DOVES fell from above at a newspaper office and into the pages of the newspaper – quite literally!
The pair of baby doves had a lucky escape when they fell 20 feet on to a roll of paper on which the Evening Star is printed.
The birds, described as collared doves, are about three weeks old and had built a nest in one of the supporting girders at the back of the Evening Star printing press.
However, they fell and landed on a large roll of paper but fortunately they were unhurt.
