Wembley Stadium. Home of the English Quidditch heros. Cost a packet but who cares now?

It's all change at the BBC as a new broom looks set to sweep clean.

Brian Plopps, head of sanitation at the world-famous TV Centre told us:

"We have been issued with new brooms and you can be sure that we are going to make a clean sweep all right. There's a nasty dried up Cornish pasty stuck behind a radiator in the staff canteen and it doesn't stand a hope with my new broom"

Captain of the England Quidditch team, Harvey Porter, tells us:

"This is very exciting indeed. We now have a whole new pool of talent, so to speak, to choose from and when we play the final next month, those Smithereens had better look out!"

JK Rowling was unavailable for comment on this startling development but a spokesman for the band told us:

"Yeah like dude! JK's been doing some duets with cats like Brian Ferry and Mick Jagger and the new album's is gonna be well cool. She's even gonna do some publicity shots in the famous hat man! How cool is that?!"

Sports fans up and down the country are said to be delighted, as this development is the biggest thing since Sir Geoff Hurst scored three goals against Accrington Stanley in the 1966 World Cup Final.

Now that was really a sporting achievement to crow about, but of course being a nation of quiet unassuming people we've hardly ever mentioned that. Well no more than 20 billion times.

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