5 December 2016 – what’s the story behind door number five?

From bathroom scales to fat squirrels! Only fooling you!

Yesterday we reminded you about work we did for The One Show on bathroom scales. Today we recall the story about an urban gym being created for portly squirrels at the University of Nottingham. It was eventually unveiled as an April Fool. The University of Nottingham published the story on their website and social media feeds shortly after midnight on 1 April 2016. Shortly afterwards #Fatsquirrels was trending in Nottingham with social media users enjoying the images of the tubby rodents!

Who opened the door?

A big thank you to Liam Jones, one of the gardeners who look after our award winning campuses, for opening door number five on the digital calendar.
