  • Italian man fined for walking 280 miles after argument with his wife during lockdown

    A man who became annoyed after rowing with his wife was stopped by police. Checking for people not adhering to lockdown rules after he had managed to walk 280 miles.

    Italian man fined for walking 280 miles: Although he and his wife lived in the northern town of Como, on the Italian/Swiss border, police discovered him breaking the lockdown rules some 280 south. Near the town of Fano on the Adriatic coast. He said that after the argument he needed to walk to calm himself down.  And after a week was found by police who couldn’t believe he had walked so far.

    Upon checking him out it was discovered that his wife had indeed reported him missing a week earlier. Reports from Italian media said that the man was cold and tired but seemed ok in himself. The unnamed 48-year-old man said that he had not realised how far he had walked to calm down. He told the officers who found hism that “I’m fine, just a little tired.”

    His wife, who came to pick him up, confirmed that he had stormed out of the house after their row. And hadn’t been seen since. However, as well as picking up her husband’s overnight hotel bill in Fano, she was also told to pay the €400 fine he had been given by police for breaching the Covid overnight curfew.

  • Sources claim Welsh Evening 9PM Curfew Is Imminent From Welsh Leader Drakeford

    An Imminent Welsh evening curfew is a big possibility according to close sources to Welsh Assembly Members

    Welsh leader Mark Drakeford has already closed down bars and restaurants at 6pm in Wales, whilst banning them from selling alcoholic beverages.

    Drakeford has also already addressed the Welsh nation, stating that he will take further steps if required in the battle against the Coronavirus pandemic in Wales.

    One of the leaders main concerns is the activity of the younger generations in the evening, illegal house parties over the festive period and youths assembling on the streets at meeting points.

    Now a close source to Cardiff AM Neil McEvoy has told Global247news how he understands that a Welsh curfew is on the agenda in the corridors of power in Cardiff Bay.

    The political source said: “A curfew is the next step that Drakeford is considering, Mark has been studying what’s been taking place in other European countries, rather than following the guidance of England, just as we saw with the ‘fire break’ lockdown recently”

    “Under consideration, if the Coronavirus figures do not drop quickly is an evening curfew, just as they operate in Europe and has resulted in a considerable fall in infection numbers”

    “Again, it’s common knowledge at the Sendd that no vote will be taken on this measure by Assembly ministers and will like the recent regulations a directly ordered regulation by Mark Drakeford, taking advice from his safety and medical experts.”

    “A curfew time has already been studied by them, the study shows a time of either 9 or 10PM until 7AM, where all Welsh citizens will have to be at home between these hours – the idea behind the ‘think tank’ is that it will stop the younger generation especially, gathering and spreading infection of the virus, also a way of containing people in Wales and preventing travel to places such as Bristol and other border towns where regulations are different”

    “One of the factors of a 9 or 10PM curfew is that it allows 3 to 4 hours for everyone to return home before it starts and avoiding congregation to meet the curfew deadline, there are likely to be exemptions for vital night workers”

    ” Fines will be given out for curfew flouters, although the amounts are also still being discussed, although in Europe they start at  €1000″

    “Unless the infection figures fall quickly under the new regulations that started yesterday – I feel this is imminent” he finished.

    The curfew policy across Europe, is still being rolled out, whilst Spain has already a curfew in place, France starts it’s national curfew on December 15th after being in a second national lockdown and State Of Emergency.

    Spanish citizens have now been under curfew for over a month, with also their bars and restaurants having a 6PM closure, although it has proved to have been a success, to where the governing bodies are proposing to relax the laws tomorrow after their ‘Bank Holiday weekend’.

    Costa del Sol based Dr Rupert Hayman, told Global247news how he has seen the curfew procedures work, he said:

    “Rates of infection have fallen considerably in Andalucia since the curfew was put in place, everything closes at 6PM and the curfew commences at 10PM until 7AM to where everybody has to conform, what has taken place it has prevented evening gatherings of people totally, to which was a large proportion of blame for the second wave here, it clearly has worked although the general public were against it when first implemented.”

    ” In my personal medical opinion, it’s a good idea” he finished.

  • Video: Squirrel gets sozzled on fermented pears

    Recent video footage shows a squirrel nearly falling over after consuming a pear from a kind hearted lady’s fridge.

    Squirrel gets sozzled on fermented pears: Katy Morlok said that she had an old pear hanging around in the fridge which she thought would be a tasty treat for her little furry friend, who she called “Lil Red”. However, she realized later on that it had become fermented after seeing Lil Red swaying from side to side !
    Morlok thought she was leaving out a safe nibble for the squirrels, but Lil Red’s apparent stupor ― and repeat business ― indicated otherwise.

    Morlok, of Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota said “And then it kind of dawned on me … oh no, those pears were so old I bet they fermented. And then he got drunk and I did not mean to do that, so I went out and I grabbed all the pears.”

    She said that he didn’t need a hair of the dog and had recovered after a “little hangover breakfast.” In an article written recently called “Four Reasons Not To Feed Wildlife” the Humane Society Wildlife Land Trust writes “It’s OK to feed squirrels if you’d like, but do so from a feeder — never by hand.” And do try to make a happy snack time not turn into a happy hour !!

  • Cross Border Cooperation measures announced between Spain & Portugal

    Spain and Portugal announced a series of measures on Saturday to strengthen cross-border cooperation, including better access to health and social services for citizens living along their shared 750-mile border.

    Following an annual summit in Guarda, Portugal, the prime ministers of both countries said a new identity card would allow people working on the other side of the border to access health services there.

    The measures are aimed at helping 1.6 million Portuguese and 3.4 Spanish inhabitants along the border, which comprises some of the poorest districts in both countries.

    At a press conference after the summit, Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa said ambulance services would operate across both countries so that patients could be served by the nearest vehicle, whether from Portugal or Spain.

    Other measures expected include bilingual schools and a joint centre for combating fires. A full package will be announced by the end of the day on Saturday.

    The border has remained open to workers and transport of goods between mid-March to July 1, despite the coronarivus pandemic. But it was closed to tourists, hurting local businesses reliant on tourism. [L8N2E826K]

    “I am in Portugal every day. Everyone knows me,” said Florencio Ramos Ramos from Spain who sells wild mushrooms in his shop in the tiny municipality of Salamanca.

    “But we’ve always been a disadvantaged zone – both the Portuguese side, and the Spanish,” he told Portuguese broadcaster RTP.
