An iconic land - scratch that - watermark is in trouble. The 145 years old Star Ferry has suffered a perfect storm and for any water craft, that's always a bad thing. But there's a solution, albeit one that goes against the tide in modern commercial thinking.

We hear a lot about human trafficking and, in particular, sex trafficking. We hear about the women found dead or dying with needles in their arms, often beaten, regularly diseased and we are rightly appalled.

Max Verstappen is a polarising character. He arrived in Formula One with more talent than his emotional state could handle. He is the poster-boy for why there should be a minimum age limit for putting a weapon like an F1 car into someone's hands.
