It was a blatant assassination

Michael Brown was shot six times, an autopsy into the killing of the unarmed black teenager by a police officer, commissioned by his family, has found.

George Osborne under pressure to cut rail fares

George Osborne is coming under pressure to cut rail fares on the day the commuters discover how much season ticket will cost next year. Later this morning, we will find out how much rail fares will rise and they're expected to go up by nearly six per cent. It means some annual season tickets could rise by £300.

Last year George Osborne said fares could only go up by the rates of inflation - he's now under pressure to do the same again. Many commuters travel into towns and cities from marginal constituencies, and the next series of rises come into effect in January, just a few months before a General Election in May.
