Manchester United sign former Premier League star’s son who gets iconic shirt number

[ad_1] Manchester United have recruited Silva Mexes, the son of former Wales and Cardiff City international Robert Earnshaw, aged 14.

Alongside a photograph of him holding up a number seven shirt with his name emblazoned on the back, he also wrote: “Very proud moment for me and my family to announce my signing for Manchester United.

How an eco-campsite in north Wales rescued our family holiday from disaster | Wales holidays

How an eco-campsite in north Wales rescued our family holiday from disaster | Wales holidays

[ad_1] Everyone has a good holiday disaster story, don’t they? Even experienced travel journalists. Ours was a twist on the classic passport fiasco, that saw us having to “exchange” a two-week trip to the sunny Cinque Terre on the Italian Riviera for sitting on a compost toilet in Wales. Map for Llyn peninsula camping trip Like all good stories retold among friends, that is a bit of an exaggeration. But after “passport-gate” – once the blame and threats of divorce had subsided – Bert’s Kitchen Garden, an eco campsite on a five-hectare (12-acre) farm in the Welsh village of Trefor on the Llŷn peninsula, became a half-term life-saver for our family of four. The panic started just 24 hours before we were supposed to depart, with our six-year-old daughter remarking that she still “looked like a baby” on her passport. Yup, it was out of date, and this set off several stages of rapid-fire grief, which we had to cycle through before I could land on “acceptance” and start hatching an emergency plan to rescue …

Northern Lights could be visible in England and Wales as severe solar storm to hit overnight | UK News

Northern Lights could be visible in England and Wales as severe solar storm to hit overnight | UK News

[ad_1] The Northern Lights are set to be visible across the UK overnight as a huge solar storm is going to hit Earth. America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reportedly issued its first severe solar storm warning since 2005 yesterday as a huge geomagnetic storm races towards Earth – meaning it could be the most powerful experienced in almost two decades. It’s set to hit overnight, and could supercharge the Northern Lights, making them visible in Scotland, northern England and Wales and even further south if conditions are right. But the Aurora Borealis could also potentially interfere with infrastructure, including the power grid and satellites when it hits.

Canaletto painting returns to Wales 80 years after mine protected it from Nazi wartime bombing in London | UK News

Canaletto painting returns to Wales 80 years after mine protected it from Nazi wartime bombing in London | UK News

[ad_1] A painting will return to Wales 80 years after it was hidden in a mine to protect it from bombing. The Stonemason’s Yard, a piece by the artist Canaletto, will be on display at the National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth from Friday, as part of the National Gallery’s 200th anniversary. The exhibition tells the story of how the painting came to Wales as a “refugee” to protect it from Nazi air raids on London during the Second World War. It was kept intact at the cavernous Manod slate mines, near Blaenau Ffestiniog in Gwynedd, and then returned to the UK’s capital after the risk of attacks was over. The Italian painter lived from 1697 to 1768 and this particular work is believed to have been painted in about 1725. Twelve pieces of the National Gallery’s collection will be on display at museums and art galleries across the UK. The Idyll and Industry exhibition in Wales will also include works by the likes of Richard Wilson, JMW Turner and Penry Williams. Image: Paintings were …

Port Talbot couple admit ‘dine and dash’ offences with £1,000 in unpaid bills | Wales

Port Talbot couple admit ‘dine and dash’ offences with £1,000 in unpaid bills | Wales

[ad_1] A couple from south Wales have admitted carrying out a string of “dine and dash” offences, racking up large bills for food and drink before leaving without paying. Bernard McDonagh, 41, and Ann McDonagh, 39, from Port Talbot, admitted five joint charges of fraud and will be sentenced at Swansea crown court this month. The pair dishonestly obtained food and drink for themselves and their family at four restaurants and one takeaway in south Wales with the unpaid bills totalling more than £1,000. It began in August last year when they defrauded the River House on the waterfront in Swansea of £267 of food and drink. The restaurant said that the couple, after running up a “very hefty bill”, promised to get money from a nearby cash point when their card was declined, but never returned. Speaking after the case, a spokesperson for the restaurant said: “We are delighted to hear justice has, at last, caught up with the pair. We are grateful to the public who have not only been a huge help …
