in one of the first known camera-trap images of the species, a group of Cross River gorillas can be seen in the Mbe mountains of Nigeria

And they soon got their thrills
On Nigerian hills
When they captured the creatures on tape

The Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors (AGSI) said its members still did not know if policing pubs should be done under liquor licensing laws or health regulations

I’d like to enquire now if you
Are worried if this news is true?
There’s a virus about
And it seems there’s some doubt
That the Gardaí are sure what to do

Historian David Starkey has issued an apology for claiming slavery was not genocide because there are “so many damn blacks” still around

David Starkey, with egg on his face
Has admitted his thoughts about race
Were so far from wise
That he’ll apologise
And try to reduce his disgrace
