Businessman to put up dinosaur models

An Australian businessman has claimed he will push ahead with plans to erect 150 life-size dinosaur models at his five-star resort in Queensland despite councillors' objections.

No nudism in public, San Francisco rules

Life will mean life for worst criminals

The Court of Appeal said yesterday it was right that judges could send offenders to jail without the prospect of release in "exceptionally serious cases". The ruling is likely to be interpreted as a signal to judges in Europe that British courts are satisfied with the validity of "life-means-life" terms.

Lords torpedo 'secret court' plans

The Government's plans to allow some courts to sit in secret to hear evidence from spies were in crisis last night after the House of Lords inflicted a series of blows to the scheme.

Yesterday, Tories joined Labour and Liberal Democrat peers to demand a series of changes.
