The nuclear retreat, fitted with body bags, gas masks and a red telephone box, was used by Ministry of Defence in Legbourne, Lincolnshire

Cold War bunker in the pretty UK countryside is up for sale for £25,000 and remains in its original condition.

The nuclear retreat, fitted with body bags, gas masks and a red telephone box, was used by Ministry of Defence in Legbourne, Lincolnshire.

Built in 1959, the small vault accommodated three observers in case of a nuclear attack, and was supplied with enough food and water for two weeks.

It is accessed via a 14ft shaft in a remote rural location, approximately four miles from the market town of Louth and around 11 miles as the crow flies from the North Sea coast.

A former gravedigger who has lived alone in a cemetery for 23 years says he never wants to move.

Gulf War veteran Marc Cox, 54, has lived in Witton cemetery, Birmingham, since 1999 and admits he finds comfort in being around the coffins.

Mr Cox said: “People ask me how I can live here – but I always say ‘what do you mean? People are dying to come here.

“I’ve been to war, I’m scared of the living, not the dead”, he told BirminghamLive.

The haunting experience has let him worried on some occasions, especially when it comes to ‘the Grey Girl’ – the ghost of a young girl with long black hair and grey clothes who has allegedly stared at hime through the window.

He said: “I didn’t think anything of her at the time but a few years later I was approached by a group of mourners who I got chatting to. I told them I lived alone and they asked: ‘Who’s that girl we always see in your window?’

Police in Georgia are looking for a man who they say threw a “temper tantrum” in a fast food restaurant’s drive-thru.

The Waynesboro Police Department shared surveillance video of the man, who appears to reach inside the drive-thru window and throw several objects.

“This guy took ‘Have it your way’ too far after he decided his order wasn’t to his liking (it didn’t have anything to do with ice cream machines, I swear) and threw a temper tantrum, among other things, at the drive-thru of one of our local fast food restaurants,” the police department said.

Surveillance video of the man shows him throwing multiple drink containers through the window of the drive-thru.

In the 1980s and 1990s, when Andre the Giant was gaining a global following, his enormous physique drove fans insane.

Most of the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) wrestlers are known for having powerful personalities and enormous physiques, yet there have still been a number of stars that have appeared larger than other wrestlers.

As he gained a global fan following in the 1980s and 1990s, his enormous physique drove followers insane.

Copy cat

In August 2019, Gary Samuel Lambe broke into a commercial property in Toronto. He wasn’t exactly discreet. Midway through the break-and-enter, the 54-year-old stopped to eat some food, leaving scraps behind. Then, he left an even bigger clue: he headed over to the office printer and made a photocopy of his face. Toronto police released a copy—featuring Lambe’s blurry visage and his white, wide-brimmed fedora—to the public, and the fugitive was identified when he was arrested on a separate matter later that month. The bright side: Lambe now has a much clearer portrait—his mugshot. —Erica Lenti
