Fleas force radio station to close

BBC News:

Cyprus state radio has been forced to suspend live programming after an infestation of fleas, attributed to scores of stray cats that live around the station’s premises.


“The problem with the cats is causing a terrible situation, there are hundreds of them and they are running into the studios and onto the roof,” one reporter said.

“At one point, a cat fell through the roof and landed on someone’s head.”

The infestation was first noticed when CyBC staff reported sick and the cause of the illness was traced to the flea-ridden strays.


“The dog should also go.”

According to the French news agency AFP, the station’s unofficial mascot, Rika the poodle, is also believed to be a culprit.
