after giving birth.
The Duchess of Cambridge wore
a loose-fitting, knee-length dress

It was a bespoke number from

perfect alongside Wills
in head-to-toe blue.
It was seen as a
tribute to Princess

The beaming couple posed
with their 8lb 7oz son as
they left the Lindo Wing of
St Mary?s Hospital in West
London at 5.56pm.
Born bang on his due date of
St George?s Day, Kate, 36, was in
labour for five-and-half hours
before he arrived at 11.01am.
As Prince William carried his
new baby son into the car, he
joked that having three kids
was ?Thrice worry now!?.
He also revealed big brother
George, four, and sister Charlotte, two, were ?very happy

Asked about the name, he
said: ?You?ll find out soon.?
And in a reference to Kate

looked amazing on the steps of
the Lindo Wing seven hours later.
Wearing a red bespoke Jenny

the Queen, she smiled warmly as
she carried her new son.
He was wrapped up against the
chilly wind, in a new bonnet and
a � Nottingham lace shawl
gifted from GH Hurt & Son, who
also provided George and Charlotte?s shawls.
Smiling and waving to
the crowd, Wills spot-

Edwards with a ?There?s Arthur!?
to his wife.
After a couple of minutes he
whispered to her: ?Shall we go
in?? Kate agreed, saying, ?Yes, it?s
a little cold?, as she gently
stroked her baby?s head.
He was oblivious, fast asleep as
the world?s media took pictures,
but stirred in the cold wind. The
crowd cheered as the couple
waved in all directions, even to
people hanging out of upstairs
windows in the wards opposite.
The couple went back in for
just a minute to put him in the
car seat. Then William carried
him back out and popped him in
the back of his Range Rover. In
Salute . . Wills. Above, growing family
the back seat, Kate
did up his seat belt
and held his hand.
She was in and out
of hospital within the
day, having gone into labour in the early hours of
yesterday morning. After a
couple of hours at home at
Kensington Palace, where a full
medical team were on standby to
help, Kate was escorted into the
private hospital at 5.30am yesterday morning.
She and Wills were driven to a
back entrance at the Imperial
College Medical School where the
Duchess was smuggled into the
Lindo Wing via a specially
painted tunnel.
Present at the baby?s birth were
the
Queen?s
surgeons
Guy
Thorpe-Beeston and Alan Farthing, Dr Sunit Godambe, consultant neonatologist at Imperial
College and the Queen?s physician
Professor Huw Thomas.
A formal announcement of his
birth was posted on the Royal
Easel on the forecourt of Buckingham Palace at 2.30pm yesterday. At 8lb 7oz, he?s the heaviest
of the three. George was 8lbs 6oz,
Charlotte 8lb 3oz.
William popped back to Kensington Palace to pick up George
and Charlotte. They spent about
25 minutes meeting their baby
brother before leaving via a
private entrance.
Nanny Maria Borrallo was seen
taking them both home. William
was clearly delighted with his
new family, holding up a three
sign with his fingers as he left.

St George?s Day Prince
Ain?t he
heavy..
he?s my
brother
BY EMILY ANDREWS
and DAN SALES
CHEEKY Princess Charlotte waved and smiled at
wellwishers yesterday as
she and Prince George
arrived to meet their new
brother ? the heaviest
ever son of a Royal heir.
The newborn prince weighed
in at 8lb 7oz ? one ounce
heavier than brother George
and two more than Charlotte.
And he is bigger than any child
of any monarch past or present.
Prince William had told those
gathered outside St Mary?s hospital he would be ?back in a
minute? as he left to collect
his two other children.
After returning in his
Land Rover, the heir first
unbuckled
four-year-old
George, who was still in
his
school
uniform,
before walking in handin-hand with him and
Charlotte, two.
The young princess
then prompted a collective ?aah? from the
waiting crowd as she
offered a wave.
She
then
walked
confidently with her
dad and brother to
the wooden doors of
the
hospital,
before
looking over her shoulder and waving again
with a smile.
The heaviest Royal
baby of the last 100
years
is
Savannah
Phillips ? daughter of
Princess Anne?s son Peter
? who weighed 8lb 8oz
when she was born in
December 2010.
But
the
new
Prince
Cambridge,
who
becomes
fifth in line to the throne, is the
heaviest child born to a future
monarch.
?Mother and baby are
both doing well?
Prince Charles was 7lb 6oz when
he was born in 1948 and William
arrived at 7lb 1.5oz in 1982.
The weight of the Queen, who
was delivered by caesarean section
in 1926, was not announced in line
with the custom at the time.
The average weight of a baby in
the UK is 7lb 7oz. And subsequent
babies are usually heavier than
first-borns by around 5oz.
George and Charlotte?s trip to
meet their new sibling came at
the end of a busy and momentous
day for the Cambridges.
The Duchess was driven to the
Lindo Wing of St Mary?s alongside
her husband at 5.30am. Nearly
three hours later Kensington Palace confirmed she had been
admitted in the early stages of
labour.
The
baby
arrived
at
11.01am with the news and weight
confirmed two hours later.
And at 2.30pm, footman Heather
McDonald and senior footman
Olivia Smith placed a notice on a
golden easel at Buckingham Palace. It read: ?Her Royal Highness
the Duchess of Cambridge was
safely delivered of a son at
11.01am today.
?Her Royal Highness and her
child are both doing well.?
Prince William left the hospital
at around 4.15pm and returned
half an hour later with George
and Charlotte.
It wasn?t until 5.52pm that the
world got a first glimpse of
the new prince. Wearing a
red Jenny Packham dress,
Kate emerged cradling the
newborn in a GH Hurt
and Son shawl.
The royals then left the
hospital five minutes later
with William driving them
home to Kensington Palace. As he left, the
Duke announced that
he was ?very happy,
very delighted?. And
Weighty . . . Savannah
GEORGE &
BABY IS RECORD 8lb 7oz
he joked: ?Thrice the worry now.?
Body
language
expert
Judi
James said the new arrival may
have a more profound effect on
the couple than expected.
She added: ?William was
leaping down the steps to
collect the small siblings
with his arms swinging like
pendulums to suggest the
look of a jaunty, confident
dad-of-three.
?But when he emerged
from the doors again
with Kate and the new
baby,
his
gestures
hinted that he might
have been a little
more subdued.
?The
Duke
and
Duchess?
touch
seemed more openly loving and
intimate
than
usual.
William
gently rubbed Kate?s back as they
stood together on the steps.
?And when they walked to the
car, he carried the baby in its carrier in his left hand so he could
hold Kate?s hand with entwined
fingers, suggesting a very deep
level of affection and empathy.?
But she suggests William?s pose
on the stairs when they first
emerged was the most telling.
Judi added: ?He stood slightly
away from his wife with his hands
clasped across his lower torso in
the ?fig leaf? pose. This is a
strongly self-protective barrier gesture that could signal three babies
are enough for the royal couple.?

FLAGS FLY HIGH
BRITISH flags will be flown at
full mast from all Government
buildings for 12 hours today to
celebrate the royal birth.
They will be hoisted at 8am
and stay up until 8pm, the
Department for Digital, Culture,
Media and Sport said.
The Lion Rampant flag will
also be flown on the Edinburgh
HQ of the government in Scotland, where William and Kate
are known as The Earl and
Countess of Strathearn. Meanwhile, Theresa May led the tributes from politicans, tweeting to
wish the royal couple ?great
happiness for the future?.
Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson offered ?huge congratulations?, while Jeremy Corbyn, a
republican, struck a familiar
tone as he said: ?Congratulations to Kate and William on
the birth of their baby boy. I
wish them all the very best.?

Residents in Bucklebury, Berks, where her

ROYAL
WEIGH-IN
THE new baby weighs in at
8lbs 7oz ? here?s how

8lb 8oz Savannah Phillips;
8lb 6oz Prince George;

FROM the moment he was
born Prince William was
destined to one day rule
as King.
But now he?s a dad-ofthree and I?m here to tell
him that until Coronation
Day, he?s not going to rule
over anything.
I know this because I?m
a father of three ? Eddie,

and
Annie, seven.
I can safely say that,
rather than ruling the
roost, in my less-thanRoyal household I am
barely tolerated.
Future
monarch
you
may be, William. But your
immediate future as soon
as you strap your precious
bundle into the Range
Rover is little more than a
glorified handyman.
I have become like that
nameless guy you see running around on official
visits, frantically opening
car doors and carrying
armfuls of stuff while trying not to get in the way.
And as the years have
rolled on I?m pretty much
there for IT support.
If the iPad isn?t charged:
?Dad!? If the wifi is down:

Three kids are exhausting, time-consuming and,

Come the day of William?s coronation, believe

delighted if it was a middle

betting went from 14-1 to just

a royal flood of bets on Arthur,

William and Kate have previously waited a couple of days

favourites last night included

Kate seem to favour.

her baby home last night.
Just as when Prince
George
and
Princess
Charlotte
were
born,
somebody seems in the
know on names. In 2015
the bookies stopped taking bets on Charlotte.
One lady in Cheltenham
? not far from Prince
Charles?s Gloucestershire
home ? placed a �000
bet on the little prince
being called Arthur.
I?m keeping everything
crossed that William and
Kate will name their
nipper after yours truly!
As the couple came out
on to the same steps
where I?d photographed
both William and Harry
as babies, Wills saw me,
pointed over, and said to
a smiling Kate: ?There?s
Arthur, look there!?
Catherine didn?t let us
down. She looked amazing in her beautiful red
and white dress ? perfect
for St George?s Day.
You
wouldn?t
think
she?d just had a baby,
she looked a million dollars and, as ever, so
proud of her little boy.
Earlier when I watched
George and Charlotte in
school uniforms going in
to see their brother for
the first time, it seemed
two minutes since I photographed them as babies
from the same spot.
This is the eighth royal

monarch in 103 years, overtook
his elder sister Princess Anne
to be second in line to the
throne after Prince Charles.
He should have been a promising
little boy and indeed he was. But
after a distinguished career in the
Royal Navy, serving with distinction
in the Falklands War, his life went
off track and he appeared to have
little purpose.
Sandwiched between a bright
and articulate sister and a brother
who was heir to the throne, he
searched for a role.
A failed marriage and a failed
career as a special envoy for overseas trade did little to help him
and the question on the lips of his
parents and the royal household
was ? what are we to do with
Andrew?
It is hoped that the latest arrival
for the Duke and Duchess of
Cambridge will not fall into the
third child trap.
By the time couples have had
their third child, they are far more
attuned to parenthood.
They worry less,
pay less attention
to minor ailments
and generally allow
the child to grow
at its own pace
without
pressure,
rather than fussing
about every milestone.
But there is a
danger of allowing
too much leeway.
Third
children
are generally more
attention
seeking,
as was the case
with
Andrew,
naughtier
because
they can get away
with it, as was the
case with Andrew,
and just a little
spoilt, as was the
case with Andrew.
He would kick
the corgis, tease the
guardsmen outside
Buckingham Palace
and make chaos in
the nursery ? just
because he could.
Palace
staff
regarded him as an
unholy
nuisance.
He had an arrogant
disregard for them
and no effort by
his nanny Mabel
could modify his
attitude.
He
used
to
thump the footmen
from behind with a
clenched fist and run along the
corridor shouting, ?Get me!? He
took a little more notice of his
mother, who would slap him
around the back of his legs, reducing him to tears and yells of hurt
pride.
Andrew was also charming and
could make everyone laugh and,
despite his difficult temperament,
was able to lord it as second in
line until the birth of Prince William in 1982.
He had enjoyed his status for
many years and just after his 21st
birthday he was pushed down to
third in line.
Two years later with the birth of
Prince Harry, he was fourth in line.
It would be unfair to judge the
Duke and Duchess of Cambridge?s
new-born boy by the life of Prince
Andrew, but the dangers of the
third child syndrome are all too
obvious to see.
Of course, Catherine does not
have the responsibility of being
Queen but she does have a busy
life and has to a certain extent to
rely on other people to help bring
up her three children.
Soon the new baby Cambridge
will be surrounded by reminders of
who he is.
Crowds will cheer him, he will
have his photograph on the front of

every paper and he will always be
privileged.
A protection officer will accompany him everywhere and it will
take all the Duchess?s mothering
skills to keep his little feet on the
ground.
He will also be the first male
child born to an heir to the throne
not to push his sister out of second
place, since the rules of inheritance
have been changed.
The world is different to when
Prince Andrew was growing up
and hopefully the new royal will
have a more defined path to follow
and will therefore be able to overcome any difficulties his privileged
birth might bring him.
If he is strong like his mother
and determined like his father,
he will be able to judge the
world for what it is and
realise to get on he has to
just fit in, which I am
certain he will.

CUSTOMS UNION SHOWDOWN

PM urged to confront pro-EU rebels on vote
THERESA May should confront pro-EU Brexit rebels

she will duck a showdown

EU. But clearly they won?t do that
as long as they think Parliament
will vote for a customs union.?
Former Tory leader Iain Duncan
Smith also said Mrs May should
not fear calling on the Government to vote. He said: ?When they
do I am sure they?ll win it.?
Meanwhile, it was claimed that
some senior Tory Cabinet ministers
are drawing up a ?customs union
in all but name? in an attempt to
force an end to the split.
But Downing Street said: ?Mrs
May is very clear that we are
leaving the customs union and that
we will have the freedom to strike
our own trade deals.?
The EU?s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier said it was
?up to the UK to come up
with its vision? after Brussels
rejected Mrs May?s initial
trade proposal last week.
He added: ?We have done
our share of the work.?

The PM will tell ministers
to stay away from a backbench debate on Thursday

It is one of a series of impending

THE
SAYS
Rebel rabble
IT is time for the truth from Tory rebels
threatening to destroy Brexit, and with it
their Prime Minister and Government.
They cannot credibly claim we can
leave the EU, fulfilling the referendum
verdict, while staying in a customs union
that lets Brussels bind our hands for ever.
Even millions of sensible Remainers
know it is both nonsensical and suicidal.
Given the rosy economic news currently making a nonsense of every
Project Fear scare, MPs such as Nicky
Morgan and Anna Soubry must realise
that almost no one still believes they are
trying to save us from driving off a cliff.
It is obvious their customs union campaign and the confected Irish border
issue are a ruse co-ordinated with Brussels and Remainer peers to neuter and
negate Brexit. They should come clean.
And Theresa May must ask them, face
to face, if they really wish to gift Corbyn?s Marxist clowns a chance of power
solely to impose the Remainers? will on
a nation that voted the other way and
would do so again in greater numbers.
Mrs May has another task too. A world
of opportunity awaits us outside the customs union, not least lower shop prices.
It is high time she made the case for it
? and let her ministers do the same.
A new bribe
LABOUR?S cynicism is off the scale ?
much like the mass of violent trolls, Putinbacking conspiracy-theory lunatics and
Jew-hating bigots now rotting it from within.
Corbyn?s cult loathe Britain, and
England in particular. They detest our
history, traditions and people. They
sneer at the St George flag, as Emily
Thornberry did so infamously.
But now, seeing their poll numbers
falling, they pledge a St George?s Day
holiday if they win power. It?s clinching
proof that they think voters are morons.
Because a Corbyn Government would be
infinitely more likely to commemorate an
IRA massacre than England?s patron saint.
End secrets
HE was scapegoated over the John
Worboys fiasco, but fired parole board
chief Nick Hardwick at least seems to
understand how to fix the problem.
We welcome him backing The Sun?s
case for full transparency on all future
rulings ? including the evidence, the
reasoning behind any decision and the
identities of parole panel members.
These hearings, crucial to open justice
and public safety, must not be covered up
by Whitehall?s archaic fetish for secrecy.
Are you listening, Justice Secretary?

I CROSS the EU?s border with Switzerland every month. Not that I?d
notice if I didn?t know it was there.
Most of the crossings between the EU
and its neighbour are unmanned. Some
are invisible.
It is true there are booths in places,
but these are mainly concerned with
ensuring foreign vehicles have purchased
Swiss road discs. The customs posts date
from a time when exporters couldn?t file
their declarations online.
The Swiss border is crossed by around
2.4million people every day ? a colossal
figure for a country with a population of
just 8.4million.
And 440,000 Swiss citizens live in the
EU ? a much higher proportion than the
1.2million Brits who do so.
Switzerland also manages to sell more
than five times as much per head to the
EU as Britain does.
But here is the thing. Switzerland is
outside the EU?s customs union ? and
almost no one there wants to join it.
Switzerland is the answer to those who
say the customs union is the best way of
preventing an intrusive border in Ireland.
Or rather, it is half the answer. The
other half is Turkey.
Turkey is the only country, apart from
microstates like Monaco, that is in the
customs union while remaining outside
the EU. Yet its frontier is far more
heavily policed than the Swiss one.
In other words, being in the customs
union does not make borders vanish.
But if we are looking to make the
frontier as unobtrusive as possible,
Switzerland is the best place to start. Its
free-movement
agreement
with
its
neighbours is similar to the one that
exists between the UK and Ireland.
Indeed, things should be easier in
Ireland. Every day, 23,000 lorries carry
a million euros? worth of goods across
the Swiss-EU border. By contrast, more
than 90 per cent of trade between the
UK and Ireland is East-West rather than
North-South.
Of course, the way to avoid checks in
Ireland is to have a comprehensive trade
agreement between Britain and the EU
that provides for mutual recognition. This
is what Theresa May has been after from
the beginning.
So why are Europhiles here working
By DANIEL
HANNAN
with Brussels to turn Ireland into an
obstacle to such a deal?
Surely both Remainers and Leavers
should want the fullest trade deal
possible with our neighbours?
There are different motives at work,
some of them ugly. Eurocrats evidently
believe that if Brexit is made hard
enough, we will somehow drop the whole
idea. Failing that, they want to keep us
locked into their trade arrangements
because, as the BBC?s Katya Adler put it,
they are ?terrified? of having a ?supercompetitive country? next door.
Some Remainers in Parliament intend to
reverse the referendum. ?Look,? they aim
to say, ?the trade deal Leavers promised
isn?t on offer. It?s time to think again.?
Tossing a burger in bin
and eating the napkin
Of course, it is their own behaviour
making Brussels hang back. Why sign a
comprehensive
free-trade
agreement
when the British Parliament might give
them something far better ? permanent
British subjugation to EU rules?
Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson is
reported to have said privately that
unless we leave the customs union and
recover our right to make independent
trade deals, Brexit isn?t worth doing.
He is dead right. Some people see
staying in the customs union as a kind
of halfway house. If that were true, it
might make sense.
The vote, after all, was a narrow one.
We should be looking for compromises ?
remaining in some EU programmes,
allowing EU nationals to take up job
offers, maybe rejoining the European
Free Trade Association.
But staying in the customs union is not
a compromise, like eating a mediumcooked burger when half the country
wanted it well-done and the other half
wanted it rare. It is more like tossing the
burger into a bin and eating the napkin.
As Lord Hill, our staunchly Remain
former European Commissioner, points
out, it would mean letting Brussels
dictate our trade deals with non-EU
countries without any say over those
deals. In fact, it is worse even than that.
If the EU agreed a trade deal with, say,
the US, Britain would have to match
whatever steps the EU 27 took ? but the
US would not be required to reciprocate.
Labour knows this perfectly well. As its
trade spokesman Barry Gardiner put it:
?The EU could do a deal with another
country ? let?s say America ? which we
would be bound by in the UK. We would
have to accept the liberalisation of our
markets. Why would America give us
that access when it?s got all the
liberalisation of our markets it wants??
Quite so, Barry.
He said that, of course, before Labour
saw an opportunity to embarrass the
Government ? or even trigger an early
election ? by switching its position.
He now wants to keep an arrangement
Jeremy Corbyn opposed as recently as
January on the impeccable socialist
grounds that the customs union ?is protectionist against developing countries?.
Indeed, Labour is bizarrely backing the
one aspect of the EU it disliked all
along, going right back to the 1950s. It
wants to keep in place tariffs that not
only harm many poor countries but also
drive up the cost of food, clothing and
footwear here, so hitting the low-income
families Labour claims to champion.
No other neighbouring country would
accept such terms. Not the Swiss nor the
Norwegians nor the Serbs nor the
Albanians. Even Turkey?s membership of
the customs union is only partial and
was intended as a stepping stone to full
membership.
Ankara has been moaning about how it
works for 20 years ? and with justice.
Labour, along with the Lib Dems, the
SNP and some Tory rebels, is demanding
a worse deal than any other country
bordering the EU. We can?t blame
eurocrats for taking advantage of our
weakness. We should blame the British
MPs and peers creating it.
They have every right to try to soften
Brexit. Instead, they are backing what
they know to be a dud outcome in the
hope of overturning the people?s vote.

A BRITISH woman has

She managed to call
her family by secretly
using a mobile phone.
They

The signal was traced
to an isolated house in

The woman, who was
living

met a man on Facebook
from Mali called Mamadou Jallow.
He convinced her to
visit his friends in Italy.
But when there he
bundled her into a room

attacked for two weeks.
Her bank account was
also cleared out.

JUST one in seven women eligible to

?PATHETIC, my dear Watson.?
It could have been a typically
acerbic line delivered by the
razor sharp-witted Sherlock
Holmes.
But the bitchy slapdown was
instead from the mouth of the man
who plays the Baker Street super
sleuth, Benedict Cumberbatch.
And the target was not quite Watson,
but the actor behind the crime-fighting
sidekick, Martin Freeman.
Benedict stunned fans last weekend by
labelling Martin ?pathetic? for moaning
about the attention he receives from their
hit show?s hardcore following.
For many in showbiz, the very public
barb has finally lifted the lid on one of
its most toxic feuds ? a simmering row
that now threatens the return of cult

?It takes on its own thing. But that
happens with every franchise or entity

?It?s pretty pathetic if that?s all it takes

Cue a chorus of gasps from luvvieland.
Could it be, they asked, that the cat was
finally out of the bag?
The war of egos between the two Brit
stars has threatened to boil over since

For months fans thought Martin would be

Benedict may have given away the animosity at the time when he laughed off

Now that internet chatter is more

?CURE? FOR 1 IN 5 SUFFERERS
PMS BOOZE HOPE
A FIFTH of premenstrual
syndrome sufferers might be
cured if they quit the booze.
Tension . .
PMS leads
to
irritability
Nearly one in ten cases could be
prevented if heavy drinkers cut
down to one glass of beer, wine
or spirits a day, a study suggests
One in five sufferers could stop their
symptoms by giving up alcohol completely, it is thought. Researcher Profes-
By SHAUN WOOLLER
sor Hazel Inskip, who worked on the
study at the University of Southampton,
said: ?Women who suffer from PMS
may wish to consider cutting out alcohol to see if it makes a difference.?
PMS, which affects about four in ten
women, leads to mood swings, fatigue
and food cravings.
They often occur in the one to two
weeks before a woman has her period.
It is not known exactly what causes
PMS but alcohol is thought to exaggerate its effects by altering levels of sex
hormones.
The researchers, also including a
team from Spain, analysed 19 studies.
One drink a day was linked to the
risk of suffering from PMS rising by 79
per cent. But it was not clear whether
the link was because sufferers drink to
cope with symptoms.

?Let down? . . . Natalie
Mum dies

A MUM of six sent home
from one hospital on a
walking stick died two
days later when doctors
finally diagnosed sepsis.

her foot and flu-like
symptoms but was discharged from Sandwell

She went to Russells
Hall Hospital, Dudley, the

next day but it was still
another day before docs
spotted the infection.
Surgeons amputated her
foot, her lower leg and
finally, the whole leg to
stop the sepsis spreading.
But it was too late and,
hours later, Natalie, whose
kids are aged ten months
to eight, was dead.

Zero jobs

THE number of zerohours contracts in the
UK has increased to
1.8million over the past 12

It is a 100,000 increase
on the previous year?s
figure and means six per
cent of all work contracts
are zero hour agreements, the Office for National Statistics said.
The ONS has previously
reported
that
901,000
Brits are on the deals,
which mean bosses do
not have to offer a minimum number of hours.
It is claimed one in 12
young people are on the
contracts. The TUC?s Frances O?Grady said: ?Most
people are not on zerohours by choice. They

The rises, averaging 52

FAMILY . . . in
1990 with wife
Primrose
HAUNTED
. . . retired
detective
George
McKeating
And even after they found out
that their beloved Dr Harold
Shipman was Britain?s worst
serial killer, responsible for the
murders of 265 patients ? some
keep on singing his praises.
Incredulous former detective
constable Dave O?Brien, who was
on the team that brought the
fiend to justice, told The Sun:
?Older people in the community
still love him. They still think the
world of him.
?The fact that he murdered
people just seems to go over
their heads.?
By the time he started killing
in Todmorden, West Yorks, in
March 1975, Shipman already had
a raging drug addiction.
The Sun can reveal that he
was sometimes so desperate for a
high he would inject his penis
with a form of heroin.
But soon his overriding craving
was for cold-blooded murder.
He systematically groomed the
community, winning its trust, to
get away with killing his prey ?
often
elderly
and
vulnerable
patients ? with lethal injections.
Now, 20 years since his arrest,
the police who brought down ?Dr
Death? have spoken out for the
first time.
?He thought he was
smarter than cops?
In a new ITV documentary
screening on Thursday, Dave
O?Brien, now 77, recalls: ?I had
never worked on anything like
that case in my life.
?I had worked on lots and lots
of murders but nothing like
Shipman had ever happened. It
was massive.
?People
in
the
community
didn?t believe it. They thought
we?d got it all wrong and that
there would be an explanation
somewhere along the line.
?They thought the world of
him, that he was God?s gift. He
obviously
believed
he
was
invincible. He was an arrogant
bastard, without a doubt.
?People to this day still think
he was the best doctor ever.?
Talking to The Sun ahead of
the documentary, Dave, of Stalybridge,
Greater
Manchester,
added: ?When all the evidence
started
coming
out
people
refused to believe it, and even
when he was convicted people
would still fight his corner. We
were incredulous, the team and I.
?He was in prison and people
were still singing his praises. I
thought, ?How stupid can you
be???
?When people start talking like
that I just have to walk away.?
Shipman was arrested in September 1998, aged 52. In January
2000 he was convicted of the
murder of 15 elderly patients and
sentenced to 15 life sentences.
A public inquiry launched a
year later found that the former
family doctor had really killed up
to 265 patients over 23 years.
In January 2004, aged 57, Shipman hanged himself in prison.
Shockingly, there had been a
chance to strike him off the
medical register in 1975, the year
of his first murder, of former
cotton weaver Eva Lyons,
on the eve of her 71st
birthday.
That was the year he
was busted for writing
out fake prescriptions
to fuel his addiction
to opiates.

McKeating told The Sun: ?I was
in the drug squad in 1975 and
part of my brief there was to
look after the discipline of people
in the medical profession, chemists and doctors etc.
?Shipman was picking up prescriptions for pethidine, a synthetic morphine. The main use of
it these days is for pregnant
women who are in severe pain.?
George discovered the GP had
been collecting prescriptions for
the heroin-like drug each week
from all the chemists in town.
He continued: ?The patients
weren?t getting injections for
pethidine, they didn?t even know
what it was.? Th

amazed when
Shipman candidly admitted the
extent of his drug problem. The
former cop explained: ?He had a
huge ego and got more confident
and cocky the more we talked to
him. I let him rave on.
?He was persuasive
and manipulative?
?He admitted the drugs were
for his own use and made up
some feeble excuse about being
overworked. He had track marks
up his arms.
?He said he tried morphine but
he didn?t like it.
?Pethidine is a synthetic opiate.
It?s a strange thing. I got it once
myself when I got my tonsils out
aged 35.
?It?s a good painkiller. I just
floated away in a cloud for half a
day. So I know what it?s like.
?He was doing this stuff on a
daily basis. So much so that the
veins
on
his
arms
were
collapsing and he had to find
another place to inject ? so he
injected it into his penis.
?It makes my eyes water just
thinking about it.?
In February 1976 Shipman was
convicted of obtaining pethidine
by forgery and deception to supply. But he got away with a slap
on the wrist and a fine from the
court. However, he still had to
appear
before
the
General
Medical Council (GMC), the regulatory body for doctors.
George, who had dealt with
drug-addicted docs before, was
convinced he would be struck off
and banned from medicine.
But the retiree said: ?The
chairman decided he wasn?t a
danger to the public and didn?t
strike him off.
?I was gobsmacked. How could
a junkie deal with patients
properly?
?He wasn?t fit to practise. If I
asked you whether you?d be
happy to be treated by a doctor
who was a heroin addict you?d
say definitely not. Pethidine is
the same as heroin.?
Shipman was soon back in
business, moving wife Primrose
and their four children to Hyde,
Greater Manchester, where he
went on killing for two decades.
George
believes
Shipman
conned the GMC just like he
conned
the
communities
he
worked in.
He explained: ?He was careful
about what he said. He was a
good speaker, persuasive and
manipulative.
?The community thought the
MURDERED . . . Irene
?HE WAS
LIKE A
FRIEND?
WIDOW Irene Berry felt so
lucky to have Harold
Shipman as a doctor that
when she took a trip to
France, she brought him
back a bottle of wine.
He repaid her with a
lethal injection.
She was a fit, active and
happy 73-year-old, who
had only called him for
that final fatal home visit
to treat a case of shingles.
Daughter Jean told The
Sun: ?My mum thought he
was wonderful. She said
he was very personable
and would go round to
see people in person,
especially the old people.
?She could always get
an appointment.
?Just to illustrate it she
came over to France with
me on holiday and she
took him a bottle of wine
back. She almost
considered him a friend.?
Yet when her mother
suddenly died in February
1998, Jean, 65 ? who
asked us not to use her
surname ? was
immediately suspicious.
She said: ?I knew he
hadn?t treated her
properly right away. She
was really healthy.?
Months later, Shipman
was arrested.
Jean said: ?It seemed
unreal. It still does
sometimes. I thought,
?What a waste?.
?She was
seven years
younger than
my dad and she
looked after him
for a long time,
so her life was
very restricted.
?After he died
she missed him

did have the

world of him. People thought he
was great because he?d turn up
at 10pm and sit down and have a
cup of tea with them.
?That was part of his tactic.
His way of grooming people.?
George was 34 when he first
encountered Shipman. Now he is
77 and still thinks about it.
He admitted: ?I don?t think justice was really done. It never
should have got to that stage.
?I feel disappointed and angry
because I think if he?d have been
struck off at the time, things
would have been different.?

WHAT? The Split, BBC1, 9pm.
WHY? New six-part drama
series starring NICOLA
WALKER and STEPHEN
MANGAN. It follows divorce
lawyer Hannah (Walker) who
quits the family firm to join a
rival. The eldest of three
sisters, she finally faces her
father Oscar, who walked out
on the family 30 years ago.
Enders? June signs on Dotted line
EASTENDERS bosses better get
bulk-buying the cigarettes ? as
show legend JUNE BROWN is
sticking around for a while yet.
The soap veteran ? who will turn
92 next year ? has inked her name
on a new contract, so her chainsmoking character Dot Cotton will
be on the BBC1 soap for the
foreseeable future.
A telly source said: ?BBC bosses
exclusive
know June has a huge fanbase and
she?s a big draw for older viewers.
?She?s a real character and the
rest of the cast and crew love her.
They want her to be on the show as
long as she feels comfortable
acting, so they are delighted she
has agreed to renew her contract.
June finds working regularly keeps
her young at heart and she enjoys
the job immensely.?
June, right, has been a regular
on Albert Square since 1985, apart
from a break between 1993 and
1997. She also took six months off
in 2012 to pen her autobiography.
Earlier this year June appeared
on ITV?s 100 Years Younger In 21
Days, which saw her try wacky antiageing treatments such as
splashing her face with wee and
letting snails crawl across her.
Last night, June said: ?I?m
delighted EastEnders has allowed
me to keep playing Dot, while also
accommodating me to take on
other work opportunities.?
Like putting wee on your face all
in the name of telly.
KEEPING
IT BERRY
SIMPLE
DON?T hold your breath for
any Bake Off-style showstoppers in MARY BERRY?s
new BBC show.
She says the dishes aren?t
fancy in Britain?s Best Home
Cook, which is co-hosted by
CLAUDIA WINKLEMAN.
Mary said: ?We don?t want
complicated recipes or too
many ingredients because
they?re not achievable.
?If you think of your friends
who cook, the most amazing meals are not necessarily frightfully complicated.
They are often simple things
beautifully done, when every
texture, flavour and sauce is
sheer perfection.?
Ten cooks will compete in
the series, judged by Mary,
produce expert CHRIS
BAVIN, near left, and chef
DAN DOHERTY.
It debuts next Thursday ?
the same day and time as
the Big Family Cooking
Showdown. That was billed
as a replacement for Bake
Off but flopped after Channel 4 poached the original.
Having Mary and Claudia
fronting this is a smart move
by Beeb bosses but I
haven?t the foggiest who the
other two are.
DRAMA . . . Olivia Vinall stars
HAT?S ALL
WRONG
THE BBC?s big-budget new
drama The Woman In White
has been branded ?historically
inaccurate? by experts.
The prime-time series,
which is set in the Victorian
era and debuted on Sunday,
was littered with factual
mistakes, with garments
appearing 30 years too early.
In a scene set in 1859, lead
character Marian Halcombe,
played by JESSIE BUCKLEY,
was shown wearing bloomers
which weren?t introduced until
the late 1890s. And female
characters were seen outside
without hats, which was
almost unthinkable.
But it wasn?t just clothing
the Beeb bungled.
Walter Hartright, played by
former EastEnder BEN
HARDY, repeatedly said the
word ?OK?, which is a 20thcentury Americanism.
Author and Victorian-era
expert Carol Hedges said:
?There is no excuse not to be
historically accurate. A
disservice was done to the
period by lazy research.?
Clearly viewers agreed, as
nearly a million switched off
over the course of the hour.
soapbox
In EMMERDALE, the big trial
begins. Ross, still grappling
with the life-changing injuries
caused by his acid attack,
prays for justice.
Jimmy is terrified of being
ridiculed and Graham makes
a business proposition to
Megan ? but hints his interest
is not purely professional.
In EASTENDERS, residents
are furious about Max?s
return, especially when they
hear what he has to tell them.
Mick and Linda make it
obvious he is not welcome in
The Vic, so Mel offers him the
use of E20, which only serves
to irritate Jack.
Meanwhile, Arshad worries
when he discovers the CCTV
has been vandalised.
HARD-HITTING SHOW BASED ON GRIPPING REAL-LIFE TRAGEDY
EITHER someone at Channel 4 is
keeping a close eye on the news
or the timing of its latest show is
pure fluke.
But just weeks after the Hither
Green fatal burglary grabbed headlines, another infamous break-in that
went wrong is being revisited.
I can reveal Bafta-winning actor
STEVE PEMBERTON will play farmer
Tony
Martin,
who
was
initially
sentenced to life in prison for
murdering 16-year-old burglar Fred
Barras at his farmhouse in 1999. The
case, which caused a fierce national
debate at the time, is now being
turned into a gritty hourlong drama called The
Interrogation.
It
will
revolve
around the three days
following Tony?s arrest
for
fatally
shooting
Barras and wounding
Brendon Fearon.
At
his
appeal,
far
right,
Martin,
argued that he
had used reasonable force to defend
himself and his property and his
charge
was
downgraded
to
manslaughter. He served three years.
Channel 4 bosses say the
drama will shed light on
what was said in the
police interviews after
Martin handed over the
transcripts.
Alongside Steve, far
left, star of Inside No9
and The League Of
Gentlemen, is Line Of
Duty?s DANIEL MAYS.
A source said: ?The story of Tony
Martin really grabbed the nation in
1999 and it?s a huge topic again now
with Hither Green.
?What was said between Tony and
police has never properly been heard,
so this will give the public a fresh
look at the whole case.?
Last night Steve added: ?Now we
finally get to hear the account
directly from Tony Martin and I?m
looking forward to being part of such
a groundbreaking drama.?
The combination of Steve and this
real-life drama sounds like a hit.

I keep cheating
on my fab fella
Dear Deidre
MY boyfriend is cute and
our sex life is great. I
don?t
want
to
keep
cheating on him but I do it
again and again.
I?m 21 and he?s 22. I met him in
Spain in September last year and
it turned out he?s from my home
town. We?ve been seeing each
other since and it?s great.
He?s a great-looking guy but I?m
not sure he loves me the way that
I want to be loved. I want an
adoring, dependable, forever love ?
from his side at least.
Sometimes I test him by saying
it?s getting too heavy and that I
need a break. He always comes
running the minute I call.
I see him at weekends but on
Wednesdays I go to a club with
my mates and that?s when I?ve
been cheating on him. I guess I?m
a bit like my mum.
She got pregnant when she was
17. My dad was a soldier who
loved her and did the right thing.
She adored him to bits and when
he got killed in the desert she just
fell apart.
I was just four at the time but I

still remember that day when she
heard he was dead.
I don?t remember my dad very
much but I do recall the boyfriends that came in his wake.
She always had some bloke who
worshipped the ground she walked
on and paid for her drinks. A lot
of the time she had at least two
men on the go.
She told me she had lost the
love of her life and she just
didn?t care about men after that.
She used them to keep her from
being alone.
I got pregnant myself when I
was the age she had me but the
bloke did a runner as soon as I
told him the news.
I thought he was better than
that but I had an abortion and
I?ve kept myself free ever since.
The thing is, I do like my
boyfriend a lot and I don?t want to
hurt him or push him away.
So how do I stop myself acting
this way?
0 DEIDRE SAYS: You have been badly
hurt and you witnessed your mother?s
distress, too.
The message goes deep down
inside you that being in love leads to
terrible pain.
It?s a shame as there truly are lots
of men out there who know how to love
and who want to be loved for the
rest of their lives ? including your
boyfriend, it seems.
You risk hurting him and your own
self-esteem. Is casual sex really
your thing?
Please take better care of yourself.
Stop risking your health and your
safety and don?t risk losing the man
that you love.
So far, he has kept running back
to your side but the odds are that one
day he won?t.
My e-leaflet Can?t Be Faithful can
help you to think this all through.
Dear Deidre
MY wife is caring and kind but
there?s one thing I want ? and I
know she won?t do it for me.
I?m 36 and desperately want
extreme sexual domination.
My wife is 32 and it?s not in her
nature to hurt or dominate me
? unlike my previous partner,
who abused me cruelly, sexually, physically and mentally.
I?m thankful that?s in the past.
But my longing for sexual
domination is driving me mad.
It makes me depressed and I

pet more than he loves me.
We?ll be having a cuddle
watching TV ? then his cat will
walk in and it?s like I have
ceased to exist.

ME FOR
DIVORCE
Dear Deidre
I?M engaged to the exhusband of a close friend.
Her mother called me a
?marriage wrecker? but that?s
not the case.
I?m a gay man and was at
college with my fiance?s
ex-wife. She and I are both 28
and stayed good mates.
I danced at their wedding
and wished her luck. I was
never attracted to her but I
fancied her husband big
time. He?s 31. We giggled
about it but that was it.
They divorced three years
ago and, a year later, I was
dating her ex. She hugged
me and said: ?About time!?
Then I found myself in the
same pub as her mum. She
caused a scene, accusing
me of stealing her daughter?s
husband. I can tell others
agree but how can I convince
them they?re wrong?
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Don?t
bother. Maybe her mother
was drunk. I?m sure she was
sad the marriage broke
down but it wasn?t your
fault. You and your friend
know the truth. Others can
think what they like.
Maybe they are jealous at
seeing how happy the three
of you are. Get on with life
and be glad it worked out.
FEELING
NERVOUS
AT IFFY
PRENUP
Dear Deidre
BEFORE we got married, my
husband got me to sign a
prenuptial agreement. It?s
really worrying me.
He?s 37 and I?m 25. We
have a son aged two and a
three-month-old baby girl.
The prenup said if we split up
we?d both leave the marriage
with what we brought into it.
I sold my small house to
buy a bigger pad with him. All
I have is half a house, while
he has two places in Ireland
from which he gets rent.
He has three kids from his
previous marriage and I care
for them all ? washing,
cooking, cleaning, the lot.
What if he left me for
somebody else?
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Did you
take legal advice before
signing? Did you feel under
pressure? It was odd to ask
and I understand your
unease. Still, prenups are
not enforceable in the UK.
A judge will take them
into account, along with
other factors such whether
the agreement is fair and
realistic ? and crucially, the
best interests of any
children involved.
Best get legal advice to
be sure. Find a solicitor at
lawsociety.org.uk.

IT is drummed into us from
an early age that we should
brush our teeth twice daily.
But a study by the Oral
Health Foundation reveals
one in four adults do not,
and three quarters have
visible plaque on their teeth.
Even if we do look after
our teeth, how do we know
we?re doing it right?

DOs and
DON?Ts
WE should floss everyday
? MYTH
Public Health England says
there is no strong evidence
to prove flossing is better for
oral wellbeing than simply
brushing with toothpaste.
And flossing incorrectly can
damage gums. The British
Dental Association
recommends using an interdental brush small enough to
clean in the smallest gaps.
Red wine is bad for teeth
? MYTH
A study found polyphenols in
red wine fend off harmful
bacteria in the mouth and
can stop plaque sticking.
Over-brushing gums can
wear them away
? TRUE
It is vital we care for our gums
? and a study in Helsinki
found a clear link between
gum disease and deaths
from cancer. But be careful.
Brushing too hard will
expose the roots, upping the
risk of gum disease from
plaque bacteria. A rinse with
warm, salty water ten minutes
after eating is a good way to
keep gums healthy.
Stress can cause
gum disease
? TRUE
Bacteria thrives with stress
and researchers in Canada
found people with higher
levels of depression and the
?stress hormone? cortisol
were more prone to gum
disease. Grinding our teeth
and jaw-clenching can chip
and flatten teeth. Stress can
also make us forget oral care.
Electric toothbrushes
are the best
? TRUE
Brushing teeth properly is
key. Studies found electric
brushes removed 21 per cent
more plaque than manual
brushing. They are designed
to massage teeth and gums
correctly, preventing decay
and inflammation. But don?t
get carried away. Too much
brushing can damage
enamel, the teeth?s protective
outer shell.
Bleeding gums are
nothing to worry about
? MYTH
Bleeding gums are the first
sign of gingivitis ? gum
disease. If you see blood
when you brush, it is time to
see a dentist.

ANNIE
BELASCO,
34, was just a year
old
when
her
parents divorced.
The author lives
with husband Sam,
31, an Army saddler, and their
children Joe, four, and Rose, 18
months, in Windsor, Berks. She says:
6
I never really experienced the divorce.
I just always knew Dad didn?t live with
us.
When I was seven, I understood that
my parents had split when I was younger
but we never sat down and formally
discussed it. If I ever had any questions,
they answered them and that was that.
Dad was there every weekend and I
only have happy memories of my
childhood.
We spent lovely weekends together,
going to museums and the park. I looked
forward to these days out.
Home life couldn?t have been happier
for my sister and me, thanks to our
amazing mum. She did everything she
could to make sure we knew we were
loved and secure at home.
I came to see other families didn?t live
this way when kids at school asked
questions. The typical response was:
?Oh no, poor you.?
But I?m grateful they split and stayed
friendly with one another for our sake.
I always bonded with friends whose
parents were also divorced, as we
had more in common, but I was never
sad about it.
When I started dating in my late teens I
was much more wary of men than other
girls.
Only now do I appreciate a male
influence at home. Sam is in the
Household Cavalry and likes order,
which is good for our kids. They need a
male role model for rough play and
someone to be strict with bad behaviour.
Now I?m a married mum of two, I see
how hard my mum worked bringing us
up on her own. Dad is like a mate.
We?ll have a drink in the pub together
and they both attended my wedding.
There are no bad vibes between them.

BE HARD TO DEAL WITH AT ANY AGE
DIVORCE is always tough but
the biggest impact can be on
children stuck in the middle,
forced to pick sides and
splitting the big occasions.
Vicky Pattison has spoken
about her parents? recent
split, following her dad?s
battle with alcoholism.
While the star, 30, says the
separation was difficult to
deal with, she hopes they
now find happiness apart.
She says: ?Mum left him
about a year ago, which was
really brave. She?s 60,
beautiful and has so much to
offer. He?s the only man she?s
ever loved but she hasn?t had
a cuddle in years. My mam
deserves to be cuddled.?
Is there ever a ?good? time
to deal with divorce?
Here, three readers who
saw their parents split at
different stages of life tell
JENNY FRANCIS how they
were affected by the change.
How our
parents?
divorces
made us
better...
or worse
WHEN Lizzy Howell?s parents
announced they were divorcing
when she was 12, she was
relieved. The 27-year-old account
manager
from
Wandsworth,
South West London, admits the
constant fighting leading up to
the divorce affected her more
than anything else and wishes
they had split earlier. She says:
6
I was 12 when it happened and
my younger brother was nine. At
the time, it was a big relief.
It was clear my parents staying
together was not right for the family.
It was hard. I think they stayed
together longer than they should
have for us ? they thought it was
better than splitting up. But the
truth is the opposite.
There were a difficult few years
leading up to the divorce, so when it
happened my parents were able to
move on and live separate, far happier lives apart.
I don?t see my dad any more. I
haven?t seen him for years. But I
have moved on with my life and so
has my dad and I?m OK with that.
My parents? divorce does make
me think twice about getting married myself. I?m not in any hurry to
settle down because I saw what a
horrible place my parents were in
RIDE . . . Kris with Maren and Denise
GET ON YOUR
BIKE FOR US
By KRIS HALLENGA
KAREN
(Aged 23 when
parents divorced)
?Break-up
scared me
off love and
marriage?
KAREN FIGGITT?S parents
broke up when she was 23. The
caterer, now 37, says the split
turned her life upside down,
forcing her to look after her
fractured family rather than
focus on starting her own. The
mum, from Weymouth, Dorset, says:
6
and how miserable they both were.
My past boyfriends have all been
lovely people because I look for
kind, responsible men and tend to
steer away from ?Jack the lad?
types like my dad.
The best thing is that my brother
and I are super-close, as we have
always been there for each other.
I know he will walk me down the
aisle if I ever change my mind.
It was hard growing up around a
negative atmosphere but now I feel
it?s the best thing that happened to
our family.
My mum, brother and I are
so close because of it.
7
Mum and Dad had been
together for 27 years
before they got divorced. It hit
me hard.
Growing up, I had a lovely
childhood. I felt really secure and adored.
My parents used to take us on exciting
caravan holidays, with Dad driving and
Mum packing picnics.
Because I was an adult when they
divorced, people weren?t as sympathetic
to me and my feelings as they are to younger children. I didn?t have to decide who
to live with but I had to start deciding who
I would visit and call for a catch-up.
Suddenly that family base was gone
and I felt lost. Soon after, I had to step up
and take on the role of the man with my
mum. For years Dad had been in charge
of so much and Mum was clueless.
I had to start sorting bills and jobs at
the house. I went from being carefree in
my twenties after moving out to super-responsible. Mum didn?t filter her views and
I?d beg her to stop talking about Dad
badly. I couldn?t work out how they?d
been wed so long then decided to divorce.
After a few years, it started to affect my
relationships too.
I?d always believed I?d be married happily when I found the right man but I suddenly changed. I ruled marriage out and it
caused havoc with my boyfriend at the
time. It made me careless in my relationship and I ended up breaking up with him
because of their divorce. I was suddenly
scared of love.
I had a lot of failed dates and short-term
relationships. It wasn?t until I met my
fianc� Philip, 52, that I realised I could be
happy. We?re long-term engaged, as I?m
still scared of marriage, and have
been together 14 years.
7
DID you watch the London Marathon at
the weekend? Or were you taking part?
If the latter, I salute you. I can only
imagine how triumphant you must feel,
and how much your body hates you
right now. I will never know how that
actually feels because I can happily
say I will never run a marathon.
Not because I can?t, I am pretty sure I
could be stubborn enough to force my
body to run/walk a marathon, but it?s
more that I don?t want to. A halfmarathon two years ago was more than
enough for me and I never caught the
bug that some people speak of.
If you were in any way, shape or form
inspired by the running feat and fancy
taking on your own challenge, may I
suggest a fun bike ride in Cornwall?
Yes it?s back. Our Hilly Hundred
cycling event returns and we are
looking for some adventurous types to
take part. My sister Maren no longer
works for CoppaFeel! but she can?t let
go of organising the charity?s bike ride
and helping to raise thousands of
pounds in aid of the work we continue
to do.
A warning: It?s called Hilly Hundred
for a reason.
It started off as ?Pedalling for
Pounds?, then ?Biking for Boobies?
and then we thought we should make it
very clear just how hilly this county is
and throw in the distance, too.
Fancy dress
During our first event in 2010 we
somehow convinced Denise Lewis,
she of epic Olympic fame, to take part.
She hadn?t ridden a bike for a very
long time which was evident as she
tried to scale the hills in wrong gears.
It was humbling as much as it was
amusing, but of course Denise barely
looked out of breath as she crossed
the finish line like an absolute pro.
My sister and I took part on a tandem
dressed as TV fitness instructor Mr
Motivator, because one of the
highlights of the event is that the last
day is done in fancy dress.
This year the event starts and
finishes at the wonderful Eden Project.
As an added bonus you get to cycle
through the attraction?s rainforest
biome before hitting the hills and
cycling 100 miles over two days.
I won?t be taking part and, again, it?s
not because I can?t, but because I don?t
want to. There?s power in knowing you
can but choosing not to when you are
chronically ill. But I?ll be kept busy
ensuring all our cyclists are filled with
snacks and liquids.
So join us and remind yourself how
important your butt muscles are.
And while you?re here let us make
you fall in love with the beautiful
county that I now call home. Sign up at
coppafeel.org/hillyhundred.

JANET BURRIDGE
Clacton-on-Sea, Essex
BREXIT is never likely to happen
while we have a Remainer as
Prime Minister.
Politics is a game to these people. When she announced ?Brexit
means Brexit? ? and swiftly
demolished Ukip by enticing their
members to join the Conservatives ? the delivery of Brexit was
the last thing on her mind.
It has just been a cunning ruse
on the part of the Government to
lead people to think that they are
delivering the people?s democratic
mandate when they had no
intention of it.
TERRY DURRANCE
Southport, Merseyside
IN years to come, experts will
analyse the pluses and minuses of
Theresa May?s premiership.
Her rating as a PM who has
contributed in a positive way to
Britain?s advancement will be
ultimately decided on whether
she
carries
through
Brexit
successfully or not.
If she caves in on her red line
of not allowing us to remain in
the EU customs union, she will
have failed miserably.
HOWARD GARDNER
Sale, Cheshire
VERY good to read that Mrs May
will not cave in over Britain
leaving the customs union.
I feel sure that the great
majority

politicians
and
unelected Lords who want us to
stay in have put their own personal vested interests before the
result of a democratic vote.

May, and save yourself from

WHAT is the all the fuss about
securing trade deals after Brexit?
As I see it, we already trade
with most of the world outside of
the European Union.
The majority of our clothing is
made either in India, Pakistan or
Sri Lanka.
The majority of our televisions

Your luck today is based on involving others in your ideas,
especially one person who is your opposite in personality and
experience. Jupiter makes you a power couple. In love terms,
you want to move on, but be sure to take your partner with you.
Single? A secretly wealthy new love steals your heart.
Pluto drives the transformation part of your chart and in family
or relationship matters you are ready for big changes. The key
is to keep everyone informed and stick to the facts. Lowering a
cash goal can help it happen faster. The slow and steady
revelation of love gives a relationship staying power.
Being bolder in voicing your needs may feel odd at first but
practice makes perfect. So just get started on it, especially at
work or where a group ask you for different things. Your love
chart opens up and you can respond by revealing your hopes
for an exciting partnership, because they will be answered.
A home-based question can be resolved and a positive phase
for your love life can begin. You control your feelings far more
than you think, and holding back in one way today can lead to
key progress tomorrow. New money links to a skill or craft that
has become a tradition in your family and one to make more of.
Your impulsive side shines through as Mars wakes up your fun
chart. Pluto means you are not afraid to say some life-changing
words, so your secret ambition can leap into life. Keep love
light, as laughter unites a couple, however long you have been
together. If you are single, you will click with a part-time singer.
You are your own best boss so organise your time the same way
you would for someone else, and bear in mind there are at least
two chances that need to be taken. In love terms, prepare to be
flirted with and won over by an ex-neighbour. In a relationship?

element and when you see a hot chance you will be first in line
to claim it. There is money to be made at home too, by upscaling
old furniture. This time you stay in control of how the cash is
spent. Venus adds trust that deepens love in all kinds of ways.
A day of changes for you, even though you may not leave your
home or desk. Inside, you are making a far-reaching leap
towards a more exciting life. Later you will get a supportive
reaction when you reveal new plans. Venus asks you to work
harder on a relationship and extra effort leads to extra rewards.
Instead of downplaying ideas because you assume they won?t
fit the life you want, this is your moment to reveal them and
move forward. This can solve a work puzzle. At home, be
generous with your time. As Venus takes over in your travel
chart, a town underlined on a map is where you could marry.
Venus becomes your love counsellor, helping to assess the
role romance plays in your life. And you could admit to yourself
that you want more. From that moment, your fresh mindset can
work its magic on partnerships, however long you have been
together. Family and work relationships are more productive.

CLEARED
THE CO-OP has the allclear for its �7.5million
takeover of NISA.
The Competition and
Markets Authority (CMA)
found the two firms do not
compete and concluded
shoppers will not be worse
off as a result of the deal.
The CMA also said
grocery stores supplied by
Nisa would still be able to
set their own prices and
were free to decide which
products to stock.
Sheldon Mills, from the
CMA, said: ?Millions of
people shop at
convenience stores and
supermarkets, and it is
vital that they continue to
have enough choice to get
the best value for them.
?After careful
consideration, we?ve found
that there is sufficient
competition in both the
wholesale and retail
sectors to ensure that
shoppers are not
worse off.?
Co-op will retain Nisa as
a standalone business and
see the number of stores
it supplies almost double
to 7,000 outlets. The
approval comes shortly
after TESCO finalised its
�7billion tie-up with
wholesaler BOOKER
GROUP, which was subject
to a similar UK probe.

Culture Secretary Matt

the �6.7million deal on
two grounds: the impact it
would have on editorial
decision making and need
for a plurality of views.
He said: ?In coming to
this minded-to decision I
have taken into account
that the merged entity
would own the largest
share of national titles
within the UK newspaper
market, owning nine out
of 20 national titles.?

METAL MAYHEM
THE US has softened its
position
on
sanctions
against Russian metals
RUSAL,
sparking
giant
a
record
plunge
in
aluminium prices.
Yesterday, the US Treasury outlined a path for
lifting the sanctions on
Rusal, saying it would
provide relief if oligarch
Oleg
Deripaska
relin-
quished control of the
company. It also extended
the deadline for companies to wind down
dealings with the Russian
aluminium producer by
almost five months.
The aluminium price
fell by nearly ten per
cent at one point as traders speculated that supply
disruptions could ease.
Its shares rose 13 per cent to 180.80p
on the news.
Capita operates the London congestion
charge
and
the
Jobseeker?s
Allowance helpline. It collects the
BBC licence fee and administers
teachers? pensions. Its corporate clients
include O2, JOHN LEWIS, MARKS &
SPENCER and SKY.
Last year a profits warning led to a dramatic
share price plunge that
wiped hundreds of millions
off its value. Now Mr
Lewis
is
restructuring
Capita to focus on five
activities:
software,
HR,
customer
management,
government services and IT.
He said: ?We need to
simplify Capita by focusing on
growth markets and to improve
our cost competitiveness.
?We plan to invest up to �0million
in our infrastructure, technology and
people over the next three years. We
are already a top five UK software
company. We have to demonstrate we
can go organically and be sustainable.?
Under the new strategy, Capita is
also targeting disposals of around

of
heavy write-offs linked to
past acquisitions.
Russ
Mould,
investment
director at AJ BELL, said: ?Key to the
share price advance is investor relief
that a �1million rights issue is fully
underwritten, meaning various investment banks have guaranteed to take
new stock unwanted by shareholders.
?The new cash should help remove
financial pressures on the balance
sheet and let management focus on
finding ways to revive Capita.?

Jeremy Noseda?s three-year-old - named

Rob Gronkowski - was set to fly to America this weekend ahead of the legendary
?Run For The Roses? at Churchill Downs.
However, Noseda said: ?The horse has
had a minor setback. We will know
where we are in the next 24 hours.?
Aidan O?Brien?s Mendelssohn is 4-1

TEMPLEGATE?S TIPS
TAKE a Leap of faith in HuntingH don?s 8.00. CHURCH LEAP (nap)
had some good form in bumpers and
novices? hurdles a few years ago. He
was pulled up with a breathing issue on
his handicap debut in February. A wind
operation should have solved that problem and the drying ground will also help.
The fact Nico De Boinville (below) is
back on board only boosts confidence.
CORROSIVE (2.25 Yarmouth, nb) is
ready for a big season. He finished
fifth in a red-hot maiden on debut last
year before easily winning
his second start. He looks
smart and it would be no surprise to see him turn into a
Group performer.
ART ECHO (5.25
Brighton, treble)
can resume winning
ways. He has finished
first and second in
two runs over course
and distance. His
recent run at Doncaster blew blew
away the cobwebs.

By WALLY
DOWNES Jr
TONY BELLEW says boxing
chiefs must take a tougher
stance on drug cheats ? or
they will end up with a dead
fighter?s blood on their hands. reckons he may have been targeted
Mexican middleweight hero Saul
by testers because of it. He added:
?I cannot say that Canelo is a
cheat until the doping organisations
say so, we still need clarification.
?I should not say anything really,
because when I do, they turn up at
my house the next morning.
?They did last time and they will
probably do it again.
?As soon as I did an interview
they were round at 5am and my
missus
was
shouting
out
the
window telling them they had the
wrong address.?
The former cruiserweight world
champion and MMA fan has
opened talks with the UFC over a
fight with Brit Michael Bisping.
?The Count?, 39, wants to bring
the curtain down on his career
with a final UK showdown.
And Bellew ? who stopped Haye
in the 11th round in March last
year after Haye picked up an
Achilles injury ? says he will enter
the cage to take on Bisping.
Bellew added: ?I spoke to the
UFC last week, if Michael Bisping
wants to dance then I?m game.
?I would go into the cage ? it
would not be legally fair if one of
them got in a ring with me.?
l TYSON FURY has been granted a

Board of Control.

REACTION after the Kop?s
Champions League semifinal clash against Roma
OUTRAGED
. . . Bellew says
action is needed
to stop doping
?Canelo? Alvarez copped just a sixmonth ban and no fine for TWO
failed tests in the build-up to his
now-cancelled May 5 rematch with
Gennady Golovkin.
Canelo had a minor surgery to
coincide with his punishment ?
and could walk back into another
big fight as early as September.
Liverpool
heavyweight
Bellew
says boxing bosses will only take
serious measures once a fighter has
been KILLED by a doping cheat.
?Bomber? fights fellow Brit David
Haye on May 5 at London?s O2.
And Bellew said: ?If Canelo has
taken drugs, then ban him.
?But it genuinely won?t change
until ? and I am sorry to say this
? someone dies at the hands of
someone on steroids, because then
it is premeditated murder.
?When that happens, you will see
the sport change ? but until that
defining moment you will not.
?Six
months
and
he?s
had
surgery, what?s the point?
?Plus no fine ? are you f******
messing me about?
?When someone dies then they
will start banning people for life
and that will send a message.
?It will take someone losing their
life ? people understand that is
more important than money.
?If someone dies at the hands of
a drug cheat it will change ? but
why does that have to happen??
Bellew, 35, has consistently
spoken out on doping ? and

COSTANTINO
ROCCA
has
revealed John Daly did not just
steal the Claret Jug from under
his nose ? he also whipped his
ice cream.
Rocca famously holed a monster
putt from the Valley of Sin at St
Andrews to force a play-off with
Daly at the 1995 Open, only for the
Wild Thing to come out on top and
claim his second Major title.
But Rocca remembers the aftermath to that event just as vividly,
with the duo pairing up again as the
star attractions at the Dutch Open
the following week.
He grinned: ?One of the sponsors
of the tournament was Haagen-Dazs,
and they sent a huge box of ice
cream each for me and John.
?It did not arrive at the clubhouse
until nearly midnight, so I said, ?I
don?t need ice cream at this time of
night ? I?ll get it tomorrow?.
?So the next morning I went to

cream?? and they said ?No, John
Daly took it.? He?d eaten all of my
ice cream as well as his!
?I said to him later, ?You beat me
in the play-off, so you?re a lucky
man. But now you steal my ice
cream? That?s too much!?
?He just laughed and gave me a
hug. We became good friends, and
now we will both be going back to
St Andrews in July to play in the
Senior Open.
?So I will buy him an ice cream,
and see if he remembers what
happened in Holland.?
Rocca, 61, tried to recreate his
famous putt from just short of the
18th green yesterday but gave up
after he finally went close with his
22nd attempt, which shaved the hole.
He added: ?I suppose it shows
what an amazing occurrence it was
for me to hole that putt 23 years
ago. It?s funny, when I go to America
a lot of people remember that I beat
JENNY HAGLUND?S 272-yard drive at

?You have to remember that I tried

MO FARAH has been
tipped to be a major
threat to the world?s best
marathon
man
Eliud
Kipchoge in the run-up to
Tokyo 2020.
Farah finished third in
his first serious outing at
the
London
Marathon,
clocking 2hr 6min 21sec
to break the British
record of 33 years.
Olympic
champ
Kipchoge, from Kenya, won
Sunday?s race in 2:04.17.
And Farah?s coach Gary
Lough believes the Brit,
who won four Olympic gold
medals at 5,000 metres
and 10,000m, can be a
threat at next year?s World
Championships in Qatar
and the Tokyo Olympics.
Lough said: ?Eliud is the
best marathon runner ever
but I think Mo can get to
a similar level of number
one or two in the world.
?If you put him into a
championship environment
like next year in Doha or
certainly 2020 in Tokyo, I
definitely think Mo should
be someone people have
major concerns about.?
Lough took over as
Farah?s coach last year,
when the runner moved
back to London from
America.
He added: ?When we
first sat down one of my
questions was trying to
figure out Mo?s motivation.
?If it was just ticking
boxes, or to do it because
it was expected of him, I
was not really sure it was
the thing for me.
?But I could see the
real desire. He wants to
be the best he can be and
the best he can be is
going to be one of the
best in the world.
?A time of 2:03, 2:04 is
realistic for him. Some of
the stuff that he has done
in training is incredible.
?There is some stuff
we?ve got to add and he
learned a lot of lessons on
Sunday in terms of drinking and water bottles.?
Farah missed his drink
early on at a water
station, picking up the
wrong bottle at the hottest London Marathon on
record before complaining
about staff taking pictures
instead of helping him.

Hartley,
capped 93 times, is a blow for
Eddie Jones ahead of the threeTest Springbok tour in June.
After missing 14 weeks of the
2015/16 season because of bangs
to his head, Hartley admitted
another might end his professional playing career.
The day after lifting the 2016
Six Nations Grand Slam he
exclusively revealed to SunSport
that he could not even remember picking up the silverware
and doing a lap of honour. He
only just managed to shake off
the symptoms to lead England
to an historic series whitewash
over Australia.
Back then, he said: ?If I got
another one now, I would be
worried. I would probably start
looking at other careers, or
maybe a long lay-off.
?I

MOHAMMAD AMIR did not travel with Pakistan
for their tour of England after visa problems.
But the Pakistan Cricket Board claim the pace
bowler (below), 26, is expected to fly to London
tomorrow once the visa has been granted.
PCB spokesperson Amjad Bhatti said: ?Amir
could not travel with the team. There?s some
procedural issue which I hope will be resolved.?
It has been reported that Amir had applied for
a longer term spouse visa as his wife is a British
national which could lead to him
getting a UK passport.
During Pakistan?s last tour of
England two years ago, Amir ?
banned for five years for spot-fixing in
2010 ? faced a similar problem.

EXCLUSIVE by JORDAN DAVIES
SOUTHAMPTON star Sofiane Boufal has
been banished to train on his own after a
massive dressing-room bust-up with boss
Mark Hughes.
Sub Boufal, 24, sent Hughes into a rage by
refusing his request to warm-up during Saints? 3-2
Premier League defeat at home to Chelsea
earlier this month.
Club insiders say new boss Sparky
threw a water bottle across the St
Mary?s changing room while giving
Boufal a post-match dressing down.
The midfielder, once Saints? record
signing, has not been in the squad
for the South Coast strugglers? last
two matches, a dour 0-0 draw at
Leicester and Sunday?s 2-0 FA Cup
semi-final loss to Chelsea.
Hughes claimed he was suffering
with ?illness? but Boufal yesterday
posted a picture on his Instagram
page, looking fit and
healthy in the sunshine.
Under
the
picture
Boufal wrote, ?Have a
good week? with an emoji
of a smiley face wearing
sunglasses.
The Moroccan international has flopped since
Saints paid French club
Lille �million for his
services in summer 2016.
He has managed only
four goals in 59 appearances as Saints have been
sucked into the drop zone.
The club are four points
adrift of safety with just
four games left. They will be desperate to sell
Boufal in the summer ? especially if they go
down ? as he is one of their highest earners
on around �,000 a week.
Leicester boss Claude Puel, who brought
the player to St Mary?s before being axed by
Saints, remains an admirer.
Since
replacing
the
sacked
Mauricio
Pellegrino last month, Hughes (above) has
repeatedly said he wants to get rid of the bad
eggs in the Southampton dressing room.
Speaking immediately after the Chelsea
league defeat, he said: ?I am getting to
understand who are the guys who are going
to help us and those who are not willing to
put their bodies on the line.?

FORMER Hull City owner
Adam Pearson is heading
a consortium to try to buy
crisis club Sunderland.
Pearson and his team
have approached owner
Ellis Short and are now
one of two live bidders for
the Black Cats, who were
relegated to League One
at the weekend.
Pearson, who still owns
Hull FC rugby league club,
has worked in football at

His backers are a secret
but they think their offer
will be better than a local

Short has told buyers he
will waive the debts owed
to him, though there is a
further bank debt.

The former defender,
who spent 12 years at Sunderland, said: ?You have to

?You also have to question the recruitment too.

AN Everton win, a Theo
Walcott goal ? at this
rate they will even be
chanting Sam Allardyce?s
name as well.
OK, that last one was
pushing the boundaries just
a little too much, but in the
land of the unlikely those
first two will do for now.
Three games ? and a
whole load of vitriol
and abuse aimed at
the manager ? had
passed
since
the
Toffees
last managed
a victory.
More than
two months had
passed
since
�million
buy
Walcott?s one goalscoring game ? a
double
to
see
off
Leicester.
So how welcome both were
last night and they even
moved Everton up to eighth
in the Premier League.
But it was never going to
be remotely enough to stop
those hard-nosed Bluenoses
from letting Allardyce know
what they thought of him.
Big Sam has been about as
welcome in these parts as a
Manchester City team bus
across Stanley Park.
Never
mind
ill-planned
e-mail questionnaires from
blundering marketing men,
the banners said it all here ?
notably the one screaming
?Our Survey Says Get Out Of
Our Club.?
When the Goodison gaffer
used his programme notes to
talk
of
the
?intoxicating
Goodison atmosphere of a
night game? ? he at least got
the toxic part right.
So how welcome it was for
him to end a run of three
winless games with three
points ? even if they mean
little in the general scheme
of the season as a whole.
They came courtesy of
Walcott?s right boot and it
was somehow fittingly ironic
that they also came after an
initial dodgy control and
slice of good luck.
Yannick
Bolasie?s
huge,
hooked delivery into the
penalty area was no more
than hopeful at best.
Walcott?s first touch was
shocking, but when the ball
bounced
back
off
Cenk
Tosun?s shin, he had the
presence of mind to lift his
shot over Martin Dubravka
into the roof of the net.
In terms of possession, it
probably
ensured
a
fair
result. Although in terms of
chances ? clear ones at least
? that is doubtful.
Indeed,
if
sub
Dwight
Gayle had been on the pitch
a little longer and adjusted
to the pace of things, he
would have levelled a quarter
of an hour after Walcott?s
50th-minute strike.
Instead,
with
the
ball
bouncing awkwardly in the
box, Gayle could only pull
his effort over and the
chance was gone.
Newcastle
blew
another
gilt-edged opportunity when
Jordan Pickford fluffed a
clearance and Ayoze Perez
failed to deliver a simple
pass that would have given

SALAH TO SCORE
THE FIRST GOAL
AGAINST ROMA
IN CHAMPS LGE
WHEN you have got Mohamed Salah in
your team anything is possible.
Liverpool?s king of the Kop was crowned
PFA Player of the Year on Sunday after
bagging 41 goals this season ? and now he
is out to land a dagger in Roman hearts.
The Egyptian will be hoping to add to his
tally of nine Champions League goals this
term against his old side Roma.
Salah?s hot streak of nine goals in his last
six games also makes him favourite with
Sun Bets to open the scoring at 12/5.
Jurgen Klopp will deploy his attacking
legion of Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto
Firmino hoping for a repeat of the first-leg
devastation against Man City last time out.
Firmino has also got nine in Europe this
season while Mane has seven and we?ve got
all three to score or assist anytime at 11/4.
The Reds have hit six goals in the first 15
minutes this term. Sun Bets offer 11/4 for
them to win the opening quarter of an hour.
Roma overturned a three-goal deficit in
their quarter-final with Barcelona and
Eusebio Di Francesco?s side are 5/1 with
Sun Bets to win just their second Champions League away tie in 15 attempts.
If they do it, it is likely to be thanks to
Edin Dzeko, who scored twice in the 3-3
draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in
October. Sun Bets have the Bosnian at 6/1
to score first and 17/10 to notch anytime.
Tomorrow, Bayern Munich will be out for
revenge against the self-titled kings of
Europe, Real Madrid, after losing 6-3 on
aggregate in last year?s quarters.
But Cristiano Ronaldo is in devastating
form with 15 goals in Europe this season.
The Portuguese Exocet missile is 9/2 to
score two or more goals and 18/1 to bag a
hat-trick with Sun Bets.
If you fancy Bayern?s Colombian talisman
James Rodriguez to score or assist against
his parent club, he is 8/11 with Sun Bets.

CHELSEA and Manchester

to slam the FA over ticket
prices for next month?s
Cup final.
Top-price
seats
for
the
Wembley showdown on May 19
will cost �5 ? more than 80
per cent up on the prices for
last weekend?s two semi-finals.
Supporters of both clubs took
to social media to brand FA
chiefs ?an absolute disgrace?
and ?scandalous?.
And Dave Chidgey, chairman
of
the
Chelsea
Supporters?
Trust, told SunSport: ?This is
obscene, absolutely obscene.
?The FA are profiteering from

?It?s the sort of thing you

Ambler explained:
?The

FA
Cup semi-finals and

most prestigious events in the
sporting calendar and these
new prices are in line with
many of these events.
?It?s

off the other two pricing tiers.
He also pledged the FA would
consider
introducing
family
areas in the east and west
stands in future and potentially
placing the second category
tickets behind the goals.
The FA believe the
concession
decision
shows they are willing
to listen to concerns
of fans.
But Chidgey added:
?It is laudable the
FA puts their money
into grass-roots football but they should
be thinking about the
welfare of fans as well.
?We?re not daft. The FA
were never going to change
their minds on the general

would reluctantly allow
the player to leave for the
good of his own career.
Stones had been widely
praised for his development under Guardiola but
the City boss now wants
to sign another centrehalf this summer to
compete with injury-prone
skipper Vincent Kompany,
Nicolas
Otamendi
and
Laporte.
As Stones approaches
his 24th birthday next
month, it is understood
that Guardiola does not
feel he has improved
sufficiently to make him a
first-team regular.
With City insisting on
recouping most of the
�.5million they laid out
to sign him from Everton
two years ago, and Stones
earning
�0,000
per
week, few clubs would be
able to afford him.
But Arsenal are in the
hunt for a centre-back
and could be interested
once
Arsene
Wenger?s
successor is named.
And Liverpool, who have
money to burn after the
�5m January sale of
Philippe Coutinho, may
also be keen.
City are now scouring
the European market for
available centre-backs, as
well as their No 1 summer
priority ? the signing of
a defensive midfielder.
Stones has not started a
Premier League match
since January, although
City say he has been out
with an adductor muscle
injury for the past few
weeks.
England boss Gareth
Southgate is a huge fan of
Stones ? and will start
him at the World Cup
despite his lack of football
with City.
But the player now
knows he will have to
move on in order to
secure regular first-team
action next season.

But other City aces have

the trio who played such
key roles in Liverpool?s
early obliteration of Manchester City at Anfield
earlier this month.
And tonight they will
be charged with performing the same job on
Roma in the semi-final.
A front three from
Egypt,
Senegal
and
Brazil may be earning
the loudest plaudits but
Jurgen Klopp?s Liverpool
are built on unashamedly
English foundations.
While it?s fashionable
to sneer at English footballers, Reds chief Klopp
is not joining in.
The German insisted:
?If you have two players
at the same level and
one is English and the
other is from somewhere
else, I always go for the
English guy. They keep
the mood good and feel
the club?s history.
?We have fantastic guys
from all over the world
. . . but the English guys
lead the group.?
Henderson
?
who
could end up captaining
England in Russia and
Liverpool in Kiev ? has
developed
an
unfussy
sense of authority as a
footballer and as a man.
And Henderson says he
owes a lot to Klopp. The
27-year-old said: ?He?s
one of the best managers
in the world.
?Tactically, that goes
without saying. Off the
field, he?s a fantastic
human and he has a
great passion for football.
?He always looks for
more. I feel I have
improved a lot since he
came to the club.?
Alongside
Henderson,
the Ox is beginning to
flourish ? and it is a
damning indictment of
Arsene Wenger?s waning
powers that he seems to
have developed further in
eight
months
under
Klopp than in six years
at the Emirates.
When he hit a belting
second goal during that
blitz
of
City,
Klopp
demanded to know why
he didn?t score more
often. He is being pushed
on Merseyside in a way
he never was at Arsenal.
England boss Gareth
Southgate
was
openly
sceptical when told the
24-year-old was heading
to Liverpool as a central
midfielder, insisting he
saw him as a wideman.
Now
the
ex-Gunner
may end up partnering
Henderson in the centre
of the park in Russia.
After a difficult start
at
Anfield,
OxladeChamberlain is proving
himself
centrally
and
nobody is laughing at his
�million fee any more.
And then there?s the
nation?s
favourite
pitpony, Milner. When he
retired from international
duty at Euro 2016, there
was no mourning.
Yet this most derided
of footballers ?? ridiculed
on Twitter but happier
than most to laugh about
himself ? is belatedly
earning appreciation.
The
?boring
James
Milner? image originally
came about because of
the teetotaller?s solid but
unspectacular style ? yet
his sale once led to Kevin
Keegan leaving Newcastle
in a fit of pique.
There has always been
much to admire about
this
most
typically
English player.
And another big performance against Roma?s
experienced midfield trio
of Daniele De Rossi,
Radja Nainggolan and
Kevin Strootman tonight
might
leave
Southgate
asking him to reverse his
international retirement.
Just as Milner?s natural
soulmate,
Sweden?s
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, has
done . . .
CITY GREATS IN REVENGE PLOT
ALEKSANDAR KOLAROV is on
a revenge mission to dump
Liverpool out of the Champions
League.
The former Manchester City star
could
have
been
making
an
emotional return to the Etihad for
tonight?s semi-final, first leg.
But Jurgen Klopp?s troops spoiled that
fairytale by pulling off a shock quarterfinal win against Pep Guardiola?s men.
And that means Roma tough guy
Kolarov and pal Edin Dzeko, another
City great, will have vengeance on their
minds when they walk out at Anfield.
Kolarov said: ?It would have been a
huge thing for Edin and myself to have
returned to the Etihad with Roma and I
thought City would beat Liverpool.
?But now we have the chance as former City players to get some kind of
revenge. We?ve had plenty of messages
By MARTIN
BLACKBURN
from City fans asking us to do that and
we?ll be trying our best, I can assure you
of that.?
Kolarov, 32, can expect even more flak
from Liverpool supporters when they
learn that the Serb gave pride of place
to an EVERTON shirt in his locker at
City?s training ground.
Kolarov was affectionately known as
?Herbert? by City?s long-serving former
kitman Les Chapman.
So when the left-back was warming up
before a game at Goodison several years
ago, something caught his eye.
Chapman recalled: ?Aleks came dashing over to me and said ?Chappy, you
have to get me that guy?s shirt ? he?s
called Herbert?. I wasn?t aware of an
Everton player called Herbert. But then I
looked and it was Tony Hibbert.
?I arranged with Everton?s kitman to
get the shirt. Then I changed a couple of
the letters so it read ?Herbert?.
?He was so pleased with it that he
hung it in his locker at Carrington ? it
was the first thing you would see when
he opened it up.?
So Kolarov and Dzeko will try to bring
a smile to the blue halves of Manchester
and Merseyside by getting a result in
tonight?s first leg.
The Balkan Boys ? Kolarov is Serbian
while Dzeko is from Bosnia ? were
inseparable
during
their
4
years
together at the Etihad. Now they have
both ended up at the Olympic Stadium.
Former Preston boss Chapman said:
?They?re from different countries but the
same part of the world ? and they were
great friends on and off the pitch.
?I know Aleks had a love of Rome as

NO FEAR . . . Robertson ready for Roma visit
Robertson
fired up for
date in Kiev
By MARTIN BLACKBURN
ANDREW ROBERTSON says Liverpool
have the fire in their bellies to drive
them to the Champions League final.
The Reds start tonight?s semi-final first
leg against Roma as favourites to go on
and clinch a place in Kiev on May 26.
And beating the new Prem champions
Manchester City in the quarter-finals
will give Liverpool extra confidence to
overcome the conquerors of Barcelona.
Robertson said: ?Once you get to the
semis, the fear of who you are playing
has gone because you know how good
the teams are.
?It?s like you look forward to the
possibility of playing in the final, that?s
what drives you forward.
?We?ll have fire in our bellies because
we are so close to getting there.
?Roma have been unbelievable this
season too in the Champions League
and deserve to be in the semi-finals.
?It will definitely not be an easy
game. For them to score three goals
against Barcelona, that?s special.?
The Anfield club have won this competition FIVE times. And for Robertson
to have the possibility of adding to that
number, less than a year after moving
from Hull, is beyond his wildest dreams.
He told Arab News: ?I was a big
Celtic fan growing up and my heroes
were Henrik Larsson (below) and Co.
?But these heroes who have won the
European Cup and Champions League
for Liverpool, you have to look up to
them ? and we want to emulate them
and hopefully get a winners? medal too.
?The club?s won it five times and the
history of the club has always been
this, the Champions League, where the
fans create a special atmosphere and
the club challenges for the trophy.
?It would be unbelievable to be a
part of that history.
?As a kid, you sit back and watch
how great it would be to play in this
competition, let alone in the final.?
It was clear in the first leg against
City the red-hot Anfield atmosphere
made a huge difference to the home
side ? and Robertson hopes they can
recreate that.
The 24-year-old said: ?I always
used to go to Celtic and the fans
there are incredible but Anfield
was unbelievable against City.
?Now we have another chance
for them to create that same
atmosphere and hopefully we
can put in another great
performance.?

JURGEN KLOPP knows
what it takes to
reach a Champions

Liverpool?s
manager
can feel it, breathe it,
smell it as he prepares
for Roma in tonight?s
first leg at Anfield.
He believes, just as he did
when he was coach of the
Borussia

side
who made it to the 2013

can go all the way.

said:
?I

Klopp knows that the

surprisingly beaten 3-0 in
Rome ? in the last four of
Europe?s top competition.
He added: ?A lot of
people thought this semifinal
would
usually

but it?s not.
?Roma made it possible,
we are now here as well
and we deserve to be here.
?I came up the stairs at

Barcelona.
?I didn?t believe it in the

were playing Barcelona. But
we did something similar

?We

?We are similar in the

COSTANTINO
ROCCA
has
revealed John Daly did not just
steal the Claret Jug from under
his nose ? he also whipped his
ice cream.
Rocca famously holed a monster
putt from the Valley of Sin at St
Andrews to force a play-off with
Daly at the 1995 Open, only for the
Wild Thing to come out on top and
claim his second Major title.
But Rocca remembers the aftermath to that event just as vividly,
with the duo pairing up again as the
star attractions at the Dutch Open
the following week.
He grinned: ?One of the sponsors
of the tournament was Haagen-Dazs,
and they sent a huge box of ice
cream each for me and John.
?It did not arrive at the clubhouse
until nearly midnight, so I said, ?I
don?t need ice cream at this time of
night ? I?ll get it tomorrow?.
?So the next morning I went to

them and said, ?Do you have my ice
cream?? and they said ?No, John
Daly took it.? He?d eaten all of my
ice cream as well as his!
?I said to him later, ?You beat me
in the play-off, so you?re a lucky
man. But now you steal my ice
cream? That?s too much!?
?He just laughed and gave me a
hug. We became good friends, and
now we will both be going back to
St Andrews in July to play in the
Senior Open.
?So I will buy him an ice cream,
and see if he remembers what
happened in Holland.?
Rocca, 61, tried to recreate his
famous putt from just short of the
18th green yesterday but gave up
after he finally went close with his
22nd attempt, which shaved the hole.
He added: ?I suppose it shows
what an amazing occurrence it was
for me to hole that putt 23 years
ago. It?s funny, when I go to America
a lot of people remember that I beat
JENNY HAGLUND?S 272-yard drive at

MO FARAH has been
tipped to be a major
threat to the world?s best
marathon
man
Eliud
Kipchoge in the run-up to
Tokyo 2020.
Farah finished third in
his first serious outing at
the
London
Marathon,
clocking 2hr 6min 21sec
to break the British
record of 33 years.
Olympic
champ
Kipchoge, from Kenya, won
Sunday?s race in 2:04.17.
And Farah?s coach Gary
Lough believes the Brit,
who won four Olympic gold
medals at 5,000 metres
and 10,000m, can be a
threat at next year?s World
Championships in Qatar
and the Tokyo Olympics.
Lough said: ?Eliud is the
best marathon runner ever
but I think Mo can get to
a similar level of number
one or two in the world.
?If you put him into a
championship environment
like next year in Doha or
certainly 2020 in Tokyo, I
definitely think Mo should
be someone people have
major concerns about.?
Lough took over as
Farah?s coach last year,
when the runner moved
back to London from
America.
He added: ?When we
first sat down one of my
questions was trying to
figure out Mo?s motivation.
?If it was just ticking
boxes, or to do it because
it was expected of him, I
was not really sure it was
the thing for me.
?But I could see the
real desire. He wants to
be the best he can be and
the best he can be is
going to be one of the
best in the world.
?A time of 2:03, 2:04 is
realistic for him. Some of
the stuff that he has done
in training is incredible.
?There is some stuff
we?ve got to add and he
learned a lot of lessons on
Sunday in terms of drinking and water bottles.?
Farah missed his drink
early on at a water
station, picking up the
wrong bottle at the hottest London Marathon on
record before complaining
about staff taking pictures
instead of helping him.

The day after lifting the 2016

the symptoms to lead England

MOHAMMAD AMIR did not travel with Pakistan
for their tour of England after visa problems.
But the Pakistan Cricket Board claim the pace
bowler (below), 26, is expected to fly to London
tomorrow once the visa has been granted.
PCB spokesperson Amjad Bhatti said: ?Amir
could not travel with the team. There?s some
procedural issue which I hope will be resolved.?
It has been reported that Amir had applied for
a longer term spouse visa as his wife is a British
national which could lead to him
getting a UK passport.
During Pakistan?s last tour of
England two years ago, Amir ?
banned for five years for spot-fixing in

EXCLUSIVE by JORDAN DAVIES
SOUTHAMPTON star Sofiane Boufal has
been banished to train on his own after a
massive dressing-room bust-up with boss
Mark Hughes.
Sub Boufal, 24, sent Hughes into a rage by
refusing his request to warm-up during Saints? 3-2
Premier League defeat at home to Chelsea
earlier this month.
Club insiders say new boss Sparky
threw a water bottle across the St
Mary?s changing room while giving
Boufal a post-match dressing down.
The midfielder, once Saints? record
signing, has not been in the squad
for the South Coast strugglers? last
two matches, a dour 0-0 draw at
Leicester and Sunday?s 2-0 FA Cup
semi-final loss to Chelsea.
Hughes claimed he was suffering
with ?illness? but Boufal yesterday
posted a picture on his Instagram
page, looking fit and
healthy in the sunshine.
Under
the
picture
Boufal wrote, ?Have a
good week? with an emoji
of a smiley face wearing
sunglasses.
The Moroccan international has flopped since
Saints paid French club
Lille �million for his
services in summer 2016.
He has managed only
four goals in 59 appearances as Saints have been
sucked into the drop zone.
The club are four points
adrift of safety with just
four games left. They will be desperate to sell
Boufal in the summer ? especially if they go
down ? as he is one of their highest earners
on around �,000 a week.
Leicester boss Claude Puel, who brought
the player to St Mary?s before being axed by
Saints, remains an admirer.
Since

Short for running the club
into the ground.
The former defender,
who spent 12 years at Sunderland, said: ?You have to
look at the very top. In
Ellis Short they have someone in charge who does
not want to be there.
?You also have to question the recruitment too.
They?ve brought in players
who are not good enough.
?It?s awful that they?re
going down. They need to
put a big plan in place.?

AN Everton win, a Theo
Walcott goal ? at this
rate they will even be
chanting Sam Allardyce?s
name as well.
OK, that last one was
pushing the boundaries just
a little too much, but in the
land of the unlikely those
first two will do for now.
Three games ? and a
whole load of vitriol
and abuse aimed at
the manager ? had
passed
since
the
Toffees
last managed
a victory.
More than
two months had
passed
since
�million
buy
Walcott?s one goalscoring game ? a
double
to
see
off
Leicester.
So how welcome both were
last night and they even
moved Everton up to eighth
in the Premier League.
But it was never going to
be remotely enough to stop
those hard-nosed Bluenoses
from letting Allardyce know
what they thought of him.
Big Sam has been about as
welcome in these parts as a
Manchester City team bus
across Stanley Park.
Never
mind
ill-planned
e-mail questionnaires from
blundering marketing men,
the banners said it all here ?
notably the one screaming
?Our Survey Says Get Out Of
Our Club.?
When the Goodison gaffer
used his programme notes to
talk
of
the
?intoxicating
Goodison atmosphere of a
night game? ? he at least got
the toxic part right.
So how welcome it was for
him to end a run of three
winless games with three
points ? even if they mean
little in the general scheme
of the season as a whole.
They came courtesy of
Walcott?s right boot and it
was somehow fittingly ironic
that they also came after an
initial dodgy control and
slice of good luck.
Yannick
Bolasie?s
huge,
hooked delivery into the
penalty area was no more
than hopeful at best.
Walcott?s first touch was
shocking, but when the ball
bounced
back
off
Cenk
Tosun?s shin, he had the
presence of mind to lift his
shot over Martin Dubravka
into the roof of the net.
In terms of possession, it
probably
ensured
a
fair
result. Although in terms of
chances ? clear ones at least
? that is doubtful.
Indeed,
if
sub
Dwight
Gayle had been on the pitch
a little longer and adjusted
to the pace of things, he
would have levelled a quarter
of an hour after Walcott?s
50th-minute strike.
Instead,
with
the
ball
bouncing awkwardly in the
box, Gayle could only pull
his effort over and the
chance was gone.
Newcastle
blew
another
gilt-edged opportunity when
Jordan Pickford fluffed a
clearance and Ayoze Perez
failed to deliver a simple
pass that would have given

SALAH TO SCORE
THE FIRST GOAL
AGAINST ROMA
IN CHAMPS LGE
WHEN you have got Mohamed Salah in
your team anything is possible.
Liverpool?s king of the Kop was crowned
PFA Player of the Year on Sunday after
bagging 41 goals this season ? and now he
is out to land a dagger in Roman hearts.
The Egyptian will be hoping to add to his
tally of nine Champions League goals this
term against his old side Roma.
Salah?s hot streak of nine goals in his last
six games also makes him favourite with
Sun Bets to open the scoring at 12/5.
Jurgen Klopp will deploy his attacking
legion of Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto
Firmino hoping for a repeat of the first-leg
devastation against Man City last time out.
Firmino has also got nine in Europe this
season while Mane has seven and we?ve got
all three to score or assist anytime at 11/4.
The Reds have hit six goals in the first 15
minutes this term. Sun Bets offer 11/4 for
them to win the opening quarter of an hour.
Roma overturned a three-goal deficit in
their quarter-final with Barcelona and
Eusebio Di Francesco?s side are 5/1 with
Sun Bets to win just their second Champions League away tie in 15 attempts.
If they do it, it is likely to be thanks to
Edin Dzeko, who scored twice in the 3-3
draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in
October. Sun Bets have the Bosnian at 6/1
to score first and 17/10 to notch anytime.
Tomorrow, Bayern Munich will be out for
revenge against the self-titled kings of
Europe, Real Madrid, after losing 6-3 on
aggregate in last year?s quarters.
But Cristiano Ronaldo is in devastating
form with 15 goals in Europe this season.
The Portuguese Exocet missile is 9/2 to
score two or more goals and 18/1 to bag a
hat-trick with Sun Bets.
If you fancy Bayern?s Colombian talisman
James Rodriguez to score or assist against
his parent club, he is 8/11 with Sun Bets.

CHELSEA and Manchester
United fans joined forces
to slam the FA over ticket
prices for next month?s
Cup final.
Top-price
seats
for
the
Wembley showdown on May 19
will cost �5 ? more than 80
per cent up on the prices for
last weekend?s two semi-finals.
Supporters of both clubs took
to social media to brand FA
chiefs ?an absolute disgrace?
and ?scandalous?.
And Dave Chidgey, chairman
of
the
Chelsea
Supporters?
Trust, told SunSport: ?This is
obscene, absolutely obscene.
?The FA are profiteering from
fans. It?s as simple as that.
?It?s the sort of thing you
expect from the Premier League
and the clubs, to a degree.
?But for the FA to charge
these prices when they are
supposed to understand the

The semi-final tickets ranged

officials pointed out that the

available to Saints fans and all
in the bottom pricing tier.

the

Ambler explained:
?The
Emirates
FA
Cup semi-finals and
final are some of the
most prestigious events in the
sporting calendar and these
new prices are in line with
many of these events.
?It?s
always

met

representatives from all four
semi-finalists last week when a
compromise was made over
some prices.
It means � off the price of
the two top category tickets for
under-16s and OAPs, with �
off the other two pricing tiers.
He also pledged the FA would
consider
introducing
family
areas in the east and west
stands in future and potentially
placing the second category
tickets behind the goals.
The FA believe the
concession
decision
shows they are willing
to listen to concerns
of fans.
But Chidgey added:
?It is laudable the
FA puts their money
into grass-roots football but they should
be thinking about the
welfare of fans as well.
?We?re not daft. The FA
were never going to change
their minds on the general
pricing policy.
?But we were not consulted
before prices were announced.
?They just went and did it.
That?s made us very cross.?

Stones had been widely
praised for his development under Guardiola but
the City boss now wants
to sign another centrehalf this summer to
compete with injury-prone
skipper Vincent Kompany,
Nicolas
Otamendi
and
Laporte.
As Stones approaches
his 24th birthday next
month, it is understood
that Guardiola does not
feel he has improved
sufficiently to make him a
first-team regular.
With City insisting on
recouping most of the
�.5million they laid out
to sign him from Everton
two years ago, and Stones
earning
�0,000
per
week, few clubs would be
able to afford him.
But Arsenal are in the
hunt for a centre-back
and could be interested
once
Arsene
Wenger?s
successor is named.
And Liverpool, who have
money to burn after the
�5m January sale of
Philippe Coutinho, may
also be keen.
City are now scouring
the European market for
available centre-backs, as
well as their No 1 summer
priority ? the signing of
a defensive midfielder.
Stones has not started a
Premier League match
since January, although
City say he has been out
with an adductor muscle
injury for the past few
weeks.
England boss Gareth
Southgate is a huge fan of
Stones ? and will start
him at the World Cup
despite his lack of football
with City.
But the player now
knows he will have to
move on in order to
secure regular first-team
action next season.

HOME BOYS . . . Ox, Hendo and Milner with Lovren
Dave Kidd
CHIEF SPORTS WRITER
AS the Three Lions
prepare for a World Cup
with a supposed lack of
midfield quality, three
Englishman are heading
into
the
Champions
League final.
Jordan
Henderson,
James Milner and Alex
Oxlade-Chamberlain were
the trio who played such
key roles in Liverpool?s
early obliteration of Manchester City at Anfield
earlier this month.
And tonight they will
be charged with performing the same job on
Roma in the semi-final.
A front three from
Egypt,
Senegal
and
Brazil may be earning
the loudest plaudits but
Jurgen Klopp?s Liverpool
are built on unashamedly
English foundations.
While it?s fashionable
to sneer at English footballers, Reds chief Klopp
is not joining in.
The German insisted:
?If you have two players
at the same level and
one is English and the
other is from somewhere
else, I always go for the
English guy. They keep
the mood good and feel
the club?s history.
?We have fantastic guys
from all over the world
. . . but the English guys
lead the group.?
Henderson
?
who
could end up captaining
England in Russia and
Liverpool in Kiev ? has
developed
an
unfussy
sense of authority as a
footballer and as a man.
And Henderson says he
owes a lot to Klopp. The
27-year-old said: ?He?s
one of the best managers
in the world.
?Tactically, that goes
without saying. Off the
field, he?s a fantastic
human and he has a
great passion for football.
?He always looks for
more. I feel I have
improved a lot since he
came to the club.?
Alongside
Henderson,
the Ox is beginning to
flourish ? and it is a
damning indictment of
Arsene Wenger?s waning
powers that he seems to
have developed further in
eight
months
under
Klopp than in six years
at the Emirates.
When he hit a belting
second goal during that
blitz
of
City,
Klopp
demanded to know why
he didn?t score more
often. He is being pushed
on Merseyside in a way
he never was at Arsenal.
England boss Gareth
Southgate
was
openly
sceptical when told the
24-year-old was heading
to Liverpool as a central
midfielder, insisting he
saw him as a wideman.
Now
the
ex-Gunner
may end up partnering
Henderson in the centre
of the park in Russia.
After a difficult start
at
Anfield,
OxladeChamberlain is proving
himself
centrally
and
nobody is laughing at his
�million fee any more.
And then there?s the
nation?s
favourite
pitpony, Milner. When he
retired from international
duty at Euro 2016, there
was no mourning.
Yet this most derided
of footballers ?? ridiculed
on Twitter but happier
than most to laugh about
himself ? is belatedly
earning appreciation.
The
?boring
James
Milner? image originally
came about because of
the teetotaller?s solid but
unspectacular style ? yet
his sale once led to Kevin
Keegan leaving Newcastle
in a fit of pique.
There has always been
much to admire about
this
most
typically
English player.
And another big performance against Roma?s
experienced midfield trio
of Daniele De Rossi,
Radja Nainggolan and
Kevin Strootman tonight
might
leave
Southgate
asking him to reverse his
international retirement.
Just as Milner?s natural
soulmate,
Sweden?s
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, has
done . . .
CITY GREATS IN REVENGE PLOT
ALEKSANDAR KOLAROV is on
a revenge mission to dump
Liverpool out of the Champions
League.
The former Manchester City star
could
have
been
making
an
emotional return to the Etihad for
tonight?s semi-final, first leg.
But Jurgen Klopp?s troops spoiled that
fairytale by pulling off a shock quarterfinal win against Pep Guardiola?s men.
And that means Roma tough guy
Kolarov and pal Edin Dzeko, another
City great, will have vengeance on their
minds when they walk out at Anfield.
Kolarov said: ?It would have been a
huge thing for Edin and myself to have
returned to the Etihad with Roma and I
thought City would beat Liverpool.
?But now we have the chance as former City players to get some kind of
revenge. We?ve had plenty of messages
By MARTIN
BLACKBURN
from City fans asking us to do that and
we?ll be trying our best, I can assure you
of that.?
Kolarov, 32, can expect even more flak
from Liverpool supporters when they
learn that the Serb gave pride of place
to an EVERTON shirt in his locker at
City?s training ground.
Kolarov was affectionately known as
?Herbert? by City?s long-serving former
kitman Les Chapman.
So when the left-back was warming up
before a game at Goodison several years
ago, something caught his eye.
Chapman recalled: ?Aleks came dashing over to me and said ?Chappy, you
have to get me that guy?s shirt ? he?s
called Herbert?. I wasn?t aware of an
Everton player called Herbert. But then I
looked and it was Tony Hibbert.
