Whitstable Mum in Custard Shortage

Publisher:Penguin Books Ltd

The funniest, quirkiest stories from Britain's finest local newspapers - from 'dead man found in graveyard' to 'Welsh bungalow has neat garden' - in “Whitstable Mum in Custard Shortage”. Every week Britain's local journalists bring their investigative skills to stories of vital historical importance. While global conflicts rage, the local newspaper looks closer to home to the events that really matter. These stories range from animal news ('Smug Swans Attack Dalmatian') to people in peril ('Man Found Nailed To Bench'), and from domestic dramas ('Oven Removed From Home') to near-misses ('No Flood warnings for North Somerset'). “Whitstable Mum in Custard Shortage” is the first book to collect and celebrate these triumphs of British communities. The next time there's a global news event, just remember: somewhere a local reporter is crafting 500 words on the 'Youth Found In Phone Box With Fork', while their fellow hack is collecting 'Tributes As Popular Lichfield Cat Dies'...""Just genius! This is my new favourite coffee book"". (Fearne Cotton, BBC Radio 1). “A heavenly collection of cuts and headlines. Reminds us of the utter bliss that is local news”.(Rachel Johnson, “Evening Standard”, Books of the Year). ""I love these sensational headlines our newspapers have produced...fantastic! It's a great book"". (Nicky Campbell, 5 Live).
