#DeleteFacebook was trending today as fury at the firm's decision to ban news in Australia spread globally (left), with US politician David Cicilline - who leads a committee responsible for regulating tech firms - saying site is 'not compatible with democracy'. Tens of thousands of social media users took to rival Twitter to vent their anger and call for a boycott after the ban came into force (right), inadvertently knocking down sites including government health pages sharing news about Covid, along with charities, food banks, missing persons pages, emergency services and domestic violence shelters. Facebook (CEO Mark Zuckerberg pictured centre) says it took the decision rather than comply with new laws due to be passed this week which would force it to pay for news content hosted on the site. The law would be a world-first, but Facebook fears the idea could catch on in other countries, with similar rules under consideration in the UK, the EU and US.

Coroner's warning after British father, 56, suffocated when ill-fitting full-face snorkel mask bought on Amazon restricted his breathing during diving trip in Australia
John Bazzoni bought a Gofun diving mask which claimed to be 'anti-fog' and 'anti-leak' on Amazon ahead of his trip to see his daughter Nicola Roman in Western Australia for Christmas in 2017. But during a snorkeling trip to Lady Nora Island with his son-in-law Sean Roman, a police officer, on New Year's Eve, the 56-year-old, from Andover, Hampshire, got into difficulties. Water entered the decorator's mask and it became fogged up. Mr Roman and his colleague Simon Harrison 'admirably' tried to rescue Mr Bazzoni - but the mask restricted his supply of oxygen and when he was pulled aboard a boat he was 'foaming at the mouth' and colourless. Coroner Jason Pegg said there are 'concerns globally' that such full-face masks do not allow exhaled air to be purged through normal breathing, leading to a build-up of carbon dioxide. A post-mortem examination showed Mr Bazzoni died of hypoxia - oxygen deprivation - with a secondary cause of cardiovascular disease.

That's gonna need a LOT of glue! Engineers lay out parts of WWII Lancaster bomber like a giant AIRFIX model in RAF hangar before painstakingly piecing it together
The aircraft, named Just Jane, is three years into a ten-year restoration at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre in East Kirkby, Lincolnshire, which will see it return to the skies to add to the two remaining bombers which are still flying. Before it can fly again, each part of the four-engined plane needs to be stripped-down, checked, repaired or re-built so a certificate of airworthiness can be issued by the Civil Aviation Authority. Some 7,377 Lancasters (one shown inset in 1942) had carried out more than 150,000 missions by the end of the Second World War -including the supremely audacious Dambuster Raids of 1943. They had also dropped more than 600,000 tons of bombs on the enemy, a feat unequalled by any other plane. The men who flew them had the most perilous posting of the war - Bomber Command - and 3,249 aircraft and their crews would be lost in action. During the summer months Just Jane is used for ground displays and taxiing passengers around a former RAF airfield in Lincolnshire. But every winter, as part of the ￡4million project, different sections of the Lancaster are restored. This year it's the huge tail and rear fuselage (pictured top right) that's being worked on. Pictured bottom left: One of the plane's Rolls-Royce engines. Bottom right: The cockpit.
