Train into Edinburgh breaks down after problems with horn

Not sure whose horn was the one that broke the train. (Don’t click the link unless you really like shitty local news websites that load and play 30 videos and make you do a questionnaire in lieu of providing you any actual content).

The equivalent of going to the newsagents to get your Telegraph & Argos but being hassled by beggars and flashers on the long route.

Dunno where else to put this (is it worth starting a 'How shit is the BBC these days' thread?)

Singapore otters photobomb UK couple's marriage proposal



So, hang on, you went out with the express intention of watching some otters - along with a wildlife photographer - then you were surprised when some otters turned up?

Quote
The otters are part of a group known as the Bishan 10, one of several otter families thriving in Singapore's urban areas.
They have featured in multiple news outlets, a David Attenborough documentary and have whole Facebook groups dedicated to them.
Mr Doyle and his now fiancée Mary Lister are travelling around the world and had contacted Mr Seah, who regularly follows and photographs the otters, to see if he could help them see them while they were in town.
On Tuesday, they met up with Mr Seah and a group of other local photographers, who then led them to the Marina Reservoir in the city.

Quote
"When I asked them to pose for a photo, the otters came out of the water and approached the couple," photographer Bernard Seah told the BBC.
"I was like, oh my god, I cannot believe this.


Fuck.

Hotel apologises for 'dummy body' tribute to UK couple's dead son
https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2018/dec/07/hotel-apologises-for-dummy-body-tribute-to-uk-couples-dead-son

"His godmother, Karen Baker, who was on holiday with the couple, had asked staff at the five-star Royalton Resort to surprise them with balloons and cake in their bedroom to mark the day.
The hotel workers instead created an effigy of Alex by stuffing the couple’s clothes with towels and arranging it on the bed. The figure had tears on its face and a can of lager in its hand and was positioned next to petals spelling out: “We miss you Alex.” "
