Billy Youdale, 37, armed himself with a dumbbell as he raided a post office. But the female owner in Corby, Northants, grabbed his trousers, leaving his bottom exposed to CCTV.

Hundreds of protesters gathered on Parliament Square for the Leaseholders Together rally to demand the Building Safety Bill be reformed. They chanted “enough is enough” while placards read: “You built it, you fix it,” “Endless worry and stress” and “Can’t pay won’t pay”. The crowd fell silent for 72 seconds in honour of the 72 lives lost in the Grenfell Tower fire on June 14, 2017. An estimated 850,000 people live in homes with dangerous cladding and fire safety defects, the End Our Cladding Scandal campaign group say. They estimate up to 3.6 million people could wait a decade or more to tragic Grenfell sell their homes because they must prove the walls are safe – and cannot. Leaseholders are facing extortionate costs to fix buildings they do not own and warn many will be left bankrupt. London Mayor Sadiq Khan told the rally 1,000 buildings in the capital remain unsafe. He said: “I’ve met leaseholders whose dreams of owning a flat came true and turned into nightmares.” Tory Sir Iain Duncan Smith said: “We’re going to vote and vote again against anything that fails to deal with the issue.” Will Martin, of End Our Cladding Scandal, said: “We need the Government to finally hold true to promises made to protect us from paying to fix safety defects we didn’t cause.” The Ministry for Housing said: “These figures are speculative.

As the mirror reported yesterday, families of Hillsborough victims want an independent adviser to work on behalf of relatives bereaved in disasters. mrs may last night told the Commons: “The Hillsborough families deserve this. “They have been through hell since that fatal day and they don’t want to see other people having that same experience.

After the death of a senior royal it has been convention for over a century that a bid to seal the will is made to the president of the court’s family division. This means they are not open There’s been a dramatic shift in mood.. the issue has become very pressing A SOURCE On THE ATmOSpHERE AROUnd pRinCE AndREw to public inspection in the way one ordinarily is. President of the Family Division of the High Court Sir Andrew McFarlane yesterday ordered Philip’s remains sealed for 90 years. Even after that it may only be opened in private. Sir Andrew said: “There is a cLaiMs Prince at Balmoral this week £14m Amount Virginia Giuffre could make if she wins sex claim against Prince need to enhance the protection afforded to truly private aspects of the lives of this limited group of individuals in order to maintain the dignity of close members of her family.” Prince Philip died aged 99 on April 9, just two months short of his 100th birthday. exClusiVe By rUsseLL Myers Royal Editor just last week Prince Andrew was convinced he would easily beat Virginia Giuffre’s sex allegations against him. But sources have revealed his bullish mood has changed after the High Court announced on monday it will act to serve uS civil case papers on him. And the Duke of York is now bracing himself for a legal battle that he fears could go on for years and end up costing him millions of pounds. Giuffre, a former sex slave of late paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, has accused Andrew, 61, of forcing her to sleep with him three times when she was 17. Legal experts have predicted she could be awarded around £14million if she wins. The mirror revealed last week the Prince was so confident the case would collapse he planned to return to royal duties. But insiders revealed he is now giving off a different vibe. One source said: “He’s not been his usual blasé self, acting like everything is in hand. stArk “The issue has suddenly become very pressing and there is a distinct tension in the air. “There has been a dramatic shift in mood and the reality that this could not only go on for many months, if not years, as well as costing potentially millions of pounds is very real.” Another insider added: “The stark reality is that the Duke and his team need to face the fact they need to address this.” ms Giuffre’s lawyer David Boies said: “We are hopeful that Prince Andrew will now stop trying to evade and delay facing his accuser in court. “The bottom line is Andrew is being served. He cannot refuse.” In another blow for Andrew, the High Court judge refused to unseal a document the Prince’s lawyers claim would invalidate ms Giuffre’s claim. The document, signed by his accuser, allegedly prevents her from suing. But Andrew will now have to make a legal request for a copy and that would mean accepting he has been served the lawsuit. The High Court will now begin trying to locate the Duke for a legal representative to tell him about the case, known as service of proceedings. Once served, his legal team would have 21 days to respond. A uS judge this week dismissed claims Andrew could not respond to the suit launched by Giuffre as he had not received the documents despite them being left with a policeman at his Windsor home. Lewis A Kaplan has listed the case for a further hearing on October 17. Andrew, who denies the claims, was this week pictured at the Queen’s Balmoral estate. russell.myers@mirror.co.uk @rjmyers

6 DAILY MIRROR FRIDAY 17.09.2021 Voice of the Jab world, save us all NEXT week US president Joe Biden will convene a global vaccines summit. At stake are the lives of millions of people and the world’s ability to contain the spread of coronavirus. As Gordon Brown writes in today’s paper, Britain and other leading nations have so far failed to fulfil their pledges to distribute vaccines to poor countries. Despite a promise to hand over 870million doses to Africa and low-income states, only 100million have been donated. This would be understandable if there were a shortage of medicines but it makes no sense when we have large stockpiles of surplus stock. Without urgent action we face an additional one to two million global deaths from Covid. Distributing vaccines is not only the morally right thing to do. It is also in our self-interest. With a global pandemic nobody is safe until everybody is safe. culture low THE Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport was once dismissed as the ministry for fun. But it is an important portfolio that covers topics from online safety to racism in sport. By appointing Nadine Dorries to run the department Boris Johnson shows he does not take such issues seriously. It is not her turn on I’m a Celebrity that counts against her. It is the fact that until now her only interest in the brief has been to score cheap political points and make offensive comments about race, media and gay rights. Nor does it fill you with confidence that the minister in charge of cyber security bragged about sharing her passwords with office staff. The job should have gone to a person keen on culture, not a keyboard cultural warrior. only jewels ONLY Fools and Horses, Porridge and Fawlty Towers top the list of programmes telly fans would like to see remade. Like a good joke, the old ones are the best. cabiNet reSHuffle - a viSual guide ..so what if we put the deckchairs over there.. DM1ST coronavirus crisis: VAXX one of the few Woman jabbed in Kenya Hoarding stock is a global killer EXCLUSIVE By Kevin Maguire UP to one million more people could die needlessly of Covid unless wealthier countries share hoarded jabs, warns Gordon Brown. The global vaccine campaigner and former Prime Minister speaks out today ahead of a US summit next Monday led by President Biden. “We must bring to an end the immoral divide between the world’s vaccine rich and vaccine poor,” he writes in today’s Daily Mirror. Only 2% of Africa is vaccinated, he says, and only 100million of 870million doses pledged to poor nations three months ago by rich nations, including Britain, have been delivered. “But there is a way forward – made possible by the remarkable increase in production of vaccines – from 500million a month in April to 1.5bn now and soon 2bn,” argues Brown. “By January, there will be enough – 14billion – to double-vaccinate every adult in the world. By June we will have manufactured 27billion. “The issue now is, no longer a vaccine shortage, but the inexplicable failure to distribute them fairly.” Time to start saving world gordon brown Former PM & Global Vaccine Campaigner A MilliOn lives will hover in the balance when the global vaccines summit convened by President Biden opens in new york on Monday. in June Boris Johnson promised he and the leaders of the world’s richest seven economies would ensure the vaccination of the whole world by the end of 2022. They offered to hand over 870million vaccine doses to Africa and low-income countries. But three months on, just 100million have been shared. And with only 2% of Africa vaccinated, deaths are rising fast. But there is a way forward, made possible by the remarkable increase in global vaccine production. By January there will be enough to double-jab every adult on earth. The issue now is no longer a 2% Percentage of African population who have been vaccinated vaccine shortage but the inexplicable failure to distribute them fairly. What’s going wrong? Over-purchasing by the West is creating a stockpile of unused vaccines, some of which are near their use-by dates. So in three days’ time we can save countless lives by transferring stocks to where they are needed and start to end the immoral divide between the vaccine rich and the vaccine poor. thuMBs up Hospital worker Dee Braim gets her 3rd dose »» NHS offers 3rd doses as surge looms By Ben gLaZe Deputy Political Editor THE vaccine booster rollout began yesterday in a race to bolster defences before the expected winter surge. The NHS began jabbing people who have already had two injections after being given the green light from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation. Millions of people, including health and care workers, the clinically vulnerable and over-50s, are eligible for the injections. Scientists are now looking at whether children need a second dose of vaccine and, if so, which type. Health leaders approved first doses of the Pfizer vaccine for over-12s earlier this week. Figures last night showed 89.2% of the population aged over 16 has had one dose and 81.4% is double jabbed. Announcing the start of the adult booster jab campaign, NHS England’s Dr Nikki Kanani said: “Now the decision has been taken by the JCVI and once the relevant checks are in place, the NHS will invite you for your booster. “There is no need to contact the NHS – we will be in touch with you when it is your turn to get your booster vaccine – at least six months on since your last dose.” Catherine Cargill, a maternity support »» Scientists look at giving kids 2nd shots worker at Croydon University Hospital in South London, was one of the first people to be given the Pfizer booster vaccine yesterday. She said: “I have had it ahead of the winter season to make sure I am protected, to make sure I can carry on working, I can carry on spending time with my family, and so I can carry on with my studies.” GPs have been told they can give the winter flu jab at the same time if stocks allow, but they should not delay either vaccination. Further jab centres and community pharmacy-led sites will join the campaign next week. The Pfizer jab can be given as a third dose even if people originally received two doses of Jab snub An anti-vaxx mum and daughter have both died of Covid less than a fortnight apart after refusing the jab. Mother-of-four Sammie-Jo Forde, 32, passed away in Ulster Hospital near Belfast only 11 days after Heather Maddern, 55. Sammie-Jo’s father Kevin McAllister said it will “haunt me for the rest of my life” that his daughter did not get the vaccine. Both women – who were only two beds away

Health Secretary Sajid Javid said: “It is brilliant to see that the first booster jabs are being rolled out today – thanks to the phenomenal efforts of the NHS who continue to work tirelessly to help us fight Covid-19 and protect the most vulnerable. “We know vaccines save lives and, with every jab, our wall of defence gets higher.” Public Health England officials said vaccines have prevented 230,000 hospital admissions.

Health chiefs hope that jabbing over-12s will prevent more cases and stop more disruption to schooling. Researchers yesterday announced a study of vaccination schedules in 12 to 16-year-olds. The Com-Cov 3 trial will seek to recruit 360 volunteers who will be enrolled in one of four parts of the study. Chief investigator Prof Matthew Snape, associate professor in paediatrics and vacci- nology at Oxford University, said: “This study will provide vital information on the range of options mum & daughter die in hospital – were care workers. Sammie-Jo, who had no underlying health conditions, texted her father while she was being treated and told him: “Dad, Mummy’s passed away.” Mr McAllister said he did not understand why neither women was vaccinated. Heather shared a series of Covid conspiracy theories in the weeks before her death and posted about nurses being threatened with the sack if they did not have the jab. tRaGiC Heather and Sammie-Jo were in same ward 60m 50m 40m 10m 0m 48,503,181 30m 20m people have had first dose so far Vaccineometer for immunising teenagers. As well as looking at the standard two full doses of the Pfizer vaccine, we will look at how well volunteers respond when their second dose of Pfizer is half that of the first dose, or if different vaccines are used altogether, such as the vaccines by Moderna or Novavax. “This will provide the JCVI with information crucial to informing their advice about immunising teenagers in the UK.” Researchers hope to report initial results by December. Hospitality bosses blasted the possibility that vaccine passports may still be required for pubs. Mr Javid this week left the door open to requiring punters to show proof of vaccination or a negative test before being served a pint. Campaign for Pubs director Greg Mulholland said: “It would be a huge burden on publicans and pub staff and put off many customers, as well as being ethically questionable. “The Government should instead stick to Plan A and encourage as many people to get vaccinated as possible.” UKHospitality chief executive Kate Nicholls added: “We must caution Government that the introduction of those measures that are left in reserve for this winter would have significant and drastic impacts on the sector.” ben.glaze@mirror.co.uk @benglaze G7 hits ChORLeY: paGe 19 A SHAKE-UP of the Covid travel regime is expected to be unveiled by Transport Secretary Grant Shapps. He is due to announce an overhaul of the traffic light system, which grades countries green, amber or red for overseas visits. Ministers and experts were yesterday finalising the details amid a clamour from the travel industry for a relaxation of rules. The Government is expected to scrap expensive PCR tests, which travellers have to take on day two of their arrival in the UK, replacing them with cheaper lateral flow tests. The changes are due to come into force before the October half-term holiday to give families a last chance of a sunshine break before the winter. Airlines UK chief Tim Alderslade said: “We cannot reopen properly with these layers of complexity. The economic costs are huge.” Association of British Travel Agents boss Mark Tanzer added: “The Government’s travel requirements have choked off this summer’s travel trade, putting jobs, businesses and the UK’s connectivity at risk. That’s not how you achieve a global Britain.” Which? Travel Editor Rory Boland said: “Travellers were let down badly during the summer by a confusing traffic light system and a dysfunctional PCR testing market that left them exposed to extortionate prices.” Mask arrest police sued A WOMAN is suing police claiming she was wrongfully arrested in Waitrose after refusing to wear a face mask while buying baked beans. Juliet Johnson, 55, says she told store security that she was exempt due to suffering from an autoimmune disease. But two police officers were called to the store in Chichester, West Sussex, in February this year and the IT consultant was arrested. Juliet is suing police for wrongful arrest, false imprisonment, assault and disability discrimination. She said: “They handcuffed me. I was incarcerated in a cell. I was forced to strip naked.” Waitrose said: “We are unable to comment.” A Sussex Police spokesman said: “A civil claim has been received, however this is strongly disputed, liability has been denied.”

Traditional Conservatives in “blue Wall” constituencies the party has taken for granted could switch allegiance as the PM woos HOME Secretary Priti Patel meets border Force officials just hours after one of their patrols landed a boat load of migrants in Dover. The Home Secretary was seen the Red Wall seats he seized in 2019, according to Sir Ed. In a blistering attack on the eve of the Lib Dem conference, he accused Mr Johnson of “breaking promises left, right and centre”. He said Johnson did not command respect, adding: “He doesn’t recognise the truth, he’s completely incompetent and I don’t think he works hard. This is what Tory voters are telling us – they don’t think he’s decent.” Sir Ed said voters in the Chesham by-election, where his party beat the Tories, were put off by the thrice-wed PM with six children by three different women. He went on: “I was staggered. I didn’t expect so many lifelong Conservatives to say ‘We will never vote Tory while boris Johnson out in the Channel a day after it was confirmed she would remain in post despite the Cabinet reshuffle. Her trip to the Kent port came as crossings continued for the fourth leads them’. He went on: “My overriding priority is to get rid of him. He’s not a decent man.” Sir Ed believes the Tories are vulnerable to a pincer movement at the next election, with Labour set for a resurgence in the Red Wall of the North and Midlands and the Lib Dems ready to attack the Tories’ southern flank, where Labour often struggles. 12:44pm Priti Patel marches ahead of Border Force officials on Dover visit consecutive day this week.

This is not the tropics of Brazil or Borneo, but a temperate rainforest in the far north-west of Scotland. The rainforests of Britain are even more rare than those in the tropics, but are now reaching a crisis point, in part due to climate change. Once covering Europe’s Atlantic coastline, from Norway to Spain, this unique habitat provides perfect conditions for species not found anywhere else. Pockets of rainforest are still found across the UK, such as in Cumbria, north Wales and southwest England, but Scotland is the last stronghold due to the high rainfall and relatively mild, year-round temperatures. The Daily Mirror joined Malcolm Turner from the Woodland Trust Scotland inside the rainforest at the Ben Shieldaig Estate in Wester Ross. Recent studies revealed that some of the native oak, ash, birch, pine and hazel trees found here on the west coast could be thousands of years old. But this globally significant area is at risk of disappearing. The Scottish temperate rainforests, also known as Atlantic or Celtic woodlands, now cover 117 sq miles, just 2% of the nation’s tree cover. Less than onethird is in a satisfactory condition.

The Trust’s State of the UK’s Woods and Trees 2021 report said the area was “as important as tropical rainforest, but even rarer”. Native woods and trees help curb carbon emissions and reverse declines in wildlife. And failing to address the problems they face will undermine mAgiCAL Mists over the woodland efforts to tackle the climate and nature crises, the charity warned. It said the impact of climate change on woodland life cycles, pests, diseases, pollution, and the slow rate of woodland expansion could be a “multiple whammy” for wildlife. Malcolm explains how the insectr i c h habitat at the Ben Shieldaig Estate rainforest attracts migrant birds such as pied flycatchers, wood warblers and redstarts. The rare, chequered skipper butterfly is also only found here. He explains how the mosses and liverworts – tiny plants that produce spores instead of flowers and seeds – play a hugely important role in the health of our environment. He says: “Scotland is home to nearly 1,000 different types of these plants which grow on the woodland floor and on tree branches. Some are not found anywhere else in the world. “They provide homes to tiny creatures and together they also act as a giant sponge, slowing the flow of rain into burns and rivers, and helping protect against flash floods.” As well as the threat from climate change, around 40% of the rainforest is suffering high or very high levels of grazing, vows to be able to say: I did all I could environmental project which is aimed at saving the planet. William said: “The damage we are doing is no longer incremental but exponential. We are fast reaching a tipping point.” Ahead of the release of Earthshot: How to Save Our Planet – a book tied in with the Earthshot Prize – Jason Knauf, chief of The Royal Foundation, said: “The challenge the duke set himself was ‘What is the maximum contribution I can make in the next 10 years in the fight against climate change? What am I going to do that means I can look my children in the eye and say that I did my bit?’.” The project has a £50million prize fund which will be handed out over the next decade. Every year from now until 2030, a winner in each of five categories will receive £1million after being picked by a judging panel. It is hoped the ideas will help to repair the planet. Ahead of the announcement today of this year’s 15 finalists, William has paid tribute to his father Prince Charles and late grandfather Prince Philip, calling them “pioneers in the environmental movement”. William also said he hopes the Earthshot project will inspire hope. He said: “The facts look terrifying, and I could see this risked making people feel like they might as well give up.” Where to find our rainforests Ausewell Woods, Ashburton, Devon Ben Shieldaig Estate, Strathcarron, Scotland Bovey Valley Woods, Newton Abbot, Devon Coed Felenrhyd & Llennyrch, Gwynedd, Wales Crinan Wood, Argyll, Scotland Dunollie Wood, Oban, Scotland Fingle Woods, Dartmouth National Park, Devon Loch Arkaig Pine Forest, Lochaber, Scotland, Uig Wood, Isle of Skye, Scotland largely due to deer.

Together with Plantlife, the organisation leads The Alliance for Scotland’s Rainforest, which hopes to address the threats, as well as working with landowners to restore and expand woodlands. Abi Bunker, director of conservation and external affairs for the Woodland Trust, says: “The warning signs are loud and clear. “If we don’t tackle the threats that are facing our woods and trees we will severely damage the UK’s ability to address the climate and nature crises. “Our wildlife havens are suffering, and we are storing up problems for future generations.” nada.farhoud@mirror.co.uk @NadaFarhoud

Cortado sYdnEY GLorY James, 2nd right, steve Redgrave, Tim Foster & Matthew Pinsent exclusive by KATIE BEGLEY When you’re putting the finishing touches to your wedding plans, taking on a gang of former special forces soldiers is usually not an item on the list. But, if you’re double Olympic champion rower James Cracknell, it makes perfect sense. The 49-year-old is enjoying the first weeks of marital bliss, having last month tied the knot for a second time. But while wife Jordan Connell, 35, was planning their big day, James was putting himself through hell having signed up for SAS: Who Dares Wins. If he was hoping to have a lucky escape from the last-minute stress and sleepless nights before a wedding, he might have regretted his choice. Instead he was gassed, shot at, thrown off a helicopter and forced to abseil down a cliff while being screamed at. Drawing on his experience of previous challenges, including swimming across the Strait of Gibraltar, the dad-of-three felt well up for the adventure. But he soon realised that facing off with former SAS hardman Ant Middleton and his tough team was a whole new ball game. “This is like nothing you’ve ever done before, you can’t prepare,” admits James. “If I had to classify what I was good at it would be coaching myself through tough moments, endurance, physical pain, and coping with doing that in a pressurised environment. “But what I realised, very quickly, was I was very good at putting myself under pain for a length of time that I knew. “In the Olympics, it was six minutes and there was no excuses, you had to absolutely red-line it all the way. Whereas on this course you didn’t know how long it was going to take. “You didn’t know how long you’re going to be in pain or what was coming next. I really struggled with that.” James flew to Scotland’s Isle of Raasay for the series with a host of famous faces.

James awaits further orders during one challenge exhausting challenges: the grilling in the infamous mirror room. The stuff of nightmares, it is where the contestants’ biggest fears and failings are usually exposed by the DS. But it seems they didn’t try to break James, who suffered a brain injury after he was hit by a car while cycling in the US in 2010. The injury changed his personality and led to the breakdown of his marriage to first wife Beverley Turner. “There are cracks there they could have dug into,” he admits. “They could have gone down the life changes after the accident and getting divorced. “They would have got to me that way, but they didn’t come after me.” The DS could not make him cry. But being asked to write a letter home to his kids – Croyde, 17, Kiki, 12, and Trixie, 10 – did the trick. The challenge mirrors what SAS forces do before a mission – in case the worst happens. “I guess it’s just that reflection on your life, the things you wished you said and could never say,” he shrugs. “It took me right back to the accident and being a day away from never seeing my kids again. “My ex-wife was pregnant with our third when I was in a coma, so I never would have met our youngest.” James’s children have split time between him and Beverley since their divorce after 16 years of marriage was finalised in early 2019. He still struggles with not being with them every day, a blow that is lessened by the bond they have now formed with Jordan. “It’s utterly sh** not waking up with your kids every day,” says James. “But my wife is amazing with the kids. They – james cracknell on low point of gruelling series love her. I think all of us are guilty of taking too many things for granted and if the last year has taught us anything, it’s appreciation of the things you do for normality. “It’s weird to have that kind of realisation on a TV show, but nothing is normal in that place.” James has not let his 2010 brain injury slow him down, but the course was adapted slightly to accommodate him and avoid the risk of further serious harm. “We had to jump out of a helicopter and they wouldn’t let me fall headfirst into the water. I went feetfirst,” he explains. “And then during split With ex-wife Bev Turner the boxing there was no punching to the head allowed.” The DS, however, pulled no punches on the rest of the course. But decades of training his body to peak physical condition have allowed James to thrive – so much so he even managed to give instructor Jason “Foxy” Fox, 43, a run for his money. “At one point we’re running behind Foxy with our bags on our backs and that was it, we just had to run, and eventually everyone started to drop off but I was with him the entire time.” Did he feel like he had something to prove? Well, yes and no. “I wanted to test myself, but I’m sure as hell not going to rank it up there with the Olympics,” James says. “Whereas I think it’s really hard for people who’ve done nothing outside of showbusiness. That initial discomfort is really hard.” James is tight-lipped about how far he gets, but being on the show made him realise there’s more to being in the special forces than brute strength. “They are incredible athletes, and incredibly skilful, co-ordinated, resilient in a different way,” he says. “It just makes you respect them on way more levels than just being tough and strong. There’s way, way more to it than that.” ■ SAS: Who Dares Wins, is on Channel 4, Sunday, at 9pm. features@mirror.co.uk @DailyMirror

DeMeNTIA Gates in 1969 First game to kick off with headers ban by ToM WIlKINSoN THE first adult football match with headers outlawed will take place later this month. Heading will only allowed if the ball is in the penalty box in the first half, while it will be banned outright in the second half. The fundraising game will be held at Spennymoor Town FC in County Durham on September 26. Brain charity Head For Change and the Solan Connor Fawcett Family Cancer Trust will benefit.

Four in 10 felt TV golden oldies were better than modern offerings on the box, the survey of 1,500 people by Freesat found. And nine in 10 said settling down to watch an old favourite gave them a feel-good factor. More than half felt if a muchloved show was to make a comeback, it would have to capture the essence of the original. But three quarters expressed concerns that new versions could fall short of expectations. Twothirds agreed that British TV shows were the best in the world. BBC comedy Only Fools and Horses topped the most-wanted revivals list, with Fawlty Towers second and Blackadder third, while Porridge was number seven. US sitcom Friends, talent show Stars In Their Eyes, period drama Heartbeat and comedy Father Ted all made the top 20. Keeping Up Appearances and Last of the Summer Wine were also listed. Freesat’s Angie Mee said: “The results show the power of comedy – but we found classic shows from Star Trek to Grange Hill would be welcomed back too.” ruki.sayid@ mirror.co.uk lAUgHS Del in Only Fools @RukiSayid VoIce oF THe MIRRoR: p6 1.

Sometimes known as the rainy city (and I can vouch for that), it boomed as Cottonopolis because the damp air was perfect for the textile industry. But this year the rain has stayed mainly on the plain, not in the pluvial Lake District, where the city gets its water from Thirlmere, a man-made reservoir not a natural lake. And that’s only 40% full, so United Utilities is urging millions in Greater Manchester to conserve water by spending a minute less in the shower. In the great drought of 1976, the government’s slogan was ‘Save Water – Bath with a Friend’. They hadn’t invented showers then. Apple of PM’s eye smiles as millions forced to Coff up FACED with starving, breadless peasants, Queen Marie Antoinette said: “Let them eat cake.” Some 200 years later, faced with hungry, hard-working families, Therese Coffey may as well have sneered, “Let them work longer hours”. And she was rewarded with retaining her handsomely paid Cabinet job. France had a revolution. We could do with one here – a voters’ revolt against heartless, cynical politicians like the Tory Work-Harder-You-Lazy- B*****ds Secretary. She is “entirely happy” with the upcoming £20-a-week cut in Universal Credit that will plunge millions into further poverty. Adding insult to injury, the former accountant with Mars confectionery suggested “about two hours extra work” would make up for the cut. Deceitful, as you might expect. Workers can’t just demand more hours, and even if they could it would actually PAUL ROUTLeDGe BOJO BABe Coffey ‘‘ Workers hit by callous policies won’t raise a pint to her Cabinet survival ARE YOU SURE? There’s one certain way to halt the flow of refugees in boats across the Channel.

If that doesn’t stop them, they deserve the chance to make a new life here. Telling it like it is... take up to nine hours to recoup their losses. Complacent Coffey told MPs: “We’ll be seeing what we can do to help people perhaps secure those extra hours.” “Seeing what we can do... Perhaps.” What a wasteland of smug indifference lies behind those few simple words. Out of touch comes nowhere near it. She never even bothered to do an economic assessment of the impact of this benefit cut, which will hit 2.3 million claimants in work but not paid enough to live on. Why bother, when you are the apple of the Prime Minister’s eye? A hard-right careerist who opposed gay marriage and curbs on addictive gambling and backed the bedroom tax, she’s a dumb-loyal Bojo Babe. Coffey boasts of being a member of the Campaign for Real Ale.

The Inspiration4 crew, comprising one billionaire and three “ordinary citizens”, rode out of the Kennedy Space Center in a Dragon capsule provided by the SpaceX rocket company on Wednesday. They will orbit Earth for three days. The crew of Jared Isaacman, Hayley Arceneaux, Dr Sian Proctor and Chris Sembroski had six months of training. But onboard computer systems will be in control overseen by ground crew. The Dragon has flown to an altitude of 360 miles, roughly the height at which the Hubble Space Telescope operates. The venture was purchased from Elon Musk’s SpaceX by Jared, 38, who made his fortune developing systems to process credit card payments. Rather than go on an “outing with fishing buddies”, he decided “to inject real purpose into the flight”, he says. THERE’S one person who could teach these novices a thing or two. Capt Samantha Cristoforetti, 45, spent 199 days on the International Space Station. Ahead of her return as ISS commander and to mark the digital Crew member Hayley, 29, works for the medical facility that cured her of bone cancer in childhood, St Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. Jared is on a mission to raise awareness and £145million for the facility. Sian, 51, is a geoscientist and artist. She plans to paint while looking out from the Dragon’s domed window. And Chris, 42, is a US Air Force veteran and works with aerospace company Lockheed Martin. A friend won a place in a lottery draw to join the crew and asked him to take the place. SpaceX described the launch as the first “all-civilian mission to orbit”. This summer, billionaires Sir Richard Branson and Jeff Bezos went above Earth’s atmosphere in space vehicles.

It was just a pity the deal had to include the deathly dull hour-long preview with the likes of Greg Rusedski and Tim Henman. I mean, when Amazon announced a couple of years back that it was going to start using drones I didn’t realise it was talking about its TV presenters. Thing Most Likely To Make You Ask... Will Laura Kuenssberg keep her role? … Of The Week. The news on Wednesday that Boris Johnson was about to reshuffle his top team. Back at Rhod Gilbert’s Growing Pains, Richard Madeley admitted he spent his early teenage years sneakily looking at middle-aged women in support bras in his mum’s catalogue. You can suggest this may have had an impact on his choice of wife in later life, if you like. I’m saying nothing. Richard then revealed that by the time he was 14 his eyesight had started to fade. Blimey. So it does make you go blind, after all? Question. Re BBC1’s upcoming tribute Prince Philip: The Royal Family Remembers.

Channel 4’s Spice Girls: how Girl Power Changed Britain revealed that at the first audition Posh Spice Victoria was marked 5/10 for her singing voice and 5/10 for personality.

But he was certainly pleased that it had left its mark and, to be fair, there were plenty of other great memories on offer. It was also quite an emotional affair for long-standing fans of the soap. Partly because it made you realise just how close we came to losing Malcolm to heart failure three years ago seems we must now be subjected to several preachy reminders of our social responsibility, or repeated examples of the terrible things life can sometimes throw at the less fortunate.

The Morning Show (Apple TV+, from today) Gogglebox (C4, tonight) Strictly Come Dancing (BBC1, Saturday) Good Morning Britain, Tuesday: A tearful Paul Merson discusses gambling addiction, and says that a mobile phone is like “a casino in your pocket”. Good Morning Britain, 20 minutes later: Andi Peters encourages viewers to enter ITV’s million pound phone competition (as many times as they like) at just £2 per entry – with a scannable QR code to make it handy for mobile phones. It may not be classed as gambling, and ITV is entitled to make its money however it sees fit. However, this latest competition is running for SIX weeks across its four most high-profile daytime shows, which are hosted by some of its most high-profile and trusted presenters. If each show runs the competition just twice a day that’s a whopping 240 reminders. I mean, I know ITV cares about its viewers. But surely that’s taking helpful a bit far? There was a tough viewing choice at 9pm last night. all Creatures Great and Small on Channel 5 or Jodie Comer and Stephen Graham’s care home film help on Channel 4.

DM1ST mirror.co.uk FRIDAY 17.09.2021 DAILY MIRROR 27 Apprentices at British Gas gained two new recruits on Monday, as prime Minister Boris Johnson and chancellor rishi sunak appeared in branded jackets at their training academy in Leicestershire. In Sunderland, Ciara Arrowsmith, a former service and repair engineer with British Gas who left her job as a battle over ‘fire and rehire’ engulfed the company, was appalled. “I saw Boris on the TV when he visited British Gas and realised he isn’t going to do anything. “He is just spineless. They need to make fire and rehire illegal. It is unethical and immoral.” Fire and rehire is the growing practice of laying off staff and then offering workers their jobs back with reduced pay or worse conditions. It’s currently legal, but Labour and trade unions are campaigning to outlaw it. Ciara, 37, left British Gas in February after refusing to sign a new contract boilerS sunak and Johnson at British Gas academy with what she says were tougher terms and longer hours. After 13 years at the company, Ciara says she was so loyal to British Gas she had “blue blood in me”. “I felt gutted when I left. I put everything into the job.” When she was shown the new terms, she says, “I felt worthless, and my anxiety was really bad. I had customers ring me and say, if you’re leaving, we’re leaving.” Fire and rehire has spread like a virus during the Covid-19 pandemic. A poll by the TUC earlier this year found that nearly one in 10 workers had been told to re-apply for their jobs on worse terms and conditions since the first lockdown in March 2020. The same study showed it disproportionately affected young, working class and BME workers.

Meanwhile, Weetabix staff at factories in Kettering and Corby voted for strike action over plans to rehire them on deals they say would leave them £5,000 poorer a year. Unite settled a dispute earlier this year with British Airways over fire and rehire plans affecting its cargo division’s workforce. Fire and rehire has been a theme all week at the TUC Congress. At the same moment Sunak and Johnson were playing at being boiler engineers, TUC General Secretary Frances Ros Wynne-Jones standing up for you and your family Workers betrayed by ‘fire and rehire’ breathe easy Real Britain readers may remember reading our story on Mathew Currie, the five-year-old boy whose doctor said his life was being shortened by pollution from a Staffordshire landfill site. His mum Beckie told us her children were being “gassed in their beds”. Yesterday, the brave little boy and his family won a court case against the Environment Agency that will help an entire community breathe again. See more on page 10 O’Grady was making her opening speech to Congress in London. “It can’t be right that a boss can threaten to sack loyal workers, often after years of service, unless they accept worse pay and conditions,” she told the annual gathering of Britain’s trade unionists. “It’s high time we outlawed that evil practice of fire and rehire.” Unite the Union’s general secretary Sharon Graham called the practice “an abhorrence” and “one of the scandals of our age”. Dean Ismay, 29, from Cheltenham, Glos, shared a moving testimony with relieF Beckie and Mathew Congress as a disabled worker and GMB delegate who said he experienced fire and rehire at Asda. “Fire and rehire is a dirty, bullying tactic. It wrecks lives and trashes the economy,” he told delegates. “I have personally been subjected to this horrible tactic at Asda.” Dean worked at the supermarket chain for five years until 2020 when he says they brought in new contracts that changed people’s rights at work. “When they issued the dismissal notices to us, I felt so sick with worry. As a disabled worker I felt utterly 6 Boris Johnson must have got mixed up when he appointed Nadine Dorries. He was meant to appoint a Culture Secretary. Instead, he has appointed a Culture Wars Secretary who opposed gay marriage, is famed for mixing up the very unalike Chuka Umunna and Chris Eubank, and is already gearing up for war on the “crackpot” BBC. betrayed by the business. I was so stressed and I was worried about my health. Fire and rehire must be consigned to the dustbin of history where it belongs.” Asda said: “In 2019 we introduced a simpler and fairer contract for hourlypaid colleagues in our stores to ensure they all received the same terms ‘‘ Boris’s visit to British Gas made it clear fire and rehire won’t stop Setback Dean worked at Asda for five years and conditions. “As part of this change, we invested £80million to increase the take-home pay of more than 100,000 colleagues, whilst also maintaining their existing benefits.” A British Gas spokesman said: “We reached an agreement with our unions in July that is critical in ensuring our business is sustainable, competitive and set up for growth. We had to take measures to protect almost 20,000 jobs and there was a job for everyone at the end of the process. “To ensure we have a workforce that can help to make the transition to low carbon both hassle-free and affordable for our customers, we’re creating 3,500 apprenticeship roles over the next decade – these will be highly skilled and well-paid British jobs.” For Ciara, seeing the Prime Minister at British Gas with the boss of Centrica, which owns British Gas, confirmed her worst fears. “Boris’s visit to the British Gas academy was no surprise really,” she says. “To see him standing side by side with Chris O’Shea made it crystal clear that there was never any intention to stop fire and rehire.” Unions and MPs intend to challenge that arrogance. On Wednesday, Unite led a Day of Action urging MPs to sign Barry Gardiner MP’s Private Members’ Bill to challenge fire and rehire. The Bill is due its second reading on October 22. “MPs from every political party and every corner of the country are saying that fire and rehire is wrong,” says Gardiner. “Bullying and intimidation is not the way forward if we want decent employment and a productive economy. Next month my colleagues in Parliament have a chance to stand up and stop the bullying.” ■endfireandrehire.com ■ AdditionAl REpoRting BY maryam QaiSer Have you or your family been affected by the cuts?

we Talk To Th 30 DAILY MIRROR FRIDAY 17.09.2021 DM1ST exclusive By julie mccaffrey You might find it hard to see the funny side of mopping up blood and body fluids from the floors or scraping human flesh from the walls. But comic Greg Davies is getting plenty of laughs playing a crime scene cleaner in a new BBC1 series. His job as Wicky in The Cleaner is one few would have the stomach for. But every day trauma cleaners get to work removing all traces of gore safely and sensitively. Here, four crime scene cleaners explain fun With Jo Hartley in episode six why on earth they do their jobs… julie.mccaffrey@mirror.co.uk @JulieMcCaffrey No job I’ve seen others retch at jobs whereas I just get stuck in – Steve Carr, 54 Steve has a crime scene cleaner superpower – no sense of smell. Nothing is too fetid for him to face, as a near-fatal car crash 20 years ago left Steve unable to detect even the stinkiest stench. He says: “I’ve seen others retch at jobs, whereas I just get stuck in.” His special skill was handy when he had to tackle a 3ft pile of human excrement left on top of a toilet by a man with mental health problems. the incident led to Steve being crowned Prince of Poo by workmates. Steve, from Sunderland, says: “Nothing fazes me because I’m old school. “In fact, the jobs that need extreme cleans are the best jobs because you can really see a difference afterwards.” the married dad of one began working as a trauma cleaner in 2007 after he was laid off from building work. He has scrubbed dirty protests from prison walls and blood from mortuary floors. But memories of one job still sadden him. He recalls: “An old lady was too frail to tak out her rubbish so a caretaker used to do it her. When he left, everyone else said it wasn their job and it piled up.” It got so bad she had to crawl to get outside. Steve continues: “No one was looking after her. And when they said they’d fixed her telly, they cut the wire so she was stuck in every day with nothing to do. “No grime or gore bothers me. But the stories behind why people need our help can be really upsetting.”

mirror.co.uk DM1ST FRIDAY 17.09.2021 DAILY MIRROR 31 e Real CRIme SCene CleaneRS dirty work Greg Davies as Wicky in The Cleaner too gory Our cleaners must be very sensitive – Ryan Colquitt, 41 AFter a decade working as a trauma cleaner, ryan has spent the last two years managing and training 100 staff at SafeGroup, a specialist and emergency cleaning service. He says: “Crime scene cleaners need to be very sensitive. A family is likely to be in a very emotional state and could want to share every nasty detail of what happened. Our cleaners have to be able to cope not just with what they see, but what they hear, smell and breathe in. they need a genuine drive to help people.” ryan, from Hertfordshire, rarely talks about his job outside working hours. He has dealt with the aftermath of a machete attack which left pools of blood in every room of a property and the lift and paths outside. He cleaned up after a burglary ended in murder and can’t forget picking up an eyeball from train tracks. He says: “I feel lucky to know I have helped people in traumatic situations and fortunate to have a job I can do every day which makes an impact on people who are struggling with a whole spectrum of emotions. “I constantly hear bereaved people say, ‘I wish I could have spoken to him one more time’. “So every day, when I leave home, I make sure that I’m on good terms with my wife and my three kids and I never hold grudges with the wider family or friends.” Smell of blood will never leave me – Steve Broughton, 46 Steve left the corporate world to found SafeGroup 17 years ago, and now employs 70 trauma cleaners nationwide. His company provides a free counselling service for staff, but he has discovered that many have their own ways of coping. One employee who fished testicles from a toilet told himself he was holding boiled eggs. Another tells himself blood is ketchup and faeces is curry. Steve, of Worthing, West Sussex, says: “I cleaned up after a man threw himself through a glass window. Cleaning pints of blood from stairs I zoned out and was focused on the job. “A couple of things haunt me. One is the smell of a dead body, musty with a sweet undertone, and the smell of lots of fresh blood will never leave me.” e for ’t grime busters Trauma cleaners Steve Carr & Yanky Blair The Cleaner, 9.30pm BBC1 tonight. Catch up on iPlayer If I do my job well I can help take pain and trauma away – Yanky Blair, 41 A Steel stomach and selfless heart have kept trauma cleaner Yanky in her job since 2006. She says: “My mum was hit and killed by a bus. Death and tragic situations are part of life and leave families feeling really emotional. “I want to do what I can to help people and make sure others don’t have to see the sad sights of life. there are difficult moments, like removing the little that’s left of a deceased person from train tracks, but I get through it by thinking of their family and the pain they go through when they hear the news, and reminding myself I’m helping in a small way. “I think of my mum and hope a caring person looked after her when she died.” No job has ever made her vomit or faint. She says: “When I first arrive at a job, I think, ‘What do I have to do to make this area perfect again?’ Years ago, a man bled to death at home and a co-worker said he couldn’t take it. “I’ve got a certain strength, so I worked doubly hard cleaning the blood and the clots because I didn’t want his elderly wife to have to see it or deal with it. I’d always do extra things like wash the dishes too.” Yanky never eats on a job and often takes off her clothes outside her home in Croydon, South london, as the smells can linger. She says: “Yes, there are easier ways to make an honest living. Friends are always asking how on earth I do it and my partner always says she couldn’t do it. But bereaved families are already suffering so much. If I do my job well I can help take pain, bad memories and even more trauma away from them. “I love my job. And if you love your job every job is a good job. No other job makes the difference to people’s lives like this one.”

A magnificent new 24 Carat Gold Coin featuring a unique gothic portrait of Queen Elizabeth II reviving one of the most iconic British coins of all time – available for just £39 DM1ST Inspired by the revival of the Medieval era during Victoria’s reign, the first ‘Gothic Crown’ of 1847 is widely considered the greatest achievement of its designer William Wyon RA, arguably The Royal Mint’s finest ever engraver.

Clark’s obverse features a head and shoulders portrait of the monarch in the St Edward’s Crown and an embroidered dress while, around the edge, in Gothic script, as per the 19th century original, is the Latin for ‘Elizabeth by the Grace of God.’ The reverse is based on Wyon’s famous ‘Four Shields’ design.

DM1ST mirror.co.uk FRIDAY 17.09.2021 DAILY MIRROR 35 Dr MiriaM StopparD 60 SECONDS ON... Women’s immune system could have cancer benefit Nordic walking HEALTH NEWS The concept of Nordic walking originates from a training programme for cross-country skiers so they could train during the summer too, not just winter. Nordic walking uses poles similar to ski poles, designed to aid walking and to thrust you forward. It uses all the major muscles in the body so it’s a great full body exercise. Not only that, compared to walking without poles you burn 20% to 40% more calories. Anyone can start Nordic walking as it suits all ages but it’s especially great for older people as the poles give extra stability. You can choose a class that suits your needs, from slow walks to workout walks, from gaining stability to improving fitness. To start you’ll need a pair of special walking poles (you can buy a pair for about £30), comfortable shoes and loose clothing. The poles take the weight off the knees and lower body joints – this makes you feel lighter on your feet. Similar to other forms of moderate activity, regular Nordic walking can lower your risk of developing chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, asthma, stroke and some cancers. Tackling the itch Atopic dermatitis is difficult to treat and requires maintenance treatment too. In two large clinical trials – Measure Up 1 and Measure Up 2 – the inhibitor upadacitinib showed potential as a safe and effective treatment for adults and teenagers with moderate to severe atopic dermatitis. Importantly it blocks the itch-scratch cycle. By week 16 of the study, a higher proportion of patients showed a 90-100% improvement in symptoms (skin signs, pain and quality of life) after 15mg and 30mg of upadacitinib compared with a placebo. The safety profile was good, although acne was a reported sideeffect in a few patients, although less than 5%. Women may have a stronger immune response to a common form of skin cancer than men, says a study led by University of Manchester scientists at the Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute. “It has long been assumed that men are at higher risk of getting nonmelanoma skin cancer than women” says Dr Amaya Viros, from the University of Manchester. “Other lifestyle and behavioural differences between men, such as the type of work or exposure to the sun, are likely to be significant. “However, we also identify for the first time the possible biological reasons, rooted in the immune system, which explains why men may have more severe disease. “Although this is early research, we believe the immune response is sexbiased in the most common form of skin cancer, and highlights that female immunity may offer greater protection than male immunity.” Men seem to develop more aggressive tumours than women, despite receiving identical treatments. Furthermore, in tests on mice, the anti-cancer immune system was Ask Dr Miriam Q I try to stay fit and I play a bit of football at weekends, but recently I ruptured my Achilles tendon. I’ve seen a specialist and he’s told me that I can either have an operation or we can go for a more conservative option. What’s better? A Our approach to this injury in the UK tends to be conservative. A surgeon might typically perform a minimally invasive repair through the skin. There’s robust evidence this technique gives a satisfactory result. Plus there’s also the risk of suffering an infection with open surgery. However, patients who are treated conservatively take longer to return to sport, are less strong, and have less confidence in their Achilles tendon. In addition, they’re not able to push up properly when walking, going up and down stairs or when running. So, you pays your money and you takes your choice. I feel you and your surgeon should make a shared decision otherwise you’ll be unhappy whatever the outcome. Useful information about... condoms • Use a new one each time you have sex. • Condoms have a use-by date written on the packaging. Don’t use out-of-date condoms. • Male condoms are 98% effective as long as they’re used properly and used every time you have sex. increased in female skin and tumours, suggesting a protective effect of the female system. Then the records of 931 patients were inspected from four hospitals in KNOW YOUR MUSCLES Sartorius muscle This thigh muscle is the longest in the human body. It’s also known as the “tailor’s muscle”, because tailors used to sit cross-legged while working. It’s so long that it crosses from side to side and moves both the hip and knee joints. The sartorius muscle pulls the foot and ankle towards the knee of the opposite leg. The action of the sartorius is used in many situations, such as crossing the legs so that the ankle rests on the knee of the opposite leg, sitting cross-legged, or looking at the sole of your foot. • Always use condoms that have the BSI kite mark and CE mark on the packet. This means they’ve been tested to high safety standards. • If you’re sensitive to latex you can use polyurethane or polyisoprene condoms instead. • Condoms need to be stored in the UK and France. The researchers identified that while women usually have a milder form of skin cancer than men, immuno-compromised women develop cancer in a way more similar ‘‘ Female immunity may offer greater protection in skin cancer cases places that aren’t too hot or cold, and away from sharp or rough surfaces that could tear them or wear them away. • It’s possible for a condom to slip off during sex. If this happens to you, you may need emergency contraception and to get checked for STIs. to men, suggesting the protective effect of their immune system on skin cancer may have weakened. The results in patients were confirmed in further samples of sundamaged skin from the USA. In this group, immune cancerfighting pathways and immune cells in skin damaged by sunlight (sometimes a forerunner of skin cancer) were activated. Moreover, this US group showed that two types of human T cells – CD4 and CD8 – which are important in our immune response to skin cancer, were twice as abundant in women as in men. Dr Viros said: “We can’t yet explain why women have a more nuanced immune system than men. “But perhaps it’s reasonable to speculate that women’s evolutionary ability to carry an unborn child of foreign genetic material may require their immunological system to be very finely tuned and have unique skills. “And it suggests if doctors are to offer personalised treatment of cancer, then biological sex should be one of the factors they take into account.” • You can get free condoms from contraception clinics, sexual health clinics and some GP surgeries. • Oil-based products – such as moisturisers and Vaseline – can damage latex and polyisoprene condoms, but they are perfectly safe to use with polyurethane condoms. miriam@mirror.co.uk @MiriamStoppard Sorry, but I can’t answer letters personally Assisted by Hajni Domokos

DM1ST mirror.co.uk FRIDAY 17.09.2021 DAILY MIRROR 37 DEAR COLEEN dearcoleen@mirror.co.uk your problems solved I’m scaRED Of sTanDIng Up TO sTROppy wIfE Dear Coleen I’d like to find out how I can be more assertive with my wife. I always end up backing down because I can’t stand the grief that comes with challenging her on anything. She either shouts and screams or sulks for days. It’s a very one-sided relationship – basically I do what I’m told or there’s hell to pay. I’m sick of this unequal balance and I feel she doesn’t respect me at all. It never used to be like this. What has gone wrong and what can I do about it? School mum accused me of messing about with her man Dear Coleen I’ve found myself in a really awkward situation and don’t know what to do about it. When I collect my daughter from school, I chat to one of the dads in her class, who’s a nice guy. We’re always joking around and, to be frank, I’d rather speak to him than most of the mums. Sometimes I’ll give him a lift back home after drop-off if the weather’s bad, as he usually walks his daughter to school. To cut a long story short, his wife came up to me in the playground the other day and accused me of “messing about” with her husband! I was so shocked, I actually laughed. She started going on about “cosy chats” at school and inviting him into my car. I basically told her that her suspicions couldn’t be any further from the truth, and advised her to take it up with her husband, and then I made a swift exit. However, I feel really angry that I’ve been accused of something I didn’t do and wouldn’t do, as I have a husband and kids. This guy is just someone I pass time with on the school run. What “I’m angry I’ve been accused of something I didn’t do should I do – tell him about the confrontation or just keep quiet and avoid him in the future? Coleen says This isn’t your problem and it sounds to me as if his wife has incredible trust issues. Maybe he’s had an affair in the past or she’s been hurt by someone else. Perhaps she thinks he fancies you and maybe he’s got form. Equally, though, you don’t want to get dragged into their mess and caught in the crossfire when it’s really nothing to do with you. I’d speak to guy and explain that you don’t want to cause a problem between him and his wife. If he wants more details, then explain that she told you she’s not happy with him talking to you or being in your car. I don’t think I would stop being friendly with him, but just take a step back for your own sake and leave the two of them to sort it out. It also sounds as if one or more parents at the school are stirring things up a bit, which could be another reason for his wife’s anger. Coleen says Don’t enable it. I understand you back down all the time for an easier life, but it’s not really making life any easier for you in the long term because you’re deeply unhappy. I don’t know why things changed – that’s something for you to think about and discuss. However, when she starts shouting, walk out. You should refuse to stay and listen – explain you will when she’s calm. She’s almost behaving like a spoilt, naughty child and if she screams and shouts, she’ll get her own way. And the same goes for the sulking. It’s just about standing up for yourself, not in an aggressive or confrontational way. Explain that unless she can talk to you calmly and with respect (as an adult), then you don’t want to have the conversation. you say I’d like to reply to the man who’s worried about taking on his girlfriend’s kids (Dear Coleen, September 13). For what it’s worth, I took on my wife and her four boys when I was 27. My mother was dubious as well, but it’s worked out great. We’ve been married for 47 years, had a son of our own, and now have 29 grandchildren. My life is brilliant and it was the best thing I ever did. At times, life has been a bit up and down, but I expected that. The decision is yours, but I would say go for it. Phil, South Wales PROBLEMS? Tell Coleen Nolan about them and she’ll give you an honest answer... every weekday in the Daily Mirror email: dearcoleen@mirror.co.uk – sorry, but Coleen can’t reply personally WRiTe To: Coleen Nolan, The Daily Mirror, One Canada Square, London E14 5AP always TOO TIRED OR BUsy TO HaVE sEX Dear Coleen I’m a 34-year-old mum of two with a full-time job and, the upshot is, I never have the time or energy to have sex with my husband. We’re lucky if we do it once a month. While neither of us seems particularly bothered that we do it so infrequently, I know deep down that it’s not good for our relationship in the long term. Any tips on how to revive things? Coleen says You have to make the time – even if it’s just a couple of hours a week to spend together. What about when the kids go to bed? When children come along, it’s a work in progress and it’s easy to ignore the fact that you’re a couple. Sex doesn’t have to be every day but, if the lack of it is worrying you, then tell your hubby you don’t want to lose the intimate side of your relationship. The good thing is, you’ve realised now that it could become a problem, so sit down and work it out. With sex, I always think the more you have it, the more you want it. So, while you might have to make an effort initially, you’ll get into a rhythm. If all you feel like doing at the end of the day is flopping on the couch, then flop on the couch together. Sometimes you get home at night and feel exhausted, but why not get a babysitter? Once you make an effort to go out, you’ll enjoy yourself. I’m sure when you first met, you were staying up until all hours and still getting up for work the next day. Sign up to my newsletter! I’m excited to let you know that I’ve launched a fab newsletter, which I hope you’ll sign up to receive once a week via email. I’ll be sharing my thoughts on love, life and relationships, as well as my pick of the week’s readers’ problems. Sign up by visiting mirror.co.uk/coleen

The deal means Amazon Prime customers will be able to buy the ethical retailer’s products with same-day delivery and scheduled twohour time slots. Initially available in Glasgow, the service will be expanded to other parts of the country later this year. Co-op boss Steve Murrells said the pandemic had accelerated changes in shopping habits and its Amazon deal will help meet consumer demands for greater convenience. However, the GMB union, which represents Amazon warehouse super steps to recovery Superdry slashed its annual losses by 78% to £36.7million despite shop closures in lockdown. Reporting on the 12 months to April 24, the fashion retailer said it was boosted by its wholesale arm and the axing of online discounts. Sales dived 21.1% to £556.1m but boss Julian Dunkerton said: “Trading has been encouraging since the reopening of our stores.” Elsewhere, online retailer THG said it will float its beauty arm on the stock exchange next year. ftse 100 Abrdn ..........................................261.6 +1.2 Anglo American ..................2818.5 -135.0 AB Foods ................................1888.5 +36.0 Admiral Group .......................3511.0 -7.0 AstraZeneca .......................... 8141.0 +16.0 Aviva PLC .................................405.3 +2.8 BAE Systems...........................554.2 +5.2 B&M European .......................594.6 +1.8 BAT ........................................... 2663.5 -6.0 Balfour Beatty ........................277.4 +2.0 Barclays.....................................182.7 +2.8 BHP Group .............................1968.2 -68.3 BR Land Co ...............................513.8 +6.6 BP ................................................306.0 -3.3 BT .................................................154.7 -0.2 Capita Group .............................49.2 +0.6 Carnival ..................................1509.2 +36.0 Centrica ...................................... 50.8 -0.1 Compass ................................1488.5 +40.0 Diageo .....................................3467.0 +8.5 Direct Line ...............................304.5 +0.1 Dixons Carphone ...................135.3 -3.6 Easyjet ......................................606.6 +40.6 Ferguson .............................10680.0 +185.0 Frasers Group ........................656.0 -1.0 GlaxoSmithKline ................. 1395.0 -2.6 Halfords ....................................304.0 +8.8 Hays ............................................172.1 +0.7 up 11.0 at 7027.5 Oil = $75.24 HSBC ..........................................368.9 -3.6 Imperial Brands ................... 1551.0 -1.5 International Airlines Grp .142.5 +5.3 ITV .................................................110.0 +1.1 JD Sports ................................ 1142.0 +0.5 Kingfisher ................................368.0 +7.7 Land Securities .....................692.6 +9.4 Legal & General .....................283.8 +3.8 Lloyds ...........................................44.8 +0.6 Marks & Spencer ...................182.2 -3.9 Morrison ....................................291.1 +0.5 National Grid ...........................967.0 +7.3 NatWest Group .......................212.0 +1.7 Next .........................................8002.0 +82.0 Ocado .......................................1769.0 -39.0 Pearson ....................................725.6 0.0 Persimmon.............................2791.0 +15.0 Prudential .............................1462.0 +11.0 Reckitt .................................... 5893.0 -2.0 RELX .........................................2198.0 +32.0 Rentokil Initial .......................605.0 +8.4 Rio Tinto .................................5010.0 -209.0 Rolls-Royce ..............................109.1 +3.6 Royal Dutch Shell B ............1459.6 -15.6 Royal Mail ................................490.2 +5.7 J Sainsbury .............................282.0 -3.7 SSE .............................................1675.0 +24.5 Severn Trent ......................... 2851.0 +34.0 workers, said Co-op customers will be shocked by the tie-up given concerns over the online giant’s health and safety record, as well as the low tax it pays despite its huge revenues and profits.

Chairwoman Sharon White said despite supply chain problems and the UK shortage of HGV drivers, John Lewis had taken steps to ensure Christmas will not be ruined. It is bringing in goods early and has hired more drivers, in addition to booking its own fleet of cargo ships. Tobacco giant Philip Morris has clinched the £1.1billion takeover of asthma drugs firm Vectura, after 75% of its investors backed the deal.

When I take the car for its annual deep-clean valet at the car wash, I get given a freebie air freshener, which smells like loo cleaner, and I usually have to stop and chuck it in the bin before I asphyxiate on the motorway. In an ideal world, I love the scent of a brand new car, highly polished wood panels, soft, buttery leather and a glove box that reeks of money. Which, according to car lease firm leaseelectriccar.co.uk, makes me a private and conservative person who craves stability. But as that sounds like someone’s dad rather than me, then I’d prefer to fill my Mini with fresh citrusy scents like lime and grapefruit. The choice of car scent, just like perfume or aftershave, reveals a lot about our personality, says the car leasing firm, and a person who likes a citrus smell is a confident chatterbox who’s the life and soul of the party. I’d also like to add probably very beautiful, extremely funny and likely to win the lottery very soon. While people who choose vanilla are successful and fiercely loyal friends, those who like berry smells are imaginative, artistic, and creative. Floral scents are for down-to-earth people who love the great outdoors, while coconut is for carefree, quirky dreamers who like to blend in with the crowd. Bubblegum means they’re show-offy social butterflies and, finally, chocolatey smells are for caring and passionate people. Saying that, I often wondered why so many car fresheners smell like Toilet Duck, but car magazine Auto Express recently voted Lynx the best of a bad bunch. And I’d hazard a guess that people who opt for the manly smell of Lynx in their car think they’re God’s gift to women and drive a penis extension on wheels. ■ ■ Email me at siobhan.mcnally@mirror.co.uk or write to Community Corner, PO Box 791, Winchester SO23 3RP.

Head dinner lady Mrs Munn used to walk round rapping transgressors over the knuckles with her wooden spoon if they chewed with their mouths open or didn’t hold their cutlery properly. She’d roar: “A pen is for writing, Miss McNally. [Rap] Write out 100 times, I must not use my knife like a pen.” And I never did use my knife like a pen ever again. One reader sounds like she went to the French girls’ school in Harry Potter, Beauxbatons. “I went to a technical school here on the Isle of Sheppey,” says Judy Moor. “We had a very strict headmistress and there were lots of rules. We had to wear house shoes inside, never be seen in our uniform outside without gloves and hat, and bring our Silly pet Selfie “Our Lhasa apsos, Phoebe and Tilly, were out on a walk with Border terrier Sonny who we’re looking after for friends while they’re on holiday. They all get on really well but it took me 10 minutes of bribing them with treats to get them to sit like this,” says Alan Holder, of Leamington Spa in Warwickshire. Him? No he doesn’t want a treat – he says I can have two tasty The Beauxbatons and a slice of gypsy tart and cream own napkin for lunch, which had to be folded correctly. Our uniform was purple and we used to be known as the Purple Perils. “But the best bit was the school dinners – delicious gypsy tart, which is a Kent delicacy.” She adds: “It was a really good school with excellent teachers, which at the time I didn’t really appreciate.” Table manners took a bit of a battering at school when Mark Summers in Peacehaven, East Sussex, was a lad. He writes: “I remember the lumpy mashed potatoes, spam fritters and what I used to call hammer and chisel. “You had to use your fork to cut what was supposed to be a traybake and the spoon was used as a chisel, hence, hammer and chisel.” ■ What are your best – or worst – school days memories?

40 DAILY MIRROR FRIDAY 17.09.2021 DM1ST theatre with NEIL NORMAN STUNNING Samantha Barks as Elsa £2.5K IN OUR NEW WEEKLY COMPETITION FROZEN – THE MUSICAL ★★★★ Theatre Royal Drury Lane until June 26 2022. Tickets: 020 7087 7760 Walt Disney’s animated film about two sisters separated by the prodigious power of one (Elsa) and the gung-ho vulnerability of the other (Anna) gets underneath the permafrost when live flesh and blood actors inhabit the roles. The additional songs are fine but the entire edifice is built around that number. And when Samantha Barks’ Elsa reaches the first chorus of Let It Go and unleashes her powers to create a crystalline Snow Queen/White Witch vision, the audience is agog at the awesome spectacle. When her costume transforms itself from sober green into shimmering, spangled white, the roar of delight shakes the walls of this beautifully restored theatre. This is Disney magic on a grand scale. The story and characters remain intact, from dodgy Prince Hans (Oliver Ormson) to endearing ice seller Kristoff (Obioma Ugoala). Barks is magnificent in her melancholy and Stephanie McKeon as her bouncy, irrepressible sister Anna is the perfect foil. Olaf the snowman and Sven the reindeer are superbly realised by puppeteers (Craig Gallivan and Mikayla Jade/Ashley Birchall) and add humour to a relatively grim tale. The sets are stupendous, gradually evolving with the aid of sophisticated video effects from gothic gloom to frozen wasteland complete with an astonishingly long ice bridge. A chorus line of ‘naked’ Nordic types clutching birch twigs is a welcome intrusion of slapstick comedy. But the message is loud and clear. Prince ‘Charming’ may not be the man you think he is. Sisterhood is better than falsehood. And that shy bloke in the corner might just be the man you’re really looking for.

Tickets: 020 7492 0834 There was only a slim chance a stage version of the greatest time-travel movie ever made would prove similarly successful. But the musical is faithful to the movie while adding its own theatrical grace notes. Marty McFly (Olly Dobson) still has problems with his parents – vodka-swilling mum (Rosanna Hyland) and cowardly dad (Hugh Coles) – and Doc Brown (Roger Bart) is still wild-eyed and wilder-coiffed. The Flux Capacitor is still the power pack that will take the adapted DeLorean from 1985 to 1955 in 7.5 seconds and the Booking now DRACULA: THE UNTOLD STORY Leeds Playhouse, September 25-October 9 (then touring until November 13) leedsplayhouse.co.uk Conducted like a living graphic novel, this is the Count’s immortal story told from a female perspective and set in the 1960s. warnings about altering the past still go unheeded. It takes a few scenes to ignite but, once the engine is revving, it gathers an unstoppable momentum. The songs are geared to each period – doo-wop and faux-Phil Spector songs dominate in the 1955 era while the 1980s music is more than vaguely reminiscent of Robert Palmer’s Addicted To Love. Tim Lutkin’s lighting and the video projections by Finn Ross create the illusion of the speeding car and the climax is a knockout. There is plenty of EMOTIONAL emotional heart too along Rosanna Hyland with an edgy relationship and Olly Dobson between Marty and his teenage mum – “My mum has the hots for me!” A blast and a half of highperformance performances, staggering special effects and a fistful of decent songs. Va-va-voom!

mirror.co.uk Movies DM1ST with ANDY LEA FRIDAY 17.09.2021 DAILY MIRROR 41 STAR RATINGS ★★★★★ Excellent ★★★★ Good ★★★ Worth a look ★★ Poor ★ Don’t bother Queen of the night EVERYBODY’S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE Cert 12A ★★★ Selected cinemas and on Amazon Prime now According to this feel-good musical, the most important thing in life is to be true to one’s self. In the spirit of that message, I confess to finding some of the sequences in this stagey adaptation of the smash West End show rather painful. For many, the titular routine will be a delight. But for me, a tsunami of winces erupted as a troupe of twentysomething drama-school graduates in school uniforms loudly spread rumours about Jamie through the medium of dance. Still, those more accustomed to the ROSE PLAYS JULIE Cert 15 ★★★★ In cinemas now over-the-top conventions of the West End stage (and not scarred by childhood memories of Rod Hull’s Pink Windmill Show) should find plenty here to enjoy. The film’s greatest asset is its lead. Age aside, 24-year-old newcomer Max Harwood is perfectly cast as gay schoolboy Jamie New. We meet him on the morning of his 16th birthday as he’s lugging a bag of newspapers up the hilly streets of Sheffield while dreaming of becoming a drag queen. A plan to release his outrageous alter ego at his school prom puts him on a collision course with his homophobic dad (Ralph Ineson), a rule-bound teacher (Sharon This sounds like another worthy issue-based family drama but co-writers and directors Christine Molloy and Joe Lawlor toy with those expectations as their script takes some very unexpected twists and turns. Student vet Rose (Ann Skelly) is learning how to euthanise large animals at her Dublin university. But her mind’s focus isn’t on the grisly lessons. She’s just tracked down her birth mother, a jobbing London-based actress called Ellen (Orla Brady). After her initial approach is rebuffed, Rose turns into a stalker, turning up on a film set then posing as a house buyer so she can root through Ellen’s possessions. Clearly, something is not right with this troubled young woman. After finally engineering a meeting with Ellen, she learns the dark story of her adoption. In response, Rose takes on the persona of Julie (the name on her birth certificate) to get dangerously close to her biological father, a sinister archaeologist named Peter (Aidan Gillen). Molloy and Lawlor stage this unusual family reunion with pitch-black comedy and nail-biting suspense. ‘‘ Charismatic Harwood has the moves and voice to carry the showstoppers RUMOURS Will Jamie’s classmates accept his drag queen alter ego? Horgan) and a school bully (Samuel Bottomley). Thankfully, his mum (Sarah Lancashire) is supportive and local drag clobber seller Hugo Battersby (Richard E Grant) agrees to act as his mentor. The charismatic Harwood has the moves and the voice to carry the play’s showstoppers. But there are quieter, more reflective songs too and one original number written and sung by Holly Johnson. Here the film leaves the feelgood formula behind to deliver a refreshingly cinematic montage about the history of gay rights. The title song is my latest earworm but I suspect this sequence will be my most enduring memory. STALKER Ann Skelly as Rose, who sets out to track her birth mother 12 MIGHTY ORPHANS Cert 12A ★★★ In cinemas now We know pretty much where this true story is heading from the off. Archive footage takes us to the Great Depression of the 1930s, as Martin Sheen’s honeyed voiceover introduces us to The Mighty Mites, an American football team who defied the odds. This is an CROWDPLEASER Underdogs triumph in touching true story underdog sports movie. There will be triumph over adversity, seemingly insurmountable obstacles and a rousing finale. Luke Wilson plays saintly PE teacher and war hero Rusty Russell who uproots his English teacher wife Juanita (Vinessa Shaw) and two young daughters from their comfortable life in Texas to the dustbowl of Fort Worth to take a job in an impoverished school for orphans. Determined to motivate his unruly charges, he takes on far better resourced schools in the high-school football league. As he has just 12 players, he knows he and Sheen’s boozy assistant coach will have to rely on us-versus-them psychology and innovative tactics. Early successes turn the lads into national celebrities until rival schools resort to dirty tricks. It’s predictable but this rousing and unshowy crowdpleaser proves that the old formula still works. PARODY Karen Gillan heads up a brilliant cast in a terrible film GUNPOWDER MILKSHAKE Cert 15 ★ In cinemas, NOW and Sky Cinema now If you haven’t seen an action movie since the mid 90s, prepare to be amazed by this hyper-stylised bloodbath. Sadly, I suspect every cinemagoer and Sky Cinema subscriber will recognise at least one of the far better movies this far-from-explosive film attempts to rip off. A fatally miscast Karen Gillan plays Sam, a charisma-free version of Uma Thurman’s Kill Bill assassin who does a Léon by breaking a contract to protect an innocent young girl (Chloe Coleman) in a heightened John Wick-style fantasy world of rule-based organised crime. After teaming up with her estranged killer mum (Lena Headey) and her Kingsman-esque secret society of gun-toting librarians (Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett, Carla Gugino), Sam has to fight off a gang of goons sent by a Russian crime lord (Ralph Ineson) seeking revenge for the assassination of his son (John Wick again). Director Navot Papushado’s use of garish neon colours and consciously artificial sets is more likely to induce headaches than gasps of admiration. The dialogue is witless, the heroine is dull and, worst of all, the fights scenes are unconvincing. After nearly two hours, we get to the finale – a sub-Zack Snyder slow-motion gunfight ironically cut to a Dylan cover – and this shallow spectacle has tipped into self-parody.

DAILY MIRROR FRIDAY 17.09.2021 BOOKS 42 SAVED Bob with old pal Vic Reeves And Away… Bob Mortimer Simon & Schuster £20 There’s a compilation on YouTube of the “true or false” stories Bob Mortimer has told on BBC One comedy quiz Would I Lie To You? and it’s had over 13 million views – probably because it’s one of the funniest things you could hope to see. Bob’s exuberantly surreal true stories of his younger days give the impression of a popular chap enjoying mischief and mayhem with a gang of loyal friends but, as he explains in his fascinating and often poignant memoir, Vic Reeves rescued him from a life of crushing loneliness when Bob was 25. His father had died in a car accident when Bob was seven and, from that day on, his focus was on making his beloved mother happy. His schooldays were dogged by crippling shyness and his dreams were shattered as a teen when he was rejected by Middlesbrough FC. Join the Mirror Book club His university days were the loneliest of his life and he suffered from depression for five years. This is, of course, no misery memoir as Bob’s account of tough times is punctuated with comic escapades. But he comes across as such a genial, humble and good-natured man that his low self-esteem seems especially misplaced. Part two opens in 1988 with Bob living in a hostel for the homeless in London, working as a Legal Aid solicitor and feeling demoralised by the difficulty of making a difference to people in need. Then Alan, an old acquaintance from Middlesbrough, knocked on Bob’s door and invited him to watch a friend performing above a nearby pub. Bob reluctantly went along because it was the only social contact on his horizon. The show was Vic Reeves’ Big Night Out. Bob was bowled over. He and Vic were introduced after the show and Bob started going to see him perform regularly, drinking afterwards with Alan, Vic and their friends. When the show transferred to a larger venue, Vic asked Bob to come on stage to BOOK CLUB Our brand-new book of the month is The Weekend by charlotte Wood and we’re giving away 20 copies at facebook.com/groups/mirrorbookclub We’d love you to read it and tell us what you think… Jude, Wendy and Adele, all in their 70s, are lifelong friends of Sylvie, who recently died, and it falls to the trio to clear out her chaotic beachside home.

Free UK p&p for orders over £20. Reluctant comedy hero present him with a cheque. From there, Bob slowly became more and more involved in performing and writing, and the show went from strength to strength before being commissioned by Channel 4 in 1990. Bob ditched the day job and embraced his new-found rock ’n’ roll status, hobnobbing with the likes of Jarvis Cocker and Liam Gallagher. He invited Groucho Club drinking buddies to appear on their most popular show Shooting Stars and went on to make a series of wellloved shows with Vic, from Catterick to House Of Fools. But he happily left the showbiz life behind after meeting his partner Lisa and becoming a father of two. Open heart surgery in 2015 was clearly a defining experience but survival gave Bob a new lease of life. Filming Gone Fishing with Paul Whitehouse, now into its fourth series, helped him find his own voice in front of the camera. He ends by pleading with readers to take “a quiet one” under their wing and encourage them to shine. We owe Vic a debt of gratitude for leading the inimitable Bob Mortimer into the spotlight. BY cHARLOTTE HEATHcOTE PODCASTS Mum’s The Word When DJ Ashley James found out she was pregnant, she vowed not to follow in the footsteps of other celeb parents and start a blog or podcast. Yet when her son Alfie was born six months ago, she was overwhelmed by the support she received from fellow parents. So her new podcast explores what it is like to be a mum and she has no-holds-barred discussions with guests. In the first episode, Ashley tells influencer Roxie Nafousi how she never thought of herself as maternal until she had Alfie, and explains how she navigated the shift in her identity. Daughters Of War Dinah Jefferies HarperCollins, £8.99 It’s 1944 and in a Dordogne village three sisters are living under Nazi occupation. Nurse Hélène sees it as her duty to care for her sisters – headstrong Elise who has joined the Resistance and dreamer Florence who longs for everything to return to how it was before the war. But one night the sisters’ quiet lives are turned upside down when Allied fighters knock on their door in dire need of help and they all find themselves in deadly peril. Dinah Jefferies, author of bestselling The Tea Planter’s Wife, is a wonderful writer and her story of wartime bravery is a joy to read, full of evocative descriptions of life in rural France. Apples Never fall Liane Moriarty Michael Joseph, £20 Ace tennis players Joy and Stan have been married for nearly 50 years but, when Joy vanishes after sending baffling text messages to her four children, police suspect the worst. Even more suspiciously, Stan’s face is covered in scratches and he refuses to discuss the blazing row he had with his wife before she disappeared. As the Delaney offspring struggle to make sense of their parents’ relationship, they wonder if they really knew them at all. Moriarty is the bestselling author of Big Little Lies and Nine Perfect Strangers which have both been turned into successful TV series. Not surprisingly, TV rights have already been snapped up for this compelling domestic drama. with No Time To Die: The Official James Bond Podcast After repeated delays due to the pandemic, the new film in the James Bond franchise will finally come to cinemas this month. And to mark the occasion, this six-part podcast series takes listeners behind the scenes of one of the world’s most famous movie series. Listen in to interviews with Daniel Craig, who speaks about taking on the role for the fifth time, and hear from co-stars Rami Malek and Naomie Harris. Billie Eilish and composer Hans Zimmer also discuss the new theme song and soundtrack. NEW fIcTION freckles Cecelia Ahern HarperCollins, £16.99 eLIZABeTh ARCheR Allegra, known to her friends as Freckles, works as a parking warden, poses nude for money and sometimes sleeps with strangers. But she starts to reconsider her life after she slaps a parking ticket on a Ferrari and the car’s furious owner tells her that everyone is the average of the five people they spend the most time with. Apart from her dad, Allegra has no one she can count on – her mother left when she was a baby and her ex-boyfriend has gone off with her best friend – so she resolves to find a new set of five people to share her life with. Cecelia Ahern never follows the crowd and her latest novel is a delight – funny, thought provoking and original. frontline Dr Hilary Jones Welbeck, £18.99 Hilary Jones is Good Morning Britain’s resident doctor so it’s no surprise that his debut novel is awash with fascinating medical detail. A sweeping historical drama set during the First World War, it’s the story of two idealistic teenagers who join the war effort in 1914 and eventually fall in love. Grace, spirited daughter of an aristocrat, works as a nurse at a French field hospital while dockworker’s son Will serves as a stretcher bearer on the frontline and has ambitions to become a doctor. Squeamish readers might baulk at graphic descriptions of childbirth, battlefield surgery and the brutality of war but this is an enthralling tale and Jones’ medical expertise never gets in the way of the action. BY EMMA LEE-POTTER It’s The Economy Ever wondered what the national debt is and how it affects us? In this new eight-week series, presenter Nicola Walton explains complex economic ideas in just 15 minutes. So, in the time it takes to have a coffee break, listeners can gain an insight into how bad inflation can get, or why the gender pay gap is bad for the economy. In the first episode, former head of the civil service Gus O’Donnell explains why a country having a high GDP doesn’t always mean people are living well – and how prostitution and illegal drugs play a role in official calculations.

ANY SITUATION SERVICE WITH 35 YEARS EXPERIENCE Lindsey Buckingham Lindsey Buckingham They were the world’s biggest band but Fleetwood Mac were also a spell-binding soft rock soap opera. Scandalous affairs were their trademark, usually with each other. Three years ago, Stevie Nicks, Lindsey’s ex, gave her bandmates an ultimatum: “Either he goes or I do”. Or, as Peggy Mitchell might have put it, “Get aht of my band!” The result was Mac-xit. Lindsey – who wrote Tusk, Big Love and Go Your Own Way – was sacked. It got worse. The guitarist/ singer suffered a major heart attack, lost his voice and wife Kristen filed for divorce. Buckingham says this new solo album, his first for 10 years, was mostly written before all that, which must put him on a par with Mystic Meg. It’s prophetic! On The Wrong Side is sunny, radio-friendly West Coast power-pop about finding his path away from the Fleetwood Mac circus. The driving Swan Song channels his frustrations with the band’s aversion to recording, asking, “Has the queen [Stevie?] lost her sight?” Dreamy but defiant I Don’t Mind tackles love’s ups and downs, while infectious opening track Scream is an honest celebration of married love, where joy and pain must co-exist, he says. Recorded in Lindsey’s home studio, these 10 tracks show he’s lost none of his songwriting knack. The melancholy Santa Rosa, inspired by Kristen trying to move the family onto a rural horse ranch, comes with an immense chorus, as does the addictive toe-tapper Power Down. Blind Love is 60s-inspired with a touch of the Beach Boys and he covers the plaintive haunting 60s folk classic Time. Ah time, where does it go? Lindsey Buckingham is nearly 72, an age when most rockers are content with churning out their greatest hits. But this, and his 2017 album with Christine McVie, show he’s hit a new creative peak. Last year the most popular holiday destinations were Cyprus, Greece, Malta, Spain, Portugal and Turkey. * *TGI 2015 Q4 release, Daily Mirror print readers, base: people who went on holiday/short break in the last 12 months The Vaccines Back In The City Of Love Who could be anti these Vaccines? They’re smart, inventive and fun: ‘When I exercise my demons, I just take them to the gym,’ sings Justin Young on the title track. The Londoners foresee a dystopian future when emotions are artificially dispensed. Nods to video games and spaghetti westerns cement the danceable indie joy. The Ronnie Wood Band Mr Luck – A Tribute To Jimmy Reed Woody pays his respects to Mississippi blues pioneer Jimmy Reed – a massive influence on the Rolling Stones – with the second of his live album trilogy. It’s pure blues played with obvious love. The band include ex-Stone Mick Taylor with guests Bobby Womack, Mick Hucknall and Paul Weller. Metallica The Black Album The one with Enter Sandman. The one that took the one-time thrash metal band to new heights, selling 16 million copies in the States alone. Here, they opted for simpler songs, occasional subtlety, and even soaring harmonies on Nothing Else Matters. This 30th anniversary re-release has lost none of its power. Still remarkable. The 3 most important things for Mirror readers when on holiday are feeling relaxed and stress-free, sunny weather and sandy beach. ** **Mouthpiece panel survey, Travel and cruises 2015

And it’s no surprise that Boris Johnson’s mate Michael Gove has been handed a job at the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government. Matt Richardson Scunthorpe, North Lincs ■ How stupid do the Government think we are? Boris Johnson decides that now is the right time to carry out a big reshuffle. It just so happens that the announcements are made on the day there’s a vote in the House of Commons on the £20-aweek cut to Universal The BIG IssUe Boris Johnson has carried out a sweeping reshuffle of his Cabinet and ministerial posts – and the long-awaited overhaul of his top team saw under-fire Education Secretary Gavin Williamson sacked and replaced with Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi. Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab was shunted to the Ministry of Justice and he was replaced by Liz Truss. You say….. Credit for six million people! Now there’s a coincidence. Richard Swift Tunbridge Wells, Kent ■ It beggars belief that Dominic Raab held on for as long as he did. But why give him the title of Deputy Prime Minister? Raab should have been sacked after he stayed on holiday while Kabul fell to the Taliban. He was living it up on the beach while we saw awful scenes on the TV about what was happening in Afghanistan. Did he not know the situation there was bad before he jetted off on his hols? David Bond, Portsmouth ■ Gaffe-prone Gavin Williamson was bound to be shown the door in the reshuffle. The chaos he caused as Education Secretary can never be undone. The education of so many children was thwarted during lockdown and his ineptitude caused misery across the profession. Philip Jameson, Mansfield, Notts ■ Boris Johnson had to carry out a reshuffle before we head into the winter when there is a real threat that Covid restrictions could be imposed again. He needs the public behind him if things get worse. But is moving around his cronies really helping matters? From what I can tell, he hasn’t really put anyone in charge that has much public support. He needed to send out a clear message that government knows what it is doing. From where I’m sitting, it doesn’t look like it. Paul Grattan, Wolverhampton ■ The reshuffle announced by Boris Johnson has been done, not because the ministers were poor at their respective jobs, but rather to allow some new faces at the trough. This country needs honesty and competency to pull us out of this Brexit and Covid mess. But I can’t see that happening with this government! John Fellows, Blyth Northumberland Britney’s Lucky in love Congratulations to Britney Spears on her engagement to partner Sam. It’s lovely to see her looking so happy and well. Sam has been a constant in her life for five years and he seems to have put a big smile on her face. Hopefully now that her dad Jamie has filed to end the conservatorship controlling her life and career, she can now move on and live the life she wants to live. You deserve it Britney! Harriet Reynolds Carlisle I’m happy for royals to rule ■ ■ There are still people talking about abolishing the Royal Family once the Queen dies (Your Voice, September 14). I wonder who they would replace them with? It fills me with dread to think of a Trump, Putin or Johnson type. Many of my friends agree that William and Kate would make an excellent couple to represent this country. I know several members of the Royal Family have lost the public’s respect but we all have skeletons in the closet. D Hughesdon, South London ■ ■ I’m glad the British Medical Association has seen sense and abandoned a 15-year opposition to assisted dying. This is a big step forwards in allowing doctors to stop the suffering of those dying and prolonging methods that only add to their distress. I hope the Government will legislate to make euthanasia legal, giving medics the option of facilitating a patient’s death without fear of being prosecuted. Jenny Pain, Chatham, Kent Tweet of the day Comedian Jason Manford is looking for inspiration from his sick bed... @JasonManford – Recovering from a shoulder operation today, so having a day in bed. What films/telly shows are you watching & recommend? I spent yesterday watching The Tomorrow War, The Imitation Game, Bob’s Burgers & Married at First Sight! It was a mixed bag! ■ ■ The complacency displayed over Covid by nearly all Tory MPs in choosing not to wear face masks in Parliament and at a recent packed Cabinet meeting is appalling. The Chair of the BMA recently said they should “lead by example”. Their talk of a plan B is like shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted. Masks should never have been made voluntary on ‘Freedom Day’. Mark Iles, Newark Nottinghamshire Pub quiz answers How many of our daily pub quiz brainteasers did you manage to get right? 1.

It’s all got serious now, however, as only three remain in the grand final, SEX EDuCATION Netflix The opening scenes of this third, long-awaited season get straight down to business. It’s a hilarious montage of sexual encounters, all set to The Rubinoos’ I Think We’re Alone Now. This comedy drama has become a cult hit, beginning with a focus on teenager Otis (Asa Butterfield), who is mostly mortified that his mother Dr Jean Milburn (a glorious Gillian Anderson) is an extremely candid sex therapist. The show has now morphed into more of an ensemble piece, which so larking about has been replaced by focus and fancy food. After a week that has included elevating the humble pie, impressing a Chef ’s Table hosted by Tom Kerridge and putting their all into a personal dish, the cream of the crop are left. Joe Swash, Kadeena Cox and Megan McKenna have knocked out the competition and are all vying for the crown.

Joe says he’s going for the treble – jungle champion, ice skating champion, MasterChef champion. THE MORNING SHOW Apple TV+ Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon return for season two of this hit US drama, which tackles workplace power dynamics. Picking up after the explosive events of the season one finale, which saw the co-anchors on The Morning Show tell some hard truths about the toxic, misogynistic culture at the UBA network as it tries to emerge from the wreckage.

In a match full of storylines and sub plots, Castleford-bound Mamo scored twice and created another against his future club. When full-back Ashton, 23, completed his hat-trick early in the second half, the visitors led by 32 points and the Tigers’ careers of coach Daryl Powell and a host of departing stars looked certain to be over. Then Peter Mata’utia, who will join Powell at the Wolves next season, scored twice in four minutes, and by the time Mike Cooper was sent off with 15 minutes left, the gap was down to just eight points. But Warrington somehow regrouped to see the game out, ensuring Powell’s eight-year tenure at Castleford is now at an end.

At that point the drama that unfolded was unimaginable. The game looked over as a contest inside the opening 32 minutes, by which time the Tigers trailed 26-0. Mamo ensured the home side got BeTFreD TaBLe off to a nightmare start. He created the first try for Ashton before supporting a Chris Hill break to score himself. Stefan Ratchford converted both and added a penalty before Ashton and Mamo stepped forward again. When Gareth Widdop’s kick downfield took a wicked bounce, Ashton was the first to react and dived under the posts for his second try. Then Mamo completed his own double, swooping on a loose ball deep inside his own half and P W D L F A Pts Win% Catalans D 22 19 0 3 680 386 38 86.36 St Helens 20 16 0 4 534 203 32 80.00 Warrington 21 15 1 5 588 354 31 73.81 Wigan 24 14 0 10 375 377 28 58.33 Hull K R 19 10 0 9 485 422 20 52.63 Leeds 23 12 0 11 520 428 24 52.17 Castleford 23 11 0 12 437 552 22 47.83 Hull 20 8 1 11 397 432 17 42.50 Huddersfield 23 8 0 15 418 492 16 34.78 Wakefield 23 8 0 15 438 536 16 34.78 Salford 21 6 0 15 376 570 12 28.57 Leigh 21 2 0 19 332 828 4 9.52 sprinting down the main stand touchline to score. It was 32-0 when Warrington capitalised on another loose ball, Robbie Mulhern this time sending Ashton away for his third. But then Mata’utia scored his quick-fire double, and when Josh Charnley was sin-binned for a tip tackle on Jordan Turner, the Cas player responded with another home try. It was soon 24-32 as Grant Millington pounced to score in his final game for the Tigers, and shortly afterwards Cooper was dismissed for a high shot on Liam Watts. With 15 minutes still left the home side were suddenly unlikely favourites. But a Ratchford penalty eased Warrington’s nerves before Connor Wrench sealed the win – and play-off spots for Leeds and Hull KR – by touching down. WOMEN’S CRICKET ENGLAND v NZ, 1ST ODI GOOD OpeninG KniGHT ENGLAND Women held their nerve to win by 30 runs in the first oDI in Bristol. Heather Knight’s side reduced New Zealand to 177-9, chasing 242 to win. But Amy Satterthwaite, who was 79 not out, and Leigh Kasperek put on 34 for the Leeds v Hull KR 7.45pm RICHARD AGAR says last night’s Castleford-Warrington game had no impact on his side’s build-up to tonight’s clash. Leeds had to wait for the Tigers’ result before knowing if they must beat the Robins. But Agar (right) said: “We’ve been preparing for a must-win game against a good team – no other ifs, buts or permutations. “We’ve prepared to take care of things ourselves regardless of what happens elsewhere. you can’t rely on other things going your way.” Salford v St Helens 7.45pm KrISTIAN WOOLF has praised young half-backs Jack Welsby and Lewis Dodd – as veteran playmaker Jonny Lomax returns. Lomax limped out of the home win over Leigh in late August, but is set to make his comeback tonight ahead of the play-offs. Welsby and Dodd have been outstanding in his absence and Woolf said: “Lewis and Jack are a big part of why we can finish the back end of the year so strongly. “It’s one thing knowing what a young player can do, it’s another him doing it consistently under pressure – that’s the impressive thing with both of those.” Wakefield v Hull FC 7.45pm WILLIE PoCHING wants Wakefield to finish the season on a high with his own hopes of landing the coach’s job still up in the air. Caretaker boss Poching (below) steered Trinity to four wins from five before last weekend’s defeat at Leigh. The Kiwi said: “I’m contracted here for next season as an assistant and I’m at peace with whatever happens - I’d support another head coach. “The guys are focused on finishing as strongly as possible - they’re itching to go out.” Wigan v Catalans 7.45pm ADrIAN LAm is playing a game of chess ahead of Wigan’s play-offs campaign. The Warriors will finish fourth whatever the result tonight and Lam has shuffled his pack. “It’s all about moving the chess pieces,” he explained. “We’ve got to take a few things into consideration. “One is our momentum, two is our confidence, three is a really strong performance in front of our home fans and four is to make sure we get through with minimal risk of injury, suspension or fatigue. We’re prioritising what’s important to us. “Doing that will give us the best opportunity next week.” last wicket. Lauren Winfield-Hill (below) then ran out Kasperek to give England a 1-0 lead in the five-match series. Captain Knight, who hit 89, said: “We’re learning lots as a side. We’ve got a lot of experience but also trying to add to the team.”

HAMDAN’S SHADWELL TO DOWNSIZE BY DAVID YATES THE colours of the late Sheikh Hamdan Al Maktoum will be a less common sight on British racecourses with a “substantial number” of his horses bound for the sales. Since Mushref gave Sheikh Hamdan his first winner in 1980, his silks – royal blue, white epaulets, striped cap – have been associated with some of the sport’s great names, including 1989 Derby hero Nashwan and 1990 champion sprinter Dayjur. But speculation has been rife his Shadwell Estate Company Ltd – whose latest Group 1 in Europe came via the William Haggastrained Baaeed in the Prix du Moulin at ParisLongchamp 12 days ago – would undergo a downsizing after the sheikh’s death last March. And yesterday “important changes” were announced, including the sale this autumn of horses in training and home-bred yearlings, with a dispersal of Sheikh Hamdan’s band of broodmares to follow. While Shadwell stressed its commitment to “focus on quality and competition at the highest level”, UK director Chris Kennard said: “As part of a long-term plan for Shadwell to operate on a sustainable footing, a recent decision has been made to contract the size of the global business. This will involve the imminent sale of a substantial number of horses, including yearlings, horses in training and breeding stock and, in due course, a reorganisation of each of the worldwide operations.” ■ WILLIAM BUICK was cut to 2-1 (from 7-2) with Paddy Power for the 2021 jockeys’ title after a treble at Yarmouth yesterday. The Dublin firm eased reigning champion Oisín Murphy to 1-3.

Fined £5.36million and kicked out of the Premiership for multiple salary cap breaches, the Londoners were forced to win their place back at English rugby’s top table. Mark McCall’s squad did so without complaint and their reward is a date under the Bristol lights in this evening’s curtain raiser. A crowd of 20,000 is expected at Ashton Gate to see how Saracens 2.0 compare to the original, which won five Premiership titles and three European Cups. It will be particularly emotional for Ben Earl, back at Sarries after being on loan with Pat Lam’s Bears last season. And the England international hinted at what fans can expect by saying: “We’ve spoken about starting a new chapter at the club. If anything it’s better now. The culture’s stronger, the group feels tighter than ever. “That’s not to say there weren’t tough times, there were of course. But we’ve come through that and are massively energised to be back. “We’re excited about where this journey takes us. Absolutely buzzing. I’ve got that first day at school feeling. I’m like a kid in a sweetshop.” Earl won the European Challenge Cup and played in two Premiership semi-finals By alex Spink PAT LAM has demanded Bristol shrug off their play-off heartbreak and reach this season’s Premiership Final. Bears (right) kick off the new campaign against Saracens during his time with Bristol. But he insists he feels no divided loyalties. “I’ve nothing but good things to say about Bristol, the way they do things, the friends I made and the city itself,” he said. “I loved my time there. But that chapter for me is over and it’s all about repaying the faith and loyalty Sarries have shown in me.” In Saracens’ absence, Bristol finished last season in top spot but blew their title hopes by coughing up a 28-0 lead to Harlequins in their play-off semi-final. Sarries recovered from losing to Cornish Pirates to r e a c h t h e Championship final where they easily beat Ealing. They did so with a stronger team, on paper at least, than they field today as Lions quintet Owen Farrell, Maro Itoje, Elliot Daley, Jamie George and Mako Vunipola miss out. But Alex Lozowski, Nick Isiekwe and Earl are back from loan spells and the latter likes the atmosphere he has returned to. “We’ve such a good bond,” said Earl. “We can be honest with each other and push each other in ways maybe other teams can’t.’’ tonight, 90 days on from blowing a 28-0 semi-final lead to Harlequins.

The Moliwood pairing famously combined to win all four Paris matches together in 2018 as Europe romped to victory. And the enduring image of the long French weekend has been the video of Molinari and Fleetwood waking up together with the trophy after a drunken night of celebration. The Italian became the first European to win all five of his matches in 2018 but will be watching Whistling Straits from his LA home after failing to qualify this year. And the world No.167 said: “I wish I could be there but it is not going to be too weird for me. I wish the European team all the best and I hope to see Tommy and the rest of the lads celebrating at the end – however they do it. “Will I mind if he ends up in bed again? No!

54 DAILY MIRROR FRIDAY 17.09.2021 jOhn cross He’s got his ear to the ground and his finger on the pulse Ex-addict Shilts calls for ban on betting adverts PETER SHILTON is leading a campaign to crack down on gambling adverts in football, with a warning for former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho. The legendary England keeper, 71, had a 45-year gambling addiction and admits he lost millions. Now the Three Lions’ most-capped player – Shilton made 125 appearances – has written a book called ‘Saved: Overcoming A 45-Year Gambling Addiction’ with his wife Steph. And this week he presented a powerful letter to Prime Minister Boris Johnson calling for shirt sponsorship by betting companies to be outlawed. Former World Cup star Shilton (above) believes that Mourinho and former England striker Peter Crouch are adding to the gambling problem by fronting television adverts for Paddy Power bookmakers. Shilton, who has gone six years without a bet, said: “They are just encouraging people to gamble. One thing is for sure, neither Jose Mourinho nor Peter Crouch would have done those adverts if they knew someone who was an addict or a chronic gambler. “I wrote a book to try and help show other addicts that there is a way out but also to try and highlight the problem. I met Boris at the Euros in the summer and my hope is that he and his wife Carrie will read the letter and the book to see the impact it can have. “This is a big opportunity for the Government to make a difference. Players wearing shirts with gambling advertising normalise betting for young people. “Things like pop-up ads and free spins merely entice youngsters into a life of gambling. “Formula One survived without tobacco advertising. Cricket doesn’t have it. And we’re not asking for all ads to be stopped. “When I was playing, it was about horse racing. “Now football is the No.1 sport to bet on and there’s more and more children taking part.” DM1ST Burnley v ArsenAl things are gunner get better PREMIER LEAGUE tomorrow, ko 3pm Arteta can see ‘bright lights’ ahead as he looks to build on Norwich win BY JohN cross Chief Football Writer @johncrossmirror MIKEL ARTETA has told Arsenal fans he can see “bright lights” ahead. The Gunners boss says he is full of optimism, despite the club’s poor start, which has seen them manage just one win from their opening four games. They face another test at Burnley tomorrow, but Arteta believes they can build on their win over Norwich last weekend, which lifted them off the foot of the table. He said: “I can really see the light. I’m telling you, I’m very positive most of the time. “I have seen the light and I can see bright lights. There can be bumps in the road within that light, but I can see a lot of light. “We have to put a run together. We know how much we need the results and the performances will lead to that. “If we do what we have to do against Burnley, we’ll be much closer to achieving that. “We’ve had a good week to prepare for the game. We know what we are facing. The challenge is going to be big because it’s one of the toughest places to go in the Premier League. We are ready for it.” Arteta (above) recounted an experience from his playing days when he left Rangers to go to Spain to join Real Sociedad to be closer to his parents. And, even though it did not work out on a football level, he says it taught him an important lesson. “I didn’t play – I was on the bench and I always said that was the key moment in my career to have more success after,” he said. “But it was the right thing that I needed in that moment. At that moment, I couldn’t see it. “I was annoyed, upset and angry. I was really bad with myself and everyone, but today, looking back at it and reflecting on it, it was the perfect moment in the right time.” Arteta has praised the way Bernd Leno reacted after being axed in favour of Aaron Ramsdale last weekend, but also dismissed reports in Germany that Leno (left) would be brought back for bigger games such as the north London derby on Sunday week. Arteta added: “I don’t know where they are coming from, but they are ahead of me! “I think I am the one who picks the team at the weekend and sometimes I read things that I haven’t decided yet. “I haven’t made a decision for Saturday, so you can imagine the north London derby!” BT sPORT has gained a reputation for making superb football documentaries.

New CEO Dane Murphy wants a younger coach such as Cooper (above), 41, who guided Swansea into successive play-offs before leaving. dyche deal to tempt stars to stay BY DavID aNDersoN SEAN DyChE hopes his decision to sign a new four-year deal at Burnley will help persuade his players to commit their future to the Clarets. Dyche (left) yesterday signed on at Turf Moor until 2025 and now wants the club to tie down the 10 players who are out of contract next summer. Skipper Ben Mee, James Tarkowski, Ashley Barnes and Jack Cork are among those who could leave on Bosmans. “I think it’s helpful that I’ve re-signed because it gives clarity to the players, to their agents and the club,” he said. “The club will speak to their representatives and see what can be done.” Dyche, 50, said he is happy to commit his future to Burnley because he feels owner Alan Pace and his board share his vision. Pace sanctioned nearly £30million worth of transfers in the summer and Dyche believes the American will keep backing him financially. “I think you commit to a cause because you think it’s right and appropriate,” he said. eNGLaND rIse to WorLD top three BY JohN cross eNGLAND have been named the third best team in the world, their joint highest place since FiFA rankings began.

Morris (above) is in talks to finalise sanctions which would see the Rams docked nine points, with a further three suspended, over financial fair play and how they valued players. The agreement would leave Wayne Rooney’s side bottom of the table on -2 points but avoid the time and cost of a future formal hearing.

DM1ST mirror.co.uk/sport FRIDAY 17.09.2021 DAILY MIRROR 55 Prickly issue of Rose’s cut EUROPEAN Ryder Cup captains, if we ignore the debacle that was Nick Faldo’s effort at Valhalla in 2008, do not tend to get many things wrong. But Padraig Harrington’s decision to ignore the claims of Justin Rose (above, left), a former world No.1, for next week’s contest could come back to haunt him. The initial problem was that while USA captain Steve Stricker had six wildcard selections, Harrington (above, right) was limited to three. And in the end, essentially, it came down to a choice of three from four. Rose, Sergio Garcia, Ian Poulter and Shane Lowry. Rose has form at Whistling Straits, having finished fourth at the US PGA Championship in 2015, his Ryder Cup record – in terms of points per appearances – is better than that of Poulter, who missed the cut at the Wisconsin course six years ago. On a brute of a track, Poulter will probably be the shortest hitter out there. Everyone knows the Ryder Cup can inspire Poulter, who revels in his Postman nickname. Helping Europe retain the trophy in America would be his most impressive delivery yet. TELEVISION viewing figures are in from America. An average of 2.05 million viewers watched the US Open final between Daniil Medvedev and Novak Djokovic. An average of 2.44 million viewers watched the US Open final between Emma Raducanu and Leylah Fernandez. If there are any dinosaurs out there who still believe women tennis players do not deserve the same prize money as the men, your argument is dead in the Hudson River. ANDY DUNN Britain’s best Sports Writer Salah’s a world-class talent deserving of a world-class contract Simone snipers are so off target THROUGH tears, giving evidence to the Senate, Simone Biles once again relived the horror of how Larry Nassar sexually abused her. One statement was particularly stark. “USA Gymnastics and the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee knew that I was abused by their official team doctor long before I was ever made aware more mo money Salah’s brilliance deserves a bumper new contract at Liverpool of their knowledge.” In other words, Biles (right) says she was betrayed by the people who were supposed to protect her. The physical and emotional agony she must have suffered is unimaginable... as is the idea that some thought she let her team-mates down when the psychological trauma stopped her playing a full part at the Tokyo Olympics. AFTER Liverpool’s win at Elland Road last Sunday, Jurgen Klopp gave a telling insight into the mindset of Mohamed Salah. “What a player,” declared Klopp (right). “And he’s still hungry. I saw him in the dressing room and we were all in the situation concerning Harvey Elliott, but he was still not happy for not scoring one or two other goals.” Shame about Harvey, isn’t it, Mo? Yeah, but I can’t believe I didn’t get a hat-trick. Obviously, it was not like that. Salah would have been as concerned as all of his team-mates about Elliott’s wellbeing. It would have been his first thought. But the perfectionist in a truly elite player is never far from the surface. The selfishness of a truly great goalscorer is a badge of honour, not a black mark. Salah is a truly elite player and a truly great goalscorer. Salah is a perfectionist and is selfish. For someone who has won a whole slew of individual honours, it seems a strange thing to say, but Salah still seems to be slightly underappreciated. Off the cuff, name your top halfdozen players in the world. I might be wrong, but I bet there are a good few out there who would not have Salah in that bracket. Well, he IS in that bracket and will want to be paid accordingly under the terms of any new contract. When you look around at the money earned by Kevin De Bruyne, Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe, Cristiano Ronaldo, Romelu Lukaku and Neymar, a ballpark figure would be around £400,000 a week. Liverpool and Fenway Sports Group would do well to stretch to that sort of money, but you could not blame Salah for asking. He turns 30 next June, but, considering his fitness record, Salah should have another seven productive years, at least. But surely his options would be limited if he decided to look for money elsewhere? Yes, but if Mbappe does go to Real Madrid next summer, there is at least one club that could pay Salah the big, big numbers. And he is so good that Salah for Mbappe would be no downgrade. With his brilliance undimmed, his statistics telling a startling story and that crucial two-year countdown to the end of his current deal already well under way, Salah holds plenty of cards when it comes to negotiations. Recently, Liverpool have been proficient in extending contracts. After Georginio Wijnaldum walked away for nothing, the club has secured fresh, long-term commitments from Andy Robertson, Virgil van Dijk, Alisson, Fabinho and Trent Alexander-Arnold. Good work, but Salah might be harder work. For a moment, consider some of those statistics. His goal at Elland Road was his 100th in 162 Premier L e a g u e appearances. Across all competitions for Liverpool, he has scored 129 in 208 outings. Yes, he takes the penalties – and Wednesday’s miss against Milan was his first in 18 attempts – but it still remains a fantastic record. It is the sort of scoring contribution that demands special acclaim and, like it or not, it is the type of scoring contribution that demands special remuneration. So, if there is some sort of wage structure at Anfield and they have to break it to keep Salah at Anfield for good, then that is what they should do. He is that special. Unholy spectacle shames boxing ANYONE who watched a video of 58-year-old Evander Holyfield shadow-boxing ahead of his ‘fight’ with Brazil’s former UFC fighter Vitor Belfort knew what was coming. If judges had been marking Holyfield’s shadow-boxing session, the shadow would have won by a unanimous decision. And sure enough, with Donald Trump commentating on a truly awful spectacle, Holyfield, at the first sign of something resembling a Belfort punch, went down like Salah is a truly elite player & a truly great goalscorer an old drunk at closing time. The really grim element is that freak shows are now becoming a staple part of the global boxing diet. Anthony Joshua’s collision with the brilliant Oleksandr Usyk on Saturday week can’t come quickly enough.

The veteran boss admits his job is to keep the club “ticking along in the Premier League” - the kind of low-key ambition that infuriates Geordies. Toon host Leeds tonight, with both clubs looking for their first win of the campaign. Newcastle are second bottom and a section of fans have made known their discontent. Bruce said: “It’s always difficult. I’d be sick if I say I enjoyed it. The frustration is if you don’t get results, the manager, head coach, whatever I am, bear the brunt. That’s what it is. I have to accept the results haven’t been good enough. “My family thinks I’m a bit sick. I don’t think about those things. It’s a challenge at the minute. “I said when I came here two years ago I won’t be everyone’s cup of tea. But with my experience I hope I can keep the club ticking along, that the club stays where it is, that we maintain our Premier League status. “I know for a lot of people that’s the frustration. We should be better than that. That is where we are at the m o m e n t , and have been for a while. I want Newcastle at the top of the league. “All Newcastle fans want to see their team competing at the top of the table like they did 20 years ago. Unfortunately at the moment we are not there. My job is to keep us on an even keel.” Toon legend Alan Shearer described the club as “hollow, empty”. Asked if he would go if the atmosphere had a negative impact on the team, Bruce added: “Then you look at yourself. I don’t think, ‘The noise is too bad, I’ll walk away’. It’s not in my nature when you are in a battle ahead. Walk away? That doesn’t register with me. “I’ll keep doing my best. I’ll never walk away from the challenge. “Alan is entitled to his opinion. He gets paid for that and it is his job.” WE’LL PASS TEST By DAviD AnDErSon MARCELO BIELSA will not change Leeds’ passing game in a bid to end their winless start to the league campaign.

Nuno’s team were lucky to get away with a point against a team who languish in 11th spot in French Ligue 1. Yet they had been given a perfect start when Loic Bade turned a Lucas Moura cross into his own net in the 11th minute. Oops! What a pity he didn’t do it again. Nuno had told his team that nights of Champions League heroics were in Tottenham’s past – on this evidence they aren’t in Tottenham’s future. The Europa Conference League below a club of their size? Not with performances like this, it isn’t. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s late strike saved the day in their opening Group G contest in a game that went dangerously astray after Bade’s early own goal. Nuno, who saw his team’s good start to the season come to a shuddering halt with defeat at Crystal Palace at the weekend, had warned his players not to take this competition lightly. But the warning clearly was not heeded. The Portuguese admitted: “It was not perfect. We scored but then we lost control. Rennes are a good team and they caused us problems. “We showed character and belief to change the result after we conceded. This will make us stronger for the future.” Nuno selected a strong side but injuries to Steven Bergwijn painful,” added Nuno. Heungmin Son is facing a race against time to recover from a calf injury and Giovani Lo Celso does not get back from his quarantine camp in Croatia until Saturday, leaving Nuno facing big problems. Spurs got off to exactly the start they would have wanted thanks to a large slice of luck. Moura fired in a low cross after good work by Tanguy Ndombele and Harry Kane and the ball took a deflection off Bade to fly into the net. But the French side were not on their heels for long and Benjamin Bourigeaud saw his angled shot well stopped by Pierluigi Gollini. Spurs were struggling to contain Rennes and, after Flavien Tait played a neat giveand Moura will worry him ahead of Sunday’s clash with title-chasing Chelsea. “It feels ratings RENNES TOTTENHAM salin ........................ 7 traore ..................... 7 aguerd .................... 7 Bade .......................6 truffert ................... 7 Bourigeaud ............ 7 santamaria............. 7 tait ......................... 7 sulemana ...............8 guirassy ................. 7 laborde .................. 7 SUBS meling (truffert 79), ugochukwu (sulemana 79), martin Booked (santamaria 86), tel (guirassy 90) motm: By TonY banKs gollini .....................6 Doherty ..................6 tanganga ................6 rodon .....................6 Davies.....................6 ndombele ............... 7 skipp ......................6 gil Booked ..............6 moura ..................... 7 Kane .......................6 Bergwijn .................6 SUBS Hojbjerg (Bergwijn 30) 7, scarlett (moura 54) 6, emerson (Kane 54) 6, alli (ndombele 79) ReFeRee: Halis ozkahya KAmALDeen SuLemAnA 2-2 Hojbjerg is sharp to fire home from close range and earn a share of the spoils and-go with the troublesome Serhou Guirassy, he was able to guide his drive expertly into the far corner of Gollini’s net. Nuno’s team were lucky not to fall behind at a raucous Roazhon Park just before halftime when Kamaldeen Sulemana put his diving header wide from only six yards out. Substitute Hojbjerg wasted a good chance to put Spurs ahead, but it was Rennes who looked the more dangerous. And when Sulemana’s shot was palmed out by Gollini, Gaetan Laborde stabbed home. An embarrassing defeat looked on the cards but, when Matt Doherty’s cross was deflected into his path just five minutes later, Hojbjerg coolly slid the ball home.

Michail Antonio made history by scoring his side’s first goal in a major European competition – excluding qualifiers – for 22 years. And Declan Rice capped an inspirational captain’s performance with a brilliant solo goal to give the Hammers a dream start to their Europa League adventure. Their namesakes may be best known for presenting Britain’s Got Talent, but it was West Ham’s dynamic duo proving there’s plenty at London Stadium, too. Antonio was called “stupid” by boss David Moyes for getting sent off in his side’s goalless draw with Southampton at the weekend. But he bounced back in the best way possible to score his fifth goal in as many games this season. And Rice made sure it was a perfect start to West Ham’s first-ever Europa League group stage campaign with a second-half strike. Moyes could not have asked for more – and it was all the more impressive because Dinamo Zagreb are no mugs. West Ham knew what they were up against. Spurs came a cropper here last season, crashing out of this competition after losing 3-0. Part of the Stadion Maksimir has been shut since then after an earthquake ripped through Zagreb. But it was rocking for a different reason when Antonio sent West Ham’s 2,000 travelling fans crazy by breaking the deadlock in the 21st minute. Kevin Theophile-Catherine played a suicidal backpass that the Irons striker picked off before dancing around keeper Dominik Livakovic for a simple finish. The visitors played with the swagger of a side used to winning and Livakovic quickly had to save a Ryan Fredericks shot with his legs. Six Hammers fans had been arrested after a bar brawl the night before the game, but it was Dinamo who were safely locked away last night – in their own half. And West Ham underlined their dominance five minutes after the break when Rice picked off another bad ball and stormed forward to fire home between Livakovic’s legs. The England midfielder then wound up the locals by celebrating right in front of their Ultras. And that finally seemed to wake Dinamo up. Luka Ivanusec promptly had a shot blocked and then whipped another just wide. But West Ham’s new-look back four – with new signing Kurt Zouma starting alongside Issa Diop at centre-back – held them at bay. And, with Manchester United to come this weekend, Moyes even had the luxury of bringing off some of his big guns for a rest before the match was over. West Ham’s key men are performing, their new faces are gelling and their confidence is high. Last season was no fluke. This one could be even better.

The midfielder, who is out of contract at Manchester United next summer, rebooted his career on loan at West Ham last season. but despite being welcomed back to Old Trafford this summer, Lingard, 28, and his advisors have refused to sign a new offer. Lingard (above) joined United as a 15-year-old in 2008, and boss Solskjaer said: “He’s got one year left on his contract and the club is talking to him and his dad. We see him as a Man United player in the future,. “Jesse has showed his qualities and got back into the England squad.” Lingard, bagged a double for England against Andorra, and nine goals in 16 games for the Hammers – compared to nine in 66 for United. yet, despite his back pass howler which gifted young boys victory in Tuesday’s Champions League Group F opener, Solskjaer has not lost faith in the player. He added: “We really want to see the best of him this season. He’s a red through and through.” Solskjaer also revealed tomorrow’s visit of West Ham will come too soon for striker Edinson Cavani who has been sidelined with a slight strain.

DM1ST mirror.co.uk FRIDAY 17.09.2021 DAILY MIRROR 1 RsPB guide to birds in your area Content taken from 8-PAGE sPECIAl Plus: Top tips from the experts on bird care

2 House spaRRoW DM1ST Blue tit Although not as common as it once was, the humble house sparrow still visits many gardens, and often forms noisy colonies. It likes to nest in ivy on walls, as well as in crevices in buildings and nest boxes. You can tell the male by his large black bib, while females are paler and plainer. House sparrows feed on the ground but also use feeders, and love a good communal bird- bath. This colourful, acrobatic little bird is often the first to discover a new birdfeeder. It is also the most likely species to use a nest-box in your garden – if you are lucky it will then bring its brood of grey-and-yellow chicks to the feeders. It is best identified by its blue cap, white cheeks and eyebrows, and bright yellow belly. By Karen Rockett Woodpigeon Garden Birds With its short legs and waddling walk, the woodpigeon is a somewhat comical figure. It is bigger than feral or ‘street’ pigeons, with distinctive white markings on its neck-sides and wing edges, as well as a yellowish bill and white eyes, and a beautiful rosy-pink chest. Woodpigeons feed on the ground but also take buds from trees, and can be heard singing their five-note crooning coo from the trees. gReat tit This bird is larger than the blue tit, and is just as colourful but has a black head with white cheek patches, as well as a black stripe down its chest and belly. It has a cheerful, ringing song and is familiar at feeders. Like blue tits, great tits will use nestboxes in the garden. They usually have one brood of chicks, which look like slightly muted versions of their parents. Lockdown has brought many of us closer to nature and the last year has seen a huge upsurge in the number of people birdwatching. Memberships of local birdwatching groups have soared and a recent poll commissioned by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) found over half of UK adults saying the pandemic has made them more aware of nature in their local area. Your own back garden is a wonderful place to start out as a birdwatcher. Even small urban gardens will attract several kinds of birds, and the nation’s gardens as a whole form a large and important area of habitat for wildlife. Here’s a look at the ‘top ten’ garden bird species recorded in the RSPB’s 2021 ‘Big Garden Birdwatch’ survey. goldfincH A flock of goldfinches is known as a ‘charm’, which is very apt for this pretty bird. It has a distinctive red face and black and yellow wings, and is otherwise black and white on its head and tail, and light brown on its body. Juveniles are plain brown but have the black and yellow wings and black tail. Goldfinches love sunflower seeds and usually visit feeders in flocks.

mirror.co.uk Starling Like the house sparrow, this species has declined in recent years. It is also often seen in flocks, and is notoriously hungry, but it will also reduce the leatherjackets in your lawn. Adults have glossy black plumage (spotted with white in winter) while juveniles are plain light brown. It has a strutting walk, and singing males imitate other birds, as well as making many other strange noises. Magpie One of the most eye-catching British birds, the magpie is an inquisitive blackand-white crow with a very long tail, which reflects beautiful rainbow colours when the light hits it. You will often hear it before you see it, as it has a distinctive harsh chattering voice. Magpies are clever and inventive, and can be great fun to watch, especially newly fledged juveniles which are highly curious and active. robin DM1ST blackbird This plump, dark and long-tailed thrush is most often seen hopping across the lawn; males also sing their beautiful, fluty territorial song from rooftops and other high places. It will nest in dense hedges or bushes, and loves to feed on windfall fruit. Only adult males are black (with yellow bills and eye-rings); females and juveniles are mottled dark brown. Officially Britain’s favourite bird, the robin is unmistakeable with its orange-red face and breast, and fearless habits. If you are digging in the garden, your local robin is probably nearby, hoping you will dig up a worm or two. Robins often nest in strange places, including inside plant pots in sheds if they can get in. Look out for the golden-brown, spotted juveniles from mid-spring to autumn. long-tailed tit This is a tiny, round bird with a very long tail, leading to its nickname of ‘lollipop’. Its colours of black, white and dusky pink are unlike any other garden bird. It is usually seen in family groups, which keep in contact as they move through the bushes with a constant ‘conversation’ of purring call notes. Juveniles have blackish face masks, and less pink plumage than adults. How to attract birds to your garden 3 TIPs FroM rsPB exPerT ADrIAn ThoMAs Food and water Putting out birdfood will help birds in your garden. Finches, tits and sparrows enjoy seeds and nuts, especially sunflower seeds, while thrushes will go for windfall apples, and many species enjoy fat-balls and suet-based foods. Always buy good quality birdfood. Make sure feeders and bird tables are placed somewhere safe from cats, not right next to dense bushes but close enough that the birds can easily retreat there. It is really important to keep feeding areas clean. Make sure you can see the feeders from indoors to get the most pleasure from them! Birds like a drink and a bathe, too. A birdbath is ideal, but an upturned dustbin lid that is watertight will work well. Basically, it needs to be wide and shallow. Keep it clean, and top it up daily in hot weather. During frosty weather, pour warm water onto any ice that forms. Again, siting is crucial, as birds are very vulnerable when bathing. the complete home There are many other things you can do in the garden to give birds their ideal home. ■ Plant as many shrubs, trees, climbers and flowers as you can, and try to keep hard landscaping to a minimum. A fruit tree is ideal, as is any shrub that bears berries, and leave seedheads standing in flowerbeds overwinter. Lawns are great for birds, whether kept long or mown short. ■ Cut down on chemicals, especially pesticides. And add a log pile to encourage more insects, which provide food for most of our garden birds. ■ Put up a range of birdboxes – those with holes for tits and sparrows should always be placed facing between north and east; open-fronted boxes for robins should be hidden behind dense climbers. ‘Nature on your Doorstep’ is a fantastic free RSPB resource for helping you attract birds and wildlife to your garden.

4 Mallard DM1ST tufted ducK Coast, Wetlands & River Kingfisher Oystercatcher Of the many duck species you may see, this is the most familiar. Mallard males have shiny green heads, white neck-collars and chestnut-brown chests, while the females are mottled brown and produce the familiar loud quacking call. You can see mallards on most town park lakes, but they are also widespread in wilder wetlands, where they rub shoulders with scarcer species like wigeons and teals. One of the most distinctive shorebirds, the oystercatcher is black-and-white with an eye-catching orange ‘carrot’ of a bill. It is most often seen on mud-flats near estuaries, but you might also see it on shingle and rocky shores, and in Scotland in particular it often breeds inland, on grassy fields and riversides. It has a distinctive, urgentsounding piping call. The thrill of a kingfisher sighting is your reward for walking slowly and quietly along a river-side. This dazzling jewel of a bird has iridescent blue upperparts and an orange belly, and catches its fish prey by diving head-first into the water. It nests in a tunnel that it digs into a bank side and may have three broods a year. The best time of year to see it is late summer, when young birds are wandering in search of their own territories. This is a diving duck which often visits lakes in towns, as well as reservoirs and estuaries. Males are black-and-white while females are dark chocolate brown – both sport a droopy crest at the backs of their heads. Tufted ducks are expert divers – in clear water you can see them swimming underwater with powerful kicks of their large webbed feet. The British Isles is blessed with a coastline of almost 20,000 miles making it very important worldwide for coastal wildlife. We are lucky to have some of the world’s largest colonies of nesting seabirds in summer, as well as great gatherings of shorebirds in winter. Our rivers, lakes and marshes are also home to a wonderful diversity of birdlife. The wetlands of Norfolk, Suffolk and Somerset for example provide some of the most ideal habitats for birds in the world. But birdwatching in wetland and coastal areas can be tricky, as the birds can be quite distant and the terrain is quite exposed. fulMar Look out for fulmars wheeling around tall cliff-faces in spring and summer. This bird looks a bit like a gull with its grey and white plumage, but is a closer cousin to the albatrosses, sharing with them a distinctive stiff-winged flight and a very keen sense of smell, enabling it to sniff out food such as floating carrion over many miles as it wanders far out at sea. Invest in a decent pair of binoculars, and visit RSPB reserves with purpose-built hides that enable you to enjoy closer views without disturbance. A visit to the Farne Islands, which lie just off the north Northumberland shore or RSPB Bempton Cliffs on the Yorkshire coast. Overlooking the North Sea, it is home to one of the UK’s top wildlife spectacles, the best mainland sea colony with visitor facilities and six safe cliff-edge viewing platforms giving stunning close-up views of life on the edge.

mirror.co.uk Great Crested Grebe Grey Heron 5 its elegant slim outline and ed, frilled head, this diving fish- is one of our most attractive and ctive swimming birds. It lives on r lakes, though you may also see it e sea in winter. Pairs perform a lex, synchronised courtship e’ in spring, and later in the year ay see them carrying their ug-striped chicks on their backs. Often seen waiting, still and patient, at the water’s edge, the grey heron is a tall grey bird with a crested head and long, daggerlike bill. It is a skilled fish-catcher that can be seen around rivers, lakes and ponds of all kinds. When it takes flight, it looks prehistoric with its huge broad wings, gangling legs, and folded-in neck. It nests in colonies called ‘heronries’, building huge stick nests. HerrinG Gull This clever and resourceful bird with its evocative mewing and cackling voice is the most familiar ‘sea-gull’ in Britain. It has a silver-grey back and wings, with black wing-tips, and candy-pink legs; juveniles are mottled brown, and attain adult plumage gradually over four years. It is declining severely on rural coasts but does better in towns, making a living by clearing up what humans leave behind, on the streets and beaches. The Bird watchers’ Code Some three million adults go birdwatching every year in the UK. The Birdwatchers’ Code puts the interests of birds first and applies not just when you are at a nature reserve, but whenever you are watching birds in the UK or abroad. Guillemot If you think you have seen a penguin in the wild in the UK, chances are it was a guillemot. This dark brown-andwhite bird has a penguin- like shape and is as skilful a swimmer and diver as any penguin, but it can fly, and belongs to the family known as auks (along with the puffin and the razorbill). Guillemots nest in large colonies on cliffs on mainly northern and western coasts. Gannet This is the biggest British seabird. It is cigar-shaped with long, narrow wings. The adult it is mostly white, with black wing-tips and a yellowish head. Young birds are dark brown, and become whiter with each annual moult. Gannets feed by plunge-diving spectacularly, from a considerable height, then catching fish underwater. Most of its colonies are on islands – they include Bass Rock, off eastern Scotland, and Grassholm, off Pembrokeshire. Top tips Avoid disturbing birds and their 1 habitats – the birds’ interests should always come first. If a bird flies away or makes repeated alarm calls, you’re too close. And if it leaves, you won’t get a good view. 2 Be an ambassador for birdwatching. Respond positively to questions from interested passers-by. They may not be birdwatchers yet, but a helpful answer may spark an interest in birds, wildlife and its conservation. 3 Know the law. Intentional or reckless disturbance of some species at or near the nest is illegal in Britain. Don’t trespass on private land. Legislation provides access for walkers to open country in Britain, and includes measures to protect wildlife but the rules and codes are different in England, Scotland and Wales, so make sure you know what you can do. 4 Repeatedly playing a recording of birdsong or calls to encourage a bird to respond can divert them from feeding their young. Never use playback to attract a species during its breeding season. 5 Send your sightings to the County Bird Recorder and the Birdtrack website (www.bto.org/ our-science/projects/birdtrack) To read the full Birdwatchers’ Code, go to www.rspb.org.uk.

6 Common Buzzard DM1ST keStrel Farmland, Park & Woodland This is the most frequently seen large bird of prey in the UK. Often several may be seen together, circling high overhead with their shortish tails fanned out. Most common buzzards are mid-brown, but some are much darker and others paler. In some areas you may see them alongside red kites, which are more rufous with long, forked tails. Skylark Its sweet, twittering, ceaseless ramble of a song is a characteristic sound of summer in meadows and on moorland, but seeing a skylark is more challenging than hearing one. The male rises from near his nest on the ground and flies straight up, extremely high, singing all the while. You might see him as a small dot against the blue sky. Look out for perched skylarks on fence posts; their pointed crests help tell them apart from other smallish brown birds. Great Spotted WoodpeCker Of the three woodpeckers that breed in Britain, the great spotted is the one seen most often, especially in woodlands. Starling-sized, with boldly marked blackand-white plumage, it gives itself away with its loud, sharp ‘kick’ call, and its territorial ‘drum-rolls’ on tree trunks in spring. It is also a fairly frequent visitor to gardens. If you see a bird hovering very still for a long spell, with fastbeating wings and a long, fanned-out tail, that is almost certainly a kestrel. This small falcon hunts mice and voles in grassland, using its hovering skill to hold position while it pinpoints where its prey is, before dropping down in a high-speed pounce. Females are chestnut, mottled black, while males have grey heads and tails. Because of Britain’s geographic position, climate and soil, much of our countryside would naturally be heavily wooded. However woodland cover has diminished greatly over the centuries, but we are now reversing this trend and creating new woodlands, to the benefit of some of our woodland birds. Farmland, although managed primarily to produce food rather than to benefit wildlife, can also be a wonderful wildlife habitat and is home to many special and much loved British birds. GoldCreSt Britain’s smallest bird, the goldcrest prefers coniferous woodland to deciduous. Its tiny size and needle-like bill enable it to pick miniscule insects from in between conifer needles – this food source is enough to allow it to overwinter in Britain, unlike most insect-eating birds which migrate to warmer areas. Olive green with a yellow, black-edged crown, the goldcrest is extremely lively and active, and can be quite fearless.

mirror.co.uk BarN owl DM1ST Swallow 7 This beautiful owl is easily recognised, with its mostly white underparts and its effortless, wafting, low-level flight on long wings. It is primarily nocturnal but may be seen hunting in late afternoon and evening, especially in summer when it has a nest full of chicks to feed. Many barn owls in Britain nest in derelict farm buildings, but they will also use large nestboxes. Nuthatch Not all tree-climbing birds are woodpeckers, and the nuthatch is arguably a better tree-climber than any woodpecker, being able to run head-first down a trunk as well as up on its strong legs with grapplinghook claws. It has light grey plumage blue- with a pale orange belly and a long black eye-stripe, and uses its long, strong bill to crack open hard nuts and seeds. tawNy owl The largest and most abundant of British owls, the tawny owl is nonetheless difficult to see, as it is strictly nocturnal and lives in wooded habitats, where it is well-camouflaged when roosting by day. You may hear its wavering hoot at night anywhere where there are some mature trees, especially through winter when territories are being established. It is intricately mottled brown all over, with a large round head and dark eyes. Jay This gorgeously colourful woodland bird is a member of the crow family, and is reluctant to show off its beautiful pink, blue and black-and-white plumage, being shy and timid. You are most likely to see jays in autumn, when they gather acorns in large quantities to bury for later consumption. Of course, some acorns are never retrieved, so jays are also responsible for planting many oak trees. The first swallows arrive back from Africa at the end of March, and by early May many farm buildings will have nesting pairs in situ. This migratory bird has a delightful chuckling song, and is striking in appearance with its dark metallic-blue upperside, creamy belly, red throat and very long, forked tail. Swallows often hunt insects in cattle fields, almost skimming the grass as they catch their prey in flight. Top tips for spotting birds hidden in nature Be quiet! Don’t make any 1 sudden movements. Birds are easily startled by loud noises and will flee to cover. It is almost impossible to sneak up on a bird, because birds hear much better than human beings do. 2 Avoid brightly coloured clothes. Many birds have poor colour vision, but bright clothes, like whites, will contrast with the surrounding environment and enhance the appearance of movement. In woodlands, walk 3 slowly, pause often to scan the treetops with binoculars, and let birds come to you. 4 Use your ears as much as your eyes – learn the songs and calls of the commoner species and then a new voice in the chorus will stand out more. Be patient. Birdwatching is often 5 about waiting for the birds to show themselves. There are more than 6600 different types of birds have been seen in the UK so buy a pocket book of birds to help you identify them.

8 cucKoo soNG THrusH Death of the dawn chorus IF you are an early riser you will be familiar with the dawn chorus. And if you’re a late riser, no doubt you think the birds sound too loud! However 50 years ago it was much louder and in that time we’ve lost 40 million birds, according to the RSPB. The UK’s birds can be split into three categories of conservation importance – red, amber and green. The UK Red List keeps track of how different species are doing and those on the red list (67 species) are in need of urgent help. The Red list criteria includes globally threatened species and UK species who are in severe decline (at least 50%) in breeding population over last 25 years. One in four birds are on that list and many of the UK’s iconic crooners are among them like nightingales, skylarks and cuckoos hence the death of the dawn chorus. Common garden birds like starlings, song thrushes and house sparrows are also on the list. Amber is the next most critical group and includes species in moderate decline (25 to 50 percent) with fewer than 3000 breeding pairs in the UK. Species on the green list are the least critical group that occur regularly in the UK. PIEd FLycATcHEr L NIGHTINGALE Red list COUnTIng BIRdS dr Mark Eaton, one of the RSPB’s Principal Conservation Scientists, is responsible for collecting the data on bird conservation and numbers. Mark and his team analyse hundreds of statistics from monitoring schemes such as the Breeding Bird Survey and the Wetland Bird Survey. Mark explains: “Thanks to thousands of volunteers – counting birds, doing surveys, getting their data to organisations such as the RSPB, BTO and WWT – birds are probably amongst the best monitored groups of wildlife on the planet, and especially so in the UK. “We produce lots of stats which enable us to assess whether each species should go onto one of our lists of conservation concern. “Either amber for moderate concern or red which are the ones we are really worried about. “To be on the red list you need to be a bird of highest conservation concern, meaning you’re in a pretty bad way. “You’ve declined very rapidly, you’re at risk of extinction globally, or you are historically depleted, meaning you are at much lower population levels that you were in the past.” * To see what you can do to help or make a donation visit www.rspb.org. uk/join-and-donate/donate/ appeals/red-alert/ WILLoW TIT
