A cliff collapse in Zante has left seven injured in after rocks crashed onto a beach packed with Brits abroad.

Shocking video has emegred of a landslide taking place down on holiday goers at Vabaggio on the Greek island.

Terrified tourists can be seen fleeing in panic as the rocks crash down from above.

‘There was a rumble and a rock fell,’ an eyewitness told ANA as per The Sun. ‘Followed by a larger rock and then another.’

Rescuers are believed to be searching to see if there are any undiscovered victims trapped beneath the rocks.

A fire brigade official said:

So far, we haven’t found any trapped people but we will continue searching.

The video shows a wall of rock peeling from the cliff and crashing down on beachgoers below.

A few small boats managed to overturn thanks to the force of the landslide causing high waves in the sea.

Famous for its beaches, Zante, short for Zakynthos, is a popular destination with British citizens  looking for a good time. Navagio (also known the Shipwreck Beach), is accessible only by boat. Other beaches on offer include Gerakas, Kalamaki, Porto Zoro, Banana and more.

Paedophile To Be Chemically Castrated After New Sex Offenders Law Is Introduced

A paedophile from Kazakhstan is going to be chemically castrated following the introduction of a new sex offenders law earlier this year.

A new law came into force as of January 1, 2018, permitting chemical castration as a punishment for paedophiles as part of a wider package of legislative amendments aimed at protecting the rights of the child.

An unnamed man, from the region of Turkestan, will be given an injection supervised by Kazakhstan’s health ministry.

He will be the first person in the former Soviet republic to receive this controversial punishment, with Turkestan becoming the first region of the country to carry out chemical castration.

Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev has allocated £20,500 for 2,000 injections on those who have committed child sex attacks.

According to BNEWS KZ, Vice Minister of Healthcare Lyazzat Aktayeva said:

From January 1 2018, the order of the Ministry of Healthcare on the use and rules to use chemical castration has entered into force.

Accordingly, it can be applied by a court decision. Funds are already allocated from the rebulican budget. As of today, one application for the use chemical castration by a court decision has already been received.

This new law applies to those over the age of 18 years old, with the intention of preventing sexual assault crimes against minors.

The procedure itself will be administered within prisons or health care organisations to offenders who have been sentenced to other forms of punishment. In Kazakhstan, sex crimes against children may also result in prison sentences of up to 20 years.

This new legislation states that, ‘the use of compulsory medical measures in the form of chemical castration is carried out on the basis of a court decision in order to prevent the state of decompensation in persons suffering from a disorder of sexual preference’.

Senator Byrganym Aitimova has said the castration would be ‘temporary’, involving a ‘one-time injection’ based upon ‘the necessity of preventing the man from [committing] sexual violence’, The Mirror reports.

Cyproterone – a steroidal anti-androgen created for treating cancer – will reportedly be used.

Unlike surgical castration, undergoing chemical castration will not stop an offender from experiencing sexual urges indefinitely, and some have raised concerns this procedure may not prevent future attacks.

Medical doctor Mikhail Zakharchenko told 365info.kz:

This method does not work 100 percent. Some patients continue to experience sexual desire despite the hormonal changes,

Moreover, the erectile functions of pedophiles are suppressed only while they are taking the medication, but after the course of treatment, they return to normal.

As reported by ABS CBN, back in 2017, Kazakhstan’s state prosecutor stated there had been a rise in child rapes with figures doubling to nearly one cases per year between the years 2010 to 2014.

According to the Astana Times, the Ministry of Internal Affairs Administrative Police juvenile police department head, Asset Ospanov, has claimed paedophiles have a 70 per cent relapse rate.

An Indonesian teenager has incredibly survived 49 days drifting out at sea after the fishing hut he was on became unanchored. 

Aldi Novel Adilang worked on a fishing hut that was anchored 125km (77 miles) off the Indonesian coast. The hut is known as a ‘rompong’; a floating fish trap without any paddles or engine.

Every week, someone would come to collect the fish that had been caught and bring Aldi supplies.

It was Aldi’s job to light the rompong’s lamps, which are designed to attract fish. The hut was anchored to the sea floor by ropes, but heavy winds on July 14 caused the ropes to snap, and the hut came loose with Aldi still on board.

Watch the incredible rescue here:

The 19-year-old from the Indonesian island of Sulawesi only had limited supplies when the boat began to float away from its mooring spot.

In order to survive, Aldi drank sea water through his clothes to ensure he didn’t take in too much salt. He also managed to catch fish, which he cooked by burning the wooden posts of the rompong.

Aldi passed several ships while he was stranded at sea, but devastatingly more than 10 of them failed to see the teenager.

Speaking to The Jakarta Post, Fajar Firdaus, an Indonesian diplomat in Osaka, Japan, said:

[He] said he had been scared and often cried while adrift.

Every time he saw a large ship, he said, he was hopeful, but more than 10 ships had sailed past him. None of them stopped or saw [him].

On August 31, when the fishing hut had floated near Guam, Aldi saw another ship, the MV Arpeggio. His rompong had a radio which he used to send an emergency signal to the passing vessel in the hopes that someone would pick it up.

Thankfully, the Panamanian vessel saw Aldi and came to his rescue. The ship tried to approach the wooden hut, but big waves prevented it from getting too close to the teenager.

Eventually the crew threw a rope for Aldi to catch, but it didn’t reach the rompong. Aldi decided to jump for the rope.

Fajar explained:

Aldi then decided to jump into the sea to grab the rope, while the waves and wind rocked him.

The ship’s crew managed to catch his hand.

The captain of the ship contacted the coastguard, who then instructed the crew to take Aldi to Japan.

The Indonesian Consulate shared Aldi’s story on Facebook, writing (translated):

Aldi Novel Adilang (19 years), in a light guard in rompong (a raft house in the ocean) drifted away in mid-July 2018 to Guam waters. Aldi was discovered by a Panama-flagged vessel, M.V. Arpeggio, on August 31, 2018.

The Osaka Consulate General picked up Aldi on September 6, 2018 in Japan after the ship ensured Aldi was in good condition and got permission for him to return to Indonesia from the Japanese immigration authority.

Currently Aldi has gathered with his family in Wori, Manado, and is in good health.

The Indonesian Consulate in Osaka would like to thank the parties who have helped the rescue process until Aldi’s return safely to the country.

The Royal Family have had their first same-sex wedding. 

The Queen’s cousin Lord Ivar Mountbatten married his partner James Coyle on Saturday (September 22) two years after coming out.

Lord Ivar is a divorced father of three, who married his ex-wife Penny 24 years ago. The pair remain on good terms – so much so that Penny gave him away at his wedding on Saturday.

Lord Ivar and James exchanged rings and vows in front of 60 guests made up of family and friends, including Lord Ivar’s three daughters.

The ceremony took place in a private chapel at Bridwell Park, a Grade I-listed mansion near the village of Uffculme in Devon where Lord Ivar and Penny raised their children.

Sharing a picture with his old and new partners on Instagram, Lord Ivar wrote:

Future and former spouses. My daughters decided it was only right their Mum should walk me down the aisle and give me away to James. Here’s hoping he won’t say no at the last minute.

No immediate members of the royal family attended the wedding, but Lord Ivar and James received lots of good wishes, including a congratulations from Prince Edward, Lord Ivar’s lifelong friend.

Speaking of Prince Edward and wife Sophie, Lord Ivar explained:

Their diaries are arranged months in advance and they were not free, but they adore James.

The newly married couple’s honeymoon has been pushed back to later in the year, with its destination yet to be decided.

The wedding celebrations were spread over the weekend, with a welcome dinner for 30 guests on Friday night before the ceremony itself on Saturday afternoon.

Guests had dinner in the orangery, where speeches were made and dances were danced.

Instead of accepting gifts, the couple asked guests to make a donation to spinal injury charity Regain.

Lord Ivar explained the couple’s decision to marry:

I suppose if we had met ten years ago a civil partnership would have been nice, but now that marriage between a man and a man is legal it seems the right thing to do.

I have had the whole marriage thing — and been very happy — but James hasn’t, so I see it as a validation of my love for him.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
