Finn underwent four hours of emergency surgery and is now recovering at home with handler PC Dave Wardell.

Finn was just a normal ‘on duty’ police officer when he was stabbed while chasing a suspect – except he was a dog. Now, a petition calling for police animals to be given the same status as human officers, if they are injured at work, has reached nearly 30,000 signatures. The Finn’s Law campaign is named after the Hertfordshire police dog who, along with his handler, was stabbed in Stevenage in the line of duty. The petition calls for people who attack police animals to face charges similar to those for attacking a person.

As you all know, Razzi is scared of his own shadow and is often found hiding behind the couch when something scary comes on the telly. So you can imagine how he is feeling at the moment with the latest craze of dressing up like killer clowns. Imagine it. You’re on your way home. It’s dark. Out of the corner of your eye you see a figure lurking menacingly. As your eyes adjust to the gloom, the figure eases into focus – it’s a clown. At this point Razzi would be trying to find his nearest hiding spot but is it as funny…

Paddington Bear is famous the world over, having been translated into 30 different languages and sold more than 30 million copies worldwide. He first appeared on 13th October 1958 and was subsequently featured in several books written by Michael Bond and illustrated by Peggy Fortnum. The polite immigrant bear from darkest Peru, with his old hat, battered suitcase, duffle coat and love of marmalade sandwiches has become a classic character from English literature. Here at Jammy Toast, we are pleased to bring you some of the tales which have made Paddington Famous the world over…

Most of us had a favourite soft toy if you think back to your childhood. A silent friend who over time becomes side-lined and left on a shelf or on top of a wardrobe. But for some adults they remain an essential companion who never leaves the side of their owner. “Most people know me as Jamie plus Lion. It’s really not a big deal,” says Jamie Knight, a 27-year-old developer for the BBC who lives in London with Lion, a 4ft-long soft toy – sometimes known as a Plushie – who never leaves his side. I’m autistic, which is a posh way of saying I have a different way of thinking and perceiving the world.

Much to the delight of Liverpudlians everywhere, Merseyside’s most popular scran is to be sold nationwide by supermarket chain Tesco. For decades the famous lamb stew has kept Liverpudlians on the go and there is nothing more welcoming on Merseyside than the distinct aroma of a pan of scouse on the go. The store is to sell the famous dish in a heat and eat pouch. Here at Jammy Toast, we are delighted at the move but we think the store could go further and start selling even more of our favourite local delicacies to help put a lining on the nation’s stomachs.

Today we are going to ask everyone who visits Jammy Toast to just “Talk Shit” for the day. We ask that anyone who visits Jammy Toast leaves a comment on just about any subject they choose. Funny or sad, true or false, real or fake; we don’t give a shit as long as it is entertaining and doesn’t really hurt anyone. We ask you to do this because we are too busy to think of anything else to post – hopefully everyone will like the freedom to whine and bitch. The rules are pretty simple to explain – basically, anything goes!

Off To The Land Of The Two Quid Lucozade

Ithink we have told you all before, from time to time Razzi and I head off to the Land of The Early to Bed to collect or drop off a car. We call it that because we once stayed overnight and discovered the whole place closes at 8pm and goes to bed; including all the chippies, off licenses – in fact, you name it and it was closed by 8pm. That is Ripon for you. Today we returned to the general area but a little further along the M62 towards Leeds. I don’t know about RIPPON, we would like to re-christen that place RIPOFF or The Land of the Two Quid Lucozade. Furthermore, when we say we purchased a bottle, we do not mean a monstrous two litre jobby with enough Lucozade to drown in – we are talking about the smallest bottle you can buy which usually retails for around 99p. At Leeds Railway Station they sell the same bottle for TWO QUID!
