Pills in toy dis­penser

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

A leaked record­ing of a speech by Theresa May sheds some light on the depth of the prime min­is­ter’s op­po­si­tion to tak­ing Bri­tain out of the Euro­pean Union be­fore the ref­er­en­dum ear­lier this year. May was Home Sec­re­tary at the time of the speech to in­vest­ment bankers at Gold­man Sachs. It was de­liv­ered in May, less than one month be­fore the his­toric vote in favour of leav­ing the EU. She told bankers she be­lieved Bri­tain reaped “sig­nif­i­cant” ben­e­fits from be­ing part of the Euro­pean sin­gle mar­ket, with its 500 mil­lion peo­ple. She warned firms might leave Bri­tain if it was no longer part of the 28-na­tion bloc. Po­lice in the US state of New Hamp­shire said a seven-year-old girl in­serted coins into a toy dis­penser and re­ceived a plas­tic cap­sule filled with med­i­ca­tion for blood pres­sure and kid­ney stones. Rochester Po­lice Capt Ja­son Thomas said the girl put a quar­ter into the ma­chine for the third time at a pizza restau­rant on Fri­day when it spit out a con­tainer that had at least three pills where the toy should have been. Thomas said two of the pills were blood pres­sure med­i­ca­tion; the third was a cap­sule of med­i­ca­tion to treat kid­ney stones. Author­i­ties are in­ves­ti­gat­ing how the med­i­ca­tions got in­side.
