Teen planned to be notorious campus killer

Liam Lyburd wanted to be a notorious killer. The 19-year-old planned to come to Newcastle College on November 3 last year and carry out a massacre that would give him a place in history.

The teenager had been sitting alone in his bedroom at the home he shared with his mother and sister for months buying his arsenal over the internet.

Armed with pipe bombs, CS gas, knives and a Glock handgun, he planned to carrying out mass killings in the campus that expelled him three years ago.

Officers formed a cordon but could not prevent the men, women and children, mainly from East African and Arab countries, from bringing the road out of the tunnel in Coquelles to a standstill.

French police told ITV News they are "completely outnumbered" by migrants.

White House to review petition to extradite Cecil hunter

The White House will review a petition to extradite Dr Walter Palmer

The White House said today it would review a public petition to extradite American dentist Walter Palmer accused of illegally killing Cecil, Zimbabwe's favourite lion.

The petition has exceeded the required 100,000 signatures, and the White House has said it will respond to all petitions that meet that level.

White House spokesperson Josh Earnest said it is up to the Justice Department to respond to an extradition order.

The incident is currently being investigated by Zimbabwean authorities and the US Fish and Wildlife Service, who said that efforts to contact Dr Palmer have been unsuccessful.

Finn bowls England to verge of victory over Australia

Deemed "not selectable" at the peak of his problems 18 months ago, Steven Finn bowled England to the verge of a resounding victory, and 2-1 Ashes lead, at Edgbaston.

Finn, back for his first Test in two years after much-chronicled technical problems, took five for 45 as Australia stumbled to 168 for seven by stumps on day two - a lead of only 23, despite opener David Warner's defiant 77.

He took two wickets in two balls here as England produced an outstanding turnaround after their embarrassing 405-run defeat at Lord's.

It should now merely be a matter of time - and not much of it at that - before they complete the win on the third morning of this third Investec Test.
