    I hope this is the right place to post this - sorry mods if I've got it wrong.
    I know we have a few UK members here who have been posting in the April Jones thread, so I thought this may be of interest.

    Yesterday afternoon a van driver went on a hit and run spree in Cardiff, Wales. Eye-witnesses report that he deliberately aimed his van at pedestrians and mowed them down at 5 different locations in the city.

    The A&E department at the University Hospital of Wales was closed to new admissions for several hours to deal with the incident. 12 injured and one dead per this morning's reports.

    A 31 year old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder - as yet, police haven't released his name or any more details.

    It's just a miracle that there were no more fatalities :(

    Only just seen this latest story, but the combination of rumour and the internet is proving to be a dangerous thing.
    Sad to see that once again an innocent person was named as the culprit on social media sites and had his life and that of his family put at risk.
