Does it count as local news if it makes the front page of the BBC website?

Just realised I have never eaten a gooseberry. I haven't lived.

I'd LOVE to stamp on that in front of his stupid face

A NEW-look branch of Wickes has been unveiled in Halesowen.

Okaaaay... not sure why that needs to be news. But...

Quote
The store also benefitted from a makeover by volunteers from ICEC Community Centre in Lye who worked for two days to build benches and planters from scratch to brighten up the front of the centre.

So a commercial property was spruced up by volunteers? I'm sure the article is missing something. The area the store is in is a grubby industrial zone, so I'm not sure how much you could do with it.


Bonus fact:
The Wickes branch is just across the (busy and grimy dual carriageway) road from the Leasowes park which is very pretty and worth a visit if you're anywhere near.

The police recommend that if you see a beat cop walking down the street, even if he/she doesn't notice you, it's for the best to go up to them and say "I'm sorry I've got loads of drugs on me. Just in my pockets didn't put any in my pants and socks because you told me not to but there's loads of it because I sell it for my job."

If only drug dealers would wear a top hat, there'd be no need to ruin the elastic on their Y-fronts.
