    When Andrea Gaylord was forced to evacuate the devastating Camp Fire in Northern California in November, she couldn't get back home to take her dog Madison with her to safety as the fires spread. The evacuation order was lifted nearly a month after it was instated in Paradise, California, and Gaylord was beside herself to see Madison waiting for her as she pulled up to her burned down property, Gaylord told the ABC 10 news. Madison miraculously survived the Camp Fire that tore through Northern California throughout November, killing 85 people, displacing thousands, and leaving many, including Gaylord, homeless.

  • Yellow vests protests are 'a catastrophe for our economy' warns French finance minister

    Golocal247.com news

    The French finance minister warned that France’s worst street protests in decades were “an economic disaster” as burned out cars and debris were cleared from the streets of Paris and other cities on Sunday. “It’s a catastrophe for trade. It’s a catastrophe for our economy,” said Bruno Le Maire, a conservative serving under Emmanuel Macron, the embattled centrist president who came to power last year promising to modernise France with sweeping pro-business reforms. Mr Le Maire promised that the state and insurance companies would foot the repair bill. Tax payments due at the end of the year will be postponed for retailers whose shops were ransacked only two weeks before Christmas, he said. Dozens of cars were torched in Paris on Saturday as protesters roared “Macron resign”. Clashes also broke out in Marseille, Bordeaux, Lyon and Toulouse during the fourth consecutive weekend of protests. Tourism has suffered a blow, with Paris hotel bookings over Christmas and New Year, normally a busy period, down by at least 20 per cent.  Yellow vest protesters clash with police in Paris, in pictures Emmanuel Grégoire, deputy mayor of Paris, said the damage to property was worse than in the previous weekend’s riots. “The protests spread over a much larger area, so many more places were hit,” he said.  But there was less violence thanks to an increase in police numbers and more efficient tactics. Officers swiftly detained hooligans, arresting more than 1,700, a record for a single day in post-war France. Jean-Yves Le Drian, the foreign minister, rebuked Donald Trump for a provocative tweet in which he appeared to back the protesters and claimed they were chanting his name on the streets of Paris. Telegraph reporters, placed across the city, heard no such chants. “We do not take part in domestic American politics and we want that to be reciprocated,” Mr Le Drian said.  Thousands of protesters continued blockading petrol stations and barricaded roads across the country on Sunday. Thomas Lebrun, a 62-year-old pensioner demonstrating near Vierzon, in central France, said: “We won’t stop until our demands are met. We want action not words.” The increasingly unpopular president is expected to make a televised address to the nation on Monday or Tuesday. Under fire for remaining silent for the past week, Mr Macron’s approval ratings have plunged to record lows of below 20 per cent. With critics accusing him of being arrogant and remote, he faces an enormous challenge in trying to win back public support amid the most serious unrest since students and workers rioted in May 1968.  He has already scrapped increases in “green” taxes on fuel, but the protesters want further concessions such as tax cuts for people on low incomes and tax increases for businesses.  Such measures would mark a humiliating U-turn for the president, who has been trying to attract foreign investors and entice banks and finance companies to relocate from London to Paris by offering tax breaks. Benjamin Griveaux, the government spokesman, warned: “All the problems of the ‘yellow vests’ can’t be settled by waving a magic wand.” But he added that Mr Macron would make “important announcements”. According to French media, he may raise the minimum wage and pensions, and  introduce a tax-free bonus for workers on low incomes.   The “yellow-vest” movement, which takes its name from the high-visibility jackets worn by demonstrators, began as a  protest against fuel tax increases four weeks ago. It has since widened to encompass a range of demands such as 40-per-cent increases in the minimum wage and benefits, and the re-introduction of a wealth tax on high earners, scrapped by Mr Macron as part of a drive to promote investment. French intelligence is investigating claims that the movement, which began on social media, spread with the help of Russian trolls. Hundreds of social media accounts linked to Russia allegedly played a role in spreading disinformation, but officials said no evidence of Russian state involvement had been uncovered so far.

  • Body found in hunt for missing British backpacker in New Zealand 

    Golocal247.com news

    A body has been found by detectives searching for British backpacker Grace Millane near Auckland. Det Insp Beard said investigators had "located a body which we believe to be Grace". The 22-year-old from Wickford in Essex had not been seen since last Saturday. "The formal identification process will now take place, however based on the evidence we have gathered over the past few days we expect that this is Grace," said Mr Beard at a press conference near the scene. "Obviously this brings the search for Grace to an end. It is an unbearable time for the Millane family and our hearts go out to them." Ms Millane's brother, Declan, posted an emotional tribute to his sister on Instagram, writing "you are my sunshine, my only sunshine" underneath pictures of the pair together.  View this post on Instagram ��♥️You are my sunshine, my only sunshine You make me happy when skies are gray You'll never know, dear, how much I love you Please don't take my sunshine away A post shared by Declan Millane (@declan_millane) on Dec 9, 2018 at 2:16am PST A suspect is in custody and is expected to be charged with murder on Monday. He is due to appear at Auckland District Court. The 26-year-old man was questioned by detectives after he was traced by police to an address in central Auckland on Saturday afternoon. The announcement follows a review of CCTV footage, the forensic examination of a hotel where Millane was last seen on Saturday 1 December, and the discovery of a vehicle. Millane was last seen entering the four-star CityLife Hotel at 9.41pm with a man. Before the CityLife Hotel footage emerged, the last confirmed sighting of Ms Millane had been CCTV of her dressed for a night out as she left the Sky City casino complex at 7.15pm. She was wearing a pink £5,000 prize draw wristband, suggesting she planned to return to the casino, just a few minutes from the hotel. Millane's family have been left "devastated" by the development, Auckland City Police Detective Inspector Scott Beard said. Police released a CCTV image (left) showing Miss Millane at the CityLife Hotel in Auckland on Saturday evening. Her family say it is very out of character for her not to stay in contact Credit: Auckland City Police "Sadly the evidence we have gathered to this point in the inquiry has established that this is a homicide," he told an earlier press conference. "Grace's family have been advised of this development and they are devastated." DI Beard added: "Obviously this means we are treating Grace's disappearance as a homicide investigation. We still do not know where Grace is. We are determined to find her and return her to her family." David Millane, her father, arrived in New Zealand on Friday morning and had fought back tears as he described his "lovely, outgoing, fun-loving, family-oriented daughter". He said she typically “bombarded” the family with messages and photographs. Miss Millane, who completed a degree in advertising and marketing at Lincoln University, was on a yearlong trip and arrived in New Zealand on Nov 20 after a four-week group tour to Peru. Her family raised concerns after she failed to make contact for several days, including on her 22nd birthday last Sunday. The scene outside the CityLife Hotel on Friday Credit: Hannah Peters/Getty Images Investigators have been examining the scene at the hotel complex where Ms Millane was last seen with a "male companion". Searches have also been carried out at the backpackers' accommodation where she was staying. Earlier on Saturday police released images of her necklace and watch and urged anyone who recognised the items to come forward. "Several of her belongings, including her passport, are missing and police believe it is likely that Grace has these items with her," DI Beard said. On Friday Mr Millane, a property developer, appealed to anybody who had seen or spoken to his daughter to provide details – “no matter how small” - to police. “We are all extremely upset, and it's very difficult at this time to fully describe the range of emotions we are going through," he said. Ms Millane was staying at the Base Backpackers hostel and was last seen by her roommates there on Saturday. Her brother Declan Millane said most of her belongings had been left at the hostel.
