The Daily Fix: Sunday
All the biggest news stories from the day, as well as the bits and pieces you may have missed along the way.

EVERY EVENING, brings you a round-up of all the day’s main news, as well as the bits and pieces that you may have missed along the way.

  • Environment Minister Phil Hogan has said the government may change existing data protection laws to ensure the household charge is collected. Hogan said people who don’t pay “won’t get away it” and that the government will look at utility bills to target people who haven’t paid.
  • Yemen’s government has said more than 2,000 people were killed in the uprising against the country’s government – far more than human rights groups had estimated.
  • Here’s some unexpected tapdancing at a St Patrick’s Day flashmob in The Hague in the Netherlands today:

  • A US citizen has been released by his Iraqi captors after being held hostage for nine months – but who is he?
  • An explosion in a residential area in Syria’s second city Aleppo has caused a number of fatalities. It follows a double bombing in Damascus yesterday in which at least 27 people were killed.
  • Yes, Patrick’s Day is over for another year. But since it’s still the bank holiday weekend, we’re using it as an excuse – any excuse really –  to whip out this definitive version of Danny Boy by the Muppets. Enjoy the day off tomorrow…
