Theresa May is facing fresh turmoil today after two of her party vice chairs quit in protest at her Brexit plans - warning they will lead to 'Prime Minister Corbyn'. Brexiteers Ben Bradley (pictured left) and Maria Caulfield (pictured right) coordinated their resignations just a day after Boris Johnson's dramatic departure. Their coordinated departures (pictured bottom insert, Mr Bradley's resignation letter) - designed to inflict maximum damage on the PM who is battling for her political survival - comes after leaked WhatsApp messages show Tory MPs turning on each other. In one seething message, leaked just hours ago, Ms Caulfield said Brexiteers are being turned 'into the enemy' even though she only had her country's 'best interests at heart'.

Woman who hid £120 ruby ring inside a helium balloon for a birthday surprise appeals for help finding it after it drifted out of her house and flew away
Vikki Rutter (inset top) popped the £120 present (inset bottom) inside the giant balloon (left is an identical balloon) on Saturday afternoon as a 21st birthday gift for her cousin, Ava Wesson. But as she turned her back to grab a weight to tie down the 36-inch inflatable, it drifted into her utility room, through an open door and into the garden outside her home in Edenbridge, Kent. 'I just turned my back for 30 seconds and when I came back it had vanished,' said Mrs Rutter, 47. I just cannot understand it - there was no breeze - how it got round the corner into the utility room and out of the back door and squeezed along the side of the house without snagging on the fence or the place where I put the bins out. I do not understand.' The loss of the ring, wrapped in tissue paper inside the balloon filled with gold confetti, sparked a wide-scale search, with family and friends putting out an appeal and scouring the countryside for several miles. Right: The party for Ava.

Pint-sized Chanin Wiboonrungrueng, 11, is nicknamed Titan because of his strength. As he was plucked from the cave mouth, his tearful grandmother Kong Kantawong, 60, spoke of her sheer relief, saying: ‘I am very happy and excited. I will hug him very tightly and never let him go. He is the smallest boy in the football team but he is the toughest.’ She was watching the TV news with Titan’s aunt Yod Kantawong, 24, and the Daily Mail when they received the phonecall they have been praying for for 18 tortuous days. Sitting cross-legged on the floor of their sparse home, Yod was anxiously checking her phone when it rang, and she answered immediately. After an agonising silence, she shrieked in joy. Titan had made it out alive. The Wild Boars’ youngest player has been a member of the squad for three years. In a letter he wrote inside the cave, which was delivered by divers, he said: ‘Dad, mum, don’t worry about me, I’m fine. Prepare me fried chicken to eat.’
