SHELL shock was a condition that afflicted many soldiers on all sides during the horror of the First World War. Here's what we know about the battle induced condition and how it was treated a hundred years ago. What is shell shock? Thousands of soldiers returned from the trenches of the Somme reeling from the sheer horror of war. By 1918, 20,000 men were still suffering from shell shock and thousands more had experienced it during their service. Across the country, doctors were mystified by a condition that they hadn't seen before with Tommies coming back from the trenches blind, deaf, mute or paralysed.

The petrol station also wants a licence to sell booze from 8am to 11pm every day – but the application has not gone down well.“I sleep every night with earplugs,” said one woman who lives nearby. “Someone walking past on the pavement is about 8 feet from my pillow. And the simple fact is I already am unable to guarantee an undisturbed night’s sleep, but there is some quieting when the garage shuts up for the night. “The last thing I need is a 24 hour garage as a 24 hour fuel pit stop and what effectively amounts to a 24 hour bar and cafe opposite my home.”The neighbour added that recently she was woken up at 1am by a motorbike revving its engine for 30 minutes, and by a member of staff … [Read more...] about Neighbours say giving Upper Street Shell garage 24/7 licence will fuel anti-social behaviour
