Two People Killed In Helicopter Crash In Yorkshire
Two people were killed after a helicopter crashed in the grounds of a luxury hotel and golf club near Harrogate.
The aircraft came down in the grounds of Rudding Park Golf Club this afternoon.
An ambulance service said both the dead were believed to be inside the helicopter when it crashed.

Pleasure Boat Millenium City Holed In River Thames
Thirty-five passengers and crew were on board a pleasure boat which was in danger of sinking after it hit Westminster Bridge.
The 288-tonne Millennium City, belonging to City Cruises, got into difficulties after holing its bow by striking the bridge at 10.30pm. Firefighters used specialist pumps to siphon water two metres deep out of the craft's engine rooms. Pumping was completed and the engine room sealed successfully.

MPs say FSA shake-up needed
The financial watchdog failed in its duty to regulate Northern Rock and a new office should be set up to intervene in failing banks, a committee of influential legislators said on Saturday.
The Bank of England should oversee the new post rather than the Financial Services Authority (FSA), the Commons Treasury Select Committee said in a damning report.

Zimbabwe police arrest British businessman
Zimbabwean police arrested a British businessman, Nicholas van Hoogstraten, after finding a large quantity of foreign currency and pornographic material in his possession, state media reported Saturday.
Police spokesman Wyane Bvudzijena told the state-run Herald newspaper that Van Hoogstraten had been charging rents on properties he owned in foreign currency and illegally dealing in foreign currency.

Coercion claim over British ID cards: report
The British government is considering "coercion" tactics to force people to get biometric identity cards, according to a report to be published in a Sunday newspaper based on a leaked document.
The Sunday People tabloid said it had obtained details of an interior ministry memo indicating that officials are thinking about how the controversial cards can be made compulsory.
