KEEP HIM CAGED
JUDGES BLOCK R
NO TAXI FOR
By TOM WELLS, Chief Reporter
and HARRY COLE
JUSTICE Secretary David
Gauke was clinging to his
job last night after judges
overturned a Parole Board
decision to free black cab
rapist John Worboys.
The board?s chairman Nick
Hardwick resigned 30 minutes
before the three judges made
public their ruling that he and
his colleagues had failed to
take into account dozens of
other crimes that Worboys was
suspected of.
Mr Hardwick had been told by
Mr Gauke that the ruling made his
position ?untenable?.
But Mr Gauke was himself facing
calls to resign for refusing to challenge the decision to free Worboys.
When news of Worboys? impending freedom was first revealed Mr
Gauke suggested he would mount a
court challenge.
He then did a U-turn ? claiming
if he led a judicial review on
behalf of Worboys? victims it had
?no reasonable prospect of success?.
Critics said the Justice Secretary
had allowed his department?s lawyers to overrule him. One Tory MP
said Mr Gauke had been ?weak
and pathetic? ? adding: ?He showed
no leadership at all, he allowed
himself to be rolled by officials.?
Yesterday?s High Court ruling was
a landmark legal victory for the
two victims who launched the legal
challenge ? and The Sun who
joined forces with them to fight for
Press freedom.
One of the women, known only
as DSD, punched the air when the
judges? ruling was read.
The mum, drugged and attacked
by Worboys in 2003, said: ?I?m
thrilled and at the same time very
angry. Thrilled that he?ll stay in
prison but angry it has had to
come to court.
?I and the other victims think he
is still a serious danger to women
and he should not be allowed out.
??He is not somebody who should
be out on the streets.
??Justice has been served today
but at the same time the system
has failed the victims.?
The court also upheld a historic
legal challenge from The Sun over
the secrecy surrounding the reasons
for the Parole Board?s decision.
The Justice Secretary?s lawyers
had ?robustly defended? rules that
stopped any details of the board?s
hearings being disclosed.
But the judges yesterday said
those rules were unlawful because
they breached basic principles of
open justice.
The Sun?s victory means there
will now be new guidelines that
allow the public to know why
potentially dangerous prisoners are
being released.
Worboys, 60, will remain in
Wakefield Prison, West Yorks,
until a new panel hears
his case for parole. That
will be at least three
months away ? and
this time a judge will
be in charge.
His victims

SIR BRIAN LEVESON
HIGH COURT JUDGE
faces a new Met Police investigation
into attack claims from at least ten
new victims.
The second victim who bought
the challenge, known only as NBV,
said after the ruling: ?The constant
reminders in the news have been
distressing and made me want to
hide. News that we have won this
case finally brought huge relief.
?I can get on with my life again
without looking over my shoulder.?
DSD added: ?It is the whole system that has failed.
?I feel like I have been let down
at every step.
?It is wrong that we have been
put in this situation.
?As victims we should have been
supported and not having to fight
every step of the way in court.?
Worboys, who prowled the streets
in a black cab looking for victims,
was convicted of 19 serious sexual
offences in 2009.
The Parole Board cleared him for
release after he had served just
eight years and eight months.
Its panel of three experts, including two women, said he was safe to
be freed.
The decision sparked public fury,
and the two victims and The Sun
launched their legal challenges. A
judge halted Worboys? release on
January 27, pending a full hearing.
Yesterday the three High Court
judges issued a 91-page judgment
that
found
the
Parole
Board
panel acted unlawfully by failing to
properly investigate the case of
Worboys, who now calls himself
John Radford.
It noted it was ?exceptional? for a
Category A prisoner to be freed
without first serving time in a
lower category prison and open jail.
In 2016/17, just six Category As
were given their freedom straight
from a top security jail.
The judges, including Sir Brian
Leveson, said Worboys had performed a ?dramatic? about-turn by
admitting his guilt just nine months
before he became eligible for
parole. His tearful confession, to a
prison psychologist, came after six
years of ?adamantly maintaining his
innocence?. The judges said: ?The

Three psychologists who assessed
Worboys failed to ?thoroughly?
probe if he was being ?open and

The Parole Board panel and the
lawyer sitting on it were criticised
after ?inconsistencies? in Worboys?
evidence were not exposed.
The judges said the decision to
free the cabbie, suspected of dozens
more rapes for which he was never
prosecuted, had been ?surprising
and concerning?.
They said the remarks of the
judge who sentenced Worboys,
police reports and suggestions that
he had attacked at least 105 victims
should have been weighed up by
the panel.
They said: ?We are driven to
conclude that the Parole Board
ought to have carried out, or have
instigated the carrying out of, further inquiry.?
The judges concluded: ?It follows
that the release direction must be
quashed. The Parole Board said it
will not challenge the decision.

WE GOT
SECRECY
LIFTED
By TOM WELLS
THE Sun?s landmark legal bid to reveal
details of the secret decision that
threatened to free rapist John Worboys
began in January.
We wanted access to the Parole
Board?s reasons ? and why a threeperson panel suddenly found him fit
for release from a top-security jail.
But the board?s draconian ?Rule 25?
barred any of the information from
ever being made public.
Our lawyers began judicial review
proceedings, joining forces with two
brave victims of Worboys already fighting to block his release.
After a costly battle at the High
Court, Sir Brian Leveson, who chaired
the inquiry into Press standards, and
two other senior judges yesterday
backed us.
In a historic legal ruling, they found
Rule 25 breached basic principles of
open justice.
They ruled Justice Secretary David
Gauke had no power to apply a blanket
rule of secrecy to the Board?s decisions. It means he will now be forced
to draw up new guidelines.
The ruling will finally give the public
a greater right to know why dangerous
cons are set free.
Last night Gavin Millar QC, who led
our legal challenge, said: ?The Sun
and its readers are now entitled to
answers to their questions about the
decision to release Worboys.
?And victims have got the case sent
back to the Board to be properly
decided. The Sun has struck a huge
blow for Press freedom and the public?s right to know.?
A spokesman for The Sun said last
night: ?First and foremost
this is a day for the victims,
who have fought bravely to
take this case to court. But
it is also a victory for transparency and for the free
Press in a matter of profound public interest.
?Today?s ruling is a landmark judgment in favour of
open justice and will allow
Parole Board decisions to
be subject to the scrutiny
they deserve. This case has
shown all too clearly the
value of that work.?

THE shocking blunders
that saw John Worboys
declared fit for release
were laid bare in a High
Court judgment yesterday.

Parole Board members did not properly quiz the rapist
about his crimes.

he may have attacked

boys? account of his crimes ?to
any extent, if at all? and took
him entirely at ?face value?;
l SNUBBED warnings from cops,
prison and probation officials that
Worboys still posed a ?high risk
of harm? and should not move
from a Category A prison;
l IGNORED vital evidence including the trial judge?s remarks that
he had used a ?web of deceit? to
ensnare ?young, intelligent and
sensible women?;
l OVERLOOKED key police reports;
l OVERRULED a report that said
it would take a ?brave Parole
Board? to consider switching
Worboys from a Category A jail
straight to an open prison;
l SPURNED a report by the rapist?s probation officer at Wakefield
prison that said the jail?s senior
psychologist ?did not support the
recommendation? to move Worboys or release him on licence;
l DISCOUNTED findings of a civil
case brought by some of his victims despite claims in it that he
had attacked at least 105 women;
l HAILED Worboys for being
?open and honest? and praised
him for taking ?full responsibility? for his crimes.
In their judgment, the three
judges led by Sir Brian Leveson
backed a judicial review of the
decision to free Worboys brought
by two of his victims, who cannot
be identified.
The judges upheld their challenge: ?On the basis that it should
have undertaken further inquiry
into the circumstances of his
offending and, in particular, the
extent to which the limited way in
which he has described his offending may undermine his overall
credibility and reliability. That is
so even in relation to the offences
of which he is convicted, let alone
any other offending.?
Parole Board hearings are held
in secret and the details behind a
decision are normally kept secret.
But the full background to the
Worboys scandal ? dating back to
2011 ? was revealed yesterday.
It showed how the black cab
rapist cynically played the system
and attempted to con psychologists during his bid for freedom.
He claimed to have found God
and only applied for parole after
his attempts to overturn his conviction on appeal were rejected.
Worboys had pleaded not guilty
at trial, but was convicted in
2009 of 19 ?meticulously planned?
sexual offences, including one
rape and four sexual assaults.
Between October 2006 and February 2008, he plied his victims

Criminal Cases Review Commission, claiming he had been the
victim of a miscarriage of justice.
A prison psychologist noted in
June 2013 that Worboys ? by now
using the name John Radford ?
still maintained his innocence.
In January 2015 experts said
there had been ?no reduction in
risk?. But in May that year he
poured his heart out, telling psychologists he ?always felt guilty?.
In an extraordinary confession,
Worboys said he wanted to ?take
responsibility?. He blamed his
attacks on alcohol and the stress
of the break-up of his marri-
age. One psychologist noted how
he ?appeared nervous throughout,
on occasion becoming tearful?.
But the timing of his admission
was
significant
?
just
nine
months before his eight-year tariff expired, which meant he was
nearly able to apply for parole.
But his change of heart was
not enough to convince the Parole
Board in September 2015. It
rejected the notion of even allowing him to move to an open jail.
Worboys then threw himself
into rehabilitation in jail. He
completed a sex offender scheme
as his legal team eyed his next
parole date of September 2017.
A Prison Service report in February 2017 found him a ?high risk
of serious harm, but low risk of
reoffending?. But it recommended
his security category be reviewed.
In July, then-Justice Secretary
David Lidington ruled Worboys
should remain a Category A prisoner. During interviews with psychologists that followed, Worboys
told one that his offending started
in 2006 but another that it was
almost a year earlier ? inconsistencies the Parole Board missed.
The first psychologist was asked
to assess again, and said Worboys
had ?remorse and shame for his
offending?. They added he could
be ?safely managed? in an open
prison or if released on licence.
Despite prison and public protection officials disagreeing with
that verdict, a Parole Board panel
met last November and on Boxing
Day recommended he be freed.
Reversing the decision yesterday,
the judges noted: ?It is fair reading of the notes of the hearing
that the credibility and reliability
of Mr Radford?s account was not
probed to any extent, if at all.?
tom.wells@the-sun.co.uk
THREE psychologists played
key roles in clearing the way
for Worboys to go free.
Two remain unknown, but
one is said to be Dr Jackie
Craissati ? an expert who
has been accused of consistently urging leniency for sex
offenders.
Dr Craissati allegedly compiled a report that played a
key
role
in
the
Parole
Board?s panel recommending
Worboys? release.
She has previously supported
freedom
for
sex
offenders, arguing that they
should be ?managed in the
community? instead of being
locked up.
The identities of the threestrong panel that ultimately
recommended that the black
cab rapist should go free
remain unknown.
But it is understood they
included two women, including the chairwoman.
Ironically, the High Court
judges who overturned the
Parole
Board?s
decision
yesterday included two key
figures in the inquiry into
Press standards.
Sir Brian Leveson, who
chaired the inquiry, led the
three judges yesterday.
He was joined by Mr Justice Jay, better known as the
lead inquiry counsel during
the Leveson hearings held in
2011 and 2012.
Nick Hardwick resigned as
Parole
Board
chairman
before the judges? ruling
emerged yesterday.
WARNING ON 6
MORE EX-CONS
THE cases of six high-risk cons
recently freed from jails were being
urgently probed last night.
The Parole Board told the High
Court hearing into John Worboys that
half a dozen Category A lags had been
freed straight from prison between
2016 and 2017.
But the figures sparked an inquiry
from Justice Secretary David Gauke.
A Ministry of Justice spokesman
said: ?The Parole Board told the
court that six Category A offenders
had been released in the year to April
By TOM WELLS
2017. The Secretary of State has
asked the department to verify that
there are in fact six cases of Category
A prisoners that were released ? and
to check if there were any concerns
in those cases and in any other
release decisions from Category A
since (April 2017).?
The figures are understood to have
been compiled by the Parole Board.
Officials could ask the Board to
vary the licence conditions of any
offenders that raised concerns.

MONEY BACK FOR RECYCLING PLAN
THAT WILL CHANGE ALL OUR LIVES
SAYS
VEND AWAY
. . . a recycler
racks up the
credit in
Oregon, US
Win for justice
THE Worboys ruling is a monumental victory
for the victims who bravely challenged his
parole ? and for women everywhere who
will remain safe from a remorseless and
patently still dangerous predator.
It is a triumph too for The Sun, for
Press freedom and public interest journalism, that our battle to end the secrecy
around parole decisions was vindicated.
Sacked Parole Board chief Nick
Hardwick is the scapegoat for a case
catastrophically bungled over ten years.
But Justice Secretary David Gauke
has been worse than useless, idiotically
talking tough over challenging Worboys? freedom before cravenly bottling
out on advice from nit-picking lawyers.
He was wrong. As we all now know,
the Parole Board decision WAS indefensible ? and scandalously negligent.
The three-strong panel subjected
Worboys to a brief soft-soap interview,
gullibly swallowed every word about his
regret, ignored expert warnings about
the continuing risk and failed even to
consider the multitude of suspected
attacks beyond his convictions.
None of this pitiful trio should be
entrusted with another parole hearing.
Their ineptitude was the final insult to
victims after a decade of blunders. No
wonder Jeremy Corbyn was quiet about
it yesterday ? his Shadow Brexit Secretary Keir Starmer is up to his neck in it.
Police handed scores of Worboys cases
to the CPS, then under Starmer as
Director of Public Prosecutions, but
they proceeded with only a few.
The rapist?s resulting eight-year
minimum jail term was derisory ? but
Starmer seemed satisfied. When the
Met offered up more cases, the CPS
decided they weren?t worth pursuing.
Justice has at last been done, for now.
Worboys must be kept off the streets
for many more years.
Thanks to The Sun, a new parole board
considering freeing him, or any serious
criminal, will need to justify it to the public.
All-talk Gauke
DAVID Gauke spectacularly fouled up his
first big call as Justice Secretary. He
needs to learn fast.
He was always the calm, safe pair of
hands. But playing safe isn?t always right.
It was suicidal to U-turn over challenging Worboys? parole. Gauke should
have ignored the advice and taken the
victims? side. What was there to lose?
Contrast him with Michael Gove, a
dynamic and imaginative reformer in
every department he has run.
At Environment, he has already
brought about several major changes,
from banning toxic microbeads to
announcing the massive new deposit
return scheme on bottles.
Governing is not about damage limitation and surrendering to civil service
negativity. It is about effecting change.
Gove learns a brief, decides what he
wants to achieve and boldly goes for it.
Other senior Tories, not least Gauke,
should take note.
HOW IT
WORKS
!
It?s the vend
of the world
as we throw it
WE have all been asked to show a
bit of bottle in tackling the waste
plastic mountain.
Environment Secretary Michael Gove
yesterday signalled a brave new world by
planning to turn BACK the clock and
revive deposit return schemes for drink
bottles. Shoppers will be asked to bring
in used plastic and glass bottles, as well
as aluminium cans, for cashback.
Good plan. Well done, everybody.
But it could mean paying up to 22p
more per drink, redeemable only once
you track back to the shop and feed
bottles and cans into a ?reverse vending
machine?.
Similar schemes are going great guns
in Europe and beyond. In dutiful
Norway, people recycle 97 per cent of
their plastic bottles.
But will us Brits be up for this planetsaving faff?
It is a big ask. We currently recycle
three in five of the 13billion plastic drink
bottles we get through a year, plus 70
per cent of aluminium cans.
The rest are packed off to belching
incinerator plants, dumped in landfill or
left to pollute our green and pleasant
land ? and our seas.
Mr Gove wants us to do better. A lot
better. He said: ?We have already cut
plastic bag use and now we want to
take action on plastic bottles to clean up
our oceans.?
His plans, due for consultation later
this year, could be brought in as early
as next spring and signal the end of the
throwaway culture as we know it ? for
drinks containers, at least.
He would have us radically change our
habits. But we will not be alone. Around
20 countries are already doing their bit
with similar schemes.
Mr Gove?s consultations will ask which
of these varying schemes might work
best for the UK.
The
frontrunner
so
far
is
the
Norwegian
model.
Since
1992,
all
producers and importers of drinks sold
By
GRANT ROLLINGS
in cans or one-use bottles have been
invited to voluntarily register for the
national deposit scheme. If they do not,
a tax is placed on each bottle and can
not recycled.
When a shopper buys a drink in the
scheme, they pay a ?deposit? of 21p for a
container bigger than half a litre, or 8p
for a smaller one.
Pocket money
Once their contents have been gulped
down, customers get their deposit back
by putting their container in machines
that can be found in most shops, kiosks
and petrol stations.
The deposit comes back as a coupon
to spend in the same store the customer
bought their drink from. That is good
news for corner-shop owners, driving up
customer footfall.
Afterwards, the empty bottles are
crushed, sorted, cleaned, dried and
shredded into flakes to be formed into
new containers. Cans are melted down

and turned into fresh aluminium sheets.
If all that sounds like a hassle, we used
to do this all the time.
In the Sixties, shops routinely paid
customers to return bottles before they
were sent to the bottling firms for
cleaning and reuse. Kids would collect
littered bottles to earn pocket money ?
and homeless people did similar.
Plastic made this a thing of the past,
as so few glass bottles were returned
that the schemes became uneconomical.
But it could soon be possible to make
serious cash by going through bins.
In America, ?canners? root through
garbage for discarded items that can be
recycled. It can prove very lucrative.
In New York, Conrad Cutler, 26, rakes
in ten million dollars a YEAR with his
business collecting cans and bottles.
If you lack the stomach to root
through bins, you may be pleased to
know Mr Gove?s plans could save your
local council some money.
They spend millions a year clearing
rubbish from our streets and hedges,
with drinks containers the top scourge.
Pollsters reckon Brits have it in them
to answer Mr Gove?s call.
A YouGov survey found 74 per cent of
us would return drink containers for the
promise of 10p ? while the 5p plastic
bag tax has led to an 85 per cent drop
in the number used.
Tesco has backed the idea of a deposit
return scheme and Iceland recently said
it would go plastic-free on its own
products.
Emma Bridgewater, president of the
Campaign to Protect Rural England,
said: ?This is the breakthrough we have
been
waiting
for.
We
have
been
campaigning for a deposit return scheme
for almost ten years. This victory is an
enormous leap forward.
?Our countryside, oceans and wildlife
have long been victims of our obsession
with single-use bottles and cans. Many
end up damaging our environments and
killing wildlife. They are a shocking
waste of valuable materials.?
SAVING THE EARTH: HOW IT WORKS IN OTHER COUNTRIES
SWEDEN
Recycling rate: 82.7 per cent

schemes since 1994. Any firm
serving or importing drinks must

GERMANY

Germans have returned plastic
bottles for cash since 1991 and
an official deposit system
started in 2003. Reverse vending
in supermarkets gives receipts
to exchange for cash. A crate of
empty beer bottles pays �30.
Saskatchewan are keenest ?

members of the Jeremy
Corbyn fan club.
MORE stuff to worry about.
Apparently the insides of
rubber ducks harbour huge
amounts of horrible germs and
fungi. Stuff that could make you
really ill. If you licked the inside of
your rubber duck. So that?s
bathtimes ruined, then.
This was all discovered by
some scientists. As part of a bet
down the pub, I think.
?I bet you a monkey I could get
WE just about deserved to beat Italy.
Trouble is, at 1-0 a game is never safe.
And Italy are no great shakes these
days, either. I still think we?re missing
something in midfield ? and I think
the answer is Newcastle?s Jonjo
Shelvey, right.
He may be a bit deranged, but we could
do with a bit of that, frankly. He?s been the
best English midfielder over the last half
of the season. Certainly better than Dele
Alli. How come no call-up?
Greedy bosses label
Brits lazy while they
get fatter on profits
THE bosses are whining again.
Ever since we voted for Brexit,
they?ve been at it. Moaning about
how we need more immigration
to create an economy which
is
vibrant!
And
diverse!
And exciting!
Yeah, right. We know exactly
what you mean by that.
They?re moaning at the
moment in a report commissioned
by
the
Home
Secretary, Amber Rudd.
Their chief complaint is
that YOU are useless ? not
worth giving a job to.
Lazy. Untrained.
They say that workers
from the European Union
have
a
?consistently
strong work ethic? and
are ?often better qualified?. So let?s get things
straight.
The
reasons
our bosses prefer to
employ Poles, Romanians and Lithuanians is
very
straightforward.
Breast
of luck, girls
LOOKING forward to The Sun?s Bust In
Britain contest.
Jasmine McCloude, right, took the crown
last year, and the standard was so high that I
think it will take something exceptional to win
this time around.
Frankly, I?m not convinced that two breasts will
be enough. Five or six should do the trick, a
couple at the front, a couple at the
back and maybe one or two
standing pertly on the head.
BUST IN
BRITAIN

They are a lot, lot cheaper. As the report
makes clear, workers from these European countries are typically paid 27 per
cent less than British workers.
And the big companies could get away
with this appalling discrimination because
it?s all part of the crooked
EU deal.
That?s
why
we
have
80,000 Eastern Europeans
working in agriculture.
Because the farmers
here can pay them
next to nowt. And
many
immigrants
will put up with
living
ten
to
a
room in some ratinfested
hovel.
Because
they
know it?s only for
the short term.
They don?t have
mortgages
over
here.
Their
overheads are low
to verging on
non-existent.
And that?s why
we?ve also got
150,000 immigrants working in our food
industries. Because, again, they can be
paid two-fifths of bugger all.
So when the bosses talk about their
superior work ethic, this is what they
really mean: ?Poles and Romanians are
happy to work for a pittance and we can
exploit them to make lots more money
for ourselves.
?We rather approve of this arrangement
and would prefer that it continued.?
It really is as simple as that.
Quite rightly, British workers won?t put
up with the terms and conditions and
rates of pay the employers are offering in
low-skilled jobs.
And the notion that having a labour
force which will accept 27 per cent less
in wages doesn?t depress rates of pay
in the UK is absurd.
Living in conditions
unfit for an animal
Of course it does. The free movement
of labour from abroad has meant lots of
jobs for the very poorest of British people
now pay a lot less than they did before.
And don?t bring up that old ?better
qualified? rubbish. What qualifications do
you need to pick a Brussels sprout or put
some ham in a sandwich?
When we voted to take our country
back, it was for the good of the many, not
the good of the few.
First and foremost that means higher
wages for the poor.
And an end to the exploitation of
Eastern Europeans who end up living in
conditions unfit for an animal.
It also meant that where there is a
skills shortage, companies should be
training British people for the jobs.
Instead of whining that they need
a barrel-load of Romanians at three
quarters of the price.
Our big companies have had it too easy
for too long. Continuing to import foreign
labour is utterly unsustainable.
It?s time the bosses got real.
EVIL Islamist Umar Haque is now
starting a 25-year jail sentence. I?d
marginally prefer it if he was blasted a
few thousand miles via a cannon to the
Muslim country of his choice.
He had been planning 30 terror
attacks in London, to murder innocent
people. Haque, right,
hoped to find plenty
of recruits for these
missions
among
young
worshippers
at the Ripple Road
Mosque in Barking,
East London. He was

JONG-UN

psycho Kim Jong-un is at

Announced he wanted
better relations with
South Korea. And said
that he?d scrap his nukes
if negotiations went OK.
Not only that, but he?s
meeting Donald Trump
soon.
And here?s the thing.
How much of Kim?s better
behaviour is down to
Trump getting tough with
him? Unlike the useless
Obama.
In foreign policy, Trump
has been a far less
dangerous president than
any of the preceding four.
And more successful, too.
If he succeeds in
negotiating away Kim?s
nuclear arsenal, won?t he

Not your ordinary

No, indeed. Glad you

The party had been considering a

before he was suspended last week.
Ms Shawcroft emailed officials to
suggest the decision be reversed,
insisting the matter was a dispute
between factions rather than antiSemitism, said The Times.
She later admitted she?d not
looked at Mr Bull?s alleged post,
and described her actions as
?misguided?.
Meanwhile,
MP
John Woodcock said he could
quit in protest at Mr Corbyn?s stance on antiSemitism and Russia.

REFERRALS TO
BE AUTOMATIC
By NICK McDERMOTT, Health Editor
GPs must refer all smokers to
cigarette-quitting classes before
they have a non-urgent operation, an NHS watchdog insists.
New guidelines say patients should
be referred for an appointment for
stop-smoking sessions even if they do
not want to attend.
The National Institute for Health and
Care Excellence also said doctors and
nurses should not shy away from advising
patients from quitting for fear of offending.
It said smoking slows down recovery
from non-urgent surgery such as hip or
cataract ops and medics should not miss
the chance to get patients to give it up.
Professor Gillian Leng, the institute?s
deputy chief executive, said: ?GPs should
not underestimate the impact of that
conversation.
The
health
benefit
far
outweighs the risk of offending.
?Obviously you can?t make people go to
stop smoking appointments but it means
they are more likely to take them up.?
Several NHS boards have been accused
of rationing surgery for smokers unless
they agree to quit first.
Prof Leng said she was against restricting access, adding: ?We are not encouraging the NHS to ration surgery. But we
want to see smokers referred first.?

And of 52,238 Chinese tourists required to leave between
April 2015 and March 2016,
there was no departure record

IT?S FLAMIN? BRILLIANT TO
MEET AUSSIE LEGEND RAY
ALF STEWART is a true Aussie legend who?s
made the term ?You flamin? galah? one of the
greatest put-downs on telly.
And yesterday I finally got to meet Home
And Away?s longest-serving cast member
RAY MEAGHER, who has played Alf since
the first episode in 1988.
He stopped by Biz HQ to commemorate my
favourite soap?s 30th anniversary ? just as
his beloved character has been buried alive.
That he survives is not a sure bet, given he
revealed he is currently in negotiations with
bosses regarding a pay rise ? but the
74-year-old insists he is not planning to
retire any time soon.
Ray told me: ?I?m talking to them about
that now. We work 46 weeks of the year with
a break at Christmas and two weeks in July.
?On top of that, they?ve let me take three
or four weeks out in May as well, breaking

continue to do that if I stayed and maybe
stretch those gaps a little bit longer.
?But you know, they?ve got to come back
with a half-decent offer and we?ll see what
happens.?
Ray?s secret of success is never taking a
sick day or turning up late for work once in
30 years ? that?s the type of commitment I
like to see.
But he is not pals with all his younger
co-stars, including ORPHEUS PLEDGER,
above. Ray said: ?Look, I come into work, I
do it and I go home.
?Orpheus is 24 and I?m 74 ? we?re not
going to hang out together.
?We?ve probably got different interests,
but we don?t throw stones at each other as
we walk down the corridor either. It?s a very
friendly relationship when we meet.?

NEIGHBOURS has produced soap royalty
including KYLIE MINOGUE and MARGOT
ROBBIE during its 33-year history.
But now bosses are hoping to persuade a
real royal to appear in the show, and they have
their sights set on PRINCE HARRY, left.
A source revealed: ?Interest in the Royal
Family is huge in Australia, so getting a
young royal on board is a top priority.
?Harry?s Invictus Games is in Sydney
in October so it would be easy for him
to visit Melbourne for a role. And if his
fianc閑 MEGHAN MARKLE joins him,
they would want her too.? I reckon the pair
would love a Ramsay Street barbie . . .
POP PRINCESS KYLIE ON LIFE AFTER CHARLENE
THERE would be no KYLIE MINOGUE,
international superstar, were it not
for her iconic 1980s appearance as
Charlene on Neighbours.
And with her former co-star ANNIE
JONES returning as Plain Jane Super
Brain after 29 years away, it has raised
speculation over whether Australia?s pop
princess could make a TV comeback too.
In tomorrow?s episode of my podcast
The Dan Wootton Interview ? which you

Apple Podcasts ? I broke the news to
her of the momentous soap event.
A delighted Kylie, below with me,
squealed: ?Stop it! This is the best thing
I?ve heard in ages. Oh my God! Did
anyone else know about this? This is
breaking news.?
Kylie didn?t totally shut the door on a
return to the former BBC soap, which

Channel 5, but needs a bit more convinc-

?Never say never about anything, but I
just think it would be a let-down.
?I think Charlene lives in that time
and lives in people?s memories.
?I mean, it hasn?t stopped me being

The victim was said to
have been made to eat a

His alleged abuser was

after a short suspension.
Sources claimed he was

to
another

wore a Nazi costume.
A Jewish community

?It isn?t the first case of

YOU could get paid 22p for
taking back a plastic bottle
under Government plans for
a new recycling incentive.
STILL not ready for the Easter
Bank Holiday weekend?
Don?t worry, you can get a lastminute discount on your chocolate
gifts. Enjoy 15 per cent off at

A similar deposit scheme runs in 19

Sunday.
Customers pay a levy on the bottle and
get the money back when they return it.
But did you know you can already make
money by recycling household rubbish?
We teamed up with thrifty blogger Ricky
Willis, from skintdad.co.uk, to show you how.
He says: ?Most councils come to the roadside to recycle rubbish but you can make
extra cash from your rubbish too.?
Clothes: Whether it is clothes you don?t
like, items the kids have grown out of or outfits that no longer fit, you can make around
50p to 60p per kilo selling on old garments.
Clothesforcash.com is one of the biggest UK
firms but there are many others.
MAKE: The average family makes �.60 for
a big clear out. Do that twice a year and it?s
�.20 to spend on a trip to the cinema.
Cans: It won?t make you rich but you can
cash in between 45p and 60p for each kilo of
cans you collect ? the equivalent of 65 to 70
cans. Find your nearest cash for cans depot at
thinkcans.net/cash-cans/where-get-cash-cans.
MAKE: The average family uses 208 cans a
year. That?s a handy �20 back into your
pocket, which is enough for three own-brand
pizzas from Iceland.
Ink cartridges: More than 65million printer
cartridges are sold each year in the UK but
only 15 per cent are recycled. Instead of
putting them in the free recycling bins at
supermarkets, you could earn up to �for
every cartridge you recycle. You could try
cashforcartridges.co.uk or ink2u.co.uk/empties.
MAKE: The average person with a home
printer uses 12 cartridges a year. That?s �
back to buy a pub meal and a pint.
Wine corks: Pop some cash back into your
pockets ? with 100 corks selling for around �plus postage on eBay.
MAKE: Even if you only collect 100 corks
every 18 months, that is still a free bottle of
wine.
Mobile phones: Old handsets can sell for a
couple of hundred pounds, depending on the
make and model. Clear out your drawers and
make easy money. Try envirofone.com/ and
mazumamobile.com.
MAKE: The average trade-in for a modern,
working handset is �0, enough to cover a
typical contract for five months.

AID CASH FOR EU ?War?
wasted
?TO EASE BREXIT?
THERESA May is risking voters?
fury by offering to keep giving
the EU up to �3billion in aid
cash as a Brexit negotiating pawn.
It would be handed over in
exchange for better single market
access for businesses.
The revelation comes as Mrs May
embarks of a whistle-stop tour of the
UK today to mark a year to go before
the country?s EU exit.
Brexit campaigners have bitterly
criticised the aid payments, administered by Brussels bureaucrats
without British checks.

International Development Secretary, was ?livid? at the

plans. She told The Sun: ?Leaving the
EU means taking back control of our
laws, border and money ? and that
includes aid money. There is no
accountability of how Brussels spends
our development money.?
The UK currently hands over a
tenth of its annual aid pot to the EU.
A Government spokesman said:
?As we?ve repeatedly said, the era
of sending vast amounts of
money to the EU is over.
?Any future co-operation will
depend on what we judge is
value for money for the British
taxpayer
and
what
has
best impact for our development goals.?
AID bosses? �3billion
project to spread world
peace could be making
people?s lives worse, a
probe has found.
The foreign aid watchdog found the Conflict,
Stability and Security
Fund often failed to
document its work in
countries such as Iraq,
Pakistan and Colombia.
This meant it was
impossible to detect if
the
project,
which
accounts for �in every
� of foreign aid
spending, made a difference. It could even
entrench human rights
abuses, said the report.

disorder which impairs
breathing, research shows.
British and US scientists found the first clear
evidence of such a link
with sudden infant death
syndrome (Sids).
They
studied
the
SCN4A gene which helps
regulate
the
muscular
control of breathing.
Defects are linked to a
range of disorders making breathing difficult.
It affects fewer than

gene mutations in four of

MUM FROM � HOME IS GUILTY
Devastated . . Weldins
�0k bill
for family
in insurer
fire denial
By ALEX WEST
A FAMILY whose home
was gutted in a fire face
a bill of �0,000 to
repair it after their insurance company refused to
pay out.
Insurer Ageas said Paul
and Sophie Weldin had
wrongly said their home
had five bedrooms when
it had seven ? a size it
does not cover ? and
declared the policy void.
The house in Uplyme,
Devon,
was
destroyed
when the Weldins and
their four children were
on holiday last April.
Sales
manager
Mr
Weldin, 42, said: ?We are
absolutely devastated.
?We
answered
the
questions
honestly
but
they have washed their
hands of us.?
He said when the family
bought
the
�6
annual policy via Comparethemarket.com
they
didn?t count two small
rooms in the top floor
they used for storage.
When the family took
their complaint to the
Financial
Ombudsman
Service it was rejected.

4 MONTHS OF SEXTS
Ordeal . . Gregory and Kimberley
EXCLUSIVE by NICK PISA
A JILTED Russian model
faked a Sun article to
falsely brand her ex-lover
a pervert during a campaign of harassment.
Irina Fedotova, 33, also
bombarded Gregory Slade
with ?sexually suggestive?
texts and lied that she was
pregnant with his child.
And she called Mr Slade?s new
girlfriend,
heiress
Kimberley
Owen, ?picked up trash? in the
four-month tirade of abuse.
Fedotova had been in an
on-off
relationship
with
Mr
Slade for around two years until
he dumped her last July.
Westminster magistrates heard
the relationship had been ?difficult? with police called to ?some
violent incidents between them?.
Mum-of-one
Fedotova,
who
lives in a �illion house in
Belgravia, West London, continued to send texts to Mr Slade,
despite his pleas for her to stop.
She also turned up uninvited
to his friend?s wedding in France.
Edward Cohen, prosecuting,
said: ?She carried on calling day
and night, often intoxicated,
from withheld numbers.?
Last October, Fedotova
mocked up a Sun newspaper article that claimed
Mr Slade ?was a drug
user that would approach
women for sex?.
Mr Cohen said: ?It was
very disparaging. This was
quite a well crafted article
? and long.? Miss Owen said
it caused concern as it ?must
have taken so much time and
effort to put together?.
In
a
pre-sentence
report,
finance worker Fedotova said she
was ?looking for revenge?.
She admitted harassment at an
earlier hearing and was fined
�0 and �5 in costs. Colin
Knott, defending, said: ?Hell hath
no fury like a woman scorned.
But it?s harassment without violence.?

Polling experts YouGov track
?positivity? towards the biggest
names in showbiz, with scores
ranging from plus 100 to minus 100.
Sir David, 91, is at +83, so he
is nearly universally admired by
the thousands of YouGov members
who rate stars with one of six
emotions
?
from
?really like? down
to ?really don?t like?. YouGov then
averages this into an overall score.
All the data is live, making for
dramatic changes in fortune such
as Ant McPartlin, 42, who fell to -19

Ladies? Night, ITV, 9pm.

including VICTORIA
DERBYSHIRE and MEGAN
MCKENNA, follow in the
footsteps of their male
counterparts by performing
a striptease to raise
awareness for cancer.

RULES?
STRICT product placement
rules at the BBC mean you
won?t see Mick Carter pull a
pint of Foster?s in the Queen
Vic, or start handing out
Nobby?s Nuts.
But when it comes to the
mean streets of Walford it?s a
different story.
In Tuesday?s episode
EastEnders appeared to turn
into an advert for Mercedes as
Jack Branning, played by
SCOTT MASLEN, drove one
round the square. There were
several close-ups of the car?s
logo, before characters
Keegan Baker and Hunter
Owen had a long chat about
the qualities of the car.
They reeled off a string of
stats, including its full name,
top speed and how quickly it
could do 0-60mph.
A source said: ?The closeups were obvious, viewers
were quick to notice them.
?But there are very tight
rules in place to make sure
these things don?t break BBC
guidelines, so bosses are
confident they haven?t
crossed any lines.?
But fans weren?t convinced.
One noted on Twitter: ?Bit of
product placement for Jack?s
sport car.?
Another added: ?Cast
talking about its stats etc?
Pretty sure the BBC isn?t
meant to participate in
advertising??
If the cast start turning up
in new motors I?ll know why.

IN EMMERDALE a desperate
search is launched by Pete
and Rhona when they realise
Ross is missing. He is later
found ? but he has overdosed
and is clinging to life.
Elsewhere, Vanessa?s job
hangs in the balance when a
snake goes missing on the
day of her inspection, Joe
comes clean about his plans
and Brenda is encouraged by
a declaration.
In EASTENDERS, Stacey
remains the target of locals?
anger about the fake death
scam, so she asks them all to
go to the pub so she can
explain.
Meanwhile, Keanu
considers moving into Jay?s
spare room to give him more
privacy with Ingrid, and
Bernadette?s nerves get the
better of her ahead of the
chess competition.

THE cast of
Dawson?s
Creek have got back
together to mark 20
years since the show
launched, and
they?ve hardly aged.
KATIE HOLMES,
JAMES VAN DER
BEEK, JOSHUA
JACKSON and
MICHELLE
WILLIAMS posed for
a magazine cover to
celebrate.
Sadly a reboot of
the show, which ran
from 1998 to 2003, is
off the cards. Creator
Kevin Williamson
said: ?What would a
reunion be? What
would that look like?
Why would you?
? I don?t see it and I
don?t feel it.?
Shame, I
certainly
do.

STREAM OF CASH
DRIES UP QUICKLY
IT?s not just CLAIRE FOY
who?s had her free Netflix
subscription cancelled
after she left hit series
The Crown.
All the streaming ervice?s
top actors, who receive sixmonthly gifted
subscriptions to watch the
programmes. will now have
their freebies terminated by
bosses once
they?ve
finished
filming.
Despite
Netflix raking
in millions of
pounds from their roles, top
talents including Claire and
MATT SMITH won?t be able
to binge on old episodes of
The Crown when they are
next hungover.
A TV insider said: ?It may
seem crazy to the public
bi
NOW
The BBC?s
Generation
Shame
that Netflix seems to be
penny-pinching ?
particularly as it pays
millions to sign up some of
the biggest names in
showbusiness.
?But it?s a mark of how
much it values its product
that it doesn?t want to dish it
out for free.
?Plus, when it is investing
so much into
shows, it
needs to
recoup as
much income
as possible.?
Claire, who
portrayed the Queen in The
Crown, told in January how

CANNED LAUGHS INSULT TO BRUCIE
THE Generation Game is
famous for its conveyer belt
of prizes crossing the screen
? but on MEL GIEDROYC
and SUE PERKINS? remake
it sounds like it will be
tumbleweed flying by.
The BBC has used canned
laughter on the troubled reboot
after the new hosts struggled to
recapture
BRUCE
FORSYTH?s
beloved banter, the trademark
of the show in its heyday.
The fake guffaws have now
been inserted to help boost the
show?s appeal ahead of its
return on Sunday.
A source said: ?It was always
going to be a big challenge for
Mel and Sue to have people
chuckling the way Bruce did.
?The BBC has used canned
laughter after listening back to
the live audience and agreeing
it needed a bit of extra buzz.?
A BBC spokeswoman last
night confirmed: ?The show was
filmed in front of a live studio
audience and the overwhelming
majority of the laughter was
from the recording.? A month
ago The Sun told how the
show?s revival has been cut
from four episodes to two, over
concerns it is not good enough.
The cost of axing the episodes
is around �0,000 and there
are fears it will be another
post-Bake Off failure for Mel,
above left, and Sue, above right.
JIM
DAVIDSON,
who
also
fronted the show in the Nineties
had questioned the decision to
put the pair at the helm,
arguing they could never fill
Brucie?s shoes.
I doubt even canned laughter
will be enough to save it.

The man I love
keeps on lying
Dear Deidre
I FELL in love with a
wonderful man I met on a
dating site but he has
ruined everything by lying
to me.
I am a divorced 43-year-old
woman and have a daughter of
ten. This man is 51, also divorced
and has a 12-year-old child.
We have both worked with
disadvantaged
children,
have
similar interests and share the
same sense of humour.
We fell for one another almost
right away. My daughter got on
well with him and his son was
fine with me.
We made plans for a great
holiday together. His son had
always wanted to see the pyramids
because he has done ancient Egypt
at school, so we arranged to go to
Cairo. We were all very excited.
But then he said he had a
burglary and lots of valuables
were stolen. He said he would not
be able to come on the holiday
because he had no money saved ?
just these valuables and some cash
in the house that was stolen.
I had thought that he was

I had a lot of difficulty getting
the truth about his real financial
situation from him. In the end it
turned out there had been no

and
there
were
no
valuables. He was just broke.
I am worried that his tendency
to lie is going to spoil everything.

that he exaggerates everything and

him so much. We had a great
connection but his lies wrecked
everything.
He knows he has this problem
but that does not in itself put
things right.
My family are not happy with
my relationship with him either. I
don?t know what to do.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Coping with someone who constantly lies or makes
things up can make life a real
rollercoaster.
You say he knows he has this
problem. It is likely that low selfesteem is the underlying cause and
that this goes back a long way,
probably into his childhood when
he never felt good enough to be
loved for himself. He may even have
suffered abuse.
Talking to a counsellor can free him
up for a happier, more honest future.
This will take time and can be
expensive but his doctor may be able
to refer him for counselling on the
NHS.
If he makes a real effort and is
prepared to talk about his problems
and accept he has to change, you may
be able to get your relationship back
on track.
Beware changing yourself just to fit
in with his fantasy world, though.
Dear Deidre
I AM falling in love with my
best friend. I had feelings for
her years ago but nothing
came of it. Now it is happening all over again.
I am a man of 30 and my
best friend is a girl of 29. Years
ago we were close, shared a
few kisses and very nearly
slept together. But we were
both in relationships so
stayed just good friends.
I am now free of my relationship. I met my friend for a few
drinks, as we often do. We

female and desperate to start
a family. I am 32, she is 34.
A fertility clinic told me it
would cost lots to go private,
which we can?t afford.
We have been told that we
cannot have help on the NHS
because we have chosen not
to have a male partner.
But you can?t help who you
fall in love with and I thought
the NHS did help gay couples.
All we want is to give a child
a happy, healthy, loving home.

shared a kiss but no more,
though she is single too.
I want us to get together but
don?t know how to approach
her. I am scared she doesn?t
feel the same.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: Don?t wait
for her to find someone else.
The only way you will discover how she feels is by
asking her how she sees her
relationship with you.
If she says that you are her
best friend, tell her you have
fallen for her big time and
ask her if she thinks it could
ever be more.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: The law is
clear that NHS trusts can?t
discriminate against samesex couples wanting fertility
treatment.
However, all couples must
attempt to conceive at least
six times using self-funded

Dear Deidre
WHEN I fell apart after my
mum?s death last year, never
once did my partner ask me
how I was.
I am a man of 38 and have
been with my partner for nine
years. She is 38 too and we
have two boys together.
I work unsocial hours so
she goes out evenings with
friends. We both do our own
thing. Even so, we used to be
close and talk a lot but I have
lost my zest for life since
losing my mum.
After a recent row over
nothing, my partner said how
much I had changed. She
said I was a different person.
I?m at a crossroads. Should
I stay for the sake of the kids
or should I leave because I
am making my partner
miserable too?

children deserve you to

FEELING
SO ALONE
WITH ILL
HUSBAND
Dear Deidre
MY three-year-old daughter
is starting to see hospitals as
normality because we spend
so much time there.
My husband was
diagnosed with cancer years
ago but has recently been
told he has advanced
secondary cancer. I am so
stressed that I can?t work.
There is hope for him with
treatment but the thought of
what lies ahead is truly
overwhelming. My mum ?
who helped me cope the first
time ? is ill herself and not the
person she used to be.
I love my husband more
than anything. We?re both 34
and have struggled to get
back to what we had ? he
sleeps in another room. He
says he needs to rest, which I
understand, but it leaves me
feeling single and alone.
0 DEIDRE SAYS: It is
understandable you feel
your life has been turned
upside down ? it has been.
Make sure you organise
something fun to do every
day with your little girl, even
if it just playing a game. She
is suffering too but won?t
understand why.

The One? If so, you
could be getting it all
wrong when thinking
about love.
Those who believe fate will
lead them to their perfect partner are less likely to be in a
relationship than those who are
less romantic, a study has
found.
One in seven of us passively
waits for the perfect match to crop
up. This is dubbed ?romantic fatalism? by researchers at London?s
Queen Mary University.
Psychologist Dr Magda Osman
says: ?Those who believe they can
make love happen by proactively
taking action, accepting there will
be a few mistakes along the way,
are more likely to be in a relationship.?
Here, relationship expert Kate
Taylor tells LYNSEY CLARKE how to
find ?one of The Ones? and be
happy with ?good-enough love?.
make them about character qualities like kindness, sense of humour
and willingness to commit. Anything else is a bonus.?
DITCH YOUR SCRIPT
Kate says: ?Life doesn?t follow a
script, so setting goals for when
you marry, buy a house and have
children is almost certain to make
you miserable. Many of the happiest
couples I know didn?t meet until
they were well into their forties.
?Your fertility obviously has a
shelf-life so there is one time limit
I would set ? don?t allow relationships to last longer than a year if
you?re not both on the same page.?
SEEK ADVICE
Kate says: ?Ask your happily coupled-up friends about creating a
long-term relationship. They can
spot red flags and bad treatment ?
unlike your battle-scarred, longterm-single friends who might have
limiting beliefs about perfection.
?Mums sometimes see our boyfriends through rose-tinted specs so
if you want an honest opinion on a
date?s behaviour, ask your dad.?
DON?T RATE ON FIRST DATE
Kate says: ?You wouldn?t expect
calm, confident motoring during a
driving test. Don?t expect heartstopping romantic perfection on a
first date.
?Guys who really like you will get
nervous and mess up.
?Be forgiving of well-meant mistakes, like a man wanting to
impress you so much that he talks
about himself all night. Panic is a
sign of interest and it?s often worth
giving him a second chance to
make the perfect first impression.?
WORK FOR IT

Kate says: ?You don?t leave other
important things to chance, so why
leave your love life up to fate?
?Take clear action to find love.
Sign up for a dating website, join
singles groups, invest in some killer
dating outfits, read dating books
and brush up on your flirting skills
if you?re shy.

a great job. Do them to find a
great partner.?

Kate
says:
?Lowering
your
expectations is not the same as
lowering your standards. It
means ditching your list of
unrealistic ?must-haves?.
?Let?s be honest ? that
list will screen almost
everybody out. Height,
hobbies and hairlines
have very little bearing on how happy
someone can make
you day to day.
?If you must
set
some
entrance
requirements,
NO FRILLS, NOT THRILLS
Kate says: ?Real, lasting, happy
relationships don?t usually ride a
rollercoaster of emotions. They?re
steady, stable and safe.
?If the thought of that makes you
yawn, you might be confusing
drama with passion. It?s easy to get
hooked on uncertainty.
?Not knowing where you stand
can be exciting and waiting for
messages or dates can give you a
buzz.
?But it?s not love. You?ll know
when you meet someone you can
enjoy a happy future with because
there?ll be no drama to discuss with
your friends.?
LOOK OUT FOR LOVE
Kate says: ?Sometimes it?s good to
take the pressure off your love life
so you?re not entering every date
like a slavering lion.
?But deliberately ?not looking? for
love can make your life shrink to
an uneventful cycle of work, friends
and more work. Take a more proactive approach. Do everything you
can to bring new people into your
life.
?Don?t force anything to happen
but keep the door open to new
opportunities. Make it easy for
Cupid to strike you with his arrow.?

LANGUAGE BEHIND CELEBS? SNAPS
THE selfie is the modern way to share
our lives and express ourselves.
But while most of us like to mix
our poses, many of our favourite
celebrities cannot break free from
their signature looks.
From serial huggers to hair-flick
obsessives, these stars seem to be
stuck in a selfie rut. So what do
these predictable poses say about
these famous Instagram users?
Body language analyst JUDI
JAMES explains what every leg
cross and hand gesture tells us.
Looking down: Georgia Toffolo
Judi says: ?This cut-off pose,
where Toff lowers her eyes to
hide them from the camera,
suggests a desire to keep her
true feelings and personality
hidden from view. But it could
also be a sign that while she
shares a lot of her life, there
are some aspects she keeps
a secret.?
What it means: Shy and afraid
to show true feelings.
Hair flick: Beyonce
Judi says: ?This dramatic
Queen Bee trait signals
strength of character by
drawing attention to the
head area.
?Using her hair to mimic a
weapon such as a whip,
Beyonce is showing she is
not to be messed with.
?It?s a very clear gesture
of confidence, power and
control and when she raises
one hand to run through her
hair, those power signals are
magnified by the splaying and
baring of one armpit ? a partial
gesture of superiority.?
What it means: Sexy and
active ? a warrior-woman in
full flight.
THE mum-of-three talks family life in
her weekly column.
Today Peta, who is married to
Olympic cyclist Mark Cavendish,
discusses superheroes and ponders
over her children?s choice of role
models.
MY daughter Delilah turned six
recently and she had to choose a
theme for her ?film-making party?.
I know, I know, parties have come a
long way since the Ronald McDonald
soirees of yesteryear.
I was surprised when Delilah chose a
superhero theme and told me she
wanted to be Wonder Woman ? given
that she?s never seen the film or
read a comic book featuring the
action heroine.
She dashed around singing an
improvised tune, introducing herself
as Wonder Woman, and then
attempted to save her baby brother
from perilous situations. Which, of
course, she created herself.
When I asked her why she wanted to
be Wonder Woman, she said:
?Because she is strong and brave
and a girl.?
I was expecting her to say she liked
the outfit or that one of her mates from
school liked Wonder Woman.
But to hear that Delilah wanted to be
this fierce female because she was
brave and strong really made me feel
proud.
And it got me thinking about the
subject role models. Who should we
be encouraging our children to look
up to?
Are cartoons or television
characters any less valid than real
human beings? If that person makes
our children feel empowered, brave or
confident surely the positives are
the same.
Sometimes my cape is
in the washing machine
Hand to face: Kelly Brook
Judi says: ?Brow-pointing and
mouth-touching rituals are all
about intellect and deep
thinking, suggesting Kelly
might wish to be seen as more
than just a model. For a
woman who has gone through
some relationship disasters,
she is also showing she is
much wiser now.?
What it means: Wants to be
seen as more intelligent.
Open mouth: Davina McCall
Judi says: ?This over-the-top
expression of fun puts her in
the ladette category ? someone
who is game for a laugh and
who will try most things and
take risks. But her eyes are
often closed, keeping her
feelings hidden and
suggesting a deeper,
emotional side too.?
What it means: Fun-lover who
wants you to join her party.
Our children are fortunate enough to
be surrounded by men and women
pushing themselves to achieve
amazing things.
As the daughter of an Olympic
cyclist, Delilah has the privilege of
watching female cycling stars such as
Laura Kenny and Becky James training.
She sees what it takes to achieve
their goals. Not just the smiles when
things are going well but the sweat and
sacrifice of the journey.
As a family we work closely with Help
for Heroes, a charity for injured British
servicemen and women.
And we are in awe of the men,
women and families who exceed
expectations, demonstrating
teamwork and determination to
achieve great things.
Then in our everyday lives, I try to
encourage the kids to find examples of
real-life miniature heroes.
For example, the boy who sings in
assembly but is usually painfully shy,
the girl who finishes the race last but
has given 110 per cent, or the sibling
who owns up to doing something
wrong even though he knows he will
get in trouble.
All of these actions take a pinch of
being brave and strong, whether you
are wearing your pants over your Lycra
leggings or not.
So if Wonder Woman makes Delilah
feel strong then I am happy for her to
be my daughter?s role model.
If a skateboarder my son Finnbar
watches on YouTube blows his mind
with his story of using sport to get him
out of trouble at school, that works for
me too.
It sounds like a clich� but not all
superheroes wear capes.
Sometimes mine is in the washing
machine on a cool wash and my
tracksuit bottoms have to make do.

Premier League wedge to afford it.
This, my friends, is the �,000 Jaguar

packing a 550hp supercharged 5-litre V8.
Faster, cheaper and different to your

TWENTY years ago,
Ray Parlour won the
Double with Arsenal,
Vauxhall had the GSi,
and I had the same
curtain haircut as I
do now.
It seems all three are back
in fashion.
Ray is now a TalkSport legend,
the GSi is back, and so are
Take That/Backstreet Boys floppy
man-locks. Honestly, they are.
Mix all three together and
what do you have?
A 360-mile road trip from
Wembley
to
Amsterdam
for
England?s friendly with Holland.
The 90s star in the 90s car,
Key facts:
VAUXHALL VECTRA GSi
Price new in 1998: �,700
Engine: 2.5-litre V6 petrol
Power: 195hp, 262Nm
0-62mph: 7.6 secs
Top speed: 148mph
Economy: 28mpg
that?s the silver Vectra GSi, and
a
90s-throwback
motoring
journalist in the red Insignia
GSi. I definitely had the better
deal. Ray had a radio cassette
player in his motor, dodgy brakes
and a vibrating steering wheel ?
but a lovely-sounding 2.5-litre V6.
I had Apple CarPlay, head-up
display, racy Sport mode, 4WD
and massaging seats.
Swap cars and you?d have a
massage Parlour (cue reader
groans) in Amsterdam. Now that
might catch on.
So, Ray, Mr Romford Pele,
please share some car stories.
?I?ve had all sorts of cars. Ford
Sierra, Ford Orion, Golf GTI. My
cousin was a second-hand car
dealer and he?d sort me a little
motor out.
?My mate gave me a Mini
Metro for a while. Can you
imagine giving Tony Adams a
lift in that, 6ft 4, and trying to
get in a Mini Metro?
?It broke down on me on the
M25 and I made him push me
on the hard shoulder.
?Tony had a Ford Scorpio once
and it was an absolute tip. Sweet
wrappers everywhere. I tried to
pull this lollipop off a seat but
it had been there that long it
ripped the leather off with it.?
?It?s a blinder?
Then there was the time Ray?s
Ford
Orion
was
abandoned
outside a London boozer for
three days. Ray said: ?We went
to a bar in Moorgate after training
and I ended up having too many
beers, so we got a cab home.
?Tony had a driver round our
way and the next morning the
guy took us to training, waited
for us, took us down to get our
car, left us, and the next minute
we?re in the pub again ? and
getting another cab home.
?We did it three times. My car
was in the car park for three
days. It didn?t move. We just
kept going in the pub. I?d have
four pints, five pints, and he?d
go, ?Ah, you better leave it again,
we?ll get it tomorrow?.
?My first proper car, I?m not
knocking them other cars, but
my first prestigious car was the
Mercedes CLK. Beautiful motor.
?I?d got a new contract, a bit
more dough, we were doing
really well, so I thought I?d treat
myself. My mate said I could
save ten grand by collecting it
from Stuttgart.
?So I said we?ll go on a road
trip and have a laugh. Bang. Off
we went. They said to me, ?Now

?Tony Adams had to push my
Mini Metro on the M25?
you?ve got to go slow and run the
engine in?, but we?re going through
France and there?s not a car in
sight, and I thought, f*** this,
100mph all the way.
?The best car I ever had was
the
CL
55
AMG.
Beautiful.
52-plate, 2002. It was a great year
for me, Double year, and I scored
in the FA Cup Final.
?I was watching the Grand Prix
one day and I thought, ?F***, look
at that car in front, the safety car,
it?s a blinder, the new CL, I?ll
have to get one of them.?
?I had it for five or six years,
fantastic, what a motor car,
unbelievable,
you
could
go
90-100mph and you think you
were going 25-30mph. That?s how
smooth it was. I paid �k for it
and sold it down the pub for �k.
It was such a nice motor. You
know when you get in cars and
you think, ?I?ve got a three-hour
drive now? but it was a privilege
to get in that car and drive it up
and down the A1. Lovely motor,
lovely, lovely motor. But you
expect that for �k.
?I?m in a Mercedes CLS now.
Again, lovely motor, brilliant for
going up and down the country to
watch football matches.
?I had a BMW 520 diesel for a
year, that was as good as gold,
but then I went back to a Merc
after that. I just like driving them.
?I was never one who was going
to get a Ferrari.
?Dennis Bergkamp liked his
motors, he had a Ferrari and a
nice big Merc. And a good mate
of mine, Ian Poulter, who I had
horses
with,
he?s
got
ten
Ferraris. The cars at the training
ground nowadays are unbelievable.
Proper. Some of the motors in
there, matt black paint and
all that. But I was never
going to be like that, even if
I played now. I might have a
Range Rover, but I?d have a
normal one.?
And his dream car?
?For me now, I?d say the
GT, I love the Merc AMG
GT. Fantastic. You see
them on the F1 tracks
going round, oh, what a
motor that is.?
Not a Vauxhall then?
?That red car looks
nice. I couldn?t believe
it?s got 20in wheels. My
Merc?s got 19in wheels.
It
looks
a
lovely,
lovely car.
?But that Vectra,
f***ing hell, it was an
experience
driving
that one.?
Key facts:
VAUXHALL INSIGNIA GSi
Price: �,975
Engine: 2-litre BiTurbo diesel
Power: 210hp, 480Nm
0-62mph: 7.3 secs
Top speed: 145mph
Economy: 40mpg
CO2: 186g/km
OH? You thought you?d
read Ray?s interview,
look at the big pictures then
turn the page? No, mate.
That?s not how it works.
Now I?m going to tell you
all about the Insignia GSi
? the first Vauxhall GSi for
12 years.
But I promise I?ll be quick.
Smooth ride, plenty of kit,
almost German ? without
the German price tag.
Er, it is actually built in
Germany, but you know
what I mean.
I?ll let you decide on its
looks.
You like? YES/NO? It?s an
Insignia in a PE kit, lots of
chrome, twin exhausts and
fat 20in alloys.
But the cabin is so good it
deserves a paragraph of its
own. Head-up display.
Lovely. 3D satnav. Sweet.
Heated and cooled
massaging seats. Bliss.
Apple CarPlay and so on.
Proper motorway
prowlers will want the
210hp 2-litre diesel over the
260hp petrol but both are
4WD, with slick eight-speed
paddle-shift auto and Sport
mode, which sounds great
and tightens everything up.
Nice motor. Good value.
Well played, Vauxhall.
THEY THINK IT?S ?HALL OVER
VAUXHALL will bow out as an England
sponsor after the World Cup.
The eight-year deal has seen the
Three Lions wear Vauxhall-branded
training gear, Fabio Capello and
Roy Hodgson drive Insignias
and more than 360 youth
teams handed free kit.
Parlour said: ?They?ve done
a wonderful job. People don?t
realise all the work that goes
on behind the scenes with
grassroots football. They put
a lot of money in to the FA
and the Home Nations.
Everyone will look back and
thank them.?
And here?s Parlour?s England
team for Russia: ?I?d play three
at the back. Maguire, Stones
and Dier, then Walker and Rose. Butland
in goal. Wilshere if he?s fit, Dele Alli,
Sterling on the right, Harry Kane, and I?d
go Rashford on the left.
?We should get through the group. It?s
a travesty if we don?t. Belgium and
England should get through and in the
last 16, you?ll probably have either
Colombia or Poland, I?m guessing.
?Then it gets tougher. It could be Brazil
or Germany. But surely we have to get to
the quarter-finals and that?s when you
need to be positive. Playing a Germany
side, who?d be favourites. Playing a Brazil
side, who?d be favourites. So let?s have a
go, lads. Be positive. If we lose 3-2 and
everyone?s had a right go, I don?t think
any England supporter would complain if
we lose to a better side. Be fearless. No
regrets. Go and unleash them.?

WITH wounded exservice personnel

is an outrage that a
council gave two flats to
terrorist Muhammad Abid.
�
LETTER
When he demanded an extra
flat for his wife, on the basis that
?we are not legally obliged to live
together?, Newham Council in
East London should have replied:
?We are not legally obliged to
give your wife a separate flat.?
He is now in prison but when
he is freed, no doubt Newham
council will be legally obliged to
give him a home.
SEAN SPILLANE

I AM incredulous that a jihadi,
whose gang intended to use an
army of children for multiple terror attacks, was allowed two
council flats ? one for him and
one for his wife.
Why do other countries treat
terrorists as terrorists and take
the hard line but the UK handles
them with kid gloves?
ALAN JACOBS

ONCE again, some council feels
the need to bend its knee to
another Britain-hating jihadist.

second flat for his estranged wife,

THE frenzied murder of Lucy
Braham was shocking and her
killer William Jaggs should never
be released.
But it is a sad fact that society
is too slow to treat people with
mental health issues.
People going without a correct
diagnosis can become addicts
because they self-medicate to try
to alleviate symptoms.
And because of stigma, people
with mental health issues are
reluctant to come forward, putting themselves and potentially
others at risk.
He is called a ?junkie killer?.
But if he was correctly diagnosed,
beds were available and drug
clinics weren?t being closed down,
we might be able to prevent incidents such as these.

You will be at your most independent, full of innovative plans
and able to find faster ways of dealing with challenges at work.
Later, it can be a love-at-first-sight night. Already involved? You
sense a relationship has more to give. Plans for a family
reunion take shape and go international.
This could be a pivotal day for rebuilding friendships. Clever
changes will make a house feel bigger and free up space to call
your own. Later, Mars fuels passion and Venus gives you the
confidence to introduce yourself to someone you have been
interested in for a while. Luck visits door 44.
Your gift for recognising opportunities should bring in some
extra income, while your creative flair ensures you stand out.
The moon makes it easier to talk about love and simple heartfelt words get the deepest reaction. In cash talks at work, do
see the difference between being strong and being obstinate.
You can breeze through a tough to-do list with the extra energy
flowing through your chart, freeing up time for a personal
project. When a free spirit who seems unlikely to settle down
talks about love, your reaction could surprise everyone. Luck is
connected to a relative who knows a lot about football.
Saturn switches good intentions into positive actions. Projects
you start working on, in however small a way, should have a
successful lift-off. In love, Venus is focusing on finding you
someone protective and serious but Mars is setting up a
passionate alternative. Think about which one is right for you.
Mars and the moon give you a clever blend of tough and tender
tactics. This lets you get the family and other key characters to
make positive plans in place of excuses. It could dramatically
improve your finances. A question you are asked reveals how
deep love goes. Single? Love smiles in a financial location.
The unusually long stay of mind-sharpening Mercury in your
job chart sets up an amazing opportunity. There will be more to
do, more responsibility, but also more to gain. Partners show
their love in different ways yet the depth of feelings is the same.
Single? Love starts with advice in a health food store.
Meeting someone who brings out your creative side marks the
start of exciting times. Imaginative ideas keep your love life
moving and growing stronger. The wise way you handle bosses
and officials spells success at work and with more personal
projects. Luck is hot when you spot an old friend in a gift store.
Your guide planet Saturn is at the top of your chart, giving you
the determination and ideas that help you earn more ? in a way
that makes you proud. Venus wants a love for you that starts in
a low-key way and gets stronger with time, rather than fizzling
out. Luck sees a group of neighbours winning together.

luck partners can share is linked to a list of song titles.
Venus, planet of luxury as well as love, is full-on in your chart. If
you are single, you meet someone who can turn a routine takeaway into a glamorous meal. Settled? A partner may be richer
than either of you know. Resist jumping to conclusions at work

FUND AIM
NATIONWIDE Building
Society plans a business
banking launch using funds
set aside by the Royal
Bank of Scotland.
RBS was forced by the
European Commission to
set up an �0million pot
to spur competition as
part of remedies relating
to its bailout.
It has yet to be launched
and Britain?s biggest building society would have to
apply. TSB will also be
applying.
Nationwide chief executive
Joe Garner explained it
?gives us a way to enter
the market?. He said: ?We
know there is demand for a
Nationwide business current
account, because at least
50,000 members ask us
each year if we can help.?

COMMENT
By PAUL PESTER
TSB Chief Exec
SMALL businesses are the
lifeblood of the UK economy. There are 5.7 million
hard-working small firms
across the land ? from
builders and bakers to
website creators.
They pump more than
�0billion a year into the
economy and many of the
people running these enterprises or working for them
will be Sun readers.
I have always admired
the get-up-and-go of those
running their own businesses. It?s not easy to
start something new, as I
found out when I
relaunched TSB.
Entrepreneurs have
been
underserved,
under-valued and
overcharged by
the big
banks for decades.
That is why TSB will be
applying to the RBS remedies fund for �0million
with which help turbocharge our planned new
services for businesses.
This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to break
the shackles that the big
five banks have had on
small businesses.
TSB sees a new type of
business banking where it
takes minutes, not days, to
open an account.
We need a straightforward lending process that
gives decisions quickly.
Technology should enable
companies to manage their
money on the move.
Crucially, charges should
be simple and transparent.
THE NEX
BIG THING
SHARES in electronic
trading firm NEX GROUP
rose more than nine per
cent to 971.9p yesterday
following a takeover offer
worth more than �7billion from US giant CME.
The FTSE 250 firm,
headed by ex-Tory party
treasurer Michael Spencer,
specialises in wholesale
trading. He holds around
17 per cent of the group
so any deal would see him
net a bumper payout.

targets despite challenging market conditions.
Pre-tax profits tumbled
58 per cent to �illion,
down from �.7million a
year earlier.
This was due to acquisitions such as its �million deal for SOFOLOGY.
DFS shares rose more
than eight per cent to
close at 184.2p.
Takeda said any move was at a ?preliminary
and exploratory stage? and that no approach
had yet been made to Shire?s board.
But Shire shares rocketed on yesterday?s news,
rising more than 14 per cent to close at 3,500p.
Takeda said a potential deal with Irish-based
Shire presented an opportunity to create a
?truly global, valuebased biopharmaceutical leader?.
A
tie-up
would
strengthen Takeda?s
core oncology, gastrointestinal
and
neuroscience
drugs,
as well as exploit
US opportunities.
One of Shire?s best
known
drugs
is
Adderall, for ADHD.
According to UK takeover rules, Takeda must
make an offer by April 25 or walk away.
It comes days after US-based INTERNATIONAL
PAPER made a second offer for FTSE 100 packaging company SMURFIT KAPPA.
And the battle for GKN, the third largest
engineering company in the top flight stock
market index after BAE SYSTEMS and ROLLSROYCE, comes to a head this week.
Shareholders are set to decide by today on
whether to accept an �illion hostile bid from
UK restructuring firm MELROSE.
HARGREAVES LANSDOWN analyst Nicholas
Hyett said of a Shire takeover: ?The group has
strong positions in several attractive markets.
?Sales of recently-developed drugs are rising
rapidly and major patent expiries aren?t scheduled until the 2020s. Meanwhile labs are productive, which should secure revenue streams.
?However, the group?s valuation doesn?t reflect
those strengths. We?ll just have to wait and see
if [Takeda] can make the numbers stack up.?

SEVENTH
FALL FOR
UK CARS
THE number of cars built
in Britain fell again last
month as the domestic
market skidded for the
seventh month in a row.
In total 145,500 rolled
off production lines, 4.4
per cent fewer than last
February, said the Society
of Motor Manufacturers
and Traders.
UK production fell 17
per cent following doubledigit falls in the previous
two months.
Those made for export
dipped 0.8 per cent. Some
117,139 vehicles ? 80
per cent of total output
? were shipped overseas.
SMMT boss Mike Hawes
said the UK fall was a
?concern?. But he added:
?We hope that the degree
of certainty provided by
last week?s Brexit transition agreement will help
stimulate business and
consumer confidence over
the coming months.?
BOOST TO
SHOPPERS

Brexit deal progress.
GFK?s index rose by

?

?definitely a movement in
the right direction?.
?PROBE? ON AVIVA
INSURANCE giant AVIVA
faces a potential probe by
the City watchdog over
its abandoned proposal to
cancel �0million worth
of preference shares.
The FINANCIAL CONDUCT AUTHORITY said it
is considering a formal
investigation after Aviva?s
original
announcement
this month ?raised serious
issues?.
Criticism
from
investors forced Aviva to
backtrack on scrapping
the shares, which pay
high fixed dividends.
FCA boss Andrew Bailey said yesterday it was
reviewing Aviva?s compliance with market abuse
rules and whether preference
shareholders
had
lost out financially.

BHA SNAP DECISION
THE BHA has been forced
to amend a result from
Kempton on Friday night
after bungling officials
declared the wrong winner
in a photo finish.
Bird For Life was called
the winner by a nose from
heavily-backed
10-11
favourite Oregon Gift.
However, after studying
the photo, the result has
been reversed. The move
will infuriate favouritebackers and the BHA stated: ?The result that was
called on the day stands
for betting purposes.?
A spokesperson added:
?The team is disappointed
to have to correct any
result after the day, but it
is important these results
are called accurately.?

Pat Smullen
Irishman Smullen, 40, who enjoyed
Epsom glory aboard Harzand two years
ago, said: ?I have been in hospital in
recent days undergoing tests as I was
showing symptoms associated with a
gallstone problem.
?However, it was discovered the
problem was more serious.
?A tumour was discovered and
consequently I won?t be riding for
the foreseeable future.
?It?s a new challenge for me and one I am
fully focused on overcoming. I?ve got tremendous support from family and friends, both within racing and outside of racing, and I?m very positive about making a full
recovery.?
Smullen, stable jockey to Dermot Weld, has been Irish
champion nine times. His Classic wins also include the
2,000 Guineas on Refuse To Bend as well as two successes
in the Irish Derby on Grey Swallow and Harzand.

run at Market Rasen. This track should suit and this lightly-raced mare can come on a ton for that return.
I?VE found us a Gift horse at Chelmsford. NOBLE GIFT
(3.30, nb) is another to make an eyecatching reappearance. He was beaten just a neck by the smart Fire

GLANCE BACK (3.05 Wetherby, treble) is thriving

EDDIE HEARN is plotting a

heavyweight
fight with Anthony Joshua.
WBC champion Wilder
was due to fly into Cardiff
to work for Sky at
Joshua?s unification showdown
against
Joseph
Parker at the Principality
Stadium on Saturday.
But despite wanting to
fight the winner, Wilder
has snubbed the trip, and
will watch the undefeated
world champions at home.
Hearn says Wilder has
been badly advised.
But that will not stop
the Matchroom Sport boss
from trying to snap him up
to a promotional deal.
Hearn, 38, said: ?Imagine how big Deontay Wilder
would be if he signed for
us, in the heavyweight mix
that we?ve got.
?Tony Bellew against
David Haye, Joshua, Dillian
Whyte. How could he not

?And contractually he
can do it because he
doesn?t have a promotional
agreement with anyone.?
WBA and IBF champion
Joshua will add the WBO
belt to his collection if he
beats Parker in Cardiff.
That means a clash with
Wilder would create the
first heavyweight to hold
all four major titles.
Hearn believes he could
stage the richest heavyweight fight in history,
beating the �m from

Hearn said: ?I would

MIND THE TRAP
ANTHONY JOSHUA has warned Joseph
Parker to watch out for booby traps.
The two undefeated heavyweight
world champions collide in Cardiff on
Saturday night.
And speaking at last night?s open
training session, AJ said: ?It?s good
news that Parker wants a war.
?I?m hearing all you need in boxing
is a good chin and a right hand.

SANDPAPERGATE AUSSIE
OUT
From Back Page
Smith and his sidekick
Warner were suspended
by Cricket Australia for
a YEAR. Bancroft got a
nine-month ban.
The IPL also banned
them from next month?s
event, despite Smith
having a �3million
deal
with
Rajasthan
Royals and Warner a
similar contract with
Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Warner lost a lucrative sponsorship deal
with South Korean electronics giant LG.
The ECB are expected
to reciprocate CA?s suspensions in this country.
That means Bancroft?s
Somerset deal this summer will be scrapped
and Smith, 28, and
Warner, 31, would not
be able to play county
cricket if they wanted.
CA boss James Sutherland said claims of
ball-tampering in this
winter?s Ashes might be
investigated, despite the
ICC?s refusal to do so.
He
confirmed:
?If
there are credible allegations we have the
responsibility to address
them, though the investigation thus far is that
it does appear to be an
isolated incident.?
Warner devised the
plan to sandpaper the
ball during lunch on
the third day of the
Third Test against South
Africa in Cape Town.
Smith did nothing to
stop it and they coerced
Bancroft, 25, playing
just his eighth Test, into
carrying out the plan.
Warner
actually
showed him how to
tamper with the ball,
which suggests he has
done it before.
All three of them lied
to
umpires
Richard
Illingworth and Nigel
Llong, while Smith and
Bancroft also lied during their confessions.
Sutherland confirmed:
?We had concerns as to
some of the comments
that were made, and not
being totally transparent.
?There
was
an
element of courage in
owning up but also an
element of mistruth.?
Sutherland also confirmed that ?cheating?
was
an
appropriate
term to describe the
trio?s actions.
He added: ?This has
caused a huge amount
of damage for cricket.
?These are significant
sanctions for the individuals involved.?
Head coach Darren
Lehmann, who kept his
job after convincing CA
he knew nothing of the
plot, fears for the mental wellbeing of the trio.
He said: ?They have
made a mistake as
everyone,
including
myself, has made mistakes in the past.
?I worry about the
three guys immensely.
Their health and wellbeing is important to us.
?I hope people give
them a second chance.?
As Smith flew out of
Johannesburg yesterday,
he was taunted with
cries of ?cheat, cheat?.

has
been
exposed as the ringleader of the
tampering scandal who showed
Cameron
Bancroft
how
to
sandpaper the ball.
The opening batsman, 31, has
become the pariah of world cricket
and looks unlikely ever to play for
Australia again.
An explosive statement by Cricket
Australia left their former vice-captain a
man alone, condemned by administrators,
shunned by team-mates and vilified by
former players.
Now Warner could try to exact revenge
by telling his version of events and drag
more players into the row.
Warner and captain Steve Smith have
been banned from all international and
Australian domestic cricket for a year,
while Bancroft got nine months.
Former
England
batsman
Jonathan
Trott, who was mocked by Warner for
having ?scary eyes? days before he flew
home from the 2013-14 Ashes with a
stress-related illness, tweeted ?Goodbye
David? with a waving hand emoji.
And ex-skipper Michael Vaughan wrote:
?Steve Smith I think is a good guy who
made
a
huge
mistake . . . he
needed
punishing but I think this is too harsh.
?Bancroft, who I don?t know, was led
astray but deserved punishing but again
too harshly IMO . . . the other guy I really
don?t care about.?
That sums up the views of the cricket
world. While there is some sympathy for
sacked captain Smith and Bancroft, the
reaction towards Warner is nothing other
than goodbye and good riddance.
Warner was revealed to have devised
the plan during the lunch interval on
day three of the Third Test against
South Africa.
The astonishing disclosures begged the
question ? if Warner had never balltampered before, how did he know how
to teach Bancroft?
The trio were also accused by Cricket
Australia of lying to umpires as the scandal unfolded in Cape Town last Saturday.
Smith and Bancroft also misled their
evening press conference when they
claimed they had used sticky tape

That is what he demanded to know

Lehmann was shown on TV on his

man Peter Handscomb dashed on to
the field to talk to Bancroft, who
shoved the sandpaper inside his pants.
Lehmann, known as ?Boof? and the

Warner and Smith have also been told
they will not be welcome at the Indian
Premier League next month, each losing

Smith and Bancroft will not be
considered for team leadership positions
for a year after their bans, while Warner
will never again be captain, vice-captain
or in any leadership role.
All three will also undertake 100 hours
of community service.
Smith is expected to express remorse,
try to rehabilitate his reputation and
return from his suspension in time to
play in the World Cup and Ashes in
England in 2019.
Television cameras captured Bancroft

12th man Peter Hanscomb ran on to the

Now Lehmann is vowing to change

He said: ?The thing for me would

After
Cricket
Australia?s
head
of
integrity Iain Roy and high-performance
chief Pat Howard interviewed players and
management, Warner was found guilty of
seven separate findings.
The most damning charges read: ?(a)
Development of a plan to attempt to
artificially alter the condition of the ball.
(b)
Instruction
to
a
junior
player
(Bancroft) to carry out a plan to take
steps to attempt to artificially alter the
condition of the ball using sandpaper.
?(c) Provision of advice to a junior
player regarding how a ball could be
artificially altered, including demonstrating
how it could be done.?
It suggests Warner knew exactly how to
tamper with the ball and was an
experienced practitioner in the dark art.
And that makes a mockery of claims
the Australians have never previously
tampered.
Do not forget, Warner revealed to
stunned England players during their
post-Ashes drinks how he uses special
strapping on his hand against the ball.
Now a furious Warner is in the mood
to turn his back on international cricket
and become a globe-trotting Twenty20
gun for hire.
He will have to wait for the big bucks
because, as well as being blocked from
the IPL, he cannot play in next winter?s
Big Bash in Australia.
One source told SunSport Warner
believes he has been made a scapegoat
and
that
other
players
and
team
management DID know of the plot.
A dressing-room schism has developed
in recent days, with Australia?s fast
bowlers
furiously
rejecting
Warner?s
claims and insisting they knew nothing
about Bancroft?s illegal scuffing.
Warner on Tuesday removed himself
from the players? WhatsApp group and
looked an increasingly isolated figure.
Legendary leg-spinner Shane Warne,
once banned for a year for taking an
illegal substance, thinks the punishment is
too harsh.
He acknowledged their actions were
?un-Australian?
but
added:
?My
punishment would have been to miss the
Fourth Test against South Africa on
Friday, a huge fine and be sacked as
captain and vice-captain.
?But they should still be allowed to play
after that.?
MyVIEW By JOHN ETHERIDGE
A ONE-YEAR ban is the correct
decision for David Warner and
Steve Smith ? it is tough but
not excessive.
Australia?s ball-tampering last
week was not a spontaneous
decision foolishly taken in the
heat of battle. It was cynically
calculated and planned.
South Africa were in control
of the Third Test so, at lunch
on the third day, Warner and
Smith wondered how they could
alter the momentum of the
match.
Warner?s suggestion was to
use sticky sandpaper ? and
Smith went along with it even
though they knew it was illegal.
They
co-opted
Cameron
Bancroft, the least experienced
player, into their scheme.
Cheating in other sports ?
such as drug-taking in cycling
or athletics ? often brings a
two-year ban. How can you
cheat in cricket?
Drugs are less of an issue but
one unequivocal way to cheat is
to scuff up the ball to try to
help it swing more.
So, yes, a one-year ban is
fair. Shane Warne was given a
year for taking an illegal
substance and Mohammad Amir
received five years and a jail
sentence
for
deliberately
bowling no-balls.
The reaction in Australia and
across the globe shows how
seriously many cricket fans
regard cheating.
And, of course, years of
sledging and boorish on-field
behaviour
by
the
Aussies
ensured leniency would not be
shown towards Smith, Warner
and Bancroft.

Haas: We?re no

FORMULA ONE teams are demanding an

Haas use Ferrari engines and parts,

HEARTACHE
From DAVID FACEY

JUSTIN
ROSE
spent last week
banishing
his
Masters play-off
demons
while
most
of
his
rivals
were
going ?mad?.
Rose
skipped
the lottery that is
the Dell World
Match Play and
instead
headed
to Augusta to
relive last year?s
gut-wrenching
loss to Sergio
Garcia.
And
the
English player
claimed
the
timing
was
perfect as he
avoided the frustrations shared by
everyone in the WGC
event ? bar the winner
Bubba Watson.
Rose, 37, explained: ?It
was good to go up to
Augusta last week and form a
different impression to the one I
left with last year.
?It was great for two reasons.
Firstly, it?s always fun to be there.
People say to me you?ve played the
Masters 12 or 13 times, so I?m sure
you know the course. But it?s
Augusta, why wouldn?t you want to
play there?
?And, secondly, after last year, it
was important just to be on site
and to see the place before I have
to be there to compete ? just to
kind of get that first walk out of
my system.
?It gave me a chance to remember the shots that were hit, think
about what might have gone
wrong, what could have gone
better, where things could have
changed.
That
was
obviously
something I needed to go and do.
?My outlook is I would like just
to win a Masters in my career,
whether it?s next year or five years
down the road.
?I?m not putting too much
emphasis on missing out last year,
especially after that therapeutic
walk last week.
?My other thought is there?s
really not one blade of grass there
that was there last year. For me,
it?s a fresh body of work and
that?s how I?m going into it.
?The course doesn?t recognise
what happened last year. Just go
in and build a new fresh week.?

And the world No 5 soon realised
that missing the Match Play was a

as
he
watched some of the action on TV.
The 2013 US Open champion
added: ?The Match Play is a really
fun event but I don?t think you
truly get great feedback on the
state of your game.
?There were lots of guys who
didn?t play great last week and
advanced through the group stage,
whereas Branden Grace was about
14 under par and didn?t make it
out of his group.
?You don?t get a chance to prove
where your game?s at like you do
in a four-round tournament.
?We?re all so competitive that,
when you do lose, you kind of
walk away from the week mad.
?I think there were more clubs
broken on the range last week
than any other tournament because
head-to-head golf is different.
?To get a read on my game, it
was more important to do it the
way I have.?

WEST HAM EXCLUSIVE
By ANDREW DILLON
JULIAN DICKS felt deja vu
when a West Ham fan put a
corner flag on the centre
spot during trouble at the
London Stadium.
By DAN KING
The Hammers? then left-back
was confronted by a similar
scene in 1992 when a supporter
staged a one-man protest at
the club?s Bond Scheme.
Frustration at the West Ham board,
the stadium and the plight of the
team led to ugly scenes during their
3-0 defeat to Burnley on March 10.
And Irons legend Dicks said: ?I
don?t agree with the fighting, the
coin throwing and the violence ? but
fans must be heard.
?They
are
deeply
frustrated with the way
things are going and want
to get their point across.
?The
Burnley
incidents
have
been
dismissed
as
mindless hooliganism.
?Yes, some of it overstepped the mark but
some of it was more out
of
frustration
than
anything else.
?The guy who ran on
the
pitch
with
the
corner flag was no yob.
?I remember the same
thing happening when I
was playing for the club.
?We were at home to Everton and fans were up in arms
about plans to charge them just for
the right to buy a season ticket.
?A guy came on with the corner
flag and sat in the centre-circle. He
wasn?t aggressive, just determined.
?I tried to reason with him and
took the flag off him. I left
Martin Allen talking to him but he
didn?t want to budge.
?It was done out of frustration
because West Ham clearly meant
a lot to that bloke. It?s their lives.
He wasn?t a thug.
?At the moment, West Ham
fans
don?t
like
what
is
happening to their club and feel
nobody cares what they think.
They are making a point.?
Dicks, 54, was sidekick to
boss Slaven Bilic until both
were sacked in November.
He is now out of work but
looking for a fresh start, at
any level of the game.
West Ham hover two points
above
the
relegation
zone
ahead of their six-pointer at
home
to
Southampton
on
Saturday.
With eight games left, it is
set to be an anxious climax to
the season.
Dicks added: ?I take my share
of the responsibility for the situation
the team is in.
?But I didn?t want to move to the
London Stadium all along. Even two
years before the move I was having
reservations about it.
?Upton Park was a horrible place
to go as a visiting player and that
gave West Ham an edge at times.
?It wasn?t a fortress by any means
but at times it helped us with the
intimidating atmosphere.
?I used to look at Slaven when he
was manager, standing 25 yards out
from the dugout, exposed.
?At the London Stadium you?re
alone out there.
?The board has to back managers
in the transfer market. That was the
whole point of the move.
?It was said it would lead to the
signings to challenge for the top
six and European football. But talk
is cheap.?

FORMER Ipswich boss Bobby Ferguson has

Ferguson was Sir Bobby Robson?s coach

Robson became England chief a year later.
The one-time full-back also had spells

The League Two side are
one of ten to 12 clubs

historical sexual abuse.
Clive Sheldon QC, the
lawyer
leading
the
FA-commissioned review,
has told a number of
clubs
to
deliver
a
?structured report? in
the next month or so ?
or he will then conduct
his own investigation.
Chelsea and Manchester
City, who have set up
their own QC-led probes,
are not thought to be in
the firing line.
But Crewe this month
stated it was abandoning
plans
for
its
own
independent inquiry into
serial paedophile Bennell.
The ex-Crewe and Man
City coach was jailed in
February for 30 years
after being convicted of
43 offences.
The club said it saw no
need to ?duplicate the
thorough enquiries? of
Cheshire Police.
Sheldon was hoping to
deliver his review to the
FA by Easter but is now
targeting September. He
will name any institutions,
clubs or individuals who
failed to respond correctly
to abuse allegations.

LASCELLES . . . missed out
Gareth is
Jam-my
dodger
By DAVID COVERDALE
JAMAAL LASCELLES thinks
England
manager
Gareth
Southgate has his favourites
? and he is not one of them.
The Newcastle captain hoped
for a first Three Lions senior
call-up for the friendlies with
Holland and Italy following his
stand-out season.
But he was overlooked by his
former Under-21s boss Southgate,
with
Burnley?s
James
Tarkowski and Swansea?s Alfie
Mawson included instead.
Centre-half
Lascelles,
24,
admitted: ?I was waiting to see
if I got a text before the team
got announced and I spoke to
my agent, so I was disappointed
when I found out.
?But Southgate obviously likes
what he likes, he?s gone with
different centre-halves.
?I?ve played for England from
Under-18s to Under-21s and he
was the Under-21s manager at
the time.
?I know he?s been at a lot of
Newcastle games but he clearly
likes the other guys over me.
?I?ll just focus on Newcastle.
If anything, it will motivate me
more to kick on with Newcastle
and maybe prove him wrong.?
Lascelles
admits
he
has
improved massively this season
under boss Rafa Benitez.
And he has urged Toon chiefs
to do everything to keep him at
the club this summer.
Benitez has a year left on his
contract but has lost trust in
owner Mike Ashley after not
getting what he wanted in the
last three transfer windows.
Lascelles said: ?Bringing Rafa
in is the best thing this club
has done.
?Since he has been here,
things have been on the up. He
has brought the club and the
city together.
?He is an excellent manager,
he has won trophies, he has
worked
in
many
different
leagues and he knows what it
takes to be successful.
?It has only been positive
since he arrived.
?He?s been here two seasons
but you still want to impress
him, you want to do well for
him because he commands that
respect.
?With the manager we have
got, the fanbase, the stadium
and the history, everything is
there to grow.
?With this manager in charge,
if he stays, players will want to
come here.?
Newcastle
host
relegation
rivals Huddersfield on Saturday
in another battle at the bottom.
The Toon are 13th, four points
above the drop zone, and have
won their last two home games.
But Lascelles believes their
season would have been better
were it not for the takeover talk
in the winter.
The Magpies endured a ninematch winless run from October
until December and were down
in 15th when Ashley pulled the
plug
on
discussions
with
Amanda Staveley in January.
Lascelles added: ?Now that
the stuff with the owner and
the takeover has died down,
that helps.
?Whether it was going to
happen or not, it is less to
think about as a player. We
now know we are in a stable
environment at a stable club.?

Andros still has
England dream
NEVER GIVE UP . . .
Palace?s Andros Townsend
is still determined to add
to his 13 England caps
By JUSTIN ALLEN
ANDROS TOWNSEND will not
give up hope of starring for
England at a major tournament
? maybe even in Russia this
summer.
Winger Townsend, 26, was the man
of the moment four years ago after
bursting on to the scene with Tottenham and the Three Lions ahead of
the World Cup in Brazil.
Now, there is only one thing that
remains the same . . . he is still
playing for Roy Hodgson.
Instead of chasing a Champions
League spot, he is out of the
England
frame
and
battling
relegation with Crystal Palace.
He won his 13th cap as a sub in
a
friendly
against
Spain
in
November 2016, yet has not
featured
since
under
Gareth
Southgate.
And Townsend admits he would
see it as a career unfulfilled if he
never played for England again.
He said: ?I believe I can get into
the England squad one day.
?When you?re towards the bottom
of the league, you must do something
special. You need to be performing
much better than the players at the
top clubs. I benefited when I was at
Spurs and now I have to up my level
if I want to get back there.
?I haven?t scored enough goals, I
haven?t played well enough but
I don?t think that ship has sailed.
?I still like to believe, whether it be
next season or the season after that
? or even this summer . . . one day I?d
like to be in that squad.?
Townsend has scored just twice in
32 appearances for Palace in a season
which started with Frank De Boer
being sacked after five games.
Hodgson has lifted them out of the
drop zone and they have a threepoint cushion ahead of Saturday?s
Selhurst Park date with Liverpool.
And Townsend reckons playing
under the ex-England boss has been
the most enjoyable time of his career.
He said: ?Roy?s relentless. After a
good win on a Saturday, you?re in on
the training pitch Monday preparing
hard for the next game.
?He never gives us the chance to
relax on what we?ve done.
?When he arrived, we were in a
bad situation and had no confidence.
We were playing OK but weren?t
scoring goals or creating chances.
?He stripped everything back. We
were doing basic drills and running
through time and again stuff like
where he wanted us to be, and at what
stage of the game, what position.
?It was mechanical stuff to force into
our minds what we needed to do.?
More than a few eyebrows were
raised when Hodgson picked Townsend
to face Italy in 2015.
He laughed: ?The pundits were saying things like, ?If Townsend can get
into the squad then anyone can.? But

believe in myself.
?Roy?s a firm believer in players
that he knows and can trust.
?Especially for England, when I
wasn?t in the greatest club form, he
would call upon me and I?d always
produce for my country. Hopefully I
can do that for him again in the last
seven games and we?ll stay up.?
Townsend revealed Hodgson?s arrival
at Palace was the first time they had
spoken since the manager told him he
was not in the squad for Euro 2016.
He said: ?I was devastated because
I was in great form for Newcastle.
?But it?s only when stepping back
you realise that six months before I
was playing for Spurs? reserve side to
put things into perspective. There
was no awkward moment between
us. It?s part and parcel of football.?
Palace?s fate is in their own hands,
with games to come against fellow
strugglers Brighton, Watford, Stoke
and West Brom.
Their 2-0 win over Huddersfield
last time out was their first in eight
games, yet Townsend said: ?We lost
to Chelsea, Manchester United and
Tottenham but, with a bit of luck, we
could have had three or four points
from those games.
?That showed us we could mix it
with the top teams. But when you?re
facing teams around you, playing well

REFFIN? HELL . . . Deniz

to give Italy a penalty
SCREEN BURN . . . VAR in use at Wembley
By MARTIN LIPTON
ENGLAND boss Gareth Southgate
was frustrated by Italy?s lastgasp penalty leveller at Wembley.
The fresh controversy raised more
questions over whether VAR will
wreck this summer?s World Cup.
But German referee Deniz Aytekin
not only followed the protocols on
Tuesday, he also made the RIGHT call.
WHAT HAPPENED?
Three minutes from time, Federico
Chiesa drove into the England box
and went down under a challenge
from James Tarkowski.
Referee Aytekin, standing outside the
box, gave a goal-kick and told Chiesa
to get up ? then took advice from an
assistant and gave a corner instead.
Before the kick, the Video Assistant
Referee told Aytekin over his earpiece
he had missed a potential penalty and
needed to take a look for himself.
Aytekin went to the pitchside video
monitor, watched the incident back
and decided it WAS a penalty.
WAS IT A CLEAR AND OBVIOUS ERROR?
Guess what? It doesn?t have to be. In
fact, the protocol states that any
decision ?will only be changed if the
review shows a clear error? ? was the
decision clearly wrong??
BUT LOADS OF EXPERTS AGREED
IT WASN?T A PENALTY?
That is irrelevant. There is only one
opinion that matters. When the referee
viewed the additional camera angles,
he was convinced it WAS a foul by
Tarkowski. ?Intent? or Chiesa having
lost control of the ball is not a factor.
Therefore, he had made a ?clear
error? and needed to change the call.
DID IT TAKE TOO LONG?
That is another subjective call. Jamie
Vardy said: ?That?s the worst thing
about it, not just players but fans too.
?It just says VAR?s in use. If you are
Watch
?n learn
ARE WE RUSSIAN THIS... OR
IS VAR WORLD-CUP READY?
on the pitch, you are just stood around
not knowing what?s going on and the
crowd is just sat there waiting.
?In other sports it?s up on a big
screen so everyone can see.?
WILL VAR SEE GAMES LAST TOO LONG?
VAR means every major, ?gamechanging? incident ? goals, penalties,
red cards ? is scrutinised.
The VAR official also looked at Alex
Oxlade-Chamberlain?s first-half tumble
and agreed it wasn?t a penalty.
WHY WERE ITALY ALLOWED TO
ENCROACH ON THE SPOT-KICK?
VAR can only intervene in penalties if
the encroaching player ?scores or is
directly involved in a goal? or ?prevents an attacker playing or being
able to play the ball?.
As Lorenzo Insigne?s kick went in,
the referee or his on-field assistants
should have picked up the issue.
WILL THE WORLD CUP BE CHAOS?
That is a genuine fear. Only a handful
of refs will have used VAR, which will
be remotely based at a Moscow hub.
Premier League clubs are set to vote
next month to put off using VAR for
another season to iron out the kinks.
But Fifa President Gianni Infantino
has made it clear the system will be
in use, irrespective of the problems.

BATTLE OF THE KEEPERS
PICK YOUR No1
By CHARLIE WYETT
GARETH SOUTHGATE knows who
would be his No 1 if England had to
play Tunisia in Volgograd today.

and Pickford
Thankfully for the Three Lions coach, he
still has over 11 weeks before he must make
public his team for the World Cup opener.
And while Southgate has refused to
confirm whether it is Jordan Pickford or Jack
Butland who holds the advantage, it is definitely �million Everton keeper, Pickford.
Even though, alarmingly, this is a player
who has played just twice for England.
As SunSport revealed on December 26,
Southgate made it clear to Pickford he was
expected to lose weight and get fitter to
become England?s World Cup keeper.

As a result, Pickford has a major ally

Pickford or Butland did not have much to
do in their games, so the scrutiny would have
been on distribution and communication.
Over the two matches, Butland actually
looked slightly more assured. Pickford was
guilty of overplaying and nearly getting
himself into trouble in Amsterdam.
Asked if he knew his No 1, Southgate said:
?Good question. If we had to play tomorrow
I think we know which way we would go.
?But we?ve another eight or ten league

GARETH SOUTHGATE has demanded ?absolute

England are to stand a chance at the World Cup.

BATTLE ON FOR No10 SHIRT
By NEIL
ASHTON
CHIEF FOOTBALL REPORTER
IN Dele Alli?s mind he is
good enough to play for
Real Madrid.
And
Gareth
Southgate
provided
the
sobering
reminder that the Tottenham
forward is still young enough
to be picked for England?s
Under-21s.
This
has
been
a
difficult,
frustrating international break for
Dele, 21.
He joined the England squad
just a few days after Spurs boss
Mauricio Pochettino claimed his
man was the best 21-year-old
footballer in the world.
But
Three
Lions
manager
Southgate clearly still needs some
convincing.
Dele is fighting for his place in
this England side, falling behind
Manchester City?s Raheem Sterling
and his deputy Jesse Lingard of
Manchester United in the battle to
wear the No 10 shirt at the World
Cup in Russia.
Dele has work to do now.
Southgate
said:
?I
have
a
problem because I have Marcus
Rashford, Jesse Lingard, Raheem
Sterling,
Harry
Kane,
Alex
Oxlade-Chamberlain
and
Jamie
Vardy ? so there is a huge choice
and I have to make those choices.
?I don?t foresee a scenario where
they don?t come to Russia, but I
am an England manager and I
have to make decisions.
?There is no reason Dele will
not come and he can make a huge
impact there.
?He has so much ability and
with all those guys he is another
one at an age where he could be
playing for the Under-21s.
?There was no ulterior motive to
leaving him out. It?s a bit like Kyle
Walker, it?s a bit like Ox, there are
others we wanted to learn more
about and we wanted to protect
Dele as well with his little
problem.
?He has the ability and I am
looking forward to seeing him
over the next few weeks. His
relationship with Harry Kane in
the team is also important.
?I can only reiterate that Dele is
a very important player.
?He wasn?t able to finish every
session and we had to manage the
problem he had when he came
into the camp.?
Dele?s
groin
injury
was
monitored during the international
fortnight, but it was not serious
enough to prevent him playing
against Italy on Tuesday.
Southgate simply decided not to
use him.
He likes the look of Sterling in
the No 10, the role in the hole that
seems to excite the forward.

Sterling took responsibility against
Italy, controlling England?s attacks
with those slalom runs and eyecatching dribbles.
He
looks
the
part
again,
especially after his man-of-thematch
performance
against
Holland.
Sterling will take some shifting
from that position.
Southgate added: ?If we play
3-4-3 then Raheem can play No 10,
as he did against France last year,
but could he play as one of two
forwards because he plays on the
wing for City?
?We know he likes playing
through the middle though and he
enjoys that.
?He
had
a
little
spell
at
Liverpool where he was behind
Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge,
running and dribbling through he
middle of the park.
?He is playing with confidence,
speaking with confidence, as we
saw before the game.
?Raheem, Dele and Jesse are
expressive players and they need
to feel freedom on the pitch.
?It is different for defenders
because they need structure, but
the forwards need structure as
well as freedom, and those guys
enjoy that.?
Southgate is tapping in to that.
This is his England, establishing
LINGARD
KANE
a playing style that these boys
must buy into if they are to stand
any chance of starting the World
Cup opener against Tunisia.
It is an admirable attempt, a
genuine effort to make an England
side meet Southgate?s exacting
standards.
We will soon see where it takes
him.
His next big task is to trim the
squad, to name his World Cup 23
plus the four or five players on a
provisional
list
in
case
of
emergencies.
Breaking the bad news is always
a big deal for an England coach,
but Southgate will do the dirty
work in a dignified, respectful
manner.
He added: ?I want to run a
performance camp rather than a
selection camp because then there
is a different feel for everybody.
?Sven did it the right way. Name
23 plus five on standby.
?If you have 28 or 30 who think
they have a chance then there?s a
lot of uncertainty and anxiety.
?I was there for Gazza when he
was left out of France 98 and I
was one of the next in to see
Glenn Hoddle.
?Mine didn?t take too long after
that.?

The Liverpool forward

England boss Gareth
Southgate is concerned
over Lallana?s fitness after
his serious thigh injury
suffered in pre-season.
But Lallana said after
his international return
against Italy on Tuesday:
?I?ve got a World Cup
coming up, some really
important league games
and the quarter-finals of
the Champions League.
?So if I had to be fit for
one part of the season,
then it?s the back end.?
Southgate called Lallana
the best performer in his
squad last year.
And Lallana said: ?I?m
confident enough in my
ability and in what I bring
to the squad.
?I

all

thinking,
?Where do I see myself

GOING away for Easter? Travel can often
account for the biggest chunk of your holiday
costs, so see if you can save with Loco2.com.
The award-winning website lets you search
and book train tickets in the UK and Europe ?
with no booking fee. You can buy tickets for
long and short journeys in a single transaction,
making it easy to compare the cost of rail travel
to flying.
You can also set a booking alert to notify you
as soon as your chosen fare goes on sale, to
get the best price. Website creator and cofounder Kate Andrews says: ?Busy families can
buy train tickets in just a few taps on
Loco2.com or via our free app.?
Here are Kate?s tips for families on a budget:
Book in advance. The cheapest tickets are
available as soon as booking opens and
the price tends to climb as fares sell out.
Most European trains can be booked at least
three months in advance, and some Eurostar
fares as early as six months before you travel.
Make a group booking. If travelling as a
family, you might be eligible for a discount
on train tickets so always check before you
start to book individual tickets. In France, the
!
$
Tribu fare offers a discount for groups of
between four and seven passengers
travelling together. In the UK, there are
GroupSave discounts for groups of three to
nine adults.
Pay less by seat-sharing or travelling
overnight. Many rail firms let kids up to four
years old travel free if they share a seat with an
adult. Loco2 will prompt you to enter the age of
child passengers when you search and
automatically assign suitable tickets.
You can also save cash on hotel rooms by
travelling overnight on a sleeper train.

BYE BOBBY
By OSCAR PAUL
FORMER Ipswich boss Bobby Ferguson has
died, aged 80.
Ferguson was Sir Bobby Robson?s coach
when the Tractor Boys won the Uefa Cup in
1981 and was in charge for five years after
Robson became England chief a year later.
The one-time full-back also had spells
working with Ipswich legend Terry Butcher at
Sunderland and Dave Mackay at Birmingham.
Ex-Ipswich defender Russell Osman said:
?He was somebody you respected. When he
FERGUSON . . . respect
spoke, you listened.?
CREWE will face a new
investigation if they fail to
deliver a proper report
into Barry Bennell?s crimes.
The League Two side are
one of ten to 12 clubs
which are the focus of the
independent review, commissioned by the FA, into
historical sexual abuse.
Clive Sheldon QC, the
lawyer
leading
the
FA-commissioned review,
has told a number of
clubs
to
deliver
a
?structured report? in
the next month or so ?
or he will then conduct
his own investigation.
Chelsea and Manchester
City, who have set up
their own QC-led probes,
are not thought to be in
the firing line.
But Crewe this month
stated it was abandoning
plans
for
its
own
independent inquiry into
serial paedophile Bennell.
The ex-Crewe and Man
City coach was jailed in
February for 30 years
after being convicted of
43 offences.
The club said it saw no
need to ?duplicate the
thorough enquiries? of
Cheshire Police.
Sheldon was hoping to
deliver his review to the
FA by Easter but is now
targeting September. He
will name any institutions,
clubs or individuals who
failed to respond correctly
to abuse allegations.
IT?S tight at the
top in League One
as Blackburn fight
it out with Wigan
and Shrewsbury for
those two automatic
promotion places.
We expect Rovers
to
be
ruthless
against
Bradford
City tonight.
Tony
Mowbray?s
side have won five
of their last six
games and can be
taken at 7/15 with
Sun Bets to win.
As League One?s
highest scorers this
season,
we
also
fancy them to net
three goals or more
? over 3.5 total
goals is 21/10 at
Sun Bets.
But play-off hopefuls Bradford aren?t
completely without
hope and they will
be pleased to see
the return of topscorer Charlie Wyke
at Ewood Park.
Sun Bets go 6/1
Wyke scores first.
DIAMOND: Blackburn to win,
7/15 with Sun Bets.
NEXT BEST: Over 3.5 total
goals, 21/10 with Sun Bets.
LONGSHOT: Charlie Wyke to
score first, 6/1 with Sun Bets.

FIFA have opened an urgent
probe after Paul Pogba and
other France players were
racially abused in their 3-1
friendly win over Russia.
Monkey chants were heard when
black players touched the ball
during the game in St Petersburg
on Tuesday. Manchester United
ace Pogba and Barcelona
star
Ousmane
Dembele were targeted.
Dembele had to suffer
verbal barrages when he
took corners ? as did
Pogba (right) after he
scored a free-kick.
Fifa confirmed it was
collecting evidence and
would contact the Fare
Network, which helps
world football?s governing body
investigate racism cases.
A Fifa spokesman said: ?We are
collecting
the
different
match
reports and potential evidence in
regards
to
the
discriminatory
incidents reported in the media.?
It is the third suspected case of

racism at the Krestovsky Stadium
this season ? with Uefa having
twice charged Zenit St Petersburg
for the behaviour of their fans in
Europa League games.
French sports minister Laura
Flessel said: ?Racism has no place
on football fields. We must act
together
at
European
and international level to
stop this unacceptable
behaviour.?
St Petersburg will host
SEVEN games at the
World Cup this summer,
including
the
match
between
Nigeria
and
Argentina on June 26.
This latest scandal ?
the chants at Dembele
were reported by a French pitchside photographer ? will increase
demands for Fifa to step in.
Piara Powar, head of the Fare
Network, said: ?So close to the
World Cup, questions are being
asked as to why it wasn?t dealt
with as it occurred during play.?

ZLAT?S ALL
FOLKS..
ZLATAN IBRAHIMOVIC proved
he is still a big hit at Manchester
United as he said his goodbyes.
He clenched his fist in front of Old
Trafford pal Eric Bailly yesterday
after the defender jokingly threatened
to ?kill? him for joining LA Galaxy.
The Ivory Coast ace was stunned ?
until Ibra, 36, burst into laughter.
Don?t mess with the best, Eric!
The African striker, 27, scored a cracking
goal and looked a real threat in Tuesday?s
warm-up win over Costa Rica in Nice.
But Sunderland hitman Khazri ? who is
on loan at Rennes ? should also have been
sent off for kicking out at Costa Rica?s
Kendall Waston (right).
Vancouver
Whitecaps
centre-back Waston said:
?In the World Cup he
would have got a red
card. In a friendly sometimes referees leave it.
?England will see what
happened and will try
to take advantage of it.
?When you know the
type of player someone
is, you try to do things
that might make them crazy and see their
team lose them with a red card.?
Gareth Southgate?s side face Tunisia in
Group G on June 18.
And Leicester midfielder Yohan Ben
Alouane, 30, revealed that clash with
England is already sparking banter with
Foxes pals Jamie Vardy and Harry Maguire.
He said: ?I have been talking about the
England game with Jamie Vardy, and I?m
sure when I get back there will be more
? he is always joking with me about it.?

LASCELLES . . . missed out
Gareth is
Jam-my
dodger
By DAVID COVERDALE
JAMAAL LASCELLES thinks
England
manager
Gareth
Southgate has his favourites
? and he is not one of them.
The Newcastle captain hoped
for a first Three Lions senior
call-up for the friendlies with
Holland and Italy following his
stand-out season.
But he was overlooked by his
former Under-21s boss Southgate,
with
Burnley?s
James
Tarkowski and Swansea?s Alfie
Mawson included instead.
Centre-half
Lascelles,
24,
admitted: ?I was waiting to see
if I got a text before the team
got announced and I spoke to
my agent, so I was disappointed
when I found out.
?But Southgate obviously likes
what he likes, he?s gone with
different centre-halves.
?I?ve played for England from
Under-18s to Under-21s and he
was the Under-21s manager at
the time.
?I know he?s been at a lot of
Newcastle games but he clearly
likes the other guys over me.
?I?ll just focus on Newcastle.
If anything, it will motivate me
more to kick on with Newcastle
and maybe prove him wrong.?
Lascelles
admits
he
has
improved massively this season
under boss Rafa Benitez.
And he has urged Toon chiefs
to do everything to keep him at
the club this summer.
Benitez has a year left on his
contract but has lost trust in
owner Mike Ashley after not
getting what he wanted in the
last three transfer windows.
Lascelles said: ?Bringing Rafa
in is the best thing this club
has done.
?Since he has been here,
things have been on the up. He
has brought the club and the
city together.
?He is an excellent manager,
he has won trophies, he has
worked
in
many
different
leagues and he knows what it
takes to be successful.
?It has only been positive
since he arrived.
?He?s been here two seasons
but you still want to impress
him, you want to do well for
him because he commands that
respect.
?With the manager we have
got, the fanbase, the stadium
and the history, everything is
there to grow.
?With this manager in charge,
if he stays, players will want to
come here.?
Newcastle
host
relegation
rivals Huddersfield on Saturday
in another battle at the bottom.
The Toon are 13th, four points
above the drop zone, and have
won their last two home games.
