Trump not safe in White House: Former Secret Service agent
Trump, who was on the property, had praised the Secret Service for doing a "fantastic job" and said the suspect was "troubled". Joseph Clancy, a former agent who came out of retirement to succeed Pierson, announced his second retirement last month.

Rumours during filming of Beauty And The Beast abounded that Dan Stevens, who plays the Beast, was refused a rental auto upgrade in order to accommodate his two children; it was also claimed that Disney refused to pay for an upgraded flight for Lily James' mother during promotion for Cinderella. It follows previous remakes such as Cinderella, Maleficent and last year's The Jungle Book.

The film's PG rating, mid-March release, casting, and mix of both new and classic songs helped lead to the film's big opening, Degarabedian said.

Starring Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Kevin Kline, Ewan McGregor, Josh Gad, Stanley Tucci, Ian McKellan, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, and Emma Thompson, director Bill Condon's film is out now in Disney 3D across the UK.
