Brits scoop Oscar for best documentary short

A film about Syria's White Helmets - rescuers who risk their lives to help save civilians caught in the country's devastating war - has scooped the Oscar for best documentary short.

The White Helmets was directed by Orlando von Einsiedel and produced by Joanna Natasegara - and our Ross King caught up with them both at the Vanity Fair's Oscar Party.

Oscars DISASTER as La La Land is mistakenly handed best picture Oscar

The Oscars was plunged into chaos as La La land was mistakenly announced as the best picture with the actual winner being Moonlight.

In a historic Academy Awards upset Warren Beatty read out the wrong winner.

Shock spread through the Dolby Theatre when producers of "La La Land" were stopped in the middle of their acceptance speeches to be informed that Beatty had incorrectly announced them as the winners.

Watch the excruciating moment above.

Top five headlines you're waking up to

  1. Moonlight has been awarded the Best Picture Oscar - after La La Land was handed the top award in error. The awards ceremony was plunged into chaos after presenter Warren Beatty was given the wrong envelope and announced the musical as the winner.

  2. The NHS is said to have lost more than half a million pieces of confidential medical correspondence, including blood test results, cancer clinic appointments and entire treatment plans. Sensitive patient data sent between GPs and hospitals went undelivered over the five years from 2011 to 2016.

  3. Theresa May faces a fresh rebellion in the House of Lords today over her Brexit plans. Peers from all parties say they will demand the proposed new law is re-written to include safeguards for EU citizens already living in the UK and also a veto on the final deal.

  4. There's calls today for GPs to receive better training on how to treat patients with eating disorders. Beat, the UK’s primary eating disorder charity, found that half of people with some experience of the condition rated GP care as “poor” or “very poor” and 30% were not referred to mental health services after their appointment.

  5. Use-by dates on milk should be scrapped to stop more than 100 million pints being wasted every year. Campaigners at Wrap, the waste reduction charity, are holding talks with the dairy industry to persuade them to use a best-before date instead. They say people should trust their noses to tell them when milk has gone off.

Becky Godden's mother: 'I've said all along I believe there are more'

If they find anything another family will have to go through this journey I've been through. My heart goes out to them.

– Karen Edwards

The mother of one of Christopher's Halliwell's victims Becky Godden joined us for an emotional interview as forensic teams resume excavation work at his former home.

The 53-year-old taxi driver, of Swindon, Wiltshire, is currently serving a double life sentence for the murder of Becky, 20, in January 2003 and Sian O'Callaghan, 22, in March 2011.
