US intelligence 'incidentally' picked up communications from Trump's team
The Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes, said that US intelligence agencies might have 'incidentally' captured communications from Trump's transitional team following his election.

Why are there so few women working in the UK tech sector? Nigel Slater from KPMG explains
Women make up nearly half of the UK workforce, but this number drops to just a fifth when it comes to the technology sector. The Government's recent green paper on industrial strategy showed that more technical education is needed to boost diversity in the sector. Last week, financial advisory firm KPMG launched IT's Her Future, a campaign aimed at encouraging more women to consider a career in technology. Share Radio's Sara Macham spoke to Nigel Slater, KPMG's head of management consultancy.
