Kyle Walker joins Man City

Kyle Walker has become one of the most expensive defenders ever after joining Manchester City from Tottenham for an initial £45million.

The full-back, 27, could eventually cost City as much as £50million, with an additional £5million heading Spurs' way in add-ons if various clauses are met.

The full-back regions looked to be obvious areas of need for City boss Pep Guardiola in the transfer window and Walker is the first to arrive for an eye-watering sum. Spurs are notoriously tough negotiators and, after City missed out on Dani Alves to Paris St Germain, the north London club's hand was strengthened in the discussions. Walker has cost far more than Alves did when he moved to Barcelona in 2008 for a fee that eventually reached around £30million.

British royalty met pop royalty on Thursday evening as Prince Harry joined namesake Harry Styles at the world premiere of Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk.

The fifth in line to the throne walked the red carpet alongside three army veterans who served in Dunkirk, Kosovo and Afghanistan respectively.

Ahead of the premiere, Harry hosted a reception at Kensington Palace for Dunkirk veterans highlighting the lasting impacts of war on the mental health of service men and women.

Starring former One Direction member Styles, the film tells the story of the chaotic rescue of Allied soldiers during the Second World War.

Style's co-stars in the film including Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy and Mark Rylance, will also be in attendance at the Odeon in Leicester Square, as well as director Nolan.

Are middle class kids being groomed to carry drugs?

Children and young people from middle class families are in danger of being groomed by urban criminal gangs to sell drugs in county towns, according to a new report.

Today's report from the All Party Parliamentary Group on Runaway and Missing Children and Adults follows the revelation from the National Crime Agency last year that 80 per cent of police areas are now reporting exploitation of children by criminal gangs.

The NCA said that using children in so called county lines operations - the supply of class A drugs from Urban areas to county towns - has spread out from London gangs to the rest of the country, including Greater Manchester and Liverpool. The way children and young people are groomed for criminal exploitation and drug running is very similar to that of sexual exploitation. Ann Coffey is the Labour Mp for Stockport.
