Adoboli, 38, has not lived in Ghana since he was four years old and describes himself as British. He should recognise the devastating human cost to me of being deported to Ghana,” Adoboli said. She said the case raises wider issues about deportation of offenders who have grown up in the UK and are settled here. Adoboli has launched a CrowdJustice campaign to raise funds to help pay his legal bills. A Home Office spokesperson said: “All foreign nationals who are given a custodial sentence will be considered for removal.

French artist Andria Darius Pancrazi takes photographs of pink buildings – a common sight in his home town of Bastia, a city on the island of Corsica. “Bastia is a very pink city,” he says. “From pale pinks to deep corals, from the 18th-century to the modern buildings, pink is a very popular choice there.” The colour has been a shifting source of inspiration for the artist. “It started as an aestheticisation of my home town and the memories I had there,” he explains. “Living abroad, in a fairly different climate, prompted me to find the reality that was hidden beyond those ethereal memories.”

Cuomo tries to walk back remark he admitted was ‘inartful’ and which drew fire from Republicans including TrumpNew York governor Cuomo in hot water for saying America 'was never that great'The New York governor Andrew Cuomo, who many believe is eyeing a White House run in 2020, has continued his attempts to walk back a controversial statement: that America “was never that great”. “Of course America is great and of course America has always been great.”His original phrasing, he said, had been “inartful”. Riffing on Trump’s famous campaign slogan, the governor said: “We’re not going to make America great again – it was never that great.”To gasps and laughter, he continued: “We have not reached greatness. In that campaign, Democrats including Barack Obama also riffed on the “Make America Great Again” slogan, although they chose to tell audiences America “was already great”. Cuomo continued to tweet retorts, accusing Trump of “hiding behind tweets” and, with reference to immigration policy, “ripping babies from their mothers’ arms”.

New midfield signing Lucas Torreira misses out despite a full week's training, while Aaron Ramsey has lost his place in the starting line-up. Petr Cech remains in goal despite a sketchy display against Manchester City last weekend, with Bernd Leno still on the bench. The sole change in the backline is at left-back, where Nacho Monreal comes in for Ainsley Maitland-Niles, who sustained a leg fracture against the champions. The holding midfielder pair of Matteo Guendouzi and Granit Xhaka keep their places, meaning there's no room for Uruguay international Torreira.

Today, four cables – known as interconnectors – between the UK and Ireland, France and the Netherlands have a capacity of 4GW, providing around 6% of Britain’s power supplies. Brexit poses one obvious risk, with the prospect of trading energy across borders becoming harder. He believes the links have played an important role in the UK’s energy system. Cheaper power from Europe sounds like good news for households hit by tariff rises blamed on rising wholesale costs. Other companies are building cables through the Channel tunnel, and planning to connect to electricity supplies as far away as Germany.

Arsenal news: Shkodran Mustafi has taken a sly dig at former boss Arsene WengerWenger reluctantly left Arsenal in the summer after 22 years at the club. In the latter years of his reign, the Frenchman was heavily criticised for his side’s defensive fragility. Some fans were concerned by the side’s insistence from passing out the back, which almost climaxed in a Petr Cech own goal. Mustafi was bought by Wenger in 2016 and featured in last Sunday’s defeat, but was complimentary of his new boss. “[Emery] told me the positives in my game and what to work on,” Mustafi told the Evening Standard.
