A traveller was left gobsmacked when he received his vegetarian in-flight meal.

Steve Hogarty asked for the meat-free option when he was jetting across the globe, but instead of being offered a hot meal or a sandwich, the passenger was given an apple and a pear to tuck into with a knife and fork.

Steve took to Twitter to share the news of his unsatisfactory meal.

He tweeted: "The vegetarian meal on this flight is an apple and a pear wrapped in cling film, served with a knife and fork (sic)."

Following his post Steve received a reply from the Colombian airline named Avianca he was travelling with, who wanted to "investigate" the matter further.

They wrote: "Service is our priority, please let us know your flight date/number and also your contact information via DM.

"This is not our standard so we surely will investigate as soon as possible (sic)."

A student accidentally reversed their car on top of another parked vehicle.

A pupil at Falmouth University, Cornwall, was trying to squeeze into the tight space on the drive, but once the driver made it into the space instead of braking they accelerated while still in reverse, which resulted in the four-wheeled automobile ending up on the bonnet of the Saab behind.

And after the mishap a recovery team was called out to dislodge the two cars, the Metro newspaper has reported.

A teenager has been forced to change the details on her driving licence after adding an inappropriate address.

Eve Paterson, 18, was shocked when the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) sent the form of ID back to her after she passed her driving test.

But it has transpired that the reason the licence was returned to her was because she listed her "dad's house" as her address.

The teenager took to social media to share her blunder.

Alongside a picture of the card was shared on her Twitter page, which was captioned: "I've had to update my licence and accidentally wrote 'My dad's house' on it. Why!!! So !!! Stupid!!!! (sic)"

The tweet has since gone viral with more than 1,100 retweets and nearly 7,500 likes.

A man has raised money to pay for families in Malawi to have toilets, after experiencing his own bathroom blunder earlier this year.

Liam Smyth caused a stir earlier this year when his Tinder date got stuck in a window after she tried to dispose of her poop because it would not flush down the toilet.

The incident saw firefighters called to the site to rescue the female, but left Liam with a hefty bill to replace the glass, which he was able to pay for after setting up a GoFundMe page.

And the 24-year-old student has taken his fund raising skills further as he has raised an extra PS2,500, which he has donated to Toilet Twinning an organisation that helps build toilets for people living in poverty in developing countries and the Fire Fighters Charity.

And the huge sum of money has helped to build 20 toilets in poverty stricken places.

Speaking about his latest venture to the Scottish Daily Records, Liam said: "It was a crazy thing to happen, but it's amazing to have had such an impact in the developing world as a result.

"I was expecting to raise a few hundred quid for the window, and maybe get an interview on the local radio. I was never expecting this to go as far as it did."
