Uri Geller returns to Israel

People living in a Berkshire village have now got an unusual reminder of one of their best known residents who is moving on to pastures new.

Illusionist Uri Geller lived in Sonning for 35 years and today he unveiled a spoon-bending sculpture as a departing gift before returning home to Israel.


Man punched in the face

Police have launched an investigation after a man was punched in the face while walking in Reading town centre.

It happened just before midnight on Thursday. The victim, a 38-year-old man, left the Hope Tap pub in Friar Street and walked towards West Street.

A man approached him and swore at him, then assaulted him.

The offender then walked past the victim and down Friar Street towards Reading town hall.

He is white, aged in his mid-twenties, 5ft 5 to 5ft 11ins, medium build with short dark hair.

He was wearing a dark blue or black zip-up jacket and dark trousers.

"The incident appears to have been an unprovoked attack and I would like to speak to anyone who saw anything which may assist with police enquiries.”
