‘Right to die’ man is dead
By JOHN COLES

Agony . . . ‘locked-in’ Tony

TRAGIC “locked-in” victim Tony Nicklinson died yesterday — after refusing food since he lost a legal battle to allow him to end his life. Stroke victim Tony, 58, was devastated by last week’s High Court defeat. He died of pneumonia at home in Melksham, Wilts, with his family by his side. Police are not investigating. Wife Jane said: “I’ve lost the love of my life, but he suffers no more.”

PATIENT deaths from the MRSA superbug have dropped to their lowest level in 15 years, figures revealed yesterday. England and Wales had 364 fatal cases last year — down from a peak of 1,652 in 2006. The staggering drop follows a Sun-backed campaign to get medics to wash their hands. Deaths from MRSA fell by a quarter between 2010 and 2011, from 485 to 364, the Office for National Statistics said. There were 2,053 deaths from the C.diff

that personally.” But Berlin politicians vowed to block the move, dubbing it “a third bailout”. Their refusal would force bankrupt Greece into default — spelling curtains for its membership of the single currency. Mr Cameron and Mr Obama agreed it was “good news” the European Central Bank was “standing firmly behind the euro”.

ENERGY BILLS SOAR BYgiant’s 9% hike £119 Rivals will follow power

Pleaover housing red tape

New home . . shortage

BRITS face a winter of soaring power bills after an inflationbusting £119 rise from Scottish & Southern Energy.
SSE — Britain’s second biggest energy giant — said it was upping gas and electricity prices by nine per cent from October 15.

MINISTERS were urged last night to do more to get kids in work as the number of “Neets” soared to 968,000. The figure for 16 to 24-year-olds “not in education, employment or training” is the highest in nine months. More training schemes are needed, said the Institute of Public Policy Research. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has again been named the world’s most powerful woman by Forbes magazine.

Neet toll goes up

The average SSE dual-fuel gas and electricity bill will soar from £1,235 to £1,354 a year. And 400,000 “low usage” customers

will be hit by a new £100 standing charge. The increase is the first by one of the “Big Six” suppliers this year and will hit almost EIGHT MILLION customers. SSE, which also trades as Swalec, Southern Electric and Atlantic, blamed rising

wholesale gas prices. But it said the biggest reason was a 30 per cent increase in “green” charges levied by the Government. Boss Ian Marchant said: “We are unable to keep prices at their current levels beyond this autumn.” The move came as regulator Ofgem said energy companies were making £40 per customer. Ministers sepa-

rately claimed power firms were creaming off profits by manipulating the market. Experts warned it was inevitable SSE’s rivals would follow suit. Only E.ON has pledged to freeze them until January. Mark Todd, director at Energyhelpline, told The Sun: “This is shocking. I hope others don’t follow but the track record suggests they all will.” Martin Lewis, creator of MoneySavingExpert.com, said: “If the energy companies bleat like sheep again and follow SSE in putting prices up, people who don’t act will need to choose between heating and eating this winter.”

THE Government faces a showdown with campaigners as a report today calls to strip the housing market of red tape. Ministers want a housing boom to get the economy back on track. They are backing top businessman Sir Adrian Montague’s report urging councils to be more “flexible” in building private rented homes. He says they should ignore requirements for affordable housing to encourage more private developers to invest. In return, councils should ensure new housing stays in the rented sector for 20 years. Housing Minister Grant Shapps said Sir Adrian’s Government-funded report offered a “blueprint” to help solve the housing shortage. Campaign group Shelter warned such a solution should not ignore those “struggling to get on the property ladder”.

Splash Harry . . . day after hotel fun
By PETE SAMSON, US Editor, and RYAN SABEY

One snap, taken on a mobile phone, shows him covering his tackle with his hands as a nude girl with suntan markings stands close behind him. In another Harry hugs a girl from behind while clutching a pool cue. Both are naked. The saucy photos were published by thousands of websites around the world — including those of respected news outlets. Typing “Prince Harry naked pictures” into Google came up with 90MILLION hits last night. But St James’s Palace sent legal letters to British newspapers urging editors not to use the snaps, saying publication would constitute an unjustified intrusion into the Prince’s privacy.

Harry stripped to his birthday suit during a boozy game of “strip pool” after he and his holiday pals picked up a group of girls and took them back to their Las Vegas hotel suite.

PRINCE Harry flew back to Britain yesterday amid a worldwide furore after pictures of him partying naked with a nude girl swept across the globe.

HOW WE ‘HEIR BRUSHED’ PIC

SUN man Harry Miller dropped everything to recreate the Prince’s pose — after the Palace asked us not to print the real Vegas snaps. Features picture editor Harry, 31, and intern Sophie Henderson, 21, were happy to strip. Looks like they made front page nudes...

What a difference a week makes
Sheepish . . worried Harry yesterday

A Royal source said Harry, an Army officer and Apache helicopter pilot, was just “letting off steam” before resuming his military career. He is due to be deployed in Afghanistan later this year. Army insiders said top brass had taken a “very dim view” of Harry’s shenanigans. But although he could get a stern ticking-off, he is unlikely to face disciplinary action as he was on a private holiday. The photos triggered a security storm as serious questions were asked of the 27-year-old Prince’s protection officers. There were fears the third in line to the throne could have been vulnerable to blackmail or attack, particularly as he had only just met the girls. But Met Police Commissioner Bernard Hogan-Howe effectively ruled out any disciplinary action against the guards. He said: “Royal protection officers are there to protect him

for security reasons. They are not there to regulate his life.” A sheepish-looking Harry, who enjoyed a five-day break in America, was seen hugging another girl an hour after the pictures went public. But she had a white dress on. He was spotted wearing a blue shirt and panama hat in the car park of trendy restaurant Gjelina, in the Venice area of Los Angeles. The Prince said his farewells to pals including the girl before jumping in a black Cadillac that took him to LA airport in a convoy for his flight to Britain. He would not comment on the photos and his six-strong security team made every effort to keep

revellers revealed: “The Prince and his gang started their night with dinner. They were then drinking in the hotel bar when they met the girls and invited them up to their room to carry on the party. “Everyone was drunk and they began playing a game of strip pool. Before long the Prince was naked. The girls couldn’t believe they were naked with Prince Harry. There was lots of fooling around and bear-hugging.” The friend added: “The girls were having fun and thought he was a nice guy. “But they could not believe someone hadn’t stopped things going so far. Everyone was so drunk and

the situation was so risky for him.” On Saturday Harry made a splash at the MGM hotel’s Wet Republic pool, arriving at 2pm and downing vodka and cranberry juice. He chatted up an eight-strong hen party from New York, who called him “very flirtatious”. On Sunday the Prince partied at the Encore hotel’s XS nightclub. At 3am he jumped into its pool in his jeans and challenged US Olympic gold medal-winning swimmer Ryan Lochte to a race. A fellow holidaymaker said: “He was going for it on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and into the early hours of Monday. It’s hard to work out when he slept.” Harry was driven to Los Angeles on Monday, staying there for 36 hours before his scheduled return to Britain. Only political blogger Guido Fawkes published the nude snaps in the UK, despite Clarence House confirming their authenticity. Guido wrote: “This situation illustrates the threat to a free press in Britain. This is the third in line to the throne and one of the biggest names in British public life. “Yet not one British newspaper is reporting the story with pictures. Nevertheless everyone will be searching online and will find them regardless.” p.samson@the-sun.co.uk

Harry, who represented the Queen with distinction at the closing ceremony of the Olympics, partied in Vegas with Eton pal Tom “Skippy” Inskip, 27, and mega-rich arms dealer’s son Arthur Landon, 30. Before setting off on the trip, Arthur posted a picture on his Facebook page of his “holiday suitcase” containing what friends who commented on the snap took to be a gas mask and a bong — commonly used to smoke marijuana.

LET’S face it, Prince Harry has been a naughty boy — but we still love him. As far as Sun readers go he is the most popular member of the Royal Family and that won’t change. But I would advise him to be careful — someone in that hotel room was a Judas. Even so, Prince Philip will this morning think, ‘That’s my boy’ when he reads of his antics — while the Queen will choke on her cornflakes.

IN the UK the Human Rights Act protects both the right to privacy and the right to freedom of expression. America has stronger protection for press freedom, meaning its websites are freer to print pictures like this. All countries have different laws, making it hard to police the internet. That’s why we have the strange situation where the photos are on the web, but can’t always be put in the paper.

PRINCESS Diana’s former bodyguard warned last night that Harry’s antics could put him at risk — and urged his Scotland Yard minders to control him. Ken Wharfe, 64, said of the nude snaps: “This time it was a camera — next time it might be a gun.” He suggested cops may be scared to tick off the fun-loving Royal. Ex-Met inspector Mr Wharfe said: “It’s hard to tell the Royal Family what

to do. But the one person who could have stopped Harry was his policeman. “I’d have told him it wasn’t a good idea to have those women in his room — and I’d have banned mobile phones at the door.” Dai Davies, the Met’s ex-head of royal protection, said Harry was probably a “nightmare” for his officers. He added: “I don’t envy their job, trying to keep him out of scrapes.”

Tears at verdict . . . Jane comforts Tony last week, and final message
By JOHN COLES and RYAN SABEY

By DAVINA HEHIR of Dignity in Dying
I MET Tony and Jane and followed his case closely, though the aim of our organisation differs slightly from Tony’s cause. He wasn’t dying, but felt that if a doctor was willing to help him die they should be able to do so without fear of prosecution. The way the laws stands now, they would be prosecuted for murder with an automatic life sentence. There needs to be greater flexibility to take into account cases like this. Tony was an extremely courageous and determined man and I have a lot of respect for him. His fight has opened up the debate and left a lasting legacy.

my View
NO one who followed the Nicklinson or Martin cases could fail to be moved by them. But the judges were right to conclude that the law on assisted suicide did not require further clarification as requested by Martin. They also rejected Mr Nicklinson’s request to introduce a new defence in murder cases of voluntary euthanasia. The current law exists to protect those who are sick, elderly, depressed or disabled from feeling obliged to end their lives. It protects those who have no voice against exploitation and coercion and acts as a powerful deterrent to would-be abusers. It doesn’t need changing.

Insult to injury
IT is barely a month since David Cameron stood in Afghanistan and pledged to shield wounded veterans from welfare cuts. He said Britain “respects and reveres” those who sacrifice themselves to keep us safe. So how does that noble-sounding sentiment tally with the decision to deny disabled Afghan hero Karl Boon a £54-a-week allowance? Karl lost his left leg below the knee to a Taliban rocket. But according to the Department of Work and Pensions he is “not disabled enough”. How many limbs must a soldier lose to satisfy the penpushers? Disability benefits were reformed to stop scroungers inventing a bad back or putting on a limp to get cash. If civil servants can’t tell the difference between a workshy faker and a man with massive war wounds then they are the ones unfit for employment. The scandalous treatment of Karl is not the Prime Minister’s fault. But after the empty rhetoric of his military covenant and savage defence cuts it will reinforce the public view that he talks a good game on the Armed Forces. Then fails to deliver.

SAYS

VICTIM’S CHALLENGE TO CONTROVERSIAL MP
GEORGE GALLOWAY has sparked outrage by suggesting date rape can be “bad sexual etiquette”. The Respect MP, right, was discussing the case of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, accused of sexual assault in Sweden. Also this week, in the US, politician Todd Akin claimed that sexual assaults rarely end in pregnancy. He later issued a grovelling apology. Last week we relaunched The Sun’s Stop Rape Now campaign, and here a 21-year-old date rape victim explains why views like those of Galloway and Akin are hugely damaging.

Vital issue

TRAGIC Tony Nicklinson, who was paralysed from the neck down, has finally found release from the existence he described as “a living nightmare”. Tony’s death from pneumonia comes days after the High Court rejected his plea for assisted suicide. But the question of whether those enduring such suffering should have the right to die is still undecided. MPs must now set aside time in Parliament to address one of the great moral questions of our age. The judges have urged them to do so. So has the Justice Secretary. They must stop ducking the issue.

Conned again

ENERGY giant SSE once again shows its contempt for the public. A few weeks ago it was prosecuted for mis-selling, a polite way of saying it conned consumers. Now it announces a nine per cent rise in bills, more then three times inflation. And what is energy regulator Ofgem going to do about it? Nothing. As usual.

Cue laughter

POOR old Prince Harry . . . snapped in the nude clutching his privates during a game of strip pool. His bodyguards face a reprimand for failing to keep him under control. Easier said than done. He looks like a handful.

He is a middle-aged man whose comments are outdated and could seriously affect upcoming trials, influence juries and discourage women from reporting sexual attacks. I challenge him to meet me — a victim of rape and someone who knew her attacker — to repeat what he said publicly to my face. I want to meet him and tell him what it’s like to be a victim. I wonder if he has the guts to do that. The majority of people raped in the UK know their attackers and what Mr Galloway has said could

GEORGE GALLOWAY is a member of Parliament and is now effectively telling the thousands of women who have been the victim of date rape that no such thing exists.

seriously impact on whether victims come forward. They’ll read his comments and think, “If a politician won’t believe me, who will?” He should hang his head in shame. He is a disgrace. To suggest an incident of rape is bad sexual etiquette is ridiculous. Mr Galloway’s comments have just taken the work done by anti-rape campaigners back into the Middle Ages.

Wrong

I fear for the women out there who are facing trials soon because their confidence will be shattered by his ridiculous statements. Julian Assange — who George Galloway was referring to — needs to stand trial to face these allegations. Rape is rape, and for Mr Galloway to imply there are degrees of that is wrong. The simple reality is that anyone accused of a crime

should face justice. Is Mr Galloway a lawyer now? Has he seen all the evidence? It is for the trial to decide whether Assange is guilty. Mr Galloway has sent the wrong message to women all around the country that if you are raped by someone you know then you should not expect justice. Thank God he doesn’t define rape. As an MP he should research the subject and know better. Rape is one of the most under-reported crimes in this country and Mr Galloway could worsen the situation. What if a woman was dateraped at the weekend and saw his comments and decided not to come forward because of what he said? I am angry and horrified. I want him to formally apologise and fully retract all his statements — and spend at least a day working with a rape charity.

Chrissie Chambers, 38, had repeatedly called police as she was terrorised by ex David Oakes, 50, as they fought for custody of Shania, two. In two years Chrissie of Braintree, Essex, made 16 emergency calls — yet each was treated “largely in isolation”, an Independent Police Complaints Commission report found. It said ex-bouncer Oakes, who was jailed for life, should have been arrested after he broke a court order to stop menacing Chrissie. And cops should have realised fear prevented her making fresh complaints against him. Her dad Ken Chambers said last night: “Police could have done more to prevent the deaths.” IPCC commissioner Rachel Cerfontyne blamed a systems failure. Essex Police Assistant Chief Constable Maurice Mason apologised, saying: “We owe it to Christine and Shania to learn everything we can from this.”

SYRIAN troops swept through two areas of Damascus yesterday carrying out house-to-house raids and killing at least 31 suspected rebels, activists said. Both districts were shelled before the troops — backed by more than 20 tanks — stormed in. The onslaught is part of a dramatic surge in fighting in the capital as the 17-month rebellion against President Bashar Assad’s rule gains strength. Assad’s forces are also fighting a major battle for control of the northern city of Aleppo, as well as smaller scale operations across Syria. Rapper LL Cool J — who plays a special agent in TV’s NCIS — nabbed a burglar at his Los Angeles home.

I’ve had enough . . . Zayn’s farewell

Twitter message to his fans

ONE Direction hunk Zayn Malik has dumped his FIVE MILLION Twitter followers — after being bombarded with abuse.
The so-called ‘Directioners’ went into meltdown after learning heart-throb Zayn was quitting because he was fed up with attacks from trolls.

COOL CAPTURE

And hundreds spent hours on the social networking forum pleading with the X Factor star to return. Zayn, 19, made his decision following the daily “useless opinions and hate” from fans jealous over his relationship with Perrie Edwards of girl group Little Mix. The couple, who have announced they plan to set up home together in London, have been dating on and off since meeting on the X Factor last year. They were seen with the 1D singer’s family after he took Perrie to

meet them to celebrate Muslim holiday Eid. His relationship with X Factor winner Perrie, 19, has been savaged by fans on Twitter. In his final message on the site, Zayn wrote: “The reason I don’t tweet as much as I used to, is because I’m sick of all the useless opinions and hate that I get daily goodbye twitter. “My fans that have something nice to say can tweet me on the

one direction account.” Shocked supporter VaynZayn wrote on Twitter: “I feel like Zayn’s just broken up with me. Our non-existent twitter relationship is over.” Fan Sophie Heslop, 16, from Newcastle upon Tyne, told The Sun she was sad Zayn had been forced off. She added: “I have been a huge fan of One Direction from the start since X Factor. “I have always followed the boys and praised them for their work and how much they inspire young

people. I think it’s Zayn’s personal choice whether to leave Twitter — but he should not be forced away because of a small minority of ‘fans’ sending him hate. “The majority want him back so much!” Celeb blogger Perez Hilton also became embroiled in the row after he tweeted suggesting Zayn’s decision was a sign of dark days ahead for the band. Outraged Zayn followers quickly rounded on Hilton over his claims. But upset fans of the boyband star could well be in for a short period of mourning as friends of Zayn suggested he could well be back as early as TODAY. One said: “Zayn was just fed up with getting abuse. “He tweets people and is a nice guy on Twitter so he just wanted to get away from the hassle. “But he knows it’s a good way of communicating with his fans so don’t be surprised if he’s back on there very soon.” c.robertson@the-sun.co.uk

FOOD LABEL U-TURN
TESCO is to label food for levels of fat, sugar and salt using the “traffic light” system — in a surprise U-turn. Britain’s biggest retailer has shunned the Government-backed scheme since it was launched in 2005. But the store chain will not bring in the green, amber and red labels, representing low, medium and high amounts, until at least 2014. Most other supermarkets already use traffic lights so customers can check for healthy products. The Children’s Food Campaign said: “It’s great news.” Tesco said it “listened to its customers”.

IN quite a lot of Muslim countries, when a rape takes place it is often the WOMAN who is charged with a criminal offence. The bearded mentals from the Middle Ages accuse the women under something called “proximity laws” – ie, because they were near some men, they were asking for it. Perhaps this is one reason why the MP George Galloway was so quick to dismiss the rape allegations levelled at the albino WikiLeaks weirdo Julian Assange. There are rumours that Galloway converted to Islam a few years ago. The Scottish Stalinist loon will not confirm or deny this. But he does not drink and he’s started thanking God profusely for lots of stuff. I bet he also, when at a wedding, avoids those mini pork-pies. George once got down on his hands and knees to be stroked on the head by Rula Lenska in the reality TV show Big Brother. I asked a Muslim academic what Allah would think of such behaviour and he replied: “He’d think George was a bit of a publicityseeking tw*t, but don’t quote me.”

GALL OF GEORGE

SOMETHING really has got to be done. Maybe it’s time to launch a campaign to revive the Great British Burglar. Because, as I’ve said before, so many of the thieves today are so staggeringly, magnificently stupid they’d have difficulty outwitting Dappy from N-Dubz. Take the Geordie halfwit Kier Ruffell. Kier, below, decided to burgle a house in South Shields. The woman house owner saw him and asked him who he was. What did you think Kier told her by way of reply? Yep, that’s

I’M BURGLAR ALARMED . . .

right, he told her his name. It’s so elementary, isn’t it? How did he think that was going to end up? A week or so back some imbecile was caught trying to steal those useless plastic display phones from a High Street shop. Moron, moron. I blame the teachers. Maybe competent thieving is something that Education Secretary Michael Gove could put on the national curriculum. It’s just getting embarrassing – no wonder all our best thieving jobs are taken by Romanians and Albanians.

THERE’S outrage that our electricity companies are pocketing £600million every year by “rigging” the market. These firms get compo money when they provide electricity but the national grid is full. But nobody is suggesting they have done anything illegal. They’re quite within their rights to screw the system – after all, why should they care that we pay extra? It’s no use the Government whining – the fault was in privatising these utilities in the first place. If we all owned them, that sort of stuff wouldn’t happen, would it? A JUDGE has decided it’s OK for a convicted paedophile to take a week’s holiday – at the family resort Center Parcs. Judge Charles Byers told former scoutmaster Stephen Daniell that he could go on his pre-booked holiday so long as he didn’t ask any kids if they wanted to see some puppies, or whatever it is paedophiles say these days. Daniell pleaded guilty to a whole bunch of offences including committing an act of gross indecency with a child and asking kids to perform weird acts while naked. Luckily, Center Parcs showed a bit more sense than Judge Byers and has now cancelled his reservation. Mr Daniell is presumably considering his options, which I would guess include EuroDisney.

The secret camera will be concealed in a plant pot near your house, or maybe fixed high to the wall of the big block opposite, or on a lamppost at the end of the road. But one way or another you can be sure: Someone is watching you. And better still — here’s the fun bit — you are paying for the privilege. It’s just been discovered that our local councils have authorised 9,600 secret spying missions in the past three years. This is allowed under the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act which was introduced by the last government. The maniacally paranoid New Labour administration brought it in to help fight the battle against jihadi Muslim nutjobs who might want to blow us up.

SOMEONE, somewhere, is watching you. Probably a pencil-necked idiot with breath that could stun a badger at 50 paces, hunched over a monitor in your local council offices, checking your every move.

If you are a jihadi Muslim nutjob who wants to blow us all up, then I’m glad you are being watched. But I am not aware of a single case of a potential terrorist being caught as a result of local councils using these new powers. Instead the powers have been used by councils to pursue their own weird vendettas against the very people who pay for their existence — ordinary local citizens.

Control
As all the civil liberties groups said at the time, the act will be abused by all and sundry and not a single terrorist will be caught. This is exactly what has happened. Now the councils use the act to justify snooping on you if you’re smoking a cigarette somewhere you probably shouldn’t. Or if your dog has fouled a

footpath. Or if you’ve put the wrong stuff in the rubbish bin, counter to the rules dreamed up by the councils. This is the thing about councils — they are run by control freaks who want more and more power to poke their long noses in and to keep you on what they think is the straight and narrow. You cannot give them powers to investigate possible terrorists and expect them to abide by that. They will use those powers for everything they possibly can and then send you the bill. One council even used the act to make sure that local escort agencies were giving good value for money — hats (and quite possibly trousers) off then, to Stockton Borough Council for an imaginative interpretation of the rules. We have become the most watched people in the world. More CCTV cameras than anywhere — even North Korea! And every intrusion into our private lives is justified under that banner “the battle against terrorism”. It’s time we said that enough is enough.

WHY did the Queens’s corgis try to eat Princess Beatrice’s pet Norfolk terrier, Max? The grisly event occurred at Balmoral Castle, where the dogs were spending a late summer holiday (presumably Ibiza was all booked up). A bunch of six of the corgis suddenly went berserk and tried to rip Max to pieces. He had to be taken to a vet and there was, apparently, “blood everywhere”. Was some-

thing nasty said between the dogs? Corgis are very Right-wing dogs and are known to bear grudges. It may be that they attacked Max because they thought he was common, not being “proper royalty”. And what was the Queen doing during the attack? Was she standing their urging them on, shouting “Go on Daffyd, rip his throat out?” Were any bets placed upon the outcome? I think we should be told.

This research comes from New York State University and if you’re a man it might be worth printing off their research paper and carrying it around with you. Not only does it make women less depressed and feel better, it also makes them a lot brighter, too – and more able to do “cognitive tasks”. It doesn’t say this in the research, but it also keeps them quiet for a few minutes.

PM fears Lib Dems will dump leader for election

ASIL Nadir was behind bars last night after fleecing his Polly Peck empire of nearly £29million. Fallen tycoon Nadir, 71, was yesterday found guilty of 10 counts of fraud totalling £28.6million at the Old Bailey. However, prosecutors alleged the total stolen from shareholders was almost £150million. The Turkish Cypriot, who fled bail in 1993 and spent 17 years in Northern Cyprus, was cleared of three counts involving £5million. Nadir was last night in London’s Belmarsh jail, awaiting sentence today. The case cost taxpayers more than £100million — and his wife Nur, 28, said he would appeal, vowing “this unhappy affair” is not over. Olympic cycling champ Sir Chris Hoy had a 30minute Typhoon jet flight yesterday during a visit to RAF Leuchars, Fife.

tion’s survival, the Premier now believes. The poll of 500 Lib Dem activists by website Liberal Democrat Voice reveals a big division over who should lead the struggling party into the 2015 election. While 47 per cent of Lib Dem members still want it to be Mr Clegg, 46 per cent want him to resign before then. One

Tory minister told The Sun: “David is extremely worried by Clegg’s position. “As he sees it, there may well be no Coalition if Clegg gets forced out so it’s vital he gets all the help he can.” Mr Clegg suffered a series of blows over the summer. Business Secretary Vince Cable put himself forward as a possible new leader and Mr Clegg was forced to withdraw plans to reform the House of

Lords. Rebellious Tory MPs made it clear they would always block the move. He faces a rocky party conference in Brighton next month. Bookies William Hill have cut the odds of him being replaced before 2015 to just 6-5. Clegg supporters insisted he was determined to stay. One said: “Nick has made clear that he intends to lead the Lib Dems into the next election.” t.newtondunn@the-sun.co.uk

The test drive by Nasa was part of a check-up for the vehicle, which landed 18 days ago after an eight-month trip. The US space agency said problems with a damaged wind sensor would not be serious. Eventually Curiosity could roam hundreds of feet a day, scooping up soil samples with its 7ft arm.

Claims . . . Maryam & Story

A TRAINEE hair stylist was offered £10,000 by her boss in an Indecent Proposal-style sex offer, a tribunal heard. Maryam Mashayekhi, 34, claimed Christopher Story, 39, also pushed her head towards his groin as they sat in a car. She said she finally quit the salon in Sheffield, South Yorks, after months of sex and racial harassment. Mrs Mashayekhi said she was dubbed a “slave”, quizzed about her sex life, and introduced to business pals of Mr Story as a “former prostitute”. She told the employment tribunal: “He said, ‘Are you having sex for £1,000, what about £2,000 or £10,000?’ I said, ‘No, not even for £20,000. I love my husband.’” Mr Story denied her allegations and said they had a good working relationship. Mrs Mashayekhi is claiming sex and race discrimination against George Plus One Ltd, a franchise of Toni & Guy. The hearing continues.

Five-year-old Lara Lewis was playing with shells in the sand when she was dragged out by a powerful wave.
Her grandparents desperately tried to reach her. But Brian O’Dwyer, 66, died and grandmother Jill was last night recovering after being pulled from the water. Lara’s parents Philip, 47, and Sian, 36, were left devastated after the tragedy in Nazare on the Atlantic coast on Tuesday. The couple, of Hackney, East London, who had documented their daughter’s life with photos and videos on Facebook, were believed to be visiting the grandparents. Philip’s mum Sara Lewis, 72, said her son was barely able to speak to her on the phone. Sara, of Canterbury, Kent, said: “I knew something terrible had happened by the sound of his voice. He almost couldn’t bring himself to tell me. “I couldn’t make it all out but I knew I didn’t want him to repeat it. He talked about a wave and how it overcame Lara. “Brian, a wonderful, brave man, tried to rescue her. He swam out Dad. . . Philip with Lara but they couldn’t make it. Lara was a magical little girl, full of happiness.” Sara said she expected Philip, who has two teenage sons from a previous relationship, and Sian to return home soon. She added: “They are strong people, with very supporting families but I don’t know how they’ll get over this.” Sian is thought to have been with university professor husband Philip when disaster struck. The grandparents had taken Lara and her three-year-old cousin, who was unscathed, for a stroll along the sands. Coastguard Nuno Carreira, 19, who tried to revive Lara, said: “We saw a fisherman with the girl in his arms. She wasn’t moving. We then realised the grandmother was in the water. She was crying and screaming for her husband and granddaughter. “Her parents arrived at the scene about ten minutes after we did. I think they had been sunbathing further along the beach. “The mum and dad were screaming and crying. This is a very dangerous beach. The waves were up to ten feet high. “They were about 400 yards outside the d.sales@the-sun.co.uk area we monitor.”

THIS is the British girl who drowned when swept out to sea in Portugal — with the brave grandad who died trying to save her.

AUTHOR Nina Bawden, who wrote the children’s classic Carrie’s War, died yesterday aged 87. She penned more than 40 novels including Circles of Deceit — shortlisted for the 1987 Booker Prize — and children’s favourite The Peppermint Pig. Carrie’s War — drawing on her experience as a wartime evacuee — is now read in schools as part of the national curriculum. Bawden also campaigned for rail safety after she was seriously injured and her husband Austen Kark killed in the 2002 Potters Bar train crash. She died at her London home and leaves a son, a daughter and two stepdaughters.

PARALYMPIC FEVER MOUNTS

Coe hits a high as flames lit on peaks
By RYAN SABEY

Torch . . . Coe on Snowdon

LONDON 2012 supremo Lord Coe trekked to the top of Mount Snowdon yesterday to help light the Paralympic flame. The Games organiser was joined by six Scouts who created sparks to ignite the torch, which will travel across Wales. Three other groups held similar torch ceremonies on Scafell Pike in the Lake District, Ben Nevis in the Highlands, and Slieve Donard in County Down, Northern Ireland. Each flame was placed in a miner’s lantern and brought down from the UK’s highest peaks on foot. The four torches will be united on Tuesday at Stoke Mandeville hospital, Bucks — the birthplace of the Paralympic Games. Torchbearers will then relay the flame to London where it will pass landmarks before the Opening Ceremony at the Olympic Stadium next Wednesday. After his three-hour trek, Lord Coe said: “It’s been a great team effort.”

One of the first arrivals was New Zealand yachtswoman Jan Apel, who said: “I’ve been very well looked after. Everyone is smiling.” Canadian wheelchair racer Diane Roy was delighted to be in Britain but said: “I hope it doesn’t rain.” Other contingents arriving included those from Russia, Thai-

The official Paralympic website is being inundated and 2.3 million tickets — 92 per cent of those available — have already been sold. Now these Paralympics are set to be the first to be sold out since the

inaugural Games in Rome in 1960. Last night 100,000 general admission tickets, which grant entry to the Olympic Park to watch big screens but not to events themselves, went on sale for as little as £1. London 2012 chairman Lord Coe said: “I’m thrilled we can give more people the opportunity to experience the Olympic Park.” Details of the Opening Ceremony next Wednesday, called Enlightenment, are being kept secret.

THE WANTED are within their rights to get some tour money off NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK. The Nineties band called the group onstage during their slot at the Mixtape festival in the US at the weekend. They later spent time with NKOTB and BACKSTREET BOYS after the show. MAX GEORGE tweeted: “Last night was insane, Sung Glad You Came with New Kids!!” Now the lads know what they will look like in 30 years’ time.

ORITSE IS LOVEDUP AT LAST

ASTON MERRYGOLD is officially out of wingmen, which might be why he’s spent his holiday trying on novelty wigs. The last remaining single JLS star other than Aston, ORITSE WILLIAMS, has got himself a girlfriend. He’s dating AMY JANE from girlband VIDA – which Oritse manages. The singer invited the redhead out to Antigua for the band’s lads’ holiday, joining a few of their pals and JB’s girlfriend CHLOE TANGNEY. A source said: “It has been nice for Oritse and Amy to spend some time together. “Oritse is one of the hardest-working members of the group, plus he spends a lot of time looking after his mum, so it has been nice for him to relax for a bit. “They get on really well and are relaxed in each other’s company. It might be a big group holiday but they’ve still managed to find a bit of time to themselves.” Nothing like a game of miniature golf. SHAUN RYDER saw in his 50th birthday in style last night with a HAPPY MONDAYS gig in Ibiza. The band, who re-formed with their original line up this year, headlined Ibiza Rocks supported by REVEREND AND THE MAKERS. The group helped bring dance music to indie kids in the early Nineties so it’s only right that they played the club night.

NOEL GALLAGHER would still be a roadie if his music career hadn’t worked out. The former OASIS star went on the road with indie band the INSPIRAL CARPETS back in the late Eighties. And he believes that would have been his job for life if success hadn’t come his way. He said: “I would have been out there now, probably in an ill-fitting black T-shirt with a tattoo and some scruffy Converse trainers. Because that is what they all wear. “But I was maybe the bestdressed roadie in the history of music. I used to wear white jeans and never got them dirty. I was too quick for the dirt.” He must have saved a fortune on Daz . . .

CARPETS BEATER..

HERE are THE KILLERS getting their first taste of a Mr Whippy. The US group – BRANDON FLOWERS, DAVE KEUNING, MARK STOERMER and RONNIE VANNUCCI – filmed scenes for a new video alongside an ice cream van in north London. It’s not your typical look for a bunch

of chart wildmen, but at least it’s more rock ’n’ roll than licking a Solero. Meanwhile, the band have announced their iTunes Festival gig. They’ll play The Roundhouse in Camden, north London, on September 11. There’s bound to be an ice cream van close to that venue.

IF Ethan Hunt from Mission: Impossible visited a curry house, he’d order a vindaloo. But TOM CRUISE, who plays the fearless action hero, plays it safe when picking a curry. The actor and pals visited an Indian restaurant in London this week – but could only stomach a girly chicken tikka masala. Even his daughter, SURI, could’ve done better than that. The group ordered fish and chicken starters, two lobsters, two lamb dishes, rice, bread and two chicken tikka masalas. The star must have liked the meal – the bill came to £220.85 and he left a £79.50 tip. That’s worth an extra hot towel . . .

TOM’S A LOO-SER

early Nineties, she’d have been a cert for a part on Baywatch. Here’s the Aussie larking about with a fellow model at a photoshoot on a beach in Sydney. However in recent weeks she’s mostly been wearing dungarees to work on the organic farm she has set up with actor husband ORLANDO BLOOM at their LA home. Concerned about what was going into baby son Flynn’s food, they have turned part of their garden into an allotment. They are already producing soft fruit and vegetables. A source said: “Orlando and Miranda love organic food. They aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty and have grown enough to dish it out to pals.” For the sake of schoolboy humour, each friend should receive two plums and one courgette.

Yobs pelt blindgran with eggs
By GUY PATRICK

Annie . . . with her dog

A BLIND granny told yesterday how vile louts pelted her with EGGS as she walked along a street with her guide dog. Terrified Annie GilesQuinn heard them yell “Wahey!” from their car when a missile splattered on the back of head. As she broke down in tears, the yobs turned around and drove past her again, beeping the horn and cheering. Heartbroken Annie, 58, of Collyhurst, Manchester, said: “I feel violated and can’t believe someone would be so cruel. “They could see I had a guide dog. Why would they do such a thing? It has left me traumatised.” Annie was walking to visit her ten-week-old grandson James with her black labrador when the attack happened. She went blind in 2005 after chemotherapy for breast cancer triggered a genetic condition called cone-rod dystrophy. Manchester Police are appealing for witnesses.

A MAN had his nose bitten off during a vicious brawl at a restaurant. The fight, which spilled into the street outside, erupted after his sister was punched in the face. The brother was attacked as he confronted the thug in Newington, Kent. A witness said: “They went head-to-head and the guy bit the tip of the brother’s nose clean off. There was blood everywhere.” Police are investigating. Vandals daubed graffiti on the gold post box honouring Olympic triathlon winner Alistair Brownlee in Horsforth, West Yorks.

EXCLUSIVE: THE ROLE ANNA FRIEL DIDN’T GET
By GRANT ROLLINGS
MANY actresses have no-nudity clauses in their contracts – and try their best to keep their kit on.
When she realised the script for her new film had no scenes requiring her to strip off, she insisted one was added. The 32-year-old star was amazed at the omission because she admits she is most famous for appearing in her underwear. Talking exclusively to The Sun about Keith Lemon: The Film — in which she plays herself — Kelly waxes lyrical about the moment she walks down a corridor in only her lingerie. The stunning vision appears on screen when failed Yorkshire businessman Keith Lemon’s randy imagination goes wild. Lemon is the creation of comic actor Leigh Francis, who first captured the attention of audiences with his character Avid Merrion and the TV show Bo’ Selecta!. Kelly said: “I got the script — but there was no part where I was in underwear. “There was nothing remotely like that. It was always Keith referencing sexy things. So I said to Leigh, ‘You have not got one scene where I am in my underwear, which is probably what I am most famous for in the UK.’

“He goes, ‘Well, we didn’t want to ask you.’ And I was like, ‘Listen, I think you should do it. When I walk down the corridor, you can put me in slow-mo, give me a wind machine and let me do my thing.’” Director Paul Angunawela, who co-wrote the movie with Leigh, did not think they had time for Kelly to slip off her dress — but her fans will be happy that she managed it. Kelly added: “I was thinking, ‘Why am I trying to sell it to them?’ Most actresses try to talk themselves out of these scenes — but that’s where I am generous. I felt the movie needed more girls. “But it did help that I got to plug my Kelly Brook New Look lingerie. There was something in it for me. “Leigh wanted Anna Friel for the role but she wasn’t available. I just want to get paid. I’m still waiting.” There is nothing that the star likes more than playing up to her image as a sexy woman who is not taken seriously. In 2010 she was in the tongue-incheek horror movie Piranha 3D, which took a respectable £53million at the box office. Kelly said: “I love being on set, I love working in films, I love working on TV. I am lucky — every year I get a goody. “I am not doing too badly for someone who is not an actress.” Kelly did go to stage school for three years — and is great fun in the new movie, out tomorrow. She said: “Of course I’m an actress — but I think people have a hard time calling me one. “I am not sure what qualifies you to call yourself an actress. “I went to acting school, I have had two West End plays, 12 films and a handful of TV shows and I still can’t call myself an actress, apparently. “They see all the glamour girls and me on the cover of magazines.” The busty beauty has been the body of Ultimo underwear and

posed in the top-shelf Playboy magazine. But she seems to lose jobs almost as frequently as she loses her clothes. She lasted just six months as the co-host of The Big Breakfast in 1999 and just a week as a judge on Britain’s Got Talent in 2009. When Keith first meets her in the film he quickly reminds her of it. But Kelly does not mind being the butt of the joke. She said: “What Keith says is what people think. He says, ‘I saw you on Britain’s Got Talent and you got sacked. I saw you on The Big Breakfast and you got sacked.’ “And I think that maybe when people meet me that’s what they

think. That’s what people read. Your whole life is condensed down to that.” Perhaps because of that, Kelly’s feet have remained on the ground. She said: “Before I get a chance for fame to go to my head I get fired.

Temptations

“I don’t last long enough on TV shows for it to go to my head. I come back to earth really quickly. “So perhaps it is a blessing in disguise that I have never got too big-headed. I have soon had to go, ‘Ooh, I’m unemployed again. Where is my next job coming from?’”

Kelly is dating former rugby player Thom Evans. Previous boyfriends include actors Jason Statham and Billy Zane and former England rugby star Danny Cipriani. But she insists she has never gone out with anyone for their wealth or fame. She said: “I could so easily be that person. I get so much access to parties and men with ridiculous amounts of money and fame. “There are all those temptations. I have had lovely high-profile boyfriends in my time but there has always been a genuine reason I have been there. Fortunately, I

have been able to carve out my own career and I’ve never really needed anybody for anything. “That’s the great part of being independent. “So as silly as I come across, I am quite a savvy, independent woman underneath it all.” Kelly believes that the changing fortunes of her love life have been more interesting than the roles she has had on screen. She said: “Because of the appetite for celeb culture, for the

past ten years so much of my private life and experiences have been much more entertaining than the movies I have made. The focus has been on that. “People want to know what you are wearing, who you are dating, what toothpaste you use, what you eat in the morning, especially with Twitter.” Kelly is a regular user of the social networking site, tweeting about her life, loves and interests. During the Olympics she showed her fascination for Britain’s bronze medal-winning diver Tom Daley when she wrote: “After watching the sunset, now watching Tom Daley — not sure which is prettier.”

Kelly, who attended the opening ceremony of the London Games, added: “Tom Daley was a lot prettier, I think.” Unlike many other celebrities, she has not been affected by the growing problem of abusive trolls on Twitter. If anyone writes nasty messages, she simply ignores them. She said: “I skip over those bits. I only read the complimentary bits. You know people say don’t read your own press. Don’t believe the good, don’t believe the bad. “Well, I only read the good and only believe the good.” You look pretty good to us, Kelly. g.rollings@the-sun.co.uk

REPUPLIC OF IRELAND

BITING MANIAC GOES FREE
She attacked Jamie Montgomery, 27, in a nightclub and also bit her face. Jamie spent 29 days in hospital, needed plastic surgery and may never regain the use of her thumb. She said: “She just bit and bit me. I saw all the blood. It was extreme pain.” Smith bit the thumb of a second victim, 21-year-old Charlotte Forde, at home in Blackpool after a boozy bust-up, telling her: “I’ve done this before!” It happened when Smith was on bail for the first offence. Prosecutor Jon Close told Preston Crown Court that, asked why she bit Jamie, Smith “said she was hungry. In her own words, she just went mad”. But she avoided jail despite being convicted of assaulting Charlotte and admitting GBH of Jamie at separate trials. She got a supervision order for the assault and a suspended jail term for the GBH. r.dale@thesun.co.uk

MUMS are now the main breadwinners in a quarter of homes for the first time — but they still do most of the chores, a report reveals. In Wales the figure was higher, with more than a third of women bringing home bigger wages but still doing housework. Overall, nine in ten mums work either full or part-time. And of those who are the main earners, three in four do the washing and ironing. The majority also cook and clean, Asda’s Mumdex report revealed.

‘RESTORED’

After old lady tried to fix it

A PAINTING of Christ was ruined when a bungling pensioner tried to restore it.

The woman in her 80s did not ask permission to take her brushes to the masterpiece.

Her amateur efforts made it look

like a child’s daub — and left art experts around the world fuming. Elijah Garcia Martinez’s 19th-century fresco Ecce Homo had taken pride of place in the The Sanctuary of Mercy Church in Zaragoza, Spain, for more than 120 years. But

it had deteriorated recently because of moisture in the building. Professional restorers are to examine the painting to see if it can be saved. A spokesman from Spain’s Centre for Borjanos, which tries to preserve old artworks, said: “The value of the work was not very high but it had sentimental value. The old lady

acted without authorisation. There is a guard in the church, but no one realised what she was doing until she had finished.” To make matters worse, The Centre had been given a donation from the artist’s granddaughter, which they had planned to spend on restoration. j.coles@the-sun.co.uk

A MAN who lives as an Apache Indian has won a court battle to keep badger paws and eagle wings — in his semi in Swansea. Mangas Colaradas, 60, wanted to make a headdress and was due to stand trial yesterday accused of protected wildlife offences. At previous hearings the dad of six arrived in ceremonial clothes, suede moccasins and a snake’s head necklace. But prosecutors had reservations about the case — and dropped it. Mangas adopted his Apache lifestyle after his divorce 20 years ago. He got the paws and wings while living in a tepee on Spain’s Costa del Sol in 2000. He said last night: “Common sense should have come into it sooner but they don’t understand my way of life.”

A MUM has released a chilling picture diary to show how meningitis took her daughter to the brink of death — in FOUR HOURS. Michelle Scoffings, 34, released the images of threeyear-old Erica’s fight for life to raise awareness of the bug’s symptoms. The little girl, who survived, is shown in intensive care on drips with bandages covering her legs which went black as septicaemia ate away her flesh. Just hours earlier Michelle and husband Michael, 25, spotted dark purple marks on her skin — a tell-tale sign of the illness. Doctors diagnosed meningococcal septicaemia and said Erica was near death. Michelle, of Chesterfield, Derbyshire, said: “It all happened so quickly. I was terrified as there was nothing I could do. Erica was screaming and I just had to sit there and watch.” Battling Erica, who fell ill in January, has had skin grafts and will need splints to walk properly but is due to start nursery next week.

WOMEN who have sex without condoms have better mental health, a study has claimed. It reveals that male seminal fluid contains compounds that reduce depression, enhance moods, increase affection and induce sleep. Having sex without a condom allows them to be absorbed through a woman’s vaginal tissue. The study examined the sex lives of 293 women students at New York’s State University. It found that those who never used condoms showed “significantly fewer depressive symptoms” than those who did — and those who abstained from sex.

SURVEY REVEALS MURDER CAPITAL

Big C rise a mystery
A MYSTERY trigger linked to modern living has caused a surge of cancer cases since the 1950s, say scientists. Global rates of oesophageal adenocarcinoma, which affects the food pipe, are increasing by up to eight per cent a year. A pattern first emerged in the UK in the 1960s and spread to the US a decade later. It now kills around 7,000 Brits a year. But risk factors such as smoking and obesity can’t account for the worldwide rise on their own, Swedish researchers wrote in journal Gut. They added that the implications were “potentially alarming”.

She’s the girl with three hearts.

I said: “Gosh, aren’t you beautiful. What’s happened?” She said: “I’ve got a brand new heart.” For two hours she had us all crying with laughter, grabbing the camera and taking pictures of me. Two years later Amy had a second transplant — her third heart. Now eight, she has an MoT for her heart every two months but she always has a smile on her face. It has been tough for her mum Veronica and her dad Adam, too.

PENSIONER pals Brenda Beveridge and Nell Harfield caught Duncan’s eye as they sat in the Glades shopping centre in Bromley, Kent, chatting and laughing. He says: LOOK at these two girls. They were just sat on a bench in a mall, smiling and laughing. I went up behind them, got out my bubble mixture and blew bubbles over them. They said: “Oooh!” and I said: “Hello, I’m Duncan, I like making people happy!” It turns out they went to school together aged five. At seven or eight, their parents moved and they did not see each other for 50 years. They married, moved away and had children. Their husbands later died — then a few years ago they bumped into each other again at a bus stop. Now they meet up daily, catching up on the years they missed. Brenda told me: “Aged around 70, you feel like a child again, without a care. “We treasure every day we can still see, breathe and hear a robin sing.”

HEADMASTER Dominic’s family have run Merton Court Prep School, in Sidcup, south east London, for 30 years, and have created a magical place for the three to 11-year-old pupils. Duncan says: EVERY day the school is filled with joy and laughter. Dominic is 53 and has been the headteacher for the past 17 years. His mum Elizabeth ran the school before. His brother Chris, who has multiple sclerosis, is deputy head and his wife Sarah teaches there. Dominic thought the Olympics were amazing and the volunteers an inspiration, and that we need as a nation to rediscover that positivity, enthusiasm and can-do attitude. So why not start with primary school pupils, before people start telling them what they can’t do? Dominic says school should not be a drudge — it should be fun and engaging. To him, and thousands of others around the country, teaching really is a vocation but they don’t always get the praise they deserve.

CAPTAIN Mainwaring impersonator David, a businessman from Rugby, Warks, had Duncan in stitches when they met at a book launch last year. Duncan says: I went to photograph my hero Jimmy Perry, who wrote Dad’s Army, at the launch of a book about Arnold Ridley (Private Godfrey). I had just been with Jimmy when a real-life Captain Mainwaring appeared. This chap in uniform stood on a chair and ordered everyone to be quiet. He had us all in hysterics. It turned out he was a rather posh businessman. I asked him: “Do you do this regularly?” and he said: “What do you mean, regularly, you stupid boy? There is a war on.” Most businessmen take themselves too seriously. They need to realise it’s just good to be silly and have fun, like David does. We had a day out in uniform, him as Captain Mainwaring and me as Cuthbert, the wing commander. We even went to Spain and made a film about these two characters — I filmed David marching straight into the hotel pool. Oh, the joy of being really silly.

ROY Of The Savoy, as he was known, was a barman at the London hotel for 40 years. Duncan says: We all take many photographs of our children as they grow up, but we rarely photograph the other end of a person’s life. I wanted to shoot a day in a life of an 84-year-old, so two years ago I started with a chap known as Roy of The Savoy — a man with the personality of ten men. I got to know Roy through one of his lady friends. His wife had died about six years ago, which was pretty traumatic for him. But, as he said, he was still alive, with a life to live, and he has already lived a remarkable life. He was a barman at The Savoy mixing drinks for the great and the good, and dancing with Elizabeth Taylor and Marilyn Monroe. They were hard shifts, working from morning to late at night, with a three or four-hour break during the day. He used the time off to play snooker, or poker. I called him “Playboy”. I spent a day photographing him at his suburban home, doing ordinary things. I shot a massive 1,500 photos of him and we laughed all day. I also documented his odd rituals — he used tea bags three times and broke Rich Tea biscuits into four pieces. I have now made a book, The Day In A Life Of Roy Of The Savoy. Roy, 86, now has dementia and lives in a nursing home in Eastbourne, but he is still the biggest personality there. A top man.

THEY’RE the everyday Brits who make our country great – and former celebrity photographer Duncan Raban has been giving them the star treatment. Duncan, 55, has been travelling the UK for five years in search of

these heroes, learning their stories and taking their pictures. This week we have been profiling the people he met. Here, MARTIN PHILLIPS introduces you to some more of Duncan’s encounters.

TATTOOED trucker Jim walked into a roadside cafe in Suffolk as Duncan was having a cuppa. Duncan says: I PARKED up at the Mid Stop cafe, on the A14 south of Bury St Edmunds. It was a glorified garden shed in a pool of mud. I ordered a tea then a big, scarylooking trucker came in, covered in tattoos and with giant gold rings. He sat down and asked for the Olympic breakfast. I said: “Hello, I love your rings.” His name was Jim, a trucker of 40 years, from the Midlands. Within minutes I felt I had known him years. I heard his tales of life on the road, the loss of his wife

from smoking and how his truck was now his best friend. I said he looked so great that I was going to photograph him for a project on the people of England. He said: “You’re joking. I’m just a trucker!” But I said: “Oh no, Jim, you’re a fabulous trucker, a playboy with a great big heart.” He was dipping bread into his eggs. I loved his huge arms of tattoos — and the rings. Each ring had a story. One carried a portrait of a racehorse he had owned. Jim has since fallen in love again — and I am delighted for him.

DAN AND THE SINGLE MUM: DAY 4

WELL, ER, NO DISRESPECT BUT ISN’T IT BED TIME? IT’S NEARLY TEN O’CLOCK

DAN’S RIGHT, IT’S LATE. NOW, GO TO SLEEP, THERE’S A GOOD GIRL BUT I DON’T LIKE IT IN THIS ROOM, MUMMY. I WANT TO BE IN THE BIG BED, WITH YOU

I’m 24 and he’s 26. We met at a nightclub in February. He seemed to be on his own and looked so fit I plucked up the courage to ask him to dance. We smooched to a slowie then went for a drink. I noticed he was wearing a shiny new wed-

just left. He says he loves me but won’t leave his wife till he’s more sure about us.

ding ring so I asked him why he was picking up girls. He laughed at first then said his wife didn’t want to have fun so he had to go out on his own. He said he’d only been married for eight months. He walked me home. I asked him in for a drink and he ended up staying the night. He texted his wife to say he was with friends. The sex was amazing and I knew I wanted this man for myself. We met at the end of the week for a drink. He told me he’d fallen out of love with his wife and they hadn’t had sex since they married. Part of me said to stay well away, the other that I had nothing to lose. We’ve been lovers for six months. I love him so much and want us to be a real couple. He says he’s not going to leave his wife yet in case our relationship doesn’t work out. I’m sick of the waiting and sneaking about. Will he ever be mine or am I a mug? n DEIDRE SAYS: He doesn’t sound like a great bet to me. Don’t

WE NEED A BREAK FROM SIS
I LOVE my sister and brother-in-law but they want to spend every weekend with us. And now they’re talking about us all going on holiday together. It’s all getting a bit much. My husband and I are in our late 20s and my sister is four years younger. She got married last year and ever since then she’s been putting pressure on us to go on weekend breaks with them. We’ve been away with them twice and we had a nice time. None of us have kids to consider. It’s just that we don’t want to spend all our free time with them. n DEIDRE SAYS: Perhaps she’s keen to show her big sister that she’s now got the husband and the lifestyle – just like you. It’s time to be kind but assertive. When she suggests weekends or breaks together, at least sometimes say you’re arranging to see other friends or want a quiet weekend with just the two of you. How you organise your leisure time is your choice. I’m sending my leaflet How To Be Assertive to help you be honest without being harsh.

I suspect you won’t see him again so I’m sending my leaflet Lover Not Free? to help you understand why you’re even thinking of being with a married man.

I want a hol lot more from pal
I AM a girl of 22 and next week I’m going to Turkey with a male pal. He isn’t my boyfriend but I hope a week in the sun will persuade him to give it a go. He’s 22 as well. We’ve been friends for ages and have talked about taking things further but he doesn’t want to risk our friendship. A few months went by and I asked him again. He said he hadn’t thought about it but he asked me to go on holiday with him

I ONLY climax when I have full sex with my girlfriend, even though she wants to pleasure me in other ways as well. I’m 24, she’s 25 and we’ve been together for a year. I’m worried that she’s going to go off me for this, although she says there’s no chance. Is this just me or is this something other guys experience too? n DEIDRE SAYS: This clearly isn’t a physical problem as you have no trouble climaxing during intercourse. It’s more likely that you don’t feel quite relaxed enough to let go – possibly because of deep-rooted attitudes towards sex. Vary the sex play so that you’re not just going for one approach or the other – and don’t forget to return the compliment. The advice line today Want To Be A Wilder Lover? has more tips to help you let go.

Dear Deidre

. . . JUST WHEN I WAS GETTING WARMED UP

I’M dad to a wonderful, fabulous boy but I only went out with his mum for two months. She’s now spreading lies about me and I’m worried I may lose my son. I’m 27 and she’s 31. We met when we were working together in London and had a passionate but volatile relationship. We were careless and she got pregnant almost straight away. We argued so much all the time that we decided to call it a day. She went back to her home town, but I went to see her after the baby was born and stayed for a couple of months. She kept picking fights then I found out that she was seeing someone else. My emotions got the better of me and

SON’S MUM HATES ME Dear Deidre

and two mates. Then his mates dropped out so it’s just me and him. Is this my chance or am I fooling myself? n DEIDRE SAYS: There’s only one way to find out. Make up your mind to have a wonderful holiday regardless of what happens. Maybe those hot Turkish nights will work their magic, but stay in control. Limit your alcohol and make it clear you don’t just want a fling. If nothing happens during this trip, start looking for somebody else.

I said I wanted nothing to do with her or the baby. I knew I’d made a mistake. I went back to say sorry but now she’s stopped speaking to me. I just want to be there for my son. He’s all that matters to me but she says she’s moving away and won’t tell me where. n DEIDRE SAYS: It’s so sad that she’s lying and picking fights instead of just thinking what’s best for her child. Write a letter to her saying whatever mistakes the two of you have made, your son deserves to have two loving parents. Tell her you want to be able to share in his life and pay your fair share towards his needs. Contact Families Need Fathers for advice and support (0300 0300 363, fnf. org.uk). Let me know how you get on.

FRIEND’S DEATH LEFT HAYLEY
WHEN Hayley Fraser first rang a dial-a-psychic line she expected advice on life, love and the future — but instead ended up BANKRUPT.
By JENNY FRANCIS Jeans, £40, River Island Shoe, £33, Schuh

Jumper, £14, Primark

And at the end of a year and a half as her addiction deepened she owed a £15,000. She declared bankruptcy aged 21 to clear the debts — but STILL could not kick the habit of four 45-minute calls a day. Years later, after piling up a further £5,000 debt she finally took control of her own future — with the help of her partner — instead of leaving it up to strangers on the end of a phone. Hayley, now 29, says: “I lived my life by what they told me and without it I felt completely lost and unable to function. “I didn’t have anyone else I felt I could talk to and the psychics would listen to my problems and offer advice, visions into my future and contact from beyond the grave. I spent my days wondering what I’d find out

The lonely mum became so dependent on the £1.50-a-minute premium rate service that she was soon racking up bills of £300 a month.

on the next phone call and as soon as I hung up on one I was already thinking of new questions for the next.” Hayley first fell under the spell of the fortune tellers aged 19 after the death of a cherished friend and the birth of her first child, Stephen, who is now ten. She recalls: “I felt lonely and, without close family and friends, craved a confidante. “I came across psychic phone lines online and they seemed to offer everything I needed. “Just a quick phone call and I might be able to hear something from my friend, or find out if I’d feel better in the future.” And it seemed to work, giving the grieving teenager extraordinary comfort. She says of that first fateful call: “They told me my friend was safe and that, although I was going through a low period in my life, that things were about to get better. “It felt amazing to think I was still in contact with my friend but when the call ended it was like I had lost her all over again.” Day by day, her reliance on the lines grew. Full-time mum Hayley, of Glasgow, explains: “When the psychics told me that it was going to be OK I believed them. It felt so reassuring to know someone had seen into my

future and that everything was going to turn out right. “But hearing those reassuring words was addictive and it became an obsession to call up and ask what was going to happen to me, just to make sure nothing would change. “I was desperate to find out what was going to happen to me in the future and the more they told me, the more I relied on them.” Not even when the debt began to be overwhelming did her faith waver. She says: “To try to pay some money back, I took a part-time job in a chip shop. “But it didn’t even touch the repayments.

UNABLE TO COPE WITHOUT PREMIUM-RATE REASSURANCE
to pass my driving test and I’d call to see if I was going to pass. “It took me five attempts and every time they told me I’d be successful.” By then she had a second child Danielle, now nine, and had split up with the kids’ dad after two years together. But she was in love again with new man Thomas Fraser, 42. But she still clung to the phone as her main source of support. She admits: “Although I fell for Thomas, at the start of our relationship I still called the psychics daily. I wanted to tell them about my new man and see what they thought of him and if they saw him in my future. I’d talk about whether he was good for the children and ask questions about our relationship. “It was more addictive than before as everything they told me made me more excited to be with Thomas.” Eventually she confided in Thomas about her past financial problems and he begged her to stay away from the lines. She couldn’t — but she did start hiding the bills. She says: “It was so hard lying to Thomas but my addiction had such a strong grip. “I felt lost in my own life without the constant reassurances from the psychics. “I worried I’d break down without being told my future looked bright.” But eventually,

Scary

“I was in denial about my bills and continuing debt.” Eventually, at 21 and £15,000 in the red she sought financial help and was advised to go bankrupt — but her calls continued. She says: “It was scary and I didn’t know if there was going to be a way out until I declared myself bankrupt. “I thought it might be a clean slate for me and a way to get on with my life without the help of the psychics “But I was an addict, and no amount of bankruptcy was about to cure my craving, so I carried on." Her faith even withstood some spectacular foul-ups. She laughs: “I was trying

PSYCHIC phonelines can be a trap for the vulnerable. Those we offer at The Sun are monitored for callers developing dependency. In such cases psychic readers are instructed to refuse or terminate calls – but of course, the chance to have someone listen and offer the hope of a positive outcome is alluring. Most people with emotional problems now know they can

talk to a counsellor but often suspect their behaviour might be challenged, whereas they hope a psychic may offer a hopeful view of the future without the need for tough changes. Reputable psychics,

like our own Mystic Meg, will never give damaging readings but I hear from readers who have fallen for psychics who foretell tragedy in a way that risks driving them into crisis. So by all means consult a psychic for a different view, but, if in emotional crisis, first get informed support with the issues facing you. And I can always point you in a helpful direction.

three years into their relationship, Thomas discovered through a friend Hayley had confided in that she had racked up £5,000 worth of secret calls. She says: “I confessed for the first time how addicted I really was. “Once he had got over the shock he really helped me. He talked to me and encouraged me to open up to him instead of the stranger on the other end of the phone. “He supported me and the kids, and my feelings of loneliness slowly went away until I realised the psychic phone lines were only making me isolate myself from the world. “In fact they make you feel more alone as you begin to rely on the faceless person on the phone — it’s a dangerous addiction. “Now my life has changed so much, I met Thomas, we got married in June 2010, moved house and I’m happier than I’ve ever been — none of which the psychics predicted. “I’ve had some lapses, like every addict, where I’ve given in and called. “They sent me a voucher in the post for £10 of free psychic time which I couldn’t resist. “But it didn’t make me feel as good as before and I’ve realised that I don’t need it in my life now. “I’m happy I got out when I did and have an amazing family standing by me. “That’s all I need to know to help me step into the future.”

n COMMODITY trader GLENCORE has been slammed for saying the worst US drought for 80 years is “good for business”. Chris Mahoney, the head of Glencore’s agricultural products arm, said it gave the company a chance to cash in on soaring prices. He holds £500million of shares in the firm. Ex-UN employee Raj Patel said: “They’re millionaires making money from others’ misery.”

THE FTSE 100 FELL 83.32 TO 5774.20

OIL prices will more than DOUBLE and trigger a severe recession if Israel invades Iran, a top City guru warned yesterday. Julian Jessop, chief global economist at CAPIsaid TAL ECONOMICS, Brent would leap above $200 (£126) a barrel. He told Sun City: “It could potentially be very serious. The oil price could easily double and tip the world into another recession. The worst case scenario is pretty bad.” The Sun last week revealed Israel is preparing for a ground attack on Iran before Christmas. Mr Jessop said it was wrong to dismiss the threat “out of hand”. But he claimed Iran’s president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was likely to cave in over its nuclear programme before an attack was needed — given the damage caused to its economy by crippling European sanctions. Iranian oil exports to key markets have halved since the blockade on its crude started in July.

SINTANDER
BANKING giant SANTANDER was yesterday accused of “pure profiteering” after raising a key mortgage charge by FOUR TIMES the rate of inflation.
The increase of 12 per cent could push up the bills of almost HALF A MILLION people, insiders admit. It comes despite ongoing record-low Bank of England interest rates and the launch last month of the Bank’s “Funding for Lending” scheme aimed at cutting borrowing costs. Santander — which is infamous for its high customer complaints — blamed the move on rising costs and the need to offer savers more competitive rates. A spokesman said: “The cost of run-

O2 goes overseas
MOBILE phone giant O2 is offshoring key call centre work as part of a “fresh look” at trying to slash costs. Front-line customer service work currently handled by outsourcing giant CAPITA in Yorkshire is switching to Cape Town, South Africa. The move affects 200 staff in the Dearne Valley. It’s the first time overseas workers will handle calls from UK O2 customers. In an email Gareth Turpin, head of voice, sales and service, said: “The gap between our O2 revenues, along with the continuing reduction in profitability of the entire UK market, mean we must take a fresh look at all we do.”

Bank hikes mortgage charge by FOUR times inflation
The Spanish-owned firm’s Standard Variable Rate (SVR) will go from 4.24 to 4.74 per cent in October — slapping £500 on the annual cost of a typical £150,000 mortgage.
ning a bank in the UK has increased dramatically.” But Mark Harris, chief exec of mortgage broker SPF PRIVATE CLIENTS, blasted: “This move is profiteering, pure and simple. “Interest rates may have been held at 0.5 per cent for three-and-a-half years, but lenders such as Santander are raising their SVRs regardless. “The move puts its SVR towards the upper end of the scale when compared with other big lenders such as HALIFAX, WOOLWICH and NATIONWIDE.” The Sun revealed in March that Halifax, Britain’s biggest lender, was increasing its SVR to 3.99 per cent, a rise of 14 per cent. Adrian Anderson, of broker ANDERSON HARRIS, warned yesterday: “It’s possible that other lenders will raise their SVRs if they haven’t already.” Homeowners typically fall on to an

STATE-backed ROYAL BANK OF SCOTLAND faces a stinging fine from US regulators for allegedly breaching sanctions on Iran. Industry sources confirmed the American Department of Justice was looking into the bank’s dealings with the pariah state. It follows a review kickstarted by RBS chief exec

RBS SET FOR IRAN FINE

Stephen Hester, left, when he took over three years ago. A senior risk manager has already been fired. A spokesman said RBS first made public 18 months ago that it had initiated talks with US regulators. Germany’s COMMERZBANK is also being probed. STANDARD CHARTERED was fined £216million last week for dodgy transactions involving Iran.

SVR when their fixed-rate deal comes to an end. Experts said many coming off generous fixed-rate deals could now be trapped on the higher rate because they’re unable to re-mortgage. Santander’s move came as separate research showed a dramatic fall in mortgage products for buyers with tiny deposits. Price comparison website MONEYSUPERMARKET said the number of 95 per cent loan-to-value products on the market had plunged by 43 per cent in the past six months. The number of first-time buyer products has collapsed 31 per cent to 1,225. Moneysupermarket analyst Clare Francis said: “I think we’re back to the stage where fundamentally banks and building societies are still nervous and would prefer to lend to those with more security and an established credit history. “It doesn’t look as though the Funding for Lending scheme is going to be the secret ingredient to overcoming all the problems in the mortgage market.”

ITV’S £100m BID FOR PREM ROLE
ITV is planning to work with BT on producing its coverage of live Premier League games next season. The broadcaster will tender for the £100million, three-year contract in the coming weeks. It already supplies English-language commentary for Al-Jazeera Sports. A spokesman said: “It’s something we’re looking at.” BT has bagged the rights to screen 38 matches a season from 2012-2013 through its BT VISION pay-TV arm.

Goals offer kicked out
A £73MILLION bid for five-a-side operator GOALS SOCCER CENTRES was thrown out yesterday — sending the shares down 20 per cent. Canada’s ONTARIO TEACHERS PENSION PLAN only won the backing of 71.4 per cent of Goals shareholders, missing the 75 per cent target. Analysts said the defeat was almost unprecedented. Simon French at PANMURE said: “We cannot remember a similar instance where shareholders voted down a firm bid with no alternative offer.” Goals shares plunged 29p to 116, far below the 144p per share offer. Its chief exec Keith Rogers would have made £6million from his shares. He was also promised a 47 per cent pay rise.

STAGECOACH boss Sir Brian Souter is running into a bust-up with the City — days after driving Olympic legend Usain Bolt. Chief exec Sir Brian said yesterday he was moving upstairs to become chairman in May, breaching corporate governance guidelines. The row comes after the millionaire, 58, got behind the wheel of one of his own buses ferrying athletes and spectators between London 2012 venues. He got the shock of his life when Jamaican speedster Bolt, left, hopped aboard. A source said: “He wanted to show solidarity with staff. But he lucked out with Bolt — how many people can say they’ve had HIM on their bus?”

BOLT FOR BUS BOSS

Drink rise brewing

BREWING giant HEINEKEN warned yesterday of more booze price rises ahead due to spiralling inflation. The Olympics sponsor expects its costs to increase by 8 per cent worldwide this year. A spokesman said: “Prices are reviewed yearly. Clearly they take into account input costs and Government duty.” Half-year profits rose 4.3 per cent to £734million — due only to the strength of recent acquisitions. UK volumes so far in 2012 are down, with Strongbow and Bulmers ciders hit by poor weather and increased competition. Heineken said it was confident of completing its £3billion bid for control of Tiger Beer maker ASIA PACIFIC BREWERIES.

THE world’s biggest mining company sparked fresh fears about the global economy yesterday by axing a £17BILLION project. BHP BILLITON blamed soaring costs and weak metals prices as it shelved the Olympic Dam mine expansion in Southern Australia. It would have created the world’s biggest uranium mine. Boss Marius Kloppers said: “It became clear that the right decision for the company was to continue studies to develop a less capital intensive option to replace the underground mine.” The move came as BHP revealed a 25 per cent drop in full-year profits to £15billion — and froze ALL new project spending for 2013. Mining companies have been clobbered by a slowdown in once-buoyant Chinese demand for coal, nickel and aluminium.

SONY STAFF’S GAME OVER
SONY PlayStation is axing its Liverpool development studio — an operation that dates back to the beginnings of computer games. Sony PS European chief Michael Denny visited the studios yesterday to tell the 100 workers. The site started in 1984 as Psygnosis and was among the pioneers in games for the ZX Spectrum and Commodore computers. Sony bought it in 1993 and went on to develop games such as WipEout, Formula One and Colony Wars. The firm said focusing investment on other studios would “put it in a stronger position to offer the best possible content to consumers”.

HANG on there, Iain Duncan Smith, before you accuse the BBC of “peeing all over” British industry”. It’s very difficult to make light of 2.5million people on the dole and a no-growth economy, or to laugh off rail fare increases over the rate of inflation every year. And it’s also heartbreaking watching our young boys come home in bodybags. So it isn’t the

BBC that peed on anyone — it’s the Tory party that have failed to keep their promises. And now, Iain, there’s no one left to blame but the catastrophic Coalition Government that peed on us!

The page where you tell Britain what you think
is just another example of our softtouch society where the honest man is made a victim and the criminals and drug addicts are given a lavish life which they fritter away. Instead of punishing the people who are truly disabled, weed out the liars and stop drug users claiming disability benefits. Being a drug addict is not a disability — it’s a choice!

not all the people on jobseeker’s allowance are not willing to work. What’s more, they have reduced my benefit to a whole £36 a week, to pay mortgage, utilities, food and drink. Please give me a job — I can do it. I will even try to be a MP if that is required.

IT was so sad to hear about Tony Scott.

CAREER BUILDING BLOCKS
MOST Brits believe learning a trade – rather than going to university – is the safest route to a career. Less than a quarter of people now think a university education is the best way to get a job, a poll reveals. Instead, 45 per cent of parents encourage their children to learn a trade, while a further quarter thought youngsters should take up an apprenticeship. The Federation Of Master Builders, who conducted the study, have launched the Apprentice Of The Year Award, where the winner pockets £1,000 and a further cash prize goes to the employer. To enter, see fmb.org.uk/MBOYAwards – the closing date is September 30, 2012.

DYSLEXIC? Then don’t struggle with an office job, try a trade. The Plumbing Academy is urging people who may have reading and spelling difficulties to consider careers in gas, electrics, and plumbing. The centre is experienced in teaching students with different learning styles and provides extra coaching to pass trade qualifications. Dyslexic Alex Damski, from Crawley, West Sussex, who left school without qualifications and did a string of minimum wage jobs, decided to retrain at the academy. He now works installing

A TRADE TO TAP INTO
bathrooms and boilers in homes and offices and is planning to work on oil refineries to make even more money. Alex, 30, said: “Having no qualifications is the worst thing as you may want to work but it makes you unemployable. I told the Academy about my dyslexia and they were very understanding. “I did find it hard, there’s lots of memory work and maths involved, but once you’ve learnt it, you’ve got it for life.” See plumbingacademy.co.uk for more details. The next intake date is Monday, September 3.

THE Olympics inspired a generation of kids to try sport – but it also inspired a generation of bosses to let staff work flexibly. A huge 64 per cent of companies that tried flexible working during the Games are now planning to change their working practices, according to a study. More than 75 per cent saw no drop in

FLEXI WORKS

production and 55 per cent say staff can be just as productive when working at home. Jo Williams from Brother, who conducted the research, said: “By working around short-term disruptions with no impact on productivity, businesses opened themselves up to greater flexibility in managing staff.”

Crimping had proved to be recession-proof, with Brits splashing out £5.25billion on tending their tresses last year. The number of salons continues to rise with 34,000 hairdressers and 3,000 barber shops now lining UK streets. The hairdressing industry employs around 245,000 people — but salons are short of 14,000 staff, according to the latest report from L’Oréal Professionnel. While some youngsters may be put off by low

entry-level pay, wages at the top end of the scale are in six figures. Vincent Mercier, managing director of L’Oréal Professional Products said: “Hairdressing can offer so many people an incredibly vibrant career because there is something for everyone. “To do well at hairdressing you have to be a real people person with a creative flair — and once qualified, the opportunities are endless.” While many experienced crimpers go on to open their own salons, an increasing number are

going into teaching, working at fashion shows or even on film sets. L’Oréal have introduced the UK’s first Foundation Degree Course in salon business management with the University of Greenwich. Vincent adds: “Hairdressing constantly tops the list of high satisfaction jobs here in the UK and, if you are really good at it, you’ll almost always be in work.” lFind jobs by checking trade titles such as Hairdressers Journal or see hair-recruitment.com/ or hairdressingjobs.org.uk/. Many salons advertise roles in the shop window.

TWO in five working Brits under 30 now earn more than their parents, a new study has found. The most common salary bracket for under 30s is earning £26-£30k per year, topping the national average of £27,000. Mark Pearson, chairman of MyVoucherCodes.co.uk who conducted the study, said: “Everyone automatically assumes that your pay increases with age, but clearly that isn’t the case for many people. “To see that some young adults are earning more than one or both of their parents is an eye-opener. “People should always aspire to do well. If there comes a point in their life when they end up earning more than their parents, I think it’s safe to say they are doing OK.”

MATTHEW Sutcliffe is artistic director at Westrow salon in Leeds. He joined the industry straight from school, working for a local salon and then for two years in Spain before joining Westrow. Matthew, 29, said: “Whether it’s the

creative or business side you are interested in you can enjoy a career path that offers so many benefits and experiences. “My day can involve anything from working on a photoshoot, teaching, prepping for a show, working backstage at London Fashion Week or working on cli-

ents in the salon. The key qualities hairdressers need are adaptability, creativity and enthusiasm. “You need to be motivated, driven, hardworking and tenacious as well as being creative. You will also get professional qualifications as you train. “Living up to people’s

expectations can be challenging – you have to be on your game, always on the ball, learning new techniques and hopefully inspiring people. “So never dismiss hairdressing as an option – it’s a creative career path where the opportunities are endless.”

SERGIO AGUERO limped off, Daniel Agger saw red, not one of the top-six selected strikers found the back of the net . . . it was a shocking start for many Dream Team managers.

By DAVE WARD

But while the big guns struggled to make a mark in the opening round of Premier League fixtures, Swansea newboy Michu and Fulham debutant Mladen Petric bagged 38 points between them. Chelsea’s Eden Hazard and Arsenal summer signing Santi Cazorla both look great value at £4m in the No 1 fantasy football game following their Star Man

accolades. Robin van Persie surged in popularity with 62,000 managers bringing in the new Manchester United striker at the last minute. But he had little chance to shine on Monday as Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini grabbed the headlines, the winner and the Star Man award. Liverpool and Newcastle are playing tonight and their Europa League playoffs WILL count for Dream Team points. If the opening weekend did not go to plan for your side or you needed a round of games to fire up your football buzz, it

is not too late to get involved. You can still pick two additional teams for just £10 at dreamteamfc.com, join mini-leagues with your friends and compete for a share of our gigantic £500,000 prize pool. Enter by 12.30pm on Saturday to guarantee maximum points from this weekend’s fixtures. You can also download our FREE iPhone and Android apps to keep up-todate on the go.

SHIROCCO STAR was runner-up in the Oaks at Epsom and the Irish version at The Curragh. She has similar form to The Fugue but is better value and could easily improve on faster ground. Count your Blessings and your cash in the opener. BLESSINGTON was a nice winner at Goodwood. He will be contesting Group races soon but it’s no surprise John Gosden goes for this rich sales race first. Rocky Ground is the big danger. He won by four lengths on his debut at Yarmouth and was unsuited by the small field when turned over at odds-on at Newmarket last month. Newbury Super Sprint hero Body And Soul is not to be underestimated, while Hototo, Annunciation and Liber are in with a shout. Newfangled will be a warm order after storming away with the Albany at Royal Ascot. But both her wins have come on soft and she has to prove she copes with faster conditions. PEARL SEA can upset the hot favourite. She chased home subsequent Group 3 scorer Certify at Newmarket in July before breaking her duck with an impressive Goodwood win. Badr Al Badoor beat my fancy at Doncaster but will do well to confirm the form having been off since. Rosdhu Queen is another to consider after her Listed win at Newbury on Friday. ANDERIEGO can complete a hattrick of courseand-distance wins. He has thrived since stepping up to a mile and had plenty up his sleeve last time. Royal Hunt Cup winner Prince Of Johanne loves these big handicaps. He should go well despite climbing the weights. Lady Macduff might be best of Mark Johnston’s trio but last year’s hero Navajo Chief prefers softer ground. S H I R O C C O STAR can blow her rivals away. She split Was and The Fugue when beaten just a neck in the Oaks and has since hit the frame in the Ribblesdale and the Irish Oaks. Hughie Morrison’s filly has been held back by getting work-ed up before her races but is growing up and this faster ground is in her favour. The Fugue was unlucky in the Oaks after losing her position when hampered at a crucial stage. But she only just caught Shirroco Star for second at Ascot. John Gosden’s hope has since landed the Nassau at Goodwood when Was filled third place. She won the Musidora here and stays this trip but has only similar claims to Shirroco Star and is a much shorter price.

Now stand by for a Last Tango in Paris from Sir Henry Cecil’s superstar in the Arc de Triomphe at Longchamp. That could be Frankel’s final race. Ladbrokes offer 1-2 he makes a winning French farewell. In the race where Brigadier Gerard met with his only defeat in 18 runs 40 years ago and on his first attempt at 10 furlongs, Tom Queally sent Frankel to the front two furlongs out and he cruised home by an effortless seven lengths from Farhh. St Nicholas Abbey was a nose further back in third. On this showing Frankel, who took his career earnings past £2million, could definitely win at a mile and a half. Channel 4 pundit and Sun columnist John Francome enthused: “He could win the Arc or the six-furlong Haydock Sprint. “I have never seen anything like him.” Frankel is not entered for the Arc. But Khalid Abdullah’s racing manager Teddy Grimthorpe said: “Henry decided not to put him in the Arc but after the way he won the International we will have to talk about it. “Ultimately, it will be the Prince’s decision. “He could easily be supplemented. As is usual with Henry when we mentioned it to him after the race he said the horse will tell us where it would be best to run him next.” Abdullah, whose Dancing Brave was one of the greatest Arc winners in 1986, smiled: “I had not thought of the Arc. “But if Henry thought it was a good idea I would give him my backing.” Ice-cool Queally, who was sitting as motionless as a policeman over three furlongs out, said: “I could hear the crowd yelling ‘Go on Tom’ but Frankel was so relaxed and in a perfect rhythm. “He has been trained by a great man and everybody around him has helped create

THE REST NOWHERE . . . as Frankel skips clear
a remarkable horse. The fact that he never had a smack as a twoyear-old may also have helped.” Farhh’s trainer Saeed bin Suroor said: “My horse has tried very hard, but he has finished second again. “As we knew before, the winner is in a different class to everything else. ria the sight of Cecil (left, with the wonder horse) making his first racecourse appearance since Royal Ascot was a sad glimpse of a man who has so bravely fought cancer since 2006.

Padraig hopes to Nic a spot
By DAVID FACEY

If Colsaerts finishes in the top two at the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles, starting today, he will push struggling Martin Kaymer out of Europe’s top 10 automatic places. That would leave Kaymer chasing a wild card alongside Harrington (left), who is at least trying to impress at the FedEx Cup play-off in America. The other wild card is reportedly earmarked for Ian Poulter.

PADRAIG HARRINGTON’S hopes of a seventh Ryder Cup bow rest with Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts.

Joaquim Rodriguez finished safely in the bunch on the fifth stage of the Tour of Spain. German John Degenkolb of Argos-Shimano clinched the stage win on a photo finish at Logrono — but Froome clung on to second overall after seven flat laps of the 40km circuit. His Sky team-mate Mark Cavendish could not contest the sprint finish on the opening day of the Tour of Denmark after he was involved in a mass pile-up two miles from the finish.

KEVIN PIETERSEN is planning to offer a complete apology to Andrew Strauss for the texts he sent about the England captain.

JOHN ETHERIDGE
— you will always be viewed as a bit of an intruder. “It takes a lot to overcome that and it can often depend on the player’s personality. But someone like Jonathan Trott has hardly batted an eyelid — so it depends on how you handle the situation. “It may be a longish road for Kevin but people do forgive and forget eventually. He may have to spend some time on the sidelines so things blow over and then gradually work his way back perhaps over a 12-month period. “Kevin still has so much to offer as an international cricketer and there’s no way he should leave England in this way.

THE RISE ’N FALL OF KP

Under current rules, athletes get top-tier funding if they make the top eight, or final, at big events. But despite six medals, including four golds at London 2012, many of the team could lose their funding. One athlete affected by the new system is Martyn Rooney (left), who failed to reach the 400m final. He said: “I’ve got to redeem myself over the next couple of years.”

Pietersen will plead for forgiveness when he meets Strauss — and hopes it will be the first step in his reconciliation with England.

Career

“He must try to finish his career on a good note. He needs to try to resolve the situation and find some common ground. “In South Africa, some people really like Kevin and others don’t — Kevin is that sort of person wherever he goes.” The Aussies joined the debate when coach Mickey Arthur insisted England had done the correct thing by dumping Pietersen. Arthur, a former coach of South Africa, said: “They say trust and reputation takes a year to two years to build and you can lose it in two minutes. I think that’s where England are with KP now. “They have dealt with it in the best possible way. The way they’ve handled it has been clinical and ruthless but it has been very good. There’s no one guy that’s bigger than the team.” England play Australia in back-to-back Ashes series in 2013. Pietersen has told his county Surrey he is available to play for them for the rest of the season. j.etheridge@the-sun.co.uk

Lunt pays dad debt
By GARY CARTER

LUNT . . . determined

SHAUN LUNT hopes to give father Peter what he has craved for years — a Challenge Cup winners’ medal from his son. The Leeds hooker has established himself in the Rhinos’ side since joining on loan from Huddersfield. It is a far cry from travelling in the car with his dad from their Cumbrian base as he tried to make it in rugby league.

Perfect

So a winners’ medal after Saturday’s clash with Warrington would be the perfect repayment. Lunt, 25, said: “I give everything to my dad as he’s pretty much the reason for where I am today. “He drove me round the country and spent a fortune. He always said: ‘All I want in return is a Challenge Cup winners’ medal.’” Lunt also wants a Wembley win to honour his aunt, Christine Cleeland, who died last month.

COLIN KAZIM-RICHARDS ignited Rovers’ season — but their smallest crowd in 19 years was there to see it.

By ROSS GREGORY

The striker, on a seasonlong loan from Olympiakos, was watched by just 13,562 as he struck the winner.

BLANKS A LOT . . . fans stay away

But underpressure boss Steve Kean’s joy was marred as Kazim-Richards, 25, limped off

and is unlikely to face Leicester at the weekend. Kean said: “He is a doubt for Saturday. He strained the outside of his knee. “I’m told the last time we were in the Championship season tickets were moving at a slow rate, too. “But I hope, with a few more wins, the fans who are a bit slow in renewing will come back.” Blackburn’s supporters are still unhappy with Kean after a disastrous last season, which saw their 11-year spell in the top flight end. They stayed away in their droves and for the first 60

minutes it looked like a wise decision as Hull posed big problems for Rovers. But then Kean sent on Nuno Gomes and Bruno Ribeiro to breathe life into the home side. Summer-signing Gomes set up fellow new boy Kazim-Richards for a scrappy goal on his home debut in the 77th minute. He netted after Marcus Olsson fluffed an effort from close range. Hull manager Steve Bruce said: “I think the way the game went we had the better chances. “But if you don’t take them then it will always be a frustrating night.”

HUDDLESTONE . . . loan deal

So Hudd to keep it a secret
By GRAEME BRYCE

The Toon’s Europa League adventure starts tonight with the first leg of their qualifier with Atromitos in Greece.

ALAN PARDEW knows Newcastle must be going places — because Jose Mourinho has been sending him ‘good-luck’ texts.

Downing

TOM HUDDLESTONE’S imminent loan switch to Stoke was Tweet music to the club’s fans. Tottenham midfielder Huddlestone turned up at the club’s Clayton Wood training ground for a secret medical, prior to signing a year-long loan deal. But unknown to the 25-year-old, the world was already in on it after Pennant broke the news on Twitter! He tweeted: “I walked in training & got a shock saw my friend Tom Huddlestone... On loan till end of season good signing.”

Bemused

It has been five years since Newcastle were mixing it on the Continent. But last season’s amazing Premier League surge to fifth has given the Geordies fresh hope of returning to football’s top table — and even the Special One at Real Madrid has taken serious notice. Boss Pards said: “When you look at the career paths of some managers, they find European football just comes to them quickly. “For me it has been a longer process. I think I’m ready and looking forward to it. “I had a text from Jose Mourinho on Tuesday, ‘Wishing you all the best’, and it’s things like that which make you realise things are good. We are getting noticed. “I don’t usually get texts from him, perhaps the fact we are in Europe and did well last year is part of that. “It’s nice for everyone that other managers are looking out at us. I think we are doing a good job.” If Pards had predicted European football would be back on the menu when he was appointed 20 months ago, the men in white coats would quickly have whisked him away.

Rodgers’ Reds face Hearts in a Europa League play-off first-leg clash tonight, with a place in the competition proper at stake.

BRENDAN RODGERS has admitted he needs more new faces if Liverpool are to mount a serious assault on trophies.

By PHIL THOMAS

Former Leeds star Harry Kewell was also at Stoke’s training complex. He had turned up expecting to hold talks about a move to the Britannia — the only problem was no-one had informed Stoke! A Stoke official explained Kewell “turned up out of the blue, wasn’t expected, had a fiveminute conversation with our manager and left.” The Aussie ace has been looking for a new club since leaving Melbourne Victory and returning to the UK in June to be with his wife, Sheree, whose mother is in poor health. But it is unlikely Kewell will be a Potter by the time the transfer window closes on August 31. But he can sign after the deadline as he is a free agent.

Surprising

Al takes the rap

ALAN PARDEW has formally pleaded guilty to an FA misconduct charge — after he pushed linesman Peter Kirkup. The Newcastle boss lost his rag during the 2-1 win against Tottenham at St James’s Park. Pards had until 4pm yesterday to respond to the FA. And he last night said: “We have to do the procedure that has to take place — and we’re following that through. “We are doing a letter on my call on what I thought happened at the weekend. “But we have pleaded guilty and we will go to see the FA to see what punishment is going to come to fruition.”

Pardew may be angry with a schedule which will see the Magpies return to England less than 24 hours before their lunchtime clash with Chelsea on Saturday. But he admitted: “I’d have found it surprising had anyone said we’d be in Europe by now. “I would have thought we would have to win one of the cups. We are very proud we have done it through the league. “I got into Europe with West Ham through a cup final, we drew probably the best team in Palermo. “This time around it doesn’t look quite so tough. We have still got to win it, though.” Demba Ba, Shola Ameobi, Fabricio Coloccini and Chieck Tiote did not travel yesterday along with crocked young guns Sammy Ameobi and Haris Vuckic, both 20, — ruining plans to blood the best Toon youngsters. Papiss Cisse is set to lead the line with keeper Steve Harper, 37, playing his first game for 12 months as Tim Krul is rested. But Pardew warned: “Because of the injures we could see some playing three times a week. It’s not fair. “Whatever result we get here we can’t jeopardise Chelsea. We have to make sure we have enough in the locker and prepare for the second leg when we do have time.” Harper, in the last year of his current Toon deal, is delighted to have been given a chance. He said: “Last year I had a few niggly injuries and maybe the fire had gone out a little bit. “But on the first morning of preseason, the gaffer said, ‘If you want it, it is still there for you’ and he re-lit the fire again.” s.brenner@the-sun.co.uk

But as much as the Kop chief is desperate to bring another Euro crown to Anfield — as well as finish in the Champions League slots — he knows his squad currently lacks the depth to do so. Rodgers said: “I had a target list of players I wanted to bring in but that was always conditional because of the monies that had been paid out here. “The club are working very hard behind the scenes to manage that process to allow us to get some players in. “But in terms of the depth, it is nowhere near where I would want it to be — we have a very small squad. “I can’t wave a magic wand to bring players in and get

players out but there is still a bit of time left. Hopefully, come the end of August, we’ll be ready to go on with the group we want.” Rodgers’ big problem has been offloading fringe players who were locked into big deals, with Alberto Aquilani — now at Fiorentina — on £6.5million a year alone. After getting Dirk Kuyt, Maxi Rodriguez, Fabio Aurelio and Craig Bellamy’s wages off the books, he desperately needs to buy. But there is no sign of previous target, Manchester City’s Adam Johnson, ending up at Anfield. And although Arsenal’s dithering appears to have reopened the door for attempts to get Real Madrid’s Nuri Sahin on loan, the Gunners remain favourites. But at least Rodgers is increasingly confident that Danish centre-back Daniel Agger, a target for City, will still be at Anfield once the transfer window closes.

The Liverpool rookie, 22, arrived at Anfield last summer in a £20million deal from Sunderland. And despite being rated one of the country’s best young midfielders, his Kop career has not got out of first gear. Yet

JORDAN HENDERSON reckons his dismal first 12 months on Merseyside turned him into a man.

Nokidding for Jordan
By PHIL THOMAS

Henderson is convinced his torrid year will make him a better player — especially with new boss Brendan Rodgers giving him more chances in his favoured role in the middle. Henderson insisted: “There were a lot of positives last season, but a lot of ups and downs. I learned a lot — I became a man. “I’ve had plenty of lows but there were highs. I just have to use that experience and hopefully this can be a better year. “Every player is disappointed if they don’t play well, but you have to keep working hard and training hard.

Doubt

GROWING PAINS . . . Rodgers wants to add depth to his squad but has been left frustrated

Rodgers added: “Like every player in the group, if someone comes in with a big offer then that might be out of my hands. “But I have never thought that I was going to lose Daniel. He is fantastic in how he plays and, secondly, he doesn’t want to go which is great news for everyone.” Liverpool will be without skipper Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez, both of whom did not travel to Scotland with Sunday’s visit of Manchester City in mind. Martin Skrtel and Glen Johnson are also missing while new boy Oussama Assaidi, snapped up from Heerenveen last week, is ineligible for Europa League action until the group stages. That will hand a first start of the season to striker Andy Carroll, whose own future remains in doubt, if he shakes off a slight hamstring pull. p.thomas@thesun.co.uk

GROWN UP . . . Jordan Henderson

“Whatever the manager asks you to do, make sure you do that and give 100 per cent. “I have to work hard and get into the team first.” Henderson, on the bench for Saturday’s opening day loss at West Brom, will return for tonight’s Europa League play-off first leg at Hearts. And the chance of Euro glory means the Reds midfielder is relishing the trip to Edinburgh. He added: “When you come to a massive club like Liverpool, you want to be playing European football. I’m sure it will be a great experience. “Reaching the final would be great for us.”

finally broke his silence by taking a potshot at the Geordies. He said: “I need a minimum of three strikers. Once the window shuts, that is it until January.

TOTS’ TIPS
LIVERPOOL will surely get their season up and pumping at Hearts in the Europa League qualifying play-off. Spurs went to Tynecastle at this stage last season and won 5-0. Kop boss Brendan Rodgers will ring the changes after the 3-0 defeat at West Brom. Andy Carroll must get a chance and the big striker is 6-4 with Paddy Power, BetVictor and Boyles to net at any time in the first leg.

this summer and I have not replaced them, as of yet. That is the reality of where we are.” West Ham were also KO’d in a bid to take England star Carroll, 23, on loan, and Rodgers is adamant any bidder can forget about nicking him on the cheap. He added: “Absolutely no chance — and certainly Newcastle. They got £35million for him last year. To even consider wanting to take him on loan is a liberty really.”

Alex eyes up Zorro
BY CARL LONG

HERRERA . . . on the move

ALEX FERGUSON is trying to hijack Liverpool’s attempt to sign Mexican star Hector Herrera. The Manchester United boss is ready to match a Liverpool offer of £10million for the Pachuca midfielder, nicknamed Zorro. He was the inspiration behind Mexico’s goldmedal triumph at the Olympics earlier this month when they shocked Brazil in the final. Andres Fassi, Pachuca’s sporting director, said: “There is official interest. We have a document. “We know he’s going to emigrate to England. Manchester United and Liverpool have talked to us. “We want him to continue with Pachuca. But when he decides to leave, the club will give him the opportunity to do so.” Herrera, 22, is sidelined with an ankle injury picked up at London 2012.

AZPILICUETA . . . pursuit

By PAUL JIGGINS

CHELSEA’S pursuit of Marseille full-back Cesar Azpilicueta looks about to pay off. He was not included in the French club’s squad for tonight’s Europa League clash with FC Sheriff Tiraspol. Azpilicueta, 22, has been linked with the European champions virtually all year and reports in France claimed an agreement was reached over a transfer fee late last night. The Spaniard, who started Marseille’s opening two league games of the season, looks set to sign a five-year deal at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea will be shelling out something in the region of £7million for Azpilicueta, who played one game for Spain in the London Olympics. Last night Chelsea stuck to their policy of not commenting on transfer speculation.

The contract will keep the lifelong Red at his boyhood idols until at least June 2016. Welbeck has committed his future to United just days after boss Alex Ferguson splashed out £22million to bring in Robin van Persie from Arsenal.

England striker Welbeck put pen to paper on a new fouryear contract at Manchester United yesterday.

DANNY WELBECK says he chose to stay at Old Trafford — because he wants to learn from the best.

Learning

The Dutchman’s arrival could see Welbeck getting less game time this season than he might hope for. But the Old Trafford trainee, 21, insists there was never any danger of him leaving to ply his trade elsewhere. He said: “Playing for United is all I’ve ever wanted to do — it’s the club I’ve supported all my life. “I’m learning all the time from the best manager in the game and I’m keen for that to continue alongside the world-class players in the squad. “I cannot wait for the challenge of the new season to play my part in helping the team compete for trophies.” Welbeck spent the season before last on loan at Sunderland. But he stayed at The

Theatre of Dreams last term and played a greater role in Fergie’s plans. That earned him recognition from England and he helped Roy Hodgson’s Three Lions squad reach the last eight of this summer’s Euros. He started United’s opening night defeat at Everton on Monday before being replaced by Van Persie with 22 minutes of the game remaining. Welbeck has scored 17 goals in 64 appearances for United since his

TIPS . . . Welbeck and Nani with Fergie

first appearance against Middlesbrough in the League Cup in September 2008. Ferguson said: “Danny has been with the club since he was eight years old and has made fantastic progress in the last couple of years — first out on loan and last year as a regular in the first team. “He has become an important player at international level as well, as the maturity of his performances at the European Championship finals showed. “This year is another important one for him. He has a bright future ahead of him.” p.jiggins@thesun.co.uk

Gunners will have Ed-ache
EDUARDO has slammed Arsenal for selling Robin van Persie and Alex Song — and fears they will not finish in the top four this season. The Croatia hitman, who now plays for Shakhtar Donetsk, believes his former club could take a long time to recover from losing their two best players once again. Eduardo said: “It’s a big mistake to sell them — they were the most important players last season. “When you lose two players like that, your chance of finishing in the top four will be less. “Every year it’s similar — they lose players, buy players, make them class players and the next year they sell again.”

EDUARDO . . . Wenger rap

1989: West Ham’s Paul Ince posed in a Manchester United shirt well before he left for Old Trafford. 2006: United and Chelsea both claimed they had signed John Obi Mikel from Lyn Oslo before he finally joined the Blues. 2009: Cristiano Ronaldo accused United of treating him like a ‘slave’ before he signed for Real Madrid. 2011: Cesc Fabregas joined Barcelona after three long years of trying. 2012: AWOL Carlos Tevez returned to Manchester City after being linked with FIVE clubs.

Modric is set to complete his switch from Spurs before the transfer window closes. But the Spaniards were left red-faced as the page dedicated to the Croat appeared to jump the gun. Officials acted quickly to take it down after a link was leaked on Twitter — but hundreds of surfers managed to access it before it was removed. Madrid swiftly killed off talk of an imminent announcement and privately insisted it was the work of hackers. It was hugely embarrassing for the Spanish giants who have been briefing the local media that they are confident they have got their man. In his ‘profile’ Modric was

The £35million deal with Tottenham has yet to be finalised — but on Tuesday night a full profile of Modric was on one of Real’s web pages.

depicted as a Tottenham player between 2008-12 and as a Real star from this year. Although Madrid privately insist a deal has been agreed in principle, it is believed the form of payment is still being discussed.

Target

Talks are believed to centre around how much the Spaniards will pay up front and how much will be linked to success on the pitch. That coupled with the fact Tottenham have been locked in discussions over a number of deals has delayed the official announcement of the agreement that Modric is leaving for Madrid. Following the departures of Michael Dawson and

Sebastien Bassong, manager Andre Villas-Boas will need cover at centre-half. Talk of Ricardo Carvalho being part of the Modric agreement had resurfaced, although Madrid have now agreed a loan deal with QPR subject to personal terms. Modric has been reluctant to say anything about his future for fear of upsetting Spurs chairman Daniel Levy. Madrid chief Jose Mourinho last night fuelled speculation that even Nuri Sahin (below) could be loaned to Tottenham to bolster their midfield as Modric goes the other way. Midfielder Sahin has been the target of loan bids from Liverpool and Arsenal. The Special One did not speak about Modric in his prematch Press conference before tonight’s Spanish Supercup firstleg clash with Barcelona at the Nou Camp. But he said: “I don’t want anything in particular w i t h Sahin. “I want

him to play, I want him to go on loan from Madrid. “I like the option of the Premier League because it can give him certain elements in his game that he doesn’t have at the moment. “But where he goes is all the same to me. “Really. It’s not true that I want him to go to one club instead of another. It’s the same for me wherever he goes. “I just want the situation to be sorted as soon as possible because it is the best thing for him.”

Hope

Real want to see how Sahin progresses and either take him back or sell him for around £14m next summer. Arsenal were confident they would get their man last week as a replacement for Alex Song. But a deal has stalled, giving Liverpool and Spurs hope they might get the talented Turk. Sahin, 24, favours a move to Arsenal because they are in the Champions League but is also seeking guarantees of first-team action. a.kastrinakis@the-sun.co.uk

KI’S SET TO SEAL A SWANS SUNG

WOLVES have landed a £24million windfall after Steven Fletcher and Matt Jarvis finally bid farewell to Molineux. West Ham boss Sam Allardyce’s perseverance paid off last night when the Hammers sealed a £10million deal to take former England winger Matt Jarvis to Upton Park. Wolves played hardball and it took the Hammers four bids before meeting their valuation.

Terms

Allardyce believes Jarvis, 26, can rediscover the form which saw him win an England cap against Ghana last year and become a huge favourite at Upton Park. The deal will also hand his former club Gillingham an unexpected £1.4m from his move in 2007. Striker Fletcher, 25, was on Wearside yesterday, tying up personal terms with Sunderland after a £14m fee was agreed. Fletcher’s talent has never been in question but his temperament has been suspect and he is currently frozen out at international level after falling out with Scotland boss Craig Levein.

The Togo striker trained under new Spurs boss Andre Villas-Boas for the first time after completing his £5million switch from Manchester City. Adebayor, 28, bagged 17 Premier League goals for Spurs last season during his loan spell from City. The hitman’s haul helped the North Londoners finish fourth — but it was not good enough to fire them into the Champions League. They missed out when Chelsea claimed a shock win over Bayern Munich to lift the European Cup. But Adebayor is bracing himself for another battle for a place in the top four. He said: “Last year was quite intense. “And this season every game will be difficult as you saw at Newcastle on Saturday. They have a good team. STEVE CLARKE has

top scorer will be back on September 15 to face Stoke. That would mean he would just miss City’s trip to Liverpool on Sunday and the visit of QPR before returning after the international break. Mancini admitted he feared the worst when he saw Aguero tumble. He said: “We were very worried a couple of days ago because we feared he could be out for six months or maybe even more. But I don’t think

Sergio will be out for long. We are hoping he will be back after the international break which is fantastic news.” Midfield a c e Gareth Barry should also return from a groin injury after the internationals. But Micah Richards (ankle) may be out for longer.

The former Chelsea defender has been lined up for a season-long loan from Real Madrid. And the move comes just as Rangers are set to also meet with Tottenham club captain and defender Michael Dawson within the next 48 hours after the clubs agreed a deal around £9million. QPR owner Tony Fernandes is determined to help boss Mark Hughes bolster his defence after a 5-0 hammering at home against Swansea on Saturday. Dawson, 28, was seen surplus to requirements by White Hart Lane chief Andre Villas-Boas.

“Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham and Newcastle will all be fighting for the top four spots. “It’s not going to be easy but as a footballer you just have to keep doing your thing and see what happens at the end of the season.” Tottenham agreed a fee with City for Adebayor more than six weeks ago. But the deal was done only on Tuesday when Adebayor finally reached an agreement with City over his pay-off. He added: “I don’t feel like a new player. I know all the players quite well. “Everyone welcomed me and I’m happy to be back.” p.jiggins@the-sun.co.uk

Both Dawson and Carvalho should be signed in time for QPR’s trip to Norwich on Saturday.

CHELSEA got a huge slice of luck from the officials as they allowed Torres’ goal to stand.

IT was the night Stamford Bridge turned into the Garden of Eden as Chelsea returned to the top.
WE will have to wait until the end of the season before we can answer that one. But how can you sack a caretakermanager after he wins the FA Cup and Champions League? Russian owner Roman Abramovich has a reputation for changing bosses on a whim But even Red Rom would have got slaughtered by the Stamford Bridge faithful had he given Di Matteo the boot.

THE Italian played a slightly more attacking version of his favoured 4-3-3 formation. Ramires, who missed Sunday’s win at Wigan through illness, came in for youngster Ryan Bertrand. The Chelsea boss clearly told his players to get at Reading from the off — just like they did at Wigan. Admittedly, the Blues faded like they did at the DW but at least they had enough to stage a late assault.

Roman Abramovich paid Lille a whopping £32million for Hazard but yesterday, as Chelsea went top for the first time in 519 days, it looked like his best-ever buy. On the day Prince Harry was pictured naked in a Las Vegas hotel room, Hazard laid bare the Royals’ defensive frailties and led his side to a resounding victory. He won the 18th-minute penalty that Frank Lampard converted and even set up Branislav Ivanovic’s 90th-minute strike to round things off nicely. But Blues boss Roberto Di Matteo has ref Lee Mason and his assistant to thank for allowing Fernando Torres’ key third goal to stand when the Spain striker was clearly a yard offside. It broke Reading’s hearts and we can do without many more Premier League matches finishing with the hot favourite getting such a blatant decision at the expense of a massive underdog. Di Matteo has clearly yet to find the right blend despite having some of the best talent in the world at his disposal.

In fact if Eden Hazard carries on like this then comparisons with Blues legend Gianfranco Zola may not be enough.

GETTING A HEAD . . . Reading striker Pavel Pogrebnyak makes it 1-1

From Back Page wants to see a lot of flair play but to win games you need a good balance to it. That’s going to be the challenge.” Chelsea, who won their opener 2-0 at Wigan on Sunday, suffered a scare after Frank Lampard put them 1-0 ahead with an 18th-minute spot-kick. Pavel Pogrebnyak equalised for Reading with a glancing header. Then Blues keeper Petr Cech gifted the visitors a shock 2-1 lead when he allowed Danny Guthrie’s free-kick to squirm in. Royals No 1 Adam Federici then made a similar blunder as Gary Cahill levelled with a speculative 65th-minute shot. Torres looked at least a yard offside as he put the Blues 3-2 in front with nine minutes left.

Champagne

YOU would have to say he needs a new goalkeeper — just look at the way Petr Cech blundered for Reading’s second goal. There were question marks over the big Czech last season. It seems he needs a spot of competition in the Blues squad. Chelsea also look short of quality in attack — of four goals last night, only one came from a striker.

IF they continue to get the luck they had last night, Chelsea’s name will be on the trophy in May. Realistically, though, that’s dreamland. This victory was definitely not the performance of champions. RDM’s men got away with it against the newly-promoted Royals, and they know it. They also know they need to do much better to stay top — and the Manchester clubs will be ready to pounce on any mistakes.

The Italian admitted as much afterwards but also purred about Belgian playmaker Hazard, 21, who was at the centre of attention and at the heart of the action. Early on he won the ball in midfield and burst into the box to collect Juan Mata’s pass — but fired wide with his left foot. Then, on seven minutes, Ramires forced a fine save from Royals stopper Adam Federici when, really, he should have squared to Torres who was ready for the tap-in. And what a shame because the move was sublime with five onetouch passes proving Abramovich’s dream of a champagne Chelsea side is not far off. “Champions of Europe, we know what we are,” sang the Bridge faithful. And, after 18 minutes, they got the goal they had been waiting for when Hazard worked his way into the box and sold a dummy to Chris Gunter, who brought him down for a stonewall penalty. Up stepped Lampard to plant it past Federici. But, all of a sudden, Reading were level after 25 minutes. Gareth McCleary crossed for Pavel Pogrebnyak, who nipped ahead of John Terry and powered a precise header past Petr Cech. Four minutes later, it got even worse for the hosts. Skipper Terry was lucky to escape a booking for a blatant trip on Jobi McAnuff, who had flown past Ivanovic on the edge of the box. Danny Guthrie took the resulting free-kick which bounced harmlessly in front of Cech before the Czech stopper diverted it into his own net. Reading’s very own Russian oligarch Anton Zingarevich and his model wife Katsia were watching from the stands and looked on in disbelief. And if John Obi Mikel had not tracked back to thwart McAnuff

And Branislav Ivanovic netted on the breakaway after keeper Federici had gone upfield for a corner. Di Matteo singled out £32million new-boy Eden Hazard for praise. RDM said: “He has made had an impact — I think him and Juan Mata linked up very well. “He’s finding his feet very quickly, so that is pleasing for us.” Reading boss Brian McDermott was left to rue Torres’ vital goal. He blasted: “I’m gutted the linesman has got that decision wrong on the third goal. He was offside. “He said he’d have a look at it. He can have a look at it. That’s life. “People makes mistakes and he made a mistake tonight — it’s just a shame it was for such a crucial goal because we would definitely have got a point.”

as Ivanovic went missing, it could have been 3-2 to the visitors as punch-drunk Chelsea were trying to regain their composure. Pogrebnyak won virtually every battle with Terry in the first half and England boss Roy Hodgson, watching from the stands, will have no doubt raised an eyebrow. Just before the interval Terry bundled Reading’s Russian giant into the ground, Ian Harte swung in the free-kick and Alex Pearce just failed to nod home. Chelsea struggled but Hazard

never faltered. Before half-time he crossed brilliantly for Torres, who headed wide. Di Matteo gave Oscar his home debut after 56 minutes, taking off the £25million summer signing’s fellow Brazilian Ramires. Shortly after, Oscar forced a diving save from Federici. As desperately as they were trying, Chelsea just could not find a breakthrough. Cue another change, with Daniel Sturridge replacing Mikel. Within seconds Hazard fed

defender Gary Cahill who tried his luck from distance. His effort swerved but this time it was Federici’s turn to push the ball into his own net.

Involved

It was yet another howler for the Reading keeper, four days after he let Michael Kightly’s shot squirm home against Stoke. Royals boss Brian McDermott gave the keeper his full backing but it was a turning point as,

nine minutes from the end, Torres started and ended a move that also involved Mata and Ashley Cole before the No 9 tapped home. Yes, he was offside by a yard. Yes, the ref and his assistant Andy Halliday missed it — but Chelsea were not complaining. Royals boss Brian McDermott said: “I’m gutted the linesman got that decision wrong. It was clearly offside which is really disappointing for us. “It was unfortunate but that’s

life. It’s just a shame he made a mistake on such a crucial goal.” Chelsea still had to survive a late onslaught by brave Reading but they hung on for dear life. Then, at the death, Torres won the ball and released Hazard with Federici up for a Reading corner. Hazard bombed forward and with only Gunter to beat, he set up Ivanovic to tap home. It was Hazard’s fifth assist in two games, including the two penalties he has won. Pure class. a.kastrinakis@the-sun.co.uk

£30m LUIZ BID
From Back Page night’s win over Reading while Chelsea and City tried to thrash out a deal — though the Brazilian centre-back claimed on Twitter he has a knee injury. Chelsea were angered by the Tweet and Luiz has been

fined. Boss Roberto Di Matteo said: “This social media thing is all around us now. We’ll deal with it internally.” Luiz, 25, arrived at Stamford Bridge in a £21m deal from Benfica early in 2011 and became an instant hit with the fans.

EDEN HAZARD has three assists in his first two Prem games for Chelsea. The Belgian provided 16 in Ligue 1 last season, more than any other player.

CHELSEA have now won their opening Prem game at Stamford Bridge in each of the 10 years since Roman Abramovich bought the club in June 2003.

JOSH McEACHRAN is hoping his loan spell at Championship outfit Middlesbrough will kickstart his career. The midfielder, 19, was hailed as one of England’s brightest prospects after breaking into Chelsea’s first-team squad only to see his progress stall. He had a temporary stint at Swansea last season but then spent most of that on the bench. McEachran said: “I need to be playing Saturday, Tuesday, Saturday, Tuesday and hopefully that will happen here. “I just want first-team football and Middlesbrough play great football. “I’m sure the management at Chelsea will be keeping in touch. “They will send people up to watch me.”
