Prince Andrew would 'shout and scream' if his teddy bear collection was knocked out of place by palace maids, a former royalty protection officer has claimed. Former bodyguard Paul Page made the revelation during an interview with Ranvir Singh for the upcoming ITV documentary, Ghislaine, Prince Andrew and the Paedophile. The former constable, who left the Metropolitan Police in 2007, was part of the elite Royal Protection Squad and had access to the Duke of York's private residence. He claimed that Andrew had a bed with '50 or 60' stuffed toys and maids were given a laminated picture so each bear could carefully be put back in its original position.

The accused Times Square subway psycho apparently wanted to make sure he killed his victim—waiting to push her onto the tracks just as the train was entering the station, an eyewitness told The Post on Sunday. Maria Coste-Webber said she was standing just feet away when homeless ex-con Simon Martial showed no emotion as he shoved tragic victim Michelle Alyssa Go, 40, in front of the train Saturday. “[Go] was about a foot and a half away from the end of the platform waiting for the train, and he was about 3 feet behind her,” Coste-Webber recalled. “He pushed her at the same time the train

Just hours before an apparently innocent woman was pushed onto the subway tracks by a convicted felon, a group of protesters at a nearby Olive Garden were arrested for refusing to show proof of a COVID vaccine. Videos posted to social media showed a group of about half a dozen protesters staging a sit-in at the Times Square Olive Garden on Friday night to protest New York City's vaccine mandate for indoor dining. The protesters reportedly remained inside the Olive Garden for two hours and refused to leave, which prompted the restaurant—which usually stays open until midnight—to close early, according to FOX News.

The family of the British terrorist who was shot dead after taking four people hostage inside a Texas synagogue have tonight paid tribute to him and admitted to 'liasing' with the shooter during his 10-hour stand-off with police.

Germany is now ‘dramatically behind’ its CO2 emissions target shortly after it abandoned half of its remaining nuclear plants, calling the tech ‘dangerous’. Germany’s Climate Minister, Robert Habeck has said that Germany is “dramatically behind” its emissions targets for 2030, just weeks after the country abandoned half of its remaining nuclear power plants. Habeck now says that the country has a “gigantic task” ahead should it still wish to achieve its goal of making itself climate neutral. According to a report by Euronews, a sudden surge in the country’s emissions is in part a result of the nation’s decision to abandon nuclear power by the end of 2022.

Election officials in the Texas county that includes the state capital, Austin, have rejected about half of applications for mail-in ballots, following new voting restrictions brought in by Republicans. The voter identification rules have led to the rejection of about half of the 700 mail-in ballots requested in Travis county for primary elections in March, according to the county’s clerk. The denied ballots in Travis county follow a similar trend across Texas, with officials in Harris county, which includes the city of Houston, and Bexar county, which includes San Antonio, also turning down a substantial number of mail-in ballot applications.
2021 was a record year for homicides in Portland replies

Portland, Ore.—In 2021 Portland, Oregon, recorded 90 homicides amid a surge in gun violence, shattering the city's previous high of 66 set more than three decades ago. The number of homicides in Portland surpassed more populous cities including San Francisco and Boston—and were more than double the number of slayings last year in its larger Pacific Northwest neighbor Seattle. City police and officials say last year's increase—which disproportionally impacted Portland's Black community—was fueled by gang-related arguments, drug deals gone array and disputes among people living on the streets and exacerbated by the pandemic, economic hardships and mental health crises.

Though it's unclear if another theft occurred Saturday, the train company says it has asked the L.A. County District's

President Biden on Friday announced that his administration will distribute $27 billion to repair or replace 15,000 bridges across the country. The funds will be doled out as part of the bipartisan infrastructure spending Mr. Biden signed into law in November. He said the funds were the largest investment in our nation’s bridges since the creation of the Interstate Highway System in the 1950s. “This is an investment that is going to help connect entire towns and regions to new opportunities,” Mr. Biden said at the White House “With this investment, we’re sending a message to those communities and the people who call them home: You matter.”

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand strolled into an upstate eatery maskless, in violation of a statewide mandate, according to video footage posted by the irate restaurateur. John La Posta, manager of the Innovo gastropub in Latham, said Gillibrand blew past a large sign reading “masks required to enter,” and that his own staff didn’t even have time to ask her to put one on as she quickly brushed past them toward the tables.(Snip)In December fellow Dem Gov. Hochul announced that indoor masking would be required “in all indoor public places unless businesses or venues implement a vaccine requirement.” Noncompliance can bring a $1,000 fine.
