When The Lights Went Out…

In a very important play-off semi-final second leg between Football League Two outfits Accrington Stanley and AFC Wimbledon – with pulses and desire rising and rising – what happens?? Go on have a guess?

Well would you believe, with the game finely poised heading into the final few minutes of extra time – the Dons leading their opponents by a 3-2 aggregate score – some of the floodlights go out!

Bulbs in two of the three floodlights went out and referee Eddie Ilderton had to bring about a 10-minute stoppage. AFC Wimbledon manager Neal Ardley spoke to the officials during the [...]

All Aboard Sir David…

Yes – Boaty McBoatface previously topped the public vote – but The UK’s new polar research ship is to be named RRS Sir David Attenborough.

Sir David Attenborough’s name was one of the top suggestions with over 11,000 members of the public supporting it and it was chosen on the basis of his career as a broadcaster and natural scientist. Boaty McBoatface topped the list with [...]

Exceeding All Expectations

Leicester City have won the Premier League title in one of the greatest sporting stories of all time.

Leicester started the campaign as 5,000-1 outsiders for the title – after almost being relegated last season – and have achieved one of the most admirable title wins there will ever be.

They had lost just three league games in what has been described as a “fairytale” and the “most unlikely triumph in the history of team sport”. Closest challengers Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Manchester City, Manchester United and last year’s champions Chelsea, have all failed to match the Foxes’ consistency across the [...]

The Right Light!

Recent headlines from Merseyside have shown how lights had been spotted in the sky across Liverpool with many people very unsure where exactly these lights where coming from…

Residents from Bootle, Anfield and Kirkby all reported seeing the phenomenon with lots of people speculating that the flashing moving lights were extra-terrestrials!

Subsequently people from these areas navigated to social media platforms to share what they had seen and spread the word. A lot of people were confused, and in many ways unsettled, by what they had witnessed with the possibility of aliens even mentioned. Yes, aliens would you believe!

It’s Up In The Air…

Aviation warning lights….What are they actually used for? I can already sense you ready to ask….

Well, they are a key element for anybody involved with the aviation industry as they are used as a guide – or could I even say a marker – to warn pilots of any oncoming obstructions to their flight path. This clearly shows why the maintenance of aviation warning lights is monitored by very heavy legislation. This is done to make sure that regular reviews of the lights are made and to make absolutely sure that they are ALWAYS in operation!

After doing a little [...]
