  • Mum in Preston North End shirt row claims she has reported incident and social media abuse to police

    The mum at the centre of the Preston North End shirt row claims she has reported the incident - and subsequent social media abuse - to the police. In another bizarre twist to the tale, Vickie Timbrell told the M.E.N. she was unwilling to speak about the incident any longer, having ‘reported the whole thing’ to the police’. The M.E.N. has contacted Greater Manchester Police to find out the details of the complaint. Lancashire Police, whose Football Intelligence Unit are understood to be examining the footage, had no information regarding a complaint from Mrs Timbrell.

  • Premier League - Keegan: Sterling not ready to lead

    Former Liverpool striker Kevin Keegan believes Brendan Rodgers was misguided in thinking youngster Raheem Sterling could help fill the void left by Luis Suarez. The 20-year-old was expected to maintain the progress made playing alongside the Uruguay international and Daniel Sturridge last season but things did not pan out as either would have wanted. Injury to Sturridge, which ruled him out of the first five months and last six weeks of the campaign, meant Sterling was pressed into service as Liverpool's main striker.

  • The two women in my 10 per cent - by '90 per cent gay' Stephen Fry

    His homosexuality is a matter of public record – but now Stephen Fry has revealed he is also 'ten per cent' attracted to women. In his new autobiography, the 53-year-old author, actor and broadcaster writes that two women have 'stirred surprising things' in him. One was Sunetra Sastry, the wife of his Blackadder co-star Rowan Atkinson, and the other his Cambridge University contemporary, the novelist Caroline Oulton. 'I am only "90 per cent gay", which is of course pretty damned gay, but every now and again on my path through life I have met a woman in the ten per cent bracket,' Fry writes.

    If ever there was a story of a woman walking eyes wide open into car crash territory, then over the past week we have been watching it as Sally Bercow's marriage to John Bercow breaks down in public. On paper, this is a woman who, as the (most-probably-soon-to-be-former) wife of speaker John Bercow should be highly respected and have opportunity at her feet. What Sally does next is something much of the media is awaiting in eager anticipation. Of course one day Sally Bercow may well consider giving an interview but she shouldn't at the moment.

  • IS 'executes' 20 in Palmyra Roman theatre

    The Islamic State group "executed" 20 men in front of a crowd in the UNESCO-listed Roman theatre of Syria's ancient city of Palmyra on Wednesday, a monitor said. Across the border the jihadists claimed to have abolished when they proclaimed their "caliphate" last year, thousands of Iraqi security forces and paramilitaries deployed across Anbar province.

  • British truckers steer clear of Calais as desperate migrants get more aggressive

    Instead they are driving almost 100 extra miles into Holland to use other ports because they are “terrified for their lives” driving into Calais. Michael Pearson, of Maru International in West Yorkshire, said the current problem was the worst he had seen in 40 years. The Road Haulage Association said drivers have been left feeling vulnerable and called on security to be improved immediately at European ports. The Home Office said more than 40,000 attempts by illegal immigrants to get to the UK had been thwarted in 2014 but drivers say the situation is now far worse than last year.

  • No return to Corrie for Jimi Mistry

    Coronation Street star Jimi Mistry has revealed it had always been the plan for his character to be killed off. Kal Nazir, played by Jimi, was caught up in the fire drama at Victoria Court flats in the ITV soap, where he failed to escape the inferno after waving brand-new fiancee Leanne (Jane Danson) off to safety shortly before a gas canister next to him exploded in the blaze. In the history of Corrie I think it's one of the most dramatic story arcs there's ever been, so to be a part of that was a perfect ending.
