It was a false alarm!

Earlier today we mentioned a security van outside our office, which had developed an electrical fault.

Its alarm was broadcasting the message: “Help! Help! Security van under attack! Please call police!”

We thought we had made it clear in what we wrote that it was a false alarm, but we understand that some other members of the media have taken this seriously and are pursuing a front page story about an armed robbery in Montrose.

In fact, so obvious was it that it was a false alarm, nobody even called police.

So once more time, fellow news-hounds - THERE IS NO STORY!

Sigh ...
