THE 14-year-old boy in A&E has clearly been stabbed. There is no doubt about it among the team treating him, but the teenager refuses to tell the truth. With medical staff required to report incidents such as this, young knife crime victims often concoct unconvincing stories. Paediatric consultant Dr John Criddle says: “We have a duty to notify police for serious injuries. That can put young people off talking to a doctor or nurse.

Latest crime figures released yesterday revealed the UK murder rate has hit a ten-year high, with two homicides daily last year and more than 100 stabbings.

Chelsey Fleming, 25, and boyfriend Johnny, dodge cops and security guards every night as they break into supermarket bins to feed eight-month-old Griffin. The couple, from Georgia, US, claim that using food earmarked for landfill has saved them £150 a month in food bills alone.

"Some people act snooty about the way we live, but Johnny and I have a lot to show for it. No one in America should be going hungry with all the food that gets thrown out from big companies and even from our own homesChelsey Fleming "We are homeowners with no debt, and we got here by penny pinching.

By Mike Moffitt, SFGATE Published 10:14 am PDT, Wednesday, September 19, 2018 Now Playing: A dog remained tied a semi-truck, and could’ve ended up on the highway if it wasn’t for a sheriff volunteer. Courtesy: Yavapai County Sheriff's Office Media: Fox 13 Tampa A trucker made a horrific mistake that nearly resulted in tragedy after a fuel stop earlier this month in Yavapai County, Ariz. The man, who was not identified, had pulled out his tractor-trailer and was headed to the interstate, when a volunteer of Yavapai County Sheriff's Office noticed that a small dog was tied to the rear of the trailer. The pooch was desperately running to keep up with the rig. According to a post on the sheriff's office's Facebook page Monday, the Volunteer in Protection (VIP), who also was not identified, was leaving the parking lot on his way to assist a deputy after a quick stop for a drink break. The VIP saw the dog and activated his lights and siren to pull … [Read more...] about Rescue in nick of time: Big-rig driver forgets dog is tied to trailer
