And now it's even cheaper than ever, as the high street chicken giant has decided to start selling a huge bucket of 20 - yes, 20 - hot wings for just £5.99. With two hot wings usually setting you back 99p for the pair, if you wanted 20 of them, you'd usually have to fork out at huge £9.90, meaning that the 20-piece bucket offer saves you a very decent £3.91. As well as the big, spicy chicken bucket, KFC will also be offering mash potato as a side order, just like in America, if you still don't favour their newly-improved fries over McDonald's. (Image: Getty Images)Still with the famous crispy coating, but with ten times the spice, KFC is showcasing its impressive hot wing bucket offer on its website right now for the world to see, saying "Grab 20 of our best Hot Wings for a full on fiery feast." Because nothing says summer quite like a bucket of KFC hot wings, right?

Oberstown Children Detention Campus, where Boy A and Boy B have been remanded in custody pending sentencing for the murder of Ana Kriégel, is situated on the outskirts of Lusk, north Co Dublin. This is almost certainly where the boys will serve any custodial sentence imposed, up to the age of 18. At other times some young offenders have absconded during day trips with staff, though most are found and returned to the campus very quickly. All of the young offenders have their own en-suite bedroom. “Multipurpose rooms” are also included in each unit where young offenders can watch movies, play video games and take phone calls in private.
At least 126 children, many of them less than 10 years of age, have died this month in India’s eastern Bihar state in an outbreak of encephalitis, commonly known as brain fever.

Caster Semenya has accused world athletics’ governing body the IAAF of using her as “a human guinea pig” to test its testosterone limit for intersex athletes and said it can never be allowed to happen again. In a statement, Semenya said: “The IAAF used me in the past as a human guinea pig to experiment with how the medication they required me to take would affect my testosterone levels. “Even though the hormonal drugs made me feel constantly sick, the IAAF now wants to enforce even stricter thresholds with unknown health consequences. “But I am concerned that other female athletes will feel compelled to let the IAAF drug them and test the effectiveness and negative health effects of different hormonal drugs. CAS was also unimpressed with the IAAF’s evidence to support the testosterone limit in the 1500 metres and mile events and praised Semenya’s conduct and dignity.
