PIERS Morgan has slammed a 'sickening woke campaign' that turned Snow White's Prince Charming into a 'predator'. The former Good Morning Britain presenter , 56, fumed about the row over the iconic kiss from the Disney movie - which campaigners claim was "without consent." A theme park in Anaheim, California is welcoming visitors for the first time since before the covid-19 pandemic began and it came under fire due to its revamped Snow White ride.

British steel exports to the EU have plunged by a third in a fresh blow to the industry, experts revealed today. Shipments from the UK to the bloc dipped to just under 420,000 tonnes in the first three months of the year as the sector grappled with the Prime Minister's Brexit deal. In contrast, the quarter one average of steel sent to the EU for the years 2015 to 2017 was 630,000 tonnes. A separate analysis of exported steel products – excluding tubes, wire and cold finished bars – showed a 38% drop in the first three months of 2021 compared with the 2015-2017 average, a 39% fall against 2018 data and a 34% decrease compared with 2019.
