Former Respect MP George Galloway objects to questions put to him over his role in the EU referendum. The London mayoral candidate said the questioning by Jo Coburn on the Daily Politics was indicative of a “childish discourse” in the EU referendum campaign, focusing on personalities rather than policies.
Querying when the interview would move on to substantial differences of opinion between the camps, he said: “Every question you have asked has been about me.”

Prostate cancer laser treatment 'truly transformative' – BBC News



Surgeons have described a new treatment for early stage prostate cancer as “truly transformative”. The approach, tested across Europe, uses lasers and a drug made from deep sea bacteria to eliminate tumours, but without causing severe side effects.
Trials on 413 men – published in The Lancet Oncology – showed nearly half of them had no remaining trace of cancer.

David Cameron: Palace ‘displeasure’ at former PM – BBC News



Buckingham Palace has expressed displeasure after the former Prime Minister David Cameron revealed that he sought the Queen’s help during the Scottish independence referendum campaign. In a BBC documentary, Mr Cameron said that in 2014 he had asked if the Queen could intervene because he was concerned Scotland was going to vote for independence. The Queen later urged people to ‘think very carefully’ about the future.

Another former Conservative Prime Minister is also in the spotlight, as Sir John Major’s lawyers tell the Supreme Court that the current PM, Boris Johnson, was ‘dishonest’ about his reasons for suspending Parliament. Mr Johnson says progress is being made in Brexit talks with the EU.

BBC News at Ten’s coverage with Royal Correspondent Nicholas Witchell, Home Editor Mark Easton, and Europe Editor Katya Adler.
