Briefing Prof Van-Tam yesterday By Martin Bagot Health Editor and PiPPa Crerar Political Editor BORiS Johnson last night begged people to answer the call to get boosters, declaring the vaccine “our best line of defence” against Omicron. All over-18s are to be offered a booster, expanding eligibility from the over-40s, and the gap between the second and third doses will be halved from six to three months. Children aged 12 to 15 will now also be offered second doses, and people with compromised immune systems can get a fourth jab three months after their third. The PM said: “The measures taking effect today are proportionate and responsible, and will buy us time in the face of this new variant. It is more important than ever that people come forward when eligible to get boosted. “Not only will today’s steps help us slow down the variant’s spread, »» All over-18s told to get third vaccine »» 8 more cases of variant found in uK but they will help us protect each other and the gains we have all worked so hard for.” England’s Deputy Chief Medical Officer Professor Jonathan Van-Tam used football to stress the potential impact of Omicron, saying, “We need everyone on the pitch to up their game.” He said: “We started with 11 players in the team with the Wuhan vaccine... picked up a couple of injuries when Alpha came along and then Delta. Omicron is like picking up a couple of yellow cards. We’re starting to feel at risk that we might go down to 10 players.” He said new variants had “always been inevitable”. And added: “It’s always been the case we were PLea Sajid Javid going to get a variant that gives us heightened concern, and we are at that moment with Omicron. It is the new kid on the block for now.” Eight more Omicron cases were detected yesterday, six in Scotland and two in England, adding to three already found in England.

DM1ST mirror.co.uk TUESDAY 30.11.2021 DAILY MIRROR 5 omicron Xmas threat Booster our main form of defence. All adults will now be offered third doses in the original Phase 1 and 2 priority list. Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are also set to adopt the measures. NHS Providers said it would be a “huge logistical challenge to expand and accelerate the programme”. Around 2.5 million boosters a week are being administered and at current rates it would take around three months to jab all those now eligible. The Government said people should wait to be contacted by the NHS. The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation proposals were announced in a live briefing moments before being accepted by Mr Javid in the Commons. JCVI Covid-19 chairman Prof Wei Shen Lim said: “We get the greatest benefit of the vaccine if the vaccine is deployed before the wave starts. We don’t want to wait so long that a wave is upon us.” A sixmonth interval between second and third doses is thought to provide longer lasting immunity, but cases: 10,189,059 (up 42,583) Deaths: 144,810 (up 35) officials insist boosting after three months still provides protection and at the crucial time before Christmas. The jabs for booster doses will be Pfizer and Moderna. Dr June Raine, No10 call not to axe nativity plays By pippa crerar THE Government is asking schools not to cancel nativity plays despite fears over the new Omicron variant. Health Minister Edward Argar said they are “important to young people who’ve had a rough time” during the needle match Woman gets booster jab in London yesterday pandemic. Heads are said to be axing plays or moving them online. Downing Street said it will keep classes open until it had “absolutely no choice” but to close them. Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi added a school shutdown would be the last option in tackling Omicron. He told ITV that people should keep holding festive concerts. He added: “Keep schools open. Do all the things necessary like face masks in communal areas… to protect education in the classroom.” UK latest cover Up Masks are mandatory from today WorlD latest cases: 262,140,100 (up 352,615) Deaths: 5,221,527 (up 4,183) of the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, said: “Our proactive monitoring of the safety of booster doses does not raise new concern.” The two new cases of Omicron in England were in London, in Camden and Wandsworth. Face coverings are mandatory in shops and on public transport in England from today. Health minister Edward Argar said people should “reflect carefully” before going to Christmas parties and “use their judgments” about the risks. Israel and Japan have banned foreigners from entering the countries. There were 35 new Covid deaths recorded yesterday and 42,583 new cases, the seven-day rolling average falling for the third day in a row. martin.bagot@mirror.co.uk @MartinBagot voice of the Mirror: page 8 vital Medic gives vaccine in Botswana Brown on 100million jab waste By Martin Bagot GORDON Brown says 100 million vaccines will be “wasted” by western countries by the end of the year. The former Prime Minister is ambassador for global health financing at the World Health Organisation. “We’ve got to get vaccines out to the rest of the world,” he said. “There are probably 100 million vaccines in the West that will be wasted by the end of the year because they’re not going to be used. “And I think people hate waste and hate the idea that vaccines will pass the expiry date and not be used.” Some 55% of the world’s population has had at least a dose of a Covid-19 vaccine. However in Africa and many countries in the caMpaign Brown developing world vaccine coverage is in the single figures. On the issue of richer nations shipping vaccine “leftovers” close to their expiry date, Mr Brown added: “The better way is to think, look, we’re producing soon two billion vaccines a month across the world. “There’s going to be no difficulty about rich countries being able to get hold of them over the next few months. “If we have excess supply we know we’re not going to use, then we should get them out as quickly as possible.” Reason to ditch cigs FEAR of life-threatening coronavirus symptoms is helping smokers to quit. A study found 44% of smokers think Covid will affect them worse than a non-smoker, as cigarettes inflame and irritate the lungs – the organ the respiratory illness attacks the hardest. Covid has pushed more than half of smokers to consider quitting, the Addictive Behaviour Reports study said. Severe Covid can cause lung failure as fluid leaks from tiny blood vessels in the lungs, filling its air sacs. One in five smokers said they had already tried to quit, while one in 10 said they were preparing to quit. Bizarrely, fear of severe symptoms drove 16% to smoke more, which researchers said may be due to “increased psychological distress”.

DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 30.11.2021 DM1ST 6 gun killer, 14 By MaRTIn fRICkER THIS is the schoolboy who shot dead a 15-year-old outside his family home in an “evil” gun and machete attack. Keon Lincoln was “stabbed and hacked” by a masked gang in January before Yussuf Mustapha, then just 14, shot him twice in a planned “short and brutal” execution in Handsworth, Birmingham. Italian-born Mustapha was found guilty of murder and jailed for a minimum of 16 years. A 16-year-old, who cannot be named, VICTIM Keon, 15 was convicted of murder and sentenced to at least 17 years in prison. Tahjgeem Breakenridge and Michael Ugochukwu, both 18, were jailed for a minimum of 19 years for murder. Kieron Donaldson, 19, was convicted of manslaughter and jailed for 12 years. Keon’s mum Sharmaine Lincoln heard the fatal shots and described her son’s killers as “heartless, evil monsters”. She said: “The gunshots will forever ring in my ears, know ing one of them ended my son’s life.” MURDERER Yussuf Mustapha coronavirus By MaTT RopER WE were all looking forward to a more normal Christmas this year and then along came Omicron. But how concerned should we be about the new coronavirus variant and could it really derail our festive plans? Prof Azeem Majeed, professor of primary care and public health at Imperial College London, has the answers… How worried should we be about the omicron variant? When any new variant of the virus that causes Covid-19 is identified, we don’t at first know how infectious it will be, whether it will cause a more serious illness than other variants and how well vaccines will work against it. We therefore need to be cautious and take measures to control the spread of Omicron until this information becomes available. We shouldn’t, however, become unduly anxious. I’ve heard that the variant causes more mild symptoms. Is that true and if so why are we worried? QA & Some early reports from South Africa suggest that Omicron may cause a milder illness than other variants. However, we will need data from many more people infected with the Omicron variant – particularly older and clinically vulnerable people – before we can reach reliable conclusions about the severity of the illness it causes. Why are they giving more booster jabs if the new variant can evade existing vaccines? Two doses of current vaccines provide good protection – and three doses provides even better protection – against the other strains of coronavirus. At present, we have no evidence the Omicron variant can evade existing vaccines. We need to continue with the booster programme as this has been very effective in keeping down the number of infections that can result in hospital admission or death. Does the new variant transmit any differently? We don’t yet have good data on whether Omicron can infect people more easily than other variants. It will gradually emerge in the coming weeks. Does it mean existing Covid treatments like the new antiviral treatments won’t work either? It is possible that some of the newer antiviral treatments won’t work as well against Omicron as against other variants. However, this will need to be confirmed in research studies. It’s very likely, however, that antiviral treatments will still reduce the severity of illness caused by Omicron. What don’t we know about omicron and when will we know? We currently lack important information about Omicron – such as how infectious it is, whether it causes a more severe illness than other variants, how well vaccines protect against it and whether antiviral drugs will be helpful in reducing the severity of illness it causes. Research is already underway to answer all of these questions. How likely is it to affect Christmas and how? We currently have a high Covid-19 infection rate in the UK. Fortunately, vaccines are keeping down the number of people with a more severe illness, which in turn is keeping the number of hospital admissions and deaths low. If we can get a high uptake of boosters, we should be able to have a more normal Christmas. But everyone should continue with infection control measures and not rely just on vaccination. People who are not vaccinated at all (around 11% of people aged 12 and over in the UK) should also come forward. Will mask wearing really stop it? Masks can reduce the spread of infection – particularly if a higher specification FFP2 mask is worn. But they work best when combined with other infection control measures such as vaccination and home-working. Will bringing forward boosters mean they’re not as efficient? Bringing forward the booster to three months instead of six after people’s second vaccination won’t reduce its effectiveness in preventing serious illness. The booster dose substantially increases people’s immunity and this can help stop the Omicron variant evading our current vaccines. If the time between jabs is now three months, does that mean I’ll soon need a fourth if I had my booster weeks ago? The three month gap is for people who have not yet had a booster. If you have already had your booster, you won’t get a fourth dose (other than for a small proportion of the population with weak immune systems). Those who have not yet had a booster no longer have to wait six months from their second dose and can have this earlier. What will happen in schools? boosT Many schools in Vaccine England have had large dose is Covid-19 outbreaks since prepared the new school year started. It’s important that 12-15 year old children are vaccinated and also get a second vaccination once the Government has approved this. People working in schools also need to be fully vaccinated with three doses ( four doses for people with weak immune systems). Any child who is unwell with possible Covid-19 symptoms should get a PCR test and isolate until the result is back. Improving ventilation and air quality in schools is also essential to reduce the risk of infection. Could there be more travel bans? If the Omicron variant spreads further, then more countries may be placed on the Red List. This can happen at very short notice, leaving travellers with the option of either cutting short their trip or facing an expensive stay in a quarantine hotel. Everyone should consider this if they are planning an overseas trip. features@mirror.co.uk @mattroperbr

All you need to know about latest scare rED ALErt Christmas shoppers in Nottingham where case of Omicron variant has emerged BRAVE FACE Man in mask walks past a nurse mural in Manchester yesterday as we are urged to cover up again Stopping the spread: Rules explained Where will I need to wear a face mask? Face coverings will be mandatory by law in England’s shops, public transport, hairdressers, banks and post offices from 4am on Tuesday. Those who do not comply can be fined £200 for a first offence (£100 if you pay within two weeks), doubling on each repeat offence up to £6,400. Police will be expected to enforce rules. The Government has not published a full list but masks will not be mandatory in pubs and restaurants or cinemas and theatres like they were before. What are the new foreign travel rules? From 4am on Tuesday, all arrivals in the UK from anywhere in the world must take a paid-for PCR test within 48 hours of their arrival and isolate until the result comes back negative. Previously, vaccinated travellers only had to take a lateral flow Day 2 test and did not have to isolate. The new rules apply even to the double-jabbed. Arrivals who land without having booked a Day 2 test in advance can be fined £1,000 on the spot. Arrival from Red List countries must go into hotel quarantine costing £2,285 a head for 11 nights. Those who breach isolation can be fined up to £10,000. When will I have to self-isolate? All close contacts of suspected Omicron cases will have to isolate for 10 days, regardless of their jab status. People who test positive for Covid must still self-isolate for 10 days and unvaccinated or partially vaccinated close contacts of a Covid case must do the same, regardless of which variant they have. What are the rules in schools? The Government is “strongly advising” school pupils above Year 7, staff and visitors to wear masks in communal areas. Local PArtY tIME Xmas drinks public health teams can send groups of pupils home as a last-ditch measure to stop the spread. Can Christmas parties and gatherings go ahead? Yes, there is no legal restriction on Christmas parties. People do not need to wear masks or show a vaccine passport in hospitality venues. Health Minister Edward Argar said people in England can “use their judgment” about whether to attend festive bashes this year. Will the rules be tightened further? It is possible. Boris Johnson has not yet enacted all of England’s Plan B measures, leaving vaccine passports for nightclubs and stadiums in reserve. And people have not been advised to work from home where possible, despite advice of that kind in Scotland. The PM is not planning to adopt Scotland and Wales’ plea for eight days’ isolation for travellers who enter the country, but has not ruled it out. When will they expire? They will expire on December 21 with a review ahead of that meaning they could be strengthened for Christmas. COMPILED BY DAN BLOOM

8 DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 30.11.2021 Voice of the the boost of British.. ACCELERATING booster jabs by offering third doses to all over-18s and halving the gap between vaccines to three months, is a sensible response to the potential threat posed by the Omicron mutation. “Better safe than sorry” is a responsible mantra to protect us while scientists decide how potent and transmissible this variant is. Despite many people feeling safer, the pandemic never ended across the world any more than it did in Britain, where deaths top 1,000 a week and fresh infections average around 40,000 per day. If we are to stop the death toll rocketing or the implementation of draconian restrictions, vaccinations are essential alongside the wearing of masks to suppress the spread of a virus that continues to be lethal. In particular, we owe it to ourselves and others to be jabbed. Unite & fight WITH a flailing Boris Johnson and divided Tories running a tired government, unity and verve are needed for Labour to be in with a decent shout at the next election. Yesterday’s Labour reshuffle started badly with strains publicly exposed again between leader Keir Starmer and deputy Angela Rayner so the fresh team will be under the microscope during the next few weeks and months.

US author christopher Andersen makes the allegations in Brothers And Wives: inside The Private Lives of William, Kate, Harry and Meghan. He writes charles asked camilla, “i wonder what the children will look like?” in november 2017. The book claims she replied “Well, absolutely gorgeous, i’m certain.” Andersen alleges charles then said: “i mean, what do you think their children’s complexion might be?” clarence House rejected the book as “fiction and not worth further comment”.

Island life will go on as normal RUSSELL MYERS ROYAL EDITOR WHen the sun today rises on Barbados, many will wonder if anything has changed at all. Life will continue as normal for the people of this paradise island. Despite no referendum on ditching the Queen, the general feeling is that the Barbadian people had chosen their destiny in electing a liberal party whose manifesto promised a different direction. now perhaps we will see a new dawn across any one of the 15 nations where Her Majesty is a figurehead. The Queen and the Prince of Wales may publicly give their blessings, but there will be a degree of nervousness about such a future for the institution. we can’t forget stain of slavery TRIBUTE Her Majesty Russell myeRs ro yal editor in Bridgetown, Barbados GREETING With president Sandra Mason PRINCE Charles was last night set to acknowledge the barbaric transatlantic slave trade as Barbados celebrated becoming a republic. In a major speech, the Prince of Wales was expected to recognise Britain’s dark past which “forever stains our history”. As the Caribbean nation heralded a new dawn at midnight, replacing the Queen as head of state, Charles said he was touched to be invited despite the act of severance with his family. At National Heroes Square, Charles was due to say: “The creation of this Republic offers a new beginning, but it also marks a point on a continuum – a milestone on the long road you have not only travelled, but which you have built. “From the darkest days of our past, and the appalling atrocity of slavery, which forever stains our history, the people of this island forged their path with extraordinary fortitude. “Emancipation, self-government and Independence were your way-points. Freedom, justice and self-determination have been your guides.” The Queen had been Barbados’s head of state since its independence in 1966, Prince speaks at ‘new dawn’ for Barbados but a debate about becoming a republic has followed at national level since. Supporters said the birth of a republic, exactly 55 years on, unclasps colonial bonds that have been in place since an English ship claimed the tiny, unpopulated island for King James I in 1625. Barbados received 600,000 enslaved Africans between 1627 and 1833, who worked in the sugar plantations and earned fortunes for the English owners. A senior palace source said the Prince was honoured to be involved in the handover and wanted to use the opportunity to “further recognise that the profound injustice of the legacy of the slave trade could never be forgotten”. Charles made similar sentiments on a 2018 visit to Ghana, from where thousands were shipped off to a life of slavery. Britain had been part of the transatlantic slave trade for over 200 years by the time it was abolished in 1807, although full abolition of slavery did not follow for another generation.

The Barbadian government’s decision is likely to spur discussion of similar proposals in other former colonies such as Jamaica, Australia and Canada. Barbadian pop superstar Rihanna was expected to attend the ceremony. Service personnel planned to march past the prince and give a final salute to the monarchy before the Queen’s standard was lowered and the presidential flag raised. Charles was due to receive the Freedom of Barbados and the Queen wrote a message wishing its people “happiness, peace and prosperity”. Referring to her first visit to “your beautiful country” in 1966, she said its people have “held a special place in my heart”, adding: “It is a country rightfully proud of its vibrant culture, its sporting prowess and its natural beauty.” The first president of Barbados is Dame Sandra Mason, the previous governor-general. Prime Minister Boris Johnson said the UK and Barbados will remain “steadfast friends and allies”. russell.myers@mirror.co.uk @rjmyers

Around 66,000 homes in the UK were still without power last night due to the damage valued at up to £300million. And Britain recorded the lowest temperature this autumn at -8.7C, which was even colder than moscow. Engineers working through the night restored electricity to over 200,000 homes across the worst-hit areas of the North East, Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. rod Gardner, Northern Powergrid’s major incident manager, said surveys by a helicopter revealed “extensive damage” to large sections of the network.

Dr Rym Alaoui, 25, needs more than £60,000 of surgery after being doused in sulphuric acid by monster Milad Rouf, 25. He is serving 11 years for attacking her as she answered her front door after their university relationship ended. The young medic was blinded in her right eye and has already undergone surgery seven times. Her sister Alya Alaoui said: “Everyone who knows her knows how genuinely kind, loving and caring she is. “We want to give her every chance to get back to a normal life and continue with her work. “Rym has severe injuries to her face, neck, chest and arms. She’s still unable to see out of her right eye. “Her doctors have said that she’ll need many more over the coming years. The cost is estimated to be over £60,000. “This includes a reconstruction of her neck, specialised laser therapy for scarring and surgical needling.” Lewes crown court heard jAiLed Rouf after arrest &, below, on CCTV in disguise last month how Dr Alaoui dated Rouf briefly while they studied medicine together at Cardiff University. She ended the relationship before graduating and finding work as a junior doctor at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton. Bitter Rouf hatched a cruel revenge plot, which he carried out in May. He used padding, make-up and a mask to disguise himself as a woman before travelling to her home. Rouf then knocked on Dr Alaoui’s door and hurled a soup mug filled with acid into her face. Rouf, of Cardiff, pleaded guilty to throwing the acid with the intent to maim and disfigure. Dr Alaoui’s family hope to raise £60,000 to help pay for the doctor’s future treatment. Alya added: “Her injuries have turned out to be more serious than we expected at the time, and the full treatment unfortunately cannot be offered only by the NHS. “Rym’s modest savings, having been an NHS junior doctor for only 10 months after her graduation, have been depleted.” louie.smith@mirror.co.uk @smith_louie

Maxwell, 59, hugged her defence counsel on the opening day her trial for allegedly recruiting girls for her billionaire ex Epstein from 1994 to 2004. Attorney Lara Pomerantz told a jury: “She preyed on vulnerable young girls, manipulated them and served them up to be sexually abused.

I was. Twelve years old. A child. Not even into her teens, yet another youngster stabbed to death on Britain’s streets. Friends who came to leave flowers and cards in Liverpool on Thursday and Friday described her as “bubbly, loving and caring”. She could have been anyone’s child. It brought to mind the tragedies of Jamie Bulger and Damilola Taylor more than two decades ago. Jodie Chesney, Ayub Hassan and Jaden Moodie two years ago. And so many of the other children whose lives were snuffed out before they’d had a chance to live them. What is the world coming to when any set of circumstances involving kids leaves one of their lives taken by the blade of a knife? How can we stop the hate bubbling in today’s children to such an extent that the most minimal TRAGEDIES Young victims Ava White, Jamie Bulger, Jodie Chesney, Damilola Taylor, Ayub Hassan and Jaden Moodie of slights results in death? And when will this epidemic be brought under control, let alone to an end? No wonder so many of the visitors to Ava’s memorial left so distraught last week. No parent should ever have to bury their child. Any parent can empathise with the devastating blow struck to the heart of her family. According to police reports, she was at a Christmas lights show with her friends on Thursday, when she was assaulted at ‘‘ We’ve become disconnected from humanity needed to keep them alive 8.40pm. Some people will wonder what she was doing out at that time of night. Who cares? Ava didn’t deserve that. She’s now the 40th young person stabbed to death in this calendar year. If the killings continue at the current rate, 2021 will become the deadliest year for youth knife crime in over a decade. We need action. A plan beyond soundbites and political point scoring. The sentence for carrying a knife for anyone aged 18 and over is a maximum of four years in jail and an unlimited fine. For those aged 16 or 17 it is a detention and training order of at least four months. But they’d have to have threatened someone with it, or been a repeat offender. The early warning systems for safeguarding need to be more vigilant. The support networks for schools dealing with problematic children need to be more robust. Our me-first society has become far too disconnected from the humanity needed to intervene in situations that could keep our kids alive. Somehow we need to restore the sense of community, the conscience that once saw kids argue but live to fight another day. We can only pray that Ava’s death doesn’t spark more kids into carrying knives for fear of being attacked themselves. That will only continue the spiral of tragedy and despair.

His calves are colossal.” Kevin is now hoping to release a calendar based on Villa star John McGinn’s bum. MURDER Carole & Causley Carole killer is back in jail after breach By MARTIN FRICKER A MURDERER freed from prison last year despite refusing to say where he hid his wife’s body in 1985 has been recalled to jail. Russell Causley spent 24 years behind bars for killing Carole Packman in Bournemouth. Carole’s family wanted him to stay in jail until he reveals where her body is. Causley, 78, was recalled for a “standard” breach of his licence conditions. No details were revealed but the Parole Board said: “Protecting the public is our number one priority” Neil Gillingham, 31, Carole’s grandson, said: “He is where he belongs.” Carole, 40, disappeared a day after visiting a solicitor to discuss a divorce. Causley owned up while in jail for an insurance scam and got life in 1996. I felt a shove & fell... only person I saw was Barton ACCUSED Joey Barton at the court By LUCY ThoRNToN and DAvE hIggENS Joey Barton pushed a rival football manager into a metal post after becoming “aggressive” during a match, a court heard. The ex-England player, who was in charge of Fleetwood Town at the time, is accused of attacking Barnsley boss Daniel Stendel at the South Yorkshire side’s Oakwell ground. The attack happened in the tunnel after a May 2019 League One match Barnsley won 4-2, Sheffield crown court heard. Giving evidence through an interpreter, German Mr Stendel said Barton, 39, had appeared “annoyed and aggressive” and Rival manager on ‘assault’ “had a go” at him after Barnsley scored in the first half.

The schoolgirl suffered “catastrophic injuries” when she was stabbed after a Christmas lights switch-on in Liverpool. The boy appeared at the city’s magistrates court, sitting as a youth court, yesterday accused of murder and possession of a bladed article. He cannot be named for legal reasons and wore a grey tracksuit as he sat in the dock with two security officers for the five-minute hearing. District Judge Wendy Lloyd said the accused would appear at Liverpool’s crown court tomorrow. She added: “Between now and then you are going to be kept in secure accommodation.” Three other boys, aged between 13 and 15, were also arrested and have been conditionally bailed as investigations continue. Ava, who has been described as “popular” and “bright”, was involved in a row which escalated into an “assault on her with a knife”, police said. She had been out with friends when she was attacked in the city centre at around 8.40pm on Thursday. Flowers and balloons have been laid on Church Street, near where she was stabbed. Police said the offenders ran off up School Lane, across Hanover Street and into Fleet Street after the incident. Ava was taken to Alder Hey Children’s Hospital but died a short time later. Detectives have urged people not to post names or comments on social media and for anyone with footage of the attack or aftermath to contact them. mirrornews@mirror.co.uk @DailyMirror Visit mirror.co.uk/bfcomp and answer the following question to enter: Which American Holiday is Black Friday originally associated with? a) Halloween B) Labour Day c) Thanksgiving Terms and Conditions: Competition closes at 5pm on Friday December 3, 2021.

At her heaviest she weighed 17st 11.5lb, but now she is just 9st.

Usecode:MIRROR10 baa-by it’s cold outside Festive treat by Nicola MethveN TV Editor THE BBC has given Shaun the Sheep a starring role in its festive schedule after deciding... all I want for Christmas is ewe. Three shorts featuring Shaun and his friends, including little Timmy, Shirley, and the dog Bitzer, will be shown between programmes in December. There is plenty of slapstick humour as Shaun and his pals put up a tree, squashing poor Shirley in the process, and then decorate it using Timmy’s special tree-turning machine. The clips are a taster for the half-hour Shaun the Sheep: The Flight Before Christmas, a mischief-filled family film likely to be shown on Christmas Day. It is the first time Aardman Animation has been asked to provide the BBC’s festive shorts since 2008, when Wallace and Gromit starred to tie in with A Matter of Loaf and Death, which was broadcast on Christmas Day. Aardman director Steve Harding-Hill said: “It feels like a bit of a Shaun takeover on the BBC, which is nice for us. You’ll see Shaun on the ‘idents’ and then, when you see the trailer for the film, there will be a connection. “The brief was to try to create an understated, simple theme – it couldn’t be too crazy or have too much story and had to be quite natural. But they did want them to feel lovely and atmospheric and Christmassy.” BBC content boss Charlotte Moore said: “Nothing brings audiences together like Christmas on the BBC, and the star at the heart of our festive family offering is everyone’s favourite animated animal, Shaun the Sheep.” nicola.methven@mirror.co.uk @mirrormeths Shopthehighstreetonlineat: downyourhighstreet.co.uk/mirror jiNgle bell flock Shaun & the gang in Beeb clip

So how do you make sure yuletide doesn’t become a pain in the neck – or back, shoulders and legs, for that matter – by the time December 25 comes around? How to… carry heavy shopping “Lugging heavy bags around for long periods is a surefire recipe for a strained and aching neck and shoulders,” says physiotherapist Nell Mead (nellmead.com). “Minimise the strain on your body by carrying your shopping as close to your body as possible and making sure the weight you’re carrying is evenly distributed between hands. “Think about using your core as you walk, rather than taking all the strain through your shoulders. A well-fitting backpack worn on both shoulders is a great idea. Or best of all, use a trolley, as (depending on the terrain) it usually takes less effort to push or pull your shopping than it does to carry it.” How to… write cards “Before tackling your heap of cards, take a tip from professional draughtsmen and architects,” suggests Nell. “They avoid repetitive strain injury (RSI) by making sure their desk is at the right height to enable them to write while keeping their shoulders relaxed. They often use tilted desks or writing slopes.” Writing slopes are readily available online for about £20 and using one means you don’t have to drop your head too far down in order to read what you’re writing and this results in less neck and eye strain. “Slopes also promote a good position for wrist flexion, one of the major movements involved in handwriting,” she adds. “It’s also important to pace yourself and take regular breaks – every 20 minutes, take a few minutes to stretch out your neck and shoulders and ease your eyes by staring into the distance for 20 seconds.” How to… decorate the tree, pain-free “If you’re not particularly limber and flexible, then spending a couple of hours bending over or reaching out to decorate your Christmas tree could see your strain your muscles,” says Dr Esther Fox, chartered physiotherapist and pilates teacher (thepilatesdoctor.co.uk). “Move into positions Is you body fit for Chris that mean you don’t have to overly bend or stretch to decorate. For example, go on to your hands and knees or even lie on your tummy to hang baubles on the bottom of the tree. If you need to use a stepladder or chair to reach the top of the tree, be sure to stand it on a level surface and always have someone at the bottom to hold it steady.” How to… wrap presents “The key to minimising the strain on your upper body while you wrap presents is to try to keep your head stacked vertically over your rib cage, and your shoulders relaxed,” says Nell. “The ‘‘ When it’s chilly we ho ourselves stiffly, so muscles are less flexible you ca How at p Peopl is a co witho “Sta balan knees pelvis “Th dance guard

But be extra careful in icy weather or when walking on wet leaves. “I see too many sprained ankles and bumped knees – even fractured hips and wrists – in patients who’ve fallen on treacherous ground,” says Nell. “It’s important to prepare for winter walking by investing in a pair of supportive and comfortable boots or shoes which have good grip. “You can reduce risks even further by training your strength and balance: practise balancing by standing on one foot as you clean your teeth, and you can work on your strength with squats and lunges.” Taking smaller steps and walking with your feet slightly wider apart also helps keep your body balanced over your base of support, which decreases your risk of falling, adds Nell. tmas? easiest way to do this is to make sure the surface you’re wrapping presents on is about the same height as ld your elbows – which isn’t usually the height of your dining table. “An ironing board is a great option because it’s adjustable. So whether you’re sitting or standing, n get it to elbow height.” to… stand arties e are often surprised to hear there rrect way to stand for a long time ut harming your hips and back. ck your body so it’s properly ced – knees over ankles, hips over , pelvis over hips, rib cage over , head over rib cage,” says Nell. ink about the poise of a ballet r rather than the rigidity of a sman. The more balanced your posture, the less muscle work it takes to hold yourself upright, so the less tiring and uncomfortable it will be.” Wear comfy shoes and prepare for periods of standing by working on your core and buttock muscles at the gym or at home. Try lunges, squats and bridges. “When your abs and glutes are strong, they can hold you upright much more efficiently and for longer,” explains Nell. How to… warm up for ice skating “In cold weather, you need to prepare your body for exercise a little bit more than you do when it’s warm” says Nell. “When it’s chilly, our brains direct heat to our key organs, like the heart and brain, and we tend to hold ourselves more stiffly. All of this means our muscles tend to be cooler and less flexible. “So before you step out on the ice, make sure your muscles are warm. This will also prevent injury if you do fall. Try fast walking or jogging and then some light stretching. And take it gently to start with before trying any tricks.” How to… sit at the panto Sitting still for two hours in a not-so-comfy seat can lead to back pain and all sorts of muscular aches. But in reality, there’s no “correct” way to sit, says Esther. “There’s no such thing as bad sitting posture – it’s sustained sitting posture that’s the problem,” she explains. “Our bodies are not designed to sit still, in one set position, for more than about 20 minutes at a time. So the key to keeping your aches and pains at bay is movement. So be sure to keep shifting position through the panto and definitely stand or take a walk during the interval.” How to... keep supple when carol singing It’s common to get a stiff neck in cold weather, so keep yours well and truly wrapped up if you’re heading out into a wintry night for a prolonged period. “Muscles are like plasticine – when they’re cold, they’re hard and more brittle, then as they warm up they become more flexible, and that will make them feel more comfortable,” says Esther. How to… take the turkey out without trouble Heaving out heavy roasting tins from a low oven can hurt your back if you don’t use the correct heavy lifting technique. “Ideally, get someone to help you lift the tray out of the oven, but if you have to do it alone, then be sure to bend at the knees as you lift,” says Esther. “Keep it as close to your body as you can, without letting it touch you and while avoiding the spitting fat, of course. Wear gloves and an apron for extra protection.” How to... sit down on the floor to play board games “Most of us spend very little time sitting on the floor and as a result, it can be a pretty uncomfortable experience, especially as we get older and our hips, backs and hamstrings get stiffer,” says Nell. “Tricks to minimise the discomfort include resting your back against something solid so that you’re well supported (a wall or a sofa are fine). “Also, try to sit on a cushion or something like a yoga or meditation stool rather than straight on the floor. “This is not only more comfortable on your bottom, but also raises you slightly, taking the pressure off your hips and hamstrings and making it easier to get up once the game is over. “You can also prepare your body by stretching your hamstrings and lower back before you sit, and taking regular stretching breaks during the game, too.” Words KIM JONES

28 DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 30.11.2021 DM1ST HEALTH Kidney stones can be excruciatingly painful and cases are on the increase, discovers Michele O’Connor Kidney stones are more common than people think – and can bring pain like you’ve never experienced before. “They start as crystals in the urine which, over time, can build up to form a stone,” says Fadi Housami, urologist and lead stone surgeon at Aintree University Hospital and The Sefton Suite private hospital. Kidney stones come in a variety of sizes, shapes and colours. Some are like grains of sand but others can grow to the size of a golf ball. While a family history of stones and pre-existing conditions, such as diabetes, makes people more prone to developing them, cases are rising. Data suggests an increase from 10 to 14 per cent – which means one in seven people will require hospital admission or treatment. Why are rates rising? “A combination of obesity, poor hydration, high blood pressure and a lack of exercise have led to a surge,” says professor of urology Bhaskar Somani, at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust. Be kind to your kidneys They are primarily found in developed countries, probably because diets are rich in saturated fat, animal protein, sugar and salt, which increase the risk of crystals forming. It is exacerbated by not drinking enough water – and too much caffeine and alcohol. “Crystals are more likely to form in concentrated urine due to reduced fluid intake,” explains Mr Housami. Inactivity also plays a part. “A sedentary lifestyle means that crystals are less likely to move and pass spontaneously.” What’s more, patients who have already had a stone have a 50 per cent chance of another one within 10 years. Signs and symptoms “Some patients with kidney stones have no symptoms at all and stones may be found incidentally on a scan performed for other reasons,” explains Mr Housami. However, patients typically experience discomfort in the flank (the area either side of the lower back), a burning pain when passing urine and blood in the urine. If a stone moves from the kidney to the ureter (the tube that connects the kidney to the bladder), it can cause waves of excruciating pain, known as renal colic, in the back, abdomen, groin and/or genitals. Treatment “Treatment options depend on the symptoms, location, size and density of the stone, as well as the potential risk to the kidney,” explains Mr Housami. There’s every chance a tiny stone will pass in urine on its own, although pain relief may be required. Slightly larger stones require medical intervention. Methods include external shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), which involves using sound wave vibrations to break up the stones; sending a scope up the urinary tract (ureteroscopy) to break up the stone using a laser, or surgically removing the stone through an incision made in the back. Prevention is better than cure Drink more water: Aim for two to 2.5 litres continuously throughout the day, rather than going from periods of dehydration to drinking lots in one go. If you get stones regularly, fresh lemon or orange juice can increase citrate and alkaline levels in the urine, which could prevent certain types forming. Keep an eye on the colour of your urine It should be reasonably dilute – light yellow in colour. Certain foods and drinks can increase your risk Sugary drinks contain large amounts of fructose corn syrup which has a strong association with kidney stones formed from calcium oxalate – the most common kind. High-oxalate foods include beetroot, spinach, Swiss chard and rhubarb. Reduce salt and avoid high-protein diets. Maintain a healthy weight Obesity doubles the risk of kidney stones in women and increases it by 30 per cent for men. Get five-a-day, and drink milk There’s evidence that the potassium in fruit and vegetables and dairy products lower the risk of stones. ONLY £129.99 BUY NOW!

I feel liberated The rugby legend tells Lizzie Catt about his new campaign to tackle the HIV stigma When retired rugby ace Gareth Thomas completed a gruelling Ironman triathlon the day after announcing he was living with HIV in 2019, the message was loud and clear: people with HIV are capable of extraordinary things. “For me,” Gareth says, “doing the Ironman was bigger than a physical challenge.” But the lead-up to this astonishing show of strength had involved years of mental anguish. After receiving his diagnosis during a routine health screening, the former Welsh rugby captain had been plunged into despair, considering suicide and feeling tormented by the effect the news would have on his family. Guided by NHS staff, Gareth, now 47, learned life with HIV has changed immeasurably since the terrifying days of the 1980s. The Terrence Higgins Trust reports modern anti-retroviral treatment means very few people in the UK develop serious HIV-related illnesses and can expect to live as long as anyone else. Studies have also shown a person on effective treatment can’t pass on HIV. Gareth is one of them, and now he has become vocal about ending the stigma – leading the cam- paign Tackle HIV in partner- ship with ViiV Healthcare and the Terrence Higgins Trust. The stigma was something he had internalised while growing up in Bridgend . “I was a product of my surroundings – there was nothing wrong with any of it, but we didn’t have the information,” he says. “It was very much this horrible, dirty thing we never spoke about. So when I was told I had it, I thought what a lot of people think: that it’s the beginning of the end of your life.” When he came out as gay in 2009, Gareth says, he felt he could make his family proud. But announcing his HIV status was different. “I felt like I would leave them to have to deal with the consequences because I didn’t know how long I would be living. “I felt the discrimination would affect my parents. They were the proud mum and dad of the rugby player who represented his country and did what he could for the LGBT community. Then it would all be wiped away when he contracted HIV DETERMINED He battled back from mental anguish and aims to help others wORLD CLASS Gareth reached the pinnacle of his sport and captained wales and died, and left his family to deal with it... I was trying to comprehend how I could put this on the doorstep of everyone I loved and cared for.” Convinced he could pass on HIV to his loved ones, it took months before Gareth even had the confidence to go out for dinner with his friends or hug his niece. “I was absolutely petrified. I thought HIV or AIDS would be transmitted in the simplest way, like I saw on TV 30 years ago.” Sensing he wasn’t coping, the hospital kept a close eye on him. He initially thought their reassurances were platitudes to make him feel better. “I only started to believe what they were saying when I scientifically started to understand more about HIV.” He began to realise a diagnosis can have a positive impact on life, with many people getting fitter than they’ve ever been. “You have a light bulb moment where you understand the preciousness of life. You want to do everything you can, as well as taking that tablet every day, to feel fit and healthy.” Yet stigma still lingers, along with homophobia. “Discrimination isn’t as ‘‘ I thought what a lot think. That HIV was the beginning of the end of life obvious or as regular as it used to be, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.” Some people get up and very obviously leave a place when Gareth and his husband Stephen Williams- Thomas walk in. “Or – and this is a regular occurrence – somebody pats my husband on the back and says to him, ‘you know, you’re a good man’. “It’s like, ‘good man, because you’ve taken on this half-broken person who has a virus.” In spite of this, Gareth says: “Right now, I’m in the best place I’ve ever been. I feel a sense of liberation. I have nothing to hide. “Sometimes the interest can feel intrusive, but I have ways of dealing with it and ways of being able to speak LIBERATED Gareth with husband Stephen to other people about it, which I never had before.” He’s found an unusual coping method. “This might sound bizarre, but the best thing for me is swimming in the sea.” He says it’s “exhilarating” and keeps him in the present, rather than fixating on the past or worrying about the future. “I don’t live in Miami, I live in Ogmore-by-Sea near Bridgend and it’s not the most tropical place in the world, but I’m blessed to live here.” Just like the confident face he put on when announcing his HIV status though, getting to the point where he could swim in the sea involved a lot of behind-the-scenes work from Gareth, aided by his friend and swimming teacher Dave Tongue. “I couldn’t swim a couple of years ago, but I really wanted to do the Ironman – I had panic attacks, I was crying, I was so afraid of the sea. “Dave would say to me, ‘remember why you’re doing this’. There was the message I wanted everybody else to see, but I was thinking, ‘you’re still not quite sure of what somebody with HIV is capable of because you’ve never really pushed yourself ’. It was me, willing me to show myself how far I’d come.” ■Tackle ■ HIV is led by Gareth in partnership with ViiV Healthcare, a company dedicated to treatment and research, and the Terrence Higgins Trust.

Lockdown caused a surge in unplanned pregnancies Now here’s a surprising one. I’d have thought unplanned pregnancies would’ve fallen during lockdown with all that worry, anxiety and frustration. But I’d have been wrong. There were nearly twice as many unplanned pregnancies during the first lockdown compared to before, according to a study led by researchers at University College London Hospital who analysed data from 9,784 women. Of those, 4,114 conceived prelockdown and 5,670 conceived postlockdown. What could account for the higher post-lockdown figure? Believe it or not it was something as simple as not being able to get hold of contraceptives. Overall, the research team found women were nine times more likely to have difficulties getting contraception during the first lockdown leading to a near doubling in unplanned pregnancies from 1.3% pre-lockdown to 2.1%, although researchers believe this figure is an underestimate. The proportion of women reporting difficulties getting contraception rose from 0.6% pre-lockdown to 6.5%. Senior author Dr Jennifer Hall, of the UCL Institute for Women’s Health, said: “During the Covid-19 pandemic we found that despite the introduction of new policies and practices by contraception and abortion service providers during the first lockdown, women continued to report ongoing difficulties in accessing contraception leading to a significant rise in the proportion of unplanned pregnancies.” ‘‘ Difficulty in getting access to contraception was a big factor First author, Dr Neerujah Balachandren, of the Reproductive Medicine Unit at UCLH, added: “Prior research has pointed to several factors which may explain why it was harder to access contraception during the Covid-19 pandemic. “These include a lack of clarity about the legitimacy of trying to access sexual and reproductive health services during a pandemic, uncertainty about which services are still available, limited GP appointments, challenges to contraceptive prescribing and closure of usual points of access to free condoms within community settings.” Women were so badly served in this area it’s a scandal. The overall annual cost of unplanned pregnancies in England was estimated to be £193million back in 2010 and a rise in unplanned pregnancies will inevitably increase pressures on already stretched abortion and maternity services. In addition, data released last month shows there were 210,860 abortions in England and Wales in 2020, the highest since records began. Sure, there’s a financial cost to unplanned pregnancies but unplanned births also produce a negative social and economic fallout. While the official date of the first UK lockdown was March 23, the study authors used April 1 to ensure that those being surveyed in the post-lock- down group would have faced restrictions during the month that they conceived. good newS Covid vaccines stop Delta deaths A Scottish study of the Delta variant has found Covid vaccination is 90% effective in preventing deaths.

DM1ST 32 DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 30.11.2021 DEAR COLEEN dearcoleen@mirror.co.uk your problems solved vile motherin-law makes my life hell Dear Coleen I’m really struggling not to fall out with my mother-in-law and need some urgent advice. I’m usually a very laidback person, but this woman triggers me like no one else, and every time I see her or speak to her, I come away raging. My husband and I had a baby boy a few months ago and since then my mother-in-law has gone into overdrive. She’s incredibly blunt – she told me outright that it’s a bad decision not to have him christened, she told me she didn’t like his name and she criticises every decision I make. She even said: “I know better than you – I’ve brought up three wonderful children” and smiled menacingly as she said it. I’m at the end of my tether. Advice please! Coleen says Wow, it sounds like you have your work cut out. OK, I’m going to say something you won’t like, but I’d kill her with kindness. I think things will be worse if you’re not talking and the whole family gets involved, your hubby isn’t seeing his mum and your son isn’t seeing his grandparents. But here’s the thing, you don’t have to do anything she’s telling you to do. Saying something like, “Well, you might be right, but I have to learn my own way” basically translates as “Back off, lady”, but in a nice way. And just stay strong – do things your way and don’t row with her. At the end of the day, if she keeps going, she’ll make herself look silly and other people won’t like it. She might calm down eventually, especially if this is her first grandchild. Wife’s gone ballistic over my liaisons with female work pal Dear Coleen I’m a man in my 30s and have recently fallen out with my wife over my friendship with a single female colleague. We’re not having an affair, but we do text each other about stuff unrelated to work and when we are at the office we often have lunch together or a drink after work. My wife says I have to stop all contact with her unless it’s directly related to work – no texts, no lunches, no drinks – which I think is really unreasonable. We had a huge argument over it the other night and haven’t spoken much to each other since. I’ve tried to explain that we’re just friends, but she keeps saying, “Well, that’s not what it looks like from where I’m standing”. I think it’s a massive overreaction and I also feel angry that she’s trying to dictate who I can and can’t be friends with. I’ve never cheated on her – I’m just not that kind of guy. We’ve been talking about starting a family recently, but I feel so far apart from her right now that I think it would be mad to have a baby. you say “It’s not an affair but we often have lunch together I had to comment on the letter from the 21-year-old girl whose mum is manipulative (Dear Coleen, Nov 18). I also lived at home at your age as a student in the late 80s, and had no friends for eight years due to my strict upbringing by my dad. I think you should move out, even if it means working to pay rent for a hall of residence at university. In the meantime, log out of your email when you’ve finished looking at it, lock your room and for heaven’s sake, hoover your own bedroom at 21! When I moved out of my family home after graduation, my relationships with my parents greatly improved. Clare, via email PROBLEMS? Tell Coleen Nolan about them and she’ll give you an honest answer... every weekday in the Daily Mirror email: dearcoleen@mirror.co.uk – sorry, but Coleen can’t reply personally WRiTe To: Coleen Nolan, The Daily Mirror, One Canada Square, London E14 5AP just started dating and i’m pregnant Dear Coleen I’m a woman aged 32, I’m in a very new relationship and I’m pregnant. I don’t know what to do because although I really like this guy, I don’t really know him that well. At the same time, I want to keep this baby because I’m 32, I’ve been single for a while and don’t want to miss my chance to be a mum. I haven’t even told him yet and have no idea how he’ll react. Any words of wisdom would be very much appreciated. Coleen says If you’ve made the decision to keep the child, then you’ll just have to deal with whatever his reaction is and be prepared that you might be raising the baby alone. It’s your body and your decision. If the relationship ends, he may still want to be part of the child’s life, so you have to think about how you’ll cope with that. But if you’re 100% sure you want to keep the baby, then it’s just a case of facing all these challenges along the way. A friend of mine was in the same situation, the relationship Coleen says Well, I agree with putting the baby plans on ice until you’ve worked this out. Look, I can see your side of things, however, who do you want to please more? Who are you scared of losing more – your friend or your wife? You might not be having an affair, but this friendship has already had a negative effect on your marriage – you’ve fallen out with your wife over it. And I think the way you’ve reacted is going to make her think there’s more to this friendship than meets the eye. Maybe if you’d said, “She’s just a friend, but if this friendship is hurting you, then I’ll stop it now”, that might have been enough to reassure your wife. But the fact you’re digging your heels in and rowing with her over it is a worry. So the question is: Do you like this other woman so much that you’re prepared to risk your marriage for her? Or do you have deeper feelings for her? Personally, I don’t think it’s worth risking your marriage. Also, put yourself in your wife’s shoes – if she was seeing another guy all the time, texting him and drinking with him, how would you feel? Oh, and why don’t you meet your wife for lunch instead? didn’t work out, but she never looked back and is a wonderful mum. I can’t say it hasn’t been hard at times, both financially and practically, but she wouldn’t change her decision. Also, just a word of caution. If you decide to keep dating, don’t rush into moving in together or doing anything crazy like getting married. Take it slowly and give things a chance to grow. Sign up to my newsletter!

DM1ST mirror.co.uk TUESDAY 30.11.2021 DAILY MIRROR 33 Let’s your do this community together corner Edited by siobhanmcnally The snow started falling just as we’d sat down to eat the results of my bonding session with the goddaughter on Sunday evening. Saying that, the beef, green bean and cashew nut noodle dish turned out to be just beef and random vegetable stir-fry as I’d forgotten to add cashew nuts to the shopping list, along with the green beans and egg noodles. But other than that, it was perfect. It was also great to spend time with Molly because you mostly ignore godchildren when they’re little and just send unsuitable presents, like indoor fireworks or terrapin aquariums. And then one day, they’re taller than you and expecting you to get a round in at the pub. Turns out Mols is funny, clever and self-effacing, and also very polite as she ate all the food I’d cooked without complaining, especially as we spent most of the meal sitting in thick black smoke. That’s because nobody could accuse me of not being original in my birthday presents for Molly this year. I bought her a wok and when she arrived, even scrubbed the lacquer off and seasoned it. This meant for most of the evening, the fire alarm kept going off as I blackened the pan, and we had to shout over the roar of the extractor fan. Then as we sat down to eat and chat, while Molly picked the odd unidentified item out of her bowl, I noticed that strange muffled sound you get when snow falls and it coats everything in a silent, white dusting. We looked out the windows, squealed and ran to the front door like big kids. My neighbours were doing the exact same thing at that moment, and dad David, who lives to the right of me, called across: “Er… are you on fire? There seems to be smoke billowing out of your door.” I like to think Molly will always remember her 17th birthday with me, but it will probably be for all the wrong reasons. ■ ■ Did you get snow yesterday?

Email siobhan.mcnally@mirror.co.uk Plastic toys in your cereal box are a thing of the past now, but as reader John Shale in Wigan points out, they brightened up a dull post-war childhood. He says: “In the 1950s, plastic was an exciting and colourful addition to our daily palette of drab greens, browns and navy blue. I remember collecting a plastic submarine and a rocket launcher from Kellogg’s Corn Flakes packets. “You could put the submarine inside a screw-top bottle filled with water, and when the top was tightened, the sub sank and, when loosened, it floated up again. “While the rocket was simply a hollow missile placed on a spring loaded launcher, which would be fired a couple of metres when the trigger was released.” Reader William Ellison, in Guernsey, was more eclectic in his collections. He says: “I thought of the day It’s fascinating to think how each snowflake is completely individual – there are millions and millions of them, but each one is unique.

Perhaps the answer lies in his cavalier attitude and disrespect for those around him, including choosing not to wear one at a performance of Macbeth, sitting next to Sir David Attenborough at COP26, during a visit to Hexham hospital and on a recent train trip. He thrives on self-publicity, even when bad. How long will it be before he is seen without a mask? I also wonder when the likes of Jacob Rees-Mogg will put one on when in Parliament. Leading by example during a time of shockingly high Covid deaths is something the PM clearly has not understood and nor do some of his Cabinet and MPs. Mark Iles, Newark, Notts ■ Hopefully Omicron doesn’t turn out to be a variant of too much concern. But what is a concern is the Government’s continued shambolic handling of the pandemic. What about making masks compulsory in restaurants, cinemas, theatres and sport stadiums? Masks and showing a vaccine passport to enter all indoor venues and large outdoor events should have been made mandatory when we opened up last summer. When I’m in a shop or travelling by train or Underground, I’m usually one of the few with a mask. Our PM Yes. I’m rather glad she has gone but how the heck is Dan avoiding the dance-off every week? goonagaL No. As much as I like Dan Walker, he definitely should have gone home, not Tilly Ramsay. ann PeaCe To have your say, go to mirror.co.uk Masks too little too late in fight tHe BIG issue From today, face coverings will become mandatory again in shops and on public transport in England in a bid to tackle the spread of the new Omicron variant of Covid-19. But Health Secretary Sajid Javid has dismissed calls for the rule to be extended to pubs and restaurants or for people to work from home where possible. You say... was even on a busy train without one. Hardly setting an example. Stephen Collins, Waterlooville, Hants ■ Boris Johnson is the banana skin that keeps on giving. The maskless hospital visitor is now telling the public to mask up. This staunch member of the “don’t do as I do” club should leave the stage to the scientists because he’s the manifestation of dangerous distrust in politicians. I know fruitcake has a very long shelf-life but he is well past his sell-by-date. Collin Rossini, Dovercourt, Essex ■ So Omicron has arrived and instead of taking action such as stopping flights immediately, the measures fall short again. This Tory government has a proven record of being late taking action with Covid. Seems they are waiting until the NHS is at breaking point. G Hunt, Derby ■ The clown charged with running the country has finally decided to make face masks mandatory. This should have been done weeks ago. Attendance at sporting events should also be restricted. When will people wake up to this shambles of a government? John Lee, Liverpool ■ Savid Javid has declared face coverings aren’t necessary in restaurants but they are in shops. He asserts if people who can work from home do so, it’ll damage the economy, despite the fact this is happening in Wales and Scotland. The Government has messed up dealing with Covid and I’ve 145,000 plus reasons for thinking that. Sajid Javid is continuing the trend. Derek McMillan Durrington, West Sussex ■ I wonder if our PM and members of his Cabinet who think they are above the rules will obey the latest restrictions? No wonder mask wearing has largely been abandoned by the public in England in the last few months. C Kemp, Basingstoke, Hants i’m a celeb’s lost its mojo TV bosses should just pull the plug on I’m A Celeb this year as it’s lost its mojo. Hosting it in the castle was a novelty last year, but after Richard Madeley was forced to quit and the disruption caused by the severe weather, I don’t see much point in carrying on. They should either come back to the castle in the summer or wait until they can go back into the jungle. Personally, I preferred it when it was in Australia. Claire Timothy, North London How to win back voters ■ ■ Now Labour is ahead in the polls, Sir Keir Starmer should step up a gear and reconnect with the party’s core supporters – the working class. He should pledge to axe prescription charges in England, abolish the unpopular and unnecessary Bedroom Tax, end tuition fees and restore free TV licences for the over-75s. Sir Keir must include those policies in the next election manifesto in order for the Labour Party to return to power. Steve Goulding, Sheffield ■ ■ So, Boris Johnson has dropped his plans for a bridge or tunnel connecting Northern Ireland with Scotland. Great news. This means he now has billions to put into the NHS to give a proper rise to its staff, as well as to the police and other frontline workers. Then again, I shan’t be holding my breath. Mindy Lee Woodford Green, Essex Tweet of the day Good Morning Britain’s Alex Beresford calls on everyone to mask up... @alexberesfordTV – If making masks mandatory again keeps the country moving and doesn’t stop us from seeing loved ones this Christmas, just wear one and keep another lockdown at bay! ■ ■ I couldn’t help but have a little titter to myself when I read that turkeys may be in short supply this year. Britain will never be short on turkeys because every time we have an election they come out in millions to keep the Tories in power!

In the Daily Mirror Saturday 4 DECEMBER 2021 AMAZING HOTELS: LIFE BEYOND THE LOBBY BBC2, 8pm IT’S the best presenting gig on television: chef Monica Galetti and restaurant critic Giles Coren visit the most amazing hotels in the world. There is a vague nod to hard work as the pair are supposed to go behind the scenes and help out. But mostly they are just there to CANNON BALLS Ed, right as a baby, visits Portsmouth explore and have a good time. This latest envy-inducing series starts in the land of ice and fire as they layer up to visit the ION Adventure Hotel in Iceland. It’s a striking building jutting out in the middle of nowhere, 20 miles from the nearest shop, and perfect for adventures. It’s close to a dormant volcano, which the hotel receptionist worryingly describes as being “overdue for 2,000 years”. She says they do have a few tremors, but nothing to worry about. For a heated challenge, Giles and Monica get to work with safety crews who ensure the guests are safe. They discover the hotel is not for the faint-hearted as they get involved in a range of eye-popping adventure activities, from snorkelling in icy water between tectonic plates, to exploring fresh lava flows and BRITNEY BBC1, 11.35pm When she was 23, Charly Clive discovered she had a tumour the size of a golf ball in her brain. She named it Britney and wrote a sellout comedy show about it. Now, she and best friend Ellen Robertson have created, written and star in this dark comedy about their experiences. It’s a sweet friendship romcom, where Charly and Ellen are desperate for their happy ending. It’s surreal too, glaciers. Monica also visits the hotel’s unlikely neighbour, a geothermal power plant, while Giles goes fishing with a local family to stock the restaurant kitchen. They both end up feeling a bit whacked from all the various expeditions, but it’s clearly a thrilling place to visit. Giles even says: “I think it’s been the most adventurous time we’ve had in Europe.” with even Britney the tumour having a starring role. Beginning with their first meeting, Charly is auditioning for roles in her “moving family divorce drama in rhyming couplets”. Ellen is the only one to audition and they decide to be friends for ever. Ten years on and Charly is leaving a dubious career in New York to pop home and visit her best friend. They want to relive the glory days of hair crimping, co-dependence and plans to live together in London... But Charly’s health has other plans. BURIED DAVID THEWLIS and OLIVIA COLMAN play a killer couple in true crime drama Landscapers SECRETS All the new shows, soap news and 7-day listings More TV and film news online at mirror.co.uk/tv WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? BBC1, 9pm Former Labour politician Ed Balls might now be better known for memorable dancing on Strictly, excellent cooking skills and his bold documentaries. He’s recently filmed a programme about the care home crisis, spurred on by the personal experience of his mother Carolyn’s dementia. And she is the inspiration here. The 54-year-old says: “I wish I had the conversations with her in the way that I should have done, but maybe this will be a chance to make some connections that still make sense to her.” Ed doesn’t know much about his ancestors, having never even met three of his grandparents, but assumes they are from a long line of Norfolk farming stock. He couldn’t be more wrong. Rumours on his paternal side about a link to Nelson’s ship HMS Victory lead Ed to Portsmouth and the story of his three-times-great grandfather, an assistant surgeon. On his mother’s side he feels a deep connection with an agricultural labourer put on trial. DARK COMEDY Ellen and Charly

DM1ST TUESDAY 30.11.2021 DAILY MIRROR 39 mirror.co.uk/business FINANCE Edited by GRAHAM mirror.co.uk/business HISCOTT Nissan £13bn charge ahead UK to lEad ElEctric car crUSadE CAR giant Nissan has announced plans to spend more than £13billion on developing electric vehicles. The Japanese firm, which has a major plant in Sunderland, revealed it will add 23 new electric models by 2030. By then, Nissan aims for half its global output to be made up of electric vehicles. It said it will spend around £13.2bn on electric vehicles over the next five years. Chief executive Makoto Uchida said: “The role of companies to address societal needs is increasingly heightened. “We want to transform Nissan to become a sustainable company that is truly needed by customers and society.” Nissan has plans to bring in all-solid-state batteries by 2028, which ftse 100 Abrdn .........................................235.8 -2.3 Anglo American .................2683.5 +48.5 AB Foods .................................1907.0 +22.0 Admiral Group .....................3013.0 +50.0 AstraZeneca .........................8367.0 -44.0 Aviva PLC ................................. 378.2 +7.3 BAE Systems...........................549.8 0.0 B&M European .......................625.0 -3.0 BAT ...........................................2556.0 +15.0 Balfour Beatty ........................237.6 +2.0 Barclays.....................................183.3 +1.6 BHP Group .............................2019.0 +57.0 BR Land Co ...............................521.4 +6.4 BP .................................................327.7 +10.1 BT .................................................163.4 +9.4 Capita Group .............................45.1 +1.5 Carnival ................................... 1216.4 +33.6 Centrica .......................................65.3 +0.4 Compass ................................1522.0 +68.5 Currys Plc .................................133.0 -1.0 Diageo ....................................3823.5 +64.0 Direct Line ................................267.2 +3.1 Easyjet ......................................502.6 +2.8 Ferguson ...............................11555.0 +70.0 Frasers Group .........................691.5 +8.5 GlaxoSmithKline ................. 1525.0 +14.2 Halfords .....................................321.2 +0.2 Hays ............................................148.3 +1.4 up 65.9 at 7109.9 Oil = $74.90 HSBC ...........................................416.5 +2.4 Imperial Brands .................. 1563.0 +14.0 International Airlines Grp ..131.0 -0.4 ITV .................................................. 111.2 +2.6 JD Sports ..................................1141.5 +39.5 Kingfisher ................................326.0 +1.0 Land Securities ...................... 751.0 +9.2 Legal & General .....................284.9 +2.2 Lloyds ...........................................46.8 +0.8 Marks & Spencer ..................240.7 +2.6 National Grid .........................1001.2 -1.0 NatWest Group .......................210.4 +2.2 Next ......................................... 7962.0 +114.0 Ocado ......................................1834.0 +5.0 Pearson .....................................614.6 +4.4 Persimmon............................2759.0 +29.0 Prudential ............................. 1294.5 -9.0 Reckitt ..................................... 6164.0 -22.0 RELX ........................................2343.0 +34.0 Rentokil Initial ........................618.6 +2.6 Rio Tinto .................................4621.5 +79.0 Rolls-Royce ..............................122.5 +0.9 Royal Dutch Shell B ........... 1594.0 +37.6 Royal Mail ................................500.2 -5.4 J Sainsbury .............................289.7 -3.9 SSE ............................................1558.0 -6.0 Severn Trent .........................2907.0 +8.0 Serco...........................................132.7 +0.8 will be one-third quicker to charge. It also aims to use cobalt-free technology to bring down the cost by 65% by 2028. The price of electric cars is falling but the cost over diesel and petrol models is seen as one of the obstacles stopping more people buying them. Nissan indicated it was hoping to achieve “price parity” in Europe by around 2025. Unlike other car makers, it has not committed to a date when it will stop producing diesel and petrol cars. Nissan chief operating officer Ashwani Gupta stressed the importance of the North East plant, saying: “Europe will take the lead on electrification around the world for Nissan. “In Europe, Sunderland is the one that will take the lead towards electrification.” PLANT Sunderland tillS Go at SaiNSBUrY’S Sainsbury’s has teamed up with online giant Amazon to open a till-less store. The hi-tech branch opened in Holborn, central London, yesterday, yards from similar Tesco and Amazon Fresh checkout-free stores. Sainsbury’s is using the web giant’s Just Walk Out technology for the shop in Amazon’s first partnership with a third-party customer. Customers use an app when entering the store, where cameras log which products are purchased before charging customers’ credit or debit cards. The Sainsbury’s branch is the same one which first tried till-free operation in 2019. However, the trial was ended months later after complaints from shoppers who found the experience difficult. Irn-Bru 6 maker AG Barr has revealed profits for the year are expected to beat market forecasts after strong sales continued. The Scottish business, which also makes Rubicon and Tizer, said sales since September “have grown ahead of our expectations”. It has been boosted by ongoing positive trade in the “on the go” and hospitality markets.

TUESDAY 30.11.2021 DAILY MIRROR 41 darts: WOrLd CHaMPIONsHIP draW ON TARGET Fallon Sherrock is delighted with the draw FALLON’S HAPPY TO GET HOT DATE WITH AN ADONIS By MIKE WALTERS FALLON SHERROCK landed a dream draw on her return to Alexandra Palace – a date with former world champion and record-breaker Steve Beaton. If she makes it past the Bronzed Adonis, the Queen of the Palace will meet fiery Belgian Kim ‘Hurricane’ Huybrechts in the second round. And Sherrock, who made history as the first woman to KO male rivals at the William Hill PDC World Championship two years ago, called on the fancy dress legions to give Beaton (right) a fair hearing, saying: “I hope the crowd will be nice to him.” The first lady of the oche, who shocked Ted Evetts and No.11 seed Mensur Suljovic in December 2019, was thrilled to land Beaton, 57 – who won the Lakeside world title 25 years ago and will be playing in a record 31st world championship. Sherrock, who was fourth name out of the hat, said: “It’s an exciting draw and at least I didn’t have to wait long. “I get to play an icon of the sport and it will be a privilege. Steve will let the game flow and he won’t try anything (gamesmanship), which some players do. “There were so many former world champions in the draw – I could have got Raymond van Barneveld or Adrian Lewis, but I’m very happy. “I can’t wait to hear the crowd roar and feel the electric atmosphere again. I’ve waited two years for this and I want to relive it all again. “I need to focus my practice on set play and get that mentality back in the next couple of weeks, but I can’t wait.” In a draw top-loaded with intrigue, former world champions Lewis and Gary Anderson could meet in the second round if ‘Jackpot’ beats Matt Campbell. And people’s champion Barney, making his Ally Pally comeback two years after a short-lived retirement, will face 2018 champion Rob Cross if he beats Filipino outsider Lourence Ilagen. World No.1 Gerwyn Price (below) will begin his defence of the title on the opening night – December 15 – against Ritchie Edhouse or Lihao Wen.

42 DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 30.11.2021 RUGBY LEAGUE TIME OFF IN LEU IS OUT By JULIE STOTT TOMMy LEULUAI has admitted he fights against the perks of being the oldest player in Super League. The 36-year-old half back is being told by the Wigan coaching staff to sit out some of pre-season training. But the former New Zealand World Cup winner (above) said: “I am usually my own worst enemy. I do not like pulling out of sessions. “I’ve done 20 of these pre-seasons so I definitely know where I need to be at and I’m not too far off where I need to be at the start of the season.” Leuluai had been considering retiring until a torn hamstring wiped out his season in early August. Wigan had offered him a role on the coaching team under new boss Matty Peat but Leuluai refused to end his playing career on a low note. The two-time Grand Final winner said: “Last season with the injuries didn’t feel like the right time. I still know I have something in there. “I have still got that desire to play and contribute to winning stuff. I have played way longer than what I thought. Now I just want an injury free season next year.” RUGBY UNION CARDIFF FACING EURO KO By ALEx SpInk CARDIFF’S European Cup bid could be over before it begins if they are unable to escape restrictions in time to face champions Toulouse. The Welsh region are stranded in South Africa, where they had travelled to play two URC fixtures, when the Rainbow Nation was suddenly added to the UK’s red travel list. Despite just two positive tests – both players do not feel ill but are in a “specialist” quarantine hotel – Cardiff are unable to leave Cape Town. The fear is that they will be told to have 10 days of isolation before being allowed to fly, followed by a further 10 of hotel quarantine on arrival home. Toulouse are due in the Welsh capital on Saturday week and teams who fail to fulfil Champions Cup fixtures forfeit the game with a 28-0 scoreline. It is understood Cardiff will not be granted an exemption. And with home and away pool games against English champions Harlequins to come, followed by a return trip to Toulouse, that would leave them with a mountain to climb. Operations manager Gafyn Cooper (above) confirmed last night the team were self-isolating and PCR tests taken on Sunday had all come back negative. DM1ST HORSE RACING Racing goes undeR the micRoscope Bryony Frost bullying case starts today By ChrIS GOULdInG Racing prides itself on equality – and the sport will hold its breath today. A disciplinary panel of the British Horseracing Authority will open to hear the case of allegations from Bryony Frost that she has repeatedly been bullied and harassed by fellow rider Robbie Dunne. Dunne (below) could be banned from race riding for three years if he is found guilty of the claims made by Frost, Britain’s most successful female jump jockey. He has been charged with conduct which the BHA considers “is prejudicial to the integrity, proper conduct and good reputation of horse racing in Britain by bullying and harassing a fellow licensed jockey” between February 13, 2020 and September 3, 2020. The panel will consider if Dunne was guilty of acting in a violent or improper manner by verbally abusing threatening a fellow jockey in three races during 2020. and Th e f irst allegations surfaced after the pair GOLf clashed at Stratford on July 8 followed by Uttoxeter on August 17 and Southwell on September 3. At Southwell, Dunne was involved in an exchange with Frost after his mount Cillian’s Well was fatally injured after falling. Details have emerged that Dunne had allegedly complained that Frost had ridden dangerously during the race. Frost and Dunne first exchanged words back in 2017. The inquiry will also focus on Dunne’s conduct in the changing room where he is alleged to have stood naked in front of Frost during their exchanges. Since the allegations, a second female rider has complained of similar behaviour from a male jockey. Frost became the first female rider to capture last year’s iconic King George VI Chase at Kempton on Frodon and became a recognised face outside the confines of racing circles after her historic victory. Following Frost’s victory, the BHA were first made aware of bullying allegations the rider had received from Dunne. It was the first-time a jockey has brought such charges against a fellow rider regarding their behaviour in or out of the saddle. Before the date was fixed for the hearing, details of the BHA investigation had been leaked in a 120-page report to The Sunday Times. A further embarrassment followed for the BHA when Chris Watts, the head of integrity assurance for the BHA, departed from his post two months ago. This prompted the Professional Jockeys’ Association to call for closure of the case as they feared Dunne would not receive a fair hearing. A three-strong panel will conduct the case that will be chaired by Brian Barker QC, a former recorder of London and appeal court judge and also chair of sport’s judicial panel. The hearing is expected to take place over six days. BRYONY FROST v ROBBIE DUNNE AGE: . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 26 BORN: . .

Woods spoke of his progress and remaining ambitions one week after posting a clip on his Twitter account of him hitting balls on a practice range. The 45-year-old had surgery on open fractures to his lower right leg and further injuries to his foot and ankle in February after his car flew off a road, hit a tree and rolled over several times. At one point he feared his leg could be amputated. He had completed a remarkable recovery from back surgery to win his 15th Major title at the Masters in 2019, but effectively dismissed the possibility of a repeat, telling Golf Digest: “I don’t have to compete and play against the best players in the world to have a great life. “After my back fusion, I had to climb Mount Everest one more time. I had to do it, and I did. “This time around, I don’t think I’ll have the body to climb Mount Everest and that’s OK. I can still participate in the game of golf. I can still, if my leg gets OK, click off a tournament here or there. “But as far as climbing the mountain again and getting all the way to the top, I don’t think that’s a realistic expectation of me. “I think something that is realistic is playing the Tour one day – never full-time, ever again – but pick and choose.”

DM1ST mirror.co.uk/sport TUESDAY 30.11.2021 DAILY MIRROR 43 cricket time to deliver Root needs to hit top form if England are to win back the Ashes root: we will rise for ashes skipper is undaunted by past failures By Gideon Brooks JOE ROOT’s Test record in Australia should act as a fairly firm brake on any runaway optimism ahead of next week’s Ashes opener at the Gabba. Nine attempts spread over two visits, five as the England captain, and nothing but mental scarring and a bit-part in a bore draw at Melbourne to show for his efforts. Despite such a bruising personal history and a tour in which preparations have been hammered by Covid, bad weather and a squad separated by quarantine restrictions until this morning, he believes this time could be different. He feels England have a “brilliant opportunity” t o a c h i e v e something that has happened only once in the last eight attempts. “ I k n o w exactly what it’s like to be on the wrong side of series out here,” said Root. “It’s a dream, isn’t it? For an England player to play in Australia and win is the dream. The cherry on top, if you like. We feel we have a brilliant opportunity ahead of us. “We’ve prepared as well as we can and if we can control our emotions, play to our skill levels, be smart in certain situations and do things differently to how we’ve done them previously, I believe we’ve a brilliant chance to do something special.” England’s T20 World Cup players and senior coaching staff including Chris Silverwood have been kept apart until now due to Covid quarantine.

44 DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 30.11.2021 snooker uk championship weary williams chalks snooze down to covid By Hector NuNNs SNOOKeR legend Mark Williams has apologised for falling asleep during a UK Championship match. The 46-year-old was left severely fatigued and breathless after a bout of Covid – but decided to play in York in the season’s first Major. But the three-time world champion could not keep his bloodshot eyes open during a 6-5 late-night defeat to veteran Anthony Hamilton at the Barbican (top right). The world No.9 said: “I’d like to apologise to anyone watching the match. In 30 years as a professional I’ve never, ever fallen asleep in my chair before. It was nothing to do with Anthony by the way, I just don’t feel well from Covid. It is a bit embarrassing, and not professional. “It was 3-2 and I was out. My head went down and I woke up and I didn’t have a clue where I was for about five seconds. I was just shattered. “I need to be playing in the mornings really, or afternoons at the moment. The more the day goes on, the more tired I get. “It’s disappointing but there’s a lot of people that have had Covid worse than I’ve had it - so I’m one of the lucky ones really.” Ronnie O’Sullivan (above) says the string of former UK Championship winners falling by the wayside gave him a laugh. The Rocket beat Mark King 6-3 to move into the last 16 as he bids to win the title for an eighth title. Plenty of his rivals have already gone including Mark Selby, Neil Robertson, Williams, Ding Junhui, Shaun Murphy and John Higgins, beaten 6-5 yesterday by China’s Zhao Xintong. O’Sullivan, who believes he has earned favour with the ‘snooker gods’ for his hard work and dedication over a 30-year career, said: “You hear about the other UK champions losing. I have a little chuckle when I see all these other big names being bombed out.” DM1ST boxing khan v brook Head to head!

BY cHris McKeNNa IT has been a fight in the making since sparring sessions in 2004 when the two were still amateurs. But it took just seconds for Amir Khan and Kell Brook to put hands on each other as they finally announced they will step into the ring together early next year at a press conference which began with a push and a shove. It is a bout that may be past its sell-by date but it will probably still be lapped up when the time comes. Athens Olympics silver medallist Khan, soon to be 35, and Brook, at 35, will finally get it on on February 19 at Manchester Arena. It could have happened in 2012, it should have happened in 2016, and in 2018 we thought it was on. But now it will be 2022 when Britain’s two best between lightwelterweight and welterweight in GRUDGE MATCH FINALLY ON AFTER 17 YEARS the last decade finally settle their feud. Billed as ‘Judgement Day’ it will not judge who the best welterweight on the planet is but it will finally end a saga which has hung over British boxing for years. “The fight is done now so he should let go of the hate and the past but it eats away at him, that could be one of his biggest downfalls,” said Khan about his rival. “He doesn’t dislike me, he’s just jealous.” “With Kell Brook it is always good to have a little laugh with him and light the fire a little bit because I know he gets angry and he’s not the best at responding so it is always good to get him on the back foot early,” said Khan. “We have already got one on him.” Former light-welterweight champion Khan reckons he is getting the “lion’s share” of the money pot for the fight which will be at a catchweight of 10st 9lb with ‘six-figure’ penalties for every pound either is over. The Bolton fighter believes his Sheffield rival is only in it for the money but the ex-IBF welterweight king insists it is not about cashing out. “I don’t need to fight again. I am not like him and his wife flying first class everywhere,” said Brook. “I am a council estate kid with plenty of millions so settling a grudge and giving it to the fans is what I am doing it for. I‘ll enjoy the payday but knocking him out will be worth more.” Brook will be back with trainer Dom Ingle (above) who was not in his corner for his last fight against Terence Crawford which ended in defeat in November 2020. trailblazer reema’s historic saudi drive SAudI ARAbIA’S first female racing driver Reema Juffali has been appointed an ambassador for the country’s inaugural Formula One Grand Prix in Jeddah this week.

DM1ST mirror.co.uk/sport TUESDAY 30.11.2021 DAILY MIRROR 45 leeds v C PalaCe BY JohN cRoss Chief Football Writer @johncrossmirror cHRistiaN BENtEKE might not need lucky omens after rediscovering his form under Patrick Vieira. But the Crystal Palace striker does have a quirky stat on his side as he prepares to face Leeds tonight. Only Alan Shearer, with 15, and Wayne Rooney, with 13, have scored more goals than Benteke’s 12... on a Tuesday during the Premier League era. Palace boss Vieira laughed when he was told that at his pre-match press conference yesterday and said: “I may have to start him tomorrow, then!” Benteke, 30, has already scored five goals for club and Belgium this season having previously gone nearly a year – between April 2018 and April 2019 – without scoring. But not only has he found his form in front of goal, the £27million striker’s all-round game has blossomed under Vieira. The Eagles boss feels his side are playing to Benteke’s strengths while Odsonne Edouard and loan signing Jean-Philippe Mateta are also providing competition. “I’m really pleased with Christian’s form at the moment. He’s working really well, working hard for the team and most importantly he’s scoring goals,” added Vieira. “He’s playing with a lot of confidence and the way we play, the amount of possession that we have has allowed him to touch the ball a bit more, create more chances. “And the fact we want to defend higher up the field has allowed him to be more involved in the game and that suits him. “As well the fact we have Edouard and JP as well brings out the best in him because maybe he needs the competition around him to challenge him. “I didn’t teach him how to score goals. I will be happy if he gets into double figures – I think he can do that easily.” Vieira’s team have been on a good run which was interrupted by Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat to Aston Villa. The Palace boss paid tribute to former boss Roy Hodgson for his role in helping him settle in so quickly. “It’s all credit to the previous manager. Roy developed the players and the club into something that allowed me to come straight in and work,” said Vieira.

Super sub Gray broke Derby’s hearts after Ilias Chair’s header had struck the post, flicking up the rebound, taking a further touch before swivelling and volleying into the top corner. It was cruel on Wayne Rooney’s Rams who certainly do not seem to think they are on a mission impossible to stay up. Docked 21 points and rooted at the bottom of the table, they looked like they could halt Mark Warburton’s in-form side. But they were floored in the final minute as Gray sparked wild celebrations with his team-mates. Derby stunned the visitors with a wonderful early goal and QPR certainly cannot say they were not warned. The home side went at them from the off and could have been in front in less than 90 seconds when Tom Lawrence just failed to get the vital touch from six yards. In the early exchanges you certainly would not have guessed who was rooted at the bottom and who was looking to get themselves right on the tails of the top two. And Lawrence underlined the point when he raced on to a Andrew Shinnie’s superb through ball and found himself clear on goal.

Derby fans chanted: “And now you’re going to believe us, the Rams are staying up!” Then QPR ace Charlie Austin caused an anxious moment when he met Chair’s free-kick but his header flew just over. Rooney no doubt stressed to his side the importance of keeping their concentration. But just five minutes into the second half they were caught napping when Austin cut a ball over to the far post and Chris Willock brilliantly volleyed in an equaliser.

46 DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 30.11.2021 EVERTON v LIVERPOOL DM1ST PREMIER LEAGUE TOMORROW, 8.15pM Clubs set to oppose shake-up By John Cross PREMIER LEaguE clubs are due to meet this week to formulate their opposition to proposals for an independent regulator. aston Villa chief executive Christian Purslow and Crystal Palace chairman Steve Parish have publicly opposed the idea, which is among the recommendations in a probe led by former Sports Minister Tracey Crouch into how football is governed. The review also wants a 10 per cent levy on transfers and the complete overhaul of the parachute payment system. But top-flight clubs argue they already give billions of pounds to the grassroots game and have helped EFL clubs in financial trouble. Parish called the proposals a “huge act of self harm”, while Purslow warned they could end up killing the “golden goose”. Clubs will also discuss the Newcastle united takeover and blocking “in-house” deals amid concerns Toon’s wealthy Saudi-led owners could inflate commercial tie-ups to boost spending power. Ralph will be all rout By DAVE ArMITAGE BRENDaN RODgERS says Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl will not have a sleepless night over their 9-0 mauling by Leicester. The Foxes head to St Mary’s tomorrow – scene of that stunning demolition job two seasons ago. With hotshot Jamie Vardy buzzing after his double in Sunday’s 4-2 win over Watford (above), and Southampton losing 4-0 to Liverpool at the weekend, it could be a daunting proposition for Hasenhuttl. But counterpart Rodgers said: “I’m sure Ralph will be sleeping pretty well. The 9-0 was an iconic night, but I’m pretty sure you won’t be seeing that again. “It will be tough – they have talented players.” By DAVID MADDoCK @MaddockMirror RAFA BENITEZ knows the cavalry, if it arrives at all, isn’t coming any time soon. The spotlight of the Merseyside derby tomorrow is the start of a run of five matches in 18 days, which will ask some searing questions about an Everton squad undermined by a long list of injuries. Arsenal follow after the weekend, Chelsea and Leicester in quick succession, with a trip to Crystal Palace in between – all of them sides above the Blues in the table and all in form. He will be without top scorer Dominic Calvert-Lewin for those matches and defender Yerry Mina too, which makes the potential respite of the January transfer window look an awful long way away. Indeed, if an Everton side who have won just one of their last 10 matches continue that dismal run – as many fear against such tough opponents – then the sanctity of the window doesn’t even come before what could then be relegation showdowns with Burnley and Newcastle over Christmas. No wonder there are already murmurings from an Everton support who were sceptical in the extreme in the first place about the appointment of a manager so closely identified with their most hated rivals. He knows from experience of course, that victory over the neighbours would buy him time like no other victory, but the flip side of that is the reaction of fans if Everton should capitulate. Marco Silva’s fate was sealed by humiliating defeat inflicted by the old enemy, supporters making clear they would not tolerate him any longer. So the Liverpool game becomes piv- otal to the former Anfield boss. Everton know it. Abdoulaye Doucoure (right) spoke after the Brentford defeat of a “huge” derby game, where he and his team-mates must “show more character and aggression and achieve results to make the fans happy.” He also offered a passionate call to the supporters to get behind the team at Goodison Park, after they have been quick to turn in the face of some dismal performances in recent weeks. “We need a result, and the fans will be so important for us. We know they are demanding more – at the moment that is not the case, so we need them to help us,” he said. Benitez has been around long enough to know how much he needs the fans right now, to get some breathing space before his planned move Derby is just start of a testing time for Benitez IT’S GOING GET EVEN TO rOUGHEr FOr rAFA have the same belief and conviction we will do well. We are missing key players but I am sure in the second part of the league the team will be better,” he said. “We have to analyse things in perspective. When you analyse our squad, the key players in terms of possession, passing and playing, some are injured, so that is very into the transfer market in difficult to manage. January to ease Everton’s woes. “We want to be sure There are no guarantees of in January we have a course: the painful reality of back-up in some positions that allows us to only a pitiful £2million spend in the summer illustrating the do things in the way lack of funds. we did at the beginning of the season.” But he has tried to remain dispassionate, pointing out Defeat would make that things will improve when that January window he finally gets his important seem a lifetime away players back, and the cavalry for an under-pressure arrives in the window. “Still I manager.

In trying to take the heat out of the clash at Everton – which saw him and Virgil van Dijk both crocked in the same fixture a year ago, and forced into lengthy absences – Liverpool’s Spanish midfielder (above) described it as ‘just another game’. In the game at Goodison Park last October, he was injured by a challenge from Everton forward Richarlison, who was dismissed for serious foul play and spent three months on the sidelines. Van Dijk fared even worse, a wild lunge from Blues keeper Jordan Pickford catching him on the knee and causing a cruciate ligament injury which ended his season. Both clubs want to avoid any unnecessary hype before the contest tomorrow and Thiago said: “It’s a derby, it’s always special. But we have to have in our mind it’s another Premier League game that we have to give our all. “It doesn’t matter, it’s a derby for the crowd. For us, it’s just a game that we have to play now, away from home.”

DM1ST mirror.co.uk/sport TUESDAY 30.11.2021 DAILY MIRROR 47 @StanCollymore STAn Collymore The man who always speaks his mind Pott’s shot at Seagulls I LOVED Graham Potter’s feistiness after Brighton’s 0-0 draw with Leeds and he was right — what are Seagulls fans expecting this season? After stabilising them, Potter (below) has given ‘nice Brighton’ some teeth and, in ninth place, they’re now playing with a style and swagger to match. I do wonder what the expectations are at smaller clubs who build shiny new homes that are populated with a small hardcore of fans but swelled with the chattering classes who turn up to be entertained in a league full of giant clubs and billionaires. Safety? Entertainment? Europe? One thing is for sure, Brighton are a progressive club with a very progressive coach and the natives should be doing cartwheels instead of booing. MANCHESTER UNITED’S point at Chelsea convinced me they should have two systems for the rest of the season — counter-attacking away from home with the extra midfielder as they did at Stamford Bridge and an attacking 4-3-3 at home that gives the Old Trafford faithful the front-foot football they love. JAMES MADDISON was superb for Leicester against Watford but he frustrates the life out of me. He has an ability that could and should be showcased regularly at the top of the division, in Europe and with England. But he’s cocky bordering on overconfident at times and, at 25, the cocky-kid shtick has to give way to a senior pro mentality that sees him get his head down and deliver the goods over 38 games a season. Everton fans are seeing Red but Benitez needs at least a season to prove his worth IF Everton’s form since Rafa Benitez took over could be flipped on its head, I’m convinced their supporters would be happy. That’s the bizarre thing about football – if one win in nine under a new boss had come before four wins and a draw in six, then plenty of fans would be thinking progress was being made no matter the fact their team would still have 15 points and be sitting in 14th. As it is, Evertonians are getting restless and going into tomorrow’s Merseyside derby against Liverpool there’s a g r o w i n g discourse about the fact an ex- Reds boss is i n charge. What I can’t understand is, however you carve it up, Everton aren’t a million miles from where they should be. Because, as I’ve said before, at their absolute best they could finish seventh and at their absolute worst they will be 10th or 11th. Right now, they are five points off Wolves in sixth and three points off Leicester in 10th, so I rest my case on that front. As for the anger towards Benitez, well, tell us all something we didn’t see coming. Everyone knew he’d become a ‘Red so-and-so’ the minute Everton went on a bad run and that ‘Agent Rafa’ would start trending on Twitter. And you can bet your house on the fact it will get a whole lot worse if they lose heavily against Liverpool. With that sorry effort Seamus Coleman apologises to the Everton fans after defeat at Brentford in mind, there are two ways Everton can go from here. They can either say, ‘Look, he’s a new manager for us, it’s his first season and everyone should have factored in that the Agent Rafa stuff would appear when we were going through a bad spell. ‘But all clubs in the middle of the table, those from seventh to 12th, will have a bad spell, whether it’s Brighton, Aston Villa, Leeds or us. ‘And we are where we are not because he is an ex- Liverpool employee but because we have a couple of players out.’ On top of that, Everton would do well to remember that Benitez teams tend to come good in the second half of the season, so they must factor that in as well. The other option is for Farhad Moshiri, Denise Barrett-Baxendale and Marcel Brands to say, ‘Seeing about 1,500 Everton fans flicking the ‘Vs’ to the players when they came over at Brentford, that’s toxic and something that can only get worse, so let’s get someone new.’ I hope they don’t go down that route. But, if they do, then the Everton board will be to blame, not Benitez, because it’s not like they didn’t know about his past when they hired him. The best thing Everton and Evertonians could do is give the Spaniard this season and see where they are then. If they are seventh it would qualify as a very good campaign and if they are 11th it’ll be time in the summer to sit down and say, ‘Thanks, Rafa, but that’s not good enough, goodbye.’ For now, though, however frustrating things are, Everton will do well to remember they are pretty much where they should be. The word is out... time to educate some of our players DURING my playing days, ‘Holocaust’ and ‘Chernobyl’ were used liberally in dressingrooms as words for ‘nightmare’ or ‘woeful’. It’s important I tell you this because football speak is a weird mishmash of sayings, old and new, which homebased and foreign players use as accepted language without even thinking about what words actually mean. Joey Barton and Carlton Cole are the most recent examples but, I’m telling you, the majority of players have used those words at some point around the training ground and, more often than not, it will have been without knowing what they meant other than something simply being bad. Is that an excuse? No, of course not. But football is a bubble and — while I’m not talking about Barton or Cole here — it’s often filled with barely-educated young men from the age of 10 to 35 who simply don’t associate those words with anything other than someone having a poor game or bad touch. It’s crazy, I know, but I hope with a little context people won’t be too hard on them. I also hope, though, that their remarks are a line in the sand for the PFA and other authorities to let players old and new know what is and isn’t acceptable. Football needs to have a good look at itself and, as other sports and industries have done, banish offensive words and phrases for good. COLLYWOBBLER SURELY with good forecasts and blow-up heated domes to put over pitches we should have seen the last of postponements due to snow? Tents should be made mandatory across the Premier League now and, when not needed, must go elsewhere in the football pyramid to keep games on. Granted there’s little to do if walkways or concourses are a danger, but that wouldn’t necessarily mean call-offs.

48 DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 30.11.2021 newcastle utd v norwich city IT’S HOWE Or nEvEr Newcastle have gone 190 days without a win but, as Toon boss experiences St James’ for the first time tonight, his side have to find a way to get a victory against fellow strugglers Norwich and Burnley this week DM1ST BY simon bird @SimonBird_ HOLED up in isolation in his hotel room, Eddie Howe says he could hear the cheers when Newcastle scored three times last time out at St James’ Park. Tonight he will experience the power of the Tyneside crowd from the home dug-out for the first time. Just as against Brentford 10 days ago, there will be a ferocity of welcome and noisy following incongruous with the club’s dire position in the table. “We have to start winning soon to justify that belief,” said Howe. Toon have not had a victory in 13 games, have conceded 29 goals, and are six points adrift of safety. They last picked up all three points six months and six days ago - 190 days. Only one club in Premier League history have escaped the drop from this position, and beating bottom-three rivals Norwich tonight and Burnley on Saturday is essential. Howe has seen enough attacking potential to merit defiant optimism, while frOm back PagE with top players, including Kieran Trippier, since the Saudi’s took over last month, amid claims of a £50million kitty. But there are fears that targets will not want to join United because of their league position, and PROBABLE TEAMS nEwcaSTlE norwIch Dubravka Krul Krafth Aarons Clark Hanley Schar Gibson Lewis Williams Fraser Gilmour Shelvey Rupp Willock McLean Saint-Maximin Sargent Joelinton Pukki Wilson Rashica admitting the backline has to be shored up. And he does not agree with former boss Rafa Benitez’s assessment of the merits of the squad he has inherited. “It’s a huge challenge ahead,” he said. “I was aware of the fixture list in December. But I’ve been boosted by the players, their reaction to us, their attitude every day. “If we stay united, together, I know we can achieve good things and achieve our aim.” Newcastle’s problem is defending. A deficiency at full-back, a need for more quality at centre-back, and more powerful enforcement from a holding midfielder. Benitez always believed Toon had a “short blanket” - when they attacked it left the TV TIMES: Live on Amazon Prime from 7pm risk of relegation in a World Cup year. Howe admitted: “It is very difficult to make any promises that we will definitely spend money and sign players. “You have to attract the players, the players have defence exposed and vice versa. But Howe said: “I don’t believe in copying Rafa’s statement. Stretching the blanket would be a better way of putting it. Coaching and educating and helping the players. “When confidence returns we will see a different team. Attack and defending balance to want to come, they have to be the right players and have to improve your squad. “That is why, as everyone knows, January is an incredibly difficult window to recruit players, especially when your is difficult for any team.” Allan Saint-Maximin played almost as an extra left-back in the defeat to Arsenal and needs to be released without exposing Jamal Lewis, who is likely to start tonight with Matt Ritchie suspended. Howe added: “Positives? Going back to our last home game, the chances we created, over 20 shots, we looked like an attacking threat. “There were moments the other way when we weren’t so stable. Same at Arsenal. I’m not saying we had clear-cut chances but we will be in games from an attacking perspective. “We have to improve the defending side, the whole team, not any group of players. Dubravka came back and played very well. There were positive signs but we can’t keep saying that.” Howe is comforted by how tight the bottom-half scrap is: “I think a lot of teams have found it difficult to win this year in the Premier League. Every win is so valuable. “It’s a really difficult league when you’re down the bottom, in the bottom half, to build momentum and get consecutive wins, which ultimately makes a huge difference to your season if you can achieve that.” EddiE: no WindoW GUArAnTEE league position is difficult. I can promise that the owners and those above me will support me and the team in trying to do what we need. “It would be foolish of me to make rash promises and statements.”

Victory for the Canaries will see them go level on points with fourthbottom Leeds; defeat means they will be back as the Premier League’s bottom club, with Newcastle above them again. Norwich fans are desperate for a result and Smith reckons the weight of expectation will also be a burden for new Toon boss Eddie Howe. He said: “It is always difficult to think you can buy your way out of or into any position.

50 DAILY MIRROR TUESDAY 30.11.2021 Potter not rattleD by boo boys By Chris hatherall GRAhAM PoTTER says he has received a pile of supportive messages from Brighton fans after criticising the Amex crowd for booing his team against Leeds on Saturday. Albion supporters were frustrated their side could not take three points in a goalless draw, despite creating chances, which has been a long-term problem for Potter’s side. The Brighton boss (above) was quick to point out his team played well, sit ninth in the Premier League, and that there is no need for doom and gloom. he said: “Football is an emotional game and sometimes when it’s emotional you don’t think clearly. I’m sure that some people who booed maybe now think that was a little bit over the top. “It wasn’t the majority. I’ve had loads of messages from supporters since who have been really positive, appreciative and supportive.” Brighton head to West ham tomorrow having gone nine games without a victory, but Potter is backing striker Neal Maupay, who missed a sitter against Leeds, to lead the fightback. Potter said: “he does a lot for the team. he wants to succeed so much.” Snow way game was possible, says Sean By DaviD anDerson SEAN DychE has brushed off criticism of the late postponement of Burnley’s snow-hit game with Spurs. Former Tottenham defender Ramon Vega led the protests, saying calling off the game at Turf Moor just 45 minutes before Sunday’s kick-off was unfair on travelling fans. But clarets boss Dyche said: “It’s no concern to me what people think, the world’s full of it. Everyone’s a journalist, everyone has a view. I just know the facts. “Everything was considered by all the people involved, whether it was player safety, weather reports, the groundsman’s report. “Fan safety was key and the roads were all over the place, they were awful, and the safety of the players. “Everything was put on the table and we said, ‘can we tick all these boxes? No, we can’t’, so therefore it couldn’t go ahead.” Dyche was puzzled by coverage of him going out in his shirt to talk to referee Peter Bankes (above). “I’ve no clue why my shirt and tie is such a big deal,” he said. “I literally popped my head round, saw the ref on the pitch and thought I’ll walk down and have a quick word, that was it. “It wasn’t like, ‘I’ll show them how tough I am, I don’t mind the cold’.” DM1ST reds have landed a winner says united in Ralph on his former boss Ralf: He will leave no stone unturned and even in six months will have a big impact at Manchester United By Matthew Dunn RALPH HASENHUTTL says his mentor Ralf Rangnick is fulfilling a dream by finally following his proteges to the Premier League. The 63-year-old will only take over as interim at Manchester United once his work permit is in place and he has been portrayed as one of the most pragmatic figures in European football since his imminent appointment was first announced last week. But Hasenhuttl’s poignant text of congratulations reveals Rangnick always has had a more fanciful side. “I have not spoken to him,” Hasenhuttl admitted. “Only a message to congratulate him on his big dream of coming to the Premier League. Now it has become real and it is fantastic for him. He’s been waiting for this moment.” Rangnick was first linked with a move to the Premier League as early as 2018 as a successor at Arsenal to Arsene Wenger. However, his teachings began to filter through to England long before he finally made the move here. Former Huddersfield manager David Wagner was his under-19 coach at Hoffenheim while Jurgen Klopp was a longterm admirer as an upand-coming rival. Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel played for Rangnick briefly at Ulm in the German third division, way back in 1997 before the latter brought Tuchel into coaching in the Stuttgart youth set-up after big leip of faith Hasenhuttl is a big fan of ex-Leipzig boss Ralf Rangnick and backed him to be a huge hit injury ended his career. But few have worked as closely with Rangnick’s director between 2016 and 2018. Rangnick himself had led the club from the fourth tier of German games were back-to-back wins – another record for a newly-promoted side. In the end, only Bayern Munich methods as the football to the Bundesliga before could finish above them as the pair Southampton manager, who was hand-picked to carry out first teamduties appointing Austrian Hasenhuttl to take the reins. The pair were an instant hit – claimed Leipzig’s first ever Champions League spot. A year later Hasenhuttl left after under the remaining unbeaten in the top flight the club refused to give him the long- watchful eye of the RB for 13 matches – a record for a new term assurances he wanted, but the Leipzig sporting Bundesliga club. Eight of those pair remained friends. “I know him we’ll hit top gea for gunners By GiDeon brooks DAVID DE GEA says Manchester United will carry renewed confidence into Thursday’s clash against Arsenal after finally “playing properly” again against leaders Chelsea. The Reds keeper had been critical of a drop-off in performance in the final stages of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reign suggesting the team did not know what to do with the ball. But after a battling display to earn a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge in caretaker-manager Michael Carrick’s second game in charge, De Gea insisted: “We can take a lot of confidence from that. “We know Arsenal are in a good moment, they play well, they are improving, so it’s going to be a big game. “But in the situation that we are in, a difficult situation, the team fought for the point so I’m proud of the players. We were very compact, and very determined as a team, so I’m happy with the performance. “That should give us more confidence to win big games and to see again the team playing properly, scoring goals and winning points. “The spirit of the team was great, the fight, the determination, the desire. The players gave everything.”

mirror.co.uk/sport southampton manager good nick Since Sir Alex Ferguson left in 2013, Rangnick will be the seventh very well,” Hasenhuttl said. “We had two very successful years. He was Sporting Director so I know how he is and how he works. “He’s a hard worker and he needs a good team around him. He will turn every stone around there for sure because he doesn’t want any weakness in any part of his club. Six months is not too long to turn things around but he will have a big impact.” The “godfather of the gegenpress” will demand every blade of grass is covered in line with a hard-running brand that seems to hold little truck with luxuries such as Cristiano Ronaldo. Hasenhuttl is confident that United’s choice is an inspired one. “Is he a good addition for the league? Absolutely,” said Hasenhuttl. “In this league it is known that the best managers are working here, that the Premier League has the big teams. “They should always look for the best possible options, and at the moment, he is one of these.” DM1ST boYS’ cLaSh WorrY By Gideon brooks Wednesday’s match, but United MANCHESTER UNITED face a have to come up with the potential headache over solution according to UEFA arrangements for their final rules.

As well as Pogba, other issues he must deal with immediately include transfer targets and the search for a manager. The German will be given funds to add to the squad in January, although he told the board there is already enough talent in place. Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino remains the Reds’ first-choice to succeed Rangnick. But the French club are annoyed at the uncertainty created by suggestions Pochettino wants to leave, and delicate negotiations may be needed to make progress. United hoped to have Rangnick in the dugout when they host Arsenal on Thursday, but he may be delayed by visa paperwork and travel arrangements from Moscow - where he was in charge of development at Lokomotiv Moscow - to Manchester, which have been further complicated by Covid rules on entering the UK. Rangnick is understood to be keen to address the players to get his ideas across as soon as possible . He said: “I’m excited to be joining Manchester United and focused on making this a successful season for the club. “The squad is full of talent and has a great balance of youth and experience. “All my efforts for the next six months will be on helping these players fulfil their potential, both individually and, most importantly, as a team. “Beyond that, I look forward to supporting the club’s longer-term goals on a consultancy basis.” Rangnick is likely to bring in a small staff of his own but will keep the existing coaching structure of Michael Carrick, Kieran McKenna and Mike Phelan.

Chelsea won Team of the Year. Tuchel is rocked by chaos in glory bid By John Cross THOMAS TUCHEL is facing a major fixture pile-up which could play havoc with Chelsea’s chase for trophies. FIFA have finally confirmed the Club World Cup will take place in the United Arab Emirates between February 3-12. Chelsea will have to re-arrange their games at Brighton and at home to Arsenal while the FA Cup fourth round weekend is due to take place on the weekend of February 5-6. The Blues are still in the Carabao Cup – they face Brentford on December 22 – and have qualified for the Champions League knock-out stages. Chelsea will be in the Club World Cup alongside Al Hilal, Al Ahly, Monterrey, Auckland City, Al Jazira Club and Palmeiras but will enter at the semi-final stage on the opposite side of the draw to Copa Libertadores winners Palmeiras. Tuchel (above) and his European champions will be determined to retain their crown while they are also top of the Premier League. Liverpool, who were crowned club world champions in 2019, fielded a youth team which lost 5-0 at Aston Villa in the League Cup and Tuchel may face a similar dilemma.

Solutions at the end Juanita has been assigned a project for her geography coursework. She needs to analyse data relating to five volcanoes across the globe. She is comparing the data sets to determine if there is a connection between the height, location and last eruption date. Mount Ignis was the most recent of the five to erupt, and is shorter than both of the Asian volcanoes. The Icelandic volcano last erupted ten years after the volcano that has a height of 1800 metres. The volcano that last erupted in 1944 is not the tallest of the five, nor is it Mount Ettie.
