  • '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.

  • Snake in the Grass! Huge Everglades Python Shows Invasive Issue

    A giant python — about as long as a shipping container — that was captured in Everglades National Park in Florida earlier this month has now been euthanized, authorities say. The accidental finding of this snake shows how easily even huge pythons can remain hidden in Florida's swampy south, experts say. The creature weighed a whopping 133 lbs. (60 kilograms), and at 18-feet, 3-inches (5.6 meters), was almost as long as the largest python ever captured in the state of Florida, which was 18-feet, 8-inches long (5.7 meters).

    Liverpool don't really need another striker. The signing of Christian Benteke would appear to have boxed off that position, but that doesn't stop the rumour mill. Negredo though would be something of a risk, he turns 30 in three weeks and had a mixed season in England with Man City only two years ago. Bologna’s director of football says Mario Balotelli can be “saved”, but is a distant possibility in terms of a transfer to the club.
