A nurse has been left confused after a strange creature fell from the sky and landed on her patio. Wendy Gray says the animal looks like a snake, with fangs and a beak, and she has put it into a glass - where it keeps moving.

The 10-year-old was on board with his two older siblings near the town of Balabac, which is notorious for confrontations with the massive creatures, when he was yanked into the water.

The city is filled with unique attractions, exciting events, unrivalled musical heritage and famously warm welcomes. As I was set to fly to Prague from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, I decided to see what all the fuss was about in Liverpool and stay over the night before my holiday to do a bit of exploring while I was there.
