Castle in Kent used to advertise Leeds holiday

The airline advertised the “glittering nightlife” in Leeds with a picture of Leeds Castle in Kent and e-mailed it as an 'Autumn deal' to customers.

People were quick to pick up on the blunder on Twitter.

Investigation into possible contaminated fuel

An urgent investigation is underway tonight after drivers in the south have been filling up their cars with potentially contaminated diesel. Dozens of motorists have become victims, but it's feared that number could run into the hundreds over the coming days.

It's believed all the drivers topped up their tanks at the Tesco filling station in Branksome in Poole. Moments later their engines became sluggish, or broke-down all together.

Tesco says it will compensate drivers if it IS its fault. Martin Dowse reports.
