An eight-year-old Bristol boy who has been battling cancer for more than a year has written a “goal list” after doctors said there is nothing more they can do. Dexter Liebow, from Kingswood, was diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma in 2017. He has since undergone more than 20 rounds of chemotherapy and spent months in the oncology ward of Bristol Children’s Hospital. Sadly doctors have now told Dexter and his family there is nothing more they can do.
A 64-year-old man with serious mental health issues set fire to his Bristol council flat in an attempt to kill an infestation of ants in his bed. Trevor Edwards had started the fire on March 22, 2017, using a lighter and toilet paper in the his ground floor flat in William Street, St Paul’s. Edwards, who lived in a six-storey apartment building, was sentenced for arson at Bristol Crown Court on Friday, January 19, where the court heard he started the blaze because he had been bitten by a bug.
Two men have been jailed after they broke into a man’s home early in the morning and threatened him with a knife and iron bar, after falling out over a girlfriend. Jordan Knight and Lewis Tynan entered the home of Ryan Devonshire on September 1 last year and launched a vicious attack, which included holding a knife to his throat and threatening to stab him.

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
