It’s time for another Sunday News Roundup, here’s the next instalment from the 20th April til the 3rd March 2015 (it’s a week or so late in posting, due to many circumstances and occurrences that I will be delving into a bit later on in another post…but better late than never, right?). Anyway, enjoy reading the scoop on the latest news, spanning over the past 2 weeks!
