'Embarrassing' footage of Thailand's king wearing a crop top and showing his tattoos while strolling through a shopping centre have prompted authorities to threaten legal action against Facebook. The video of King Maha Vajiralongkorn was widely shared on the social network, but Thai authorities have threatened to press charges if it is still available at 10am tomorrow. The video shows the monarch, who came to power last year following the death of his father, King Bhumibol Adulyadej, with a number of tattoos on his arms, stomach, and back. Under strict Thai laws, people can be jailed for up to 15 years for sharing material which is insulting to the monarchy. An international watchdog said more than 100 people have been arrested under the country's draconian lèse-majesté laws.

And Laura Whitmore, 32, proved that their friendship remains as tight as ever, when she was spotted heading back to her London hotel with the 31-year-old after a night of partying up a storm at the TV BAFTA Awards.

Kim Jong-un, who personally oversaw the launch, claimed the projectile was capable of carrying a 'heavy nuclear warhead' and could range the mainland United States.

The 30 seconds that sentenced dinosaurs to their doom: New BBC documentary reveals the moment an asteroid NINE MILES long hit earth and wiped out an entire species

Scientists have studied the site where the asteroid hit approximately 66 million years ago in the Gulf of Mexico. This chance encounter between an asteroid and a patch of sulfur-rich rock plunged the earth into a global winter as the vaporised sulfur cloud reflected sunlight away from the earth causing dramatic cooling, dwindling food sources and ultimately leading to the death of dinosaurs. The asteroid's impact was so huge that the blast led to the extermination of three quarters of all life on Earth, including most of the dinosaurs. But this chance event allowed smaller mammals - and ultimately humans - the chance to thrive.

The authorities started a search operation after noticing an unusual earth movement in the prison of Reynosa, located in the north-eastern Mexican state of Tamaulipas and with the help of new technologies, they found the unfinished tunnel in a wooden house near the jail. The tunnel entrance was covered with wooden boards and bricks to avoid being discovered. Francisco Garcia Cabeza de Vaca, the Governor of the state of Tamaulipas, said on his Twitter profile that it is believed that prisoners would have escaped from prison using this tunnel, which is 16 feet deep, 45 feet long and 4 feet wide. The Public Security Secretariat said that after the tunnel was discovered, there was a special police operation to regain control of the situation. They transferred four prisoners who were found to have dug the tunnel, reports said.

Baby orphaned when mother and father killed in house fire

Blaise Alvares, 33, and Sharon Soares, 30, both died in hospital from injuries suffered in the blaze that ripped through their home in Swindon, Wiltshire. Their baby daughter Brooke survived the incident last November, as did three other adults who were also living in the three-bedroom mid-terrace house. Wiltshire and Swindon Coroner's Court heard the house, which was shared by two separate families, did not have any working smoke alarms. Although the property on Manchester Road had central heating, neither family used it as it was too expensive to run and instead they relied on portable heaters. Mr Alvares and his wife were rescued by firefighters wearing breathing apparatus. Mrs Soares, a Bahrain-born college administrator, died in hospital three days after the incident from carbon monoxide poisoning. Her Indian-born husband, an engineer, died two days before Christmas from complications caused by his serious burns.

Shocking video shows the moment a dog falls out of a moving car and gets DRAGGED by its leash along a motorway 

The unsuspecting canine can be seen leaning out of the window, clearly enjoying the wind in his ears and sniffing the air.

Dance with me baby! Watch hilarious moment a little girl waits for the beat to drop as she grooves in her car seat

The tiny toddler picks out the beat to Uptown Funk with the poise and confidence of a concert-seasoned music aficionado.The adorable little American girl first picks out the more subtle beats to the hit song. And then she waits. She looks at the camera and smiles in anticipation. And when the beat drops for the catchy chorus she drops some serious moves.

She then grooves in her seat and nods and shakes her head to the music.

Now that's a view! Slackliners defy gravity - and common sense - to smash world record with 750 metre tightrope trek across Italian lake

Samuel Volery from Switzerland, Tijmen Van Dieren from Holland and Lukas Irmler from Germany all broke the astonishing record - as they elegantly balanced above the water with ease. They even juggled as they balanced in the middle of the narrow slackline. The three men all took turns to walk the line - surrounded by the breathtaking views of Kalterer See Lake in South Tyrol, Italy. Encircled by mountain peaks and the glistening sun - the slackliners can be seen walking a whopping 750 metres without falling. It took Timjen one hour, Samuel 45 minutes, and Lukas 25 minutes to smash a very challenging world record. The impressive slackliners look relaxed yet are psychically on edge as they look down at their bare feet high above the luminous turquoise water.
