2012: Good news in video
Good news, good deeds, great stuff.

LET’S FORGET ALL about any bad news in 2012 and concentrate on the good stuff.

Animal rescues, rappers, record-setting and sporting glory.

Here are some of our favourite moments:

The blind dog who was rescued from a pile of rubbish


Heartbreaking but with a wonderful ending
