  • 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.

  • 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

  • EastEnders: Ian Beale To Have Another Mental Breakdown?

    Ian Beale, played by the wonderful Adam Woodyatt, went a little bit off the rails after his wife Mandy left him and he ended up sporting a lovely bushy beard and living on the streets. Well, it sounds like his breakdown might just have a bit of relevance at last as it has been reported that Ian might have another episode following the stress of dealing with his murderer son, Bobby Beale. Ian’s mental health will no doubt become another big storyline for Adam, who is the longest-serving actor in the BBC soap, starring continuously since it began in February 1985.

  • Hamilton ends long wait with Monaco win

    By Alan Baldwin MONACO (Reuters) - Lewis Hamilton celebrated his first win of the Formula One season at the Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday after Mercedes told team mate Nico Rosberg to move aside and Red Bull wrecked Daniel Ricciardo's chances. While fortune finally favoured the triple world champion after a run of bad luck, championship leader Rosberg finished seventh -- 93.2 seconds behind -- and saw his lead cut to 24 points after six of 21 races. Australian Daniel Ricciardo was runner-up, a botched second pitstop destroying his chances after he started on pole position for the first time, with Mexican Sergio Perez third for Force India.

    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 woman...you know. We had to say something.
