Charlie Watts: Mick Jagger and Keith Richards pay tribute to Rolling Stones bandmate

Sir Mick Jagger and Keith Richards have paid tribute to their bandmate Charlie Watts, following the death of the Rolling Stones drummer.

Watts died aged 80 in a London hospital on Tuesday, the band's publicist said.

He had been a member of the Stones since January 1963, when he joined Sir Mick, Keith Richards and Brian Jones in their fledgling group.

Kef coast guard escorted the (presumably Greek flagged) AGIA KYRIAKI into Argostoli port yesterday morning after it developed mechanical failure southwest of the island. All 24 passengers uninjured and no pollution observed, boat confined to port until repaired and re-classified as seaworthy.

His comments follow similar warnings from the boss of supermarket Co-op, Steve Murrells, who has said that “the shortages are at the worse level than at any time I have seen”.

Food outlet Greggs is also dealing with product shortages, it was revealed today. The eatery is suffering shortages of chicken-based products like its popular chicken bake.

Someone had to be unloaded to make room for the car  ;)

You think the Toyota might be fitted with revolving number plates, ejector seat and machine guns?

Apparently the Americans left loads of military equipment behind for the Taliban to use.
