Brides and grooms are spending a staggering PS300 on their bachelor and bachelorette parties.

New research - conducted by LateRooms.com - has found that soon-to-be wed couples, their best men and maid of honours are pushing the boat out by splashing the cash on lavish night outs in order to mark the end of single life.

The study, which was carried out by the hotel reservation website to celebrate the start of peak wedding season, found that men spend an average of PS346.19 on their stag dos, while the hens are willing to cough up PS286.96.

However, six per cent of stags have admitted they're willing to spend a jaw-dropping PS1,000 on their mate's final blow out.

The investigation found that the adrenaline-pumped males prefer to hop on a plane to celebrate their wedding antics, while women are more inclined to settle for a spa weekend.

LateRooms.com spokeswoman, Andrea Tarpey, said: "Wedding bookings for hotel rooms will surge this weekend as invitations for popular June and July dates hit people's letterboxes. As well as the big day itself there are the all-important stag and hen parties to plan."

A new app has been created that allows users to delete the text messages they've sent before the recipient reads them.

Protect Your Privates - a mobile phone software - allows people to retrieve the embarrassing messages they've sent in the heat of the moment or accidentally to the wrong person before the innocent receiver even locks eyes on them.

The free app, which is available to download on iOS, doesn't just banish the message from the phone, but it also erases the cringe-worthy text from the server completely.

But the free app doesn't just stop at erasing messages, as it also has a built-in function that prevents people from taking screengrabs, according to the Daily Mirror newspaper.

A man has taken pizza delivery to a whole new level by having his Italian feast delivered to his train.

DJ Artwork did just that on his five-hour journey from Sheffield to Glasgow by getting his meal delivered to the platform just as the train pulled into the platform.

In a series of tweets, he revealed: "What idiot would get on board a five hour train journey without checking if it has a bar car and without getting any food or drink before? Would anyone in the train line between Glasgow and Sheffield go to the shop for me and get me a few bits and meet me on a platform? I'm going to try and get a pizza delivered to a train as it pulls in to a station. Bit of research needed... So the whole carriage is behind me. They are all excited. If they think they are getting one slice they can f.... off!! (sic)"

A man was dragged from his tent by a crocodile.

The 19-year-old male is recovering in hospital after the incident, which took place on Monday in Australia's Northern Territory.

He was with family on a fishing trip, and according to Guardian Australia, he had pitched a tent 15 metres from the water's edge and was woken at 4:30 a.m. by the beastly reptile who pulled him by his right foot.

The NT health department believes the man was asleep at the time of the attack.

Describing the young man as very lucky, a spokesperson said: "He somehow or other managed to kick it away with his other foot."
