Nottinghamshire Police today released CCTV footage which shows the final moments before footballer Jordan Sinnott (right) was attacked over a joke about one of his killers being ‘fat and ginger’ – evidence which led the three ‘to be brought to justice’. In the clip, Kai Denovan and Cameron Matthews are seen ‘following rapidly behind’ Mr Sinnott (left, circled) who is walking towards The Vine pub with two friends, Ben Bossons and Adam Towlson. Prosecutors said Denovan ‘flew immediately into a rage’ following a brief confrontation because the victim agreed with a ‘joke’ that the attacker was ‘fat and ginger’. The Matlock Town FC midfielder, 25, died in hospital after suffering a fractured skull and brain damage in an assault in the centre of Retford, Nottinghamshire, at around 2am on January 25. Matthews (inset left), 21, pleaded guilty to manslaughter at an earlier hearing, admitting he administered the fatal punch. Denovan (inset centre), 22, was also found guilty of manslaughter after a trial at Nottingham Crown Court. Sean Nicholson (inset right), 22, admitted affray in connection with the same incident.

As part of a £2billion anti-obesity drive, Boris Johnson on Monday announced plans to encourage cycling through a range of incentives including £50 vouchers to repair bicycles.

Until a global pandemic brought about lockdown, Rose Jones’ (right) artistic endeavours were largely focused on her fine art degree at Oxford Brookes University. But with the 20-year-old’s academic journey on hold, lately, upstairs in the family home, in a picturesque corner of Hampshire, Rose’s creative enterprises have taken a rather different, eyebrow-raising turn. She takes photos of herself, in various stages of undress (in the afternoon, with the sun beaming through her bedroom window is her favourite time) before posting the material online, behind a paywall. Her marketplace? A website called OnlyFans. Incredibly, this new endeavour has unfolded under the very same roof where Rosie recently said her last goodbye to her mother (pictured together inset), who died of cancer three weeks ago. Left: Kaya Corbridge is in the top 0.1 per cent of creators on OnlyFans, and last year bought her first home, in the North of England, outright for £125,000.
