EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana was so worried about security at the Justus Lipsius building that he insisted on moving the Union's entire military staff into new secure offices. Now it seems his fears of infiltration have been vindicated.

Two female Anticis, ambassadors' highly regarded note-takers at weekly Coreper meetings, were waiting for a lift in the Council building when they spied a small white mouse. The Finnish diplomat, in an unusually vocal reaction for her soft-spoken nation, screamed with the volume of the housekeeper in the Tom and Jerry cartoons while her British counterpart, showing typical UK priorities, showed more concern about the welfare of the animal in question.
