Prime Minister Theresa May's EU withdrawal deal has been rejected by MPs for a second time, throwing her Brexit strategy into further confusion.
American writer and former president of Marvel Comics Stan Lee has died at the age of 95.
In 1961, Lee and Jack Kirby created The Fantastic Four for Marvel Comics and went on to create titles including Spider-Man and The Incredible Hulk.
Lee's wife, Joan, died in 2017 - also aged 95 - but he is survived by his daughter, JC Lee.
Speaking to celebrity news website TMZ, JC said her father was "the greatest, most decent man".
The legendary comic book author died at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Monday after a medical emergency, according to Variety magazine.
In recent years, Lee had periodically suffered from illnesses, including a bout of pneumonia, US media reported.
Bob Iger, chairman of the Walt Disney Company, which bought Marvel Comics for $4bn (£2.5bn) in 2009, called Lee "a super hero in his own right" in a statement.
"The scale of his imagination was only exceeded by the size of his heart."

The Library of Congress and US Copyright Office outlined the new set of exemptions to the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) in a "final rule" document (PDF) spanning 85 pages. In it are several new protections that legally allow consumers and repair shops to hack the firmware on devices like smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, mobile computing devices, and several other gadgets where technological protection measures (TPMs, but not the same as a Trusted Platform Module) stand between the consumer and a functioning product.

Solar panels unveiled at Chernobyl nuclear power site
Ukraine launches its first solar plant in the abandoned area around the former nuclear power station.
A new solar power plant has been built at the site of the former Chernobyl nuclear power station, The Chernobyl plant was the site of a catastrophic nuclear disaster in 1986, Radioactive material was released into the atmosphere across parts of Europe, leading to a rise in cases of thyroid cancer
The area around the plant is now part of an exclusion zone spanning 1,000 square miles (2,600 sq km), The Chernobyl plant was decommissioned and forced to close in 2000, Ukraine has now launched its first solar plant in the abandoned area around the former power station.
The country's government wants renewable energy companies to develop the abandoned land, The site will create enough energy to power around 2,000 households, However people will not be able to return to live in the evacuated zone for another 24,000 years, Ukrainian authorities say

I've been doing alot of work to bring HGN's forums up to standard with the latest technology.
Website is now running latest version of SMF. I have implemented bootstrap and used a fairly modern theme. There's still a fair amount of work to bring it up to scratch of where it needs to be but for now, it's at least up to date.
Update: Added back avatars on board, auto-videos, sub-forums, board icons, various fixes, https forced for security.
