  • Terrifying 'knocker' SCAM: Police issue warning as door-step gangs target YOU in your home | UK | News

    GETTY Police forces across the country have been issuing alerts after a wave of crimes involving gangs of men who claim to be selling cleaning products but actually are scoping out the victims house in preparation for a burglary at a later date.  The scam often involves sellers - also known as Nottingham Knockers - who claim to be a reformed convict trying to make a new life for themselves or to be deaf or dumb and in need of cash to pay for their carer.  The crooks go between houses appearing to offer a range of cleaning products but are secretly checking how much cash may be in the house, whether the home is occupied or empty at certain times, how valuable the belongings are and how well protected

  • Roger Moore’s son is a dead ringer for his father in Bond costume

    It seems the next generation of the Moore family has continued to keep the British end up, so to speak. The Daily Mail shared an image of Geoffrey Moore, 50-year old son of the third 007 actor Roger, dressed as his father for a party in Mayfair this week. Geoffrey Moore was 7 years old when his father inherited the mantle of 007 with 1973’s ‘Live and Let Die,’ going on to be the most prolific Bond actor with seven films in the role before retiring in 1985 (by which time, most would agree the then 57-year old actor was far too old for the part).

  • Commuters accused of not moving from disabled woman's seat say they did nothing wrong

    Cat Lee/Guzelian Cat Lee said she found the men sitting in the seats she had booked for the 6.03pm train on Tuesday evening from London's King's Cross to Skipton in North Yorkshire.  The 43-year-old claimed that the men refused to move from her seats even when she explained she was disabled.

  • Premier League Round-Up: Theo Walcott marks Arsene Wenger with a familiar improvement

    Manchester United’s second against Leicester City, scored by Juan Mata, won’t do anything to cheer up Wayne Rooney. The goal is a problem for Rooney in several ways. It involved Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Mata, all of whom could argue that they are now superior in the various positions Rooney has been tried in of late.

  • EastEnders: Roxy and Ronnie Mitchell to be killed off

    Love them or hate them, you can’t deny that Ronnie and Roxy Mitchell leaving EastEnders is going to be the end of an era for the BBC One soap, especially now that we have learned that it’s going to be a permanent departure. Actresses Rita Simons (Roxy) and Sam Womack (Ronnie) are said to be upset by the news that the Mitchell sisters are being bumped off as they’d hoped to have the option to return at some stage in the future. The exit comes under new producer Sean O’Connor’s ruling, with Sean already killing off much-loved character Paul Coker as well as announcing the departures of other favourites, including Babe Carter, Masood Ahmed, Lee Carter, Claudette Hubbard, Buster, Briggs, Pam and Les Coker and Kyle Slater.

  • When temporary is permanent - EU court verdict fans calls for Spanish jobs overhaul

    By Sarah White MADRID (Reuters) - An EU court ruling defending the right of temporary workers in Spain to receive severance pay is fuelling calls from Spanish unions and politicians for one of Europe's most uneven labour markets to be fixed. Spain has the European Union's second-highest unemployment rate after Greece and its labour market is more reliant on temporary contracts than any other in the bloc bar Poland. The European Court of Justice blew open the issue after it argued in a Sept. 14 ruling that a Spanish woman who was employed as a temporary substitute for a civil servant over seven years was entitled to the same severance pay as a permanent employee when she was let go.
