You have been sending us your photos of news stories across the globe this week. Here is a selection of them:

The fire and smoke plume was clearly visible to aircraft landing and taking off from nearby Glasgow Airport in Scotland, although it did not interfere with flight schedules. Tom Redsell took this photo from a plane window showing how the smoke could be seen spreading across Renfrewshire and Glasgow.
Hundreds of Eurotunnel passengers were evacuated from a train between England and France on Monday and forced to wait inside the Channel Tunnel due to damaged overhead power lines. Brian Tait captured this image of customers who had to disembark from the 06:20 service from Folkestone in England that stopped about seven miles into the 30-mile journey to France. Normal service did not resume until Tuesday.
One hundred and ninety six elite cyclists passed Buckingham Palace and entered The Mall in London to complete the third stage of the Tour de France on Monday. Tim Seed from Fleet in Hampshire took this photo while lining the route in the UK capital and said the atmosphere was "buzzing". The competition has since decamped to France.
Hundreds of thousands of public sector workers in the UK took part in strike action on Thursday in a dispute over pay, pensions and job cuts. The government said a fifth of civil servants had taken part in the strike but most had reported for work. The GMB and Unison unions said more than one million people were involved in the protest. Russell Whitehead took this photo of the march in Coventry in the West Midlands.
