Breaking news: Cornwall surprisingly close to the Antarctic

A generation of confused Britons was vindicated today as it emerged that the Falkland Islands are indeed off the coast of Cornwall, as many originally assumed. Long-standing suspicions about the Islands' exact whereabouts were confirmed today with news that the Falmouth Coastguard had helped to rescue 150 passengers from a stricken cruise liner in the Antarctic Ocean - 800 miles south of the Falkland Islands.
Befuddled Briton, 46 year old Sarah Reid described herself as relieved on hearing the news: "I've been confused since 1982 - this really puts my mind at rest".
