News Lord Justice Leveson: After such a painstaking inquiry, perhaps bemused that his recommendations were not implemented in full. But unlikely to be too concerned, as he is currently in Australia.

The Press Complaints Commission might be doomed but it is dealing with a rise in complaints amid the furious political negotiations over the future regulation of newspapers in the wake of the Leveson inquiry.

Boyzone's Gately died of natural causes

The body of Boyzone star Stephen Gately can make a final sad journey home after his death on the island of Majorca, a judge said today.

Stephen Gately: Singer with Boyzone and solo star who 'came out'

With cloying, sentimental ballads like "All That I Need", "You Needed Me" and "Everyday I Love You", revivals of past pop classics such as the Osmonds' "Love Me For a Reason", Cat Stevens' "Father And Son", and the Bee Gees' "Words", and albums aimed at mums and teenage girls and released with the marketing muscle to match, the Irish group Boyzone dominated the British charts throughout the second half of the Nineties. Indeed, they ran close seconds to Take That, their nearest rivals and arguably the blueprint for their success.

Birthday party? £1m should help it go with a bit of a swing

Eight years ago, I took my then 12-year-old daughter to see Boyzone for the fourth time. Their songs formed the soundtrack to her pre-pubescent life. Those concerts were fun, apart from the screaming girls with their ear-piercing whistles and huge banners. They were also notable for the number of self-conscious small daughters, with slightly embarrassed mothers in tow, who took a vicarious pleasure from the whole thing and gradually let themselves go as the evening wore on.

MP united with his Sixties love child

By his own admission, Stephen Pound was "pretty wild" when as an 18-year-old Ordinary Seaman he met a girl called Sue during the "summer of love" in 1967 .

Media: The Word on the Street

IT IS surprising that the BBC's star newsreaders Peter Sissons and Michael Buerk have not yet presented a news bulletin from Kosovo. Jon Snow has been there for Channel 4 News and James Naughtie delivered some memorable reports for the Radio 4 Today programme. Both Sissons and Buerk have apparently turned down the chance for the identical pragmatic reason. They were out of contract and while negotiating their new ones were not covered by Beeb insurance.
