A singer has died on stage in Indonesia after being bitten by a cobra.

The 29-year-old pop artist, Irma Bule, was dancing on stage in West Java, Indonesia, when she accidentally stepped on one of the snakes she uses in her act and it bit her. Irma continued her performance but died 45 minutes later. The animal is believed to have been de-fanged but it was still able to inject its venom into her when it bit her on the thigh. The singer was reportedly offered an antidote, but is said to have refused it and carried on performing after a snake handler quickly pulled the animal away.

Despite thinking she would be fine, the poison had entered her system and she started vomiting and having seizures in front of a shocked crowd. After collapsing on stage Irma was taken to hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

A Virtual Reality sex suit has sold out. The piece of tech is designed to work with a game called 'Sexy Beach', which involves anime girls with massive boobs which the gamer controls.

The VR tech uses a Oculus Rift and a device called a Tenga to stimulate the art of love-making. And if that wasn't enough, it also has a sensor that makes the gamer feel as though they are being touched and comes with fake boobs to play with. The VR suit was priced at $400 but was so in-demand it's now sold out.

A gang of biscuit thieves have been jailed for swiping PS20,000 worth of Jammie Dodgers.

The beloved British treats filled with strawberry conserve proved too tempting for Paul Price, 35, Keiron Price, 28, Aaron Walsh, 25, Stephen Burrows, 36, and Anthony Edgerton, 35, who all pleaded guilty to getting away with the huge haul and have received sentences ranging from 12 to 44 months. Speaking of the heist in South Wales, during which the five convicts tricked a security guard by pretending to be DHL deliverymen, Judge Jonathon Furness QC said: "There was a good quantity of biscuits taken. A convoy of vehicles gained entry to Burtons biscuit factory. There was a significant amount of planning with a series of thefts involving the cloning of number plates so it would not be known these vehicles were stolen."

Two of the five men, Price and Edgerton, also pleaded guilty to stealing a trailer full of nearly 2,000 cases of Carling worth more than PS43,000. Unable to dodge the law, Edgerton told the judge after sentencing: "Sweet, thanks your honour, that'll be lovely."
