With its sleek, clean lines, use of modern materials, and gravity-defying shapes and forms, midcentury modern design took the United States by storm in the post-World War II era and coincided with an uptick in leisure time and travel, leading to the construction of hundreds of hotels, motels, motor inns, and resorts across the country. While many have been significantly altered, if not demolished over the years, there are still many hotels that await your stay whether you’re in search of the perfect stiff martini, a poolside lounge, or some great architecture. Take a look at some of these iconic buildings below!

A senior high court judge has halted a charter flight hours before up to 20 asylum seekers who crossed the Channel to the UK in small boats were due to be forcibly removed to Spain, a country they had previously passed through.

The judge, Sir Duncan Ouseley, ordered the flight to be grounded because of concerns the asylum seekers due to fly might be left destitute in the streets of Madrid as happened to a group of asylum seekers earlier this month.

It is thought to be only the second time an entire Home Office charter flight has been grounded by a high court action.

Under regulations known as Dublin III, one European country can return asylum seekers to another they have previously passed through if there is evidence of this in the form of fingerprints or other proof.
