Oops - there goes another.

A climate change film which features exploding children has been withdrawn from an environmental web site after outraging viewers.

The four-minute film was made for environmental organisation 10:10 by director Richard Curtis. It was designed to raise people's awareness of their carbon footprint.

But after howls of outrage on social network sites the film was removed from 10:10's site.

More that 80 per cent of the complaints came from Daily Express readers - famous, of course, for their exploding heads.

Said a web insider: "Many, many of the people who complained said they were Express readers and they felt the film was in bad taste. They added that they had lost loved ones whose heads had exploded while reading the paper."

A Government report last year showed that reading Express or Daily Mail stories about New Labour, immigration, benefit cheats or teenage pregnancy/drug-taking was causing unprecedented numbers of heads to explode.

Sometimes readers achieved temporary relief for their cranial blood vessels by firing off angry "letters to the editor." But prolonged exposure to the papers would almost inevitably lead to head explosion.

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