In some wholesome news this morning, a herd of goats have taken over a town in north Wales.

The goat squad descended onto the empty streets of Llandudno while the human residents are in coronavirus lockdown – chowing down on some hedges along the way.

According to the BBC, the wild herd of around 122 Kashmiri goats usually venture down from the nearby Great Orme when the weather’s bad.

Some of the goats have recently had kids, and were seen eating flowers and hedges.

Local councillor Carol Marubbi told the BBC: “They are curious, goats are, and I think they are wondering what’s going on like everybody else”.

She added: “There are very few visitors on the top [of the Orme], so they have come down in their droves. There isn’t anyone else around so they probably decided they may as well take over.”

Councillor Marubbi said that everyone in Llandudno was ‘very proud’ of the goats, adding that the animals have been providing much entertainment for people isolating at home – who have a front row window seat to the goat show.

They’ve also been providing great entertainment for those of us not in north Wales, and long may their reign continue.

Edmund O’Leary shared a simple message on Twitter over the weekend, reaching out for people to say hello, little did he know how far his message would go.

Edmund caught international attention after tweeting about his mental health during the pandemic.

After living alone throughout the entire pandemic, Edmund found himself feeling rock bottom so he took to Twitter to reach out to people, he wrote: “I am not ok. Feeling rock bottom. Please take a few seconds to say hello if you see this tweet. Thank you.”

He has been flooded with support from people all across the world, and his Tweet has racked up over 100,000 replies. 

Edmund appeared on This Morning earlier today to discuss the aftermath of his tweet which he revealed has been ‘phenomenal’.

Ruth asked Edmun what led him to the tweet, he said: “On Friday I was feeling very depressed, I was feeling more and more depressed as the hours were passing, feeling very isolated, and I just felt there wasn’t much more I could take, and I just reflected on a friend of mine on Twitter, a Twitter friend that has mental health problems.

“Sometimes he tweets before he goes to bed ‘says hi if theres anyone out there who can say goodnight’, I always acknowledge his tweet”.

“I was just thinking if it works for him it may work for me.”

Edmund said he’s had so many private messages too. He added: “I’ve had many men send me private messages as well as normal tweets to say that they could not do what I did.

“They just don’t have the courage to do so, and they said you’re a courageous man for doing so. They were applauding me.

Edmund then offered some heartfelt advice to people, in particular men, who are struggling with mental health problems: “Try to reach out for help, don’t feel alone, we are in for a pretty awful winter by all accounts, so reach out for help, reach out to loved ones, seek medical help if necessary.”

If you are feeling lonely in the pandemic or need help with your mental health, head to Every Mind Matters for more support or information.

Video of grandma dropping baby to save falling prosecco glass sparks fierce debate

Did she do the right thing?

A video of a grandmother who grabbed a prosecco glass and let a baby fall has sparked a huge debate online on whether she did the right thing.

Originally the video was shared to be humourous, with the caption: “And Grandmother of the year award goes to…”

The woman, who can be seen in the video holding a baby up against a table, grabs the glass off the child and in doing so removed her arm which was supporting the child up. 

The little one inevitably falls on the floor.

The internet is in a pretty fierce debate if she did the right thing.

Some people are claiming that she did the right thing by grabbing the glass, which could have potentially shattered on the floor and caused a serious injury.

One person wrote: “To be fair, if the glass broke that could have seriously hurt the baby.”

Another added: “If the glass fell with the baby, it would have broken and the baby would have been hurt. She did the right thing.”

However, some people are saying the grandmother was ‘irresponsible’. One person replied to the tweet with a picture of a woman smiling as she throws a baby in the air. 

A second said: “She. Was. Holding. Up. The. Baby. If the glass was already gone, she should have kept holding the baby. Neither would have been an issue if she had some control over the toddler grabbing a glass of alcohol. She did literally all the worst things. Yes everyone survived.”

A third wrote: “Why she let the baby get that close to the glass in the first place? like the baby had ahold of it and everything.”

Another tried to defuse the situation, pointing out that no one was harmed and that’s the priority: “That could have gone very badly. One of those things that happen in the blink of an eye. We all should just be happy with the outcome and leave it at that.”

Tesco staff have shared clips online of a man trashing the store after ‘being asked to wear a mask’.

The man was filmed at the Ealing store in London trashing the aisles, pulling crisps and popcorn packets onto the floor.

According to reports the man visited the store last month without a mask, with staff asking him to put on a face covering or leave.

Instead, the man started shouting and swearing before storming down the confectionary aisle and throwing anything he could grab on the floor.

In the video, staff and customers can be seen watching the man in shock.

The police were called to the store on Uxbridge Road at 9pm on September 22nd, following reports of anti social behaviour. 

They said: “Officers arrested a man on suspicion of criminal damage. He was further arrested on suspicion of actual bodily harm in relation to an alleged assault (minor injury) on a staff member at the store.”

The man is set to appear at Uxbridge Magistrates’ Court on November 25th to answer charges of intending to destroy or damage property, and assault by beating.

Staff at shops can refuse entry to people who fail to wear a compulsory mask, or they can call the police. The fine for not wearing a mask is now £200.

A Tesco spokesperson said: “We’re grateful to the police for their assistance following a disturbance at our Tesco Express store on Uxbridge Road a number of weeks ago.”
