Re: A1 shuts down and reboots when I try and use any app using maps or location

Well having done everything you suggested, nothing worked, so I gave up and went to bed. Low and behold this morning it appears to be doing what you said it should do. I now have UK  and some limited UK news. I know think the problem may have been initialy that I put Bristol in as my location as it is my nearest city. I did change it to London.

Many thanks to you all.

When you are in the news app touch the function and select settings at bottom of screen, if you first set the weather setting  it  should help to locate you. When that's done select  news settings - select news topics and select rop stories and UK,   If you want a wider choice tick world.

There are quite a few UK news apps in the Android Marketplace:
