    :eek: Thats Insane !!

    Did you find that on the BBC site yourself Tons? I only ask because I went upstairs to show this to a housemate and we couldnt find it via the BBC news search engine, and then I noticed that your link starts with what looks like an IP address.. Could it be a hoax?

    Kev

    EDIT: infact if you tracert to that IP address it appears to be nothing to do with the BBC :lesson: - PHEW! :thumbsup:

    Yeah- It originated from my sister in law who works on a Gamecube magazine- I think it is something to do with a Res Evil release.

    It's not on the BBC site... it's spoofed to look that way. Check out the address.

    BBC reconciles to http://212.58.226.44/ not http://65.127.124.62 ;)
