It's all too easy to write a headline that has more than one meaning, or only makes sense after you've read the story. Or one that is just plain bizarre – as some of these examples prove.
Part 1: This is (nearly) the news
A headline needs to explain to the reader why the story is important, something this group of headline writers didn't quite achieve.
Part 2: I know what you mean, but...
Headlines that make you think twice about the story – and not always in a good way.
Part 3: I don't know what you mean...
Sometimes the headline just doesn't explain the story at all
Part 4: Look, then look again
Check and check again. Everything seems fine with these stories – until you look carefully
Part 5: Subs were asleep
Occasionally the grey cardigan brigade drop the ball and a disaster happens – the writer's own words get into print. And sometimes we wish they hadn't.
