North Dakota law enforcement admits that it had little experience, and no policies in place, when it fired rubber bullets, tear gas, and other chemical agents into Standing Rock Water Protectors.

In an internal report, not meant for public view, three North Dakota Congressmen are identified who aided law enforcement in the excessive force used at Standing Rock: Congressman Kevin Cramer, Senator Heidi Heitkamp, and Senator John Hoeven.

Among 178 agencies named in the militarized buildup for the benefit of Dakota Access Pipeline is the unlikely agency of US Customs and Border Patrol. The report confirms that North Dakota Game and Fish was responsible for aerial spying on Standing Rock camps.

While stating the pros and cons of its SWAT Team, the report states, “There were no formal, pre-planned policies on the use of less-than-lethal munitions and riot control/chemical agents.”

The report is the North Dakota Emergency Response After-Action Report, made public by The Intercept.

The report states, “The historical lack of experience with large-scale violent protests meant that little planning had gone into the use of less-than-lethal munitions and riot control/chemical agents.”

Andy Murray admits considering shaving entire body for wife Kim Sears amidst ‘dry spell’

Amused by the remark, Romesh asks the tennis ace to explain how their conversation came about.

“So were you having dinner or was it late one evening and you said, ‘Would you like it if I shaved my body from top to bottom?'”

Chuckling to himself Andy went into more detail.

“We’d probably been going through a bit of a dry spell and maybe I’d lost a bit of confidence,” he said.

Cancer symptoms: 5.1 million patients on ‘enormous’ backlog, admits NHS Medical Director

Appearing on BBC One’s Andrew Marr Show, Professor Powis acknowledged 5.1 million people are currently on the NHS waiting list. This was “inevitable”, he said, as services were disrupted by the pandemic. However, Professor Powis is adamant that NHS staff are “ahead of where we thought we’d be” when it comes to whittling down the list. This is thanks to innovative ways of working, such as robotic surgery.

“It’s important to speak to a GP so they can investigate,” the NHS added.

GPs can be contacted via their website, on the NHS app, or by calling them.

Following an appointment with your GP – whether virtually or in person – if cancer is suspected, you’ll be referred to a specialist.

This process usually takes place within a fortnight, although it could be much quicker or a bit longer.

Cancer Research UK added other changes you should tell your doctor about. This includes:

  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Heavy night sweats
  • Unexplained pain or ache
  • Sores that won’t heal
  • Changes to a mole.

What is cancer?

Cancer is a condition whereby cells in a specific part of the body grow and reproduce uncontrollably, amassing into a tumour.

The cancerous cells can destroy healthy tissue nearby, including organs.

If the cancerous tumour spreads to another part of the body, this is known as metastasis.

“One in two people will develop some form of cancer during their lifetime,” the NHS warned.

The four most common types of cancer are:

  • Breast cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Bowel cancer.

Making simple lifestyle changes can significantly reduce your risk of developing cancer.

This includes regular exercise, not smoking and eating a healthy diet.

Clarkson’s Farm’s Kaleb Cooper admits snubbing David Cameron as former PM left starstruck

Kaleb Cooper has amassed his own dedicated army of followers since Jeremy Clarkson’s latest Amazon Prime series was released. Clarkson’s Farm follows the former Top Gear presenter as he embarks on a new career venture, farming.

The show debuted just three weeks ago, following the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? host as he struggles to cope with farming, harvesting and other activities.

Doncaster-born Jeremy must contend with “disobedient animals”, “unresponsive crops”, and terrible farming weather conditions, as well as the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, throughout the series, 23-year-old Kaleb Cooper, who used to run Clarkson’s farm for its previous owner, has become a star in his own right.

Since the series first hit the streaming service, Kaleb has gained many fans, including an extremely famous follower.

In a chance encounter, Kaleb bumped into former Prime Minister, David Cameron, who served in office between May 2010 and July 2016.

The Conservative MP has been praised for modernising the Tories as well as decreasing the UK’s national deficit.

However, while Mr Cameron, 54, may be an instantly recognisable character, he was shunned by Kaleb.

In a new interview, he has revealed that during an outing in Chipping Norton, the former Prime Minister was the one to approach him.

Speaking to The Sun, Kaleb said: “The other day when I was in Chippy, I got out the truck and David Cameron, I didn’t realise at the time, was next to me.

“He was like, ‘Oh another local celebrity’ and I’m like, ‘Yeah, yeah, I’ve got to go’.”

Kaleb went on to tell the publication: “I walked straight past, I went, ‘Hang on a minute, that was David Cameron’.

“I said to Jeremy, ‘I think I met David Cameron. Does he drive a pick-up?’ ‘Yeah’, ‘Oh I met David Cameron and didn’t realise it’.”

He added: “So they all laughed at that, I don’t follow the news and I don’t watch TV, so I wouldn’t really know.”

During Clarkson’s Farm, Kaleb is often seen offering his words of advice to Jeremy, 61, who named his farm “Diddly Squat” after admitting he had no knowledge of the agricultural industry.

“The way I think about it, I know about farming and he’s learning, therefore I’m the boss, when he says, ‘We’re gonna do this’, I’m like, ‘No, we’re not going to do that because that won’t work’,” he told the publication.

He added: “He doesn’t listen, I don’t get intimidated by him.”

Last month, Jeremy admitted that despite viewers often seeing him shouting at people on screen, once cameras stop rolling, he is often the one being shouted at.

Speaking on Sky News’ Backstage podcast, he said: “I get shouted at all the time, I’m constantly being shouted at by newspapers and bosses, I’m always being shouted at.”

He went on to acknowledge that it’s “the usual” to see him on screens shouting at other people.

“But in real life, you get shouted out by people who know what they’re doing – I didn’t know what I was doing.”

Susanna Reid and Piers Morgan’s ‘blazing row’ behind-the-scenes as he admits faking smiles

Addressing his swift exit, Susanna said as part of a lengthy statement on air: “Piers and I have disagreed on many things, and that dynamic was one of the things that viewers loved about the programme.

“He is, without doubt, an outspoken, challenging, opinionated, disruptive broadcaster. He has many critics and he has many fans.

“You all know that I disagreed with him about Meghan’s interview, he himself clarified his comments about her mental health on the show yesterday.

“There are many voices on GMB and everyone has their say. But now Piers has decided to leave the programme. Some of you may cheer and others will boo.”

Max Verstappen admits it's 'never easy' to beat Lewis Hamilton despite Styrian GP pole

Championship leader Max Verstappen says he knows it won’t be ‘easy’ to beat Lewis Hamilton after qualifying for the Styrian Grand Prix, despite snatching pole position at the Red Bull Ring, but admits it’s nice to be on top at the team’s home circuit.

The Dutchman set a blistering time of 1:03.841s around the Red Bull Ring, two tenths faster than Valtteri Bottas who set a 1:04.035s with Hamilton behind on a 1:04.067.

The Mercedes driver was quick out of the pit at the start of Q3, an unusual move for a driver in his position, but only mustered a third fastest time, behind his team-mate Bottas, who will drop to fifth after receiving a penalty in practice.

And Verstappen was pleased with his performance, with his team-mate Sergio Perez starting fourth behind Lando Norris in third.

“It’s been a very good weekend, I think, again in qualifying, of course, the car was was really good to drive,” said Verstappen.

“It was not easy to deal with the traffic in the last few corners to get a clean run but I think that first lap in Q3 was good enough at the end.

Wimbledon 'extremely important' for Andy Murray as Brit admits 2021 could be his last one

Andy Murray has insisted he is not coming back to Wimbledon this year to say goodbye – but the 34-year-old admits he cannot be certain this won’t be his final appearance at his home Grand Slam.

The Scot will play singles at The Championships for the first time since 2017 – and the first time with a metal hip.

In the last four years, the Olympic champion has had two hip surgeries, a nagging groin problem and Covid-19 which forced him out of the Australian Open.

The world No 119, who now confesses he should have gone under the knife sooner, has only won two matches on grass in that time.

But on Monday the wildcard will likely return to Centre Court, the scene of his greatest triumphs, to face No 24 seed Nikoloz Basilashvili.

“I think I’ll be excited,” said the Scot. “I’m sure I’ll be nervous as well. It’ll be great. I’ve also just missed playing at Wimbledon, playing at the majors.

“I feel lucky that I’m getting another chance to do it and hopefully I can put in a solid performance.”

Murray has been included in the Olympic team but he admitted at Queen’s Club last week that he approaches every match like it could be his last. So is this his SW19 swansong?

“I don’t want it to be my last Wimbledon,” he said. “That’s not my plan. Like I’m not going into Wimbledon thinking I’m saying goodbye. I want to keep going and I want to keep playing. But obviously I don’t know.

“If I got a significant injury or whatever, then yeah that would obviously change things. But I guess that’s the case with most players when they get into their sort of mid-30s.

“I’m still planning on playing for as long as I can so I hope that’s not the case. When you’ve had multiple setbacks and they keep happening, it’s difficult to not view like each tournament as being extremely important – because you don’t know what is going to happen.”

After losing to John Isner in the 2017 quarter-finals, Murray was out for a year.

“I was feeling horrendous during that tournament – I was in so much pain playing there,” he recalled. “Every minute that passed, I was feeling worse.

“Usually I’m devastated after losing at Wimbledon. I was just so happy that’s over. That was one of my better achievements – to make the quarters that year and get close to the semis.

“We laugh about it today because I don’t know how it did it. Probably one of the reasons why I still feel like I can do well.”

Murray said his hip resurfacing was a “last resort” but added: “The only decision that I would have changed would have been to have had the operation sooner”.

Now he wants to “enjoy” Wimbledon more. “But I’m sure the closer the tournament gets, my competitive instincts will kick in,” he warned. “Once I get on the court, my expectations are high still.”
