There was drama in Stoke-on-Trent this morning when a woman cleaning her son's bedroom had the shock of her life after she reached under his bed to retrieve what eventually turned out to be an Atom Bomb.
Karen Low-Cal, 46, was tidying-up the messy bedroom of her son, Child C, when the incident happened. She said:
"It was big and heavy, really cold and metallic. I dragged it out from under the bed and had a look at it. There was a dome at one end, and a fin-like tail at the other. It was an Atom Bomb, and I knew immediately that it did not belong to my son."
She went on:
"I wasn't overly-concerned. Despite the fact that one of the most destructive forces upon the Earth was under my son's bed, I was confident he hadn't armed it."
Asked if she'd called in the Army or MI6 Bomb Disposal experts to to deal with the bomb, Karen laughed:
"Neither. I took it to some wasteland, and carried out a controlled detonation myself."
