MK Herald Column: Polar Bear scheme “going well”

Adam Lacey, Editor of satirical online newspaper The MK Herald, has three outstanding scoops for his first spoof news page in Celebrate:MK…

Polar bear scheme ‘going well’

The introduction of live polar bears to the ski slope in Milton Keynes has been running smoothly for over a week now.

The bears are surprisingly tame and don’t seem phased by people using the slope.

However, at times they have become a little too relaxed and caused some accidents when laying down for a rest but do seem to “add more realism to the experience.”

Furzton Lake submarine surfaces for the summer

Hundreds of people waited patiently this morning at Furzton Lake for its submarine to make its annual surfacing.

The submarine stays afloat up until late September each year before descending back to the bottom of the lake.

The submarine has lived in the lake for the last 20 years, since 1998, after it was given as a peace offering from Dunstable Council.

New redway speed limit

Bad news for cyclists, joggers or slow walkers – the council has announced new health and safety plans to enforce a new 4mph speed limit on our redways.

The exciting measure will mean anyone using the routes will not be allowed to go under or exceed the speed limit, or they could face a £50 fine or a ban. Locals are trying to find ways to blame Brexit.
