IT is one of the most notorious addresses in Britain — the Cricklewood flat where serial killer Dennis Nilsen stashed a dozen victims under the floorboards. The monster — who died on Saturday aged 72 — had sex with rotting corpses that he kept for months at his maggot-infested House of Horrors in Melrose Avenue in suburban North London. Today it looks much the same from the street — but inside it is unrecognisable after being given a stunning Grand Designs-style makeover by its new owners. Undaunted first-time buyers Bruno and Mathilde were not put off by its grisly past and have transformed it into their dream home — and now plan to start a family there. They even grow fruit and vegetables in the garden where Nilsen once burned piles of corpses and raked the bones into the soil. And they're planning plan to host a World Cup barbecue this summer. NHS manager Bruno, 38, admits many people would run a mile when they found out the … [Read more...] about We bought Dennis Nilsen’s murder home where serial killer stashed 12 bodies under floor – and for a cut price

“Everything is on the table” for L Brands’ struggling Victoria’s Secret brand, company executives said Thursday morning, as the company plans to close roughly 53 of its stores in 2019. The company has pulled back on investing in new and remodeled Victoria’s Secret stores and is speeding up its store closure plans from its previous average of roughly 15 store closures a year, executives said during a conference call Thursday. They said the company is evaluating every element of the brand, whether that be merchandising, pricing or format. The planned store closures for 2019 make up roughly 4 percent of the company’s 1,143 Victoria’s Secret stores worldwide. Shares of L Brands, which also owns Bath & Body Works, were trading down more than 7 percent on Thursday morning, after it reported mixed results in the holiday quarter Wednesday evening.

In recent years, employers across the country have faced a great many class action and collective action lawsuits in which employees have alleged they are entitled to be paid for the time spent in security screenings before they leave their employers’ premises – but after they have already clocked out for the day. Retailers have been particularly susceptible to these claims as many require employees to undergo “bag checks” before they depart their stores to ensure that employees are not attempting to carry merchandise out in their bags or coats.In late 2014, in Integrity Staffing Solutions, Inc. v. Busk, the United States Supreme Court held that time spent in security screenings was not compensable under the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”).While Busk would seem to leave few circumstances under which employees could bring viable “bag check” claims under the FLSA, it did not put an end to the claims. Among other … [Read more...] about Have We Now Seen The Last Of “Bag Check” Class Actions?
