  • Video 'taken inside doomed plane' found

    German daily Bild and French magazine Paris Match said their reporters have been shown a video they say was taken by someone inside the cabin of the doomed plane shortly before it crashed. Both periodicals reported that the video was found on a memory chip that could have come from a mobile phone. Paris Match said the footage was found “among the wreckage by a source close to the investigation”. Lieutenant Colonel Jean-Marc Menichini, a high ranking official involved in the recovery operation, categorically denied that any mobile phone footage had been found at the site.

  • It's not Susanna Reid's week - now her dress has split on Good Morning Britain

    Good Morning Britain presenter Susanna Reid had to rush off to change her dress during the breakfast TV show after suffering a wardrobe malfunction.

Luckily for Susanna her dress split while the cameras were not on her, but Kate Garraway explained: “Susanna’s just nipped out of the studio with a slight wardrobe malfunction. “All will be sorted out although it has warmed John up this morning so he’s very pleased about it. q
  • England fans heard singing anti-IRA songs again

    England fans sang anti-IRA songs during Tuesday's friendly in Italy despite efforts from the Football Association to stamp the chants out in the wake of last year's match in Scotland. England fans caused controversy last November when they chanted "F*** the IRA" during the 3-1 victory at Celtic Park. Any repeat during England's next match against the Republic of Ireland in Dublin on June 7 would lead to yet more criticism.

  • Liverpool fans never attacked my ambulance, insists Alan Smith

    The former Manchester United player dismissed one of the most depressing football tales in the latest issue of FourFourTwo magazine. In the Anfield clash of United and Liverpool in February 2006, Smith suffered a horrible injury, breaking his leg and dislocating his ankle as he attempted to block a free kick from John Arne Riise. With the usual bad blood bubbling between supporters of the clubs, rumours quickly spread after the game that Liverpool fans had attacked the ambulance taking Smith to hospital, throwing bottles and rocking the vehicle from side to side.

  • Hodgson jumps to defence of beleaguered United 'destroyer'

    Roy Hodgson leapt to the defence of Phil Jones after he was criticised for his performance in England’s 1-1 draw with Italy. Jones looked off the pace at the bottom of a midfield diamond in Turin and he also allowed Giorgio Chiellini to brush past him and set Graziano Pelle up for Italy’s opener. Social media was awash with negative reaction to the 23-year-old’s performance, but Hodgson praised the Manchester United man instead, although he admitted his team looked far more comfortable when Michael Carrick was deployed there after coming on for the ill Chris Smalling.

    Celebrations of the 1916 Easter Rising will include a memorial to the British who died trying to crush the rebellion in a bid to make events more inclusive. As the full programme of commemoration was unveiled, the Government was again attacked by some opposition figures for misjudging the tone of how to mark the centenary. Under the plans outlined at Collins Barracks by Taoiseach Enda Kenny and other ministers, all schools will receive a tricolour and copy of the proclamation in order to try and spark debate on how Ireland should evolve. Schools will hold “proclamation day” on March 15 next year to project forward the idea of what revolutionaries today would call for.
