Labour MP Fiona Onasanya charged with perverting course of justice

Labour MP Fiona Onasanya (pictured with Jeremy Corbyn) has been charged with two counts of perverting the course of justice. The Peterborough MP, who won the key marginal seat in 2017, was charged over allegedly lying about who was behind the wheel of a speeding vehicle in two separate incidents in Cambridgeshire last year. Prosecutors say Ms Onasanya conspired with her younger brother Festus to avoid penalty points, once when she was driving and once when he was behind the wheel, and passed them to a third party. She is alleged to have been behind the wheel of a speeding vehicle on July 24 last year but together with her brother Festus Onasanya told the authorities someone else was driving. The second similar count relates to an incident on August 23 when her brother was alleged to have been driving but she told authorities that a third party had been driving. Festus, 33, a singer from Cambridge, also faces a third charge of perverting the course of justice.

UK weather: Aerial images reveal the impact of UK's scorching sun

It's been Britain's driest start to summer in modern records, leaving farmers with parched crops and water companies enforcing hosepipe bans. And these alarming photographs show how Britain's green land is turning yellow as the country endures its longest heatwave since 1976, which has seen several places have 55 consecutive dry days since the start of June. Old Harry Rocks on the Isle of Purbeck in Dorset (pictured) are known for the beautiful contrast between the white chalk cliffs and the green grass above, but new photographs show how the landscape is now bone dry. Local photographer Andy Lyons took the latest pictures, standing in the same spot with his camera drone as he had done a year ago when the clifftop and rolling hills beyond were bright green. But experts say despite its current state, grass is incredibly resilient and will bounce back.

Shoppers across the UK have taken to Twitter to vent their frustration, reporting that fans have sold out in areas including Chelmsford, Leeds, Reading and Kent as the heatwave continues.

Doctor 'would have been quizzed for rape' and 'horrific' abuse

Child patients sent to Aston Hall Hospital in Derbyshire (right) between the 1950s and 1970s have claimed they were taken to a secluded room, drugged and sexually abused by Kenneth Milner (left). The psychiatrist and hospital chief superintendent is alleged to have injected children with the truth serum sodium amytal (inset) before sexually abusing them, after after putting them in straitjackets. Today Derbyshire Police said in a report: 'There would have been sufficient evidence to justify interviewing Dr Milner under caution in relation to a number of potential offences, namely rape, indecent assault, child cruelty and assault.' So far 115 people have come forward to speak to the investigation team and police have recorded 65 crimes including physical and sexual abuse. However, the number of victims could be much higher after Milner spent 28 years at the helm of the 100-capacity hospital. Lawyers for 47 patients sent to the hospital in the 1960s and 1970s said the 'horrific treatment' had 'undoubtedly caused permanent, damaging effects'.

Scientists discover a 12-mile lake hidden on Mars, fuelling the possibility of life on the

A hidden lake of liquid water (circled bottom right) has been found on Mars (left) for the first time in a landmark discovery that bolsters the possibility of life on the red planet. The reservoir, which spans 12 miles (20km) and is buried a mile (1.6km) underground near a patch of ice on the planet's pole (top right), was uncovered by scientists using radar to probe the planet's icy south pole. The discovery is the first evidence of a lake of liquid water on Mars that still exists today - an environment scientists believe is ideal for the growth of microbial life. Experts said the 'stunning' find could provide us with the first evidence of life outside of Earth, and will serve as a key target for future missions to the red planet. Warwick Holmes, an aerospace engineer at the University of Sydney, said future spacecraft missions to Mars will be working 'very hard' to design methods to sample the newly discovered lake. Researchers used the probe's Mars Advanced Radar for Subsurface and Ionosphere Sounding (Marsis) instrument to explore the planet's polar ice caps.

Starting in the 1940s, Scotty Bowers (pictured main and inset right with friends in his youth) was right at the center of 'the Gomorrah of Hollywood'. He says he either slept with or set up - or both - everyone from Lana Turner and Ava Gardner to Cary Grant... even Wallis Simpson and the abdicated King of England, Edward VIII (pictured clockwise from top right). He says he secured about 150 women over 50 years for Katharine Hepburn, labeling her a closet lesbian whose relationship with Spencer Tracy was for show - with Scotty insisting the heartthrob married actor was also actually gay (and he had sleepovers with him, too). Scotty's exploits are laid bare in a new documentary, Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood, which premieres this month. The film follows him around LA as he, now 95, recounts memories from his heyday as a 'trick' and facilitator for decades in Hollywood, showing off old pictures as well as reminiscing with some of the men he recruited or socialized with.

Harbour Rise near Bleak House up for sale for £2.25million

Charles Dickens holidayed at Bleak House in Broadstairs, Kent (pictured main, right) every summer for almost two decades, and penned David Copperfield there.

But despite its prominent position in the popular seaside town, it is described by estate agents as a 'hidden gem', concealed behind walls and tall hedges. The historic property with stunning sea views was once a row of tiny fishermen's cottages and a stable block where they kept horses that used to pull boats up onto the shore in the 17th century.
