Ravens locked up in Tower!
Tourists are beginning to ask what's happened to the famous ravens in the Tower of London. These birds and their forebears have been strutting round the Tower lawns for centuries, thanks to a superstition that the British Monarchy and Empire will fall if the ravens desert the Tower. (What Empire? you may well ask. Never mind.) The answer is that the Tower's Yeoman Raven Master has brought them indoors as a precaution against bird flu. Baldrick & Co are now housed in specially built aviaries in one of the towers. Hard luck, chaps, but it's for your own good.
