Security services are probing whether some of the six men arrested in connection with the Parsons Green bomb attack were in contact with each other using encrypted mobile phone apps . A link to the Telegram messaging service, reportedly widely popular with Islamic State jihadists, is understood to have been found on a phone seized from one of the suspects.
The expat mum arrested over an alleged food poisoning claims scam ran the Magaluf bar where a teenager was filmed performing 24 sex acts for a free drink. Laura Joyce, 38, got a £50,000 fine and a one-year closure order for Playhouse, in the Majorca resort. Judicial sources yesterday said an appeal was still unresolved. Playhouse was identified in 2014 footage in which a girl aged 18 was reportedly duped into performing the sex acts to win a holiday, the name of a cocktail.
A probe into alleged fake food poisoning compensation claims by British tourists has been extended from Majorca to the Canary Islands. Several expats, allegedly led by Laura Joyce, were held in Majorca this week on suspicion of touting for tourists to file false claims. The scam is said to have been worth £55million over three years and officers are now studying claims in Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
