We can't help but share another delight from Andy Singleton's project with Pottermore. Our favourite and rather heoric creature, known to some as 'Witherwings' but most as 'Buckbeak'. A charming and passionate hippogriff who lived with Rubeus Hagrid in the School grounds and who was a loyal in defending Harry in battle mutliple times. Andy has created a whole array of paper crafted 3D models if you're as nerdy as we are about the wizzarding world.

We implore you to explore them in detail over at the Pottermore website, have a lemon sherbet and find out your patronus whilst you're at it. That sounds like something Dumbeldore might say.

We are a country of many cultures, we have different opinions about the European Union but do not let this give way to any sort of extremist reaction. Take head, read this and let's unite against any racism or prejudice!

Sir Peter Blake has designed possibly the most delicious looking car for Bentley. The punchy colours, the stitched and signed leather seats- it's just all so sublime. This one-of-a-kind Bentley Continental GT V8 S Convertible will be auctioned for charity by Bonhams at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on June 24. Bentley commissioned Sir Peter to deliver the world’s first pop art Bentley, drawing on inspiration from his celebrated career at the forefront of the famous British pop art movement. We're currently wondering when our studio car is going to arrive...imagine taking this guy out for a spin,
