Sea level rise over past century unmatched in 6,000 years, says study 13 Oct 2014 The rise in sea levels seen over the past century is unmatched by any period in the past 6,000 years, according to a lengthy analysis of historical sea level trends. The reconstruction of 35,000 years of sea level fluctuations finds that there is no evidence that levels changed by more than 20cm in a relatively steady period that lasted between 6,000 years ago and about 150 years ago. This makes the past century extremely unusual in the historical record, with about a 20cm rise in global sea levels since the start of the 20th century.

Panic at London hospital after suspected Ebola patient arrives at A&E --Came on same day as high-profile NHS drill in how to respond to outbreak 13 Oct 2014 A London hospital was totally unprepared when a suspected Ebola patient walked into A&E, it was claimed today.

The man - who was later found not to have the virus - was not transferred to the specialist Royal Free Hospital, which is the only hospital in Britain equipped with a fully 'Ebola-proof' isolation unit.

Security services monitoring 'thousands' of terrorism suspects in London, says Boris Johnson --'The security services are involved in thousands of operations.' 10 Oct 2014 The security services are monitoring "thousands" of terrorist suspects in London, Boris Johnson has disclosed, suggesting the threat from 'Islamist extremists' may be far greater than has previously been admitted.

But the Mayor of London suggested the threat from home-grown terrorist plots was far more widespread than the relatively small numbers of extremists who have gone abroad to fight.
