Fashionista Katie Leadbeater, 25, had been sporting expensive high heels for a night out with friends in Manchester. But at the end of the evening she put away her stilettos and sported her flip flops instead for comfort purposes to get home. A CCTV operator alerted a police patrol when he became 'concerned' about her American sports car - complete with personalised number plate - as it was being driven on the outskirts of the city.

Dutch bros most expensive drink
The thought of it is enough to make a wine buff choke on their Chablis. According to a new survey by consumer research group Kantar, one in three UK wine drinkers don’t like spending more than £5 per bottle. It’s said anything north of that feels too expensive for a quiet night in. But, after a decade of tax hikes and subsequent rising wine prices, sniffing out bottles at this level is becoming increasingly difficult. Spend £5 on a wine and a staggering 64 per cent of the cost now goes to the Treasury. That’s £2.23 per bottle before VAT. Take out the packaging, shipping and distribution costs — and the retailer’s cut — and you’re left with less than 50p worth of wine in the bottle. British drinks expert Helen McGinn picked out a selection of the best wines under-£5 in UK stores, including Cotes de Gascogne Colombard Sauvignon Blanc (pictured) As a former supermarket wine buyer — and a lover of a bargain — … [Read more...] about With news a third of quaffers don’t like spending more than a fiver on a bottle, Femail drink expert HELEN McGINN says: Yes, you CAN get fine wine for a fiver!

Younger generations of Britons are abandoning the classic cup of builder's tea in favour of coffee and herbal brews, the company behind PG Tips has warned. The 'dying' demand for black tea bags has been flagged by consumer goods giant Unilever, which also owns Marmite and Dove soap. Instead, so-called millennial and generation Z shoppers born between the early 1980s and early 2000s are turning to trendier and more expensive varieties such as green teas and herbal blends. Graeme Pitkethly, Unilever's finance chief, also said younger consumers 'drink a lot of coffee'. Younger generations of Britons are abandoning the classic cup of builder's tea in favour of coffee and herbal brews, the company behind PG Tips has warned It comes after industry research found Britons were drinking hundreds of millions fewer cups of tea per year, with experts at Kantar blaming a fall in sales of black tea.

I’m sitting down to a picnic breakfast at a sun-flecked table beside the River Lys in Flanders. Consulting my map, I write the following numbers on something approximating a waxed luggage tag: “22-37-71-34-33-32-31-30-08-01-33”. I put the map away, slip the tag around my bike’s handlebars and I’m set for the morning. I’ve never been to this part of Flanders before – it’s the lesser-known French part, on the northernmost tip of the country, bordering Belgium – but I’m now confident I can cycle today from my table in the riverside town of Saint-Venant, through Haverskerque, across the Nieppe forest, down into Merville and finally into the town of Estaires. Welcome to French Flanders’ ingenious new cycle network. Launched earlier this year, the catchily titled Réseau Points-Nœuds Vélo (literally Network Node-Points Bike) comprises 830km of minor roads and cycle paths covering the Vallée de la Lys, the … [Read more...] about Tour de northern France: a new cycling trail in Flanders
