Bournemouth were without Callum Wilson for the trip because of injury - and for all of their good attacking play early on, they missed their top scorer's clinical finishing. Brooks never managed to fully get the ball out from under his feet before striking the post and King scuffed his ninth-minute close-range shot a little, giving Pickford the chance to save.

Yellow vests: protesters fight for ideological ownership

Monday 19:05 GMT

As French yellow vests kicked off their ninth straight weekend of protests against President Emmanuel Macron’s economic policies, a battle for ownership of what has become an symbol of anti-government agitation across Europe has broken out in Britain as leftwing anti-austerity activists donned yellow in a bid to wrestle it from the far-right.

This explains the sometimes extreme violence seen in the Saturday gilets jaunes protests seen so far, which according to the prime minister, Édouard Philippe, who this week announced measures to crack down on the violence (though not legitimate protest), have so far seen 5,600 people arrested and 1,000 convicted.

Kamala Harris criticises those 'sowing hate' but stays quiet on presidential run

Tuesday 04:14 GMT

Kamala Harris, the junior Democratic senator from California, has told a sold-out theater in Los Angeles how she would govern – hypothetically – as president of the United States, portraying herself as an early advocate of criminal justice reform who stood up to big banks during the foreclosure crisis.

Harris, California’s attorney general from 2011 until she joined the US Senate in 2017, did not announce a run for the presidency, but she all but gave a presidential address, weaving her own her own personal biography – her mother, her husband and her children – into a liberal political platform.
