“Stroke restores sight”… and removes French

Glasses

A grandfather has described how a massive stroke “miraculously” cured his failing sight, but cost him his ability to speak French.

Malcolm Darby, 70, of Oakham, Rutland, had worn glasses since measles damaged his sight at the age of two. But after waking from surgery to remove a blood clot following a stroke last year, he said he found he had near-perfect vision.

Experts say the side-effects of the stroke are “unusual”.

No more monkeying around

Police angered onlookers in Perth, Australia, when they arrested a monkey that was entertaining a small crowd with a dancing act and posing for photographs.

The monkey had declined to give his name when questioned by police, so they took him away. At the police station, the monkey was identified as a young man, Brenton Green, dressed in a realistic monkey suit.

Police had earlier received complaints that the monkey had been harassing passersby and knocked a hamburger out of a man’s hand.
