Not The Greatest Image But The Best We Could Come Up With Under The Circumstances.

Eddie Gimp, of Basingstoke got quite a surprise when he cleaned out his attic last week, when he found Picasso hiding out up there.

"I thought he was dead," Gimp told us. "But it seems not. There he was, large as life, hiding in my attic, where he's been hiding for years, Pablo Picasso."

It is thought that the Spanish born artist, famous for his impressionist art and in particular his portrait of Guernica, fled to Gimp's attic to get away from the hassle of being a famous living artist. It remains unclear how Picasso got into the UK, or why he selected the Gimp's Basingstoke attic as a hiding place, but reliable sources have confirmed that the man is actually Pablo Picasso.

"He's quite an old man now," Kim Gimp, Eddie's wife told us. "He's lost a bit of weight and he's quite pale through all those years of hiding out up in our attic, but he was no trouble. He doesn't speak much English, but he joined us this morning for a nice cup of tea and a Hob-Nob. Aah bless him."

Picasso declined to comment.

More as we get it.
