Thieves steal church…not from the church. The church itself.

A church has vanished from the Russian village where it stood for almost 200 years.

The Church of Christ’s Resurrection, in the central Russian village of Komarovo, was built in 1809 but in early October someone reportedly took it away brick by brick.

Father Vitaly a spokesman for the local Russian Orthodox Church, said: “We have sent a letter to local prosecutors. Who exactly did this, the investigation will show.”

The church was in an isolated area only occasionally visited by clergymen, so the disappearance was not immediately noticed, reports the Daily Telegraph.

“He flies through the air with the greatest of ease…”

A German schoolboy was blown out of his toilet and through a window when the lavatory exploded into a fireball after he sparked a lighter just moments after spraying the room with air freshener.

The toilet turned into an orange fireball when Dennis Bueller, 13, began playing with a lighter after he sprayed the downstairs WC in his home.

‘I sprayed the toilet because it smelled,’ said Dennis. ‘ Then I began fiddling with a lighter my dad left in there and suddenly there was this big orange whoosh of flame. I woke up outside with my clothes burned off me and smelling like a barbecue.’
