Daily Mail's standards are slipping

From The Daily Mail:

Police have sent samples to Porton Down as they probe a major incident after a couple in their 40s were exposed to an unknown substance, it has emerged...

Images from the scene showed a police presence in Muggleton Road, Amesbury, where the pair were found unconscious inside a property on Saturday, while a nearby Baptist church appeared to have been cordoned off.

The address is thought to be on a new housing development on the southern edge of the town, which lies close to Stonehenge...


Here's the bit they missed: "Four-bed detached houses on the estate sell for £410,000".

Police are anxious to interview the mysterious Lord Voldemort.

Let's hope it was the effects of the illegal drugs they allegedly took just before they became ill. If it was, let's also hope they receive the bill from the medics and the Police.

They weren't a father and daughter of Russian extraction by any chance, were they?

D, Lord V is a) a fictional character and b) dead.

PS, we will see.

B, it says 'couple', so clearly not father and daughter (unless they are from Utah), but apart from that, that is the conclusion to which I jumped, rightly or wrongly.

It will turn out to be too much Jif

D, they are muggles and live on Muggleton Road. Can't automatically pin on that on Voldemort.

G, he does it to warn people, hoping Croatian players are paying attention.
