What is this page?

The BBC News and Sport websites provide comprehensive live coverage from major world events, but we want to make your experience even better.

We have introduced a new feature that will make it easier to stay up-to-date with all the latest news.

What's new?

We have brought together live video and live text in one place.

In addition, the text on the page now updates automatically, which means that you no longer have to refresh the page (by pressing F5 or using your browser's refresh button) to get the latest content. All of the latest text comments will instead appear dynamically.

Why this is a BETA

The phrase BETA is often used to identify a project that's in the early stage of development. Read more about the software release life cycle at wikipedia.

We would like to offer you the ability to test this page and send us any comments you have, good or bad. Those comments are important to us and will help us to develop our service.

To get in touch please use the form on the right hand side of this page. All comments will go directly to the team who helped to develop this page.

Accessibility Statement

The BBC is committed to making its output as accessible as possible to all audiences (including those with visual, hearing, cognitive or motor impairments) to fulfil its public service remit and to meet its statutory obligations. In order to achieve this, this page adheres to bbc.co.uk's Accessibility Guidelines .

The BBC News and Sport websites are developed with simple design principles to maximise its accessibility to screen readers, as well as other applications. The development process of new features includes frequent usability testing with real users. These design principles and this iterative testing will continue.

Our plans for the future

We plan to make a number of changes over the forthcoming months with a view to incrementally improving the functionality and user experience of the BBC News and Sport sites.
