HESSLE'S plus two handicap Yorkshire County player, Paul Lockwood, took the runner-up slot in the 36-hole Yorkshire Boys Amateur Championship at Moortown.

Rounds of 72 and 68 for a total of 140 saw the 18-year-old come up five shots shy of the winner, the in-form Sam Young (Rotherham), who posted scores of 67 and 68 for a 135 total.

Young, currently enjoying a rich vein of good form, had six days earlier won the Sheffield Plate, a Yorkshire Order of Merit event.

Lockwood had mixed feelings about his second place.

He said he had played well tee to green, but an absence of luck on the greens, with a number of putts that horseshoed out, prevented him from mounting an effective challenge against Young.

Lockwood said: "After the first round 72 I had left myself with too much to do to catch Sam although I gave it my best shot."

Scores posted by other East Riding players included: Luke Robinson (Hornsea) 151 (76/ 75) 13th =, Michael Helyard (Hessle) 154 (78/76) 23rd =, Daniel Gray (Driffield) 156 (78/ 78) 30th =, Jonathon Pearce (Brid) 161 (83/78), Arachai Haorang (Hornsea) 161 (81/80), Sam Dillon (Driffield) 162 (81/ 81), Johnny Fisher-Ulliott (Hornsea) 163 (79/84).

DIANA, Princess of Wales was killed because she planned to expose senior members of the British arms trade involved with land mines, a leading lawyer claimed.

Michael Mansfield QC, who represented Mohamed al-Fayed in the inquest into the death of his son Dodi and the former royal, said Diana claimed she had an "exposure diary" in which she was going to unmask the people most closely involved with the British manufacturing of land mines.

He told the Hay Festival in Wales: "Everybody is aware that the British involvement in the arms trade, particularly land mines, is and was a huge vested interest.

"She was going to expose the people most closely involved. It seems to me that is not unrelated (to her death).

"I felt very strongly there was more to this case than a mere accident."

A CHELTENHAM man has been sentenced to 15 months in prison for intimidating witnesses in the case relating to the death of Martin Ridler.

Daniel Croft, 26, of the High Street, will serve half of his sentence in custody and half on license after pleading guilty to the charge.

Earlier this month, Shane Capseed, 23, from Gloucester, was given a life sentence, with a minimum term of 16 years, for the murder of Mr Ridler.

CORONA - Authorities say a multi-vehicle accident caused a gasoline tanker to overturn and burn on a Southern California freeway.

The crash closed all lanes of Highway 91 and traffic backed up for miles. There are no reports of any major injuries.

The westbound lanes reopened by early evening, but the eastbound side remained closed.

The California Highway Patrol says the tanker, which was hauling a fuel trailer, collided with a car and crashed around 10:30 a.m. Friday on the freeway's eastbound lanes, about 50 miles east of Los Angeles.

CHP dispatcher Jon Twenty says about six cars were involved in the wreck and some of them were also burned.

Parts of the 71 freeway were also closed.

Through LEAF 2010-1, on behalf of an affiliate that it manages, LEAF securitized approximately $90 million of leases, term funded by the issuance of Contract Backed Notes.

Crit DeMent, Chairman and CEO of LEAF Financial, said, "We are very pleased to have completed these securitizations and to finance these assets with long term, match funding rather than through short term facilities.
