Theresa May was booed and jeered after reportedly visiting people affected by the Grenfell Tower fire. Footage shows the Prime Minister being escorted to her car by security guards as onlookers shouted and filmed on their phones. One person can apparently be heard shouting: "Resign!" ITV News, which obtained the video, said the visit to victims of the blaze that killed 79 people happened last night.
Armed police have arrested a suspect after an incident in Westminster outside the Houses of Parliament. The man was held on suspicion of a public order offence and detained under the Mental Health Act. A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "Shortly after midday, a man was arrested close to the Black Rod's Garden after he verbally abused officers. "He was arrested on suspicion of a public order offence and detained under the Mental Health Act." The suspect was not armed, the spokesman added.
Grenfell Tower victims may be hit by the Bedroom Tax when they move into their new homes, the government has admitted. Victims who move into a bigger flat than they had before faces being billed the hated levy once they settle down. The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has now issued an urgent memo ensuring the victims get payments to plug the gap. But the so-called 'discretionary housing payments' (DHPs) are usually meant to be a temporary measure.
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".
