East Anglia Daily Times: Tebbit apologises for pub madness
I've read through this story a couple of times now, and still have no idea what is going on. I honestly thought that Tebbit was dead, although living in Bury St Edmunds is much the same thing.

Blackpool Gazette: Hotel owners furious over housing plans
And, frankly, there's nobody more angry in this world than a Blackpool hotel owner. You have to pass special angry exams before you are allowed to open a Blackpool hotel.
Note judicious cropping of the photo to exclude not-angry-at-all hangers-on.
Spotter: Mark Palmer

Newsday: Pensioner's ball-busting fury over pothole repairs
I see his point. Take that bump at speed and who knows what Final Destination gore and bloodshed will result. Blokes with walking frames: WATCH YOUR SPEED

Ipswich Evening Star: Defiant dog owner goes to war over shit
I don't know who's angriest in this picture - Angry Dog Owner or Angry Dog Owner's dog.
All we know is that it is not Ken Dodd's dad's dog. Because Ken Dodd's dad's dog's dead.
Oxford Mail: Far too many babies upset over lap-dancing club
There are far, far too many babies in this shot, and shame on ANYONE who is not carrying their offspring. I imagine Baby Jesus is pretty upset, too.
Angry people count: 28, including angry babies, but not including people in background whose angry status is unknown
Spotter: Suzanne Peedell
Reading Evening Post: Local pressure group to close because of lack of angry people
I only include this picture on these pages because those are the angriest pair of shoes I have seen in a long, long time. And I should know: My Aunty Carol used to work in a shoe shop.

Newcastle Herald (Australia): Residents campaign against public housing plans
Ah, angry Australians - signs, pointing, the whole nine yards.

Bexley News Shopper: Commuters angry over train cutbacks

Reading Evening Post: Stolen bike puts charity ride on hold
And what better way to illustrate your anger over a stolen bicycle than to be photographed holding a picture of the thing whilst shaking your fist at the camera? Curse you, bike thieves!

Middlewich Guardian: Cash shortage hits plans for swan fence
I would point out she will be even angrier when she finds out she's on the wrong side of the fence and trapped in there with all those break-your-arm-with-a-flag-of-their-wing swans.
Spotter: Maria Cooke

Waltham Forest Guardian: Council to keep cash from illegal box junction
A subtle variation on the pointing-at-something genre: pointing-at-something-with-a-tape-measure-while-standing-in-the-middle-of-the-road.

First sight on these pages of the Lesser Spotted Thumbs Down
East Anglia Daily Times: Kids' anger as thieves strike nursery
That's some proper angry gurning by the kids, there. If you ask me, the one at the front in the stripy jumper is more-or-less ready to wreak his awful revenge right now.
Spotter: Nat Bocking

Wirral Globe: Mum charged extra because birthday card had badge on
Angriest. Hand. Ever.
Spotter: David Tutssel
Waltham Forest Guardian: Half-finished road 'an insult' say residents
That's not an insult. An insult is the council changing the name of the street to Gary Glitter Gardens, just for the shits and giggles.

Macclesfield Express: Man seething over 'terrorist' gaffe
How do we know this man isn't a terrorist? Where's the proof? This could all be a superb double-bluff and his name really is Al-Jazeera Terrorist. Got anything to say, Simon - or should we say 'Al'?
(Our legal advisers tell us that we have to make it clear this gentleman is NOT a terrorist. Neither does he like the luxury chocolate eclairs they sell in M&S)
Spotter: Derek the Dog
Bournemouth Echo: Teens 'assaulted by market trader' after theft claims
He might be an innocent man, but the kid at the front is unspeakably angry.

Newcastle Evening Chronicle: Not-angry-at-all woman tells of armed raid horror
Yes. She's not angry at all, but this one's included for the sheer "WTF?!" value.
I am sure you will join me by saying: WTF?!
Oxford Mail: Tyre thefts 'wheely' mystifying
Dear Sherlock Holmes, I think you'll find that the missing tyre you're after is attached to the wheel. You're leaning on it.
Your pal, Duck (Scary)
Macclesfield Express: Comic Relief pupils sent home
The classic local newspaper "Fed up" pose, used to great effect by the greatest newspaper on the planet.

Ipswich Evening Star: OAP's anger at ticket for sun-bleached parking permit
"They advised me to put my badge where the sun doesn't shine!"

Southampton Daily Echo: OAPs' fury as supermarket blocks path
Loses marks for "trouble in store" punnery, wins them all back for sheer volume of enraged OAPs
A competition – how many angry people can you fit in one picture? While this pic has an impressive body count, my current record is 31, plus a dog.
Spotter: Jessica Gooch
Macclesfield Express: Residents angry at new phone mast
Where would this site be without the Macc Express? Another from their impressive archives on locals scared they're getting their brains microwaved. As if holding a radio transmitter to their head hasn't done that already. Which it hasn't.
Spotter: Derek the Dog

Southend Echo: Chinese takeaway denies keeping cats in freezer
"Nope, no cats at all. Keep it down, Fido."
We would like to point out - for legal reasons - that despite the flip tone of the above comment, there are no dogs in the freezer, either. Or hamsters. Or rat-onna-stick.
Bournemouth Echo: Lapland New Forest rip-off
Never in the history of Angry People in Local Newspapers have so many people queued up to be angry in local newspapers. The reason? Fifty-quid-a-throw tickets for Lapland New Forest, which turned out to be a pile of turds, gently steaming in a field just outside Bournemouth.
We look forward to this year's chancers trying the same con.
