From fugitive to fashion model: How Cheryl Diamond, 34, spent two decades evading Interpol with her family of outlaws under six different aliases before moving to New York City with $300 in her pocket

Image
Cheryl Diamond, 34, is a former fugitive turned fashion model who spent the first 24-years of her life on the lam with her family evading Interpol. 'It's the simple mistakes that get you caught,' she says Cheryl Diamond was born an outlaw. As a child, she claims she mastered the art of forgery, learned to shoplift, withstand an interrogation and most importantly – she knew how to disappear. 'It's the simple mistakes that get you caught,' she says. Now aged 34 and living in Rome, the former outlaw details her unimaginable life in her gripping new memoir,  Nowhere Girl: A Memoir of a Fugitive Childhood. With Interpol reports and sworn affidavits to back it up, Cheryl Diamond proves that truth is stranger than fiction.   Belying her serene blue eyes and cascading blonde hair is a life of global intrigue - and a childhood that was more akin to the pages of James Bond than Dr. Seuss. She claims her first memory was a near death experience at the age of four when brak

Popeyes has been stockpiling chicken for SIX MONTHS ahead of nuggets launch as prices spike and firm seeks to avoid shortages that sparked fights when sandwiches were released in 2019

Image
Fast food chain Popeyes has revealed it has been stockpiling frozen chicken for six months as it prepares to roll out a new line of chicken nuggets amid an industrywide shortage in poultry and spiking prices. The company appears to be looking to avoid a repeat of the disastrous 2019 rollout of its chicken sandwich, which saw long lines at some locations and fist fights when stocks ran out. Whole raw chicken can be frozen for up to a year and still retain its quality, taste and texture, according to the US Department of Agriculture. Demand for chicken has surged following a meat processing slowdown during the pandemic, and prices are spiking as suppliers struggle to keep up and restaurants reopen. Fears of a shortfall have forced Popeyes to stockpile meat in an industry that typically runs lean. Popeyes Americas President Sami Siddiqui said the company's strategy was reflective of a broader market environment that is emerging from the coronavirus pandemic.  Popeyes announced that it

MI5 wants you to be on the lookout for Chinese and Russian spies as much as you are for terror threats

Image
Britons should be on their guard about spying and hostile state attacks from the likes of China and Russia in the same way they are about terrorism, MI5's top boss will warn today. In a major speech at the Thames House headquarters in London, MI5's Director General, Ken McCallum will warn that ordinary members of the public are not immune to the tentacles of hostile states. He will also emphasis that the 'less visible threats that have the potential to affect us all'. To date, there have been more than 10,000 'disguised approaches from foreign spies to regular people in the UK, seeking to manipulate them', according to MI5. The approaches have been made through social media sites such as LinkedIn to steal information, according to the UK's Security Service.
