In a recent court session conducted by an Environment Protection Unit (EPU) sitting, three individuals were fined €700 each for burning waste and carpets at Qalet Marku (Naxxar) in spring 2023.

This successful prosecution was made possible by the diligent efforts of the Malta Ranger Unit, who handle over 300 environmental illegality cases monthly.

The Rangers documented the illegal burning and provided crucial evidence that facilitated the proceedings.

The Malta Ranger Unit discovered and recorded the burning of waste, which occurred in the countryside area of Qalet Marku. Subsequently, the evidence was submitted to the EPU Police, who ensured the perpetrators were brought to justice. The defendants admitted to the charges, leading to their individual fines totalling €2,100.

Animal Welfare has announced the unfortunate passing of one of the 28 pitbull terriers rescued earlier this week from a house in Żebbuġ.

Despite the dedicated efforts of veterinarians, Bronko succumbed to his injuries, as revealed in a heartbreaking announcement last night.

“The remaining dogs continue to receive necessary treatment,” Animal Welfare affirmed, referring to the group of pitbull terriers rescued from a residence on Triq Għarram last Thursday.

“Unfortunately, Bronko, one of the dogs rescued earlier this week by Animal Welfare, lost his battle because of his grievous injuries. Although veterinarians within the Animal Welfare department have done everything possible in recent days, Bronko succumbed to his injuries.”

Reports indicated that some dogs were kept in metal chains and unsanitary conditions, with many, like Bronko, suffering from wounds and neglect. Among the rescued animals were two tiny puppies.

The World’s Newest Oldest Living Man: John Tinniswood

The World’s Newest Oldest Living Man: John Tinniswood
Apr 7 2024 Share

John Tinniswood, a 111-year-old great-grandfather from Merseyside, has been recognized as the world’s oldest living man. Residing in a care home in Southport, Tinniswood attributes his remarkable longevity more to luck than lifestyle choices, although he enjoys fish and chips every Friday.

He downplays any notion of a special diet, saying, “I eat what they give me, like everyone else.”

Tinniswood, a Liverpool FC enthusiast, abstains from smoking and limits alcohol consumption.

He keeps abreast of current events by listening to the radio and manages his finances independently. His philosophy on health emphasizes moderation: “If you do too much of anything, you’re going to suffer eventually.”

Born in Liverpool in 1912, Tinniswood worked in accounts for Shell and BP until retiring in 1972. He fondly recalls meeting his late wife, Blodwen, at a dance during World War II. Reflecting on his 111 years, he remarks on the evolving world, cautiously optimistic about its progress.

Regarding his newfound Guinness World Record status, Tinniswood remains modest: “Doesn’t make any difference to me. Not at all. I accept it for what it is.” Described as a “big chatterbox” by care home staff, Tinniswood’s life is a testament to embracing each day with contentment and resilience.
