Wanted: Female, likes Antigua

READERS of this page will remember that lucky Clifford Chance associate Lukas Hirst recently won a City A.M. prize draw, and was rewarded with a luxury holiday for two at the beautiful Sandals hotel in Antigua.

There is just one problem: our lovely lawyer is single – and the resort, recently voted the “world’s most romantic” is aimed at couples in love.

Not missing an opportunity to play Cupid, any ladies who wish to meet an Aussie former rower, not to mention fancy the possibility of escaping the grey British winter for more exotic climes, should mark their love notes FAO The Capitalist.

They say the Square Mile is one of the safest places in the country – and for one woman who was having a heart attack while driving past the City’s Mansion House yesterday, that proved correct. On her way to work, The Capitalist spotted a crowd gathered on the doorstep of the Lord Mayor’s residence. Luckily the quick-thinking John Davies, Keeper of Walbrook Hall, had run outside to the rescue – defibrillator in hand – and carried out resuscitation. Davies modestly told colleagues afterwards that he did what anyone else would have done. Lucky that the Mansion House is so well-equipped.
