What are News Feeds?

News feeds, also known as RSS for 'Really Simple Syndication', allow you to see when websites have added new content. By subscribing to an RSS feed, you can view the latest news and documents in one place, as soon as they are published, without having to visit the websites you have taken the feed from.

There are two different ways to read news feeds

Either via a Web browser or via downloadable applications. Browser-based news readers let you check your RSS feed subscriptions from any computer, whereas downloadable applications let you store them on your main computer, in the same way that you either download your e-mail using Outlook, or keep it on a Web-based service like Hotmail.

How do I subscribe to a News Feed?

Below you will find a list of our feeds. Select the one(s) you are interested in by clicking on the RSS icon ( Icon RSS ) and the browser will open a new tab or window. Once you are in the tab or window, go to the top, select the news feed reader you prefer from the drop-down menu, and hit the 'Subscribe Now' button.


Google chrome users

Be aware that RSS feeds will not work properly under Google chrome unless you install the RSS extension. It can be found here:
