WENDY'S has revealed four items that will be top of the menu when the first UK branch opens in Reading. The full menu has yet to be announced, but the chain confirmed that it will be bringing its popular Dave's Burger to British shores this year. Dave's Single burger is made with a quarter-pound of fresh beef, American cheese, crisp lettuce, tomato, pickle, ketchup, mayo, and onion all on a toasted bun. Next up on the menu will be fan favourite and signature Wendy's dessert: the Chocolate Frosty. Thick enough to use a spoon and smooth enough to use a straw, this dessert is like a cross between an ice cream and a milkshake. Last year, Wendy's brought back its chicken burger to restaurants in America along with other fast food chains, sparking a "chicken burger war" . The chain will be keeping the Wendy's Spicy Chicken Sandwich on its UK menu too, so British fans can see what all the fuss is about.

It was an ordinary Wednesday morning when I woke up on 13 March, 1996. It was snowing and I shivered as I pulled on my red school uniform sweater. We’d moved to Scotland three years earlier – my mum, my stepdad and my 11-year-old brother Joe. I loved my school. I was a happy-go-lucky kid and very settled. Dunblane was a safe, close-knit community. Neighbours were friendly and Joe and I had the freedom to play in the park and walk to school by ourselves. After we’d waved Mum goodbye at home, we walked the short distance to school and Joe went off to his class, which was in a prefab structure on the site, and I went to mine, Primary Four, which was a classroom in the main building. The school had a large gym in the middle and a big field at the back.

THE state pension is a regular payment most people claim when they reach a certain age in later life. It's different to your workplace or a private pension , with the time you can apply for it depending on when you were born. In May 2014, the government changed how the state pension system works , with the goal of making it simpler. In order to get a state pension you need to pay National Insurance contributions (NICs), and have built up a minimum number of years' worth. How much is the state pension? Men born on or after April 6, 1951, or women born on or after April 6, 1953, will be able to claim the new state pension. For those who reached the state pension age before April 6, 2016, you’ll be getting the old state pension, known as the basic state pension. The full new state pension is £175.20 per week , while the previous full basic state pension was £134.25 per week.
