Fury after Morrisons wouldn't sell couple meat pies before 9am

House fire started by squirrel disrupts funeral

People across the UK are suffering the horrors of naked neighbours, large potholes, and parking fines.

Local issues may not be worthy of national headlines, but they certainly make people very, very angry . . .
