    This motorcyclist had a lucky escape after crashing into a car after overtaking a Google Street View vehicle - which captured the event for posterity. The young man was riding the bike in shorts and t-shirt when he overtook the Google car. He then approaches a car in front and unsuccessfully tries to squeeze past it before clipping the vehicle and falling off. The bike ends up in the path of a Volkswagen Polo but luckily the motorcyclist avoids being hit by passing traffic

    An exceptionally dry summer — and a watering hose that was too short — helped archaeologists clear up a centuries-old mystery surrounding Britain's Stonehenge monument: Did the ancient stones make a complete circle in ancient times?
    The dried-up grass around Stonehenge suggests that they did. A steward at the site, Tim Daw, noticed in July 2013 that there were some particularly parched spots on the monument's southwest side, spanning a gap in today's incomplete arc of stones. Archaeologists say those spots represent places where the ground was disturbed by the digging of stone holes.





    "If these stone holes actually held upright stones, then we've got a complete circle," Susan Greaney, senior properties historian for English Heritage, said in an emailed statement. "It's really significant, and it shows us just how much we still have to learn about Stonehenge.
