FREED VERSE strapline

Breaking news,Breaking news,Breaking news,Breaking news KING OF JEWS CRUCIFIED BY MARC ARCHIPPUS Jerusalem Friday Jesus(33) labelled by,Pilate,the Roman prefect as the 'King of the Jews' was crucified here this afternoon. Crowds watched the execution,including the mother of Jesus,some relatives and his Nazarene followers. As the week is Passover ,his body had to be taken from the cross before tomorrow' s Shabat holy day. After the body was taken for burial,I obtained an exclusive interview with Simon Peter(30),deputy leader of the Nazarene sect.This fisherman from Capernaum said he had been with Jesus for the past three years. He disclosed these Nazarenes,from the northern province, who he describe as 'disciples',would be staying put in the city for a short time,to re-group and await further revelations that would take their revolution to its next stage in Judea and elsewhere. Other groups in Judea have made similar exaggerated claims to me in the past,all of which have come to nothing!
