For five seasons, John Oliver and his team at HBO's Last Week Tonight have pulled absurd pranks such as starting a church and buying commercial time during Fox & Friends in an attempt to Trojan-horse information to President Donald Trump.

The comedian confirmed rumours he claimed the prized possession at the star's recent Art Of Divorce auction.

Police in the Southern Region are launching Operation Chrome this weekend, in order to reduce road trauma and save lives on rural roads.

The first phase of Operation Chrome will run from tomorrow (Friday 27 April 2018) until Sunday (29 April 2018).

The operation will utilise police from all Police Districts within the Southern region, working alongside officers from the Traffic & Highway Patrol Command.

Police will be targeting poor driver behaviours that are costing lives on rural roads including speeding, drink and drug-driving, not wearing seatbelts, using a mobile phone while driving and fatigue.

Drivers and riders should expect to see more police on rural roads and highways in the southern region over the coming days.

Assistant Commissioner Peter Barrie, Commander of the Southern Region, said reducing rural road trauma is a priority for the entire southern region.

“During Operation Chrome, it will not only be officers from the Traffic & Highway Patrol that will be tasked with keeping everyone safe on our roads.

“If you are on our roads and doing something wrong you can expect to be stopped by detectives in an unmarked car, general duties police, or one of our highway patrol officers.

“Our primary aim is to stop fatal crashes before they happen. To do that, we make no apologies for enforcing the road rules that are the biggest contributors to fatal crashes.

“Road safety is everyone’s responsibility. If every driver or rider takes personal responsibility for their actions, it will save lives. It’s that simple,” Assistant Commissioner Barrie said.

Superintendent Bob Ryan, Regional Command of the Traffic & Highway Patrol said,

“Sadly, we have already lost 118 lives on NSW roads this year. More than two-thirds of those lives lost are in regional areas.

“The biggest tragedy is that most of the lives we have already lost were because of a poor decision by someone behind the wheel.

“We make no apologies for taking licences away from anyone who puts themselves and other road users at risk through dangerous driving behaviours,” Superintendent Ryan said.

Police have released CCTV footage and are reappealing for public assistance as investigations continue into the death of a man at Clovelly last week.

About 11pm on Saturday 14 April 2018, emergency services were called to Fern Street after 62-year old, Colin Scott, was found unconscious on the footpath.

Mr Scott was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital and treated for severe facial injuries and brain damage. He died on Tuesday 17 April 2018.

Detectives from Eastern Beaches Police Area Command have been investigating Mr Scott’s death.

Investigators have now released CCTV footage and are appealing for public assistance, urging anyone who might have seen Mr Scott or can identify persons in the vision, who detectives believe may be able to assist with their inquiries, to come forward.

Mr Scott, a local resident, was last seen leaving a 353 bus from Bondi Junction on the eastern side of Fern Street about 10.45pm.

He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, of a large build, about 180cm tall, and grey hair.

He is shown wearing a navy check shirt, black pants, a navy cap, and carrying a black duffle bag.

Detectives are keen to speak with anyone who was in the area at that time or has information about events leading up to Mr Scott being found injured, to contact detectives as they may have information that can assist.

Inquiries are continuing and police are awaiting the result of a post mortem examination to determine the cause of death.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: nsw.crimestoppers.com.au/ Information you provide will be treated in the strictest of confidence.

Sick of seeing plastic-wrapped oranges? Tell Woolworths and Coles to #breakfreefromplastic: act.gp/end-plastic

Saw this today in my local Woolworths. How ridiculous.

Yes! This is what we need. Thank you, Greenpeace!

Done & can someone tell me why people put bananas in plastic bags? Annoys the hell out me & our local Coles have handy bags either side of the bananas. WHY?!?

All pointless til you ban all plastic they everywhere in what you buy. Table Magarine, Shampoo, Dish Washing Liquid, Cordial Bottles, Soft drink Bottle, Milk Bottle, Cheese Slices, Snack Bars etc.

Unnecessary and ridiculous... always choose the loose fruit items and place them in your trolley. Still can’t buy loose berries though

Please can we just stop manufacturing plastic! Period.

Do not purchase fruit or vegetables wrapped in plastic....

There are companies making timber from recycled plastics

Why doesn’t all plastic packaging get phased out over the next decade ?

You need to include Aldi. They also package most of their fruit and vegetables

I’m with you
