Internal page links are missing.
UK stories are posted on distinct England, Scotland, Wales, NI pages & topics like Business and Politics.
Subordinate areas/topics *were* linked on the top of the page. Those links are gone. The division of stories into areas/topics apparently continues. They are used as labels attached to story teasers.
So, if you want to see "BBC Politics" or "Edinburgh, Fife and East Scotland", too bad, you cannot.
#BBCNews - #Israel releases 39 #Palestinian prisoners from Israeli prisons
The group of 24 women and 15 teenage boys was released across the Beituniya checkpoint in the occupied West Bank.
The detainees were chosen from a list of 300 women and minors compiled by Israel - Less than a quarter of those on the list have been convicted - the vast majority are being held on remand while awaiting trial
Well, that all right then...

This #BBCNews story about the Welsh proposal to rebalance summer and autumn holidays is odd. They mention that an unnamed teaching union says there’s no backing or reason for the change.
Everyone I know who works in primary and secondary education says that the summer holidays are too long, that many kids come back having forgotten loads of what they learnt the previous term, and just how to behave at school. Also, the Autumn term is too long, and the holiday too short
I have huge respect for journalists and appreciate what you all do. It's absolutely essential.
But surely you've heard the complaint about quoting lies/propaganda. There's a place for it - in the story with context - not in the headline
The #BBCNews chose to put "Tax cutting Tories" in the headline (in quotes). It could have said "Autumn statement" or "Tory tax changes". Instead we get propaganda laundered by the Mail on BBC. Society is being torn apart by such disinfo.
From the BBC News, reporting on an earthquake within the normal range for the hundred or so earthquakes felt in the region (so, you know, not actually news as such):
"An earthquake has shaken parts of Cornwall, with people saying it felt like an explosion or avalanche."
Weird that these people had all experienced explosions and avalanches against which to compare the earthquake, but not an actual earthquake before.
What has happened to #BBCNews? It reads more like Instagram or TikTok these days. From the never ending obsession with Taylor Swift (almost an article a day in recent months), the journalists' (and I use that term advisedly) often shaky grasp of formal versus informal English, and now vapid articles about Harry Styles' hair:
"Harry Styles fans have been roasting their fave..."
How the once incomparable home of quality English and journalism has fallen.
I have no idea what to make of this.
"BBC News: The man with a pigeon living on his head" - as far as I can tell it's a genuine news report from 1969. In October, so definitely not an April's Fool thing, and broadcast as part of the normal lunchtime news.
Unfortunately I can't download the video and I don't know if this link will work for people outside the UK. But hey ...
Their top story features the "criminality" claim right in the headline. Over 100 counter-protestors arrested but ...checks notes... Police looking for three of the marchers for signs or something not very clear.
#Guardian with the far superior headline "Hundreds of thousands rally for Gaza in London as police arrest far-right protesters"
Donald Trump's lawyer has her appeal opening.
During the proceedings, while Donald Trump was giving his speeches and rants, not answering the questions and making a spectacle. The judge said, "I'm not here to hear what he has to say" referring to Donald Trump's random speeches.
Sadly, while we understand the context of what the judge meant, those words technically can be taken out of context, which is what his lawyers will argue.

No one is allowed cameras in the courtroom, but they have been providing real-time updates.
" Trump has just spent the past five minutes airing his frustrations about the New York fraud trial while on the stand.
He points his finger at New York Attorney General Letitia James as he yells that the "political hack back there" is carrying out the probe to hurt him.
At the end of the rant, Kevin Wallace of the attorney general's team asks him, "You done?"
"Done," Trump says, prompting some laughter from the courtroom. "

A few days ago, I shared a post here on Mastodon, saying that it was Israel's intention to cut Gaza in half.
Today, Israel confirmed what I said. They plan to have the northern half uninhabited.

Your headline - he chuckles, smiles and makes jokes. THAT is not informing the public in any way
