Amazon Basics USB leadThis week we ordered an Amazon Basics USB leadPC Tips, when it arrived we'd ordered the wrong thing.  Shall we bother sending it back?  Decided yes more out of principle than financial gain.  Went through the return process and at the end Amazon said they'd refunded our credit card but we didn't need to send the lead back ... Merry Christmas eh?

Very early this morning a body was found at a Yoxford house fire.
