The civilised world of British shooting - the Inter-Counties match earlier this morning. Target rifle shooting is something GB excels at Commonwealth Games level, so it鈥檚 perverse that the Birmingham organisers dropped it this year. @DCMS @CommonsDCMS @birminghamcg22

Do you know someone who was on holiday in Sanday at the end of May, who has now gone home to Ealing in west London? They might - without realising it - have taken a bird tracker with them, which fell off an oystercatcher. And it's been tracking their every move. (1/2)

Why do you have no one manning the station and not provided a replacement or even basic info? There are so many people here waiting and confused with kids and people with mobility issues. @WestMidRailway

Sad news about #JuneBrown who played Dot Cotton in @bbceastenders Many might not have known that June Brown joined the Wrens during the Second World War. Women were asked to join the war efforts to fill in roles of men.
