In a week where:
- A gunman kills three people and injured another four at a shopping mall in Copenhagen.
- BBC admits they received complaints about Tim Westwood.
- Six people die after a shooting during July 4th parade.
- Russia claims victory in Ukraine's eastern Luhansk region.
- Sajid Javid & Rishi Sunak lead a flurry of Tory cabinet resignations.
In Politics: (11:41) As the Tory party crumbles, it must be said that they're still going in many other ways, including following the US in abortion rights.
