British Airways passengers can now buy a discounted Covid-19 test kit to take abroad, which they can use ahead of their return to the UK.

However, British Airways is offering discounted antigen kits from Qured for £33, which passengers can buy before they travel. Passengers can order the kits to their UK address, which are designed to be portable so passengers can take them abroad. They can then schedule a video call with one of Qured's professional health advisors for when it's time to administer the test, so that they can be guided through the process and check that it's done correctly.

A GIRL of nine died under the wheels of a goods train in a freak accident on the way to buy sweets for her birthday with her dad. The horror was filmed by a street CCTV camera in the small town of Zaozyorny in central Russia last week. In the footage, the father is seen leading his daughter across the tracks as a train approaches. They can be seen hurrying across the rails and reaching safety. The man makes then several steps walking the girl away from the tracks but appears to changes his mind and come back. Further footage shows him walking his daughter next to the rails, holding her by the hand. The locomotive then hits the father, who is knocked to the ground and drags his daughter down with him. She finds herself lying on the snow, and an instant later is sucked under the wheels by the air flow. The footage ends with the man crawling away from the moving train.

The Malawi Election Commission declared him the victor on Saturday with a dominant 58.57% of the vote ahead of incumbent President Peter Mutharika.

Trainer Gordon Elliott was this week banned from running horses in Britain in response to a shocking viral photo. The 42-year-old was pictured sitting on top of a dead horse smiling and making a two-fingered ‘peace’ sign, which has led to various repercussions. The British Horseracing Authority said Elliott cannot run horses here while an investigation by the Irish Horseracing Regulatory Board (IHRB) is ongoing. A BHA spokesperson said: "The decision to refuse to allow horses trained by Mr Elliott to run in Britain is therefore an interim decision which the BHA regards as proportionate in these circumstances. "In an earlier statement, the BHA said it was appalled by the image which undermined its values of respecting and caring for horses." Elliott's record at the Cheltenham Festival He has 32 winners to his name at the meeting and was crowned top trainer in 2017 and 2018.
