only 52, and still a young
man.”
Meanwhile, Boris Johnson
has admitted he has given up
on the idea of becoming the
next Tory leader.
A source said: “If Boris think
the chances are against him,
he won’t go for it. He doesn’t
want to be humiliated by coming fourth or fifth.”
Mr Cameron’s spokesman
refused to comment on the
claim last night.

Romantic Rio’s rooftop proposal
By Frances Millar
LOVE was certainly in the air
as former England footballer
Rio Ferdinand and reality TV
star Kate Wright celebrated
their engagement after
almost two years of dating.
The ex-TOWIE star, 27,
accepted the romantic
rooftop proposal from the
sports pundit, 39, in front of
his three children during a
family holiday to Abu Dhabi.
The couple shared their
happy news on social media
with a photograph of them
cuddling.
Rio’s children Lorenz, 12,
Tate, 10, and Tia, seven,
looked on with delight as he
popped the question on a
helipad on top of the
St Regis Hotel in the United
Arab Emirates capital.
Taking to Instagram, Kate
wrote: “The perfect end to
our holiday... How could the
answer not be yes”.
Rio also posted a picture
of the moment with the
caption: “She said yes. How
these kids kept it
a secret I’ll
never know.”

The
pair met in
early 2017
through mutual
friends. The
former Manchester
United defender lost
his wife Rebecca Ellison,
34, to breast cancer in 2015,
and was bringing up their
three children alone.
He opened up about his
loss in the BBC
documentary Rio Ferdinand
– Being Mum And Dad, in
which he explored the
family’s grief.
On becoming a
step-mother to three, Kate
said: “I fell in love with Rio,
then I met the kids and fell in
love with them.
“I realised, ‘Wow, my life is
going to change.’ I couldn’t
be part of his life and not be
part of theirs.
“I knew it would be a
challenge, but if you love
someone you go with it and
deal with the difficult stuff.”

‘Amicable’ Ant and wife to divorce in weeks
Ant and Lisa on their wedding day in 2006
TV PRESENTER Ant McPartlin
and wife Lisa Armstrong will be
divorced by the end of the year, a
source close to the star
confirmed last night.
Ant wants “to move on
quickly”. He is paying her legal
bills and funded a summer trip
she took to Los Angeles.
Last month, a judge at
London’s Central Family Court
made no objection and Ant and
his wife of 12 years were granted
a decree nisi within 30 seconds.
Court documents show the
marriage had “broken down
irretrievably” and sources say
By Mark Jefferies
despite reports of a continued
rift, a financial settlement is in
sight.
The source said: “Ant is
paying for all of Lisa’s
legal fees.
“He is still helping her
financially, like when
she went on holiday to
LA when there was a lot
of attention on her.
“He is paying for her
fees on the divorce
and her media
lawyer fees. At
the moment it is amicable and
things are moving forward. Ant
wants the divorce done as
quickly and fairly as possible so
they can move on.”
The source said the hope was
for a settlement in “weeks
rather than months” and
completed before Ant
returns to TV next year.
He is due to start filming
Britain’s Got Talent in the
New Year and could
appear at the National TV
New love AnneMarie Corbett
Awards on January 22 in which
Ant and Dec will again have
nominations, despite the fact
Ant has been off work for most of
2018 fighting an addiction to
drink and prescription drugs.
In April, he was banned from
driving for 20 months after a car
accident while twice the limit.
He is willing to hand over half
of everything he has earned
during the marriage, which is
estimated at up to £62million.
Last month, Ant showed new
girlfriend Anne-Marie Corbett,
who used to be his PA, his
childhood haunts in Newcastle.

this right – and we know how to get
it right – I do worry the violence will
continue.”
Ms Sebire, the council’s lead on
serious violent crime, added: “This
does feel different.
“In the past people were more
careful about doing this in front of
cameras or in full view.
“There’s a disregard for the seriousness of the consequences.
“If their best friend being stabbed
to death in front of them isn’t an
incentive, I don’t what will be.
“So we need to be there for their
siblings.”
Force chiefs called for a new plan
which would see police, health and
education officials work together
to “intervene early” and prevent
youngsters from being sucked into
a life of crime.
Durham’s chief constable Mike
Barton told the Westminster conference: “I think it is the younger
siblings.
“When you look at these people
there are always family and other
people in the community where you
can look at what happened five
years ago.
“I think we need to look at seven
and eight-year-olds, not 10 to
11-year-olds. Increasing numbers of
primary school children are being
excluded and we need to look at
what has happened before and
learn from it. This isn’t going to go
away. It is certainly an epidemic. It
feels like a crisis.”

Young children are carrying weapons
given to under 18s. And startling
figures presented to yesterday’s
summit
revealed
that
69,000
­children were wounded by stabbings or beatings last year.
The shocking statistics also
showed 29,000 youngsters were
robbed, meaning they were exposed
to violence.
And the number of youths caught
carrying blades has also increased
by 64 per cent, compared with
22 per cent for adults.
Meanwhile, the number of under18s treated in hospital after being
stabbed with a blade rose by a fifth
in 2016/17.
Officials are concerned about the
rising number of children excluded
from school and warn that this
makes them susceptible to gangland grooming, dubbing it a
“pipeline of potential for this
violence”.
But police chiefs hope a properly
targeted public health approach
will stem the flow of children into
criminality.
Knife crime campaigners told the
Daily Express at least 247 people
had been stabbed to death on
Britain’s streets so far this year.
Ms Sebire, of Bedfordshire Police,
added: “Over the past 12 months it
feels different.
“We have always had people stabbing and shooting each other. But
the level of violence, it is not peak
and troughs, it is sustained.”
Ms Sebire said she was aware of
children as young as nine picking
up weapons.

Crack cocaine violence soaring
as drug dealers spread their evil
By Michael Knowles
VIOLENT drug dealers are now
running lucrative networks from
rural bases in the latest crime
“phenomenon”, one of Britain’s
top police officers revealed
­yesterday.
County lines groups traditionally export large amounts of
crack cocaine and heroin to
smaller towns, villages and seaside resorts from major cities.
But the networks are spreading so fast drug dealers – who
often resort to extreme levels of
violence to take control of the
local markets – are setting up
outside of cities like London
and Birmingham and targeting small towns hundreds of
miles away.
The Daily Express yesterday told how there are now
1,500 active lines across
the UK – worth £500million.
Police chiefs were
told

crack cocaine is
being sold on Britain’s streets and
this is fuelling a
large part of the
violence.
In 2013 the drug’s
purity was on average 36 per cent. This
soared to 71 per cent
last year and health
bosses yesterday warned
soaring numbers of people are
addicted to the drug and are
seeking ­treatment.
Nick Hunt, head of the Serious
Violence Unit at the Home Office,
told the Association of Police and
Crime
Commissioners
and
National Police Chiefs’ Council
summit that this had led to more
DRUGS dealers may be wicked
and evil – but they are not stupid.

almost 50,000 children missing from
the education system.
In 2016/17, 7,640 pupils were
excluded from school – 6,385
from secondary schools
and 1,255 from primary –
and 38,580 are in pupil
referral units amid
concern over their
behaviour.
Police chiefs said
there was a “significant amount of evidence these children
are more vulnerable
to gang violence”.
Officials yesterday
lines gangs sell is crack cocaine.
And a shocking Public Health
England report has revealed the
number of people being treated
for crack cocaine addiction soared
by 44 per cent in just two years.
The number of people needing
treatment reached 4,301 in 2017/18
– up from 3,657 in 2016/17. That
rise of 18 per cent came after 2,980
needed help in 2015/16.
Eytan Alexander, founder of
rehabilitation clinic firm UKAT,
said: “What we’re seeing is that
more and more people are entering treatment for crack cocaine
because of it’s low price tag and
ease of access to the drug. People
can order crack with one click of
their phone.
Craving
The purity of crack cocaine has
been blamed for a rise in violence
forces. There needs to be a focus
on what is happening in the
smaller forces.
“The Met exports county lines.
We need to deal with it there
because they are exporting it
from London.
“But it is also impacting on
county forces. Some of the county

In times of old, if there was an
attempt by city villains to move in
on a county patch, the local
detective inspector would have
claimed children as young as two or
three could show signs of anger and
emotional instability which could
later lead to them becoming
involved in crime.
The number of children
connected to gangs has also
increased.

“More and more youngsters are
taking cocaine and associating it
with a good night out.
“Our concern is for when those
youngsters grow up, aren’t going

“There’s a strong chance they
will turn to crack cocaine instead,
given the massive reduction in

“Treatment centres are overstretched and under-funded.

expected a crack down by his
CID officers and every effort
made to drive the dealers out of
town.
Informants would have been
tasked, drugs warrants obtained
and raids conducted.
On the streets, uniformed
officers would have been busy
stopping non-local cars and
searching any suspected
dealers. Now policing is in crisis
and cannot deal with the
problem.
There are currently 1,500
county lines. Last year it was
800, demonstrating the scale of
the issue. City dealers are
travelling to the shires and
pushing all manner of controlled
substances.
At the same time Lynne Owens,
just feels that this is central to what
we need to do. We want to get
upstream on this.”
Violent crime has escalated in
recent years, with 719 killings
recorded in the year to June and
robberies rocketing 22 per cent.
Police also recorded more than
100 knife crimes every day last year
as offences surged by 12 per cent.
Sex offences also rose by 18 per
cent over the same period.
But a public health approach also
relies on strong police action to
crack down on any offenders.
Chief Constable Dave Thompson
of West Midlands Police said: “The
public health-based approach in
Scotland did rely on a level of police
deterrence.
“You can’t do one without the
other. If you can’t deal with here
and now, you can’t deal with
upstream.”
Mr Thompson said the Home
Office should allocate funding to
areas worst affected, such as
London,
Birmingham
and
Manchester. The police warnings
came within hours of the Government launching its new strategy to
tackle serious and organised crime.

Teenager

By News Reporter
Police raid
the house of
a suspected
London drug
dealer as
part of the
war against
the county
lines gangs
A teenage boy was
yesterday being questioned
on suspicion of murdering an
esteemed doctor at the home
he shared with his fellow
academic wife.
Dr Barry Hounsome, 54,
who lectured at universities,
died of a head injury at the
£200,000 bungalow where he
lived with economist Natalia
Hounsome.
A murder inquiry was
launched after the death of
the lecturer, who specialised
in health science.
The medical professional
previously worked at the
University of Southampton.
Dr Hounsome, who has also
worked at Bangor University,
studied conditions including
Parkinson’s and dementia.
His wife, who neighbours in
the quiet road said is German,
is a lecturer in health
economics who has worked at
several universities in the UK
after completing her PhD in
Moscow, Russia, in 1996.
The 16-year-old suspect,
from Gosport, Hants, was
arrested after police were
called to the couple’s home in
the town on Monday night.
Yesterday the scene
remained taped off as
detectives investigated.
Devastated
head of the National Crime
Agency, has revealed that at least
five police forces are not running
operations to target the problem.
So while the dealers are
organised, the police are
disorganised.
And that it not the only problem.
Many of the police officers who
believed in old-fashioned
methods have long since retired.
Those that are left have been
re-educated on the orders of the
new breed of chief constables and
told that “celebrating diversity” is
more important than catching
criminals. As a result, they are
very unlikely to obtain drug
warrants or stop and search
suspects – too many in the police
believe such tactics to be “racist”.
A further problem is the lack of
cooperation and intelligence
sharing by police forces. Even if
an operation is conducted and
CCTV and surveillance
photographs are obtained of the
dealers, the images are unlikely to
be identified.
The villains are from a city area
– London, Liverpool or
Birmingham but the images
belong to a shire force and there
is no systematic way of sharing
them.
County Lines are bringing
misery to rural communities and
ruining lives. It also goes further
than drugs offences, as addicts
will commit more and more thefts,
burglaries and robberies to feed
their habit. The police need to get
back to old style methods and
sort out this problem.
Crackdown on ‘deadly’ organised crime
Strategy… Ben Wallace
MINISTERS declared war on Britain’s
underworld yesterday as it emerged that
organised crime costs the country at
least £37billion every year.
The National Crime Agency estimates
there are around 4,600 criminal gangs in
Britain posing a threat considered
graver than terrorism.
In a new drive against the menace, the
Government warned the “full force of
the state” will be mobilised to ensure
crime networks endure “relentless disruption”. The NCA’s director general
Lynne Owens said the range of serious
crimes has changed rapidly in volume
and complexity over the past five years.
“It means children being abused, the
vulnerable being trafficked, it means
cyber crime,” she said.
“It means criminal markets that trade
drugs, trade firearms, trade in people
and make profit as a result.”
However, so far just £48million has
been set aide for fresh initiatives at a
time when over-stretched police forces
are struggling to cope with rising crime
after savage funding cuts. Launching
the serious and organised crime strategy, Security Minister Ben Wallace said:
“Serious and organised crime is the
deadliest and most damaging national
security threat we face.”
Strategy priorities included “lifetime”
tracking of main offenders; intervention
in overseas communities which feed
recruits into organised crime groups
operating in the UK; tackling border
controls corruption; denying criminals
access to their finances.
The victim’s identity was
revealed after police removed
a grey Skoda Octavia from the
property. The bungalow’s
back window has been
smashed.
Walter Knight, a neighbour
and friend of the couple, said
he has been left devastated by
Dr Hounsome’s death.
Retired Mr Knight said the
“very intelligent” couple have
a teenage son.
Mr Knight said: “It’s such a
shame what’s happened, the
husband and wife were very
lovely people.
“She was from somewhere
in Germany, but I’m not
completely sure.
“They were very nice
people, they even got me a
Christmas card every year.
“They were very quiet, but
when you did speak to them
you could tell they were very
intelligent people.
“They had a son. I’m not
sure how old he is but I think
he is at college – I never really

Staff members Nusara Suknamai, 33, Kaveporn Punpare, pilot
Eric Swaffer, 53, and his partner
Izabela Roza Lechowicz, 46, also
perished. Police have formally

it suggests there was a problem
with the helicopter’s tail rotor.
Floral tributes continue to be

Families of those who died, players and members of the community have also been visiting.
Former manager Claudio Ranieri, 67, who guided the club to

SPORTS minister Tracey Crouch
dramatically quit Government last
night after an explosive row over
­addictive gambling machines.
Ms Crouch is furious that measures
to slash the maximum stake on fixed
odds betting terminals, dubbed the
“crack cocaine” of bookmakers, will not
take place for another year.
Currently players can gamble up to
£100 every 20 seconds on casino-style
games such as roulette.
Chancellor Philip Hammond said in
Monday’s Budget that the cut from
£100 to £2 would come in October 2019.
But many MPs claimed they had been
assured the change was due in April.
Announcing her decision, Ms Crouch
said the delay was “unjustifiable”,
­warning that “two people will tragically
take their lives every day due to
­gambling-related problems”.
Losing a popular and respected
minister is a hugely damaging blow for
Theresa May and is likely to anger Tory
rebels who could defeat the Government when the issue returns to the
Commons soon.
They could also try to amend the
Budget, creating an added headache
for the Government amid Brexit talks.
In a last-ditch bid to halt the resignation, Mr Hammond’s deputy Liz Truss
had hinted at a dramatic climbdown,
promising talks on the issue.
But it was not enough to stop the
MP for Chatham and Aylesford quitting
in a letter to the Prime Minister.

She wrote: “I cannot begin to explain
how many people got in touch to congratulate Government on its stance,
including addicts, their families and
also, sadly, those who have been left
behind after loved ones took their own
lives as a consequence of addiction.
“Unfortunately these changes are
now being delayed until October 2019
due to commitments made by others to
those with registered interests.
“From the time of the announcement
to reduce stakes and its implementation, over £1.6billion will be lost on these
machines, a significant amount of which
will be in our most deprived areas
including my own constituency.
“In addition, two people will tragically take their lives every day due to
gambling-related problems.
“For that reason as much as any other
I believe this delay is unjustifiable.
“The alignment of the stake reduction with an increase in remote gaming
duty was a condition put on by the
Treasury to provide fiscal neutrality,
but is not a technical necessity, so this
is no reason why implementation cannot come in sooner than October.”
She added that “there is never a good
time to resign” and said: “The fact of
Government is that ministers must
adhere to collective responsibility and
cannot disagree with policy, let alone
when it is policy made against your
wishes relating to your own portfolio.”

insisted in a letter to Ms Crouch there
had been “no delay in bringing forward
this important measure”.

Camilla backs African women facing abuse
THE Duchess of Cornwall wilted in
the 96F (35C) heat yesterday as
she backed a crusade to empower
women in West Africa.
In an echo of the Duchess of
Sussex’s promotion of feminist
causes, Camilla championed
groups aiming to stop girls from
undergoing child marriage and
female genital mutilation.
Camilla, 71, is a long-standing
campaigner on issues such as
By Richard Palmer
PRINCE Charles risked controversy
last night after raising injustice perpetrated on all sides in Northern Ireland
at a time when former British soldiers
face the risk of prosecution.
The heir to the throne, who was with
his wife Camilla in The Gambia on a
nine-day tour of West Africa, told the
country’s president and other guests
at a state dinner in the capital Banjul
that Britain had learned how difficult
it was to lay to rest the ghosts of the
past.
The Gambia has just rejoined the
Commonwealth, two years after electing President Adama Barrow to end
22 years of dictatorship under his
predecessor, former president Yahya
Jammeh, and is still trying to rebuild
its democracy.
Charles, who took the rare step of
donning glasses to make a speech,
said: “Knowing just how difficult The
Gambia’s recent history has been, and
how much pain and injustice the Gambian people have endured, I can only
express my heartfelt admiration for
the courage and determination you
have all shown in turning your back on
22 years of autocratic rule and embracing a peaceful and democratic transition of power. In so doing, this country
has offered an example to the world,
and proof of the enduring power of our
Commonwealth values.”
In the speech at the Coco Ocean
Hotel, he added: “We in the United
Kingdom know, from our bitter experience of conflict on the island of Ire-

land – and of the wrongs that were
done and the injustice that was perpetrated, on all sides – just how hard it
can be to lay to rest the ghosts of the
past. But it has to be done, if a future
is to be built which does justice to the
sacrifice of all those who came before,
and to the aspirations of all those who
come after.”
Former British soldiers are fighting
attempts to force them to face legal
action over their actions in Northern
Ireland during the Troubles.
And the Daily Express has headed
up a crusade to end the persecution of
veterans and give British troops
immunity from prosecution over historic incidents.
Charles – who like Camilla was making his first visit to The Gambia –
recalled hearing about the country
from his parents.
He said: “I can only say, ladies and
gentlemen, how sorry I am that it has
taken us all these years to come and
see you.
“I remember quite clearly The
Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh
returning from their own visit to The
Gambia in 1961, when I was just 13,
and telling me how much they had
enjoyed their time here.
“I remember seeing some of the
photographs that my father had somehow managed to take with his miniature Minox camera and thinking how
marvellous it would be to visit myself
one day. Little did I know that it would
take me nearly 57 years to get here.

have, all I can say, however, is that it
has been well worth the wait.”

Grooming
gang four
are jailed
By Henry Clare
FOUR members of a gang that
groomed and sexually abused
vulnerable girls were told their
crime “defies understanding” as
a judge jailed them yesterday.
Some of Mohammed Akram,
Niaz Ahmed, Mohammed Imran
Ibrar and Asif Bashir’s teenage
victims were plied with drugs and
alcohol before being abused.
The four were convicted at
Leeds Crown Court of offences
against the three girls between
2004 and 2010, which were
described as part of a cycle of
“depravity and exploitation”.
Judge Simon Phillips told them
the girls’ victim impact statements
made “harrowing reading”.
They included one who felt like
“used goods” at just 17 and only
managed to escape her abusers
when she became pregnant.
The four men were among a
20-strong gang that carried out
“inhuman” abuse of a total of 15
girls in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, from 2004 to 2011.
Ringleader
Their prosecution was split into
three separate trials. Akram,
Ahmed, Ibrar and Bashir were
found guilty of 10 offences last
month.
It was towards the end of the
second of these trials, in May, that
English Defence League founder
Tommy Robinson was arrested as
he reported about the case on
Facebook from outside the court.
The gang was spearheaded by
ringleader Amere Singh Dhaliwal,
36, of Huddersfield, who received
a life sentence in June with a minimum term of 18 years, for 22 rapes
involving 11 girls.
The four sentenced yesterday,
all from Huddersfield, were jailed
for a total of 36 years.
Judge Phillips told Akram, 33,
Ahmed, 54, Ibrar, 34, and Bashir,
33: “The way that you treated
these girls defies understanding.
This abuse was vile and wicked.”
The girls became “conditioned
and immersed” in the abuse, the
court heard, with one saying in a
statement that she felt as though
her life was at risk every time she
left her house.
Judge Phillips told the court
some of the complainants were
watching the sentencing via a TV
link and said: “It is likely that all of
these girls will never recover from
the abuse they suffered.”
Akram was jailed for 17 years for
trafficking for sexual exploitation
and rape and Ahmed received five
years for sexual assault and inciting a child to engage in sexual
activity.
Ibrar received three years for
trafficking for sexual exploitation
and actual bodily harm and Bashir
was sentenced to 11 years for rape
and attempted rape.

Now the EU-words
police ban mankind
and manpower in
gender ‘nonsense’
EXCLUSIVE
Star Keira
Knightley

premiere
last night
AXED TERMS
By Macer Hall
(and EU alternatives)
Political Editor
EUROCRATS were under fire last
night for secretly banning words
such as “mankind” and “stewardess” in translated documents.
Last month staff in Brussels
and Strasbourg were given a new
handbook entitled Gender Neutral Language In The European
Parliament.
They were told “to reduce as
much as possible the use of
gender-specific terms” and avoid
references to “women or men”.
Examples include replacing
“chairman” with “chair or chairperson”, “policeman or policewoman” with “police officer” and
“spokesman” by “spokesperson”.
The word “stewardess” must
be replaced by “flight attendant”
and school headmasters and
headmistresses should be referred
to as “director” or “principal”.
The book says: “The use in
many languages of the word ‘man’
in a wide range of idiomatic
expressions which refer to both
men and women, such as manpower, layman, man-made, statesmen, committee of wise men,
should be discouraged.
Hilarious
“With increased awareness,
such expressions can usually be
made gender-neutral.”
Separate guidelines are set out
for languages such as French or
German in which nouns have a
grammatical gender.
Explaining the reason for the
new rules, the handbook says:
“Gender-neutral
or
genderinclusive language is more than a
matter of political correctness.”
Last night Rupert Matthews,
Tory MEP for the East Midlands,
tabled a written parliamentary
question which led to the updated
guidelines being revealed.
He said: “The Eurocrats have
imposed their own version of
politically correct language on to
the approved English.
“The end result can be hilarious
– it can also hinder proper understanding during debates. More

Lee Rotherham, author of several books about the EU, said:
“Politically correct Euro-English
means we will need interpreters
for the interpreters.”
The handbook adds: “The aim
of these guidelines is to ensure
that, as far as possible, non-sexist
and gender-inclusive language is
used also in the Parliament’s documents and communications.
“Language powerfully reflects
and influences attitudes.
“In order to treat all genders
equally,
efforts
have
been
employed since the 1980s to propose a gender-neutral/gender-fair/
non-sexist use of language, so
that no gender is privileged, and
prejudices against any gender are
not perpetuated.”

Don’t skip flu jabs, elderly told
charities, GPs and pharmacists
yesterday urged pensioners to be
patient and still get their flu jabs
this year despite “very worrying”
supply delays.
With only one company producing this year’s new aTIV injection –
believed to be the most effective
protection yet – many over-65s have
been turned away from surgeries
and pharmacies after stocks of the
vaccine dwindled.
Both NHS England and the
­vaccine’s manufacturer Seqirus say
supplies will be restored fully by
mid-November.
Caroline Abrahams of Age UK
said: “We know that delays in rolling out the vaccination programme
this year will be very worrying for
some older people.
“However, it’s essential not to let
By Mark Reynolds
it slide or get put off. The flu can be
a serious health hazard for older
people.
“As we age, our immune system
becomes less resilient to flu and
the consequences can be very
serious indeed.
“The jab is free for anyone who is
65 and over and it’s important all
older people make sure they
protect themselves.”
Ms Abrahams said that as flu
often reaches its peak in January
and February, it is still worthwhile
for people to have the jab, even at
that later stage.
GP Rosemary Leonard said: “We
sometimes give patients the jab
when they are here for other things,
but we haven’t had that opportu-
nity this year because of the supply
of the vaccine being in dribs and
drabs.
“It can be hard for older people
to get to the surgery and we have
been having to turn patients away.
But some have coughs and colds
now and need to get the jab.
“It is of course still very important for people to get their jabs
despite the problems in supply.”
Pharmacists also urged pensioners to make appointments for the
jab, after checking its availability.
Leyla Hannbeck of the National
Pharmacy Association said: “We
understand there are difficulties
but it is incredibly important that
the over-65s get the flu jab.
“The flu season still has a long
time left to run.
“Over-65s are more likely to catch
flu and have complications from it.
Just like anyone else, they can
spread the flu too.
“Many community pharmacies
will be carrying the vaccine but if
not, they will either advise the
patient when it will be back in, or
refer them elsewhere.”
A spokesman for Boots said:
“Many Boots stores do have stock
of the vaccine for over -65-year-olds
[Fluad or aTIV] and are scheduling
customers for appointments.
“There is a temporary shortage
of stock in a number of stores in
some locations. We expect to be
fully back in stock by the end of
next week.”
Meanwhile, pensioners were still
complaining of being unable to get
a flu jab.
Adam Martin, 65, of north London, said: “I tried Lloyd’s last night
and they didn’t have any.
“I rang Boots and they said they
would not have any until midNovember. I’m asthmatic and like
to get my jab in October. I think it’s
outrageous.”
Supply problems have been
behind dwindling stocks.
Season
As a result of there being a single
supplier, delivery has been staggered. But all deliveries are
expected to be in place by midNovember in time for the heaviest
winter flu months.
Last year’s flu season was the
worst for seven years and many
elderly people ended up in hospital
with complications from the condition, caused by a viral infection.
NHS Digital figures show there
are currently about 10.3 million
patients aged 65 and over who are
registered with a GP practice in
England.
In the 2017/18 flu season, uptake
among over-65s was 73 per cent. If
this is maintained, 7.5 million will
receive the jab in 2018/19.
Flu can be very dangerous, leading to serious complications and
death, especially for the elderly and
people with respiratory and other
high-risk health conditions.
In rare cases, it can kill people
who are otherwise healthy.
The illness leads to hundreds of
thousands of GP visits and tens of
thousands of hospital stays a year.
Older people must protect themselves
vaccine a ‘no-brainer’
for heart patients
PEOPLE suffering heart and
circulatory problems were last
night urged to get their flu jabs as
the cold weather sets in.
Vaccinations can slash the risk
of death in people with coronary
heart disease by almost a quarter
and Maureen Talbot of the British
Heart Foundation said getting the
jab was “a no-brainer”.
The senior cardiac nurse said:
“If you don’t get your flu jab, you
could be putting yourself at
serious risk of having a heart
attack or stroke.
“Don’t just brave the cold this
winter, brave your flu jab. Taking
just five minutes out of your day
could literally save your life.”
Flu can weaken the immune
system, attack the heart muscle,
blood pressure and heart rates.
Heart and circulatory disease
kills one in four people in the UK
and accounts for more than
150,000 deaths each year. On
average, 420 people die from
cardiovascular diseases every
day – one every three minutes.
Sleepwalking
girl ‘hanged’
A GIRL died when she sleepwalked into
her wardrobe and accidentally hanged
herself, an inquest heard yesterday.
Hazel Georgina Bradley, 13, had a
history of sleepwalking, but she was
scared of her wardrobe after watching
the cartoon movie Monsters Inc.
She had gone to bed as normal but
was found dead the next morning
dressed in her school uniform.
Mother Rebecca, 43, said she had
hugged and kissed her daughter
goodnight after a “lovely chat” at about
9.20pm on May 23. But father Graham,
44, made the discovery at 6.45am the
next day at home in Caerphilly, Gwent.
Mrs Bradley said her daughter had
“issues with her wardrobe” because of a
childhood obsession with the film
Monsters Inc – where characters emerge
through doors to scare children.
“She always had to have the door
shut,” she said in a statement. “I am
convinced she was sleepwalking.”
A post-mortem examination confirmed
that the cause of death was hanging.
Gwent Coroner Wendy James, who
recorded a conclusion of accidental
death, said: “I cannot rule out the
possibility that death arose as a result of
a tragic accident.”

Quarter of Britons
will be over 65 as
population soars
OVER-65S will make up almost a
quarter of the population in fewer
than 20 years, say official projections.
As many as 24 per cent of people
will be aged 65-plus by 2037 and within
the next 50 years, there could be an
additional 8.6 million older residents
– about the population of London.
Those 65 and over will number
20.4 million accounting for 26.5 per
cent of the total, the Office for
National Statistics estimates.
By 2037, the most elderly part of the
country is likely to be West Somerset
with 44 per cent of its residents passing the benchmark. West Dorset,
North Norfolk and Rother, East
­Sussex, will have 40 per cent.
Britain’s
population
reached
66 million in mid-2017 and will be
almost 73 million in 25 years’ time.
Longevity experts warn Britain is
not prepared for the strains a growing
pensioner population will bring.

the Centre for Ageing Better, said:

should be good news but not if those
years are spent in poor health, in an
unsuitable home or in poor-quality
work.
“Our society is woefully underprepared for the changes we’re seeing
and too many people are at risk of
missing out on a good later life.
“We need urgent action across
health, housing and work to meet the
needs and aspirations of the ageing
population and reduce the inequality
that exists between rich and poor.”
Sarah Coates, of the ONS, said the
population has doubled in 140 years.
She said: “This growth is due to
there being more births than deaths
and more people moving to the UK
than leaving and as well as growing,
the population is also ageing.”
Ten years ago, one in every six
people was a pensioner. That rose to
almost one in five last year. The ONS
adds: “Pressure is expected to mount
on many sectors and services.”

Generic use of “man” is to be avoided

of more gender-neutral language was
accepted years ago, when dustmen

much-needed equality in the workplace.
It was no bad thing, either.
What is galling is the over-zealous way
in which the European word-police go

by Sara Thornton stoically
as they stalk the streets
looking out for wolf-­
whistlers to jail. Yes, Nottinghamshire Constabulary really
has been conducting a trial in
which they treat wolf-whistling
as a misogynistic hate crime.
“I’m delighted that we are leading the way towards tackling
misogyny in all its forms,” chief
constable Sue Fish recently
said.
Fortunately, there are some
senior police officers with a
greater sense of proportion,
like Sara Thornton, who chairs
the National Police Chiefs’
Council (NPCC). In a speech to
the joint summit of the NPCC
and the Association of Chief
Police Officers (ACPO) she
lambasted the warped sense of
priorities which is putting
fashionable causes above the
dreary, everyday business of
fighting violent and acquisitive
crime.
It is all very well devoting
time to tackling historic cases
of misogyny, she said, but serious crime is rising and police
forces are failing to get on top
of it. Homicide is at its highest

ment recently asked the Law
Commission to look into
whether the hate crime definition should be extended to
include offences linked with
misogyny, dislike of elderly
people and so on. The idea that
Britain is full of hatred towards
certain groups is coming to
dominate the Government’s
whole thinking on crime.
Of course, there is some hate
crime which really does deserve
to be taken extremely seriously
– people threatening worshippers
emerging from a mosque or daubing swastikas on synagogues –
but then threatening behaviour
has always been a crime.
T
he new obsession with
hate crime is about
something very different. It is trying to take very
minor incidents of rudeness
and blow them up into serious
offences.
The concept of hate crime is
being used as a political tool –
such as by the Oxford academic
who reported the then-Home
Secretary Amber Rudd for a
hate crime in her 2016 speech
to the Tory party conference,
for proposing ways of reducing
migration.
West
Midlands
Police had to investigate and,
while they concluded no crime
had been committed, they nevertheless had to record it as a
non-crime hate incident.
The problem is the catch-all
definition used for hate crime –
“any criminal offence which is
perceived, by the victim or any
other person, to be motivated
by
hostility
or
prejudice
towards someone based on a
personal characteristic” – is an
open invitation for anyone to
report someone they don’t like
as a hate criminal. Surely it
should be defined as anything
that a reasonable person would
think of as a hate crime.
I know many police forces
feel they have unfairly taken
the brunt of recent financial
cuts. They have a case.
Even while declaring an end
to austerity in his Budget,
Chancellor Philip Hammond
cut the Home Office budget by
£100million.
But refusing to investigate
burglary, theft and fraud in
order to prioritise the investigation of fashionable noncrimes, such as people being a
little rude to each other, is not
going to help make the country
safe.
Hopefully, the Government
and other police chiefs will take
Sara Thornton seriously.

Boris Johnson refers to the

be the premier of it asap and no

have we stopped shuddering over
the Windrush injustices (Home

for us, and Afghan interpreters
who helped our boys at daily risk
of their lives, have been required
to take DNA tests (Home Office
again). Nowhere in British law is
this required. Now the PM has
apologised – again.
With all this maladministration
on the public payroll it must be
clear even to Beaming Boris that
there has to be a considerable
amount of dross in our civil
service. At the moment those
responsible for hugely expensive
fiascos are simply eased away to
another department to carry on
shuffling paper to no point at all.
In the private sector the reward

SOME years ago, during his last visit
to London, I had dinner and drinks
with a Norwegian, even then very elderly,
called Joachim Ronneberg. He has just
died at the age of 99. So who was he?
In February 1943, at the age of just 23,
he led five other Norwegian commandos
of the Resistance into a highly protected
Nazi factory at Telemark. The plant was
producing deuterium oxide, or heavy
water, a vital last ingredient to make
possible Adolf Hitler’s basic atomic bomb.
Those six young men destroyed the
plant completely and set it on fire. Had
Hitler ever possessed a rudimentary
atomic bomb, even in the closing months
of the war, he would have used it.
Probably on London. So rest in peace,
Joachim, and thank you.
how much more of this shambles do we have to put up with?
Some time in the future scholars will write the
history of the last four years of this decade.
I suspect they will be weeping as they labour. Last
week a much-trumpeted meeting of the 1922
Committee decided not to seek a new party leader
and British prime minister after all. It fizzled out
into a damp squib.
Two years ago there was a contest for the
vacant leadership when David Cameron quit
after losing the referendum. That too was a
shambles. Michael Gove turned on lead candidate
Boris Johnson who then lost his nerve and quit.
Then another withdrew. It came down to two,
with the choice going to the membership. Then
Andrea Leadsom made a silly remark about
childlessness, so she felt she had to quit. That left
just one – arch-Remainer Theresa May. So the
membership never got its chance to choose. Mrs
May surrounded herself with fellow-Remainers
and has been in charge of Brexit ever since. Now
the EU team in Brussels sits open-mouthed with
amazement as fiasco after fiasco is presented to
them. All they have to do is veto them all in order
to win hands down.
They are not the only ones to be flabbergasted.
So is the once-loyal Tory membership, staring in
disbelief at the ongoing shambles.
When will it ever end?

Was there any need for “professional huntress”
Larysa Switlyk to gloat over the magnificent
animals she was allowed to shoot on the Scottish isle
of Islay? A scientifically conducted cull to preserve
the eco-balance may occasionally be necessary but
the killing of superb animals should always be met
with regret at the necessity – not pleasure.
I write as one who has done a bit of shooting – but
always pests (rabbits, wood pigeons) or farmed
creatures (pheasant, partridge) destined for the
dinner table. A cull is not a fun-filled wipeout of
anything that moves. It is a careful removal from the
gene pool of the old, injured, sick and starving for the
betterment of the whole breed.

ACTRESS Sheridan Smith has
admitted she “lost it” and ran
away from showbusiness after a
“massive meltdown” when she
found out her father Colin had
terminal cancer and then died.
The 37-year-old pulled out of
her hit West End show Funny Girl
for several months because of
stress in 2016.
Speaking openly and in-depth
about her struggle with his death,
Sheridan has tearfully reflected
on the two years since losing her
80-year-old father at the end of
2016 and the effect it has had on
her professional life.
Sheridan said: “I kind of lost it
a bit after he died. I’ve come out
the other side now and I need to
get it all out through my music.
“In public it looks like I’ve
moaned about everything with
my dad dying, but that’s not
the case. I just had a massive
meltdown.

“As soon as dad got that diagnosis I thought ‘I’m not leaving
your side, I’m not leaving you.’
“My mum said, ‘Well, you’ve
got to get back, you’ve got the
show, you can’t let people down’
and rightly so.
“People had bought tickets a
year in advance and I hate letting
people down.
“They’ve taught me that the
show goes on, even if you’re ill,
and I get that.
“But at the time I was thinking,
‘Hang on a minute, reality check,
I don’t want to leave my dad’.
“My dad was saying the same –
‘Don’t worry about me’ – but how
can you not, he was my rock.
“I just didn’t want to go back.
“I went back and I got on the
train to do the show and I
thought, ‘I can’t do it.’ It just felt

all been in the public eye.
“Everyone has wobbles in life,
don’t they?”
Sheridan cancelled appearances on stage as well as a
headline slot at the Royal Variety
Performance, later citing “stress
and exhaustion”.
But she has now turned her life
around, releasing her self-titled
album of pop classics to critical
acclaim in October last year and
then going on a nationwide tour
earlier this year before heading to
the recording studios again.
Sheridan makes the candid
comments in a new ITV documentary which sees her return to
the town where she grew up.
She introduces her new second
album A Northern Soul to her
home town of Doncaster with a
special performance in a venue
close to the hearts of both
Sheridan and her family.
Joining Sheridan on the poignant trip is fiance Jamie Horn.
The pair reflect on Jamie’s
recent proposal and returning to
Doncaster.
She also plays a gig at her
father’s favourite social club, The

BRITAIN’S unhealthiest high streets
have been revealed in a report published by an influential charity today.
The Royal Society for Public Health
has ranked the 70 largest towns and
cities outside London, according to
the impact of their high streets on the
public’s health and wellbeing.
Using factors such as whether businesses encouraged healthy lifestyle
choices or promoted social interaction,
each town was given a score on the
“Richter scale of health”.
Grimsby was the country’s unhealthiest high street, followed by Walsall,
Blackpool and Stoke-on-Trent.
Meanwhile, Edinburgh was crowned
Britain’s healthiest city, followed by
Canterbury, Taunton and Shrewsbury.
The average life expectancy for
people living in areas with the 10 highest scores was two-and-a-half years
longer than for those in the 10
unhealthiest areas.
RSPH chief executive Shirley Cramer
said: “Our Health on the High Street
rankings illustrate how unhealthy
businesses concentrate in areas which
already experience higher levels of
deprivation, obesity and lower life
expectancy.
“Reshaping these high streets to be
more health-promoting could serve as
a tool to help redress this imbalance.”
Changes to high streets that influenced the rankings included the growing number of fast food outlets, which
soared by 4,000 (eight per cent) in
England between 2014 and 2017.
The report found the most deprived
areas had five times more fast food
shops than the most affluent ones.

Deprivation
It also noted that “empty shops are
most numerous in areas of high deprivation” and the average high street
vacancy rate increased from seven per
cent in 2007 to 11 per cent in 2017.
The RSPH has now called for the
Government to introduce new measures, such as providing business rates
relief for businesses that promote good
health and a requirement for those
selling food to reduce the calories in
their products.
Ms Cramer added: “While we broadly
welcome the package of measures
announced by the Chancellor of the
Exchequer this week, we are concerned
that they do not go far enough.
“Local authorities, who are well
placed to make changes, are currently
operating with one hand tied behind
their backs.
“This is due to ongoing funding cuts,
particularly in some of the more
deprived areas that feature prominently in these rankings.
“Many local authorities are doing
good work with the resources they
have, but they need to be backed, both
financially and with enhanced powers,
by central government if they are to
succeed in reshaping high streets for
the better.”
Welcoming the report, Michael
Chang, project and policy manager at
the Town and Country Planning
Association, said: “We shouldn’t underestimate how important the British
high street is to everybody’s daily
lives and the important contributing
role town planners and the planning
system have to effect change to healthier high streets.”

The unhealthiest high street in Britain is in Grimsby, according to the latest research
There are no shops
you can just go in to
buy a salad.
I’ve lived here all my
life and it is just
getting worse.
Grimsby needs a lot
of financial investment
to get back on its feet.
People say they don’t
feel safe.
Chandelle Thomas, 19
PEOPLE have a choice,
but for economic
reasons they’re pushed
to buy the takeaways.
The other problem is
security. People are
scared to come into the
town with their kids in an
evening, because
there’s always
something happening.
Idris Inal, 39
I DON’T think there are
any more takeaways
than on any other high
street really.
But there is a very low
average salary as well
as the demise of the
fishing industry.
Grimsby has been let
down by central
government.
William Cuff, 74
There’s not really any
healthy options. I
mean where can you
go to get a salad or
anything like that?
We’ve got
McDonald’s, Subway,

more investment and
more choice.

Alarm over 200 shopping malls which could go bust
‘Anchor tenants’ such as House of Fraser are under threat
MORE than 200 shopping centres risk
going bust, with a “catastrophic” impact
on local areas, experts warned yesterday.
Malls across Britain worth £7billion are
in danger of going into administration
amid a wave of store closures.
Areas most at risk are believed to
include ageing shopping centres in
smaller towns. Many of the sites are
owned by overseas private equity firms.
The centres face a worrying future with
many falling into a downward spiral.
“Anchor tenants” such as Debenhams
have announced 50 closures, with further
cuts feared at House of Fraser.
The demise of BHS and ToysRUs has
also had a knock-on effect.
Owners have been hammered by a
toxic combination of soaring costs and
competition from online rivals such as
By Graham Hiscott
Amazon. A report from APAM, an asset
management firm, said the 200 malls at
most risk needed to raise fresh finance to
fund “much-needed redevelopment”.
Nelson Blackley, of Nottingham
Business School, said: “If centres close,
particularly in small towns, it will be
catastrophic. If a major anchor store
moves out, that has a halo effect on
other stores in that centre. It’s a
downward spiral – you can’t fill shopping
centres with nail bars and vape shops.”
Mr Blackley cited the example of
Nottingham’s Broadmarsh Centre, where
the BHS store still lies empty.
The fear is that the UK goes the way of
the US, where mass store closures have
led to “ghost malls”. While the centres
most at risk are believed to be on high
streets, out-of-town malls are also
struggling. Last week industry giant
Intu, which runs Manchester’s Trafford
Centre and Arndale malls with Lakeside
in Essex, cut the value of its estate by a
further £300million.
The firm, which has 17 centres,
responded by earmarking excess land for
5,000 homes. In July, rival Hammerson
put its out-of-town retail parks for sale.
Meanwhile, supermarkets with massive
stores are trying to get other retailers to
rent space. Experts say out-of-town
shops will have to be converted to other
uses. Online firms could turn some into
warehouses to speed up deliveries.
The Budget has proposed changes to
make it easier to convert empty shops
into homes and offices.

Sir David tops poll of
our favourite voices
SIR David Attenborough has been
voted Britain’s favourite voice.
The 92-year-old beat Hollywood
star Morgan Freeman to claim the
top spot.
Actor Stephen Fry came in third,
followed by Dame Judi Dench and
James Bond star Sir Sean Connery.
Other famous names to make the
top 50 include former US president
Barack Obama, actor Samuel L
Jackson and the Queen.
Idris Elba, heavily tipped to
become the next 007, made it to
number 11 in the list, with Welsh
singer Sir Tom Jones close behind.
A spokesman for Scrivens Opticians & Hearing Care, which carried
out the study, said: “We recognise
how different voices sound and have
our own personal favourites, from
By Rob Knight
the inspirational and most trustworthy to those that soothe and
move us emotionally.
“The power of the spoken word
can’t be underestimated, communication is an essential part of our
mental wellbeing.”
The top preference for women’s
voices is soft, upbeat and husky,
which fits with the few that made
the top 20, including Joanna
Lumley, the Queen and Dame Helen
Mirren.
For men, the top preferences are
deep, slow and soft.
Donald Trump topped the poll of
most annoying voices, closely
followed by Celebrity Juice host
Keith Lemon.
By Adam Aspinall
Sir David Attenborough is No1
A GROUP of former dinner ladies who
scooped £25million on the lottery say
the windfall has not changed them at
all – and one of them is still driving a
15-year-old Honda.
A year on from winning £25,476,778.30
four of the syndicate of six, from Port
Talbot, south Wales, have revealed
how little their lives have
changed.
Louise Ward, 38, Julie
Amphlett,
51,
Sian
Jones, 55 and Doreen
Thompson, 57, all still
live in the steel town,
shop at Lidl and go
on holiday to Tenby.
Whereas
many
people
might
be
tempted to buy a
sports car and a mansion, the caterers, who
spent a combined 120
years dishing out food to
patients at Neath Port Talbot
Hospital, insisted the money would
never change them.
Julie Amphlett, who worked at the
hospital for 32 years, said: “I haven’t
even moved house, why would I? We
don’t know anyone anywhere else?
“I thought about treating myself to
a luxury car so I took a test drive in an
Aston Martin but it frightened me to
be honest, so I still get about in my
15-year-old Honda.
“I might treat myself to a Mini, but
that’s about it, I am actually more
careful with my money now not less.”

winners drives
Grandchildren
The fun-loving group revealed they
have invested most of their money in
their own homes and on their families,
buying them houses nearby and
spending time with their grandchildren.
They are determined to keep their
feet on the ground but admitted they
are still coming to terms with the
massive win.
Sian Jones said: “It was overwhelming at the beginning. Don’t get me
wrong it’s very nice not working, but
you do miss the structure and
seeing the other girls.
“It was a big part of my life,
I have devoted my time to my
grandchildren.
“I don’t spoil them though and try
to keep them grounded.
“We still shop in Lidl and places like
that, even if people do look at you
funny sometimes.”
The biggest change for one of the
winners, mother-of-two Louise, was
marrying her fiance Mark Haran, who
has now given up his job at the Tata
steelworks.
When she won the money
last year, she revealed she
had considered quitting
the syndicate due to
the cost, although it
was her numbers
which won the jackpot, saying at the
time: “Imagine if I’d
stopped, we’d never
have won.”
Yesterday she was
all smiles as she sipped
champagne in the hotel
where she tied the knot in
March.
She said: “It was booked a year
before we won the money and we just
kept it exactly the same, no bells or
One year on... winners, from left, Julie
whistles, the only difference was we
could have more guests on the night
and we had a great time. We enjoyed
it, let’s put it that way.
“We were having the day
we wanted anyway just
did not have to worry
about it. It was nice to
just pay it all off and
go on a honeymoon
to Cancun which we
could
not
have
afforded
beforehand.”
The
new-found
riches have not meant
their partners have
given up work.
Julie’s husband is still
working as a painter and
decorator, Doreen’s husband has
started a luxury bus company and

back in the truck and take
off with the vehicle.
A resident of the street
in Golders Green, north
London, said the theft was
outrageous.
“It’s a residential street
and the sheer speed they
did it in made it even more
shocking.”
The CCTV shows the
car was taken at 9.30am
on October 17. Police are
still investigating.
AIRPORTS could be forced to follow
normal licensing hours in a bid to
crack down on drunken and
disruptive behaviour.
Under current rules, the sale of
alcohol beyond the security gates at
international airports in England and
Wales is not regulated.
But the Home Office has launched a
review to consider whether high street
laws should be extended into
departure halls.
This would see airport pubs,
restaurants and duty-free shops
forced to delay selling alcohol until
10am.

Airports face
curb on hours
for drink sales

A survey by the Unite union of 4,000
cabin crew has previously found that
87 per cent of staff from British-based
airlines witnessed drunken passenger
behaviour at UK airports or on flights
from here in August 2017.
Travellers can face up to two years
in prison or an unlimited fine for
drunken behaviour on an aircraft.
The move has already been backed
by the House of Lords. The
Government is asking the public for
views in a three-month consultation.
Home Office Minister Victoria
Atkins said: “Air travel often marks
the start of an exciting holiday abroad
and airports are places to eat, drink
and shop as we wait to board flights.
Most UK air passengers behave
responsibly when flying.
“But any disruptive or drunk
behaviour is entirely unacceptable.”
She said the travelling environment
should be “safe and enjoyable”.

The long-distance lover
Ken, 100, clocks up 300,000 miles seeing sweetheart
United
Kingdom
FRANCE
Ken has flown 300,000 miles in 27 years to see
Trudi in Vienna. Inset, map shows his travels SPAIN
CENTENARIAN Ken Pilgrim is a
dedicated long-distance lover, travelling 300,000 miles to meet his partner.
Over three decades Ken flew to
Austria five times a year to be with his
long-term partner Trudi Henkle, 93.
Widower Ken, 100, first fell for Trudi
on a visit to the capital Vienna 27
years ago with his late son Rodney, a
former Conservative party agent.
The couple met up again the following year in England, where their love
blossomed. Over the following years
they would spend a month together
in Vienna, a month in England and
then a month apart.
Ken, of Taunton, Somerset, estimates he has travelled to and from
Austria five times a year for 27 years
– 300,000 miles in air travel alone.
He said: “I’ve covered a lot of
miles and we’ve both spent
thousands on travel
over the years. But
it’s all been lovely.”
Although Ken
is no longer able
to travel abroad

Trudi flies over
to see him as
often as she
can. And on

Taunton to

Trudi said: “I
love coming to
Taunton to see
Ken. The people are
so polite here. I get
By News Reporters
frustrated when I have to go back to
Vienna.”
And she said of their relationship:
“I think we keep each other young.”
Ken had lunch with his family and
friends on Sunday, followed by a party
on Monday when he celebrated his
century with a flute of champagne.
He revealed that he broke his strict
drinking rule for his special day – he
drank slightly more than his daily
ration of half a glass of wine.
Ken was born in Northampton
during the last days of the First World
War. He had two sisters, one of whom
died aged 99. Still revelling in a spot of
sibling rivalry, Ken added: “I’ve just
beaten her.”
Trudi and Ken on trip
Tipple
Ken worked for 38 years as a
designer of electrical equipment with
Ford Motor Company, both in the UK
and in Cologne, Germany.
He married in 1943 and had two
sons, although both they and his wife
have died.
Ken moved to Taunton several
years ago to be closer to his nephew,
retired police officer Nic Gardner who
is one of his few remaining relatives.
He still lives independently, drives
and gets up early every morning for
his daily shopping trip to Tesco.
Ken puts his youthfulness down to
his daily tipple of wine – and of course,
his relationship with Trudi.
He said: “I have half a glass of red
wine a day. That and a regular life may
be the secret to reaching 100.”

The Great War

DISCUSSING his eventful time in the
restaurant trade, Sir Michael Caine recalls:
“My business partner Peter Langan [at
central London’s Langan’s Brasserie]... he
died trying to murder his wife. He was
going to set fire to her. He fell over and set
fire to himself.”
Hellraiser Langan, infamous for his
boozy antics at diners’ expense, passed
away aged 47 in 1988, six weeks after the
blaze at his Essex home. His estranged
wife Susan escaped the flames by leaping
from a first-floor balcony. The Irishman,
who had cans of petrol in the wardrobe (he
allegedly wanted to set fire to them both)
eventually died in hospital following smoke
inhalation and burns.
Also noting his one-time partnership
with formidable culinary star Marco Pierre
White, 85-year-old Caine remembers
customers having to endure colourful
language coming from the kitchen.
“You could hear them swearing. Gordon
Ramsay was the sous-chef,” he says. The
actor happily concludes: “I don’t own any
restaurants anymore.”

DAME Joan Collins reveals the unpleasant
experience of being targeted for online abuse
has dissuaded her from making political
comments on Twitter.
While known for regularly providing
updates to fans on social media, the
85‑year‑old now explains: “I only post
anodyne pictures. I refuse to post anything
political. About two years ago I tweeted, ‘Mrs
May, our Prime Minister, made an inspiring
speech last night.’ I got such hate mail. That’s
when I decided I would never say anything
controversial again.”

Reminded of stories
concerning the pair’s feud
(including a claim Winger once broke wind

“There’s something true in there.”
MacLaine, who won an Academy Award
for her portrayal of Winger’s mother, has
more bluntly remarked: “I hated her!”

Tom Watson is now warned his weight battle
is far from over. High-profile Ukip politician
Suzanne Evans, 53, who alarmingly reveals
she goes to the gym “three times a day”,
advises him on BBC Two’s Politics Live:
“Sorry to tell you this, Tom, I had a fat disorder
for many years, I really struggled with my
weight. That’s the hard bit, keeping it off.”
Watson, 51, sarcastically responds: “Thanks
for the note of optimism!”

OVER THE TOP: A less dangerous vers ion as troops find sporting relaxation behind the lines
W
By Dominic Midgley
hen the First World War broke out,
Ernest Brooks was the Royal Family’s
official photographer and his most
famous image was a picture of
King George V on a tiger hunt in India.
But in January 1915, at the age of 39, he
enlisted in the Royal Naval Reserve and embarked
on a career as Britain’s first war photographer,
spending time on the Western Front, in Italy and
the Dardanelles.
By the time the war ended in 1918 Brooks had
taken over 5,000 pictures, more than a 10th of all
British official photographs shot during the conflict,
many of them among the most iconic of the war.
Apart from candid images of soldiers on the
frontline, he had a fondness for the dramatic use of
silhouette, with one famous image showing soldiers
walking along a ridge
with the sun behind
them. But his career
was not without
controversy.
Brooks, who
ironically used a
German-made Goerz
Anschütz camera,
landed in trouble at
Gallipoli, where he
recreated action to
show troops in a
heroic light. Fellow
journalists were
furious, the Army
banned staged
images as a result of
the incident and he
vowed to never again
fake a picture.
A farm labourer’s
son from Berkshire,
CONTROVERSY: Ernest Brooks
Brooks had grown
up in Windsor where his father was employed on the
royal estate. After leaving school in 1890 at the age of
14, he too began work in Windsor Great Park.
Brooks’s first encounter with photography came
when he was hired by the widow of a diplomat whose
daughters had cameras. He was entrusted with
developing the images and found himself fascinated.
He began taking portraits of royals and other
notable people he would run into at Windsor and
worked as a freelance newspaper snapper before
joining the royal household.
Despite his distinguished wartime service, which
led to him being honoured by both France and
Belgium and awarded an OBE and British Empire
Medal, Brooks’s career ended in disgrace.
In 1925, after a photo was released of the Prince of
Wales – the future King Edward VIII – dressed up in
a kimono and wig for a theatrical production, Brooks
was dismissed and stripped of his official honours.
He continued working until 1936, but struggled
with alcoholism. It is believed he had been suffering
from post-traumatic stress disorder since the war.
He lived with his wife in Hendon, north London,
and was in his early 80s when he died in 1957.
l The Royal British Legion is leading a national
movement to say “Thank You” to the generation who
lived through the war. That’s not just the British
forces, but those who fought alongside them from
countries all over the world, as well as the people
who played their part on the home front. Find out

Excuses and rip-offs will
no longer be tolerated
Letter of the day
A messed up
Brexit won’t
fool anyone
I WAS very pleased to read the
article highlighting the way in
which many insurance companies
are ripping off loyal customers
(“Insurance giants are warned to
end rip-offs that penalise the loyal”,
November 1).
However I have no faith in the
so-called independent regulators
when it comes to insurance or
energy supplies and telecoms.
The acid test is when writing to a
named CEO of a utility or regulator
and being completely ignored or, if
you are lucky, receiving some
pathetic reply from a junior pen
pusher full of excuses and
meaningless platitudes.
And let’s not forget that these
“captains of industry” are earning
stellar salaries and bonuses that
make Theresa May’s pay packet
look like pocket money by
comparison.
Alfred Bright,
Harrogate, N Yorks
I THINK all those who voted to leave the EU
ought to be very sceptical over what Dominic
Raab is cobbling together by way of a deal
(“Brexit deal in 21 days”, November 1).
Please Mr Raab, don’t come back to Britain
with a botched-up plan that keeps us tied to
the protection racket that is the EU because
not only will you and Theresa May fail to get
that deal through Parliament but it won’t wash
with Brexit voters regardless of the way we
voted at the last general election.
Any compromise that betrays the
democratic referendum vote will not be
tolerated and would result in the Conservative
Party not only losing millions of votes at the
next election but possibly for years to come.
We, the British people, could be fooled once
but as the saying goes, “Fool us once shame on
you, fool us twice shame on us”.
So be very aware, should you take the
electorate for fools you will find out that we are
smart-thinking British bulldogs who will bite
back.
Anthony Todd,
Barnsley, S Yorks
UK should decide its future
not unaccountable cronies
George Osborne still doesn’t get
it does he (“Osborne ‘out of touch’
on immigration” November 1)?
Brexit is not about immigration,
the economy, trade or security. It’s
about who determines those
outcomes.
Should it be British citizens or
an unelected group of foreign
businessmen that make up the EU?
We were always cold-shouldered
because we were not in the euro,
even though the UK was one of the
biggest funders of the EU.
David Cameron went in wanting
concessions and the EU said no,
therefore the country voted out
and rightly so.
The Remainers should get
themselves some backbone and
stand up for their country, instead
of being Europe’s lapdogs.
Ron Giles,
Heighington, Co Durham
Home Office’s criminal bid
to tackle knife epidemic
The suggestion that the Home
Office is running out of ideas to
tackle knife crime infers that it had
some to start with (“Big Brother
warning over £500,000 ‘game’
targeting crackdown on knife
crime”, October 31).
That government department
couldn’t organise a night of beer
and skittles in a brewery. It has a
long history of failing to protect the
British public, wasting huge
amounts of money in the process.
Good luck to Home Secretary
Sajid Javid in sorting out the mess
that confronts him.
One hopes his experience of the
real world may spare him being
sacrificed on the Home Office altar
of incompetence like his
predecessors.
Mike Crump,
Wolverhampton, W Mids
Gross amounts for statues
are the height of stupidity
As India’s Prime Minister Narendra
Modi unveils the 182-metre tall
Statue of Unity, which cost more
than £335million, it is a sobering
thought that the UK is still giving
£98million in foreign aid to the
country (“World’s biggest statue
sparks anger with poverty hit
farmers”, October 31).
Not content with having the
largest statue in the world, India is
currently spending a similar
amount building an even taller one
– the 212-metre Chhatrapati Shivaji
memorial.
Why are we borrowing money to
give foreign aid to India, when it
PLAN: Dominic Raab must deliver what the country wants
can afford over £600million for two
colossal monuments?
Otto Inglis,
Edinburgh
especially when we have so many
domestic issues.
It really is time to put a stop to
this obscene waste of our money.
Jon Sell,
Mundesley, Norfolk
Tall order to expect India
to use overseas aid wisely Politics is serious business
How pleased I was to see that
not just simple child’s play
India has used £335million, at a
time when it is taking our overseas
aid, to complete the world’s tallest
statue.
If that is not enough, India has
plans to build a second even higher
and more costly one.
Hopefully the taxpayers of this
country will continue to support
the Government’s overseas aid
policies to ensure that more
ventures such as this can be
planned and completed worldwide.
Patrick Higgins,
Rainham, Kent
Stop throwing our money
around like it is confetti
ACCORDING to Theresa May,
Britain should be proud to support
disadvantaged people all around
the world with a foreign aid budget,
now in excess of £14billion.
Philanthropy is generally a force
for good but not when you are
giving away someone else’s money
without their permission. I’m not so
sure that most British taxpayers
are happy to see their money
thrown around like confetti,
In my 80s, I belong to a Probus
club for retired business and
professional people.
We enjoy meeting twice a month
and enjoying the camaraderie and
company. We support each other in
times of need.
Watching Prime Minister’s
Questions on Wednesday
contrasted with our meetings,
which are far removed from the
serious business of government.
The trivial and childish behaviour
of our elected representatives
was more in keeping with
children’s playtime in school
than running the country.
Peter Hyde,
Driffield, E Yorks
Ministers could not
care less about us
In this fair-minded
country there
is a serious problem
among ministers and
their staff concerning a
lack of care.
They are either too
self-indulgent or don’t care at all
about major issues being brought
to light by the Daily Express, such
as the battle to get justice for war
veterans (“War veteran goes on
hunger strike”, October 31).
We constantly hear that the
Prime Minister and others are too
busy with Brexit but that’s just an
excuse. Countries like Norway and
Denmark seem to solve their issues
and to the benefit of their country.
Our politicians need an inquiry or
three before anything can be done
and even then it’s usually a political
decision rather than a right one.
Roy Ashurst,
Cambridge
Parents make good call on
ditching phones in school
Having read your report on
parents wanting to ban mobile
phones from school classrooms, it
is a subject I wholeheartedly
agree with (“Ban phones in
class, say parents”, October 31).
I found it very distracting
during the Budget on Monday,
seeing large numbers of MPs
using their phones and iPads
while the Chancellor was
giving his address.
Surely this should be
banned so the MPs can
listen to what
he’s saying?
Were those
MPs using
their mobile
Should Mourinho have been let off over swear charge?
Yes
27
I’M glad that
justice appears
to have been
served and us football
fans can get on with
what we enjoy doing
most: watching football
(“Lippy Jose off hook”,
November 1).
The soap opera side of
the game has become
sensationalist and
tiresome and this
latest case involving
Manchester United boss
Jose Mourinho is yet
another dull saga.
The man swore at a
TV camera in his native
tongue after a week of
speculation over his job.
Jose was blowing off
steam after a win and
showing that beneath
his steely veneer he is
actually human.
Simon Wild,
Salford
No
It was very
disappointing
to read that
Manchester United’s
legal department has
successfully managed to
wriggle the Portuguese
off the hook.
Football is now a
global game and even
though the United
boss didn’t swear in
English he is bound to
have offended someone
who understands the
Portuguese language.
What kind of example
is the man setting to
thousands of children
across the world?
It’s almost as if they
don’t matter to him.
If he had anything
about him he’d admit
guilt and take his
punishment.
Kenny Graham,
Liverpool
phones for personal use or official
business?
I feel they should be banned from
the House. What’s wrong with using
a pen and paper if they need to
make notes?
Tony Leader,
Gosport, Hants
Merkel’s cushy number in
United States of Europe
Does anyone really think that
after a lifetime of being in the
political arena Angela Merkel will
call it a day in 2021 (“Germany’s
Merkel vows to quit in 2021 after
poll disasters”, October 30)?
I have no doubt that she will be
given an unelected post in the EU,
more than likely the first President
of the United States of Europe (if
Tony Blair does not get there first).
Germany will then finally fully
rule Europe, something they have
wanted since 1938.
Judy Goodwin,
Altofts, W Yorks
Dementia families need as
much help as they can get
I am incensed by the financial
unfairness that sufferers and their
families have to go through in this
country (“UK ‘sleepwalking’ into a
care crisis, warns top charity”,
October 29).
Dementia is a cruel illness but it
is not treated fairly when it comes
to funding for these patients.
I’m looking to the Green Paper
which, after repeated delays, is
finally due later this year to address
this situation and hopefully more
funds for social care will be
forthcoming. Bring it on.
Mary Dilley,
Norwich
Boris isn’t the right guy
to stick on your bonfire
I WOULD have thought that
burning an effigy of Boris Johnson
qualified as a hate crime (Strike a
light! 36ft Boris effigy to go up in
flames”, November 1).
If it’s not, can someone please
start on the Labour front bench
instead.
Martyn Redmore,
Huntingdon, Cambs
Remember animals during
November 5 celebrations
PLEASE remember that for cats
and dogs, Bonfire Night might seem
more like The War Of The Worlds.
Noisy fireworks displays are often
frightening to animals, who don’t
realise that the explosions are
meant to be entertainment.
When startled, dogs can panic
and try to flee. They may jump over
fences and some have even been
known to jump through plate glass
windows.
Many cats, dogs and other
animals are taken to animal
shelters with bloody paws and torn
skin from breaking through wooden
fences. Lucky animals are reunited
with their families but others are
never found.
To avoid such upset, make sure
that you stay inside with your
companion animals.
Close windows and curtains to
help muffle the noise of the
fireworks and turn on the TV or a
radio to help drown out the sound.
Finally, please make sure that
your animal companion is wearing a
collar or harness with an up-to-date
identification tag, just in case they
do go missing.
Don’t forget about wild animals,
too and before lighting any fires,
please check and safely move any
you find.

problems normally occur, what to
expect and how to tackle them?
ADVICE from the cat charity
A
International Cat Care
(icatcare.org) says they can be
considered mature at seven to 10
years, senior at 11 to 14 years and
elderly at 15 years plus.
Problems of mental decline
occur most frequently in the
latter group and it is estimated
that more than half of these cats
will be suffering to some degree.
Feline cognitive dysfunction
(feline dementia) is similar to
Alzheimer’s disease in people.
Cats with mental decline often
suffer other problems too so
pacing around at night, meowing
constantly and appearing to be
lost. Litter tray accidents may
occur at this stage.
Sadly there is no effective
treatment and there will be a slow
decline. Bedding the cat in a
warm separate room at night with
litter, food and water is important,
as everyone needs sleep.
Pheromone diffusers may help
with anxiety. Also ensure
interaction with toys to help keep
the brain active.
a thorough veterinary
examination is recommended.
Dealing with these will improve
the cat’s wellbeing and help slow
the onset of mental decline.
Symptoms associated with
cognitive dysfunction are
behavioural and can be subtle in
the early stages. Some cats
become very clingy and follow the
owner around the house.
Others become withdrawn.
Some lose their sleep cycle,

OVIES have taught
us plenty about
aristocratic history
but until now, no
film-maker has
bothered to show
us what unfolded on St Peter’s
Field, Manchester, two centuries
ago. Salford-born director Mike
Leigh aims to put that right with
his beautifully shot, powerfully
performed and rightly furious
drama about this neglected
turning point in British history.
On August 16, 1819, 100,000
working-class Lancastrians
gathered peacefully on what
would now be called a
pro-democracy demonstration.
By today’s standards, their
demands seem modest. They
simply wanted to earn enough
money to eat and sought a vote
in general elections, a right then
reserved for the class of people
who put them to work in the
county’s dark satanic mills.
The authorities’ response was
to call in the cavalry. A combined
attack by the military and the
officers of Manchester and
Salford Yeomanry left 15 dead
and hundreds seriously injured.
The press ironically dubbed it
Peterloo after the glorious battle
of Waterloo. But the authorities
in London took that as a badge
of honour. To them, the seeds of
dangerous dissent had been
righteously crushed.
But while they had won the
battle, they would lose the war.
Peterloo became a rallying point
for working-class protest and
a pivotal moment in the march
towards universal suffrage.
On paper this seems like an
unusual project for Leigh, who is
best known for small-scale,
actor-centric dramas such as
Secrets & Lies and Abigail’s
Party. And there are moments in
this very wordy drama when you
wonder how this story might
have been told by a more
action-focused film-maker such
as Bloody Sunday director Paul
Greengrass.
But the power of Leigh’s film
lies in the way it contextualises
the massacre. The fascinating
Massacre
REBELS WITH A CAUSE:
Mike Leigh’s historical
drama Peterloo stars Rory
Kinnear and Maxine Peake
build-up shows us how Britain
reached this moment and what
motivated key figures on both
sides. In Lancashire, we see
simmering resentment grip the
mill workers.
Activists voice their grievances
in raucous political meetings on
the moors and in dingy meeting
rooms.
No one character dominates
but Maxine Peake delivers some
memorable lines as mill worker
Nellie and Neil Bell shines as
Sam Bamford, a pragmatic
reformer who has high hopes for
an upcoming rally.
To appeal to the better
instincts of the Prince Regent
(Tim McInnerny), Bamford
wants pompous middle-class
reformer Henry Hunt (Rory
Kinnear) to come from London
to be the rally’s star speaker.
Sadly, the bloated Prince’s
instincts are all about
self-preservation. He fears the
“rabble” will overturn the class
system, as happened in
revolutionary France.
It is a view shared by the mill
owners of Lancashire, the
land-owning magistrates of
Manchester and the corrupt
politicians in London.
When the workers gather with
the families for the rally, we
already know precisely what is at
stake.
And when the cavalry charges,
excitement quickly descends
into horror and confusion. Some
of the soldiers seem to be
settling scores, others seem
horrified by their orders.
Leigh is painting on the
broadest of canvases with this
ambitious and furious film. It
seems the 75-year-old is just
getting started.
FEATHERS FLY: Nicholas Farrell
and Clara Read in The Wild Duck
James Ekdal (Edward Hogg). He
lives with his wife Gina (Lyndsey
Marshal), young daughter
Hedwig (Clara Read, alternating
with Grace Doherty) and
James’s father Francis (Nicholas
Farrell). But beneath the forced
domestic gaiety they are living
hand-to-mouth.
James is a neurotic dreamer
whose over-bright demeanour
hides seething resentment. Gina
handles the family finances and
Hedwig keeps a DIY forest in the
attic complete with rabbits and
a wild duck, rescued after being
wounded by Francis.
During a 15-year absence,
sanctimonious Gregory seems to
have undergone some kind of
conversion into an archaeologist
of truth.
As he excavates the secrets of
the past, the family begins to
unravel. This is a house the
closets of which contain more
skeletons than clothes.
Gregory’s brutal father is the
missing link between Gina,

THE WILD DUCK ★★★★★
Almeida Theatre. Until 1 December.
Tickets: 020 7359 4404
BACK in the 1970s I was lucky
enough to see Swedish director
Ingmar Bergman’s stage
production of The Wild Duck
starring Max von Sydow. So it
was with some trepidation that
I approached Robert Icke’s new
adaptation of Henrik Ibsen’s
rarely performed play.
When Gregory Woods (Kevin
Harvey), the prodigal son of
wealthy industrialist Charles
Woods (Nicholas Day), enters
clutching a microphone and
launches into a Chorus-like
explanation of the events we are
about to witness, my heart sinks.
He throws in questions about
truth as well as uncomfortable
facts about Ibsen’s illicit love life.
So far, so meta-theatre.
But as the narrative takes
hold, it is clear that we are being
lured into a domestic drama of
magnificent complexity.
It is set largely in the house
and photographic studio of

in Manchester’s killing field
Juliet, Naked HHH
(Cert 15, 98mins)
Nick Hornby took us into the
mind of the obsessive fan with
his Nineties novels Fever Pitch
and High Fidelity and this
romcom is based on his 2009
novel but set in the present day
when the internet has given
superfandom an unhealthy
boost. But it has also given the
objects of superfans’ affection
a chance to bite back.
Chris O’Dowd plays Duncan,
a television studies teacher from
the fictional Kent seaside town
of Sandcliff who runs a fansite
about a briefly famous Nineties
rock star called Tucker Crowe.
Crowe (Ethan Hawke)
recorded a single album called
Juliet before disappearing
midway through a gig.
To the annoyance of his
put-upon girlfriend of 15 years,
Annie (Rose Byrne), Duncan
spends long nights discussing
Crowe’s lyrics on his site’s
message board. Then Duncan
receives a preview CD of a demo
version of Tucker’s album. When
Annie tells him she thinks it’s
rubbish, Duncan flounces off to
spend the night chatting online
with his middle-aged acolytes.
In revenge, Annie posts a
scathing review on his website.
And it gets one very positive
response, from Crowe himself,
who completely agrees that his
demo was rubbish.
The pair start corresponding
online and shortly after Duncan
and Annie split up, Crowe travels
from America to Sandcliff.
It’s a bit far-fetched but
Hawke brings a lived-in charm
to the ageing rocker and once
you get past Byrne’s wandering
English accent, you find yourself
rooting for this odd couple.

questions whether it is better to
live a contented life based on lies
rather than risk exposing truths
that might prove catastrophic.
The cast is superb, particularly
Farrell’s Ekdal, hiding his bottles
of booze like a guilty child, and
his story of the rescue of the
wounded duck is mesmerising.
Writer/director Icke delivers a
contemporary adaptation that is
neither anachronistic nor
self-consciously modern. And
when the attic is finally revealed
in a stunning coup‑de‑théâtre, it
is the prelude to a tragedy that is
as shocking as it is inevitable.
Nothing could equal Bergman’s
traditional production. But this
can stand alongside it with its

Alan Bennett’s
play‑within‑a-play about an
imagined meeting between poet
WH Auden (Matthew Kelly) and
composer Benjamin Britten
(David Yelland) in the twilight of
their careers is an absolute
stunner.
It opens set in a cluttered
backstage area where actors
rehearse for a slightly
pretentious play about the
encounter between these two
gifted gay men who meet to
discuss a
possible
collaboration
on an opera,
Death In
Venice. On the
DAZZLING:
Matthew
Kelly as
WH Auden
surface the men are polar
opposites. Auden’s personal
hygiene, or lack thereof,
competes with Britten’s
fastidiousness for attention
along with their different
approaches to their crafts.
And while Britten is buttoned
up, Auden is so sexually
­liberated that it makes for a
shamelessly filthy play.
As the stage manager
(Veronica Roberts) tries to keep
control of her wayward charges,
Bennett subtly exposes the
problems of collaborative
creativity and the loneliness of
the long-distance artist.
Under the assured hand of
director Philip Franks, a
terrific cast headed by
Kelly and Yelland on
cracking form do
justice to Bennett’s
very funny, deeply
moving play. But it is
so explicit, you
should leave the
kids at home.

MUSIC my six best ALBUMS
BRIAN McFADDEN
BRIAN McFADDEN, 38, was in boy
band Westlife until 2004. Their hits
include Flying Without Wings and
Queen Of My Heart, and he had solo
success with single Real To Me and
album Irish Son. He plays a series of
gigs at the Boisdale Canary Wharf,
London on November 6-9 and his new
album Otis is out in January.
MICHAEL JACKSON:
Bad
(Sony)
This was the first time
I was addicted to music
and I would run home
from school to put the
tape in the machine.
I remember dancing to
Dirty Diana and showing
off the turns, wearing my
dad’s golf glove on my left hand.
NIRVANA: Nevermind
(Polydor)
This was when I got into my
rebellious stage. I grew my hair long
and started not showering. It’s what
got me into wanting to be a rock star
and to play guitar.
One of the worst days of my life
was when I was due to see them in
Dublin and I heard that Kurt Cobain
had died. I cried for two days.
ALANIS MORISSETTE: Jagged
Little Pill
(Rhino)
Something about her melodies
caught me. Her guitar-based pop/
folk/rock sound was new and her
lyrics were sensational. They told
a story almost like a country album.
It’s one of the best produced
albums.
THE BEACH BOYS: Greatest Hits

JOHNNY CASH:

I love Johnny’s early stuff

It’s so simple but you can hear the
hurt and passion in his voice –
everything he has gone through in
life. Haunting and moving.
WESTLIFE: Westlife

Our first album. The release of this,

Flying Without Wings is my
favourite Westlife song. It separated
us from other groups in the charts.

Nine Perfect
Strangers HHH
by Liane Moriarty
Michael Joseph, £18.99
L
iane Moriarty’s
sixth adult novel Big
Little Lies aired last
year as a glossy,
gripping HBO series
starring Nicole Kidman
and Reese Witherspoon, and
explored escalating tensions
between school-gate parents.
Here she returns with a novel set
in another subculture ripe for
satire: the wellness retreat.
Nine motley guests
have assembled for a
10-day stay at remote
“boutique health and
wellness resort”
Tranquillum House.
It will change their
lives, albeit not in the
way they were expecting
when they paid their
extortionate fee.
Among their number is
Frances Welty, once a
bestselling romance
author, whose
professional and private
lives are now in crisis.
She is nursing a bruised
ego after her latest
“airport trash” novel was
rejected, and a broken
heart after falling for an
internet romance scam.
Among her fellow
guests are Ben and Jessica,
20-something lottery winners
whose new-found wealth has put
their relationship under painful
strain. Ben is a car fanatic who
was happier before he gave up
his job as a mechanic, while
insecure Jessica has had so
much distorting cosmetic
surgery Ben can barely see the
woman he fell in love with.

Tranquillum House with their
daughter Zoe as an escape of
sorts from the third anniversary
of their son Zach’s shock suicide.
Also present are mum-of-four
Carmel, former Aussie Rules
professional Tony, and handsome
hotshot lawyer Lars.
However, as the guests
half-heartedly embark upon a
programme of inadequate meals,
fasts, blood tests, dawn
yoga classes, meditations
and mysterious
mandatory juices, we
discover that there is
more to Tranquillum
House than meets the
eye. It is run by Masha,
once a Russian corporate
high-flyer who suffered a
heart attack and a
near-death out-of-body
experience that
transformed her into
a wellness zealot.
And Masha has just
made some bold,
controversial changes
to the programme,
convinced that her new
regime will benefit her
guinea pig guests.
The fact that her plans
are highly illegal is a
minor detail. Needless to say,
they are a recipe for disaster.
It is a clever conceit on
Moriarty’s part to bring nine
strangers together in a scenario
that will push them to their
limits. And their mobile phones
and cars are confiscated so they
are all effectively trapped.
Part of the fun is seeing which
unlikely alliances are formed
although, at the point where the
guests are under the greatest

pressure, they pull together and
offer mutual support.
While we would all be grateful
to experience this scenario in
real life, in a novel, it feels like
a missed opportunity to develop
a more high-stakes plot.
And when you have nine key
characters – 10 if you include the
formidable Masha (and the
guests of Tranquillum House
underestimate her at their peril)
– it is a challenge to make all of
them three-dimensional.
But the best-drawn characters
such as Frances and Napoleon
are endowed with charm,
charisma and humour.
Moriarty has an entertainingly
keen eye for the absurdities of
modern life – from the fakery of
the Instagram generation to the
invisibility of menopausal women
and the aggressive monomania
of the hyper-healthy.
She is also as adept at writing
laugh-out-loud scenes as tugging
on the reader’s heartstrings. As a
result you’ll plough through Nine
Perfect Strangers like a warm
knife through butter. CH
A Spark Of Light HHH
by Jodi Picoult
Hodder & Stoughton, £16.99
Everyone who enters the
Centre For Women’s
Reproductive Health in
Mississippi, whether staff
member or patient, is greeted by
a group of demonstrators.
As far as these people are
concerned, abortion is murder
and they will make as much
noise about it as they can.
A Spark Of Light opens at 5pm
on the day when a lone gunman
has entered the centre and taken
the people inside hostage. As
well as the group of terrified
staff, patients and visitors inside,
there is at least one dead body.
Outside, hostage negotiator
Hugh McElroy is prepared to
break rules and risk everything
to get to the gunman. His

been taken away in an
ambulance. For Hugh, this is so
much more than a shift at work.
This is an unusually structured
novel. The author begins the
story during the height of the
siege and then works backwards,
hour by hour. Then the epilogue
jumps forward to just after the
story began. But working
backwards diminishes the
urgency of the plot.
There are multiple characters
with various reasons for visiting
the clinic and at times their
voices can become confused.
While debate rages among the
characters as they tackle the
subject of abortion, the author
puts across every point of view
fairly. But the arguments are
overshadowed by the tension of
the hostage situation.
Picoult has once again picked
a subject that will spark debate
among readers. Her writing and
her characterisation are as
excellent as ever but the novel is
challenging in both subject
matter and structure and often
difficult to follow. AC
One Enchanted
Evening HHHH
by Anton du Beke
Zaffre, £18.99
In 1936 the Grand Ballroom of
the Buckingham Hotel is the
most magnificent ballroom in
London. The Buckingham
welcomes guests from around
the world, from royalty and film
stars to the wealthiest
businessmen.
No luxury is spared, nothing is
too much trouble and everything
is kept running smoothly by the
hotel’s loyal and hardworking
staff. Raymond de Guise heads
up the troupe of ballroom
dancers. Handsome and
captivating, he turns the head of
every woman he leads on to the
dancefloor.
But Raymond has a secret that
could destroy his world and, as
tension mounts in Europe and
the world becomes increasingly
unsettled, it becomes
harder for him to hide his
past.
New chambermaid
Nancy Nettleton recently
moved to the capital from
her rural Lancashire
home and she is
overwhelmed by the hotel
and especially by the
dancers. She secretly
watches them practise
and dreams of a better
and grander life for
herself.
But Raymond is not the
only person with
something to hide.
Beyond the ballroom’s
glittering facade and the
glamorous sequined
gowns, many guests
and staff are hiding
secrets such as illicit
relationships or illegitimate
children.
The author also deals with
difficult issues such as drugs,
corruption and espionage, all
adding depth to the story.
Although the romance in One
Enchanted Evening is slightly
contrived, this sweeping,
engrossing story offers
glamorous, high-society
entertainment and promises
to delight the reader with
details of aristocratic luxury as
much as the grubby violence of
bar-room brawls and the threat
of war. AC

Singer and activist Helen
Reddy’s lyrics “I am woman, hear
me roar” are the inspiration for
this smart and provocative
collection of 30 short stories from
Irish author Cecelia Ahern.
The often surreal tales are told
from the viewpoint of oppressed
or neglected women and written
with engaging wit and verve.
The lead character of The
Woman Who Was Kept On A
Shelf is literally put on a shelf
constructed by her possessive
boyfriend Ronald.
In the process of worshipping
her, he robs her of her
independence and identity
before inevitably ignoring her.
The Woman gives up
everything to keep him happy
and to raise their children only to
be taken for granted… until the
dénouement.
The Woman Who Slowly
Disappeared is another
metaphor made real. Have you
ever felt that no one takes any
notice of you? This woman is so
overlooked that her body
actually begins to dissolve. A
professor saves her, observing
that as women age they are
written out of television roles or
reduced to “envious witches”.
In The Woman Who Returned
& Exchanged Her Husband, a
wife decides 30 years with Paddy
is long enough and she must
“return him to the shop”.
There was nothing
wrong with him, they had
simply fallen out of love
and she’d become
irritated by his habits.
But will Andrew, 10 years
younger than her, be an
upgrade or a
disappointment?
These rich, challenging
and often comic stories
paint vivid pictures of
the humiliations and
pleasures of modern
womanhood.
So it’s hardly surprising
Nicole Kidman is already
working with Ahern on
a TV adaptation.
Every story involves
a different female lead,
from the woman who was
a featherbrain to the
woman who unravelled.
But the final tale involves
a series of women – a judge,
a schoolteacher, a perfect
mother – who in the privacy of
their own lives make time to
clench their fists and give
vent to their frustrations in a
mighty holler. The line after “I
am woman, hear me roar” is “in
numbers too big to ignore”.
Ahern’s Roar is far too good
to ignore. GB

EMINDING us once

a galloping Gangnam

Series two of PORTILLO’S
HIDDEN HISTORY OF BRITAIN
(Channel 5, 9pm), where each week
he visits an abandoned building
with a fascinating past, begins at
the Cambridge Military Hospital in
Aldershot, Hampshire.
It’s a story which, if you’re
squeamish, you’ll no doubt be
inclined to approach a little warily

grant you, doesn’t augur well)
but what happened at this place

groundbreaking that I’d urge you to
take a deep breath – or, perhaps
more apt, brace yourself with a
medicinal brandy or two – and tune
in to this episode regardless.
Unless, that is, you have a
particularly soft spot for pigs. I’ll
explain about that in a moment.
Opened in the summer of 1879,
the now-derelict Cambridge
Military Hospital was where, during
the First World War, a pioneering
military medic called Harold Gillies
effectively invented modern-day
plastic surgery, operating on
wounded soldiers who’d suffered
the most terrible facial
disfigurements.
The extent of the damage done to
these men can be seen in some
truly harrowing photographs, the
monochrome graininess of these
century-old images doing little to
soften their impact.
Yet Gillies believed he could help
repair the worst of their facial
injuries and, in doing so, give them
back both their lives and their
identities.
To find out more about the
pioneering techniques involved,
Michael speaks to a modern-day
military surgeon, Colonel Alan Kay.
This, just so you’re warned, is one
of the bits of the programme where

the veteran journalist joins the

they wheel on a pig carcass for
illustrative purposes, Colonel Kay
picking up his scalpel and giving us
a thoroughly informative but, it has
to be said, rather grisly
demonstration of Gillies’ methods.
(Another carcass, in an earlier
demonstration, has been
subjected to a hail of bullets,
leaving us in no doubt as to
the extent of the damage that
would have needed repairing).
As so often in this series,
Michael is clearly fascinated
by what he’s learnt.

me has astonished me,”

had no idea any of this
stuff happened.”

This crime drama was arguably the film of last year
and contains stunning performances from Frances
McDormand, Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson.
Mildred Hayes is a battleaxe from Missouri who cannot
come to terms with the murder of her teenage daughter.
She pressures the police into continuing the
investigation but her unwavering pursuit of justice brings
her into conflict with chief Bill Willoughby and racist,
violent, alcoholic officer Jason Dixon.
Events quickly escalate but eventually allies appear
from the unlikeliest of places.

elp To Buy: it’s not just for
millennials – or at least not for the
moment. So often we hear how
first-time buyers are benefiting from
the Government’s 20 per cent
interest-free equity loan scheme
but until 2021 it’s eligible for all ages on
new-build homes under £400,000, or £600,000
in London.
This week Chancellor Philip Hammond
confirmed Help To Buy will be with us until
2023, extending it by two years, but new
restrictions will mean lower regional price
caps everywhere except the East of England
and London.
And from April 2021 it will only be
available to first time buyers, so if you want
to take advantage to move up the homeownership ladder, you need to save your
deposit fast.
However the extension announcement
has provoked a mixed reaction. Paula
Higgins, chief executive of the HomeOwners
Alliance, says: “Help to Buy has helped
plenty of people to get onto the housing
ladder, people who would otherwise not
have had the chance to. However, it has also
helped a lot of housebuilders to make a tidy
profit. We’ve seen executive’s pay shoot up
while the quality of new build homes
deteriorates.”
Kevin Roberts, director of Legal &
General Mortgage Club, is more positive,
saying: “Not only do housebuilders now
have more certainty for longer-term
planning, and building the thousands of new
homes our country so desperately needs,
but it also gives potential buyers who are
saving for a deposit the peace of mind that
they too can benefit from the scheme over
the coming years.”
It certainly made all the difference for one
couple looking to move into a bigger family
home, second-steppers Greg and Faye
Glagow.
Greg and Faye were fast growing out of
their two-bedroom flat after the arrival of

their son Ethan, now two, but they wouldn’t
have been able to afford the mortgage for
their new four-bedroom house at Barratt
Homes’ Bishop Park in Henfield, West
Sussex, without Help To Buy.
The scheme meant they could access
more affordable interest rates typically
associated with having a larger deposit.
“We had bought our flat with a shared
equity scheme over 10 years ago with a five
per cent deposit,” says Greg. “Our property
did well in this time and we were able to
increase our ownership over the years as
well as benefit from a lift in house prices.
“Then, like many young families with a
young child, we decided that we wanted a
garden and another couple of bedrooms and
so we looked at the Help To Buy scheme
which we found available at Bishop Park.
“Help To Buy seemed ideal and has meant
that we have really been able to move into
our perfect family home, rather than taking
a smaller jump now and another in a few
years.”
Faye returned to work as a teacher after
Ethan’s birth but Greg became a stay-athome dad, so keeping the mortgage
repayments at an affordable level was
crucial.
Greg explains: “Of course [Help To Buy
means] there is an equity loan but we don’t
see it as any different to borrowing from the
bank and it’s also interest-free for five years.
“The loan has enabled us to make great
monthly savings on our mortgage which,
given that we are raising a young family, is
very welcome. We can either pay this back in
five years or whenever we sell the property.”
Bishop Park is near Henfield, West
Sussex, close to the south coast and
Brighton but also the South Downs. It has a
good range of shops, cafes, restaurants and
pubs and is near Hassocks railway station
for trains to London Victoria.
Three, four and five-bedroom family
homes are for sale from £389,995. With Help
To Buy, these can be bought with a deposit
of just under £19,500 (0844 273 4584;
barratthomes.co.uk).
Help To Buy is available from many
new-build developers but will not be
extended after March 2023, according to
this week’s Budget documents. For more

Bill Badger is so keen to see the
frisky hare that the three pals turn
and walk in the direction from
which Rupert has come. “I don’t
think we need go very far,” says the
little bear. “I’ve heard my daddy say
that hares run round in circles, so it
may turn up at any time.” But,
though they wait, nothing happens,
and the weather seems to get
colder. Algy has fallen behind, and
suddenly the others hear him call.
“I wonder what he wants,” says Bill.
Then suddenly they turn about
“D’you think he’s seen the hare?”

Irresponsible spending will
jeopardise your financial security. Be as
resourceful as possible when it comes to
household expenses. Prepare meals instead
of going to restaurants or host movie nights
rather than going to the cinema.
ALAN’S TIP OF THE DAY: Prepare soil by working in well-rotted compost and plant fruit
trees, soft fruit bushes and woody ornamental shrubs and roses. Stake trees to hold them
secure while roots establish. Trees growing on dwarfing rootstocks will need a stake for life.

Brexit’s delay
hits factories
BRITAIN’S factories suffered their
worst month since just after the EU
referendum in 2016 as trade war
tensions and Brexit uncertainty begin
to bite.
New orders and employment fell
for the first time in 27 months as
further evidence emerged that the
export boost from a weaker pound
which powered manufacturing last
year is running out of steam.
Weak demand in the car industry
applied some of the brake as new EU
emissions tests created a supply
backlog. But even when this unwinds,
economists talked down prospects
for a bounceback in the short term
for manufacturing, which generates
10 per cent of UK output.
October’s IHS Markit/CIPS purchasing managers’ index fell to 51.1
from 53.6 the previous month – a
reading above 50 means growth –
with companies seeing less new work
from overseas and home demand.
Jobs increased at small and
medium-sized firms, but fell for a
third straight month at large
SHARES ARE WINNER AS BT RINGS CHANGES
By David Shand
manufacturers. IHS Markit director
Rob Dobson said demand was hit by
“a combination of Brexit uncertainties, rising global trade tensions and
especially weak demand for autos”.
CIPS director Duncan Brock
added: “Alarm bells were ringing in
the sector. To see inflows of new
orders decline will send shivers down
the spine of business.”
Pantheon Macroeconomics chief
UK economist Samuel Tombs added:
“Manufacturers are at the sharp end
of the slowdown in global trade and
the increasing reluctance of European
customers to source components for
Britain, given the risk that supply
chains might fail in the event of a
no-deal Brexit.
“The silver lining is that the pressure on the Government to make all
of the compromises required to
obtain a Withdrawal Agreement and
to opt for a soft Brexit will only grow
as the pain from Brexit spills over
from corporates to consumers.”
Investors want their cake
SHAREHOLDERS have backed a rescue
fundraising for the owner of Patisserie Valerie as
its chairman admitted the cake shop and cafe
group had been “three hours from bankruptcy”.
Luke Johnson defended the £15.7million deal,
despite criticism for only offering discounted
shares to institutional shareholders. One
accused the firm of “putting a gun to our heads”.
Johnson put up £20million of his own money to
keep the firm afloat after a near £40million black
hole was found in its accounts. The fundraising
will be used to repay half his loan.
The serial entrepreneur said: “Investigating
what happened and dealing with the inquiries
from multiple regulators and authorities will take
time. But I and my fellow directors are prepared

Springboks just
can’t shake off
Eddie factor
EDDIE JONES’ halo
may have slipped
in England but
South Africa remain
wary of the man who
masterminded the
humiliation of the
Springboks at the 2015
World Cup.
Japan’s victory in
Brighton was the
biggest shock of that
– or any other World
Cup – and helped pave
the way for Jones to
land the England job.
And it serves as a
reminder to Springbok
coach Rassie Erasmus
that whatever
England’s record this
year and the extent of
their injury problems,
his side should not be
taken lightly.
“He’s a smart coach.
He’s beaten the
Springboks with Japan,
so I shouldn’t sit here
and comment on
anything that he’s
doing,” said Erasmus.
“Eddie knows a lot
about South Africa. He
helped us win the
World Cup in 2007. He
knows our players and
playing style. If he’s
doing something, he’ll
have a good reason.”
Springboks No 8
Warren Whiteley, who
will have Duane
By Neil Squires
Vermeulen and Siya
Kolisi for company in a
formidable back row,
recalls the Japan
defeat vividly.
“As a South African,
as a rugby supporter
and as a fan, it is
something you will
remember,” he said.
“But I am not going to
sit in my room and
think of the Japan loss
as a motivation for this
weekend. Collectively it
is about this group
moving forward.
“We are a new group
on a Northern
Hemisphere tour and
we want to be better
than we were in the
Rugby Championship.
We want some
consistency.”
Ivan van Zyl wins his
fourth cap at
scrum-half with Faf de
Klerk unavailable while
Damian Willemse
starts for the first time
at full-back for Willie le
Roux, another not to
be released by the
Premiership clubs.
“When we accepted
the Test match we
knew what the rules
were so you can’t get
annoyed,” said
Erasmus.
Farrell’s a
spiritual
leader
in our side

SQUIRES
REPORTS
OWEN Farrell’s switch to
stand-off to face South
Africa tomorrow offers a
tantalising glimpse into
Eddie Jones’s potential
World Cup end game.
Since the Australian took
over three years ago, Farrell’s
midfield link with George Ford
has been a mainstay of England.
Farrell has started just two
Tests in that period in the
position he fills at Saracens.
Now, against the Springboks
at
Twickenham,
he
will
effectively take sole control of
the backline with Ford relegated
to the bench.
Jones’s
faith
in
Ford
has wavered of late with
Danny Cipriani being handed
the No 10 shirt in Cape Town in
the summer.
Cipriani has since been thrown
to the four winds, a victim
it seems of personality as
much as performance, but Ford

has been unable to convince
Jones at Leicester that he is
back to his best.
If Farrell takes the game by
the scruff of the neck against
the Springboks – a big if, given
the many question marks
hanging over England’s pack –
a new template for Japan 2019
may be laid down.
“Owen’s a good decisionmaker and he has a very good
tactical kicking game. He’s bit
of a spiritual leader in our side
so being close to the action
will help in that regard,”
said Jones from training in
Portugal.
“He’s from good stock and
he’s an aggressive competitor.
We need that against South
Africa, definitely. He does all the
training that everyone else then
does another 45 minutes of
goal-kicking. I think he handles
responsibility well.” Farrell’s

side
has
been
growing
exponentially under Jones to
the point where he is now
co-captain alongside Dylan
Hartley. His move to his
preferred position of No 10,
revealed in yesterday’s Express,
will only add to his clout.
Farrell has made the twin
playmaker system work with
his close friend Ford but an axis
with Ben Te’o offers a different,
more
direct,
dynamic
approach.
Just how match fit the
Worcester centre is after playing
a total of 28 minutes all season
following thigh surgery is
questionable.
“I’m confident. I back myself
that I can get out there and
play,” said Te’o. “I feel good. It
takes a bit of time to get the
body going and get it resilient.
“I’ve been doing lots of
training and have had a few
hiccups with the rehab which is
why I’ve been slow to get back.
But I feel 100 per cent now.” It
is a gamble by Jones but Henry
Slade, who will play outside
Te’o, approves.
“I think it gives us a really
good balance for us in midfield
whereas in the summer when
we were on tour I was probably
the bloke doing the main
carrying
off
first
phase
and that’s not really my game,”
said Slade.
“I enjoyed carrying but
obviously I’m not quite as
big as those other lads and not
as effective. We’ve got some big
lads in the midfield to do that
now. That’s Benny’s strength.
My game is more about being

England’s injury crisis
FROM BACK PAGE
senior players around them – the ones
we have got left – have got to try to
help them.”
Newcastle’s Mark Wilson, who plays
most of his club rugby at No6, has been
handed the unenviable task of filling Billy
Vunipola’s boots at No8 as he starts a
Test for just the second time against
South Africa, who will be almost 4lbs per
man heavier. However, Wilson is up for
the challenge and is relishing the chance
to show what he can do.
“You know exactly what the South
African team is going to bring – a lot of
physicality. But we’ve got different
strengths and different qualities and it’ll
be an interesting match-up,” said Wilson.
“I started my career as a No8 at
Newcastle and I’ve played quite a lot of
games there, though I’ve predominantly
been at No6. I am really excited for the
opportunity.”
MANU TUILAGI’S fears that he
may never wear an England shirt
again were finally banished
yesterday when he was selected
for the first time in two-and-a-half
years.
Tuilagi, below, who will be
deployed off the bench against
South Africa, has been plagued by
a succession of injuries but has
finally shaken off the curse.
“We’re all human beings. We
have our feelings. You can be the
strongest person but you always
have your doubts,” he said.
“It is nice to be back here with
the boys. It’s what I want to be
doing – training with the best
players in England. You learn
from them.
“I’m feeling
better and
better every
time I get
another 80
for Leicester,
which is
natural. The
only way you
can get
match fitness
is by playing
week in, week
out. All the hard
work you do is for
this – the highest
achievement in your field.”
Tuilagi, 27, has played just 43
matches for club and country
over the past five seasons and is
still operating at some way short
of full capacity.
But even an 80 per cent he is
quite some specimen. He has
been bench-pressing 130kgs in
the gym in Portugal and
squatting 170kgs. He offers a
physical threat like no other in
the England backline.
“South Africa is always a
physical game, you have to match
them, otherwise it will be a long
day,” he said.
“With England you have to get
up to speed pretty quickly but the
older you get the more you
understand how the game works.
I guess that helps,” he said.
“It’s not much different from
what you do at your club. The
plays are all the same but with
different names.”
Sevens above…Luke out to shine
LUKE MORGAN plans to turn a
few heads after being handed his
first Wales cap after a mere six
games as a full-time professional
in the 15-a-side game.
The meteoric rise of the
26-year-old Ospreys wing will hit
a new high after he was named
by Warren Gatland to face
Scotland tomorrow.
Wales’ top finisher in the world
sevens series with 131 tries in
202 matches, Morgan intends to
make the most of an opportunity
gifted to him by an injury to
Hallam Amos and the
unavailability of Josh Adams.
“I’ve never played at
Principality Stadium before
and it will be the pinnacle of my
career to run out there. I need to
make sure I take my chance – my
plan is to try to turn a few heads,”
said Morgan. “Since the sevens
By Rob Cole
World Cup in May, things have
progressed very, very quickly. It
is my first full season in 15-a-side
rugby and, luckily for me, things
have gone through the roof.”
Scarlets flyer Steff Evans had
to be content with a seat on the
bench, but Gatland is excited by
what Morgan can bring as the
countdown to next year’s World
Cup in Japan begins in earnest.
“He’s taken his chance at the
Ospreys and we are looking for a
bit more depth. Not having Josh
Adams available this weekend
means he gets an opportunity,”
said Gatland.
“There’s a bit of competition
between him and Steff Evans
but there is a little bit of X-factor
about him.” Jarrod Evans, the
Cardiff Blues outside half, is the
only other uncapped player in the
23, with clubmate Gareth
Anscombe being given the No 10
jersey from the start. That will
put him up against Scotland
rookie Adam Hastings in what
Gatland sees as a key battle.
“Adam Hastings has had
some international experience
at No10 but there will be some
pressure on him to play in
Cardiff. We have to make sure we
put as much pressure on him as
we possibly can,” said Gatland.
“There is no doubt he is a
quality player with a pretty good
pedigree. I’m sure he has had
plenty of advice about handling
the pressure. But if a player is
playing at the next level up in
terms of physicality and
intensity, we need to bring
that to make it difficult for him.
It is going to be a tough, physical
encounter.” Edinburgh flanker
Jamie Ritchie is another
Scotland novice – he will win his
third cap tomorrow – but like
Hastings, he knows he needs to
impress to make the squad for
next year’s World Cup.
“It’s not about being
comfortable, it’s about
imposing yourself on the game
and that’s what I’ll be looking
to do,” he said. “It’s a huge
opportunity for me. Gregor’s
backed me to start this game
and I’m looking to grab the
chance with both hands.”

Delivering a message he
knows could prove unpopular
with Ashley’s fiercest critics,
skipper Lascelles wants an end
to the “bad energy” which has
engulfed Newcastle’s season.
The Magpies have back-to

Watford and Bournemouth and
in a plea to the Toon Army, the
defender wants the club to
present a united front.
Newcastle are second from
bottom in the Premier League
and have not won a league match
this season.

Lascelles did not mince his words.
“It doesn’t help,” he said. “We are

MATTHEW LEWIS
Diaz double dose
does for Fulham
IT MAY have been City’s
second string on show
at the Etihad last night
but it proved more than
enough to tie Fulham in
knots and secure a
quarter-final place.
A virtuoso performance from
teenage starlet Phil Foden and
two goals for Brahim Diaz
perhaps carried the doubleedged sword of alerting
European vultures to their
talents.
Both have been the subject
of attempts to lure them away,
Foden attracting admiring
glances from everywhere and
the Spanish Under-21 forward
courted by Real Madrid and
apparently disaffected with
life in the reserves.
But the pair looked anything
but for the holders last night,
Diaz scoring his first two senior
goals for the club – to book a
trip to either Leicester or
Southampton – and Foden
looking once again as if he has
the world at his feet here in
Manchester.
This was as comfortable a
night for City as Pep Guardiola
could have wished for, with
Fulham posing little threat
and his back-up squad shining
brightly.
Indeed, the only negative on
an evening they moved a step
closer to what they hope will
be a fourth league cup final in
six years was the sight of Kevin
De Bruyne limping off after a
bang to his left knee.
If Fulham had needed any
further indication of the size
of the task facing them it came

with the sight of a home bench
heaving ominously with talent.
Guardiola made no fewer
than 10 changes from the side
which beat Tottenham at
Wembley – John Stones the
only player to keep his place –
but named over £255million
worth
of
signings
as
substitutes.
Wholesale change certainly
did not appear to weaken City
noticeably in the opening
period with Fulham pressed
CONCERN:
De Bruyne in
pain late in
the game
back from the start. The attacks
came thick and fast as City
traced mesmerising patterns
around the white shirts and
the tandem threats of Leroy
Sane and Foden on the left
and De Bruyne and Diaz on
the right caused havoc.
Foden stung Sergio Rico’s
hands with a hammered shot
on the angle from the left after
14 minutes.
Four minutes later City were
in front after a Diaz shot from
the other side took a deflection
off Aleksandar Mitrovic.
It was a slightly fortunate
break but no less than
a brilliant first-half display
deserved.
Danilo might have added a
second after a powerful driving
run on the right saw him crash
a shot against the outside of a
post. Sane failed to round off a
superb exchange between
De Bruyne and Foden, lifting
his shot over just after the half
hour mark.
Just before half-time Foden
should have buried a header
after timing a run brilliantly to
get on the end of a whipped
low cross from De Bruyne
only to glance his effort wide.
Gabriel Jesus went close,
wriggling
through
two
defenders only to crash his
shot just wide.
It was one-way traffic and
Fulham were unable to stop it
continuing after the break.
Sane was a handful for
Timothy Fosu-Mensah on the
left flank all night and warmed
to his task further as the night
progressed.
Fulham will have been
grateful his finishing was not
much improved in the second
period though, a second
chance going begging when he
was clean through on the left.
But a second was not long in
coming
and,
rather
like
London buses, it fell to Diaz to
put City clear.
Jesus deserved the bulk of
the credit setting it up with a
mazy run to the left byline and
a right-footed far post shot
which rebounded to the feet of
Diaz.
The Spaniard took one
touch
before
gratefully
smashing it high into the
Fulham goal.

FOOTBALL: LEICESTER IN MOURNING
By Dave Armitage
VOICE quivering, Claude
Puel yesterday opened
his heart on the haunting
moment he heard the
club owner’s helicopter
had crashed.
Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha
was killed along with four
others in Saturday’s tragedy,
an hour after Leicester’s 1-1
draw with West Ham.
“I was in my office in the
stadium with my family and
friends and all my staff,” said
Leicester
manager
Puel.
“Mike [Stowell], the goalkeeper
coach, came in and gave me the
news. We were devastated. We
could not understand what had
happened. It was not possible
to take in the news.”
Puel was close to tears as he
recounted the chilling moment
he realised something had gone
horribly wrong.

night at the crash site not 300
yards away; now they had come
to pay their respects and sign
the book of condolence set up
by the club.
In the other direction, fans
milled into a marquee to do the
same, and just across the way
visitors added to the sea of
flowers and scarves at the
shrine outside the King Power
turnstiles by the club shop.
Puel, whose side play at
Cardiff tomorrow, said: “I didn’t
see him after the game. I saw
him before. He was enjoying it,
he was happy, smiling. We
discussed a lot.
“It was a pleasure. I obviously
could not have imagined the
things that came after.”
Puel recalled bumping into
goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel,
who had raced out to the scene
on Saturday night and stayed
at the stadium until around
1.30 on Sunday morning in a
state of shock.
“I was with the staff,” said
Puel. “We remained for a lot of
time together, without it being
possible to share words. It was
silence. Then we saw Kasper. I

“When you play
football, normally your
focus and concentration
is just on the pitch and
what you have to do,”
said Puel. “I hope we
can have this feeling
during the game.
“Before and after, we
cannot forget. I hope we
can find a good balance
between conviction and
emotion in this game.
“If we remain just on
emotion, it will be

Leicester’s players
want to play in honour
of the owner and then
fly 6,000 miles to attend
his funeral in Thailand.
The squad agreed
that tomorrow’s match
should go ahead despite
it being on the same day
as the funeral starts.
Puel revealed the club
had given the green
light to return to action
after consulting players
and members of the
billionaire’s family.
“I want to give the
opportunity for players
and staff to go to the
funeral. We will see the
logistics,” said Puel.
“All the players want
to go and support
Vichai’s family. His wife,
son Top, all the family.
“Playing football has
not been at the front of

weekend and all matches
after we will play to

“We have a
responsibility to his

words from Kasper
Schmeichel that we
have this responsibility
to continue this way
and to perform. We will
play now for him and for
his family.”
While not all of the
squad are expected to
make the journey to
Thailand, those close to
the chairman and his
family, including Jamie

seem certain to go.
