  5. Disney Plus enjoys lockdown boost

    Disney's new video streaming service has reached more than 50 million subscribers since its launch five months ago.

    When Disney Plus last announced viewing figures in February it had reached 26.5 million subscribers.

    Since then, this has almost doubled as more people are online and stuck at home due to virus clampdowns.

    Disney Plus, which rivals Netflix and Amazon Prime, rolled out to the UK and other parts of Europe last month.

    All three streaming platforms are enjoying a huge boost in viewing figures as cinemas remain closed and people are forced to stay indoors.

  6. Call for apps to get fake Covid-19 news button

    Social networks need a dedicated button to flag up bogus coronavirus-related posts, an advocacy group has said.

    The Campaign for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) said the apps had "missed a trick" in combating the problem.

    The call coincides with a study that indicates 46% of internet-using adults in the UK saw false or misleading information about the virus in the first week of the country's lockdown.

    Ofcom said the figure rose to 58% among 18-to-24-year-olds.

    The communications watchdog said the most common piece of false advice seen during the week beginning 23 March was the claim that drinking more water could flush out an infection.

  7. 'I couldn't go up to the coffin and say goodbye'

    A woman from Cardiff who could not go to her husband's funeral because of the coronavirus pandemic said she "couldn't hug anybody" after watching his coffin being taken away in a hearse.

    Susan Cadogan's husband Peter died from cancer on 3 March, before coronavirus restrictions were imposed, and she said a big funeral service with a "full church" was being planned for him.

    But she said plans had to be changed when churches shut to limit the spread of the virus.

    Ms Cadogan said: "I couldn't hug anybody, they couldn't hug me. I couldn't go up to the coffin and say goodbye."
