A group of witches and wizards based in central England said on Monday they had forced developers to change the name of a new multi-million pound shopping mall because it clashed with their own moniker.

Property firm Hammerson had intended to name the 350 million pound shopping centre it is building in Leicester, “Highcross Quarter”. But that provoked the ire of a local coven of Wiccans, witches and wizards who use the name because it refers to a special date in the pagan calendar. The coven had also set up a number of Web sites “to break through the ignorance and misunderstanding, prejudice and stigma often attached to Wicca, witchcraft and earth oriented belief systems” using the High Cross Quarter name.

The witches said on their Web site that, following a year-long dispute, the developers had now backed down and agreed to call their new project “Highcross Leicester”.

Air Traffic Control: No unusual activity. So, this happens a lot?

Lots More

A crowd of 100 stunned stargazers brought a town centre to a standstill when five mysterious UFOs were spotted hovering in the sky. Drinkers spilled out of pubs, motorists stopped to gawp and camera phones were aimed upwards as the five orbs, in a seeming formation, hovered above Stratford-Upon-Avon for half an hour.

The unidentified flying objects lit up the otherwise clear night sky above Shakespeare’s birthplace in Warwickshire on Saturday.

Although Air Traffic Control reported no unusual activity, some witnesses were convinced they were witnessing an extra-terrestrial spectacle.

Dozy burglar Larry Black dropped a probation office appointment card at the scene of his crime, a judge has been told.Police found his name and address and his fingerprints, said Brian Simpson, prosecuting at Swansea Crown Court.

But before police could find him, he was arrested for an entirely different crime.

Black, 21, of Paviland Place, Portmead, Swansea, admitted burglary, theft, taking a vehicle without permission, possessing a small quantity of heroin and various motoring offences.

……………….

One thing about a crime career — you don’t need a brain.
