According to emerging reports, a 16-year-old boy from Tallaght has appeared in court following yesterday's road traffic accident on the N7 in Co Kildare.

While following up on reports of a burglary in Athy, Gardaí intercepted a vehicle on the N7 Naas Road at approximately 3.45pm on Thursday.

The vehicle stopped briefly before speeding off and colliding with another car on the Naas Road at Junction 8, Johnstown.

Arrests were made in the aftermath of the incident, and today it has been confirmed that the aforementioned 16-year-old has been charged following a special sitting of Naas District Court.

The youth, who cannot be named for legal reasons, has been charged with dangerous driving, driving without a licence or insurance, and possession of articles with intent to commit burglary

The driver and occupant of the other car were uninjured.


Over the weekend we reported that Coronation Street producers had recently made the decision to write Bruno Langley,  who plays Todd Grimshaw, out of the long-running soap.

It appeared that the decision to axe Langley came following reports that the actor has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault – something Coronation Street bosses denied in a statement relating to the character's departure.

“His contract ended on October 26th following an internal inquiry,” they said. “This inquiry was separate to any police investigation and was independent of any inquiries they are making.”

Today it has been confirmed that the 34-year-old actor has indeed been charged with two counts of sexual assault following an incident on October 1 in Manchester.

A Greater Manchester police spokeswoman said: “Bruno Langley has been charged with two counts of sexual assault and will appear at Manchester magistrates court on Tuesday 28 November 2017."

“At around 1am on Sunday 1 October 2017, police received a report that a woman in her 30s had been sexually assaulted at a music venue on Swan Street in the Northern Quarter.”

Prior to the charges, Langley released a statement referring to his departure from the soap in addition to what appears to be vague reference to his arrest.

"Sadly, I will no longer be working on Coronation Street. Acting on the show has been the fulfilment of a personal dream," he said.

“Playing the role of Todd Grimshaw since I was 17 years old has been a huge part of my life, and an absolute honour. I would like to thank all of my friends who work on the show for their love, friendship and support during this extremely difficult period."

Langley's final scenes will air on Christmas Eve.



With allegations circling around for years now, the truth has finally come out.

Bill Crosby was officially charged today for drugging and sexually assaulting a woman at his home 12 years ago. 

In what will probably be the most high-profile case of the century, the comedian could be sent to prison for the rest of his years.

He is accused of lacing former Temple University employee, Andrea Constand's, wine with pills and then taking advantage of her while she was unable to comprehend what was happening. 

She was "frozen, paralysed, unable to move," Montgomery County District Attorney-elect Kevin Steele said within the charges. 

It is still unclear what pills he used on Andrea, but but Kevin noted that Cosby has admitted giving Quaaludes to women he wanted to have sex with.

He was arrested this afternoon on a charge of aggravated indecent assault, which means he may have to serve between five to 10 years behind bars and a $25,000 (€23,000) fine.

We're glad justice has finally been served for Andrea.



Lindsay Lohan’s mum has been ordered to perform 100 hours of community service for a drink-driving charge.

Dina Lohan pleaded guilty in New York to the charge of driving while under the influence of alcohol.

During her court appearance yesterday, the star’s mum also pleaded guilty to speeding.

Police said 50-year-old Dina was driving 77mph in a 55mph zone when she was arrested on September 12th in Oyster Bay.

They said her blood alcohol level was more than double the legal limit.

The mum of the troubled actress is expected to be sentenced on June 3rd to a conditional discharge and 100 hours of community service.

Dina’s lawyer Mark Heller blamed the paparazzi for the incident.

He said, “It is the professional opinion, as stated here by the evaluator, that the circumstances leading to Dina’s arrest were largely impacted by ongoing daily stresses caused by you folks, the paparazzi, media attention and distorted tabloid character profiles.”

27-year-old Lindsay had reportedly predicted in the past that her mum would be arrested for a drink-driving offence.
