A man has tried to force his way into the US airforce base – RAF Mildenhall – in Suffolk, Sky News has reported.

According to an MoD source, the man tried to drive his vehicle into the base in what has been described as a ‘security incident’, and now the area is on lockdown.

Alistair Bunkall, Sky’s Defence Correspondent, said: “I have been told by the Ministry of Defence in London that one individual is in custody with Suffolk Police.

“The base remains in lockdown. People have to stay in their offices; you turn off the lights; you lock the doors, you draw the curtains or blinds around the windows to make it look like no one is around.”

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Defence said: “We are aware of incident at the entry point of RAF Mildenhall, Suffolk police have primacy; all questions should be referred to them.”

24 Reasons Why You Should Live in Manchester At Least Once In Your Life

(Feature Cred: Rick Crisp)

We’ve got a pretty special city right here, y’know.

From the people to the places, from the food to the drinks, and from the cafés to the parks, we’re bursting with uniqueness and hope and promise that needs to be shared with the world.

Here’s why.

1. The vernacular

We have a peculiar way of expressing ourselves here ‘r kid.

Spending some time absorbing this strange language will leave you with an enhanced and, um, colourful vocab. Besides, the manc accent is the sexiest in the UK, don’t ya know.

2. It’s a VERY special place when the sun shines

Some places get sun all the time, and that’s great.

Here in Manchester, we don’t – but the upside of that is we really appreciate the sunny days. And the effect that this has on the mood and atmosphere within the city is palpable. What’s rare is wonderful.

3. You can walk EVERYWHERE

Manchester is a very compact city. This means that, unless you’re heading into the suburbs, you can get around primarily on foot.

This might sound like a negative point to some people, but trust us – the independence it gives you is just fantastic.

Manc

4. Matchdays at the Ethiad

Head along to a match in the company of 55,000 passionate supporters, and the experience is a truly unique one. 

5. We throw a serious party

Pride and other biggies may be celebrated all over the world – but nowhere does it quite like Manchester.

6. It has the best music

Another huge part of Manchester’s identity comes from its music. It has long history of producing world-class musicians, music labels and institutions. The Stone Roses, The Smiths, Happy Mondays, Joy Division/ New Order, Oasis and many more plied their trade in this city. There’ll be plenty more bands to come…

7. The nightlife is unparalleled

While London struggles to keep its music institutions – such as Fabric – open for entertainment,
Manchester’s clubbing scene is thriving. New clubs tend to pop up every few months as promoters
and musicians look to take advantage of the city’s young, outgoing population.

8. For example, The Warehouse Project

Perhaps the best marker of Manchester’s dominance in the UK nightlife scene is the Warehouse
Project – three months of events celebrating the best of electronic and underground music. Set up
off the back of Manchester’s infamous rave scene, the Warehouse Project is internationally
renowned and revellers flock from far and wide.

9. Pubs, pubs and more pubs

The city is graced with an amazing variety of pubs. From the smallest bar in Europe – The Circus
Tavern – to the bigger establishments and everything in between, Mancunians love their pubs.

10. … stocked by some great local breweries

Dozens of top class breweries are located in and around Greater Manchester bringing the city some
of the finest craft beers and ales in the country.

11. Northern Quarter (by day)

This area on the edge of the city centre is a hub of creative energy, home to cafés, restaurants,
vintage boutiques, record shops and art galleries – whether you’re looking for a bite to eat, a piece
of rare vintage clothing or an elusive vinyl record, it’s unlikely you’ll come away from the Northern
Quarter hungry or empty handed.

12. Northern Quarter (by night)

There are also plenty of popular bars, lounges and clubs packed close together in the NQ where you
drink, listen to prestigious bands and DJs, or even play table tennis at Twenty Twenty Two.

13. Shopping

As well as the niche shops of NQ Manchester also offers the Arndale Shopping Centre and the
gigantic Trafford Centre (which also features an indoor ski slope, golf and an aquarium) for all your
regular retail needs.

14. It’s big but it’s manageable

Manchester has a big city feel but without the vast distances – you can easily walk around the city
centre without wearing yourself down.

15. It’s a media hub

Media City UK at Salford Quays is home to the BBC and ITV as well as a host of smaller media outlets,
providing international media centre right on your doorstep.

16. The arts scene is thriving

Arts and theatre is up and coming in the city with renovated venues like the Whitworth Gallery
recently emerging in addition to well-established ones. In 2000, The Lowry at Salford Quays opened
its doors and features an art gallery, a theatre and holds workshops (there’s even a fancy hotel
adjoined to it).

17. Manchester is a leader in science

The University of Manchester developed Graphene – the world’s first 2D material made from
cleverly engineered carbon (pretty impressive eh?). There’s also the Museum of Science and
Industry offering all kinds of exhibitions that’re well worth checking out – it’s also free.

18. It’s multicultural (curry mile/Chinatown)

You’ll hear and see the vivid mixture of world cultures in Manchester, each complimenting the city
with their own different style.

19. There’s a unique and booming food scene

Manchester’s multicultural character manifests in the brilliant mix of restaurants and food shops
available on the famous Curry Mile and sizeable Chinatown. The city’s restaurant scene is growing all
the time with some great new menus arriving – the most recent of which has been the Mackie Mayor – it’s an exciting time for Manchester foodies.

20. You’re only a short trip from the countryside

The edge of the beautiful peak district is barely half an hour away (by train or car) and the rolling hills and villages of quaint old Cheshire are only just past Manchester airport.

21. Even closer to the airport

Manchester airport is super easy and cheap to get to from the city and offers a great variety of cheap flights. You can get to pretty much all countries in Europe directly and, if you fancy something further afield, their international scope is expanding fast with services to the US, Caribbean, Africa and Asia offered.

22. There’s a proud history

Manchester is regarded as the world’s first industrial city, whose hard-working and spirited population led global production in the 19th Century. This heritage has helped shape the city’s pride and personality.

23. The people

Mancunians are down to earth with a great sense of humour – quick, witty, and don’t miss a trick when it comes to taking the mickey. But they’re an equally friendly, helpful and all-round beautiful bunch.

Lady Christmas

24. It’s one of a kind

It’s difficult to describe but in Manchester you get a unique feeling amongst the people, the architecture, the music, the art, the sport and everything else. Being a bit gritty and rough round the edges brings its own kind of beauty and you definitely feel this is a place people are proud of and proud to call home.

The Crystal Maze In Manchester Gave the Best Response To A Bad TripAdvisor Review Ever

Article Featured Image

The Crystal Maze Experience in Manchester have a hilarious excuse for a bad review they recieved on TripAdvisor.

They had one unhappy customer…

Crystalmaze1

Upon entering the site, our reviewer was sternly told to exit the premises immediately. Understandably, she was left quite bewildered…

But the Crystal Maze’s response was pure GOLD.

Crystalmaze2

According to the Crystal Maze, there had been “an increased amount of members of the public swarming the site looking for Pokemon” that day.

The Pokemon hunters were, quote, “less than friendly.”

Well, we all know that searching for Pikachu can be a cut-throat business and those PokemonGo-ers can get nasty when they smell a Bulbasaur in close proximity.

Security had no choice but to call red-alert and batten down the hatches. Turning away innocent members of the public in an attempt to de-escalate a potentially calamitous situation.

It’s lucky you even got out alive Stephanie…
