Miniature Bicycle - Kidderminster, Worcestershire
Alf Tabb, 83, of Kidderminster, rides his smallest bicycle, which is only 5-and-a-half inches high. He offers 5 to anyone who can ride it, but he has beaten all challengers so far. For 25 years he delivered copes of the London Evening News by bicycle, before moving to Worcestershire to start a cycle business.

The housing problem for Tim Pennefather and Julie hayes, who are to be married on August 29th, was solved for a day by the intervention of a building society manager. When he heard of their plight - they have been 'gazumped' five times so far - that Tim would not have a 'threshold' to carry Julie over on their big day, he arranged the car for just a day. The brickwork and curtains almost make up for the fact that the couple have had so little success in house hunting.Their searches have been centred on the Surrey area where they work but there is still no roof and the wedding date looms at Julie's home town of Farnley Tyas, near Huddersfield.
