0 Have your say Fly-tippers could be caught by the use of cameras hidden inside Coca Cola cans.

The appointment would fill a management void after a tumultuous stand-off with unions at French carrier Air France.

VIOLENT young offenders are to get tips on healthy eating in a controversial ‘wellbeing’ plan from the Ministry of Justice. Ministers yesterday rubber stamped a Prisons in Sport programme which will also see Premier League clubs such as Manchester United supporting education programmes to cut reoffending. The plan will formally axe madcap proposals to teach young lags kung fu and other martial arts – revealed by The Sun in June. The idea was pushed by ex-Justice Minister Philip Lee before he quit earlier this summer over Brexit. But it risks sparking fresh accusations the Government is ‘going soft’.
