READ ALL ABOUT IT: Genius Inventor Discovers New Way To Travel!

A new and innovative way to travel has this very week been invented by London based inventor, Samuel Diggle. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No – it’s the magnificent eco-friendly flying machine ‘Zepper 2015’!

For years, scientists and inventors have been striving to ‘scratch’ the current global ‘itch’ that is sustainable and eco-friendly energy. This could finally be it! Diggle’s new creation is not only cheap to construct, but relies solely upon natural energy sources! When interviewed yesterday morning on national television, Diggle delightedly spoke of his invention: “I believe I really am the most extraordinary man on the planet! My invention will change the way people travel, and change the way the World works. Sustainable energy, reduced carbon emissions and cleaner travel! I’m very proud of myself, and certainly can’t wait to see people using the Zepper 2015 in their everyday lives!”

Time will tell whether Diggle’s self-proclaimed brilliance is indeed brilliant, or whether it is, in fact, a load of ‘hot air’!

Can you write your own newspaper article about Samuel Diggle’s new invention?

Alternatively, you could write a persuasive leaflet or poster, advertising the Zepper 2015.

You could even write a balanced argument: Is the Zepper 2015 better for the world than current modes of transport?
