Ashes 2021-22 fourth Test, day five: Australia v England – live!

The Guardian UK - Dom, 09/01/2022 - 00:41

12th over: England 30-0 (Hameed 8, Crawley 22)

Boland kicks things off and there’s a bat-pad appeal straight away, but it’s non-committal. Hameed leaves the next and Carey takes it in front of his face. Continuing the theme, Boland gets another to jump as Hameed comes forward and it raps him on the gloves and chest. The next is much the same, but Hameed deals with it. Good signs for Boland. A maiden.

Minister hits out after protesters were cleared of toppling Colston statue — as new evidence could lead to retrial

The Sun - Dom, 09/01/2022 - 00:37

A MINISTER has hit out after four protesters were cleared of toppling a slaver’s statue — as it emerged key evidence could lead to an appeal.

Kit Malthouse vented his frustration after the two-week trial resulted in not guilty verdicts for those involved in thowing the Edward Colston monument into Bristol harbour.

Jake Skuse, 33, Rhian Graham, 30, Milo Ponsford, 26, and Sage Willoughby, 22, brought down the statue during a Black Lives Matter protest in June 2020 The statue of Edward Colston is dropped into Briston harbour

When asked if he disagreed with the outcome, the Policing Minister said: “I do, yes. But I respect the jury made this decision. I wish they made a different decision but they didn’t.”

His comments came as it emerged the trial judge’s decision to let historian Professor David Olusoga give evidence on Colston’s slave trade role might form the basis of an appeal.

In his summing up, Judge Peter Blair told jurors to use the historian’s expertise to help “assess the question of whether displaying a monument of Edward Colston may be indecent or abusive”.

After the verdicts, William Hughes, for the prosecution, said this evidence “was a gloss that I can imagine would have put anyone in the jury at a degree of unease”.

Meanwhile Attorney General Suella Braverman said she was “carefully considering” referring the case to the Court of Appeal.

It would rule on whether there was an error in law on the directions given to the jury.

The Crown Prosecution Service could then ask for a retrial.

Jake Skuse, 33, Rhian Graham, 30, Milo Ponsford, 26, and Sage Willoughby, 22, brought down the statue during a Black Lives Matter protest in June 2020.

Boy, 9, catches WW1 bomb with magnet fisher and takes it HOME

The Sun - Dom, 09/01/2022 - 00:27

A BOY of nine given a magnet fisher for Christmas nearly had an explosive start when he brought home an undetonated World War One bomb.

William Hartley was testing out his gift with his grandad Nick at a canal near his home when he pulled out a foot-long metal tube.

A young boy brought home a World War One bomb after fishing it out of a canal

As they looked closer they realised it was a World War One artillery shell — so excited William decided to carry it home to show his dad.

But a worried neighbour suggested it could be live so the family contacted the police who called the bomb squad.

Dad Andrew said: “The magnet fisher was the first thing he wanted for Christmas, and he was desperate to go out to use it.

“They had gone to the canal and he was sending me back pictures of some of the things he had caught.

“Then he suddenly rang me and said he was bringing something home but couldn’t bring it in the house.

“We waited outside and could see him with this bomb and I just wondered if he should be bringing it home! It was a real shock.”

Andrew put the bomb in the garage of his house in Lancaster before the Royal Logistics Corps Army Bomb Disposal Team from Chester was called in.

He added: “They came and had a look at it and asked us to clear away from the area.”

The bomb squad said the top part was a timer that had not detonated so they took it away to destroy it themselves.

Andrew said William could not wait to return to primary school after the holiday to tell everyone about his discovery.

“This was a Christmas he will never forget,” he said.
