Then at the 2014 New York Auto Show, the Versa received a facelift for the 2015 model year. While the Versa is impressively affordable, it’s never been one of our favorites and it feels out-of-date compared to its competition.With the April 12 debut putting the Versa’s reveal right before the start of New York Auto Show press days, we should get a chance to see the new car in the Big Apple, too. Either way, check back with Roadshow for full details and photos once the 2020 Nissan Versa is revealed.

Nissan Carmakers increasingly use special events to introduce new cars away from the hubbub of international auto shows, and it appears Nissan will follow that route with its smallest sedan. Nissan announced Thursday that it will reveal the new 2020 Versa at the Tortuga Music Festival in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on April 12.While the teaser photo and video hint at the introduction happening on or at least near the beach, there are few other clues about the 2020 Nissan Versa. The company says only that the sedan has been “completely redesigned,” signaling an all-new model rather than a refresh of the existing Versa.

Kangana Ranaut was an actor on the sets of Mental Hai Kya

first_imgKangana RanautInstagramYesterday, media was flooded with reports stating that ‘Kangana Ranaut has been interfering with the shooting of Mental Hai Kya and that she has been unhappy with some of the scenes, which had to be re-shot, thus causing the delay in the release of the movie.However, director of Mental Hai Kya, Prakash Kovelamudi has rubbished these reports.”On my set, Kangana was an actor; a professional one, and a creative asset. Both Kangana and Rajkummar are powerhouse performers, whom I enjoyed directing. I am happy to see how their characters have turned out. Mental Hai Kya is an intriguing thriller with doses of quirk. The film challenges the norms, and I am thrilled to bring to the audience something original,” the director said in a statement.Further denying the reports about some portions of the film being re-shot, the director said, “We finished the first leg in Mumbai, the second in London, and the last one in Mumbai again. The final schedule was wrapped last month. That’s all! All other conjecture is baseless.”Produced by Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor and Shaailesh R Singh, Mental Hai Kya’s trailer is scheduled to be launched later this month and the film will hit the screens on July 26, 2019.last_img read more

And the majority of the public are opposed to the rail industry’s plans for increased competition on the railways with rival firms running routes in direct competition to each other. The poll of 1,000 rail users comes in the wake of changes to the London Northwestern Railway’s service. The service – when it was operated by London Midland – stopped at Stoke Station. But it has now vanished from the Stoke-on-Trent timetable. The direct route to London was popular because it was cheaper than services run by Virgin Trains but it will no longer pass through the Potteries, To reach London via an alternative to Virgin, travellers have to go via Birmingham or get to to Stafford to catch the train that still does take the direct line to London.

Send your videos to video@trinitymirror.com Most, 45 per cent, said rail fares would be cheaper under public ownership with 19 per cent fearing they would be more expensive. And 56 per cent say railways should be run in the public sector, with 19 per cent saying they should be privately run and 24 per cent unsure. The poll – carried out earlier this month – found almost half of the respondents think that private train firms don’t have their best interests at heart. And just 29 per cent support plans from the Rail Delivery Group, which represents rail firms, for increased competition on the railways. The RDG has been calling for Open Access Rail, where rail companies would compete in delivering services on the same route. The new poll provides an insight into public attitudes towards rail privatisation before the government’s consultation on the running of our railways closes later this week. It found that a majority of the public believe the railways would be better value for money if they were publicly owned. Ellen Lees, of We Own It said:“Private rail companies have been lobbying hard for more private involvement and increased competition on our railways.

Tinkerbell and Bob the Builder removed from flight for being unruly

first_imgTags: Disney, Ryanair, Stanstead Share Posted by Monday, August 20, 2018 Tinkerbell and Bob the Builder removed from flight for being unrulycenter_img << Previous PostNext Post >> Travelweek Group KRAKOW — Tinkerbell has had it up to here with flying, so it seems.A man dressed as the beloved Disney character – green dress, fairy wings and all – was recently escorted off a Ryanair flight by armed police for disruptive behaviour.But here’s the real kicker: Tinkerbell’s companion, Bob the Builder, was also kicked off the plane.The flight was due to take off from Stansted airport to Krakow, Poland last Friday when an unruly Tink “threatened to cut everyone up”, wrote Dan May, a fellow passenger, on Twitter. The unidentified male, who according to reports was on a stag party trip to Krakow, was soon escorted off the plane.Our flight to Krakow hasn’t taken off yet because a man dressed as Tinkerbell has threatened to cut everyone up. This is why you don’t fly Ryanair from Stansted.— Dan May (@dpmay) August 17, 2018According to witnesses, one officer adjusted the man’s wings before arresting him and taking him off the plane with his companion, who was dressed in a Bob the Builder outfit.More news:  Beep, beep! Transat hits the streets with Cubamania truckA Ryanair spokesman said: “Police removed and detained two passengers ahead of this flight from London Stansted to Krakow who were disruptive, before the aircraft departed to Krakow. We will not tolerate unruly or disruptive behaviour at any time and the safety and comfort of our customers, crew and aircraft is our number one priority. This is now a matter for local police.”The incident has renewed calls for implementing a two-drink limit per passenger and no alcohol sales before 10 a.m. at airports.“It’s incumbent on the airports to introduce these preventative measures to curb excessive drinking and the problems it creates, rather than allowing passengers to drink to excess before their flights,” the spokesperson added.The plane departed for Krakow after a short delay. We’re guessing Tinkerbell had to get there the good ol’ fashioned way – with pixie dust.last_img read more
