Bahrain has discovered its biggest oil field in more than 80 years.

The “highly significant” oil and deep gas resource is thought to dwarf the Gulf kingdom’s current reserves, according to an official announcement on Sunday. It is located in the Khaleej al-Bahrain basin, located off the country’s west coast.

Exclusive: #PayMeToo campaign launched to close gender pay gap

Labour’s Stella Creasy and fellow female MPs urge women to hold employers to account and take action if promises are unfulfilled

A group of female MPs have joined forces to encourage women to hold their employers to account and demand action over the gender pay gap, as the deadline for reporting nears.

Led by Labour MP for Walthamstow, Stella Creasy, MPs will on Monday launch an online campaign called #PayMeToo, which aims to give working women advice on how to tackle the gender pay where they work.

Sisi poised to declare landslide victory in Egypt election

Early results show president winning more than 90% of vote having silenced opponents

The Egyptian president, Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, is expected to declare a landslide victory after an election in which his only challenger was a supporter of his rule.

Preliminary results released last Thursday indicated that roughly 40% of the electorate turned out to vote, with 92% choosing Sisi. On Friday, this was revised to 42%, with Sisi securing 96.9% of valid votes, exactly the same as his last electoral victory in 2014.

Pay all UK 25-year-olds a £10,000 inheritance, says thinktank

IPPR suggests government could create a citizens’ wealth fund to help address inequality

All UK-born citizens should be given £10,000 as a “universal minimum inheritance” when they turn 25 to help address growing wealth inequality, a thinktank has proposed.

Tax reforms and a selloff of assets including the government’s stake in Royal Bank of Scotland could help create a citizens’ wealth fund worth £186bn by 2029/30, the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) said.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are no-shows at Easter service

Couple conspicuous by their absence as royal family gathers at church where they will marry


The Queen has sent her “heartfelt congratulations” to the Royal Air Force on its centenary as she celebrated Easter at the church where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will marry in May.

The engaged couple were conspicuous by their absence at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, on Sunday, as was Prince Philip, who has retired from public duties at 96.

Pacific workers, not backpackers, should do Australia’s regional work – World Bank

Boost to Pacific economies would be equivalent to 26% of Australia’s entire aid budget for the region, report argues

Australia should consider abolishing the three-month regional work requirement for holidaying backpackers and fill the labour gap with an expanded seasonal worker program to help boost Pacific economies, the World Bank argues in a new report.

Backpackers outnumber seasonal workers by six to one in Australia’s agricultural sector, with more than 36,000 taking jobs, mainly in horticulture, each year.

When 26.2 miles just isn't enough – the phenomenal rise of the ultramarathon

They are an almost-impossible test of the human body and spirit, yet the number of ultramarathons has increased 1,000% over the last decade. Adharanand Finn asks what’s behind this rapid increase – and whether racing 100 miles or more is actually good for you

A while ago, I was standing at the office tea point when a colleague who had heard I was a runner asked me if I did ultramarathons – the term for any foot race longer than the 26.2 miles of a standard marathon. He looked disappointed when I told him I didn’t.

“Triathlons?” he asked.

It sounds crazy but I could cry thinking about how much I love this bundle of fur | Catherine Burrell

I’m part of a study looking into whether dogs improve human health. I think I know the answer

In little more than six weeks, my small life and withered heart have become immense. All it took was the simple love of a dog – an adorable, scruffy, year-old mongrel of the small oodle variety and with the softest eyes I’ve ever seen on a canine.

Teddy be his name and joining me on adventures be his game.

Bernice King on the 50 years since her father's death: 'This nation is awoke'

Martin Luther King’s daughter believes the challenges of the past 15 months have strengthened her father’s legacy, not diminished it

Of all the many faces of Martin Luther King that will be invoked this week as America marks the 50th anniversary of his assassination – King the orator of the mountaintop speech, King the non-violent protester marching towards Montgomery, King the visionary with the dream of justice rolling down like a mighty stream – the most tender is the Martin Luther King of the kissing game.

He would play it with his wife Coretta and four young children whenever he got back to the family home in Atlanta, Georgia, after long days and nights on the civil rights trail. Having braved police batons and attack dogs across the deep south, he would finally turn into the drive of what was to be his last home in Sunset Avenue, where he would be met by a little girl rushing towards him and leaping into his arms.

From The Wizard of Oz to Top Hat – why the 1930s is my favourite film decade

Depression-era audiences escaped into a whirl of glamour, fantasy and monsters in a decade that ushered in Hollywood’s golden age

The 1930s were the making of Hollywood. When the decade began, films were monochrome, still sometimes silent (the majority had sound only from 1929), and largely uncensored. By the end, some were in glorious Technicolor, most had sound, and all were obliged to conform to a strict code of wholesomeness: a transformation embodied on screen in The Wizard of Oz.

Anna Campbell’s father: ‘I don’t think I had any right to stop her fighting in Syria’

Dirk Campbell was shocked when his 26-year-old daughter said she was going to join Kurdish forces in Syria. Following her death in action, he talks about her journey from idealist to freedom fighter

When Anna Campbell told her father of her plan to join Kurdish forces fighting Isis, he made a joke that he will forever regret. It was May last year, and the 26-year-old had travelled from her home in Bristol to his, in Lewes, East Sussex, to break the news.

“By then, I knew enough to know that it would imperil her life,” says Dirk Campbell, 67, “but all I could think of to say was: ‘Well, Anna, it’s been nice knowing you.’ I think I was trying to be funny, but she just looked miffed. I think she wanted me to engage with it and either go, ‘Oh, how wonderful,’ or to try to argue her out of it. But I sort of just accepted it. Ten months later, she is dead.”

How did we let modern slavery become part of our everyday lives? | Felicity Lawrence

Society abhors exploitation but we are complicit. The cheap goods and services consumers expect makes exploitation inevitable

Since the Modern Slavery Act of 2015, British companies over a certain size have been required to report on slavery in their supply chains. Their statements are both shocking and admirable. Shocking because they make clear that the incidence of slavery has become normalised once again – and not just in criminal operations such as the illegal drugs trade or trafficking for prostitution, but in the mainstream economy. The declarations are prefaced with management expressions of abhorrence, of course, but there they are, another note alongside the annual accounts. They are admirable, however, in that transparency must be the first step to tackling this phenomenon.

Last month the National Crime Agency reported a 35% annual rise in the number of suspected slavery victims found in the UK, with more than 5,000 people referred to the government mechanism that supports them in 2017. Labour exploitation, rather than sexual exploitation, was the most common type of modern slavery cited.

Of course the ultras are afraid: their Brexit now looks toxic | Polly Toynbee
They are being forced to face Brexit realities, with red lines crossed, hefty bills to be paid and border issues unresolved

Easter, spring, rebirth? Not this year. Instead there is trepidation, heartache and alarm at what’s to come. When the leader of the House called for Big Ben to ring out from its scaffolding on Brexit day, Theresa May said no: this ends not with a bong but a whimper. Easy to see why remainers are wrapped in shrouds of woe, haunted by the tick, tick, tick of the countdown. But why are the triumphant Brexiters so furious, suspicious and vengeful? They won their four-decade dream of “freedom” and “control”. Why are they so bloody miserable? Instead of hope, the victors see saboteurs and conspiracies everywhere.

The referendum set a fuse under democratic institutions, yet it’s the old Tory “establishment” who are turning into anarchist bomb throwers. They know they will have to defend the indefensible for ever. No instant economic calamity, as claimed by Project Fear may happen on Brexit day, but a slow frog-boiler of losses to growth (estimated by the government to be 2-8%), which will see the UK fall further behind erstwhile equals. How will they escape blame?

LGBT people need to rediscover their rage in this age of protest | Caspar Salmon
As the film 120 Beats per Minute shows, queer activism is at its best when it’s angry and combative – and there’s no shortage of causes to help

When director Robin Campillo won the prize for best film last month at France’s César awards, he used the opportunity to plead for the rights of French sex workers, drug users and migrants. The star of 120 Beats per Minute, Nahuel Pérez Biscayart, upon winning a César for most promising actor, spoke out on the subject of abortion rights in his home country of Argentina. This is all to say that the film, released in the UK last week, has politics coursing through its veins. In a time of great political division, its clarion call for protest and its questions about queer identity are perhaps more urgent than ever.

The film tells the story of a group of Parisian activists in the 1990s who form the French arm of the protest group ACT UP. Consisting of HIV and Aids sufferers and assorted queer folk, the collective takes radical action to remind society of the savage Aids epidemic that predominantly affected gay men, and to campaign for better laws and access to medication. The film underlines divisions between group members who are unsure about whether to be more radically queer and in-yer-face, or whether that belligerence undermines their efforts for recognition. What is unmistakable, however, is a vigour and excitement about the idea of protesting: there is a nostalgia for the concept of marching together, for the camaraderie of hatching plans. The film proposes homosexuality as a vibrant and questioning counterpoint to polite society; its protagonists are young, aware and angry. It could not be more burningly topical.

? I’m a sucker for a good meme, but are they degrading our politics?
An exhibition at the Design Museum makes clear that subversive images are the currency of echo chambers on both the left and the right. But there are limits to a purely visual society

I’ll tell you what I really admire about Donald Trump: he invented a haircut. OK, it doesn’t look good. It looks like someone shaved a golden retriever, then glued half of the hair on to Boss Nass, king of the Gungans. But if you think it’s easy to come up with something new, give it a try. And how about that weird, infantile yet camp phrasing he uses on Twitter? Do you see what an achievement it is to invent your own syntax? Very hard!

Trump’s face, huge tie, baggy suit and narcissistic manner all make him – apologies for this – iconic. Easily recognisable when reduced to a few essential elements, he represents our moment in history. He crops up a lot in the excellent exhibition Hope to Nope: Graphics and Politics 2008-18 at the Design Museum in London, which demonstrates that good design is an elusive, amoral quantity. Shepard Fairey’s Obama poster struck a chord around the world, becoming a totem for change. When a different demographic saw the same possibility in a red trucker’s cap, we didn’t like it so much. The Make America Great Again slogan is written in Times New Roman, the world’s default font, and was seen as conveying an unaffected, everyman appeal. Genius, or lazy luck?

How to solve the aid sector crisis? Don’t employ expats | Emma Nicholson

My charity is locally built, managed and sustainable, but most small organisations like us receive no government support

I can guarantee that the charity I have been running in Iraq for the past 26 years will not be embarrassed by the shocking behaviour of our expat staff, as recently highlighted in the press. We don’t have any expat staff.

I founded Amar International to help the many thousands of Iraqis maimed by chemical weapons, the Marsh Arabs forced into tented exile in Iran, and the countless other victims of Saddam Hussein’s genocidal regime.

Atheists who bring logic to the Easter story are missing the point | Julian Baggini

Having faith is a complex business. To assume that religious people are either crazy or stupid is lazy

Many years ago, I had to recount the life of Jesus to a young Taiwanese student who knew nothing about Christianity. As I told him about the virgin birth, the miracles, crucifixion and resurrection, he responded with incredulous laughter.

Most nonbelievers in traditionally Christian cultures would show a bit more respect. But inside, our reaction is often pretty much the same: how can people really believe this stuff? Rising from the grave isn’t even the most preposterous part of the Easter story. Far more bizarre is the claim that God had to send his son to die for our sins. And if God really wanted all humanity to heed his message, why did the resurrected Christ only reveal himself to a few select people before ascending to heaven?

Simon Tisdall | Will clashes over Gaza cause a wider Middle Eastern conflict?
Lebanon, Iran and other nations may now be drawn into a spiral of conflict

Tightly wound and anticipating trouble, Israeli troops opened fire before the Gaza border protests had even begun. The Palestinian health ministry said Omar Samour, a 31-year-old farmer, was picking parsley in his field near Khan Yunis early on Friday morning when he was killed. Another farmer was injured by shrapnel. Israel’s military later confirmed its tanks had fired at “suspicious figures” on the border.

Samour’s death was a grim augury of what was to come. As Palestinians observed a day of mourning on Saturday, both sides warned of possible escalation in the weeks ahead. But a bigger question is exercising regional analysts. Will this violent yet long-predicted rekindling of the Israel-Palestine conflict trigger a wider crisis drawing in Lebanon, Syria and Iran?

Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action

Arsène Wenger is given a striking decision, Hugo Lloris climbs the wrong table and Christian Benteke’s woes rumble on

Alexandre Lacazette heard one of the loudest cheers when he came on for Danny Welbeck against Stoke City. Arsène Wenger said Welbeck had hurt his back and so Lacazette’s return from a knee injury seemed even more timely – given Arsenal play CSKA Moscow in the Europa League on Thursday, for which Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is cup-tied. Wenger loved the gesture Aubameyang made towards the end, passing up a possible hat-trick by allowing the Frenchman to take their second penalty – from which he scored. The manager said it showed the strikers had a good understanding. But can they prosper together in the long-term? It seemed significant that Wenger moved Aubameyang to the left to accommodate Lacazette as the No 9 and then spoke of how the former had played off the left at St-Etienne, and for Borussia Dortmund when they had Robert Lewandowski. Is this how Wenger sees the pair working? David Hytner

South Africa v Australia: fourth Test, day four – live!
  • Updates from the final match of the series in Johannesburg
  • Feel free to get in touch on email or tweet @JPHowcroft

76th over: South Africa 202-3 (Elgar 59, du Plessis 81) Nathan Lyon has the final over before lunch but Du Plessis is not blocking his way to the break, he’s ecky-thumping Australia’s premier spinner over square-leg for a maximum. “A little bit top-edgey” says Allan Border in the manner of Simon Cowell critiquing Aretha Franklin.

75th over: South Africa 195-3 (Elgar 59, du Plessis 74) Mat Renshaw is having a bowl, the big lad rolling over some nudies from around the wicket. South Africa respect them, nurdling a few singles to keep the scoreboard ticking over.

Robert Wilson has logged on, and I’m nervous everything I’m publishing would pass a second pair of editorial eyes. “Neha Mehta makes a decent point about Warner paying an extra tax for his social class (search pregame, just after the preamble) but, as a fully paid-up chav, I would claim that it’s important to specify the tariff in question. We wideboys and shopgirls live in a moral universe the bourgeois has long abandoned. We have behaviour, you have personality disorders, we’re not autistic, we’re thick, we’re never big-boned victims of fat-shaming, we’re morally obese. We can be weighed, measured, judged and dismissed - you guys must be understood. You orbit in your moral space-station, pathologized, medicalised and ultimately forgiven while we here in Scumbag Central on the planet’s surface trying desperately to breathe the thin, noxious atmosphere of pure Calvinism. Ceci dit, as the French would say, the fact remains that David Warner is a titanic gobshite.”

Ian Poulter clinches Masters place with dramatic play-off win at Houston Open
• Poulter edges out Beau Hossler in sudden-death play-off
• ‘It’s going to take a little while to sink in. I’m super excited’

There must now be a clear and present danger of the Masters proving anticlimactic. Ian Poulter, a player utterly dejected when sharing 123rd place after the opening round of the Houston Open, a player wrongly informed he had qualified for the Masters before falling to a heavy defeat at the WGC Match Play and a player who needed to convert a birdie putt from 19ft to prolong that Augusta dream, is a winner once again. The circumstances of Poulter’s triumph belied sceptical theories about golf’s lack of appeal.

Poulter strode to victory in Houston, at the first play-off hole against the earlier inspired Beau Hossler, in a manner that summed up his ferociously competitive attitude. This marked his maiden strokeplay success on the PGA Tour. The additional prize is so crucial: Poulter will be afforded the 87th and final Masters spot.

Tyson Fury could be strongest contender to Anthony Joshua’s crown | Sean Ingle
Deontay Wilder could well be Anthony Joshua’s next test – but his biggest one may prove to be Tyson Fury

At some point, surely, the money will talk. And the negotiations between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder, which increasingly carry the pheromonal whiff of a secondary-school playground, will conclude with the planet’s two hardest-punching heavyweights putting their belts on the line in an epic reunification fight.

But even if Joshua creates history – as I expect him to do – by adding Wilder’s WBC belt to his WBA, IBF and WBO titles, thus becoming the first heavyweight to hold all four major belts at the same time, there is another fighter with the pedigree and x-factor to give him the toughest test of all: Tyson Fury.

Tottenham’s Dele Alli strikes twice to seal the points against Chelsea

Tottenham Hotspur had been waiting 28 long years for this moment. Not since Gary Lineker wrestled himself free of a scrum of bodies at the far post to nod a late Nayim cross down and beyond Dave Beasant had their travelling fans, on an exposed terrace that afternoon in February 1990, been able to revel in this arena at Chelsea’s expense, or bounce their way gleefully through the post-match crowing while the locals skulked away.

Spurs have since seen a title challenge wrecked, and far too many humiliations for comfort. Their team have been put to the sword almost as a matter of course, a succession of managers and lineups thrashed out of sight. In that context this must have felt exquisite, even before the extension of the gap from fifth to eight points – such a healthy advantage with seven games to play – had been taken into account. “I will celebrate the win like I celebrate any win,” said Mauricio Pochettino, whose half-hearted attempts to play down the achievement fooled no one. “But winning at Stamford Bridge again is a massive thing for our fans and for Tottenham.”

New Zealand v England: second Test, day four – as it happened

The New Zealand openers survived a new-ball interrogation before bad light curtailed play with the home side needing 342 more runs to win

The umpires have surrendered to darkness. We all do eventually. Play has been abandoned for the day with 24 overs lost, though eight of those can theoretically be made up tomorrow. The final day’s play will not start early because of concerns about the dew, so it’s likely those will be lost to bad light tomorrow evening. It doesn’t look great for England, who are facing a series defeat and a record 13th overseas Test without victory.

Thanks for your company today. Please do join Tom Davies for the first session of the final day, which begins at 10.30am local time and 11.30pm in England. Goodnight!

The umpires speak...

"This is unfortunate, the game is nicely poised. If we don't get back, we'll have 98 overs tomorrow, starting half-an-hour earlier [23:00 BST]." Umpire Marais Erasmus

'In a way, I'm lucky': Doddie Weir on MND, rugby and his crusade for a cure

In New York for fun and treatment, the Scottish rugby great discussed life with motor neurone disease – and what he’s doing to fight it

In a famous scene from Living with Lions, the seminal documentary about the 1997 victory in South Africa, Doddie Weir is told his tour is over.

“Ah well,” says the big lock, his eyes betraying a deeper pain than his grimace as the doctor flexes his knee, smashed by some Mpumalanga stormtrooper. “We’ve had a good old time of it, eh?”

Sandy Lyle’s Masters bunker shot still thrills 30 years on

The first success by a British golfer at Augusta triggered a period of European domination there and his victory is remembered for its dramatic circumstances

There will be only one Scot taking part in the 82nd Masters but the identity of that individual means there can still be a degree of tartan pride: it is precisely 30 years since Sandy Lyle triumphed in Georgia, earning a lifetime right to play in the year’s first major.

The first Masters success by a British golfer triggered a period of European domination at Augusta. The dramatic circumstances of the success – the elegant seven iron from the bunker and birdie putt on the 72nd hole – render his win a more meaningful part of history than what came thereafter.

The Generation Game review – priapic symbolism and a conveyor belt? Yes, it’s the return of a family favourite

This Easter Sunday resurrection of a BBC classic recaptures the original spirit of show – but has its time passed?

And so, on Easter Sunday, The Generation Game rose from the dead again, in accordance with the schedules … Sunday! The Generation Game was always on a Saturday, no? Brucie will be turning in his grave. Larry Grayson, too … shut that door. Jim Davidson … well, let’s not talk about Jim Davidson.

Mel’n’Sue are hosting this latest incarnation. That makes sense. Bring on hot cross puns and innuendo, in-your-end-oh. And the first contestants, who may be second cousins twice removed. “They were just cousins,” says Sue. “But we had them removed. Twice.”

Ni no Kuni II review – kings and subjects unite for a fair deal
A king recruits his subjects, and neighbouring rulers, to share in his quest for a fairer new world

Once the obvious decrees have been made – free sweets, everlasting school holidays! – most children, if asked to reign for a day, would surely wish for peace and plenty for their kingdom. So it is with Evan Pettiwhisker Tildrum, a prince made, in sudden and bloody circumstances, an exiled king who, together with a growing band of friends, supporters and assorted strays, must build an empire and an alluring constitution to draw subjects to his freshly birthed nation.

Rendered in the Studio Ghibli aesthetic – defined here by artist Yoshiyuki Momose and composer Joe Hisaishi, who both worked on the Japanese studio’s Oscar-winning Spirited Away – the newly released Ni no Kuni II’s non-threatening whimsy is stylish but childlike. And for the first few hours, while searching for a patch of unclaimed land on which to settle a capital, it’s a likable adventure. You bumble over hill and dale, slaying monsters, incrementally upgrading your swords and sandals, and sleeping off the effort at local inns.

Imagine Wanting Only This by Kristen Radtke review – an appetite for destruction
Kristen Radtke’s restless memoir of her search for abandoned places is like Planet of the Apes as told by Shelley

At the end of Planet of the Apes (accept no imitations: I mean the 1968 version), Charlton Heston, who plays an astronaut called Taylor, rides off into the distance. “What will he find out there?” wonders one ape. “His destiny,” replies another. In the next moment, we see the actor in shadow, on a bleak-looking shoreline. “Oh my God,” he says, recognition clouding his face. “I’m back. I’m home.” His voice cracks. He falls to his knees. The planet of the apes, he has realised, is Earth, destroyed in a nuclear war while he was off in space – and he is one of the last humans to walk its surface.

I thought of this scene more than once as I read Kristen Radtke’s graphic memoir Imagine Wanting Only This, a weird and restless book preoccupied with decaying and destroyed landscapes. We tend to imagine that when we gaze on ruins, we’re in search of the past. But the truth is we’re also contemplating the future. Why are we here, we ask ourselves, as we lift up our cameras. And what, if anything, will we leave behind? Radtke’s obsession with ruins has its roots in the loss of a dear uncle from congenital heart disease, a condition she may have inherited; the fragility of life is a daily lived experience for her.

Bard example: can Shakespeare translate to the small screen?

Television history is littered with sub-par adaptations, but with some big name numbers coming soon – including King Lear and Hamlet – the material is still too attractive to ignore

It’s generally agreed that Shakespeare, if he were alive today, would wish to write for TV. But what exactly? Drama commissioners might feel his stage work hadn’t shown enough interest in the police procedural, except for a few comic cops in much ado about nothing.

But seeing as 14 of his 37 plays have English or Scottish monarchs as their main characters – from the oft-performed King Lear and Macbeth to the rarely seen Cymbeline – perhaps the obvious modern commission for him would be The Crown. But even Shakespeare – a very free fictionaliser of English history – might be surprised at some of the factual liberties taken by Peter Morgan.

Searching for Stars on an Island in Maine by Alan Lightman review – at one with the universe

The physicist and novelist’s discursive essays on the mysteries of the physical world are full of wonder and insight

Alan Lightman has made a unique career finding imaginative ways to bridge the “two cultures” of science and humanities. A novelist and physicist, he was the first person to be awarded a joint professorship in literature and astrophysics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). His work in the latter discipline has resulted in notable contributions to the theory of astrophysical processes under extreme temperatures; he has helped to map the behaviour of such out-of-this-world concepts as “accretion discs” and “relativistic plasmas”.

He made his name as a writer of fiction, meanwhile, with Einstein’s Dreams in 1993 – a lyrical series of short sketches, each one an attempt at a different understanding of time, and all rooted in the freewheeling mind of Einstein as he grappled with relativity in Berne, Switzerland in 1905. That book drew comparisons with the playful philosophical fiction of Italo Calvino and Jorge Luis Borges, and became an international bestseller. Since then, Lightman has published 17 books, each of which dwell in different ways on life, the universe and everything.

What to do with your Easter leftovers

Bread and butter pudding made with hot cross buns or Easter eggs melted down to make crispy cakes are just two ways to use up surplus treats

With Easter over, our thoughts turn, somewhat more reliably than the weather, to summer – and, for some of us at least, the pressing need to shed some winter insulation. The task is not made any easier by chocolate bunnies breeding like ... well, rabbits. The only solution is to make a feast of the festive leftovers, then get back to the 5:2 diet or spin classes once consumed.

The Easter joint is likely to be your most pressing problem. Cold roast lamb freezes well (be sure to strip it from the bone first) but is also the traditional base for shepherd’s pie. Simmer slowly with any leftover veg and gravy or a good lamb or beef stock, season with Worcestershire sauce and tomato puree or ketchup, then top with buttery mash and bake in a hot oven until golden.

A wander near Ronda: Spain’s empty quarter

Andalucía’s first parque natural is pretty unknown, yet Sierra de Grazalema is a stunning wild place of peaks, gorges, hilltop villages and vultures

A goat farmer told me no one swims in the lake at Zahara de la Sierra because it’s full of fish with crocodile heads. Is that why I’m the only person in 128 sq km of cool water on a very hot day? I later learn that this manmade lake (embalse), the mountain ranges to the south of it, and the cliffs, gorges, flower meadows, forests and caves all around are simply, for the most part, empty. Spain has a surplus of staggeringly beautiful wild spaces, but this one – almost 54,000 hectares north-east of Cadiz, overflowing into the province of Málaga – became the country’s first Unesco biosphere reserve in 1977. And Sierra de Grazalema became Andalucía’s first parque natural in 1984.

I've inherited a house – should I sell it or repair it and rent it out?

I’m 26 and earn just over £20,000, so a buy-to-let mortgage would be a big undertaking

Q I have inherited my grandmother’s house (which an estate agent has valued at £160,000 at the most), while my brother also inherited another small property that she had been renting out before she died. She was blind during the last few years of her life and her friend took over all her financial affairs. Sadly he mismanaged these and a large amount of unpaid tax and other fees were due to be paid after her death. Luckily a friend stepped in and lent us the £43,000 needed to pay this off and allow us to inherit the properties. I therefore need to raise money to pay half of what we owe this friend, plus £10,0000 to £15,000 to bring the house up to a suitable condition to rent out or sell as it has been empty quite a while. I’ll also need several thousand pounds more to repair my mother’s home, which is in a bad state of repair. The question is whether this money should come through a mortgage or the sale of the property? Friends and family seem to have such differing views on the matter, which makes me very anxious.

The house is up in Perth in Scotland, but I currently live and work in London and don’t have plans to move back there anytime soon. I’m 26 and earn just over £20,000, so a mortgage would be a significant undertaking. However, as I understand it I could get a buy-to-let mortgage if I am receiving rental income of course. Would it be better to raise a mortgage and let it out via an agent (perhaps I should get a mortgage now since I will undoubtedly wish to get on the property ladder at some point) or should I sell and put the money in the bank where it might earn less, but could be a safer, hassle-free option?

How was your weekend running?

Read all about it, read all about it! Shocking news just in from the University of Running Studies!

This just in from the University of Running Studies: early experiment results suggest that chocolate egg-based fuelling strategies may not be entirely successful. Yes, I know! Shocking, right? Who would have thought an entirely chocolate-based nutrition plan would not be ideal? Next they’ll be trying to prove that cake isn’t the perfect carb-loading food. I know, I know. But these scientists, they have these crazy theories ...

The long weekend has seen plenty of races, though top marks to any runners at the Maidenhead 10 miler who managed to stay in their rhythm despite the Prime Minister attempting to steer them further right (sorry). For myself, the weekend consisted of a track session with my club, followed by a Sunday feeling rather sore. Having spent a month or so taking it reasonably easy post-marathon, my running muscles are protesting at being made to do anything beyond plod pace. That, and that alone, is clearly why this morning’s run commute at easy pace didn’t feel particularly easy. Absolutely nothing to do with approximately 421 Mini Eggs. Nope. Nothing at all.

How I rediscovered the joy of slow eating and slow living in Florence

After the monochrome tones of my life in London, I felt like I had landed in a Technicolor movie set, just as Iran had been in my childhood

It was the most unexpected sound and the last thing I had imagined I might hear in this bastion of western civilisation. Rising through the silence of the medieval room, the Muslim call to prayer rang out, instantly transporting me back to my childhood, to Iran. To days punctuated by the call that rose up over rooftops, drifted across the school playground, washed over us as we played and skipped and studied. It was so familiar and yet such a surprise that it tore clean through me, wrenching at my heart.

I was in a room in the Palazzo Vecchio, Florence’s town hall, attending a meditation session my neighbour had invited me to. I’d been in Florence for just one month, arriving with nothing but a suitcase, a book proposal and the address of a friend’s flat. For the first time in my adult life, I had no job, no salary and no flat of my own. Burnt out by my high-octane job and depressed, unanchored from friends and family, I felt like a piece of flotsam washed up in the Renaissance gutters.

The clean breathing craze proves that you can put a price on fresh air

Tech companies are finding innovative and lucrative ways to clean the air in our homes, while sales of purifying plants are blooming

First it was clean eating; now it’s clean breathing. Sales of air purifiers are soaring, with the global market expected to be worth £6.2bn by 2024.

The trend is in response to the rise in asthma and allergies linked to poor air quality inside buildings. Research says it can be up to five times more polluted than air outside, with chemicals from cleaning products, aerosols and perfume rivalling diesel fumes as causes of contamination.

You’ve decided to delete Facebook but what will you replace it with?
After the Cambridge Analytica data-breach row many users are looking to switch their social media accounts. What sites and apps could prove an option?

For too many people considering leaping aboard the #DeleteFacebook bandwagon, the answer is simple: switch your photo and video sharing to Instagram and your messaging to WhatsApp. But what many do not realise is that both of those apps are owned by Facebook – since September 2012 and October 2014 respectively.

It is a mark of the company’s dominance of the social media landscape – Facebook has 2.13 billion monthly active users, WhatsApp 1.5 billion and Instagram 800 million – that finding a single alternative is difficult.

Alarm as government rewrites UK 'torture guidance' in secret

Civil liberties groups fear guidance to prevent human rights abuses may be weakened

A British government guidance paper that is intended to prevent the country’s intelligence officers from becoming involved in human rights abuses is being rewritten in secret, much to the alarm of civil liberties groups.

Rights activists are deeply worried that the UK government may be tempted to water down the guidance at a time when the US president, Donald Trump, has said he hopes to restore waterboarding – “and a hell of a lot worse” – and has nominated Gina Haspel as the next head of the CIA. Haspel reportedly oversaw a secret CIA prison in Thailand, where a terrorism suspect was tortured.

Israel rejects UN and EU calls for inquiry into Gaza bloodshed

Defence minister says soldiers ‘did what had to be done’ after protests turned violent

Israel’s defence minister has rejected United Nations and European Union calls for an investigation into the killing of more than a dozen Palestinians by the military during demonstrations on the Gaza frontier.

Gaza’s coastal enclave has been shaken by the bloodiest episode in years after protests advertised as peaceful sit-ins turned violent, with Israeli troops firing rounds of live ammunition at crowds of stone-throwers.

South Korean K-pop stars perform for Kim Jong-un in Pyongyang

It was the first time a North Korean leader had attended a South Korean performance in the north’s capital, Pyongyang. Kim was seen clapping along to some of the songs during the two-hour concert on Sunday, and posed for photographs with the performers afterwards.

In a rare intervention in party politics for someone who had to quit the party whip when he became Speaker, Lord Martin said he was “appalled” by what was happening in Labour and that failure to tackle antisemitism could cost it the next election.

Teachers warn of growing poverty crisis in British schools

Schools plugging gaps left by social services budget cuts as poverty becomes more extreme

Extreme child poverty is worsening across the UK, with schools increasingly forced to fill in the gaps being left by councils and social services budget cuts, school leaders have said.

Headteachers from schools in deprived areas of England, Wales and Northern Ireland say they are having to provide basic services such as washing school uniforms for pupils from poor households, and are even paying for budget advice and counselling services for parents.

Sprinter Emily Diamond: 'My family have always been an amazing support'

Her mother was a formidable long jumper, her grandmother competed in the 1950 European Athletics Championships – and her grandfather was a sprinter. No wonder 400m runner Emily Diamond is tipped for success. Ahead of the Commonwealth Games, Rosie Mullender catches up with all three generations of track stars

The face of sport today is practically unrecognisable from that of 1950, when Valerie McGee – ne´e Webster – represented the UK in the long jump at the European Athletics Championships. And the differences feel all the more stark as her granddaughter Emily Diamond prepares to compete in the women’s 400m and 4x400m relay races at the Commonwealth Games on Australia’s Gold Coast.

Glitz and graffiti: the two sides of the Hong Kong art scene

As prestigious international galleries have moved into Hong Kong’s Central district, so young local talent has claimed the streets and former industrial spaces as its own

Hong Kong is a city of thrill-inducing contrasts. And nowhere is this characteristic so apparent as in the art world, where glossy international fairs and the Parisian and New York-style galleries of the Central district sit alongside 20-foot street artworks emblazoned on empty walls and stairwells around the city.

Hong Kong’s artists have watched their city evolve from bankers’ paradise to global cultural hub at breakneck speed. After decades out of the spotlight, the local art scene now rivals both New York’s and London’s – the only two cities on Earth with higher art revenues – and its wealth of auction houses, galleries and fairs such as Art Basel and Art Central have put it at the heart of the lucrative Asian market.

The unstoppable rise of veganism: how a fringe movement went mainstream

Health, climate change, animal welfare... what’s driving more people and brands to embrace a plant-based lifestyle? We investigate, and, below, four vegans explain their choice

Late on a Thursday afternoon in early March, just off Brick Lane in the heart of London’s nightlife hotspot Shoreditch, 23-year-old Louisa Davidson is taking calls and co-ordinating cables and scaffolds, as shocking pink Vegan Nights banners are hung around the expansive courtyards of the Truman Brewery. There is a chill in the air, quickly warmed by a buzzing atmosphere more like a music festival than an ethical food fair, as BBC Radio 1Xtra and House of Camden DJs play records, cocktails are poured and entrepreneurs sell zines and street wear alongside the vegan sushi, patisserie and “filthy vegan junk food”.

Davidson had been running weekend markets at the venue when she noticed a sharp increase in the number of vegan food businesses and vegan menus on offer. So last September, with her colleagues, she decided to put on a one-off vegan night market, with music, drinks and food. “On the day there were queues around the corner,” she says. “We were not prepared for it at all! There was so much interest that by Christmas we decided to make it a monthly thing. It’s all happened very quickly.” Inspired by its success, and the traders she was working with, Davidson switched from vegetarian to a vegan diet in January.

Damien Hirst hates sausages! How Instagram became art's new playground

Twisted selfies from Cindy Sherman, strange fruit from Wolfgang Tillmans, skull revelations from Damien Hirst … as artists muscle in on the app, what have we learned about them?

‘Got my blonde on,” writes Cindy Sherman in a recent Instagram post. In the photo, a woman with a blond wig and a computer-generated symphony of neck wrinkles, faces down the viewer. “Looks like some women I saw at Mar-a-Lago,” reads one comment. Good point: Sherman seems to have tapped into the Trump era’s gaudy glitz and glares. But there’s more to this. “Yeah and?” the surly tilt of her head seems to be saying, even if her eyes – poised between vulnerability and defiance like so many Sherman-created women – tell a different story.

It’s odd that it took Sherman so long to put her work on Instagram. For decades, she was doing Instagram before Instagram. From Untitled Film Stills (1977-80) onwards, her art has dealt with all the stuff that captivates and disgusts about the photo-sharing site: the narcissism, the perils and pleasures of self-exhibition, the cunningly filtered fantasies masquerading as the real thing.

Yanis Varoufakis: ‘Greece is a debtors’ prison’

The maverick former finance minister is in fighting mood as he launches his new party, MeRA25

Yanis Varoufakis is back. He, of course, would say he never went away, but in Greece’s hurly-burly world of politics his is a name prone to triggering toxic reaction.

Abroad, the shaven-headed economist is feted as the man who took on Europe’s establishment. At home, the former finance minister is seen, on both left and right, as a reckless incarnation of all that was wrong with Greece at the height of its struggle to remain in the eurozone. In Athens and Brussels, his confrontational style is still blamed for the price the debt-stricken country had to pay to be bailed out in the summer of 2015.

Keith Murdoch: disgraced All Black who 'went bush' in Australia dies at 74

The hulking prop, whose death aged 74 was confirmed by New Zealand Rugby, became the only All Black ever sent home from a tour in disgrace, after a 1972 bar brawl.

Starwatch: Mars and Saturn make a nice pairing

From places unpolluted by streetlights, the planets will be visible, grouped with the moon, in the hours before dawn

All this week, the planets Mars and Saturn will make a nice pairing in the pre-dawn sky. As seen from London, they will be low in the south; Mars is the brighter, slightly lower of the pair whereas Saturn is the yellow, dimmer one. Mars is 17 times smaller than Saturn but six times closer, which is why it appears brighter than its larger planetary cousin. Mars is currently approaching Earth and, by July, will be at its brightest for 15 years.

Madagascar's vanilla wars: prized spice drives death and deforestation

As the price of pods has soared so has violence – and forest defenders are increasingly risking their lives to protect precious wildlife habitat from being felled for profit

The vanilla thieves of Anjahana were so confident of their power to intimidate farmers they provided advance warning of raids. “We are coming tonight,” they would write in a note pushed under doors in this remote coastal village in Madagascar. “Prepare what we want.”

But they either undervalued their target commodity or overestimated the meekness of their victims. After one assault too many at the turn of the year, a crowd rounded up five alleged gangsters, dragged them into the village square and then set about the bloody task of mob justice.

Keep off our land, indigenous women tell Ecuador's president

The delegation of women dressed in traditional tunics and with intricately painted faces were granted a meeting with Moreno after nearly 100 of them camped in Quito’s central plaza in front of the Carondelet government palace for five days, earlier this month.

Dressed in excess: people put on all their clothes – in pictures

Canadian photographer Libby Oliver’s striking portrait series, Soft Shells, is a playful exploration of how people express themselves through clothes. It features individuals swathed in every item from their wardrobe, flashes of body parts only just visible. “Clothing is an immediate social cue,” Oliver says, “and one of the few things we have visual control over with ourselves.” The subjects range from Ava, four, to Oliver’s grandma Florence, who is 88.

Oliver started the project last summer and now has people itching to get involved. She hopes the series can develop internationally, to explore other cultures and catalogue “the varying masses of clothing and textures in the world”. She does, however, admit that the enthusiasm of her subjects has its limits. “I have to move quickly, because those piles of fabric are quite suffocating!”
