FIGURES in last week’s Canarian Weekly stated that 2,375,304 tourists visited Tenerife during the first half of the year.

With the summer holiday season in full swing, the skies above the Island seem as though they’ve never been so busy. So why then are tourists commenting that bars, restaurants and shops seem very quiet compared with last year?

“A L L - I N C LU S I V E , ” you cry. Our aim over the coming weeks is to provoke lively, balanced debate on the subject of the All-Inclusive tourism model, highlighting its impacts on the Island, both positive and negative. Tenerife Cabildo has assisted the Canarian Weekly in supplying data from an Inbound Tourism Survey 2012, produced by the Tourist Board’s research and statistics department. Officials are keen to point out that “Tenerife is not characterised as

a purely All-Inclusive destination, but that All-Inclusive is just one of the many board options available (along with room-only, room and breakfast, halfboard and full-board). “And it is offered in order to adapt to the changing demand for some tourist sectors.” The data provided states: “Since there is a lack of official data for All-Inclusive tourism, the Inbound Tourism Survey estimates that in 2012, 24% of establishments in Tenerife offered AllInclusive packages.

“This corresponds to about 146 establishments, of which 81 are hotels, 17 apart-hotels and 48 apartment complexes.” In 2012, more than 22% of visitors to the Island took advantage of an All-Inclusive option; this equates to an increase of 1.2% on 2011. All-Inclusive was the third-most- common type of board option with visitors, behind half-board (24.4%), and room-only (24.4%). The All-Inclusive option was chosen more Continued on page 3.

All inclusive is EX-clusive

Continued from front. frequently by first-time visitors to Tenerife, but was lower for repeat visitors. However, in 2012 there was a slight rise in the number of repeat visitors opting for AllInclusive, compared with those visiting for the first time. That said, the figure for first-time visitors choosing All-Inclusive in Tenerife over the last five years is higher, at 69%, than the figure for repeat visitors in the same period. The average expenditure at source for All-Inclusive visitors to Tenerife (98.9 euros person per day) was supplemented by an average daily spend

of 25 euros per person once on the Island (almost 13 euros less per day than the average for all visitors). The reason for this was mainly because of lower spending in restaurants, and on food shopping two of the main costs for Tenerife tourists, along with general purchases.” It was made very clear that the All-Inclusive model is promoted and marketed by the tour operators and hotels. The figures are a starting point but, from a lay-person’s view, it must be easier to list the establishments which are NOT All-Inclusive as opposed to those that are. Mark Watson, CEO,

2nd August - 8th August 2013

Tourism Concerns, told Canarian Weekly: “We have initiated and are continuing various pieces of work in relation to All-Inclusive across the globe, both research and impactbased.” There appears to be a general feeling that hoteliers are pressurised by tour operators to adhere to this tourism model. Supportive research illustrates that in some Mediterranean resorts, prices are pushed down continually, and some hoteliers receive as little as 20 euros per person per night for an All-Inclusive stay, out of which they have to provide room, food, drinks, entertainment and cover their overheads etc. Why do it? Tour operators are providing All-Inclusive packages because, they say, it is what the holiday-maker wants. But is it? Yes, for some subsegments of the tourist market in this age of austerity it is the preferred solution, but it should not be implemented, carte blanche, across the board. Tourism Concerns began a survey in May 2012, which highlighted that the respondents felt tour operators benefited the most: 85% agreed and 69% of the respondents felt that local businesses were worse off. Tenerife Cabildo figures support this. The average daily spend per person staying All Inclusive is 13 euros less than a visitor who is not.

That’s 13 euros per day per person not going into the local economy, shops, restaurants, bars, tipping, car rental, taxi drivers, and even down to using public transport. They all lose out to the All Inclusive model. This equates to a large six-figure sum not going into the economy. Tipping, for example, is an important source of revenue for those working in the hospitality industry. The All Inclusive option works well in places where there is a hotel and literally nothing around, which is why it seems to work well in Continental Africa. Otherwise, the All Inclusive model brings the least benefit for local destinations, alienating tourists from the place they are visiting and the people who live there. Ultimately, the tourist needs to decide.

It reverts to “why go on holiday” To stay within a walled complex, with the same people and eat inferior food, or to travel to a destination where every day is different. The only similarity is that you sleep in the same bed for the duration of your stay. Humorous travel writer and author Bill Bryson says: “To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time; to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.” – Tourists can make a difference by opting for holidays which offer a fair deal for local people and businesses and, in turn, have an enriched holiday experience. Tenerife has always prided itself on being a repeat destination, a place where you feel so

welcome that you want to return again and again. However, some readers have told us that their ‘All-Inclusive’ holiday experience was so bad that they would never come back - on any board basis. So surely this tourism model raises some serious questions about sustainability and ethics. And, before you all go into overdrive, we’re not saying it should be banned. But we do feel that everyone should work together to gain an equilibrium, so that families here can work and benefit from tourism, as opposed to getting to a stage of loathing it.

Road-safety changes The Minister for Home Affairs, Jorge Fernández Díaz, declared that a Draft Bill, approved by the Council of Ministers, will partially amend the text of the Law on Traffic, Motor Vehicles and Road Safety with the aim of “Spain increasingly becoming a safer country in terms of road safety”. This reform, according to the minister, will focus on “specific aspects” that will enable us “to tackle the challenge of being a pioneer country in terms of road safety”. The amendments

provided by the new legislation include the mandatory use of those under the age of 18 wearing a helmet when cycling on any kind of road, whether urban or interurban. This obligation will come into force as soon as the law is passed without the need to wait for the implementing regulation. The principle of “zero

tolerance” as regards the presence of drugs in a person’s system is another of the main new amendments included in the draft bill. This clearly differentiates between administrative and criminal offences. The detection of drugs shall be performed through a saliva test and fines will be increased from 500 euros to 1,000 euros if the levels of alcohol established are exceeded or if the presence of drugs in a person’s system is detected. Jorge Fernández Díaz justified the increase in

penalties through the need to fight against one of the main causes of accidents. The new legislation bans radar detection systems and maintains the ban on radar jamming systems. It also modifies child safety systems in vehicles, changing the criterion of age for height in relation to travelling in a vehicle. The reform presented last Friday, according to the minister, will be approved before the end of the year, and will come into force at the beginning of 2014.

Police arrest drugs man

NATIONAL Police arrested a 26-year-old man trying to flee from a police vehicle stop in La Laguna.

Police searched his car and found a 100-gram tablet of hashish, plus a knife and 30 euros in cash.

The wall of death

A 42-YEAR-OLD man died after a wall collapsed on him at a farm in Icod el Alto, Los Realejos.

The emergency services were called and firefighters attempted to rescue him, alas to no avail. He was buried under the rubble in a ditch, a few metres deep and, tragically, he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Dirt-track tragedy

EMERGENCY services, including a rescue helicopter, attended an accident in the Llanos de Trevejo area of Vilaflor, where a 65-year-old man’s vehicle overturned on a dirt track on Tuesday afternoon. Sadly they were unable to save the driver, who died at the scene.

Teenager’s painful fall

Web-learning tool The Cabildo website designed to promote knowledge of the landscape and heritage of the Island has received more than 66,000 visits in just a year and a half.

The site, www.paisajetenerife.es has increased its number of visitors from just 1,100 in March 2012. In total there were more than 26,000 users who have been interested in the contents of this page since its launch. The Cabildo last year introduced the initiative “Tenerife Landscape: Learning Resources”, a website aimed primarily to teachers and Secondary Education students to support the teaching of this educational landscape, with specific references to the island landscape. With this tool is intended to contribute to the knowl-

edge, appreciation and involvement in the conservation of the landscape of Tenerife, especially those of the future generation. This educational material on-line is divided into different sections, allowing, for example, that the user accesses a file on defining conceptual, scientific study or classification of the landscape, among other topics. They can also use maps, photo gallery, links and supplementary materials to support and complement learning. You can also test your knowledge in an entertaining way through six interactive activities, with names such as “Guess where is”, “Journey to the past” or “Enhancement of the Landscape”. It also features a news section that provides useful information about the landscape in general, with special attention to developments concerning the insular landscape.

For the new school year, the council will offer, as a sideline to this tool, an educational workshop called “P @ isajeando” that directly addresses classroom issues such as what is the landscape, what are its characteristics in Tenerife and how is the relationship between

citizens and the landscape. With this action, the council continues to promote awareness and training in landscape, to promote the knowledge and enjoyment of the landscape, as a right of society, but also as a shared duty regarding their conservation and improvement.

Drug swoop THE National Police and the Tax Office have dealt a new blow against cocaine trafficking from South America destined for the Canary Islands with the apprehension of a sailboat laden with 500 kilos of cocaine off the coast of the Cape Verde The network has been dismantled, three boats have been seized, several luxury cars, 40,000 euros in cash, satellite telecommunications terminal and even gold bars.

The gang were moving large consignments of drugs from South America, with a stop in Cape Verde where they were stored until it was possible to send smaller amounts of the drug to the Canaries. The police chief, Ignacio Cosidó, along with a special delegate of the tax office in the Canaries, Carmen Guillen, responsible for the research, discussed and shared the information relating to the case at Canarian Police Headquarters this week.

Tourist information still proves popular THE Tenerife tourist information offices, Infotén have received 533,176 visits in the first six months of 2013, representing an increase of 8.24 percent over the same period last year.

The Puerto de la Cruz office has received the most tourists in that period, 81.825, followed by

Arona-Las Vistas, which received 39,441 visitors. La Laguna, recorded 34,374 and Arona, Los Cristianos, recorded a total of 32,830 users. Vice President and Chief Cabildo Insular de Turismo, Carlos Alonso, explained that every year “we surpass the number of tourists who attend the Infotén network, which shows that they do an adequate job to meet the demands our visitors. “ In this sense, Alonso stressed that “we will

continue enhancing the quality of our information offices because it is the main tool of communication with travellers.” In classification by nationality, the British are those who made the most use of the offices, with 146,740 visitors, ahead of Spanish (131,534), Germans (114,940) and France (42,454). People request information about the schedule and routes of the buses, 85,120 queries, followed by leisure-

related (attractions, tours boat, etc.) with 30,507, Teide (23,439) and cultural events, 18,909 requests. Other questions related to specific directions, taxis, rental cars or shipping. Tenerife maps, brochures and guides of municipalities are some of the materials requested by users. The Infotén network currently has 44 offices spread throughout the island, which serve nearly five million tourists who visit the island each year.

Tomatina numbers squashed! WORLDWIDE tourists flocking to this month’s annual Tomatina festival will need tickets to take part in the astonishing tomato fight.

The annual festival on 28th August in the small Spanish village of Buñol, in Valencia, has been drawing bigger and bigger crowds each year, causing chaos for the authorities.

Last year more than 45,000 revellers went to the village to be pummelled with tomatoes. So to reduce the numbers this year for safety’s sake, authorities have introduced a ticketing system. A 10-euro entry fee is being imposed and just 20,000 tickets issued. Of those, 15,000 will be available to the general public and the remainder reserved for locals. Tickets are on sale at latomatina.info/en/buytickets/

The 2014 Carnival poster entitled “Agüitaaaaa” by Juan Pedro Hidalgo Sabina, has been chosen as the poster for the next edition of the Carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife. It was unanimously agreed by the jury appointed for the purpose by the Autonomous Party and Recreation (OAFAR). The winning poster will represent the dedicated to The Cartoons. The poster presentation was given by the Santa Cruz Mayor, José Manuel Bermúdez and the Councillor responsible for OAFAR, Fernando Ballesteros. The ceremony was also attended by the Councillor for Culture, Clara Segura, and Carmen Delia Albert and Jose Carlos Acha, plus the artistic director of Carnival, Juan Carlos Armas. The poster was chosen from five finalists, who had been previously selected by the same jury, from 46 entries to the contest. Initially, the winner was going to be chosen via public internet vote, but this process was suspended following a fraud detected in the system. José Manuel Bermúdez acknowledged the assistance of the many representatives of Carnival groups and congratulated the winner for his efforts and dedication in his entry. “This work reflects representing our Carnival, relaxed and innovative,” said the mayor.” Meanwhile, Fernando Ballesteros joined in the thanks, especially to the jury, “who have had a huge job choosing the finalists”. He added: “In selecting

the winning poster, we carried out a comparison with all the previous posters, looking for originality and innovation. “Bold and groundbreaking are the two adjectives that define it perfectly.” Finally, Juan Pedro Hidalgo explained that at the time of making his poster it was based on modern and contemporary concepts of animation “for a work full of movement and a lot of strength.” “It also is designed with a criterion of animation, as it can use television to promote,” he said. The winning work has been digitally produced, with professional graphic programmes. A digital sculpting programme has been used, giving an effect of water in the proximity of the city to the sea. Carnival 2014 will be dedicated to a cartoon theme and begin on February 28th and will last until March 9th, Domingo de Piñata.

Take care of your passport MORE than 6,000 emergency passports were issued to Brits in Spain last year, triggering an alert by the British Embassy.

The 6,005 issued by British Consulates was more than one-fifth (22%) of the Foreign Office world total. Now, the Embassy is warning British expats to take care of their passports, check the expiry date and renew them in good time. In May alone this year, 493 emergency passports were issued to British nationals in Spain, including 280 as a result of theft (mainly bag theft), car breakins, burglary and pickpocketing. Of the 213 emergency passports issued for other reasons, 14% were because full passports had expired. Expats should check their passports’ expiry dates and make a note to renew them up to nine months earlier, says Will Middleton, new Consular Regional Director for Spain. “Living overseas, it can be easy to think that you don’t need your

passport, or to forget to renew it,” he said. “But if you need to travel at short notice, getting an emergency passport is both costly - currently 116 euros and time-consuming, which can add further to what may already be a stressful situation. “And you will still need to renew your full passport when you get back.” Many people fear that renewing a passport before it expires means they will “lose out” on validity for which they have paid. In fact any remaining validity on your existing passport

(up to a total of nine months) will be added to the new one. Circumstances in which British expatriates can find themselves needing emergency passports vary from the death or serious illness of a loved one, through to job opportunities put at risk. For example, a resident was offered a job interview in Germany only to discover his passport had expired. Others have been forced to cancel “holidays of a lifetime” for lack of a valid passport. One customer, who had already suffered five lost or stolen passports

over the years - and received a warning from the Passport Service decided to keep the latest one safe by storing it in the freezer. Unfortunately it got wet, so he had to get yet another emergency one. Applying for a new passport is simple: download the application form and guidance notes from www.gov. uk/overseas-passports, complete them at home and send them off with your photographs. A new passport generally takes a minimum of four weeks from when the application is received.

Spanish King plays get-out-of-jail card!

THE king of Morocco released 48 Spaniards from prison following a special request by his Spanish counterpart, Juan Carlos, on Tuesday. It came during the Spanish king’s first official engagement abroad since having surgery on a trapped spinal disc. King Juan Carlos showed King Mohammed VI a petition with 67,000 signatures calling for the release of a 67-yearold retired lorry driver, Antonio García Vidriel. He had been in jail for months over an offence he says he did not commit. The petition also called for the release of other Spanish people serving time in Morocco, which King Mohammed VI accepted appropriately on Throne Day, a national holiday to celebrate his accession to the throne 14 years ago. Most of Morocco’s foreign prisoners are Spanish and the nature of their offences varies, but they are usually for smuggling or consuming marijuana. King Juan Carlos says this latest development is “a clear sign of the great friendship” the two Royal heads of State and the two countries have with each other.

Tenerife Sunshine display top cruises with Fred. Olsen

LAST week, past, present and potentially future customers of local Tenerifebased travel company Tenerife Sunshine were invited to a special cruise presentation.

It was organised in conjunction with UKbased Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines at Restaurante Margarita, in Los Cristianos. The event showcased the cruise lines’ new programme of itineraries, departing from Santa Cruz and starting on 26th November. The event, which was attended by over 50 customers, was led by Tenerife Sunshine Director Vanessa Pindoria and Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines’ International Sales Manager Kate Wooldridge. Attendees were given a warm welcome by Vanessa, before Kate began an introduction presentation on Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines. Informing potential guests of the liners’

background, from beginnings as a Norwegian-based shipping company to the present-day operations as a global cruise line, Kate gave them an insight into Fred. Olsen, while highlighting the new programme of cruises. Fred. Olsen will be basing the company’s 929-guest ship Braemar at Santa Cruz Port from 26th November until 3rd May 2014. The new programme of cruises include: Cape Verdes and West Africa,

2nd August - 8th August 2013

for 14 nights; Madeira, Morocco and the Canaries, for 11 nights; Senegal, Gambia and Cape Verdes, for 11 nights, and a Canaries and Madeira cruise for 7 nights. Fred. Olsen’s fleet of four cruise ships - Black Watch, Braemar, Boudicca and Balmoral - is ideally suited to the traditional British cruise guest. With everything on board priced in pounds sterling, there is a definite “home-from-home” feel throughout.

Ferrari fraudsters forced off the road

CUSTOMERS who bought cut-price Ferraris in Spain were aware they were not the real deal.

But when Ferrari found out, the gang responsible for making them were prosecuted for a “breach of industrial property rights”. Police seized 17 models from two warehouses in Madrid after receiving a complaint from the Italian manufacturer. The cars were sold for just 40,000 euros to people who knew they were not genuine, Eight men, from Madrid and Valencia, built lookalike models, including Ferrari F430s (true cost: 134,000 euros) and F458 Spiders (198,000 euros), plus two Aston Martins. And they even customised the machines to order. Police are hoping to trace cars previously sold by the gang which, they believe, may have been shipped abroad.

Weather Outlook

On Thursday morning viewers of BBC Breakfast were left shocked after a picture complete with ‘penis graffiti’ appeared on the their screens shortly before 8.30am. The clip was obviously aired by mistake during the item which BBC Presenter Louise Minchin was introducing about a Londonbased theatre quartet called Barbershopera. It included a clip from the official video of their song ‘I could have married Kate’. The clip was of a coffee table complete with

newspapers and magazines. However one had been ‘comically’ altered to show the Duke of Cambridge with a pair of specs and a beard.

The BBC apologised for the graffiti, saying: ‘We failed to spot the offending material [in the video]. We apologise for this.’

German youngster’s death leap A GERMAN tourist jumped to his death after “balconing” while holidaying on the Costa Brava, in Lloret de Mar. The youngster, as yet unnamed, leapt from a fifth-floor hotel balcony at around 1am on Tuesday. But he failed to land in the swimming pool, as planned. Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident, and. in particu-

Page 10

lar, whether he had been drinking or taking drugs. Only last week, Spanish police launched a campaign on social networks, warning about the dangers of balconing following another incident. It happened in Magaluf when a 21-year-old Briton was left seriously ill in hospital following a leap from his hotel balcony after a night out boozing with his pals. Four Brits were killed

in the same Mallorcan resort last year in similar hotel falls and others seriously injured. These daredevil exploits are usually carried out by drunken revellers - usually young Brits - especially in popular resort towns such as Magaluf and San Antonio, in Ibiza. Several cases of permanent brain damage causing paralysis and loss of faculties have hit the headlines after tourists landed head-first on concrete.

Don’t let your Dream Home be swept away by the Spanish Inheritance Tax MOST owners are not aware that their beneficiaries and their estate may have to pay Inheritance Tax, both in their country of domicile and in Spain.

Spanish law dictates that the beneficiary of your estate must pay tax on the amount they inherit. The level of tax payable is not a fixed rate and is determined by the relationship to the deceased, their residency status and their existing wealth in Spain. In addition, the estate of the deceased could be liable to pay Inheritance Tax in their country of domicile. For example, if the deceased were UK domiciled and had worldwide assets in excess of £325,000, then the Estate could also be liable for Inheritance Tax at 40%, payable in the UK.

Page 12

What are the options to minimise the liability? Unfortunately, it is common practice for lawyers and tax advisers who are not conversant with both jurisdictions to advise based on their own, often insufficient, knowledge. We have known of cases in the past where property owners in Spain have been advised to prepare a Spanish Will to avoid the tax. But as the tax is paid by the person inheriting the asset, the existence of a Will does nothing to minimise this. There are also times when the existence of a separate Will in Spain complicates matters and increases legal costs. It is key, then, that all British owners of Spanish property have a UK Will dealing with their worldwide assets, thereby making another Will elsewhere unnecessary. Another misconception is that simply taking out a mortgage on

the property will reduce the tax liability on death. It is true that the value of the asset will be reduced by the amount outstanding on the mortgage. However, the Banks often insist that life policies are taken out which pay off the mortgage on death, which means the beneficiaries are back to inheriting the whole of the unencumbered property. Even if there is no life policy, then there is a substantial debt outstanding which will have to be paid before

the property can be transferred. Finally, the most dangerous option put forward is to transfer the property to your children or beneficiaries now. The Spanish tax is payable not only on the inheritance of a property but also the gifting of a property, so the tax would be paid sooner rather than later. Also, once the property is in the names of your beneficiaries, then you have to be able to trust that they will not dispose or charge your asset and leave you homeless.

Issues of insolvency, divorce and your beneficiary pre-deceasing you can also add complications to what appeared to be a simple transaction. The solution Quite simply, you invest your Spanish property into your own UK Company (Wincham can supply), of which you will be the director and shareholder and have total control. Contrary to popular belief, there would be no 7-10% Property Transfer Tax payable on this transaction. Our method enables

you to utilise Spanish legislation to conveniently own and maintain your home within a corporate structure in the most tax-efficient way. Unlike an offshore company which creates an additional 3% tax burden each year, the UK is not classed as offshore and, in line with EU treaties, cannot charge UK companies the 3% tax.

HARRY POTTER author JK Rowling, who was exposed as writing under a pen name, has accepted a charity donation from a law firm.

She brought proceedings in London’s High Court against Chris Gossage, a partner at Russells, and his friend, Judith Callegari, for breaching her confidentiality. Jenny Afia, acting for Ms Rowling, told Mr Justice Tugendhat that the author was revealed in the Sunday Times as the writer of crime novel The Cuckoo’s Calling. It was published in April under the pen name of Robert Galbraith. A few days later, Rus-

sells contacted her agent, disclosing that Mr Gossage had divulged the confidential information to Ms Callegari, who then shared it on Twitter with a journalist.

2nd August - 8th August 2013

Ms Afia said Ms Rowling, who was not in court, “has been left dismayed and distressed by such a fundamental betrayal of trust”. Mr Gossage, Ms Callegari and Russells all

apologised, and the company agreed to reimburse Ms Rowling’s legal costs and make a payment by way of damages to the Soldiers Charity, formerly the Army Benevolent Fund. Ms Rowling said she

always intended for a share of royalties to go to charity. A statement on her behalf said that all global net royalties, which would otherwise have been paid to her from book sales of The Cuckoo’s , would be donated to The Soldiers’ Charity for three years. She said: “This donation is being made to The Soldiers’ Charity partly as a thank you to the Army people who helped me with research, but also because writing a hero who is a veteran has given me an even greater appreciation and understanding of exactly how much this charity does for exservicemen and their families, and how much that support is needed. “I always intended to give The Soldiers’ Charity a donation out of Robert’s royalties, but

I had not anticipated him making the bestseller list a mere three months after publication. Indeed, I had not counted on him ever being there.” Major General Martin Rutledge, the charity’s Chief Executive, said: “We are absolutely thrilled by the extraordinary generosity of JK Rowling, who is such an internationally-renowned author. “This donation will make a huge difference to the lives of thousands of soldiers, former soldiers and their families, who are in real need.” He added: “Her tremendous show of support for The Soldiers’ Charity will help to remind people of the many sacrifices made by our soldiers, long after any news of Afghanistan has left the front page.”

Nigella divorce hots up Power your home for nothing on Saturdays BRITISH GAS owner Centrica plans to offer free power on Saturdays to certain customers.

The chosen ones must be willing to concentrate their energy use at weekends, when overall demand is low. The scheme, which could be introduced next year, is bound to shake up Britain’s consumer electricity market. Proposals for the new energy tariff are identical to a range of deals already on offer to US customers of Direct Energy - the British Gas sister company in North America. Centrica’s US retail business has already pioneered the free electricity concept on TELEVISION chef Nigella Lawson and her multi-millionaire husband, Charles Saatchi, have moved a step closer to getting a quick-fire divorce. At a London’s High Court hearing on Wednesday, which lasted under a minute, District Judge Anne Aitken granted the couple a decree nisi the first legal step to ending their 10-year marriage. Art collector Mr Saatchi and Ms Lawson will finalise their divorce with a decree absolute, usually issued six

weeks and a day later. The hearing came barely a month after a Sunday newspaper printed photographs of 70-yearold Saatchi with his hands around his wife’s throat during an argument, later described by him as “a playful tiff”. They are understood to have signed a prenuptial agreement when they wed in 2003. Together, they are said to be worth £150m and share an £11.8m home in Chelsea. But they have issued a statement saying no financial claims will be made by either side.

Mr Saatchi, in a bid to hold on to his multi-million-pound art collection, has been negotiating directly with 53-year-old Nigella’s lawyer, Fiona Shackleton, who has acted on behalf of the Royal Family and Sir Paul McCartney in the past. Nigella promptly moved out of their home after the incident and rented an apartment with her son, Bruno. Mr Saatchi, reckoned to be worth over £100m, agreed to accept a police caution for assault after the picture came to light.

Saturdays through annual contracts billed “Free Power Saturday” in the north-east of the US. And it has also introduced a version of the deal to Texas consumers. The tariffs are designed to encourage US consumers to use power-hungry devices such as washing machines and tumble dryers at the weekend when industrial demand is lower. Centrica also offers free power on Sundays as an alternative to Saturdays in Pennsylvania. The option of a weekend tariff pitched at half the unit cost of Monday-Friday electricity is also available. Sam Laidlaw, Centrica Chief Executive, said that free energy

tariffs could be offered to UK consumers by early next year to help ease criticism of the utility and its rivals for introducing inflationbusting during the winter. However, consumers would need to have a “smart” meter installed before switching to the weekend tariff. Though smart-meter installation in the UK is relatively new, British Gas has obtained a clear lead among the “big six” utility groups by fitting over one million so far. Politicians have been urging power companies to help consumers lower their bills as they try to tackle voters’ displeasure at the rising cost of UK living. Prime Minister David Cameron promised last year to force energy companies to put all customers on their lowest tariff. However, his attempt has been negated because of concessions by the regulator, which will see companies offering different deals, dependant on the type of energy meter used by customers. Mr Laidlaw also argued that consumers switching much of their weekly power use to the weekend would help Britain meet environmental targets for reducing carbon emissions.

Mums set to suffer from predicted pump price surge over summer R esearch from RAC shows mums feel most impacted by high fuel cost.

Mums are most likely to feel the brunt of a predicted sharp increase in the cost of fuel over the summer as world oil prices rise and the pound drops against the dollar, according to the RAC. Analysis of the raw data from the RAC’s Report on Motoring 2013 reveals that nearly two thirds (63%) of mums feel their lifestyle has significantly suffered because of the existing high cost of fuel – 10% above dads and 12% above the national average. Consumers have enjoyed a brief respite from rising fuel prices at the pump over recent months, however, analysts agree this is set to change with a more volatile picture over the

holiday season – and in particular a predicted 3p hike in the coming weeks. The impact of any rising fuel cost is most likely to be felt by mums planning summer holiday activities such as trips to the beach, national parks and other such destinations with children. Further RAC research shows that 43%* of motorists are planning to use their car to take them on holiday. The Report on Motoring, which was launched

2nd August - 8th August 2013

in June, already revealed that a third of mums (33%) say they have either stopped, or would have to stop, using their car to carry out family commitments. This includes activities such as visiting elderly relatives or transporting their children if, as expected, the cost of motoring continues to rise. Following the introduction of the EU Gender Directive in May 2013, which enforces insurers to disregard gender when calculat-

ing insurance rates, premiums for many female drivers have increased. The Report on Motoring shows 38% of mums have seen their premiums go up in the past 12 months compared to only 29% of dads. Justine Roberts, CEO and co-founder Mumsnet, the UK’s largest network for parents, said the findings were not a surprise. She said: “Many Mumsnet users are juggling the rising costs of essentials like childcare, food prices and utility bills, and the cost of running a car can be a big financial pressure, particularly since the hike in car insurance premiums for women under the EU Gender Directive.” The report shows that fifth of mums (20%) would be forced to give up their car to carry out shopping for essential items such as food and a quarter (24%) have had to cut back on using their car for conduct-

ing elements of their social life such as visiting friends. More than a fifth (22%) said they have or would stop commuting to work, compared to 15% of the national average. RAC technical director David Bizley said: “This forecast rise in fuel will be a devastating blow for families planning their annual holidays – and our research shows that mums will feel the pinch more than any other group. “Every day motorists across the UK are being forced to make difficult choices in an effort to save money, but it is clear that mums are making the greatest sacrifices, particularly when it comes to the use of their car. “With mums often looking after the household budget it seems they are sacrificing certain aspects of their lives in an effort to save money and to ensure the rest of the

family doesn’t go without. “There is also the impact of rising insurance premiums which is clearly adding to their desire to try to reduce the use of their car. “Never has there been a more expensive time to be a motorist and we will continue to lobby the Government alongside FairFuelUK to raise awareness of the hardship faced by the UK’s motorists and ultimately drive down costs at the pumps.” Parents who are struggling with the cost of fuel and motoring in general can turn to Mumsnet,com for top tips on making money go further in your car. Justine said: “There are lots of discussions on our site about how to make ends meet, whether it’s car-pooling for the school run or cutting down on supermarket shops, and fuel efficiency is a priority when buying a family friendly car.”

Tories bid to lift perils of high-street parking

THE double yellow-line menace, which haunts drivers in every British town and city, could soon help enhance trade in high street shops.

Under proposals sure to put a smile back on the faces of traders and drivers alike, parking on double yellow lines for 15 minutes would be permitted. Communities Secretary Eric Pickles is keen to introduce a “grace period”, enabling motorists to pop into local shops without being hit by hefty penalties. And to strengthen support for the idea, higher fines could be introduced outside London for motorists who park dangerously. A source close to Mr Pickles told The Daily Telegraph: “The high street is in danger of shrinking or dying off, and over-aggressive parking-enforcement is part of the reason why. “If people are worried about paying a fortune in parking fines, it will make them more likely to do their shop online, or go to out-of-town shopping centres. “For too long, parking has been a revenue-raiser - and it’s time to end that.” The source added:

“There is room for a deal (with the Lib Dems). Dangerous parking is a menace to people, whereas if you’re in the parking bay or just on the side of the road, you’re not presenting any risk.” Local Government Minister Brandon Lewis said: “Councils need to play their part in reining back in the over-zealous culture of municipal parking enforcement. “They should adopt a common-sense approach. Ministers are considering what fur-

ther steps can be taken to ensure that town-hall parking policies and practices support local high streets.” But Lib Dems have been quick to warn that the plans could be flawed, and they are said to keen on raising the current £70 cap on fines for all illegal parking outside London. Lib Dem Transport Minister Norman Baker told Sky News: “The idea of actually having cars parked for a very long period of time on

a double yellow line actually undermines the purpose of a double yellow line, and I am advised it is unworkable.” In contrast, though, Lib Dem Business Secretary Vince Cable said: “I have a lot of sympathy with what Eric Pickles is trying to do. “I think a lot of small businesses are driven to distraction by overzealous enforcement of parking rules, so I think a little bit of common sense and flexibility is very much to be welcomed.”

A Tory source added: “It seems that Norman Baker is increasingly isolated, fighting a oneman war against motorists that is out of sync with the rest of the coalition.” For all the political bickering, the yellowline proposal received a mixed reception from the motoring industry. Edmund King, AA president, said: “Rather than just allow drivers to park on double yellow lines, a thorough review of the lines would be more effective.

“Many double lines are there for historical reasons and could be lifted. There is plenty of opportunity to ease back on the signs and lines in many places, giving drivers short-term waiting bays instead, so they can stop briefly to buy a paper or loaf of bread.” Mr King added: “Local authorities should be encouraged to do what the Government does with regulations - ‘one in, one out’ - so that yellow lines do not run out of control. “Lifting restrictions on yellow lines should not be an excuse for hiking parking penalties outside London.” Professor Stephen Glaister, RAC Foundation Director, joined the argument, saying: “We should be careful what we wish for. “Drivers are already able to make limited stops on double yellow lines - and, while we support a commonsense approach to parking policy, businesses are as likely to be adversely affected by a parking free-for-all as they are by draconian restrictions.” The Government has previously issued guidance to councils, encouraging them to attract shoppers by setting competitive parking charges, and urging them to improve the quality of town-centre parking.

Day 2001. Majella has two children from a previous marriage, 25-year-old Michael and Siobhan, 22.

Fugitive Leaves Moscow Airport US intelligence whistleblower Edward Snowden has left the transit zone of Moscow Airport where he’s been living for over a month after being granted a year’s asylum in Russia.

He’s lived in the transit zone of Sheremetyevo airport outside Moscow since he flew in from Hong Kong on the 23rd June. “Over the past eight weeks we have seen the Obama administration show no respect for international or domestic law, but in the end the law is winning,” he said in a statement posted on WikiLeaks, the anti-secrecy website.

“I thank the Russian Federation for granting me asylum in accordance with its laws and international obligations.”

30-year-old Snowden, is wanted by the US on felony charges after leaking details of vast surveillance programmes, but

Russia has refused to extradite him. A White House spokesman said the US was “extremely disappointed” with

the decision and was considering whether to cancel a planned summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Snowden left the airport in a taxi. His lawyer Anatoly Kucherena said he would not reveal his client’s travel plans “for security reasons”, adding: “He is the most pursued man on the planet. He himself will decide where he will go.” Mr Kucherena said Mr Putin approved Snowden’s asylum request on condition the American stopped leaking US secrets, adding that his client had agreed to the condition. WikiLeaks, which provided the whistleblower with a legal adviser during his stay at the airport, said Russia had “done the

right thing” by granting him temporary asylum. Julian Assange, who founded the website, said: “This is another victory in the fight against Obama’s war on whistleblowers. This battle has been won, but the war continues. “The United States can no longer continue the surveillance of world citizens and its digital colonisation of sovereign nations. The public will no longer stand for it. “Whistleblowers will continue to appear until the government abides by its own laws and rhetoric.” Snowden’s case has further strained ties between the US and Russia, with the countries already split over Syria, Russia’s human rights record and other issues.

Castro sentenced The trial is taking place in America of Ohio kidnapper Ariel Castro, who has been sentenced to life in prison, without parole and 1,000 years consecutive sentences.

In court Castro said that he knew his actions were wrong, but that he’s not a violent person and that his captives asked for sex and were not tortured. “I’m not a monster. I’m a normal person. I just have an addiction,” he was reported as saying during the sentence hearing. Earlier, victim Michelle Knight addressed the court and her former captor, telling Castro he faced an “eternity in hell”. The 32-year-old Knight was the first woman abducted by Castro in 2002 after he lured her into his house with the promise of a puppy for her son. “I will overcome all that has happened, but you will face hell for

Norwich lake death eternity,” she added. “I will live on. You will die a little every day.” “I spent 11 years in hell. Now your hell is just beginning,” Ms Knight read from a prepared statement. The former school bus driver, has pleaded guilty to 937 charges, including kidnapping, rape, assault and aggravated murder. Castro apologised to the three woman he kept captive, subjecting them to years of sexual and physical abuse. The three women disappeared separately between the years of 2002 and 2004, when they were 14, 16 and 20

2nd August - 8th August 2013

years old respectively. They were held captive for a decade. Ms Knight, 32, Amanda Berry, 27, and Gina DeJesus, 23, escaped in May, and Castro was arrested within hours. He said, “I just hope they find it in their hearts to forgive me and do some research on people who have addictions, and see how addictions take over their lives.” Prosecutors are expected to detail Castro’s daily assaults on the women, recounted in diaries that compared the women’s experience to that of prisoners of war.

Police have refused to rule out suicide or “something untoward” after a woman’s body has been found in a lake at the University of East Anglia in Norwich.

The body was discovered by a local fisherman at 8.40am on Thursday morning in a part of the university known as the University of East Anglia (UEA) Broad; a campus site which is to the west of the city. Police have described the death of a woman found dead in a lake on the grounds of a university in Norwich as

“unexplained”. Detective Chief Inspector Dennis Lacey, leading the inquiry into the death, said they have no idea how long the woman’s body had been in the water. Speaking at a press conference, where he was appealing for help to try to identify the woman, he refused to rule out suicide or whether something “untoward” had happened to her. He described it only as an “unexplained death”. “We are unable to put an age to the female or how long the body has been in the water. We are hoping we can conduct a post-mortem this evening with a view to revealing those details.” He added that the

woman was fully clothed but would give no further details of her attire other than to say she was wearing “day clothes”. The lake is man-made and not part of the river network, and swimming is not permitted there. The area is accessible and used by the public. While some summer camps are currently being held on the campus, most students have left for the summer holidays. A UEA spokeswoman said: “We were informed that a body was reported in University Broad shortly before 9.00am. “We have no further details at this time. The university will be fully supporting the police with their inquiries.”

Ryanair are grabbing summer bagful of cash RYANAIR, the no-frills, lowbudget airline has upped its charges for luggage.

Passengers taking luggage for the plane’s hold will pay a 20-euro increase, from 30 euros to 50 euros (£43.60), but for the summer months only. “That’s when they are likely to bring more bags,” said Chief Executive Michael O’Leary, who made the announcement at the height of the holiday getaway on Wednesday. He also told the news conference in London that his company in-

Page 20

tended to increase baggage charges until no one took a Ryanair flight with hold luggage. He said Ryanair had reduced the number of passengers who checked in hold baggage from 80% to 19%, which was saving the airline “a fortune in money”. When asked if Ryanair would consider charging for hand-luggage, Mr O’Leary replied: “At some point in the future, I think it’s likely that airlines will do it. “But I can’t get my head round how you would do it. I think it’s unlikely that we will do it.” Ryanair also an-

nounced this week that its pilots would increase flight times by two min-

utes to cut fuel bills, amounting to an annual saving of around £70m.

But when asked if he were considering reducing the air-conditioning on his flights, the airline’s chief said: “No, even I would not do that.” Just 48 hours earlier, the airline confirmed a first-quarter, year-onyear, profit drop of 21%, despite a growth in passenger numbers. Ryanair blamed the timing of Easter and the impact of a French airtraffic controllers’ strike in June, while its fuel costs rose 6%. Ryanair also confirmed that from the end of October, it was adding one extra daily flight to its five main Ireland-UK

routes: from Dublin to Stansted, Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Bristol. The airline said it was in direct response to similar flight increases announced by Aer Lingus recently. Ryanair’s attempts to take over the Irish national flag-carrier have been blocked repeatedly on competition grounds. But Mr O’Leary described the Competition Commission’s inquiry into the proposal as “misguided”. He added: “It’s a political farce which has no case, no evidence and no credibility, either.”

The Field Of Blood

Thursday 8 August, BBC1, 21.00 Set against a backdrop of the miners’ strike and the changing face of 1980s journalism, award-winning crime-drama The Field Of Blood returns with a stellar cast, including David Morrissey, Katherine Kelly, Jayd Johnson and Ford Kiernan. Glasgow, 1984 - Paddy Meehan now has her dream job as a news reporter working alongside George McVie. But all this changes with the arrival of new Editor-in-Chief, Maloney, a no-nonsense woman in a man’s world, determined to bring the newspaper into the modern age - against editor Murray Devlin’s wishes. With Maloney and Devlin at loggerheads in the newsroom, an innocuous call about a disturbance in an affluent part of the city leads Paddy and McVie to uncover dirty tricks, police corruption, a government cover-up and cold blooded murder. Initially told by the police it’s a domestic disturbance, Paddy’s interest is spiked when she recognises the female victim as a well-known human rights lawyer, Vhairi Burnett. And when, next morning, news breaks that Vhairi has been found murdered, Paddy spots an opportunity to report the news story of a lifetime. But her investigation will bring conflict to the newsroom as well as putting herself and McVie in grave danger as powerful forces attempt to silence the truth. Paddy Meehan is played by Jayd Johnson, George McVie by Ford Kiernan, Maloney by Katherine Kelly, Murray Devlin by David Morrissey. Also starring Amy Manson, David Hayman and Michael Nardone.

The week's remaining contestants face the first of the quarter-finals, as the battle for a place in the final eight reaches its climax. They must cook a faultless two-course meal, judged not only by John and Gregg but also by two past Celebrity MasterChef champions in the shape of former England rugby captain Phil Vickery, who won in 2011, and actress Lisa Faulkner, who took the trophy in 2010. They are also joined by 2009 finalist Andi Peters; all three know exactly what standards to expect. With their last chances to impress their way to the next round, emotions in the kitchen are running high and the pressure proves too much for some contestants. The celebrity guest judges deliver some frank and cutting responses to some dishes, but others fare much better in the firing line. Only the best can go through to the final eight and become a step closer to winning the title of Celebrity MasterChef 2013. For those who don't make the grade, the journey ends here.

09:35.................... Great British Budget Menu Three of Britain's leading chefs come face-to-face with one of the most pressing issues of our times: food poverty. Recent research estimates that nearly five million people in the UK are struggling to feed themselves properly and eat nutritiously. Great British Budget Menu goes straight to the heart of the problem as James Martin, Angela Hartnett and Richard Corrigan live with three households where people are finding it hard to make ends meet. Food prices have risen by 25% in the last five years, hitting household budgets hard. The chefs discover how tough it is for a pensioner to put food on the table and the difficulties working parents face cooking tasty, nutritious food for themselves and their children when supermarket offers on cheap convenience foods look tempting on their limited resources. Richard Corrigan visits a family of six in Mansfield who, on average, have just ÂŁ1.66 per day to feed each member of the family.

We return to Lytchett Health Polo Club to see if owner Rob Brockett has managed to train failed race horse Victor to become a polo pony.

Michael Portillo takes to the tracks with a copy of George Bradshaw's Victorian Railway Guidebook. Portillo travels the length and breadth of the country to see how the railways changed us, and what of Bradshaw's Britain remains. Following the route of the Great Eastern Line, Michael visits Essex to discover why dairy herds travelled there by rail from all over the country in the 19th century, visits Waltham Cross to see how the gunpowder made there fuelled the building of an empire, and heads to Hackney to uncover the gruesome details of the first murder on a train.

Four Rooms Channel 4, 20:00

Members of the public attempt to sell their curious collectables for life-changing 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.

David Starkey's Music and Monarchy BBC2, 20:10

Dr David Starkey's exploration of how the monarchy shaped Britain's music reaches the 18th century, when Great Britain became a dominant military and economic power, and the century which brought us patriotic classics such as God Save the King - the world's first national anthem - and Rule Britannia. Yet this was a time when the monarchy had never been more fragile, having lost much of its political and religious power and imported its ruling house from abroad. Featuring specially recorded performances from Westminster Abbey Choir and a full baroque orchestra of Handel's Hallejulah Chorus and Zadok The Priest. Plus, the Academy of Ancient Music performs extracts from Handel's operas and other works. Soloists joining the performances include Elin Manahan Thomas, singing 'Eternal Source of Light Divine'. Also featuring the first public performance for 300 years of the music written for the Act of Union in 1707 - sung by the choir of St Paul's Cathedral, just as it was back then.

Coming soon - Big School

Big School, a new 6x30-minute series for BBC One set in a secondary school, is a comedy about a dysfunctional staff room, unrequited love and interactive white boards. David Walliams (Little Britain, Come Fly With Me, Mr Stink) plays 40-something chemistry teacher Mr Church, who has taught at Greybridge School for years. Catherine Tate (The Catherine Tate Show, The Office USA, Doctor Who) plays the school’s enthusiastic new recruit, Miss Postern, who despite being a French teacher has never actually been to France. Philip Glenister (Life On Mars, Mad Dogs, Cranford) plays the lothario gym teacher Mr Gunn, whilst Frances de la Tour (Rising Damp, The History Boys, Harry Potter movies) will play Ms Baron, the no-nonsense, plain-speaking headmistress of Greybridge School. Joanna Scanlan (The Thick Of It, Getting On, Little Britain) plays Mrs Klebb, the nosey and interfering drama teacher, while Steve Speirs (Eragon, Extras, Cemetery Junction) plays Mr Barber, the pessimistic geography teacher who’s counting down the days until he can retire. Finally, Daniel Rigby (Eric & Ernie, Ideal, Black Mirror) plays Mr Martin, the mod-like music teacher who desperately wants to be mates with the kids and still clings to his dream of becoming a rock star. Mark Freeland, BBC Head of In-House Comedy, says: “Led by David Walliams, it’s an absolute privilege to work with such a brilliant cast and off-screen production team. Like my Latin GCSE, nothing can go wrong. At least that’s what I thought at the time.” Big School is a BBC Production in association with Bert Productions. The production team behind David Walliams’ last outing on BBC One, the BAFTA nominated Mr Stink, reunite to make Big School which is produced by Jo Sargent and executive produced by Mark Freeland. Big School is directed by Tony Dow (Only Fools And Horses, Nighty Night, Hunderby).

14:00 ..........................BBC News 14:10 ............................Escape to the Country 14:55 .........................Earthflight Special programme looking at the techniques used in the production of Earthflight. To fly like a bird, Earthflight not only captured remarkable images of wild flocks but also relied on some extraordinary relationships between people and birds. Filmed over four years, in six continents and more than 40 countries, the Earthflight team used many extraordinary techniques. For some of the unique flying shots, members of the team became part of the flock. The birds followed wherever they went - even in a microlight over Edinburgh and London. In Africa, paragliders floated alongside wild vultures, while a model vulture carried a camera inside the flock. In South America, wildliving macaws, that were rescued as babies, still come back to visit their 'foster mother' as he travels along a jungle river. In Africa, a radio-controlled 'drone' silently infiltrates masses of pink flamingos without disturbing a feather, and microlights capture the dramatic moment white storks arrive over Istanbul.

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 baking; cooking in the dry heat of the oven. Raymond loves the beautiful colours and flavours it gives food. But for him baking is for much more than bread and cakes, it is good for meats, cheese and even seafood. That is where he starts this show, with simple, delicious scallops baked in their own shells. Then there is an extraordinary salt baked leg of lamb that makes Raymond very happy and a double dessert treat: first a restaurant masterpiece, an exquisite pistachio souffle with a bitter cocoa sorbet inside, then a crowdpleasing flourless chocolate cake.

David Suchet - The Mystery of Agatha Christie. David Suchet sets out to unravel the mystery surrounding the life and work of Agatha Christie. Since he first played Hercule Poirot on ITV in 1990, the actor has become closely identified with the dapper Belgian detective who first appeared in The Mysterious Affair at Styles, the novel which launched Christie's career as a crime writer in 1920. One of the best-selling novelists of all time, Christie remains popular with millions of fans 37 years after her death. Suchet asks what gave her stories worldwide appeal and why her enduring characters, such as Poirot and Miss Marple, so captured the imagination of her readers.

Southcliffe Channel 4, 21:00

A powerful new fourpart drama featuring a wealth of British talent, including Rory Kinnear, Eddie Marsan, Shirley Henderson and Sean Harris, which tells the story of a fictional English market town devastated by a spate of shootings that take place over a single day. In the opening episode, as dawn breaks in the sleepy market town of Southcliffe, the unmistakable sound of gunshots ring out.

Das Auto: The Germans, Their Cars And Us BBC2, 21.00

Across the world, the badges of Volkswagen, Audi, BMW and Mercedes are seen as something to aspire to. Even in Britain, where memories of the war run deep, we can’t resist the appeal of a German motor. By contrast, the British car industry is a shadow of its former self. So what did we get wrong – and what did the Germans get so right? Dominic Sandbrook traces the story of the German automobile industry from post-war revival through to global success, and explores the role cars have played in changing the global perception of Britain and Germany themselves. He visits the vast Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg where, in the late 1940s, British officer Major Ivan Hirst decided to step up production of a car that would change Germany’s image forever – the Beetle. Major Hirst’s vision of a prosperous, peaceful Germany, pouring its energies into making cars rather than wars, soon became a reality. By contrast, Britain was falling behind. Dominic explores the decline and fall of the British car industry in the 1960s and 1970s, beset by strikes and walkouts. With the help of newly declassified government documents, as well as old car commercials, interviews and archive footage, the programme explains how Germany’s manufacturers exploited the new materialism of the 1980s and looks at how and why the Brits began to fall in love with German cars. By the end of the 20th century, even James Bond was now driving a BMW, instead of his beloved Aston Martin. But now the story has come full circle. As Dominic discovers, our car industry is still alive and kicking, producing millions of cars a year. The irony, though, is that we make those cars for German companies. Even the Mini, that supreme symbol of British wit and ingenuity, is owned by BMW. But, Dominic asks, does it really matter who owns the brands?

Long Live Britain BBC1, 21.00

Julia Bradbury, Dr Phil Hammond and Phil Tufnell host the first of two shows to be shown tonight, raising awareness of three of Britain’s biggest preventable conditions – Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and liver disease - which affect an estimated 11 million people a year. In May this year, the show organised the UK’s biggest ever combined health screening at Rugby League’s Magic Weekend in Manchester. Almost 400 locals and sports fans were screened to see if they were at risk from one of these three ‘silent’ killers. A team of three GPs, 50 NHS volunteer nurses, with the aid of leading charities Diabetes UK, HEART UK – The Cholesterol Charity and the British Liver Trust, helped to give advice about how to reduce the risk of developing these chronic conditions. Some well-known TV personalities were also screened a few weeks ahead of the main event in Manchester. Long Live Britain follows the progress of former Eastender Ricky Grover, singer Jodie Prenger and actress Crissy Rock as they undergo a number of medical tests.

The Brothers Who Bombed Boston. On the 15th of April, in the worst terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11, two homemade bombs exploded at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three people and injuring more than 200 participants and spectators. With interviews with those who knew them, Panorama reporter Hilary Andersson explores how the two suspected bombers - brothers raised and educated in the US became radicalised, and asks if America's war on terror has come home. With the surviving brother due to stand trial later this year, she goes on patrol with New York Police Department's anti-terrorist squad which uses the latest technology to protect New Yorkers from future terrorist attacks. But she finds a backlash amongst many Muslims in America against law enforcement programmes they believe are designed specifically to profile, map and spy on Muslims. Panorama asks: are the authorities spying on the right people?

Make Me a German BBC2, 21:00

Just what makes Germans so successful? They work fewer hours, yet they are more productive and their economy is the most successful in Europe. Even David Cameron says we should strive to be more like them. In a bid to discover their secret, Justin and Bee Rowlatt head to the manufacturing city of Nuremberg with two of their children. Under the tuition of advertising expert PJ, whose company has done detailed research into the typical German, they set out to live, work and socialise the German way. Justin starts work in a pencil factory, Bee learns how the German housewife organises the home and they set about saving a portion of their income.

Stephen Fry's Key to the city ITV1, 21.00

The City of London is more rich and powerful than any other ‘borough’ in the UK, yet is a mere square mile. Stephen Fry lives just a few miles away in London’s West End, but, in some ways The City feels like a foreign country to him. When Stephen was given The Freedom Of The City, he admits he didn’t quite know what it meant. Now, in this one-off documentary for ITV, the actor sets out to explore the square mile of The City, and to use his new status as a freeman to gain access to all areas. One minute Stephen is standing in the heart of the Bank of England, surrounded by banknotes worth billions, the next he’s perched on the roof of Mansion House, surrounded by hives of bees. The programme sees Stephen head below the Thames into the bowels of Tower Bridge where he meets the Bridge Master, who gives him the thrilling task of raising the bridge himself, which he executes like a pro. At the London Metal Exchange – the only trading floor that is not computerised - Stephen witnesses high drama when he sees dealers screaming and shouting at each other as they buy and sell stocks of metal. Stephen says: “It was absolutely incomprehensible to me, but, as theatre, it was one of the most remarkable things I have ever seen.” The programme also sees Stephen meet the City Beadles, who are going to The Guildhall for a silent ceremony to mark the inauguration of the new lord mayor. They also tell Stephen to get a haircut. Stephen says of the ceremony: “It’s an extraordinary, mysterious, 35 minutes of silent ceremony. It’s all done by symbols. At the moment when power passes, you put on the funny hat and the job’s yours.”

You Saw Them Here First - Episode two: ITV1, 20.00 Prepare for another fun-filled romp through the archives as Robert Webb reveals the television debuts of some of Britain’s best-loved actors and actresses, presenters and pop stars in You Saw Them Here First. Before getting their big breaks, many of today’s pop sensations had graced our television screens as young hopefuls trying to make their stamp on the music industry. Years before singing at the 2012 Olympics, Emile Sande performed on Trevor Nelson’s Lowdown using her real name Adele. At just 16, and sporting long curly brown locks rather than her trademark blonde quiff, the singer was a runner up in Trevor’s urban talent search. Other classic clips featuring well-known pop stars include: Aston Merrygold performing as a young Michael Jackson on Stars In Their Eyes; a ten-year-old Cheryl Cole ballroom dancing; Claire from Steps in girl group TSD performing with Mr Motivator; and Jessica Cornish, now better known as Jessie J, trying to prove she’s one of Britain’s Brilliant Prodigies. You Saw Them Here First reveals screen legend Patrick Stewart’s first ever television appearance as a fireman in a 1960s episode of Coronation Street. There’s also a clip of Russell Crowe as a child in Australian soap The Young Doctors, Sir Michael Caine as a medieval solider, along with television debuts from Hollywood greats Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Derek Jacobi, Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt. When it comes to TV firsts, this episode is packed with cringe-worthy debuts. In the video booth, Janet Street Porter is presented with clips she’ll never forget even if she would rather – from being hoisted in the air by muscleman Arnold Schwarzenegger to testing gadgets for picking up dog foul. Broadcasting legend Chris Tarrant comes face to face with his younger self on a local news item where he spoke to a man walking 13 miles with ferrets down his trousers, we see Ant and Dec’s presenting debut and Rob Brydon hosting a 1980s Welsh game show.

Battling for the MasterChef crown are actor and comedian John Thomson, triple jumper Phillips Idowu, actress Denise Black and actor and musician Ade Edmondson. The first challenge for the four hopefuls is a mystery box test, the test of imagination and creativity in which the celebrities are presented with a range of ingredients. Here they come face-to-face with a crocodile - with nerves running high and just 50 minutes to cook their dish, the celebrities must think on their feet and create something snappy to impress the judges.

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 episode concentrates on Victoria's relationship with her daughters. It looks at how, after Albert's death, Victoria clung to and bullied them and arranged their marriages.

This new two-part show concludes with another fun-filled romp through the archives as Robert Webb introduces the television debuts of some of the UK's best-loved actors, presenters and pop stars. In 2003 a teenager by the name of Jessie J was acclaimed as one of Britain's Brilliant Prodigies, in 1993 a young Amanda Holden was appearing in a Victorian crime drama, and in 1994 19-year-olds Ant and Dec got their first opportunity at presenting. One character who keeps cropping up across the years is Simon Cowell, who it seemed would try his hand at almost anything - even dressing up as a dog. Chris Tarrant, Janet Street-Porter and Kate Garraway are among the celebrities brave enough to venture into the video vault and see their fresh - and much younger - selves first-hand. Benidorm's Sherrie Hewson surprises her co-star Jake Canuso with some rather revealing clips from his performing past.

The Men Who Made Us Thin BBC2, 21.00 As obesity escalates, the diet business is booming. Jacques Peretti investigates the connections between obesity and weight loss, and confronts some of the men making a fortune from our desire to become thin. In the first of this four-part series, Jacques examines the scientific reasons why so many diets fail long-term and why - in spite of this failure - we go back to them again and again. Travelling to the US and speaking to industry insiders, he discovers some of the secrets of the industry. The knowledge that dieting is problematic was realised by scientists back in the 1940s and 1950s. Jacques asks whether this research influenced the modern diet industry, which often relies on returning customers who blame themselves for failure when the diet doesn’t deliver a long-term solution. Jacques speaks to a former director of Weight Watchers, who admits that customer failure was a significant factor in the company’s profits: people have to keep coming back. In addition, Peretti meets other industry leaders, including Slimfast billionaire Danny Abrahams and Pierre Dukan, of the Dukan diet, to question them about the strategy behind the fortunes they’ve made

Fraud Squad ITV1, 21.00 Fraud Squad enters the hidden world of international money launderers who clean millions of pounds stolen from British victims of fraud. With exclusive access to the Economic Crime Department of the City of London Police, Fraud Squad reveals how organised crime is targeting our hard earned life savings and laundering the stolen millions through front companies, offshore accounts and gold. It includes interviews with victims whose lives have been devastated after being conned out of huge sums in life savings, as well as footage of raids and arrests as the authorities catch up with major players who have got rich ripping them off. Britain’s major money launderers, as Detective Superintendent David Clark explains, “Have the victims’ money in their possession, they’re controlling it, they’re moving it, they’re cleaning it and effectively they have the victims’ blood on their hands from the minute the money’s paid to the minute it is spent in the luxurious lifestyles that these people tend to keep.” Fraud Squad trails detectives to Heathrow airport where a high value target, Ian MacDonald, who has laundered over £18 million of British victims’ money, is hauled off an aeroplane. His arrest brings an unexpected prize. Accompanying him is one of the world’s most wanted fraudsters, 44-year-old David Downes. Downes is the mastermind behind a number of international investment frauds, ruthlessly targeting over 2,000 British victims by pressurising them to buy worthless carbon credits and fake shares in eco-friendly companies. Detective Inspector James Clancey states: “Downes is one of the significant individuals in Europe for this kind of criminality. He’s been involved in this for a number of years and MacDonald seems to be his money laundering organisation attached to the side of the criminality.” Detective Constable Claire Armson-Smith reveals to Fraud Squad the devastation Downes and McDonald caused across the UK. “A number of victims have died. I’ve had elderly vulnerable victims with dementia having to go into homes. I’ve had victims saying they feel suicidal because of their losses. It’s just destroying people’s lives.” 73-year-old retired nurse and midwife, Nelzine Green, lost £64,000, most of her life savings, to the fraud.

Recent years have seen a step-change in Britain's drug culture. Out go the 'old' illegal drugs - cocaine, heroin, speed - swept to one side by a younger generation who can get their hits not only more cheaply but also legally. There is a burgeoning market for drugs specially designed by clandestine chemists to get around Britain's drug laws. The new drugs are legal to buy because they're sold as research chemicals and labelled 'not for human consumption'. This hard-hitting observational documentary - directed by triple BAFTA-award winner Dan Reed - takes a trip into the murky world of legal drugs, where underground chemists invent new drugs faster than the government can legislate against them.

IT’S ALL CHANGE! MANY artistes have come and gone from this wonderful Island, while some have decided to make Tenerife their permanent home. For those who have spent some time here working on the circuit, only they will know what it is like to dedicate every night to an entertainment scene, to work hard and play hard and to live among the benefits that Island life gives. Leaving Tenerife is like a bungee jump: sooner or later, it will pull you back. The only question is, how long is your bungee? There are still a lot of changes happening on the circuit -changes that would normally occur at the beginning of the summer and not halfway through. Bars are being bought and sold, cabaret artistes are receiving that phone call, “We’re having a change around”, and existing showbars are trying out new formats of entertainment. Sometimes, this has been forced on them because an act is not cutting it any more, or an act or musician has left.

This week The Vagabonds, resident band in the Bulls Head on Parque de la Paz, bade farewell to Christian Taylor. He has been in Tenerife for four years and, because of some excellent work opportunities in the UK, Chris has decided to return. His working life started here with The Dynamo’s in Harleys Bar before joining the Vagabonds, singing lead vocals and playing bass guitar and acoustic guitar. The workload for all the musicians in this band is demanding, to say the least. All the guys work seven nights a week, and Christian is no exception. It is no easy task to sing rock songs for three hours every night. Christian has been dubbed Captain Rock and fulfils all your expectations of what you would

expect from the front man of a rock band. He has a great image and has been likened to Bon Jovi and Bryan Adams. Whenever I have watched the Vagabonds, I’ve always admired the manner in which Christian is able to talk to the audience and make them feel like he’s their best friend. And this obviously factors high in the reasons why the Bulls Head is full every night. On his return to the UK, Christian has already secured work on a pilot TV show for children, providing the voices for the characters and vocal for the songs in the show. He says a return to Tenerife could happen in the future, but for now he will be spending time with family and concentrating on other lines of work. The Vagabonds had known for some time that Christian was leaving, and they had been looking for a suitable replacement. There had been a lot of interest in the position, with both male and female singers being tried out for the job. The work load is high, so it was imperative that they got the right person. Shiel Campbell has worked in bands back in Scotland and in Cyprus and has the necessary experience to take on the role, which is why

he is now the lead singer and frontman of The Vagabonds. He started last Monday and, like the trooper he is, had no break between leaving his last job and starting at the Bulls Head. Shiel is an experienced entertainer and can cover a multitude of songs across all genres. I spoke with Shiel on Wednesday to ask how things are going - and he loves it! Having said that, the recent calima has taken its toll on many of the Island’s vocalists, and Shiel is no exception, but as the old saying goes, “The show must go on”. This is probably one of the toughest gigs for a singer on the Island. I am sure Shiel Campbell will do very well with the boys down there, and Canarian Weekly would like to wish him, Christian, The Vagabonds and the Bulls Head all the best for the future. Obviously, with Shiel leaving a residency and giving up his gigs on the circuit, this has left some positions open for work. Leonardo’s are now looking for a young, vibrant and versatile singer to work alongside Scott Henderson in the resident duo ReLoaded. If you are interested and feel you have what it takes, then contact Leonardo’s manager Steve at the venue for further information.

Out and about OVER the last few months I have really enjoyed writing for this page. I’ve had the opportunity to review some top artistes, and there are so many more. I will be in the Euro Bar in Silencio tonight (Friday) to watch Keith George as Mandy Gap. Keith’s name keeps popping up wherever I go, so I’m going to see what all the fuss is about. After all the good things I’ve heard already I feel sure I will be in for a good night. Incidentally, if you are an artiste with a new act - or an existing one - and you would like me to review your show, please email me at jamiedrewdj@gmail. com - I would be more than happy to see you performing.

Just our cup of TEA! IT’S not long now before the build-up to the TEA Awards starts. The teasers have already began airing on Oasis Fm and it won’t be long before Facebook explodes with nomination requests. I wonder what the live category will be this year? It has been four years since the Best Male Vocalist category has been live, so could it be the guys this year? I think we’ll probably have to wait and see. Last year’s event was fantastic. I will never forget the image of the band Kick entering the stage in green mankinis and cowboy boots to perform their set. This year has a few surprises, which I am certain will please everyone who attends. The TEAs are coming! Visit www.teaawards.com for more information.

AN array of celebrity DJs has poured through Tramps so far this summer, and we have seen the usual suspects. Tim Westwood and Judge Jules have filled the main arena, and Vernon Kay has caused a frenzy, with girls flocking to see him. It was great to meet these guys and watch them work. I don’t know how I did it, but I managed to blag my way into the private VIP area of Vernon Kay, behind the DJ booth, and I watched his whole set, which was an absolute pleasure. Once the celebrity DJs finished their two-hour sets, the resident DJs took over. The mighty Scot Page and the awesome Mat Howes had the task of following the celebrities. But as far as the dance floor was concerned, you couldn’t tell. Matt and Scot, master DJs in their own right, kept the place jumping until 6am. Tramps not only has the main arena, but two other rooms to enjoy, too, with DJ Snoopy in Notorious and Woody in Coco Bongo’s. These two rooms within Tramps offer an alternative style to the main arena, DJ Snoopy dropping some classic R & B and DJ Woody covering all styles - and offering up a little karaoke in the mix as well. Woody, it has been said, is probably the most versatile DJ in Tramps and, no matter who is in front of him and whatever age group, he never fails to entertain. He’s technically brilliant and knows the equipment like the back of his hand, and Woody is the top choice among the workers at Tramps. There’s a party every night in Tramps, and, if you would like a private party for a special occasion, manager Olly would like to hear from you. He and his team can cater for your every need and make your evening special at The King Of Clubs.

By Alex Ashton MANY of you may have heard of American fugitive Edward Snowden, the National Security Agency whistle-blower. He has released new documents detailing another of the NSA’s methods to keep tabs on what people do online. It is called “xkeyscore”, and is said to be the Agency’s “widest reaching” eavesdropping tool. Leaked top-secret documents claim that it tracks and allows agents to search through the emails, online chats, web visits and various searches conducted by millions of internet users. The email addresses and phone numbers used and searched for by xkeyscore can be skimmed from people’s address books or received emails - even their signatures. What’s more, xkeyscore doesn’t just track the fact that emails have been sent and received. It also allows agents to search and read email body text: the “To”, “from”, “Cc” and “Bcc” fields to which the email has been sent. Because of the vast amounts of data being assembled by the tool and stored in a database, actual content that xkeyscore collects is stored for three to five days, while metadata is stored for roughly 30. Should you be afraid of the NSA’s web monitoring? Basically, the answer in the shortterm is YES. Top officials have admitted to capturing more than 20 terabytes of data per day - a vast amount - and then justifying using it with a simple drop-down box to label the reasoning as to why they need this. For example, a keyword like “suspected terrorist” just because you may have put the words “bomb” and “airport” within your email. American documents claim that 300 “terrorists” have been caught using data extracted from XKeyscore. However, on some slides detailing why

NSA tracks everything you do on the internet

the NSA would be “interested in web traffic”, it is explained that this is “because nearly everything a typical user does on the Internet uses HTTP”. A typical user? That’s you! And me! And everyone you know! Perhaps the modern pessimistic web-users of today are not too surprised that the NSA has this ability - but the legality of how it’s being used causes the main worry for most of us. Just as with Prism (another US surveillance programme), the NSA needs a warrant to delve into a US citizen’s web activity, but foreign targets are fair game. If a foreign target (me and you) is in contact with, or has a US citizen in an address book or contacts list, then the NSA will know about us, too. In a statement to the Guardian newspaper, the NSA said: *NSA’s activities are focused and specifically deployed against - and only against - legitimate foreign intelligence targets in response to requirements that our leaders need for information necessary to protect our nation and its interests. *Access to XKeyscore, as well as all of NSA’s analytic tools, is limited to only those personnel who require access for their assigned tasks.

*In addition, there are multiple technical, manual and supervisory checks and balances within the system to prevent deliberate misuse from occurring. *Every search by an NSA analyst is fully auditable, to ensure that they are proper and within the law. *These types of programmes allow us to collect the information that enables us to perform our missions successfully: to defend the nation and to protect US and allied troops abroad. So basically, after all the usual political rhetoric, we don’t know who is using this tool, where its information is stored and the details of the law which permits them to use it against anybody they see fit and willing. I guess one thing we can take comfort in is the fact that we are all in the same boat, including me! Happy browsing!

Ofcom’s Communications Market Report 2013 reveals that people are still coming together to watch TV in the living room – 91% of UK adults view TV on the main set each week, up from 88% in 2002. However, an increasing array of digital media are now vying for their attention. People are streaming videos, firing off instant messages and updating their social media status – all while watching more TV than before. These activities are mostly carried out using smartphones, with over half of adults (51%) now owning these devices, almost double the proportion two years ago (27%). At the same time, tablet ownership has more than doubled in the past year, rising from 11% of homes to 24%. The average household now owns more than three types of internet enabled device, with one in five owning six or more. Slideshow of how the living room is being transformed into a digital media hub The digital living room Over half (53%) of UK adults are now media multi-tasking while watching TV on a weekly basis. Watching other content on a different device is one of these activities. A quarter (25%) are regularly ‘media meshing’ – doing something else but related to what

they’re watching on TV. Examples of media meshing include talking on the phone (16%) or texting (17%) about what they’re watching, using social networks (11%) or ‘apps’ to communicate directly with programmes (3%). Younger people are most likely to use other media while watching TV (74%) with 44% media meshing. The impact of media meshing was seen during the 2013 Wimbledon Men’s tennis final, with 1.1 million people worldwide tweeting 2.6 million times using hashtags associated with the tennis final. Of these tweets, around 80% came from mobile devices 3. The other major social phenomenon driven by digital devices is ‘media stacking’. Half (49%) of people use their smartphones and tablets for completely unrelated activities while watching TV every week – such as surfing the net (36%), social networking (22%) or online shopping (16%). Women are significantly more likely to media multi-task weekly (56% compared to 51% of men), as are those with children at home (66%). Television fights back While the average household owns at least three types of internet-enabled device, the TV set in the living room retains its importance. People are increasingly reverting to having just one TV in their household – 41% of households in 2012 compared with 35% in 2002. In the first quarter of 2013, half (52%)

of 5-15 year olds had a TV in their bedroom. This compares to seven in ten (69%) in 2007. And the proportion of UK adults viewing via the main TV set has increased from 88% in 2002 to 91% in 2012. Live TV accounted for 90% of all viewing in 2012, with the average viewer watching just over four hours of TV a day – 15 minutes more than in 2008. Viewers are also enjoying bigger screens in the living room. ‘Jumbo’ TV sets (43”+) accounted for 15.8% of sales in the first quarter 2013, a 4.3 percentage point increase on 2012. Tablets are also supporting the continued popularity of watching TV live, with more than half (57%) of tablet audiovisual content viewers watching live TV at least weekly via this device. James Thickett, Ofcom’s Director of Research, said: “Our research shows that increasingly families are gathering in the living room to watch TV just as they were in the 1950s – but now delivered on bigger, wider and more sophisticated sets. Unlike the 1950s family, however, they are also doing their own thing. They are tweeting about a TV show, surfing the net or watching different content altogether on a tablet. “Just a few years ago, we would be talking about last night’s TV at work or at school. Now, we’re having those conversations live while watching TV – using social media, text and instant messaging.”

SOFTEN UP!

By Carl from Robot

WILL you tell them or shall I? You need a fringe because there is only so much forehead a woman should show.

And the two women featured are prime examples. It doesn’t matter what your age because if you have a high forehead, then you will look much softer in the face with some sort of fringe. Having short or long hair makes no difference - showing this amount of forehead is way too harsh. Yet there are so many options to choose from that I don’t see why their stylists haven’t

Page 40

had a little word, You don’t have to cover up totally, but just bring some hair forward to soften the look and shave off a few years. Dragging your hair back not only looks severe but gives your profile a hardness, which can seem quite manly. If you have a small forehead, then you can get away with it. But women with larger ones need to look for a different styling option to flatter them. Larger fronts tend to suit fuller fringes, or side-sweeping ones. That’s because fuller fringes bring attention to your eyes and really “open” your face out. Side-fringes are great to cover up, and are also a good length to pin back when needed. But please don’t go for the middle-parting look as this just makes that empty space seem even wider. However you choose

to flatter your forehead, make sure you check out all the styling options first, and do consult your stylist as to which one will work best for you. Don’t plunge in headfirst for one you have seen on someone else - this might not be the one for you. Your stylist can give you the effect without cutting by “draping” the hair over your face to give you an idea before you go ahead. Remember, choose the wrong one and it’s going to take years to grow out.

The dangers of mobile phones MOBILE phones can cause cancer and using one for just 17 minutes a day increases the risk dramatically.

Chatting for as little as eight hours a month causes higher oxidative stress, which is a harmful process that damages all aspects of a human cell, including DNA, and is a major risk-factor for cancer, according to new research. Mobiles are currently classed as “potentially carcinogenic to humans” by the International Agency for Research on Cancer. Scientists have long been concerned about the possible harmful effects of regular mobile phone use. But no studies have produced clear results. These new figures have come about as a result of, a new analysis of mobile users’ saliva. Researchers at Israel’s Tel Aviv University hypothesised that saliva content could reveal whether there was a connection to developing cancer because a mobile phone is placed close to the saliva gland when in use. They examined saliva content of 20 heavy phone users, who spoke on their phones for at least eight hours a month - although most used them for 30 to 40 hours a month. Their saliva content was compared with deaf patients, who either do not use a mobile phone,

or employ them for non-verbal activity like sending texts. Despite this research, brain-tumour rates have remained unchanged for years Results showed that the heavy mobile phone users had significantly greater saliva oxidative stress. Lead author Dr Yaniv Hamzany said: “This suggests that there is considerable oxidative stress on the tissue and glands, which are close to the cell phone when in use. “The damage caused by oxidative stress is linked to cellular and genetic mutations, which cause the development of tumours.” The researchers say the results reflect longstanding concerns about the impact of mobile phone use. The study, published in the journal Antioxidants and Redox Signalling, does not uncover a conclusive “cause and effect” relationship between mobile phones and cancer. But it does add to growing evidence that, in the long term, phones may be harmful.

One potential avenue of future research would be to analyse a person’s saliva before exposure to a mobile phone, and then again after several intense minutes of exposure. The researchers say this will allow them to see if there is an immediate response – such as a rise in molecules which indicate oxidative stress. Henry Scowcroft, Science Information Manager at Cancer Research UK, said: “Brain tumour rates have been more or less unchanged for decades. “And this, coupled with the results of large studies, suggests that mobile phones do not increase the risk of developing them. “This is a very small study looking at chemical differences in the saliva between just 20 mobile phone users and a similar group of nonusers. “So it is impossible to draw firm conclusions and, when set against the overwhelming body of evidence from larger studies, does not alter the conclusion that mobile phones are unlikely to increase the risk of brain tumours or other cancers.” A spokesman for the Mobile Operators Association, said: “The researchers of this study admit that the controls for this experiment, who were deaf, could significantly affect the results because of their physiological differences with hearing subjects.” He added: “Research into the possible health effects of mobile phones has been going on for two decades. To date, no adverse health effects have been established.”

By Val Sainsbury MORE than one billion prescriptions are being written by Britain’s doctors every year.

Record numbers of patients taking painkillers, sleeping pills, anti-depressants and medication for heart disease and diabetes have helped the figure soar by two-thirds in a decade. More than 2.7 million prescriptions are being written out each day, which is the equivalent of more than 1,900 every minute, according to

prescription numbers are soaring!

NHS data. Just over a decade ago, 617 million prescriptions a year were being written. For every person in England, an average of 18.7 prescription items were dispensed in 2012, compared with 17.1 in 2009 and 12.4 in 2002. The most costly condition was diabetes, which accounted for £768 million last year - up by £16.2m on 2011. There are concerns that the rise has, in part, been fuelled by GPs handing

out drugs such as painkillers and sleeping pills too readily, with many patients quickly becoming addicted. Meanwhile, campaigners blamed the increase in anti-depressants on rising levels of stress, possibly because of the economic woes. The numbers of prescriptions for the drugs, including Prozac and Seroxat, jumped 7.5% last year, up from 47 million to 50 million. The most commonlytaken drugs are statins

(to lower cholesterol), aspirin, paracetamol, indigestion relief, high blood pressure treatments and medication for thyroid problems, which affect metabolism. The most expensive condition to treat is diabetes, which accounted for £768m last year, up 2.2% on 2011. Overall, the cost of prescriptions to the NHS last year was

£8.5bn, which was similar to the total cost in 2009. Yet it was £6.8bn in 2002. For every person in England, an average of 18.7 prescription items were dispensed, compared with 17.1 in 2009 and 12.4 in 2002. The NHS’s Health and

Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC), which provided the figures, said the rise was partly driven by the increasing population and higher numbers of elderly, who were more likely to fall ill. But although the numbers of prescriptions is rising, the actual cost has remained the same. That’s because the price of many drugs has fallen. The data shows nine out of 10 prescription items were dispensed free of charge, with about 60% going to people aged 60 and over. Dr Andrew McCulloch, of the Mental Health Foundation, said: “This further rise in anti-depressant prescribing is very worrying, given massive Government investment in psychotherapy and the development of other alternative treatments for depression.”

Super-strength broccoli all set to beat chronic diseases

IT is a well-known fact that broccoli contains more nutritional benefits than any other vegetable. Broccoli’s noteworthy nutrients include vitamin C, vitamin A (mostly as beta-carotene), folic acid, calcium, and fibre. In fact, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts and kale are all members of the cruciferous (cabbage), family, which contain phytochemicals - non-nutritive plant chemicals which have protective or diseasepreventing properties. That is why mums, certainly in days gone by, always insisted we eat our greens and why, nowadays, health experts recommend the “five-a-day” portions of fruit and veg. Now, a special, “super” broccoli is said to have all the the right properties necessary to help fight chronic diseases, from Type 2 diabetes to dodgy hearts. The strengthened broccoli, developed by British scientists at the Institute of Food Research in Norwich in 2010, reportedly retunes your metabolism to combat the effects of ageing. The vegetable, sold under the brand name Beneforte,

contains boosted levels of a plant compound believed to protect against heart disease and cancer. Scientists who tested it on volunteers saw metabolic changes. Tiny energy generators in cells called mitochondria, which become less efficient with age, were given a new lease of life. Eating the broccoli helped reverse various malfunctions that contribute to problems such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease and some forms of cancer. Beneforte was created using conventional “breeding” techniques, by crossing conventional broccoli with a wild Italian variety which has naturally high levels of glucoraphanin, which breaks down the body’s fat. It contains two to three times more of the compound than ordinary broccoli, and much higher levels than other “cruciferous” vegetables such as Brussels sprouts, kale and cauliflower. The findings underlined the health benefits of eating cruciferous vegetables in general, although Beneforte showed the most striking effect, said the team led by Professor Richard

2nd August - 8th August 2013

Mithen, from the Institute of Food Research. Writing in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the researchers conclude: “A diet rich in cruciferous vegetables effectively retunes our metabolism. “In this manner, cruciferous vegetables may be able to reduce the risk of many chronic diseases associated with ageing.” The scientists recruited 48 volunteers, who were split into three groups and for three months ate 400 grams a week of Beneforte, standard broccoli, or peas. Blood tests showed clear signs of improved metabolism in the high-glucoraphanin Beneforte group. In particular, two biochemical processes vital to mitochondrial function were “rebalanced”. People in the Beneforte group also had reduced levels of compounds linked to inflammation in their blood. Catherine Collins, principal dietician at St George’s Hospital, London, gave weight to the findings, saying: “It adds to the evidence that cruciferous vegetables benefit health and, possibly, reduce the risk of chronic conditions.”

Eden new sparkle! Renowned for both its ongoing innovation and support of all things local, the Eden Project has joined forces with neighbouring, award-winning Cornish winery Knightor to create their first sparkling wine.

Eden Brut, a stunning and immensely drinkable non-vintage sparkling wine, has been lovingly crafted from vine to wine by winemaker James Thomas at Knightor, near St Austell Bay. Commenting on behalf of the Eden Pro-

Page 42

ject about this joint initiative, Andrew Holden, Procurement Director, says: “We’ve had a lot of demand for our own brand English sparkling wine for quite some time. As we’re positioned just a few miles away from Knightor it made absolute sense to work with them to create our very own Eden Brut.” Andrew continues: “We’re delighted with the results. It’s only just gone on to our shelves and into our online shop and is already proving to be very popular.” Knightor has also helped plant and prune vines growing in the Eden Project’s Biomes. On providing the wine for Eden Brut, proprietor of Knightor, Adrian Derx, says: “The Eden

Project and our philosophy are very similar. Like Eden, here at Knightor we are committed to reducing our environmental impact, operating sustainably and supporting other local Cornish businesses.” Solar voltaic panels and the sourcing of produce for the restaurant from local suppliers are examples of Knightor’s

responsible approach to minimizing their impact on the environment and supporting the Cornish economy. The labels for the Eden Brut were printed and hand embossed at Nationwide Print, based a few miles away in Holmbush. English wines continue to grow in their popularity with sparkling wines

at the forefront of this. Over 50% of wines produced here in England are sparkling (source: vine growers yearbook) and demand is still outstripping supply. The wine’s fruity flavour emanates from Seyval Blanc, Reichensteiner, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir grapes. These were handpicked from Knightor’s two vineyards situated on the South coast of Cornwall at Portscatho in the Roseland and Seaton near Looe as well as other English vineyards. After picking, the grapes were gently whole bunch pressed and fermented in small batches in Knightor’s on-site winery prior to blending. Secondary fermentation and age-

ing in the bottle resulted in the creation of this immensely enjoyable, fresh English sparkling wine. Eden Brut is about pure fun and enjoyment. On the nose it is elegant, with light floral aromas, peach and apple like fruit, and subtle lees notes. Despite the dosage being at the Brut level, it also has plenty of fruit flavour which along with its vibrant and fresh mousse makes for a fuller more jovial style. Both the Eden Project and Knightor are located near St Austell Bay in Cornwall, just off the A30.

Economy the key! With the economic climate remaining uncertain and Brits continuing to be cautious in their spending, economy lines and products featuring value-related claims have never been in greater demand.

Indeed, highlighting just how important economy products have become in the nation’s shopping basket, new research from Mintel reveals that the number of economy food and drink products launched in the UK has outstripped the number of premium launches for the first time in 2012. New product launches featuring economy claims accounted for 9% of total new food and drink launches in 2012 in the UK, compared to 7% of launches featuring

premium claims. In contrast, back in 2008, premium accounted for 9% of total food and drink launches compared to 2% of economy. This surge in economy lines makes the UK the leading country in terms of food and drink new product launches with economy claims globally, accounting for 21% of global food and drink economy introductions in 2012. What is more, in 2012 the UK even exceeded the US, which accounted for 20% of global econ-

omy launches in 2012. Looking at other markets worldwide, Japan ranked third with a 15% share of global economy NPD activity, followed by France, Australia, Spain and Italy (4% respectively). David Jago, Director of Innovation and Insight at Mintel, said: “The UK economy has struggled to see market recovery and consumer disposable income has remained under pressure. This has given buoyancy to the trend for food and drink

brands and grocers to push their value credentials to the foreground. Investment in NPD across economy lines has reflected this, increasing steadily since 2010, outstripping the number of new product launches featuring premium claims. Much of the activity in the economy segment in 2012 was fuelled by UK supermarkets improving their value-for-money ranges in response to consumer challenges dictated by the ongoing economic turmoil.”

“The largest share of products with economy claims is driven primarily by significant private label investment in essential economy product ranges. Meanwhile, branded manufacturers in the US and Europe have used bulk value positioning, increasing pack sizes to deliver lower average pricing per unit or pound, but higher overall package costs. However, this value pack strategy ignores some basic economics of poorer consumers, suggesting that alternative strategies may be successful. As budgets grow ever tighter, consumers are recalibrating their lifestyles and making new product choices, but they carry their middle and upper-class tastes and experiences with them. Economy product innovation, packaging and marketing needs to remain mindful that downsliding consumers don’t want to be made to feel poorer.” David

adds. Indeed, economic challenges are continuing to reshape consumer lifestyles and expectations within and outside the UK. And it seems bargain hunting has become ingrained amongst Britain’s savvy shoppers, with more than seven in ten (72%) consumers saying they like the ‘thrill’ of getting a bargain. The figure peaks among women (77% female consumers vs 66% men) and it is also strong amongst the highest earners (75% of those earning £50,000 or over, vs 70% of those under £9,500 and 78% £9,500-15,499). Today, promotional activity has become essential to more than half (55%) of British consumers, who only buy certain products or brands when on promotion. And some four in ten (39%) say that promotions allow them to buy foods that they would not be able to afford otherwise.

Award winning wines

EL Tágara dry white wine, made by ​​ Bodegas Insulares Tenerife, has been awarded the 2013 Los Premios Zarcillo prize in a contest of the same name.

Winemakers International Union, the contest has become the most important national contest of Spanish wines and fifth internationally in terms of number of samples. Two other wines made by ​​ Bodegas Insulares Tenerife received awards last week in the Vinos Agrocanarias event , El Ancon aromatic Malvasia and red oak which were awarded gold and silver medal, respectively.

The only model on sale now is the Fiat Panda 4×4, but not for long! Suzuki have come up with an attractive alternative, applying their vast

experience of building tough, utilitarian, offroad vehicles to the diminutive Swift. The Swift is already acknowledged to be an excellent supermini, combining good looks, value for money and a practical interior with an excellent ride/handling balance. Thankfully, the addition of the fourwheel drive system (which weighs just

67kg) hasn’t dented any of this appeal. It looks pretty much the same, for a start, with sharp lines and a ‘floating’ roof, albeit with a slightly higher ride-height to enhance its off-road credentials. The new 4×4 also incorporates styling upgrades from the Swift’s mid-life facelift for the Sport and nonSport models, which means a slightly re-

designed grille and LED daytime running lights on top-of-the-range SZ4 models. These versions also come with chunky SUVtype styling additions such as front and rear skid-plates, black plastic wheel-arch mouldings and black sideskirts.

board and good levels of standard equipment. Admittedly, some of the plastics are nowhere near premium quality, but in a car costing from just £14,000, that shouldn’t be too much of a concern. The 4×4 is available only in mid-range SZ3 and top SZ4 trim levels, and all come with ABS, 16-inch alloys, several airbags and cruisecontrol as well as USB connectivity. However, the SZ4 models add a fullyadjustable steering wheel, tinted rear glass and keyless entry and start. On the road, the 4×4 feels exactly the same as the regular twowheel-drive hatchback, and the ride is good for such a small car. It manages that difficult balancing act of providing a cosseting drive and good body control. The steering is fast and accurate, if a little over-light, and the car grips keenly through the corners. The five-speed gearbox is a delight to use as well, flicking sweetly through the

ratios, with an accurate and positive action. The Swift 4×4 does everything that you’d expect a Suzuki Swift to do - and more - and for just £1,200 above the cost of the two-wheeldrive variant, it makes for a convincing prospect for rural customers who need a small car. All 4x4 Swift versions have five doors and use the modest but sweetspinning 1.2-litre, VVT four-pot petrol engine to produce 93bhp and 87lb ft, dispatched through a five-speed manual transmission. There’s little between the Panda 4x4 TwinAir and Swift 4x4 SZ3 in price, performance, economy and spec. The Fiat looks more rugged outside and more interesting inside, and it’s roomier with the rear seats folded. But the Suzuki is more capable on-road, potentially more reliable, and its rear seats split as standard. It’s a close contest, and perhaps, a question of what model catches your eye more. Or which manufacturer you prefer.

You can’t go wrong with this VW all-rounder VOLKSWAGEN’S revamped Tiguan compact SUV, available in the UK next month, stands out as one of the more talented allrounders.

It has been criticised for its “lightweight”, Golf-derived underpinnings, but actually, the Tiguan’s civilised and efficient Golf-family engines and relatively modest dimensions is what makes it so uncompromised. Few others in the class combine the Tiguan’s car-like performance, handling, ride, refinement and efficiency, after all. And even fewer come with such a flexible, well-equipped and well-

appointed cabin, with decent capability as a tow car or occasional off-road tool - or with a badge as desirable

2nd August - 8th August 2013

as that of the VW! The new Tiguan, costing from £21,250-£31,320, gets a Touareg-inspired face and a new array of

petrol engines. Economy and CO2 gains have been made across the whole range, and there’s also a new more

off-road-oriented Escape model, with more outright mud-plugging capacity. Performance is well up to class standards, making the Tiguan easy to drive and feel quite fleet of foot on the road. It steers and handles tidily indeed, with strong grip, quick responses, well-contained body roll and little under-steer. Although the Tiguan still isn’t as accommodating as some other makes for the money, it’s as practical as a Toyota RAV4 in most meaningful measurements, and a good deal more so than a Ford Kuga or BMW X1. That’s thanks to rear seats that slide and recline, as well as folding flat, and headroom up

front, which compares with most SUVs. Material quality and fit-and-finish inside the cabin are both consistently good, and standard equipment includes dual-zone climate-control, a DAB radio, tyrepressure monitors and self-steering park assist. It probably seems somewhat middle-ofthe-road compared with some compact SUVs, but the Tiguan would make a growing family’s perfect first-time 4x4. It has 80% of the capabilities of any SUV, but doesn’t come with drawbacks like poor fuel economy, cumbersome handling or average refinement. Put simply, it’s a car that still drives like a car - and yet it is also all the 4x4 you’re ever likely to need.

Adi’s crystal ball sees City back at the helm

DOMESTIC football is back this weekend, although Premier League fans will have to wait another fortnight. The start of the new campaign sees the return of Soccer FM to Oasis Fm, and Adi Benson returns as host. Adi took up the reins earlier in the year and has done a fine job. We asked him to fill in a few blanks and also give us his thoughts on the new season:

Star sign: Libra Marital status: Married What makes you smile: Waking up in the morning What makes you unhappy: Liverpool losing! Bad habits: Drinking to much Favourites Sports: Football, Golf Movie type: Comedy Film: Top Gun Your idol: Kenny Dalglish What made you become a sports commentator and presenter? Well, I have known Chris, the boss at Oasis Fm, for many years now and have always asked him to put me on air. He eventually buckled and when the co-commentator’s position for the CD Tenerife games became available, he gave me a chance! Who was your biggest influence? Difficult question to answer this one, as this was my first job as a presenter, the only person around was Roscoe, and I’m not sure I want to inflate his ego any more! What do you love about the job? Talking football, I have been a fan for over 30 years and I will watch any game in any league. So being able to commentate and host

Holiday: USA Place: New York Food: Roast dinner Soft drink: Pepsi Alcohol: Heineken Car: Ford Capri Colour: Red Clothes brand: Superdry Shop: London Look Band: Rolling Stones Author: David Baldacci Animal: Fish Thing: iPad Saying: “Mine’s a Heineken” a football show is just perfect. What do you hate? Liverpool and CD Tenerife losing! What was your best broadcasting experience and why? This year’s first-leg playoff between CD Tenerife and L’Hospitalet. The atmosphere that day was electric and Tenerife got the job done at home. And although the second leg was a little nervy, promotion was gained. And your worst? Has to be my first season commentating, when CD Tenerife were relegated from the second division. It was a long, miserable season. How do you see the Premier League season going? Who will win the League? It is an interesting season this year, and it will be strange without Sir Alex

and his mind games. You also have the top three sides changing managers. Two already have Premier League experience, so you would think they will be okay. But David Moyes has stepped into some big shoes at Man Utd, and there is a danger he could be caught like a rabbit in the headlights. Jose Mourinho at Chelsea knows what it is all about, but Manuel Pelligrini at Man City is in for a baptism of fire. The City fans loved Bobby Mancini and unless they have a good start, Pelligrini will be under pressure. Throw in the new boys and last season’s midtable teams, who will be looking to do better this year, and it has the makings of one of the most exciting seasons the Premier League has seen! As for the eventual winners … Man City! And who will go down? It is going to be a struggle for the new clubs, specifically two of them who don’t have big transfer budgets, so I have gone with Hull and Crystal Palace to go straight back down. And Norwich, despite making a couple of decent signings, could join them, I think. They struggled in the second half of last season and need to start well. Surprise team? Sunderland, I think. With Paulo di Canio in charge, it promises to be an entertaining season from them. He has more or less changed the whole team and bought in a few good players. I think they will be mixing it up this year in the top half of the table. The Championship starts this weekend, so who will be the main contenders? Well, I have tipped Nottingham Forest to go up this year, as well as Reading bouncing back and Blackpool joining them. Forest

were close to the playoffs last year and were pipped to a spot on the last day of the season. They can push on this year and I can see them doing well. Reading have the talent to go straight back up, and Blackpool have so far kept hold of their better players and I feel they will go up via the play-offs. And the strugglers? I think Yeovil will be out of their depth in this division and, although the league looks strong, I think Charlton, Blackburn and Bournemouth will be spending time at the wrong end of the league. How do you see League 1 & 2? The lower down you go, the closer the leagues seem to get. Relegation and promotion places last year went right down to the final day, so I expect the same again. I expect Sheffield Utd and Brentford to be strong in League 1, and Peterborough and Walsall to struggle. In League 2, watch out for Scunthorpe and Northampton, who went close in the playoffs last season. And I can see Burton and Exeter spending the season near the bottom. What can we expect from the European Leagues?

I am not sure you will see much change at the top of these leagues and, as usual, it comes down to money. In France, PSG will take some stopping from two titles in a row and Bayern Munich will dominate the Bundesliga again. And in Spain, it has to be Real Madrid or Barcelona, although I think Barca are a team in transition, so Madrid may edge it this year. In Italy, Juventus are looking for three titles in a row, but watch out for a Roma resurgence and, of course, the two Milan teams will be in the hunt. Give us one player to look out for: Fernadinho at Man City looks a good buy. I think it could be the year of the Brazilian, with Oscar at Chelsea and Coutinho at Liverpool having good campaigns last season. Should Rooney leave Man United and what do you make of the Gareth Bale and Luis Suarez sagas? It is difficult to know how much of the drama is media-driven, Rooney says he didn’t ask for a transfer, but Sir Alex Ferguson said he did. And, of course, there is history between Rooney and Moyes. I believe it is time for a new challenge for him,

and Chelsea would be a good destination as Mourinho could get him back to his best - and with the 2014 World Cup approaching, we would all like to see that. As for Suarez and Bale, these sagas could rumble on. Daniel Levy, at Spurs, is notoriously difficult to negotiate. But if the package is big enough and Bale wants to go, then let him. The Suarez situation is a little different because he has given one reason for leaving and then changed his mind and given another reason. It appears that only Arsenal at the minute are in for him, but Liverpool are playing hard-ball over the price. If Arsenal do buy him, I do not think he will win them the league, and it will be a bold move to spend that much money. As a Liverpool fan, after his antics last season, I would be happy to see the back of him! Will England qualify for the World Cup, and how do you feel Roy Hodgson is doing? They should do, provided they hold their nerve - it will be a disaster if they don’t. As for Hodgson, he has done all right so far. It is difficult task, with the old guard in Lampard et al, but he is introducing youth and I reckon he’ll do fine. What season will CD Tenerife have? Hopefully a successful one. They have added some good players to the squad and should have enough to stay up and, hopefully, finish in the top half of the table.

who now occupy first and second spot. A first 180 from Mario helped Palms to a whitewash victory over the Playboys, while Bar 180 A took all the points as they hammered Scruffy Macs. The Target Bar derby was a close-run affair, finishing all-square after Army lads Mark and Steve hit maximums and then took the trebles. Another close encounter came at Phoenix bar as they entertained The Pub. It

They have had a tough start to life in the Premier League and Gary and his men have really struggled. So I am sure they won’t mind if I say their 6-2 win over Ourplace Naturals was a bit of a surprise! The two big winners in this section are the two

didn’t look like being close, however. The Pub scorched into a 4-0 lead, only for Mitch to stop the rot in the last singles, hitting a 180 to boot. The Phoenix boys then won the last three rubbers to complete an amazing turnaround. Elsewhere, La Caña Pirates enjoyed a fine 5-3 success at Vikings Ensecan. Division 1 looks to be developing into a seriously-competitive league. Just four points

separate the top five places. Yet it remains a mystery how Rood are still top because they have drawn their last four matches! In fact, they had to take the last leg from Gaffers B to avoid a first defeat. Lol hit his first 180 during a comfortable 6-2 win at Barracuda Bytes, and Trap Door went one better than that with a 7-1 beating of Bar 180 B. Marilyns recorded their second win of the campaign as they

cruised past Amistad 1, while Bar 180 C won for the first time in six weeks with victory over Naughty Nautas. There was no doubting where the match of the day was in Division 2. La Caña Lancers welcomed leaders Tenerife Sun to Los Abrigos and put in an excellent performance to hold the Silencio outfit to a draw. Young Johnny had an 18-darter during the match. That result enabled Bar 180 D to narrow

the gap slightly with a 6-2 win at Sundowners. Emerald Shamrocks didn’t fare quite so well, losing 5-3 at The Rebels despite maximums from Gary and Matt. The bottom two suffered heavy defeats. Playgirls took one point at Picassos, while Phoenix Flights managed just two from Amistad 2. Pas O Nadas won a tight match with Barracuda Hunters, taking the trebles leg for victory.

Running by the light of the silvery moon

Sport In Brief Charley’s cherished challenge

THE Women’s British Open, which began yesterday (Thursday) at the St Andrew’s course, includes a teenager with stars in her eyes. England’s 17-year-old prospect Charley Hull “dreams every day” of winning the tournament. The Kettering girl is already rated as the Brit most likely to succeed, following a string of superb results as an amateur from the age of 10! And she has made an impressive start to her first season on the Ladies European Tour, finishing second in her first five events. If she were to triumph, Charley would be the first English winner since Karen Stupples in 2004. But she faced a daunting prospect yesterday after heavy overnight rain, and more in the morning, left the Old Course sodden.

High diver’s a splash hit

GARY HUNT, a specialist high diver, collected a silver medal in swimming’s World Championship in Barcelona on Wednesday. He is a three-time Red Bull World Series champion and was one of the favourites coming into the competition. But the Paris-based diver from Southampton, who held a 38.30-point lead over nine-time World Series champion Orlando Duque going into the final round, blew it with his final dive, from a 27-metre-high scaffolding tower platform. “I was disappointed with that dive, but I am so happy to be on the podium,” he said, after being squeezed out of the gold by less than a point by Duque. “I never thought I’d see a World Championship medal.”

Third Test’s farcical start

THE third Ashes Test between England and Australia got off to a woeful start at Old Trafford yesterday, with the Decision Review System again under fire. Even Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, got in on the off-field action following the dismissal of Usman Khawaja, ridiculously confirmed by the third umpire. The Aussie PM tweeted: “I’ve just sat down to watch the Test. That was one of the worst cricket umpiring decisions I have ever seen.” No wonder he and the Aussie side were angry because Khawaja, supposedly caught behind off Graeme Swann, reviewed the “out” decision by on-field umpire Tony Hill, and the Hot Spot technology appeared to back him up. But third umpire Kumar Dharmasena disagreed and gave Swann the nod. Shane Watson went for 19 and the Aussies had progressed to 129-2 when Swann collected his second wicket, Chris Rogers going for an excellent 84. But skipper Michael Clarke steadied the ship again by progressing to a well-deserved century and steering his side past the 250 mark with just three wickets down.

El Medano hosted the second n i g h t - t i m e coastal trail last Saturday night.

There were three different routes along the coast, 5, 15 and 30 kilometres. The trail, organised by the departments of Tourism and Environment, used the natural paths within the municipality and just the light of the moon and the stars. This year each participant was asked to contribute a kilo of non-perishable food for the association ‘Virgen de la Esperanza de San Isidro. The 5km route commenced on the trail and other two 15 and 30 kilometres began on El Medano beach. Part of the route encompassed the Special Natural Reserve of the Red Moun-

tain taking in the beautiful areas of El Médano, La Tejita, Montaña Roja and Eres del Hermano Pedro. Originally the idea of the moonlight trail was born out of a wager between friends during a radio talk show, last year, hence the first trail taking place in 2012. This year José Francisco Padrón and Ana Hernández (30 km) and Jonay Prieto and Ángela González (15 km), were winners of the II Vida Trail Nocturno ‘Ruta Volcanes del Litoral’ in El Médano.

Adeje sport, not just for summer The Department of Sports in Adeje has prepared two months in August and September filled with activities for the enjoyment of residents. Adeje Councillor, Adolfo Alonso Ferrera, has announced a whole list of sports available in the municipality of Adeje including; soccer tournaments, swimming, bodyboarding etc. He said: “It’s important to provide the public with different sports proposals in order to develop healthy lifestyles, improve quality of life and development of the whole person. For this reason, we have outlined this. “

Summer began with the basketball camp, which brought together more than 100 athletes who in addition to learning new and innovative game tactics, were able to exchange views in respect to a sport that is gaining much importance in Adeje. The swimming across La Caleta takes place on the 3rd August, it will involve more than 100 people and be in two rounds, one for adults and one children. The Youth Soccer Tournament will be held on the 17th and 18th August. More information available from www. adeje.org

Summer water sports in Arona The municipality of Arona have successfully completed their summer sports courses for the month of July and had a total of 247 participants. The mini courses including water activities such as kayaking are aimed at youngsters from 6 years of age. They take place every weekday for a duration of one hour, beginning at noon, covering aspects of water safety ,

navigation and handling of crafts in the water. Mónica Sierra, Councillor for sport in Arona, “Without a doubt approaching the different nautical activities for the population is more than an activity, I believe that in our municipality it is a moral commitment. Having as we have such a great coastal strip, it’s advisable that people know the alternatives offered by nautical sports.”
