Grandma watches looping video on Mail Online for seven hours

A GRANDMOTHER has been watching a 16-second video loop on the front page of Mail Online for almost seven hours, her family has discovered. 

Eleanor Shaw began watching the video on her iPad, a present for her 80th birthday last week, when she awoke this morning and said she did not want to be rude and leave before it finished.

She continued: “I couldn’t believe my eyes at first. A moving picture in a newspaper. It amazes me what they do these days.

“It was a man going down a street that was flooded, and it did seem familiar. I wondered if it was valley bottom where the Queen’s Mill was, you know, near where Hanson’s Fair used to pitch up.

“I do like to watch the world go by, so I settled with a cup of tea and enjoyed it for a little bit. The man seemed very familiar after a while, like I’d seen him before, and I thought perhaps it was Dora’s eldest and got on the blower to ask.

“Well apparently my grandson says it was the same man over and over, though I don’t know if that’s right. Still, it was better than all this swearing and filth on the television these days, like Strictly Come Dancing.
