In what must be one of the strangest stories in the news, a man has been jailed for 15 months for failing to pop the cork of a depressed woman.
This woman was so depressed that she wanted to die and so gave would-be assassin Kevin Reeves a total of £20,000 to do her in, or arrange for someone else to do it. Rather than see her pushed in front of a train or something he decided to just keep the money instead, so now she was 20 grand worse off and even more depressed. She called the cops.
