    Hanky panky?

    Former world darts champion Ted Hankey has been jailed for two years for a sexual assault caught on camera. Hankey, 54, from Berry Hill, Stoke-on-Trent, pinned down the young woman and, with an "air of entitlement", sexually assaulted her, Chester Crown Court heard. He pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to the attack on 10 September in Crewe. The darts player, nicknamed The Count, was the BDO world champion in 2000 and 2009. The court was previously told the victim was aged between 16 and 18. Hankey, a father-of-three, who had shown "more self-pity than remorse", dabbed away tears with a tissue as he was sentenced.

    The Farthing Specialist.

    Shame they got chucked out they seem in demand now. I would hazard a guess that he got out one every three months or so , annoyingly they are not dated spring- summer -autumn- winter and the year would have been a great way to start off every list , though you can work out aprox when they were produced by little clues in the text , I had number 47 which seemed to date 1977 spring I would guess with the jubilee references in it
