‘NEWS that the latest Harry Potter book has been stolen has reached the Express.

A stolen copy of Harry Potter & The Islamic Fundamentalists

A gang of daring thieves (surely despicable) have nicked around 8,000 copies of the latest Potter adventure.

The Sun also covers this heinous crime, but tells its readers the more shocking news that one of the Potter gang has been killed off.

JK Rowling, the inventor of the nerdish Potter, is heard in conversation with the BBC’s Jeremy Paxman.

In the course of the interview, Rowling speaks of how she cried when her pen sentenced the character to death.

She recalls the pain of telling her husband, Neil Murray. ”Well, don’t do it then,” he said. ”Well, it just doesn’t work like that. You are writing children’s books, you need to be a ruthless killer.”

But who is dead? Who has been killed? Thankfully, we have just taken delivery of a book that tells all.

”Harry Potter wondered who had sent the dirty bomb to his school…” Oh well, we can only live in hope…
