Pictured: 'Troubled' neighbour who 'shot children's book-writing parish councillor'

Parish councillor James Nash, 42 (left), was in hospital last night with serious injuries following the attack (top right) in the pretty Hampshire hamlet of Upper Enham (bottom right), near Andover. Officers gave chase in a patrol car after the gunman fled on a motorcycle, but he later crashed. Police yesterday confirmed that the motorcyclist was pronounced dead at the scene. He was named locally last night as Alex Sartain (centre), 34. A villager said: 'We don't know what caused the younger man to target James – there must have been a dispute of some sort. But I know that the shooter was a troubled soul who had had issues with drink or drugs.' The villager said he had heard that Mr Nash was fired at with a 'homemade shotgun'. The parish councillor is married to Sarah (inset), a senior space scientist, and was described as a man committed to his community who last year took on the role of Father Christmas in a local village hall.

Beirust explosion: Politician blames Hezbollah and government

Bahaa Hariri (inset), 54, said last night that everyone in the city knew Hezbollah controlled Beirut's port and airport and it was inconceivable that authorities did not know the deadly ammonium nitrate was stored in a warehouse. The explosion on Tuesday night, which was reportedly the size of a small nuke, has left at least 137 people dead and a further 5,000 wounded. There are now thought to be 300,000 left homeless and wide-spread damage estimated at up to $5billion - including a 120-metre long cruise ship which capsized as a result of the blast (left). The explosion has threatened to reignite anti-government protests in Lebanon that have been ongoing since last year amid allegations of entrenched incompetence and corruption. Emmanuel Macron offered France's support for the Lebanese people as he visited Beirut on Thursday, but warned the country would 'continue to sink' unless its leaders carry out reforms.

Saudi Crown Prince 'sent hit men to Canada to assassinate top "spy" and arrested his

Saad Aljabri (left), a former high-level intelligence official for the Saudi government, has filed a lawsuit in US federal court alleging that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (bottom right) dispatched a team of hit men to his place of exile in Canada in an attempt to have him assassinated. Aljabri is a former top aide to then-Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef, who was deposed by MBS in a brutal palace coup in 2017. Aljabri alleges that MBS ordered the arrest of two of his children, son Omar (top left inset), 21, and daughter Sarah (top right inset), 20, in an attempt to 'lure' him back to Saudi Arabia. The alleged plot to kill Aljabri was thwarted less than two weeks after the October 2018 killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi (bottom left inset), who was said to have been dismembered and tortured inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. The CIA says MBS ordered the Khashoggi killing.

Fears for holidays as travel experts warn France 'is highly likely' to be added to

Travellers from France could soon face a 14 days of self-isolation on their return to the UK following a dramatic rise in coronavirus cases amid speculation it will be added to the Foreign Office's quarantine list. France yesterday recorded 1,695 new infections with the country seemingly being hit by a second wave of Covid-19. It is thought that if the decision is made to add France to the list, thousands of British holidaymakers may cancel their trips in order to avoid the two-week quarantine.

Janet Street-Porter says pubs must shut if people can't behave

JANET STREET-PORTER: Last week's lockdown in Manchester brought absolutely no difference to the numbers swanning about on Friday night, hoping to get hammered. Now, we're seeing the results. In Scotland, there's been a huge spike in new Covid cases - 64 and rising - the vast majority linked to patrons of 28 bars in the city of Aberdeen. Nicola Sturgeon swiftly imposed a local lockdown from 5pm last Wednesday, closing all bars, cafes, pub and restaurants in the city and told people not to travel there. The same story has been happening in Melbourne and in the USA. So is this a pattern that will be repeated? Is Nicola Sturgeon guilty of over-reacting, given that Scotland has now gone 20 days without anyone dying who had tested positive? Inset, Matt Hancock. Inset, Janet Street-Porter. Main, revellers drinking in the street in Soho, London.

Caroline Flack and Lewis Burton 'assault' accounts conflicted

Police attended Flack's home in December after Mr Burton, said to be bleeding profusely from a cut to his head, phoned emergency services saying she was trying to kill him. A section from the police incident report described how Flack made admissions to officers called to the scene. It said: 'He [Mr Burton] made an allegation he had been asleep in bed with Ms Flack, and he had been suddenly woken by her hitting him on the head with some force. Flack made a number of admissions in the presence of police officers, statements such as: 'I hit him, he was cheating on me'.'

Alarm over radical planning reforms that will place building burden on rich areas 

NEW Affluent areas will be forced to build more new homes in a radical shake-up of the planning system that will see computers decide on applications. Boris Johnson (right) last night admitted the controversial reforms will be seen by some as 'too much change too fast' and 'too much of a break from what has gone before'. But the Prime Minister insisted it was important to 'take big, bold steps' so the country can 'finally build the homes we all need'. Local residents and councillors will get to have their say on which bits of land in their area should be designated. But once this is done, they will no longer get to decide on individual applications.

Ben Gravolet, 52, told DailyMailTV in an exclusive interview that 'vile' Ellen DeGeneres bullied him as an 11-year-old boy, calling him 'fat' and 'stupid'. Gravolet, of Belle Chasse, Louisiana, said Ellen, now 62, worked for his mother's recruitment agency in the 1970s. He claimed Ellen - then aged about 20 - would regularly subject him to biting, mean insults. Gravolet said: 'She would criticize my weight. I would try to do homework in the office, she'd call me stupid, she'd call me fat. She would criticize my clothes. 'I was just a boy and this was a grown woman who took pleasure in seeing me become visibly upset,' he added. He said: 'It has an effect if somebody in a superior position to you, who's much older, goes ''You're fat. You might want to lose some of that weight chunky boy''. Calling Ellen 'vile', the father-of-three said the multi-millionaire comedian 'was just the meanest, nastiest, most horrible person'. His allegations follow claims from dozens of staff on The Ellen DeGeneres Show who have said that racism, bullying and sexual harassment was rife at the show.

A tragic last photo has emerged showing firefighters sent to tackle a blaze in Beirut's port prying open a door at Warehouse 12 (left) - where, unbeknownst to them, 2,750 tons of ammonium nitrate was being stored (right) that would explode moments later with the force of a small nuke (inset). The photographer has been confirmed as killed in the blast, while nine firefighters are missing (several of them pictured, bottomleft ) - presumed dead - after being sent to tackle an initial blaze which sparked the much-larger explosion. A tenth firefighter, 25-year-old Sahar Fares (bottom right) has been confirmed dead.

MANDY APPLEYARD: 'How my mother's cruel stroke changed me for the better'

MANDY APPLEYARD: For my first night of freedom in eight months, I was looking forward to a relaxed summer's evening alone at home (left), playing Bruce Springsteen at a disgraceful volume, eating an Italian takeaway, then lying for far too long in a bubble bath, sipping white Rioja. That was the plan. Since November last year, I have been working as my 83-year-old mother's day and night-time carer (pictured right together before life changed), after she suffered a catastrophic stroke six months earlier. Now she had left.

Madalin Giorgetta (pictured), who lives in Perth, Western Australia, gained 865,000 Instagram followers by posting her own 'transformation' images to social media, but now recognises this is not a show of 'empowerment'.

'What effect does this have on our body image? Am I learning to accept my body through these images or am I merely being entertained? I don't feel worse or better about my body after viewing this type of content.'
