Good Day for female fireflies, as scientists discovered that they imitate the mating flashes of a different species in order to lure males of that species into their grasp; then they eat them.

Bad Day for Sompong Luedtahan, a Vietnamese taxi-driver who became a hero a month ago for returning 19 million baht (pounds 350,000) to a French passenger who left the money in his cab at the airport.

Sompong has now turned himself in to the police and admitted it was all a hoax conducted "for fun" and in the hope of receiving a reward.
