A ROMANIAN mayor sent to prison for bribery has been honoured by his city.

Mircia Gutau was imprisoned in January over a €50,000 bribe. But councillors in Ramnicu Valcea have now named him a „citizen of honour”.

BALTIC, the Polish dog rescued from an ice sheet, is being bombarded with emails.

Ewa Baradziej-Krzyzankowska, his de facto spokeswoman, said a Facebook page was being set up in response to the demand.

LAUREN Laverne apologised to listeners after indie band Freelance Whales swore live on air during her daytime BBC 6 radio show.

One member of the New-York based group used the phrase „f****** awesome”.

THE softer side of Michael Winner will be seen by TV viewers in a new series.

In ‘Dining Stars’, the former director was reduced to tears by the story of a woman whose young son has a heart condition and whose daughter has cerebral palsy.

THE sporting rivalry between Sebastian Coe and Steve Ovett is to be brought to life on film.

The British athletes dominated middle-distance running three decades ago and now the BBC is to develop a movie version of their fight for supremacy.

WALES rugby player Andy Powell is committed to getting back in the national side after being dropped for alleged drink-driving, his agent said.

Powell (28) was arrested on Sunday at a service station.

THE ‘New York Times’ is looking into accusations that one of its reporters, Zachery Kouwe, plagiarised from news organisations, including the ‘Wall Street Journal’.

The paper said he „appears to have improperly appropriated wording”.
