Sun chews up BBC's stolen hamster story

The Sun's most famous front page might be "Freddie Starr Ate My Hamster" but today it indulges in a bout of BBC bashing after Auntie's 24-hour News Channel ran the sensational breaking news ..."Lassie the hamster had been stolen from a flat in Stourport-on-Severn".
An outraged Sun reports: "Bulletins on the turmoil in Gaza and a third Heathrow runway gave way to a shock-horror news ticker along the bottom of the screen screaming:HAMSTER THEFT."
Despite mocking the "BBC chews flash," The Sun asks readers today to phone the paper if they know where Lassie is.
Oh, and The Sun's splash today? Is it the turmoil in Gaza or third Heathrow runway? No its "NASA scientists last night confirmed that there probably IS life on Mars".
