Welcome to the Evening Standard’s LIVE coverage of the Ashes. England dominated the opening two sessions of the first Test after losing the toss, reducing Australia to 122 for eight despite losing James Anderson to injury early on. Steve Smith and Peter Siddle ensured Australia responded in emphatic fashion with a stand of 88, however, leaving England rather deflated after such a wonderful start to the afternoon.

Ratu Epeli Nailatikau emphasised how Infantry Day was personal to him and others like him because Infantry Day was introduced to commemorate the late Corporal Sefania Sukunaivalu, who paid the ultimate sacrifice during the Solomon campaign in World War II.

The opening day to this year’s event saw huge crowds turn out for the annual automotive extravaganza that celebrates Coventry’s heritage as Britain’s ‘motor city’. And the second day didn't disappoint either - despite the heavens opening around lunchtime. Day one saw a hot and sunny day with a supercar parade featuring Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren vehicles - plus many more. Then it was on to practice sessions for the BARC Connaught Speed Championship. The supercars returned and there was also a variety of racing, ranging from BARC to the hugely popular racing trucks. Day two also saw the supercars roar around the track, but the day started a little calmer, with a parade of hundreds of Citroens. There was a spectacular parade of 1,000 classic Citroens on the ring road as part of the French marque’s centenary celebrations which kicked off from Coombe Country Park. 13 pictures of a soggy day two of Motofest View gallery Karl … [Read more...] about Thousands attend Coventry Motofest as day two comes to soggy end
(CNN)Ah, Eurovision -- the kitsch, camp, glitzy annual spectacle that captivates a continent and profoundly confuses the rest of the world. The annual singing competition attracts hundreds of millions of viewers, has given the world acts including Abba, Celine Dion and Olivia Newton-John, and may even have brought Europe together in the wake of the World War II. But truly understanding the joys and many, many oddities of Eurovision is trickier than it seems. It blends geopolitical skullduggery and skin-tight leather trousers like no other international event can. It sees entire countries glued to their televisions, certain in the knowledge that victory alone can secure a unifying sense of national pride. And -- most importantly -- it tears through copious amounts of glitter, crates of pyrotechnics and wardrobes full of frilly national dress, all in the name of transboundary cooperation. Make sense yet? Don't worry -- here's an explainer. Read More What is Eurovision? In … [Read more...] about What is Eurovision and why do people care?
