Barbie Drug: What Is The ‘Holiday Tan In A Bottle’ About?

You’ve probably heard of a spray tan or sunbed, but have you ever heard about the spray tan that users are snorting up their noses?

SEAC announces Pay As You Dine to be reviewed

Private catering companies who provide PAYD food services to UK Armed Forces personnel are to be reviewed and will be put under the MoD’s spotlight.

It is thought that this review has been called for after the ever-increasing number of images and videos military personnel are posting online, showing some of the less than appealing food they are being served.
