2017 Newspaper Headlines

So, what happened in 2017? With the resignation of David Cameron following the Brexit vote, Theresa May steps forward to pioneer the movement, which begins in February 2017. Meanwhile, Donald Trump makes his first controversial decision as President, suspending refugee admission into America. Other important events in 2017 included the terrorist attacks at London’s Westminster Bridge and the Houses of Parliament in March which caused 4 fatalities. A 2017 newspaper would also report the tragic suicide bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, which caused over 20 deaths and deeply saddened the British nation. One month later a ‘One Love’ concert was held and was watched on live television by millions.

Among other news reports from the year, a Beauty and the Beast live-action remake with Emma Watson hit the cinemas, and Apple became the first ever company to be valued at over $800 million.
