  • Does FBI memo prove aliens DID crash near Roswell and THREE UFOs and were covered up?

    An FBI memo that has come under scrutiny following freedom of information requests even suggests each "saucer" contained three bodies of three-foot tall aliens in the legendary "alien" incident. The Roswell incident, in July 1947, went down in UFO folklore after the US Air Force announced it had found the remains of what was suspected of being a crashed flying saucer in the New Mexico desert near the town. The FBI memo now in the spotlight, dated from 1950 - three years after the Roswell incident - said each of three "saucers" contained three bodies of three-foot tall humanoid occupants, making nine aliens in total. Museum workers stumbled across the document as as they were preparing to open the Hakui Centre for UFO Research in the coastal city of Hakui, 310 miles west of Tokyo, Japan, back in 1994. q
  • Jilted Lover Suffers Burns After Revenge Acid Attack Goes Badly Wrong

Leng, who had recently broke up with his girlfriend, crashed the bike seconds after the attack, which caused the former couple to suffer more injuries as a result.

  • 'Barclays would only give me £20 notes when I closed my account'

    Nearly four months ago I visited a Barclays branch to withdraw £130. I couldn’t remember my PIN so I went to the desk. The staff there couldn’t help me because I had no ID. I decided that I would close the account and withdraw my savings of £5,000. I returned with a friend with ID, PIN etc. The desk hand took my bank card and handed me a transaction receipt. It informed me that the bank had no method of giving the cash other than in £20 notes. She proceeded to count out the money. I complained to her about the fact it didn’t even have £50s. I said I was anxious about carrying cash around with me. She became rude and I asked to see the manager. DB, London The “desk hand”, as you describe her, q

  • Calais gripped by chaos as FIVE HUNDRED migrants make two violent bids to reach Britain

    REUTERS•GETTY More than 200 migrants broke into the Channel Tunnel shortly after midnight, more than half of whom made it a THIRD OF THE WAY to Britain before finally being intercepted by overwhelmed French police.  The huge crowd smashed down border fences paid for by Britain and completely overran security staff as part of a "planned invasion" of the Eurotunnel terminal at Coquelles.  Police eventually caught up with the group almost 10 miles into the tunnel, but things turned violent when they moved in to disperse the migrants.  Officers were forced to make 23 arrests, with six people being injured in the fracas.  In a separate incident a stampede of 300 migrants surged onto the motorway outside q

  • Scientists predict MEGA-TSUNAMI twice the size of Big Ben to wipe out entire CITIES

    GETTY A crew of scientists recently discovered the sudden collapse of a giant volcano 73,000 years ago unleashed a wave nearly 1,000ft in height, the largest ever seen on geological record. Experts have today warned a similar catastrophic mega-tsunami could happen again. The Fogo volcano at Cape Verde, which triggered the unprecedented wave, remains one of the world's largest and most active island volcanoes. The volcano suddenly became active late last year. Seismologists said the eruption in November was one of the strongest ever recorded on the island. Experts fear another powerful eruption could send a devastating mega-tsunami across the Atlantic Ocean. Scientists have recently uncovered q

    Beryl Morris is keen to sell her two-storey, four-bedroom family home in the near future. She and her husband have loved it for the 33 years they’ve lived there – but now it’s too big to manage. Downsizing isn’t an option for the couple, however. Their house, in a small village, is worth £280,000. The cheapest suitable property into which they could downsize, in their area of Cambridgeshire, would cost £350,000. The moving costs would add another £20,000 on top. Like millions of other would-be downsizes, they have become disillusioned by Britain’s dysfunctional housing market. Downsizing has become an option restricted to the very wealthy: those who have spare assets or seriously valuable family q
