A toddler stole $5,000 from her father to buy Zayn Malik.

The two-year-old, named Jules, secretly took money from her dad's safe in Washington and transported it in her lunch box in a bid to purchase the former One Direction singer. But the little one was caught out by her aunt Haya before she managed to part with the cash. The toddler's aunt took to her Twitter account last week to share the hilarious situation, writing: "When ur niece steals 5k from her dad's safe and takes it to daycare (sic)." In a video taken by the relative asking her niece about her plan, Jules screamed: " I want Zayn! I want to buy Zayn!' Although the young fan did not succeed in her plot to nab the Pillow Talk soloist, she did get a retweet from the hunky star. Zayn wrote: "This girl is so cute."

A dog has reportedly crashed a lorry into a tree.

A Golden Labrador was the prime suspect in the smash after it was found on its own in the cab of the vehicle at a petrol station in Minnesota, United States. Eyewitness David Stegora told The Free Press of Mankato: "I heard the tree snap and I thought somebody decided to turn around, but then it just kept going forward." A police spokesperson later confirmed the driver had abandoned his lorry and left it running in a nearby car park.

A man allegedly locked himself into the cockpit of a plane at London's Heathrow airport over the weekend.

Louis Pedro Verdasca dos Santos Costa, 38, was held in custody in London on Saturday before being charged with breaching security at the busy airport and illegally boarding a British Airways aircraft. According to Sky News, a source said: "It was a very difficult and complex situation and in the end the fire brigade had to be called to the plane and carried out a long and very protracted operation to get into the cockpit from outside. It is a terrifying situation when you think about it. Here is a man who not only has managed to go air-side at one of the world's busiest airports but he has successfully got to a Boeing 747 jet liner and found it open and was able to climb aboard. Then he has got on to the flight deck and barricaded himself in using the plane's own anti-terrorist equipment."

A dog rescued from a fire has become part of the team.

Jake the pup was only a few weeks old when he was left burning in a garden shed last September. And now South Carolina firefighter William Lindler - who saved the mutt who suffered 75 per cent burns - has adopted him and the canine has since been making regular visits to Hanahan Fire Department and comes along with William to help teach young children all about fire safety. Of Jake, William told Bored Panda: "I would like for them to know that no matter how bad it is, this little guy beat the odds being burned as bad as he was at four weeks old and he's still beautiful."
