captain sir Tom Moore dies


Captain Sir Tom Moore has died with coronavirus.

The 100-year-old, who raised almost £33m for NHS charities by walking laps of his garden, was admitted to Bedford Hospital on Sunday.

The Queen led tributes to Capt Sir Tom, "recognising the inspiration he provided for the whole nation and others across the world".

His daughters said they "shared laughter and tears" with their father in their final few hours together.

very sad but at least he made 100 but an example of how vigilance is still very important

dundee pl*nck^r

A man has been charged with dangerous driving after being stopped in Dundee with snow covering almost his entire front and rear windscreens.

Police said it was "about the most extreme example of lack of preparation" that they had ever seen.

Officers said the man had been driving with "practically zero-visibility" when stopped.

The incident took place in the Dunsinane Industrial Estate on Thursday.

what was he thinking !!

12 women arrested for NUDE photoshoot in Dubai

A group has been arrested in Dubai accused of public debauchery after an outdoor nude photoshoot.

Video footage posted online on Saturday shows a group of naked women having their photo taken on a balcony.

Eleven Ukrainian women are among those detained, the Ukrainian consulate told the BBC. A Russian was also detained, according to Russian media.

Public debauchery carries a sentence of up to six months in prison and a 5,000 dirham fine (£981).

Roughly a dozen women were pictured on the balcony in the Marina district of Dubai.

The Ukrainian consulate says it will visit the women on Tuesday.

Earlier reports in Russian media that eight Russian women were arrested have since been denied, but Ria news agency quoted officials as saying that a Russian who organised the shoot has been arrested.

He faces up to 18 months in prison, the agency says.

There are thousands of Russian hookers working in Dubai. The police occasionally have a clampdown and deport them in their thousands. The Ferrari, Bugatti and Lamborghini police cars you see there have all been confiscated from Russian criminals.

Parking mad: UK man completes mission to park in every spot at local supermarket

Image

A man has completed a six-year challenge to park in every car parking space at his local Sainsbury’s.

Gareth Wild, 39, from Bromley, south-east London, said he decided to take on the challenge after noticing his preference for certain spots.

“For the last six years I’ve kept a spreadsheet listing every parking spot I’ve used at the local supermarket in a bid to park in them all,” he tweeted. “This week I completed my Magnum Opus!”

“It kind of feels like the old Panini sticker albums, but a really boring version of it,” the production director told the PA news agency.

“There’s only so many parking spaces, why not try and get them all? “It’s a collector’s thing I suppose.”

What followed was a thorough mapping of the 211 spots available to him on his weekly shop – with disability spaces and motorcycle bays excluded – dividing the spaces into categories A-F.

Image

Wild completed his challenge on 24 April by slotting his car into F20, which he described as “a pig to get in”. He added: “I don’t want to make out this was too big a deal, but there was a moment of elation.”

People responded to his thread detailing the challenge with questions including what best space in the car park was.

“It turns out there’s a lot of questions about car parks,” he said. “The best space is … I mean comfortably you’ve got to be looking at C1. C1 is just gold dust.

“The moment you come in through the gates it’s the first thing you really sort of see as a space.”

Wild said his wife is “always really supportive” while daughter Aubrey, four, regularly joins him on parking missions.

“It sort of became a thing that we would do - having her along is a bit like daddy daughter time, you know?”

On Twitter, Wild said that a Lidl close to where he lives has the potential for a repeat attempt. He also described car parks as “a good snapshot of English life”.

“You get all sorts of people coming in and mingling,” he said. “Some of them park like [edited by admin], some of them just obey the rules and follow the signs.

“I just like being out and about and seeing those people.”
