Humberside Police Appeal, Do you know this man’s identity?


Article Posted (27 January, 2014 @ 14:51:22)

Police need assistance to locate the friends and family of man in North East Lincolnshire

In around September 2013 a man was brought to the attention of police in North East Lincolnshire who appeared to be sleeping rough in the Cleethorpes area. Since that time police and a number of agencies have been working to try and establish an identity for the man, however this has proved unsuccessful.

The man, who has been fully co-operative with the police and the other agencies, gave his name as David THORPE, or a first name of Tony, and his date of birth as 05 October 1955. A thorough search of both police and NHS systems cannot find a man with those details. He states he thought he was from the Rotherham area, but was not sure and he could have connections in Blackpool. Continue reading Humberside Police Appeal, Do you know this man’s identity?

Our very own meet-up!

Note that this article contains words that some readers may find to show us to be stereotyping

On facebook, a new event which literally took facebook famous people by storm are ‘meet-ups’ where a huge group of facebookers meet. Usually, they all end up with Police being called and with eggs and flour being thrown at someone.

Approximately 1-in-3 young people are gay, lesbian or bi-sexual and half of the time, we don’t even know about it! There are so many reasons why young people would want to keep their sexuality quiet.

Inspired by the meet-ups hosted on facebook, some members of Scunthorpe LGBT are thinking of planning one but before we host one, we want to find out what you would think if we did host one.

We are inviting you and your friends to come along and meet new people, no matter what sexuality. We would like anybody…

REVIEW: Wicked the Musical (London)

Since July, 2011, I have been a massive fan of a show called Wicked which originally was based on the novel ‘The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West’ by Gregory Maguire. The hit, worldwide sensation opened in 2003 at the Gerswhin Theatre after grueling preview in San Francisco. I say ‘grueling’, but really they were horrific. After baring the unreleased audio recordings of the workshops and previews, I can say that Wicked almost certainly wouldn’t have worked without the changes that happened.

But after seeing the show 3 times, I have finally came to the conclusion, Wicked is the best show ever to have opened on Broadway and the West End.
Now, Wicked proudly announces it has two US national tours, one UK tour and a London production, an Australian tour and many other productions, too. But one country it hasn’t played is France. Hopefully we…

Gays Cause Floods or just Floods of Gays?

Gays cause floods? Yeh Yeh Ok Sorry…move on

I am quite sick of seeing the images and posts about it now, To be completely honest who cares if some idiot from UKip says thats the cause, if he wants to say or think that, fair play to him who cares.

We know UKip are hardly supportive of anything unnatural to their beliefs so leave them to it. I tell you one thing by all the stupid comments the members in that party make they don’t half get their selves some free sharing and publicity.

New Cinema Release: American Hustle

Backseat Mafia

Wow I’ll be completely honest in this review how this film won awards I have no idea, maybe I am just not the right demographic, it was slow, boring and quite uneventful even much so that I could barely stay awake. It was a struggle to say the least.

Don’t get me wrong some good actors in the movie but it took a very long time for anything remotely interesting to happen. It dragged out which I suppose maybe a good thing for some people as it does give a very long look back in time into character history together.

I would tell you what it was about but to fair, I don’t really know as it was so pointless but it’s a fictional film telling the story of a con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams)…
