You can turn Functional and Performance cookies on and off right here. Strictly Necessary cookies can’t be turned off. You can also find out about the different types of BBC cookies here, and learn about cookies in general here.

Bear in mind...

Most BBC sites do work without cookies. But some features won’t work without them. For example, if you turn off Functional cookies, you won’t be able to set your location in BBC Weather.

If you have a BBC account, you can opt out of personalisation. This does not turn off performance cookies. For more information see here.
