Stoke paper but the restaurant is actually in Bury.
If I'm ever up that way and wanting a curry, I'll make a point of going there; it seems to get good reviews and, as the manager has pointed out, it's hard running businesses like his these days.

Also the website on which the tale appeared is run by the craptacularly useless Reach plc whose webby SCIENCE does not play nicely with fondleslabs, so I could barely get beyond the headlines before the page reloaded five times and then b0rked.

Reach media sites don't open well on a laptop either. Too many autoplaying videos and other shit.

You’re all right as long as it isn’t bats. You can’t get rid of bats because the have rights you know. Everything else is fair game though; I recommended a 410 to start with as it’ll make less of a ,ess of your ceiling.

I suggest a humane trap, then give it to the RSPCA who will do the dastardly deed for you, it being illegal to release a grey squirrel into the wild

Rather than shirking the dirty deed onto someone else who really doesn't want to do it, we bought a proper squirrel trap.  The deceased American tree rat (I refuse to grace the evil interloper vermin with the name squirrels, which as everyone knows, are red and cute) makes excellent food for the red kites, and buzzards round here.  If more appear, they'll get the same treatment.

Man gives up cycling because communists force him to breathe clean air.
Quote
Ian told SomersetLive: "I would cycle to work and back every day, I’d cycle to the pub, cycle to meet my mates. I rarely used a vehicle.

"I had saved up to buy my 1999 Mazda Bongo van and then done up it inside, so it was a very personal thing and I had stopped it from going to landfill.

"But it wasn’t compliant with the Clean Air Zone, so every single time I left my house I was fined £9 - which I thought was a bit communist really.
