Dozens Kissed in yet another Dementor attack

02/07/1981 - Yesterday afternoon, England was host to yet another brutal Dementor attack - the fourth in the past few months. Birkenbaum Leisure Centre, Buckinghamshire, a popular pool and recreation hub, was infiltrated by a pack of the creatures during the mid-day rush. Early reports indicate that there have been at least twenty-four casualties, ten of those children. Though life-guards attempted to drive back the monsters, the area was too vast, and the open water ultimately indefensible. Eyewitness accounts state that the Dementors hovered above the water's edge, waiting for frightened swimmers to surface for air. Several of the victims drowned in their attempt at evasion.

The leisure centre has been protected since it was built in 1920 by a series of wards hiding it from the eyes of it's muggle neighbours, protecting it against burglary and keeping admission regulated to create a safe family environment. The wards did not appear to be damaged in any way before the attack, but on further inspection it has been found that key elements of the facility's security had been timed precisely to disable themselves that afternoon. Authorities say that there is no blame to be found in the centre's safety regulations, citing obvious links to previous attacks - orchestrated by lycanthrope extremists. It is not clear at this time if the new surveillance of registered werewolves will contribute to the investigation, or if the DMLE has detected a magical signature.

Though names of the victims have not been released to the public, Brikbaum staff have extended their sincere sympathy and have allocated a portion of their profits to the affected families.
