Audio: RAF pilot 'confronts Latvian plane'

Aviation enthusiasts EGXWinfo Group have posted an audio clip online, which they claim to be a recording of an RAF pilot trying to make contact with the Latvian plane.

In it, the pilot warns that the plane will be shot down if it does not follow his instructions.

The Ministry of Defence refused to confirm or deny whether the audio was genuine.

Man arrested after woman's body found after fire

A 26-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a woman's body was found at the scene of a vehicle fire in Dartford.

Kent Police is treating the death of a woman, who police believe to be from the local area, as an isolated, targeted attack in which the offender and the victim knew each other.

There is nothing to suggest members of the public are in danger.

If anyone has any information about the fire in Rowhill Road, Dartford in the early hours of Saturday, 18th October, they are urged to contact Kent Police on 101 or to call Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

How the Dartford Crossing will look with automated tolls

Here's what the Dartford Crossing will look like when the tolls disappear later this year. From October, ANPR technology will be used to charge drivers - similar to the way the London Congestion charge works.

Driver will also be able to pay online, at selected shops or by phone. The crossing will still be free to use between 10pm and 6am.
