A group of Slough Civil Servants working on collating census information thought it was just going to be another humdrum, 9.17 to 4.48 day at the office.
But that changed when Hilary Peters, 48, realised that one of the names living at Number 28 Nasturtium Parade, Carshalton, was none other than fugitive tyrant Osama Bin Laden.
“I felt like I’d found a Willy Wonka Golden Ticket,” gushed Miss Peters. “Certainly trumps Dennis Conway’s locating of Elvis Presley in Hunstanton the day before yesterday.”
“They’d better move fast,” said Miss Peters, otherwise he’ll just climb aboard Shergar, who lives four doors down at Number 36, and ride off into the sunset.”
