Bake Off’s Prue Leith given security guard after replacing Mary Berry

Prue Leith1 has been given a protection officer after replacing Mary Berry2 on The Great British Bake Off3.

The TV cook, 77, said she had refused protection, but that Channel 44 and production company Love Productions insisted over fears she would receive threats. Speaking to The Sun she said: On the day that they announced who the line-up was, they wanted to send a close protection officer.

My husband and a bunch of friends were going out to dinner to a really nice restaurant in London. Replaced: Mary Berry with former presenters Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc (BBC/Love Productions/Mark Bourdi)

I said, Don t be ridiculous, we absolutely do not need a copper standing there looking.

But they said, No, no, no, we really must just to be on the safe side.

What did they think is going to happen ? I m not likely to be trolled . This is a nice family show.

Despite her protestations, Leith said she returned home to find a security guard outside her house, and later learned that her agent had also been given protection. Paul Hollywood talks about new Bake Off line-up on Loose Women

She continued: When I got home that night at 11 at night, there s a chap in a van, a security guard.

They sent somebody down to the country to look after me.

And they sent someone to look after my agent . I mean, who do they think I am ?

Do they think I m Prince Philip or something?

I was really amazed that they really look after you. Leith replaced Berry on the popular baking show after it moved from the BBC5 to rival broadcaster, Channel 4, and will judge the contestants alongside Paul Hollywood6. Presenters Sue Perkins7 and Mel Giedroyc8 also turned down the chance to continue on Channel 4 and were later replaced by Sandi Toksvig and Noel Fielding9.

The Great British Bake Off airs later this year.

London terror attack: Windsor Castle security tightened ahead of Changing of the Guards ceremony

Security has been enhanced around Windsor Castle1 ahead of the Changing The Guard ceremony following the Westminster terror attack2. Barriers were put in place around the royal residence in Berkshire on Monday evening to support existing road closures, Thames Valley Police3 said. The force said the changes were proportionate and necessary but that there was no specific threat to Windsor ahead of the next Changing The Guard on Wednesday.

Assistant Chief Constable Dave Hardcastle said: While there is no intelligence to indicate a specific threat to Windsor, recent events in Westminster clearly highlight the need for extra security measures to be introduced.

The force believes that it is proportionate and necessary to put in place extra security measures to further protect and support the public and the guard change.

This is consistent with security deployments in London4.

Preventative measures such as these have been put in place across the UK over the past 10 years at various events.

The national threat level remains severe, which it has been since 2014, and I would urge the public to be alert to the threat of terror attacks but not alarmed, and to remain vigilant. The colourful military spectacle takes place at Windsor Castle on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in March and every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday in April, weather permitting. Tourists flock to see soldiers in their red tunics and bearskins processing to and from the historic building to the sound of a military band.

The new barriers will only be used to secure the route of the procession during the event and will remain open at other times.

Security guard graduates from school he has watched over for nearly 20 years

A security guard who has spent nearly two decades keeping watch over students at a college in the Philippines1 was able to join their ranks today as a scholar celebrating his own graduation. Erwin Macua spent four years juggling his job as a guard at St Theresa s College in Cebu City with studying and being a father of three children. And today, the 38-year-old s efforts were rewarded, as he graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Elementary Education degree.

Age is not a hindrance, poverty is not a hindrance, the scholar told ABS-CBN news.

Just pursue your dream with the formula: hard work plus determination plus prayer and you will reach your aspirations in life.

Despite working a long overnight shift from 7pm to 7am, Mr Macua maintained a full course load, attending classes from 7:30am to 4pm, Cebu Daily News reports. The security guard s name has also been on the college s Dean s list since his first year as a student in 2013. Mr Macua told ABS-CBN it had always been his dream to complete his studies and that he wanted to be a teacher because of his love of working with children.

Education is a good course to deal with students and you can really change their lives, he told the broadcaster.

The father used his own savings to fund his first year in college, but he says he was sponsored by an anonymous donor for the remainder of his school years.

Mr Macua has said he plans to continue his work watching over students at St Theresa s as he prepares for exams to earn a teaching licence.
