  11. Snake rescued after being 'well and truly' stuck in wall

    Allen Cook

    BBC News

    A snake's had to be rescued after getting stuck in a stone wall on a street in Congleton.

    Snaked stuck in wall

    The RSPCA said it was "well and truly stuck" when its officers were called to Canal Street on Saturday, after a passerby spotted it.

    The three-foot-long corn snake was freed and then taken to be warmed up as "she was like ice".

    The charity says she's possibly an escaped pet and is appealing for the owner to come forward.

  12. Staff shortages cause train delays and cancellations

    BBC Hereford and Worcester

    More train drivers are to be recruited by West Midlands Trains as it tries to deal with ongoing disruption to services due to staff shortages.

    Trains delayed yesterday at Worcester

    Last night, commuters faced delays and cancellations from Worcester Foregate to Birmingham New Street and Hereford because of a shortage of train crew.

    This afternoon, the operator's admitted it has "significant" staff shortages on the Birmingham Snow Hill lines and "peak services will be heavily disrupted".

    Quote Message: We've historically relied on a certain number of drivers and conductors working additional hours and I have to say that the timetable and the poor delivery of the timetable has made that less attractive. The answer to this is to employ more drivers and conductors." from Jan Chaudhry-van der Velde West Midlands Trains Managing Director
