Exploding car ahead? The tricky quiz that mixes real and fake road signs that's guaranteed to catch drivers out

A timetable change worth celebrating: Discovering that the new Eurostar service to Amsterdam takes you straight to one of Europe's best hotels
When Eurostar launched a direct service to Amsterdam from London St Pancras on April 4 it's likely that many people thought 'ah, marijuana, beer bikes and the Red Light District - plus canals' - all now within easy reach. Yes, they are.

Did this acrobatic duo risk lives with this stunt? Photograph of daring pose at Maho Beach provokes fury

Now THAT'S a man cave! Inside the 65ft-deep underground world dug out by a builder over 23 YEARS... using just a chisel and hammer
These fascinating photos show how one man painstakingly created a jaw-dropping basement under his house, using just a hammer and chisel. Builder Levon Arakelyan (inset) spent 23 years crafting the incredible 65ft-deep, 3,000-square-foot subterranean space and he was even working on the project on the day he died in 2008, aged 67. He began working on it after his wife, Tosya, asked for a cool space for her potatoes. He got carried away. Today the hand-crafted cellar in the village of Arinj in Armenia is open as a museum and New Zealand-based Radio Free Europe photographer Amos Chapple recently journeyed to the attraction to shed some light on it.

'Engine crack' caused British Airways fire at Las Vegas airport and the captain was to blame for the chaotic evacuation, say federal investigators
A crack in an engine caused the British Airways jet to burst into flames at Las Vegas airport while the captain, Chris Henkey (inset) from Reading, Berkshire - hailed as a hero at the time - was to blame for a 'chaotic evacuation', federal investigators said. One flight attendant was seriously injured after fire ripped through the engine of the aircraft at McCarran International in September 2015. All 157 passengers and 13 crew on board the Boeing 777-236ER jet, which was bound for London, were able to evacuate but the plane was substantially damaged by fire. Investigators said Henkey took 22 seconds to shut off fuel to the engine that was on fire and that he called for an evacuation before completing an evacuation checklist. He left an engine running that hampered the deplaning process.
The hilariously crafty Airbnb photograph that fooled guests into thinking they were booking a rental with a big pool table...
They say the camera never lies. That may be true. But as this photograph shows, it can definitely be hilariously crafty. The image here duped a group of young men from Scotland into thinking they were getting an Airbnb rental in Croatia that would feature a full-size pool table. In fact it was just children-sized, the owners having used a clever angle to make it look big. One of the group, Brian Ashe, posted a series of images on Twitter showing the picture from the listing and how big the actual table was. Uploading a side-by-side image, he said: 'Hahahaha when one of the troops books an Airbnb specifically for the pool table.'
