India lightning strikes ‘kill 79’

At least 79 people have been killed by lightning strikes in the Indian states of Bihar, Jharkhand and Madhya Pradesh, officials say.

Fifty three people died in Bihar. Ten people were killed in the eastern state of Jharkhand, and at least 16 died in Madhya Pradesh.

Most of the people who died were working on farms during torrential rains on Tuesday, reports said.

Lightning strikes are common in India during heavy monsoon rains.

In Bihar, the deaths occurred in Nalanda, Aurangabad, Rohtas, Purnea, Munger, Gaya, Saharsa, Bhagalpur, Banka and Kaimur.

At least 2,000 people have died in lightning strikes in India every year since 2005, according to the National Crime Records Bureau.

India receives 80% of its annual rainfall during the monsoon season, which runs between June and September.

Safety tips when lightning strikes

• Seek shelter inside a large building or a car

• Get out of wide, open spaces and away from exposed hilltops

• If you have nowhere to shelter, make yourself as small a target as possible by crouching down with your feet together, hands on knees and head tucked in

• Do not shelter beneath tall or isolated trees

• If you are on water, get to the shore and off wide, open beaches as quickly as possible

Tout And Bus Conductor Fight In A Gutter In Lagos

A bus conductor and a tout (Agbero) exchanged blows right inside a gutter yesterday at Ikeja, Lagos. According to an eyewitness Gbenga Oni, the Agbero demanded for money from the conductor as the driver of the danfo bus stopped to drop off passengers but the conductor refused to part with any sum insisting he was carrying a “Staff”.

An argument ensued and the men began to fling blows at each other, right inside the gutter. SMH, Lagosians and their show of madness.

Leicester City win Premier League title after Tottenham fail to beat Chelsea

Leicester City have won the Premier League title after Tottenham Hotspur failed to beat Chelsea on Monday night.

image

The Foxes become the first club since Nottingham Forest in 1977-78 to win the English top-flight league title for the first time, having only once before — in 1928-29 — finished as runners-up.

After Leicester drew 1-1 with Manchester United at the weekend, Tottenham were left needing to beat the Blues to keep the title race alive, but Claudio Ranieri’s men are now an unassailable seven points clear of their rivals with two games left to playafter the 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.

Midfielder Riyad Mahrez and striker Jamie Vardy had already picked up the PFA’s Footballer of the Year and Football Writers’ Association awards. It is the first time that two players from the same club have claimed both awards in the same season since Everton’s Neville Southall and Peter Reid in 1985.

It marks an incredible rise for the club who were facing relegation last season — and spent 140 days from November 2014 to April 2015 at the bottom of the Premier League table — before a run of seven wins in their last nine games under Nigel Pearson kept them up. They eventually finished in 14th place.

Pearson was sacked in the summer and replaced by Ranieri in July, while the club spent less than £30 million on their squad since last summer, with their entire squad costing just £54.4m.

After their troubles last season, Leicester were 5,000-1 to win the title in 2015-16, with the highest cashout being £72,000 settled on a £50 bet in March, according to Ladbrokes.

Bookies face £10m hit if Leicester win

Leicester were 5,000-1 to win the Premier League title at the start of the season…

image

The UK’s leading bookmakers face paying out more than £10m if Leicester City win the Premier League title.

At the beginning of the season, Claudio Ranieri’s side were as much as 5,000-1 to finish as champions, while the odds were 1000-1 to be top at Christmas.

The Foxes lead the Premier League by five points from Tottenham and have lost just three times all season.

Leicester can guarantee themselves a shock title triumph with three wins from their remaining four games.

image

Betfred are the only bookmakers to have already paid out on Leicester as champions, after they beat Southampton 1-0 on 3 April.

“I’ve been wrong before but this time I can’t see Spurs or Arsenal catching Ranieri’s men,” said Betfred boss Fred Done.

At the start of the season, 47 people placed a bet with Ladbrokes for Leicester to win the title at 5000-1 – of which 23 have cashed out, while 24 are still awaiting their fate.

“Leicester’s win would be the biggest upset in the history of betting,” Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes told BBC Sport. “It would be the worst result for us financially and our biggest payout by a distance.

“If Chelsea, Manchester City or Manchester United would have won, the total payouts would have been in the few hundred thousands.

“Leicester have been upsetting the odds all season but it is a brilliant Hollywood story that we are a part of. Hats off to anyone who backed them at the start of the season.”

Last month, a Leicester fan cashed out for £72,000 from a £50 bet on his team to win the title.
