At a rally last night Berlusconi said: "I have to bring you some greetings, greetings from a man, what is his name, what is his name - just a minute it was someone with a...

    Southend-on-sea world record attempt

    it is nearly a year since my brother bob died suddenly. At his funeral a number of the train crew attended and laid out a St. Georges Flag with the floral tributes.
