doing to support the lgbt community? we have a really good network of lgbtq officers who are well engaged. so we actually go out and promote and encourage people to report hate crime and hate incidents. collecting evidence can be difficult if it is just a report of somebody that has been name—calling. we need to learn all the time around how we investigate some of these reports. south yorkshire police say they have investigated lily's case, but no suspects were identified. lily says she won't give into hate. ben hunte, bbc news, sheffield. with driverless cars moving closer to being the future of our travel, insurers are beginning to voice their concerns. they're warning that there's a risk of more road accidents during the transition to automated vehicles. the motor insurance research body, thatcham research, says more regulation is needed to make
