Death at the Inn

A GRIM anniversary today for one South Yorkshire pub...

It is 150 years since the Scottish nobleman Alexander, Earl of Eglington, killed a companion over a game of dice at the Angel Inn, in Misson, Doncaster.

The Earl stabbed Thomas Maddox with a sword after the session turned nasty. As you do.

He was charged with murder but, with all his money and connections, was found not guilty due to ample provocation and the case was dismissed.

The incident is reported in Kevin Turton's book A Grim Almanac Of South Yorkshire.

Get energised

TO most amateur sportsmen an energy snack means having a Mars bar and a mouthful of Lucozade.

But a cooking demo will show how to make proper energy bars next month.

Takes place at Sheffield's Weston Park as part of the Sports Lab exhibition on February 16, 6 - 8pm.
