After a season of festering resentment she finally snapped in August and chose to interrupt the match in progress.

As part of the procssing, a DNA sample was taken and intensive investigation will be carried out to determine whether the cricket hating gene can be identified. It is suspected that this gene has long affected the behaviour of various minorities in the population including BBC TV programmers, Scottish MSPs, summer football campaigners and various other deviant sects. If the gene can be identified the possibility of suitable screening and treatment can be developed.
