Lindsay to give herself up for arrest

LOS ANGELES: Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan is set to "give herself up" for arrest after failing a court-ordered drug test for cocaine during her bail term. The 24-year-old had finished her jail term only last month and is facing another stint in prison. But Lohan says that she is taking responsibility for her actions and is ready for the consequences, reported Los Angeles Times online. The Mean Girls star has taken to Twitter to plead her case, saying that she is "a work in progress" and working hard to overcome drug abuse.

Overweight UK Army chief gets new uniform

LONDON: Britain's new army chief General Sir Peter Wall is said to have forked out £1,000 for his new uniform to fit his "overweight" body, weighing 127 kg. The 55-year-old General Wall, who took over as Chief of the General Staff this week and is known as a "big eater", was measured up for a new service dress uniform at a cost of £1,000, which he paid for himself, the Daily Mail reported. A source said, "A tailor had to come into the office because the jacket and trousers were too small. The general is a very big, imposing man, but you would never tell him that."
