I heard about that too. Seems that they're going to use a wonderful breed of carrier pigeons for top secret messages. You've never heard of a pigeon being hacked have you?

The lads at the Tower actually went to the trouble of recording a video to tweet out. It's funny enough to deserve a look at:

I got a belly laugh imagining the filming and editing of the video. I'll bet the crew are a lot of fun to be around. Chris Skaife certainly is a good actor; very funny!

Oh sheesh... that is too funny. How the heck Chris ever kept a straight face to look so serious about his new "position" escapes me. Very well done!

So very good. Nothing like an excellent bit of very dry Brit wit to start the day!

A man managed to enter the Tower of London at around 10.50pm on Saturday 6 April - hours after it closed.
