    Listen to Chopper’s Politics, The Telegraph’s weekly political podcast featuring interviews with top politicians and commentators, hosted by Christopher Hope Was the last general election the start of an enduring rewiring of British politics? To answer that, look first to Hartlepool, where voters will be deciding their next MP on Thursday. It’s a seat never before held by the Tories, and it’ll provide the first hint of whether the fall of the Red Wall in 2019 was merely a temporary, Brexit-driven hiccup for Labour. So The Telegraph’s chief political correspondent, Christopher Hope jumps on a train to meet co-chair of the Conservative party Amanda Milling, to find out why she believes the opposition has taken the area for granted, whether a candidate from Yorkshire is truly the best person to take the seat, and why she’s confident the Downing Street refurbishment row hasn’t stretched beyond “the Westminster bubble”.

I look back over the past few years and look at pictures of when I first started kissing Blake, and I look the best I’ve ever looked in my life in those photos," Stefani told the news outlet.

    It may seem as though the best way to ensure your food lasts longer is to throw it all into the fridge - but experts have warned coffee should be firmly kept in a cupboard. Coffee, whether ground or whole beans, should never be stored in the fridge as doing so can ruin the flavour. The reason is that coffee naturally functions as a deodoriser - so if it's stored along with other groceries that give off an odour, such as fish, meat and cheese, it will easily absorb these smells. Instead, British experts have recommended it is stored in an airtight container in a cupboard to prevent it from going stale, according to The Telegraph.

    BEIJING (Reuters) - In the past year the United Kingdom expelled three Chinese spies who were in the country on journalism visas, according to a report by The Telegraph newspaper on Thursday. The report, which has not been independently verified by Reuters and cites a UK government source, says that three intelligence officers for China's Ministry of State Security purported to work for three different Chinese media agencies. "Their true identities were uncovered by MI5 and they have since been forced to return to China," said the report, referring to the UK's domestic security services. Also on Thursday, Britain's media regulator revoked a Chinese TV licence after it concluded that the Chinese Communist Party had ultimate editorial responsibility for the channel.

    A Welsh dentist was secretly stalked for four years by a disgruntled patient who carried a “murder kit” — including a ski mask, knife, hammer and even a crossbow, according to prosecutors. Thomas Baddeley, 42, took meticulous notes as he counted down to “the event” — which officials believe was a plan to kill his target, orthodontist Dr. Ian Hutchinson, according to the Telegraph. He was busted after an alarmed neighbor in Gwent saw him wearing a balaclava while sitting in one of more than 30 cars he had bought to remain incognito during the sinister surveillance, Cardiff Crown Court heard Friday as Baddeley was sentenced to 16 months’ prison. Officers then found a crossbow, black ski mask, kitchen knife, torch, gloves, lighters, hammer, dust sheets, bleach and wipes hidden in his car, the court heard, according to the UK paper. “It is perhaps not hyperbole to call that a murder kit,” prosecutor Nigel Fryer told the court, according to The Telegraph. Baddeley’s notes included details about local CCTV cameras, how not to leave fingerprints and what to tell...
