    Apple Watches Are Wasting Police Time by Accidentally Dialing 911

    An Apple Watch feature designed to save lives by alerting emergency services is wasting critical resources due to a rise in accidental calls, police have warned. Tim Smith, of the Ottawa County central dispatch, told Michigan news outlet WMEN.com that his 24-hour local branch now receives roughly 10 such calls a week. “[We] call back and find out, ‘oh, it was my Apple Watch, I was exercising or I hit it wrong or hit the wrong button,’” he said.

    Now that takes the biscuit: Police officer accused of stealing colleague's biscuits then lying about it

    Metropolitan Police Constable Thomas Hooper, based at Kingston Operational Command Unit in south-west London, is said to have taken the medium-sized two-tier tin of biscuits from a storage cupboard on May 7 2016. Charles Apthorp, representing the Metropolitan Police, told a central London misconduct hearing that it was not just a matter of taking a tin of biscuits but whether his actions had amounted to a breach of professional standards. Mr Apthorp said: "The appropriate authority's perspective is that it is not the value of what was taken, it is what was done.

Sam Anderson and Angus Reilly had been enjoying their dinner in The Mumbai Inn in Leicester and had moments earlier swapped gifts as part of their romantic celebration.

    The hypocrisies of our democracies

    American democracy was hijacked long ago by money and powerful interests, turning it into what amounts to a system of legalised corruption (Putin’s chef, a troll farm and Russia’s plot to hijack US democracy, 17 February). Lobbying, super-PACs, and myriad forms of campaign contributions are at the core of this. By comparison, the so-called Russian meddling in the 2016 elections seems like child’s play – amateurish at best, and perhaps a way to divert attention from the real problems of a corrupt system of governance whose patrons and beneficiaries want the rest of the world to think it is democratic.

    Meat safety scare firm Russell Hume collapses with 266 jobs lost

Jamie's Italian and Hilton Hotels were other high-profile clients to pull their business amid a mass recall of products.

    Beware of kneejerk reaction to Oxfam scandal

As someone who has directed humanitarian operations in various parts of the world with the UN, international Red Cross and NGOs, I am very concerned by the draconian response to the Oxfam situation (Critics ‘gunning for Oxfam’ over Haiti, 17 February). Of course, the allegations are serious, and Oxfam and others have failed in staff recruitment, monitoring and reporting.
