GOOGLE has been fined a whopping £3.8billion by the EU as part of a major probe into the tech giant. But what is the penalty for - and what did Donald Trump say about the charge? Here's what we know so far. Why did the EU fine Google? The fine is related to Google's abuse of its Android mobile phone software to get a leg-up over rivals, with the EU saying Google acted illegally.

ALL eyes were on Singapore as the historic meeting between Kim Jong-un and Donald Trump took place. But what did the two leaders discuss – and who attended the summit? What did Donald Trump and Kim Jong-un discuss at the Singapore summit? It was the first time a sitting US President has ever met a North Korean leader. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the US would only accept “complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation” – but would offer “unique” security guarantees, that would provide North Korea with “certainty… that denuclearisation is not something that ends badly for them”.
