A 10-YEAR-old boy was found dead and an eight-year-old girl is fighting for life after a suspected knife attack in a flat. Kane Morris’s body was discovered around 2.30am on Sunday at the property in Coupar Angus, Perthshire. Weeping locals paid tribute to “beautiful wee boy” Kane and prayed for the youngster in hospital as police launched a probe into the tragedy. Cops are understood to have found both youngsters with stab wounds after a member of the public raised the alarm. An injured man, 37 — believed to have jumped from a window — was arrested nearby. A source close to Kane’s distraught family said: “Everyone is shocked by what happened. “We have no idea what’s gone on in that house. “We’re all heartbroken. Kane was a keen dancer and had won Coupar Has Talent twice. It’s just horrible.” A number of grieving locals made their Facebook profile photo an image of two burning candles.

THE haunting outline of a soldier has appeared, marked in rain water, on the same street named after a fallen rifleman. Samuel Bassett was just 20-years-old when he was killed in Afghanistan - 31 days into his first tour. But almost exactly nine years to the day the young soldier was killed on November 8, markings that resemble a soldier appeared on the Plymouth street named after Bassett. Bryony Summerfield, 25, told Plymouth Live: "I looked out the window at the house opposite and saw it straight away. "The marking first appeared during the rain on Friday and haven't disappeared." She said she had never noticed any water markings before - and was touched by the timing near Remembrance Day. The local added: "Obviously this street is named after Samuel Bassett which is a nice tribute to him." The photograph was posted on social media, with Bryony not the only one to notice the similarities. One person wrote: "Maybe that's his sign, he's still around in spirit". Another added: … [Read more...] about Soldier outline appears on street named after rifleman killed in Afghanistan on Remembrance Sunday

VIEWERS of Peter Jackson's new movie They Shall Not Grow Old have praised the colourised footage as 'mesmerising' after it hit the small screen last night. The Lord of the Rings director remastered the Imperial War Museum's archive of black-and-white film from WW1 and transformed it into colour. He used modern techniques to erase the technical limitations and dubbed it over with a soundtrack of laughter, explosions and screams. Commentary from more than 120 war veterans recorded in the 60s and 70s runs over the top of the images, bringing the reality of fighting in the First World War to life. And the documentary has evoked an incredible response among viewers who have hailed the director as "amazing" and some even say it should win a Bafta. Taking to Twitter, one viewer said: "Peter Jackson's Great War doc is both breathtaking and utterly harrowing. I've never seen these events portrayed in this way. Just outstanding." One tweeted: "This Peter Jackson [film] is extraordinary. The … [Read more...] about They Shall Not Grow Old viewers praise Peter Jackson’s ‘mesmerising’ colourised WW1 movie as footage brings Great War to life
THE guns had been silent for two years as millions of Britons stood to honour their dead at the first ever Remembrance Day. Half way through the two-minute silence a widow, still raw with grief, began to sob. By the time the buglers at the newly-unveiled Cenotaph sounded the Last Post 60 seconds later, nearly 1,000 people were in tears. Tomorrow, exactly a century after the Great War ended, organisers are recreating the extraordinary scenes of the first national service of remembrance in London. The year before there had been a victory parade past a temporary war memorial made of plywood. But in the summer of 1920, the Cabinet decided that Whitehall would be at the heart of national mourning and remembrance throughout the British Empire. As well as a permanent Cenotaph to the Glorious Dead, the body of an unidentified British soldier would represent the 887,858 Tommies killed in the four-year war. His body would be buried in Westminster Abbey, the parish church of the Empire, for a … [Read more...] about First WW1 Remembrance Day saw the unknown warrior returned from France as 1.25m Brits filed past memorial in London 100 years ago
