A world exclusive here, folks, and the British are at the forefront of technology once again. You're witnessing the trials for the world's first land submarine, a brilliant invention by Birkenhead inventor and all around clever bloke, Joe King.
This photograph, taken recently during the trials, clearly shows the tower on the surface, ready to test the capability for a full submersion. An excited Mr King said, "just think of the possibilities. If this is a success, and I fully expect it will be, then it could mean the end of road congestion forever. In fact, it could be the end of the road system as we know it. We could all have some nice green fields back, and a lawn between our houses instead of tarmac".
It could also mean a much needed shot in the arm for the largely abandoned Camell Laird
Shipyard, where the prototype was built in absolute secracy. We even managed to keep Roger the can-lad from telling his mum, on the promise that he can be cabin boy when she sails.
Wirral Borough Council welcomed this idea, as grass is a lot cheaper to maintain than tarmac, and you can pay some old bloke from down the road 50p an hour to mow it.
You heard it here first folks. More in your daily "Scunner".
