Life sentence for 'murder plot' to kill a US serviceman overturned.

Junead Khan has had a life sentence for a 'murder plot' reduced on appeal

A Luton delivery driver who was jailed for planning to murder a US serviceman has had his life sentence overturned.

Junead Khan, who is 25, was jailed in May this year over planning a terror attack on a base in East Anglia believed to be RAF Lakenheath and was sentenced to life in prison.

But Lord Chief Justice Lord Thomas has now overturned the sentence saying the evidence didn't support the claims he was intending to carry it out.

Instead the judge imposed a 20-year term. An appeal by Khan's uncle Shazib Khan against his sentence for a preparation for a terrorism offence was dismissed.

Crowd funding campaign for missing Corrie exceeds target in two days

Corrie McKeague

A crowdfunding campaign to hire a private investigator to search for missing RAF serviceman Corrie McKeague has exceeded its £20,000 target in less than two days.

23-year-old Corrie was last seen in the early hours of 24 September in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

He was reported missing when he failed to turn up at his base, RAF Honington, 10 miles from the town.

A JustGiving page was set up later by Cheryl Hickman, who runs the Suffolk hotel where Mrs Urquhart has been staying since her son went missing.

The fundraising page said donations would be used to fund the appointment of a private investigator and a data analyst to go through the information gathered.

Mr McKeague's grandparents had earlier pledged a "five-figure reward" for information leading to his safe return.

Bird flu: farmers told to keep poultry indoors


The Government has ordered that all poultry farmers across the region keep their birds inside to protect against a dangerous strain of bird flu that's sweeping across Europe.

As yet the strain of the avian flu hasn't been found in the UK, but the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs said the steps should be followed until the New Year as a precaution.

It's a type of highly pathogenic avian flu, H5N8, that has been found in dead wild birds.

Many of the turkeys, ducks and chickens have already been processed for Christmas so it shouldn't affected the supply of birds for Yuletide meals.

Public Health England said the threat to humans from the bird flu strain remains very low.
