The move will seem like an odd gesture coming at a time when the Israeli Defence Force say they will not reduce pressure on Hamas until they agree to close the network of terror tunnels they have built. The tunnel - believed to be the Limehouse Link Tunnel in Muslim-dominated Tower Hamlets – was closed by a number of c ...

When TEN learned Seven would launch The X Factor at 6:30pm on Sunday they hurriedly moved their Ian Thorpe tell-all to 6pm.
