In 10 weeks from now Hull City will know just how strong a hand they will be able to play for the remainder of 2019. The early transfer deadline of August 8 – covering permanent deals and loans – will focus minds across the Championship this summer and the Tigers can ill-afford to leave business late with so much to do. An overhaul is expected, whether that’s with Nigel Adkins in charge or his successor. The departure of seven out-of-contract players and three loan signings already leaves holes to be plugged, while the expected exits of other key personnel promises to make this another summer of upheaval at the KCOM Stadium. But what are the greatest areas of concern ahead of another season in the Championship? Goalkeepers City left the door open for David Marshall to remain at the KCOM Stadium when revealing their retained list for 2019-20 but the chances of the experienced Scot sticking around are very slim.

A farm shop owner involved in a legal battle with council bosses which lasted for five years and saw his business massively shrink wants to create the 'Eden Project of the South East'. Rob Scott, owner of Hare Hatch Sheeplands in London Road, Hare Hatch, has been involved in a wrangle with Wokingham Borough Council after illegally leasing buildings on the site which were also on the green belt. The hugely long, complex and expensive legal battle, saw the operation dwindle from more than 100 staff to just 15. Huge areas of the garden centre have fallen into disrepair because of the battle as Mr Scott desperately tried to stay afloat. He was initially prosecuted by the council for allowing five other businesses to operate out of the buildings against the terms of the planning permission, given before he took over in 1993. He was later prosecuted for failing to adhere to the council's enforcement notice, which left him facing a prison sentence. The council then wanted to punish him … [Read more...] about Farm shop owner looks to create ‘Eden Project of the South East’

SUPERMARKET staff and shoppers have been accused of unwrapping Creme Eggs and putting them back on the shelf as people hunt for a white version worth up to £10,000. In a repeat of last year's scramble to find a white Creme Egg hidden amongst milk chocolate ones, customers have been complaining on social media that the treats have had their foil peeled back. Nearly 800 white chocolate treats have been hidden in normal Creme Egg wrappers in supermarkets including Tesco and Asda - and this year, the cash rewards for finding them are even bigger. There are eight £10,000 prizes up for grabs if you find one in a shop, as well as several £1,000 rewards. Cadbury is encouraging shoppers to buy its fondant-filled chocolates to see if they will find a white one.
