Hain quits cabinet 'to clear name' - Explosive Chemical Crash Shuts M6 - Rees 'put under pressure to remember' - Smith attacked over terror plans - MPs accept below-inflation pay rise.



Hain quits cabinet 'to clear name'
Peter Hain has resigned from the Cabinet after police launched a probe into his deputy leadership campaign finances - saying he has "no alternative" but to fight to clear his name.
He became the first casualty of Prime Minister Gordon Brown's term of office, stepping down as Work and Pensions Secretary and Secretary of State for Wales.

Explosive Chemical Crash Shuts M6
The M6 motorway in Cheshire has been closed after a crash involving potentially explosive chemicals.
The motorway was shut in both directions between junctions 18 at Holmes Chapel and 19 at Northwich, shortly after 4.15pm.
It followed a collision involving a lorry carrying several cylinders of oxyacetylene, a gas used in welding.

Rees 'put under pressure to remember'
The former bodyguard who survived the fatal car accident which killed Princess Diana has said he felt pressurised by Mohamed al Fayed to "remember" a flash in the tunnel moments before the crash, an inquest has heard.
Trevor Rees has said he "did not feel comfortable" in Mr al Fayed's presence when the suggestion was put to him.

Smith attacked over terror plans
Home Secretary Jacqui Smith has been accused of undermining the fight against terrorism after publishing plans to extend the detention period for terror suspects.
Both the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats - in a far cry from the political consensus ministers originally pledged to seek - said her plans risked alienating Muslims and driving people to terrorism.

MPs accept below-inflation pay rise
MPs have bowed to the Prime Minister's call for restraint and accepted a below-inflation pay award of 1.9%.
Just a day after thousands of police officers marched through London in protest at their pay rise, the Commons backed, without a vote, the Government's call for "discipline".
It could be the last time that MPs vote on their pay rise - with the Baker review set to come up with a new way of settling awards by the summer.
