A local news site for the area around Sheffield. No dangers, unless you're paranoid about trackers. Ghostery's findings: A few 'beacons' which are nearly the same as trackers; More trackers; Some common advertising and AddThis (Widget) Don't worry, this is pretty normal for any news site: Some have roughly 20 services running. @m3tallica: EVERY news site I've ever visited has some trackers/ads/beacons running. Right now, there are 9 services. (10 if Facebook counts) I agree with you, but it is pretty normal. Welcome to the shitty world of online Big Brother xP

The most gutter of the tabloids being sold daily in the UK. Ridiculously uneducated, biased views spouted here. Not safe for kids as it doesn't teach them how to think for themselves, nor gives a balanced opinion based on logic and reason - instead promoting certain agendas. Thus, a net LOSS to read, rather than a net gain. Untrustworthy for the above bias. Avoid or read it as a source of propaganda. I think they have nice boobs on page 3 though? Not sure that makes up for the rest, as every woman has boobs, not every paper speaks the truth (or as close as possible).
