You can choose Level 1, 2 or 3, and choose between American or British accents.  At the end of the article are exercises to practice vocabulary and listening, and questions for discussion.

And here's another one! 
https://breakingnewsenglish.com/mini_lessons.html

You will find a 2-page pdf with a news story.  You can choose level 1, 2 or 3.  There is also an audio section and you can choose the level, speed and American or British English.  Together we can read, listen, practice vocabulary and discuss.

I also like this one:  https://engoo.com/app/daily-news

These topics are usually easier to understand.  They introduce new vocabulary and give follow-up questions.

For short video clips from BBC News, listening only:
