3D printing technology has advanced significantly in the last few decades. You can buy an entry-level 3D printer for only a few hundred pounds. YouTubers have made 3D printing even more attractive to the general public amassing hundreds of thousands of subscribers watching them create a vast array of items.

Cornwall has long been a top-rated destination for UK holiday-makers. Located in the Southwest of England, Cornwall has more than 300 beaches spanning its 250 miles of coastline.

Tuesday saw one of the most anticipated clashes of Euros 2021, with England vs Germany. The long-standing rivalry goes far beyond strikers and goalposts, though. The battle is more prevalent on the road than it is on the pitch for some of us.       E-Type or 911? Allegro or Golf? Mini or Beetle?
