Children should be made aware of internet risks

    Children need to be aware of the Internet risks that can expose them to bad actors and abuse on the web, a top Google executive said at an event here on Tuesday to commemorate Safer Internet Day 2018.

I think this point is increasingly understood on both sides. It is not a matter of scaremongering to get negotiating advantage. Bailey said that when the UK leaves the EU, a wide range...

Dawn raid on 21 people traffickers

    Investigators have smashed an organised crime gang smuggling hundreds of illegal immigrants a year into the UK.

Virgin bags lucrative new rail deal just after their East Coast route collapses

    The Tories have awarded a lucrative rail franchise to Virgin Trains just two minutes after revealing another franchise part-run by the firm was set to collapse within months Virgin Trains East Coast is a partnership between Stagecoach and Sir Richard Branson's empire. The government had already decided to end the franchise three years early in 2020 which could cost taxpayers up to £2bn in lost payments to the Treasury. But today Transport Secretary Chris Grayling admitted to the commons that the franchise only had enough cash to operate in its current form for a matter of a very small number of months and no more. And in a move branded outrageous by a rail union leader Virgin Trains was given an extension to run services on the London to Glasgow route. He called ...
