Nick Cave delivers a show ‘none there will quickly forget’ at the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham – review, setlist, your tweets

Every Nick Cave tour is different. The last time he played Nottingham, less than two years ago, he took his most delicate record – the fragile, grief-stricken Skeleton Tree, released after the death of his 15-year-old son Arthur – into the cavernous Motorpoint Arena. From what could have been the strangest mismatch of album and venue imaginable, he and unstoppable backing band the Bad Seeds produced a cathartic masterpiece. At the time I wrote: “It was one of the greatest arena shows I've ever seen. The hysteria of the encores will stay with me forever.” I stand by every word.
This show was the complete opposite, not just because of the smaller venue. Inspired by The Red Hand Files – a website on which fans ask him questions – this was one man and his piano, playing his songs and answering any question anyone wanted to ask. “I am acting on an intuition that something of value can be gained from an open and honest dialogue with my audience,” he said on a card handed out in the foy..

A third of us have taken other people’s kids in our car without using a child seat

One third of parents have broken the law by transporting someone else’s son or daughter without a child seat, it has emerged.
A study of 1,000 UK parents, of children aged 12 or under, revealed an alarming proportion of UK children who could have found themselves at risk of death or serious injury.
One in 10 parents have had four or more children sat across one row of seats in the car while one in five let their child sit on a cushion rather than a booster seat.
And 33 per cent said they had transported someone else's child without a child seat.
The survey was carried out by OnePoll for the car manufacturer SEAT to highlight the risks posed by youngsters not being strapped in correctly.
Under the current law, children aged up to 12 years old or 135cm tall are, with a few exceptions, legally obliged to use a child seat when travelling in a car. Drivers currently face a fine of up to £500 and three penalty points for using the wrong restraint.
The incorrect use – or lack of us..

The rare Second World War aircraft is one of only two of its kind that are still airworthy after most were scrapped after the war.

The historic plane will take to the skies in Ilkeston above the the town's Heritage and Classic Vehicle Show.
Lancaster bombers were used during the Second World War. The show will take place on Sunday, August 11 between 10am and 4pm, Derbyshire Live reports.
