Scourge of the Biting Vole!
A report by Yohan Gert
Inhabitants of the planet Bex have been living in fear for the last two weeks, thanks to an unprecedented infestation of the Hephaestan Biting Vole. Local boffins blame unusually humid weather for the outbreak, which has seen large packs of Voles wandering unchallenged through the streets. Possessing a nasty venomous bite, and an even more unpleasant disposition, these manic mammals have already hospitalised 12,300 law-abiding citizens. Planetary stocks of Blood are very low, and more is required urgently.
