Animal activists want a roadside memorial sign to honour fish killed during a container truck crash in California.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals said it would remind drivers that fish value their lives and feel pain.
About 1,600lbs of saltwater bass died when the truck taking them to market was in a three-way crash.

‘IDIOT’ DRIVER

A woman caught on camera driving on a pavement to avoid a Cleveland school bus that was unloading children will have to stand at an intersection wearing a sign warning about idiots.

Court records show a Cleveland Municipal Court judge ordered the 32-year-old to stand at an intersection for two days next week. She will have to wear a sign saying: “Only an idiot drives on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus.”

The judge ordered her to wear the sign from 7.45am to 8.45am on both days.

CARRIAGE SALE

A 200-year-old carriage is to be sold off by a council to help plug a £90 million funding gap.

Newcastle City Council has announced the Lord Mayor’s official coach is being put up for sale as it deals with cuts to their budget. The council says the carriage, built in 1798 and insured for £80,000, is in perfect condition.
But due to a reduction in funding, the authority has been forced to “sell off the family silver” as it seeks to balance its books.
