FT: QPR 2 - 2 Stoke City

Stoke City twice lost a one-goal lead at Queens Park Rangers, to come away from Loftus Road with a 2-2 draw.

Mame Biram Diouf's header put the visitors ahead in the 11th minute, before Steven Caulker equalised on the stroke of half time from very close range.

It didn't take Stoke long to bounce back after the break - Peter Crouch's left footed shot from the centre of the box to the top left corner putting them into a 2-1 lead.

But Niko Kranjcar denied the visitors the win, scoring from a free kick to level the score in the 88th minute.


VIDEO: CCTV released after road rage attack

Police have released CCTV footage after a woman attacked another woman after she was asked to move the car she was in, which was blocking her in a road in Birmingham.

The assault took place at around 1pm on 30 July outside the Shalil Food store in Wellington Road, Handsworth Wood.

The 44-year-old woman was driving her Ford C-Max when she was blocked in the road by another car, a grey VW Tournan, which had a woman in the passenger seat, whilst the male driver had gone to the nearby shops.The woman asked her how long they were going to be as she was unable to pass by, and was given abuse by the woman passenger of the VW Touran. The woman then went another route and parked nearby to go to the shops.

As she walked towards the shops, the passenger of the Touran got out, grabbed her by the hair, threw her over a table outside the grocery store, before pulling her to her feet by the hair again and throwing her on the floor.

The woman, described as white, in her early 20s, with long brown hair tied back in a pony-tail, and wearing a black vest top and grey tracksuit bottoms, then went to nearby shop and returned to see the woman noting down the vehicle registration number. She then assaulted her again, before returning back into her car with the male driver and driving away.

The 44-year-old woman suffered a lump to her head and bruising following the assault.

PC Geraldine Sprigg, from Birmingham West and Central, said: "This was an unprovoked and violent attack on a woman who had asked the driver to move her car which was blocking the road.

"The assault took place in the middle of the day and we are asking for anyone who say the incident or who recognises the woman driver to contact us. The woman assaulted suffered pain and discomfort following the attack and may have lost consciousness for a short time."

Wedgwood Museum appeal raises more than £2m

A public appeal launched to save the Wedgwood Museum pottery collection has raised more than £2m.

The collection is currently being sold to pay the Stoke-on-Trent firm's pension bill.

The museum went into administration in 2010 after the firm collapsed and its £134m pension debts were transferred to the museum trust.

The Art Fund launched the £2.74m public appeal at the start of September. It is part of a full £15.75m fundraising campaign which has already raised more than £13m from the Heritage Lottery Fund, the Art Fund and other private support.

It leaves the appeal with just under £750,000 of the full £15.75m target still to raise.

With just under £750,000 to go, we continue to talk to several further potential funders.

The remarkable affection and concern for the Wedgwood Collection has never been so profoundly visible as through the convergence of so many individuals, trusts and foundations.

Every single donor in the community of givers should be immensely proud of the scale of what has been achieved to date.

– Stephen Deuchar, director of the Art Fund

The Art Fund has until 30 November to save the Wedgwood Collection.
