Well done getting the pic upladed. It can be very difficult to start with  :)

I'd say that she was 25-32 -ish

Thanks sarah ...without a mouse or double click either . i shared it from a FB pic !

I can change my avatar too to another maisie pic but really need a big one

Boiler repair man this am also a history buff though she looks like ME from nose down

+ Gadget

News reports says younger but to be ours she has to be 6 years older than her lover
I think she relented _ gave her real name or was identified but kept womens perogative to lie about her age ...isnt there an Oscar Wilde quote

we all want to look older when teens +  5years younger after 25   men included ..?

Before reading your other thread, I looked at this one and thought that the woman was in her early 30s - certainly not 20/21!

Thanks spiderminkey that's becoming a condensed next we have to see if any family resemblance . tomorrow s assignment is to get photos from gallery or fb on this thread

I won't attempt Sarah's clear instructions

Alternative method

1 .Go  to costa's
2.request help from nearest person using a smart phone or tablet
3.pat attention learn but let them take control
4 drink soya decaf latte
5 thank random helpful stranger give them a sticker
6Connect

  works wonders

Is it just Leicester people or does   charm . Helplessness L aughter and esp work world wide

My opinion;

Lady on left looks to have the same shape nose as lady in newspaper pic

Girl on right may have same hair parting (going by shape of hairline of lady from newspaper pic)

None seem to have same hair (lady in newspaper's hair looks curly)

No expert None have same eyes or hair to my mind nor shape of face

Could try photocopy or trace one or other at same scale as other onto overhead projection transparency and then overlay and look for differences -- primitive, tricky but similar to old police technique
Someone will pipe up and tell you newer face recognition technology hopefully
