Eight of the best drinks-related April Fools

Kraken – Giant Kraken spotted on the Thames

The label of rum-brand Kraken came to life this weekend when the 14m, squid-like creature was spotted clinging onto a pleasure cruiser on the river Thames. The cephalopod was spotted as it hitched a ride on tourist boat The Golden Star as it passed King George V Docks.

Michael Buerk commented: “Experts have been searching for years for the beast from the deep, and it has popped up here in central London, it is an extraordinary sighting and I had to come down and be first to bank the story.  We’ve already seen our news feed picked up by other networks around the world.”

Thames authorities confirmed that the boat was at no time at risk and the passengers are safe and well.
