NEWS IN BRIEF

 

HEADLINE OF THE WEEK

'Global avocado shortage sparks crime wave'

Brunch-lovers prepare to panic: the Metro reports that the global avocado shortage is set to deepen thanks a wave of avocado-related robberies in New Zealand. Clearly what we need is a few avo-go heroes to put a stop to this madness.

 

ARTS

Led Zeppelin legends Jimmy Page and Robert Plant are currently in court facing accusations that they nicked the tune Stairway to Heaven from little-known 1960s psychedelic rockers Taurus.  Will it be a case of ‘No Stairway, denied’?

 

SPORT

At Euro 2016, England beat Wales 2-1 in the much-anticipated ‘battle of Britain’. Meanwhile, Northern Ireland overcame Ukraine 2-1. And, while there’s been some violent disorder over in France during the first week of the tournament, not all football supporters are mindless cretins, as these litter-picking Irish fans prove.

 

TV

To celebrate the EU referendum, Antoines de Caunes and Jean Paul Gaultier return with a Eurotrash special. The show, which brings together a selection of (often naked) lunatics from across the continent, complete with ridiculous British accents via voiceover, was essential viewing in the 90s, and this one-off episode isn’t straying from the tried-and-tested formula. Highlights include a fruit-based fortune teller and a man who does paintings with his dick

This week also saw the return of Netflix female prison drama Orange is the New Black and HBO revealED Larry David has signed up to make a ninth series of Curb Your Enthusiasm, which sounds pretty, pretty good to us.
