Jambo, are you okay?
Shwew. It's from Hertfordshire, so Jambo's probably not involved
Two Star Wars fans are in a critical condition in hospital after apparently trying to make light sabres by filling fluorescent light tubes with petrol.
A man, aged 20, and a girl of 17 are believed to have been filming a mock duel when they poured fuel into two glass tubes and lit it.
The pair were rushed to hospital after one of the devices exploded in woodland at Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.
What a good idea -- make your own light saber by pouring gasoline into a glass tube and igniting it. I'm only surprised they didn't include lemon juice and phosphorus. Now that would sting.
