EACH WEEKDAY EVENING, brings you five things you should know before you head out the door.

1. #SAVITA: The Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) has released a damning report on the care – or rather, the failure to provide it – given to Savita Halappanavar in the four days before she died at University Hospital Galway. The hospital failed to provide Savita with “the most basic elements” of care and missed 13 opportunities to intervene in her case.

2. #SHOOTING ARRESTS: Two men are being questioned over the shooting dead of 27-year-old Michael Kelly close to the Luas Red Line in Dublin in July – two trams were passing at the time of his murder.

3. #MISSING: Gardai are concerned for the wellbeing of 57-year-old Carmel Williams and her 18-year-old son Alexander, who have been missing from their home in Mullingar since last month.

4. #JUNIOR DOCTORS: The Irish Medical Organisation has agreed to meet with the Labour Relations Commission to hear what the HSE has to say following yesterday’s 24-hour strike by junior doctors.

5. #MADDIE: Detectives from Scotland Yard in England are expected to release an image of a new suspect in the case of Madeleine McCann, who went missing in Portugal six years ago.
