The Daily: March 5

Written by Natalie Letch
Queen Leaves Hospital
The Queen, following being treated for symptoms of gastroenteritis, has been released from King Edward VII hospital in London yesterday and is already back to work. She was admitted to the hospital on Sunday as a precaution and was expected to be treated for at least two days. The Queens prior engagements included a visit to HMS Lancaster and a two-day trip to Rome had been cancelled but she is now said to be in "good spirits". The 86 year old stayed at the same hospital that was in the centre of a media storm in December that involved the Duchess of Cambridge's' stay alongside the hoax call that resulted in the suicide of nurse, Jacintha Saldanha.

Wedding Gift from Queen Victoria & Prince Albert To Daughter Discovered
A poignant wedding gift from Queen Victoria and Prince Albert to their daughter on her wedding day has been discovered. The gold, pearl, diamond and enamel bracelet had been commissioned as a present for their daughter's wedding but tragically, Albert passed away six months before the wedding. The inscription read, "To dear Alice from her loving parents Albert and Victoria R who though visibly parted are ever united, April 25 1862". It is said to be one of the last significant items commissioned by the couple for any of their children. It is believed to have become misplaced following the Russian Revolution in 1918 and if auctioned could fetch up to £10,000.

Batman's Identity Revealed
The Caped Crusader has been unmasked and no it is not Bruce Wayne, but Stan Warby, a Chinese takeaway delivery driver. The 39 year old who handed over a suspected criminal to police in Bradford last week. The reason for his attire was not to undertake Batman's on our streets yet had been merely dressed up for a football match with suspected criminal, Danny Frayne. Frayne asked Warby to accompany him to the police station to hand himself in as he had been wanted in connection with a series of alleged offences. Frayne was later charged with handling stolen goods and for fraud-related offences. The police commented "Batman came into the helpdesk, stated the staff "I've caught this one for you' and then promptly vanished into the nigh to fight crime in Bradford".

Justin Bieber's Late Appearance Angers Parents
Teen sensation, Justin Bieber appeared on stage at the O2 two hours late last night, beginning his performance at 10:30pm instead of 8:30pm. Members of the audience, mainly consisting of school children and their parents, were left disappointed and angered as they were forced to leave early to avoid missing public transport home. Many had to miss the concert altogether as they had to get to bed for school the following morning. Parents took to Twitter criticising the 19 year old for not even apologising to the audience and for his lack of consideration for his fans who had paid nearly £60 for a ticket to see him. The O2 official Twitter account tweeted at 11:36pm, "Justin Bieber is now on stage and apologises for the lateness of his show". Is this another celebrity who has become lost in showbiz?

The Return of The Polaroid
The iconic Polaroid camera has been reinvented and is set to recapture a new captive audience. Acquiring an 'Instagram' theme (an application used on the Internet to digitally enhance photographs taken on your mobile phone), the instant digital camera has adapted its retro design to embrace modern technology and is set to be a hit amongst vintage and camera fans across the world. Arriving in 2014, the camera will allow the user to take pictures with a range of different filters with the option of being able to upload the images onto social media websites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and e-mail. CEO of Socialmatic, Antonio De Rosa states "This mix of hardware and software, together with our brand new photo social network, will fill the gap between virtuality and reality".
