About RSS

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds allow you to see when websites have added new content. You can get the latest headlines in one place, as soon as its published, without having to visit the websites you have taken the feed from.

Our RSS feeds are available as open data.

Getting started with feeds

The first thing you need is something called a news reader. This is a piece of software that checks the feeds and lets you read any new articles that have been added. You don't necessarily require additional software because many web browsers, including Firefox, Opera and Safari, provide support for RSS feeds.

How to get a news reader

There is a range of different news readers available and new versions are appearing all the time. Different news readers work on different operating systems, so you will need to choose one that will work with your computer. Links to some popular RSS readers are provided below:

How to subscribe to a feed

  • Cut and paste the URL of the feed into your news reader.
  • Bookmark this page using an Internet browser that supports RSS feeds.
