  1. Attempted murder charge after stabbing at party

    A 17-year-old boy has been charged with attempted murder after another teenager was stabbed outside a party in Wickford on Saturday.

    Essex Police believes the 15-year-old victim was outside the property in Russell Gardens when he was involved in an altercation with a boy on a moped.

    The victim was stabbed in the back and suffered "life-changing injuries".

    The 17-year-old will appear at Basildon Magistrates' Court today.

    There's no real explanation for why this lorry driver didn't see the other one parked up in a lay-by, but at about 04:00 this morning... they didn't.

    The crash happened on the A14 near Alconbury.

    No-one was arrested but one of the drivers received minor injuries, Cambridgeshire Police says.

  3. Oh Lord, it's a mouse!

    Are you taking the "mickey"?

    A rogue Mickey Mouse balloon has been causing great amusement after getting stuck on the ceiling of Peterborough Cathedral yesterday.

    Canon Ian Black tweeted to say: "We seem to have a mouse problem.

    "There is a Mickey Mouse balloon trapped on the nave ceiling."

    While balloons are usually looked after at the cathedral's reception desk until visitors leave, the helium-filled Mickey went a bit rogue and he's the one that got away.

    The ceiling's about 25m (82ft) high, a spokeswoman said.

    "We can't shoot him down as the nave roof is very precious," she said.

    "He'll probably float down at some terribly sacred moment."
