  1. Do internet companies do enough to protect children from online grooming and abuse? Police Chief Simon Bailey has accused internet companies of “enabling child abuse” because not enough is being done to remove offensive material to protect them. He said: “The fact children are being abused and not enough is being done to make chatrooms a safe place for our children to go. Not enough is being done to take down indecent imagery which is currently out there.”

  2. They want him to leave, but he’s determined to remain. Ukip’s party leader Henry Bolton is determined to stay in charge despite half his team resigning from their positions. Sixteen members have quit their post since last week over Mr Bolton’s leadership and in light of his ex-girlfriend’s racist tweets about Meghan Markle. Nigel Farage has backed Bolton and said he could become the Ukip’s version of Jeremy Corbyn.

Darren Osborne, 48, allegedly mowed down Makram Ali, 51, and nine other people in a north London street which was busy with worshippers attending Ramadan night prayers just after 12.15am on June 19 last year. Osborne denies charges of murder and attempted murder.

  4. The police searching for a missing Halifax schoolgirl have found a body in a river. Ursula Keogh, 11, went missing on Monday around 3.30pm. Her family have been told of the discovery of a body and a formal identification is yet to take place, West Yorkshire Police said. In a statement, the authorities said: "Inquiries will remain ongoing to determine a cause of the death, however, at this stage, it is not believed there are any suspicious circumstances."

  5. After several weeks, Arsenal’s star attacker Alexis Sanchez has completed his long-awaited move to Manchester United. The agreement between the two clubs also saw Manchester United’s out-of-favour midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan go the other way in a straight swap deal.

DEBATE: Should sex offence suspects be given anonymity?

The rape charge against Oxford student Oliver Mears was dropped after new evidence emerged, making it the fourth false allegation of its kind to come to light in just a month.

This prompts the question of whether people accused of rape should remain anonymous until proven guilty and with us to debate the issue this morning was barrister Jerry Hayes - who actually prosecuted one of the young men who had a false accusation made against him and thinks all suspects should be anonymous - and campaigner Gabrielle Browne, who thinks those accused of sex offences should be named.
