Property news: WW2 bunkers with no windows being sold off as homes

Officials had considered turning a line of bunkers in the city into a museum – but were put off by the estimated  €1 million (£897,000) cost. Instead they decided to sell the bunkers – which once formed part of the Soviet Union’s Molotov Line – as potential homes priced at €14,000 to €18,000 (£12,500-16,100).

Without texture, everything we eat may as well be homogenized in a blender. Does that sound appetizing? Let’s talk about a few ways textural variance adds to…

Man Utd news: Paul Pogba blasts Luke Shaw critics after Leicester win | Football | Sport

The Manchester United defender has long been the subject of criticism, particularly over his weight and body shape. Such comments emerged again earlier this summer after a picture of the 23-year-old topless while on holiday in Dubai did the rounds on social media. Shaw’s development at Old Trafford has been stunted since a severe leg break having arrived at the club as the then-most expensive teenager ever from Southampton.

Your Money: Loyalty rarely pays off due to lack of interest | Personal Finance | Finance

So far only a handful of banks and building societies have announced savings rate increases following the Bank of England’s widely anticipated move to lift the base rate to 0.75 per cent last Thursday. This is the highest level in almost a decade, but the vast majority of loyal savers are yet to see any benefit.
