Brexit Could Bring Calais Jungle To Britain

    Brexit could bring Calais jungle to Britain The Calais jungle refugee camp could be relocated to Britain if the UK chooses to leave the European Union, according to France's economy minister. In an interview with the Financial Times, Emmanuel Macron warned that Brexit would threaten the bilateral relationship between the UK and France. He said the Le Touquet Agreement, which allows British authorities to conduct border checks on the French side of the Channel, thereby keeping illegal migrants out, could be scuppered if the UK decides leaves the EU. The day this relationship unravels, migrants will no longer be in Calais and the financial passport would work less well, Mr Macron said. The newspaper also reported that Mr Macron believes many financial services workers will l...

North Korea launches short-range missiles into Sea of Japan hours after UN Sanctions

    North Korea has fired short-range missiles into the Sea of Japan - hours after the UN Security Council voted in favour sanctions against the regime. The South Korean defence ministry told the Yonhap news agency the projectiles were launched from Wonsan on the east coast, the BBC reports.

Bearded British man flies to Germany using his girlfriend’s passport and NOBODY notices

    A British man who flew to Germany using his girlfriend's passport only realised the mistake when he had arrived at his destination - having gone through security. Josh Reed, who is 6 ft 3 and has a beard, travelled from London Stansted to Dortmund on a Ryanair flight with petite brunette Sophie's ID, reports The Sun . According to the 21-year-old, security at the gate only checked his boarding pass, meaning he only spotted that he had the wrong travel documents when he landed in Germany. But at no point did anyone else notice that he wasn't girlfriend Sophie Watkins. Nightclub doorman Josh told The Sun: We have different surnames and we couldn't look more different. It makes you wonder how easy it would be for people that look alike to get through on fake passports. A spok...

MH370 search: Investigators confirm debris from plane but say they are still no nearer to discovering truth

A US official told CNN that the debris found in the Indian Ocean is probably a piece of horizontal stabiliser skin from a Boeing 777. If that proves correct, it is highly likely that the source is the missing Malaysia Airlines jet. MH370 disappeared on 8 March 2014 while on a routine flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. The last contact with the plane took place at 1.19am, when the captain acknowledged air-traffic control with the words “Good Night Malaysian ...
