    Media captionWhile reporting on a conference about the harassment of women, BBC reporter Sarah Teale was harassed Harassment of women is to be recorded as a hate crime in a bid to tackle sexist abuse.Nottinghamshire Police said it would expand its categories to include misogynistic incidents.It means abuse or harassment which might not be a crime can be reported to and investigated by the police and support for the victim put in place.Nottingham Women's Centre said it hopes it will help give more victims the courage to report incidents.Chief Constable Sue Fish claimed it will make the county a safer place for women.

                    If a woman receives unwanted attention on the street, it can now be reported to Nottinghamshire Police as a hate crime
               
            "What women face, often on a daily basis, is absolutely unacceptable and can be extremely distressing," she said."Nottinghamshire Police is committed to taking misogynistic hate crime seriously and encourages anyone who is affected by it to contact us without hesitation."Work on the idea first started with the Nottinghamshire Safer for Women Conference last year, co-hosted by the police with the Nottingham Women's Centre.                                                                                                    BBC TV reporter Sarah Teale was harassed in the street while reporting on the conference.'Violence and intimidation'The force defines misogyny hate crime as: "Incidents against women that are motivated by an attitude of a man towards a woman and includes behaviour targeted towards a woman by men simply because they are a woman."The classification now means people can report incidents which might not be considered to be a crime and the police will investigate.Nottingham Women's Centre has been helping train call centre, force control staff and officers on the beat to recognise misogynistic hate crime and ways to tackle it.These officers will also examine if and how a victim can be supported or if anything can be done to help prevent them being targeted again.Domestic abuse will not be recorded as a misogyny hate crime because it has its own procedure, the force said.Melanie Jeffs, centre manager at Nottingham Women's Centre, said: "We're pleased to see Nottinghamshire Police recognise the breadth of violence and intimidation that women experience on a daily basis in our communities."She added: "Recording this as a hate crime will give us a detailed picture of how often, when and where it is happening. It has been very difficult to build that picture before but we will now get detailed data to analyse."Showing that the police take it seriously will also give people the confidence to come forward and report offences."What is hate crime?A crime that the victim or any other person perceives to be motivated by hostility or prejudice towards any aspect of a person's identity.Police forces in England, Wales and Northern Ireland annually monitor five strands of hate crime:Disability
Gender identity
Race, ethnicity or nationality
Religion, faith or belief
Sexual orientation
Forces can include their own definition of a hate crime with several recently adding sub cultures.

        Volkswagen's failure to compensate UK owners of cars affected by the emissions scandal as they are US owners is "deeply unfair", MPs have said.UK owners can get affected diesel vehicles repaired, but in the US they can also claim up to $10,000 (£7,400).The Transport Select Committee also said the government had been too slow to investigate whether VW should be prosecuted in the UK for the scandal.The government insisted it was pushing the firm "to ensure they take action".Louise Ellman, the Labour MP who chairs the committee, said VW had "acted cynically" to cheat emissions tests.
   
       
"Volkswagen's evidence to us was just not credible but the government has lacked the will to hold VW accountable for its actions," she said.Analysis: Richard Westcott, BBC transport correspondentAlong with all the detail about VW, this report also highlights an issue raised recently by the BBC.                                                                                                    It talks about evidence that other carmakers have misled regulators or taken advantage of loopholes in the regulations on a "substantial scale".Basically, the rules allow manufacturers to downgrade or switch off emissions cleaning systems at certain times to protect the engine.Testing figures suggest some are doing it when the outside temperature falls below about 17C outside, which is most of the year in Britain.They justify it by saying cold weather can damage components, but the suspicion is it gives them more miles to the gallon.It means the car is potentially more polluting than it needs to be, and we're talking millions of vehicles here."There is a real danger that VW will be able to get away with cheating emissions tests in Europe if regulators do not act."The German giant will offer to repair or buy back the affected diesel vehicles in the US and pay owners between $5,000 and $10,000 in compensation.But in the UK owners affected have only been offered the option of a repair.The select committee called on regulators to ensure owners were not left out of pocket by VW's technical solution, which it said was developed as cheaply as possible.'Unacceptable actions'Ms Ellman said: "Vehicle owners have been refused goodwill payments. That is despite VW inflicting a great deal of uncertainty on its own customers, along with the prospect of declining residual values and the inconvenience of having to undergo repairs."A Department for Transport (DfT) spokesman said it had taken VW's "unacceptable actions extremely seriously", adding: "We continue to push VW to ensure they take action."Volkswagen said it had contacted all 200,000 UK owners affected by the issue and advised them to take their cars to their closest dealer."Close to 50,000 vehicles in the UK have now received the technical measure, a number which will continue to increase as further vehicles' technical measures are developed, rigorously tested and then approved by the relevant transport authorities," a VW spokesman said.

        The MPs also said that the DfT failed to seek stricter emissions limits in new tests that will include real-world driving."We are concerned that manufacturers have far too great a say over how type approval reforms are implemented," Ms Ellman added.The DfT spokesman said the Real Driving Emissions test being introduced next year was "robust and will make a real difference".VW admitted last September that 482,000 of its diesel vehicles in the US were fitted with defeat device software to switch engines to a cleaner mode while they were being tested.It said that almost 1.2 million vehicles in the UK were affected, but disputed whether the software constituted a defeat device in the European Union.In May the company more than doubled its provisions for the diesel emissions scandal to €16.2bn (£12.6bn).

    Media captionThe boiler house at the power station was brought down shortly after 06:00 BSTSearch efforts for three men killed in the Didcot power station collapse are set to resume after the remainder of the boiler house was demolished.A remote demolition brought down the decommissioned site at about 06:00 BST in a unique operation using remote-controlled robots.Ken Cresswell, 57, and John Shaw, 61, and Chris Huxtable, 34, were trapped under rubble on 23 February.The body of Michael Collings, 53, of Teesside, was recovered. The building - which was due for demolition when it partially collapsed - had been too unstable to be approached afterwards.
   
       
BBC News correspondent Amanda Dellor, who is at the scene, said she has been told the recovery could begin as early as this afternoon.The charges went off one minute after six and the building came down "very quickly", covering the entire site in a dust cloud, she said.Families of the missing men were watching from within the boundary of the power station.                                                                                                    RWE Npower, which owns the site, said the demolition had "gone as planned".

                    The search for Ken Cresswell and John Shaw, of Rotherham, and Chris Huxtable, of Swansea, can now resume
               
            Thames Valley Police said recovery work would restart once it was safe to access the site. The search was halted in May when contractors reached a 50m (164ft) exclusion zone, beyond which is was considered too dangerous to continue.At the scene, Amanda Dellor, BBC NewsA small crowd gathered to watch the controlled demolition from Ladygrove Mound, around a mile from Didcot Power Station. Just after 6am one large bang was heard, followed by several smaller ones, and the building came down in a matter of seconds. A blanket of dark grey dust covered the entire site and the famous cooling towers were hidden for several minutes. Last night, I spoke to one family member who told me that they just wanted everything to go to plan today and that they would quickly get to the men. They just want the men returned back to their families and back home.RWE Npower said contractors could be on site as early as this afternoon to start clearing the debris.The families of the three men yet to be recovered had opposed plans to use explosives for the demolition.Ken Cresswell and John Shaw were both from Rotherham, while Chris Huxtable was from Swansea.Steve Hall, son-in-law of Mr Cresswell, previously said: "We want the men back in one piece, not many pieces."Roland Alford, the explosives contractor at the power station, said the four-month delay in completing the demolition was necessary on safety grounds. He added: "It was almost unthinkable to send people to work underneath there and place charges, given the fact the building could come down at any moment - you legally can't justify that."

        Coal-fired Didcot A Power Station was turned off in 2013, after 43 years in service.It included six cooling towers, measuring 375ft (114m) in height, of which three were demolished in the early hours of 27 July 2014.A gas-burning power station - known as Didcot B - opened in 1997 on the site and continues to operate.A major fire was declared at Didcot B in October 2014, with 20 fire crews sent to tackle the blaze at its peak. The cause was later confirmed as an electrical fault.Further demolition work took place at Didcot A, until a major incident was declared on 23 February when part of a the boiler house collapsed, killing four demolition workers.

                    Gavin Long was a frequent user of social media
               
            The man identified as the killer of three US police officers in Baton Rouge had posted videos complaining at police treatment of African Americans and urging them to "fight back".One of Gavin Long's videos stresses he is not linked to any group but is "affiliated with justice".The ex-Marine, 29, was killed by police during the attack on Sunday morning.Tension has been high since police shot dead a black man in Baton Rouge two weeks ago.That death - and a second police shooting in Minnesota - sparked protests across the United States and triggered a revenge attack by a black army veteran who shot dead five officers in the city of Dallas.
   
       
Responding to the latest killings, President Barack Obama called upon all Americans to unite and refrain from divisive language.Who is the gunman?
What we know of the shootings
How often are US police killed on duty?
More details have emerged about Gavin Long, who was from Kansas City, Missouri, including his service history.A Marine from August 2005 until August 2010, he rose to the rank of sergeant and served in Iraq from June 2008 until January 2009, earning a number of medals and commendations. He received an honourable discharge.                                                                                                    His video and online postings used the pseudonym Cosmo Setepenra. He rails against what he sees as injustices against black people, at one point saying "you gotta fight back".In one video, posted on YouTube, Long says that should "anything happen" to him, he was "not affiliated" with any group.
           
    Media captionAn ABC reporter describes the scene near where the shootings took place"I'm affiliated with the spirit of justice, nothing more nothing less. I thought my own thoughts, I made my own decisions," he said.One website called "convoswithcosmo" says he has travelled to Dallas in the wake of the killing of the police officers there.In a 10 July video apparently posted from Dallas, he says only violence and financial pressure will bring about change. "We know what it's going to take. It's only fighting back or money. That's all they care about.

                    The last tweet on the Convos With Cosmo Twitter page, on Saturday
               
            "Revenue and blood, revenue and blood, revenue and blood. Nothing else."Other postings rail against white and Asian people, and "Arabs and Indians".One tweet last week says: 'Violence is not THE answer (its a answer), but at what point do you stand up so that your people dont become the Native Americans...EXTINCT?"Sunday's attack reportedly took place on Long's birthday. It is unclear why Long was in Baton Rouge.Police had responded to reports of a man dressed in black holding a rifle behind a store. They are investigating whether an emergency call lured the officers there.The exchange of fire lasted about eight minutes. Mayor Kip Holden said it was an "ambush-style" attack.

                    Police are investigating whether officers were lured by an emergency call
               
            Col Mike Edmonson, of the Louisiana State Police, said the gunman was believed to have acted alone.The dead officers were named as Montrell Jackson, 32, and Matthew Gerald, 41, of the Baton Rouge police department, and Sheriff's Deputy Brad Garafola, 45. All three men had families.Another officer is in critical condition.It has emerged that just days before the attack Montrell Jackson posted an emotional message on Facebook about how hard it was to be a black police officer in Baton Rouge.

    Media captionBarack Obama: 'Attacks on police are an attack on all of us'
           
    Media captionLouisiana Governor John Bel Edwards: "The violence and hatred has to stop"Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards told a news conference it was an "absolutely unspeakable, heinous attack".Mayor Holden told local media the "rhetoric from some people" after the death of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge could be connected to the shootings."Everything's been anti-police," he said, but he insisted the "overwhelming number of people in Baton Rouge" were "not buying into their rhetoric".

    Media captionSimilarities can be heard when a section of the speech is comparedDonald Trump's wife, Melania, took centre stage on the first day of the Republican National Convention but faced accusations that a portion of her speech plagiarised Michelle Obama.Commentators noticed similarities with Mrs Obama's 2008 convention speech.Mrs Trump's speech also praised her husband as a "compassionate" man who would "fight for the country".It was her first speech of the campaign and she had the help of a speechwriting team.Mr Trump's communications adviser Jason Miller issued a statement saying: "In writing her beautiful speech, Melania's team of writers took notes on her life's inspirations, and in some instances included fragments that reflected her own thinking.
   
       
"Melania's immigrant experience and love for America shone through in her speech, which made it such a success."Meanwhile Mr Trump himself described her speech as "absolutely incredible".How the speeches compare

        In a section, Mrs Trump said: "My parents impressed on me the values that you work hard for what you want in life; that your word is your bond and you do what you say and keep your promise; that you treat people with respect."                                                                                                    Mrs Obama's speech in 2008 carried the lines: "And Barack and I were raised with so many of the same values: that you work hard for what you want in life; that your word is your bond and you do what you say you're going to do; that you treat people with dignity and respect, even if you don't know them, and even if you don't agree with them."Mrs Trump's speech continued: "[My parents] taught me to show the values and morals in my daily life. That is the lesson that I continue to pass along to our son. And we need to pass those lessons on to the many generations to follow, because we want our children in this nation to know that the only limit to your achievements is the strength of your dreams and your willingness to work for them."Mrs Obama said: "And Barack Obama and I set out to build lives guided by these values, and pass them on to the next generations. Because we want our children, and all children in this nation, to know that the only limit to the height of your achievement is the reach of your dreams and your willingness to work for them."The Slovenian-born former model had used the speech to portray her husband as a tough but compassionate unifying force."He's tough when he has to be but he's also kind and fair and caring," Mrs Trump said."The kindness is not always noted, but it's there for all to see. That is one reason I fell in love with him to begin with."Mrs Trump has kept a lower profile compared with other spouses of major candidates. The Trumps' adult children have often been more prominent.Analysis - The BBC's Jasmine Coleman in Cleveland

        It seemed to go so well for Melania Trump - she had delegates on their feet at the start and cheering wildly in approval by the end.But hours later, as her words spread on social media, attention turned to the authenticity of her speech - and to the words of another aspiring First Lady.What Republican delegates will make of the associations with Michelle and Barack Obama - so vehemently hated by so many Trump supporters - will undoubtedly feature in discussions over the coming days in Cleveland.But then Trump's supporters are now so accustomed to defending their man from accusations in the media, they could still put this all down to another conspiracy against him.Mrs Trump's mostly personal speech contrasted with the night's other speakers who spoke about "making America safe again"."If you want someone to fight for you and your country, I can assure you, he is the guy," Mrs Trump said.A wide range of speakers, including a county sheriff and a decorated combat veteran, told stories of military service, urban crime and the dangers of illegal immigration.

                    Mr Trump praised his wife, but some were less impressed
               
            Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton took aim at presumptive Democratic nominee State Hillary Clinton, questioning her judgement in foreign affairs."Who would trust Hillary Clinton to protect them?" said Mr Giuliani, whose rousing speech fired up the crowd at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio. "I wouldn't."Many Republican party leaders - such as Ohio Governor John Kasich whose state is hosting the convention - have decided not to attend this year's festivities, turned off by Mr Trump's controversial stances on immigration and foreign policy.Mr Trump has called for a ban on Muslims entering the US and also advocated deporting almost 11 million undocumented immigrants.

            A speech by Wisconsin police sheriff David Clarke strongly defended police officers in the wake of the deadly shooting in Baton Rouge, which killed three officers over the weekend."Blue lives matter!" Mr Clarke said to huge cheers from the delegates in the convention hall.The killings prompted Mr Trump to say the country was falling apart - a claim strongly disputed by President Barack Obama.Earlier, anti-Trump delegates failed in their final push to block Mr Trump's nomination.Republican unity frays as convention opens

                    Anti-Trump delegates failed in their last efforts to nominate another candidate
               
            The vote that would have allowed delegates to back a candidate of their choice was quashed when three states reportedly backed out.Some said the Republican Party officials had sabotaged their efforts on purpose.The push was the last gasp for those who hope to see a different Republican candidate get the nomination.A convention - all you need to know
           
    Media captionWhat's the point of a party convention anyway?1. What's the point? Each party formally nominates its candidates for president and vice president, and the party unveils its party platform, or manifesto. 2. Who is going? There are 2,472 delegates attending, selected at state and congressional district conventions, and representing each US state and territory. Plus 15,000 journalists and thousands of other party grandees, lawmakers and guests.3. Who isn't going? Some senior figures who don't like Donald Trump have stayed away, including two ex-presidents named Bush, former nominee Mitt Romney and Ohio Governor John Kasich.4. What's the schedule? Tuesday - House Speaker Paul Ryan, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie
Wednesday - VP nominee Mike Pence
Thursday - Donald Trump, introduced by daughter Ivanka

    Media captionPolice confirmed three people had died during the incidentPolice are searching the area around a tower block in Aberdeen where a woman and two men died in a disturbance.Officers are investigating whether one of the men fell from a 12th floor balcony of the 19-storey Donside Court, in the Tillydrone area of the city.Emergency services were called to the building at about 20:15 on Tuesday evening. Police Scotland said it believed the incident was contained and there was not a threat to the wider community.A blue forensics tent had been erected inside a police cordon at the foot of the building, close to the main entrance.

                    A blue forensics tent has been erected outside the 19-storey tower block
               
            An eyewitness said they saw a man fall from the 12th floor of the building, which police confirmed they were pursuing as a line of inquiry.Another witness, Toni Dey, 19, who lives a short distance away in Gordon's Mills Road, said she heard screaming from the block.The mother of two said: "I heard some girl screaming 'Help me, help me', then about 10 minutes after I heard loads of screaming and shouting.                                                                                                    "I didn't call the police as I thought it was kids messing around, then I heard loads of police. "It's very scary to think that something like that had happened. All I kept thinking was 'Why was that poor girl shouting help me?', and about a two-minute walk out my back door."I just moved in here in May and it's been so quiet. I was shocked to hear anything as I never normally do."'Early stages'Another woman told BBC Scotland that she had known one of the men involved, describing him as a "nice boy".Det Supt Dave McLaren said further information about the incident would be released in due course."At this time the investigation is in its very early stages," he said."However, the circumstances as they present at this time would indicate that this is a contained incident and we are not looking for any other person in relation to the deaths."Police dismissed reports on social media that a police officer had been injured and said there was no suggestion the incident was terrorism-related.

                    Police search teams are examining the area around the building
               
            Neighbour Susan Smith said police initially went up to the flat carrying what looked like a battering ram."There were loads and loads of police cars. I've never seen so many police cars. Four ambulance vans," she said."They took a lassie out and they were still trying to give the guy CPR. Then they put a tent up and the next thing forensics arrived. "The police actually went in with a great thing like a battering ram at one point. Then they went in with stretchers and a chair thing - and came out with them empty."  Councillor Martin Greig, chairman of Aberdeen Community Safety Partnership, said: "There will be families grieving profoundly at this terrible news."Our sympathies are with those who have lost loved ones."The local community and the city will share feelings of shock at this violent incident."

        The boss of Easyjet says the airline has seen its costs increase by £40m ($53m; €48m) in just four weeks, as a result of the pound's drop in the wake of Britain's vote to leave the EU.Carolyn McCall told the BBC the drop had made fuel - which the firm pays for in US dollars - more expensive. She added that the increased cost of travelling abroad is deterring some British holidaymakers.Sterling has lost more than 10% of its value against the dollar since Brexit.Ms McCall's comments came as Easyjet released its quarterly results, which warned that the company is earning less from each passenger.
   
       
Although passenger numbers have been rising - up to 20.2 million - extreme weather, air traffic control strikes and terrorist attacks have all contributed to the drop of almost 8% in "revenue per seat", a key measure watched closely by investors.
           
    Media captionEasyjet CEO Carolyn McCall explains why Brexit and terror attacks have affected businessAn "extraordinary number of external events" were to blame, Ms McCall said, "from Sharm el-Sheikh, Paris, Brussels and most recently, Nice and Turkey".Easyjet's shares have dropped by more than 3% in London on the news.'Good news'                                                                                                    But the chief executive argued that the drop in revenues was beneficial to customers."It is worth pointing out that although every airline is having a tough time, it is very good news for passengers," she told the BBC's Today programme."It actually means it's cheaper to fly and ticket prices are low".The devaluation of the pound since the Brexit vote has also had an impact on "consumer confidence", or whether people feel compelled to book flights and holidays, she continued."If you are a passenger, you are reading every day in the papers that it is more expensive to spend money on holiday," Ms McCall said, although she added that demand would probably "normalise over next few months".Ms McCall also confirmed that the airline would not be following rivals such as Wizz Air in scaling back from the UK market as a result of Brexit."We see opportunity," she said."We will continue to grow in the UK."'No new HQ'Easyjet has also confirmed that it is unlikely to move any staff out of its Luton headquarters, regardless of the result of Brexit negotiations.While it would prefer that the UK government ensure airlines can continue to fly across Europe under existing pre-Brexit agreements, in the event that the firm has to obtain a new operating certificate from the EU, it will use existing staff in European countries to do so.The certificate is of prime importance to Easyjet, as almost 50% of its passengers never touch down in the UK. The airline is a major player in countries such as France, The Netherlands and Switzerland.
