A school was forced to cancel its sports day after rabbits invaded the playing field.

Head teacher Craig Watson has decided to seal off the grass his pupils aged between nine and 13 play on during recreation, lessons and after school after a group of bunnies began digging holes all over place -- meaning kids were falling over.

Writing in a letter to parents, Mr Watson said: "You may be aware of the ongoing timeshare arrangement we have with rabbits and our school field.

"We have always shared the field with our furry friends but this year, there are significantly more than ever before and they are digging countless holes. As fast as we fill the holes, more are dug. Despite successfully culling a large number, there remains a significant number which are still causing ongoing damage.

"There have been a few instances of children stumbling into a rabbit hole and hurting themselves and obviously, we cannot risk further, more serious injury to children or visitors to school. This decision has not been taken lightly. We know how much children enjoy using the field for lessons, clubs and socially. However, their health and safety is of paramount importance."

This isn't the first time the bunnies have invaded Cranborne Middle School in Dorset as the furry creatures started to invade several years ago.

Their new home wasn't a problem at first but they've been multiplying more and more and now there's too many holes to keep the field open safely.

Mr Watson hopes to have the field back in action in time for September.

A charity shop is begging people to stop donating Dan Brown's mystery detective novel 'The Da Vinci Code'.

The Telegraph reports the Oxfam store in Swansea said they are struggling to sell copies of the novel and are asking people to offer other books or vinyl records instead.

A sign in the shop says: 'You could give us another 'The Da Vinci Code' ... but we would rather have your vinyl! We urgently need more records to help keep our customers happy ... and make more money for Oxfam.'

Women have been spotted wearing outfits made entirely of duct tape on nights out.

The bizarre new trend has been made famous by Black Tape Project, a US firm spearheaded by Miami artist Joel Alvarez, who tapes up models who then go to spice up club nights with their revealing "outfits".

The eye-catching outfits have attracted more than 169,000 followers on Instagram.

Over the years it has built up its reputation having tape designs in Las Vegas, New York City, the Caribbean and Europe.

The creators of the Sex Robot say they are much more than a sexual object.

Matt McMullen, chief executive of Abyss Creations, which makes RealDoll, says they actually have different personalities too.

He told BBC News: "Many people who may buy a RealDoll because it is sexually capable come to realise it is much more than a sex toy.

It has a presence in their house and they imagine a personality for her. AI gives people the tools to create that personality."
