Cow poop fetish man jailed

A BRITISH man with a fetish for cow manure was beginning a two-year jail sentence today after he was caught sexually pleasuring himself while covered in dung on a farm in southwestern England.

David Truscott, 41, was found naked apart from a single sock by farmer Clive Roth's 16-year-old son last month, on Woodbury House Farm in Penzance, local newspaper The Falmouth Packet reported.

When officers arrived, he was covered in a large amount of slurry and mud and was surrounded by tissues.

It was the third time he was caught in similar circumstances at the same farm. He was previously jailed for offenses linked to his fetish.

Judge Christopher Elwen, presiding at Truro Crown Court, turned down defense calls for a suspended sentence, saying that Truscott had to be jailed for his "bizarre and perverted activities."

Truscott pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to breaching a restraining order and causing harassment.

Watermelon skiing isn't for the faint hearted, nor is it for those with feeble bones. But that's not stopping folks in Queensland, Australia from giving it a whirl.

Britain's unluckiest woman?

A WOMAN who dumped her truck-driver boyfriend for being dull, only to see him scoop a Lotto fortune, has been branded Britain's unluckiest woman.

Kerry Graves, 31, has known self-confessed Mr Boring Matthew Breach, 37, since schooldays.

They were a couple for 14 years but Ms Graves then walked out, telling pals she wanted "lots of sex".

She is now in a dingy bedsit with failed web cafe owner Travis Mains-Marten, 28, and their baby Blake.

Meanwhile Mr Breach, who admits his hobby is sleeping, is working out how to spend his jackpot, which was worth almost $30 million.

A friend said: "Kerry's got to be the unluckiest woman in the country. She was with Matthew through all the hard times and that inevitably caused strains - but after she walked out on him he struck it rich."

His mum Sandra, 67, added: "It's a shame because she was a lovely girl and we really liked her."

Boy almost buys fighter jet

AN overenthusiastic seven-year-old London boy almost bought his very own real-life Harrier fighter jet on eBay for £69,999 ($113,515).

The British-built Harrier jump jet was for sale on the site - but for a fixed price instead of an auction.

The youngster hit the "buy it now" button to purchase the restored fighter jet, causing his father to quickly apologize to the sellers and tell them his son was not able to buy the aircraft out of his pocket money.

"His dad rang up and profusely apologised to us, so it's still for sale. We've put it on as an auction now so that won't happen again," said a spokeswoman for Jet Art Aviation, of Bradford, central England, which is selling the Harrier.

The British-built jet was integral to the nation's arsenal in the Falklands War, but the Government put the elite fighting machines out of service in 1997.

Vegetarian couple barred from adopting

A VEGETARIAN couple on the Greek island of Crete has been barred from adopting a child because of doubts about their diet, a local social welfare official said today.

The decision was taken because the would-be adoptive parents, who have gone to court to overturn it, eat no meat or fish and officials feared this regimen would be applied to the child as well.

"We asked the University of Crete medical school on the issue and they said the child's diet must include meat, fish, etc," the head of the city's welfare services, Spyros Epitropakis, said.

"We do not discriminate but we were obliged to check this out. The issue is now in the hands of the judicial authorities," he said.

The university expert whose recommendation was used by the welfare services to reject the application has labeled the affair "unreasonable."

Mistaken Address

A man from Birmingham,UK, is being plagued by police calling at his house in error, due to an address mix-up.

Matthew Jillard, of Bordesley Green, said he had been visited by police more than 40 times in the past 18 months, often in the middle of the night. He said police confused his house in Repton Road with a nearby address in Repton Grove.

West Midlands Police said it had taken measures to stop it happening again, but Mr Jillard said they had failed.

The 38-year-old labourer said in Christmas week police had mistakenly called at his house five times, disturbing the friends and family he had staying with him, including one call at 0300 GMT and one at 0500 GMT.

"I just don't know what to do. Nine out of 10 times they are really apologetic. When my girlfriend rang Police HQ at Lloyd House the gaffer there said he knew all about it because they had seminars about not getting it wrong. We used to get post for the address in Repton Grove but that has stopped after we contacted them. We've put up signs, we've tried to get them to change their records. Some officers have said it is their sat-nav because they're not always that accurate. I really don't know what more we can do."

A police spokeswoman said: "West Midlands Police can confirm that officers have attended an incorrect address in Repton Road on several occasions. Officers have been in regular contact with the occupier to apologise for the mistakes. A number of measures have been put in place to stop this from happening again."

Streaker tackler gets red carded

A non-league footballer who was sent off for tackling a pitch invader who was dressed in a mankini has escaped a three-match ban. Dorchester Town's player-manager Ashley Vickers, 39, said he thought he was doing the stewards a favour by tackling Alan Young during the match on 7 March.

Vickers said he was "dumbfounded" by the red card and the Conference South club lodged an appeal last week. The FA said the red card still stands but it has withdrawn the match ban.

The organisation said the referee was right to dismiss the defender for violent conduct under the laws of the game but said the circumstances were exceptional - hence the withdrawal of the ban.

The incident happened during Dorchester's game away to Havant and Waterlooville. The score was at 1-1 at the time, with Vickers' team going on to suffer a 3-1 defeat.

Pitch invader Mr Young had evaded the attention of three officials for about 30 seconds before he was pulled to the ground. Havant & Waterlooville fan Mr Young admitted he ran onto the pitch for a bet and the club has since been charged with supporter misconduct by the FA.

Mr Young told BBC News last week: "It was only a bit of a joke. We all agreed at my local pub on Sunday I'd do it as a bet. The security there were too slow but Vickers caught me quite well. He should be a rugby player."
