London Lite Monday, 13 July 2009 Flippin brilliant!StuntbikersomersaultsacrossTowerBridgeat3am IN A stunt to make Evel Knievel proud, an Australian jumped across an open Tower Bridge on a motorbike early this morning -- and that wasnt all. Not content with flying through the air 100 feet over the Thames, Robbie Maddison did a backflip as he went. The whole experience was awesome, said Mr Maddison, 27, who holds the world record for the longest motorbike jump. We had a matter of minutes on the bridge and had to time everything to the second. There were so many factors to get right, but we pulled it off. People say Im crazy, but I love taking on these huge challenges. It was an incredible feeling to fly between the two towers and over the Thames.

M&S fools with the gooseberry THE first pink dessert gooseberry, which can be eaten straight from the punnet, is on sale today at m&S. The new sweeter version of the fruit, specially grown at a farm in Faversham, Essex, has fewer spines than the green gooseberry, making it better for eating raw, rather than just being used stewed for compotes, jams and fools.
