Inside Good Morning Britain co-host Ben Shephard’s incr 上海品茶会所edible family home

And when you take a peek inside The Good Morning Britain co-host’s home, you cannot blame him.

He appears to live in a perfect oasis of family bliss with his wife Annie and their two sons, The Mirror reports.

Ben is a keen gardener and has often shown off his handiwork on Instagram.

Peace and quiet for Annie

From the looks of his garden, he certainly has green fingers as it is a space where plants are flourishing and tranquility is key.

Inside the house there is a spacious kitchen and dining room, with a cosy lounge for those long winter nights in.

In the garden with his son

It is outside though which takes pride of place, as Ben grows fruit and puts his handyman skills to good use, making a gin bench for those cheeky G&T moments.

He documented the moment he used it for the first time with a snap on Instagram, captioning it with: “Verified Ahhh the first gins on the garden gin bench (which I built and amazingly is still standing!?) for #2019 – they won’t last long!! #HappyEaster #Gin #GardenGin,” he captioned this photo.

The manicured lawn

Trees and lawns have been perfectly manicured and last year, Ben grew apples in his orchard.

Moving inside the house, the lounge is decked out in a blue colour scheme with hints of mustard.

A perfect escape

There the TV is wall-mounted and the coffee table at the centre of the room is the place for books and candles.

The living room boasts an open and airy feel with doors opening directly out into the garden.

Take a break from the limelight

Moving into the dining area, there is a large wooden table that can comfortably sit eight guests.

Both the lounge area and dining room has wooden parquet flooring running throughout, with a grey rug placed under the dining room table.

A great environment to grow up in

Ben and Annie’s sons are celebrated in black and white framed photos that are wall mounted close to an ornate mirror.

The kitchen boasts modern cabinets and marble worktops, with a grey theme to compliment the dark coloured walls. The windows have white shutter blinds, to close out the day.

It is little wonder why Ben would like to spend more time in his idy,上海品茶微信Bahar,llic home.

Who is Dog t 上海品茶会所he Bounty Hunter’s wife Beth Chapman and how did she die?

BETH CHAPMAN, the wife of Dog the Bounty Hunter, died age 51 following a long battle with cancer.

She had difficulties breathing prior to her death and was placed in a medically-induced coma. Here’s all you need to know about the late star.

When did Dog the Bounty Hunter’s wife Beth Chapman die?

Beth’s death was confirmed by her husband Duane (Dog the Bounty Hunter), who announced her passing on Twitter.

He wrote on June 26, 2019

“Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. W,上海品茶QQKendrick,e all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.”

Before the news of her death broke Hawaii News Now reported that the 51-year-old was placed in a coma by staff at Queen’s Medical Centre in Hawaii.

TMZ then claimed Beth – real name Alice Elizabeth – was “not expected to recover” and sources reported that the family were “preparing for the worst”.

However, Dog seemed to slam the report by tweeting: “90% of what you’re hearing is fake news. I don’t mean to be nasty but some are filling in the blanks. @wgnamerica will be releasing an accurate update soon. Please keep prayers coming!”

Beth was diagnosed with stage two throat cancer in early 2017 and a special programme was made for A&E Network.

It focused around her battle called Dog and Beth: Fight of Their Lives which aired on November 27 in 2017.

It included the 13-hour surgery Beth underwent to remove a stage two tumour and the aftermath.

Beth was rushed to hospital on November 27, 2018, to remove a life-threatening blockage in her throat.

The couple returned home to Colorado for Beth’s recovery.

In mid December, 2018, the real,上海品茶会所Louise,ity TV star asked fans to “pray” for his wife after revealing her “incurable” throat cancer had spread to her lungs.

Chapman says wife Beth is “not doing good” but he’s determined to “keep everything positive”.

In an interview with InTouch Weekly at the time, Duane said: “I have to keep faith, I am the leader of the family.”

Then on June 23, Dog took to Twitter and asked his fans: “Please say your prayers for Beth right now thank you love you”.

Who is Dog the Bounty Hunter?

Duane “Dog” Chapman is an American bounty hunter and former bail bondsman.

He was born in February 1953 in Denver, Colorado, USA, and is the eldest of four children

Duane was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to five years in a Texas prison.

He served 18 months. While he was in prison his first wife LaFonda Sue Honeycutt divorced him and married his best friend.

Duane and LaFonda have two children together.

His second wife was Anne Tegnell with whom he had three children, before wedding third wifeLyssa Rae Brittain, who also had three children.

He had no children with fourth wife Tawny Marie before marrying Beth in 2006.

He met Alice Elizabeth “Beth” Barmore in 1986 when she was 19 and they have two children together.

Duane and Beth rose to fame due to his TV show Dog the Bounty Hunter which started in 2004 and ran until 2012.

Copa America 2019: Luis Suarez misses penalty as Uruguay cr Jassirash out in shootout defeat by Peru

Luis Suarez missed in the shootout as fifteen-times Copa America champions Uruguaysuffered a galling quarter-final exit on Saturday to Peru, losing 5-4 on penalties after they had three goals ruled out in a 0-0 draw after 90 minutes.

Suarez spurned the first penalty in the shootout as his shot bounced off the chest of Peru goalkeeper Pedro Gallese, completing a frustrating evening for Uruguay’s all-time top scorer, who also had an effort ruled out for offside.

Every other player converted their spot kicks and Edison Flores sealed unfancied Peru’s place in the last four by blasting past Fernando Muslera.

We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view.

From 15p €0.18 $0.18 USD 0.27 a day, more exclusives, analysis and extras.

Peru will face neighbours Chile in the last four, with tournament hosts Brazil meeting arch rivals Argentina in the other semi-final clash.

“I am very proud. I am speechless,” Peru striker Paolo Guerrero told reporters after scoring in the shootout.

“Lots of people said we don’t have the desire, some people tried to destabilise the squad but we showed what we are capable of on the pitch, we showed we have fighting spirit and courage.

“People said before Uruguay were the favourites but being favourites means nothing in football, especially in South America.”

Uruguay dominated the play dur,上海品茶QQKhalil,ing the game but Giorgian de Arrascaeta, Edinson Cavani and then Suarez all had goals chalked off for offside which were each verified by VAR checks.

They became the third team in this tournament to lose a quarter-final tie on penalties after a goalless draw after Paraguay were beaten by Brazil and Chile beat Colombia on spot-kicks.

There is no extra time in Copa America quarter-finals in the event of a draw, although 30 minutes will be added on in the semi-finals and final if necessary.

Uruguay defender Diego Godin lamented his side’s inability to convert their chances.

“We were just missing a goal, we kept looking for it but it didn’t come and if we had scored it would have been a different game,” he said.

“We played well, but unfortunately we’ve been knocked out. We ,上海品茶工作室Lennon,couldn’t score and they struck their penalties better than we did.”

Uruguay won the Copa America for a record 15th time in 2011 but they have underachieved in their last three appearances, losing to Chile in the last eight in 2015 and exiting in the group stage in 2016.


Derbyshire County Council overturns decision to refuse free school transport for disabled Chesterfield boy 上海品茶QQ who uses wheelchair

Sharon Davis and her son Josh Higginbottom, 10, near their house on Ashgate Road, Brampton. Photo by Eddie Bisknell.

A council has made a U-turn after refusing school transport for a Chesterfield boy who uses a wheelchair for living within ‘walking distance’.

Josh Higginbottom, 10, is a full-time wheelchair user and has a number of speech impediments.

He has asymmetric quadriplegic cerebral palsy which means he has difficulty controlling movement of his arms and legs.

Derbyshire County Council had told Josh’s mother, Sharon Davis, he was not entitled to free school transport from his Brampton home to Ashgate Croft, a special school.

It said that because ‘the distance from your home to the school measures less than the statutory walking distance, there is no entitlement to assistance with transport’.

The Local Democracy Reporting Service (LDRS) walked the route of Josh’s journey to school with him and his mother to gain an insight into how safe and arduous it was.

But now the county council has overturned its decision – although it will not tell Ms Davis or the LDRS why it changed its decision.

A county council spokesperson said: “We don’t comment on individual children’s cases but there is an appeal process for all decisions around provision of transport.

“Original decisions are looked at as part of an appeal and any additional information provided as part of that appeal is also considered. Where appropriate, original decisions may be overturned.”

Ms Davis waived her right to any confidentiality concerning Josh’s case, but the council still said it would not discuss it.

She said: “No reasons were given as to why they have changed their mind.

“It could be because of your article and also the appeals I have made.

“They have not said how the transport will be given to Josh, either through a minibus or taxi, we have no idea.

“My first feeling when I got the letter was relief, but also of frustration that we shouldn’t have to keep fighting for little things like transport – it is just so wrong.”

In response to the article, several charities which specialise in fighting legal battles and special educational needs appeals said they would be willing to campaign on Ms Davis’ behalf for free.

Josh’s route to school, along Ashgate Road, is a,上海品茶QQLennon, busy and treacherous – particularly for a wheelchair-using child.

It involves crossing six busy roads, one of which is the main road, along with the frontage of a petrol station and a Co-op supermarket.

The route is made more arduous because the pavement on the north side of Ashgate Road is too narrow for a wheelchair.

Cars regularly park on the pavement on the south side, potentially blocking Josh’s path.

Travelling on the route with Josh and Sharon took just over 26 minutes to complete.

What seemed to cause the largest problem was the constant uneven paveme,上海品茶微信Kendrick,nt along the way – these require persistent small twitch responses for Josh and wear him out mentally and physically.

Another issue is the wide junctions which Josh must cross – difficult for any child, let alone a wheelchair-using 10-year-old.

The family has a high-tech chair which Josh can operate through a joystick.

However, the chair is heavy and is tiresome for Josh to operate for long periods of time and he often gets cramp in his right hand as a result.

Strict government guidelines dictate children over the age of eight only qualify for free transport if they live more than three miles away from the school.

Meanwhile, children under the age of eight must live more than two miles away from school to qualify.

First picture of pregnant woman stabbed to death in Croydon as baby fights for lif Chaze

This is the first picture of the heavily pregnant woman stabbed to death early on Saturday morning.

Kelly-Mary Fauvrelle, 26, was around eight months pregnant when she was killed in the Thornton Heath area of Croydon, south London.

Her child, believed to be a boy, was delivered at the scene and today remains in hospital in a critical condition.

The Metropolitan Police has launched a murder probe following what a senior detective described as a “horrific incident”.

Officers were called to reports of a woman in cardiac arrest at the address at 3.30am on Saturday.

They arrived with paramedics to find Kelly-Mary suffering from stab injuries at the house.

Kelly-Mary Fauvrelle was believed to have been eight months pregnant when she was killed

“Despite the efforts of paramedics, the victim sadly died at the scene,” the Met Police’s statement said.

A 37-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and is in police custody, with the force stating officers “retain an open mind to any motive”.

On Kelly-Mary’s Facebook page, the proud auntie posted a photo cradling her tiny nephew just two months ago, telling friends she was due to have her own baby in the summer.

A police cordon remained in place last night around the two-storey semi-detached house, with three uniformed officers stationed outside.

Lights could be seen inside the property, which is in a quiet one-way street off London Road near Croydon University Hospital.

The Met’s Homicide and Serious Crime Command are investigating the case, led by Detective Chief Inspector Mick Norman.

He said: “This is a horrific incident in which a young mother has lost her life and her child is critically ill.

“Our sympathies go out to her devastated famil,上海品茶QQEmily,y; they are being supported by specially trained officers following this awful event, and I would ask that they are left alone at this time as they come to terms with the enormity of what has happened.”

The force said the woman’s next-of-kin have been informed.

Reacting to the murder on Twitter, London mayor Sadiq Khan said: “Violence against women is endemic in society and devastating murders in the home, like this one, show the scale of the problem we f,上海品茶会所amantha,ace.

“My prayers are with this innocent child, and with the mother it has so tragically lost.”

Neighbours said that three woman, one of whom was pregnant, lived at the house and they had a small dog.

One neighbour said she had got up at about 3.30am to do her prayers when she heard a dog barking at the house, which is two doors down.

The neighbour, who did not wish to be named, said she was “shocked and surprised” to hear about the attack.

Anyone with any information should contact police on the dedicated Incident Room number of 0208 7214005, or ring 101 quoting CAD 1358/29 Jun or alternatively Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Top alternative games to get your kids Jassiroff Fortnite this summer

THERE is more to life than Fortnite.

Its popularity may be waning, but it’s still the biggest game in the world — but that doesn’t mean it’s the best.

If you’re looking for something else to pick up, or are looking for something to push the Fortnite fan in your life towards to show them that there really is more out there, there are plenty of options.

Whether you want something that replicates the social side, the creative aspect or even a games that scratches the competitive itch, you’ve got plenty of options out there.

Some of the options are a little more grown-up than Fornite, and some are only suitable for those a little bit older, but there is plenty out there for everyone.

If you happen to be trying to pry a teen off Fortnite, then a higher-rated game might be what you need – and it’s important to know why certain games have the ratings they do so you can pick the right thing.

Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Nintendo Switch – PEGI 12+

Breath of the Wild is about as far away from Fortnite as it’s possible to get, which still ticking a lot of the same boxes.

It’s got a rich, bright and compelling world, fast-paced combat and a great story that should keep anyone hooked.

Unlike Fortnite, it’s offline and single player – which means it can be paused when something else needs attention, and you can come back to it whenever you like without losing any progress.

It’s also challenging, and the world is full of varied challenges to fit your mood at any given moment.

There are hours of play here too. The main story takes up at least 40 hours, and then there’s another 60 or so to get lost in if you want to explore every nook and cranny, pick up every weapon, and complete every challenge.

There’s also a sequel coming next year that is sure to be every bit as good, so if you haven’t played it yet now’s definitely the time to get stuck in.

It being a single-player experience means that it doesn’t have the social side that Fortnite does – but that also means it works just fine if you happen to be off somewhere where there’s no Internet but have taken the Switch with you.

Crash Team Racing: Nitro Fuelled

Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4 – PEGI 3+

This is a game that covers the competitive and social sides of Fortnite, but in a different way.

As well as online action you can also do four-player local split-screen races, so it’s something everyone can enjoy when sat in the room together gathered around the same telly.

If you don’t know CTR from the first around – it was a PlayStation era classic – it was basically Sony’s answer to Mario Kart.

It’s a similar manic kart racer, where you pick one of a host of familiar characters to race around different game-inspired landscapes.

The reboot is everything old-school Crash fans wanted, and everything people new to it could want too.

It’s easy to pick up, and with plenty of tricks, shortcuts and underhand tactics to pick up there’s always room for improvement after every loss.

That means it never becomes frustrating in quite the same way as Fortnite – you’ve always got a full race to pull things back from a poor start, and even a really close loss is much less likely to fuel the urge to chuck a controller across the room.

Sea of Thieves

Xbox One and PC – PEGI 12+

Sea of Thieves is a truly amazing game that anyone should spend some with.

Like Fortnite it’s set in an open world of free-for-all combat with everyone starting on equal footing, and it’s best enjoyed with a bunch of mates.

It’s set in one huge world of swash-buckling adventure with treasure to be found, giant sharks to fight off and stories to be told.

While it does now have some of its own traditional story content, which is great, it’s at its best when you’re exploring the world, having your own adventures and effectively writing your own stories.

It’s a living world too, so you’ll quickly find your best-laid plans can quickly come to naught as you get waylaid by a Kraken or spot a Megalodon you all decide you really need to take down.

Rare’s slightly wonky world of pirates and skullduggery is suitable for everyone, and has a great community around it.

There’s fun to be had however you play it, but there’s really nothing quite like setting sail in a four-person galleon and seeing what awaits on the high seas.

You’re forced to work as a team by the game’s mechanics – if you want to get your galleon going, you’ll need to have someone at the wheel as the rest of you rush around between the sails, the map chart and the ship’s cannon or harpoon guns.

Take on water and you’ll all be rushing around madly trying to bale your ship out and fix whatever holes there are.

All of that is surprisingly intuitive and easy to pick up, because everything in the world works just how you’d expect it to.

That means it’s great to get started with, but also really easy to bring new players into.

The varied nature of the world and community means it is suited for all ages too – so it can actually work really well as a family experience.

It also has the benefit of being included with Xbox Game Pass, which has a £1 trial offer through the new Xbox Game Pass Ultimate package.

That means anyone who wants to play it can jump in if they have a subscription – and those that don’t just have to drop a quid to try it out.

If you’re getting Game Pass for a family console, though, it’s more important than ever to set up parental controls to make sure that the 18+ rated games in there are fenced off from those who shouldn’t be playing them.

Rather than trying to break the Fortnite habit in one go, you might have more success with some little stand-alone games that will only take up a few hours or days, but give a taste of quite how creative some other games can be.

There are so many of these out there, it can be very hard to pick one – and as with all games, there’s no guarantee of quality either.

So we’ve picked out three of the best you can get today that show off different sides of gaming, but are good enough to engage practically anyone.

Cadence of Hyrule

Nintendo Switch – PEGI 3+

Yes, it’s another Zelda game – but,上海品茶会所Christopher, not really.

Cadence of Hyrule – Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda to give it its full name is rhythm-action game, where everything is done to the beat of the game’s amazing soundtrack.

Effectively a remix of Crypt of the NecroDancer, Cadence is one of 2019’s most creative and surprising little games.

It can be challenging at times, but the combination of combat to the rhythm of the enchanting tunes, the world of Zelda and the satisfaction that comes from beating that challenge makes it well worth it.

Again, it’s also a single-player experience that can be enjoyed offline and paused if something else comes up.


Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4, PC – PEGI 7+

A gorgeous and award-winning platformer that makes you think in all manner of different ways.

The hero needs to beat her inner demons to ascend the mountain and finish the game, and there are hidden challenges for the hardiest of adventurers.

The musical score deserves as much praise here as it does for Cadence of Hyrule

It adds up to a perfectly crafted experience that will make you realise exactly how good platformers can be.

There are plenty of others out there too – Cuphead, Return of the Obra Dinn and What Remains of Edith Finch to name a few.

Some to graduate to

There is a wide world of games out there suitable for people of all ages, and all with ratings to help guide things along.

Those who have been playing the 12+ rated Fortnite for a while are probably of the age where 16+ games are starting to become appropriate.

Quite a few of them feature huge worlds, both online and off, that will blow the mind of anyone who has only really experienced life in the confines of Fortnite’s battle royale island.

Like 15 movies, 16+ games can be something of a grey area.

While 18+ games are very rarely suitable for anyone under that age the huge gap between 12+ and 16+ means that there is room for personal judgment.

So while the likes of GTA and Red Dead Redemption are definitely out, 16+ opens up a huge range of slightly less grisly and morally dubious games you might,上海品茶QQEmily, want to allow.

Anthony J Jassiroshua blasted as ‘hypocrite’ for promoting sugar-filled Lucozade drink

DEPOSED heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua has been blasted as a “hypocrite” for promoting a sugar-rich energy drink.

Just weeks after losing all his world titles to Andy Ruiz Jr in one of boxing’s biggest ev,上海品茶工作室Christopher,er shocks, the 29-year-old has taken another hit.

Joshua has teamed up with drinks giant Lucozade and has his picture along with his slogan “Be Humble” on the apple and raspberry flavour Fruit Punch.

But despite the Watford-born boxer being a gym obsessive and even cutting out coffee and sugar, the drink contains a whopping 18.5g of sugar.

That is the equivalent of four-and-a-half teaspoons. The NHS recommends a maximum of 30g of sugar a day, around seven teaspoons.

Tam Fry the chairm,上海品茶QQDavey,an of the campaign group the National Obesity Forum, pulled no punches in his criticism of the athlete.

He told the Daily Star: “Mr Joshua, as well as being a hypocrite, is irresponsible.

“Sports personalities andcelebrities have a huge responsibility to their fans when promoting anything injurious totheir health.”


But Lucozade Sport claimed that they are big supporters in getting everybody active.

A spokesman said: “We do not condone or encourage excessive consumption of sugar.

“We use our brand to encourage exercise.

“Our Made to Move campaigns – including thosefeaturing Anthony Joshua – have inspired over 1.5 million people to exercise in the last two years alone.”

SunSport reported last year how AJ took the decision to ditch sugar from his diet to maintain a perfect mental health balance.

The former world heavyweight boxing champion acknowledged the impact unhealthy food and drink can have on his mood in the build-up to a fight.


Of that decision, he said at the time: “Try to keep a good balance. That is the main key. Aim to keep balanced.

“I tried to stop drinking coffee as well because you spike and then you fall. It’s a big downer.

“Keep a balance across the whole board in your day-to-day life. Cut out sugar, it spikes you up.

“Diet is a massive issue when it comes to mental health, you don’t realise it.

“Not only what you are digesting with your food. But what you listen to and what you watch.


Tesco recalls cheese burgers be 上海品茶会所cause of undeclared sesame

TESCO is recalling cheese ,上海品茶QQEdith,burgers as they may contain sesame, which has not been declared on the label.

The supermarket has said that the burgers could pose a health risk to anyone with a sesame allergy.

The burgers may contain sesame both on and in the buns and have been sold throughout the UK and Ireland.

The product being recalled is Tesco’s Two British Cheese Burgers with Buns with use by dates of June 28, 29 and 30 2019 and July 1, 3 and 4 2019.

The packets weigh 469g.

No other Tesco products are known to be affected by the recall.

As well as recalling the burgers, Tesco have contacted the relevant allergy support organisations, so they can tell their members about the issue.

The company has also issued a point-of-sale notice to its customers, which explains to customers why the product is being recalled and tells them what to do if they have bought the product.

If you have bought the burgers and have an allergy to sesame the Food Standards Agency is warning that you should not eat it.

Instead, you can return it to the store from where it was bought for a full refund.

Tesco has said you do not need a receipt to get your money back.

Tesco said it “apologised to customers for any inconvenience caused”.

If you have further questions you can call Tesco customer services on 0800 505 55.

In Ireland you will need to call 11850 744 844.

Tesco also posted about the recall on its Facebook page, but customers condemned the company for saying it was a “quick announcement”.

Tesco’s post read: “Quick announcement – there’s a potential sesame allergen issue with some of our Tesco 2 British beef cheese burgers with buns (469g).

“If you have a sesame allergy and have recently purchased this product, or would like any additional information, you can find out more here”

Tara Rooney-Bell commented: “Tesco this isn’t a “quick” announcement type of thing… it’s an URGENT RECALL type of thing.”

Rachel Sara added: ““Quick announcement” ??? Tesco how about URGENT! Words fail me. You have lost my custom.”

And Bobbie Kristina said: “This should not just be a ‘quick announcement’. “Are you actually aware of the severity of food allergies?! A reaction can be fatal! “This ,上海品茶工作室Luke,needs to be highlighted UK wide so any and all allergy sufferers are aware of it! “It may take someone a bit longer to complete that task than it is to pop this ‘quick announcement’ on Facebook but do you really want a potential fatality to come from this?!”

The Sun has asked Tesco for a comment and will update this article if the supermarket responds.

Miguel Almiron gives Newcastle U Jassirnited fans positive message after Real Madrid links

Miguel Almiron has insisted he is focused on nothing but playing for Newcastle United – despite rumours he may quit the club after just six months.

Almiron shone in the tournament in Brazil but his Paraguay side were knocked out of the competition on penalties this week.

When asked specifically about the links with Real Madrid, Almiron, speaking to ABC TV, said: “I don’t know anything about it.

Boris Johnson vows borrowing binge to slash taxes and ramp up spending if h 上海品茶微信e becomes PM

BORIS Johnson today pledged to go on a borrowing splurge in order to slash taxes and ramp up public spending.

The,上海品茶微信Selim, frontrunner for No10 insisted he would be able to find the cash to increase spending on schools, transport and the police without taking more from taxpayers.

And he denied trying to “have his cake and eat it” by reducing tax at the same time as reversing public spending cuts.

Mr Johnson told Sky: “There are plenty of taxes that you can cut which will actually increase your revenues and t,上海品茶QQKendrick,here are ways of making sure that you can stimulate growth, you stimulate enterprise and you get more in.

“But what is certainly true is at the moment there is cash available.”

He suggested his tax plans – which would see lower income tax for high earners, and a cut in national insurance contributions by the lower-paid – would pay for themselves by stimulating the economy.

Asked if he was prepared to increase the public debt, BoJo replied: “If it’s borrowing to finance great infrastructure projects and there is an opportunity to borrow at low rates and do things for the long term benefit of the country then we should do them.”

Lionel Messi and Argentina still a threat to Brazil despite poor form, says JonathanThiago Silva

Lionel Messi has not been at his best at the Copa America but Brazil defender Thiago Silva says his side will not take their eyes off the Argentina captain for a minute in their semi-final on Tuesday.

“He is the best player in the world and he still could spring to life,” Silva told a news conference on Saturday ahead of the first Copa meeting between the sides since the 2007 final, which Brazil won 3-0.

“It’s a privilege to be able to face him again and we’ll have to try and put the brakes on him.”

Messi has scored once in the tournament — from the penalty spot — and has acknowledged he is not playing at his usual level. He had only three shots during his side’s 2-0 win over Venezuela in the quarter-finals, none of which hit the target.

“The truth is I’m not having my best Copa America, it’s always very difficult for us because we want to do something different and attack and teams pack out the middle of the pitch,” he said.

“No one is giving anything away cheaply in this Copa, it’s very difficult to play because the pitches are very bad, it’s shameful. The ball is like a rabbit, it can go anywhere and you can’t dribble.”

Argentina winger Angel di Maria says Messi is working hard for the team even if he is not making it onto the scoresheet.

“We are used to seeing him score goals but Leo is doing very well, he is running a lot, he is working hard,” he said.

“He knows more than anyone that at this Copa America the first thing you need to do is run, then you can think about the rest, playing well and scoring.”

Cannonballs, skulls and jewellery: Archaeologists discover 'B Jonathanronze Age relics' in Edinburgh city centre, delaying Richard Branson's new hotel

The opening of Sir Richard Branson‘s first Virgin Hotel in Britain has been delayed by a yearafter archaeologists at the site unearthed artefacts dating back 1,000 years.

The excavation in Edinburgh has lasted more than a year, three times longer than expected, due to the range of objects and material discovered from the 10th century.

Experts say the remains of buildings found predate Edinburgh Castle and the creation of the town burgh by David Iby around 200 years.

We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view.

From 15p €0.18 $0.18 USD 0.27 a day, more exclusives, analysis and extras.

The work has also unearthed ditches and walls marking the original boundary of the city and some of the discoveries could date as far back as the Bronze Age.

The findings are expected to become a major selling point of a stay in Sir Richard’s first hotel in the UK, which will boast 225 rooms and create more than 300 jobs.

During a 60 week excavation a human skull, a drinking vessel, shoes, jewellery, and knives, along with a ball used in a giant catapult and an early cannonball were discovered at the Cowgate site.

Hearths, wall panel, structural timbers, rubbish pits and wells have been unearthed during the dig, which took around three times longer than initially anticipated by the Virgin team working on the project.

The plans for the hotel at the India Buildings on Victoria Street and an adjacent gap site were announced in February of last year, with a 2020 opening date.

But Virgin Hotels said work would finally begin at the site “within weeks,” with the aim of the hotel now opening in 2021.

Edinburgh City Council archaeologist, John Lawson said: “This has been one of the most significant urban excavations ever undertaken in Scotland.

“We have found everything we could have probably hoped to find on an excavation like this – there was basically 1,000 years of archaeology on the site.

“The full analysis and research has still to be done, but the results of the work have been tremendous, in terms of scale and quality, and the quality of preservation is outstanding.

“For the first time ever, we have found a series of buildings which pre-date the formation of the medieval town in the 12th century.

“There are a great sequence of layers on the site which almost tell the story of Edinburgh in microcosm.”

Raul Leal, chief executive of Virgin Hotels, said: “We always knew India Buildings was a special place and a very special development, though I’m not sure we could have guessed just how amazing it really is.

“A unique insight has been gained into life in Edinburgh and the city’s development over nearly 1,000 years.

“We will look at ways we can inform our guests of the rich history beneath the rooms in which they sleep.”

The building of thenew hotel close toEdinburgh’s historic Grassmarkethas proven highly controversial, and has been met with criticism from a heritage watchdog and high-profileprotests, led by a group calledLet There Be Light.

In May 2018, 19 notable writers, artists and academics wrote a letter toThe Times, denouncing the enterprise as “asset stripping”.


Wildlife Economies Summit ends with new comm Chazitments to nature-based tourism

Gabon and Zimbabwe this week announced their commitment to attracting more tourists to their national parks through securing investment that will help support wildfire protection and the local communities.

The proposals were announced at the close of the African Union and UN Environment Africa Wildlife Economy Summit in Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, attended by the presidents of Zimbabwe, Botswana, Zambia, and Namibia, and ministerial delegations from more than 12 African countries.

Both countries will be partnering with the international conservation body Space for Giants to implement the charity’s Conservation Investment Initiatives. In Zimbabwe, Space for Giants – which The Independent supports in its conservation work – will be working hand-in-hand with the African Wildlife Foundation and the World Bank on the process.

We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view,上海品茶微信Elsa,.

From 15p €0.18 $0.18 USD 0.27 a day, more exclusives, analysis and extras.

The steps undertaken in both countries will be based on Space for Giant’s Uganda pilot, which is on course to unlock $60m of business investment into the country in less than two years, and will be guided by the Conservation Investment Toolkit that Space for Giants launched at the same Summit a day earlier.

The Toolkit guides African governments to attract responsible tourism businesses to invest in protected areas under transparent contracts designed to increase socio-economic development while also bringing new money to fund conservation.

Announcing the Zimbabwe initiative at the Summit, Alistair Pole, AWF’s Senior Director for East and Southern Africa, said: “We’re very proud that between Space for Giants, the World Bank and African Wildlife Foundation, we’ve been requested by the Government of Zimbabwe through the Ministry of Environment, to carry out a similar process in Zimbabwe.

“We’ll be starting as soon as possible, aiming to bring the right kind of investment into Zimbabwe, into the tourism space but also into public-private partnerships and public-private-community partnerships as well.”

Both the Zimbabwe and the Gabon processes are expected to launch officially with Conservation Investment Forums during 2020, the Summit’s 450 delegates heard. That will be after significant work to scope investment sites and streamline business processes.

Unlike Zimbabwe, where there is a long-established tourism industry, in Gabon international visitor numbers are low despite extraordinary natural assets including populations of forest elephants estimated at more than 50,000.

“The potential for nature-based tourism is huge in Gabon, but there’s a time window which is not infinite and I think we’ve absolutely picked the right time to embark on this journey,” said Noureddin Bongo, Space for Giants’ represent,上海品茶会所Dorian,ative in Gabon.

“Space for Giants can bring its experience from Uganda to start the same discussions between the private sector and government, so that investors feel secure enough to invest their money.

“In the end, with increased benefits from conservation, Gabon’s people find their interests aligned with the government’s and conservationists, while our rainforest is protected, our economy diversifies from oil and manganese, and we protect our elephants.”

The Conservation Investment Initiative is designed to bring new private capital to conservation areas so they can earn African governments significantly increased revenue, while also providing jobs, buying from local suppliers, and protecting ecosystems.

“We strongly believe that the right type of nature-based tourism done in the right areas in a sustainable fashion is a powerful conservation tool,” said Oliver Poole, Executive Director of Space for Giants’ Giants Club.

“That’s because it creates jobs for the local community, and it brings visitors to the national parks, creating money for wildlife services, that often have limited budgets. But it also starts building a nature-based tourism sector that pays taxes and builds economies, making them of national importance and therefore more likely to be protected.”

Rugby had its teething problems with video technology to 上海品茶QQo but football must persist with VAR

Having never really watched a women’s football game before, I am pleasantly surprised at how good the World Cup is.

I watch women’s rugby on occasions and enjoy that so thought I would give the football a go. I have enjoyed immensely the little bits I have seen.

It may not be as fast paced intensity wise as the men’s game, but it certainly has some real quality and will continue to improve for sure.

It’s good to see the size of t,上海品茶工作室Lennon,he view,上海品茶微信Linda,ing figures as well as it shows people are enjoying watching it. It helps with inclusiveness and diversity in sport when you have a product which is good that people will watch.

The more who enjoy it, the bigger it will become and the support will grow. It’s the same for women’s rugby and other sports.

There are plenty of things on television, so watch something else. That’s one thing that annoys me sometimes, when you hear people complaining about a TV programme that millions of others enjoy, just because they don’t.

The World Cup hasn’t been without its controversies, especially when it comes to VAR. Scotland’s goalkeeper Lee Alexander stopped a penalty against Argentina, but it was retaken after VAR judged her to be off her line.

Rugby has had teething issues with the TMO and there are still problems where officials or the video ref get things wrong, so understandably it takes getting used to for everyone involved when you bring technology in for the first time. Especially when so many decisions are a matter of interpretation, or the individual’s opinion.

When you have a decision, in football or rugby, against the team you support then you may not like it. But if VAR gets it right then the technology has done its job, that’s what it’s there for.

It should be about correcting clear and obvious decisions which a match official has got wrong, or when it is humanly impossible for them to see it any other way on the field in a split second.

Let’s be honest, how many of you watching at home only see the mistake differently after you have watched it again on slow motion replay from a different camera angle.

This is what the TMO and VAR are there for, to help officials and advise the match referee, who will always have the final say, that a decision may need to be overturned, or confirming it was the right call.

Read More

If we stick to that principle it will add to the excitement of the game and help the official make the correct decision and lead to the correct outcome of the game. After all that’s what we want isn’t it? The correct decision given, especially match winning ones.

Or do you just want the right decision when it affects your team? The passion for sport… or shall we call it one-eyed passion!

The one extra thing I’d like VAR used for is when it comes to foul play, especially around players’ unacceptable behaviour, no matter what the sport.

It was disappointing to see the behaviour of the Cameroon footballers in their game against England. It was totally unacceptable, especially as a number of the decisions they were complaining about were proved by VAR to be the correct ones. So instead of everyone talking about the football, everyone is talking about the negative side of the players’ behaviour.

I was listening to a debate about it on the radio and a Cameroon football reporter refused to criticise the team for their behaviour, saying they were passionate and they wanted to win and progress to the next round so much.

Don’t all teams? That’s no excuse.

It’s important that kind of behaviour is called out. The Cameroon Football Association, as well as FIFA, should have said that whilst they understood the players’ frustrations, this is not the sort of behaviour we condone in a match and that it would be dealt with appropriately.

Read More

People don’t want to see that kind of behaviour. The referee got most of the decisions correct but I would have liked to have seen her deal with the Cameroon players in a firmer way, although that’s a trend throughout football really.

When you want to grow the women’s game and you want to get an even bigger audience, it’s important you have the right image.

Rugby had to deal with a lot of violence on the field in the past. There are still instances of it happening today at local levels as well as at the top occasionally, but on the whole that has been stamped out over the years.

Football needs to stamp out what we saw from the Cameroon team. It’s not the image we want to see in order to get more people involved in the game. Phil Neville had a point when he said that young girls all over the world would be watching that behaviour.

It’s good to see women refereeing the women’s game too. In order for the game to grow and female officiating to grow, it is right they get the opportunity at the top of the game. It seems to me they already have a decent number of referees to officiate at that level and the same goes for rugby, with the likes of Joy Neville who officiated the Women’s World Cup final in Belfast a few years ago and is now in the Pro 14 and a European final.

Hopefully we will get to the stage when it is not something that is a talking point any more and everybody is appointed to officiate matches based on their ability. Equality means equality, if you’re good enough then you get the opportunity.

Read More

There has been a debate about getting male referees in for the rest of the World Cup but they have enough quality officials there and they will keep learning from this experience. That’s how they will grow the pool.

The only way you will improve as a referee, or know if someone has got what it takes to get to the very top, is to give them the opportunities out there on the field on the big stage.

I’m sure the referee in charge of Cameroon v England will learn from the match and won’t put up with that kind of nonsense again. She got most of the decisions correct and the best team won.

FIFA needs to back up their referees and make sure teams or individual players are dealt with if they don’t behave appropriately.

Fu 上海品茶微信ry from Democrats after Donald Trump Jr attacks Kamala Harris over her race

SenatorKamala Harris, one of only two black presidential candidates in a field of two dozen, had a history-making moment on the debate stage on Thursday night when she challenged former vice president Joe Biden over racial issues.

But as the reaction to her debate performance poured in, so did the racist attacks on social media, where some accused the California Democrat of not being black enough, and others suggested she was not really American.

On Twitter, some commenters suggested Ms Harris was unfairly portraying herself as African American, since she is the daughter of a Jamaican father and an Indian mother.

We’ll ,上海品茶工作室Natalie,tell you what’s true. You can form your own view.

From 15p €0.18 $0.18 USD 0.27 a day, more exclusives, analysis and extras.

By Saturday, Ms Harris’s campaign spokeswoman had retweeted nearly a dozen comments and articles defending her boss, and Ms Harris’s 2020 Democratic challengers forcefully condemned the attacks on social media.

“This stuff is really vile and everyone should speak out against it,” Lily Adams, Ms Harris’s spokeswoman, wrote on Twitter.

“The attacks against @KamalaHarris are racist and ugly,” SenatorElizabeth Warren tweeted shortly after.

“We all have an obligation to speak out and say so. And it’s within the power and obligation of tech companies to stop these vile lies dead in their tracks.”

“@KamalaHarris doesn’t have s***to prove,” tweeted SenatorCory Booker.

Washington Governor Jay Inslee called the attacks “racist and vile”.

Minnesota SenatorAmy Klobuchar wrote: “These troll-fuelled racist attacks on Senator @KamalaHarris are unacceptable. We are better than this (Russia is not) and stand united against this type of vile behaviour.”

Caroline Orr, a behavioural scientist who studies the spread of disinformation online, noted on Twitter a surge of related anti-Harris tweets that posted within minutes of each other during the debate.

“Efforts to attack Kamala Harris’ race have been around for a while, but a huge volume of tweets pushing this manufactured narrative appeared tonight right after Kamala pointed out that she was the only Black woman onstage,” Ms Orr wrote, with images of the tweets questioning Harris’ racial credentials.

At Thursday’s debate, Ms Harris told Mr Biden that his past stance against federally-mandating bussing black students to white schools was personally hurtful because she had benefited from that educational opportunity as a little girl.

Afterward, some people on social media falsely claimed that Ms Harris couldn’t lay claim to the afflictions of African Americans.

President Donald Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jrretweeted, and then deleted, an alt-right commentator named Ali Alexander, stating:“Kamala Harris is implying she is descended from American Black Slaves. She’s not. She comes from Jamaican Slave Owners. That’s fine. She’s not an American Black. Period.”

In sharing that message to his millions of followers, Mr Trump Jrtweeted: “Is this true? Wow.”

“This is the same type of racist attacks his father used to attack Barack Obama,” Ms Adams toldThe Washington Post. “It didn’t work then and it won’t work now.”

Two of Ms Harris’s Democratic primary opponents reacted to Trump Jr’s comment.

Donald Trump Jr says his family has lived an ‘incredible immigrant story’

Bernie Sanderstweeted: “Donald Trump Jris a racist too. Shocker.”

South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg wrote: “The presidential competitive field is stronger because Kamala Harris has been powerfully voicing her Black American experience. Her first-generation story embodies the American dream. It’s long past time to end these racist, birther-style attacks.”

Other fringe social media accounts echoed the birtherism conspiracies fuelled by Donald Trump before he was in politics regarding President Barack Obama’s citizenship.

Now they are questioning whether Harris was eligible to run for president, calling her an “anchor baby” because she was born in the United States to immigrants.

Ms Harris is the daughter of an Indian mother and a Jamaican father.

When she’s asked how she identifies herself, Ms Harris will often say, as “an American.”

But recently, she’s leaned in more to what it meant to grow up black in the wake of the civil rights movement – she was born in October 1964, just months after the Civil Rights Act had been signed into law.

At a recent campaign event sponsored by Planned Parenthood, Ms Harris spoke about growing up and realising that people treated her mother with less respect because of the colour of her skin.

“I remember people looking down at my mother, assuming she was somebody’s housekeeper and treating her like she was a substandard person,” Ms Harris said.

“She was a housekeeper, she kept our house, and happened to be a breast cancer researcher. There was an assumption that this woman had no power and should be given no power.”

“I realise now that I made a decision at a young age,” she said, “that I’m not going to let anybody do that to anybody else.”

Evidence which ‘proves’ labourer hanged for murder 81 years Jassir ago was innocent

It was 54 years ago that the death penalty was abolished in Britain, after public opinion turned against the ultimate form of punishment, fearing that innocent people were being sent to the gallows.

Among the cases which swung feelings was that of Derek Bentley, who was hanged for the murder of a policeman – but won a posthumous pardon in 1998, 45 years after he was hanged in 1953.

But there could now be another case to be added to the li,上海品茶微信Khalil,st of Brits who were executed for crimes they didn’t commit.

On May 26, 1938, Robert Hoolhouse was hanged on the scaffold in Durham after being found guilty of the rape and murder of a farmer’s wife.

The labourer, who had just turned 21, died protesting his innocence right up until his last breath.

Now, however, historians who have reexamined his case have concluded that Robert’s conviction was just as dubious as others who faced the hangman’s noose and were later declared innocent.

The vicious murder gripped the community with fear
Read More

And many now believe his death was yet another miscarriage of justice which proves that the death penalty should never be allowed to return in the UK.

It was on January 18, 1938 that the village of Wolviston, Stockton-on-Tees, was shocked by the discovery of the body of Margaret Dobson, on a cart track leading to her home at High Grange Farm.

The 67-year-old wife of farmer Henry had been raped and then “severely battered” before being stabbed twice – once in the chest and once in the neck.

The murder gripped the community, with women so scared of the vicious murdered they would not leave their homes alone and children were kept indoors.

Mr Dobson had last seen her wife and mother of their three children earlier that day when they had shared a tea of beef sandwiches at around 3pm.

She then left the house to visit her sister in Hartlepool, walking along the cart track through field to the main road to catch her bus.

She was known to wear old boots on the muddy track and then change into a smarter pair of shoes before boarding.

But on this day Mrs Dobson never made it to the main road.

When she hadn’t returned that evening, Mr Dobson waited at the bus stop until the final bus had passed by at 11pm, then walked home and had a sleepless night.

The next morning he found his wife’s body dumped in one of his fields.

The North Eastern Gazette reported: “In the morning the animals had to be fed and work had to be done,” reported the North Eastern Gazette.

“He started his work at about 5am. Somewhere between 7am and 8am men arrived to thrash his corn.

“At about 10am, after completing his work, he set out to make inquiries.

“He took a short cut to Wolviston through some fields. Something prompted him to look back.

“He saw something on the ground he could not understand and found the body of his wife lying on her back with head towards the farm and her feet toward the main road.”

An autopsy found that the mum-of-three died within an hour and a half of eating her tea.

As police swarmed into Wolviston and the brutal murder made newspaper front pages, Durham County Constabulary released a statement saying they wanted to speak to a man aged around 30 with the appearance of a farm worker and had been seen on a bike in the area.

The next day 20-year-old Robert William Hoolhouse was arrested and charged with Mrs Dobson’s murder.

The police had based their belief that he was the murderer on an incident that had happened three years earlier, when the Hoolhouse family had been working on the Dobsons’ farm and lived in a cottage on the land.

But following an argument Mr Dobson sacked them and thew them off the land, warning them never to return.

At the time of his arrest, police also noted marks on Robert’s face which he blamed on “a spill he had with his bicycle”, while he blamed blood on the cuffs of his shirt on a shaving cut.

Read More

His trial later heard that the scratches could have be caused as Mrs Dobson tried to defend herself.

Police also claimed the timings of Robert’s alibis on the day the farmer’s wife died didn’t tally with the statements given by people he said he had been with.

However, other evidence and the statements of other witnesses which later emerged throw more than a little doubt on his guilt.

One, Margaret Barker, said she had travelled on the same bus as Robert had taken to go to the pictures at 6pm on January 18, which would have been after Mrs Dobson had been murdered.

But she said she hadn’t noticed any scratches to his face.

Perhaps even more importantly, when Margaret had been found she was still wearing heavy wooden gloves.

The police had experimented with these gloves, trying to cause similar scratches on a volunteer’s face. A secretary with long nails was unable to inflict the slightest wound.

The other witness was Doris Teale, who lived next to the Hoolhouses, and said she had seen Robert standing outside his house at the time he was supposed to be murdering Mrs Dobson.

Even more conclusive was the footprint evidence. Henry Dobson had stepped around the body and his prints were clearly seen.

Other prints, presumably from the killer, were underneath Henry’s. Plaster casts of those prints had been made, but they did not match any of Robert’s footwear.

And the description of a man seen at the farm at around 5pm on the night of the murder was also at odds with the young labourer’s appearance and the clothes he had been wearing that day.

Finally, there was the fact that no semen stains were found on Robert’s clothing, despite extensive stains being found on Margaret’s.

Robert was executed the famous hangman Thomas Pierrepoint
Read More

Despite the cast contradictory evidence, though, police were convinced they had the right man.

At his trial at Leeds Assizes Court, prosecutor Mr Paley-Scott KC described the brutality of the crime.

He said: “You will hear that whoever it was who had attacked her had battered with his fists into insensibility or, at any rate, into a state in which she, a woman 67 years of age, was no longer able to resist and had then ravished her and, one would suppose, had then decided to kil,上海品茶会所Rashid,l the only witness of his deed.”

Robert was found guilty by a jury after four hours and sentenced to death.

Following the conviction an appeal was launched back with a petition of 14,000 signatures, but the last-ditch attempt to save him was rejected.

Protesting his innocent to the end, Robert was hanged at Durham by famous executioner Thomas Pierrepoint.

Years later, his father reportedly made a deathbed confession that it was he who was responsible for Mrs Dobson’s murder.

But he was not seen around the murder scene and it was thought he was making an attempt to posthumously clear his son.

Yet another night of bloodshed in London as man is stabbed to dea Jassirth in Newham


HORROR in the capital as yet another person dies following a fatal stabbing in Newham, east London.

Later that evening a man and woman were stabbed near Manor House in Hackney following an unprecedented number of knife attacks in the capital this year, that is steadily still rising.

Police were called to the Junction of Ron Leighton Way and Wakefield Street in East Ham, ,上海品茶工作室Anika,Newham on Saturday night where a man in his late twenties was pronounced dead at the scene from knife wounds.

Although the identity of the man is yet to be released publicly, police have notified his next of kin.

A murder investigation has been launched, and the Met police are urging anyone with information to come forward.

Later that evening a man and woman were also stabbed near to Hackney, with the separate incidents occurring just hours after a pregnant woman was tragically stabbed to death in Croydon in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Her baby was miraculously delivered by paramedics on the scene and is currently in hospital in a critical condition.


According to reports, a 17-year old was also stabbed this weekend after a fight broke out in Blackgrove Crescent, Eastcote on Friday night.

The teenager is currently hospitalised, in a stable condition.

Knife crime numbers continue to rise in London as some 340,000 Londoners move away from the capital to escape the deadly epidemic.

Countrywide, there were 40,577 offences involving a knife or a sharp object recorded by police in 2018 – that’s 10,000 more than in 2011.

Knife crime numbers have steadily risen for five years now, with the death toll in London alone to be around 65 with dozens more hospitalised and fighting for their lives.

On May 17 of this year, the BBC released the names and faces of the first 100 fatal stabbing victims of 2019 – the youngest being 14-year old Jaden Moodie who was stabbed around eight times in a “frenzied attack” in east London.

The stabbings this weekend follow grime artist Stormzy donning a stab-proof vest painted with a Union Jack by none other than Banksy himself for his Glastonbury headliner per,上海品茶微信Arielle,formance.


Youssouf Mulumbu released by Celtic as Neil Lennon confir Jonathanms exit

Youssouf Mulumbu has been released by Celtic after a disappointing year at t,上海品茶QQConnor,he club.

Neil Lennon confirmed the midfielder’s exit with the Hoops activating a break clause in the contract signed last summer.

Mulumbu was signed by Brendan Rodgers but played just three times in all competitions, and just once in the league.

He was then sent out on loan to Kilmarnock for the second half of the season and is currently with DR Congo at the African Cup of Nations.

But he won’t be returning to Celtic Park after Lennon admitted he had been released and will look for a new club.

Lennon told the Mail on Sunday: “Mulumbu is a free. He is away, so there is no future for him here.”

Meanwhile, Vakoun Issouf Bayo has opened up on the difficulties of his first six months in Glasgow but insists he’s ready to kickstart his Celtic career.

The Ivorian striker played just once in his first few months at the club after joining in a £2m move in January.

He immediately fell behind loan duo Timo Weah and Oli Burke in the pecking order and a hamstring injury then ended his season early.

“I came in January but I did not get a chance to start any games because the team was winning every game. The coach could not change the team in those circumstances, so I understood why I was not starting.

“Then the manager changed and I got injured.

“It was a hamstring tear. Straight away it felt ver,上海品茶会所Kendrick,y bad so after just 10 minutes I had to leave the field. I came back to Glasgow and had no chance to impress the new manager but the most important thing is I am still here and enjoying it.”

DWP b 上海品茶微信lunder leaves woman with just 47p to live on after hospital stay

A woman was left with just 47p after a blunder meant her benefits were stopped while she was in hospital.

Melanie Forrest, 56, was stunned when her Personal Independence Payment (Pip) was suspended for two months, branding it “appalling”.

DWP bosses have apologised for the mix-up, which happened because of a mix-up over dates.

Melanie spent four days in hospital for a hip replacement.

A stay of more than 28 days halts Pip payments, but DWP officials jumped the gun.

“They have admitted a mistake with the dates and that they owe me about £600 or £700, which is probably £800 now,” she said. “It’s just appalling.”

She has branded the situation “appalling” (Image:

Melanie went into hospital for a hip replacement at the end of April and was discharged after four days.

She claims there was a mix-up about the amount of time she spent in hospital.

Because the payment had not ,上海品茶工作室Rashid,gone into her account, she said she was not able to pay bills on time.

“Apparently they thought I was in for 28 days,” said Melanie.

“The payment just suddenly stopped. They don’t realise that people rely on that money.”

She added: “I used to work for the NHS before I got osteoarthritis. I would love to go back to work in the hospital but I physically can’t do it.

Mr Johnson and Tory leadership rival Jerem,上海品茶QQMaurice,y Hunt are both to bring in new negotiating teams to develop a new Brexit blueprint. Cheers erupted at the leadership hustings in Manchester last night after it was revealed that Olly Robbins had left his post as Brexit negotiator. Jeremy Hunt has acquired the talents of senior Canadian politicians, while Boris Johnson enlisted hardline British Brexiteers.

Mr Johnson’s three-man team consists of European Research Group chair Jacob Rees-Mogg, Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay, and Attorney General Geoffrey Cox.

They began work on a new deal last week and will create proposals to leave the EU with or without a deal come the October 31 exit date.

Taking to Twitter, Jacob Rees-Mogg praised Mr Johnson, claiming: “Boris has the energy, vision and drive to lift the hearts of our nation.”

Mr Hunt’s chosen team is headed by former Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who will oversee ex-trade negotiator Rona Ambrose and Crawford Falconer, a top government trade expert.

Both candidates will take a hard-line stance towards delivering Brexit which could put them on a collision course with Conservative Party moderates.

The pair are battling it out again in another day of campaigning to be Conservative Party leader.

Meanwhile in Brussels Theresa May will head to an EU Summit with other heads of state to discuss appointments for the European Commission and European Council Presidencies.

And The Brexit Party are hosting a rally tonight in Birmingham as they step up pressure on the Government ahead of another by-election in Brecon and Radnorshire.

The event promises to rally Leavers for the “Brexiteer fightback”.

Talking on the Andrew Marr Show this morning, Mr Hunt said his team of negotiators are ‘the best negotiators in the business’.

However, he said they are for “post-leaving the EU”.

11.05am update: Jeremy Hunt – I would bring UK out on no-deal with ‘heavy heart’

In an interview with the Sunday Times, Jeremy Hunt signalled he would be prepared to bring the UK out of the EU without a deal, something he once warned would be “suicide” for the party to pursue.

He told the paper: “There’s not a great deal of difference between Boris’ position and my position. We both want to change the Withdrawal Agreement.

“We will know by the beginning of October if it’s going to be possible to negotiate a deal that we are going to be able to get through the House of Commons.

“If it isn’t, I’ll take us out without a deal.”

10.33am update: David Gauke – ‘0 percent chance’ Boris leaves with deal on October 31

Chancellor Philip Hammond and Justice Secretary David Gauke – who recently defeated a no-confidence vote – both railed against Mr Johnson’s Brexit plan.

Mr Gauke argued there was a “0 percent” chance Boris Johnson could deliver Brexit by “hell or high-water” on October 31 without a no-deal.

He told LBC’s Clive Bull it would be “unlikely” a deal could be negotiated by October 31.

He said: “I am concerned about the position Boris Johnson is maintaining that if we haven’t got a deal by October 31st then we leave regardless.

“I think that would be very risky because I think it is very unlikely we will get a deal completed by then, if indeed we can renegotiate a deal.”
