Police say they arrested a man after he ordered his pet to attack two officers. Luckily for them, 9-foot-long pythons are not very obedient.

Bridgeport Police Lt. James Viadero says 21-year-old Victor Rodriguez was charged with threatening police and disorderly conduct after Monday’s incident.

Attn. Manchester: Big Brother has his eye on you. And how.

Every car coming into Manchester is being snapped by a new network of police spy cameras. Each day, 600,000 motorists’ journeys are being captured, and the data will be stored for five years. The cameras have been installed on the 12 major routes into the city, making it virtually impossible to travel into the middle of Manchester and not have your number plate recorded.

Manchester is the first city outside London to use Automatic Number Plate Recognition cameras in this way.

Police will store details of the licence plate, colour of car and a time stamp on a central computer. They say it will help combat terrorism, crime and vehicle theft.
