Mariah Carey's dramatic split from billionaire James Packer is getting very messy.

A sick joke! NHS moans about lack of funds but FAILS to collect hundreds of millions from health tourists because doctors don't think it's their duty to recover costs
Barely any improvement has been made on charging foreign patients for NHS treatment, despite a major crackdown four years ago. Most doctors aren't even aware they should be charging such patients - or don't think it's their duty. In one case a Nigerian woman who cost the taxpayer £145,000 when she had quintuplets on the NHS said she was never billed for the treatment. Bimbo Ayelabola (pictured in Britain, top, and back in Lago, bottom), 38, had to have a Caesarean section at Homerton Hospital, East London, after travelling to the UK while pregnant in 2011. And only this month a major teaching hospital, St George's in South London, admitted that 900 foreign pregnant women had given birth for free. Today's analysis by the National Audit Office highlights how hospitals are particularly bad at recovering costs from EU residents.

Heroic newsagent risks his life to save teenager chased into his shop by youth brandishing a knife... who filmed the entire attack
Terrifying CCTV footage has captured the moment a heroic newsagent risked his life to save a teenager who had been chased into his shop by knife-wielding thugs. Abbas Solak was working behind the counter at Bon Bon in Hoxton, Hackney, east London, when the boy sprinted in and tried to slam the door shut.

Four months on from Brexit, and it's official, the UK is booming! Economy GREW by 0.5% in the three months after historic vote despite dire warnings from Project Fear
