Five-year-old tiny girl Charlotte Garside, who is just 68cm tall and weighs less than nine pounds, is the same size as her favourite teddy and the smallest girl in the world. Tiny girl Charlotte was born with a form of Primordial Dwarfism so rare doctors don't even have a name for it. She lives with parents Emma and Scott Garside and sisters Chloe, Sabrina and Sophie in Withernsea, UK. Smallest girl Charlotte's mum was warned she might die before the age of one, but now aged five she has developed into a boisterous and inquisitive girl.
This London canal party on water was supposed to have been called off due to health and safety fears - but it seems these London canal party goers didn't get the memo. Hundreds ignored the official cancellation to hop aboard their dinghies and enjoy 2013 Canalival on Regents Canal in London. A narrowboat, complete with a booming sound system, led the inflatable flotilla along London's Regents Canal. The crowd set off from Gainsbourgh Studios and slowly drifted east to Hackney before partying into the evening. The event was generally good-natured but the earlier cancellation meant there was a lack of adequate facilities, local homeowners said, and some complained about littering and rowdiness. However, judging by these lively scenes, it didn't seem to deflate the party too much. Filmed & Edited by Ian Phillips

This dramatic footage show the changing fortunes of Roona Begum, the eighteen-month-old baby whose head swelled to three-times its normal size. Since being admitted to Fortis Memorial Research Institute hospital in Gurgaon, India, the toddler's head has been reduced from 37ins to around 21ins through a series of life-saving surgeries. Director of neurosurgery Dr. Sandeep Vaishya, who has personally cared for Roona, insists "after a couple more surgeries she will start looking like a normal kid". But Roona's poverty stricken parents, who earn just £2-a-day between them in rural Tripura, need more donations if they are to fund the complex reconstructive procedures needed.

A real life vampire MUM-OF-THREE has shockingly revealed she drinks live human BLOOD from PEOPLE - sometimes consuming nearly TWO LITRES (half a gallon) a month. Bloodthirsty real life vampire Julia Caples, 45, is a vampire fanatic who has been sucking blood from willing 'donors' for over 30 years and says she's hooked. And she reveals there is a huge underground sub-culture of other drinkers all over the world, who secretly engage in the same bizarre practices. Doctors feel a 'resurgence of blood drinking' is happening because of the recent spate of vampire series and films like Twilight. Care-worker Julia 'hunts' for willing 'donors' - fellow vampire fans willing to let Julia drink from them - at her local occult and oddities store. During drinking sessions at her Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania home, Julia carefully cuts them with a pagan-like sterilised knife she designed herself. She believes that guzzling down the the lifeblood from others keeps her feeling young and vigorous - just like ageless vampires from cult movies.

THE mighty Ark Royal cuts a forlorn figure as she reaches her final resting place - 2,000 miles from home. A tugboat dragged Britain's most famous warship into a scrapping facility at Izmir, west Turkey, today (June 10, 2013). Here the 22,000-tonne light aircraft carrier will be stripped down and could eventually be turned into everything from bridge foundations to tin cans and razor blades. The flagship vessel, which led forces during the invasion of Iraq in 2003, was sold by the Ministry of Defence to ship recycling firm Leyal for a reported £2.9m.
