  • 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.

I have no idea why

  • 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

  • Sick pervert Rolf Harris to spend fortune on hideaway home – from INSIDE prison cell

    “He spent many happy times there staying with friends and said he would love to buy a secret place in a secluded spot." The source claimed Harris was making the plans with his loyal wife and daughter Bindi in mind.

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.

Tory backbencher Andrew Bridgen escalated hostilities in the party by saying a challenge to the Prime Minister’s leadership was “highly likely” after 23 June. A vote of confidence in Mr Cameron’s leadership could be held if 50 MPs called for it, but half of the parliamentary party would need to vote to depose him as leader.

The second, an extraordinarily strong, independent and resourceful woman who can do “perfectly well on my own, thank you”. And the third, a very private, self-deprecating, vulnerable soul, desperately wanting to please everyone and upset none.   “She’s going to have an MRI scan and she wants you to be there.” I arrived 30 minutes later, with my heart pounding, to find the third incarnation of my wife draped in an unflattering hospital gown looking lost, frightened and fighting back the tears.
