Ex-F1 engineer Andy, 51, has told how the lucky ticket lay unchecked under his work van’s sun visor for six weeks. A neighbour said: “He’s always said he was a car nut.

In the early hours of Saturday, as most Nigerians slept, the country’s Independent National Electoral Commissions (INEC) decided to postpone the presidential elections by a week. They cited logistical reasons, including fires, bad weather, and difficulties distributing voting materials. However, in reality it appears to be incompetence on a gross scale. Yet Nigerians will tell you that this is nothing new. In 2015, the elections were delayed by six weeks due to the security threat posed by Boko Haram. And in 2011, INEC declared at noon on voting day that the country was not ready and instead it would try again the following week. The delay … [Read more...] about Buhari vs Abubakar: who will win the Nigerian presidential election?

Jezza chose the Lamborghini Huracan … [Read more...] about Here’s the winners of The Sun Motor Awards 2018 voted for by our readers
Rye was awash with all things nautical last Sunday (September 9) with the annual Sea Festival and Raft Race. The highly-entertaining, day-long event was held on The Strand. Seven entrants took to the water to enter the raft race. Organiser Rebekah Gilbert says there was a highly charged competitive spirit between the front runners on their home made contraptions, adding: “In first place again was Skinners of Rye, with the Mermaid and Jenco Electrics just behind. Closely following them home were the Rye Retreat and a Rye Good Time. Unfortunately the wind got the better of Flobea and in particular The Crown who were pushed back under Monkbretton bridge at one stage, however, their elaborate raft decked up as a beer table complete with optics and parasols did win most fun raft for a second year running.”The Rye Reteat raised £911 for local charity the Sara Lee Trust but are hoping to reach their target of £1,000. To donate call into the salon at 36-38 Cinque Ports … [Read more...] about Pictures of popular Rye Raft Race
