THE worst rail disaster in Spain for over 40 years has left at least 80 people dead and 160 people on board injured.

All eight carriages of the Madrid-Ferrol train came off the tracks on Wednesday at 8.41pm (local time), near Santiago de Compostela, capital of the autonomous Galicia region in the north-west. It is believed to have been travelling at 118mph - 2½ times the speed

limit - around a curve in the track, and was about three kilometres from the station. Horrific footage of the crash was shown on Spanish TV yesterday (Thursday) as the train failed to negotiate the bend, smashing into the curved concrete wall and overturning immediately.

Around 320 Spanish police officers were deployed to help with the Galicia rescue operation and, as we went to press last night, 76 bodies had been recovered. Four more people died in hospital. The country’s last major train disaster occurred in 1972 when

78 people were killed and more than 100 injured in a derailment in Andalucia, in Southern Spain. But in 1944, there was a terrible threetrain accident in a tunnel in the province of Leon, when as many as 250 people may have perished. Continued on page 3.

80 DEAD IN TRAIN HORROR

Honouring a minute's silence for those who died in the train crash. Above: The Town Hall in Adeje. Below left: Santa Cruz. Below right: Arona.

Continued from front. Heavy censorship at the time meant that the exact death toll was never established, and the official figure was given as 78. The Madrid train bombings of March 2004 produced a death toll of 191- but this was an al Qaeda-inspired terrorist outrage and not an accident. State-owned railway company Renfe said 218 passengers and an unspecified number of staff were on board Wednesday’s train. The crash happened on the express route between Madrid and the ship-building city of Ferrol, on the Galician coast. Track operators Adif are collaborating with a judge appointed to investigate the accident and already, one of the drivers, Francisco Jose Garzon Amo, is under “official investigation”. Passengers have been receiving treatment for a range of injuries, at least 30 being classified as serious, and locals

have flocked to nearby hospitals to donate blood in response to an appeal. At least one carriage caught fire in a scene described by Galicia President Alberto Nunez Feijoo as “Danteesque”. The Foreign Office confirmed that a British national was believed to be among the injured. Foreign Secretary William Hague said the British Embassy was working with Spanish authorities to help respond to the tragedy. “My thoughts are with all those affected and their friends and family,” he added. Yesterday was a regional holiday in Santiago de Compostela, usually in celebration of its Patron Saint, James The Great. It is always the biggest fiesta of the year in this deeply-religious city, renowned for its pilgrimages which attract hundreds of visitors from all around the world. But the festivities

26th July - 1st August 2013

were cancelled out of respect for the dead and their families, and the Spanish Government has declared a three-

day mourning period. Spain’s Prime Minister, Mariano Rajoy, who was actually born in the city, expressed sadness and

shock when he visited the scene yesterday. “Today is a very difficult day,” he said. “Today we have lived

through a terrible, dramatic accident which, I fear, will stay with us for a long time.”

News In Brief Tourist figures slightly down

DURING the first half of this year, 2,375,304 tourists visited Tenerife - 1% drop against last year’s figure. The Russian market increased by 27.8%, the largest percentage, while the Danish market suffered the highest drop with a 14% slump. The number of visitors opting for a five-star stay also increased by 9.5% during the first six months of the year.

Masca misery for two

TWO hikers had to be rescued from Masca earlier this week. Initially, a woman was assisted by the local police, and then a 52-yearold German man had to be airlifted by the rescue helicopter later on. The man suffered an ankle injury and was rescued from a particularly inaccessible part of the barranco.

Police campaign against balconing SPANISH police have launched a hard-hitting campaign on social networks aimed at young tourists, warning of the dangers of “balconing” and excessive drinking.

It was issued before the latest incident involving a 21-year -old Briton, who lies critically ill in a Mallor-

can hospital after leaping from a fourth-floor balcony. The youngster, who has not been named, attempted to jump from his balcony into the swimming pool of the Hotel Honolulu resort in Magaluf at about 3.25am on Tuesday, having overstepped the mark with booze. He was taken to the hospital in nearby Son Espases, where he remains in a serious condition.

The victim was carrying out the infamous, dangerous practice of balconing, in which drunken tourists - usually Brits, or from other northern European countries - jump from balcony to balcony, or dive from hotel or apartment windows into the communal swimming pool. In recent years, several cases of balconing have been reported in which holiday-makers have landed badly in

the pool or missed it altogether. And dozens have landed in hospital with head injuries and broken bones. At least one death has hit the headlines in the last five years, and a British youth was left in a coma with brain damage in 2010 after leaping from a balcony. The practice is popular in Balearic Island beach resorts, particularly San Antonio, in Ibiza and Mallorca’s Magaluf.

App scam reaped 40,000 euros

Biker dies after crash

A 38-YEAR-OLD motorcyclist died following a road crash on Wednesday afternoon on the Carretera General Santa Cruz-Laguna, near Las Mantecas. Emergency services attended the scene and the biker was transferred to the University Hospital (HUC), where he died of his injuries.

Quarterly unemployment drop

IT could be down to the summer season, but unemployment in the Canary Islands fell by 14,300 (1.21%) in the second quarter of the year. It represents one of the largest drops throughout the whole of Spain, but the number of jobless still stands at a whopping 371,300 (33.69%), which is a 5% increase against the same period last year.

Telegraphing good news

SPAIN is the most popular destination for this year’s summer holidays, according to the Daily Telegraph. “Around two million holiday-makers are expected to leave the UK this weekend as the school holidays begin,” the newspaper reports. “The most popular destination for Britons this summer is Spain, including Majorca and Tenerife.” According to ABTA, the UK travel trade association for tour operators and travel agents, other popular destinations include Greece, Turkey and Tunisia. There has also been a recent increase in bookings for “staycations” holidays within the UK, thanks to the prolonged heatwave which has hit the country, says ABTA Canarian Weekly takes all reasonable care to check the contents of every advertisement, but cannot accept responsibility for the claims or statements made in them.

A 23-YEAR-OLD Spaniard, said to have defrauded some 40,000 euros from mobile phone users, has been arrested in Murcia.

He evidently sent his victims a fake application, which said it would enable them to spy on WhatsApp conversations held by their contacts. Using a convincing “phishing” scam, the Spaniard was able to tap into the telephone numbers of 11,000 us-

ers and their contacts, to which he sent a link to the non-existent new programme WhatsAppSPY, inviting them to download it for free. The link directed SmartPhone users to a website which was extremely close in appearance to the WhatsApp site. And it seemed, genuinely, to have been sent by one of their contacts because the accused had previously hacked the users from a social network site, sending more than eight million messages.

The link led them to a site, which asked them to re-enter their telephone numbers so they could receive an activation code - which they never got. In reality, they were signing up to a premium-rate, text-message service, costing between 1.45-7.26 euros per message. The scam went unnoticed because many people who received the spam message telling them about the WhatsApp spy programme assumed it was fraudulent. They felt an application allowing them to

read their contacts’ private messages without consent must have been illegal. Others did not report it, even after signing up to WhatsAppSPY, because they had lost a few euros only through the premium-rate text messages. It was only when a user reported on an internet forum that it was a scam that others came forward and National Police began to investigate. They arrested the Spaniard and confiscated his computer and four hard-drives, which are being examined.

Carnival poster voting suspended Voting for the Santa Cruz Carnival Poster 2014 has been suspended due to suspected fraud.

Last Friday the Carnival organisers launched online the ability for residents to choose from the five finalists which carnival poster they preferred to promote the 2014 Santa Cruz Carnival. Residents could vote for their cartoon favourite by going onto the carnival website, this has now been suspended. The carnival website states, “The Autonomous Agency Fiestas and Recreation of the City of Santa Cruz de Tenerife has decided to suspend the election process Carnival poster by popular vote system, as a result of having detected a fraud in the voting conducted through

the Internet.” It has been found during statutory monitoring that there appears to have been irregular voting and as a result the facility has been suspended. Specifically, technicians have observed that the lists of IP addresses and service providers of some votes

and their corresponding times, shows the use of automated programmes that facilitate a massive vote. As a result the jury that chose the five finalists will reconvene, with the intention that it will now be those members who make the final ballot. Thus, the Carnival

2014, devoted to “Cartoons”, will next week have a corresponding poster. “The organisation is grateful to all bona fide citizens who have participated in this process; it’s with regret that this deception would bring about the suspension of this popular election system.”

Cow power! ON a lighter note, this has to be the funniest story I’ve seen this week – an aircraft powered by cow dung. Had it been that certain day in April, I would have been convinced. But no, a little research proves that it is, in fact, true. One of the world’s leading aircraft manufacturers, Airbus, holds a bi-annual competition for students anticipating the global needs of a more-connected, moresustainable world called Fly Your Ideas. It challenges students across the globe to develop new ideas for the eco-efficient aviation industry of the future. A team of students from Melbourne, Australia, got to the final five of the competition with their project: to fuel a plane with methane produced by the waste from cattle. It seems a little farfetched but, apparently, farm vehicles have been fuelled this way previously. According to airline company Jet2, planes typically use about five gallons of aviation fuel per mile - and Tenerife is approximately 1,850 miles from the UK! An average cow produces 30 gallons of dung per day, (equal to 70 gallons of methane over a year) so a whole lot of pats would be needed to fuel a plane to our Island. Imagine the stench! And imagine the cheers when the Cow Power project team were runners-up with a 15,000euro prize. A team of students from the University of São Paulo, in Brazil, claimed the top prize of 30,000 euros with their loading and unloading system for airplane cargo compartments. It is an air cushion solution, inspired by air hockey

tables, which would reduce the workload of baggage-handlers. The winning team comprised Marcos Philipson, Leonardo Akamatsu, Adriano Furtado and Caio Reis, all studying design at the University of São Paulo, and Henrique Corazza, studying at Loughborough University. The final was held earlier this week at the A380 Final Assembly Line in Toulouse, where the five remaining teams presented their disruptive concepts to a prestigious jury led by Charles Champion, Airbus Executive Vice President Engineering. The winners convinced the jury with a powerful presentation which brought their idea to life. Mr Champion said: “Team Levar’s response to the competition has been fantastic, with a truly innovative proposal for an air cushion solution inspired by hockey tables. “They have taken a really broad view of how to improve the aviation industry as a whole; not limiting their ideas to aircraft alone but also considering ground operations, and they are deserving winners. “According to the students, passengers could collect their luggage 30% faster, start their holidays sooner, and luggage-handlers would be put under less physical strain. “This kind of idea is fundamental in ensuring the aviation industry continues to drive forward to a more sustainable future.” Truly ingenious! Until next week

Operation Guantanamo IN Tenerife 9 people have been arrested and 29 charged with belonging to a criminal organisation, fraud and forgery.

Police have dismantled an organisation composed of 38 members, all aged between 35 and 50 years, who were dedicated to defrauding businesses in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

They managed to defraud 350,000 euros in different shops on the island through the purchase of appliances with credit cards. The items purchased were sold later in Spain or sent to other

countries in South America for sale. The investigation began in March this year, when they became aware of the presence of Cuban citizens requesting credit cards in various financial

Summer Cinema

institutions in order to obtain credit in different establishments on the island. Credit cards with limits of up to 3000 euros, were being obtained, which were subsequently used in different appliance stores on the island, but then the credit card bills were never paid.

As a result of the investigation several house searches have been made, goods seized and approximately 12,000 euros in cash, plus an abundance of falsified documentation, electronic devices of all kinds captured. The investigation continues.

The Culture Department of the Municipality of Arona have once again launched the outdoor cinema project. From 6th August to 5th September, there will be film screenings beginning at 21.30 on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays in Arona – the beauty of it is that they’re free!

Credit-card debts up Weather Outlook to at least 89bn euros HARD-UP people in Spain owe more than 89 billion euros on credit cards - and it could even be more! Fernando Herrero, head of banking consumer association ADICAE says this has increased from 26 billion in 2005, with bad debts accounting for 137.8 million euros. But he believes this shot up to 70 billion in 2010, with bad debts from unpaid cards having increased fivefold. This works out at around 1,900 euros per inhabitant, although when taking into account those who do not own credit cards, including children, the average debt per head is considerably higher. The current figures are based on those taken at the end of 2012, but Herrero says it may

have risen by at least 400 million since. He criticises banks for responding to the rise in credit-card debt by hiking interest rates up to an average of 19.3%, compared with the average of 16.5% in the rest of the Eurozone. Herrero blames several factors, including the recession, job-loss and growing poverty, which is forcing people in Spain to use their credit cards for essentials such as food shopping and bills, merely to survive. Another reason, says the ADICAE chief, is because of the lack of facilities for staged payments in many areas, such as taxes and insurance. Herrero also criticises the practice of banks increasing commission for credit and debit cards - the annual fee just for the privilege

of having one - by 76% and 98% respectively to make up for reduced profits. Between the end of 2005 and the end of 2012, the average annual fee for holding a debit card doubled, from 10.21 euros to 20.25, and for a credit card, from 21.35 euros to 37.71. A survey conducted by ADICAE among 3,561 consumers revealed that a total of 95.5% of consumers believe this is purely to line the pockets of bank managers at the expense of the customer. Only 4.5% consider it to be an investment on the part of the bank to enhance the service provided. And just 8.7% say their credit or debit-card service has improved as a result of commissions increasing in the last seven years.

Moving on... and upwards T E N E R I F E Island Rentals are beginning a new chapter, moving from their San Eugenio office, where they’ve spent three years, to a new, modern office with loads of parking in the Sur y Sol complex, Avenida Londres, Los Cristianos.

As they say, only the strong survive, and the camaraderie of the Tenerife Island Rentals team, both old and new, is testament to this, as they’ve definitely taken the business from strength to strength in its 10year life span. Sonya Thirkettle told Canarian Weekly: “The business has and is moving forward, which is due to the people who have supported me on the Tenerife Island Rentals journey, both now and when the busi-

ness was in its infancy.” The seven-strong team – Sonya, Sue, Rebecca, Scott, John, Felicity and Mary will be operating from their new Sur y Sol office from the end of this month. However, the nature of their niche rental business remains unchanged, concentrating on 3, 6 and 11-month long-term rentals. In addition, they offer for sale rental properties which, in return, have potential for a good level of income. Sonya continued: “We moved premises as a result of customer feedback - with the growth of Siam Park, it was becoming increasingly difficult for our clients to park.” Their objective now is to attract owners in

26th July - 1st August 2013

Los Cristianos and the surrounding areas, who wish to let their properties long-term and thus, satisfying the waiting list Tenerife Island Rentals are seeking to assist. With this in view, Tenerife Island Rentals are planning to offer a three-month, free management package to new owners wanting to let their properties. The offer will be for a limited period. The new office will be open Monday to Friday, from 8am until 5pm (straight through).

Brit climber found dead THE body of a 24-year-old British mountaineer and climbing instructor was discovered in Cantabria, Spain, nearly a week after the man disappeared.

It was found in the Picos de Europa mountain range, down a hole some 10-12 metres deep in the rocks in the Canalona area, at around 4pm on Tuesday. Rescuers first came across the dead man’s rucksack, which led them to his body. The previous Wednesday, he started a climb of the 2,000-metre-high

peaks on the Cantabria-Asturias regional border from Peña Vieja, with a group of other British mountaineers. They decided to turn back before they reached the Canalona hill, but the missing man wanted to carry on. When he failed to meet the group that afternoon, as arranged, they called the police, who dispatched their Mountain Rescue Squad (GREIM). They combed the area by land and air for six days before finding the body. He has not been formally identified and it is not known whether he lived in Spain or was on holiday.

Penelope has a low-key arrival

Lightning strike cuts short Ryanair flight WHILE all the fuss was about the royal baby on Tuesday, Spanish actress Penelope Cruz gave birth to a girl - her second child with husband Javier Bardem. The baby was born at the Ruber Internacional hospital in Madrid and will be a little sister to their two-year-old son,

Page 10

Leo. Unlike the royals, however, the couple will probably be able to keep details of their new arrival quiet. The elusive Hollywood-based Cruz has spoken about how she wants her kids to grow up as “anonymous as possible” and, so far, little is known about Leo.

A RYANAIR flight on its way to Alicante from Edinburgh landed at Prestwick Airport just minutes after take-off after being struck by lightning.

The plane had just left the Scottish capital at 6.15pm during a storm

when it was hit by a bolt of lightning. Aviation engineers inspected the craft fully and gave it the go-ahead to continue the journey. The rest of the flight was faultless and the plane landed, slightly late, at its Costa Blanca destination. A spokesman for the Irish-based, low-cost airline apologised for

the “short delay” in reaching El Altet - soon to be renamed AlicanteElche Airport. But he said the safety of passengers, crew and craft were the company’s No1 priority. Experts say aircraft in flight are frequently struck by lightning, but because the electrical surge is “earthed” in the same way as it is

when a car is struck, the passengers rarely notice anything other than a brief spell of turbulence. Flights are seldom suspended or cancelled because of an electric storm. In this case, Ryanair’s decision to land in Glasgow was taken purely as a precaution to ensure that the plane had not been damaged.

Red wine cannot perform miracles HEALTH supplements containing the so-called “miracle ingredient” from red wine could undo the positive effects of exercise. A daily dose of the antioxidant resveratrol negated many of the benefits of a two-month-long exercise programme, according to a new study. True, the exercise alone lowered blood pressure and levels of “bad” cholesterol and other harmful blood fats. But if combined with a course of supplements, most of the positive effects vanished, according to research published in the Journal of Physiology. Scientists also expect to get the same result from women and younger men. Resveratrol has become increasingly popular as various research studies credit the compound with healthboosting properties, from extending life and battling obesity to warding off heart disease and obesity. However, most re-

Page 12

search is carried out on mice or rats, rather than in the human body. Resveratrol, found in the grape skins which give red wine its colour, is supposed to boost health by mopping up dangerous oxygen molecules, known as free radicals, that attack cells and tissues. They are blamed for health problems from ageing to cancer. Yet the Danish scientists behind this latest study say these free radicals may be needed for the body to recover after exercise. Without them, many of the benefits of exercise, such as lowering blood pressure and increasing oxygen uptake, may disappear. Twenty-seven men in their mid-sixties were asked to perform eight weeks of high-intensity, exercise training. Half the group were given 250mg of resveratrol a day and the remainder 50% received a placebo (a harmless pill or medicine prescribed more for psychological benefit).

Film appeal reels ’em in! CINEMA boxoffice receipts in Britain hit a record high of £1.1bn last year, with admissions reaching 172.5 million.

That was the thirdbest figure recorded in 40 years, according to the British Film Institute (BFI) 2013 Statistical Yearbook. The BFI said UK films took £3.45bn at the global box office, claiming a 15% share of the international market, which was also the third-highest return ever recorded.

The yearbook also revealed that film-goers over the age of 45 became the largest sector of the British cinema audience for the first time. The James Bond franchise’s Skyfall, its current film, became the year’s biggest offering, taking a worldwide £715m. It took £103m at the UK box office alone, creating a domestic record as the highest-earning film of all time. British films are now in the leading two spots for the most successful franchises of all time, the Harry Potter series taking over £5bn worldwide, followed by Bond

with more than £3.97bn. Although a number of top films have foreign funding, British actors have also been big winners, according to the BFI. It said that two-thirds of the top 200 films released worldwide since 2001 featured UK actors in “lead or prominent roles”. The BFI statistics also revealed that 31 films, based on stories and characters created by UK writers, were in the top 200 global box-office successes between 20012012, together earning more than £14.3bn. The cinema’s appeal last year was especially valid because it faced

strong competition for the public’s attention from the Olympics, Paralympics, the Diamond Jubilee and Euro 2012 football. Amanda Nevill, BFI’s chief executive, said: “UK films captivated audiences, and 007 spearheaded another strong year for UK films internationally. “Collectively, they pulled in £3.45bn and helped export British culture and creativity around the world. “Our Yearbook shows film’s continued importance to the UK economy overall, with a record turnover of £7.7bn and trade surplus of £1bn in 2011.”

Body-in-suitcase murder suspect A YOUNG woman’s body, found in a suitcase near a north London sports ground, has led to the arrest of a 29-yearold man suspected of murder.

Investigating detectives have urged anyone who saw a person moving a heavy black trolley case in the area to talk with them. Police, called in on Sunday afternoon to search among trees near a Hendon sports ground, discovered the body of a white woman. Detective Chief Inspector Nicola Wall said: “The homicide and serious crime command are still in the early stages of this investigation. They urgently require the assistance of the public to help us establish the cir-

cumstances around the murder of this young woman.” She added: “We are specifically appealing to anyone who witnessed anything suspicious towards the latter part of last week. Did you see anyone moving a heavy, black trolley-type suitcase on or after 18th July, especially around the Thornfield Avenue/Dollis Road entrance of the wooded area? “We are also interested in hearing from anyone who is concerned about any young adult females who have gone missing from the immediate area recently.” Detective Chief Superintendent Adrian Usher, borough commander for Barnet, said: “The discovery is a tragic and shocking thing to happen. I am sure local people will be feeling unsettled by this news. “Crimes of this seri-

26th July - 1st August 2013

ous nature are incredibly rare in our borough, which may only add to local concern over what

has happened. I would like to reassure the local community that we are working closely

with specialist homicide teams to establish the full circumstances surrounding this murder.”

Police patrols have been stepped up in the area where the body was found.

Beyonce’s hair-raising show BEYONCE has laughed off an incident which could have caused her a serious injury during a concert in Montreal.

The iconic American singer’s hair became entangled in a cooling fan as she went into the audience pit to perform Halo. But, like the seasoned trouper she is, Beyonce carried on singing while security staff struggled to set her free. Posting on Instagram, she changed the lyrics to Halo to read: “Gravity can’t begin to

pull me out of the fan again. I felt my hair was yankin’ from the fan that’s always hatin’.” Beyonce also posted a video of the incident, which has been well received by more than 100,000 followers. The 31-year-old is performing on the North American leg of her Mrs Carter world tour, which visited Europe earlier this year. And Beyonce is returning to England next month to perform at V Festivals in Chelmsford, Essex, and at Weston Park, Staffordshire, the following day.

EasyJet flies even higher

BUDGET airline EasyJet’s quarterly income has risen, thanks to increased passenger numbers and higher fares. Revenue climbed 10.5% to £1.142bn in the three months to the end of June, compared with a year earlier. Passenger numbers swelled by 2.6% to 16.4 million, and seat capacity was lifted by 3.6%. The low-cost carrier expects pre-tax profit for the 12 months to the end of September of between £450m-£480m, which is up from £317m in 2011-12. And shares rose by 6.8% on Wednesday. Chief Executive Carolyn McCall said: “EasyJet is performing strongly, driven by a combination of management initiatives and a benign capacity environment for easyJet in 2013.” She said 73% of seats had been booked for the second half of the company’s fiscal year. Shareholders earlier this month voted by majority in favour of the airline’s deal to buy 135 Airbus single-aisle A320 passenger planes, despite objections from company founder Sir

Page 14

Stelios Haji-Ioannou. Sir Stelios, easyJet’s biggest shareholder, had described the purchase as a “bad deal” because of the high cost. The deal, announced by EasyJet last month, includes an agreement to buy 100 new-generation Airbus “New Engine Option” aircraft. It said then that it had negotiated “very substantial” discounts on the combined list price of (£7.7bn). But industry sources told AFP that easyJet may end up paying only half the amount. Airlines, including British Airways owner IAG, Lufthansa and Air France-KLM, are cutting jobs and shelving growth plans. That’s down to soaring jet-fuel prices and weak economies, which has left gaps for budget carriers like easyJet to exploit. EasyJet recently launched an air route between London and Moscow as it continues to spread its network. And Sir Stelios last year launched the first pan-African no-frills carrier, fastJet, while he and his family still own nearly 37% of easyJet.

Pc murder charge after 28-year gap! A MAN aged 44 has been charged with murdering Pc Keith Blakelock as a result of the Broadwater Farm estate riots in Tottenham, north London, 28 years ago.

The 40-year-old father of three was stabbed dozens of times while trying to protect firemen as they tackled a blaze at a supermarket during the height of the unrest. Londoner Nicholas Jacobs was remanded in custody after a brief court appearance at Westminster Magistrates on Wednesday. He will appear at the Old Bailey today (Friday). It is alleged that after stumbling, the policeman was surrounded by a mob screaming, “Kill the pig”. He was even-

tually dragged away by colleagues but died later in North Middlesex Hospital. The decision to charge Mr Jacobs came after investigators spent more than a decade reviewing evidence and interviewing fresh witnesses. Alison Saunders, chief crown prosecutor for the Crown Prosecution Service London, said: “Following a thorough investigation by the Metropolitan Police Service, we have decided that Nicholas Jacobs should be charged with the murder of Pc Keith Blakelock during the disorder at Broadwater Farm in October 1985. “We have concluded that there is sufficient evidence, and it is in the public interest to prosecute. “We have also concluded that no further action should be taken against five other in-

dividuals suspected of taking part in the death of Pc Blakelock as there is insufficient evidence to warrant a prosecution.” Winston Silcott, Mark Braithwaite and Engin Raghip were convicted in March 1987 of the policeman’s murder. But the convictions were quashed 4½ years later after forensic tests on pages of key interview records suggested they had been fabricated. Scotland Yard reopened the murder investigation in 2003 after indications that there were possible new lines of inquiry. In 2010, 14 men were arrested in connection with Pc Blakelock’s death, and the attempted murder of his colleague, PC Richard Coombes. Nine were told in August 2011 that they would face no further action, and Scotland

Yard said on Tuesday that another four had also been released from bail. Prosecutors have advised that a fifth person should also face no further action. Pc Blakelock’s widow, Elizabeth said in a statement: “The family of Pc Keith Blakelock have never given up hope in getting justice for him. “We welcome this news, and extend our eternal gratitude to the Metropolitan Police Service.” Mr Jacobs was 16 at the time of the riots, which spread through the Broadwater Farm estate following the death of a woman during a police raid. His brother insisted he was innocent, saying at the family’s Tottenham home: “I feel he has been victimised. This is very difficult for the family and we are very upset.”

Plane’s scary runway crash TEN passengers were injured on Monday after a plane’s landing gear collapsed as it touched down at a New York airport.

The incident frightened the life out of many on board, but Patrick Smith, from air travel blog AskthePilot. com, said: “From a pilot’s perspective, this is nearly a non-issue. “It makes for good television, but this is far down the list of nightmares for pilots.” Try telling that to the relieved 150 passengers at LaGuardia airport, after the Southwest Airlines Boeing 737, arriving from Nashville, Tennessee, had skidded down the runway on its nose. The airport, which generally handles flights to and from other US cities, was closed temporarily as the emergency services helped with the evacuation of the passengers and crew. Investigators are examining the potential cause of the crash. Thomas Bosco, acting director of aviation at the Port Authority

of New York and New Jersey, said the nose gear of the plane collapsed when it landed at 5.40pm. “The aircraft skidded down the runway on its nose and then veered off and came to rest in the grass area,” he said. “There was no advance warning of any possible problem before the landing.” Television showed the plane with its nose angled down to the ground, its evacuation slides out and the fuselage surrounded by emergency vehicles. Passengers saw sparks flying as the nose scraped along the runway, according to accounts by some of them. One passenger, Anniebell Hanna, said the flight had been delayed leaving Nashville after passengers had heard an announcement saying: “Something is wrong with a tyre.” Of the landing at LaGuardia, the 43-yearold added: “When we got ready to land, we nosedived. I hit my head against the seat in front of me.” She was among the first to get off the

plane, and could smell something burning when she slid down the chute to the tarmac. Planes scheduled to fly to LaGuardia were detained at their origin airports, while those already en-route were diverted to New York’s other hubs, Newark and JFK, which led to long delays. All take-offs were suspended for more than two hours after the accident, but the airport’s two runways were fully functional on Tuesday. The incident came 16 days after Asiana Flight 214 crash-landed at San Francisco’s international airport. Three Chinese teenagers died as a result of the Boeing 777 crash, and dozens more people were injured. But Smith, who founded AskthePilot. com and is himself an airline pilot, was adamant that landinggear incidents were not high on the list of pilot concerns. “It doesn’t happen very often, but I need to emphasise just how comparatively minor this is and how far, far down the hierarchy it is,” he said.

Young Briton is stabbed to death A BRITISH teenager was stabbed to death during a brawl on the Greek island of Crete in the early hours of Tuesday. The clash, between dozens of Brits, broke out among a group of holiday-makers in Malia. The man suspected of the stabbing was arrested, along with 17 others, and police have

continued their search for 12 other Brits they believe were involved in the fracas. The 19-year-old victim, who had been stabbed in the chest, was found outside a closed bar at 3am in a town renowned for its nightlife. He died on the way to a hospital. A Foreign and Commonwealth Office

26th July - 1st August 2013

(FCO) spokesman said: “We can confirm the death of a British national in Malia, Greece, on Tuesday. We stand ready to provide consular assistance to the family.” Malia is among the top five destinations for hundreds of thousands of young British tourists who travel to Greece every year.

Baby George makes debut

THE waiting was over for millions of people around the world at 4.24pm on Monday as the latest addition to the Royal Family finally emerged.

On Tuesday the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge - Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton - stood proudly on the steps of Lindo Wing, at St Mary’s Hospital, Paddington, displaying their newborn son. And some 24 hours after that, following much speculation, the Prince’s name was revealed as George Alexander Louis. The 8lb 6oz baby, third in line to the throne behind his father, and grandfather Prince Charles, gave a fluttering wave of his tiny hand as his Dad cradled him gently and lovingly in front of the hordes of waiting press and media, as well as hundreds who lined the streets. The Duke said they were “working on a name” and would choose one “as soon

as we can”. It couldn’t have been much sooner! But that was almost a side issue as the muchawaited birth sparked great scenes of joy and celebrations throughout the capital and the country - and especially in Kate’s home village of Bucklebury, in Berkshire. That’s where her family live, and where she is likely to spend six weeks or so with her parents, Michael and Carole Middleton, and her baby at their mansion. The royal couple, taking everything in their stride calmly so soon after the birth, described becoming parents as “very emotional”, before William drove his family home from the hospital to Kensington Palace. Meanwhile, London and the rest of the country celebrated, and how, as the champagne spilled over in pubs and on the streets, with many a glass raised to cheer the royal couple and their baby. Formal events began with crowds massing outside Buckingham Palace, to witness a special Changing of the

Guard, with the band playing Cliff Richard’s golden-oldie hit song Congratulations. People thronged to watch the ceremony and, no doubt, all hoping to catch a glimpse of the easel in the forecourt of the Palace which, by tradition,

displayed the formal announcement of the birth. Later, gun salutes from cannons sounded across the capital to mark the special occasion. The King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery and the Honourable Artillery Company car-

ried out the ceremonial royal salutes in honour of the Royal Family’s new member. This included a 41gun salute at London’s Green Park, and 62 rounds fired at the Tower of London. These traditional salutes are fired for the

birth of every prince or princess, no matter where their place is in the line of succession. And the last royal salute for a birth was for Princess Eugenie in 1990. The bells at Westminster Abbey, where Kate and William married just over two years ago, rang out until 5pm - a poignant scene for three of the bell-ringers, who performed the same task for the new Prince’s father 31 years ago. The Dean of Westminster, the Very Reverend Dr John Hall, who conducted the wedding service for William and Kate, said: “We assure Their Royal Highnesses of our prayers and very best wishes. The birth of any child brings great joy to families and friends. “This birth of a child, destined one day to be monarch, will rightly be celebrated throughout Continued on page 18.

James and Alexander were among other hot tips, carrying shortpriced odds. But Louis was never in the running, and the belief is that William chose the name after his father’s favourite uncle, Lord Louis Mountbatten, who was murdered by the IRA in 1979. However, the prospect of the new Prince being named after his father

Page 18

www.canarianweekly.com

had been virtually written off by the bookies, with both Ladbrokes and Paddy Power rating William as a 50/1 shot. Royal babies are not often named quickly. It was seven days before the name of a new-born Prince William was announced in 1982, and there was a month’s delay following the birth of Prince Charles in 1948 until his name was revealed. But, in keeping with their modern image, the couple revealed little George’s name after spending their first night as Mum and Dad at a cottage within the grounds of Kensington Palace - where they will continue to live. The following morning,

Wednesday, they introduced Prince George to his g r e a t - g r a n d m o t h e r, The Queen, and his uncle, Prince Harry. Already the world’s most famous new family, they then took off for Berkshire and the Middleton’s mansion. Kate and William smiled broadly and waved from their car as they were driven away from Kensington Palace by Royal Protection Officers. They looked happy and bright-eyed, William in the front passenger seat and Kate in the rear with their precious cargo, offircially titled HRH Prince George of Cambridge, strapped into his baby seat. The Duke and Duch-

ess arrived just before 2pm for a short visit and were escorted into the Middleton estate by a marked Thames Valley Police van, which had blocked off the entrance to the country road leading to the house. Kate’s parents had already seen baby George the previous day, along with Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, at the hospital following the birth.

Kate plans to leave Kensington Palace for her parents’ mansion as soon as William returns to work as a searchand-rescue pilot with the RAF in Anglesey, North Wales, after his fortnight’s statutory paternity leave, The Duchess and her baby will reside there on and off - for the next six weeks as part of the bonding process, while her husband completes his present tour of duty with the RAF in Angle-

sey, North Wales. Then, by October at the latest, William, Kate and HRH Prince George will move into their official London residence their newly-refurbished apartment in the grounds of Kensington Palace. But it’s a safe bet the family will want to get away from the hustle and bustle of London life and head for the peaceful Berkshire countryside as often as possible.

Travel Sky Scanner have revealed the 15 most misleadinglynamed airports that are a long way out of town... and the 15 airports that are closest to where they say they are. Plane lands at eight. Taxi to your hotel. You’ll be in the bar by nine. Not if the airport is 50 miles from where you’re staying! Many budget airlines use ‘secondary’ airports because of the lower operational costs compared with more central airports, which is totally fair enough - it means you get a cheap fare. But do check where you’re actually flying to before you book - it’s not always what it says on the tin. We all know that London Stansted isn’t exactly in London, but calling it the Essex-Herts Border International just isn’t as sexy. The same goes for airports abroad. For example, say you want to go to Stockholm. The Swedish capital has four airports. Both Stockholm (Skavsta) and Stockholm (Västerås) are 62 miles (99km) from central Stockholm. Which is great if you’re not actually going to Stockholm. If Nyköping is where you’re heading,

THAT’S the message this summer for families heading abroad from the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).

It’s reminding holidaymakers to pack their ATOL certificate to make sure they’re covered if something happens to their travel company. Families booking ATOL protected air holidays are covered if their travel company collapses either before they travel, or during their holiday. But to have peace of mind they will get their money back or return home safely they’ll need an ATOL certificate, which confirms their protection and explains what they should do if something happens to their travel company.

How far? then great, it serves your needs. Heading off hiking? You can actually start walking on the 1000 kilometre Sörmlandsleden trail straight from the arrivals hall! In which case, thank you Ryanair. But if you can’t ignore that rock-bottom flight price, do factor in the time (especially of you’re arriving late in the day) and transport costs. But if you’re in Stockholm on business or for a weekend break, when you can’t afford to spend time on a long transfer from the airport to your hotel or meeting, you are probably best flying to Stockholm (Arlanda). It is a mere 20 miles

(37km) from the city centre, although you’ll pay the price as you’ll need to fly on a scheduled airline like BA. Last year Ryanair added Paris-Vatry Disney to its list of destinations. With both ‘Paris’ and ‘Disney’ in the name, you might expect the airport to be located in the vicinity of either the French capital or Euro Disney. However, at 93 miles from Paris’ city centre, and 70 miles from Europe’s ‘Magic Kingdom’, Paris-Vatry Disney set a new record in misleading airport names. Munich’s Memmingen airport is 70 miles from central Munich, Oslo Torp is 68 miles from central Oslo, and new

easyJet (it’s not just Ryanair!) base, London Southend, is 40 miles from the city centre (the same distance as London Stansted is from central London). Here are the top 15 offenders: Most misleadingly named airports 1. Paris-Vatry (Disney) - 93 miles (150km) from central Paris (and 70 miles (112km) from Disneyland Paris) 2. Munich West (Memmingen) - 70 miles (112km) from central Munich 3. Oslo (Torp) - 68 miles (110km) from central Oslo 4. Frankfurt (Hahn) 68 miles (110km) from central Frankfurt 5. Stockholm (Västerås) - 62 miles (99km) from

central Stockholm 6. Stockholm (Skavsta) - 62 miles (99km) from central Stockholm 7. London (Oxford) 60 miles (97km) from central London 8. Barcelona (Girona) - 58 miles (94km) from central Barcelona 9. Barcelona (Reus) 58 miles (94km) from central Barcelona 10. Paris (Beauvais ) 55miles (88km) from central Paris 11. Dusseldorf (Weeze) - 50 miles (80 km) from central Dusseldorf 12. London (Stansted) - 40 miles (64km) from central London 13. London (Southend) - 40 miles (64km) from central London 14. Tokyo (Narita) 37 miles (60km) from central Tokyo

Pack your ATOL

This is the first summer when holidaymakers will be travelling with ATOL certificates, after it was introduced in October 2012. Hav-

ing access to the certificate whilst away will mean holidaymakers can easily know they are protected and can ensure they get home

safely. Andy Cohen, Head of ATOL, said: “Thousands of families will be setting off on their summer holidays this week and the vast

majority of them will enjoy trouble-free trips. However, things can go wrong and if your travel company collapses whilst you’re away, your ATOL certificate proves you’re protected and lets you know what to do next. “It’s therefore really important that people remember to pack their ATOL certificate when travelling abroad this summer, just as they would their passport or travel insurance. This will give them the peace of mind they are protected whatever happens to their travel company.” The CAA runs the ATOL scheme to protect holidaymakers against the risk of their travel company failing,

All passengers that book flights and accommodation together with the same company should be protected by the ATOL scheme, and will receive an ATOL certificate as soon as they make any payment towards their holiday. Before making a booking, customers should first check they will receive an ATOL certificate; this clarifies what is protected, who by and what to do if something goes wrong.

The Mill Don't Miss... New Tricks See page 31

You Saw Them Here First See page 32

26th July - 1st August 2013

Sunday 28th July, Channel 4, 20.00

A historical four-part drama written by John Fay set in rural-industrial England in the turbulent year of 1833. Based on the extensive historical archive of Quarry Bank Mill in Cheshire, this powerful new serial depicts Britain at a time when the industrial revolution is changing the country beyond recognition. In the 1830s, children as young as nine work 12-hour shifts in the mills, and the new class of millowning families prosper. But the so-called “white slaves of England” are about to take their lives into their own hands for the first time as outsiders with new ideas enter their world. At Quarry Bank Mill things are about to change. A third of the workforce at Quarry Bank are apprentices – many are youngsters sold by local workhouses to the Gregs, the mill owners. These unpaid ap-

prentices have no right to leave the mill until adulthood, bearing an uncomfortable similarity to the slaves who the Gregs also own in the Caribbean. In this bold new drama, the apprentices are led by Kerrie Hayes (Black Mirror, Good Cop, Kicks) as the real life Esther Price, a feisty Liverpudlian well documented in Quarry Bank’s archives, who risks her own position to stand up for justice. The arrival of Daniel Bate, played by Matthew McNulty (Misfits, The Syndicate) – a progressive young engineer with a troubled past proves a catalyst, and the political firebrand John Doherty, played by Aidan McArdle (The Duchess, Garrow’s Law), seems to offer the workers the possibility of a new and better future. The adults who rule these teenagers’ lives with an iron rod include Kevin McNally (Pirates of the Caribbean, Downton Abbey) as Mr

Timperley, Manager of the Apprentice House, and Claire Rushbrook (Secrets and Lies, My Mad Fat Diary) as his wife. Craig Parkinson plays Charlie Crout; an abusive overseer whose treatment of Miriam (Sacha Parkinson), a young apprentice, compels the outspoken Esther Price to speak out while Miriam’s more compliant sister, Susannah (Holly Lucas) tries to keep her head down. Donald Sumpter (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Game of Thrones) and Jamie Draven (Billy Elliott) play Quarry Bank’s founder Samuel Greg and his ambitious son Robert, while Barbara Marten (Casualty, Waking the Dead) plays Hannah Greg, Robert’s mother, who wants to improve the apprentices’ lives while defending the family business. The real Greg family was one of the leading industrial families of the period, with five mills employing thousands

of workers. Liberal and politically active, they also helped found The Manchester Guardian and Britain’s first stock exchange. They were a family full of contradictions: proud of their philanthropic reputation while owning a slave plantation in the West Indian island of Dominica, and holding on to the apprentice system far longer than other mill owners. The Mill is based on the people and history of Quarry Bank Mill in Cheshire and much of the drama was filmed in and around this National Trust property. This is Channel 4’s first factually-inspired period drama and is written by BAFTA award-winning John Fay (Clocking Off, Torchwood, Coronation Street), directed by James Hawes (Enid, The Suspicions of Mr Whitcher, Mad Dogs) and produced by Caroline Levy (George Gently, Excluded, Apparitions, Cape Wrath and Rough Justice).

Four Rooms Channel 4, 20:00

Members of the public attempt to sell their curious collectables for lifechanging sums of money. Some of Britain's top wheeler dealers wait in four separate rooms, each prepared to spend their own personal fortunes if an item they desire comes through their door. Each seller must remember the golden rule: if they turn down a deal, they can never return to that room. In this episode the four dealers - Shaun Clarkson, Tom Bolt, Wendy Meakin and Maurice Amdur - are tempted by, among other things, rare Buddhist scrolls, a two-headed pheasant, Lord of the Rings first editions and a very rare Hermes bag.

The Kids are All Right Channel 4, 23:10

Lisa Cholodenko directed and co-wrote this truthful and spritely comedy drama about a sperm donor meeting the family he anonymously helped to create. Gay couple Nic and Jules are muddling along in perfectly imperfect normality with their teenaged children Joni and Laser when suddenly Laser gets it into his head that he'd like to find out what it's like to have a dad.

Kate, who bought her own farm in Wales two years ago, gets to grips with an unfamiliar animal - the alpaca - living with alpaca herders in the Peruvian High Andes. Here she discovers an ancient culture at a crossroads between tradition and progress. The people here are struggling to make ends meet - lack of pasture and poor quality animals threaten this traditional way of life. Kate sets off in search of solutions, but soon learns that the whole alpaca industry is on a knife-edge.

Dr David Starkey's exploration of how the monarchy shaped Britain's music reaches the 17th century, when religious conflict threatened not only the lives of musicians and monarchs, but the future of the monarchy and the glorious tradition of British music itself. And yet, in the midst of this upheaval, royalty presided over a series of musical breakthroughs - from the first chamber concerts and protooperas, to the triumphant debut of the baroque orchestra. Westminster Abbey choir sing some of the earliest surviving music to be heard at British coronations; the Band of the Life Guards play pieces which Charles I used in battle, which marched James II out of his kingdom, and which mourned Mary II; and the Academy of Ancient Music perform some of the glorious works of arguably the greatest English composer - Henry Purcell. Also featured are works by Orlando Gibbons, Thomas Tomkins and the little-known William Lawes.

In Rajasthan, vultures watch hunting tigers hoping for a meal and pigeons visit a temple dedicated solely to sacred rats. 9,000 cranes overwinter in the most unlikely of spots - a barbed wire compound in the centre of a desert town. In the Australian outback, white cockatoos swirl in thousands and budgerigars pass Uluru (Ayers Rock) and gather in the biggest flocks ever recorded. In China, swallows and swifts visit the Great Wall and the Forbidden City of Beijing. In Japan, the country's most revered birds - Japanese cranes - are fed fish by appreciative locals and are joined in strange, momentary harmony by hungry red foxes, white-tailed eagles and Steller's eagles. As peace descends, Japanese cranes dance beautifully in the snow.

Gregory argues that it is impossible to understand this volatile and pivotal moment in English history without understanding the women at the heart of the family feuds that tore the nobility apart. She traces the stories of Elizabeth Woodville - the White Queen - and her rivals, Margaret Beaufort and Anne Neville, to demonstrate that they are as vital as any of the Kings and nobles that conventional history concentrates upon.

W C ch o ice Raymond Blanc: How to Cook Well BBC2, 11:45

Raymond Blanc believes becoming a good cook is all about mastering the basic techniques. Raymond taught himself to be a Michelin star chef. But first, he had to understand what happens to food when you cook it different ways. Once you know what is happening when you roast, fry, poach etc then you can cook anything. This episode is all about roasting; cooking in the dry heat of the oven using fat or oil to keep the surface of the food moist. For Raymond it is a technique that conjures up the wonderful smells of the kitchen at home. He starts his masterclass with the most traditional of British dishes, roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. Raymond cannot resist French trimming the beef, though. Roasting is a technique that can work well with a robust fish. Raymond shows how to do it with a piece of tasty turbot on a bed of fennel. For dessert, Raymond gets very excited as he perfectly trims a pineapple before roasting it whole for a spectacular finale.

The story of Anka Bergman, who gave birth to her baby daughter Eva in a Nazi concentration camp. During her pregnancy, Anka witnessed the horrors of Auschwitz and endured six months of forced labour. If the Nazis found a woman was pregnant, she could be sent straight to the gas chambers. Amazingly, Anka's pregnancy went unnoticed for months. Anka eventually gave birth - on the day she arrived at an extermination camp. Anka weighed just five stone and was on the brink of starvation; baby Eva weighed just three pounds. Remarkably, both mother and daughter survived, and are living in Cambridge. ch oice

Three of the UK's most renowned chefs, Tom Kitchin, Theo Randall and Michel Roux Jr, go back to catering college to look for a young student to take under their wing. Top chef in Italian cuisine Theo Randall begins his search as he returns to Brooklands College in Surrey where he himself trained. He meets three of the college's best students as he sets them a simple test to assess their level of skill, their instinct in the kitchen and, more importantly, what kind of bond he can potentially develop with them. Asking the students to prepare sea bass using an array of ingredients, including fennel olives and capers, Theo quickly gets an idea of the type of chefs these youngsters have the potential to be. The three chefs are then brought together as Theo shows them how to cook a dish that reflects his core rustic Italian culinary principles, a wild mushroom risotto. Working under Theo's tutelage, the students recreate the dish before he decides which one will leave the process.

Acclaimed singer Alfie Boe will be making a special appearance in the new series of Mr Selfridge, which is due to transmit on ITV next year. Filming of the second series of Mr Selfridge is well underway and Alfie Boe will be joining cast. Series two of Mr Selfridge picks up the action in 1914 as the store is celebrating its 5th anniversary of trading. As the series progresses war breaks out and Mrs Selfridge (Frances O’Connor) and Mr Crabb (Ron Cook) arrange a charity event at the store to raise money for soldiers on the front line. Alfie Boe plays Richard Chapman, a tenor who used to be top of the bill at the Gaiety and is an old friend of Lady Mae Loxley (Katherine Kelly). Lady Mae asks Richard to sing at Selfridge’s charity concert and he’s happy to oblige. As Mae says herself, Richard has the voice and heart of an angel. Richard comes back into her life at a time when she needs him most, offering her warm comfort and worldly wisdom. “I’m a huge fan of Mr Selfridge and am thrilled to have the opportunity to be a part of the series. I’m looking forward to seeing the set and meeting the cast,” said Alfie Boe.

Neighbourhood Force ITV1, 21.00 Last year five million people in Britain had serious problems with their neighbours. Instead of trying to resolve them in person we now pick up the phone and call the council to do it for us. This eye-opening new series takes us behind the scenes at Birmingham and Enfield Councils from the call-centre to the frontline. Anti-social behaviour officers step in to stop neighbourhood arguments spiralling out of control; animal wardens discover pygmy goats in a council flat; and enforcement officers must deal with travellers and Gypsies. Thousands of calls flood in every day complaining about everything from noisy neighbours to lost wallets. This is a warm portrait of the work they do dealing with bitter conflicts and surprising friendships. It’s council workers - as you’ve never seen them before. We follow the tough decisions they face on a daily basis: should they evict an alcoholic tenant who’s living in squalor or help him get his life back on track? When a Gypsy family parks illegally on council land because their young daughter is ill, what do they do? They never know what’s behind the front door. When anti-social behaviour officer Vicki Moore is called out to investigate reports of a dog abandoned in a flat she discovers a young mother who just can’t cope and is putting her 3 month year old baby at risk: “It’s time’s like this that part of me thinks if it wasn’t for the likes of me on the estate God knows what would happen to some of these kids. One minute you’re a social worker, you’re a mental health worker, you’re a dog warden, you’re a child-minder...” Vicki Moore, Anti-Social Behaviour Officer These are the frontline officers who hold our communities together. Working day and night, solving conflicts, making our neighbourhoods better places to live in.

Queen Victoria and Prince Albert shared a passionate marriage. Behind closed doors, royal domestic life often seemed like a battlefield. In a 60-year family saga this three-part series explores the reign of Victoria through her personal relationships with her husband and her nine children. It is a story of manipulation, conflict, intimidation, emotional blackmail, and fevered attempts by her children to escape the clutches of their domineering and needy mother. The series uses a wealth of written material and photos left by Victoria, Albert and their children, including letters, diaries, memoirs and journals, to bring the subject and characters to life. This first episode focuses on Victoria's tempestuous relationship with Prince Albert, their attempts to engineer the upbringing of their children and to save the monarchy by projecting a modern image of the royal family.

11:30 .......... Helicopter Heroes

This new three-part documentary series looks under the bonnet of an Essex used car dealership to reveal the secrets of ‘flogging motors’. Britain is a nation of car lovers. After our homes, a car is the most expensive thing we’ll ever splash out on. Some people are willing to go thousands of pounds into debt to drive the car of their dreams and, thanks to the likes of Arthur Daley, used car dealers are as trusted as estate agents, politicians and journalists… Filmed at Essex Car Company, a family-run used car dealership in Rainham, Dealers shows the reality behind the patter, and how, with finances tight, customers are giving dealers more of a run for their money than ever before. The team of salesmen will do anything they can to close a deal. But for some, living on commission is tough. Not so for James, the ultimate salesmen with the gift of the gab, who shifts over thirty cars every month without fail and could, according to his colleagues, ‘sell sand to the Arabs’. “Cars bore me, I’ve got no time for cars whatsoever. It’s the people bit I like, I sell cars to earn a living,” says James. “They’ve got to be loving you. Within seconds they’ve got to be thinking ‘Yeah, this fella’s alright’. They even haven’t got to love the car. If they love me they’re buying a car.” 21-year-old Scott may not in the same league as James, but he’s only just starting out – until two months ago he was fitting windows for a living. Like all the dealers, Scott has a monthly sales target, but he’s not selling enough cars to meet it. He’s on probation, so he needs to start closing deals. “When you see people coming in that’s your age or a bit younger than you buying nice cars you do get a bit jealous. You think ‘Hang on, I’m doing something wrong here’,” says Scott. “I’d like a nice car. I can’t afford a nice car at the moment. Hopefully, start doing well and then I will be able to get myself a nice car.” At 27, Greg is a precocious boss. A former salesman himself, he oversees all the deals and is charged with making sure the company makes a decent profit. It’s a big responsibility for someone so young. “My job is at the end of the day is the person that says yes or no,” says Greg. “Yes we should do this deal. No we shouldn’t do this deal.” Money may be tight at the moment, but it doesn’t stop people wanting a nice car. 24-year-old Jordan works as an assistant manager at Mothercare and he’s very taken by a Range Rover on the forecourt, even though his current car is only a year old and he still owes a hefty whack on the finance. “If I saw someone driving a Bentley I’d think ‘They’re doing well, I want to be in their shoes’,” says Jordan. “A lot of people say money can’t buy happiness, you could be laughing your head off in a Micra or crying in a Bentley. I would cry in a Bentley.” But can Scott make the finances work to clinch the sale he needs and get Jordan his dream car? Meanwhile Katie has fallen in love with a Mini. She’s saved up most of the money and her dad is pretty sure he can make up the rest by trading in their old Renault Clio. But they’ve come face-to-face with master salesman James, who uses every trick in the book to close the deal. Meanwhile work experience boy Declan is studying for his GCSEs while learning the ropes of the motor trade from James. “James is a brilliant salesman. If you’re a salesman you’ve got to talk a lot of rubbish. Just try and keep talking as much as possible,” says Declan. “You don’t have to know about what you’re selling, just be able to talk to the customers. So just go on and on and on.” But Declan’s career ambitions lie in a very different direction: “I hope I’m going to do well in my GCSEs and hopefully go on to sixth form and university after that,” he says. “What I want to do is probably very different from being a car salesman. I can see myself writing – either journalism or books – that’s always been a big thing for me.”

How to Get a Council House Channel 4, 21:00

With our social housing in crisis, this brand new series looks at how Tower Hamlets and Manchester councils are dealing with a lack of properties and too many people in need of homes at affordable rents. Each episode follows the stories of contributors and reveals who is successful and who loses out in the bidding battle for these select few homes. Some people's hopes are answered but most find themselves with hundreds, and sometimes thousands, of more suitable prospective tenants ahead of them. This series also observes some of the issues through the eyes of those on the front line. Council officers are tasked with the difficulty of matching homes to some of the 1.8 million people living on England's social housing list. The first programme follows some of the council officers and families in Tower Hamlets, London. Each week there are 24,000 people hoping to get one of just 40 properties available.

Whirlwind still blows hot! UPDATE... IT is always difficult for a solo singer to work on the circuit here, especially if the artiste is not tributing somebody. The Island’s tribute acts still remain the biggest crowd-pullers but, as a straight singer, you need that special something to set you aside from the throng. Most venues putting on regular shows also offer karaoke, an amazing phenomenon which has produced some fabulous singers who maybe know just 2-3 songs. But they perform them exceptionally well and they become their party piece whenever they are in a karaoke bar. And, nine times out of 10 these karaoke singers, once they have expanded their repertoire, will move on to another venue to sing them all over again. When, as a billed artiste, you are introduced to the stage, the expectation of the audience increases greatly. You are immediately under scrutiny from an audience who have seen singer after singer coming to the stage from the beginning of the evening. So to be a solo vocalist, one has to have a little twist - something you don’t hear on karaoke, or a song which, quite simply, karaoke

singers cannot handle. I have always been a fan of the singer I am reviewing this week. We have worked together at the same venues in the past, and I have the utmost respect for his ability. They dubbed Paul Munroe the “Whirlwind” on the circuit because of his fast-paced show, and he has been working on the Island for almost two decades. Suffice to say, he has never lost his sparkle. Paul, an extremely talented vocalist, draws on his experience as a musician in duos and bands to deliver flawless performances of songs from all genres. What stands him apart is his knowledge of music. He changes his vocal tone according to the style of song, and he can jump from rock to opera or pop to swing at the drop of a hat. His pitching is also first-class.

Paul rarely sings the melody lines of songs exactly the same as the original artiste. Instead, he will find harmonics within the music and use these to twist the song and make it sound different enough to make people sit up and listen. Nearly every song in his set has his own little signature to it, and I have often seen other singers watching and listening to Paul. When he does something different in a song, the eyebrows raise, they look at one another and offer that nod of respect, normally followed up by: “How does he find those melodies?” To have this kind of respect from one’s peers is the highest accolade. As well as being of perfect pitch, Paul also has a vocal range known as “falsetto”, which is something a lot of singers simply do not have. Falsetto enables the singer to sing notes beyond the vocal range of the normal, modal voice. An example of this type of singer would be the Four Seasons’ Frankie Valli, with songs like Sherry, a 1963 hit, or, in modern times, Jake Sheers from Scissor Sisters and I Don’t Feel Like Dancing, which was their first UK No1. Naturally, Paul is able to handle both these

numbers with ease. Put these skills alongside his cheeky-chappy persona for a one-hour show and you have the recipe for a superb cabaret artiste. The choice of songs changes as the agegroup and personalities within the audience change throughout the year. And these factors enable him to stand him out from the crowd. He is also an excellent keyboard player and, in fact, can play pretty much most of the instruments you see in any band’s line-up and he is mostly selftaught! Paul Monroe will have my vote this year for the Tenerife Entertainment Awards 2013 in October as Best Male Singer. If you would like to check that my words are an accurate portrayal of his talent, then visit The Highland Paddy on Parque de la Paz on a Saturday night. You will not be disappointed. Paul enjoys this gig because he is a perfectionist when it comes to sound and, for a small bar on a busy strip, he loves the system in there and feels totally relaxed on stage with no sound issues. He truly is a singer of the highest calibre and a must-see for anyone who enjoys an amazing voice.

NORMALLY, this part of the page is reserved for the What’s New section. But this week I am tipping my hat to a few of the newcomers who have been mentioned on the page over the last few months. Firstly, Andy P, who returned to Tenerife earlier this year and, within weeks, landed the job of resident compere at The Brewers Droop bar, in the Las Americas area known as The Patch. Andy has settled back into Island life with ease and things are going really well for him there. He has put his own stamp on the place and is popular with resident customers and holiday-makers alike. A top compere and a welcome return. You may remember Magsy, who was mentioned here when he arrived in February. Mags, as he’s known to his friends (real name Adam Mags), had never been to Tenerife before and came with an open mind and a respectful attitude towards a tough circuit. Since March, he has been resident compere at Harveys Bar, in Los Cristianos, and is going from strength to strength. Like Andy P, he has introduced his own flavour to the proceedings, incorporating the use of music videos as well as music alone as a form of engaging the audience. And it’s working for him. I have heard lots of people mention his name and how much they enjoy Harveys Bar now that he has settled in. Nice one Magsy.

ANOTHER monster fortnight at Leonardo’s, and with the huge, organised bar-crawls and the pre-party shows for the celebrity events at Tramps, it has been hectic. The staff have worked very hard and last week, manager Steve Wynne organised a little thank-you for them. After the bar closed, the staff were treated to food and drink provided by owners David and Helen. Steve has a big team to manage, and he understands the pressure he puts them under to perform to the highest standards for long hours every night. During the evening, Steve passed around voting sheets to each member of the team for the “Staff Awards” ceremony that would be taking place. Most of it was comedic, with accolades for the Worst Time-keeper, Best-dressed”, Worst Dancer and Most Kissable Employee which, incidentally, was Rebecca. (That’s who I voted for … sshhh!) And, of course, there was the all-important Employee of the Month, which was Steve’s choice. A lot of fun was had and the whole team went away motivated, with morale at a high. Steve asked me to publish the photograph of Blake the barman, who was Employee of the Month. But after perusing all the photos from the event, I have chosen my favourite: the Most Kissable Employee.

By Sue McDonald DECO NUEVO have settled nicely into working from home. At least, we have!

Whether it’s down to mainly tourists being here at this time of year, or whether property owners here are in holiday mode and are just thinking of a cold beer and some shady spot, we definitely made the right decision to work from home for two months! While I don’t necessarily agree with the Spanish mentality of having a siesta, or closing down whole parts of business for almost two months of the year, my feeling is: if you can´t beat them, join them! To be fair, the Spanish have fewer holidays than the Brits over the Christmas break, when the world seems to stop for two weeks, so maybe it all balances itself out. In any case, we’ve actually been very busy this week. Apart from re-organising the little office at my house, where we will be working for the next six weeks or so, we have had several phone calls for work! A couple relate to reupholstery work, so we would have to go to the clients’ house anyway to give an accurate quote, and the others were for extra furniture to complement items we supplied some years

ago. All we’ve done is take our catalogues along to the clients, instead of them coming to the shop. Actually, our business is doing well at the moment - not so much in the area of new properties, but more with our existing, longtime clients. I can remember several years ago that I seemed to spend most of my time at the showflat in El Rincon, or racing about between Mirador and Dinastia. And, of course, through the passage of time, and the fact that these complexes rent out so well, much of the furniture needs “refreshing”. So we are mainly working on reupholstering sofas, replacing curtains, and providing a few extra bits of furniture to match the existing purchases. We have our database at home, of course, which means we can check the original orders, regardless of how long

ago we furnished them, including the time when I worked with Josie as well. The photo shows the type of furniture we supplied in huge quantities to the complexes mentioned above, and also to Port Royale, Royal Palm, Los Diamantes and numerous other complexes around Los Cristianos and further afield. I am delighted to say that the factory is still going strong (although closing for August of course!), and still making all the original models and colours. Together with our other project regarding facial galvanic spas, we are keeping ourselves busy and out of trouble. I didn’t think it was necessary to cancel Jeremy Kyle on Tuesday just because of the Royal baby, but we soldiered on! So Deco Nuevo is business as usual, on the numbers shown below - the show must go on!

Big squeeze is on for nine million anxious families The latest Which? Quarterly Consumer Report reveals a mismatch between perception and reality as consumer confidence is on the rise, yet 1.5 million more families are feeling financially squeezed than a year ago.

A year on from the launch of the Which? Consumer Insight Tracker, a third of families (34%), 9 million households, are feeling squeezed, up from 7.5 million households in July 2012. However, compared to last year, a higher proportion of people say the economy will get better in the next year (up from 16% last year to 24% this year), and a lower proportion describe the economy as poor (down from 76% to 66%). Consumers are also less likely to cut back on non-essential spending than they were a year ago, on big ticket household purchases, home improvements and holidays. Yet, despite this increased consumer confidence, only a quarter of people (25%) expect their own personal financial situation to improve and three in 10 people

(30%) continue to cut back on essential spending. The reality is that households are facing huge inflation on essentials, with food prices up by 4.3%, and gas and electricity bills up by around 8%. In the last year, two-thirds of the population (65%) have said that the economy is negatively impacting their personal finances. The last month has also seen the biggest drop in consumer spending power following nine months of previous continuous growth. Overall spending power is down 0.9% year on year. The combination of the increased confidence to spend with a decline in spending power means that people are relying more on savings or credit to get by. Our figures show that in the last year, on average, each month 6.1 million households dipped into savings to cover their monthly spending, 4.7 million households relied on their overdraft, and one million used an unauthorised overdraft. Richard Lloyd, Which? executive director said: “Consumers are looking on the bright side but millions more households are facing a prolonged squeeze on their finances. This implies they are getting used to the tougher financial climate or

relying more heavily on savings or credit to get by. “Consumers may be aiding our fragile economic recovery but using savings and getting into debt is not sustainable and more people are now feeling the squeeze. The Government must do more to keep spiralling housing, food and energy prices in check.” On average over the last 12 months, each month: 7.8 million households cut back spending 3 million households needed to borrow money from family and friends 1.3 million households took out a new credit or store card 1 million households took out a payday loan. The Which? Consumer Insight Tracker also finds: At the moment just 40% of people describe their finances as ‘good’. On average over the last year more than eight in 10 consumers have been worried about energy and fuel prices (78%) and seven in 10 (70%) worried about food prices. The 30-49 age group is most affected by the financial squeeze, while under 30s have seen the biggest decline in spending power. One in five people have no savings, as paying off debt is seen as a higher priority.

Love your garden

By David Hudgell In this week’s Love your garden on ITV on Tuesday, Alan and his team of horticultural helpers transform a bare and unfriendly space into a wildlife filled paradise.

Bubbly Rhyanne Nixon has been confined to a wheelchair by Motor Neurone Disease. This outgoing lady and her

Take cuttings from shrubs including pyracantha, , ivy, hydrangea and rosemary Prune out plain green shoots from variegated trees and shrubs Cut lavender for drying when in full flower Cut back pansies that look straggly to encourage new growth Plant autumn-flowering bulbs such as nerines, colchicums, sternbergia, autumn crocuses and Amaryllis belladonna Spray roses with fungicide to prevent mildew and blackspot Propagate climbers like wisteria and passion flower by layering. Bend low shoots to soil level and peg them down, making a slit in the portion buried to encourage rooting Harvest onions sown last autumn for early crops

family have moved to a small bungalow where the garden is dominated by a large wooden

viewing platform that she cannot access. She also loves her wildlife and as a former holistic

practitioner would enjoy a garden filled with colour and smells. So her friends and

family have asked Alan to help enrich her life by giving her the garden of her dreams.

Gardening jobs

Water celery regularly in dry weather Bury shoot tips of blackberries and peg them down to raise new

plants Prune out about a quarter of the oldest branches on blackcurrants

Spray potatoes and outdoor tomatoes with Bordeaux mixture to prevent blight Thin heavy fruit crops,

picking off the smallest. Aim to leave developing fruits about 10-15cm apart along the stems, perhaps thinning congested spurs down to just a single fruit Sow seed of herbs now, including basil, parsley and coriander Sow vegetable seeds now, including endive, lettuce and salad leaves, beetroot, radishes, spring cabbages, kohl rabi, Swiss chard, winter spinach, Oriental greens, chicory, spring onions, swede and turnips. Water tomatoes regularly to prevent fruit splitting and blossom end rot Feed tomato crops with a high-potash tomato fertiliser every week Be on the lookout for aphids, vine weevils and other pests

Once the family have been sent away Alan and the team can get to work. He wants to create a wildlife friendly environment centred around a large, newly dug pond. But filling it with water is only the first challenge that David Domoney faces. Looking after the planting is the responsibility of Katie Rushworth and Frances Tophill. They create borders filled with Rhyanne’s favourite flowers and smells. And it’s Alan’s job to turn the muddy pond into an oasis of colour and interest ready to attract a host of different species into the garden.

Sow primulas, calceolaria, cineraria and cyclamen Pinch out sideshoots on tomatoes Pot up houseplants that have become top heavy or pot bound Take leaf cuttings from houseplants including Begonia rex, African violets, streptocarpus, crassula and kalanchoe Pick peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers to encourage further flowers to develop Set up an automatic watering system to look after patio pots and baskets if you’re going on holiday Trim conifers and other garden hedges Feed bedding plants with high-potash fertiliser to keep them blooming Weed flower beds, pulling them up by hand or hoeing bare areas on a hot day

If you fancy celebrating the royal birth in your garden then here are three gorgeous ‘blues’ to choose from. Campanula cochlearifolia Plant - Blue Baby Ideal for beds and borders, patio pots and containers. Attractive to bees, butterflies and pollinators. They prefer full sun or partial shade. and produce pretty bluebell-shaped flowers. They’re compact, creeping plants that are ideal for containers or the edge of a border, producing masses of attractive, blue bell-shaped flowers.

26th July - 1st August 2013

Lobelia Seeds - Cambridge Blue Lobelia flowering from now until September, part of the Sutton’s Seeds Flower Heritage Range. A lobelia with a lovely cool colour. Compact plants covered with tiny flowers throughout the summer, usually grown as edging for beds and borders, often with Alyssum. Ideal for beds, borders, patio containers and hanging baskets. Prefers full sun or partial shade.

Cornflower Blue Boy Seeds

Deep blue flowers, a cottage garden favourite. Deep blue double flowers, ideal for cutting and drying.

DURING the summer months over here, hair tends to suffer a lot - especially those of you with blonder hair.

If you’re not looking after it well, or it’s looking a bit too washed-out, then it can seem faded and a little brash. So, instead of toning it right down or, more drastically, having a total colour change, why not think of adding this summer’s hottest shades to your blonde locks? If you have been having bleached highlights for a while, then the colour can sometimes look too ashen. Or if your full head of tinted blonde is looking a bit “blocky”, then try adding different tones to your shade to liven it up and break up the tone. Simply adding a few golden or honey shades to your regular highlights will diffuse the harshness of the highlights during the summer months. This can be the case if you’re now sporting a tan, because bleached hair with a golden tan can sometimes clash and look too fake. Adding these colours will tone down the brashness and complement your skin tone more. And if it’s a full blonde colour of

blonde, you should then add very light, caramel tones to give a more natural look. This can be used with lighter shades as well to define a more natural, softer look to any blonde shade. These colours will also give the hair a much healthier appearance - something you all need in this baking sun, which can wreak havoc with its condition. Don’t worry if you want to revert to your lighter colour in the

winter because these shades tend to fade out, rather than have to be coloured out. If you look at any natural blonde shade, it’s rarely made up of one flat colour. There is always a mix of various tones and shades, and doing this to your hair will give you a more even and natural-looking blonde look. Ask your stylist to guide you through the colour chart to see what shades work best for your particular blonde.

IF you’re working up a sweat in the gym regularly but still unable to lose weight, then overgenerous treats afterwards could be to blame.

Although exercise has its indisputable health benefits, experts have said that many wellintentioned gym-goers over-estimate how many calories they have burned and, in turn, indulge in too many sugary and fat-laden snacks. For example, it takes over an hour of intensive cycling to burn a medium, shopbought pizza. “There’s a war between exercise and nutrition in our heads,” says Jonathan Ross - not Britain’s overweight, so-called funnyman but a spokesperson for the American Council on Exercise. “People tend to overestimate the amount of physical activity they get. They work out a little bit and treat themselves a lot.” A report by the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation found that although Americans say they are more active, it has not made much of a dent in the obesity epidemic affecting more than one-third of US and UK adults. Mr Ross, a personal

trainer based outside Washington DC, said exercise can play a role in weight reduction, but without broader lifestyle and nutritional changes, that role is limited. He told the Reuters Health online magazine. “We put exercise in a box and, once that exercise box is filled in, we don’t do much the rest of the day,” adding that a calorie-dense treat did not help. “Some weight-loss programmes stress nutrition, while some stress exercise, but the two together are greater than the parts.” The US National Weight Control Registry, which gathers information from people who have successfully lost at least 30lbs (13kg) and kept it off for a least one year, reported that 90% of its members exercise, on average, about one hour a day. American health officials recommend that healthy adults get at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity a week, or around 20 minutes a

day. Dr Joseph Donnelly, an exercise physiologist with the American College of Sports Medicine said the US Government guidelines are for cardiovascular fitness and not weight loss. “It was never intended for weight management,” said Dr Donnelly, a researcher who focuses on obesity at the University of Kansas. “People have misused it.” He stressed that 250300 minutes of exercise per week may be the minimum time in which to lose weight: “At 150 minutes, the best you can hope for is weight maintenance,” he added. Dr Michele Olson, professor of exercise physiology at Alabama’s Auburn University Montgomery, said it was difficult to shed pounds through exercise alone. “One pound of fat has 3,500 calories,’ she explained. “If you ran a 26mile marathon, where you burn about 100 calories per mile, you would burn 2,600 calories, falling 900 calories short of burning one pound of fat.” It’s a staggering statistic, but she added that people must be physically active to remain healthy, regardless of their size or whether they are losing weight. “Moderately-intense exercise done in as few as 10-minute increments, two to three times a day, markedly reduces our risk of all causes of mortality, heart disease most effectively - but all other causes, including cancers, deaths through hypertension and strokes, etc,” she said.

By Val Sainsbury THE level of happiness found in children in the UK is in decline, according to a report from a leading kids’ charity.

A Good Childhood Report by the Children’s Society says wellbeing has dipped since 2008 after a period of improvement from 1994. Teenagers aged 1415 are said to have the lowest self-satisfaction, with 15% reporting a low feeling of well-being. The charity says the drop should not be dismissed as normal early-teen angst. About 42,000 youngsters in the 8-17 bracket were quizzed about their well-being, using a mix of extensively-trialled questions. The report found that around 80% of children could be said to be “flourishing”. This was defined as having scored on or above the mid-point for questions about their life satisfaction and psychological wellbeing. But one in 10 children could be said to have low well-being, defined as scoring below the mid-point for the same questions. Such children are several times more likely than those with average-to-high wellbeing to experience family conflict, bullying, problems in their friendships and other negative experiences. The researchers said previous surveys had consistently found that well-being declined between the age of eight and 15. It added that the new findings showed this age-related downward trend reversed at 16 or 17 for life satisfaction, psychological wellbeing and choice. The areas with the greatest falls between eight and 15 concerned school, appearance, money/possessions and the future, said

Kid's outlook is so unhappy

the researchers. Those areas with the greatest increases among teenagers aged 15-17 are choice, family and appearance. “Appearance seems to be an aspect of life that is a particular issue for children in their early teenage years,” say the researchers. “There is a large drop in happiness with appearance between the ages of eight and 12, which continues at a low level for 13, 14 and 15-year-olds, and then increases again at 16 and 17 years old.” Children said that having loving and supportive family relationships was important. And having a reasonable level of choice and autonomy particularly for teenagers - was vital. Matthew Reed, Chief Executive of the Children’s Society said: “The well-being of our

26th July - 1st August 2013

future generation in the UK is critical, so it is incredibly worrying that any improvements this country has seen in children’s wellbeing over the last two decades appear to have stalled. “These startling findings show that we should be paying particular attention to improving the happiness of this country’s teenagers. These findings clearly show that we can’t simply dismiss their low well-being as inevitable ‘teen grumpiness’. “They are facing very real problems we can all work to solve, such as not feeling safe at home, being exposed to family conflict or being bullied.” The charity said it did not know why well-being appeared to have stalled, but it indicated that issues such as poverty and

unemployment, which could be connected with the economic downturn, might be part of the cause. Psychologist Linda Papadopoulos said it was important not to dismiss this dip in wellbeing among those aged 14-15 as inevitable and “just teenagers

being teenagers”. She added: “We really must talk to this generation and listen to what they have to say. Children and teenagers deserve proper support, choices and a decent say in their own lives. “Being unhappy is definitely not an inevitable part of

growing up. We owe it to our children to help them flourish as much as possible.” Dr Carol Fuller, associate professor of education and assistant director of research at the University of Reading’s Institute of Education, said: “That children’s wellbeing is on the decline, particularly among those aged 14-15, is hardly surprising given the huge amount of stresses placed on them. “For example, at this age we are asking them to make educational choices that will have consequences for the rest of their lives. We also live in a society that makes judgements about you based on your level of educational ‘success’. “So the pressure to achieve is extraordinary as they enter this period of their lives.”

Pack a Picnic The weather here, as you would expect, is roasting. So get out an enjoy it instead of slaving over a hot stove. We’ve sourced some fab al fresco feasts to enjoy whether you’re camping, hiking on the beach or simply, sat on your terrace.. Pack a picnic basket with summery salads, a classic quiche and other tasty treats. Quiche Lorraine (Hairy Bikers’ style) Parmesan cheese in the homemade pastry crust is the Hairy Bikers’ secret weapon for a quiche Lorraine that’s a cut above. Ingredients For the pastry 180g/6¼oz plain flour, plus extra for dusting 100g/3½oz cold unsalted butter, cubed 50g/2oz parmesan, grated 2 tsp thyme, leaves only 1 free-range egg yolk 1 tsp chilled water (more if needed) For the filling 3 free-range eggs 150g/5¼oz pancetta, cubed 250ml/9fl oz crème fraîche 150g/5¼oz Gruyère freshly ground black pepper Preparation method Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. For the pastry, sieve the flour into a mixing bowl. Add the butter, parmesan and thyme and rub into the flour until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the egg yolk and the water and mix to form a firm dough. Wrap

Page 42

the dough in cling film and place in the fridge for 30 minutes. On a floured surface, roll out the pastry to fit one large flan tin. Line the tin with the pastry, then place a circle of baking paper over the pastry and fill with baking beans. Transfer to the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the beans and paper and return to the oven for five minutes. For the filling, place all the ingredients (except 50g/2oz of the Gruyère) into a large bowl and mix gently, to avoid filling the mixture with air. Spoon the filling into the pastry case and sprinkle the remaining Gruyère on top. Bake the quiche for 15 minutes, or until the filling is set. Serve hot or cold with a green salad. Homemade puff pastry sausage rolls Making puff pastry is a labour of love, but the flaky, buttery result is

such a treat. You can’t beat sausage rolls made with homemade pastry. Ingredients For the puff pastry 550g/1lb 4oz plain flour, plus extra for dusting ¾ tsp salt 200ml/7fl oz cold water 2 tsp lemon juice 550g/1lb 4oz unsalted butter, soft enough to be pliable For the filling 2 tsp dried mixed herbs sea salt and freshly ground black pepper 700g/1lb 9oz minced pork 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce 1 tsp chopped fresh sage 1 tsp chopped fresh thyme leaves 100g/3½oz breadcrumbs egg wash (1 free-range egg, lightly beaten in a bowl) Preparation method For the pastry, place the flour and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the water and lemon juice. Mix to combine and then tip out onto

a floured work surface. Briefly knead to form a rough, but evenly combined, dough. Place the pastry in the fridge to rest for 1-2 hours. On a lightly floured work surface, roll the pastry out into a rectangle approximately 50x30cm/20x12in. Slice the butter and lay this over two-thirds of the dough. Fold the unbuttered dough third over the buttered one, then flip that over the remaining buttered third so that the butter is wrapped inside the dough. Take a rolling pin and lightly roll the upper surface of the dough to press out any air bubbles. Seal the edges with a sharp whack of the rolling pin. Give the pastry what is known as one single turn – fold the bottom third of the pastry up, then the top third down. Roll the pastry out to-

wards the folded edges until it measures roughly 60x25cm/23x10in, then fold the pastry in by thirds again. Give the pastry a further two turns, without resting in between. Place the pastry on a plate, cover with cling film and transfer to the fridge to chill for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas 6 and line a baking tray with baking paper. For the filling, in a bowl combine the dried herbs, salt and pepper, pork mince, Worcestershire sauce, sage and thyme. Stir, then add breadcrumbs. Mix well. Remove the pastry from the fridge and roll it into a fairly shallow rectangle at least 24cm/9½in long. If necessary, trim the edges to make a neat rectangle. Roll the meat into a long, thin sausage, approximately the same length as the pastry. (Don’t make it too thick

or the sausage will not cook.) Place the sausage on the pastry and roll the pastry around the sausage. Brush some egg wash on to seal the edge of the pastry. Trim any the excess pastry and discard. Cut the sausage roll into three equal parts, then divide each part into three or four mini sausage rolls. Brush with egg wash all over the top. Place the rolls on the lined baking tray and bake for 20 minutes, or until puffed and goldenbrown. Picnic pasta salad Whether you take it on a picnic or in your lunchbox, this is a perfect quick pasta salad. Ingredients 300g/10½oz pasta shapes such as penne or macaroni 250g/9oz cherry tomatoes, halved sea salt 100g/3½oz black olives, stoned, halved 200g/7oz feta cheese, crumbled 225g/7oz baby spinach 3 tbsp lemon-infused olive oil 2 tbsp pine nuts, toasted large handful torn basil Preparation method Cook the pasta in a large pan of salted boiling water until al dente. Drain the pasta, rinse in cold water and tip into a large bowl. Add the halved tomatoes to the pasta and sprinkle with sea salt. Add the olives, feta and spinach and drizzle with the lemon olive oil. Add the pine nuts and basil and toss gently before serving. Source: bbc.co.uk

A seat for HRH Prince George - at his ‘local’ Cambridge pub HE’S not yet old enough to drink alcohol, but the new Royal Prince is already causing a stir in the licensed trade.

A Cambridge pub has personally welcomed the future King into the world, by permanently reserving a space in the pub for the newest Royal addition. Fort St George, a Greene King pub in Cambridge has designated a reserved space for HRH Prince George of Cambridge, with a plaque on the wall and high -chair. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge first visited the Fort St George in late November 2012 when Kate was just a few weeks pregnant, for a pub lunch by the riverside. Manager of the pub, John Cecchini said: “When the world found

out William and Kate were expecting we were thrilled, having welcomed them into the pub just a few weeks earlier. Now he is here safe and sound, we want the family to know they are very welcome to come back any time, and there will always

be a reserved space for him.” The plaque sitting above the reserved highchair will remain permanently at the Greene King pub on Midsummer Common, ensuring the future King will always have somewhere to sit on his next visit. Cecchini added: “As he

gets older, we will make sure the seat under the plaque grows with him. He will forever be wel-

Owner Rossario Tasso, originally from Naples, told Canarian Weekly: “We offer traditional authentic food - a complete Italian menu full of fresh fish and meat. “We also offer takeaways as well, and we’re very proud of our heritage, so obviously there’s pizza and pasta.”

Luna Rossa is open every day from noon until 2am. There is currently a selection of pizzas on offer at 3.50 euros, plus daily specials, including a set menu. There are cut-price drinks as well, with a small beer just one euro and a large beer 1.80. Rossario and his team are no strangers to restaurants, having run businesses in both the San Telmo and Puerto Colon areas.

By Jav LEXUS have been happy to be known as a luxury brand in the UK with the least easily-defined image, especially with the IS.

So, if you wanted a family saloon boasting a premium badge, there were just three genuine possibilities in the past few years: Audi A4, BMW 3-Series or the Mercedes C-Class. However, that’s about to change as Lexus reenter the arena with their new IS, and they’re setting the bar high. The Japanese manufacturer - the luxury division of Toyota Motor Corporation - hope the IS will repeat the feat of its larger GS brother by tempting buyers away from their diesel-engined Audis, BMWs and Mercs. Lexus expect two-thirds of IS buyers to be company-car drivers, with most of the rest being repeat buyers in the private market. Away from the official line, the car is clearly aimed at a younger audience who appreciate quality and technology. The Lexus sales ex-

pectation looks modest, though, against the Big Three. The manufacturer expect to sell 4,800 IS models a year, which is peanuts compared with BMW, who sold more than 40,000 3-Series in 2012, and Audi, who flogged 20,000-plus A4s. Yet if sales were dependent on looks alone, the IS would be streets ahead of its rivals. The striking “pinched” family grille is mounted in a deep front bumper, from which lines flow along the side of the car to the rear lights. It’s a clever move because the look works well without being too controversial. And it also stands out against the massed ranks of its German rivals. There’s a choice of two engines for the IS range. Up against the

big German diesels is the IS300h, a hybrid powered by a 2.5-litre petrol engine and an electric motor which, combined, produce 220bhp. It can also run in electric-only form when conditions are right, or if the driver selects EV mode. The 0-60mph schedule is completed in 8.3secs and, with a 125mph top speed, the IS300h’s real selling point in Britain, certainly, is emissions of just 99g/km, which means the car qualifies for zero road tax. The official average fuel economy is similarly impressive at 65.7mpg, which is a match for rival diesels. So it’s no surprise that Lexus expect this hybrid to account for 75% of IS sales. The second engine, which powers the IS250, is a traditional 205bhp

2.5-litre V6 petrol which, as with the hybrid, is available with an automatic gearbox only. But despite the lower power output, the V6 is quicker, doing 0-60mph in 8.1secs, with a top speed of 140mph. Both versions are fitted with a dial that controls the way the engines perform and have eco, normal and sport modes. Some versions of the hybrid also add sport+, while both models have an automatic gearbox, with steering wheel-mounted paddles that work well. It’s also extremely comfortable to be at the wheel, and anyone picking the car to cover long distances, or to cope with urban driving, will be rewarded with the smoothest, quietest of rides On top of exquisite

build quality and some high-class materials in the cabin, there are some clever uses of new technology. There is also a suite of online-connected gadgets, controlled through a colour screen using a joystick near the armrest. Lexus have also worked hard to make sure there is much more room than before, with enough headroom for six-footer passengers. The boot is nearly as big as that in the BMW 3-Series or Mercedes C-Class. And with pricing for the IS running close to its German rivals (from £26,425-£38,495), Lexus will also attract buyers because of the car’s higher levels of equipment. Lexus will operate a four-tier trim-level system with the new IS. The entry point is the SE, stepping up through

Luxury and F-Sport to top-out at Premier. All models get alloy wheels, climate and cruise control, a digital radio, LED running lights and wheel-mounted paddles. The Luxury cars gain all-round parking sensors, split-fold rear seats and rain-sensing wipers, while F-Sport buyers get more supportive front seats, 18-inch alloys and aluminium interior trim. The Premier version adds a Mark Levinson stereo, satnav with connected services, powered seats and blind-spot alert. There’s no doubting that, on paper at least, Lexus has come properly prepared with the IS to battle Audi, BMW and Mercedes in one of the most fiercelycontested premium segments in Europe.

Suzuki set to Cross swords again

SUZUKI’S S-Cross, which goes on sale on 1st October, is £1,896-£6,596 cheaper than its main rivals - and looks good value for what you get. It’s stylish and versatile, with prices starting from £14,999, while the Nissan Qashqai kicks off at £16,895, the Ford Kuga, £20,900 and the Mazda CX-5 £21,595. The SCross, set to replace the standard SX4, is much bigger and will be available in four trim levels - SZ3, SZ4, SZ-T and SZ5 - and all models get seven airbags and ESP as standard. Spec for the SZ3 includes cruise-control, 16inch alloys, air-conditioning, electric door mirrors and an MP3-compatible

stereo. And there’s more! The SZ4 models start at £16,249 and add keyless go, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, 17-inch alloys, automatic air-conditioning, Bluetooth and front fog lights.

26th July - 1st August 2013

Move up to SZ-T and you get rear parking sensors and a rear parking camera, a chrome-exterior styling package, a DAB radio and sat-nav, with prices starting at £17,749. And the top-spec SZ5,

costing from £19,749 also gets leather seats, a double-sliding, panoramic sunroof, heated front seats, projector headlights, auto-lights and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror. The S-Cross, un-

veiled at the Geneva Motor Show, will be available with a 118bhp 1.6-litre petrol engine or 118bhp 1.6-litre diesel. The car is front-wheel drive as standard, but go for SZ-T or SZ5 trim and you can have the option of Suzuki’s ALLGRIP four-wheel drive system. A five-speed manual, or CVT transmission on SZ5 models, is available with the petrol engine, while the diesel is available with a six-speed manual gearbox only. Suzuki say the twowheel drive manual SCross petrol model will return 51.3mpg and emit 127g/km with a manual transmission, or 125g/km with the CVT. The four-wheel drive

petrol manual returns 47.8mpg and emits 135g/ km, while the CVT version records 49.5mpg and emits 130g/km. The two-wheel drive diesel returns a claimed 67.2mpg and emits 110g/ km of CO2, while the ALLGRIP four-wheel drive model returns 64.2mpg and emits 114g/ km of CO2. It’s a really tough section for Suzuki to compete in, despite the attractive price range, and a world away from when they launched their ground-breaking SX4. But it looks good, and represents good value for money if you’re looking for a sizeable family motor without breaking the bank.

Tenerife Bluetrail The Bluetrail 2013 will take in six municipalities in Tenerife - Arona, Adeje, Vilaflor, La Orotava, Los Realejos and Puerto de la Cruz and the Teide National Park. Described as the ultimate marathon the Bluetrail will begin from Los Cristianos port, on 19th October at midnight. Runners will then proceed to follow the trail rising up to the third municipality, Vilaflor, Spain’s highest village at 1,400 metres above sea level. Finally, and after crossing the

Rambla de Castro, on the north coast of the island, the Bluetrail will enter its final straight in Puerto de la Cruz. It is in Los Realejos

where there will be the Mediatrail (23 km) shorter and perhaps the most accessible to many runners. Los Realejos will thus have a

major role in this year’s Bluetrail. More information www. tenerifebluetrail.com Facts and figures Start point: Puerto de

Los Cristianos 00:00 h. Friday 19th October End point: Puerto de la Cruz Maximum time: 23 hours

Length: 101.6 km Four trails Ultratrail: 101.6 km Trail: 51km Mediatrail: 23km Adapted trail: 4km

Catch the waves in Tenerife

Tenerife is pushing the boat out this summer. The biggest of the Canary Islands is hosting a major event that will delight sport fans: the Professional Windsurfers Association World Championships - an exciting event that will definitely liven up your summer holiday. For its third consecutive year, El Médano beach, in south Tenerife, is hosting the World Championships (wave discipline) from 3rd to 9th August. This year, the event will be more exciting than ever, as Tenerife will be the first place where scores will be allocated in the World Championships’ wave discipline. Many of the best male and female international windsurfers, including Martin ten Hoeve, Marcilio Browne, Ricardo Campello, Dany Bruch, Alex Mussolini, Iballa Ruano, Daida Ruano, Karin Jaggi and Steffi Wahl will compete over here. There will also be music concerts and recreational activities for everybody to enjoy. El Médano beach is known as Tenerife’s kite-boarding and windsurfing capital due to its regular trade winds and its natural golden sands that extend for over three kilometres – making it the longest stretch of beach in Tenerife. www.pwaworldtour.com - www.tenerife-pwa.com

Richard’s happy birthday! MANY happy returns to Richard, Bar 180 A boss and a committee member, who celebrated his big day with a 148 finish, and led his team to an emphatic 7-1 thumping of The Pub. Palms are still top after equalling that result at Ourplace Playboys, while Target Army took the last rubber to squeak a 5-3 win over Ourplace Naturals. There was a minor upset at La Caña Pirates, who faced local

rivals Phoenix Bar. The La Caña lads put in a fine performance and inflicted a first defeat of the season on the Phoenix. Gaffers A continue to struggle, this time losing the trebles leg and the match to Vikings Ensecan. Meanwhile Target Titans, who look steady in mid-table, recorded their fourth win by beating Scruffy Macs 5-3. Gaffers B are going along nicely in Division 2. With a 112 check

from Neil, they notched their third consecutive win by taking six points at Naughty Nautas. That keeps them hot on the heels of Rood, held to a draw by Chipeque Pool Bar, whose Bryn took out a record finish for this section with a stunning 153. And Luc hit a maximum for the hosts. Trap Door put seven into Marilyns, while Bar 180 bragging rights now lie in the hands of the B outfit. In fact, on the night, only C teamer Arny hit any real form

Credit to the Playgirls, though, who managed to take two points from the league leaders. Bar 180 D and La Caña Lancers are having a bit of an earlyseason ding-dong for third place, and a close match between the teams ended up allsquare after the eight games. But I must give Bar 180 D’s John a special mention. During the match, he hit his first maximum of the season. Great, I hear you say. Trouble is, his

last dart was not meant to be a treble, so he bust! Team-mate Seb had more luck with a 94 checkout. Barracuda Hunters’ fifth point against The Rebels came in a dramatic trebles leg decider, while Picassos already had five points when Amistad 2 took the trebles to make a respectable scoreline. And finally, Pas O Nadas had a successful night at Phoenix Flights. So much so that they won 5-3 and drank all the Bacardi!

Cheerful Charlie gets shirty with Ronaldo! CHARLIE SILVERWOOD will never forget his unintentional encounter with superstar footballer Cristiano Ronaldo - and he has the shirt to prove it!

The 11-year-old Bournemouth supporter was left in agony after a wayward, 35-yard free-kick from the Real Madrid striker broke his wrist in two places. But he was so determined not to miss the

rest of his team’s friendly against Real Madrid on Sunday at the Goldsands Stadium that he hung on for the remaining 84 minutes before getting treatment. He was taken to hospital afterwards and X-rays revealed his double fracture. And for his trouble, he received a signed Real Madrid shirt and a signed football from his own team. It more than eased his pain - and the pain of seeing Championship Bournemouth’s 6-0 defeat by the Spanish team, with Ronaldo scoring twice.

26th July - 1st August 2013

“It’s one of the most spectacular ways you can get your arm broken,” said cheerful Charlie. “I’d prefer doing it this way then just falling out of a tree, like my dad did. “But you wouldn’t expect this to happen to anybody. If I hadn’t put my left hand up and took the brunt of the force on my palm, I’d have ended up with no front teeth.” His father, Lee, who also supports Bournemouth, said: “One minute we were watching Ronaldo stand over the ball - and the next it was flying towards Charlie.”

Sport In Brief It’s the Coe-Mo show

SEBASTIAN COE, who masterminded last year’s London Olympics, believes double golden medallist Mo Farah is geared up for a repeat performance in the forthcoming World Championships in Moscow next month.

Farah shattered two world-class fields in winning the 5,000m and 10,000m in London last year, and Coe, a former Olympic great himself, is convinced Mo is set to rule the world, especially as he set a 1500m European record a week ago. Farah believes he is running even better than last year, and Co agrees, saying: “The great thing he has over everyone else, by a country mile, is that he can run any way he wants. He is going to be incredibly difficult to beat on current form.” Farah appears in the Anniversary Games tomorrow (Saturday) at the same Olympic Stadium in London, where sell-out crowds of 75,000 for each of the three days snapped up tickets in no time. Usain Bolt, the fastest man on earth, is the other main attraction at the Games. The world and Olympic100m champion and world record-holder, will run in that event tonight and the sprint relay tomorrow.

Joshua after Lennox fame

ANTHONY JOSHUA, Britain’s Olympic super-heavyweight champion, has turned pro with Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom promotional company, hoping to follow in the footsteps of Lennox Lewis rather than Audley Harrison. They also won Olympic gold at that weight, but whereas Lewis became undisputed heavyweight king, Harrison failed to put his big-mouth talk into action and has finished as a washed-up flop. Joshua, the modest, 23-year-old Watford boxer, who was wanted by all the leading British promoters after his Games success, tweeted on Wednesday: “I’d like to thank Finchley ABC and I’d also like to thank GB (Olympic) boxing for all they have done for me.”

Saving Frank Lampard…

FRANK LAMPARD, 35 years old and gearing up to inspire Chelsea’s bid for fresh Premier League glory, will be wheeled out for the big games only, according to new manager Jose Mourinho, who wants to get the best out of this great campaigner.

“While I believe he is the same player as he was when I had him nine years ago, he now needs time to recover from match to match,” said Mourinho, back for his second spell at Stamford Bridge and still regarded by the fans as “The Special One”. “He can’t play 60 matches a season, as he did before, but the quality of the player, and what he represents for the way I like to play football is exactly the same.”

Tenerife riding on success of Froome victory T ourism officials celebrate Chris Froome’s victory on the Tour after he had trained on the island.

The rugged volcanic landscapes and high altitude cycle routes of Tenerife proved lucky for British professional cyclists once again as Chris Froome, just like Bradley Wiggins did last year, clinched the prestigious Tour de France title after undertaking weeks of extreme training over here. Teide National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a popular training ground for teams. With altitudes varying from 2,000 to 3,000 metres above sea level, the roads traversing Teide National Park provide the perfect challenge for cyclists and other athletes

wanting to boost their performance in physically-demanding environments. The island’s mild year-round climate also contributes to the perfect environment for training. Miguel Angel Santos, Chief Executive of the Tenerife Tourism Corporation, said: “Mount Teide is Spain’s highest peak and undoubtedly provides a very tough training environment that brings out the very best in athletes. "It can be no coincidence that the last two winners of what is considered the toughest race in sport prepared for it in this territory. We hope that the island will continue to attract both top athletes and other sports enthusiasts following their example.” As well as the most demanding cycle routes on Teide National Park, Tenerife offers a wide network of mountain-

biking tracks of varying difficulty for those who simply want to enjoy a holiday on two wheels. Visitors can enjoy exhilarating rides through amazing volcanic territories, lush valleys and pine tree forests, with the guarantee of mild, sunny weather all year round. Tenerife is rapidly becoming a training mecca for sporting champions,

attracted by the island’s excellent facilities such as the renowned T3 Tenerife Top Training centre, its benign climate and proximity to the UK. Many top athletes, including Olympic medallist Alistair Brownlee, and some of the UK’s Premier League football teams such as Everton or Newcastle have chosen the island for their training.
