Residents of Bledington, Gloucestershire, were shocked to find they had DNA from 18 different places in the world, after testing was done by AncestryDNA on 120 of the villagers.

Others even found out they were related to each other, as third or fourth cousins. Circled, Ann Newton, who found out she was only 37 per cent British and 35 per cent of her genetic make-up was from Europe West. Next to her, husband Mick who found he is Irish and Scandinavian as well as British. Pictured main, Bledington was chosen because of its size and community spirit and 120 people took part in the study, the first of its kind. Right, villagers in the idyllic location, shown inset right, found out they on average only had around 43 per cent British DNA, with much of their genetic make-up coming from as far away as south Asia and north Africa.

Supermarkets 'to blame for eggs crisis': Food boss accuses chains of double standards for using cheap foreign ingredients in sandwiches and mayonnaise but selling boxes of eggs from Britain
Thousands of salads and sandwiches are being taken off store shelves in a tainted eggs scare. Four big supermarkets are withdrawing the products on the orders of the Food Standards Agency. The watchdog had claimed only 21,000 of the danger eggs had been imported from Europe. It insisted there was no health risk and refused to name the affected retailers. Yesterday however it admitted the true figure was much higher - potentially 700,000 - and confirmed the eggs had been used by Waitrose, Sainsbury's, Morrisons and Asda. Contaminated with pesticide, the eggs went to factories making sandwich fillings, sandwiches, salad bowls and pots containing boiled eggs. Ian Jones, chairman of British Lion eggs, said: 'The major retailers are operating to double standards when it comes to eggs.' Inset, Mr Jones, bottom right and left, examples of the thousands of egg products that are being taken off shelves by leading supermarkets.
My last son's flying the nest and oh, the hole it's left in my heart. But even worse, says OLIVIA FANE, is the realisation no child can love their mother the way she loves them
I'm preparing for my two youngest sons to leave home next month. Nineteen-year-old Oscar will be heading west, without a backwards glance, to Bristol University. Joe, 22, will be nonchalantly disappearing up the M1 to live and work 200 miles away in Leeds. Children simply don't realise how loved they are. This is a painful fact of which I am fast becoming aware. Perhaps they have to wait until they are parents themselves, with their own children to love. Then they will understand. Pictured: Olivia with Joe, left; Tom, Will and Ben, inset; Olivia with Ben, Joe and Oscar, top right; and all the boys, bottom right.
Why Corfu is calling time on British louts: Once a holiday island loved by families, its hotspots have been overrun by drunks. Now locals are cracking down and vowing to take it back upmarket
Kavos, on the southern tip of Corfu, is well known as a destination for young people wanting to get off their heads - and at rock-bottom prices, with pictures taking in the last week showing tourists, mostly Brits, taking over the main strip and vomiting in the street. But change is coming to Kavos. Local people - led by an organisation called the Kavos Cultural Association - are leading a backlash against the drunken British youth who now dominate life in the resort. The protest coincides with a crackdown by the police on the town's clubbing culture, with curfews on loud music and time being called on late-night drinking. It's not that the residents of Kavos are against tourism in general - far from it. They hope for the return of an older, quieter form of tourist - Brits with money to spend and a very different idea of nightlife.

The conjoined twin sisters snatched at birth from their mother and subjected to cruel medical 'experiments': One turned into a psychopath, the other a gentle soul who longed for a normal life
They were the world's oldest living conjoined twins at the time of their death in 2003 aged 53. Snatched from their mother following their birth, Masha and Dasha Krivoshlyopova were subjected to a variety of cruel medical 'experiments' by Stalin's Soviet medical authorities. The Russian girls shared a blood system but had separate nervous systems - so were seen as ideal subjects for research. Treated as medical guinea pigs they were burnt, frozen, starved, electrocuted, kept forcibly awake and injected with radioactive and other toxic substances in the name of 'science'. The twins were institutionalised for much of their lives but their horrific story has now been revealed in full for the first time by journalist Juliet Butler who has also spoken to MailOnline. Masha was a cruel, domineering 'psychopath' who was 'emotionally abusive' to her caring, empath sister Dasha who remained gentle and kind and longed for a normal life. When Masha died in 2003, Dasha refused to have surgery to separate her from her sister and subsequently died from blood poisoning from the toxins of her sister's decomposing body
How I was branded a racist - for trying to save girls from their vile abusers: Former MP ANN CRYER on the accusations she has faced after daring to say these are culturally-routed crimes
Former Labour MP Ann Cryer admits she felt huge frustration after reading of the convictions of 18 people for grooming and rape in Newcastle, because of the reluctance to accept their race.

But the accusations of racism have not stopped her working to highlight the problems and doing what she knows is right. Left, Ann Cryer, right, the BBC drama Three Girls, about the Rochdale grooming scandal.

Movie that made the world fall in love with ELVIS: 40 years after he died, a very revealing insight into the star's screen debut Love Me Tender
There had never been a star with a trajectory like Elvis Presley's before and Hollywood took note, eager to cash in on the boy wonder before his popularity waned.

But it wouldn't have been called Love Me Tender, and it wouldn't have had that song in it - or, for that matter, any other songs. That being so, in all probability, neither you nor I would ever have heard of it.
