With it being so big, I though it must have been on sale at another shop, but no, it turned out that it was our shop."

A man known to millions is no longer alive. The man, who'd been suffering from terminal veruccas, died noisily at his home in Bolton. A family friend said, "I was with him when he went. It was beautiful. We were playing Scrabble when all of a sudden he put down a seven letter word on a triple word score." A neighbour who was also in the house at the time said, "I challenged the word as I though it only had one 't' in it, but he insisted, so we had to look it up.
