Vicar leads flashmob at wedding

A bride and groom have surprised their wedding guests by launching into a dance routine with their vicar after they were declared husband and wife.

The groom Gary Richardson said that the couple wanted to do "something a bit different" to celebrate their wedding, and that their Vicar, the Reverend Kate Bottley of St Mary and St Martin's Church, Blyth had suggested a 'flash mob'.

28 of their friends agreed to join in with the performance on the 15th June, which was choreographed by friends from Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice.

Dutch shoppers shocked by 17th-century flashmob

Shoppers at a Dutch mall were flabbergasted when a shoplifter prompted a more dramatic response than usual.

Swordsmen descended on ropes, horsemen thundered over polished marble tiles and chickens and dwarves ran amok.

Thankfully, it was all part of a stunt to promote the re-opening of Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam. It finished with a picture-perfect imitation of Rembrandt's The Night Watch painting.
