  • Pensioner, 70, charged with 1961 murder of funfair girl

    A man of 70 has been charged with the murder of a teenage girl 46 years after they were seen leaving a funfair together. Anthony Hall was arrested after police launched a coldcase review of the unsolved killing of 15-year-old Jacqueline Thomas in 1961. A week later the teenager was found raped and strangled in undergrowth in a nearby disused allotment in Bordesley Green, Birmingham, by a man walking his dog. The murder sparked a manhunt involving hundreds of officers who quizzed workers at the Hughes biscuit factory where she worked, along with showmen at the funfair she had visited, as well as residents of hundreds of neighbouring homes.

  • Hamilton Sets The Pace In Monaco Practice

    Lewis Hamilton has set the pace in the opening practice for the Monaco GP, with Mercedes teammate and rival Nico Rosberg down in ninth place. The German clipped the barriers in the opening minutes of the session and ended up with a fastest lap over a second slower than Hamilton's best, a 1:18.750. With Rosberg rejoining on a fresh set of soft tyres ahead of everyone else, the suspicion is that he therefore wasn't able to make use of them when the track conditions were at their best.
