Campbell Accused Of 
                        Sabotage 
A Japanese fashion house has accused supermodel Naomi Campbell of trying to sabotage its show at the New York Fashion Week.
Designer Mal Sirrah has accused the model of trying to blacklist his event in the Harlem district of the city after taking offence to a T-shirt worn by an intern.
The top, a rip-off of a black Chip+Pepper tee worn by Campbell, reads: "Naomi slapped me..." on the front, while the reverse says, "and I slapped that b**ch back!"
Sirrah was reported stating, "We got a telephone call just this morning from one of her underlings, waxing on and on about how Naomi has been deeply wounded by this T-shirt, as she is truly trying to make a change in her life.
"Meanwhile, with the underlying threat being if we don't stop printing the T-shirts, we are going to be sued."
A spokesperson for the supermodel however dismisses the reports as a publicity stunt.

PETA Ends Campaign 
  Against Benetton
Animal rights campaigners People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have ended their campaign against fashion company Benetton after Benetton said it would support a deal between the Australian Wool Growers Association and PETA.
The agreement has already led to a new type of wool produced by farmers who back the aim of ending the practices that PETA has branded inhumane.
Benetton says it will purchase the wool, which is produced without the practice of mulesing for the animals, PETA say.
The retailer has also urged Australia’s wool industry to agree to the deal too.
Other retailers including Abercrombie & Fitch and American Eagle have already agreed to back the campaign.
The agreement sets a timetable for phasing out mulesing and exports to countries that don’t meet Australian welfare standards.

Naked Man Chases Thief
A builder jumped into his car and gave chase when thieves stole his horse trailer - even though he was stark naked.
The 49 year old man, Mick Ridley, was in the bath when his son raised the alarm.
Without even grabbing a towel, Mick raced downstairs and jumped into his Range Rover to give chase.
"I was totally naked but I didn't care," he said. "I just wanted that trailer back. I was covered in soap and water but I didn't have time to think."
Mick sped after the thief, who was using a lorry to tow the trailer, before he managed to get in front and block the road.
He said: "I ran over to the cab and he looked at me with real shock - I don't think he was expecting a naked man."
The thief escaped while Mick waited for police but was later caught in nearby Twyning.
The father-of-two said: "Luckily I found one of my wife's cardigans to put  round me.
"I gave a short statement to one of the police who arrived - but he said he thought it would be better to wait until I was home and had some clothes on."
