The Radfords: Britain’s biggest family celebrates 21st child | The Sun

United Kingdom
SUPERMUM Sue Radford is celebrating the birth of her 21st baby. Sue, 43, welcomed Bonnie Raye into her king-sized clan after a 12-minute labour. She said: “I thought I’d need more than gas and air but there wasn’t any time.” Her other kids were thrilled when she brought 8lb 4oz Bonnie back to the family’s ten-bedroom converted care home in Morecambe, Lancs. Sue said: “They were all fighting over the first cuddle. It’s such a lovely moment when you bring a newborn home and the others are all lined up ready to hold her.” Her baker husband Noel, 47, said: “I don’t think anyone sets out thinking they’ll have 21 children.

Climate activist daubs graffiti on UK government building in London protest | Guardian News

United Kingdom
Environmental protesters have daubed the windows of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy  in London in an attempt to provoke their arrests. One protester climbed above the revolving doors of the department on Victoria Street, Westminster, and wrote 'frack off' in black spray paint. The vandalism came as police started to remove protesters who had superglued themselves to card entry gates inside the staff entrance to the building as part of an anti-fracking protest. The protest is intended to be the first in a series continuing throughout the week and culminating with a mass civil disobedience action on Saturday, which activists are calling 'rebellion day'.

Road rage UK: Tailgating thug whips out a metal club | The Sun

United Kingdom
THIS is the moment a tailgating thug confronts a driver and his pregnant wife with a metal bar in a terrifying road rage attack. The dashcam footage showed the confrontation escalate until the men were grappling on the side of the road and had to be pulled apart by witnesses. One of the drivers involved has since claimed he only acted the way he did to protect his heavily pregnant wife, who was sitting in the car. It has been claimed the situation first began when a Ford Mondeo started to tailgate the couple's car. The driver then appears to try to overtake extremely aggressively - eventually getting in front of the other car before stopping in the middle of the road. The other driver - whose dashcam is filming the confrontation - then gets out of the car and can be seen screaming at ...
