Traffic lights dullness

East Anglia Daily Times: Lights fail on the A134 near Thetford

I've seen no report saying they've been fixed, so one can only assume that the poor people held up are still there.

Toilet dullness

Watford Observer: Watford-based pub chain has nice toilets

I'll put it out there: Pubs shouldn't have nice toilets. They should be a trough, a rubber johnny machine, a sink that doesn't have a hot tap and no roof. The way the Lord intended. No wonder the pub game is dying on its arse if they're offering nice toilets.
