Greek coast guards fire into sea near migrant boat

Footage has emerged of Greek coast guards firing into the sea near a migrant dingy, and shoving it around, as they attempted to force it back towards Turkey.

Migrants on another dinghy were met with shouts of "go away" by angry residents of the island of Lesbos.

UK supermarkets draw up plan to 'feed the nation' as coronavirus spreads

British supermarkets have drawn up “feed the nation” contingency plans that would help the country cope with any panic-buying brought on by a sudden escalation of the coronavirus outbreak.

Under the plans, supermarkets would work with suppliers to scale back the variety of foods and groceries available, and instead focus on maintaining supplies of staple products.
