"In the middle of a British swampland, not far from the Innercity, is a rectangular iron gate.

"Earth has captured an asteroid that's spending time in space acting as a mini-moon, or baby moon, to our planet.  "Orbit integrations...indicate that this object is temporarily bound to the Earth," the IAU filing reads.

North Bay 2020

The North Bay, which paves the way for a North Bay Wall as Benchmark is set to leave the bloc on the 31st December 2020, is now awaiting royal assent.  Local residents said  the Sands could now "move forwards as one" and put "years of rancour and division behind it".
