Cadbury has been delivering trucks full of festive joy to people across Britain.

The brand unveiled a one-of-a-kind Christmas grotto made entirely out of the chocolate behind the first door of its 24-day advent calendar of trucks in Liverpool earlier this week. The magical display was created out of 3,250 Cadbury chocolate bars and 6150 Cadbury Roses and took a team of expert food artists 200 hours to complete. The second truck then delivered a giant festive mistletoe to the people of Bath.

The 'Phuc Dat Bich' Facebook account was a hoax.

The man behind the account with the unusual name has now revealed that the joke was on the media - and not him. He told the Guardian newspaper: "What started as a joke between friends became a prank that made a fool out of the media and brought out the best in the people who reached out to me. It didn't bring out the anger and darkness that we often see on the Internet, but it brought a levity and humanity in a time we need it most.

A boy has well and truly proved the saying "finders keepers".

The unnamed youngster was walking along the River Danube in Austria on Saturday when he came across a wad of cash notes amounting to PS71,000. The lucky chap tried to fish the floating notes out of the river but passersby assumed he was trying to kill himself and alerted police, who came to his rescue, according to Oesterreich newspaper. A police spokesperson commented: "The boy said he wanted to bring it to the police, but the question is whether the police found it or the boy."

A diamond "spider" ring worn by former pop star Samantha Mumba is being auctioned with prices starting from PS1.

It's expected to sell for PS200,000 but the glitzy piece of jewellery with a star-studded history is being sold through online auction house Catawiki, and with the opening price so low, anyone can join in the bidding. The unusual rock was first debuted by the Irish pop princess at the Spiderman II premiere over a decade ago. It weighs 103.37 grams and includes 20.37 carat diamonds, 18 carat white gold and a unique 8-sided WebCut diamond. 'The Spider Ring' will be available to bid on up until December 14 on catawiki.co.uk
