James Thomas, 21, from Conwy was intrigued when he came across a painted wooden sign - LLANDUDNO 3995 m - in the middle of a "lunar landscape miles from anywhere" en route to Everest.
Chester City reveal plans for a multi-million pound Deva revamp - BBC Merseyside
Meanwhile, Wrexham FC owner 'washes hands' of supporters' group, says today's Daily Post. But despite the trouble both on and off the pitch, ever upbeat fans like Chids start a thread on the forum of Wrexham fanzine www.red-passion.com under the title I'm a Wrexham Supporter and I'm not Miserable. Best of luck with that looking at Wrexham's recent form!
'The day I nearly drowned' - BBC Memoryshare
Dhughes452 from Saltney recollects:-
"In 1951 when I was seven years old I fell into the river Dee and was saved by the Ferry Man. How it happened I'm not sure. One minute I was sitting on the steps playing and the next minute people were shouting that there was a boy in the water who was drowning! I was in Eccleston Ferry with my Dad and my sister Carole, and we were there because my Dad used to sell Ice cream from a van by the river."
More UFO sightings - BBC Local and Evening Leader
Witness Mark sent us this photo while the Evening Leader use a video he made. Personally, as the lights seem to fade out, it makes me think they could be Chinese lanterns. [see this story from www.ufocasebook.com]
By the way, there have been plenty of UFO sightings recently.
