British police closed a main road after discovering a 'severed hand' on the hard shoulder which turned out to be a costume prop.

Cleveland and Durham road police closed the major A19 near Middlesbrough after reports of the sliced-off body part on the side of the road, the Mirror Online reports.

While completing their investigation, detectives realised the hand was actually a rubber prop and quickly reopened the road.

Taking to Facebook, officers wrote: "In a nutshell, an eagle-eyed diligent member of the motoring public spotted a suspicious looking item in the central reservation.

"Officers have attended, and it has been found to be a realistic looking severed hand. No doubt comments will be forthcoming please!"

The Internet has gone mad over a simple trick to get extra sauce on a McFlurry.

McDonald's fan favourite dessert has, over the years, been flavoured by various chocolate bars currently being Cadbury's Crunchie, Oreo, Flake and Flake Raspberry. However, the sauce used on the ice cream has been somewhat limited.

However, in certain branches across the country, fans of the ice cream dessert can ask for extra sauce at a measly price of 20p, the Metro reports.

This discovery has sent Twitter users into a meltdown, with Tom Hyndman writing: "You can get an extra shot of topping in your Mcflurry for the low low price of 20p.

"Absolute game changer news this! (sic)"

Amy Ashmore also found this new trick to be the "best 20p you will have ever spent".

She wrote: "I recommend when buying a Mcflurry, always ask for extra sauce. It is the best 20p you will have ever spent #saucy (sic)"

A McDonald's spokesman said: "We offer guidance around pricing, but ultimately our franchisees decide on those which are set based on a number of factors.

"We and our franchisees pride ourselves on providing good-quality food at affordable prices up and down the country, and work to keep differences to a minimum."

A mother was left terrified after her Snapchat filter caught a ghost on her camera.

Donna Gill, 35, was filming her son, Jacob, using the mobile phone app at her home in near Leeds when a strange face appeared three times next to her three-year-old, the Mirror Online reports.

Snapchat filters find the face of the user and gives them a comedy effect, including various animals and voice-changers.

Donna who lives with husband Steve and has twin boys, Jacob and Charlie thinks the ghost might be who her twins named 'Gary'.

She told the website: "Gary has followed us from house to house, we think. It all started when me and my husband lived in Selby four years ago and we used to hear bangs in the night. The scariest one was a bang on the bedside table which woke us both up. I used to think I imagined it. And before that there was rustling noises and things, but then all of a sudden there was this bang. I did look into it and read things that said if you get a ghost and you're not listening you'll get these bang noises. So anyway, we kind of laughed about it."

Donna said 'Gary' has been haunting the family for years.
