A migrant boat has capsized in the Mediterranean off the Libyan coast with an unknown number of people feared to have drowned.
An Italian coastguard spokesman said that an unknown number of people are thought to have died and 88 have been rescued by coastguard vessels following the capsize earlier today off the coast of Libya.
It was earlier reported that 80 people had died, but this is now not thought to be the case.
It is not known how many people were on board what is thought to be a wooden fishing vessel.
It is the second deadly incident in two days, after five were confirmed to have died when an overcrowded fishing boat flipped over on Wednesday.
Strike action in France has led to the cancellation of Brittany ferry services between Portsmouth and Le Havre.
The services cancelled today are:
Le Havre to Portsmouth 2200
Portsmouth to Le Havre 2315
Tomorrow the Le Havre to Portsmouth 2200 has also been cancelled.
All other services to and from the ports of Caen, Cherbourg, St Malo and Roscoff are operating as normal.
Because of the on-going fuel strikes in France Brittany Ferries is urging customers to depart with enough fuel to reach their destination in France, or to leave with a full tank of petrol or diesel.
Many petrol stations across France remain blockaded as part of the industrial action that has also seen flights cancelled and rail strikes.
Nearly half of all filling stations have completely or partially run out of fuel.
ITV News' Dan Rivers is on holiday in France and has been rationed to 25 euros of fuel.
The steel trade unions have welcomed the Government's consultation on changes to pensions law as part of efforts to save Tata Steel and called on the company to uphold its "legal, social and moral responsibilities" to steel workers.
In a combined statement, Community, Unite and GMB endorsed the move to avoid the "unmitigated disaster" of the British Steel Pension Scheme (BSPS) going into the financial safety net of the Pensions Protection Fund (PPF) with a sale of Tata's assets.
The Human Resources director for Tata Steel's European operations said the consultation would enable a "better outcome" for the vast majority of members of the BSPS.
Business Secretary Sajid Javid has confirmed the Government is set to launch an "open consultation" on changes to pensions law as part of efforts to save Tata Steel despite being "very wary of setting a precedent".
The consultation, which will run until June 23, sets out a number of different options for the British Steel Pension Scheme and its 130,000 members.
The scheme includes 14,000 people currently employed by Tata or another employer, 32,000 are deferred (no longer employed by Tata but below the scheme's normal pension age) and 84,000 pensioners.
The Government has been warned against the impact of setting a precedent by seeking to change pension law.
"No decision (on Tata's future) has been made," Mr Javid told MPs. "We are very wary of setting a precedent ... this is very much about this scheme and this scheme only in these very unique circumstances."
Shadow business secretary Angela Eagle warned against cutting the fund's long-term liabilities by benchmarking it to the consumer price index (CPI) rather than the higher retail price index (RPI), saying: "This change is currently illegal."
Boris Johnson has responded to the European Commission President's questioning of whether his depiction of the EU is "in line with reality".
Jean-Claude Juncker said it was time for Mr Johnson to come back to Brussels "in order to check" what he is telling the British people.
It comes after Mr Johnson recently compared the EU's expansion plans with the European goals of Adolf Hitler.
The former London mayor, and 'Vote Leave' campaigner ,told ITV News: "I think what's happening now in Brussels is alarming."
"They are trying to build as I say, a federal structure bubble-gumming together these different countries with a United States of Europe build around a fiscal and political union designed to prop up the euro in which Britain will inevitably be involved."
French dock workers have stormed the port city of Le Havre and thrown smoke bombs into fountains, the Associated Press has reported.
The trouble comes amid widespread strike action over the country's controversial reforms to labour laws.
The unions are involved in a stand-off with the government over reforms which will make it easier for firms to hire and fire employees.
