crime: May 2012 Archives

275x250.jpg When police in West Yorkshire were called out to reports of a man covered in blood staggering close to a canal, they didn't know what to expect.

But when they got to the scene in Wakefield, they couldn't believe their eyes … because the 'injured' man was actually an actor filming a zombie movie.

Cops had initially been dispatched when a member of the public had spotted the zombie at around 7.45pm in the evening. An ambulance was also sent out.

But the soon discovered what was really happening and tweeted: "PC Saxon and PC Winfield have attended the canal between Stanley Ferry and Eastmoor in company with ambulance to reports of a male covered in blood staggering around.

"Once they arrived they located a group of film makers in the last day of filming a Zombie movie with some very realistic makeup on show."


A pair of Welsh tourists who stole a penguin after breaking into an Australian theme park -- where they also swam with dolphins -- have been fined $1,000 (£637).

The golden retriever has become something of a minor celebrity in China after standing guard when his owner goes to run errands -- and then jumping on the back when it's time to go.

More than 100,000 people have viewed a video of the dog (known locally as Bike Hugging Dog) sitting upright on his hind legs and holding the bike. That's better than any bike lock we've ever seen.
