Editor of the acclaimed music website, Drowned in Sound has admitted inventing news stories to impress his online friends or 'e-buddies'.
The stories unfolded 24 minutes ago via the message-board of Drowned in Sound itself. 21-year-old Colin Roberts, who had previously worked as a customer service assistant on London's popular 'Underground' train network spoke to reporters earlier, who were hanging around outside his Islington flat, kicking a can.
"I'm sorry for what I have done, but I am not sorry for what has happened as a result."
Since the publishing of the articles via the Drowned in Sound website, three Polo mints have been found in a tomb in Egypt, and a sexless unidentifiable male creature gave birth to quintuplets at London's Chester Zoo.
