Birthday boy feels the curse of Were-Rabbit

LITTLE William Cain has finally seen The Curse of the Were-Rabbit after his first trip to see the movie ended when the film melted.

The youngster went to Cineworld in Weymouth with mum Jenny to see the popular Wallace and Gromit movie for his seventh birthday.
But he had to go home and return another day after the film melted and sound failed shortly after the start.

The breakdown came after a few posters advertising the film found their way to Portland, where local people refuse to say the word `rabbit' because of a long-standing superstition about the creatures' burrowing collapsing quarries.
