Richard Ingrams’s Week: We will never know the truth about the A6 killer

The name Peter Alphon will mean nothing to today's generation. But because I was a close friend of Paul Foot, who spent years investigating the A6 murder of 1961, for which James Hanratty was later hanged, I lived with the name Alphon almost as closely as he did.

Royal gift shop issues golliwog apology

Robert Dee

Our report on 23 April suggested that until the British tennis professional Robert Dee won a match in April this year, he had lost every previous professional match he had played, enduring a run of 54 consecutive defeats. We now accept that this was wrong as Mr Dee had won, and continues to win, many professional matches in Spain where he is based and plays most of his competitive tennis, including 20 matches in the last year alone. We apologise to Mr Dee.

Paperback: Tennis Whites and Teacakes, by John Betjeman

How delightful that a statue of the man who wrote "It is useless to pretend that I enjoy myself abroad" adorns the refurbished St Pancras. Equally dubious about the expat life ("Our savings gone, we climb the stony path/ Back to the house with scorpions in the bath"), Betjeman extolled the delights of the Northern Line's City Branch ("a strong smell of wet feet"). What he wrote of Waugh – "he will always appeal to those who like the English language" – applies equally to himself. On themes from Girls to Clergy, this selection of prose and poetry is as full of treats as an old-fashioned sweet-shop.

Murray hurries to win over error-prone Simon

Andy Murray matched his best clay-court performance by reaching the third round of the Hamburg Masters with a 6-3, 6-3 win over Gilles Simon yesterday. "It was a very good victory," said Murray. "He's beaten a lot of top guys on clay and is a very tough clay-court player. I was happy to finish it off so professionally."
