Former ISIS bride, Shamima Begum begs UK for forgiveness after ditching hijab for Nike cap and long hair

Shamima Begum looked unrecognizable as she appeared for an interview with ITV's Good Morning Britain.

West Brom go top despite being held by Millwall

West Brom moved top of the Sky Bet Championship but had to settle for a 1-1 draw against dogged Millwall at The Hawthorns. Albion extended their unbeaten run to six games in the league but their four-match winning run ended after captain Kyle Bartley's 49th-minute header was cancelled out by on-loan Arsenal defender Daniel Ballard's header six minutes later. A draw was a fair result with Albion winger Grady Diangana missing an early chance and striker Karlan Grant's penalty saved by Bartosz Bialkowski in the first half, while Millwall pair Jed Wallace and Sheyi Ojo were denied by goalkeeper Sam Johnstone. The visitors spent much of the first half defending but actually created the first opening. Billy Mitchell unleashed a low effort that forced Johnstone into a diving save. But...

Late Bamford Leveller Extends Burnley Woes

Patrick Bamford denied Burnley a first home win since February with his late poacher's effort earning Leeds a 1-1 draw at Turf Moor. Leeds had been happy enough to go toe-to-toe with the Clarets' attritional style before Burnley's pressure finally told on the hour mark for the opener, when Chris Wood's glancing touch on Matt Lowton's shot from a corner deceived Illan Meslier. It looked like Leeds would live to regret Raphinha's wasteful miss before half-time as Burnley began to believe their run of 11 Premier League home games without a win would finally be ended, until Bamford turned home Jamie Shackleton's effort from four yards with five minutes remaining. "That's where you want your strikers to be, in between the posts, and he got his rewards for it," former Leeds forward ...
