Mother Gives Birth On Hard Shoulder Of M42

    Traffic on a busy motorway can be frustrating at the best of times - but it proved particularly stressful for one mother who went into labour. Baby Tommy was born on the hard shoulder of the M42 after a collision and a fuel spillage caused massive delays between Junction 7A and 7 on Saturday afternoon. The Central Motorway Police Group was called to help with the special delivery. Tommy's grandfather, Terry Kemp, has thanked officers who "came to the rescue" - and released a photo of his grandson sleeping soundly in hospital. "Mom and baby are doing well," he said. "Once again, big thank you to the police." Hundreds of people have congratulated the police for their speedy response on Facebook. It was a busy day for the specialist police squad. Earlier, officers managed to ...

Obama mocks friends and foes at his final appearance at White House Correspondents dinner

    Aiming jokes at the expense of political allies and opponents, President Barack Obama enjoyed himself at his final official appearance at the White House Correspondents’ dinner in Washington. Nobody was spared. Bernie Sanders, the 74-year-old Vermont senator who has turned the race for the Democratic nomination into a competition rather than a procession, was hailed as “the bright young face of the Democratic Party”. He went on: Bernie, you look like a million bucks — or we’ll put it in terms you’ll understand: You look like 37,000 donations of $27 each. Hillary Clinton, who now looks almost certain to be the Democratic nominee, was mocked for her attempt to win the support of young Americans. “You have to admit it though, Hillary trying to appeal to young voters is a litt...

David Cameron could be forced to allow 3000 refugee children into the UK

    A tense vote on the Immigration Bill in the House of Commons this week saw plans to let the youngsters into Britain defeated by just 18 votes. MPs cried shame as the Government scuppered a plan that would see the youngsters rescued from European refugee camps. Home Secretary Theresa May had satisfied Tory rebels by agreeing to take 3,000 children from camps near Syria instead, but the move was defeated in the House of Lords. And Conservative sources say the Government is planning a U-Turn. One Tory source told the Sunday Mirror: “They are definitely willing to come to the table to avoid any potential problems. “There’s no way they want to do this before the local elections . “They don’t want to look weak and they are worried it might do damage in areas where immigration is...

Ibiza tourists face £600 fine for drinking water in streets

    British tourists heading to Ibiza this summer could face large fines for drinking in the streets - even if it's just water. The bylaw is being considered by San Antonio to make it easier for police to control drinking. Aida Alcaraz, a town councillor in San Antonio told The Local: Given how difficult it is for police to differentiate between whether it is alcohol or a softdrink being consumed it is necessary to adopt an outright ban. Obviously people will be allowed to consume drinks on the terraces of bars, but they won't be able to take the drinks off the premises. However, some people have pointed out that this could lead to members of the public suffering from dehydration as temperatures can get searingly hot in the summer. According to RT News, Popular Party councillo...
