Strictly curse?

Round & About


Strictly Come Dancing has been the blame for several relationship break-ups or scandals, known as the “Strictly curse”.

The latest to be caught up in the drama is Seann Walsh and his married dance partner Katya Jones who have apologised after photos showing them kissing each other in the street during a night out came about – which they put down to being a “drunken mistake”.

Affordable housing

Round & About


There’s no denying affordable homes need to be built. But where? Here are two emotive arguments for both green belt building or brownfield sites. Which do you feel is right?

GREEN BELT: A lot of families move to the countryside for all the benefits of living in a beautiful green area. However, when it’s time for the children to leave the nest, can they really afford a property in their home town?

BROWNFIELD: Many industrial or commercial facilities that may have moved or ceased production have left huge footprints of vacant land. Should money be put into these areas to clear them, ready for affordable housing to be built?
