275x250.jpg Children out trick-or-treating in Manchester got more than a few sweets on Halloween, some were given packets of cocaine!

Greater Manchester Police say they were called to reports of trick-or-treaters in Royton being given packets of white powder amongst their sweets.

It was soon confirmed that the snap bags contained cocaine, not a sweet, and a 33-year-old man from Royton was charged with possession of class A drugs

Superintendent Catherine Hankinson said: “The parents and police acted quickly when this report was made, in the interests of public safety."


With Halloween fast approaching there are going to be plenty of people claiming to have a great Halloween scare trick… they wont be as good as magician Rich Ferguson.


Ferguson has scored an internet hit with a video of him performing a head drop trick on the streets of his home town San Luis Obispo.

275x250.jpg Because every man wishes he was James Bond, a paintball website is allowing them to run around dressed as their hero while shooting down infamous Bond villains… but using a paintball gun rather than a Walther PPK.

The Skyfall Paintball package, which has been launched to celebrate the new 007 movie, gives paintball players the opportunity to re-enact some of the cult hero’s most iconic scenes, all while wearing a tuxedo.

Villains will be played by the site’s staff and participants are being warned to keep tuxedo spending to a minimum as it's unlikely they'll be able to get the paint out of the clothes should they get shot.

However, paintball spies won't look quite as smooth as Daniel Craig, due to safety regulations they will still have to wear unstylish safety goggles.

275x250.jpg A mobile phone insurance website has uncovered its top 10 weirdest insurance claims of the past 12 months… including a farmer whose mobile ended up inside a cow.

Whilst many people break their phones by dropping the handset and smashing the screen, data released by MobileInsurance.co.uk has revealed the top ten weirdest mobile insurance claims.
 
1. A farmer in Devon claimed his phone had disappeared inside the back end of one of his cows when he’d been using the torch on his iPhone whilst assisting the cow during calving. The phone later made an appearance, but was damaged.

2. A lady in her early 40s from Nottingham claimed that she’d baked her Nokia 6303i into a Victoria Sponge she’d been making for her daughter’s birthday. It didn’t endure the heat of gas mark 5.


A family in Albuquerque have been left puzzled after a stranger repeatedly climbed onto their porch in the early morning … to rearrange their patio furniture.


CCTV footage shows the unknown woman walking past the home, noticing that the family have rejected her new layout and put the furniture back, and then doing it again.

The Dentandts from New Mexico said: "It's been funny but it's kind of creepy to know that someone is coming on our property."

275x250.jpg Architects have created an interesting design for a possible new bridge in Paris … it consists of three inflatable doughnut trampolines.

The bizarre design was created as a response to an ideas competition for a new bridge in Pari - which will add to the 37 bridges which already cross the Seine.

A spokesperson for design firm Atelier Zündel Cristea said: "It appears to us that Paris has the bridges and passages necessary for the flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic across its waterways.

"Our intention is to invite its visitors and inhabitants to engage on a newer and more playful path across this same water. We propose, now, a distinctive urban feature: an inflatable bridge equipped with giant trampolines, dedicated to the joyful release from gravity as one bounces above the river.


In a bid to promote their new monitors, LG decided to scare office workers by fitting the displays to the floor of an elevator and making it look like it was collapsing.

A video which has gone viral online shows the response of unwitting elevator-travelers as the panels of the floor beneath their feet, appear to fall down the lift shaft.

As you would imagine there is much gasping, jumping and looks of horror before people realise they are not really going to die.

Or that's what the video claims to show, but many people claim the video is faked and the people in the lift are actors - pointing to reflected green-screens and other apparent filming blunders.

Ceefax service to close after 38 years

275x250.jpg Ceefax, the BBC's teletext service, has closed after bringing news-fans pixelated headlines for 38 years.

The world's first teletext service, Ceefax was initially seen as a way of providing subtitles for the deaf, but was soon used to provide news, sport, weather and quizzes.

The demise has come about because of the digital switchover. Over the past couple of years Ceefax has disappeared from most UK homes and now viewers in Northern Ireland will lose their analogue signal, and Ceefax with it.

No amount of pushing the red button will be the same as dialing in the number for the page of news you wanted.


Unsuspecting rail travelers at Antwerp Central station in Belgium were recently challenged to spend a minute as James Bond in a bid to win exclusive tickets for the movie SKYFALL.


After using a Coke Zero machine in the station, travelers were asked via a touchscreen if they wanted to win exclusive tickets to SKYFALL.

Once they had entered their name they were then told they had 70 seconds to get to platform 6. It shouldn't have been too difficult, but organisers had made it harder by introducing obstacles which needed navigating.

As the Bond theme was plays the would-be Bonds had to make their way past men carrying sheets of glass, fruit-stalls falling over, joggers, dogs, and an attractive woman who wanted to stop them

275x250.jpg A study by leading British body language expert, Robert Phipps has revealed the position we sleep in reflects our mood, stress level and even personality.

The research, which was carried out for budget hotel chain Premier Inn, found the most common way of sleeping, The Foetal position (58%), reflects subconsciously trying to de-stress in our sleep.
 
The Log, the second most common sleeping position (28%) sees people sleep with their arms and legs by their side, with the report stating that such a rigid position can lead to individuals being very stubborn and set in their ways.
 
Despite, over half of the nation sleeping in a way that shows they are stressed, a quarter say they sleep on their side with their arms stretched out, dubbed The Yearner, meaning they're constantly on the hunt for new challenges to try and reach for their dreams.
 
Not only are our sleeping positions revealing we are stressed, but also that we are anxious and feeling out of control, with 17% saying they sleep on their front with their arms above their head in The Freefaller.
