Snippets from the media

This was nice to read:

WEIGHING in at 20st, Lindsey Cooper had problems getting on a bike, never mind riding one.

However, the 45-year-old set out on a mission to shed the pounds, and now, 13 months on and 8st 7lb lighter, Lindsey is taking part in a gruelling 250-mile charity bike ride across Cuba, above.


This not so much:

A MAJOR city centre route has reopened and a motorist arrested after an accident left a cyclist fighting for his life.

The collision was between a bike and an Orange Fiat Punto and it happened opposite the Millbrook Star filling station shortly after 7.20am.


And, er, the accompanying image? Traffic chaos in Southampton.

One more: a giant toaster

IT has been described as a giant toaster but Rhinopatch – the infrared road repair machine – is Southampton’s latest weapon in the fight against potholes.


Working like a toaster, the machine melts and resets the road instead of digging it up and replacing it.

Now may be a good time to go back to fillthathole.
