Teen accused of alleged Anzac terror attack remanded

A 14-year-old British boy from Blackburn accused of inciting a terrorist attack on an Anzac Day event in Australia has been remanded in custody.

Prosecutors told Westminster Youth Court that the boy - thought to be the youngest person charged with Islamist-related terror offences in the UK - was arrested on an unrelated matter in March this year.

The alleged terrorist offences came to light when the police examined a mobile phone and discovered he'd been communicating with an 18-year-old in Melbourne, Australia.

Cameron pledges England-only committee in manifesto

David Cameron launched the Conservatives' first English manifesto in Lincoln today, pledging that when Scotland gets new powers of self governance, England will too.

"If English MPs do not have the right to vote on health and education in Scotland, why should Scottish MPs have the right to determine what happens in English hospitals and English schools?" he said.

MPs representing English constituencies will have a veto to block laws that only affect England, they will sit on a grand committee to approve English only legislation, Mr Cameron pledged.

But Ukip leader Nigel Farage said that Cameron has let down the English and is "desperately trying to play catch up".

Miliband accused of 'politicising migrant tragedy'

Labour leader Ed Miliband has been accused of "politicising a tragedy" by claiming that the coalition's lack of planning in post-conflict Libya was partly to blame for the migrant crisis.

Conservatives have accused Labour of drawing the link far too closely between David Cameron and the migrant deaths in the Mediterranean.

But at a news conference today, Miliband remained defiant, saying: "I don't think anybody in the foreign policy community or in the wider international community would disagree with what I have said, about the failure of post-conflict planning."
