August has been and gone, along with another hope of seeing Summer... We've taken a look back at what has happened in August:

  • First of all we start of with the news that #BigBen is to fall silent for four years. The famous bong we are used to hearing will be no more (for four years anyway). The bong will however still be heard for special occassions. MPs gathered to hear #BigBens final bong on August 21st 2017. The silence is so that essential repairs can be carried out to the Elizabeth Tower.
  • The football season returned in August which is great news for all football fans across the world. Manchester United along with new boys Huddersfield had a great start to the #PremierLeague whilst the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham have had some what of a slow start. Other campaigns such as #LaLiga have also started aswell as other major leagues. With just a few days still left of the Transfer Window it certainly is going to be interesting as we have already seen PSG break the world transfer record for Neymar, paying over 200 million for his services. Will this have a knock on effect for other clubs?
  • Sadly in August Spain was victim of a #TerrorAttack in #Barcelona. A van was driven into pedestrians on La Rambla in #Barcelona on the 17th August 2017. Unfortunately this killed 13 people and injured over 100. Two men have been arrasted by police whilst another was killed by police. Our thoughts are with everyone at this difficult time.
  • London hosted this years #WorldChampshionships in Athletics which is great for the UK and the city of #London. During the #WorldChampionships we sadly said goodbye to a legend of athletics, #UsianBolt who is set to retire. He unfortunatly didn't get the perfect send off that he wished but he has provided us with a lifetime of memories.
  • A famous face unfortunately left us in August. #SirBruceForsyth sadly passed away on August 18th 2017, a true legend in the TV industry. His amazing career spanned more than 75 years which just shows you how loved he was by everyone. #SirBruceForsyth will certainly be missed, we'd love to hear your favourite memories of #SirBruceForsyth, let us know on Twitter.
