The eerie calm of London's streets: How 7/7 unfolded up close — Coming out of the tube station, peak-hour commuter rush, considering what the new day will hold. Suddenly a policeman steps out towards me, smiling. He's feeling smart, one step or two ahead of me: "Hey - Mr. Thomson: You want to call your news desk." "Really? Why? What's up?"

England still doesn’t get what the election in Scotland was really about — A Jockalypse Now - that's the Scottish National Party buzz-phrase as they and their legions bask in the afterglow of turning Scotland yellow from the glens to Glasgow and back. Turning a racial slur into a badge of victory, jock being a derogatory term for Scot.

Voters love the 'most dangerous woman in Britain' — GLASGOW - One street, two meetings, and the essence of a country apparently undergoing a sedate, but real, revolution. Buchanan Street - Glasgow's elegant, sloping answer to London's flat and tatty Oxford Street. Meeting One. Scottish Labour party leader Jim Murphy stands at the lower end of Buchanan Street for an election speech.

Former HSBC boss Lord Green confronted over tax scandal — Lord Green, who has previously refused to answer questions from journalists on the scandal, was giving a lecture on Banking and Finance at St Michael's Cornhill church in the city London. In a terse confrontation, a church official blocked the Channel 4 News camera attempting to film Channel 4 News Chief Correspondent Alex Thomson asking Lord Green questions.

Hillsborough inquest: David Duckenfield gives evidence — David Duckenfield, who was match commander at Hillsborough on 15 April 1989, when 96 Liverpool fans died, gives evidence to the inquest into the disaster. Alex Thomson reports via Twitter.

'Tell the world: It was the Cossacks' who took this Ukrainian city — DEBALTSEVE, Ukraine - I suppose there is some comfort in that she can hear anything here except shelling. Comfort, too, perhaps that she can at least be here - above ground and still alive. Nadezheda, above ground after several weeks of hiding, is slowly stooping among wooden pallets, sacks of stinking rotting onions and potatoes.

Sudden and violent death on the front lines of Debaltseve in Ukraine — VUHLEHIRSK, Ukraine-He can barely walk. Long coat. Russian fur hat. A vodka nose and several days worth of stubble. But, yes, he remembers when the Wehrmacht and the Red Army pulverized these towns - and he has long since learned the lessons of war. He is immovable. "I am Victor - Victor Sergeyevich."

The reality of Ukraine cease-fire: An explosion every few seconds — HORLIVKA, Ukraine - Yuri was on the phone with his mother when the explosion from the shell blew off both his legs. "There was this flash and suddenly I just didn't understand anything," he said, lying in bed at Horlivka Hospital Two, wincing from pain as there is no access to proper painkillers.

Ukraine crisis: inside the ruins of Donetsk airport - video — Donetsk airport lies in ruins after being shattered by months of fighting between Ukrainians and separatists. This airport located in a pro-Russian city is contested by both sides.

Will closing three UK airbases help US save money? - video — The Pentagon announces that it is to withdraw from three of its UK air force bases as part of a reorganisation of forces aimed at saving half a billion dollars across Europe.
