Passports please! With the Scottish independence referendum looming, a group of pranksters hit on the novel idea of constructing a 'Scottish Border Agency' passport control centre at Carter Bar on the Scottish border near Jedburgh. As the referendum race enters the home straight, motorists were stunned to see the mock border control point spring up overnight. Alan Smith, a piper from Hawick was the first man to pass the barrier ahead of the vote on September 18, 2014.

Rocket takes classified U.S. government payload into space
An Atlas V rocket carries the U.S. government's classified CLIO satellite into space following a successful launch from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
NASA awards contracts to Boeing and SpaceX to ferry astronauts to the international space station, saying the move will allow the space agency to focus on more ambitious missions like sending humans to Mars. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
WARNING: THIS TRAILER CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE. For Nick, Kurt and Dale, the only thing that would make the daily grind more tolerable would be to grind their intolerable bosses into dust. Quitting is not an option, so, with the benefit of a few-too-many drinks and some dubious advice from a hustling ex-con, the three friends devise a convoluted and seemingly foolproof plan to rid themselves of their respective employers…permanently.
There’s only one problem: even the best laid plans are only as foolproof as the brains behind them.
Release date: In cinemas 22nd July
