Atletico Madrid were rewarded for their determination when they snatched a 1-0 win at Valencia thanks to a late own goal to go level on points with La Liga leaders Real Sociedad on Saturday. The visitors had carved out chance after chance with no recompense until Yannick Carrasco cut into the box and his cross bounced off the flailing leg of Valencia defender Toni Lato and trickled into the net in the 79th minute. The own goal was fortuitous but certainly deserved after Diego Simeone's side had dominated possession and fired 14 shots at goal, denied by Valencia's in-form keeper Jaume Domenech and a goal-line clearance by defender Daniel Wass.

A new Anglo-French deal to prevent Channel migrant crossings was signed tonight, as France agreed to double police beach patrols but continued to resist taking back arrivals. The four-point plan which includes a major expansion of surveillance by drones and CCTV along the 100 miles of France’s northern coastline aims to catch migrants before they leave French soil. It follows a seven-fold increase in the number of migrants crossing the Channel this year with a record 8,500 reaching UK shores since January. The bilateral agreement signed by Home Secretary Priti Patel and her counterpart Gérald Darmanin came as the EU’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier arrived in London to restart Brexit talks which have been deadlocked by Anglo-French disputes over fishing rights. Although sources insisted there was no linkage between migrants and fishing rights, they pointed to the deal as evidence of the two countries’ willingness to work together post-Brexit. "We accept this is a shared problem and recognise we can only solve it by working together," said a Government source. Under the agreement, gendarme patrols will double from December 1 supplemented by extra surveillance technology - including drones, radar equipment, optronic binoculars and fixed cameras - to help search the coastline quicker and deploy more police in the right place at the right time. The increase in police operations is backed by a French pledge to disperse more migrants from the north of France to accommodation centres inland where they could apply for asylum in France or other EU countries. Border security at ports in northern and western France will be increased to prevent smugglers shifting their illegal trafficking into lorries and other freight as the French attempt to choke off the sea routes. The agreement builds on the joint cooperation that has already seen the proportion of crossings intercepted and prevented rise from 41 per cent in 2019 to 60 per cent in recent weeks. On Friday, the French caught 20 migrants attempting to reach England. A joint intelligence cell (JIC) opened in July has helped secure around 140 arrests and prevent about 1,100 crossings, according to the Home Office. The French, however, are still resisting British pleas to take back migrants caught anywhere in the Channel or on UK soil, or to mount operations at sea to intercept and return the illegal small boats to France, which the UK believes would be legal under maritime law. Ms Patel is also looking to renegotiate the Dublin agreement under which EU countries take back migrants if they are proved to have passed through them and introduce a crackdown on asylum claims to counter late and repeat human rights claims against deportation. The Home Secretary said: "Today’s agreement is a significant moment for our two countries, stepping up our joint action to tackle illegal migration. Thanks to more police patrols on French beaches and enhanced intelligence sharing between our security and law enforcement agencies, we are already seeing fewer migrants leaving French beaches. “The actions we have agreed jointly today goes further, doubling the number of police officers on the ground in France, increasing surveillance and introducing new cutting edge technology, representing a further step forward in our shared mission to make channel crossings completely unviable. “On top of these new operational plans, we will introduce a new asylum system that is firm and fair, and I will bring forward new legislation next year to deliver on that commitment.”

An internal BBC report on the Panorama scandal, written by former director general Tony Hall, claimed that Earl Spencer was the source of Martin Bashir’s fake bank statements, rather than the target, it has emerged. Bashir is accused of falsifying documents into order to persuade Lord Spencer to introduce him to his sister, Diana, Princess of Wales, in 1995. He has been accused of preying on both siblings’ insecurities by creating statements that suggested trusted confidantes were in the pay of the security services. However, a documentary to be broadcast on Channel 4 on Monday night highlights the fact that Lord Hall, then the BBC’s head of news, told the board of governors, after conducting an internal inquiry into the allegations, that Lord Spencer had fed Bashir with information, giving the reporter a bank statement to copy. The report, released under Freedom of Information laws, said that while Bashir was in discussions with Lord Spencer, “Martin took information he had got from the highest level and made them into a graphic using the bank statement Spencer had given him.” The report was accepted at a BBC board of governors meeting in April 1996, which concluded Bashir was “an honest man” who had been “foolish.” The Diana Interview: The Truth Behind the Scandal, also raises fresh questions about a letter apparently written by the Princess to the BBC, exonerating Bashir of anything untoward.

Iranian scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, who was killed on Friday, led a life of such secrecy that even his age was under wraps but much about the clandestine nuclear weapons programme he is believed to have run has long been known. The U.N. International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said it suspected Fakhrizadeh oversaw secret work to fit a warhead on a ballistic missile, test high explosives suitable for a nuclear weapon and process uranium. Iran insists it never had such a programme nor any ambition to make a bomb.
Boris Johnson stepped in to save the Christmas tradition of carol singers going from door to door to sing seasonal songs to raise money for charity. The Prime Minister ordered a tweak to the new tiers that come into force this week to allow for people to sing carols outside as long as the rule of six is observed. The rules mean that while congregations cannot sign carols inside, people can sing them outside as long as social distancing rules are maintained. Door to door carol singing is also particularly allowed as long as carollers observe the rule of six, and social distancing. Number 10 sources said Mr Johnson was delighted to be able to help. "The PM loves carols," said one source. The change will be too late for Advent Sunday, which falls on Sunday. But Conservative MP Andrew Selous, who speaks on behalf of the church in the House of Commons, said it was "good news".
