Even the BBC News 24 ticker acknowledged nothing much was happening
A lack of news in Petersfield has forced a local newsrag to use a woman having a haircut as the top story on its revamped website.
Petersfield Proust reporters did their best to build up the 'story' by saying the woman deserved her new hairdo because she had three kids to look after - but this was far from convincing (especially to other mums).
Hopefully more news will be forthcoming in the next few days, or we may have to resort to a mutliple choice news story involving the queue at the post office, more housebuilding plans, and pedestrianisation in the High Street...
"Please God somebody do something interesting," moaned a passing reader.
