    Misplaced OOTP script recovered

    A trucker, Colin Kemp, recently stumbled across a script for the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix movie on a slip road just outside Chipstead. He was apparently shocked to discover the highly confidential document and promptly handed it over to The Sun. Last week, Warner Bros. reported it missing after an employee conceded to misplacing it. According to a WB spokesman: "We are very grateful for the safe return of our script. Obviously, we take the security of our Harry Potter scripts very seriously and informed the police immediately when one was misplaced."
