Gosport War Memorial Hospital deaths relatives deserve their day in court

Relatives deserve their day in court: the flagship BBC Panorama programme broadcast a shocking episode this week on what had been going on at the Gosport War Memorial NHS Hospital 20 years ago, showing how relatives are still awaiting justice, and that none of the senior individuals and managers at the time have ever been brought to book.

OUT IN THE FIELD: Street beggars, homelessness and a new cinema is in town

Regular readers will know I am not the Towner’s biggest fan but even I can’t stop raving about the new cinema on the ground floor of the concrete carbuncle. The auditorium seats more than 80 people, has a diverse programme of upcoming films with recent releases (we saw Widows recently and Olivia Coleman in The Favourite is on next month), documentaries, family screenings, queer film and screen classics. And it’s just £8.50 or even cheaper for members, concessions and students. Tonight, no doubt, the roof will be raised at the mayor’s fundraiser: The Greatest Showman Singalong. I cannot wait.
