Trending - explaining the stories the world is sharing...

Britain First, a far-right British political party known for their extreme anti-immigration policies, has been posting and promoting videos designed to appeal to the UK’s largest immigrant community – Polish people. We investigate the possible impact of these videos, and – crucially – why they are reaching out to Britain’s Polish population.

And, when fake news is sometimes good news. Rumours in football and the fake news generated by these rumours are nothing new, but we’ll be looking at the way these stories impact clubs, players and fans.
