<b>Wednesday 5 November:</b> Obama makes history, police make reptile discovery and underwear thief makes no sense at all

Published on November 5th 2008.


BARACK OBAMA has become the first African-American President of the United States of America. The win is an astonishing achievement in a country where only 40-years-ago, African Americans were not allowed to vote. Britain's three main political party leaders have all backed President Obama today. Prime Minister Gordon Brown said: “In these difficult times, people everywhere are crying out for change. Barack Obama is the first of a new generation of leaders who will deliver it - he has my wholehearted congratulations."

REPTILES, JEWELLERY AND DRUGS have been found by police who raided two houses in Oldham. Stolen jewellery and drugs were found to be up to the value of around £5,000 in the properties and police also remarkably discovered eight lizards and one boa constrictor at one of the houses on Tuesday.

AN AERIAL-FITTER who rifled through his customer's underwear has been sentenced to 12 months imprisonment. Steven Atkinson from Northern Moor traded under the name Geminii. He entered the women's homes as a bona fide workman and, once inside, would take secret pictures of the victims using his mobile phone. When the woman left the room he would often steal knickers or bras or take a photo of his penis inside the drawer.

AHEAD of tonight's clash with Celtic, Sir Alex Ferguson is confident his team are on top form. He told manutd.com: “The team are doing very well and we hope we can continue that on Wednesday night. We want to qualify so I’ll be picking a team to win.”
