Trump claims he’s ‘not concerned’ about impeachment because there would be a ‘revolt’Donald Trump has insisted he is “not concerned” about the threat of impeachment because “the people would revolt if that happened”. The president, who has been implicated in campaign finance violations admitted by his former personal lawyer, claimed it would be “hard to impeach somebody who hasn’t done anything wrong”. Federal prosecutors said last week that Mr Trump had directed Michael Cohen to make six-figure payments to two women to stop them speaking about alleged affairs with the Republican candidate ahead of the 2016 presidential election.

Grace Millane: Police increasingly concerned over British backpacker missing in New Zealand

Grace Millane: Police increasingly concerned over British backpacker missing in New ZealandPolice say they are growing increasingly concerned for the welfare of a British tourist who has gone missing in New Zealand. Detectives are investigating the disappearance of 22-year-old Grace Millane, who was last seen in Auckland on Saturday night. The backpacker, reported to be from Essex, has not been in contact with her family for several days, including on her 22nd birthday on Sunday. Detective Inspector Scott Beard, of Auckland City Police, said Ms Millane's father was on his way to New Zealand, and said her family were understandably "distraught". "Clearly this is a very stressful time for Grace's family and the longer she remains missing, the more our concern grows for her safety and wellbeing," he said.

A spokesman for the Foreign Office said: "We are providing consular support to the family in the UK, and working with the New Zealand Police in relation to reports of a missing British national in New Zealand."
