Italy's Culture Minister Francesco Rutelli wants a new anti-vandalism law after a man threw a bucket of red dye into the Trevi fountain in Rome.

It is incredible that the man wasn't caught red-handed.

A Las Vegas warehouse belonging to magician David Copperfield has been raided by FBI agents. They took a computer hard drive, a digital camera memory chip and $2 million (£937,000) in cash.

We'll all be watching with interest to see just how he escapes from this one.

British actress Deborah Kerr, known to millions for her roles in The King And I, Black Narcissus and From Here To Eternity, has died at the age of 86.

The English Rose will never be forgotten.

The world's tiniest radio is a step closer to reality. US scientists have unveiled a detector thousands of times smaller than the diameter of a human hair that can translate radio waves into sound.

LOST: World's tiniest radio. If found, please contact the University of California.

Italy's advertising watchdog has banned an ad campaign for a fashion label showing a naked anorexic woman, saying it breached its code of conduct. The image "commercially exploited" the illness, the advertising body said.

First red dye and now naked anorexic women – Italy is certainly pushing the boundaries this month.

Defending champions England will aim to put the seal on a miraculous recovery with victory over South Africa in the World Cup final in Paris today. England have had a torrid time since 2003 but have ripped up the form book to reach their second final in a row.

My completely unbiased opinion says, "Come on, England!"

Doctors have called for compulsory labelling of alcohol in a bid to help tackle binge drinking. British Medical Association Scotland leaders want more consistent information on the alcohol content and the number of units on drink labels.

The label, hmmm… isn't that what we all peel off when out drinking?

A New Zealand brewery is reportedly offering a lifetime supply of beer for the return of a stolen laptop. Local media said the laptop was stolen from the Croucher Brewing Company in the central North Island city of Rotorua earlier this week.

For that offer I would buy him a new laptop.

Lewis Hamilton believes securing pole position is not essential as he prepares for Saturday's qualifying session at the Brazilian Grand Prix. The Briton, aiming to become the first driver to win the title in his debut season, was fastest in Friday practice.

England today and an Englishman tomorrow. Not biased at all!

Harry Potter fans, the rumours are true: Albus Dumbledore, master wizard and Headmaster of Hogwarts, is gay. J.K. Rowling, author of the mega-selling fantasy series that ended last summer, outed the beloved character Friday night while appearing before a full house at Carnegie Hall.

I wonder if he ever let Harry play with his wand…

A movie based on the life of tragic Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain is being planned by Hollywood studio Universal, it was reported on Friday.

Ving Rhames is lined up to play Cobain.

Perhaps they should have dyed the Trevi fountain orange in honour of Ovi!

The Fountain of Trevi turned red? Surely a sign that another powerful spell has been unleashed. Which high priests have hung themselves today? Hint: don’t search for clues in Rome, search in Lisbon…
