WE refer to Historic England’s recommendation that the building should be retained on the statutory list of buildings of special architectural or historic interest, at Grade II. As you are aware, Historic England recommended listing the building on 10th September 2021 without benefit of a site visit or wider consultation, given the immediate threat of demolition. The building was due to be demolished on 18 September, requiring closure of Network Rail infrastructure, with significant lead in times. Following receipt of a listing review request on 13 September 2021, DCMS requested Historic England undertake a more comprehensive assessment of the site and building, with the benefit of a site visit. This assessment was undertaken on 14 September 2021 and we are grateful for Historic England’s summary report. ■ ■ The Secretary of State’s delist decision The Secretary of State has completed her review of the evidence, including the advice from Historic England and the review representations and has decided to overturn the previous decision to list Dorman Long Tower as, based on the evidence now available, the building is not of sufficient architectural or historic interest to merit listing under the terms of section 1 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990. The Secretary of State has carefully considered HE’s advice and the points raised, together with the Principles of Selection for Listed Buildings (2018). In line with the Principles of Selection for Listed Buildings, careful selection is required for buildings from the period after 1945. The general state of repair and upkeep of a building will not usually be a relevant consideration when deciding whether it meets the test of special architectural or historic interest. The Secretary of State will list a building that has been assessed as meeting the statutory criteria, irrespective of its state of repair. Loss of original fabric will however be a relevant consideration when considering special interest. Rarity is also a consideration, the older a building is, and the fewer the surviving examples of its kind, the more likely it is to have special interest. The Secretary of State acknowledges that there is widespread spalling of the concrete surface of the building which presents a significant repair cost and an ongoing maintenance and health and safety liability, though this in itself is not a criteria for delisting. However, Historic England’s subsequent report outlines that there is a greater loss of the building’s original fabric than previously understood, something only evident from the post-listing site visit. It is also now more clearly apparent that there have been extensive previous demolitions of key components of the original coke ovens structure, in the form of the oven batteries, conveyors, chimney, rail lines etc, which detract from the building’s degree of interest. There has also been further very recent demolition, in preparation for the planned total demolition, of which Historic England and the Secretary of State were not aware prior to listing, which has removed some panels from around the base of the tower. In addition, the Dorman Long Tower was built as part of an extensive landscape of integrated steel works, these have now been largely lost and it remains as an isolated fragment, it has no significant group value, which while not of itself definitive, does detract from the building’s interest when considered in the context of its immediate surroundings. Whilst the building does remain a local landmark, these losses do impact on the ability to appreciate the original coke ovens complex as an integrated site. These have now been largely lost and Dorman Long Tower remains as an isolated fragment, somewhat out of context from its designed primarily functional role, despite its more recent isolation and monolithic concrete form adding some aesthetic interest as a local landmark. Historic England’s original advice was that Dorman Long Tower is a very good example of high-quality Modernist architecture which could be seen as an early example of Brutalist design. However, the review applicant contends that Dorman Long Tower was being built at the same time as Brutalism was emerging as a powerful idea in English architecture through the work of subtle and considered architects such as Alison and Peter Smithson and the writings of Reyner Banham. Historic England’s site visit and further consideration has led Historic England to revise their interpretation of the architectural interest of the tower. In Historic England’s view, it does incorporate some architectural display and is essentially a Modernist design, but this is rather an emerging or proto-Brutalist design that shows an Art Deco influence and a Germanic, functionalist tradition. Upon review, the Secretary of State is not persuaded by Historic England’s original advice that Dorman Long Tower is “an early example of Brutalist design” in the considered sense, but on balance rather by the case that building’s form and use of concrete is more likely out of engineering and functional requirements, albeit accepting that the building does have some degree of aesthetic interest, particularly as a local landmark and as a rare building type, although making the point that most buildings are in some way unique, which does not necessarily of itself make them of special interest. With the benefit of Historic England’s latest advice and the evidence contained within the review request, the Secretary of State is, on balance, persuaded by the arguments in favor of delisting Dorman Long Tower as it does not in her view possesses the level of architectural or historic interest required for a building to be included in the statutory list. Having carefully considered the case, the Secretary of State has decided to remove Dorman Long Tower, Redcar, from the list compiled under the terms of section 1 of the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) Act 1990. The Secretary of State has decided to delist Dorman Long Tower for the following principal reasons: Architectural interest ■ ■ Loss of fabric: the architectural interest of the building is impacted by the loss of a significant propartion af original fabric, including: very recent demolition, in preparation for the planned total demolition, of which HE was not previously aware, which has removed some panels from around the base of the tower. Internally, the loss of original fabric and machinery is substantial, which detracts from the building’s degree of interest; ■ ■ The building is essentially a functional structure with its only clear embellishment being large recessed letters spelling out Dorman Long. The building’s form and use of concrete is considered to be more likely out of engineering and functional requirements, than being a good and early example of Brutalist design, where a more sophisticated and refined use offorms and materials might be expected; ■ ■ As a coal handling structure, the Dorman Long Tower is not particularly emblematic of the regional steel industry although it is acknowledged that it does retain a degree of significance as a local landmark; Historic interest ■The ■ Dorman Long Tower does not display any particular innovation which has gone on to be adopted more widely. Its historic interest is primarily local in nature. I would be grateful if HE could now also inform the interested parties. Kind regards, Nadine Dorries

facebook.com/TeessideGazette SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021 The Gazette 3 at Dorman Long ruling News By alex meTcalfe Local democracy reporter alex.metcalfe@reachplc.com @Mecs_LDR Dorman Long Tower A CAMPAIGNER who saw his effort to list the Dorman Long tower rescinded on appeal has shared his shock and sadness at the decision as the structure could be razed within 48 hours. Hospital worker Nick Taylor said he was “speechless” after an appeal by Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen saw the coal tower stripped of its Grade II status on Thursday. Mr Taylor successfully lodged an application with Heritage England to help safeguard the 1950s structure from impending demolition at the Teesworks site. But new culture secretary Nadine Dorries agreed with calls to de-list the structure yesterday after the mayor and the South Tees Development Corporation asked for it to be overturned. Meanwhile, uncertainty now surrounds when the demolition of the tower will take place. Officials had planned to bring it down in the early hours of Sunday morning before the listing saga unfolded. Timescales were adjusted to the “coming weeks” after the Grade II status was overturned. However, the Local Democracy Reporting Service understands demolition teams are now working around the clock to prepare the tower for razing this weekend to fit with a night-time railway closure and the demolition of three other structures. Charities and campaigners had argued the tower was a monument to Teesside’s industrial past – with hopes it could have become a heritage attraction – in line with previous South Tees Development Corporation visions. Mr Taylor said he was deflated at the decision to overturn the listing. “It is what it is – all we can say is we’ve tried our best with it,” he added. “I don’t think there is much more we can do now. “We tried to save it – I’m deflated about the whole situation. The campaigners have done their best. I’d just like to thank everyone for their efforts.” General Electric wind turbine plans are taking shape on land near the 180ft tower. Teesworks leaders have pointed to a report by engineers Atkins to back up their demolition argument. Officials say this showed “ongoing and irreversible” damage to the structure meant it could cost between £7m and £9m to secure and maintain – with concrete cracking, and “general age-related wear and tear”. Mr Houchen said the appeal to overturn the listing was lodged last Sunday – claiming it would have cost the taxpayer more than £9m if the status stood and thousands of jobs. He also hit out at campaigners. The Conservative mayor added: “Our heritage does not lie in a rotting coal bunker, our heritage lies in the people that built this great region. It lies in the structures that stand tall across the world, from The Shard, Sydney Harbour Bridge and One World Trade Centre. “That is our heritage, and to try to keep a structure that’s been left to wrack and ruin and that cannot be saved, delaying and putting at risk thousands of jobs we’re trying to create for local people, is utterly ridiculous.” Mr Taylor said campaigners would have sorely loved to have seen the building kept for future generations. He added: “We were looking at plans where the cost implications would not be on the taxpayer – it would be funding through the Heritage Lottery fund and other ways to save it. “The combined authority and Teesworks have a bigger idea of the area which is fine. I’m all for jobs – I’m not against that and it does need regeneration. “But given it’s one small area of a vast piece of land it would have been nice for the structure to be kept.” The campaigner was irked by TVCA officials saying the listing episode had cost the taxpayer £40,000 to £50,000. Anybody could have put it in,” added Mr Taylor. “It’s an open forum to do that – why should people be penalised for trying to save something at the heart of Teesside? “I think it’s a bit of an unfair pop at us about that – anyone can do a listing, it’s not just campaigners like ourselves.” Mr Taylor also claimed leaders had “gone against their word” given past versions of the South Tees Development Corporation masterplan. The 2019 document stated the “landmark structure” could have been retained and adapted as a viewing platform, climbing wall, or integrated into the heritage trail given it was near the Teesdale Way. Last week, Mr Houchen said it had always been the plan to keep the tower but the numbers had to stack up. He added: “Disappointingly, this (engineers’) report shows that all we would achieve by doing this is burdening the taxpayer with costs for something that would have to come down – at a higher cost – in just a few short years anyway, because of the irreversible damage it sustained due to it being left to wrack and ruin. “We have to be realistic and we can’t put the jobs of tomorrow at risk.” Reasons given for the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) overturning the listing were revealed in a letter signed by Ms Dorries. The loss of a “significant proportion of the original fabric” – including material lost in preparation for the total demolition – was cited as hitting its architectural interest. Substantial original fabric and machinery inside the structure also counted against its listing. A DCMS spokesperson added: “After carefully reviewing the new evidence presented to the Secretary of State since the initial listing on Friday, she has decided to delist the Dorman Long tower. “The decision is based on further evidence which, in the Secretary of State’s view, highlighted that the building is not of the required special architectural or historic interest to remain listed.” Historic England said the building did merit Grade II listing. A spokesperson added: “Our site visit highlighted the prior loss of much of the historic coking plant, as well as the likely costs and ongoing safety risks of keeping the surviving tower. “We recognise the importance of the public benefits that will come from the remediation and planned regeneration of the whole Teesworks site. We also accept, with regret, that demolition of the tower is now likely to proceed but we are keen to continue supporting local partners as works progress.” Catherine Croft, director of charity 20th Century Society which works to protect modern structures of architectural value , said the decision to delist and the building’s impending demolition was a “real pity”. “Making decisions at the last minute is not much good for anybody,” she added. “What we need are a lot more resources into these things up front so we can make much better and informed decisions about what we keep, and how we integrate it into new schemes.” Ms Croft said funding would allow thorough research and comparative studies to be carried out earlier. “It does seem an incredible pity and a deeply frustrating situation,” she added. Teesville councillor Vincent Smith set up a petition to save the Dorman Long tower which has attracted more than 1,400 signatures. He believed political pressure had been applied behind closed doors – claiming there had been “a lot of smoke and mirrors” throughout the demolition process. Cllr Smith added: “They keep on saying how it’s going to cost jobs at the wind farm, but the wind farm is about 200 yards away. “There is plenty of other space around them if they want to expand – they don’t need the space where the tower is.” Ben Houchen saturday £30,000 for every ticket in this winning postcode CF64 2TH Penarth

4 The Gazette SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021 @TeessideLive News Emmerdale actress is leaving after 22 years STOCKTON-born actress Elizabeth Estensen who plays matriarch Diane Sugden in Emmerdale is leaving the soap after 22 years. The 72-year-old, will retire after playing a key role in the popular ITV programme since 1999. Her character has been involved in numerous high-profile storylines over the years including being ripped off by her conman lover, stabbed and held at gunpoint, as well as a battle with colon cancer. She was also the landlady of The Woolpack pub for 17 years. Estensen has filmed her last ‘Four years on from losing Jodey, the DWP has still not had to answer for the role that I believe they played in her death’ Jodey Whiting’s mum Joy Dove Elizabeth Estensen scenes but will be on screen for a few weeks. She said: “For the past 22 years I have loved playing Diane Sugden - she’s kind, reliable and fiercely loyal. “However, I now feel the time has come to say goodbye. “Emmerdale will always remain special to me. I’ve been treated with respect and kindness and I’ve had the very best friends and colleagues, both past and present. I’ll miss everyone dearly.” John Whiston, head of continuing drama and of ITV in the North, called the actress “the natural heart and centre of the Sugden family”. He added: “It’s a role she has made so totally her own, bringing compassion, humour and credibility to her portrayal of Diane. “Whenever she’s on screen, as a viewer, you just let out a contented sigh and say to yourself, ‘The Queen is on her throne and all is well with the world.’” He added that actors don’t “get to stay in a soap that long” unless they are “truly professional” and a really, really lovely person”. “Liz is both,” he said. The mother of a housebound disabled woman who killed herself after her benefits were cut has lost a high Court bid for a fresh inquest into her daughter’s death. Jodey Whiting, 42, from Stockton, died in February 2017 around two weeks after her disability benefit was stopped when she did not attend a work capability assessment. her mother, Joy Dove, asked the high Court in London in June to grant a new inquest to investigate the role of the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) in Ms Whiting’s death. The original inquest, which lasted 37 minutes, determined that Ms Whiting had taken her own life. Ms Dove’s lawyers argued there were “multiple, significant failings” by the DWP when it terminated her daughter’s employment and Support Allowance (eSA) that were not considered at the previous inquest. But in a ruling on Friday, Lord Justice Warby, Mrs Justice Farbey and Judge Thomas Teague QC – the chief coroner for england and Wales – dismissed the claim, finding the original inquest was sufficient. Mrs Justice Farbey said it would not be in the interests of justice for a new inquest, adding: “It is likely to remain a matter of speculation as to whether or not the department’s decision caused Ms Whiting’s suicide. “In my judgment, it would be extremely difficult for a new inquest to conclude that the department caused Ms Whiting’s death.” At the hearing earlier this year, the court heard Ms Whiting had mum loses high court bid for fresh inquest received benefits for more than a decade due to serious, long-term physical and mental health issues, including severe pain and a history of self-harm. In late 2016, the DWP started to reassess Ms Whiting, who said she needed a house visit as she was housebound, had severe anxiety and was unable to walk more than a few steps. Ms Dove’s lawyers argued that a house visit was not Jodey Whiting, left, and Joy Dove with Jodey’s daughter Emma Bell This is not the end. I am not giving up and I will continue to fight for justice for Jodey. Joy Dove properly considered before the DWP terminated her disability benefit, which led to Ms Whiting’s housing benefit and council tax benefit also being terminated. The decision to terminate Ms Whiting’s benefit was overturned on March 31, weeks after her death. The independent case examiner (ICe), the body which investigates complaints about the DWP, later found multiple breaches of department policy, significant errors by staff and several “missed opportunities” for the DWP to reconsider the claim. Jonathan hough QC, for the coroner’s service, told the high Court in June that the coroner had called sufficient evidence to address how Ms Whiting died. “It is unquestionable that the failures of DWP staff were serious and indefensible but that does not mean that the first inquest was inadequate,” he said. In the judgment, Mrs Justice Farbey agreed and said: “It is not necessary and would not be in the public interest for a coroner to engage in an extensive inquiry into the department’s decision-making. “The fact that the ICe found numerous significant failings does not mean that an inquest should adduce substantial evidence about them. “The inquest conducted by the coroner was short but fair. It covered the legal ground and dealt with the evidence before the coroner including the views of Ms Whiting’s family,” she concluded. After the decision, Ms Dove said: “I am bitterly disappointed by the high Court’s ruling. “More than four years on from losing Jodey the DWP has still not had to answer for the role that I believe they played in her death. “Despite dismissing my application the judgement makes it clear that the behaviour of the DWP has been shocking and I welcome the high Court ruling that Jodey’s eSA should never been withdrawn. “This is not the end. I am not giving up and I will continue to fight for justice for Jodey. “Thank you to all those that have supported me in this fight so far.”

facebook.com/TeessideGazette SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021 The Gazette 5 News ‘Dreamboat Dave’ David Atkinson who appeared on First Dates is now ‘off the market’ after getting married to his new bride Maryam Atkinson No more dates for Dreamboat Dave as he ties knot By kelley price kelley.price@reachplc.com @kelleyprice_gaz A STOCKTON ‘dreamboat’ who appeared on First Dates has been taken “off the market” – after getting hitched at a stunning Maltese wedding. Ex-firefighter David Atkinson set hearts aflutter when he dated Becky at Channel 4’s First Dates restaurant in 2019. He left his date disappointed when things did not work out – but the 37-year-old has since found true love with wife Maryam. His new bride said: “I think it is safe to say he will not be appearing on First Dates a second time!” The two knew each other – but had not actually dated when the programme aired. Maryam, a former model from Jarrow, said: “I was doing my Masters and David was speaking at a conference at Yarm School. “We were making eyes at each other at the conference. “I fancied him so I sent him a message on LinkedIn. “I could tell he fancied me but we did not start dating until a year after that. “The First Dates episode had not been on TV when we met but it had been filmed. “He told me he was on the programme, I was really interested to watch it to see what I was getting myself into – and it was all good. “I was not surprised by the reaction, you can just tell he is a good guy.” The couple had their own first TV heartThrob finds true love off screen date at the French Quarter restaurant in Newcastle – and “have not been apart since.” David won legions of fans after his First Date appearance, despite giving Becky the brush-off, with Twitter calling him “cute” and “honest.” His blind date was genuinely gutted when things did not work out. “Of course I fancied him,” she told the cameras afterwards, “are you joking, have you seen him? “He is like a b l o o d y dreamboat with his eyes and his hair, I think it is safe to say he will not be appearing on First Dates a second time. his bloody shirt, his broad shoulders and his cool job.” Maryam, 35, said: “She was there for a second time, she had had that awful guy on the first date who said she was short. “There is a nice way of saying ‘you are not for me’, instead of crushing someone on Channel 4. David was a gentleman.” David proposed to Maryam on the Charles Bridge in Prague last July. They were married at the Limestone Heritage Gardens in Malta Maryam Atkinson in front of Maryam’s five-year-old daughter Sadia and guests from America, Canada and The Netherlands. They have just returned from their honeymoon in Santorini and are expecting their second daughter in January. David now works as a fire safety officer for the film industry – on blockbusters from Spiderman and Peter Rabbit to the new Cinderella film on Amazon. Maryam, who also works in the safety industry, has just finished working on detective series Vera. She added: “He makes sure stunts are done correctly and makes sure everyone is safe. “We have been able to go to America, Prague. We have been very lucky.” Female fans of the Teesside heart-throb might be pleased to know he has a younger single brother Matthew. Maryam says any eligible ladies should definitely “slide into his DMs” – because he is just as lovely as his brother. She said: “He is just like David, they are two of a kind.” Adding a TOUCH OF GLASS!... 10 year guarantee • Windows • Doors • Bi - Folding Doors • Porches • Conservatories • Extensions • Building Work • Fascias & Gutters • Vertical Sliding Windows Gallowgate Buildings, 36 Laburnum Avenue, Blackhill, Consett, Co.

However, property developer John Bradley, who owns the real estate company Ruby Housing, is planning to appeal the decision to stop him from building a two-storey, four-bedroom house in the garden next to 20 Fountains Drive. carol Foy, who lives in a bungalow opposite the proposed house, was concerned that the new build would invade her privacy and create a blind bend. On hearing that the council rejected the planning application, she said: “On behalf of the residents and myself, I would like to say how delighted we are that planning permission was refused.” ms Foy spoke at the planning meeting to raise her concerns about the development. She added: “We didn’t buy these properties to eventually be overlooked. Every corner plot around that area has the same surrounding garden. “We are going to be overlooked, overshadowed, we are going to have a loss of privacy.” ms Foy also raised the issue that if the council approved this application then more side gardens could be used for properties. She added: “It’s just bizarre that we want to take up these green areas, and we have to remember, this is someone’s front garden. “It’s not a plot of land. Are we going to have to now, when we buy property, think ‘oh that has a big side garden or a front garden, I wonder if they might be building there’. “It’s going to encroach on our Residents delighted as PeRMissiOn FOR hOUse is ReFUsed BY COUnCillORs Councillors Sheila Dean and Eric Polano life. I just think it’s a ludicrous idea to put a big building like this in front of a row of little bungalows.” Both of the Acklam councillors, Sheila Dean and Eric Polano were against the proposed development. cllr Dean added: “This is not a piece of derelict land, it is literally somebody’s garden. “my main issue is the safety. This is going to make it a blind bend. There are children walking, cycling and scootering up and down to school there. “There are cars racing up and down already. “The residents told me that cars going too fast come off the road into the grass verges.” Despite concerns about the bend, the council’s planning officers said the proposed vehicle access to the rear of the property from Sledmere Drive was sufficient to ensure visibility. They also said that they did not have any objections to the design and thought it would not ‘prejudice the appearance of the area’. It was recommended that the Planning and Development committee approve this project with conditions. However, seven out of the eight councillors present voted to reject the application while cllr David Branson abstained. There have been more than 40 objections from local residents with the main concerns being that it would not fit in with the local surroundings, loss of privacy and reduced visibility on the bend. Terence lawton, who lives at 20 Fountains Drive, submitted a comment in support of the planning application. He added: “Although we hire a gardener, this corner plot is looking unkempt and derelict because of anti-social behaviour. Pedestrians use it as a shortcut, leaving it littered with beer cans etc. “Some irresponsible local dog walkers either use the garden as a “doggy toilet” or dump black bags of excrement on the side garden, leaving us to dispose of them in our refuse bin. “We are in favour of the proposed build by the applicants and welcome the site being used for a new build rather than be left to become a dumping ground by a few anti-social and offensive local residents.” In the past, planning applications to build on this piece of land have been approved - in 2016 the council were happy for a bungalow to be built on the land. However, the project was not started and the time limit on this has now passed, meaning that a new application has had to be submitted.

facebook.com/TeessideGazette SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021 The Gazette 7 PCC cops flak over departure of force’s chief News Home Secretary Priti Patel with Cleveland Police chief constable Richard Lewis, left, and the area’s Police and Crime Commissioner Steve Turner By sTuarT arnold Local democracy reporter stuart.arnold@reachplc.com @LDRArnold The Police and Crime Commissioner for Cleveland has denied there was friction between himself and the force’s set-to-depart chief constable. Steve Turner was quizzed by members of the Cleveland Police and Crime Panel about Richard Lewis, who announced in July he was leaving for family reasons after a little more than two years in charge. Mr Lewis has been confirmed as the new chief constable in Dyfed-Powys, Wales but has agreed to stay on at Cleveland Police for another six months until a successor is found. his departure – announced just months after the election of Mr Turner – came as a surprise after Mr Lewis had agreed a contract extension to 2027 just a year earlier. The troubled force is now looking for its seventh chief constable in a decade. Stockton councillor Steve Nelson said Mr Lewis was “arguably the best chief constable” the force had ever had and he had resigned just a few months into the tenure of PCC Mr Turner, who was elected in May. he asked: “Is there a connection between the two events?” Labour’s Cllr Nelson said he had seen tension in other areas between elected mayors and chief executives and also questioned why Mr Lewis was not present at the police and crime panel meeting to explain his decision. Mr Lewis was appointed by Steve Turner’s Labour predecessor Barry Coppinger. Conservative Mr Turner said Cllr Nelson had suggested Mr Lewis was “using his family as a shield” in terms of the explanation given for his departure. he said: “Mr Lewis has made a decision based on his family and to question the man’s integrity in the way you have done is unfair.” Mr Turner insisted there was no statutory requirement for the chief constable to attend the panel meetings. he added: “That is because it is the Police and Crime Commissioner’s job to hold the chief constable to account. “The purpose of the panel since its No frictioN betweeN me aNd lewis, crime boss tells paNel inception is to scrutinise the Police and Crime Commissioner, not to scrutinise the chief.” Mr Turner said following his appointment in May he had sat down with Mr Lewis and “made plans not just for the short term but the long term”. Councillor Chris Jones, the Liberal Democrat candidate for Police and Crime Commissioner in this year’s election, said he had been assured Mr Lewis was staying until 2026. he said: “I think one thing we will agree on is it is a huge loss.” Cllr Norma Stephenson said she was “disappointed and gutted” Mr Lewis had decided to go and had “lost confidence in the whole process.” Mr Turner attempted to put into context Mr Lewis’s leaving, stating the average tenure of a chief constable at any force was about three years. he said: “If you look at Cleveland over the last 20 years we have had less chief constables than Durham or North Yorkshire.” Councillor Tony Riordan, chairman of the police and crime panel, said he had a private meeting with Mr Lewis when he gave his reasons for leaving, which were the same as in a press release which relayed the announcement. he said: “his explanation was candid and honest.” Councillor Barrie Cooper said: “If the chief constable tells me, as a Welshman, he is going back to Wales because his family is there and he has another good job to go to then good luck to him.” earlier this month the formal process to recruit Mr Lewis’s successor began with the release of an application pack for the £164,904-a-year role. Applications for the post have to be submitted by September 29.

8 The Gazette SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021 @TeessideLive News By EMILY CRAIGIE emily.craigie@reachplc.com @emilycraigie A COMMUNITY worker from Easterside has been elected as the new Ladgate ward councillor in a disappointing result for the Labour Party. Independent Tony Grainge won 362 votes, putting him ahead of the other five candidates including representatives from the Labour Party and the Conservative Party. The Conservative Party’s Lee Holmes won 315 votes, Labour’s Mick Thompson came third with 226, Independent Sharon Platt won 121, Liberal Democrat Paul Hamilton secured 14 and Independent Vic Hoban came in last with three. Speaking to the Local Democracy Reporting Service about how he was feeling after his victory, Tony Grainge said: “It feels like I can’t stand still to be honest. I am very excited. I felt like just jumping up and down and screaming there. So I’m buzzing, very excited. “Moving forward, I love Ladgate, I love living in Ladgate, I want to bring the community together. “I am a parent of four kids, I want to get alongside parents who want to raise kids in Ladgate in the best place it can be. “We are excited about getting into the sports village, we are excited to get people to live happier and healthier lives and just bringing the community together. “Not me and the council are going to put this for Ladgate, but what can we do as a community do to make this place a better place to New ward councillor ‘buzzing’ after win Tony Grainge with his wife Stephanie at Middlesbrough Town Hall crypt after being elected as the new councillor for Ladgate live for all of us.” Earlier this week, Mayor Andy Preston came out on social media and backed Tony Grainge – he said that he was an “honest and decent man” and would be “great”. Ladgate is traditionally a Labour seat, so it will be a shock for the party to come in third place. Labour ran Mick Thompson, who lost against Andy Preston in the 2019 mayoral election and was previously a councillor for Berwick Hills and Pallister Park for six years. In total, 1,046 votes were cast which meant a 25.8% turnout for the area. The by-election was called following the death of Cllr June Goodchild in July – she was elected as a Labour councillor however defected to the Middlesbrough Independent Group (MIG). Labour’s Craig Wright is the other current councillor for this area having been elected during the 2019 local elections. It is not clear whether Tony Grainge will join one of the Independent alliances, but he was backed by Cllr Antony High, leader of the Middlesbrough Independent Group (MIG). Middlesbrough Council continues to be run by independent mayor Andy Preston while independents also hold a majority over Labour in terms of councillor numbers. Following this election, there are 18 Labour councillors, twelve MIG councillors, ten Middlesbrough Independent Councillors Association councillors, three Conservatives and three independents (including Tony Grainge).

facebook.com/TeessideGazette SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021 The Gazette 9 By Toni GuilloT toni.guillot@reachplc.com @ToniGuillot89 A MAN bit off more than he could chew when he picked a fight with a Teesside jiu-jitsu world champion. Student Alex Williams was on his lunch break with a friend when he says an unknown man approached him on Guisborough High Street. The grown yob became aggressive towards the 16-year-old, shouting: “I’m gunna smash your head in” and “I’m gunna stab you down the alley.” It was at that point the multiple junior world champion in Brazilian jiu-jitsu jumped into defence mode. Video footage shows the moment Alex delivered a signature double leg takedown which allowed him to restrain the fully grown man on the ground. Speaking of the incident, Alex, from Redcar, told The Gazette: “As he got closer I saw an opportunity to defend myself and fight back, so I took it. “When the fight or flight kicks in you’ve got to choose one or the other, and I chose to fight back and I was focused. ”Obviously I was worried in case he had a knife on him because he has threatened to stab me, but in situations like that it’s about surviving and I was thankfully ready for him.” The 30-second clip – which went viral – shows the man trying, and failing, to attack Alex for a second time. “I thought after I had taken him down the first time that he would have walked away, but he came back for more so I just con- tinued to try to restrain him without hitting him. “I was in a seated posi- tion and the move just came to me naturally because I’ve drilled it a thousand times in training. “My main aim was to de-escalate the situation safely.” Eventually the man walked away and Prior Pursglove College student Alex rang Cleveland Police. “There was blood everywhere and I realised he had bitten a chunk out of my ear,” added Alex. “I went to hospital to get it cleaned and I’ve got six stitches in it now.” Alex who is trained in BJJ, MMA, mixed martial arts and wrestling at SBG South Shields says he hopes his experience encourages others to take up a combat sport. He added: “I am glad it’s raised awareness for other young people like me to hopefully inspire them to get into a combat sport or something where they can learn to defend themselves safely.” News Yob picked on the wrong guy...

By ALEX METCALFE Local democracy reporter alex.metcalfe@reachplc.com @Mecs_LDR A Jobcentre boss says teesside warehouses are seeing many vacancies – with some employers “crying out” for workers. national statistics from May to July this year estimated a record high of 953,000 job vacancies in the UK. cath robson, from the Jobcentre in Middlesbrough and redcar and cleveland, said the high vacancies picture was also being seen on teesside. Ms robson added: “I’ve been in the department for 30-odd years and I’ve not seen it like this in such a long time. “Across Middlesbrough and redcar and cleveland we’ve got three job fairs coming up in the next few weeks because employers are crying out for staff.” Fairs will take place on September 22 at Middlesbrough town Hall, with another on october 7 in the same venue. A separate fair will take place in redcar and cleveland on october 6. Ms robson believed the labour market was “buoyant” with a wide range of jobs available. She also revealed her branch had seen a lot of applications for funding for HGV/LGV licences amid high demand for drivers. Hospitality, manufacturing, VACANCIES rISE for multIplE SECtorS IN rEgIoN renewable energy and wind farms were also among sectors where vacancies were being seen. “even down to your retail, administration, call centres – there’s a lot of call centre work,” added Ms robson. “there are a lot of security jobs out there at the moment and we can provide funding for SIA licences.” the jobcentre manager said the big warehouse distribution centres at teesport had also clocked a high number of vacancies. “It has raised issues with transport links that way which we’re looking at with the (tees Valley) combined authority, Stagecoach and others,” she added. “It’s the distribution centres over there – tesco and Asda. “We’ve got teesworks – we’re going to be at the jobs fair on october 6 and they’ve just announced just over 2,000 jobs they’ll be recruiting for, “Some of them are quite skilled but there are low-level entry jobs as well.” teesside Park was another area where the Jobcentre was seeing openings. “It’s not just the pubs but the hotels as well,” said Ms robson. the pandemic hit younger people in work particularly hard on teesside, with many jobs lost. Amid the latest figure release, there has been concern about the number of people claiming unemployment benefits in Stockton north. House of commons library figures showed there were 3,890 people claiming in Stockton north in August – down on figures from February this year, but up on those before the pandemic in March 2020. Labour MP Alex cunningham also shared worries about the number of 18 to 24-year-olds claiming. He added: “the tories can make as many announcements about jobs in the future but the reality is that they are still failing our part of the country big time.” Ms robson said the pandemic hadn’t helped but she believed unemployment registers for 18 to 24-year-olds were now reducing. She added: “It did rise a lot during the pandemic – but in the last three or four months there has been a decline month on month. “normally in September we prepare for an increase (in unemployment) due to the school and college leavers. “We’ve not seen that this year.”

Under the new system there will be one ‘red list’ while all other destinations will be easier to visit, especially for fully-vaccinated travellers. From October 4, double-jabbed holidaymakers will no longer need a predeparture test before returning from non-red list destinations and from later in the month they will be able to replace the day-two PcR test with a cheaper lateral flow test. Meanwhile, the red list has been trimmed down with turkey, Pakistan and the Maldives all removed. travellers returning from a red list country will still be required to quarantine in a Government-approved hotel. a spokesperson for Newcastle International airport said: “we welcome the removal of the pre-departure testing requirement for fully-vaccinated passengers returning to england as well as the move to cheaper and more convenient lateral flow tests on day two following arrival. “we have been lobbying the Government for these changes, along with the simplification of the traffic light system, in the hope of making travel as easy as possible and to support the recovery of the UK’s travel industry. “the announcement is well-timed for the return of our emirates flights to Dubai and the half -term holidays in October. “as well as this, the removal of turkey and the Maldives from the red list will give even more choice for holidaymakers looking for a winter sun getaway.” Other travel bodies also welcomed the news. Dale Keller, chief executive of the Transport secretary Grant Shapps Board of airline Representatives in the UK said: “Greater freedom of movement for many vaccinated passengers, without the anxiety of pre-departure tests and the high cost of PcR testing on arrival, will help restore traveller confidence and set the aviation, travel and tourism sectors on what is still a long road to recovery.” In a statement, transport secretary Grant shapps said: “today’s changes mean a simpler, more straightforward system. “One with less testing and lower costs, allowing more people to travel, see loved ones or conduct business around the world while providing a boost for the travel industry. “Public health has always been at the heart of our international travel policy and with more than eight in 10 adults fully vaccinated in the UK we are now able to introduce a proportionate updated structure which reflects the new landscape.” the move was welcomed by the chairman of the commons transport committee Hew Merriman. He said: “the need for caution is clear but with 80% of our country now vaccinated UK travel needs a shot in the arm.”

facebook.com/TeessideGazette SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021 The Gazette 13 Aussie PM shoots down sub criticism AustrAliA’s Prime Minister scott Morrison has rejected Chinese criticism of Australia’s new nuclear submarine alliance with the united states – and said he does not mind that us president Joe Biden might have forgotten his name. China reacted angrily when Mr Biden, Mr Morrison and Prime Minister Boris Johnson used a virtual news conference this week to announce a trilateral defence alliance that will provide Australia with a fleet of at least eight nuclear-powered submarines. Chinese ministry of foreign affairs spokesperson, Zhao lijian, said it was ‘highly irresponsible’ for the us and Britain to export the nuclear technology. Mr Morrison said Australia wanted to boost peace and stability in the indo-Pacific region. “Everything we’ve done with the united states is consistent with the partnerships and relationships and alliances we’ve already had with the united states,” Mr Morrison told Firefighters walk near a giant sequoia tree and, inset, fire burns in the hollow of an old-growth redwood tree in Big Basin Redwoods State Park, in California World’s largest tree is under wraps FireFiGhTers wrapped the base of the world’s largest tree in a fireresistant blanket as they tried to save a famous grove of gigantic old-growth sequoias from wildfires burning in California’s rugged sierra Nevada.

Australia’s nearest neighbour after Papua New Guinea, indonesia, was ‘deeply concerned over the continuing arms race and power projection in the region’, the indonesian Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement. News of the alliance received a positive response in singapore. the island-state’s Prime Minister, lee Hsien loong, told Mr Morrison in a phone call he hoped the nuclear other buildings were wrapped for protection against the possibility of intense flames, fire spokeswoman rebecca Paterson said. The aluminium wrapping can withstand intensive heat for short periods. Federal officials say they have been using the material for several years throughout the Us West to deal would ‘contribute constructively to the peace and stability of the region and complement the regional architecture’, singapore’s foreign ministry said. French leaders and the European union are angered at being excluded from the alliance that scuppers a contract with France to build 12 conventional diesel-electric submarines for Australia. Observers say Mr Biden appeared to have forgotten Mr Morrison’s name during thursday’s news conference, which was televised from three countries. the president referred to the Australian as ‘pal’ and ‘that fellow Down under’. Mr Biden did not use Mr Morrison’s name, while he referred to Johnson as ‘Boris’. it reminded Australians of when then-President Donald trump’s spokesman sean spicer repeatedly referred to Morrison’s predecessor, Malcolm turnbull, in 2017 as ‘Mr trumble’. Mr Morrison laughed off protect sensitive structures from flames. Near Lake Tahoe, some homes that were wrapped in protective material survived a recent wildfire while others nearby were destroyed. The Colony Fire, one of two burning in sequoia National Park, was expected to reach the Giant Forest, a grove of 2,000 sequoias, at some point within days, fire what some have described as an awkward exchange with Mr Biden that undermined Australia’s significance to the united states. “usually when we speak privately, he refers to me as ‘pal,”’ Mr Morrison told the seven Network. Mr Morrison said he and the president enjoyed a great working relationship. “Oh, i didn’t pay much attention to it. i mean, these things happen. they happen frequently,” Mr Morrison told Nine Network. “From time to time, you know, i’ve been known to let the odd name slip from my memory – that’s pretty normal in our line of work, i’ve got to be honest,” he added. the Australian leader said he referred to Mr Biden as ‘Mr President’ or ‘mate’ in private conversations. Mr Morrison will visit the united states next week for the first time since Mr Biden became president. the pair will be joined by the leaders of india and Japan. officials said. however, the fire did not grow significantly on Thursday as a layer of smoke reduced its spread in the morning, fire spokeswoman Katy hooper said. it comes after a wildfire killed thousands of sequoias, some as tall as high-rises and thousands of years old, in the region last year.

16 The Gazette SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021 @TeessideLive Books My cardiologist told me if I had gone on tour I’d probably have died on stage in Southampton BoB MoRtIMeR, Gone Fishing star, Would I Lie to You? regular, one half of comedy duo Reeves and Mortimer and all-round comedic mischief-maker, reflects that his life has taken a turn for the better since his health took a turn for the worse. Some six years since his triple heart bypass operation he feels healthier than he has for years, despite not doing enough exercise and by his own admission, still hankering after a pastrytopped meat pie. Meeting him today, Mortimer, 62, is instantly likeable, witty and thoughtful with his answers. The surreal imaginations of his Would I Lie to You? stories are absent over Zoom, but the twinkle in his eye and laughter as he recalls funny anecdotes are ever-present. The man who used to have 16 sugars in his tea and still takes some ‘pocket meat’ with him whenever he goes out – Scotch egg, pork pie and Peperami sausage are among his favourites – admits that even now he’s still not great at looking after his health, although he’s down to between five and seven sugars depending on how naughty he’s feeling. “I didn’t really look after my health before and I’m not as good as I should be now. Some people seem to have the DNA for exercise and health and the motivation, while some people struggle – and I do struggle,” he admits. “I’m better than I was, but I get so bored with things. I got an exercise bike and that lasted about four months, but then I lose the will to live,” he says, laughing. “At this moment I’m in a phase where my wife and I go rambling every day.” He charts the highs and lows of his life in his memoir, And Away..., from his early years growing up in Middlesbrough and his biscuit salesman father’s shocking death in a car accident when he was seven, to quitting his job as a solicitor to take to the stage with Vic Reeves (aka Jim Moir) and enjoy success in comedy. The childhood and career adventures are interspersed with Bob Mortimer talks to HannaH StepHenSon about his recovery following his brush with death chapters on his dramatic triple heart bypass in 2015. That year, he was about to go on a Reeves and Mortimer tour, marking 30 years since they first stepped on stage together, and was a little concerned about his constant tiredness, as well as a sharp pain behind his left ribcage. “Looking back on it, I was sleeping every afternoon, I was breathless when I went to the top of the stairs or if I played football with my sons I couldn’t last very long. I just put it down to my age.” He went to his doctor for a pretour check-up, was immediately referred to a cardiologist and a few days later underwent open triple heart bypass surgery. The consultant told him that some of his arteries were between 95-98% blocked. “He told me that if I’d gone on tour I would have probably died on stage in Southampton,” he recalls. “The overpowering feeling was one of fear. I was very scared. I convinced myself that it would be absolutely life-changing. I don’t suppose I thought I was going to die, although they give you the warning that everyone gets before an operation. “But I just didn’t think life was ever going to be the same again and you start having regrets of ‘I’m never going to be able to do that’,” he says. “The reason I carp on about it Paul whitehouse You feel very vulnerable, even going out into the street...It’s true that the only voice in my life telling me to get out of the house was Paul Whitehouse BElOw: Bob was set to go on tour with his longtime comedy foil Vic Reeves when his heart condition was diagnosed now – and I get sick of hearing myself talking about the heart thing – is that when I went through it I felt very ignorant about it. I didn’t know how long it (the triple bypass) lasted or whether I’d ever walk. I didn’t know what the future held and in my own little way I’m trying to repay the doctors by being someone who people can see and say, ‘oh, you’re all right’.” He married his long-term partner, Lisa, with whom he has two sons, Harry and tom, aged 18 and 16 on the day he went into hospital for the operation. Lisa drove him to hospital after the register office ceremony. The surgery went well but afterwards Bob was scared to go out, and basically spent a month hiding away after being discharged, ignoring calls from all his friends, even Jim Moir. But his old pal Paul Whitehouse didn’t give up. Bob reflects he was instrumental in his mental recovery. “When you’ve had the operation – especially that big cut down your CRISIS OF CONFIDENCE: Bob Mortimer says he did not think life would ever be the same again after his heart bypass chest – you feel very vulnerable, even going out into the street. I was sat about a bit. It’s true that the only voice in my life telling me to get out of the house was Paul Whitehouse. He was very insistent and very persistent.” Because Paul had previously had three stents inserted into the arteries around his heart, he was the nearest to a friendly expert that Bob had. He finally persuaded him to go on a fishing trip together – which helped to reconnect him with the world and subsequently spawned the idea of the hit show Gone Fishing. “He was the first person I opened up to apart from my wife about the journey. And there’s that lovely thing about fishing. If I’d gone for a drink with Paul, all we’d have done is try to make each other laugh. “But when you go to the riverbank you make each other laugh and there’s still six hours left and you do get a bit reflective and I started to dare to ask Paul about his rehab. We both support each other with it.” Some 12 weeks after his surgery, Bob resumed the tour with Reeves, after being signed off by the consultant on condition he didn’t let his heart rate rise above 154bpm. Yet on the opening night at the o2 Arena in Leeds, his legs turned to jelly as the heart monitor on his wrist rose to 150bpm before he set a foot on stage. He just wanted to run away and hide but it was too late. The show went well, the comedy duo ad-libbing about Bob’s heart monitor – and he’s never looked back. “When I went out on that stage at Leeds when my wristband was telling me not to, that was my recovery over because then I realised that I’m probably stronger than I was before the operation. I thank the audience for giving us a good cheer to get us out there.” They’ve completed several tours since and are hoping to tour next year, as well as writing a film. “I’ve learned a lot more about (heart) disease so before I go on tour I’ll have a stress test. In essence, I’ve got three new pipes. I’m not on many tablets. I take statins and that’s it.” “I did some things after the operation that I wouldn’t have done before. It felt like a brush with mortality. I realised that you are counting down the years.” These things have included his football podcast, Athletico Mince, an interview on Desert Island Discs and Gone Fishing, which he hopes will run to a fifth series. He says he doesn’t worry about his health much now but has given up smoking after being a 20-a-day man for nearly 50 years, and changed his diet a little. “At home, I earn a ‘dirty’ meal by having two healthy ones,” he reveals. And his favourite dirty meal is “any meat pie”. As for the younger comedy talent coming up through the ranks – James Acaster, Rob Beckett, Nish Kumar et al – he says he doesn’t feel threatened. “They’re all lovely – and I’m not just saying that. I did a podcast with ed Gamble and James Acaster last week and they were hilarious. It makes me nostalgic. They are funny and they have got it all ahead of them. “ten years ago I used to wonder who our audience was, because we were used to entertaining younger people, but with the likes of Gone Fishing you come to terms with the fact any audience is just great!” ■ And Away... by Bob Mortimer is published by Gallery UK, priced £20.

facebook.com/TeessideGazette SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021 The Gazette 17 Books REVIEWS fiction freCkleS by Cecilia Ahern, HarperCollins, £16.99, ebook £10.99 HHHHI Cecilia Ahern – best known for her debut novel PS, I Love You – is back with her latest offering, Freckles. Misfit country girl Allegra ‘Freckles’ Bird moves to Dublin to achieve her dreams, but as reality sets in, she realises she isn’t exactly who she hoped she would become. A tense encounter with a stranger sets her on a journey to uncover the five people who have made her who she is, and in pursuit, she begins to uncover what truly defines her. This is fresh and timely, picking apart Allegra’s character thoughtfully without cliché or judgement. Asking boldly what and who make us who we are, Freckles teams wit and wisdom harmoniously – albeit wrapped in a slightly saccharine bow. pick of the week SnoW CountrY by Sebastian Faulks, Hutchinson, £20, ebook £9.99 HHHHI Snow Country returns to the Schloss Seeblick sanatorium in Austria, loosely following Faulks’ 2005 novel Human Traces. The clinic is as much a personality as the two main characters, Anton and Lena – he a journalist, fortunate enough to travel before being plunged into the German trenches of the Western Front, and she an impoverished, uneducated child of a prostitute Beautiful World, Where are You by Sally Rooney, Faber & Faber, £16.99, ebook £8.99 HHIII The cult of Sally Rooney is so strong – her work has been adapted into an awardwinning TV programme, and her style has inspired waves of new writers – it’s easy to forget the latest release is looking for somewhere, or someone, to call home. Through all the political turbulence, love and loss, Schloss Seeblick is a place of calm – both for the characters that end up there, and for us, through Faulks’ flawless prose. Snow Country’s pensive wandering expresses mental resilience and wistful yearning in a love story that struggles to bloom in the lugubrious period between two world wars. only her third book. Beautiful World, Where Are You is unmistakeably Sally Rooney: but magnified to an extent it almost seems like a parody. Alice – a famous writer who has moved to the seaside after a mental breakdown – and Eileen – her best friend living in Dublin with a nice but unfulfilling job – are the central characters, along with the two men in their lives: Felix and Simon. There’s not too much plot in the book – it’s more of a meditation on life when you’re in the tail end of your 20s, and every second chapter is a long email between the two women. This format hinders the flow of the book – it feels like pages of selfindulgent musings about life, sex, capitalism and more. It’s heavy-handed and has none of the emotional heart of Rooney’s previous books. Non-fiction the tranSgender iSSue: an argument for JuStiCe by Shon Faye, Allen Lane, £20, ebook £9.99 HHHHI Few books are as urgent as trans activist and journalist Shon Faye’s debut. She covers the dire situation facing the trans community today. The analysis is thorough and heartbreaking. It’s a highly fact-based book backed up with statistics and case studies, but Faye manages to write it in a hugely emotive and powerful way. ToP TEnS bESTSEllERS 1.

By kELLEY PRICE Reporter kelley.price@reachplc.com A once-thriving Stockton pub is being brought back to life – after standing empty for almost a decade. The Lambton was cindy Sheehan’s local and she was a regular there for years. now she’ll be on the other side of the bar. Together with her husband Trevor and brother-in-law John, she’s giving the Victorian High Street boozer a big facelift. They want to bring back a “proper pub”, serving “everything except food” including beers, wines, cocktails and coffee. A smart refurb is almost complete, with the first pints due to be pulled by the end of the month. There will be pool, live entertainment and they also have plans for an outdoor area. “It’s my local,” says cindy, “I live down the street and used to drink in there years ago. “It’s open-plan now, it used to have lots of little rooms. “The Lambton was one of the places you went, then moved onto the next pub. “People don’t do that any more. They tend to stay in one place. People have been stopping and looking in the window. “A lot are saying ‘we used to go there’.” According to Stockton Heritage, records of a public house at the site stretch back to 1855. The Lambton castle Hotel was also the business premises of a milliner and dressmaker in the 1860s and had a string of “colourful” landlords. In 1894, it was torn down and replaced using “more modern” building principles – to increase the drinking facilities and allow the police to better supervise. cindy, who has run The Ramsgate pub in the town among other things, said the pub had been closed since 2012. “A gentleman had started doing it up for the original reopening date for The Globe. He passed away six years ago and the building has been empty since. “There’s been wear and tear, no heating and things were weather damaged. “We’ve found a wooden plaque from around the late 1800s that we will put up. “We had to replace the front – and behind it all there was an old shop sign from years ago. “We’re looking for old photos to hang in the pub.”

ADVERTISING FEATURE The grassroots cultural scene supporting County Durham’s bid for UK City of Culture 2025 The compelling and people-based arTs projecTs in counTy durham hoping To help clinch The coveTed TiTle County Durham is in the running to be UK City of Culture 2025, a title that would showcase the creative ambition, talent, and heritage of communities across the county, while bringing transformational social and economic benefits to the entire North East. County Durham’s bid, submitted by Durham County Council with principal partner Durham University on behalf of Culture Durham, is in a very strong position indeed. The county boasts a UNESCO world heritage site, a globally renowned university and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is also first-class cricket and a calendar of world-class events including Lumiere and Kynren. But what of the grassroots arts and culture scene across the county, which the UK City of Culture 2025 judges will be particularly keen to explore to make sure the bid is truly inclusive. How does the county measure up? Alison Clark, head of culture, tourism and sport at Durham County Council, said: “Thankfully there are many well-established projects that have been bringing people together and connecting communities for decades. You don’t have to look far to find examples of ambitious and surprising creative work in County Durham communities. “The grassroots element of the bid is one of our strengths and unique selling points. We have urban areas, rural areas and post-industrial areas and there is something very powerful about this diversity. “We also have very strong traditions like brass bands and the miners’ welfare halls, which are rooted in the rich history of the county and celebrate the stories of the people who have made it their home. The bid shines a light on these traditions and makes sure they are supported, while ensuring the voices of local people are heard. The grassroots arts and culture work, which is at the heart of our UK City of Culture 2025 bid, addresses the issues that communities are faced with today while imagining what the future holds.’’ Along with 19 other locations across the UK and Ireland, Culture Durham will discover if the Durham 2025 bid has made the shortlist of six places later this month. The overall winner of the competition, run by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, will be declared next year. The winning location will then take on the baton from Coventry, UK City of Culture 2021, which has so far attracted more than £100m in capital investment to support cultural projects. To find out more about the bid, visit: www.durham2025.co.uk In County Durham, there are a number of organisations producing exciting and engaging arts and cultural activities at a grassroots level, many of which have been life-changing for those taking part and are a tribute to the county, its heritage, and its communities. Here are three examples: The Forge The Forge has a reputation for working with some of County Durham’s most socially and economically disadvantaged communities, bringing nationally and internationally acclaimed artists to work with children and young people, and school and community partners across the region. An Arts Council-funded organisation, it has been based in Stanley for 20 years and was set up in 2001 by Tony Harrington, executive director. He explained: “Our specialism is to work within schools and other agencies to ensure that every child and young person in the region has access to high quality arts experiences. Our programmes are inspired by local people and places and develop from our understanding of local cultures and local heroes, such as our schools and community programme that celebrates the work of the pitman poet, Tommy Armstrong. We work with artists, teachers, and other creatives to develop projects that inspire young people and help them develop their own creative voices. “The youngsters we work with are digitally very sophisticated, and our arts programmes recognise their digital competencies as well as helping them to develop more traditional arts skills. As well as working closely with schools, our multi-agency work focuses on engaging children and young people who have had limited opportunities to access the arts - such as those who are not in education or employment. We want to ensure that every young person is given the opportunity to experience the arts and develop their own creative pathway - which supports their well-being and their future employability.’’ One of The Forge’s proudest achievements was the UK premiere of Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezin at Durham Cathedral. The piece commemorates the victims of the Terezin concentration camp in Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia where tens of thousands died during the Second World War. He added: “Our Defiant Requiem programme was initially developed in response to the reported rise in extreme right-wing radicalisation in the UK. We began by touring a production of The Tin Ring into schools which tells the story of a young girl’s’ experiences in the Holocaust. The idea was to expose young people to the cataclysmic harm that can be caused by scapegoating others and allowing prejudice to flourish. From that we collaborated with Defiant Requiem Foundation and staged the performance at Durham Cathedral.’’ The Forge also partners Culture Bridge North East in delivering the Arts Council’s very successful Artsmark scheme. This gives schools with strong arts and cultural provision the recognition they deserve and helps them to create even more exciting opportunities for their pupils to grow and learn. NorTherN hearTlaNds Northern Heartlands firmly believes in the creative power of communities to bring about real change. The Barnard Castle-based charity operates across south west County Durham, including many rural and coalfield communities. For director Jill Cole, one of the proudest moments was a few years back when a mighty metal monster appeared in the former pit village of Willington. This was The Man Engine, described by its Cornish creators as the largest mechanical puppet ever created in Britain. She explained: “The population of Willington is below 6,000 but it looked as if everyone had turned out to see it on that June day in 2018. The mighty monument to a miner was an engineering masterpiece. People just loved it and they had never seen anything like it. “The event and the work we did leading up to it connected young people to the mining industry of County Durham’s past, but also helped people to rediscover a huge sense of pride in their place. It’s amazing what you can achieve when you get to know what makes communities tick.’’ Another highlight of the work of Northern Heartlands was a community opera called ‘Song of our Heartland’ which was produced by Opera North. It was developed in partnership with members of local communities from south west County Durham, a region with a strong heritage in mining and railway industries, as well as upland hill-farming. Jill added: “Song of Our Heartland was part of our work as a Great Place Scheme in south west Durham. We were very lucky to partner with such a prestigious organisation as Opera North ‘If These Walls Could Talk,’ a community based visual arts project commissioned by east durham Creates, brought people of all ages together. Credit: richard Kenworthy and taking part was life-changing for many of the individuals involved. The project also showed the strength of community spirit here in County Durham and just what we can achieve when we work together.’’ easT durham CreaTes East Durham Creates engages people in creative activities, inspired by East Durham and made for and by the communities who live there. Part of the Creative People and Places programme and funded by Arts Council England, the organisation is managed by East Durham Trust. Project lead Jess Hunt explained that inequality is inequality whether we are talking at a rehearsal of the community opera song of our heartland with composer Will Todd Nursery school children take part in arts activities supported by the Forge The man engine event at Willington by Paul Norris a financial level or with regard to access to culture. She said: “East Durham is highlighted as one of the areas in the country among the lowest in terms of art and cultural engagement and we’ve found that the voices of people living in places like East Durham don’t get heard. One of the reasons is that it doesn’t have a major theatre or gallery and is made up of small communities that couldn’t support a venue of this scale. People tend to travel 10 to 20 miles if they want to take part in arts and culture, to places such as Durham, Sunderland and Newcastle.’’ Never daunted, East Durham Creates has helped transform communities by getting more local people involved in creating and experiencing great art. Jess explained: “We aim to remove the barriers to help people engage with arts and culture and those barriers can be lack of income, lack of transport or a fear that art isn’t for them. We make sure that the art and culture we promote is relevant and inclusive. “One of our biggest achievements are the cultural hubs formed from existing community centres, led by and for local people. These hubs now have their own programmes of performances and exhibitions, which are shaped by the communities they serve. “Whether we’re commissioning new work from community groups or international artists, East Durham Creates projects will always be inspired by things that local people have told us matter to them - the people, stories and heritage that are unique to our area.’’

Registered as a newspaper at the Post Office. The recycled paper content of UK newspapers in 2016 was 62.8% United by our aspirations I’M not a big admirer of Gordon Brown, but his very own think tank has accurately concluded that people throughout the UK have increasingly common priorities and are “moving closer together.” (The Gazette, 16.09.21). This means that both the SNP and Plaid Cymru will ultimately fail to split up the UK because, deep down, the Scots and the Welsh know that to prosper in the modern world they are far better off united with England, the wealth creator and backbone of the Union. Only recently Nicola Sturgeon has been forced to appeal for help from the UK Army because the Scottish health service is unable to cope with Covid. How humiliating is that after all her pretence of having a handle on Covid, coupled with her empty talk about Scotland being able to stand on its own feet? In the end, common sense will defeat nationalism in our small islands, where the Northern Irish loyally appreciate the value of the English connection. Gordon is right. English, Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish want the same things: peace, security, good jobs, decent homes and rising living standards. United, these aspirations are possible for all. Divided, the weakest will go to the wall. STEVE KAY, Redcar & Cleveland Councillor Universal credit and sums involved Mr Dixon, I think your comments are both misleading and incorrect (Letters, September 16). The facts are that for every £1 earned, the DWP take only 0.37p to calculate universal credit entitlement – so for every £10 earned, only £3.70 is used as earned income. As for having to work seven and nine extra hours per week, the poor souls. And here’s me thinking I was badly done to, having to work full-time for 50 years with no financial incentives – shame on me. PAULA BARRATT, Stockton How much it costs to employ someone AS I move in the business world and talk to other employers in the area, I am amazed that they do not know what it really costs to employ their staff members, especially if one considers the present Conservative government decision to raise national insurance contributions on April 5, 2022, by 1.25%, and the council tax rise which will be granted next spring because we are told monies will not come fast enough. So the way you find out is, with employees’ National Insurance being at 12% and the employers’ being at 13.8% on all wages over £184 per week, and six weeks’ paid holiday, add to that employer insurance and raft of other items the cost is 110% over whatever you pay the staff member. In simple terms if you pay £10 per hours the true cost is nearly £22 per hour, so making labour one of the most highly-taxed commodities in the marketplace. Yet the Conservative people who stood on our doorsteps in 2019 and said they would protect us from Labour and their big government big taxes have betrayed us, the people, like any old time, Wild West snake oil salesmen peddling wares that are not fit for purpose. ANDREW STEPHENSON, Elton Village Could Royal Signals have helped out? I AM surprised that Arqiva didn’t ask the royal Signals for help when Bilsdale went off air. As a national serviceman in the ’50s, we were erecting aerials in minutes, quite tall ones too. Setting up SHF networks, operating digital receivers and transmitters at the drop of a hat. Seventy years later, with the advances made in technology, it shouldn’t have taken months to get things at least working again, even on a temporary basis.

22 The Gazette SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021 @TeessideLive News Fury at ‘lazy’ dog owners PLEA OVER PLAGUE OF POO BAGS By kelley price kelley.price@reachplc.com @kelleyprice_gaz Selfish dog walkers who leave bagged poo behind have been branded “ignorant pigs” – after one couple filled two black sacks full of muck. Dog owner John Hartgrove says he and his wife made a sign to remind people to pick up after their pooches after their mammoth collection of bagged faeces at Christmas. But he says there’s now more dog poo dumped by the river at Stokesley Industrial Estate than ever before. He fears the home-made sign asking people not to throw their bags into the nearby trees has “antagonised” animal owners. Now residents have blasted the offenders as “lazy, pathetic and thoughtless”. “Who are these people who leave poo bags where there are bins?” one woman has posted. John said: “I don’t know who put the notice up along the river on Stokesley Industrial estate, but they have obviously antagonised people as there are more poo bags being dumped than ever. “My wife and myself cleared two black sacks full around Christmas time and now we have decided we will not be doing this again. “We personally take our dog’s waste to the bin on the way into the swimming baths. It’s not hard to clean up It’s not hard to clean up after your dogs and is no hardship for a responsible dog owner. John Hartgrove John Hartgrove and his wife filled two black sacks full of bagged dog poo after your dogs and is no hardship for a responsible dog owner.” One woman added: “I can’t understand why people bag it then can’t be bothered to bin it. Pathetic and thoughtless. “It makes us responsible dog owners look bad,” one man added, “there are enough bins about so why don’t people use them?” Another says the perpetrators are “so far up their own bums” and “too lazy to pick up”. “When will people realise owning animals brings responsibility including cleaning up after them,” they added. “I think this town has a serious problem with dog muck,” another lady wrote, “our streets are covered in it, it’s disgusting.”

facebook.com/TeessideGazette SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021 The Gazette 23 James Ruddock News College group supporting their communities Hundreds of hours spent helping good causes are now being added up by staff and students across the education Training Collective (etc.). The college group has signed up to a national campaign encouraging people to support their local communities. The Good for Me Good for Fe campaign aims to generate £1m of social value via a sustainable programme of community action including volunteering, fundraising and charitable partnerships. no stranger to doing their bit for their communities, the etc. colleges were happy to get on board. “I believe everybody at some point in their life should do some form of volunteering,” said James ruddock, stockton riverside College’s course leader for professional programmes. Volunteering up to 90 hours a month as a special chief inspector with Cleveland Police and a driving force behind the launch of a new water safety charity, he said: “For me, it is enjoyable and a privilege to be in a position where you are able to help people.” now supported by its own small team of volunteers, Tees river rescue aims to preserve and protect lives on the Tees by deploying a river rescue craft and carrying out safety patrols. James, 35, of Middesbrough, said: “I get a lot of satisfaction knowing that we have made a difference and that can be quite grounding and humbling.” Once again heading into her busiest time of year, neTA Training’s centre support manager sian Cameron is also well known for putting the voluntary hours in, as Poppy Appeal organiser for Hartlepool. For her, it means limitless hours spent manning the stands, delivering poppies across the borough and seeing her home in Wolviston full to bursting with red paper flowers. entering her 12th year at the helm, sian’s efforts were recently recognised using their spare time for good causes by Hartlepool Council, named Honorary Freewoman of the Borough. “It’s good to be able to give back to the community,” she said. “Volunteering or doing something for others ultimately gives you a sense of pride, knowing what you have done is helping those around you.” Counting up the time she dedicates to the Poppy Appeal alone each year, she said: “It works out about 900 hours.” Also giving many more hours to helping those in her local community, she added: “It is nice to be nice.” Putting the spotlight on the amazing voluntary work carried out by their staff members like James and sian, the etc. colleges, made up of Bede sixth Form College, neTA Training, redcar and Cleveland College, stockton riverside College and The skills Academy, are among over 100 signed up to the Good for Me Good for Fe campaign. “This is chance to highlight the fantastic work that individuals across our college group are already doing and to encourage others to think about ways they can help make a difference,” said the etc.’s Group Marketing director, erika Marshall. “While people like James and sian go above and beyond, there are so many small ways we can all play our part and together make a really positive impact.” The Good for Me Good for Fe campaign is being spearheaded by London south east Colleges, east Coast College and Loughborough College.

facebook.com/TeessideGazette SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021 The Gazette 29 Stars aim to shine on tough trip to Warriors By carol whiTe BILLINGHAM STARS and their fans will make a long-awaited short trip up the A19 tomorrow afternoon for the first Tyne-Tees derby since February last year to take on pre-season favourites Whitley Warriors in the National Ice Hockey League Moralee Cup (North). Tomorrow’s game will be Whitley’s home opener after a 7-4 victory on the road at Widnes Wild in a league fixture last weekend. What better way to start at Hillheads for the team widely predicted to take all the honours this season than with a derby battle against their nearest neighbours. The Warriors will be hoping to make it a happy homecoming by taking all the points as they start their campaign for a trophy they narrowly missed out on in 2019- 2020. On paper Whitley look untouchable – they have quality throughout the squad and have made stand-out signings in Steven Chalmers from Hull Pirates, Adam Wood from Streatham and Dean Bowater from Nottingham Lions. Their major coup, however, was the signing of Great Britain forward Robert Farmer, an outstanding talent with experience of playing at the very highest level of international hockey. Last icing for Lausitzer Füchse in the second tier of German hockey, Farmer is responsible for scoring two of the most important goals in Great Britain’s history. He scored the game-tying goal against Hungary which saw GB promoted to the elite league of the sport, then another tying goal against France the following season which forced the game into overtime and ultimately led to GB avoiding relegation back to Division 1A. With a team which could easily challenge in the National League, it will be a huge shock if Whitley do Raducanu enjoys home comforts after whirlwind success Emma Raducanu revealed she spent her first night back in the UK watching a replay of her US Open final victory. The 18-year-old arrived back at home in Bromley on Thursday, five days after her historic victory in New York. Raducanu spent yesterday morning doing the rounds of breakfast TV and radio, saying: “I think my victory is gradually sinking in a bit more. not take home all the silverware on offer this year. Billingham will face no tougher test this season. With a young side still learning its trade and no ‘superstar’ signings to boast, the challenge will not come any harder than a visit to a packed Hillheads with the home crowd expecting goals and glory. The Stars proved last weekend they will be no pushovers, however, the youngsters showing resilience and maturity to trouble perennial challengers Solway Sharks on the way to a narrow opening-day defeat. Coach Stephen Foster will look to ice a similar bench to last Sunday, barring any injuries to any of the junior Stars who open their own under-18 campaign today Tennis “Last night I re-watched the final and tried to relive a couple of the moments and remember how it felt. “It is still such a whirlwind of an experience. I have loved every moment of it. It is something that is very difficult to fully comprehend. “When I was watching it it almost felt like that was not me playing and pulling off some of those shots. with a home game against Manchester Storm. Stars’ general manager Allen Flavell is relishing a derby game so early in the new season. He said: “We were really pleased with how the boys approached last Sunday’s game and the effort was there for all to see. “Solway are one of the best-drilled sides we will face this season and to keep pace with them was really encouraging for the coaching staff. “Yes, we made one or two mistakes but that is to be expected with such a new side. “We are already seeing signs of improvement and the team will only get better with time and games. “This weekend is going to be very tough but we always look forward to “I knew exactly what was going to happen but still there were some very tense moments and I was really proud of how I came through some of those moments. “The timeout at the end, I did not realise how stressful that was watching on TV.” Raducanu has spoken of how her parents’ strict approach helped her become a grand slam champion. Of her welcome home, the teenager added: “They just gave me Stars’ Chris Sykes gets round the Whitley Warriors’ defence in the last meeting between the two sides in February 2020 COLIN EdWaRdS / CJE PHOTOGRaPHY a derby game and getting one under our belt this early will help our lads develop and give the fans plenty to talk about! “We must maintain our discipline in what is always a hostile atmosphere, stay out of the box and hope to capitalise on any errors the Warriors make. “In many ways we have nothing to lose, our lads are playing without fear and as long as we keep our heads who knows what might happen?” Face-off at Hillheads tomorrow is at 5.00.

MidLands Cup: Solihull Barons v Sheffield Scimitars (Tomorrow, 5.30). a hug when I came back, nothing crazy. my mum made some really good homemade dumplings. “Just some reassurance in saying they are proud of me is enough.” Raducanu has not yet treated herself to anything with the £1.8m prize money she won. Both the teenager’s parents work in finance and Raducanu said: “I know tennis is an extremely expensive sport so it will probably go towards that.” Ice Hockey England tour to Pakistan put in doubt crickeT England’s return to Pakistan for the first time in 16 years has been plunged into doubt after new Zealand abruptly abandoned their tour of the country because of a “security alert” from their government. Both England’s men’s and women’s sides are scheduled to play back-to-back Twenty20 double headers on October 13 and 14 in Rawalpindi, with Heather Knight’s team staying on for three one-day internationals later in the month. However, the England and Wales Cricket Board says it will make a decision over the weekend about whether to press ahead with the landmark expedition, set to mark their first international trip to Pakistan since 2005. a spokesperson said: “We are liaising with our security team who are on the ground in Pakistan to fully understand the situation. “The ECB board will then decide in the next 24 to 48 hours whether our planned tour should proceed.” The pitstop for Eoin Morgan’s side ahead of their T20 World Cup campaign, which starts in the United arab Emirates in October, rests on a knife edge after Pakistan claimed new Zealand “unilaterally” pulled the plug on their tour. It was supposed to get under way yesterday with the first of three OdIs in Rawalpindi followed by five T20s in lahore. However – with echoes of the confusion which reigned when last week’s fifth Test between England and India was called off two hours before the scheduled toss – new Zealand Cricket announced the trip had been aborted. a nZC statement said: “The Black Caps are abandoning their tour of Pakistan following a new Zealand government security alert. “Following an escalation in the new Zealand government threat levels for Pakistan, and advice from nZC security advisors on the ground, it has been decided the Black Caps will not continue with the tour.” nZC chief executive david White added: “I understand this will be a blow for the PCB, who have been wonderful hosts, but player safety is paramount and we believe this is the only responsible option.” The Pakistan Cricket Board expressed its disappointment at the decision, which came despite the country’s Prime Minister Imran Khan directly contacting his new Zealand counterpart Jacinda ardern to try to convince her that there was no security threat to the tourists.

32 The Gazette SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021 @TeessideLive Boro Warnock’s recipe for success By CraiG G Johns craig.johns@reachplc.com @craig_johns NEIL Warnock admits one or two Middlesbrough players have had to be reminded of the importance of diet and conditioning ahead of games following an enquiry into the defeat at Coventry City. Boro lost 2-0 at the CBS Arena last weekend and Warnock admit- ted afterwards that three or four players had disappointed him. While the Teessiders’ boss knows players can sometimes have off days, his veteran instinct told him there was something deeper behind the poor form shown in the defeat. After launching an enquiry and speaking to the players in question, the Boro boss had his answer. He revealed: “I saw all the indi- viduals I thought let me down at Coventry – there were two or three lads – because I knew there was something wrong. “I know it sounds daft but I knew in the dressing room something was not right with one of them. I could tell just looking into his eyes. “Then I knew straight away after about five minutes that the other two were not on their game. So we looked at it. “I know it sounds silly but we get to the hotel and they eat at 6.00 and then we have snacks at 9.00. Then we are down for breakfast and something prematch. “ H o w e v e r , some lads are eating their meal and then not coming down for snacks and not having breakfast. “So we found they had not eaten from 6.00 the previous night until midday the next day. That is going to make you a little weak. “We sometimes have to look into things a little more professionally and that is exactly what we did once I found out about these little habits. “I just thought there had to be something. They are not bad players but at Coventry on Saturday I did not recognise three of them.” Warnock's admission is a fascinating insight into the intricate levels of detail both professional clubs and players must live their life in mind of as they search for every and any slight They are not bad players but at Coventry on Saturday I did not recognise three of them. advantage in what is always a tightly contested league. Warnock is hoping he will not have to force his Boro players to come down for breakfast - but will do if he has to. He added: “I know with certain players in the dressing room before a game if they are OK. “I knew one particular lad was not himself on Saturday before the game. “So my job then was to look at Neil Warnock why that was the case. I had to look for a reason. “When I looked I came up with this reason and I spoke to two other lads who I was disappointed with and they were all the same. “You tend to not want to get up for breakfast in the morning. “You think: ‘I will just stop in bed and have lunch at midday or what have you.’ “You don’t realise you need stuff in your body between 6.00 and midday the next day. “You cannot just overload it later. You need to make sure you have that fitness and that balance right. “If we have to make them come down for breakfast we will have to do that but it should be voluntary that. “They are the levels we have to go to, though, we look at all sorts because it just wasn’t on.” With that minor issue sorted, Warnock is hoping his side can start to show more consistency having been disappointed they don't have at least two more victories on the board this season.

facebook.com/TeessideGazette SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021 The Gazette 33 Boro Siliki is fit for clash as Payero hopeful JAMES Lea Siliki will be fine for Middlesbrough’s clash with Blackpool today, with manager Neil Warnock also hoping he will be able to welcome Martin Payero back into his squad. Siliki had an encouraging full debut in Wednesday night’s win over Nottingham Forest, though there were fears he had picked up a minor thigh injury towards the end of his 70-minute runout. Warnock was pleased to learn the on-loan midfielder merely suffered cramp, rather than any serious damage which might keep him out of today’s fixture at the Riverside. Speaking yesterday, Warnock joked: “I went in to see him yesterday. “I said: ‘Cramp at 25!? What have you been doing son?’ Can you believe that? Cramp at 25!” The Boro boss’ midfield options could be well-bolstered for the weekend’s Championship clash, with hopes Payero will also be available after rolling his ankle in training last week. Warnock added: “I have seen Kevin Blackwell before I came into the press conference and he was telling me Payero trained really well yesterday. “So Iam hoping he is with us today. I have not had a meeting with the physios and the doctor yet, though. “It was not so much the ankle he went over on. The scan showed nothing there. “However, as he went over on his ankle he actually just did something to the side of his knee as a reaction to the ankle, that kind of thing. “It was that that was sore the other day and he was a bit unlucky in that sense because I probably would have played him the other night as well. “Hopefully, he will be available for me, for the bench at the very least. “I told him he was playing at Coventry and then he did his ankle last minute. “Then I told him he would be playing at Forest and he was not quite ready. “So we will just have to wait and see but I will not tell him he is playing again!” It is not as positive news on Marc Bola and Paddy McNair, however. Both, like Payero, have missed Boro’s last two, with Bola picking up a knock in the clash with Blackburn before the international break while McNair tweaked a muscle in the warm-up and was a late withdrawal before the Coventry City defeat last weekend. Both are nearing returns, though unlikely to be ready in time for today. Warnock said: “Losing Paddy and Bola was a big blow really, but the lads have coped really well with that. I don’t think either will be available for this weekend. “They both did some light training yesterday. I have not seen the physios yet, but will be having a meeting with the physios and the doctor before training so I will know more then.” James Lea Siliki should be fit Very late decision to play striker Sporar By CraiG G Johns craig.johns@reachplc.com @craig_johns Middlesbrough will not have to adapt their style to suit Andraz sporar, according to manager Neil Warnock. The striker got off to the perfect start at his new club on Wednesday evening when he produced a wonderful finish to help boro win 2-0 at Nottingham Forest - his first full appearance for the Teessiders. The slovenian striker will be hoping to follow that up with many more goals in a boro shirt, but in his first full outing it was clear he is not the same type of centre forward as uche ikpeazu. he is more of a striker who looks for runs off the shoulder of the last defender, in contrast to ikpeazu’s more assertive, oldfashioned kind of centre-forward play. however, asked if boro might have to adapt their style slightly to bring the best out of sporar, Warnock pointed to the goal against Forest as why he does not think it will be necessary. he said: “it is all about quality really. if you like at players in our squad like Tavernier, hernandez and siliki they can all spot a pass. “having those players with that ability, you don’t need to coach them to play for sporar. They do it automatically; they will see that pass anyway and they will do it. “like Tav’s pass the other night – i did not see that was on until after he had played it - but that is what these kinds of lads do. “sporar is the kind of striker who will make those kinds of runs because he is not going to go right up in the air and win Andraz Sporar things. i don’t think he woukld shirk challenging for anything up in the air but he is not natural at it. “i thought it was important he got those minutes under his belt in quite a physical game and a pressurised game and i think he thrived on that really.” Warnock noted after the game he believes asking sporar to play centre forward without Matt Crooks behind him would be perhaps too big an ask right now because of that aerial dominance. Powerful Crooks played at number ten at Forest and did a lot of that aerial competing for sporar, who was then able to look to feed off the flicks and second balls. in a similar way, if the formation ever suits, Warnock thinks sporar and ikpeazu could form a potent partnership up top for boro. he added: “i think in certain systems you can play them together. it is just working out what you are going to do and each game is going to be different really. “That has cropped up in my mind and everybody else’s really.” sporar goes into today’s clash with blackpool looking to build on his performance in the Midlands and will hope to notch his first goal at the riverside. it was only a late change of heart which saw him start at Forest, though. Warnock admitted: “i did initially tell Andraz i was not going to play him. “sometimes you change your mind and i did. i just thought after Coventry maybe it would be good to give him some minutes. “When i told him he was playing he said: ‘i am ready’. “he is a confident lad, i have not met anyone as confident as him for years.” Asked whether it was a masterstroke of psychological measures telling sporar he initially was not playing, Warnock joked: “i will say yes, it was a brilliant stroke of managerial genius. i wish! “i just had a look at how they played and thought it would suit him so i changed my mind. it worked thankfully and it was a positive start for him.”

After an inconsistent start to the season sees the Teessiders sitting mid-table after seven games, the boss is looking for another win in front of the Riverside faithful as he looks to build positive momentum. Wednesday night saw Boro win 2-0 at Nottingham Forest with new boys Onel Hernandez and Andraz Sporar scoring the goals and looking impressive overall. Both were roared on by the travelling Boro fans at the City Ground and made note of the away support on the night. Inspired by that support, Warnock is hoping the Riverside roar will help bring out the best in them again when Neil Critchley’s side visit. He said: “I think we have been really unfortunate not to have won more games at home this season but I think the fans are appreciative of the football we have played. “We have just missed that spark which hopefully the new lads will give us. “We have a hungry squad now and the new lads have helped with that. “The crowd was fantastic on Wednesday. I just cannot put into words how much it means to the lads. “You see the nutters up there singing their heads off and waving their scarves and what have you. “I think it is fabulous and it is nice when you get the right result for them and know they can head back up the motorway happy. “I had a chat with Hernandez and Andraz on the pitch. “One of them mentioned how good the fans were and I just said, ‘If you think that is good, wait until Saturday!’ “They will not have heard anything like the crowd on Saturday when they get out there. I think they are all looking forward to it. “People like Andraz, Hernandez and James Lea Siliki, crowds and atmospheres bring the best out of them. Neil Warnock says the Riverside crowd can inspire his side today Warnock: A give team Blackpool boss Neil Critchley “It gives you that extra bit you need.” Boro have had one of everything on home turf so far this season – one win, one loss and one draw. It matches the general pattern of the first seven games of the campaign overall, Warnock still seeking consistency from his side after it proved a major headache for him last term too. He knows only too well if they are to achieve the lofty goals he has for them this term finding that consistency and putting together good runs will be key. He continued: “When you have had a good result and a good performance you want to put another one in and get a bit of a run going if you can. “That is what every club strives for. This league is so unpredictable. “You only have to look at Blackpool beating Fulham last weekend, who until that point were undefeated. “Nobody would have put money on that but that is what the Championship is all about. “Blackpool can beat anybody on their day. We can beat anybody on our day. “You just need to try and find consistency and the Fulhams of this world have massive squads which help with that. “They have two good teams really and the teams who come down tend to always have that about them. “The rest of us are all battling to try and get three or four good results on the trot, but it is very, very difficult. “You have to capitalise on a good result because you see how quickly it moves you up the

That is what the good sides do, they find consistency.” On paper, Blackpool appear the perfect opponent for such a cause. Although they beat Middlesbrough comfortably in the Carabao Cup last month, Boro were muchc h a n g e d that night and Joel Lumley is likely to be the only survivor of that starting 11. The crowd was fantastic on Wednesday. I just cannot put into words how much it means to the lads Neil Warnock The Tangerines have found things more difficult in league competition since their promotion to the Championship this summer. Critchley’s side sit third-bottom and were beaten 3-0 by Huddersfield on Tuesday evening, though Blackpool did become the first side to beat table-toppers Fulham last weekend, as Warnock noted. Having sent Ronnie Jepson to watch them on Tuesday, he is in no doubt Boro have a game on their hands this weekend. He added: “You say struggling but Ronnie Jepson went to their game the other night. “When you read it in the papers it looks lopsided but Ronnie said they should have been 2-0 up easily. Goals change games, but he said in the first half Blackpool were the better side. “So you have to be careful. Huddersfield took their goals well and killed the game off but Ronnie said it was not a reflection of the game. “They beat us quite easily in the cup, showing what a good footballing side they were and they had good movement. “They have good forwards and good wide players so we will have to be on our toes.” Warnock will be hoping, much like at Forest on Wednesday his players are, like Hudderfield, ruthless in taking opportunities which come their way. With the famous Riverside roar behind them, he knows they have to capitalise on that midweek victory.

facebook.com/TeessideGazette SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021 The Gazette 3 Hotseat I just call myself a drag queen Michelle Visage is back on the judging panel for series three of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK. Georgia Humphreys found out why she adores the role From hitting the music charts with girl band Seduction to winning a whole new legion of fans thanks to starring in Strictly Come Dancing in 2019, Michelle Visage has had a glittering entertainment career. But there is one job which she is particularly famous for – being a judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race. The third series of the UK version of the reality competition lands on BBC iPlayer this month, and once again, New Jersey-born Michelle, 52, who is married to author and screenwriter David Case, will be sitting on the panel alongside drag queen RuPaul, who she met on the New York scene in the 80s. Graham Norton and Alan Carr will alternate each week as guest judges, while other famous faces who have been confirmed to appear on the show are comedians Matt Lucas and Kathy Burke, Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse, pop star Nadine Coyle and Loose Women presenter Judi Love. A total of 12 queens will be sashaying down the runway. Amongst those hoping to impress is the show’s first-ever cisgender [meaning a person who’s sense of identity corresponds to their birth sex] female drag queen, Portsmouth-born Victoria Scone. Here, we find out more from mum-oftwo Michelle. How would you sum up the new series of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK? It’s completely different, because it’s completely different queens, with completely different stories, completely different trajectories. You don’t know where somebody is going to go, and that’s the beauty of RuPaul’s Drag Race, you go on a ride with these people. How important is the decision to include Victoria Scone in the line up? I’ve always maintained that all drag is A lot of people try to fit into a certain mould to make people happy instead of making themselves happy Michelle Visage ‘SHE’S WONDERFUL’: Drag Race contestant Victoria Scone: valid, and it really is. It needs to be on RuPaul’s Drag Racelevel to get into the competition. So, we will always welcome everybody to audition – that audition tape better be very, very good! Having Victoria on this series is gamechanging. I consider myself a cis woman drag queen, AFAB [assigned female at birth] queen, whatever you want to call it – I just call myself a drag queen. And I’ve been trying to compete behind that judging table for 14 years now. It’s just part of the beautiful growth of drag, and what we represent, and we are all-inclusive, so it is important that she’s there. And she’s wonderful. You must get some amazing reactions from fans. What’s the strangest place you’ve been recognised? An odd place was at the gynaecologists’ office; sitting there waiting to go in and you see somebody looking, and it’s like, Michelle Visage says she is looking forward to watching this year’s drag queens do their thing Michelle fought through an early knee injury on Strictly ‘Do I have something on my face?’ It was one of those moments where I was like, ‘Well, I’m gonna remember this one!’. The queens get a lot of support on social media too. How does it feel to see drag becoming more accepted? I’ve been a fan of drag since I was a kid, and people thought I was crazy for loving drag. But drag, to me, has always been as viable an art form as painting, as dance. So, it’s very rewarding for me to sit back and go, ‘See, I told you! I knew it’. Drag is amazing and expressive and artistic, and it fills my soul and my heart with joy. No matter what it is, there’s going to be haters, whether it’s politics, whether it’s the arts, whether it’s your face, there’s always going to be somebody who has something negative to say. You just can’t spend too much time soaking in that. What are the biggest lessons you’ve learned in your career? I’ve learned to be flexible. A lot of people try to fit into a certain mould to make people happy instead of making themselves happy, and I have been a victim of that as well. If you can stay steadfast to who you are, and true to what you believe, what you feel you represent, you’ll be unstoppable. I’m the best Michelle Visage that there can be, and I need to just focus on that. Have you kept up ballroom dancing since competing on Strictly? I left Strictly and had to have knee surgery. I hurt my knee on the launch show. I did that entire competition with a torn meniscus. Obviously, the team knew, but I was given the OK to dance through it. I didn’t want the judges to know because I didn’t want to have a target on my back, I wanted to give it all I could. Two weeks after knee surgery, I said to my doctor, ‘When can I dance?’ He’s like, ‘You’re good! You can go dance’. So I take a dance class at least once a week.

4 The Gazette SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021 @TeessideLive Food & Drink RAISE A GLASS WITH JANE CLARE What a few days. I’ve been hot (phew, a September sun), I’ve been rained on (lots and lots). Who knows what the weather gods will be throwing around by the time you’re reading this. But those few days have also been perfect. I’ve been “out out” – not in a posh frock and lipstick sense – but in a wine sense. I’ve met real wine people at live tasting events. Bordeaux Day was a joy, and for the first time, I had the chance to taste the wines in the latest Bordeaux Hot 50. I brought you one of them just a couple of weeks ago: Château Pey de Faure 2019 (£12.99, online at Averys). I’ve now met its wine friends, all of them highlighting the modern approach adopted by Bordeaux winemakers – whether through their techniques or sustainable practices. The Hot 50 wines are under £25 and chosen to be approachable and appealing. If you’re nervous about trying new wines they’re a great place to start exploring the diversity of the region. Here are three: A sparkling, a white and a red. I love a drop of fizz and Premius Crémant de Bordeaux Brut (£RRP £10-£12, Slurp) is gorgeous. The grapes sémillon, muscadelle and cabernet sauvignon have been cajoled into creating a wine with aromas of fresh and baked apples, toasty bread and baking spice. It is fresh, characterful and zesty. One of my favourite whites of the day was Château Argadens 2019 (£12.50, tanners-wines.co.uk). It’s vegan, and the vineyards are managed in a way which increases biodiversity and decreases any negative environmental impact. It is also very enjoyable. The white is a blend of sauvignon blanc (which takes the lead role in this palate performance) and sémillon. The aromas just keep on giving; tangy citrus, especially grapefruit. A savoury edge adds depth and interest. The flavours zing and twist and delight. As for the red, there were many to choose from, but for this missive I’ve opted for Roc de Lussac 2019 (£7.75, Sainsbury’s). The wine is from the Saint-Emilion appellation where the fruitily plummy merlot grape dominates. Cabernet sauvignon and cabernet franc are the blending partners in this wine which speaks of red and black fruits, and spice. Tannins play their part in an undemanding way. ■■The Bordeaux Hot 50 list is online at bordeaux.com/gb/selection ■■Jane is a member of the Circle of Wine Writers. Find her on social media and online as One Foot in the Grapes. Jamie Oliver is an absolute machine. The celebrity chef – no longer ‘naked’, but very much clothed and still campaigning for us all to cook (stress-free) from scratch at home – is back with a new recipe collection, Together. While not all five of his children are featured on the cover (three are, we get the sense the teenagers have bowed out this time around), this book is all about feeding the people you love. With most people now vaccinated and social restrictions lifted, Jamie is betting people will be eager to host dinner parties, brunches and holiday gatherings. His 25th cookbook shows readers how to throw a big party in true Oliver fashion – without too much fuss, so the cook can have fun, too. The emphasis is on sharing delicious meals together rather than spending all your time stressed in the kitchen and it is packed full of tasty, comforting dishes that require minimum preparation. Jamie says: “Together is a real homage to the great home feast, something I have really missed sharing with friends and family over the past year. “So many people find real joy in a shared meal, have rediscovered a love of cooking or perhaps even given it a go for the first time. “I wanted the recipes to feel like a culinary light at the end of the tunnel, where food can be enjoyed and savoured. “This is about giving you an excuse to get the people you love around the table again.” As is usually the case nowadays, the cookbook is tied to a new television series. In each episode of Channel 4’s Jamie Oliver: Together, the chef will take us through the recipes step by step, making them for his Ingredients: 1tbsp quinoa; 1tbsp frozen edamame beans; 100g crunchy veg, such as cucumber, sugar snap peas, mangetout, carrots; 2 level tsps white miso paste; 2tsps rice wine vinegar; 1 fresh chilli; 1cm piece of ginger; 1 lime; 2tsps sesame oil; 2tsps low-salt soy sauce; 2tsps sesame seeds; 200g super-fresh chunky tuna steak, from sustainable sources Optional: 2 sprigs of shiso, mint or basil GET AHEAD: You can prep all this on the day, if you prefer. Method: 1. Cook the quinoa in plenty of water according to the packet instructions, adding the edamame for the last 2 minutes, then drain and cool. Take time to prep your crunchy veg – it’s nice to have a mixture, so use up any veg from the fridge – and finely slice everything as delicately as you can. 2. Muddle the miso into the rice vinegar, then scrunch with the prepped It’s (dinner) party time! Dedicated to NHS staff, the impact of the pandemic is a thread that Jamie picks up on throughout. In the first episode the chef prepares a feast for people doing volfamily and friends, so we can make them for ours. Whether it’s hosting a beautiful curry night, summery feast, or a celebration meal, Jamie’s got you covered. Jamie Oliver in an image from his new book Together Jamie Oliver’s new recipe book, Together, is a homage to the great home feast. The chef reveals why it’s the perfect time to entertain once again veg, quinoa and edamame – flavours will develop and deepen overnight. 3. To make a dressing, deseed and finely chop the chilli and place in a clean jam jar. Peel and finely grate in ginger, squeeze in lime juice, then add sesame oil and soy and pop the lid on. 4. Toast the sesame seeds in a non-stick frying pan on a high heat until lightly golden, tossing regularly, then remove. Sear the tuna for just 20 seconds on each side and edge, turning with tongs. Leave to cool. Cover and refrigerate the veg and tuna overnight. TO SERVE: If you’ve prepped ahead, get everything out of the fridge 15 minutes before serving. Finely slice the tuna and arrange around a platter. Pile the dressed veg in the centre, shake up the dressing and spoon over the tuna. Finish with the herb leaves (if using), and toasted sesame seeds. ■■ENERGY 253kcal; FAT 12.7g; SAT FAT 2.5g; PROTEIN 17.7g; CARBS 7.6g; SUGARS 2.6g; SALT 1.2g; FIBRE 1.8g Together is a real homage to the great home feast, something I have really missed sharing with friends and family over the past year.

Place in a roasting tray, toss with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and a pinch of sea salt and black pepper, then roast for one hour, or until soft and caramelized. 3.

Add the tomatoes and pineapple rings (reserving the juice), and cook for 10 minutes to soften and char, stirring regularly. 5. Tip it all into a blender, add the coconut milk and blitz until very smooth. Return to the pan, tip in the chickpeas, juice and all, and simmer gently until the sauce is thickened. 6.

Whisking constantly, gradually pour in the chocolate mixture until combined. Return to the pan and place over a low heat, then very gently bring to a simmer, whisking constantly for about 10 minutes, or until you have a custard-like consistency. 2. Divide between four small heatproof cups or two sharing bowls, then cool, cover and leave to set in the fridge overnight. TO SERVE: Sprinkle a little sugar over two of the puds, then melt it under a hot grill or using a blowtorch. Serve with orange segments, berries or cherries.

Just 48 hours after she powered to victory in the US Open, the 18-year-old from Kent was posing for photographers at the event known as ‘the Oscars of the fashion world’ as if she had been doing it her whole life. Ditching her blue and red tennis kit for a black and white silk crop top, skirt and cape by Chanel, no less, it was a case of advantage Emma. While the likes of Kim Kardashian, 40, whose black Balenciaga number completely hid her face and hands, set out to shock, the youngster was understated and elegant. The pearl belly chain brought a fresh youthful touch to her ensemble. The Met Gala, which is a fundraiser for New York’s Costume Institute, has become renowned for weird and wacky outfits, but Kim’s top-to-toe Dementor-esque look and singer Frank Ocean’s creepy robotic baby aside – this year’s was a largely straightforward affair. Back to Kim, and how do we even know it was her under there? She could have been home watching reruns of her reality show. At least nobody came dressed as a cheeseburger this time, like Style Counsel ACE LOOK: Emma Raducanu singer Katy Perry did in 2019. Emma wasn’t the only Brit at the glittering party hosted by Vogue editor-in-chief and tennis fan Anna Wintour. Actress Sienna Miller, 39, looked radiant in a heavily embellished Gucci gown, while Girl on the Train star Emily Blunt, 38, channelled 1930s screen icon Hedy Lamarr in her Miu Miu ensemble and headdress. The event which was cancelled last year due to Covid, also saw the return of the ‘naked dress’ as seen on Kendall Jenner, 25, in Givenchy and Zoe Kravitz, 32, in Saint Laurent – how on earth did they sit down in all those rhinestones? Ouch! Jennifer Lopez, 52, was one of the stars who played to the night’s theme of In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, with a striking ensemble from US design icon Ralph Lauren. If they ever do a genderswitch Indiana Jones, J-Lo is a shoo-in. But with a smile wider than pop star Billie Eilish’s Oscar de la Renta ballgown, the evening belonged to Emma Raducanu. The Met Gala was also the second time in as many days the teen has been spotted wearing Chanel. She donned a shimmering strapless black mini dress by the French fashion house to collect her US Open trophy on Saturday, prompting speculation the label is wooing her as an ambassador. It has been predicted Emma could earn as much as £100m in sponsorship over the next few years. A Chanel deal would be a pretty ace way to start.

8 The Gazette SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021 @TeessideLive Your Garden Winter wonders Plant OF THE WEEK liriope muscari Commonly known as lily turf, this is a useful ground-cover plant for sunny areas or the dappled shade you get under trees and shrubs. Give it a lime-free or even slightly acidic soil and it will thrive. It’s an evergreen perennial that forms 12-18in tall tufts of arching, coarse grass. In time, the clumps will join up and form a lovely green carpet. At flowering time – from mid-August to November when colour in the garden can be in short supply – it produces foot-high spikes of violet flowers that look like giant grape hyacinths. Invest in a few potfuls now, plant and enjoy. Then simply dig up and divide established plants in spring. to do list ■■Refresh patio pots. Replace compost and replant with winter pansies, redstemmed dogwood, heathers or ornamental cabbages. ■■The first frosts are not far off. However, before bringing tender plants back indoors, check them over for pests and give the pots a good clean. ■■The best way to ripen green tomatoes is to place them in a box with a ripe apple or banana – both give off ethylene gas that will help speed up the ripening process. Store the box in a cool, dark place. Use bananas to ripen your tomoatoes To ensure your garden looks good all year round, plan now for the colder months with topiary and evergreens Alan Titchmarsh Gardening Expert How good does your garden look out of season? Go on – be honest. Too many people settle for browned-off borders offset by shaggy lawns and thickets of bare twigs, shrugging off their dismal surroundings by thinking, “Well it’s winter, what do you expect?” But a garden does not magically appear for six months of summer – it surrounds you for 365 days a year, so why not create a scheme that will look good whatever the season? I always think of the Sussex garden of my old friend, the late Christopher Lloyd. The basic framework was created by his father Nathaniel Lloyd using the great architect Edwin Lutyens. Together they designed the backbone of yew hedges, paths, steps, paving and arches heavily decorated with topiary, leaving beds and borders like a blank canvas to be painted with flowers. If you visit Great Dixter in summer, what you’re aware of are its flowers and plants. The background topiary, stone paths and decorative steps add a richness, but as features they take a back seat – until winter, when the floral spectacle dies down and a new, sculptural landscape emerges. With everything tidied, supports taken out and bare ground forked over and mulched, suddenly it almost looks like a Distinctive dogwood second garden in the same place. If you have a well-planned garden that just needs more winter interest, you can often fine-tune what is there without major changes. Beef up borders with an outline of low-clipped box edgings, or divide them into a series of boxedged planting bays. An area of lawn Great Dixter looks instantly more interesting given a trio of clipped evergreen topiary. Try planting three different-sized spheres running into each other. A long, straight evergreen hedge can be given off-season appeal by having a peephole cut through it, opening up views beyond. Alternatively, you could clip a castellated top or grow a couple of taller towers or a pillar, crowned with a topiary shape. Even a patio can be wintered up by outlining the shape with low evergreen edgings and add- Cotoneaster franchetii ing a few pieces of potted topiary and a trough of winter bedding. These are all things you can do right now for immediate effect. Airy seed heads, large leaves and bare twigs look sensational outlined in frost, so arrange a few ornamental grasses, large-leaved evergreens and Sedum spectabile close to the house (where the frost melts last). Include as much colour as you can. A dark evergreen background of hedging such as yew sets off yellow, orange or red witch hazel blooms perfectly, and large-leaved Fatsia japonica teams wonderfully with winter jasmine on a wall. Cotoneaster franchetii offers bright red berries, while blue to blue-green conifers look stunning behind clusters of redstemmed dogwoods. Make the most of contrasting shapes to create effective winter cameo plantings. Choose from long, lean bamboo stems and large evergreen leaves that are smooth, thick and rounded (bergenia), strap-shaped (phormium) or long, oval and leathery (Viburnum rhytidophyllum). To keep costs down, root cuttings of box, rosemary, euonymus and bay during the summer and train your own potted topiary shapes over preformed frames. Keep them in pots while they are young and you can stand them in place temporarily wherever you need winter interest. If you are starting from scratch or making major alterations, it’s worth thinking architecturally and planning your scheme out to scale on squared paper. Starting from the house, aim to create a journey through the garden that wanders round a series of small cameo features. You can create natural features that look good in winter if you make a wildlife-friendly log pile with woodland plants round them, with a decent stand of redstemmed dogwoods just offside. If your garden is tiny, create a small formal knot garden – an area of gravel decorated with low-clipped evergreens planted in complicated patterns which can be filled in with flowers in summer. Clipped evergreen hedges, an attractive hardwood seat and a statue standing on stone paving complete the scene. So don’t write off your patch in winter, as it has got plenty of potential. Just think about structure and you’ll soon discover your inner secret garden.

facebook.com/TeessideGazette SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021 The Gazette 9 Topiary makes a statement SpotlightON north facing walls Yellow witch hazel Red dogwood stems set off against a Thuja conifer background “What can I plant against a north–facing wall?” must be one of the top 10 gardening questions of all time. Roses are notorious sun–lovers, so very few can cope north facing. However, Veilchenblau, a vintage rambler with parma violet and white flowers, or Mme Gregoire Staechelin, an antique climber with pink, frilly flowers are both good choices. Some clematis will also flower well with good indirect light. Go for Bees Jubilee (pink with a deeper pink stripe down the centre of each sepal), Comtesse de Bouchaud (a strong–pink with lots of flowers) or Duchess of Edinburgh (double white summer flowers followed by single blooms in autumn). For something a bit different, there are shade–loving shrubs that take kindly to Camelia Clematis `Comtesse de Bouchaud` being trained flat against a wall. Camellias look lovely in full flower and, being evergreen, will mask a grotty wall all year round. Another evergreen is azara. It is usually grown as a small tree for its lovely fluffy flowers in March, but when trained as a wall shrub it flowers even better. For a decorative and useful wall plant, how about a fan– trained morello cherry? You’ll enjoy spring blossom plus a crop of classic sour cooking cherries later. L.O.L. Surprise!

Isobel Macallister ABar Keepers Friend Stain Remover will remove most of the rust, but if the hinges are corroding/rusting, then they will be made of metal (iron) and are probably not suitable for wet areas. You need to use a nonferrous metal screw, such as aluminium, brass etc, which doesn’t rust. QHow do I solve the problem of wallpaper not sticking to a cold wall in my porch? T Coyne AIf the wall is single brick (no-cavity), it will be more difficult to achieve than if you had a cavity because the wall might be damp. I would simply dot and dab (using dry wall adhesive) insulated plasterboard to the cold wall, then plaster and paint it.

After hours cooped up inside, the chance to stretch our legs somewhere green helped keep us sane. This got me thinking about other parks I had visited across the globe. My new book Park Life: Around the World in 50 Parks is the result. Here are some of my favourites: Dreaming of DC West Potomac Park in Washington D.C. is marvellous, both for a stroll after sightseeing in the nearby Smithsonian museums and for learning US history. With the towering obelisk of Washington Monument in the middle, the Capitol to one side, the White House to the other, the Potomac River meandering by, it feels almost impossible you’re in the heart of the world’s most powerful nation, surrounded by so much greenery. The memorials to Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Martin Luther King Jr are moving – each with inspirational quotes. Go in the spring to enjoy the cherry blossoms. Polonaise in the park During the summer, free Frederic Chopin concerts are held on Sundays beside a small lake and a statue of Poland’s favourite composer in Lazienki Park, Warsaw. This tradition has been in place since 1959 in the tranquil 76- hectare park, which is also home to a palace built in the late 18thcentury by Stanislaw II Augustus. Music is played on a grand piano by the country’s top pianists and those in the audience simply find a spare place on a lawn to spread blankets or nab a bench. Listening to polonaises (a Polish dance) amid the chestnut trees, close to the River Vistula, is delightful. A Spanish stroll Valencia is Spain’s third biggest city after Barcelona and Madrid, and it has a wonderfully laid-back feel. Part of the reason for this is Jardin del Turia, which was created last century on the dried-out bed of the River Turia. In 1957, the Turia burst its banks causing widespread damage and more than 80 deaths. A decision was made to divert the river to the city’s south. This was completed in 1973 when city planners decided to turn the six miles of empty river into a splendid park, with fruit groves, woodland, fields, bike lanes and a futuristic City of Arts and Sciences centre. Beautiful in Beijing There are many parks with evocative names in the Chinese capital: the Longtanhu Dragon Lake Park, the Zizhuyuan Beijing Purple Bamboo Ming Dynasty Park and the Tombs Great places to park Tom Chesshyre’s latest book is a guide to discovering natural beauty in the middle of bustling towns and cities Lazienki Park, Warsaw, Poland Jardin del Turia in Valencia Shuangxiu Double Elegant Park. But the Ming Tombs Scenic Area stands out for its marvellously peculiar stone statues in the shape of horses, elephants, lions and camels, set along an avenue of trees by the Ming dynasty tombs. Beijing’s smog can be awful, but the air is clearer in this park to the north of the city and the statues are terrific fun – splendidly obstinatelooking creatures yet with an overall comic effect. The sculptor obviously had a sense of humour. Meeting of the Niles Not many people make it to the Al Morgan Family Park in Khartoum, Sudan’s capital. The troubled country has suffered a long-running bloody civil war, after all. However, those who make the trip to see its many antiquities, including the splendid Meroe Pyramids, often drop by this park at the confluence of the Blue and the White Niles. The Blue Nile originates in Ethiopia and the White Nile in Rwanda, and you can clearly see the muddy water of the White Nile clashing with the clearer Blue Nile. It’s a peaceful spot with a pleasant cafe. Himalayan views Rani Jhansi Park is in the Indian hill- top town of Shimla, the state of Himachal Pradesh’s capital and once the summer base of the British Raj. From its terraces are breathtaking views across the foothills of the Himalayas. The park is named after the 19th-century female freedom fighter Rani Lakshmibai of Jhansi, and a statue of her astride a rearing horse, arm thrust aloft with her young son clinging to her back, is in pride of place. She was shot dead by the British in the rebellion of 1857, aged 32. It feels somehow right that she is honoured in Shimla, with its British colonial ties. Stockholm’s pleasure island Djurgarden translates as ‘Royal Game Park’ in Swedish and it is on an island in Stockholm covering 700 acres. It is not really a traditional ‘park’ as around 800 people live there, alongside parkland, museums and attractions including Grona Lund, an amusement park that occasionally holds concerts (Bob Marley performed there in 1982). Learn about Swedish history in the Nordic Museum, the pop group Abba at ABBA The Museum, before discovering the tragic fate of the Vasa warship, which sank in 1628 on its maiden voyage and has been recovered and restored. ■■Park Life: Around the World in 50 Parks by Tom Chesshyre is published by Summersdale, RRP £16.99

14 The Gazette SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 2021 @TeessideLive TV Highlights Bread alert Last autumn fans rejoiced as The Great British Bake Off returned under exceptional circumstances and this year is no different. For much like before, all those involved in the popular Channel 4 show, which sees passionate amateur bakers compete to be crowned the UK’s best, were obliged to test and self-isolate before entering into a Covid-free bubble. In this case, a six-week stay at the luxurious Down Hall Hotel. A long time away from family, maybe. But if its predecessor is anything to go by (a whopping average of 9.2 million viewers tuned in to witness Peter Sawkins triumph last November), its imminent 12th series will be well worth the extra measures. “We were in a lovely hotel, getting really good food, I had my dog with me, and we’re eating cake for a living – so you can hardly complain about the job!” quips Prue Leith, who returns as a co-judge alongside veteran Paul Hollywood. “So even saying that I found it a little longer and I missed home seems ungracious, because there are people who have had a horrible lockdown.” “There was [also] yoga, meditating, tennis, pizza nights,” lists Paul, 55. “Prue taught floristry skills; I taught a load of people how to use nunchucks...” “And we could play boules, old ladies can play boules, which I enjoyed” restaurateur Prue, 81, interjects. “It’s about all I can do now as I can’t play tennis, I can’t go riding, I can’t do any of the things that I used to do, so boules it is!” Competition is in tents: This year’s Bake Off contestants Strictly Come Dancing Tonight, BBC1, 7.45pm The celebrity line-up has been announced, and it’s time to find out who the stars have been paired with as Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman host the Strictly launch show. A couple of the celebs are about to make Strictly history as EastEnders actress Rose Ayling-Ellis becomes the first deaf contestant, and Great British Bake Off winner John Whaite forms the first all-male partnership. The stars will take to the floor for a group dance, and we’ll discover what the judges – including veteran dancer Anton Du Beke, who is stepping in for Bruno Tonioli – think of their chances. The Great British Bake Off is back and it may be the most skilled batch of amateur bakers yet, judges Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith tell Gemma Dunn Also partaking in the “fun” are returning co-hosts Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas. All this in addition to the top-tier baking, of course. So just what can the judges tell us about the latest batch set to enter the famous white tent? “I think the youngest one was 19 and the oldest one nearly 70 – 69, so the usual mix,” Prue reveals. “Not one baker is like the other, I don’t know how the production company manages to do it! “I mean, I know that the first requirement is that they have to be fantastic bakers, but then they are TV PICKS OF THE WEEK Last Man Standing: Suge Knight and the Murders of Biggie and Tupac Tomorrow, BBC2, 9pm Documentary-maker Nick Broomfield looks at the unsolved murders of Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur, two hip-hop giants who ended up entangled in a turf war. Broomfield examines Death Row Records and how Los Angeles’ street gang culture came to dominate its just so interesting and so nice.” “The standard this year is certainly the highest I’ve ever encountered,” says Paul. “It starts like that and ends like that, so it’s pretty constant all the way through. “I think the semi-final was harder (to judge), to pick the three for the final!” “We did have very good bakers in the final,” Prue agrees, “If I had to choose one episode that I would say you have to watch, it’s the semifinal. They were so good that we had no idea who was going to win!” No disasters of note that would tip the scales, then. “There was a bit of a collapsing going on...,” offers Paul. “And there was the most overflavoured bake I’ve ever had on Bake Off,” Prue recalls. “It was unbelievably ill judged, and it was surprising because it came from a baker who was so good with flavour. It can happen to anyone. “But, and I know it sounds an odd thing to say, I actually prefer it when some of them are not so good as it’s much easier to judge if you have a few disasters. “You think: ‘Right, OK, that one’s out, that one’s out, that one’s out,” she reasons. “There was one business workings, as well as an association with corrupt LA police officers. Manhunt The Night Stalker Monday, ITV, 9pm In 2019, Manhunt chronicled the investigation into French student Amelie Delagrange’s murder, and its eventual connection to the deaths of Marsha McDonnell and Milly Dowler at the hands of serial killer Levi Bellfield. Written by Ed Whitmore, it starred Martin Clunes as Martin Clunes as DCI Colin Sutton tive ingredient week,” Paul says, last year having set a total of 30 different tasks. “And actually, it was very, very good standard. “But you’ll see how well Matt and Noel interpreted how I felt about it before it started...” “We’re both classically trained, me a cook, him a baker, so we tend to be approving of what we’re used to – the classic way to do things,” Prue explains. “I have always liked gluten-free cakes, for example, because gluten-free cakes could be flourless cakes like a chocolate roulade or something. “But where I think my prejudice shows is I was surprised that they could do so many amazing bakes with substitute ingredimoment, which was one of my signatures right towards the start of the competition, and I thought, ‘This is a good thing to do for a technical’, but in fact, they did it too well, and we were faced with 12 notquite-identical but damn-nearperfect bakes. “Well, how do you judge 12? It’s impossible; you have to rate them one to 12, and number one and number 12 are hardly any different. “They’re both sellable, perfect cakes that you’d pay good money in the shop for. “I’d much rather they were not such good bakers.” So they’re a skilled bunch – but just what challenges can fans expect to see? “Well, we have alterna- Paul and Prue on the red carpet ex-London Metropolitan Police detective, DCI Colin Sutton. Whitmore and Clunes are back, exploring a case that went unsolved for almost two decades. Based on Sutton’s diaries, it follows the police pursuit of a serial rapist, whose 17-year reign of terror left thousands of elderly people in south east London living in fear. A House Through Time Tuesday, BBC2, 9pm David Olusoga’s search through the history of a house in Leeds is up to 1913, when Number 5 is home to the respectable couple Frederick and Louisa Pryce Lewis. A look through their photo album puts David on the trail of their son Walter, who went to the battlefields of Gallipoli before returning to Leeds and a life of crime. The next residents were textiles chemist Percival King and wife Rose, whose seemingly happy family was torn apart when Percival admitted himself to a psychiatric institution. Grand Designs Wednesday, Channel 4, 9pm Kevin McCloud meets teacher Gretta, who moved to Malaysia 17 years ago with her husband Ray and two sons. Then, a couple of years ago,

Detroit skilfully weaves together multiple character arcs, building to a protracted sequence of gut-wrenching terror that draws uncomfortable parallels with the present day. Hand-held camerawork stokes tension and sweat-drenched performances from a fine ensemble cast, headed by John Boyega, are horribly believable. ents you know, using, erm...” “Butter?” Paul interrupts. “Well to cook without butter would seem to me to be impossible, but actually it’s perfectly possible and the bakers prove it!” Prue adds. “It was good for us. I learned something all the time [because] I mean the bakers are, let’s face it, obsessed with cake and baking. “They absolutely live, breathe and think about baking all the time, and so they are way ahead of me anyway on techniques and ingredients!” “I almost rely on the bakers to introduce me into this world of alternative ingredients,” Paul concludes, “I’ve been surprised!” From butter-free cakes to damehood, it’s certainly been a summer to remember for Prue, who was among a host of stars recognised on the Queen’s Birthday Honours list this June, notably for her services to food, broadcasting, and charity. “When it was announced that I was a dame, [Paul] bought me tragedy struck when Ray died. Gretta returned to the UK and went to live with her sister Mary and brother-in-law Fernando in rural Cambridgeshire, in a caravan. She has now bought part of their garden as a building plot and employed her nephew Carlos to design her a Malaysian-inspired, single-storey pavilion. With a budget of £300k and a schedule of seven months, they’re up against it. Taskmaster Thursday, Channel 4, 9pm Series 12 of the hilarious comedy game show sees QI’s Alan Davies, comedian Desiree Burch, Man Like I actually prefer it when some of them are not so good as it’s much easier to judge if you have a few disasters Prue Leith on judging Bake Off some really fancy champagne, and we had a party at about three o’clock in the afternoon,” Prue reveals. “It was everything, you know, flowers and cake, a sing along, it was great. I felt like a child with a birthday party only with alcohol!” “I’ve worked with three dames, Dame Prue, Dame Mary [Berry] and Dame Edna [Everage], and I won’t bow to any of them!” Paul teases. “But I mean, good on her. Prue’s done an amazing job, so we had a little bit of a party and then we added ‘Dame’ at the beginning Taskmaster is back Mobeen’s Guz Khan, The Windsors star Morgana Robinson and Only Connect’s Victoria Coren Mitchell take on a range of outrageous tasks in a bid to impress the Taskmaster, Greg Davies. As usual, Alex Horne is on hand of her name on the hut.” “It was on a little wooden plaque with a rope over it so I could lift it off, and I took it home with me,” says Prue. “I don’t know where I’ll put it, but I’ll put it somewhere!” Do they feel a stronger bond, having bubbled up for the last couple of years? “I feel I know these three guys better than I did Mel [Giedroyc], Sue [Perkins] and Mary, for instance,” Paul confides, referring to the show’s previous lineup. “You know sometimes you can sit in the same room as a really close friend and not say anything for half an hour and feel quite comfortable with that... “(Whereas) if you feel you have to fill that space with voices, then you know that’s because you’re slightly uneasy about something.” “So it’s more like family then?” Prue asks. “Yeah it is,” finishes Paul. “A really weird dysfunctional family.” ■■The Great British Bake Off is on Channel 4 on Tuesday at 8pm to welcome the contestants to the Taskmaster house and keep score The Graham Norton Show Friday, BBC1, 10.35pm There is less than a week before the 25th entry in the James Bond canon No Time to Die, hits cinemas. The Covid-19 delayed flick is the final outing for Daniel Craig as 007. He joins French star Lea Seydoux to discuss the movie and we’ll hear from Rami Malek, who plays villain Safin, alongside Lashana Lynch, who has been touted as a potential replacement for Craig. Also tonight, Ed Sheeran will perform his new single Shivers. The rock 2 Tomorrow, Channel 5, 10.25pm A US General (Ed Harris) takes tourists hostage at Alcatraz prison, demanding the government pay compensation to families of Marines killed during covert operations. After he threatens to release chemical weapons, an FBI chemist (Nicolas Cage) recruits John Patrick Mason (Sean Connery, left), the only man to ever escape Alcatraz, to help. The Devil Wears Prada 3 Monday, Film4, 6.45pm Anne Hathaway shines as Andy Sachs who lands a plum job as second assistant to fearsome fashion editor Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep, left with Hathaway). Andy is unprepared for the challenges catering to her tyrannical boss’s every whim. Watch out for a star-making turn from Emily Blunt (pictured right), too. The Silence of the Lambs 4 Tuesday, ITV4, 10.30pm Jonathan Demme’s terrifying treatment of the Thomas Harris novel sees Jodie Foster, left, play FBI trainee Clarice Starling, who is eager to please her superior, Jack Crawford (Scott Glenn). He implores Clarice to earn the trust of cannibal murderer Dr Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) in order to track down serial killer Buffalo Bill. 5 Whiplash Wednesday, BBC2, 11.15pm Drummer Andrew Neiman (Miles Teller, left) is determined to excel at his Manhattan music conservatory, and catches the eye of the school’s most revered teacher, Terence Fletcher (JK Simmons). Andrew transfers to Fletcher’s class, but the game of one-upmanship between teacher and pupil spirals out of control in this drama. Lone Survivor 6 Thursday, ITV4, 11.20pm Mark Wahlberg, left, plays one of four Navy SEALs on a top-secret mission to find a high-ranking Taliban member. When three shepherds stumble upon the SEALs’ hiding place, the soldiers must decide whether to shoot the locals or let them go, potentially compromising their safety, in this rousing tribute, based on a true story. A Monster Calls 7 Friday, BBC1, 11.25pm Fantasy drama. Schoolboy Conor O’Malley (Lewis MacDougall, left) is in denial about his mother’s terminal illness and seeks refuge in his drawings. As darkness falls, a nearby yew tree morphs into a gnarled creature (voiced by Liam Neeson) which promises to share three parables, demanding one thing in return: “Tell me your nightmare.”

THE After Rainie posts flyers saying Max is the father of Linda’s child, Mick decides it’s time to show her who she’s messing with EASTENDERS BBC1 Linda is determined that Mick will be her baby’s legal father once he signs the birth certificate, but Rainie has other ideas as she posts flyers claiming Max is the real dad. So, Mick decides to take matters into his own hands, leaving Rainie and Stuart shocked. Bobby, Dana, Waseem, Iqra and Kioni are also handing out flyers, but theirs are in support of the local mosque. They attract the attention of a group of aggressive men, who start throwing out racial slurs before assaulting Dana. Whitney’s latest gig Rainie finds herself in Mick’s crosshairs goes well until Rocky spots Sonia’s new love interest Ethan kissing another woman and punches him. What will this mean for Whitney’s career and Sonia’s budding romance? Also, Patrick gives his blessing to Isaac’s plan to move Lola in, but Sheree is less impressed as she tries to push ahead with her Trinidad plan. Meanwhile, Denise finds herself shocked when the headteacher tells her that Isaac still has a job there, before finding Sheree showing an estate agent around the house. Elsewhere, Martin drowns his sorrows and Kat encourages Janine to get an above-board job. TAKING THE MICK: Rainie’s flyers have Mick on the warpath HOME AND AWAY Channel 5 Martha suggests holding a fundraiser for mental health awareness and Ryder tries to persuade Bella to get involved but she’s not interested. Cash has a breakthrough in his attempts to woo Jasmine, after she tells Irene she’s agreed to a date with him, while poor Dean is knocked for six when Ziggy drops a bombshell about Tane, after chatting with Mackenzie. As Mia decides to go back to work, Ari frets that it’s still too soon. Mercedes is forced to face facts HOLLYOAKS Channel 4 Mia decides to go back to work Mercedes has been putting off telling Bobby about the end of her marriage in the hope the relationship can still be salvaged, but when Sylver returns home, he tells his stepson the truth. Meanwhile, after overhearing Yazz and Tom rowing about her presence, Cher claims that her dad has forgiven her and she’s moving back to The Dog. In reality, she has nowhere to go, and soon hits rock bottom. Emmerdale ITV Marlon and Chas are forced to close the Woolpack when the electric cuts out, but what they don’t know is that someone has deliberately severed the external mains cable. Charity later walks in on a hooded intruder making off with the contents of the pub till, but the thief leaves her unconscious in a pool of blood. She’s taken to the hospital, where Chas is distraught to hear her cousin is suffering from a bleed on Kim tries to get Paddy to dope her racehorse Charity is knocked out by the intruder the brain. Will Charity pull through? Meanwhile, Paddy is horrified at the idea of having Al as a co-owner of the Woolpack, and asks Kim to help get rid of him. She points out it’s actually in her best interests if Al is distracted from HOP and says the vet will have to sweeten the deal – by doping her racehorse. Also, Diane is horrified when she realises Gabby is planning to elope with Jamie, but what the would-be bride doesn’t know is that he’s busy trying to convince Dawn that they can runaway together. CORONATION STREET ITV Alya accepts Zeedan’s loan, but when he belatedly tries to play the protective big brother by having a go at Ryan for cheating on her, she points out that he wasn’t there when she and Yasmeen really needed him. It seems Zeedan could have an ulterior method for coming back now, as he is later found bleeding and battered in the ginnel. He initially hints to the police that Ryan was behind the attack, before coming clean to his family about being in serious trouble. Elsewhere, grieving Freda is hurt when Bernie claims that Aled will be ‘normal’ once he’s got his cochlear implant. She offers to take the youngster for a walk and then disappears with him, just as Gemma and Chesney are about to take their son for his operation. Norris manages to stir up trouble at his own funeral thanks to a final letter, a row between David and Daniel over the teacher’s supposed favouritism threatens to get out of hand, and Kelly is convinced her dad must be the anonymous donor who’s paid her legal fees. Zeedan is attacked Neighbours Channel 5 Toadie ends up kissing Rose The rumblings of dissent among the Lassiters’ staff at Harlow’s nepotistic appointment turn into a fullscale strike. Terese is grateful for Jesse’s support during the tense time, but a slip of the tongue leaves her working to smooth things over. There’s woe for Toadie, who vows to remain at Melanie’s side, only to lose his head with Rose. He comes clean about it, but it’s obvious he has no idea what he wants.
