"Handbags stolen from elderly shoppers"
Source: Nottingham Police
Extract: Police are urging shoppers to be vigilant against thieves following two street robberies in two days in broad daylight.
In both attacks the victims were elderly women, and in both cases their handbags were stolen.
In the latest incident, a 91-year-old woman was robbed as she walked near to the junction of Frederick Street and Warren Avenue, in Stapleford, at about 3.20pm on Wednesday 3 May 2012.
The robber grabbed her handbag, then left the scene in a small grey car.
She was left shaken and suffered bruising to her arm and hand.
Her Burberry-style check bag, which had beige handles, contained black gloves, a light brown, wallet-style purse, and items of food.
In an earlier incident, at 2.15pm on Tuesday 2 May 2012, a 79-year-old woman was targeted near to the bus stop in Town Street, Bramcote.
The robber dragged the pensioner to the floor and fled up the hill, in the direction of Cow Lane, with her handbag.
The stolen bag is made of dark brown leather and has two hand straps. It contained a black leather-effect zipped purse, and a pink and green patterned umbrella.
The woman, who was injured in the attack, continues to receive treatment in hospital.

Comment: Does this make you sick as well?

"Warning over cheap booze which can blind you"
Source: Nottingham Post
Extract: Drinkers have been warned after the discovery of fake vodka containing "alarming" levels of a liquid which can cause blindness.
More than 40 bottles of vodka were seized from a shop in the Broadmarsh Centre - with some of them having a level of methanol 27 times the maximum permitted level.
Methanol is used in antifreeze and can cause serious damage to health, including blindness.

Comment: In the Comments section, I liked:
From mof_gedling: "Pour a little into the cap and set it alight, if it burns cleanly then its ok to drink, if it gives off a black smoke then take it to trading standards!"
From NFFC 1898 commented: "Amazingly this shop is still open in Broadmarsh and still trading - zero tolerance now shut it down!"

The trams are being built by Alstom in Barcelona as part of a £570m project to extend Nottingham's tram network to Chilwell and Clifton.

It will travel over the city's railway station, which is also undergoing a £67m redevelopment, to serve the south and south-west of the city.
The trams are already used in Paris, Madrid, Dublin, Istanbul and Melbourne.

Topic: Crime - Murder
"Mansfield murder case student: I never meant to hurt him"
Source: This is Nottingham
Extract: A student accused of murder aimed a kick at the man who died but did not want to hurt him, a court heard. Andrej Novakov, 19, of Kipling Street, Mansfield, told a jury at Nottingham Crown Court that he could not remember if his kick connected with Jonathan Turner.
Novakov is on trial for murdering Mr Turner in Mansfield along with Bragdas Kilic and Vjaceslavs Solovjos.
Kilic said Mr Turner had shouted "Poland is that way", and "go back to your own country" as he and friends were leaving the Vibe pub in Stockwell Gate last May.
Kilic said that as he turned around, Mr Turner was shouting "come on, come on" at him, asking for a fight.
The court heard yesterday that Novakov had been walking home after a night out drinking.
He then saw some friends outside the Vibe, who were with the two co-accused, before the fight started.
"I heard someone shout, 'that way', said Novakov. "I can't remember what he said exactly."
Kilic and Solovjos moved toward Mr Turner.
"I saw Kilic was fighting with a man," said Novakov. "I saw Solovjos being pulled by his sister. His sister was holding him."
Novakov, who was studying to be a bricklayer at Nottingham's former Castle College, said he stood watching.
John King, defending Novakov, said that at one point Mr Turner was seen to break free from the first part of the fight.
He said: "He runs across the road to the other side of Stockwell Gate and Kilic can be seen chasing after him. About 30 seconds after you are first seen on CCTV, you are then seen and it looks very much like you are aiming a kick at Mr Turner?"
Novakov agreed he aimed the one kick, then gradually moved away.

Comment: ...but did not want to hurt him - bollocks!

Topic: Wayne Rooney - Hair - Transplants
"Nottingham men get Hair-Transplants"
Source: This is Nottingham
Extract: Dozens of men in Notts are following the lead of Wayne Rooney and having a hair transplant, according to an aesthetic clinic.
Mapperley Park Clinic, in Mansfield Road, has seen a 200 per cent rise in inquiries from men since Rooney's well-documented transplant last June.
Paul Stapleton, managing director of the clinic, said: "We've been doing it since 2006 but on a very low-key basis.
"Since Wayne Rooney had his £12,000 transplant done, demand has increased radically.
"When you've got someone like him being open about it, people aren't as worried or embarrassed about it."
In the year before Rooney's transplant, the clinic performed ten hair transplant operations.
It has since performed 25 in less than a year.
It expects demand to rise further and has forecast that it will perform 50 in the next year.

Comment: My hair started to abandon me when I was 23.
