A Richmond Park site where legend held that Henry VIII awaited a sign of Anne Boleyn's execution has been made scheduled monument It was traditionally thought the Tudor monarch watched for a rocket rising from the Tower of London to signal the beheading of his wife, and his new freedom to marry Lady Jane Seymour. King Henry’s Mound has been given protected status by Historic England, and experts believe it was most likely an Iron Age burial site which attracted the later legend after the 1536 execution. Prior to the apocryphal tale being told, the site in Richmond Park was also a popular hunting spot for figures including Elizabeth I, and has been scheduled as a nationally important site. Henry VII made use of the park, and his tempestuous son was said to have eagerly awaited the execution of his wife from a mound in the area. Despite this centuries-old tale being unfounded, the king being away in Wiltshire at the time, experts believe the site deserves to be protected from development and damage. Heritage Minister Nigel Huddleston said: "The King Henry VIII mound has been an important part of the landscape of Richmond Park for centuries, and while part of its story may only be legend, it is fitting that we are protecting the site for future generations." The mound is thought to be an ancient round barrow funerary monument dating from between 2400-1500 BC, making an unusual monument within Greater London. It was later used as a viewing platform above the chaos of royal hunts. The centre of the capital is still visible from the raised spot, which could yield archaeological information on Bronze Age funerary practices, and Medieval hunting. Duncan Wilson, Historic England chief executive, said: “It illustrates both change and continuity, and has clearly been a special place for thousands of years. It clearly merits the protection being conferred on it today.”

There's a common misconception that - even though they're humans with active oil glands just like us - celebrities don't struggle with acne. Whether that stems from the airbrushed photos we see in fashion and beauty campaigns or the blemish-free selfies they sometimes share online, it's far from the truth. Plenty of stars have used their platforms to open up about their skin concerns, talking honestly about their breakouts and sometimes even sharing unfiltered photos of their flare-ups on social media. Many celebrities have also dished on the acne treatments they swear by for clearer skin - and a lot of the time, the products are surprisingly affordable. Check out the products that celebs like Lili Reinhart and Madelaine Petsch turn to the most, ahead.

British and EU negotiators are set to clash over the terms of a new extradition treaty during a crunch round of trade talks with Brussels, which start on Tuesday. The UK will demand its judges have greater powers to refuse EU extradition requests than under the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) system it must leave at the end of the year. Warrants could be dismissed if there had not yet been a decision to charge or try the wanted suspect to prevent long periods of pre-trial detention, under the British plan, or if the UK courts think the cost of an arrest outweighs the seriousness of the offence. The European Commission wants EU courts to be able to refuse UK extradition requests for suspects facing whole life sentences unless Britain undertakes to review the penalty either on request or, at the latest, 20 years after the sentence. Whole life sentences have been subject to failed legal challenges on the basis they break the European Convention on Human Rights. The UK has refused to commit to never leaving the Convention during the negotiations, which is an EU condition for continued criminal database sharing, but insists it won’t leave it. Brussels also wants judges to refuse extradition requests if they believe they are motivated by the suspect's “sex, race, religion, ethnic origin, nationality, language, political opinions or sexual orientation”. The EAW replaced bilateral extradition agreements between countries with a much faster system that involved the judiciary directly rather than politicians. It was agreed, with British support, two months after 9/11. Brexiteers later argued that carrying out arrests on the orders of foreign magistrates was an affront to national sovereignty. The Government’s refusal to allow any future role for the European Court of Justice in Britain after Brexit means a replacement extradition system must be agreed before the end of the transition period. If the deadline isn’t met by January 1, the UK will fall back on 1956 rules for extradition which are far slower. The UK and EU must also finalise a free trade agreement by December 31, unless Downing Street caves on its repeated insistence it won’t extend transition, or be forced to trade on less lucrative WTO terms.
