Liam Gallagher is known for being incredibly active on Twitter, but his latest tweet has caused a bit of a meltdown among Oasis fans

Last night the former Oasis star informed his followers that he was going to retire as a solo artist after album number three, but it was the next bit that really got fans excited.

According to Liam, the reason he’s quitting is because Oasis are set to reform in 2022, after he received a call from his brother.

He tweeted: “I intend to retire as solo artist after album no3 as I have just had a call from my brother begging me to start oasis again in 2022 if you believe in life after love c’mon you know LG x”

Whether this is legit or not, it’s not stopped fans from getting carried away, with one replying: “It’s 2022 gaz Southgate has finally brought football home the gallagher brothers step out at Wembley with an England flag over their shoulders blasting live forever to 90,000 people wearing England bucket hats. Imagine the scenes”.

Ever since Oasis broke up back in August 2009, Mancunians everywhere have waited with bated breath in the hope of good news from either of the Gallagher brothers about getting the band back together.

Unfortunately, after each public argument that possibility seemed more and more unlikely, so this news has done wonders to fan the flames of excitement.

WIll it actually happen? We’ll just have to sit back and see how it plays out…

Yes, ANOTHER lorry has got stuck under this notorious Greater Manchester bridge

It’s happened again…

Just weeks after we reported that a van got stuck under a notorious Greater Manchester railway bridge, yet another vehicle has met the same fate.

Even though there is large yellow lettering warning drivers that it is actually a low bridge, people still keep trying their luck.

Located on Prescott Street in Wigan, this time the driver of a white lorry thought their vehicle could fit under the bridge – it couldn’t.

According to reports the incident happened on the evening of Monday July 4th as the evening rush hour got underway.

Naturally, this led to traffic chaos along both the road and surrounding area.

A photo of the lorry in question was posted to social media, showing the substantial damage it had received after getting stuck.

One social media user said, as per Wigan Today: “Getting out of hand now this just put bollards up and stop it as a rat run.”

Another added: “Too many getting stuck under that bridge”, while a third joked: “Got to admit the guys who built that bridge did a good job.”

The bridge has earned itself quite the reputation among drivers in the town thanks to its deceptively low parapet.

Over the years, a number of vans and lorries have wound up wedged under the bridge – at least once a month, according to one resident – which ironically features a bold ‘LOW BRIDGE’ sign on both sides.

And so many drivers ignore the sign and get their vehicles stuck under the bridge, in fact, that there is even a Facebook page dedicated to shaming those who underestimate the size of their vehicle.

The description for the Box Vans vs Prescott St Bridge Facebook page simply reads: “A collection of photos of idiots who don’t know the height of the vehicle they’re driving”.

The page does exactly what it says on the tin; shares updates and photos whenever a van gets itself wedged under the bridge.

Lurpak has been spotted for £9.35 in one supermarket and shoppers are furious

‘Stop the world I want to get off’

As the cost of living crisis continues to hit us in our bank accounts, one rather inconspicuous, common supermarket item has become a barometer for rising prices: Lurpak.

The humble butter spread has gone viral in recent weeks as people take to social media to reveal how much its price has risen in various supermarkets.

This obsession has reached a peak this week, with a 1kg tub of Lurpak spotted for a whopping £9.35 by one social media user.

The expensive tub of Lurpak butter was shared to Twitter by Josh Christian, who said: “Stop the world I want to get off… @Lurpak come on lads this is a joke @Conservatives this is all your fault we’re all going to be eating dry toast stop taking off us and sort this mess out people are starving while your m8 are getting richer”.

And that’s not the only place raising the price of large tubs of the butter, with some shoppers spotting a 1kg pack costing £9 at Ocado online.

As well as that, Morrisons is selling 1kg packs of Lurpak for £7.50 on its website, while last week a 500g tub was seen going for £5 – just a short while ago this would have cost £3.65.

Shoppers have been questioning why the price has risen so much, with Vivien McDermott saying: “Why is it so expensive? Morrisons salted butter 250g was £1.75 last week so £7 if you buy a kilo worth. Save a few quid that way.”

Jayne Gardiner added: “That’s disgusting, I’d never pay that, just to have jam on toast would cost over a tenner, no way.”

And it seems that Lurpak is in such high demand that it’s even been spotted with security tags in at least one Asda supermarket.

​​Charlie Bennett shared a photo of the heavily protected tub, writing: “Britain in 2022… Lurpak butter is at £6 a tub in ASDA and even has a security tag on it.”

The buttery news comes as food prices continue to rocket on the whole around the country, with experts blaming soaring inflation, Brexit, the war in Ukraine and a cost of living crisis.

This follows the recent news that B&M shoppers will now be able to get over 1,000 products sent directly to their doorstep, thanks to the launch of the retailer’s new delivery service.

The service – a first in B&M’s forty-four-year long history – was launched following a customer feedback survey that showed an overwhelming number of customers struggled with transporting larger and bulkier items home.

But now, customers will be able to browse through a range of over 1,000 products online and get them sent right to their homes.

While not all products are available just yet, there are multiple items from the home and furniture, garden, electrical and kids toys to browse from.
