A member of pool staff, Lisa-Marie Theunissen, said she asked the men to be quiet after her customers had complained.

Pokemon Go has become a global phenomenon, and one that has given us all the chance to live out our monster-catching dreams since it was released last month. But for all its joys, there’s always the nagging feeling that the Pokemon that you’re catching in your local area are ALWAYS the same.

Here’s a ranking of the top 10 UK attractions to find rare Pokemon, according to attractiontix.co.uk .

By Giles Elgood and Costas Pitas LONDON (Reuters) - Shockwaves from Britain's vote to leave the European Union are reverberating through the economy, with surveys published on Thursday showing a dive in consumer confidence and a slowdown in construction. Preparing for a Brexit-related slowdown, Lloyds Banking Group said it would cut 3,000 jobs and one of Britain's biggest car dealerships, Inchcape, predicted growth in new car registrations would slow. Just over a month after the referendum, the latest signals of an economic slowdown are likely to fuel expectations of action from the Bank of England on Aug. 4, when many economists believe it will cut interest rates and might start buying bonds again.

Petitjean was born in France's Vosges region, near the German border, according to the prosecutor's office.
By Matt Siegel SYDNEY (Reuters) - A home flight simulator owned by the pilot of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 was used to plot a course to the southern Indian Ocean where the aircraft is believed to have gone missing, the Australian agency in charge of the search said on Thursday.

By Andrew MacAskill and Lawrence White LONDON (Reuters) - Lloyds Banking Group said on Thursday it would step up its cost cutting plans to help to offset a more testing economic environment caused by Britain's vote to quit the European Union. Britain's largest retail bank aims to save 400 million pounds ($528.56 million) by end-2017 by axing a further 3,000 jobs and closing an additional 200 branches to protect its earnings and dividends against the effects of lower-for-longer interest rates. Lloyds, rescued in a 20.5 billion pound taxpayer bail-out during the financial crisis, is the first major British bank to report results since the referendum and is the most exposed to any downturn in the British economy.

By Tim Hepher and Cyril Altmeyer PARIS (Reuters) - Airbus Group took a 1.4 billion euro (£1.1 billion) hit for problems with Europe's troubled A400M troop plane and its A350 jetliner on Wednesday, clouding better than expected quarterly profits. Delays in deliveries of another keenly awaited jet, the revamped A320neo jetliner, which competes with Boeing's upcoming 737 MAX, also weighed on Europe's largest aerospace group, whose core profits fell 4 percent in the second quarter. Airbus Group posted 1.03 billion euros of charges for the A400M following gearbox problems and fuselage cracks and 385 million for the A350, whose deliveries have been held up by shortages of seats and, most recently, botched toilet doors.
British house prices rose at their fastest annual pace in four months in July, in data that might not yet reflect any impact from June's vote to leave the European Union, mortgage lender Nationwide said on Thursday. "The outlook for the housing market remains unusually uncertain and it may take several months for the underlying trends in the market to become evident," Nationwide economist Robert Gardner said. Nationwide said house prices rose 5.2 percent in July compared, edging up from 5.1 percent in June.

GlaxoSmithKline (Amsterdam: GO8.AS - news) (GSK) has announced a £275m investment in its UK manufacturing sites, saying the country remains "attractive" despite the Brexit vote. The company, which is the UK's largest drugmaker, had argued against the prospect of an exit from the European Union ahead of the referendum. It said that included the so-called 'patent box' which boosts profits from patented innovations by halving the rate of corporation tax - a tax relief that has faced opposition from Labour.
In a desperate time Chris Froome once resorted to a desperate measure. As the now three-time Tour de France winner revealed in his autobiography, "The Climb," Froome once impersonated a Kenyan cycling official, using the man's email username and password to get his résumé into the right hands. It was 2006, and Froome, who was born and raised in Nairobi, was racing as an amateur for Kenya's national cycling federation.

Spectacular aerial footage of a three-day feeding frenzy has been captured off the coast of Western Australia, with over 30 sharks tearing into a whale carcass. While on a fishing trip on July 4, father and son Grant and Sam Eastland captured footage of a school of what they believe to be tiger sharks feasting on a dead whale. They told Australia’s 7 News the sharks were there for three days. Around the three-minute mark, the carcass makes it to shore, with many of the sharks following. At one point, one of the sharks ends up on land on its back, and begins thrashing to get back in the ocean. Sam even gets close enough to touch its tail. Credit: Imagery from Above
By Ben Hirschler LONDON (Reuters) - GlaxoSmithKline plans 275 million pounds of new investments at three drug manufacturing sites in Britain, signalling its confidence in the country despite last month's vote to leave the European Union. The decision came as Britain's biggest drugmaker reported better-than-expected quarterly earnings on Wednesday, buoyed by new drug sales and currency gains from a falling pound, which it said could pump up full-year results by 19 percent. GSK, which had argued against Brexit before the referendum, said the UK remained an attractive place for making medicines, thanks to a skilled workforce and relatively low tax rates.
