This is the charming moment a cow tries to keep up with several horses running through a field in Alabama. 

The footage, from March 2017, shows the calf running after several horses in Mountain View, Arkansas. 

Unsurprisingly, the cow, named Annabelle, is unable to keep up with the horses, who have not been identified.

Pensioner, 71, reveals how he was scammed out of his £330,000 life savings

pensioner 71 reveals how he was scammed out of his 330000 life savings

A pensioner who was scammed out of his £330,000 life savings has revealed that it’s like being ‘stabbed in the heart’ but confessed that he still didn’t tell his children ‘for four years’ to avoid their devastation.

British OAP Dennis appeared on ITV’s Tonight investigation Scams: Ripping off the Elderly?, last night, to talk about his traumatic experience for the first time publicly.

The house surveyor, who has been forced to continue to work because of his loss in savings, was contacted in 2015 by a person pretending to be a staff member from Dennis’ bank. 

He was told that internal fraudsters were trying to hack into his bank and that he should move his money to a safer account that had already been set up in his name – with the man even providing most of Dennis’ details.

Dennis moved across his £330,000 life savings but was distraught to discover he had been scammed – with the money disappearing.

Speaking on the show, Dennis said: ‘It’s almost as if you’ve been stabbed through the heart because you’ve lost a huge chunk of money through no fault of your own.

‘And there’s no way of getting it back unless outside sources are persuaded to let you have your money back.’ 

He added: ‘I lost sleep, I was very thin. For four years I didn’t tell the children because of the devastation it would make.

‘The people who are trying to defraud us are very, very sophisticated. It can happen to anyone and it happened to me.’ 

Dennis received a call on his mobile which he thought was from his bank but it was a spoof caller – despite the unidentified man shockingly knowing some of Dennis details beforehand.

The caller claimed he was investigating internal bank fraud and sounded ‘very plausible’, according to Dennis.

The pensioner was told that fraudsters inside the bank were trying to hack into his account and that he should move his money to a safer one that had already been set up in his name.

Dennis moved across his £330,000 life savings but was distraught to later discover he had been scammed – with the pensioner never finding the money again.

The house surveyor should be enjoying his retirement but has had to continue working because of the ‘hole in his savings’. 

Today, victims of push payment fraud should be protected if their banks are signed up to a certain scheme.

A push payment scam is where victims are tricked into transferring money, often by criminals posing as their bank, the police, a builder or even the taxman. Others are convinced into spending money on goods or investments that don’t exist.

Dennis (pictured with a loved one) was told that fraudsters were trying to hack into his bank and that he should move his money to a safer account that had already been set up in his name - with the man even providing most of Dennis' details

Financial investigator Jack Buster told Tonight that he believes Dennis should’ve been alerted as he used a special bank transfer called Chaps (Clearing House Automated Payment System) – which is used to carry out same-day electronic payments for large amounts – and said banks have a duty of care. 

Back in 2017 the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) – which was established by Parliament to help people when they have problems with financial businesses – ruled the bank wasn’t at fault. 

Jack said: ‘Dennis was able to instruct his bank to send money to what he thought was himself of course, it wasn’t. It was in a different name. 

‘But his bank should’ve pointed this out to him, that there was a risk of fraud.’ Jack argues the FOS should reopen Dennis’ case: ‘They failed Dennis… this is rough justice and I think Dennis deserves another shot.’

‘This is something that’s happened to me, and to other people, where we haven’t done anything wrong. We’ve been outwitted by people who are professionals.. and they’ve got to be stopped,’ said Dennis.

A spokesperson from the Financial Ombudsman Service told the Tonight show: ‘The Financial Ombudsman Service was established by Parliament to help people when they have problems with financial businesses. 

‘We make decisions based on what is fair and reasonable for each individual complaint we see. Before we reach a decision, both parties have every opportunity to provide information or make arguments which they would like us to consider. 

‘Once a case has been closed, if a customer feels that new evidence has come to light that was not considered at the time, they should get in touch with us and we will see if we can help.’

Cheshire home of Keith Hopwood of Herman’s Hermits is for sale for £1.75m

cheshire home of keith hopwood of hermans hermits is for sale for 1 75m

From the outside, it paints a picture of a peaceful, quintessential English countryside home with sash windows and landscaped gardens.

The Grade II listed property sits in 10 acres of land in Cheshire with Beeston and Peckforton castles in the background.

But the inside of this property for sale has proved to be far less sedate, having seen its fair share of a rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle over the years.

This is because, for the past three decades, it has been owned by the 1960s rock star Keith Hopwood – of the band Herman’s Hermits, which rubbed shoulders with The Beatles and sold more than 80million records in the late sixties.

Mr Hopwood has a music studio at the property and famous faces that have walked across its floors include Jason Donovan, Stacy Solomon, and Neil Morrissey.

Mr Hopwood has lived at the property called Hulgrave Hall for the past 30 years and has now put it on the market with a guide price of £1.75million via estate agents Jackson-Stops.

Aside from the band, Mr Hopwood founded a successful music company called Pluto Music, which is behind the sound tracks for shows such as Bob the Builder and Roald Dalh’s The B.F.G, which were composed from the studio at his home. 

Those who have used the studio include Neil Morrissey as Bob the Builder.

Mr Hopwood exclusively told MailOnline Property: ‘What was once a Georgian farmhouse for a working farm has become the most fantastic home for my family and I over the last 32 years. 

‘Moving from Manchester originally, I had struggled to find a home that ticked all the boxes of being able to accommodate our whole family, having a fantastic outdoor garden and entertaining area as well as having the ideal space to house my own studio for work. 

‘When I saw this property with all those features I knew it was too good an opportunity to pass up.

‘One of my favourite parts of the house are the gardens and grounds that provide beautiful views towards the neighbouring castle. It’s something our visitors always remark on and was certainly appreciated by Jason Donovan who once strolled the grounds while warming up his voice ahead of a recording.’

He went on to explain how ‘long before any celebrities visited this home, the former owners had famous racehorse Red Rum stay in the stables’. 

‘The property boasts an incredible history and if these walls could talk I’m sure they would have some fantastic tales to tell,’ he said.

‘The location is perfect, with acres of green in sight, yet an easy commute into London and neighbouring villages. 

‘We’re sad to be leaving but I’m sure that the next homeowners will love this home just as much and continue to add to its fantastic history.’
