Capital offence rectified oop North - Diary - News - London Evening Standard
Foreign Secretary William Hague will be among those delighted to hear that after years of ridicule, councillors in Northallerton — county town of North Yorkshire and home to his constituency office — are to alter the town’s five entrance signs after complaints from business leaders, tourists and residents that they spelt the town’s name with a lower case “n”.

The “northallerton” signs were installed four years ago to give the town a dynamic modern image but instead made it a laughing stock. The council has spent a mere £65 changing the signs by sticking capital Ns over the lower case letters. That’s Progress, that is.

BBC News - 'Batman' brings in suspect to Bradford police
A man dressed as the caped crusader Batman has handed over a wanted man at a Bradford police station before disappearing into the night.

Police said the costumed crime-fighter marched the 27-year-old man into Trafalgar House Police Station in the early hours of 25 February.

The man was charged with handling stolen goods and fraud offences.

Police said: "The person who brought the man in was dressed in a full Batman outfit. His identity remains unknown."

The suspect will appear before Bradford magistrates on Friday, police said.

Design Indaba – Day 1 Speaker Insights | Word on the street
Almost exactly what I said - "Ben introduced his talk with Design Principles that outline all users needs and not the needs of the Government, as he is the Head of Design for the Government Digital Services unit that operates in the UK. They have taken multiple webpages and have consolidated them all into one single point of contact. He contrasted between graphic design, typography as well as user journey and experience. The process of having the problem, ‘A’ and getting to the solution, ‘B’ was described as a transitional design that integrates all forms of communication and messaging that adds more value not only to the user but to the brand as well. Thus, transforming a collection of messaging into an amalgamated collective."
