No one has more reason to fear the threat posed by the Russian state to this country than Charlie Rowley.

He was the innocent Englishman who was poisoned in the nerve agent attack in Salisbury that left his girlfriend, Dawn Sturgess, dead.

Charlie has no illusions about the brutal times that President Putin’s evil regime will come – even on British soil.

But today he speaks out against those who hesitate to allow Ukrainians to flee into our country because of security concerns.

But he rightly points out that Britain cannot turn a blind eye to refugees fleeing Russian bombs.

If he can find it in his heart to welcome them, so can we.

Football legend Brendon Ormsby will never be forgotten by Leeds United fans when he scored one of their most memorable goals.

But the increased cost means it’s either that, or a lower standard. And we know you deserve the best.

As our journalists risk their lives in Ukraine and fight injustice at home, we thank you all – for giving us a voice to those who have not.
