Arts and Entertainment Glory days: US singer Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen has scored his tenth UK number one album with High Hopes, beating the likes of David Bowie and Michael Jackson.

Funeral music: Ring-ding ding ding, Ted Heath is dead?

Tomorrow, the music played at Margaret Thatcher’s funeral will be Elgar’s “Nimrod” and “I Vow To Thee My Country”.
