England's most expensive goalkeeper made history once more last night as Jordan Pickford (pictured, centre) secured his side's place in the quarter finals as the Three Lions won their first ever World Cup penalty shoot-out against Colombia. Tickets for the World Cup fixture are selling for almost £700 as England face Sweden in Samara, with livefootballtickets.com flogging seats for about 15 times the lowest official price of £45. England layers (top-left and bottom-left) celebrated as Pickford's girlfriend Megan - with whom he has been since they were teenagers - looked on in apprehension from the Moscow stands (top-right). University of Sunderland graduate Megan has been with Jordan ever since and they now live together in Cheshire's 'Golden Triangle'. As her boyfriend made a crucial save against Bacca, Megan couldn't hold back her jubilation (bottom-right). Pickford, who built his reputation playing for Sunderland, now earns £90,000 a week at Everton and is Britain's most expensive ever keeper. Pubs were full to the brim and streets were empty in across England tonight as a predicted 40 million pints were downed as England beat the South American side.

Major incident is declared amid fears two people were exposed to an unknown substance

A major incident has been declared in Wiltshire after it was suspected two people were exposed to an unknown substance in Amesbury.

How they will get those terrified Thai boys out of there

The initial euphoria of finding 12 missing teenagers and their coach alive after ten days lost inside the flooded Tham Luang Nang Non cave labyrinth was starting to fade yesterday. For the choice now facing the authorities in northern Thailand's Chiang Rai district is a stark one. Should they keep these disoriented and terrified boys in their subterranean prison for up to four months until the water level subsides? Or should they try to guide them out now? The imminent arrival of monsoons in the days ahead seemed to be nudging the authorities towards the latter option yesterday. Though the rescue teams have deployed powerful pumps to extract millions of gallons of water in recent days, there are fears that levels may be about to rise again. 'We're worried about the rain that's been forecast,' Anupong Paojinda, the interior minister, told reporters last night.

The two highly experienced British volunteer divers who helped to find the trapped boys and their coach have a history of difficult rescues around the world.

A football coach and 12 'rake thin' young players (top right) remain trapped in the Thamg Luang cave network in northern Thailand as experts desperately try to come up with a plan to rescue them. There are fears fresh rainfall over the next few days could add to flooding in the caves (shown in the graphic) - meaning the boys, who cannot swim, may have to wait until the end of monsoon season in October before they can be brought to safety. If that does happen, two of Thailand's Navy doctors have already volunteered to stay in the underground chamber for as long as it takes in what is being described as a 'huge sacrifice'. A first meal of rice and pork - packaged up in sealed portions - is being prepared for the youngsters, who have already been given energy gels and paracetamol. Right: Rescuers at the scene.

'I couldn't be prouder of England': Prince William leads a tidal wave of online tributes

You have well and truly earned your place in the final eight of the #worldcup and you should know the whole country is right behind you for Saturday! Come on England!'

OLIVER HOLT IN MOSCOW: Just when they were in danger of living up to their own cliche in major tournaments and plucking defeat from the jaws of victory, losing on penalties yet again, England defied.

Prince Charles's friend describes Meghan Markle's dad as 'huge lump'

After Kensington Palace confirmed that Prince Harry had started courting Suits actress Meghan Markle, the Prince issued an impassioned statement condemning the Press for its so-called 'abuse' of his girlfriend who is now is wife.

In North London, a 15-year-old boy spent eight weeks in hospital because of his 'all-consuming' gaming addiction, including Fortnite, which left him unable to go to school for a year and needing vitamin D tablets because of a lack of sunlight. Amanda Snow (right, with her son Luke) says the game has turned him into a nightmare. Roz Page (pictured top left, with her kids) was horrified when her son Matthew, ten, spent £140 on extras in the game.

Ike's children never reacted, but my oldest son, Craig, was a very emotional kid. He'd always look down in sadness. 'One day when Ike was fighting me, Craig knocked on the door and said, "Mother, are you all right?" 'I thought, "Oh, please, don't beat me at home." I didn't want my children to hear.'
