A giant sex toy has been erected above a McDonald's in London.

The purple dildo was found above a branch of the fast-food chain in Brixton, south London, on Monday and is said to have been placed there in protest of the rising rent prices in the British capital.

Niall Trask, 27, told the Mirror Online: "I found it this morning. It's above McDonald's and Foxtons estate agents. I personally really like it - Brixton needs a hero." On why he thinks it has been placed there, he said: "I think it's a statement about gentrification, as it was above Foxtons. Foxtons is responsible for social cleansing, and the extortionate prices of flats in Brixton. The act of vandalism is obviously an attempt to decrease the value of properties in Brixton."

A fashion brand is making a clothing line for dead people.

Lyst are taking Halloween one step further by launching a collection specifically for the deceased called 'Over My Dead Body'. Katherine Ormerod, editorial director at Lyst, confirmed: "What we wear is such a huge reflection of who we are our personalities, that it's unsurprising that people now have a clear picture of what they want to be buried in. They say life's too short for boring clothes, we agreed and took it one step further. Death is too long to get your last outfit wrong."

The idea came about through customer research conducted by Lyst on how much people are willing to spend on their 'eternal outfit'. Twenty four per cent of people surveyed were prepared to pay over PS1,000 for a stylish outfit for the afterlife. A 'Try Before You Die' service is also available to customers keen to purchase their very last ensemble.

A man has been caught speeding at 129mph to ensure his McDonald's didn't go cold. Lee Rutherford was driving on the A189 in Northumberland, northeast England, when he was pulled over by police for exceeding the speed limit in a modified Renault Clio.

When questioned by cops as to why he was driving at such extreme speed, he said it was to still able to eat his burger and chips warm. However, he later admitted to providing a false statement and has since been found guilty of dangerous driving. As a result, Rutherford is to spend 20 weeks in prison and has been banned from driving. He will also have to take a new driving test and has been fined PS1,120.

According to the Metro newspaper, Rutherford's legal defendant, Kyle Patterson, told the court: "His driving at such a speed was because he'd been to McDonald's and he wanted his food to still be hot by the time he got home."
