Vanguard investors kept their cool during stock-market turmoil

Today 17:16 GMT

According to the asset-managing giant, which has taken in massive inflows in recent years as investors flock to passive investment strategies, its clients kept their wits about them in the recent turmoil on Wall Street, which saw the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, +0.08%  and the S&P 500 SPX, +0.04%  last week enter correction territory for the first time in about two years.

Steven Davies stuns Spurs with late goal to secure replay for Rochdale

Today 17:17 GMT

One last punt, one last chance for Rochdale to rescue the Wembley dream that had so cruelly been taken away when Harry Kane converted an 88th minute penalty for Tottenham.
