In what some newspapers have ambitiously called "a major security breach" a jogger in Leeds nearly bumped into Prime Minister David Cameron today.
"David Cameron attacked in street” cried the Daily Mail, calling it a "shocking security lapse”.
There was reportedly minimal contact and after answering a few questions from the police the jogger was let go while the Prime Minister went about his business without a scratch on him.
That didn’t stop calls for an urgent inquiry. "What if the protester had been carrying a knife?" asked Mark Pritchard MP, ignoring the fact the man wasn't a "protester".
Sky News presenter Kay Burley also wasn't hanging around waiting for all the facts. She jumped straight past 'what if...?' questions about guns and knives and saw fit to read out a tweet wondering what might happen if the man had Ebola.
It's hard to know for sure of course, and I'm no medical expert, but I'm guessing he maybe wouldn't be out jogging. Or are joggers with Ebola the new threat facing the UK?
Meanwhile, the Telegraph speculated that the attack was "possibly in response to Mr Cameron's involvement in the launch of a new high-speed rail link".
If anything, that short-lived theory showed a disappointing level of creativity on the part of the Telegraph. Surely with a blank canvas upon which to speculate they could have come up with something a bit more interesting than a theory about trains.
