Tonight on the British National Party internet radio station

The World at 8 – Sex trafficking raids, flash flood alert, general strike in Greece

By James North –
On tonight's show: Nine people were arrested in sex trafficking raids by the UK Border Agency on Thursday last week in one of the biggest operations of its kind ever undertaken in the UK. Officers from eight forces carried out simultaneous raids on 13 different addresses in the south and east of England.
A flash flood alert has been issued for the south-east of England as heavy downpours and thunderstorms are due to end the UK's short-lived heat wave. The briefly violent weather may also reach London, but Met Office warnings were reduced overnight after initially including the Home Counties, East Anglia and parts of the Midlands.
A burglar stabbed to death during a raid may have been trying to target a bingo jackpot winner but broke into the wrong house. Masked intruder John Bennell, 27, died from the wounds to the chest that he received after he and three others entered the house in Salford, Greater Manchester. Homeowner Peter Flanagan, 59, was arrested on suspicion of murder but has been freed pending further inquiries.
In European news, a 48-hour general strike has begun in Greece today, as the Greek parliament discusses the new 28 billion austerity package. A final vote on the plan is expected tomorrow. Eurozone sources have revealed that EU officials have been working for weeks on a ‘plan B’ to avoid a Greek default if the austerity package is rejected, but no details are given on what it would involve.
While the EU pressures Greece to take austerity measures and curb the damage to the eurozone, other nations like Turkey are increasingly sceptical about whether they should join the union. Especially since the country is not particularly welcome.
In world news, the International Criminal Court (ICC) has issued a warrant for Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi and a handful of associates. This isn’t the first time the ICC has come after figureheads.
