A cat has got his owners chasing their tails - by taking trips on the Metro system

Jasper the ginger tabby vanishes from his North Shields home for six weeks at a time as he hitches a ride on public transport

And his owner Steph Keenan is thinking about buying him a puss pass so he won’t fall foul of inspectors.

Two women have died and at least 12 people were seriously injured on Tuesday, in the area of Malgara outside Thessaloniki, Greece, when a bus crashed into a truck.

According to the Greek police authorities, it would appear as though the truck was parked in the emergency lane but without its hazard warning lights on. The driver of the truck has been arrested.

Three people died on Tuesday, in a fire that broke out in an apartment in the suburb of Kordelio in the northern Greek city Thessaloniki. An elderly couple lived in the small 50 sqm apartment along with their three grandchildren. According to initial reports by the Greek fire department the fire was caused by the 70-year-old grandfather who set himself on fire with a can of petrol.

The fire spread rapidly to the rest of the apartment killing the 65-year-old grandmother and the 18-month-old grandchild. The two other grandchildren, aged 8 and 25-years-old, managed to escape from the blaze and are being treated for injuries.
