  3. Clown craze 'extremely frightening', police say

    The culprits, who have been reported across England, are said to be following a trend that started in the US.

    Quote Message: We don’t want to be killjoys but some of these incidents have been extremely frightening for those involved. We would ask people to think about the impact of their actions. What to them is a harmless prank, could be an intimidating and threatening experience to others, especially young children and vulnerable people. Also, by taking part in this craze, people could find themselves in a situation which leads to a public order incident. They could be arrested and ultimately end up with a criminal record. from Supt Paul Bartolomeo Hampshire Constabulary

    The worst rate is currently 88 euro cents at Moneycorp at Southampton airport (pictured) and the best is €1.06 from the Change Group at Glasgow Prestwick.

    A schoolgirl accused of attempting to murder her best friend has told a court how famous serial killers had influenced her plan to kill her mother and brother, and to carry out a school shooting.

    Anders Breivik

    The teenager is accused of luring the victim, 15, to a secluded part of the school, in Hampshire, and stabbing her.

    Giving evidence to the jury at Winchester Crown Court, the defendant, who was 14 at the time of the attack, described how she had researched school shootings including the Columbine massacre in the US in 1999, and the 2011 Norway attacks by Anders Breivik (pictured).

    "I wasn't trying to justify what they had done, but looking at why they did it gave me more insight into their whole case," she said.
