Trip Advisor has ranked the top beaches in the UK, Europe and the world for 2018, with Bournemouth Beach proclaimed number one domestically and fifth in Europe overall. With 11 miles of golden sand running from Hengistbury Head to Sandbanks, Bournemouth Beach is also feted for nearby attractions including the secluded Fisherman’s Walk and Oceanarium.

    Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron are urged to join World Cup boycott to punish Vladimir Putin

    Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron today came under growing pressure to unite with Theresa May by boycotting the World Cup in Russia. Some 60 politicians from 15 European nations joined forces to urge the pair to punish Russian leader Vladimir Putin for the Salisbury nerve gas attack by staying away. The campaign was launched by German Green MEP Rebecca Harms and snowballed into an EU-wide move to press European leaders to stand together in the face of Kremlin aggression.

    There is a silver lining to the Windrush scandal – it will force the Tories to become liberal on immigration

    When UK civil servants drew up plans for this week’s summit of Commonwealth leaders in London and Windsor, their themes included “a fairer future, promoting the principles enshrined in the Commonwealth charter of democracy, good governance, human rights and the rule of law”. The heart-rending stories of people in the Windrush generation invited to the UK in the 1950s and 1960s, who have lost jobs and NHS treatment and faced deportation, can be traced back to the “hostile environment” strategy May pursued as Home Secretary. It is no use ministers blaming civil servants.

    How Did Marijuana Become Associated with 4/20?

    According to Dave Reddix, it all started with his five friends in Marin County, California in the 1970s. Reddix told TIME that he and his friends would meet outside of San Rafael High School at 4:20 p.m. by the statue of chemist Louis Pasteur to smoke up. The group, which called themselves the “Waldos” because they met at a wall after school, used the code word “420” when talking about marijuana.

    Tube-fed father defying odds to run the London Marathon

    A father-of-two is set to be one of the first enterally tube-fed people to run the London Marathon. Gary Taylor, 46, from Halifax, West Yorkshire, wants to inspire others by showing you can live “a relatively normal life” despite needing to be enterally fed. The electrical engineer was diagnosed with a rare tumour in his neck in 2016. Fortunately, the tumour was benign, however it required invasive surgery which means that Gary will probably never eat a normal meal again.
