BBC News - Witnesses reveal Lord Lucan's 'secret life in Africa'

Evidence that missing aristocrat Lord Lucan was smuggled out of the UK to a secret life abroad has come from two new witnesses.

An ex-detective said there was a credible sighting of Lucan in Africa.

And a woman who worked for Lucan's friend John Aspinall told the BBC she arranged for his children to fly to Africa where the peer could view them "from a distance".

Lucan disappeared in 1974 after the murder of his children's nanny.

Sandra Rivett was found dead at Lucan's home in Belgravia, London.

The peer's blood-soaked car was later found abandoned in Newhaven, East Sussex.

The Metropolitan Police said any "significant" new information about her death would "be fully considered".

Can't say I'm surprised that all of the Aspinall mob knew what was going on.

Hitler had son with French teen - Telegraph

Jean-Marie Loret, who died in 1985 aged 67, never met his father, but went on to fight Nazi forces during the Second World War.

His extraordinary story has now been backed up by a range of compelling evidence, both in France and in Germany, which is published in the latest edition of Paris's Le Point magazine.

Hitler is said to have had an affair with Mr Loret's mother, Charlotte Lobjoie, 16, as he took a break from the trenches in June 1917.

Shipfinder is a google map of (almost) everything commercial afloat. Nerdy fun. Icebreaker Urho, for instance, is at this very moment leading Crystal Diamond and Astoria out from the Porvoo refinery area into the Finnish Gulf. Crystal Diamond is registered in Luxembourg and on its way to Orrengrund. Speed 3.4 kts.
