Porn disgrace

Two more workers have been sacked from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency at the end of a long-running porn investigation.

A total of 18 employees have now been dismissed. The shockingly explicit sexual images were so numerous they clogged up the agency's computer system.

The discovery sparked a major inquiry at the DVLA complex near Swansea, South Wales.

Coleen attack

Vandals are believed to have attacked the family home of Wayne Rooney's fiancee Coleen McLoughlin.

Graffiti was daubed on walls and the paths outside the home of Coleen's family, including sick references to the Munich air disaster and Liverpool FC. The soccer star and his girlfriend are currently on holiday in the US.

Car found

Police have found the stolen car of a man who suffered serious head injuries when he tried to stop a thief driving off with it.

Ken Hong, 38, a father of three, was thrown from the bonnet of his Honda Civic as it sped away. He had left the car's engine running outside his home in Streatham, south London on Wednesday.

Ascot arrests

Fifty-four people have been arrested at Royal Ascot so far, police said yesterday.

British Transport Police, monitoring the station at the Berkshire racecourse, arrested 12 people over the first four days of the event, including two boys armed with a hammer and a snooker ball in a sock.

Dress danger

A baby's dress sold by bargain chain TK Maxx was recalled last night after a child choked on a bead sewn on the garment.

The youngster is believed to have recovered. Shoppers can get a full refund if they return the garment which carries a label worded "Little Bitty".
