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.

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.

Security fears raised as footage shows Parliament gates unmanned and open after terror attack

Security fears have been raised after it emerged that the gate of Parliament were left unmanned and open in the immediate wake of Wednesday’s terror attack. The footage, captured by The Times1, shows the aftermath of the assault on New Palace Yard in which PC Keith Palmer2 was stabbed to death. As armed officers swarm the forecourt, having shot dead terrorist Khalid Masood3, the imposing iron gate that allows vehicles to enter can be seen wide open.

No police officers are visible guarding the entry point, known as Carriage Gates, fuelling concern the attack might have been worse had Masood been followed by accomplices. Pedestrians are shown walking past and at one stage a courier on a moped appears to enter unchallenged. Yards away, separate footage showed Theresa May being rushed from the building and into a waiting car.

Although the gate was open for a matter of minutes, critics will use the brief security lapse to rebuke claims on Friday by Scotland Yard’s anti-terror chief that current arrangements were “proportionate”. Mark Rowley said that procedures for guarding Parliament had been designed so they were not “overly intrusive”.

“Our current arrangements have been developed with Parliament over many years and are designed to provide access to the seat of our government balanced with security that is proportionate but not overly intrusive,” he said. Parliament’s main entrance has two sets of large metal gates allowing vehicles to go in and out of the estate and they have traditionally been left open during the day.

A pair of smaller, makeshift gates was introduced more recently with two police officers at each to check passes and allow cyclists, cars and delivery drivers to come and go. Just inside the entrance gate, armed police are usually present and an unarmed officer sits in a booth by the exit. Electronic ramps are depressed and barriers lifted further into the courtyard after passes are checked using handheld machines which flash up with a picture of the passholder.

More police, some armed, are usually present after the final checkpoint. Wednesday s murderous rampage at Westminster left five people dead, including the attacker . Many more were injured.
