Fifty years ago there was dressing in the streets when peace broke out and British women fell in love with nylons - invented before the war and brought over here by GIs. And, reports Francesca Fearon, the artificial silk is still hip

OBITUARY:Ron Kray

Ron Kray was not the most successful of criminals, and he was far from the most violent. But he was a glamorous gangster who contributed to local charities, a murderer who loved his mother.

Entrapment ruling

Police acted lawfully in posing as hitmen to ensnare two people jailed for trying to hire contract killers, the Court of Appeal ruled. Dismissing an application by Keith Smurthwaite and Susan Gill, Lord Taylor said: 'The fact that the evidence has been obtained by entrapment, or by an agent provocateur or by a trick does not of itself require a trial judge to exclude it.'

Glancing in my rear-view mirror I could see him gesticulating impatiently for me to move over and let him pass as the outside lane was blocked.
