News from around the world with Dotun Adebayo. Air Raid sirens are sounded across Tel Aviv for the first time in 20 years as rockets are fired at the city from the Gaza strip. There's speculation that Israeli ground troops could be planning an offensive. Up All Night is live in Tel Aviv and Gaza for reaction from both sides.

A train ploughs into a trailer carrying war veterans during a parade in West Texas, killing four people.

The county of Wiltshire elects the country's first ever police commissioner and there are live results and analysis from by-elections in Manchester and Cardiff. Labour win both seats but there's the lowest turn-out since the Second World War in Manchester and only 25 per cent bother to vote in Cardiff.

BP is fined £3billion following the Deepwater Horizon disaster - but not everybody is satisfied. Shrimp distributor Dean Blanchard is from Louisiana.

"We basically don't have no business. Where I live it's a dead zone. The shrimp still don't have no eyes, we got shrimp with tumours, we got crabs with holes in them, fish with holes in them. BP's doing an effective job of fooling the American public. They don't fuel America, they fool America.'

And Dotun hosts the Film Phone-In which this week concentrates on the best chase scenes in the history of cinema.
