When a pregnant Mary Cooke of Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, rang 999 to report a near hit and run the last thing she expected was to be reported to social services over a half decorated house. Hmm, behind her back the police contacted social workers and reported her as a potentially unfit mother because some of the walls and floors in her rented apartment had been stripped. Despite Mrs Cooke telling the policewoman they were just finishing off a project before moving to a bigger house prior to the baby being born, she was still dobbed in to Staffordshire council’s children services.

Actor Davis Prowse, who played the original Darth Vader in the Star Wars, was left a little speechless when police raided a Staffordshire film set believing it to be a porn movie shoot. Unfortunately for the bunch of keen policemen, they walked in on a group of bewildered actors filming a scene from ‘The Kindness of Strangers’, an action thriller. Evidently nosey neighbors had contacted police when they saw lights, cameras and action. Obi-Wan has taught you nothing!
Psst This is just some random Darth Vader clip, not porn Jammers!
Management at the Alton Towers Resort in Staffordshire have announced that men will no longer be allowed to wear speedos, budgie-smugglers, banana hammocks or packed lunches around the popular water park any more. Sorry, nope, no way, never. Hmm, seems skimpy, tight men’s attire are no longer deemed “cool” for a family venue. AND get this…“We are also looking into offering complimentary male waxing, which will preserve the dignity of all our guests.” Hmm, seems unsightly men’s hair can be offensive to the guests as well, so that too will have to be either covered up or waxed off. I guess it’s back to the Mediterranean then!
