When Michael Gove visited a farm in Shropshire, his PA contacted the farmer he was visiting and informed them “the minister takes a size 9, can you please ensure he receives welllingtons for his visit.”

The story I was told by a couple of the older farm workers when I was a boy is that they were singling (hoeing) sugar beet one day (20 or 30 years before) in the field outside my house and a pebble size stone hit the ground close to them, from no where and it fizzled and hissed for a few moments and then cooled down. There would be a gang of 6 or 8 who witnessed it, nobody picked it up and pocketed it, they just left it and carried on. The chance of this being witnessed must have been / still is, billions to one.

I was outside late one evening last year making some charcoal. My place isn't particularly remote but it is a sparsely populated area so very quiet and also quite dark too.
As I stood there I heard something come whistling through the air very close by. Whatever it was landed in the next field with a thud.
I didn't see anything like streaks of fire or hear anything like a gunshot. It came in at about 45 degrees and from the sound I would say it was tumbling and half housebrick size, travelling jolly quick.
No idea what it was or where it had come from. Only two things I can come up with are bullet tumbling on the end of its trajectory or meteorite.

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
