Hurrah! The story that has captured the world's imagination has concluded successfully. The vast container ship that has blocked the Suez Canal for nearly a week has been freed by salvage crews. Tugboats honked their horns in celebration as the 400m-long (1,300ft) Ever Given was dislodged with the help of dredgers and tug boats. Hundreds of ships are waiting to pass through the canal which links the Mediterranean to the Red Sea via Egypt. This traffic jam has highlighted just how important this 120-mile-long canal is to world trade. I recall going through it myself when I was six as my mother and two brothers sailed to Singapore to join my father serving on HMS Bulwark. A day of constituency correspondence in the main, with a private chat with Cllr Toni Ferrari about funding. Regrettably, Dorset Council has been placed in the lowest category for the new Levelling-Up-Fund due to the fact we have moved to unitary status. Very frustrating and we are doing all we can to put that right, if possible. Meanwhile, the PM was questioning how the UK would cope with another pandemic. Mr Johnson said cases were still rising in Europe and people "must proceed with caution" as lock-down eases. The PM was speaking on the day stay-at-home rule came to an end in England, allowing groups to meet outdoors. He warned more deaths, infections and hospitalisations were inevitable. Allegations of sexual abuse made by school pupils on a website are "shocking and abhorrent", Education Secretary Gavin Williamson has said. No school should be a place "where young people feel unsafe", or where abuse can take place, he added. Mr Williamson pledged to take "appropriate action" and urged victims to tell someone they trust. The website Everyone's Invited has recorded 8,000 testimonies of sexual abuse from pupils. Education from day one is the key to this issue. We need to remind the male species from a young age that they are gentlemen first and foremost.
