Japanese Circus Act Comes to Town
- Tourists mistake Big Top for Dome

JUST when you thought stories about the Dome couldn't get more ridiculous, news comes through that a group of Japanese tourists mistook a circus tent for the Greenwich white elephant.

The group apparently complained to organisers of Billy Smart's circus in south east London that the big top they found themselves in wasn't as big as it had been made out to be. Disappointment was also recorded over a giant inflatable clown that the visitors took to be the Dome's famous the body zone.

Meanwhile, two people have been arrested in connection with a fraud case involving alleged shady dealings for some of the Dome's building contracts.
