SEVEN STORIES FROM
1Oooh, I say! The National Trust has, ahem, ‘sexed up’ its image by putting out a new audio guide to Soho’s red-light district. The Soho Stories guide can be downloaded for free on to mobile smart phones, and provides commentary on some of the area’s more ribald goings-on. The guide has been well-reviewed so far, but beware – it does contain X-rated language and some scenes of a sexual nature.
2A man who tripped over in the street after withdrawing £1,000 cash from the bank thought it all lost to the wind – or greedy passers by. But instead he was astounded when people rushed after the notes… and returned them to him. Barry Eastwood, 54, was handed back all but £20 of the money – withdrawn to pay a bill. ‘It has given me a sense that there is still some decency in this world,’ he said.
3When was the last time you used a pen and paper? For the average adult, six weeks ago, new research shows. A third of those questioned in the study by Docmail said they hadn’t written anything

‘The average man will make £1m by the time he’s 50’
‘properly’ in sixth months and half said their handwriting ability had declined.
4Hockey is enjoying resurging popularity owing to its unofficial promotion by the Duchess of Cambridge. Figures from Sport England show a 25% increase in participation in the last six months. Kate captained her school team and visited the Great Britain team in March.
5Not everyone is piling on the pounds – professional women are getting slimmer, claim figures from the National Obesity Observatory. Those with careers in law, business or medicine have lost weight over the past 15 years. While the proportion of obese male professionals rose from 15% to 20% between 1997 and 2008, the percentage of obese female professionals fell from 15% to 14%. The trend is attributed to women feeling judged on appearance in the workplace.
6Forget the lottery – the average man will make £1m by the time he turns 50, retirement experts say, but a woman would have to work till 72 to reach that milestone. The calculations were based on people starting work at 18 and earning an average wage, peaking at £40k for men and £22k for women. Although the fortune would be minus £137,101 tax and £84,129 national insurance contributions.
7Nearly half of all ill health suffered by people of working age has a psychological basis, a new report claims – warning that millions of pounds is being wasted by not dealing with that root cause. Only a quarter of those with mental illness get the help they need, the team of health and finance experts say – a ‘scandalous’ neglect of the six million sufferers.
