  7. 'Disgraceful' dangerous driver has jail sentence increased

    A dangerous driver who caused a fatal crash has had six months added to his jail sentence after an appeal.

    Anthony Howell hit Adinajib Awale in Tooting, south London, in May 2015.

    Howell did not stop at the scene. He went home and called the police for a crime reference number for insurance purposes, saying the damage had been caused by someone throwing something at his car.

    Today, following action from the Solicitor General, the Court of Appeal increased Howell’s sentence from 10 months suspended for two years to 16 months to be served immediately.

    Solicitor General Robert Buckland QC MP said Howell's offence was "disgraceful".

    "No sentence can bring back Mr Awale but I hope that the increase will bring his family some comfort,” he added.

  13. Arsenal ease to first-leg Europa League win at Ostersunds FK

    BBC Sport

    Ostersunds FK playing Arsenal

    Arsene Wenger praised his Arsenal side for the way they overcame unfamiliar surroundings as they easily beat Swedish side Ostersunds FK to more or less guarantee their place in the last 16 of the Europa League.

    The game was played in -4C temperatures on a 4G plastic pitch at the Jamtkraft Arena, but the visitors made light of alien conditions to win comfortably.

    Left-back Nacho Monreal scored the Gunners' first from close range when Ostersund goalkeeper Aly Keita fumbled Alex Iwobi's strike.

    Then the home side's centre-back Sotirios Papagiannopoulos diverted Henrikh Mkhitaryan's cross into his own net after the Armenian seized on a loose pass.
