the fake Dursley residance on fire.

What was meant to be a harmless April Fools joke for Harry went terribly wrong resulting in both the young actor and his adoptive mother critically ill in a London hospital.

The naughty prankers decided to fakely burn down his own family home, Number 4, Privet Drive, Little Whinging in Surrey. With his millions he paid for a complete replica of their house to be built three streets away and then torched it for the prank of a life time.

Before Harry could yell 'April Fools' tough, Mrs Dursley, who thought her house was on fire ran had already run into the fake house to save her precise fruit bowl. Harry yelled over and over again but his mother could not hear him as the burning flames engulfed her lifeless body. When his mother hadn't come out for 5 minutes Potter got worried and ran in to save her.

Fortunately the fire brigade stepped in and fished the actor and his mother out just in time before they burnt to a crisp and they were rushed to hospital.

"It was a terrible trick for Harry to play." Said Fred the fireman who bravely went into the fake fire "But he gave us all an a million pound tip for saving them so we can't complain."

News just in - Harry's adoptive mum Petunia Dursley has just died from her extensive burns this means Harry will be facing yet another murder charge.

What a price to pay for an April fools joke!
