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.

Brewery creates the world’s strongest beer

Armageddon /Ext

A Scottish brewery claims to have created the world’s strongest beer – a 65% alcohol drink called Armageddon.

And it is proving so popular that there is a two-week wait for delivery – despite the £40 price tag for a single 330ml bottle.

Created by Scottish firm Brewmeister, the beer is made from crystal malt, wheat and flaked oats and is freeze fermented to bring it to the required ABV.

A pint of the beer contains an alarming 37 units of alcohol – twice the recommended weekly intake for a man.

Brewmeister says the beer should be ‘consumed like a fine whisky’.

A spokesman said: “Despite being 65%, the beer has a lot of flavour – malty, hoppy, slightly sweet and lots of yeast still in the beer.

“Be careful though, smelling it is probably enough to put you over the limit!”

Brewery founder Lewis Shand told Standard Media: “The phrase “delivers a punch” doesn’t quite cut it – delivers a supersonic charged explosion is probably more appropriate.”

Shocking pants could prevent sores

Electric pants /Rex

Underwear which jolts the buttocks with electricity could be used to prevent pressure sores.

Canadian academics said that in a short trial on 37 people, the shocks mimicked fidgeting and prevented sores forming.

Doctors at the University of Calgary tested underwear which placed two pads of electrodes on each cheek.

Patients who were unable to move because of a spinal cord injury were zapped with 10 seconds of stimulation every 10 minutes for 12 hours a day.

The findings, presented at the Neuroscience 2012 conference, showed that none of the 37 patients developed a sore during the month long trial.

Robyn Rogers, a research nurse at the university, said: “Pressure ulcers can be terribly debilitating.

“Their incidence has not changed since the 1940s, indicating that the current methods of prevention simply are not working.

“Our hope is that this innovative, clinically friendly system will eventually make a difference in the lives of millions of people.”

Sores form when people are stuck in one position for too long, which compresses the skin and cuts off the blood supply.

They are a common problem in hospitals around the world and cost the NHS up to £2bn a year, according to the Royal College of Nursing.

Website offers women ‘celebrity sperm’

A controversial website is to offer “celebrity sperm” for £15,000 to fame-obsessed women desperate for a star child.

The Fame Daddy site, which promises “top quality celebrity surrogate fathers” including footballers, actors and rock stars, is to launch next year

It claims it will have 40 different donors for women to choose from, including a former professional footballer, an actor, a genius, a rock star and an aristocrat.

Donors will remain anonymous – but would-be mums will be able to identify their area of achievement and other personal attributes

Fees start at £15k but the website claims the investment will provide them with “a proven winner” who will get “a head start in life”.

Fame Daddy boss Dan Richards admitted that the clinic has no real sperm samples “as of yet”.

However he said that the site’s register of possible donors already includes a retired ATP tennis pro, retired English cricketers and a multi-platinum recording artists.

Mr Richards said: “Our vision is to help women give their children the very best chance in life.

“To be able to harvest potential from the global gene pool, rather than from the more limited selection of the men she comes into direct contact with, is a major evolutionary leap for women.

“Whether it is talent on the stage or pitch, having a world-beating voice, or just being very beautiful, Fame Daddy will have the perfect celebrity surrogate daddy.”
