www.fullfact.org – London-based fact checking, non-profit.


https://www.bbc.com/news/topics/cjxv13v27dyt/fake-news Good set of examples about fake news from BBC News.


www.cilip.org.uk. Library and Information Association in the UK. Professional site.


https://librarydevelopment.group.shef.ac.uk/storyline/questioning/fake-news-game/story_html5.html Good slide-show with examples of recent fake news stories and how to spot them.
