– Thai province declares disaster zones
In Samut Sakhon, the governor there has declared two foundries as disaster zones following the discovery of 15 thousand tons of cadmium waste that arrived there, mysteriously from Tak province over a three month period for DISPOSAL. The highly toxic product is known to cause sickness among humans and can enter the water table with ease. A full enquiry is underway to establish how it was transported AND its origin – likely from old batteries.

– Smoking tourist attacks Phuket Taxi driver
On Phuket, an Austrian with a penchant for tobacco was arrested after beating up a taxi driver who, rightly , told him he could not smoke in the vehicle. With drivers being fined for allowing passengers to smoke, the foreigner fought so much that the driver crashed and the 59 year old climbed into the front of the vehicle to berate him.

– Fire engulfs overnight ferry in Thailand 
At least 10 passengers suffered from smoke inhalation after an overnight ferry caught fire off Koh Tao in Surat Thani province on Thursday morning. Believed to have been caused by wiring in the engine bay, the fire spread, leaving passengers, some 97 of them, along with crew, scared until local boats sailed to the rescue. With smoke bailing out across the ship, all were safely recovered. The fire was eventually extinguished and the cause has yet to be ascertained.

– Water crisis sees rationing in Thai provinces
On Koh PhaNgan, a water crisis since late March has resulted in water rationing to all addresses, homes, businesses and hotels. On Koh Samui, the situation iis the same, despite both islands having some semblance of reservoirs and desalination plants. Hotels, we are told, are buying water from trucks to keep up with demand.

– Fake banknotes circulating Thailand – how to spot them?
Fake 1,000 baht notes have popped up in many regions and the warning is out to businesses to invest in note pens, that when drawn on money show a distinction between fakes and the real thing. With one vendor scalped to the tune of ten thousand alone, the notes are well-made but reportedly FEEL different, so don’t be concerned if you pay with a large note and someone paints with a pen over it, that, at least, won’t make it worthless.

– Drunk Brit tries to flee after late-night accident in Pattaya (VIDEO)
In Banglamung, police were holding a British expat believed to have been drunk when he, on a motorbike, collided with a motorbike, seeing two Thais along with him taken to hospital for treatment. As the Thais remained in care yesterday, reports indicate that the Brit tried to escape and flee, only to be caught by police in the hospital and taken, duly, to the cells at the station. 39 yr old Ashton Ellison is reported to have been too intoxicated to make a statement and blood tests were duly taken,

– Rayong fisherman nets whale vomit worth millions
In nearby Rayong, a local fisherman is feeling lucky after netting a lump of ambergris, a valuable substance used in the production of perfume. The specialty will see him and his family well off for a considerable while. Ambergris, often referred to as whale vomit, is a rare and valuable substance that forms in the digestive system of whales, hardening over time and highly sought after.

– Pattaya taxi driver attacked by passenger’s jealous ex-boyfriend
On Chaiyapruek 1, a bolt taxi driver took a pasting from the ex of his female passenger who assumed that the taxi driver was her new beau. Despite never having met her, and only transporting her for the fare, the driver called police after his vehicle was damaged and the, now ex, smashed windows to get to him. With the woman cowering in the rear seat, he sped off to a safe distance before calling police.
