Ryan Giggs had "blood around his mouth" after he allegedly headbutted his ex-girlfriend, a court has heard, as the footballer's assault trial was shown video footage of his arrest. The court was also played two 999 calls recorded when officers responded to reports of a "domestic disturbance" at the home of the former Manchester United star in November 2020. Giggs is accused of using controlling and coercive behaviour against his ex-girlfriend Kate Greville over a three-year period, as well as assaulting her and her sister Emma. He denies the charges against him. Day five of the trial as it happened Advertisement In the first call made at 10.05pm on 1 November 2020, Emma Greville can be heard telling the 999 operator: "Please can you come quickly."

Photo-Illustration: Vulture; Photos by Jeff Spicer/Getty Image and Dimitrios Kambouris/Getty Images The ladies in Wet Leg are a shy pair — Rhian Teasdale and Hester Chambers often speak in hushed tones and regularly giggle at each other’s words, almost as if only the two of them are in on the gag. But today, before this evening’s soundcheck at the Louisiana, an independent venue in Bristol, England, both members of the suddenly famous indie-rock duo are extra quiet. Why? They’re about to meet one of their heroes — albeit over Zoom. “Hello!” beams David Byrne in a welcoming tone from his New York apartment, ready to be acquainted with his favorite new band to talk about life and music. Wet Leg regularly cover one of Byrne’s most famous songs in concert, Talking Heads’ “Psycho Killer.” And all three musicians share a knack for infusing their tunes with deft, sly humor. But Byrne and Wet Leg’s paths to global recognition most certainly evolved at a different pace. Whereas Talking … [Read more...] about When Wet Leg Met Wet Leg Superfan David Byrne
The landlord of Britain’s most haunted pub has revealed a chilling experience he witnessed and caught on CCTV, with what appeared to be a ‘ghost’ pushing a pint off a table . Scott Dawson is the manager of Cumbrian pub Ring O’Bells, and since moving into the pub, he admitted there’s always been ‘a creepy feeling’. Joining This Morning hosts Rochelle Humes and Craig Doyles , Scott explained the spooky events that have been going on in his pub.

While Craig wasn’t convinced, Scott explained that two regulars came in and bought two pints, leaving one of them on the table. ‘The glass just literally started moving down the table and fell off,’ he said, adding: ‘Everybody was really surprised and shocked, I checked CCTV and it’s hard to explain.’ ‘There’s always been a bit of a creepy feeling to … [Read more...] about Landlord of Britain’s most haunted pub reveals chilling experience of ‘ghost’ pushing pint off table
THIS BLIND MAN, AN OLD FRIEND OF MY WIFE’S, HE was on his way to spend the night. His wife had died. So he was visiting the dead wife’s relatives in Connecticut. He called my wife from his in-laws’. Arrangements were made. He would come by train, a fivehour trip, and my wife would meet him at the station. She hadn’t seen him since she worked for him one summer in Seattle ten years ago. But she and the blind man had kept in touch. They made tapes and mailed them back and forth. I wasn’t enthusiastic about his visit. He was no one I knew. And his being blind bothered me. My idea of blindness came from the movies. In movies, the blind moved slowly and never laughed. Sometimes they were led by seeing-eye dogs. A blind man in my house was not something I looked forward to. That summer in Seattle she had needed a job. She didn’t have any money. The man she was going to marry at the end of the summer was in officer’s training school.He didn’t have any money,either. But she was in love with … [Read more...] about Cathedral
By Michael Dempsey Published 3 days ago Share close Share page Copy link About sharing It's a fiercely hot afternoon in Milton Keynes and I'm chasing a small orange flag as it waggles just above a line of low garden walls. The flag is attached to a white robot with six wheels and I'm relieved to see that it's slowing down to a halt. Cristiane Bonifacio has just extracted a large chocolate bar from the robot that has rolled up outside her home. Ms Bonifacio is in a hurry and has to dash back indoors for a work Zoom call, but she's got just enough time to express her affection for the robot delivery service that sends these machines scuttling along her local pavements. "I love the robots. Sometimes you find one that's got stuck so you help it and it says 'thank you'." The robot delivery service from Starship Technologies was launched in Milton Keynes four years ago and has been … [Read more...] about Are we falling in love with robots?
