Derby Crown Court heard how the spat saw one couple drive to another’s address while streaming their journey live over the social media giant’s platform. But when Levan Lake and his partner arrived at a Sainsbury’s store close to the Markeaton Street address of Helen Sharpe and Wesley Potter, their movements had been tracked online. As the first couple went to leave the store, Potter was there with a hammer protruding from the sleeve of his top. And when the row ended up outside his and Sharpe’s address, she came out clutching the cleaver. Sentencing three of the four – no charges were brought on Lake’s partner – Judge Nirmal Shant QC said: “The sheer spectacle of people fighting in a public place is likely to cause fear or distress. “This was a busy public street and (you were) people in the middle of it remonstrating both verbally and physically.” Siward James-Moore, prosecuting, said the incident happened on May 3, 2020. He said the catalyst was a “tit-for-tat” argument over Facebook between the two couples. Mr James-Moore said: “Lake said he was leaving his home and was driving towards Markeaton Street and the progress of their journey was streamed over Facebook Live. afternoon which, by early Monday morning, had caused road and school closures and serious disruption on the roads, especially in the Peak District. Today, areas in the north of the county, including Buxton, are forecast to expect three more days of snow, according to Apple weather, Argument on Facebook ended with a cleaver and a hammer brandished in city street “Before getting to the home they stopped at a nearby Sainsbury’s and when Lake came out there was Potter with a claw hammer protruding out of the sleeve of his top. “Threats were made, there was some pushing, but not much more than that.” Mr James-Moore said the row escalated and ended up outside of with the Met office also predicting snow on higher ground. There is a 60 per cent chance of snowfall around lunchtime, although this may fall as freezing rain. snow is expected on higher ground in Derbyshire on Monday and Tuesday as well, with Glossop currently facing a 60% chance of the home of Potter and Sharpe, both aged 37. He said there Sharpe came out brandishing the meat cleaver, while Lake, also known as Levan Page, armed himself with a scooter. The incident, which saw Potter rain punches down on Lake, was witnessed by a number of neighbours. snow, according to the Met office. Temperatures are also expected to dip as low as –1C next week, with a high of only 4C. For Derby city and the south of the county, The Met office is not predicting any snow. It instead says Monday will be cloudy, with a chance of sleet, but with a high of around 4C. The police were called and all of those involved were arrested. Lake, 32, of King Street, Derby, and who has more than 50 previous convictions to his name, pleaded guilty to affray and was jailed for a year. Gary Short, mitigating said: “Since the defendant has been in custody he missed the birth of his son and his intention is to build a future with his son on release.” Sharpe pleaded guilty to affray and possession of the meat cleaver and has previous convictions including one for carrying a knife which she used to cut tags off items when shoplifting. She was handed a 21-month sentence, suspended for two years, and was ordered to carry our 20 rehabilitation sessions with the probation service. Judge Shant said she felt the defendant, who has mental health issues, shows “a realistic prospect of rehabilitation” and would not be sending her to immediate custody. Bianca Brasoveanu, her barrister, said: “It is a little upsetting that an incident she described to the police as a ‘petty Facebook argument’ escalated to the point that three out of the four people involved are sat in the dock awaiting sentence.” Potter, who has previous convictions including robbery and assaulting an emergency worker, pleaded guilty to affray and possession of an offensive weapon – the claw hammer. He was sent to prison for 11 months. Emma Hodgson, mitigating, said: “He felt that by going to Sainsbury’s with a hammer he would prevent Mr Lake from coming to his house and causing any violence.” The Royal Derby hospital SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2021 DERBY TELEGRAPH 3 Queen’s hospital, Burton News By EDDiE BisknELL Local democracy reporter THE outgoing chief executive of Derby and Burton’s hospital trust is on a salary of up to £265,000 – the equivalent of 10 nurses – and had a £5,000 pay rise during the pandemic. Gavin Boyle, who has been at the head of Derby’s, and subsequently Derby and Burton’s hospital trust, for six years, is now moving to a new job in South Yorkshire. The new role, as chief executive of the South Yorkshire Integrated Care Board, would see Mr Boyle take a pay cut, but he would still be paid £240,000. Salaries at this level are approved at a ministerial level following guidelines set by the Treasury. Annual reports published by the University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust show Mr Boyle, who has worked in the NHS for more than 30 years, is currently being paid up to £265,000 for his chief executive role. The new job in South Yorkshire has an advertised salary of up to £240,000. The average salary at the trust is £30,615, it says, meaning Mr Boyle is paid eight times more than its average employee. The lowest paid staff earn much less than this, with a current job advert listing an A&E receptionist role with a salary of £18,546 to £19,918. Mr Boyle earns up to 14 times that amount. Adverts for registered nurses and staff nurses at the hospital trust list a salary of £25,655 to £31,534. Papers from the Derby and Burton trust show Mr Boyle received a pay rise during the pandemic, taking his pay band from £255,000-£260,000 as of March 2020 to £260,000-£265,000 from March this year. For further comparison, Boris Johnson’s total salary as Prime Minister is £161,401, of which £79,496 is for his role as Prime Minister and Hospitals boss leaves £265K post for new role ...and a pay cut £81,932 is for being an MP. Meanwhile, Derbyshire County Council’s leader, deputy leader and opposition leaders recently all objected to the pay of its new managing director role with a salary band of £161,000-£176,000. Cllr Barry Lewis, leader of the authority, said no role in local government should have a higher salary than the Prime Minister and the authority is now to spend tens of thousands of pounds reassessing its senior officer pay. The Derby and Burton hospital trust has been approached for comment on the pay it gives to its chief executive. It was asked if Mr Boyle’s replacement would be on the same salary band, when a new chief executive would be appointed and whether the current deputy chief executive, Dr Magnus Harrison, who is also the executive medical director, is in line for the role. In response, Dr Kathy McLean, chair of UHDB, said: “The salaries of our chief executive and executive leadership team are in line with the NHS national pay ranges which consider the size and complexity of the role, the organisation and the experience of the individual. We have a strong leadership team at UHDB and have a resilient plan to provide cover and continuity whilst we work with our independent remuneration committee and governors to appoint the best person to lead us towards our goal of being the best place to work, learn and receive care.” The trust said it would be discussing an “interim and substantive” plan with its independent remuneration committee and governors. Mr Boyle, who lives in Sheffield, joined the NHS just over 30 years ago as a general management trainee in Liverpool. He spent the first part of his NHS career in and around Liverpool in both primary care organisations and hospitals, then moved to Exeter, followed by Winchester. He has held board-level posts as director of operations at the Oxford Radcliffe Trust, the Queen’s Medical Centre in Nottingham and at Leeds Teaching Hospitals. He has also been chief executive of Chesterfield Woodlands ‘could save NHS and employers £185m a year’ The boost to mental health and wellbeing caused by people spending time in the UK’s woodlands saves the health service and employers around £185 million each year, according to new research. Published during National Tree Week, the research is the first attempt to quantify the benefit to mental health and wellbeing of the UK’s woodlands. It found woodlands save £141 million in mental health care costs in england, £26 million in Scotland, £13 million in Wales and £6 million in Northern Ireland. Annual NhS spending on mental health treatment will be £14.3 billion in 2020/21, according to NhS england data. The report’s authors, Government funded company Gavin Boyle, chief executive of the University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust Forest Research, said the total savings figure was likely to be an underestimate. One of the main drivers of the boost to wellbeing is likely to be the increased physical exercise, the researchers said, but other factors that are more difficult to measure are also likely to be at play. They cite the example of “forest bathing” – the practice of mindfulness in woodlands, often while walking, accompanied by activities such as meditative breathing exercises. Funded by the Forestry Commission, Scottish Forestry and the Welsh Government, the study was based on 2016 research that found weekly visits to outdoor green spaces of at least 30 minutes can reduce the prevalence of depression in the population by 7%. Using this starting point, the researchers compared this to data gathered by the Public Opinion of Forestry Survey, which has been conducted by Forest Research every two years since 1995. Woods at Calke, taken by Janet Jones In 2019, 37% of respondents in england and Northern Ireland visited woodland at least several times a month, while in Wales this figure was an estimated at 44%, rising to 51% among people in Scotland. Around 3.3% of UK adults have a diagnosis of depression, 5.9% suffer from anxiety and a further 7.8% have a common, unspecified mental health disorder, according to NhS data. In 2020, it cost the NhS an estimated £1,640 to treat a patient with depression and £705 to treat anxiety. The report also considered the value of trees in streets, and found they potentially shave £16 million off the cost to the NhS each year of treating poor mental health. Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. Mr Boyle joined the now defunct Derby Teaching Hospitals (it merged with Burton to form UHDB in July 2018) as chief executive in March 2016 and will leave the organisation in the new year. Dr McLean, chair of the trust, said: “We’re very grateful to Gavin for the work he has done over the past six years. On behalf of all of our communities I would like to thank Gavin for the work he has done here in Staffordshire and Derbyshire and we wish him well in his new role.” Mr Boyle, commenting on Twitter, said: “Delighted to be confirmed as the CEO designate for the South Yorkshire Integrated Care Board – exciting times ahead. So proud of Team UHDB for all you’ve achieved and your ambitions for the future. Thanks for all the good wishes.” In a press release published by South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System, he said: “It’s an enormous privilege to be appointed as the first chief executive of the South Yorkshire Integrated Care Board. There’s a long track record in South Yorkshire of partner organisations working together. “I’m excited to be part of a new approach which seeks to address health inequalities, improve clinical outcomes, make services more effective and contribute to the wider social and economic development of the region. “There are undoubtedly many challenges ahead as the NHS recovers from the effects of Covid-19 and seeks to address the health inequalities that the pandemic has thrown into sharp relief. “I particularly welcome the opportunity to work closely with local leaders in Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield. My priority will be to work with them to help support our communities to be healthy but able to access good quality joined-up services when they need to.” For Sale By Auction - Friday 17 th December The auction will be conducted by our auctioneer, Andrew Parker, broadcast live online with remote bidding only.

4 DERBY TELEGRAPH SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2021 @derbyshire_live News By CALLUM PARKE A gROUp of volunteers from across Derbyshire are putting together thousands of boxes of Christmas presents for disadvantaged children worldwide, and are calling for donations. The Teams 4 U Christmas Shoebox Appeal is working with members of the Rotary Club of Derby to package around 5,000 boxes for children of all ages in Romania, Moldova, Belarus and georgia. It will be the only Christmas present many of them receive this year, with the boxes containing a mix of sweets, cuddly toys, toiletries, clothes and games. Many of the devoted team of around 40 volunteers have been involved in the project since it began 30 years ago, and they work throughout the day boxing and wrapping the gifts from a small retail unit at Darley Abbey Mills. pat Charge, warehouse manager for the project, said: “It’s a good start to our Christmas, you feel like you’ve done something good. I’ve seen films of the children receiving the presents and it’s a worthwhile thing to do. “Covid was awful, we were having to take people’s temperatures before they came and we all got hot and bothered as you are dashing about. It was worrying, keeping people safe. The numbers were down but we got through. “It’s amazing to think this is the first present a child could have ever received.” The boxes come to the retail unit from as far away as Sheffield and are checked by the volunteers to ensure everything inside is appropriate for their recipients and sorted into age categories. given that many of the countries are war-torn, military toys are not included, nor are religious items. They cost £2.50 to send, which people can put inside They have never had a present in their life, some of them did not even know what a present was. the box for the volunteers to take out before it is repacked and shipped off in time for Christmas. The project began in 1989 when Dave Cook, from Wrexham in Wales, saw the reality of life for many children in orphanages in countries which used to be part of the Soviet Union. In the past, the boxes have been sent to countries including Bulgaria, Kosovo and Serbia, as well as African countries, although the latter has not been possible this year due to Covid complications. The effort is helped by members of the Rotary Club of Derby and the Rotary Clubs of Ashbourne and of Belper and Duffield. John Worthy, from Darley, is the regional organiser for the Teams 4 U charity and a member of the Rotary Joyce Baldwin Volunteers help spread Christmas joy to thousands of children across world Club of Derby, and believes that the effort is vitally important. He said: “The Rotary Club meets once a week with the aim of using our energy and expertise to help those who are less fortunate than we are. “We have a number of charities that we support every year. We look for volunteers to come and join us, and we’re always pleased to have new members. One of the charities we support is Teams 4 U which collects the shoe boxes at Christmas time. “We do the work in terms of contacting potential donors, people who we think might want to fill shoe boxes. “So earlier in the year we contact hundreds of schools and churches and businesses and individuals and nurseries and all sorts of people, anybody that we think might want to support this, and we write to them and we invite them to take part and then hopefully when they return Rotary Club volunteers are putting together thousands of boxes of Christmas presents call for donations to fill toy boxes for disadvantaged kids when they get back to us positively. “Then we organise our members to go and collect the shoe boxes. We’ve gone as far afield this year as Sheffield to collect shoe boxes from schools, and we bring them in, bring them here in our cars and then some of us come and volunteer in the warehouse as well. “This is what we’re there for. It means everything to us. We have a social life as well, but the main purpose for our existence is to try and help those who are less fortunate the where, whether it’s in this country or overseas.” HOW YOU CAN HELP Items that can be donated include stationery, hats and scarves, sweets (with a use-by date of before march 2022), puzzles and games, books and small balls. there is a particular call for knitted items such as hats and scarves, which people can either make themselves or purchase to be sent away. medicines, military-themed items, food other than sweets, Covid regulations mean that only three people can be in one of the two packing rooms at any one time, with some of the thousands of boxes having already been sent abroad where they will then be sorted again before being distributed. Volunteers do sometimes travel to help hand out the gifts at schools and community halls, but this can sometimes cost hundreds of pounds out of their own pockets. Joyce Baldwin, from Etwall, has been helping the team for more than 15 years and says that seeing children receive a gift is hugely reward- aerosols, money or any sharp or flammable items cannot be sent. the group are happy to receive any donations, and if you would like to become a volunteer you can email Pat Charge on charge_pat@ to get a flatpack shoebox to donate to the charity, you can contact John on 01332 553548 or email worthyshoeboxes@gmail. com. ing, having herself travelled to Kosovo eight years ago. She said: “It is brilliant. These children, when we say they have nothing, they are lucky if they have got two outfits. I was there in winter, but their plastic flip flops are their shoes in winter. They cannot go to school if they don’t have writing equipment. “Their heating is one of the big old fires that most people won’t know about but I can remember in my schools in the 1950s. Just to show how bad it is, they really wanted water so they could clean their teeth. That’s what we were asked for. “It’s wonderful to be part of such a huge organisation. I just think it is the least I can do, to give something back into the world that we just take for granted. “We have it so easy in England, you can’t begin to imagine. There are, of course, areas today which don’t have electricity, but some people live like that all day every day, no heat and very often no food. “They have never had a present in their life, some of them did not even know what a present was. I just love doing it, as I can imagine the children’s reaction.” SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2021 DERBY TELEGRAPH 5 By FAITH PRING A DErBySHIrE company has won a national award after working above and beyond to provide PPE to hospital workers in the height of the pandemic. Liniar, Based in Denby, is one of the UK’s leading PVCu extrusion companies and invested £20,000 on the development of PPE from April 2020. The team designed, prototyped, 3D-printed and manufactured protective visors, with their first batch being sent out after just two weeks. Their products ended up in the hands of royal Derby Hospital after family members told the company of their struggle to obtain PPE. Oliver Marriott, design and development apprentice at Liniar, who pioneered the development of the PPE, said: “My family members were telling me about continued PPE shortages – and as the pandemic continued to get worse, I could see the stress they were under. “I’m so proud that Liniar took my idea and ran with it and delighted at how many people, along with my family members, we’ve been able to help.” To date, Liniar has donated more than 38,500 visors to be used by NHS staff. As a result, the company was awarded a Covid-19 Business Hero award at the prestigious G Awards ceremony, held at the London Park Lane Hilton, at the end of November 2021. The G21 judging panel chose Lin- Liniar donated thousands of visors to local hospitals to respond to PPE shortages Award for firm that donated 38,000 visors to hospital workers iar as one of the two joint winners, alongside hardware specialist UAP, commenting “Liniar was one of two companies that responded to the crisis and achieved extraordinary results.” Accepting the award on Liniar’s behalf, group sales director Nigel Bishop said: “The PPE project gave our whole team a great sense of direction and satisfaction during very uncertain times. “The pandemic hasn’t stopped our community engagement – in fact, we’ve helped more people than ever before – so I’m extremely pleased Liniar has been recognised for the amazing work that’s still helping to deliver vital PPE to the NHS and care workers.” Sue Davenport, group marketing director, said: “Liniar prides itself on being part of something bigger, which includes participating in community projects with local schools and charities. “We were shortlisted for two awards, including Best Component Supplier, but winning in this category is really special. “It’s Liniar’s first G Award and is a real testament to the continued dedication of the team throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.” Restaurant offers free Christmas meals to less fortunate FOR many, Christmas Day is about eating and drinking and getting together with family and friends. But for some, Christmas can be a difficult period due to rising costs, with the average Brit spending £1,116, according to YouGov. But there are people like chef Cuba Bailey who offer festive help to those in need. The head chef at nonnas in Chesterfield is giving out free meals on Christmas Day for anyone who needs one. The 22-year-old also gave out free meals during lockdown in February. He said: “Whether due to financial company responded to the ppe shortage difficulties, mental or emotional fatigue or you are just struggling around this time of year, please do not hesitate to come down even just for a chat, I know it can be lonely.” Cuba said the meals will be entirely free, with nothing expected in return. It will also be completely confidential, but he believes there is no shame in taking a little help. To ensure no food is wasted, any leftovers will be donated to local food banks and shelters. The Italian restaurant in Chatsworth Road, Chesterfield, will be open from 11am to 2pm on Christmas Day. Chef Cuba Bailey is helping those in need on Christmas Day Sue Davenport and nigel Bishop accept the G21 award Liniar News Inquest into man who died beside A38 An inquest into the death of an 83-year-old man from Derbyshire has heard that he was pronounced dead at the scene of a collision on the entry slip road of the A38. Alan Edwin Taylor, of Somercotes, was involved in the incident at around 9am on Friday, november 19. At the time, Derbyshire police said Mr Taylor had been involved in a collision with a car on the northbound entry slip road of the A38 road, at Watchorn Island near Alfreton. The inquest into his death heard that a post-mortem examination of Mr Taylor, who was born on May 8, 1938, in Swanwick, has been carried out but a cause of death had not been determined. Mr Taylor, who was pronounced dead at the scene, was formally identified by a family friend and his full name, date of birth, place of birth, occupation as a works manager and home address was confirmed by his daughter Hazel. The collision between Mr Taylor and the car caused the slip road to be closed for several hours following the incident. Opening the inquest, Assistant Coroner for Derby and Derbyshire, Susan Evans, told the hearing it would be adjourned with a review due to be held in four weeks time. “The reason for the inquest is that it appears this is not a natural death, may I offer my condolences to the family.” added Miss Evans. Pedestrian killed in HGV collision A MAn died following a collision involving a lorry on the M1, it has been revealed. Yuksel Ismail, 23, of Borough Road, Burton has been named as the pedestrian involved in the collision on the M1 near Luton. Emergency services were called just before 7.30pm last Sunday to reports of a pedestrian walking up the slip-road of the northbound carriageway at Junction 11. Mr Ismail was in collision with an HGV on the main carriageway. Acting Det Sgt David Burstow said: “This tragedy will have a profound impact on everyone involved and our thoughts remain with the family of the young man who has lost his life. We are working to establish the circumstances that has led to this tragic incident and are appealing to anyone who was travelling on the M1 at that time who may have seen the man on the motorway or have dashcam footage to get in touch.”

6 DERBY TELEGRAPH SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2021 @derbyshire_live News Protest to save care homes By Christina Massey Protesters demonstrated outside County Hall in the fight against the potential closure of seven Derbyshire County Council-run care homes. Save Our Care Homes campaigners gathered outside the authority’s headquarters in Matlock on Wednesday to oppose the proposal to close the homes, which it claims need £27 million of repairs. A successful campaign last year saw the council shelve its proposal to close the homes in Sandiacre, West Hallam, Clowne, Tibshelf, Brimington, New Mills and Bakewell. However, the renewed threat has prompted public outcry yet again. Mick Coppin, care campaigner and GMB Midland and East Coast petition launched to trigger council debate Trade Union organiser, said: “Is this Groundhog Day? “Last year, at the height of the worst public health emergency Derbyshire has seen since the Second World War, Derbyshire County Council tried to close care homes in the county. “This put hundreds of jobs at risk, as well as putting at risk a much loved and well used public service from communities up and down the county. “These plans were rightly scrapped after local people and care home workers spoke out.” I would encourage residents to get behind the petition and the staff. A petition has been set up rejecting “the option of closure” on the seven care homes which are currently under threat and urges the council to “step-back from the implied threat to the other 16 care homes, which are owned and run by the council”. Once the petition reaches 7,500 signatures the matter can be taken before full council for debate. Emma Roberts, regional organiser for the Derbyshire branch of Unison, said: “There are some campaigns that you run because you think it’s the right thing to do and there are campaigns like this one where you really need to get involved. “I would encourage residents to get behind the petition and the staff and call on the council to protect staff right now. “They shouldn’t wait.” To sign the petition, visit SaveOurCareHomes. Emma Roberts ‘Great results’ as police launch major crackdown on city centre knife crime POLICE in Derby say they have ramped up their response to knife crime as the city centre is identified as a hotspot for violent crime. Operation Wintershield, which was launched last month, uses intelligence to identify hotspot areas for knife and violent crime. As part of the operation, a specialist policing plan has been put together for the city centre which includes proactive Operation Wintershield patrol cars, and increased foot patrols by both uniformed and plain clothes officers. Officers are also working closely with partner agencies with the aim of identifying and mitigating risk before a crime takes place. Inspector Clare Preston-Davies, who oversees policing in the city said: “It comes as no surprise that most violent crimes will take place in cities and larger towns, and I am really pleased to have been able to exploit intelligence gained as part of Operation Wintershield to maximise our policing effort in disrupting these crimes. “We are taking a zero-tolerance policy towards those found in possession of a knife, and our aim is to get as many knives off the streets as possible. Save Our Care Homes campaigners outside County Hall this week Christina Massey “We have seen a number of great results coming in, including securing successful prosecutions against two men who were carrying knives in Derby, on the same day, earlier this week. That’s two more knives off the streets and we couldn’t have done it without the support of the community. “In both cases (detailed below), we received calls from concerned members of the public which officers promptly responded to and were able to make arrests and bring charges. “If you suspect someone may be carrying a knife or have any other information which may help us tackle violent crime please contact us. “If you feel uncomfortable speaking directly with police, you can report instead to Crimestoppers 100% anonymously. “That seemingly insignificant piece of information you provide, may be the difference between life and death for someone out there.” James Lawson, of Church Lane, Morley was arrested in Spondon on November 30 following reports that a man was outside the Bank Bar in Aspen Drive with a knife. He was charged with possession of a knife and remanded to appear at court on December 1. The 30-year-old admitted the offence and was jailed for 26 weeks. On that same day, another man was arrested in Derby after reports that he was carrying a knife and behaving suspiciously. Aaron Anderson, of Rauche Court, Derby appeared at court on December 2 and pleaded guilty to two counts of possessing a knife in a public place. The 23-year-old was jailed for 44 weeks.

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2021 DERBY TELEGRAPH 7 By FAITH PRING A gRoup of Derby takeaways are threatening to boycott food ordering service Just Eat after falling victim to what they claim is a fraudulent refund scam. The takeaways claim that some customers are fraudulently claiming refunds from food orders that have been successfully fulfilled by the restaurants, resulting in them losing hundreds of pounds. usman Farooq, 22, from Delizia in London Road, Derby, is campaigning against Just Eat’s refund policy and is planning a protest. He claims that the automatic refunds for customers are losing his business, and many other small businesses in Derby, many hundreds of pounds a month. Just Eat says it has measures in place to combat fraudulent activity. He said: “What’s happening is customers place an order and they receive the delivery of the food, and then they select ‘missing item’ and because of the loophole, they get a refund of the whole meal that we’ve sent. “If we don’t get this problem sorted, we’re going to protest and turn our machines off because it’s not worth us losing out on so much money. “If there was a problem with the food, or a mistake, no problem and we’ll give them a refund, but we’ve sent out the food on time and they still get a refund.” What you’re actually doing is crippling small, independent local businesses. Also the chairman of the Derby Takeaway union, Mr Farooq represents a group of around 80 Derby takeaways that are vowing to boycott the delivery service as a result of the problem. He claims they are being “driven out of business” by the “scam” refund process on the food delivery service.

He added: “There seems to be a common misconception that you’re a business owner so you’re rolling in money. “What customers don’t realise is you’re a busi- ness owner who is massively over- drawn and haven’t paid any of your bills for months, and that’s probably the reality of it for most of us. “You wouldn’t walk out of a res- taurant without paying for your meal, or the supermarket without paying for your shopping. “But whilst you may think you’re just ‘gaming the system’ and getting a freebie meal courtesy of a multi-million pound business what you’re actually doing is crippling small, independent local businesses, often the very same ones who have supported our communities during the most Police issue photo plea after club sex assault A CCTV image has been released by Derbyshire police of a man they want to talk to in connection with a sexual assault in a Derbyshire nightclub.

Further information about the nature of the incident has not been released by officers looking into the matter. The victim, thought to be a woman in her 20s, is understood to have been sexually assaulted while in the bar.

8 DERBY TELEGRAPH SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2021 @derbyshire_live News Normanton Barracks in the 1950s The Palm Court Restaurant, Allestree, which shared its name with Palm Court Island How do you prove you’re from Derby? There are many things we share with our East Midlands neighbours, such as aspects of our language. But here Anton Rippon suggests some things that only a true Derbeian would know... TELL a stranger to Derby that you’ll meet them at the Barracks and you’ll probably never see them again. The 19th-century military headquarters after which the area on the corner of Osmaston Park Road and Sinfin Lane is known was demolished 40 years ago. It is one of those Derby locational names, a bit like the Shot Tower corner or the Palm Court Island, that lives on long after what once stood there disappeared. The Shot Tower corner? Yes, the Morledge building that today houses a business hub is named after the 180ft-tall structure, built in 1809, that was demolished to make way for Derby’s 1932 Central Improvement Plan. It was designed to produce smalldiameter shot balls by the free fall of molten lead that was the caught in a water basin. Actually, it wasn’t on that corner at all; it stood across the road, on what is now the Council House car park. And that Palm Court Island? That was home of the restaurant of the same name, at the bottom of Devonshire Avenue, at its junction with the A6 Duffield Road. The restaurant unexpectedly closed after serving Sunday lunch on April 3, 2005. Derby City Council approved plans to replace the building with flats. It was scheduled for demolition in 2007 but arsonists got there first and it was severely damaged by fire in July that year. Now it’s just a name on a map. It’s these little things that make our city different, although claims that some of our familiar expressions are peculiar to Derby are often wide of the mark. Above, the Shot Tower, which was demolished in the early 1930s and below, ‘Shot Tower Corner’ as it appears now The Shot Tower ‘business hub’ but not really where the Shot Tower was... It’s a bit black over Bill’s mother’s? I read recently that this is a Derby expression. And a Nottingham one. Well, it might well be both. But neither can claim ownership. From Sussex to Scotland, it’s said whenever lowering skies threaten rain. Meanwhile, the argument over whether it’s a jitty, a snicket or twitchel has long raged. When I was a child, we called the narrow walkway between Harcourt Street and Burton Road “the Jitty” as if it almost had a life of its own. But it’s not just in Derby. How to confuse a stranger to Derby - tell them to meet you at the Barracks ...or Shot Tower corner The term is used in elsewhere in the Midlands, and in mining communities in the south-east of England. But a visitor from Lancashire or Yorkshire might be puzzled. They’d call it a ginnel. We are one nation occasionally separated by a common language, as the old saying goes. In Coronation Street they’ll ask you if you’d like a brew. In Derbyshire we want to know if you’ll be mashing. Either way, there is a cup of tea at the end of it. Nottingham has recently tried to own “mardy” – acting childishly or ...yes, that’s the place - the Council House car park sulking – and Derby also lays claim to a word that probably derived from “moody”. But it’s used as far south as Northamptonshire, and as far north as Manchester. And in Hull, too, so I’m reliably informed. “Ey up” is a greeting thought to be of Old Norse origin (“se upp”) used widely throughout the North Midlands and Yorkshire. Which makes sense because in the ninth century we were part of the Norse-controlled Danelaw. However, “mi duck” is thought to be derived from a respectful Anglo Saxon form of address, “duka” (literally “duke”). From wherever it derived, it has nothing to do with waterfowl. Few words are specific to one town, city or even county. We’re all part of that East Midlands dialect that was the medial point when the northern and southern groups of Middle English dialects diverged in about 1500. In other words, we’re a compromise between two extremes. So, when you think about it, it’s a puzzle that there are people who still don’t understand us.

10 DERBY TELEGRAPH SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2021 @derbyshire_live News By CALLUM PARKE One of Derbion’s food outlets has had to make major improvements after being given a one-star rating by food hygiene inspectors. Pasta 4 U, in the second-floor food court, was visited by officers from Derby City Council on August 12, who found a host of problems. The eatery was found to be storing gluten-free products with wheatbased bread rolls, greasy and dirty equipment and “no implementation of basic cleanliness”. However, owner Darren said that changes had been made to rectify the problems outlined in the report, including staff changes. He said: “Due to Covid we lost a lot of staff and we had to take on new staff, and they have since left. They weren’t performing as they should have been. All the recommendations were changed immediately and the new staff are working as they should. “Obviously, we apologise to our customers. We try our best, but it was difficult due to Covid, people not coming work etc. But that’s no excuse. The changes have been implemented and as soon as we can, we are going to have a reinspection. The restaurant is now clean and there are no problems.” Pasta 4 U in Derbion, Derby The restaurant was busy when visited by our reporter and serves a range of pasta and pizza dishes, as well as hot and cold drinks. During its inspection, it was judged to be generally satisfactory in terms of hygienic food handling, but required improvement over cleanliness and condition of the building and facilities and in need of major improvement over management of food safety. The report, seen by the Derby Telegraph following a Freedom of Information request, said: “At the time of my visit, open gluten-free pizza bases were being stored in contact with a wheat based product (bread cobs) in the refrigerator, which is unacceptable and is highly likely to lead to contamination and ultimately be injurious to the health of the gluten intolerant consumer. “This is the second time that this offence has been identified at your premises. “I was disappointed to find cleaning throughout your premises was Dirty food containers were found in use by inspectors Greasy kitchen surfaces and damaged equipment and floors were found Food court outlet handed single star for its hygiene poor and that the structure of your premises had deteriorated significantly since my last inspection. “Whilst staff were able to discuss food safety it was apparent that there was no implementation of basic cleanliness, which is one of the basic building blocks of producing safe food. Although staff said they had completed training there was no evidence that staff handling food had received training.” The outlet’s food hygiene score was correct as of December 3, 2021. What the ratings mean and how they work... A one-out-of-five rating means major improvement is necessary, with a zero-out-of-five rating meaning that urgent improvement is needed and can allow local authorities to temporarily close establishments if they pose a risk to public safety. A rating of three or higher means a business is broadly compliant with food safety regulations, which are set by the Food Standards Agency and enforced by councils. After a business is inspected, the council has 14 days to inform operators of the scoring decision. The business then has 21 days to appeal against that decision and only after this can the Derby Telegraph submit a Freedom of Information request, which can take up to 20 working days to be provided. once this information is received, the business in question is again contacted for comment to see what action it has taken before publishing the findings of the report.

SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2021 DERBY TELEGRAPH 11 News JCB worker abused trust to spend company thousands on credit cards A JCB worker abused her position of trust to spend thousands of pounds on company credit cards, a court has heard. Kendra Fisher has admitted fraud by abuse of position while working as a corporate travel consultant at JCB headquarters in Rocester. Cannock Magistrates’ Court heard that the offences happened between September 14, 2020, and July 5, 2021, when she was expected to safeguard the financial interests of JCB – but abused her position by using two company credit cards to purchase goods and services. The prosecution has said the fraud amounted to £12,371 but Fisher claimed it was around £10,000. But she was told the discrepancy would not make a difference to any sentence imposed. Magistrates heard that around £1,600 related to her using a travel system to buy train tickets for her sons to get to their educational establishments. The 43-year-old then spent thousands during a shorter period of around three months on expenses including supermarket shops, electricals and theatre tickets. When she was challenged by bosses at JCB, she told them it came as no surprise and that she had expected the conversation, effectively admitting the crime. She has no previous convictions and the court was also told she was a carer and single parent. Magistrates decided their powers were insufficient for the sentencing of Fisher, of Sadler Drive, Doveridge, and her case would be sent to Stafford Crown Court. The maximum sentence that can be imposed on an adult defendant for a single either-way offence is six months’ imprisonment and/or a fine. The date for her sentencing hearing has not yet been set and Fisher was told that she would be notified in the post. She answers unconditional bail until her next appearance before the court. Magistrates also asked for the probation service to prepare an all-options pre-sentence report on Fisher to help the crown court judge sentence her appropriately. Man who threw kitchen knife at police cries as he gets his first taste of prison By Martin Naylor A 23-year-old Derby man sobbed and shook uncontrollably in court as he was handed his first taste of custody. Aaron Anderson wiped tears from his eyes and hid his face under his grey sweatshirt after being told he would spend the next 22 weeks behind bars. Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court heard he was twice caught carrying a kitchen knife on two consecutive evenings in the city. On the first occasion he had it outside a pub and on the second he threw it at a police officer who then had to use CS gas to incapacitate him. Handing Anderson a 44-week sentence, half of which he will spend in jail, District Judge Andrew Meachin said: “You had gone out on the first night telling police it was for your own protection. You then took one out on the second night and you are lucky the police officer was not injured.” Lynn Bickley, prosecuting, said the two offences happened on November 30 and December 1. On the first occasion, concerned members of the public called police to The Wardwick, where they found Anderson, of Rauche Court, with a kitchen knife in his waistband. Jacket theft bid earns fine Ondrej Slepcik, 27, of Reeves Road, Pear Tree, was fined £180 and told to pay £85 costs and a £34 victim surcharge by Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court for attempted theft of a jacket from Superdry in Derby on January 22, 2020. Miss Bickley said after being arrested and bailed for that, police were called the following evening by the defendant’s family who were concerned he would throw himself in the River Derwent in an apparent suicide attempt. She said: “They found him on a footpath, one of the officers was in plain clothes and could see something in his hands and asked him to show him what it was. “The officer produced his CS gas spray and the defendant threw the knife at him which made contact with his thigh, but there were no injuries.” Anderson pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of a knife and one count of assaulting an emergency worker. He has one previous conviction for assault occasioning actual bodily harm for which he was handed a community order in September 2020. Andy Oldroyd, mitigating, said his client has been struggling with mental health issues since splitting up from his long-term girlfriend in October. He said: “He was under the influence of antipsychotic drugs at the time of these offences which explains his behaviour over those 42 hours. He threw the knife in panic at the police officer and he wants to put this matter behind him.” Attacker must pay his victim Lee Redfern, 30, of Milward Road, Loscoe, was given a curfew and a two-year restraining order and told to pay £200 compensation by Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court for assault in Marlpool on March 25, 2020.

Baroness Casey’s independent review into events surrounding the match on July 11 concluded there were a series of crowd “near misses” which “could have led to significant injuries or even death”. in what Baroness Casey described as “a source of national shame”, around 2,000 people without tickets managed to get into the London stadium as england took on italy. The report, commissioned by the Football Association (FA) and published yesterday, said policing at the game “did not sufficiently mitigate the risk of ticketless fans, with officers deployed too late in the day”. Much of what unfolded was “foreseeable” and there was a “collective failure to plan for the worst case scenario”, the review said. in response to the report, Metropolitan Police Commander rachel Williams said: “i am deeply sorry people who came to enjoy a day of football were met with unacceptable scenes of disorder. We welcome the praise by Baroness Casey on the bravery of officers in directly confronting scenes of disorder. This moment of national significance was tarnished by ticketless, antisocial and thuggish fans intent on causing disorder and committing criminal acts. “We regret that we were not able to do more to prevent those scenes unfolding.” Evil stepmother and father jailed for Arthur’s killing ‘A “wicked” stepmother has been jailed for life with a minimum term of 29 years for cruelly abusing, poisoning and murdering her six-year-old stepson. Arthur Labinjo-Hughes was left with an unsurvivable brain injury while in the sole care of “evil” 32-year-old Emma Tustin. She fatally assaulted him with severe force in the hallway of her Cranmore Road home in Solihull, on June 16, 2020, with Arthur dying in hospital the following day. Tustin was unanimously convicted of Arthur’s murder after an eight-week trial, with the boy’s “pitiless” father, Thomas Hughes, 29, found guilty of his manslaughter, after encouraging the killing. He was jailed for 21 years during their sentencing hearing at Coventry Crown Court yesterday. It emerged at trial that Arthur had been seen by social workers just two months before his death, after concerns were raised by his paternal grandmother Joanne Hughes, but they concluded there were “no safeguarding concerns”. In her victim impact statement, which she read in court ahead of the sentencing, Ms Hughes said Arthur, as a “happy, contented, Emma Tustin Thomas Hughes thriving seven-year-old”, would “be alive today” had her son not met Tustin. The secondary schoolteacher added: “It is also clear Arthur was failed by the authorities that we, as a society, are led to believe are there to ensure the safety of everyone.” As the hearing began, Mr Justice Mark Wall QC said Tustin had been brought to court for her sentencing but had “refused to come up” to the dock. He started by saying the trial had been “without doubt one of the most distressing and disturbing cases I have had to deal with”. Jailing the pair, he said: “This cruel and inhuman treatment of Arthur was a deliberate decision by you to brush off his cries for help as naughtiness.” Arthur Labinjo-Hughes Addressing Tustin, whom he said had made a “calculated” decision to kill, he said: “You are a manipulative woman who will tell any lie, and shift the blame on to anyone, to save your own skin.” He added: “You wanted Thomas Hughes so he could provide for you and your own children, but did not want to be troubled by Arthur any longer.” The judge called Hughes’ “encouragement” of his girlfriend’s actions “chilling”. He added: “You were Arthur’s father, in a position of trust, and bore primary responsibility for protecting him. “He was extremely vulnerable and you lied to his school in the last days of Arthur’s life to protect both you and Ms Tustin.” SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2021 DERBY TELEGRAPH 13 IS ‘war crimes’ at jail The head of a UN team investigating atrocities in Iraq said extremists from so-called Islamic State (IS) committed crimes against humanity and war crimes at a prison in Mosul in June 2014, where at least 1,000 predominantly Shia Muslim prisoners were systematically killed.

Pope laments hostility with Cypriots The Pope has lamented centuries of hostility that has divided Catholics and Orthodox as he met the leader of Cyprus’s Greek Orthodox Church. Archbishop Chrysostomos II hosted Francis for talks at his residence and invited him to the new Orthodox Cathedral of St Barnabas. Sitting in front of the gilded altar, as the Orthodox clergymen chanted, Francis spoke of the “broad furrows” that history had cleaved between Catholics and Orthodox as a result of the 1,000 year-old split, when God wanted all Christians united. “Centuries of division and separation have made us assimilate, even involuntarily, hostility and prejudice with regard to one another, preconceptions often based on scarce and distorted information, and spread by aggressive and polemical literature,” Francis said. “This too makes crooked the path of God, which is straight and directed to concord and unity.” News / World Police hold 7 in Bosnia Bosnian police have arrested seven people suspected of war crimes against civilians during the 1992-95 conflict, authorities said. The group were apprehended in the areas of the eastern towns of Bijeljina and Sokolac, according to a statement by the Bosnian security agency. Bosnia’s prosecutors said those arrested were members of the Bosnian Serb police during the war. They are suspected of the execution-style killing of 22 Bosniak civilians, including seven children and eight women, in an eastern Bosnian village. Experience of Delta can help fighting new variant World Health Organisation (WHO) officials in the Western Pacific have said border closures may buy time to deal with the Omicron coronavirus variant, but measures put in place and experience gained in dealing with the Delta variant should remain the foundation for fighting the pandemic. While a few countries in the region are facing surges, Covid-19 cases and deaths in many others have decreased and plateaued, WHO regional director for the Western Pacific Dr Takeshi Nuffin like it Breakfast, done properly Kasai told reporters. In a virtual news conference broadcast from Manila, Philippines, Dr Kasai said: “Border control can delay the virus coming in and buy time. But every country and every community must prepare for new surges in cases. The positive news in all of this is that none of the information we have currently about Omicron suggests we need to change the directions of our response.” Much remains unknown about the new variant, including whether it is more contagious, if it can make people more seriously ill, or whether it can thwart the vaccine. Dr Kasai said Omicron has been designated a variant of concern because of the number of mutations and because early information suggests it may be more transmissible than other variants. More testing and observation is necessary, he said. Thus far, four countries and regions in the Western Pacific – Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea – have reported cases of Omicron, said WHO regional emergency director Dr Babatunde Olowokure. That number is likely to go up as more cases are discovered globally. People wait during an observation period after having received Pfizer’s Covid-19 vaccine at a vaccination site, in Fontainebleau, south of Paris Singapore and Malaysia have also reported their first cases in the last 24 hours, along with India, which falls just outside the WHO Western Pacific Region. In the Philippines, government epidemiology bureau director Althea de Guzman said on Friday that one of 71 people located by authorities after arriving in the country from South Africa in the last two weeks had tested positive for the coronavirus, and still more tests are under way to determine if it is the Omicron variant. The emergence of Omicron is of particular concern for organisers of the Beijing Winter Olympic Games, due to start on February 4. Beijing is adopting a “series of comprehensive prevention and control measures to minimise the risk of the spread of imported outbreaks, effectively protect the health of all participants and people of the hosting cities, and ensure that the competition runs safely and smoothly as scheduled,” a Beijing Games spokesperson, said.

We’ll keep you bang up to date with breaking news Cuts to bus routes must be reversed The Trent No 90 buses used to provide an excellent service between Belper, holbrook and Derby, including evenings and Sundays. In the past 25 years, the service has gradually been cut back. With a change in name to 7:1 and 7:2, it became unsuitable for anyone in holbrook depending on it for work or for recreation in the evenings or on Sundays. It did, however, provide a service for two of Belper’s districts. Trent found it difficult to maintain a reliable service. When Notts and Derby took over the service, again with a slight change of name, it became more reliable. But like many bus services the number of people using it has been severely hit by Covid. We are told that it is to be withdrawn after Christmas eve. holbrook will be left only with an infrequent 138 service to Belper (I do not knock the 138 - it is a useful service) and none at all to Derby. This is not the only reason why passenger numbers are low. Taking inflation into account, using a car is no more expensive that it was in 2010 when the Conservatives came into power. Trains are about 35% more expensive. And buses are 70% more. This is not unconnected with the privatisation of bus services. No wonder that many people choose not to use them. Not only is it unfair to those who are not well off but it militates against our country’s professed green ambitions. The route runs through the Mid-Derbyshire constituency (Pauline Latham) and Amber Valley (Nigel Mills). I would ask both of these MPs to help reverse this decision, and quickly, as people need to know where they stand right now. John Morrissey, Belper Timetables need putting in order I Do not know if it’s the same in most of Derby with bus timetables, but in Alvaston, near the Blue Peter pub, there are problems with both the electronic timetable and written one. For example, the route 4 bus times are never shown on the electric timetable or written one, yet the osmaston Park Road Sainsbury’s bus is shown, and that service has been stopped. Also stopped on a Saturday is the F1 bus, yet on the electronic timetable it is showing it is on. And at the Alvaston post office side, the majority of time the only route showing on the electronic timetable is the Skylink, when other bus services stop there also. All I can say to the people that are behind the timetables is get things in order. Ian Radford, Derby LETTERS Get in touch – tell us what you think Email: FAITH FILES We had a birthday party last weekend, with all the usual features – friends, cards, gifts, games, a bouncy castle, and a cake, of course. With candles. Came the moment, the birthday boy solemnly blew out all five candles to a round of applause. I remembered another party cake where someone had included one of those “magic” candles in the set which, when blown out, reignites itself! That always causes some laughter and lots of extra puffing. It would make a good illustration in this time of Advent, the month leading up to Christmas. Christians often describe Jesus as “the Light of the World”, recalling Isaiah’s prophecy that because of him “The people who lived in a land of deep darkness have seen a great light.” The candles with which we still decorate our homes and trees at this time of year mirror that light. They may not seem much, but First World War chaplain “Tubby” Clayton used to say, “All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of one candle.” Arts project bringing people together CReATIVe community group Spiral Arts is celebrating after being awarded £2,500 in National Lottery funding to support its work in Normanton. The group, based in Grove Lodge in Derby Arboretum, have used the cash to deliver a short creative wellbeing project with local groups, finishing with an exhibition of the work on Tuesday, December 7 from 11am to 6pm and Wednesday, December 8, from 11am to 3pm at Loudon Lodge. Spiral Arts has been running since 2005 and is a collective of 10 artists and volunteers. It was co-founded by lead artist Jenny Anthony after she realised that the community needed opportunities to access creative sessions locally. The collective are working with three main groups for this project – Young Carers, Derby College and Derbyshire Refugee Solidarity. each group is receiving four workshops which they hope will improve mental wellbeing and emotional challenges, teach new skills, and In the Bible John’s Gospel famously begins by saying of Jesus Christ (whose birthday is marked by Christmas, of course) “In him was life, and that life was the light of all. The light shines in the darkness and the darkness could not overcome it.” For believers here is a light that cannot be extinguished. It may feel sometimes as though darkness has got the upper hand as tragedy, violence and sickness dominate our headlines, that evil has conquered good, but Christian writer Nick Fawcett says, “faith reminds us that from the darkness of Calvary dawned the day of resurrection – a light that can never be extinguished. however dark life may seem, God has promised that his light will ultimately break through.” Whatever you are facing in the coming dark months, may the inextinguishable light of God shine in your life to guide your journeys, warm your heart and bring peace to your soul. Rev Philip Webb, Baptist Minister enable people to become more confident following the isolation and worry of the Covid pandemic. The Arboretum is a green breathing space available for all. This project will enable different groups to come together and feel connected to others in the community and to make them feel welcome. They will have opportunities to participate in the park activities. Jenny Anthony, creative facilitator and artist, Visual Arts & Design Ban the sale of these violent fireworks hAVING written to the Derby Telegraph for many years hoping to raise some interest in the banning of aerial bomb fireworks, which terrify animals both domestic and wild, let alone the elderly, sick and vulnerable, I read of the waffling, as usual, by Derby City Council in dealing with this issue (“Sparks fly at the city council over fireworks problem”, December 1). The only clear decision, surely, with these violent fireworks, a vandal’s charter to upset and intimidate, should be to ban the things from being sold, except for, maybe display purposes, and allow the attractive variety to be used. Is that so wrong to suggest? Roderick Clulow, Littleover Criminal lack of logic from Tory MPs TUeSDAY this week sent a message to all the public Tory voters – why would you vote Tory? There were Tory honourable members in Parliament refusing to wear a mask, going against the advice of their own health experts. I am 88 years old and can thank health experts for my long life. What do these members of Parliament think they can achieve with their lack of logic? They should be dismissed for criminal activity, or next they will be instigating following Trump’s supporters and storming Parliament. have they no responsibility in their eton-educated brains of what their actions are capable of? Derek Payne, by email Follow French way to cut illegal immigration TeN out of ten for Anita Maidens in spotting the obvious flaw in the argument of those who wring their hands in their own failure to control the relentless flow of illegal immigration into this country (“Why are the French not housing people?”, December 2). To risk death by crossing the Channel in something resembling an inflatable paddling pool there’s obviously got to be an incentive. It can be only one of two possibilities. either the welcome provided by the UK is so warm, materially and emotionally. or that an immigrant’s life in France is an unbearable living hell. Like Anita, my question to lovers of the eU project, especially those who cite humanitarianism as the basis of that love, is – “which is it?” I’m sure bombarding this country with illegal immigration is another eU ploy to undermine post-Brexit Britain. Forcing other nations to share the nightmare of their own folly is what the eU does best. My solution to reduce illegal immigration into the UK? Provide conditions equal to those provided by the French. or would Macron retaliate by making the French conditions even worse?

16 DERBY TELEGRAPH SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2021 @derbyshire_live News By CALLUM PARKE The daughter of a children’s nurse has paid a moving tribute to her mum who died from cancer. Judy Veale, 64, devoted her life to helping others as a senior sister in the children’s clinic at Queen’s hospital in Burton. She died on November 21 from lymphoma, a form of blood cancer, having been diagnosed with it in November 2020. She had three children – Rebecca, Naomi and son Charlie, who died in 2014 – and husband Kevin. Rebecca said: “Mummy was very kind and caring, which were good qualities to have to be a nurse. She was a good friend to lots of people. “She was a fabulous mum, too. She was trained to care for adults and children, which is unusual. Apart from a year in A&e she focused on caring for children. “She always said when adults got better they still moaned but when children got better they went to play, which she loved. “She’d always been great with parents who’d lost children but when we lost Charlie, at 21, it gave her a new appreciation of how they felt. “Mummy inspired Naomi to become a community nurse. She was a great support to her when she Daughter’s tribute to mum who was devoted children’s nurse she was well known and respected at hospital trust was doing all her training.” Judy had gone to university to study economics but quickly realised it was not for her. Speaking to her tutor, he said he knew the head of nursing at the college in Sheffield and she joined Burton hospitals as a paediatric bank nurse in February 2001. She became a popular, permanent member of staff, treating countless children and ran the children’s clinic “efficiently and professionally”. She spent many months in hospital following her cancer diagnosis, but received her long service award to mark 20 years in the profession. Judy died at her home in Clifton Campville, near Tamworth, surrounded by family. Rebecca said: “We thought she had a bit more time but it was very Judy Veale was a senior sister at Queen’s Hospital in Burton UHDB NHS TrUST quick.

Daughter Rebecca silence in Judy’s memory, with colleagues remembering her talent and ability to build relationships with families. Gavin Boyle, chief executive of the University hospitals of Derby and Burton NhS Foundation Trust, said: “She was well known within the trust and respected by all those who had the pleasure of working with her or had dealings with her, both on a professional and personal basis. “Judy forged excellent relationships with the families that were in her care, especially those that required an extra little TLC. “Judy’s colleagues have told me that her reputation went before her as the baker of delicious cakes, which she treated staff to on a regular basis – something that the consultants will vouch for as they often enjoyed cake with a cup of coffee in Judy’s clinic. “Our thoughts are with Judy’s family and friends at this time.” Judy’s funeral will be held at St Andrew’s Church, Clifton Camp ville, Tamworth, at noon on December 14. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2021 DERBY TELEGRAPH 17 News By EDDiE BisknELL Local democracy reporter Homes could be built in the car park of a former Derbyshire pub if new plans are approved. The application, submitted by F Yates to Amber Valley Borough Council, hopes to see two two-bedroom homes built in the former Derby Arms car park in east Nelson street, Heanor. Plans to convert the former pub itself into seven apartments were approved five years ago and subsequent plans to instead convert it into four apartments three years ago were withdrawn. Now homes could be built in the former car park itself, with a pair of semi-detached two-storey homes with one parking space each. A decision will be made by the borough council in the next few months. The plans show that one of the homes would be built facing onto the public green area and the other house would face onto east Nelson street. Access to the site would be off east Nelson street and through the parking area retained by the Derby Arms conversion, with the planning application detailing that eight of the 17 parking spots would remain. Homes planned for former pub car park but two objectors fear ‘inadequate’ parking The application says most of the parking area is surplus to the former pub’s requirements. It says the homes would be built in red brick with grey tiles to “harmonise” with the neighbouring houses. An application document written by Darren mayner Architecture, on behalf of the applicant, says: “The development site is located in an established residential neighbourhood, served by good local amenities and public transport. “The scale of the proposed development will not put undue strain on existing infrastructure but will provide two valuable, additional, modest-sized family houses. “each house will have a dedicated parking space with a turning area. The amenity space for each house is not overlooked by the neighbouring house or other houses nearby. “The design has been developed specifically in response to this site’s constraints and its urban context. The houses, gardens and parking fit comfortably on the site. “The scheme will have no significant adverse impact on existing assets or the neighbourhood. “Two additional houses in this location will make a positive contribution towards alleviating the shortage of housing in Amber Valley.” The former pub car park could become the site of two semi-detached homes The council refuse lorry struggles to reverse up East Nelson Street and emergency vehicles would also struggle to get access. Objector Two objection letters have been filed in response to the application, with one claiming that the parking plans for the site are “inadequate” and that the potential owners of the properties would own more than one vehicle. They wrote: “Parking on east Nelson street is already a nightmare since the conversion of the old Derby Arms into residential dwellings. This means that residents of east Nelson street are frequently unable to park outside their own properties. “Due to the timed parking restrictions on the main Loscoe Road, residents of Loscoe Road park on east Nelson street rather than outside their own homes to avoid the restrictions. “The council refuse lorry struggles to reverse up east Nelson street every week and emergency vehicles would also struggle to get access. “I fear inadequate parking provision for the two proposed dwellings would make the existing problem even worse for residents.” Stock up on delicious craft beer Includes: * £30 WITH CODE: 5XMASBOX nd can be applied to multiple orders.

See website for details. she ended up in a cold and mouldy rented flat By EDDiE BisknELL Local democracy reporter A SINgLE mum and her baby were sent 150 miles from London to North East Derbyshire so that a council in the capital could end its responsibility to house them. The incident has been revealed in papers published by the Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Foundation Trust, as part of combined work with the Citizens Advice North East Derbyshire. These anonymised papers do not detail the identity or specific London and Derbyshire locations of the woman and baby in question, but do list that the woman was aged under 25. The papers say the woman, renamed as Sam, had never previously been to North East Derbyshire and had no support system there. They say the “London borough council”, which has also not been named, moved the mum and baby so that it could “discharge its homeless duty”. This refers to a council’s responsibility to house anyone who has formally declared themselves as homeless. Neither the NHS trust or the Citizens Advice Bureau would detail the name of the council in question so that it could be approached for comment. The paper says the woman’s mental health “was previously good but declined as a result of her situation”. It details that the private rented flat that the mum and baby were moved to had heating problems, leading to “extensive mould and damp” in the property. Sam could not get the heating in her flat to rise above 15C, despite setting the thermostat to 24C so that it was of an adequate temperature for her baby. Due to the issues heating the flat, Sam was paying £20 every four days to keep the property warm and so was “choosing between eating properly herself and trying to keep the baby warm”. The report details that Sam has asked for a review of the London borough council’s decision to scrap its duty to She felt that ... agencies that she had tried to deal with... had been dismissive of her. Report house her by “finding her accommodation hundreds of miles away”, with her request supported by evidence from a Derbyshire health visitor. However, the review was turned down, the report says. The report lists a London law centre as being contacted by Citizens Advice to see if it would assist Sam in her case and the law centre is said to have agreed to support her, but the name of the organisation in question is said to be a pseudonym to retain anonymity. It also details that Citizens Advice had organised for Sam to receive food and baby items from a Derbyshire foodbank, but the name of the foodbank is also said to be a pseudonym. North East Derbyshire District Council’s environmental health department has been made aware of the issues at Sam’s flat, the report says, and is to carry out investigations of the property. If Sam’s case, taken on by the London law centre, is not successful, Citizens Advice says “we have established more grounds on which we can support Sam to be rehoused in more suitable accommodation in North East Derbyshire”. The report details that Sam says “although her mental health was still suffering, she felt better because she could see the situation more clearly and had a better picture of the way forward”. It says the young mum “felt that she was not being ‘fobbed off’ by us (Citizens Advice) as she felt she had been by others when trying to sort out her situation before”. The report continues: “She felt that other agencies that she had tried to deal with e.g. estate agents and councils had been dismissive of her. Sam said she will come back for further advice and support as the situation develops.” DCHS trust board members, discussing the case, said to date back to May this year, in a meeting on December 2, said it had them having to “reach for a hanky” and showed the value of NHS organisations working with charitable groups to tackle “hidden deprivation”. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2021 DERBY TELEGRAPH 19 News ‘Troubled’ young mum died after taking partner’s drug, inquest is told A young mother suffering from depression and anxiety died after taking her boyfriend’s methadone, an inquest heard. Nichole Bartlett, 25, of Ilkeston, overdosed on January 16, 2019. The inquest was told she had been diagnosed with anxiety and had suffered a troubled past. Ms Bartlett had been with her partner, Paul Betts, for 10 years and was bringing up her five-year-old son. In a statement, Mr Betts said: “She told me that she was raped when she was 11 years old, and did not tell anyone about it until she told her mother when she was dying.” Sabyta Kaushal, assistant coroner for Derby and Derbyshire, said Ms Bartlett had told her partner she had suffered from a “bad childhood”. Mr Betts said: “She’s always been a private person and I don’t know of any other serious things that have Woman beater refused to leave former partner alone happened to Nichole before. A few years ago, Nichole was diagnosed with anxiety and depression. She took medication for these and I tried to make sure she took her medication but do not think she’d been taking them for a few days.” On the night of her death she left her partner’s mother’s house, where they lived, in an “annoyed” state with a packed bag. Her partner was unaware of anything that had annoyed her. He went to visit her at her house at 11am the next day. He found a note on the door left by Miss Bartlett that said she wanted to be with her mum. This, he assumed, meant she had gone to visit her mother’s grave. That evening he revisited the house, got through the back door and immediately went upstairs. “When I got in, I went upstairs straight away and saw Nichole lying face-down on the bathroom floor,” he said in a statement to police. Her sister, Katie Norman, revealed both her and her sister struggled when they were growing up. She said that their mother, who was an alcoholic and drug user, failed to give them the love they wanted. Ms Kaushal concluded Miss Bartlett took her own life, adding that her death was a result of taking her partner’s methadone. By Martin Naylor A 30-year-old Derby man with a history of offending against ex-partners persistently turned up at one of their homes despite being banned. Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court heard how Bradley Cook was caught three times on the same evening on CCTV loitering outside her Mickleover address. The victim reported the matter to the police who arrived and arrested the defendant, of Alvaston. James Close, mitigating, said: “Let’s cut to the chase, I am not going to waffle on, he’s been in prison a lot. “Probation say he needs intensive supervision, is there any point returning him to prison or could he receive some supervision? “His relationships keep going wrong because he does not know how to handle them. But if you just put him in prison he’s just going to come out and do that again in my opinion.” Lynn Bickley, prosecuting, said Cook has previous convictions for offending against previous partners dating back to 2015 and 2019, including common assaults on them. She said on July 15 of this year the defendant was handed a restraining order as part of his punishment for offences against a third woman who he had been in a relationship with. Under its terms he was not allowed to contact her or go to her address in Mickleover. She said: “On August 10 she had just got home when she received a notification, a friend request on Facebook from this defendant and then another from him on August 11. “On November 17, at 6pm, she was at her address and received a WhatsApp message from the defendant which she replied to saying she did not wish to be contacted by him. “She has a Ring doorbell and at 9.45pm she received a notification on her phone and saw on her app that the defendant was loitering outside.” Miss Bickley said at 11.20pm, the same night, she received a second notification on the app and again saw Cook pacing outside her property. Just over and hour later the victim had a third notification when the defendant rang the bell again. She called the police who arrived and arrested him. The defendant, of Bembridge Drive, pleaded guilty to three counts of breaching a restraining order. District Judge Andrew Meachin handed him a 26-week jail term, suspended for two years. He also told Cook to attend 10 rehabilitation sessions with the probation service and pay £85 costs and a £128 surcharge. Judge Meachin said: “Clearly you have issues with relationships and coming out of them.” Gingerbread cookie jar £ 12 each Man fined for theft from shop Oz Smalley, 35, of St Anne’s Close, Derby, was fined £300 and told to pay £85 costs and a £60 surcharge by Southern Derbyshire Magistrates’ Court for theft and attempted theft from a shop in Derby, on October 23.

The awards, which were held virtually on November 25, celebrated the unsung heroes who work to improve the lives of jobseekers, communities and the wider workforce across the UK. More than 200 nominations were sent in from across the private, voluntary, social enterprise and public sectors. An in-person ceremony is planned for January next year – Covid permitting. Derventio Housing Trust is a Derbyshire organisation providing housing, The work she does is nothing short of remarkable. Jackie Carpenter support and specialist projects to people going through troubled times in their lives. Many face a range of problems including poor mental health, isolation from family, and issues with substance use. As part of her role, Julie has set up four services with the aim of helping people get economically active again. One of these, Talent Julie helped Stephen Fletcher to find a new home and turn his life around Match, has supported 222 young people. She manages a team of 14 people across three projects, and helps everyone fulfil their potential, whether it is their first job or they have years of experience. The trust said that in this team alone, Julie’s support has led to two people going on to become social workers. People helped by Julie over the years, along with her team, paid tribute to her calm, unflappable attitude and unwavering support in helping them during difficult times in their lives. Jackie Carpenter, assistant director of strategy at Derventio, said: “We are absolutely over the moon to see Julie’s hard work, dedication and amazing qualities justly rewarded. We have always known that she is a special lady and it’s nice that she has now won national recognition. “There were hundreds of entries to these awards, so it’s quite an accolade. The other nominees were amazing too. “Everyone is unstinting in their praise for Julie and the employability service that she set up and runs. “The best thing I ever did for Derventio was to ask Julie to come and join us. The work she does is nothing short of remarkable.” Julie, who works from Derventio’s office in Ilkeston, said she enjoyed the satisfaction of seeing someone coming from a low ebb to being economically active again and said her nomination was all down to the hard work of her team. One of the many people she has helped over the years is Stephen Fletcher, of Riddings. Facing homelessness because he struggled with the paperwork to get himself a new place to live, Stephen credits Julie with helping him turn his life around. As soon as he was referred to Derventio, Julie took Stephen under her wing. Her support included getting him a bank account, hiring a removal firm, sorting housing benefit, registering him for council tax and utilities, and even helping furnish his new home. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2021 DERBY TELEGRAPH 21 MARTIN NAYLOR I don’t deny there was a degree of trepidation as I walked to the railway station on Wednesday. Would people be flouting the new rules or adhering to them as they should do? Might there be an angry mob of dissenters keen to vent their spleen that , heaven forfend, they might have to put something across their face to protect themselves and others? Or perhaps, as I am sure many of you saw in the news this week, a flash mob of protesters could wander down the aisle chanting that wearing a mask is like trying to keep your wind in your trousers. And yes, to anyone who has not yet seen the clip, that’s the polite version. But as I walked down the platform to get on the train I was more than pleasantly surprised to witness something of a rebirth. Because whereas last week, on my trips to Derby, I was very much in a minority of travellers wearing a covering over my mouth and nose, on this day, almost everyone was. And surely that must give all of those on the carriages peace of mind? Where I was also surprised was It’s not a conspiracy, it’s just common decency and thinking of others that moments before my train left the station two uniformed police officers got on. I didn’t get the opportunity to ask them if their presence was down to the new rules on wearing a mask on public transport which came in this week. And I have no doubt that if it is the case the conspiracy theorists – and I know a couple personally I am aggrieved to say – will call this a waste of taxpayers’ money. But I found there was something quite comforting about this and I’m not ashamed to admit it. Obviously, there is always one person so personally affronted that they have to bend the rules as much as they can. And Wednesday morning was no exception. Down the other end of the Leon neaL/Getty ImaGes Commuter wearing a facemask There is always one person so personally affronted that they have to bend the rules as much as they can. carriage a scowling youth – maybe aged 20 tops – lugged his huge suitcase on to the train, slammed it down over two seats and then sat there looking angry while not wearing a mask. Feet up on the fabric seats where he had dropped his luggage he was challenged by a fellow traveller before reluctantly putting on a facemask. I couldn’t hear exactly what he said to the man who began the debate with him, but it included a couple of expletives. Hardly the actions of Marlon Brando in The Wild One or James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause, but I have no doubt he arrived at his destination happy to proudly relive his edgy behaviour to his pals. In conclusion, I should like to thank the majority of people for sticking to what they have been asked to do for the health of themselves and others as we navigate our way through the latest choppy waters of the ongoing pandemic. One of the first reported cases of the new variant of Covid was recorded where I live and, just like any strain, I am eager not to catch it, as I am sure you are. Others, less willing or understanding it seems, appear to be less so.

The Grade I-listed building, which has been renovated over the past decade by current owner Paul Hurst, is a fascinating warren of rooms which has seen many changes over the years. Those who look at its Tudor-style exterior might be surprised to know that the timbered facade actually dates from the 1920s, when it was given a timbered makeover.

24 DERBY TELEGRAPH SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2021 @derbyshire_live Food & Drink RAISE A GLASS WITH JANE CLARE Christmas time is a multi-flavoured extravaganza. And without further ado, here are some thoughts on white wine choices (there will be more) to flirt with your festive food choices. If you’re after zesty palate wake-up calls then you can’t go far wrong with sauvignon blanc. I sipped the latest vintage of Yealands Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2021 (RRP £12, Marks & Spencer, Waitrose) from the Awatere Valley in Marlborough, New Zealand. It’s a tastebud temptation laden with pronounced passion fruit and citrus notes which linger on the palate long after you’ve taken a sip. It’s delicious. Elsewhere, Aldi has Winemaster’s Lot Pouilly-Fumé 2020 (£14.99). This style of wine, also produced with the sauvignon blanc grape, is from the Loire Valley in France. Here this famous grape produces a more understated wine but by no means lacking in elegant green-fruited personality. The word “fumé” on these wines reflects a slightly smoky, complex character. Sauvignon blanc with its zesty, high acidity, is a good match for seafood starters; maybe scallops as a treat. It is also smashing with tomatoes if a tomato tart supper takes your fancy. Tesco Finest Passerina (£7) from Italy is a go-to easy-sipper with white peach and citrus flavours. If you have any turkey left over (of course you will!) this wine will be perfect as a pleasurable pour with a sandwich before you start to make that obligatory turkey curry. And then... Morrisons The Best Pinot Gris (£8.95) could come alongside and donate its apple, pear and floral notes to the curry and wine combo. Pinot gris is a riper style of pinot grigio and is one of my shoo-in favourites. This one, from Alsace, has a fleck of ginger spice to add a gentle tickle to the spices in your curry. Talking of curry: If you sip a wine with high alcohol content, it will have the sensation of making the chilli heat in your curry kick even harder. Be warned, if you prefer your curries on the milder side. Finally, the grape varieties gros manseng, petit courbu and arrufiac have created a soft, peachy-feel wine with a zest of citrus in Saint-Mont, Les Vignes Retrouvées 2018 (£8.95, The Wine Society). The wine is from Gascony in the south west of France and it would love to be sipped with seafood, a cheese platter or roast pork. ■ Jane is a member of the Circle of Wine Writers.

AS a young boy, chef James Martin’s mum would sometimes let him make his own packed lunch – and on those occasions, he knew exactly what was going in his Spider-Man lunchbox. “I’d have buttered white sliced bread and mashed up banana with a Cadbury Flake on it, press it down, wrap it in cling film,” he remembers fondly. “Then you get to lunchtime and it would sort of look – when it was out the cling film – almost like a tennis ball. It would be all congealed together. But you managed to eat it. Nobody wanted to swap with me, but it was proper.” Several decades on, this is a Yorkshireman who puts butter on roast potatoes (specifically when they’re “not cold, cold”, but lukewarm) and has now written a whole cookbook devoted to the yellow stuff, simply titled Butter. It shouldn’t be a controversial topic, but let’s be honest, people can get judgy about how much butter you slather on stuff (for instance, if you put it on gingernut biscuits... cue lots of raised eyebrows). Everyone believes their way of buttering toast is the ‘right’ way. “If it was my granny, she would butter it so much you could see a wedge of butter on it. I can’t do butter if it’s not visual on hot toast,” says James of his own butter-to-toast ratio preference. “I can’t eat it; it’s got to be enough butter to make it still visual.” Then there are the health concerns – James, 49, has a family history of heart disease and has a check-up every six months. “I’m fine,” he says. “It’s everything in moderation. I don’t drink, I don’t smoke. So there you go. If you complain about me putting butter on my bread, then stop smoking or stop drinking.” One of the reasons butter can (ahem) churn up so many opinions, he says, is because “people don’t know as much about it as they should”. The telly chef recently did a demo where 50% of the audience didn’t know how it was made. “People just think butter is butter, and it’s not,” he says, explain- inGRedienTS: Plain flour, for dusting; 8 sheets of filo pastry; 80g butter, melted, plus extra for greasing; 80g caster sugar; 75g flaked almonds, toasted; 4tbsp clotted cream; 4 ripe figs, stems trimmed and crossed to press open; 2tbsp honey. To serve: 200g clotted cream MeTHOd: 1. Preheat the oven to 170°C (150°C fan)/325°F/gas 3 and grease four 10 centimetre tart tins, one and a half cm deep. 2. On a lightly floured surface, cut out 12x12 centimetre Spread the James martin tells ella walker about the ideal butter-to-toast ratio, flake sandwiches and why margarine should be banned ing how different butters suit certain types of cooking. “If you’re going to do French-style patisserie, you just don’t use the stuff you get in the supermarket – it’s too heavily watered, and there’s too much water in buttermilk. Really, really good pastry butter should snap in half like a Dairy Milk.” The chef is classically Frenchtrained himself, and he believes “there is no substitute” for butter – certainly not margarine. “Margarine should be banned. It’s dreadful, dreadful stuff,” he says. “It’s two elements away from plastic, it’s horrendous stuff.” He even quotes Anthony Bourdain in the book, who says it’s “not food”. “I’m a farmer’s kid,” James continues. “We’ve always had full-fat milk, butter and cream. And that’s what we had. There wasn’t such a thing as semi-skimmed milk in our house.” He suggests those anti-butter squares from the filo pastry. From the remaining pastry, cut out eight discs, using a five centimetre round cutter. 3. Brush one filo disc with melted butter on one side and place it butter-side down into a tart tin. Lightly brush three of the filo squares on both sides with melted butter, then cut them in half into JOY arguments don’t factor in the full picture. Of course, eating a block a day isn’t going to be good for you, but “it’s not the butter consumption. It’s the ready-made food, it’s the packet food, the hidden salt, hidden fat – that’s the problem in this country,” he says. “It’s not the butter in a butter block, or butter you put on your toast. It’s the fact that not as many people cook in the UK as they do in France or Italy or Spain.” The pandemic has shifted that attitude slightly, he reckons, and he also believes people are now “more appreciative” of the restaurant industry and those who work in it. “You’ve spent the last 18 months to two years cooking for yourself, you realise it’s not that glamorous, is it, every single day of the week, day in, day out?” The bookings Filo croustades oF Figs, almonds and clotted cream (Serves 4) triangles. Arrange the triangles evenly on the disc like petals, then seal them with another filo disc on top (this will ensure light, flaky and crisp croustades). Repeat to assemble the remaining three tart shells. 4. Bake the tarts for eight to 10 minutes until crisp and golden, then carefully place them on a It’s the ready-made food, it’s the packet food, the hidden salt, hidden fat – that’s the problem in this country James Martin, left for his restaurants are busier than ever – although an issue is the exodus of hospitality staff, which James puts more down to individuals having the space and time to consider their job prospects over the various lockdowns, rather than just Brexit. He argues aspects of the food scene need to change to entice people back, including customers being willing to pay more for what they’re getting. “You go to France and have a croissant or a coffee, it’s twice the price it is over here. You don’t question it when you’re on holiday, because that’s the price,” says James. “For too long, we’ve been price-sensitive over everything. “We’re too price-sensitive in terms of food in our supermarkets. We constantly strive for cheaper and cheaper food and as much as it’s great to have value, for sure, you can’t continue that spiral down. At some point, you’re going to hit rock bottom.” Whatever the difficulties – be it prices or people expecting strawberries in December – James believes he is “in the business to help others – our job is to serve and help and provide a service for other people, for them to enjoy themselves. That’s what we do. That’s why we work the hours we work” – and he loves it. Feeding people is “a magical thing” – and if there’s butter involved, all the better. ■ Butter: Comforting, Delicious, Versatile - Over 130 Recipes Celebrating Butter by James Martin, published by Quadrille, priced £22.

Jane Haase finds out about their favourite comfort food and plans for Christmas If you want a feast of food inspiration, John Torode and Lisa faulkner serve up plenty of simple supper ideas in their latest series of John & Lisa’s Weekend Kitchen. Chef and MasterChef judge John met actress Lisa on the celebrity version of the show 10 years ago, when she won the top prize. And the pair married in 2019. As well as cooking some hearty comfort food, John, 56, and Lisa, 49. will also be getting ready for Christmas and have a line up of irresistible ideas for the festive season. Here the pair tell us about working together and their Christmas plans. You both have such busy schedules – how does it feel to be working together again? L: I love working with John, it’s great. Our schedules have been really busy, so it’s been nice to actually see him. J: We always want to make sure we do food that people can cook at home, and the idea of this series is that we’re there in your home and just trying to help you through when it’s getting a bit cold, you’re feeling a bit down, and Christmas may feel a little bit too much of a burden. And it’s brilliant! I love working with Lisa. John and Lisa on their Weekend Kitchen show How do you continue to come up with fresh ideas? Does it ever feel like work? J: Never! I have to say I am really, really lucky. The way that this is filmed is that we actually go into the studio, the cameras roll and we cook the recipe all the way through as if we were cooking at home. We don’t stop and start, we don’t change direction, we just cook the recipe! L: We’re lucky in the fact that we love food, so we’re constantly thinking of ideas. We could be watching a film and think, ‘Oh that could be good’. Do you ever disagree over ideas? L: Yeah. John will often say something like, ‘I think we should cook quail, they’re really easy to cook and nobody cooks them really’ and I’m like, ‘No’ [Laughs]. Our viewers wouldn’t be bothered about a quail. I feel like I’m the ‘mum viewer’ person and he’s the chef – obviously he is, but sometimes he can be ambitious with his ideas. Have yours and other people’s eating habits changed since the pandemic? L: Not really, apart from the fact we couldn’t eat out, but we’ve always cooked a lot at home and from scratch. During the pandemic, we cooked every day and made a daily video, so our eating habits didn’t change at all, but it’s lovely to go back into restaurants. The entertainment and hospitality industry suffered during the pandemic. Do you feel lucky you had stuff to keep you busy? L: We were lucky as we did two series of the show. We also cooked for free on Instagram – we made videos to keep ourselves sane and to give people entertainment. J: On the first day of lockdown, Lisa said, ‘I can’t do nothing.’ And she was the one who instigated doing the videos on Instagram every single day. We did 75 videos, back to back for all those weeks and it was the thing that saved us, really. I think it saved us mentally… This series focuses on comfort foods. What do you enjoy most about the winter? J: As an Aussie, we didn’t really have seasons, so I really appreciate them. The best seafood is in winter – amazing scallops and beautiful prawns – the water’s cold, amazing fish like sea bass and turbot and cod and smoked haddock and all those sorts of things are great this time of year. Smoked haddock chowder – that’s wintery, warming deliciousness! L: I’m not very good with winter, I don’t enjoy it much. I can’t handle the light going and the darker nights. I try to embrace it and go, ‘Lovely slow-cooking recipes’. I’ll light all my candles and sit in my pyjamas. And that does work – I’m very good at getting myself out of that darkness, but it is really not my favourite time of year. What’s your go-to easy comfort food that you and your family enjoy most? L: Mac and cheese – I just love it. My daughter loves it. You can pimp it up with bacon, chorizo, leeks, tomatoes and breadcrumbs on top and it can be a whole meal. Are you looking forward to this festive season? L: Yes, much more than last year – last year was so depressing. John and I had a lovely Christmas, but it was just me and him because of being a blended family – we have our kids one year and not the next. Usually we’d go away or do something different, but we couldn’t because of the lockdown. We’d planned to see the family but that all changed. So it will be lovely to be able to have all our family round and make Christmas dinner. J: I’m looking forward to presents as always! We always have a big Christmas and this Christmas we have all the children so hopefully there Making a meal of it: John Torode and Lisa Faulkner won’t be any restrictions and we can have everybody together. Who makes the Christmas dinner? L: We both do. We get up and cook and laugh. John will have champagne and I’ll have a glass of wine. We’ll put Christmas music on and we love it – we’re in our happy place. What is the food or drink that means Christmas to you? L: Stuffing – John makes amazing stuffing and that means Christmas. In November, I make mincemeat, Christmas puddings and Christmas cake for my dad and one for us. The smell of Christmas cake means Christmas to me also. J: Bread sauce and stuffing for me. What’s on your Christmas list this year? L: On my Christmas list will always be a new pair of pyjamas. J: I’ve almost finished my Christmas shopping! I always put bows around my presents each Christmas, and I always attach a bauble too. Everybody gets a bauble on their present! I do it so my children will have a collection of baubles over the years that they will then have of their own when they leave home. ■ John & Lisa’s Weekend Kitchen is on Saturdays, ITV at 11.40am

38 DERBY TELEGRAPH SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2021 @derbyshire_live Your Home IT’S the most important dinner date in the diary – and it takes a great deal of swank to make the festive table look so splendid. More a theatrical production than a Christmas chore, the good news is, showcasing your creative flair to sync with the food has never been easier, with such a wealth of wonder within reach. “Tablescaping is the latest buzzword in interiors when it comes to dining in style,” says Emmie Brookman, interiors expert and creative director of Silver Mushroom. “If you’re hosting a festive feast this Christmas, the table should be as memorable as the menu. “The first and most important thing to consider is the mood. Are you hosting a large family event, or an intimate affair? Think about what space you have, where you want everyone to sit, and who you’re catering for. If there are children in your party, the theme will certainly be different to an adultsonly soiree,” suggests Emmie. Such is the expectation, Johnny Roxburgh, ‘party architect’ to the Royals, says he can feel the festive cheer. “Christmas is my favourite time of the year to host and this year, celebrations are back!” The party planner says Habitat is his go-to for festive tableware, Christmas decorations and winter accessories: “Its product range provides a wonderful way to wow guests, without breaking the bank. “In this day and age, most people have enough matching tableware for a small get-together, but when numbers tend to increase for Christmas, it’s fun to mix it all up. As long as it’s reasonably coordinating, it can look much more festive and not overly formal,” says Johnny. However, if you’re happy and willing to “twin your table with the rest of your decor”, as Emmie puts it, then keeping your theme consistent is important. “If you have a red and gold theme running throughout your home, for example, it’s probably best not to contrast it with blues and silvers. Your table decor should be an extension of the rest of your home.” Fever-tree Christmas crackers gin & tonic pairing, £8 each (5cl x 150ml) or box of 4, £32, John Lewis Label set of 4 deer name place holders, £32.45, silver Mushroom InterIors experts share top tablescapIng tIps to make chrIstmas dInner extra specIal. by Sam Wylie-HarriS Feast youR eyes She also says to make sure every accessory adds something to your table, “whether that be personalised name cards, or statement serving plates”. Practical and on point, to save your dining table from any spillages: “Dress it with a tablecloth and table runner in contrasting colours,” suggests Emmie. “If your theme is gold and white, for example, choose a white tablecloth with a gold ner, and add in splashes of both col- runours through your accessory choices, such as place settings, nap- kins, cutlery, and crackers.” Another neat idea for napkins, Jes- sica Hanley, founder of Piglet in Bed, Right: habitat Country Manor 4 piece brass cutters, £6, habitat LeFt: Broste smoke red wine glasses, set of 4, £48, champagne glasses, set of 4, £44, tumbler glasses, set of 4, £32, Silver Mushroom suggests adding seasonal winter flowers like holly, dried oranges or berries to your place settings, for an extra special touch. “Tie these to your napkins with some natural twine or string, to bring a burst of nature in from the outdoors, and pull your festive tablescape together.” Short on napkin rings or holders? Johnny says you can give napkins a really professional finish with a few simple updates. “Firstly, I like to spray mine with a deli- cious scent that matches the Christmas ambience. Habitat has a Hyacinth and White Birch room spray (£7) that’s perfect, and when your guests shake out the napkin, it will emit a refreshing fragrance. “Then, I handroll the napkins before tying them with coloured ribbon – choose whatever colour best matches your table scheme – and you can even tie on a little decoration or mini bauble.” To create a more pared-back look, Emily Dunstan, home buyer at Heal’s, says to opt for a palette of earthy, natural tones, and focus on building texture to make the most impact. “Add greenery with sprigs of holly, fresh rosemary or fragrant fir branches, to create a scene that all your senses can enjoy,” she notes. “For the dinnerware, keep to a simple white palette and look for hand-glazed ceramic pieces, such as the Nordic Sand collection. “To finish, mix different heights of pillar candles along the table, before filling a vase with fresh pinecones, baubles and fairy lights as an BeLoW: Star embellished velvet table runner, from £24, set of 4 glitter placemats and coasters set, £22, 12-piece Sloane dinner set, £60.

I’m standing on an open-air platform 1,271 feet above ground, near the top of skyscraper 30 Hudson Yards – on Manhattan’s West Side – New York’s newest attraction, City Climb (tickets $185/£137.90). After clambering 161 steps at a 45-degree incline along the exterior of the glass building – in a harness – I now have the chance to lean out from the building and look down. Below, I can see people visiting edge, the highest outdoor sky deck in the Western Hemisphere. Slowly, my palms start to feel less clammy – it’s like I’m acclimatising to being so high up and exposed. Next up, though, is the biggest challenge. I take a deep breath and squat down into my harness at the edge of the platform. Pushing with my feet, I lean back, and fling my arms out, the empire State Building glimmering behind me in the November sunshine. It’s only for a few seconds, but I’ve never felt anything like it. Knowing you’re currently higher than anyone else in New York City, it’s like you’re suddenly suspended in the centre of the world. When we landed at JFK just over 24 hours earlier, it was a historic moment. Since March last year, most UK nationals have been unable to fly to the US – but on November 8, the travel ban was lifted for all travellers who are double jabbed. To celebrate, Virgin Atlantic and British Airways organised a dual take-off from parallel runways at Heathrow. Seeing flight BA001 soaring alongside us nearly brings me to tears after hearing stories of fellow passengers flying out to meet grandchildren for the first time. In many ways, the sounds, smells and sights of New York are just the same as when I last visited 12 years ago. I revel in hearing yellow taxis tooting their horns, am mesmerised by the colours of Central Park’s trees as I cycle amongst the groups of morning joggers, and find insanely The UniTed STaTeS haS re-opened To BriTiSh ToUriSTS, So GeorGia HumpHreys caTcheS Up wiTh new York NEED TO KNOW Times Square – still relatively quiet Central Park on a bright autumn morning ■ Virgin Atlantic (; 0344 8747 747) flies direct between London Heathrow and New York JFK from £358.72 per person. ■ Rooms at the Pendry Manhattan West (; +1 212 933 7000) start from 625/£465 plus tax per night. Skating in Bryant Park tasty bagels once again (try one oozing with crispy bacon, egg, and American-style cheese from Finn’s Bagels on 10th Ave, £7.80). But there’s no doubt that post- Covid, NYC feels quieter – more reserved, even. The arrivals area at JFK airport was eerily empty, and less traffic heading into the city meant an unusually speedy transfer (less than an hour). Empire State Building from Pendry Manhattan West Georgia throws caution to the wind, high over New York Many of the tourist hotspots are also much quieter than usual. In Times Square, for example, there was barely a soul taking a selfie. At Bryant Park’s seasonal Winter Village, a few teenagers are whizzing around the free ice-skating rink, while young professionals sit at the outdoor tables, drinking coffee and tapping at laptops. The dozens of kiosks are perfect for festive shopping hauls. At HoneyGramz, I get chatting to 22-year-old Michael Campese, who’s working at the pop-up after graduating from university in the summer. He hails from Queens and gives a sense of how it feels to see his city starting to bounce back; he seems positive that business is beginning to boom again. “When lockdown started, you could walk through Times Square, and there was no one on the street,” he recalls. “It was pretty eerie, actually. All the lights were on, all the billboards were on, but that just made it feel more like an apocalypse movie.” One place where you can feel a real sense of New York’s energy and pace returning is Hudson Yards – a development built five years ago, where I’m staying at the Pendry Manhattan West. There’s a buzz SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2021 DERBY TELEGRAPH 41 A stairway to heaven – City Climb at 30 Hudson Yards about the neighbourhood, which boasts the mind-bending new spiral staircase and public artwork Vessel, immersive arts centre The Shed, and a seven-storey indoor shopping mall. Highlights of the hotel, which only opened in September, include floorto-ceiling windows in the bedrooms (some suites have views of the Statue of Liberty), Peloton bikes on request, and the views from the rooftop, which opens next spring. On one side, there’s a don’t-miss-out photo opportunity in front of the Empire State Building. That evening, I head to the secret gardenthemed rooftop Gallow Green, at the McKittrick Hotel, where I order the shaved brussels sprouts, with bacon, parmesan, parsley and Caesar dressing (£14.15), and the fried calamari (£14.15). I wash it down with a signature Sleep No More (£13.42) cocktail of vodka, elderflower, butterfly-pea flowers, citrus and cider. It’s named after an immersive theatre spectacle held at the hotel, created by British theatre company Punchdrunk, which returns to the venue in February 2022. Any hints of a hangover the next day are banished with a walk on the must-see High Line, an elevated freeto-visit public park that runs for 1.45 miles along Manhattan’s West Side. It’s built on a freight rail line that worked from 1934 to 1980 (my favourite part is seeing remnants of the tracks in places) and was saved from demolition by locals and the City of New York. No reservations are needed, and there are several access points – but the northern end starts at 34th Street in Hudson Yards. Time it right and you can stroll – down to the other end, at Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District – towards the sunset, an orange glow burning through the hazy sky over the Hudson River. Don’t rush, as there’s a lot to see along the way: everchanging art projects, colourfully contrasting architecture, and 100,000 plants, trees and shrubs. You’ll lose count of the number of times you want to stop and capture what feels like a whole new perspective on the city. Knowing New York was so abandoned during Covid makes it feel even more special. I’m so grateful to be back travelling, I reckon I’d even scale another skyscraper again. 30 Hudson Yards LATE BREAKS Andorra Travel Grab Great last-minute deals ■ Andorra from £609pp: a sevennight stay at the four-star Chalet Hotel Casale in El Tarter includes transfers, breakfast, afternoon tea and a three-course dinner.

42 DERBY TELEGRAPH SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2021 @derbyshire_live TV Highlights TAKING on the role of a suspect in the dock accused of murder, at times, proved an exhausting experience for Samuel Adewunmi. He plays South Londoner Hero in BBC1’s new drama You Don’t Know Me and admits: “Some days I was really tired but I think it was one of my teachers who said some of your best work is produced when you’re tired because you have nothing left in the tank other than what is there. “Those days, as challenging as they were, were a lot of fun to do. This is something that I love to do anyway, and we were lucky to be working during the pandemic.” The four-part mini series was made in association with Netflix – the second episode can be seen on Monday – and has been adapted from criminal defence barrister and writer Imran Mahmood’s bestselling novel. It asks viewers to decide if Hero is guilty or innocent of murder. The prosecution barrister’s closing argument sounds damning in the opening episode, but Hero takes the brave decision to fire his legal representation and deliver his own speech. He tells the jury he is innocent and shares a very different sequence of events that placed a law-abiding car salesman in the frame for murder. “Hero is a young guy, early to mid-20s. He’s a car salesman when we meet him in episode one,” says Samuel. “It’s the job of his dreams I guess, he’s always loved cars and it’s something he’s really passionate about, something he has a lot of See you in court: Hero during the trial Hero is an average guy... not someone we’d consider to be on trial for murder Guilty or innocent? Marion McMullenlooks at compelling new BBC drama You Don’t Know Me information on and also something that he enjoys doing. “He’s got his family, his mum and his sister, who he provides for as best as he can. He’s got a flat. He’s doing alright for himself but nothing special. “He does have a really nice car, that’s one of the perks of work. “He’s just this average guy going through his life. He’s content, but he’s not necessarily fulfilled. He’s not necessarily happy. He’s just sort of doing his thing, plodding along every day like we all do, looking forward to the weekends.” Samuel adds: “He’s an intelligent guy but with average GCSEs, probably didn’t even do his A-levels. “Being able to sell some of the best cars in the world is the actualisation of a childhood dream for him. He doesn’t really aspire to much more when we first meet him, he’s happy selling these cars. “He gets a bonus at the end of the month and has a good relationship with his boss. It’s his haven, his comfort zone.” Samuel was born and raised in London and won the Most Promising Newcomer award in 2019 for his role in the film The Last Tree. He has also appeared on TV in dramas like Angela Black, with Joanne Froggatt, and Lucky Man. You Don’t Know Me is set in London but was filmed in Birmingham during pandemic restrictions. Series producer Jules Hussey explains: “We originally intended to shoot a week of shots in London, but that came down to a couple of days because Birmingham worked so brilliantly. We discovered that we could find Camden streets, tower blocks, all sorts of areas that really worked for us.” She says she remembers seeing Samuel in The Last Tree a few years ago and was wowed by him and describes You Don’t Know Me as Flashback: Hero and Kyra on the bus “about a man who falls in love with a woman and makes the wrong decisions”. Samuel explains how Hero’s story is told in flashback scenes as he falls in love with girlfriend Kyra (played by newcomer Sophie Wilde) and finds his whole world changing. “In one of the first flashback scenes, he’s seen cooking a dish for his girlfriend,” says Samuel. “As the audience we’re thinking this seems like a pretty decent guy cooking some pasta, he has a nice suit, how did you end up in court? That’s the question that’s on all of our minds. “As the story unravels his life is turned upside down. His whole world is shaken, I don’t think he’s ever the sort of person that we’d consider to be on trial for murder. “He tries to give a compelling argument for his innocence and to explain why he ended up there. “The story is a love story, essentially. That’s at the heart of it. With all these extraordinary circumstances, it is really just this guy that falls in love with a girl and she, essentially, is the catalyst for what happens next. Samuel continues: “They meet on a bus and he’s completely mesmer- Superman & Lois Today, BBC1, 5.40pm This new series flies on to Saturday night TV, with the entire series available to binge on iPlayer. Tyler Hoechlin of Teen Wolf fame plays the Man of Steel and his alter ego Clark Kent, while Elizabeth Tulloch is journalist Lois Lane.

However, even as Lois and Clark head back to Smallville to deal with some Kent family business, they discover trouble has followed them.

He said he’d be handing over the reins to his old Good Morning Britain colleague Kate Garraway, who is due to host the next three instalments, so it makes sense that she’s also his final guest.

TaUrUs April 21-May 21 Social plans will be cancelled at the last moment or visitors who had been expected will fail to arrive. Think of the advantages of reducing social spending.

When a friend says they don’t like surprises, you are starting to realise now they really mean it. A misunderstanding will be cleared and all is not lost. You will find a way to celebrate someone’s achievements in a way that suits you all. caNcEr June 22-July 23 If there is tension in the air, use your vivid imagination to visualise yourself in a more peaceful setting. Reading a novel or listening to music are other ways to switch off from your environment.

Social life accelerates with festive events arranged and you don’t intend to miss out. Health will improve from this more easy-going phase, relaxed pace and more positive frame of mind. Spend some time thinking about what you would most dearly like to achieve now. Discuss these ideas with friends who can offer an objective point of view. If festive plans are taking up your thoughts, don’t push these aside for another day. Get these agreed and sorted out as soon as possible.

But the manager is fully aware of the threat Port Vale pose if his Brewers side are not at their best in the second round clash at the Pirelli Stadium (3pm). Vale are fifth in League Two and expected to bring a big following to Burton for the game, with the winners reaching the third round where teams from the top two divisions enter the competition. Hasselbaink has been encouraged by the Brewers’ recent performances in consecutive League One wins and is ready for a different challenge today. “It’s a big opportunity,” said Hasselbaink. “We’re playing at home and everyone will think they’re in League Two and it will be easy. “Me, the staff and the players can’t think that. We know that the FA Cup can cause upsets sometimes. If you’re not right you get punished, so we have to make sure we’re right from minute one. “We need to really try and be at our best again. At our best, we have got the best chance at winning and being in the next round. “It’s going to be a big question for us, to see how professional we are. How can we show them respect by making sure that we are at our best. “We know that they are doing really well in their league, they have the momentum. They are feeling good, they’re winning on a regular basis, so they know what winning looks like and what has to be done to win. “And because of those type of things, it doesn’t matter if they are in League Two, we have to be at our best and we have to play well.” Hasselbaink also wants to see his side on the front foot from the start. “We want to put Port Vale under Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink urges his Burton Albion side forward and he wants them on the front foot early when they face Port Vale in the FA Cup second round today. The Brewers go into the game in good spirits following consecutive wins. Tom O’Connor is congratulated (inset) after the latest, a 2-0 home victory against Doncaster Rovers last Saturday. If you’re not right you get punished, so we have to make sure we’re right from minute one Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink pressure straight away so they aren’t comfortable, you don’t want to let them settle in,” he added. “You don’t want to give them any hope. You want to pin them back straight away and don’t let them come out, keep them in their half as much as possible. “Then the crowd will be behind you and give you more energy.” Earlier this week, Brewers chairman Ben Robinson urged Albion fans to get behind their team at the Pirelli and Hasselbaink has echoed that. “I hope the Burton fans really buy into it,” said Hasselbaink. “The FA Cup is important for the club. “We know that Port Vale will send their 2,000 allocation, we want to still outnumber them, at least, and, preferably, with as many as possible. Then, hopefully, we will have a really good atmosphere in the stadium, with the right outcome.” SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2021 DERBY TELEGRAPH 57 Sport In-form striker told to remain hungry to score By alfie burley DANIEL Jebbison has scored three goals in Burton Albion’s previous two games and Brewers boss Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink wants the striker to show he is hungry for more. But Hasselbaink believes Jebbison will face a different challenge against League Two side Port Vale in today’s FA Cup second round clash at the Pirelli Stadium. “You should never be satisfied, you should always be hungry to keep on scoring,” said Hasselbaink. “That’s what he needs to do. Every game you start with a clean sheet, you start with a zero behind you for the strikers. You want to add to it all the time. “It will be a different game for him, it will be more physical, and we’ll see how he will be able to cope with that.” Hasselbaink has few injury concerns going into today’s game, while Deji Oshilaja returns from a threematch ban. “It is a difficult decision to see if we have to change it,” Hasselbaink added. “Cameron (Borthwick-Jackson) has been playing well and offers us something different, while Lucas (Akins) has been playing well in the left wing-back position. It’s a tough decision. “We have a full bill of health. Louis (Moult) is training with the group, he is looking better and better. “Jacob Maddox is back in the group and has trained but it might be too early for him to be involved on Saturday.” In the wins against Accrington Daniel Jebbison celebrates scoring for Burton Albion. PIC: EPIC ACTION IMAGERY. Stanley and Doncaster Rovers, the Brewers finally won while having the majority of possession for the first time in Hasselbaink’s second spell in charge. And the manager is keen to see the improvement continue. “It’s getting better, it’s getting step by step better,” said Hasselbaink. “Small steps. We want to keep on improving with the ball, without the ball, with the press, without the press. “We want to keep improving, we are never satisfied.” BASKETBALL Blazers in for double challenge Derby Trailblazers are looking for progress on two fronts this weekend. They travel to face Nottingham Hoods in NBL Division One today (3pm) before returning to the Clarence Wiggins Sports Centre tomorrow against Team Solent Kestrels in the quarter-finals of the National Cup. The Hoods are eighth in the league with a 4-2 record, with the Trailblazers (6-4) fifth, having won three in a row. Derby were the first team to beat Nottingham this season, inflicting a 94-72 defeat in the L Lynch Trophy quarter-finals, and they haven’t won since. “Everyone looks forward to playing Nottingham,” said head coach Matt Shaw. “A lot of the players on both sides know each other and there will be a lot of former team-mates playing against each other. It should be a really exciting game.” Kestrels have dominated the league in recent years but Trailblazers came close to beating them this season, losing in overtime. “On the face of it, drawing Solent in the cup is a really bad draw and I can understand why people would say that, but the reality is you’ve probably got to beat them to win the cup,” said head coach Matt Shaw. “To get to play them at home rather than a neutral venue means it’s probably a really good draw and I know our guys are keen to beat them and progress to the semi-finals.”

SP:Spoke.Helpline:03332023390 Anguish for Colin Kazim-Richards as he reacts to a missed chance in the match against Bournemouth. By RYAN CONWAY • Sponsored by: When Ravel Morrison was pencilled in as the centre-forward for Derby County’s 2-1 defeat to Queens Park Rangers on Monday, it prompted some interesting questions. What was manager Wayne Rooney’s plan with the former Manchester United prospect as a false nine? Will the role be utilised more as the season goes on? And what happens with Colin Kazim-Richards? The former Turkey international has endured a tough season. After being a talisman last season in which his goals, assists and general presence played a massive part in keeping the Rams up, Kazim-Richards has not had the same impact. The striker played 90 minutes in the Rams’ opening day 1-1 draw fewer chances and loss of form raises doubts over striker’s future against Huddersfield Town, then netted a goal and scored in the penalty shoot-out in the Carabao Cup victory against Salford City. But he suffered a setback in only the second League game of the season. When riding a challenge, Kazim-Richards tore his Achilles and the injury kept him out for three months. Since his return to action in October, the 35-year-old has started only one of the last nine games as Rooney eases him back into action, and has played under 20 minutes in five of those nine games. He is yet to find the net in the League. The 11 minutes he played against QPR on Monday, as Derby chased a winner only to lose to an Andre Gray stunner, marked the epitome of his frustrations. At full-time, Kazim-Richards crouched down with his head held low. He was hardly involved, winning an early duel before drifting from the action, and the Rams only tossed in one cross for him to attack. His constant presence on the bench since his return has been surprising, considering his role last season and, in more recent times, his influence on the team when he was introduced after 22 minutes against Bournemouth. Coming on for an injured Sam Baldock, Kazim-Richards played a clever flick to Tom Lawrence for the Welshman to level the game at 2-2. Outside of that contribution, the striker won five of his 13 duels and three of his 10 aerial battles – which is not great on the surface, but the context of him having to compete for long balls skews the data. In his limited time on the pitch (415 minutes), Kazim-Richards is fourth on the team in expected goals (a chance by which a player is expected to score) with 1.4. But there seems to be a disconnect in how Kazim-Richards is being used in the team. At the start of the season, Rooney favoured a 4-2-3-1 with the attacking midfield three behind the main striker being a fluid rotation of players. As the season has worn on, it seems Rooney has tweaked the system slightly and gone with a flat 4-3-3 with the front three fluid and interchangeable. It is reminiscent of when Pep Guardiola used three attacking midfielders as strikers and had them all occupy the false nine position at some stage. That, of course, limits Kazim- Richards. The striker is comfortable peeling out wide and isolating an opposition full-back and winning the ball. He is also at his strongest when dropping deep and linking play, but constant rotations and picking up positions in the spaces between the centre-backs and deepest midfielder is not where you often find him. It is, of course, fair to point to his lack of form in the games since returning from injury. Balls would bounce off him and he lacked the burst to get on the end of crosses and make a move to get across his marker in the box. He may have been fit to return to action but Kazim-Richards was still playing his way into full fitness and, of course, no League goals so far this season will always be something for Rooney to point to when commenting on his lack of minutes recently. SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2021 DERBY TELEGRAPH 59 CKR in struggle to find a role in Rooney’s new-look set-up His role seems to be becoming less influential as the games go by and, with his contract up at the end of the season, one could ask if his days at the club are numbered. A new deal has yet to be discussed with the striker, who has been open to staying at the club even if they are relegated. It is believed Kazim-Richards would be keen to accept some sort of player/ coach role. The striker has started the road to obtaining his coaching badges as he looks towards the next stage of his career with the window closing on his playing days – though it is believed he would like to play for another season or two. The next couple of months will go a long way to indicating what is next for Kazim-Richards at Derby. He has fallen down the pecking order and Rooney’s style of play seems to be going further and further away from his strong suit. Derby rebooting could mean Kazim-Richards is a sacrifice in that department. Though the Rams only have Jack Stretton contracted through next season, they could move to get younger still up front, which would mean parting ways with both Baldock and Kazim- Richards. Kazim-Richards’ bond with the fans is a strong one. After Derby survived on the final day of last season, he could be seen starting the bounce before getting into his car and leaving. Former Rams defender Shaun Barker Wayne rooney has even made a t-shirt with the striker on it as part of his fashion brand. The striker has rightly garnered cult hero status and could certainly offer something for the Rams next season. But so often in football that status comes with a short stay. Graeme Shinnie Shinnie says time to turn draws to wins TOO many draws has hindered Derby County in their unlikely bid to escape the bottom of the Championship and midfielder Graeme Shinnie wants today’s match against Bristol City to be the start of a much-needed winning run. The Rams have drawn 10 times already in this League campaign. Only League Two Leyton Orient have drawn as many. They would happily have taken an 11th draw against Queens Park Rangers on Monday but Shinnie believes, in taking four points against promotion contenders Bournemouth and Fulham recently, his side have proved their capability to challenge for more wins. “There was a bit of frustration on Monday after the Queens Park Rangers game,” he told RamsTV. “The way we played in the second half was disappointing and we know we can be better than that, but there were spells in the game where we were really good. “We are going up against teams in the top six. Queens Park Rangers are up to third, so playing against these teams and competing like we are shows how capable this team is and the quality we have in it. “It’s a case of moving on to Bristol City now and trying to win down there. That’s our season, just a case of moving on to the next game and trying to win every one that comes along.” The 30-year-old said the players have always had belief, despite the club’s off-the-field issues. “We know what we are and what we have got,” he added. “We have a thin squad with a lot of youngsters in it but, on top of that, we have a lot of quality in the team and it has shown in the last few games. “It’s just about doing it on a regular basis. You get up for these big matches but it’s the ones in the middle that we need to start trying to dominate and pick up maximum points. “We just keep trying to motor on and pick up as many points as we can and see where it takes us. “It is a strange situation for us but, like I keep saying, it’s about trying to take three points in every game we can. We’ve drawn too many matches which we felt we should have done better in. “There have been a few where we’ve been in good positions and we’ve let it slip, which has been disappointing. “We want to turn draws into wins if we can and try and march on and do the best we can.” Sport Young Rams exit Youth Cup Derby County Under-18s went out of the FA youth Cup when they lost 1-0 to Peterborough United in a third round clash at Pride Park Stadium. The only goal of the game came four minutes before half-time. The rams lost possession and keeper Alfie roberts should have dealt better with Lewis Darlington’s low shot, allowing Kellan Hickinson to score from close range. Adebayo Fapetu had earlier seen his header rebound off a post for Derby, but Peterborough were well organised throughout and came with a game-plan that frustrated the rams. They were compact out of possession but carried a threat through Darlington and Gabriel Overton on the break, Overton was particularly impressive. Derby’s tempo improved in the second half but they failed to work the Peterborough keeper enough.
