4 The Chronicle SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2021 chroniclelive.co.uk News Metro faces cuts in months unless money is found By DANIEL HOLLAND Local Democracy Reporter Deep cuts to the North east’s public transport services could be on the way in just six months’ time unless cash is found to plug a £19m black hole. Tyne and Wear Metro operator Nexus is predicting a severe budget deficit next year, with the end of bailout funding that has covered the network’s losses since the Covid pandemic hit. The Government’s insistence that a final £13m emergency support package which runs out in April will be the last help it provides has set alarm bells ringing once more over the perilous state of the Metro’s finances. Latest forecasts for 2022/23 estimate that the Metro faces a £16m shortfall, while there is a further £3.2m deficit relating to other Nexus services such as the Shields Ferry and ‘secured’ bus services it pays private operators to run. There are serious fears that major cuts will need to be made shortly unless ministers can be convinced to extend the Metro’s Covid bailout funding, which has already topped £50m, and local councils cannot find extra money within their own depleted coffers to plug the gap. But a report to the North east Joint Transport Committee (JTC) also warns that if Metro services were slashed it would risk plunging the network into a “spiral of decline” by further reducing ticket revenue, which has already taken a massive hit over the last 18 months with the Covid pandemic causing a major drop in passenger numbers. JTC chair and Gateshead Council leader Martin Gannon said: “Metro is facing a financial black hole of up to £16m next year caused purely by Covid- 19, and we desperately need the Government to extend its very welcome support into the next financial year.” Nexus says that cutting back train numbers so substantially that only three in either direction stopped at stations every hour would save just £3.7m in running costs and that “is not considered possible for Metro to save its way out of the situation”. Its director of finance, John Fenwick, reported that passenger numbers have now recovered to 75% of pre-Covid levels and that Metro has recovered faster than any other light rail network in the country. But he added that “the recovery is going to be gradual and further financial support will still be needed next year” for the Metro, which has a longawaited £360m fleet of new trains under construction in Switzerland. even before Covid arrived, however, there were fears about Nexus’ money saturday £30,000 for every ticket in this winning postcode M22 0DE Wythenshawe A very busy Asda fuel station near the Metro problems. Warnings in 2019 about the publicly-owned body’s finances prompted concerns over the future of bus services in areas not covered by commercial operators, the ferry, and some concession fares such as the Metro under-16 pop card. Nexus has also warned that, while it could dip into its reserves to cover the shortfall, relying solely on that option would use up every penny of them in 2022/23 alone – and there would still be a further £19.8m budget deficit the following year. Newcastle Lib Dem councillor Greg Stone said he was “gravely concerned that Metro service cuts in 2022/23 and beyond are now a very real possibility”. He added: “It’s been clear that there have been underlying problems in Nexus’s budget dating back before the pandemic, and I am very anxious about what happens when Government crisis bailouts end next spring.” North of Tyne mayor Jamie Driscoll said: “Covid is still a dangerous disease. It’s still causing people to get sick and thousands of people to self-isolate. “While that remains the case, the Government must continue its financial support for the Metro.” The Department for Transport said it was “working with Nexus to understand the needs of the Tyne and Wear Metro and plans for longer term recovery”.

facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2021 The Chronicle 5 Ella’s death still being investigated a year on How youngster Ella Henderson came to be killed by a falling tree at a Newcastle school is still being investigated one year on from the tragedy. The six-year-old died a day after the incident at Gosforth Park First School, in Gosforth, on September 25 last year. An investigation into her death was being led by Northumbria Police. However, the probe has now been passed on to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). A Northumbria Police spokesman said: “Northumbria Police will continue to work closely with the Health & Safety Executive, who are now leading the investigation” An HSE spokesman said: “This was a tragic incident and the anniversary will be a difficult time for Ella’s family and friends. “HSE are now leading the investigation and we are committed to doing everything we can to fully explore the circumstances surrounding her death.” Ella Henderson Centre in Gateshead ‘Find drivers or endure disruption’ By AUGUST GRAHAM Reporter RetaileRs have warned the Government that it has just 10 days to save Christmas from “significant disruption” due to the HGV driver shortage. the British Retail Consortium (BRC) has warned that disruption to festive preparations will be “inevitable” if progress is not made to solve the shortfall of around 90,000 lorry drivers. the stark warning came as BP, esso and tesco petrol forecourts were affected by difficulties in receiving petrol deliveries. BP said that around 20 of its 1,200 petrol forecourts were closed due to a lack of available fuel, with between 50 and 100 sites affected by the loss of at least one grade of fuel. a “small number” of tesco refilling stations had also been hit, said esso owner exxonMobil, which runs the sites. the transport secretary has tried to dissuade drivers from panic-buying petrol. However, yesterday morning queues started to form outside some filling stations in the UK. senior ministers met yesterday to discuss possible solutions to the shortage of HGV drivers. However, no new answers emerged after the meeting. andrew Opie, director of food and sustainability at the BRC, said: “HGV drivers are the glue which hold our supply chains together. “Unless a solution can be found in the next 10 days, it is inevitable that we will see significant disruption in the run-up to Christmas.” Mr shapps promised he would do what is needed to ensure that petrol gets to drivers. “i’ll move heaven and earth to do anything that’s required to make sure that lorries carry on moving our goods and services and petrol around the country,” he said.

facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2021 The Chronicle 7 News Tweaks made to scene of weekend of road gridlock Gateshead town centre saw snarl-ups the council said were unprecedented By HERBERT SODEN Reporter herbert.soden@trinitymirror.com @HerbertSoden88 Changes are being made to central gateshead’s road layout in a bid to ensure last weekend’s traffic chaos doesn’t happen again. an investigation was launched after gateshead Council admitted that congestion was “on a scale not seen previously”. On Monday, sheena Ramsey, chief executive at gateshead Council, said that congestion seen on Friday and saturday had been “significantly worse than usual”, and that the council was investigating how it arose as “a matter of urgency”. Drivers reported mayhem in central gateshead, with a heworth woman saying her shopping was ruined after being stuck in Tesco car park for two hours on Friday. The authority said that newcastle was also hit by heavy traffic and that large crowds attending major cultural and sporting events by car, as well as families bringing students to the area, contributed to that congestion. however, it admitted that congestion is causing problems especially around the nelson street and Lambton street area, and began imposing amendments to traffic management measures yesterday. The council also said that its analysis showed that as well the extra traffic using the roads, problems were caused by some drivers using illegal shortcuts. To make sure this doesn’t happen again, it is changing the layout of Lambton street and nelson street, which form the main access to the Trinity square car park. The changes mean: ■access will continue to be possible from the east along Lambton street, and from the west along nelson street – including to businesses on the northern side of nelson street; ■all traffic exiting from the Trinity square car park will need to turn left and use nelson street and the West Central Route; ■ There will be no longer be access for through traffic along Lambton street from east to west. This will simplify traffic movements and enable the traffic signals at the exit of Trinity square to be shut off, avoiding the lengthy delays experienced last weekend. In addition, additional yellow warning signs will be positioned at the Oakwellgate roundabout and on the approaches, as well as on askew Road, west of the junction with the a184 West Central Route. In the medium term, the borough will be carrying out further analysis of its network, including Bensham roundabout (junction of a184 and B1426), Regent Terrace/Charles street and the Park Lane roundabout, to assess what changes may be beneficial to improve the management of traffic flows. Marc Morley, service director for highways at gateshead Council, said: “gateshead is firmly committed to tackling the climate emergency and resolving problems with air quality. “We have made significant changes to our town centre road network to help address those issues, and will continue to refine our approach. “any action we take must sit within the wider context of the council’s responsibilities to all road users and pedestrians. “We need to shift the balance away from the private car and towards alternative forms of transport, and would urge all our residents, and those travelling into gateshead from neighbouring areas, to please choose the most appropriate, and least polluting mode of transport for their journey.” however, some users on the Trinity square Facebook page weren’t convinced, with one saying the problem had been months in the making. They wrote: “This isn’t just a problem from last weekend “It’s been like that for months and months, getting worse by the Friday afternoon.” another wrote: “Drivers using ‘illegal’ shortcuts are doing so out of sheer frustration.”

Taxi driver Richard Jagger returned from a night of working to find their home in Bedlington, Northumberland, unlocked and his partner, who had been drinking, was in bed. A court heard he punched and slapped her, sat on her and armed himself with a wrench and smashed her phone during a “prolonged attack”. The 32-year-old, latterly of Disraeli Street, Blyth, pleaded guilty to assault occasioning actual bodily harm and has now been given a suspended prison sentence. Newcastle Crown Court heard they had been together for 10 years he smashed phone when she tried to call for help and married for three and have two children together. Neil Pallister, prosecuting, said: “The relationship has been up and down and she says there’s a previous history of violence in the relationship.” On April 2, Jagger was working and his wife went to her sister’s house to have a few drinks and their children were at their grandparents’ home. Mr Pallister said: “The complainant said she was drunk when she returned home some time after midnight and went to bed. “The next thing she recalls is being woken by the defendant. “She said he came upstairs shouting at her, having a go at her because she had left the front door unlocked. He was concerned someone could have come and stolen his motorbikes, which were in the kitchen. “He was angry and kept getting in her face, going up and down stairs. He was drinking and each time he came up he was getting more and more angry. “He hit her about the head with a closed fist.” The victim said he kept coming and going and at one point came upstairs holding a wrench. Mr Pallister said: “She was scared. “She had her mobile phone on her because she was trying to charge it up and call her family for help and when he saw the phone in her hand he wanted to know who she was Richard Jagger ringing or texting. She said he then grabbed the phone from her hand and smashed it with the wrench. He put it on the floor and hit it several times with the wrench. “He then got her on the floor and sat on top of her and she was struggling to move. “He was still holding the wrench and she was screaming at him to get off and was scared. She grabbed the hand he had the wrench in and he eventually let her up. She was left with two large bumps on her head, bruises to her arms and friction burns to her elbows. Jagger, who has 13 previous convictions, including for violence, pleaded guilty to assault on the basis there were two punches and one slap. He also admitted criminal damage to the phone. Judge Edward Bindloss sentenced Jagger to 12 months, suspended for two years, for the attack, which he called “prolonged”. He also ordered him to do 80 hours’ unpaid work. Richard Bloomfield, for Jagger, said he was remorseful, has recently been diagnosed with autism and is still working as a taxi driver.

ADVERTISING FEATURE Grassroots cultural groups support UK City of Culture bid The compelling and people-based arTs projecTs in counTy durham hoping To help clinch The coveTed TiTle County Durham is in the running to be UK City of Culture 2025, a title that would showcase the creative ambition, talent, and heritage of communities across the county, while bringing transformational social and economic benefits to the entire North East. County Durham’s bid, submitted by Durham County Council with principal partner Durham University on behalf of Culture Durham, is in a very strong position indeed. The county boasts a UNESCO world heritage site, a globally renowned university and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There is also first-class cricket and a calendar of world-class events including Lumiere and Kynren. Along with 19 other locations across the UK and Ireland, Culture Durham will discover if the Durham 2025 bid has made the shortlist of six places later this month. To find out more about the bid, visit: www.durham2025.co.uk In County Durham, there are a number of organisations producing exciting and engaging arts and cultural activities at a grassroots level, many of which have been life-changing for those taking part and are a tribute to the county, its heritage, and its communities. Here are three examples: The Forge The Forge has a reputation for working with some of County Durham’s most socially and economically disadvantaged communities, bringing nationally and internationally acclaimed artists to work with children and young people, and school and community partners across the region. An Arts Council-funded organisation, it has been based in Stanley for 20 years and was set up in 2001 by Tony Harrington, executive director. He explained: “Our specialism is to work within schools and other agencies to ensure that every child and young person in the region has access to high quality arts experiences.” “The youngsters we work with are digitally very sophisticated, and our arts programmes recognise their digital competencies as well as helping them to develop more traditional arts skills. As well as working closely with schools, our multi-agency work focuses on engaging children and young people who have had limited opportunities to access the arts - such as those who are not in education or employment. We want to ensure that every young person is given the opportunity to experience the arts and develop their own creative pathway - which supports their well-being and their future employability.” One of The Forge’s proudest achievements was the UK premiere of Defiant Requiem: Verdi at Terezin at Durham Cathedral. The piece commemorates the victims of the Terezin concentration camp in Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia Nursery school children take part in arts activities supported by the Forge where tens of thousands died during the Second World War. He added: “Our Defiant Requiem programme was initially developed in response to the reported rise in extreme right-wing radicalisation in the UK. We began by touring a production of The Tin Ring into schools which tells the story of a young girl’s’ experiences in the Holocaust. The idea was to expose young people to the cataclysmic harm that can be caused by scapegoating others and allowing prejudice to flourish.’’ NorTherN hearTlaNds Northern Heartlands firmly believes in the creative power of communities to bring about real change. The Barnard Castle-based charity operates across south west County Durham, including many rural and coalfield communities. For director Jill Cole, one of the proudest moments was a few years back when a mighty metal monster appeared in the former pit village of Willington. This was The Man Engine, described by its Cornish creators as the largest mechanical puppet ever created in Britain. She explained: “The population of Willington is below 6,000 but it looked as if everyone had turned out to see it on that June day in 2018.” “The event and the work we did leading up to it connected young people to the mining industry of County Durham’s past, but also helped people to rediscover a huge sense of pride in their place. It’s amazing what you can achieve when you get to know what makes communities tick.’’ ‘If These Walls Could Talk,’ a community based visual arts project commissioned by east durham Creates, brought people of all ages together. Credit: richard Kenworthy Another highlight of the work of Northern Heartlands was a community opera called ‘Song of our Heartland’ which was produced by Opera North. It was developed in partnership with members of local communities from south west County Durham, a region with a strong heritage in mining and railway industries, as well as upland hill-farming. Jill added: “The project showed the strength of community spirit here in County Durham and just what we can achieve when we work together.’’ easT durham CreaTes East Durham Creates engages people in creative activities, inspired by East Durham and made for and by the communities who live there. The man engine event at Willington by Paul Norris a rehearsal of the community opera song of our heartland with composer Will Todd Part of the Creative People and Places programme and funded by Arts Council England, the organisation is managed by East Durham Trust. East Durham Creates has helped transform communities by getting more local people involved in creating and experiencing great art. Project Lead Jess Hunt explained: “We aim to remove the barriers to help people engage with arts and culture and those barriers can be lack of income, lack of transport or a fear that art isn’t for them. We make sure that the art and culture we promote is relevant and inclusive.” “One of our biggest achievements are the cultural hubs formed from existing community centres, led by and for local people. These hubs now have their own programmes of performances and exhibitions, which are shaped by the communities they serve.” “Whether we’re commissioning new work from community groups or international artists, East Durham Creates projects will always be inspired by things that local people have told us matter to them - the people, stories and heritage that are unique to our area.’’

Further investigation revealed the memorial to Second Lt F J G Leadbitter 10/60th Rifles had in fact been stolen from the church in 2008. Officers from Northumbria Police’s Hexham Neighbourhood Policing Team joined forces with a team from Durham Constabulary and recovered the memorial and delivered it back to its rightful home. Hexham NPT Inspector Garry Neill said: “This was an impressive discovery by our eagle-eyed officer who, thinking it a rather unusual item to see for sale, did some digging in his own time and sought the help of his on-duty colleagues to investigate further. “Thanks to his dedication and, quite frankly, thoughtfulness and eagerness to do the right thing and make sure this memorial was returned to the rightful place, a brave soldier’s legacy will live on.” Inspector Neill added: “We also want to thank the shop for their assistance in returning the memorial.” Inspector Chris Farish with officers who helped track down the origin of the memorial found in a Durham second-hand shop University staff feeling ‘at risk’ By DANIEL HOLLAND Local democracy reporter daniel.holland@reachplc.com Northumbria university staff say teaching on campus after the removal of Covid safety measures is ‘deeply concerning’ and could take industrial action. the universities and Colleges union (uCu) has issued a warning after a poll of 500 Northumbria members found that 75% “feel unsafe about teaching on campus”, ahead of the start of teaching in the new academic year next week. Students will be getting more face-to-face learning this year, as more lectures and seminars are held in-person again rather than online. but face coverings and social distancing will no longer be mandatory across the campus. the uCu said axeing the measures “risks threatening staff, students, and the community”, with the union set to declare a formal dispute with the university over the concerns and ballot members on potential industrial action. the university said it was holding talks with trade unions this week to try and resolve the latest concerns and that its Covid protocols “are robust and either follow or exceed Government guidance”. in a statement on its website, the uCu said: “the prospect of teaching face-to-face, and seeing students and colleagues in person again, is exciting. but things are nowhere near ‘normal’ yet, and it is disingenuous and dangerous to pretend otherwise. Such a position risks threatening staff, students, and the community. this means the prospect of face-to-face teaching is, for some, deeply concerning, as it was last year.” the union claimed that some staff had been told to “do face-toface or resign” and urged the university to reinstate safety measures to “avoid the chaos, stress and overwork” endured last year. the uCu said its members wanted the university to provide weekly updates on reports of Covid cases, require staff and students have two negative lateral flow tests a week, and mandate the wearing of PPE in defined situations. Northumbria branch members voted in favour of a motion accusing the university of a “breach of trust and of health and safety guidance” and to declare a dispute “with a view to balloting for industrial action as soon as possible thereafter, if the university fails to consult meaningfully with the trade unions and deliver enhanced health and safety measures before induction week”. a university spokesman confirmed there has been no formal dispute declared by the union at this stage. they added: “the university continues to hold regular discussions with our recognised trade unions in order to resolve issues of concern. our Covid-19 safety procedures are robust and either follow or exceed Government guidance. We strongly encourage staff, students and visitors to wear face coverings inside buildings, when moving around and when in close proximity to each other. We expect everyone to be respectful of others’ views and to wear a face covering if asked to do so.” he added: “our clear aim is to deliver the highest possible learning experience for our students, providing face-to-face teaching on campus within a supportive community. We are taking reasonable measures to ensure this is carried out safely for the wellbeing of both our staff and students.”

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2021 The Chronicle 11 News No firework extravaganza for park this year Families hoping to see the return of Gateshead’s main Bonfire Night fireworks display this year will be disappointed at news that it will not be going ahead. The popular saltwell Park event, cancelled last year due to the pandemic, won’t be taking place this November either, it has been confirmed. The fireworks extravaganza - described as the region’s biggest display and traditionally accimpanied by a bonfire, music and a funfair - has been run in recent years by metro Radio, with previous events in the Victorian park attracting around 30,000 people. Gateshead Council said it is aware that metro Radio has decided against organising an event in saltwell Park this year. But there is some good news in that the council will be working with the radio station to bring the fireworks display back in 2022. While this year’s decision will be a blow to those looking forward to seeing a return to some normality and hoping to celebrate November 5 in style at the official display, local families might still be in luck as there are plans for other displays in Gateshead to mark Bonfire Night. While it is too early to have plans signed off, the council’s events team has received requests from other organisers for smaller displays in the borough which will be subject to health and safety and risk assessments before any might be confirmed. a spokeswoman for Gateshead Council said: “The saltwell Park event is not going ahead this year but we’ll be working with a previous year’s display at saltwell Park metro Radio to bring it back next year. There will be other fireworks displays taking place in Gateshead this year though and we’ll be publishing details of the confirmed events on our website soon. all events continue to be considered by the Gateshead safety advisory Group and event organisers are expected to provide Covid mitigation measures within their risk assessments.” healthlottery.co.uk play in-store | app | online Campaign to support fans’ mental health By SAM VOLPE Reporter sam.volpe@reachplc.com The Newcastle United Foundation has launched a new text line to support people struggling with their mental health. As part of its Be A Game- Changer campaign, the charity has launched a 24/7 service which people access by texting BAGC to 85258. Whether it’s to talk about anxiety, loneliness, self-harm or suicide, texting the number will put you in touch with trained volunteers. The service is operated by national organisation Shout and is completely free. Ashley Lowe, the charity’s health and wellbeing manager, said: “We know the coronavirus crisis has had an enormous impact on all of our lives and while we have clear data to show how Covid-19 affects us physically, it is much harder to know what effect this has taken on our mental health. “We believe issues like unemployment, loneliness and economic hardship will have exacerbated feelings of being unable to cope, and, for some, this may have led to an increased selfharm and suicide risk for people here in the North east.” Ashley said he hoped the new service would encourage football fans to reach out for support if they need it, and to support one another on the terraces. he added: “We hope this new service provides a talking point for all United supporters, but suicide prevention doesn’t have to be overwhelming - even a ‘hello, how are you?’ could save a life.” The BAGC campaign is funded by Newcastle City Council, Premier League Charitable Fund, North east and North Cumbria Suicide Prevention Network, and The National Lottery Community Fund. Business cards highlighting the initiative were handed out at NUFC’s game against Leeds United, and to get hold of some for community groups people can contact ashley.lowe@nufc.co.uk.

A homeless man has admitted bludgeoning a head waiter to death with a marble ashtray, bringing to an end a cold case spanning nearly 40 years. Anthony Kemp, 59, killed Dublin-born Christopher Ainscough after they met on a night out in December 1983. mr Ainscough, 50, had invited Kemp back to his home in Kilburn north-west london in the early hours of the morning. his body was discovered by police who went to check on him when he did not turn up to work at the Grieveson Grant and Co restaurant in the City, the Crown Prosecution service (CPs) said. he had suffered devastating head injuries, including a fractured skull, from being hit with a marble ashtray weighing 2.4kg, which was found at the scene. The original murder investigation into mr Ainscough’s death was closed in 1985 after no leads were found. on July 28 last year, Kemp turned up at Chiswick police station in west london and began to throw stones at the window, before an officer came out to speak to him just after 4am. Kemp then confessed to the murder, Anthony Kemp, left, and his victim Christopher Ainscough telling the officer: “You know what, I’m homeless, and I’m not going to sleep on the streets.” Kemp, who was previously an alcoholic and heroin user with a capacity for “extreme violence”, later tried to retract his confession. But police matched his DNA to that left on a cigarette butt discarded at the scene of the murder. At a hearing at the old Bailey yesterday, Kemp, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to the murder. Prosecutor Gareth Patterson QC said Kemp had killed the victim in a “wholly disproportionate response” to being touched. he said: “The prosecution do not dispute the suggestion there may have been an invitation to the flat and then touching of the defendant by mr Ainscough. “We do not dispute that – however, obviously the prosecution case is all the defendant then had to do was to say no or to walk away. “so in those circumstances it seems to us it was a wholly disproportionate response. It was an angry response to the touching.” The defendant entered his guilty plea by video link from Wandsworth Prison. Judge John hillen adjourned sentencing until october 13. Angela moriarty from the CPs said afterwards: “This case remained unsolved for more than 35 years before Anthony Kemp turned up at a police station to confess. “he later retracted the confession and went on to blame another man, who had been dead for some years, before finally admitting the murder. “Although we have never been able to trace any of his family, I hope this conviction provides some sense of closure to all those who knew mr Ainscough.” The Duchess of Cambridge (left) with British US Open Champion Emma Raducanu New queen of tennis meets the Duchess eMMA Raducanu may be uS Billed as a warm-up session Afterwards during an online congratulations to all of you - open women’s champion, but when it came to trading volleys with the Duchess of cambridge, her tennis mantra was: “Don’t miss, don’t miss”.

facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle Climate activist Greta Thunberg speaks at a large-scale climate strike march by Fridays for Future in front of the Reichstag in Berlin yesterday SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2021 The Chronicle 13 News / World Thunberg joins climate rally in Germany ThousaNds of environmental string of rallies around the world years ago. change, and we are the change.” activists have staged a rally outside Germany’s parliament two days before the country holds a national election to demand that politicians take stronger action to curb climate change. The protest outside the Reichstag in Berlin was part of a amid dire warnings that the planet faces dangerous temperature rises unless greenhouse gas emissions are cut sharply in the coming years. The idea for a global “climate strike” was inspired by teenage swedish activist Greta Thunberg’s solo protest in stockholm three The 18-year-old addressed the rally from a stage, telling the crowd that voting is important but must be coupled with protests that put politicians under constant pressure. “We can still turn this around,” she said to cheers. “We demand Thunberg and prominent German climate activist Luisa Neubauer accused politicians of falling short, saying the programmes of the main parties are not far-reaching enough to limit global warming to 1.5C – the more ambitious limit in the 2015 Paris climate accord. North Korea promises talks if hostilities lifted Kim Yo Jong, sister of North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un The influential sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has said her country is willing to resume talks with South Korea if conditions are met, indicating it wants Seoul to persuade Washington to relax crippling economic sanctions. Kim Yo Jong’s statement came days after North Korea performed its first missile tests in six months, which some experts said were intended to show it will keep boosting its weapons arsenal if the US-led sanctions continue while nuclear diplomacy remains stalled. She offered the talks while mentioning South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s call, in a speech at the UN General Assembly, for a political declaration to end the 1950-53 Korean War as a way to bring peace to the peninsula. “Smiling a forced smile, reading the declaration of the termination of the war, and having photos taken could be essential for somebody, but I think that they would hold no water and would change nothing, given the existing inequality, serious contradiction therefrom and hostilities,” Kim Yo Jong said in the statement carried by state media. She said North Korea is willing to hold “constructive” talks with South Korea to discuss how to improve and repair strained ties if the South stops provoking the North with hostile policies, far-fetched assertions and double standards. South Korea’s Unification Ministry said it is carefully reviewing her statement, and will continue efforts to restore ties. The US-led sanctions have been toughened following North Korea’s provocative run of nuclear and missile tests in 2016-17, and Kim Jong Un has said the sanctions, the coronavirus pandemic and natural disasters were causing the “worst-ever” crisis in North Korea. earlier this year, he warned he would enlarge the country’s nuclear arsenal if the US refused to abandon its “hostile policy” towards North Korea. North Korea and the US are still technically at war because the Korean War ended with an armistice, not a peace treaty. Pyongyang has consistently wanted to sign a peace treaty to formally end the war as a step towards improved relations. Some experts say a treaty could allow North Korea to demand that the US withdraw its 28,500 troops in South Korea and ease the sanctions. Both Koreas called for an end-ofwar declaration and a peace treaty during a period of diplomacy with the US that began in 2018. There was speculation that then president Donald Trump might announce the war’s end in early 2019 to convince Mr Kim to commit to denuclearisation. No announcement was made as the talks reached a stalemate after Mr Trump rejected Mr Kim’s calls for the lifting of toughened sanctions in exchange for limited denuclearisation steps. Kim Yo Jong’s offer for talks was a stark contrast to a blunt statement issued by a senior North Korean diplomat earlier on Friday that the endof-war declaration could be a “smokescreen” covering up hostile US policies. Last week, North Korea conducted its first cruise and ballistic missile tests since March, demonstrating its ability to launch attacks on South Korea and Japan, two key US allies where a total of 80,000 American soldiers are stationed. But Pyongyang is maintaining a moratorium on nuclear tests and launches of longrange missiles that directly target the American homeland, a sign that it wants to keep chances for future diplomacy with Washington alive. GLOBAL BRIEFING Syria death toll ‘certainly’ higher than 350,000 The United Nations human rights chief says her office has documented the deaths of 350,209 people – civilians and combatants – in Syria’s civil war over the past decade, while admitting the real number is almost certainly far higher. Michelle Bachelet said the figures, dating between March 2011 and March 2021, were tallied based on information that identified people by name as well as by date and location of death. The Office of the high Commissioner for human Rights has long cited difficulties in obtaining a clear picture of the rights situation in Syria, and stopped updating the death toll from Syria’s civil war in early 2014 – at a count of 191,369. The new figure provided by the UN rights office is far lower than an estimate from the Syrian Observatory of human Rights, which in June put the estimated toll at more than 606,000 – including 495,000 documented deaths. Archbishop stays amid criticism POPe Francis has decided to leave in office a prominent German archbishop who has faced criticism for his handling of the church’s sexual abuse scandal, but the cleric has decided to take time out, his archdiocese said. The Pope “is counting on” the archbishop of Cologne, Cardinal Rainer Maria woelki, the Vatican said in a statement. “But at the same time it is clear that the archbishop and the archdiocese need a time for a pause, renewal and reconciliation.” Italy release Catalan leader A lAwyeR for jailed Catalan separatist leader Carles Puigdemont says a judge in Sardinia will order him released from jail ahead of a court decision on Spain’s extradition request. Agostinoangelo Marras told reporters outside the courthouse in Sassari, Sardinia, that when the judge asked Puigdemont if he wanted to be returned to Spain, his client replied “no”. Mr Marras said a three-judge panel will take up the extradition request and decide “in a very short time”.

HOW TO CLAIM Howard Street in North Shields in the early years of the last century By TONY HENDERSON @Hendrover MeMories are being gathered to recreate the years when a street was the commercial centre of a Tyneside town. As part of a project to revitalise the centre of North shields, volunteers from North Tyneside-based remembering the Past want to hear from people who worked on Howard street, which was once the focus of the town’s commercial life, with building societies, accountants and insurance companies among the businesses based there. Dr Kath smith, lead volunteer and trustee at remembering the Past, said: “The post-war period was a time when North shields was really busy, with a thriving fishing industry and shipbuilding presence which supported a huge range of local businesses and commercial services located in and around Howard street. “We know that lots of people will have memories of working in the town at this time so, whether you went into a clerical role after learning shorthand and typing at Lambert’s Commercial school on saville street, or if you worked in one of the council offices that were in Howard street and nearby Northumberland square, we would love to hear from you.” stories of events that took place in Northumberland square are also needed. Kath said: “Local people will remember how public events were marked in Howard street and Northumberland square. “For example, we know that the square would be packed on Good Friday as the Procession of Witness gathered there to be addressed by local dignitaries. And we know that a cannon would sound the beginning of a new year and that you could catch a bus to anywhere from the square. “What local people haven’t had the chance to do is celebrate all of these memories and see them added to the social and cultural history of the town, and now we’re appealing for people’s help to make this happen.” The memories are being collected as PeoPle who worked in commercial centre are aPPealed to part of the High street Heritage Action Zone project, which will revitalise the town’s historic centre, with a particular focus on Howard street and Northumberland square, which contain several of the town’s listed buildings and public spaces. People’s stories will be captured through interviews and stored as part of remembering the Past’s digital archive of life in North Tyneside. They will also inform art and cultural events celebrating the history of North shields, including a community-led performance. remembering the Past is a volunteer-led organisation in North shields which collects people’s memories and stories about every aspect of life in North Tyneside, and is one of the longest-established digital archives of local history anywhere in the UK. The team was recently awarded the prestigious Queens Award for Volunteers, the highest award a voluntary group can receive in the UK. North Tyneside Council has been awarded £900,000 by Historic england through the High street Heritage Action Zone project. it will deliver a four-year programme of physical improvements and community and cultural activities.

Scan the code or visit: ReadeRs of a certain vintage will recall this long-standing Newcastle store. Isaac Walton & Co sat at the top end of Grainger street for decades. Our image, courtesy of Newcastle Libraries, was taken in 1970. Generations of Tyneside customers bought their clothes at the highly-regarded tailors and outfitters. The business opened in 1887. an advertisement from the evening Chronicle in 1907 gives an idea of what was on offer during a sale at the store just 20 years after its inception. There were ‘most liberal reductions’, with ‘all hosiery, shirts and hats greatly reduced’. and what about those edwardian prices? a gentleman’s suit for 17/11 (less than £2 in today’s money) or a boy’s suit for 4/11 (around 25p today). Much later, in the decades after the second World War, children would be taken to the prestigious store by their parents to be fitted with school uniforms. One former employee, sylvia, contacted the Chronicle to fondly Store where the best-dressed people could always be found recall working at Isaac Walton. she was employed in the Grainger street store in the early 1960s for three years after leaving school and said it was a “brilliant place to work”. sylvia worked in tailoring services as an alteration hand and was managed by a Mr Ogilvy. she mainly did suit alterations but she also had to sew leathers on to riding jackets and braids on to sailor uniforms. she recalled the intricacies of the job: “Mr Morris, one of the tailor men, showed me one of his tricks of the trade which meant customers came back for an extra fitting. “We had to put big tacks down the sleeves and sides of suit jackets, as well as down the suit trouser legs to make it look like the suit wasn’t finished when really it was. “I also learned how to felt collars on men’s suits. When a man tried on a suit, we had to push our hand up the collar and if we could feel a bump of material we had to unpick the collar and push the bump up into the collar and resew it by hand.” Over the years, the business occupied three different sites on Grainger street. In fact, venture there today and an attractive black and white doorway mosaic as you enter the Grainger Market is a physical reminder of Isaac Walton’s former presence there.

For the last two years it has funded a role as part of the foundation’s clinical trials team at the hospital’s northern Centre for Cancer Care, and the building society and charity have announced this will continue. the role is filled by Killingworth’s Lesley hill, who said she felt privileged to work in “such a special place”. she added: “even though they’re facing the most difficult of situations, our patients and their families are very much onside with what we’re aiming to achieve, and we all work together as a team. “the work we do here and the level of targeted detail that goes into our Partnership’s £3m in cancer care donations trials is truly mind-blowing, and being part of treatments that will make a difference both now and in the future is a real honour.” the charitable foundation - started in 2008 by sir Bobby robson and wife Lady elsie - funds projects at newcastle’s hospitals, alongside cancer care around the region and more widely.

facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2021 The Chronicle 19 By ROB KENNEDY Court reporter rob.kennedy@reachplc.com A dAd has been jailed for repeatedly pestering his former partner and her family in a bid to see his daughter. Paul Reay has repeatedly flouted a restraining order banning him from contacting the mother of his child. The 23-year-old, of Brandon Gardens, Beacon Lough, Gateshead, was given a suspended sentence for breaching the order just a month before the latest offences. despite this, he contacted the woman’s family and boyfriend, leaving them in fear. A court heard the woman has already moved house once and is afraid to let the little girl play out in the garden in case Reay turns up. Michael Bunch, prosecuting, told Newcastle Crown Court, the restraining order was made in August 2018. He has a long history of breaching it and the latest four offences happened in August this year. Contact via a third party is allowed with his daughter but Mr Bunch said: “He repeatedly goes via others in a direct route to get the message across.” On August 16 a message was sent from Reay’s partner’s social media Man jailed for pestering mum of his daughter account to his ex’s partner’s account which included encouragement to “get your bird told”. Two days later a message was sent from the same account to the woman’s mother saying “There will be hell on real soon, the s*** is going to hit the fan and it won’t be nice” and indicating retribution if he was not able to see his daughter. A message was also sent to the woman’s aunt threatening to damage gym equipment because his daughter was visible on footage uploaded to an internet health hub page. He told her to get in touch with his ex’s mother and made comments about access to his daughter. On August 27 he sent a message to his ex’s partner’s mother saying: “I’m coming today. Watch what happens to your son.” Referring to a victim impact statement from Reay’s ex, Mr Bunch said: “The messaging leaves her feeling frightened and she’s concerned he might come to her address because he is clearly not taking any notice of the restraining order. “She’s frightened to let her daughter play in the garden in case he turns up and says she should not have to live in fear of him.” The court heard Reay has 34 previous convictions, including several breaches of the order, threatening behaviour and violence. He was given an eight-week suspended sentence a month before the latest offence for breaching the restraining order. For the latest breaches he was jailed for 12 months and the eight week suspended sentences was activated consecutively. Recorder david Brooke QC told him: “The messages are threatening and aggressive and intimidating. “What makes this worse is your appalling record and complete disregard for court orders in the past. “I’ve never seen so many breaches or offences relating to harassment on a record. “I hope you realise, behaving like this is not helping you see your News Paul Reay daughter, it’s doing exactly the opposite.” Tom Mitchell, defending, said: “His motivation, albeit mistakenly and badly, is to see his daughter. His motivation is not malice towards his ex partner. “The way he can go about seeing his daughter is not this way but he is motivated by a genuine desire to see his daughter.” Mr Mitchell said he had not breached the order’s geographical exclusion zone and that it was “words rather than deeds”. He added that he is in a new relationship, his partner is pregnant and he has learned his lesson after being remanded in custody for four weeks.

Newcastle lost that night – but famously won the return to qualify from the group after having lost their first three matches 1660: active and lusty. 1818: Samuel Pepys drank his first cuppa, after reading that tea made the body The first blood transfusion using human blood, as opposed to earlier attempts with animal blood, took place at Guy’s Hospital in London. 1872: Sir Charles Cochran, THE English impresario dubbed Britain’s Greatest Showman, was born. From 1914 to 1949, he presented some of the best musicals and revues. 1885: It snowed in London, the earliest recorded winter fall despite reports that on June 12 1791 there had been snow sighted over the capital. That was recorded as late summer, not winter, snow. 1897: 1933: Britain’s first motor bus service started in Bradford. More than 25,000 queued to see the Shroud of Turin when it went on show to the public for the first time in 400 years at Turin Cathedral. 1962: Sonny Liston won the world heavyweight boxing title, knocking out Floyd Patterson in the first round in Chicago.

YoUR CHRoNICLE: If you have any queries regarding the quality of production of this newspaper, please do not hesitate to contact our Newspaper Sales Department on 0191 232 7500 or write to the Newspaper Sales Department, ncjMedia, 2nd Floor, INTU Eldon Square, Eldon Court, Percy Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE1 7JB The recycled paper content of UK newspapers in 2016 was 62.8% post 9/11 war just was not necessary IT is said that one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter, and it is often the case that people rightly enraged by a terrorist act, only end up supporting further terrorism. As John Gray writes, “it was obvious a war was coming after 9/11. The West simply could not allow such an atrocity to go unpunished. That punishment had to be severe or others might have looked to commit horrific attacks (Letters, September 15).” A war may have been obvious; thanks to our warmongering leaders and media, but it wasn’t necessary. Seeking those involved in organising the twin tower attacks was the most obvious course of action. Terrorising and killing innocent people was not. Furthermore, if the 9/11 atrocity warranted the killing of innocent men, women and children, then this must also apply to ‘western’ atrocities. To follow Mr. Gray’s logic; Iraq – this century’s worst terrorist attack – would ‘rightly’ lead to vengeful attacks against ‘westerners’ by Iraqis. In fact, MI5 warned Tony Blair about the risk of creating ‘feedback’ terrorism prior to the 2003 Iraq invasion. Mr. Gray’s thinking is the logic of terrorism. he also fails to mention the uncomfortable truth that the Islamic terrorists who committed the 9/11 attacks were funded and trained by US and British forces. Additionally, if ‘punishment needs to be severe’ then it is time we held our leaders accountable otherwise they will continue to endanger our forces in illegitimate forays in foreign countries, destabilise nations and risk terrorism at home. Only when we stop supporting terrorism and move away from the logic of ‘revengeful’ terrorism will we reduce its threat and have the right to judge others. Tony BenneTT, Ashington Lack of wind is a real cause for concern The recent lack of wind has shown how fragile our increasing dependence of wind power to provide electricity has become. Under current green policies we are switching to electric cars which will require huge amounts of current 24 hours a day to recharge batteries and also being told to convert gas heating systems in our homes to electric units. Unless there is a dramatic change of direction I foresee in the not-too-distant future we will be subjected to frequent power cuts affecting all walks of life including food production, computer operations, broadcasting and education. Surely we have to find a greener way to use fossil fuels of norman Tebbit which there is an abundance until a sustainable alternative is found. BriAn TAyLor, north Shields not just Americans who are aggressive! WITh interest I read the letter from Alan Marsden and his obvious dislike of the Americans. his history lesson is very selective on killing people in other countries. In the not-too-distant history of europe – and I include us – no one has been more aggressive than europeans. When you talk about colonialism blame lies at the door of the British, Portuguese, Spanish, French...need I go on? And the biggest genocidal attempt has been perpetrated nearly in my lifetime. If my parents and their family and hundreds of thousands of get everything you need to know about where you live with our app or via the inyourArea.co.uk All you have to do is enter a postcode. young men and women in the early 1940s had chosen to run instead of fight, our freedom would be even less than it is now. When it come to aggression you don’t have far to look. CHS Disbelief over views of our ministers I ThInk our ministers have caught the ‘Let them eat cake’ syndrome when talking of axing the Universal Credit uplift. I know I must be voicing the opinion of the majority of people when they read,with disbelief, that these people really think that anyone can ask and get more hours from their employer or indeed find a better paid job. Perhaps they are harking back to the days of norman Tebbit’s advice of ‘get on your bike’. e.MorTon, CHoppingTon

30 The Chronicle SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2021 chroniclelive.co.uk Racing / Rugby union Summer signing Richard Palframan is set for his Newcastle Falcons debut today at Bath – the former Worcester Warriors prop packing down at tight-head in a side showing three changes from last weekend. Fellow prop Adam Brocklebank also comes into the starting XV for the Gallagher Premiership clash at the Recreation Ground. The only other change from Sunday’s 26-20 home loss to champions Harlequins sees Will Haydon-Wood start at fly-half. The 20-year-old is making his fourth senior appearance for the club, and his first Premiership start, having made his debut during last season’s European Challenge Cup win at French side Castres. On the bench there is a return for Scotland international Gary Graham who scored two of the Falcons’ three tries on their last visit to Bath – a 19-12 win in last season’s opening fixture. Looking to build on the promise shown from Sunday’s battling bonus-point loss against Harlequins, director of rugby Dean Richards said: “There were a huge amount of positives for us last week. “The nice thing was the boys were disappointed in the changing room afterwards talking about how they could improve it rather than celebrating getting the bonus point. “I thought a lot of our young boys stood up incredibly well. “We showed a lot of ambition and were not always rewarded despite getting over the opposition’s try-line on a number of occasions. “We will take the positives from that and move forward - and that begins at Bath.” With many of the headlines focusing on Adam Radwan and Iwan Stephens’ try-scoring contribution from the wing last time out, Richards added: “Both of our wingers looked sharp, Ben Stevenson is no slouch in the centres and Tom Penny at full-back is also a very dangerous runner. “They showed it last weekend, and Bath away is another great challenge for us. “I love the gladiatorial contest element of rugby, like we spoke about last week, but it is also great to see that exciting running element from the guys in our squad. “You cannot have one without the other and when our guys let rip the crowd just love it.” Fielding nine current or former Falcons academy players in his starting XV and a further four on the bench, Richards said: “We are having big numbers of academy graduates in our match-day squads and that is a great endorsement of what we are doing up here. “We are going in the right direction, we have boys coming through the system in good numbers and then as we have seen this week our guys are being recognised in the England squads. “We have four in the senior training squad and Mark Wilson would have been in with a shout had he not just underwent a meniscus operation on his knee which will likely keep him out for around eight to 12 weeks. “It is a blow having Mark out for that sort of length of time but the plus side is it should get him right and he will be back to his best when he does return. “We are also blessed in that area by having the likes of Gary Graham and Callum Chick now available for selection again, as well as the guys who were already in back-row contention.” Newcastle Falcons team (v Bath Rugby, today, 3.00, the Recreation Ground): 15 Tom Penny, 14 Adam Radwan, 13 Ben Stevenson, 12 Pete Lucock, 11 Iwan Stephens, 10 Will Haydon-Wood, 9 Louis Schreuder; 1 Adam Brocklebank, 2 George McGuigan, 3 Richard Palframan, 4 Greg Peterson, 5 Sean Robinson, 6 Philip van der Walt, 7 Will Welch (captain), 8 Carl Fearns.

facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2021 The Chronicle 31 Basketball / SAFC Loss Rocks Eagles on a Newcastle Eagles’ Rahmon Fletcher on the ball during their BBL Cup clash with Glasgow Rocks last night. Picture: DAVE MOORE night of no Cup cheer newcastle eagles 72 Glasgow Rocks 82 On March 6, 2020 thousands of dejected Newcastle fans trooped out of the Eagles Community Arena in downcast mood. Worcester Wolves had just inflicted a 95-79 defeat on Ian MacLeod’s men and attention was already turning towards the next homecourt clash and an early opportunity to bounce back. Few of those present could ever have imagined it would be another 18 months before top-flight hoops with fans returned to Tyneside. Yet finally BBL action was back as this season’s cup competition tipped off with a hotly-anticipated cross border showdown between the fired-up hosts and Glasgow Rocks. That the visitors flatly refused to play their part in what was supposed to be the ultimate homecoming party was a source of serious frustration for the returning hordes. The Eagles must go back to the drawing board following a distinctly unconvincing start to the new campaign. By simon rushworth Back-to-back homecourt losses always hurt but few expected Glasgow to inflict an 82-72 defeat on the reigning playoff champions. Sheffield Sharks will head north next Friday full of confidence in the face of a result likely to send earlyseason shockwaves through the BBL community. Of course, much has changed since Newcastle last suited up in front of a partisan home crowd and the positives have far outweighed any temporary setbacks. MacLeod has coolly steered his team towards three more trophies, making the potentially fraught transition from longstanding assistant to head coach appear easy. The Eagles’ nest boasts a brand new name with the Vertu Motors Arena taking centre stage as Tyneside’s most versatile entertainment venue. A whole host of players have come and gone - several never getting the chance to experience a noisy night in Newcastle. How Cortez Edwards and company would have loved the red-hot atmosphere ahead of tip-off, the constant support of a vocal crowd and the chance to showcase their skills on a truly special stage. In their stead MacLeod has recruited a new breed of homegrown heroes and overseas stars determined to build on the legacy of British basketball’s most decorated franchise. All five new signings - alongside returning favourite Kyle Williams - saw first-half court time as a typically feisty Anglo-Scottish derby burst into life. Last season’s Rocks proved to be a pale imitation of previous Glasgow teams as the Scots propped up the rest of the BBL. However, Gareth Murray’s men still managed to make life uncomfortable for Newcastle in the closing stages of an otherwise forgettable campaign and the remodelled visitors appeared determined to spoil a special night as they took a deserved 39-36 lead into the half. Perhaps unsurprisingly, given the nature of their stop-start pre-season, MacLeod’s Eagles looked like a team finding its feet and searching for form. However, the busy Duke Shelton burst off the bench to bag seven rebounds in just eight first half minutes. The second of two first- half scores was met with a hollering, chestbeating response much to the delight of the homecourt faithful. Former Leicester Rider Corey Johnson - surely one of the best pick-ups of the summer - made the most of his starting five spot to take five points and seven rebounds into the third quarter. Terrell Vinson’s seven points and five boards before the break hinted at a key role for the rookie American moving forward. However, MacLeod will have demanded more from his transitional team during the half-time interval. In skipper Rahmon Fletcher, Newcastle’s playcaller boasts the perfect candidate to haul his team back into contention on any night, anywhere. The two-time BBL MVP started the second half on fire - scoring five quick points and serving up a delicious no-look dish to Darius Defoe. Suddenly the Eagles were back on level terms - but it did not last. Any hopes of a Rocks collapse faded fast as the visitors opened up a quickfire double-digit lead. Newcastle were faced with a daunting 13-point deficit heading into the decisive final quarter. It was a lead Rocks never looked like relinquishing. The Eagles’ fans are back but their mojo is not. Not yet, anyway. ■■NEWCASTLE Eagles WBBL face the Caledonia Pride this afternoon and the homecourt Durham Palatinates tomorrow in WBBL Cup group games at Durham’s Sport and Wellbeing Park (both 3.00). Cats hope to seal Ell of a deal with rising star Embo By James Hunter Sunderland writer james.hunter@reachplc.com @JHunterChron SUNDERLAND have opened contract negotiations with academy product Elliot Embleton following his impressive start to the season. The 22-year-old - whose stunning strike in the home win against Wycombe Wanderers at the Stadium of Light was today voted the League One Goal of the Month for August - is in the final year of his current contract, with Sunderland having triggered an additional 12 months extension in January before allowing him to join Blackpool on loan. The midfielder helped the Tangerines secure promotion to the Championship via the play-offs last season but since returning to Wearside over the summer has established himself as a regular in head coach Lee Johnson’s side in the number ten position. Johnson confirmed the club has begun talks with Embleton’s camp over a new longterm deal. He said: “From my point of view, it is a case of maintaining the player-coach relationship and continuing to help Embo play as well as he has been playing. “I have really enjoyed watching him every day in training. “He has great feet and with the likes of him, Aiden McGeady, Alex Pritchard and Leon Dajaku, itis a pleasure to watch these guys in training and the things they do. “He has to keep enjoying his football, he has to keep concentrating on the pitch and let sporting director Kristjaan Speakman and his agent deal with the other side of it. “I am pretty sure that he has an appetite to stay and we certainly have an appetite to retain him on a long-term deal.” Embleton made his Sunderland debut in December 2017 but made only two appearances before spending the 2018-19 season on loan at Grimsby Town. He found first-team chances limited over the next two seasons but his time at Blackpool gave him the opportunity to play regular first-team football in League One. He has made 30 appearances for Sunderland in all competitions so far and has scored two goals. ■SUNDERLAND ■ goalkeeper Anthony Patterson has joined National League Notts County on a short-term loan. Patterson has joined the Midlands club for an initial 28-day period and was expected to make his debut in Notts County’s league game at Altrincham this afternoon. Sunderland’s Elliot Embleton

32 The Chronicle SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2021 chroniclelive.co.uk Bruce needs SUPERMAC to Up his game - Matt Shooting from the lip FORMER England defender Matt Upson believes Steve Bruce has to take responsibility for Newcastle United’s current injury predicament and start to the season. The Magpies are without a number of first-team players for this afternoon’s important Premier League trip to Watford as they search for their first win of the campaign. Steve Bruce confirmed in his pre-match press conference that Joe Willock and Jamaal Lascelles will miss the game, whie Callum Wilson, Paul Dummett, Jonjo Shelvey and Freddie Woodman remain out. United sit in 19th place and the pressure is mounting on Bruce to pick up victories sooner rather than later. The latest in the injury department would not have helped his cause and Upson, who worked with the 60-year-old at Birmingham City, insists a change might be needed to prevent further problems. He said: “Sometimes you may need to step back and look to see if there is something you can change. “Whether that be the conditioning, on the training pitch, there are a lot of things which can contribute to high numbers of injured players. “As a manager, it is probably the most dehabilitating thing you can have because you can be judged on results and your job - but if you do not have the players fit which you need then it is like doing your job with one hand tied behind your back. “So ultimately I feel it is the manager’s responsibility to get this right, make the big decisions and to try and change things as they do not have the right players available.” QUESTION: Which Premier League club do Watford most enjoy playing against? Answer: Newcastle United. They have beaten the Magpies in five of their 12 top-flight matches and taken 19 points off us, which is more than against any other club. At home they have lost only once in nine games to United. That is not just a poor record for a club the size of Newcastle, it is an embarrassing one. Watford used to be our derby match when I was a kid at Luton Town. I only played against them for one season and that was in the Third Division. We won promotion and they didn’t. Never once did I play Watford in my five years at Newcastle but here we are with the Magpies going down there and we are afraid of what might happen. The travelling fans will be apprehensive and it is up to the players to change all that. The next two matches against Watford and Wolves are crucial. I know they are both away and normally I would say a draw away is a good result but that is when a club has a decent home record. When they have not won a match all season, even though it is still very early doors, they must win at least one of these games coming up. Four points in the minimum acceptable return and they must target six. One of the many reasons why United have started the season so badly is that Steve Bruce selects so many players out of position. Normally you only do that in an emergency but Bruce has done it voluntarily time after time after time. He has played two wingers, Jacob Murphy and Matt Ritchie, effectively at full-back with great defensive responsibilities and then compounded it by playing a full-back, Emil Krafth, and a midfielder, Isaac Hayden, in the centre of the defence. Midfielder Isaac Hayden has been played in defence recently while two international centre-backs have sat on the Magpies’ bench One of the many reasons why United have started the season so badly is that Steve Bruce selects so many players out of position Underfire players in a bad position He has even done it all at once which meant more than half of the back five playing out of position. No wonder 13 goals have been conceded in only five league matches. There has been no opportunity to form an understanding because personnel has changed each week. Players hate being selected out of position because it exposes their weaknesses rather than promoting their strengths. I wonder how Bruce would have felt if Mark Hughes had suddenly been selected to play alongside him at Manchester United or Sir Alex Ferguson had demanded Bruce played as a defensive midfielder. Up front I worry over who is going to be a consistent goal threat for Newcastle with top scorer Callum Wilson injured and Joe Willock without a goal since his return to the club. We have no right to expect him to score as frequently as he did last season but he has not looked like scoring so far. If I was the owner I would be asking the manager why, after giving Dwight Gayle a three-year contract on good money, the striker cannot even get on the park when Newcastle are not winning matches. It beggars belief. Somebody has got something terribly wrong. Either the guy awarding the contract or the guy picking the team and making the substitutions. Whatever Bruce decides to do at Watford he had better get it right because this is a real opportunity which dare not be missed.

facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2021 The Chronicle 33 Bernard: Club are on standby mode By Lee RydeR Chief Newcastle writer lee.ryder@reachplc.com @lee_ryder Olivier Bernard believes Newcastle United’s stuttering start to the season is a byproduct of a club being in takeover limbo. The former full-back feels owner Mike Ashley has chosen not to invest too heavily in recruitment because the Sports Direct magnate is convinced the club will have new owners in 2022. Ashley was only prepared to sanction a staggered payment plan for Joe Willock this summer despite pleas from head coach Steve Bruce that more squad strength was needed. Bernard, who has stayed on Tyneside long after retirement, is now landlord of the Masons Arms pub in Blyth and mingles with fed-up fans every day. He said: “i am like the rest of the fans as far as the start to the season is concerned but i am not surprised we are sitting here with no wins after five games. “There is a lot of going on at the club in terms of selling to new owners. “i suspect everybody feels the same way, some will feel a sale is quite imminent but at the same time quite far off. “everybody chooses to go week by week hoping for a better tomorrow. even the owner has said himself it should be done in the next few months. “it is coming, there will be a takeover, the problem is when? “it is not clever for the owner to put money in when he thinks he has sold the club. “That leaves a difficult situation on the pitch because we as fans want more quality but at the same time we all want the club sold and hopefully now the Premier league can decide if this takeover takes place or not.” With an anti-competition court case hearing set to get start on Monday, fans hope United are at least able to give evidence against the Premier league from last year, when the case was delayed and then parked when the Middle east bidders lost patience. While we wait for answers from the court, and also the arbitration case which was paused until 2022, Bernard feels the pain of fans. He added: “We are in a dilemma in terms of is it wise to invest at the moment for the owner? “it is a tricky one because the supporters want to see the club do well. At the moment everything is on standby mode. It is hard for fans because we want to see them as an entertaining side but now seeing them in survival mode is tough Olivier Bernard (left) “That gives a feeling of uncertainty around the club. “Having it all in the back of your mind is very difficult. “even though you don’t think too much about it as a player it is still in the back of your head because you know as a player in terms of futures a lot of things can change overnight if it does go through.” Were Newcastle fans to wake up one day with new owners from Saudi Arabia, it would put them in with a chance of pushing for the top six again. Of course, things are never that easy but Bernard knows the club has that potential after twice being part of a side which qualified for the Champions league in the early noughties. He reflected: “if you speak to people they say: ‘We cannot wait for a takeover!’ “everybody wants to see Newcastle United do well. We all know how big a club it could turn into. “it is already a massive club but at the same time it is a sleeping giant. “Newcastle could dominate europe if they were in good hands. it is hard for fans because we want to see them as an entertaining side but seeing them in survival mode is tough.” As Newcastle prepared to face Watford this afternoon Bernard says he can feel the tension around the city. He is concerned relegation, which would be a third under Ashley, might see the whole Toon takeover bid collapse. Bernard says: “We have a good enough side to not worry about relegation. “At the same time, you want the club to push on further and look towards europe.” NEwcastlE’s legal fight with the Premier league is set to resume on Monday when a jurisdiction hearing will aim to decide whether an anti-competition hearing can go ahead. club owner Mike ashley is eager to push through a £300million deal to sell the Magpies to a saudi arabia-backed consortium - but has been met with resistance by the league. Monday’s hearing is the latest battle between the two sides and if the Premier league wins the day it means the public will not have the chance to hear any details on NUFC Monday a key day in Toon legal fight what unfolded between april and July 2020, which eventually resulted in amanda staveley, the Reuben brothers and saudi arabia’s Public Investment Fund walking away from a deal. staveley and co have made it clear they are waiting for results but have backed ashley’s bid to bring information into the public domain. Yet even if Newcastle do win the right to keep pushing their anticompetition claim, the Premier league is likely to play for time and the case could go on for weeks, even months. I loved my time at ‘amazing’ Newcastle, insists Sissoko Moussa sissoko has reflected on his time at Newcastle united ahead of a reunion with his old team-mates today. the France international left tyneside for £30million in 2017 to join tottenham before signing for watford this summer for £3million. Now 32, sissoko is looking to turn the page on his career after a four-year stint in North london with spurs. speaking ahead of this afternoon’s clash with his old club, sissoko said: “I remember when I first came to Newcastle, my first experience in the English league, it was amazing and I had a great time there. “the league was amazing but now the quality is even higher than before and each year you see amazing players come in. “Each week you play against the best players in the world, that is exciting for a player. “the best feeling is to be on the pitch, trying to compete against the best players in the world and playing in front of thousands of fans. You cannot have a better life than that.” sissoko has also warned his new team-mates that allan saint- Maximin is very much the dangerman for Newcastle. the former toulouse star added:“You have to be close to him during the whole game and make sure he gets as little of the ball as possible because we know if we give him space he has skills and he can bring danger at any time. “You also need to be careful of other players, though - if you only focus on one player another one can bring danger.”

34 The Chronicle SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2021 chroniclelive.co.uk NUFC Boss bemoans defending: ‘We can’t score three every week’ STEVE Bruce has criticised Newcastle’s defending again and said ‘it is impossible to score three every week’ as United struggle at both ends of the pitch. Having conceded 13 goals in just five Premier League games, the Magpies have the division’s worst defensive record. Meanwhile, without star striker Callum Wilson, Newcastle look far from threatening at times up front. Seeking to change things, Bruce switched from a back five to a back four against Leeds last week but said he is not fussed which formation United play as long as they achieve results. The former Manchester United centre-back said: “The one thing we cannot do is ship goals like we are. “It is impossible to score three every week in the Premier League, we have to tighten up. We changed system against Leeds andp we have played a back four 50% of my time and back five the other.” The Magpies have scored six times in the Premier League so far this season, while Allan Saint-Maximin put in a superb display last time out against Marcelo Bielsa’s side. Both teams failed to convert good opportunities in that game, with the match an entertaining one albeit with haphazard defending. Boyhood United fan Bruce said he knows fans want attacking football but he again hinted he does not believe he has the players to do so effectively. He added: “I have always said it is about getting on the front foot, I understand what the fans want. “However, you also have to get a result if you play like that.” No chats with insists: Critics By Lee RydeR Chief Newcastle writer lee.ryder@reachplc.com @lee_ryder Steve Bruce insists club owner Mike Ashley has not been in touch to talk about Newcastle’s winless start, while insisting naysayers will not deter him. the head coach also revealed he will be without Joe Willock and Jamaal Lascelles for today’s clash at Watford as he looks to ease the pressure on himself with a victory. Fans have vented their anger at Bruce during recent games with Manchester United Leeds United after a difficult summer and and poor start to the season. The Chronicle reported this week that Ashley has spoken to club insiders about Bruce’s future but the message was the former Red Devils skipper will be given the chance to turn results around like last season. Bruce said: “I never have dialogue with the owner. “My dialogue and my remit is I would hope the booing would stop if results improve but, as I have said repeatedly, I know I am not going to be everybody’s cup of tea Steve Bruce (right) to deal with Lee Charnley and that is what I do in the running of the club. there is nothing new in that.” the reality is win, lose or draw at Watford Bruce will remain in the hotseat at St James’ Park. Ashley will not make drastic changes unless United became cut adrift at the bottom of the table. Bruce added: “I have had flak since I walked through the door. Unfortunately, it is something all managers have to deal with. “You are judged on results and we do not have enough at the moment.” He added: “I hope we can get a couple of results, which might ease the burden on it. “I would hope the b o o i n g would stop if r e s u l t s improve but, as I have said repeatedly, I know I am not going to be everybody’s cup of tea – I can understand that – but I will be doing the best I possibly can for the club. “I want the club to push on. I will do my utmost with it and get on with it. the criticism does not deter me. “there are a few voices around, unfortunately. “the vast majority I bump into, when I am in and around the city, wish me the best of luck.” With half a dozen squad members unavailable, United are in a difficult position heading into a crucial game. Bruce said: “Joe Willock picked up a training injury this and Jamaal Lascelles hurt his thigh. “ S o they go week on to t h e injured l i s t which makes it about five or six of our first team so not that healthy I have to say. “We are disappointed with Joe’s. His was a complete fluke - he kicked the ground and damaged his toe. “He will not make this week and it is touch and go whether he makes next week Boss: ASM exit does not bear thinking about STEVE Bruce says he does not even want to think about the possibility of losing attacking talisman Allan Saint-Maximin in January. The French winger has made a fantastic start to the season and scored a brilliant goal to earn Newcastle a point against Leeds last Friday night. Having caught the eye for the winless Magpies this season, Saint- Maximin could attract interest from bigger clubs this winter - though Bruce is desperate to keep the tricky attacker. Mike Ashley, however, might have other ideas. The wantaway club owner has been known to sanction big sales in January if the price is right, with key players Andy Carroll and Yohan Cabaye sold in the 2011 and 2014 winter windows respectively. When asked about any plans in place to keep Saint-Maximin, Bruce replied: “I have not even had that conversation – and I don’t want that conversation, as you can imagine. Look, we don’t want to lose our best players. “Allan is staying fit and he has enjoyed it immensely playing down the middle.” Six games into the season, United are in the relegation zone and already out of the League Cup. Given Saint-Maximin said this summer his aims are to take the club into the top 10 and challenge for trophies, the club is not holding up its end. Bruce, though, is pleased with his contributions and said: “I am delighted with him so for now I am not going to have that conversation with anybody. We want to keep our best players.” Another man who could attract interest elsewhere this winter is academy graduate Sean Longstaff. The 23-year-old’s deal expires at the end of the season and Bruce insisted he is not involved in discussions over his future. Former Magpies’ boss Rafa Benitez is believed to be keen to take midfielder Longstaff to Everton, having handed him his Premier League debut in 2018. Bruce said: “Sean is playing very well at the moment. I have been very, very pleased with him. “As far as I am aware, his contract details are for other people to sort out, not me.”

facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2021 The Chronicle 35 Ash as Bruce don’t faze me as well. Jamaal’s is a muscle injury and it happened late on in the game - he tried yesterday but it will be another two weeks for him.” Bruce admitted his squad was already looking wafer thin with just half a dozen games gone. He also has Callum Wilson, Paul Dummett, Freddie Woodman, Martin Dubravka and Jonjo Shelvey missing. He said: “Look, you have a squad of 25 but when six are out it is not that great, is it? “It is how we adapt to it and we get on with it. That is why we have the squad and let’s hope we pick a team to get that right.” Despite the difficulties facing United, Bruce still believes if his side replicate parts of its performance against Leeds it can emerge victorious at Vicarage Road this afternoon. He added: “Everybody wants to get off to a good start. We haven’t. “There have been bits of games where I have been very pleased and I thought we played ever so well for a good hour and a bit at Manchester United. “I thought we played very, very well after the first 20 minutes against Leeds. “I hope we keep those standards and we get a result – and that is what it is all about in the Premier League. You have to find a result which, when you are up against it, is difficult.” NUFC Toon Army’s backing just Wat is needed Steve Bruce believes the 3,000- strong toon Army heading for vicarage Road today can galvanise his players. Newcastle are still looking for their first win of the season, with fan pressure already mounting on the beleaguered head coach. Supporters turned on Bruce in the last away game at Old trafford but did not do so until the chance of a result slipped away - but there were chants against him early on against Leeds at St James’ Park. He said: “the support we have, it makes this club so unique. “to take 3,000 down to Watford is not a surprise to us. “the one thing we cannot do is take them for granted.” Bruce also confirmed goalkeeper Martin Dubravka is still two weeks away from a return. the Slovakian has recovered from a foot injury and is back in training but Karl Darlow will be between the posts today. Bruce said: “We just have to be patient with Martin and see where he is up to.”

facebook.com/NewcastleChronicle SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2021 The Chronicle 3 Hotseat No one really listens to me at home ... I save my talking for going to work Stand-up star Rob Beckett tells Daniellle de Wolfe about his new comedy panel show and his viral Euro 2020 Instagram videos Lockdown has turned comedian Rob Beckett, 35, into something of a Swiss Army knife. First, joining forces with fellow comedian Josh Widdicombe, his hit twice-weekly podcast Rob Beckett and Josh Widdicombe’s Parenting Hell was born. Next he continued to tickle our funny bones with the help of friend and long-time collaborator Romesh Ranganathan on Rob and Romesh Vs – before recently announcing his latest project, Rob Beckett’s Undeniable. The Comedy Central panel show will see him discovering facts that sound almost too absurd to be true. With Google on standby, we find out more about the show – and those viral Euro 2020 Instagram videos, from the Nottingham-born stand-up himself. Can you tell us more about panel show Rob Beckett’s Undeniable? Imagine QI but funny. I’m joking. Well, it’s basically like QI but a bit more chilled, a bit more relaxed. I don’t really know what most of the facts are, we’re learning together. It’s really just great prep for a stag-do that might be low banter, because you can take these facts with you and just dish them out left, right and centre. It feels like being in a pub with your mates on a Saturday afternoon and someone saying something and then calling them out, and then it descends into an argument. Rob hosting his new show Undeniable, and right is one of his celebrity panellists, actor Joe Swash Which topics do you enjoy tackling the most? I know a lot about what I know, which is obviously football and comedy, because that’s what I’m into. So for me it was like going back to school. I didn’t learn anything at school – I just learnt how to avoid a fight. That’s all I learnt. Going to school in south-east London, you don’t learn at school, you survive school. So, for me, I quite like getting those little bits of information. Do you now find yourself throwing out random facts to anyone that will listen? I’ve got a five-year-old and a threeyear-old. Because she’s been to school for a year now, she genuinely thinks she knows everything that’s ever been taught. So, no one really listens to me at home. I save my talking for going to work. You’re back on tour, how has performing live felt after lockdown? [Audiences] do seem way more up for it. I don’t know if I’ve got better or their expectations are lower. So we’ll have to see how this proceeds over the next few months. But it’s lovely just seeing people out... As much as people can watch Rob with Romesh Ranganathan for their Sky One series shows and stream, there’s nothing like the live environment and I think that’s what I try and encapsulate whenever I do a TV show. Improvised or scripted comedy – what is your preference? Some semi-scripted stuff is good, but I like stuff that’s happening and is real – that’s why I love Gogglebox, it’s real. The car scenes in Rob and Ramesh are real. We don’t plan any of that, it’s just us chatting. And in [Undeniable] it’s just happening; there’s not loads of pre-production, I haven’t got loads of pre-prepared jokes. I love real moments... And also, I don’t like working too hard, do you know what I mean? I used to work at a flower market, I don’t want to be mucking about writing things for weeks on end. How did you find lockdown? When you’re from a working class background, you have this poverty mindset where you think money’s a certain amount and the tap can be switched off. So you’re like ‘get it in before I get cancelled’, before they say ‘actually, you’re not that funny’, because I didn’t have much self worth. I just thought I was lucky and it was a hobby that got out of hand. My greatest fear was everything stopping, all work stopping, my tour stopping. And then that sort of happened in lockdown. And actually, out of that came more Rob and Ramesh, the Parenting Hell podcast which is mega. And then I sort of calmed down a bit, just enjoyed myself and I stopped sort of working on fear, and actually started working on what got me into it in the first place which was the joy and the passion of doing it. That’s why I started comedy, I have fun on stage. It feels like being in a pub with your mates on a Saturday afternoon and someone saying something and then calling them out, and then it descends into an argument Rob Beckett on his new show Rob Beckett says stand-up audiences seem to be more “up for it” than they were before the pandemic We have to ask about your Instagram videos during the Euros. Were you having the time of your life? I think I was just enjoying myself... I went to the football and I just got drunk and it was really good for me in a way because I didn’t secondguess what I should be putting out. It wasn’t, ‘Oh my God, I shouldn’t put that, what if someone sees me drunk? I might not get on telly!’. I just stopped running on fear and engaged in the moment which was me at the football. And then I think it struck a chord because it was so honest. We enjoyed the honesty – and the video of you eating chicken... I think sometimes in TV and in the media, everyone’s giving them a version of themselves – and I’d certainly been doing that for 10 years, but I feel like I’ve turned the corner slightly. And I’m now just giving you who I really am, which was on the Instagram video, which actually people preferred than the person I was creating to a point. But the thing is, that is something I do; I will occasionally get smashed and eat chicken on the floor. And I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that – if it’s done sensibly. ■■Rob Beckett’s Undeniable airs on Comedy Central on Wednesday at 9pm

All the recipes have been roadtested by the professionals at Fever- Tree HQ, are super simple and don’t call for lots of obscure ingredients or equipment. It is the ideal book to up your cocktail-making skills before the festive season.

I just thought she was being quirky. But she was, as she most of the time is, 100% right.” The resident food and wine expert on hit Netflix series Queer Eye is keen to point out that his version of the French restaurant’s decadent potato dish is intended as a once in a while treat. “It’s definitely not a symbol for the cookbook in general – I feel like a lot of the recipes are a lot more health-oriented. But, that said, we all experience rainy days, and we all experience really good days where you want to celebrate. And that definitely is a more celebratory dish.” Titled Let’s Do Dinner, the collection of recipes focuses on what the 37-year-old calls “the most important meal of the day” and features lots of brightly coloured salads, veg-packed soups and nutritious Asian-inspired noodle and rice bowls, alongside comforting pasta bakes and juicy burgers, plus a whole chapter dedicated to eggs. “I definitely got into an obsession with eggs,” says Antoni, when considering how his eating habits have changed since the pandemic began. “I used to eat eggs once or twice a week. Now I’m at, like, five or six times a week. I’ve perfected the soft scramble. I used to get it right, like, two out of three times. Now I have 99.9% accuracy, which is really nice.” Aiming to reflect “what my life has been like since Queer Eye came out”, the actor-turnedfoodie, who lives with his boyfriend Kevin Harrington, admits “I actually spend a lot less time in the kitchen than I used to” – or at least he did till the pandemic hit. Filming the latest series of the show with the rest of the Fab Five in Austin when “everything came to a halt”, Antoni decided to stay in the Texan city and foster a dog from a local rescue centre. Four-legged friend Neon, is “a Antoni Porowski has brought out a recipe book I became obsessed by eggs! Queer Eye’s Antoni Porowski tells Katie wright how the pandemic has changed his life... and tastes Ingredients: 150g soba noodles; 3tbsp toasted sesame oil; 3 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled; 2tbsp chopped, peeled fresh ginger; 450g mixed wild mushrooms, stems trimmed, halved; kosher salt; 300g frozen peas, thawed; 150g baby spinach; 75g white miso paste; 1tbsp soy sauce, plus more for serving; 4 spring onions, thinly sliced; red chilli flakes, toasted sesame seeds to serve Method: 1. Cook the noodles in boiling water. Drain in a colander placed over a large bowl. Set aside silly, dumb, lovable rescue”, who became “part of the family” when Antoni discovered you can’t take a foster dog out of state and chose to adopt her before he returned to New York. “I always thought I was going to end up with a corgi, I ended up with a pit bull mix. That’s kind of like a good symbol for life – it’s like that’s what happens when you’re making plans.” As well as acquiring his beloved pooch, the other major benefit of the last 18 months for the indemand food guru has been putting the breaks on his hectic work schedule. MISO NOODLE SOUP WITH MUSHROOMS, PEAS AND GREENS(Serves 4) “I was flying to four different cities in a week, not taking as much time to take care of myself as I would have liked, and then all of that just kind of came to a screeching halt and I was just left with my feelings.” Antoni, who has never shied away from talking about mental health, took the opportunity to “work on myself”, doubling up on virtual therapy sessions each week, a practice he wholeheartedly recommends. “Not to be dramatic, but I couldn’t function without it. I need somebody with an objective standpoint to just sit there and listen and be tough on me when I need [that], and to be gentle and caring when I need that as well. “It’s something that’s been important to me since I was really young, and so I’ll continue talking about it. I hate giving unsolicited advice to people but therapy is my only caveat. That’s where I’m like, ‘No, literally everybody in this in this world could benefit from it’.” More recently, he’s been speaking out about the oppression of LGBTQIA+ communities in Poland by joining forces with the Equaversity Foundation to raise awareness of the issue, and encourage his 4.3m Instagram followers to donate to the cause. “While I have Polish heritage, I don’t know what it’s like to live in Poland, but I feel like I have a voice and I need to use it,” he says. Admitting he doesn’t have all the answers, Antoni witnessed “the power that Queer Eye has had” in the US. He hopes to spread that message internationally. “It’s a learning process for me too. [Previously] I would hear about these things, but I never felt like my voice really mattered. [Now] I think every single person’s voice does. The more I educate myself and the more I feel like I’m part of the process, the more I feel like I’m contributing,” says Antoni. “That’s my goal now.” ■■Let’s Do Dinner by Antoni Porowski, photography by Paul Brissman, is published by Bluebird, priced £22 the soba water.

Add the quinoa along with the bay leaf, simmer for 10 minutes. Drain excess water. Discard bay leaf. 6. Whisk together the apple sauce, vinegar, Dijon, honey, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Whisk in the oil. 7. When the cabbage is ready, sprinkle dried fruit over the top, return pan to the oven for 5 mins. 8. Spoon the quinoa onto plates, arrange cabbage steaks on top. Drizzle with vinaigrette. Add toppings of choice. Ingredients: 225g fresh mozzarella, thinly sliced; 400g tin whole peeled tomatoes, drained; 1tbsp extra virgin olive oi; Kosher salt; 450g white or wholemeal pizza dough, divided in half; plain flour, for dusting; 50g sliced spicy salami, cut into strips; 1 courgette, cut lengthways into thin strips with a vegetable peeler; 55g freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese; 4 large eggs; grated lemon zest, fresh basil, or chilli flakes or black pepper to serve Method: 1. Heat the oven to 260°C, with a rack in the lower third. Press the mozzarella slices between kitchen paper to remove excess moisture. 2. Puree the tomatoes, oil and ¼ tsp of salt in a food processor or blender until smooth. 3.Place a baking sheet in the oven to heat while you prepare the pizza. Cut a piece of baking parchment about 33cm long. Put one piece of dough on the parchment and, with lightly floured hands, stretch it into a rough 4-4.5cm round or oblong. Spoon 75ml of the tomato puree over the dough, leaving a narrow border all around. Arrange half of the salami on top, then top with half of courgettes and half of mozzarella and Parmagiano. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and slide the pizza, still on the parchment, onto it. Return to oven. 4. Bake until the crust is just beginning to turn golden and mozzarella is melted. Crack two of the eggs on top of pizza, season the eggs with salt, and bake until the crust is golden and the egg whites are just set. Prepare a second pizza with the remaining dough and toppings. 5. Remove first pizza from the oven and slide it onto a chopping board. Brush edges of the crust with olive oil. Top with a sprinkling of Parmigiano and grated lemon zest, basil, or red chilli flakes or pepper. Bake the second pizza while you’re enjoying the first.

Other items stylist’s own EMMA JOHNSON london calling for fashion lovers By the time you read this I’ll be living it up in London. Actually I’ll have been there for a few days. By now, I’ll have most likely covered all 540,000 sq ft of Selfridges, spritzed myself in every scent in Harvey Nichols, posed in front of the mirror with half a dozen Chanel bags that I can never afford, bought at least one beauty product I absolutely do not need and splurged a naughty amount on something I might only wear once before selling it on eBay. By the time you get to this paragraph, I’ll likely be deep in buyer’s remorse and prosecco. How much prosecco depends on what time of day you pick up your paper. It’s also odds on that I’ll be nursing a blister or two from traversing the city in inappropriate footwear. But I don’t care, because this time last year the idea of shopping just for the fun of it, without worrying about catching a deadly virus, felt about as likely as an invitation to the Met Gala. As soon as I get the feeling back in my feet I will be jumping on a sweaty Tube train (wearing my mask of course) to ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ at insanely priced dresses on Bond Street. And I am not the only one who has been enjoying the delights of the English capital. After the low-key online presentations and the occasional socially distanced show that was last Lila Moss walks the runway year’s event, the past few days have seen London Fashion Week (LFW) well and truly come back to town. From presenter/models Alexa Chung and Daisy Lowe popping up at Simone Rocha’s 10th anniversary runway show and stylist Katie Grand’s Perfect magazine launch, to rock chick Courtney Love showing off a new cropped hairdo and music icon Grace Jones performing at a fundraiser for NHS Charities Together and Well Child, it was a celeb-filled blast. The LFW fun kicked off on Thursday with a bash at The Style Counsel Emma Raducanu and Dina Asher-Smith Windmill in Soho co-hosted by British Fashion Council CEO Caroline Rush, supermodel Naomi Campbell and British Vogue editor Edward Enninful. Highlights of the days that followed included Rejina Pyo hosting her show at the London Aquatic Centre with Team GB athletes showcasing their skills on the diving boards, Molly Goddard (the designer behind Villanelle’s pink puffball gown in Killing Eve) creating a collection inspired by her own baby dresses, and a surprise film presentation by Victoria Beckham. Proving that she truly is the girl of the moment, on Monday, tennis ace Emma Raducanu was one of the guests of honour at British Vogue and Tiffany & Co.’s annual Fashion and Film party at The Londoner, Leicester Square’s glittering new £500m hotel. Just hours earlier the 18-year-old had been unveiled as the newest ambassador for the iconic jewellery brand. Finally, designer Richard Quinn – the Brit renowned for his floral prints – brought the fashion extravaganza to a close on Tuesday with a show and cocktail party (at The Londoner again) where Kate Moss did the proud mum thing on the front row, clapping and whooping as her teenage daughter Lila followed in her footsteps on the runway. In a week when the headlines were predicting a winter of discontent that could bring everything from power outages to toy and turkey shortages at Christmas, it was nice to think about something frivolous and frothy for a few days at least. That said, as Miranda Priestly pointed out in the movie The Devil Wears Prada, there actually is nothing frivolous about the clothes we wear. The British fashion industry alone was said to be worth more than £60bn in 2020. From London, the circus now rolls on to Italy for Milan Fashion Week. Sadly yours truly will be on the Pendolino train back home by then.

But there’s a third – vines that have decorative leaves and edible fruit. There are two top varieties. Vitis vinifera ‘Purpurea’ has deep red leaves that turn purple in the autumn, matching the bunches of small sweet grapes that ripen at the same time. ‘Brandt’ has green leaves that take on bold orange and red autumn tints from now onwards, with bunches of small, sweet, black grapes. Both of their fruits are tasty and sweet. In a good summer, they will ripen enough to make them enjoyable to eat as a dessert fruit. If summer is a dud, the fruits don’t develop enough sugars, but they are still good for making wine. to do liST ■ Check early varieties of Brussels sprouts and leeks, plus autumn carrots, cauliflowers and calabrese. They should be ready to use from now onwards. ■ Snap yellowing lower leaves from tomato plants to increase air circulation and reduce disease risk. Still feed, but gradually reduce watering now that much of the fruit is picked and nights are cooler. ■ Reduce feeding and watering of tuberous begonias as flowering finishes and the plants prepare for winter rest. Grass lookinG a bit worse for wear after the summer? this simple autumn action plan will return it to its former Glory in no time at all AlAn titChMArsh Gardening Expert BY the end of the summer, the combined effect of children, dogs, garden furniture and outdoor fun and games – not to mention periodic droughts and downpours – means that most family lawns are looking and feeling a tad worse for wear. So treat your grass to an allover programme of autumn care that prepares it for whatever next summer throws at it. Carried out any time between now and mid-October when the ground is moist and growing conditions are good, this simple series of steps brings about slow, gradual improvement over the winter. Mowing Cut the grass once as usual, using the grass box to collect up the clippings. If you use a hover mower, or any kind that doesn’t have a grass box, rake the clippings up afterwards and remove them. Then mow again, at right angles to the previous direction – again picking up the clippings. raking Use a lawn rake with long, springy wire tines or an electric lawn raker with rotating wire teeth to rake the whole lawn hard. Drag out any moss, mat-forming weeds and old trodden-in grass clippings that build up to form an organic underlay, which encourages moss and makes it difficult for rain to penetrate. Repeat this at right angles to the original direction to remove as much waste as possible. Don’t worry if you can see some bare soil between the blades of grass after raking – it shows you’ve done it thoroughly. Feeding Apply an autumn lawn feed evenly all over the lawn, by hand or using a special lawn feed spreader. This formulation is designed to toughen up grass without encouraging strong growth. If you want to cut costs, use blood, fish and bone instead. Apply the feed when the soil is moist and rain is expected within two days, so it’s well watered in. If the weather is dry, delay feeding. Cutting edge: Mow twice, the second time in a different direction rAke on Me: this is one of the simple ways you can help improve your plot over winter Aerating If your lawn is on clay soil or it tends to get badly waterlogged in winter, it needs annual aerating. But any lawn that’s been in place for several years and gets lots of heavy wear benefits from being aerated every autumn to alleviate the natural compaction that results from walking on the grass. Spiking or slashing is the antidote, opening up drainage channels, making it easier for roots Follow Alan’s advice and your lawn will be in top shape next summer and worms to penetrate, and generally improving growing conditions for grass. Use a mechanical or electric spiker or slasher. Alternatively, use an ordinary garden fork and push it into the turf to a depth of three inches every four to six inches all over the surface of the lawn. top dressing After aerating, and while the grass is still short from recent mowing, spread a thin layer (no more than a quarter of an inch) of top dressing evenly all over the surface of the turf, and work it in with the back of a rake or broom. Use gritty sand to top-dress clay soil or ground that waterlogs badly as this improves surface drainage. But use bags of bought topsoil or ready-made turf top dressing for normal or light sandy soil. Regular top-dressing is the only way to improve soil. If the soil is seriously poor, you can top-dress in both spring and autumn for quicker results. You can also use several small regular applications of top dressing to fill in hollows or to help even up bumpy lawns.

10 The Chronicle SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2021 chroniclelive.co.uk Your Home Retro booster CHANGE OF FOCUS: Henry Holland has enjoyed the switch from fashion to homewares As his new homeware collection launches, designer Henry Holland chats to Sam Wylie-Harris about stepping back from fashion and reclaiming your joy Fashion designer Henry Holland is known for his bold designs, slogan T-shirts and quintessentially British clothing brand – so perhaps it’s no surprise the founder of House of Holland is equally at home in the world of interiors. From the catwalk to ceramics, contemporary textiles and soft furnishings, Henry is launching Henry Holland Modern Living, an exciting new homeware collection and collaboration with digital department store, Freemans. It’s a crafted collection of 100 considered and affordable pieces, which stay true to Henry’s design aesthetic and interiors vision, with a nod to iconic designs from the 1970s. “It definitely has a slightly retro feel to it because of my love of modern, mid-century shapes, forms and pieces,” says the Ramsbottomborn designer. “And then we introduced my personal touches of texture and colour to the soft furnishings and some of the printed pieces.” A RANGE OF EMOTIONS “It’s been really lovely to build something that feels cohesive, but also, it’s got some standout individual pieces along with beautiful, forever pieces people can have in their home for many years,” Henry adds. The 38-year-old – who lives with his husband, designer David Hodgson and their French bulldog Peggy in East London – closed the door on his House of Holland label in March 2020. On reflection, he thinks the biggest crossover between fashion and interiors is in the texture and manufacture of the product. “With fashion, it’s very much about how it moves and how it drapes, but with homewares it’s much more about; you know emotions you can create through texture, how it makes you feel and what you get back from a room.” The majority of the range will be available from October, but Henry says there’ll be other pieces coming a little later. “It’s been really nice to work across all the different categories, soft furnishings, furniture, ceramic and glass, lighting and build something that’s a full collection.” ABOVE: Henry Holland Modern Living Shaun Ursa Boucle Chair £249; Minty Henry Floor Lamp Tripod Base - Mint, £99; Hoopla Planters, from £35, Freemans Long Tall Sally Metal 2 Door Highboard, £399 ABOVE: Reclaim Your Joy Framed Poster, £49, Freemans ABOVE: Henry Holland Modern Living The Big Guy Ribbed Coffee Table, £199, Freemans. Living Wobble Glass Vase, Turquoise, £30, Freemans L Modern Living Lady C Lamp with Jiggle Shade, £60 STARS OF THE SHOW Hero pieces include a stunning cream boucle sofa with accent chair. “He’s called Shaun because I think it looks like Shaun the Sheep [from the kids’ TV series],” Henry continues. “I love the glass-fronted cabinet and some of the larger scale things. “Working in 3D with the furniture pieces was amazing for me, I found that really fulfilling and exciting.” POSTER-MODERNISM A number of framed posters feature within the range and give swift insight into the aesthetic behind the collection. “The artwork and prints are definitely something we want to build on,” says Henry. “The ‘Reclaim Your Joy’ is actually something that came from one of my acupuncture appointments. He said, ‘You just want to reclaim your joy’, and I said I couldn’t have put it better myself. “I really like the feeling behind that phrase. It really reflects what people are needing from their home at the moment.” AN ADDED DIMENSION Henry has also launched Henry Holland Studio. Recent projects include a series of beautifully designed ceramic dinner chargers for a private dinner held by Moet & Chandon, as well as a striking collection of rugs in bold, psychedelic patterns for FLOOR-STORY as part of the London Design Festival 2021. “I kind of found it as a creative outlet when I stepped back from fashion,” explains Henry. “I just really fell in love with the process of making things with my hands, and probably the first time in 15 years when I can’t look at my phone for several hours, because I’m so involved. “Working in 3D is a new experience from working in fashion and I’m really enjoying it, and working on more and more of it when I can.” Does he miss the fashion industry? “Yes and no,” he says. “I’ve not turned my back on it, and I’m still working on a few consultancy and fashion projects, but it’s been really nice to have a break. As an industry, it’s all encompassing and the pace at which you’re working is insane, and you don’t realise it’s abnormal until you step back.” “I’m having to put a lid on myself and make sure I’m not giving too much and recreating that same unattainable pace, because it’s almost like I’m preconditioned to work in that way,” Henry reflects. A self-confessed shopaholic, Henry admits it’s wonderful to go to the menswear department and not to be

You go through the rails and you’re constantly feeling all of the fabrics and looking at the trends, and then you start looking at country of origin labels to see where people are making things, and it just ruins the experience. “For a shopaholic, you just want to know if it’s going to fit you and look good for a certain event or whatever, but you’re constantly distracted by how something’s been made, or where it’s been made, so it’s freed me up to really just enjoy being a shopaholic!” HOME COMFORTS Whether it’s fashion or interiors, the LEFT: Henry Holland Modern Living Lie With Me 2 Seat Sofa, £799 BELOW: Living Vista Cushion, £19, Freemans With homewares its much more about; you know emotions you can create through texture... end goal at the end of the week for this power couple is to switch off and unwind. Today, like so many of us, Henry and David – who’s creative director for handbag designer Lulu Guinness – have found refuge within their four walls. “That’s why we’ve got so much into our home and creating a sanctuary for ourselves,” says Henry. “We tend to go 10 to the dozen during the week and then we need to have a space to chill and relax in, where we feel comfortable. So that’s what’s driven a lot of the homewares. “People often ask me, ‘When do you relax?’, and I usually reply, ‘When I’m unconscious!’ When you have a career and a creative brain, it doesn’t ever seem to stop. And I wouldn’t change that for the world, but you’re constantly looking at new things and trying to formulate new ideas in your head of how you would do something differently. “I think that’s the definition of a creative brain,” says Henry. “But sometimes you just need that switch off time when you’re watching c**p TV.” ■■Henry Holland Modern Living for Freemans launches October 4 DIY DONNY Our expert answers your questions QCan I use patination oil to clean old lead flashing? It is in good condition but leaving streaks down my bay window. Rita Whittell AYes. Patination oil should have been applied when the lead flashing was installed so lightly rub with wire wool first before re-applying to stop rain water running over it and down your window. QWhat glue should I use to fix a wooden batten to the wall to hang a curtain pole? Kathy Bisson I don’t think you should rely on glue A only. Back it up with a drywall/hollow wall fixing for plasterboard, or Rawl plugs for a solid wall. For the best adhesive, I recommend Everbuild Stixall from Toolstation at £6.30 for a 290ml tube.. QWe have black mould on the sealant in our shower, but we have mermaid boards not tiles, so can we use bleach on the mould? Janice Headley, by email Mouldy sealant will have to be replaced 01 Caption ABleach will prevent the mould occurring and forming but it won’t remove it once it’s established because the mould grows into the silicon. The only solution is to replace the silicon. To stop mould occurring it’s always best to dry the bathroom after use. How do I remove a stain left on a patio Q from vegetable oil? Aileen M. Gibson An emulsifying degreaser can break A down oil and leave a patio looking as good as new, but it really needs to be applied straight away after the spillage for best results. Once dry and if the oil stain still persists then you should look online at driveway and patio steam cleaners.

Hannah Millington admires the view THere’S good news for Brits itching to take to the slopes – or craving a healthy dose of apres-ski – as resorts in France will be accessible again this 2021/22 season. But as with everything else, it will be a bit different this time. My taster of what the newnormal of chalet holidays will be like begins when I arrive at Geneva Airport, where I’m picked up by our driver renaud from MV Transport. He whisks us across the border to the beautifully crisp and mesmerising Meribel, found in the heart of the 3 Valleys in the French Alps – the world’s largest ski area. Those wanting to stay in their own protective bubble can of course arrange independent car hire or arrive via ferry, rather than being transported around. So, what has changed? Apart from the fact I’m travelling in summer – with the usual snow-capped views replaced by greener terrain – to get a preview, it seems like quite a lot. I’m among the first to experience how Ski France (the UK branch of French hotel group, Madame Vacances) has been preparing for the winter season ahead, with fully vaccinated Brits now permitted to travel to its resorts quarantine free. We arrive at Chalet etienne in the late evening, where we are met not by chalet staff, but by a fully stocked fridge, cool beer, chilled wine, beds neatly made and rooms perfectly organised. Say goodbye to chalet hosts and chefs and hello to their new Contactless Catered Chalets. While the idea sounds tailormade for a pandemic, it was conceived long before Covid-19 arrived. The difficulties of employing english staff in France post-Brexit – coupled with the higher cost of employing French staff – meant it was challenging to keep an attractive price-point for the usual chalet experience, Joanna Laforge, coowner of Ski France and Sales & Marketing Director, explains as we enjoy our new style of dinner on the first night. When Covid-19 emerged, they fully rolled with the ‘contact-free’ concept. Ski France has more than 50 chalets, which are divided into Classic and Premium across various French Alps resorts. The price difference between the two options is around 10/15%, with a week’s stay at our Premium chalet cost- Aquamotion Spa in Meribel HannaH Millington looks at how Meribel is adapting to offer Covid-safe ski trip solutions A nEw amounts of cheese. As the only vegetarian in the group – not the easiest thing to be in France – I tuck into a veggie cannelloni for main. A local delicatessen currently provides the food, but Ski France plans on having its own central kitchen to better cater for veggie, vegan and gluten-free guests. Skis or snowboards will also be reserved at the local hire shop and lift passes will be booked, which will help to avoid queuing. The ‘backstage’ chalet crew will only sweep into the chalet – when guests are out enjoying the slopes – halfway through the week to clean, replenish and re-stock the accommodation. They’ll be at the end of the phone, but ‘contactless’, unless requested otherwise. Our first proper day starts with breakfast in the chalet, then we’re off to experience some bike action in the Alps. Cycling is just one of many activities available in both summer and winter seasons to break up days on the slopes. We meet our guide Alexandre from MCF bike school for adventures on e-mountain fatbikes. After a firm but fair taster lesson – practising emergency brakes and keeping very straight legs – we head off into the dreamy Meribel Valley. Some might say ‘boost mode’ is cheating, but I certainly appreciate how it helps me climb inclines! With resorts filled mostly by the domestic market, Alexandre says there has been a shift to “slightly lesser known activities, such as the fatbike, ski trekking, snow shoes... a different way to enjoy the mountain”. Ski France also turned to the French domestic market to offer its chalets for stays last winter, follow- SLoPE ing from £8,929 for up to 14 people The snug sharing on a Contactless Catered basis. Despite differences among the resorts in prestige, accommodation and food offerings, both Classic and Premium provide local produce and various ingredients for breakfast, afternoon tea/snack, a three-course dinner and drinks each day, with flexibility in each category. Our extra perks include champagne on the first night and The bedroom croissants and coffee delivered every day from the local bakery. Menus and easy-to-follow instructions are laid out, with fresh ingredients pre-delivered and prestocked in the kitchen. ‘Hello Fresh’ hits the slopes, you could say. On our first night, the suggested meal is goat’s cheese and lardon salad with balsamic dressing, salmon en croute with white wine and dill sauce (plus roast new potatoes and broccoli), summer fruit crumble with creme anglaise and after dinner chocolates. We also enjoy copious

Back at the chalet I enjoy some downtime in the wooden sauna, before a dip in the – very powerful - Jacuzzi. I also enjoy taking in the views from the balcony of my large en suite room, filled with the triangular chalet rooftops, tall trees and mountain-peaks – all of which I visualise to be entirely shrouded in snow come December 4 when Meribel officially reopens. My dip into e-transport isn’t over yet, as next we head for e-skateboarding escapades at Lac de Tueda, a beautiful circular lake surrounded by pine trees. I slowly but surely make my way around the breath-taking scenes, clutching a controller that allows me to add power to my skate. “Bend your knees!” my guide from EM Skate shouts after me as I wobble when trying to manoeuvre the thing. On our last day, we enjoy some fun at Aquamotion, nestled in Courchevel.

Whenever we enter a venue or facility, we present our passe sanitaire on the French TousAntiCovid app. Feeling Zen, I snooze as we head down the valley to Chambery in our mini-van. Waking up to Ski France’s very own 14th century Chateau de Candie is not the worst experience. We sample some of the Viognier produced from its own vineyard, from which it makes 2-3000 bottles of Candie 1891 dry white wine a year. After a satisfying three-course meal at the chateau’s La Cantine, I reach the conclusion that French ski resorts are fairly wellprepared for the season ahead.

Easily accessible by car from the Hook of Holland (via ferry from Harwich), the site is located among Friesland’s green meadows, forests, and canals.

14 The Chronicle SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2021 chroniclelive.co.uk TV Highlights It’s not just another drama about a kid that goes missing Motherland’s Anna Maxwell Martin is a parent under pressure in new ITV thriller Hollington Drive... but this time she’s not playing it for laughs. Jane Haase finds out more from the actress and co-star Rachael Stirling We are used to seeing Anna Maxwell Martin as frazzled working mum Julia in hit sitcom Motherland. In ITV’s new four-part series, Hollington Drive, family is still at the heart of the drama but this time events take a much darker turn. Anna plays chaotic Theresa, while Rachael Stirling plays her older, more sensible, headteacher sister Helen. The action begins on a warm, balmy evening, as the pair are enjoying a barbecue with their partners and children. When Theresa’s 10-year-old son Ben asks to play in the nearby park with his cousin Eva, Theresa is plagued by feelings of anxiety. As expected, the children don’t Strictly Come Dancing Tonight, BBC1, 7pm After last week’s launch show the competition begins proper tonight. All 12 couples – including ex-GBBO winner John Whaite (who will make history as one half of Strictly’s first all-male dancing duo with Johannes Radebe), Tokyo 2020 gold medallist Adam Peaty, and the swoonsome Greg Wise (AKA Mr Emma Thompson), will be hitting the famous Strictly dance floor. Nobody will be going home, but the judging panel Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Anton Du Beke will be handing out notes, both good and bad. return on time and Theresa goes looking, finding the youngsters on the edge of a woodland area. They appear to be fighting and her instincts tell her something terrible has happened. Sure enough, later that evening their distraught neighbour Jean (Britannia star Jodie McNee) calls on the family and says her son Alex has gone missing. What has happened to him – and could Ben or Eva be responsible? “On paper this looks like another drama about a kiddie going missing, but it’s not that,” stresses Line of Duty star Anna. “This series is really not about the missing child – that’s just a catalyst to make people turn in on themselves. “The real centrifugal force of the Helen and Theresa with their families in new ITV four-parter Hollington Drive TV PICKS OF THE WEEK Being James Bond Tomorrow, ITV, 10.20pm It’s hard to imagine now, but Daniel Craig received a frosty reception in some quarters when he was unveiled as the successor to Pierce Brosnan’s James Bond in October 2005. The majority of his critics have been well and truly silenced in the intervening 15 years and a total of five outings as the super-spy. As fans eagerly await the latest drama is this hideously co-dependent relationship between Theresa and Helen. It’s very complex and you just can’t really work out what’s going on between them.” Anna, 44, describes Theresa as “a bit of an antihero really”. “She’s often not very likeable and often not a very good parent, she makes lots of terrible decisions,” says Anna. “She’s slightly unhinged and I really liked that, because she’s not a cookie-cutter mother making the right decisions, doing the right thing. She’s very flawed. She doesn’t handle Alex’s disappearance well at all, but she’s not a happy go lucky person before that, she’s dysfunctional and it becomes clear that she’s suffering with trauma.” From the outside, it looks like Theresa and Helen are living the perfect middle-class life. “It’s very much a Stepford Wives idyll at the beginning, this very clean perfection, which of course is not real, it’s a veneer for lots of other things going on with these people,” says Anna. Despite the dark subject matter, she says there were light moments on set. “I always find filming dramas instalment, No Time to Die, they can hear from the man himself. Here, Daniel chats with Bond producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and takes a candid look back at his outings as 007. He shares a few memories about making the films and how it feels to leave Bond behind. Gordon, Gino & Fred Go Greek! Monday, ITV, 9pm This rollicking series, follows Gordon Ramsay, Gino D’Acampo and Fred Sirieix as they team up for an epic adventure and much funnier than doing comedies. “There are some funny characters and some little jokes in Hollington Drive, it’s not all misery – I wouldn’t want to be part of a misery show.” Wild Bill star Rachael and Anna have worked together before on code-breaking drama The Bletchley Circle. “Yes, Anna and I know each other well,” says Rachael, 44, daughter of the late Dame Diana Rigg. “In an age when there’s not often time for lots of rehearsals I looked at this very intense relationship and knew we could evoke it believably on screen, just by virtue of the rustle up some brilliant food from gorgeous Greek islands. They begin in Crete, Greece’s largest island, before heading to Santorini, making their way to the party island of Mykonos and finishing in Athens and the monasteries of Meteora. Gordon, Fred and Gino Jodie McNee as Jean The Great British Bake Off Tuesday, Channel 4, 8pm Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas present as the remaining bakers face crunch time in Biscuit Week. They kick off with fact we know each other so well. “There’s a shorthand so the whole thing becomes more enjoyable.” Rachael describes her character Helen as the sensible, pragmatic, practical one of the family. “You come to learn that her sister, Theresa, has had a chaotic time and she has always been the one who has been a bit out of control,” she says. “Helen has never been out of control in her life, so she has always looked after Theresa and it suits her,” she says. “Helen is now a primary school headteacher and a pillar of the community. their twist on filled brandy snaps for the signature. Next, they produce a jammy childhood favourite in the technical, and in the showstopper they have to create an interactive toy made exclusively from biscuits. Who will crumble under the pressure?
