image for Children in Need - Scam to fund Northern Rock?
And how would you like to pay? Visa? Mastercard?

The BBCs 'Children In Need' fund-raising programme ended in confusion this evening, after leaked documents suggested that high-ranking BBC officials and directors of the stricken Northern Rock bank had conspired to divert donations to an offshore Northern Rock account.

It is believed that a number of arrests have been made this evening and it is understood that police have raided the Head Office of Northern Rock and removed a quantitiy of documents and computer discs.

It is likely that share dealing in Northern Rock will be suspended when the Stock Exchange opens on Monday.

No-one at the BBC or Northern Rock was available for comment this evening. It is believed that all directors of the bank are currently abroad.

Make Mike Aldred'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.
