  1. Bird Photography in Wales

    Great pics Rob - are the birds captive animals?
  2. Just been speaking to a relative who lives in Morgan St. Apparently he was alleged to have stolen a mini-digger a while ago and flogged it to gyppos. Unfortunately, said digger had a tracker and the police repossessed it and he ended up in Walton for a spell. While he was in nick, his girlfriend flogged his possessions to pay the gyppos some of the cash which they had paid for the digger. Remember a while back when someone was asking about moving to Parr, I told the story of how someone had rolled up at a house in Morgan St and proceeded to smash the window in the door. Turns out that the house was that of Mr Griffiths and the window smasher was a gyppo coming for his money. Apparently, he's normally a decent chap but it seems he was upset with GF for flogging his stuff. The rumour in the street is that the gyppos are still after him and he felt he'd be safer back inside so went on the rampage to deliberately get arrested.

  9. RIP Len 'Banana' Saunders

    It's called 'joint enterprise' when a number of people are present at the time of the crime's commission - even though the crime is carried out by a single member of that group.

    No problem here in brum - you only have to put any scrap on the driveway and it's gone in no time at all. Three or four vans touring the area every day.

  14. FA to intro dive and fake injury panel aug 2017

    Yes, but not all of the ball - just a bit needs to overhang the white quadrant line and it's legal - or are all the refs in all the football leagues in the world misinterpreting the rule?
