We can all agree that a good night sleep is priceless, right?
Snoring can really get in the way of that though and according to the latest statistics by the BSSAA, it’s believed that 41.5% of the UK adult population snore.
There are approximately 15 million snorers in the UK, with the the sound of snoring apparently affecting the sleep of around 30 million people and 58% of snorers being between 50-59 years of age.
If any of the above apply to you and all you’re after these days is a simple good night’s sleep, but either yours, or your partner’s snoring just seems to get in the way of that, then we’ve found an genius new anti-snoring device on Amazon and it’s really worth checking out.
The Snooor Anti-Snoring Wearable Device is a “side sleep positional trainer designed for those who snore when they lie on their back” and it can improve snoring patterns in just a matter of days.
According to the product description on Amazon, it works by “attaching the device to your forehead or breastbone, with the accompanied hypoallergenic sticker, and [you will] receive a gentle nudge every time you lie on your back.”
“Over time, you will be trained to sleep on your side, breathe freely and reduce or in many cases eliminate your snoring.”
The device is non-invasive with minimal vibrations, lightweight and simple to use.
It weighs just under 10 grams and was specifically designed to be placed on your forehead, or on your breastbone before sleeping. When you use the device consistently, it’s said that you’ll be able to see the effects after about a week – 10 days and after a few nights, you won’t even notice you’re wearing it.
Each morning, you can view your sleeping position progress by connecting with the free LEFT App, which is available to download on the App Store for iPhone users and on the Play Store for Android devices.
It’s retailing on Amazon at £44.99 + postage/packaging and whilst it must be fairly new product to the Amazon marketplace with limited reviews, each review it does boast is has five stars and highly positive comments satisfied customers, so if you’ve been wondering whether it’s worth the buy or not, have a read of a few of those to help make you’re mind up.
It’s also eligible for Amazon Prime delivery perks too for those subscribed to the service.
If snoring’s been plaguing you, or someone you know for far too long, then you can get the Snooor Anti-Snooring Wearable Device from Amazon here.
Incredible misty drone footage shows how Manchester earned its ‘Manctopia’ nickname
Drone footage captured from way above Manchester shows just how quickly the city has grown – and proves that our hometown is well on its way to earning its ‘Manctopia’ nickname.
Cast your mind back just a few years and you’ll remember that Beetham Tower stuck out like a sore thumb, towering many storeys above the next tallest building.
In fact, until just four years ago, the next-tallest building here was City Tower, which was a good 17 storeys shorter than Beetham Tower.
Then along came Renaker with visions for an entirely new skyscraper neighbourhood – Deansgate Square.
This group of skyscrapers now completely dominate the Manchester skyline, with the tallest building a massive 65 storeys tall.
South Tower is not only the tallest building in Greater Manchester, it’s also the 10th tallest in the entire UK, and the biggest outside of London.
It’s all led to Manchester being coined ‘Manctopia’, the name of a BBC documentary that followed property developers Capital & Centric as they redevelop buildings around the region.
One local photographer has managed to capture the unbelievable scale of our new, ultra-modern city skyline, with drone footage soaring among the skyscrapers.
Known on Instagram as @lef_tsotour, they shared a video taken on a misty Manchester morning.
It captures both Deansgate Square, with sun glinting off the many windows of the towers, and the now-dwarfed Beetham Tower.
You can also see the railway lines snaking through the city centre, cars nipping around the ring road, and the comparatively small apartment blocks around Castlefield.
Commenting on the video, one person said: “This is mint.”
Another wrote: “Fricken love this!!!!”

Question Time audience stunned as first-time buyer says mortgage quote DOUBLED
Thursday night’s Question Time audience could be heard audibly gasping after a fellow crowd member revealed that her mortgage quote had doubled followed the recent mini-budget.
Taping in Manchester on 29 September, the current events and politics programme was discussing property when would-be first-time buyer Rabia revealed that her mortgage offer had jumped from an initial amount of 4.5% interest to a shocking 10.5% in just a matter of days.
As you can see in the incredible clip, both the audience and the panel are taken aback at the revelation.
The Greater Manchester resident said she is desperate to know what the government’s plan for mortgages is as following the latest revision, she says she simply cannot afford to put the money down on her first home.
Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer weighed in on the social media reaction, quote tweeting the clip from his party’s own account and stating that “the Tories must get back to Parliament and reverse their kamikaze budget” as the current economic mess is being “paid for by working people”.
To make matters worse, Rabia was given no clarification from her lenders, only that they were pulling her offers. Conservative MP and Minister for Local Government, Faith and Communities, Paul Scully had little information to offer her either, simply stating it is a short-term effect and that the market will stabilise.
Scully was subject to an entirely different reaction from the audience as well after his blind attempts to defend Prime Minister Liz Truss and Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng were met with laughter. Conversely, Richard Bacon was met with applause after he labelled the mini-budget “absurd”.
As if the anti-Tory sentiment wasn’t already at a high, the chancellor’s mini-budget – which saw the corporations, bankers and the generally wealthy benefit ahead of the working class – has seen fresh calls for a general election to be held as soon as possible.
Beyond declaring a so-called £2,500 limit on energy bills (which many have warned isn’t a guaranteed cap), there was seemingly very little in the way of policy that
For those still unclear as to what was announced in the divisive mini-budget, here is a quick summary:
Speaking in a speech at the Labour conference in Liverpool on Tuesday, Starmer said that the government “haven’t just failed to fix the roof, they’ve ripped out the foundations, smashed the windows and now they’ve blown the doors off for good measure.
