Health secretary sajid Javid confirmed the proposals “will not be going ahead” yesterday, just days after ministers had defended the policy to sceptical MPs. Boris Johnson had previously announced that members of the public would be required to show proof they have had two doses of a Covid-19 GeRALdiNe SCOtt wmnnewsdesk@reachplc.com vaccine in order to gain entry to clubs and other large-scale events in England. But following a backlash from Tory MPs, the Health secretary said the idea had been shelved. He told the BBC’s The andrew Marr show: “I’ve never liked the idea of saying to people you must show your papers or something to do what is just an everyday activity, but we were right to properly look at it. “We’ve looked at it properly and whilst we should keep it in reserve as a potential option, I’m pleased to say that we will not be going ahead with plans for vaccine passports.” labour’s deputy leader angela Rayner said the rapid change showed that “the Government’s approach to Covid passports has been shambolic from the start”. Michael Kill, chief executive of the night Time Industries association, said: “We hope that businesses will now be able to plan for the future with some degree of certainty, regain confidence from customers and the workforce, and start to rebuild a sector that has consistently been at the sharp end of this pandemic.” In scotland a motion on introducing vaccine passports was passed in the scottish Parliament last Thursday. »Full report: Page 10 Get the pApeR yOu LOve deLiveRed diReCt tO yOuR dOOR & SAve 40% see page 24 or go to newspapersubs.co.uk/wnD

WESTERN MORNING NEWS Monday, September 13, 2021 3 £7 million boost for Plymouth thanks to SailGP PLYMOuTH is celebrating a boost of nearly £7 million thanks to the spectacular SailGP in the Sound this summer. Financial experts have reported that an estimated 27,500 spectators helped to swell the coffers of city businesses in a much-needed post-lockdown boost. Accountancy firm Deloitte said that the weekend event in July attracted a gross spend of £8.9 million, including the amount spent by spectators, event organisers and the teams. The company said that £6.9 million went through the tills of city businesses after tax. Plymouth City Council, which commissioned the report, has already said it is in detailed negotiations to bring the racing back next year. Deloitte estimated that, without international travel restrictions due to Covid-19, the economic benefit to Plymouth would have been closer to £10 million. Councillor Nick Kelly, the leader of the council, said: “A huge amount of effort went into securing and delivering the event. The weather was incredibly kind to us and allowed the city to showcase its fabulous waterfront. “I am determined to make Plymouth known for events such as SailGP and this administration will do everything we can to promote the Hoe to a world audience. We are in detailed negotiations with SailGP about hosting the event here again next year and I STuarT aBel stuart.abel@reachplc.com will update on this as soon as I can.” The SailGP on July 17-18 was one of a few large-scale events to survive the coronavirus restrictions over the past two summers. Australia triumphed over the seven other teams, with the global extravaganza then heading to Denmark. The teams have been racing in the south of France this weekend. The council said that another key benefit highlighted in the report was the number of visitors from outside Plymouth – 35% were from the South East and London. The council said that 89% of the tourists interviewed stated they would recommend Plymouth as a holiday destination and 80% were more likely to come back again to Britain’s Ocean City as a result of attending. Cllr Kelly added: “You did not need to know much about sailing to enjoy the thrill of these highspeed races and I am delighted that so many of our visitors had a brilliant experience here in Plymouth and are likely to come back again. “Hosting Sail- GP has always been about more than the event. It has been about showcasing Britain’s Ocean City to the world and it’s a perfect fit for our National Marine Park.” The council said that 6,270 people watched from the ticketed waterfront area on Plymouth Hoe, while more than 1,000 boats signed up to the ‘Bring your own Boat’ programme, to view from the water. Visitors came from ten countries, with Covid-19 restrictions clearly having an impact on travel. Deloitte conservatively estimates the economic benefit to Plymouth would have been closer to £10 million, were it not for the pan- demic. Global media coverage of the event was seen across 175 territories, with a dedicated television audience of 2.6 million. There were 1,800 online press articles and 297 television news segments featured the event in Plymouth. The event included science, technology and maths sessions for schoolchildren at Tinside Lido, free sailing experiences for young people and people with disabilities, and an ‘adopt-a-club’ scheme where each of the eight teams paired with a local Plymouth sailing club or organisation. The council said that strict Covid-19 risk assessments were undertaken and, despite large numbers attending the event, no rise in cases was recorded as a result. NEWS Motorbike crash victim named A MAN who died after a crash between a motorbike and a car last week has been named. Paul Gray, 61, from the St Ives area, died in the collision which happened just after 5.30pm on Tuesday, September 7. Mr Gray was riding a Suzuki GSXR motorcyle on Old Coach Road, near St Ives, when it collided with a Daewoo Matiz. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Police closed the road for nine hours while it was analysed by forensics teams. The people in the car were not injured. A Devon and Cornwall Police spokesperson said: “Officers from the Alliance Roads Policing Team are investigating the circumstances surrounding the collision and are appealing for witnesses. “They would also like to hear from any motorists who may have relevant dash cam footage. Please contact 101@ dc,police.uk or telephone 101, quoting the log number 0732 of 07/09/21.” Mr Gray was a popular marshal on the Martin Jennings Memorial Run due to take place this weekend. Organiser Dave Saunby wrote that he would be “sorely missed”. Locator beacons help save kayakers TWO kayakers were rescued by RNLI lifeboat crews after being swept out to sea off the Cornish coast. Coastguards were alerted on Saturday afternoon when the kayakers, a man and a woman, activated their personal locator emergency beacon. A member of the public who was standing on a cliff top also alerted coastguards after they noticed the two kayakers were in difficulty off Gwenapp Head, on the Penwith peninsula. Two lifeboats were then launched from Sennen Cove and the pair were found cold but otherwise unhurt. The kayakers were then taken to Porthcurno. Sennen Cove Lifeboat Station said: “Personal locator beacons are relatively cheap and save lives. If you regularly carry out any water activity please consider buying one.” JUST £5.49 ON 12 CRAFT WINES Plus 2 FREE wine glasses worth £18, & FREE delivery direct to your door!

WESTERN MORNING NEWS Monday, September 13, 2021 5 ADVERTISING FEATURE NEWS You’re better off with a Huge haul of cocaine seized off Plymouth > > Drugs found on the Jamaicanflagged yacht Kahu NCA/PA Wire Six men including a Briton are due to appear in court today after being arrested off the coast of Plymouth when authorities seized more than two tonnes of cocaine worth around £160 million. The National Crime Agency (NCA) said an operation involving its personnel as well as the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and Border Force arrested the British man from Stockton-on-Tees, County Durham, and five Nicaraguans aboard a Jamaicanflagged yacht 80 miles out to sea. Border Force Maritime Command’s 42-metre cutter Searcher and 19-metre coastal patrol vessel Alert had covertly identified and monitored luxury yacht Kahu’s movements. Kahu, which was sailing from the Caribbean, was intercepted and boarded by specialist Border Force and NCA officers in international waters north of Guernsey. The yacht was then escorted back to an undisclosed location on the UK mainland where a team carried out a search and discovered the enormous haul of Class A drugs. Six men have since been charged with drug trafficking offences and were to appear at Plymouth Magistrates’ Court today. They are: Andrew Cole, 32, from Stockton-on-Tees, County Durham, Billy Downs, 49, Denson White-Morales, 34, Edwin Taylor-Morgan, 40, Brynie Sjogreen, 38, and Ryan Taylor, 42. NCA deputy director Matt Horne Scott D’Arcy wmnnewsdesk@reachplc.com said of the cocaine seized that it could potentially have been sold on to communities across the UK “fuelling more crime and misery”. He added: “We continue to work with partners at home such as Border Force and those abroad such as the AFP to protect the public from the Class A drugs threat.” The NCA said the arrests demonstrate the strength of its international partnerships, working with the AFP which as part of the operation used evidence from their Operation Ironside, the country’s investigation into the AnOm encrypted comms platform. AFP assistant commissioner Lesa Gale, said: “Intelligence from Operation Ironside had enabled the AFP to assist international enforcement partners in disrupting an alleged sophisticated criminal network. “Operation Ironside has opened the door to unprecedented collaboration across law enforcement agencies around the globe. “This result highlights the importance of the AFP’s partnership with the NCA to combat offshore transnational organised crime that impacts both of our countries. “The AFP and NCA have a strong, historic relationship and both agencies recognise the significant threat to national security posed by transnational organised crime.” Tasty snacks make lunch easy for busy workers BRITONS have gone back to work and discovered they’re better off with a Mug Shot.

6 Monday, September 13, 2021 WESTERN MORNING NEWS NEWS County Covid deaths reach tragic milestone A total of 800 people have died in hospital with Covid-19 across Devon. NHS England confirmed on Friday that another seven patients died within 28 days of a positive coronavirus test. The latest deaths happened at the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital, Torbay Hospital and Derriford Hospital in Plymouth. Of the latest deaths, two happened at the RD&E on September 8 and one on September 9. The two deaths at Torbay Hospital happened on jamie hawkins jamie.hawkins@reachplc.com September 8 and 9 respectively. The two latest deaths at Derriford both happened on September 8. It means 800 people have died in Devon’s hospitals within 28 days of a positive coronavirus test since the start of the pandemic. It comes as Plymouth’s case rate has risen as of Friday. There are currently 455 cases per 100,000 population in the city, which is higher than the South West average of 380.3 and England’s average of 349.4. But it is lower than the previous Friday and outside the top 20 areas in England, with no other area in Devon inside the top 50. Plymouth City Council is urging anyone who has symptoms of coronavirus to get a PCR test and isolate immediately. They tweeted: “Our rate of coronavirus cases continues to increase, with over 455 cases per 100,000 population. If you have symptoms you must isolate immediately and get a PCR Test.” Meanwhile, the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital has confirmed it is operating under ‘red alert’ conditions as pressures on health services grow. OPEL 3, or red alert, means that the local health and social care system is experiencing “major pressures compromising patient flow and continues to increase”. It comes as health bosses in Devon and Cornwall warned of significant pressures as demand for services continues to rise in the same week that the South Western Ambulance Service declared a “major incident” following unprecedented demand – with last Monday being one of the busiest days in its history with calls every 25 seconds. Across the border in Cornwall, hospitals have suspended surgery due to continued pressures on healthcare services, enabling clinical teams to focus on care for people needing emergency treatment.

The Type 23 vessel, which was commissioned in 2001, is the second-youngest frigate in the Royal Navy, and spent three years at Babcock International’s frigate sheds for refitting. Now that work has been completed, the ship, re-equipped with a host of cutting-edge technology, is due to return to frontline operations. Her rededication ceremony took place last Thursday. “In her 20 years of service she has steamed nearly half a million miles, and delivered world-class anti-submarine warfare operations, alongside many of our key partners and allies,” said Commander Surface Flotilla, Cdre Tim Neild. HMS Portland completed her most recent deployment, to the north and south Atlantic, in 2017, before being sent off for refurbishment the following year. The overhaul saw the vessel’s electric propulsion motors being removed, rewired and replaced. The warship also has a new Sea Ceptor missile system, replacing her old Sea Wolf system. Her IT systems and machinery have been updated, while new surveillance and navigational radars have been installed. HMS Portland has also been equipped with the 2150 hull-mounted sonar, new to the Royal Navy. “We wish HMS Portland and its crew all the best and look forward to continuing to support them as the vessel re-joins the fleet and prepares for operational tasking,” said Gary Simpson, managing director of Babcock’s Marine Systems division. A series of trials have taken place to test the ship’s equipment and company, including a successful test firing of the new Sea Captor missile system. HMS Portland is being prepared for operational sea training next month, when her crew will be put through its paces ahead of the frigate’s return to naval operations later in the year.

WESTERN MORNING NEWS Monday, September 13, 2021 7 NEWS Honour Kabul mission troops with medal – MP Charity staff make it out of Afghanistan Alex Green alex.green@reachplc.com PLYMoUTH MP Luke Pollard has called on the government to recognise the service personnel who took part in the evacuation of Afghanistan with service medals. More than 1,000 UK personnel took part in operation Pitting, which airlifted 15,000 people fleeing oppression and persecution to safety as the country fell to the Taliban. The mission was the largest of its kind since the Second World War and Labour has said that this ‘astonishing feat’ deserves formal recognition. Mr Pollard and his team were working with over 100 people with a connection to Plymouth still in Afghanistan, trying to get them to safety. Luke Pollard, Plymouth Sutton and Devonport MP, and Labour’s Shadow Armed Forces Minister Stephen Morgan have written to the Defence Secretary to urge him to honour service personnel with medals. Under existing criteria, troops would not receive medals as the mission did not meet the 30-days continuous service for which they are awarded. Labour has dismissed this as an ‘arbitrary timeframe’ and said that the criteria for medallic recognition needed to shift to reflect the changing nature of conflicts that our armed forces are involved in. Luke Pollard MP said: “The government has made a mess of the situation in Afghanistan, no one can deny that the bravery, compassion and integrity of our armed forces displayed during their dangerous mission deserves formal recognition. “Ministers should swiftly move to recognise the efforts of our service personnel.” It comes as a British soldier involved in the evacuation of civilians from Afghanistan has described scenes of chaos as people desperately tried to flee the country. Private Jake Howarth, of 2nd Battalion, The Yorkshire Regiment, recalled hearing the sound of gunshots and being surrounded by barbed wire as he touched down at Kabul airport to help the UK evacuation effort following the Taliban takeover. There was quite a fear factor when we got there and obviously it was dark at night so nobody knew what was going on,” he said. He added: “You had barbed wire in a square and loads of the civilians, the population in there, just waiting to get on a flight. “It looked like it wasn’t organised at all. When we were walking through all you could hear was constant gunshots at that time. “If you looked at people’s faces, we were all quite shocked. We did not know what was happening. We did not know if it was Taliban or if it was Coalition forces firing their rounds off.” Private Howarth said the scenes left him feeling “quite sad”, adding: “I have never seen people jumping over fences because they are that desperate to get away. “There were children who were injured, scared and did not know what was going on. “It is quite sad to say when you get brought up in a completely different country, you get brought up differently, you think about the children who come into this world and that is the first thing they are seeing.” FoRMeR Royal Marine Pen Farthing, who runs Devon-based animal rescue charity Nowzad, has said he is “so bloody happy” that his staff who worked at an animal shelter in Kabul have made it out of Taliban-led Afghanistan. Paul “Pen” Farthing (pictured), who was forced to leave his Afghan staff behind as he flew out with rescue dogs and cats amid chaotic scenes in Kabul last month, described it as “absolutely mindblowing” that they arrived in Pakistan on Saturday. He tweeted that the Nowzad staff are “now safely in Islamabad and in the care of the British High Commission! I am so bloody happy right now!”. He said: “This is absolutely mind-blowing. It has still not really sunk in.” The Afghan staff were not able to leave during the hurried mass evacuation as foreign troops withdrew from the nation some two decades after US forces removed the militants from power in 2001. Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab tweeted: “Pleased that Nowzad’s Afghan staff, who were called for evacuation, successfully crossed the border into Pakistan.” Free £1 TickeT Available at participating retailers Your cHance to win £100k If you’re feeling lucky, take a chance to be in with an opportunity to win big with this amazing offer!

8 Monday, September 13, 2021 WESTERN MORNING NEWS NEWS Jailed honorary alderman stripped of title A disgraced former East Devon councillor and Exmouth mayor has lost his honorary alderman status after he was jailed for sexually assaulting two teenage boys. East Devon District Council convened an extraordinary meeting to remove the honour following John Humphreys’ conviction at Exeter Crown Court last month where he was sentenced to 21 years in prison. Humphreys, who had been a Conservative councillor for 12 years and mayor of Exmouth between 2012 and 2014, had been awarded the alderman title in recognition of his services to the community in 2019. But following his conviction, councillors agreed that he was not a fit person to hold the title, and the unanimous decision to strip the honour is the first time the title has been withdrawn since the council was formed almost 50 years ago. Humphreys groomed his first victim when the child was aged about 13, culminating in a violent sexual attack on Woodbury Common. The former councillor went on to abuse a second boy, aged 15, who had met Humphreys while on a work experience placement. Speaking at the extraordinary meeting last Tuesday, council leader Cllr Paul Arnott backed calls from Cllr Jessica Bailey for an investigation into the council’s procedures and practices in order to prevent any similar situation happening again. Cllr David Key added that Humphreys had “made a disgrace” of the alderman award and restated recent calls from the Conservative group at EDDC to bring in disclosure and barring (DBS) checks for all councillors. Dashcams handed out to catch the road hogs > > A near miss captured on a dashboard camera and, below, overtaking on the grass verge State-of-the-art dashcams are to be handed out free to businesses and organisations in Devon and Cornwall to help police catch road safety law breakers. Organisations including South West Water, Live West and the RNLI have already signed up to the scheme, which has been jointly funded by National Highways and the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly – both of which are members of the Vision Zero South West Partnership. Footage captured on the dashcams will be used to assist Devon and Cornwall Police’s Operation Snap, a scheme which allows members of the public to upload video footage of road traffic collisions as well as illegal or dangerous driving. Since the start of Op Snap in Devon and Cornwall in 2019, more than 1,300 dangerous drivers have been prosecuted – and the number of submissions to Op Snap has increased dramatically recently. In the first six months of 2021, Devon and Cornwall Police received 779 submissions through Op Snap – of which 408 cases saw notices of intended prosecutions issued and 144 cases WMN REPORTER wmnnewsdesk@reachplc.com resulted in an official police warning. Dasham footage highlights dangerous overtaking, close passes near cyclists, undertaking on the M5 and even one car overtaking on a grass verge. The idea of the dashcam project is to ensure there are more eyes on the road to enforce the message that dangerous or illegal driving will not be tolerated in Devon and Cornwall. Alison Hernandez, Police and Crime Commissioner for Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, is also the National Road Safety Lead for the APCC and chairman of the Vision Zero South West board. She said: “This is a fantastic project that I hope will have a significant impact on road safety in Devon and Cornwall. “We have specifically chosen the organisations involved to receive these cameras as they operate vehicles which regularly travel on some of the most problematic roads across the South West. This gives us 170 extra pairs of eyes on our roads to capture dangerous drivers and take action against them.”

10 Monday, September 13, 2021 WESTERN MORNING NEWS UK&WORLD NEWS Serving of legal papers on Duke is questioned Lawyers for the woman suing the Duke of York over sexual assault allegations have claimed to have served legal papers on him, according to a document filed in a New York court.

The filing says this is “consistent with the provisions for service upon an individual defendant, under Section 6 of the Civil Procedure Rules, as required by the Supreme Court of Judicature in England & Wales”. Blackfords, who said they represent the duke “in certain UK matters”, raised questions in an email on September 6 about how the papers were served. In a document, they wrote: “We reiterate that our client reserves all his rights, including to contest the jurisdiction of the US courts (including on the basis of potentially defective service).” They added Ms Guiffre’s claim may not be viable, citing a 2009 release in a separate court case in Florida. Representatives for Ms Giuffre, however, stated in a court document that the assertion regarding the 2009 release was an “erroneous suggestion” by Blackfords.

Plans to introduce vaccine passports in England for nightclubs and other crowded venues have been scrapped in the latest of the Government’s coronavirus U-turns. Health Secretary Sajid Javid confirmed the proposals “will not be going ahead” on Sunday, just days after ministers had defended the policy to sceptical MPs. Boris Johnson had previously announced that members of the public would be required to show proof they have had two doses of a Covid-19 vaccine in order to gain entry to clubs and other large-scale events in England. But following a backlash from Tory MPs, the Health Secretary said the idea had been shelved. He told the BBC’s The Andrew Marr Show: “I’ve never liked the idea of saying to people you must show your papers or something to do what is just an everyday activity, but we were right to properly look at it. “We’ve looked at it properly and whilst we should keep it in reserve as a potential option, I’m pleased to say that we will not be going Lib Dem party membership slumps by quarter Geraldine Scott Press Association ahead with plans for vaccine passports.” The announcement came shortly after the minister had appeared on Sky News and told host Trevor Phillips a final decision had yet to be made. He said: “We haven’t made a final decision as a Government.” Labour’s deputy leader said the rapid change showed that “the Government’s approach to Covid passports has been shambolic from the start”. Angela Rayner said: “There has never been any clarity from ministers about what vaccine passports were supposed to achieve, how they would work and what was expected from businesses and workers. “Days ago, the vaccine minister stood before Parliament to confirm the introduction of Covid passports and stress their importance, now they’ve been scrapped. “This is the culmination of a summer of chaos from ministers and they urgently need to get a grip Membership of the Liberal Democrats has collapsed by more than a quarter, internal party documents show, with young members blaming the party’s strong opposition against the Government’s proposed planning reforms. Party membership is down 27% on this time last year, a document prepared ahead of the Lib Dem annual conference later this month and seen by the PA news agency showed. And some members said the fall was due, in part, to the party vocally opposing now-ditched planning reforms during the by-election in Chesham and Amersham in June. Leaflets from the Lib Dems at the time attacked the policy and included quotes from prominent Tories such as former prime minister Theresa May and former Tory leader Sir Iain Duncan Smith criticising the reforms. In a shock result, Lib Dem Sarah Green ended up overturning a 16,000-plus Conservative majority to win by 8,028 votes, a swing of 25%. But activists said a focus on before winter.” But Mr Javid told Times Radio the decision was not a “wobble” based on fears that MPs may not have backed the Government. He said: “It’s not a wobble. We said we were going to look at this and look at it carefully and we set out what those plans were and the sectors that we were looking at. “But I think everyone agrees if you went ahead with something like vaccine passports, they are a huge intrusion into people’s lives so you’ve got to be really, really certain, That’s what you want to do. We have looked at it and whilst we keep it in reserve, I’m pleased to say that we will not be going ahead.” The hospitality sector welcomed the news. Michael Kill, chief executive of the Night Time Industries Association (NTIA), said: “We hope that businesses will now be able to plan for the future with some degree of certainty.” While Sacha Lord, night time economy adviser for Greater Manchester, said the idea had been “untenable and illogical”. “nimby-ism” – an acronym for “not in my back yard” that has come to symbolise opposition to development – was causing young members to “become more and more dejected by the day”. Reports have suggested the Government’s reforms, which included plans to remove the public’s right to object to planning applications through creating zonal areas, will be watered down. Lib Dem leader Sir Ed Davey is preparing to mount an offensive targeting “blue wall” Tory seats.

And Labour set out more detail on Sunday for their alternative proposals to reform the social care system. The shadow health secretary told broadcasters on Sunday the party would implement a “reform programme” for social care, making a “national framework” to expand eligibility so that more people access care in their home, which the party said could generate £2.5 billion in savings. Jonathan Ashworth also said Labour would invest more in staff salaries and training, give carers “proper” respite support, and improve conditions for those with disabilities. Speaking on Trevor Phillips On Sunday on Sky News, he said: “If you expand eligibility with a national framework... which is what we want to see, more people will access care in their home, and will not need to Ben Hatton and Geraldine Scott go into a care home or be delayed in hospital in a bed not able to get care out in the community.” He said the IPPR (Institute for Public Policy Research) has suggested such a move would save £2.5 billion, which Mr Ashworth said Labour would “reallocate to the frontline of social care”. He said the way to raise standards is “investing in staff”. “We will pay the staff a real living wage” he said, and “get rid of these zero hours contracts that a quarter of the staff are on and we will invest in their training”. He also criticised the care cost cap, saying: “The cap, yes, it limits the liabilities that some people will pay out, but only benefits one in seven people. “What about the other six in seven who see no benefit?” Mr Ashworth said the planned health and social care levy “won’t deliver the healthcare that is needed”, and when asked on the BBC’s The Andrew Marr Show if Labour would scrap it, he described it as “a punishing unfair tax rise on working people”. Asked again if he would scrap the levy, Mr Ashworth said: “It’s not actually come in yet. There’s a vote on Tuesday. And there’s still an opportunity for Tory MPs to vote it down.” Mr Ashworth also warned the Government’s plans could lead to social care providers going bust. He told Sky News: “Because of the way the financing works, council tax will go up or care homes will go bust. “And there will still be thousands upon thousands of people in this country who don’t get access to the social care they need.” Labour said on Sunday that a Government proposal for those who selffund their care to be able to pay at the same rate as local authorities could “push the entire care sector off a cliff”. Defending tax rises to pay for health and social care, the Health Secretary said it would not have been right to “doggedly” stick to Conservative manifesto promises in the light of the “unprecedented strain” on the health service caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

12 Monday, September 13, 2021 WESTERN MORNING NEWS UK&WORLD NEWS World BULLETINS Military called in to quell wildfire SOLDIERS have been deployed to tackle a major wildfire that has been burning in south-east Spain for four days. The blaze in Malaga province has destroyed nearly 17,300 acres of forest and prompted fresh evacuations, bringing the total number of residents displaced to around 2,500. Plan Infoca, the Andalusia region’s agency in charge of firefighting efforts, said yesterday was a “key day” for bringing the blaze under control. Nearly 1,500 residents were evacuated from the towns of Jubrique, Genalguacil and four other villages yesterday. That followed the evacuation of more than 1,000 people from areas around the resort town of Estepona before the weekend. An emergency brigade travelled from the military base at Moron, in southern Spain, to join more than 300 firefighters and 41 water-dropping aircraft battling the flames. The reinforcement was welcomed, but firefighters like Rafael Fanega, who said the blaze remained “out of control”, called for more boots on the ground to battle the flames. “I don’t see enough deployed personnel,” he told the Associated Press, speaking in Jubrique after it was evacuated. Some progress was seen on Saturday, when authorities said better weather conditions had helped them. Hidalgo, Le Pen launch quests Two politicians have formally declared their intentions to seek to become France’s first woman president in next year’s election. National Rally’s Marine Le Pen and Paris’s socialist mayor, Anne Hidalgo, officially launched their campaigns yesterday. Ms Hidalgo, 62, is the favourite to win the Socialist Party nomination. Ms Le Pen, the 53-year-old leader of France’s far-right party, started her campaign to challenge President Emmanuel Macron with a pledge to defend French “liberty”. Fatalities in Pakistan rains Torrential monsoon rains and mudslides have hit areas in north-west Pakistan, destroying homes and killing at least 17 people, police said yesterday. A police spokesman said 11 bodies were recovered from the debris of mud and brick houses, after three adjacent homes were completely swept away yesterday in a remote village in Tor Ghar district, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, while authorities in the city of Abbottabad said a mudslide in the suburbs killed a couple and their child. FBI reveals Saudi links to two 9/11 attackers The Federal Bureau of Investigation has released a newly declassified document relating to logistical support given to two of the Saudi hijackers in the run-up to the September 11 terrorist attacks in the United States. The document details contacts the hijackers had with Saudi associates in the US but does not provide proof that senior Saudi government officials were complicit in the plot. Released on the 20th anniversary of the attacks, the document is the first investigative record to be disclosed since US President Joe Biden ordered a declassification review of materials that for years have remained out of public view. The document is a summary of an FBI interview undertaken in 2015 with a man who had frequent contact with Saudi nationals in the US who supported the first hijackers to arrive in the country before the attacks. Eric Tucker Associated Press Last week, Mr Biden ordered the Justice Department and other agencies to conduct a declassification review and release what documents they could over the next six months. He had encountered pressure from victims’ families, who have long sought the records as they pursue a lawsuit in New York alleging that Saudi government officials supported the hijackers. The Saudi government has long denied any involvement in the attacks. The heavily redacted document was disclosed on Saturday night, hours after Mr Biden attended September 11 memorial events in New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Victims’ relatives had earlier objected to Mr Biden’s presence at ceremonial events as long as the documents remained classified. > > A woman places flowers on the 9/11 Memorial in New York City on Saturday morning, before a ceremony at the National September 11 Memorial and Museum commemorating the 20th anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in the United States city Mike Segar/Getty Images The Saudi Embassy in Washington said it supported the full declassification of all records as a way to “end the baseless allegations against the kingdom once and for all”. The embassy added that any allegation that Saudi Arabia was complicit was “categorically false”. Victims’ relatives welcomed the document’s release as a significant step in their effort to connect the attacks to Saudi Arabia. Brett Eagleson, whose father Bruce was killed in the World Trade Center, said the release of the FBI material “accelerates our pursuit of truth and justice”. Jim Kreindler, a lawyer for the victims’ relatives, said in a statement that “the findings and conclusions in this FBI investigation validate the arguments we have made in the litigation regarding the Saudi government’s responsibility for the 9/11 attacks”. Mr Kreindler added: “This document, together with the public evidence gathered to date, provides a blueprint for how it [Al-Qaeda] operated inside the US with the active, knowing support of the Saudi government.” There has been speculation about official involvement in the September 11 attacks since shortly after they happened, when it was revealed that 15 of the 19 attackers were Saudis. Osama bin Laden, the leader of Al- Qaeda at the time, was from a prominent family in the kingdom. The US investigated some Saudi diplomats and others with Saudi government ties who knew the hijackers after they arrived in America, according to documents that have already been declassified, but the 9/11 Commission report in 2004 found “no evidence that the Saudi government as an institution or senior Saudi officials individually funded” the attacks. Al-Qaeda leader rumoured to be dead appears in ‘new’ video Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri has appeared in a video marking the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, months after rumours spread that he was dead. The SITE Intelligence Group that monitors jihadist websites said the video was released on Saturday. In it, al-Zawahri said that “Jerusalem will never be judaised” and praised Al- Qaeda attacks, including one that targeted Russian troops in Syria in January. Maryland-based SITE said al- Zawahri also noted the US military’s withdrawal from Afghanistan, after 20 years of war. It added that his comments do not necessarily indicate a recent recording, as the withdrawal agreement with the Taliban was signed in February, 2020. Al- Zawahri made no mention of the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan and its capital, Kabul, last month, SITE added, but he did mention a January 1 attack that targeted Russian troops on the edge of the Syrian city of Raqqa. Rumours have spread since late 2020 that al-Zawahri had died from illness. “He could still be dead, though, if so, it would have been at some point in or after January 2021,” Rita Katz, SITE’s director, wrote on social media. Al-Zawahri, an Egyptian, became the leader of Al-Qaeda following the 2011 killing of Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan, by US special forces.

WESTERN MORNING NEWS Monday, September 13, 2021 13 Digging for victory in the battle to help environment Morning News Country Gardeners are being asked by the RHS to do their bit to tackle biodiversity loss and climate change, writes Emily Beament A climate campaign to mobilise the biggest gardening army since ‘Dig for Victory’ in the Second World War has been launched by the Royal Horticultural Society. The charity aims to help the UK’s 30 million gardeners take action in their own backyard to cut greenhouse gas emissions and boost wildlife in efforts to help tackle the climate and nature crises. Gardeners are being encouraged to take planet-friendly actions such as plant trees, use rainwater to water plants, go peat-free, plant blooms for pollinators and pull up a paving slab to create more space for growing perennials. The RHS said its research shows that if every gardener planted a medium-sized tree and nurtured it to maturity, it would store the carbon equivalent of driving 11 million times round the planet. And if all green-fingered householders made an average of 190kg of compost a year – the amount that gardeners who do compost make on average – it would save the equivalent carbon to heating half a million homes, compared to the manufacture and transport of shop-bought compost, the RHS said. But YouGov polling for the charity found less than a fifth (19%) of UK gardeners say they have specifically adopted sustainable gardening principles such as saving water, making their own compost or reducing fossil fuels. Separate research found nearly 40% of gardeners still use garden tools such as lawnmowers that are powered by fossil fuels. And while pledges for the RHS’s water saving mains2rains campaign will save 6.6 million litres, or 82,385 baths of tap water, the charity says there is more to be done. It is developing a planet-friendly sustainability calculator, an onlinetool to empower gardeners to make the best sustainable plant and gardening choices. And it has come up with a list of 10 achievable actions gardeners can take to help nature and the climate. The RHS is also calling for Government support for research and development in horticultural science, as well as financially supporting community gardens in schools, The actions of every one of our nation’s 30 million gardeners can create positive change sue biggs, rhs NHS trusts and public spaces to help gardening make a difference. The RHS is launching the planetfriendly gardening campaign as part of its own sustainability strategy, which includes measures to be climate positive – capturing more emissions than it puts out – by 2030. It also aims to eliminate all single use plastic, ensure all packaging is 100% reusable, recyclable or compostable, and be water neutral at RHS gardens, shows and sites by 2030. RHS director general Sue Biggs said: “The RHS is committed to using its own community outreach work to help Britain’s 30 million gardeners make a positive contribution towards the climate and biodiversity crisis. But we can’t harness this potential alone. If we are to mobilise the biggest gardening army across the nation since Dig for Victory we need government support for planet-friendly gardens. This includes funding all research and development in horticultural science as well as financially supporting community gardens in schools, NHS Trusts and public spaces.” RHS director of science and collections, Professor Alistair Griffiths, added: “Collectively, the actions of each and every one of our nation’s 30 million gardeners can create positive change and help us adapt to and mitigate against the climate and biodiversity crisis.” The 10 actions gardeners can take to tackle climate change and nature loss are: ■ ■ Plant a tree in your community, school, workplace or garden to draw carbon out of the air. ■ ■ Pledge to switch from mains to rainwater for watering the garden. ■ ■ Go peat free to protect precious peatland habitats which store carbon, provide homes for nature and reduce flood risk. ■ ■ Make your own compost to save carbon. ■ ■ Pull up a paving slab and grow perennial plants such as grass, > > Gardeners are being urged to adopt practices which reduce carbon and boost wildlife Chris Ison shrubs or trees to maturity to suck in carbon from the air. ■ ■ Put in plants for pollinators, to help slow and reverse declines in bees, butterflies, moths, hoverflies and other insects. ■ ■ Grow your own bunch of flowers, as growing or buying UK-grown cut flowers can save carbon compared to buying imported bunches. ■ ■ Electrify your garden, so you are using electric powered gardening tools, not ones run on fossil fuels. ■ ■ Help map UK garden plant biodiversity by adding your garden plants to RHS My Garden online to help the RHS conserve this important biodiversity. ■ ■ Eat more home-grown, UK, local and seasonal fruit and vegetables. charlie elder charles.elder@reachplc.com there is not a lot of bird song at this time of year – the occasional twitterings of swallows and robins, or the tired late-summer cooing of collard doves and woodpigeons among a sparse selection. Generally our avian vocalists are saving their best for the breeding season next spring. However, they do still keep in contact with each another with calls – those simple peeps and cheeps and chirps that are far less easy to identify. But one grating screech always Sound of the suburbs – high-pitched screeching from the treetops Country Notebook grabs the attention. I hear it every time I visit London, as I did over the weekend, and it can now be heard in parts of the Westcountry: the high-pitched call of ringnecked parakeets. I was wandering around Blackheath, a lovely leafy suburb in the south east of the capital, and the screeches alerted me to the presence of these long-established free-roaming birds, flying between the trees dotted beside the open area of grassland. It is believed fears over the disease psittacosis, which can be caught from parrots, originally led to numbers being released in around London, and despite hailing from Asia these hardy birds have thrived and spread, with the population now estimated at tens of thousands. Once you hear its screech you can’t un-hear it, and you realise just how common these invaders are in the South East – with flocks also in Plymouth and sightings in Exeter and elsewhere in the Westcountry. People around me seemed oblivious to the noise. Over the decades the calls of parakeets have perhaps become as familiar a part of the suburban soundscape as that of the traffic and roaring planes. I imagine if you told a passerby that a wild, bright green kind of parrot was sat on a branch above them they might be amazed. Or completely indifferent.

16 Monday, September 13, 2021 WESTERN MORNING NEWS WMN Judi Spiers on Monday Read Judi’s column every week in the Western Morning News Throbbing thumb was no laughing matter I was in two minds as to whether to write about this particular subject today but after reading a story in the national papers which was spookily similar to something I had experienced, I thought perhaps I should. So cast your minds back to July when the rabbit wrote my column making fun of the fact that I had a Tom ’n’ Jerry thumb after an incident in the garden. I then wrote a jokey piece about how difficult it was to do the simplest tasks without using a thumb. The truth of the matter is that it wasn’t funny. Then a story appeared in the national papers about a woman who scratched herself on a bramble… and nearly lost her hand. Well, bearing in mind it’s blackberry season and that time of year when, if you’re keen on your garden, you are out there with secateurs snipping, cutting back, dead heading and tying up overblown bushes I thought it was a good idea go into a bit more detail. To recap I thought I had a thorn in my thumb and rooted around with an unsterilised needle. This led to a trip to a walk-in centre where I was told it wasn’t poisonous. The next day I could not make a fist and my wrist hurt. I Googled thinking it might be repetitive strain (which I learned was dangerous untreated! Who knew?) I called the doctor went straight in to see him and he confirmed it was poisonous and put me on antibiotics and painkillers. After two days I was still in a lot of pain – the swelling was worse and I could see a thin red line tracking up my arm. I called the doctor who told me to come in straight away… and to bring an overnight bag as he was sending me to hospital! I was seen immediately and told I could be admitted and put on intravenous drugs or go home with double the dose of antibiotics. I plumped for home and spent 4 days in bed on 8 paracetamol, 6 Ibuprofen and strong antibiotics, waking through the night to take them all. I rattled! After two weeks on antibiotics I went back to hospital where I was told it could take up to a year to get full mobility in my hand! Six weeks later I can use it but have random shout out moments of shooting pains. I consider myself lucky as the woman in the paper had merely scratched herself on a bramble and took herself to hospital where she underwent emergency surgery to save her hand – a fungal infection got into her blood. The fungus is typically found in soil on rose bushes, twigs and decaying vegetation and can cause sporotrichosis, also known as rose gardeners disease, and in rare cases can lead to sepsis. As we know sepsis, or blood poisoning, is a potentially lifethreatening condition that can lead to organ failure and death, affecting 245,000 people a year in the UK. Also a girlfriend who was a senior ICU nurse at Papworth told me she had nursed two women in the past who had rose thorns in their fingers. They had tetanus and were put on ventilators. I am having my booster shots this week. I am also now using gloves for every little job in the garden, which I have never done before always maintaining I preferred to feel the soil with my hands. And I will never again use an un-sterilised needle! So a cautionary tale …back to the light hearted stuff next week. > > Rose bushes are a thing of beauty – but this one resulted in a visit to hospital and two weeks on antibiotics for Judi Write: Reach PLC, Princess Court, Plymouth, PL1 2EX @WMNNews westernmorningnews Email: wmnletters@westernmorningnews.co.uk Awards a chance to applaud businesses following a tough year throughout the pandemic businesses in the Westcountry have ensured this corner of the country has kept going strong. Firms faced with the challenges of lengthy lockdowns and ever-changing restrictions, the need to protect staff and customers, and the trials of staying afloat as familiar sources of revenue dried up, have shown extraordinary resilience. From retailers adapting overnight to provide more online and delivery services to office-based employers ensuring their workforce could operate from home, Westcountry businesses have done themselves, and this region, proud. And now the Westcountry is able to celebrate the best our business community has to offer, with the upcoming Western Morning News Business Awards 2021, due to be held at the Crown Plaza in Plymouth later this year. It is a chance to not only applaud the efforts of a diverse range of firms, from entrepreneurial start-ups to larger companies, but also for businesses to reunite – networking having been one of the casualties of the pandemic. Last year the popular awards were postponed, and the event is now back with a bang. Reach Plc – parent company of the Western Morning News and Business Live – decided that now, more than ever, it is important to honour the brightest and best companies and entrepreneurs in Devon and Cornwall. After whittling down an impressive range of entries across an extended spread of categories, the finalists have now been chosen and are listed on Page 4. A total of 11 awards will be handed out to those who have broken barriers, shown remarkable resilience and supported our communities with their ingenuity. During what has been the toughest year many businesses will have faced, the awards are a chance to share success stories, to shine a spotlight on the firms and individuals that make the region’s economy tick as it recovers from a year of Covid-19 disruption. As Jess Bolt, marketing manager at Go South West, one of the category sponsors, said when the awards opened for entries: “The awards are a great way to showcase the amazing businesses across the South West... It’s great to see events taking place again as the pandemic meant that so many events had to be cancelled.” And Connie Dixon, regional partnership director for the South West at sponsors Openreach, added: “The WMN Business Awards are the highlight of the South West business calendar.” The glittering black-tie ceremony will be held in December, and should be an event to savour. As William Telford, Business Live’s South West business reporter, said: “The Western Morning Business Awards are a celebration of excellence and achievement in the region. They are needed more than ever as the South West economy makes a strong recovery from the problems posed by the Covid pandemic.” Our businesses, tested to the limit, have already demonstrated they share a winning formula. The awards allow us all to celebrate that fact together. Congratulations to all our finalists.

WESTERN MORNING NEWS Monday, September 13, 2021 17 WMN Time to respect our borders – and nurses It is not Boris Johnson, but Nicola Sturgeon who wants to break away from Britain, and she has been campaigning for this for years. This is in spite of getting very generous allowances from the UK Government, which allows Scottish people to get free further education, free retirement home places for pensioners as well as other perks, which is all ‘thanks’ to the Barnett Formula, none of which we get in England. All of which she should lose if Scotland goes independent. I agree wholeheartedly that not just our police officers but our nurses should get a proper pay rise this autumn. It is a disgrace that they have not had one by now. I also agree with Mike Jackman, who said the public won’t stand seeing all these illegal, mainly young, men landing on our shores over the past few days. It makes me so angry, it is the French government’s responsibility, not ours, and they must realise this. We are a small and overcrowded country, unlike France. I hope Home Secretary Priti Patel means what she says and withdraws any money she so hastily promised to give the French and give them a time limit, such as by end of this month. They are encouraging these people to come over here and we just can’t afford to keep on being so generous to other countries. It has to stop now. We heard on the radio that our fishermen have seen French boats escorting illegal immigrant boats into our waters. These illegal immigrants must be returned to French shores immediately and not be allowed to land on our shores. It might sound cruel but, in the long run, it should stop the greedy traffickers who are only interested in getting paid and don’t care about the welfare of these people. After all these years, why haven’t the French police managed to catch and punish the people smugglers? It makes one wonder if the French authorities are more than happy to let the whole situation carry on so they can get rid of their responsibilities on to us. They know we are a soft touch. We have enough past and present problems of our own which need to be sorted out first. And why are the media and newspapers all so against Boris, writing that: “PM breaks pledge with 1.25% NI hike”? It is a well-known fact, whether we like it or not, that he hadn’t much choice, after the cost of the pandemic, but that seems to have been conveniently forgotten by Labour and others. Whatever was suggested, he would have been criticised. I don’t expect he wanted to break his promise, and all governments and local governments over the years have wasted so much of taxpayers’ money and are still doing so. Another point – the reason Britain hasn’t got a TB vaccination for cattle is that the EU said they would refuse to recognise it. Now we are out, it could be a different matter. Helen Capel Winscombe, Somerset Churchill’s legacy should be preserved The more things change, the more they stay the same. Letters powered by What do you think? Winston Churchill helped fight the rise of fascism and Nazism, now he has been cancelled by his own charity by the rise of wokeism. So much for charity beginning at home. Not much thanks for a man who saved us from ending up under the Nazi jackboot (I bet they would try appeasement). Mind you, it would have been interesting to see them try with Hitler, if he had won... This unjust cruel way of enforcing power has now gone beyond a joke. I thought the woke fraternity was out to right injustice. Why replace it with another unjust act? Mrs T Newman Gloucester Bristol commuters could take to water A contentious proposal to improve traffic is for the construction of an underground rail system. This is obviously an expensive undertaking. Lisbon, with a population of 100,000 more people than Bristol, has a very good underground system. However, Bristol does have a facility that is under-used as both as a recreational asset and a potential transport artery. It has the River Avon. In Amsterdam, Copenhagen Stockholm, the rivers and waterways form part of the transport system. Currently, our river is affected by tides. This could be overcome by constructing tidal barriers at seven locks. It is suggested that a water connection to the car park at Brislington be constructed, or a new multi-storey car park constructed adjacent to the river. Unfortunately, due to restrictions on non-essential travel and an emphasis on staff working from home, the office is closed and we are currently unable to receive letters by post. Please use the email address wmnletters@westernmorningnews.co.uk Does Winston Churchill’s legacy need to be queried? Join the debate by emailing wmnletters@westernmorningnews.co.uk and including your name and address River buses could then operate from the Brislington area to the city centre and near Cabot Circus, with pick-up points along the route. Care would have to be taken to prevent the river banks from becoming mooring spots for small river craft. Boulevards could form part of the scheme, with pedestrian walkways one side of the river and cycleways the other side. The whole could form part of urban enhancement. It could also create potentially desirable residential development. Brian King Trowbridge, Wiltshire Diabetes sufferers can be helped For many people living with diabetes, hypos are a part of life. But they can be scary and dangerous, and can lead to blurred vision, confusion, seizures and, in severe cases, unconsciousness and coma. So, to mark Hypo Awareness Week (September 13-19, 2021), Diabetes UK want to shine a spotlight on what hypos are and how to treat them. Hypos (short for hypoglycaemia) can affect people with type one diabetes, as well as many with type one diabetes who use insulin or certain other diabetes medications. A hypo is when the blood sugars drop too low. It can be dangerous if not treated immediately, as it means the brain does not have enough energy to work properly. It can happen for various reasons, including taking too much insulin, missing a meal or miscalculating carbs. > > Winston Churchill MP Daily Mirror Hypos must be treated quickly with fast-acting sugar, so that blood sugar levels rise again. Good hypo treatments include sugary drinks (not diet versions), fruit juice, glucose tablets or gel or sweets like jelly babies. If someone tells you they have diabetes and are having a hypo, you can help them to find or get a sugary drink or some sweets, but if they become unconscious call an ambulance. If you have diabetes and you are experiencing frequent hypos, speak to your healthcare team who can support you to make changes to your medication or insulin doses. Everyone has different hypo symptoms, but the most common are feeling shaky; feeling disorientated; sweating; being anxious or irritable; going pale; palpitations and a fast pulse; lips feeling tingly; blurred vision; feeling hungry; feeling tearful; tiredness; having a headache; or lack of concentration.

Not only do they dislike the people of England, it often borders on hate and discrimination towards the English people and the people of England. @WMNNews westernmorningnews Their benefits – free prescriptions, free university fees, free school meals – are being paid for by England’s taxpayers whilst receiving none of these benefits. I say end the Barnett Formula and the hated Union. Set England free! This would be the best for all English people in the long run, financially and culturally. So, come on, let’s end this ‘bad marriage’ – contact your MP and call for a English only referendum on the Union. Grahame Cove Exeter Independence would cost the Scots With reference to your question regarding Scottish independence, it would appear that Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP are frantically trying to brainwash the Scottish people into accepting another independence vote without explaining or even being truthful about the consequences of breaking away from the rest of the UK. It would seem that the SNP think they can happily break away and then join the EU, which will be waiting with open arms to welcome them, immediately start to let them use the Euro, and increase the generous subsidies that they already receive from Westminster. This might not be the case, as it has been reported that Scotland does not currently meet the specifications required by the EU for joining and the EU may be hesitant about letting in yet another country which will be a recipient of, rather than a beneficiary to, their finances. There may also be cases of having to join in the queue behind other countries who are hoping to join the EU, leaving Scotland to fend for itself without the support it gets from Westminster. There are, of course, many other things for the Scottish people to consider – if it is ever put forward to them – should they become independent. One of these is finance, particularly if the use of the pound will not be supported by the Bank of England; also the Barnett Formula, which currently benefits the Scottish people to the tune of almost £2,000 per person more than those in England, would be withdrawn. The second would be the effect on the economy by not only the withdrawal of our nuclear ,submarines and the closure of the base at Faslane but almost certainly the total withdrawal of all our armed forces, as Scotland would be in effect a foreign country after independence. The third is the possibility of a ‘hard border’ between the two countries, as it is unlikely (we hope!) that any British government will make the same mistakes as they did over Northern Ireland, which would make it very difficult for trade and would undoubtedly be more harmful to Scotland than the remainder of the UK. Hopefully, should there ever be another referendum, the other parties in the Scottish government will make the people of Scotland fully aware of the consequences of leaving the Union and let them see though the propaganda of Ms Sturgeon and the SNP.

We first see her panting on route to the job centre, cycling as fast as she can in her pink furry jacket.

24 Monday, September 13, 2021 WESTERN MORNING NEWS TV Repeat Four decades doing the rounds Postman Pat began his delivery round 40 years ago. Marion McMullenlooks back on his first class service POSTMAN Pat and his black and white cat Jess have become international stars since making their first delivery 40 years ago. There have been books, a video game, a stage show and even a movie, but it all began on September 16, 1981, when the jaunty theme tune was heard for the first time on BBC1. The adventures of rural postman Pat Clifton in the fictional village of Greendale were created by former librarian and teacher John Cunliffe who said he picked the name at random from the phone book. Quick fact Stephen Mangan was the voice of Postman Pat in the 2014 movie and joked: “You grow up thinking you might be James Bond one day and you turn out to be Postman Pat.” The voice cast also included Harry Potter actor Rupert Grint and Doctor Who star David Tennant. Ronan Keating provided Postman Pat’s singing voice. He wrote the scripts for the original 13-part series and the show was directed by animator Ivor Wood, who also worked on the Magic Roundabout, The Wombles, Paddington Bear and the Herbs. Greendale was based on the valley of Longsleddale, near Kendal, and more episodes and TV specials followed with a new version of the series produced by Cosgrove Hall Films from 2003. The show was so popular that Prince William took a Postman Pat flask with him on his first day of school and Harry Enfield Pat with Stephen Mangan Harry Enfield as Il Postino Pat with Dawn French did a TV comedy spoof sketch with Dawn French called Il Postino Pat. Singer Ken Barrie, who sang the theme tune to BBC sitcom Hi-De-Hi!, was the original voice of Pat and sang the show’s theme song. It reached number 44 in the charts in 1982 and was often played by Sir Terry Wogan on his radio programme. Pat has gone on to enjoy popularity in more than 100 countries around the world. Japanese children know him as Pato San and he became the Christmas mascot for the Post Office in Norway. He was even dubbed into German in 2006 when leading broadcaster Super RTL acquired the rights to show Postman Pat in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Powers include a power to dredge, moorings, aids to navigation, repair of landing places, works and dredging licensing and penalties for obstruction of works. Modernised regulatory and management powers including provisions relating to parking places, removal of vehicles and vessels, byelaws, general and special directions. Charging powers including charges other than ship, passenger and goods dues, charges for services or facilities, setting of charges, payment of charges, compounding arrangements and rebates, deposits, liens, exemptions, recovery, consequences of not paying and exemptions. Miscellaneous modern powers including development of land, grant of tenancies and disposal of land, appropriation of land and works, other commercial activities, delegation of functions, bunkering, disposal of wrecks, unserviceable vessels, obstructions other than vessels, boarding of vessels and vehicles, notices, savings, amendments to the St Ives (Pilotage) Harbour Revision Order 1988, the Penzance and Newlyn (Pilotage) Harbour Revision Order 1988 and the Stratton and Bude Improvement Act 1901 and the revocation / repeal of the majority of statutory harbour legislation applying at each of the harbours. Further information about these powers can be found in the statement of support of the application. This proposed harbour empowerment order (‘HEO’) relates to the harbours of Portreath, Portscatho and Portwrinkle and provides for Cornwall Council to be the statutory harbour authority for each harbour. The HEO defines the harbour limits and amends the provisions of the proposed HRO to add the harbours of Portreath, Portscatho and Portwrinkle to the definition of ‘harbours’ within article 2 and their harbour limits to Schedule 1 of the HRO. This would mean that the provisions of the proposed HRO (as amended) will apply to the harbours. The HEO also amends the power to dredge contained in the proposed HRO to disapply the exemption contained in section 75 of the Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009 in respect of the harbours of Portreath, Portscatho and Portwrinkle. Further information can be found in the statement of support of the application. The proposed Orders would not authorise the construction or alteration of a project or confer development consent. Accordingly, Council Directive 85/337/EEC on the assessment of the effects of certain public and private projects on the environment (as amended) which is codified by Council Directive 2011/92/EU (as amended by Directive 2014/52/ EU) does not apply to the proposals and no environmental statement has been supplied. A copy of the draft Orders, plans and statement of support are deposited at the offices of the applicant at New County Hall (Truro), Truro Harbour Office, St Ives Harbour Office, Pier Master’s Hut (Prince of Wales Pier, Falmouth), Bude Harbour Office (Bude Visitor’s Centre), Newquay Harbour Office, Penryn Harbour Office and the Penzance Harbour Office. In addition, the same documents are also deposited at Curgurrell Farm Shop (Portreath), Jolly Roger Café (Portwrinkle) and Graylands Registry Office (Liskeard). These may be inspected (by prior appointment due to Covid-19) at all reasonable hours until the expiry of the forty-two day period referred to below. The draft orders and accompanying documents are also available for inspection at the offices of the MMO in Newcastle by appointment at the email address below or may be viewed on the MMO’s website at: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/harbour-orders-public-register Any person desiring to make an objection or representation concerning the applications should write to the Marine Licensing Team, Marine Management Organisation, Lancaster House, Hampshire Court, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE4 7YH or email to harbourorders@marinemanagement.org.uk. An objection or representation should: i. be received before the expiry of a period of 42 days starting with the date at the foot of this notice; ii. be made in writing quoting reference : • HRO/2019/00008 for objections / representations related to the harbour revision order application; • HRO/2019/00006 for objections / representations related to the harbour empowerment order application; iii. state the grounds of the objection or representation; iv. indicate who is making the objection or representation; and v. give an address to which correspondence relating to the objection or representation may be sent. The MMO will pass to the applicant a copy of any objections and other representations received. If an objection is duly made and not withdrawn then the MMO may cause an inquiry to be held. Any objections duly made and not withdrawn and any representations duly made will be considered before the MMO decides whether or not to make the Orders.

32 Monday, September 13, 2021 WESTERN MORNING NEWS SPORT Wells century puts Lancs on top against Somerset Richard Latham sports@westernmorning.co.uk Luke Wells’ first century for Lancashire led them to 364 for eight on an entertaining opening day of the LV=Insurance County Championship Division I match with Somerset at Taunton. The former Sussex batsman struck a powerful 103 off 113 balls, with 20 fours, receiving good support from Josh Bohannon, who contributed 50 and shared a third-wicket stand of 155 after the home side had won the toss. Steven Croft later made 71 and Tom Bailey 54 not out, while Jack Brooks and Tom Abell claimed three victims each in a depleted Somerset attack. The hosts were without their three leading wicket-takers this season. Craig Overton and Josh Davey pulled out because of fitness issues and, with Lewis Gregory also on the injured list, there was a first class debut for 19-year-old seamer Ned Leonard. The Academy product was given the new ball and soon celebrated his maiden Championship wicket as, with Lancashire’s score on 27, George Balderson edged to Tom Lammonby at third slip. The following over from Brooks saw Alex Davies caught behind. But that was as good as it got for the hosts in the morning session. Wells was soon punishing a number of overpitched deliveries with powerful drives, hitting 11 fours in a 48-ball half-century. The tall left-hander was also effective off the back-foot to anything short and, with Somerset’s seamers straying in line and length, the runrate was more like a one-day game. By lunch, Wells and Bohannon had taken the score to 127 for two with a century stand off 23 overs. The afternoon session saw Wells move to an impressive hundred with successive boundaries off Abell before the next delivery saw him edge to James Hildreth at first slip. In Abell’s next over, Bohannon reached fifty, also with successive fours, and then immediately fell to a catch by Tom Lammonby in a strange position between backward point and short third man. Bohannon had faced 118 balls and hit seven boundaries. Rob Jones quickly followed, comfortably taken by Hildreth, before Dane Vilas and Croft took up the attack, continuing the fast scoring. They added 65 before Vilas, on 36, suffered a lapse in concentration and fell lbw to Brooks pushing down the wrong line. Danny Lamb fell in similar fashion and at 268 for seven Lancashire were in danger of failing to capitalise on their morning’s work. At tea, it was 276 for seven, with Croft unbeaten on 41. In late afternoon sunshine at the Cooper Associates County Ground, he moved to a solid fifty off 77 balls, with 6 fours. Bailey provided staunch support and by the time the second new ball was taken, at the start of the 83rd over, Lancashire were 316 for seven. Croft, on 67, was caught at fine leg off a Brooks no-ball to compound Somerset’s misery before Bailey went to his second successive Championship half-century off 111 balls. Marchant de Lange had Croft caught behind in the penultimate over, but it had been Lancashire’s day. Barnstaple bounce back from thrashing with comfortable win BARNSTAPLE bounced back from a 70-point whitewashing at Clifton in National Two South with a 35-17 home win over Westcliff. Barum led from the second minute after Jake Murphy kicked a penalty. Murphy added four more penalties before the break to one in reply as Barum eased into a 15-3 lead. The second-half followed the first for a while with Murphy booting penalty number six. He took the running tally to 23-3 with a try soon after. Barnstaple added further tries from Flyn Elworthy and Will Topps, one converted by Murphy, to run out comfortable winners. Bournemouth’s East Parley home has never been a happy hunting ground for Brixham, who lost there 30-27 on their latest visit. The Fisherman lost a promotion > > Somerset captain Tom Abell celebrates taking the wicket of Lancashire’s Rob Jones Harry Trump Conrad Sutcliffe Rugby correspondent play-off there on their first visit in 2010 and have failed to win on any visit since then. Brixham’s latest tale of woe included playing most of the second half a man short after lock Joey Capaldi was sent off – and only going behind to a try eight minutes into stoppage time. Jason Capaldi bagged two tries for Brixham, who led 14-13 at half time and Matt Crosscombe a third. Mitch Pinkus kicked three conversions and three penalties. Okehampton skipper Dan Fogerty could see plusses in a 29-17 defeat by Hornets, even though it was the second defeat in the South West Premier Division. “It was an improved performance from our defeat at Exmouth [40-6] with some purple patches where we clicked and looked good,” said Fogerty. “Poor discipline and giving away needless penalties cost us in the end.” Fogerty and Joe Mawle were Okey’s try scorers. Kieran Lee kicked two conversions and a penalty. Exmouth clinched a 31-25 win at Polson over the Cornish All Blacks thanks to a Dave Bargent try two minutes from time. The All Blacks came back from 17-8 down early in the second half to lead 25-24 with two minutes to go. Then Bargent bustled through for his second try of the game that Henry Goldson converted and the game was won. Although Ivybridge lost 21-7 at Weston, team chief Jamie Tripcony felt a tighter defence was a sign of improvement. “We had to defend for long periods of the game and did it with a lot more intensity and good line speed,” said Tripcony. Charlie Bryant crossed for Ivybridge’s lone try and Matt Greiveson kicked the extra points. University of Exeter went ahead after 90 seconds against Old Centralians when No.8 Ollie Leatherbarrow scored the first of their 10 tries in a 66-10 win. The full list of try scorers was Leatherbarrow, Arthur Thomas, Benjy Joseland, James Botterill (2), Tom Hitchock (2), Charles McCaig, Ben Hammersley and Josh Barton, who kicked eight conversions. formula 1 Hamilton and Verstappen crash out at Monza Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen crashed out of the Italian Grand Prix – with the halo appearing to save Britain’s seven-time world champion from serious injury. Daniel Ricciardo took advantage to claim McLaren’s first win since the 2012 Brazilian Grand Prix. The Australian driver led home a one-two finish for the British team with Lando Norris taking a career-best second. Despite McLaren’s superb result, the race will be remembered for Hamilton’s collision with Verstappen. After Hamilton left the pit-lane on lap 26, Verstappen drew alongside at the Variante del Rettifilo. Hamilton moved to his left to defend his position at the right-hander, with the Mercedes driver narrowly ahead for the ensuing left-hander. Verstappen ran over the kerb which launched his Red Bull into Hamilton’s Mercedes. The rear of the Dutchman’s airborne machine ran over the top of Hamilton’s helmet, with the protective halo device absorbing the impact. The front of Verstappen’s Red Bull was then beached in the gravel, resting on Hamilton’s car. Valtteri Bottas, who started from the back following an engine penalty, finished fourth but was promoted to third after Sergio Perez was hit with a five-second penalty. Leclerc took fourth for Ferrari, with Perez fifth. cycling Hayter pipped on line for Tour title Wout Van Aert won a dramatic sprint finish on the final stage of the Tour of Britain to snatch the overall victory from Ethan Hayter. Van Aert had the power to come around both Mark Cavendish and Andre Greipel on the seafront in Aberdeen, and with Hayter getting boxed in, the bonus seconds gave the Belgian the overall win by six seconds from the Ineos Greandiers rider. The Jumbo-Visma rider raised an arm in celebration as he crossed the line before looking back to see where Hayter was – had the Londoner finished second he would have held blue – launching a second celebration when he realised his fourth stage win of the week had earned overall success too. Hayter held a four-second lead overnight but, as the sprint battle lit up, he found himself out of position as Van Aert powered away. “It’s a bit disappointing to lose it on the last day but I can be very happy with this week, the team time trial win and the stage in Manchester,” said the 22-year-old, an Olympic silver medallist on the track in Tokyo before winning his first major road stage race in Norway last month. “To be second overall between Van Aert and [world champion Julian] Alaphilippe is pretty good.”

34 Monday, September 13, 2021 WESTERN MORNING NEWS SPORT Lowe delighted as his Pilgrims put on a show for Green Army chris errington chris.errington@reachplc.com Ryan Lowe thought Plymouth Argyle ‘put on a show’ for the Green Army as his side were roared onto an emphatic 3-0 League One win against Sheffield Wednesday. First half goals from skipper Joe Edwards and commanding defender Dan Scarr put the Pilgrims in the driving seat. Then after a less flamboyant but nonetheless solid display in the second period they completed the victory with a last-gasp goal from Ryan Law. Lowe’s summer overhaul of his squad seems to be paying off, with Argyle eighth in the League One table after picking up 11 points from their first six game. “When we signed the lads in the summer I told them we were going to get this place bouncing and they were going to enjoy playing in front of these fans,” said Lowe. “It was fantastic, the hairs stood up on the back of my neck. When they sing my name loud and proud I love it. It gives me a buzz. “Me, the players, my staff, we all get the appreciation. We have put on a show for them, and we want to keep putting on shows for them because we don’t want to let them down. “There’s too many people at this football club to let them down. If I can help it, we won’t let them down.” Argyle, who are unbeaten in five league games after losing 2-0 at Rotherham United on the opening day of the season, made a strong start against Wednesday. Edwards scored with an overhead kick in only the seventh minute, with Scarr deservedly extending their lead shortly before half-time. Lowe said: “I thought every man on the pitch, and the ones who came on, were fantastic. The attention to detail of what we gave them all week was epitomised in that performance. > > Ryan Law smashes the ball home for his first Plymouth Argyle goal in the win over Sheffield Wednesday Dave Rowntree/PPAUK “We wanted a fast start, we wanted to get in their faces, we wanted goals, crosses and shots, we wanted bodies on the line and a clean sheet. “You don’t always get them, obviously, but you can see the way we are playing football. I have got to say we put a very good Sheffield Wednesday team under the cosh. “They have got some fantastic players and they are going to be up there but they came to our home ground, we have locked horns with them and we have got three points.” Lowe continued: “The performance was outstanding, but it’s just another performance now. That’s the standard. I know we have got those performances in us. “I think it’s going to be a tough league this season in terms of all the clubs that are in it, but if we can perform to the level I expect then we will games of football, like we have done today.” Despite the excellent all-round display from Argyle, Lowe was not completely satisfied with what he saw from his side, who are now eighth in the table. “I have just said to the lads there are a couple of things I want better,” said the Pilgrims’ boss. “I’m never ever always going to get it right but we are striving for good things at the football club. “We are not going to get carried away, we know what we need to do. We have got to knuckle down now and we have got to go again because there are another 40 games to play. “Will we get that same level of performance every week? I hope so but I don’t think we will. What we can do is that when we are coming up against teams who are going to put us under pressure we know how to counteract that. “We have just got to keep doing the things that we feel will get us points, and we have done that today.” Edwards opened the scoring when a cross from Conor Grant was not punched clear properly by Wednesday goalkeeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell, who was under pressure from Panutche Camara. The ball bounced out to Edwards and in an instant he hooked the ball over his head, and Peacock-Farrell as well, into the net, with retreating defender Dominic Iorfa unable to get back in time. Lowe said: “We want to keep things alive when we are in those positions. Joe was never going to back head it. “It was like a lob, but he showed great awareness to see what was there. I’m always pleased when anyone is scoring, and it’s great when your captain is scoring.” Scarr’s 40th minute goal was a fine finish when he ran onto a free-kick which was flighted into the Wednesday penalty area by Conor Grant. Lowe said: “There was still plenty of time to go after that and I thought we played the game fantastically. “Was it a complete performance? No, because we could have kept the ball a bit better and we went long too many times but I’m not complaining. We have won 3-0 and scored three fantastic goals.” Law, who celebrated his 22nd birthday last Wednesday, scored the first senior goal of his Argyle career in the sixth minute of stoppage time. The substitute ran onto a pass from midfielder Ryan Broom and beat Peacock-Farrell with a low shot at his near post, before racing off to celebrate in front of the Devonport End. Lowe said: “If you are not scoring you have got to create. Joe Edwards has been scoring and creating, Conor is the same. Lawsy is competing down that left side with Con at the moment. “If he wants to play in the team he has got to score goals and make assists because that’s the role expected of a wing-back.” Chiefs go down to defeat in first and last pre-season friendly EXETER CHIEFS..19 MUNSTER..31 Exeter Chiefs came second best to Irish giants Munster Rugby in their only pre-season game ahead of the 2021/22 Gallagher Premiership season, writes John Evely. The Devon side, who were beaten 40-38 in last season’s Premiership final on their last outing, lost 19-31 at a sun-drenched Sandy Park on Saturday, alive with the sound of fans back in the stadium. Both sides were missing a host of players with Chiefs bit by injuries in the back of the scrum and British and Irish Lions - Stuart Hogg, Sam Simmonds, Luke Cowan-Dickie and Jonny Hill, along with England centre Henry Slade - all having their mandatory rest. Munster came to Devon without more than a dozen of their firstchoice players, ten who were involved with Ireland this summer in the wins over Japan and the USA, while Tadhg Beirne and Conor Murray were also on Lions duty against the Springboks. Exeter opened the scoring in classic fashion, powering over from close range through hooker Jack Innard inside five minutes but for much fo the game their forward power met stern resistance. Munster tested the Chiefs defence with plenty of invention in attack with fly-half Ben Healy at the heart of their best moments, almost linking up with winger Calvin Nash with a clever cross-field kick early in the match. The two men would prove key for Munster as the afternoon wore on. Munster, who share a lot of similarities in their style to Exeter, opened their account through centre Rory Scannell who crashed over from short range. Running a new repertoire of looping attacking moves in midfield, Chiefs enjoyed repeated success breaking the Munster line but were guilty of wasting the opportunities they created. However, one such sieving move put England winger Jack Nowell in a position to take a quick tap penalty to himself to then step and power his way over the line for Exeter just seconds after centre Dan Goggin was shown a yellow card for an intentional knock-on to stop Chiefs scoring with an overlap. Munster hit back with a training ground move which saw Healy pass back inside to Nash from a lineout to open a hole for the winger to speed through and touch down. That left the game balanced at 12-12 at the halfway mark. Healy and Nash undid Exeter again after the break with both men throwing defence-splitting offloads to see the red shirts cut through Chiefs to allow replacement Neil Cronin to touch down. Exeter responded with a show of power, pushing their way over with a rolling maul from a 5m line out to touch down through number eight Rus Tuima. Fiji-born Tuima, 21, was a standout performer for Chiefs and the England U20s international could have a big part to play in the opening rounds of Premiership season with Exeter heading to Welford Road to take on Leicester Tigers next weekend. With 15 minutes remaining and mass changes being made from the 31-man squads, Exeter’s lack of accuracy cost them dearly with two passing errors from young full-back Josh Hodge leading to tries for Ronan Salanoa and a second for Nash. Chiefs had chances to get consolation scores late in the game but as had been the case for much of the contest their lineout struggled to deliver a platform to attack from which will undoubtedly be an area of work in training this week.

WESTERN MORNING NEWS Monday, September 13, 2021 35 SPORT Concerned Johnson admits Torquay have plenty to improve Richard Hughes richard.hughes@reachplc.com MANAGER Gary Johnson says Torquay United ‘have got to do a lot of work’ to improve the team’s home form after a third successive National League defeat at Plainmoor on Saturday. The Gulls were beaten 3-1 by visitors Grimsby Town after home defeats this season by Altrincham and Woking. They have now shipped 10 goals at home with all four of their points being won on the road, where they remain unbeaten. Armani Little scored his third goal in two games to give the Gulls a 1-0 lead but two good Grimbsy goals by Michee Efete and Giles Coke saw the visitors go into half-time 2-1 ahead. Dean Moxey had gone down with an injury in the first half - and was replaced by Dan Martin, while midfielder Little was forced off too, with striker Dan Holman also limping from the pitch in the second half. To make matters worse, Joe Lewis thought he had scored an equaliser with one of his many headers, but > > Connor Lemonheigh- Evans challenges with Adam Crookes Dave Crawford/PPAUK the referee said the ball hadn’t crossed the line before it was clawed back by the Grimsby goalkeeper James McKeown - a decision Johnson later questioned. Furthermore, Chiori Johnson, back after his one-game suspension, also picked up an injury but had to carry on because there were no more subs. A knee knock had meant Torquay were already missing midfielder Tom Lapslie, while Jake Andrews is yet to figure this season. Torquay did finish the game the stronger team - but were hit on the counter attack for Gromsby’s third goal by Harry Clifton, and that was that - another bad day at Plainmoor. Johnson certainly wasn’t pulling any punches afterwards. The manager said: “I think, on the day, they looked more dangerous than us. They were quicker, sharper, quickerthinking, and we can’t break this form where we get a couple of opportunities, and don’t take them. “It’s always good to score first, wherever you are, but especially at home. But it only got them going. We got gradually worse and they got gradually better. “We have got to liven our home form up - that’s for sure. Because not enough people are doing enough.” Grimsby attacked well down the right all afternoon, former Torquay loanee Efete at right-back, who scored a marvellous solo goal after running 40 yards, and winger Erico Sousa especially, were a constant threat. And they weren’t the only dangermen. Johnson said: “They had a couple of players who I thought played very well - and are above this level. I won’t give out their names or anything but they have got two or three that did very well, they are dangermen, and they created the opportunities.” Johnson will now have to assess how injured some of his players are - with Little doubtful for the game at Solihull Moors on Tuesday after he felt a tight hamstring. “He came off because he felt his hamstring and he has had trouble with his hamstrings - so we will have to assess it in a couple of days time,” said Johnson. “But we don’t want to lose him, that’s for sure. We’ll have to wait and see.” The next home game is against Southend United next Saturday. Johnson said: “We have got to do a lot of work, maybe we won’t get it done by Tuesday, but we certainly have got to do a lot of stuff to turn the home form around - and look to see where we can improve our play.” ‘Complete performance’ has Grecians boss Taylor drooling DANIEL CLARK Daniel.Clark@reachplc.com Exeter City manager Matt Taylor hailed the ‘complete performance’ as the Grecians thrashed a poor Scunthorpe United side 4-0. Matt Jay put City ahead just before the break heading home a Jevani Brown cross, before the two combined again 16 seconds in the second half to make it two with the captain prodding home. Josh Key made it three after a brilliant counter-attack, before Tim Dieng got in on the act with 15 minutes to go from close range to finish the rout. In truth, City had the chances to win by more, with the Iron producing next to nothing in the way of a threat going forward, and the win, albeit only the second of the season, lifts Taylor’s men to 8 th and means it is just one loss in 15 now. “It was a good performance and a complete performance from a collective unit who wanted to do the right thing today,” Taylor said. “Goals always change games and we had to wait for the first, but the second just after half time gave us a real boost and put the opposition on the back foot, and then we got a couple more. It was comfortable towards the end, but we made it comfortable. “To do that in front of the supporters is fantastic as they not only own the club but support us through thick and thin and we want to repay them with good performances.” Brown may not have got on the scoresheet, but created three of the four goals, while Sam Nombe led the line magnificently again, and while both have yet to score for City - indeed, neither have scored since November, Taylor praised what they bring to the side even without the goal.s “We’ve not been able to partner Jevani and Sam together much, but it is what we were working towards,” he said. “It is important we get the attacking players fit and firing and we have a threat about us. MJ always puts the ball in the back of the net but we have to share the goals around “It was another positive 90 minutes for Sam and we believe he will keep on improving and when he starts scoring we have a hell of a player on our hands. He led the line well and is a foil for our other players who get the best out of Jevani and MJ if he is on the pitch. “I was pleased as I felt we had a strong bench, collective unit, and am leaving good players out of the squad. Our mindset was improved, and there were some really strong positive performances.” It was a second goal of the season for Key, who again impressed as a right wing-back, and Taylor said that his performance showed why they were desperate to keep him in the face of interest from Sunderland this summer. He said: “There was a reason we were desperate to hold on to him. He is a good player but there are improvements to be made and he can be the complete package. He isn’t there yet, but he will get there.” And on summer signing Dieng, who completed his first 90 minutes since arriving from Southend and he made it two goals this season, Taylor added: “He is physical, covers both > > The Exeter City players celebrate one of their four goals at Scunthorpe Steve Bond/Pinnacle boxes well, has a goal threat about him, and is outstanding in both boxes. You want goalscoring midfielders but also who can defend set pieces. “It was his first 90 minutes which was important and still finding the rhythm but you have something in mind when putting the team together and we are getting closer to it.” Jay gave City the lead on 41 minutes after Brown curled in a peach of the cross, the skipper timed his run to perfection to stay onside, and he deftly headed home past Rory Watson to give City the deserved lead, before he made it two and took his tally to five seconds after the break. Key had all the time in the world to prod home the third and his second of the season after a counter-attack, before the fourth came late on when Dieng tapped home from close range. It is now just one loss in 15 for the Grecians dating back to last season - one in nine this season - with them keeping a fifth clean sheet of the campaign, although the backline were rarely tested by a woeful Iron side.

Sport Western Morning News MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 13, 2021 johnson is left fuming by poor torquay football PAGE 35 Brilliant Grecians delight Brown > > Joe Edwards celebrates his goal after putting Plymouth Argyle 1-0 up against Sheffield Wednesday at Home Park in League One Dave Rowntree/PPAUK Edwards helps Argyle on a ‘great day’ for club Pilgrims far too good for Wednesday as they cruise to a 3-0 victory at Home Park chris errington chris.errington@reachplc.com Joe Edwards hopes there will be many more goals to come for him after opening his account for the season in Plymouth Argyle’s 3-0 victory over Sheffield Wednesday. The Pilgrims’ skipper netted a career-best nine times during the 2020/21 campaign, finishing as second top scorer to 18-goal Luke Jephcott. Edwards had to wait until his eighth game of this term to get his first one, and it was a spectacular effort as well, which gave his side an early 1-0 lead against the Owls. A cross from left wing-back Conor Grant was fumbled by Wednesday ‘keeper Bailey Peacock-Farrell and Edwards reacted smartly as he hooked the ball into the net with an overhead kick. Edwards said: “I felt like I hadn’t been close at all this season. I suppose the way to do it is doing it with a little bicycle kick and getting it going that way. “I don’t even know what foot it came off, I will be honest, but it was a great feeling. It’s something that will stay with me. “I needed to get off mark and carry on from what I did last year and hopefully now the goals will keep coming. “As wing-backs, he (manager Ryan Lowe) wants us in the box when we can and get up there. If I can be in and around the box when things drop then that’s great.” Defender Dan Scarr put Argyle 2-0 up in the 40th minute and then substitute Ryan Law, playing at left wing-back, grabbed a third goal in the closing seconds of the game. That rounded off a memorable afternoon for Argyle in front of a raucous 13,000-plus crowd inside the Theatre of Greens. Edwards said: “We felt the atmosphere leading into the game. We knew it would be massive and we wanted to give them something to cheer about. “When we start like that, with the energy and the tempo that we did, not many teams will live with us. It was a great day and something we can really build on. “Being in an atmosphere like that, you have got to really play to your maximum and it brings out an added 10 per cent in you. “It was an amazing day and the place was rocking and it felt like that we really helped that in the first half an hour especially. “We wanted to start quick. It’s a tough place for teams to come here and we wanted to make sure they were in a game. “I felt that we did that and I think we carried it on for the rest of the game. We got our two goals in the first half and we were brilliant defending in the second half.” Scarr scored his first Argyle when he fired home from close range after getting on the end of a 40th minute free-kick from Conor Grant. Edwards said: “It was a set piece goal, which we have worked on, and it gave us a real base to go out second half and know that we have got that added assurance. “I think we had the better chances second half probably again. Overall it was a great 90-minute performance.” Attacker Jevani Brown hailed the brilliant all-round performance from Exeter City’s players as they eased to a 4-0 win over Scunthorpe United. The summer arrival may not have got his name on the scoresheet, but was involved and created three of the four goals, with his return from injury adding some creative flair to the Grecians. It is five assists for Brown since arriving from Colchester United, and while he admits he would love to end his ten-month goal drought, he is happy to keep laying on the chances for his team mates. He made the first with a curling cross that skipper Matt Jay headed home, before combining again seconds into the second half. Josh Key made it three on the hour after a swift counter-attack - again Brown playing the final ball -before Tim Dieng made it four late on. “That was an all-round team performance and brilliant from Cam at the back to the boys up front,” the 26-year-old said. “The boys are doing well to put the chance away and I am happy to keep on helping the team any way I can. “It felt a bit like the Bristol Rovers game and every time when we attacked it looked like we would create something, and after a long journey, it was a brilliant performance from the boys. “We have to keep working hard in training, but it was a great performance. We are looking forward to next week, it will be a tough week in training, but we can build on today, and get a run going.” Brown did have a chance in the early stages to break his duck, but saw a dipping volley tipped around the post by Rory Watson, with him adding: “I’ll keep working hard in training and I’m sure I’ll get on the scoresheet soon.” City have lost just one of 15 now dating back to last season - and one of 15 at St James Park - and Brown added: “We will be able to watch their games to see how they play and work out how to beat them.” Western Morning News Published by Reach PLC, One Canada Square, Canary Wharf, London E14 5AP.
