Max Verstappen fastest in final practice for Portuguese Grand Prix
Max Verstappen got the better of Lewis Hamilton to finish fastest in final practice for the Portuguese Grand Prix.
Verstappen, who trails Hamilton by a point in the standings, edged out his title rival by 0.236 seconds in Portimao.

Hamilton’s Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas was third ahead of Sergio Perez in the other Red Bull.

Hamilton is bidding to secure his 100th pole position later on Saturday, but Verstappen is ready to spoil the world champion’s century party.

Despite struggling in the final sector at the Algarve International Circuit, the Dutchman appears to hold a slight advantage over Mercedes heading into qualifying.

Esteban Ocon finished fifth for Alpine, with Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc sixth.

British driver Lando Norris – third in the championship following a fine start to the season – finished eighth for McLaren, 0.783secs off Verstappen’s pace.

Sebastian Vettel, who has struggled in the formative races of his Aston Martin career, was only 18th of the 20 runners, 1.7secs off the pace and one tenth slower than team-mate Lance Stroll.

Qualifying for Sunday’s race takes place at 3pm.

Return of clubbers to dancefloor offers ‘glimpse of the future’
A pilot event which saw around 3,000 clubbers return to the dancefloor has been hailed as a glimpse of what the future might hold by public health leaders.

Liverpool director of public health Matt Ashton said it was “wonderful” to see the looks on people’s faces at The First Dance, hosted by club night Circus, in the city on Friday.

Revellers, who all had to produce negative coronavirus tests, did not have to wear face coverings or social distance for the first time since before lockdown began.

It is hoped the event, the first of two taking place on consecutive nights, will pave the way for clubs across the country to reopen their doors.

Mr Ashton told BBC Breakfast on Saturday that the event gave a glimpse of what the future might hold but stressed it was still a scientific experiment about how more events could be opened in the future.

He added: “This is a scientific experiment, both before and after the event people have to return to doing the things they are supposed to, so following the rules in place.

“We have to deal with Covid still as if it is still around because it is, even if it is at low levels, so we have to be cautious in our approach. And for me that’s why it is so important that we collect the science around this to allow us to do this safely and properly in the future.

“But it is still wonderful to see the looks on people’s faces as they were at the event last night. It just gives a glimpse of what think we think the future might hold.”

When asked if the data from the pilots will be crucial to opening up society again in late June, Mr Ashton said: “Yeah, don’t forget this is a crucial part of our economy, in Liverpool it’s over 40% of our economic output, so it’s really important we start to get the economy opening again.

“But also just in terms of a return to normal life, all of us being social creatures and doing the things we want to do more.

“So the evidence base is absolutely essential.

“This is going to be part I think of a longer journey of understanding how we live with Covid more safely in the future.”

Inside the Bramley-Moore Dock warehouse, crowds packed the floor to dance shoulder-to-shoulder for the first time in more than a year.

Club-goers were seen hugging and kissing each other, with some sitting on others’ shoulders for a better view of the stage.

Speaking to BBC Breakfast on Saturday, DJ Marea Stamper, aka The Blessed Madonna, said that there had been an “incredible energy” at the event, and it had also been “incredibly emotional”.

She added: “I think we felt excited but also proud to be a part of creating the protocols that would lead to the reopening of all kinds of things, from football matches to any kind of event, it doesn’t have to be a big rave.”

Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden hailed the event as a “huge moment on the journey back to normality” but stressed that further loosening of restrictions will be led by the data.

He said: “Although this may seem like life getting back to normal these are science-led events, gathering valuable research as we leave no stone unturned to help us get back to the things we love this summer.

“We’re testing a range of settings, event set-ups, and systems to find the safest way to welcome back crowds. We are making good progress but we have been clear that decisions on reopening will be led by the data.”

The line-up for Friday included Circus founder and DJ Yousef, Lewis Boardman and The Blessed Madonna.

Fatboy Slim is among the acts due to perform on Saturday.

Sam Newson, the event producer, said the pilot was “vital” after the events industry had been “decimated” over the last year.

He said: “For the last 12 months, it has been a disaster.

“People have moved on, I’ve got colleagues who have lost houses, it has been incredibly hard and so to try and get this back up and running is incredibly important.”

He added: “I stood on stage early on and I had a little bit of a teary eye, I’m not going to lie, it is very emotional.

“Any event is special but with the amount of work that has gone into this and to be the first in the country in over 12 months, it is very special.”

Scientists will be looking to see whether crowds mixing and dancing indoors increases the risk of transmission of Covid-19.

Air quality and movement was also being monitored as part of a Loughborough University-led study to create clear guidance on how to design and operate non-domestic buildings to minimise risk.

The night is part of the Events Research Programme, which will also see crowds return to events including the FA Cup final and a music festival held in Liverpool’s Sefton Park.

Tory staff given one week to hand over communication about PM flat refurbishment
Conservative Party staff have been given one week to hand over all communication related to renovations of Boris Johnson’s flat in 11 Downing Street or face criminal consequences, according to reports.
Separate inquiries into how the redecoration work was funded are being carried out by the head of the Civil Service Simon Case, the independent adviser on ministers’ interests Lord Geidt, and the Electoral Commission.

The Times and The Sun reported all Conservative Party staff received an email from human resources in the name of Alan Mabbutt, a senior official and registered legal officer, about the Commission’s inquiry which told them: “You are put on notice that this is a criminal investigation.”

The email instructed that all communications had to be provided to the investigation by May 7.

The Times added that Mr Mabbutt said if staff “knowingly falsify, conceal, destroy or otherwise dispose of information” then they “could be committing a criminal offence of perverting the course of justice”.

Mr Johnson looked to shift attention away from the controversy as he insisted he was “laser-focused” on delivering the country’s priorities after the parliamentary session came to an end on Thursday.

But senior Labour MP Dame Margaret Hodge, who chaired the Public Accounts Committee spending watchdog, asked the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards to investigate his conduct over the flat revamp.

The Prime Minister has insisted the row over refurbishments to the flat where he lives with fiancee Carrie Symonds is a “farrago of nonsense”, adding: “I don’t think there’s anything to see here.”

He says he “personally” paid for the renovations but has refused to say whether he received an initial donation from the Conservative Party to cover the costs.

The coverage about the flat does not, according to YouGov, appear to have damaged the Prime Minister in the eyes of the voters, with the Tories extending their lead over Labour from 10 to 11 points this week despite polling showing only 14% of the public had not heard about the issue.

It was also revealed the Prime Minister’s phone number has been freely available on the internet for 15 years, having been published in a think tank press release and never deleted.

Relief as rule change allows outdoor family visits for care home residents
Care home residents will be able to spend time with loved ones in “low risk” visits without having to self-isolate on their return, the Government has said after being threatened with legal action.
From Tuesday, residents leaving their home for a walk or to visit a loved one’s garden will no longer have to isolate for two weeks on their return.

But those leaving for medical appointments and for overnight visits will still be required to self-isolate for 14 days, the PA news agency understands.

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) removed the requirement for outdoor, “low risk” visits after being threatened with legal action by the charity John’s Campaign.

Campaigners said the rule encourages care homes to act unlawfully by “falsely imprisoning” residents, with family members calling it “barbaric”.

Under the changes, residents on visits out must be accompanied by either a member of staff or one of their two nominated visitors, and follow social distancing throughout.

They cannot meet in groups or go indoors – except for the use of toilets – and public transport should be avoided where possible.

It is understood a resident would be able to eat outside at a restaurant or cafe with their care worker or nominated visitor if they agree this with the care home in advance.

Residents will also be able to vote in person in the upcoming local elections without having to self-isolate for 14 days afterwards.

The DHSC is expected to review the self-isolation requirement for more visits when it reaches the next stage of the Government’s road map on May 17.

It comes as new data shows that 95% of elderly residents have received one vaccine dose and 71% have received two.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “We know how challenging this time has been for care home residents, so I am pleased that they can now leave their homes to reunite with their loved ones outdoors.

“With the data continuing to head in the right direction and as restrictions ease, it is my priority to keep increasing visits for residents in the coming weeks in a safe and controlled way.”

The DHSC said updated guidance will be published in due course.

John’s Campaign co-founder Julia Jones said the rule change did not go far enough, saying it was “massively inadequate” that the isolation requirement remains for those who leave to visit the doctor.

Asked if she was celebrating the move, she told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme: “I’m waiting until we see the guidance.

“I still struggle to see what legal right the Government thinks it has for preventing people with full mental capacity from walking out of their homes the same as every other member of the population. I struggle to see why they should be under surveillance.”

Leigh Day partner Tessa Gregory, who is representing John’s Campaign, said legal proceedings were due to be issued next week.

She said: “This is good news but as always the devil will be in the detail and John’s Campaign will be scrutinising the new guidance once it is published to ensure that it is lawful and fit for purpose.”

Elsewhere, the Department for Transport has missed a deadline set by MPs for grading countries under the new traffic light system for international travel.

Many people are eager to discover what countries are on the green list to avoid the need to self-isolate, as the ban on overseas leisure travel is expected to be lifted for people in England from May 17 as part of the next easing of coronavirus restrictions.

The Commons’ Transport Select Committee issued a report last week which stated that the green, amber and red lists of destinations must be published by Saturday “at the latest”, but the Government said the lists will be made public in “early May”.

Tory MP Huw Merriman, who chairs the committee, said the categorisation of countries is “the bare minimum” that the travel industry and consumers need to make preparations for May 17.

Meanwhile, celebrities Sir Lenny Henry, Liz Hurley and David Walliams have joined TV actors Lydia West and Navin Chowdhry in a campaign to encourage people to have their vaccine.

The stars pretend to audition as they tackle misinformation about Covid vaccines.

Ms Hurley urges people to “roll up your sleeve, it’s not just your own life you’ll be saving”, while Sir Lenny says: “People in the black, Asian, ethnic and minority community are 20% less likely to take up the vaccine.”

NHS England said more than nine in 10 people over 45 have received at least one dose of a Covid vaccine, while 120,000 appointments were booked before 9am on Friday as vaccines opened up to people aged 40 and 41.

The Government said a further 15 people had died within 28 days of testing positive for Covid-19 as of Friday, bringing the UK total to 127,517, while a further 2,381 cases were confirmed, bringing the total to 4,416,623.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Man United must listen to fans’ views ahead of protest
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer stressed the importance of fans being heard as thousands of Manchester United supporters prepare to descend on Old Trafford for what the manager hopes will be a “peaceful” protest.
Departing executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward followed co-chairman Joel Glazer in apologising to supporters for the club’s attempt to join the Super League at an emergency fans forum on Friday morning.

The breakaway plans swiftly collapsed but fan anger is not going away anytime soon, with United supporters demanding change at the top of a club that has been in control of the Glazer family since 2005.

Around 10,000 supporters are expected to descend on Old Trafford ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash with rivals and fellow prospective Super League members Liverpool as they push to change the ownership structure at the club.

United boss Solskjaer said: “It’s important that the fans’ views are listened to and that we communicate better.

“My job is to focus on the football side and that we have the best possible team.

“As I’ve said before, I’ve been backed, I’ve had great support from the club and the owners and I’m sure I will get the backing again to go one step further.

“But I’m so happy that all the clubs agreed that this shouldn’t be the way of moving forward.

“Then again, when the protests are on, it’s important that they go in a good fashion and that we keep it peaceful.”

Solskjaer spoke to a group of fans last Thursday as they took their protests to the training ground, where they brandished banners reading ‘Glazers Out’ and ‘51% MUFC 20’ in reference to the model of ownership used widely in Germany.

Several hundred more showed their anger at Old Trafford last Saturday afternoon and far more are expected on Sunday, when Solskjaer does not believe the protest will be a distraction heading into the “massive, massive game” against Liverpool.

“The players are focused on the game and nothing else,” he said. “They’ve handled difficult situations before.

“Of course it was a strange week before the Leeds game (last Sunday) after the Super League announcement.

“But I’ve got to say that I’m not worried one second that our mind is not on the football when it happens.

“I think you saw here in the semi that the players are fully, fully focused on performing.”

United head into the match against Jurgen Klopp’s men fresh from Thursday’s swashbuckling 6-2 win against Roma in the first leg of their Europa League semi-final.

Solskjaer’s second-placed side are looking to delay neighbours Manchester City’s coronation as Premier League champions and dent Liverpool’s Champions League hopes.

“We know what they have done the last three or four seasons,” he said ahead of Sunday’s Old Trafford encounter.

“They have been top of the league, they’ve won the Champions League and they’ve had some amazing seasons.

“That’s the challenge for us, to have that consistency now that we move up the table and that we also challenge City, then that they feel that they still need to win a few games.”

Pfizer and BioNTech ask EU to clear vaccine for 12 to 15-year-olds
Pfizer and BioNTech have submitted a request for European Union drug regulators to extend the approval of the companies’ coronavirus vaccine to include children aged 12 to 15.

In a statement on Friday, the two companies said their submission to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) was based on an advanced study in more than 2,000 adolescents that showed the vaccine to be safe and effective.

The children will continue to be monitored for longer-term protection and safety for another two years.

The move could offer younger and less at-risk populations in Europe access to the jabs for the first time.

BioNTech and Pfizer had previously requested their emergency use authorisation with the US Food and Drug Administration to be extended to children aged 12-15.

The Covid-19 vaccine made by Pfizer and BioNTech was the first to be approved by the EMA in December, when it was licensed for anyone aged 16 and over across the 27-nation EU.

German health minister Jens Spahn welcomed the news, saying: “This can make a further real difference to our vaccine campaign, if approval is granted.”

The number of people in England with Covid-19 drops 40% in a week
The number of people in England estimated to have Covid-19 has dropped 40% in a week, according to new figures.
The number of people in England estimated to have Covid-19 has dropped 40% in a week, according to new figures.

The Office for National Statistics (ONS) data, which covers private households, shows an estimated 54,200 people were likely to have tested positive for Covid-19 in the week to April 24, down from 90,000 the previous week.

This means around one in 1,010 people in private households in England had Covid-19 in the week to April 24, down from one in 610.

It is the lowest figure since the week to September 5, when the estimate stood at one in 1,400.

Paul Hunter, professor in medicine from the University of East Anglia, said of the findings: “What makes this week’s results particularly important is that this would be the first week when there would be any evidence that the relaxation of April 12 would have had a negative impact on the epidemic.

“That there is in fact no evidence of an increased transmission risk is reassuring that for the time being at least it looks like the current road map is still on target.”

However, Rowland Kao, professor of data science at the University of Edinburgh, said that while the “continued decline is good news and should be celebrated”, the ONS survey does not yet “provide us with more information about what recent changes in restrictions are doing”.

When modelling the level of infection among different age groups in England, the ONS said rates have decreased for those between the age of two and school year 11, and for those aged 35 and over.

But for those from school year 12 to age 34, the trend is uncertain.

Overall, people testing positive has decreased in all regions of England except in Yorkshire and the Humber and in eastern England, where the trend is uncertain.

Meanwhile, in Wales, around one in 1,570 people is estimated to have had Covid-19 in the week to April 24 – down from one in 840 in the previous week, and the lowest since the week to September 10.

In Northern Ireland, the estimate is around one in 940 people, down from one in 660 in the previous week and the lowest since estimates began for Northern Ireland in October.

The estimate for Scotland is around one in 640, down from one in 560 and the lowest since estimates began for Scotland in October.

It comes after Professor Tim Spector, epidemiologist at King’s College London, said the UK has “one of the lowest rates in Europe at the moment” and the country was on track to reach herd immunity.

Referring to data from the Covid Symptom Study, which he runs, he told Sky News: “It looks like at the moment that we’re past that pandemic period and we’re moving into what we call the endemic period where we get low levels of infection, and occasional outbreaks, but they don’t spread to the rest of the population, and the general risk is low.”

He said that, in regions of low infection, people who have been vaccinated “should be much more relaxed and less stressed out”.

He added: “I know a lot of people are still very worried about coming out of doors or pubs opening or restaurants…but for me this is a very reassuring picture and we should be a bit more upbeat about it, and focusing on the good news, not just the bad news or the possibility of something bad happening in the future.”

He added: “What isn’t appreciated is how well this vaccination programme is working, and looking at equivalent countries like Israel they’ve actually got rid of all their Covid restrictions, and they have quite similar rates to us at the moment.

“So it’s not zero, but it seems a manageable range that we can cope with so I’m pretty bullish and I think we ought to start recognising that people, particularly I’m worried about older people who have had both vaccinations, should be much more free to see other people and get their social lives back and their mental health back, particularly those that are the kept prisoner in care homes at the moment, it’s a disgrace that they’re still under these severe restrictions.”

He said there was a need to “get our minds around the fact that the risk will never be zero” and that life would need to go back to normal.

“I’m confident that these data are showing us that this will happen, and we’re reaching herd immunity.”

Neo-Nazi police officer jailed for membership of banned group
The first British police officer to be convicted of belonging to a neo-Nazi terrorist group has been jailed for more than four years.

Ben Hannam, 22, was found guilty of membership of banned right-wing extremist group National Action (NA) in 2016 until September 2017, following a trial at the Old Bailey.

He had been working as a probationary officer for the Metropolitan Police for nearly two years before he was found on a leaked database of users of extreme right-wing forum Iron March and arrested last year.

Hannam, who pleaded guilty to possessing a prohibited image of a child, was also convicted of lying on his application and vetting forms to join the force and having two terror documents detailing knife combat and making explosive devices.

Judge Anthony Leonard QC sentenced Hannam, who was last week sacked by the Met for gross misconduct, to a total of four years and four months on Friday, with an extra one-year licence period.

“I consider what you did to be very serious and you have harmed public trust in the police by your deceit,” the judge told him.

“I accept your politics… played absolutely no part in your policing and you provided value for the salary you obtained.

“And I do not believe you had any plans to infiltrate yourself into the police force so as to be useful to the far right at any stage. There is absolutely no evidence for that.”

Hannam, wearing beige chinos, a dark blue blazer, white shirt and tie showed no emotion as he was sentenced and taken down to the cells.

Prosecutor Dan Pawson-Pounds said the evidence showed Hannam had “a consistent adherence to neo-Nazi tropes between 2014 and 2019” demonstrated by his internet downloads, social media comments and schoolwork.

The court heard that as early as May 2014, Hannam had expressed intolerant views, writing: “I’m not racist, I just don’t like people who’s (sic) skin is darker than mine!”

His former history teacher said he made “inappropriate” and “offensive” anti-immigration comments during a school Brexit debate.

In March 2016, Hannam signed up to Iron March when he joined the London branch of neo-Nazi group NA.

Hannam, who has autism, told jurors he was “desperate to impress” an older NA organiser who gave him free stickers and badges.

He went on to try to recruit a new member via Iron March and posed in an official photograph on Crosby Beach at the NA national conference in Liverpool in April 2016, jurors were told.

On December 16 2016, NA was proscribed after it glorified the terrorist murder of Labour MP Jo Cox.

But Hannam, of Edmonton, north London, continued to meet high-profile figures in the neo-Nazi group.

Between January and July 2017, he saw them in pubs, at an outdoor boxing event, and when he spray-painted an NA symbol in a storm drain.

On July 19, days after the graffiti trip, which was filmed for a promotional video, Hannam applied to join Scotland Yard.

He fraudulently denied he had ever been a member of the British National Party “or similar organisation”.

Mr Pawson-Pounds said the Met paid Hannam more than £66,000 in salary and benefits and he performed his duties to “an acceptable standard”.

Scotland Yard has said that checks on Hannam’s work revealed no complaints from colleagues or members of the public.

When officers searched his bedroom in March last year, they found Nazi-style posters, notes detailing his membership of NA, as well as NA badges and business cards.

He had stored on a USB stick two documents said to be useful to a terrorist.

Mass murderer Anders Breivik’s manifesto contained guidance on making radiological, chemical and biological weapons, and improvised explosive devices, while the second document detailed how to carry out a fatal knife attack.

Aisla Williamson, defending, said Hannam’s autism made him “vulnerable” to targeting and grooming by NA.

She said he was arrested some three years after his involvement with the group came to an end and that he joined the police, was baptised into the Church of Latter Day Saints and went on to form long-term relationships.

“There is no evidence at all he brought extremist views to his work as a police officer,” she said.

“There is clear evidence of a change of mindset. That is both through his work as a police officer and his involvement in the church.”

Tube workers to strike on polling day
London Underground workers are to strike on polling day over the dismissal of a colleague.

Members of the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) on the Central Line will walk out for 24 hours from 9pm on May 5 to 9pm on May 6, when elections are being held, including for the capital’s mayor.

The union claimed RMT rep Gary Carney had been unfairly sacked.

RMT general secretary Mick Cash said: “The sacking of Gary Carney is a blatant case of victimisation for trade union activities and his colleagues have made it clear that they stand shoulder to shoulder with him in this fight for justice.

“RMT will have no hesitation in escalating this dispute if LU don’t right this wrong.”

Nick Dent, director of customer operations for London Underground, said: “We are absolutely committed to ensuring that the Tube is as safe as possible for staff and customers at all times, something that is especially important as more customers return to the network following the easing of coronavirus restrictions.

“We have strict, long-standing drug and alcohol testing policies that have been agreed by all of our trade unions and will always take a zero-tolerance stance as part of our commitment to safety.

“We are disappointed by the RMT’s decision to announce this strike action. We urge them to call it off, and we remain open for further discussions.

“There may be some disruption to customers but we will do all we can to run a regular service on the Central Line during this action, should it go ahead.

“We will ensure that full travel information is available prior to the action so that customers can plan their journeys.”

The union said its member was not avoiding a drug and alcohol test.

Noel Clarke suspended by Bafta after sexual misconduct allegations
Actor and producer Noel Clarke has “vehemently” denied sexual misconduct accusations levelled against him as Bafta suspended his membership.
The academy said it had also suspended his outstanding British contribution to cinema award “in light of the allegations of serious misconduct” against the 45-year-old.

The claims were levelled against the actor, best known for appearing in Doctor Who and for co-creating The Hood Trilogy, in The Guardian newspaper.

It said 20 women, who knew Clarke in a professional capacity, had come forward with allegations of misconduct.

Clarke, currently appearing in ITV thriller Viewpoint, said: “In a 20-year career, I have put inclusivity and diversity at the forefront of my work and never had a complaint made against me.

“If anyone who has worked with me has ever felt uncomfortable or disrespected, I sincerely apologise.

“I vehemently deny any sexual misconduct or wrongdoing and intend to defend myself against these false allegations.”

Bafta awarded Clarke one of its highest honours – the outstanding British contribution to cinema prize – earlier this month.

The academy said: “In light of the allegations of serious misconduct regarding Noel Clarke in The Guardian, Bafta has taken the decision to suspend his membership and the Outstanding British Contribution to Cinema award immediately and until further notice.”

Broadcaster Sky said “effective immediately” it would be “halting” Clarke’s “involvement in all future Sky productions”.

Clarke has starred in three series of Sky Original production Bulletproof.

A spokesperson for Sky said: “Sky stands against all forms of sexual harassment and bullying and takes any allegations of this nature extremely seriously.

“Effective immediately, we have halted Noel Clarke’s involvement in any future Sky productions.”

Vertigo Films, the UK producers behind Bulletproof, said in a statement: “We are devastated to hear about these allegations and have launched an urgent investigation to find out if any apply to any Vertigo Films productions.

“Our immediate concern is for any cast or crew who may have had a negative experience on set.

“We have robust procedures in place for reporting incidents, including the ability to raise issues anonymously.

“And while no issues have been flagged to us, we stand ready to support anyone who has had a negative experience on the show and encourage you to come forward with confidence.

“Effective immediately, Noel Clarke is removed from any Vertigo Films production.”

Clarke made his first TV appearance more than 20 years ago in the Channel 4 series Metrosexuality, and gained fame for his roles as Mickey Smith in Doctor Who and Wyman Norris in Auf Wiedershen, Pet.

He later wrote and starred in the acclaimed film trilogy Kidulthood, Adulthood and Brotherhood, and directed two of them.

Clarke was first recognised by Bafta in 2009, when he won the Rising Star prize.

Management and production company 42 M&P said it stopped representing Clarke earlier this month.

A spokesman said: “Noel Clarke was a client of 42 M&P until April this year but the company no longer represents him.”
