North Korean dictator's brother at Eric Clapton gig

Footage has appeared online apparently showing the older brother of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un at an Eric Clapton gig at London's Albert Hall.

This YouTube clip, which appears to be shot by NK News, shows Mr Kim's brother Kim Jong-chul. He is known to have attended concerts by Eric Clapton in the past and is thought to have attended two at the Albert Hall recently.

Eric Clapton is currently most of the way through a 10-day residency at the venue which finishes tomorrow evening.

An official report into the deaths of four British sailors in the Atlantic says the accident may have been caused by structural weakening of the vessel, caused by previous groundings and repairs.

The four men lost in the May 2014 disaster were captain Andrew Bridge, 22, from Farnham, Surrey, and crew members James Male, 22, from Southampton; Steve Warren, 52, from Bridgwater, Somerset; and Paul Goslin, 56, from West Camel, Somerset. They had been taking part in a regatta in Antigua and were sailing back to Southampton when their vessel capsized approximately 720 miles east-south-east of Nova Scotia in Canada on May 16.

One or more keel bolts on the yacht may have deteriorated and it was "probable that the crew were fatigued and their performance was impaired accordingly", the Marine Accident Investigation Branch report also said. But MAIB concluded: "In the absence of survivors and material evidence, the causes of the accident remain a matter of some speculation."
