THESE puppies are absolutely adorable, it has been confirmed.

As the UK and international news agendas maintained consistent levels of misery, these little Labrador puppies remained so cute you could just eat them up.

It is understood one of the puppies likes to chase his tail while another is developing quite an appetite for old slippers.

Sources close to the puppies revealed that at this age they like to sleep a lot, which is just as well because when they are awake it is ‘complete chaos around here’.

The puppies’ official spokeswoman said: “We vewwy sowwy we poo-pooed in your shoe again. We wuv you.”

The puppies are currently sleeping all curled up together in a big box and have not been caught up in a brutal war or racially abused by a French Nazi.

Huge, Disgusting Insects On Brink Of Extinction

ENORMOUS, terrifying tropical insects that are the stuff of nightmares may at last be on the brink of extinction, it was claimed last night.

According to the Worldwide Fund for Nature, the endangered list finally includes a range of huge, poisonous beetles and a stick insect that is bigger than a cat.

A WWF spokesman said: "Ooooooooh, that is the mankiest thing I have ever seen. It's got feelers coming out of both ends. Is it on me? IS IT ON ME?"

He added: "Look at the bloody size of it. It's going to eat my eyes! Take it away! TAKE IT AWAY!"

Tom Logan, a sales executive from High Wycombe, said: "Oh thank Christ for that.

"When I was a kid I used to dream about travelling to far off, tropical places where I would have adventures and go swimming in secluded pirate coves, but then I saw Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

"I know that Margate may not be the most glamorous of summer holiday destinations but at least I'm not going to be chased around the breakfast room by a flying ant, the size of a water melon.

"The sooner these things are erased from history, the sooner I can buy some new flippers."
