A full scale lockdown at the Tate Modern Museum kicked in automatically when the curator pressed the security master switch, days after exhibit "Empty Room With Lights Going On And Off" was stolen.

The runner up Turner Prize winning work of art, "Carboard Box Full Of Floor Sweepings In Unused Room" estimated to be worth £20million on the International black market was reported missing by a security stock taker. Fortunately after a cleaner admitted throwing the box away while routinely cleaning the unused rooms, a replacement box was found and the exhibit restored.

The cleaner told us this morning "It is not immediately obvious here in Cloud Cuckoo Land what is rubbish or an empty room and what is a work of art."
