People are very good at losing things, especially on public transport in London. In 2016 35 sex toys were left on the tube, which just goes to show much much random stuff people carry around with them as they go from place to place.

Despite all the people who jumped on the bandwagon after England started doing well in the World Cup, our national team did not win the tournament.

So lots of things are being done to celebrate, including adding the team to the Miniland area of Legoland Windsor. Read More >>
