The so­ci­ety rais­ing money this week through The Health Lot­tery is HealthSuc­cess, tack­ling health in­equal­i­ties in Nor­folk and next week it is HealthGift, tack­ling health in­equal­i­ties in Cen­tral Scot­land.

DUE TO PRESS START TIMES AT OUR NEW PRESSES WE CAN ONLY CARRY THE NA­TIONAL LOT­TERY RE­SULTS IN OUR LATER EDI­TIONS AC­TRESS Eu­nice Gayson – the first Bond girl – has died aged 90.

She played Sylvia Trench along­side Sean Con­nery in the films Dr No and From Rus­sia With Love.

Dur­ing the film­ing of Dr No, Gayson took Con­nery for a drink to help calm his nerves so he could de­liver 007’s most fa­mous catch­phrase – giv­ing his name as “Bond, James Bond”– for the first time.

The step­son and daugh­ter of orig­i­nal Bond pro­ducer Al­bert R Broc­coli, Michael G Wil­son and Bar­bara Broc­coli, paid trib­ute to Gayson in a post on the of­fi­cial James Bond Twit­ter ac­count.

It read: “We are so sad to learn that Eu­nice Gayson, our very first ‘Bond girl’, has passed away.

“Our sin­cere thoughts are with her fam­ily.”
