Man Arrested Weilding Knife Near Buckingham Palace

May 25, 2017 Billy 0

A man wielding a knife has been arrested outside of Buckingham Palace moments before the Queen drove past on her way to St Paul’s Cathedral. Dramatic pictures show police wrestling the man to the ground after they responded to reports that he was brandishing a knife outside of the palace. The police have said that do not believe the incident to be terror-related.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan police said:

“Police arrested a man at the Mall, SW1, in possession of a knife. Patrolling officers detained and arrested the man at 10.40am today. No one was injured and a knife was recovered. The man has been taken to a central London police station. It is not believed to be terror-related.”

The incident comes two days after the attack in Manchester that raised the UK’s terror threat level to “critical”. The Changing of the Guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace has been cancelled today in the wake of the Manchester bombing as police are redeployed amid fears the attacker was part of a terror cell preparing more attacks.

The Manchester bombing was carried out by a lone suicide bomber, named as 22-year- Salam Abedi, at Manchester Arena at 10:30pm on Monday night. The current death toll stands at 22 with 59 injured. It is believed highly likely that Abedi did not act alone and received assistance from others. Investigators are hunting down his possible co-conspirators and three men have been arrested in connection with the suicide bombing.

Greater Manchester Police said the arrests were made in the south of the city, where a 23-year-old suspect was arrested in connection with Abedi’s bombing on Tuesday. “Three police warrants were executed in south Manchester in connection to the ongoing investigation,” a spokesperson said. They have continued to raid properties across Manchester.

Home Secretary Amber Rudd has confirmed that Abedi returned from Libya recently and that the nature of his attack does point to the probability that he received support. “It was more sophisticated than some of the horrific events that we have seen in the past or in other parts of Europe so people are reasonably wondering whether he did this on his own,” she told the BBC.

Abedi used an improvised bomb made from homemade explosives and nails packed into a suitcase. This is the same method that ISIS have used in their bombings at Brussels Airport and Molenbeek metro station last year. ISIS claimed a “soldier of the caliphate” carried out the attack in a statement threatening further atrocities against “crusaders”.

As a result the terror level has been raised to “critical” and another attack is thought to be imminent. Up to 3,800 soldiers have been deployed to patrol the UK in order to allow police officers to efficiently carry out the investigation. Monday’s attack has been deemed the UK’s worst since London’s 7/7 attacks in 2005, in which 56 people were killed, including the four perpetrators.

The police have launched an appeal for any information that may be important to their investigation. If you have any information about the attack you should call the anti-terror hotline on 0800 789321.

Harry Styles Stops Concert To Talk About The Manchester Attack

May 24, 2017 Billy 0

A suicide bomber, named as 22-year old Salam Abedi, killed 22 people and left 59 injured in an attack on Manchester Arena on Monday night. The attack happened as fans left the arena after an Ariana Grande concert on Monday night. There was an outpouring of shock and sorrow from musicians on Twitter. Among them was Harry Styles, a native Mancunian, who said: “I’m heartbroken over what happened tonight in Manchester.”

The former 1D member, who grew up in Holmes Chapel, near Manchester, addressed the bombing last night at a small show in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. He opened his set with a short speech about the attack, which he said had “left [him] with a hole in [his] heart.” He apologised to the crowd, saying that he had hoped tonight to celebrate with them but felt that after the events of the previous evening “tonight doesn’t feel like a night to celebrate.”

“Last night there was a tragedy in my hometown of Manchester. And I am left with a hole in my heart. I went to my first show in the arena, and I’ve had some of my best experiences in my life in Manchester,” Styles said. He then went on to urge his audience to be conscious of what they put out in to the world saying: “I ask you to please choose love every single day.

He concluded by apologising for not being able to do a full show that evening and instead said that the night’s performance would be a short acoustic set. He did however promise to come back to Mexico with a full show sometime in the future. A moment of silence was then held for the victims and their friends and family.

I Tried To Communicate With A Haunted Doll

Does she have a message from beyond the grave?

This is my haunted doll.

This is my haunted doll.

I bought her off eBay two years ago and she's been sitting on my desk at work ever since. Her name is Mary, according to the seller. One time I took her to a psychic to get a professional's opinion on whether or not she was haunted. (The psychic said yes, very haunted.)

But I decided to take matters into my own hands and see if I could communicate with Mary directly. I got several ghost communication tools–a ouija board, dowsing rods, and a pendulum. I got them all online. I didn't even have to go to an enchanted bookstore or anything.

Here is my attempt to communicate with Mary:

I had never used a Ouija board before. I was always too scared of opening a portal to the spirit world and making my environment super haunted. But I decided to see if I could use it to talk to Mary.

I ended up contacting a ghost named Thomas who was born in 1867 (according to him). Apparently ghosts can lie over the Ouija board. We had to end the session when we contacted a spirit who said it was born in the year “0” and then made several figure eights. Apparently that's quite evil.
