prosecution for dangerous
driving or causing injury if a
suspect falls off his bike while
being chased.
Mr McCabe was hit with a
brick last summer by a thug in
Birmingham, where he is MP
9p8c`jfeC`kkc\
for Selly Oak. The assault left
him with what he described at
the time as a “very sore and
swollen face” – but feeling lucky
the injury was not worse.
The Labour MP called for
special penalties for using
mopeds to commit crime, and
also for more imaginative
approaches to bringing the
culprits to justice.
He suggested that police
surveillance drones could be
an answer to tracking the
fast-moving bikes through
traffic, and that it should be
made harder for young thugs,
who are often using stolen
vehicles, to buy petrol for them.
Conservative MP Andrew
Rosindell, whose east London
constituency of Romford has
suffered an increase in moped
crime, also offered his support
to our campaign.
Mr Rosindell said: “I would
absolutely support a campaign
on the law if that is what is
required to give police the
confidence to be able to chase
these thugs and hooligans to
stop them terrorising
communities, which is what
they’ve been doing.”

AMBER Rudd yesterday spoke of her
“bitter regret” at failing to grasp the
scale of the Windrush scandal earlier.
The Home Secretary, who has faced
calls to resign over the crisis, told
MPs she had become aware there
was a “potential issue” over the “past
few months”.
But, she said: “I bitterly, deeply
regret that I didn’t see it as more
than individual cases that had gone
wrong that needed addressing.
“I didn’t see it as a systemic issue
until very recently.”
Ministers have faced a furious
backlash over the treatment of the
Windrush generation – named after
the first ship that brought them to
Britain from the West Indies in 1948.
People who had arrived before 1973
were automatically granted indefinite leave to remain but the Home
Office did not keep a record of those
allowed to stay or any documentation confirming their status.
Changes to immigration law in 2012
required people to have documentation to work, rent a property or access
benefits, including health care.
Ms Rudd was appearing before a
Commons Home Affairs select committee yesterday to be grilled on the
crisis.
She said the lack of documentation meant people “have been caught
up in immigration legislation that followed
20, 30, 40, 50 years
after”.
The revelations
have
prompted
fresh criticism of
the
Government’s “hostile
environment”
policy from 2012
to tackle illegal
immigration.
But emphasis-
I failed to grasp the scale of
Windrush crisis, admits Rudd
ing that those affected by the Windrush affair were in the country legally,
Ms Rudd said she preferred the
phrase “compliant environment”,
and insisted there is “nothing wrong”
in removing people here unlawfully.
Ms Rudd said as a result of the disclosures the Home Office launched a
major review to check whether anyone had been incorrectly deported.
She told the committee that to
date 7,000 of around 8,000 records
dating back to 2002 had been checked
with no wrongful removals discovered so far.
A dedicated helpline set up last
week has received 3,800 calls – but
only a third were linked to the crisis
affecting Commonwealth citizens’
right to stay in the UK.
Earlier, in the Commons, Jeremy
Corbyn demanded Ms Rudd resign
and accused her of taking a
“cruel and misdirected” policy
which she had inherited and
making it worse.
However, Prime Minister Theresa May insisted
the Government was
committed to ensuring
that those who were
entitled to be in the
UK were able to
remain, but said it was
right to clamp down
on illegal immigration.

THE
special
relationship
between Emmanuel Macron
and Donald Trump was showing cracks last night after the
French president denounced
nationalism and isolationism.
In a speech to the joint
houses of the US Congress, the
French president launched a
“thinly veiled” attack on President Trump’s America First
agenda.
Standing on a cushion, the
5ft 8in Mr Macron urged the US
to reject nationalism and stay
true to global ideals of co-operation in the face of terrorism
and other challenges.
“I do not share the fascination for new strong powers, the
abandonment of freedom and
the illusion of nationalism,” he
said.
“We can choose isolationism,
withdrawal and nationalism –
this is an option. It can be
tempting as a temporary remedy for our fears. But closing the
door to the world will not stop
the evolution of the world.”
The words were interpreted
by some as a rejection of

Trump’s America First
agenda,
including
his
desire to build a wall along
the US-Mexico
border.
The
BBC’s
North
America
editor Jon Sopel
called the speech a
“thinly veiled rebuke” and
an “extraordinary speech,
not just in its barely hidden
criticism” of Donald Trump but
in Macron’s apparent attempt
to offer himself as a global alternative to US policy.
Mr Macron spoke at the end
of his three-day visit to the US
as the first foreign leader to be
treated to a state visit during
the Trump presidency.
With a nod to the much-discussed “bromance” embraces
between himself and Mr Trump,
the French president reminded
the US Congress of the close
bond between the founding
French president Emmanuel Macron during his address to a joint meeting of Congress yesterday
father Ben Franklin and French
philosopher Voltaire.
They hugged and kissed each
other’s cheeks, he said to roars
of laughter. “It can remind you
of something.”
Earlier, President Trump
tweeted that he was eagerly
awaiting the speech before
Congress, but commentators
last night suggested he might
not have known what Macron
was about to say.
The American president said
on Twitter: “Busy day planned.

A planned visit in January did
not take place amid reports that
Mr Trump, left, has been hurt by
the threat of demonstrations.
Yesterday Labour
London Mayor Sadiq

protests against the leader of

He said: “We have got a great

by the Tory Bow Group, have
urged that the president’s trip

in Balmoral in Scotland.
dency last summer Mr Macron,
who received two standing ovations, said: “Our two nations
are rooted in the soil, grounded
in the same ideals of the American and French revolutions.”
Congress warmly received
French “first lady” Brigitte
Macron, who wore black.
She received a standing ovation as she walked to her seat in
the chamber’s balcony.
She watched her husband
also address global threats
from North Korea and Iran, and
touch on his country’s desire
for “free and fair trade” and
effective action on climate
change.
Speaking of the US, he said:
“Our friendship has constantly
grown more solid, dipping in
the ink of the challenges we
have yet to overcome.
“That is where we stand
today. History is calling us.”
Famous for his use of Twitter,
President Trump has so far
posted nothing in response to
Mr Macron’s speech.
Grieving families hit with £5.2bn tax bill
BEREAVED families paid a
record £5.2billion in death
duties in the last year, official
figures revealed yesterday.
The 2017-18 inheritance tax
haul was up £400million on the
previous year on the back of
soaring house prices and a
booming stock market.
But the introduction of the
new “family home allowance”,
which lets couples pass on
£850,000 tax-free, is set to see
the Government taking a
smaller cut of family wealth.
In April 2017 a new
additional allowance of
11
9pJXiX_FË>iX[p
£100,000 was introduced for
when a family home is passed
directly to children or
grandchildren.
Known as the “residence
nil-rate band”, it will increase
annually until it reaches
£175,000 in April 2020.
By then a couple will be able
to pass on £1million without
paying inheritance tax.
Rachael Griffin, tax expert at
Old Mutual Wealth, said: “The
inheritance tax haul hitting
record highs is somewhat
unsurprising, given the nil-rate
band was fixed and stopped
increasing in line with inflation.
“Since then house prices
have gone up, which has had
the effect of boosting HMRC’s
tax take.”
The threshold for paying
inheritance tax has been
frozen at £325,000 since 2009.
Everything above is taxed at
40 per cent.
That means some people
with a family home to pass on
become higher rate taxpayers
for the first time on their
death. If the threshold had
gone up in line with inflation it
would have been £414,000 in
2017, a rise of 27 per cent.
Not using the allowance, for
example by leaving a family
home to a sibling instead of to
children or grandchildren, sees
the taxman take an even
bigger chunk of the estate.
HMRC said it was doing all it
could to make people aware of
the nil rate band. Earlier this
year the Government
announced plans to overhaul
the death duty system.

AVID DAVIS went some way
towards reassuring those who are
concerned that the UK’s
departure from the European
Union may be watered down as he
appeared before the Brexit committee
yesterday. Confirming that he expected
us to leave the customs union and that
the Government would win its
Commons debate on the subject today,
this was a timely intervention, not least
because some Conservative Remainers
are clearly prepared to use this issue to
try to keep us in the EU in all but name.
As we have warned here before, such
playing with fire in the political arena
not only makes us look like a global
laughing stock but it also runs the risk
of allowing Jeremy Corbyn into
Downing Street, which would be an
unmitigated disaster for us all.
The real losers this week have been
the House of Lords. By deliberately
attempting to undermine the
democratic wishes of the British people,
they have shown themselves to be
totally out of touch, assured with a
breathtaking arrogance that they know
far more about what is good for us than
we do ourselves. Mr Davis was not just
standing up for the Brexit we voted for:
he was standing up for democracy.
The British people have spoken and
the Government intends to implement
their wishes.

NHERITANCE tax is an iniquitous
tax: it denies parents the chance of
passing on their estate to their
children, surely the most natural
desire the vast majority of parents feel.
It is also deeply unfair: the income used
to buy the family home has already
been taxed, as have any savings and
investments that have been built up.
And in the wake of a huge jump in
property prices it is levied at a rate that
is ridiculously low.
So although this year’s take has been
the highest, we at the Daily Express can
pat ourselves on the shoulder in the
wake of our highly successful crusade.
From next year the IHT take will begin
to fall as increased allowances come
through, something for which this
newspaper is at least in part
responsible. People should be able to
pass on the fruits of their lifetime’s
endeavour. We look forward to a plunge
in figures next year.

HOULD we be surprised that
we’re a nation of happy Brits, led
by our pensioners, according to
the latest data from the ONS? Not
really. Weather notwithstanding, there
can be few places that are better to live
in than Britain, with our innate sense of
decency and fair play. And what else
could you expect from a country whose
life philosophy is, “mustn’t grumble”?
K
HE past few days have
felt
like
swimming
through treacle. We
have spent the past four
years building TSB with
the mission of bringing
more competition to UK banking and breaking the stranglehold of the Big Five banks.
And customers have been
voting with their feet, joining a
bank which offers the kind of
service they want and we
believe they deserve.
The launch of our new, stateof-the-art computer system
should have been the icing on
the cake, the platform from
which to launch new services –
and I remain convinced that it
will be. But that is the future.
The fact that the system did
not work well enough for customers from day one is why the
past few days have been so
uncomfortable for everyone
connected with the bank.
The problems we have suffered since Sunday night are
not what customers have come
to expect from TSB. And it is
not the kind of service we pride
ourselves on providing. It
certainly falls short of the levels
of service which led us to be
Britain’s most recommended
high street bank. For this I am
deeply sorry. I can only seek to
reassure people that, together
with the bank’s 8,000 partners,
I am doing everything in my
power to get services back up
to scratch.
So what exactly went wrong?
And why? The scale and complexity of the task cannot be
underestimated. It was unprecedented – the largest banking
platform build and migration in
Europe and possibly the world.
@
T
INVOLVED
moving
5.5 million customers to a
new system – a mindboggling 1.3 billion records. For
the vast majority of customers
it went according to plan: they
never stopped being able to use
ATMs and their debit and
credit cards online and their
salaries, direct debits and
standing orders were all paid.
So the engine room of the bank
has been working as it should.
But I am not seeking to play
down the difficulties or the
impact that they have been
having on those customers
affected. And I am certainly not
looking to make excuses.
What I am trying to do is put
customers’ minds at ease. While
I’m a long way from happy that
services are back to normal, at
no point has customers’ money
or data been vulnerable. It is
they couldn’t spend it because
what they were seeing was in
fact their parent’s balance.
That issue was fixed within
20 minutes. We have a very clear
picture of how many customers
it affected – a maximum of 402.
We’ve looked at every payment
made through those accounts,
71 in total, and there were no
issues. I have written to all the
customers affected.
So what are we doing to get
back to business as usual? The
challenge now is to reassure
customers and show them that
the bank is working as some
are still struggling to access our
services in the way they usually
would. This is a question of
being able to cope with the
volume of demand.
Did we test it? Of course we
tested it. Everything that it was
possible to test in advance was
tested. What’s more we had
already previously transferred
many services, such as the
operation of cash machines, to
the new system. Once the
immediate matter of getting
services back to normal is complete you can be sure we will
turn our attention to finding
out what went wrong.
COMPLEX: There were problems with the banking app
Picture: PA
GXlcG\jk\i
KJ9Z_`\]\o\Zlk`m\
vitally important that this point
is clear.
And as I have said repeatedly, no customer will be left
out of pocket. The biggest issue
has been with the access to our
online banking channels, such
as the app. The challenge we
are still facing is that while the
back office is working well, one
of the main gateways to our
services – online banking – isn’t
functioning as well as it should.
Again, I apologise for this as I
appreciate how frustrating this
must be for customers.
We have also had an issue
with “linked accounts”. Everyone will have seen on social
media customers voicing concerns that, for example, they
were suddenly credited with
£13,000 that wasn’t theirs or
that they could see other people’s accounts.
Certainly, this needs an
explanation. Like most banks,
TSB offers customers the
ability to create “nominee
accounts”, where someone can
run somebody else’s account
for them. This is often parents
running teenagers’ accounts or
a carer helping an elderly customer manage their money.
The way it is supposed to
work is that the parent sees the
teenager’s account but not the
other way around. So imagine
the shock when a teenager who
thinks they are overdrawn
suddenly sees a credit of
£13,000. The reality was, while
they could see the large sum,
Ê<m\ipk_`e^nXj
k\jk\[`eX[mXeZ\Ë
J
O WHERE are we now?
Mobile banking is currently operating at 90
per cent of capacity – so for
every 10 customers who try to
access our mobile app, nine will
be able to access this service.
Internet banking is currently
operating at 50 per cent of
capacity – so for every 10 customers who try to access our
internet banking, five will be
able to gain access.
That clearly isn’t good
enough and still leaves us with
a lot of frustrated customers.
What’s most disappointing for
me and TSB partners is that
what should have been a massive good news story for customers has been overshadowed
by our false start.
Not moving platforms was
never an option for TSB. Since
launch we have been renting
Lloyds’ system. While it may
have been born from necessity,
once we have the new system
working perfectly I remain
confident that it will be something for customers to get
excited about.
It will be a springboard for
new services and our dive into
banking for small and mediumsized businesses across the
country. The sooner we can get
to that stage the happier I will
be – and I know that goes for
our customers as well.

N
ITH hands clutching
tightly at a knot of tearsoaked
tissues,
the
middle-aged
woman
sitting across my desk
slowly explained her
reasons for wanting a divorce. In
short she was sick of a neglectful
husband who’d come home from
work, eat his dinner and then snore
on the couch to the backing track
of Sky Sports. In her red-rimmed
eyes, all this was semaphore for a
bleak and hopeless future.
“Surely there has to be more to
life than this,” she pleaded, her face
freighted with desperation. “I mean
he’s not a bad man. He doesn’t hit
me, get drunk or leave us without
food on the table. But I just can’t
go on in this lifeless marriage.”
Having been a family lawyer for
more than 22 years, it is a story I’ve
heard many, many times before.
Yet although it is my duty to
guide my clients carefully and,
above all, make sure that divorce is
really what they want, I’d wager
they have been of even more help
to me than I have been to them.
You see, it is thanks to their
stories and their experiences that
I have learnt so much about how
to make a marriage – my marriage
– work.
It might sound a strange thing to
say. Not least because divorce – as
so often portrayed on the big and
small screen – is played out as a
boiling pot of acrimony and hatred.
Only this week, the BBC showcased
the opening episode of its new
drama serial The Split, which
focuses on a successful law firm in
London and the conflicts of the
family who runs the company.
However, out here in the real
world – in my case at Gorvins Solicitors in Greater Manchester where
I head the family law team – the
truth is far more complex. Yet it
also offers a painful masterclass in
how to avoid a break-up.
I married my husband Stephen,
56, a sports coach, 20 years ago – we
met after he played cricket with my
dad. Together we have three children: Olivia 17, Izzy 14 and nineyear-old Joe. Consequently life is
crammed to capacity and, as with
so many time-poor working couples, littered with the red flags that
could so easily knuckle a marriage.

P
ET two decades on we’re
still here. Not only because
my parents’ 50-year marriage provided me with such a wonderful template but because I’ve
learnt so much from my clients
about what sadly causes partnerships to fail.
Indeed, the 20-year marriage
milestone is a particularly significant one since research revealed
this week that married couples who
stay together for more than 20
years reported greater levels of
happiness.
But how do you reach such a
stage? Especially since divorce
rates in England and Wales have
increased for the first time this
decade. Well, one key thing I’ve
learnt from my clients is the importance of communication.
Many people who come to see me
have spent months, even years,
stewing over issues that make them
unhappy. It might be something
minor, such as the husband’s obsession with football. But as competing pressures, such as looking after
children and making ends meet,
crank up stress levels, bitter resentment begins to mushroom.
It is why use of the clause of
unreasonable behaviour, often
regarded as a way of securing a
quickie divorce, has now changed
THE FIRM: Deborah Findlay, Annabel Scholey, Nicola Walker and Fiona
Button star in TV’s The Split, top. Lawyer Nicola McInnes and family, above
beyond all recognition. Where once
it was marshalled for use against
alcoholic wives and gambling husbands, people now cite far more
trivial grounds – from his unwillingness to go on holiday abroad to her
desire to go vegetarian – to call
time on their marriage.
Yet as I work on such cases I’m
reminded how important it is not
to allow the small stuff to consume
the big stuff. And that’s why communication is so important and
why it’s vital to grab the time – any
time – when you can. It is not easy.
But, for example, if Stephen and I
go and watch our son play cricket,
we’ll try to use our time at the
ground to chat as the game unfolds.
Or I’ll insist that the family switch
off their phones and eat dinner
together (even though I know my
roast beef is a poor substitute for
Instagram and Snapchat).
It would be trite to say saving a
marriage is that simple, however.
There are so many other factors
that have the potential to cause
terminal damage. But from my
ringside position as a family lawyer,
I’ve tried at the very least to watch
and learn.
Take, for example, the matter of
money, which can be such an
inflammatory issue. Indeed one
study found that family finances
were cited as the main reason for
nine in 10 break-ups.
It goes without saying that financial pressures put a terrible strain
on a marriage. However, what I’ve
witnessed is how matters turn toxic
when one party is secretive about
money. Credit statements are hidden, bills tucked away. Financial
problems spiral and it is only when
there is total loss of control that
the uninformed partner finds out.
That is why I’ve learnt how important it is to be transparent about
money in a relationship.
We have a joint account and can
see what the other has spent. We
both work hard so it is not as if we
police each other’s spending. And
even if I do splash out on the occasional luxury, as I did recently with
a smart pair of sunglasses, the information is there if Stephen wants to
see it (and argue about it).
@
T WOULD be smug, arrogant
and self-satisfied though to
suggest that you can ever fully
indemnify a relationship from the
possibility of divorce. We’re all
human, after all. And even though
as lawyers, it is our duty to encourage people to work through their
differences, sometimes a husband
or wife will fail to see the warning
signs.
Typical of this scenario is when
one partner starts looking after
themselves more than the other.
I’ve long lost count of the number
of clients who have come to me
seeking divorce because their newly
minted keep-fit fanatic of a partner
(who was once a paunchy couch
potato) has met someone at the
gym.
How ironic that my work as a
divorce lawyer should have become
the most effective form of personal
marriage guidance. After a long day
it reminds me that I need to make
time for my husband – and he for
me. That we should never forget
the joy in little things – such as taking the mickey out of ourselves –
which keep a relationship lively.
That it’s vital to watch out for
the signals that signpost suggestions of separate lives held together
by a shared roof.
I’m also reminded of the importance of being able to say sorry.
Especially if I lose my cool about
coming home to a messy house. I
take a breath and tell myself it is
only messy because Stephen was
too busy picking up the children so
that I could work late.
Most of all, I’ve learnt that
divorce is awful. My heart aches for
the unhappy people I talk to each
and every day. They tell me of the
stresses of having to move house,
deal with traumatised children and
recalibrate their entire lives.
And while all this might dish up
perfect material for programmes
such as The Split, on TV it is just a
case of watch for the sake of watching. When I go to work I’m doing
my best to watch and learn…

HE upcoming royal nuptials – the gift that keeps on giving is it not? I cannot remember the last time a Windsor
wedding created so much to relish, from the never-ending
queue of Meghan’s relatives crawling into the limelight to
trash the blushing bride to ongoing speculation about
the depth of potential rivalry with Kate.
La Middleton has just played a masterstroke, giving birth less
than a month before the ceremony and ensuring all eyes will be
on her to see if she’s back in shape and as slim as ever. The
answer, incidentally, will be yes.
When Kate and William got married it was nothing like this:
even black sheep Uncle

to punch anyone. I’m

at Harry and Meghan’s
either but that is
because she’s avoiding
inviting the half-brother
who recently pulled a
gun on his girlfriend and
the half-sister currently
working on a tome entitled The Diary Of Princess Pushy’s Sister.
Actually, the halfsister said she’d change
the title amid speculation that she was hoping to score an invitation to the wedding but
given that she didn’t it
can only be a matter of
time
before
there’s
another change of plan.

Mystery of Russian nerve
gas expert run over by car
THE scientist who invented deadly
nerve gas Novichok was hit by a car
in a mysterious accident in Russia, it
emerged yesterday.
Vladimir Uglev, 71, the first Soviet
chemical weapons expert to synthesise odourless liquid A-234, was
taken to hospital in the Black Sea
resort of Anapa, after he was struck
on a pedestrian crossing, suffering
head, arm and leg injuries.
But he defied doctors’ advice and
discharged himself a day later, saying: “I’m not sticking around here.”
Mr Uglev has been widely quoted
since the British claim that Novi-

attack on ex-Russian double agent
Sergei Skripal, 66, and his daughter
Yulia, 33, in Salisbury, Wiltshire, on
March 4. Mr Skripal is in hospital
while Yulia is recovering.
Mr Uglev said: “I noticed the car
was going fast, not slowing down
ahead of the crossing. I started to
run and nearly reached the end of
the crossing when the car ‘got’ me.”
To avoid falling under the wheels,
Mr Uglev jumped on the bumper,

Mr Uglev said: “There were no
fractures. Doctors wanted me to
stay in hospital, but I said, ‘Bugger
you, I’m not sticking around here’.”
The former chemist first synthesised Novichok in 1975. He said:
“From the remains of the chemical
agents in the blood, it is possible,
with the aid of various types of analyses, to determine where the specific
dose was produced and by whom.”
He also raised concerns about the
security of nerve agent stocks after

the USSR’s collapse and said some
lab staff may have sold substances.
Mr Uglev said the Skripals’ survival meant they were poisoned with
only a minuscule amount of the
nerve agent – and recalled a terrifying moment when he accidentally
dropped a tiny amount on his hand.
“I rinsed my hands with sulphuric
acid and then put them under tap
water,” he said, adding it was the
only way to survive.
But researcher Andrei Zheleznyakov, exposed to a similar nerve agent
in a 1987 lab accident, died of multiple illnesses five years later.

STELLA’S RANGE FINE AND DANDY FOR PAUL
SIR PAUL McCARTNEY’S daughter
Stella has designed a range of
children’s clothes featuring some of his
favourite comic characters.
“The Beano was a huge part of my
childhood and the rebellious and fun
nature celebrated in the comic led the
design process of the new collection,”
says the 46-year-old fashion designer of
the range, which is available from June.
Stella’s creative collaboration is sure
to delight her 75-year-old super-fan dad
who had a cameo in The Dandy’s final
issue in December 2012 fulfilling a
life-long dream.
He said at the time: “The Dandy was a
favourite comic of mine when growing up
in Liverpool. In 1963, when the NME
asked what my personal ambition was,
I replied – ‘To have my picture in The
Dandy!’ ” Maybe Stella should extend the
range to fit “big kids” too.

TAYLOR SWIFT may return to
living the life of a recluse after the
gunman responsible for last
weekend’s US mass shooting
dragged her name into the tragedy.
Travis Reinking, who killed four
people on Sunday in a Waffle House
in Nashville, Tennessee, told police
the pop star was harassing him and
had hacked into his phone. The
29-year-old was arrested on Monday
after a manhunt. Police said he told
officers in May 2016 that the singer
told him to meet her at an ice cream
parlour and he chased her on to a
rooftop before she vanished. An
official said: “There is evidence of
some mental health issues.”
This will be the fifth time this
month that Taylor, 28, who
disappeared from the limelight for
much of 2016 and 2017 after a
backlash from fans for a number of
missteps, has been associated with
obsessive types.
A stalker broke into her New York
house last week, while another man
was detained outside her LA home
days before who was carrying a
knife, ammunition and a rope. A
homeless man was also arrested
after trying to scale a wall at her
Beverly Hills property, and this
month a man confessed to robbing
a bank in Connecticut and then
throwing some of the stolen cash
over the fence of her Rhode Island
home in the hope of impressing her.

Could your home help
you in retirement?
An increasing number of over 55s are making their homes work for
them in retirement, by tapping into the cash locked in their property.
For millions of senior homeowners the
largest and most successful investment
is their home, yet many don’t realise they
could tap into its value and access taxfree cash. With the average value of a
house in the UK more than tripling over
the past 20 years*, the key to your
financial security could lie in your bricks
and mortar.
Benefitting from the financial rewards
from rising house prices is usually only
possible if you decide to downsize, or sell
up for good. However, a lifetime mortgage
could allow you to access some of the
wealth built up in your property, whilst
remaining in your home for as long as
you choose.
A lifetime mortgage, the most popular
type of equity release plan, is secured
against your home just like a traditional
mortgage. The cash released is tax-free
and there are typically no monthly
repayments to make as the loan, plus roll
up interest is repaid when the plan comes
to an end.
HOW CAN I SPEND THE
MONEY?
You can spend the money however
you choose; so if you’d like to make home
improvements, jet off on an exotic
holiday or help out your loved ones,
equity release could be the perfect
solution. It is even possible to take out
equity release if you have an outstanding
mortgage, as long as this is cleared when
the funds are released.
SAFE HANDS
The Express Equity Release Service is
provided by Key Retirement, the UK’s
No.1 equity release specialist.
You can feel safe in the knowledge
that all of Key Retirements equity release
advisers are fully qualified and that all
plans are regulated by the Financial
Conduct Authority (FCA). Your adviser
will take the time to understand your
current situation and find the best
possible solution for your individual
needs and circumstances.
Equity release will reduce the value
of your estate and may affect your
entitlement to means tested benefits.
Due to this, it is vital to understand
exactly what taking out an equity release
plan means for yourself and your family,
both now and in the future. Your adviser
will actively encourage you to involve
your family in the decision making
process.
Unless you decide to go ahead, Keys
service is completely free of charge and
Keys typical advice fee of 1.95% of the
amount released is only payable on
completion of a plan.

REAL LIFE STORY - How Key helped Zena
Zena, from Kent, had worked in
the private health care industry for
over a decade when she decided it
was time to start thinking about her
retirement.
‘I had seen Key Retirement
recommended quite a few times,
and the reviews looked very
positive. I decided to get in touch
with them and find out what
financial options were out there for
me.’
After arranging an appointment
with a Key adviser who came to her
house, Zena decided to go ahead
and released £50,000 from her
house.
‘I’ve been able to pay my bills, make
some changes to the garden and
even go on holiday to Australia,
visiting my nephew. I’d recommend
Key Retirement, and already have
to both my sister and friends.’

TREASURED MEMORIES: Alex, left, and twin sister Ella on their third birthday
=
OR most young people turning
21 is an excuse for a big party.
But when Alex Laine considered how she would celebrate
her coming of age today, she
rejected the idea of a blowout
in favour of something with a little
more lasting significance.
“I was scrolling through Facebook
and a notification popped up saying,
‘Why not donate your birthday to a
charity?’ and it seemed like a really
good idea,” she says. “I thought
instead of having a big do with a load
of people giving me presents that I
don’t really need I would ask for
donations for something that actually
matters.”
And she didn’t have to think twice
about what that cause would be: the
Meningitis Research Foundation.
When she was three years old Alex
lost her twin sister Ella to the disease.
Such was the speed and ferocity of the
strain B meningococcal septicaemia
that took Ella’s life that even on the
morning she died there had seemed
to be nothing wrong with her.
The girls were at nursery when their
mother Sarah, now 46, received a call
saying that Ella was unwell with a
fever and what Alex remembers as
flu-like symptoms.
Sarah noticed a red rash on Ella’s
leg and knew enough about the symptoms of meningitis to do the glass
test. This involves pushing a glass
against the affected area and if the
colour does not fade under pressure
you have a medical emergency on
your hands.
Sarah bundled her daughters into
her car and rushed to A&E. It was
too late. Ella passed away just six
hours later.
Although at the time Alex could not
have been expected to understand
what had happened she says from
that moment on she has lived with a
feeling of there being “something
missing” from her life.
“I don’t think I understood the
significance of it at that age,” she
says. “But growing up my mum and
dad were always very open in talking
about her to me.
“For the 18 years since she passed
away I have lived my life always feeling like someone else was meant to be
there with me, who isn’t. I was obviously very young when it happened
but it has always felt weird and different that I don’t have a twin sister
when I should. I have only got photos
and videos to remember her by but I
have always said that it has felt there
is half of me missing.”
Alex, who also has an older sister
Bethany, 24, says that the intense
connection one has being a twin
means she still keenly feels the loss of
Ella. “I think of her all the time,” she
says. “Constantly. My whole life I have
always been wondering what kind of
person she would be at any particular
age, or what we would be doing now.
Would she have gone to university
with me? Would she have a
boyfriend?
“I wonder what her style would be
like, if she would be into make-up as
much as I am. I don’t know why but I
feel like she would have been more
reserved than me. But most of all I
just know she would have been my
best friend.”
Alex, who is an administrative
assistant from Plymouth, says she has
been astonished by the response to
her appeal. “I went through the
instructions and it had a default
target of raising £150 over the course
of two weeks. It seemed a pretty big
thing to aim for but I thought I’d try
for it,” she says. An hour later Alex
had already hit her target so she
doubled it to £300.
“I could not believe it,” she says. “I
passed £300 within another couple of
hours and the money just kept
coming. Next thing I know I have
raised more than £2,000. It’s crazy.”
8
T THE time of writing her
total pot stands at £2,797
and the fundraising page is
open to donations until Saturday
morning. The money that Alex is raising in Ella’s memory will go straight
to the Meningitis Research Foundation. The disease affects more than
2.8 million people globally each year.
Nearly 320,000 people died from meningitis in 2016 and along with neonatal
sepsis it remains the second biggest
killer of children under five.
The disease is caused by germs that
result in blood poisoning or swelling
of the brain and unless caught early
can prove fatal horribly quickly.
And even if patients do recover the
after effects can be life-changing:
bacterial meningitis leaves one in five

of those affected with a permanent
impairment.
The money raised will help fund
research into ways of preventing,
diagnosing and treating the disease. And Alex says that although
her family still feels the loss of Ella
it is on special occasions that the
tragedy is felt the keenest. For 18
years every one of her birthdays has
been a cause for sadness as well as
celebration.
“We will always go to her grave at
Drake Memorial Park in Plymouth
at Christmas and birthdays,” she
says. “It can be hard but if it is hard
for me then as I have grown up I
have realised how hard it must have
been for my mum and dad.
“To lose a child is most people’s
worst nightmare.
“Even to this day seeing my dad
cry is still one of the worst things for
me. I can’t imagine how awful it
must have been at that time.
“People sometimes ask me if I
ever feel like I have got survivor’s
guilt. I have not necessarily felt
guilty but it is incredibly frustrating
and unfair. It is hard thinking that
Ella is someone who is not here
when she should be. It makes you
question why it was her and not
anyone else.”
Alex says that although her family have often taken part in events
to raise money for the Meningitis
Research Foundation this has been
their most successful. And she
hopes that as well as any money
raised she will help make more
people aware of the importance of
the work the foundation does.
“As a family we have had charity
events and held barbecues and
parties to raise money but nothing
massive,” she says. “But when this
took off it made me think about the
charity itself. My mates are so supportive, too. They are all sharing
the Facebook post.
“I am not really a materialistic
person. I don’t really want those
kinds of luxury things people might
get for their 21st and I thought it
was a better idea for people to put
that money towards something a
bit more worthwhile.”
She also says that amid any
jubilation at the thousands of
pounds raised, and as well as the
traditional birthday congratulations, there will be a sadness today
that Ella, who would have been
turning 21 too, of course, will not be
there to join in the celebrations.
“That is partly why I didn’t want
a big party,” she says. “To celebrate
a major birthday on your own when
you are meant to be with a twin
seemed weird and just not right.”

A MOTHER whose four children were
allegedly murdered in an arson attack
has woken from her four-month coma
to be told of their deaths.
Michelle Pearson, 35, suffered horrendous burns and was left in a critical condition after the fire tore
through their home in Walkden,
Greater Manchester last December.
Her children Demi, 15, Brandon,
eight, Lacie, seven, and Lia, three,
died during or after the blaze. Two
teenagers, who cannot be named for
legal reasons, managed to escape.
Greater Manchester Police said yesterday that the mother finally awoke
from her heavy sedation this week and
was told of her children’s deaths.
On Monday three people will face
trial at Manchester Crown Court. Zak
Bolland, 23, Courtney Brierley, 20, and
David Worrall, 25, all deny the murder
of the four children and the attempted
murder of Michelle Pearson.
The trio also deny the attempted
murder of the two juveniles who
escaped and also deny arson with
intent to endanger life.
Firefighters were unable to rescue
siblings Demi, Brandon and Lacie.
Little Lia was taken to hospital after
the blaze but died a few days later –
while mum Michelle was in her coma.
Afterwards the Pearson family –
including the children’s grandad Mike,
auntie Claire and uncle Chris – paid
an emotional tribute to the “beautiful” lost siblings.
They said at the time: “Demi, such a
beautiful young lady with so many
friends. She was tough and so strong,
nothing could stop her, like another
mum to the younger ones.
“Brandon was going to be the next
Stephen Hawking, he was so clever
From left, Demi, 15, Lacie, seven, and Brandon, eight, perished. Three-year-old Lia, far right, died later in hospital
Michelle Pearson... horrendous burns
and you would feel like you were talking to an old man.
“Lacie was a little diva and she loved
to dance. There was always music on.
“Her teachers said she would ask to
go to the toilet then dance out of the
classroom and down the corridor.
“Little Lia loved Peppa Pig. She
even called herself Lia Pig. She was so
cute – the older ones doted on her.”

Naturecare Sounds Machine
Relaxing sounds that can help
relieve stress, insomnia and tinnitus
SAVE
Imagine drifting off to sleep to the sound
of waves lapping gently on the shore. Or
dozing to the soft pitter-patter of raindrops
on the roof. Well those are just two of the
options this relaxing sound simulator offers.
Others include bird song, woodland sounds,
heartbeat, white noise and a babbling brook.
All can have a calming, relaxing, unwinding
effect after the noise and racket of the working
day.
In addition, a number of people claim that
these familiar natural sounds help with
insomnia and can even disguise (and make
more bearable) the irritating ‘ringing in the
ears’ caused by tinnitus. With a choice of
seven sound effects, a volume control and a
30-minute timer, the Naturecare Sounds Machine has an integral speaker
and uses 4 AA batteries or mains-powered via an adaptor sold separately.

Live bomb taken
into school for
a ‘show and tell’
A GRANDAD passed a Second World
War bomb around his family for decades without realising it was live.
Old soldier Gerwyn Miles even took
it into a primary school to show his
granddaughter’s classmates.
He had found the bomb on a beach
while serving in the Far East more
than 70 years ago and took it home as
a souvenir.
It was kept in his house before being
passed around various relatives’
houses and even taken into a school
for a show and tell.
But his daughter Lynis Jones and
husband Lyn realised it was still live
when they found it during a clearout.
Army bomb disposal experts were
called to their home in Bridgend,
South Wales.
Lynis said: “It was a huge shock
when we realised that this device that
had been in the family for years was
actually a live bomb.
“The unit arrived around 11pm and
I was really worried about the neighbours because it was very noisy.
“They said it looked live because it
9p8e`c;XnXi
was in such good condition. They took
it out to the van and X-rayed it, which
confirmed it was live.
“They said if it had not been moved
around as much as it had they would
have evacuated the whole street but
because we had handled it so much
the decision was made not to.
“If it had been lying in an attic for
years and years, they definitely would
have evacuated everyone in the area.”
Lynis’ daughter Jessica said her
grandfather – who died 12 years ago –
would have found the story hilarious.
She said: “I remember bringing it
into school with grampa to show off to
all my friends when I was seven.
“My grandad must be laughing so
hard at all of this.”
South Wales Police said they set up
a 200-metre exclusion zone while a
controlled explosion was carried out.
A spokeswoman said: “An ordnance
disposal team inspected the device
and plans were put in place to dispose
of it safely.”

Brave shopkeepers
threw chilli powder
at armed attacker

A BRAVE shopkeeper hurled chilli
powder into the face of an armed robber who had threatened his wife with
a knife and grabbed their cash till.
The have-a-go-hero threw the stinging spices at the hooded raider as well
as fending him off with a ladder, a stick
and an advertising sign.
The shopkeeper’s wife also bravely
joined the fight, forcing the crook to
drop the till and flee empty-handed.
Robber Paul Callaghan’s knifepoint
raid was captured in CCTV footage at
Ernie’s News shop in Middlesbrough.
The 45-year-old, of Grangetown, has
been told he faces a long prison sentence after he pleaded guilty to the
robbery.
Callaghan initially denied charges of
robbery and threatening a person with
a knife and was set to stand trial at
Teesside Crown Court on Tuesday.
However, he decided to admit both
offences and was remanded in custody
until sentencing on May 15.
The court heard he had walked into
the shop in North Ormesby, at 5pm on
July 23 last year.
He had covered his face and was
carrying a large knife and bag.
He pointed the knife at shopkeeper
Ramyamuki Ithlayanathan saying:
“Give me all the money.”
She called out to her husband, Thilepan Thillainanathan, who told the
Shop hero...Thilepan
Dramatic CCTV footage shows the robber in the shop
robber he could have the money. But
the couple then fought back. Ramyamuki grabbed a stick while Thilepan
threw ladders at Callaghan, who left.
When he returned and repeated his
demands Thilepan threw handfuls of
chilli powder at him.
Callaghan grabbed the till, left the
shop and got on his bike with the till
under his arm. Ramyamuki ran after
him, grabbed the bicycle’s back wheel
Ramyamuki Ithlayanathan with the chilli used to fend off robber
and threw an advertising sign at him.
Callaghan dropped the till and ran off.
When he was arrested, covered in
chilli powder, he said: “I’m sorry I did
it. I never hurt anyone.”
Ramyamuki explained: “We keep
the chilli powder in the kitchen.
“It is quite strong so it will hurt if
you get it in your eyes.”
Through his lawyer Andrew Turton,
Callaghan had asked Judge Sean Mor-
ris for an indication of the maximum
sentence he would receive if he pleaded
guilty. He had a previous conviction
for robbery in the 1990s as well as for
theft and assaults.
He was told the jail term would be
no less than five years and one
month, but he would get a 15 per cent
discount on sentence for a guilty plea,
which would prevent the victims
having to give evidence.
THE heartbreaking
struggle of a couple torn
apart by the First World
War has been revealed in
love letters and photos
saved after being
discovered in a skip.
Lizzie Green wrote to
her husband Tom every
week after he was
conscripted and sent to
India for two years until
1919. She documented
the trials and
tribulations of her life as
she raised their son
Tommy and found a job.
She said: “I do love
you so, and you know it
is true love dear. I often
feel I have not been as I
should be to you but it
has been for our own
good as I have only got
the one child to look
after.” But Londoner
Lizzie added: “Never
mind when you come
home I will make it up to
you dear.”
The letters found in a
neat bundle came to
light when a house in
Broadstairs, Kent, was
cleared for demolition in
2013. The couple’s son
Tommy and second child
Eileen lived there.
The correspondence
has been compiled in a
book I Remain Your
Loving Wife Lizzie.

I WAS sickened by the feature on
abuse of the elderly and related
items about the carers who have
been convicted of systematically
stealing from those whom they
should be caring for.
When are the courts going to
realise how widespread this form of
abuse is?
While these carers were only
convicted of the few occasions
evidenced by video surveillance, it
is possible that they could be
stealing from others, too.
As soon as an offence is identified
and before any arrests are made,
the police, along with the
management of the care agency
they are employed by, should be
given the power to visit all the
other clients on the carers’
scheduled rounds and investigate
the possibility of further offences.
Only then will their real crimes
be uncovered and appropriate
custodial sentences imposed.

PEOPLE who abuse the elderly
who they should be caring for are
worse than animals and I fail to
understand courts who let them
off with the proverbial slap on
the wrist.
They should remember that one
day they too will get old and may
need the same form of care.
The justice system in this
country has been degraded
through a lack of funding yet
people who neglect vulnerable
people of any age should be made
to face up to their crimes and
punished severely.

TO all decent people with an ounce of compassion the
thought of deliberately mistreating or taking advantage
of a weak and vulnerable elderly person is completely
abhorrent (“The abuse of elderly must be hate crime”,
April 25). Sadly it is not uncommon.
In times of hardship, the weak are seen as easy targets
by thieves and cowards.
Care work, which is demanding and needs people with
a certain kind of temperament and vocation, is low paid,
readily available and doesn’t always attract the right
kind of person.
The elderly do need protecting because as old age
takes its course some may not be able to defend or
articulate their experiences effectively and so
suffer in silence.
Legislation to make such injustices against the elderly
and vulnerable a hate crime would be a good idea and I
hope Esther Rantzen’s campaign is successful.

who care only about themselves
and the EU (“Fury as peers vote to

£300-a-day attendance allowance
they keep drawing.
We only need about 100 in the
House of Lords, the rest are surplus
to requirements. Time for a debate.

for their boots.

IT was only a small headline
(“Public borrowing at 11-year low”,
April 25) but it will without doubt
be replaced by “Public borrowing
hits all-time high” should Jeremy
Corbyn and his crew ever set foot
in No 10.
The problem is that most of his
admirers don’t seem to understand
or care just how important an issue
this is. Nationalising everything
that moves and much that doesn’t
will cost billions of pounds.
And to those students who
believe that good old Jeremy

vote-grabber if ever I saw one –
will, I believe, find that particular
pledge will be put on the
back-burner too.

that we voted to leave the EU and
all its restrictions to business,

I would like to know what

I DON’T know why
everyone gets so hung up
about 80s style. I was a

yearned to look like some of my

Bowie was one of the kings of

many people criticising his style
choices. It went hand-in-hand with
his musical persona.
Every generation of angst-ridden
teenagers does their best to buck
the trend of the generation before.

HARSH REALITY:
Ben visits the
monument to those
who have perished
on the mountain
?@:B<P
ACTRESS Maureen Lipman has weighed
in on the Harvey Weinstein sexual
harassment debate. She fears young
actresses are especially
vulnerable due to the
profession’s high
unemployment rate.
“In our business it’s
worse because we are
80 per cent unemployed
so we are going to be
complicit in some sense,”
says Maureen, 71.
“We need a system
where agents never let young girls and
producers be on their own. And we have to
teach our daughters and ourselves how to
say no with grace.”
Not that anyone would ever dare try
anything on with Maureen, pictured. She
adds: “I would like to say I have kicked
someone but no one has ever had the
temerity to pin me to a couch.”
AS Coronation Street viewers hope for a
return to gentler, more humorous storylines
following the departure of controversial
producer Kate Oates, what news of that
stalwart of Corrie’s glory days Eileen
Derbyshire, 87, aka Emily Bishop?
Eileen, who joined Corrie in 1961, has not
been seen on the street since 2016 when the
actress requested a break “for personal
reasons” and her character departed for
charity work in Peru. In January it was
mentioned on the show that Emily had
returned to the UK, so could we soon see the
rover return to Weatherfield?
“She has not left the show,” a Coronation
Street spokesperson tells Hickey.

From just £199.99
Keep your garden tools, equipment and outdoor items
protected and tidy with this metal storage shed from
Waltons. The sliding double doors and ramp provide easy
access, and the doors can be secured with a padlock
(not included) through the pre-drilled holes in the door
handles.
Made from strong steel framing and panels, which don’t
require annual treatments or paints, this shed will look
great for years to come. The apex-style roof prevents
rainwater collecting, protecting the building from weather
damage and keeping items inside dry. Integrated air
vents prevent the build-up of condensation.
Available in either light green or dark green and in two
sizes to suit your needs. The 7 x 4.2ft shed measures
W7' (213cm) x D4'2" (127cm) x H6'4" (195cm). The 7 x

(195cm). Please note, the entrance to the sheds are on

These sheds are available with or without a foundation
framework kit. The foundation kit allows you to lay a
flooring of your choice (we recommend wooden boards
or concrete slabs), to give you a solid and secure floor.
The foundation framework means your shed will sit
slightly off the ground and stop any running water from
entering the interior of the shed, and allowing airflow to
ventilate.

Secret heartache behind
the IVF postcode lottery
T
Picture: GETTY
rying for a baby can
be a stressful time for any
couple. However it
becomes infinitely harder
if they struggle to
conceive. But as NHS
funds are increasingly squeezed,
more and more couples are losing
out on IVF treatment.
Nice (National Institute for
Health and Care Excellence)
guidelines state all women under
the age of 40 should receive three
free rounds if they’ve been trying
for a baby for two or more years.
But in practice, funding is often
turned down for a whole host of
reasons that vary from area to
area.
“IVF can be physically and
emotionally exhausting and the
added pressure of unsure funding
is cruel,” says fertility coach Nicola
Salmon (nicolasalmon.co.uk).
“Many women are taking out
huge credit card debts and
remortgaging their homes to pay
for IVF. Rates of depression and
anxiety are very high and I think
stress over funding is a huge
contributing factor.”
Last week Steve McCabe MP put
forward a Private Members’ Bill
saying everyone should have
equal access to fertility
treatment on the NHS, regardless
of where they live.
He says: “One in six couples
has an issue with infertility in the
UK. This is about real people and
the devastating impact infertility
can have on their lives.
“At the moment the guidance
issued by Nice is not being
followed and access has
become a postcode lottery.
“Access to treatment and its
costs can vary dramatically from
one town to another. I’d like to
see the cost of treatment
standardised and a requirement
that areas follow the Nice
guidelines. I believe that there is
cross-party support for changes
in the law.”

Sophie Marshall, 37, works
in sales and lives in Newbury,
Berkshire, with her husband
Charlie, 32, a digital
communications officer, and their
two-month-old daughter India
I’ll never forget the day my husband
and I told my mother-in-law that I
was pregnant. We made a cake and
iced “Granny” on the top, then
invited her round for a cup of tea.
As she picked up the knife to cut a
slice she burst into tears of joy.
It was a beautiful moment but
it took a lot of heartache to get
there. In June 2016 my husband
Charlie was diagnosed with
testicular cancer. Luckily it was
caught early so he didn’t need
chemotherapy but he had to have
one of his testicles removed.
We were due to get married that
November and had been planning
to start trying for a baby after the
wedding.
However his diagnosis changed
everything as the trauma of the
operation reduced Charlie’s sperm
count, meaning our only option
was IVF.
Our GP was confident the NHS
would pay for the treatment and
wrote a referral.
Devastatingly however, it was
refused because I was 35 years old,
even though guidelines say it
should be offered to all women
under 40.
Where we live in Berkshire,
women who are 35 and over are
automatically refused.
It was heartbreaking, especially
since we could never have
predicted that Charlie would get
cancer.
It made us angry to know that if
we lived in another area we would
be able to have IVF on the NHS
and at one point we even talked
about moving house.
We looked into getting private
treatment but because Charlie is a

daughter India, left, and Lu Fitoussi-Findlay with husband Raphael, inset
NHS cuts mean more couples than
ever before are being refused access
to fertility treatment. Two women tell
us about their battle to have a baby
special case each round would
cost £9,000.
After moving house and paying
for a wedding it was more money
than we could afford.
Over the next few months the
sadness of not being able to have
a child seeped into all areas of
our lives.
We lost touch with friends who
had children or were pregnant
because it was too painful to be
around them. Our families were
devastated for us too.
Then Charlie’s great-aunt made
an incredibly generous offer – she
would pay for our private
treatment. She’d never had
children herself and didn’t want
us to miss out too. We were over
the moon and in January 2017 we
started treatment.
A week-and-a-half after our first
round of IVF I was frying bacon for
breakfast when I was overcome
with nausea.
Two days later I took a
pregnancy test and to my
astonishment it was positive.
In January this year our
beautiful baby India was born.
Being a mum is better than I could
ever imagine and I’m overwhelmed
by the love I feel for her.
However I’m still angry that
getting IVF on the NHS comes
down to something as trivial as
which side of the county border
you live on.
Every would-be parent should
have a fair shot at getting the help
they need.
I was turned down
as I’m a stepmum
Lu Fitoussi-Findlay, 35,
a life coach, lives in Blackheath,
south-east London, with husband
Raphael, 32, who works in
property
Every time I look at my credit card
bill my heart sinks. In the past year
my husband and I have spent
nearly £10,000 on IVF treatment
and most of it has gone on our
credit card.
We didn’t plan to get into so
much debt but because of my age,
we knew precious time would be
slipping away if we waited while we
saved up.
I met Raphael online three years
ago and we instantly hit it off. A
year into our relationship we
talked about starting a
family but we knew it
wouldn’t be easy.
Although Raphael has a
son, he has a low sperm
count and it took several
rounds of IVF before his
former partner conceived.
We tried for a baby
naturally and I was hopeful
this time it would be
different. However when I
failed to conceive we started
thinking about IVF.
We’re in the London
borough of Greenwich and
when we researched online,
our area seemed to have fewer
restrictions than other places
in the country.
Our doctor was optimistic
the treatment would be
funded. However it was refused
because Raphael had a child from
a previous relationship.
I was devastated and angry the
NHS had decided I wasn’t worthy
of being a parent just because my
partner already had a child.
We look after Raphael’s son on
alternate weekends but being a
stepmum isn’t the same as having
a baby of my own. We had no
option but to start private
treatment straight away, even
though it was a stretch financially.
The first round of treatment
didn’t work and we’re about to
start a second one. However if that
doesn’t work I’m not sure we’ll be
able to afford another.
Trying for a baby has been tough
on our relationship and the added
financial worries make it almost
too stressful to bear.
It’s infuriating to think that if
we lived in a different area, we
might be able to have treatment
on the NHS. Everyone should have
the opportunity to be a parent if
they want to.

Get I Know
A Secret
for £3.49
at WHSmith
This week, the Daily Express and WHSmith
have joined together to offer I Know A Secret,
the latest novel in the Rizzoli and Isles series by
bestselling author Tess Gerritsen, for just £3.49.
When a young woman is found dead,
Detective Jane Rizzoli and Forensic Pathologist
Maura Isles are called to the scene of the
murder. Though the body bears startling
wounds, the actual cause of death is not
immediately clear.
A few days later, another body is discovered
– a seemingly unrelated crime, but the lack of
an obvious cause of death shows they have
more in common than it would first appear.
As Rizzoli and Isles race to discover the link
between the victims before the killer can strike
again, a mysterious person watches from the
sidelines. She has the answers they’re looking
for. But she knows she has to stay quiet, if she
wants to live…

How to wear...
FROM weddings to garden parties,
LK Bennett’s new collection The
Season has a stylish look for every
occasion. Dress, £295; clutch, £175; heels,
£195, all LK Bennett. (lkbennett.com)
White jeans
NOW that spring has finally arrived it’s time for a
wardrobe update, so I’m casting off my wintry black
denim in favour of crisp white.
White jeans are often viewed as a bit naff,
reminiscent of dodgy 1990s nightclubs or the
preserve of the St Tropez set. However they are
easier to wear than you think.
The key is to swap skinny styles for modern
cropped kick flares – such as this pair from
New Look – and avoid wearing white
head-to-toe. Instead break up your outfit
with simple patterns and neutral tones.
I’ve added a suede bag and raffia belt in
earthy shades and yellow heels to bring out the
pattern of the blouse to create a look that’s
simple, chic and perfect for spring.

Battery Powered Cat Repeller
Only £12.99 or buy two for £22.99
The Pest XT battery powered cat repeller is designed to send out ultrasonic sounds to
scare cats away from areas where they cause a nuisance. Simply push the metal spike into
the ground; ideally in a position where animals have been active, along paths or around
flower beds. Its PIR motion sensor will detect cats that enter the controlled area and emit
an ultrasonic sound for 5 seconds. The pest will learn to associate the noise with its own
movement, leading to a change in behaviour. It covers a 110-degree arc, to a distance
of up to 26ft (8m), giving a total unobstructed working area of 286 sq. ft. If the cats have
a habit of feeding and fouling in your garden, it can take 14-28 days to deliver the full
deterrent effect. Occasional visitors will usually be stopped within a week. Powered by 3 x

RELIEF: Silicolgel
has helped to
transform the lives
of sufferers, giving
them control back
E HAVE all suffered at times
with a dodgy tummy that lingers.
It can leave us feeling out of
sorts for a day or more but for
some the problem is worse – it
does not just linger, it stays. If
you have a gastrointestinal disorder that
just will not go it can turn your life on its
head, leaving you not just feeling poorly but
reluctant to even leave the house.
Carol Williams, 74, felt like her world was
coming to a standstill and she did not want
to commit to social engagements in case
she was going to suddenly become ill.
It was a double blow as she also suffers
from spinal problems and rheumatoid
arthritis. She says: “I can’t go out alone as
my balance is dreadful and the fear of not
being able to get to a toilet meant I didn’t
want to be too far from home – or even far
from my own bathroom.”
Carol first suffered gastrointestinal
discomfort as a teenager. Her symptoms
included flatulence, abdominal discomfort
and stomach pains but it was in her early
50s that flare-ups became common.
“My symptoms are so severe I can barely
tolerate the pain,” Carol says. “First, I get a
nagging pain down my side, then abdominal
discomfort accompanied by flatulence
which makes me feel as if I need to urgently
use a toilet. The pain is horrendous and in
the past I haven’t been able to control the
pain without strong painkillers.”
Then Carol, of Maltby, South Yorkshire,
saw an advert for Silicolgel, an oral gel that
helps manage and relieve gastrointestinal
discomfort.
“Since taking Silicolgel, I have had three
years of relief from the daily miserable

looks at a cure for
tummy problems
symptoms,” she says. “It’s absolutely
incredible. At the moment I am taking a
maintenance dose of one tablespoonful
a day but if I feel anything building up,
I’ll go back to three times a day.
“There’s less pain, less flatulence and my
general digestive system feels much more
comfortable.”
Silicolgel forms a protective, soothing
coating over the lining of the stomach and
intestines. The colloidal silicic acid attracts
and holds most irritants, toxins and
pathogens, rendering them harmless so that
they can be removed through the intestines.
“It’s so nice now to be in control,” she
adds. “My husband used to have to do all
the shopping but now I can go out with
him and we take the wheelchair to shop
together. Previously I would visit family but
not stay long, whereas now we enjoy family
get-togethers.”
Life is now much more pleasant all round
for Carol. “I am much more sociable,” she
says. “We often go to the pub on a Friday
night, enjoy a meal out and meet friends.”
● Silicolgel, £8.29 (200ml) or £18.49 (500ml),
is available from Tesco and Holland &
Barrett.

Fat chance of being thin
O
ver the years I’ve built
up an archive of bizarre
TV programme titles. For
a long while, the crown
was held by Kevin
McCloud’s Man Made
Home. It was then claimed by How
To Live Mortgage Free With Sarah
Beeny. But all bets are off since
yesterday with the launch of
Britain’s Fat Fight With
Hugh FearnleyWhittingstall (BBC2).
It’s a shame that Hugh, chef,
writer and campaigner, has a
hyphen in between his last two
names. If he didn’t, they could have
put one in between “fat” and “fight”
and made “fat-fight”.
As it is, this clumsy title suggests
a very off-colour kind of martial arts
programme. If TV chefs are to be
filmed fighting with fat people for
Matt Baylis
on last
night’s TV
our entertainment then what next?
Despite being let down by the title,
Hugh is on another worthy crusade,
trying to start a grassroots healthyeating movement. It’s a better use
of airtime than all the programmes
devoted to explaining why we’re so
fat and what grisly things are going
to happen to us.
There was some of that still, to be
fair, from the glut of takeaway
outlets to the pumping of sugar and
salt into processed foods. Mainly
though Hugh was in Newcastle, the
chosen site of his first fat battle,
trying to win hearts and minds.
As war zones go, it wasn’t as
confusing as Syria but it still
wasn’t straightforward. A lady
called Julie took Hugh around her
home turf of Walker, its fruiterers
and greengrocers long replaced by
tin shutters or takeaways.
Thinking the answer was clear,
Hugh stocked a van with fruit and
veg and started pushing it at
passers-by. This was when Majid,
owner of one of the few functioning
small businesses, sternly came over.
He sold fruit and veg in his mini
market, he pointed out. He was
selling less and less of it, year on
year though, because only older
people wanted it. Only older people
had the time to prepare it, Julie

Health: The Truth About Obesity,
8pm, BBC1
Hot on the heels of the new series
from Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall on a
similar theme that started last night,
comes this offering from Chris Bavin
(left). Statistics indicate that nearly
one-in-four people in the UK qualifies
as being obese, meaning their weight
is affecting the state of their health. In
order to fully understand the situation,
Bavin gets hold of the latest research
into obesity and the problems that are
being passed to future generations.
He finds out what it means to be
obese, what it does to the body and
looks at the most up-to-date solutions
available. He also reveals how we
can test ourselves with a simple piece
of string to find out if we have the most
damaging type of fat.
chipped in. It often felt like that,
one seemingly slender problem
ballooning out into XXXL, beyond
every peak another, taller one.
Newcastle might need to lose a
few stone but we all need more of
Hugh. Watch him pestering the
press office in the big food
corporations or making peace with
an irate shopkeeper and you see a
consummate campaigner, polite,
persistent, genuine.
Whatever the fight, you want
Fearnley-Whittingstall on your side.
Like many people I’m unsure
what the term “love-hate affair”
really means. Answers could be

programmes from Channel 5 in
which people candidly discussed
their struggles with drugs.

art create a realm to help people escape from everyday

slightly well known and almost
entirely unknown faces but all,
significantly, identified by first

leveller, putting the Hollywood star
in the same boat as the office
manager. Whatever their route to
addiction, almost all described this
same, forever twisting relationship
to their chosen poison, like a toxic
love affair.
One man cried when he entered
rehab because it meant saying
goodbye to his drug. Another

spent sitting on a hotel bathroom
floor, shoving powder up his nose

Undergoing a transformation will be
liberating. You’ve gone as far as possible
with your circumstances. Now it’s time to
move to higher ground. Whether this
involves leaving a toxic relationship, quitting
a job or breaking a bad habit is unimportant.

Libra Sep 24 – Oct 23
You want a happy home life that
allows you to thrive. This could mean moving

neighbourhood or downsizing your lifestyle.
Instead of dwelling on it all, assume
everything will work out well.

Scorpio Oct 24 – Nov 22
It’s time to speak out to those in
power. If the people in charge will not treat a
serious problem, talk to the media. When
appeals to decency don’t work, negative
publicity will. You’re tired of seeing innocent
victims being mistreated.

A moneymaking opportunity is
worth pursuing. It will pave the way to
long-term financial prosperity. In the past,

you’d rather secure a steady position that is
guaranteed so you can save regularly.

fear that the man will return and
catch them at work. All goes
well, however, and at length
with much puffing and blowing
the pair find themselves free.
Suddenly they hear the man

It’s super spice to the rescue
Turmeric helps us in
so many ways, says
GEORGE NICHOLS
T
he future is bright – the future is
orange. The super spice turmeric
that colours so many curries is
bringing light to many aspects of
medicine. Scientists are
discovering that the ground root
of the turmeric plant, used in many
ancient Chinese and Indian medicines,
can take on ailments that plague the
modern world.
Turmeric grows in countries such as
India and Indonesia and is related to the
ginger family – it is the knobbly root that
is important, rich in the compound
curcumin.
Perhaps the most powerful aspect of
curcumin – and certainly the one that it
is most widely used for – is its ability to
control inflammation.
Research has found that it can be far
more effective than either aspirin or
ibuprofen. Its abilities are important in
that it is now believed that low-level
inflammation plays a major role in
almost every chronic, Western disease.
As such, anything that can help fight
chronic inflammation can be of longterm benefit to our future wellbeing.
Cancer, ulcerative colitis, arthritis,
high cholesterol and chronic pain,
increasingly common today, are all
associated with inflammation.
Research has also shown that
curcumin can thin the blood, meaning it
could be useful for treating patients with
FUTURE’S BRIGHT: Turmeric can help to control inflammation and also encourage wounds to heal
THIS MUCH
TURMERIC
blood clots. Other tests even suggest
that turmeric could have a beneficial
effect on those suffering from
depression. It has also been shown to be
good for the skin, helping wounds to
heal and reducing acne and its scarring.
However it is arthritis sufferers who
could be the biggest winners, thanks to
curcumin’s powerful anti-inflammatory
and pain-reducing characteristics.
Studies have shown that it can
reduce joint pain but also that it is
effective in preventing the problems in
the first place.
That means that a regular intake of
curcumin can give our bodies a fighting
chance of warding off the problem of
aching joints, whether simply caused by
day-to-day life or by a more chronic
ailment.
And yet no matter how many curries
we eat, our bodies can’t get the amount
of turmeric they need. The answer is a
diet supplement.
Turmeric+ from FutureYou, the leader
in such supplements, comes in tablet
form and is 30 times as absorbable as
turmeric itself.
It also contains vitamin C, which
contributes to collagen formation to
help keep cartilage working normally.
The product is as useful for those
who are fit and active – keeping the
muscles in good condition after
exercise – as it is for those who are
beginning to ache.
Turmeric is one of nature’s superfoods
with the backing of the scientific
community – and yet unlike so many
superfoods it isn’t costly or hard to find
in the shops, simply involving one tablet
a day.
The future really is bright – and
researchers are learning more about the
properties of turmeric all the time.

Comcast bids
£22bn for Sky
COMCAST sparked a potential bidding
war with Rupert Murdoch for Sky after it
launched a formal £22billion offer for the
satellite broadcaster.
The US cable giant had already flagged
its intention to gatecrash Murdoch’s 21st
Century Fox bid to buy the remaining 61
per cent of Sky it does not already own.
Its £12.50-a-share offer represents a 16
per cent premium to Fox’s £10.75-a-share
deal. It has been held up by concerns
about the influence Murdoch could wield
over public opinion given his ownership
of newspapers including The Sun and
The Times.
Fox has also struck a deal to sell assets
including its Sky stake in a near-£50billion
deal to Disney, which has been told by
the UK takeover panel that it must make
a full takeover bid for Sky even if Murdoch’s bid to take control fails.
Sky said it was withdrawing its recommendation of Fox’s offer following Comcast’s higher cash bid.
Comcast, whose NBCUniversal media
and entertainment company employs
more than 1,300 people in the UK, said it
would use Sky as a platform for growth
across Europe and would maintain Sky’s
UK headquarters in west London.
CEO Brian Roberts said: “We already

AS BOOHOO SALES SOAR
SHARES in online fashion
retailer Boohoo jumped
25½p to 179¾p as it nearly
doubled annual sales to
illustrate the growing trend
for internet shopping.
The business founded in
Manchester in 2006, which
targets 16-30-year-olds,
grew revenue by 97 per
cent to £579.8million in the
year to February 28.
Pre-tax profit was up 40
per cent to £43.3million.
Joint CEOs Mahmud
Kamani and Carol Kane
hailed an “exceptional”
performance by its recently
acquired PrettyLittleThing,
where active customers
more than doubled to 3
million, while another
acquisition, Nasty Gal, also
exceeded forecasts with
revenue of £24.4million.
The company has made
a “strong start” to the new
financial year, putting it on
course for revenue growth
of 35-40 per cent.

have a strong presence in the UK, having
invested over $1billion in film and TV
productions there over the past three
years, and believe that it is, and will
remain a great place to do business.
“We will be a strong steward of its valuable brand We also understand the role
that Sky plays in UK society and in its
customers’ lives and we are determined
to be responsible and trusted owners.
“We intend to support the creative
industries in the UK, increase investment in UK film and TV production, support Sky’s technology hub in Leeds.”
Fox said it remains committed to its
recommended offer for Sky announced
in December 2016 and is “considering its
options”. Sky shares rose 51p to 1359p in
anticipation of a higher bid.
Hargreaves Lansdown analyst George
Salmon said: “There’s a distinct possibility of a bidding war.
“Part of the reason the value of the
deal is significantly higher than what Fox
originally put forward is that Sky has
since secured three more years of rights
to Premier League football at a reduced
cost. As far as the value of Sky goes,
that’s a game-changer.”
Whitbread plans Costa coffee break
WHITBREAD is to spin off its Costa Coffee
chain as a separate company after pressure
from activist investors.
The Premier Inn operator said the
demerger of Costa, the UK’s biggest coffee
chain with over 2,400 shops, would be pursued “as fast as practical and appropriate” to
boost value for shareholders and is expected
to be completed within two years.
Chairman Adam Crozier said the separation would provide an “enhanced focus” and
give shareholders an investment in “two
high-quality businesses”. Group annual pretax pofit rose 6.4 per cent to £548million on
6.1 per cent higher revenue of £3.3billion.
Shire backs Takeda takeover
DRUGS giant Shire has signalled
its support for a £46billion takeover by Takeda Pharmaceutical.
The board of the FTSE 100

treatment Adderall, said it would
be willing to recommend the
improved £49-a-share cash and
stock offer, the fifth proposal
made by the Japanese firm. Shire
Plea to Lloyds over closures

LLOYDS Banking Group has

REDEMPTION
was
swift
for
under-fire
jockey Paul Townend
with a treble on the
second day of the
Punchestown Festival.
His wins included the
Grade One victory of
Next Destination in the
Irish Daily Mirror Novice
Hurdle when Townend
gave a muscular display
of brute strength on a
very willing partner.
It had been ‘Pariah
Paul’ on the Tuesday as
he inexplicably crashed
through the wing at the
last fence of the Growise
Champion Novice Chase
on Al Boum Photo and
picked up a 21-day ban
for dangerous riding.

RUGBY UNION: AVIVA PREMIERSHIP
By Adam Hathaway
SARACENS’
Alex
Lozowski says having
Billy Vunipola back for
the season’s run-in will
be like the club dipping
into the transfer market
and landing a major
signing.
The England No 8 hopes to
feature in Sunday’s Aviva
Premiership clash at London
Irish after being out since the
middle of January and missing
the Six Nations with a broken
arm.
Added to that, Vunipola was
sidelined for a chunk of action
–
including
the
autumn
internationals – after having
knee surgery in September
and had his Lions tour hopes
last summer dashed by a
shoulder injury.
Saracens have also been
boosted by the return of lock
Michael Rhodes following an
horrendous hamstring injury.
And Lozowski, inset, believes
Vunipola will be champing at
the bit as Sarries bid to reclaim
the league title from Exeter.
“These guys coming back
into our team will
be
like
new
signings,”
said
Lozowski.
“The
issues they have
this
year
with
injury, they have
not featured as
much as anyone
would have liked.
Bringing these guys back is
going to be important for us.
“It has been a season when
we have had a hell of a lot of
injuries. It would be easy for
those guys to let their heads
drop and that could have a

negative impact on the team
but that has not been the case
this year.
“They are still laughing and
joking but, deep down, we
know they have been deeply
frustrated. I can’t
speak
highly
enough of the way
they have carried
themselves about
the place.”
Saracens’ hopes
of a third straight
Champions
Cup
win went up in
smoke with their quarter-final
defeat by Leinster in Dublin on
April 1.
For the past few seasons
they have been
fighting
on
both domestic
They have

and
European
fronts deep into
the
season
but this time,
now being out
of Europe, they
can concentrate
purely on the
Premiership and
enjoy a couple of
weekends off.
“We wanted to go all
the way in both but we
have to take it as a positive,”
added Lozowski. “That gives
us a chance to use those two
weeks when we are not going
to be playing to our advantage
and to fine-tune ourselves for
the
upcoming
games. It is a
huge run-in
for us now.
Daily Express Thursday April 26 2018

Main picture: STU FORSTER
When you are in it, it does not
seem too bad because you are
so involved in it, you are
engulfed by it. We won the
European Cup last year and
we were a minute from getting
to the Premiership final. Nine
times out of 10, we probably
win that game against Exeter.
“We have managed it for a
couple of seasons but at least
now we can put all our eggs in
the Premiership basket and
properly go for it.”
Since the European exit,
Saracens
have
thumped
Northampton 63-13 and Bath
41-6 and can seal a home semifinal with a win on Sunday
whilst sending the Exiles down.
And those two wins show
they have bounced back and
mean business according to
Lozowski, who can seal an
England tour spot in South
Africa with a decent run of
games.
“It was huge off the
back
of
Dublin,
which was really
disappointing,”
he said. “We had
a positive week
in training and
we were honest
with ourselves
in
terms
of
where we were
not good enough.
“We
put
our
hands up and said we
were not where we want
to be. There was a lot of
honesty there.”

some high-profile

too often tolerated by
the tennis authorities.
However, the review
panel did not find
evidence of a cover-up
by either the Tennis
Integrity Unit or
governing bodies the
International Tennis

Association of Tennis
Professionals.
In the report, one
betting operator said
“the situation in tennis
is grimmer than grim”.
GEORGE
NORTH
believes he can help take

season, has signed a

with the region. He said:
“I’m really excited to be
joining the Ospreys and
starting a new chapter in
my career when I return
to Wales.
“I believe the Ospreys
have an exciting future
and I’m looking forward
to linking up with Allen
Clarke and the squad.”
The Ospreys have been
the traditional standard
bearers in Welsh rugby
but a shocking campaign
saw them part company
with head coach Steve
Tandy midway through
this season.
Clarke took charge on
an interim basis and has
since been appointed on
a permanent three-year
deal, with North quickly
signing on too.
North
hopes
his
decision to join the
Swansea-based Ospreys
– on a dual deal which is
60 per cent funded by the
Welsh Rugby Union – can
help him go to another
level.
“It was a really positive
decision for me to sign a
National Dual Contract
with the support and
structure it provides,” he
said. “I have worked
alongside the WRU to
finalise my choice of
region and I would like to
thank everyone involved.
I’m really looking forward
to becoming an Osprey.”

REPORTS
SOME PEOPLE may
worry that, for Arsene
Wenger, the Europa
League is the last throw
of the dice when it
comes to keeping his
legacy intact.
The
Arsenal
manager,
however, plays for much
higher stakes than that and it
is not so much the next few
games that worry him as what
lies beyond.
“I am a bit like a guy who
plays Russian Roulette every
week and suddenly has no
gun any more,” he said. “I
don’t know now how addicted
I am. I will see how much I
miss that gun.”
The next two legs against
Atletico Madrid, good enough
to split Barcelona and Real
Madrid in La Liga currently,
will determine whether his
Arsenal saga ends with a
European final in his native
France or Huddersfield, for
his somewhat prosaic Premier
League bow.
European decoration is the
one thing missing from a
35-year career in which
the

of
Wenger’s
participation
has
been
remarkable rather than his
success.
Tonight is his 259th game
as a manager in European
football for Monaco and
Arsenal and, by the end
of the season, he could be just
nine shy of Sir Alex Ferguson’s
tally of 270 for Aberdeen and
Manchester United.
Regardless of what Arsenal
think, Wenger yesterday gave
a hint of his plans for next
season when he suggested
that he was out to catch his
age-old rival.
“I will continue to work,
that’s for sure,” he said. “I
hope these are not my last
European cup games.
“I think on the list of the
guys who have played in

European competition and
Wenger’s tally of just three
finals – one with Monaco – is
disappointingly small beer.
It is that empty space in the
Arsenal trophy cabinet that
annoys Wenger most in the
final days of his tenure.
“Yes, we lost two finals,” he
said. “But we have to say they
were under very special
circumstances,
one
on
penalties [against Galatasaray
in 2000] and one with 10 men.
“When you look across
Europe, with the financial
power everybody has, it is not
easy now to get in there.
“So the Champions League
final in 2006 was my biggest
regret, yes.
“Just to get there, we played
against Juventus, who had
Zlatan Ibrahimovic and David
Trezeguet up front and
Patrick Vieira, and Real
Madrid, who had Zinedine
Zidane, David Beckham, Luis
Figo and Cristiano Ronaldo.
“The
difference
looked
bigger on paper than it does
today, so to beat Barcelona
in the final would have been
the greatest achievement as
well.
“We went to the final
without conceding a goal and
then lost with 10 men in the
final in an unfortunate way.
“Apart from that, I have no
real time to look back. I look
forward – and forward is
tomorrow.”
As quickly as that, Jens
Lehmann’s sending-off and
Juliano Belletti’s late winner
disappear back into the past.
Lifting that trophy in Lyon
would, of course, be a worthy
end to Wenger’s 22 years in
charge
but
somewhat
generously, he would rather
leave the dreaming until
after he has finished at the
club and taken up his TV
commitments – and even
then they are our dreams
not his.
“At the moment I am
just focused on this
game,” he said. “My
job goes to May, then
I will go to Russia and
see England win the
World
Cup.
On
penalties...”
Relaxed
and
smiling
at

ground, Wenger
seems strangely
at peace now
that his future is determined.
Names are being touted for a
job which, for another season
at least, he probably feels
should still be his. But then
he knows how the media
works.
“You will not be short of
candidates,” he said. “That
shows you that the place is a
good place. Green outside,
nice
trees,
good
grass.
Fantastic.
No
pollution.
Until the press conference
starts.”
It is the sort of sly dig that
will only be properly missed
when it is gone. Wenger is not
so sure.
For all that he would love to
lift that European trophy, the
associated place back in the
Champions League to hand
on to his successor still seems
a greater driving force for the
68-year-old.
“Maybe when you have a
big ego at 40, you think
the world cannot live
without you,” he said.
“At
my
age,
you
understand that when you
go, the world continues
and you wish that it
continues better.
“You do not give 22 years of
your life for something

FIGHTBACK: Marcelo fires in Real Madrid’s equaliser in Munich last night
Asensio is Real’s
ace as Zidane
shuffles his pack
THOMAS MULLER lamented
missed opportunities for his “naive”
Bayern Munich side after Marco
Asensio’s winner for Real Madrid at
the Allianz Arena last night.
Bayern captain Muller squandered
three big chances in the first half as
Zinedine Zidane’s Real came from
behind to record their sixth win in a
row against the German champions.
Muller said: “We were too naive.
We had a lot of chances and went in
at 1-1, but it was 2-1 soon after the
break.”
And Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes
was buoyed by the vulnerability the
defending champions showed ahead
of the second leg on Tuesday.
“We created a series of really good
chances and just didn’t take them,” he
said. “We are not giving up. There are
still 90 minutes to go.”
Asensio’s 57th-minute strike was a
feather in the cap for Zidane, who
brought Asensio on at half-time and
got one over Heynckes, the man who
led Real to the trophy in 1998 after
victory over a his Juventus side.
Inside the first five minutes
Bayern wasted a great chance when
Muller sliced a volley in front of goal
then lost winger Arjen Robben to
injury.
They were unperturbed and
opened the scoring in the 28th
minute when Joshua Kimmich
finished off a team move that started
with keeper Sven Ulreich and ended
when he sent Keylor Navas the
wrong way with a clever finish.
Bayern should have gone into the

break two or three goals ahead after
Mats Hummels volleyed over and
Muller missed two more chances.
But Real levelled when Marcelo hit
a sweet shot on the bounce from the
edge of the area low past Ulreich
after a cross from Dani Carvajal.
And Zidane’s men took the lead
when Rafinha gave the ball away to
Asensio and he exchanged passes
with Lucas Vazquez before finishing
high over Ulreich’s shoulder.
Cristiano Ronaldo failed to score
for the first time in a European game
this season, coming closest when he
had a ‘goal’ ruled out for handball.
Zidane knows there is work still to
do to seal their spot in the final.
“We’re very satisfied with the result,
but we had a lot of problems in the
first few minutes trying to take
control of the game,” he said.
“The tie is far from over. It’s more
than possible that Bayern could win
in the Bernabeu.”

IT IS a sign of the rate
of progress of Mohamed
Salah
that
now
the
argument is not whether
he is the best player in
England – but the world.
For all the undoubted qualities
of Kevin De Bruyne, looking back
on Salah’s stunning Champions
League performance in Tuesday’s
5-2 win against Roma, it is hard
to imagine his coronation by the
PFA in London last Sunday was
ever in doubt.
With that trophy only just in
the cabinet at home, the
Egyptian
striker
has
now
been challenged to go one better
and break the stranglehold of
Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel
Messi on the global stage.
Bookmakers are already running
scared, installing him
as joint favourite at
7-4 with Portuguese
star Ronaldo to lift a
Ballon d’Or trophy
untouched by anyone
other than those two
in the past 10 years.
Liverpool
legend
Steven Gerrard kick-started the
debate in the aftermath of
Tuesday’s rip-roaring evening,
insisting Salah was operating
on the highest plane possible.
“Without a shadow of a doubt
he is the best player on the planet
right now,” said Gerrard.
Yet for all Gerrard’s hyperbole,
is it realistic that Salah could
usurp Ronaldo and Messi?
His manager Jurgen Klopp
sounded a note of caution
insisting that if Salah is to be
bracketed alongside that pair he
has to back up his performances
year on year.
Ronaldo is on course for his
eighth straight season with over
50 goals for club and country
while Messi has scored over a
half century for Barcelona and
Argentina in five of his past
seven seasons, and will make it
six from eight barring injury.
Salah’s 44 from 49 games for
Liverpool
and
Egypt
is
impressive but this is the first
season he has reached this level.
Salah’s
team-mates
at
Liverpool, where he has found
the perfect stylistic canvas for
his talents, expressed their
confidence that talk of the
Egyptian becoming the first
winner outside the big two since
Kaka in 2007 was far from
fanciful.
Dejan Lovren and Trent
Alexander-Arnold
have
the
dubious pleasure of facing Salah
in training every day at Melwood
and the latter said he knew how
Roma’s defenders felt at the end
of a contest that was a mismatch.
“During the week it’s
a nightmare because
you’re up against
him,” said AlexanderArnold.
“Sometimes I don’t
really
like
him
because he does that
stuff to me! That’s
what he does – day in, day out.
It’s just become second nature to
him now and it’s a credit to him.
“But we’re really happy to be
playing with him rather than
against him. You know during
the week you’re preparing well
for the opposition and you know
this is the level you’re going to be
up against, if not higher. It’s good
preparation going into games.”
Lovren planted his own flag
firmly in the Gerrard camp and
has few doubts that by early
December, when the votes are
being counted ahead of the
Ballon d’Or ceremony, Salah’s
name will be on plenty of them.
Asked whether the striker was
becoming a superstar, Lovren
said: “Yes, he is becoming the
superstar. It looks easy what he
does but it is very difficult. Maybe
This style
of play helps
him a lot
I couldn’t look into the
future in pre-season
and think he could do
this, but how he is
working and how he
wants the ball, he is just
a different player.
“We help him, the
manager helps and
this style of play helps
a lot. He didn’t play
that style before
Basle, Chelsea or
Roma, they had
different styles and
this style suits him
perfectly.”
Salah was far
from prolific at
Basle, Chelsea or
Fiorentina but was
beginning to influence
Roma in the same way in two
seasons there before Liverpool
prised him away for £37million
(with around £6m in add-ons).
Yet it is in Klopp’s three-man
strike force that he has flowered,
drifting in from the right and
playing in the channel between
left-back and centre-half. His low
centre of gravity and quick feet
are reminiscent of Messi.
“If he continues like that – I
don’t know if this is the right time
to put pressure on him – but I
believe he should be regarded as
one of the best three in the world
at the end of the year,” said
Lovren. “He deserves to be
mentioned for the Ballon d’Or –
when people talk about Messi
and Ronaldo, they should also
talk about Salah.”
Salah will play for Egypt at the
World Cup, having secured their
place for the first time since 1990
with a nerve-shredding 95thminute penalty against Gabon.
By then, he could have helped
Liverpool to Champions League
glory, perhaps against Ronaldo’s
Real Madrid. With a World Cup
to follow, it would be a brave man
who would back against him.

Milner not likely
to assist England
JAMES MILNER has told
friends he would not reverse his
decision and come out of
international retirement even if
Gareth Southgate asked.
But the Liverpool midfielder
would be the first name on the
teamsheet if he did according to
Kop legend Graeme Souness.
Milner has been outstanding for
his club in both Premier League
and Champions League and broke
the record for most assists in the
latter competition with his ninth
on Tuesday night when his
corner was headed in by
Roberto Firmino to make it 5-0.
It topped the previous record
for a single campaign shared by
Neymar and Wayne Rooney.
“I’d have him in the England
side in a heartbeat,” said
Souness. “You watch him and
he’s got better and better and
right now his energy levels are
higher than when he was 21.
“He looks after himself and
he trains properly and he is a
really solid human being.
“He’s developed into a bit of
a rascal. He leaves his foot in
and says, ‘Oh sorry, didn’t
mean that,’ but he does.
Every team needs a bit of
that.”
Milner made the last of
his 61 England appearances
at Euro 2016. Southgate
could be tempted to pick up
the phone given the injury to
By Gideon Brooks
Liverpool team-mate Alex
Oxlade-Chamberlain that
has ruled him out of
participation in England’s
campaign in Russia.
But right-back Trent
Alexander-Arnold, who is
making a late burst to make
the England squad for the
World Cup, suggested that
Milner remains unlikely to
answer an emergency call.
“I think he’s just focused on his
club football and working hard for
the team,” he said.
Milner, 32, said Liverpool were
disappointed in the dressing room
after Tuesday’s win because of
a combination of the injury to
Oxlade-Chamberlain and leaking
two late goals.
But he maintained they were
confident they could finish the job
in Rome next week.
“You can’t let a good team like
Roma have time on the ball.
There’s plenty of positives as well
so we have to look at that side,”
said Milner.
“There’s not too many times
where you win a Champions
League semi-final 5-2 and come
off disappointed, but we’ve
managed to do that and hopefully
that fuels us for the next leg.”

semi-final first-leg victory
over Roma on Tuesday.
He had a scan on his
right knee yesterday that
revealed ligament damage,
then called national team
manager Gareth Southgate
to tell him the bad news.
Oxlade-Chamberlain
wrote in a Twitter post:
“Absolutely devastated to
have picked up that injury
at such a crucial time in
the season.
“Gutted I won’t be able
to play any further part in
our Champions League run
for Liverpool and also the
World Cup with England.”
Liverpool are not putting
a timeframe on how long
he is likely to be out.
“Liverpool FC can
confirm Alex OxladeChamberlain’s 2017-18
season is over for club
and country due to a knee
ligament injury sustained
against AS Roma on
Tuesday evening,” said the
club in a statement.
“The 24-year-old was
assessed by the club’s
medical team at Melwood
on Wednesday and no
specific timescale is being
placed upon his return.
“However, OxladeChamberlain will now
begin a rehabilitation
programme to enable
him to reach full
fitness again as soon
as possible, returning
to action next season.”
The injury put a
dampener on a thrilling
Champions League win at
Anfield with boss Jurgen
Klopp saying after the
match: “The biggest blow
for the mood is the injury
of Chamberlain because
we lost a fantastic player.”
Oxlade-Chamberlain paid
tribute to the Liverpool fan
whose condition has been
described as critical after
being attacked by Roma
fans outside Anfield just
before the first leg.
“This all pales in
comparison to how the
family of the Liverpool fan
badly hurt before last
night’s game must be
feeling,” he added. “My
thoughts are with him and
his loved ones.”

Wenger: No rift

I wish to make it

Tennis ‘tsunami’
of match-fixing
TENNIS is engulfed in
a “tsunami” of matchfixing at lower levels
according to a report
into betting-related
corruption in the sport.
The Independent
Review of Integrity in
Tennis was set up in
2016 following claims
that leading players –
including Grand Slam
title winners – were
involved in matchfixing, and that
evidence had been
suppressed.
More than two years
later the review panel
has finally published
its interim report and
says that tennis faces
a “serious integrity
problem”, particularly

at the lower levels of
the sport where
players struggle to
earn a living, especially
on the men’s circuits.
The panel also
found “evidence of
some issues” at Grand
Slam and Tour events
but did not uncover
evidence of a
widespread problem
at those higher levels.
The report found no
evidence of top players
implicated but did
claim ‘tanking’, when
players seem to give
up in matches, which
