Muggles

The Guardian was a British Muggle daily newspaper. A few days after the attack on the Millennium Bridge in early July 1996, patrons at Treats were seen reading various papers, including The Guardian. That day, a large photo of the ruins of the bridge was featured on the front page,[1][2] under the headline "Bridge disaster hits London."[2] David Blishen took the photo seen on the front page in 1996.

Other front-page headlines from that day's issue were:[2]

  • "Bill Clinton: Exclusive interview on his European tour"
  • "Fresh and wild: Can you eat too much fruit?"
  • "US award to Dalai Lama angers China"
  • "25% of NHS trusts fail on hygiene code"
  • "IVF doctors: don't rely on frozen eggs"
  • "Rotherham in good shape for season"
