Kate sees William get his wings - 'Home Loans To Halve' Warning - Council defends Bond tactics for family - Judge warns MoD on troops equipment - Plan to test CCTV cameras in exams.



Kate sees William get his wings
Prince William and Kate Middleton have made a rare public appearance together after he was awarded his pilot's wings by the Prince of Wales. The graduation ceremony at RAF Cranwell in Lincolnshire comes after Prince William learnt to fly during a four-month attachment with the RAF. Around 25 graduates from the RAF's Central Flying School also received their insignias.

'Home Loans To Halve' Warning
Home owners are being warned that mortgage lending could halve this year - unless the Bank of England stumps up more cash. The grim prospect for the stagnating housing market has come from the Council of Mortgage Lenders (CML). CML chairman Steven Crawshaw said home loans could fall to half last year's £108bn as banks and building societies struggle with more expensive funding following the credit crunch.

Council defends Bond tactics for family
Council officials in Dorset are defending their decision to use anti-terror laws to spy on a family who had a applied for a school place. Poole Borough Council carried out the surveillance for a fortnight to see if the family was lying about a catchment area in order to get their child into a local school. The council treats alleged fraudulent applications for school places as a potentially criminal matter and used laws passed to track criminals and terrorists in order for an official to make a detailed log of their daily activities.

Judge warns MoD on troops equipment
Families of soldiers who have died on active service have welcomed a landmark High Court human rights ruling they believe may help them win compensation. Senior judge Mr Justice Collins declared that it could breach British soldiers' human rights to send troops out on patrol or into battle with defective equipment. The decision potentially has important implications for military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Plan to test CCTV cameras in exams
CCTV cameras could be introduced to exam halls in an attempt to tackle cheating and protect invigilators against unfounded complaints. The Examination Officers' Association (EOA) is planning to test the move in a small number of exam centres. The Association of Teachers and Lecturers warned last month of an "Orwellian" surveillance culture developing in schools as more classrooms are fitted with CCTV cameras to monitor pupils' behaviour.
