BAFTAs 2018: Pregnant Kate Middleton defies Time's Up

The Duchess of Cambridge has defied the Time's Up protest by arriving at the BAFTAs in a green dress instead of the black donned by the majority of the red carpet. Film stars and directors, dressed in black to show support for the fight against sexual harassment against women, began arriving at London's Royal Albert Hall Sunday evening for the film awards. With Hollywood still reeling from the fallout of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, the all-black dress theme mirrors other recent American red carpets - including last month's Golden Globes - showing solidarity with the #MeToo and 'Time's Up' anti-sexual harassment campaigns. The Duchess of Cambridge, who carried a black clutch bag, gave no prior indication on whether she would follow suit in the all-black attire when she attended with her husband Prince William, president of the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA). But she decided err on the side of caution and stick to royal protocol by not aligning herself with a public protest.

Labour MPs 'were paid £10,000 to meet spies’

Labour MPs were paid up to £10,000 to meet Eastern Bloc agents during the Cold War, an ex-spy claimed last night. Jan Sarkocy (inset) said at least 15 senior Labour figures had shared information with him in the late 1980s. Some pocketed between £1,000 and £10,000 per meeting but still wanted more, he alleged. The former Czech spy, who met Jeremy Corbyn (top) at the time, claimed the MPs 'wanted big bucks for giving us help'. His latest comments prompted calls for an official probe into the allegations. Mr Corbyn vehemently denies Mr Sarkocy's claim he was a paid informant of the Czech secret police. It was also alleged that John McDonnell (bottom) had met a KGB agent several times.

Shocking moment vice detective is arrested by COLLEAGUES after he tried to blackmail a man who was sleeping with a prostitute

A blackmail probe was launched after a distraught middle-aged man entered Luton Police Station clutching an envelope demanding a £1,000 payment - or else his family will be told he had visited a prostitute. The police initially turn their attention to the sex worker, a woman known as 'Kirie' (pictured bottom right), who advertises her services on an adult only website. But it quickly becomes apparent she has nothing to do with the plot. Instead, it turns out a CID detective from Bedfordshire Police's Serious Organised Crime Unit by the name of Gareth Suffling is the prime suspect. DC Suffling is arrested on camera (main image) by his own colleagues. Suffling (pictured sobbing after his arrest, top right image) later admitted blackmail and misconduct in public office and was jailed for 18 months. The police investigation - and DC Suffling's fall from grace - was captured in the Channel 4 documentary 24 hours In Police Custody: Sex And Corruption.

Leading economists, lawyers, philosophers, historians and social scientists from across Britain want to challenge the impression all academics oppose leaving the EU (clockwise from top left: Dr Graham Gudgin, Baroness Ruth Deech, Sir Richard Dearlove, Dame Helena Morrissey, Dr Terri Apter, David Abulafia, Rory Maw). The group, which includes Remain voters, has criticised the contempt shown by those seeking to reverse the referendum result who regard large numbers of Leave supporters as 'unworthy of consideration'. Trying to overturn that vote 'would outrage democratic sovereignty, cause dangerous and lasting dissension, and make the United Kingdom an international laughing stock', they said. A new website, briefingsforbrexit.com, will challenge 'ludicrous' claims about the economic consequences of leaving.

Should NHS fund £1million drug for Cheshire family

Amelia and Ollie, from Cheshire, (pictured main with mother Lucy and father Mike) suffer from a rare degenerative condition called Batten Disease, which is cruel and uncompromising, gradually robbing children of their sight and their ability to walk, talk and eat. If nature had been left to take its course, say her parents, Amelia would be in a wheelchair by now, unable to speak, never mind sing. She would most likely be dead by the time she was 12 years old. But with drug Brineura things could be radically different. The only problem is it costs £550,000 per child. Retired NHS surgeon J. Meirion (top right) says there's not enough evidence to justify spending the money, while Dr Andrew Hill (bottom right), a senior researcher in pharmacology, blames drug companies.
