Shergar's been missing, presumed RIP for over 30 years

Norfolk - A quasi-archaeological dig near Anmer Hall is closing in on equine remains possibly belonging to missing legendary wonder horse Shergar.

The 1981 Epsom Derby and European Horse of the Year winner was put through some extraordinary rendition by the IRA before being dumped in 1983 close to Sandringham House, the Queen's private seat in Norfolk.

This morning gardeners preparing winter kale beds bordering the excavations had to unexpectedly down tools as a shallow grave suddenly popped up in a spot reserved for this year's January King [a cabbage].

A bit more prodding has revealed animal bones, metal horseshoes and rusted remains of a shotgun arranged - as if in a satanic ritual - in the shape of a large swastika. Yeah.

Local radio station Norfolk Live! briefly reported on the discovery before an official MoD news blackout erased all links to the Shergar story.

Catch aerial footage of the excavations on tonight's edition of Gardeners World.

Make queen mudder's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
