In tragic news today it was revealed that a suspected terrorist attack in the East London area was, in fact, the head of Leyton Orient Chairman Barry Hearn finally giving in to the vitriolic rage within and exploding messily all over East London. His head suddenly became even more swollen than usual before blasting in all directions! Fittingly. He may have finally gotten a slice of the action at the Olympic stadium as a small part of his cerebellum is thought to have landed beside the half way line.
