THE BBC reported on an unusual reason for a football match to be delayed – bees swarming around the goalposts.
Oldham Athletic were getting ready to start their pre-season friendly match against Blackburn Rovers when a queen bee attached herself to one of the posts, which led to the penalty area becoming a hive of activity.
IT'S going to be party time in London next year, says the Daily Mail, when The Mall will see 10,000 people celebrate the Queen's 90th birthday.
The street party will see people treated to a 'classic British hamper lunch' to mark the Queen's lifelong patronage of more than 600 charities and national organisations, Buckingham Palace has announced.
IT'S the nightmare that all brides-to-be dread – Teresa Hewitt set off for her wedding, accompanied by her father Richard in a vintage Austin Rose car only for the vehicle to break down just yards down the road.
Despite standing by the roadside in her wedding dress, Teresa, from Trowse, Norfolk saw drivers pass by her for at least five minutes before nurse Jackie Geary pulled up to rescue the distraught pair.
You may never have heard of them, but believe me when I say, The Archers are a British institution. Turn on your radio anytime from the 1950s onwards and "that music" would come on; "'Dum tee tiddly dum tee dum tee dum tee ...'". Yet this tale of ‘Country folk’ is all in the imagination, including the geography. There is no Ambridge, no Borsetshire, no Woolpack pub etc. They simply don’t exist. It is all form the imagination of the writers, but they have been around for so long. One of the characters, Jill Archer, first appeared in the programme when I was a girl, and she is still going strong. Recently I saw the actress who plays her, Patricia Greene, being interviewed on television. All these years I had never even seen a picture, so she wasn’t at all as I had imagined her, and then she began to speak, and there she was: that gentle, slightly hesitant, caring voice I’d been hearing most of my life.
