Stagecoach has apologised after airing a disgruntled customer's X-rated rant. Twitter user Helen tweeted the bus firm to complain about timetables on Wednesday afternoon. The explicit message was then retweeted by the firm to its 12,000 followers. Helen's message read: "Why do you bother to make timetables when your c***y drivers never stick to them??! "Would rather throw my money away than have to use your s****y excuse of a company. "Also don't bother with your fake interested reply cause I know you really don't give 2 f***s!!" Eagle-eyed Twitter users spotted that the account must've retweeted the message in error. One person said: "I wonder if @StagecoachWScot meant to hit reply to this. Screenshotted for hilarity" The coach firm issued an apology a few hours after the incident. It read: "This was indeed a mistake and does not reflect the views of the company. "Please accept our apologies."

‘Rak what? Rak-Su!’ There was no doubt as to who’s name was being chanted as this year’s X Factor Tour steamrollered into Nottingham on Friday night. Another night of showstopping entertainment saw the fabulous four steal the show as thousands of screaming fans packed out the city’s Motorpoint Arena. Rak-Su - Myles, Ashley, Jamal and beat-boxer Mustafa - who’ve already had an iTunes number one hit with Demilo, were simply brilliant after bouncing onto the stage to perform their hits from the show, which included Mamacita and Mona Lisa. After wowing Cowell & Co. with their creative and catchy tunes, they dished out more of the same energy and fun to a hungry crowd who quite simply couldn’t get enough. But it wouldn’t be right not to big up the other acts too, who should all be held in high regard as I believe this X Factor group is the the best in years when it comes to raw talent and verstility. My personal favourite - the brilliant … [Read more...] about REVIEW: X Factor tour steams into Nottingham
A Doncaster movie extra has paid tribute to Star Wars legend Mark Hamill - by constructing a life-size replica of the actor's X-WING. Richard Butler, 65, was so excited Hamill was returning to the sci-fi saga two years ago he built a 21ft-long version of the trademark aircraft in his garden. As the credits began to roll on a new trilogy of films with Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 2015, father-of-four Richard couldn't wait to get started on his new project. It was the first time Hamill, now a 66-year-old ageing actor in the twilight of his career, had again taken on the role as Luke Skywalker. Richard, who built the movie prop by hand using fibreglass, plywood, plastic and metal, thought what better way to pay tribute to the light-sabre-wielding star. The 'battlescorched' X-wing starfighter Red 5 has been fitted with half-a-mile of cables and includes flashing lights, joy sticks and the wings even move up and down. Richard, who has spent £750 on the build so far, said: … [Read more...] about Doncaster man pays tribute to Mark Hamill’s Star Wars return to big screen by building life size X-WING in garden
