Six had died and another 31 were missing, he said. Other recreational vessels rushed to the distressed boat, which was reportedly loaded to capacity as holidaymakers took advantage of a long weekend. Two residents of Guatapé told Blu Radio that the same boat had sunk about three months ago when it was tied at the dock. “They fixed it and it kept working normally,” one of the residents told the radio network. Guatapé is a popular holiday spot for Colombian and foreign tourists attracted by water sports on the reservoir and rock climbing on the El Peñol rock face.

Warren Gatland wants end to All Blacks' ‘dangerous' harassment of Conor Murray Read moreNo wonder Warren Gatland was keen to move the narrative on after his squad had transferred from Auckland down to the nation’s capital. The 2017 tour itinerary was clearly designed by a grasshopper with a short attention span – relocation, relocation, relocation should be the title of the tour DVD – but that suits the Lions this week. That usually means just one thing: the Lions will come out swinging, desperate to make amends for their Eden Park frustrations. “I’d be doing everything I could physically do the following week to make sure I fixed that area of the game. They certainly did that – so much so that no one within the growing Lions fan base could have any complaints.

These are testing times for the New York Mets, with the team well off the pace in the National League East, star players injured and veteran players unsettled. And now Tim Tebow is creeping his way towards the major leagues. The Heisman Trophy winner and former NFL star is still a long way from an MLB appearance but he has been promoted from the Low A Columbia Fireflies to the Advanced A St Lucie Mets. Anthony DiComo (@AnthonyDiComo) Tebow was batting just .222 at Class A Columbia, but Sandy Alderson says the Mets were impressed by his improving exit velocity, metrics. pic.twitter.com/hCZNayrGFx“It’s not like he’s tearing up the league, but at the same time all of the indications are positive in terms of various things we look at – chase rates and exit velocity,” Alderson told ESPN.

Fewer than 90 email accounts with weak passwords are believed to have been hacked in ‘sustained’ attackThe Russian government is suspected of being behind a cyber-attack on parliament that breached dozens of email accounts belonging to MPs and peers. Fewer than 90 email accounts belonging to parliamentarians are believed to have been hacked, a parliamentary spokesman said. Amid fears that the breach could lead to blackmail attempts, officials were forced to lock MPs out of their own email accounts as they scrambled to minimise the damage from the incident. The number of states who might mount such an attack on the UK is limited, and, in addition to Russia, includes North Korea, China and Iran. The attack on the Houses of Parliament sought to gain access to accounts protected by weak passwords.

The world champions, Germany, reached the Confederations Cup semi-final on Sunday with a 3-1 victory over a Cameroon side reduced to 10 men after further confusion with experimental video replays. There were signs of a comeback by Cameroon when Vincent Aboubakar’s flicked header slipped through Marc-Andre Ter Stegen’s raised hands. But Werner scored again in the 81st minute to secure a 100th victory for Joachim Löw in his 150th match in charge of Germany. Cameroon goalkeeper Fabrice Ondoa prevented Germany from extending their lead by blocking Kimmich’s shot from a tight angle. It was the latest by a Germany goalkeeper in the World Cup warm-up tournament.

This will be the last Glastonbury for two years, with a fallow year planned for 2018 to give the land – and the neighbours – a break.

The report of Dame Moira Gibb into the Church of England’s handling of the abusive bishop Peter Ball makes shocking reading. Lord Carey’s message to the diocese after Bishop Ball was arrested urged prayers for the bishop and said nothing about victims. Lord Carey nevertheless gave Peter Ball £12,000 from church funds, leading to loud complaints from the brothers, who had wanted £20,000. Lord Carey’s only objection to a full rehabilitation of Bishop Ball as a retired bishop was that it might provoke unfavourable publicity. Lord Carey’s successor, Rowan Williams did nothing to help Bishop Ball but very little and very slowly to hinder him either.

Promising to spend more money on policing has repeatedly proved politically popular and effective in modern Britain. Whether extra spending on police is actually an effective use of public money is a different question, however, especially when resources are tight. As prime minister in the 1980s, Mrs Thatcher lavished money on policing, yet crime rose consistently throughout her period in office and policing controversies over issues such as complaints, violence, race and accountability soared. Long before the current counter-terrorist concerns and the intense recent politicisation, the police watchdog, Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary, was pointing to the impact of spending cuts on the “cornerstone” areas of community and neighbourhood policing. It is a mistake to think about police cuts in exactly the same way as other cuts in public services.

Figures collected by PHE’s Local Tobacco Control Profiles network show that while there were 32,548 deaths from heart disease attributable to smoking in 2007-09, there were 25,777 between 2013 and 2015 – a fall of 20.8%. “The smokefree legislation has been extraordinary in the way we now experience and enjoy pubs, clubs, restaurants and so many other public places. It was undoubtedly the single most important public health reform in generations,” he added. The decline in smoking-related heart deaths is especially significant because smoking still accounts for about one in every six deaths in England – about 79,000 people a year. Smoking-related deaths are three times more likely to occur among poorer people than those from better-off backgrounds, research showed.

The Middlesex left-hander’s brutal debut innings of 78, followed by a professional shutout by the bowlers, took England to a 19-run victory over South Africa in Cardiff and with it a Twenty20 series win. With Joe Root and Ben Stokes rested completely, England have made little secret of their intention to widen the selection net. Morgan had said before the series that confronting De Villiers would be the perfect test of the 20-year-old’s temperament. At the other end Malan had glowed with confidence. The wrist-spinner, whom Malan took for five fours in total, eventually celebrated his demise, however, when long-on was picked out, and just when thoughts had been turning to the 29-year-old becoming the first centurion on debut.

Federer dropped just nine points on his serve as he beat Zverev 6-1, 6-3 epa/tyler larkinOver the course of just 53 minutes in Halle this afternoon, Roger Federer showed why he is the favourite to win a record eighth Wimbledon title at the age of 35. Federer’s 6-1, 6-3 victory over Alexander Zverev, the 20-year-old from Germany, sealed a ninth Gerry Weber Open championship. It also guaranteed the No 3 seeding at the All England Club, although he is undoubtedly the man to beat this year. A marker was also set down in Birmingham, where Petra Kvitova triumphed at the Aegon Classic with a 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 win against Ashleigh Barty, of Australia. The two-times Wimbledon champion was playing only her second tournament since being stabbed in her racket-holding left hand by an intruder at her home in the Czech…

Malan’s 78 from 44 balls was the highest T20 score by an Englishman on debut Geoff Caddick/AFPHaving been asked to bat on a good-paced pitch, England were indebted to an eye-catching debut innings of 78 from Dawid Malan as they clinched this three-match Twenty20 series with victory against South Africa in Cardiff. Afterwards, their bowlers, with the quicker ones using the short ball to great effect, squeezed the tourists to the extent that they managed only 162 for seven chasing 182 to win. All this despite England resting their captain Eoin Morgan, with Jos Buttler taking the reins. Malan struck the ball to all corners and launched one huge six down the ground Stu Forster/GettyThey had given a debut to Malan but not to Somerset’s Craig Overton.
