  • Woman in court battle with rail operator after losing both legs under a train

    Diana Morgan-Hill was 29 and running her own company, with her future before her. Then, one fateful day 25 years ago, her life changed forever when she lost both legs after falling underneath a train in south London. And her ordeal didn't end there. Only a week after the accident, while she was still in hospital under heavy sedation, British Rail announced it was intending to take Diana to court. Using a 100-year-old by-law, they wanted to prosecute her for trespassing on the railway line. It was the start of a five-year struggle for Diana, who was certain the train had been stationary when she attempted to board. She said: "My fight with what was then British Rail was worse even than losing my legs."

  • Britain's new princess can't expect fairy-tale life

    William and Kate's new daughter is the first British princess who won't face royal discrimination because she's a girl, but that doesn't mean her life will be a fairy tale. Thanks to a change in the centuries-old rules of royal succession, if Princess Charlotte has a younger brother, he won't overtake her in line to the throne. The experience of Kate — and, even more, of the baby's late grandmother, Princess Diana — suggests the level of interest the princess can expect.

  • French fighter jets find takers in a worried world

    By John Irish RIYADH (Reuters) - After failing for years to win a single order for the Dassault-built Rafale fighter jet, France has scored a string of multi-billion-euro wins in recent weeks and is on a quest for more.

    Motorists are being hit by the "double taxing" of cars for the month they change hands under new regulations accompanying the scrapping of the need to show tax discs on windscreens, the AA has said. This double tax is providing the Government with an estimated £38 million windfall, according to the AA. Since October, motorists have not been required to display their vehicle excise duty (VED) car tax discs on their windscreens, with the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) logging tax details electronically.
