Carrie Herrington worked full time from 9-6pm in experiential marketing whilst also working on ITV’s Jackpot 247 up to three times a week for six years.

TOKYO: The dollar stayed under modest pressure on Friday ahead of a key U.S. jobs report that could cement expectations of a strong economic recovery and fan investor appetite for stocks, higher-yielding currencies and commodities. The dollar's index against six other major currencies stood near its lowest level so far this week, at 90.868, having lost about 0.4per cent overnight. As the dollar is softer against most currencies, the euro outshone many others, having gained 0.5per cent on Thursday to trade at US$1.2063.

A plastic surgeon posted “before and after” pictures of a patient’s breasts on Instagram – without asking her permission. The woman, who was clearly identifiable by her necklace and belly piercing, was horrified when she spotted the photos online.

The General Medical Council was told: “She desperately wanted them taken down. “She was extremely embarrassed as before her surgery, she would not even let her partner see her without a bra and would never consent to pictures being used on the internet.” Egyptian Dr El Gawad, who began his career in 1995, was handed a warning by the … [Read more...] about Plastic surgeon posts before-and-after boob job pics on Instagram without permission

Thousands of wind turbines have been erected both onshore and offshore, on sites that have been heralded as the bedrock of the UK's bid to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
