When reading articles, you will be presented with a banner to register for an account. Alternatively, you can click ‘Register’ in the top-right of your screen (this is accessible from the top-right user icon on a mobile device). You can then follow the necessary steps to create your account.
How do I access my account?

If you’re already logged in to your account, simply click the ‘My account’ button in the top-right of your screen (this is accessible from the top-right user icon on a mobile device) to access your account area.

I already have an account, so why am I being asked to register on every visit?
You’ll need to ensure you are signed in to your account on every visit to access our content without restrictions. If you’re being asked to register, it means you aren’t logged in.
Once you’ve created an account and are signed in, our system will remember your device, meaning you don’t have to sign in every time you visit on the same device. If this isn’t happening, please check your browser settings and ensure you are allowing cookies on our website.
Please note - a website account is separate to signing up for our newsletters, current newsletter subscribers will still need to create a website account to read content.
If you are accessing our content from within the Facebook app, you will be using Facebook's inbuilt web browser which doesn't store cookies. This means that you may be regularly asked to sign into your account and won't stay logged in. This is unfortunately down to the functionality of the Facebook browser and not an issue with the tech on our end. We advise all users to make use of our free email newsletter each morning to keep up-to-date with our content as it's published.
