The Hospital’s Ghost

We’re not even out of January, and already the first "Silly Season" story is upon us: a senior manager at Derby’s new City Hospital is calling in an exorcist to rid the hospital of a ghost. Oh deary me (to echo Steve and Sebastian’s immortal words from The High Life).
 
Still, I think that the Guardian‘s deadpan reporting of the story, complete with a picture of a ghost ‘similar to the one that may be haunting Derby’s new hospital’, came the closest to treating the story with the level of seriousness that it deserves.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
