RESIDENTS in a Cornwall hamlet have said their lives are being ruined by a neighbour who has refused to take down his Christmas lights for nearly a year. Exasperated locals in Tregatillian, just east of St Column Major, are fed up of the constant glare from the festive lights. Pat Trevarton said her neighbour put the illuminations up six weeks before Christmas 2017 but has had them on and flashing brightly almost every night since. She said: "I've no idea why he's doing it. "It's really irritating - the lights are on all the time. We're surrounded by countryside but it's driven all the wildlife away. "I've lived in different places but never known anything like this." Joanne and Geoff Britton moved to the secluded hamlet four years ago so they could live a quieter life. But the couple said the lights are spoiling their retirement. Joanne said: "I approached [him] at the end of January and said, 'how much longer are we going to have these lights up?' and he just laughed and said, 'every … [Read more...] about Residents fuming after neighbour leaves flashing Christmas lights up for almost a YEAR
CORRIE McKeague's body has been lost in the Suffolk waste disposal system, police appear to have concluded over two years since his disappearance. Detectives have confirmed to the missing airman's heartbroken family that the weight of a bin emptied on the morning of Corrie's disappearance was "unusually high". It has led them to believe that he had fallen asleep in the skip on a night out in Bury St Edmunds before being crushed in a rubbish lorry. Yesterday Corrie's distraught dad Martin concluded: "My son is gone". The horrific realisation has been reached after police quizzed binmen who confirmed the weight of one skip they collected on the day he vanished was above average. A typical bin of waste would be between 20kg and 30kg — but this container weighed 116kg. It is believed Scots-born RAF gunner Corrie climbed into the bin after a drunken night on the town, fell asleep and was taken away to a waste tip. Corrie, who was 23 when he vanished, was born in Cupar, Fife, but moved … [Read more...] about Corrie McKeague cops confirm ‘unusually high’ bin weight on day RAF airman vanished two years ago

RUBBISH has been piling up for SIX WEEKS after badly parked cars blocked a road, sparking fury from residents. Locals now claim huge rats have been scurrying along Nineveh Avenue in Birmingham thanks to the mountain of bin bags. They claim the council have refused to collect their rubbish for almost six weeks now because selfish drivers are parking on the corner of the road - making it impossible for bin men to enter. Charlene Webley, 68, told BirminghamLive: "It will be six weeks on Wednesday that rubbish hasn't been collected. It stinks out there and you can't even open your windows. "Bags are just piled on top of each other. Some of us have had to wheel our bins to the end of the road on Nineveh Road in the hope they'll be emptied. "It's disgusting around here." She says the road is narrow so if a car parks on the corner, it would be impossible for a bin lorry to enter. But the resident claims the issue has been raised with the council "about six times". She said: "I'm sick of … [Read more...] about Bin bags left to pile up in street for SIX WEEKS as council won’t collect them after badly parked drivers block road
A McDONALD’S worker handed a water bottle to a seven-year-old girl who was vomiting after undergoing treatment for cancer – but then asked her mum to pay £1.29 for it. Beth King’s daughter Lola Griffiths-King felt sick in the fast food chain in Wallasey, in Merseyside, after having chemotherapy earlier in the day. Lola, who has acute lymphoblastic leukaemia since birth but was only diagnosed in January, had asked to go to McDonald’s at around 3.30pm on Saturday. But she felt nauseous when they started tucking into their food. Beth, 30, told the Liverpool Echo: "She hasn't eaten for days, while me and her baby sister [were sitting there] she starts to throw up as her chemotherapy wiped her out for the day. "She was dead embarrassed, she is anyway, as people always stare because she's got no hair. "The cleaner came over with a bottle of water, as Lola can't drink tap water, because she was being sick." But Beth, who is a full time carer to her daughter, was … [Read more...] about McDonald’s worker gave water to girl, 7, who was vomiting after chemo… then tried to charge her £1.29
