But the Prime Minister was blasted for offering poor families “hot air”, not tangible funds to warm their homes. Labour said many families need their homes upgraded with insulation and double glazing to reduce costs. Ministers are preparing to ban the installation of new gas boilers from 2035 but the grants will not cover the full cost of installing a heat pump – around £10,000 on average. And not all will be able to access the grant, worth £450million in taxpayer cash in total, which would be enough for around 90,000 heat pump grants.

While eight in 10 are adamant a dollop of tomato sauce on the side of the plate to dip food in to is best, two in 10 prefer to smother their meal. More than half felt squirting ketchup all over a dish was bad manners and an insult to the chef. The survey Are you a dipper or a squirter? Britain’s great ketchup conundrum of 1,500 adults by frozen food giant Birds Eye found chips were the most popular food to go with a condiment, with nuggets second and nachos third. But dipping food into someone else’s sauce was seen as a faux pax by half while ketchup or mayo with a roast was a no-no for almost 50%. And four in 10 fussy eaters frowned on mixing two sauces together on a plate. Ketchup was crowned king of the condiments, followed by mayonnaise barbecue and chilli sauce. Annalisa Fanali, marketing manager for Chicken Dippers at Birds Eye, said: “Our research shows just how important a dip or a sauce is to Brits, with many saying that a meal is simply not complete without a condiment. “We weren’t surprised to see that ketchup still reigns supreme when it comes to our favourite thing to dip or dunk our food into.” Top 10: 1 Ketchup; 2 Mayonnaise; 3 BBQ sauce; 4 Chilli sauce; 5 Salsa; 6 Brown sauce; 7 Salad cream; 8 Guacamole; 9 Soy sauce; 10 Mustard. ruki.sayid@mirror.co.uk @RukiSayid

The politician’s heartbroken wife Julia made an emotional pilgrimage to the scene of the attack where he held a constituency surgery last week. At Westminster yesterday, the Prime Minister said: “Sir David was taken from us in a contemptible act of violence striking at the core of what it is to be a Member of this House. “Violating the sanctity of the church in which he was killed and the constituency surgery that is so essential to our representative democracy. “But we will not allow the manner of Sir David’s death in any way to detract from his accomplishments as a politician or as a human being. “Sir David was a patriot who believed passionately in this country, in its people and in its future. “He was also one of the nicest, kindest and most gentle individuals ever to grace these benches.” Sir David’s widow shed tears as she read messages on floral tributes at Belfairs Methodist Church in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, where he was allegedly murdered by 25-year-old suspect Ali Harbi Ali on Friday, Julia, who was joined by two of the couple’s five children, Florence and Katie, was comforted by Rev Clifford Newman during their 15-minute visit. Meanwhile, MPs from all sides wore black as they paid tribute to the Tory, 69, who was stabbed 17 times. They attended a remembrance service at St Margaret’s, Westminster, yesterday where mourners sang Abide With Me and Cwm Rhondda. Proceedings in Parliament began with a prayer for the devout Catholic before the Commons, Parliamentary staff and journalists observed a minute’s silence in the chamber. Sir David’s usual place on the Tory benches was left vacant in his honour, despite the House being packed. Praising a “seasoned campaigner of verve and grit”, the Prime Minister said the “passing of 72 hours has done little to numb the shock and sadness we all felt when we heard of the tragic and senseless death”. Labour leader Keir Starmer told MPs: “Each tribute paints its own picture of a committed public servant of kindness, and a man whose decency touched everybody he met. “These tributes are trAGic Jo Cox was killed in 2016 kindest and most gentle individuals ever to grace these benches PM’s emotional tribute to slain MP Sir David Amess soLEmN MPs leave an empty seat in memory of Sir David during minute’s silence a powerful testimony to the respect, the affection and, yes, the love that David was held in across politics, and across different communities.” Labour’s Kim Leadbeater stood in front of a shield commemorating her sister MP Jo Cox, who was murdered in 2016, as she offered her condolences to the Tory’s relatives. She said: “It’s been a traumatic few days for many people – none more so than David’s family and friends, and it’s they who remain at the forefront of my mind this afternoon. “But, sadly, I know from my own all-too-similar experience that in reality there is nothing anyone can say to make things all right for them.” Conservative MP James Duddridge, who represents Rochford and Southend East, described Sir David as “a man of faith and convictions”. He told how on a trip to the Vatican his colleague accidentally had a boiled sweet blessed by the Pope. Mr Duddridge said: “The Pope took the sweet thinking it was a revered object to be blessed and David had to put it in his pocket – a holy sweet.” Sir David’s death has triggered renewed fears over MPs’ security, with calls for them to receive protection when they hold weekly constituency surgeries. Home Secretary Priti Patel told Parliament a review of policing for politicians was “concluding in the next few days”. Commons Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle added: “The circumstances of Sir David’s death are despicable and raise the most we won’t let terrorists win by creating walls between us and those who vote us in dominic raab on fears over constituency surgeries fundamental issues about how members of this House are able to perform their vital democratic responsibilities safely and securely. “I give the House my undertaking I will do everything in my power to ensure these issues are prAisE Boris Johnson sorrow Mr Johnson, Labour leader Keir Starmer and the SNP’s Ian Blackford treated with urgency and with the sense of priority that they deserve.” Many MPs have warned against allowing the killing to raise barriers between them and constituents. Justice Secretary Dominic Raab told Sky News: “We don’t let the terrorists win by creating wedges or walls between us and those who vote us in.” Downing Street said the murder “cannot get in the way of democracy” after suggestions MPs could end faceto-face surgeries with constituents. Politicians are set to be offered more private guards for these events. Asked if there would be plainclothes police at the surgeries, Mr Raab said: “It depends on the individual. “I think we’re more likely to look at things like private security guards –

Labour’s Chris Bryant said a man has been arrested over a threat on his life in the wake of Sir David’s murder. He received the warning after a Parliamentary trip to Qatar. Mr Bryant said: “I got back on Saturday and the first message in my inbox was this death threat, threat MP Chris Bryant called police pretty clear, so I notified the police and they have taken action.” South Wales Police said a man, 76, of Bridgend, was held on suspicion of malicious communications. Former MP Lord Nigel Jones, who was severely injured in a 2000 sword attack at his Cheltenham office in which his assistant Andrew Pennington was killed, said it was vital MPs were able to meet the public face to face. In a tribute read by fellow Lib Dem Baroness Brinton in the Lords, the peer said the death of his “mate” Sir David was “the most unimaginable shock”. He added: “David, Pictures: PHIL HARRIS like my friend Andy Pennington and I, was just trying to do the job to the best of his ability. “Our democracy relies on an open channel between those in power and the people who we represent. “It’s vital to be able to meet people face to face so they can feel we are here and working for them.” Meanwhile, the Archbishop of Canterbury said Sir David had a “fairness of spirit and charity of heart” that endeared him to those across the political spectrum. At a service in his memory, the Most Rev Justin Welby said the “light lit by public service” provided by MPs like the Southend West politician must never be put out. He heartache Sir David’s girls Florence & Katie added there is “a unanimous conviction amongst all who knew him” that Sir David had been “of the best”. The archbishop said he will be recalled alongside other politicians who have been killed in recent years. He added: “His name will be remembered with Airey Neave, Robert Bradford, Anthony Berry, Ian Gow and Jo Cox, those MPs murdered since 1945, and others, like Andrew Pennington, who have died in the course of public service. “Public service in politics is a sacrifice that should be honoured and respected even when differences of opinion run very deep.” ben.glaze@mirror.co.uk @benglaze SuSpect’S hate preacher oBSeSSioN: paGeS 6&7 By BeN GlaZe Deputy Political Editor SOUTHEND-ON-SEA will become a city in tribute to Sir David Amess, Boris Johnson announced last night. In a move cheered across the Commons, the Prime Minister told MPs the Queen had agreed to grant the Essex resort city status following the long-running campaign by the Southend West backbencher. Reflecting on Sir David’s 24 years representing the town, Mr Johnson added: “He never once witnessed any achievement by any resident of Southend that could not, somehow, be cited in his bid to secure city status for that distinguished town. “Highlights of that bulging folder included a world record for most triangles being played at once; a group of stilt-walkers travelling non-stop from the Essex coast to Downing Street; and a caMpaiGN Sir David Amess visiting foreign dignitary allegedly flouting protocol by saying he liked Southend more than Cleethorpes.” Labour leader Keir Starmer told the Commons: “It is a fitting tribute to Sir David’s hard work. It really is fitting because David delivered for the causes he championed.” The PM’s spokesman added: “This was an exceptional circumstance. It is a very rare honour which Sir David campaigned passionately for.” Southend’s award of city status will not affect the competition among towns to be upgraded to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next year.

Publishers must either take them down immediately or be forced to drop them by law. The killing of MP David Amess is prompting national soul-searching and increasing calls to improve the tone of debate. It’s indefensible web operators continue to give a soapbox to dangerous bigot Choudary, once jailed for five-and-a-half years for encouraging support of Islamic State. These rants should not be there to hook the impressionable, troubled and hardened extremists. Choudary’s claim he is within the law is disputed by others.

Walk-in vaccine clinics proposed for secondary school pupils in England should boost numbers. But the Government has proved woefully slow, recklessly threatening lessons for hundreds of thousands of children.

Anjem Choudary mocks his country of birth, slams young British Muslims for trying to please their parents by becoming doctors and engineers and insists that on Judgment Day it is the jihadists whom God will love the most. The hate preacher’s vile sermons were removed by YouTube after he was jailed in 2016 for inviting support for Islamic State. But within just minutes we were able to find nearly 40 hours of bile online. The clips were uploaded in May on to the San Francisco-based Internet Archive site by a user called sword4Allah. Choudary, 54, is the founder of the outlawed al-Muhajiroun group and is considered one of Britain’s most dangerous radicalisers. He spews hatred of the West in impassioned tones which is clearly directed at young, disaffected Muslims living in Britain. In one chilling speech, he calls on followers to “reject all of the MPs” and slams Muslims who go to their constituency MP for advice. He says viewers should reject the legal and political systems of the kuffar – a derogatory Arabic term for non-Muslims – and fight to “destabilise Britain”. In another video Choudary says: “They say they want a British Islam... an Islam devoid of sharia, an Islam devoid of jihad, an islam devoid of struggle and sacrifice – they want you to be humiliated. “No matter how much the unbelievers hate it, our objective is to dominate the whole world… Britain by the sharia. To fly our flag over the White House, over the Kremlin and over Downing Street.” And he rants: “Muslims these days, they go to Parliament to ask for help, but they don’t go to Allah. “If you go to ordinary Muslims today they’ll say ‘we want to see what the law of the land says’, because they made it into an idol that they worship. They want to know what the halal and the haram [what is permissible or unlawful] is from their local MP. “We now have a distinction between the Muslims and the kuffar. It’s now become a battle.

He said: “I would like to drag Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook and Jack Dorsey of Twitter to the House – so they can look us all in the eye and account for their actions, or inactions.” Mr Francois also revealed that David “had become concerned about what he called the toxic environment in which MPs, particularly female MPs, were having to operate”. country we’re living in. “The other dangerous thing is what I call the push and pull factor.

Someone could read between the lines and think, ’this is what I should be doing’.” In another of his videos recorded the day before the anniversary of the 7/7 London Tube bombings, Choudary mocks British values.

Former teachers said he was a “good kid” with supportive parents and “tried very hard”. One said: “They were such a lovely family.

A second former teacher had fond memories of Ali and his dad Harbi Ali Kullane. The teacher said: “He was a pretty little boy, a really nice little lad.

Hopefully there’s no one from the DSS listening to this.” Prof Awan added: “Anything that incites violence or terrorism should be illegal. “One of the challenges is that different websites come under different jurisdictions, and the American guidance is predominantly about free speech. “So content often stays up even though it should technically be removed.” Ali Harbi Ali, 25, is being held under the Terrorism Act after MP Sir David Amess, 69, was His narrative is hateful and he hooks in young people with the idea of victimhood prof imran awan online extremism expert on cleric stabbed to death at a church in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, on Friday.

Licence conditions,which included a ban on public speaking and talking to the media, expired in July. In a statement released by the Society of Muslim Lawyers, Choudary said: “Although I have delivered many talks and lectures over the years, there is currently no significant material to be found anywhere online due to its removal by social media companies.” Google was approached for comment. matt.roper@mirror.co.uk @mattroperbr

A High Court judge will next month be asked to decide if an original suspect was responsible for the murder. PC Fletcher, 25, was killed by a bullet fired from the Libyan embassy in London during a protest against Libya’s then leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. A source said: “We understand that at the time of the shooting one of those said to be involved was a double agent working for the British along with Libya.” In her last moments, PC Fletcher’s colleague John Murray promised he would find her killers and has been seeking justice since the killing. He has launched a civil claim for damages against Saleh Ibrahim Mabrouk, a former aide to Colonel Gaddafi. While living in Reading, Berks, Mabrouk was arrested by British police in 2015 in connection with the murder. The case was dropped in 2017, with prosecutors saying key evidence was not available to be used in court. Mr Murray said this week: “We’re going to produce new evidence in court which would suggest criminal charges are appropriate.” The case is listed for a three-day trial when a judge will decide if Mabrouk was part of a plot to fire at protesters. Court papers from Mr Murray’s lawyers say: “The colleAgue John Murray pays his respects to Yvonne defendant is jointly liable with the... group who fired the shots.” Mabrouk, who has returned to Libya, is not expected to be at the trial. He has said he is innocent and called the civil action a “fraudulent claim which will be a waste of court time”. He added he was not there when the PC was killed. Scotland Yard said it still aims to bring those responsible to justice. tom.pettifor@mirror.co.uk @tpettifor Staycays beat foreign hols for kids YOUNGSTERS believe a staycation is just as much fun as a trip abroad as it will not be too hot and there is no language barrier.

Confirming his death yesterday, his family said the army general had been fully vaccinated and receiving treatment for blood cancer at Walter Reed National Medical Center in Maryland. He had also been suffering from Parkinson’s disease. The statement added: “We have lost a remarkable and loving husband, father, grandfather and a great American.” born in April 1937 in Harlem, New york, to Jamaican immigrants, Powell was brought up in the tough South bronx. During his teenage years he became an army cadet, setting him on a path with the military. As a distinguished soldier his career took him from combat duty in Vietnam racing up the ranks all the way to general. He would go on to become the first black national security adviser and the youngest and first black chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. His national popularity soared in the aftermath of the Gulf War, and for a time in the mid-90s, he was considered a leading contender to become the first black US President. However, his reputation was damaged when he pushed faulty intelligence to advocate for the Iraq War, which he would later call a “blot” on his record. Paying tribute to Powell, Tony blair said: “Colin was a towering figure in American military and political leadership over many years. “Someone of immense capability and integrity, a hugely likeable and warm personality and a great companion, with a lovely and selfdeprecating sense of humour.” Powell is survived by his wife, Alma, whom he married in 1962, as well as three children. 60m 50m 40m 49,422,753 30m 20m 10m 0m close friend Carrie with her activist chum nimco Must do better..

Downing Street insisted no rules were broken when they spent the festive period with a friend at No10 despite a near lockdown in London. The PM’s official spokesman added: “It is entirely accurate to say they followed coronavirus rules at all times.” Millions of brits were banned from spending Christmas with friends and family as Covid cases soared. The couple’s loose interpretation of official guidance was certain to disappoint many who stuck to the spirit, and the letter, of the rules. No10 sources confirmed that political campaigner Nimco Ali had joined Mr Johnson and his then-fiancee over Christmas in their Downing Street flat. Ministers urged to rapidly allow The PM’s official spokesman indicated Ms Ali, believed to be a godmother for 17-month-old son Wilfred, was in their “childcare bubble”. He added: “The rules are very clear you could continue to use a childcare bubble on Christmas itself, including in a Tier 4 area.” The Government guidance said: “you can only use a childcare bubble for childcare. you cannot use a childcare bubble to mix with another household for other reasons.” The couple were also said to have been in a “support bubble” at the same time with Carrie’s mother, Josephine McAfee, in line with the rules. but the rules stated they could not spend Christmas Day with both women at once.

Figures yesterday showed a further 49,156 people in the UK have tested positive for Covid, with 45 more deaths. Numbers with the virus are as high as the January peak. Professor Andrew Hayward, of the SAGE advisory group, said: “I think it’s concerning we’ve got very high rates of infection and higher rates of hospitalisation and mortality than many of our European counterparts.” He added that waning immunity is “probably” part of the reason why infections are so high here, and there is “some evidence” protection against infection is beginning to wear off. The speed of the jab rollout means Brits are more likely than those in other countries to have had their second dose at least five months ago.

Argentinian striker Sala, 28, and pilot David Ibbotson, 59, perished when their plane from Nantes in France to Cardiff plunged into the English Channel in January 2019. David Henderson, 67, of Hotham, East yorks, admitted at Cardiff crown court to attempting to discharge a passenger without valid permission or authorisation. He goes on trial today on a separate charge of endangering the safety of an aircraft, which he has previously denied. Henderson allegedly arranged the flight carrying Sala and Mr Ibbotson. Sala’s body was recovered a month later. Mr Ibbotson’s was not found. At a hearing in October 2020, the court heard Mr Ibbotson’s licence to fly an aircraft commercially had expired in November 2018. The Air Accidents Investigations Branch reported at the start of the year that the plane had been leaking carbon monoxide during the flight and a final manoeuvre by Mr Ibbotson to pull up the plane had caused it to break up mid-air. A jury inquest into Sala’s death was delayed until after Mr Henderson’s trial and is scheduled for February 14, 2022.

Nigeria is the second country to be highlighted in our NextGen International project. Temperatures in the north can reach the mid 40s and by 2060, scientists predict a 1.1C to 2.5C rise.

Our investigation revealed the schooling of about 250 children is affected by the floods every year in our small town in Yobe State. Youngsters under 12 are impacted the most, with many unable to attend school as flood water cuts off the main roads and families are too afraid to leave their homes. earlier this year the damage from a storm was so severe it destroyed more than 50 buildings in a major city of Yobe State and 11 residents had to be rescued from the debris. One sadly died and the others sustained serious injuries. Residents described it as frightening but also explained why the storms are getting worse. “This storm has a lot to do with the destruction of our forests, which contributes to climate change,” one said. “If you travel to some parts of Nigeria where you have thick forests with abundant trees, they don’t experience this kind of thunderstorm in their wet seasons.” Another added: “It takes us up to two weeks or more waiting for the floods to subside. During that period, schoolteachers Warning Hadiza research Mustapha do not come. The children attending school from the affected areas could not come to school until the water had retreated. “The chief of our community and the elders have repeatedly teamed up to complain to the public authorities in search of solutions, but to no avail.” Some of the residents we spoke to said they have advised the Yobe State government and humanitarian organisations to look into the problem urgently. They want the government to build a big bridge and construct standard water channels to direct the flood water and bring huge relief to the region. Residents also want more trees to be planted to create a natural defence barrier. “Trees should be planted and a law should be enacted against the felling of trees, to curtail the problem of deforestation,” one said. In 2020, flooding affected 2.7 million people across West and Central Africa, compared to 1.1 million in 2019. Flooding often kills animals and destroys crops, threatening the 70% of Nigeria’s population who rely on agriculture for income. It also increases the incidences of diseases such as cholera and diarrhoea.

Many of the children in the classroom put their heads down on their desks and closed their eyes.

Hours went by and the rain finally slowed down, we were allowed to leave and go home – to what was left of it.

My stomach churned because I did not know what to expect when I would get home. The building we lived in was still standing, but inside the havoc wreaked by the flood was shocking. My mother breathed a sigh of relief on seeing me. The floodwater had destroyed my storybooks and toys. All of this, though, was not as painful as the news that my beautiful baby sister had drowned. My mother told me she was in the kitchen – not part of the main building – and was sleeping in the room which had been struck worst by the rain. My mother did not get to her in time due to the storm. I was heartbroken. Amina was dainty and playful, I could not believe that she was gone. My family was distraught. I did not know how or where we slept that day. I wished I had wings so I could fly away to a calm and happy place. Waking up the next day amid the gloom, I was still gripped by grief.

The project is also working in the Solomon Islands, Nicaragua, Nepal, Brazil and Mongolia. pray I do not witness a disaster like that again but as global warming continues, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicts that the frequency and intensity of rainfall will only increase across Africa. Humans do not have ultimate power over nature, but I believe we can do things to reduce the negative impacts it will have on us. In my community, people have also contributed to the damage and deaths by building houses on floodplains. I want the government to remove buildings on floodplains, build proper drainage and take these small steps to protect our future. ■You ■ can help by donating to Save the Children’s emergency fund: www.savethechildren.org. uk/mirrorclimatecrisis

Talk of the Toon OvATiON Dr Tom Prichard is lauded at St James’ Park 10,000 fans chant ‘Hero’ as A&E doc helps to save Newcastle fan By JEREMY ARMSTRONG A DOCTOR said having 10,000 football fans chant “hero” at him was one of the best times of his life after he saved a man who had a cardiac arrest during a Premier League game. Newcastle United fan Tom Prichard, 34, rushed from his seat to help administer a defibrillator and perform CPR to restart the unnamed supporter’s heart. The drama was witnessed by millions of viewers on TV during Newcastle’s 2-3 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur at St James’ Park on Sunday. The stricken man is believed to be a dad of two who was attending the game with a 92-year-old friend. Tom, who works as an emergency consultant at North Tees Hospital in Hartlepool, Co Durham, paid tribute to the St John Ambulance volunteers and the other medics on the scene. They included his friend, cancer specialist Dr Matt Anderson, retired nurse Ruth McDonald, the United club doctor Joe Cosgrove, a cardiologist and another A&E doctor. United’s first team doctor Paul Catterson also ran on the pitch with a defibrillator to help. Tom, a season ticket holder at Newcastle United for 14 years, said: “It all happened very quickly. “I saw there was a commotion in the stands near me, and when I got there they were doing CPR on him as he lay across the seats. “St John Ambulance had the pads on him and I gave a shock and helped with the CPR to get a pulse back. “It was a real team effort. St John Ambulance did brilliantly as it is not easy doing that with 50,000 It was the second greatest thing after getting married Dr Tom PricharD on the applause for him fans looking on. This fan was very lucky, he had such great help around him.” Tom, who also works for rugby league side Newcastle Thunder and part-time for Middlesbrough Academy, was cheered by 10,000 fans in the Gallowgate End of the ground as he returned to his seat. He said: “It was the second greatest thing to happen to me after getting married. “It was a great feeling.” Tom, of Newcastle, was unaware the game had been halted by referee Andre Marriner for 24 minutes until he received his standing ovation. “I went into overdrive and focussed on what I needed to do,” he said. “I was completely unaware of what was happening on the pitch behind me.” The Mirror is campaigning to get a defibrillator in every public building in the UK. Tom added: “That is a fantastic idea, I support that campaign. I don’t want to be a hero, this is not about the glitz and glamour. “I just want to get the message out on how to save lives. Early CPR and the defibrillator were vital, as they were with Christian Eriksen.” Denmark midfielder Eriksen was saved after a cardiac arrest in a Euro 2020 game in June. Matt, who works at Newcastle’s Freeman Hospital, helped a fan who had a cardiac arrest outside Old Trafford after a Manchester United game two weeks ago. He used a defibrillator from a nearby restaurant to save him. A Newcastle club spokesman thanked everyone involved in saving the fan, who was described as being in a stable condition. jeremy.armstrong@mirror.co.uk @jeremyatmirror Change the law DEFIBRILLATORS SAVE LIVES HELp With pal Matt behind him COLLApSE Emergency services attend stricken man in East Stand Aid Newcastle’s doctor Paul Catterson is alerted

[ ] Tv CHEf Nigella Lawson Nigella: I used to dread meal times as a kid By MARK JEffERIES Showbiz Editor CELEbriTy chef Nigella Lawson says she hardly ate as a girl and lived in fear of meal times with her family. She called it a “miracle” that she now adores food. Nigella, 61, said she had to sit at the table until her food was gone or would be served up the remaining cold grub at the next meal. She added she had to help mum Vanessa Salmon – heiress to the J. Lyons & Co catering dynasty – cook by the age of six. Nigella, whose dad is former Chancellor Nigel Lawson, 89, told US food writer Alicia Kennedy: “i didn’t really eat as a child. i dreaded meal times... “Once i was older... could cook for myself and choose what i ate, i really loved it.” Her mum died of liver cancer in 1985 aged 48. NO CHECKOUTS The store Tesco opens supermarket without tills By GRAHAM HISCOTT Head of Business TESCO will today open its first checkout-free supermarket to shoppers. Customers using the Tesco app will be able to grab their groceries and then walk out without going to the till. A combination of cameras and weightsensors detect what shoppers have taken, then bill them after they leave. The GetGo store in High Holborn, Central London, has been cashless since opening in 2018. Kevin Tindall, managing director of Tesco Convenience, said: “We are constantly looking for ways to improve the shopping experience and our latest innovation offers a seamless checkout for customers, helping them to save a bit more time.” Time to look in mirror to end culture of hate So here we go. As the shock waves reverberate around the death of a good man, the hunt for answers continues without even a hint of self-awareness. My Mirror colleague, ros Wynne-Jones, is behind the brilliant britain Talks campaign which aims to get the country doing just that. The trouble is, so many of us still don’t talk. So many of us WhatsApp, email, Facebook or tweet, tapping away in a cess pit with a race to the bottom in terms of our discourse. The empathy has gone. The respect for peers and authority, a staple of older generations, is a thing of the darren.lewis@mirror.co.uk @MirrorDarren DARREn LEWIS past. it won’t return with screens between MPs and their constituents or police officers on the doors of surgeries. They are the ideas of a regime with a left hand over its eyes and their right hand feeling around in the dark. Complacency will eventually replace the concern to be seen to be doing something anyway after the killing of Sir David Amess and, heartbreakingly, we will be back here in a few years’ time - just as after Jo Cox in 2016, Stephen Timms in 2010 and Nigel Jones in 2000. We are all at risk from an atmosphere that threatens to consume us, never mind extremists. My jaw hit the floor when we heard that the individual held in connection with the death threat sent to MP Chris bryant is 76 years of age. i remember, as we neared the end of the last lockdown, hearing friends’ fears that things could explode after it was lifted with so many people having spent so long shouting at each other online. Don’t kid yourself that the trolls are teenagers or twenty-somethings still living at home and eating cornflakes way past lunchtime in their pyjamas. Many wear suits and ties, carry laptops and enjoy top vICTIM MP Sir David Honest and opinionated ‘‘ Empathy has gone. Respect for authority and peers is thing of past jobs with big platforms. None see any problem hammering politicians on all sides or the likes of Meghan Markle. Even the debate about finally cracking down on hate speech online is quite something when ordinary people, footballers, celebrities and other politicians have been begging for it for years now without success. Ask the likes of Diane Abbott and Dawn butler. Justice Secretary Dominic raab and MPs such as bernard Jenkin and Mark Francois are among those now urging us all to be kinder. Tell that to boris Johnson and Priti Patel, both called out by England footballer Tyrone Mings for refusing to condemn those booing our national team for taking the knee. This is the least kind government in living memory. A government that wants to hand immunity to people causing others to drown in the English Channel. A government whose ministers belted out karaoke tunes at their party conference earlier this month on the day they cut Universal Credit for millions. A government whose hostile environment campaign has seen lives lost and millions of families devastated. A government whose Prime Minister was given the chance to dial down his racially offensive rhetoric about Muslim women and black people and chose instead to double down. When MP Paula Sherriff complained in parliament in 2019 of the abuse and harassment she and other female MPs were being subjected to, Johnson suggested “the best way to ensure that every parliamentarian is properly safe and [to] dial down the current anxiety… [was] to get brexit done”. None of that justifies violence. Ever. What it underscores is our need for a period of introspection and the drawing of a line in the sand. it should never have taken the passing of a good man to spark that. Best wishes to Mary Berry who, like my neighbour last week, has revealed she had to wait three-anda-half hours for an ambulance after suffering a broken hip in her garden. Just like my neighbour, the 86-year-old baking queen really is made of stern stuff.

DM1ST mirror.co.uk TUESDAY 19.10.2021 DAILY MIRROR 19 tears Debbie McGee McGee: I wept over breast cancer shock By LaUra HarDing DEBBIE McGee has revealed she was in complete shock on finding out she had breast cancer. The TV star, 62, said: “I got into the car and just burst into tears. “I couldn’t believe what was happening to me.” Debbie had a biopsy on her 60th birthday, after irregularities were spotted on a routine mammogram. She was diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ and had an operation. The wife of late magician Paul Daniels, speaking during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, said she was determined not to worry about it returning. She said: “I am a person that always tells everybody else, so I have to do it myself, ‘Don’t worry until you’ve got something to worry about’.” sitcom Open All Hours Arkwright is s-s-slapped by censors By jeremy armstrong OPEN All Hours is the latest sitcom to be hit with a warning about racist and sexist language. The late comic legend Ronnie Barker played the stuttering shopkeeper Arkwright alongside David Jason as his downtrodden assistant Granville. All four BBC series of the popular 1970s and 1980s BBC comedy are available to stream on BritBox. Censors have warned viewers: “Contains racial humour and language of the time that may offend.” Netflix last year removed the comedies The League of Gentlemen and The Mighty Boosh. A spokesman for the BBC and ITV-owned streaming service said: “We review and refresh BritBox’s programme catalogue on an ongoing basis.” Adele: I had anxiety attack over divorce pLUm roLe Adele dresses in purple for snaps on instagram HigH note Singer teams up with canadian film-maker Xavier Dolan Pop queen reveals pain in new album Picture: BRITISH VOGUE FiLLing With a full english breakast By marK jeFFeries Showbiz Editor A vOicemAil that features on Adele’s new album will lay bare her pain as she suffered an “anxiety attack” during her divorce. The singer said one of the tracks on her upcoming record 30 contains a message about her boy Angelo, nine, while she was panicking. She said: “It’s in the song about my son, it’s at the end, in the outro. I was really frightened. “I was having an anxiety attack and I called my best friend to try to talk to her to calm me down but she didn’t bloody answer. “It shines some light on ... I’m talking about my son in the rest of the song and once I put him to bed I can stop putting on that brave face.” Adele released her first music for six years last week with single Easy on Me. She is to open up about her split from Simon Konecki, 47, in her album and hopes their son will listen to it one day and understand her pain. When asked what she hopes Angelo will take away from his track, the star, 33, said: “So often mum is mum and dad is dad, and who they are outside that role is never really discussed in childhood. So it’s more that. “And when he does get older he will understand, because life is going to hit him as well, of what I was going through.” Adele, who teamed up with film-maker Xavier Dolan for a shoot, said she would have liked someone to have written a song about her as a girl. She added: “I think every parent or child or a parent who has had to be distant, emotionally, at some point in their lives, because of a separation... I could’ve bloody done with it when younger.” During her career break, in which she endured her 2019 marriage breakdown and also lost her dad Mark in May, Adele admits she has learned how music can help her to find solace. And she hopes her new record, due out on November 19, has gone some way to “heal” her. Speaking on Australian radio station Carrie & Tommy, Adele said: “More than ever, I’ve realised how important music is as a comforter. “I decided to go all in with this one [album], not only to heal myself but to maybe pass on any knowledge or tools that I might have learnt over the last few years. Because it’s been intense.” On Friday, Adele released Easy on Me and the lyrics appear to urge forgiveness from Simon and possibly Angelo over the break-up. The song was listened to by tens of millions of fans shortly after its release on YouTube. Meanwhile, Oprah Winfrey will interview the singer as part of a two-hour CBS special. Adele One Night Only will air on November 14 and is expected to be available in the UK. It was billed as the Londoner’s “first televised wide-ranging conversation about her album, life after divorce, weight loss and raising her son”. The US show is being co-produced by her TV I was having an anxiety attack and I called my best friend but she didn’t answer adele on voicemail that features on new album pal James Corden and will also feature a concert. mark.jefferies@mirror.co.uk @mirrorjeffers

As a confirmed mender of holey socks, I lamented the scarcity of darning wool, and here’s a letter from another good Samaritan.

Pushing up the sock to the GET READY COMING SOON TO business end, I see advantages. The hole is perfectly exposed, stretched and ready for the needle. I darned a pair of blue socks in a matter of minutes. Quicker, neater – and safer: no risk of digging the needle into your knuckle. Despite being constitutionally resistant to technological change, I must now accept that the mushroom is the answer to a maiden’s prayer. Mine, too. I learned the fist method from my late mother, but I am sorry, mam, there’s no going back. My darning confidence has mushroomed.

The actress, 46, had to hang 60ft over water before her character Manpreet Sharma must battle raging rapids in action scenes she believes are the ITV soap’s most ambitious in years. “Viewers are going to be bowled over by the scale of the epic stunts. It might not be quite James Bond’s No Time to Die but I’m sure it’s a close second for the small screen,” says Rebecca. “The stunts are definitely the most daring of the year if not the decade. “Your heart can’t fail to miss a beat or two when you’re suspended with no safety harness on a Tarzan-like rope bridge with a 60ft drop below into a water-filled quarry!” During last night’s explosive episode, Manpreet was talking with love interest Vicar Charles Anderson, played by Kevin Mathurin, when the bridge broke. The thrilling stunt set the scene for a week-long guessing game as to who will next be murdered by Manpreet’s psychopath sister Meena. “It’s very liberating and it has been so fulfilling to venture outside of our comfort zones,” she says of filming for this week’s “soap super survival week”. “I was well up for the stunts and I surprised myself when I skipped on to the bridge to film our scenes. “The bridge stunt was not only a feat of imaginative prowess but also of technical excellence. “So complex was the set-up – it took three hours each time to reset it – that we as actors also felt a certain pressure to do the shot justice. “It was a good pressure though, one that made you want to bring your A-game to the field.” Rebecca hopes her antics on the soap will inspire her two sons, aged 15 and 10. “When I showed my boys photos of me doing the stunts as well as the abseil, they were quite impressed. “It takes a lot for them to be impressed but they could see these stunts were a lot of fun. “I do enjoy taking on challenges. I am a great believer that while it’s sensible to be risk averse, it’s good to push yourself.

The Dynasty star, 88, wed the 56-year-old Hollywood producer – her fifth husband – in 2002. Some raised concerns about the age gap. But Joan believes their relationship was a success because they worked together and became good friends first. She said: “It was a slow burn but that makes the best relationship. “Rather than plunge into everything filled with lust.” Joan released her book my Unapologetic Diaries last week but used a tape recorder instead of a pen. She told Radio 2: “That’s why everybody likes it. I spoke it into a tape recorder, so it’s very immediate.” exClusive By ToM bRyAnT Head of Showbiz JESY Nelson is being subjected to severe trolling over the blackfishing row, say friends. The ex-Little mix singer has been hounded after former bandmate Leigh-anne Pinnock appeared to accuse her of trying to look darker skinned in her Boyz video. a source close to the band said: “It’s all getting a bit much. “The last thing she wanted was to be embroiled in a Little mix vs Jesy feud. The Girls have been through a lot together and she truly believes everyone can co exist in the industry without PARTy Andre and leigh-Anne the war of words.” Leigh-anne’s fiance, andre Gray, appeared to refer to the row in a speech at her 30th birthday party on Saturday. He said: “If you’re going to try and disrespect my baby mother, my wife, fiancee and children, there’s gonna be a problem.” The source added: “Jesy’s team are trying to protect her from negative trolls. Comments about ‘disrespect’ only amplify things further. everyone needs to take a step back.” Jesy, 30, who has launched a solo career, has appeared in a BBC documentary about online trolls. She said comments about her appearance made her so unhappy she wanted to die. Leigh-anne, who is mixed race and had twin boys in august, defended her “character” at Saturday’s bash, telling pals: “I’m so proud of everything I’ve achieved.” Rapper Nicki minaj, who appears on Jesy’s debut single Boyz, has accused Leigh-anne and bandmates Jade Thirwall and Perrie edwards of trying to ruin Jesy’s solo career. tom.bryant@mirror.co.uk @MirrorTom Premium 10/11cm bulbs supplied for superb results.

But your health can be part of their legacy too, with certain genes making you more likely to develop conditions such as cancer. Scientists are still learning about the role hereditary gene faults play in the disease, but the information we already have can give families blighted by cancer the chance to change the course of their future. “It’s a scary thing to be told you have been born with a higher-than-average lifetime risk of cancer,” says Jo Stanford, cancer prevention officer for Ovarian Cancer Action. “But this knowledge means you are right at the front of the queue for referrals, screenings and risk reduction options. “My mum died of ovarian cancer and I felt very helpless. “Discovering I inherited a genetic fault allowed me to take back control and it will now be a different story for my children.” How can cancer be in my genes? Your genes are an instruction manual for your body so it can make proteins, the building blocks of life. All cancers develop because something has gone wrong with one or more of the genes within a cell, leading it to divide and grow uncontrollably. The vast majority of these faults occur due to factors such as your age or lifestyle. But a small proportion are hereditary. “When you have a fault, it’s like having a spelling mistake in the instructions so your body can’t do its job as well,” explains Jo. “But it’s important not to panic, as only five to 10 per cent of all cancer cases have a hereditary element.” Ovarian, breast, prostate, pancreatic and bowel are some of the types you can be more likely to get if you carry a mutation, but the lifetime risk levels vary between cancers and carriers. What are the gene faults? There are two main types that we know about so far – BRCA mutation and Lynch syndrome. All of us carry BRCA genes, otherwise known as tumour suppressors, and their job is to repair cell damage and prevent cells growing and dividing too rapidly. But some families have ‘‘ A gene fault is like having a spelling mistake in your body’s instructions In th know faults on the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes which make them less effective. It’s thought around one in every 400 to 800 people are carriers of these faulty genes, but this is significantly higher for people with certain backgrounds, such as Ashkenazi Jews. The BRCA mutation has a strong link with breast and ovarian cancer but it’s just as important for men to know if they carry it as women. This is because it also raises the risk of prostate and pancreatic cancers, while dads can pass the fault down the generations. Lynch syndrome is an umbrella term for mutations on a group of genes that should repair DNA damage when cells divide – MLH1, MSH2, MSH6 and PMS2. They are most strongly linked to bowel cancer but can also increase your risk of a number of other types, includin stomach syndrom but it co ring in o the Wor Unfor gene fau the publ droppin accordin More five per c they hav GPs are How I’m a If either mutatio a 50 per You on copy to h and this blood te

The prevalence of Lynch e is still being investigated, uld be as common as occurne in 125 people, according to ld Health Organisation. tunately, awareness of these lts is poor – only 25 per cent of ic have heard of BRCA, g to 16 per cent for Lynch, g to Ovarian Cancer Action. worryingly, it’s thought just ent of Lynch carriers know e it, while only 16 per cent of aware of the syndrome. do I know if carrier? of your parents has a BRCA n or Lynch syndrome, there is cent chance you will too. ly need to inherit one faulty ave an increased cancer risk can be confirmed by having a st. But because testing is relatively new and patchy, most of us remain unaware if these mutations are hidden in our DNA. Looking at your family history is the best indicator of whether you should consider screening. Jo says: “One blood relative with cancer is unlikely to be a red flag to make you eligible, but it depends on the type. “Generally, you need to have two or three relatives with specific cancers. “I’d recommend compiling a family tree listing any cancers and health problems on both sides. “Next, put this information into the hereditary cancer risk tool on our website ovarian.org.uk to see whether you might meet the referral criteria. “This also gives you a printout with the information your GP will need, and the NICE guidelines.” Anyone referred for testing on the NHS will be able to access a genetic counsellor before and after, who can explain the process, your personal risk factors and how to tell relatives about a diagnosis. If you’ve had bowel or womb cancer or are undergoing treatment for either, doctors should screen your tumour for signs of Lynch. Jo recommends chasing this up if they haven’t. Does being a carrier mean I’ll get cancer? No. Nothing is inevitable and having the knowledge means you can take action to reduce the risks. “Our generation are the first ones able to use this information and it is empowering to be able to do that,” explains Jo. While people with Lynch see their lifetime risk of developing bowel cancer increase from 5.5 per cent to as much as 80 per cent, knowing you have this predisposition can be the difference between life and death. You’ll be aware of symptoms of concern, be offered regular screenings to detect any changes and you’ll be able to make lifestyle changes to protect your health. Regular colonoscopies for Lynch carriers can reduce the risk of dying of bowel cancer by 72 per cent. There are also options for riskreducing surgery, such as elective mastectomies and hysterectomies, while carriers without children can access a form of embryo screening that checks for BRCA mutations and Lynch on the NHS, called PGT-M. Jo – who opted for preventative surgery when she was in her 30s – says: “These are not easy choices. It’s scary to have body parts removed, it can be lonely and it’s not the right decision for everyone. “But for those of us who have lost a loved one to cancer, the opportunity to take back the power and say ‘this stops with me’ is wonderful.” ■Find ■ out more about hereditary cancer at ovarian.org.uk dad carried lynch fault Laura Palmer-Hukins was just a few weeks pregnant with her second daughter when her dad was diagnosed with bowel cancer – the disease that had killed his own father. After surgery to remove his colon, genetic tests revealed Terry had Lynch syndrome. Shortly after Laura gave birth in August 2018, doctors said the cancer had spread to his lungs, liver, kidneys and spine. He died three days before Christmas that year, aged just 62. Desperate not to go through the same agony, Laura and her brother were tested for Lynch. In May 2019, the results showed only one sibling had inherited a particularly highrisk mutation on the MSH2 gene – Laura. Her sex meant she was at higher risk of ovarian and womb cancer, as well as bowel cancer like her dad. “My first reaction was to ask how soon I could have a hysterectomy,” says the 35 year old. “I felt like my body could betray me at any moment. “Doctors think I’m young for this procedure but I’ve had my children and I’ll do whatever it takes to see them grow up. motHerHooD Laura and Minnie “Suffering from extreme menopause is better to me than the alternative.” Knowing she carries a hereditary cancer gene means Laura tries to cherish every moment with her daughters Minnie, five, and Etta, three. She also married long-term partner David in February 2020. “Living with Lynch is a rollercoaster of emotion – every ache and pain comes with extra worry,” she explains. “There are constant hospital appointments to think about and invasive tests. “I also feel guilt that I may have passed this onto my girls, but I’m glad I have the knowledge to modify the risk.” The mum-of-two from Pocklington, East Yorks, is dedicating herself to raising funds for Lynch research and raising awareness too. She remains on the surgery waiting list and says her desire to have the op has only increased since her uncle – another Lynch carrier – died of an unrelated cancer during the Covid-19 pandemic. “I want more families to look into their own health histories and take control. “Dad knew there was bowel cancer in the family but not about the gene, so he missed a couple of screenings. Had he realised how serious it was, I think he could still be here.”

28 DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 19.10.2021 DM1ST HEALTH As the days get colder, darker and shorter with winter approaching, it’s estimated that as many as 29 per cent of adults will experience symptoms of seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Michele O’Connor explores simple but effective ways to stave off its worst effects Eat more protein: Salmon, red meat, eggs, nuts and seeds are rich in the essential amino acid tryptophan, which helps the body to produce the feel-good chemical serotonin, which is thought to drop in winter and contribute to SAD. This is especially important if you’re vegetarian or vegan. A Scandinavian study found that non-meat eaters are four times more likely to suffer SAD so it’s important to eat plenty of plant proteins, such as tofu, beans and legumes. See the light: Timed, daily exposure to bright artificial light using a light box has long been considered the gold-standard treatment for SAD. The idea is that it mimics sunlight and, when used first thing in the morning, simulates a summer dawn – jump-starting the circadian clock. Studies show 53 per cent of those Get set to beat SAD with SAD experience complete relief from their symptoms. And, if you work indoors, open curtains or blinds and sit by a window if you can, advises Fatmata Kamara, Specialist Nurse Adviser at Bupa UK. “As well as making your environment bright, you could also try bringing the outside world in with some indoor plants.” Snack attack: Snacking on the right kinds of carbohydrates can relieve some of the symptoms of SAD, according to Dr Judith Wurtman, co-author of The Serotonin Power Diet. Research suggests that around 30g of “good” carbs per day, in the form of popcorn, pretzels or wheat squares, was enough to produce the mood-enhancing serotonin you need. Don’t hunker down: We’ve all had the urge to cancel plans when it’s miserable outside but don’t talk yourself out of something that will make you feel better. Relationships are vitally important if you’re experiencing low mood. Try talk therapies: Researchers at the University of Vermont, US, suggest that talking therapies such as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) are at least as effective as light in the long term. CBT involves recognising and changing negative thoughts that feed sad moods and engaging in pleasurable activities that counteract depressed moods. The study found that, although CBT involves a bit more effort, it teaches people to reframe their thoughts about winter so they can overcome SAD year after year. Self soothe: While there’s no clear evidence yet that cold temperatures contribute towards the development of SAD, some people with the disorder say their symptoms improve when they keep warm. Take a candlelit bath, adding rose, lavender, bergamot or chamomile essential oils to lift your mood. Consider an electric blanket too – no one relishes slipping between icy sheets in the depths of winter so turn bedtime into a cosy treat. Limit your sugar intake: Contrary to popular opinion, studies have found that scoffing refined carbs and sugary foods has virtually no mood-boosting effect and leaves you feeling more fatigued afterwards. Make exercise a priority: It may be the last thing you feel like doing but it will energise you, says Dr Guy Meadows of The Sleep School, thesleepschool.org. “Elevating metabolism and increasing blood flow to the brain, it boosts endorphins.” Studies have shown those who take a one-hour walk in daylight show improvements in SAD symptoms. An hour of outside activity had equivalent benefits to 2.5 hours of light treatment indoors. However, avoid outdoor exercise when it is dark as studies suggest it may delay the release of the sleep-regulating hormone melatonin.

The presenter chats to Amy Packer about eye problems she’s suffered since childhood – and how her dad’s visit to the opticians turned into a family tragedy Chatting to Sue Perkins about her eyes is not for the faint-hearted. Within minutes she is listing off a history of injuries that would have you reaching for the remote control were you watching an episode of Casualty. “I’m an absolute idiot, such a klutz,” says the 52-year-old comedian. “I follow my instinct all the time, so I quite commonly give myself a mild concussion or skewer myself in some way. As a child I tripped and fell into the path of some scaffolding and took a steel bar to the face. “It was so traumatic and left me very short-sighted in one eye. I’m long sighted in the other and have the reach of a sparrowhawk, so it’s a confusing picture for my brain. I’m extremely thankful for spectacles.” This early visit to the eye hospital wouldn’t be the last for the presenter, who describes herself as “very accident prone”. “Not just once, but twice, I’ve had the lead of a propelling pencil fly off into my eye,” recalls Sue, who is currently starring in the Sky show Hitmen: Reloaded with her on-screen comedy partner Mel Giedroyc. “Another time, I was on the back of a motorcycle and got a load of grit in my face, which scratched my cornea. “My most impressive, though, I think, was bending down to admire a yucca plant. I don’t need to tell you where that ended up. It was excruciating. I had this searing pain as the spine delved its way into my cornea. It means I’m very familiar with the London’s Western Eye Hospital and Moorfields, so I heartily apologise and heartily thank the NHS for their endeavours.” Less dramatically, Sue believes lockdown has also taken its toll on her vision. “I’d wake up, check emails, check Twitter, check my messages, go and read, go and write at the computer, watch TV and go to bed – with a dog walk fitted in somewhere,” says the former Great British Bake Off host. “It was not necessarily all online or computer based, but it was all pretty close work and I started to notice my ability to read without glasses had evaporated. Of course, that happens naturally with age, but I expect the mE & my BODy: SUE PERKINS COMEDY STAR With pal mel in Hitmen: Reloaded relentlessness of the pressure I put on my eyes in the last 18 months probably accelerated the process.” Sue knows better than most the importance of not putting off medical or optical appointments. “My dad, Bert, was a very stoic bloke and of a generation that didn’t wish to cause a fuss. But by August 2015, when he was 79, his sight had become very bad and his balance was very bad too. After a close shave ‘‘ Even quite basic eye tests showed my dad had a tumour in his brain in the car it became clear he needed his eyes checked. He went to his local Specsavers in Penzance and a young optician did some quite basic tests. But even with those, it became clear there was a tumour in his brain. I imagine she knew immediately it wasn’t the sort that could be removed, but the way she dealt with him and referred him on without panic and with a great deal of kindness was so important. He unfortunately had a stage four glioblastoma and he went, almost immediately, to palliative care as it couldn’t be treated. “Sadly we only had six final months with him, but when I look back on that time, however god-awful it was, at least I don’t have to contend with the fact that Dad found out in a shocking way or a callous way, which would have been unbearable.” Sue has now started working with Specsavers on its State of the UK’s Eye Health Report 2021. The study, in collaboration with leading eye health experts and charities, reveals there were 4.3 million fewer eye tests in 2020 – a drop of 23 per cent on 2019, and GLASSES ACT Sue with the Bake Off team that ophthalmology referrals decreased 28 per cent. Significantly, 40 per cent of those questioned said they have delayed an eye test despite knowing they needed one. “I’ve been banging the drum for people to get their sight checked ever since my father passed away,” says Sue. “People think of eye tests as something you could skip, ‘oh yeah, I am a bit short-sighted, I’ll get around to it’, but before you know, six months have passed. “An eye test is the only non-invasive examination you can have where they can actually see what’s going on with your brain, blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, glaucoma and cataracts and it’s all vital information. “They can tell so much just by looking. I remember going for a check-up when I was in my 20s and the first thing the rather gruff optician said when he looked into my eyes was ‘oh yes, a smoker’. Very shortly after that, I gave up as I was so horrified he could see the effect it was having. “My dad’s tumour wasn’t something treatable, but those cases are few and far between. If an issue is spotted by an optician, early intervention can massively redefine how your future’s going to look. “You’d never live with painful teeth, so I don’t know why, culturally, we will wait so long to see an optician.” ■For ■ more information visit specsavers.co.uk

DM1ST mirror.co.uk TUESDAY 19.10.2021 DAILY MIRROR 31 Dr MiriaM StopparD HEALTH neWS Transplants cancelled Covid decimated the number of organ transplants carried out in the UK last year, falling by almost a third, leading to a spike in deaths. Transplants involve invasive surgery so there’s a high risk of infection and patients need a long period in hospital to recover. As NHS resources had to be diverted to cope with Covid patients, hundreds of transplant ops were delayed or cancelled. In the spring of 2020, fewer than seven transplants a day were being carried out, down from 25-30 a day in 2019. In total, 1,298 fewer transplants were done in 2020 than in 2019. This meant 487 patients died waiting for a transplant compared with 372 the year before. An international study of 22 countries revealed an average decline of 16% in the number of organ transplants. The worst affected was Japan, where there was a drop of 67%. Dose of sunshine could be key to healthier pregnancy We are all desperate for a bit of sunshine, but for mums-to-be, a blast of rays could be a real life-changer. Because women who get more sunlight in their first trimester lessen their chances of having placenta problems linked to premature birth and baby loss, researchers have found. According to a study from Edinburgh University, women who have the lowest exposure to sunlight are 10% more likely to have an early baby compared to those getting the highest levels. To investigate this interesting theory researchers analysed data on nearly 400,000 mothers and more than 500,000 babies born after 24 weeks of pregnancy. All single live births in Scotland between 2000 and 2010 were then cross-checked with postcodespecific weather records from the same period. Fascinatingly, it’s only sun exposure in the first three months of pregnancy that has any impact on premature birth risk, not rays in later months. The team is already investigating if artificial light can boost pregnancy health to benefit parents in places with limited sunlight. But we still have a lot to learn about the link between sunshine and premature birth. Prem birth – defined as babies born before 37 weeks of pregnancy – is the leading cause of death in children under five years old. And babies who ‘‘ It reminds us that sunlight has heath benefits as well as risks survive prem birth have higher rates of disability, including learning disabilities and visual and hearing problems, than those born at term. The team hopes their research can help reduce preterm births and the consequent danger to babies. Researchers from Edinburgh University have previously shown when our skin is exposed to sunshine, a chemical called nitric oxide is released. It relaxes our blood vessels so helping to lower blood pressure – Viagra relaxes blood vessels in the penis the same way. Experts agree the benefits of reducing blood pressure far outweigh the risks of developing skin cancer from sun exposure. Sunlight also contributes to vitamin D production, aiding the development of an unborn baby’s bones, teeth, kidneys, heart and nervous system. “The role of sunlight is an exciting new avenue for research into preterm birth prevention,” said Dr Sarah Stock, expert in maternal and foetal health at Edinburgh University’s Usher Institute. “This study is important because it provides further data reminding us that sunlight has health benefits as well as risks.” Researchers want to see their findings become part of advice given to families during pregnancy.

BUST ThoSe MYThS... about ADHD ‘ADHD is not a real disorder’ Try telling that to someone who has ADHD. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is a medically recognised condition. A person doesn’t have it simply because they are distracted easily or behave impulsively. Having these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean a person has ADHD – only a trained healthcare professional can diagnose it. ‘Poor parenting can lead to ADHD’ Wrong. ADHD isn’t caused by bad parenting or by anything you or a loved one has done. Simply applying more discipline, without accounting for the symptoms of ADHD, doesn’t usually help. But setting clear and consistent expectations and establishing a home environment with predictable routines can help in its management. Assisted by Hajni Domokos

DM1ST mirror.co.uk TUESDAY 19.10.2021 DAILY MIRROR 33 Let’s your do this community together corner Edited by siobhanmcnally Yesterday was World Menopause Day, but because I’m going through the menopause – I clean forgot. Many of my friends are already on HRT, and I’ve been taking it for three years now, so the palpitations, hot flushes and general feeling of doom are a thing of the past. Although they haven’t yet invented a medication that will cure the spiralling anger I feel when The Dark Lord accuses me of being hormonal – which I am – when she’s slamming doors because she’s hormonal too. It’s like a deadly war zone where even medics get shot down for offering paracetamol and a hug. I still get brain fog though and often find myself desperately searching for words. Thank goodness for Google, or this page would be half the size, missing all the geography and filled with long pauses while I try to remember what I’ve come in this metaphorical room for. I have three friends who held out longer than everyone else and refused to accept they were perimenopausal. Although I did point out that they needed to check their dark murderous rage wasn’t just a symptom of their husbands snoring at night. My 48-year-old friend Jenny was suffering anxiety and insomnia, and 55-year-old Rebecca, who had more symptoms than I even knew were possible, only threw the towel in after five years of waving a fan around, when the constant headaches drove her to the doctor. And then there is my lovely friend Lisa, 49, whose crushing depression almost wrecked her marriage. I’d been nagging them for years to get thee to a GP and ask for HRT. And I am pleased to report that all three have since been (grudgingly) put on various doses of patches and gels by their doctors – and hurrah – they all feel back to their old selves again. HRT is not for every woman, but for those who need it, it’s a…er… thing. What’s the word? Oh yes.

The meals were inedible – especially the peas in tomato sauce, which seemed to get served every day.” And after trial by food, school kids had to run the gauntlet of hideous gym knickers and communal showers.

DM1ST 34 DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 19.10.2021 DEAR COLEEN dearcoleen@mirror.co.uk your problems solved how can i helP my mate who’s a real wreck? Dear Coleen I have a mate who’s been married for over 30 years and he and his wife have two children together. People from his past have lied about him and because of this, he’s worried about losing his family. He told me he loves his wife and kids so much, if he ever lost them he’d take his own life. He’s an emotional wreck and I’m not sure he can control his actions. How can I help him to stop having these crazy thoughts? I would appreciate your advice. Coleen says I think you can help him by guiding him to get professional support and counselling. He’s obviously in a very stressful situation, but remind him that his family loves him and the worst thing would be for his kids not to have their dad around. However old they are and whatever’s happened, they love him and will always need him. I think it’s a good sign that he’s talking to you, but some things are too heavy to carry yourself – the responsibility and the guilt if anything were to happen. He can call the Samaritans at any time of the day or night on 116 123, and the mental health charity mind.org.uk also provides support and resources. His GP would also be a good port of call. You can help by listening, but also helping him to find the right professional support for his situation. Good luck. Rude friend screamed at my daughter for making a mess Dear Coleen I was in a pizza restaurant with my friend and our daughters recently. My daughter, who’s eight, and can be a bit boisterous, started being quite loud, so I asked her to use her indoor voice. She was just overexcited and ended up tipping a drink over my friend’s daughter while reaching for colouring pencils. My friend screamed at my daughter at the top of her voice and really told her off. The entire restaurant looked around to see what was going on. My daughter burst into tears and sat in silence for the rest of the meal. I told my friend that I don’t scream at my daughter and it was up to me to discipline her and she replied: “Well maybe you should – she might be better behaved!” you say “It is up to me how I discipline my child I don’t know what’s going on with her, but I find this completely unacceptable. We’ve been friends for a really long time, but I’m not sure I can get over this. My daughter is terrified of her now and doesn’t want to see her or her daughter. Can you advise? To the guy who’s in love with two women, one of whom is his wife, and can’t give up either (Dear Coleen, October 25), stop being so arrogant and selfish. Think about what you’re doing to your family. You only have yourself to blame for feeling stressed and being unable to sleep at night. I think it’s called guilt. Stevie, via email PROBLEMS? Tell Coleen Nolan about them and she’ll give you an honest answer... every weekday in the Daily Mirror email: dearcoleen@mirror.co.uk – sorry, but Coleen can’t reply personally WRiTe To: Coleen Nolan, The Daily Mirror, One Canada Square, London E14 5AP dreading in-debt hubby coming home can be OK on your own, which is a positive thing. However, maybe the real test is how you feel once he’s been at home for a few days. Also, have you had constructive conversations around the source of the problems in your marriage, namely, his finances? I think you need to agree a plan around transparency over joint finances and budgeting going forward or things will never improve. You haven’t said why he’s getting into debt – is he living beyond his means or does he Coleen says have a gambling issue or Well, I guess that’s the purpose another addiction? of a break – some cooling off He needs to be completely time to work out what you want honest about how much debt and if you miss the other person he’s in, how he’s going to get out or not. of it and what he’s been It’s made you realise that you spending his money on. Dear Coleen I’ve been married for seven years, but it’s been challenging for the past three or four of them, mainly because my husband is rubbish with money and is always covering up his debt. Luckily, we have separate personal accounts, so if he were ever to get into real trouble, my daughter and I would be OK. Things came to a head a few weeks ago after arguing nonstop, so I told him to leave as we needed a break and he went to stay with his brother. He’s due to come home in a week’s time and I’m dreading it. We’ve had some constructive conversations, but being on my own for several weeks has made me doubt whether I want to make my marriage work. What do you think? Coleen says It sounds like a massive overreaction from your friend, which makes me wonder if she’s particularly stressed about something in her life. Maybe she’s on a hair trigger the way she exploded at your daughter, making more fuss and noise than both of the kids put together! She’s lucky she didn’t get chucked out herself. If you can face it, you could always reach out, tell her you were upset by what she did and what she said to you afterwards and see what she has to say for herself. But I kind of think it’s up to her to offer an apology and an explanation. Tell her that it’s down to you to chastise your child and not her, and it’s not OK to speak to her like that again. Perhaps it comes down to very different parenting styles, which might have always been an issue for her when you’ve been together and she’s just exploded over this incident. Personally, I think it’s a no-go area, telling off someone else’s kid, unless it’s a dangerous situation and you’re shouting to get attention. Even if you think it, saying it out loud is a quick way of finishing a friendship. Sign up to my newsletter! I’m excited to let you know that I’ve launched a fab newsletter, which I hope you’ll sign up to receive once a week via email. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on love, life and relationships, as well as my pick of the week’s readers’ problems. Sign up by visiting mirror.co.uk/coleen

The pro-equality routine, including a scene depicting the moment George Floyd was pinned to the ground by a white police officer, became one of the most complained about moments in Ofcom’s history. The dancers were subjected to a vicious social media pile-on. “Within Clinton was impeached for “high crimes and misdemeanours”. Seen through the eyes of the women at the centre of events, it stars Beanie Feldstein as Monica Lewinsky, Sarah Paulson as Linda Tripp, Annaleigh Ashford as Paula Jones, and Clive Owen as Bill Clinton.

Beginning in 1998, the year of the impeachment, we see Monica POWERFUL Ashley, above, the routine minutes of over five million people watching, I became public enemy number one,” says Ashley. But why did the dance divide the nation? Ashley talks to actor David Harewood, historian David Olusoga and BGT judge Alesha Dixon, while also revealing how race and racism has impacted his own life. It all builds to a confronting and shocking interview with Jim Davidson, who posted a video slamming the routine after it aired. “Your video is proof of the racism that is alive and well,” says Ashley.

Glad that’s over... I could do with a holiday Today’s picture YES 84% Yes. When is our government going to introduce measures again?

Email your funny captions to the address below. the BIG QuestioN Every day we’ll be asking your opinion on one of Britain’s big talking points. You can have your say and vote at mirror.co.uk Lisa Nandy has confirmed Labour would back tougher restrictions to help prevent a winter surge of coronavirus after the UK recorded its highest daily jump in cases since mid-July. Would you support tougher measures to prevent a spike in cases? NO 16% No. It should be a matter of taking personal responsibility to stop the spread and help the NHS. We need to live with this virus. mac Yes. They need to bring in the Covid passports, and masks should be worn in all indoor public places. momo66 ■ THE murder of Sir David Amess, was appalling like that of Labour MP Jo Cox five years ago. Sadly MPs are always going to be targets for those with grudges and warped extremist perspectives. While it’s important their security reflects the risks they face, it would be tragic if this diminished the interaction between them and the people they represent. Those calling for a kinder political discourse are right – there can be no excuse for incitement and offensive personal abuse. However, with the challenges we face, scrutiny and criticism of our politicians remains more important than ever. Brett Grainger, Rugeley, Staffs ■ It appears the motive behind this brutal attack is to disrupt our democracy – so can we now expect telephone consultations with our MPs, just as we are seeing fewer face-to-face appointments with our GPs? Let’s hope not. We now have another 650 or possible targets and, irrespective of which party they belong to, they are chosen by us. Perhaps we need tighter vetting measures in place for people who attend MPs’ surgeries to ensure our democracy is protected. Paul Booker Clay Cross, Derbys To have your say, go to mirror.co.uk Act now to stop more MP killings ■ I lived in Leigh-on-Sea in the early 2000s and I can attest to the fact that Sir David Amess was always a dignified, decent and humorous local MP as the many testimonies have highlighted. You don’t have to Yes. We’ve become too complacent. When I go in a shop, more than 50% of people aren’t wearing masks. This is by no means over. DanDy 99 No. Unfortunately, Covid is never going to go away. We just have to accept it and learn to live with it. PalanDy29 the BIG issue Moving tributes have been paid to Conservative MP Sir David Amess, 69, who was murdered at his weekly surgery in his Southend West constituency on Friday. The tragedy comes five years after the murder of anti-Brexit Labour MP Jo Cox and has prompted questions about MPs’ security. You are horrified... be a Conservative to say that. I have never said Brexit supporters are bad people – I simply believe it was a bad decision. I also believe that it is about time we ceased calling terrorists “radicalised”. They are psychotic murderers unworthy of their religion, shielding their dark nature from the world. Rest in peace, Sir David, and all respect to you. Collin Rossini, Dovercourt, Essex ■ If at least a dozen police can arrive on the scene shortly after the brutal murder of Sir David Amess during his Southend West constituency surgery, surely the answer to the safeguarding of MPs is simple. The best move would be to allocate a single police officer to provide each one with security during their important weekly discussions with constituents. Those of us who were children during the Second World War understood our lives were under threat from the Nazis, but sadly it now seems, in so many instances, the enemy is within. It’s so sad for our great country. Paul Marston, Walsall, West Mids ■ With the terrible stabbing of Sir David Amess, it’s high time the Government acted to stop the unfettered knife crime which is now reaching epidemic levels. The sentence for carrying a blade should be upwards of five years – and causing injury with one should be 10 years, with no time off for good behaviour. Surely, the time has now come to warrant action? Geoffrey Lindsay Royton, Gtr Manchester. ■ Sir David Amess MP’s tragic and brutal murder at his weekly surgery in Leigh-on-Sea highlights the issue of MPs’ security and what can be done to make sure this never happens again. Sir David’s murder was an assault on our democracy and way of life. Mark Twiddy, East London ■ Whichever party you support, you can’t help but be horrified at the murder of Tory MP David Amess just for doing his job. This is proof, if it was needed, that we must see the bigger picture and stop the hate and division which has infected politics in recent years. R Forrester, Sheffield tV Josh-ing is such fun I must congratulate the BBC on its new series of Who Do You Think You Are? I watched the first episode on iPlayer recently, which revealed that Josh Widdicombe was directly related to Edward I. It was brilliant and funny, and reminded me so much of when Danny Dyer was told on the same show that he was related to Edward III. Brilliant! Ken Pennington Stalybridge, Tameside Learn to fix our planet ■Can’t ■ we set up an academy run by experts to train young people to fix broken washing machines, TVs, cookers, fridges, microwave ovens and the like, instead of continuing with our throw-away society? I’m sure a washing machine can be repaired cheaply and easily and resold, thereby helping to save the environment. Richard Farrar South West London ■Why ■ are people applauding the celebrities and millionaires who are paying to go into space in rockets? Most of us are worried about climate change, and trying to save the planet and our children’s and grandchildren’s future. These huge rockets must be emitting masses of pollution into the atmosphere. Is there hope at all? I despair.

BEAUTY BOX ONLY £7.50* Free P&P WORTH MORE THAN £90, GET YOUR FIRST BOX HALF PRICE AND SUBSCRIBE TODAY FOR JUST £7.50* HYDRATION dual system ends after shares tank ONLINE retail giant THG caved in to investor pressure by yesterday confirming plans to ditch its co-founder’s “golden share”. The “special share” arrangement, put in place at the time of last year’s stock market listing had given billionaire Matthew Moulding the right to veto any takeover. THG, previously called The Hut Group, has defended the set-up, arguing it allowed the Manchester-based group to fight off any hostile approach – as many UK firms have failed to do. But with THG’s shares in freefall recently, the firm announced it was cancelling the “dual-class” share structure. The arrangement has prevented the company, which owns online retailers 6A leading operator of electric car charging points yesterday announced plans to raise £120million through a stock market listing. Pod Point was founded in 2009 and, as well as installing charging points in people’s homes, has its own network at places including Tesco, Lidl and Center Parcs. REFORM Matthew Moulding such as Lookfantastic, Glossybox and Zavvi, from joining the FTSE 100 under UK listing rules. As well as concerns over THG’s corporate governance, investors have also been spooked by plans for its beauty business and a recent City presentation. Yesterday’s announcement triggered a rally on the firm’s battered share price. Moulding, 49, said: “After the anniversary of our 2020 listing we feel that the time is right to make this next step.” Analysts’ reaction was mixed. Neil Wilson, from markets.com, said: “This dual-class structure was only ever going to last three years. Bringing forward the move by a year is not exactly sweeping reform, nor is it a magic wand.” lewis burger chain racing ahead A vegan burger chain backed by Formula One star Lewis Hamilton is accelerating expansion plans after raising fresh funds valuing it at around £50million.

DM1ST mirror.co.uk/sport TUESDAY 19.10.2021 DAILY MIRROR 41 rugby union England boss Jones calls for Smith as axe falls on World Cup stars On yOur marc By aLeX sPiNK rugby Correspondent @alexspinkmirror EDDIE JONES signalled a changing of the guard as he axed four World Cup finalists and put England’s future in the hands of Marcus Smith. Billy and Mako Vunipola, George Ford and Jamie George (above, circled) have been omitted from the autumn squad, despite returning to near their best form. Jones has instead gone for youth with fly-half Smith, 22, heading a new wave which also features Alex Dombrandt, 24, Harry Randall, 23, Adam Radwan, 23, and Raffi Quirke, 20. England’s head coach was unapologetic for binning a heavy-duty quartet, boasting 264 caps between them, declaring that he had “drawn a line in the sand”. “This squad’s a reflection of how we think we need to move forward,” said Jones (above). “We have a number of players who’ve been through two World Cup campaigns. “With the third World Cup campaign, I’ve seen it previously and my experience tells me, some players can want to go to the World Cup but they don’t really have the will to prepare to win the World Cup. “At the moment I feel they need to regenerate and rejuvenate. They need to add things to their game if they’re going to continue to the next World Cup. “We could have the most experienced side in the world by then, but whether they’ve got that will to go that extra 10 percent, that’s what I’m trying to find out.” Jones says his bold decision was informed by coaching Australia after the 2003 tournament when “I probably kept some players longer than I should have”. Nonetheless it is a big call, coming hours after Saracens boss Mark McCall declared that he would be “amazed” if the Vunipolas and George were jettisoned. Jones acknowledged as much by borrowing a “very relevant” quote from England football boss Gareth Southgate. He revealed: “Gareth said every time a head coach in England makes a selection it is like you have committed a crime. “It is difficult leaving out those senior players. They have been great players, they have been loyal and done well for you. But the job of the head coach is to make judgment and the judgment is that we need to move on to a World Cup selection process.” With that in mind he is excited to finally give Smith his chance, four years after picking him as a teenager straight out of school. “Handling the fanfare and expectation is always the big test a New wave England are looking to the future with exciting fly-half Marcus Smith for players,” said Jones. “How they handle either the criticism or the adulation and keep perspective. “We think Marcus can handle it. We wouldn’t have selected him if we didn’t.” Other notable casualties include Jack Nowell, Dan Robson, Ollie Lawrence, Joe Marchant, summer captain Lewis Ludlow and Beno Obama. Luke Cowan-Dickie, Maro Itoje and Anthony Watson keep their places despite being injured over the weekend. Owen Farrell remains captain and is set to form a 10-12 playmaking axis with fly-half Smith. ■ ■MAORI All Blacks' Sean Wainui, 25, has died in a car accident. Wainui played 10 games for the Maori All Blacks and made 44 appearances for the Chiefs. “We know Sean’s passing will be felt deeply by everyone involved in rugby,” said New Zealand Rugby CEO Mark Robinson.

SNOOKER mark: my career’s in doubt By Hector NuNNs Mark allen fears he could be denied the chance to win the world title. The 35-year-old from antrim enjoyed a hugely emotional success at his home northern Ireland Open late on Sunday night with a dramatic 9-8 comeback win over John Higgins. But after pocketing the £70,000 first prize, allen lifted the lid on his off-table strife. The former Masters champion (above) has been embroiled in a series of legal entanglements, including proceedings for divorce and child support. and the new world no.9 hinted he is far from clear of those issues with his very career in doubt. He said: “I love the sport, but I’m not sure how long I am going to able to play. It is out of my hands, there is a threat of not being able to. “I have the game to compete against the very best. I have the ability to bring a world title back to northern Ireland. I hope I can play on, it’s the only thing I’m good at, the only thing I have done in my life. “But that will take care of itself in the next few months.” Unlock the tax-free cash fromyourhome GET YOUR FREE MirrorMONEY Equity release GUIDE The Mirror has produced a comprehensive and practical guide, which will help explain everything you need to know about equity release – and it’s FREE to all our readers.

O’Brien (left), who has formed a partnership with Graeme McPherson, has sent out 56 winners and bagged £422,481 in prize money, more than £100,000 ahead of 12-times champ Paul Nicholls. “It means the world to us to get back to Cheltenham,” said O’Brien. “It was a privilege to be there last year, but eerie without any crowds. “To have the crowds back will be great. “I hope to have two or three runners.” O’Brien nominated Imperial Alcazar as a horse to follow for the 2021/22 season. “I should think my best chance this weekend will be Marquis Of Carabas in the amateur riders’ chase on Friday.” O’BRIEN GUNNING FOR CHELTENHAM GLORY

NORMALLY £24.99. WITH DISCOUNT £22.49 rory lands 20th pga title but admits: ‘i was done with golf at the ryder cup’ By Neil McleMaN RORY McILROY relaunched his career with his 20th victory on the PGA Tour at the CJ Cup – then said he’d wanted to halt his season at the Ryder Cup. The four-time Major champion broke down in tears at Whistling Straits on the final day of Europe’s defeat last month. But the Ulsterman said his Sunday singles victory over Olympic champion Xander Schauffele “sparked a little flame.” And after vowing to stop striving for perfection, McIlroy returned to shoot weekend rounds of 62 and 66 in Las Vegas to beat Open champion Collin Morikawa by a stroke. The new world No.8 said: “On the Saturday night of the Ryder Cup, I was done with golf. I did not want to see golf again until 2022. I was really disappointed with how I had played. Then I talked about that Sunday singles match and that sort of sparked a little bit of a flame again. “Against Xander I won my point by doing whatever I could. I wasn’t trying to be perfect, I wasn’t trying to hit shots that I wasn’t comfortable hitting, I just went out there to try to win my match. “Part of the emotion at the end of it was to do with that week but it was also probably to do with the last few months in terms of searching to try to get better and the realisation that I don’t need to search for anything, it’s all right here. “I just need to play golf, I need to simplify it, I need to just be me. For the last few months I was maybe trying to be someone else. “This week was a great reminder that you don’t need to be perfect to be a great golfer.” McIlroy’s reaction brings into question his relationship with Pete Cowen, who has worked on his swing since before the Masters. He was world No.1 when the pandemic stopped golf in March 2020 but he slipped to No.15 this summer – his lowest ranking since turning pro in 2009 – despite winning the Wells Fargo Championship in May. He entered the CJ Cup at No.14 and started the weekend nine shots off the lead but he rolled in a 35-foot eagle putt on the par-five 14th on Sunday on his way to 25 under par. The 32-year-old is the 39th man to win at least 20 times on the PGA Tour and will secure lifetime membership when he completes 15 years as a member in 2023. McIlroy, who became a father to Poppy last year, will now take a month at his Florida home before playing in Dubai next month. “It’s a great way to start the season,” he said. “It’s four weeks to build on what’s happened here.”

The new British No.1 beat Georgia’s Nikoloz Basilashvili 3-6 6-4 6-1 at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells for his first ATP Masters 1000 title. And the new world No.16 is also up to 10th in the Singles Race to qualify for the season-ending Nitto ATP Finals in Piedmont. Norrie, 26, said he had an appetite for Italian all week after dining every night at the lucky Mamma Gina restaurant in nearby Palm Desert. “I went the first night,” he said. “They told me Dominic Thiem and Juan Martín del Potro won the tournament here and they ate here every night. “I said I would come back if I win. I came back and had five or six nights in a row there. The same meal on match days. I mixed it up on the other days. I am usually never like that. Maybe it did work this week!” Norrie (left with girlfriend Louise Jacobi after his win), who started the year ranked world No.71, won his first ATP Tour title in Mexico in July and his remarkable consistency has seen him reach six finals. The top eight players of the year will compete at the Pala Alpitour in Turin from November 14 to 21 - the event has moved from London’s O 2 . With Rafa Nadal out injured, Norrie sits only 160 points behind ninth-placed Hubert Hurkacz and will play in Vienna, Paris and Stockholm over the next month in a late bid to quality. “It would be nice to make it but I’m going to keep going, keep taking care of what I can and handling what I can,” he said. None of the Big Three of Novak Djokovic, Nadal or Roger Federer was at Indian Wells, their era of domination drawing to an inevitable end. Norrie won in 1hr and 49min, recovering from being down a iT’S a ShOe-dUnniT FROM BACK PAGE arrived at the Indian Wells Tennis garden to find his sneakers had disappeared and he had to break in a new pair against Nikoloz Basilashvili. The new world No.15 lost the first set before fighting back to win his first Masters title. and Norrie will now be able to buy a cupboard full of new trainers after banking £880,990. His shoe mishap followed in the footsteps of andy Murray’s. The Scot’s “smelly” pair, with his wedding ring attached, went missing from his California hotel before they were recovered. Norrie said: I don’t know what people have against the Brits. Luckily I didn’t have a wedding ring attached. “I was worried but I wore the new ones in a little bit and came good in the end.” break at 3-1 in the second set. He said on court: “It means so much to me, my biggest title. I’m so happy. It’s absolutely massive for me and my team. I can’t really believe it.” The victory caps an extraordinary few weeks for British tennis with Emma Raducanu the new British women’s No.1 after her US Open triumph. But unlike the teenager from Bromley, Norrie has taken a more indirect route to the top of the game. Born in South Africa to British parents, his family moved to New Zealand before he became a college star at the Texas Christian University. Physically he is a monster who can run all day. But the left-hander has also improved his serve and groundstrokes with the contrast between his loopy forehand and his flat backhand posing problems to opponents. Now, despite not getting past the third round in a Grand Slam, he is only three wins away from joining Andy Murray and Tim Henman as the only British players this century to win 50 Tour-level matches in a year. Murray, who lost in the third round in Indian Wells, said: “He’s a great example for not just British players but all tennis players to look at and go, if you put the effort in day in, day out and properly dedicate yourself to the sport, have an attitude like he does, it can take you a long, long way. “I knew he was good, but to be top 20 in the world and pushing for a spot in the Tour finals is an incredible effort.” Murray plays Frances Tiafoe at the European Open in Antwerp today. rugby league france v england, saturday, 2.30pm CAll-Up IS A joR-DRoppER be the goal now By JUlie STOTT JORDAN ABDULL is stunned to be in line for his England debut against France on Saturday.

46 DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 19.10.2021 ENGLAND IN THE DOCK beautiful game seeing a return to bad old days FA lucky with one-game ban & £85,000 fine after Euros final DM1ST COMMENT By JOHN CROSS Chief Football Writer @johncrossmirror ANYONE at Wembley on Sunday, July 11 this year will remember the day not for the football at the Euro 2020 final. But for boozed-up, drug-fuelled hooligans bringing shame on the nation in what was supposed to be England’s finest hour. The Football Association can count themselves lucky with an £85,000 fine and having to play a game behind closed doors. Wembley that day was a terrifying place, a return to the bad old days of drunken yobs running amok with violence, threats and anger in the air. What is perhaps even more worrying is that it is becoming a regular occurrence in not just football but also at racing too, where there have been problems. There were an estimated 250,000 people at Wembley for England’s Euros final with Italy three months ago when ticketless fans rushed the turnstiles. It was a shameful day which paints a terrible picture for English football and their ability to host a major tournament either for the 2030 World Cup, 2028 Euros or any major European final. Perhaps just as troubling is that this was not a one-off. It was a grim day but it highlighted the growing problem of some of the worst scenes that football has endured since the 1980s when hooliganism was at its worst. Leicester City’s Europa League clash saw appalling clashes with Napoli fans (inset, top) who came for trouble – and got what they wanted. A year ago violence flared between Southampton and Portsmouth fans, while Wigan and Bolton supporters clashed at the weekend. These are regular occurrences up and down the country. Hungarian ultras were joined by hardcore Polish supporters at Wembley last week to cause problems after the England players had complained they were targeted for racist abuse in Budapest and Warsaw. Now England have been punished, the UEFA sanction after the Euros final is a truly dark day for English football. The rest of Europe often looks at England as being arrogant, trying to lecture everyone else on how to behave and on racism. But, as even Gareth Southgate has said before, they will have to get their own house in order before they can start thinking about telling others how to behave. English football has lost control. Supporters of the Big Six rose up in protest at the European Super League at the end of last season and, while their point was well made, it could not entirely excuse the trouble which went with it. WEMBLEY MAYHEM Thugs tear down barriers before the Euro final Manchester United had to abandon their game with Liverpool because of the scenes outside, and Old Trafford is already on red alert for this weekend. So-called supporters descended on Wembley that day in July with the intention of causing trouble. After months of being cooped up because of Covid lockdowns, they were let off the leash and in the mood to cause mayhem. The FA must take responsibility for not ensuring the stadium was policed well enough, with too few stewards on duty to stop thousands of ticketless yobs (abovet) forcing their way in. But outside, the local authority and police got it horribly wrong. They misjudged the darkening mood of the yob and hooligan culture which is threatening the very heart of our beautiful game once more. shameful day for football FROM BACK PAGE embarrassing and shameful day for English football. FA bosses are confident it will not affect their chances of hosting a major tournament – as they look towards the 2028 Euros and 2030 World Cup. But it will not reflect well and may yet have an impact. The Euros final on July 11 saw shocking crowd violence and disturbances as ticketless fans rushed the turnstiles to force their way in as hooligans swarmed around Wembley. Police and stewards were overwhelmed while loyal England supporters were attacked and even friends and family members of England players were forced from their seats. Police reported 51 arrests – 26 at Wembley and the rest in central London – while 19 officers were injured. The UEFA control, ethics and disciplinary body said the behindclosed-doors game was “for the lack of order and discipline inside and around the stadium”. And the fine was “for the lack of order and discipline inside and around the stadium, for the invasion of the field of play, for throwing of objects and for the disturbances during the national anthems”. It is understood that much of the blame was put on a lack of policing and on local authorities, as they are responsible for areas outside the stadium. And UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin has insisted Wembley will remain a key venue for major finals.

DM1St mirror.co.uk/sport tUESDaY 19.10.2021 DaILY MIRROR 47 @StanCollymore Stan Collymore United like to give bosses time but it must be time for a rethink over Solskjaer HOW is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still in a job? If Manchester United lived in a modern reality, Ole wouldn’t have been in the top 20 candidates to manage them. That he got the job was purely down to an emotional link. The emotion is there, the club knowledge is there, the club legend is there and let’s fit it to our circumstances. However, there was no way Ole had the requisite CV to manage Manchester United – especially a Manchester United side in flux. Once he’s in as manager, you can see them thinking, ‘We hope he grows with the club, we hope he develops youngsters. Give him longevity by always backing him’. It means these difficult questions over his performance aren’t brought up and he gets more and more comfortable in the COLLYWOBBLER Well done Steve Bruce for managing 1,000 games. The problem is I can’t think of one that was memorable! It’s fantastic for him. Amazing longevity, 10 clubs in 22 years, almost always in work. But managers these days would rather do 200 to 300 games and get a club on the front foot and create some excitement. job, in the hope that better results and trophies are around the corner. But the trophies have not come. The consistency hasn’t come. I can feel the hand of Sir Alex Ferguson (right) doing what he wanted to do with David Moyes. And that means going into hallowed corridors of Old Trafford and saying, ‘You stuck with me 30 years ago and I paid you back with two decades of dominance. This is the way it should be run… You give managers time, you give them time’. Moyes (left) didn’t last very long on his six-year contract of course and the only reason Ole is still there today is because of the perception that the club like to give their managers time, as they did with Fergie. Their results this season, losing in the manner they did against Leicester, against Aston Villa at home, is not consistent at all. The Alas, now it’s Smith and moans I WANT Dean Smith to have a long career as Aston Villa manager but I am wondering if there are deficiencies in his approach? Are Villa sufficiently streetwise under his management, for instance? I know Smith well because we were apprentices together. He likes to play through the lines and encourages an open, question lingers as to how he is still manager there and it comes down to lacking an understanding of modern football. Yes, you give a manager time until he proves to you that he does not have the ability to do it anymore. And Ole (above) doesn’t have the ability and the skill set to manager United to Premier League success. It is no thrill to say that, because he is a great bloke. But sometimes you have to say it. The romantic and e m o t i o n a l attachment which got him the job and gave him time wears out at some point. United won’t win the title because they are too inconsistent. You look at the team sheet and it looks like Galacticos have been thrown at a tactics board. They have the second best squad in the Premier League in attractive style of play. But unless his team becomes a bit more muscular, a bit more physical, a bit more savvy, they will struggle. Villa’s owners want to get into Europe. They don’t want to loiter in mid-table. And in a bid to get there, they have let Smith (right) grow as a manager. But they will not be happy with what they saw at terms of quality and depth but haven’t a clue how to use it. You need someone in the club who says here are the 11 or 14 players I will be relying on in the big games, like Manchester City and Liverpool do. And then say we’re trimming down the fat and getting rid of some of the monster earners who are never going to get a regular place. There are wildly different qualities in the No.1 and No.2 players for each position. Some can do a job and others can’t. It needs clear answers, clear leadership, to be able to rattle cages and put your arm around people – and Ole looks lost in all of those aspects. The players are not responding to him. They are not competing eight games in, so why leave it until 38 for it to become a selffulfilling prophecy? So, change it now. Villa Park on Saturday when their side threw away a 2-0 lead and lost 3-2. A classic case of mismanagement of the last 10-15 minutes. They didn’t keep the ball, they didn’t do the nasty things. It would be no surprise if Villa’s owners are looking at West Ham, Everton, and Leeds and telling Smith they need to be better. LVG’s the best man to hit the right Toon NEWcASTLE need a manager who is the epitome of calm, someone who can provide a firm hand on the tiller for two years. Surely it’s time for Toon, struggling badly in the Premier League after eight games, to appoint one of the grand names of European football. I am talking about a Louis van Gaal (above), a Guus Hiddink, maybe a Ronald Koeman (if he leaves Barcelona). Or perhaps someone with the experience of former England boss Roy Hodgson. If only Sir Bobby Robson was still alive and in his prime.... Newcastle need someone who has been there and done it, a manager with experience of leading a club in a football-mad city. The new owners had Rafa Benitez lined up 18 months ago and were ready to hand him the keys to the kingdom. But now he’s at Everton, they have difficult decisions to make. I like Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard as lIverpool’S Fab Four make them strong title contenders again. roberto Firmino, Diogo Jota, Sadio Mane, and Mo Salah (all right) have 20 goals already between them this season and we are only in the second half of october. liverpool have four strikers who can single-handedly win a match for them, but Chelsea have only one in romelu lukaku. Manchester City, the managers but I’m not sure they are right for a club in a serious state of upheaval. I’m not sure it is fair to hand them such a tough task so early in their managerial carers. Rangers boss Gerrard (below) is already at a huge club – would it be prudent for him to look at Newcastle United? He and Lampard should look for a club at which there is already a director of football, where the scouting network is well established. Newcastle won’t be signing Kylian Mbappe any time soon, no matter what Toon fans, giddy with excitement over the Saudi-backed takeover, might believe. They need a recruitment department capable of signing a star ahead of time, before he costs £100million. But what they need more immediately is a new manager to lead them to respectability. Toon fans wanted two things: Mike Ashley out and a functioning football club. For that second wish to be granted they need to show patience. title favourites, don’t have a striker who guarantees 20 goals a season, though it didn’t do them too much harm last season. Instead of signing the prolific Harry Kane, they opted for a midfield playmaker in Jack Grealish. Maybe it will come back to haunt them. Mane, and Mo Instead of signing the City have the best squad, and they will be there or thereabouts. But if liverpool’s front four keep scoring, it will be hard to finish ahead of them.

DM1ST champions league Sterling right to be rattled From DaviD anDerson in Bruges raheem Sterling’S frustration at not starting more often for manchester City is totally understandable, according to team-mate Kevin De Bruyne. Boss Pep guardiola (below) has told Sterling he cannot guarantee him more game time after the england star revealed he is open to moving abroad because he does not feel he is playing enough. Saturday’s win over Burnley was just Sterling’s fifth start this season and De Bruyne (both above) sympathises. “rotation is important because playing four competitions, and mostly going far in them, is a tough ask sometimes,” said the Belgian. “But i understand the frustration because i’m a player and you have some players who need more rhythm to get into it and maybe raz is someone who needs more, i’m a player who needs that also. “Sometimes it’s tough to play one game yes, one game no. “it can be frustrating, but we try to help each other so that’s the only thing we can do as players for each other.” Mendy ‘now a world star’ anDreaS ChriStenSen has lauded Chelsea goalkeeper edouard mendy. mendy pulled off a string of saves against Brentford as Chelsea won 1-0 and defender Christiansen said: “he showed on Saturday he’s one of the top keepers in the world, not just the Premier league. “You can see how important he is to us, to the team. Yet again we are lucky we have him. “People can see and recognise what he can do, the quality he has. We just enjoy having him here.” thiago Silva and antonio rudiger have bolstered Chelsea’s defensive options ahead of tomorrow’s Champions league clash with malmo. kdb: i dON’T REMEMbER lOsiNg fiNal oUT oF iT Dazed De Bruyne is ruled out during the final Head injury left much of the game a blur for City star From DaviD anDerson in Bruges @mirroranderson KeVin De Bruyne is not haunted by the memory of losing a Champions League final as he can barely recall any of that night in Porto. A collision with Chelsea’s Antonio Rudiger left the Manchester City playmaker with a fractured eye socket and a broken nose. He was still in his kit when he left hospital the following morning and returned dazed to the team hotel. “I don’t remember a lot after the incident so there aren’t a lot of memories,” he said. “I remember some chances in the first half and the goal. “After the collision I don’t remember a lot. I don’t r emember how I got to the hospital. I remember going Bruges: Mignolet, Mata, Hendry, Nsoki, Sobol, Rits, Balanta, Sowah, Vanaken, Lang, De Ketelaere Man City: Ederson, Walker, Dias, Laporte, Zinchenko, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, Rodri, Foden, Jesus, Grealish ref: Istvan Kovacs (Romania) back in the morning to the team hotel at 10am still with my City kit on. It’s sport and it happens. It’s not the best thing that ever happened but you get on with it.” De Bruyne is also hazy about meeting Khaldoon Al Mubarak the following morning when the City chairman told him he would win the Champions League for the club one day. “I think he spoke to the team in the evening or the morning, I’ve no idea,” said the Belgium international. “He said he was happy with what I contributed to the team and in the year. He said some positive words like we’ll be back, we’ll be fighting again to try to win the trophy. “It was nice to hear that from the chairman because it was a big blow for everybody.” De Bruyne, 30, understands why critics say City must lift the Champions League to be considered a great side, but is satisfied with his haul of three Premier Leagues, one FA Cup and five League Cups. “In the last six years we’ve been one time in the last 16, the other five times the quarterfinal or better so w e’r e a l w a y s competing,” he said. “We have not managed to win it, but we are trying. Hopefully in my period here we can get one. “Does it define your legacy? group a table P W D L F A Pts PSG......................2 1 1 0 3 1 4 Bruges ................2 1 1 0 3 2 4 Man City ............2 1 0 1 6 5 3 RB Leipzig .........2 0 0 2 4 8 0 For people outside maybe. It depends. You look at the situation and I’m happy with what we’ve done as a club for the last six years.” De Bruyne has started six of the last seven games and feels sharper after damaging ankle ligaments at Euro 2020. He is excited about playing Bruges tonight in his first club match in his homeland since he left Genk in January 2012 to join Chelsea aged 20. He thinks Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski (above) should win this year’s Ballon d’Or ahead of himself and City team-mates Phil Foden, Ruben Dias, Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling. “I’d choose Lewandowski for what he’s done goalscoring wise,” he said. bruges v manCHester City: tHe big matCH faCts •This is the first-ever meeting between Bruges and Manchester City in European competition, with the Citizens the 11th different English side that the Belgian club have faced in Europe. •In all European competitions, Bruges are winless in 12 matches against English opponents (D3 L9) since beating Chelsea 1-0 in the Cup Winners’ Cup in February 1995. •The Blues have won five of their six European matches against Belgian opponents, losing the other 2-0 against Standard Liege in November 1978 in the UEFA Cup. •The Premier League champions last match against a side from Belgium came in October 2003 against KSC Lokeren, a 1-0 away victroy in UEFA Cup with a goal from Nicolas Anelka. • Bruges are unbeaten in their last BrUgES v MANChESTEr CITy group A, KicK-off 5.45pm four group stage games in the Champions League (W2 D2), picking up eight points in the process – this is their best points haul over a run of four games in the competition in their history. •The joint leaders of the Belgium league have only once gone five consecutive games without defeat in the Champions League, during a run of six ending in October 2019 (W1 D5).

The Reds take on the Spanish champions in a clash of Group B’s big guns in Madrid. It is the first of backto-back meetings with Diego Simeone’s side which could decide who goes through as group winners. The teams last met at the last-16 stage of the Champions League just before the pandemic halted the world. T h a t t i m e Simeone’s side outsmarted the Reds over two legs – winning 1-0 and 3-2 – but the Spaniards’ style of play irritated the Liverpool manager, who knows his men will have to battle to unlock one of the meanest defences in football. When asked if it will be a football war, Klopp (above, with James Milner) said: “It will be. Atleti are the best of that sort of team because they have the best players. “The problem with Atletico is the quality they have and the desire they show. Would it be the style I want to play? “No. I couldn’t, I’m not the person for it, but we are all different and that’s fine. “It is all about winning football games and I remember we played an absolutely exceptional game at home against Atletico. “We haven’t forgotten how bad we were at their ground and I’m pretty sure Diego hasn’t forgotten how good we were at home so I am pretty sure there is a way of causing them problems. “But you have to play a topclass game and be incredibly brave. If you don’t do that they eat you.” Liverpool will have an in-form Mo Salah at their disposal but Klopp said there is still an issue over his new Anfield contract. Salah, who has scored 10 goals in 10 games this season, has less than two years left on his current deal. Asked whether Salah’s red-hot form – he scored a goal-of-theseason contender at Watford on Saturday – will make resolving his contract issue easier, Klopp said: “I don’t know. We’ll see.” One man whose long-term future is certain to be at Anfield is Virgil van Dijk, who committed himself to the club in summer. Yesterday marked 12 months since he received the diagnosis that he would need serious surgery on an ACL injury suffered in last October’s Merseyside derby. But the Dutch star’s return this season has given the Reds more defensive stability. “I’m still on the way,” said Van Dijk. “I know there are a lot of people wondering if I can get back to where I was but the only thing I can do is try my best each and every game. That’s what I do. “I feel like I am improving. I’ve said in previous interviews I am not a robot, I have come back from a very serious injury.” ATLETico mAdrid v LivErpooL: big mATch fAcTS •atletico madrid and liverpool last met in the last 16 of the 2019-20 UeFa champions league, with the Spaniards winning both legs, 1-0 at home and 3-2 away in extra-time. •reds have failed to win any of four champions league matches against atletico (d2 l2), only facing Basel as often (four) without winning in european cup/ champions league history. •liverpool have lost six of their last seven away european games in Spain (d1) since beating real madrid in the last 16 in 2008-09. reds’ last win in Spain was against english rivals, beating Spurs 2-0 in the 2019 champions league final in atletico’s home stadium, Wanda metropolitano. •atletico madrid are winless in four home champions league matches (d3 l1), their jointlongest run without a home win in the competition (also four in december 2009). they have only scored once from 45 shots in this run and with an expected goals tally of 4.4, have netted 3.4 goals fewer than expected. •reds haven’t lost an away game in the group stage of the competition since September 2019 (0-2 v Napoli), winning five and drawing one of their last six. Mighty Mo is the one to fear DieGO SiMeOne accepts Liverpool are back to their best – and led by the “extraordinary” Mohamed Salah. But the Atletico Madrid coach still says his team “will try to find ways to hurt them”. The Argentinian coach (above) masterminded victories in both legs of their last-16 encounter in 2020 which ended the Reds’ reign as european champions. However, Jurgen Klopp’s team look even stronger this time around, while Salah (top) has 10 goals in as many appearances. Simeone, whose side have lost just one of their last 15 european games at the Wanda Metropolitano, said: “Mohamed Salah is an extraordinary player, who’s been playing at a fantastic level for the last few years. “Liverpool are going through a fantastic spell, they seem to have a different rhythm, and it is a pleasure to see them play. “They have no fear to leave spaces at the back. They press high, play a high line, have speed. “i don’t expect anything other than a team who will make things very difficult for us. “We need to match their intensity and then look for our own chances. We will try to find ways to hurt them.” TIME FOR CHANGE Pogba says United need a shake-up Board still backing Solskjaer from back page board made it clear to Solskjaer the club “still have complete faith in him moving forward”. The Norwegian has seen the wheels come off following a positive start, with United winning just one of their last five games in all competitions. After the Leicester defeat Paul Pogba warned the club “need to change something” to keep their season alive and a growing number of fans have called for Solskjaer to go. But Old Trafford chief executive Ed Woodward and his fellow directors have privately supported him as the man to turn things round. United host Atalanta in the Champions League tomorrow and Liverpool visit on Sunday. Then it is a trip to Tottenham, the return leg with Atalanta and derby with Manchester City at Old Trafford. These games could make or break their season, but it is understood that even if some results go against them, Solskjaer will not be axed. pimblett’s crash pad By JOHN CROss UFC fighter Paddy Pimblett was kicked out of Watford’s 5-0 defeat by Liverpool on Saturday for celebrating in the home end. Liverpool fan Pimblett, given tickets by Watford keeper Ben Foster, accused Vicarage Road stewards of being on a “power trip”. Pimblett wrote on Instagram: “Cannot believe the audacity of these stewards singling us out when multiple people around us were celebrating. They were on a power trip.” And in a message to keeper Foster, he said: “Ben Foster, I love you lad, but I hope Watford go down, yous are horrible.”

50 DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 19.10.2021 DM1ST arsenal 2 crystal palace 2 Aubameyang 8, Lacazette 90+5 Benteke 50, Edouard 73 southgate’s ‘no’ to talks with wenger By John Cross GARETH SOUTHGATE will not be taking up Arsene Wenger’s offer to discuss FIFA’s plans to stage a World Cup every two years. World football’s governing body invited all national coaches to take part in talks with the former Arsenal boss this week about proposals for a new-look global calendar. England coach Southgate (above) spoke to Wenger earlier in the year and does not feel the need to do so again. He came away from those talks feeling relatively positive but has since decided the shake-up “makes no sense” as in one set of proposals there may be only one international window each year for England fixtures. Instead, the FA’s Mark Bullingham will take part in an online sessions for chief executives being held between today and Thursday. Wenger, FIFA’s chief of global football development, will try to win over sceptics, with the World Cup idea being greeted unfavourably by the Premier League, big-name players and UEFA. Player welfare, international windows and the future of the women’s game are also on the agenda. FIFA is also talking to broadcasters and other major stakeholders. Wenger (above) said: “As a coach of the men’s national teams, their input is essential. “Opportunities for us to come together are few and far between but we must embrace these occasions as such dialogue helps us all to protect the unique place that football has in the world and to make it truly global.” barden given cancer shock By TonY BAnKs NORWICH goalkeeper Dan Barden has been diagnosed with testicular cancer. The 20-year-old (above), on loan with Scottish Premiership side Livingston, will now take a break from football. He said: “It’s been a very difficult and challenging period, but the support of my family, friends and colleagues has helped get me through the last few weeks.” The Wales Under-21 keeper will now be closely monitored on a treatment programme after undergoing follow-up tests following the initial diagnosis. ARTBREAK Vieira so close Vieira so close to a glorious return... but Lacazette rescues Mik 2-2 1-0 By John Cross Chief Football Writer @johncrossmirror THEY celebrated the injury-time equaliser as if it was a victory. Substitute Alexandre Lacazette smashed home to snatch a point Arsenal barely deserved after another shambolic performance. Gunners fans could see it, they knew their team had got away with it, Patrick Vieira so nearly ruining his own homecoming party but Crystal Palace ended up having to settle for a 1-1 draw. Arsenal threw away a first half lead given to them by Pierre- Emerick Aubameyang when they pressed the self-destruct button, allowing Christian Benteke and Odsonne Edouard to turn it around with second half goals. A three-game winning run was ended by a draw at Brighton and now despite Lacazette coming to the rescue five minutes into added time, more doubts were emerging over whether Mikel Arteta is the man to take the club forward. On this evidence, Arsenal went for the wrong former captain. Vieira instilled more passion, more discipline and more drive into his team than his counterpart could manage. Had

mirror.co.uk/sport FOR PAT long. Arsenal were just as it not been for Aaron Ramsdale, it could have been worse. Those who complained the keeper was overpriced at £30million must now be thinking him a bargain. Arsenal started brilliantly, they were sharp, incisive and fully deserved their goal after just eight minutes. Nicolas Pepe was lively down the right and exchanged passes with Takehiro T omiyasu before Pepe unleashed a terrific curling shot which Palace keeper Vicente Guaita clawed away. But Aubameyang was alert and pounced on the rebound to squeeze home a shot from an acute angle. It seemed 1-2 Edouard scores a screamer past keeper Ramsdale to fire Palace in front Arsenal had lift off and their attacking line-up, Thomas Partey sitting in midfield in a 4-1-4-1 formation, really pushed Palace back. But they failed to make their early dominance and pressure tell and, as passes began to go astray, the visitors came right back into the contest. Palace looked increasingly dangerous on the break, Benteke led the line well and caused Arsenal all manner of problems with his lay-offs and link-up play with Jordan Ayew and Odsonne Edouard. Tempers boiled over just before half time and Palace were lucky not to be down to 10 men. Bukayo Saka was DM1ST He’s still the man with a golden gun By Darren Lewis @MirrorDarren STILL class. Still the dominant force at Arsenal. Still able to turn everything he touches here in England into footballing gold. Patrick Vieira turned cheers into jeers here at the Emirates as the legendary midfielder inspired his Crystal Palace side to come from behind with the kind of character that he boasted in abundance. Whisper it but if it all does go a bit Pete Tong for Mikel Arteta, you just wonder whether Arsenal’s Invincible might just have left an impression in the mind of Josh Kroenke. Arteta’s Gunners may have scored early in the first half and left it late for their second. But Palace were easily the better side. The south Londoners, remember, were without the injured Wilfried Zaha. They had no right to be this good. Aren’t they normally a side that struggles without their main man? Not any more. Palace shown a yellow for a trip on Ayew and soon after James McArthur blatantly kicked Arsenal’s England winger up in the air on the edge of the box. Referee Mike Dean produced only a yellow card, VAR Peter Bankes checked but did not intervene. The decision looked a shocker, with McArthur lucky to stay on the pitch. Palace went close in firsthalf injury time when Arsenal failed to clear from a corner. Conor Gallagher smashed in a shot and Ramsdale produced a fantastic diving stop to save his team yet again. The reprieve did not last were so dominant that neutrals and some home fans in the stands were left wondering how the Gunners were still ahead at the break, courtesy of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s eighth minute goal. Christian Benteke powered home the equalizer his side’s performance deserved shortly after the restart. Arteta’s £50million defender Ben White couldn’t lay a glove on Odsonne Edouard for his superb second before a late Alexandre Lacazette strike shared the spoils. The new Palace is taking shape very nicely under Vieira (above). The three-title winner has recruited well with Conor Gallagher, Michael Olise, Marc Guehi and Edouard among the fine acquisitions. Not given a chance to coach by Arsene Wenger, he credits Manchester City with helping him on to the managerial ladder. That support is bearing fruit. sloppy in the second half. Thomas Partey dithered on the ball, Ayew nicked it off him and there was Benteke who had time and space on the edge of the box to pick his spot. Albert Sambi Lokonga - on for the injured Saka - was then caught in possession, Gallagher burst forward and this time Edouard smashed a shot beyond Ramsdale and in off the bar.

The former Bournemouth boss, 43, (above) is among several out-of-work bosses being considered by the Magpies’ new owners to replace steve Bruce. Others include bookies favourite Paulo Fonseca, who agreed a deal to take over at Tottenham before Nuno Espirito santo’s appointment, former chelsea manager Frank lampard and ex-Dortmund boss lucien Favre. Rangers chief steven Gerrard is also highly-rated but the Newcastle hierarchy don’t want to make enemies by poaching domestic talent. Newcastle are expected to decide on Bruce’s future within the next few days, although there are still differing opinions on just who the new man should be. PoLiCe PRoBe toon FAnS’ ‘RACiSt CHAnt’ By siMOn BirD NEWCASTLE and police have launched an investigation into alleged racial abuse directed at Spurs fans. One Tottenham supporter claimed on social media that visiting fans were the target of chants referencing Auschwitz and jews as they left St James’ Park.

A club statement said: “Our message is clear - football is for everyone. Discrimination has absolutely no place in football, in the street, online or in wider society and we will not tolerate it under any circumstances.” BRADY: BiG tiMe won’t CoMe eASY Stoke City v Bournemouth Championship, 7.45pm By TOnY BanKs ROBBiE BRADY has warned Bournemouth that the championship is the toughest league to get out of.

10 DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 19.10.2021 DM1ST EXTRAPUZZLES Logic Using the grid below, can you work out each player’s winning hand and pot? Solutions at the end Husband and wife duo Scott and Madeline like to host a weekly poker tournament at their house. This week there are five separate tables. By the end of the five games, each table has a winner that has won with a different poker hand to receive a pot of money. Scott and Madeline are discussing the results so they can update the club’s website. “The youngest player won £11 less than the player who won with a flush,” said Scott to his wife. “Salvador is our veteran poker player, and the oldest at the tournament. Despite this, he won less than the player who won with a full house,” added Madeline. “We can feature that fact in our online report,” replied Scott. “Sierra beat the opponents at her table by playing a three of a kind to take a pot worth more than £75,” said Madeline. “Okay, I’ll add that to the website. The 39-year-old player won £49, but Gordon won over twice this much,” responded Scott. “Some other information to add is that neither Mindy nor the 21-year-old played the straight flush to win,” said Madeline. “Right. I also noted that the 45-year-old player did not win the biggest pot,” said Scott. From the couple’s conversation, can you determine what each player’s hand was, and how large their pot of winnings was? Salvador Mindy Sierra Dylan Gordon £38 £49 £60 £95 £105 Straight flush Full house 21 years 27 years 39 years 45 years 58 years Straight flush Full house Flush Straight Three of a kind £38 £49 £60 £95 £105 Flush Straight Three of a kind Word Spiral Starting from 1, fill in the grid clockwise with four-letter words.

BBC Good Food daily recipe to collect Egg custard tarts These Portuguese-style golden tartlets are perfect to finish off a dinner party or as an afternoon treat with coffee For the pastry 200g plain flour, plus extra for rolling 1 tbsp golden caster sugar 100g unsalted butter, chilled For the Filling 4 egg yolks 1 tbsp cornflour 100g golden caster sugar 1 vanilla pod 1 cinnamon stick thick strip of lemon zest 250ml milk 250ml double cream Tip the flour and sugar into a 1 large mixing bowl. Slowly add around 150ml very cold water, or just enough so that you have a soft dough that picks up all the crumbs from the outside of the bowl, but isn’t too sticky to handle. Wrap the dough in cling film 2 and chill while you coarsely grate the butter. Roll the dough out onto a floured work surface to a 30 x 40cm rectangle, then sprinkle the surface with half the grated butter to form an even layer. Don’t worry if the butter clumps together, just make sure the pieces are evenly distributed. With the shorter edge facing you, fold the top third of the dough towards you to the centre and the bottom third up over it. Give the dough a quarter turn, then roll out to the same size as before, sprinkle with the rest of the butter and repeat. Wrap TOMORROW’s Recipe: NexT level scOTch eggs the dough tightly in cling film and chill for 30 mins while you make the filling. Put the egg 3 yolks and cornflour in a large heatproof mixing bowl and whisk in the sugar until pale and thick. Split the vanilla pod in half along the length and scrape out the seeds. Put the seeds in a medium-sized saucepan, along with the empty pod, the cinnamon stick and the lemon zest. Pour the milk and cream over the aromatics, stir and heat very gently until only just simmering. Pour the hot mixture over the egg yolks and whisk well. Pour the custard back into the pan and warm through for 2-3 mins or until thickened slightly to a consistency similar to double cream. Strain the custard through a sieve into a large jug and set aside, covered with cling film. 4 Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Grease a 12-hole muffin tin with butter.
