Empty Deli


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know anything about a fire yesterday at the deli next to the Post Office?

I was wondering what had happened..i passed there yesterday and there was a fire engine, police van and a police car all with their lights flashing. There were police standing outside the Post Office door, more police inside the Post Office and a police woman standing outside the door which leads to the flat above the Post Office (which had been kicked in by the look of it)..I didn`t know what to think. It didn`t look like there had been a fire though.

My first thought when i saw all the police, was that there`d been a robbery :blink:

Not sure that it was in the deli but rather in the flat above the Post Office, which had quite clearly had it's door smashed in.

Drugs Bust at Bedlington Post Office Towers, Pensioners found to use pension day at local Post Office as cover to ply their trade in illegal drugs. Skunk farm found upstairs. Pensioners interviewed said it was for their own use to combat arthritis pain, also said that because of no pain they could make it to The Wharton for cheap non metered beer which was half the price of the breweries inflated prices. They were said to be supporting local businesses! But this was to no avail as The Wharton is now up for sale. They were all sentenced to three years at The Blue Bell for their crimes! :D :D

Hi All, "The empty deli" belongs to my dad. There was no fire. The flat next door have a major leek and the roof collapsed which also affected the upper floor of my dads place. As no one was in either properties the Police had to break down both doors to check for further damage.

So sorry, nothing exciting. just thought id set the story straight.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
