Thursday: REM, Live events & parking tickets

Top tribute band celebrate in the South West !
Top R.E.M. tribute band 'Stipe' will be celebrating their 200th performance in the South West this February.

Originally formed in 1996, it was January 2003 when the band set out to charm music fans with a new lineup and a new attitude. Three years later, and the band has been established as one of the best and most popular tributes on the circuit, looking and sounding like the original, the members being genuine fans as well as accomplished musicians.

Having just entered the fourth year of the current line-up, the 200th performance approaches.
"We always get a friendly crowd in the South West. It's a great place to play", said a band spokesman.

Had a parking ticket recently?
Parking poetry
A driver who challenged a parking ticket received a poem in reply from parking authorities.
Andrew Lynch, a shipping coordinator from Fleetwood, Lancashire, was given a £30 fine after his car overlapped the pavement.

He wrote to question the fine and the letter he received from Allerdale Borough Council in Keswick, Cumbria, included a poem.
