STOP PRESS…..

Today, a man was hit by a shopping trolley whilst bending down in the supermarket.

It caused a blockage in the aisle, resulting in widespread shopping rage in Tesco's, Horwich.

Police and an ambulance crew were called but the man was not seriously injured.

In other news, Council officials continued to neglect its own town, people and governance principles. But, due to lack of journalistic skills, we chose to go to the pub instead.

I think I would rather make up my own news and conclusions rather than read the rubbish generated by this drivel of a newspaper….
