Don't mess with the Met! The terrifying machine-gun toting anti-terror police who are

Anti-terror police, pictured, guarded Benjamin Netanyahu as he visited Downing Street to discuss working together to defeat terror threats in the Middle East in London today. Netanyahu met David Cameron, middle, to ask for his cooperation in fighting the threat of 'militant Islam' that is shaking Israel and the surrounding region to the core, with rogue Islamic groups ceasing vast swathes of Iraq and Afghanistan. Riding in a fleet of blacked-out Range Rovers, the anti-terror police joined a huge entourage of security for the controversial political figure as he left Downing Street after talks. His visit has already caused controversy, with police being forced to separate rival protestors outside Downing Street when fights broke out between the pro-Palestine and pro-Israel lobbies yesterday. The Israeli Prime Minister has asked for Britain's cooperation to 'turn back the tide of militant Islam', with the ongoing threat from Islamic State affecting both nations. He asked that Britain and Israel pool intelligence to fight that threat, which is destabilising the region.

Victory! Parking bosses will refund ALL tickets handed out by dodgy wardens who scammed motorists by changing the times on photos to fine legally parked cars

Drivers say timings on photos have been doctored so legally parked cars get fined

A parking company now under investigation for fraud has agreed to refund all penalty tickets issued by implicated staff after MailOnline exposed them for doctoring photo times to issue undeserved fines. Dozens of drivers have contacted MailOnline after being stung with fines in car parks run by UK Parking Control - which is responsible for supermarkets, retail centres and even NHS car parks around the country - despite having left the site well within the allotted time. When they have approached the firm for photographic evidence, the drivers have been sent images that show their vehicle in the car park at a time it was not there. One of the drivers affected was Neil Horton, who claims he was given a ticket after parking his car in a UKPC site for just 15 minutes - despite the car park providing 90 minutes for free. When he received photographic evidence over the fine, the pictures suggested he had left his vehicle at the site in Newcastle-under-Lyme for almost two hours. But Mr Horton is convinced the images were in fact taken at the same time - because they both feature the same car in the background with its boot open. UKPC has now admitted that members of staff - who have since left the firm - exploited a 'loophole' in the firm's photograph system. Meanwhile, the British Parking Association -  which vowed to issue a 'scheme of sanctions' if the 'tampering' allegations are proved - urged motorists to launch appeals against their parking tickets. It means thousands of fines issued by the firm - which has 1,400 sites and 200 employees nationwide - could be in dispute across the country.
