News stand

The US Embassy in London is refusing to pay the capital's congestion charge, declaring it an illegal tax under the terms of the Vienna Convention. Mayor Ken Livingstone has clamped and removed cars belonging to diplomats.

The first tram in 68 years rolled through the streets of Paris last week in a bid to ease the city's congestion.

A second tornado struck Birmingham last Thursday only a mile from the site where another caused havoc a few months earlier. A house roof was ripped off while four people were inside and a nearby road was closed after being littered with debris.
