The one chart that shows what causes fatal plane crashes

    Analysis of more than 1,000 fatal crashes from 1950 to 2010 shows the majority were caused by pilots making mistakes, sometimes in response to severe weather or mechanical issues.

Britain braced for torrential storms this weekend as Tropical Storm Henri charges across Atlantic

    After a warm and settled spell brought blue skies and sunshine to much of the country to-day things are about to go downhill. Forecasters warn two major storms threaten to crash into the UK next week with rain and wind picking up from tomorrow night. Swathes of Britain are on alert for severe gales to unleash 70mph gusts with more than double the normal rainfall forecast.

Just days after the Met Office invited the British public to choose autumn storm names next week may see the first getting an airing.
