Rishi Sunak strolls along sun-soaked California pier with his family in holiday photos | Politics News

Rishi Sunak has been pictured on his summer holiday as his family enjoy a “really special” trip to California.

The prime minister, his wife Akshata Murty, and two young daughters Krishna and Anoushka beamed while on the busy Santa Monica Pier where they played funfair games.

The family will also head to Disneyland during their first “proper” family summer holiday in a few years, according to Mr Sunak.

He said his daughters were “very excited” about going to the theme park before joking they fear they will spend too much time at the Star Wars experience because he is a fan.

Wearing casual clothing, Mr Sunak said California is a meaningful place for the family as it is where he met his wife, and where he spent time whilst studying at Stanford University.

Prime ministerial holiday photo shoots are a long tradition, with recent examples including David Cameron being pictured at a Portuguese fish market, and Theresa May hiking in Switzerland.

It comes after five Greenpeace activists were arrested after climbing onto the roof of the Sunak family manor house in North Yorkshire with a sign that read “no new oil”.

The climate activist group were protesting the prime minister’s “backing for a major expansion of North Sea oil and gas drilling” where it will grant 100 new licences off the coast of Scotland.

BBC suspends presenter accused of paying teen for sexually explicit photos | UK News

The BBC has suspended the unnamed presenter accused of paying a teenager thousands of pounds for sexually explicit photos.

In a statement, the broadcaster said: “The BBC takes any allegations seriously and we have robust internal processes in place to proactively deal with such allegations.

“This is a complex and fast moving set of circumstances and the BBC is working as quickly as possible to establish the facts in order to properly inform appropriate next steps.

“It is important that these matters are handled fairly and with care.

“We have been clear that if – at any point – new information comes to light or is provided to us, this will be acted upon appropriately and actively followed up.

“The BBC first became aware of a complaint in May. New allegations were put to us on Thursday of a different nature and in addition to our own enquiries we have also been in touch with external authorities, in line with our protocols.

“We can also confirm a male member of staff has been suspended.

“We expect to be in a position to provide a further update in the coming days as the process continues. The BBC Board will continue to be kept up to date.”

BBC presenter accused over explicit photos ‘stripped to underpants during video call with youth’ | UK News

A “household name” BBC presenter accused of paying a teenager for explicit photos is facing fresh allegations that he stripped to his underpants during a video call with the youth.

The young person’s mother said she was “shocked” after her offspring showed her a screenshot of the video chat, in which the unnamed star was sitting in his boxer shorts on a sofa at his home.

She told The Sun that the man appeared to be “leaning forward, getting ready for my child to perform for him.”

“My child told me, ‘I have shown things’ and this was a picture from some kind of video call,” she added.

The newspaper did not say when the alleged incident happened.

The mother also alleged that earlier this year she was shocked after overhearing the presenter “on the phone saying to my child: ‘I told you not to f***ing ring me’.”

It comes after The Sun previously claimed that the well-known presenter had paid a total of more than £35,000 to the youth in return for “sexual pictures”.

The man is said to have first requested images when the teenager was 17 back in 2020, and has made a series of payments since then.

No one involved has been named, but The Sun said the presenter has not been suspended and is thought to still being paid his six-figure salary in full.

It said the family made a complaint on 19 May but came forward to the media after becoming frustrated that the man was still on air a month later.

The mother said her offspring told her they had also received a payment of £1,000 in June over PayPal which suggested that the “BBC hadn’t spoken to this man” in the weeks after the initial complaint.

Going public ‘the only way to stop it’

The presenter is now off-air and the BBC has reportedly launched an investigation, although the corporation has not confirmed this.

The youth, who is now aged 20, used the money to fund a crack cocaine habit which “destroyed” their life, the mother has also claimed.

She told the newspaper: “If it goes on then my child is going to wind up dead. Putting this out to the public is the only way to stop it.”

The claims have prompted frenzied speculation on social media over the identity of the presenter and led to a string of BBC stars, including Jeremy Vine and Gary Lineker, to public speak out to deny they are the mystery figure.

Earlier on the BBC’s News at Ten programme, the broadcaster’s special correspondent Lucy Manning described the situation as “very serious for the BBC” and warned it could “severely dent the BBC’s reputation”.

She added: “The understanding is the presenter isn’t due on air in the near future, but we haven’t been told – and we have asked…. whether there has or hasn’t been a formal suspension.

“The BBC will need to answer if the investigation should have happened sooner, if it should have been more thorough, and if it’s fair to other presenters, unconnected to this, that their names are now sort of in the headlines.”

A BBC spokesperson said: “We treat any allegations very seriously and we have processes in place to proactively deal with them.

“As part of that, if we receive information that requires further investigation or examination we will take steps to do this. That includes actively attempting to speak to those who have contacted us in order to seek further detail and understanding of the situation.”

They added: “If we get no reply to our attempts or receive no further contact that can limit our ability to progress things but it does not mean our enquiries stop.

“If, at any point, new information comes to light or is provided – including via newspapers – this will be acted upon appropriately, in line with internal processes.”

Unearthed photos of Kate Moss and Cameron Diaz to go on display in London | Ents & Arts News

Unearthed photographs of British supermodel Kate Moss and US actor Cameron Diaz are going on display in London.

The rare Polaroids were taken by celebrity photographer Michel Haddi in the 1990s during separate magazine photoshoots of the stars.

While clearing out his storage, Mr Haddi stumbled across the images.

During a 1991 photoshoot of Moss for British GQ, she posed topless on the edge of a sofa and in the next image she is pictured lying down.

Having met Moss at the Cannes Film Festival while she was dating Hollywood actor Johnny Depp, Mr Haddi compared her to “the mermaid of Copenhagen” – a nod to the famous bronze statue by Edvard Eriksen that sits in the harbour of Nyhavn, Copenhagen.

“I said: ‘Oh my God, this girl is like a dream,’… she doesn’t care about nothing and she’s so beautiful,” he said.

“This was a girl that at the time was a big star then, but she said: ‘Your photo work of Johnny is so beautiful. I will love that if you could do some like that of me.’

“I did some photographs of her there and then.”

In 1993, Mr Haddi photographed Diaz for Vogue Homme Magazine.

He said the There’s Something About Mary actor turned up to his LA studio in a t-shirt that read: “Our p*****, our choice”.

“You have to keep in mind that Cameron used to be a model before so she was very aware of all the ins and outs of the business,” Mr Haddi explained.

“She was a delight. She was very sweet. She has a great sense of humour.”

Olivia was killed by a masked attacker who had chased convicted burglar Joseph Nee, 35, into her terraced home in Kingsheath Avenue, in the Dovecot area of the city, on Monday night.

Her mother Cheryl Korbel, 46, was shot in the wrist as she tried to close the door on the gunman, who fired indiscriminately into the house.

Olivia was fatally shot by the same bullet as she stood behind her.

Teddies and flowers with written tributes have since been left near the youngster’s home, with one reading: “A precious little angel taken too soon. God bless. Sleep tight Olivia.”

More than £18,000 has also been raised to help her grieving family.

The GoFundMe page reads: “We are raising to help the family with this tragic loss. We can’t imagine the pain they’re all going through and want to help in any way we can. Let’s give this little angel the send-off she deserves.”

Flowers are left near to the scene of an incident in Kingsheath Avenue, Knotty Ash, Liverpool, where nine-year-old Olivia Pratt-Korbel was fatally shot on Monday night. Picture date: Thursday August 25, 2022.

Olivia’s cousin Luke Korbel described her as “one in a million” and “the most funniest and politest” girl who “always had a smile on her face”.

He also shared online photographs and videos of Olivia, including one of her opening a Christmas present and exclaiming: “Guess what I got?”

In another clip, he got her to say phrases at the camera including “our kid”, “cheese” and “vote Labour”.

In a later social media post he wrote: “I’m stuck in a dream… heartbreaking isn’t the word for it.”

“Hearing everyone’s stories that they had with you, seeing pictures on near every post or notification, it just doesn’t feel real,” he continued.

He added that he hoped Olivia was “riding your bike high up there just like you would of always been doing”.

“I love you cuz. We won’t stop fighting ever, forever our little angel.”

Olivia went to St Margaret Mary’s Catholic Junior School in Huyton, where she was thought of as a kind-hearted, helpful and happy little girl.
