Astronauts take over Primrose Hill
Rumours of a space invasion swept across north London as astronauts mysteriously cropped up in Tube stations and parks today (Tuesday, January 8).
Early morning commuters were stopped in their tracks as more than 15 spacemen marched up Primrose Hill - echoing a scene from War Of The Worlds.
And those taking the Tube to work were astonished to find themselves sitting next to galactic cowboys wearing full oxygen masks and white suits.
Twitter was afire with conspiracy, mulling on everything from NASA training to a TV advert.
Royal Parks, which manages Primrose Hill, had not been contacted about the astronaut invasion and Transport for London (TfL) had not heard about visitors from another realm.
