Funeral details announced for Yorkshire Post correspondent Tom Richmond https://www.racingpost.com/news/funeral-details-announced-for-yorkshire-post-correspondent-tom-richmond/550761

Devastated to learn of the sudden passing of Tom Richmond of the Yorkshire Post. I cant think of any journalist who could juggle politics and horse racing, and yet be so expert at both. Tom helped me out at my lowest ebb when no one else would. Im going to miss him terribly.

It is with an overwhelming sense of sorrow that I must inform you that our dear friend and colleague Tom Richmond passed away suddenly this week. The Yorkshire Post family is still coming to terms with our loss. He truly embodied everything that we wanted to be as a newspaper...

What a marvellous debate and all thanks to @edyoungtweets @Andrew_Adonis @DavidAltonHL Baroness Smith, Lord Parkinson and Dominic Grieve for coming. Who would have thought it: a win for Disraeli at the CU! https://twitter.com/cambridgeunion/status/1501986701488660483

Today we're launching our inaugural #TrustInFood Index, an independent @YouGov report commissioned to answer the question: “Does Britain trust the food it eats?” 🤔🍽

It highlights major differences in British attitudes to global food and UK bought food.



Edward Young discusses Benjamin Disraeli


RIP Dr Richard Shephard MBE. Variously composer, headmaster, fundraiser, member of chapter, trustee, educationalist. And friend of @YorkMinChoir.

Incredibly sad news that my former headmaster Richard Shephard has died. He was a great man who changed the lives of many of us in the area. He deserves huge amounts of praise for what he did for York and for the Minster.

We are aware of Julian Metcalfe’s comments this morning, but he has not run the business for over ten years and we do not agree with his opinion.

We at Pret strongly believe we must take steps to stop the spread of the virus and tackle the new wave of infections

@paulwaugh @BorisJohnson @BBCRadio4 We are grateful for everything Julian has done for Pret, but to avoid confusion, he’s not run the business for over ten years.
