Who is Red Helmut?

Another caption clanger on Monday 30 April. This time with Speedway on page 41.

Presumably, Lasse Bjerre is known as "red helmut".

(Thanks to Bobby George for spotting this typo.)

Question: When does 4 = 44?

Answer: When the Mercury write the captions.

Monday 30 April 2012, page 45.

In a photograph accompanying the report on Leicester City's win at Leeds United on Saturday, " Ben Marshall gets away from Alex Bruce " . However, the picture shows Leeds United's Ross McCormack who wears No.44. Bruce is No.4.
Near enough for the Mercury!
