Moustachioed maestro's tech temple takes off

There was bad news from Surrey this morning with news that Gordon Murray’s entire office has blown away.

Local sources say the complete building, which is made from balsa wood and paper, simply took off into the sky, “like in that movie Up. But without the balloons”.

Surrey police are as yet unable to confirm if Gordon Murray himself was inside the building at the time, seated centrally at his specially made cardboard desk.

What is certain is that the building contained several priceless prototypes, along with Murray’s supplies of Quavers, which are the only foodstuffs permitted on the premises.

“We don’t know how an entire building can simply blow away,” said a spokesman for Surrey Fire Service. “We think maybe it was too light”.
