House-proud mouse caught on camera tidying garden shed | SWNS TV
A homeowner puzzled as to who was mysteriously tidying up his garden shed late at night was astonished to find the culprit was a HOUSE PROUD MOUSE. Stephen Mckears, 72, first noticed objects moving in his shed a month ago and asked his neighbour Rodney Holbrook, 70, to help him get to the bottom of the mystery. The retired electrician noticed plastic clips appearing in an old ice cream tub filled with peanuts which he keeps to feed the birds before more objects began to accumulate. Questioning his sanity, Stephen emptied the tub each night, scattering the nuts and bolts across his shed, only to discover the mess had been cleaned by the morning. After weeks of finding large screws, plastic leads, nuts and bolts neatly filed away, the pair decided to set up a trail camera to uncover the mystery guest. Welcome to SWNS TV.

Couple pack it all in and move into their new mobile home - an old white van
Adam Croft, 29, and Nikki Pepperell, 32, spent a year converting the van after the cost of renting became too much to bare. They spent £3,500 on the extra-large Ford Transit Luton and a further #6,500 doing it up themselves while living with their parents. The home away from home now has a kitchen, toilet, shower, windows, porch, new flooring, sofa and a bedroom. The couple, from Stroud, Glos., both gave up office jobs for the new home and now intend to spend at least a year travelling across Europe, possibly never to return.

Blind girl banned from using cane at school due to Health & Safety
A blind girl has been banned from using her walking cane at school because of "health and safety issues" - in case she TRIPS up teachers and fellow pupils. Lily-Grace Hooper, seven, suffered a stroke when she was just four days old, which left her virtually blind. But earlier this year a charity donated her a fibre-glass walking cane after her confidence soared when she started using cardboard tubes to help guide her way at home. But her mum Kristy, 38, has been left "absolutely livid" after a risk assessment done on behalf of the school said the cane caused high risk to people around Lily-Grace. Hambrook Primary School in Bristol told her not to use it in school, and the report suggested she have full adult support at all times, and she was told to "walk carefully".The move by the school and the Sensory Support Service - which does assessments for schools - has been slammed by charities.Furious mum Kristy, from Bristol, said: "It is a disability, but I want to celebrate it and make sure she can become independent. "When the school told me she can no longer bring her cane into school, I just thought this must be health and safety gone mad.

Latest figures show a dramatic slump in numbers of officers recruited, with last year's numbers being the lowest for seven years. Just 81 per cent of posts were filled for the year 2014/2015, compared to 95 per cent the previous year. Graduate recruitment to the Armed forces has steadily fallen over the last decade and is now 27 per cent lower than in 2005. Top brass are concerned about the number of people who do not know that the Army is recruiting - 46 per cent of 14 - 24 year olds. They are hampered by common misconceptions among the public, from the belief that there are no skilled jobs, to worrying about the risk on the front line or thinking that officers only come from an Oxbridge education. For the first time in eight years, the Army today launched a national Officer careers 'roadshow', called 'With Heart. With Mind'.
