Obituary: Major Patrick Rance

WHEN PATRICK Rance took over the village shop at Streatley in 1953 he found a wedge of Danish Blue, an Edam and some New Zealand cheddar.

Outlook: One2One

IF DEUTSCHE Telekom's Ron Sommer were to have a One2One (or an EinZweiEin as we perhaps ought to call them now) who would it be with? He could do worse that chose Mr Justice Moses, who yesterday put the icing on the cake of Deutsche's pounds 8.4bn purchase of Britain's smallest mobile operator.

How the pastor patrol pacified black Boston

IT IS FRIDAY afternoon, the schools are out and the Ella J Baker House is teeming. All through this old Victorian house in Dorchester, one of the toughest corners of Boston, children, teens and grown-ups bounce between rooms, taking messages, watching videos, doing homework, or just talking.

Obituary: Anthea Askey

PERT AND pretty, sweet and very petite, Anthea Askey was the delightful daughter of one of the country's all-time favourite funny men, Arthur Askey, who might very well have called himself "sweet and petite" if only in jest. The only child of Arthur and his beloved wife, May, both of whom might be described as pocket-sized, Anthea inherited her father's spirit of comedy and her mother's good looks. Domesticity and producing grandchildren for her parents deprived her of a fulsome career in television and faithful viewers of a major star.
