Shocking note left on car
A woman has slammed the “imbecile” who left a nasty note on her car commenting on her parking skills, when really they were the one in the wrong.
Linda Hibbard shared a picture of the rude note to the Brunswick Heads Community Facebook page, in which the writer called her out for “sh*t parking” and gave her a score of one out of ten.
However, a furious Ms Hibbard pointed out that she was actually parked correctly, and it was them who didn’t know the rules.
“To the imbecile who put this note on my car this morning which was parked in accordance with the signage at The Strand, I hope you get a fine!” she wrote.
“Be warned, the parking police were there just last week fining those parked nose to the fence … may you be next!”
Members of the page were shocked by the note, with some claiming they had received harsh notes as well.
“That happened to me too! But just a nasty note left on my screen,” one person wrote.
“What an awful thing to do,” another said.
One person said that people need to “mind their own business” and “get over it” if they come across someone parked badly.
Violent brawl breaks out on Qld flight
A flight from Queensland to Singapore was forced to turn around after a brutal mid-air fight broke out, with one passenger having to be restrained.
A scuffle broke out about one hour and 20 minutes into the eight hour Scoot flight, when a man became disruptive and violent towards other passengers.
Footage of the incident shows a man throwing multiple punches at a passenger before being held down by a group of onlookers.
“During boarding and takeoff, the passenger appeared normal. After takeoff, he began to disturb surrounding passengers,” Scoot said in a statement.
Surrounding passengers were reportedly moved to other seats and the crew were instructed not to serve him any alcohol.
“A while later, the unruly passenger punched another passenger. Following safety procedure, our crew stepped in to break up the fight and were assisted by other passengers,” Scoot said.
“The unruly passenger was eventually subdued with two restraining kits, with the help of five passengers.”
The passenger that filmed the incident told 7 News that the man became aggressive after drinking heavily when the flight was delayed.
The man was reportedly restrained for the remainder of the journey while the flight we redirected to Sydney, where he was met by the Australian Federal Police and paramedics.
The other passengers were transferred to other flights back to Singapore. No charges have been laid.

Pill testing shown to ‘interested’ NSW MPs
Experts behind the pill testing trial in the ACT are set to demonstrate the service to interested NSW MPs but Premier Gladys Berejiklian will not be among them.
The demonstration and explanation of testing equipment is to be held in Sydney’s east today at the Ted Noffs Foundation, which handles the treatment of young Australians experiencing drug and alcohol problems.
The foundation’s chief executive, Matt Noffs, first called for the pill testing service after the ecstasy overdose death of Georgina Bartter at Sydney’s Harbourlife music festival in 2014.
He was also involved in the Australian-first trial conducted at Groovin’ the Moo festival in Canberra in April 2018.
Opposition health spokesman Walt Secord has accepted the invite “as part of an ongoing education process”.
“We owe it to the families of the young people who have died to listen and examine the evidence from the experts,” he said in a statement to AAP.
“It is disappointing to see the premier refuse to even listen.”
He said his attendance is not an endorsement of pill testing and NSW Labor’s policy is to examine the service within the context of their proposed formal drug summit this year.
A spokeswoman for Ms Berejiklian told AAP on Monday night the premier would not be attending the event.
