Apologies to anyone who has had a spam e-mail from me today. Along with thousands of others, apparently, my Yahoo account was hacked into. If you have received an e-mail from me today, please don't click on the link.
For anyone else with a Yahoo e-mail account, I'm told that the best way to prevent it being hacked into is by having a complex password, with no words in it, just a combination of random letters and numbers. Needless to say I've changed mine!
