A team of British nuclear Scientists have teamed up with a squadron of Special Agents from the SAS to uncover the most startling weapon ever created. In the wrong hands the weapon could be absolutely lethal but thankfully after months of undercover work, the potential for disaster has been averted.

The Leader of the peace keeping project, Commander Julian Distinguished explained to reporters at a secret meeting place near Watford Services.

'What the team has uncovered today has probably helped to save the Western World as we know it. We've known for some time now that Iraqi insolvents have been building a 'superbomb' but it goes deeper than that. What they were perfecting was, not like we do, with a Guided Missile, they have perfected the Unguided Missile!'

'As the name suggests, it has no known path, off it goes, it could end up knocking on anybody's door. I'm sure you'll agree that's a frightening thought and very unfair. We know they're a nasty piece of work but it's just not cricket.

'To find 15 of these missiles in a lock-up like we did is a miracle. They won't be too chuffed I can tell you that, but we can't rest on our laurels. We may have won the battle today but the fight against terrorism never stops. '
