Letters: BBC cancer report | Media | The Guardian
Dr Goldacre suggests the difference between the best- and worst-performing authorities falls within a range that could be expected through chance. But this does not change the fact that there is a threefold difference between the best and worst local authorities. In addition, the bulk of the piece is a responsible warning to the public to be alert to the dangers of what can be a killer disease. I also feel is it unfair for Dr Goldacre to single out the BBC for criticism. The same research was reported widely elsewhere across the web, including the Guardian website.

Shape of You: Ed Sheeran and his Lego self
Ed Sheeran has donated a life-sized Lego model he made of his own head to his local charity shop.

Staff at St Elizabeth Hospice in the singer's hometown of Framlingham, Suffolk, praised the brick bust as an "incredible" donation.

Sheeran also donated a record player, skateboard, headphones, school books and Heinz tomato sauce memorabilia.

"He's been really generous - every now and again he has a clear out," said hospice spokeswoman Helen Owen.

Smashing a cycling record... on a Penny Farthing - BBC News
Smashing a cycling record... on a Penny Farthing

Scots cyclist Mark Beaumont rode 21.92 miles (35.3km) in an hour on the vintage-style bike to beat the 127-year-old British record at Herne Hill Velodrome.

But the Scottish cyclist was 290 yards short of the world record of 22 miles and 150 yards.

Mark holds the record for cycling around the world, which he did in 2017 in 79 days, 44 fewer than the previous record.
