    More of a bump than a crash.

    Doesn't make any sense does it :laugh:? If your intention is to ram the gates and break into Downing Street, you'd surely use a lot more speed in the run up. If it was a driver losing control and crashing, it would surely be faster and less measured without the slowing down for pedestrians before crashing. You wouldn't have the control to do that. And if your intention is to cause terror and injure or kill people, you obviously wouldn't have slowed for pedestrians on the pavement. Very strange.

    I think it is safe to say that we have all seen bigger car crashes at Downing Street in the last 13 years

    This is quite a mad story. An Indian government official drained a dam so he could retrieve his Samsung Galaxy. They found it but guess what? It didn't work :slap:

    India is one of the world's most water-stressed countries and extreme temperatures have led to severe water scarcity, causing crop losses, forest fires and power cuts.

    Two million litres of water drained from reservoir in search for phone (msn.com)

    I've not felt a few that happened around here - the only one I actually noticed happened late at night and I was actually sat on the loo so there was more 'movement' than anticipated :)

    Was an iPhone.

    Idiot is currently suspended. Hopefully he will be fired. It's one of the less developed states, largely filled with tribals & has issues with water.
    Yet another case of privileged, drunk on power goverment executive. Hopefully gets a jail sentence too.

    Food price cap will not make a difference - retailers


    So the Government wants a price cap on the cost of certain foods. Yes we all moan about the price of this going up and that going up but a retailer is mindful of putting prices up as they know a customer will either not buy it or shop elsewhere.

    Exactly, the supply of food is incredibly competitive here in the UK, which is why we have the cheapest food in Europe. I used to do my weekly shop in Tesco, these days I do 60% of it there and 40% in Aldi.

    They should have drained the North Sea to find Rebekah Vardy's phone.
