"Really sad but intriguing story," posted one estate agent. We tracked down the woman seen mopping the pavement in front of her house on Google Street View. "In the last three years, it's been like a warzone," says Lynda Hunter. "Youths setting fire to vacant properties, lead stolen off the roof, people trying to kick the door in." She is the last woman on a Liverpool road which has been all but abandoned after repeated failed attempts at regeneration. "You can't rip the heart of the community and promise them something in 15 years time," says a former council leader.

"Everybody should read," posted Lauren May. Incidents of the magnitude of those that took place in Paris are extremely rare. But what should you do if you're caught up in a major attack?

"The BBC Magazine addresses the question that everybody's not asking," tweeted Christopher Snowdon. "Mama Earth is in a crazy mess, it's time for us to do our best, from deep sea straight up to Everest," raps Sean Paul in Love Song to the Earth, which you almost certainly won't have heard, writes Alex Marshall.

"Very good article," commented Andrew Kev Mathyssen. Only 50% of people who are HIV-positive are aware they have the virus, according to the World Health Organization. There were about two million new HIV infections around the world in 2014 - 220,000 of which were among children. However, a 20-year-old who is newly diagnosed today and receives combination anti-HIV drugs can expect to live 50 more years. That compares to a prognosis of months or years back in the 1980s.

"Stunning exhibition of photos," tweeted Ben Gammon. Frank Hurley's newly digitised photographs shed fresh light on an expedition to Antarctica which nearly ended in disaster. A century ago, Endurance sank beneath the ice. Sir Ernest Shackleton had been hoping the ship would help him make it ashore ahead of a trip past the South Pole. "Frank Hurley's beautiful image of Endurance confuses people because the sails are up," says the curator of Enduring Eye, an exhibition of the photos.
