Noel Gallagher’s handwritten Wonderwall lyrics fetch 10 times estimate at auction | Ents & Arts News

A piece of paper with the lyrics of Wonderwall handwritten by Noel Gallagher has fetched £46,875 at auction.

The page is believed to have been written sometime in the mid-2000s to help Gallagher, lead guitarist for the band, during rehearsals.

They were kept afterwards by the band’s road crew.

The song appeared on the 1995 album (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? and became one of the band’s most successful and best-known.

The estimate for the piece had been between £4,000 and £6,000.

Gallagher and his brother Liam formed Oasis in 1991 but the band split in 2009 and the two siblings have had an icy relationship since.

Also sold on Friday was Noel Gallagher’s 1962 Epiphone Casino Guitar, which he bought after advice from The Jam’s Paul Weller.

It sold for £56,250.

The guitar was used to record Oasis’s third album Be Here Now, and demos for their fourth album Standing On The Shoulders Of Giants.

The two items were featured in one of the biggest collections of Oasis memorabilia to be auctioned in the UK, according to Propstore.

A leather jacket worn by Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash during the music video for the song Paradise City was sold for £34,375, and an autographed ticket for a Beatles concert sold for £12,500.

David Bowie’s spacesuit which he wore for the 1980 music video Ashes To Ashes, Whitney Houston’s Queen Of The Night costume worn in the film The Bodyguard, and a signed gun licence application from Elvis Presley are also being auctioned.

Other pieces among the 1,500 lots are from Michael Jackson, the Sex Pistols, Blur, Rihanna, and the Spice Girls.

The auction at the Bafta headquarters in Piccadilly, London, opened on 3 November and runs until 6 November.

Asylum seekers say mouldy, rotten hotel food is making them ill | UK News

Asylum seekers have told Sky News the food they are being provided with at a hotel is making them ill with stomach problems.

And a GP we have spoken to has raised concern that some children of asylum seekers she has seen are not gaining weight properly because of what they are being given to eat.

It comes amid concerns raised about severe overcrowding at the Manston processing centre in Kent and the general treatment of asylum seekers – as Home Office minister Chris Philp said people who had come into the country had “a cheek” to complain about the conditions they were facing.

We arranged to meet a group of asylum seekers in a Gloucestershire park to hear their concerns.

We first spoke to an Iranian woman who wanted to remain anonymous.

She said: “They (her children) need fresh food, fresh vegetables. We don’t have any facilities in my room like a fridge or microwave.”

“It’s not good and it’s not suitable for families. This type of hotel without any facilities.”

We spoke to three other asylum seekers who were from Central America.

One said she had to flee her country in fear of powerful drugs gangs.

But she said although she felt safe in the UK she felt the process of claiming asylum was “hard”.

They shared videos with us of the food they say they were given which was mouldy, rotten and not cooked properly.

Sky News spoke to the caterers who said complaints will be taken seriously.

The asylum seeker said: “In my case I’ve spent a lot of days without breakfast, lunch or dinner because I was looking down and I saw this kind of food and I prefer not to eat as every time that I eat that I have diarrhoea or stomach ache.”

‘Real cause for concern’

The asylum seekers are among several hundred GP Joan Nash has access to – she told Sky News about one in 10 have seen a doctor about stomach problems which could be linked to what they are eating.

She was also concerned about some children of asylum seekers she sees who are not putting on weight.

Dr Nash said: “The weight of the children is a real cause for concern

“Of the children that we have weighed – two-thirds of them since arrival have either stayed the same or have actually lost weight.

“That’s really alarming and really unusual in children. This is over a six, seven-month period.”

The Home Office says food provided in asylum hotels meets all NHS standards and concerns will be addressed.

There are currently 37,000 asylum seekers in hotels, which is costing taxpayers £5.6m a day.

A Home Office spokesperson said: “Asylum seekers in hotels are provided with three meals a day, as well as a weekly allowance and additional provisions for families with a baby or toddler.

“The food provided in asylum hotels meets all the NHS Eatwell standards as well as responding to all cultural and dietary requirements.

“Where concerns are raised about any aspect of the service delivered in a hotel we work with the provider to ensure these concerns are addressed, while asylum seekers have access to 24/7 helpline to raise any concerns they have and are able to make formal complaints which will always be followed up.”

James Bascoe-Smith: Men who stabbed teen and left him ‘dead’ for nearly an hour sentenced to life in prison | UK News

Two men who stabbed a teenager and left him effectively dead for nearly an hour have been sentenced to life in prison.

James Bascoe-Smith was 17 when he was assaulted last year, leaving him using a wheelchair and struggling to communicate.

James was surrounded by family and friends at the Old Bailey as his two attackers were sentenced for conspiracy to murder.

Leon Rashid, 20, was sentenced to life with a minimum term of 14 years and Taiquane Lewis, 19, was sentenced to life with a minimum term of 13 years.

Rashid had also been found guilty of having an offensive weapon.

The judge said it was a “carefully planned attack”.

“You chose an entirely innocent teenager, James who had nothing to do with 410 (gang) and was simply testing a bicycle to make sure it was safe for his mum to use.

“Had it not been for the medical intervention, this would have been a murder trial.

“He is a shadow is his old self and will never be able to lead a normal life again.”

A third defendant, Stephanie Paez-Lopez, 20, was cleared of assisting an offender by helping to get rid of a Range Rover used in the attack.

Victim video called his mother as he effectively died

James was knocked off his bike, which he was test riding for his mother, and knifed by masked men in Brixton, south London, on 23 February last year.

He video-called her from his mobile phone as he lay on the ground and effectively died in the street near his home before he was saved in hospital.

he spent 174 days in hospital before he was allowed to return home, where he continues to work on his recovery – achieving 100 sit-ups in his wheelchair.

‘Since the attack my life has changed’

In a pre-recorded video played during the hearing, James asked why the defendants targeted him and whether they now “feel bad”.

“When I was stabbed by these people I remember crying out for my mum and pleading for them to stop,” he said.

“I do not remember much and I could not communicate for six months after the attack.

“Since the attack my life has changed.

“They have stopped me from driving, going on my first holiday with my friends to celebrate my 18th birthday, gymnastics coaching, working and from becoming a music producer as I was studying this in college.”

He described moving away from Brixton, leaving behind friends, neighbours and “everyone that I knew”.

He added: “I now need a carer full time, they are complete strangers to me who come in to provide me my personal care, to feed and clothe me.

“I cannot get out of bed on my own, I can’t even brush my own teeth and I need a lot of medication to help me with my recovery.

“I have been left in a wheelchair that is not electric, I rely on everyone to move me, I have no independence.

“I now have a brain injury because my heart stopped for nearly an hour, I don’t think I will ever be able to work or study again.

‘I just want to know why they attacked me’

“I was very active before the attack, I was very involved in my community and helping my family, I would pick up my little cousins from school help them with their work and I would coach them at gymnastics.

“I did not deserve this, I had no issues with anyone, I don’t know why they attacked me, I just want to know why they attacked me and if they feel bad for what they have done.”

He said: “I am grateful that the doctors saved my life but living like this is hard, I miss my friends, I miss my old life, every day I wake up knowing this is how I will be forever.”

Speaking outside the Old Bailey, James’s aunt Rachel Duncan said: “James was fortunate to have survived, however he has been left with severe life-changing injuries.”

She added: “This should not have happened and I urge people who carry knives to stop. Please stop.

“The trauma caused to my nephew and my family mean we are now living with the impact of knife violence forever.”

Government backs Sizewell C after reports nuclear power plant could be scrapped | Politics News

The government says it still supports the Sizewell C nuclear power plant and is hoping to get a deal over the line to fully fund the project as soon as possible.

Funding towards the Suffolk plant totalling £700m was signed off by Boris Johnson at the start of September in one of his last acts as prime minister.

But the site’s future was cast into doubt overnight after reports claimed it was being reviewed ahead of the chancellor’s autumn statement in just under two weeks – with Treasury sources telling Sky News “all options are on the table” to fill the fiscal black hole in government finances.

Now, Rishi Sunak’s official spokesperson says the reports are “not accurate” and “our position remains the same”, adding negotiations are “ongoing and constructive”.

The £20bn Sizewell C project aims to generate enough low-carbon electricity to supply six million homes and help protect the UK from energy market volatility.

The plant is a joint endeavour with French energy giant EDF and is expected to take a decade to build.

While it has the backing of the Labour Party and unions, critics say the plans are too expensive and the new power source will take too long to come online.

Potty training goes wrong: Firefighters free toddler who got her head stuck in a toilet seat | UK News

An evening of potty training went badly wrong after a toddler got her head stuck in a toilet seat.

Kay Stewart, 37, had been trying to potty train her two-year-old daughter Harper at their home in Wallsend, North Tyneside.

But the toddler decided to try to wear the seat around her neck and got into difficulty, crying: “Mammy, I’m stuck.”

Ms Stewart’s efforts to get the seat off were unsuccessful and, in desperation, she asked her 16-year-old daughter Shannon to call firefighters for help.

Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service dispatched a crew from Wallsend Community Fire Station and they arrived within minutes.

They used small tools to remove the potty, and amused Harper’s siblings with the blue lights on their fire truck.

Ms Stewart said: “They were so calming and kept the other kids busy while helping Harper.

“Harper gave the firefighter a big hug once he was done.

“They even put their light on and gave them a big wave before heading off.

“I was so grateful for their help that evening.

Station manager Trevor Sturrock said he was “so glad” that his crew were able to assist the family and wished Harper well with her future potty training.

“She had to be very still which can be really frightening for such a little person.

“Harper was very brave, which helped the firefighters complete the rescue.

“I want to thank the crew for their professionalism at this incident – sometimes when you turn up people are really panicked and it’s about remaining calm and calming others.”

Wakanda Forever: Stars of Black Panther sequel say they hope actor Chadwick Boseman ‘would be proud’ | Ents & Arts News

After feeling “completely deflated” by Chadwick Boseman’s death, Lupita Nyong’o and Letitia Wright – who star in the Black Panther sequel Wakanda Forever – have said they hope “he would be proud” of the new movie.

Two years on from Boseman’s death from colon cancer, aged just 43, the absence of King T’Challa himself on the black carpet at the London premiere was acutely felt as fans and photographers saw the stars out in force in Leicester Square.

Wright, who returns as Shuri, King T’Challa’s sister, told Sky News that he was at the forefront of everyone’s thoughts throughout the shoot.

She said: “I lost my brother, so for me, the most important thing was about thinking why? Why are we moving forward? What would he have wanted?

“And I feel very strongly under the guidance of our director that he would be proud of this. He would have wanted to see the next generation motivated and inspired, that’s what we’re trying to do.”

Nyong’o, who plays King T’Challa’s former lover Nakia, admitted returning to the set was hard.

“At the beginning, when Chadwick died, I was just completely deflated and I had no idea how we could come back to Wakanda.”

Crediting the sensitive way in which director Ryan Coogler takes the story forward, she said “[he] pivoted the story to embrace that loss, he made it about exploring grief and how we move on from tragedy”.

A new addition to the franchise, I May Destroy You actress Michaela Coel, said she was a huge fan of the original and “the passion it ignited” in her.

She told Sky News: “I was giving cuddles, handing out tissues and making people laugh where I could.”

Joining the franchise as Aneka, a captain and combat instructor, she also credited filmmaker Coogler and his co-writer Joe Robert Cole in how they incorporated the great loss that everyone felt.

Coel said: “A lot of women carry the heart of this movie but it’s written by two incredible men.

“What really blows my mind is how they were able to take their grief, process it and funnel it into a script that we could feel and understand…. it’s incredible and so respectful.”

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is in cinemas from 11 November.

Britain ‘too deep’ into Ukraine war, Russian ambassador says | World News

The Russian ambassador has warned the UK that it is “too deep” in the Ukraine war – but said Moscow would not use nuclear weapons in the conflict.

In an interview with Sky’s Mark Austin, diplomat Andrei Kelin claimed he had proof that UK special forces were involved in a Ukrainian drone attack on Russia‘s Black Sea fleet in Crimea and had handed evidence to the British ambassador.

Asked to provide evidence of Russia’s claims, Mr Kelin said: “We perfectly know about [the] participation of British specialists in [the] training, preparation and execution of violence against the Russian infrastructure and the Russian fleet in the Black Sea. We know that it has been done.”

Putin ‘weakened’ after ‘catastrophic error’ – latest updates

Pressed to give evidence to the public on Moscow’s accusation the attack on the Russian fleet in the Black Sea was carried out under the guidance and leadership of British Navy specialists, Mr Kelin said it had been handed to the British ambassador and added that “it will become public pretty soon,” perhaps today, perhaps tomorrow.

He added: “It is dangerous because it escalates the situation. It can bring us up to the line of I would say no return, return is always possible. But anyway, we should avoid escalation.

“And this is a warning actually that Britain is too deep in this conflict. It means the situation is becoming more and more dangerous.”

Claims designed to distract from military failures, UK says

The government has said such claims are false and are designed to distract from Russia’s military failures in Ukraine.

Moscow has cast the UK as a particularly insidious Western foil to Russia. President Vladimir Putin has said the UK is plotting to destroy Russia and carve up its vast natural resources.

Ambassador denies Moscow would use nuclear weapons

Speaking after Russia accused the West of “encouraging provocations with weapons of mass destruction”, Mr Kelin denied Moscow would use nuclear weapons in Ukraine.

Mr Kelin said: “The nuclear war cannot be won and it should never be fought. And we stick strongly to this statement.”

Asked if Moscow could use a tactical nuclear weapon in the conflict, Mr Kelin replied: “No. The world has every assurance that Russia is not going to use [a] tactical nuclear weapon in [the] Ukrainian conflict.”

Moscow has been ramping up its nuclear rhetoric since it invaded Ukraine, most recently by accusing Kyiv of planning to use a “dirty bomb,” though it did not offer evidence. Kyiv has denied it has any such plan.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said it feared the five declared nuclear powers were teetering “on the brink of a direct armed conflict”.

It added: “We are strongly convinced that in the current complicated and turbulent situation, caused by irresponsible and impudent actions aimed at undermining our national security, the most immediate task is to avoid any military clash of nuclear powers.”

Rishi Sunak sells poppies at Westminster Tube station during rush hour | Politics News

Rishi Sunak surprised commuters during the morning rush hour by selling poppies at Westminster Tube station in central London.

The prime minister was seen holding a tray full of poppies and talking to members of the public, some who asked for selfies, during a brief appearance to which no media were invited.

The Royal British Legion said they were “grateful to the PM for generously giving up his time to collect with us”.

Others were also quick to share their surprise on spotting Mr Sunak.

Lewis, an operations and data analyst who did not want to give his last name, said he bought a poppy from Mr Sunak for £5.

“I didn’t expect to meet the chap,” he said. “I went to buy my ticket at Westminster Station and he was there selling poppies with the military men and women.”

He said that having been critical of Mr Sunak’s role in Boris Johnson‘s departure as prime minister earlier in the year, he “turns out to be okay”, adding that he is “down to earth” and “approachable”.

“I was surprised he was there,” he said.

Mr Sunak joined several army personnel and civil servant Stephen le Roux.

Some were critical of his appearance, with one commuter tweeting: “Funny how Sunak has time to ‘sell’ a few poppies but not so much for major international conferences.”

It appeared to be a reference to the prime minister’s U-turn on his decision to skip the COP27 climate summit in Egypt.

Mr Sunak initially said he was not going, but later said he would attend the event in Sharm el Sheikh after facing a raft of criticism from environmental campaigners and MPs.

It was announced the morning after former prime minister Boris Johnson told Sky News he would be attending.

Another social media user wrote on Twitter: “Good to see the prime minister helping sell poppies at Westminster tube this morning. We need more of this and less celebrity chasing nonsense from likes [of] Boris Johnson & Matt Hancock.”

Cost of living crisis: Bank of England set to increase interest rates to levels not seen since 2008 | Business News

The Bank of England is expected to unveil the biggest interest rate rise since the 1980s today.

A hike of 0.75 percentage points is anticipated – pushing the base rate to 3%, levels that have not been seen since 2008.

If confirmed, this could push up mortgage bills for millions of people in the coming months.

Supermarket offers 1p ready meals – cost of living latest

This would also be the eighth time in a row that the Bank of England has hiked interest rates. Less than a year ago, the base rate was just 0.1%.

Earlier this month, the markets had predicted that today’s increase could be one whole percentage point – but sentiment has calmed since the mini-budget was reversed and Liz Truss resigned as prime minister.

The Bank of England is also set to release long-term inflation forecasts, which are expected to show that the cost of living next year will be much higher than its target of 2%.

Official figures released in September showed inflation hit 10.1% – matching a 40-year high seen in July – with much of this increase driven by rising food costs.

Through these rate hikes, the Bank of England is trying to bring core inflation under control, which excludes more volatile elements such as petrol and energy prices.

Analysts at Deutsche Bank have warned they expect the BoE’s forecasts to show “the economic outlook has deteriorated further”, adding: “Conditioned on market pricing, the UK economy will likely fall into a deeper and more prolonged recession.”

Firms face ‘desperately difficult decisions,’ Labour warns

This afternoon, Labour’s shadow chancellor will warn that the latest interest rate rise will have a huge impact on consumers and companies alike.

Speaking at the Anthropy conference in Cornwall, Rachel Reeves will say: “Rising interest rates will mean families with already stretched budgets will be hit by higher mortgage payments. It will mean higher financing costs for businesses.

“For many firms who have had a tough couple of years, this will mean desperately difficult decisions about whether to carry on.

“And it will mean profound implications for growth as demand is sucked out of the economy – and even those firms that are keeping their head above water face difficult decisions about whether to invest or expand.”

Yesterday, a new poll carried about by Ipsos for Sky News revealed that more than a quarter of people have started using their credit cards to buy food – and a fifth have borrowed money to adjust to rising prices this year.

US also increases interest rates

The Bank of England’s decision will come a day after America’s central bank, the Federal Reserve, also confirmed that it will increase interest rates by 0.75 percentage points.

Wall Street fell sharply when Fed Chairman Jerome Powell suggested the US base rate may need to go even higher than previously thought to tackle the worst inflation seen in decades.

He warned: “It’s very premature, in my view, to think about or to be talking about pausing our rate hikes. We have a ways to go.”

Mr Powell also said that the Federal Reserve would rather make a mistake of taking interest rates too high than easing too quickly, amid fears that a premature pullback could cause inflation to remain.

Home Office facing judicial review over migrant overcrowding at Manston, immigration minister says | Politics News

The Home Office is facing a judicial review over the conditions at the Manston migrant processing centre, the immigration minister has told Sky News.

Robert Jenrick said the legal action has begun after reports of severe overcrowding at the centre in Kent, which is meant to hold 1,600 people but has been housing about 4,000 migrants, according to MPs.

He told The Take with Sophy Ridge programme: “I believe we have received the initial contact for a judicial review.

“That’s not unusual, this is a highly litigious area of policy but of course, as the minister responsible, I want to make sure everything we do is conducted appropriately and within the law.”

Mr Jenrick said he could not reveal who had brought the judicial review as it was legally sensitive but Sky News understands the Home Office has received the pre-action protocol letter for a judicial review and the department will be responding “in due course”.

The immigration minister said he expects Manston to return to a “legally compliant site” soon – implying the site is not currently adhering to its legal obligations as a migrant processing site as the government faces a legal battle about it.

Judicial reviews determine the lawfulness of a decision or action made by a public body, in this case the Home Office. It takes about three to five months to get a decision but an injunction can halt action immediately.

News of a judicial review comes as:

• Lib Dem MP Michael Carmichael told the Commons the Home Secretary said she did not want to “prematurely release” migrants into local communities without having anywhere to stay – but there were reports a bus full of Manston migrants were “abandoned” at Victoria Station last night

• Kent and Medway council chiefs have written to the Home Secretary to urge her to stop using the county as an “easy fix” as they say they are under “disproportionate pressure” due to their location – and there are no more school spaces for year seven and nine local children due to the unplanned arrival of refugee children

• Four senior MPs, chairs of influential committees, have called on Mrs Braverman to explain how the government will get to grips with the migrant crisis as they expressed their “deep concerns” over the “dire” conditions at Manston

Albania’s prime minister hit out at the UK government for blaming Albanians for the migrant crisis.

Extraordinary that a minister admitted what’s going on in Manston isn’t legal – ahead of a court fight

Sam Coates

Sam Coates

Deputy political editor


Robert Jenrick confirmed the government is now going to have to justify, in court, why what it was doing was legal.

He told The Take with Sophy Ridge: “I expect Manston will be returned to a well-functioning and legally compliant site very rapidly.”

I thought that was extraordinary – that sounds awfully like a minister sitting here admitting that what’s going on in Manston in Kent isn’t legal – as the government is about to face a fight on exactly that point in court.

Whether that will play into the legal arguments, we will see.

Mr Jenrick also talked about good forecasts. Turn that around, he means bad weather forecasts because over the weekend the lovely weather allowed lots of people to come over in small boats.

That put this extraordinary pressure, layered on the chronic systemic issues – people sleeping on floors, on chairs.

He denied the scabies reported at Manston was a consequence of what was going on in there but clearly there is a big problem with lots to fix.

This is all plugging into a difficult political area for the government but right now, remember Suella Braverman was given legal advice that sources say she ignored about the conditions in Manston – which she denies.

For a minister to basically be admitting what was going on inside Manston was illegal feels like quite a problem.

‘Expect Manston to be legally compliant soon’

The immigration minister, who was only appointed last week by Rishi Sunak, said he has been working with Home Secretary Suella Braverman to reduce the number of people and also the length of time they are staying at Manston – which is only meant to be 24 hours but has been much longer in some cases.

He added: “So the week I’ve been in post I’ve tried to work night and day to ensure the Manston site is not just legally compliant but is a humane and compassionate place where we welcome those migrants, treat them appropriately and then they leave quickly to alternative accommodation.

“I’m pleased to say that this evening that’s the path we’re on, the numbers at Manston have fallen very substantially since the weekend when we became aware of the specific issues and got involved so directly.

“I think we’re on a path now where within a matter of days, assuming we don’t see very large numbers of migrants coming across the Channel – I don’t think that’s going to happen as we have good forecasts of the weather and other intelligence from northern France.

“I expect Manston will be returned to a well-functioning and legally compliant site very rapidly.”

This is the Conservatives’ making

Labour’s shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper said: “The Conservative government has no excuse. They have been warned about these problems for months and failed to act.

“These problems are entirely of their making – their decision-making has collapsed, so the backlog has grown and they clearly haven’t planned or properly followed legal advice.

“We need urgent answers on what the home secretary knew and when. The prime minister promised integrity and professionalism but all they have shown is the opposite. This is complete chaos and they need to urgently get a grip.”

Labour’s shadow policing minister Sarah Jones told Sky News she was not surprised a judicial review had been launched and Manston was “working fine until five weeks ago when the home secretary decided not to add additional hotels” to house migrants.

Mr Jenrick denied he had taken over from Mrs Braverman in dealing with Manston after she was accused of failing to listen to legal advice that said migrants from Manston needed to be sent to hotels after being processed within a day of arriving.

She denied this in parliament on Tuesday.

Migrants ‘threatening self-harm’

“We’ve been working extremely closely together, we’ve procured more hotels, extra support, brilliant officers from Border Force supported by contractors and armed forces,” Mr Jenrick added.

A Home Office spokeswoman told Sky News: “The number of people arriving in the UK via small boats has reached record levels and continues to put our asylum system under incredible pressure.

“Manston remains resourced and equipped to process migrants securely and we will provide alternative accommodation as soon as possible.

“We urge anyone who is thinking about leaving a safe country and risk their lives at the hands of criminal people smugglers to seriously reconsider. Despite what they have been told, they will not be allowed to start a new life here.”
