Police also seized more than 500 mobile phones as they rifled through goods at 10 shops and stalls for which search warrants were issued.

The royal mad horse suddenly ran amok in the streets of London

Five British military horses including one soaked in blood sparked chaos in London on Wednesday after they bolted through the streets near Buckingham Palace during the morning rush. The rogue Household Cavalry horses, who were wearing saddles and bridles, were spotted charging through the heart of the UK capital, injuring four people, around 8:30 a.m., the Telegraph reported. The runaways got spooked by nearby construction workers during a morning exercise in Belgravia and threw their riders before charging through the busy streets. Wild footage posted on social media showed one of the horses galloping past Buckingham Palace at one point. At least two others, including a white horse covered in blood, could be seen tearing through other busy areas of the city, including Tower Bridge a...

Bangladeshi doctor’s ‘miracle treatment’ warning in Britain

A warning, seen by LBC, was circulated by safeguarding agencies across Nottinghamshire and the London Borough of Newham last night after Newham received reports the doctor was advertising an intervention in the borough for autistic children. An urgent alert has been issued to schools warning a rogue doctor is arriving from Bangladesh promoting a miracle cure for autism, LBC can reveal. The Metropolitan Police confirmed it is investigating the sinister adverts as fraud. They promote an unlicensed procedure, and are designed to deliberately target the Bangladeshi community. No arrest has been made as officers work to establish the identity of the so-called doctor and confirm where they are based. The treatment the individual is proposing to undertake is a procedure involving the possib...

Rishi Sunak now almost as unpopular as Conservative Party

Rishi Sunak is now almost as unpopular as his party after a year of deteriorating polling numbers. Having entered Downing Street considerably more popular than the wider Conservative Party, 52% of voters now say they have an unfavourable view of the Prime Minister, according to a poll published by Ipsos UK on Thursday. At the start of the year, 39% of voters told Ipsos they had an unfavourable view of Mr Sunak, compared to 51% saying the same about the Conservative Party. The figure for the wider party has barely changed, rising slightly to 54% in November, while Mr Sunak’s favourability rating has collapsed. Keiran Pedley, director of politics at Ipsos, said: In January, Rishi Sunak held a net favourability rating of minus 9 whilst the Conservative Party stood at minus 26. Today Mr S...

British Bangladeshi Samata Ullah’s parole application rejected

Bangladeshi-born British terrorist Samata Ullah, who wanted to store military information on James Bond-style USB cufflinks and help ISIS, has been denied parole. Samata Ullah, 34, created a ‘one-stop shop’ for terrorists from his bedroom in Cardiff. He used to give various directions on how to evade the prying eyes of the police and security forces. Jihadi Samata is a British citizen of Bangladeshi origin. The former insurance executive wanted to help IS fighters around the world. Police in Britain described his conviction in 2017 as the biggest terrorist plot they had ever seen. The trial at London’s Old Bailey was told that Samata Ullah was found in his bedroom following the arrest of an accused mastermind of an anthrax attack in Kenya. British counter-terrorism police tracked him ...

Why the pound is in freefall

The pound has tumbled to a six-month low against the US dollar as traders predict the end of interest rate rises from the Bank of England and as America’s economy proves remarkably resilient. Sterling has dropped to $1.215, a level not seen since March and a sharp drop from its peak above $1.31 in July. The currency has fallen more than 3pc against the dollar so far this month and is now on track for its worst month since the aftermath of the mini-Budget last year. However, it remains well above the extraordinary depths of $1.068 plumbed a year ago in the wake of Liz Truss’s fiscal statement. Then, a bond market crunch took hold and shook confidence in Britain. This time around, it is not so serious. However, the weaker currency threatens to add to inflationary pressures and could mak...

After violently raping the victim, the rapist doctor threatened to release the video

A doctor who violently raped a woman and then threatened to release a video of the attack said he was not interested in the outcome of a medical tribunal and wants to quit the UK due to stressful personal events. Vibhor Garg, who was branded selfish as he was jailed for 11 years, has been immediately banned from working in medicine by a Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service panel, which said his behaviour undermined patients’ and the public’s trust in the profession. But the 37-year-old, who qualified from the University of Baroda in India, said in a letter to the panel: “I am not interested in (the) outcome of the case as I will be deported out (of) the country at the end of my sentence. I no longer wish to stay and practice medicine in the UK, even if given the opportunity, due to ...

PM set to make major net zero announcement

Rishi Sunak has signalled key net zero policies could be watered down, including delaying the ban on petrol cars. Rishi Sunak will deliver a speech in Downing Street at 4.30pm amid speculation he will water down net zero commitments. The PM has provoked a green backlash and anger among some of his own MPs amid reports he plans to water down key net zero policies. An announcement could mean a proposed ban on buying new petrol cars and oil boilers to help the UK meet its net zero commitments could be delayed. The PM has said he doesn't want to bankrupt the UK - but critics have also branded it a political move designed to curry favour with the public to boost the Tories, who are flagging in the polls. The announcement has sparked condemnation from campaigners, opposition MPs and MPs in ...

Two illegal Bangladeshi workers arrested in UK

Two men have been arrested at an Indian restaurant in Beccles during an immigration raid. Indiagate Tandoori Restaurant was raided by Home Office immigration officials after they received a tip-off.

The raid happened on August 10 and has also led to East Suffolk Council reviewing the licence of the premises. East Suffolk Council said that the grounds for the licence review are the "prevention of crime and disorder" and that "illegal working has been identified at this premises".

Some creepy-crawlies inspired a grandmother to enter the National Lottery and scoop a massive win which will see her bank £10,000 every month for the next 30 years. Thanks to her big win, Doris will receive £10,000 in her bank every month for the next 30 years, with the 70-year-old joking that "it gives me a reason to be around until I am 100". Doris Stanbridge scooped the top prize on Thursday, August 3, a week after her 70th birthday after she was prompted to take a chance of the Lucky Dip Set For Life ticket after encountering two money spiders. Due to her incredible win, Doris, from Dorking, Surrey, is now able to retire alongside her 66 year old husband Keith. She said: I wasn’t planning on retiring for a few more years but I am going to stop working in the next few months. Keith...
