Two men were hit by a scrambler bike after it mounted the pavement after speeding through Liverpool pulling wheelies and driving on the wrong side of the road.The bike rider – a 24-year-old man from Anfield who wasn’t wearing a helmet – suffered a fractured skull after hitting the men, who were standing at a bus stop near Aintree Racecourse this afternoon. One of the men, who was 56-years-old, suffered a cut to the head and was taken to hospital where he was treated for the injury. The other man, 54, didn’t need treatment.
The scrambler bike was being tracked by the police helicopter after first being spotted by officers speeding along Queens Drive towards the city , doing wheelies on the road and going through a number of red traffic lights. The bike raced through the city before driving against traffic on the wrong side of the road towards Aintree.
As the bike sped along Ormskirk Road it went through the traffic lights at the junction of Park Lane and mounted the pavement where it hit the two men. Witness Richard Fagan said: “We saw the police helicopter first and then scrambler bike coming down the middle of the road. He had a mask on with a skeleton on his face and shot through the lights. He was going really fast and didn’t care what he was doing.
“We had just walked past two men at the bus stop, who we think were at the races as they seemed to be counting money and then about 10 seconds later it happened. It could have been us who were hit. We left before the last race as my son wanted to go, so it was lucky most people were still inside the race course.”
David Platt’s revenge ended in a horrifying ordeal for one character in Coronation Street as she was engulfed in a fireball.Cafe worker Anna Windass – played by actress Debbie Rush – was left screaming as her legs burned in terrifying scenes which aired before the watershed. The awful incident came just hours after a deliriously happy Anna agreed to move in with boyfriend Kevin and take their relationship to the next level.
But all that was undone by David Platt’s revenge murder fantasy as he covered himself and his car in petrol to stop his family from stopping him. But in an awful twist, David’s daughter Lily slipped out of Fiz’s care and went wandering into the street just as David drove off. As he careered down the cobbles, lighter still in hand, his speed picked up and he spotted Lily too late to stop.
Desperately swerving to avoid his daughter, David flipped the car, and with Gary Windass running into the road to try to save Lily, he hit both of them and became trapped under the car. It took the collective effort of all the street’s residents to lift the car so Anna could reach in and drag Lily and Gary to safety. David looked on in horror at the destruction he’d caused but it had yet to end.After she managed to get Gary out just in time, the car exploded and Anna was knocked over. But as she got up, a fireball erupted and flew at her, engulfing her in flames. The cobbles favourite stood with her legs on fire screaming as the others tried to put the flames out and save her. Later, an unconscious Anna was rushed to hospital and the Platts closed ranks in order to protect David from the consequences.

The Blind Auditions have started for the new series of The Voice but things are going to be different this time around.In addition to a new TV station and new judges, it appears the format of the show will change slightly. Host Emma Willis has revealed a game-changing twist for the Blind Auditions. She’s revealed that only coaches who press their buttons will get to see the contestants.
“So only the people who press the button get to see who it is, so if no one turns, no one sees who sung,” she told Digital Spy. In previous seasons, all four coaches got the chance to meet and interact with a contestant, regardless of if they wanted them on their team.
This means there will be singers who won’t get to meet the superstar judges at all. The twist is currently used in versions of The Voice around the world but will be a series first for the UK. The latest series began filming in Manchester earlier this week.
Taking a seat in the big red chairs this season are Will.I.Am, Tom Jones and newcomers Jennifer Hudson and Gavin Rossdale. Emma Willis is returning as host while Cel Spellman will front a The Voice spin-off that will stream online and on social media.
An EastEnders legend might be leaving the soap – well, according to viewers.In tonight’s episode Dot Cotton had a run in with Kim Fox-Hubbard, into whom she recently crashed her car. Kim was furious that Dot refused to believe that it was her fault, ranting: “You call yourself a woman of God? Do me a favour!”

A father is suspected to turning his house into a ‘gas chamber’ to kill his wife and their severely autistic twins in a suspected murder-suicide.Neighbours knew high-flying engineer Fernando Manrique as a friendly face and loving father. But behind the facade – and chats to other parents down the local park – he is now believed been plotting in secret to kill his family in a macabre fashion. Police were yesterday working inside the family home he built in Davidson, Australia, 11 years ago – trying to dismantle a network of hidden pipes Manrique used to gas his family.
A police source described it as an “extensive, elaborate and well planned” operation. Detectives are also investigating the source of the poison they have discovered inside gas canisters found at the home in New South Wales. Maria Claudia Lutz, 43, was found dead in one room with their daughter Elissa, 11, while their son Martin, 10, was found in another room alone.
Both children were severely autistic – and the mother is said to have been fiercely protective of them. The body of 44-year-old Manrique was found alone in a separate room. The family’s German Shepherd dog was also found lying dead. Post-mortems are yet to take place but they are all thought to have inhaled the gas.
Police are understood to believe that Manrique acted alone but haven’t ruled out the possibility of a murder-suicide pact with his wife. Australian website News.com.au reported that the couple had been on the verge of a divorce before they died.

Moments before her death, Oksana had written a note to her friend – who has not been named – on the Russian social networking site Vkontakte, telling her how great she was and how special their friendship was.
