ANYONE could get to the UK on Eurostar without a passport

Terrorists and criminals can travel to Britain on the Eurostar without any form of identification for as little as £2.60 by taking advantage of a loophole from the Schengen Agreement, it has been revealed. The shocking loophole takes advantage of the open-borders Schengen Agreement that allows people to travel across Europe without showing a passport. Britain is not part of the agreement and travellers are expected to show passports when they board the Eurostar to come here. But the loophole allows passengers to board the Eurostar without identification in Brussels with a ticket to the French city of Lille - and to simply remain on the train when it heads to London. Pictured is reporter Glenn Keogh, who boarded the train in Brussels (left) and was able to stay on at Lille (right), before arriving in London (inset) without any passport checks.

Expat’s dogs massacred in feud with Spanish hunters

WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT Gunmen shot the pets at Illona Mitchell's animal rescue centre in Granada, southern Spain, after creeping on to the property at night. Locals believe it was a revenge attack because she refused to let them hunt on her land.

Trident fiasco 'covered up by No10'

The PM failed to answer questions about claims No10 imposed a 'news blackout' on the failed test just weeks before a crucial Commons vote on the future of Britain's nuclear deterrent. The missile, fired from HMS Vengeance during a test last June near the coast of Florida, was reportedly aimed at a sea target off the west coast of Africa but may have gone in the wrong direction, towards the US. Theresa May was accused of omitting any reference to the failed test when MPs voted in July to renew Trident and spend £31 billion on four new submarines to deliver the deterrent. But Mrs May dodged questions on her knowledge of the test during an interview on the Andrew Marr Show today.

Retired builder, 65, knocks up a bizarre UPSIDE DOWN house

A retired builder in Brazil has knocked up a totally upside down house - with the roof at the bottom and the front door at the top. Valdevino Miguel da Silva, (pictured outside the house left, with his wife Maria), said: 'I've worked for such a long time in the industry that when I retired I wanted to do something different and exciting.'
