U is for unpleasant. Tram drivers in Osijek, Croatia, have been told not to let smelly people on board. Deputy transport director Josip Nadj explained the situation saying "It's unpleasant enough travelling in hot conditions, without being stuck next to someone who stinks."
V is for vegetation. A hapless golfer started a fire that raged over 12 acres and needed 150 firefighters to put it out. The man, who has not been names, swung his club, missed the ball and hit a stone, causing a spark that ignited nearby vegetation.
W is for whisky (OR, if you like, wee). Student James Gilpin collects his diabetic granny Patricia's wee to make whisky from it. He boils it, then mixes it with grain, malt and water. "It's very nice," says James.
X is for x-ray. A retired teacher thought he had cancer when an x-ray revealed a dark patch on his lung - but doctors found a small pea plant growing inside him. Doctors think Ron Sveden, 75, must have eaten a pea which went down the wrong way and sprouted in his lungs.
Y is for year. An Italian man has been arrested for allegedly keeping his dead aunt in a freezer for almost a year while he claimed her monthly pension.
Z is for zimmer-frame. A 75-year-old bank robber using a zimmer-frame was arrested by police 45 minutes after his heist while making his getaway. He was found still plodding his way down the same street the bank was in.
