Next year April 1st will be a Sunday, not only daylight savings but in my part of the country daylight changes mean tsunami siren testing at 11am. That should be interesting.

The Daily Telegraph did a cover story about Polar Bears being found in Scotland due to ice flows breaking up.

 

Was relatively believable until the bit where they suggested the bears would end up in Glasgow rummaging in city bins for discarded kebabs and haggis....
