  • Andrew Blades tried to stop motorcyclists riding toward his colleagues and was convicted for dangerous driving

    A special constable who used his patrol car as a barrier to block men on motorbikes who were riding towards him and his colleagues has lost his job as a driving instructor and been left with a criminal record. Rather than be hailed as a hero, Andrew Blades, 38, was supervising two other special constables on an anti-social behaviour patrol in Bury in May last year when, at around 10.00pm, they came across two motorcyclists who were speeding toward him and his colleagues. Mr Blades swung his patrol car across the road to block the bikes’ path to his companion. The bike then skidded into the police car and the rider and his passenger suffered cuts and bruises. An investigation was launched by traffic police and Andrew was hauled to court and convicted of dangerous driving, which ultimately led to him losing his driving instructor job. It has since transpired that one motorcyclist was uninsured and the other was unlicensed. Mr Blades had volunteered with Lancashire constabulary for 6 years and had an 'unblemished' record. A spokesperson for Lancashire Constabulary said:

  • Russia raises spectre of interminable or 'world war' if Syria talks fail

    By John Irish MUNICH (Reuters) - Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev raised the spectre of an interminable or a world war if powers failed to negotiate an end to the conflict in Syria and warned against any ground operations by U.S. and Arab forces. Medvedev, speaking to Germany's Handelsblatt newspaper on the eve of talks between major powers on Syria in Munich, said the United States and Russia must exert pressure on all sides in the conflict to secure a ceasefire. Asked about Saudi Arabia's offer last week to supply ground troops if a U.S.-led operation were mounted against Islamic State, he said: "This is bad as a ground offensive usually turns the war into a permanent one.

  • EU refines UK offer, up to Cameron now to clinch deal

    By Jan Strupczewski, Alastair Macdonald and Gabriela Baczynska BRUSSELS (Reuters) - British and EU negotiators agreed much of a reform package on Thursday to help keep Britain in the European Union, leaving Prime Minister David Cameron to settle tricky final issues, notably on migration, at a summit next week, diplomats said. After talks in Brussels among officials from all 28 member states to review mostly minor amendments to proposals made by European Council President Donald Tusk last week, an EU source reported "good progress" in clarifying technical, legal issues. "But main political issues are still outstanding and they will have to be dealt with by leaders next week," the source added, referring to a summit on Feb. 18-19 where Cameron hopes to clinch a final deal with his European peers on which he can campaign at home to keep Britain in the bloc at a referendum.

  • People are illegally buying these 'thumb monkeys' for $4,500

    The new "It pet" for China's wealthy is a fitting one, considering it's the year of the monkey this Lunar New Year — the pygmy marmoset. Smaller than a hamster, the pygmy marmoset is the world's smallest monkey, with a body size that ranges from 5.5 to 6.3 inches. This miniature primate that hails from the Western Amazonian rainforests weighs no more than 4.9 ounces and can be held onto with a finger, therefore earning its "thumb monkey" nickname. See also: Chinese woman dumps boyfriend after being put off by his family's Chinese New Year meal According to People's Daily Online, the pygmy marmoset is considered an exotic pet in China. It's illegal to sell it, but it is being sold for up to 30,000 yuan ($4,500). The hefty price tag and law certainly isn't stopping China's nouveau riche from owning a "thumb monkey." Image: Weibo A "thumb monkey" owner, identified only as Chen, has even taken to his Weibo account to show off his darling new pet. Image: Weibo In the post where he debuts the primate that he named "Xiao Shen," Chen declared: "Snow skin leopards and red-crowned cranes have nothing on my New Year's gift." According to Chinese law, the sale of exotic animals such as the pygmy marmoset is illegal. The primate is listed on the International Union for Conservation Nature's red list of endangered species.
