Were in quadrant 57 of the Milky Way -- on a planet called Bobs Shoeworld H TODAYONAPAGE Grief for eight soldiers killed in a dayTHOUSANDS of people lined the streets this afternoon to honour eight young soldiers killed in one of the Armys bloodiest days in Afghanistan. Crowds at Wootton Bassett, near RAF Lyneham in Wiltshire, were paying their respects as the flag- draped coffins were brought home. As the mourners gathered, the head of the Army, General Sir Richard Dannatt, told the mens families that they had died for a vital cause. My heart goes out to them in their grief at this time, but they should take great comfort from the fact that their loved ones lost their lives in carrying out a mission that is really important, he said, adding: Important not just for Afghanistan and the region but for the overall security of the West and the UK. Sir Richard, who is said to have asked ministers without success for reinforcements, hinted at problems in the campaign, saying: We must get this right, we will get this right. A political row over the war was becoming more heated. It was claimed Gordon Brown rejected a recommendation from military chiefs to send 2,000 more troops to Helmand. The Government decided to send only 700 temporary reinforcements that took the total forces to 9,000 during the presidential elections in Kabul. Meanwhile, anti-war campaigners were refused access to Downing Street to deliver a letter calling for troops to be pulled out.

The mixer was wrenched from its place during a crash. The accident happened at lunchtime yesterday, closing the vital thoroughfare off to traffic until the early evening. No one was injured.Traffic standstill: this cement mixer blocked Brixton for hours Chaos is set inconcrete Price of food drops at lastPTUMBLING food prices took inflation below the Bank of Englands two per cent target last month for the first time in nearly two years. The Consumer Prices Index slid from 2.2 per cent to 1.8 per cent in June, the Office for National Statistics said -- the lowest since September 2007. The falling prices of meat, milk and fruit are the main factor. Todays figures make interest rate rises unlikely in the next few months. CULTURE Secretary Ben Bradshaw today launched an attack on BBC chiefs, who are refusing to share the licence fee with rival broadcasters. Mr Bradshaw accused them of leaving BBC staff in despair as they retreated to their bunker. He spoke out as the BBCs annual report showed the pay of the corporations director-general and that of the chairman went up in the last year, despite cost-cutting measures. Director-general Mark Thompsons total remuneration increased by two per cent to 834,000, while BBC Trust chairman Sir Michael Lyonss increased by 50,000 to 213,000. Mr Bradshaw, himself a former BBC Berlin correspondent, said: There are plenty of people within the BBC that do not feel it is a well-led organisation. The ministers blast came as Sir Michael suspended bonuses for the most senior BBC executives after outrage over the bumper salaries of leading staff and mega-deals for celebrities. Staff bonuses will not be reintroduced without the Trusts approval.Attack: Bradshaw Acting is good for me because Ive always been called a drama queen -- Girls Aloud sinGer SARAh hARdING, left, reveAls she is tAkinG A yeAr off from the bAnd to pursue A cAreer on screen Immediately he knew he was gay.
