London zoo has got a brand new baby sloth, and he is all kinds of cute.

The seven-week-old two-toed sloth has been named Edward, after Edward Scissorhands due to his massive claws.

Unfortunately little Edward’s mother has stopped producing milk, so he is being cared for by zookeeper Kelly-Anne Kelleher.

The task is giving Kelly-Anne a lesson in patience, as sloths are notoriously slow creatures.

She often has to wait several minutes for the little guy to emerge from a deep sleep before she can feed him.

A light aircraft has crashed into a car dealership in Hampshire.

A massive blaze could be seen after the plane, believed to be a Learjet, reportedly overshot a nearby runway at Blackbushe Airport.

The plane was carrying four passengers, initial reports say, though the condition of them is still unknown.

Fire crews could be seen at the dealership dousing the flames while people looked on in horror, many filming the incident.

Eyewitnesses say the plane clipped a fence before flipping over and hitting into the parked cars before bursting into flames.

Researchers at the University of York found that males with a ganja habit are more likely than females who smoke to suffer mental health problems such as psychosis.

Psychosis is a mental illness that causes sufferers to perceive or interpret things differently to people around them.

This includes hallucinations where a person hears, sees, and in some cases, feels, smells or tastes things that are not there.
