Officer's son: I'd be happy to execute Roberts myself

The son of murdered police officer Pc Geoffrey Fox has told ITV News he would be "happy" to execute killer Harry Roberts himself.

Speaking after Roberts' release was approved by the Parole Board, Paul Fox said: "If they gave me the opportunity I'd be quite happy to execute him myself.

"I think [if] you live by the sword you die by the sword... personally I think the whole justice system is a joke."

Movements of Ottawa gunman seen in newly released CCTV

Police have released CCTV showing the movements of Ottawa gunman Michael Zehaf-Bibeau after he shot and killed soldier Cpl Nathan Cirillo.

People can be seen running from the War Memorial where Cpl Cirillo was killed before Zehaf-Bibeau arrives.

Zehaf-Bibeau then runs out of a car towards the parliament building, there he carjacks a car from the area where MPs park their vehicles.

In this second car Zehaf-Bibeau drives almost to the door of the parliament building before running inside pursued by police.

He was shot and killed inside the building.

Extra £1.7 billion sought from UK for EU budget

Britain is facing an extra £1.7 billion bill towards the EU budget.

The shock demand - which would add almost a fifth to the UK's annual contribution of £8.6 billion - is intended to reflect improvements to Britain's economy since the figures were last calculated.

Preliminary figures seen by the Financial Times suggest Britain is facing by far the biggest top-up. While Germany receives a rebate of 779m euro, France 1 billion and Poland 316 million.

A Downing Street source made clear the UK will challenge the demand.

The source said: "It's not acceptable to just change the fees for previous years and demand them back at a moment's notice."

David Cameron held talks this evening with his Dutch counterpart Mark Rutte, who also faces an extra 642 million euro bill, on what steps they can take next.

European Commission spokesperson Patrizio Fiorilli said: "Britain's contribution reflects an increase in wealth, just as in Britain you pay more to the Inland Revenue if your earnings go up."

Police have 'no information linking' Canadian terror attacks

The man that police say was responsible for yesterday's Ottawa attack was not one of the 90 high-risk travellers that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police was investigating.

Police said that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau was a Canadian citizen, but may have had dual Libyan citizenship and had hoped to travel to Syria and acted alone.

Despite the Ottawa attack being the second terror related incident in the country this week police say they have no information linking the two.
