1) VAT - After the VAT rise to 20%, we talk to people who tell us they can’t afford to live in 2011 : Fortunately for me, I am not one of those people. Next...

2) Joanna Yeates - In light of Joanna Yeates’ murder, police are urging women in Bristol not to venture out alone at night : I'm not a woman, and I don't live in Bristol. Next...

3) Bins - How long has it been since your bins were last emptied? : It was emptied yesterday, thank you, without any fuss. Next...

4) Missing cat posters - A man was threatened with a £1,000 fine after putting up ‘missing cat’ posters in Bedford : He needs to fit a Loc8tor tag ( to the cat's collar ... makes it much easier to find. As for the trees, sounds like Bedford Council are taking the right approach.
