Monday was first day that EU markets have really been spooked by a possible "Brexit".

The campaigns have gotten very personal, especially against Boris Johnson. The vote is on June 23.

A group of "well‐trained" Russian hooligans were behind the violence in Marseille when Russia played England in a Euro 2016 match.

The 150 Russian football supporters "were well prepared for ultra‐rapid, ultra‐violent action" and were able to evade arrest, a city prosecutor said.

More than 30 people have been injured ‐ four seriously, and most of them England fans.

 A total of 20 people have been arrested after 3 days of disorder in the French city.

New London mayor Sadiq Khan plans to ban ads across the London transport system (the Tube & buses) promoting unhealthy or unrealistic body images, starting from next month.

He says “As the father of two teenage girls, I am extremely concerned about this kind of advertising which can demean people, particularly women, and make them ashamed of their bodies. It is high time it came to an end.”
