Could this be the world's most expensive pasty?

Chef Richard Shaw's rather pricy pasty

A chef from Hampshire has created one of the world's most expensive cornish pasties - costing a mouth-watering £230.

Richard Shaw from Southwick said he hopes his VIP - very important pasty - will win at the '2015 World Pasty Championships' at the Eden Project in Cornwall this weekend.

His recipe contains Wagyu beef from Japan, black pepper from India and potatoes from the United States of America.

Philippe Coutinho's exceptional strike amid a series of controversial decisions from referee Kevin Friend helped Liverpool overcome Southampton 2-0 in what could prove a crucial result in the chase for a Champions League place.

There was no lack of vim and vigour on display in miserable conditions at St Mary's, where Brendan Rodgers' side moved within two points of the top four as the season enters the home straight.

Lost German cat gets ready to go home

He's just 5 years old and escaped from a van at a motorway service station in Kent. Then, for five weeks, Kosey hid in the bushes and amongst the cars.

But now Kosey - who's a cat, by the way - is to be reunited with his German owner after a schoolgirl managed to coax him out and take him to the vet.

David Johns reports, speaking to Kosey's owner Ina Pautz (via the Internet), Courtney Weeks who caught the cat, and cattery owner Julia Baxi.

A cat who escaped from her German owners when she stopped at services in Maidstone has been found after five weeks on the run.

After living in Leeds for six years, Ina Pautz was driving back to her native Germany and stopped briefly at Maidstone services.

But her cat Kosey, escaped from the car and would not return.

Ina was forced to continue her journey home and later appealed on Facebook for help finding her pet.

The cat was discovered by 16-year-old Courtney Weeks, 16, when they stopped off at the services with her mum.

A vet scanned its chip and tracked down Kosey's owner in Germany.

Kosey is now in a cattery in Wateringbury waiting for his owner to collect him.
