"Seems it happens all the time. Took the Muggles an hour and a half to realise the train had vanished into thin air."
-- Ministry of Magic source (DP2)
The disappearance of a Muggle “tube train” leads to the suspension of a Ministry of Magic employee. The unnamed Daily Prophet reporter reveals that the offender is the Minister of Magic’s nephew, Rufus Fudge, who did it for a bet.
Questions are also being asked whether the Ministry’s commitment to eradicating anti-Muggle bias is serious (DP2).
Although the date printed on the second Daily Prophet Newsletter (DP2) is 8 February 1999, the timeframe for this event is 1992-1993.
