Premier League footballers wowed by music video created by students with severe disabilities

Fulham Football Club's players were among the first to hear ‘Are You Ready for Christmas?’ yesterday.

It's a Christmas single created by a group of young people attending The Children’s Trust School in Tadworth for children with complex education, health, therapy and care needs.

The group of eight students, known as CedarSuperSound, were involved in every step of the songs creation.

Teachers and staff used specialist equipment to enable the young people to select key words for the lyrics.

Each student was provided with specialist and adapted instruments to learn and practise using different parts of their body which, in turn, allowed them independent participation.

The final recording was aired for the very first time during Fulham FC’s visit.

UPDATE: Raheem Sterling has responded to alleged racist abuse he received during Manchester City's match with Chelsea yesterday

View this post on Instagram

Good morning I just want to say , I am not normally the person to talk a lot but when I think I need my point to heard I will speak up. Regarding what was said at the Chelsea game as you can see by my reaction I just had to laugh because I don’t expect no better. For example you have two young players starting out there careers both play for the same team, both have done the right thing. Which is buy a new house for there mothers who have put in a lot of time and love into helping them get where they are, but look how the news papers get there message across for the young black player and then for the young white payer. I think this in unacceptable both innocent have not done a thing wrong but just by the way it has been worded. This young black kid is looked at in a bad light. Which helps fuel racism an aggressive behaviour, so for all the news papers that don’t understand why people are racist in this day and age all i have to say is have a second thought about fair publicity an give all players an equal chance.

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is understood to be under the microscope of British intelligence due to his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin

Mr Abramovich, who was previously delayed in receiving a visa for the UK, gained Israeli citizenship earlier this year.

Along with several other Russian Oligarchs the multi billionaire has faced new measures including probes by UK authorities into his assets, property portfolio and travel activities.

The reasons according to sources within Whitehall for these measures brought against the Oligarchs are their intimate professional and financial association with the Kremlin.

It is thought that Roman Abramovich is an important key to the Russian governments bidding on several fronts and a major backer and supporter of Vladimir Putin.

The probing by the intelligence services has been approved at the highest level with Theresa May signing off the list of suspects.

The list is to be disseminated throughout Whitehall departments and NATO allies in an attempt to reduce the movement of those listed and the ability to conduct their business empires.

Oleg Deripaska, who is associated various British MPs and Evgeny Fokin, (a former senior officer with Russia’s SVR foreign intelligence service, held the position pf director with Mr Deripaska’s London-based energy company EN+) are also known to have joined Mr Abramovich on the list.

Another name on the list is Alisher Usmanov who recently had a stake in Arsenal Football Club and whose company has ties with Everton.

In spite of reports linking Roman Abramovich to the Russian GRU intelligence services the blues owner refused to comment on the investigation and has denied being a member of Putin’s inner circle.

A council approach to pub protection is paying off in Wandsworth

New figures from The Office for National Statistics show only 15 have been lost in the borough since 2001.

However, neighbouring boroughs like Merton have lost double that in the same time period.

Wandsworth council has taken direct action to prevent pubs being lost.

In 2016 it became the first authority in the UK to bring in protection measures called ‘Article 4 Directions.’

So changes to pubs have to go through the planning process, rather than being automatically allowed under ‘permitted development’ rules.

This means they can no longer be converted into other venues, such as mini-supermarkets, without the need for planning permission.
