It is believed the man was not fully aware of his actions.

New bridge linking Greece and Turkey to be built this year

The construction of a new bridge between Turkey and Greece near the Maritsa River marks a significant development in bolstering connectivity and streamlining transportation between the two neighboring nations. The existing bridge proved to be insufficient to meet the growing demand for passage.

According to Anadolu Agency (AA), the bridge to be built over the river would link the two neighboring countries between the Ipsala border gate in Turkey and the Kipi border gate in Greece.

Restraint urged by heart doctors during Easter feasts

The Hellenic Cardiology Society is advising heart patients to remove the saltshaker from the table, avoid the skin and fat from the lamb or goat and the nibbling that precedes the meal in order to avoid unpleasant surprises on Easter Day.

More specifically, professor of cardiology and president of the Hellenic Cardiology Society Giorgos Kochiadakis recommends restraint, especially among those who have followed the 40-day fast and heart patients.

Garden goal net warning as West Yorkshire fox cubs get in a tangle

People with football goal nets in their gardens have been asked to pack them away following use after two fox cubs were found tangled in the netting.

The foxes were found in gardens in West Yorkshire with the nets wound tightly around their necks, but were eventually released unharmed, the RSPCA said.

May is always a peak month for netting entanglements as young animals make their initial forays, the charity said.

RSPCA officer Allesha Haddlesey said: "Football netting can be lethal."

The stricken female cubs were discovered in netting in gardens in Alwoodley, Leeds, and Wrose, Bradford, in recent weeks.

Unconfirmed and all but unbelievable (on a small Greek island): in the early hours of this morning in Levkas town eight residents aged between 19-26 years engaged in a dispute with a 23 y-o male resulting in serious injury by sharp object (such as a knife). Arrests made, 26 y-o charged with attempted murder, 23 y-o victim transferred to University General Hospital, Patra, for treatment.

Hospital boss at centre of deaths probe rakes in tens of thousands advising on safety
Dame Marianne Griffiths stood down from her role as chief executive of University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust in 2022

The former boss of a hospital at the centre of a police probe over patient deaths has been earning tens of thousands a month advising other NHS trusts.
Dame Marianne Griffiths stood down from her role as chief executive of University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust in 2022.

Sussex Police subsequently launched an investigation into more than 100 cases of alleged negligence in the general and neurosurgery departments during her tenure, 40 of which are believed to have involved patient deaths.

Whistleblowers have since claimed that Dame Marianne ignored safety warnings, with one claiming in a letter to her that “charges of serious misconduct include covering up the death of a patient, the creation of an unsafe environment for patients”.

Despite the brewing scandal, numerous NHS organisations have since paid significant sums to a company co-owned by the former nurse and her husband, John Dixon.
