Prosecution says soap star was lying when he denied sexually abusing five girls

Mark Leftly: Weather chaos shoots down Gatwick's expansion plans

Westminster Outlook The minds of politicians and business bosses work very differently. MPs are, typically, marvellously impressive at linking very disparate topics with a single thread of argument; directors believe this is disingenuous at best.

Driver who racked up 45 penalty points still on the road

FA Cup brings cash lifeline for ailing Macclesfield

The players will be thinking of the glory, but for the men trying to keep Grimsby Town, Kidderminster Harriers and Macclesfield Town afloat, it is the riches on offer in the FA Cup third round that makes it worth diverting the Conference trio’s attention from the quest to regain Football League status.

Wayne Harrison: Liverpool signing whose promising career was thwarted by serious injury at home and on the pitch

Wayne Harrison was not the most fortunate of footballers. Blessed with a sublime talent for sniffing out goal-scoring opportunities and converting them with consummate skill, he became the world's most expensive teenager when Liverpool – then the mightiest club in the land – paid Oldham Athletic £250,000 for his predatory services in the spring of 1985.

Billy Slater and Nate Myles at Old Trafford

Billy Slater fit to return for Australia and exorcise his 2008 demon

Billy Slater looks ready to take his place in Australia’s side to try to win back the World Cup his mistake cost them five years ago. The Melbourne full-back was player of the tournament in 2008. In the final, however, it was his error that created the winning try for the Kiwis’ Benji Marshall. This time, he missed the semi-final against Fiji after aggravating a knee injury in the last group game against the US and there were fears he might have to sit out his chance for revenge in this afternoon’s final at Old Trafford.

Donald Macintyre's Sketch: Old dog Clegg reaches for the Len McCluskey defence

For a man who made a speech in 2010 heralding the “new politics”, Nick Clegg is pretty adept at the old kind. He was harried from all sides about an imminent announcement that cabinet ministers will be able to hire 10 taxpayer-funded “personal advisers” in what the Tory Philip Hollobone decried as “a move towards a US West Wing type of Government”. (If only. Since the  hero of the television series is an idealistic president battling against vested interests this was slightly off target.)
