Lord Alan Sugar was at the centre of a racism storm today after he uploaded an image of the Senegal World Cup squad likening them to beach sellers. The 71-year-old Apprentice host posted the image this morning and sparked fury from his followers who accused him of being racist. The tweet, posted at 10.39am, included an image of the Senegal squad on the pitch, with the words: 'I recognise some of these guys from the beach in Marbella. Multi tasking resourceful chaps.' Some 23 minutes later, the post was deleted - and Lord Sugar said: 'Just been reading the reaction to my funny tweet about the guy on the beach in Marbella . Seems it has been interpreted in the wrong way as offensive by a few people. Frankly I can’t see that I think it's funny. But I will pull it down if you insist.'

Dr David Rawaf (pictured, left) from Surrey faced being struck off after he accelerated at traffic lights and crashed, leaving a teenager paralysed, but has been researching ways to help her walk.

British glamour model, 28, reveals how prolific ISIS recruiter brainwashed her on Facebook before grooming her to move to Syria and become the 'next White Widow'
Glamour model Kimberley Miners, 29, (main picture) from London, claims she embarked on an online affair with British ISIS recruiter Naweed Hussain and almost ended up in Syria as his wife. Hussain’s fiancée was Britain's youngest female ISIS terrorist Safaa Boular, 18, who was the head of the UK's first all-female terror cell and planned a grenade and gun attack on the British Museum with the help of her mother and sister. Miss Miners, a former topless model, said she was groomed to become the next 'White Widow' and follow in the footsteps of Sally Jones, a British mother of one who was killed in a US airstrike on the convoy she was travelling with in June 2017. In stark contrast to the glamour shots of her past Miss Miners (right in 2016) posted a picture of herself in a full face veil at the height of her self-confessed obsession with Hussain and Islam (top right). But she was arrested by anti-terror police last year after they discovered correspondence between her and Hussain (left) which included a bomb-making manual. She said: ‘It's embarrassing now but I liked the attention. I'd been so lonely. Now I felt I finally belonged’.

Mr Scott-Hood's parents Susie and Perry said today: 'We are completely heartbroken by the loss of our only son, Harrison. He was the love of our life, a kind and beautiful young man and we were beyond broken by this news'.
Why HAS Britain given £1bn foreign aid to a brutal African regime now splashing out millions to sponsor Arsenal?
To his opponents Paul Kagame (left) is a butcher and a war criminal who runs a brutal one-party state. He was credited with ending the genocide (right, bones excavated from mass graves) that saw almost one million people die during a 100-day orgy of violence against his own Tutsi tribe and moderate Hutus by rival Hutu extremists. But according to a UN report, after the civil war he sent his men on a psychopathic pogrom against the Hutus. Now, the world will be hearing more of this dictator following the announcement that Arsenal, one of the world’s most famous football clubs, has struck a deal to market his country on their shirts (inset, Kagame with former Arsenal star Tony Adams) with global television audiences of hundreds of millions.

At least five people are injured as short-circuiting power drill battery causes explosion at Southgate Tube station in London forcing police to evacuate locals from their homes
Two people have been hospitalised after an explosion at Southgate Tube station in Enfield, North London. Police rushed to the scene just after 7pm last night as dozens fled in panic. The Metropolitan Police said they believed the cause of the blast to be the result of a ‘battery short circuit’. A spokesman for the Met told MailOnline the force was investigating what caused the battery - part of a power drill - to explode. Three people were treated for injuries with two taken to hospital. Witnesses described a strong smell of ‘burning rubber’. Student Haluk Oskan, 26, said: 'I was at Southgate station when this commotion started. I could smell burning and saw multiple people hurrying for the exits. The station staff were scurrying around inside and people were rushing out of the exit.’ The underground station (pictured), which is on the Piccadilly Line, has been completely closed off with nearby homes and restaurants evacuated while police investigate.

A football hero England can be proud of: How magnanimous, gentlemanly Harry Kane conjures up memories of Bobby Moore rather than his scandal-tainted predecessors as captain
Harry Kane (left during the ice-bath chat with Craig Mitch), who scored twice in the 2-1 win on Monday, handed all the credit to his team-mates, praising their ‘togetherness’ and the ‘great bond’ that had developed between them. Such magnanimity is fast becoming a hallmark of the admirable citizen Kane, who won’t turn 25 until July 28th, making him England’s youngest ever World Cup skipper. When it comes to romance, Harry is strictly a one-woman man. In his teens, he began dating Kate Goodland (top right his proposal, bottom right together at an awards ceremony), an apple-cheeked fitness instructor whom he has known since primary school, and says he could never countenance going out with a lingerie model or C-list celeb. On Instagram yesterday she dubbed Kane her ‘King’ and said, ‘Gutted Ivy and I can’t be there! But watching from home! We [love] you!’ She also shared an image of Ivy in an England shirt (inset) with Kane’s shirt number, 9, on the back, with the caption ‘Let’s go Daddy!! #worldcup2018’
Nikki Haley pulls the U.S. out of U.N. Human Rights Council calling it 'not worthy of its name' for 'chronic bias against Israel'
Donald Trump's administration pulled the United States out of the United Nations Human Rights Council Tuesday, attacking the body as 'not worthy of its name'. Nikki Haley, Trump's U.N. ambassador, launched the broadside at the State Department, flanked by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, where she accused it of 'chronic bias against Israel'. The announcement came just a day after the U.N. human rights chief, Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein, denounced the Trump administration for separating migrant children from their parents.
Judge says 'remorseless' faux German heiress who posed as billionaire's daughter to swindle $275,000 in bank loans, luxury trips and hotel stays is more concerned with 'who will play her in movie' than with her victims
Anna Sorokin, 26, appeared in court in Manhattan on Tuesday (left and right) on grand larceny charges. She was prepared to take a plea deal which would have seen her go to jail but only if it meant she would spend three years behind bars at most. It is not clear what deal prosecutors offered her but the prison term was not short enough and she turned it down. Now, she faces up to 15 years in prison. Sorokin posed as Anna Delvey, the heiress daughter of a fictitious billionaire Russian magnate and used the persona to dupe elite circles in Manhattan from around 2013 until January this year. She is seen inset in 2013 at a party.
'Mothers fight for their children!' Guatemalan asylum-seeker sues Trump administration for taking seven-year-old son and REFUSING to say where he is – and he screamed 'Mama! Mama!' in her only phone call from him
A Guatemalan asylum-seeker sued the Trump administration on Tuesday for 'forcibly' separating her from her seven-year-old son after they crossed the border in May. Beata Mariana de Jesus Mejia-Mejia was never indicted for illegally entering the country, but officials won't tell where her son Darwin is, according to her lawsuit filed Tuesday in Federal District Court in Washington, D.C. against 6 federal agencies and 10 senior officials. Mejia-Mejia's lawsuit is believed to be the first to challenge the government's removal of a specific child from a parent in the course of upholding federal immigration law. It opens up a new legal front in what has become an all-out battle with the White House on one side and a combination of Democratic lawmakers and immigration activists on the other. In the suit she describes a heart-wrenching scene when uniformed agents entered her holding cell and took away the boy, who screamed for his mother. Mejia-Mejia and her son entered the U.S. near San Luis, Arizona on approximately May 19 and turned herself in to U.S. Border Patrol agents, requesting asylum because of spousal abuse at the hands of a violently alcoholic husband who she says threatened to kill her.
