BORIS JOHNSON AND ED MILLIBAND must have been rubbing their hands and doing little jigs around the room at around 4.35pm BST Monday, as one website published a story annnouncing prime minister David Cameron's resignation.

The Wales Online article asked readers to stay tuned to its live coverage of the shock departure, and claimed that "the government is rocked by news of David Cameron's resignation".


There wasn't a huge amount of detail to the story, aside from the news from Downing Street that Cameron had resigned, and a promise that a statement from the exiting prime minister would follow.

The story was published around 4.35pm, and was finally taken down at around 5.10pm.

Wales Online has tweeted an apology, explaining it was part of a training exercise.

No doubt Boris and Ed will expect personal apologies for ruining what was their best news of the year. µ
