In the news this week: cats, jams and miners

Looking through our most clicked links this week and it seems the sorry tale of Coventry’s most famous cat really captured the imagination, or clicks, over the past seven days:

Birmingham Evening Mail

To be expected anything making the news like this soon took on a life of its own online, with the initial outrage now subsiding somewhat into more a source of humour.

Round the other side of the world, and also generating plenty of clicks, was the story of the Chilean miners who, rather than being stuck in a wheelie bin for 16 hours, are trapped 2,300ft underground for nearly three weeks and counting:

That’s a story that I’m sure will stay in the news for a the next few weeks until the miners are back safely above ground. Also generating traffic this week was the mammoth traffic jam in the Chinese capital Beijing, standing at 60 miles long with a nine-day queue I’m sure it left plenty of people wondering if walking might have been quicker!

These are some of our most popular click-throughs but what were your favourite news pieces this past week? Let us know in the comments section below.
