Police who wrongly assumed prime suspect behind plot to kill Liberal leader Jeremy Thorpe’s ex-lover was dead make the same blunder AGAIN

A police force which wrongly assumed the prime suspect in one of Britain’s greatest political scandals was dead has made the same blunder again.

Gwent Police first declared two years ago that Andrew Newton was ‘deceased’ following an investigation into the plot to kill Liberal leader Jeremy Thorpe’s ex-lover, Norman Scott.

But they faced embarrassment when The Mail on Sunday discovered Newton, 72, living under an alias in Surrey. Detectives were forced to admit their error and rushed to the house, only to find he had vanished.

Now, in response to a formal complaint from a former Cabinet Minister about their ‘inept’ handling of the case, police have repeated their astonishing mistake.

Police warn Benedictine monks to 'end campaign of intimidation' against Cotswolds wildlife park owner who says they are 'stalking her' in a bid to get her off Abbey land

Dressed in a hooded coat, the shaven-headed monk stands stock-still and stares at wildlife park owner Melanie Meigh for more than half an hour.

It is part of a campaign of intimidation, alleges Miss Meigh, by Benedictine monks because they want her off their land.

Now police have warned the monk at Prinknash Abbey in the Cotswolds about the incident which left Miss Meigh, 58, fearing for her safety.

Any repeat of his ‘stalking’ may result in his arrest.

US Masters order annual golf tournament in tiny Cornish fishing village to stop awarding the winner a green jacket as it breaches copyright

The green jacket has long been a treasured prize in golf, to be worn only by the winner of one of the sport’s greatest tournaments.

Until, that is, a few amateurs in a Cornish fishing village affectionately copied the US Masters by adopting a green jacket for their own competition.

But the players in the Coverack Masters have been told by the mighty Augusta National club in Georgia they are breaching copyright and must stop.

Campaigners' fury after council that warned they had 'too little green space' is now covering a local park with new homes

Campaigners have voiced their fury over a council’s plans to build homes on a playing field – a decade after the local authority warned there was too little green space when the area’s population was virtually half what it is now.

The plan for 34 new homes on the two-acre Cedar Avenue playing field has infuriated residents of the densely populated Bridge Ward in Newark, Nottinghamshire.
