press secretary resigns
of Wales' Press Secretary, Sandy Henney, has resigned following a mix-up

of film to Boots under strict instruction to get an extra set of prints
for the Queen Mum. But it appears that there was a bit of a cock-up and

be good to actually walk across the river peacefully."

of football, Mr Hague said: "Who's playing?".
