Stars Steal Show
Record crowds lined the banks of the Yara last weekend to watch the world acclaimed Tibetan waterskiing team preform for the Moomba festival. The anticipation that has been building since the group set the world record for the number of Cindys balancing on a single ski last month reached fever pitch, and officials were concerned that the weight of the fans gathered to watch the event might pose a structural threat to the newly constructed Burnley tunnel. There were fears the display would be cancelled, but pressure from sponsors and advertisers ensured that the spectacle proceeded as planned.

Following the lead of European pioneers in the cloning field, the scientists have named their creation 'Cindy'.

Race organisers have called for people to be more careful when watching the event, and encourages people to stand *behind* the concrete safety barriers, despite complaints that the view is not as spectacular.
