A PENSIONER who ploughed her car into a village flower show had a hand-written reminder on how to drive on the dashboard. An armed response unit was scrambled after the OAP ploughed her Toyota RAV4 into the 50ft long marquee sparking fears of a terror attack. Children with ice creams screamed as contestants, marigolds and marrows were sent flying at the annual village show in posh Burnham Market, Norfolk - known as Chelsea-on-sea. When show officials checked the car they were stunned to find a handwritten reminder starting with the instruction: “Key in ignition”. It read: “Key in ignition, foot on brake, start engine, gear lever into D, foot off brake." Flower show secretary Dr Diana Black said: "It was like a terrorist incident. It was absolutely terrible.

THE UK could be getting its very first spaceport within 18 months after a remote boggy stretch of land on the north coast of Scotland was chosen as a suitable site. The goal is to have a launch from the spaceport as early as 2020. Here’s more about the exciting project. Where is the spaceport going to be located and why was it chosen? The A'Mhoine Peninsula in Sutherland has been chosen as the most suitable place from which to launch rockets vertically to put satellites in orbit. The proposed site for the spaceport is on the Melness Crofting Estate, which is a significant distance from densely populated areas. Sutherland is in the Scottish Highlands, bordering Caithness to the east, Ross-shire to the south and the Atlantic Ocean to the north and west.

UK motorists look set to go green in the near future, as 55 per cent plan to swap diesel for a more ‘planet-friendly’ alternative with their next car purchase. A study of 2,000 motorists currently in the market for a new vehicle found 42 per cent are concerned that they may be taxed more in the near future if they decide to buy a vehicle which runs on diesel.

And 53 per cent think diesel vehicles will become less popular over the next two years. Despite concerns about rising diesel tax, three in five drivers have no idea what the changes to the Vehicle Excise Duty are and what they entail. Of those who do understand what the VED is, 76 per cent believe the legislation – which will tax diesel vehicles more heavily from April 2019 – is punishing diesel drivers. A spokesperson for Vantage Leasing, which commissioned the study, said: … [Read more...] about UK motorists going green as more than half will avoid diesel cars with next buy
