John is understood to have been driving to his brother’s house in Buffalo, New York on Tuesday when a driver jumped a red light and ploughed into his pick-up truck. The former U.S. Marine achieved worldwide notoriety in 1993 when his then wife Lorena used an eight inch carving knife to cut off his penis as punishment for what she said were repeated beatings. John is believed to have suffered a broken vertebrae and slipped disc in his back during the crash, his injuries are not thought to be life threatening and he is expected to make a full recovery.

A VIEW FROM THE TOP OF THE WORLD TRADE CENTER

It was a huge privilege to be invited to go up to the nearly completed Observatory floor at the top of One World Trade Center with writer Annette Witheridge.  Having sadly covered the September 11 attacks and witnessing first hand the collapse of both of the twin towers, it was a strange feeling but a good one being at the top of the new tower. It’s an amazing piece of architecture and a fitting memorial to all of those, who lost their lives on that fateful day.

KODAK FILM IN THE FRIDGE

In the good old days, we used to store film in the fridge and apparently I still do.  Cleaning out the fridge the other day I came across these old rolls of 35mm black and white film.  I haven’t the heart to throw them out despite them being out of date and not shooting a roll of film since 2005……….
