Fantastic Headlines, No 8

Thanks to my friend John Ritchie for posting this story on Facebook. I’d never have found this otherwise. From the Daily Telegraph, a newspaper you wouldn’t normally associate with OTT headlines. This one is a real gem though:

“Transvestite had sex with a dog at English heritage castle”

The tag line tells us that the, ahem, incident actually took place in the moat. Maybe that’s why Douglas Hogg claimed so much money to clean them out?

For those feeling uneasy about going round castles now have no fear, because:

A spokesman for English Heritage said: “This was a very rare incident”.

I should bloody well hope so.
