King's Cross was today revealed as London's most crime-ridden station. Figures from the British Transport Police showed 457 crimes were recorded at the station 12 months to December 1 last year - a far higher figure than any of London's other rail hubs. Among those were 87 violent incidents, 65 public order offences and a further 25 sex crimes over the course of the year.
The London postcodes which are home to the highest number of dangerous drivers in the capital can today be revealed. Figures from the DVLA show Croydon and the Selhurst area have the highest number of drivers with 12 or more points on their licence – the threshold for a ban in the UK. The CR0 postcode, which covers a massive swathe of that part of London, is home to 28 drivers who have hit the 12 point mark, with offences ranging from using their phones while driving to rocketing down motorways.
Residents of one of London’s most prestigious postcodes have hit out at plans for a five-day ‘Oktoberfest’ party to be held there. German entrepreneur Carsten Raun is in talks with Ealing Council to host a festival for thousands of drinkers in leafy Chiswick this summer. Alongside the boozing, proposals include live oompah music and dancing, plus a shop where revellers can hire their own lederhosen.
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".
