Delivery vans to Barry Island were confused yesterday when it completely disappeared from Sat-Nav systems. The drivers, who use the systems daily because they forget where they are, were found to be driving endlessly around and around local roundabouts. Astoundingly the situation worsened today when the entire place ceased to exist.

A number of new rocks were noticed in the sea near the geographic location of the demolished former Butlins' holiday camp site. Not since the disappearance of the Island of Atlantis has such a big lump of rock vanished. A local said "We are still hoping that Sir Billy Butlin Jr. will re-open the holiday camp, but this is obviously a bit of a setback."

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
