Description

'Mattress Falls Off Truck Into Kidderminster Road'... 'Man Stole Tortoise To Pay For Booze'... 'Aquatic Centre Roof Sag Explained'...

Every week Britain's local newspapers bring their investigative skills to stories of vital historical importance. While global conflicts rage, the local paper looks closer to home to the events that really matter.

These can be as diverse as animal news ('Smug Swans Attack Dalmatian'), human peril ('Man Found Nailed To Bench'), domestic crisis ('Oven Removed From Home'), or disaster avoided ('No Flood Warnings for North Somerset').

Whitstable Mum in Custard Shortage is the first book to collect and celebrate these triumphs of British journalism - from surreal billboard headlines to the full text of the classic articles. If you like QI and The News Quiz, you'll love this book.

And the next time there's a seismic global news event, just remember: somewhere a local reporter is crafting 500 words on the 'Youth Found In Phone Box With Fork', while their fellow hack is collecting 'Tributes As Popular Lichfield Cat Dies'...
