Frank Norman, 71, said he didn't see Robert Stephenson lying in the middle of the road after the third-year student had embarked on a night of heavy drinking. Norman said by the time he saw the 21-year-old, it was too late as his vehicle struck the undergraduate on 26 March.
A boatload of tourists in the far eastern Russian Arctic thought they were seeing clumps of ice on the shore, before the jaw-dropping realisation that some 200 polar bears were roaming on the mountain slope. "It was a completely unique situation," said Alexander Gruzdev, director of the Wrangel Island nature reserve where the encounter in September happened. Climate change means ice, where polar bears are most at home, is melting earlier in the year and so polar bears have to spend longer on land, scientists say.
