This weeks Strange but True!

Man arrested for sex attacks on sheep!

Apparently London police arrested a man on Friday on suspicion of carrying out a series of sex attacks on sheep.

The 27-year-old man was held at his home in Dulwich, south London, on suspicion of bestiality with sheep. He was also wanted in connection with the possession of drugs with intent to supply. (That probably explains a lot!) Detectives said the arrest followed allegations made to them in May and June.

"Two male joggers said they had observed a man molesting the sheep in a field at Botany Bay Lane, Chislehurst," police said in a statement. "A similar incident was reported to police by a stables employee in the area."

Media reports said the man had been barred from visiting farmland while officers carried out their investigation.

Man dies urinating on live rail

In another strange but true story this week a man was killed at a busy railway station when he reportedly urinated on the track.

British Transport Police confirmed the 41-year-old was electrocuted at Vauxhall station in south London after he walked on to the track from Platform 1. According to reports, the Polish tourist went to find somewhere discreet to go to the toilet but his urine splashed on to the live rail. He was said to be a married teacher who was visiting the UK to improve his English. According to the BTP up to 60 people are killed on live rails every year.
