    The review was prompted by the trial of a student in London, which collapsed after police failed to disclose vital evidence to the defence.

  14. The list of the Damned United

    Leeds' new manager will be their 11th since April 2013, more than any other team in the English league.

    Leeds manager

    The Championship club parted company with Paul Heckingbottom today, less than four months after his arrival at Elland Road.

    The former Barnsley boss replaced Thomas Christiansen at the start of February.

    He's the latest in a long list:

    Neil Warnock served for just over a year, before leaving in April 2013, and his successor Brian McDermott lasted only until May of the following year.

    David Hockaday and Darko Milanic also departed before 2014 was out, Neil Redfearn lasted barely six months and Uwe Rosler's sacking made it four completed reigns inside 16 months.

    Steve Evans lasted seven months, Garry Monk nearly a year and Christiansen served from June 2017 to February 2018, while Heckingbottom was in charge for just 115 days.

    Historically the club is no stranger to its' managers leaving abruptly after a short stint in charge at Elland Road, the most famous example being Brian Clough's 44-day reign which depicted in the film The Damned United.

  15. Northern: Minister blames delays on Network Rail again

    Transport Secretary Chris Grayling has again blamed Network Rail for ongoing problems on Northern rail services, which operate across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, after the RMT called for him to quit.

    The RMT's general secretary Mick Cash said the minister should "get out" and described the situation as "carnage".

    Since 18 May, Northern has aborted 2,200 services.

    Northern has not been able to confirm suggestions an emergency timetable would be introduced next week.

    A spokesman for the company said "no decision" had been made but it was looking at a "number of options" to address the problems.
