Sensationalist headlines sell papers, this we know, but this is taking it to a new level.

The Courier, a local Dundee newspaper, has been doing the rounds on social media, and it doesn't take long to see why.

Here's a copy of one of their recent headlines which made its way on to Imgur.

As it turns out the headline had been doctored. Speaking to i100, the paper's news editor, Alan Richardson, said "if you actually look closely you can see the lines... Some cheeky scamp has come along and taken his chances".

Sure, likely excuse, Alan.
