    Ukraine could 'break' the Russian army if it was given enough weapons from Western allies, it has been claimed. Last night, British intelligence sources suggested there is a more positive mood on the Ukrainian side with a belief that the Russian army is 'exhausted' and could be pushed back with better weaponry. The weaponry sought by the Ukrainians has been compiled into a shopping list and submitted to allies. It is believed to include aircraft, tanks, armoured vehicles, long range artillery, anti-ship missiles and air defence systems. Yesterday, the Czech Republic became the first NATO member to supply tanks to Ukraine and now Britain is considering following suit.    The Ministry of Defence is said to be considering providing reconnaissance or long-range and protective patrol vehicles, such as the Mastiff or a Jackal. Sensitive equipment would be stripped from the vehicles and British soldiers sent to a neighbouring country of Ukraine to carry out training, a defence source told The Times. Additional support – which is likely to include anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles – is also expected to be announced in...

    FILMING on the fifth Indiana Jones film hit a stumbling block after Morocco banned flights to and from the UK amid rising Covid cases. More than 100 crew are in the country preparing for a rickshaw chase stunt in the city of Fes. 1Filming has also been hit by storms, Covid, norovirus and injury to FordCredit: Alamy Cast members including Harrison Ford, 79, and Phoebe Waller-Bridge, 36, were due to arrive there from shooting in Italy. But film bosses were left wondering whether to fly the crew home before the ban came in or how to get them back after. A source said: “The flight ban left everything totally up in the air. “It’s not clear what will happen once the scene is completed, but they could be granted a special exemption to fly home.” Filming — which has also taken place in London, Glasgow and Northumberland — was also hit by storms, Covid, norovirus and injury to Ford.

    Lucky stargazers have taken to social media to share stunning photos of the Northern Lights seen in the skies above the UK, US and Canada last night. The typically green and pink light shows occur when electrically charged particles from the Sun excite gases in the Earth's atmosphere, causing them to glow. The wavy patterns they assume resemble curtains of light, and reflect the lines of force in the Earth's geomagnetic field along which the solar particles travel. Normally, the aurorae are only visible at higher latitudes, centred around Earth's magnetic poles, However, yesterday's huge solar storm increased their range, meaning the lights were visible as far south as New York in the US, and in parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England in the UK.  Scroll down for video Lucky stargazers have taken to social media to share stunning photos of the Northern Lights seen in the skies above the UK, US and Canada last night.

    The US travel ban on visitors from the US and UK will be lifted from November - ending 18 months of transatlantic travel uncertainty. The news is set to be announced by the State Department on Monday morning and will coincide with the UN General Assembly in NYC - where both President Biden and British PM Boris Johnson will speak. The move will mark the end of intense negotiation between London and Washington after the UK and EU lifted their bans on American visitors - but this was not reciprocated by DC.   Under current travel policy, only American citizens, their immediate families, green card holders and those with national interest exemptions  are allowed to travel to the US.   According to the Financial Times, Biden is due to unveil a new policy imminently that would apply to EU and British travellers from November. UK government sources told MailOnline they expect an announcement later and 'it's looking positive.'

    A new study that remained unpublished for more than a year found that animals known to be carrying coronaviruses were sold at local wet markets in the 2010s.   Researchers from the Chinese government's Key Laboratory of Southwest China Wildlife Resources Conservation, the University of Oxford in the UK and the University of British Columbia in Canada collected data from several markets in Wuhan and photographs from the Huanan seafood market.  Published in the journal Scientific Reports, the study found that several species including civets, dogs, minks, raccoons and more - infected with different types of coronaviruses - were sold for years, reported Bloomberg. For the past several months, there has been back-and-forth speculation about the origins of COVID-19 and whether it came from wild animals or was manufactured in and accidentally escaped from a laboratory. The findings seem to support scientists' original theory, which is that the virus occurred in nature before it jumped to humans.  A study from researchers in China, the UK and Canada that went unpublished for more than a year has been posted online looking...

    A new documentary tells the harrowing untold story of the 168 airmen who were freed from a Nazi concentration camp during World War II only told by the US, UK and other allied governments that their ordeal never happened. Documentary maker and grandson of one of the airmen, Mike Dorsey, has shared with DailyMailTV footage of his movie about the astonishing story of the American, Canadian, British, Australian, and New Zealand airmen's ordeal. Though all the military men are now dead, Dorsey managed to get many of them to tell their shocking tale on camera over the past ten years, which will finally be revealed in full in documentary, Lost Airmen of Buchenwald. In 1940 the brave servicemen parachuted from their doomed aircrafts behind enemy lines in Nazi-occupied France, and were taken in by the French Resistance.

    Merry-go-rounds from Britain, basmati rice from India and handbags from Italy: The U.S. threatened Wednesday to slap tariffs on $2 billion of products from six countries in response to their taxes on American tech giants. The issue is roiling relations between Washington and other nations who are furious at the way the likes of Google and Facebook can reduce local taxes by recording their profits in low-tax jurisdictions such as Ireland. The result was a flexing of U.S. financial muscle barely a week before world leaders are due to assemble in the UK for a G7 summit. U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai announced her office was imposing tariffs on Austria, India, Italy, Spain, Turkey and the U.K. but immediately suspending them for six months to allow negotiations to continue. Merry-go-rounds, shooting galleries, boat-swings, traveling circuses and menageries imported from Britain would all be hit by a 25 percent tariff if Washington and world capitals cannot agree how best to tax internet giants such Facebook, Google and Amazon The list of sanctions includes carpets from Turkey, as well as...
