The last thing Emily Hunt remembers about the afternoon of May 10 2015 is enjoying lunch at her favourite restaurant with her father, who was visiting from Ireland. Over Italian food and wine, the pair chatted about Hunt's future plans. The then 36-year-old strategy consultant, originally from New York, had just finalised her divorce and was looking forward to a date with a lawyer the following evening. She also had an exciting job interview on the horizon. But just five hours later, Hunt woke up naked in a hotel bed next to a stranger, with no idea of how she got there. The events of that evening - which Hunt still struggles to piece together - would come to dominate her life, placing her at the centre of a battle with the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) that ultimately led to a change in prosecution policy. The exhausting five-year campaign, which derailed Hunt’s life and drove her to the brink of suicide, culminated on Friday with the landmark conviction of the man she found herself in bed with. He was named last week for the first time as 40-year-old Christopher Killick, who is unemployed and lives with his mother in Brent, northwest London. He pleaded guilty to voyeurism at Thames magistrates court after he admitted making a 62-second video for the purposes of sexual gratification, without Hunt’s consent. “It's pretty amazing,” Hunt says from her north London home. She has waived her right to anonymity and spoken widely about the case in an effort to stop anyone else going through the same nightmare. “Even a couple of days before I wasn't really convinced I'd see justice. I was pleasantly surprised with how seriously they took it in court on Friday.”
U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Monday said the Trump administration and Congress could reach an agreement on further economic relief amid the novel coronavirus pandemic as soon as this week if Democrats are "reasonable." Mnuchin said he would not comment on the specifics of when administration officials and Democratic leaders might resume talks, but added: "If we can get a fair deal, we'll do it this week." Negotiations with congressional Democrats over a fifth bill to address the nation's COVID-19 outbreak collapsed last week, prompting Republican President Donald Trump to take executive action over the weekend on unemployment benefits, evictions, payroll taxes and student loans.

A “monster” crocodile was spotted lurking in the waters off the coastal Queensland town of Port Douglas on August 7.Fisherman Richard Gilmore filmed the crocodile from a boat as the semiaquatic reptile bopped in the choppy waves. In the video, it appears nonchalant to the approaching vessel at first but eventually turns away from Gilmore’s boat and sinks into the water.“He’s a monster,” Gilmore remarks, adding, “Look at the size of the head on him too.”Crocodiles are common across Australia’s tropical north with state and territory governments urging citizens to be cautious around all waterways. In 2020, Queensland authorities received 178 reports of crocodile sightings as of May. Credit: Richard Gilmore via Storyful
