The Christmas present that could cause a tragedy

Radio controlled drones are the ultimate boy's toy and, despite costing anything from hundreds to thousands of pounds, shops are reporting huge sales this Christmas.

But a new report shows how disaster was narrowly avoided earlier this year when a drone flew within 20 feet of a passenger plane landing at Heathrow.

It's prompted fresh warnings of the dangers of using drones. But, as Emma Wilkinson reports many people say they're great fun - when used responsibly.

The computer scammers who want your cash

It seems like an innocent, helpful and convincing telephone call: "There is a problem with your computer but we can fix it for you. Just give us a few details."

For many the alarm bells start ringing immediately. But sadly others - less 'computer savvy' - are taken in by the scam and don't realise it until their bank accounts are being drained.

Kent man held in international computer hacking raids

Four people have been arrested in the UK as part of an international operation to combat computer hackers.

Another 11 suspects were also arrested in Estonia, France, Romania, Latvia, Italy and Norway in a series of cross-border raids, the National Crime Agency (NCA) said.

The operation targeted suspected users of tools known as Remote Access Trojans (RATs), which allow cyber-criminals to gain control over computers, including being able to turn victims' webcams on and off and access banking or other personal information.

Three men were arrested yesterday in Leeds, aged 33, 30 and 33, while a fourth man was detained in Chatham, in Kent, the NCA said. A search warrant was used on a 19-year-old man, from Liverpool, who was brought in for voluntary questioning.
