Prince Philip crash: As Duke takes delivery of another Land Rover, will he be back on the road soon?

Prince Philip crash: As Duke takes delivery of another Land Rover, will he be back on the road soon?A replacement Land Rover, previously driven by the Duke of Edinburgh, has been delivered to the Sandringham estate in Norfolk, hours after his car was involved in a horror crash. A black Land Rover Freelander was driven into Sandringham inside a delivery truck on Friday morning. The Land Rover is the same model as the one Prince Philip, 97, was driving in yesterday's crash, which also involved a Kia. It is believed to be the same car he has been seen driving near to Balmoral in September 2018, with a shared number plate.  Armed police were on hand as the replacement vehicle was delivered to Sandringham, where Prince Phillip is now recovering. The delivery driver backed the Land Rover out of the van, then drove it through the gates of the Sandringham estate. The Duke was not injured in yesterday's crash, and was checked over by a doctor as a precaution. The two people in the other car involved in the crash were taken to hospital and treated for "minor injuries" and then discharged.

Photographs appeared to show the air bags deployed, with heavy scratches down the sides of the vehicle.  The accident will be "investigated and any appropriate action taken", Norfolk Constabulary has said. Norfolk Police said they were following standard procedure where a road traffic collision resulted in injuries. Eyewitness Roy Warne has described how Philip asked if "everybody else was all right" in the aftermath of an accident which saw his car "tumbling" over the road. "The driver of the Kia, a 28-year-old woman, suffered cuts to her knee while the passenger, a 45-year-old woman, sustained a broken wrist," said police in a statement. The aftermath of the crash "Both casualties were treated at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn and were discharged last night. "Police can also confirm a nine-month-old baby boy was in the Kia at the time of the incident and was uninjured. "The male driver of the Land Rover was uninjured. "Both drivers were breath tested and provided negative readings." The police are expected to take statements from the Duke, the female driver of the Kia involved in the crash and any other relevant witnesses during their investigation. Buckingham Palace declined to comment on any changes to the Duke's health, after some witnesses said the Queen's consort had been left "very, very shocked" after the accident. Yesterday, a spokesman said he suffered "no injuries".  Duke of Edinburgh car crash near Sandringham Estate Asked if he held a driving licence, a spokeswoman said: "The duke has got a driving licence and follows all the usual DVLA procedures."

Donald Trump hits back amid claims he concealed details of meetings with Vladimir Putin

Donald Trump hits back amid claims he concealed details of meetings with Vladimir PutinDonald Trump's dealings with Russia have come under fresh scrutiny amid claims the US president concealed details of his conversations with President Vladi­mir Putin.  Mr Trump came out fighting on Saturday night, dismissing as "insulting" an explosive report that claimed the FBI secretly launched an investigation into whether the president was working on behalf of Russia while in office.   Even as House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler said his panel would look into the report, fresh claims emerged about a lack of transparency surrounding encounters with Mr Putin. After a 2017 meeting with the Russian president in Hamburg, Mr Trump took possession of the notes of his own interpreter and instructed the linguist not to discuss what had transpired with other administration officials, the Washington Post reported, citing current and former US officials said. US officials discovered Mr Trump’s actions when a White House adviser and a senior State Department official sought details about the meeting from the interpreter beyond a readout shared by Rex Tillerson, the then-Secretary of State, the newspaper reported.  In what would be considered unusual for any presidency, US officials reportedly said there was no detailed record, even in classified files, of the president's face-to-face interactions with the Russian leader on five different occasions. In a telephone interview with Fox News host Jeanine Pirro on Saturday night, Mr Trump said he did not take particular steps to conceal his private meetings with Mr Putin. “Anyone could have listened to that meeting. That meeting is open for grabs,” he said, without elaborating. Asked if is or has ever been working for Russia, Mr Trump replied: "I think it's the most insulting thing I've ever been asked. I think it's the most insulting article I've ever had written, and if you read the article you'll see that they found absolutely nothing." "I think it’s the most insulting thing I’ve ever been asked…the most insulting article I’ve ever had written & if you read the article, you’d see that they found absolutely nothing."- @realDonaldTrump on NYT FBI report pic.twitter.com/cIB4Sk9ZA1— Jeanine Pirro (@JudgeJeanine) January 13, 2019 Mr Trump went on to say that no president had taken a harder stance against Russia than he had. "If you ask the folks in Russia, I've been tougher on Russia than anybody else, any other … probably any other president, period, but certainly the last three or four presidents," he said. The New York Times reported on Friday that the FBI launched the previously undisclosed counterintelligence investigation to determine whether Mr Trump posed a national security threat, at the same time that it opened a criminal probe into possible obstruction of justice by the president. The decision was said to have been taken after Mr Trump fired James Comey, the FBI director leading the Russia election meddling investigation at the time, in May 2017.  The FBI investigation was subsequently folded into the broader probe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is thought to be in the final stages of an investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election and possible collaboration by the Trump campaign. No evidence has publicly emerged that Mr Trump was secretly in contact with or took direction from Russian officials, the newspaper said. At a glance | Who has been charged by the Russia investigation The president had earlier hit out at the FBI on Twitter, saying  the agency had "no reason" and "no proof" to launch such an investigation.  Mr Nadler said such standard reactions from Mr Trump "do nothing to address the incredibly serious nature of these allegations". "There is no reason to doubt the seriousness or professionalism of the FBI," Mr Nadler said in a statement which said his committee "will take steps to better understand both the president's actions and the FBI's response to that behaviour, and to make certain that these career investigators are protected from President Trump's increasingly unhinged attacks." Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who was CIA director at the time the investigation was launched, declined to comment on The New York Times report, but insisted in an interview with CBS that "the notion that President Trump is a threat to American national security is absolutely ludicrous."
