Outside Edge: News Junkie - Between the lines in last week's media

Gasps of surprise at Carlisle Crown Court, said the city's News and Star, as charity worker and churchgoer Rachel Waugh was given a five-year sentence. She was getaway driver for her son and another man who slashed the arm of their victim. Waugh works for the Living Well Trust, which combats anti-social behaviour on the Raffles estate.

At the great event in Windsor, people from royal charities were in a pen in the courtyard, where Charles and Camilla could greet them. The only charity people among the guests, according to The Sunday Times, were Martina Milburn of the Prince's Trust and Sir Tom Shebbeare, Charles's charity guru. The rest seemed to be comedians and garden designers.

Meanwhile, the Red Cross has been roped into plans to get Prince Harry under control: the same newspaper said he's to spend part of next month with the aid charity in Lesotho before being handed over to Sandhurst for instruction in what uniforms not to wear.

As Tesco announced record profits of more than £2bn, ActionAid put in a word for the women working on South African fruit farms that supply its shops. Metro reported the charity as saying workers get £32.50 a fortnight and are exposed to pesticides. In The Independent, Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin protested about US growers dumping subsidised rice in developing countries - part of an Oxfam campaign.
