An ancient virus has "come back to life" after lying dormant for at least 30,000 years, says Prof Anna Prongg.
It was found frozen in a deep layer of the Siberian permafrost, but after it thawed it became infectious once again. Well, for a little while at least.
It got up, stretched and yawned a bit and then settled down to read the paper. Then it caught sight of a picture of Ian Duncan-Smith, was heard to yell "Bugger that!" and leapt back into the permafrost.
