Matt Whitehurst cycles on Water

Boy, 16, cycles across 75ft deep lake in gravity-defying stunt… but won’t explain how he did it

A schoolboy has been snapped crossing Lake Buttermere – on a bike.

But 16-year-old Matt Whitehurst refuses to reveal how he made it across the 75ft-deep lake.

He carried out the miraculous stunt in the heart of the Lake District to raise money for victims of the 2009 floods in the area.


Backyard boat building – The Naida

Iain Tolhurst started collecting timber from the woods behind his house after the great storm of 1987. Then he began building a boat… 24 years later, and after 22,000 hours of work, the timber ketch was launched on the Thames

Most people surveyed the wreckage caused by the great storm of October 1987 and phoned their insurance company. Not Iain Tolhurst. He looked out on the fallen trees and realised it might be time to gather some cheap timber and get cracking on the boat he’d dreamed of building, single-handed, since he was a boy.

Range Rover Evoque

The new ‘baby’ RangeRover will descend upon on us at the Paris Motor Show at the end of September and will go on sale from next summer. Few technical details were released on Land Rover’s smallest, lightest and according to the company, most frugal vehicle in the brand’s lineup, but we do know that customers will have a choice of both a 4WD and a 2WD version.

But I say the Range Rover Evoque Coupe is way cooler

Hugh Laurie is the new face of L’Oreal 

He is known as grumpy Dr House throughout the world and it’s a part that has made him the highest paid TV star in an American drama series.

And today Hugh Laurie is cast in an unlikely new role, as the male face for L’Oreal Paris Men Expert products.

Hugh said: ‘At first I thought it was a mistake, but then I realised that L’Oreal wasn’t looking for models but for people with strong personalities, who are worth it…and who aren’t afraid to proclaim that using cosmetics can be a very masculine decision after all.’ – I’m sorry my man but that doesn’t sound very House-ish to me :))
