News is sketchy but word is there's two / three more cases of coronavirus on Kef, two people being treated at Argostoli hospital and another isolating at home. Without more info it difficult to tell whether these are two/three new cases or EODY playing catch-up with locally released information.

Women hit by state pension age rise lose Court of Appeal case
'A lot of women hit by the pension changes don't have partners, are living alone and struggling to eat and heat and pay rent. Everything is on a shoestring,' says campaigner

Women hit by the state pension age rise have lost their Court of Appeal case against the government.

Almost 4 million women were impacted by the government increasing the state pension age from 60 to 66 for women born after March 1950.

BackTo60, a campaign group calling for women to be reimbursed for pension payments they have missed due to the controversial changes, lost its landmark High Court battle against the government — but appealed the ruling at the end of July.

Julie Delve and Karen Glynn, two women hit by the rise who took the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to court back in 2019, brought the Court of Appeal challenge but have now lost their case.

A total of 17 firefighters were sent to tackle a blaze in the area of Kokolata on the Ionian island of Cephalonia, aided by two water-dropping aircraft.

Bush fire in Divarata, up near Myrtos, earlier today, fanned by the winds.

Apparently the 'road' down to Koroni was a privately owned footpath which expanded into a track. The owner wants to keep it that way, seems the local community want it upgraded into a road. Could be a long legal battle ahead, if money doesn't do the talking.
