Bournemouth panto hit by e-mail ticket scam

Thousands of computers have been exposed to a virus after they received a scam email about booking tickets to see a pantomime in Bournemouth this Christmas.

The email, purportedly from BH Live Tickets, claims to have tickets for Peter Pan at the Bournemouth Pavilion Theatre attached.

But clicking on the attachment will instead download a zip file containing the virus.

BH Live Tickets said they had received "a high-volume of calls" since yesterday morning about the email and confirmed it had not originated from them.

More details shortly.

Oh Yes We Can!

It was an annual tradition that began in the 1950s: the Royal Marines put on a pantomime at their barracks at Deal in Kent. But when they relocated to Portsmouth sixteen years ago, the Pantos stopped.

Now, former Marines still living in Deal have revived the idea - and "The Wizard Who's Odd" starts tonight. David Johns has been to see rehearsals and spoke to Wally Walters ("Royal Maureen"), Alan Upton ("Dorrity") and Brian Short (writer and director)

Royal Marines tread the boards

An annual tradition that began in the 1950s where the Royal Marines put on a pantomime at their barracks in Deal in Kent has been revived.

When the unit relocated to Portsmouth fifteen years ago, the panto ended. But now, ex-Marines still living in Deal have re-launched the panto. David Johns has been speaking to Brian Short and Alan Upton.
