  • Collector who bought Jesse James picture for just £7 on eBay told it could be worth £2 million news

    A collector has hit the jackpot after being told that an old photograph he picked up on eBay for just £7 was a genuine portrait of infamous Wild West outlaw Jesse James, worth up to £2 million. Justin Whiting, 45, bought the photograph in July 2017 and immediately tracked down Will Dunniway, a 19th century photography expert from California. He was astonished when forensic experts confirmed his picture of infamous Wild West outlaw Jesse James was genuine and could sell for six figures. Single Justin, from Spalding, Lincs., said: "Anything is possible on eBay so I kept buying the odd photograph for a few quid, like other people would buy a lottery ticket. "I noticed the picture for sale - it was ten dollars. It was a bit blurry on the site but when I got it, it was a lot clearer. "I thought to myself: 'Gee wizz, this could be a real photo!' I've been obsessed with American outlaws for years and read lots of books and study their faces. Justin Whiting's photo of Jesse James (right) and an existing picture of the outlaw at a similar age Credit: Justin Whiting / "The picture was identical to the one in my book, except it was full length. All my friends said it was the same but I knew I needed to contact experts. "I didn't dare to believe they would say it was genuine and worth at least two million." Expert Mr Dunniway confirmed the photograph was a genuine portrait of bank robber Jesse taken when the babyfaced outlaw was just 14. His report said: "The age of this image was about 1861-2 and is correct in every way to this period. "When it is compared to the much used comparison image I believe it was taken on the same day by the same photographer. "It is very evident by the face, hair cut, jacket, shirt and tie that this is the same image of Jesse James at 14 years old. One of the originals." The eBay listing from which Justin Whiting picked up an old photo  Credit: Justin Whiting / Justin then sent the 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches Victorian tintype photograph to Los Angeles forensic expert Kent Gibson who has verified evidence for the FBI. Mr Gibson confirmed the image was authentic and said: "All power to Justin. An authentic photograph of outlaw Billy the Kid sold for $5million in 2015 so the sky's the limit. "Jesse James is a very famous outlaw so this is obviously a valuable image." Justin, who has been out of work since 2003 due to back problems, has already been in touch with posh London auction house Christie's and is looking forward to spending his windfall. He said: "I'm definitely selling it. I'll be able to buy my own house and my own car. I can't wait. Good things do happen sometimes." Jesse may have robbed a few banks in his time, but Justin isn't taking any chances with his haul. He said: "I'm being super careful. That photograph is the most valuable thing I've ever had in my possession. It's staying in my friend's safe for now."

  • Massive volcano described in apocalyptic poem ushered in Christianity for Iceland's Vikings news

    A massive volcanic eruption helped convert Iceland's Vikings to Christianity more than a thousand years ago, according to new research. Memories of the largest lava flood in the history of Iceland, recorded in a medieval poem, were used to drive the island's conversion to Christianity, suggests the study. A team of scientists and historians, led by Cambridge University researchers, has used information contained within ice cores and tree rings to accurately date the massive eruption, which took place soon after the island was first settled. Having dated the eruption, the researchers found that Iceland's most celebrated medieval poem, which describes the end of the pagan gods and the coming of a new, singular god, describes the eruption and uses memories of it to stimulate the Christianisation of Iceland. The eruption of the Eldgjá in the 10th Century is known as a lava flood: a rare type of prolonged volcanic eruption in which huge flows of lava engulf the landscape, accompanied by a haze of sulphurous gases. Iceland specialises in this type of eruption - the last example occurred in 2015, and it affected air quality hundreds of miles away in Ireland. An Icelandic lava flow Credit: Telegraph The Eldgjá lava flood affected southern Iceland within a century of the island's settlement by Vikings and Celts around 874. But until now the date of the eruption has been uncertain, hindering investigation of its likely impacts. Scientists say it was a "colossal" event with around 20 cubic kilometres of lava erupted - enough to cover all of England up to the ankles. The Cambridge-led team pinpointed the date of the eruption using ice core records from Greenland that preserve the volcanic fallout from Eldgjá. Using the clues contained within the ice cores, they found that the eruption began around the spring of 939 and continued at least through the autumn of 940. At a glance | Deadliest volcanic eruptions Study first author Dr Clive Oppenheimer, of Cambridge's Department of Geography, said: "This places the eruption squarely within the experience of the first two or three generations of Iceland's settlers. "Some of the first wave of migrants to Iceland, brought over as children, may well have witnessed the eruption." Once they had a date for the eruption, the team then investigated its consequences. First, a haze of sulphurous dust spread across Europe, recorded as sightings of an exceptionally blood-red and weakened Sun in Irish, German and Italian chronicles from the same period.

  • No Dreamer deal in sight as Democrats back away from hardline approach with federal funding deadline approaching news

    Democratic leaders have backed away from their demands that young illegal immigrants be protected from deportation as the deadline approaches to fund the federal government. Top Democrats had tied their support for previous budget bills to their receiving of commitments from Republicans to consider legislation that would salvage the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme. Instead, they want negotiators in both parties to drop all contentious provisions unrelated to the budget to make it easier to pass the spending bill and keep the government open.

  • Vehicle used to pick up Yulia Skripal from airport seized for forensic tests news

    The vehicle used to pick up Yulia Skripal from Heathrow when she arrived in the UK from Moscow has been seized by the military for forensic testing. The development suggests that detectives believe the Novichok nerve agent used to poison both the 33-year-old and her father, Russian spy Sergei Skripal, a fortnight ago may have been unwittingly carried over by her from Russia the previous day. Barely 24 hours later, the pair were found on a bench in the centre of Salisbury in a catatonic state. Miss Skripal was picked up from the airport on Saturday March 3 by Ross Cassidy, one of Col Skripal's closest friends, who drove her back to her father's house in Salisbury. Intelligence officers have suggested that the toxin may have been hidden in her luggage, either impregnated in an item of clothing or cosmetics or else in a gift, meaning Miss Skripal was deliberately targeted to get at her father. Mr Cassidy confirmed when contacted by The Telegraph that his pick-up truck had been seized at the concrete plant in Amesbury where he works. Ross Cassidy, a close friend of Sergei Skripal, who is understood to have picked Yulia Skripal up from Heathrow Meanwhile, police investigating the murder of Russian businessman Nikolai Glushkov said they had found no evidence of forced entry into his home. The 68-year-old was found apparently strangled at his terraced house in Clarence Avenue, New Malden on March 12,  prompting fears that a new Moscow-sponsored attack had been carried out on UK soil. The former Aeroflot deputy director, a fierce critic of Vladimir Putin, was granted asylum in the UK after fleeing Russia in 2006.  His death was initially treated as unexplained but four days later, following a post-mortem examination, Scotland Yard launched a murder inquiry. Mr Glushkov, who was close friends with Putin critic Boris Berezovsky, was wanted over fraud allegations in his native Russia. He was also outspoken after Mr Berezovsky died in 2013, refusing to accept that his friend had taken his own life. Sergei Skripal with his daughter Yulia Credit: Social media Counter-terrorism police are leading the investigation into Mr Glushkov's death but have stressed that there is no evidence to link it with the attempted murder of Col Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury. On Monday officers were carrying out house-to-house inquiries near his Clarence Avenue home and appealing for witnesses to come forward. Metropolitan Police Commander Clarke Jarrett said: "I would urge anybody who may have information to get in touch if they have not already done so. We will have officers in Mr Glushkov's local neighbourhood today so please come and speak to us if you think you may have seen or heard anything suspicious last Sunday or Monday. "The investigation is progressing; we have taken a number of statements and have over 400 exhibits which are being processed. We have found no sign of forced entry thus far, but the forensic examination at Mr Glushkov's home continues and we expect to be there for some time. "I must stress that there is nothing we have found in our investigation so far to suggest any link to the attempted murders in Salisbury and I would like to reassure the public in New Malden that there are no wider public health concerns in relation to this investigation." Officers at the cordon near the tent covering the bench where Sergei Skripal and his daughter were found poisoned Credit: REUTERS/Peter Nicholls The bodies of Russian dissidents who have died in the UK are likely to be exhumed in the wake of Boris Johnson's disclosure that the Kremlin has spent a decade developing nerve agents for assassination purposes. The remains of at least two Russians who died suddenly and mysteriously are expected to be re-examined. Neither was tested for nerve agent poisoning after their deaths. Yesterday, the Foreign Secretary accused Putin's regime of breaking international law in developing Novichok for use by hit squads. Today, inspectors from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) will visit the defence laboratory at Porton Down to collect nerve agent samples used in the attack for independent testing. The tests are expected to last at least two weeks. Mr Johnson said the Government had proof that Novichok was being stockpiled by Russia. The Skripals remain in a critical and life threatening condition.
