It’s a Twister


The people of Petersfield were terrorised by high winds yesterday as a tornado swept through the area.

Trees were uprooted, fences blown over, countless buildings damaged and a hot air balloon torn from its moorings and blown out of sight.

The owner of the balloon, Professor Marvel, was asked by the police in which direction it had disappeared, and, appearing somewhat dazed, he said: “Away above the chimney tops." Asked if he could be a little more helpful he added: “Somewhere over the rainbow."

The professor was taken to the local hospital for tests.

Although no-one was badly injured one woman, Dorothy Gale, rang the police to report that she had lost her little dog. Ms Gale scoured the local area after the storm has subsided calling: “Come out, come out, wherever you are” but to no avail.

The appropriately named Ms Gale described the dog as: "A scruffy little rat-sized pooch, with an annoying yap, that answers to the name of Toto."

Anyone finding the dog should contact Dorothy, or in her absence, her Aunty Em on 01730 020202.
