“The content of the messages horrified me to the point I felt dizzy,” Woodward said. Riches described himself as having a “cruel sense of humour” but eventually accepted it was “a bit out of order”. The teenager described himself as “not right in the head” after losing his job and a number of personal issues. As he was led away, he made a number of threats, shouting: “When I get out, I will fucking kill you.” Riches apologised to Woodward. Speaking after the case, Woodward said: “I have no doubt the intention of the person who sent these messages was to cause significant harm to me.

The Daily Mail said 11 “self-consumed malcontents” had betrayed their leader, party and 17.4 million Brexit voters. A reply to this tweet compared Soubry to William Joyce, known as Lord Haw Haw, who was hanged after the second world war for his wartime radio broadcasts from Nazi Germany. I’m sure some of these people, if they took a step back, would actually be appalled themselves. The idea perpetuated in some newspapers that she and other Tory rebels were seeking to overturn Brexit was nonsense, Soubry said. So, I accept we are leaving the European Union, even though the result was close.

Glynis Breakwell, the vice-chancellor of Bath University, which was criticised over the cost of paying the minuscule billBath University has been criticised for paying more than £2,000 to have its single peppercorn of rent delivered by parachute. The peppercorn is a token payment to Bath and North East Somerset Council for the annual rent of the university’s 200-acre campus. A 999-year lease was agreed with the university in 1964. Members of the council now want the agreement reviewed after learning that Dame Glynis Breakwell, the university’s departing chief executive, was being paid more than £450,000 a year. The councillors claim the institution could easily afford to…

Alston will produce a final report next May, which will then go before the UN human rights council. He will produce a final report next May and that in turn will go before the UN human rights council. Alston takes a strip out of the US for what he suggests are its double standards over human rights. The Trump administration, in line with previous US governments, preaches about human rights to other countries while refusing to be bound itself by international rules. “The persistence of extreme poverty is a political choice made by those in power.

Brighton are experiencing their first rocky patch since coming up and after such a good start have begun to look rather like a promoted side – conceding sloppy goals and failing to put chances away. The latter is a particular concern; their only goal in the past five games has come from the penalty spot and Burnley will take some imagination to break down. Sean Dyche and company have set a standard for teams in Albion’s position: at worst Saturday may be a useful learning exercise.

Almost a decade of improvements in household finances has started to be unpicked in the year since the EU referendum, according to the Bank of England. This could fuel growing concerns over the strength of household finances over the coming years. Only around 2.5% of homes with a mortgage would need to take action by spending less or working more, it said. Bank of England data shows personal debts have risen to levels unseen since the financial crisis, reaching more than £200bn. The Bank has been watching for rising pay levels to justify its rate hike, believing that higher wages tend to spark a spiral of increasing prices.

Antonio Conte expects to “suffer” against Southampton, which was a surprising choice of words before the visit of a team thrashed at home in midweek by Leicester. Yet Chelsea expect their visitors to be stung by that loss, and therefore much improved from the lethargic mishmash which succumbed too easily on the south coast. “The coach, the club, the players don’t want to extend a bad run, and will want to give a response against a team like Chelsea,” said Conte. “Manchester City only beat them recently in the 96th minute.” The champions will be wary.

The staple political Christmas card image used to be the awkward family photo, and it is to longstanding fan of the genre Tony Blair to whom we must turn this year.

Following a report of monkey-deer interactions earlier this year , researchers have now recorded the behaviour in another group of monkeysSexual interactions between snow monkeys and sika deer could be a new behavioural tradition within a group of monkeys observed in Japan, researchers have suggested. “The monkey-deer sexual interactions reported in our paper may reflect the early stage development of a new behavioural tradition at Minoo,” said Dr Noëlle Gunst-Leca, co-author of the study from the University of Lethbridge in Canada. To investigate, the team recorded the behaviour of snow monkeys at Minoo, north of Osaka in Japan. With only adolescent female monkeys spotted mounting deer, the team compared the interactions to sexual interactions between adolescent female monkeys. The successful sexual interactions observed involved a male deer, with the majority involving an adult male: two female deer and three young males courted by the monkeys simply reared up, unseating them.

The England captain had got the big call right and they had two in a hurry. After a horrid collapse before lunch, and an imposing start for Australia, England were suddenly back in the day, with Craig Overton looking more dangerous by the delivery. Only two of his 21 centuries have been reached in losing teams – and England cannot afford to lose here. Steve Smith leads Australia fightback after England tail collapses Read moreFrom the moment the home captain walked out he batted in a manner that suggests he gets this, too. So Smith went to work.

Prosecutors are seeking to upgrade a second-degree murder charge against James Fields in the collision that killed one person and injured dozensThe man accused of driving into a crowd protesting a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville faces a new charge of first-degree murder after a court hearing Thursday in which prosecutors presented surveillance video and other evidence against him. The helicopter had been monitoring the violence, and prosecutors questioned Charlottesville police detective Steven Young about the video as it played. After that footage, a man in the crowd shouted an expletive and cried out, “Take me out.” He and others left the courtroom. White nationalists gathered in Charlottesville, Virginia, to protest against a plan to remove a statue of Robert E Lee, the Confederacy’s top general in the American civil war. Fields would have faced between five to 40 years in prison for a second-degree murder conviction.

Sechin said in his testimony that Ulyukayev had asked for the bribe during a game of billiards at a summit in India. There was little evidence in the case except Sechin’s testimony, and he refused to show up at court despite receiving several summons. The case has widely been seen as Sechin’s revenge for Ulyukayev opposing Rosneft’s takeover of another oil company. While Russian courts rarely give innocent verdicts, many were expecting a suspended sentence as a compromise. The harsh sentence sent shockwaves through the more liberal parts of the Russian elite.
