(Picture: Amy Willis) If you’re an ex-smoker who enjoys a cheeky e-cig while waiting for your train, you might be dismayed by this sign that has popped up in train stations across Britain this week. It is telling anyone who stops to read it that Southern Railways will ban e-cigarettes on all their 2,500 train services and 156 stations from July 26. But what is particularly striking about this ban is how most of Britain’s train companies have also quietly banned e-cigarettes – despite it not being illegal to vape in public places. Why? Apparently because some train companies consider e-cigs bad for your health, while […] Read more →
A police officer in Dallas has resigned after he was recorded pushing a black teenage girl to the ground outside a pool party and brandishing his gun at others.

Rooms will let people interact without having to use their name (Picture: Getty Images) Facebook has released a new app that will let users communicate anonymously – and the social network says trolls and online bullying won’t be an issue.

Some would say that’s an average amount but, when you consider the transition in personnel over all four positions and our trips included St Mary’s and White Hart Lane, it’s not bad going. It was no coincidence that two came back-to-back the moment Joleon Lescott was introduced to the starting XI. After an injury-hit pre-season, the free signing from Manchester City excelled on his debut in the 1-0 […] Read more →
A man walking his sheep over London Bridge this morning. As you do. #SE1 #LondonBridge pic.twitter.com/0aDEnVMwyF — Anita Klein (@anitakleinart) October 21, 2014 Sheep making their way across London Bridge wasn’t a metaphor for city workers today, it actually happened. If that wasn’t bizarre enough legendary Welsh comedian Griff Rhys Jones showed up to add his wit, although it wasn’t needed as the situation was humorous enough. The 60-year-old seemed in cahoots with the owners of the sheep who had been pulling the animals along on red leashes. @DTFestival Griff Rhys Jones with little sheep near London Bridge this morning for Dylan Thomas #DTFestival pic.twitter.com/C5lI9WWjNN — […] Read more →
