Staffers today expressed concerns over the mental health of London Mayor, Boris Johnson, after he dived into a river in Lewisham screaming that he was gagging for some fish.
Johnson, present to promote an environmental initiative relating to cleaning up the nation's waterways suddenly became overwhelmed by the desire to eat some fish.
A bystander told us:
"He was all right one minute, laughing and joking with the press, but then he told one of his people that he really could do with eating some fish."
Johnson then apparently dove into the water trying to catch a fish.
Single mother of sixteen, Tracey Goodlay told us:
"He just lost it. It's disgusting. That bloke should be an example to us all. Not a fish fiend."
Johnson is not alone in his fish fetish, as it was revealed that North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il also likes gobbling live fish.
The Association of British Fish Friers applauded Johnson's unusual actions, saying that fish are really nice to eat. Especially with chips.
More fish related frippery as we get it.
