A man from Dudley has been sentenced to jail for stealing a 4x4 in an attack that left its owner with severe leg injuries.
Chase Edwards, 30, was given seven years and four months for a string of offences including theft, robbery and driving while disqualified and without insurance.
Shocking CCTV footage shows fruit and vegetable seller Stuart Timmins being flung from his 4x4 as he clung on to try to stop Mr Edwards from stealing it.
He was dragged a few hundred metres along the road but as the pick-up accelerated away he realised it was too dangerous to cling on any longer.
A man from Hampshire has been jailed for 11 months after being found guilty of breaching an anti-social behaviour order banning him from being naked in public, minutes after it was issued. Stephen Gough, 53, from Eastleigh was not allowed in court for his trial after he refused to wear any clothes.
He had denied the charge but offered no defence at Portsmouth Crown Court.
Simon Jones, prosecuting, said the naked rights activist left Southampton Magistrates' Court on February 28 after being handed the interim order and walked, wearing just his boots and socks, to the road where he was arrested.
A cat's bid to become mayor of the Mexican city of Xalapa, has become a social media phenomenon.
Morris the Cat's campaign was initially started as a joke by a group of friends who were disenfranchised with their local politicians.
However, since its launch with the slogan, "Tired of voting for rats? Vote for a cat", the campaign has gathered momentum.
A Facebook page now more than 131,000 likes, more than any of his human competitors in the election.
The Guardian quotes the cat's owner Sergio Chamorro as saying: "Morris has become an expression of how fed up people are with all the parties and a political system that does not represent us".
Mexico will hold its local elections on 7 July.
Dolce and Gabbana's trademark of corset dresses and sharply-tailored suits are favoured by celebrities such as actress Scarlett Johansson, Kate Moss and Bryan Ferry.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have today been sentenced to one year and eight months in prison for hiding hundreds of millions of euros from Italian tax authorities.
The case against fashion duo Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana - who have been found guilty of tax evasion - dates back to an investigation that began in 2008.
A judge ruled that the pair sold their brand to Luxembourg-based holding company Gado in 2004 to avoid declaring taxes on royalties of about 1 billion euros.
The designers are one of the few high-profile cases to have come to trial so far since Italian authorities launched a tax avoidance crackdown.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have chosen not to know the gender of their first child before it is born, royal sources said.
William will be present at the birth of the baby, which is to be delivered at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in London.
The first public announcement that the birth is imminent will be made once Kate is in hospital and in the early stages of labour.
When the baby is born, Kate's parents and the Queen will be told before a statement is issued.
A formal declaration will then be driven to Buckingham Palace and placed on an easel. The same happened after Prince William's birth.
The public will be told the baby's gender, weight, and time of birth but it may be some time before William and Kate decide on a name.
Prince William intends to be present at the birth of his first child, which is due in mid-July.
His father, Prince Charles, was present at his birth in 1982, and, according to The Times, remarked: “It is rather a grown up thing I found, rather a shock to the system”.
The Duchess of Cambridge will give birth in the same hospital wing in which Prince William was born in 1982, ITV News understands.
The Princess of Wales gave birth to both her sons in the Lindo Wing of St. Mary's Hospital in Paddington, central London, and it is understood William's child will be born there too.
