Vandals have smashed military gravestones in a West Yorkshire cemetery in the week of the 75th anniversary of the D-day landings.

War graves commemorating soldiers who fought in the first and second world wars were targeted earlier this week at a cemetery in Shipley.

The gravestones had reportedly been provided by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission to mark the D-day anniversary.

A man who put a toddler into a tumble dryer has been convicted of a "monstrous" assault on the girl.

Thomas Dunn, 25, was taking care of the 13-month-old child for her teenage mother when he inflicted serious injuries on the youngster at his flat in Arbroath, Angus in Scotland in January 2018.

The court heard that when she appeared unresponsive he took her to hospital where doctors found fractures to her skull along with bruises and a bite mark on her arm.

A jury at Dundee Sheriff Court found Dunn guilty of endangering the child's life by repeatedly hitting her on the head and body and striking her against an unknown object or objects.

The court also found him guilty of culpable and reckless conduct concerning an earlier incident that saw him put the child in the tumble dryer while her mother was present.

The girl's mother told the court she heard a "thud" and turned around to see her daughter inside the machine with the door closed.

Referring to the later assault, Sheriff Alastair Brown told Dunn he "must have hit that little girl extremely hard at least twice" to inflict what were potentially life-threatening injuries.

He said it was "only by her good fortune and perhaps yours" that Dunn was not tried at the High Court on a charge of murder.

The toddler's mother, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, said she had let her Dunn take care of her child on three occasions because she had been finding it difficult to cope. She said: "I felt like he was a support at that time."

She left her child with Dunn, of Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, on the day of the assault while she visited a friend, the court heard.

The mother later received contact saying the girl had bumped into her buggy and had a bleeding nose.

He sent a message to her, which read: "I'm just raging as I thought she was chilling watching Paw Patrol then I heard the thud."

Dunn, who denied hitting the girl, later contacted the girl's mother to say he was taking the child to a minor injuries unit because she did not seem well after her nap and was "flopping to one side". He also said he noticed a small lump on her head.

An ambulance was called and an examination at hospital revealed two fractures to her skull.

Dunn's defence advocate Niall McCluskey said the tumble dryer incident had been a "stupid piece of tomfoolery", although he added that he did not wish to diminish the charge.

Sheriff Brown said: "The jury have found you guilty of behaving towards (the child) with utter indifference to her safety and I interpret their verdict as meaning that ... you assisted her into the tumble dryer and closed the door on her, when what you ought to have been doing, as any responsible adult, was stopping her from going in, in the first place."

The sheriff said he would refer the case to the High Court because he did not feel his sentencing powers were adequate to punish the "monstrous" assault and the tumble dryer charge.

Two further charges of assault, one on the girl and another on a young boy, were dropped

One of Britain’s most wanted fugitives has been arrested in Malta over the brutal killing of a father at a remote Cheshire farmhouse after 16 years on the run.

Detectives have been seeking Christopher Guest More Jr, 41, since he left the country shortly after the murder of Brian Waters on June 19, 2003.

The 44-year-old victim was tortured and beaten to death in front of his two adult children at Burnt House Farm in Tabley, near Knutsford.

More, who was wanted for questioning in connection with Waters’ death, the attempted murder of a second man and the false imprisonment and assault of other victims at the scene, was added to Europe’s most wanted list in April.

The National Crime Agency (NCA) said he was arrested in the Swieqi area, in the north of the island, on a European arrest warrant on Thursday night, in a joint operation with the Maltese authorities.

Graham Roberts, NCA regional manager, said: “We are utterly delighted that after almost 16 years on the run, hiding from law enforcement, Christopher Guest More Jr has been arrested and will now have to return to the UK.

“More Jr featured on the very successful Operation Captura fugitives hunt and, out of 96 fugitives, there are now just 12 evading justice.

“The NCA has supported Cheshire Constabulary with their investigation, using some of our specialist capabilities and our international network of officers, in his pursuit.

“We have waited a long, long time for this moment. We were never going to give up in the hunt. Other fugitives should really look at this and remember how tenacious UK law enforcement is

Who would take delight in doing this or seeing this happening?

Anti-US individuals? Nazi sympathizers? Or Americans who deeply believe in isolationist doctrine that used to be the lodestar of US diplomacy?
Believe it or not, it's true.

Eight women who were being sexually exploited have been freed from a brothel in Marbella by Spanish police.

Detectives have arrested 21 people suspected of being part of the criminal network that forbid the women from leaving the building - often subjecting them to "exhausting long days, fines and threats".

Drugs were also allegedly sold by the gang - with MDMA, cocaine, hashish, weapons and €1,000 in cash seized as part of the operation.

Police said some of the women had been deceived into thinking they would be working at a massage parlour, while others had gone to work at the brothel voluntarily.

The authorities were alerted to the brothel by a call to a sexual exploitation hotline.

It is believed that the gang are of Portuguese origin - and assets have been frozen across Spain and Portugal as a police investigation continues

Police have released photographs of 14 men after a group of Crystal Palace fans attacked officers ahead of a Premier League football match.

Trouble erupted in the build-up to Crystal Palace's home game against Brighton, which the away team won 2-1.

Police said they were called to the scene close to Selhurst Park stadium after a group of Palace fans let off fireworks.

Officers arrested a man, but he fled the scene after fellow supporters charged at officers.

Scotland Yard said the fans pushed and shoved the officers and became "increasingly aggressive" towards them.

They said the group's behaviour “had the sole objective of ensuring the escape of the detained male.”

The incident took place on Holmesdale Road around 12pm on March 9.

Acknowledge the corn, I thought it was in the US.

It is supposed to be:
Who would take delight in doing this or seeing this happening?

Anti-Semitic individuals? Neo-Nazis? Or Brits who have nothing better to do than vandalize to get their rocks off?


Believe it or not, it's true.
