Any one heading into the All England Club will have their tea flask confiscated. It comes in response to the Boston bombings last year when a pressure cooker was used as a weapon. Speaking to The Telegraph, Caroline Fiennes, a philanthropy adviser said:

"I have always thought it rather delightful that one can take in food and drink. I’ve always taken a flask of tea but this year you can’t take them in, so I had to check mine in the left luggage before security — tea and all. Disaster."

"I met the owner and she was happy I'd picked it up. "The dog was pretty strong, I don't think it really wanted me to grab it by the collar and put it in the car but thankfully the dog was fine and it's all good."

Andy Murray told BBC Radio Five Live:

"I was driving to practice and there was a dog running along the road. I parked the car and got out and tried to stop the traffic because the dog was running towards the oncoming traffic. I ran into the road, stopped the traffic and I managed to get the dog onto the back seat of my car.

"Then I drove to the place where all of the people walk their dogs, which is literally just round the corner. I called the number on the tag and amazingly my two dogs walk with that dog quite a lot. I met the owner and she was happy I'd picked it up.

"The dog was pretty strong, I don't think it really wanted me to grab it by the collar and put it in the car but thankfully the dog was fine and it's all good."
