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.
Penny for his thoughts: Barack Obama pictured in heavy contemplation as he's driven away from another round of golf in tiny new motorcade
Former President Barack Obama looked to be in deep thought (left) as he headed home from a workout, escorted by his smallest motorcade in years, on Sunday. The nation's 44th president has chosen to spend the first days of his newfound retirement playing golf and hitting the gym at Thunderbird Country Club in Rancho Mirage, just outside Palm Springs, California. He looked tiresome and in heavy contemplation, a stark comparison to when he was golfing at the ultra-exclusive Porcupine Creek Golf Club (inset) on Saturday.
British expat's dogs are massacred in feud with Spanish hunters: Five pets are shot and her horse has its eyes gouged after she bans the gang from her land
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. Miss Mitchell, 48, (pictured left with her daughter Ella, 11, and three dogs that survived the attack) initially accepted that hunters roaming across her land to shoot pheasants, deer, wild boar and rabbits was part of Spanish culture. But as her rescue centre flourished, she decided to seek a ban on the hunting as it was cruel to animals.

Broom cupboard sex with Wolf of Westminster? It's howlingly good! CHRISTOPHER STEVENS reviews Apple Tree Yard
Never has a TV drama raised so many awkward, sweaty questions... such as, 'Is my wife unfaithful?', 'Has my husband guessed?' and 'Is that George Osborne having a knee-trembler in a Commons broom cupboard?'

Madonna has spoken out via Instagram to clarify the statements she made in her impassioned speech during the Women's March on Washington.The Secret Service has reportedly said it will investigate her claim that she has thought about 'blowing up the White House'.

However, I know that acting out of anger doesn't solve anything. And the only way to change things for the better is to do it with love.'

Out with old, in with the gold! Donald changes Oval Office curtains and couches and brings back Bush rug as Melania meets designer to bring Trump Tower to DC - but will they pay for decor themselves like the Obamas did?
Within hours of being sworn in as president of the United States on Friday, Donald Trump immediately started making decorative changes to the White House. The Oval Office was redecorated for Trump, as gold curtains (pictured main left) were installed behind the Resolute desk, replacing the crimson curtains that were installed under Barack Obama tenure (pictured inset). The change was first noticed when Trump sat at the Resolute desk to sign an executive order on Obamacare and other memos in his first actions as president on Friday evening. In addition to the curtains being changed, the real estate mogul also got rid of a huge, circular rug from Obama's presidency that featured quotes from leaders including, MLK Jr. and four former presidents. It's replacement appears to be the sunburst gold and yellow rug with garland edges designed by Laura Bush during her husband's presidency, as it's said Bush requested to have one that expressed his spirit of optimism, ABC News reported. The billionaire is widely known for loving gold accents and features when it comes to interior decorating, as both his office and homes around the country feature it throughout (pictured right).

Earlier in the day, Donald Jr had posted a photo (right) of himself, wife Vanessa Haydon and daughter Kai Madison taken before the inauguration balls. And also on Sunday Tiffany Trump posted a photo of herself and Eric Trump, taken from the roof of the White House (inset).

Theresa's Mayday: Fury as PM stonewalls FOUR TIMES in TV grilling when asked whether she knew about the 'cover up' of the botched Trident missile 'flying towards America' before she got MPs to renew the £31billion nuclear system
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.
Do you think I'm tipsy? Twitter users ask whether Rod Stewart was a little bit drunk on TV as football fans go wild for his VERY enthusiastic performance during the Scottish Cup draw
The 72-year-old rocker smiled mischievously at the camera as he pulled out the balls of each team with tongue-in-cheek enthusiasm during the William Hill Scottish Cup draw. Sir Rod was accompanied by former Celtic player Alan Stubbs on the fifth round draw, who appeared to be both amused and bemused by the rock star's behaviour. However, taking to Twitter, supporters congratulated Sir Rod on adding some extra fun and games to the usually pretty uninspiring proceedings. Tweeter Rob Holder wrote: 'Rod Stewart doing the Scottish Cup draw is one of the best things I've seen.'
Did a UFO give Uri Geller magical powers when he was three years old? A dazzling ball of light floating above the little boy, then hitting him with a blinding beam...Sounds crazy? In fact, an air force captain saw it all - and confirmed every detail
Israeli psychic Uri Geller believes his powers were 'activated' by a chance encounter with a UFO when he was just three years old, writes JONATHAN MARGOLIS. And in a surprising twist, this account was backed up by a retired Israeli air force captain 35 years later in 2007. The entertainer's 'need for fame and fortune' also ended any chance of success working for the CIA, according to the biographer. Pictured is Geller in 2006 and, inset, with his mother and dog Joker during his teenage years in Nicosia, Cyprus.

Though she has been in the fashion business for 50 years, snowy-haired Maye Musk (pictured) is more in demand as a late-life model than she ever was as a fresh-faced teenager.
