A new study shows that death rates from breast cancer in the UK have fallen by 17.7% thanks to screenings, earlier diagnosis and better treatment. It's the highest percentage fall among Europe's six most populous countries. Germany, France, Spain and Italy have seen smaller reductions, while Poland has seen a 6.1% rise. Cancer campaigners welcomed the news, but explained that Britain is only now reaching the European average for breast cancer mortality after many years below it. Because of the country's ageing population and an increase in obesity, the overall number of people dying from breast cancer is expected to continue increasing, even as the death rate decreases. The disease claims about 11,900 lives a year.

Musician and author @akalamusic talks about how the dangerous legacy of empire is directly linked to the black-on-black violence narrative around knife crime in the UK today. In the last 12 months the number of fatal stabbings in England and Wales has reached the highest level since records began more than 70 years ago. 21,484 knife and offensive weapon offences were recorded last year.
