Q I found pedigree Maine Coon cats available on the Dodo.ie website that were being given away to a good home. I responded and received emails from the person giving them away, who lives in County Mayo, which was near enough for me to meet the person, check the kittens were OK and collect them. At the last minute, the person said that because of family circumstances she had to go to the Isle of Man, so would have to ship the kittens to us from there, but would only charge the shipping costs and for the pedigree certification. This would cost more than £200 and seemed odd. I looked up the person, Dora Antoinette, on the internet and found that she had a Facebook page. The same face on the Facebook page appeared on her emails, so things looked all right. But I then did another online search and found that the photos of the kittens in the advertisement had been lifted from a website about Maine Coon cats. Is this a scam? ZW, Northern Ireland.

Especially if it's one not connected to the house's main aerial and has been relying on a plug-in analogue aerial booster.

Youview, the venture designed to bring "catch-up" TV into the living room, is on track to launch next year after the media watchdog decided there was currently no competition case to answer. Ofcom decided against a formal investigation into YouView – previously known as Project Canvas – under the Competition Act despite 11 complaints from, among others, Virgin Media and BSkyB. The regulator said it was too early to judge the venture's impact.
YouView will offer TV on demand, web access, plus arts and charity shows, all via your remote control. But not everyone is behind this new way to watch.
