Actor Hugh Grant's enviable scoop – bugging former News of the World hack Paul McMullan as he spilled a tinful of phone-hacking beans – was so popular it crashed The New Statesman's website yesterday. Also circulating on Twitter, however, was the piece that McMullan had craftily sold to the Mail a week previously, about how Grant happened to pop in to his pub in Dover for a swift ale, then left without paying. Grant reportedly failed to settle his £5.45 tab, and the piece is illustrated with pictures of the actor looking sheepish at the bar – his breast pocket bulging with what may or may not be a dictaphone. "We only charge £2.80 a pint and you'd have thought with his millions he could afford it," McMullan gleefully told the Mail. Yeah Paul, you got him. You got him good.

When Wolverhampton Wanderers eventually face West Bromwich there will be no paramilitaries doing choreographed moves in the stands or armed riot squads to police them. The players' cars should be safe from their own fans. In fact, his experience of the Belgrade derby convinces Nenad Milijas he can stay cool amid the heat of the first Black Country spat between the two sides in the top flight for 26 years. He might have to wait a few weeks to find out, however, after today's match was postponed.
