Scrap breaks out between hikers on Snowdon as walker skips long queue to reach summit

No one likes a queue jumper.




Two hikers were videoed in an altercation at the top of Snowdon over August bank holiday weekend.

The footage, shared on TikTok, shows huge queues reaching the trig point at the summit of the Welsh peak.

While most people were queuing to get their view from the top, one walker decided to clamber up to the summit on another route.

Captured on video is the moment another walker approached the hiker and they end up pushing each other.

Chants from the people queuing can then be heard saying ‘join the queue’, while another woman shouts ‘there’s a queue!’.

Kenan Ramsay who filmed the incident shared the video on TikTok with the caption ‘Don’t do it’. 

The video has racked up over 415,000 views and has almost 700 comments including one that says ‘there’s queues to get up hills now? we really overpopulated huh [sic]’. 

Another wrote ‘there is no queue at the summit of a mountain, I’ll be doing what I want’, someone else added ‘lol all them mugs waiting in the queue, I would have [sic] done the same as him’.

He shared a second video where people booed and screamed at more people to ‘join the queue’, followed by one woman’s loud scream of ‘Join the queue!’. 

Kenan has now changed his bio on TikTok to read ‘I queued’. 

The incident took place following an open letter from the Welsh tourism leaders who called for visitors to be respectful of the Snowdonia National Park. 

The letter warned people against ‘fly-camping’ following a ‘significant and worrying increase’ in the number of people camping outside designated campsites.

Morrisons shoppers upset over ‘intimidating’ Union Jack packaging in the supermarket




@MarinaNigrelli / Twitter

Morrisons use of the Union Jack flag on British products has kicked off a debate online.

It was sparked when a shopper posted a picture of the Union Jack branding on the supermarket’s eggs and butter.

Pictures of the products were posted to Twitter, with the customer writing: “Just back from a trip to Morrisons. Is it just me, or have their butter and eggs always been this… patriotic?”

The post sparked a debate and divided opinion in the comments, with some saying they will boycott the items while others argued it was just marking them as being British products.

Someone replied to the tweet to say: “Very upset by porridge I saw in Morrisons. This flagging everything is very unpleasant and quite intimidating.”

A second added: “Retaliate. I’m no longer buying anything packaged as such. Hurt them through their bank accounts.”

While another replied: “Won’t be buying eggs from Morrisons.”

Some people were confused as to why people were so offended by the Union flag being on British products.

One person said: “I can’t believe you all get triggered over the fact it’s showing we have British products in our stores. You should be proud that it’s cut down on air miles and transport costs and in turn is helpful for the environment. No, you’d rather moan about the national flag.”

A second asked: “They also have the French flag on Brie and Camembert cheeses and the Italian flag on a number of meats. Should we remove them as well? Or is it just because it is the British flag?”

A man trying to make a swift getaway from police ended up getting more than he bargained for.

The suspect ended up with a sore head after smashing into a ‘one way’ sign after his concentration slipped.

The 33-year-old male was attempting to give Greater Manchester Police the slip after stealing a £760 Moschino bag in the city centre.

While he was making off from officers he looked behind him and ended up faceplanting straight into the sign.

He was subsequently arrested and taken into custody to recover from a ‘sore head’.

GMP took to Twitter and Facebook yesterday to share the news, saying that ‘all signs suggest he’ll make a full recovery’.

GMP City Centre wrote: “One way to custody… A 33yr old male stole a £760 Moschino hand bag. Whilst making off from officers, he looked behind him & then faceplanted straight into a One Way road sign.

“Male now in custody recovering from a sore head, all signs suggest he’ll make a full recovery!”

Police at the Arndale as huge queues form on first day of non-essential shops reopening

Are you heading out to the shops today?

Today, Monday April 12th, sees stage two of the government’s roadmap out of lockdown come into effect.

As part of this second stage, pubs, bars and restaurants can reopen for outdoor drinking and dining, while places like gyms, salons and hairdressers can also welcome people back.

Non-essential retail can also throw open its doors once again, meaning shops in places like the city centre, Arndale and Trafford Centre can reopen from today.

Huge queues have been forming as people are keen to return to shops after lockdown, with large gatherings of people spotted at the Arndale.

Photos and videos have been posted to social media showing people trying to get in the shopping centre from Market Street, with the Arndale opening at 8am today.

Sean Hansford posted a video to Twitter showing a large group being dispersed from the entrance to the Arndale, with very little social distancing happening.

A security guard asks them to move away and to social distance, but the group initially just congregates nearby.

Later videos show a more orderly queue going down Market Street after Covid marshals managed to organise shoppers, with police also spotted assisting with the queues.

Large queues were also spotted at Primark over at the Trafford Centre, as the popular budget retailer reopened its doors.

Will you be heading out shopping today, or are you waiting until things calm down a bit?
