Those of you hankering after the days of Nationwide or That’s Life, or who are addicted to Nick Owen’s daily animal news spot might find something interesting on the Brum-based Quirky News website. As it’s based round here it seems to be quite midlands-heavy in its slant.

Quirky News is a press agency that specialises in the odd little stories that lighten up newspapers worldwide with photos of cats who take the bus – if you’ve got an odd story they’ll sell it and split the profits with you.
