You know that it's a slow news day in the middle of the silly season when you find non-stories like this on the BBC News website.

Essentially, someone has found a 62 year-old ex-Pat Briton in New Zealand who is not Lord Lucan. He says he's not, the police say he's not but:

Neighbour Margaret Harris said she became convinced he was Lord Lucan after seeing a picture of the peer in an old magazine.

She told TVNZ: "I spotted this piece and I thought 'oh my God, don't tell me that's who he is?'.

"I'm sure that is who he is because he is trying to make out he's a very poor man; poor my foot."
So that's all right then.

I'm sure it's not a new joke, but didn't Lucan hide in plain sight by singing for the inexplicably popular 70s-80s soft rock combo Queen?

Amazing coincidence, my elderly male neighbour is also not Lord Lucan.
