1843; The News of the World, Britain's most popular Sunday newspaper, was first published.
It was, at one time, the biggest selling English language newspaper in the world, but amid a public backlash after allegations of phone hacking.

FirstGroup, which beat current operator Virgin Trains to win the 13-year deal, said it had submitted its bid correctly and was disappointed at the news.
It costs many millions of pounds to put a rail franchise bid together.
Season ticket holders - somewhat similar to the footie game - are paying this cost.
We are all aware of the up-front costs; what about the hidden cost of capitalism.

The initial fire started in a mill and large quantities of oil in the premises added fuel to the fire.
