1. Official forecasts for Britains economy should be taken with a pinch of salt after a Budget overshadowed by the OBRs gloomy outlook04:45[−]

THE official forecast for Britains economy may be gloomy but we really should take projections for poor growth with a pinch of salt.

Who could forget the almost complete failure to predict the 2007-2008 crash or the lightning speed of technological change by these economic crystal ball-gazers? They are clearly no Mystic Megs.

And while the Office for Budget Responsibilitys forecasts about the prospects for the British economy have been wrong before, they seem to have taken on the status of holy writ at Westminster.

As well as the OBR, there are also analysts from the Bank of England, all manner of international bodies and many more employed in the private sector.

But it is the OBRs sacred numbers that are accepted by the Chancellor when he presents his Budget.

On Wednesday, Philip Hammond announced that the OBR has revised growth sharply downwards, which prompted an outpouring of doom from the Governments critics.

Britain will be like the debt-ridden Japanese economy, with negligible GDP growth for years to come, apparently. It would seem the OBR thinks we are turning Japanese.

Perhaps the numbers will be right this time and doom awaits Britain as it goes through Brexit. But the excessive faith put in these projections has warped public policy for far too long.

Before the crash they created complacency that extra spending was affordable when it wasnt. And they encouraged the banks to ignore the warning signs that something was going badly wrong with lending.

This fixation of looking into the future has also distorted the publics understanding of how economies really grow not by government decree but by liberating entrepreneurs to create businesses that will develop in ways no statistician can predict.

The Georgians managed to kick-start the Industrial Revolution without the aid of economic forecasting.

The future cannot be plotted according to data points on a spreadsheet read out by ministers.

Gordon Brown must take a lot of the blame for this trend. He took his predecessors fiscal framework and turned it into a fetish of announcing long-term projections to bolster his reputation for frugality.

Numbers that until then had been collated quite cautiously by the Treasury, and treated as speculative by most Chancellors, were used to underpin Browns overconfident Budgets.

His self-assured glimpse into the future in his eleventh and final Budget in 2007 actually has a comic air when read today. His projections turned out to be about as useful as a chocolate teapot.

As Michael Portillo, the former Tory Cabinet minister, could have told him, futurology is futile.

Gordon Brown should take the blame for the trend[/caption]

During his time as Chief Secretary to the Treasury, Portillo described how he struggled to get from officials an accurate account of what happened the previous year, let alone forecast what would happen five years ahead.

Chancellors such as Nigel Lawson were wary of long-term forecasts.

If he had made the mistake of his successors when giving his final Budget in 1989, he would have missed, among other things, the end of Communism, a harsh recession and Britains expulsion from the European Exchange Rate Mechanism.

So how can the OBR look forward to 2022 and call it with any confidence? Theres Brexit to come, for a start.

As a supporter of leaving the EU, Ive always acknowledged that it could get bumpy on the way out, but it could just as easily go surprisingly well just like the past 18 months since the referendum.

Unemployment is at 4.3 per cent, its lowest level since 1975. There were a record number of foreign inward investment projects 2,265 in the year following the Brexit vote. A report published recently said 70 per cent of Europes tech investors are based in London.

Britains future prospects rest on a whole host of factors even bigger than Brexit, including whether we realise our potential as a leader in areas such as bio-tech.

By investing ?270million into new technologies, Philip Hammond stepped up and did really rather well.

In political terms he saved his job (for now) with a cleverly constructed budget.

But it will be seen by most observers through the prism of those dismal growth projections that experience suggests distract us from the business at hand.

This Chancellor is no wide-eyed optimist, but he is a realist who understands entrepreneurialism.

He was bang on when he said that those who underestimate Britain do so at their peril.

The future, as he said, is not preordained, it is what we make it.

3. England skipper Sean OLoughlin says lessons learned from last semi-final loss04:36[−]

SEAN OLOUGHLIN knows all too well what it feels like to lose a World Cup semi-final and doing the same again would be just as heartbreaking.

Not because he would be robbed of a final place in the dying seconds, but because it would be a bigger chance blown.

The England skipper could only watch in horror as Shaun Johnson danced over the line at Wembley in 2013 to send New Zealand to the final.

He and his then team-mates could not hide their devastation. Their best performance in years came to nothing in front of 50,000 people.

Now as he prepares to take on Tonga, he is determined not to go through the same again.

You have to look back on those experiences, said loose forward OLoughlin. You have to use them as well to galvanise you.

That was probably one of the most disappointing games I have been involved in. We played reasonably well and it was a good performance and we were in front most of the game.

But we didn’t quite get it and you learn lessons from those games. Theres definitely still an element of disappointment from that but we have got an opportunity to put that right.

The momentum we had in 2013, there was a lot of support and people bought into that from outside rugby league circles as well, there was a lot of support for us.

Hopefully with this momentum we have got at the minute and going into a big semi-final, we can pick up that support again that we got last
time.

Current skipperSean O'Loughlin reflects on semi-final disappointment against New Zealand four years ago

The team has changed a lot since then but the lads who were knew how close we came to doing something special that year and didn’t quite do it but it makes you appreciate the opportunity we have got now.

There are comparisons made. We want to go that next step and make the final and hopefully win. It is a massive game but everyone is excited about it.

England last made a World Cup final in 1995 and facing Tonga, a tier two nation, will not present a better chance to end that drought, despite Tongas big-name players.

They do not need to look far to find out what it takes to reach one, assistant coach Denis Betts was skipper against Australia 22 years ago.

O’Loughlin hopes England make the World Cup final[/caption]

Now Wigan ace OLoughlin hopes to go through what Betts went through, when he was just 12-years-old.

Denis has not mentioned it yet surprisingly, the 34-year-old added. It is a special occasion for everyone, whether you are captain or not, for the sport, the country to be involved in a final will be massive.

England may be in the semi-finals but amazingly the feeling is that Wayne Bennetts side has not even played well yet.

Despite shortcomings in games, OLoughlin says one thing is not in doubt.

NRLPHOTOS
O’Loughlin will lead the England team in Auckland[/caption]

He said: I wasn’t involved last year but there is definitely a mental toughness in the team.

We have not hit 100 per cent but we have still played well and there are lots of positives to come out of them.

The boys know what is expected of them in these games. As much as we have come up a bit short the confidence and belief is still there.

There have been positives from every game we have played, not as a whole 80 minutes but definitely glimpses in games of what we can do
and that gives us confidence. It is just about putting in more of a complete performance, that is the task ahead of us.

Tonga got quite a bit of momentum behind them, their support seems really strong for them.

To beat New Zealand like they did, they are obviously a quality side so we know it is going to be a tough game.

4. Two wives debate whether renewing your wedding vows like Wayne and Coleen Rooney is romantic or just papering over the cracks04:34[−]

YOUR wedding day is supposed to be the best day of your life but for some, once is not enough.

Many couples choose to renew their wedding vows years later, giving them the chance to declare their love publicly all over again.

Wayne Rooney

Wayne and Coleen Rooney set to renew their wedding vows next year after a turbulent summer[/caption]

Wayne and Coleen Rooney are rumoured to be the latest celebrity couple planning to do just that next summer, with a glitzy do in Barbados.

It is no secret that the Rooneys have had a turbulent relationship in September Wayne, 32, was arrested for drink-driving after canoodling with party girl Laura Simpson while Coleen, 31, pregnant with their fourth child, was on holiday.

So is renewing their vows really the way to ensure a perfect marriage?

Here, LYNSEY CLARKE speaks to two wives who have different opinions on whether it is a romantic gesture or just papering over the cracks.

No, says SAMANTHA BRICK married for 9 years

Samantha Brick

SAMANTHA, 46, and her husband Pascal, 46, a carpenter, live in Monpazier, in southern France.

She says: “ As the Queen stoically celebrated her 70th wedding anniversary this week, it gave me pause for thought.

“On what grounds does any sane woman argue that its a corker of an idea to renew her marital vows?

“Surely the anniversary that whizzes round every 12 months is reason enough to pause and reflect on whether all is still (mostly) magical in the marital HQ?

“For the Rooneys, it is nonsense. Waynes bad behaviour means trotting him down the aisle again, tail between his morning suit, is the marital equivalent of putting a plaster over a gaping wound.

‘Its why it is perfectly normal to go through ups and downs in marriage’, says Samantha Brick[/caption]

“There was a time when I was desperate to renew my vows but I had legitimate grounds.

“When I first said I do nine years ago the whole ceremony was conducted in French. At the time I could barely understand Bonjour.

“Most of us women know we promise for better or for worse for a reason.

“Its why it is perfectly normal to go through ups and downs in marriage.

“As self-help boffin M Scott Peck once noted about love: ‘Its not a feeling, but an activity and an investment.’

‘Renewing your vows offers zero guarantee of a fairy tale happily ever after’, says Samantha Brick[/caption]

“Thats why when the going gets tough with our other half, the last thing we should do is start interviewing wedding planners, cooing over dresses and checking out ritzy romantic locations.

“We need to batten down the hatches and focus on one another remembering why we fell in love in the first place. If it takes a trip to a marriage counsellor, so be it.

“A public declaration at a renewal doesnt smack of cosy coupledom, it whiffs of long-term marital misery.

“It definitely wont erase whatever marital misdemeanour caused you to haphazardly hurtle down the aisle either.

“To my mind, making a public song and dance when times are tough is up there with the plot line of daytime American soaps laughably not real life.

“Renewal ceremonies dont have a successful track record as Madonna and Guy Ritchie and Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony can testify.

“Most sane couples dont feel the need to renew their vows. When they mess up, they apologise. When they notch up another year hitched, they clink a glass to celebrate it.

“Im afraid I dont buy into the latest trend of tripping down the aisle to say ‘I do’ (again) in order to brush over serious marital disharmony.

“Renewing your vows offers zero guarantee of a fairy tale happily ever after.”

It worked for...

VICTORIA BECKHAM, 43, and hubby DAVID, 42, renewed their wedding vows in January this year, 18 years after they married in 1999.

It was a far less flashy event than their wedding with just six guests at a private ceremony at home.

Yes, Says LEE BURNSIDE married for 8 years

POLICE officer Lee, 39, lives in Wishaw, North Lanarkshire, with engineer husband Neil, 38, and daughters Suzie, seven, and five-year-old Robyn.

The couple renewed their vows in June 2014, on their fifth wedding anniversary.

She says:?”What can be more reaffirming than saying I do for a second time?

“The day Neil and I renewed our vows was fun, romantic, and emotional.

“When we got married the first time, it was before we started a family so having our girls there as bridesmaids made the day more magical.

“We were making memories to last a life time.

“When I first broached the subject with Neil his response was: What? More money?

“For richer, for poorer, so he soon came around to the idea.

“We hired a room at our original wedding venue and invited 30 family and friends to celebrate.

“When we tied the knot eight years ago Id expected years of marital bliss, but I hadnt been so lucky.

“At 34, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and the treatment was gruelling.

“When I was too sick to care for the girls, Neil became a mum and dad rolled into one. He was my rock.

“Renewing our vows was my way of saying thank you and I felt more in love with Neil than ever. It was ?1,300 well spent and having our loved ones there was worth every hard-earned penny.

“Dancing down the aisle to John Legends All Of Me, I felt as nervous and excited as Id been first time around.

“After posing for the obligatory wedding snaps, we enjoyed a slap-up meal.

“Men usually do all the talking at a wedding, but this time it was my turn.

“As I stood and read a poem Id written for Neil, declaring my love, there wasnt a dry eye in the room.

“Ours wasnt a glitzy do and I wouldve been happy with a finger buffet at a village hall.

“Its the sentiment that counts.

“If renewing her vows with Wayne makes Coleen feel more secure, then why not?

“Its too easy to walk away from a relationship when the going gets tough.

“Working through the rocky patches and coming out the other side is what marriage is all about.

“Renewing our vows has brought Neil and I closer.

“As we grow old together we can look back on two wonderful days instead of one.”

It didn't work for...

KATIE PRICE, 39, and KIERAN HAYLER, 30, renewed their wedding vows on a beach in the Maldives in July this year.

She tried to gloss over his cheating but they split less than two months later after more infidelity stories emerged.

5. Man tries to raise money for Charles Mansons funeral on GoFundMe but is shut down04:19[−]

ATTEMPTS to fundraise for notorious cult leader Charles Manson’s funeral have been shut down.

A GoFundMe page had managed to raise about ?731 before being pulled down, after the mass murderer died behind bars earlier this year.

But a supporter of the family, John Jones, slammed the decision, writing on Facebook: “GoFundMe has decided to be a part of the hate & so they decided to remove JASON’S Gofundme.

“But as always, we will never give in to the hate & prejudice. It breaks my heart to see Jason now suffering from the same prejudices, hate, discrimination and deliberate lies that his grandfather endured for 48 years.

“It’s appalling to me to see the world attacking Jason simply because of who his grandfather was.”

He added: “NOTHING will ever prevent us from doing what’s right for Charles & Jason. CM will come home either way I promise you all that…”

Jason Freeman is believed to be the only living person with a legitimate claim as being a relative to Manson.

If the 41-year-old is unable to claim the body of Charles Manson, the killer’s body could be used for medical research, the Mirror reported.

Manson, who was serving a life sentence for the murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and six others, died at age 83 of natural causes this week.

Manson became infamous as the leader of the Manson Family cult in the 1960s, directing his twisted followers to carry out a string of brutal killings with the aim of sparking a race war.

But his sick plot failed after he and several of his disciples were caught and jailed in 1971.

Debra Tate the sister of Sharon, Manson’s most famous victim told celeb website TMZ she received a call from prison officials notifying her of Manson’s death.

Manson – who got engaged to fan Afton “Star” Burton, 26, in 2014 – told a pal over the phone he was in good health just days ago, The Sun revealed.

6. Gridlocked roads at an all-time high as British drivers face delays of up to SIX minutes per mile04:16[−]

TRAFFIC jams are at an all-time high with frustrated drivers now facing delays of up to six minutes per mile.

As more of us turn to online shopping, a surge in the number of delivery vans has been blamed for increased gridlock in many town centres.

British motorists are spending more time than ever before waiting in traffic jams – with average delays of 46 seconds per mile
AFP or licensors

The distance travelled by drivers on Britain’s roads soared by 2.2 per cent last year to record 324billion miles.

But they faced an average delay of 46 seconds for each of these miles, official figures showed.

Experts blame underinvestment in road systems, claiming congestion is costing the economy ?9billion a year.

Jack Cousens, of the AA, told the Daily Mail: With more vehicles on the roads than ever before, and drivers growing increasingly frustrated by traffic jams, we are on the road to gridlock Britain.

Despite all the talk and investment surrounding high speed rail and alternative modes of transport, road travel, especially car, continues to be far and away the most favoured mode of transport.

Delays are worse in the City of London, where drivers now face sitting still for 348 seconds in every mile, almost six minutes.

The average speed in the capital was down to just 6.9mph in 2016, falling from 8.1mph the year before.

But motorists in urban areas outside of London are also suffering, with stop-start journeys reported in every English region.

In his budget, Philip Hammond promised the largest road building plan since the 1970s – but failed to announce funding for the project
AP:Associated Press

Chancellor Philip Hammond used the budget to boast of presiding over the largest road building plan since the 1970s, but did not announce any major new funding.

The figures come after the Government scrapped or delayed 22 congestion-busting schemes last month, including four upgrades to the M25.

The so-called London Orbital is Britain’s slowest motorway, with an average speed of just 25mph.

Conservative MP Julian Knight suggested the solution lies largely with local authjorities, who he claimed need to tackle roadworks.

Amongst 22 congestion-busting plans scrapped or delayed last month were four upgrades to the M25

Speaking to the Mail Online, Mr Knight said: “Motorists often feel hard done by and you can see from these figures they have a point.

“Its time for policy makers and councils to put motorists at the centre of their thinking. Weve got to get Britain moving again.

“Local councils and utility providers need to avoid unnecessary roadworks.

“But when roadworks are needed they need to be done as a matter of priority to get the traffic moving”

7. Brits on verge of a measles outbreak heres how to spot the symptoms04:15[−]

BRITAIN could be on the verge of a measles outbreak after two major cities reported cases of the highly-contagious bug.

Leeds and Liverpool health services have both been struck down by the viral infection and Greater Manchester is braced it could be next.

Doctors are warning of a potential measles outbreak in the UK[/caption]

Measles is highly contagious disease that can be prevented by having the vaccination, offered by the NHS as a single measles, mumps and rubella jab.

A tweet by NHS Choices said: There is an outbreak of measles in both Leeds and Liverpool.

“This infectious viral illness is easily spread and can lead to complications.

“Ask your GP about the vaccine if you, or your children, havent had 2 doses.”

As health bosses in Manchester worry the outbreak may have spread to their region, those who have come into close contact with someone suffering from measles is being urged to contact their doctor, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Anyone who might suspect they have the infection is advised to stay at home and call their GP or NHS 111.

The World Health Organisation has previously warned of a measles outbreak sweeping through Europe.

The large-scale outbreaks are happening in countries where immunisation rates have dropped, the agency said.

WHAT IS MEASLES? HOW TO SPOT THE SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

Measles is a highly infectious viral illness that can be very unpleasant and sometimes lead to serious complications.

It’s now uncommon in the UK because of the effectiveness of vaccination.

Anyone can get measles if they haven’t been vaccinated or they haven’t had it before.

It usually clears in 7 to 10 days but can lead to other serious complications.

Symptoms:

Initial symptoms include:

  • cold-like symptoms like runny nose, sneezing and a cough
  • sore, red eyes
  • fever
  • small grey-white spots on the inside of the cheeks
  • aches and pains

A few days later a red-brown, blotchy rash will appear, usually beginning on the head or upper neck before spreading.

You’ll most likely feel most ill the first few days the rash appears.

Complications:

About one in every 5,000 people will die from measles.

Complications are more likely to develop in:

  • babies younger than a year old
  • children with a poor diet
  • children with a weakened immune system

The most common complications include diarrhoea and vomiting, ear infections, eye infection, pneumonia and bronchitis.

But measles can also lead to other complications, although these are rare:

  • hepatitis
  • brain infections
  • eye problems and vision loss
  • heart and nervous system problems
  • miscarriage or still birth
  • premature birth
  • low birth weight

Treatment:

There is no specific treatment.

Your GP will probably suggest resting at home and waiting for it to clear.

You can ease your symptoms with pain killers, but always speak to your GP first.

You can avoid measles by getting vaccinated.

One dose of vaccine can be given to a baby when they are 12-13 months old and a second before they start school.

Countries where vaccination levels are higher have less chance of the disease spreading.

Source: NHS Choices

It’s now uncommon in the UK because of high vaccination rates.

As a result it is unlikely a widespread outbreak will happen, but smaller, localised cases could happen in parts where large numbers of kids and babies have not had their vaccine.

Anyone can get measles if they haven’t already had it, but it is more common in young children.

It starts with cold like symptoms before a rash develops a few days later.

The MMR vaccine prevents the spread of the virus, but there are still ways to seek treatment if you contract it

The rash looks like small, red-brown blotches and can make a person feel very unwell.

Severe complications can occur, including miscarriage in pregnant women, brain swelling and the risk of death from pneumonia.

The virus is spread through coughing and sneezing and through close contact with infected individuals.

Currently, the biggest outbreaks are in Romania and Italy.

10. Battle of the Sexes shows tennis ace Billie Jean King struggling to be free on and off the court04:03[−]

AAH, the battle of sexes.

Bins or washing up, No, I said straight on! and Should we go see a rom-com or blokes getting blown up?

Emma Stone and Steve Carell

Or in the case of this historical dramedy, the conflict revolves around a self-proclaimed male chauvinist challenging the best female tennis player to a match.

A highly provocative act which would result in death by Twitter outrage if any man were foolish enough to do it today.

But it was 1973 when 55-year-old retired Wimbledon champion Bobby Riggs decided to take on the then womens number one Billie Jean King.

And thats what makes Battle Of The Sexes so much fun.

Oscar winning actress Stone

Its a playful look back at the past when men were not self-aware enough to realise it wasnt cool to focus on how cute sportswomen were, when they should have been admiring their strong forehand.

Smashing the snappy dialogue out of the court is the supremely funny Steve Carell as Riggs and the wonderfully buoyant Emma Stone as King.

The on-screen chemistry they serve up is a delight from the first ball to the final one.

She treats Riggs like hes a mischievous little boy, rather than hectoring him about his wayward beliefs.

Rightly, screen-writer Simon Beaufoy encourages us to laugh at the dumb men rather than getting upset about them.

Adding an extra dimension to the story is Kings awakening as a lesbian.

The scene where sensual hairdresser Marilyn (Andrea Riseborough) makes King the centre of her attention as she runs her hands through her locks is certainly memorable.

As is their steamy bedroom encounter, strong stuff for a 12A, which has extra frisson because the tennis star had a devoted hubby at home.

Sexual liberation is sensitively and seamlessly woven into the issue of womens lib.

Alamy

King not only wants to be free on court, but also off it.

The personal side proves to be harder than the professional one.

If any of this sounds too serious, its not.

This is a light take on sexual politics with plenty of romance and laughs.

When it comes to couples deciding which film to see this weekend, Battle Of The Sexes should see peace breaking out.

For both men and women it will be love all.

12. Hitlers last dish revealed by his own personal chef04:01[−]

HITLER had a meagre final meal of pasta and tomato sauce before he shot himself in his Berlin bunker, newly uncovered letters have revealed.

The Fuhrer was forced to suffer the indignity of the basic grub as Allied troops rolled victoriously into the crumbling German capital on 30 April 1945.

Notes from personal chef Constanze Manziarly to her sister show the pathetic plate was the evil dictator’s last.

He killed himself between courses as she prepared a main of fried eggs and mashed potatoes not knowing he was already dead.

Earlier notes show how the Austrian cook often wrote of a “demoralised” Hitler in the final year of the war, and his treatment of her left her “feeling that I have one foot in the grave.

She once said: “I encounter unimaginable difficulties that I cannot report.

The scrawls, revealed by researcher Stefan Dietrich, show how Ms Manziarly had begun serving the Fuhrer at his Berchtesgaden retreat known as the Wolf’s Lair.

Famously a vegetarian, her meals often involved mushrooms and baked produce like bread and cakes which he devoured relentlessly.

He would “lose control and scoff himself during late night meetings with generals, she wrote.

“I bake a lot every day, often for hours, but in the evening everything is always gone”.

The brute once tried to show his affection for Constanze who he liked for having the name of composer Mozart’s wife with a gift of grey stockings.

But she told her sister: “The boss does not know much about ladies fashion”.

Fearing her disloyalty would “end up with me being in court” , she started using codes in her letters, referring to Hitler as the “chief doctor” and the bunker where he met his demise as the “recreational home”.

Two days after Hitler’s death, Ms Manziarly was seen being captured by two soldiers from Russia’s Red Army and she was never seen again.

13. Will Ferrell is the standout star in festive comedy Daddys Home 2 and it would be an outright stinker without him03:56[−]

AS with most successful comedies, the formula for a sequel is to do exactly the same but with more people a la Meet The Parents/Fockers/Little Fockers.

Daddys Home 2 is no exception.

Mel Gibson, Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell star in

As Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlbergs characters are friends now, the jeopardy comes from their dads John Lithgow and Mel Gibson.

Yup, Mel Gibson.

This is OK then, is it Hollywood?

A Christmas movie starring someone who was at the centre of domestic abuse allegations?

Like most sequels, this was a film no body was desperately crying out for
Paramount Pictures
Like most sequels, this was a film no body was desperately crying out for[/caption]

This is a hugely ill-judged casting move, giving what was intended to be merely a rascally roguish character a more sinister and creepy feel.

Especially when one of his jokes in this family film is about two dead prostitutes.

Id like to say it ruins an otherwise great film, but aside from a good scene about a thermostat and a genuinely funny cameo at the end, this is pretty standard fare.

Its a film not many people were crying out for and, were it not for Ferrell laboriously helping it along, itd be an outright stinker.

Had it not been for Will Ferrell this film would be an outright stinker

An overcomplicated family premise and too many different characters to care about, each with their own subplot, means this quickly becomes a patchwork quilt of pratfalls and arguments.

It carries more than a whiff of National Lampoons Griswolds but never holds a torch to their heart.

14. Im A Celebs Jack Maynard fails to apologise for begging a 14-year-old to see her boobs and labelling her an ugly freak03:55[−]

JACK Maynard failed to address asking a 14-year-old girl to send him nude pictures as he broke his silence in an emotional video apology on Thursday.

The 23-year-old YouTuber was booted off Im A Celeb after he begged a 14-year-old fan to send him nude pictures online, however in his apology which clocked up half a million views in seven hours, he only addressed his racist and homophobic tweets.

 In an emotional YouTube video the vlogger said he felt 'ashamed' and 'stupid' for his racist and homophobic tweets
Jack Maynard failed to acknowledge asking a 14-year-old girl for nude pictures during his video apology

As he sat on a bed and spoke to the camera he said: “Growing up online is hard and I just beg that you dont make the same mistakes as I did.

I was young back then, I had nothing, I wasnt doing anything, and thats not an excuse whatsoever.

Becoming emotional he said: Im so gutted and Im embarrassed, Im so embarrassed that all of this has happened now.

“I never wanted to make anything like this, I feel like Ive let you guys down so much, I was young, I was stupid, I was careless I just wasnt thinking.

However, there was no mention of his private messages sent to the teenage girl six years ago, which some users pointed out, with one asking: Care to explain why you were asking for a 14-year-old girl to send you a picture of herself wearing a bra?

Jack Maynard's spokeswoman insists that he chose to leave the jungle to defend himself

According to the Mirror Online Jack told her that her “boobs are so nice” and “would look good in a bra shot” but later branded her a “bore” and “ugly freak”, when she refused to share pictures.

The messages where reportedly sent from Jack’s Facebook account – which he took down on Wednesday – in December 2011, when he was 17.

 The Sun revealed that Jack had used appalling language on his social media leaving his management no choice but to pull him from the jungle
Jack was pulled out of the jungle after 72 hours after his vile tweets surfaced and the explicit messages send to the teen

The pair struck up a conversation on the social media site because she was a fan of the vloggers pop star older brother Conor, 25. There is no suggestion he was aware of her age at the time.

In the messages, Jack claimed he was a “stylist” and reportedly branded her a “bore” after she said boys have ways of “not knowing what no means”.

He also branded her a ‘bore’ when she told him boys had ways of ‘not knowing what no means’

The conversation, obtained by the Mirror, shows Jack asked the girl to send him a modelling image.

The person, who is believed to be Jack, wrote: “But yeah, your boobs are so nice! Would look good in a bra shot! Ever taken one?’.

She replied: “Secrets are kept secrets.”

He then appeared to push her saying: “You can tell me babe.”

When she said no again, he once again asked: “Come on babe.”

But when she replied saying that boys don’t know what no means”, he hit back branded her a “bore”.

The alleged conversation between Jack and the girl

Jack: “But yeah, your boobs are so nice! Would look good in a bra shot! ever taken one?

The girl: “Secrets are kept secrets.”

Jack: You can tell me babe.

The girl:Uhhh noo.

Jack: Come on babe

The girl: Boy and there ways of not knowing what no means.

Jack: Youre a bore.

The girl: Haha, Anyways I dont know you. Youre like a guys bro of youtube.

Jack: “Who the f**k even are you? you’re an ugly freak.”

The girl responded by telling him he was only famous because of his brother, which prompted him to lash out writing:

“Who the f*** even are you? Youre an ugly freak.”

But the woman, who is now 20, has insisted Jack, who she claims was 16 years old at the time, wasn’t aware how old she was while sending her the messages and admitted she “never once felt harassed” by them and that the messages were “harmless”.

She told The Sun: He was 16, I was 14. It was something that happens to everyone.

I never once felt harassed. We were kids, its not once harmed me at all in any way. Its in the past. It is a serious allegation to make, but youre a kid, you make mistakes.

He didnt know how old I was, and I didnt know how old he was at the time. I cannot stress enough that the messages were harmless.

15. Man finds amazing haul of ?10,000 worth of buried treasure in an Essex field03:55[−]

A MAN discovered an amazing haul of ?10,000 worth of buried treasure after spending four days searching a field in Essex.

Chris Kutler’s hoard of ancient gold coins are believed to have been buried with an Anglo-Saxon king nearly 1,500 years ago.

The 54-year-old, from South West London, said: “It is kind of the Holy Grail of metal detectoring. It was an incredible feeling to find the coins.

“When I found the first, I thought it was a wasp. I got a flash of yellow and threw it back but then I realised what it was.

“It was the best feeling in the world, especially after four days of hard work.”

Chris, who has been metal detectoring for more than 25 years, also found rare Anglo-Saxon coins at the same site 18 years ago, which are now housed at the British Museum.

He chose to go back after reading an article which suggested more coins would be still in the ground.

“I decided to rake the top soil off and get down to the compact soil [underneath], and scanned the area off in 100 square metres, and did every one individually,” said Chris.

“I thought I really need to do it because this is the last time I am going to do it. I needed to go back.

“I have already been back and searched the area thoroughly and nothing has come up.”

The coins are from the Dark Ages, around 620-640AD, and are classed as a hoard, which is usually associated with high status, or even Royal burials.

Chris, from London, said: “I started collecting data about place names, I would locate the name of the place, and field names often indicate archaeological activity.

“If you find one coin there are probably many.”

The coins, called Tremissis, that Chris found earlier this month and nearly twenty years ago were used by the Merovingians who ruled over what we know as France today, and also beyond towards Saxony.

According to law, treasure is “two or more coins from the same find, at least 300 years old, and contain at least 10 percent gold.”

He’s sent the coins off to the British Museum for analysis bit it will take up to a year for them to complete their investigation.

16. Black comedy Suburbicon offers a fun few hours with its grotesquely daft undertones03:48[−]

FILMS can sometimes be crushed by the weight of expectation.

Suburbicon, directed by George Clooney and developed with the Coen Brothers, has been given a right royal drubbing by most?.?.?. but not me. I loved it.

2017 Paramount Pictures
Juilianne Moore and Matt Damon star in George Clooney’s Suburbicon[/caption]

Sure, it shows its hand early and a fair bit misses the mark, but there is more than enough wicked dark comedy.

Its 1957 in Suburbicon and if you scratch just below its idyllic surface, youll find a festering heap of violence, racism and greed.

Two stories run parallel.

In one, a robbery leaves a woman dead and a resulting insurance claim raises a few flags.

The other focuses on an African-American family moving to the neighbourhood and the escalating racial hatred that follows.

But the two never really combine in a satisfying way.

The cast is top notch, Julianne Moore in particular relishing her pantomime villain role, and Matt Damon being particularly daft.

Moore makes for a great villain in this dark comedy while Damon comes across particularly daft
Black Bear Pictures

Theres a terrific performance from Noah Jupe as Damons characters young son Nicky, but Oscar Isaac as insurance investigator Bud steals every scene.

There were enough hints of Coens, a glimpse of Wes Anderson and a coating of Clooneys sense of humour here for me to have a really fun few hours with this grotesquely daft black comedy.

17. Tom Baker returns to Doctor Who for first time in 36 years as fans will FINALLY see legendary lost episode03:47[−]

TOM Baker is returning to the TARDIS for the first time in 36 years after an iconic ‘lost’ Doctor Who story, Shada.

The 83-year-old actor, who played the fourth regeneration of the Doctor for seven years and is the longest running person to take on the role to date.

Tom Baker will return as the Fourth Doctor in new DVD, Shada

However, the never-aired episode Shada has become legendary as the lost episode after it was left incomplete in 1979 due to strike action.

Now, Producer Charles Norton was tasked by BBC Worldwide with the job of finally completing the serial – and it will now be available to all.

Tom has even returned to appear in a newly shot final scene which takes place in his original TARDIS from 1979 – sourced from the now-closed exhibition, the Doctor Who Experience.

In the scene, Tom appears from underneath the TARDIS controls to utter the lines from the original script on screen for the first time, saying: “I expect that sometime in the future – in about 200 years’ time – someone will meet me and say, ‘Is that really the Doctor? He seemed such a nice old man.’ ”

The character was famed for his iconic scarf and trench coat

Speaking about his return as the Time Lord, Tom said: “It was a matter of regret that I couldn’t finish it, I regretted it very much. There were other aspects. ”

He added: “When I was doing ‘Doctor Who’ it was the realisation of all my childhood fantasies, so I took to it like a duck to water, as they say. And I still do.”

BBC

Revealing why he jumped at the chance to appear on screen as the Doctor once more, the acting legend added: “I love doing ‘Doctor Who’ because it was life to me.

“It’s an amazing thing to be in … It probably has never left me, and that’s why I can’t stay away from it. It was a lovely time of my life.”

The 82-year-old will appear in one last adventure in time and space thanks to the lost episode, Shada
BBC

Shada is set in Cambridge and showed the Doctor, his robot dog K9 and his companion Romana team up with retired Time Lord Professor Chronotis to defeat the evil alien Skagra who is attempting to steal the secrets to the prison planet Shada.

The episode will be released as a digital download via iTunes on Friday November 24, and then is available on DVD and Blu-ray from Monday, December 4.

18. Rebekah Vardys first husband wants to see her go through hell on Im a Celebrity03:44[−]

REBEKAH Vardy’s ex-husband has revealed that watching her on I’m A Celebrity is a major treat – as he likes seeing her “scream a bit” as she goes “through hell”.

Mark Godden even says that to make sure Rebekah – now married to Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy – is suffering, he gets his family and friends to vote for her to do Bushtucker Trials.

Rex Features
The ex-husband of Rebekah Vardy has been really enjoying seeing her on I’m A Celeb – for the wrong reasons[/caption]

Electronics pro Mark, who met Rebekah when he was 21 and she was 18, still holds a grudge against his ex and even claims she cheated on him with a jet ski instructor.

She still vehemently denies the accusation, but bitter Mark – who divorced her in 2003 – clearly feels karma is being served up when he sees the normally glamorous WAG munching live bugs on his telly box.

Reflecting on I’m A Celeb, 38-year-old Mark told The Mirror: Im an avid fan and this year its even better because my ex is on it.

While I dont want to see her win, although shed love to, I want her to go through hell.

Rex Features
Rebekah chomps down on some disgusting bugs[/caption]

“We are all voting for her to get to the trials because we want her to suffer. We all want her to scream a bit.

Rebekah, who lives in a ?1.25m eight-bed house in Leicester with Jamie, has confessed to sleeping with Peter Andre recently – and Mark claims this happened while they were still an item.

However, Rebekah believes they were in fact “separated”, though in her jungle revelation she stated: “I told [Peter] I was married. I wanted to be honest and I knew my marriage was coming to an end.”

In addition, Mark maintains that Rebekah is “expensive to look after” loves designer clothes and even spent his ?4,6000 redundancy package on them, despite her saying in the jungle that she still shops in Next.

Rebekah and Mark on their wedding day

He may be the only one who hasn’t enjoyed being married to her, but Mark actually isn’t the only one who has been voting for Rebekah to do the dreaded eating trials.

Her current husband Jamie has been doing exactly that via the ITV app to ensure that she will munch a plate full of witchetty grubs on telly.

Rex Features
Ms Vardy shrieks as shes presented with a horrendous animal foot drink[/caption]

The ?100k-a-week footie star posted a tweet to confirm this, writing: “Bexs face when she finds out that I voted for her 5 times on the app to do the eating trial..

“Sorry babe just wanted everyone to see that youre fearless & you proved me right.”

Rex Features
Mum-of-two Rebekah takes to the famous jungle shower[/caption]

Though Jamie and Mark are getting pleasure from seeing Rebekah in the Aussie jungle, her first husband is not actually sure why she’s on the show because shes not a celebrity, she just happens to be married to an England footballer.

He also admitted: Ive had no contact since our divorce but you cant help hearing about her.

Responding to Mark’s comments, Rebekah’s reps released a statement reading: Perhaps his memory of the marriage isnt entirely clear as many of his claims arent accurate.

“There was no infidelity whilst she was married to Mark and once they agreed to separate, she went on to live her own life, as did Mark.

Jamie Vardy has been married to Rebekah since 2016

“She was a very damaged teenager when she met Mark.

“He proposed when she was still a teenager and she agreed because she felt like it was the right thing to do as he and his family had been so good to her.

“She quickly realised she shouldnt have married him and they agreed to separate. It was kinder to separate than to stay in a loveless marriage, no one can blame a teenage girl for that.

“Becky would continue to wish Mr Godden all the best with his life,” they added.

I’m A Celebrity continues tomorrow night at 9pm on ITV.

19. Straight-talking waitress turned country music star Margo Price talks about her struggles as an outcast and her rise to becoming Nashvilles kickass talent03:41[−]

MEET the straight-talking saviour of country music (yes, really!)?.?.?.?waitress turned sensation Margo Price.

When I say country, this refreshingly honest singer is versed in Nashville honky-tonk, Memphis soul, rock n roll, folk, blues, you name it.

Danielle Holbert
Margo Price is the waitress turned country singer[/caption]

Shes cut from the same cloth as the original authentic women of country such as Loretta Lynn and Dolly Parton as well as outlaws Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and Waylon Jennings.

Despite referencing the past, shes a forward-facing, kickass talent for the 21st century.

Prices fervent new album, All American Made, her second for Jack Whites Third Man Records, takes aim at a United States shifting on its political axis and fellow singers that are keeping quiet.

So here, exclusively for SFTW, she brings her story up to date.

Danielle Holbert
About her music she says I know a lot of country artists play it safe and let their label castrate their art, but I have freedom[/caption]

Describe your life before your breakthrough debut album?

Before my debut, I felt like an outcast in Nashville. I had been treading the same waters in town for years, playing tiny shows in dive bars and small venues.

There were occasional glimmers of hope but nothing really changed. No one wanted to sign me or take the time to hear what I had to say.

I always looked at the mainstream country world as something I had no place in. And I still feel that way sometimes, you know? Like an outsider. Lucky for me, being an outsider is very fashionable these days!

Getty - Contributor
Singer/songwriter Margo Price performs at Spotlight[/caption]

And how has it changed with the success youve had?

Everybody wants to hear a fairy tale story, but life still has its ups and downs. I am so happy I dont have to work as a waitress any more and can afford health insurance for me and my family.

That being said, instead of working long hours waitressing, Im working long hours out on the road.

I dont have very much free time to hang out with friends. Even though its challenging being gone, and the schedules can be gruelling, I wouldnt trade this for anything in the world.

Getty - Contributor

Would you describe yourself as a late bloomer?.?.?.?or is the world just catching up?

Late bloomer? Hell no?.?.?.?30 is the new 20. I’ve always been here, doing my thing, just that nobody was watching before.

Your music appears on Third Man Records, to what extent has Jack White helped you?

Jack is a great support. He has a good ear for talent and always offers good advice.

Third Man encourages me to be myself and do what comes naturally.

Danielle Holbert
The singer is said to be made from the same cloth as Dolly Parton[/caption]

It is finding talent and nourishing it. Without it, I would never have found my footing in Music City, USA.

In which ways is All American Made a progression from Midwest Farmers Daughter?

On my first album, I was telling honest stories about my life and my experience in the music industry.

Many songs represented giving the larger Nashville establishment and music row the finger.

This Town Gets Around was about abuse and unfair treatment of young women in the business.

All American Made continues where I left off. It deals with many of the same topics but on a broader scale: Family vs factory farms, misogyny and sexism, politics.

Im looking at what is going on in the world and talking in relatively plainspoken, everyday language about what I see.

Getty - Contributor
Margo Price performs on stage during Take Root Festival at Oosterpoort[/caption]

Describe your duet with Willie Nelson and why hes so special?

Willie Nelson has a Buddhist-like quality about him. He never seems to get stressed out. He always has a new joke to tell me and a big smile on his face.

He took a lot of time and care into laying down the vocals and guitar parts on Trigger, of course (his legendary guitar).

Willie was very encouraging about the recording and the writing on Learning To Lose.

Having him give his stamp of approval on what we do was more valuable than any award or accolade that I could ever receive. Hes a poet and an American hero.

Margo says her favourite albums are My favourite new albums are by Father John Misty, Kendrick Lamar and Kurt Vile & Courtney Barnett

Tell us the Nashville-based inspiration behind Cocaine Cowboys?

Haha. Well, its a character study about people who are more focused on the fashion and the party than the actual substance and originality in their music. Its real people and real problems.

You have a strong voice, do you mind upsetting the establishment?

Nope. I think people need to hear this stuff.

When Loretta Lynn wrote The Pill, she wasnt worried about who she was p*****g off or the fact that it got banned from many country radio stations before it even came out.

The strange thing is that to this very day the song still rings true!

Many women are STILL fighting the same battles over our bodies, birth control and equal rights.

I know a lot of country artists who want to play it safe and they let their record label castrate their art, but I have freedom and the support of my label.

Im not here to be censored or domesticated. I like being different from the rest.

The world is in such turmoil right now that I couldnt imagine not speaking my mind against issues

like white supremacy, bigotry and hate. I will not let fear silence me.

RECORD COMPANY
Being signed to Jack Whites Third Man Record she says ‘Jack is a great support. He has a good ear for talent and always offers good advice’[/caption]

Whats your take on the mainstream country scene?

Honestly, I dont pay much attention to it. Theres enough real music out there so I dont bother listening to it.

I enjoy all different genres. My favourite new albums are by Father John Misty, Kendrick Lamar and Kurt Vile & Courtney Barnett.

Townes Van Zandt said: There are two kinds of music, the blues and Zippidy-do-dah. Needless to say, I prefer the blues.

I know a lot of country artists play it safe and let their label castrate their art, but I have freedom

Margo PriceSinger

And why is Pay Gap such an important song?

Ive been passionate about the pay gap for years. A lot of people dont believe that it even exists and this song is for them.

Most women in the US are getting 79 cents to every dollar a man makes.

Its not set to close for another 100 years and Ill be long gone by then, but I want to be remembered as someone who fought for equality for all.

Why did you dedicate the album to the late Tom Petty?

He was one of my biggest influences growing up. I loved hearing his honest songs pouring out over the radio waves in a time when most music was becoming more sterilised and electronic.

Tom never compromised who he was or what he did when people tried to screw him over in the music business.

Im so sad Ill never get to meet him and that hell never get to answer the question in my song: Tell me Mr Petty what do you think will happen next thats all American Made? We released the album on his birthday and it was a no brainer to dedicate the album to a rock and roll legend, a prolific writer an icon.

What of the future?

Im working on a score for a feminist western starring Laura Dern. Very excited to be part of that.

I hope to publish a book of poetry someday?.?.?.?and as far as family life goes, my husband and son and I are looking for a home in the country.

I travel so much that I really want to retreat when I get home to Tennessee.

25. YouTube slammed for making money from big brand ads on videos of scantily clad kids03:27[−]

YOUTUBE has been warned it is in danger of becoming a “sweet shop for paedophiles” as the site profits off advertisements on exploitative videos.

Big brands have pulled their advertising from Youtube on the eve of Black Friday after it was revealed their advertisements were running before videos that can be used by paedophiles to view and share more links to abusive material.

Youtube has been criticised for allowing inappropriate content to be shared

The advertisements allow those who publish the videos to be paid – with a creator typically receiving 55 per cent of all revenue, with the remainder going to Youtube.

Tim Loughton, a Tory member of the home affairs select committee, told The Times: “Yet again it appears that YouTubes rhetoric about taking child safeguarding seriously nowhere matches its actions.

“Their platforms are in danger of being used as a sweet shop for paedophiles.”

The clips can attract millions of views, with people able to watch young girls in their underwear, in bed and doing the splits.

Big names including BT, Adidas, eBay, Amazon, Mars and Talktalk have been slammed for allowing their advertisements to run before the clips – but many have already yanked their campaigns from Youtube.

Adidas said the situation was completely unacceptable, with Diageo issuing an “immediate stop” on their advertising.

Tony Stower, public and policy affairs manager at the NSPCC, said: “This is yet another example of why it is not good enough for sites like YouTube to be marking their own homework.

“Government intervention is vital to protect children from the moment they sign up to social networks.”

It comes after it was revealed children are being “exploited” by parents who film them in discomfort and pain.

While many of the videos targeted at children are perfectly innocent, some disturbing clips are cropping up on YouTube.

Among them are vlogs, starring children but filmed and set-up by parents, where kids are visibly in distress, being sick or are in pain.

A dad was also disgusted after his three-year-old son inadvertently watched a fake episode of Peppa Pig featuring a paedophile dentist and mentions of a “plastic penis”.

26. Tottenham Hotspur get jobless Brits fit for work with training to boost confidence and gain skills03:25[−]

PREMIER League Spurs are helping the unemployed find work and get fit.

The clubs new Reignite project is aimed at jobseekers aged over 50.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR FOOTBALL CLUB
The Reignite programme hopes to help 100 people from the community each year[/caption]

Tottenham Hotspur Foundations Employment and Skills team will work with participants to build confidence and gain new skills.

The aim is to also provide the chance to network and open doors to employment opportunities within the area. Reignite aims to support 100 people in the clubs communities each year.

Evidence suggests older jobseekers are more likely to claim health or care related benefits, reducing their ability and availability to work.

Spurs will work closely with local and national employers to create opportunities for Reignite participants, bringing a new dimension to their workforce.

Elaine Patterson said she felt more confident after joining

Elaine Patterson, aged 50 from Tottenham, was one of the first participants to join Reignite.

She said: The programme has exceeded my expectations. When I joined I was unemployed, lacked confidence, and hadnt exercised for years.

After ten weeks of working with the Foundation coaches, Ive turned a corner. Im more confident, I eat healthier and I have more stamina and a better mental wellbeing.

Tottenham Hotspur Foundations Nikki Kelly said: We look forward to helping more over-50s in the community.

How you get on...

Over a lifetime of work, the average person will have three major arguments and 705 minor disagreements with their work colleagues, according to recent research.

In Get Better, author Todd Davis shows how to get on with our colleagues on a day-to-day basis, and how to make those relationships work for us.

Here are his suggestions:

THINK WE, NOT ME: If you realise theres enough for everyone you will be able to care as much about others wins as you care about your own.

TALK LESS, LISTEN MORE: One of the most profound gifts you can give to another human being is understanding. When somebody is talking to you, focus and hear what they are really saying.

EXTEND TRUST: The majority of relationship snags are rarely caused by people trusting too much; they are caused by people trusting too little.

START WITH HUMILITY: If you are serious about building relationships that work, start with humility.

WEAR GLASSES THAT WORK: If were too invested in our point of view, we may miss seeing the true potential in ourselves or others.

29. Parents warned to switch off cameras on childrens Christmas presents to foil perv hack attacks03:16[−]

PARENTS have been urged to turn off the cameras and tracking devices on their children’s Christmas presents to avoid hackers.

The Information Commissioners’ Office issued the warning after the number of “smart” toys and devices on kids’ wish lists soared.

Parents have been urged to turn off the cameras and tracking devices on their children’s Christmas presents to avoid hackers

The Data Regulator urged parents thinking of gifting the devices to consider the safety concerns of their children being connected to the internet from a young age.

It comes amid growing fears over the potential for criminals to hack into toys using microphones, cameras, sensors and data storage.

Deputy Commissioner Steve Wood advised parents to turn off the functions if they are not planning on personally using them to monitor their children.

In a blog on the regulators website Mr Wood wrote: You wouldnt knowingly give a child a dangerous toy, so why risk buying them something that could be easily hacked into by strangers?

The advice follows last year’s baby monitor scandal, in which hackers were able to hijack and stream live feeds from the cameras, or use them to talk to youngsters.

Mr Wood added: “Some toys and devices are fitted with web cameras. The ability to view footage remotely is both their biggest selling point and, if not set up correctly, potentially their biggest weakness.

Unlike Santa, those looking to hack into your devices dont care whether youve been naughty or nice.

The warnings follow last year’s baby monitor scandal, in which the devices were hacked and streamed online

Parents are also advised to switch off Bluetooth on the devices, and set strong passwords to protect their children.

Mr Wood said: “One of the main selling points of childrens smart watches is the ability for parents to know where their children are at all times.

“However, if this isnt done securely, then others might have access to this data as well.

“Immediately get rid of default location tracking and GPS settings and set strong, unique passwords.

She said: “They came to burgle us but they also came to hurt us”.

The 21-year-old was woken at 1:30am when she heard boyfriend Philip shout: “Take what you want but don’t hurt the baby.”

One of the intruders had taken a butcher’s knife from the kitchen and “held it to Finley’s throat and said, ‘where’s all the stuff?'”

Nicole, from Belfast, Northern Ireland, told BelfastLive: “To stand there over a cot with a knife in your hand, you mean harm.”

The 21-year-old told how her mum Tina held off one of the robbers while she called the police[/caption]

She added: “We only have each other and we were so scared that someone was going to be killed.”

Electronics including a laptop, a mobile phone and a purse were stolen as well as toys meant as presents.

Nicole’s dad Finbar, 42, was murdered in the south of the city in December 2013.

She said he “must have been looking over us” as no one was hurt in the terrifying raid at the home she shares with mum Tina, sister Katie and 7-year-old brother Joe.

Brave Tina even tried to fight off one of the brutes who was lunging at her with a blade while Nicole called the police.

Nicole said: “Mum was shouting at them not to hurt her kids but we were worried she would be stabbed”.

Police have made two arrests but the family are still too scared to return to their home in Stranmillis Gardens near Queen’s University.

“I just can’t ever go back to that house, knowing strangers were in there and what happened”, Nicole added.

She later wrote online: “Just thanking my lucky stars I have my family safe absolutely terrifying”.

Det Sgt Philip McCullagh from the PSNI said: “Police received a report at around 2.10am that two males had gained entry into a house.

“The males were reported to be armed with knives taken from the kitchen of the property.

“When confronted by one of the female occupants, the two males fled the scene with a number of items including a laptop, mobile phone and a purse.”

“Police subsequently stopped two men nearby who matched the description given by the occupant and a number of items were recovered.”

Det Sgt McCullagh added: “Two men aged 25 and 30 were arrested on suspicion of a number of offences including aggravated burglary and assault on police and are currently in custody helping police with their enquiries.

“Police are appealing to anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the area or who may have information which could help them with their enquiries to contact the Reducing Offending Unit on 101 quoting reference number 71 of 23/11/2017.

“Information can also be given anonymously through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”

35. Im a Celebrity viewers convinced Stanley Johnson FARTED at the beginning of Bushtucker trial03:04[−]

THIS year’s I’m a Celebrity campmates have been spending the past four days living almost completely on rice and beans – and it appears to have caught up with them.

Viewers on tonight’s episode of the ITV jungle show were left in hysterics as it appeared a celebrity let out a massive fart on their way to the bushtucker trial clearing.

A loud farting sound went off as he entered the clearing

It didn’t take long for them to find a culprit to accuse – the first person to enter the clearing, Stanley Johnson.

The loud parping sound was picked up clearly by the microphones, just as Ant and Dec burst out laughing.

Taking to Twitter, the audience at home needed to make sure that they weren’t making things up and had heard what they thought.

One wrote: “Did anyone hear stanley fart ? I’m sure I heard Stanley fart entering the trials haha I demand a replay ???#ExtraCamp #ImACeleb

Ant and Dec appeared to be sniggering at something as the trial started

Viewers at home were left giggling and convinced they just heard Stanley let one go

Another appealed to Ant and Dec directly and asked them: “ @antanddec did someone fart when the group came to sit down to learn that there were going to be 2 new camp mates? Have a listen #imaceleb

While another just laughed off the toot by saying: “Did someone just fart as they entered the camp bit for the task? ??#ImACelebrity2017 #imaceleb”

While it hasn’t been confirmed, viewers are convinced that it was Stanley who farted

The team all went to the clearing to welcome two new campers

Luckily for Stanley, he was saved from a possible trying as it was revealed two new campmates would be joining them.

However, it didn’t take too long for the former politician to clash with new recruit Iain Lee.

The pair ended up butting heads over Iain’s new role as jungle Prime Minister – and Stanley not adhering to the rules to not do any of the chores he hasn’t been assigned.

Last year and the year before that Apple didn’t take part in Black Friday at all, possibly because it didn’t have to or possibly because it didn’t want to, your guess is as good as ours.

The Sun Online has contacted Apple to see if it will be getting involved this year but they are yet to comment.

In the meantime its retailers are willing to step up to the plate and drop the prices in the name of Black Friday bargains.

So the first thing you need to know is to avoid the Apple website if youre looking for some iOffers.

Where can I buy Apple iPads, iPhones and Macs on sale?

If you are desperate to get your hands on an apple product this year your best bet is to check out Amazon and Argos as they both stock a large number of Apple products.

Both companies will be taking part in Black Friday in a big way so are likely to heavily discount some of their more popular items including Macs and iPads.

It is not yet clear if Apple will take part in Black Friday this year

Keep an eye as they continue to make reductions and bookmark products you are really keen on so you can look quickly on the day and check the price.

The danger of Black Friday is that you can get swept up in the excitement of the mega-shopping day and start trowing things in your (physical or online) trolley willy-nilly.

The best advice is to be sensible and plan ahead. Decide what you need and target those items specifically on the day.

When all the Black Friday items have been released check the price on offer and then confirm with rival retailers including Apple themselves before making your purchase.

43. Nine families buried or cremated the wrong body after serious mortuary errors, study says03:01[−]

HOSPITAL mortuary staff have released the wrong corpses to funeral parlours, a study found with many buried or cremated before the mistake was spotted.

Post-mortems have been performed on the wrong bodies and relatives faced the trauma of a second funeral.

Many relatives have had to face the trauma of a second funeral[/caption]

Researchers analysed all 132 reports to the NHS over the mismanagement of patients after death from 2002 to 2013.

They found funeral directors were sent the wrong body 25 times, with nine buried or cremated.

Five corpses were lost entirely, with 13 post-mortem mix-ups. Seven bodies were disfigured when dropped or struck while being moved around the mortuary.

Fifteen decomposed, often when not refrigerated properly, the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine reported.

Errors were blamed on failing to follow procedure, misconduct and overwork.

Study chief Iain Yardley, from Evelina London Childrens Hospital, said: Civilised society expects that a body will be accorded the same dignity and respect as during life.

46. ASDA Black Friday 2017 how to find the best deals and discounts03:01[−]

IT WAS one of the biggest retailers to introduce Black Friday to the UK – and could Asda be set to make a comeback to this year’s sales?

The US-owned store was one of the main players in the sales bonanza since it first joined in the fun in 2013.

The supermarket giant could be returning to the Black Friday sales after a two-year absence

PA:Press Association

BUT for the last two years the retailer has taken a back seat after footage from a London shop in 2014 showed shoppers fighting over cut-price televisions.

The retail giant hasn’t confirmed if it will take part, and The Sun Online understands it currently will be unlikely to make a return.

Why didn’t Asda take part in Black Friday last year?

Last year Asda said it was ditching Black Friday in favour of “lower prices all year round” and didn’t want to pressure customers to spend in a “flash-sale”.

And it wasn’t the only big retailer either.

Ikea, Next and Homebase were among the other chains that didn’t take part.

Back in 2014, customers at the Wembley branch in London had to be separated by staff amid furious exchanges over discounted products.

This year’s sale is set to take place on Friday, November 24 and lots of retailers have already confirmed they will be taking part.

And if Asda does make a Black Friday return, it will be sure to slash prices on everything from TVs to computer consoles and more.

How much will my ASDA delivery cost?

Grocery shoppers can book a delivery slot for between ?1 and ?3 depending on the time and day of delivery.

The store also offers a delivery pass for anytime delivery in one, six and 12 month deals.

Prices start at ?8 for a one month pass and ?35 for a six month pass.

49. Black Friday 2017 sale is here the ultimate guide to finding the best deals and discounts03:01[−]

SHOPPERS are expected to splash out a massive ?2.6billion today as retailers slash prices for Black Friday.

This year, big names including Amazon, Argos, Currys PC World, John Lewis, Halfords and Morrisons have already started cutting prices.

We take a look at some of the best Black Friday deals
The Sun

While fashion brands, like New Look, ASOS and River Island, are offering up to 25 per cent off.

Retailers are readying themselves for another record Black Friday despite days of sales ahead of the event and warnings to consumers to disregard the hype and spend sensibly.

The global sales bonanza – originally a 24-hour affair – now comes after two weeks of intense effort by retailers to lure customers with bargains, yet is still expected to set another record tomorrow as the UK’s biggest shopping day.

Retailers are promising a fresh set of deals from midnight online, and a number of big-name chains are extending their high street opening hours to cope with expected customer enthusiasm.

Among them are some John Lewis stores that are slightly extending their opening hours, a “few” Argos outlets opening early and 187 Tesco Extra stores that are closing at 1am and reopening at 5am on Black Friday, while a further 62 will open at 6am after preparing for the event.

Our tips for finding the best deals this Black Friday

IT might be tempting to dive in and snap up LOADS of items on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but heres how you can guarantee youre getting a good deal.

PREPARE Make sure that you do your research BEFORE Black Friday hits. Research the items you want to buy and find out the cheapest price. Websites like PriceSpy, PriceHistory and CamelCamelCamel will give you historical data on prices so you can see how much you should pay.

SAVE Add items to your online shopping basket or save the links to your bookmarks to revisit on the day.

GET FOLLOWING Follow your favourite shops on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and sign up to its deals newsletter to get the latest on any offers. We post the best deals in our Sun Money FB group too.

EARN CASHBACK Check websites like Quidco and TopCashback BEFORE you place your order. Cashback websites PAY you to shop. All you have to do is click through their links and the money is added to your online account, usually within 14 days.

Tesco said last year’s Black Friday, which lasted a week for the supermarket giant, saw more than six million visits to the Tesco Direct website, a 40 per cent increase on a typical week.

Argos recorded its biggest-ever day of sales last year and John Lewis had its biggest week for sales in its 153-year history.

But experts point to the event moving increasingly online and expect high street figures will be up just 4 per cent on last year, with past scenes of in-store brawls over cut-price televisions unlikely to be repeated.

Britons are expected to spend ?2.6 billion tomorrow alone – an 8 per cent increase overall on last year – and ?7.8 billion over the four-day period from Black Friday to Cyber Monday, up 7 per cent on last year, according to predictions by VoucherCodes and the Centre for Retail Research (CRR).

Their figures suggest that Cyber Monday could even overtake Black Friday by ?7 million to become the biggest day for online and offline spending this year, with an estimated 21.5 million Britons expected to take part in the traditionally online event.

Which shops offer deals during Black Friday?

HERE are all the retailers running Black Friday deals:

A survey by consumer group Which? has already indicated that more than half of deals last year were the same price or cheaper months either side of the event and has urged consumers to research prices thoroughly before buying tomorrow.

MoneySavingExpert said: “If you were planning to buy something worth ?100 anyway and it’s 30 per cent off, it’s a saving. If the same item isn’t on your list, it’s a ?70 cost.”

Jo Causon, chief executive of the the Institute of Customer Service, said: “Retailers should not view Black Friday simply as an opportunity to shift discounted stock. They must uphold a responsibility to ensure customers receive a high quality experience too.”

Last year, 63 per cent of people made a purchase on Black Friday, according to the institute’s research, with an average spend of ?185.


CASHING IN We reveal how you can get PAID to shop this Black Friday with cashback websites


Ms Causon added: “Canny retailers should take note: customers are for life, not just for Christmas.

“Those seduced by quick sales and chasing revenue will do themselves a long-term disservice by selling out short-term customers. This is not sustainable and Black Friday isn’t the answer to easing shareholder concerns.”

56. Millions of people overcharged by home insurance firms heres how you could save ?110 a year03:01[−]

UP to 13MILLION households are being overcharged for their home insurance – simply for renewing their existing policy.

On average, homeowners are being overcharged by ?110 a year by falling into the loyalty trap, new analysis from Citizens Advice has revealed.

Homeowners are paying ?110 more on average for their insurance by failing to switch

It said older people are particularly at risk of being hit in the pocket, with 40 per cent of people over 65 having the same policy for more than five years.

That means they could be paying as much as 70 per cent more than a new customer would be for the same policy.

Auto-renewing your home or car insurance policy is a big no-no if you want to cut down on your costs.

Research from comparison website GoCompare found that Brits were chucking away ?260 a year by letting their car insurance premiums auto-renew.

It also found that insurance customers were caught in a “vicious cycle” of monthly payments, paying ?113 more on average when compared to those who pay in one go.

Earlier this year, city watchdog, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) introduced new rules which aimed to make it clearer to customers how much their premium would go up by if they renewed.

Citizens’ Advice found that half of customers couldn’t work out an unfair charge on their premium[/caption]

Firms were required to show last year’s premium when it came to renewal time and encourage customers to shop around for the best deal.

But some firms haven’t been following the rules properly and Citizens’ Advice has now called on the the regulator to make sure all customers avoid the loyalty trap.

Gillian Guy, chief exec of Citizens’ Advice, said: Home insurance companies are taking advantage of peoples loyalty, and its older people who are suffering the most.

The FCA must stop home insurance providers overcharging customers. Vulnerable customers are the hardest hit and must be protected from this unfair practice.

The charity found that consumers are left baffled about their home insurance policies.

Only half of customers were confident they could identify unfair charges in their premium.

How to cut your home and car insurance bill

You're throwing good money away if you let your insurance premiums auto renew. Here's what you can do to save money.

Shop around: Never accept the premium that is offered by your current insurer and never auto-renew. Use a price comparison site like comparethemarket or moneysupermarket to see what deal you can get. If your insurer can’t match it, then switch.

Improve security: Adding an imobiliser to your car or an alarm to your home can bring down the price of your premium. Try not to make a claim as the fewer claims you make, the lower your premium will be.

Pay in one go: If you can afford to pay your premium in a lump sum, then do so as you will save money over the course of the year.

60. Muhammad Alis doctor Ferdie Pacheco died full of remorse that he couldnt save the legendary boxer02:59[−]

IF only Muhammad Ali had taken Ferdie Pachecos advice he could be alive today, enjoying life into a ripe old age.

Pacheco, Alis doctor and cornerman for 15 years, begged him to quit boxing after he had beaten Joe Frazier in the Thrilla in Manila in 1975 six years and ten fights before he eventually retired.

Ferdie, who died eight days ago, three weeks before his 90th birthday, was always full of remorse that he had failed to save Ali from himself.

The man who was known as the Fight Doctor went to work for Cassius Clay in 1962 and remarked he was the most physically perfect human being he had ever seen.

But, according to Pacheco, by the time of his third fight with Frazier 15 years later, Ali was a well that had run dry.

His body was deteriorating rapidly, vital organs were failing and, as a result of increasing neurological damage, his speech was beginning to slur and his movements had slowed.

Pacheco told me many times his one overriding regret was that he could not make Ali understand he was heading for a premature death by refusing to hang up his gloves.

Ferdie remained with him until 1977.

But after watching him take more terrible punishment as he struggled to win another brutal 15-round battle, this time against Earnie Shavers in Madison Square Garden, his conscience would not allow him to continue any further.

Reluctantly, he turned his back on Ali after his fears about the legends health were confirmed by Dr Frank Guardino, of the New York State Athletic Commission, shortly after his victory over Shavers.

Ali died aged 74 on June 3, 2016.

Pacheco, in one of his books, revealed: Dr Guardino gave me a report that showed Alis kidneys were falling apart.

And he said to me, Ferdie, you had better advise him to quit. I wont make these findings of impending kidney damage public but I wont let him fight in New York again.

Pacheco sent letters to Ali, his third wife Veronica, trainer Angelo Dundee and manager Herbert Muhammad, spelling out the grave danger he was in if he carried on fighting.

Pacheco added: It was no surprise when I didnt get a response to any of those letters.

Thats when I decided enough was enough. If a national treasure like Ali could not be saved, at least I didnt have to be part of his undoing.

After he had made that decision, Ferdie always expressed horror that Ali was still being encouraged to continue by those closest to him.

He loved Ali like a brother and, reflecting on his friends brave battle with Parkinsons disease and the years they spent together, he said: I was hoping he would live a nice long life.

He shouldnt have to pay such a price. He chose to pay for it, thats true.

61. Uma Thurman hints at being Harvey Weinstein victim on Instagram as she slams sleazy moguls wicked conspirators02:40[−]

UMA Thurman has hinted she may have been a victim of Harvey Weinstein on Instagram as she slammed the sleazy mogul’s “wicked conspirators”.

The Pulp Fiction star, who previously said she was “waiting to feel less angry” before discussing allegations of sexual assault, added her thoughts to the viral Me Too hashtag today.

Writing on the social media platform, she wrote: “I am grateful today, to be alive, for all those I love, and for all those who have the courage to stand up for others.

“I said I was angry recently, and I have a few reasons, #metoo, in case you couldnt tell by the look on my face.

“I feel its important to take your time, be fair, be exact, so… Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

“(Except you Harvey, and all your wicked conspirators – Im glad its going slowly – you dont deserve a bullet) – stay tuned.”

The accompanying image is of her starring in Kill Bill: Volume 2 – a film produced by Weinstein’s company Miramax, in which her character, the Bride, says she’s driving to finally get revenge on the person who wronged her most.

The movie mogul has been accused of offences ranging from sexual harassment and rape by dozens of women.

Thurman gave an emotional interview to Access Hollywood about the scandal at the screening of her new film The Parisian Woman last month, but stopped short of making any accusations herself.

The 47-year-old calmly told the reporter that she was waiting until her anger subsides to address the issue.

She said: “I don’t have a tidy soundbite for you, because I’ve learned I’m not a child, and I’ve learned that when I’ve spoken in anger I usually regret the way I express myself.

“So I’ve been waiting to feel less angry. And when I’m ready, I’ll say what I have to say.”

Thurman worked with Weinstein and his production company seven times during her career.

Weinstein is under investigation by police in New York, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and the UK and has denied claims of non-consensual sex.

62. Jack Wilshere admits he could be forced to leave Arsenal in search of first-team football after starting 1-0 Europa League defeat in Koln02:39[−]

JACK WILSHERE has admitted he may be forced to leave Arsenal as he chases first team football.

The England midfielder has only featured twice in the Premier League this season, with his appearances being largely restricted to the Europa League.

And, speaking after the Gunners’ 1-0 defeat to Koln, he claimed the lack of playing time is making him question his future.

He said: “Of course I want to be playing. It’s difficult when you play every three weeks.

“It’s the same as every player. I’m still determined to win my place back, I’m working hard and we’ll see what the future holds.

“If I can get in or I can’t.”

Wilshere spent last season on loan at Bournemouth, but had his campaign cut short after suffering a broken leg during a clash against Tottenham.

He returned to the Emirates and made his long-awaited Premier League return for Arsenal during the 5-2 victory at Everton on October 22.

But, since then, he has only featured as a late substitute in the 3-1 defeat at Manchester City.

Wilshere, 25, has played all five Europa League games, as well as both EFL Cup matches.

63. Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus determined to keep his amazing unbeaten run going in bid for the Premier League title02:39[−]

GABRIEL JESUS must have forgotten what it is like to lose a match.

More than a year has passed since the Brazilian last tasted defeat in a club game, for either former side Palmeiras or Manchester City.

Gabriel Jesus is determined to keep his incredible unbeaten run going

PA:Press Association

That is a run of 34 competitive games with his incredible record reading P33 W27 D6 L0.

Had it not been for Brazils World Cup qualifying defeat to Argentina in June, the strikers record for club AND country would have stood at 43 without defeat, including 33 victories.

Jesus last club loss was a 1-0 defeat to Brazilian side Santos when playing for Palmeiras way back on October 29, 2016.

And with City flying in all competitions, there is no sign of his run ending any time soon.

Jesus said: Yes, Im very happy to have gone all that time without losing a game but its not only me. Its thanks to the teams I have played in and the team-mates I have played with.

Its good to reach that milestone of a whole year but I must keep working hard in the training sessions and keep performing well in the games.

We know how important it is that we dont lose focus on everything we are trying to achieve. We want to keep the momentum going, keep winning games and keep fighting for trophies at the end of the season.


MANG DOWN Eliaquim Mangala admits he may leave Man City


Jesus run already includes one trophy. He did not lose in his final five games for Palmeiras in late 2016 as he led them to the Brazilian title.

He then joined City at the start of 2017 and his record with Pep Guardiolas team is 29 games unbeaten across the second half of last season and the first part of this, in which City have yet to lose in their first 19 games.

The amazing record stretches back to Jesus' days at Palmeiras

His 33-game streak in which he has hit 20 goals has seen the youngster give Guardiola a big decision over who should be his starting forward. Jesus, 20, has also been a key part in Brazils march to the World Cup finals.

Where it will end is anyones guess as City sweep all before them perhaps the congested fixture list around Christmas could be the killer when wins need to be ground out?

But City showed another side of their game by winning ugly against Feyenoord in midweek.

And Jesus reckons this will be crucial in their push for the Premier League.

He said: We know there might be games when we are going to win without playing that well.

Some games we will deserve to win by playing good football. In others well have to show character and win no matter how.

Jesus hopes to continue firing in the goals as City lead the charge for the title

Jesus has also warned City strike rival Sergio Aguero that his long-term aim is to break the Argentinians club-record goal tally, which currently stands at 179.

Guardiola has said he is unlikely to pick both in the same team for the foreseeable future. That means the deadly duo must battle it out for one spot in the starting line-up for the next few months.

But Jesus who has 17 goals in just 28 appearances for City insists it is a friendly rivalry.

He said: Sergio has broken an amazing record for City. I support him totally but I hope I can beat his record as soon as possible!

Yet Jesus is thankful that Aguero helped him settle in Manchester.

He added: I get on with Sergio very well, hes an amazing guy. All of us know what type of player he is but he is also a fantastic person.

When you have a good relationship off the pitch its easier to bring it on to it. Thats what we have. We help each other and we both fight for the shirt of the club and pull together.

And that can only help Jesus lengthen his invincible run.

64. Ewan McGregor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead cant keep their hands off each other as they enjoy a romantic dinner in LA02:37[−]

EWAN McGregor and new girlfriend Mary Elizabeth Winstead lavish affection on each other as they enjoy a romantic dinner – after the actor moved out of his marital home.

Scottish McGregor, 46, and American Winstead, 32, wiped tears from each other’s faces and tenderly caressed each other at the New York venue, which they arrived at and left separately.

After gazing into each other’s eyes and making jokes to lighten the mood, the couple enjoyed a meal by the light of candles in a private area of the venue.

It’s their latest affectionate display following the revelation that Ewan will now wave goodbye to his family life and begin a fully-fledged relationship with the actress, 14 years his junior.

Last Friday Ewan even moved out of the family home, leaving estranged wife of 22 years Eve Mavrakis, 51, for good after their split in May.

And this week Mary’s former fiance, who she also broke up with in May, was revealed to have been targeted by trolls who posted threats to McGregor on social media after hacking his account.

Mary and Ewan met while working together on US show Fargo and shared intimate scenes, including a shared bath.

During that time, Ewan invited Mary to his family home to meet his wife, which only increased her fury when she found out about the romance.

This month, pictures emerged of them hugging weeks before their secret relationship was exposedand they show just how intimate that romance was.

They were first spotted kissing in mid-October and by the end of the month, Ewan’s daughter Clara had cropped him out of a social media snap featuring her parents.

Goff Photos

By November 11, Ewan and Mary had “gone public” with their relationship by walking hand-in-hand in LA.

Meanwhile the only comment Eve has made publicly on her husband’s behaviour is an Instagram comment, which merely reads: “What can I do?”

Across the summer, Eve is thought to have made attempts to mend her marriage to Ewan.

But by October the Star Wars actor had made his decision to leave her and begin a new life.

Ewan and Elizabeth both split from their other halves in May 2017

But Mary had been single since May after announcing her split from fiance Riley Stearns on her Instagram account, in a post which has since been deleted.

She wrote: “Weve decided to move on from our marriage, but we will stay best friends and collaborators for all our days.

“We are still ride or die, just in a different way now. I love you always, Riley.”

The actors appeared together in Fargo
Ewan has split from his wife of almost 23 years

Trolls who recently accessed Riley’s account posted a fake response to the news Mary and Ewan for an item.

They wrote: “Call me a cuck, will ya? Laugh at me, will ya?

“F*** the woman of my dreams behind my back, will ya? @mewins @mscregor_ewan You’re F***ING dead…”

TV writer Stearns, 31, subsequently came out to confirm he had been hacked and had not issued a threat to McGregor.

And Ronaldo treated himself to the menacing Panther Black Rs7 Sportback edition after breaking his own Champions League record.

The Portuguese ace scored twice in the 6-0 thrashing of Apoel on Tuesday taking his total tally to 18 in this calendar year – more than any other player.

And his flashy car would cost the average buyer a whopping ?150,000.

But that wasn’t even the most expensive car to be dished out with Sergio Ramos taking that honour.

The Spanish centre back picked the R8 Spyder complete with a soft top roof and black alloy wheels – worth just over ?200,000.

At the other end of the spectrum it was youngster Marcos Asensio who picked the cheapest… a Glacier White S5 Coupe worth ?49,000.

Manager Zinedine Zidane picked a model very similar to Ronaldo’s with a Daytona Gray RS6 Avant Performance.

By the the most popular car proved to be the luxury SUV with 14 players collecting the keys.

The Real Madrid players were then treated to Audi’s Formula E simulator with Dani Carvajal coming out on top.

In August fellow European giants Bayern Munich had Audi supercars delivered for the 15th year in a row.

The German champions have been granted new motors from the car manufacturers of the same country every year since 2002.

66. Drivers showered with 25 COWS after cattle truck crash on overpass in Utah02:28[−]

DRIVERS experienced the shock of their lives in Utah this morning as cows “fell out of the sky” and hit their cars.

Some commuters were injured when approximately 25 cattle fell from a truck transporting them along the freeway above in Riverdale.

The lorry was speeding in the 45mph zone when it crashed just after noon yesterday, tipping over and sending its live cargo onto the road below.

It’s not known how many cows died, although footage from the scene shows several splayed in pools of blood on the road.

Others were apparently unharmed by their plunge, and were freely roaming the grass by the roadside.

The freeway was closed while the cattle and the truck were cleared, causing traffic tailbacks for five miles.

One driver Kerri Kofoed told local news station KSL of the moment the cows showered down, smacking into her car and injuring her wrist and shoulder.

Pointing at pictures of the damage to her vehicle, she said: “A cow fell out of the sky and hit my car.

“He fell and hit me right here, smacked my windshield and bounced off. I did what anybody would do, slammed on my breaks.

Her car crashed into the median wall of the bridge, driving over other fallen cattle before coming to a stop.

She said: “I saw them in my mirrors as my airbags deployed, all slammed down behind and around.

“I’m guessing he was one of the last ones that fell, and I think he landed on top of the others and he started wandering.”

The truck’s driver was unharmed in the crash, but charged over his speeding by officers at the scene.

A similar incident happened on the same freeway just last year, when 70 of a truck’s 80 cows died after falling to the road below.

Authorities said that crash was also due to speeding.

Some of the cattle survived and were seen roaming the grass by the roadside
