Irish Sea ferry rescue launched
Helicopters have been scrambled to rescue passengers and crew from a ferry in the Irish Sea. The Riverdance got into difficulties in high winds, 10 nautical miles off the coast of Fleetwood, Lancashire.
Three helicopters - two from the RAF and one from the Irish coastguard in Dublin - and tug boats have been sent to airlift 23 people from the stricken vessel.

Morocco to extradite Briton for huge robbery, jails three others
Morocco was Thursday set to extradite a Briton, Paul Allen, wanted over Britain's biggest cash robbery, after jailing three others on lesser charges, Allen's lawyer and a judicial source said.
"Paul Allen this morning left Sale prison ahead of his extradiction after a request from the British government that was recently approved by the Supreme Court," lawyer Benalamhisi Aissaoui told AFP.

Tory MP suspended for 'improper use' of public funds
A Conservative MP was suspended from parliament for 10 days Thursday for misuse of public funds over the employment of his student son as a researcher. After a debate in parliament, his fellow MPs ordered Derek Conway to repay 13,160 pounds. Conway had paid the money to his son Freddie for work in the House of Commons, at a time when he was in fact studying full-time in Newcastle.

Tax deadline reprieve after website crash
Thousands of taxpayers were given a 24-hour grace period for filing their self-assessment returns after the tax department's website crashed, it announced Thursday.
As the deadline loomed for an estimated 150,000 taxpayers, the Revenue and Customs website crashed for several hours. It caused problems for people trying to lodge their self-assessment returns online - as urged to by authorities - before the Thursday deadline.

BAA says tax reforms carry major cost
BAA, the airport unit owned by Spanish construction and services group Ferrovial , said the removal of a buildings tax allowance in the UK could cost it 1.4 billion pounds.
In a statement late Thursday, BAA said the abolition of the industrial building allowance, announced by the government in its budget last year, means it will not be able to take advantage of tax relief on around 5 billion pounds of spending at its seven airports in the UK.
