The cast of the hit BBC One drama Poldark have been re-created as woollen knitted figures that are selling all over the world, the woman behind the dolls has said.

The characters are the creation of Poldark superfan and knitting addict Angela Blay, 50, who has sold about 70.

Programme-maker Mammoth Screen said it was very pleased the cast had “inspired such creativeness”.

Ms Blay, from Suffolk, said what started as a hobby was now her day job.

The music teacher first made a woollen Ross Poldark – played by Aidan Turner – when the first series aired in March 2015, peaking with 9.4 million viewers.

Ms Blay has since been inundated with requests on social media for the dolls, selling them across the UK and as far away as the US, Canada, Australia and Tasmania.

Crooked cash courier caught with £100k

A criminal cash courier from Coventry has been handed a suspended prison sentence for money laundering, after he was caught in a car with more than £100,000 in used bank notes.

Enwar Fettah, 50, was approached by investigators from HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) as he sat in a Mercedes 4×4 in a deserted area of an industrial estate in Edmonton, north London, at 9.30pm on 22 November 2016.

During a search of the vehicle, HMRC officers found £100,970 inside two brand new laptop bags that still had price tags attached. Fettah told officers he had been offered £120 to drop the money off by a man he didn’t know.

Paul Fisher, Assistant Director, Fraud Investigation Service, HMRC, said:

“Fettah was effectively working as a criminal courier. He says he was paid £120, but is now paying a much higher price. People involved in money laundering help to fund the illegal activities of organised crime gangs.

“We will not hesitate to seize proceeds of crime and investigate anyone involved. I would urge anyone with information about this type of crime to report it to HMRC online, or call our Fraud Hotline on 0800 788 887.”

Talks to avert South Western Railway strike collapse

Strike notice

A fourth 24-hour strike over the role of guards on South Western Railway (SWR) is set to go ahead on Saturday after talks broke down.

The company said talks with the Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) failed to reach a resolution.

A SWR statement said the union had failed to accept the same terms agreed on another franchise.

However the RMT said that “did not represent” what it had been told and it remained available for further talks.

Plans for a second air link to the Isles of Scilly have been approved by Cornwall Council.

The new heliport, at a site in Eastern Green, will bring back helicopter services between Penzance and the Isles of Scilly.

The £2m project by RDS will fly to both Tresco and St Mary’s using 15-seater helicopters.

The application went before Cornwall Council’s strategic planning committee where it was given unanimous approval.

The service, which will be similar to the one that closed in 2012, will run seven days a week and will begin in 2019 with a maximum of 17 return flights per day during the summer peak season.
