    Theresa May’s Brexit endgame is painful — but she’s not the only EU leader suffering

    Theresa May’s endgame is so painful to watch because it combines the grave consequences of failed Brexit negotiations with the improbable comedy of operetta. Shortly after, we were informed that “key issues remain” and Raab had a day-return ticket home. Since then an exhausted Prime Minister has trundled to the Commons (again) to announce with emphasis that she will not sign up to an interpretation of the “backstop” on the Irish border that she had effectively already agreed to in her bid to sell the Chequers plan in the summer.

    Death toll from Florida hurricane at least 29, hundreds missing

    The death toll from Hurricane Michael rose to at least 29 on Tuesday as crews scoured debris for hundreds of people reported missing in the Florida Panhandle, nearly a week after the storm flattened whole communities. Michael slammed into the northwest coastal strip of Florida last Wednesday with top sustained winds of 155 miles per hour (250 km per hour), unleashing a surge of seawater that demolished homes. One of the most powerful storms ever to hit the continental United States, it has killed 20 people in the Florida Panhandle, five in Virginia, three in North Carolina and one in Georgia, according to a Reuters tally of official reports.

    Chelsea defender Marcos Alonso on the verge of signing contract extension

    Marcos Alonso has revealed he is set to sign a contract extension with Chelsea "in the coming days". Alonso became a mainstay under former coach Antonio Conte as a wing-back in a 3-4-3 formation and he has also impressed this season when slotting into new Maurizio Sarri's favoured 4-3-3 setup as a left-back. Now the Spain international, who played the full 90 minutes in the 3-2 Nations League defeat to England on Monday, says he is close to extending his stay at Stamford Bridge.

    Sixteen months after the Grenfell Tower fire, news of an independent study finding “huge concentrations” of potentially carcinogenic toxins in the soil and dust up to a mile away from the building has caused significant distress to survivors, local residents and the bereaved. “This has been a concern that Grenfell United have raised time and time again,” said the chairwoman of the survivors’ group, Natasha Elcock, in a letter to ministers. At a meeting on Monday evening, Public Health England (PHE) officials joined Kensington and Chelsea council (RBKC) in an unscheduled visit to reassure residents that health risks from contaminants remained low.
