Words in the news: Flurry


A man who tried to kill his family is among the latest to request removal of search results from Google.

The BBC has learned that more than half of requests sent to Google from UK individuals involved convicted criminals.

A business has also sought for links to negative reviews on a forum to be removed.

A man convicted of possessing child abuse images had also requested links to pages about his conviction to be wiped.
