The graves of World War I British soldiers during a ceremony to commemorate the centenary of the Battle of the Somme, in Thiepval, northern France on June 30, 2016Prince William on Thursday paid tribute to a generation lost at the Battle of the Somme, 100 years after the deadliest battle in British history. "We lost the flower of a generation and in the years to come it sometimes seemed that with them a sense of vital optimism had disappeared for ever from British life," William said at a ceremony in northern France. "It was in many ways the saddest day in the long story of our nation," he added, speaking on the eve of the 100th anniversary of the start of the World War I battle in which some 20,000 British soldiers died on the first day alone.

The leader of Britain's opposition Labour party, Jeremy Corbyn, speaks at an event into antisemitism within the Labour party, in LondonThe leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, has the support of half his party's grassroots members, a poll published on Thursday showed, as he faces intense pressure to resign or face a leadership challenge. The YouGov poll for the Times newspaper showed 50 percent of party members would back Corbyn in a leadership contest, and 47 percent said they would not support him. A previous poll showed 64 percent would have voted for him in early May. Corbyn has refused to stand aside despite a revolt among the party's elected MPs, who say he did not campaign hard enough for a 'Remain' vote in the country's European union referendum, and who fear he cannot lead them to an election victory.
