New plan to keep you safe online

Websites that break the law could be pulled offline as part of a new plan to keep you safe online.

The government has teamed up with websites, computer companies and charities to try to make it safer for children to use the internet.

Google and Microsoft are involved in a new organisation called the UK Council for Child Internet Safety.

The council will look at things like online bullying, advertising and content created by people.

In the past few years more and more people have been putting videos and images online, as well as chatting and using message boards.

All of those types of content can very hard to keep an eye on – to make sure they’re safe for anyone to look at.

“Harmful” sites could be taken down

Now this council will look at websites, and if they see “harmful” ones will try to shut them down.

The plan is part of big report into how children use technology.

It was published in March, and as well this new internet council, also said that there should be tougher rules on the age children should be before playing certain games.

Jet-man zooms into record books

Yves Rossy – also known as Fusionman – flew in a plane to 3,000m, lit the jets on his homemade wing, then leapt out.

He went soaring across the sky at speeds of more than 200km per hour to make the 35.4 km journey from Calais to Dover in less than 10 minutes.

Bad weather had cancelled two earlier attempts, so it was third time lucky.
