Female hooligan ‘hid flare inside body’

Police in Russia are searching for a female football hooligan who they say injured a goalkeeper with a firecracker she had hidden inside her vagina.

Dynamo Moscow goalkeeper Anton Shunin was taken to hospital to be treated for damage to his eyes after the firework exploded in his face.

Police say video footage shows it was thrown by a female Zenit St Petersburg fan – and that they have evidence how she smuggled it into the ground.

A police source told journalists that female fans commonly used contraceptives to carry flares into the stands inside their bodies.

­”During the inspection of the stadium after Dynamo’s match against Zenit…, the police found dozens of condoms in the ladies’ room,” the source said.

Russian football officials are to meet this week to discuss the incident and could award a technical victory to Dynamo.

Council plan to DNA dog poo

A Kent parish council wants to use DNA testing on dog waste in a bid to catch owners who allow pets to soil the pavement.

Councillors sitting on Sundridge with Ide Hill Parish Council discussed the plans after hearing a string of complaints from villagers.

People in the two villages, near Sevenoaks, complained inconsiderate pet owners were “ruining the area”.

The council says it is now considering collecting DNA from waste and using it to prosecute anti-social owners.

Although never before used in the UK, DNA testing on dog mess has been used in Germany and the US.

Owners must give consent for a DNA sample to be taken from their pet, but once they are on the database their behaviour can be logged for their entire lifetime.

According to the minutes of the meeting, the council agreed to take a tougher stance on fining offending dog owners and to make sure the dog warden visited the area regularly.

The minutes added: “If this still remains a problem it is possible to take DNA from the poo and trace it back to the dog and its owner.”

Anna West, 36, of Sundridge, who walks her dog Harvey in the area, said: “It just seems bizarre to me. Crazy. It’s Big Brother gone mad, really.”

Drunk man tried to walk down up escalator

A fellow commuter captured the businessman, wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase, attempting to ride down to the tube on a escalator going upwards at Tottenham Court Road

A drunk Japanese businessman was caught on camera trying to walk down the escalator the wrong way on the London Underground.

The man, wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase, tried to make his way down the up escalator at Tottenham Court Road tube station, reports The Sun.

Sam Napper, 27, from London, who filmed the incident, said: “We quite literally bumped into this chap on the escalators between the Northern and Central Lines at Tottenham Court Road station

“One by one, concerned commuters tried to steer him in the right direction, to no avail. Our bespectacled hero just kept walking.

“Eventually, we let the poor sod out of his hamster wheel-like hell and pushed the emergency stop button.

“After pausing for a few seconds, he turned around and walked out, as if nothing ever happened, saying nothing, leaving us stunned.”

Bakery workers strip for charity

Charity calendar /Greggs

Women staff at a branch of bakers Greggs have stripped off for charity, covering their modesty with buns and biscuits.

They bared nearly all for a charity calendar, now on sale at every one of the 1,650 Greggs shops across the UK.

Priced at £5 it has reportedly been flying off the shelves and is on course to raise more than £100,000 for the BBC Children in Need appeal.

The mouth-watering calendar was the idea of Kelly Gilmour, 32, an assistant ­manageress at the shop in Gateshead, Tyneside, where all the women work.

Kelly, who appears as Miss June with a pile of doughnuts and a can of cream, said: “Customers may look at their Belgian buns in a different way now.

“We were really nervous about ­doing the pictures but a couple of glasses of wine helped. Then it was good fun.”

Covered in Belgian buns as Miss March, manager Nicola Dickenson, 35, added: “We can’t believe it. We’re not exactly supermodels.”

Welcome to the Hop On Inn!

Pub landlord Colin Flitter is turning heads with his double-decker bus - which he's transformed into a mobile English inn

Pub landlord Colin Flitter is turning heads with his double-decker bus – which he’s transformed into a mobile English inn.

The 41-year-old bought the classic 1966 red Routemaster from eBay for 18,500 and spent 14,000 pounds turning it into the aptly named Hop On Inn.

The lower deck has been converted into a fully functional bar – complete with beer pumps.

Toilet floor collapse kills four

FOUR people have been killed when the floor of a public toilet in southern Kyrgyzstan caved in.

The ministry for emergency situations had earlier reported that 15 people were injured in the accident on Saturday at a public toilet located in a market.

But four bodies were found in the rubble early on Sunday.

The ministry said Deputy Prime Minister Taiyrbek Sarpashev and the Minister for Emergency Situations Kubatbek Boronov have “ordered checks to be carried out on all public toilets” after visiting the accident site.

Kyrgyz rescuers found four bodies in the rubble of a collapsed public toilet at one of the country’s biggest markets, a spokesman for the republic’s emergencies service said on Sunday.

“Four bodies were found – three women and a man,” emergencies ministry spokesman Abdysharip Bekelov said.

The incident took place on Saturday afternoon at a crowded market in southern Kyrgyzstan.

The reason for the collapse of the concrete toilet floor and the exact causes of death remain unclear.
