Their next party could have been a blast


A Chinese family has discovered it has been living above a stockpile of 38 rusting bombs for the last 20 years.

The family, who live in Malipo town, had long wondered why magnets were so strongly attracted to an area under their hallway, reports the Chuncheng Evening Post.

Wang Hexiong said his father first discovered the phenomenon and declared the area holy as he believed the family’s ancestors lay beneath.

Never too old for a new career — but 6.5 tons of pot?

The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency said it had found 254 sacks of cannabis at the home of Sulaiman Adebayo in Ogun state, north of Lagos.

Spooks in Scotland — take two

Creepy goings-on at a Scottish Castle have taken a new twist with the discovery of a SECOND ghost photo.

Last week a spooky snap taken at the ruined Tantallon on the East Lothian coast was voted the world’s most convincing paranormal snap. It appeared to show a figure clad in Tudor dress and a ruff peering out of a crumbling window.

The photographer who took the picture last May claimed he saw no one there, and tests have ruled out digital tampering.

Experts suggested the image might have been a trick of the light, but sceptic Professor Richard Wiseman admitted he was puzzled.

The second photo was taken by Grace Lamb, from Edinburgh, at the same location 32 years ago. It shows her late husband Hugh and two children Paul and Kelly — and behind them, what looks like a female figure staring out of an opening above the window in the original ghost photo.

Yeah, but can he rescue Jimmy?


Hope, a white German Shepherd, is a dab paw around the garden as he shows off his skills with the Flymo at his home in Sutton Coldfield.

The four-year-old, who was the winner of National Pet Month in April 2008, can also play the piano, claim organisers of a new talent show.
