a lot of rain. Not particularly heavy across the Midlands. We've had some fog that is lifting its low cloud. Then in the east, brighter skies and sunshine. As we move north into northern England, the rain, more patchy. The far north of Scotland, a cool start to the day

Neighbours said Mr Gorokhov fell while trying to lift furniture into his apartment with some workmen, but the former employer of Magnitsky said the fall was suspicious. They were lifting a Jacuzzi through the window, according to Anastasia Berezina, 22, a neighbor who called an ambulance for Gorokhov, told the AP. Ms Berezina said that the equipment Mr Gorokhov and other workers were using was ramshackle. Russian media published photographs from the scene that show a damaged bathtub in the street next to some wooden scaffolding. Bill Browder, the head of Hermitage Capital, the company that Magnitsky was representing when he was jailed, said Mr Gorokhov had been “pushed” but did not elaborate on the claim. In a statement, he said the account of the incident reported by Russian state owned media contradicted witness accounts.

We also spoke about Twitter’s attempt to use the statutory means provided in the USA Freedom Act to seek more transparency into similar NSL requests. Shortly after that post, we received word that the DOJ and FBI responded to our USA Freedom Act notices regarding three additional NSLs lifting the accompanying gag orders. Twitter said it provided notice, including a copy of the data it gave to government, to the affected users. The company saw a rise in the number of requests to remove content from verified members of the media, receiving 88 legal requests from around the world. We did not take any action on the majority of these requests, with limited exceptions in Germany and Turkey, the latter of which accounted for 88% of all requests of this nature, Kessel said. For example, we were compelled to withhold Tweets sharing graphic imagery following terror attacks in Turkey in response to a court order.

Being an M Performance model, standard equipment is strong, with sport seats and a sport steering wheel lifting the interior ambiance above standard versions. Space in the front is good, but compared to more efficiently packaged rivals, room in the back seat and boot are a little tight for a hatch in this class. Image 11 of 14 Image 11 of 14 Interior tech is typically BMW; the ubiquitous i-drive system is well designed and easy to navigate. Upgrade to the larger 'professional' i-drive system and BMW’s latest suite of online services complements one of the best user interfaces in the business. Apple Carplay and Android Auto are available as options, although the BMW system is so good you wont really need them. Thanks to the 1-seriesrelative age, the latest in active safety kit is an obvious omission, with features like line departure warning and emergency autonomous braking part of a Driving Assistant option for £390.

Voyeur Neil Terry has admitted sneaking into a caravan and lifting a woman's duvet to observe her naked body.

A court heard Terry made no recording of what he saw but now he has pleaded guilty to voyeurism. The charge stated that for sexual gratification you observed a woman doing a private act, something she did not consent to being observed. His case was adjourned for...

Two years after its last major refresh, Samsung is back with the Galaxy Tab S3. A lot has changed in tablet land in the past two years. Sales have slowed considerably, as consumers have stubbornly opted not to upgrade. Manufacturers, meanwhile, are cannibalizing sales from all sides. Samsungs got a lot of heavy lifting to do when it comes to reigniting consumer excitement around the space. Read More

Park was accused of failing to take decisive action after news broke that the ferry was in trouble. She denied that, but she never fully explained what she was doing during the seven hours between the first news reports and her first television appearance that day. Her response to the disaster was again raised in recent months after she came under suspicion in the course of an investigation into a corruption scandal that led to her dismissal from office on March 10. A Chinese salvage company has fitted 33 beams beneath the hull, which will be raised by 66 hydraulic jacks. The lifting system will be tested on Wednesday, the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries said in a statement, and if all goes to plan, the salvagers might just go ahead and bring the ship up. "If the test operation goes well today, we will initiate the actual operation to refloat the Sewol," a ministry official said.

Germany is expected this week to approve lifting the convictions of 50,000 men sentenced for homosexuality under a Nazi-era law which remained in force after the war, and offer compensation. The measure marks a triumph for activists after a decades-long struggle to clear the names of gay men who lived with a criminal record under Article 175 of the penal code, but for those whose loved ones died before seeing justice, the victory is bittersweet.

Engine, transmission and 0-60 time Despite losing four cylinders and two of its driven wheels, the GTC4 Lusso T is only fractionally slower than the more expensive 12-cylinder car. Thanks to Ferrari’s Variable Boost Management system, turbo lag is all but eliminated – with the 1865kg four-seater revving cleanly to its 7500rpm red line500rpm shy of the 488 GTB and 750rpm less than the GTC V12. Image 2 of 32 Image 2 of 32 The Lusso T sprints from 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds – just one tenth slower than the V12. The V8 packs 603bhp and 561lb ft of torque, versus the 12-cylinder’s 681bhp and 514lb ft. Performance is effortless and remarkably linear, but it misses out on the flagship car’s ear-piercing crescendo at the very top end. Lifting the seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox from the existing GTC4 means you get the same thumping changes in Sport mode, while leaving it in auto allows the Lusso T to cruise like a Bentley Flying Spur.

No. We don't yet. If it was just a few weeks into June I don't think it would matter too much but if it was many months into the summer that would be a different matter. Early on they had problems laying the foundations, last year when they were lifting the deck sections into place that was delayed by bad weather.
