Wales rugby legend JPR Williams dies aged 74 | UK News

Wales and British and Irish Lions rugby legend JPR Williams has died aged 74, his former club has announced.

He played a big part in Wales’ success in the 1970s – helping them to three Grand Slams – and featured on the triumphant Lions tours to New Zealand in 1971 and 1974 in South Africa.

The former fullback, instantly recognisable with his low socks and long sideburns, also played for Bridgend, London Welsh and the Barbarians.

It was while playing for the Barbarians in 1973 against New Zealand that he was involved in what is widely regarded as the “greatest try ever scored” – a stunning 22-second blitz from one end of the field to another ending in a try by Gareth Edwards.

“Bridgend Ravens are devastated to announce the passing of JPR Williams,” the club said in a statement.

“One of Bridgend’s most decorated players and an icon of world rugby, JPR served the club most recently as club president.

“Our thoughts are with JPR’s family and friends at this sad time.”

Welsh International full back JPR Williams, who has become their mosted capped player with 54 caps. Williams first played for the national side in 1969.

The British and Irish Lions described Williams as “one of the greatest ever Lions”.

“A man who inspired so many. It is with huge sadness to learn that JPR Williams has passed away at the age of 74. All our thoughts are with his family and friends. Rest in Peace,” they wrote in a post on X.

Irish Rugby said Williams was a “true legend of the game”.

“A joy to watch on the field and a gentleman off it. Rest in peace, JPR Williams. Our thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family,” they said in a post on X.

Rugby star and surgeon

Born John Peter Rhys Williams in Bridgend, South Wales, in 1949, JPR as he would later become known, was the son of two GPs.

He initially shared his time as a schoolboy between rugby and tennis – at one point winning a British junior title at Wimbledon in 1966.

It was his decision to pursue a career in medicine that would eventually lead JPR to choose rugby over tennis – because the sport was amateur at the time and so allowed him to continue his education and train at the same time.

He was awarded his first of 55 caps for Wales against Scotland in 1969 – at the start of what would be Wales’s second golden era of rugby.

With players like Edwards, Barry John, and Phil Bennett, Wales dominated much of the 1970s, with Williams helping the side to Grand Slam wins in 1971, 1976, and 1978.

He was also a member of six Triple Crown-winning teams throughout the period and won eight caps for the Lions.

At the same time, Williams continued his career in medicine, qualifying as a physician in 1973.

JPR, who was awarded an MBE for services to rugby in 1977, retired from international rugby in 1981 to focus on his work as an orthopaedic surgeon.

However, he continued to play for club side Bridgend through the 1980s and 1990s, before joining Tondu where he remained until retiring in 2003.

Speaking about his mixing work and rugby, he told WalesOnline in 2019: “I was happy with my career as a surgeon and happy with my experiences in rugby.

“I was lucky to play for Wales when I did. I was surrounded by great players, who undoubtedly helped me become the player I was. And I enjoyed my club rugby, too.”

Camila Batmanghelidjh: Kids Company charity founder dies aged 61 | UK News

Camila Batmanghelidjh, who founded the high-profile Kids Company charity, and was a well-known campaigner for disadvantaged youngsters, has died aged 61.

Born in Iran, Batmanghelidjh rose to prominence in the UK after setting up Kids Company in south London in the 1990s to provide support for children in poverty.

The charity collapsed in 2015 amid allegations of financial mismanagement and sexual abuse. It had already received a substantial grant for the year and was handed another £3m despite it being deemed not value for money.

Police later investigated the allegations, and found no evidence of wrongdoing.

Despite the charity’s closure, Batmanghelidjh continued to work with vulnerable families and collaborated with other charities including Oasis Community Learning, now one of the largest multi-academy trusts in England.

Batmanghelidjh had many accolades and was named one of the 100 most powerful women in the UK in a list including JK Rowling and Theresa May by BBC Radio 4.

Two men, aged 60 and 61, arrested by counter terror police over ULEZ camera explosion | UK News

Two men have been arrested by officers investigating an explosion in which a ULEZ camera and surrounding property were damaged.

Officers from the Metropolitan Police’s Counter Terrorism Command arrested a 60-year-old and a 61-year-old over the incident in Sidcup, southeast London.

Nobody was injured in the explosion but vehicles and a property were damaged.

The camera had been installed on the road on 6 December and was cut down later in the day, one and a half hours before it blew up.

A low-sophistication improvised explosive device caused the blast, police said.

Detective Chief Superintendent Trevor Lawry said: “The explosion could easily have had far more harmful consequences, and today’s arrests highlight just how seriously the Met is treating the incident.

“My local officers are continuing to work with and support the Counter Terrorism Command who are leading the investigation due to their specialism in dealing with incidents involving the use of explosives.”

Both men remain in custody as searches are ongoing at two addresses in Sidcup and Horsham, West Sussex.

After the incident, a spokesman for the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “This grotesquely irresponsible behaviour puts both lives and property at risk.”
