UK bakery company Greggs tweeted the news on Wednesday that it had set up VIP chat on the popular messaging app.

Greggs claimed it had 250 spaces on the chat for fans of their limited-edition Festive Bake. The tweet read: "WhatsApp, guys? We've got a VIP group for 250 Festive Bake lovers! WhatsApp your name to 07759325409 to get involved and maybe win a prize! (sic)"

The company told Mirror Online: "It's for Greggs fans. We're going to start sharing stuff soon, such as exclusive content, competitions, and giveaways."

And the bakery says it set up the chat group because people ask them about the Christmas pastry "as early as July, so we thought we'd set up a space for the most dedicated Festive Bake fans to enjoy their favourite thing."

Police in China are punishing drivers who dazzle other road users by switching on their car's full-beam headlights - by giving them a taste of their own medicine.

Offenders are now being forced to stare into the full glare of the headlights for a full minute and are also being handed a fine of 300 yuan (PS36). Posting on their official Weibo account, police in the city of Shenzhen wrote: "Tonight we are carrying out punishments using a high beam. Now you can experience for yourself just how harmful the full-beam headlights are and how much light pollution they cause." After enduring the punishment, one driver said he would "never come" to the city again.

Police say the habit is dangerous because the lights can cause road blindness, which may cause serious accidents.
