US confirms that Iran has shot down one of its spy drones, as Tehran says its is 'ready

Iranian commander Hossein Salami (inset) declared his men were 'ready for war,' as the downing of the aircraft over its 'red lines' sent 'a clear message' to the Americans. Tehran alleged an RQ-4 Global Hawk (bottom right) was shot down over their southern coastal city of Hormozgan (top right), but a U.S. official said it had been a Navy MQ-4C Triton (left) in international airspace. A highly sophisticated missile will have been deployed, of deep concern to Washington not only for Tehran's patently advanced arsenal, but the secrets it could steal in examining the stricken drone. The MQ-4C soars to over 50,000ft, can be operated from 9,400 miles away and is loaded with optical/infrared sensors - it is believed to be the first time one has been taken out. It comes amid heightened tensions between Tehran and Washington over U.S. economic sanctions and alleged Iranian attacks on shipping in the Straits of Hormuz. Salami - head of the Revolutionary Guard - said Iran's borders 'represent our red line.' Tehran's response to the drone was 'a clear message' from the 'defenders of the borders' of Iran, Salami told the Tasnim news agency. Iran will 'respond to all foreign aggression and our reaction is, and will be, categorical and absolute.' U.S. military officials said Iran fired a missile at another drone last week that responded to the attack on two oil tankers near the Gulf of Oman.

Tory leadership: Johnson plots to knock out Gove with 'dirty tricks'

Boris Johnson's allies have been accused of an 'Oxford Union knifing' of Michael Gove (picture left at his London home today) amid claims dirty tricks are being deployed to get him out of the Tory leader battle. As MPs started voting in the crucial fourth round of the contest, the favourite's outriders have been accused of plotting to lend votes to Sajid Javid to settle old scores with Mr Gove. The extraordinary scheming comes as Jeremy Hunt (pictured right out running), Mr Gove and Mr Javid scramble to woo supporters of Rory Stewart - who was dramatically ousted from the contest last night. The field will be whittled down to two by the end of the day - with the party membership then getting to decide the winner.

Emiliano Sala: North Yorkshire man arrested on suspicion of manslaughter

Dorset Police have held David Henderson, 64, from York, (main picture) on suspicion of manslaughter by an unlawful act following the doomed flight from Nantes to Cardiff on January 21 this year. The plane containing Mr Sala's body was found on February 4 - 220ft down on the seabed off Alderney (inset) - but the pilot David Ibbotson (bottom right) has never been located. Mr Henderson had been asked by British football 'super agent' Willie McKay to take Sala, 28, (top right) to Wales after he completed his £15million transfer to the Premier League. But he then drafted in Mr Ibbotson, a boiler engineer and part-time pilot from Lincolnshire who was not qualified to carry paying passengers and should not have been flying at night or in bad weather. Mr Henderson had been feared dead after the flight plan for the doomed plane named him as the pilot. He was then forced to post a Facebook message the next day stating that rumours of his death were untrue and his friend had taken the controls instead. Detective Inspector Simon Huxter, of Dorset Police, the force leading the investigation because it is where Mr Sala's body was brought ashore, said last night: 'We have to consider whether there is any evidence of any suspected criminality and as a result of our inquiries we have arrested a 64-year-old man from the North Yorkshire area on suspicion of manslaughter by an unlawful act.' He has been bailed.

STEPHEN GLOVER: All pretence has gone. This Tory leadership 'debate' was rigged - and it hopelessly exposed BBC bias

STEPHEN GLOVER: After the fiasco of the BBC's leadership debate on Tuesday evening, it was still just about possible to think that what happened was more cock-up than conspiracy. One could believe, admittedly with a certain amount of effort, that the shambles was due to poor planning, and that there had been no intention to make the five Conservative candidates look stupid, shifty and disagreeable. But in the aftermath of the programme it has become irrefutable that it was rigged against the Tories. The question is to what degree this was deliberate.

The five-way BBC debate earlier this week has been widely condemned after it emerged one of the 'ordinary voters' posting questions was an imam who had previously posted vile tweets about Israel.

British pro wrestler Adrian 'Lionheart' McCallum dies aged 36

The 36-year-old former world champion (left and right) posted a cryptic final message (inset) to his 14,000 Twitter followers seemingly foreshadowing his own death. 'One day you will eat your last meal, you will hug your friend for the last time', he said. 'You might not know it's the last time, that's why you must do everything you love with passion.' The chilling message is a quote from Ricky Gervais' Netflix comedy 'After Life' and was said by Gervais' character, Tony Johnson, while he mourns the death of his wife. Lionheart, from Ayr, Scotland, had been a top wrestler for the last 10 years and was the wrestling firm's current world heavyweight champion. It is unclear where he died, and his cause of death is not known.

Emotional moment Dynasty actress Catherine Oxenberg called her daughter - a former sex slave in the US cult Nxivm - to reveal its founder had been found guilty

Couple 'devastated' after their £850,000 Norfolk Broads cottage develops a severe tilt

Ken Pitts and wife Gail, both in their 60s, discovered their idyllic thatched home on the River Bure in Horning, Norfolk had developed a severe tilt (pictured, main) around three months ago.
