Ginger drops digital radio

VIRGIN RADIO, the station run by maverick DJ Chris Evans, yesterday pulled out of the consortium bidding for the national digital radio service just days before its offer is due.

As one of the Tamworth Two was cornered in a Wiltshire garden last night, their owner relented and announced that he was willing to cut a deal with anyone who wanted to adopt his pigs.
