"I felt like a child" admits Thompson

The BBC has issued a hasty apology for it's coverage of the hosepipe ban which started today in the South of England.

During the 10pm broadcast, it was reported that water shortages were due to 'exceptionally' dry winters. Only 'a tiny' 200mm of rain had fallen compared to the average 'deluge' of 201mm. The BBC now fully accepts that implying 5 minutes of extra sunshine was sufficient to drain our reservoirs was misleading.

Suprising some, they now admit that water shortages had in fact been caused by exceptionally high numbers of tourists extending their holidays and studies from 2 weeks up to 10 years in some cases.

The soon to depart Mark Thompson confided "We got our maths wrong on this. Nobody takes baths any more, pipes are being fixed, gardens have been decked over and washing machines are much for eco-friendly than before."

"Our microphones picked up 5 million more toilet flushes this morning in West London, than on the same day in 1992 - and that can't be just down to diet."
