Drinking beverages on the go without spilling them can be a task all in itself, and that’s even without adding alcohol into the mix.
Top-heavy wine glasses are notorious for causing spillages, whether you’re travelling or sat comfortably at home or in a bar/restaurant, and wine is one of the last things you want to be spilling too.
It’s just a recipe for disaster sometimes.
If this sounds like a situation you’re unfortunately all too familiar with, then you’ll be pleased to know that online gifting retailer Prezzybox is selling a portable wine glass that’s combined with a sip cup and the design of it is just absolutely genius.
The Portable Wine Glass is “the perfect picnic partner and festival friend, with a lid that keeps it super safe from spillages and annoying bugs”.
According to the product description, the cup has “double-walled thermal technology” which is designed to keep your cold drinks nice and cool in the hot sun, and also keep your red wine at a suitable room temperature.
There’s a selection of bright colours available, but do note that these are allocated at random.
It’s a 4/5 customer rated product and there’s plenty of positive five star reviews from happy customers over the years, so if you’ve been wondering whether it’s worth the buy or not, it may be a good idea to have a read through a few of those to help make your mind up.
One satisfied customer review reads: “I brought this for my partner and this is perfect. Can be used in the car as a passenger or in the garden and [you] don’t have to worry about flies getting into the wine.”
Another said: “It’s a brilliant invention and my husband says that he will get a lot of use out of it”.
“Wine on the go. It’s [great] to drink wine in the park on picnics and when we travel by train. They are practical and beautiful” commented another.
If this genius invention sounds like something you could make pretty good use of, then the Portable Wine Glass is available to get your hands on for only £9.99+ delivery from the Prezzybox website here.
Body found at Bolton restaurant and suspected cannabis farm days after fire
A body has been found at the site of a fire in Bolton, days after a blaze ripped through a restaurant.
It’s believed that the fire started on the first floor of the property, with early inquiries suggesting it may have been used as a cannabis farm.
Human remains were found at the premises on Bolton Road in Farnworth.
A criminal investigation is now underway and Greater Manchester Police are appealing for information and footage relating to the incident.
Emergency services had first been called to the area at around 1pm on Monday 27 November, to reports of a fire.
Earlier today, Saturday 2 December, a body was found during a search of the restaurant building, days after the fire.
Detective Chief Inspector Andrew Naismith of GMP Major Incident Team said: “Work is ongoing to identify the deceased and we are committed to ensuring the potential family members are fully supported and informed of updates in this investigation.
“The loss of life is a tragedy and I understand the upset this news will cause in the local community. I can assure you on behalf of the investigation team that we are determined to get to the bottom of what has occurred and establish the circumstances surrounding the fire.
“I can confirm this fire is being treated as suspicious and if there is any criminal responsibility, it will be brought to light and dealt with appropriately. We are particularly interested to hear from anyone who knows how this building was being used in the lead up to 27 November 2023.
“I would also like to appeal to anyone with information about the fire itself – including if you have any footage (such as CCTV, mobile or dashcam) – to contact GMP’s Major Incident Team.”

Tameside police officers hailed ‘absolute heroes’ after saving the life of a seven-year-old girl
Two Tameside police officers have been hailed as “absolute heroes” after saving the life of a seven-year-old little girl.
It comes after emergency services were called to an address in the Greater Manchester borough of Tameside earlier this week (29 November), and found a young girl who was struggling to breath and coughing up blood after choking on a sweet.
Police Constables Aaron Kincaid and James Blundell, from Greater Manchester Police‘s (GMP) Tameside division, were first on the scene.
To the huge relief of the girl’s parents, who were said to be “understandably distressed” and concerned for her welfare, PC Kincaid jumped straight into action and was able to utilise his first aid training to full effect by going on to successfully dislodge the sweet from the youngster’s throat, and then helping to calm her down before the paramedics arrived.
Whilst PC Kincaid looked after the little girl, PC Blundell did “everything he could” to help the parents remain calm.
Paramedics then took over once they arrived, and the young girl was taken to hospital as a precaution.
Reflecting on the incident, and hailing his officers “absolute heroes”, Superintendent Mike Walsh, from GMP’s Tameside district, said: “PCs Aaron Kincaid and James Blundell acted without hesitation during the incident, and took control of the situation that they were faced with.
“They deserve every credit for staying calm under extreme pressure and for working together as a team and utilising their training to lifesaving effect, and I’m sure the girl’s parents and family will consider them to be absolute heroes.”
“We’re both glad that we were in the right place at the right time,” PC Kincaid added.
“I have a daughter the same age as the little girl who needed our help, and I cannot tell you how much of a relief it was when she started breathing normally and said she was okay after I had managed to dislodge the sweet.
