11. Everyone knows the coolest place to be seen this summer is the World Watercress Eating Championships in Alresford, Hampshire.

23. What is it with seagulls these days?
As the story chillingly reports: “Residents reported seeing a mother grab her young baby and dash to the car after being bombarded by the gulls.
