Boots charged the NHS 3,220 for medicated mouthwash - available for the equivalent of 93 on the high street, says a Times investigation. This equates to a mark-up of 3,478%.

The number of GPs in areas home to the poorest fifth of people fell by 511 between 2008 and 2017. Meanwhile, numbers near the homes of the best-off fifth rose by 134, says a written parliamentary answer to Labour.

The total number of GPs working in England fell by 541 in the last year, according to NHS Digital data.

Trump's policy is to send adults straight into the court deportation system, while tearing kids as young as one from their arms for resettlement as refugees.
