Short, balding, millionaire Paul Daniels is on the run, with his son, Mr. Gary Daniels (Jnr) who is in hot water with the fuzz for running an inflatable rabbit farm in Holmfirth, with the intent of supplying his father with rabbits that would mysteriously disappear inside his magic top hat.
The rabbits would then be inflated using a hidden gas canister sewn into the brim of the hat, to give the impression that they had magically reappeared.
He was also dealing with the trading of legs. It was revealed exclusively to The Daily Strumpet that the legs were used on a nightly basis to restore the legs that Paul would cut off as part of his magic act.
The Governor of Slade Prison, Mad Frankie Fraser, in a press conference revealed more:
"Paul Daniels had suggested to me that he perform an impromptu Magic Night at Slade Prison G2 Wing (crimes against the Magic Circle.)
"At the end of the evening Mr. Daniels asked for a volunteer to enter his magical cabinet. At this point, Paul and Gary slipped into the cabinet, and disappeared from the prison.
"The problems that can be caused by malignant magicians in our communities, cannot be exaggerated. Take for example the case of Jack Vs The Giant (Edwards Vs Trouserfog, 1843.) The resulting damage to the economy of a 12 ton gold egg took nearly a decade to smooth out."
