Rudy Giuliani, Donald Trump’s personal lawyer and former New York mayor, has been caught in a compromising situation with a young actress while unsuspectingly being filmed for the latest Borat film. Mr Giuliani was invited to a hotel in Manhattan in July by a member of comedian and director Sacha Baron Cohen’s team posing as a Russian reporter who said she wanted to talk about the president’s coronavirus handling. The journalist, played by Bulgarian actress Maria Bakalova, 24, starts off by discussing the virus and where it might have started with Mr Giuliani, 76. “Not with a bat,” Mr Giuliani says. “Have you ever eaten a bat?” he asks the reporter, who gets him to agree to try one. She tells him she is nervous, to which he replies: “I’ll relax you, you want me to ask you a question?” After they stop filming, she then invites the two-term mayor into the bedroom next door for a drink.
Health Secretary Matt Hancock made the announcement in parliament, as he warned it would be "catastrophic" not to act and let COVID-19 "unleash its full force".

A ‘selfless and brave’ church warden was beaten to death as he tried to stop another shopper from being stabbed, a court heard. John Rees, 88, had left his wife Eunice, 87, in their car while he went inside a village Co-op to pick up essentials in May. But he was stabbed in the face by mum-of-one Zara Anne Radcliffe, 30, when he found her attacking a nurse with a knife. Brave Mr Rees saved nurse Gaynor Saurin when he tried to tackle Radcliffe. But he was tragically stabbed himself - before Radcliffe then attacked him with a glass bottle and a fire extinguisher. Mr Rees died inside the Co-op store and three other shoppers were injured in the frenzied attack in Penygraig in the Rhondda, South Wales. Prosecutor Michael Jones QC described Mr Rees's efforts to stop Radcliffe as "A selfless and brave act which cost him his life." He added: "Another customer, Lisa Way, attempted to talk to the defendant but she was attacked and injured by the knife. "The defendant focused on Mr Rees and repeatedly attacked him with a glass wine bottle and a fire extinguisher as he laid on the floor." Church warden Mr Rees was described as "the very definition of a good man, extremely respected and liked in the community" by his family. His cause of death was recorded as severe blunt trauma to the face including multiple facial fractures. Radcliffe admitted manslaughter by diminished responsibility over the attack which happened in May. On Wednesday, she was sentenced to indefinite hospital orders under sections 37 and 41 of the Mental Health Act by a judge at Merthyr Crown Court after pleading guilty to the manslaughter by diminished responsibility.
I've always been somewhat of a gambler. In fairness, this is not entirely my fault: I was born in Las Vegas, and thereby entered into this world with an inherent propensity for all things high stakes. In that sense, it doesn't feel too off base that I left my latest haircut up to chance. Let me explain. After doing absolutely nothing with my hair but allowing it to live, unperturbed, atop my head for nine-plus (!) months, my ends were starting to look long, dry, and drab. Meanwhile, I was reporting on the most-requested hairstyles following salon reopenings amid the coronavirus pandemic - all of which were striking and chic (and the polar opposite of my own look). Itching for change but not a clue what I wanted, I booked an appointment with Robert Sherman, the lead stylist at the Frederic Fekkai Salon in NYC, with an idea: what if I let him, based on his expertise and the season's biggest trends, determine the fate of my next haircut? It would be like letting your partner decide which restaurant to take you to for your birthday. "I don't know, surprise me!" When I walked into the salon, I laid out all my cards on the table. In an attempt to alleviate any pressure to run through the exhaustive list of haircuts out there, I had narrowed it down to three of the coolest styles I've seen of late for him to choose from: the modern shag, the A-line bob, and the textured clavicut. Each one would require I chop off at least five inches of hair, if not more, but would be easy enough to style according to my low-maintenance lifestyle. Then, it was time to roll the dice. The cut he would ultimately decide on was merely the luck of the draw.

The World Bank says richer countries, with the exception of Great Britain, are not stepping up to help poorer countries in the face of the pandemic. The World Bank's managing director of operations, Axel van Trotsenburg, said that the contributions from higher-income governments have been "flat or declining", a marked difference from what happened during the 2009-2010 financial crisis. "With the notable exception of the UK, which has been an absolute leader, the contributions by governments have been much more flat or declining," he told The Telegraph. "We saw the greatest generosity ever... during the depths of the financial crisis. We need that again. We cannot think that we can solve the problem in OECD countries alone. If you leave the poor countries out, it will not solve this problem. "We have to look at the human face of this crisis, then realise that it would be a very good investment indeed if we could continue supporting these countries during this difficult time," he added. The UK, the world's sixth biggest economy in 2019, pledged $3.8bn to the world's poorest countries via the World Bank's International Development Asosciation (IDA), in April this year, eclipsing Japan, the United States and France. The World Bank's financial reserves come from several sources - from funds raised in the financial markets, earnings on its investments, fees paid in by member countries, contributions made by members and from the borrowing countries themselves, when they pay back their loans. However, the World Bank itself has also faced criticism for the speed of its response, with a paper from the US-based Center for Global Development (CGD) last week suggesting that the organisation is not responding quickly or dramatically enough to the scale of the crisis caused by Covid-19. The World Bank has pledged up to $160bn to client countries, starting quickly in spring this year. But CGD said that, for example, while lending has accelerated, with loan commitments up 118 per cent year on year, actual disbursements - payments of money to the countries themselves - has only increased by 31 per cent.
Timothy Brehmer, a police constable, is accused of murdering Claire Parry in a car park in West Parley, Dorset, on 9 May. The 41-year-old is alleged to have strangled the mother-of-two after she sent a text message to his wife revealing he had been having an affair. The defendant told Salisbury Crown Court he agreed to meet Mrs Parry, a nurse, after she had been "relentlessly" sending him messages for the previous two days.
The new travel rules for Tiers 1, 2 and 3 Latest local lockdown rules for Wales What if Covid-19 spoils my holiday? Key questions answered The countries you can (feasibly) visit right now Sign up to the Telegraph Travel newsletter Germany has classified the whole of the UK as ‘high risk’, meaning all arrivals must quarantine for 14 days, show evidence of a negative Covid test, or take a test on arrival. The German embassy said negative results should be no older than 48 hours, or else travellers can undergo testing at several major airports including Munich and Frankfurt. Those who are tested must go into self-isolation until they receive their result. The rules will come into force on Saturday. This brings the number of destinations with zero travel restrictions for UK holidaymakers down to three: Sweden, Greece (except Mykonos) and Gibraltar. There are an additional 16 countries that British people can feasibly visit, so long as they can present a negative test result, or take a test on arrival and, in some cases, quarantine for a short period. Grant Shapps, the Transport Secretary, is due to make an announcement on the UK’s travel red list at 5pm today. In recent weeks major holiday destinations, including Italy, Portugal and Turkey, have lost their travel corridors, meaning Britons arriving back in the UK need to quarantine for two weeks. Cyprus could be removed this week after cases shot up, while Germany and Sweden remain at risk. Scroll down for more updates.
