This paper describes a generic, open- domain multi-document summarisation system which combines new and exist- ing techniques in a novel way. The sys- tem is capable of automatically identify- ing query-related online documents and compiling a report from the most use- ful sources, whilst presenting the result in such a way as to make it easy for the re- searcher to look up the information in its original context.
