There's still a lot of great stuff happening in digital and e-commerce, so here's the latest news roundup for your perusal.

It's been a busy week.

BoJo finally resigned from Number 10 - this has unsurprisingly led to a flurry of conservatives putting their names into the leadership 'sorting hat' over the last few days.

Twitter is readying itself to sue Elon Musk after he pulled out of a deal to buy Twitter - expect some heavyweight legal action!

The first extraordinary pictures from the James Webb Space Telescope have been shared giving us a picture of the universe 13 billion years ago - it seems time-travel to the very beginnings of the universe is indeed possible!

And the UK is experiencing record temperatures. Us Brits do love to talk about the weather so after complaining that it's been too cold, too wet, too dry, we can now happily rally together to grumble about how it's just too hot.
