- Tooting Bec man and his wife are jailed for nine years and five years respectively for smuggling hundreds of young eastern European women into Britain.

- Maggy Beckett tries to defend George Bush's decision not to sign the Kyoto agreement on the first day of the climate change summit.

- Britain's target for the 2012 Olympic games is 18 gold medals.
