With just a day to go until polls open in the Scottish referendum, and most polls too close to call, campaigners are making an all-out effort to persuade voters.
Police investigating the case of missing teenager Alice Gross say there has been a new sighting of her rucksack, BBC News reports.
There was a fresh appeal for information about the London schoolgirl's whereabouts on Crimewatch last night.
Det Ch Insp Andy Chalmers is quoted as saying: "A couple have come forward to tell us that they saw Alice's bag on the evening of Thursday, 28 August, at about 20:15, on the footpath that runs besides the River Brent between Hanwell Bridge and the Grand Union Canal. They didn't move the bag or look inside it."
"So I'm continuing to ask for anyone else who may have seen Alice's rucksack between this time and when officers found it on 2 September."
There will be dull and misty conditions across many central and eastern parts at first today. These should become confined to eastern areas through the morning, with some patchy rain and drizzle here.
Many southern and western areas will brighten up slowly and will become warm. There is then the risk of some thundery showers in the far south-west this evening.
Motor insurance is so rife it adds £50 to the average household bill, the Association of British Insurers (ABI) have said.
Insurers are uncovering nearly 3,500 cases of motorists lying on their applications each week by deliberately leaving out important information.
Last year, 180,675 attempts to pass off fraudulent applications were discovered by insurance companies, the ABI said.
Divided up, that is 3,475 fraudulent insurance applications each week.
Common cases involved people deliberately trying to pull the wool over insurers' eyes by pretending their "no claims bonus" was longer than it really was or trying to cover up past driving convictions.
Some cases involved drivers giving a false name or lying about where they live, such as pretending their car was being kept in a more crime-free area.
A new report has made the case for raising awareness about the way lifestyle choices can affect your risk of dementia later in life.
It points out "there is no evidence strong enough at this time to claim that lifestyle changes will prevent dementia on an individual basis". However, evidence suggests the following could result in a lower risk:
- Stopping smoking
- Improved detection and treatment of diabetes and hypertension
- Increased physical activity and reduction in levels of obesity
- Education in early life
A young American man has been caught trying to swim across a river to North Korea, according to South Korea's Yonhap news agency.
The report cites a government source as saying that the man was arrested while swimming across the Han River, which borders the two countries.
Dr Eric Karran, director of research at charity Alzheimer's Research UK, has welcomed today's report, saying:
Health experts are calling for a major campaign to educate people about how their lifestyle choices can affect their chances of developing dementia in old age.
Factors such as early-life education, blood pressure and smoking can all play a role, according to a report commissioned by Alzheimer's Disease International.
The report argues for a campaign with a central message that "it's never too late" to make lifestyle changes, and that brain health should be factored into other public health campaigns.
Alzheimer's Disease International said that a major survey of 8,500 people from six countries showed that many are not sure how to reduce the risk of developing dementia.
