UK's Air Traffic Control system "NATS" is to be moved in its entirety to a back bedroom of a former bricklayer.

The offices will be moved from it's current base in Southampton to Derek O'Reilly's bedroom on the Isle of Mull.

In his weekly brief, Alan Cedric, Minister for Transport broke the news. When interviewed on Sky News, Mr Cedric said "due to an unforeseen technicality" we realised that we hadn't budgeted for an extra £3bn. This meant that we couldn't afford the current facilities. Contingency plans were quickly launched, and at great haste, Mr O'Reilly decided to step forward and help out his country.

"We are incredibly grateful to him. We don't know what we would have done otherwise. Other solutions would have included placing Air Traffic control on a Yacht or we may have had to make a new building out of Sticklebricks."

When questioned how the several thousand staff will fit into a room 10 feet by 10 feet square, Mr Cedric said "Oh, we'll deal with that when we have to. But for now, let's pat everyone on the back for a job well done."
