Stewardess accused of stealing booze
A military explosives unit has deactivated a Second World War-era shell found by contractors beneath a school playground in the English city of Bath. The Explosive Ordinance Disposal unit removed the device late on Friday and carried out a controlled explosion at a nearby quarry. Thousands of people had been evacuated from homes and businesses after the 225kg shell was discovered on a disused playground at the Royal High School Bath on Thursday. Germany’s Luftwaffe bombed Britain heavily during the war, and undetonated explosives are occasionally found during construction work. Bath, known for its Georgian architecture, was targeted in the Bath Blitz over several days in April 1942. Some 400 people were killed and 19,000 buildings damaged. Officials said a former Endeavor Air flight attendant is charged with stealing nearly 1,500 mini-bottles of liquor from her job and selling them online. The Shelby County district attorney’s office said Rachel Trevor, 28, has been indicted on charges including theft and unauthorised transportation of alcohol. Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission investigators said Trevor would put the small bottles of rum, vodka, gin and whiskey in her bag after a flight then post them for sale on Craigslist. Investigators said the bottles typically sell for $8 on flights, but Trevor sold them for $1.
