What the papers say - THE TIMES

News stand

Aid agencies are assessing damage caused by floods, which killed 100 people in the northern Philippines last week. Philippine president Gloria Magapal Arroyo blamed the floods on deforestation caused by illegal logging, which has led to soil erosion and reduced the water bearing capacity of hillsides.

Mid-Sussex District Council has ordered three homes worth nearly £750,000 to be bulldozed because they were built 2m too tall and contravene planning permission. The council has so far ignored the developer's plea that the height transgression was the result of a construction mistake.
