  • Football - Van Gaal hopes De Gea extends stay

    De Gea is in the running to win the PFA Player of the Year award following a string of fine performances for United.

  • Ancient 'Lost' Tribe On Mysterious Island Try To Kill All Visitors

    It sounds like the sort of mythical place Indiana Jones might visit  - a society which has lived on the same island for 60,000 years, uncontacted by modern man.

  • Madeleine McCann latest: are police any closer to knowing the truth?

    Every possible theory has been explored since then: that Madeleine was abducted by a paedophile; that she was killed during a bungled burglary and her body dumped; that she was abducted by traffickers and sold to a childless couple; that she wandered out of the apartment and died in a tragic accident, and many more besides. To date, however, not one shred of proof of what happened to Madeleine has been unearthed. The question of what happened to Madeleine would become not only a personal tragedy for the McCann family, but a national obsession in the UK and in Portugal. Madeleine, of Rothley, Leicestershire, was on the penultimate day of her family holiday on the day she vanished.
