Crackdown on lunar-filled crime (via BBC News)
Extra police officers are to patrol the streets of Brighton on nights when there is a full moon.
It follows research by the Sussex force which concluded there was a rise in violent incidents when the moon was full - and also on paydays.
[Insp Andy Parr] told the BBC: "From my experience, over 19 years of being a police officer, undoubtedly on full moons, we do seem to get people with, sort of, stranger behaviour - more fractious, argumentative."
