Catalan president Carles Puigdemont(inset) called moves by Spain to sack his government 'the worst attack since Franco' in a passionate speech delivered in the centre of Barcelona. Protesters(left and middle, in the Placa de Catalunya) waved Catalan flags and held aloft banners as they listened to Mr Puigdemont speak in a central square. The mention of Francisco Franco, the Spanish dictator during the country's Civil War, will bring back painful memories for Catalans(pictured right are images from 1936 showing a fighter, top, and crowds protesting against Franco's oppression). The dictator clamped down on Catalan autonomy and tried to supress its native language. Mr Rajoy said his government wanted to restore the law, ensure regional institutions were neutral and guarantee public services. The measures must now be approved by Spain's upper house, the Senate, where a vote is scheduled for October 27. If the Senate passes the proposals, the Catalan parliament will continue to operate as normal until it is dissolved.

Presley, pictured, is believed to have joined Scientology after the death of husband Elvis. Scientology, founded by science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard in 1955, has been the subject of controversy for years.

It had been thought that Woodward would leave the university voluntarily. Her legal counsel, James Sturman, QC, said she was 'reluctant' to return because she was feared for being recognised.

British Airways have cancelled 10 flights to and from London Heathrow to try and slow the pace of arrivals at the UK's busiest airport.

Palace goes into wedding mode: Prince Harry has won over Meghan's mother... but what about the 'father of the bride' - a retired lighting director who lives in a sleepy corner of Mexico 

He is the man who, if the speculation proves true, should be preparing to take centre-stage at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. After all, as the father of the 'bride', it is Thomas Markle (pictured left with an 11-year-old Meghan) who would normally be expected to walk his daughter down the aisle, giving her away in the time-honoured fashion. More than that, tradition dictates that it is his permission that Prince Harry should seek before proposing. What a curious turn of events that would be: the man fifth in line to the Throne seeking consent from a retired lighting director who lives in a sleepy corner of Mexico. While Harry has been seen in relaxed conversation with his girlfriend's mother Doria (inset) at the Invictus Games in Toronto, and has reportedly introduced Meghan to members of the Royal Family - including, it was claimed last week, the Queen - her father has remained firmly in the shadows. And that is just the way he likes it.

Pay £48BILLION for a Brexit deal by Christmas: EU leaders make demand as they prepare to start talks on trade deal with Britain as soon as next month

In a meeting held after Theresa May (left) attended a Brussels summit yesterday, EU leaders gave the order to prepare for a trade deal. However the talks will only go ahead if the Prime Minister agrees to pay the eye-watering sum, according to reports. An unnamed senior diplomat reportedly said that leaders would accept £30billion for future commitments. Along with the 18billion offered for the transition period between 2019 and 2021 this would amount to £46billion. News of the possible deal comes after Emmanuel Macron (top right) threw cold water on hopes of a Brexit breakthrough. Meanwhile, German chancellor Angela Merkel (bottom right) yesterday said she was hopeful of beginning formal trade talks with the UK in December.

Judge slams former Miss UK exposed as holiday bug cheat

As a former Miss United Kingdom, Rachelle Noon (right) is well used to revelling in the spotlight.

The 28-year-old model (pictured left on holiday) was ordered to pay thousands of pounds to tour operator Thomas Cook after a judge ruled her 'dishonest'. She and her partner Karl, 31, had claimed food at their hotel in Protaras, Cyprus, made them so ill they were virtually unable to leave their room.

Chef's mother blasts Ramsay for 'exploiting son's death'

Last week, Gordon Ramsay made his debut as a presenter of prime-time documentaries - in this case, a two-part investigation into the widespread abuse of cocaine - and the hot-headed chef was at his impassioned best. As he explained to the viewers, this latest mission has a truly personal inspiration - thanks to the tragic, drug-related death of a former colleague and protégé, a young man he described as 'an amazing chef and one of my best mates'. David Dempsey (pictured, right) was 31 and a rising star in the Ramsay empire when he fell 40ft to his death from the window of a luxury flat in 2003. But his mother Eileen Dempsey (pictured, left), 67, says the documentary represents little more than a cynically insensitive attempt to cash in on her son's untimely death.

The British city trader who fought ISIS... and won

Macer Gifford, 30 - believed to have been the only UK national to fight in the battle for the city - was a currency trader before he joined Syrian rebel groups. In 2014, Mr Gifford watched with horror the TV reports of IS atrocities, including the beheading of UK hostages by British fanatic 'Jihadi John'. He ignored the pleas of his family and friends not to go to the warzone as he had no military experience. Mr Gifford fought IS as an unpaid volunteer for three years and his remarkable experiences culminated in the battle for Raqqa - the capital city of the jihadis' so-called caliphate. During IS's reign of terror, Raqqa was the scene of horrific public executions, while men thought to be gay were thrown to their deaths from rooftops. Mr Gifford, who attended £23,000-a-year Kimbolton School in Cambridgeshire, told The Mail on Sunday how he took part in terrifying close-quarter battles in Raqqa in which he almost died.

Battle over couple's £5m to National Trust they despised

The National Trust is to collect a £5.5 million legacy after a bitter legal row over the wills of a wealthy couple who detested the charity. Property tycoon Michael Collins, 78, who suffers from dementia, made a will in 1990 leaving almost all his fortune to the Trust. But he and wife Christine, pictured inset, later clashed with the charity over plans to erect a large bird hide on the boundary between their garden and a country estate it owned. Mrs Collins led protests and the plans were eventually overturned. Despite their subsequent hatred of the Trust, a ruling at the High Court last week means that attempts to get Mr Collins's original will changed so the charity does not get the money have failed. Mrs Collins died aged 65, in 2014, weeks after contracting an aggressive form of cancer. Her husband is now in a nursing home. As they never had children, when Mrs Collins died, her half of the couple's property assets transferred to her husband's estate and are subject to his original will. The large bequest is the proceeds from the sale of the couple's former property in Kensington, West London, which was sold for £4.5 million last April, and their cottage in Gloucestershire, which went for nearly £995,000 in December 2015. The High Court ruling by Judge Jeremy Cousins QC followed an application from the executors of Mrs Collins's estate.

Holiday giants charge adult prices for 12-year-olds 

Cash-strapped parents are being forced to pay adult prices for children at many of Britain's most popular attractions, a Mail on Sunday investigation has revealed.
