  5. PC sex killing highlights dark world of hook-up apps

    Tom Symonds

    Home Affairs Correspondent

    PC Gordon Semple appeared settled in life but he had a secret - a dangerous lifestyle of extreme sexual activity, arranged over the internet and fuelled by drugs.

    The London PC's dismembered body was found in the flat of Stefano Brizzi - the IT worker who has been found guilty of his murder by an Old Bailey jury.

    The men met using Grindr, the smartphone app millions of gay men use to look up others nearby and send them messages, often to arrange dates or "hook-ups".

    Sometimes that can involve finding partners willing to take part in extreme sexual activities while taking drugs, sold or exchanged when users meet up.

    "Chemsex", as it is known, is a growing part of gay culture, and the Brizzi trial laid bare its darkest secrets.

  11. BreakingNot guilty by reason of insanity

    A Kent father who was shot three times by the police as he was stabbing his daughter has been found not guilty of attempted murder by reason of insanity.

  12. France 'will definitely close UK border at Calais'

    The French government is "definitely" going to close the UK border post in Calais after Brexit, a close ally of presidential election frontrunner Alain Juppe has told the BBC.

    Arnaud Danjean said France no longer wanted the "negative burden" of migrants aiming to cross the Channel being detained on its soil.

    The change would be an "uncomfortable consequence" of Brexit, he said. 

    The Calais Jungle

    Speaking to BBC Radio 4's Analysis programme, Mr Danjean, a member of the European Parliament for the Republicans, France's main centre-right party, said most French voters felt "disappointed" by the Brexit referendum.

    Analysis is broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Monday from 20:30 GMT and will be available on BBC iPlayer and the programme's own website. Or read the full story here.
