    A budding romance between strangers who met in the queue to pay respects to the Queen may have begun in a moment which has been compared to romcom Love Actually. Royal mourners Jack and Zoe, who have 'loads of things in common' hit it off in the five mile queue, which currently has a 13 hour wait time according to the Government's live tracker, at 10:30pm last night. Zoe said meeting Jack was a 'blessing in disguise' as they kept each other entertained with 'crisps and chat' - and they are now planning to watch the Queen's funeral together on Monday. She said that she was going to have 'mixed emotions' during the historic and sad funeral on Monday and she wanted to 'share that moment with someone else'. Twitter users were quick to cheer on their budding romance - as some suggested a spiritual successor to Richard Curtis' beloved ensemble romcom Love Actually: 'Queue Actually'. Channel 4's Minnie Stephenson, who interviewed the pair, tweeted: 'Call me queue-pid,' adding a heart-on-fire emoji. Royal mourners Jack (left) and Zoe (right) hit it...
    Mourners who attended the Queen's lying-in-state have been selling their used wristbands for as much as £350. Despite opening just two days ago, around a dozen people have already listed the paper bands on online marketplace eBay - with some saying a percentage of the money will go to charity.  With a queue so unprecedented, those joining have been given coloured wristbands to mark their place - so they can leave for a drink or go to the toilet and then return.    But it appears that some mourners have seen the system as an opportunity to make some cash by selling the wristbands as souvenirs. One person has listed an orange wristband, which features the Royal coat-of-arms and the abbreviation LISQ, with an asking price of £350.

    Panicked Russians are desperately fleeing the border city of Belgorod after Ukraine unleashed a string of overnight missiles in their dramatic fight back against Putin. Footage taken from the station, located just 25 miles from Ukraine, shows civilians trying to cram on to the midnight train leaving the city last night. The mad rush came after videos were shared on Telegram of Ukrainian missiles flying overhead in the city before they were interrupted by defence systems. The rockets exploded in bright white lights, illuminating the night's sky above residential buildings. Belgorod has been considered vulnerable to Ukrainian attacks due to its proximity to the border and its storage of Russian weaponry, with the Kremlin regularly launching strikes from the region.
    THIS tax season is expected to be busier and more complicated with additional information needed to process tax returns. If you have a question for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the agency suggests heading to its site, but some people are finding costly ways to get answers from a human working at the IRS. 1People are paying private companies thousands of dollars to have someone wait on hold until they can get through to the IRS. The IRS says phone volumes continue to remain at record-setting levels. In 2021, the IRS phone systems received more than 145million calls from January 1 to May 17 - more than four times more calls than the average year, according to the agency. The congestion and wait to speak to an agent have some people taking extreme measures. Mark Steber, chief tax officer at Jackson Hewitt Tax Service, is forking over big bucks for someone to wait on hold. Mr Steber told the Associated Press (AP): “We’re conflicted that it costs money to access a free government service. “But in the service of serving...
