UK Ironic Headline Of The Day

Not an April 1 joke:

"Former NHS director dies after operation is cancelled four times at her own hospital":
A former NHS director died after waiting for nine months for an operation -- at her own hospital.

Margaret Hutchon, a former mayor, had been waiting since last June for a follow-up stomach operation at Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford, Essex.

But her appointments to go under the knife were cancelled four times and she barely regained consciousness after finally having surgery.
