GPS fail on bus sends Belgian tourists on 1,200km detour

A group of Belgian tourists were sent on a detour of close to 1,200km (800 miles) after a GPS navigation error by their bus driver.

They were meant to arrive at the French alpine resort of La Plagne for a skiing holiday.

Instead, they ended up hundreds of kilometres away, close to France's border with Spain.

The aspiring skiers eventually arrived in the Alps a day later - and were greeted with plates of Spanish food.

"There are three entries for La Plagne in France, and I selected the wrong one," the driver told Studio Brussel radio station.

Most Greek MPs choose to have a taxpayer-funded car

Less than 50 of Parliament’s 300 deputies refused the privilege of a complimentary car that they are entitled to as elected MPs but which Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras had exhorted them to reject during his presentation of the government’s policy program.

The budget set aside for MPs’ complimentary cars this year is 3.2 million euros.

In previous years even fewer MPs – only around 30 or 35 – had refused state cars.
