    Imagine you were a newspaper editor/journalist. Perish the thought of course. But just let's imagine. What headline would you love to write? Me, I would love to write the headline: LOOTING IN LUTON.

    It is often said that the best newspaper headline ever appeared on the front page of the Sun in the early 1980s; FREDDIE STARR ATE MY HAMPSTER. Just a pity it wasn't true.

    It is true it was a Sun front page.

    But even in the original Sun story Starr said he hadn't eaten a hamster.

    For HAMPSTER please read HAMSTER

    Sorry about my mistake. Phonetic spelling took over.
