According to reports Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has agreed a settlement with the club after 29 years.

Giggs, 42, had a year left on his contract as assistant manager but new boss Jose Mourinho is expected to give Rui Faria that role.

Unable to reach an agreement over another possible position at the club, it is believed Giggs, who made a record 963 appearances for United, has decided to move on.

Ryan Giggs joined the Manchester United academy on his 14th birthday in 1988 and turned professional aged just 17.

The Wales-born winger won a record 13 league titles, two European Cups, four FA Cups and four League Cups to become the most decorated British player of all time.

It appears that these poor puppies have just been abandoned in a box.

The five puppies appear healthy, but are so young and could have died if they had not been found. We don’t know how long they had been there.

The five puppies consist of two brindle females, two brindle males and one grey male.

Children's charity the NSPCC says it is of 'grave concern' that the IPCC believes claims of abuse were not properly investigated and lines of enquiry which could have brought him to justice earlier were not pursued.

“Serious questions have long been raised about how the police investigations into Watkins’ abuse of children were handled from the moment allegations were made.

“We hope that the misconduct proceedings are concluded swiftly so the IPCC’s full findings into how police investigated Watkins’ abhorrent crimes can be made public.

“It’s an incredibly difficult step to report child abuse so it’s imperative that when people do speak out, they have the upmost confidence that what they are reporting will be acted upon immediately.”

Nation falls silent in Battle of the Somme remembrance

The nation has fallen silent to honour the thousands of soldiers who died in the Battle of the Somme 100 years ago.

The battle was the bloodiest day in British military history, with 60,000 soldiers killed on the first day alone.

Ceremonies were held across the country, with a two-minute silence ending at 7.30am - the time when British, Commonwealth and French forces went 'over the top' in northern France.

In London, people lined Parliament Square to pay tribute, with the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery manning three guns which were fired every four seconds for 100 seconds to mark the silence.

The battle lasted for 141 days.
