  • Description

    THE FABULOUS BEATLES PROVOKED A MINOR RIOT IN LONDON TODAY. THEY HAVE BEEN DOING THAT FOR YEARS OF COURSE, BUT TODAY IT WAS THE WAY THEY DID IT THAT WAS DIFFERENT....THEY GAVE AWAY THE ENTIRE STOCK OF THEIR WEST END BOUTIQUE, NAMED SIMPLY "APPLE".

    TWENTY THOUSAND STERLING IN MULTI-COLOURED DRESSES AND WAY-OUT OUTFITS WAS CARRIED FROM THE SHOP BY TEENAGERS WHO TOOK THE BEATLES AT THEIR WORD WHEN THEY ANNOUNCED YESTERDAY THEY WERE GIVING UP THE BOUTIQUE BUSINESS AND GIVING AWAY THE STOCK.

    POLICE WERE CALLED TO CONTROL THE CROWDS LET THE TEENAGERS INTO THE SHOP IN A STEADY STREAM. INSIDE, THE CUSTOMERS WERE EACH GIVEN A CARRIER BAG AND ALLOWED TO SELECT ONE ITEM EACH -- FOR NOTHING.

    IN A COUPLE OF HOURS, THE SHOP WAS STRIPPED AND SWEATING STAFF COLLAPSES ON PILES OF EMPTY HANGERS.

    EVEN THE VISNEWS PHOTOGRAPHER GOT CAUGHT UP IN THE FRENZY OF THE THING......
