New ‘looky’ fury ‘UNFAIR COMPETITION’: Street vendors in Benalmadena’s Puerto Marina.

By Matt Ford A COSTA DEL SOL business association has warned that the number of ‘looky looky’ street vendors in holiday hotspots is spiralling out of control. It comes as the Benalmadena Association of Merchants and Entrepreneurs (ACEB) described the situation as “alarming” and “critical” in a statement. President Rosa Maria Gonzalez Rubia said: “The problem is much bigger this year, we are receiving continual complaints from local businesses, especially those located on the seafront and marina.

“They are powerless witnesses of the unfair competition imposed by this illegal activity, which often takes place on their own doorsteps.” In April the town council discussed how to solve the issue in a meeting with officials from neighbouring Torremolinos, but since then “they have done nothing,” continued Ms Rubia. “There appears to be a total lack of political will to implement the proposals that were put on the table back in April,” she added. The suggestions reportedly included strengthening coordination between Local and Na-

tional Police forces and the development of a public awareness campaign, but neither have materialised, according to ACEB. Benalmadena’s mayor, Victor Navas, claimed the police are overrun because “the number of sellers has doubled and many now act aggressively to-

wards officers rather than packing up and moving on when confronted.” He added the only way to deal with the problem is “better border control over illegal merchandise and a change in Spanish law since the activity is currently punished only with administrative sanctions.”

A SPANISH teenager who went missing last year ago has been rescued from a satanic sect in the Amazon rainforest. Patricia Aguilar, 19, vanished from her home in Alicante on the Costa Blanca 18 months ago, but she has now been found in central Peru. Investigators have also held Peruvian Felix Steven Manrique Gomez, 35, a former trainee electrician suspected of heading the Gnosis cult which kept three women as sexual slaves. According to the victim’s relatives, she was lured to the South American country by Gomez through social media. They say he targets emotionally unstable girls promising to save them from the end of the world, urging them to leave their families as soon as they turned 18. Referring to himself as ‘Prince Gurdjeff,’ he reportedly considers himself to be a messenger from God sent to Earth ahead of the planet’s imminent destruction, which he announced in a series of online clips posted under false names. He used a text-reading soft-

Free, complete discretion, the treatment is largely personal. “Flat-chested girls from Latin America…Write to me if you are interested.” A source close to the case revealed he ‘began screaming to be taken to a hairdresser’ when charged with human trafficking at a local police sta-

tion, adding: “He is a special person who takes care of his image, and he knew that this was going to go out in the media, that is why he took an interest in getting a shave and wearing dress clothes. He takes care of that, because he is still luring [women] on social media.” Patricia was found five hours after the arrest at a private property where she was


looking after her one-monthold baby and four other children aged between four and 10, all fathered by Manrique and suffering from malnutrition according to detectives. She has now been reunited with her family after her father Alberto travelled to Peru. “It was a psychological kidnapping,” he told Spanish media. Non-profit support group SOS Desaparecidos, which has been supporting the family, revealed in a tweet her parents ‘have been knocking on doors on land, sea and air to get Patricia out of the nightmare of human trafficking.’

RAINBOW ROAD: A scene from the final parade in central Madrid.

Bursting with pride IT is the biggest Pride celebration in Europe. And the 2018 Madrid Orgullo was particularly special after an estimated two million revellers flocked to the capital to mark the 40th anniversary of the first authorised LGBT demonstration in Spain. Organised by the Homosexual Liberation Front of

Castilla, it took place when ‘homosexual acts’ were still criminalised. The 10-day festivities ended with a spectacular giant parade through the city’s streets, while the opening march, this year dubbed ‘Conquering equality, TRANSforming society,’ was for the first time led by two government ministers.

Corruption cash MARBELLA’S council has said it hopes to reclaim €30 million from corruption probes after local authority members backed plans to use the money for public services. Angeles Muñoz, the city’s mayor, told councillors it would be up to political parties sitting on the local authority to decide where the money would be spent. She was speaking at a session held last Thursday. Measures passed previously mean such funds can be spent on services and

they do not have to be used to pay off debts. The pledge comes as the council recently received around €12 million from the sale of five properties seized in a corruption investigation into former Marbella Planning Manager Juan Antonio Roca. Muñoz said €3.6 million would be spent on boosting employment in the city. The money is set to go towards training schemes and support for disadvantaged groups and small businesses.

‘Fraud’ probe SIX suspects have been arrested in Marbella in connection with the alleged defrauding of more than 40 people out of more than €1.2 million through illegal investments. Officers probing the suspects said the suspects’ scheme could have affected people in Leon, Barcelona, Huesca and Murcia. Authorities claimed amounts taken ranged from €7,000 to €80,000 in some cases, adding up to the more than €1.2 million overall. Police were called in to investi-


gate the ring after someone claimed they had invested some €15,000 into a shares investment scheme. The complainant added the company attempted to get him to stake a further €10,000 in the stocks venture. They told him he would make a return of €1 million within weeks if he did. The investor said he was later told the money had been lost which is when he reported the case to police, claiming he was scammed.

POLL OF THE WEEK Should the conservative party call for a no-confidence vote in Prime Minister Theresa May? LAST WEEK’S POLL: Do you think England are going to win the World Cup?

Yes 32%

No 68%

EWN online this week WATERY GRAVE: A piece of the wreckage and (inset) a US Air Force photo showing the attack on U-996.

Nazi sub found THREE Spanish divers have found the wreckage of a German Second World War U-boat off the coast of northern Spain. The crew blew the U996 vessel up using timed charges after it was badly damaged by Allied bombers in November 1943. Eight of the 52 men on board died trying to reach the shore near Estaco de Bares, a peninsula in La Coruña Province, Galicia. The desperate move came after US Navy and RAF Liberator bombers targeted the submarine for an entire day, with one plane, believed to be an RAF Caralina flying boat, shot down by its anti-aircraft gun. One RAF Wellington bomber also joined the battle and dropped depth charges before the crew scuttled their ship. Naval historian Yago Abilleira, who was part of the team which unearthed the wreck after years of searching, said U-966 was abandoned “in desperation, as Allied planes were attacking them on all sides and they

knew time was running out.” Its remains were found scattered over a wide rocky area at a depth of 24-26 metres, and the men are now aiming to find the Allied plane which they think lies close to the submarine. The precise location will not be revealed since it constitutes a war grave. Three local fishing boats reportedly saved some of the German crew after they were found clinging to offshore rocks. The U-boat, nicknamed Gut Holz (Good Wood), was returning from a mission in North America when it came under attack on November 10, 1943 having been launched just 10 months earlier. Commander Eckehard Wolf flew to Germany a year later under a false name, according to German website Spain’s fascist leader at the time, the dictator Francisco Franco, is also thought to have helped other members of the crew return home.

Taking the hiss A SNAKE measuring more than 1.2 metres long has been found in a baby’s pushchair on a Costa del Sol balcony. The animal was spotted by the child’s dad while he was watering plants outside his home on Calle Federico Fellini in Malaga City. Specialists from the Local Police force’s GRUPONA nature protection branch removed the Montpellier snake after it was seen slithering through the front door while the man’s wife and three children were inside. The family told the officers they thought it had exited the property through the terrace door and hidden in

the pushchair. Using a protective glove and other specialist equipment they pulled the reptile out from beneath the seat pad. It reportedly behaved aggressively throughout the procedure, striking at and biting the glove several times. The snake was taken to a local animal recovery centre and will be released into the wild after a period of observation. Montpellier snakes are common in Spain and can grow to two metres in length. It is a venomous species but bites are not considered dangerous to humans.

Fresh appeal launched Police renew missing expat plea

TENERIFE MYSTERY: Kevin Ainley vanished in 2004.

by Staff Reporter INVESTIGATORS have launched a fresh appeal in connection with the disappearance of a British man in Spain 14 years ago. Kevin Ainley, from Fleetwood in Lancashire, was 24 when he vanished on the island of Tenerife in June 2004. The expatriate had been working in the Playa de las Americas area popular with British holidaymakers. And detectives now say they want to speak with anyone who witnessed a row he had with door staff at the Cafe del Mar nightspot in the early hours of June 13. Garry Fishwick, a review officer at Lancashire Police, said in a statement: “I appreciate the length of time that has now passed, but every year that comes and goes is another year of unanswered questions and diminished hope for Kevin’s family who are desperate for information. “Kevin was well-known by his friends and family for being a lively personality and we

find it difficult to understand he’s simply disappeared without a trace. Somebody knows something.” Kevin had also previously lived in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, and moved to the Canary Islands in March 2004. He is described as being around five feet eight inches tall with dark brown hair, tattoos featuring the name ‘Kevin,’ a small doll and a Native American woman on his arm. Mr Fishwick added: “June 13 - the day of Kevin’s last sighting was the same day that France beat England 2-1 with an injury time penalty in the UEFA European Championships. “A popular British tourist destination like Playa de las Americas would have been a hive of activity, especially around the area of ‘The Patch’ which was popular for its bars and restaurants. “I’m asking holidaymakers and expats to cast their minds back to that day and think if they saw anyone matching Kevin’s description in the hours leading up to his disappearance.”

Dirty cash crackdown SIX people have been held in connection with the laundering of drugs money in the Campo de Gibraltar area. The arrests are the latest in a series of police crackdowns on traffickers and come in the wake of an un-

dercover surveillance operation on the Palmones River. Several properties bought using up to €950,000 of dirty money and used to store drug-running boats identified during the probe, leading investigators to swoop on the addresses.

Ten powerful speedboats, two cars, two tractors and trailers modified for transporting the vessels, and four motorcycles were seized during the raids, while those arrested have been remanded in custody according to a court statement.

Unhappy campers residents’ association said the tourists are causing damages and “dumping their wastewater straight onto the promenade.” She added: “one of them has been parked in the same place for at least two years, so there’s no way the waste can be dumped elsewhere.

“I’ve counted up to 11 mobile homes between the Fuengirola Beach apartments and Los Marinos beach bar [around 300 metres apart] alone! “They occupy parking spaces for months and sit on the pavement as if it were a campsite to cook, wash and chat with other travellers.



“And the strange thing is that the Local Police don’t enforce the rules, so I guess they’ve been given no guidelines on how to deal with the problem.” The centrist Ciudadanos political party has pledged to suggest a raft of changes to the rules over parking mobile homes in the area during the next council plenary session. “We believe a change in local laws is necessary,” said a party official.

The University of Sevilla academics working at the Peña de los Enamorados site said their estimates could mean the paintings were among the oldest of their kind in Andalucia. Researchers added the style of the artwork in the part of the Unesco World Heritage site known as the Matacabras shelter could be unique among those found in Europe.

The painting, which academics said depicted the face of a sleeping woman, was analysed using Uranium-Thorium technology capable of estimating the age of such finds. X-rays and digital image processing were also used during the study and researchers undertook an analysis of the style to back up the findings. The project forms part of the University of Sevilla’s Atlas Research Centre’s Nature, Society and Monumentality study. It was funded by Spain’s Ministry of Economy.

OUR VIEW PM safe this week? JUST when it seemed that the British government had reached a modicum of agreement over the Brexit plans, first David Davis and then Boris Johnson decided to resign from the cabinet. There were rumours that the influential 1922 committee of Conservative backbenchers were considering calling for a vote of no confidence in Prime Minister May but those opposing her did not find 48 MPs prepared to sign such a declaration. At the end of the day it appears that the Tories are more interested in trying to influence the final Brexit deal from within rather than deciding to tear the minority government apart when there is still so much to do before March 2019. Two voices which had been strident in calling for Brexit, Liam Fox and Michael Gove have kept relatively low profiles during the last week with Gove actually saying that he is 100 per cent behind Mrs May’s Brexit plan (if he was talking about a football manager, you would know that they were about to be sacked). Tellingly, the four arguably most important positions in government, Prime Minister, Chancellor, Foreign Secretary and Home Secretary are now all held by MPs who voted to Remain so to some extent it would appear that a softer exit is now possible. Having said that, both Davis and Johnson are now likely to be more voluble about their opposition to the plans and Jacob Rees Mogg has made it clear that not only is he opposed to the plan, but thinks Boris Johnson would make an excellent Prime Minister. As the saying goes, watch this space!

‘Modern slavery’ probe

Party resort’s dark side exposed A UK media investigation has revealed how young Britons heading to Mallorca for summer work are turned into ‘sex trophies’ and ‘modern slaves.’ Responding to recruitment adverts offering €100 per day for shifts of four to six hours in Magaluf, they are scammed into handing over their passports by bullying landlords before or forced to live in cramped, dirty accommodation. The British government has even issued warnings after a Foreign Office probe into nightspot owners who pay below-minimum wages and charge inflated rents for substandard flats. A 19-year-old A-level student who did not want to be named told The Sun: “I didn’t really do any planning apart from buy a cheap one-way ticket to Palma Airport. I had £350 hidden in my bag. “I knew there would always be touting jobs for clubs so I wasn’t that worried. Another girl put me in touch with a local Spanish man who worked for a few of the clubs. “I was told I would have to work a week in advance and give him my passport as a deposit for my accommodation... foolishly I agreed. “Things came to a head when I went to collect my wages only to be told I wasn’t bringing in enough punters and had earned nothing. “I had been conned. I had worked five days for nothing. It was basically slave labour. I was left skint. I asked for my passport and he said I could have it back once I had completed my first month’s work. “I spent most of the next 10 days in tears

If one of the boys doesn’t get aroused his girl has to do a forfeit.” James ‘Jamesy’ Alton, 33, who has appeared on the ITV talent contest X Factor, accepted a job as an entertainment manager on the island. Also speaking to The Sun, he said: “They told me I would be paid €2,000 a month and provided with an apartment,” he revealed. “On the first day I didn’t ask for a contract, you know you are settling in and enjoying the job. “After that I asked for a contract and first

of all the agency said we have nothing to do with it we just place you. “From then I asked the guys for a contract in Santa Ponsa and they said there was no point giving me one as it would be in Spanish, they said I wouldn’t understand it. “Then a couple of weeks later they said we aren’t going to pay you your full wage and that the cost of my apartment would be taken out of my wage.” They then told him the rent would set him back €1,600 per month, leaving him with €400 to live with. Director of Communications at the British Embassy, Katy Reid, said: “If you go to Mallorca… make sure you have a contract, without it you are working illegally. “Ask to see the accommodation and find out the rent and costs - do this before accepting as part of a job offer and get this information included in your contract. “If someone has taken your passport and won’t give it back, report it to the police.”


FLIGHT FRIGHT: Customers will be hoping the strike action does not spread.

Ryanair pilots down tools PILOTS who are members of the Irish trade union members will go on strike for the first time today (Thursday) in a row over working practices. Unions representing cabin crews in Spain, Portugal and Belgium will strike for two days on July 25 and 26, whilst the Italian crews will strike just on July 25. Europe’s biggest budget carrier averted widespread strikes just before Christmas 2017 by deciding to recognise trade unions, but has since struggled to reach agreement on terms in some countries. Ryanair, which flies in 37 countries and carried 130 million passengers last year, has so far signed agreements with pilots in Italy and Britain (two of the larger markets), but has also experienced minor disruptions in Germany and Portugal.

Ryanair pilots eligible to vote in a ballot called by the Forsa trade union, which does not include contractors, backed the call to engage in industrial action and will strike for 24 hours. The union, which said 94 of the 95 ballots returned were in favour of industrial action, has advised Ryanair that it will notify it of additional strike days in due course, but also remains available and willing to engage on the issues. Some 120 union members, most of them captains, are directly employed by Ryanair and able to strike, a spokesman for the union said. At the time of writing only pilots based in Ireland are striking (which represent 400 of Ryanair’s 4,000 pilots). Ryanair said it would contact customers travelling from Ireland if the strike went ahead and invited the union to its offices for talks.

The Canadian shopping and entertainment giants are the owners of the largest shopping centres in the United States, and have scrapped initial plans to put down roots in Extremadura. They have concluded that the Costa del Sol offers better access and a denser population, both factors that make it an excellent location for a ‘Eurovegas.’ The A-7 and the AP-7 roads connect the entire Mediterranean coast to Algeciras, and there is also Malaga Airport with international connections and a footfall of

18 million travellers per year. Triple Five Group is already carrying out surveys of the area, and it is believed that it is focusing on sites between Marbella and Manilva. There have already been enquiries sent to owners of large plots of land, where the elements for a project of this size are suitable. A similar model is already underway in the US under the name American Dream Miami, after an investment of €3.4 billion in a site of 70 hectares. Along with hundreds of shops and restaurants, there will be water parks, submarine rides and around 2,000 hotel rooms.

A broad daylight street brawl between two groups of youths has been filmed in Magaluf. Shot outside a branch of fast food chain McDonald’s, the clip shows a gang of barechested youngsters believed to be British trading punches with a second group described as Spanish in local media. One of the holidaymakers is knocked unconscious and seen lying on the ground before onlookers rush to help. The fight starts on the pavement before spilling into the street, and a Spanish pedestrian recording the drama can be heard to say "this happens every day" before adding “knocked out, knocked out," as one of the shirtless pugilists crumples to the floor.

Double tragedy JUST five days following the funeral of Love Island star Sophie Gradon, it has been reported that her 25-year-old boyfriend Aaron Armstrong has been found dead at his home in Blyth. Northumbria Police were called to the house at 12.20pm on Tuesday July 10 by authorities who had found the deceased. According to the police spokesman at the scene, he said “There is not believed to be any third-party involvement and a report will now be prepared for the coroner.” Previously on social media, he had posted a picture of the funeral service, declaring: “I love you with all my heart my beautiful angel. “I’m absolutely heartbroken, I can’t stop crying and I can feel your spirit in my soul. RIP Sophie Hannah Gradon.” Aaron had shared an Instagram photo of the pair together on Monday, captioned:

Love Island Star’s boyfriend found dead

BEACHED: The suspect ran his boat ashore before trying to escape on foot. TORMENTED: Adam Armstrong and Sophie Gradon. “Just wish I could cuddle you all day, miss you so much man Sophie, not a minute goes by without your gorgeous smile being a picture in my mind every day we spent together was so amazing I need them days back. I love you princess.” With family and friends paying tribute to Aaron on social media, his friend wrote: ‘Hope you’re at peace now Aaron, my heart goes out to

your family.’ Sophie, who became part of the first same sex couple after a recoupling in the Love Island series of 2016, was also found dead at her parent’s home in Newcastle three weeks previously on June 22. Reportedly she had suffered bouts of deep depression and was deeply affected by the sudden loss of her good friend Paul Burns.

High speed drama A LOCAL drug smuggler from La Linea de la Concepcion has been arrested on a busy beach in Sabanillas, after being forced to run his boat ashore. Holidaymakers on one of the area’s busiest beaches were taken by surprise when the highpowered speedboat, pursued by a National Police helicopter was forced to run aground amongst a crowd of bewildered beachgoers. Witnesses recorded phone footage of the trafficker attempting to flee the scene by foot, with some shouting, “Run… run”, before the assailant was apprehended by an off-duty officer who happened to be enjoying a day out with his family.

The superfast speedboat, equipped with two high powered outboard engines, had been caught by the System Integral of Outer Vigilance (SIVE) radars earlier in the day whilst navigating through the Gibraltar Straits. The semi-rigid boat, which was found full of fuel cans is believed to have been operating as part of a convoy - used for refueling another vessel travelling with the narcotics aboard. It is thought that the second boat involved quickly headed back into Moroccan waters. Drug trafficking along the coast continues to be an ongoing dilemma for the Spanish authorities, but with new and advanced equipment, border surveillance can be monitored 24 hours a day.


IT has been confirmed by Jose Maria Garcia Urbana, mayor of Estepona, that everything is on target for the construction of the town’s new state-of-the-art ‘high resolution’ hospital to be finished in December this year. The Junta de Andalucia regional government will then begin to install the equipment which will take about six months allowing for the opening to the public in June 2019. Estepona is investing €16 million towards the total cost of around €55 million. The council is responsible for the construction and infrastructure while the Junta and Andalucian health authorities are to supply all equipment and eventually take care of the running of the facility. The hospital will create 200 new jobs in the area, 45 of

The hospital, located in the Santa Maria neighbourhood, will include 38 multi-purpose rooms with their corresponding testing rooms. There will be three operating theatres and an accident and emergency department. The opening will be handled in three stages. To begin with it will be purely consultations, followed by the surgical block and finally emergencies.

Bar-ly believable eateries and drinking spots have all the required paperwork, with 36 having none whatsoever. Mr Fiscal explained his department has only been in

control of managing the establishments since summer 2014, in the wake of a change to regional coastal laws. The move was designed to “streamline the regularisation

process,” and offer “better security to the owners of the premises,” he added, before insisting that there are no administrative issues despite the lack of progress.

Betting scam TWO men have been held for making off with €18,000 after cheating at a Malaga casino. The Italian and Moroccan suspects, aged 40 and 33, are accused of manipulating the ball on a roulette wheel at the city venue and have been charged with fraud.

They were caught when one of the pair triggered an alarm attached to the wheel while the other distracted the croupier, and they were identified via CCTV footage before being arrested. Both have police records for earlier betting scams, according to a police statement.

DELAYED OPENING: The new centre occupies an old sugar mill. A NEW law brought into effect on March 9, has further delayed development of the first Performing Arts Centre in San Pedro de Alcantara. The old sugar mill building situated in El Ingenio, was originally set to be finished in early 2018 But the necessity to adapt the new public sector contract law for the acquisition of furniture and technical equipment has postponed the opening until later on in the year. The reformation work to the building is believed to have cost €905,000 and has already been completed. The newly refurbished centre, with a seating capacity of 275, will be used for performing arts and local cultural events

Art attack as well as conferences, lectures and conventions. “We have to take advantage of the few resources that we have in San Pedro Alcantara, so the fundamental dedication of the centre will be the performing arts, although it will also be prepared to host other activities,” said the deputy mayor. The building thought to have been built in the 17th century by the Marques del Duero was originally used as a sugar

mill. Production stopped in the late 1920’s and the building remained shut until the 1980’s when it was changed into a cultural centre for local performances and exhibitions, but four years ago it was closed again due to newer, more rigid laws on accessibility. Visitors will still be able to admire original parts of the sugar mill building and there will be a dedicated area near the entrance where people will have the opportunity to learn about its history.


Hospital drama CARLOS HERNANDEZ BLANCO, the Andalucian Member of Parliament for the centrist Cuidadanos political party has recently urged the Junta de Andalucia regional government to pull out all the stops to resolve the problems in order for the work to be completed on the Costa del Sol hospital. He stated that Ciudadanos has provided for the cost of the project in its health budget which has increased by €1 billion in the last three years. The Costa Del Sol hospital, located on the A-7 road near Marbella, was opened in 1993 and is run by an independent company on behalf of the regional health authorities. At present the hospital provides 400 beds and an excellent Accident and Emergency department which on averages attends 150 patients a day increasing to more than 350 a day during the summer months. Construction began in 2008 to expand the hospital but the project has been beset by political and le-

gal issues. The expansion would provide an extra 150 beds and enable the hospital to seriously increase the amount of specialist units and facilities to further improve the excellent health care already offered. A separate mental health wing is also included in the budget. Mr. Blanco said: “It has been too long and we want in addition to the judicial route, to negotiate with the company in order that the concession can be rescued and that the work is finished.” He added the Junta is to be quizzed on the progress of the project and continued: “The province of Malaga has the lowest number of beds available in Andalucia and this expansion to the hospital would serve to cushion the deficit.” Planning for a new underground car park is believed to have sparked the dispute. Andalucia’s Health Minister Marina Alvarez Benito is also anxious for construction to restart but warned that the legal proceedings will take time.

Tattoo battle THE Spanish Defence Ministry has announced it plans to change its entry rules after a woman was told she could not join due to her tattoo. Estela Martin argued she was being discriminated against after being told a tattoo of a lotus on her foot broke army uniform regulations. The armed forces have yet to confirm if she can be allowed to reapply, she said. Current rules require tattoos, piercings and other body modifications be covered up by men and women while in uniform. Martin was told hers would be visible if she wore a skirt, optional for women in the army who typically wear trousers. Military officials since announced rules will be changed so that tattoos, rings and other body modifications will not be allowed to be shown in uniforms common to men and women. The wording excludes skirts in order to resolve the issue Martin had. Martin said she was happy

RULE CHANGE: Estela Martin was told she could not join due to her tattoo (inset). for other women that the rules were set to change but added the military had not contacted her to offer her a chance to reapply. “When I saw this new measure, at first I felt happy to know that it will not happen to other women. But then I wondered ... what about me?” she said. “If they change the rules they are acknowledging they were unfair to me but I have not had an answer from them,” she added. Martin applied to join the


Spanish Army as a psychologist this year after leaving her job at a hospital in Madrid two years ago. She sat her civil service exam last month. Martin was taking part in a swimming test when an examiner noticed the tattoo and told her she could not continue with the entry process. It may have been seen if she wore a skirt, he added. She claimed men who bore tattoos in similar places to hers were not pulled out of the session.

Ex-BBC host punched in bar By Matt Ford THE family of an ex-BBC host have released a heartbreaking photo of their dad fighting for his life in hospital as they appeal for help tracing his attacker. Comic Jimmy Carol, 63, is hooked up to a ventilator in the picture, and his son James Everall said he is on life support after being punched when trying to defend a group of women being harassed by drunks in Benidorm. The performer from Burscough in Lancashire has a fractured skull and bleeding on the brain. He said: “Today I arrived in Alicante and went straight to my dad’s bedside in the ICU. “Unfortunately after Friday’s positive report there is no further similar update. “My dad was not responsive to me today and quite honestly it was difficult to be with him.

HORROR ATTACK: Jimmy was trying to defend a group of women from drunks. “He is on life support and the machine is doing his breathing. “He has a third CT scan on Monday to see if the bleeding and haemorrhaging reduce but due to his multiple skull fractures the medical team are unable to perform surgery yet.” James, from Chapel-en-leFrith, Derbyshire, also confirmed a £20,000 cash reward is on offer for information leading to the attacker being held. Friend Christine Coles said on social media ‘top celebs’ from TV comedy Benidorm will be among those perform-

ing at fundraising shows, adding that a crowdfunding page will be set up. James earlier said the attacker, who hit his dad so hard he was unconscious when he hit the floor, was six feet tall and wearing a red England shirt. He added: “Please pray for my brother and I who are obviously shaken and disturbed by all of this. “And please pray for the person who did this. Pray that they realise the gravity of their drunken actions and that they have the courage to turn themselves in.”

Pool dive paralysis Brit father loses use of legs after pool accident A BRITISH father is facing major surgery and can no longer use his legs after he hit his head on the bottom of a pool while holidaying in Mallorca. Keith Dungait, 42, was said to be critically ill in hospital following the head-first dive into a pool at a hotel in the resort of Cala d’Or on the island. The father of two was on holiday with wife Christina and friends when the accident took place. They have since launched a fundraising drive which aims to get him treatment so he can walk again. Friends said on the appeal’s Just Giving page that Dungait had dived into the pool and hit his head on the bottom. “A moment that took just seconds has left Keith in a critical condition with five fractures in his back and

Shelly Kitching, a Facebook friend of Dungait’s, said the 42-year-old had in-

surance but that he could remain in hospital for “a while” longer. “We are raising money to help bring him back to Britain and for his family. Wishing our crazy fun-loving friend Keith a speedy recovery!” she wrote in a post. More than €43,600 of the roughly €56,480 has so far been raised on the page.

FLAMBOYANT matador Juan Jose Padilla has suffered another gruesome injury after being gored. The 45-year-old from Jerez de la Frontera has only one eye after being gored in 2011. Now he is recovering from surgery after half his scalp was torn off as he was performing in front of a packed crowd at the bullring in Arevalo in northern Spain. Colleagues rushed to Padilla’s aid after he had been knocked to the floor by a bull, and then attacked on the ground. Padilla was rushed to hospital in Avila where doctors said he had not suffered any brain damage after carrying out a CT scan.

He was then moved to Sevilla where he was put under the care of Dr Alberto Garcia-Perla, a specialist in maxilla-facial medicine who has been treating the matador since he lost his eye in Zaragoza. Medics have said Padilla was lucky to still be alive and revealed that he had remained conscious as his horrific 20cm wound was treated with 40 stitches. The renowned bullfighter posted on social media: “Many thanks to all the followers for their love and support. “I have been overwhelmed by so many expressions of affection, respect and encouragement.”

THE family of a schoolgirl who nearly drowned when her hair got tangled inside a hotel swimming pool filter is suing travel operator First Choice. Darcey Morgan, who is now seven, turned blue after she became trapped underwater for two minutes while on holiday in Spain with family in April 2017. The girl was taken to hospital from the H10 Rubicon Palace in Lanzarote, and the traumatic incident has apparently left her with psychological problems. Mum Alex Morgan explained that seeing her daughter in such a state had been a ‘nightmare,’ made worse by a perceived lack of action by the hotel and tour company. Mrs Morgan said: “The whole incident was an absolute nightmare and we truly thought at one point that we were going to lose our little girl. “A huge amount of hair

tion will not only raise awareness of issues relating to hotel swimming pools, but also lead to clear safety improvements. “This simply cannot be allowed to happen again.” Mrs Morgan had reportedly been told by other holidaymakers that they had reported the problematic filter to staff. Two days prior to Darcey’s ordeal, a boy had got his swimming trunks sucked into the device and ripped apart. Philip Banks of Irwin

Mitchell solicitors commented: “This is a truly shocking case and, while Darcey survived, the incident has had a lasting impact on her and she will likely need access to specialist support in order to put what happened behind her.” A spokesman for First Choice said at the time that it had taken ‘immediate action’ to resolve the issue, and had been in contact with Mrs Morgan to ‘update and reassure them on the steps we have taken.’

FLIGHT FRIGHT: Many claimants are unaware that they will not receive the full amount. passengers on their way through arrivals halls - urging them to fill out forms on the spot -

which they then take to the airlines. However, many claims firms

help themselves to a big chunk of the payout (in the smallprint), sometimes over 40 per cent. The scourge has been on the rise in the past 18 months as agents hunt for alternatives to payment protection insurance (PPI) claims, which are being clamped down on. The problem is aggravated by the failure of many airlines to inform passengers of their entitlement to apply for compensation directly. Passengers whose flights are cancelled should be booked on other flights and compensated for the resulting delay in their arrival, or given a full refund.

CUFFED: One of the suspects is taken into police custody.

Family shooting horror THE National Police have held two brothers in Getafe, Madrid who motivated by revenge, shot

dead their brother-in-law while he was accompanied by their sister.

The victim was killed leaving his lawyer’s office, on April 6 in the Chamberi district of Madrid, where he was preparing his defence on charges of murdering his father-in-law. According to a statement by the High command of the Madrid police force the arrests were carried out on a property the brothers had been hiding out in during the investigation. The brothers fired four close range shots at their sister’s husband, hitting him once in the shoulder and once in the head. They then immediately fled the scene in a stolen car which was later found torched in Pozuelo de Alarcon. A police probe was launched soon after the incident. The officers placed the accused under heavy surveillance and tracking protocols, where they became aware of the extreme measures the brothers took to avoid being located, which nevertheless ended with their arrests.

Nightclub shooting HOLIDAYMAKERS fled the British Square ‘Guiri zone’ area in Benidorm as a young man was shot. In what is currently believed to have been a turf war over drug trafficking, a British holidaymaker was caught in the crossfire and shot in the leg. Police rapidly closed off the area and shortly afterwards arrests were made in

both Benidorm and Villajoyosa hospital, where one was attending having been wounded in the battle. The shooting, which occurred at approximately 11pm, which was initially thought to be a terrorist attack by those at the scene, caused a social media frenzy, quickly being picked up by the British tabloids.

MESSAGE SENT: Bus stormed by Arran.

Tourism backlash goes on A TOURISTIC bus came under attack on Monday, by two members of Arran, the youth movement of the radical CUP party. The Marxist pro-Cataluña independence group was protesting overcrowding of holiday hotspots. The activists boarded the open top bus, as it stopped outside the Olympic village, lighting green and white flares and displaying a huge sign saying: ‘Stop mass tourism in the Catalan countries.’ Arran posted a picture of the demonstration on its Facebook page. The groups also warned of further protests and threatened to take their protest to other parts of Spain to show their discontent at systematic

overcrowding of holiday hotspots. Arran claims it is not against tourism but rather the ‘massification’ of tourism which they claim is ruining local people’s lives. Adding the uncontrolled large scale tourism ruins residential areas, prices locals out of holiday destinations and long term rental properties at the same time ruining beaches and landscapes. The action in Barcelona was followed hours later by a further two members of the organisation storming a touristic bus in Valencia and displaying the same message. Other Arran stunts include attacking a sightseeing bus filled with British holidaymak-

ers last summer in Barcelona, near the Nou Camp and causing havoc in Palma’s high end marina last August. Two weeks ago, in a less publicised stunt Arran activists had to be cut free after chaining themselves to a famous Gaudi sculpture in Barcelona. Sources from Barcelona’s metropolitan services (TMB) tried to down play the incident claiming no damage was caused to property, or any delays to the bus service schedule. Adding the protesters left soon after displaying their sign. Gerardo Pisarello, first deputy of the mayor of the Barcelona City Hall, played down the incident calling it a ‘symbolic initiative.’

MEETING: Obama met with Felipe in Madrid. BARACK OBAMA, the former President of the United States, has met with Spain’s monarch King Felipe in Madrid for a tour around the Reina Sofia art gallery. Pictures released by the royal family’s Twitter account showed the ex and current heads of state taking in works including Pablo Picasso’s Guernica and several by Salvador Dali.

King Felipe presented Obama with a book about the painting, regarded by some as one of the great paintings of the 20th century, as a token of friendship. Royal sources said the book included a dedication which read in English: ‘For President Obama, as a testimony of my friendship and affection and in memory of our visit together to the ‘Guerinica,’ an eternal icon

of the most universal art.’ The visit follows a speech made by the former President at the Summit of Technological Innovation and Circular Economy held in Madrid last Friday. It also comes as King Felipe travelled with Queen Letizia to the United States last month. Their trip culminated in a meeting with President Donald Trump in Washington DC.

Grateful fencers! Lions donate €1,000 to club THE President of the La Cala de Mijas Lions Club, Julie Barry, recently made her last presentation at the end of her Presidential year. She presented a cheque for €1,000 to Luis Hernanz, technical coach for the Fencing Club in La Cala de Mjas. The money will be used to purchase material, licences and grants, and was very much appreciated by them. The members’ ages range from eight to 58 and they all have a great time learning this wonderful sport. They train hard for championships which take place throughout the year, and many medals have been won by its members. The club was started 12 years ago and has gone from strength to strength. It plays a vital role in the local community, and long may it continue to provide this very important sporting activity. The new President Margaret Bobowicz took over on July 1 with vice president Anita Humphreys.

THEY DID IT AGAIN: The Mijas Lions present yet another cheque. She is looking forward to guiding the club through another year, helping those in need in our community. This being the 20th anniversary year she hopes, with nearly 30 members, to continue to raise the much-needed funds required by the local community. During Julie’s year in office the club raised over €75,000 for those in need. What an achievement this was!

The funds are raised through many Lions events and the 50 volunteers who help run the shop at 12 Calle Torremolinos, La Cala de Mijas. The shop is open Monday to Saturday 10am to 2pm, so go in and support these ladies and gentlemen. Volunteers and donations are always warmly welcomed. Tel. 677 059 061.

A prize for the most colourfully-dressed lady was won by Pat Fisher. A total of €175 was raised through entry fee and a bring-and-buy stall, while €215 was raised in the Andalucian Championship in September 2017. A total of €390 was therefore donated to the Cudeca Cancer Care Hospice. CUDECA is a non-profit organisation whose mission is to offer specialised care and assistance to people with advanced

Triple A dog of the week

CLINTON: Looking for a forever home.

CLINTON (ref 22296B) was found with two other dogs on an abandoned finca in Rocio Naqueles. He is a lovely male, very social with people and other dogs. Also a very good boy, obedient and responsive. Born in

2013, he is 58 cm tall. Clinton is very gentle. Would you give him a good home? Call Lesley on 642 731 068. Or visit Triple A Shelter on the Ojen Road.


Age Concern Estepona & Manilva THE shop under the management of Marie-Andree has faced severe difficulties this year as Estepona continues to have its streets redeveloped. Calle Zaragoza has suffered months of noise, dirt and general building mess. The charity expected a loss of income as clients have struggled to arrive and it says a lot for the quality of goods sold that many customers still arrived. Donations continue to be delivered and the charity is grateful to those who make sure they have new goods to sell. When the shop reopens after the summer break (July 27 to September 3) things will be back to normal, but with better pedestrian access to the shop and a handy car park under the Plaza. Shop hours will remain 10am to 1.30pm Monday to Friday, plus the first Saturday of the month. Like most charities Age

Concern needs more volunteers to work in the shop and the community. A few hours a week is all that is asked for and the benefit it brings to those who need help is immeasurable. One specialist role is urgently needed with the charity seeking someone who is prepared to take on fundraising responsibilities. Age Concern is a charity and is non-profit making. This means it has to balance income and expenditure with no large reserves in the bank. The charity is also seeking someone to maintain and repair disability equipment. Also, more volunteers are needed to work in the community with older people and in the shop. All the people who work for Age Care are unpaid volunteers. Contact Tony on 608 458 555 or 951 318 234 to find out more.

Fixed rate or variable rate mortgage? Mortgage Expert by Sara DIFFERENT from the UK, changing your mortgage in Spain after you have signed the deeds, can both be expensive and difficult. This makes it important to choose your mortgage wisely from the very start. In Spain, you have two main types of mortgages. The most common is variable rate mortgages, known as tracker mortgages, where the interest changes once a year, always at the same date. When fixing the interest rate for the following year, they use the Euribor 12 months rate that is the same all across Europe. The other option is a fixed rate mortgage. Different from the UK, the rate is fixed for the full term and for the full mortgage amount. You can fix the interest rate for up to 30 years. “Do you recommend a fixed or variable rate mortgage, is a normal question we get from the clients,” Sara Stannard says. She works as a British client advisor at Bank in Spain and specialises in expatatriate

and international clients buying their holiday home in Spain. “We never recommend any of the two options,” she continues “since there is not any one correct answer.” Sara mentions two important factors that will help the client decide on what is best for them. “If the client plans to pay the mortgage off quicker than the agreed term, a variable rate is normally the best. Due to the higher early repayment charges on fixed rate mortgages, the client is better off choosing a variable rate.” The other factor is how they can handle a future increase in the interest rate and how they value the certainty of knowing exactly what to pay every month for the next 15-30 years. With record low rates in the Euro and negative Euribor rates for more than two years, it has never been cheaper to opt for a fixed rate mortgage. This is also reflected in the number of fixed rate mortgages that were arranged in Spain last year. “What used to be a niche product five years ago when only one out of 16 new mortgages had a fixed rate, last year we saw that more than one out of three mortgages were fixed rate mortgages,” Sara explains.

NO PLANS: Javid spoke in wake of the police poisoning probe in the Salisbury area.

Javid: sanctions not on the table BRITAIN’S Home Secretary has said Whitehall has “no current plans” to slap more sanctions on Russia in the wake of two people being poisoned in Amesbury. Sajid Javid’s comments come as Dawn Sturgess died in hospital and as Charlie Rowley was in critical condition after the couple were exposed to the Novichok nerve agent. Russia denied any involvement.

Sanctions broadened THE European Union has extended sanctions passed after Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula in 2014. The bloc has prolonged measures restricting economic activity benefiting defence, financial and energy sectors until 2019 and extended a ban on EU companies investing in Crimea.

sia had not provided social, medical or financial support to them, with the Kremlin denying the existence of the operation.

Retirement changes AROUND 90 per cent of Russians said they opposed government plans to raise the country’s retirement age, according to a survey. The Levada poll follows proposals made by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to raise the age to above the life expectancy of some people in the country. Those against claim the Kremlin is using the World Cup as cover for the plans.

Stereotypes ‘broken’ PRESIDENT Vladimir Putin has said Russia’s hosting of the World Cup has dispelled stereotypes about the country. Putin added: “People have seen Russia is a hospitable country, a friendly one for those who visit.” His comments follow the country’s football team losing to Croatia in the tournament’s quarter final.



STAT OF WEEK ‘Baccy sales are on a roll SALES of rolling tobacco in Spain have increased by 91 per cent since 2004. Around 15.4 per cent of the nation’s smokers now prefer to roll their own cigarettes, compared to just 1.4 per cent 14 years ago, according to a new study from the World Health Organisation. And the report found that the main reason for the swing is the lower price of loose tobacco compared with pre-rolled cigarettes, with self-rollers less likely to quit smoking ‘’because they think they are less harmful and more natural.’

12 - 18 July 2018 The amount holidaymakers are forecast to splurge in Spain in July, August and September, a year-onyear increase of 4.1 per cent according to market research firm Turespaña.

TSB blunder sparks squabble AN IT meltdown which left hundreds of thousands of TSB customers unable to access their personal accounts has reportedly left owner Sabadell considering whether to offload the UK-based bank. The row erupted over the role of Sabadell’s in-house IT provider Sabis in the slip-up, leading TSB chief executive Peter Pester vowing to “insource” in a letter to MPs. He added that Sabadell’s “written attestations” over its new IT platform were “instrumental” in his

by Matt Ford company’s decision to migrate customer data. TSB chairman Richard Meddings recently told the Treasury Select Committee that only 29 per cent of complaints received in nine weeks since the botched upgrade took place had been resolved. And an unnamed senior figure added that TSB has paid €2.25 million to customers for the inconvenience and a further €13.5 million to those defrauded in the wake of the blunder.

Sabadell paid around €1.6 billion to acquire TSB in 2015 in what was seen as a key move for the group to reduce reliance on the Spanish market. TSB said in a statement: “Our absolute focus is on fixing the remaining issues, and we are working together with Sabadell to achieve this. We have made a firm commitment that no customer will be left out of pocket as a result of the recent IT issues and no complaint will go unanswered. We are working hard to do this as quickly as possible.”

EIB to fork out €100m in deal THE European Investment Bank (EIB) has inked a €100 million deal with Spanish car interior firm Antolin Group. Part of the European Fund for Strategic Investments, the cash will be used to develop new lightweight components for the next generation of energy-efficient, connected and autonomous vehicles. EIB Vice-President Emma Navarro said: “As the EU bank, we are pleased to support a project fostering innovation investment in a key sector for the European economy, while also promoting highly skilled employment.”

Outrage as Spanish wine sold as French


Motorists not fuelled BETWEEN January and June only 37 per cent of the 735,000 new cars sold in Spain were powered by diesel engines, a year-on-year decrease of 13 per cent, with 57.2 per cent petrol, the Spanish Association of Car and Truck Manufacturers said.

Fare game GRAPE DIVIDE: France’s wine industry is furious over the scandal. UP to 4.6 million bottles of Spanish rose wine have been mislabelled as French and sold in bars, hotels and restaurants, according to investigators. The findings come in the wake of a two-year probe into the wine trade by France’s antifraud directorate. And while most wine was correctly labelled, as much as 3.45 million litres of Spanish plonk was ‘disguised.’ The typical ploy was to stick

French flags on the bottles with labels including ‘Produced in France’ and ‘Bottled in France.’ Remi Dumas, head of the young wine-producers organisation in the Herault region in southern France, said: “For those who wonder why we demonstrate, for all the wineproducers who aren’t bothered by our calls for protest! Consumers open your eyes! 10m [sic] bottles of fake rose from Spain.”

SPANISH on-demand transport firm Cabify has said it ‘categorically denies’ talks over a €2.5 billion sale to US-based Lyft after Spanish media reported the pair were negotiating a deal.

Going postal THE European Commission has ordered Spain’s state postal company Correos to repay €166 million of ‘excessive compensation’ it received from the country’s government from 2004-2010, according to reports.

Octopus market squids in SPANISH diners are up in arms over the soaring price of octopus. The delicacy has become increasingly expensive recently and is currently selling wholesale for up to €10.25, a 26 per cent jump from last year and 45 per cent more than in 2016, according to industry data. In the north of Spain, depleted stocks and re-

duced quotas have seen demand outstrip supply, whereas in Mediterranean provinces catches have remained similar while the market has grown. And the predicament has reportedly seen suppliers and restaurateurs turn to foreign octopus to make up the deficit, with much of the tentacle treat served in eateries now sourced from Morocco, Mauritania and Portugal.

What ‘British’ education system? LEAPY LEE SAYS IT OTHERS THINK IT DO the authorities have any control whatsoever over what is being taught to our vulnerable children who are the very future of the country? By some of the evidence offered up to the British courts of late, it would appear not. This latest legal slop of drivelling nonsense truly does take the whole, anti-British values tin. Rapist Adil Rashid was recently spared jail because he claimed, ‘he was not aware it was illegal to have sex with a 13-year-old girl.’ He maintained that his education left him ‘ignorant of British law!’ He was also the piece of trash that told investigators he had been taught that ‘women were no more worthy than a lollipop that had been dropped on the ground.’ Disregarding the fact that yet another Judge has passed a sentence that is so extraordinary it hovers on the borders of judicial insanity, it got me to thinking ‘just what exactly is going on in the schools of the UK?’ Surely education establishments are legally required to follow some sort of general guidelines that reflect the laws and traditions of the country they are allowed to operate in? Well,

PARADISE: Leapy has a new assistant in the house. don’t hold yer breath. I tried to research it all and believe me it is a complete mishmash of organisations; all apparently empowered to carry out inspections by agreements with the department of education. All have their pompous titles represented by initials (BSI, DSI, SIS, ISI). I didn’t exactly unearth ISIS but it’s probably in there somewhere!

Did I hear someone mention Ofsted? Don’t bother. Of the schools that are supposed to be under the jurisdiction of this main governmental body, many had not been inspected for up to seven years! So, rest easy all of you. Islamic schools all over the country are operating unsupervised, unchecked and happily teaching a whole new generation of youngsters a completely differ-

ent culture, religion and future set of values to regale you all with. When they all leave these learning establishments, and go out into your world with these totally alien attitudes toward British life, the answer is simple, all you have to do is integrate! After all, the snowflakes have been recommending integration for years. Well, in the not too distant future they may finally get their wish. Just not quite sure this reversed integration was actually what they had in mind. Still, a happy Sharia to you all. And good luck! Thanks for all your birthday wishes this week. Still can’t quite believe that with the lifestyle I have led I have managed to get this far. One thing this year’s event did bring into my life was the introduction of a new woman. Her name is Alexa. She does everything she’s told, caters to my every (verbal) whim and shuts-up the second I instruct her to. Paradise! If they could just give her some resemblence of the female form my Utopia would be complete! Oh, I dunno though. Still can’t quite beat the real thing, can you!? Interesting to see my new British licence bears the Union Jack. Looks pretty good to me. Keep the Faith Love Leapy

WHENEVER there’s a couple of weeks of extreme weather in the UK, the red tops are full of scare stories predicting that this is the way it’s going to be from now on with the usual dire consequences. You know: ‘Health authorities have warned that extreme summer heat is set to become the norm, and that we need to get better at preparing for it.’ Health authorities? The norm? Based on what science? What data? What evidence? A few old tea leaves, the eye of a toad and a bloodied rabbit’s foot? Or maybe the same technique for weather forecasting that Great Aunt Ethel used. Go to the beach, bring back a long bit of seaweed, hang it up outside and examine it every day. If it’s dripping wet, it’s raining; if it’s wet but not dripping it has rained. If it looks whitish, it’s frosty. If it looks white, it’s been snowing. If you can’t see it, there’s fog. It it’s dry, it’s fine but if it shrivels up and drops there’s a drought. However, if it’s brown and burnt-looking when it drops, there’s been a heatwave. Infallible! Recent British summers have been rub-

Only mad dogs and Englishmen!

HEATWAVE: The UK is preparing for another scorcher this summer. bish - a few rays of sunshine, lots of cloud, too much rain - accompanied by the inevitable media reports predicting decades without ‘real summers.’ Some years ago, there was a run of mild winters with the red tops sounding off about kids in Britain never getting to make snowballs or see frost on trees. A week or more of hot, cold, wet or windy weather isn’t conclusive proof of some imminent and long lasting shift in the UK’s climate. It’s always been variable! So, for those of you over there, this isn’t

a heatwave ... it’s called summer. Enjoy it while it lasts. Phew! A few weeks without rain? Soon enough there’ll be drought warnings, hosepipe bans and, inevitably, an increase in those water bills ...

LEGALLY SPEAKING Was Horizontal Law broken? Can you tell me if the HPL is within the Spanish Civil Code? If this Law is continually broken over many years, what remedy is there via the courts? There is a mass of evidence to show that the law has been abused or ignored. I am not referring to decisions which are disputed, but to serious breaches of this law that is supposed to regulate Communities of Owners. M C (Costa Blanca) The Law of David Searl Horizontal You and the Law Property is not within in Spain the Spanish Civil Code, whi ch i s t he gener al body of regulatory law. The Horizontal Law is a separate body of rules that regulates Communities of Property Owners. If you have evidence that your Community, by votes at the AGM or by the actions of its officers, has broken this law, you need to consult a Spanish lawyer who is experienced in the affairs of communities. The lawyer can steer you through any complications. Even one owner alone can bring legal action against the Community. If you can gather a group of owners to share the expenses and the problems that may arise, this will be to your advantage.

Jobs for the boys Cassandra Nash A weekly look - and not entirely impartial reaction to the Spanish political scene

A BIG headline in El Mundo announced that Pedro Sanchez was giving away €7 millions’ worth in salaries to those close to him. His buddies, the newspaper insinuated, will be shoe-horned into Renfe, Correos and ADIF amongst other big names and can look forward to cushy jobs now Sanchez is in the Moncloa. The ‘tentacles of state’ - El Mundo’s words - will also inch their way into Bankia, Aena, Enagas, Indra and Red Electrica, as the government can name directors and exert enormous influence. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be. Right or wrong, that’s politics, folks, and not only in Spain but the world over.

That’s my boy! PABLO CASADO inched forward in the race to lead the Partido Popular

now that Mariano Rajoy has reclaimed his old job as Property Registrar in Santa Pola (Alicante). It looked a two-horse race between eternal rivals, the former vice-president Soraya Saenz de Santamaria and Dolores de Cospedal, the PP’s secretary general and Minister of Defence during Rajoy’s last government. It’s still a two-horse race but it will be between Santamaria and outsider Pablo Casado, Rajoy’s former Communications’ chief, attracted by supporters who feared that a victory for either woman would split the party in half. It’s been said that Albert Rivera semi-lookalike, Pablo Casado, has the blessing of Jose Maria Aznar who was president of the Spanish government between 1996 and 2004. Oh no, Aznar protested recently. He has had little contact with Casado, he insisted. ‘Santamaria and

GIVEAWAY: Pedro Sanchez is inching the tentacles of the state throughout Spain.

Cospedal were in my governments, Casado no.’ Was there ever a subtler or better endorsement?

Degrees of involvement CASADO does have a problem, however. There’s the trifling matter of his master’s degree. Just like Cristina

The long and the short of it PEDRO SANCHEZ admitted that the Catalan crisis will not be solved ‘in one, two or even six years.’ The Catalan situation festered during Rajoy’s two terms in office when Soraya Saenz de Santamaria, ostensibly minister responsible for bringing Cataluña back into the fold, did Sweet Fanny Adams. In her sporadic forays into the region she spoke only to the opposition

Cifuentes, former president of the Madrid Community, who acquired a master’s degree in Autonomous Law without attending lectures or, apparently, handing in or defending her thesis. Casado could merely be a super-intelligent PP swot who picked up his master’s in Autonomous Law overnight but being questioned under caution about the degree could scupper his future chances.

and once the ‘Proces’ towards secession gathered momentum she spoke only harsh, threatening words. Five weeks after Sanchez moved into the Moncloa Palace he moved pro-independence politicians remanded for rebellion and sedition to prisons in Cataluña. Sanchez is not kidding himself about Cataluña but, however long it takes, he has shortened it by a few days.

Most political parties will turn a blind eye to candidates’ peccadilloes until they are officially classed as suspects, after which it’s curtains. Ponder on Cristina Cifuentes who resigned because of her dodgy degree and, once she was under the interrogator’s lamp, two pots of face cream that she possibly shoplifted in a Madrid supermarket.

Happy birthday to the RAF, loose men and some gardening

TV COUCH CRITIC by Adam Whalley-Lewis I F you were able to drag yourself away from the sun lounger on Tuesday morning and caught any of BBC1’s coverage of the events to mark the Royal Air Force’s centenary, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. The Royals looked spectacular and a nod to the Duchess of Cornwall, who regularly shows us that a woman of a certain age can totally pull off an above the knee summer dress and to the Duchess of Sussex, who wore less jewellery than anyone in the Abbey and still looked spectacular, the black dress really ‘suited’ her. Sorry, couldn’t resist... There was even a comedy moment when the Archbishop of Canterbury bowed his head, complete with Mitre, with so much reverence that he nearly took Her Majesty’s head off on the way back up - are you picturing cries of ‘off with his head,’ I was. Of course the real stars of the programme were the past and present magnificent men and women in their flying machines and those who keep them up there. The flypast was lump in the throat stuff, coordinated for the BBC by Sophie Raworth, who let’s hope is paid as much as her male counterparts. While the BBC did its civic duty on Tuesday,

FLOWER POWER: Jo Whiley and Joe Swift at Royal Hampton. ITV were showing This Morning and then Loose Women. LW (as I like to call Loose Women) has reportedly recruited a chap to be on the panel. This year Robbie Williams, Paddy McGuinness, Olly Murs and John Barrowman have all been on the panel, but only as guests doing one episode. Not sure what I think about a full time bloke. It could turn the show into a Victoria Wood sketch where the man is given the potentially sensitive women’s health interview and the ladies all chat about drinking pints and the fact wolf whistling is about to become a hate crime. To be fair, Ruth and Coleen probably will cover the wolf whistle story at some point.

FLYING HIGH: A RAF Typhoon. ITV2 is still showing Love Island... Since moving to Spain I’ve had to learn a whole new way of gardening and lost numerous timid, flowering plants whilst crying ‘but I water them every day,’ so it was a pleasure to watch BBC2’s coverage of the RHS Hampton Court Flower Show last week. I particularly enjoyed Saturday’s show and will steal the ideas about creating privacy in your garden with pride. Another programme running its course last week was BBC1’s Celebrities on the NHS Frontline, you can catch it on BBCiPlayer. I think the concept of the show was probably better than what we actually saw.

HOST WITH THE MOST: Robbie Williams on Loose Women. Can you imagine waking up in hospital and Ann Widdecombe appearing to try and find you a bed, or Michael Mosley telling you he’s not judging you, but then describing someone in rhesus as having a self-inflicted patient problem. Stacey Dooley did a better job in the cardiac unit and Jonnie Peacock shed a tear on the children’s ward. You can’t knock the idea and we can’t thank the wonderful NHS staff, my Mum amongst them, enough for what they do. Just one ask, don’t picture Ann in a nurse’s uniform you just did, didn’t you? This weekend’s TV is dominated by football and tennis. Happy viewing.

The Harbour Marbella, your first port of call Marbella Moments by Nicole King LAST year I was given the opportunity to spend a few months living front line-beach in Marbella. I loved it! My view was spectacular with Gibraltar and Africa off in the distance and mesmerising reflections of sun and moon playing on the ocean. Ironically however it was the port car park that was the most prominent feature and to be honest, quite unsightly. Even walking along the promenade, if you didn’t know what lay beyond all that concrete there’d be no way you’d venture down. Ever since I can remember this port has been one of Marbella’s white elephants in spite of being located in a prime position. The terraces that constitute the upper level haven’t helped either as they completely block the view to the yachts and breathtaking sunsets; you’d have to be a mind reader to know that 377 yachts, breathtaking views and sumptuous restaurants were just

The Harbour View.

but a few metres away. It doesn’t even have a clear identity. Puerto Cabopino, nestled between pine trees and sand dunes to the east side of Marbella is well established, the fishing port ‘Puerto de la Bajadilla’ at the entrance of the city by the ‘Marbella’ arch is very much on the local’s map, particularly next week with the festivities of Virgen del Carmen and Puerto Banus, well, for many, is representative of Marbella itself. At first I thought that perhaps we would call it the Marbella Harbour, but Marc Quinlan, internationally renowned chef got there first, aptly renaming one of Marbella’s most prestigious restaurants on the first floor of the Royal Maritime club ‘The Harbour,’ located at the main entrance to this chic port. So, to avoid confusion, the Marbella ‘Marina’ seems to be the perfect fit. (Personal aside: #MiMarina you now also rightfully have a port named after you too!!!) The town hall has also started improvements in the Marina and I’m pleased to say that car parks have been replaced by lovely open spaces for seating; much to the restaurants, bars and neighbours’ delight! Also,

as with the Royal Maritime Club, The Harbour restaurant, lounges and terraces are open to the public and undoubtedly offer the most privileged views from the first floor dining room and terraces and with such clarity you can almost see the washing hanging on the lines in Africa; not to mention the food is exquisite!! Also a great place to entertain the children in the summer with all the water activities on offer! Marbella Now TV will be recording in the Marbella Marina all summer and we’d love to see you so why not make The Harbour, our onlocation studio, your first port of call? Check out www.marbellaazul. com for full details on the Fiesta Virgen del Carmen - the Patron Saint of fishermen on July 16 - one of the most beautiful processions in Marbella with boats parading to and from the Puerto de la Bajadilla to Puerto Banus accompanied by local fishermen, pleasure boats and jet skis. A spectacularly unique event and one that’s not to be missed!!!!! @marbellanowtv

TECH FOR THE TIMID MY nephew asked recently: “What happens to our cloud data when there’s a thunderstorm?” My too-geeky answer about needing a Lightning connector is lost on pretty much anyone without an Apple computer which has one. But should the everyday Joe and Jose be using that fabled cloud? Just to be clear, St Peter hasn’t suddenly been surrounded by bits and bytes because ‘The Cloud’ began seeping into our tech awareness over the past 18 years or so. That’s despite any number of wacko data storage ideas which have even included internet access from balloons. ‘Cloud’ is a misnomer. Saving your precious family snaps to the cloud actually sends them somewhere far less romantic: a gigantic sprawling data-centre near Dublin, most likely, or Microsoft’s server farms in Seattle, or winging off to the monstrous Googleplex in California. Cloud storage has become possible thanks to our growing high-speed data access from our Internet Service Providers. Sceptics quite rightly see ‘The World As We Know It’ coming to an end, come the day we suddenly

12 - 18 July 2018

A cloud of suspicion Does every silver lining have a cloud?, wonders Terence Kennedy

THE CLOUD: 18 years and growing. can’t just click and download - better then, they say, to keep all our own data on our own storage, whether that’s hard-drives, flash sticks, increasingly-obsolescent data DVDs and CDs, or clay tablets. But there are compelling reasons for using the cloud. Let me name the

ways. * Backup: the computing ‘rule of threes’ says you should always have at least three copies of any important data, one of them ‘off-site’. If your computer breaks, or goes walkabout, your data will still be safe up there in the cloud when you’re ready to rein-

Solo traveller ‘privilege’ Mike Senker In my opinion Views of a Grumpy Old Man WHY do single travellers get treated like second class citizens? They always get the worst seat in the restaurant. I travel a bit on my own and they always want to stick me in the corner or somewhere out the way. The dumb thing is that I am still given a table for two but always the worst one. My way round that is, of course, to say I’m waiting for a friend. I then tell them, after looking at the menu for a bit that my friend just cancelled and I just order. The waiter isn’t going to say, ‘OK, then we have to move you to the kitchen or give you a toilet view.’ Oh, and you can’t order paella either! Book most holidays and you find the phrase somewhere ‘based on two people sharing’ then further down you will find the single person supplement. Having to fork out for the ‘privilege’ of travelling solo can feel frustrating - not to mention downright unfair. It can seem as though you are being penalised for holidaying on your own. Hoteliers and cruise ships will view singletons as less profitable, as only one person will spend money on food, drinks, goods and en-

tertainment, where there could be two people spending money. My advice is just don’t suffer any of it. There are ways round it. Don’t just do as you’re told by the people you are giving money to for a service. If they want to charge you more or give you a bad table just say ‘no thanks’ and if they don’t give you something better just take your business elsewhere. Body lotion! There is too much body lotion in the world. I opened our bathroom cupboard and there were bottles of it. I asked Mrs S why and she couldn’t give me an answer because she claims she has never bought a single bottle and I certainly haven’t. So we decided it must have been included in gift sets that have been accumulated over the years. We must have 20 bottles of all different makes. I have to admit I use a face cream every day. But body lotion? OK maybe a bit of after sun now and again but body lotion - who can be bothered? I bet everyone, or at least couples or ladies, have bottles and bottles of the stuff that either has never been opened or which has been used once. Go check and if you find some chuck it away because you are never going to use it! If you do buy someone a gift set, and it has body lotion in it, ask if it can be changed for another shampoo or shower gel, or anything, but not BODY LOTION!

stall it. And cloud services can automatically back-up everything you do. * Synchronisation: most cloud services will synchronise between any devices registered to your account. Draft the day’s documents in your office, then access them to continue at home without faffing around with flash drives. * Sharing: if you’re embarrassed sending out scads of pictures of your utterly unique pussycat to your entire address book, just put the photos in the cloud instead and let friends and family choose whether to subject themselves to your moggy or not. * Collaboration: there’s a whole free office suite in the cloud for the asking, and several people can work on the same document, which will always be up to date. Nay-sayers grumble that cloud services can be hacked. Well, so can your own computer. If your stuff really is that sensitive, just keep it on a flash drive in your underground bunker with your stash of corned beef and gas masks.

Cloud: ‘Nein’? CLOUD computing is a cirrus busi ness t hese days (sorry). Mostly, it’s free to try. Microsoft provides OneDrive free with Windows 10, for 5 GB of data. Dropbox gi ves you 2 G B f ree, while Google Drive ups the ante with a generous 15 GB to start you off. These and others hope to hook you (but mainly corporate users) into buying more storage. But free is fine for most of us. With a reasonable broadband connection, you can set most of these programs to backup everything you do automatically. Keeping copies of your data locally is also prudent of course, but com e t he crash (and it will, eventually), it’s comforting to know your precious information is still available from the cloud. As long as there’s no thunderstorm.

What’s happening to Mijas Pueblo? vTHIS is the most beautiful village and the Spanish people are warm and friendly to people from other countries, who live and visit here. Unfortunately I have noticed a decline in standards which may put tourists off visiting this unique village. Mijas sells itself by the way it looks and if it falls short in this department then people will not visit as much and this will harm the Mijas economy. The fountains which grace Virgen de la Pena square are not working and the lift has been out of order for months. There is not even an out of order sign in Spanish and English informing all residents of this appalling fact. Much as I enjoy seeing the excellent flamenco dancers of all ages in the village doing fantastic concerts free of charge, my husband and I specifically extended our stay this year to see the excellent music concerts in the auditorium. For no apparent reason these are not taking place and everyone I talk to is very disappointed about this. I hope they can go ahead in the following


year. We are pleased that the Blues Festival is happening, as that will be well attended. As a tax payer in Mijas Pueblo I feel that I am justified in raising these important issues. In the past I have written to the mayor and received no acknowledgement, as well as not seeing any action being taken on the issues raised, which is disappointing. Sue Butler-Smith, Mijas

Think about neighbours MY family and I live in Benalmadena Pueblo which is a beautiful Spanish village. Our villa is in a very quiet residential urbanisation consisting of families with children, retired and working couples of Spanish and other European nationalities. We have lived here in this small cul de sac for the past 18 years, but as always, things change and two years ago both the neighbouring

BALLOONS: Have been used in the past. I HOPE that this September for the Gibraltar National Day celebration people are not going to release thousands of balloons again. It is not just a criminal waste of the much-needed rare earth gas helium which is vital for body scanners, etc. The balloons themselves become plastic waste in the sea which then ends up being eaten by fish, whales, sea birds etc and kills them in huge numbers. This is happening across the world now, even in inaccessible places and is not a cause for celebration. Michael Hill, Torre del Mar

Riot police used in Benidorm’s ‘guiri zone’ If you see riot police why would you bait them. Get out of the way. We are in Spain... Not England. The Spanish police won’t tolerate yobbish behaviour!!!! Anne Blandford Who is baiting them in this video Anne? The man who is simply walking with his son on his shoulders and is struck by a police officer? I’m sorry but I cannot justify behaviour like that by a n y b o d y, l e a s t o f a l l a p o l i c e o f f i c e r w h o i s supposed to be a highly trained professional in order to know better. What if that strike by the baton had sent the guy to his knees and the child had fallen to the ground? A shameful spectacle in my opinion. Stacey Knight He is very obviously baiting them (very responsible parent NOT!!!) and the whole mob were confrontational as soon as they got a chance! Conveniently the filming doesn’t show what’s going on behind ie mob shouting,taunting and pushing forward towards the riot police ... perhaps leave them to do their jobs ... drive and walk on and you won’t get any trouble would be the preferred intellectual option ... You’re in someone else’s country show respect, abide by the rules or pay the consequences? For the love of God they were lucky to only get

pancy, the paying quests are either a large family group with small children or a large group of adults. We cannot use our garden because of the noise in the day time or we cannot sleep because of the unruly drunken behaviour. The village already has numerous motels, hotels and dedicated holiday apartments. We have approached the property management company and spoken with the owners, but little has changed. We are told that if the situation gets too bad, contact the police! It is not just my family who are affected by these greedy property owners, as all the people in the surrounding villas are affected by the noise and disruption. John, Benalmadena Pueblo

Comments from EWN online a smack on the legs, try that in America or the Middle East and see how well you come off ... Everyone else managed to walk on by peacefully and get on with their business and the police had complete control of the streets and the situation which is their job remember. Unfortunately the opposite in the UK have lost control of the streets in England and hence why people are fearful and don’t feel safe or protected particularly in cities ... totally unacceptable! I abhor this aggressive attitude and behaviour at home so find it embarrassing and shameful to see it misrepresenting us abroad sadly. Minority ruining it for other respectable people. Audrey Gallagher We were up there last night the police were well over the top as per. Everyone was enjoying themselves having a great time. I live in Spain so am used to their no nonsense attitude but last night they wanted trouble. Richard Seamark

If I was the police I think I would be agitated confronted with loads of people flanking me on either side and following behind and why on earth would a father with his child on his shoulders be following the police, why wasn’t he walking in the opposite direction if a full scale fight had broken out, how safe does he think his son would have been? Coral Simpson Tasker

Ryanair to grind to a halt during July due to strikes Maybe they should treat their staff a bit better. Happy, well-treated staff rarely strike as they will lose money. Matt Birks I always say never again with Ryanair... then I can’t get a reasonable flight with anyone else and I think one more try... to be fair the French air traffic people don’t help either! It is maddening to have such a hassle when your just going for a short break. S a d f o r t h e h o l i d a y m a ke r s w i t h c h i l d r e n I think... Helen Mary Anderson

I PURCHASED an additional apar t m ent t hat had been abandoned for several years. The com m uni t y had al r eady arranged for the installation of new smart meters. I paid my lawyer €300 to organise the reinstallation of the electricity to the apartment. Then to my horror, my first bill, without any electric being used, was for €572.01. I questioned this cost with my lawyer, and they went back to suppliers Endesa, only to be told that, that is the cost of reinstallation. So in a nut shell, to reconnect electric to my new apartment has cost me €872.01. I am appalled at these fees, and think it is daylight robbery. Lynette Awcock, Costa Blanca

A plea to dog owners WHILST humans can do a great deal to resolve the situation if they are too hot, all a dog can do is pant to circulate the necessary air through their bodies to cool down. They do sweat through their paws but in this very hot weather, the pavements can cause them pain as they don’t wear shoes. Give them plenty to drink and ensure that they are kept in a well-ventilated area (not a locked car). Anita Brown, Casares

YOUR STARS FOR NEXT 7 DAYS AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 19) Energy is low but your spirit seems to be getting power from somewhere. At times, it feels that it is almost outside of your own sphere. When tackling what is seen as a tedious task, you may not be aware that you are building something for the future, but there is much going on that will affect your future to a large extent.

SINGSONG: Researchers found brain activity in the birds’ sleep was similar to when they sing.

Trivia from around the world *** The name for the country Norway has its origins in an earlier name Nordweg, which means the Northern Way. *** Indonesia is one of a handful of countries dubbed ‘megadiverse’ due to the vast amount of different animals and plants there.

*** Suriname in South America is the only territory outside of Europe where the majority of people speak Dutch. *** The Basilica of Our Lady of Peace of Yamoussoukro in the Ivory Coast is the largest church in the world. It covers an area of around 30,000 square metres.

*** Although alcoholic drinks are banned in Saudi Arabia, there is said to be a cottage industry of amateur beer and wine making among the expatriate community there. *** Baldwin Street in Dunedin in New Zealand is the world’s steepest street. It has a 38 per cent grade at its steepest part.

DID YOU KNOW? Songbirds rehearse their melodies by singing in their sleep, according to a study. Researchers examined the electrical brain activity of zebra finches and found they dream about singing possibly to help them rehearse their repertoire. Scientists working on the study said the findings could help us learn more about the role of sleep in learning and how people pick up languages.

For some time, things on the romantic front have been confusing, to say the least. There are decisions that someone has to make that affect you seriously. Romantically and emotionally, things come to a head but don’t let the wind of change blow away all that you have achieved. Don’t begin to doubt yourself or others will, too.

ARIES (March 21 - April 20) You may well feel that your business life is not going as well as you would have hoped this week. They do say that you can’t have everything right at once. This is a good time to enjoy the company of others and make your love life buzz.

There is something of the rebel in you this week. Even you don’t fully understand the changes taking place. You will resist any attempt to stop from expressing yourself freely. Although you prefer a peaceful time, it may be necessary to remind someone of your rights.

Because you are about to enter an active phase, it would be best to keep things as straightforward and organised as possible. Those around you may be less than exciting at the moment, so keep the interest going with joint activities and accepting interesting invitations.

CANCER (June 22 - July 23)




Thursday July 05









Have you been a bit of a couch potato recently? Spend some of this week working towards a healthy mind in a healthy body. Running yourself ragged should certainly be avoided. Seek expert advice now about a problem that just won’t go away. It will, but only with a lot of effort. Although you prefer to share your activities, this is one area that you need to concentrate on fully, so go for it alone to begin with.

LEO (July 24 - August 23) Arm yourself with plenty of information about what is going on in your life at the moment. Those close might expect you to lead the way on an important matter. You need to trust your instincts more and have confidence. Think in the long term. Those who are not considered important now could be so in the future. As you prefer being in charge, this should not seem unnatural to you.

VIRGO (August 24 - September 23) Although you feel like going it alone at the moment, you would do well to involve someone close in your project or exercise. There is room for improvement in both your life and your health but it can be more enjoyable if shared. Expect surprises in your love life and you will not be surprised.

LIBRA (September 24 - October 23) It could be that you are feeling a little below par at the moment. You may assume it is because of a recent emotional upset, but it is unlikely to be quite that simple. Spend a bit of time and money on yourself for a change. Develop your talents in the realms of writing, painting and music. This need not take a large amount of time. Start with one simple project.

SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22) Despite pulling out all the stops when it comes to a certain person or project, your charm may not be working as well as usual this week. It is still a fine time to beaver on quietly in the background. A few emotional fireworks make you sit up and take notice, but try to be openminded.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23 - December 21) Get some rest and peace because, if you let yourself get too tired, your temper could suffer. When it comes to business get it over with so that you can spend extra time on your social life. Something important is round the corner.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 20) Sometimes you shuffle things around to survive difficult times. The energy that this uses means that realising a dream this week could mean difficult choices to be made. Your need to be settled makes you impatient.

Time for a hip-op? IF you’re experiencing pain in your hip due to an injury or arthritis, you understand the affect that it has on your everyday life. When arthritis or injuries are severe, many times your only option is to have a hip joint replacement. The hip is a ball-andsocket joint and is one of the largest joints in the body. It’s made up of the acetabulum which is the part of the pelvis bone that forms the socket and the femoral head which is the upper end of the femur that forms the ball. The surfaces of the balland-socket are coated with articular cartilage that provides cushioning for the joint as it moves. The synovial membrane, the tissue that surrounds the hip, creates fluid that lubricates the cartilage to reduce friction during movement.

PAIN RELIEF: A hip replacement is often the only option.

In a damaged hip, the articular cartilage becomes worn down so that the ends of the bones rub against each other without any form of cushioning. This causes a great deal of pain for the patient. There are many dis-

eases and conditions that can cause a hip injury severe enough to warrant a hip replacement. Arthritis can cause the synovial fluid to become inflamed and results in cartilage wearing away too. If you’re dealing with se-

Don’t nod off!

WE hope you can get to the end of this article without yawning .... To yawn is an almost impossible feeling to resist and control, and yet some of the

world’s top scientists are still uncertain of the biological reasons for it. In the past, there have been many theories as to why we yawn, and indeed go back as

far as Hippocrates in 400BC who believed that yawning actually removed bad air from someone’s lungs before a fever. Many centuries later - in the 1600’s and 1700’s - medical professionals thought yawning increased the amount of oxygen in the blood, blood pressure, heart rate and the actual flow of blood itself. In more recent times, the consensus has moved toward the idea that when somebody yawns, the brain cools down. Therefore, if the air temperature and indeed the temperature of the brain itself rises, the episodes of yawning increase.

vere hip pain and stiffness that persists even when at rest, you may need to undergo a hip joint replacement. This surgery will relieve your pain and help you return to the activities you enjoy most.



Recall for certain blood pressure drugs A PRESCRIPTION drug recall is currently underway across Europe following emerging concerns about drugs produced in China. Impurities have been found in the manufacturing process of the active substance valsartan. The facility where the issue was identified supplies this active substance to other drug manufacturers. The impurity (N-nitrosodimethylamine), which may have carcinogenic potential, was the result o f a c h a n g e i n t h e f a c i l i t y ’s m a n u f a c t u r i n g process. This active substance is used in a number of medicines marketed in Europe to treat high blood pressure and heart conditions. The European Medicines Agency and other EU regulators are working together to investigate the extent of the issue and any possible impact for patients. Dr Sam Atkinson, MHRA’s Director of the Inspection, Enforcement and Standards Division said: “People taking valsartan medication affected by this recall are advised to not stop taking their medication, but to speak to their doctor or healthcare professional who can advise on alternative treatment.”

10 things NOT to do if you have Achilles Tendonitis OR any other tendon issue in your hips, knees or ankles for that matter! Tendons attach muscles to bones, they most resemble a rope - lots of strands altogether. So they can fray. • Rest completely Medicine has moved on! Now we know that if you stop moving . . . you rarely get going again. So DON’T STOP! Get a properly managed exercise programme and get out there. • Get passive treatment All that lovely rubbing and fancy machines do help reduce pain temporarily, but see properly managed exercise programme is the only way. • Get injections Quite simply - there is no proof that they work. And steroid injections in any form actually break down the cords in the tendon making it fray faster.

By Estelle Mitchell • Ignore pain Pain is your body’s way of telling you to stop. So if it hurts, you’ve gone too far and need to back off. • Stretch your tendon Would you pull harder on a frayed rope? Nope. So don’t do this to your tendon either. Get some of that lovely passive therapy to stretch the muscles instead. • Massage your tendon Leave that frayed rope alone! All you are doing is making it worse! If you want a nice rub focus on the MUSCLE. • Worry about your scans Did you have a picture of your tendon before it hurt? Or

the tendon on the other leg? Then how do you know it didn’t look like that already? Scary words like ‘degeneration’ and ‘tears’ can be frightening. Tendons can take a lot of load even if they are a bit frayed. But they do need proper management as they don’t heal quite like other tissues in the body. • Worry about rupture People who rupture their tendon usually didn’t have pain beforehand. • Take short cuts Tendons have a rubbish blood supply so are slow to heal. It takes time and effort to get a good result. BUT work hard, it will get back to normal. • Not understanding how the tendon works Understanding how the tendons work (and not confusing them with the muscles they are attached to!) means you know when to start and when to stop and what to do.

FRESH AIR: Major study findings probably surprise nobody.

Healthy outdoor lifestyle ANYONE living in Spain will probably be among the first to agree with the following statement ... ‘spending time outside is good for you.’ This has also been backed up by a major study undertaken from almost 300 million people who were analysed as part of a review into the supposed benefits of nature. The researchers found that an outside lifestyle can dramatically cut the risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stress and high blood pressure. Those behind the research - which has taken

place over a number of years - hope that the discoveries will encourage doctors to recommend patients spend more of their time in green and open spaces. Data was studied by the University of East Anglia from 20 countries around the world, including the UK, to come up with their one sentence conclusion. C a o i m h e Tw o h i g - B e n nett, a PhD student and lead author of the study, admitted they are unsure what causes the benefits found. She said: “Spending time in nature certainly makes us feel healthier, but until now

the impact on our long-term well-being hasn’t been fully understood. “It reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, premature death and preterm birth, and increases sleep duration.” M i s s Tw o h i g - B e n n e t t added: “We hope that this research will inspire people to get outside more and feel the health benefits for themselves. Hopefully our results will encourage policymakers and town planners to invest in the creation, regeneration, and maintenance of parks and green spaces.”

Update on food, drink, entertainments, what’s on and weekly happenings



The sound of Soca hits the Costa del Sol by John Smith AS the summer arrives, so do some of the special guest artists at JoysLive, the premier night spot on the front line of Puerto Banus. Joining the superb regular acts including Paul (Mr Piano) Maxwel for a short visit from next Tuesday to the following Sunday is a Soca Songbird from the Caribbean nation of Trinidad and Tobago, Natalyah Wohler. This singer, songwriter and pianist was born in Trinidad, grew up in Switzerland and studied music in the UK, so she brings a wide range of knowledge and experience to her performance. Trinidad is known as the first home of calypso and has a fascinating history of Carnival and with a heritage like this, Natalyah brings a completely new sound to Puerto Banus; if it’s possible to be cool and hot at the same time, this

performer achieves it! Soca music is a genre of Caribbean music that originated in Trinidad and Tobago in the early 1970’s in an effort to revitalise traditional calypso which was being marginalised by the rise in popularity of reggae, soul and funk.

Lord Shorty, the godfather of soca, experimented with fusing calypso and elements of Indo-Caribbean music for nearly a decade before unleashing the ‘soul of calypso,’ or soca music. The combination of calypso and Indian instruments (dholak, tabla, dhantal) is called chutney soca. At the age of 12 Natalyah wrote and produced her first songs. When she was 18 she joined a professional cover band and at 19 she was also lead singer in her own band. Thereafter Natalyah studied at the University of Arts and Music in Zurich and continued her studies in England. She graduated with a

Natalyah Wohler in Carnival mood and ready to entertain. bachelor in vocals and performance. Since then Natalyah has played hundreds of gigs internationally and now intends to introduce her brand of music to the audience in Marbella and Banus who will have the opportunity to hear some of the 32 numbers that she has recorded to date plus perhaps a number of long time favourites performed in her own inimitable style..

Don’t forget that JoysLive is open for drinks during the day and then as the evening draws on, some of the best local musicians and singers arrive to entertain until the ‘wee small hours’ and what’s more there is no entrance fee. Find out more about what is on every night by visiting

Eat Well

to Live Well by Andrew Harding LAST week I talked about diets at length, so could only include a simple recipe. This week, there will be little discussion and more recipes! When I cook I like a beer, glass of wine or this twist on a gin and tonic! • Gin and Chilli Tonic Serves 1 3 whole ice cubes 1 measure gin 1 slice lemon 1 whole red birds eye chilli pepper, sliced in 1/2 lengthways and deseeded 4 measures tonic water Place in a Highball glass in this sequence and then enjoy. Tip: Wear rubber gloves when preparing the chilli pepper. • Seared and Roasted Beef with a Pickled Walnut Sauce Serves 4 1 kg whole fillet steak 1 tablespoon black peppercorns,


Seared and roasted beef ground 1 tablespoon butter 500ml beef stock 6 whole pickled walnuts, chopped 2 tablespoons juice of pickled walnuts Coat the fillet steak in the ground black pepper and saute in the butter on all sides to seal. then the outside is cooked, place in the oven pre-heated to 200 Celsius (fan oven) 220 Celsius (conventional oven) and cook to personal preference. I would recommend buying a meat thermometer, which for safety’s sake is necessary to prevent food poisoning from undercooked pork, chicken and turkey. The thermometer is inserted with the tip in the middle of the steak and should read as follows: Rare: 52 Celsius Medium Rare: 57 Celsius Medium: 63 Celsius

Medium Well: 66 Celsius Well: 71 Celsius Place the beef stock, pickled walnuts and the walnut juice in a frying pan, bring to the boil and reduce in volume to one third. Serve Tip: Using a saucepan to reduce the sauce will take much longer than using a frying pan. • Mushrooms with Garlic Serves 4 1 tablespoon olive oil 4 whole garlic cloves, skinned and chopped 350 grams mushrooms, coarsely chopped 1 teaspoon black peppercorns, ground Salt to taste Place olive oil in a frying pan and saute garlic until transparent, remove garlic and reserve. Add mushrooms to the pan and saute for three or four minutes so they are still firm. Add the reserved garlic, season and serve. Tip: There are many varieties of mushrooms, the normal white supermarket ones can be slightly bland. Wild mushrooms are much better.

THE NEXT BEST THING: The Flaming Shakers.

All their loving YOU can’t see the Beatles any more but many critics believe that the Flaming Shakers, a dedicated tribute band from Barcelona are the next best thing. They have studied films of the band as well as dissected each of their numbers in order to ensure that they can accurately recreate the legendary sound of the Liverpool band in concert. The Flaming Shakers cover almost all of the repertoire of The Beatles, from their greatest

hits, to the rarer and lesser known numbers, but they do recreate the tunes that brought Beatlemania so audiences will always enjoy and recognise the bulk of the show. With a set list of more than 250 songs they have been regulars at various International Beatle Weeks in Liverpool and have even played with Pete Best who was the drummer before Sir Ringo. This concert which will be held at the Benalmadena Auditorium on Friday July 27

promises a selection of costume changes and time passages, throughout the different periods and styles of the band. Here is a chance to relive the sounds of the Fab4 and because of the ever-changing set list, each concert becomes a unique and unforgettable experience. There are a number of different tribute bands playing all over the world but if you only get to see one, then this is the band to see as they spend the next three months touring around Spain and the Balearics.

Prepare for next winter with Neater Heater SUMMER may seem an odd time to think about next winter, but it makes good sense. Especially to those expats who would like to use their Spanish holiday homes all year round, rather than just for the summer. We also urge new owners, who have just moved to Spain this y e a r, t o c o n s i d e r t h e i r w i n t e r heating. All fuel costs are rising steadily and it pays to make sure that whichever system you decide upon is efficient and economical. Remember: efficient means it does the job and economical means it’s cheap to run. Many systems are one or the other, but Neater Heaters are both. Neater Heaters are made in N o r w a y, w h e r e t h e y b e n e f i t from Scandinavian styling and modern, state-of-the-art, design and materials. Whether wallmounted or free-standing, you

GRAEME TYRRELL THE Mediterranean climate allows the use in the landscape of many plants that in northern Europe can only be used as indoor plants. One of them is London Pride (Crassula multicava). It is a wonderful, easy to grow, self spreading succulent. I use it as a ground cover around taller bushes and trees. It grows quickly when planted in autumn and spreads quickly with the cooler weather and moist soil in winter. In spring it has a profusion of small, very fine white to pink flowers on long stems that look very attractive rising high above the leaves. In summer it tolerates the heat very well with minimal watering requirements. Its advantages are that it covers the soil with attractive foliage with minimal maintenance. It is not invasive as it is so easy to remove from places that you do not want them to spread to. This can be a disadvantage if you have animals in the garden that scratch or dig as the plants can be quickly damaged.

have the confidence that these heaters will be providing a more cost-effective, efficient heat output than any of their rivals. Their Adax standard panel h e a t e r o ff e r s t h e c u s t o m e r a cheaper option to the stylish Beha heater, without compromising on the running efficiency and reliability that we have come to associate with Norwegian systems. Neater Heater can also offer the stylish Neo range for people with a more colourful outlook on life. At the moment the customer can choose to have their Neo heaters in one of four colours: white; black; silver and red. “By offering the Adax range, as well as the Beha range, we believe that we have all bases covered when it comes to electric convector heating,” explains To n y, “ c u s t o m e r s c a n n o w browse our website, or visit one

London Pride A visitor to my garden, who is a professional gardener, recognised the succulent and was fascinated to see how well it had established all around the shrub beds of my terrace. He had only known it as an indoor plant. It is a great pot plant as it is so hardy. It will proliferate with even poorer soil mixes for years and is usually tolerant of irregular watering. In northern Europe it is a popular pot plant but most regions are too cold to grow it as a landscape plant in an open garden. The London Pride originates from Africa. In the Mediterranean garden it will grow so easily. Pieces can be broken off established plants and planted wherever you want more to grow. They also seed prolifically and so renew themselves in the garden and self spread in this way. The Crassula family of succulents, which London Pride belongs to, includes Jade plants and the Silver Dollar plant that are also more commonly grown in containers. I also grow these as landscape fea-

tures in the garden. The garden needs to have good drainage so it is necessary to have compost and you can even add fine stones to ensure that the soil does not get water-

logged in wet weather or when watering. They do not tolerate wet feet for long. They are shallow rooted so a good mulch of compost can be sufficient to grow London Pride

We know the ones you will probably choose, we made the same choice ourselves many years ago.”

successfully in the garden without having to cultivate deeply in established shrub beds. You only need to water them when you see the leaves are becoming thin and perhaps wrinkled. They will normally recover quickly and swell up again to store the water that enables them to survive long periods without additional watering.

Adventures in Africa ONE of the best perks about living in Spain, or visiting there often, are the amazing travel opportunities to exotic destinations. Madrid, Barcelona, Galicia, Granada, Ibiza, Portugal and France are all completely different from one another yet right on your doorstep. But what about Africa? A quick glance on the map tells you that a vast continent is just a sail away, or even a swim if you’re fit enough. But travelling there for the first time can be quite a daunting prospect, especially with visas, vaccinations and language issues. Enter the Spanish enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla. Just as the UK has maintained Gibraltar, Spain has its own overseas territories, both claimed by Morocco. Ceuta is an old Spanish penal colony with a fascinating history, while Melilla has been under the Spanish flag for more than 500 years. Both are excellent travel destinations in their own right and, by travelling to Africa, you can certainly tick off the ‘something different’ box. Ceuta and Melilla are not in the same region. Ceuta is near the Moroccan port of Tangier, about a six-hour drive from Melilla to the east. Ceuta doesn’t have its own airport but you can fly from Malaga by helicopter if you’re feeling adventurous. Most people opt for the

CEUTA: Near Morocco.

MELILLA: Less touristy. fast ferries from Algeciras which run several times a day and take just 45 minutes. Melilla is less touristy but does have its own airport with flights arriving from Malaga, Madrid, Almeria, Granada, Valencia and Barcelona. A more leisurely option for those

who don’t get sea sick are ferries from Malaga, Almeria and Motril, which take from three to seven hours. Which city you choose for your North African adventure depends on what you’re looking for. Ceuta is a perfect destination for

those interesting in exploring beyond the border and seeing real Morocco. After all, having gone all the way, it would be a shame not to the visit the bustling medinas of Tangier, just a short bus ride away. Entering Ceuta from Morocco will be a genuinely eye-popping experience as you see first hand the many challenges faced by border police. If that discourages you, worry not, Ceuta has some the best duty free shopping in Spain courtesy of its autonomous status! Melilla on the other hand is much more interesting as a tourist destination in and of itself. Walking tours of the old city and its many museums present a fascinating insight into the region’s maritime history. You can explore the legendary Caves of the Convent, relax at the beach, or go sailing or fishing in the glorious blue waters. The city will have a familiar vibe for Spanish residents, flush with tapas bars, flamenco music and an abundance of tourists from the mainland. A perfect easing in to your African adventure.


MOST pet dogs will guard their territory by barking at intruders. Problems arise when large, aggressive dogs are kept in a fenced area to protect commercial property. Often this happens without the owner or dog having had any sort of training. In fact, no responsible trainer would undertake to train a guard dog unless absolutely sure that the handle r wa s a l so a r es p o n s ib le person, if not a member of the services who, of course, have their own trainers. The reason is that aggression, once roused, is most difficult to revers e . B e wa r y o f p u ttin g u p such signs as ‘Beware of the Dog’ because this is an admission that you have an aggressive or dangerous dog. The sign ‘Guard Dog’ is also an indication that you have a dog trained to guard and, possibly, to injure. It’s b e st t o p u t u p a s ig n th at

WITH Britain experiencing a heatwave, and summer well under way here in Spain, don’t forget to be attentive to your pet’s needs. You may think that looking after your pet in hot weather is common sense, but all too often people forget the basics. Never leave your pet in the car, not even for just a few minutes. Even if you park in the shade or leave the window slightly open, cars can become furnaces on sunny days. RSPCA guidelines state an outside temperature of 22C can create a temperature inside the car of 47C. The same goes for a conservatory or enclosed terrace. If youv’e space at home, keep one room cooler. Make sure your pet has plenty of water in more one than location in the house.

says simply ‘Dog.’ Nobody can complain about that. The chances are a burglar will come in through th e b ac k en tran ce a nyw a y a nd won’t even see the sign, but he will probably hear the dog barking.

for not having taken the dog as a puppy t o dog t r ai ni ng cl asses where it can socialise with other dogs and people.

The answer with an older, unsocialised dog that growls is to find a behavi our i st t o com e t o t he house to deal with the problem. There is no substitute for ‘hands on’ work by a specialist. Ther e ar e, however, a f ew things which should be done to reduce the dog’s dominant attitude. Somebody emailed me about his dominant dog that growled whenever any adul t cam e i nt o t he house, though it did tolerate childr en. Two baby gr andchi l dr en were to visit during the summer and he did not want them scared by the dog’s growling. “Please help,” he begged. I told him his dog would regard the babies as little dogs entering his territory - dogs that would receive more attention than him. The result would inevitably create jealousy and could be potentially dangerous. The answer was simple: ‘Put the dog into kennels while the babies are with you.’ Better a dog in kennels than a baby in hospital.

Can you pet-sit Nuka this August? NUKA needs a dog-sitter in August, can you help? Nuka is a labradoodle who loves walking in the Chiltern Hills near her home. Her owners are attending a wedding abroad this summer and need a dog-sitter for her while they are away. They live in a charming English village with stunning scenery and near a train to London. Would you be interested in being this pet-sitter? Can you help Nuka’s owners? Dog-sitters give peace of mind. Peter, Nuka’s owner, says they prefer having live-in sitters to care for their pets in their own home. Nuka is very gentle, easy going and fairly easy to care for, with walks straight into stunning scenery directly out of the front door of the house. Peter and his

Eco friendly Minis

EMISSIONS: Reduction.

NUMEROUS new features in the area of drive-technology enhance driving fun as well as reducing emissions in the current Mini models as from summer 2018. Emission control in all petrol-engine variants of the Mini three-door, Mini fivedoor and Mini Convertible, as well as the Mini Clubman and Mini Countryman, will include a particulate filter as

from this month. This demonstrates how Mini consistently continues to pursue the optimisation of emissions in its current models. The diesel engine variants of the Mini Clubman and Mini Countryman have met the Euro 6d-TEMP standard since March of this year, and their emission control system includes not just a diesel particulate filter and an NOx storage catalytic converter, but also an SCR catalytic converter which features a special urea injection (AdBlue) for highly effective reduction of nitrogen oxide emissions. In addition, the relevant model variants of the Mini Clubman and Mini Countryman will be fitted with enhanced petrol engines as from now too. Here, optimised Mini TwinPower Turbo Technology espe-

Nano no-no RUMOURS are rife that production of the Tata Motors model called the Nano are about to cease. Manufacturing of the Indian-made car have slumped compared to June 2017 when 275 units came off the production line. Twelve months later, that number had dropped to one. Sales were just as poor with just three Tato Nanos being driven away from the forecourt in June 2018.

F nothing else, the CCCA is always pushing the envelope, trying to do things that are a bit different for their members. Film nights, parties, Balls, last month a fashion show and a cabaret performance, and now, a Formula 1 forum with seriously top F1 people involved! The next CCCA Clubnight will be the first Tuesday in August at Treetops restaurante in El Chaparral Golf and will feature a ‘Forum’ style F1 evening before dinner. Former Ferrari race engineer to Michael Schumacher, SKY TV commentator, and latterly Williams Martini F1 Chief Technical Officer, Pat Symonds, will give a short talk on the state of Formula 1 as it is now. Pat was responsible for the restructuring of the Williams GP team in 2014 and 2015 and was a central figure with Benetton and then Renault when Fernando Alonso and Renault won back-to-back constructors and drivers world titles in 2005 and 2006.. Currently, Pat is still heavily involved with F1, not only working with Sky F1 but also working with Ross Brawn drafting the new regulations for F1 that will come in for 2021. Also on the team will be CCCA member and ex-McLaren team boss, Jo Ramirez, who will answer questions Forum style from the floor. The evening will be hosted by CCCA Presidente and former rally driver, Ian Giles, and will be open to non-members who will have to pay only a €10 entrance fee. For Formula 1 fans, it’s a must to get a real inside view on F1 as it is now and as it will be in the future. I’m sure most readers will have enjoyed the terrific scrap that went on at the British GP at Silverstone this month where Lewis Hamilton fought valiantly to recover from a first lap incident that relegated him to last place. His recovery drive to finish in second place behind the Ferrari of Sebastian Vettel was an inspiration and it will be interesting to hear what Pat and

from Venta Platero, just to the east of Coin. Around 40 cars set off in the hot sunshine to head towards the lakes of El Chorro. Coffee and refreshments were available in the village alongside the lake before cars headed east and then north, skirting the lakes in their entirety, before crossing the dam and heading towards Campillos. From here, cars turned south east to head for a welcome beer, or Cola (!) and a tapa at Bar La Herradura in Zalea. The route then headed along the new road to pass by Coin and Alhaurin and then turning to Mijas Pueblo, enjoying the stunning views from that road. Lunch was arranged at the Valparaiso restaurant which was indeed excellent and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Staff here were attentive and very professional, producing excellent food and a marvellous ambience, even arranging a room for those so wishing to watch World Cup football after lunch!

The next event on the calendar is the JEC Car Run and lunch on July 21 which will be organised by Ian Giles. All Jaguar owners are welcome, any age, any model. Details have yet to be finalised. On July 26 there will be a Concours D’Elegance at the Magna Cafe in Marbella. This is not a CCCA event, but will be supported by the Club who are providing a number of entries including a beautiful early 1960’s Rolls Royce Cloud convertible, a stunning Jaguar XK150 and a 1963 Jaguar Mk.2. Other entries are pending and there will be a lot of supercars exhibited too.

Enrique steps up for his country EX-BARCELONA and Roma coach Luis Enrique has been appointed as Spain manager on a two-year contract. The 48-year-old former Spain midfielder replaces Fernando Hierro, who stepped down as interim boss on Sunday. Hierro - who is not returning to his role as sporting director was placed in temporary charge of the team after Julen Lopetegui was sacked on the eve of the World Cup. Enrique has been out of management since leaving the Nou Camp last June. Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) president Luis Rubiales said: “The decision was unanimous. I like his commitment and he has turned down better-paid jobs in order to

The RFEF also announced that Jose Francisco Molina, a former Spain goalkeeper, had been brought in as sporting director. Spain endured a World Cup tournament to forget, drawing against Portugal and Morocco in between a narrow victory over Iran. They were then eliminated at the hands of Russia in the last 16, and Enrique, who knows a number of the squad from his Barcelona days, will be expected to turn their fortunes around.

FERRARI’S Sebastian Vettel passed the Mercedes of Valtteri Bottas to win a British Grand Prix full of action, as Lewis Hamilton fought up from the back of the field to take second. Hamilton drove superbly to recover from a first-lap collision with Vettel’s teammate Kimi Raikkonen, and the result hinged on two late safety cars, when world champion Hamilton’s Mercedes team took a strategic gamble. Unlike rivals Ferrari and Red Bull, Mercedes chose not to pit both their drivers for fresh tyres at the first safety car intervention. The decision promoted Bottas, who had run second from the start, to the lead ahead of Vettel, while Hamilton was propelled two places up to third. It was a gamble that paid off for the Briton - winning him crucial points in his title fight with Vettel and limiting the damage that could have been caused after the first lap. However, it didn’t work for Bottas, whose tyres ran out and was passed by Vettel, Hamilton

RUSSELL KNOX intends to ‘keep the hammer down’ on home soil over the next two weeks in a bid to secure a spot in Europe’s team for the Ryder Cup. The Scot holed two remarkable 40-foot putts to beat New Zealander Ryan Fox in a play-off to win the Irish Open. It catapulted him to eighth in the European Ryder Cup standings before this week’s Scottish Open and the Open Championship at Carnoustie next week. “This is a great start but it’s not good enough,” said Knox. “I need to hammer down and I would love to win the Scottish Open, and to be playing in the Open at Carnoustie, I’m very happy.” US-based Knox was controversially overlooked for a Ryder Cup wildcard in 2016 by then European captain Darren Clarke, despite being ranked higher than seven members of the team who eventually lost. After finishing 12th in the recent US Open, Knox started a month-long sojourn in Europe last week by finishing tied for second at the French Open. That lifted the 33-year-old to 87th in the world rankings, and he is now up to 49 after his stunning victory at Ballyliffin in County Donegal.

FRANCE are in the final of the World Cup after edging past European neighbours Belgium in the semi-final in St Petersburg. Defender Samuel Umtiti scored the winning goal for the 1998 champions in the second half, a powerful h e a d e r f r o m A n t o i n e ’s Griezmann’s corner. Didier Deschamp’s side

were on the back foot for large periods of the game, but emerged victorious in a spirited effort. Belgium came through t h e q u a r t e r- f i n a l s b y i m pressively beating Brazil, but came up against another strong performance by French goalkeeper Hugo Loris. He not only punched

away a powerful drive from Alex Witsel, but was at full stretch to deny Toby Alderweireld’s curler into the corner. Coach Didier Dechamps was captain of the France s i d e t h a t w o n t h e Wo r l d Cup for the first and only time in their history in Paris in 1998, a 3-0 win over Brazil.

England, batting first, could manage only 87 runs from the final 10 overs to post 198-8 in Bristol, despite Jason Roy’s blistering 67 from 31 balls. Rohit shared an 89 run stand with Virat Kohli and accelerated in the final overs to put India in control. He and Hardik Pandya closed out the match with eight balls to spare and it was the highest run chase by any team against England in an international T20.

FIGHTING TALK: Brailsford pulled no punches in a press conference.

Brailsford slams brakes on Lappartient TEAM SKY cycling boss Sir Dave Brailsford has said that UCI president David Lappartient needs to learn what his ‘responsibilities’ are, while accusing the Frenchman of having a ‘nationalistic view.’ For his part, Lappartient had commented that Team Sky’s wealth allowed them to fight Chris Froome’s asthma drug case in a way other teams could not have done. Cycling’s governing body dropped the case against Froome last week and Brailsford said: “He (Lappartient) has still got the local French mayor mentality, maybe.”

Lappartient, 45, is the mayor of the French commune Sarzeau, where stage four of this year’s Tour de France took place. “If you want to be the president of an international federation, protect everyone in that international community, don’t take a French angle, or a nationalistic view,” added Brailsford. “The quicker he can learn his responsibilities, the better it will be for everyone.” When asked if Team Sky would release the evidence used in Froome’s case, Brailsford said it was up to the UCI and Wada to publish the details.

Joshua swings into Wembley UNIFIED heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua will return to Wembley stadium for his next two fights. Joshua, 28, has signed a two-fight deal to compete at the national stadium on September 22 and April 13, 2019. The WBA, IBF and WBO champion beat Wladimir Klitschko there in April 2017 but has since

fought twice at Cardiff ’s Principality Stadium. “Being north London born and raised, it is in my blood,” said Joshua. “The opportunity to fight in such an iconic stadium is normally a oncein-a-career opportunity, so to be given the chance to fight there again is amazing.” His opponent on September 22 will be con-

firmed next week but is e x p e c t e d t o b e R u s s i a ’s Alexander Povetkin, the W B A’s m a n d a t o r y c h a l lenger. Boxing fans around the world want to see Joshua up against the unorthodox but explosively powerful American hitter Deontay Wilder (WBC world champion), and that fight for all four belts is expected to happen next April.
