IT’s a Vespa scooter with a difference. Rob Cheshire, from Macclesfield in the UK, has made the world’s first scooter -made entirely out of matches. The five foot long scooter took nine months to contruct. Fanatic Rob, 48, used more than 100,000 matches and 17 litres of glue to put together his dream machine.

AS Comet the golden retriever looks at his owner Nina Hallett and wags his tail, it seems like a miracle that he is still alive. In January 2004 Comet became desperately ill with lymphoma, a cancer of the lymph tissue, and it seemed like there was no hope to save him. But amazingly Comet is now the worlds first surviving dog with lymphoma to have a lifesaving stem cell transplant using bone marrow cells from a donor dog. Now after a long steady recovery, he is finally cured, and a check up last month gave him the all clear. It is a case which has staggered experts worldwide - as lymphoma is always fatal in dogs, and they usually only live for a year around diagnosis. It is now three years since Comet was diagnosed, and he is now cancer free.

THIS is the amazing giraffe - who has to eat 15 indigestion tablets a day to help him survive. Beau the giraffe has a daily diet of 15 Tums - after he was diagnosed with the fatal condition Giraffe Wasting Syndrome. The tablets, combined with a special diet of 40 to 50 Ib’s daily of specially imported roots that Beau eats, has saved his life. And it makes him the zoo’s most expensive animal - as it costs more than £25,000 a year to feed him. A spokeswoman for Franklin Park Zoo, Boston, said: ‘Beau was so ill. He was literally wasting away. But now he has made a remarkable improvement, although we will have to watch his condition for the rest of his life.’ The person who came to Beau’s aid, when he first lay dangerously ill is eleven year old Autumn Faucher. At 16 feet high, Beau towers over his four foot friend, but it is a remarkable relationship as the giraffe allows her to stroke his neck and give him a cuddle.

I couldn’t believe what the doctor was saying. My ovary was gangrenous and black - it had to come out. But I was 23 weeks pregnant with twins - how could they possibly survive me having such an operation. But the terrible thing was that having the twins had caused my ovary to twist and die. It had been caused by the stress of pregnancy. I’d wanted my babies so much - now they were putting my life in danger. And I had to put their lives in danger in return - to save us all. ( hill )

WHEN keen young angler Josh Boyle felt a pull on his rod, he thought he had landed his usual roach or rudd. The 14 year old schoolboy had been fishing since the age of two and regularly fished at a local beauty spot near his home in Stockport, Greater Manchester , UK . But nothing prepared Josh for what he found on the end of his fishing rod - a 3Ib red bellied South American piranha. Despite the shock, he managed to reel in his terrifying catch, and held in in a towel, to protect his fingers from the lethal razor sharp teeth. ( boyle )

But amazingly, Marnie is blind and autistic - and she has been hailed as one of the top 20 visually impaired musicians in the country. ( music , piano )
