  • 'Tourists go home': Is the party over for Ibiza?

    Although still a minority protest, it points to tensions in Palma de Mallorca and elsewhere in Spain over rising numbers of visitors who are propelling the economy but also disrupting the lives of locals and straining services from transport to water. With tourism accounting for 12 percent of economic output and 16 percent of jobs, Spain can ill afford a backlash. Long a popular beach destination, this year Spain is drawing record numbers of visitors who are shunning destinations where security is a concern, notably Tunisia, Egypt and Turkey.

  • Hot Football Transfer Gossip: Higuain wants Liverpool, Barca want Mata, Man Utd want anyone

    The Napoli striker is a man in demand after scoring 36 goals in 35 league games last season, with Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester United all reportedly queuing up to sign him. The Mirror reports that the 28-year-old Argentine is trying to forcing an exit from Napoli and wants to move to Anfield even though the Reds failed to qualify for Europe - mainly because he wants to play under Jurgen Klopp. Napoli don’t want to let their top scorer go, but the Mirror adds that they would aim to replace him with Everton’s Romelu Lukaku if he does leave.

  • Holiday cottage ‘visitor’ was fake

    Last autumn an inquiry was made to book our cottage in North Wales. I offered a reduced rate of £1,000 for the whole four weeks plus a refundable deposit. The enquirer sent a cheque for €3,333. I thought perhaps it was so much more than asked for because he was prepaying his electricity usage which would be high in the winter. He also sent a photo of his pregnant wife and himself. We paid the cheque into the local HSBC branch and it was credited immediately. I was away for a week. When I returned there was an email from France saying he could not make the holiday now as his wife’s father had been diagnosed with cancer. Would I refund the money less 10pc for the inconvenience caused. Stephanie q

  • 6 Manchester United Players Jose Mourinho Would Be a Fool to Let Go (6 photos)

    ​Jose Mourinho will begin his reign as Manchester United manager against a back drop of frenzied speculation as to which players he will sign and which players he will cut loose. The reality is, the United squad left behind by Louis van Gaal is in relatively good shape and only really needs three of four smart acquisitions in a few different positions to be competing for major honours, while there isn't too much of a job in clearing out deadwood either. Here's a look at six players under...

  • Premium Bonds confusion

    I decided to cash in Premium Bonds of various denominations I have purchased since the Fifties without the success hoped for. Imagine my surprise when, in its reply, NS&I informed me that, since 1990, I have been the holder of a duplicate bond not registered in my name to the value of £300. Also that one bond was not owned by me at all. JC, South Staffordshire Confusion arose following a letter from NS&I stating, “The repayment amount has been reduced because [the] bond… was duplicate and a bond is not registered in your name.” Now I understand that on the repayment form you had listed a block of bonds valued at £300 twice and one block not registered in your name worth £10. I have no idea why q

It then lands perfectly upright on the table – to rapturous applause from the audience. q

  • Three women praised after 'preventing a rape' at a restaurant

    According to Ulrich’s account, Kenyon said: "He pulled her glass toward him, kind of awkwardly, then he took out a little black vial. He opened it up and dropped something in. Then he tried to play it cool, like checking his phone and hiding the vial in his hand and then trying to bring it back down slyly."  Ulrich decided to warn the woman whose drink had apparently been doctored when she visited the toilet. ’Oh My God.’ She said. Shocked, kind of numb, so I babbled ‘Yeah, my girlfriend said she saw him put something in your drink and we had to say something. Woman to know. We had to say something. How well do you know that guy?’ I was expecting to hear 'We just met,’ but I got: q

    We meet at the Langham, the scene of the affair. Sitting on a chic grey sofa in the lobby, Shaw looks around, clearly feeling the weight of being back in this building which seems to hold so many secrets. “It’s as if everything is overprinted with a negative image,” she says, gazing over to the lifts. “Going up the steps the first thing I thought was ‘God, I can remember standing on those steps with Frank’. It’s like there are little ghosts walking about in my head.” Now happily married to her second husband, with two grown-up children, Shaw looks back on that time with great fondness. “It was a very happy time. It felt like a privilege to work at the BBC. I can remember I used to see Jimmy Young q
