Royal family members joined the Queen for a Sunday Service in Balmoral this morning - but Prince Andrew and the Duchess of York were conspicuously absent. The royal outing came hours after video footage - obtained by the Mail On Sunday - emerged of Prince Andrew, 59, at paedophile Jeffrey Epstein's £63million Manhattan mansion on December 6, 2010. The Duke of York - then the UK's Special Representative for International Trade - was spotted peering around the door of the billionaire sex offender's home, less than an hour after Epstein left the house in the company of a young, shivering blonde woman. Last Sunday, the Queen made a public show of support by allowing her second eldest son to sit next to her as they were driven to the church service. This week Andrew is in Spain with the Duchess of York amid gorwing questions over his relationship with the billionaire paedophile who killed himself in a Manhattan prison last Saturday.

Rugby player, 20, is found dead in his hotel room just hours after making club debut

Batley Bulldogs scrum-half Archie Bruce, 20, has been found dead only hours after making his debut for Batley Bulldogs last night against Toulouse. The young scrum half, believed to be from Heckmondwike, in West Yorkshire, had been signed from local amateur side Dewsbury Moor ahead of the trip to France. They went on to lose 46-0 and the team stayed in the French city overnight. Earlier in the week, Batley head coach Matt Diskin said the debut would be a 'baptism of fire' as they were facing one of the best teams in the league with a number of key players missing due to their wives giving birth. Many rugby league stars have been leading the tributes this morning including former England players Alex Walmsley and Jermaine McGillvary.

Prince Andrew is pictured inside paedophile Jeffrey Epstein's £63million mansion of depravity nine years ago... so how did he miss signs of the billionaire's sexual deviance?

The footage of the Duke of York (left) - then the UK's Special Representative for International Trade - was taken less than an hour after Epstein, who had been convicted of sex with a child in 2008, left the house in the company of a young, shivering blonde woman (right). The video was shot on December 6, 2010, during a visit by the Prince to Epstein's nine-storey 21,000 square foot mansion dubbed the 'House of Horrors' by many of his young victims.

Leaked papers reveal Britain will face chaos and hard Irish border if it leaves EU with No

We've got to prepare for no deal, in fact the previous Prime Minister created DExEU (Department for Exiting the European Union) and said the mandate of DExEU last summer was to prepare for no deal, that's what we were focused on. Now we have a new Prime Minister focused on that and the scale and intensity of those preparations are increasing and we will be fully prepared to leave without a deal on October 31.'

Photos of marine biologists embracing and feeding her with milk and sea grass went viral all over the globe after being uploaded to social media. But the lovable mammal died last week after she was left bruised by an attack by a male dugong during the mating season, dying of a combination of shock and ingesting plastic. Her autopsy showed a big amount of plastic waste in her intestine, which could also have played a part in her death as it led to gastritis and blood infection, according to spokesman Jatuporn Buruspat from Thailand's Department of Marine and Coastal Resources. Director general Mr Buruspat said: 'We assume she wandered off too far from her natural habitat and was chased and eventually attacked by another male dugong, or dugongs, as they feel attracted to her. She must have thought these plastics were edible'.
