  • 'Ghost Of Woman Holding A Baby' Photographed In Empty House Window

    The house in question – in the historic Shropshire town of Wem - is uninhabited and surrounded with scaffolding – raising the question as to just whom or what could be lurking. Natasha Oliver posted the image to Facebook, explaining it dates back five years and was taken after a World Cup game. Wem has a rich history of spooky sightings – most notably when the image of a young girl was captured amid the flames as Wem Town Hall burned to the ground. The figure – dubbed the Wem Ghost – sparked international headlines and rumours flew that the apparition was 14-year-old Jane Churm, who accidentally started the great fire of Wem in 1677.

  • Bin Laden Plane Crash 'Doesn't Make Sense'

    A plane crash that killed three members of the bin Laden family "doesn't make sense", according to a pilot who regularly flies into Blackbushe Airport. Speaking to Sky News, Simon Moores explained how the Phenom 300 jet, which came down over a car auction site in Hampshire on Friday, "has every conceivable state-of-the-art safety function you can possibly imagine". He explained how the plane takes approximately 750m to 800m to land - but as Blackbushe's runway is 1,300m, there should have been no reason for the aircraft to overshoot as it arrived from Milan's Malpensa Airport.

  • Premier League - Manchester United transfer news: Van Gaal ready to sell De Gea to Real Madrid

    Spanish publication AS are reporting that the goalkeeper looked shaky and disinterested during United's 2-0 preseason defeat to PSG, prompting van Gaal to make up his mind that the former Atletico Madrid player needs to be sold. Real have tracked De Gea all summer long and this apparent change in stance from van Gaal should prompt them to renew their attempts to bring him to La Liga. Whether Van Gaal's mind has been made up by one pre-season showing isn't clear, but if De Gea's head has been turned by Real Madrid's interest then it would make sense for the club cash in.
