Just to say that if anyone is wondering why there's been no breaking news on the site for the past couple of days, it's simply that we're short staffed and facing an impending deadline.

Normal service should be resumed tomorrow, but do expect the odd interruption over the next couple of weeks as we await Jen's return...

Jen hasn't been abducted, honest.

In fact, I had an email from her just a couple of days ago. She had just spent four days travelling up the Amazon - it wasn't like a Herzog film but incredibly dull and rained a lot. She should be in La Paz by now.

Nick in today, so news will appear at some point!

I thought you were still trying to differentiate between April Fool's and those news stories that are real! Laughing

She'll be eaten by giant snakes or piranhas!

Why has the story about Lisa Nowak been included in today's Breaking News?
