New law would make it illegal for couples from different households to meet indoors for romantic encounters
A new proposed law will make it illegal for couples who live in different homes to meet for an indoor romantic liaision and then stay overnight during the coronavirus lockdown. The Government's Health Protection Regulations had previously banned people leaving home without “reasonable excuse”. However the new law which was laid before MPs on Monday said that “no person may participate in a gathering which takes place in a public or private place outdoors, and consists of more than six persons, or indoors, and consists of two or more persons”. It defined a "gathering" as "when two or more people are present together in the same place in order to engage in any form of social interaction with each other, or to undertake any other activity with each other". A separate provision made it illegal to stay overnight away from home “without reasonable excuse”, which could include moving home, work, attending funerals or providing care. Downing Street yesterday insisted on Monday that police would show "discretion" and "common sense" in enforcing the law. The proposed new law was reflected in new Government guidance yesterday which made clear that people cannot "cannot stay overnight away from your own home, except for in a limited set of circumstances, such as for work purposes". It added that guests at garden parties will be risking a £100 fine if they poke around the householder's shed or garage.

Independent autopsy reveals George Floyd died from 'asphyxiation' as lawyers call for first-degree murder charges
A medical examiner in Minnesota has classified George Floyd's death as a homicide, contradicting a preliminary report which found “nothing to support strangulation” as cause of death. Mr Floyd died after a police officer kneeled on his neck for more than eight minutes, despite his cries that he could not breathe. The African-American’s death, captured on video, has sparked protests in Minneapolis that have spread to dozens of cities around America. The Hennepin County Attorney's Office’s report, released on Monday, said Mr Floyd’s heart stopped as police restrained him and suppressed his neck, preventing him from being able to breathe. "Decedent experienced a cardiopulmonary arrest while being restrained by law enforcement officer(s)," the report read. Under "other significant conditions" it said Mr Floyd suffered from heart disease and hypertension, and listed fentanyl intoxication and recent methamphetamine use.

Carrie Ann Inaba and Tom Bergeron help take a look back at the drama-filled first season of the popular reality competition series.
A day after arriving at the International Space Station on SpaceX's Crew Dragon capsule, NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken laid claim to a U.S. flag that symbolizes America's capability to send people to orbit from U.S. soil. The handkerchief-sized flag, sealed in a plastic envelope, has been kept aboard the space station since 2011, when NASA's final space shuttle crew left it behind before making their departure aboard Atlantis. It was displayed above the Harmony module's hatch — and, for a time, stored in an equipment bag, nearly forgotten — with instructions that it was to be taken… Read More
