Strawberry moon will visible on Thursday in the UK

    Stargazers are in for a treat with both the Strawberry Moon and Saturn clearly visible on Thursday.

Brexit could trigger A $38 trillion financial crunch

    A major financial crunch on contracts worth almost £30 trillion ($39.7 trillion) could be on the horizon in March next year, the Bank of England warned on Wednesday.

Derivative markets allow those in the financial system to trade assets that have no inherent value, but derive their value from elsewhere, such as credit swaps and stock futures. European derivative markets are linked heavily between the UK and the rest of the continent, and the bank argued that if a fix cannot be found to all...

Trump’s big win on travel ban

    President Trump said the Supreme Court's decision to uphold the administration's travel ban was a tremendous victory for the country and constitution after Justices ruled 5-4 in the White House's favor.

Today's supreme court ruling is a tremendous success, a tremendous victory for the American people, and for our Constitution," Mr. Trump said. We have to be tough and we have to be safe, we have to be secure, he added, noting at a minimum we have to make sure we vet people coming into our country.

Air ambulance pilot lands helicopter during rush hour in City of London

    This is the incredible moment a pilot on an emergency call managed to land an air ambulance helicopter in the middle of London City rush hour with astounding skill. Footage of the landing was posted on Twitter, showing the chopper descending to the ground as stunned commuters watched on.

The area is one of the City's busiest rush hour regions, and commuters near the upmarket Crowne Plaza hotel stood and watched the incredible scenes unfold. The landing spot was also just yards from a busy Blackfriars underground station, used by thousands of people d...
