Top 10 articles of the week – 27/07/2013

This week, we’ve seen the news agenda dominated by a tragic train crash in the Galicia region of Spain, killing (at time of writing) some 78 people, the significant (reported) drop in crime in the UK which appears to have got many scratching their heads, and the legacy of the 2012 London Olympics.
